Perennial issues

At SDB Exec, Sabbath Recorder editor, Kevin Butler quotes from a 1976 article titled "Why have Conference every year?"
"Gatherings at Conference are safeguards against apostasy and disintegration. They cultivate acquaintance and create aspiration for holiness and Christian labor. They often result in conversions, broaden our conceptions of Christian doctrines and duty, and in many ways are worth vastly more than they cost...."
And then Kevin notes:
Here’s the fun thing. This 1976 SR was quoting from another Sabbath Recorder—July 20, 1896!
