Davis, Earl Clement. "The Village Church". The Christian Register, Unitarian, March 1944, vol. 123, no. 3, pp. 92-93.

A meditation on the role of the village church and its prospects for the future. Davis is mindful of the ongoing war, "the wrecked harvest of a tragic era", and attentive to the fact that the young men going to war continue to want to be recognized in the church: "They should contain the seeds of a better harvest."
