From our Exchanges

The growth of a religious spirit in the settlement and adjustment of international affairs, is an evidence that the public conscience is receiving stimulation from some source which leads it on to a reasonable consideration of questions involving international rights, duties, and obligations. This is the religious spirit; it is the spirit which comes from very old teaching; it is the Pauline method of adjusting difficulties in the church, it is now become the universal method of settling difficulties between employers and employees; and now the spirit is going up higher, into the work of nations themselves. This means a new patriotism; that patriotism which is born of a pure religious spirit; it means devotion to a higher principle; it means the patriotism of personal sacrifice, and it is higher type of patriotism than that exemplified on the battlefield.
