of the MEYER MEMBER OF GOLDEN RULE Local Funeral Parlor Made Member of International Morticians Order Word has been received in Mason City that the Meyer Funeral home 243 Fifth street southeast has again been appointed as the member of the Order of the Golden Rule in this community This Order is an international af filiation of funeral directors having certain high ideals of service and rigid ethical standards Membership is not permanent and may be revoked at any time by the order Each year affiliation with the order automatically expires and the record of each member for the preceding year is then taken into consideration before he is again ac cepted Into this fellowship This ia the second time that the Meyer Funeral home has been ap pointed to uphold the high ideals of the order in this community The symbol of the order by which one may in nearly any community identify the local member repre sents a knight in full armor sup porting1 with his right hand a shield upon which is emblazoned the mot to the order Service measured not by gold but by the golden rule We notice also the love and sym pathy of this man who had come under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit he added He had accepted the fundamental principles of a new faith We take notice of the humil ity of this officer who might as well have been haughty Faith can not grow in a vain and proud mind Self conceit Is like a frost to the ten der bud of faith Peter was not ori ginally humble but had to become so before he could be useful in the Lord3 work God can speak to a humble per non and a humble person is willing to listen to God To a humble pelson God CBO reveal many things and in such a person the Holy Spirit de lights to abide and work Spiritual ignorance and unfamillarity with the Word of God accounts for much of the weakness and Ineffectiveness of the Christians faith We know God too little to trust Him Our spir itual learning has not kept pace with the worldly We need the ad monition Grow in grace and know ledge of our Lord and Saviour Je sus Christ On Blessing Home At St James Lutheran church the Rev O Mall gpoke on Gods Blessing in the Home In part the speaker said Jesus being every where He brings His blessings to all who accept Him He blesses the home if the occupants fear the Lord and live according to His will The unbelieving world is careless and thoughtless possessing no hu mility no patience and no spirit of forgiveness In such homes the blessings of the Lord cannot abide The Lord looks for a Christian heart a true living faith and fear and love to God The Luther league met in
