Dig Business Houses Have Employes Sing Half Hour Each
Day Before Starting Work
Christian Endeavorers are doing
excellent work in the new morning
sing movement. The Quiet Hour
department has promoted interests
in the cultivation of the devotional
life through a definite time given
each day to prayer, Bible reading
and meditation, and in addition to
that singing has been a great help
to the personal life.
At all the great conventions the
music and singing has been an im
portant feature on the program.
Many souls have been lifted to a
higher and nobler life through the
singing of hymns and helpful songs
at hospitals, jails, in other institu
tions and among tho many soldier
boys, at camps and at the front, on
the battle field.
Two years ago many services were
held for the boys prior to their going
to war, and they took many hymn
books with them. The books not
only con-tained hymns, but also por
tions of scripture which gave the
boys encouragement. Endeavorers
received many words of commenda
tion for tho interest shown in the
boys, especially in sending them
words of cheer, and also sending
them presents.
A Kansas City dry-goods store has i
started a "sing" for its employes
every morning, half an hour before
the business of the day begins. The
interesting thing about the experi
ment is that the workers come glad
ly. and en-joy themselves. A writer
has said: "It means a good deal to
us whether we start the day with
music or with a grouch. Perhaps
it would be a good thing if all busi
nesses that employ a large number
of men and women, organize sings
of this kind; and it might not be
the worst idea to organize into'
morning choirs, all the employes in
the offices of a business block. It
might make for friendliness and the
community spirit. What this sing
does for the workers, the Quiet Hour
can do for us, and more.
"If it pays to give an hour a day
to singing, it pays yet more to give
that time to Christ in the Quiet Hour.
Have we really ever tried it?"
