Title: Dave Enarson – “The Dream of TWU” / Baruch Goldstein – “Jews for Jesus” / Ken Davis – “The AUCC”
Enarson is interviewed (possibly by Human Resources Director Bill Norris?) about his role in the creation of Trinity Western University. This interview also includes some of Enarson’s personal history. He recounts his experiences on the planning committee, including references to Henry Friesen, who was convinced that the Seal Kap property was the place for Trinity. His wife, Eileen, also makes some comments about her personal life and involvement at Trinity Western University. At [18:52] this section cuts out suddenly and a representative of Jews for Jesus, Baruch Goldstein, can be heard addressing a chapel service. He mentions that this is his second visit to the Trinity campus. He argues that the difficulties Jews have with the Good News are not theological, but cultural. He then relates several amusing anecdotes about Jewish culture and his faith. He ends by pronouncing a benediction, first in Hebrew, then in English. At [37:30] this section ends and another chapel service, already in progress, begins, with Dr. Ken Davis discussing his involvement with the AUCC. He discusses bringing Howard Petch of the University of Victoria to campus and convincing Petch to support TWU’s acceptance into the AUCC. He leads the group in prayer.
