THE DEDICATION SERVICES IN
GREEN RIDGE YESTERDAY.
The Handsome New Church Home of
the Green Ridge BaptlBts on Mon
sey Avenue Was Consecrated to the
Worship of God with Appropriate
Services Dedicatory Sermons
Preached by Rev. Dr. W. G. Part
ridge, of Cincinnati Description
of the New Building.
The members of the congregation of
the Green nidge Baptist church now
have a church home of which thev
inny well be proud. The handsome
new church building on Monsey ave
nue, between Green Ridge and Marlon
streets, was yesterday formally dedi
cated with appropriate services to the
worship of Almighty God.
The dedication services proper were
held In the morning, beginning ut 10.30
o'clock, In tho presence of a cons-rogation
which completely rilled tho
brlzht and cheerful Interior with Its
subdued color scheme. A great pro
fusion of palms, generously furnished
by Florist McCllntock, were banked In
front of the pulpit platform and gar
lands of smllax were twined about the
front of the spacious choir gallery.
The dedicatory sermon was preached
by Rev. Dr. Warren G. Partridge, of
Cincinnati, O., who found the themo
for a most eloquent dlscotitse in II
Cor.. vll:!t: "For they kept the feast
of the dedication of the altar seven
days." The prayer of consecration was
delivered by Rev. W. B. Grow, of Car
bondale, who is eighty-five years old,
but whoso steii Is clastic antl whose
voice Is as powerful as manya younger
In the afternoon there was a special
Sunday school session, attended by the
children of the Sunday school nnd a
largo number of the older members of
the congregation. Rev. Mr. Grow gave
a most Inspiring little talk, full of tho
spirit of tho Lord, and Rev. Dr. Rob
ert F. Y. Pierce, pastor of the Penn
avenue church, gave one of his famous
chalk talks, illustrating gospel truths
with cleverand lightning-like sketches.
The evening service was entirely In
charge of Rev. Dr. Partridge, who de
livered, with his characteristic power
and force, a sermon based on Mat
thew, xll:12: "How much Is a man
better than a sheep." He spoke, in
part, as follows:
"Pantheism regards man as Insignifi
cant; materialism regards him as a
part of nature and proclaims that ho
really belongs with the beasts. Among
many ancient notions, the Individual
was almost a nonenlty, but tho statei
was everything. The Individual was
sacrificed for the state.
"Plato and Aristotle advocated the
killing of weak childien and decrepit
old people by exposure, for the purpose
of ridding society and the state of a
useless burden. Christ, on the con
trary, taught that man Is a being of
infinite importance to God. It Is a
mystery to us why God estimates man
"He has the companionship of angels,
archangels, the cherubim and seraphim.
These beautiful and Intelligent heaven
ly beings are sinless. In their purity,
holiness and intelligence theyare never
disobedient to God. They always serve,
please and obey their heavenly father.
"God has also infinite sources of joy
In Himself and In His universe. Yet
Jesus brought a strange and wonder
ful truth to this world. Christ declared
that man was a being of Infinite value
to the Almighty. The Greeks and
Romans believed that their gods and
goddesses dwelt on Mt. Olympus and
enjoyed each other's society, taking
little Interest in human beings. In
their system it was necessary to pla
cate the anger of the gods with sac
rifices. VALUE OF 'MAN.
"Christ emphasized the inestimable
value of the Individual man. Redemp
tion also reveals tho worth of the In
dividual man. We would not let our
child risk Its life for a pet animal. God
would not permit His Son to suffer and
die for the beasts. If man Is simply a
brute he must perish like the animals.
God would not let His Son die upon the
cross for such a being. Calvary it
God's estimate of man's value.
"God also desires man's society for
eternity. Redeemed men aie to have
glorified bodies and will resemble the
"Christ also set a high value on man
as a personality. Wh- did Jesus
pieach the gospel to the poor? He did
not consider poverty a virtue, but pov
erty represented a man stripped of all
outward excellencies. We begin to be
Interested In a man when he has high
birth, social position, political influence
or great riches. 'A mere man Is a so
cial nobody.' The greatness of Jesus
appears by His ability to discover in
the naked personality of mere man, Ir
respective of wealth, birth, office or
"Christ also valued a man when de
void not only of possessions, but of
character. Christ loved the depraved
because He saw In them latent spirit
"The doctrine of Immortality springs
oit of tho dignity and worth of human
nature. The twentieth century church
must do more for humanity. The street
enrs blocked In this city Is a proof that'
New Year's day Is about to

GIVEN BY DR. GIFFIN IN ELM
He Does Not Claim That the Century
Just Closed Was the Greatest in the
World's History but Ho Does Be
lieve the Condition of the People
Who Inhabit the World Is Better
Now Than It Ever Has Been,
Wonders of This Century Which
Mark It from All Its Predecessors.
Rev. Dr. C. M. ClIITin spoke on topics
appropriate to the day In the Elm
Park church yesterday. In tho morn
ing, the balcony wns filled with street
car employes. In the evening the sub
ject of his dlscurse was "A Review of
the Century." In the beginning he an
nounced a series of Sunduy evening
lectures, "The New Christ for tho
New Century," "Tho New Church for
the New Century," "The New Citizen
for tho New Century," "The New
Commandment for tho New Century."
He spoke In tho evening fiom tho
central thought of tho hundred bnslns
ot gold In the temple. These vessels
were the most precious conceivable,
he said, and were used In tho sanc
tiiray. Them arc people" who call time
nothing. Time Is something. It Is the
magnificent basin In which the Father
stoted our mercies and He has put
great value on time.
Our world, this republic, has boon
well named ns simple "Opportunity."
The man who lives In the learning ot
China loses his power to take Inter
est In the things of today. This Is
Impossible In America where If we
have any characteristic It Is that of
push. We have few men like Lot's
Collectively these basins have
brought great gifts to the world. Dur
ing this period this planet hns grown
to be a very pleasant place to live In.
'Leave out of It tho human actor and
what would It be? A kingdom with
out a king.
MADE A CONTRAST.
The speaker contrasted the begin
ning of tho century with the present.
Then Virginia contained one-fifth of
the population of the United States.
Those free citizens of the new repub
lic formed a loose fringe along the
coast. Men worked for 25 cents a day
and with such long hours that they
had scarcely time to restl and such
faro that even if very healthy no man
working in any position in this city
would eat it with at grumbling.
There was not a circulating library;
only two caches carried people be
tween Boston and Washington.
In the American metropolis could b-
seen the pillory nnd both men and
women were whipped at a common
post. They had a reverence for minis
ters, however. Sometimes I've
thought It would be good to have such
times. No matter bow dull, dry and
disorderly the sermon might be. any
one who said a word against It was
It is said that but thirteen great in
ventions have been recorded in the
century, yet it is also said that only
seven of equal rank were numbered
in ail the other centuries, but I know
that never was the human brain so
active, never did the sun and sea and
earth give such obeisance to man.
ONE MAN'S POWER.
Consider what one man can do now.
What could we have done with our
magnificent harvests if we had not tho
reapers and machinery which are pro
ducts of human intellect, and we have
not only multiplied human activities,
but we have lessened the miseries of
AVe have ridden on steam cars
so long that we forget what It was to
not have them,' yet a quarter of the
century had gone by before ever the
puff of a locomotive wns known. Twen-tj--nine
years had passed before you
could get a likeness of yourself.
T do not say the nineteenth century
produced all the greatness. Probably
the four greatest writers will be con
ceded, as Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe,
Homer, and philosophers, Bacon, Kant,
Plato and Aristotle, but we had Grant,
Sherman, Lee, Von Moltke. AVe had
Lincoln and Bismarck, Scott, Dickens,
Thackoraj, Hawthorne and Gaorge
Eliot, and we had Beecher, Spurgeon
and Matthew Simpson, a trio of pulpit
orators such as tho world has never
The tendency of legislation has been
toward better things. Blackstono and
William Pitt would be novices today
in our courts. AVe say to men: "You
may not feel like brothers, but you
must act like brothers." AVe are tend
ing toward altruism.
He leferred to the darker side of the
picture out of which great good hns
come and concluded with tho tribute
to united missionary elfort, which Is
the crown of the century.
