"The Challenge which Rural Canada presents to the Canadian Church demands consideration, study and action. This little book is published and sent out by Wycliffe College with the purpose of emphasizing that urgency. The Reverend W.J. Zimmerman, Rector of Kerwood, Ontario, who has been undertaking post-graduate study in Rural Sociology and Religious Education at Columbia University has directed this publication. He secured contributions from a group of Canadian Churchmen who are aware of the claims and needs of Town and Country across the Dominion. -- Preface.

"The official voice of the Anglican Church of Canada on social issues from 1915 was the Council for Social Service. .... However, as social protest became more commonplace with the progress of the twentieth century and society's ills became more obvious, not all Anglicans were satisfied with what was later assessed as the passive role of the national Council. .... Some sought alternatives, and the Anglican Fellowship for Social Action (AFSA), which had its origin in meetings at Arundel, Quebec, in 1943, was such an alternative. .... Soon the Anglican Fellowship for Social Action had established branches in Toronto, Ottawa, New Jersey and Nova Scotia. It was vocal beyond its size: Rev. Russell Elliott in 1947 knew of only 49 full members. 'The Anglican Outlook' [the society's newsletter], as with the Arundel Conferences, provided a sense of identity" (p. 74-75). "AFSA Nova Scotia came into existence in June, 1946 ..." (p. 75). "In terms of social action, there was little short of civil disobedience in which the AFSA was not involved. They helped form buying cooperatives and organize union meetings. Mel French was deeply involved in the miners' union meetings. .... AFSA traveled, albeit cautiously, with the Canadian Cooperative Federation (CCF), with the attitude that 'the Socialism of heaven should be brought down to earth' and planned to make the best of their rural placements" (p. 80). "In 1948, the Lambeth League was formed by AFSA's most vociferous critics, who Canon French described as 'mainly laymen and clergy who were scared to death of us at Synod'" (p. 83). "One of AFSA's most central concerns was the development of clerical interest in the vitality of rural parishes. ... The Nova Scotia group aligned with the Rural Church Movement largely through the influence of John Peacock of Cowansville, Quebec" (p. 85-86). "Although several laymen became full members, and there were many sympathisers and like-minded people throughout the diocese, AFSA in Nova Scotia never grew beyond its original, and organically connected, handful of members" (p. 88).
Article divided into sections: Strategy and Tactics -- Opposition -- Rural Work -- Communists ? -- The End of AFSA.
Author is "Assistant at St. Barnabas Church, St. Lambert, Quebec". "This article is adapted from Chapter 3 of the author's M.A. Thesis, 'Divine Discontent: Anglicans and Social Change in Nova Scotia, 1945-1985', Anglican School of Theology, 1978" (p. 90).

"The present involvement of the Department of Christian Social Service in the rural work of the Canadian Church dates roughly from 1943 ...". "In the process of reassessing the goals and effectiveness of the rural program it seemed to be appropriate to convene a national conference of rural work leaders of the Canadian church. Early in the planning it was decided that this must be a working conference if it was to accomplish its objective of determining the present state of the rural program of the church and gain any clear insight as to the future direction it must take. Accordingly in November 1965, a Workshop dealing with the Work of the Church in the Rural Areas was held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Approximately eight-five people were in attendance representing twenty-four dioceses and three Departments of General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Protestant Episcopal Church U.S.A., the Roman Catholic Church and the United Church of Canada." "This Bulletin is a report of the pre-workshop materials, as well as the papers given, the findings and follow-up of the Workshop". -- Intro.

Contents: The Country Church and the Rural Problem / By the Rev. G.G. Wright, Rector of Navan, Ont.
"The years of warfare have served to place the importance of agriculture before the people of Canada with a clearness which a decade of writing on the subject could not have produced. .... The war has brought to people's attention the fact that the development of agriculture is fundamental to the national life, and that, for reasons which shall be noted later, the well-being of the farmer -- industrially, economically, socially, and in the religious sphere has a direct bearing on the development of every branch of the national life. The solution then of the rural problem is not a question which concerns only or even chiefly that part of the country but is of interest to everyone who has at heart the national well-being (p. 2)".

"For three years the Executive Committee of the Council for Social Service has been pressing the Executive Council of General Synod or (in 1949 General Synod itself, for some Canadian-wide policy to enliven and strengthen our rural Church work. .... What is the problem ? It is to create a rural-minded clergy, happy and content in their work, properly supported, ready to minister in rural areas for most or all of their active ministerial years. The problem is also to focus the attention of all members of Synod on the Church in rural areas so that they will honour the rural workers, see that they are adequately supported, and that, for example, their children are given an equal chance at education with their city cousins. It is primarily a psychological and a spiritual problem, nothing less than to help the rural parish and its leaders to help themselves and to lend a new tone to the rural Church ministry. This Bulletin is devoted chiefly to the two day Conference held at St. John's College, Winnipeg, September 12-13 [1950] under the auspices of a Committee of the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert's Land. That Conference was a success. It was informative and inspirational and we believe it will prove to be a forward step in the march toward the attainment of a General Synod policy on rural Church affairs". -- Foreword.

"The Commission of our Church dealing with the Church and Rural Work has been preparing this past year for a more general observance of the Sunday before the Rogation Days. The Bishop of Athabasca [Arthur Henry Sovereign, 1881-1966, a member of the Commission, wrote `that Rogation day should be seen not only to draw attention of all our clergy to the use of prayers for God's blessing on the seed sewn, but also as a day on which special emphasis and thought should be given to the town and country work of the Church throughout all the parishes of our wide Dominion'. `The season', he says, `calls for a widening use of Rogation Sunday for a purpose well justified and traditionally correct'." .... We believe that a more general observance of Rogationtide would ultimately have the effect of leading our people to a deeper sense of our dependence upon Almighty God for the necessities of life; it would also make us realize the needs and the possibilities for good of our many small country parishes. It would help all areas of society to realize more deeply the economic and social needs of the farming community. The Church before the Reformation said in effect, `Without a strong peasantry there can be no strong Church and no strong country'. In our day this means the farmer and their helpers. In the words on our study pioneer forefathers in Canada, `the farmers are the backbone of the nation'." At the request of the Rural Commission, we publish a form of service derived almost wholly from the Prayer Book, which might be suitable for use in parish Churches or the grounds pertaining thereto, particularly in a rural areas. We point out that there is no authority in the Prayer Book for the use of this form of service, but the Commission, we are informed, hopes that the Bishops will authorize it or something similar for use in the dioceses. It is published on behalf of the Commission on Rural Work. The prize for the Vernon-Woods Memorial Essay, sponsored by the Council for Social Service, for 1945 was won by Mr. George A. Young of Emmanuel College, Saskatoon. As it deals with the Rural Church and life, its publication in this Bulletin is appropriate. The Article, `Mechanizing the Ministry', prepared by a member of the Rural Commission, is challenging to the Bishops and to the missionary spirit of our whole Church." -- Editorial Note.
Contents: Editorial Note / W.W. Judd -- Religion and Daily Life : A Statement from the Commission on Rural Work -- Suggested Prayers and Readings for Rogation Observance -- Mechanizing the Ministry -- Part 2: The Church in Rural Life : The Church's Contribution to the Reconstruction of Rural Society : Vernon-Woods Memorial Essay, 1945 / George A. Young -- Pertinent Books in the Council's Library.
The article "Mechanizing the Ministry" is about the need for cars for rural clergy. "Now that the war is over there is probably no single problem of more pressing nature for the rural and missionary clergy than the problem of transportation".

Text
Whereas a situation has arisen in Canada in what is called the "fringe" area arising from the mingling of urban and rural populations as increasing numbers of city people find homes in rural communities, thus causing a ferment in church and community life because of differing experiences, ideas and attitudes;
And Whereas from this ferment on the "fringe" new and good things can come, and the Church should offer much needed leadership and guidance to the people concerned in these situations;
And Whereas of special concern under the general heading "fringe" are the "resort" areas, which have grown to tremendous proportions in many parts of the country;
And Whereas the federal, provincial and university authorities, through the "Resources for Tomorrow Conference" held in Montreal in 1961, have stated that by 1980 there will be a great increase in the recreational activities of Canadian citizens, and especially on weekends, intensifying the ferment in resort areas, and increasing the need for the Church's ministrations in these places;
Therefore Be It Resolved That the Council for Social Service be asked to make frequent surveys of the social conditions related to the situation in "fringe" and "resort" areas, so that the Church may be more aware of the trends in these areas, and enabled to act promptly and effectively to take advantage of the opportunities presented, for the glory of God and the extension of His Kingdom.
