Life, my dear graduating friends, is a voyage. P'hYS1C31'1Y, llfen 1-Si af V0Y3f-ge.
Your frail bark was conceived in -the precipitous headwaters of an mlanld stream.
Gradual-ly and mysteriou-sly that tiny bark shaped itself into- a more sturdy and
seaworthy vessel, until, finally, comxplete in its marvelouis mechanisms of self-pro-
pulsion and control, it was launched into the placid bay of blrth. N or boasted. vessel
could vie with it in the -effixciency of 'its' 0peraTfi'0H- FCS -engine' 'bleaft I'ef8'l11l9l'1Y, Steadlly-
Radio-controlled by an' Unseen Pilot, your vessel -t-o-uched at the pe-bbledishores and
shaded pools of infancyg it 'passed along the sunny banks of youth until, one day,
you were taken into the 'co-pilotship' of your vessel. Stupendous thought! Upon
yo-u was placed the power of superimgposiing your guidance of -this ves.sel over that of
its Designer and Unseen Pilot. The beat -of its' engine continuing regular and power-
ful, you could' no.se your ship gallon the sh r he th '
g o e w ere e sirens sing, or you could
strike out boldly into the seas of 'helpfu,lness and- 'blessing to mankin-d.
Many, many, my dear friends, have heed-ed the sirens' call, and have be-en ship-
wrecked. But yo-u, I am glad to think, have sensed the ,gravenesgs of the responsi-
bility, and have desired to receiv-e instruction in a Master Pi'lot's School in order
'better to understand and t-o perate this im'arvelou.s ship of yours. You realize that
your vessel, wond-erful and efficient and beautiful' though it be nev rthl
. I . I I I V , v e eess ha.s
an ephemeral existe-nce-it 1S good for only one crossing!-and that there-fore, you
needed to know the Unseen Pirlotfs will more perfectly.
n I hope, my graduating fri-end, that Messiah Bible College, has been for you a
P1lot'fs School. I hope that you 'have better coordinated -the -meechanisms of your
Lship, that you have better learned the technique of sailing, that you have bieceolme
better -acquainted with th U .1 ' ' ' ' '
e nseen Pilots voice and that - ll - tb I h-
with .high courage and confidence. you W1 now rave t e deep
Beware the reefs and shallows. Do not force your e-ngine, -but get from it the
maximum of efficiency and service through lmoderation. Render aid to the disabled
and.g1ve d1rect1on to the lost. Do not relent y-our viggilence and efforts until your
engine functions' no more and you cast anchor in the Harb-or of Eternal Rest,

Launched finally outward, impulsively forward,
Under full mast he realizes at last
That there are shoals and Hoes in the sea.
Leaving the beams of the ship of his dreams,
Allowing the tide its beauty to hide,
In a salvaged raft hte faces the sea.
Ideas are tested, disillusionment arrives
When vanishing dognia by reason is triedg
The saving of remnants, is a struggle for the strong
From the onrushing tide of enveloping wrong.
