Our Ordained Chaplains scripture verse for today is Luke 6:31 which reads, “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from Bruce Hurt. He said, “Goodness finds its fullest and highest expression in that which is willingly and sacrificially done for others.”

In this podcast, we will continue discussing the book “Out of the Depths” by Anton T. Boisen. We continue today with “Undergraduate Days” (Part 1):

The memories of my undergraduate days in college are even more painful to me than those of the high school period. It was a time of unrest, of social maladjustment, and of failure to achieve any particular distinction.

During my high school period I had never felt sure of my status among other boys. This sense of insecurity was now greatly intensified by the fact that I received no invitation to join the fraternity to which my best friends belonged. To be sure, I was “spiked” by two good fraternities, and one of these I actually joined, but I took part only halfheartedly. I attended some of the dances and made a few feeble attempts to learn the art of dancing, but I was still ill at ease with girls. At least, I had no success in establishing friendly relations with the girls who were attractive to me.
