Questions of theology are not questions of religion but questions of philosophy; questions of organization are not questions of religion but questions of expediency. One cannot fail to discover ture religion in the writings of Wesley and Channing, though Wesley is a Methodist and Channing a Unitarian. I suppose I am a Congregationalist because I was born one, though I recognize many advantages in the Congregationalist form of organization. I admit that it is important to settle what denomination to join, but so long as a man is left free to follow the teachings of Christ, it make comparatively little difference whether he is a member of this church or that.
During the evening the choir sang the following anthems: Lord of all power and might,-Mason; O Lord, our Governor,-Marcello; Blessed is the man,-Knox.
