The Mission of the Pulpit

Mercury Guelph, Ontario, Canada

The great mission of the pulpit must be essentially to the inner life. Such a ministry is slow and laborious; it costs more in study and living than superficial handling of popular themes; it is not showy, nor does it bring the applause of the majority; it is a constant, loving, living warfare against selfishness. It is a ministry that aims firstly to improve the spirit, the attitude, rather than the actions and conditions of men. It brings before men the fundamental conceptions of God as the sovereign ruler and provider, who has a plan for the life of every man and to whose orderings every man can trust to the full.
