Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Simplified The Cedar Rapids Sat.. Nov. 30. 1971 Goal Is To Reach Hliterate C.R. Worship Services By David E. UPI Religion Writer Advent, which begins this year with (lie first Sunday in December, Ls traditionally within the churches a lime of preparing for Ihe festival cele- brations of ChriHlmas and Epiphany. So, too, with the American Bible society, which is deep Into a project of preparing the Bible fur Ihe Illiterate and the barely literate. "Literacy said the Ilcv. John D. Erlckson, the society's executive secre- tary, "has been extremely successful in the past few dec- ades." But often, he said up to 50 percent of the new readers in LAKE LOTOWANA, Mo. (UPf) Whether the congrega- tion got the point of the sermon or not, it produced a profit of for the Lake Lolawana United Methodist church. The Rev. David Finestead, 30, said he's uncertain if the experiment had the right effect on the church members who participated. Pastor Finestead put of his savings in the collec- tion plate and told his congregation to help themselves as a demonstration of the parable of the talents. Parable The parable concerns a master who gave money to throe servants while he was away to do with what they chose. Two returned a profit for the master, but the third buried his "talents" and received a stern reprimand when the master returned. Pastor Finestead said Hie purpose was to demonstrate the parable's message about using God's grace given to each person. Regardless, the parishioners left the church Sept. 15 and earned the profit with bake sales, community dinners, lawn mowing, music lessons and other activities. Heaping Sunday, the day of accounting, the collection plates were heaped with "Some people thought the parable was about money." Pastor Finestead said. "But it was about how we should're- spond and dedicate our talents to the Lord. "The emphasis of the parable is accountability. H shows what people should do when they encounter something that is given to them." the world return to illiteracy because they have nothing to read. The aim of the society's program, which officials esti- mate will cost some million, Is to produce and dis- tribute some 725 million Good News scripture literacy selec- tions in more than 200 lan- guages. Matthew's Version In the English version for new readers, the birth of Je- sus, from the second chapter 'of Matthew, reads like this: Jesus was born in of Bethlehem, In tho land of Judea, While Herod was king. Soon afterward some men who studied the stars came from the East to Jerusalem. They asked, "Where is the baby Who will become the King of the Jews? We saw his star When it came up in the East. We have come to worship Him Luke's Version In the version of the birth of Jesus in the book of Luke, the story is told like this: She was pregnant, And while they were in Bethlehem, The time came for her to have her baby. She gave birth to her first son, Wrapped him in cloths And laid him in a feed box in a barn, For there was no room in an inn Where they could stay. According to society offi- cials, not only is the simple language designed to assist new readers, but the arrange- ment of tho story Into "sense lines" with the emphasis and stresses developed through Indenting ulso playing a key role in helping the new reader loam. Tho program is designed around a series of 30 publica- tions which start now readers with simple' words and then move them through five read- ing levels of more complex material. The first level is barely above the primer level of basic literacy training, while the fifth level is near the .common language level of much available reading mat- ter, such as newspapers. Jewish people around the world will begin the eight-day celebration of Chanukah on Dee. 8. Tho celebration IB marked by kindling lights on each eve- ning of the holy day with an additional light added every evening of Chanukah. Chanukah celebrates the victory of the Jewish people over the enemy in 165 B.C. As a result of the victory, the Jewish people were able to worship freely again. They reded- icatcd the Temple in Jerusalem to the service of God. From this event the name of the celebration, Chanukah, is derived which means dedication. The lights kindled on the holy days symbolize the victory of man's enlightened spirit over evil and ignorance. Temple Judah will hold Its annual Chanukah celebration Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. The program will include kindling of the holy day by the religious school children, singing and dinner. Rabbi Israel Zoberman wishes the people of Cedar Rap- ids, in the name of the Jewish community, the blessings of peace and happiness. He said.
