Signs of the Times

[Rev. Jos. M. Henderson, in the Christian Advocate, New York, New York]

The world to-day does not know what peace is. It must let its mind go back to a glorious morning when the sky was full of light and when the choir of angels sang their song on the plains of Bethlehem—"On earth peace, good will toward men." That was the song of peace, from the Prince of Peace. Nations do not have to actually kill each other, only be jealous of each other, to hinder good will. . . . When speaking at Richmond at the close of the Civil War, beloved Abraham Lincoln said: "The war is at an end now. There is no North, and no South. Their song shall be our song and we will sing 'Dixie.' " Not until that sense of common brotherhood shall permeate the peoples of the world will peace come.
