    Yearly Meetings for Counsel

    In the Review of July 21, 1859, appeared an article from Elder James White, in which was first suggested the plan that each State hold a yearly meeting in which the brethren could plan for the work in their respective States, that, in place of the confusion which too frequently existed, order might be observed. As a result of Elder White’s suggestions, compared with instructions given in the Testimonies, the different States, where the message was established, beginning with 1860, held, in their respective fields, yearly meetings for counsel, to plan for the work of the ministers. The adoption of this mode of working we will denominate point number four in church order. The practical utility of such councils, meeting together to prayerfully plan for the work, and the comparison of ideas and methods, must commend itself to all.COOD 116.2
