KM DAY, NOV. 20, 1880.
In accordance with the pro clama
tjon of 1'rcsident Harrison, thanks
giving services wcie held yesterday
in the Central Union Church and St.
CKX'l lt.U. tNlON t'lU'lElII.
Quite a large congregation was
present at this church and the dc
coiations were very neat. The
choir under the direction of Mr. M.
II. , I ones rendered npecial music in
a very fine manner. The sermon
was preached by the pastor, Ilev. E.
C. Itecknilh, D. D-, who began
ilh a reference to Hawaiianiflndc
pendence Day, saying it came about
informally a't first." as fust things
were apt to do, and as was the case
with the first thank-giving day. This
was kept by the Pilgrims in 1C21,
les.s than one shot t year after that
Hand of exiles momed iheh' h.'itk
On I In- wilil New KiiiI:iml "-hoie.
It was kept at Plymouth, tl.e
shrine of every American's true loy
alty. The Pilgrims gave the nation
this beautiful festival, after their
first crop of corn was gathered in.
TltPV kept it 'tayouslv for three
days, sharing the least with ninety
Indians out of the woods. The l'il
grinis had passed through a winter
of great hardship and sickness that
desolated many homes. With spring
had "come health and they were now
at, harvest thrilled with the joy of
new hopes, ami especially were theii
hearts grateful for the religious lib
erty they had lelt England to se
cure. The pieachcr concluded:
Three whole days of gladness and
thankfulness, with all the heathen
out of the wild woods round about
sharing in the cheer and the plenty.
That was Jhc way they kept the first
Thanksgiving. And when I think
tl it, comparing their twenty acres
of corn, and nothing hut corn, with
our modern surfeit of all sorts of
luscious fruits, and all the luxuries
of all the climes under the whole
circuit of the sun, and our elegant
homes with their cabins, and the
dear homeland of sixty million
happy people with that little hamlet
of fifty struggling exiles, ami the
free schools, and free chinches, and
freedom of every sort, with their
just dawning hope of a chance to
pray unhindered and to serve God
now with hands and lienits unfetter
ed, and when I remember hot, our
modern peace and plenty and largo
lilerty, are very much tile fruit of
the jitlle seed they sowed i" t''li
loving and grateful trust, I .say to
myself, it will be a grievous sin and
ibame to us, if to-day in tho plenti
tudo of God's bounty to u, wo do
not call upon our souls and all that
is within us to praise anil magnify
his great and holy nanio.
T. AS)lti:WS OATIIlinitAI..
The Thanksgiving bcrvices at St.
Andrew's Cathedral were fairly well
attended, l'ho Bishop's congrega
tion had service at 10 o'clock which
was fully choral. Special hymns
were sung and Hie sorroon was
prcaohed by tho Bishop of Hono
lulu. Thoithnnk offerings for the
Chinese Mission amounted to $2.
At 11 :1. o'clock the second ccii;
grcgation's service commenced.
The Rev. Alex. Mackintosh intoned
the. service and the choir rendered
Willi much spirit Uarrctt's To Down
in 1', a jubilee anthem by Sir John
Stainer, Tallis' festival responses
and the hymns, "We plough the
fields and scatter," and, "Come ye
thankful people, come." The thank
offerings for the Chinese amounted
to 817.10. Thu sermon was preach
ed by the Rev. Herbert II. Goweti
from Ephesians V., verso 20, "Giv
ing thanks, always, for all things."
He said :
A great, mathematician asserted
that if he had a lever big enough, he
could move the world. The Chris
tian' has two levers powerful enough
to move heaven and earth. Prayer
and Praise. Prayer, bv which God
is brought down to man's necessi
ties. Praise, by which man is lifted
up to the dwelling place of God.
For Praise is the atmosphere of
Heaven. Hut while many of us,
somewhat vaguely, look forward to
a life of praise iieroalter, few real
ize that it may be our present pos
session. It is true, the sailor by his
cheery song, and the ploughman by
his whistle find that praise is good
for tho work of life, but we none of
us push the principle far enough.
See how large a part of the power of
St. Paul'slife Praise makes.- Weak
in body and harassed on every sido
lI thank my God' was his continual
Even when a prisoner at Home
deprived of his liberty, he could yet
write as iu the tcxt,"Giving thanks,
always, in all things."
The most elementary form of
praise is-gralilude, the. recognition
of blessings received from'God.
Ingratitude is not only unchris
tian lint it is a sin against nature.
"He that's ungrateful has no fault hut
All other cihnc. may pa-s for virtue in
Gratitude alone would lead us to
this day's thanksgiving. Gratitude
led the Jews to make the Feast of
Tabernacles the gladdest of all the
year. Gratitude led the heathen to
keep the feast of Ceres and make
the jov of harvest the type of all
joy. Let us sec that we possess this
most elementary of virtues, for
there are not wanting signs in these
days, that we arc getting to put our
scientific methods, appliances and
processes in the place which really
belongs to the Lord of the Harvest.
Just as God is still the God of
battles able to crush the arma
ments of men by land and sea, so
he is still the Master of the Harvest,
and numbers amongst his ministers
the blight, mildew and blasting,
wherewith to v. oik his will among
the nations of the earth. There is
need sometimes for uicu to he re
minded of the parable of .the rose
bush which in spite of the garden
er's infallible prescription of bones,
hair and soapsuds, did not flouiiMi
when cut off from the light of God's
sun Hut the Christian to-day will
remember other harvests than those
of the soil. Jn common we thank
God for the blessings he has given
us in common, but each individual
lias surely a separate anthem in the
great beiiedicitc which goes up from
us all to-day. For the Master of
the Harvest bows his seed in tho
heart too. There he has labored,
how patiently each conscience
among you knows. -There he ex
perts a harvest.
The .seed has been sown, sunshine
given abundantly; it is sad to think
that whereas nature yields tier irnit
so readily, there are many hearts
which have none at all that many,
after all the labor, have to confess,
"The harvest is past, the summer is
ended, and we arc not saved.' Still
are they playing witli the unpluckcd
weeds, still admiring the -gaudy
poppy, still blowing the thistlo-sned
far and wide oveitltc field of God,
but forgetting the harvest.
And a time of sore famine may be
at hand. The remedy for this i in
cultivating tlie life of thanksgiving.
The truest thanksgiving is thanks
living. Your praise must be some
thing more than a passing ripple On
tho waters of life, it must be the
deep current of purpose which bears
life's, everything, even its straws.
It must be something more than a
mere spasm of emotion, it must be
the coie and centre of life This is
the only true praise.
Iu Ephcsus, the city to which the
text was written, was tho great temple
of Diana, ono of the wonders of the
world. 'I'hoiisands flocked from all
parts to see its beautiful columns of
jasper anil Parian marble, itschoiis
of prieMs, Us continual worship, but
all this grandeur of outwaid praise
was bestowed upsn an ugly black
stone which occupied the innermost
shrine. So, it is possiblu that all
our outward expressions of thank
fulness, all our grandeur and beauty
of service may ho belied, If iu the
shrine of our hearts, thero be found
an ugly fotUh to which tho real
homage of our lives is yielded.
Don't let our worship to-day be
at variance with the tenor ot' our
lives. It is this which has hindered
the pi ogress of the Gospel of Christ
and been a stumbling block to the
heathen. In this way:
"Wo have pieachcd Clirl-l fur cemu-
I'ulll ai length men lent n to n.'off,
So fi w h'ciii any better off "
Let iia recognise practically, that
the good gilts we rccoivo come down
from tho Father of Lights. Let em
ployers recognise it by shaiing those
blessings with tue numniesv lauoicr,
who togolher wltli
tiiem wan upon
God's bounty. Let employees re
cognise it by willingness to share in
bad times as well as good. Let all
recognise it by sharing liberally with
God tho good things which come
from llim. j
In conclusion, 1 would say one
word about the "Ilomcgathorings"
which it true instinct lms associated '
with Thanksgiving Day. Tho Jews '
of old opened "(he door at the !
Passover feast and kept n vacant
chair so that if the Messiah came,
he might be a welcome guest. Have
the door open for Christ to-day. No
home gatherings here can bo com
plete.' There i no dock however watched
Hut one dead lamb Is theie,
Thcie Is no household howoe'er de
fended. Hut ha one aeaut chair.'1
Hut Christ will fill up the void.
The childless heart will lind llim,
the child of Bethlehem ; the heart
withered and satiated will feel His
hand of healing power; those that
are absent Ho will bring near. Many
will think to-day of dear ones, gone
since List year, gathered into the.
garner of God, lost to sight till the
graves are opened and the sea gives
up its dead. Let it not mar our
thanksgiving. Let us learn that they
too have their fruit. "Except a
coin of wlic.it fall into tho ground
and die, it ahidcth alone, but it it
die, it bringeth forth much fruit."
I doubt not there is man' a heart
here where that buried seed is burst
ing into fruitful life. Treasure that
harvest, too, thank God for it to
day. Our thanksgiving leads us to look
forward to the great Ilomegalhering,
to the great Harvest, to what the
oldN'orsemen called the"lleiingang"
to tho "Domusultima," the last, the
ftnthest, the perfect home. Here
we have days of waiting, days of
weeping, days of warring, but there
shall be immortal, our day of praise.
Our day, of Praise shall ne'er lie pat
While life and lhoiiy;lil and being last.
And Immortality Eiidmes.
