Excerpt from Quiet Talks on Power

A few weeks later, in Kansas City visiting the medical and dental schools, I recall distinctly stand ing one morning in a disordered room - shavings on the floor, desks disarranged - the institution just moving into new quarters, and not yet settled. I was discussing With a member of the faculty, the dean I think, about how many the room would hold, how soon it would be ready, and SO ou - just a busi ness talk, nothing more - when he turned to me rather abruptly, looking me full in the face, and said with quiet deliberation: I'm a member of church; I think I am a deacon in our church running his hand through his hair meditatively, as though to refresh his memory - but I am not very much of a christian, Sir. The smile that started to come to my face at the Odd frankness Of his remark was completely chased away by the distinct touch of pathos in both face and voice that seemed to Speak Of a hungry, unsatisfied heart within.

Perhaps it was a month or so later, in one of the mining towns down in the zinc belt of southwestern Missouri, I was to speak to a meeting of men. There were probably five or six hundred gathered in a Methodist Church. They were strangers to me. I was in doubt What best to say to them. One dis likes to fire ammunition at people that are absent.
