A GOOD WORD EACH WEEK. - XXXVII. THE laborer is worthy of his hire, but the gospel minister being employed by the Divine Master, looks to him and not to man for his hire, which is peace of mind and assurance of divine approval. —SAMUEL M. JANNEY.

From his Memoirs, p. 184.

MY SOUL IS A SPIRIT WITH WINGS.

I creep along by the dusty way.
How the great elm-boughs quiver and sway !
Far is the sky—ah, far away !—
But my soul is a spirit with wings.

I lay me under the hedgerows brown ;
Weary and worn I lay me down.
Chill is the earth, and the far clouds frown,
But my soul is a spirit with wings.

O torrent and tempest may batter and beat me : The winter may freeze and the summer may heat me ; But I’ve that within, within, to complete me, My Soul is a spirit with wings. —Éannah Parker Kimball, in Christian Register.

RICHMOND CONFERENCE PAPERS.
III.
RELIGIOUS CULTURE IN THE HOME.
BY ISAAC H. CLOTHIER.

I APPROACH the subject which has been assigned me, not with diffidence alone, but with a profound distrust of my qualification to treat it in a manner corresponding to its importance, and adequately to meet the views of this earnest convocation of the Religious Society of Friends. And yet with opportunities for observation perhaps equal to those of most Friends, I recognize deficiencies among us in the direction indicated, greater perhaps and more prevalent than among the families of members of Christian churches generally. And this distinct belief in and acknowledgment of deficiencies, and especially in my own case, as one of the heads of a large family, is my sole hope of presenting thoughts worthy of expression and consideration on such a subject and on an occasion like the present. Out of a realization of need, therefore, out of poverty, not out of the richness of experience, must my expression come. Organization for Christian public worship as instituted by the Apostle Paul, has undoubtedly been a powerful means of aiding the human race in a realization of their duty to God and to their fellowmen. Imperfect though its results have been, its general tendency and efficiency in bringing man nearer to God, and its influence for good on the world, directly and

imperfections and drawbacks, undoubtedly been a powerful means for good to the human race. The inculcation—in degree—of habits of devotion, the development of individual allegiance to God, the confession of service to him, and, above all, the constant communion with him, tend powerfully towards making man a fit instrument for his service in the world and to the sanctifying and uplifting of human life. This spiritual condition, when attained, is not alone a preparation for eternity, but is the very crown of earthly existence. The attendance on public worship, the participation in the service of the church, however, is not of itself sufficient. To attain the Christian dispensation, to even approach the possible heights of human life, there must be this daily communion with the All-Father, thereby constantly elevating and nourishing the spiritual life as is possible in no other way. . While public worship, however, is a duty to others, and a distinct help to one's self, it cannot take the place of individual worship, of personal daily or hourly communion with the Author of our existence, with the Omnipotent and Eternal God. If we admit this, what then is the duty and the privilege in the family capacity in the inner sanctuary of the true home P This brings us to the heart of the subject now under consideration, and the question naturally arises— What is religious culture ? Is it not the inculcation and observance of habits which tend to the constantly increasing development of the religious and spiritual life P What are the most effective means for religious culture in the home P The subject is a delicate one, and one that needs to be treated with a profound appreciation of its influence under favorable conditions in moulding the spiritual lives of the young, and of all who come into the true spirit of worship, by making it a part of their daily lives at home and abroad, and, therefore, part of themselves individually. It may be a shock to some concerned Friends in this body, whose individual and family experience may lead them to question the accuracy of the statement, but I believe it to be a fact, that in the Society of Friends the custom of united family worship is not
