Famous quotes containing the word congregation:

    re-enact at the vestry-glass
    Each pulpit gesture in deft dumb-show
    That had moved the congregation so.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    This most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave
    o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with
    golden fire, why, it appeareth nothing to me but a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    In 1862 the congregation of the church forwarded the church bell to General Beauregard to be melted into cannon, “hoping that its gentle tones, that have so often called us to the House of God, may be transmuted into war’s resounding rhyme to repel the ruthless invader from the beautiful land God, in his goodness, has given us.”
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
