The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 1

Conference of 1827

Conference of 1827.

"The Preachers of different Circuits, when resident in the same town, are advised to meet at least once in every month, for the purposes of mutual conference and prayer; in order to promote brotherly love, and to afford frequent and regular opportunities for friendly consultation on subjects of common concern in their respective Circuits."§

It has been felt, from the beginning, that Ministers who sustain a relation to each other, so intimate, peculiar, and page 26 delicate, must act towards each other with perfect openness and candour, otherwise their very union will rather be a bane than an advantage. Among them collisions of opinion would inevitably chafe their spirits, and mar the sacred work in which they are engaged.
