Biola Broadcaster - 1953-04

APRIL, 1953

VOL. 1, NO. 4


Taking the Bible Institute Hour microphones to Wil– mington, California, here you see the famous poetess Mrs. Martha Snell Nicholson who lives at 1406 Lagoon Ave. While she has been afflicted with arthritis for some years and recently with heart ailment and Parkin– son's Disease, Mrs. Nicholson has still bravely carried on and witnessed .to many thousands through her chal– lenging verses. She is the author of such books of verse as Wings and Sky, Threshold of Heaven, In Heaven's Gardens, Ivory Palaces, The Glory Forever, Heart Held High, and Family of God. Mr. Al Sanders, Radio Di– rector, interviewed her recently and secured permission to print in "Nuggets of Gold," a poem which is a con– tinued source of rich inspiration upon the loss of a loved one. Mrs. Nicholson's life radiates Christ even on a bed of pain, and her immortal work stands as a monument to the One of whom each of her verses speaks. .•........•...........................................

He walks and stops and stares, and walks and stare' again. Vistas of loveliness beyond the dreams of men. He who was feeble, weak, and shackled to a bed, Now climbs eternal hills with light and easy tread. He has escaped at last the cruel clutch of pain; His lips shall never taste her bitter cup again. 0 never call him dead, This buoyant one and free, Whose daily portion is delight and ecstasy! He bows in speechless joy before the feet of Him Whom, seeing not, he loved while yet his sight was dim. Along the golden streets No stranger walks today, But one who, long homesick, is home at last, to stay! -Martha Snell Nicholson * * * Daniel chose rather to spend a NIGHT in a lions' den, thon go through the DAY without prayer. Repentance-A change of mind. New mind about God. Conversion-A change of life. New life for God. Regeneration-A change of nature. New heart for God. Justification- A change of state. New standing for God. Adoption-A change of family. New relationship to- ward God. Glorification-A change of service. Separation unto God. Sanctification-A change of place. New condition with God. Dally prayers lessen dally cares! ~ From the President's Desk ••• "Why should a Christion have a college education"? some– one asked me the other doy. "Why not just keep on with the same type of class work as before, it was good enough 45 years ago?" I

Perhaps you yourself have often wondered this and I'm always glad to tell folk why Biola now offers the Biola Bible College training. Actually, all you need ta do is ask a missionary society how difficult it is to send out ambassadors in these hard days. All you need to do is go to the field and see there what an increasingly difficult time

those missionaries without degrees are having, to continue ef– fectively in many areas. All you need to do is to try to place yourself as a Christian young person in the ranks of the other youth of our day, for then your eyes would be opened to on amazing discovery. What we want of our young people Is ta so equip them with the Word of God that they may go out academically as well as spiritually and point the way to the Lamb of God that taketh oway the sin of the world. Yes, this is an ever changing world in which we live, and while the spiritual emphasis of BIOLA has been maintained even higher than before, so the academic training is second to none in the country. For this abundant •measure, we thank you and continually praise God.

Singing their way through four Western states and Canada, the Bible Institute has been proud to send out to the glory of the Lord, the Ambassadors Quartet whom you see pictured above. They have presented programs in churches, camps, youth rallies, schools, and homes using in addition to quartet numbers vocal and instrumental solos, duets, testimonies and messages. From right to left: Owen Widman, bass, is leader of the group and hails from Ferndale, Washington. He's interested in Gospel broadcasting and has a good talent for the work since he has announced for the programs. Lowell Brown, the baritone, comes from Paradise, California, and this sum– mer plans to work as an assistant pastor. Phoenix, Arizona, is hometown to Tom Deal, second tenor, whom you hear quite often as soloist on the broadcasts. He is looking to the field of Christian education in service for the Lord. First tenor Dick Shook comes from Turlock, California. And besides singing in the quartet, Dick is an accomplished cornetist. So you see, here at BIOLA, whether their home is Washington, Arizona, or California, young people can get together as Ambassadors for Christ and musical tes– timony is the natural result. 1953 Biola Missionary Conference With the theme of "Reap the Harvest" the 24th annual BIOLA Conference opens Sunday, April 12th concluding Sunday, April 19th. Missionaries from al– most every country of the world will be represented with decorative display booths at the Church of the Open Door set up by mission organizations. For a free descriptive folder on this most unusual conference, write the Broadcaster. We'd be happy to see that you get a free copy. Story of an Envelope Enclosed with this Broadcaster is the special postage– paid envelope we told you about on the radio. We sincerely believe the new KING'S BUSINESS is today's best buy in Christian magazines. More pictures, more helps, more monthly features. And, during this special offer it's all yours for six months for just a single dollar bill. If you act this week you'll be in time for the big April issue containing the Merv Rosell story in pictures - his campaigns and his family. Then there's a picture story on Dick Hillis's work in For– mosa, an exclusive message from Madame Chiang and articles by Dr. Talbot and Dr. Sutherland. Plus, of course, all the monthly columns and teaching aids.
