This volume is dedicated to the memory of the late Bishop Huntington, and takes its title from a sermon preached in Emmanuel Church, Boston, upon the Occasion of the unveiling of a bust commemorative of the founder of that parish. The other sermons were preached in Grace Church, New York, and deal in about equal proportions with personal religion, present-day theology and Christian civics. It is thought that incidentally the book may be useful to layreaders.

The Faith once delivered unto the Saints
Sectarianism a Dangerous
The limitations of the sectarian spirit may be seen in the effort of The Church
Standard last week to defend its own un
authorized condemnation of a priest by quotations from Dr. Dix and the Rev. Walter Lowrie.
The sermon by Dr. Dix, of which we printed the larger part last week, was entitled, "The Creed: A Full and Sufficient Statement of the Christian Faith." The Standard does not quote from the sermon but from its introduction. In both the sermon and the introduction Dr. Dix enunciates with his usual directness just what he conceives to constitute loyalty to the faith. He nowhere names and passes judgment upon a fellow priest, nor does he attempt to substitute his individual judgment for that of those who have been delegated to represent the Church. That is not his way.
Mr. Lowrie's reply to "The Open Letter on New Testament Problems," which The Standard also prints as "testimony" (like the sermon of Dr. Dix) nowhere deals with a specific case. Both Dr. Dix and Mr. Lowrie deal with general principles. Even if one is a distinguished High Churchman and the other is a Broad Churchman and "one of the few really learned young men in the ministry," they would be powerless to convert inference into direct evidence. But they have not attempted such a task. Doubtless they would say as Bishop Gore said to Mr. Beeby: "I told him that it was, in my judgment, inconsistent with public honor that a man should hold his official position in virtue of constantly saying, 'I believe' such and such propositions, unless he did believe them, and that I could not understand how, if he did believe them, he could write against them." Certainly we can all agree upon a principle so simple. But it is wholly another matter to impose our personal judgment upon another by declaring him guilty of what he does not believe himself guilty and of what he has not been proved guilty. The one reflects the catholic spirit, the other the arbitrariness of sectarianism.
Is the American Church a sect, able arbitrarily to impose doctrine and arbitrarily to deal with its members and with its ministry, or is it a part of the Church catholic, representing the attitude of Christ to humanity? Mr. Lowrie is quoted as a competent and learned witness as to fidelity to ordination vows, and yet he says: "There can be no law in the Church of God. Undoubtedly the Apostles' Creed has been made a law over opinion in the Protestant Episcopal Church. As a Christian I do not feel myself bound by that law, but as
Saturday, February 24, 1906.
an 'Episcopalian' I am bound. I maintain that the law which exacts of me this belief is not a law of the Church of God;
but it plainly is the law of the Protestant Episcopal denomination." And that his position may not be misunderstood he later says: "I feel myself just as much bound by the laws of the Protestant Episcopal Church as I should feel bound if, for example, being a Christian, I were also a member and office-bearer in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and had
promised to conform to the rules of that society so long as I should continue to Occupy my office and receive the emoluments attached to it." Here we have a definite and distinct statement that the Creed is not a law of the Church of God, but of the Protestant Episcopal denomination. Here we have set in contrast the Church of God with no law-anarchy, and the Protestant Episcopal denomination-a sect. But if the Apostles' Creed is not "a law over opinion" in the Church of God, from whence would a Protestant Episcopal denomination derive its authority to impose it upon men? The Odd Fellows Society can arbitrarily do what it wills with its own. We have not been so taught in the Apostolic Church. Individuals may endeavor to convert the Church into a
Protestant Episcopal sect, but the Church in America has never been guilty of the introduction of any such irreverence into her liturgy. Her members are made members of Christ and children of God, and inheritors of the Kingdom of Heaven. They are confirmed as such, and her officers are ordained and consecrated as ministers in the Church of God. She neither baptizes nor ordains Episcopalians. She teaches the Apostles' Creed not upon the authority of a "Protestant Episcopal denomination" but because as the Body of Christ she believes that she received it in trust. She finds no hope for her members to enter into the Resurrection of her Lord and Saviour except through His Incarnation-His Cross and Passion. The Church's mission is Christ's mission. She is not at liberty to impose upon her members or her ministry any other mission than His.
A World-Wide Movement.
It is helpful and stimulating to turn from the petty trials to the great things of life. It is transforming to seek not the condemnation of our fellow-Christians but the salvation of our neighbor. It is inspiring to turn from the service of self to the service of Christ. That is the true following of Him Who alone can convert men and evangelize the world. It is because the International Student Volunteer Convention, which is to be held next
week in Nashville, Tenn., is summoned to follow the purpose of Christ in saving the world that it is drawing representative men from many countries to consult to
gether how they can work most effectively for the coming of Christ's Kingdom.
The very audacity of the enterprise commands attention. Far and above all the criticisms of one another that various bodies of divided Christendom feel justified in making, stands out the aggressive and constructive value of this coming to
gether and consulting for work on a grander scale than any form of sectarianism can undertake, a work that brings with it an inspiration greater than any merely local effort could hope to gain.
It is fortunate for our Communion that this Convention is to be held in the diocese of a bishop who gives to it his wholesouled sympathy and has set forth an authoritative prayer to be used by his clergy for the success of the Convention. Bishop Gailor only a few weeks ago publicly declared that the only salvation for the Church from heresy and all evil things is, and must always be, the vigor of its own vitality. He realizes that a healthy body is the only safeguard against disease, and that vital Christianity is the only saving force from every danger. From the Churchmen of his diocese the Convention is assured of a welcome that will return a redoubled blessing. Not only has Bishop Gailor set forth a prayer and asked the co-operation of his clergy, but he is to speak at one of the greater meetings.
This is the act of a large-hearted, catholic-spirited individual bishop, but it is something more than that. It is typical of a change that is taking place not only in our own Communion but throughout Christendom. No Church dares, and what is infinitely better, no Church desires, longer to stand alone and to endeavor to force the whole world to say its shibboleth and conform to its little mould. Agencies like the Student Volunteer Movement are contributing to this wider and more godlike conception of the Church's mission: A conception larger and wider, but not, for No that, more vague or meaningless. movement has shown more devotion to efficiency in detail or demanded a more reasonable service than the work of the Student Volunteers.
