Review of Position.
T is a faint heart which does not look cheerfully and hopefully upon the future of the National Church of England. It he other hand, a poorly informed or selfcomplacent judgment which does not measure the depth and the amount of the accumulating responsibilities of her clergy and her people. It is a slothful or a self-indulgent life which does not act steadily upon the sense of what those responsibilities are. It is wilful blindness not to note the weaker points of the position, and especially the danger from within. For all danger to a Church is, in its origin and its power, from within. The fortunes of a falling Church are a. continuous suicide. All warning and all experience, from the days of the Seven Churches of Asia till now, put this fact upon record. It makes no difference here whether a Church be national or not national: whether it be, that is, as the Church of England, recognized and established by the common and the statute law of the land as an integral part of the constitution, or whether it exist in a country as one religious body out of many, but with no peculiar and distinctive rights and privileges by custom and by law. There is no difference in respect of the source of danger. The thing which weakens or finally destroys is, in kind, the same in both cases. But there is a difference in degree: because, as the nationality of a Church is a gift superadded to its existence, and a very excellent gift, so the suicide in this case is the worse and the more thankless.
There is no present fear for the national position of the Church of England. There is no future fear, except under circumstances of intrinsic unworthiness which there is no ground to anticipate, and of changes in the framework and order of our social relations greater than it is easy to foresee. It is much to be able to say this, but it is not enough: it is after all only negative encouragement. To be able to take the position of the Church out of the category of things for which we fear is but a poor result and cannot satisfy the conditions of the gift. The Church need not fear for its position, and yet may be standing still. But what is required is that it do not stand still; that it advance continually in promoting the well-being of all sorts and conditions
of men. Now encouragement is not lacking even in this aspect of the case. Of all forms of Christianity, and of all ecclesiastical positions, the form and position of the National Church of England are those which may be looked to most reasonably and most hopefully to do the work which every Church has in charge to do. This is not an assumption; it rests upon facts; not only upon the facts of her primitive faith and apostolic order, but upon those also of her actual religious life; not only upon her amity and close conjunction with the State, but upon her earnest endeavour to discharge her office and execute her trust as the Church of all English people. The Church, that is, clergy and people, are beginning to rise more and more to the special exigencies of the position. There is the building and the restoring of churches within the last thirty years, a thing of perhaps unexampled extent; the clearing away of the square pews, and, both by arrangement of space and multiplication of services, the caring for the free and frequent worship of the people. There are many things, part of that worship, which tell of a truer and larger perception of privileges and duties. There is the building and the maintaining of schools with liberal assistance from the State. There is the more clerical life of the clergy, not as though many things in which they do not take part so much as heretofore are not lawful and innocent, but because their time and energies are not more than sufficient for their special work. There is the devotion of the lay life of men and women, and especially of women, to works of charity. There is the partial revival of the functions of the Church in Synod, attended with proof manifold that differences in theology and harshness of judgment between those who differ need not co-exist. And it is not only that men are not so divided as heretofore; they are acting in concert upon the basis of Church and State. Upon this basis we may all unite, but there is no other at once broad enough and sound enough. There is the drawing together and the better mutual understanding of clergy and laity. All these things are beginning to tell powerfully on our national condition.
But with all this there is no room for saying that the position is good; good as measured by what it ought to be and may be. There are many things still, some of them of long standing, which check and embarrass, in one degree or another, the development of the gifts and the power of the National Church; and, however unpalatable the ac
