November 1961


Editorial: God's Pulpit

It is true that the man of God must "re­prove, rebuke, exhort," but that is only part of the apostolic admonition. These things are to be done "with all longsuffering and doctrine" (2 Tim. 4:2). In the R.S.V. the words are rendered "be unfail­ing in patience and in teaching."


The True Thanksgiving Spirit

The one hundredth psalm is a beautiful poem that climaxes six consecutive psalms of thanksgiving. In this poem all peoples of earth, friendly and hostile alike, are invited to join Israel in offering thankful praises to God for His abundant mercies and blessings.


"Never Lose Your Sense of Urgency" Part 1

Tucked away in Paul's Second Epistle to Timothy, as translated by J. B. Phillips, is a message that should burn its way into the thinking of every Seventh-day Adventist worker. It is a message espe­cially for us who lead God's people in these last days.


The Minister and Culture (Concluded)

It is not difficult for a minister to under­stand the value and importance of wide reading. After all, sermon writing is a re­sponsibility that is ever with him and which the conscientious minister takes se­riously. Less understood, often, is the im­portance of culture in the fields of music and art.


Fringe Benefits

One wonders what the Advent Move­ment is coming to when the call to service is weighed and considered on the basis of the fringe benefits that go with the job. Would it not create the right atmosphere for a genuine revival of gospel service if we could recapture the right spirit of labor­ing for Christ? What did He offer His dis­ciples?


"Logos" and "Lalia"

After a night on the Mount of Olives, Jesus came to the Temple to teach the people. It was to be a busy day.


"What Think Ye of Christ?"

Although Jesus made sure that men understood His divinity and oneness with God, there are countless millions who through the ages have denied this.


Andrews University Extension School at Beirut, Lebanon

Adventist ministers and teachers in the Middle East enjoyed a special em­phasis this summer on the study of evangelistic proce­dures and the Bible in the light of archeology. The ex­perience was one that will long be remembered and appreciated.


Dedicating the Church

The dedication of a church is always a most inspirational and joyous hour. Understand­ably, the pastor is eager to de­velop a dignified, meaningful service worthy of the occasion.


The Cairo Center

THE story of the Cairo Center is a story of the mirac­ulous love and power of the Lord. Christian leaders of both Orthodox and Protestant denominations have been amazed to learn that Seventh-day Adventists received per­mission to build such an institution on one of the city's main squares.


Some Books I Can Recommend

Book recommendations from Harold L. Calkins


Daniel Eight in the New Testament

It is a significant fact that the only time Christ gave a command to understand a specific Old Testament proph­ecy He placed His finger upon Daniel 8:9-14. Not only so, but the two chief writers of the New Testament, Paul and John, by allusion to this same prophecy re­inforced their Lord's admonition.


What Has Happened to the Singing Evangelist?

Why is it on the testimony of administrators and leading evangelists that the number of singing evangelists is constantly dwindling? Is there a reason why each year those who are talented in this line are seeking and accepting other work within the ranks of the organiza­tion? It would be folly for me to think that I have the answer, but I would like to share some of my convictions.


Spiritual Witness in Our Sanitarium

This article will deal with the workers of the Hinsdale Sanitarium and Hos­pital at Hinsdale, Illinois. This institution is bearing strong witness for the truth. It seems appropriate that a report should go out to the readers of the Ministry magazine, giving a brief resume of what is actually being accomplished by way of evangelism.


Candles in the Night—No. 4

Quakerism has made distinctive contribu­tions to Christian thought. Its women were spiritually inclined, domestically skilled, and had courage like steel. In fact, the te­nacity of Quaker women made history.


Protestant Episcopal Church—Anglican

The American Episcopal church is a self-governing branch of the Anglican Communion. At the 1930 Lambeth Conference it was declared as a "Fellowship within the one, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church ... in communion with the See of Canterbury."
