OANONVVATKINS JONES NEW DIGNITY FOR POPULAR SWANSEA VICAR. The Bishop of St. David's has ap- pointed the Rev. J. H. Watkins Jones, vicar of Christ Church, Swansea, to a prebendal stall in St. David's Cathedral. As a tribute to the exceptional qualifica- tions and earnest work of the vicar of Christ Church, nothing could be more pleasing to Swansea Church folk. Mr. Jones's many spheres of activit,y-besideG [Photo by A. & G. Taylor, Swansea, j the important and onerous one of organ- isafion and extension in his own parish— such as his work as chaplain of Swansea Gaol and his valuable aid to the military as chaplain of the 6th Welsh, and his stout championship of the Church gener- ally. have marked him as one of those motive powers in Welsh Church li 'e which have saved that Church at critical! junctures in her recem history. A Necessary Reminder. The troops stationed in Swansea at- tended Divine service at St. Mary's Parish Church on Sunday morninc. The men, accompanied b.v their ofifcers | and tie band, nearly filled the central aisle of the building. The service alto- gether was an inspiring the hymns and lessons being particularly appro priate to the occasion. Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas read the lessons, and the sermon was preacned hy the chaplain, tP" Rev. Canon J. H. Watkins Jones, who took for his text He endured, as seeing Hiili who is invisible" (Hebrews xi, r~). Addressing ins remarks especially to tl,i- men. Canon Watkins JaDe. re- mix, ded them of the words of Captain Haggard, when he svid, "Stick it, the Welsh." The Welsh people needed that little reminder. Welshmen woi-e some- cimes im-xViUors and started a job with a rush (lld th-en after a while their great anxiety and enthusiasm began toj wane, and they required some little message like that—" Stick it. Welsh: go oil; don't give up." It was just what thev needed when they were getting a little weary in th-, middle of this great war. He reminded them how Moses endured, as seeing tfim who is invisible. The urize of vie tor v everywhere was for sticking at it. That ration was going to win that could en- dure hardness and he believed the prize oi Nicto'y would be to the British nation. There were two ideas of life, the. :"tive life and the contemplative life. Speaking of the latter, the Treacher said they were not going to see I Angels at Mons; they would see some- thing bette" than that—he referred to the invisible God. His message to them that morning was "Figlit the good fight of faith, endure, and don't turn back." They needed the blending to- gether of the active and contemplative life, to realise the power they would have through Jesus Christ and the vision of th) eternal invisible God. That was what would enable them to fight, and. if need be, would enable them to die.
