Here, courtesy of Douglas Yeo, is a recording of Corrie ten Boom’s chapel message at Wheaton College on November 12, 1974. When she left the podium, the assembled students burst into raucous applause.
Corrie, who had asked that students not do this at the end of her message, raced back to the podium, held up her hand, and wagged her finger at the crowd. When everyone quieted down, Corrie said, “Don’t applaud for Corrie ten Boom. Think of Jesus.”
In an article, Yeo states, “Our days of clapping in chapel were over. And our lives were changed.”
