Troubfe at The Christian Church Sun
The ushers had great difficulty in
finding seats for the laree audience
winch gathered to hear Evangelist
Ilaudsaker preach on of the
greatest sermens ever delivered in
Cottage Grove. The attendance
on Sunday was the largest ever
known in the history of Cottage
Sunday morning the Evangelist
preached an excellent sermon on
"God Our Refuge". At 3 p.m.
he ac'dressed the largest audience
of women ever assembled in this
city. His address was on "Mothers"
and was a masterpiece. In the
evening he spoke on '-Excuses"
and it is generally conceded that it
was tne best ever listened to here.
Monday night he spoke on "The
Opening of a Will", showing that
the New Testament went into force
on the croas where Christ sealed
the new Will with his death, but
this Will was not openel until 50
days later, on Pentecost, when
Peter having the keys to the King
dom opened that Will and dis
tributed the blessings of that King
dom to those who on that day be
came citizens. We therefere today
do not receive the inheritance ac
cording to the Old Testament but
the New. This was a very in
structive and helpful sermon. The
largest audience ever seen here at
tended church on Monday night had
the privilege of hearing this truth
concerning the two covenants.
From the giet number ot ijues
tiou3 which are being asked from
uight to night it is evident that the
city has neer bjen so stirred as at
this time. Three obeyed their Sa
viour in Christian baptism at the
close of this service.
The meeting bo far has been a
great success iu attendance, inter
est and conversions, 21 having al
ready stepped out for Christ and
Wednesday he speaks on tha
subject; "What to Do".
Thursday "The Unpardonable
Friday will be an all day meeting.
