"THE INSIDE OF THE 041P."
"The Inside of the Cup is a long
story. Would it pay me to read
It?"
This question was put y rjy re-
cently in a community wh e this
book is finding many reader .This
much-discussed story, the tinmee of
which sl the apparent failure of thn
Church-meaning the entire body of
organized religion-to meet the
needs of humanity, impresse us as
having been written during a spasm
of discouragement. Had it author r
-a Churchman-put the same care
and eloquence Into a story narrating
what the Church is to thouMpds of
our country's po r, it would have
been immortal ft good. It needs
but a cursory investigation lato the
Church press, and even the secular
press, to show that our ownChurch
Is in the very van of al soc01log1ial
progress, and in New tUf^Cfty
alone, thouRinds of voices' ibt bo
heard, confuting the arsupawnt of
this book. A parish absolutely de-
void oflnyi oflt1eV uliftlnc: futures
of Church life, in which 'elticimm'
has taken the place of faith and not
one single person lives the sacra-
mental life of hope and peace is an
anomaly In any Church, aqd the
readers of this book, particularly
those of our own Church, are glad to
believe that this parish is, ia nreat
part, imaginary.

PASTORAL LETTER



OF THE HOUSE OF



BISHOPS A. D.


Hrethren of the Clergy and Laity;
Your Bishops illn General Conven-
tion assembled greet you In the
Name of the Lord: Grace be unto
you and peace from God our Father
and from the. Lord Jesus Christ.
With a profound ense of our re-
sponsibility as chief pastors in the
Church, we entreat you to stand fast
in the faith which is the foundation
of the world's hope: and we bid you
rejoice in the possession of the
eternal truth whereby we have as-
surance that human nature and hiu-
man life are forever redeemed and
saved in Jesus Christ.
It is our privilege to live and
work in an age resplendent with
great achievements and rich In
promise and opportunity for the chil-
dren of God: and the thoughtful
mind must study it with 'awe and
reverence and most solenin spiritual,
expectancy..
the ~tpial. hrltt is pianlici tists
H presence, tlroUgh thfi'pow&" 't
the Spirit, in the increasingly con-
scious unity of the race and in the
accepted dominion among many
millions of people of those standards
of life and conduct which Jesus
taught and which His disciples suf-
fered and died to perpetuate.
The unchanging need of men is
the Christ. The Church, the Bible,
and the Sacraments, history, science,
and philosophy, government, educa-
tion, and civilization are intended to
be torches to reveal Him to man-
kind, ties to bind Him to the race
and the race to Him, and paths
wherein He may walk with accus-
tomed feet among men.
He is here waiting for'new coi-
iftsts of the human will, new de-
votion to His purpose, that He may
lay new treasures at our disposal.
We have In Hinl a God who knows
the meaning of human life in itt
depths and in its heights. He en-
tered our life by the gateway 01
birth. The sympathy of God with
human life is thereby forever assur.
ed; and ie added victorious power
to the wealth of His compassion,
His love was stronger than death.
He broke its bars that Ife might
gain new entrance among men gft-
er such lmpfirabable manner th
never again can He be thrust away
from us unless tht whole race be.
come apostate. The human exper-
ience of the ages Is enshrined in His
life. He Is the Ancient of' Days.
with the knowledge of the ages; but
lie Is also the Spring of Youth, itt
touch with our times, ready, eager,
burning to impart Himself to us
that we may serve even as He served
He is here for the benefit of th3.
doubter, the sinstrlcken, the over-
burdened, the oppressed. He is
h11# not only to console us, but to
empower us as we meet our duty
an dface our task-the task of de-
veloping ourselves as the sons of
God, and society as the family of
God. It is because of His unexplor.-
ed wealth and His perpetual avail-
ability that we face without dismay
the unhealed sores, the unchecked
evils, and the unsolved 'problems
that arc ours. We believe that it Is
His purpose to work through us till
the divided Church becomes one
flock under one shepherd: till the
knowledge of the Lord covers the
earth, as the waters cover the sea:
till man learns his marvellous ca-
pacity by arriving at the fullness of
His stature.
pd in his glad paths of life not
les than in the sad; and refine-
ment of manners, gentleness, and
reverence are obligations of our re-
ligion, to which, we are contarained
to say, the fashions of the day show
scant regard. Even good taste, as.
what used to be called common de-
cency. seem to make little appeal to
many purveyors of popular eater-
tataments, and in the social life at
young peopi forms of recreation aret
tolerated which tend to blunt the
edge of conscience and, tarnish the
fine gold of maidenly modesty and
revrrve.
Doubtless, In a time like ours, sc
vital, so earnest, so exuberant lr
physical and mental energy, we must
not be surprised to find frivolous
and superficial excitements accom-
panying the strenuous and sterner
actlvitis of life, and men and womer
seeking relief from care In an excew
of amusement and recreation.
But let us beware lest we forge
that the body is, amdhg othet
things, a measure and Index, as wel
as an instrument for the support ani
development of moral life and char
acter. Manners are the body's mod,
of expressing the refinements o
life. They are not mere convention
al movements of a mechanism. Goo(
manners Indicate the respect lr
which a man holds himself and oth
ers. Dress and recreative activities
qr thinks to b determineS on theih
merlts and not by, the dictation of ir
responsible leC'dersJdf .blcidey. Al
that tends to make the body more
fitting as a shrine and instrument of
refinement is worthy of support. This
applies to amusemnts and sports
kept In 'due relation to the serious
purpose of life, The playground an I
the drawing-room, as being legitlt.
mate factors In man's education, are
a sphere for the activities of Christ..
If He is hot present often in social
gatherings and amusements of the
day, it ia because there has beer a
decay of manners, and men and wo-
men have been led astray Into ac-


cepting the novel, because it is ex-
oiting, without heeding the fact that
it tends to lower respect for self an

giving education its full definition,
It Is the means by which the wholo
pen becomes personalized and .is
realizedd up, to thesheight of his oa-
paclty: the body, the intelligence oa
lower consciousness, and the Intui
tive faculties or higher conscious
ness, must olr play their part and Ui
given due attention, There is a pro
cese, which consists of imparting in,
formation to the Intelligence or low-
er consciousnea. and which is popu,
larly called edisewtioe; but It is only.
a part of education, The noblest
faculty of the' hbman being is tdie
capacity of knowing and realizing.
the presence of God; and a system
for the training of youth, which
should make not provision at all for
the development of this faculty,
be a traesty on education
and a menace to civilization.
The .Generall Convention, there-
fore, ber enlarged the scope of the
General Board. ao Religious Educa-
tion, in order that all the education-
al work of the ,Church, in Sunday-
schools, int primary and secondary
schools, and in inatltutions of higher
learning may ba more effectively or-
ganized and more directly brought
to the attention of the people of the
Church. The children of today a-e
the men and women of tomorrow;
and we entreat the mothers and fa-
thers In the Cllrch, -to' whom, Go I
has committed t.e children as a ma,
cred trust, to see to it that these
little, ones are- instructed in those
principles of t.l faith which are, the
safeguards of the home and eociaty,
the bulwarks of the State, and th.n
Ideals of civilization.
The foundation of our hop, for their
future of thl country, of th i Church.
and of the Natlion. is the Christian
education of oura children,
The trouble with much of our ed-
ucation today ts that it is witho.u

ucation, and gives to it a beauty and
power for tl', self:-4doevqtment anin

The grere probMms of life weight
upon our human spiritss as heavit.
as they e.erO did before, and no td-
>ance in plhyescal science or phgE.-
sophy offers, us any relief. There
art sorrow and pain and anguish,
which defy ill human remedies, and
there are joys, which extermun cir-
climt~bance cannot kill. Death still
rtlgetl upon all, because all have
sinned, and the hope of humanity is
stkf. cintred in that amazlt truth,
"tItd so loved the world that Ha
gave His only-begotten Boa."'
The Church Is the custodian, the
gsordian, the administrator of that
truth, by virtue of His appointment,
wito said: "As the Father hath sent
le, even so send I you"; "All power
Sis given unto Me In heaven and in
earth; go ye therefore and make
Disciples of all nations, baptlling
Them in the Name of the Father and
of the Son and of the Holy Ghost,
teaching them to observe all things
Whatsoever I have commanded you;
Sand lo, I am with you always, even
t Into the end of the world." The
SChurch is the representative of
- (trlst. In her Innermost and ese-n-
r title life, she is what Christ is; and
Sas the Christ's life culminated 'in the
s Temptation and the Passion, so the
conflict with ignorance and misery
t and hopelessness and wickedness

I tic attitude of the Church. The

ADDRESS TO THE



GENERAL CONVEN-



TION OF 1913.

By the Right Reverend
Arthur S. Lloyd, D. D.,
President of tie Board of
Missions.


THE I CHUIt'H'S MISSION
AT HOME AND AIRO)AD

What Should lie Done to Further
it During the Next Three
Years.

If I had powers of -persuasion I
would use my time today to convince
you that the best and most profitable
thing the Church could do during
the next three years for its work of
extension, whether at home or
,abroad, would be to take into careful
consideration the whole plan of Its
organization for work; so that when
the Convention meets again three
S years hence it may be in a position
to adopt such a working plan as will
show that the Church not only
realizes that it has a great work to
do, but proposes to do it. The duty
is owes to the nation, as well as tho
Church's own best interests, demands
this if for no other reason than that
a right method is a controlling factor
In any successful work. But there. Is
another and more urgent reason for
reorganization. There is no question
that the Church is confronting tasks
for which its present organization is
inadequate. It cannot ignore any
longer without discredit many things
which will test its strength to the
utmost.
The Imnuigrants.
For example, hitherto we have
taken no part in the work that must
be done to help the new comers to
our shores understand what true
freedom depends on, except as In-
dividual dioceses have done what
they could. The well-being of the
State, as well as the Church's
strength, demand that the matter b'.
no longer delayed,
'lhe lnstitutdois of Higher Learnintg.
To suggest other work waiting
and which needs the Church's help
in far more effective fashion than has
been attempted heretofore: the In-
stitutions of learning in the country
are the centres of public opinion
/ since in the long run college men
/ and women are the determining
force in social development. Iu
these, especially in the Western
states, it is by no mL1eants unusual to
find young men and women who have
never heard of the Protestant Epis.
copal Church. The Church ought
not to allow this to continue on ac-
count of the loss it entails. If what
somebody has said be true, that as
long as we have the Book of Com.
mon Prayer and the Constitution,
American institutions are safe, that.
weight is added to the obligation
that rests upon you. But if it is tf
be done, it were futile to talk of the
dioceses doing it unaided. As a
matter of fact, in those states where
such work is needed most the Churc'i
is not strong enough to do it as it
'should be done, The Church must
not lose what is of essential value to
its welfare, or fail in the duty it
owes the State, because some diocese
is unable to meet all the demand~l
which the Church's best interests
lay upon it,

population: v "t li,,e are becoming;
rapidly unm cli lii '-l '( nithi all tIhe
attendant mar i of detilorioratlon.
Here again tile v. ork' to he done is
generally within the limits of dio-
ceses that are weak financially. They
cannot meet the problem as it should
be nmet. Yet from these same coun-
try districts coilstant recruits come
to our cities. It is largely for thm
Church to determine whether the
new life drawn thither shall help or
hinder a right civic development, to
say nothing of its own safeguarding
and enriching. I confess, there is
no waste that seems to me so serious
as this. There Is no reason why the
dtescendnnts of those who first settled
t'hls land should not add Increasing-
ly to its real power and wealth and
righteousness, And they would. if
they had a chance. Of this there is
pToof that cannot be gainsaid in the
results of the work done by thbse
'bishops and priests who for the
Church's honor hav thrown them-
selves into the task. Where the
means of development and the teach-
nlg on which character depends
have been brought within the reacl.
of thesa.egur feJlow-citigens, the roe-
sulte )4dW:beenms"Wtontehing, sbowlini

waiting to be tilled for the harvest.
Jt is practically trifling with its ow'n
future well-being for the Church to


leave it, as it is cruel to allow the
dioceses to bear the burden alone.
The Need of Greater Effliiency.
I need not enumerate other largo
opportunities inviting the Church to
gird on its dtrenfgth. This is'enougn
to set one thinking. If we are to do
any of these things we must develop
greater efficiency... ,Certainly as
thing s ae, th y cannot be done.
Hence t is interesting to note what
are the resources of the Church,
that we may learn whether the
ChUrch is doing all it ~cai. Thk
Church furnishes a disproportionate
share of the courage and brains that
direct the great enterprises in our
country. ..,Jt provides a larger part

in all that lightens the burdens Li
the unfortunate. Where effort is
made for the amelioration of condi-
tions its people are strong helpers.
Where work for God and righteous-
ness is being done, its priests and
lay workers are in the forefront. I's.
best asset is the character of its
clergy. With simplicity and sanity
it interprets for men the Revelation
showed by the Incarnate One. With
fidelity it clings to the Catholic tradi-
tion while It bears witness to human
liberty. Surely the Church in Amor-
ica is not lacking in resources for
the task to which is Master calls it.

It at all, for that would do injustice
to the splendid exhibit of individual

should have no right and faithful-

to complain if the casual observer
charged the Church with showing
no sense of responsibility for the
right use of the amazing power with
which the Lord has endowed It. So
fat' as organization is concerned, the
Church today, when it has become
national, is practically the same .as
It was when our fathers were strug-
gling to save It from perishing. Theri"

Church alone must we look for a

changing conditions require that a
missionary district be created, a
bishop is consecrated and thrown ot

he alone Is concerned, and whose
fate concerns none beside himself
and those whom he has persuaded

WILLIAM H. TAFT
ON FORIlEIGN MriSIONS.

Many books have been written
that contain criticisms of mission-
aries. Naval officers, and some-
times even foreign ministers, have
felt called upon to assert that mis-
sionaries are unsafe as counselors.
and that they are tactless in their
efforts to substitute an alien religion
for one with which people have been
satisfied for thousands of years.
I do not wish to pronounce per-
fect everything that misstouaries
have done. No doubt there are
among them emotional persons and
persons of little judgment. But
with very considerable opportunity
to judge, from four years' experi-
ence In the Orient, and from contact
with many missionaries in the Philip-
pines, I feel justitled in saying that
they are generally persons of high
character, high intelligence, high
standard of living-persons who ar,
willing to make every sacrifice for
the cause they represent, They are
men who know well the characteris-
tics of the people with whom they
deal. They learn their language,
they study their peculiarities, and
they train themselves to conciliatory
methods. The very history of their
broadened activities shows their
practical methods. The bishops, and
the heads of missions in the various
countries, are trained diplomatists,
and have learned much of states-
manship in their study of native con-
ditions. I know of many Instances
in which the greatest self-restraint
and tact 'have been exercised in or-
der to prevent an outburst that
would make such a cleavage be-
tween governmental authority and
the representative missionaries as
could hardly be closed for a decade.
Of course those who are engaged
in this great work are buoyed up by
the enthusiasm of the reigl)tit-
spirit, by the conselouehess of duty
well done, and by the senso of noble
self-sacrifice; but we must not over-
look the burdens they have to carry,
the diseases to which they are liable,
the lack of ordinary comforts to
which they are subjected, and the
homesickness that ,frequently be-
comes a real Illness of body and
mind. Time was when the unthink-
ing citizen looked upon a missionary
as an enthusiastic sort of "crank"
