"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.

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".
