EXTRACTS FROM BISHOP BURNET'S PASTORAL CARE; WITH THE BISHOP OF ST. DAVID'S CIRCULAR LETTER TO HIS

CLERGY.

I. FROM CHAP. VIII.

"The clergy ought to contrive ways to meet often together, to enter into a brotherly correfpondence, and into the concerns of one another, both in order to their progrefs in knowledge, and for confulting together in all their affairs. This would be a means to cement them into a body."-(Sundry reafons are then adduced for fuch meetings, to which I refer you."

"Upon all thefe accounts it is of great advantage, and may be matter of great edification for the Clergy to enter into a strict union together, to meet often, and to be helpful to one another. But if this fhould be made practicable, they must be extremely strict in thofe meetings, to obferve fo exact a fobriety, that there muft be no colour given to cenfure them, as if these were merry meetings, in which they allowed themfelves great liberties. It were good, if they could be brought to meet to faft and pray."

"Four or five fuch meetings in a fummer would neither be a great charge, nor give much trouble; but the advantages, that might arife out of them, would be very fenfible."

2. FROM THE CONCLUSION.

"We are now brought very near the greateft crifis, that ever church or nation had. And if God fhould fo far punih us for our fins, for our contempt of his Gospel, and neglect of our duties, as to deliver us over to the rage of our enemies, we have nothing to look for but a perfecution more dreadful than any is in hiftory. Now, nothing can fo certainly avert [this,] as the ferious minding of our functions, of our duties and obligations, the confeffing of our fins, and the correcting of our errors. Nothing can fo certainly haften on the fixing of our tranquillity, and the compleating of our happinefs, as our lying often between the porch and the altar, and interceding with God for our people; and our giving

ourfelves

ourfelves up wholly to the miniftry of the word of God, and to prayer."

REV. SIR,

ABERGWILLY PALACE, Sept. 23, 1806.

A principal object proposed in the inftitution of the Society for promoting Chriftian Knowledge and Church Union in this diocefe, was to unite the clergy of the diocefe into " a religious and literary affociation," by means of monthly, quarterly, and annual meetings. You cannot have better authority for the duty and advantages of fuch union, than the judgment of Bishop BURNET, from whofe paftoral care I have selected the preceding extracts.

To give fuccefs and permanence to fuch meetings, we should provide business to occupy and intereft those who may be difpofed to meet for friendly and profeffional communication. In these momentous times, if no other employment for thefe occafions were propofed but PRAYERS for the Unity of the Church, for National Reformation, and for our own Succefs in the Miniftry of the Gospel, the meetings could not be faid to be without interefting occupation. But with this duty might be connected other fuitable and useful employment, fuch as reading and explaining fome portion of the Scriptures;-taking minutes of the distribution of pamphlets diûtributed by the Society;-reporting the local wants of particular parishes; the progrefs of Sunday edutation, &c. A book might be provided for each deanery, for the purpose of entering the minutes of the meetings. The courfe of bufinefs might be prefixed under fome fuch heads as follow:

1. Prayers.

2. Reading a chapter of the New Teftament.

3. Reading literary contributions, fuch as Corrections and Explanations of the Common Verfion of the New Teftament, felected from Hammond, Whitby, Doddridge, Pearce, Bowyer, &c.

4. Entering Minutes of the diftribution of Tracts, &c.
5. Minutes of Books and Tracts wanted for diftribution.
6. Minutes of hindrances to the Ministry.

7. Minutes of hints for forwarding the fuccefs of the Ministry. 8. Allot portions of Scripture to different Members for feles. tion. (See No. 3.)

9. Allot tracts for tranflation into Welsh.

A very great advantage deriveable from thefe meetings would be the opportunities which they will afford to young clergymen, of profiting by the experience, converfation, and advice of their elder brethren. It would add to the ufefulness of the meetings, if, by a small monthly contribution, or otherwife, one or two monthly religious publications were to be taken in for the conve. nience of the members.

I am, Rev. Sir,

Your affectionate friend and brother,

T. ST. DAVID'S.
