January 9, 1820

January 9, 1820 - We have been gratified today by the exhbition of some of the works of God in the mighty deep, particularly the appearance of several whales, the first we have seen, a shark, and a multitude of porpuses.  But the manifestation of divine favor to sinners, the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ is still more interesting.  This is a favored Sabbath.  The comfort and aid of the Spirit seem to have been enjoyed by the covenant people of God, in good measure.  The broad and benevolent design of Christ's kingdom: the certainty of its universal prevalence, and the duty of promoting its interests were set forth in a sermon from John 10, 16 by Brother Thurston.  After a tossing boistrous week the Lord of the Sabbath speaks peace to the winds and waves and peace to our souls.
Lat. S. 40.  Lon. W. 50
