Cleaves Temple
27th and Decatur Street
The Cleaves Temple Sunday School
is one of the most interesting church
schoos in the city. The enrollment
runs high. So crowded have the Sun
day School rooms become that the
adult class is having its classes at
the Parsonage. Each teacher has been
well prepared and well qualified for
the task of teaching. We have in
our group teachers who are outstand
ing religious educators. We are
working out new methods new plans
and new ways of presenting facts to
our students. We believe that religion
is to be lived and not a formular to
be used after death. It will be worth
while for any individual to attend
this school.
One cx the most unique aitairs ox
the Sunday School was the Talent
Rally. It was a contest for talents!
Oh boy. what talents. Thei'e were ex
traordinary talents super talents big
talents and small talents.
Each student was given a penny
for a talent. The one who invested
this penny and brought in $3.60. Miss
Beatrice Berkley Williams of Ohio
Street won the highest Pri3e in the
Junior Department. She brought in'
$2.00 with her penny: Little Miss
Williams is one of our outstanding:
students. She ranks high in her class !
activities. The next contest is a rally
between each member of the classes.
Little Master Greenfield wants it
known that the rest of his class
mates must go some to surpass him.
Little Miss Royler tells the primar
ies to look out. In the Junior Class
they are saying that Miss Beatrice
Williams can’t get away with this
prize. All of the intermediates are
stirred up. In the Young People’s
Class the far daughters are saying
we must have the prize while the
handsome sons are casting lots
among themselves. In the Adult
Class each is watching the other.
Such a grim contest has never been
seen before. Folks; if you want to be
in the whirl in the rea swim of life;
if you want to be in that magnificent
crowd of gay and happy people then
come to Cleaves Temple. Sunday
School. There is something of inter
est at all times. Watch out for the
big Sunday School Party. It will be
one of the most unique and inU-cost
ing auai» that has ever been given,
ihe Ten ttride Wedding
Who is th> Unknown •Graoni.' He
certainly is running the laches swise
er ..lean nuts, they are all in love
with him. The great mystery abou. u
is they don’t know who he is. I’ve
never know my people to keep such
a secret. I can hardly rest for tele
phones ringing and women talking.
What do you suppose all this racket
married to one man. Oh my what a
is about? Ten ladies are trying to get
man! Some of them says that he is a
big high; handsome brown skin so
ciety man. But nobody knows who
Wish it was me. There might be a
possibility cf all ten of the ladies;
ghiting married. There is no way of
finding out wh ohe is. If it were; you |
know' ten ladies sure would find out.
All Omaha is stirred up. They are I
longing and waiting patiently for the j
unknown groom to appear. Like a
ground hog he is waiting for the sec- j
ond of April. Then they say he will
appear: Come see this mysterious
man that’s stirring up the people of
Omaha. Purchase your tickets now: :
The preaching services began at
eleven o'clock. The pastor Rev. 0- A.
Calhoun, ascended the rostrum filled
with the spirit as usual. He took his
text from Mathtews 25:31. He used
for a subject: ‘‘Doing Religion.” In
substance he said “In Judgment God
Shall Be Judge and Jesus the Per
secuting Attorney- Men in sin are in
opposition to Christ. They are a
gainst him and his program.
In life we fail to get justice some
times because there is so much to
enter into life’s equasions. The Scotts
boro Boys are failing to get justice
because of racial prejudice. We fail
to get justice because of selfishness;
political bosses; meager affairs ect
Ladies and Gentlemen; men and
send themselves to Hell. There are
many ways by which this is done.
Men send themselves to Hell by ly
ing; stealing; murdering drinking
cursing committing wrong social
acts leading wrong kinds of lives.
Some people think that religion is
a matter between God and man. The
religion of Jesus Christ is not only;
songing praying shouting getting
happy crying and paying but it is a
matter dealing with our fellow men
Some people are saints at church and
the devil at home its nothing to that
kind of religion. One maybe able to
sing and pray until the shingles seem
to fly off the roof; but what good is
that if we get on the outside with a
long lying tongue. Religion is a mat
ter that affects us daily. Then he
gave many definitions from religion
from leading authors. The most
sti iking def illation was one from
William James—‘^Religion is visiting
the sick the fatherless widows and
orphans and keeping unspotted from
the world” Then he said: “Religion
affects not world.” Then he said;
“Religion Affects Not Ony my Re
tionship with God but aso my re
lationship with my fellow men. Can’t
spot me means much. In fact; it has
meant too much- Men are doing all
kinds of things and boast abqut no
body can sport me: Religion friends
is what you do and not what you
say-” Everybody was inspired by this
wonderful expander of the Gospel.
Sunday evening at 3 o'clock the
pastor’s wives gave a program. It
was enjoyed by all. The Epworth
League is progressing nicely. W e in
vite you to come to the league
Sunday evening at 7:45 the pastor
preached another wonderful sermon.
He took his text from Acts 17:6. He j
used as a subject: “The Gospel a Re
volution.” In substance he said: “The :
Gospel should create a disturbance, j
If the gospel is not creating a dis-1
turbance; we as preachers and christ- j
ians are not doing out part- John the ■
Baptist created a disturbance and
men could not rest until they repent- ]
ed of their sins; where ever the
apostles went they created a distur
bance. In Ephesus; the apostles stir
red the people to such an extent; I
that they burned their books. Homes i
were crowded with a kinds of trashy
hoodue; black magic and fortune
telling books. We need a barn fire
today to burn up some of the trashy
books in our homes. Then we will- get
somewhere
Then he taled of how the gospel
revolutionizes the heart and social
conditions. He talked of how the
gospel revolutionizes the heart and
social conditions. He talked of the
.1 heum homes; the home for girls j
cut. Then he said that we as Christ-1
Ians are to make the world better- If
we are not; then we are*not carrying
cut Christ’s Plan ” Rev. Calhoun is aj
great pastor a wonderful preacher:
and a profound orator. Once you,
hear him; you will nor ritret having)
that strong da ire of returning. All:
who are desirous to hear him should i
cen t early because of the huge
crowds.

JESUS RESPONDS TO FAITH
| LESSON TEXT il. tt. 1! ' 1 58-14:13.
414-15:21-31.
' GOLDEN TEXT— A“k and It shall b<-i
given you. seek and ye shall llnd,
(knock and It shall he opened unto
you.—Matt. 7:7.
I PRIM ART TOPIC—Jesus Helps a
I Stranger.
JUNIOR TOPIC—When People Trust
Jesus.
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR'
jTOPlC—A Mother's Love and Faith.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TUI’
UC—Faith Tested and Triumphant.
I. The Unbelief of Jesus' Own Coun 1
Itrymen (13:54-58).
: Jesus shared the common fule of
iineu, unacknowledged in his own coun !
try. Even his own brothers did not
melieve in him until after his resur
rection (John 7:3-8; cf. Acts 1:14).’
jBecituse of this unbelief only a limited
work could he done there.
( II. Jesus Responding to the Faith of
(the Multitude (Matt. 14:13, 1 '<).
1 1. He retired to the desert (v. 13).
jTlie news of the cruel death of John
Jthe Baptist brought grief to the heart |
|pf Jesus and he withdrew to a place
jof quietness to commune with the'
tieaveniy Father. Jesus accepted John's
idea ill as typical of liis own.
j 2. Followed by the people (v. 13).'
The people were so greatly Interested
in him that they followed him on foot
jout of the cities.
! 3. Jesus healing the sick (v. 14).
Although the rulers had broken with
|him, he did not abandon his work.
Though desperate and hopeless cases
jwere brought to him, none was found
too hard for him.
I lit. Jesus Responding to the Faith
yof a Woman of Canaan (Matt. 15:21
31).
1. The mother’s awful distress (vv
pi, 22). Her daughter was grievously
[vexed with a devil. The daughter was
|the one who was afflicted, but it was
[the mother who carried the burden.
jNo doubt this Gentile woman had
heard of the fame of Jesus. His power
to heal had come to her notice and
doubtless many times she longed for
him to come her way that her daugh
ter might be healed. Now that lie was
in ber neighborhood she came straight
way to him.
2. The mother's fervent appeal for
help (vv. 23-25). She humbly fell at
his feet and pleaded for mercy. She
besought him to cast the demon out.
, Her appeal may be considered as a
model prayer.
a. It was sincere and earnest. From
The depths of her heart she cried to
j the Lord for help.
b. It was brief and definite. In a
,few well chosen words she besought
the Lord in behalf of her daughter.
' c. It was personal and humble. The
, Lord is pleased when we beseech him
in behalf of personal friends as well
as ourselves. She came humbly, for
according to Mark's account she fell
at his feet (Mark 7:25).
1 d. It was believing and persistent.
Though she was outside of the cove
nant people, she believed the Lord
would hear a cry of need. All who
accept Christ are his covenant people.
She persistently begged help of the
Lord. She would not accept a refusal.
The Lord is pleased with the soul who
will not let him go until the blessing
is granted (Luke 11:5-10, 18:1-8).
3. The woman's faith rewarded (vv
20-28).
a. Jesus’ apparent refusal fv. 23).'
He answered her not a word. This.
seems strange that to her distressing
cry he was irresponsive. Scarcely ever
did anyone have to ask the second
time. Frequently he did not wa*t to be
asked. The reason for his silence was ’
that a real difficulty lay in the way.
He was sent to the lost sheep of the
house of Israel. This woman was a
ptranger to the covenant people. Her
bppeal was on the wrong basis. She
addressed him as the son of David,
which only a child of the kingdom, an
Israelite, had a right to do.
b. The woman’s quick response (vv.
23-27). As soon as she perceived the
difficulty she worshiped him as Lord
and cried for help. While only the
Israelite could approach him ay the
son of David, all can come to him and
own him as Lord. She willingly took
her place as a Oentile “dog,” recog
nizing that salvation is of the Jews
The word 'or dog is a diminutive term
used for the pet or household dog
which had a right to the crumbs which
•Cell froru the tabic.
c. The glorious issue of her faith
(v. 28). She received more than she
asked. Her daughter was healed at
once while the instructions she re
ceived were worth much to her. She
goes down in history with the Savtor *
commendation of her fa.th.
