LETTER TO A FRIEND, slightly "adapted"


my mail was a bit "quickly done". So, as usual, I forgot a few points.

I think very often about my years at the Cévenol. I have done so many different jobs there! I was there as a student and got my Bacclauréat, as an educator, as a teacher in summer and finally as a camper. I spent 8 years there. So I can pretend to know its history, its structures (or what they should be), and somehow I'm part of it. It's not that I would be in love with the Cévenol, but I feel a deep respect for what has been done and reached in the first 50 years of its existence. And, when I take a look at the world, I say to myself that places like that are badly needed.

By chance or because they were able to listen to the poetry of the world (we'll never know!), Trocmé and Théis have chosen a fortunate place, full of magic and that specific feeling of being for a short moment out of time and a little bit nearer to God. And I'm serious with that! I could write an essay about so many moments of grace and fortune while working...

So it wouldn't fit if I said that I'm just sad to see the place in such a bad state. I'm shocked. The answer to that problem is not only money. The right persons, persons who are able to continue in an adequate modern way what was started in the late 1930ies must be missing.

I wonder if the group in charge right now is in love with a strange and very personal taste of power. They maybe love to surround themselves with the prestige of former years and maybe are, as a consequence, blind for what has really to be done? That would be easy to explain. Then they need help.
Power! Who would care about a director of a small boarding school somewhere in France!? But I wonder...

From my own experience I can tell that it's dangerous to grow up in the Cévenol and to stay there. In such a situation it's just impossible not to be tempted by that "now it's my turn"-atmosphere. One cannot succeed if he has not learned or tested their skills somewhere in the rest of the world.

In my job, I'm grateful for what I have learned over there. I would not have survived in my profession without it. Here around nobody knows where I learned my professional abilities, because I just can't explain it. Of course there are my african years, my years on university, my german years of hard work and modernisation. But my convictions are from the Cévenol, it's a unique and authentic place. Germany is a machine: it works, but it doesn't live. That's, of course a simplified point of view.

Three or four weeks ago we commemorated its 65th birthday. It was all organized by the alumnae. They contacted everybody, they invited, they paid for the bands who came to play. The school itself did not much to help, or nothing. Some members of the staff helped a lot in their free time. We took care of picking up every little waste, so that no one could make the reproach of misusing the Cévenol. A group of students helped and played/sang in one of the bands, too. So the generations did get in touch.
When everybody saw that the commemoration was a success, members of the board and the headmaster appeared sometimes to say hello during the three days. But they did not welcome us in some "official" way. And the president of the board did not even introduce herself in the beginning of the "culte" at salle F. Lods.

I saw that the spirit was scratched and damaged, but it's not broken. So I still hope. But the financial situation can only be a desaster.

I have tried to analyse the situation from here. I know nothing about the Cévenols bank-account. But I guess that it still has to pay back the new housings, and that aprx. 70-75 boarding students can of course not enough to have a solid basis. Many houses seem to have been sold already. Those that remain just look bad: I guess that the Cévenol has just the money to care for security, but nor for the rest. So some corners of the campus look like a slum (just have a look at Modzanga and its phone booth!), buildings look dirty, it rains in the sport hall.

But I analysed the general project. It's talking, referring to the past, claiming intentions without saying how they want to reach their goals. Theoreticals are mixed up with working methods, history and educational goals. There is no structured thinking about how to give a modern shape to the protestant philosophy. No thinking about what new ways could be taken to respond to the needs of today's world in a Cévenol's way. I saw young guys who could be students walking qietly towards the village around midnight and not caring of being seen. And I asked myself what today's Collège Cévenol stands really for.

So, to quieten myself, I write down how we would respond to such a situation in "my" place in Germany. It helps me, it will not help the Cévenol.

OK, that's not what I wanted to write about, but it's said now. I just wanted to tell you that I do think very often about you all and that I remind you as exeptionally warm-hearted persons who were able to share what we had there. You were right, there was magic, too. But there was someting of value: different poeple from different nations succeeded in building those important bridges once more. And that's a goal I'm still eager to work for.

Greetings and hugs!

Au collège de 1963 à 1969....3 directeurs Theis, Leenhardt et Gagnier...des "affaires" sombres de rivalités et tensions entre prof. traversées allégrement...6 belles années dont je rêve encore...on ne s'en remets pas d'un passage là bas...ça reste gravé...

From on 2004-05-13 15:59:41:

J'ai apprécié le Collège (et je l'apprécie toujours...) pour les mêmes raisons que tout le monde. C'est un lieu plutôt extraordinaire avec un potentiel qui ne l'est pas moins. J'y étais en tant qu'élève, pion, prof de cours de vac, campeur en chef de qqs camps de travail. Dans mon travail actuel de pédagogue je me "nourris" toujours des lecons apprises là-bas.

Mais je me demande ce qui se passe actuellement parcontre?! Un projet d'établissement dont je lis depuis des années des qu'il verra bientôt le jour, la plupart des internats fermés, un gymnase inpracticable par temps de pluie, une centaine de membres seulement à l'AUCC. Pour une entreprise autre, ce serait l'asphyxie financière irrécupérable. Et je me demande pourquoi l'Actuel directeur parle dans sa dernière lettre du 65ème anniversaire comme d'une "échéance qui approche".

Le vécu, l'histoire et l'âme de ce lieu me passionnent. Mais son avenir et la bilan actuel le font également. Nous, le monde et nos sociétés ont besoin de Cévenols qui vivent.

I just recently re-discovered my diary from my years at le college (1967-1969)and I read it again last night. Then I found this great website today and I am having so much fun reading it. I lived in Milflor and then with M/M Bernard & Yvette Galland & their children Mariane, Veronique, Christophe & Founette for my last year (1969). I would love to hear from anyone that was there during those years - especially those who knew me! Take care & peace! Kim SCHUTTE Holbrook

J'aimerais avoir des nouvelles de copains de cet époque là, si lointaine. Je remercie aux amis Americains d'avoir crée ce magnifique guestbook.

Hi! I was a student at the summer school language course in the summer of 1968. I had a wonderful time and met great people. I also developed by great strides in my French language skills and personal confidence. I remember spending alot of time singing Beatles songs on our various hikes and adventures. By the way my name back then was Peggy Jensen, I still go by Peg. I am a physician, Family Practice, and married to a Presbyterian pastor, who I met during a year abroad study in Japan. We have a 17 y/o daughter who is a total Beatles fan. My how things come around again! Once again we are praying hard for peace amid much tension and danger in the world. May we all work and pray together that peace based on justice, opportunity, mercy and compassion for all may prevail. I am grateful to College Cevenol for the contribution it has made to cross-cutural and international friendships and understanding.

I was a student in the 63-4 annee scolaire and am now President of the American Friends of the College Cevenol. I am very happy to see alums of the school year, summer school and work camp are eager to stay in touch with one another... We send out newsletters about our own Board meetings, visits to the College and its board meetings... We seek people who want to be involved with the College -- as donors to its scholarship programs and as donors to its program of debt payoff. The AFCC itself exists due to generous volunteer energy and we would like to know if there are those who would be interested in attending our board meetings in NY (first Friday in Nov.) or DC (April 20th this year). It is quite exhilarating to meet fellow College enthusiasts from the years 1947-2002 at our meetings and compare stories! Tito Craige

J'etais au college les annees 85-91 et j'aimerais avoir des nouvelles de tout le monde!
This site looks great and is much more interactive than the official CC site. Have been swamped with work but promise to participate virtually in the AFCC in 2002. Sorry Anne!

In 1970 and 71 My family lived at l"Accueil Fraternal" where my parents studied french before moving on to Congo as Prebyterian missionaries. My brother and I were "day" students at the college and the experience is forever in our hearts and memories. I would love to hear from some of the students from that era.

Thanks for the website. I was a student at the College in 1965-66, a moniteur in 1969.

I'll check back for news at the website and would appreciate information on whatever alumni listing or group exists.

Many thanks,

Typo goof! I KNOW better: par-dessus le toit... Doug

As I said above, the first time I wrote something, it was shut down. During the second writing, I completely forgot to mention that, during the Cours de Langues '52, I was very much touched by Rev. and Mrs. Theis and their accounts of the work they did to help save the Jews in World War II. In addition, their daughter Jeanne, in our French class, taught me my first French poem, and one of my favorite ones, Verlaine's "En Prison" : "Le ciel est, par-dessis le toit, si bleu, si calme..." I could go on and on, but I had to add these comments to my previous ones. Thanks, C. C., for everything! Doug

This is my second try! (Something shut me down on my last word last time!)
I am an alumnus of the 1952 Cours de Langues and was also the "moniteur américain" for the Cours de Langues in 1958. (My sister and brother-in-law met at the Cours de Langues in 1956, and were married five year later.) I was in Europe this past month and one of the people I visited was Philip ("Phloep") Kohnstamm, also an alumnus of the 1952 Cours de Langues. I would like to re-establish 49- and 43-year-old ties with any other alums of the '52 and/or the '58 Cours de Langues, particularly Adrien Barbey, Grad de Graff, Jan Spoor, and the Bodenhorsts (brother and sister) from the '52 Cours de Langues. I would appreciate it if you could send me any names and addresses from those two groups. This past month, I had so much fun visiting and showing my wife so many of the places I learned about in the trips with Monsieur and Madame Couderc at the end of the Cours de Langues : The 45th Parallel at St. Agrève, Mt. Jerbier de Jonc (and the source of the Loire River), the Partage des Eaux (Continental Divide), Mt. Ventoux, Orange (and the magnificent performace of Arthur Honniger's "Le Roi David" in the Roman Amphitheatre there), Nîmes, Arles, Les Baux, St. Rémy and Roman Glanum and Van Gogh's room there, etc., etc., etc. I am deeply indebted to the Collège Cévenol for all I got from it (including a FANTASTIC brother-in-law!). As a retired French teacher, I now realize how much I was able to use what I learned at C.C. in my 40-year teaching career. Je compte les bienfaits de Dieu (et du Collège Cévenol) et je vois, combien en le nombre est grand, to paraphrase the grace we used to sing at each meal. Thanks for reading all this, and for sending me anything you may have to answer my request. Doug Halsted (P.S.: When at the collège, I was P. Douglas Halsted, but I had my first name legally changed shortly thereafter, to honor my grandfather and my father.)

I attended College Cevenol in the mid sixties and am sure that your treasurer James Marra was there at the same time. If so I would love to hear from him.

By the way it was great seeing photographs of the school.

Nice Site. Shame the "official" site hasn't been updated for over a year (!)
Would have loved to come for the Pentecote weekend, but didn't know about it. How can I get on some kind of email/mail list? I was au college, from January 1984 to June 1986. I do have lots of questions I couldn't find the answers to on your site (but I am a bit mentally challenged so maybe just didn't find them!) like who is director today? Are some of my prof still there? (I have noticed Mr Lassey's name, so he must be. He was our Philo teacher) And les pions? I think some of them from my time (the time of the greeks, of course) are still there (!) won't comment on this!) And so many more questions unanswered... Please reply to me.

Thanks a lot.
