No Longer Embarassed

No Longer Embarassed

What do I do? This used to be an embarrassing question but these days I have plenty to do. I have been appointed by the churches to be of help to you during your university course and most of my time is taken up with doing just that, talking over all sorts of problems with students, and general counselling. My room is on the first floor of the Student Union and I am there every day. My work is complementary with that of the Student Counsellor, Mr. Taylor.

Some of my time is taken up with more directly religious work. I work in co-operation with the other chaplains, Father Matthias and the Rev. P. Stuart, and with the religious societies, though I am not attached to any of them. During the year I shall be organising lectures on the New Testament, a weekly worship service, special Sunday student services, arranging for overseas Church leaders to speak (last year we had Professor Coulson).

If you live in a hostel I shall probably meet you there ... if you only drink coffee in the cafeteria I shall more than probably meet you there. Please feel free at any time to come and see me whether your problem is religious or not. If I can help I will.—John Murray, Chaplain.
