Notes provided by BF, student assistant, 2010/2011
Archivist's notes, ca. 2007: Evangelical Free Church meeting or conference. 1. Opens with sermon or lecture re the nature of power. 2. Dr. Benson or Benton prays, and quotes Elton Trueblood re shoddy work. 3. Announcement of a 15-minute break, followed by a business session. There is a reference to "Dwight" [possibly Dwight Johnson, TWU staff member?] and the tape cuts off. ca. 30 minutes. Very poor sound quality.
