An Opportunity

WE are very glad that one of our valued contributors to this issue of the Sentinel has called attention to the desirability of immediate and generous liberality in the matter of the Building Fund of the Mother Church, and we heartily concur in his statement that "the time is at hand, now, for this entire donation to be specifically subscribed as to amount and date of payment."

Our readers have been informed of the purchase of the land upon which the new building will be erected, and that this land has been paid for. The location is, therefore, determined. The size of the building was decided last June, but there still remain for definite decision the amount to be expended and the date for commencing building operations. The pledge of the annual meeting was "any portion of two million dollars that may be necessary for this purpose," and this, of course, carried the implication that work should be commenced as soon as the money in hand justified the letting of contracts.

The spontaneous and liberal donations which enabled those having the work in charge to secure the large parcel of land adjoining the Mother Church, gives promise of the speedy accumulation of a sum sufficient to justify the decision of these remaining problems. Each person interested, must remember, however, that his individual desires, both as to the amount to be expended and the date of commencing work, will be best evidenced by the liberality and promptness of his own contribution.
