“It is hard to realize how swift has been the passage from the very brink of disaster to complete triumph”

Joy mixed with anxiety for the future in Warfield.

There were splendid congregations on November 17th, the Great Day; first of Thanksgiving for Victory and for Truce, which in itself has lifted anxious care from many hearts; but also of Prayer that Truce may be crowned by just and lasting Peace.

It is hard to realize how swift has been the passage from the very brink of disaster to complete triumph; and it is hard also to realize how great is the need of steadiness and good will, lest the fruits of triumph be flung away.
