Our New Departure free pdf Excerpt from Our New Departure: Or, the Methods and Work of the Universalist Church of America, as It Enters on Its Second Century This book was planned early in 1871, and was to have been published a few months after. I regret that it could not have been so published. But under the peremptory order of my physician, I was compelled as nearly as possible to suspend all mental labor during the fall and winter of 1871-72, and much of the ensuing spring. In August following, my eyes failed, and during the autumn and early winter, when I had hoped to finish the work, no reading or writing was permitted me. Except for these causes, the book would have appeared much closer upon our Centenary Year, and ere the leading title had become so nearly hackneyed. But though the title - selected, I may be excused for saying, a considerable time before I had ever seen it used in such an application - has lost in freshness, it has lost nothing in significance- and though our Centenary is three years behind us, we are still so on the threshold of our Second Century, that the book is no less appropriate as an attempt to indicate something of what our methods and work should be as we enter upon it. I make no apology for these pages. For nearly forty years, a humble participant in our church-work, I have been not only an observer, but a student of our denominational life - our condition, hinderances, needs, prospects. I have watched events, and tried to trace effects to causes. These pages record my conclusions - conclusions carefully, some of them, unwillingly, reached. I wish the presentation had been better done. But for the conclusions themselves, I plead neither explanation, nor excuse. They are, I believe, in the main, impregnable. As such, it is my profound conviction, they are what Universalists need, beyond everything else, solemnly to ponder. They indicate, I am satisfied, alike the explanations to be considered so far as we have failed to witness the practical religious results we had a right to expect, and the conditions upon which alone any vitalizing and saving influence is possible to us. These being my convictions, I have uttered them as I have- "according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken." And having so written, I lay this book as an unpretending offering on the altar of our Faith, to suggest what, as it seems to me, the further growth and power of our Church demand. I solicit for it the consideration to which it is entitled by virtue of the importance of the interests it concerns. The offspring of no hasty impulse, or immature thinking, I ask that it be dealt with in no hasty or superficial way.
