Sermon Preached at the Opening of the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church, in Philadelphia, September 5, 1838 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Sermon Preached at the Opening of the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church, in Philadelphia, September 5, 1838 Where shall I begin with my congratulations on this sub jcet? Shall Ispeak of the resemblance in all important points between our church polity and that of primitive and apostolic times? What need is there, seeing that so many public ser mons make mention of it - that so many tracts and volumes trace it out, and that there is but one sentiment among us on the subject? Who but reads in scripture and other books, of the divers orders of ministers in God's ancient church? Who does not meet with thesame in the Christian church, established by our Lord and the Apostles, transmitted to the fathers, and continued in unbroken succession to the present day? In this old path our church has always trodden and found rest therein. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
