with the prayer that you may truly share
in the benefits that have been purchased
for us by His death and resurrection*

Day, As we remember that our Lord hath
conquered death, and today he is risen,

instead of sadness. May the great fact
of the ^death.and resurrection of-our
Lord lead us to lar^' liberality for the
saving of the wbrld, • '

memories, a time for self-denial arid- self-

our Master more closely, use our talents'
for his Kingdom, and daily ask ourselves,
what am I leaving undone that I ou^t to
do, • _ . ‘ '
Sincerely your,friend and pastor,
