The Lantern of Light. Chapter Seven: What Is the Material Church, With Her Ornaments.

The second church is the coming together of good and evil, in a place that is allowed, far from worldly occupation. There sacraments should be ministered, and God’s law both read and preached. In this place our gracious Lord heareth our prayers in special manner, and boweth his ear to his servants, as he granted to Solomon, 1 Kings 9. 2 Chronicles 7. Mine eyes, saith God, shall be open, and mine ears shall be lift up to the prayer of him that hath justly prayed in this place. And this is called a material place, for it is made by man’s craft, of lime, of timber, and of stone, &c.
