MET IN OSKALOOSA, IOWA, SEPTEMBER 6, 1950 This Classis was called together by Rev. J. Van We el den. Psalter 24 is sung, the Chairman reads Romans 12 and offers prayer. Roll-call reveals that eleven congregations are represented, but three of them lack an elder representation. Classis’ attention is called to this matter. Complete representation is urged. The credentials are accepted and the meeting constituted.
Beginning with this issue the undersigned has been asked to write for this rubric in our Standard Bearer. And although this rubric has appeared in the Standard Bearer for several years already, and is therefore not new to the readers, this is nevertheless a new beginning. A new beginning it is both from the point of view that the undersigned has not previously written, except occasionally, in any of our periodicals, and certainly from the point of view of the fact that to read “In His Fear” is far different than writing for this rubric.

Writes he: “I am sorry to note that the contribution of Mr. Feenstra in the July 1st issue of the Standard Bearer was approved for publication without any comment.”
“For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him; therefore also I have lent him to the Lord: as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he worshipped the Lord there.” I Sam. 1:27, 28 No, the beginning of godly education of the child Samuel was not with Hannah. I think that we strike here at the outstanding weakness of Christian education today. We begin in history and not with God in eternity.
