DEDICATION.

MY BELOVED FLOCK,

These Lectures, preached for your edification, and reported through your kindness, have been carefully revised, and are now dedicated to you as an expression of the grateful affection of one who, throughout a ministry in Christ Church embracing nearly a quarter of a century, has ever had reason to love you more and more. No pastor can have had a people more faithful in their attachment, more delicate in their attentions, or more generous in their sympathies, than mine have been. I have not been insensible: if I have said little, it has been because I felt much.

This volume will have one attraction for you. It is a fair specimen of my ordinary ministrations amongst you—of the way in which I have striven to weave the golden threads of evangelical doctrine into the texture of everyday duty and character. May He—without whose blessing no effort can avail, and with whose blessing even mine will be effectual-overrule these pages to the increase of true religion amongst you! “And the very God of Peace sanctify you wholly, and I pray God your

whole spirit, and soul, and body, be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

I am,

MY BELOVED FLOCK,

Your faithful and affectionate Friend

and Pastor,

HUGH STOWELL.
