The sermon at the Presbyterian church Easter was delivered by Rev. Ward F. Boyd of Chicago. At the morning service Mr. Boyd took for his text John 20:17 "And the napkin that was upon His head not lying with the linen clothes, but rolled up in a place by itself." He said the Folded Napkin illustrates the spiritual law of the dignity of the commonplace. Emphasis upon this is greatly needed in our daily life. The napkin is further, the strongest proof to the fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and as such is meant to be a door opening out into a larger faith. The real significance of Easter is seen not only in the resurrection of Christ, but also in the resurrection of Christianity and in a quickened personal faith.
