A large audience greeted Rev. H. L. Stimson in the M. E. church Sunday morning and welcomed him back for another year. And the message he brought was an inspiration to all. Text was found in Phil. 3rd chapter, 13 and 14 verses. Words in part; we always have something to look too, we have to go on to get a vision, we have not yet reached the heights. The need to know ourselves and not to live on past experiences, but to be continually looking– expecting great things in the future as we press onward. At the close of the service the congregation met at the altar in prayer for guidance that this year might be the best in service, and for a deeper spiritual life that would enable us to win the lost to Christ.
