Misfi E. Hunt, organising secretary for the Order of the Star in tho East for tho South Island, gave an address at Club House yesterday afternoon at the monthly assembly of the Order. The subject of her address was ' One Another.' Miss Hunt 6flid that ii wt> were to recognise the. Master when He came we ahould need to cultivate more strongly tho spirit of love, which would bo the keynote of tho life and teaching of the Master. Lovo should be a living factor in the life of everyone who looked for the coming of the Teacher; what, wo needed was an attitude to the world. Selfishness was foreign to the nature of the Master; wo should learn to put this from us and to understand, and thus sympathise a little more fully with those with whom we came into contact. Many an opportunity of kindness and helpfulness was missed becuuse our thoughts were usually centred round ourselves, and we were blind to the sorrows of others. Wo must learn to forget ourselves in the helping of others. When the Master came there was for each one a great opportunity—the opportunity of entering the path of holiness and becoming one of tho helpers of humanity. The most important of the qualifications asked from those who would enter tho path was love. Wo must, then, learn to love more strongly, sympathise more fully with those around us. Our lives should be full of joy carrying to others a message of joy, the joy oi the thought of the coming of tho Master.
