EXTRAORDINARY SERVICES Th® Church of th® Good Shepherd Formally Turned Over to the Bishop and Consecrated to Holy Uses, * Th® Rt. Rev Bishop Brown, of the Olooes® of Arkansas ana Sev eral Prominent Clergy from Abroad Were Present. • • • I The most important event of the veur, so fur. in the history of Forrest City has been the Special Services held at the Episcopal church, beginning Monday, January 20, 1902. and ending Wednesday about noon, during which the church was consecrated after the usual manner of such things to the sol* usp and purpose of Holy worship. The service began at 7:30 p. m. by Evening Braver, followed by an elo quent and most cordial address of wel come by the Rector, the Rev. Joseph 1 Cornish. Ills remarks were sincere, • nd he made the visitors feel the truth—that they were heartily and -incerely welcomed by Rector and lay man. The Rev. W. D. Wdiiams. D. D . Archdeacon, of Little Rock, then ad dressed those present upon the subject k The General Convention.” He was listened to with wrapt attention and high appreciation of his eloquence and earnestness. On Tuesday, at 9:30 a. m., the Holy Communion was celebrated ; celebrant, the Bishop. The Rev. Chas. II Lock wood, B. L)., who is so well known and loved here, occupied the pulpit and Drenched one of his characteristic ser mons. It was full of love and true Christian spirit, and made one feel better and have higher and nobler aims and aspirations. At 10:30 there was a conference of the Clergy, and at noon prayer for missions From three until five o’clock in the afternoon a reception was tendered •lie Bishop and Clergy at the church •"d rectory, to which all were invited. There was a good attendance and the visitors were made to feel that Forrest City knows how to receive and welcome her guests. Jt was a most felicitous •ccasion, where there was wit and wisdom, youth, beauty and honorable age. The rectory was thrown wide open to the guests, and’ dainty and delightful refreshments were served. At 7:30there was the Evensong, and at 8 o’clock the subject of Missions wan discussed in all its phasps. Mrs I B. Billow, of Helena, discussed “The Woman's Auxiliary” in an able and thoroughly conversant manner, much to the interest, pleasure and l>di fieatmn of all who heard her. Archdea con Williamsdiscussed“The Diocesan;” Rev. Joseph J.Cornisii,*-Among Colored Beople,” and Rev. Geo. B. Norton, I). I).. ‘ The Foreign ” The whole subject was handled in a masterful manner, and much to the benefit and enlightenment of the congregation. Thp praver and benediction was then [announced by the BishoD CONSECRATION. It would requite more time and space than we have at command to give our readers who were not present an ade quate idea and minute description of the Consecration Service. We can but outline it, and that poorly. It was sublime and beautiful in the extreme, The Bishop and Clergy presented themselves and made an alarm at the door. Mr. John Gatling, the spnior warden, demanded to know, “Who comes here?’1 The response was given, ‘The bishop or Arkansan and Clergy; admit ns.” They were admitted ann an t tiled down the nave to the chancel. A'ter this, the ritual consecration ser vice, which is a most sublime and beau tiful instrument, was used. 'fr Gatling presented the deed to the B’shop. in a most impressive and beautiful speech, as follows: “Right Reverend Father in God- Ten years ago last October—in 1891—the little band of Episcopalians in this plac *, under the leadership of that dear <11 man, Rev. C. A- Bruce, of whom this beautiful memorial window bears the testimony of our love, took up the task of establishing a church in Forrest City. Though few In numbers and imited in resources, yet with a brave he irt and unfaltering faith they diligently pursued their work, until the 5*h day of the following March they purchased, paid for and received this deed ti> the lot open which this edillcc stands. A few weeks after wards the foundation was laid and the corner stone placed in position. In June, 1894, the building commenced and was completed in August of that year. There is no debt against it. It has been paid for. The title is clear, and now I, as Senior Warden, in the : name of the Rector, Wardens and Ves try f this parish, and in the name of Hi good people everywhere who, by their means, their labor and their love i have contributed to its purchase, [ re gent to you this depd to this property, which now belongs to tIre Diocese of Arkansas, and ask that the building be dedicated and consecrated to the servic* of God.” And the church was consecrated to the service uf God and all good pur poses. After the «o» gecruti >n services, the Very Rev. Ferey J. Robottcm.of Little Rock, delivered a profound, elrquent interesting and instructive sermon, which was listened to by the congrega tion with evidences of profound ap preciation. I)r. Ijockwood, in an address of con gratulation, recounted the struggles of the parish under the efficient leader ship of the Uev. C. A. liruce, to whom and his wife the beautiful window in the church is a memorial. The voluntary was rendered by Mrs. Pearl Barnes during tne offertory in hercharactenstic manner, and wehave no words to convey an adequate idea of its soul-stirring sweetness Mrs. Barnes was in excellent voice and her rendition of th3 difficult solo was fault less. The announcement was made by Archdeacon Williams that it had been estimated that the church prop erty required repairs amounting to about $500, and that if the church membership would raise $250. llie Bishop would supply $250 ; or if that amount should not be required, he would give dollar for dollar up to the requirements, provided the whole shall be raised during the present year of Our Lord 1902 A collection was then taken for a “nest egg” for this fund. Col. Whipple, of Little Rock. Chan cellor of the Diocese of Aikansus, and Mr. J. J. Daggett, secretary, were in attendance at the Consecration. The Church of the Qond Shepherd is prospering under the rectorwte o! Rev. Mr. Cornish, and ix planning for an enlargement of effort along all lines. Wednesday night two eloquent ser mnns were preached by the Rev. Dr. Norton and Rev. C. II. Lockwood. Dr Norton’s subject was The Faith, as distinguished from faith which Is an attribute or human nature. The de monstration that The Faith was the Apostle's Creed was able and forcible. Dr, Lockwood followed on the same subject, and brought out the truth that the use of the Creed in the ser vices of the Church was as much an act of praise to God as the singing of His praises in psalms and hymns. Altogether, the week has been on* long 11 be remembered by the Bishop, Clergy and congregation of the Church of the Good Shepherd, It has been n religious feast, a satisfying of the heart’s hunger after better things, and all feel the benefits of these mus Christian gatherings. It has been .. love feast of which all were welcome t. partake, and none were disappointed May God bless Hnd prosper the Church and its membership.
