Title The Sabbath - A Day of Rest
Description In preparation for the Sacrament service, the congregation was led in singing "Jesus once of humble birth, now in glory comes to earth." It was then that a six-year-old girl came to the pulpit and led the congregation in repeating the sacrament gem, "While all these emblems we partake, in Jesus' name and for his sake, let us remember and be sure our hearts and hands are clean and pure." After the passing of the Sacrament, we listened to the two two-and-a-half-minute talks given by a boy and a girl from the eight-year-old class. Then Came song practice. We sang with expression, "Do what is right, let the consequence follow. God will protect you when doing what's right." It was then time to separate for our individual classes. The parents remained in the chapel for their lesson. We went downstairs to our regular Classroom where our lesson was about the Sermon on the Mount. Our high school principal, C. L. Stewart, was our teacher. After class, we reassembled in the chapel where we sang, "Sing we now at parting, one more strain of praise; to our Heavenly Father, sweetest strains We'll raise." The Sunday School superintendent Called on our former neighbor.Mauritz Peterson to . give the benediction. It was hot now as we walked the six blocks back home. We tpok off our suit coats and carried them in our arms. At home we enjoyed a quick lunch of bread, butter, radishes, and cold homemade headcheese, topped off with a generous serving of ice cream that had been prepared the day before. Our Sacrament meeting was scheduled to begin at two o'clocks The walk back to church was not so pleasant now. It was hot summer. Even the chapel was hot. Some of the older sisters brought their fans and used them vigorously. The worship service was conducted by our Bishop A, L. Peterson, the town bank teller. During the service we heard from a youth speaker, a boy two years older than I. The ward choir sang one of my favorite hymns, "Each Cooing Dove." I especially enjoyed watching and hearing Daddy and the rest of the men in the choir 13
