This is from the bound collection—“bundle #5”—that includes sermons from January 2, 1910 to January 15, 1911.

A brief retelling of the last supper and Jesus' personal struggle in the Garden of Gethsemane. This is a moment Davis revisits repeatedly throughout his life, stating it as a "sublime moment in the life of a man, sublime moment in the history of humanity." Davis is concerned that the conventional ceremony, "the Lord's Supper," does not do justice to the power of that moment in history.
