UNDER THE CROSS AND TRIANGLE
J. H. DOWNIE
THE GREAT DAYS HAVE COME
TWO GOOD SERMONS.
I have always been proud to be an American, and was never more
proud than now, when all that we have said and all that we have fore
seen about our people is coming true. The great days have come when t
only , thing that they ask for or iv mire is duty greatly and adequate y
done; when their only wish for America is that she may share the free
dom she enjoys; when a great compelling sympathy wells up in their
hearts for men everywhere who suffer and are oppressed; and when they
see at last the high uses for which their wealth has been piled up and
their mighty power accumulated and, counting neither blood nor treas
ure now that their final day of opportunity has come, rejoice to spend
and to be spent through a long night of suffering and terror in order thrt
they and men everywhere may see the dawn of a day of righteuosness
and justice and peace. Shall we grow weary when tlxey bid us act?—
Two strong and impressive sermons
were given at the ‘'Y” last Sundya.
The morning service was deliverel
by Dr. David Younts, Lutheran Camp
Pastor and it brought a strong mes
sage of faith to his audience.
The religious service in the even
ing was in charge of Camp Secretary,
J. T. Mangum. He preached a strong
sermon that made a lasting impres
sion upon his auditors.
