Excerpt from Of the Light of Nature: A Discourse
Dr. William Gouge, in an address to the Christian reader, prefixed to the seventh edition of the Treatise on Faith, says Of his uncle, that God sent Ezekiel Culverwel, as of old he sent Ezekiel Buzi, to Set forth the promises of God more plentifully and pertinently than ever before; and that to breed faith where it is not, to strengthen it where it is weak, to settle it where it wavereth, to repair it where it decayeth, to apply it aright to every need, to extend it to sanctification as well as to justification, and to point out the singular use of it in matters temporal, spiritual, and eternal.' What I say of him, I know of him for from mine infancy have I known him, and under his ministry was I trained up in my younger years, he being at least two-and-twenty years older than myself.' Among other evidences of the power of God's word among them (mr. Culverwel's people), I will record one, a very remarkable one, and. Worthy to be had in more frequent use. It was this: In time of great dearth of corn and other food, there was order taken by public authority, that every family should forbear one meal in the week, and Upon the Lord's day bring the value of it to the collectors for the poor. This being faithfully performed by them all, therewith they did provide good corn, which cost eighty-nine shillings the bushel, and sold it to the poor at twelvepence the peck.
