In: De Standaard 6 (1877), no. 1511, February 26, 1877.

This promised article (see 1877.01), dated February 24, 1877, pleads against fear of politics in Christian circles. What is at stake is the confession of faith in Christ in every sphere of life, including the political sphere. According to Kuyper, the Anti-Revolutionary press must be supplemented by “the formation of our own party as well.” He argues that lack of organization had caused the Anti-Revolutionary members of Parliament to go off track. The article was signed with the letter “K” because Kuyper had not yet returned from his long period abroad and so had not yet resumed his activities as editor in chief of De Standaard.

An article entitled “Een stille partij?” [A silent party?], no longer signed by Kuyper because he obiously considered himself once more the editor in chief of De Standaard, was published as the lead article (accompanied by four asterisms) in De Standaard, no. 1549, April 12, 1877—two days before he returned home from a long period of recuperation abroad (see 1875.08). Groen van Prinsterer had passed from the scene and a new political leader was standing in the starting block.
