RMONS .... too many
.'he . Rev. F'rederick S. Fleming,
ctor of Trinity Church, New
rk, America’s wealthiest parish,
iposed the other day that the
irches should declare a morato-
m on preaching. “Tliiere are too
,ny sermo,ns,” he said, “and they
: usually the least important and
cresting part of the church .
' am inclined to think that Dr. j
iming^s rig’ht. 1 have beeu listen- j
; to sesjmons all my life and the |
illy interesting and vital o,nes that
have heard 1 could count on my j
igers and toes. Dr. Fleming thinks |
It the sermon is a survival from ;
e old days when few people could |
ad and that it has na place in
)dern religious observances. j
I believe a sermonle»s church ,
rvice could draw much larger
ngregations and be more inspir-
g than most of the present day
rvices are. Preachers, like every-
idy else, should talk only when
ey have something of consequence
OUTH .... idon’t lecture
Another point which Dr. Fleming
ade in ;his annual report is that
lurches [generally are ,not handling
e problem of youth intelligently
■ effectively. “The Christian re-
, FRl.-SAT., AUG. 21-22
ligion,” he says, “needs a youth
“Youth is not afraid of religion,”
he says, “nor is it indifferent. But
it hates sham .and unreality.”
,1 have been keenly interested in
observing the reactions of a con
siderable group of young people
toward the churches and I think
that Dr. Fleming is right in this.
The first obligation of the church
is unquestionably to the young
])Cople, and the churches that 1
k»ow of which are discharging that
obligation the most effectively are
those which encocrage youth to de
velop and utilize its own energy and
intelligence—and don’t lecture them
SKIING Jufly 29th
A friend of mine has just sent me
a photograph of his young son,
taken o,n the 29th of July. The in
teresting thing about the picture is
that the boy is sliding downhill on
skiis on snow that appears to be
several feet deep.
The picture was taken on Alt.
Baker, Washington. Aly friend and
his son have been exploring the
Sunmier skiing possibilities of the
Northwest, and report that Air.
Baker, Alt. Rainier and Alt. Hood

in Austrian Tyrol, where many
Americans go for Winter sports in

There was no evidence whatever
that the dog was vicious. He was
doing just what any dog, used to
playing with boys, might have done.
What makes the whole affair so
silly is that otherwise sensible
people acted as if a dog were a re
sponsible human being. The notion
that animals have human attributes,
think human thoughts or act from
human motives is a popular and
widely-held absurdity, fostered by
tales of the “bed-time story” type.
Sometimes 1 think that most
people never grow up.
