Dr. Chapin

by | Jun 9, 1998 | Worship

On a certain occasion, the eloquent Dr. E. H. Chapin, being sick, was compelled to ask a friend to preach for him. As the stranger rose to announce the opening hymn, a score of persons rose to go out. This clergyman also was equal to such an emergency.

“All,” he said, “who came here to worship Dr. Chapin will please leave now; but those who came to worship God will sing the forty-third hymn.” That stopped the exodus.
