Yet, glories revealed to us in the great Conflict are being clouded by drifts, of class-hostility, mutual suspicion and cynical materialism. The world is troubled. Old conceptions are giving to new. Yet, God remains, firmly grounded on the great principle of love. It Jias the one remedy for a world on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Five Christian Communions-Anghcan, Baptist, Congregational, terian-call their various constituencies and the whole naWm to Christianity. They arc making a great financial appeal .It is fitting that the'reasons. 1 The Decline of the Dollar .The sharp rise in prices the world over has affected in jur- iqusly the position or every man working for a fixed salary! Mis- sionaries are in this' category. Stipends that were ample- in 1900, and nearly ade- quate in 1912, are utterly insufficient in 1920. There has been no general increase in these stipends. There cannot be, until the Canadian people scale-up their giving to balance the decline in purchasing-power of the Canadian dollan International exchange has unstable. Money for :e xport has been subject to heavy dis- counts. In view also of the increased cost materials and of labor, any new building pro- out- of the question. need for" new buildings is imperative. missionaries are living iri c] ay-floored huts Some New Standards are Necessary 'The Anglican Synods, the Bap- tist Conventions, the Congrega- tional Union, the Conferences, and the Presbyterian General Assembly, have set new standards for the salaries 'Clergymen actively engaged in Canada. fBut, for the Missionaries, arid for the Su- perannuated "Minis'ters, no increases have been possible. One of the aims of the Forward Movement is to show the fine-spirited, generous, Christian peo- '..ale of Canada that the old standards of giving for Missions must be revised. It is impossible to main- tain existing stations, even on a pre-War basis, without more men and much more revenue. The Unity of Faith and Prayer 2 The Call from Abroad .Coincident with this financial difficul- new ?nd opportunities tor tne extension of Christian teaching have ap- peared. In India, literally millions of "outcastes" are pleading for Millenary- preachers and doctors. In China, a new National spirit has been born. Missionary teachers are urgently required to help form- ulate the National system of education. Hospitals, Missionary nurses, doctors and dentists, are heartily welcomed by the peo- ple. .From Japan, Africa and the Islands of the Sea, comes the same story. mi.
