Excerpt from The Christian Consciousness, Its Elements and Expression: A Discourse Delivered at the Installation of J. K. Karcher as Pastor of the Spring Garden Unitarian Church, October 5, 1859
Associations for the prevention of pauperism and crime, the abolition of Slavery, the elevation of woman, and the destruction of the demon of the still. It has its apostles and prophets in a large company of men and women, who proclaim with original force and with fresh application to the sins of the time the eternal principles of the Christian Law. It has saints in a whole sisterhood of Florence Nightingales; in a whole brotherhood of Clarksons. It has its temples in a crowd of asylums, hospitals, and homes for the friend less. It has its creed, the Soul's divine Sonship, preached in the dark places where turpitude skulks and cowers, whispered in guilty prisons and doomed cells, thundered in legislative halls, and breathed into the ears of the solitary and the obscure.
