Religious Week Speakers
Are Evaluated, Quoted
Dr. Albert Edwards, pastor of
First Presbyterian Church in Har
risburg, Virginia, and a native of
Scotland, spoke to Salem students
Wednesday night on “Finding the
Will of God In My Life.”
Dr. Edwards, with his fascinating
Scottish bro.gue, delivered a stirring
talk. He pointed out that man, if
he is trul3' seeking the will of God,
must follow the laws of God.
He explained that in seeking
God’s will, one must use his intel
ligence, his talents, and his oppor
tunities for service.
After finding the will of God,
Dr. Edwards emphasized. His will
must be followed throughout every
facet of man’s life. If one is truly
searching for God’s purpose, he
must be willing to accept that pur
pose at all cost.
The students were impressed with
the simplicity and directness with
which Dr. Edwards spoke. Many,
after the program was concluded,
had the opportunity to speak per
sonally with Dr. Edwards.

Rev. George Kemp
As Mr. Kemp arose to speak,
Salem girls’ eyes were placed upon
him never to be removed until he
reached his final “amen.” The girls
received his message on prayer
with deep thought and serious con
His first and most important
point was: “Let’s begin, and let’s
pray. We must begin on a level
where we can pray and mean it.
Each of you should pray your own
Mr. Kemp’s second point was:
“Prayer is a friendship with God.”
Pie said, “Prayer is just as simple
and profound as friendship. Prayer
was never a monologue, but a dia
There are five main points to
Christian prayer which make ^ up
the ideal. The five are adoration,
confession, thanksgiving, interces
sory, and petition. Actually we
start with petition, said Mr. Kemp,
for we meet God not as theocentric
people but as egocentric people.
“Why is prayer not an option ?
It is a natural instinct. It calms
us down. It gives us strength and
gets life back in to focus. It
helps to express our dependence
on God just to know He is near.”
“Why do we fail in our prayers ?
We still have a childish idea about
prayer, and we have not grown in
prayerlike ways. Also, we are too
“Where is God ? God is in our
hearts. Prayer has made the finest
men. It made Jesus. Men always
came to Christ to say, ‘Lord, teach
us to pray.”
Dr. Herbert Spaugh
Dr. Herbert Spaugh, pastor of
the Moravian Little-Church on the
Lane in Charlotte, North Carodina,
widely-sought counselor, imminent
columnist, spoke to an eager group
of Salem girls Tuesday evening.
Dr. Spaugh spoke to his large
interested audience about marriage.
He called his talk “The Pathway
to a Happy Marriage.” His re
marks on the subject have been
compiled and are available in
booklet form. Dr. Spaugh began
the evening by defining marriage
and the two possible ceremonies.
He proceeded to reveal life after
the actual ceremony and gave the
audience his Ten Rules for a
Happy Marriage, one of which was
do not marry in haste. Dr. Spaugh
told of' several couples whom he
had refused to marry because he
thought they had not put adequate
thought behind their impulse.
From his Seven Marriage Ad
justments Dr. Spaugh continued by
telling of love, that made the
couple ever take the vow. If
seems that not every couple who
want to be married is suited.
“Some must be taught to fall out
of love by dwelling on the things
they don’t like about that person,
just as falling in love they dwell
on the things they like,” said Dr.
