Women, however, squeeze from the bottom of the tube of toothpaste first. As the bottom of the tube becomes empty, they roll that part nearly toward the top. There are reasons for this. One, it says clearly on the tube, "For best results, squeeze from the bottom." Women think reading a tube of toothpaste is like reading the Bible. If you don follow the instructions on the tube, you will go to hell. WOMEN ALSO think squeezing from the bottom is practicing sound economics.

Grimes Some 60 years ago, at some cottage prayer meet- ings, several Christians began to pray. The prayer meetings were held in several homes on the village here in Hogansville. During one of the prayer meetings at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.L. (Les) Johnson, the burden for a church was born in a group of about I0 people. That was theg of Antioch' BapXist Chch which was constituted on May 25, 1941 with 58 folks joining. THE CHURCH BEGAN to buy property when Mr. J.L. Johnson pawned his mule for $16.00 for the down payment on $150.00 worth of ground. Today the church sits on approximately eight acres of land with a four-year-old sanctuary and Sunday School wing. This Sunday, August 18, 2002, Antioch Baptist Church will celebrate her 61st anniversary. It is indeed a blessing and a thrill to look back over the more than half centutT and see what God has done for Antioch. By the wa); every church member can look back and see how God has blessed their church. As I speak with folks not only from our town, but also neighboring towns, it is a common thing to find peo- ple who have some kind of roots to Antioch. This Sunday we want to invite all our family and friends to come help us cele- brate with thanksgiving the goodness that God has shown to us. Sunday will be a great day and we hope you will come and be a part. DURING the morning service, we look forward to a special time of singing, preaching and fellowship. Immediately following the morning service, we have "dinner on the ground" (at least under the shed behind the Dolly Building).
