Earl Davis gave two sermons at the Concord New Hampshire Unitarian Church before taking his position there. One was on Sunday October 28, 1923, and then a week later on Sunday November 4, 1923. One of the supplementary files you can download here is the Church flyer for October 1923. His name is featured on page 2.

This is a short sermon outline, and perhaps a job talk for the Concord ministry. With hundreds of thousands of years of evolution behind us, "saturated with spiritual essence", we carry forward. Davis asks "What shall I do to give life meaning? To make it worthwhile?"

The primary downloadable document contains the original document followed by the transcription. The bottom of each item page also features the primary document as an embedded pdf for browsing.
