MINISTERS' OF SANDY
RUN HOLD MEETING
The ministers' conference of
Sandy Run association held its re-
gular monthly meeting Monday morn-
ing, December 29, at the Alexanaei
Baptist church. Rev. J. A. Brock,
president, called the meeting 10
order at ten-thirty. The beautiful
old hymn, "Down at the Cross
Where My Saviour Died," was sung
with enthusiasm, after which R ev
B. P. Parks lead the opening pray
er. Rev. J. A. Hunnicutt conduct
ed the devotional service, using Phil.
3:8-17. His thoughts am} applica
tion to verses eight and thirteen were
fruitful to our hearts and each was
touched as he looked forward to the
things ahead and gave up the things
behind. "Brethern, I count not my
self to have apprehended: but this
one thins I do, s forgetting those
things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things which are
before," was Paul's great message
unto all. The minutes of the De
cember Ist, meeting were read and
approved. The treasurer's report
was adopted. President Brock in
troduced and welcomed into the con
ference Rev. R. G. Melton and Rev.
M. M. Huntley. A motion was made
and carried, that the Sandy Run
association Ministers' conference
meet at Boiling Springs Junior col
lege in joint session with the Kings
Mountain association Ministers
conference and the Gaston associa
tion Ministers' conference on Mon
day, January sth, 1931, in a regu
lar quarterly meeting. All minis
ters of the Sandy Run association
are urged to attend that joint ses
sion at ten-thirty o'clock.
Dr. W. A. Ayers was the speaker
of the morning. His subject was,
1 "The Paramount Values of 1930,"
| Dr. Ayers discussed some wonderful
ithoughts pertaining to the values of
11930. In part, he reminded us of the
failures in the material world, and
how God was using these things to
bring about His work here on earth.
People are learning the wonderful
lesson of putting first things and
people are coming to realize more
and more that the material things
'are only temporal and only means
|to an end and God is increasingly
working in the world. God's plan
from the beginning is one-seventh
of our time and one-tenth of our
income. Christ is the only necessity
for man and Christ is the answer to
all lives and with this great truth
which has come upon us, the next
year should be a great spiritual
awakening and revival period through
I out the land. "While we look not at
the things which are seen, but at
the things which are not seen; for
the things which are seen are tem
poral; but the things which are not
seen are eternal." 2-Cor. 4:18. Many
thanks and appreciation to Dr.
Ayers for his great soul filling mes
sage on God's truths pertaining to
man's possessions and God's owner
ship of all material things intrust
ed to man to glorify Jesus Christ
our Lord and Master.
At the next regular meeting Dr.
Welchel will discuss, "The Outlook
for 1931." How we shall face the
future. There being no further busi
