G90D EPWORTH LEAUDE SERVICE
Ticre was a good attendance at
the Bpworth League service Sunday
night. Tho leader was Miss Nannie
Rochester and the lesson "Ingratitude:".
Miss Nannie made a splendid
leader, showing a knowledge in
such things far in advance of her
yeais. We were proud to note the
uu&Scr of intelligent young people
present, it speaks well for their
Lebanon Bible Conference.
This is the third year of the Bible
Conference at Lebanon, Tcnn. The
two previous Conferences received
many words of praise because of their
success, but it is on every one's
tongue that this Conference has surpassed
any of the preceding ones.
The attendance was better this year
than ever before. The situation is
favorable for a delightful spirit of
fellowship, and with the cordial so-it
was a feast of social enjoyment
from first to last. The program was
cial spirt so in the South,
strong and prac'ical. Nowhere in
this country could wc havo received
more excellent thine ;n tho
short period of one week. Fourteen
States, Japan, China and Siam were
all represented. The Conference
was opened with an inspiring sermon
by Dr. J. W. Barkley, Moderator of
the General Assembly. Five ex-Moderators
of tho General Assembly
sat on tho platform the first evening.
Rev. 11. G. Pearson, in his scries of
lectures on Romans and the four
Gospels, showed himself to be a Pan
in reasoning and a master or tha
Bible. Every .one was delighted
with his lectures. Dr. .lames A
Wordcn gave some thrilling lectures
and practical Normal Lessons
holpful to Sunday School workers.
Dr. Wordcn is very dear to the
hearts of the southern people. The
conference on Young People's Work,
conducted by Rev. W. B. Gelston,
of Philadelphia, were very helpful
in uggcstioni and in inspiration for
our young people. Dr. J. I. Taneo's
three leatures on "Chrisi," "The
Churck," and "Love, the link that
unites them," aomtaanded th admiration
and praise of every one.
The lectures of Dr. W. M. Anderson,
pastor o f tho First Presbyterian
church at Nashville on Pastorial
Work were as fnll of practical points
and suggestions to young ministers
as a pine troe is of spines.
