The supreme object of every missionary meeting should be to advance the cause of missions. This should be the definite aim in selecting every item of a missionary programme.
Comic recitations, secular solos, and dramatic readings are often given a place, on the pretext of attracting those not interested in missions. No matter how excellent or elevating they may be in themselves, they have no right to a place on a missionary programme. Such a mixture is likely to result in defeat, and to be ridiculed by the very ones it was desired to reach. If the leader himself thinks there is so little interest in missions that he must resort to other things to keep his meeting from being stupid, others are likely to agree with him. There is wonderful drawing power in Christ: there is wonderful fascination in Christian work: and in winning others we may safely depend upon prayer, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the presence of Him who said, 'Lo, I am with you alway.'
Let nothing foreign to the subject of missions creep into the programme.
