was a Trustee at Clinton College,
Rock Hill. S. C spoke on the sub
ject. "A Return to God’s Altar."
His text was taken from Psnlrn 96:9
"O Worship the Lord in ihe Beauty
Said the pastor, "However vile,
lustful, and vain man might have
lived in the past, the story of his
religion reveals the fact that al
though living in a very dark pe
riod, he was not a worthless crea
ture. Rites and ceremonies made
worship quite difficult for him,
but history has made us rich by
leaving the records of s race who
had some form of worship. In early
times, men worshipped by cele
brating marriages, births and
deaths. These worship services
were efforts of primitive man to
link himself with the Divine, and
bring peace to his troubled mind.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of
Elements in Worship (The three
elements in worship are: a. Adora
tion; b. Inquiry; c. Allegiance. Ad
oration is to pay honor to the
Divine Beinc. At God's Altar, one
is lifted to a high level of adora
tion whereby he is able to see life
in a more true prospective. Adora
tion makes the problem of faith
and duty more plain to us. This
98th Psalm points to the fact that i
when David felt his faith waver
ing, he went into the sanctuary
and honored God by confessing his
sins. In his confession, he said,

By Inquiry, we mean seek, and
ask about, and make examination
of. Speaking of inquiry, David also
said that there was one thing he
desired of the Lord, and that was
that he might dwell in the house
of the Lord all the days of his life,
in order to behold the beauty of
the Lord, and to inquire in his
temple. The Lord's house is the
place where his presence is espec
ially manifested. Those who know
the Lord, also know that there is
no home like being by their Sav
iour's side in His house.
Allegiance means that God is
entitled to our obedience, services,
and respect. The blessed Lenten
season should remind us of many
blessings which the Almighty God
has given us. Take a new oath of
allegiance and. form a new union
n. The Need to Return to God's
Altar. There never was an age
when we find ourselves more har
nessed to mechanical tasks as the
age in which we now live. Because
we live too much in the exterior
of things, the unseen forces of life
seem unreal to many of us. My
earnest plea is that we return to
God's altar for it points the way to
that force which unifies man with
God. To form a new union with
God. Attitudes must be changed
Worship is more than attitude, it
is on atmosphere in which the
heart is made more pure and the
mind is made more clear. God's
Altar teaches us how to think holy
thoughts and perform holy altar.
Here, evil imaginations take their
flight when we, out of pure hearts,
and sincere desires, call upon the
magic name of Christ.
111. Harmonious Worship. Ac
cording to the law of harmony,
beauty is n combination of ele
ments. The more perfect that har
monious combination, the greater
the beauty will be. From this, it is
clear that the elements in worship
that make it holy In the sight of
God and man, is worship in which
no evil exists
There may be different views as
to ihe ultimate authority for the
different forms of worship, but if
if is to be holy, the spirit of self
will must be completely excluded
from the mind. God grant that we
come into His court with clean
minds, as well as with clean bodies.
When this is done, our worship
will l>e indeed beautiful and holy,
