But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.…
A new and characteristic incident in the life of that sweet singer of Israel, Miss Havergal, comes to light in the recently published autobiography of her sister. The former was conversing with a minister who was not disposed to press home the gospel message. "Oh, why don't you preach the gospel of Christ?" she exclaimed. "My congregation are well educated and well acquainted with the truths of salvation; if they were Zulus, I should preach differently," was the reply. "Then let me be a Zulu next Sunday," was the rejoinder, "and just preach at me." A real gospel sermon was the result. It might pay a minister now and then to imagine some Zulus among his auditors, and prepare his sermon accordingly.
