At the services in Appleton Chapel last night, Rev. Lyman Abbott, D.D., h.'90, preached from the text, "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."
Dr. Abbott said that no man can walk in the steps of another and that we cannot do as Christ did, nor is it necessary. We should, however, try to have the spirit and principles that he had and carry them out according to our own time and place. A man can get only a faint reflection of Christ's character, but he must use this small knowledge to mould his own life. Christ was not an ecclesiastic, not a theologian, but a simple lover of men who tried to give them happiness. We must remember that happiness is character, what a man is, not what he has. A young man on the threshold of life must try to find out what his mission is and then devote himself to making the world better and happier.
