Unseemly Levity

The following were found in a religious magazine designed for the spiritual nurture of ministers, Pulpit Helps to be specific: "The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind. They may be seen in the basement on Friday afternoon," and "The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday" (both from "More Bulletin Bloopers", p. 17 of the August issue).

The Scriptures teach us to "gird up the loins of our minds," to cultivate pure and upright thoughts. "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."

You have some spiritually stimulating articles on moral conduct in your paper. Perhaps you should consider one on sanctified thought life.

I really expected more of you than this.
