"Let ns play the men (3 Sam. x. 12) was the sentence which the Rev. J. Lewis Jenkins. pastor of Trinity, took as his text on Sunday even- ing. Mr Jenkins remarked that in days gone bv every man almost was a soldier, whereas to-day we had, as Napoleon twitted us, developed into a nation of shopkeepers. Life was less romantic, but still we had the best opportunities to play the man in the highest sense of the word. There were to-day wrong ideas of honour. We were prone to associate this quality too much with militarism, and forget' that the artisan had the same opportunity to show honourable conduct as the soldier had. BROTHERHOOD. At the open Brotherhood meeting held at Green Street Chapel on Sunday afternoon last large congregation was addressed by the president, the Rev. J. Ellis. who spoke on "The First Christians.' Mr Ettis referred to the inspiring influences of the pioneer ministry of Christianity. It was said of a sermon by Peter that his words pierced the hearts of thousands of his hearers. This differed greatly from the comments made nowadays on the ser- mons we heard, many of which had a soothing rather than a disturbing effect on our consciences. Peter's hearers asked wildly, "What shall we do?" This was forgotten in the conventional decorum of present day worship. We never heard the Amen now except when chanted by the organ. Touching upon the niggardly attitude of protessuig Christians towards religious efforts Mr Ellis remarke<l that at a recent circuit meeting the collection averaged a half- penny per individual present, wherea? people could nnd sixpences and shillings to go to the picture-halls and theatres.— A solo. "Flee as a bird."was sung by Mrs Williams, Gadlys. Mr A. E. Harm- ston was at the organ, and the orchestra was in attendance. PRESENTATION.
