The social duty of the rural church Is as much a part of Its obligations as Its spiritual aide. In expressing Its social interest, the modem rural jchurch does not hesitate to claim that It is expressing a true religious in stinct and the old-time idea that the social Instincts should be starved while the spiritual nature waa over-, fed with solid theological food, is fast giving way Jo a broader interpret tlon of the functions of true religion. We take our place In the succession of those who have sought to make the world a fit habitation for the children of man when we seek to study and understand the social .duty of the' Tural church. The true christian re ligion is essentially social its tenets of faith being love and brotherhood and fellowship. While following after righteousness, the church must chal lenge and seek to reform that social order in which moral life la ex pressed. While cherishing ideals of service, the rural church which fcl tains the fullest measure of auccess is that which enriches as many lives as it can touch, and In no way can the church come in as close contact with its members as through the avenue of social functions. 1 The country town and the rural' community need a social center. The church need offer no apology for its ambition to fill this need In the com munity, if an understanding of Its mission brings this purpose into clear consciousness. The structure of a rural community is exceedingly com plex; It contains many social groups, each of which has it own center, but there are many localities which have but one church and although such a church cannot command the Inter est of all the people, It lg relieved from the embarrassment of religiously divided communities. Social Needs Imperative. The average country boy and girl have very little opportunity for real enjoyment, and have, as a rule, a vague conception of the meaning of pleasure and recreation. It is to fill this void in the lives of country youth that the rural church has risen to the necessity of providing entertain ment, as well as instruction, to its membership among the young. The children and young people of the church should meet when religion is not even mentioned. It , has been found safest for them to meet fre quently under the direction and care of the church. To send them into the world with no social training exposes them to grave perils and to try to keep thorn out of the world with no social privileges Is sheer folly. There is a social nature to both old and young, but the social requirements ot the young are imperative. The church must provide directly or indirectly some modern equivalent for the busk ing bee, the quilting bee and the sing ing schools of the old days. In one way or another the social Instinct of our young people must have oppor tunity for expression, which may take the form of clubs, parties, pic nics or other forms of amusement. One thing is certain, and that is that the church cannot take away the dance, the card party and the theatre unless it can offer in its place a sat isfying substitute in the form of more pleasing recreation. Universal Instinct for Play. In providing for enjoyment the church uses one of the greatest meth ods by which human society has de veloped. Association is never secure until it is pleasurable; in play the in stlnctive aversion of one- person for another is overcome and the social mood is fostered. Play Is the chief educational agency In rural commun ities and In the play-day, of human childhood social sympathy and social habits are evolved. As individuals come together in social gatherings, their viewpoint is broadened, their Ideals are lifted and finally they con stitute a cultured and refined society. It Is plain, therefore, that the cnurcn wiiicu aimB ai a perfected so ciety must use in a refined and ex alted way the essential factors In social evolution and must avail itself of the universal instinct tor play. If the church surrounds itself with social functions which appeal .to the young among its membership, It will fill a large part of the lamentable gap In rural pleasures and will reap the richest reward by promoting a higher and better type ot manhood and womanhood.
