A Woman’s Work in the Church

year 1883

June 28, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 1st page)

What is woman’s work in the church? She thinks, loves, gives, suffers, prays, and persuades. She sustains the prayer meeting. She fills the pews; without her, what a beggarly array of emptiness! She sustains the Sunday school. She sustains the pastor. If she wants a larger field let her move the fence; nobody on the other side can hinder. Some on-looking patriarch, under the vine; some callow youth, who does not know the great world’s width may protest, but her growing work will not be disturbed.
