"Wherefore, gird up the loins of
your mind." 1st Peter 1-13.
Columbus thought, and a new
continent emerged into the horizon
of the world's civilization.
Robert Fulton thought, and a net
work of steamboats covered the
great waterways of the world.
Benjamin Franklin thought, and
the lightning was harnessed to
light our cities and bring a new day
in power use, and to run railways.
Cyrus Field thought, and cable
communication was established on
the floor of the ocean between all
the nations of the earth.
Carlyle wrote, "In every epoch of
the world, the greatest event, par
ent of all others: is it not the ar
rival of a thinker in the world?"
And yet the arival of a thinker is
not always welcomed by the world,
The United States Congress was
greatly annoyed by Cyrus Field.
Comfortable and complacent peo
ple do not usually like to be dis
turbed by a thinker. Emerson
must have had this sort of people
in mind when he said: "Beware
when the great GOD lets loose a
thinker on this planet."
The unthinking are apt to regard
the thinker as a tragedy. BUT THE
REAL TRAGEDY OF THE
WORLD IS THAT THERE ARE
SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE
TOO INDIFFERENT OR TOO
LAZY TO THINK!
What the world needs this hour
is more thinking on the right
sort of things and along the right
lines. And there is one inevitable
way for us to accomplish the turn
ing of our thoughts into right chan
nels: "Wherefore gird up the loins
of your mind." Let us get to read
ing and studying (handling), the
Word of God, which is the Sword of
the Spirit, and soon we will find
ourselves reading even in secular
literature along right lines and
THINKING ALONG RIGHT
MINDS! Try this simple, sure
method of improving our thinking.
Do you have a Church home? If
not, we very cordially invite you to
come and worship with us. Attend
o.ur Bible School and services of
worship and test the welcome of
this friendly Church. For the com
