The Branch Churches and Societies

INQUIRIES continue to come to us as to whether the branch churches and societies are under obligation to follow exactly the order of exercises in the Mother Church at the

Wednesday evening meetings. We have repeatedly heretofore endeavored to point out to the Field the fact that while it is desirable to conform as nearly as may be to the order obtaining in the Mother Church, for the purpose of securing that unity which is so desirable, yet reference must necessarily be had to the local conditions surrounding the branches. In a recent number of the Sentinel we referred to this, and suggested that in places where the attendance was small and the number of testimonies few, the extra time might well be occupied by reading articles and testimonies from our periodicals.
