Cabinet Sponsors
Scholars Banquet
Last Wednesday, October 30, the

Scholarship winners for this
year. Dr. and Mrs. Ansley Moore
and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Daven
port were other guests of the
Mr. Davenport was the guest
speaker. The title of his speech
was, “Why Are We Here?”. 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.
