Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
8 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, April 18, 1970- Youth Has A Message For Church And World By DAVID POLING /CHILDREN'S DAY used to be the last big event for the church year. It came along at the end of May or on the first Sunday in June. The only other thing that made any kind of splash in the life of a congregation before fall was the strawberry festival of the All-Church Picnic. Children's Day was not so pop- ular with Christian educators. They accused the youngsters of showing-off and parents of being far too proud of the memory-verse performance of their offspring. With Sunday School sort of giving way to long spring weekends, nobody had time to practise for Children's Day. It is not so popular in the sophisticated '70s but here is one vote for revival. In March of this year, this writer was particpating in a Lenten service conducted by the Union Presbyterian Church of Schenectady, N.Y. Pastor Donald Stake and a gathering of senior high school students began the program. Seventeen students stood up with a date marked in large numbers on a card. It went: 1954 - The year I was born, More Significant Tasks Taken By Church Women By GEORGE W. CORNELL NEW YORK (AP) - In a downtown church in Minneapolis, women now serve as ushers, showing people to their seats and taking up the collection-a role, traditionally reserved to men. ft was "time for a change," says Rev. Francis J. Fleming, pastor of St. Olaf Roman Catholic Church. And the men seem to approve. "They enjoy it," says a parish secretary, Pat T'Kach ."Most of the ushers are attractive young working women." Father Fleming says there was a shortage of males available for the ushering task, so the long-standing practice of using only men needed to go, along with other customs that have come to impede rather than enhance worship. Women, in an i ncreasing number of other congregations In the United States, now also serve as lectors, or readers, for Scripture lessons, as eduoaiton directors , choirmasters and leaders for worship serv- On other levels, too, women are taking on greater functions and more influential positions in American church life, beyond DR. CYNTHIA WEDEL their old-time work in special women's groups-but they're still barred from some roles. Cynthia Wedel, the president of the National Council of Churches and the first woman to hold the post, says: "At one time, the role of holding bazaars and church suppers fitted the role of women in gen-erai, but today women are better educated and they want more significant tasks to do." In Detroit recently, a young mm, Sister Mary Corrine Bart, succeeded a bishop as the Catholic archdiocese' chief representative of religious orders, including 4,000 monks and nuns, Says she: "Theres' a movement in the church of women taking more of the decision-making roles wherever they are qualified." The Vatican 1970 yearbook lists, for the first time, six positions filled by women. There are 66 women employed at the Vatican. Women serve increasingly on national church boards and agencies and on local church policy-making groups, b o tb Protestant and Roman Catholic. However, men still dominate the parish governing units. Male delegates also far outnumber women at denominational conventions, with women excluded from some Lutheran national bodies. Although Methodist, American Baptist and Presbyterian bodies admit women to the ordained ministry, few are on the clergy lists, and they're barred from it in Episcopal (Anglican), Lu tiherain, Southern Baptist, Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches in the U.S. Bible Spread Sets Record TORONTO - The Canadian Bible Society reports that world Scripture distribution reached a record high of 145 million bibles, testaments, gospels and selections in 1969. This was an increase of 34 million over the previous year. This impressive figure is far short of the estimated world needs. With the population of the world increasing at the rate of 60 million per annum and new literates in the millions, the opportunity of increased scripture distribution is greater than at any time in history. .

Distribution of bibles, testaments,. gospels, and scripture selections in Canada in 1969 was 1,185,000. The Canadian Bible Society provided more than $850,000 for the translation, publication and distribution of the scriptures throughout the world in 1969. This was the largest amount in its history and makes the Canadian Bible Society the third largest Bible Society in the world. Dean Gartrell New B.C.

What difference will the church make in the shape of my life tomorrow? Children and youth have something to say to the church and the world. It is daily and more often relevant than foolish. Older young people must have an active part in this society: in religion, education, and government. Already youth styles and tastes govern much of mass media. Sen. Barry Gold-water, R.-Ariz., hardly considered to be the chief advocate of the Now Genefation, has some pithy remarks to make in support of lowering the voting age to 18 years: "Some more idealism will do us all good. It will help remove the crusty, shop - worn reasons why the policies and goals which are promised to voters don't ever seem to get accomplished. It will make us find the positive answers that will put us on the right track. Instead of explaining why this law or" that program can't benefit the public the way we thought it would when it was passed, idealism will send us searching for innovations and new departures that will get the. job done. 'Whether we. are speaking of world peace, cleaning the air and water, stopping crime in the streets, eliminating smut in the mails or any other important goal, the energies and enthusiasm and urgings of young Americans will help us to do our best."
