Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
         STATUS OF  METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.                    115
 

              WHAT HAS METHODISM DONE?
    It introduced a church without a King, and a christianity without
a Pope.  It established Sunday-schools for the poor and teachers with-
out compensation.

    It has promoted a fraternal spirit between denominations and has
taught the independence of individuals and families.

    It has fostered and supported the Bible Cause and multiplied its
power by means of the Tract Society.  It was the first to preach the
Gospel to the master, the slave and the Indian in the New World, and
one of the first to plant the tree of life in India.

    It originated the Berean Lesson system and has led the forces
which have given a uniform lesson throughout the Commonwealth of
Christianity, while Bishop Vincent is the central figure.

    It has fostered the cause of co-education of women and men
and has led the world in utilizing the consecrated influence of
women in the school and in the church.

    It gave the world the Chautauqua Assembly, combining religion,
philosophy and pleasure.

    It gave the world the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle,
which had only 700 in 1878, now it has over 2200 Circles and 160,000
members, who are pursuing a regular course in all the lands and in the
Isle of the Sea, reaching as far as Japan.

    It has taught the world how to use the printing  press.  It has
shown the possibility of the pulpit and press working in harmony for
the salvation of men.
                        THE THREE POWERS.
    It is an honor to be a citizen of the British Empire, to owe alle-
gience to Her Majesty, Victoria, Queen of Queens, Empress of India,
but an humble and loyal citizen of the Kingdom of Grace. And it is
no mean thing to be a citizen of the United States, to stand on the
Declaration of Independence, to wear the Constitution as a shield and
the Starry Banner as a canopy.
