Twenty-Five Years of Religious Life in Bloomington

Excerpt from Twenty-Five Years of Religious Life in Bloomington The following address was prepared by J. H. Gilliland for the Seventy-Fifth Anniversary services of the First Christian Church. It was to have been delivered on Sunday evening, April 21st. On Saturday, April 20th, while giving a final revision to the manuscript, Mr. Gilliland sustained a stroke of paralysis that rendered him speechless and helpless. Sunday evening a vast and grief-stricken audience gathered at the First Church, the congregations of the First, Second, Centennial and Normal Christian Churches uniting in a never-to-be-forgotten service. Mr. Gilliland's paper was impressively read by Milo Atkinson, pastor of the Centennial Church. The solemn circumstances that made it necessary that another should read Mr. Gilliland's paper, together with the intrinsic worth of the address, made the occasion impressive beyond description. Mr. Gilliland lingered till Friday, April 26th, when a second stroke finished an earthly ministry unparalleled in this community for substantial accomplishments in the kingdom of God. From the first, it was felt that this address should be preserved in permanent form. After Mr. Gilliland's death it seemed wise and proper that the account of the funeral with the addresses should be included in this volume. It is confidently believed that the wide circulation and reading of this mighty message will but confirm among many the opinion long held by those who knew J H. Gilliland intimately, namely, - that he was a great preacher, a far-seeing prophet, a veritable statesman, in the affairs of the kingdom of God.
