many friends, a secure position and a considerable amount
of money. The Carpenter Whose name was Jesus, came to
the toll house and going straight to Levi, said to him,
"Follow me". Without even considering what he was
leaving behind, Levi rose up, left all, and became one of
"Levi," said Canon Lawrence, "had answered the call
of God just as so many men down through the ages have.
without considering for a moment what they had left be-
hind, what fun they were giving up or how much money
they were losing by taking the job of a minister of God
rather than a more profitable job."
It was for this reason, said the Chaplain, that Levi
later became known as St. Matthew.
.On Finding Happiness
On Sunday, October first, the Harvest Festival, the
Rev. F. H. Brewin, formerly the rector of St. Simon's
Church, Toronto, spoke to the School in Chapel.
Mr. Brewin chose as his text the 13th. verse of the 6th,
chapter of the first book of Samuel, "And they of Beth-
She-mesh were reaping their wheat in the valley and they
lifted up their eyes and saw the ark and rejoiced to see it."
In order that we might more fully understand the con-
clusions which he later drew from this text, Mr. Brewin
told us briefly the story which leads up to it. The story
begins with the defeat of the Israelites by the Philistines.
The Israelites decided to take the ark with them in their
next battle in the hope that it would bring them victory.
However, the Philistines won the battle and captured the
ark too. But possession of the ark brought bad luck to
the Philistines. The people of every city to which the ark
was taken caught the plague. Finally, the Philistines
decided to return the ark to the Israelites. They sent it
back to the land of Israel on a new cart drawn by two
cows. This was the moment when the people of Beth-

The Call of God
On Sunday evening, September 24, our new Chaplain,
Canon Lawrence, gave his iirst address in chapel. He
chose for his text, Luke 6 v. 28: "And he left all, rose up,
and followed Him". The setting was laid in Capernaum
through which all the caravans had to pass in order to go
through the customs. This was a favourite meeting place
of the townspeople, as in those days there was no means
of obtaining news other than by word of mouth.
As there were no wars in any part of the world at
that time to hold the attention of the people, they were
forced to talk of matters of local interest. One such bit
of gossip concerned a carpenter from Nazareth who had
come to Capernaum and had performed many deeds of
healing the sick and teaching a doctrine which pleased the
people but annoyed the local authorities.
This piece of gossip also concerned the local ta:c-col-
lector who, as tax-collector, should have been considered a
social outcast. Levi, however, was very happy, he had

Shemesh saw the ark and were so glad that it had been
Mr. Brewin pointed out that we, too, often forget God
during the summer, but the joy -of rediscovering God is
like the joy of the people of Beth-Shemesh when they saw
the ark returning. He told us that we need God to guide
our strength and our ambitions and most of all that we
need His mercy. Finally, he said that in the harvests we
could really see God on earth, and if we would look at the
harvest and see God coming back into our lives, we would
again be truly happy. '
The Test of Character
On Sunday, October 8, Canon Lawrence used the
second verse of the twenty-third chapter of the second
book of Samuel as his text. "David, though standing alone
against the Philistines, overthrew the enemy host". Most
of his assistants had fled, but David knew that more was
at stake than just the battle, so he remained and saved the
community. Sometimes, the Chaplain explained, they who
stand alone arescoffed at, but the only ones who retain
their best possessions, are those who defend them. Jesus
knew that nothing but persecution would fall on his shoul-
ders, that his friends would forsake him, and that the
masses would hold him in contempt, but Jesus stood firm.
Canon Lawrence went on to say that sometimes a
disagreeable situation must be faced, even though one is
certain of the right way, in such a case extra courage is
needed. One must attempt to emulate the men of wit, in
order to win the crown. Even though a good deed may
go unnoticed, it is always worthwhile to stand up for what
is right. Character is tested and proved when a man must
stay and fight and not run away. To conclude his sermon,
the Chaplain explained that the example of others who
have fought the masses and won keeps one fighting
against any adversary.
