The sermon for the morning service
of November the 27j:h was a continua
tion of the theme—The Christian Life.
The phase discussed this Sunday was:
the Resources. The first of these is
found in the knowledge of our crea
tion. The fact that we know we were
created by the Divine author of life.
The second resource is our will power—
our capacity to do right. Another re
source is the abundance of spiritual
good which we are afforded. Still an
other resource is the victories of life.
The resources are plentiful, and we
have only to' avail ourselve? of them
to realize the greatest benefits.
The evening service was held under
the auspices of the Ministerial Associa
tion with Clyde Fousliee presiding.
The address of the evening was schedul
ed to be given by Dr. Samuel B. Tur-
rcntine, President of Greensbora Col
lege for Women, who was, however,
unable to be here. Dr. Jay was called
on to give an impromptu speech, and
took as his theme The Ministerial Asso
ciation. The Ministerial Association is
one of the most important on the hill.
The college is fortunate to have min
isterial students within its midst. Re
ference was made to the book, ‘‘Borden
of Yale.” Borden was a very im
portant member of sucb a ministerial
association as we have here. There is
a great work for an organization of
this kind in any institution. The boys
here have so organized themselves that
they can go out in groups or bands and
hold meetings. There is evidence that
the organization is functioning. Dr.
Jay stressed the importance of a thor
ough preparation so that great hopes
for the future may be had. We can
not make our lives count too much.
“Let us aim high.” Do the best you
can to be a credit to the profession you
