Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 14, 1973 'Drug culture part of search for God' THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Rinc n s n i ELIGION By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer The North American drug culture is part of a religious search, Bible teacher Dr. Ar- min Gesswein said in a Leth- bridge interview this week. "In America, we seerred to go berserk for a time with Adventists give cash for lepers An offering for missionary hospital among lepers was to be received today at worship services of Lethbridge I Seventh-day Adventist Church, j Rev. Arthur Hands reports. I There are some 11 million cases of leprosy in the world, j according to a recent report from Loma Linda University School of Public Health. The Adveubist university's health program also announc- ed its intention to join a trans- African rehabilitation and re- search project presently study- ing leprosy. Adventist leper hospitals are operated in Malawi, Zambia, Zaire, Tanzania, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and New Guinea. lots of burnings and trouble on university campuses. The drug culture is a reaction against the academic climate which fails to equip people spiritual- Mr. Gesswein said. Out of this reaction has grown the hippie culture and the Jesus People movement, Mr. Gesswein added. "The Jesus People have made the established church re-exa- mine itself. Renewal is now the big word, with ecumenism and unity following along behind. The organized church has had to conduct its own self-exami- nation and self-judgment in res- ponse to the Jesus People and home Bible study he said. Mr. Gesswein was in Leth- bridge to conduct a three-day Bible teaching program at the Alliance Church. A graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Mo., Mr., Gesswein was ordained as a Lutheran clergy- man. He participated extensive- ly in the 1937-1938 Norwegian revival, and has worked as an assocaate of Billy Graham in several evangelistic cru- sades. Mr. Gesswein explained his attempts to operate his mini- stry at two levels, hoping and I praying for revival. "Preaching is ordained of Gcd.'' Mr. Gesswein said. "The pulpit follows the Biblical pat- tern. But I also like to get down among the people, to in- teract, to hear them pray and testify." Most clergymen are trained for a frontal approach plat- form, pulpit and choir when they could be receiving tre- mendous spiritual power from their congregation, if they would allow feed-back in worship ser- vices, Mr. Gesswein said. "It could well be we will see more of the dialogue type of worship service in future he said. "However, many Christians of the older generation are at a loss when anyone tries to in- troduce this sort of worship just now. Keep an eye on the young people. They sense what is coming and are often leaders in spiritual move- ments. But they also need lea- dership themselves." Mr. Gesswein said he isn't troubled by the criticism aimed at Key 73. the year-long co-op- erative Christian evangelism thrust. "If the Lord is doing some- thing, there is going to be sta- tic. It's a healthy Mr. Gesswein said. Discover British Columbia's "Sun Country" The sunniest vacation country in all of beautiful British Columbia that's the sparkling Okanagan- Similkameen.

For three years the Indian spiritual master. Sri Chinmoy, has been conducting weekly in- terdenominational mediations for United Nations delegates and staff at the UN Church Centre here. The lunch-hour sessions a note of incongruity amid the heated debates and political' manoeuvring that go on at the Secretariat building across the street Says Sri Chinmoy: "The UN members are trying j to bring about peace through j i political means, which is abso- lately right according to their understanding and enlight- enment. I feel, according to my own realization, that the way I am bringing down peace will be i effective. Each of us knows how 'he can be of service to man- i kind." j Sri Chinmoy came to the I United States from his native j Bengal in 1964 after spending 20 years in an ashram, or religious community, practising niedita- tion and spiritual disciplines. j Besides holding mediations I for UN personnel, the 42-year- old yogi is spiritual head of I some 40 meditation centres in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. He has written more than 20 books on yoga and East- ern mysticism and been invited j to lecture at many major uni- J versities. Consecration Pope Paul VI embraces Stefan Cardinal Trochta of Czechoslovakia after giv- ing him the symbolic red binetta during consecration ceremonies af the Vatican Thursday. Archbishop Tro- chta was secretly named cardinal four years ago but the elevation was an- nounced only last month because the archbish- op lived in a Commun- ist country at a time of tense relations between the Church and Prague author- ities.

Ernie Martin study WE INVITE YOU TO MAKE THE ARMY YOUR CHURCH HOME 250 attend CGIT rally Canadian Girls In Training attending a spring rally in Lethbridge last weekend were reminded differences in ap- pearance, personality and cul- tural background all help to enrich life. Patti Wigglesworth, a spe- cialist in early childhood edu- cation with the city commun- ity services department urged delegates to accept and ap- preciate the things that make individuals different. A committee of CGIT work- ers from McKillop United Church planned the day-long session attended by 250 South- ern Alberta delegates. Co-chairmen for the event were Kim Gray and Judy Blakely of Lethbridge and Debbie Bellamy of Medicine Hat. HYTHE (CP) The chair- man of the Committee for Education said this week many public school trustees in Alber- ta favor teaching the theories of divine creation. Pvev. Neil Unruh of the Alli- I area Church in this South Peace I area community, said his com- irtittEe received "well over 100" replies to a questionnaire sent to 700 trustees. He said 80 per cent of the replies favor the aims of the committee. The poll asked the trustees if they were in favor of making all scientific evidence and research relating to diverse forms of life and the universe, including re- search done by creationists, evolutionists and all other sci- entists, available to students. SUPPORT Mr. Unruh maintains there is strong scientific evidence to support the theories of divine creation and said they should be presented to students to main- tain a balanced picture. Mr. Unruh said instruction an research materials available in Alberta schools show a prepon- derance of evolutionary theories' of man's development on his planet. Mr. Unruh said education min- ister Lou Hyndman has prom- ised a policy statement on the is- sue, first raised here last year, and that members of the committee have met with the province's secondary school sci- ence committee and others re- sponsible for curriculum in "fruitful" discussions. SURPRISE Executive director Dr. Lowell Williams of the Alberta School Trustee's Association said his association knew nothing of the survey and expressed surprise that a survey involving a large number of trustees could occur without his office knowing about it. He said there has been some discussion of the biblical crea- tion versus evolution issue in ASTA circles but it has not reached the point where the organization has had to take a stand. As a result the ASTA has no statement, nor does he foresee it becoming an issue in the near future, he said.
