For  since ��the fathers  fell v  asleep, all' things cpritiriue as they  were from the beginning of the  creation.   For this they willingly ,  are ignorant of, that by the word  of God the heavens were of old,  and the earth standing out of the i  water and-in the water: -Where- j  by the world that then was;be- |  ing overflowed with water, perr $  ished:   But the heavens. and: the j  earth, -which.* are   nowy  by ' itheJl  same word are kept in store, re*f]  served unto fire against the day^  of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  But, beloved, be not  ignorant of this one thing, thati  one  day is with the Lord as d{j  thousand years, arid a thousand  years as one day. ^ The Lord d<&,  not slack concerning his..'promise  as some men courit slackness; bulj  is long suffering to uswjard; riot  willing- that �����: any should perish'  but that all should come to re|  pentance.���2�� Peter 3:  1-9; >  ill  $215  with  Reservoir  !'������ i  ,  Watch for the  Opening of Our  NEW FURNITURE  STORE  10% DISCOUNT  TO VETERANS  Commonwealth Kettae . 4.95  CASCO  CHAIR  9.45  ���  CASCO  FOLDING  CHAIR  14.75  BABY CARREAGES  Special ..'./;' . v. 34.50  4-pce.

"BUY MEAT WITH  CONFIDENCE"  H. KENNETT, Butcher ��� Gibsons, B.C.  Next door to Bank of Montreal  AS IF THE gigantic tasks facing the gallant little band  which operates the Columbia  Coast Mission, an effort of the  Church of England in Canada,  were not enough, there is the  ever-present problem of carrying on financially. Rev. Heber  Greene stoutly denies, that any  of the four Mission ships will  quit. "Somehow they will go  on," he says, confident that donations from friends, not necessarily of this particular sect for  their work is humanity-wide,  circumscribed only by the needs  of those they meet.  In a stirring appeal for a  continuance of the people's interest in,2B."C. coastal welfare,  Rev. Greene pointed -out that  closing of the Rock Bay hospital (about 80 miles;7north of  Powell River) and the transfer  of the Alert Bay hospital to another society does not mean the  mission is w i t h d r a w i n g.  "There's life in the old dog  yet!" shouts the jovial gentleman of the cloth.  "We've four mission ships to  care for; St. Mary's Hospital at  Pender Harbour (about 40  miles south of Powell River);  as well as the Cottages for Aged  Folk, also at the Harbour. ���  "I offer the following facts  for your consideration, and then  you car* judge for yourself  whether or hot we have a real  job to carry on with, and for  the ten thousand folks bur Ships  and hospitals and ourselves  serve:  "St. Mary's carries on as one  of our responsibilities and, we  see a mighty useful year's work  ahead of us. As superintendent, I will do all I can to make  the .hospital function well and  Mi*. McColl, the new hospital  secretary, is just as eager to  make a go pt it as I, arid between  us% all, we should see/real .pro^  gress this year. VWith the growing population in these parts, a  population that probably numbers 2,000 within reasonable  distance of the hospital, and another two to three thousand  down Gibsons way that look to  us yet as their hospital if they  can't get into Vancouver hospitals, there is a big job on our  hands. '  "All you need to do to convince yourself of the absolute  necessity of a hospital here is  to come in to the hospital when  it is full of patients and ask  them where they all come from.  Jervis Inlet, Sechelt Inlet, Las-  queti Island, Texaua Island,  Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt, and occasionally Gibsons, over 50  miles away by a government  highway. No doubt there'll be  a hospital built at Gibsons. All  power to the project as the  population down there is growing by leaps and bounds, and  they should have a hospital  similar-to burs' to- meet their  medical needs. There's room  for both hospitals and we wish  them luck. Well, that's one big  job still on our hands ��� St.  Mary's -Hospital, Pender Harbour. ,  HOME FOR AGED  "And the. Aged Folks' Guest  Houses just around the -point  from the hospital have rin them  the seed of a plan that can be  enlarged indefinitely as funds 1  permit. I am -giving serious  thought to the erection of a central community house into  which those, of our guests now  carrying on .under .their own..  steam could move, and at long  last give up-housekeeping.,  . "This would .save them the  grief of trying to get accommodation in the larger provincial institutions in the cities.  But it would involve a^ very  substantial capital outlay. Also |  the employment ��of a housekeeper who would be a cook  and a j anitor. Before committing myself to such a plan, I  would have to be sure of an  initial outlay of $10,000 for the  building and equipment, and  then have fundsv to pay what  staff the place would require.  But there are so few institutions  for the aged, that the project  has a very strong appeal. Each  guestv would have his or her  own oedroom, and there would  be a common sitting-rdbm and  a common dining-room. I have  in mind Accommodation for  perhaps ten single guests. The  present project of suites for  single folk or couples is working nicely but one or two- are  -now near the point��� ivhere May'  should be free from the labor  of house-keeping.  A BIG JOB AHEAD *  "Then down at this end there  is the work of the mission ship  *Jbhh Antle.' I am her skipper,  and I am keen to reach the day  when I can devote' most of my  time to the challenging job of  ministering to everybody in  this area north of Halfmoon  Bay. That in itself is a big job.  It grows on one as he slowly  builds up a circle of friends in  the inlets and on the islands,  all of whom eventually come  to regard a mission ship as an  importantfstandby ^n; the: vicissitudes of their lives as fishermen, loggers arid settlers. Just  today, I was called in for the  burial of a young man, Allen  Jeffries of Egmont. His whole  family connection were there  and they had come down from  Sechelt Inlet in a fleet of fishing craft, and out in the misery  of a snowstorm, we buried the  young man, in the little cemetery \near Bargain 'Harbour., It  was-a pathetic scene, out typical of these eyents. We'gathered around the casket for a few  moments in a rough tool shed  and to'those huddled together  in that rough shed, the burial  service had as great meaning  and comfort as any similar service in the most . beautiful of  churches. Sorrow binds us together all ���'over this troubled  world. One of the men asked  me afterwards if I would come  and baptize his two children at  Egmont. After the brief com^  mittal; some of us went to the  Warnock's nearby and^ Mrs.  Warnock kindly warmed us  with a fine cup of tea.  SPIRIT OF RELIGION  "Almost at once the whole  party set out for their far-away .  homes in their gas-boats, but ,  not without ' many a kindly  greeting and words of gratitude  for my simple but heartfelt  service.. Not^ long ago these  very people gathered in the Egmont school for a wonderful  Christmas party where it was  my privilege to bring to their  children and to them as -the  parents a touch of the beauty  and joy that surrounds"' the  Christmas festival. We had a  hilarious eveniiig ending in a J  dance to music that would  hardly stand being broadcast,  but that evening's, program, in  addition to a brief school concert, had been enriched by the  telling' of the Good News  thrcugh the .medium of sacred  art and the interweaving of the  gospel narratives. One's, ministry in this part of the world  (and that same applies to that  of my confreres Rollo Boas and  my brother Heber and the  Christmases) is such a blending  of the social and the evangelistic that the people come to regard religion as something inextricably woven into their  daily life. We "get over" to  bur flock what in the set order  of church life in a city is difficult-���that all life, not just those,  moments you spend amid the  beauty of a church, is part of  the Divine order;v I hope that  as the years roll by I may help  fishermen or loggers feel that  aboard their little craft or out  ���;���. oil the slope of a mpuhtain th^y  are Sons of God and that in^the  ruggedness < of their task* they  are partners with the Son of  Man, and that He shares' witli  ^ them all that falls to them day  '��� by day...
