Resolution On The Lords Day

WHEREAS, The Lord’s Day commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead and should be observed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, with a wholesome use of the day, by resting from secular employments with the exceptions of work of necessity and mercy.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we encourage supporting and strengthening the observance of the Lord’s Day as a day of unique religious experience and significance and keeping alive an awareness of the “first day of the week” as the Lord’s Day and the importance of keeping it “as unto the Lord,” and (1) to use it as a day of worship, religious instruction, of family culture, and of service to others, and as it strongly contends against the adverse influences that threaten the integrity of this blessed day, and (2) that we make a strong appeal to all of our churches and people to call our generation back to the proper observance of this fundamental order of Christian faith, that all people may enjoy one day out of seven as a day of rest and worship.
