PRESBYTERY
Thirteen of the Seventeen Synods Have Been Organized for the Campaign in this Way? The Others Coming.
Busy men ? both ministers and laymen ? have been called
upon to undertake this work in their respective Synods, and
striking sacrifices have been made to respond to the call.
In Mississippi, Dr. W. H. Fraser, the President of Belhaven
College at Jackson, has, with the consent of his Board of
Trustees, given his whole time to April 1st to become manager
of the campaign for that Synod.
In Florida, the Mayor of Gainesville, Hon. Chris Matheson,
has seen the possibilities of the campaign so great as to warrant
an arrangement whereby he may be released from his official
duties until April 1st to become manager for the Synod of
Florida.
In Texas, Rev. W. Fred. Galbraith, of Dallas, has been re
leased by his church for the period of this campaign to be
come manager for Texas.
In Oklahoma, the congregation of Rev. W. H. Boggs, of
Shawnee, has made a similar sacrifice that its pastor may
conduct the campaign in Oklahoma.
Alabama has taken the lead in organization, having ar
ranged its apportionments to the last detail among the
churches, with men alive to their respective duties in Synod,
Presbytery, groups and churches, in the carrying out of this
freat plan. That Synod is presided over, for this campaign,
by a layman ? a busy business man ? Russell C. Booth, of
Birmingham ? and working with him is Rev. David Park, of
Pratt City, pushing forward the campaign in a way which is
simply inspiring.
In Arkansas, Mr. W. H. Whitmarsh, of Texarkana, the
general manager of a large lumber concern, has undertaken
the managership in his Synod and is actively pushing the
campaign.
The same with reference to Kentucky, where Rev. W. H.
Hopper, of Louisville, is in charge; in Georgia, where a busy
physician and surgeon, Dr. Marion McH. Hull, of Atlanta,
is in charge; in West Virginia, where Mr. J. M. Payne, of
Charleston, is head of the organization.
Other examples of enthusiastic and effective co-operation
could be given. This is enough to show that the great steward
ship drive is on; that men are seeing its wonderful possibilities
and are throwing themselves into it, heart and soul.
Of course, there will be difficulties. It would not be a
campaign if there were no difficulties, and there would be no
achievement worth the name. Be glad of the difficulties
and thank God for an opportunity to see His power over
difficulties work through a surrendered channel ? you being
. f f
that channel. v '
