SUNDAY SERLION Will It not shortly occur to some that the answer to our present day query was made some two thousand yeara ago and that we have only been halted by war and worldly interests In our quest for the solution of all problems of our world along the lines of that di vine message? I do not mean simply that we must come to the observation of the ethics of Jesus ia all society from the lite of the home to the life or the nation. That would be a fine thing which we have never approached nearly enough to appreciate, but It la not enough. Jesus Christ not mere accep tance of a moral code but a per sonal acceptance and allegiance to Himself. We have forgotten that. Our churches stand empty by the thousand. Others turn to forms of social service which pre serve the shell without the meat. People forget that Jesas wss era- clfied. not to raise wages, but to save men. We shall find, one day. that when laborer and capitalist alike, when Socialist. Republican and Democrat, In sufficient quantity and with sufficient force, are per. sonally attached to the personality of Jesas. and when German.
