ARTICLE OF THE DAY: I mentioned this ten page article in an email and thought I should share it about. Widely quoted in my DMin project, this article is the best explanation of the how the class meeting worked in the USA church and why it declined, and originally appeared in the journal Methodist History 40:4. It is essential for understanding what happened in history and why for those who wish to renew the class meeting among modern Methodists.
