LOOK­ING BACK

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ISLAND WEEKEND -

Pam­pered preach­ers In the early years of the South Lake Church, the church re­lied on the ser­vices of vis­it­ing preach­ers. A let­ter writ­ten by vis­it­ing preacher Hi­ram Wal­lace, taken from church records, il­lus­trates how well preach­ers were wel­comed into the com­mu­nity: “I will re­mem­ber that there were no places on the Is­land or else­where I en­joyed a few weeks preach­ing and vis­it­ing as much as South Lake,'' penned Wal­lace. “The hos­pi­tal­ity of the peo­ple was re­mark­able. It didn’t seem to mat­ter if it was a day or a week; no pay­ment given or ex­pected. It was well that it was so for very few preach­ers re­ceived much money for their work.'' the Culi­nary In­sti­tute of Canada and the pro­grams of­fered?
