We have come this morning to honor three eminent servants of the Word for their many years of faithful service in the kingdom of God. Being partakers of their joy, we unite with them in thanking God for the manifold blessings which He has for so many years bestowed upon them and upon their ministries. We also take pleasure in commending them for their faithfulness, congratulating them upon their achievements, and thanking God for the enduring benedictions which have come to our church through their dedicated services. And so the keynote of our celebration is joy - the hallowed spiritual joy which finds its highest expression in praise and thanksgiving to God.
