Remembering Spurgeon's birthday


This recognition of C. H.Spurgeon's 174th Birthday comes to you a day late due to stormy weather in our area on Thursday, June 19th. We had temporary power outage, heavy rains, powerful winds, and related attention-getters.

We are happy to report, however, that no serious damage was done to our home or store building. A very large tree in a nearby residential area was uprooted and made the Houston TV newscasts, but no injuries resulted.

At least two very notable men were born in Great Britain on June 19 -- King James VI and C. H. Spurgeon.

Both of these names were to become famously and uniquely associated with the dissemination of Christianity -- King James with his "authorizing" the 1611 Translation of the Bible, and Spurgeon with the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Both of their works follow them (Revelation 14:13) in a marvelous manner.

Today, both the King James Version and Spurgeon's sermons are more accessible to the world's population than at any time in ages past! No English Bible translation has been more widely read and influenctial than the KJV, and no sermons have been more widely circulated than Spurgeon's.

In honor of Spurgeon's birthday, we have published two small items which Spurgeon aficionados will probably want to have:

POCKET CARD -- C. H. Spurgeon's First and Last Words at the Metropolitan Tabernacle.

BOOKMARK -- C. H. Spurgeon's First and Last Words at the Metropolitan Tabernacle.

Both the credit-card size Pocket Card and the 2 1/2" x 7" Bookmark are plastic-coated for durability and protection from moisture. Both contain small photos of Spurgeon, the Metropolitan Tabernacle, and the famous Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Symbol of Moses lifting up the serpent (John 3:14-18).

We would be happy to send you FREE copies, but we need your address on a postage-paid envelope.

To receive 2 FREE copies of each of these items, please send a 42-cent Stamped Self-Addressed Envelope.

If you wish to order MORE than the 2 free copies of each item, enclose $1.00 per each four copies of either the Pocket Card or Bookmark, or both. Calculate the cost at 25-cents per copy for each item.
