Preacher Wanted:

The church at Frostproof, Florida is in need of a preacher, according to a letter I just received from one of their members. They cannot supply all of the support but believe they can help the preacher find the needed support. The church is not large (attendance near 60) but has nice facilities. If you are willing to do a lot of work and desire to live in Florida this just might be the place you are looking for. You may contact them by writing or calling L. Y. DuBose, 1110 West Parairie, Avon Park, Florida. I preached there for two years and will answer any questions that I can. (Tom Wheeler, 202 Sunset Drive, Poteau, Okla. 74953)

Frostproof is between Lake Wales and Avon Park about 65 miles from Tampa and 80 miles from Orlando, in what is called the sand-hills. The main income is from citrus products and cattle. The population of Frostproof is about 3,500.

"Christian Unity, How Promoted, How Destroyed. Faith and Opinion. By David Lipscomb." Some of you missed this one the last time around. It is an excellent little booklet on the subject. $1.00.

"Congregational Cooperation of the Churches of Christ, Involving Sponsorships, Centralized Power and Control, Orphan Homes and Herald of Truth" by Herbert E. Winkler is about to be forgotten. But it shouldn't be. It is still available. A most outstanding presentation. Originally published in 1958. Second edition in 1961. New material added. We recently received an order for 100 from one customer. If you don't have one, you best get one while you can. $1.00

"Who, What, and How?" by Clint Springer, is a "Study in Controversial Issues For Members Church of Christ." It was widely read a few years ago. It's good. We have a few copies. A 90-page $1.00.

DID YOU MISS THIS ONE THE LAST TIME AROUND? J.W. Middleton's book of Acts in i something you'll like very much, even if you don't normally take to reading poetry. Many have difficult to lay this book down after beginning. It makes the book of Acts especially interesting each verse in poetic form. Someone said that "Horace" said,

"For Gods and men and booksellers refuse To countenance a mediocre Muse."

Someone else said that "Martial" said,

"No man has more assurance than a bad poet."

Well, these "sayings" absolutely do not apply to brother Middleton's work! It's professional. Try i Excellent for gifts.

"Set Forth Your Case, An Examination of Christianity's Credentials" by Clark H. Pinno interesting little paperback offering a direct defense of the Christian faith in light of biblical revels modern culture. "Its author presents his apologetic against the backdrop of current humanistic ph and theology. Attacking the antichristian position, he maps out a battle plan around three general the resurrection of Christ, the authority of the Scriptures, and the historicity of faith." $1.50.

Church Divisions:

It has been our intention to be careful and not print notices of church divisions unless the sc caused by "liberals" forcing unscriptural projects on a congregation. Recently in the rush of bus printed two notices of divisions without giving due attention to what the divisions were about. WI be more careful in the future and pay closer attention to such notices before we print them. A Greensburg, Kentucky writes in response to a report of a division which took place there. The breti ing say, "If anyone needs further details please write to the Greensburg Church of Christ, Greens] 42743." This is a good idea regardless of who is at fault. W.E.W.

Help Me Lord

Lord help me when I'm weak And guide me when I'm strong

And keep me from the things that I am sure for me are wrong Help me to correct my steps

When crooked they may be And when a beam gets in my eye

I pray you'll let me see For there are many things I know

That I have yet to learn So help me keep thy statutes Lord

And from them never turn Forgive me of my sins 0 Lord

Don't turn thy back away In darkness and in light I ask

For strength along the way And last of all I ask thee Lord

To watch my friends and me And Let us when we leave this earth

Go home to live with thee.
