Christian Fellowship at the BSU

Winter, 1960

The old BSU House on Techwood Drive was a welcome gathering place after classes at Georgia Tech. Far from being formal, this gathering of Tech guys at the Baptist Student Union was more likely to break out into a full-fledged wrestling match. Involved in this one are Butch Henderson, Norman Petty, Clayton Teague, Sam Shelton, and Henry Fields. From the fellowship which grew out of free-for-alls and craziness sometimes grew meaningful Bible studies and discussions which impacted the way we lived.

This is an evening gathering of Georgia Tech students for a Bible Study. The taking of this picture was apparently delaying things, since the clock on the wall says 6:43 and our standard starting time was 6:41 . The community which grew at this time has lasted beyond the bounds of the next century. It was a remarkable privilege to be a part of such a close fellowship. Learning in practical terms to live out "love your neighbor as yourself", many of us cemented our intent to live out our lives as followers of Christ.
