 12        WOMAN'S MITE MISSIONARY  SOCIETY
 
 God for all he has to bear and all we need is to have the
 Spirit of God to meet them. You can never fight evil with
 evil, passion with passion.  We will have to do good by
 going up on the mountain of regeneration and climbing as
 high as we can. When we feel evil we need a change from
 darkness to light.  Love is a spiritual essence and no man
 can practice this doctrine unless he is born of God.  Love
 those who try to ruin your reputation for if you are a child
 of God you still have character. For character is like our
 home in Heaven, our salvation, they can't get to it. He
 ended by saying that the doctrine of overcoming of evil
 with good is good for pastor with people, husband with wife,
 and one with another. Singing by the choir.  Offering,
 $20.40. The Holy Communion was administered by Bishop
 Jones. We sang, shook hands and departed.
