A few years ago the Rev.
James N. Faulconer. pastor of
the Christian Church in Jack
son. Mississippi, announced in
the daily newspaper that the
following Sunday he was going
to hold a funeral service for
church members. At the
service he promised to read the
names of 50 inactive members
of the church and place the list
in a small coffin. “When one
ceases to function in the church
program he is dead, and it is time
for fiis funeral.” explained the
alert young minister.
The day for the funeral ar
rived, and of course the church
was crowded. All the inactive
members turned out hoping
their presence would dissuade
their pastor from disgracing
them. The curious were also
there and a good number of
Pharisees. People who never
attend church to meet with the
Lord can easily be reached with
a promise of something unusual
or entertaining. The service
proceeded as usual until the
time for the list of names drew
nigh. Then as everyone crossed
fingers the pastor read the
names of the dead church mem
bers: John Backslider, Anna
Lukewarm. Margaret Indecision.
Alma Gossipcr, Jim Knocker.
Edith Ncverhelp, Daniel I. Doo
little, Henry Neverpay. Frank
Non-Missionary. Harry Itcan’be

ert lambusy and the Critical
family, of whom there are six:
Harry, who thinks the preacher
preaches too long; Jane, who
thinks the pastor should call of
tener; Ike. who thinks the
church has too many calls for
missionary help: Callic, who
doesn't like the choir, and Glen,
who thinks there are too many
hypocrites on the official board
of the church.
Drastic, perhaps, but I feel
the good pastor made his point.
No church is better than its
members—and only as church
members pull together and work
together in unity and love will

I This information comes to us
from Albert A. Banadyga, Ex

i which is of interest to all vege

“Does It Pay To Stake and
I Prune Tomatoes? The answer is!
,YES! The advantages of prun
ing and staking are: (1) Less
> rotting of the fruit during wet
i weather, (2) the first fruit ripens
i three to five days earlier. (3)
jripe fruits are easier to find
i and more convenient to pick,
; (4) larger fruit size, and (5) it is
' easier to do a thorough job of
' dusting or spraying to control
j insects and diseases.
The disadvantages are: (1)
j More time and cost involved in
j growing the crop and (2) total
yield per plant is slightly less
t than when not staked and prun
led: however, plants may he
j spaced closer when staked and
! pruned with a result of more
! tomatoes per square foot.
Tomatoes may be staked, by
i driving a 6-ft. stake about 4
1 inches from the plant, and tying
ia soft string loosely around the,
stem yet f-rm’y around the |

Perhaps we would all do well
Ito read the list again and ask
‘ourselves if we are among the
dead church members mention- ,
ed there. It would be well for;
each of us to examine himself i
on the basis of the little coup- 1

popular. This mav t<e done teyii
