FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[Francis D. Peabody in The Congregationalist.]

There are many channels through which the life of man is led toward the life of God; sometimes through the convictions of the reason, sometimes through the exaltation of the emotions; but it is not impossible that the present age is drawing men toward the eternal through the dedication of the will to human service. The new humanism may utter itself in language unfamiliar to the traditions of religion; it may seem to many religious people remote or even alien from the practices of the Church; but it is at bottom a new spiritual movement of human solidarity and obligation, and it may be the first premonition of a coming renaissance of religious responsibility and consecration. So large a movement of moral education is not likely to fulfil itself without expanding into a new type of religious education. The emergence of the social conscience indicates a new path for religious teaching and religious experience.
