It was a most scholarly and advanced discourse contrasting the episcopal Church with the protestant and the roman Church. Taking a Survey of christianity he found that it presents itself in the three great aspects of protestantism anglicanism and romanism. Dwelling upon the High Faith in the Mission of the Church which is essential among her followers he dwelt upon some of the difficulties encountered. In a sense the a a episcopal Church is a nameless Church. There is no one of the several names by which it is known among others which satisfies its members or which truly represents its character. The Legal title a protestant episcopal testifies to but a fragment of its history and but a portion of the truth for which it stands. The shortened form a a episcopal is hut slovenly vulgar and ignorant Slang. The a american Catholic a the a american Church a terms often used Are More adequate. They Are sure however to be abused and ridiculed by those unfriendly who would interpret a a Catholic to suit themselves. As a fair historical statement the episcopal Church he said is the ancient and original Church of the English speaking people and nations of Anglo axe it a blood and tradition. What she is believed to be in character is an integral part of the great whole which tin words of the Creed Are called tin one holy Catholic apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ on Earth and among men for the salvation and the perpetuation of his holy reign in their hearts the knowledge of his Power and teaching the transmission of his authority Power and Grace. It is a fact capable of almost mathematical demonstration that the lines for future Christian Unity drawn from All existing sections converge and intersect exactly on the position of the anglican Church. It is therefore the one possible strategical position for ultimate Christian Unity. Protestantism is divided in itself is at heart and in spirit in its present attitude in opposition to the claim the teaching tin heritage of historic christianity. Romanism outline other hand in he literature her mind and in her official pronouncement pays the anglican Church the tribute of constant exaggerated and vindictive attack while anglicanism Lias Ever held out to protestantism and romanism alike a Friendly hand which each has roughly pushed aside. The evening session of the Archdeaconry was set apart for missionary work. The Archdeacon led off with some very remarks on the subject of meals asserting that we Are All idealists to some extent. Having ideals we Are All obliged to sacrifice something to attain to them. God is always on the Side of the Man who is persevering and self sacrificing the Church has an Ideal in the spread of the gospel and every missionary must be an in a. A list and his Success will be measure. D by the amount of his person ver Auoe and self sacrifice. A Rev. N. T. Houser of Blossburg followed in the same vein. A to the Christian the question is not so much whether we do right As whether our motives arc rights whether our hearts Are right. Scrutinize your Moti ves therefore to see whether they Are such As god would approve. We rail do a great Deal of work which is called Charity and yet is not Charity. We May give away our earthly substance. Clothe the naked feed the hungry and yet fail to please god while if we give Jis Little As a drop of cold water in the name of our lord we shall not fail of our Reward. Bishop Talbot was next introduced by the Archdeacon who paid him a Nice tribute by describing him As a Matt of a High ideals. A the Bishop dwelt upon the pleasure he la Elt in meeting with the clergy of this Archdeaconry which he described a the smallest of the four in the continued on Page 4.
