Resolution On State Papers

WHEREAS, The denominational weeklies of Southern Baptists have received less appreciation from the denominational than any other agency, in proportion to the value of the service they have rendered; and,

WHEREAS, Only an average of one Baptist family in five among our people in the South take a denominational weekly; and,

WHEREAS, To multiply the circulation of our papers is to multiply the efficiency of every agency of service fostered by this Convention; therefore, resolved,

1. That this Convention urges upon the State Conventions and District Associations the propriety of giving a good hour in their annual gatherings for the purpose of magnifying the mission of the denominational journal.

2. That we urge the pastors to put the value of the denominational papers on the consciences of their people and in every fit way to facilitate the extension of their circulation.
