Kiuuhasls Catholicism is pitting Beac- hing emphasis on that bestow- al of forgiveness and restora- tion .of broken relationships, an objective that also lias im- plications for other Christians and for Judaism. "Renewal and reconcilia- tion" is the keynote set by Pope Paul VI. In the extensive preparations for the year, var- ied suggestions have come from many quarters for steps by the church anil others to heal contlicls and renew lies, both spiritually and tangibly. "H is a lime for says Timothy Cardinal Man- ning, Angeles, chainnan of the U. S. bishops' commit- tee on the observance. It "of- fers an opportunity to bind the wounds that tear at us in- dividually and as members of our society." Numerous Protestant and Catholic scholars have urged special efforts toward over- coming cleavages between de- nominations and rebuilding nf unity. Tu further that cause, the Rev. A very Dulles, a noted Jesuit theologian of the Calbo- Inflation Hits Churches By George Cornell AP Religion Writer NKW YORK (AP) Like a Jot of other institutions and in- dividuals, American churches look in more money in 1973. but it wasn't worth as much. An annual roundup of fig- ures from 41 national Protes- tant denominations shows their 46 million members con- tributed al a record per capita rate averaging each. While'thc overall giving was up 7.7 percent for 1973, the dollar lost 9.fi percent of its purchasing power, which left the churches short in actual financial means from the pre- vious year. The statistics, gathered by the_ National Council of Churches, show that contribu- tions in Ihe 41 denominations totaled about billion. However, the denominations supplying figures make up on- ly about IH percent of the na- tion'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 fig- ures, run close to billion annually. However, the Coun- cil compilalion provides the only summary directly from denominations all of them Protestant bodies. For the second year in suc- cession, the new report shows that most of the denomina- tions had fewer members, but they arc giving more money. Ten principal denomina- tions with a total of 27.8 mil- lion members, down by 1.8 percent from the previous year's membership, reported contributions up 5.5 percent. Only the Southern Baptist Convention, among larger Protestant bodies, had a mem- bership gain, up 1.9 percent to 12.3 million, coupled with a Brown Rules Out Inaugural Fete SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Governor-elect Edmund Brown, jr., has decided against having Ihe traditional inaugural ball. "I don't think it's neces- sary." Ihe 36-year-old Brown, a bachelor, told reporters at a news conference. "H just doqsn't fit into my style of the way I operate. We'll have an inaugural. It will be in keeping with the ilignily of the office and the way I see the problems ahead." he said. Brown, a Democrat, will succeed Gov. Reagan on Jan. fi. Aurora Borealis Simulation Set MOSCOW (UPI) Soviet and French scientists arc planning to manufacture an artificial Aurora Borealis by firing an "electron gun" in space, Ihe newspaper Pravda says. The Aurora Borealis northern lights is a specta- cular display of colored lights appearing periodically in the Arctic sky as a result of high- speed electrons and protons from the sun 'becoming trapped in the Van Allen ra- diation belt above the earth. Pravda said scientists plan lo launch a geophysical rocket from Kerguelen island In the southern Indian ocean. U will carry into the earths magne- losphere a Soviet-developed electron accelerator In shoot into space a beam of charged particles. The particles will streak north along the "rails" of the magnetic fields lines of force large gain in contributions, up 11.1 percent. Local Use As in previous years, the bulk of the contributions stayed home, being used for local parish or congregational expenses. These took up about billion. 83 percent of the total. The other 17 percent was passed on for national denomi- national programs and mis- sions. As usual, the highest rate of per capita giving occurred in denominations which empha- sise tithing, the giving of a tenth of income to church work. Seventh-Day Adventists .topped the list, with members averaging contributions of each. Most of it percent went lo national be- nevolences and missions, re- versing (he pattern of most Protestant bodies where the li- on's share of the money is used locally. Same Story in C. R. Churches in the Cedar Rapids area reflect Ihe same situ- ation as the other churches in the nation conlribulions are going up jusl enough to keep up with inflation. In a random survey Thursday, eighl churches were con- tacted and asked about their situalion. The Rev. Harry finger of Calvary Baptist church iiotcd Ihal while giving has gone up seven lo eight percent in his church, it was offset by the rise in inflalion. He said the church has seen a ten-percent increase in membership over the last year and lie said this factor is keeping Calvary relatively stable1. Fewer Members Noelridge Baptisl church has fewer members than il did lasl year and is receiving less in contributions, while the budget has gone up slightly, according to Richard Trask, ste- wardship chairman of the church. St. Andrew Lutheran church is not gaining any ground on inflation said the Rev. James Lesher. He said although con- tributions have increased slightly, the church has just kept pace with the higher cost of living. He said St. Andrew's membership is relalively but a sizable portion of those pledging have boosted their pledges an average of 28 percent for next year. The Very Rev. Canon IV A. Loferski of SI. John's Episco- pal church said his church is following Ihe national Ircnd. Conlribulions are up, bul at about the same rate as inflation. Candle Costs Double The Rev. Charles Mehaffey of Asbury United Methodist church said the membership in his church increased per- cent in the lasl year and giving has increased Ihree percent. But because of inflalion. (he church has experienced a de- crease in buying power, lie said candles cost 'S8 a dozen a year ago and are now up lo a dozen. He said the church budget was being increased only 1.75 percent to try In hold Ihe line. Growth at Peace Christian Reformed church was rela- lively small, one family, but the contributions increased about per family per week said the Rev Karl nykpmn. He said he noticed that paper costs were up along with other small items. The budget for 1975 he said was being in- creased by lo meet inflation's higher prices and to broaden the church's ministry. No Increase The Rev. Karl Huebner of Calvin-Sinclair United Presby- terian church said there was no increase in membership bul Ihal giving had increased 10 percent. He said the church was able to live wilh il like everyone else. The increased giving helped cover the costs of such things as wages and utilities. The membership at Concordia church increased less than ten percent and giving increased a lillle over ten percent said the Rev. Paul Scheldt. He said his church was in a pretty good situalion. lie said they had nol fell.any big pinches yel bul did sec lhat paper products and books had gone up. Bul he said the items were nol big enough lo cause problems in Ihe budget. Card Players Lose Pants, Cash DENVKK (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 card game at a private club and ordered Turbaned Finishes Training FORT Calif. (UPI) The first soldier allowed lo wear a Hindu headdress has completed basic (raining at this army camp. Private Ilari Nam Singh, Klliolt, 23, wearing his olive drab turban, received honors as the best recruit in his com- pany. Under new army rules, he was also allowed to keep his long red beard as well as religious jewelry. Klliolt, a Sikh, received Ihe highest score in marksman- ship and physical fitness. He said he hopes to heroine an of- ticer. Klliotl said Ihe only prob- lem he faced durum his basic training was getting a mask over Ins beard members lo stand against Ihe wall. The robbers searched the Hip Sing club, then the card players were ordered lo remove their trousers. The victims said Ihe luo men collected the pants, wilh wallets still in them, in a bag and fled out a rear door. The card players'reportcd losing SS7II. Chamber Safe for Rocky WASHINGTON (UPI) Po- lice used a Gennah shepherd dog lo sniff oul Ihe senate chamber for suspicious ob- jects before Nelson -Rockefel- ler's swenring-in. The dog systematically trol- led along the aisles and poked its into nooks and crannies. It paused over Ihe antique brown spitoons bul found nn- Ihing amiss. Telephones arc great for visiting and also Ihe easy way In place a want ail' lie University of America, suggests that Ihe church lift Us condemnations of lhosi> .who reject certain of its doc- trines about the 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 lo assent to them was an adecpiate basis for ex- cluding persons from Ihe faith. Stressing that he himself was nol denying Ihe doclrines, he says removing Hie anathe- mas aboul them would con- tribute to reconciliation with oilier Christians one of the aims of the Holy Year. Protestants do not accept Ihe two dogmas, defined by Catholicism in 1H54 and Pointing up links with Juda- ism, the Vatican has issued a booklel on Ihe origins of the "holy year" in the ancient Jewish Year of Jubilee, lire- pared by Ralihi Marc II. Ta- ncnbaum, of Ihe American Jewish committee. Denis ForKlven In the ancienl Jewish ob- servance, set forth in the Book of Leviticus, debts were for- given, land restored to its original owners and slaves freed. Citing these acts nf clemen- cy, Pope Paul h'ls appealed to governments to consider granting amnesty to prison- ers, particularly political pris- oners "who may have been caught up in polilical and so- cial upheavals loo immense lor them lo be held fully re- sponsible." Among Ihe many pilgrim- ages In Rome and Jerusalem during the year, several are to include both Jews and Chris- tians of various denomina- tions, co-sponsored by the Jewish commitlee and the (Iraymiior Ecumenical Insti- tute of the Atonement Friars of Uraymoor, N.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
