Next Sunday evening at 7:30 O'clock, I will discuss, from the standpoint "I" common sense and righteousness, some of the questionable form i of amuse, merit. Wo invite the public to attend the services next Sun? day, and pass judgment on the message you heat. Nobody will be abused or scolded. It is just a common sensit talk about facts, aad everyday life. So those who indulge id the no called questionable forms of amusement need feel no em? barrassment about coining. Wo ask you lo come, and listen, ihd think, in the hope that all may find the service helpful. Toll your friends about this subject, ami bring them out to the meeting next Sunday morn? ing and nvening, especially in the nvening. Incidentally let me mention that in all of our services until Christin is, we lake a Rpeuial iifTerilig for the starving and shivering millions in Buropu and in China. Help swell these funds to save the lives of mil? lions of helpless children and Others. It is a good way lo ap? proach Christmas, and we must make Christmus tho climax in lour liberal giving, for the sake of our Master und the dying multitudes. A. L. Shumate, Pastor.
