The Missionary Survey Box 1176, Richmond, Ya. What The Charleston General Assembly Said "From information before the Assembly, no similar conditions have ever prevailed in any country as prevail at the present time in certain countries of Europe,, and especially in Czecho-Slovakia. A thrilling opportunity is afforded our Church to aid in the establishment and en largement of the greatest work in the history of Protestant Christianity since the Reformation. "We offer the following recommendations: "1. That the Assembly express its appreciation to the Committee on Protestant Relief in Europe for its faithful service of love the past year, and that the Committee be continued for at least another year. That it put forth re newed efforts to adequately inform our people of the con ditions, needs and opportunities of European Protestant Christianity. "2. That the Assembly authorize the Committee to raise at least $60,000 foF its work the present year, and that out of this sum it appropriate whatever may be necessary up to $8,000 for the completion of the Memorial Church at Compiegne, the remainder to be divided between the work in France and Belgium and in Czecho-Slovakia, in such proportion as may be deemed wise by the Committee. "3. That the subject to be presented in our pulpits on Reformation Sunday, October 29, 1922, be 'The Return of John Huss to Czecho-Slovakia.' That on this day all of our pastors be urged to inform their people of the unprecedented conditions prevailing in that country, and a special effort made to secure a liberal offering for Pro testant Relief. "4. That the Committee be commended for its prac tical interest in the two army chaplains of our Church, and that it be authorized to grant $300 to each for equipment from the unexpended balance now in its hands. The remainder of this balance to be used in its work of relief. "5. That the Assembly has heard the address of Dr. James I. Good with profound interest and sympathy, and it is confident our people will claim a larger and more di rect share in the spiritual rehabilitation of European Pro testantism." Painter ? Barton ?
