Pastoral Letter of the Right Rev. William Meade : Assistant Bishop of Virginia, to the Ministers, Members, and Friends, of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia, on the Duty of Affording Religious Instruction to Thoses in Bondage
Excerpt from Pastoral Letter of the Right Rev. William Meade: Assistant Bishop of Virginia, to the Ministers, Members, and Friends, of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia, on the Duty of Affording Religious Instruction to Thoses in Bondage There was, however, a subsequent resolution and request of the Convention, which I dared not then discourage, and must not now neglect. I am thereby called upon to address a Pastoral Letter to the Churches, on one important and interesting topic, which was brieﬂy, though earnestly, pressed in the discourse referred to: I mean the application of the blessed word of God, to a large and destitute por tion of our fellow creatures - those who are in bondage to us. Sure ly it was the good spirit of him who has told us to render that which is just and equal to our servants, remembering that we, also, have a Master in Heaven, which put it into my heart to propose this subject; and which opened the hearts of those who heard it, to de sire, that for their benefit, and the benefit of others, I should dis course further about it. It is the same spirit which is every where leading the humane and pious to consider what can be done for the real benefit of this class of our fellow beings. May it be with me while I write, and with you while you read these lines, and then con strain us all to go and do to others, as we would they should do unto us in like circumstances.
