UCAIR Celebration f f Jt I Crisis or raith raced by Christian church today Bv MAKGAKET l.UCKIIURST Herald Staff Writer "Today there is a crisis of faith in the Christian Dr. A. C. Forrest, editor of the United Church Observer, told members and adherents of South Alberta United Clmrclics Sunday. Dr. Forrest addressed worshippers at the Exhibition Pavilion hi a joint service dur- ing a one clay program, United Church Atlventure in Renewal organized by the Chinook Co- operative "People don't know what the church is teaching or what they should believe, yet faith should be the priority of our lie said. Dr. Forrest likened the Christians today with the chil- dren of Israel when they faced the crisis of crossing tiie Red Sea. "The Israelites were quite naturally afraid of the future, Gospel spreads revolution "Wherever the Christian gos- pel is preached it plants the seeds of declared Rev. Albert Baldeo of Coaldate at the afternoon mission rally of the UCAIR celebration. Recent upheaval in his native land of Trinidad stems from a desire for social justice that is rooted in the gospel, he said. Mr. Baldeo was summing up Ihe session in which Dr. H. W. K. Elliott of Southminster United Church, and Ralph Mil- ton, director of broadcasting for the United Church in Al- berta, participated. Looking back over his years connected with the mission of the church in Canada, Dr. El- liott noted some of the changed and changing emphasis. One of the areas of change iu the last 25 years is that of Indian education. The United Church took a ]ead in insisting on equal opportunity which end- ed the traditional boarding school program of a ha If-day of classes and hall-day of work. Some years ago the church also concluded that taking chil- dren away from their homes, even with the best oi fntentions, was not the right approach, Dr. Elliott said. Speaking from his experience as missionary in the Philip- but oven more afraid of the Egyptians behind them. Yet in spite of their fears they had a faith in the future and in Moses' leadership, working under God. They had a faith in a power beyond them- selves." Dr. Forrest said that fear of the future is the cause of the church sometimes looking longingly backward at "the good old days" when Chris- tians were more obedient to authority and Bible oriented "thus saycth the Lord" edicts. "Fear isn't all Dr. For- rest said. "It's an instinct to avoid danger, but many of the important decisions in the church today are made by fear and not always profitable or right." "He pointed out that in the secular world also, decisions made by fear have undesir- able ramifications. "The decision to cut China off 20 years ago was caused by fear of he said, and noted that untold suffering and waste in the Western world has been caused through similar decisions made through fear. Dr. Forrest said that while the "authority" of the Bible is not popular in denominations today largely because it has been so badly distorted over the generations, it nonetheless has its place. "Seek (he scriptures, seek to understand the mind of God and the experiences of the Church so you will come to know things that are true, so we can speak with he said. One of the great discrepan- cies of life, Dr. Forrest said, is that the fruits of the earth are not distributed evenly, and the Christian Church should be seeking ways to eliminate this discrepancy. Dr. Forrest said, "is the fulfilling of the Law, but what does it mean in our com- pincs, Milton contrasted the poverty of most people in the world with the wealth en- joyed by even the poorest in the West. Westerners are gaining at the expense of people in the under- developed lands. Even aid mon- ey has increased the poverty because of the strings attached, said Mr. Milton.

Dr. Forrest lauded UCAIR as a step in the right direc- tion towards Christian co-op- eration. "It's great when you see peo- ple of the church, young and old alike, coming together and saying, well, we've worshipped ttiis way for no long, maybe, we should try another way." He said it's a "great time" to be alive, to be a Canadian, and to be active in the Chris- tian church in spite of all the difficulties. "Have he concluded, "don't spend all your time in prayer. Listen to (lie word of God. Go forward with faith." Youth night O attendee! by 200 The Youth Service of the UCAIEl Celebration Sunday at the Exhibition Pavilion fea- tured Dr. A. C.

The minister told the annual meeting of the Alberta Associa- tion for the Mentally Retarded that civil rights for the handi- capped will be increased under new Mental Health Act and a Rill of Rights to lie passed this year by the legislature. The Tory administration elected last year tins cut spend- ing in all departments, but in- creased emphasis on mental health, handicapped children, the aged, the small farm and human rights, he said. The first three of the govern- ment's five priorities fall with- in the health and social devcV opment department. Mr. Craw- ford said his department spends one of every three pro- vincial government dollars. The province will lake over "much more" of the work now handled by private groups, he said. The recent takeover by the Lethbridge public school dis- trict of the Dorothy Gooder School for retarded students was an example. Nina Kuzyk, a Lethbriclgc di- rector at the convention, wel- comed the government take- over. Mrs, Kirzyk. in an interview said the provincial government is able (o provide experts, equipment and facilities (hat private agencies just cannot af- ford. The Lethbridge Association for Ihe Mentally Retarded lias asked the government to sup- port an 8C-acre project called .Sunshine Ranch at Coatdale, where retarded adults run a greenhouse and make lawn fur- niture. Mr. Crawford said handi- capped care in Alberta Is mov- ing away from large hospital type institutions toward small conimunily-bascd group homo and workshop facilities. Residential accommodation currently being expanded at centres for handicapped chil- dren at Red Deer and Edmon- ton, he said. The minister announcer! tba'. a new job a director of ser- annual salary in the ranye lias been created. Tha appointment will lxj announced in the legislature Ihis week. The director will assums work that is now loo much for the deputy minister of health to vices for the handicapped an j handle, he said. Birth defects can be cut two-thirds The Herald Legislature Bureau TIED DEER The number o[ babies born defective could be reduced "drastically" if (he scientific knowledge that exists today was widely applied, says the president of the Canadian Association for the Mentally Retarded, D. K. MacPherson, urged delegates at the annual meet- ing "of the Alberta Association for the Mentally Retard- ed to support research and press governments at all levels to act on this Proper pre natal care and genetic testing wera among ways he recommended to cut the incidence of retarded births. Mr. MacPherson, a Regina lawyer, saidi even with im- proved techniques, it will be a long time before retardation is eliminated completely, "I don't think we'll see that day, or our children, or our children's he said. However, application of cur- rent knowledge could reduce retardation from a present three births per hundred to one birth per hundred, lie said. "I don't have full confidence in any government, no matter who (be premier may he said, urging the provincial as- sociation, which 22 local groups and runs 17 i schools and 19 residences for the handicapped, to continue the fight for Improved care for the handicapped.
