Published by glennpease
BY S. G. BULFINCH,


THERE are many in our congregations,
who are withheld from participating in the
communion, by causes which a fair con
sideration of the subject would be likely to
remove. There are others, probably, who
unite in the ordinance from a sense of duty,
but to whom it is not as interesting and
improving as it ought to be, through the
difficulty of directing the current of the
thoughts, and developing the religious feel
ings. This little volume is an attempt to
meet, in some humble degree, the spiritual
wants of these two classes. It is composed
of materials, in part written for the purpose,
and in part prepared for the pulpit in the
course of the author s ministry. A few
pieces in verse are inserted, none of which
have before been published.
