UCA1R Celebration Crisis of faith5 faced by Christian church today Bv MAHGAHKT UJCK1IUKST Hrralil Stall Writer "Today there is a crisis ol faith in the Christian Dr. A. C. Forrest, editor of Ihc United Church Observer, told members and adherents of .South Alberta United Churches Sunday. Dr. Forrest addressed worshippers al the Exhibition Pavilion hi a joint service dur- ing a one ilay program, United Church Adventure in nenewal ui'gaisizGcl by the Chinook Co- operative Parisli. "People don't know what the church is teaching or what Ihcy should believe, yet faitli should be Ihc priority of our he said. Dr. Forrest likened t h c Christians today with (he chil- dren of Israel when they faced the crisis ol crossing the lieu 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 Coaldalc at the afternoon mission rally of Ihc UCAIB celebration. Recent upheaval in his native land ot Trinidad slems from a desire lor social justice that is rooted in the gospel, he said. Mr. lialdeo was summing up Iho session in which Dr. II. W. K. Elliott of Soulhminstcr United Churcb, and Ralph Mil- ton, director of broadcastin. for the United Church in Al- terla, participated. Looking back over his years connected wilh Ihc mission of the church in Canada, Dr. El- liolt noted some of the changed and charging emphasis. One of the areas o{ change In the last 25 years is that of Indian education. The United Church look a lead in insisting on equal opportunity which end- ed the Iradilional boarding school program of a half-day oi classes and hall-day of work. Some years ago the church also concluded that taking chil- dren away Irom their homes, even with Uie best oi Mentions, was not the right approach, Dr, Ellioll said. Speaking from bis experience as missionary in the Philip pines, Mr. Milton contrasted Ihe poverty of mosl people in lira world with the wealth 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. "For every dollar sent abroad Canadians get SI.28 back." but even more afraid of the Egyptians behind them. Yet in spite of their [ears they had a [aith in the future and in M o s c r.' leadership, working under God. They had a faith in a power beyond them- Dr. Forrest said that fear of the future is Ihc cause nf Ihe church sometimes looking longingly backward at "the good old days" when Chris- linns were more obedient to authority and Bible oriented "thus sayeth Ihe Lord" edicts, "Fear isn't all Dr. For- rest said. "It's an instinct to avoid danger, but many ot Ihe imporlant decisions in the church today are made by fear and not always profitable or right." "He pointed out lhat 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 ,ind waste in the Western world has been caused through similar decisions made .hrougll fear. Dr. Forrest said lhat while :he "authority11 of the Bible is not popular in denominations oday largely because it has been so badly distorted over he generations, it nonetheless ias its place. Seek Ihe scriptures, seek lo understand the mind and Ihe experiences of God of the Church so you will come to know things that are true, so we can speak with lie 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 Churcb should be seeking ways to eliminate this discrepancy. Dr. Forrest said, "is the fulfilling of the Law, but what docs it mean in our com- munity, in our means working church? together faith without fear, to find what is most helpful." Dr. Forrest lauded UCAIR as a step in Ihe right direc- tion towards Christian co-op- eration. "It's great when you sec peo- ple of Ihe 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 spile of all the difficulties. "Have he concluded "don'l spend all your time in prayer. Listen to (he word of God. Go forward with faith." Youth night attended by 200 The Y o u I h Service of the UCAUl Celebration Sunday al .he Exhibition Pavilion tea Lured Dr. A. C.

The Tory administration elected last year has cut spend- ing in all departments, but in- creased emphasis on mental health, handicapped children, :he aged, the small farm and human rights, he said. The first three o! Ihe govern- ment's five priorities fall with- in the health and social devel 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 Lelhbridge public school dis trict of the Dorothy Gooder School for retarded students was an example. Nina Kuzyk, a Lclhforidgc di- rector at Ihe convention, we corned the government lake- over. Mrs, Kirzyk. in an interview, said the provincial government is able lo provide experts, equipment and facilities (hat private agencies just cannot af- ford. The Lethbridge Association (or Ihc Mentally Retarded lias asked Ihe government lo sup- port an prnjcut called Sunshine Ranch al Coaldale, where retarded adults run a greenhouse and make lawn fur- niture.
