A Lay Sermon (1913)

Introduction: A message of love:

First Thesis: The Fatherhood of God:

	Introductory question: who "our Father" refers to
	Answer: whom Jesus addressed
The Fatherhood of God implies the brotherhood of Mankind
	Past Perspective: they did not understand reasons
	Contemporary Perspective: we can understand
Second Thesis: Because of the Fatherhood of God, men are brothers
	Example 1: Disasters
		Our response
		God is good
Ignorance of the Brotherhood of Man leads to selfishness
Because all are brothers, men should help each other
	Example 2: The good man and the angel
If we love God, we will be kind to our brothers

Conclusion: When we understand, God's Kingdom will come to earth
