The 1967 Biennial College Meeting

From thirty-two nations, for one purpose they came. Over five thousand five hundred college students, faculty, and advisors attended the 1967 Biennial College Meeting last August 24-26 at The Mother Church in Boston. They came by chartered planes, buses, etc., from forty-nine states, from Canada, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, Africa, India, several Far Eastern countries, including Japan, Indonesia, and Thailand, and there was also a large delegation from the British Isles and Europe.

Through papers, testimonies, and comments from the floor students shared some outstanding experiences in proving the efficacy of Christian Science in their individual lives and in their organizations' work on campus. There was an atmosphere of spiritual discovery, exploration, searching, at the three-day meeting; students were eager to learn how to live Christian Science to serve better the needs of their fellow students, their community and nation, their world. The earnestness, maturity, and responsible dedication of these young Scientists—many of whom had come hundreds or even thousands of miles to be present—was a testimony to their deep commitment to the Cause of Christian Science and to their desire to demonstrate its teachings more effectively in their own lives and in their college organizations.
