FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[Rev. W. E. Orchard, D.D., in The Christian Commonwealth.]

What does the message command to us here today? The building of a highway; a road by which the people may travel to a completer realization of the kingdom of God. The existing ways are plainly insufficient. The old well-worn ways of religion are deserted. Nothing can disguise the fact that the old paths are no longer frequented. Whether in matters of thought or practise, an enormous change has come over our age, and is ever more widely manifesting itself in the defection of vast masses of the people from the beliefs and the guidance which contented our fathers. This may be regarded as an apostasy from the one hope of the world, and strenuous efforts may be made, by repairing the roads and erecting new signposts, to attract pilgrims back again. But very few would be found willing to identify these ancient roadways with the way of life, while it is a matter of history that humanity never returns to walk again a way it has once forsaken.
