Bishop IPenich
New Diocese in Fine
The primary
of the
diocese of - western . North
convened last night at the church of
the Ascension with an opening ad
.dress by the Rt. Rev. E. A. Penick
D. D., of Charlotte, new coadjutor
bishop of; North. Carolina.
The solemnity and rrreat dignity of
the services last night were very im-
pressive, and it was quite singular that
the newest bishop - in the Episcopal
church made his lirst appearance be
fore the newest diocese-in the church.
A feature ot the- excellent music was
an anthem with" solo parts bv Mr
. The convention ..which opened last
nightrwill continue turough tomorrow
morning. One .hundred or more dele
gates including many prominent
ministers bishops and other officials
of . the Episcopal church are present.
Dr, Penick j the speaker, of the even
ing, was elected bishop coadjutor at
the diocesan convention held -"in
Raleigh last May. During the summer;
the . confirmation of ' his election " and
the consent of his consecration were
obtained from a majority of the
bisb.ops - of l. the- United States "and
from the standing committees of the
national church - as . required by the
church constitution. Dr. Penick is the
sixth white clergyman to be elevated
to the office of the Episcopate since
182&. Dr. Penick was inducted into of
fice Sunday at St. Peter's church
Strong and talented and possessing:
pleasing -personality and great mag
netism, Dr Penick at once-commands
the attention of his audience. His
voice is well modulated and carries
perfectly and he is endowed with
oratorical powers that mark him as
one of the great speakers of his day.
He is well fitted for the office to
which he has . been elected and
through his consecration will become a
great leader,
Dr. Penick brought greetings from
the east to the new diocese and de
clared this to be a happy time for
all. "The new diocese could havebeen
achieved only by leadership and loyal
ty - on the part of the church and
people. The time, has come when a
forward step can be made here and
the news c f .the achievement and
success of the new diocese will soon
be circled around the globe and men
will rejoice over the accomplishmet
here. -.."' --' v. .
'The Greatest Thing We Can Do
With Our Lives" was the theme of
Dr. Penick's address and he went on
to say that the average person wants
to do the greatest thing for his life.
We have to build around the better
part of our lives that which iff best.
The greatest thing in life is to identi
fy that life 'with the will ot . Uod.
He has a purpose and it is a lifelong
struggle sometimes to ao' witn our
lives what God intends for us "What
does God intend 7 for us individuals"
was asked.- It is the Nme as Christ
. . . 1
taught and as John the Baptist taught his adress and gave his charge to the
bef ore Him. Behold .the ; Kingd of i new . diocese. At 1 o'clock a luncheon
God is at Hand". This wasrthe themewas served in the. parish house and
of Christ's teachings and his miracles dur5n? the afternoon the visitors were
were all - summarized on . that one tft W antm-nnhiU r!H th
nhrse. -He sent -His disciules abroad
to Preach the kingdom of God and His
las 40 days on earth were devoted
to teaching of the kinedom. I
Christ's desire was to set up a ,
kingdom and He taught ; us to pray j
''Thy Kingdom -Come." In this king

peacemaking and loyalty are demand--M w p Whitener and of the late
ed of us. It .ncne"K5h; Jesse. Barger, died at his home in.High

as the church and through the spirit death has caused sorrow amongmany
of Christ had invited us to come into friends The funeral will be hd Thurs-
relationship. Man cahnot assert his
i inaepenaence- nor. can uts, iunm muu
divine purpose without tne enmcn.
It is His body - and each of us who
Last Evening
has been baiptised is a member of that
body. As every part of the human
body is connected with oneself so is
each of us related to the head and that
is Christ. .
The least little thing done, even
a cup ot cold water m His name, is
related to that church whereby Christ
is setting up His kingdom. The church
as a divine organism is not generally
understood, declared the speaker. To
some the church is, like some civic or
ganization in which there is felt no
deep, compelling responsibility. So
long as they regard ; the church as
such they5" are consistently right in "do
ing as they please bdt without ' the
divine consecration they are not, able
to do these things. - What the cluii-ch
does is to fill the members with divine
life and. enable them to do the things
they are not capable of doing: ..alone.
As we come more and more into har
mony with Christ we find faith , Isr
something we may possess which
makes us different,-transforming our
lives from day to day. How different
from every day life-giving us energy
and propelling us , on. That is the.
power that is bringing the kingdom
to Jesus' feet- God working in ouj
wills and making us do that which
is right.--; -.' .; , :; : :.;-:v-'-'" :-.-
It seems there is a dreadfui earnest
ness about this thing but as yet we
have not" circled , the globe with the
tidings .of Christ's kingdom. When
the war broke out in 1914 England
sent out the message to alt the British
empire in six:minutes that they -were
at war but we, after 2000 years, havj
-not sent the message around tcie
world of Christ's love. - V .
God has spoken through.-' his son.
There was haste about the message
that we do not feel and it was the
earnest desire of Dr, Penick that we
could feel the urge, the accountability
of getting the message abroad, especi
ally now when the world is-'in a state
I of unrest and unhappiness. '
We can identity ourselves with the
will of God that we find place ' in
His kingdomfthrough membership
m the church, - that divine organism
It will require haste to bring the
message but the greatest thing that
we can do with our lives is to circle
the globe with the message of Kis
: In closing Dr. Penick again brought
greetings to the sister diocese wishing
it Godspeed and praying that all that
is undertaken be done for the con
tinuation of His glory.
Following the services the congre
gation and guests repaired to the
Hotel ,Huffry where an informal re
ception was held for the congregation
to meet the new bishop and visiting
delegates. A delightful hour or"; more
was .spent "in the hotel dining room

for all to become better acquainted.
