Mack Kercheville is scheduled to be with the Rhomberg and Washington Sts. church of Christ for a meeting, Feb. 24 through Matrch 1. Services each evening at 7: o'clock. The public is cordially invited to attend.

Bro. Kercheville is a quiet, gentlemanly sort of fellow with modest, humble manners. But that tall, soft- spoken tabernacle houses a man of character; a man dedicated to the cause of Christ. Mack's eyes look unwaveringly into yours, uncompromisingly asking for an honest answer. (He doesn't know I'm writing this, so I expect he will have a long look for me when he finds out about it.)

Many years ago bro. Kercheville saw the thousands of Spanish speaking people of El Paso as "sheep without a shepherd" so far as the simple gospel of Christ was concerned, and detemined to do something about it. With singleness of purpose, and at great personal sacrifice he has stayed at this task. His truth-taught pupils have gone far into Mexico and elsewhere with N.T. Christianity.

Mack is not unknown in Burnet, and in former days received support from the Vanderveer church. Now he is partially supported by the Rhomberg and Washington Sts. church of Christ. He comes here to renew old acquaintances and to preach the word of God to all.

Plan now to hear the plain Bible lessons to be presented by this God-fearing man. Mark the date (Feb. 24-Mar. 1) services at 7: p.m. each day. During this time he may be contacted at 1608 Sherrard St., PL 6-4864. "PATSY JABBERS"

demands that we study His will, and answer religious questions for ourselves. (Rom. 14:10-12 Jn. 14:23)

(2) We must not fear name-calling. The faint-hearted are going to Hell. (Rev. 21:8) On their way, they "join the party" and "follow the majority." (Matt. 7:13-14) It takes courage to have personal convictions and stand firmly by them while the masses revile; but this is the price of freedom, here and hereafter; and this is necessary to break the power of name-calling.

"Cockle-Pasted Patsy-Jabber"

What is that? Define your terms please! What are its characteristics? Why do you call me this? Will you help me improve, so I will no longer be a "cockle-pasted patsy-jabber"?

You see -- name-calling loses its punch under Christian investigation. That is why name-callers refuse to have open study of issues. And you???
