It was noted that righteous living re- quires right relationships. Jesus calls us to love and pray, even for our en- emies, not seeking revenge when we' ve been wronged. After the manner of Friends, a time of quiet communion with God, as well as praise time, was observed in open worship. Glenn and Sue Leppert were visitors.

From reports the hunting hasn't been too successful. Hunting with Roger Underwood is his school friend Mike Parks. Mike's dad, Kenneth Parks, was the school superintendent at Esbon years ago. Friday, Colleen Baker joined Pat Diemart, Ionia, on a trip to Hastings. Last Tuesday, Joan and Wayne Bro- eckelman were in Downs and then Beloit to visit with grandson, Tyler. Jim Rogers, Smith Center, joined Irma and Don Fogo last Wednesday as they made their trip south of Esbon. Their purpose was to look over a pas- ture used by Danny Simmelink. They were hunting for the graves of twin baby Rogers girls that they had been told years ago were buried there. They think they found the correct area but found no stones, so can't be certain. Megan Frost, a Kansas State Uni- versity student in Manhattan, stayed part of last week in Mankato when she stayed nights with grandma, Vera Frost, who is a patient in the Jeweli County Hospital. Bits and pieces of rain fell last week in this area.

The third Sunday of Easter was celebrated at the Esbon United Methodist Church with Deanna and Roger Underwood at the door and greeters of the morning. Rod Rose, lay person, brought the message. Musi- cians were Wanda Thummel and Janet Kriley. The acolytes Jerrod Gillet and Mason Higer. Larry McNabb and Roger Underwood the ushers and Lane Underwood assisted with communion. Mason Higer was this morning' s guest. As lay speaker Rod spoke to the chil- dren he told of an old cottonwood tree that was planted by his great-great grandfather, and still stands and is a symbol of his ancestors, as the cross is the symbol of Jesus Christ and what it meant that Jesus had hung on'the cross. The morning's special was a piano solo played by Jerrod. Rod read scrip- tures from Matthew, John and Luke before his sermon which he titled "Faith Through the Holy Spirit." They did not believe. They saw him, but some still doubted. Godcreated us so we should believe but even his disciples found it hard to believe. He wants us all to come in faith and to believe even what we can not see, but also still we should believe and have faith. Let God know that you do believe with your heart and soul. Have the Holy Spirit in your life. The persons present were most thank- ful for what rain they received, but more is needed. Prayers will continue for Vera Frost and all who are fighting health problems. Fellowship followed church with all gathering in the base- ment for a time of enjoying each other. "He lives."
