Open To AU by Parke Miller, President C.C.F. Last semester there was an organization on this campus called the Student Christian Movement, more commonly known as S.C.M. The Student Christian Movement, was a voluntary religious organization that attempted to sponsor activities which centered around the theme of religion in life.

Vatican Council Report at University of Utah The activities sored or S.C.M. were sponby the I will admit that there is a need for improvement. C.C.F. is an organization that does, not truly accomplish its purpose unless interested members of the college community participate. The executive committee of C. C. F. can plan vesper service, study groups, and involvement projects. It can sponsor panel discussions, and it can sponsor groups or individuals who speak on topics of concern to society, but if interested members of the college community do not participate, then C.C.F. has not done a satisfactory job. Purpose Explained Further As I stated earlier, part of the purpose of C.C.F. is to attempt to give organizational expression to the community of faith that exists on this campus. Whether your are a Christian or not, you are not to be excluded from the activities of C.C.F. C.C.F. on the whole does attempt to become a mission for Christianity, but participants in its activities are not required to affirm their belief in Christianity. If your philosophy of life conforms to that of Christianity, you may be interested in activities of C.C.F. If your philosophy of life does not conform to that of Christianity, you may be interested in activities of C.C.F. It doesnt matter if you call yourself an orthodox Christian or if you call yourself a materialistic existentialist, because if you have any philanthropic concerns at all, you will probably be interested in certain activities of C.C.F. In conclusion, I encourage you to participate in the activities of C.C.F., and If you feel the need, I encourage you to constructively criticize the activities or the administration of C.C.F. .. , .. .
