Next November, in Carnegie Hall, New York City, there will be a notable conference. It will be an attempt, brought about by the National Federation of Churches and Christian Workers, to induce all the various denominations, acting for themselves, to form a general federation. The basis of the federation will not be on any creedal statement or governmental form, but of co-operative work and effort, particularly in such questions as marriage and divorce, Sabbath desecration, the social evil, Mormorism, child labor, the relation of capital and labor, foreign immigration, the bettering of the conditions of the laboring classes, the moral and religious training of the young, and evangelization. Expression will be given as never before to the substantial unity of the Christian Churches of the republic.
This visible expression of unity will emphasize the need and the opportunity for co-operation in securing the moral and spiritual welfare of the nation as a whole. Through federation the differences which exist between the churches will be acknowledged and realized as far less than their agreements, undue rivalry between the several denominational churches will be reduced to a minimum, and a conservation of resources, both of men and means in city work and foreign fields, will be effected.
There will be no interference with the autonomy of any church; co-operation is not incorporation. Over seventeen Christian denominations have either appointed or authorized the appointment of delegates to this conference. If all the Protestant churches are represented, the total delegates will be from six hundred to seven hundred, and will represent about twenty millions of church members and a majority of the Christian people of the United States.
