Korean christians take firm stand by David Poling Nea just last year we witnessed one of the great gatherings in Church history when More than one million people swarmed into Seoul Korea to hear evangelist Billy Granam. Today a significant number of korean christians Are putting their Faith into action a confronting the dictatorial policies of president Park. Historically christians have known that Freedom of religion and Freedom of speech belong in the same bag. Pastors and prominent churchmen Are facing squarely the repressive policies of or. Park. There is now the realization that the suspension of National elections Means an attack on the press on academic Freedom and on the rights of Public worship and Assembly. Korea in 1974 reads like America 1776. Korean christians at great risk have channelled their deep personal pietism into intense political activism. Reports received in this country indicate that pastors College students seminarians and ecumenical councils Are prepared to go to prison rather than endure the Occidental tyranny that now grips Seoul. Faculty and students at Hanbuck Seminary a presbyterian theological Seminary and Tea gun Seminary a Catholic Seminary have shaved their Heads in Public protest against government repression. Major complaints Are varied but generally follow these lines 1. Freedom of Faith speech publishing Assembly. 2. Academic Freedom on Campus. 3. Ending police surveillance release of imprisoned students. 4. Practice of free democracy. 5. End to dominance of japanese investment. The korean Council of churches summarized the aspirations of Many christians when it stated a human rights Are the most valuable thing Given by god. God who created Man in his own image released Mankind from All kinds of restrictions and he intends a society in which human rights Are not infringed upon. A following his activity the Church believes the establishment of human rights to be its supreme task and the Mission of the Church in this generation is to be the establishment of human rights which is the basis of the survival of the individual and the foundation of the development of for More than a Century christians in Korea have looked to american churches for support guidance and Fellowship. The Early patterns of korean democracy arc traced to our vision of Freedom under a Constitution and Bill of rights. Let us Hope that As korean christians Are faithful to their tradition that our voice will not be silent but affirmative of their courageous stand. A new Simmi r no Nim. S Ano the illustrated Bisie Esther accuses Haman then the King asked. Who is he and where is he who Durst presume so and Esther said. The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. A Esther 6 5 6 Mordecai Cousin and Foster father of the orphan Esther who became Queen to King Ahasuerus lived a within the Gates of the Palace and overheard a plot to assassinate the King. This he revealed in his daily record of services and the King sleepless one night scanned the records. He was furious of course but grateful to Mordecai piled Many honors upon him. This infuriated Haman Mordecai a rival for Royal favor so he was surprised when Esther invited him to feast with the King and herself. There she pointed him out to the King As instigator of the plot. Next week Esther saves the jews by police state governments moral pressure needed to end suppression by George w. Cornell a religion writer new York a South americans daring Church Battler for human rights roman Catholic archbishop fielder camera of Brazil spoke recently of police state suppression in his Homeland and added a if the religions of the world do not bring moral pressure to Bear upon those responsible for such crimes humanity will no longer Trust them to speak in the name of the archbishop presented in Norway with a a a people a peace prize of $264,000 for his struggles in behalf of Justice and nonviolence used to be virtually alone among Church leaders in his outspoken clash with military regimes. But that is no longer the Case. Mounting opposition of catholics and protestants to oppressive government tactics in South America particularly in Brazil and Chile is showing up both there and in the United states. In the first action of its kind the administrative Board of . Catholic Bishops has charged repression of human rights in Chile and Brazil and urged the . Government to condition its economic Aid on changes in those policies. The . Bishops said they acted a in Solidarity with pretzel was originally a Symbol of Lent season new York a that curious convoluted chunk of bread the pretzel was in its origin a Christian Symbol. And there s a move afoot to revive the custom. Quot pretzels for god a is the name of the drive generated in Phoenix. Ariz., to put the pretzel Back into the Observance of Lent the 40-Day period of penitence and spiritual renewal preceding easter. A the idea has caught on tremendously Here among Young and old and catholics and prote stants a says Marlene Mccauley Leader of the Effort to Point up the real meaning of the pretzel and restore its religious use. Quot it s a holy Symbol of prayer and penance a she says. A a it a a sign of Christian the group urges families at the Start of Lent on Ash wednesday next week to explain to children the religious origin of the pretzel to serve it on each plate each Day of Lent at the evening meal opening with a Quot pretzel the prayer recalling Early Christian use of the pretzel goes in part a Grant us we Pray that we too May be reminded by the daily sight of these pretzels to observe the holy season of Lent with True Devotion and great spiritual the pretzel push comes at a time when lenten observances Are More open to innovation now that roman catholicism has lifted its former rules of mandatory fasting and abstinence from meat All through the period. Instead of focusing on fixed routines of dietary limitations the stress now in catholicism a and also in protestantism a is on positive programs for spiritual growth such As Spe Cial Bible study and religious Reading and on generosity to Aid those in need. As for the pretzels origins the Rev. Francis x. Weiser of Boston a Catholic scholar on the history of Christian customs says a it sounds surprising but the pretzel has a deep spiritual meaning for in he says the pretzel was made by christians first in the fifth Century As lenten bread since it consists Only of water flour and Salt also yeast nowadays but without eggs or milk forbidden Lent in ancient times. The pretzel originally was called latin for a Little arms a because of being shaped in the form of arms crossed in prayer. In Germany it became known As a a Brezell or a it still shows the form of arms crossed in prayer reminding us that Lent is a time of prayer a says father Weiser. He applauds the idea of reviving the pretzel custom Quot since we still have these breads around Blue Laws a Quot Blue Laws were so named because their originators the puritans published them in 1650 in a Book bound in Blue paper covers.
