There are 20,000,000 rural church com

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

op thought and increase the efficiency

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

Puence in the homes, as well as to
spread the gen pel in China; to in
struct our children in the art of liv

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
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.
