Signs of the Times
The Globe and Mail
From an editorial in The Globe and Mail
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
When Prime Minister Trudeau [of Canada] read from a letter of Saint Paul on Dominion Day, the crowd gathered around the platform in front of the Peace Tower responded with bursts of applause. Out of place? In bad taste? We doubt it. For the sombre manners we usually display for readings of Scripture have more to do with contemporary custom than ancient church history. Worship in the early Christian era was a joyful experience and we could do with some of it in our more formal worship of the sixties.
It was the 13th chapter of First Corinthians the Prime Minister read, one of the most beautiful passages in our literature. And that is both its strength and weakness. For its beauty may distract us from its message.
