The meaning of Eastqr and its message of , .,
revival of hope and the buoyant renewal of our aspi-
m « ration come fo an old and tired world this morning arid
'pervade our lives even as the springtide floods and fills
the .meadows with her everlasting miracle.
By an irresistible human impulse, w$ seek out our
finest and most fashionable raiment, and. that im
pulse is parallel to the natural processes in the world
about us. H the earth can put off her drab habiliments
of winter and forget the somber, sunless hours, so can
the children of earth. In every life today there may be
a resurrection from the dead. In every life old things
may be discarded. He has not caught the spirit of the
festal celebration who is not stirred to a renewal, and
is not moved to forsake the darkness and give wel
come to the light.
IT IS more than a church festival. Believer and un
believer together share the influences of the day. Ih
each of us, whatever creed, we formally profess, there
'dwells the feeling that the day betokens. It is the
assurance that life is worth the living and that love
can never lose its own. We stand today not at the
brink of a tomb but on the threshold of this eternal
life and of this love immortal.

Church has arranged to hold a Sun

of the South hiave been holding these
training schools in the cities where
there are several Baptist churches,

experts to come to their churche.-?.

be only one class this year, with one
teacher. Next ye^r there v/ill be «’■>-
other school here and then there will
be two teachers. These teachers have
to be arranged for a long time ahead,
and already Mr. Smith is doing some
preliminary correspondence in regard
to the .'’chool for 1923.
Dr. Spilman will teach the first divi
sion of the Convention Norman Man
ual, which is book number one in the
teacher training course of Southern
Baptists. Those who attend this
class may. if they wish to do sc. stand
an examination, and a successful ex
amination will entitle all such to a
certificate, and when examinations on
all three divisions of the Manual shall
have been stood all such wll receive
diploma/j which are gven by the Bap-
tirt Sunday school BoaYd located in
the examinations, for all who w ish Lo
attend these classes may do s j and
not take the examination shouh [ they
prefer not. ^
It is hoped that the near-by Baptist
Sunday Schools, such as Carr’s Hill,
Glady Branch, Cathey’s Creek, and
Pisgah Forest, will take nai t i i this
training school, and will gel "^h » best
of their young people togethei -/ith
their officers and teachers.
Air sessions of the training school
will be held at night, and whijg the
hours have not definitely settlled on
yet, still the usual plan of these train
ing schools will likely be followed.
This plan is to meet at 6:30 p, M.,
have one class, closing with a popu
lar and inspirational lecture l>y Dr.
Spilman. Many will want to come
late and hear this lecture who may
not care to take the class work. This
will be especially true of people of
j other denominations, a large number
jof whom the Baptists hope v,ni at-
Yet' it * is not compulsory to take • tend these lectures.
U. D. C. RESOLUTIONS:
As member^ of the United Daugh
ters of Confederacy we desire to
publicly express our deep sorrow at
the passing away of our oldest, and
one of our faithful memb^jrs. Miss
Hattie Deaver. She wa,3 ever loyal
to the society, and although deprieved
of the pleasure of attending the meet
ings in her last years, she had unfail-
iilg interest in the workings of the
Chapter and all that it stood for. In
her gentle spirit, and sterling charac
ter, she has left u.g a beautiful legacy
which we would strive to emulate.
While we have sustained-a great loss,
let us not complain, but bow in hum
ble submission to Him who is too wise
to err and too merciful to be unkind.
Resolved: That we, the members
of the U. D. C., extend to the bereav
ed family our heart-felt sympathy in
the great loss they have sustained.
2nd. That copies of these resolu
tions be sent to the family, to the
Brevard News, and a copy placed on
the records of the IJ. D. C. Society.
