Amid Editorial Praise

Gresham Retires from Ministry

WHEN the Rev. Paul N. Gresham, class of 1915, resigned as

pastor of the Kenilworth Presbyterian Church of Asheville,
N. C, last September, the Asheville Citizen paid him this editor-
ial tribute in its September 18 issue:

"There is a tradition of long service to one congregation
among Presbyterian ministers both here and elsewhere.

"Thus it is no easy task to sever the pastoral relation that
is rooted so deeply in the church and the lives of its members.

"This is true of the Rev. Paul N. Gresham who has been
pastor of the Kenilworth Presbyterian Church since it was
founded in 1934.

"Mr. Gresham has asked his congragation to join in a request
to the Presbytery to dissolve the pastoral relation and he plans to
retire December 31, leaving the church property free of debt
and a congregation that now has 650 members.

"Material values and numbers do not begin to tell the story
of the contribution Mr. Gresham has made to the Kenilworth
church and the Asheville community. His spiritual leadership
has been outstanding and his work notable.

"It is good to know that Mr. Gresham plans to continue liv-
ing here and that he will not break his years' long custom of
visiting the sick in and around Asheville."

His selection as "Rural Minister of the Year" also included
this appraisal:

"A fine builder and organizer of rural work. Dr. Wilson has
been both an outstanding minister and community leader. As
spiritual advisor and supervisor of chaplain's work for the Wood-
row Wilson Rehabilitation Center, he has served his state well.
He was a leader in establishing doctors in two rural communities
and recently helped get a refugee family settled ....

"A scholarly man, Dr. Wilson's thirst for knowledge and
truth continues to grow. He earned his doctor's degree from
Union Theological Seminary in Richmond after he was 50 years
old. An official of the seminary says of Dr. Wilson:

" 'He is a beloved pastor, a good preacher, and a consecrated
man of God. I can hardly think of a more able man.' "
