Rev. Granville H. Sherwood Repeats
Able Discourse at Trinity
Rev. Granville H. Sherwood at the
10:43 morning service at Trinity
church yesterday, r-p'att-d the conven
tiou sermon which he deliver
(I at the lipiscoital diocesan
syn.Ml at (lah-shurK last week. Tin
s--riii.n, an ahle anl thoughtful one,
dealt with the "('lea vase I J. t ween th
("iTKy and the Laity." and was inspir
d by rcnt agitation of this Riibjee:
iu a church iiiiimt. Rev. Sherwood
took hi text from Mathew, 1S:2.
"Vh re two or three arc gathered to
K'thtr in my name, tlnre am I in th
mid: of them." He attributed tut
cleavage to seir.shiuss and in rhetor
ical qutMkms jointed out the errors of
the cl rgy. and of the laitv. In open
itiK his discussion, the rector fpo!;e ol
ifte suri-riies and shocks of a Christian
life. "The more a man tries to be a
Christian, the more he finds how far he
is from Christ's ideal." faid Mr. Sher
wood, and continuing, he added, "At
the nd of his life he fetls no nearer
erfetlon than at the beginning. Of
course he Is. but all his life he has
Mirmounfed one temptation only to be
confronted with anothtr. and has at
tended to one duty, only to have an
other awaiting him."

us from out narrow lives to an appre
ciation of the opportunities before us
"These shocks, which are nothing but
clearer revelations of God and our
duty, are directed as a rebuke to our
selfishness, as if that were the one
great hindrance to our spiritual ad
vance." he said.
He held that selfiishness seems to be
the seeding from which grow graft
luxury, drink, and all of the catalog of
sins. He pointed out that the most
precious promises, as well as the de
nunciations of Christ, are aimed as a
rebuke to selfishness.

Referring to his text, he said that
the gathering of two or three together
Is a prevention of selfishness, and sug
gested that perhaps the statement in
the text was a recognition that a man's
devotion would be degenerated by self

Speaking further ef the cleavage be
tween the c'.crgy and the laity he said.
"It will not come out right unless the
realizarioa of the conditions shock
hi.th clergy and laity out of selfishness,
and gives a better conception of the
church, and the obligation of the mem
bers." The conditions should be a
challenge to the church o do away
with selfishness, and party spirit. "We
speak of divided Christendom." said
the rector, "as though we are strictly
guiltless, while every time a religious
movement is started outside of the
church it means simply that the church
could have started the movement."
"If we would make the church the
power on earth that it should be. we
must seize the spiritual opportunities,
lest in indifference and neglect we
drive Christ from our midst.

C. Blakslee Memorial Address
by Rev. J. B. Rutter.
At the Y. M. C. A. yesterday after
noon a memorial service was held in
honor of the late Sir (Jeorge Williams,
founder of the Y. M. C. A., whose death
occurred recently in London. The
meeting was one of unusual interest,
with the largest attendance in months.
One interesting feature of the service
was the iersonal reminiscences of Sir
George Williams given by G. C. Blaks
lee. who in 1S91 met the eminent En
glishman in London. Mr. Blakslee had
the pleasure of dining with Mr. Wil
liams in the little room over his place
of business, where the first organiza
tion of the Y. M. C. A. took place. This
room, while not the room in which the
flrst meeting was held, was the one in
which the first organization was per
fected. Mr. Blakslee recalled the as
sociation founder as a man of medium
height, slender, and having a kindly ap
pearance. He dressed very carefully
at all times. He had fhe air of a stu
dent, rather than that of a business
man. On the occasion on which Mr.
Blakslee met him, he talked very lit
tle but asked many questions, largely
about the association work. "He im
pressed me as a man of deep spirit
uality, and of great belief in prayer.
On association plans he was very con
servative in his discussion," said Mr.
The address of the afternoon was de
livered by Rev. J. B. Rutter, pastor of
;he Spencer Memorial church, who
spoke of "The Founde-r of the Y. M. C.
A." In his introduction Mr. Rutter
quote'd the very much abridged, but
true, history of mankind: "They res
pired; they aspired; they perspired;
they expired." Speaking of the rea
sons why some men leave behind a
glow from their lives, he said it was
because they at some time were imbued
with the Idea of living a life of un
selfish service to their fellowmen. He
mentioned Abraham. Moses and David,
and of later times Luther. Wesley, Gen.
Booth, and Sir George Williams as men
who lived for others.
True success was not to be measured.
he held, by such men as Alexander,
Caesar, or Napoleon, who, though they
accomplished great things, did not seek
for, or do, the best. "That man is
successful who does the most under
his environment for those about him,
and by this rule Sir George Williams
was a truly successful man."
He spoke of the association which.
from its small beginning June C, 1844,
has become such a tremendous agency.
"When we consider what the Y. M. C.
A. stands for, it is no wonder that it
has gained the power it has," said the
The boys' meeting was addressed by
Henry Voss, on the subject. "The Ele
ments of Courage." He applied cour
age to the every day life of the boy,
and made a very helpful address to
the members of the B. G. M. club.
