Peabody remarks on the current revival in his town, and mentions the crowds attending meetings at other churches. He seeks to explain the situation and give hope to his own congregation. He is not critical of the revival, but says they cannot participate with the other churches, and in fact points out the need of revival in their own congregation, and how to attain it.
