Noted C. E. Leader Says
Meetings Are Helpful;
Endeavor Notes
During the past few months many
leaders of religious organizations
have questioned the advisability of
holding large conventions and ral
lies in war time. The Rev. F. E.
Clark, D. D., of Boston, gives a reply
to the question. Ho says: "Like
everything else, our conventions and
union rallies are affected by the
world war. New problems, new
questions of duty have arisen. Many
of our leaders have gone to the front.
Shall we have our conventions and
rallies as formerly? Most decidedly,
I think we should.
To be sure, our great international
convention, due in the year when
our country entered the war, was
postponed, but that was because it
involved such long distance travel
when the roads were peculiarly con
gested. A convention that draws its
delegates from Maine to California,
and from Manitoba to Texas, is very
different from a state or county con
vention or a local union meeting.
By all means keep up these gath
erings. They were never so much
needed as now. Religion, patriotism,
personal devotion to every good cause
call for such meetings as never be
fore in the history of Christian En
deavor. No other cause brings the
young people of all denominations
together as does Christian Endeav
or, and there never was a year of
all the 1913 years of the Christian
era when union work and union
prayer and a united inspiration were
so necessary as now. Moreover, we
must look forward to the future.
Please God. the war will not last
forever. Someday the boys will
come marching home, and it would
be sad indeed if they found the
union disorganized, the meetings
suspended, and our united work at
a low ebb.
"Brothers, you who like myself,
must do our patriotic work at home;
sisters, you who must come to the
front for the first time and take the
place of absent ones; intermediates
and juniors and all young people, wo
have now one of our greatest op
portunities. While the war lasts,
God calls us as never before In our
united capacity as Endeavorers, to
show our patriotism, and to keep
the live coals burning bright on the
altars of devotion.
"Our soldier comrades will win at
the front. We must win in the tight
behind the trenches, and there is
no greater help to this victory for
God and the right, for home and
native land, than live conventions
and well-planned, well-attended ral
lies. You cannot better serve the
Master than putting brains and
heart into such meetings."
George E. Troup is one of the pop
, ular Endeavor leaders of the West

Street United Brethren Christian
Endeavor society and also knows
how to lead a large chorus.

Something Doing in Religious Circles
Churches and kindred religious or
ganizations are doing their share in
keeping up the spiritual and social
life among their members. Some
things were Been and heard and read
by a popular minister recently. The
Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, pastor of
the Congregational Church, Topeka,
Kan., says n his church calendar:
A cheerful invalid, although few
of his lifelong friends have been in
to see him since he went to the hos
pital several weeks ago. Don't send
him a flower. Take it yourself.
One man in a street car asked an
other "When are you coming out to
see me?" "Oh, I don't know. I don't
have time to see any one." "If I
owed you a dollar you would send
me a statement first of the month,
wouldn't you?" "I suppose I should."
These men are old friends. I know
they are, for I know them, and I
sat behind them. Wonder how long
it is since either wrote the other a
letter of friendship or rung his door
"Death is a great adventure, but
none need go unconvinced that
there is an issue to it. The man of
faith may face it as Columbus faced
his first voyage from the shores of
Spain. What lies across the sea, he
cannot tell; but his insight into the
clear meanings of present facts may
persuade him beyond doubt that the
sea has another shore." (From "As
surance of Immortality," by Fosdlck.
A good book for all who view the
empty chair and wonder).
I saw a man on' Monday, a busi
nessman, making money with all his
might. Saturday he was still at it.
That man is here to-day, perhaps.
If he works as hard for the Lord as
he worked all last week for him
self, he will be a tired man to-night.
I read about a man who fell going
up hill. But the story said he didn't
fall nor hit so hard as another
man who fell going the other way.
Saw the workmen in our church
handling big timbers carefully so as
not to mar the furniture. I like to
believe that the majority of work
ers, both physical and mental, tlnd
much pleasure in doing their work
right, aside from the wages they get
for doing it.
Have you seen a good many peo
ple bearing the burdens of life
bravely and quietly. They are begin
ning to understand there are
"others." Your lad is not the only
one. You are touching elbows with a
world grief. Misery does not "love
company," but rightly borne it learns
how to share the load with others.
Selfish sorrow is as selfish as selfish
