TRIBUTE TO A PASTOR.
Rev. I.. H. Ciiffman. of HUlndale,
' I aomely KemenilMT-ed.
I Hillsdale, Oct. 24. Last Sundav
heing anniversarj- year for Rev. L.
H. Coffman, at licthel Baptist rhitreh.
th event was commemorated in a
manner that will not soon be forgot
ten ljy those present. The pastor
was jriven a vacation last August,
that he might regain his broken
health, but during his absence he
was attacked with rheumatism, from
which he has only partially recovered.
With the exception of a few Sundays
he has not been able to preach since
the lirst of August, although he has
several times attempted to do so, hut
j each time suffered a relapse. Now
j however, he has so far recovered as
I to be able to fill all his appointments,
j and as last Sunday marked the close
of the second year of his work at
) Bethel, a Teview of the work oc
cupied the time of the morning scr-
vice. When Rev. Oilman took
charge of the work there was a mem
j bership of 23. During these two
l years his efforts have been blessed
wonderfully, until now there are 68
active members. The esteem in
which the pastor is held by his con
gregation has been manifested on
former occasions, but never until last
Sunday were the relations so forci
bly and beautifully expressed. At
the close of the morning service, ami
just before the closing song, Leonard
Trent advanced to the pulpit and in
a few well chosen words, and in be
half of the church, presented the
pastor with a beautiful gold watch
and chain as a token of the esteem
in which he is held by the church.
The succeeding moments recorded a
scene that will not soon fade from
the memory of pastor or people.
There were few dry eyes in the con
gregation, and as "soon as Rev. CoiT
man could control his emotions he
j thanked the doners for the beautiful
present, but expressed his inability
j at that time to properly express his
J gratitude. "This tie will bind us
urarrr eacn otucr man ever iiefore.
although our relations have been
most pleasant, he said. "Blessed be
the Tie that Binds" was sung bv the
congregation, and the long to be re
membered service ended with a sea
son of congratulations and hand
The evening service was a con
tinuation of the morning, except
that it was directed more especially
to the younger members. The in
fluence of this little church is not
confined to a bushel, and to the pas
tor and his faithful band of workers,
voting and old. is this fact indebted.
