The service of worship last Sun
day morning was based upon the
theme of the Christian home,
which is t'he major emphasis for
this month. The pastor spoke on
! the subject, "Family Religion." |
He alleged that many ntarried
couples never realize the itnpor
. tance of religion in the hoiuftjiu
til they have children of tnteiir
own; that a christian home is the
best place in which one may catch
religion. Moreover, he attributed j
youthful delinquency and broken
homes to the lack of family re-;
At the evening service of wor
j ship the theme was "Successful
: Christian Living." Success in any
1 realm is based upon a proper
; technique. One cannot build a
I bridge or play a piano without
; technique. Neither can one live a
! successful Christian life without
a proper technique or method.
Such a method would include
daily prayer, the daily reading of
J the Bible and service.

EVERY individual citizen should make a spec
ial effort to show his or her appreciation of
Mother on Sunday ? Mother's Day. She is the
one individual in this world who will go farther
and do more to protect, defend and assist you in
adversity as well as good fortune than any one
else. It is exceedingly unfortunate that most of
us forget the debt we owe Mother. We forget
the proper respect for her too often and have
passed unnoticed the little deeds we could do for
her happiness and pleasure. Let's turn a new
leaf, add to the many kind thoughts and acts and
this year really make Mother happy that you and
I are hers, and that we still remember her. The
deeds may not be elaborate or expensive; often
it is the smaller things that bring the most pleas
ure. The thing that counts most is the sincere
love and thought for Mother.
