CHRISTIAN CONQUEST MOVEMENT GROWING Editor of The Cltlien! I write to request your co-operation In extending the Christian Conquest Crusade. This movement Is of peculiar Interest to the people of your state Just at this time, because the State Sunday School Con vention recently adopted the Christian Conquest flag, and recommended Its use, together with the national flag, as decorations in all of the Sunday schools of your state. Originating In connection with the tragic death of President McKtnlev, this movement has snread marvelously. until now it has assumed national, and even inter national proportions. It alma to secure the adoption of the Conquest flags by all ?hurcheand christian organisa tions as the flag of the chrlstlan-relig-lon. This flag, associated with the na tional flag, ia to be used as a means of arousing and uniting all christian forces for the sake of world-wide christian conquest, the rhttraeterlsa tlon of the national life, the cultivation of patriotism and the teaching of the duties of citisenshlp as a definite and organised part of the life and work of every christian church. This flag has already been adopted bv the state Sunday school associa tions of Missouri, Maryland, Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina and It Is rapidly being adopted by other states. It has also been adopted by tne Illinois Ant I-Saloon Lengues and by the Internatlon Convention of the DIs-rlules of Christ, at their meeting at Omaha, last October. It has been endorsed bv many of the leading denom- matlonal and missionary organisations of our land.. It has spread to other lands and the movement seems destined to assume world-wlile-pro- portlons. Perhaps the matter of most special Interest to the general reader Is the success of this movement In Inducing the churches to take up definitely the teaching of the duties of clt-Ixneshlp as christian duties, In the line of the creed of Christian Patriotism, enclosed herewith. It led to the establishment, by the International Sunday SchoW-C-uiiypntlcm. at Denver, Colorado, last Jmierf-!iMtlxiieship"-Sunday, the fourth Suiiy--tNjiyemher, euh year, when the duties cT"cTtrxefw. ship and temperiilce are to be taught throughout Ihe Sunday schools of North America. - S, M.
