MY mind has been turning, on the train
and in my experiences of the week, to
this expression of Jesus Christ, in the
words which I read to you this morning:
"Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye
also go away? Then Simon Peter answered
him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast
the words of eternal life."

NO OTHER PLACE TO GO By RUSSELL H. CONWELL, D.D. MY mind has been turning, on the train and in my experiences of the week, to this expression of Jesus Christ, in the words which I read to you this morning: "Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." "To whom shall we go?" I have found through the country a very serious decadence of the Christian churches, in membership and in spiritual power. In many places the churches are poor and dis-couraged, and the officers speak with gloom, that "the war is taking the place of the church," and that people talk politics now, and not religion. Consequently they feel that there is a sad outlook for the Christian churches. So I have asked myself, "To whom can we

go?" If the church does go out of existence; 37 if it has to disband, "To whom shall we go?" Where shall we turn? What can take the place of the church? Who can do the church's work? A year or two ago, there was a town in the state of Washington which has, I think, from eleven hundred to fifteen hundred inhabit-ants, which used to have so many churches they could not find people to attend them. So they disbanded them all and now they have no church, and now they are looking for some one to come in and begin all anew. But the condition of that town without a preacher so strangely disorganized is in the neglect of the Sabbath Day, in its injury to business, in social life of the town ; and its effect leads one to see what would be the disaster to mankind if the Christian church were to be disbanded. Where can you go? What can you set up in

place of the church? These people put in the "movies"; they tried to put in "moral in-fluences" that were uplifting to the commun-ity; they have put in baseball and football, they have put in excursions and all sorts of things on Sundays, to take the place of the church. But they did not take the place of the church, and every one felt that they did not. They said they were all disgusted with 38 UNUSED POWERS it, even those who did not go to church. They became anxious about it and came to see me, to find out if it were not possible to send some one from Pennsylvania to open one of the buildings and have a real live, Christian church. To whom can the people go, but to the Saviour of all mankind?
