Excerpt from The Community Church: A Probable Method, of Approach to and Bases for Deminational Unity This study of the community church considers one of the vital and most important problems confronting the church today, i.e., that of deminational unity. This problem is t new, having been before the church for some centuries. Some incidents in connection with the recent war brought this problem into the ascendancy and made it necessary for the church to consider it anew. American society is passing through a tremendous social revolution. Many significant changes are taking place. Among them are the increasing urbanization of population; co-operative organization among farmers; widespread organization of labor; the movement for profit-sharing in business and the democratization of industry; the enfranchisement of women; their entrance into the professions of industry; the increase of divorce; the increase of government supervision and control of industries and public utilities; the growth of the spirit of internationalism; and the changing point of view of the church from individual to social salvation. So far-reaching has this revolution been, so great have been the changes in connection with the war, that all the social institutions which have survived are compelled to consider themselves anew in relation to the present existing social situation and that of the future.
