                     I.
      THE CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR MOVEMENT.



               THE first Society of Christian Endeav-
                 or was established at Portland, Me.,
                 February 2, 1881, by Rev. Frances E.
                 Clark, in Williston Church, of which
                 Rev. Clark was pastor.  The objects
                 of the Society, as stated in a cate-
                 chism of "facts about Christian En-
                 deavor," are: "For the training of
young converts for the duties of church membership; to
promote an earnest Christian life among its members; to
increase the mutual acquaintance, and to make them
more useful in the service of God."
  Men who originate great moral and religious move-
ments generally build better than they know, and I am
persuaded that the originator of this great work is not
an exception to the rule.  The good that has been and
may be accomplished by the Christian Endeavor So-
ciety, may indeed embrace even more than is so con-
cisely summed up in the words which I have quoted,
and yet they are sufficiently comprehensive to embrace
chiefly those principles that have made the work such a
success. Here is a birds-eye view of its phenomenal
growth.
