By VIKI STONE Not long ago it was only the clergy and people others called "religious fanatics" who talked much about God or the coming of Jesus Christ. Today it is seen and heard everywhere. "Smile, God Loves You," says the bumper sticker on the car ahead. "I'm High on Jesus," a teenager's T-shirt might proclaim. Why the change? "It's just the supernatural power of God," is all the explanation offered by Rev. David A. Seamands. Seamands, a minister from Wilmore, Ky., spoke in Hutchinson this week to laymen and ministers who are preparing for the Crusade for Christ with Bill Glass, scheduled for Nov. 28-Dec. 5th here. It was in Rev. Seamands* hometown of Wilmore that the increasingly - popular "Jesus Movement" got, perhaps, its first firm base. "Oh, there have been sporadic outbreaks of revivalism on the west coast since 1958," he says, "but it wasn't until Feb. 3, 1970, in Wilmore at Asbury College that it took hold and soon began to spread to the rest of the country. Rev. Seamands told of the things that happened that day to spark what is now called the "Asbury Revival:" 'Something Real' It was just another Tuesday morning chapel service at the small interdenominational c o 1- lege. The officiate asked as usual at the close of the service if anyone had anything to say. A senior youth who was about to complete his last quarter at the college walked to the front of the building and began to speak into the microphone. "I've been here four years, but I've blown it. . . . I've sought something but I never have found it," was, in essence, what he said. He closed by kneeling in prayer. Other students in the congregation were touched and found their way to the microphone to admit that they too felt the same way. Soon there were tears and confessions. Some told of how they had tried drugs and a number of things to satisfy their desires for something real. By evening 1500 to 2,000 students had crowded into t h e chapel. They were praying, singing and giving testimonials of how they "finally found Christ tonight." Only between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. did the crowd drop to less than 400 persons. 'Love - In' The newspapers reported it as a "love-in". The people in the predominantly Methodist town of some 3500 persons assumed that the students were just trying to find a way to get out of classes. But by the time 24 hours had passed and the "love-in" was still going strong, the people were beginning to take the students more seriously. Things continued this way until Friday. That weekend some 700 Asbury students left the college in teams. They were going out to neighboring cities to share what they had found at Asbury. "And, Zap! The same thing that happened at Asbury would happen wherever they went," Rev. Seamands says. While the students were away witnessing for the weekend something took hold of the townspeople. Many were drawn to the chapel and began to experience the same things the students had. People were coming from outside the state to find out what was happening at Asbury. "Adults began confessing resentments and grudges they'd had against each other for years. . .some broke down and openly asked for forgiveness," Rev. Seamands recalls. Miracles Joy was prominent in all of the gatherings, he said, noting also that some claimed they had received miraculous healings and endowment with the gift of speaking in unknown tongues. While all this was happening college's two top officials were out of the country. Upon returning, the president, Dr. Denni3 Kinlaw remarked, "God walked into our campus and has been here ever since." The "love-in" ended Sunday. "But the town hasn't been the same ever since," he insists. Church attendance is much better than it was—students arc still going out every weekend to witness—there's just a spirit of love." Rev. Seamands told of several merchants whose customers paid off old debts and of one teenager who borrowed money from a bank to repay merchants in whose stores he had shoplifted. "One kid handed me $10 and told me he had stolen it from an offering plate at my church one Sunday," said Rev. Seamands, who pastors the United Methodist Church in Wilmore. "It was just the supernatural power of God," Rev. Seamands said again. "The Holy Spirit just took control."
