PICKENS, S. C.:
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14 1907.
A GOOD MOVE.
l'ursuant to a call made by several
of the members of the Methodist de
nomination iu and around Pickens, a
meeting was held last Thursday eve
ning, October 31st, for the purpose
ofltaking into consideration the pres
ent and prospective financial status
of the Pickens circuit. This meeting
was well attended, and much enthusi
asm and determination shown.
Among the matters discussed was
that appertaining to the salary of the
preacher for this circuit, and definite
plans were ebaped by which this im
portant factor in the welfare of the
circuit will probably be more liber.
ally and consistently attended to.
It is well that church members ar.
becoming more alive to this need of
their church. This is a growing
community and :be churches com
posing the Pickens circuit will profit
by any earmest, diligent effort to pro
mote the financial side of their busi
ness, The preacher cannot go an
less he be sent, and sonding him is
the expression of a call for the means
whereby he is to go, if it is expected
of him to devote his whole time and
talent to the work of the church.
This is what this community needs
-a lively awakening to the needs of
the ministry - -and when this realiza
tion Lreaks upon the pcople of the
church in full force, it means to the
individual member and to the church,
as a b'ody, that the work of the Got.
pei is having effect.
The pcaching and the work of the
preachers and those aligned with hin
have not been in vain, but, in the ef.
forts that now speak through definite
action, there is proclaimed the result
of earnest, pious labor and sacrifice
that consecrited men and womn,
preacher and laity, have sought to
reach throngh months and years of
strivings agvainst s'eeming imdiflerence.
But the time has cotme for larg r
action. In the spotntaneous move
men t which is' decidledly and definite
ly taking shape in the Methodist
ranks, the whole community may feel
a measure of gratitud', because as
one peopl)e, the mission of all the
churches or every denomination see
in this some fulfillment of their bopes
and all are partakers in the resultant
There is no grumbling or comn
plaining in the effort to advance the
cause for which Christian people
should be and are united. There is
no endeavor to criticize or censure.
The Methodist, church is simply wak
ing up to realize her need and her
opportunmties, and1 the first stepping
ston:, to larger achievements is that
support to the cause which is neces
sary to its preaching, and this our
peple seem determined to provide.
