This General Synod Commends the ARDA program to all rural clergy and parishes and urges them to involve themselves creatively in such local programs as a fitting channel for the exercise of Christian Service. CARRIED in both Houses.

"'The Architecture of Rural Society' consists of a series of lectures delivered at King's College, Halifax, N.S., to mark the establishment of the HacKenley Memorial Foundation in Rural Sociology. The lectureship memorializes a former Archbishop of Nova Scotia, the Most Reverend John HacKenley, D.D., whose devotion to the well-being of the rural population was so great that his name has already become a tradition in that Province". -- Preface.
"At the request of the Memorial Committee the inaugural lectures have been put in a permanent and somewhat abbreviated form in the hope that they may perform a useful service as orientation material for those who may attend subsequent courses under the auspices of the Foundation. .... They contain the mature thinking of a longtime professor of Sociology at King's College and one who has had unusual opportunity for research in the field of rural society". -- Preface.
