S.C.M. Camp.. — ..and Brains Trust
..and Brains Trust
Prayer was the theme of the recant SCM camp at Wallis House. Different aspects of prayer—its relation to life, its practical applications, and its development through the ages were discussed by the different speakers.
Lively interest in the subject was shown, not only in the regular discussions, but in many impromptu ones. The important points emerging were the great need of prayer, the danger of interpreting it simply as petition and intercession and the necessity of realising that prayer is the seeking of God's will.
But the week-end was not entirely serious. There was plenty of fun—walks, games outside and singing round the fire. It was hard to come back to swot after such an inspiring time.
The Student Christian Movement hereby gives notice of its intention to hold a series of Brains Trust evenings early next month. All students are cordially invited to Bend in questions to the Secretary (care Men's Common Room) on ANY subject whatsoever that directly concerns Christianity. In the event of a large number of questions being sent in, preference will be given to those which are provocative and of general interest to students.
John Miller (Hon. Sec.).
