Excerpt from The Church in Rural Community Living in the South: Report of the Church Committee, Second Southern Rural Life Conference

The first general work conference of the Southern Rural Life Council was held in 1943. The report of the conference was published under the title: The School and the Changing Pattern of Country Life. The second general work confer ence of the Council was held in 1946. Instead of publishing all of the committee reports of 1946 in a single volume as was done after the first conference, each committee report is being published separately. Separate publications should a'rd wide circulation and usability of the reports. It is to be hoped, however, that separate publications will not hinder the use of all the reports since one of the chief needs of community development is an integration of efforts of all inter ests and groups.

It is fitting that the first of the five committee reports to be published deals with the church and rural community living in the South. The church, the institution most com mon to rural neighborhoods and communities, has great responsibility and potential in?uence. The quality of the in?uence of the rural church, be it positive or negative, unifying or divisive, is a force to be reckoned with. The quality of living to be found in rural communities depends in no small degree upon the quality of the ministry and the program of the local church. This report attempts to pre sent the need for a philosophy of rural life; the responsibility of the rural church in a world of secular materialism; the function of the church; what the church is doing to improve the quality of living; barriers experienced by church leader ship; what church leadership can do to improve community living; and outstanding illustrations of community co operation.

The interest and financial assistance of the General Edu cation Board made possible the establishment of the Southern Rural Life Council and the publication of this report.
