What the Churches are Saying FOUNDATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 1 September 1939
What the Churches are Sayin I 04 0 )( FOUNDATIONS. (By Rev. F. H. Butchers) There is something ricketty about life today. It lacks foundations. Forty years ago Ella Wheeler Wilcox wrote in The New Century:. - "With awe I wait till Science leads us on Into the full effulgence of its dawn." Science has certainly led us on, but viewed ethically the dawn is, more like Erebas-midnight. The Prime Minister ventures to tell us that we are not as civilised as we were 40 years ago. The trouble is with the foundations on which the wonderful superstrubture of modern life stands. The correct law in building is that the foundations must be strong enough to bear the superstructure, and today they are hot. Writing one of his amaz ing;'letters.
