I'VESDIT OF KNOWLEDGE
ING, NOVEMBER 27, 1868.
Delivered at the laying of the Corner Stone
of the new Presbyterian Church, in Belle
fonte, by the Rev. Alfred Youmans, Pas
tor of the Church.;
We are here this day to consecrate the
foundation of a christian temple. It is no
mean honor that the Lord puts upoh a peo
ple in permftting them to build a house for
his praise, hi which we humbly' hope he
will cause, his name to dwell.
In this act we 'symbolize the consecration
of the labor of our hands to the service of
the LOrd. - We'begin the erection o'f these
walls with the, solemn declaration' of our
faith in the God that built the universe,.
and withoutwhose presence and blessing,
they labor in vain who build the house.—
We invoke the tavoirbf heaven upon an en
terprize as we trust, with some
sense ape exalted,privilege,:to'whiCh we
are called,' and" Which we pray' iiaa:y be
prosecuted in tlie . fear, and to the clory , of
the Lord. • • • •
The thoughts Nilll naturally revert upon
such an oeCaAien tOthat corner stone which
the great builder'of the spiritual temple has
laid. "Behold I lay in Zion a chief corner
stone, elect,. precious, and he that belleveth
on him shall' not be confounded. • • •
To whom coming as unto • a living stone;
disallowed indeed of Me* but chosen of
God, and precious, ye alSO:as lively stones,
are built up a spiritual house, *a
hood, to offer spiritual sacrifices, accepable
to God by Jesus Christ.",
Christ, the great head stone of the cor
ner, is the foundation upon which believers
are builded as a temple where the glory of
God shall shine as the shekinah in the holy
The corner stone is the chief foundation
stone of the edifice. It is provided with
reference to the bearing of . a heavy presure
from the superincumbent masonry.
wall is built upon it, and it must 'bear the
weight of it. So Christ was provided to
bear the burden of his people. Arid how
- the load he bo- ! llis nle
heavenward in strength and symmetry and
beauty, us the walls of a spiritual temple.—
Other foundation can no man lay, and they
who build not upon this, are building in
the sand, and shall surely be brought to
shame when the flood shall come.
As we have placed this stone in its ap
propriate position, so let us ever place the
Lord Jesus as the chief corner of our en
terprise. Let what shall here be done, be
done for him, and to him and in him. Let
his glory be our aim and his spirit our
strength, and our perpetual guide.
The corner stone, as resting directly
upon, or constituting a part of the founda
tion, is the symbol of immobility. And
whether we understand Christ himself, or
the faith which makes him ours, as intend
ed by the rock upon which his church is
built, in either case the foundation is
equally unmoved. The christian's unshaken
hope is due to his immovable faith, and the
stability of his faith is due,to the furriness
of its foundation. For, like the walls of
this edifice, it rests upon living rocks. And
this faith mybrethren is the immovable rock
the only unshaken corner stone for the
hopes of the world. Confusion ever worse
confounded comes of building on anything
besides. But storms of offliction, descending
rains, or blowing winds, or pouring floods
of tribulation may beat upon the christians
house, yet built upon faith, his expectation
shall never fail.
The corner stone is the symbol of 'unity,
Ordinarily, as the name implies, it belongs
at the meeting place of twowalls.lt is used
o bind or tie the walls together. And it
may therefore represent to us that unity
which Christ establishes and commends
among his people. The spirit of Jesus in
the world is the great principle of unity.—
And the association founded upon it is the
dearest, strongest, and most sanctifying fel
lowship on earth ; nay, it is the fellowship
of heaven. And so far as fellowship enters
into the joy of the celestial kingdom,heaven
is begun on earth in christian brotherhood.
Tell us not of another, or a better brother
hood thau this ! Here is the true field for
good Samaritan deeds. Here is the gen
uine bond of neighborly help, and brother
ly love ; a universal charity which makes
the whole world akin! Unlike some
brotherhoods of human establishment,
gathering into secret conclave a sworn com
panionship; and within this restricted cir
cle alone exercising their kind offices,—
unlike to such, the brotherhood of Christ
reaches the arm of help and sympathy far
as the",cuse of want and sin has ravaged
God's fair creation. Who have a right to
call each other brethren, but they who are
begotten of the same Father, begotten anew
unto good works of brotherly love ?—born
of the same mother,—the church, the bride
of Christ, "Jerusalem which is above,which
is the mother of us all."
; ever go
be put in
This spirit of unity is the ground of a
mutual dependence. The several stones in
a wall retain their place, and serve their
special purpose only through the help of all
the rest. When one is displaced, to that
extent the masonry is weakened and the
excellence of the whole temple is marred.
So, my brethren, let us be reminded how
we must stand together, if we stand at all,
n the spiritual house of Jehovah's praise.
iNo association whether of heart or of
hands, so essential as this to a common
weal ! None so. lasting and pure in its
bonds! None so helpful, so exhilarating
and sanctifying in its communion ! It i s
this spirit of the Lord that organizes indi
vidual efforts, gathers the scattered tribute
of the people, and builds them np in great
and honorable works for the gloryfying of
his grace. It is thus, we hope that has
united our efforts in this most excellent
work of realing a temple to the Lord.
Nor is there another such mighty organ
zer on earth as this. No such temples as
those which religion builds, have ever risen

ito command the admiration of the ages.—
There are monuments, it is true, which
show an organizing power in human des
potisms. But more beautiful. than the

As, therefore, we fitiol . . - - 'ebrner stone
to-day, let it suggest to us llot only our de
pendence upon Christ as our only founda
tion, but also our niutual and relative
duties of help and comfort. Let the
spirit of him who sought not his own but
others good, banish all dissention, sweeten
all bitterness, heal all grievings, forbid all
etrifes and envies, mortify all pride and

• corner stone which God has laid in Zion,
But the corner stone is not only for use,
ft' is also for ornament. It is usually an
"elect; and costly" stone, chosen for sightli
ness, and 'chiseled with more than ordinary
care, and often decorated With skillful carv
ing. So let it remind us of those graces of
character which are the true ornament of
the cluistian church. Here again Christ is
the Chief corner stone • of all the temple;
th e pattern as well as the • founda
tion of all that is good, beautiftil or tme in
human character. And as this stone is
placed to beautify the wall, so let Christ be
fixed. in the heart that he may constitute
the trim ornament of the life. According
as the christian possesses more or less of
the sphit t of his master, will his life on egrth
be more,or less adorned with those graces
of meelaiess, temperance, patience and god
liness, which command the love of the
good, and•even extort the respect of the
By laying this stone with religious rites,
We-consecrcdo in advance the work of ou,r
hands to the service and the glory of our
God. What more noble work on earth
than that of building a house for the Lord?
The house of Goa! How suggestive the
name. What a homelike sound it has
Literally covering a shelter for the Lord,
provided in order that he may be benced
to dwell in our midst. Sometimes commu
nities emulate each . other in offering in
ducements to distinguished men to come
and live among them, that their fame may'
shed ia luster on the region where they'
make their home: Sometimes a town or
.city, Will build and furnish an elegant man
sion and present the title deeds as a free
gift to some high personage upon condition
that he will come and list in it. A similar
act, upon an infinitely higher scale, we are
'doing here. Wo would have the King of
heaven make his home with us: • We ap
preciate the honor of such a presence. We
feel the security of such a nearness to the
hiding place of almighty power. - We woid4
testify the earnestness of mil. desire that
God would dwell among us here, by the
measure of our gifts for the strengthening
and garnishing of his habitation. And
when these walls shall, have risen from cor
ner stone to coping, we shall dedicate the
house not only as a thank-ollbring
of our hand's but as including also the title
deed of gratett hearts. It is thus, in acts.
like this, thatwe should be ever trying to
give ourselves to him in whom is vested all
propriety in heaven and on earth.
Let us then build a home that, so fitr as
we can make it, shall be worthy of apng.
Bring hither the workmanship of cum - flan..
hands. Here let art pile up her..trophies,
and devote them to the service •of a pure
religion. The fine arts have a true and
proper place among the instruments
moral culture. Music charms the soul into
the admission of sentiments which mere
statements in words wild& commend in
vain.. Eloquence, with truth in solution,
carries it to the seat of reason with ten fold
power. The atmosphere aerializes water
and then carries it wherever itself can pen
etrate. So art dissolves virtue in beauty,
and prepares it to penetrate wherever the
beauty itself can find admission. The
whole process of true culture, were any,
thing is &night beyond the mere drilling of
the logical faculty, is carried on by the ac
tion and reaction of human nature and
human art. We live in the days of the
vival of religious art from the dark ages of
idolatrous corruption. Behold a protestant
intelligence and purity taking back by slow
and cautions degrees this long prostituted
help to moral culture, and infusing old
forms with its new spirit. Even the solemn
organ rolls its harmonious echoes amidst
gothic arches and ceilings of fresco, to as
sist the devotion of some of the purest of
our protestant worship.
Then let the house of God be garnished
with the choicest skill which generous hearts
can bring to their assistance. Gather
here "the first of the first limits of the
land," till Mount Zion shall become, tiq it
ought to be, the cynosure of art and the
glory of the whole earth. Let these walls
and towers, adorned with costly labor,
stand not merely as places of convenience
for ourselves, meeting houses for our per
sonal comfort, but let them constitute what
they truly ought to be, a monument . to
Christ, built as it were over the tomb of a
dead yet ever living savior. Shall the chis
el of the sculptor .be employed by mot._
tal afibetion to pile upon the burial place Of
its departed idols the gathered wealth of a
lite-time,that thus it may attest the love of
man to man, and shall not the gratitude of
hearts redeemed strive as best it can to
memoralize the love of God to a lost and
ruined world ? Let this building be She
pledge of our:desire and purpose to life for
Him whose are the gold and silver of all the
earth. Let the "glory of Libation come
unto Mount Zion, the fir tree, and the pine
tree, and the box together, to beautify the
place of God's sanctuary, and to make ftto
place of his feet glorious." And beleive it,
my brethen, in so doing, you are not spend

What better use can we make of our sub
stance, than by its help to testify, in what
way we can, the value we put upon our
religious principles? When without re
serve we shall be ready thus to consecrate
ourselves to Him who has redeemed us,
not with corruptible things, as slim; and
gold, but with precious blood—then may
we stand fast in our assurance of blessings
from the God and Father of all, who Is
the begining and the end of all our works
on earth, and of our life itself—Mio is the
sun of our system, the glory of our prosper
ty, the stability of mu• times and the strength
of our salvation.
