Old Home Ties
The old home and the old
church have wonderful influ
ence upon our lives. Ties ar.'
formed in childhcod that are
strong in death. Often when
people go away and die away
from home they express a desire
to be carried back to the old
home church to be buried. If
no such desire is expressed, the
loved ones who are living nearly
always carry out that unex
pressed wish. If the home and
church has such strong hold
upon our lives we ought to be
more careful in the home and hi
the church to make the very besi
impressions, for they last thru
Misbehavior in Church

they have very little sense, nol
enough to know how to behave
but if they have been well raiset
and have good sense and stil
