Sie,-As one who is not a convert, but very involved in convert making, I read Henry Edwards's article with great interest. I have deep sympathy for the lone convert and, as a long-term solution for the problem, I suggest that converts get together and get down to making more converts, until they are sufficiently numerous in any congregation not to suffer from a "lone" or "minority" complex. In actual practice I have not always found that converts are the greatest supporters of our efforts in the conversion of England. The best financial support for the C.P.C. is a convert clergyman. No lic Ireland where there is a great missionary zeal to convert the "poor Protestants"!
The only P.P. that I know to have actually refused to advertise the C.P.C. is a convert clegryman. No doubt he has his own good reasons as have the many others who in fact do not advertise it.
I suggest a start might be made by converts, when they are asked why they "turned," replying that there are many reasons which it would take too long to explain, but if their questioner would like to learn some of them he or she might apply for this free course, and give them a handbill, which I shall be pleased to provide.
