CENTRAL TRUTH OF TOMORROW'S LESSON
(April 2J, JOIS International Scries I Samuel, xvlt, l-S.)
THE TRIUMPH OF TRUTH
By GEORGE G. DOWEY
"David and Goliath" is one of the beat-knoicn hero stories of the Bible.
It details are fascinating; how David, the strlpplina. una sent to the camp
to fnqulro about his big soldier-brothers; how he found the two opposing
. I, ..,.! ....1. i.nllfnn n tilt, ft tt
unmvs on opposite inns, tutn imnwa !" .... -strike;
how the conflict then centred upon two chosen
combatants; the daily challenge of Oollath; the fear pos
sessing Israel; the courage of David in accepting the
giant's challenge, and his brother's rebuke; his appear
ance before King Saul and rejecting Saul's armor. Then
the selecting of flee stones for the sling and David meet
ing the giant jingle-handed. The combat was short;
one stone from the shepherd's sling felled the Philistine
champion and his army was routed.
iP m The central truth has special typical significance
Am&rfr, JM today. Head the last clause of verse 43, "The Philistine
Ptffiiis $Bt cursed David by Ms gods"; then the words of David in
S . fl ver3 -5 "l como t0 thee '" the name 0 the Lord f
B ' I MM hosts, the Ood of Vie armies of Israel, whom thou has
B JH defied"; and in verse 7, "Th battle is the Lord's." In
IS-sB! all this wo find more than a yaffle of human armies; it
Uo. G DOWEY teas a conflict of principles, of riant ana of wrunu, u,
trvth and of falsehood. The armies representing these principles had met
ond clashed often, but the issue was finally decided by the two individual
cAomploiu. Goliath represented the gods of evil and falsehood; David came
the name of the God of Truth, and Truth was triumphant.
The conflict of these same principles is waging today. The Divine
Principle of right and truth against the world principle of evil and error,
WW church and the world have been in constant clash; first one, then
' other, seems to triumph. If the Bible be true, all these battles will head
"P in a combat between two individual champions, Christ and Satan, and
' great issue of the universe will ultimately be decided when the two
cAfe meet Christ is Truth, of whom. David was a type, and Truth will

Hunt by the free-will ofTcringa of a
unltcil parish in memory of Hh faithful
Notlct, It Is "St. Murk's Church," not
"St. Mark's Protestant Episcopal Church."
The enterprising rector plnces emphasis
upon n church that serves the community,
lather than upon denominational badges.
The church is a monument to 20 yen-s of
IruWallgablo work by Mr. Harding. H's
aim has been, as be expresses It, to
"Americanize the episcopal Church." An
example of rhls is to be found In tbe seven
handsome brass lamps In the chancel.
Thv were made In Prnnkford by St.
Mark's pailshloners. Kvery bit of ecclesi
astical embroldcr.v wns made by young
women of the parish. People said the mill
girls could not do such work. "No, but
they can be taught," Mr. Hnidlng replied.
St. Murk's parish dates back to 132.
when a Sunday aclroul was organized. For
a ear or more they worshiped Irr a hall
over a volunteer lire company's hosehouse.
as did moat young churches nt thnt
period A church wns built In the NOs.
Tho Rov. linnlel S. Miller was pastor for
JS years. The Rev. Mr. Rooth and tiro
Rev. Mr. Avery" succeeded him. Then
came the Rev. Mr. Harding.
