Yesterday evening in Appleton Chapel Dr. Henry Van Dyke preached an interesting sermon on Courage, taking his sernion from the 27th psalm, 14th verse. "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He shall strengthen thy heart." The speaker made of his subject three divisions. First, what is courage? Second, how shall we obtain it? Third, what good will it do us? Recklessness is not courage; the former founded on ignorance, the latter on knowledge. Insensibility is not courage and daring is but courage displayed at a great crisis. True courage then is that quality shown in the conscientions performance of duty. We may strengthen our courage in several ways; by active physical life, by abstaining from pessimistic literature and by associating with high minded men. The best means, however, of maintaining our courage is by "waiting on the Lord."
