"Watchman, what of the night" as
to the Progressive Campaign? From
a knowledge of the results of the con
ferences in some of the Presbyteries
and in the Synods of Virginia and
from the spirit that is being mani
fested, I believe there is a deeper
quickening of the conscience of the
Southern Presbyterians, a greater and
better understanding of the relations
between God and the members as to
stewardship of life and property, and
a readier willingness to finance the
kingdom than ever before. The re
sults of last year's educational work

The title attractively and graphically
represents the theme of the sermon which
finds its subject matter in that wonderful
fourteenth chapter of John. The author
seems really to have caught that subtles
tender, comforting yet searching spirit
that breathes through the immortal word,
of the divine Master. There are other
sermons in the book quite up to the level
reached by the title sermon.

are being felt this year. There seems
to be heard the sound of abundance
of rain. There is the stirring in the
tops of the mulberry trees that is be

the members that will cause them to
bestir themselves as never before with
the blessed result that we shall reach
the goal and go over the top.
VIRGINIA 1*. 1?. P. CONFERENCE.
The 161 Presbyterian pastors who
attended the Inter-Church Conference
in Richmond last week spent a whole
morning in discussing the interests of
the Presbyterian Progressive Cam
paign. There were also several con
ferences of smaller groups of the cam
paign managers. These conferences
were under the direction of Rev. Wil
liam E. Hudson, Synodical manager.
No special action was taken, as
none was deemed necessary, but much
time was devoted to considering th?s
best methods for making the cam
paign a success. Encouraging reports
were presented from all over the State
showing what has been done and how
much interest has been awakened, in
dicating that the prospects are very
good for reaching the desired ends.
It was found that about half of the
churches would make their Every
Member Canvass in March and the
other half would do so in April.

accomplishment, spiritual, educational
and financial, which are justly to be an
Extent of Co-operntion. It is left
to each denomination to determine
the extent to which it will co-operate
in the financial campaign. If any de
nomination has obtained all the money
it needs for the next five years it
can enter on all the other phases of
the movement, if it so desires.
Enlistment. The Inter-Church
World Movement has planned a great
spiritual campaign for the purpose of
enlisting the entire life of conse
crated men and women, and of se
curing sufficient funds to carry the
entire World Movement program of
the evangelical' churches. Arrange
ments cover four-week periods of em
phasis on the work of ( 1 ) the Spirit
ual Resources Department; (2) the
Stewardship Department; (3) the
Life-Work Department. The World
Survey Conference recommended that
the whole period from January 9tli
until Easter be set apart for an evan
gelistic campaign, co-ordinated with
similar campaigns of the various de
nominations, and emphasizing th<?
work of the departments named above
in this general evangelistic campaign.
Churches Co-operating: No organ
ization except churches are included
in the movement. And none but
evangelical Protestant churches are
allowed to co-operate. Sometimes
representatives of non-evangelical
churches have attended conferences,
but they have not been given official
recognition. Nearly all of the larger
evangelical churches of this country
are co-operating in the Inter-Church
