A JOURNAL FAMILY ALBUM

In January, we began a series in appreciation of the Journal's contribution to the twentieth century. This month we reprint selections from the period 1911-1920. Over-shadowing all else in the decade was the Great War, now known as World War I. The article that follows, lifts us above a materially based view of man, above struggles with loss and sorrow, to an assurance of the immortality of man and of his unbroken unity with God, with indestructible good. Then there are two testimonies that vividly illustrate God's protecting power on the battlefield and at sea.

We would resist the selfish temptation to yield our thoughts to the dread of shipwreck and death.
