Excerpt from Our Church Music: A Book for Pastors and People
Seated in his pulpit-(it is customary, here, for clergyman and people at this moment to be seated)-he 1s turning over the leaves of his sermon. He is thinking, perhaps, that it is too long he will curtail here, and condense there. A felicitous thought suddenly strikes him - he is hastily interlining it with his pencil. Now he is gazing dreamily about the church. Of what is he thinking? Perhaps, that the congregation is very thin' to-day - he misses cer tain of his parishioners. Perhaps, that a child is to be baptized; Have the baptismal party arrived in church? Perhaps, that among the notices to be read, a certain com mittee-meeting has been forgotten he must Wink the nearest church-officer up in the pulpit to him, to have that matter decided. Or, he suddenly observes that the light is not right, and the sun will soon be pouring in upon him through yonder gallery window. Now, therefore, he is standing a hymn-book in a certain position on the pulpit, as a private signal to the sexton.
