For my text I have chosen two words, and two
words only, — the word Called and the word Sent.
In the first chapter of the Epistle to the Romans,
and in the first verse, is the word Called. In the
tenth chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, and in
the fifteenth verse, is the word Sent.

CALLED AND SENT, AN ORDINATION SERMON. BY HENRY R. HEYWOOD Before I begin my sermon let me do myself, what I always would recommend other clergymen to do  — tell at once the subject of the sermon. It is a helpful custom to observe, both to preachers and hearers. My subject is the bracing encouragement which the two words Called and Sent give to a parish clergyman. For my text I have chosen two words, and two words only, — the word Called and the word Sent. In the first chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, and in the first verse, is the word Called. In the tenth chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, and in the fifteenth verse, is the word Sent. Called, Sent: that is the motto for this sermon, and that is the motto that I would ask you who are come here this morning to be admitted into the holy offtce of the Priesthood, and you who are

CALLED AND SENT: AN ORDINATION SERMON. 139 to be admitted into the order of Deacons, to accept as a motto for your ministerial lives. In the lesson for last Monday evening you will find one word, in the lesson for next Saturday evening you will find the other word ; and elsewhere in the Bible will you find the two words over and over again. As you read your Bibles, underline those two words as you come across them ; they were the text of one of your ordination sermons, and if you remem-ber nothing else of this sermon, remember its text, remember its motto, for the bracing encouragement, for the helping cheer of your whole future lives, you who are called, you who are sent, into the ministry of Christ's Church. You will all of you know well enough that I can now only touch upon some one little corner of the great big subject that on such an occasion as this lies before me. I must leave entirely untouched many matters that need your earnest care every bit as much as what I may speak of; but since " one thing at a time " is a rule as useful to observe in matters spiritual as in matters tem-poral, therefore I set myself simply to show you

one thing, namely, how in every-day parochial life you may bring into practical use this ordination sermon motto, " Called, Sent, by God." I. Called, Sent. The mission is from the Lord to represent Him as we go about our parishes. Having chosen, He sends from Himself You will 140 CALLED AND SENT: feel the strength, power, comfort of this Divine mission. Christ has sent me no less than the Apostles of old, and He is no further off; the Presence is veiled, but none the less is it Himself, because veiled. My mission is from Him. And this thought is extremely helpful, helpful both in ministering and in preaching. But for the fact of this calling, this sending, it would be an imperti-nence in a young priest or deacon to minister to, or preach before, those older, wiser, better, in the parish. But being called, sent, it is far otherwise. We are called, sent, to represent Christ Jesus in our parishes. Often look at Him on the Cross ; have often before your eyes Christ on the Cross,
