Church of Christ
The Meldrum series of sermon
lectures were closed last Sunday
evening with an appeal to renewed
spirituality, especially along the
lines of sympathy, humility and
mutual helpfulness. Dr. Meldrum's
subject was "The Attitude of the
Orient and the Occident Toward
Christ" he proved conclusively that
there is a crying desire of both the
East and West for Christ if He can
be freed from all creeds and doc
trines and his simple life and ex
ample be presented to the people.
Those who attended the series of lec
tures were unanimous in saying that
it was the best thing that has been
given in Athena or will likely be giv
en for many days to come. Next
Lord's Day we will resume our study
in the life of Christ The morning
subject, "The Parables of Christ." In
the evening we will discuss the prac
ticability of Christian Unity. All oth

time and place. Come in time for

teacher for you and will give you a
