strive if wo seek faithfully to follow
Him to mako young men nnd women
awaro of tho potential power and tho
ublimity of every noble personality.
Character in its truest nnd highest
meaning can not result from aimless"
and disregard of moral obligations
Tho chnracter-bulldlng possibilities of
tho Christian school arc suggested in
that memornblo statement by Wood-
rowWilson: "Christianity is tho most
inspiring force in human life." Tho
spirit of charity of unselfish service
t oour fellow men in all the earth
must become regnant before distrust
and fear outof.whlch misunderstand
ing and conflict spring shall "bo ban-
ished. Tlfo dream of tho poet
"Till tho war-drum throbbed no long-
er and the battlo flags wcro furled
In the Parliament of man tho Feder-
ation of tho world"
can never bo realized savo by tho con-
trolling power of Christian ideals in
tho lives of men.
Christian Education also alms at
the high coal of vitalized living. It
helps men to sco that it is a small
thing to makb a living but a sublimo
thing to make a life. Tho profound
importance of that truth 1s exempli-
fied in the effort of tho citizens of
Cambridge Massachusetts to pay
worthy tribute to ono of their honored
sons by -inscribing over his portrait
in the Harvard Memorial Hall his oft-
repeated words: "Never forget the ev-
erlasting differenco between making a
living and making n lif." Tho mis-
sion of Christianity in part at least
is to change -and inspire tne minds
tho hcnrt3 tho lives of men. It is for
pushing this mission that Christian
instiutions exist. They afford tho
largest opportunltie.i for lelping men
to learn to live vi.a.ly to live lifo to
the utmos:. ""
Christian Educntion will if given
the opportunity that it deserves help
to transform tho world to bring into
being that marvelous picture which
Isaiah foresaw. It is tho education
embodying Ijruly tho spirit of learning
ennobled by reverence.'-'
