Green, Stated Clerk. DKACON'MKK BUSINKHS MEN MKKT. Moat deacons are business-like, for that was one of the fjualideations that recommended them for election to this l ,gh office. But how few are the .eacons who are really deacon-like. They do not seem to like the position, with its responsibilities, nor to act with the consecrated bue,cess zta! as luauagerB 01 me u mporal w rare of the Church. On the 12th of November there was held a meeting of deacons from the West Lexington Presbytery at Lexington, Ky., that marks a long step forward in the work of the deacons in the i'ynod of Kentucky. Thirteen churches were represented, with sixty-three men present, most of these being deacons. Before the conference hour a delicious lunch was served bv the lartiea nf tho church. Another thing that this gathering demonstrated, was what an efficient secretary of Home Missions and Sunday-school work may do. The meeting was made possible largely through the efforts of the well known Thomas B. Talbot, who presided at the conference. The address of the evening was delivered by the Rev. John I. Armstrong, educational secretary of the Committee of Foreign Missions at Nashville. His subject was. "Common Sense in Church Fiuance." He dis cussed what he called the "Six Rs of Giving"?Regular, Related, Resourceful, Religious, Reasonable and Regarding the Reward. His address was instructive and forcible. At the close of his remarks a round table on the deacons' work was held, led by Mr. Armstrong. The following questions had been prepared to stimulate the discussion. These proved full of help and thought-provoking: 1. What should be the attitude of the elders toward church finances? 2. How often should the deacons meet? 1 W K.? ,.1 1J ?u_ J ...
