Subject "Weakness". Attractive Church Sign The outside of the Chestnut Hill church has added quite an at tractive sign just at the entrance of the church which I feel most sure will mean a great deal to the home folk's and also strangers as passing by which perhaps they would want to know the name of our little village and as a church what a demonstration and the sign reads as follows. Chestnut Hill Methodist Church, time of services and pastor. We wish to ;hank Mr. John Runion for pro- 3osing this wonderful idea. We )we more to Mr. Runion than just tha,nk you. He knew it was the making of the appearance of the church and his pledge was at the 'beginning $50.00 for his family. Mr. Runion and his 'family mean more than we oan express in word to the church. He is always willing and ready to do his part. So Mr. Runion we are very proud of this slg,n and we are grateful to you.

It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church. neither democracy nor civilization' can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I} For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.

What has happened verts in other Billy Graham ings? The answer to depends on the converts them- selves; but it de- pends also a great deal on what other Chris- tians do about it. Billy himself has said, "After the obstetrician comes the pedia- trician." The Dr. birth of a baby is important news; but suppose from that ment everybody forgets and nobody does a single him ? In that case the as well never have been Qefling Aoquaintsd Saint Paul was a new once.

' He was very eager to ge! to Jerusalem where he had up his career as an He risked his life, in fact, back there. He knew that effective place to give a hess is just where you a bad witness in times much easier to go to a nlace for a complete new than to make the new start i old surroundings. But Paul took the easiest way, find him back in Jerusaler~ lonely man. For not a there would speak to known as a )]acable enemy of all When he began speaking for instead of against him, the tian~ were shocked and but one man, Barnabas, I-to this new eonvert and him to the church leaders fellow-Christian.

Furthermore, note that good practical did not keep his young Paul to personally to the leading tians of the city. A Job Paul was a tentmaker, hobby but as a job for naps he worked at Jerusalem. But not, the job that really him was an opportunity to for Christ.
