Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 15, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Mission Effort Is in Turmoil Churches iThe Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., June 15, 1974 IChurch Briefs Hy David K. Anderson UPI R.l.jion wriler KcnK-mbcr Die missionaries'' They used to appear, while on home leave, at Sunday eve- ning church basement sup- pers with slides, stories aiid Artifacts spears, shields, sometimes even a shrunken head to detail their often little-noted and always ill-re- warded efforts to bring the Christian Gospel to world's unchurched. Many of those missionaries were successful and out of that success the mission ef- historically one of American and E u rope a n churches sending missionaries to Africa, Asia and Latin America has been thrown into turmoil. Growth The turmoil is occasioned in part by the growth of the churches in the mission fields to tlie point where they no longer feel the need for mis- sionaries and in part by a changing social and political consciousness of third world countries and their churches which understand mission to be as much social as personal conversion to Christ. As long ago as 1971, for ex- ample, Dr. John Galu, gen- eral secretary of the Presby- terian Church of East Africa, suggested a five-year mora- torium on sending missionar- ies. The moratorium would withdraw all mission efforts and allow both sending and receiving churches to rethink and reformulate the basis for future No Middle Ciround At a recent seminar at the Ministries center. Ventnor, iN.J., which brought together representa- tives of Homan Catholic mis- sion agencies, mainstream J'rotestant denominational mission boards and conserva- tive evangelicals, third world spokesmen were unanimous in insisting that there could he no middle ground on the mor- atorium issue. Musembe Kasiera of the Kenya Pentecostal Assemblie, summed up the feeling o. third world sentiment, scoring Americans "who talk abou their own cultural paganisn and civil religion yet do noth ing about it while insisting that third world churches new help to Heal with these issues in their own countries." New Council The split the turmoil has caused is most readily seer in the United Methodis Church where a group unhap- py with the denomination's board of global industries has formed the "evangelical mis sions council" to challenge board policies and actions. At the spring meeting of the Global Ministries agency, rep resentatives of the EMC dial- lenged what it said was tht lopsided social action empha sis to the virtual exclusion ol evangelism. The Hev. David Seamands, Wilmorc, Ky., chairman of the F.MC, told the 'board tliat his group was ''for the great so- i-iorxiliJi'-.-il n n- cenis of the board of global imui.slries." liut he added that his group felt "the board is losing its primary purpose (or existence to proclaim the Gospel by ivmri Christ as IIKHI'S only Savior and with the express aim being conversion." urth World' for development Oi o i a fouj in world of tin- whore tut- Gospi-l of Jesus Christ has not been proclaimed to reach the two billion peo- ple unreached. untouched by the Gospel." 1-..VU by Tinted .1 liishop K. 0.
