MR No. 1014—Ellen White Comments on The Value of Organization by C. C. Crisler

(As reported by W. C. White)


August 3, 1914.

Dear Bro. Crisler:

This morning Mother seemed to be quite strong and she asked if there was anything needing her attention. Then I told her of the manuscript you had prepared on The Value of Organization, which has a bearing on the relationship of the Madison School to the organized work of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. Mother said she would be pleased to have me read it to her, and we read the first 26 pages.

When we reached page twelve, lines 8-4 from the bottom, [Page references refer to the working manuscript, not the printed pamphlet. No copies of the draft are known to have been preserved.] Mother said: “This should be repeated and emphasized.” Page 13, lines 5 and 6: “That is important. Meetinghouses will be built and institutions of learning established.” Paragraph 2, page 13: “With humility and love the workers make deep impressions.” Page 17, first paragraph: “That is good.” Paragraph 3: “I am glad of that statement.” Page 20, last paragraph: “Frequently this matter has been presented to me in this way. If humble workers will carry the message in great humility, the power of God will set home the truth to the hearts of the people. There is danger of getting out of the line of true humility, which God approves and which proves itself.
