Read Bro. McKinney’s article
this week on prayer meetings. He
makes some splendid points which
should be heeded by many churches.
It appears from the reports of

have a noble band of brethren in

arisen, or that, it was necessary to
make it public; but as Bro. Norton
has now been released from all
obligation to the brethren, it is to
be hoped that all things are work

love God and the cause of missions.
