Excerpt from The Boy and His Clubs
Churches need for a suggestive and helpful guide. Most boys' club workers feel that what their clubs need to make them ideal is a dash of real, old-fashioned religion in them. What the church's organizations of boys need, to make them ideal and real, is a touch of the spirit found in every live boys' club. In the Olivet Boys' Club there is a religious spirit that is good for the boys and the club. The religion is woven into the life of the boys, and in such a natural way that I cannot tell whether the club is the warp and religion the woof, or religion the warp and the club the woof. Whichever it is the figure of Christ is woven into the characters Of the boys in a sane and happy manner. The new interest in boys which the Men and Religion Movement is developing, ought to make this book helpful to ministers and lay men. The weakness of nearly all our church work for boys is that we have no places to put them to work nor to put them to play.
