Religious Activities Portray Excellence When the first Crusaders thought of excel- lence they probably imagined an outstanding soldier or conquered land. To these first Crusad- ers excellence came in the form of brute force, and the control of others. JMany students view college as simply a time to prepare them for a high paying job or prestige. The Crusaders at Carey are of a different breed for they know as Jesus taught that excellence comes from inside not through vain outward appearances. As the alma mater states, Carey " hath taught us love and honor, taught us truth and right, while fitting every new Crusader with thine armor bright. " One of the ways in which Carey helps fit each new Crusader with excellence is through the reli- gious activities planned on and off by organiza- tions of the college. Some of the organizations taking leadership m spiritual development were the Baptist Student Union, Evangelicals for Social Action, Fellowhip of Christian Athletes, and the Ministerial Associ- ation. All of these groups proved themselves excellent this year, and set higher goals for such in the future. Most considered their programs and activities a success. There were a tremendous number of programs planned this year centering around the spiritual growth of members through Bible studies, share times, times, worship ser- vices, educational programs, prayer services, stu- dent — led revivals, and fellowships. These groups did not compete with each other but worked together for the cause of Christ. The largest of these was the BSU, but they all played a very important part in the total picture of reli- gious activities on campus. Very descriptive of the religious activities on campus, the BSU ' s emblem pictured arrows pointing in and out simultaneously, a reminder of the importance of both personal growth and outreach. It was in outreach that religious activities found the highest form of excellence. The pro- grams, fellowship, and numbers were important but real success lay in the ministry to others. The numerous fellowships were fun, but they were primarily concerned with relationship building. These groups did not seek influence and popu- larity but service to God, fellow students, and the surrounding communities. BSU exam care packages made the fall semester finals more bearable. Family groups built strong and lasting friendships. FCA meetings and prayers bonded together members to equip better ministry to athletes and campus folks. ESA did not just talk about social problems; members sought Christ — BSU ' ERS PAINTED A map of the world to show God ' s love around the world. MILES TO JACKSON by bicycle ed over S1200 for sun centered answers to the problems in which they could help. Most of the activities were somehow related to missions — campus, community, home, and foreign. Over $3000 was collected for sum- mer missions allowing William Carey to com- mission missionaries to Korea, New York, Washington D.C., and Detroit. The MA and BSU ministered at a nursing home. Students went to Columbia training school to lead juve- nile offenders in worship. Children at the Dean Ash children ' s home were shown much needed love. Juveniles and abused children learned through youth court volunteers of God ' s love despite a bad or unhappy past. Spiritual growth and Christian ministry were seen on the Gulf Coast and New Orleans cam- puses also. Newly formed BSU ' s appeared on both sister campuses as auxiliaries of more ma- ture organizations. Students participated in mis- sion activities, summer missions fund raisers, and Bible studies. Preceded by longstanding tradi- tions of chapel service on Hattiesburg and New Orleans campuses, the coast was not to be left out, and in September opened with a chapel series of its own. Nursing students of all faiths participated in the newly-formed Carey Christian Fellowship, and accented their physical training with spiritual ministering. It is through giving, not receiving that made the Carey Crusaders excellent. — Scott Hummel. 10 Student Life
