This is from the bound collection—“bundle #4”—that includes sermons from February 14, 1909 to December 26, 1909.

The sermon presents two principles of the modern world. The first is the integrity of the universe. The second principle is growth. The sermon closes with a passage from William James' A Pluralistic Universe, emphasizing the power of the will to believe. Davis ends the following week's sermon, "What To Do", with the paraphrasing of this same quote as well as discussion regarding these two great principles.
