It is not rude, envious, boastful, prideful, eas- i ily angered. It does not keep a list of grievances and does not I delight in evil. 'So says 1 Corinthians, chap- ter 13 in my Bible. Cead mile failte iI :~$$~ ! A couple of years or so ago, when Rick was still with us, he printed a Grand Center School souvenir card in the Journal. My Mother, Pearl Margaret Harris i and her sisters, Jessie Harris, Lois Harris, and their cousin, Helen Harris, all attended school at Grand Center during the time this card was given out. The Graham boys were also stu- dents. Arthur, Harold, Archie I and possibly Alvy Graham. Also, Veris Wright, Orial Mayfield, Isla Shippert. I imag- ine that this was probably given as an achievement award, since all these children were different ages and couldn't have been in the same class, but might have been the whole enrollment. I re .lly enjoyed getting to see this card. . My grandmother, Mothers' rrirther, was a teacher at one time at Grand Center.

Stephen was called be- fore the Jewish council. The fact that he was filled with the Holy Spirit made it possible for him to give a defense which they could not refute. In fact, Stephen's defense became an indictment against the Jewish leaders because they rejected Christ. Stephen realized that Ju- daism had been replaced by Christianity, and the Jews did not like to hear this. Harold Hughes, accompanied by Harry Hoggard, brought a beautiful special, "You're Not Home Yet." We have a praise team prepar- ing for our revival, which begins Sunday, September 8. The praise team practices each Sun- day at 5 p.m. Our Sunday School year will begin Sept. 2. We have classes for all ages. We are taking appointments for photos for our church direc- tory. The photos will be taken Sept. 4 and 5. Next Sunday, John Talley of Stillwater, director of Fellow- ship of Christian Athletes, will bring our message. This will be an especially good service for young people. We will have a fellowship dinner after church. Perkins Church by Terry Tharp Last Sunday joyed our annual cial.
