Love as the Keynote: The Ole Jerry McAuley Mission

The end sought is to effect their salvation, and the keynote of this service is love.
The Ole Jerry McAuley Mission has been a beacon of hope for destitute alcoholics and addicts since its establishment. In this episode, Philip Ilott Roberts shares the history of the mission, the stories of those who have found recovery through surrender to Christ Jesus, and the current crusade of rescue and reclamation. The mission's objective is to effect the salvation of those who have reached their lowest point, and the keynote of their service is love.
The controversial practice of offering uplifting influences to the men who drift into the mission is met with objections, but Roberts argues that it is necessary to keep close to the springs of tenderness to accomplish anything worthwhile. The mission's workers are not likely to receive the saving grace of adoption, but their role is to provide the necessary environment for salvation to occur. Roberts shares the story of John S.
Hewler, whose life and legacy is a testament to the mission's work and ministry. The mission's past has been lived, its present rests, and its future will be reared through the power of love and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
