TWU Fall Banquet: Chuck Colson - October 30

Audio 24a consists of the following recording:
Title: Chuck Colson – “God Demands Our Obedience”
Chuck Colson, a Christian leader, cultural commentator, and author who served as Special Counsel for President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973, speaks at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver during Trinity's Fall Banquet. He opens with a joke about being tape-recorded - referring to Watergate. He also tells several humorous anecdotes. He poses the question, “What can a fellow believe in now?” Colson discusses the breakdown of government and loss of trust in society. He discusses how modern society lives as if God is dead. Colson examines what it means to be a Christian in a religious sense and not merely a situational or cultural sense. The Church must stand on truth, on Scripture. Colson also examines the Trinity Western Statement of Purpose and the importance of the mission to create leaders who think as Christians constantly. He discusses how God has not used his triumphs, but the great defeat of his life - going to prison - to impact others. Colson argues that it is not what we do, but what God chooses to do through us, and our obedience to Him. He then examines what it means to love God. Finally, Colson calls out to the people not to simply sit smugly and be saved, but to go out and live as members of the Church of Christ in the middle of the decaying Kingdom of the world. President Snider thanks Colson for coming and makes a few closing remarks.

Title: Dr. Charles Malik – “Radio Discussion” - very poor quality
Dr.Charles Malik, President of the United Nations General Assembly from 1958 to 1959, speaks on Gorbachev and Reagan peace talks to someone, possibly journalist Jack Webster, on a radio station. He also discusses nuclear war. There are two different audio streams recorded one on top of the other, making this recording almost impossible to decipher. At [10:45] there is some discussion of Canadian politics. Don Johnson, Liberal MP joins the discussion. They respond to some phone calls. There is some discussion of prison riots with Roger Caron. The recording cuts off in the middle of a sentence. This recording is possibly from “The Coast” radio station, 97.1 CKAY.
