The Golden Time
When Mom and I got married, golden wed
dings seemed just as remote to us as they prob
ably do to you. Matter of fact, folks celebrating
them seemed like museum pieces!
Now here we are, posing for our fiftieth anni
versary picture! Funny part of it is that we don’t
feel a bit like “old folks!”
Still, a couple can’t be married for half a
century without putting in a lot of living. Mom
and I have. There were times when we were so
happy we thought we’d burst . . . other times
when it didn’t seem as if we could find the
strength to keep going another minute.
Through it all, we’ve had our church. It’s
hard to put into words how important that’s been.
Maybe you’ll get an idea when I tell you this.
When Mom asked me what I’d like to do to cele
brate our anniversary, I said, “First of all, let’s
go to Church. I want to say a little prayer of
Mom smiled at me. “So do I,” she told me.

THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . .
ALL FOR THE CHURCH
The Church is the greatest factor on
earth for the building of character and
good citizenship. It is a storehouse of
spiritual values. Without a strong
Church, neither democracy nor civiliza
tion can survive. There ate four sound
reasons why every person should at
tend services regularly and support the
Church. They are: (1J For his own sake.
(2) For his children's sake. (3) For the
sake of his community and nation. (4)
For the sake of the Church itself, which
needs his moral and material support.
Plan to go to church regularly and read
your Bible daily.
