On Work Of

At Lake Junaluska
Giving the first of a series of
sermons under the general theme,
Do thou the work of an evange

Hamilton, of St. Petersburg,
Horida, minister of Pasadena,
Florida's nationally-known outdoor
community church preached from
the pulpit of the Lake Junaluska
Running concurrently with the
Sunday tb.ougli Thrusday sermon
scries by Dr. Hamilton, the As
sembly's first summer seminar on
Church Music and Worship was
scheduled to get under way here
today under the direction of Dr.
John Finley Williamson, of Prince
ton, N. J., where he is president
and founder of the Westminster
Choir College, connected with
Princeton University. Ministers,
choirmasters, choir members and
musicians from many sections were
arriving today for the seminars
which are an innovation in the
sumer program of the Junaluska
Assembly. Among early arrivals
among choirmasters are John
Lewis and Priestly Miller, of Nash
ville. The purpose of the church and
music week, according to Dr. F. S.
Love, superintendent, who has cal
endared the meet, is to promote
a better appreciation of the place
of music in church worship. Dr.
Williams' courses will include
Chorie speech, congregational sing
ing, and choir singing. Enrollment
for courses was in progress to
day. "Am I ashamed of the gospel of
Christ," was the specific subject
chosen by Dr. Hamilton for his
opening sermon. The progress of
Christianity, Dr. Hamilton asserted
is halted by church leaders who
do not exemplify the Christian
faith and belief in their daily lives,
because they are afraid of the gos
pel in its practical implications.
"Two things," he declared, "are
characteristic of all who worship
God, namely, a hunger for God
and a great fear that He might
come and in coming change our
way of living too drastically. It is
a terrible thing, this Christianity.
It cuts across our way of life and
wc are afraid of it. We want the
way of God but we want our own
way too and we seek less costly
ways of serving Him, through rit
ualism, social service, and church
