This is a brief and unofficial report. It must needs be brief, because my space in this issue is already more than used. The official report, which will also be complete, will appear in the Acts, which will make its appearance in a month or two. At the pre-synodical service, under the auspices of the Hope (Walker) Consistory, the Rev. J. Kortering led us, preaching an appropriate sermon the admonition found in I Corinthians 15:58.
