Signs of the Times

From a Letter to the Editor by Mrs. Marjorie H. Moore in the Times-Dispatch, Richmond, Virginia

I feel that the work of the church is primarily to praise God and glorify His name. The church building should be kept sacred to the extent, at least, that worshipers have a place to go to find God and be in His presence. There must be some sanctuary for the soul—a place apart from the strains and stresses of the world.

Therefore, I resent any discussions from the pulpit that create agitation or are not conducive to the spiritual-like quietness necessary to attune my will to God's. (It is impossible to be half-angry and listening for His direction for my life at the same time.)
