ly "I hnve nut yet been able to satisfy I
myself, cither, in obeying my promise,
tat I have nt last decided on niyconrse j
in order to follow it. I shall bf obliged
to resign from Nazareth Avenue
"I knew yon would." replied the I
ishnp quietly, "and I came in this ,
evening to say that I shall be obliged
to do the same with my charge."
Dr. Bmea tnrnexl nnd walked up to
his friend. Thiy were both laboring
under repressed excitement.
"Is it necessary iu your case?" asked
"Ted, Let me state my reasons.
Probably they are the same as yours.
Iu fact, I am sure they are. The
Mlhop panseil a moment, then went on I
with inerrusiug feeling:
Unlvin, yon Know now many years i
I have been doing the work of my posi- j
tion, ami you know something of the j
responsibility and the care of it. I do ,

but I have certainly led what the poor
and desperate of this sinful city would
call a very comfortable yes, a very
luxurious, life. I havo a beautiful
house to live in, the most expensive
food, clothing and physical pleasures. 1
have been ablo to go abroad at least a
dozen times and have enjoyed for years
the beautiful companionship of art nnd
letters nnd music nnd nil the rest of the
very best. I hnve never known what'it
meant to be without money or its
equivalent, and I have been unable to
silence the question of late, 'What have
I suffered for tho sake of Christ V Paul
was told what great things he must
goffer for the sake of his Lord. Max
well's position at Raymond is well tak
en when ho insists that to walk in the
steps of Christ means to suffer. Where
has my suffering come in T The petty
trials and annoyances of my clerical life
are not worth mentioning us sorrows or
suffering. Compared, with Panl or any
of the Christian martyrs or early disci
ples, I have lived a luxurious, sinful
life, full of ease and pleasure. I cannot
endure this any longer. I have that
within me which of late rises in over
whelming condemnation of snch a fol
lowing of Jesus, I have not been walk
ing in his steps. Under the present sys
tem of church and social life I see no
escape from this condemnation except
to give the rest of my life personally to
the actual physical and sonl needs of
the wretched people in the worst part
S of this city."
Tim v,iuirm hnA riflpn now nnd walked
over to the window. The street in front
of the house was as light as dny, and
he looked oat at the crowds passing,
then turned, and, with a passionate ut
terance that showed how deep the vol
canic fire in him bnrned, he exclaimed:
"Calvin, this is a terrible city in
which we live. Its misery, its sin, its
selfishness, appall my heart, and I have
struggled for years with the sickening
dread of the time when I should bo
forced to leave the pleasant luxury of
my official position to put my lifo into
contact with the modern paganism of
this century. The awful condition of
the girls in the great department stores,
the brutal selfishness of the insolent so-
V) dety, fashion and wealth that ignores
" Jf all the sorrows of the city, the fearful
curse of the drink and gambling hell,
the wail of the nnemployed, the hatred
of the church by countless men who see
in the church only great piles of costly
stone and upholstered furniture and the
minister as a luxurious idler, all the
vast tumult of this vast torrent of hu
manity with its false and its true ideas,
its exaggeration of evils in the church
and its bitterness and shame that are
the result of many complex causes all
this as a total fact, in its contrast with
the easy, comfortable life I have lived,
fills me more and more with a sense of
mingled terror and self accusation. I
have heard the words of Jesus many
times lately, 'Inasmuch as ye did it not
unto one of these least, my brethren,
ye did it not to me. ' And when have I
personally visited the prisoner or the
desperate or the sinful in any way that
has actually caused me suffering T
Rather I have followed the conven
tional, soft habits of my position and
have lived In the society of the rich,
refined, aristocratic members of my con
gregations. Where has the suffering
come in? What have I suffered for
Jesus' sake! Do yon know, Calvin"
the bishop turned abrnptly toward his
J friend "I have been tempted of late
to lash myself with a scourge. If I had
lived in Martin Lather's time, I would
have bared my back to a self inflicted
Dr. Brace was very pale. Never had
he seen the bishop or heard him when
under the influence of such a passion.
There was a sudden silence in the room.
The bishop had sat down again and
bowed his head. Dr. Brace spoke at last :
"Edward, I do not need to say that
you have expressed my feelings also. I
have been in a similar position for
years. My life has been one of compar
ative luxury. I do not, of course, mean
to say that I have not hard trials and
discouragements and hardens in my
church ministry, bat I cannot say that
I have suffered any for Jesus. That
verse in Peter haunts me, 'Christ also
suffered for yon, leaving you an exam
ple that ye should follow his steps.' I
have lived in luxury. I do not know
what it means to want I also have had
Vny leisure for travel and beautiful com
panionship I have been surrounded by
aoft, easy comforts of civilization. The
sin ksA misery of tr.:s front city have
h"iit like waves aguilttt the stone wulls
of UXJ church and of this house in
which 1 live, and I have hardly heeded
them, the walls have been so thick. I
have reached a point where I cannot
endure this any longer, I am not con
demning the chnrch. I love her. I am
not forsaking the church. I believe in
her mission and have no desire to de
stroy Least of all. in the step 1 nm
(taint to take, do 1 desire to be charged
with abandoning the Christian fellow
ship, but I feel I must resign my place
as pastor of Nazareth Avenue chnrch
in order to sutisfy myself thnt I am
walking ns I ought to walk in his steps.
In this action 1 judge no other minis
ters and pass no criticism on others' i
diacipleahip, but I feel as yon lo Into
a closer contact with the sin anil shame
ami ilt.L-ru.tlu.riou of thi irrent citv I
trail come personally, and I know that
lo do that I must sever my Immediate
connection with' Nazareth Avenue
church. I do not see any other way for
myself to .suffer for his sake as I feci
that I ought to suffer. "
Again thut sadden silence fell over
these two men. It was no ordinary uc
tion they were deciding. Tli" had both
reached the same conclusion by the
same reasoning, and they were too
thoughtful, too well accustomed to the
measuring of conduct, to underestimate
the seriousness of their position.
"What is your plan?" The bishop at
Inst BDoke gi ntlv, looking uii with his
smile that always beautified his face.
Tho bimb.op'1 face grew in glory now
"My plan," replied nr. Bruce slowly,
"is, in brief, the putting of myself into
tho center of the greatest human need
I can find in this city and living there.
My wife is fully in accord with uie.
Wo havo already decided to find a resi
dence in that part of the city where we
can make our personal lives count for
tho most. "
"Let me suggest a place. " Tho bishop
was on tire now. His tine face actually
glowed with the enthusiasm of the
movement in which he and his friend
were inevitably embarked. He went on
nnd unfolded a plan of such farreaching
power and possibility that Dr. Bruce,
capable nnd experienced as he was. felt
amazed nt the vision of a greater soul
than his own.
They sat up Into and were ns enger
nnd even glad as if they were planning
for a trip together to some rare land of
unexplored travel. Indeed the bishop
said many times afterward that the
moment his decision was reached to live
the life of personal sacrifice he had
chosen he suddenly felt an nplifting, as
if a great burden was taken from him.
He was exultant. So was Dr. Bruce
from the snine cause.
Thoir plan as it finally grew into a
workable fact was In reality nothing
more than the renting of a large build
ing formerly used as a warehouse for u
brewery, reconstructing it and living
in it themselves in the very heart of a
territory where the saloon ruled with
power, where the tenement was its
filthiest, where vice and ignorance and
shnnio nnd poverty were congested into
hideous forms. It was not a new idea.
It was an idea started by Jeans Christ
when he left his Father's house and for
sook the richos that were his in order
to get nearer humanity nnd, by becom
ing a pnrt of its sin, help to drnw Im
munity apart from its sin. The univer
sity settlement idea is not modern. It is
as old as Bethlehem and Nazareth, and
in this purticnlnr ense it wus the near
est approach to anything that would
satisfy the hunger of these two men to
suffer for Christ. There had sprung up
in them at the same timo a longing that
amounted to a passion to get nearer the
great physical poverty and spiritual
destitution of tho mighty city that
throbbed around them. How could they
do this except as they became a part
of it, as nearly as one man can become
a part of another's misery? Where was
the suffering to come in unless there
was an actual self denial of some sort ?
And what was to make that self denial
apparent to themselves or any one else
nnless it took this concrete, actual, per
sonal form of trying to share the deep
est suffering and sin of the city ?
So they reasoned for themselves, not
judging others. They were simply keep
ing their own pledge to do as Jesus
would do, as they honestly judged he
would do. Thnt was what they had
promised. How could they qnarrel with
the result? They were irresistibly com
pelled to do what they were planning
Tho bishop had money of his own.
Every one in Chicago knew that the
bishop had a handsome fortune. Dr.
Bruce had acquired and saved by liter
ary work carried on in connection with
his parish duties more than a comforta
ble competence. This money, a largo
part of it. the two friends agreed to put
at once into the work, most of it into
the furnishing of a settlement house.
Meanwhile Nazareth Avenue church
was experiencing something never
known before in nil its history. Tho
simple appeal on the part of its pastor
to his members to do ns Jesus would do
hnd crented a sensation that still con
tinued The result of that appeal was
very much the same as in Henry Max
well's church in Raymond, only Naza
reth Avenue church wns far more aris
tocratic, wealthy and conventional
Nevertheless when one Sunday morn
ing in early summer Dr. Brace came
into his pulpit and announced his resig
nation the sensation deepened all over
the city, although Dr. Bruce had ad
vised with his board of trustees, and the
movement he intended was not a mat
ter of surprise to them.
But when it became publicly known
that the bishop also had announced bis
retirement from the position he had
held so long in order to go and live
himself in the center of the worst part
of Chicago the public astonishment
reached its height
"But why," the bishop replied to
one valued friend who had almost with
tears tried to dissuade him from bis
purpose "why should what Dr. Brace

a doctor of divinity and a bishop
should want to save souls in this par
ticular manlier. If we were to resign
our charges for the purpose of going to
Bombay or Hongkong or any place in
Africa, the churches and the people
would exclaim at the heroism of mis

Chirstian America I Is it a reproach j
upon the form of our discipleship that
the exhibition of actual suffering for
JesUS on the part of those who walk in
his steps always provokes astonishment,
ns at tho sinht of something very un
usual? Naaareth Avenue chnrch parted from
Itl pastor with regret for the most part,
although the regret was modified by
some relief on the part of those who had
refused to take the pledge. Dr. Brace
carried with him the respect of men
who, entangled in business in such a
way that obedience to the pledge would
have ruined them, still held in their
deeper, belter natures a genuine admira
tion for courage and consistency, They
had known Dr. llruco many years as a
kindly, safe man, but the thought of
him in the light of sacrifice of this sort
wns not familiar to them. As fast ns
they under8t.KHl it they gave their pas-
tor the credit of being absolutely true
to his recent convictioiiH ns to what fob

It was fall again, and the city faced
another hard winter. The bishop one
afternoon came out of the settlement
and walked around the block, intending
to go on a visit to one of his new friends
in tho district He hnd walked abont
four blocks when he was attracted by a
shop that looked different from the oth
ers. The neighborhood was still quite
new to the bishop, and every day he
discovered some strange spot or stum-
i bled upon some unexpected humanity.
The place thnt attracted his notice
t was a small house close by a Chinese
' laundry. There were two windows in
, tho front, very clean, and thnt was re
( markable, to begin with. Then inside
'the window was a tempting display of
cookery, with prices attached to the
various articles, that made the bishop
wonder somewhat, for ho was familiar
by this time with many facts in the
life of the people once unknown to him.
As he stood looking at the windows
tho door betwoen them opened, and Fe
licia Sterling came out
"Felicia!" said the bishop. "When
did yon move into my parish without
my knowledge f"
"How did yon find mo so soon?"
"Why, don't you know T These sre
the only clean windows in the block."
"I believe they are," replied Felicia,
