Item of Interest
The recent meeting of churches of greater New York to bring about cooperation in lifting the debt of local churches still encumbered may naturally cause inquiries from other localities as to the best means of procedure to accomplish desired results.
After the churches of any state or city unite in concluding which of their number first needs to receive their contributions, no other concerted action is necessary. The funds may thereafter be sent directly to the Treasurer of the church being assisted and not to any intermediary committee or organization. It would seem wise that there should be no central fund to be disbursed by designated representatives, but that each church should independently send its contributions to the one all are helping at the time, unless they should, for good reason, prefer to send to another church similarly situated.
Neither, we believe, should there be any restriction placed upon the manner in which contributions shall be expended. The church contributing has made its demonstration in the act of giving. The church receiving should be allowed freedom in making its demonstration as to how to apply what it receives towards the liquidation of its indebtedness, incidental to the dedication of its edifice.
