Preacher Accepts Brother s Offer To Preach At Church After Four-Year Separation MURPHY, Aug. 16—(/P)—The Bishop of the Northern faction of the Fundamentalist Church of God stood on the same platform here with his brother, Bishop of the Southern faction, and invited him to attend the General Assembly of the Northern faction in New York next month, after a four-year cleavage. The invitation came yesterday i at the start of the 42nd Annual Assembly of the Southern Faction in the Fields of the Woods on Burger mountain 29 miles south west of here. It was extended by Bishop Homer A. Tomlinson, gen eral overseer of the Northern Faction. His brother, Bishop Milton A. Tomlinson, general overseer of the Southern Faction, replied with out committing himself “I hope you enjoy your stay here. We are only trying to do our father’s word.” He referred to their father, Bishop A. J. Tomlinson, whose death in 1943 precipitated the break between the brothers. Their father had founded the sect. Bishop Milton was elected gen eral overseer by the Presbytery, but Bishop Homer challenged the r validity of the election, claiming his father had named him suc cessor. Bishop Milton expelled his brother from the church late in 1943. Bishop Homer then set up a headquarters for his faction in New York, while Bishop Milton re mained head of the Southern branch with headquarters at Cleveland, Tenn., where the sect was founded. The Annual Assembly of the Southern Faction will continue this week in the Cleveland, Tenn., tabernacle, and Bishop Milton in vited his brother to speak then. Bishop Homer replied he would be happy to do so. More than 5,000 persons were lere yesterday. CHURCHES UNITE FOR OBERVANCE Christian Education Week Featured In U. S., And Canada CHICAGO, Aug. 17. Protestant churches of United States and Can ada will unite next month in ob servance of Religious Education Week to proclaim to the world that the Christian religion offers mankind its only hope for the future, according to Dr. Roy G. Ross, general secretary of the In ternational Council of Religious Education, sponsor of the obser vance. Using the theme “Faith is the Victory,” the churches of 40 major protestant denominations and of 634 interchurch councils will celebrate this week for the seventeenth time, Sept. 28-Oct. 5. Nationally known poliireal, civifc, educational, and athletic leaders are giving their support. The best efforts of our national and world leaders alone can not safeguard ou.r material and spirit ual culture for future generations, Dr. Ross warned. Pointing out the gloomy predictions of scientific, political, and military leaders, Dr. Ross asked, “Did a generation ever have such need for this af firmation, “Faith is the Victory”, “It is only as we look to tthe Source of greater wisdom and power that we can h/ve confi dence in the future. The Christian religion, with its faith in a God that is still Sovereign of the uni verse, Father of mankind, and Eternal Creator of all that has been and will be, is the only hope for mankind in the present day world.” Four Sermon Thoughts Smug sanctimonious piety is not religion. Test your sincerity by your attitude toward imper fect people. Lack of charity is a cardinal sin.Matt. 23:14: Woe unto you scribes and Phari sees, hypocrites! Few men take as much thought about building a life as they do about building or even renting a house. Your life is eternal, but the house will be old in one or two generations. —Luke 6:48: He is like a man who built a house. There is a method by which we can lay hold of infinite power. We can use God’s power to move mountains.—Heb. 11: 1: Now faith is giving sub stance to things helped for, the proving of things not seen. The universe is more than a phantasm. It is God’s project ed thought, fixed for countless ages. But our spirits will live after the universe passes. — Acts 17:28: In him we live and move and have our being. EFFICIENT TAX MAN NEW BERN, Aug. 16—A city tax collector, John F. Rhodes, Jr., is regarded here as an efficient collector of taxes. He reported Friday that through Aug. 6, he had collected 95.44 per cent of all 1944 tax bills, 95.43 per cent of all 1945 tax bills, and already had on hand $42,907.01 in prepaid 1947 city taxes. ‘UNCLE JOE DIES’ ASHEVILLE, Aug. 16 — (TP)— “Uncle Joe” Mainer, 97-year-old mountain music maker and fre quent participant in mountain folk festivals here, died in an Ashe ville hospital this morning. News In The World Of Religion By W. W. RfclD Richmond, Virginia, recently contributed 150,000 pounds of clothing, shoes, and bedding to Church World Service for relief in needy countries of Europe. Led by the Richmond Committee for over seas relief, an interdenominational emergency agency, the churches, the schools, the Boy Scouts of America, the merchants, the trucking companies and many so cial and civic organizations united and in one day made a thorough house-to-house canvass for still wearable material. Similar cam paigns have been since conducted in Petersburg, Hopewell, and other Virginia communities. In presenting to Dr. Daniel A. Poling, of Pniladelphia, president of the World’s Christian Endeavor union, a medal of merit for “out standing services to t11 e United Nations during the recent war,” Secretary of War Patterson cited in part: “Dr. Poling exerted a worldwide influence upon the young people and youthful leaders in the Christian church. . .he did much to influence religious lead ers of all faiths concerning the ‘Statement of the Christian Con ference on War and Peace.’ On his tours abroad, he conducted the preliminary discussions out of which came pronouncements of Protestantism in regard to the moral issues of the war.” Dr. Pol ing was the Protestant church voice on the commission which re cently reported to President Tru man recommending universal mil itary training for all American youths. The Alden Speare Memorial hosoital. maintained by the Meth odist church in Nanping, Fukien Province, China, under the super intendency of Missionary - Doctor Gerald L. Downie, of Ringgold County, Iowa, is greatly enlarging its field of medical service by the contribution of equipment from America. The Harmony circle class of First Methodist church, Kankakee, 111., has given the hos pital a new ambulance for service in nearby communities; Grace Methodist church, Kokoma, Ind., has given a much-needed refriger ator; the Methodist church of Monroe, Ind., has contributed an electrosurgical knife; and friends in Madrid, Iowa, have now en route to Nanping a mobile X-ray equipment. The hospital serves communities as far as one hun dred miles in all directions. “While spring has brought about a great change outwardly and has removed the indescribable feeling of cold, it has done nothing for people’s stomachs,” reports Dr. John Scherzer, Lutheran World Relief commissioner with CRA LOG in Germany to his American Lutheran associates. “Hunger con tinues to be the real problem in Germany. The food situation is becoming more and more critical. The one-sidedness of the diet is creating real health problems. The continued absence of fat and albu men in the diet is producing a nearly universal state of star vation. People may look very fat and healthy, but to touch their tis sue is like touching a sponge.” The German Protestant church es need thousands of hymnals. The World Council of Churches has $50,000 for the need. That would buy or print 40,000 hymnals in German in the United States or in England. Instead of this the Council spent the $40,000 for wood pulp, which it has shipped to Ger many. Meanwhile 450 German printers and other workers will be given employment, and som" 500, 000 hymnals will be produced at a cost of only ten cents each. The Council plans to purchase more wood pulp for the printing of Christian literature in Germany. In a recent survey of Christian churches in Japan, Dr. John H. Reisner, executive head of Agri cultural Missions, Inc., and an in ternationally known rural authori ty, found that in the pre-war days a great proportion of Protestant Christian missionary work was in Japan’s cities, while only about 100 churches were in rural areas. He found also that converts to Christianity were usually one out of a family; while he insists that only as whole families are led into Christianity can the faith be root ed in any land. Dtr. Reisner is proposing to the Foreign Missions conference of North America, and to its component mission bodies, that 300 new missionaries be trained and sent to Japan in the next few years to work on rural and village and agricultural prob lems. They would work on the matter of livelihood from the land, the home, youth, religious edu cation, and worship. “If we ex pect the Christian movement to provide any new leadership in solving these hard, tough, every day problems of the village peo ple, we must give our mission aries the kind of training with which they can grapple with these problems,” he says. Bishop Darst To Preach Special Sermon Today At Wrightsville Beach Methodist Church Bishop Thomas C. Darst, retired bishop of the East Carolina diocese of the Episcopal church, will preach the special sermon at 11 a. m, today from the pulpit of the Wrightsville Methodist youth center. The Rev.

The sermon, will be delivered by one of the South’s leading churchmen, and religious leaders, Bishop Thomas C. Darst who needs no introduction to church people in this section, for he has won a place in the nearts of :housand.s for his lovable nature r and nis ability to bring a message which is remembered for it’s sin cerity and simplicity. Bishop Darst will preach at the 11 o’clock service, and many of his friends are expected to be on hand to welcome him. The little church on Harbor Sunday School Lesson Wise Words Concerning Honesty SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Wise Words Concerning Honesty Sripture: Proverbs 3:3: 11:1, 3; 12:17-22; 14:5; 23:10-11. By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. There are certain things, ac cording to the Book of Proverbs, that are “abomination to the Lord.” Among these are “a false oalance” (11-1), and “lying lips” (12:22). Whatever the Lord abominates is bad for man. The dishonest or lying person sins against his fel lowman, as well as against his Maker. Society depends for its irery existence, as well as for its welfare and security, • upon honesty m daily iite ana us re lationships. The fact that so many people are honest enables society to go on, and it is because so many people are dishonest that we have so many menacing prob lems and so little world security. Honesty begins with the individ ual in more ways than one. It has its rise and beginning in honesty with one’s self. Many people are not honest with themselves. They live in a world of illusion, or of self-delusion. The dishonest man would despise himself if he faced up honestly to what he actually is. He avoids that by the alibi that “other people do it,” “you can’t do business and be honest,” and similar by-words of the weak. A man has to settle with his own mind and will what sort of man he is going to be—a man of integrity, or a cheater and graf ter. According to that decision he will be an asset to society, or a prasite, living upon and robbi n g others, no matter by what polite legal fiction his action may be covered. When Zacchaeus, the Jewish tax-gatherer, who climbed into a tree to see Jesus and climbed down to receive the Master as his self - invited guest, heard the Master’s declaration, “This day is salvation come to this house,” he stood and said, “If I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him four fold.” That was the portion that a convicted thief was by Jewish law under obligation to restore, so that Zacchaeus was saying, in ef fect, “If I have grafted in my office (as its very nature made it easy and tempting to do) I’ve been a thief.” That plain sort of honesty with himself was the sure evidence of the reality of Zacchaeus’ con version. In a somewhat different way the Prodigal Son’s salvation began when he "came to him self,” and was honest with him self. So, honesty, like charity, begins at home; but like charity it does not stay there. It reaches out into every sphere and relationship of life. And it is the only basis upon which life can be sound and wholesome, and even safe. Only today I have been reading a list of the names and offenses of firms prosecuted under the food and drug law. Appallingly, it con tains the names of some of the best known firms in the country, emphasizing how much the very food that we eat and the drugs we use depend upon the simple integrity of those who produce them. Honesty is our deepest need. _ f Island has been gradually building a reputation for inspiring* services, Epps said. Music is one of the finest means of creating a proper setting. The talent of Mrs. Eric Norden violinist and teacher, will render two violin solos. She will be accompanied at the piano by David Blanchard. Mrs. Norton has played with the North Carolina Symphony, while Blanchard has studied with the Westminister Choir school. A young minister, Rev. R o b t McKenzie, of Wilmington, will preach Sunday, Aug. 24th. On Aug. 31st, the sermon will be de livered by the pastor of the Jacksonville Methodist church, the Rev. L. L. Parrish. A cordial invitation is extended all vacationists to attend worship service and Sunday school at the new Wrightsville Beach Methodist church, on Harbor Island. Sunday school, for all age-groups is at 10 o’clock. Preaching services are at 11.
