Clyde Nichols Clyde Nichols Editor’s note: Rev. Clyde E. Nichols’ devotional columns appear on this page each week. He is the father of Rev. Gregory Nichols of Rockdale, minister of First Christian Church in Lexington.

TEMPLE—When Temple Daily Telegram Managing Editor Larry Ingram told Rev. Clyde E. Nichols in 1965 that he would run his inspir ational col- umn and “see how it go e s,” little did they realize it would become a regular feature on the Telegram’s Saturday editorial page for four decades.

From the beginning, Rev. Nichols’ Lift Up Your Eyes made an impact on readers and became an integral part of that Saturday edition.

These columns are now available in a new book, Lift Up Your Eyes—Devotions for Every Day of the Year. Nichols has chosen the best of his columns for this book of 365 devotions and each is matched with a carefully chosen memory verse from the Bible.

Using stories, humor, anecdotes and Scripture, these devotions speak to real life situations that all people face and helps them do a better job of confronting them.

Lift Up Your Eyes—Devotions for Every Day of the Year (ISBN: 978-1-4567-1994-4) is available on the publisher’s website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online retailers.

Rev. Nichols is minister emeritus of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Temple, where he served as senior minister for 23 years, from 1963 to 1986. He and w ife Marianne reside in Temple.

Book signing—The public is invited to a 90th birthday and book signing celebration for Rev. Nichols from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at the Gober Party House, 1516 W. Avenue H in Temple.
