Church Membership

In the earlier days of our movement it was no uncommon thing for those joining a branch church to make application at the same time for membership in The Mother Church. This commendable practice is approved by this Board and should be encouraged.

There is reason to believe that much good would follow if the duties and privileges of such membership and the readiness with which it may be attained were more generally understood. With some a simple reminder is all that is required, and to that end we would now commend the practice which some branches follow of announcing from the platform at the right season that application blanks for membership in The Mother Church may be had at the Reading Room or from the Clerk. The opportunity for a similar reminder is also before the practitioner when he is warranted in concluding that his patient is ready for this helpful and sustaining step.
