WHY DO WE ESCAPE? Rev. J. D. Landells on "Sin." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 February 1914
WHY DO WE ESCAPE? Rev. J. D. Landells on "Sin." In Port Melbourne Presbyterian Church, Rev. J. D. Landels took as his tet::-"'HI? hath not dealt with us Safter our sins ' "--Psalm 103: 10. M1ost of us, he said, have been so accustomed to hear the more sombre tone of judg ment sounded in our ears, that when the sweeter tone of mercy comes forth it is not recognised. It was the result of a life-long experience that the Psalmist here expresses. The text is one that bears upon its bosom a win someness so like the touch of God in the breeze that comes from the I south. But they are words that should set us thinlking how far they nias be true in our experience. The first thought that forces itself here is a personal one--"Our Sins." it is amazing, aye, almost appalling, to think how this matter is put away into the regions of things altogether unimportant. Strange that sin should be seen in others and not in ourselves. Too ready are we to execute speedy punishment upon the person whose si...

It goes without saying that the promoters of the bazaar, in aid of the local football club were delighted with the opening ceremony, on Thurs day evening. The talk of having se cured £20 in almost as many min utes was something to make their hearts glad. "That's something like business," one of the officials was heard to remark, as the offers of £5 donations were following fast on each other. Simple decorations had made the Town Hall pretty in a homely sort of way. The officials had worked hard to deck out the various stalls and willing helpers had assisted to hang streamers of bunting and paper flow ers overhead. During the three nights in which the bazaar was open it was lhopled by the energetic committee to secure £100. Mr. Frank Opitz, the newly-elected president of the club, presided at the inaugural function and formally introduced CRIOWDS WILL ROLL UP'. The Hon. J. G. Aikman. M.L.C.: who formally declare...
