Annual Index. This issue marks the end of Volume 62. As usual, an index of the entire volume appears in this issue. This necessitates the omission of some of our regular departments.

You will find the annual index in this issue. All of which reminds me that we are still waiting for the projected master index of all the volumes, going back to Volume 1. When is it coming, brethren? There will be some significant changes in Volume 62. These will be announced in the October 1 issue. But these changes will also involve an end for...

Please! Send all announcements, obituaries, in memoriams, and anniversary notices to our Business Office (see masthead), not to me. The chances are good that if they are sent to me, they may be misplaced and/or delayed. Accompany such notices with proper payment. This issue is the last of our current volume-year. You will find in it the annual index. To make room for the index some departments, including News From Our Churches, have been omitted. —HCH

Much of this issue is taken up with the recent synod of the Protestant Reformed Churches. The synod met from June 10 through June 17 in Hudsonville, MI. The meditation is the text of the pre-synodical sermon the evening of June 9 by Rev. James Slopsema, president of last year’s synod. The editorial reports some of the major decisions of the synod. A feature article gives the first part of the address at the commencement exercises of two graduates of the Protestant Reformed Seminary. These exercises were held during the week that synod met and were attended by the synod...

Subjects include “The Reformed Conflict with Rome”; “The Anabaptist Controversy”; “The Reformation and Freedom”; “Reformation and Scripture”; “The Reformation and Worship”; “The Reformation of 1924”; “The Reformation of 1953”; “The Synod of Dordt”; “Abraham Kuyper and the Reformation of 1886”; “The Reformation and the Last Things”; “John Knox”;...

Volume 79 of the Standard Bearer, which begins with this issue of the magazine, is planned to be very much like the preceding volume. The only change of rubrics or writers is that Rev. Garrett Eriks will join Rev. Richard Smit and Rev. Daniel Kleyn in writing the column, “In His Fear.” We welcome Rev. Eriks as a regular contributor. The staff reappointed all the functionaries of the Standard Bearer. The committee on special issues informed the annual meeting that it has planned a Reformation Day issue for October 15 around the theme of “The Reformation and a Holy Life.”...

In this issue of the Standard Bearer appears the first installment of our reprinting of Abraham Kuyper’s When Thou Sittest in Thine House. The work was originally a series of meditations in Kuyper’s religious periodical, De Heraut (The Herald). The articles were published in book form in 1899 with the title, Als Gij in Uw Huis Zit: Meditatien voor het Huislijk Saamleven. In 1929 Eerdmans published an English translation by John Hendrik DeVries with the title, When Thou Sittest in Thine House: Meditations on Home Life. The book is out-of-print. It is this translation that we are publishing serially in...
