"When we build let us think that we build forever.  Let it not be for the present delight, nor for present use alone, but let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for.  Let us think as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when (others) will look upon our labor and say, 'see, this is what (they) did for us'!"

Announching "the Corner-Stone Laying" of Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Sunday, September 7th, 1941.
