18 DANA Have the Churches the presence of Christ? A Sermon, Addressed to the

DANA, DANIEL. Have the Churches the presence of Christ? A Sermon, Addressed to the Presbytery of Londonderry. At their Semi-annual Meeting, Bedford, (N.H.,) April 30, 1851. By Daniel Dana, D.D. Published by Request of the Presbytery. Newburyport: [MA] Moses H. Sargent, Huse & Bragdon, Printers. 1851. Octavo. Disbound pamphlet side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing, the number "3" in old pen at top of title. Collation: 1-44. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-32pp. OCLC locates 11 libraries with this title. Daniel Dana (1771-1859) Presbyterian minister, pastor in Newburyport, Ma., for 26 years, then president of Dartmouth College for a short time. He became pastor in Londonderry, but in 1826 became pastor of the Second Presbyterian church at Newburyport, resigning in 1845 in the seventy-fifth year of his age. "Dr Dana was regarded as `one of the most able, devoted, and useful ministers of the period in which he lived."--McClintock & Strong: Cycl. Bibl., Theol., & Eccl. Lit. II:656. We offer his sermon on Matthew 9:15 "Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then they shall fast." Dana reframes the text "Do our churches and the churches generally, enjoy the spiritual presence of the Savior?" He laments the loss of the presence of the Spirit in the churches and delineates practices that need to be reformed, including loss of reverence for the Sabbath, sitting while in prayer (instead of standing), the world impressing its character upon the church instead of the reverse. He deplores the modern idea of sin--that it consists of action, that "no one is subject to divine displeasure and condemnation, till they are incurred by actual, voluntary transgression of known law."--p.14. "The sinner is viewed, not as passing through a painful process of conviction... but as coolly comparing the happiness to be found in God, with that to be found in the world, and as making his choice accordingly.

"His pen was active in all the religious controversies of his day, and indeed his ability to define authoritatively such a variety of theological issues led Dr. Erskine of Edinburgh to remark that the British Isles had produced no such critics on Divinity in the eighteenth century as Dickinson and Edwards."--Dict. of Amer. Biography, V:301-2. Dickinson was a staunch supporter of Whitfield's revival efforts and intimate friend of David Brainerd. Sprague: Annual Amer. Pulpit, III:16 states "It may be doubted whether, with the exception of the elder Edwards, Calvinism has ever found an abler or more efficient champion in this country, than Jonathan Dickinson."
