Annual Conference meets in Dallas
Have you been to church lately?
Did you know that your empty
pew has an eloquent tongue.
Though its message is unpleasant
it is one that all may hear. To the
Preacher the empty pew says,
"Your sermon is not worth while."
To the visitor it whispers, "You
see, we are not quite holding our
own." To the treasurer it shouts,
"Look out for the deficit." To
the stranger who is looking for a
church home it suggests, "You had
better wait a while." To the mem-
bers who are present it asks, "Why
don't you go visiting next Sunday,
too?" The empty pew speaks a-
gainst the services. It kills in-
spiration and smothers hope. It
dulls the fine edge of zeal. The
empty pew is a weight. The oc-
cupied pew is a wing. "Thou wilt
be missed because thy seat will
be empty." (I Sam. 20:18.)
But you say everything in the
world today is in such turmoil
and I have so many cares I do not
have the time or care to go to
church. Perhaps there is a thought
in these lines:
He laughed at what he thought
"I come to church? Oh, no!
The walls would fall fiat in
As they did at Jericho."
"Yes, some church walls are
As planes flash overhead,
Because men were indifferent
To services," I said.
When next we sang the Doxology,
Our church walls stood, and so
Thought for the Week:
When it is finally settled that a
thing is impossible, watch some
fellow do it.
