WHEREAS machines are doing more and more of the work of production in our factories and the growth of automation is freeing men in general from many of the demanding duties of the past resulting in greater leisure time for many, and
WHEREAS it is important that such leisure time be used constructively, especially since commercialized amusements are taking advantage of the opportunities which this increase in leisure affords,
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we commend to the churches of our constituency positive program of the involvement of the people of the churches in church related activities in their leisure time. We would specifically encourage participation in man-to-man evangelism, youth organization leadership and lay participation in the business life of the churches.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we commend to the people of our churches the development of a socially wholesome and spiritually rewarding family life, and a greater enjoyment and appreciation of the beauties of nature and the heritage of Christian culture, refraining from activities of recreation and amusement which would draw them away from the life of the church.
