If You Are A Minister

Description

If You Are A Minister

WHEN you look down into the
faces of your congregation
on Sunday morning, does it
ever occur to you that wom-
en's place should be "at home"?
You never wish, do you, that women
had stayed away from the church?
Probably you think it would be bad
for both women and the church if the
women did stay away.

Don't you think it is equally bad
for women to be barred from political
life? When you go to the polls on
election day, don't you wish the
causes of righteousness could be as
sure of the same devotion as the
church is from women? You of all
persons have the least cause to be
afraid of women. If you believe in
woman suffrage, use your influence
for it.
