longtime friend of Messina Berry has been called an education communication he's a retired taken with the strength and communication idea and joined ACM listed in 1954 and has been active for decades and his country very rare Asya as a comparative protection and currently teachers and we might leave a few minutes other common month-end of potential to be saved your Holy Spirit so we may so live the holy gospel of our Lord Jesus that we made the agents and messengers of justice peace truth jewelry love in whatever ways we can be to human touch in these two days give us about the inspiration and practical ideas for our mission guide us to focus on nervously a fellowship in this coming year and the especially leadership team 20 copies yes I was asked to speak I don't know maybe I mean it's taken over Mexico somewhere and it gives you a play one of the SDM in that theory the background into the SDM is that the Christian religion was divided into tribes were too many tribes the Catholic and Protestant and then there were some tribes among here prophecies and they generally require separate quite often another excellent and this was the religious picture in the nineteenth century and at the end of the nineteenth century a special man called John most American who'd been instrumental in the foundation that we were seeing what I am seeing decided which an ecumenical organization for youth which was founded on the exact date but in 1995 at a conference in Sweden which some sort of a missionary conference but the more stupid mr. Federation was founded under his leadership that he was the major leader in the world in 1952 so I when I was asked to do this I told cabarrus work to analogy other landmarks and it serves a longer project than I thought when I started this but very very interesting moment sources were is the two histories of this one is the ACM biomatter to actually still volunteer Hispanics period existence extent 43 mission release or volunteers mostly to India and that was a highlight of cholera the septicemia among me so very very courageous and sacrificial group and so that and you know secret of highlighted missionaries of volunteers so at various places I will I've highlighted if you like the spirit of what became a student Christian movement what its emphasis was so in August 1985 in Sweden the wolf's tooth Federation was founded in 1996 the Australian student Christian Union was born being at a meeting in Melbourne John Mott had organized this he was appointed general secretary and so Christian unions were established at the end of the 19th century after Melvin then came a delay and it was very active in schools and in a couple of us have mentioned our association with the SDM schools in our introduction the first traveling secretary Terminix secretary was appointed fred fred plant and so on so it was founded because of the as because an offshoot in a way of the student volunteer movement the main emphasis in those very early days was on volunteering and being a missionary you must remember that this with Australia is part of the Western world and that was the whole of Africa and Asia which was regarded as a mission field what Christian European type people were going to China so doing wonderful work and as I say I going to remote areas and not necessarily surviving very long and it was interesting that initially it was separated this year support base SC Hugh what then was segregation on sex lines so that there would be ladies for three learn women's groups and men's groups but the in Sydney when it was founded the actually possible segregated but this segregation did work very long the first traveling secretary was mythical and he was in that role in the period up until about nineteen the one where heroes of the stood Christy Lewis booth browsers she was originally from from Britain but she is highly influential she came to Australia as part of dominating the dominant figure and so she was around for quite a few years a major in 1899 consent was League world student missionary conference in Edinburgh and this was really the start of the bottom in Kaluga so we have if we like a missionary and poverty of Rod Laver segregated then they becoming unstable gating then having an increasingly ecumenical flame so these were the soccer flavors or emphases of this this developing group the first was an important conference to pretend and the point of the first a full-time missionary secretary so the number of the students were encouraged to become missionaries and that was external mission base to place mostly Africa and also Asia India and China were common destinations well in 1910 we knew basically a bishop of canterbury came and he introduced the social gospel movement it was the finest in spectacle published and it was it was interesting he was estimated that the Pope was interested fascinated by the you know the developing labor movement he was very concerned about low wages and difficult conditions for working people and this was being picked up by by winning temple various the destruction of gospel movie so workers educational association for branches in Sydney and Melbourne and so on that they were linked to the ASC you remember it wasn't me Luke was at that stage because for you it only was made about 30 the head office was moved to Melbourne from Sydney and so on a regional structure was set up in 1913 so there were travelling secretaries there were there was a staff of about 8 I became boy the money came from from churches and so it was quite a large and established organization the waa brother I country from the west and was founded by two members Stanley Anderson and Percy wise well another hero of the SDA was myoclonus in 1950 as she was only 28 I think she joined the four staff when she stayed on the difficulties between during the depression number invite the new member is anyone here it's okay one composting matter it's actually a special person mother's name so various people came and went and so on so that we turn to page its number page 3 the major emphasis of course the Bible and Bible study has remember that the there was a strong evangelical flavor for the excuse Christian Union so Bible study and so long had been replaced by about only 23 say the date of the paramedic conference because the Bible study plus ethics practical Christianity and the teachings of the human Jesus then the 1930 there was an unfortunately split a gentleman called Howard Guinness who had been students of language and very strong the evangelistic spirit and the evangelical spiritus website and he split the SDM in England and stuff the Christian Union he came to Australia in 19th Murphy and he made the split to but between the SEM which was less particularly interested in expression or from what was both a evangelical Christian has remained in 1931 another hero they assumed grossly McCutcheon was appointed for the traveling secretary there was a spot influence of pessimism reading through this the only 35 and there was a strong words from the clients were any Quakers here yes so there we are and the they will remain the clues that I have mentioned the first of course but in 1937 936 thusly Spanish Civil War broke out and the this was quite stressful particularly for the Catholic Newman society the mention that the various churches organize their own youth organizations and he kept typically refer to us via was the human society and its leader was be a Santa Maria those of you who are interested in Australian politics we're profitable but for 1990s I guess so it was war was brewing and so the the would bite Savannah just equated to my pacifist I said they had a strong influence others realized that or felt that there would be occasions when fighting imbalance metal perhaps occur and how could that be managed in the Christian sort of life so the that were seeking lived and just a justification for war adjustable in after the war in 1946 at the Michigan conference there was a huge problem with refugees all around the world a lot growing up by the turn of the Second World War so issues were poverty injustice and refugees so you can see how the organization has had lots of flavors and most fashions of the way 19:48 cohort was brewing and so the emphasis there was on a tee racism refugee advocacy and the debating the 1913 device to each from each according to his ability his or her ability to each according to these or only and that people's relationship to Jesus so anyway the immediate post-war period like a practical level refugee problem was very important and the bytes about anti racism himself through the Communists and through the Quakers these initiate was increasingly to critically to the device evolved into politics and then it became increasingly interested in theological fire emergency shutdown and so on it's near by the way a special press in published books and papers and cause the Australian to collegians published circulation and we're dealing with in the next scene which was a la which was large national conferences have various SCMS it's not just Douglas bukkake that is protecting George you say he was towards your father or something yes Harry did he really yes I'm a fox with the liberal theological discussion yes okay there was an increasing interact with Catholic universities society only reviewed under way for instance the SEM we had very friendly relations with human society there I used to go to something the human society of instant 1:58 on there was a proliferation of denominational societies and that weakened the ACM finances and membership the moving on in 1960s I a flavor was an interesting liberation theology things were brewing in the student world starting particularly with the the external political and social situation tended to overwhelm the religious and Theological emphasis of the student Christian movement the 1961 Michigan conference on nation introduction there was a an emphasis on anti racism the nuclear disarmament and student Action Center but lost Cyril and that split the executive back to you the adlai competence in 1964 was the last of the conference's the bomb on the traditional model in ever-smaller attendance of the traditional intellectual approach of the SEM was now a terminal for a vast number of students of younger students when you think about the nineteen sixties there was a sexual stand for sexual revolution in the United States Britain's experimental drugs and so on feminism all of that turned the student world upside down and inside out and you find several so if we take 1964 this the the SEM was was captivated by non religious issues and social interpretations and secular it's a person's philosophy in 96 divided to help anti-racism and Aboriginal land rights turns page by soaked by about 1966 students when they were participating at branch of the national level the Vietnam War was increasing the olive oil anti-war activism and women's liberation the counterculture and rejection of bourgeois morality extremely politicization of the movement 1968 1968 represents sort of chasm and the almost died the 60s and he is appointed to rescue the SEM oh I couldn't swing this thing but you're appointed general secretary so 1970 and tomorrow 65 is that right yes okay so that was good that we had the National Office in 1969 that yes yes thank you for that and that was the to Michigan Mr Pascoe I may die for instance 1972 I for the first SEM in a technical point in Western Australia was called the God Squad which is the last top nine for and Chris major who was conspicuous in the sinews nighties she joined the the general counsel and she was a conference the world there were a few conferences but they weren't necessarily here in 1981 the issue of homosexuality what's that was an increasing interest in the calculation and so on issue who was at the conference in 1992 quickest way to end and the the theme there was racism to Christianity and justice the last page a legal technical college and there originally which are people's the so the clear shorts women although she needed the DubLi grapevine as the interpolation would become very high-quality groaning probe was supported national chair in 2004 Anabelle country felt like the only for about six months timbers every step of the new terminal office was to that night 2009 in 2011 was a crisis because they so she made some of you know mr. national chair and she's in Brisbane and she unfortunately was the history a century of influence was published so naturally coordinator the communications and the magazine money we have we navigated small rates and money to the individual states among their branches I haven't mentioned that in 1996 there was
