IjgpCHURCH SERVICES HELD IN DURHAM^ ■ fc. fp 111 Mayor Howard Lee Guest at "Y" Symposium Sun., Sept. 20 Mayor Howard Lee, guest 3>eaker at the Symposium, "Avenues to World Peace" held Sunday, Sept. 20 at the Y. M. C. A., said that before we can solve the problems of world peace abroad, we must begin at home, with each in dividual. Man must set new priorities which will benefit mankind as a whole and not just groups. Further, he stated the view that all nations, in cluding Communist China, should be represented at the United Nations. The Reverend Grady Davis, also guest speaker on the pro gram, expressed the "hypo thesis" that, "World peace, an impossible possibility, cannot be achieved in this century and probably not in the next century." He pointed out how the three models for achieving unity: governmental, educa "&PrV*M religious, have failed Burlington is Host to Three-Day Meet Of Jehovah's Witnesses About 150 delegates from this area will attend the three day circuit convention of Je hovah's witnesses in Burling ton, N. C. the week-end of September 25-27, according to statement made here by Gerome McDowell, resident minister. The meeting will be held at the Sellars-Gunn School Gym torium on Rosenwald Street in Burlington, where an estimated 1000 witnesses from 17 con gregations are expected. Sea sons will begin Friday, Sep tember 25, at 6:45 p.m. and continue through Sunday until 6:00 p.m. The convention's theme: "The Word of God is alive," is centered around Paul's words at Hebrews 4:12 N. W.."The word of God is alive and ex erts power...and is able to disern thoughts and intentions of the heart." The program will include talks, round table discussions TWO MINUTES^ Utm THE BIBLE 6 \ •r cornilius a. stam mis. / I Mil AN SIBll SOCIITY f / CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 6063S f VNjf -A (l / » "PAUL THE PATTERN" No conversion in sacred his tory is given so much attention as that of St. Paul. Besides the many references to it. we find three detailed accounts of it in the book of Acts. As Saul of Tar sus, the learned Pharisee, he had led his nation and the world in rebellion against God and the Lord Jesus Christ. t St. Luke says: "As for Saul, he made havock of the church" (Acts 8:3). The believers at Da mascus feared Saul's presence, among them, "saying: "Is not this he that destroyed them which called on thin name at Jerusa lem?" (fitdUr>*lx2l). Paul himself later testified: "Many of the saints did I shut up in prison . . . [ and when they were put to death I gave my voice [vote] against them" (Acts 26:10). . . beyond measure I persecuted the church of God and wasted it [laid it waste]" (Gal. 1:13). There must have been an im portant reason why God saved to make significant steps towards unity. Mrs. Tereh Cowart Smith, the Baha'i speaker, pointed out that mankind was developed through the stages of infancy, childhood, and adolenscence in the same way as an individual develops and that man is now at the stage of maturity. This is the stage at which he is des tined to unite on a world level both politically and spiritually. Mrs. Smith stated that Baha' u'llah, Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith, brought a plan for world peace, and pro phesied that we would have a "lesser" political peace in the world by the end of this cen tury. The Symposium was spon sored by the Baha'is of Dur ham In their observance of World Peace Day, Sept. 20. and demonstrations showing how Christians today, may be come spiritual men, nourished in the faith, unitedly sharing with others the deep things of God's powerful word. The circuit's progress during the past six months will be re viewed, and Saturday's pro gram will include baptismal arrangements for newly dedi cated witnesses. However, the featured event of this Burlington semi nar,, sponsored by the Watch tower Society, will be a public discourse Sunday, September 27 at 3:00 p.m. by J. C. Howard, Jr., District Supervi sor. The subject of the address will be "WHO WILL CON QUER THE WORLD IN THE 1970'5"? The public is cordially in vited to attend all sessions, McDowell said. The first retarded oil pro* duction in Texas was* in 1889. this rebel leader. Clearly it was that He might make Paul, not only the herald, but the living ex ample of "the exceeding riches of His grace" to sinners. Paul himself said: "And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord . . . for . . . putting me into the ministry; who was before A BLASPHEMER, AND A PERSECU TOR. AND INJURIOUS: but I ob taiiytd mercy, because I did it ignt rantly and in unbelief. AND TH GRACE OF OUR LORD WAS EXCEEDING ABUNDANT. . . . This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that CHRIST JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD TO SAVE SINNERS, OF WHOM I AM CHIEF. HOWBEIT FOR THIS CAUSE I OBTAINED MERCY, THAT IN ME FIRST JESUS CHRIST MIGHT SHOW FORTH ALL LONGSUFFERING, FOR A PATTERN TO THOSE WHO SHOULD HEREAFTER BELIEVE ON HIM TO LIFE EVERLASTING" (I Tim. 1:12,16). Mrs. Elnora Smith Treats Senior Citizens On August 12, the Senior Citizens at St. Titus' Church, were given their annual treat by Mrs. Elnora Smith of Nebo St., the eagerly expected gar den party. The garden was as lovely as ever with a profusion of late-summer blooms in most tasteful arrangement, and sur rounded by the greenery of shrubs and trees. Near the center of the gar den was a table covered with delectable food, artistically ar ranged, such as is a special talent of Mrs. Smith. At one end another table covered in part with the delicious refresh ing punch. Members and guests moved from one table to the other serving themselves at will. Some could not resist returning for "seconds." The hour sped by with laughter and chatter and greet ings of friends, some of whom were brought together after a long period of time.

Record Amount Reported By Loft Carey FAYETTEVILLE - Two hundred and sixty nine thou sand dollars was reported here the largest amount in history raised by a Black Church, for foreign Missions, by the Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission convention at Fayetteville State University and First Bap tist Church, Moore Street, in session for it's 73rd annual session. Covenant Baptist Church, 85% all white membership, pastored by H. W. Wiley, black minister was admitted to con vention for the first time in the all black organization's 73 years history, Dr. M. L. Wilson, New York, president, urged Lott Carey to adopt an open door policy that will accept any church regardless as to color. The vote to admit Co venant was unamonious. "There must be a williness on the part of the Negro church to accept whites for this is a two way business. Young Negro ministers are leaving the black church and accepting leadership of con gregations because of a lack of interest and concern by the Negro church. This can only be corrected by the black church changing and expressing a willi ness to advance with the changing times," Dr. Wilson said. Dr. Wendell Sommerville, Washington, D. C., executive secretary reported the adop tion of a two-hundred and fifty thousand dollar budget for the year 1970-71. The con vention's major objective is in Liberia and Haiti. Miss Angle Brooks, first black woman pre sident of the United Nations, is a product of the convention and directs it's work in Liberia.
