Public worship is not a matter of taste or choice, it is a duty; to omit it without good caused sin, and when omitted for cause, feel very sure that God will consider the cause a good one. When kept from public worship, increase your private devotions. Be in youi accustomed seat at church before the service begins. Excepting unavoidable accidents or hindrances, it is just as easy to do this as to be in time for the steamer, the cars, or business appointments. When you come to the house of God, employ the time before service in serious meditation, devotional reading, and silent prayer, as a preparation for the act of worship in which you are about to engage. Talking or whispering before, during, or after service is not preparation, is not worship, is not reverence, but is annoyance and wrong to othe...

VOLUME 11. NUMBERS. BALTIMORE, MD MARCH 26 1892. . CHURCH CALENADR FOR MARCH 25. Annunciation B.V.M. 27. 4th. Sunday in Lent. WHY DO YOUR MINISTERS WEAR ROBES? For about the same reason that soldiers wear uniforms and Masons white aprons. It is a badge. The white surplice is neat, simple and uniform. We like them, and surely they are acceptable to God, for upon the only occasion where it pleased Him to regulate the details of earthly worship, He gave express directions about the ministerial garments (Ex. 28: 39: 43). WHY DO YOU PRAY TO GOD OUT OF A BOOK? For precisely the same reason that you praise God out of a book. You would not like to sit still and listen to your minister sing extemporaneous hymns; you wish to join in the hymns audibly. So we wish to join in the prayers audibly. Therefore we have a book. Jesus Christ must approve of it, for He joined in the written prayers of the synagogue and HimSelf gave his disciples a form of prayer—"Our Father which art in Heaven." ARE NOT...

The most efficient leader, if he was not the inventor ofPresbyterianism, was John Knox, a Scottish priest [a.d. 1505—'72]. Although the special doctrine that Episcopal Ordination is unnecessary and wrong is common to all sects of Dissenters, because their very existence depends on a repudiation of its necessity, the English Presbyterians of modern days are a very small religious community,having been almost superseded in their meeting-houses by the Socinians or Unitarians, who deny our Lord's Divine Nature. In the time of the Great Rebellion, Presbyterianism was the established religion of the country, as it is- at the pres...
