|Excerpt from Proceedings of the Fiftieth Annual Session of the Union Baptist Association: Held With Hebron Church, Pickens County, Ala;, September 26th, 27th and 28, 1885
Resumed Order of Business: Invited visiting brethren to seats. Elders M. M. Wood and M. G. Lofton were cordially received.
Report of committee on Bible and Colportage Work was received and adopted:
Colportage And Bible Work.
Bro. Jas. G. Thornton, our Evangelist, has done a good work within our bounds, distributing the word of God and good religious books. I am astonished at the destitution in this Association. Many families without a copy of the Bible in their houses and, as to denominational and other religious literature, there is a great dearth. There is a solemn responsibility resting upon us, as a denomination, in this matter. We must see to it that the people within our bounds are supplied with the word of God, and such other reading matter as will tend to their elevation to a higher plane of knowledge in divine things and a corresponding degree of zeal and desire for the promotion of Christ's Kingdom in the world. In making our contributions let us not forget this important branch of Christian work.
On motion, - - Thomas and J. H. Foster, Jr., of the Alabama Central Female College, were received and invited to seats.
On motion, received brother J. Norris as corresponding delegate from Columbus Association.
Report of committee on Education was read, and on motion, was amended and adopted:
Report On Education.
Education is training. Properly considered, it includes the development of man, physically, intellectually and morally. To this end we believe denominational schools to be a necessity. A school that is non-sectarian is non-religious; and who would have his child trained without decided religious influences?
Howard College has no superior in the land in discipline and high intellectual and religious training. The same can truly he said of the Judson at Marion and the Central at Tuscaloosa. Let us look well to our footsteps.
Let us not be deceived. Let us not prove recreant to our denominational schools, for in them is hope of our country and the hope of the church.
