Meeting of Kentucky-Tennessee General Association of Baptist Churches
By Eld. J. Robt. Paschal
Superintendent of Old Ministers' and Orphans Home, Camden, Tennessee

      We had a splendid session of the Kentucky - Tennessee General Association which met with Cross Roads Baptist Church about five miles southwest of Camden, Tennessee, and about two miles from the Old Ministers' and Orphans' Home, beginning on Tuesday night, September 15th, 1931 and continuing through Thursday afternoon. Owing to the general financial depression I think the attendance and contributions were not what they might have been, but the fellowship and brotherly love manifested were indeed fine. In addition to the business of the association, Eld. C. B. Massey of Pleasant Shade, Tennessee, and Eld. F. S. Gibson, of Jackson, Tennessee, preached some splendid sermons. And there were some real good discussions on the various topics on which reports were read. We believe the association was the means of encouraging people more generally to realize the vital importance of the purpose and needs of the Old Ministers' and Orphans' Home here and the foreignmission work as well as some other causes for which the churches of this association stand.

      Eld. S. W. Joyner was chosen moderator of the association, and Eld. T. L. Glisson was chosen assistant moderator. The writer was chosen clerk, and Joe Kee was chosen assistant clerk. Eld. C. B. Massey was elected treasurer.

      The next session is to be with Concord Baptist Church about seven miles east of Huntington, Tennessee, and is to begin on Tuesday night after the second Sunday in September, 1932.

      Brethren and sisters, as we enter the new associational year let us determine that by the grace of God we will be more consecrated in His blessed service.
