Saint Paul's Society.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rev. Henry S. Nash, of the Cambridge Theological School, addressed the Saint Paul's Society last evening. He said that in this season of the Advent we should think about judgment which is inevitably connected in thought with the second coming of Christ. If one could criticise himself dispassionately and clearly, such judgment would be the same as that of the last day of the world. The trouble is that people try to judge themselves and past generations by the standards which they have made for themselves, and which are, accordingly, sure to be misleading. It is not difficult for a man to find fault with the deeds of his ancestors and to blame them, on the ground that every evil thought and action had transmitted its effect to him. But it does not so often happen that this man realizes how careful he should be himself to try to counteract the evil influence he may have inherited and to take good care not to add to the store which he must transmit to future generations.
