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,

those who indulge id the no

amusement need feel no em?
barrassment about coining. Wo
ask you lo come, and listen,

may find the service helpful.

the meeting next Sunday morn?

Others. It is a good way lo ap?

make Christmus tho climax in

of our Master und the dying
