VOLUME 11. NUMBER 12. BALTIMORF. MD APRIL 23 1892. CHURCH CALENDAR FOR APRIL- 24. Ist S. (Low) aft. Easter. 25. S. Mark. NEGLECT OF PUBLIC WORSHIP. The neglect of public worship is sin. It is unbelief, as well as disobedience. Which is worse, a man who conscientiously disbelieves in the existence of God, or one who, believing in God deliberately neglects His commands? The difference is just that between an open enemy and an enemy in the disguise of a friend and servant. But you say, "Is it sin?" Yes, if God's word is true. If we do not believe that, then the argument is ended, but if we do, then "the Lord is with you, while ye be with Him; and if ye seek Him, He will be found of you; but if YE FORSAKE HIM, He WILL FORSAKE you." You say, 1 after awhile, when I feel better, when all things work along smoothly, and when I am not so worried and bothered as I am now, I will pay more attention to my religious duties, and go to church regularly.' Will you? God calls you now. If you do not ...

GKmre ft Reros. ST. AUGUSTINE'S SCHOOL, RALEIGH, N. U. St. Augustine's School, founded in 1867, has ever since been carrying out its object, the training of teachers for the colored race, and of colored clergymen for the Protestant Episcopal Church. Probably 400 or 500 teachers and twenty clergymen have been trained here. Three clergymen are in its faculty, and the students, many of whom have never before heard the service of the Church, are constantly under the influence of the daily Morning and Evening Prayer and 'Other services of the Church. The school has been so full during the last year that we have been obliged to use the temporary chapel for school purposes. There is still ■some room in the young men's building, but the girls' building has been greatly crowded and now there is need of enlargement. Some effort, as much as our means would allow, has been made to begin industrial training. The young men have always taken care of the grounds and rendered assistance in the garde...

Her services are all of a responsive character, in which there is nearly as much to be said by the congregation as by the minister. For the latter to pray alone, and the former to remain silent, except during Collects, and a few other prayers, is quite contrary to the rule and intention of the Prayer Book; and the habit is, in fact, a comparatively modern innovation borrowed from Dissenters, among whom the congregation are not ordinarily required to open their lips except when they are singing hymns. This co-operation of the laity with the clergy in Divine Worship is founded on the Scripture doctrine that al...

GRurefi Reins. TENNESSEE. Hoffman Hall. Dear Mb. Editor:—Your readers may be interested to know something of the progress of our work in Tennessee as it appeared to the Archdeacon on some recent visitations. Soon after the Ordinations which took place in Hannington Chapel on the Third Sunday in Lent as noticed in your columns, I started for West Tennessee. Already East Tennessee had been visited where .•as the Advocate recently said there ;are fine opportunities for establishing work at Chattanooga, Knoxville and perhaps also at Cleveland if the "wherewithal" could be found. However I have received notice that the Rev. Mr. Wilson has been assigned to Tennessee for six months (from July Ist) especially in _ answer to my appeal for these points and a man like Mr. Wilson coming into any community means the making up for a great many deficiencies. As I am not expected to go further East than the Tennessee mountains until all be well I meet with you all at the Conference in Baltimore I s...

PATHWAYS TO OUR CHURCH,- The Decay of Prejudices.— One of our clergymen in quest of choristers had a conversation with the mother of a boy who had been recommended as the possessor of a fair voice. "I'm quite willing to have my boy study music," she said, "and I want him to grow up and be a good man; but if I let you have him for your choir he may become an Episcopalian—and I could not endure that!" She was unable to tell what horrible thing was implied in becoming an Episcopalian, but she had heard so much against this Church that her boy's possible membership in it meant something that would grieve her exceedingly. She had then not quite so much light as the man who remarked of one of his neighbors that "he seemed to be a Christian, although he was an Episcopalian." It is interesting to trace up these o...

The Church itself, however, in its corporate capacity and in its working, has always aimed to reached all sorts and condition of men. Its congregations are now more nearly representative of a population of a place than any other congregation, inasmuch as in them are found some people of every class and grade.. Instead of reaching but one class in a place it reaches members of every grade, so that in an ordinary Episcopal congregation, as we find it gathered in any of our towns or cities, there will be seen persons of the most dissimilar stations, rich and poor, learned and ignorant. Far from being a Church of a class, it is the Church of all classes, and is steadily growing to be The People's Church. The main prejudice against it all along has risen from the notion that it is too much like the Roman Catholic Church...
