This periodical was founded by Lyman Beecher (father of Harriet Beecher Stowe) ". In The Spirit of the Pilgrims, a religious journal that Beecher founded in 1828, an anonymous author (likely Beecher himself) made the case this way: "The division of labor is the life of secular prosperity; and God, in his providence, avails himself of the same principle in permitting the existence of different denominations." The writer went on to express hope that soon "the entire zeal of Christian denominations will be turned away from the pitiful, selfish, irritating efforts to proselyte from each other; and will flow forth…to proselyte the world…" In other words, religious differences were valuable in that they represented a range of talents and "facilities for acquiring influence" in the United States and in the world."
