A CHURCH paper asks, ”Should a church run a bowling-alley?” Why should any church want to run a bowling-alley? or, indeed, any other species of so-called amusement? A church is supposed to be Christian; and to the Christian, time is too precious an element to allow the spending of it in any such way. The Christian who does not see it so, may know that he has not yet found the true principle and life of Christianity. He who possesses Christian joy has something so far superior to “amusements” that they never come into consideration.
