PREFACE.

TWO facts are clear : First, that nearly every Church
or Sunday-School, at some time or other, gives en-
tertainments of a literary character ; second, that
there is great difficulty in securing suitable material for
such purposes. The few available articles have been
worn threadbare, so that frequent inquiries have been
made for such a book as this.

" Sunday-School and Church Entertainments " is
therefore an effort to supply a recognized want. How
far it succeeds remains to be seen.

All the articles are new and original, and have been
specially prepared by a number of experienced writers.
In the selection of material three questions have been
asked: First, Is this suitable for Church purposes?
second. Is it of good literary merit ? third, Will it be
bright and attractive ?

We have satis>fit;c5 .piirselyes, on these points, and now
launch the wor]f;Viii.''^ts'/vi^'^^^^^^ t^4?^^^^^ will serve in
no small degree to .'relieve, ffie ^'EriVei- tainment Com-
mittee " of the hac vnf?yH»i ''iTiar^*=5' of duline&s.

It should perhaps t,€ r/Jde^ W&t an effort has been
made to furnish n3a\e.rij,i tbl^fhpycmous festivals of the
Church year, so that Christmas, Easter, Anniversaries,
etc., will not be without appropriate exercises.

In some cases familiar Bible stories, such as " Joseph
and his Brethren " and " Elijah and the Rain," have
been presented in dialogue form, thus still more popu-
larizing these deservedly favorite passages.

The Publishers.
