What is the outlook for the church in the future ? What should be its future, in a general way, requires no prophetic faculty to indicate. What will be that future, it is more venturesome to predict. Of one thing none can doubt: With such antecedents as we have in the Congregational line, and with such a polity and doctrines, and with such resources and arrangements for Christian work, and with such promises of the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, the Master has a right to expect of us some good and large work for his kingdom. The pastor concluded his address by indicating in three or four particulars what he hoped and believed the future of the church could be. " There is no reason why, under such favorable and hopeful circumstances, the future activities and usefulness of the church should not be greatly enlarged and increased. It needs only the personal consecration of its members to their high and sacred duties, and the presence and blessings of God's spirit to insure this larger success in the future, and if there is a genuine and hearty consecration, the Divine favor will not be wanting.
