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.

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.
