CALVARY .... WHERE LIFE BEGINS
Sand, rolling landscape. l-lot wind, softly blowing, fans the cheek
of the lone figure. l'le stands gazing into the western sky. Sun is sinking
among the purple hills. Silence-such silence-A leaf floats lazily by, The
silhouetted figure stands long, then face lifts toward the sky, now aglow
with numberless sparkling diamonds. Ah! the wonder of it all. The magni-
tude. The majesty. And beyond these glories-GOD.
"ln the beginning God." Of such words, the finite mind fails in
complete comprehension. "And God said." These few words in the very
beginning of the Scriptures so capture the mind, so thrill the soul that the
Spirit is ever busy unfolding the meaning. It is as the breaking dawn. One
sees vaguely, but as ever increasing light appears, objects become clearer.
So as the Light of God opens and enlarges the vision, the wise follower of
Christ walks in that Light.
It is indeed with humble and grateful hearts that the students of
Calvary College dedicate this first issue of "The Covenanter" to the Word
of God-our Bible. ln this day of shifting sands, false doctrines and un-
belief, the Bible is our safe retreat. "Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my word shall not pass away." These are the words of Jesus. Time
cannot change them. Unbelief can have no effect. They stand secure
Therefore we not only dedicate this publication to the Word of
God, but first give our own selves to God, the author of the Word.

WHERE LIFE BEGINS .... CALVARY
From the wee land ot Scotland, that homeland so dear to many a lad and
Iassie, comes a story ot a courageous and taithtul band ot Christians known as the
Covenanters. During the sixteenth century, under the ministry ot John Knox and other
precious men ot God, the Protestant Reformation spread into Scotland. Bibles, which
had been excluded trom the country, were brought in and distributed everywhere.
The joy ot a personal salvation in Christ stirred the hearts ot many a man and woman
so that on August I7, I56O a group ot Christians signed a covenant to God pledging
their lives to I-lim. This covenant was known as the "Confession ot Faith" and as the
news ot it spread from town to town many more gladly joined the ranks ot these
Covenanters. In I636 during the lives ot the next generation the covenant was re-
newed, this time known as the "National Covenant ot ScotIand". It is said that
60,000 people gathered in the churchyard ot the Greytriars on February 28 to sign
the new covenant. Soon practically all ot Scotland added their names to this docu-
ment. While the people pledged their allegiance to their king yet the predominant
thought ot the covenant was tor religious treedom and a complete surrender ot their
Iives to God . . . Therefore, it is with a prayer of deep consecration that the students
ot Calvary College have chosen to name their Annual "The Covenanter". Their prayer
is that trom out its pages Christ may be revealed. He is the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the Ending. Though the beginning ot His earthly existence oc-
curred at I-Iis birth in the manger ot Bethlehem, yet we know that I-Ie was in the
beginning with the Father, tor Colossians I:I6 records "For by Him were all things
created" and Christ, I-Iimselt. said "Before Abraham was, I am" ........ . . .
Beginnings! What a wonderful word! This is the theme ot the 1938 Covenanter ....
