RAVENSBOURNE CHURCH AFFAIRS.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I understand the Presbytery are to meet in the church to-night to moderate in a call to the Rev, A. M'Kenzie, I trust they will well consider the matter before taking the responsibility of oiling Mr M'Kenzie to such a divided congregation the great majority of whom have ceased to subscribe to the sustentation fund, and will not resume their subscriptions until the question of what wine is to be used at the future communions has been submitted to and decided upon by the congregation. What an absurd proposal is that of providing two tables! lam astonished that men professing to have any common sense should entertain the proposal for a moment. As far as I can hear, those who introduced this trouble into the church are likely to have it all their own way to-night, as the other party, or “ old lights,” will not inteifere in the proceedings, and will not therefore be responsible for the injustice of calling a minister to such a disorganised charge • —I am, etc., An Adherent.
Rothesay, September 30.
