THE LITTLE COUNTRY CHURCH
To a Country Parson
He gained no post of prominenee
In priestly realm ? nor did he ask
That prelates grand in conference
Should grant to him the favored
Task; but as he labored near the sod.
Men looked on him and thought of God.
No temple his with cloistered wall
And spires searching out the clouds ?
No costly chimes to sound the call
Of worship to the worldly crowds:
But. when he spoke, men paused to hear.
And sensed a holy spirit near.
No swarming masses thronged his pews,
Nor urged the aisles to speak his fame;
No flaming headlines in the news
Gave to his sermon wide acclaim;
But, when he preached the word to men,
Hearts found the Christ, and lived again.
Through years of glad unselfish toil,
And service free, he gave his all;
He dwelt with those who tilled the soil,
And waited for his Master's call ?
Through fertile field, o'er hallowed clod,
A country parson walked ? with God.

The Rev. Priestley Convers led

Meaning of Christian Grace."
That Paul was combatting the le
galism of his day. emphasizing
"Salvation by Grace" over against
"Salvation by human effort," was
pointed out by the speaker.
It is the custom of the associ
ation to have a topic presented by
a member at each meeting, follow
ed by a period of discussion when
all members may participate. Fol
louing this custom, the Rev. T.
R. Jenkins, minister at Ann Street
Methodist church. Beaufort, read
a paper on "The Makings of A
Good Minister of Jesus Christ."
Mr. Jenkins stated that a minis
ter should (1) possess a sterling
character, seeking to live a life
above reproach; (2) be a scholar,
especially of the Bible; (3) stand
for something and not only
"against" things; (4) love people,
friends and foes; (5) preach the
truth in love, positively; (6) prac
tice ethical principals at all times.
After the presentation of this
paper a helpful discussion of com
mon problems of the minister was
After the reading and approval
of the minutes of the last meeting

the association were discussed.

The time for "The Church of

WMBL was discussed. Because
several people have stated their
desire to have this program at an
earlier hour, the association voted
to move it up sometime between
the hours of 8 and 9 o'clock if
this arrangement can be worked
out satisfactorily with the local

prayer by the Rev. L. C. Chandler,

at his feet. And he said, Who
art thou? And she answered, I
am Ruth thine handmaid: spread
therefore thy skirt over thine
handmaid; for thou art a near
kinsman. And he said, Blessed i
be thou of the Lord, my daughter;
for thou hast shewed more kind
ness in the latter end than at the
beginning, inasmuch as thou fol
lowedst not young men, whether
poor or rich. And now, my daugh
ter, fear not; I will do to thee all
that thou requirest; for all the city
of my people doth know that thou
art a virtuous woman.
AND BOAZ TOOK RUTH, and
she was his wife: and the Lord
gave her conception, and she bare
a son. And the women said unto
Nuomi, Blessed be the Lord, which
hath not left thee this day without
a kinsman, that his name may be
famous in Israel. And he shall be
unto thee a restorer of thy life,
and a nourisher of thine old age:
for thy daughter in law, which
loveth thee, which is better to thee
than seven sons, hath born him.
And Naomi took the child, and
laid it in her bosom, and became
nurse unto it. And they called his
name Obed: he is the father of
Jesse, the father of David.
