"The soul can split the sky in two
And let the face of God shine through
But east and west will pinch the heart
That cannot keep them pushed apart
And he whose soul is flat, the sky
Will cave in on him bye and bye"
"The Lord is in His holy temple".
We welcome the Rev. W. Dempster Chase, D. D. of Utica. He will preach and administer the Sacrament this morning. Let us give him our prayers, our earnest attention, and a hearty greeting at the close.
You can stay to Sunday School. Say so. Do so. Ladies are invited to meet with the Earnest Workers or the Bible Class at 12:05.
Silver Jubilee Anniversary service in the Epworth League tonight. Mrs. S. W. Gallinger leads. A large attendance will help start the year right.
Doctor Chase will address the Union meeting tonight at the Baptist Church, on "Sabbath Observance". The speaker is the General Secretary of the New York State Sabbath Association. Don't miss hearing him.

News and Notes.
Tuesday, 9:00 A. M. the First Quarterly Conference will be held in the League room
A beautiful life came to a close last Friday when Sister DeEtta Rider rested from her earthly labors. Her steadfast hope and firm faith made her going seem more like one embarking on a long-contemplated journey. We deeply sympathize with the bereaved family.
Did you take copies of the Calendar last week for friends and others who do not attend church? Do so again. Extra copies on the table in the vestibule.
"The wisest and most interesting men talk little, think much, complain never, but travel on. How far have you come today, Brother?"
"It's good to have money, and the things money can buy; but it's good to check up once in a while, and make sure you hav'nt lost some things money can't buy."
Do you know? That your neglect of public worship helps delay the World's Redemption. That your presence gives life ot the preacher. That your face helps him more than you can know. That your faithfulness strengthens the grip of Christ upon your community, and hastens that for which you pray, "Thy Kingdom Come."
Note: The original owner of the bible was likely Nathaniel Morgan of Winfield in the 1850 census. His daughter Theresa married
Boughton Rider and they lived first in Litchfield (1870) and later in West Winfield (1900).
