Moors, Grindall Reynolds, and Francis B. Hornbrooke, prepared and printed a pamphlet on The Organization of Parishes and Churches. In the Annual Report of the Association in May, 1900, it was pointed out that this pamphlet was both out of date and out of print, and that there was a rational demand for a carefully prepared manual for the facilitating of the organization of new churches on the principles of our order, and for the guidance of ministers and parish committees in the conduct of the administrative affairs of our existing churches. In accordance with this suggestion, the Directors of the American Unitarian Association, at a meeting held June 12, 1900,Voted, That the recommendation of the Secretary for the appointment of a committee to prepare a manual on methods of church organization is hereby indorsed, and the President is requested to appoint such a committee.The following persons were accordingly appointed as this Committee, - John P. Forbes, Roland W. Boyden, George H. Badger, Clara B. Beatley, Florence Everett, with the President of the Association as Chairman.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
