Baccalaureate Sermon.
Dr. C. R. Gray brought to the 15
seniors of Mildred High school a
very interesting message on the
subject of conceptive thinking, using
as a basis for his discussion
these words: "As a man thinketh
in his heart, so is he." He brought
out in a very able way that the
power to think is a human charasteric
which sets man above all
other of God's creations. By fitting
illustrations the speaker showed
how one even in prison or in
a dungeon as was John Bunyan,
can live an abundant life in the
world of thought.
The speaker brought this truth:
That the thought results in the
act, the act becomes a habit, that
habits form character and that
character determines human destiny.
He pointed out that the
greatest discoveries in the field
of science had been tested in
God's laboratory millions of years
before man.
The baccalaureate services .were
held Wednesday night at 8:30
at Navarro.
