Survey of Rural Community
1 A great forward movement :son among
, the religious organizations of America
In December 1918 the Interchurch World
Movement of North America was organ
■ ized by leaders of many of the denomina
■ tions in this country and Canada Its
i i first task was to find the facts concern
■ ; ing moral and religious conditions in this
1 country and abroad, wherever American
churches are at work. It is an attempt
. to see the whole undertaking that is be
: fore the church and to meet . unitedly
> so far as that’s possible. This nat an
r attempt to bring about union, but a lar
. ger cooperation.
In America the work is to be done in
- two divisions, rural and urban. \\ hile
surveys have been carried on before in
certain localities no such thoroughgoing
and extended inventory has ever been
1 taken. It is the aim of the movement
that every county in the country snail be
* mapped, showing every community, ev
‘ ery church with its parish, every school
’ where religious or social work is being
carried on, and every circuit A careful
1 study of the community and the urch,
from the moral, economic and social
L points of view is also being made.
