Casey of Minter. Church of the Nazarene Probation After Death is the subject of the Lesson-Sermon which will be read in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, April 23, 1944. The Golden Text is: The last enemy that shall be destroyed ii death. (1st Corinthians 15: 26) Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon are the following from the Bible: If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on thing on the earth.

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. And have put on the new man, which is re ndwed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: (Colossians 3: 1, 2, 4, 10) The Lesson-Sermon includes also the following passages from pages 325 and 76 of the Christian Science Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary, Baker Eddy: When spiritual being is understood in alL its perfection, continuity, and might, then shall man be found in Gods image. Death can never hasten this state of existence, for death must be overcome, not submitted to, before immortality appears. The St. Ill class is planning to give its play An Old Fashioned Mother.

the 28th of April at night. Church St. Methodist 1820 Alabama Avenue Rev. W. R.

Platt, Pastor 1818 Ala. Ave. Phone 1066 Text: Acts 14: 8-20 BY WILIJAM 4HLROY, D. D. Paul, I have said, was a born i propagandist; he was likewise a born traveler.

And the two have often gone together. The man who has convictions that he must express to others is restless until he has told his message to as many people as possible. Paul had a supremely great message. It centered in his own experiences, in what the Gospel of Jesus Christ had done for him in arresting him in his course of intolerance and persecution, and inmaking him a man of love. He saw, too, what it could do for others, and deep in his philosophy and experience was the conviction that the Gospel could make of any man (see II Cor-.

5tW) a new creature. At Antioch. where the disciples were first called "Christians, were a group of believers of similar mind and spirit. They took seriously the Masters last commission to go Into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature, and they appointed Paul and Barnabas to go forth and fulfil tharf command. Two more willing messengers could not have been found.

Paul has outdistanced all of the early disciples as a pioneer builder and Christian missionary; but no one has outdistanced Barabas in quality of faith and character and in pure zeal. Apparently a man of substance, he had given it all to the Christian cause. It was unfortunate that later a disagreement arose between these good men, over th4 question whether John Mark, the nephew of Barnabas and the author of our Gospel by Mark should accompany them on a second jouirney. Paul thought that John Mark, who had been with them on the first journey, had deserted them without sufficient reason. Here, however, on Pauls first missionary journey these two great Christians, Paul and Barnabas, are together.

Jheir mission has spectacular aspects, for when Paul has performed a miracle of healing the pagan people are convinced that the gods have come down among them, and they want to worship the missionaries, Barnabas as Jupiter anu Paul as Mercurius. The occasion gave Paul the opportunity for plain words concerning the nature of God, and the human side of true religion. But the missionaries had to encounter danger and opposition, especially when foes of the Christian way arrived from Antioch and so perverted the minds of the people that they stoned Raul and left him for dead. Two things I should like to say. First, concerning Paul as a missionary, I would urge the value of following the narrative with a map of Pauls journeys, such as is found in many Bibles.

Second, a word concerning modern missionaries. They have come in for much criticism, and the scornful have had their fling at the missionaries expense. Buf if you have a son fighting in the Pacific, thank God for the missionaries who went to these danger spots a century or a half-century ago. The natives have been friendly to our troops. How much more terrible the situation would have been If the natives had preferred the Japanese.
