Washington Sh, CHICAGO & THE RURAL CHURCH THE FARMERS THE CUSTODIANS OF THE NATION’S MORALITY. Co-operation of Church, School and Press Essential to Community Building. L3y Peter Radford. Lecturer National Farmers’ Union The church, the press and the school orm a triple alliance of progress that ;uides the destiny of every commun ty, state and nation. Without them ilvilization would wither and die and hrough them life may attain its great est bie:si:ig, power and knowledge, i he farmers of this nation are greatly ndebted to this social triumvirate for heir uplifting influence, and on behalf >f the American plowmen I want to hank th.se engaged in these high tailings for tlioir able and efficient service, and-1 shall ofrer to the press i series of articles on co-operation >etween these important influences r.d the farmers in the hope of in rcusing the efficiency of all by mu ual understanding and organized ef ort. We will take up first the rural fiiurch. The Farmers Are Greet Church Build ers. The American farmer is the greatest •hurch builder the world has ever mown. He is the custodian of the lation's morality; upon his shoulders e. Is the “ark of the covenant” and is is more responsive to religious in hume 03 than «tiiy other class of cit /.cm hip. The farmers of this nation bavo >uilt 120,000 churches at a cost of 750,000,000, and the annual contribu ion of the nation toward nil church nstitutlons approximates $200,000,00*) >cr annum. The farmers of the Unit *d States build 22 churches per day. There are 20,000,000 rural church com municants on the farm, and 54 per ;ent of the total membership of all diurehes reside in the country. The farm is the pc.ver-house of all •rogtess and the birthplace of all that s roble. The Gaud an of Eden was n the country and t ie man who would ;et clcse to God must first get close o nature. The Functions of a Rural Church. If the rural churches today are go ng to render a service which this age lemands, there must be co-operation ictween the r» iigious, social and eco \omic life of the community. The church to attain its fullest mea sure of success must < nrf‘h the lives *f the people in the community it ;ervcs; it must build character; devel op thought and increase the efficiency 7 human life. Tt must serve the so •ial, business and intellectual, as well s the spiritual and moral side of life, f religion, does not make a man mere •apable, more useful and more just, vlint good is it? We want a practical eligion, one wo can live by and farm by, as well os die by. Fewer and Better Churches. Hlessed is that rural community vhich lias but one pin '•a cf worship. While competition is the life of trade, it is death to the rural church and moral starvation to the community t*etty sectarianism is a scourge that bights the life, and church proju lke saps the vitality cf many com munities. An over-churched commun ty Is a crime against religion, n scri ms handicap to society and a useless . ax upen agriculture. While denominations are essenti.il nd church pride commendable, the : h teaching of univcisnl Christianity .mist prevail if tlio rural church is to ulfill ils mission to agriculture. We frequently have three or foui •Lurches in a community which is not able to adequately support one. Small congregations attend services once a month and all fail to perform the re ligious functions cf the community. The division of religious forces and the breaking into fragments of moral effort is ofttimes little than a calamity and defeats the very purpose they seek to promote. The evils of too many churches can be minimized by co-operation. The social and economic life of a rural community are respective units and cannot be successfully divided by de nominational lines, and the churches can only occupy this important field by co-operation and co-ordination. Tli* efficient country church will definitely serve its community by lead ing in all worthy efforts at community building, in uniting the people In all co-operative endeavors for the gen eral welfare of the community and in arousing a real love for country life and loyalty to the country home and these results can only be successfully accomplished by the united effort of ‘bp press. t!m schocl, the church ai d organized farmers. THE RURAL PASTOR Intelligent and Consecrated Leader* ship the r.'eed of the Hour. ✓ . _ . . j. F y Peter Radford Lceuuvr Xutioim.' Fanners’ Futon ' Tlio rural paster ha 3 greater possi bilities than any other factor in our , national life. Tho*" rural civilization •>; of the Twentieth Century Ims opened t:n a new world cf activities for him. There lio bafere him unexplored con , tinents of usefulness, unemployed I forces of civilization and tremendous responsibilities rrue/ti as have never before confronted the pastorate, j r rhe need cf the rural communities today is iatolllgcnfc and consecrated leadership. There must boa mnrshaN l!ng of forces that build life, strengtlu sn character and broaden vision. The past:r should, deal with living: prob lems. Tn addition to the service ho now renders he she** id help us dift Lho market basket, hold out a help ing hand to the farmer and develop .lie pctent’f.i energies cf the common ly ho seeks to serve. A Mora U'cf.il Ministry. Tho farmer needs the personal loach cf the paster. lie saldom ?omcs in direct contact with his hah owing influence, except when he is baptized, married and buried. We p.ocd to further c* tcnd Christian in- Puence in the homes, as well as to spread the gen pel in China; to in struct our children in the art of liv ing. as well as to convert the barbar ian and the Hottentot, anil we should devote our energy and talent to the solution of problems of our own lo cality, rather than consume our en ergies in fighting vice and ignorance beyond our borders. It Is as import rut that we discuss from the pulpit, the building of macadam highways Trcr.i the church to our homes, as th.aL wo preach of the golden streets zf tho Mew Jerusalem. It is as much a part of the duty of the pastor to pxhcit us to own a home while on earth S 3 to Inspire i:s to build a wan* sicn in the skies and that we should construct Christian character in our own community, nHlier than that we fight foreign sins in other lands. We want a religion wo can farm by as well as die by. Christian influence Needed. There is "ii emptiness in the life of rural communities and we want preachers who can weave Into the • ocial fibre, educational pastimes, profitable pleasures and instructive ; tniucemenfs. Too often we find the games of our young people a search Tor a suggestion iv. immorality and a stepping-stone to sin. The pastor should supervise the growing lives of young people, app-ove their amuse ments. create ex; cessions of joy and pleasure that make of Christian rharacter and blc.-i their lives with Christian modesty. The farm is the nursery of civili 7f.tioiwf.nd the parsonage of all re- Hgic.is denominations. Too long has the farm furnished tk * .cities with I lie Ir* great, preachers, until today the rural church is the gangway to city pulpits. The errrent should .be re versed. The power cf the pulpit is mest needed in the country where rbe fundamental forcc3 cf human life 1 originate. The farm i 3 the power house cf all progress and the birth place cf all tli.it i 3 nob! *. The Car don cf Eden was in the country and the man who would get to God must first get close to nature. Many communities are church ridden. Wr* frequently have three or f our churches ’ In a community with a circuit rider onco a month preaching to small eor.- ; grcgatlons and all fail to perform the religious functior.3 of th * community. In many instances, snore harmonious effort might result in a more efficient service. The division of religious forces and breaking into fragments cf moral effort ir ; ofttlmrs little less than a calamity and defeats the purposes they seek to promote, i A pastor in a neighborhood, study ing the economic, social, moral and educational problems of the commun ity, presenting fresh visions of poten tial possibilities and native power with beauty and new meaning, inter preting the thoi*ght-Ufe of the com munity and administering to their j daily needs, will contribute more to | ward the advancement of a locality than a dozen preachers who occupy I the pulpits at irregular intervals, ! preaching cn subjects foreign to the l*fe of the community. Church prejudice is a vice that caps much of the spiritual life of .a community, and wasteful sectarian ism is a religious crime against so ciety. Denominational reciprocity should take its place. Non-support of church Institutions and religious lethargy can often be traced to causes inherent with the church. There should be co-operation between churches and co-ordination of moral effort along economic and there must be if the rural churches of this state are going to render a service which this age demands.
