We will begin a new
year ri°xt Sunday. Let everyone
begin now to m ike it a great yearj
in the v. rk of the church. The
fit Id . are whiteunto harvest and the
Lord of the harvest is seeking for
labor; :■ He asks, "Why stand ye
here idle all the day?" With some
it is now perhaps the eleventh boiir
and the last call. Have you any
r gre's about the results of this
year's work in our church? Would
you have next year's work to be
different? If so will you help make
it so? There are places that can
have a larger church and Sunday
school than Lexington, but none
that can have a better one if we
will do our part. Meet me at the
church next Sunday morning and
we will begin the new year's work
right.
