He noted that $150 million is earmarked for primary high. ways, $75 million for rural roads and $75 million for expenditure on state highway system roads within cities and towns. He said the formula was based on un- paved road mileage and that it is fair. The cities were included, he added, because the vast majority | are financially hard - pressed in| providing other services.

He pointed to six characteris- ties in the church's nature: 1) divine, not human but composed of humans; 2) a fellowship of corporate and not dividualistic, a body of Christ of which He is head; 4) universal, yet a localized expres- sion of the great church univer- sal and people of God; 5) body of living Christ which really has no existence unless the Spirit of Living Christ lives in her; and 6) ists not for her own sake but for the sake of God’s glory. Dr. Caldwell, president of Louisville Seminary for 28 years, Arita ACLS, declared, “Because the church is comp sed of people, she has a human side and human weak- nesses."
