Opening Services in the New First
Presbyterian Chapel or
The Church Now Announces Itself
at Home to Members and
Rev. o. T. Webb Preaches on Worship;
Its Purpose and How to
Enjoy It.
Yesterday was an occasion of much joy to
the members of the First Presbyterian con
Rregation of Helena, which for the first
time held services in their new home. Since
the abandonment of the old church prop
erty at the corner of Fifth avenue and
Ewing street services have been held in the
district court room at the court house.
The Fret Presbyterian church, of Helena,
is no "pilgrim," er stranger in this city of
the mountains. After many months of
migration and vicissitudes it has just be
come established in a permanent location
at the earner of Eleventh avenue and Ewing
street, and now announces itself at honit
to all its members and friends. In all its
recent changes it has been true to its trusact,
keenly alive to its own true and best inter
eats and ever steadily working towards one
great aim. Long ago identified with the
solid and substantial institutions which
ever follow growth and prosperity in our new
communities, it is to-day an evidence of
the educational, refining and religious in
fluences which pervade these "latter days."
From a small beginning it has now reached
a membership of 800, and reckons among
its members many of the pioneers of the
city and state in fellowship with recent
citizens and comparative strangers. The
new chapel, or Sunday school building,
now ready for occupancy is in fact but the
advance step taken towards the Presbyte
rian church proper. It comprises s large
auditorium with a seating capacity of 650,
with smaller rooms opening into it upon
the east side, devoted to Bible, infant
classes and intermediate service. Upon
the west side of the main room are situated
the Sunday school library, the kitchen and
other rooms fitted up for different praeti
eal purposes. The ladies' department, de
voted to the use of the ladies of the con
gregation for aid societies, missionary and
other meetings, is divided from the audi
torium by sliding doors. It has its own
cheerful grate and is pleasant and com
fortable in every sense of the word; and
the serroundlngs should act as fitting in
spiration for future ,work in behalf of
benevolent objects, which have cer
taiily prospered in the past at
their hands. Above this apartment
is the pastor's study, most conveniently
arranged, with stationary book cases around
the si.des fitted with glass folding doors.
This'is furnished with softrugs of beautiful
colors, a student's desk, lounge, easy
chairs, and is, indeed, a lovely resting soot
in which to invigorate the mind and refresh
the body, wearied with the burdens of ae
tive responsibility. Electric bells and
lights are at all convenient and available
parts of the building. The windows are
beautiful creations of art and shed the
requisite "dim religious light" upon the
saint and sinner who shall there assemble
together. One is especially noticeable
among the nhmber of stained and variegated
windows. It is a "memorial" of the love
and labors of Bajboar Pratt Knight and is
placed there as a token of his voluntary ef
forts in a course which excited his youthful
enthusiasm and for which he worked with
the zeal and perseverance of a devotee antil
fully accomplished. The pastor, Rev. T.
V. Moors, l~ps been In Helena for eight
years and fihds a loyal and devoted people
in this field of hip speiritual labors. He is a
lineal descenzdant of Gen. George-Washing
ton, his mother, Elizabeth Givalthinay,
being the granddaughter of the general's
only sister, Bettie Washington. So that
the blood of a true and distinguished line
flows in his veins. Mr. Moore has been ed
ucated at the best institutions of this
country and of Beotland, from which land
of loeehs and rugged peaks, comes his gentle
and effioient wife. He is thoroughly
equipped by nature, education and travel
for his chosen profession.
WorshIp; Its Purpose and How to En
joy It.
The. following interesting sermon was
delivered by Rev. P. T. Webb, rector of St.
Peters Episcopal church. His text was:
"I was glad when they said unte me, lot
us go into the house of the Lord."-Psalm
oxxii: 1. We describe often the character
of a man by saying he is a "strong" or a
"good" churchman. David, the king and
Psalmist, was a religious man of this type.
In the Psalm of which the text is the open
ing verse. he expressec his appreciation of
the church, praying for peace within its
walls. There it ought certainly to exist.
He predicts prosperity to those who love
the church and, in the beat tense, prosper
ity will be theirs. Eager to enter its courts
he awaits the return of each frequent op
portunity to enjoy its worship; he is clad
when the hours of service cornse around.
Announcement has just been made of the
Lenton services to be held in this parish.
T'hroughout itheae forty days the church is
to be open daily. Do we we all get the sat

Certainly the lantter. Possibly you have
been wont to count all the comfort of wor
ship in what is brought back to you. But
that, as you see, is not its highest power.
Is it not the great aupesal of Christianity to
us, not to be aeoltsh? to turn our vision, too
apt to be always introsoeotive, away from
ourselves to the broad brotherhood of our
kind and then to our Lord and Redeemer?
Not less should our worship lift us above
ourselves. How can it be ennobling unless
it does? Is it not the tendency of most of
our employments, of our business or pro
feasion, to contract the range of our inter
est, making us more and more self-cen
tered? But here comes our worship with
its demands upon our intellect and will and
affections, moving them away from our
selves up to the Highest, and being intelli
gent can it fail to broaden thereby our
whole being? You become narrow
by negleating it. Asked on tte
eosat of Syria to visit the
holy city. Napoleon haughtily replied:
'Jerusalem does not enter into the line of
my operations." Just as deliberately, in
forming their plans of living., men are apt
io leave out entirely any consideration of
those plases whose associations are sacred;
it is with the world not with religion that
ihey are concerned; emphatically, neither
chureh nor worship enters into the line of
heir operation. But to this extent they
ronspioaouely contract their natures. Apart
:hue from its relation to social science, its
worth even in Christian culture, worship
makes its special claim upon us to acknowl
edge and honor God. Let us fix this dis
linguisbing feature of it in our mind. It
a a giving to God before itisa getting from
In addition to the three reasons I have
mentioned as given in the prelude to our
morning service, you recall a fourth: "to
sk those things which are requisite and
necessary as well for the body as the soul."
Ye would not want this cmitteed.
'Thanksgiving," "praise," the "word of
nod:" these perhaps may constitute the
worship of heaven. On earth we need
"prayer" also. And it is provided for. In
11t our worship we pray as weH as praise.
But in common prayer even our petitions
are not narrow or selfish. There is indeed
personal element: the aspiration is your
own. We are citizens of heaven. In prayer,
though the knees be bent and the head
towed, our
* * * "thoughts like palms in exile
Climb no to look and uray
For a glimpse of that dear country
That lies so far away."
And yet is it so far away? The sense of
communion is an experience and joy that
belong to your own soul. Yet in the
thought of the Church's catholicity, that
part of our public worship which seems
most like private prayer, swells into accord
wish that large idea. which we have seen to
be involved in the word "worship."
Let me ask you to notice this point. We
are having during Lent daily services. How
are we to determine their value? Thus far
the attendance has been fair; not as large
as it ought to be, but not discouraging.
Suppose it should diminish! Would that
invalidate their object? "The liturgy of the
Church," I quote from a wise article in the
Church Eclectic, "in all its offices, whether
celebrated oih a Sunday or a week day.
whether on her eveat festivals, amid the
circumstances of great congregations, or at
some early Eucharist or quiet even'song,
where two or three only are gathered to
gaether, is by no means a mere office of pri
vate devotion, and cannot possibly be
measured in its use or blessings by the
question, "'How much good it may do me,
or simply those who are present.' The
church's worship, though uttered by a
single voice, comprehends the whole body
of believers and intercedes for all classes of
men. whether in the parish. in the diocase,
or in the whole world. Her prayers and
sacrifices ascend in behalf, not only of
such as in any particular place are offering
them, but of all who may be the proper
subjeots of them. Two persons then
may take part in the service .
* * * and hundreds
or, for aught we know, thousands may be
benefited by it." It is the worship of the
great, wide church in which you are en
caged. Nor in this sense only are you
never alone, though your voice only re
sponds to that of the minister at the desk
or altar. From little clusters here and
there on earth, with angels and archangels
nnd all the company of heaven, the uni
versal praise is made. And every worshiper
is one of that great company.
Let these thoughts impress us with the
dimnity of that employment to which the
church bell shall so often summon us dur
ing these forty days-employment both of
body and soul.
It is not with trivial thines, but with the
subliment, that we are dealing in worship;
it is not with men nor with angels, but
with the Infinite One, God over all. Father,
Son and Holy Ghost.
And it is with a vast host that we bend
onur knees in prayer and rise in praise:
aneals and living saints and dead, one
communion; part militant, part triumph
ant-the church and kingdom of our Lord.
A p.mrhlet has been published which
enumerates fifty reasons why it is incumo
bent upon people to worship God. But one
reeson is suflicient. We recognize insainct
ivily the force of the apostolic charge:
"And let us consider one another to pro
voke unto love and good work, not forsak
inc the aesomblins of ourselves togothur."
Worship is a source of prouit; it is a ineans
of grace. It bhould also be a uleasure.
What are the conditions of its enjoyment?

We say that God is here. Lot us get a

this ftame of mind one must needs be alive

Familiarize yourself before you leave
your hobe with the Lessons, the Psalter,
the Evistlo and Gospel for the day. This
will put you in possession of the thought
which gives unity to the day's servioe;
rendering your participation more intelli
gent and keeping the understanding active.
One ought to be thoroughly awake in his
mental facilities, but never to criticise.
The critical word and the devotional are
Observe too the postures appypropriate to
the various acts of worship, kneeling, not
merely bowing the head, in prayer. In
difference in this respect is almost a certain
indication that the thoughts are otherwise
engaged. For does not the body respond
instinctively to the movements of the mind?
Let your participation in the responsive
elements be reverent indeed, but sponta
ueous and hearty. The "amens" in the
early church sounded, it is said, like a clap
of thunder. You will enjoy the worship in
which both your body and your voice, the
heart and mind soul join; and that will
be acceptable to God.
One other condition of enjoyment I men
tion: a certain sympathy with the congre
gation. Here I confront a wide-spread
difficulty. Let me present briefly the two
sides of the question.
That familiar suggestion, in the first
place, that someone made after hearing a
sermon on the recognition of friends in
heaven that there was need also of some
preaching concerning the recognition of
friends an earth, has another aspect be
sides the humorous. He had been con
nected with a parish for a number
of years, without knowing save by
sight anyone in it. The experience is
scoarcely a fanciful one. "Not a few," it
was stated in "The Churchman" sometime
since. "become exasperated against the:
church because they find in it nothing an-'
swering to Christian fellowship and next to
nothing which answers to Christian civil
ity." Christian courtesy certainly loses
none of its grace when manifested in the
house of worship. A thoughtful anxiety
lest those who habitually or occasionally
worship with us should leave any service
with an uncomfortable impression that
they are aliens, at least from our common
wealth, is not at all incompatible with the
sincerest devotion. Neither does it lessen
one's interest in the service nor detract
from his enjoyment of it. Let us admit
that as a whole our parish, and the church
at large, is here at fault. We may be more
considerate of strangers. IUnt look at the
other side.
We teach that our church buildings are
not the place for loud greetings or gossip
ing or secular conversation; we inculcate a
rveorence, because of its' associations and
its consecration, for the house itself. It is
ihrough the various parochial organiza
tions; the social gatherings, the working
societies that acquaintance should be made
and fostered. Let us work against the evil
of which I speak by these agencies. I am
glad that the endeavor is now being made.
And those who have grievances under this
head, let them meet us half way. You have
stood aloof and cherished a fancied neg
loot. Put aside your bitterness.
Come and share our labors; come
and join us in our worship; on bundays,
morning and evening on Saints' Days,
through the oresent Lententide. It is your
right to do so; a right of which no one
wishes to deprive you; a right which we all
wish you God speed in claiming.
Of the sources of enjoyment in the prayer
book itself I do not stop to speak. If it is
possible for any ritual to lift one above the
world, out of the anxieties that harass his
soul, this, surely, which we have so fre
quently the opportunity to use is qualified
to do it. From the confession, which, if
genuine, leaves you with a lighter heart
and a conscience unburdened, it moves with
a growing fervor to its close with a blessing
which invokes as you depart that peace of
God, which passeth all understanding, to
remain with you forever. From each ser
vice, rightly used, you should go as you
might hope to pass from the world, having
the testimony of a good conscience: in the
communion of the Catholie church; in the
confidence of a certain faith; in the comn
fort of a reasonable, religious and holy
hope; in favor with God and in perfect
charity with the world. And stepping
forth what better resolve for our daily life
could we make than this-to live more
nearly as we have prayed.
