WHERE ARE THE PASTORS The Christian Comni'invyj!Ih gave voice to following opinion in n leading article a forto' insert it in thesp columns. It rends :âThe tia is that the Free Churchs are suffering frou1 plethora of ministry and a lack of pastors. gregations by hundreds are complaining that old-fashioned visitation by faithful pastors is n°^u adays hardly known. This is not only the caS<^n3 crowded cities, but also in small quiet tov People often say, What can our minister do IS himself all the week ? He never visits any 0 J. except- two or three superior families, and ho c»a need to study all day long for his two sermons- It is an dd and almost proverbial expression t a preacher wiio is invisible all tho week is f be incomprehensible on Sunday." The reviva is parochial activity in the Church of In[!,lan re marvellous. In the parish where these being penned the Vicar and his curates are visi incessantly at the poorest houses. Of course j not universal, but, for the most part in the Eng al at f 1 t' 't I. 1 J';Ucrtl of to-day, Nonconformists are bitterly realizing f rheir preachers, often splendidly paid, are el on- making their big sermons an excuse fo? visitation, or are so absorbed in public fnnct1 apart entirely from their proper work, that tllTI neglect their pastoral duties, and at the sawo. .g preach very superficially. Jf Nonconformity to declining in any senso the ministry is lai'gev blame. The Dissenters undoubtedly stirr-ef Church of England to new life when it was im'f Another order of clergy has arisen, fRll^0* .2'-ts energy, and consecration, and Nonconformity 10 turn has slumbered.
