THE CONGREGATIONS OF THE CITY J
UNITE IN GIVING THANKS.
A Scholarly and Eloquent Discourse by
Rev. Mr. Seabrook in the Baptist
Appropriate Thanksgiving services,
in which all the congregations of the
city participated, were held at the First e
Baptist church yesterday morning. i r
The sermon was preached by Rev. W.
L. Seabrook, pastor of the Lutheran
Church of the Redeemer. It was an e
eloquent and scholarly discourse, laden a
with thought, and in the manner of its a
delivery holding the undivided atten
tion of the large and representative n
congregation present. a
The speaker chose his text from the
115th Psalm, the morning lesson: "The n
Lord hath been mindful of us: he will
bless us; he will bless the house of
[sreal; he will bless the house of Aaron.
He will bless them that fear the Lord,
both small and great."
He said than this day there was no
lay more appropriate for the coming h
ogether in united service of the repre
sentatives of the various churches of
the community-the day that has long tl
been known as Thanksgiving Day, upon 01
which the people come together in obe- e
hence to the call of the chief magis
trate of the nation and the governor of
the State. Every day, it was true,
should be a thanksgiving day, because I
every day was marked with mercies to
each individual, but it wa; fitting that
:ne day should be set apart for the
whole nation as a day of special and
general thanksgiving. No nation on
earth had more to be thankful for.
Each nation, like each individual, was
sent into the world with a God-given
mission and could not pass away with
)ut having accomplished one of two
things: either it must fulfill that mis
;ion, or it must prove recreant to the
trust which God has given it. He
thought with another that the Ameri
,an democracy was made up of all that
was best in the governments of all
he preceding nations. What America
would accomplish would be disclosed by
he ages that are to come.
America now was only another name
for opportunity. Truly God has been
nindful of .our people. America, since m
.er discovery, has been God's country, -
m.d is God's country today. Bou.nti- tl
ully has she been blessed, a land today sc
>f which it has been said as truly as gi
t has been said of another c'ountry T
;hroughout the ages, that it is never r
without the sunlight-a land of un
mted natural resources, of wounder- ~
Eul material well-being, and above all re
i land of aioral development: a land of
hurches and of the Bible. But past
ylessings were not a pledge of future
)lessing. The speaker was afraid that di
;oo many of our people think that notit- ti
ng can stay God's hands in the blessings
hich he would bestow upon us, what- J.
aver life we live, whatever wrongs we E
yerpetrate. Remember the text, "He E
wrill bless them who fear the Lord.'' R
He was full of hope for our land; his
Eace was turned towards the sunrise,
aut in no better way could appreciation
f the past be shown than by thought E
Eor the future. There were breakers
rhead of the Ship of State, and he did
aot know whether greater folly was to
be found in too great optimism or in
that pessimism which can do nothing A
but see the breakers.
He thanked God for this day when all '
ver the land would be proclaimed the
principles of Christianity-the principles
