In the course of his remarks the reverend speaker said: "We celebrate today the feast of the nativity of the Son of God who became man for our salvation. It Is therefore, and should be, a day of great rejoicing. From this point we might stop and take a' backward glance at the year that has passed. As a congregation we have made some worldly progress. This is apparent. I trust that we have also made some spiritual progress. Worldly progress can be estimated by worldly values. If we have made any spiritual progress we have drawn closer to God and this progress can only be measured by the value each one of us places on salvation. "There Is one matter in which we should take pride, and that Is thtit in our own midst we have young men and young women who cpi interpret classical classical music in such a skillful 4iid pleasing pleasing manner as you have witnessed In the very difficult mass that they rendered rendered at today's service. Our choir is a credit to St. John's church, and it If a good sign of spiritual progress when so many young men and wonvn d - vote their splendid talents to God's service." service." ST.
