Two Colleges' S.C.M. Meet

Two Colleges' S.C.M. Meet

In a time of war it is very important that every person should be constantly thinking and rethinking out his whole position in regard to everyday problems and their relation to the State and to the individual. The fact, therefore, that 25 members of the Victoria and Canterbury Student Christian Movements met together at Cashmere Hills School for a week during the holidays to decide on the relevance of God and the World, assumes even greater importance than it would usually, in view of the fact that the next meeting may only be held under conditions of Japanese aggression. Leading speakers were Mr. Leicester Webb, leader writer for the Christchurch "Press," Mr. Keys, Vocational Guidance Officer, Christchurch, Rev. Merlin Davies, Canterbury College chaplain, and the Rev. Frank Engel of the N.Z.S.C.M. The dominating note was that students in New Zealand were at present passing through a period of preparation for Christian action when the opportunity revealed itself. To try to carry on this thought and relate it to the basis of a Christian faith, a series of study circles are to be held this term, details of which will be posted on the notice board, on Christian doctrine. The Apostle's creed will be taken as the basis and all those students who are interested, and members of Bible Classes, are invited to attend.
