The International Sunday School l.csson For January I Is "I'ctor
Bronchos at IV'lltccost" —Acts 2:11, 22-11, 32-12
Religiously, there is something l
new or? the horizon for Niheteen
Twenty. Practically all of the tie
nominations of the United States
and Canada have united in a con
certed enterprise, more comprehen
sive and radical than anything they
have heretofore undertaken, called
the Itrterchurch World Movement.
It enters the new year with an au- j
daeious program, a huge organize-;
lion and practically unlimited
money. All Christians should wish
it well; some even dare hope that it!
may be tho solution for the present!
problem of social crisis and re- j
ligious decadence.
At the beginning of a momentous ;
year, as we take up a course of Surr-j
day school studies that face thej
fundamentals of faith, it is well
deal frankly with ourselves and with !
conditions. Let us admit freely the j
temptation to do spiritual work by j
material methods. And, to prevent ,
later disillusionment, let us, also, in j
perfect candor remind ourselves that I
the Church is not going to meet sue- 1
cessfully the present emergency in;
the world by means of money or
machinery or methods of modernity. I
The Church may take on all tlioi
business resourcefulness .of thej
Standard Oil Company, all the pub-j
licity devlc.es of the circus, all the!
many-sided adaptability of a polit-!
ical party and all the propaganda!
ingenuity of the German govern-,
merit, and still leave her great task ;
fairly untouched. Scientific effieien-I
ey on the part of the Church is not j
enough to save our distraught times. •
However useful a subordinate place!
all these modern appliances may fill. '
the truth needs to lie driven straight i
home that they are merely inci- |
dental. Nothing that worldly wis
dom can devise is able to deliver ourf
enmeshed and imperiled world.

"Accept no substitutes." A mo- !

In a Polyglot World
Within five years we have moved I
into a new, great world, embracing j
ail races aivd countless strange i
tongues. We know ourselves cos- |
mopolites and responsible for the ;
■ settling of questions undreamed of ■
a short time ago. At no previous j
j study of the Pentecost story have.
we so clearly understood the reality l
j of the catalog of nationalities who j
heard I'eter's sermon; he might al- j
most have been preaching at the :
I Paris Peace Conference, or on thej
| Fast Side of New York. As we i
think of it all BOW, we understand j
anew that its meaning must apply j
not only to I.ttke's list, ranging I
from Partitions to Arabians, but also j
to vast groups of mankind unknown i
in i'eter's time. The Message of |
Pentecost to-day has a wider scope
than the New Testament world.
One of our modern poets, Richard
Burton, has voiced the universality
of the cull of Christ;
"It is said the Bedouins cry, on the
Syrian Irlls, a clear
I Loud summons to war, and the
tribes far distant hearken and
So wondrous rare is the air, so crys

As Pentecost pictured, the Word j
is to all the world. Since the arm is- j
j tice, many Americans have sunk into
a new sense of selfish provincialism
and isolation. They are a sort of
western Sinn Feiners, for "them
selves alone." But it cannot be
dorce. Even if the commingled blood
shed in France did not cement us;
indissolubly to the whole world, the!
blood shed on Calvary would do so. j
' We cannot accept the ties of Christ
1 without being tied to all his friends.
The Mcdes and Mesopotamians (at
present, afresh, peoples in a crisis)
have the same need for the Pente
cost tidings as the Canadians and
A Great Sermon
Better than a theological semi
nary was it for Peter, the fisherman,
to have been keeping company with
Jesus, the carpenter. There are
signs that the churches are revising
their sense of values in training for
, the ministry; marry an anointed
i young man is removed far from his
I fellows and emasculated and devital-
I ized by modern theological curricu
! la. Reeking with reality, himself a
pardoned penitent. Peter s{ood up
amid a mixed and critical congre
i gation and poured hot from his
; heart his deepest convictions,
1 which were the life-transforming
Gospel of Christ. Here are the por
tions of his sermon: assigned for to
day's study, as translated by Wey
■ mouth:
"Peter, however, together with
the Eleven, stood up and ad
dressed them in a loud voice.
" 'Men of Judea, and all you
iniiabitants of Jerusalem,' he
said, 'be in no uncertainty about
this matter but pay attention to
! what I say.' * •
" 'Listen, Israelites, to what I
say. Jesus, the Nazarene, a man
accredited to you from God by
miracles and marvels ami signs
which God did among you
through Him, as you yourselves
know Him delivered up
through God's settled purpose
i and forcknowldege—you by the
hands of Gentiles have nailed to
a cross and have put to death.
But God has raised Him to life,
having terminated the throes ot
death, for in fact it was not pos
sible for Him to be held fast by \,
death.' * * *
"This Jesus. God has raised to
life—a fact to which all of us
j testify.
" 'Being therefore lifted high
by the mighty hand of God,
He has received from the
Father the promised Holy Spirit
and lias poured out this which
j you see and hear. • •
" 'Therefore let the whole
House of Israel know beyond all
doubt that God has made Him
both Eord ami Christ—this
Jesus whom you crucified.'
"Stung to the heart by these
words, they said to Peter and
the rest of the Apostles;
" 'Brethren, what are we to
" 'Repent,' replied Peter, 'and
be baptized, every one of you, in
| the name of Jesus Christ, with
a view to the remission of your
sins, and you shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit. For, to
you belongs the promise, and to
your children, and to all who
are far off, whoever the Lord
our God may call.'
"And with many more appeals
lie solemnly warned ami en
treated them, saying:
" Escape from this crooked
gene ration.'
"Those, therefore, who ,loy
fully welcomed his Message
were baptised, and on that day
about li.uoa persons were added !
to them, and they were con- I
