14 HISTORY OF THE VA CONFERENCE, E.U.B. CHURCH—D.F. GLOVIER

memory of the preachers, the people, the churches and other preaching
places of the Virginia Conference will be preserved and perpetuated through
succeeding generations. The memory of the just is blessed. —Proverbs
10:7.

There would be general agreement that no person is better suited to
render such a service than the Reverend David Franklin Glovier. His
service as a former secretary of Virginia Conference, for many years its
competent historian, for a half century an honored member of the
Conference, in most of that time serving in long and significant pastorates,
equip him to render this service fairly, factually and sympathetically.

The Reverend Mr. Glovier has been associated with many who still
actively serve, and if possible even more intimately with a veritable
“cloud of witnesses” some of whom are now “a long time in the Father’s
house.” At his request I am honored to prepare some words of anticipation
for those who would still regard their time as not too valuable to scan such
paragraphs. Any such will doubtless join Brother Glovier and myself in
heartfelt appreciation for the heroism and example of those who live and
serve, and not less for those whose sacrifice and devotion have been
rewarded with the victor’s crown, who now “rest from their labors,” and
whose works now “follow them.”
