Sequel to Recent Sermon to
"Makinjc the Most of One's Mind" Is
Topic at the First Presbyter-inn
0WTNG to the .unusual Interest man
ifested In the sermon of last Sun
day night at the First Presbyterian
Church, corner Twelfth and Aider
streets, on the subject, "The Moral
Duty to Be Intelligent," Dr. Boyd has
decided to preach a sequel to this at
7:30 tonight on "Making the Most of
At 9 o'clock an after-meeting will be
held in the chapel at which Dr. Boyd
will be the host. An opportunity will
be given here to discuss the thoughts
of the sermon and to ask the pastor
such questions as may arise during the
evening's address. More than 150 re
mained for the after-meeting last Sun
Dr. Boyd will also be in hia pulpit
this morning, preaching the regular
sermon at 10:30 o'clock. He also will
tell one of his popular story sermons
for the children, which always contain
truth which can be profitably taken
by the adult mind also. Last Sun-day
48 new members were received Into
the membership of the First Presbyte
rian Church, and three children were
presented by their parents at the altar
to receive the ordinance of baptism.
One of the most pretentious move
ments which has ever been planned by
this church was launched last Monday
night, when the Monday Evening Club
was Inaugurated. Four regular classes
have been Instituted, running each
Monday night for the next three
months, from 7:45 until 9 P. M. The
courses are as follows: "Shakespeare,"
under A. B. Thaxter; "Present Day
Literature," under Mrs. Helen Ekin
Etarrett; "Current Events," under
Estes Snedecof; "Historic Roots of the

Pastor of Waverly Heights Cortgrejjational Church Speaks on Text: "The Son of Man Came Not to Be Ministered Unto but to Minister, and to Give His Life a Ransom for Many."
BY REV. A. C. MOSES.
Pastor "Waverly Heights Congregational
The Son of Man came to give his Ufa a
ransom for many. x
Text, Matt. xx:28. "The Son of Man came
not to he ministered unto: but to minister,
and to give his llze a ransom for many."
THIS text takes us to Golgotha. This
is the way God deals with the prob
lem of sin. Christ has bought" us for
God. Saints on earth may unite in the
new song of the saints in heaven, say
ing. "Thou wast slain and hast re
deemed us to God
by thy b 1 o o d."
(Rev. v:9.) Calvary
Is the normal life of
God. For God Is
love. He always
was wimi iio
when Jesus died.
Rev.-F. B. Meyer
says, "Once in Scot-
land I was walking !
over the hills and
came to a great
lake. I could not
tell whether it was
fresh water or salt
until I went down
to the margin and
Hev. A. V. Blosea.
put my linger into the water and
then to my Hps. "Ah! I said, 'That is
salt. This is not a mountain lake, but
an Inlet from the ocean.' Then as 1
looked across that bpdy of water I saw
a riffle coming. I said to myself, 'Yes,
tflat is Just it. This is an inlet from
the Atlantic and yonder is the pulse
and throb of the great ocean outside,
stirring this Inland stillness.'
So as we pass across the tracks of
time and come, on Calvary we may
say: It was a distinct act that put away
ein, but it is also a drop from the very
heart of the eternal, and the tide of
Borrow that passed over the heart of
Great War," under James F. Ewing. At
9:15 P. M. all classes unite for-an hour
with Dr. Boyd in the study of capitals
of the great war. Illustrated With "lan
tern slides. Next Monday night a
moving-picture exhibition showing the
lumber, mills and a number of Port
land industries, including the cracker
factory and , the gas company -plant,
will be substituted Instead of Dr.
Boyd's lecture. The entire idea of the
Monday Evening Club is educational;
Already 227 persons have registered
for the various courses. There' is no
fee connected with the courses, but
serious study and regular attendance
are expected of" those who enter.
Registration is still open, and full par
ticulars can be obtained by calling
the church office. Main 2336.
Room E of the Presbyterian church
house, 454 Alder street, is open every
Sunday from 4 to' 7:30 o'clock for the
convenience and enjoyment of young
people who desire a pleasant, warm
room in which to spend the afternoon.
Mrs. A. L. Ford Warren is. In charge of
the " vesper class, and a programme
of interest and merit Is prepared each
week. Light refreshments are served
at 6 o'clock, so that all young people
who desire may remain for Christian
Endeavor and evening service without
the necessity of going jout somewhere
for lunch. This class "is proving popu
lar and beneficial,- and is one of the
best agencies of the church for the
promotion of good fellowship and ac
quaintances among the young people of
the congregation, btrangers ana new
comers in the city will find a warm
welcome. ' "
Endeavorers Plan Big Mis
Multnomah TJnlon to Take Up Class
Work This Month Under Charge
of Miss Ellanore Ewing.
THE missionary department of the
Multnomah County Christian En
deavor Union Is making efficient plans
for a big missionary drive ' for the
month of January. " Miss Ellanore
Ewing, superintendent of the depart
ment, has taken up her work and It
is her desire to organize a missionary
study class Jn every society In Mult
nomah Union; taking 'up the study of
missions and their' work, either as a
separate class or In conjunction with
the regular Sunday evening prayer
meetings of the societies.
A normal study class will begin Jan
uary 30 for the training of leaders and
teachers of the mission study classes
in the societies. There will be but one
central normal study class in the
county, and all desiring to prepare
themselves In order to teach a study
class are Invited to attend the normal
class. The place where this normal
class will be held will be announced
This class will end February 16, 1917,
at which time the regular mission study
classes in the various societies will be
organized .throughout the county and
leaders furnished by the normal- class,
if desired by the societies. These classes
will continue as long as the Individual
society desires. A list of good mis
sionary textbooks will be compiled by
the missionary department from which
the various societies will be' privileged
The mission subject is a very Inter
esting topic In the church and Endeacor
world and the cabinet members are
quite sure the young people will find
it a very Interesting subject to study
and read up on. Some societies through
out the county have already conducted
mission study classes and have found
them to be both interesting and edu
cational. David M. Jack. Multnomah County
Christian Endeavor Union president, is
working with the missionary depart
ment in their endeavors and giving
them many practical helps in the work.
Mrs. Florence Crawford will give a
series of three-. lectures' on self-Unfold

While I Stray," by . Marsten. There
also will be other music Mrs. Craw

morning in "The Comforter" headquar

Tonight Rev. G. E. Lewis, pastor of
Highland Congregational Church, will
close his series of lectures on the sub
ject, "Is the World Getting Better?"
At the close of the service five Judges,
chosen from the" community and not
directly connected with the church,
will decide, after weighing the matter
presented by the minister, if the old
world is going forward or backward,
Piedmont Men's Community Club en
Joyed a delightful meeting and dinner
on Tuesday night. The dinner-' was
cooked and served by men of the club.
The public school situation was in
terestingly presented by Professor
Whitney, of the city schools, and Pro
fessor Griffith, of Reed College. Sev
eral musical selections were rendered.
Today at 11 o'clock Dr. Hutchison
Jesus is a tidal wave out of the re
deeming heart of God which must al
ways feel so until this poor world Is
Christ's Humility Shows.
In his dally life he took upon him
self the form of a servant. He washed
the disciples' feet. We find him min
istering to men's necessities, serving
the world at every point of its need.
He carries its burdens, ministers to its
sicknesses, heals its diseases. He, fed
the hungry, unstopped the ears of th
deaf, opened the eyes of the blind,
cleansed lepers. This was a splendid
ministry of life, bt the work of Christ
was supremely spiritual. His great
work was to save men from their sins.
"The son of man came to seek and to
save that which was lost." He woes
and wins men to true and noble spirit
ual life by his redeeming death on the
cross. His life and death were in per
fect harmony with each other. Living
be served mankind. Dying he saved
them. He died a vicarious, propitiatory,
substitutionary, sacrificial death. He
died for us. He who was co-equal with
the father, son of God and son of man,
he in whom dwelt all the fullness of
the Godhead bodily, gave himself, a
great sacrifice, for our redemption.
"Christ suffered for us who did no
sin, who his own self bore our sins, in
his own body on the tree; that we,' be
ing dead to sin. should live unto
righteousness, by whose stripes ye are
healed." He became sin for us. Re
peatedly does the Bible affirm that
God the father accepts the obedience
and suffering of his son as an atone
ment for the sins, of the world. Heed
no other word. Listen to no other

and vain deceit, after the tradition of
men, after the rudiments of - the world,
and not after Christ." Col. 11:8.) Keep
close to the cross. A noted preacher
says. "We hear much' talk of the need
of a new revival. The revival that is
to be craved is a. revival of the' old
love. We need not more scholastics in
our pulpits, nor more advanced think
ers; but more men all "aglow with the
constraining love -of Christ." - '
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus
our Lord! Never man spake like this
man. Never man suffered like this
man. Never man lived like this man.
Never man died like this man. Never
man arose like this man. Never man
ascended to heaven and wilt return to
earth like this man.- Nature sang at
his birth and sobbed when he ' died.
The heavens, glowed with heavenly
beauty the night he came; and" were
overspread with darkness the afternoon
he gave himself a ransom for 'many.
When he crowned his ministry of life
by the ministry of death,' many of the
dead arose. When he arose, the. grave
was vanquished and all graves opened
forevermore. '- -
Love Alone Co nq Tiers.
In freely giving himself, Jesus was
actuated by love. Paradoxical as the
statement may seem, he did not need
to come, yet he bad to come. God is
love. Love always goes out after the
lost. "Herein is love, not that we
loved God, but that he loved us and
sent his son to be a propitiation for
our sins." Propitiation means an
"atoning sacrifice." Therefore, the last
clause might well read, "Sent his son
to be an atoning sacrifice for our sins."
In the atoning blood is the union of
law and love. Love Is the greatest
conqueror In the world.- Uplifted, it
draws all men unto itself. Crucified,
it refuses to-die. Buried-it rises again
and floods the world yrita the glory

of an Immortal hope. It continues to
be the greatest thing- in the world. -A
Southern -woman once-said, "Your
Northern troops whipped -us.: but they
did not conquer us. When -the yellow
fever- devastated' Memphis -and - the
dread dead cart went through the
streets and we heard the awful cry.
'Bring out your -dead,' then, when in
our - despair the telegrams came from
the cities of the North, from New York
and Chicago. Cincinnati and others, of
fering us aid, then our hearts melted.
Then the fierce bitterness passed away;
then we were indeed conquered."
Christ did not" die to soften God's
heart. His atoning death was to open
the sluiceways by which the pent-up
love of God flushes all the channels
of our lives. His love manifests a lov
ing God. When he poured out his soul
unto death on the cross, he, by "his
vicarious death," proclaimed to every
sln-blinded' soul that God so loved-the
world. - -
O dearly, dearly has He loved
And we must' love Him, too;
And trust in Us redeeming blood.
And try His works to do. .
Ancient Tale Recited.
Jesus identified himself with men.
"The word was made flesh and dwelt
among us"; and died among us. It is
an Eastern story which tells of a dying
ruler who sent a message to his peo
ple, announcing that his son would suc
ceed him on the throne and asking on
his behalf their loyal allegiance. This
they gladly gave, for they found that
the rule of the new king was benefi
cent and gracious. All the influences
that streamed forth from the royal
palace worked for the good of the peo
ple. All marveled at the king's knowl
edge of their condition and needs and
wondered ' how it was that he under
stood 'them so well.
Jl deep love for the new king move.4
next Sunday evening. The morning
theme will be equally practical "The
Secret of a Successful Life." The main
fact of the sermon will be to show that
the popular conception of success is in
correct and altogether too limited, and
we may. so adjust our lives .that our
success will be one of the most certain
things In the world.
New accessions In the church and
Bible school indicate the growth and
interest in this work, while all the
church organizations are actively at
work assisting local charities where
possible and holding their regular
monthly meetings in the church parlors

it was radiant; he looked at the robe;
it was gorgeous; but when he looked
at the hands he saw no marks of the

We must minister to others. Wo
must catch his spirit. It is the spirit
of a servant. The motive must be love.
His love enkindles ours. Our great
purpose, as was his, mut be to help
men out of their sins. When men ask
us for bread we must not give them
a stone. The external need must be
satisfied. We must heal the broken
hearted. We must be living epistles
read and known of all men. We are
Christ's servants in whom he lives.
Our highest mission is to serve.
Useless, indeed, are Ideals and In
spirations unless there Is service. In
this especially the church must not
fail to follow the example of her divine
Lord. We must remember that today
Christ serves ' humanity through us.
Our feet carry the gospel of peace; our
hands should be full of blessing for the
needy; our eyes should be full of tears
as we comfort the sorrowful and save
the lost. We must move among men
like ministering angels, sent from
heaven to cheer the world's sadness
and "to brighten its gloom. The church
which the pommunity crowns is the
one that helps" It bear tta crosses.
