Resolutions The following resolutions were adopted by Fairview Baptist Church of Butler Association at their regular business meeting, August 8, 1914. In as much as our pastor, Rev. J. A. Smith, has seen fit to terminate his work among us, and since for" nearly fifteen years we, as members of this church, have profited by Rev. Smith's preaching and within that time he has greatly endeared himself to us-by his amiable character, his earnest devotion to duty, and the in terest he has manifested in our church; and since in the pulpit he has distinguished himself by presenting the Gospel in such a way as to reveal a depth of thought, a varied knowl edge of the Bible, and a true christian spirit; and since his pastorial labors have resulted in the wholesome pro-- " gress of the church, therefore be it ... Resolved, that we extend to Rev. Smith our sincere appreciation of his work among us. and we deeply re gret the loss of his leadership, that we send him a copy of these resolu tions, spread them on our records- and send a copy to the "Word and Way" and one of our local papers for publication. May the blessings of our Heavenly Father rest -upon him in his future Work. Minnie Kiersey ) . Iona Thomas Committee.
