Bethel Hymns (by Mrs. Elizabeth Sowers)

During her lifetime Elizabeth (Kerfoot) Sowers published a collection of Bethel Hymns. Copies of this small hymnal were distributed throughout the congregation. One of which was in the hands of one of our Sowers cousins who donated it to The Bethel Memorial, Incorporated. I do not know how many other copies exist. This copy of the little hymnal will eventually be housed in the Clarke County Historical Society's museum in Berryville, Va.

The opening page of the hymnal reads like this:

Here you can see how small this hymnal really is when compared to Peter Cook's right hand.
