Comfort In The Church – 1918

At the end of an article telling of the proposed plans to build the new Evangelical-Lutheran Church building…

“The church people could better impress the people who assemble in the churches on Sunday and at times through the week if they would adopt a better method of caring for the comfort of their audience.  No one likes to go the church or an entertainment if the room is not comfortable, no matter whether it is caused by being poorly lighted, poorly ventelated, or poorly heated.  A lazy janitor can do more to retard the good work than a half dozen workers can overcome.  A little horse sense should be used by the man who has charge of this class of work.”
