need for people to attend church, to do something about it them-
selves. As one preacher put it, "Everyone expects a preacher to
encourage a person to come to church but when a layman
urges church attendance, it packs more punch".
The whole community should be proud of the laymen in
our community who will give of their time to try and compel
people to attend church each and every Sunday. By the same
token it shouldn't be up to the Church Attendance Committee
to do all the work of urging people to come to church between
row and Easter. It should be the duty and privilege of every
church going Christian to back this campaign with active solici-
tation and visitation on the part of everyone. And while we are
about it, we will go a step further and point out that this church
attendance campaign activity on the part of the Christian workers
shouldn't end on Easter Sunday.
Urging church attendance is like anything else worth doing.
If it is going to be done right, it will of necessity be a full-time
job and not just for three months.
Surely you will do your part in this undertaking and make
it a point yourself, to be in church each and every Sunday. If
you just take care of you, everything will go just fine.

Lynn W. Suttle, minister "or Je-
hovah's Witnesses of Port St. Joe,
has been invited as a delegate min-
inter to attend the first 'three-day
ministerial convention of the new
year scheduled to be held at the
Leon High. School Auditorium in
Tallahassee, January 29-31. Mr.
Suttle is preparing to join upwards
of 600 other ministers and mission-
aries from, several states assem-
bled -by the Watchtower Society to.
develop the theme, "Do The Divine
"This is strictly an educational
program", said Mr. Suttle, "design-
ed to instruct and encourage dedi-
cated Christians to fulfill Jesus'
command to 'go ye, therefore and
make disciples of all the nations
teaching them .' and bear-
ing 'witness' to the 'good news' of
God's Kingdom -as the means of
bringing peace to earth."
Mr. Suttle reports that he
Watchtower Bible an dTract So-
ciety stands unchallenged as the
world's largest non-sectarian minis-
terial association having made
startling strides in its missionary
accomplishments during the past
few years. Watchtower missionar-
ies serve in 175 countries and 'have
85 branch offices established for
teaching and training ministers in
foreign lands.
New York's Sunday News, Au-
gust 3, 1958 told of 99,000 Witness-
es of Jehovah preaching God's
Kingdom blessings behind the iron
curtain and in spite of great per-
secution 'the number 'doing the Di-
vine Will' continues to increase.
During the summer of 1958 over
253,922 ministers and missionaries
serving Jehovah in these many
lands 'gathered for a sensational
eight-day assembly in New York
City where they witnessed the wa-
ter 'baptism of 7,136 new Witnesses
of Jehovah "to live henceforth ac-
cording to the Divine Will".-N. Y.
Journal-American, July 30, 1958.
The New York Mirror, August 1,
1958 broadcast in bold headlines:.
"Witnesses Growing. 70,000 Each
Year." ,
Mr. Suttle states that he is hap-
py to be associated with an organi-
zation sue has Jehovah's Witnesses
which "aims for spiritual beauty"
in doing God's Will and which sta-
tistics show is ,the fastest growing
religious service organization on
record. All of Jehovah's Witnesses
of Port St. Joe are making arrange-
ments to accompany Mr. Suttle to
Tallahassee to take full advantage
of the three-day program and ser-
vice activities. They plan to share
in offering to the public all kinds
of valuable Bible aids: including
The Watchtower, which has the lar-
gest circulation of any religious
journal, published semi-monthly in
many languages to more than 3,-
750,000 subscribers world wide.

Beef and brown gravy, rice, snap
beans, apple sauce, buttered white
bread and milk.
Tuesday, January 5
Spaghetti and meat sauce, cab-
bage slaw, cherry pie, white bread
and milk.

Mr. Suttle promises a later re-
port spotlighting program details
of the Tallahassee Watchtower
Convention which may interest lo-
cal Bible readers; all sessions are
free and open .to interest -persons.
