   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                Mormons "Adopt" The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., July 6, 1974 Church Briefs H> I.idia Wasowirz POINT OF T11K .MOUN- TAIN', Lluli (Ul'l, once a inontli, 37 .Mormon couples pack their hymn hoiks, r-hurrb literature and kids into their cars nnd lieail tor t'tah state prison. After the half-hour drive, family members file onc-hy- onc into a narrow room with pale white walls where 37 convicts await them. Each prisoner gets together with his "adopted family" and tells them about the past month's events, his personal problems and and his hopes for a successful fu- ture outside the gray, confin- ing walls. Laughter All conversations must wait, however, until after an open- ing hymn is sung and prayer offered. Then the silence turns into comfortable laughter, words of encouragement, and warm but sound advice. The prisoners play with the children during the visits one .Monday a month and keep in touch with their "family" through pnone calls and let- ters. The Family Home livening program at the state prison, by the Church of Jesus Chris! of latter-Day Saints, lias proved uniquely a: a rehabilitation program during six years of operation. "1 didn't want to get in- volved at .said Don Har- ris, 28, who is serving five vears to life for armed rob- bery. "1 thought it was kids' slulf. Then one man said, 'Come on and give it a try.' So I finally did, and I wound up having the district altor- lornt-y being the head of my family. But I'm sure glad 1 joined Helped "1 don't know what I would do without Harris add- ed. "They've helped me see where I've gone wrong. They've also helped me to get trust back into people. "And when I get out, I'll have someone who cares, and I think I'll make it." Harris was adopted by ihe Bennett Peterson family of Bountiful, Utah. Peterson is Davis county attorney. "The first time we were go- ing to the prison, I was rather apprehensive, especially about bringing rny Mrs. Peterson said. "But as soon as we met Don we fell in love with him and wanted to lielp him. .Now, he's one of us. V.'l.ca my couldn't come out to prison one night, ihe cried." Other prisoners and their "families" told similar stories. Percentage Where tiut rnaity iu M cenl of Utah state prison in- mates later return to jail, only 14 or 14.8 percent of inmates who participated in the Mormon church program and were released from prison have since returned to their cells. "There is no doubt in my mind the program has helped some Warden Samuel Smith said. "1 know of one man iwho was back in prison for the third time when he got on the program. My prognosis for him was that he wouldn't last six months the next time he got out, but he's lasted three years." The program's success lias attracted the interest of 18 other prisons in 11 states, which have started or arc planning to begin similar pro- jects.

Anderson UPI Religion Writer The prestigious Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, in a report earlier this year on bureaucratic bunglings of national land international governmental agencies in re- sponding to the West African drouth, suggested that pri- vate, voluntary agencies might play a more positive role than in disaster relief. More recently, Robert S. McNamara, World Bank pres- ident stressing that he was speaking as "a Presbyterian elder" urged increased in- volvement by the church in development matters. John L. Peters, a Methodist clergyman and president of World Neighbors, is not un- duly optimistic about either the government or the church in terms of its involvement in development. Model World Neighbors, however, is a model that both church and government might look at in considering what is called variously foreign 'aid or third world development. Peters formed World Neigh- bors in 1952 after preaching a sermon in which tie asked, "How do you get together with people so (that it makes a significant difference in their lives to go as a broth- er's brother and not as a brother's "And to my he added, "the (phones began Evangelical Meeting Set for Switzerland to ring and people were say- ing, 'Let's World Neighbors is not a relief agency a function that many church groups per- form superlatively but a development effort. It might be compared to the difference between putting a Band-aid on a wound (relief) and treat- ment for the cause of a dis- ease Dignity For Peters, the key element in World Neighbors' develop- ment effort is dignity. "The main thrust is to help people keep their dignity. I would say that dignity is a key ingredient of love. With- out dignity, there is no real love." World Neighbors, with a budget of million tiny by most development stand- ards is active in 21 coun- tries with about 120 different projects. Its main areas of concern are agriculture and food production, family plan- By George W. Cornell AP Religion Writer NEW.YORK (AP) Con- trary to previous expectations, representatives of the Vatican and of the World Council of Churches are being invited to a big Protestant evangelical meeting in Switzerland next month. But they 'won't be able to speak in the idiscussions, or take part in any votes. Word of their inclusion was received here from offices of the International Congress on Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland. Courtesy Anglican Bishop A.

They are to include about 25 representatives of various church organizations, he said. Among them are representa- tives of the Vatican Secretari- at for Christian Unity and the W o r 1 d Council, embracing most major Protestant and Orthodox churches. The congress, scheduled July 16-25, is to be a globally expanded version of a similar gathering held in Berlin in 1966, made up mostly of Amer- icans.

"Our question lias always he said, "'How are you going to get at the people on the Grass Roots The organization's answer was that rather than dealing with governments, "it is nec- essary to find a grass (roots infrastructure that has integ- rity, a serious concern for others." And for World Neighbors, the most most de- veloped local infrastruc- tures appeared to be the churches. In Zaire that has meant working with an in- digenous national church, in Indonesia with the local Mus- lim community and in India with the Ghandi Memorial Assn. But he stresses that World Neighbors is not a mission- ary effort in any way aimed at proselytizing nationals. It operates through a pro- cess of grants to local national groups which arc used for de- velopment projects on a re- volving loan basis locally ad- ministered in each project country. Bureaucracy It has turned down govern- ment funds because it doesn't want to get involved in the bureaucracy of either the U.S. government or the project country government. you can't say we're just peo- ple like you who are con- Peters said. At Ihe same time, Pelcrs sees a vast, gigantic reservoir in the church community in this country "that could aid in development projects built on the dignity of the recipi- ent people. "The churches are an ap- propriate instrument for de- lie said, "if they can .sol aside any concern for Iheir n w n menl." Afler all. he added, what's good news to 1he poor except thai.
