We all agree that our visits of patients in hospitals are frequently not so productive as we desire, either because other patients make such, visits difficult or, at times, because of expected ridicule on the part of other patients or visitors, we are too timid in the confession or profession of our faith. But we must not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and therefore should most cheerfully and boldly perform our pastoral duty. Such bold presentation of sacred truths of sin and grace, of admonition and of comfort, will strengthen the patient we ore visiting and will have a wholesome effect on other patients that listen to what is being said. Open ridicule and antagonism will in most instances soon be silenced.
