ROUND THE CHURCHES. Go to Church Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 1 August 1914
ROUND THE CHURCHES. Go to Church Sunday. This is an idea from America. Some ideas from America are good some not so good. This one has worked out well where tried in Aus tralia. The novelty of the idea has proved very attractive to some folks, and many who had drifted out of the habit of going to church has been able to renew the old order, much to their own satisfaction. At least it won't do a man any hann to ao and see what the churches are like. He won't get his morals coitupted at all by so doing. A good many who criticise the churches would doso less if they knew their work. It is at -least reasonable we should all get acquainted with what is oing on in our midst, and that we cannot do unless we come into personal touch with what is being done. We shall be glad to hear of all the churches being crowded to-morrow, as they were at Williamstown last Sunday, where a Go-to-Church Sunday was held. Sermons appropriate to the occasion will be preached in all the churches..

GO-TO-CHURCH SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 1 August 1914
GO-TO-CHURCH SUNDAY; We have been furnished with the following passionate appeal " to a man who has ceased to. go to church ": My Dear Friend, I understand that you have given up going to church. I wonder why? I do not insult you by supposing that you have quarrelled with anybody-minis ter, elder, or fellow-member. And yet there is nothing more curious in modern life than'the fact that a personal squa'bble, or a spice of jealousy, or a griev ance, real or imaginary, often seems to alter-outwardly, at least-some men's entire rela tionship to the universe. Now, the giving of offence is a shame and a crime, but the tak ing of offence is sheer stupidity, especially when it leads to the snapping of such a tie as church fellowship. Neither do I credit the sug gestion made to me that you: have left us because of the music. Although people are not sure whether it is becauise our music is too choral or too con gregational, I feel certain that is not the reason. Your sense of humour would for...
