With reference to this theme, the rector says: "The world, .as it Others about the manger, is a child's world. What is it like? Is It a world of fairies or of fellowship?

The accumulation o. years Is bound to bring disillusionment, and In the process, God Is driven far from life. Wo are tempted to try all sorts of expedients to re-establlHh contact with the divine. The Gospel of St. John goes deeper. It declares that humanity has In It something of the divine. God and man are not divorced. The universe does not thwart our best hopes.
