Lenten series�?6 the builders of Faith in the City of Man there is still a Bank with a Cross above its to o o r where in e a borrow Money from a window they swear is by David Poling the Christian Church faced the demands and necessities of organization right at the Start. Operations meetings travel correspondence offerings a All these were part of the growing religious Community. St. Paul rightfully lists administrators As essential members of the Christian leadership team. Indeed in one of his letters he Speaks of the Burden of oversight and administration of the Young churches in Asia minor.

He believed that the Church constantly required renewal and recovery a often delivered from the critics standing outside. On the other hand Lowry was aware that Many secularists were forgetful of the religious heritage that shaped and sustained their present foundation. His classic sentence stands a in the City of Man there is still a Bank with a Cross above its door where men borrow Money from a window they swear is next week speaker in tongues
