Se veral points brought out in the speech were: 1) “Why is the church in the education business?” An swer: “... to confront one with the other, the world’s claims about the nature and purpose of men and things, and the Christian claim about nature and purpose of man and things, for the mutual information of each.” 2) Standards of excellence in a Christian understanding of education may not coincide with the standards excellence in secular education.” “We are asking for the church to find in its theology some guides for what it ought to be doing educationally.” 3) The Christian student’s vo cation is that he is called to be a student. His avocation is a living responsibility in a community where each per son is known and loved for himself. This community has a Christian structure and Christian values.
