The minister is expected to be many things to many men. Among these many things, he is expected to be a person of good taste and an exponent of the humane and the beautiful. He must be this in spite of handicaps, not the least of which may have been an education that was vocational rather than liberal. And since leaving college he probably has had to contend with a crowded daily program.
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.
All who would fully utilize the present and all who hope to make their future profitable, dare not neglect giving attention to the past.
