Some of the local boys volunteered to help, including myself. The benches were connected in stacks, so it was hard work to lift or to push them away, but we managed it. Most of the church floor was covered with marble-type slabs, but under some benches there were just some ancient-looking bricks. We got really 3, as we had heard stories about an old underground passageway leading from a crypt below the church to the castle in the nearest city. It is twelve miles 4. So, a friend of mine and I started to dig down there.

Each of these books John Wesley conveyed to the little North American Methodist movement and conveyed at the point of the movement's becoming church. 4. See Carlton R. Young, Companion to The United Methodist Hymnal (Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1993), 94-95. And the camp meeting did suit Methodist polity-Methodist practice of church-quite nicely. Routinely in the nineteenth century, Methodists placed in a camp meeting their warm weather quarterly meeting.

I am a new clerk of session for a small Presbyterian church in Texas. I had ordered several books prior to this on, and Companion to the Constitution is much easier to understand.

big help for religious meetings

A wonderful resource for better understanding of the constitutions of the PCUSA. However, the references to the BOOK OF ORDER used are outdated- and do not reflect the current BO. With some cross referencing you can figure it out. Should this book be revised to reflect new reference numbers, I'll be first in line to buy a copy.

Insightful information on Church polity and proceedure. It allows one to use the Book of Order to further the ends of the particular Church with confidence and prayerful surety. I am buying this copy for a newly ordained elder.
