Sister Old Time Prayer Meeting Died

Dr. Robert G. Lee wrote what is called a church death notice: Sister Old Time Prayer Meeting died recently at the First Neglected Church on Worldly Avenue. Born many years ago in the midst of revival fires, she was a Strong healthy child, fed largely on testimony and scriptural holiness, soon growing into worldwide prominence, and was one of the most influential members of the famous church family. She was a fine influence for good, gathering in a multitude to hear the story of Him who wore a seamless garment. For the past several years Sister Prayer Meeting has been failing in health, gradually wasting away until rendered helpless by stiffness of knees, coldness of heart, and weakness of will power. At the last she was but a shadow of her former self. Her last words were asking about the absence of her loved ones, busy in the places of worldly amusement. Her older brother, Class Meeting, has been dead for many years. Other experts including Dr. Works, and Dr. Joiner, disagreed over the cause of her illness, in spite of large doses of organization, socials, contests, etc. A post mortem revealed lack of spiritual food, faith and a changed heart. Only a few were present when she passed away. There were no flowers. Miss Ima Modern sang “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere,” but no one had any idea where it was. The body lies in Bygone Glories Cemetery. In honor of her going, church doors will be closed on Wednesday, except for the third Wednesday of each month, when the Ladies Pink Lemonade Society will serve free drinks for the men’s handball team.
