The Last Poem – Part 1 . . .

From the book:

    What a good sermon might, and probably should be, may be gathered from the following:

It should be warm – a living altar coal,
To melt the icy heart, and captivate the soul;
A sapless, dull harangue, however read,
Will never rouse the soul, or raise the dead.

It should be simple, true, and clear;
No fine-spun theory to please the ear;
No curious lay, to tickle lettered pride,
And leave the poor and plain unedified.

Continued on Monday . . . .

   I have a few thoughts from one of my good friends for the previous post coming soon.

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
