As the Thanksgiving season draws near, are
•we mindful of the many, many blessings which God
bestows upon us? May I mention one of the
things for which we are thankful, "The Village
Church",• Jfe prove the degree of our thankfulness
by the interest we show in its work^
We are glad that so many of you come to wor
ship with us when you are home on furlough or for
the week-end. You are always welcome^
At Sunday School, we are continuing our
study of the Ten Comandments, Vie have already
taken up the study of: True spirit in worshiping
God, The sanctity of human life, The sanctity of the home — Now, as we continue, v/e
shall study the sanctity of property. The attendance is up alri^t but not up to what
it ought to be. The worship service attendance could be better also,. Perhaps you can
help to malje it better — if not v/ith your presence, then with yoiir prayers,.
Rev, Clay and his family have moved away to Greensboro since our last writing;
:\nd Rev, Isley and his Mother have come to take up and carry on the work. They, as
the others, shall need the help, snd cooperation of the people,.. May God open our
hearts , and minds that the yjork for the advancement of His kin£;^dom may increase here in
our community as v^e vjork together, ' ^
The village, the Village Church, and the homes here have been saddened twice just
recently, Tv;o good women; Mrs, W, M, Smawley and Mrs,. Nan Caldwell, have slipped out
into the beyond. Of both, it can be said,*- They were loyal to their homes and families
their church, and their God. \Vliat beautiful lives. Our heart goes out to those homes
they are lonely, of course; but God has promised to comfort, to strengthen, and help
us, . May we find comfort in the thou^t - "There’s no sorrow on earth that Heaven can
not heal." .

ril’d capture. cities one p,fter another,* .as being great men, and truly they are, but the
greatest men, who. have ever lived, had first to be conquerors of themselves, for the

Jesus proved himself to be master of the human side of life as well as theDevil’s
side. In the wilderness when he battled vjith the Devil, the first attack was by way
of his appetite, our Lord was hungry - the desire for food was innocent, but he refused
tp take the Devils way of gratif;^dng thi s natural desire. He was fortified by a trust
