ilnit the ideas of litieity which re
uilted in tiie Revolution arose
among the Puritans and sprang
from tao Town Meetings of New
England. A careful student of
history will observe that in the
Vestries of Virginia tho principles
of popular government wero fought
out. It was a Churchman Patrick
Henry who made tho telling speech
ending with the words: "Give me
liberty or give me death." It was
a Churchman who was Chaplain of
the first Continental Congress and
another who was the great Commander-in-Chief
ton. Churchmen also were such
men as Franklin, Morris, Jay,
Madison, Lee, the Pinkneys, Ha
milton, the Livingstons and hosts
of other patriots. Three-fourths of
tho signers of the Declaration of
Independence wero Church of Eng
land men. Two-thirds of the men
in the Convention which framed
the Constitution of the United
States were members of the Episco
pal Church. A large number of
the Generals of tho Continental
Army were Churchmen. From
these things and many others
which we could mention wo see
that Churchmen had a large part
in moulding the institutions of the
When the war was over the Church

that lime from the period when Con
stantino hud brought the Church hi to
close relation to the Statu it hau
seemed to be a part of the monarc. -ical
system of government. Bishops
apart from a monurchy were hardly
deemed possible. The clergy of the
Uolonics hud taken the oath of alio

had left America. U the close of the

Constitutional problem to solve than

To this problem the Churchmen sot

the result was a Constitution which
antedates tho Constitution of the
United States and both may be suid
to he tho work of tho sumo set ol
men. Mobcrly in his Brampton Lec
lures has shown thut the Constitution
of tho American Church ensures in
effect a government closely resem
bling that of tho early Church. The
Luity were given a voice in all things
and tho powers of the Bishops were
clearly dehned, so that.wliilo none ol
tho inhoront powers wero'louched,

The lirsi iii&hops of the American
Church were of the older order. They
all seemed to think that the Episco
pal ullice called for little besides
ordaining men to the Ministry. Bishop
White, Pennsylvania, never visited
that part of his Diocese west of the
.Mountains and visited no more ilian
eight or nine parishes a year.

Up to that lime it had been looked
upon as the Church of a few aristo
cratic old families, noiv it began to
realize its purpose and powers and
life. Still during that period as in all
American history, the influence of
the Church was far beyond what its
numbers alone would warrant. I
need but p hit out. that a very large
number of Presidents have been
Churchmen, nearly every Commander
in Chief of the a-my anil usua'ly ad

1 The idea of religion Incorporated
into tho Church system in that, reli
gious life is a birth and growth Tho
idea among the mass of Protectant
Americans was that reliwioii cons sted
of a feeling, and they strove loin luco
by oratory and cauence, a psehycio
convulsion. The holding fast to "the.
truths that religion was not' afeelini?
but a development and growth by
grace, the process going on through
life, drew upon the Church tho lierce
denunciations of sects. The Episcopal
Church had no religion tlioy believed
and said. The teaching of the Church
won out because it.is true, and be
cause true natural, and 'it prevails
today among intelligent people. The
day of tho noisy revival has gone and
few regret it.
Again there prevailed among all
protestnnt denominations until the
Lutherans camo the idea that all
amusements had in tliem the nature
of sin. Even to play ball, says
Washington, Gladden was qu ation
able to me as a boy. To dance was
a mortal sin and to pluy cards was
an ovidence-or a lost soul. The sane
idea of the Church now uenorallv
prevails and people are not afraid
that going to a play will bring dam
nation to the scul. People are coos
tng to maice sins ol things which are
not .-inful in themselves, but leave to
individual consciences decisions on
Again, the Church year with its
rich and helpful teachings was de
nounced as a relic of popery so that
only a few despised Churchmen and
foreigners as they came kept Christ
mas and Easter. Now thn Christian
year by the force of its own fitness
and usefulness is winning and m a de
gree has won the dav.
Again the very word church was
abandoned and the word meeting;
house was substituted for it. It, was
thought that the meeting houso must
be severely plain for the ornamenta
tion of it would bo in the nature of
sin. But the traditions of church
architecture in the Gothic and other
styles held by the church and early
exemplilied by such buildings as old
Trinity won the day again among all
as far at least as the exterior of
churches is concerned aUhojgh it cer
tainly is architecturally false to have
a gottiic exterior and au interior
opera housn style.
As to cljuroh music an organ was
not to bo thought of and great
troubles arose when they were intro
duced and when music books were
first used there vas a great protest
for it was gravely argued that "if we
sing by note wo shall sonn pray by
roto and then p' pery will come."
As to secular music the music of a
violin was a peculiar abomination be
cause I presume it was associated
with di nciug. Secular songs were
sinful and tho rules of a great deno
mihation still condemn them. Such
was tho general attitude of . Amorican
Christianity within the memory of
many living aud it is still the attitude
in many romoto places.
ino lnuuenco oi ino church in
bringing about a more reasonable
spirit has been immense, and while
tho often meaningless linclos of so
called gospel song? are yet in vouuo
in places, vet there is a decided re
action, lhe church all tins time has
gono on her way using her rich
hymology, her services and anthems
being imitated moro and more by all
Christians in the production of an
orderly servico of music and prayer.
Again, the old volumes of contro
versy which once filled the shelves of
ministers are absent or if thcro are
not- read. If you go to tho libraries
of ministers of any denomination you
win be surprised to seo how manv
books ere writen by Churchmen. Fan
rar and Geike, Liddon and Matirico,
Robertson and Brooks and a host of
In fact it is not too much to snv in
thought and practico the thins
which the church held and taudit
have in a mighty way influenced
The church grows rapidly in num
bers because it stands for Apostolic
order, because it stands upon iho old
and seeks to adapt itsolf to the now.
Because it allows liborty of opinion to
individuals in belief and in practico.
Because all things ore dono decently
and in order. Because it has tho in.
comparable Book of Common Prayer
which moro and moro in part at least
so many Christians aro usin.
When I saw David B. Lyman in
Chicago I asked what led him to bo-
come a Churchman, fie said: "When
I left Hilo as a boy I asked my fathor
about tho different denominations.
He said to mo 'David take your Bible
and go where that leadsyou.' When
I was confirmed I wroto that tho
Bible had led me to tako that step
and whilo my father regretted it ho
rould say nothing."
This roally tells the story why the
church has grqwn so rapidly in tho
United States especially in New Eng
land so that vast numbers of the
children of the Puritans aro now
children of the Mother Church of the
Knglish speaking race.
We have mucii for which to thank
God for tin three hundre l years of
English Christianity in the United
States of America. We can serve
our country in no better way thanln
being loval to her and in making her
teachiim and ideals ajtual in our
lives. It wlil bo our privilege to
have our share in tho Thanksgiving
offering of 1907. We here shall as a
Missionary District get a part of that
offering. I believe that it will be a
very large ono and tjiat you will have
your part in it. What 'would have
boen tho outcome if Spain had gono
to Virginia we can hardly imagine,
but in the L'rnviden'ce or God the An
glican Church was planted and we
her sons thank God that sho has had
her part in moulding American iusti
tutions and life and we snail strive to
make tier influence for the salvation
of men and tho moulding of social
order greater the.i over. We may
well ask ourselves us men of old did:
"And now Israel what doth the L ml
thy God require of Thee." Lt us
