I delivered two commencement addresses recently, one at Belhaven College in Mississippi and the other at Marion College in Indiana. One school is in the Calvinistic tradition, the other in the Arminian. Watching the graduates receiving their diplomas was a thrilling experience. There is hope for the nation, and for the churches, if the vision of these young people ever comes to fruition and if their energies are tapped for the work of Christ’s kingdom. Among the graduates may be some of tomorrow’s spiritual giants: evangelists, pastors, missionaries, business men and women, high-minded and Christ-led political leaders who will help to shape the age to come.

I’m happy to report that CT staff members have pledged $1,095 toward the support of an Indian Christian scholar now studying in Scotland. We don’t like to ask readers to do things we are not ready to do ourselves. We consider this project a worthwhile investment in India’s spiritual future.
