(October, 1896.) 0UR minds are full of Anniversary thoughts. Such a blessed time ! It shall be remembered as long as we live. On Sunday and Monday, the tide of grace ran high, and the services were of rare power. Surely such a season will bring forth good results. Our work is bound to receive a blessing, a virtue, a swing forward, an impulse of life, which only the Holy Spirit can give. He was with us. Of that there can be no doubt. And He will develop the beginning of blessing into an unfolding of eternal good. ''V" The Sunday Morning Prayer Meeting was a happy hour indeed. In spite of the very unfavourable weather a goodly number came together. Mr. Reynolds con¬ ducted the meeting. We sang hymns of praise, and lifted up our voices in a Spirit-blended unison of wor¬ ship and gratitude. We made truly a joyful noise. Several brethren, warm of heart, with coal-purged lips, engaged in prayer. Mr. Reynolds delivered a very beautiful address, full of pathos, and point, and power. The hour of prayer was at an end far too soon. The Morning Service was one of rich gladness. We missed sorely our beloved Precentor, who was absent through illness; but the singing was nevertheless hearty and praiseful. The attendance was excellent. The subject of the sermon was, " The love of God in the gift of the Son," from John iii. 16. The preacher placed three great conjunctions before us. First, the world and God ; second, God and the Son ; third, the Son and the world. Along this circuit of grace we were led, and we saw and heard and felt great things. The ineffable love, the wondrous gift, the saving faith —these were the three points of the sermon. May great blessing follow the delivery of it. In the Afternoon Service, we had the great pleasure of hearing Mr. Williams, of Ebenezer, preach. His text was Phil. ii. 12, 13. With much loving exhorta¬ tion, he drew from these verses most timely lessons, and made them speak urgent messages to our hearts. As we listened, we felt that we ought to hear Mr. Williams oftener in Havelock Street pulpit. We were all expecting big things in the Evening Service, and we were not disappointed. Havelock Street Chapel was as full as it could well be, and the Electric Light, in use for the first time, worked splendidly. Our Precentor was fortunately with us, and the singing without exaggeration was magnificent. Dear old Miles Lane was sung with tremendous power, and the anthem was capitally rendered. The subject of the sermon was, "The sure coming of Christ's king¬ dom," from Mat. vi. 10. At the close of the Evening Service, the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was administered, and thus ended a memorable day. Beginning at ten in the morning, we closed at nine in the evening. And yet we were not weary ! The tabernacle of the Lord of hosts was very amiable. The multitude that kept holyday was very, very joyous. The day was greatly blessed.
