"Renewal and reconciliation is the keynote set by Pope Paul VI. In tin* extensive preparations for the year, varied suggestions have come from many quarters for steps by the church and others to heal conflicts and renew ties, both spiritually and tangibly. "It is a time for healing," says Timothy Cardinal Manning, his Angeles, chairman of the V S. bishops' committee on the observance It “offers an opportunity to bind up the wounds that tear at us individually and as in em In* rs of our society." Numerous Protestant and Catholic scholars have urged special efforts toward overcoming cleavagc*s between denominations and rebuilding of unity. To further that cause, the Rev.

While the overall giving was up 7.7 percent for 1873, the dollar lost {Cfi percent of its purchasing power, which left the churches short in actual financial means from the previous year The statistics, gathered by the# National Council of Churches, show that contributions in the 41 denominations totaled about $5 billion However, the denominations supplying figures make up only about K4 percent of the nation’s 71 million Protestants. Also, major Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Jewish bodies do not make overall giving figures available Contributions Total religious contributions in the country, shown through government tax deduction figures. run close to SII billion annually. However, the Council compilation provides the only summary directly from denominations — all of them Protestant bodies For the second year in succession. the new report shows that most of the denominations had fewer members, but they are giving more money. Ten principal denominations with a total of 27.8 million members, down by 18 percent from the previous year’s membership, reported contributions up 5 5 percent. Only the Southern Baptist Convention, among larger Protestant bodies, had a membership gam, up I 9 percent to 12 3 million, coupled with a Brown Rules Out Inaugural Fete SAI HAMKNTO. ( alif (AP) — Governor-elect Edmund Brown, jr., has decided against having the traditional inaugural ball. “I don’t think it s necessary,” the 36-year-old Brown, a bachelor, told reporters at a news conference ‘it just doesn t fit into my style of the way I operate. We ll have an inaugural It will be in keeping with the dignity of the office and the way I see the problems ahead.’’ he said. Brown, a Democrat, will succeed Gov Reagan on .Ian 6 Aurora Borealis Simulation Set MOSCOW (UPI) - Soviet and French scientists are planning to manufacture an artificial Aurora Borealis by firing an “electron gun" in space, the newspaper Pravda says. The Aurora Borealis — northern lights — is a spectacular display of colored lights appearing periodically in the Arctic sky as a result of highspeed electrons and protons from the sun becoming trapped in the Van Allen radiation belt above the earth Pravda said scientists plan to launch a geophysical rocket from Kerguelen island in the southern Indian ocean It will carry into the earths magnetosphere a Soviet-developed electron accelerator to shoot into space a beam of charged particles The particles will streak north along the “rails" of the magnetic fields lines of large gain in contributions, up ll I percent. I/Ocal Use As in previous years, the bulk of the contributions stayed home, being used for local parish or congregational expenses. These took up about $3.9 billion, 83 percent of the total The other 17 percent was passed on for national denominational programs and missions. As usual, the highest rate of per capita giving occurred in denominations which emphasize tithing, the giving of a tenth of income to church work Seventh-Day Adventists Hipped the list, with members averaging contributions of $453.19 each, Most of it — 70 percent — went to national benevolences and missions, reversing the pattern of most Protestant bodies where the lion's share of the money is Used locally Same Story in C. R. Churches in the Cedar Rapids area reflect the same situation as the other churches rn the nation — contributions arc going up just enough to keep up with inflation. In a random survey Thursday, eight churches were contacted and asked about their situation. The Rev. Harry Enger of Calvary Baptist church noted that while giving has gone up seven to eight percent in his church, it was offset by the rise in inflation. He said the church has seen a ten-percent increase in membership over the last year and he said this factor is keeping Calvary relatively stable. Fewer Members Norridge Baptist church has fewer members than it did last year and is receiving less in contributions, while the budget has gone up slightly, according to Richard Trask, stewardship chairman of the church. St. Andrew Lutheran church is not gaining any ground on inflation said the Rev. James Lesher. He said although contributions have increased slightly, the church has just kept pace with the higher cost of living. He said St. Andrew’s membership is relatively stable,' but a sizable portion of those pledging have boosted their pledges an average of 28 percent for next year. The Very Rev. Canon I). A. Loferski of St. John’s Episcopal church said his church is following the national trend Contributions are up. but at about the same rate as inflation Candle Costs Double The Rev ( buries Mehaffev of Asbury’ United Methodist church sfld the membership in his church increased 20 i>er-ctnt rn the last year and giving has increased three percent. But because of inflation, the church has experienced a decrease in buying power. He said candles cost $8 a dozen a year ago and are now up to $16 a dozen He said the church budget was being increased only I 75 percent to try to hold the line Growth at Peace Christian Reformed church was relatively small, one family, but the contributions increased about $2 per family per week said the Rev. Earl Dykema. He *>aid he noticed that paper costs wen* up along with other small items. The budget for 1875 he said was l>eing increased by S3 (NNI to meet inflation’s higher prices and to broaden the church’s ministry No Increase The Rev. Earl Huebner of Calvin-Sinclair United Presbyterian church said there was no increase in membership but that giving had increased IO percent. He said the church was able to live with it like everyone else. The increased giving helped cover the costs of such things as wages and utilities. The membership at Concordia lutheran church increased less than ten percent and giving increased a little over ten percent said the Rev. Paul Scheldt He said his church was in a pretty good situation He said they had not felt any big pinches yet but did see that paper products and books had gone up But hi* said the items were not big enough to cause problems in the budget Card Players Lose Pants, Cash DENVER (AP) - Twelve men lost their pants during a card game and two masked robbers won the final hand Police said two armed men interrupted a c ard game at a private club and ordered Turbaned GI Finishes Training FOHT OHO Calif. (UPI) -The first soldier allowed to wear a Hindu headdress has completed basic training at this army camp. Private Hart Nam Singh, Elliott, 23, wearing his olive drab turban, received honors as the* t>est recruit rn his company. Under new army rules, tic* was also allowed to keep his long red beard as well as religious jewelry. Elliott, a Sikh, received the highest score in marksmanship and physical fitness He said he hopes to become an officer Elliott said the only problem he fami during his basic training was getting a damask over his beard lie University of America, suggests that the church lift its condemnations of those .who reject certain of its doctrine's about tin* Virgin Mary Referring to Catholic dog-mas of Mary's immaculate conception (birth without sin) and bodily assumption into heaven, he questioned whether these beliefs are so central that failure to assent to them was an adequate basis for excluding persons from tin* faith. Stressing that lie himself was not denying the doctrines, he says removing the anathemas about them would contribute to reconciliation with other Christians — one of the aims of the Holy Year Protestants do not accept tin* two dogmas, defined by Catholicism in 1854 and 1850 Pointing up links with Judaism. the Vatican has issued a booklet on the origins of the* “holy year” in the ancient Jewish Year of Jubilee, pre pared by Rabbi Marc ll Ta-nenbaum, of the American Jewish committee Debts Forgiven In the ancient Jewish observance, set forth in the Book of Leviticus, debts were forgiven, land restored to its original owners and slaves freed Citing these acts of clemency, Pope Paul has ap|x*uled to governments to consider granting amnesty to prison-ors, particularly political pris-oners “who may have been caught up in political and social upheavals too immense for them to Is* held fully responsible ” Among the many pdgrim-ages to Rome and Jerusalem during the year, several are to include both Jews and Christians of various denominations, co-sponsored by the Jewish committee and the Graymoor Ecumenical Institute of the Atonement Friars of Graymoor, N.
