Western Christian Advocate (Newspaper) - July 12, 1922, Cincinnati, OhioErnest c. Wareing editor Stiitt 10 1o00 published weekly by Stanley w. Wiant assistant a Lillin Nall cd Lulu j Uler a a y a a the methodist Book concern methodism a future at stake never before in the history of the methodist episcopal Church has its leadership been called upon to face a situation so grave or an Opportunity so great As were presented to the Council of boards of Benevolence at its recent meeting in Chicago. From june 1, 1921, to june 1, 1922, there was a shrinkage in the payments of Centenary subscriptions of approximately $2,000,000 Over an already tragically declining income of the previous year. This serious diminishing of resources constitutes a direct blow at the heart of the missionary Enterprise of methodism. Already the crippling effects of loss in income Are beginning to appear in the Case of returned foreign missionaries who cannot be sent Back to their Fields for Lack of funds in the discouragement of life service recruits and in the half completed Church Hospital and College buildings both at Home and abroad. We must not permit the spiritual life of the Church to be menaced by a Cooling missionary enthusiasm. So critical Are the conditions methodism now faces that by special action of the Board of Bishops and at the request of the corresponding Secretary of the committee on conservation and Advance Bishop Edwin h. Hughes and Bishop Fred b. Fisher have been assigned to special service to co operate with Bishop Thomas Nicholson chairman of the committee in a most Earnest Endeavor to awaken methodism to the appalling Peters denial emergency6 present it must not come to this in the Centenary within the next few months the shrinkage of $2,000,000 must be raised. Every pastor and Layman must be enlisted. Subscriptions due simply must be paid. It is the hour not Only for heroic Endeavor but also for genuine sacrifice. In the words of one of the most farsighted of our Bishops a the future usefulness of the Church for a generation depends just now upon its financial response during the next few in the name of the Christ we serve we Call methodists to immediate and decisive action that defeat May be turned into Victory. Statement ordered by the Council of boards of Benevolence of the methodist episcopal Church
