Sargent, dean of the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation, Garden City, told the delegates to the fourth annual luncheon of the New York Protestant Teachers Association, that such cooperation does more than, anything else to draw the churches of all creeds closer together and to develop a new faith in one another.
