The familiar command- ment in 1 Thes. 5. 17, "Pray without ceasing," was the text of a sermon preached at Trinity morning service last Sunday by the Rev. J. Griffith Jones, M.A., Barry. He explained that the spiritual injunction embodied in the text meant that one's whole life should be lived in a spirit of prayer. Prayer was the sincere desire of the heart, uttered or unexpressed. ENTERTAINING THE WOUNDED. —Mr. and Mrs. Jackson, Seaton Carew, entertained the wounded soldiers from the local Red Cross Hospital to tea on Tuesday at their gardens at Glanant Meadows.

In the morning a very stirring sermon was preached by the Rev. A. W. Wardle, Swansea. The afternoon service took the form of an open Brotherhood meet- ing, at which the Rev. Ernest Smith presided, and Mr. Wardle delivered an appropriate address. In the evening the Rev. A. W. Wardle preached from Luke 18. 18, on the words of the rich young ruler, "What shall I do to inherit eternal life," which, observed the preacher, if translated into the language of modern times, would read, "What shall I do to be a man?" The Master, said he, mentioned some of the elements that constituted true manhood. To be religious did not mean to subscribe to religious creeds. One might subscribe to every credal tenet and not possess a grain of religion or even humanity. We might keep all the ten command- ments. and be considered very decent, respectable people, and yet not be men or women in the true sense of the words. The rich young ruler possessed all the amiable virtues but not the heroic ones. Many a one had given his life and all that'was dear to him, in the present war, for an ideal, although he might not have been in private life what this Spung man was. The religion of Jesus Christ was heroism all round.^ There would be no more nambv-pambyism in religion-- was heroism all round. There would be v no more nambv-pambyism in religion-- no more glory songs. Henceforth it would not be "glory for me but self- sacrifice.—Mr. J. Ruston conducted the choir, and Mr. Lionel Langley was oi-g.,inist.-On Monday evening the Rev. A. W. Wardle delivered a most eloquent and instructive address on "Diamonds from the Depths." Mr. D. Hannah, J.P., Penarth, presided.
