What is the relation of the Sunday School. to other agencies in religious training? The home has been spoken of-as-the natural place in which such instruction should be given; also it has -been said that the Sunday school has been' forced to supply the need created by inadequate or inefficient home life. This threw large respon- sibility, in fact almost too much, upon school., Proceeding, the Rev. gentlein-au referred to "the King- dom" as the great ideal of the church. It is a growing conception spiritual in its origin and -operations and It Is infusing the kingdom idea into ev-ery part of modern.life. The work of the church is to prepare members for that kingdom, to train and eciuip men and women, boys and girls, who will fill their places in the world of Christian usefulness. Con- tinuing, Mr. Wooilsworth said: am glad that the public school system is that tho teacher In the public school IB io often the teacher in the Sunday school.
