We are now already in the second

for larger and better work. The
weather is fine now and the children
cart go barefooted and the men can
soon leave their coats at home. Or
shall it be said, “It is too hot to go
to church?” If anyone needs h p
in concocting an ereuse the clevi! is
always ready as a volunteer to heU
form some excuse. It is not safe to
hobnob with the devil either in win
ter or summer. Jesus said he was
a liar from the beginning and is
the father of lies.
Suppose we institute a new pro
gram, something like this. Let eaci

down the different ways it is possible
to help the Sunday school and church.
