The text of Rev. Henry Van Dyke's sermon yesterday evening was Hebrews xi : 8, "And he went out not knowing whither he went." He said: (1) Faith is an adventure, it is going out into the unknown future under the guidance of God. Faith recognizes that life is a pilgrimage whose course and duration can not be forseen. The man who has no faith either accepts the uncertainty of life as a necessity of fate, he is caught in the net of a hidden destiny which to him can never seem anything else than a blind chance because there is no purpose and no love in ie: or else he fights against the uncertainty of life and tries to conquer it by his own skill and prudence and pertinacity. Thus every event that crosses his plan is a cause of anxiety and irritation, and every call of duty that lies outide of it is an interruption and a burden. (2) In the broadest meaning of faith's adventure is the surrender of life to a hidden guidance. Faith knows whither Christ has gone and it knows the hidden way. And along that way it presses to its promised land of peace.
