SUNDAY COMPANION.

Volume the first.

These temples of His grace,

How beautiful they stand!
The honours of our native place,

The bulwarks of our land."

Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner-stone."-Eph. ii. 20.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee.

A WORD TO THE READER.

[ocr errors]

HE “CHURCHMAN'S SUNDAY COMPANION” is intended chiefly for the Cottager CHURCHMAN; that

he may

1. Become better acquainted with the Church of England

and her principles. 2. Know the full meaning and value of her Scriptural

Prayers. 3. See something of the success which attends her en

deavours to spread the Gospel of Christ. 4. Have an opportunity of better understanding his

Bible. 5. Be made acquainted with traits in the characters of

holy men; and become imbued with their holy

thoughts. It is hoped that all the papers inserted will partake of the spirit of the learned and pious Hooker, “there will come a time when three words uttered with charity and meekness shall receive a far more blessed reward than three thousand volumes written with disdainful sharpness of wit." And if this little publication shall in any degree contribute to the peace and unity of the Church of Christ amongst us, or promote unfeigned piety in any member of the same; this will infinitely repay the labour which is expended upon it.

The haste with which this our first number has been got up, must be an apology for any inaccuracies. hope in future to make some important improvements. JANUARY, 1844.
