Document: F.H. Von Meyenfeldt, Meaning of Ethos (n.d.).

Excerpt: The Board of Trustees of the Association for the Advancement of Christian Scholarship has invited me to deliver a series of lectures in the field of ethics at your annual study conference. With pleasure I accepted this invitation because I considered it a great honour to be invited from across the ocean to speak to your conference But at the same time I was a little scared. For who am I that I should cross the Atlantic to teach you ethics? The more so because I do not believe in any European superiority, and certainly not in any ethical superiority. On second thought, however, I understood that I had put things in the wrong way. For I was not invited as an European to come to you Americans. But we are expected to meet one another as Christians whose commonwealth is in heaven. (Phil. 3:20).
