The undersigned is very happy with the “Apology” of Rev. M. Schipper in the February 1 issue of The Standard Bearer for the use of the term “playing church,” and he accepts it also, and wishes to assure his colleague that the frank apology warmed the cockles of his heart .

Lord’s Day 51 Chapter Three: A Serious Limiting Clause  It is plain, too, that in this parable this, servant was serving the king with the king’s goods. Of himself he had nothing.
