Call to Baptist Laymen,
Dear Brother: In the name of our
Master, we ask your earnest, prayer
ful consideration of this call to at
tend our laymen's mass-meeting Sun
day afternoon, December 8, during
the meeting of tho State Baptist
Convention in Orangeburg. The
meeting ls called by the undersigned
Baptist laymen, to promote the Lay
men's Missionary Movement in South
Carolina in line with what is being
planned throughout the South.
We believe this Is one of the most
Inspiring and promising of. the re
cent movements for the extension of
Christ's kingdom. Its Christlike
spirit, its compfehensive purpose ana
its practical plans have won both the
enthusiastic approval and hearty co
operation of many of our consecrat
ed business men, and wo believe that
many others will express as hearty
endorsement when tno plans are pre
sented to them.
The movement has been defined as
an "awakening of Christian laymen
to the urgency of the Great Commis
sion; an honest effort on the part of
laymen to fulfill in the next twenty
five years their Lord's command to
preach the Gospel to every creature.
Its aim is to induco the Christian
layman to employ his influence, his
money and his time in his religion iu
the same practical, common-sense
way thpt he does in his business or
profession." The force of this ap
peal to Baptist laymen was seen In
the enthusiasm with which it was
greeted in tho recent Southern Bap
tist Convention at Richmond.
South Carolina Baptists are known
as a strong missionary body, but we
have not yet realized our strength or
fully recognized our obligation, nor
will we do so until more of our lay
men consecrate their strength to this
great work of the Kingdom.
Earnestly hoping that you will at
tend the meeting and that you will
enlist other laymen,
Your co-workers in His Kingdom,
This call is signed by 41 promi
nent ministers of the Baptist church
In South Carolina.

which were concealed various kinds
of useful utensils requisite to kitchen
furnishings, presented by the guests.

Upon the approach of Thanksgiv
ing the thoughtful mind naturally
reverts to the past, particularly the
year past, the blessings for which
wo are thankful and the misfor
tunes for which we should be thank

with encouraging facts-a prosper
ous nation, a nation free from pesti
lence, famine and war. Our own
State, and particularly our own
county, is peculiarly blessed In
temporal things. Individually we
can every one find much to be thank
ful for. We call to mind the poor
creature who thanked God that she
had only one leg, "because I've
sho'ly got ?ust one foot to get cold,
and I'm powerful handy with crutch
es." If we but look about us, we
surely see marvelous things to be
thankful for, particularly those of
us who have health and loved ones
about, and plenty. Let us all now,
on the eve of this great American
holiday, "Count our many blessings
one bv one." M.V.S.

the county seat of Wyoming county.
It was a thriving vlllago of somo 400
inhabitants. Tho principal industry
was lumbering.
