Special Sermon at Third St., M. E.
Picture of "The Ascension" Unveiled and a Splended Sermon Preached
Special services were held at the Third Street M. E. church yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock. It was the occasion of the unveiling of a picture painted and presented by William Nast, a member of the church. The painting, which is in oil, is on the wall at the rear of the pulpit. It is life-size and shows Christ ascending. His arms extended in the attitude of blessing. It is an admirably conceived and well executed piece of art and Mr. Nast deserves great credit both for his talent and his generosity.
A BEAUTIFUL SERMON.
The sermon, which was by the pastor, Rev. Mr. King, was a well prepared and thoughtful discourse. His text was from St. Luke, the twenty-fourth chapter, 50-51 verses: "And He led them out as far as to Bethany, and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven."
