The regular meeting of Classis West was held in the newly remodeled church building of Doon, Iowa. It was a pleasure to all the delegates to accept the invitation of Doon Church to meet there, and to make use of their newly installed facilities. The meeting was opened with the usual preliminaries.

The text reads literally: “But when Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him. . . .” This hardly can be interpreted as referring to repentance on the part of Moses. Neither, do we think that such is the...

In the last installment of this department we began to give our answer to an excuse that is generally given for not sending our children to schools where they may be trained as children of God’s kingdom. The excuse we began to answer is the one that many who never were sent to such schools turned out to be good Christians and even attained to high offices in the church. At this time we would like to pen down a few added thoughts besides those we gave last time. We would begin then by reminding you that the dangers to...
