Excerpt from Wrentham Jubilee: A Sermon Preached in Wrentham, Mass., June 12, 1849, by Rev. Elisha Fisk, on the Fiftieth Anniversary of His Ordination, as Pastor of the Original Congregational Church in Said Town Peter was an apostle and minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. The text brings before us some of his views and feelings as such. They were, his own decease, his regard for those to whom he ministered, and his desire to be useful to them after he should be taken from them into ather scene of existence. The means by which he would accomplish the end were, rehearsing and com mitting to writing the things which they had seen and heard, more especially, during his ministry. He did t believe that they were things which had had their day and were more to be regarded, but were still to be held in remembrance, for instruction and Spiritual benefit. This desire was t peculiar to the apostle. Bunyan, and Baxter, and Newton, and Luther, and Doddridge, and Edwards, and Fuller, and others, long since dead, had the same desire. Hence, the printed works which follow them, and will prolong their usefulness in ages yet to come. Though the witnesses die, their testimony lives. The views and feelings of the apostle should be mine today. I must depart. My heart's desire should be to leave a blessing behind me for those with whom I have been associated in near and sacred relations.
