Signs of the Times

[From the Daily News, Dayton, Ohio, Jan. 23, 1925]

If religion is to have any close application to the life of the individual, it is perfectly apparent that it must be available for every circumstance in life. The man in business needs the influence of religious thought. If we had more of this sort of thing in our commercial and industrial life, most of the outstanding problems that we face would be solved or in the progress of solution. We think, quite often, that religion is largely a thing for children and women. It is that, but it is more. It is something that adults in general, men and women alike, require. The thought of a school which when established would offer to older people a chance to make a close-up study of ... Christianity is as timely as it is interesting. Out of such a collection of adults thinking seriously along these lines, it is reasonable to believe that a vast advance would take place in behalf of civic, state, national, and world problems. These are practical times; and if we only knew it, we have a practical religious rule that we could apply.
