Excerpt from The Pastor's Jubilee: A Discourse Delivered in the South Church, Salem, Mass;, April 24, 1855
The connexion between a minister of the gospel and the people of his charge is most sacred in its nature, and of transcendent importance in its results. Your connexion with men of other professions is transient, accidental, rare. With a minister it is habitual, peculiar. No other professional man can fill his place. -you want him not to transact your business, but to_ be your friend, an inmate in your families - to 'enter your hou ses of afﬂiction - to give you light, admonition, and consolation in suffering, sickness, and the last hours of life; - to meet you in the sanctuary and preach to you of the unsearchable riches of Christ.
