Witness for God
Trinity Cathedral was crowded this morning with a notable audience assembled to witness the consecration of Rev. Arthur Llewellyn Williams, bishop-coadjutor of the diocese of Nebraska. All the pews were taken early in the morning, an hour or more before the beginning of the lengthy services, and at ten o'clock, when the ceremonies opened, there was scarcely standing room.
Rt. Rev. George Worthington, S.T.D., LL.D., Bishop of Nebraska, was the presiding bishop and consecrator. The co-consecrators were Rt. Rev. John Francis Spalding, D.D., Bishop of Colorado, and Rt. Rev. Theodore Nevin Morrison, D.D., Bishop of Iowa. Rev. Mr. Morrison served as substitute for Rt. Rev. William Edward McLaren, D.D., D.C.L., Bishop of Chicago, who was unable to attend on account of illness. Rev. Mr. McLaren had been mentioned on the programme as the preacher, and in his absence Rev. Mr. Morrison delivered the official sermon.
He talked at length on the evidence of the existence of God; evidence that may be seen in every-day worldly affairs. He regarded belief in a supreme being as a vital issue, and indicated that the world in general knows positively the existence of a God. He referred to the great numbers that have professed belief in Christian Science, and while he was not advocating such doctrine, he used it as an illustration to show that the Christian Scientists have built up a large following because they are pronounced in their belief in a God.
