"THE Christian Church is divided into two, and only two, great classes - the ministry and the laity. The work to be done by them and the methods of usefulness are, for the more part, the same. The things to be believed and the things to be done for the maintenance of personal piety, and for the performance of both personal and social duties in doing good, are, with only slight variation the same. ... And yet there are assigned to these classes some duties which belong to them severally, duties which ministers may not neglect and which the laity may not assume."
