Brothers and sisters, I am delighted to be here. In this vast audience we have singers of songs, builders of buildings, dreamers of dreams, cleaners of homes and dirty faces, writers of words, planters of crops, healers of wounds, and preparers of meals who this week have become learners in many areas. I like the theme that this devotional assembly has been given: I thrill with you at the occupation to learn which you have assigned yourselves.

Religion has an affinity with a trained mind, an educated mind.
One time I asked a professor at Baylor when I went to school there what he meant by the word "affinity. So the professor said, "Well, look out there.

But I say there is no exception that the great development of the Christian faith and of the revealed religion of God has it ever been wrought and furthered by the man of the school — the man trained, the learned man, the educated man.

All of them were founded by the religious people. They are products of the schools. Religion has an affinity with a trained and an educated mind. You came, your school came out of the church. Being a journalist, he captured the imagination and the ear of the English people and finally the throne itself; and he organized Sunday Schools all over the land.
