Rev. Dr. Henry Van Dyke delivered a lecture upon "The Ministry" last evening in the Living Room of the Union.
The ministry as a vocation, Dr. Van Dyke explained, is a life consecrated to the spiritual welfare of one's fellow men. In preparation for this life the chief requisites are a broad college education, a thorough theological training, and above all, a wide contact with men.
The main objections to entering the ministry are the criticism and restraint to which clergymen are subjected, but men in all paths of life are open to criticism and are often restrained by public sentiment, which is only of a unique nature in the case of ministers. Although the salary of a minister is not much better than that of an expert cook or carpenter, the remuneration is upon an entirely different scale. It is spiritual. A minister has the satisfaction of the heartfelt gratitude of his fellows, and in old age, the knowledge that he has helped to raise, the lot of mankind by making the world better.
Dr. Van Dyke will deliver a lecture on "Religion," open to members of the University, tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock in the parlor of Phillips Brooks House. He will conduct services in Appleton Chapel tomorrow evening.
