Slogans are great, but are useless unless applied in one’s own life. When I first went to college in late 1959, I learned the college slogan. “Recapture True Values.” Sounds great doesn’t it? Well, here’s the thing, to this day I still try my best to apply that slogan. I wonder if you do? It’s not an easy road, but it is worth every effort.
During the years approx. 1963-1968 I noticed something strange happening. The people at college were changing. The whole attitude was turning away from that slogan. New people had come in and deliberately began to tear that down. They worked internally to destroy the college and the church connected to that college. They did their job. BUT, what they could not do was turn everyone against that slogan. Sadly, what the world sees and hears are all the bad and deliberately distorted stories about the college and church personnel.
And, on top of that, those characters that came in to destroy also worked to mislead the leaders. And are still at it to this day with their childish websites, and childish accusations.
Yet, here I am today telling you plainly and clearly that during the years I was at college, the leaders and people I knew personally were striving to live that slogan.
But, it doesn’t matter what men did, for that was long ago prophesied. What matters is this: What are YOU and I going to do in our personal lives? Why don’t you join me in once again “Recapturing the TRUE Values” and live them? Individual examples are actually even more impressive than what a group does. Peope don’t and can’t always relate to a group as much as to individuals. Try it, you’ll like it.
