One of the .principal benefits which
result from a house to house canvass
is in the fact that it adds greatly 'o
the roll of the Sunday schools and this
is a very important thing. The import
ance of the Sunday school in church
work is dwelt upon at considerable
length in a current issue of the As
sembly Herald which fays that the
Sunday school is leading many men
and women into a study of the bible
and subsequently to joining a church,
who were it not for the Sunday school
would not be interested in church!
wo:k. the article says that the "Sun
day school is the church's best field
for work and the best force for service."
