Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETKBRiuGE HERAID Saturday, Auguil 7, [if You Ask Me.. by CHRISTINE PUHL j Indian educators to attend seminar IT'S really a shame as far as 1 am concerned how some 1 people are wrapped up so securely in their cozy little church frameworks and consider themselves beller than God in Judging the young people of today who are involved in the Jesus People rnovement. As quoted in Time, Baptist paster Rev. Bisango of Hous- ton Texas said, "All I know is Urat kids are turning on lo JESUS My concern is that the staid traditional church will reject the kids and miss the most genuine religious revival of our time." The movement towards Jesus by youth appears to be a natural outgrowth from the hippie movement which com- monly used words such as Jove and peace. The hard drug scene demanded total involvment but it was a great price to pay in peace of mind. A fellow staff member said, to really believe in Jesus is a much more intense trip than drugs and some people will always be on the outskirts, not quite willing to commit themselves totally. So I say, why not take advantage of the situation and bring tie word of God to these people instead of sitting back and trying to decide if their intentions are genuine or not. Did not God say in the Bible, "tliou hypocrite, first cast the beam out of 'thine own Isn't tills the age of grace, and Christians are supposed to love and build up each other and on no account, "judge, lest ye be judged." Despite the flowing locks, baggy jeans and hip talk many churches are accepting these young people and trying to create a place for them, with folk masses, rock songs and rap sessions during evening church services. Recently I was the guest of a supposedly upright Chris- tian woman in her church, at a service that was billed as a folk sen-ice. It actually turned cut to be a religious musical put on by the youth group in the church. Although it "wasn't what I expected, I was deeply touched by these young people really involved in delivering the Word of God in a new way and having fun doing it. They were enthusiastic and I imagine had spent a lot of time being involved instead of out partying- The woman next to me turned and said, "shouldn't the older people in the church be placed first in a service? After all, we fill the offering plate. I don't want to listen to this. These kids will just leave the community anyway and not contribute to our church anymore." All I can feel is pity for this woman, to think she is so selfish that she can't value the influence this event might have in these youths, minds and futures. God said "where two or three gathered together there I am in the midst, NOT where there is a huge fancy cathedral with men and women dressed to the hilt and being pleased with their posi tions, there I am. I can remember two years or so ago, when a lot of ma- terial was printed comparing a religious trip to a drug trip. Both included colors, visions and complete spiritual involve- ment. So afler asking kids to try Jesus instead of drugs and the kids are now trying it, stories are printed such a "Jesus People Another "Form of Mental Metha- done." Yes. it's a trip. Isn't the whole of life one trip? If we didn't have those ideas and beliels we would be as The Hollow Men in T. S. Eliot's poem. Maybe it is a fad, but at least it's a positive fad and as Billy Graham said, "I'm for anything that promotes the gospel of Jesus Christ." Whereas the church has sophisticated the Gospel and added this and that to complicate it, so you can't know Christ personally. The Jesus people say, "Have you met the Lord? He's beautiful to walk with. He can fill the void in your life." Also while none of them professes to believe in drugs, li quor or premarital sex, their prayers "are positive toward Christ; we didn't preach a gospel of according to Rev. Ron Coady, 43, who was recently in Calgary with a group of youths from Davis, California. An orientation program lor, southern Alberta teachers in- volved in the education of In- dian students from Hie Blood and Peigan Reserves will be held in Fort Maclcod Aug. 23- 27. .Several significant Indian educators and authors will par- ticipate in the five-day confer- ence being sponsored jointly by the Indian affairs depart- ment, the University of Leth- bridge and four southern Al- berta school districts. The speakers include Walter Currie, an Ojibway Indian re- cently appointed to head Trent University's Indian studies pro- gram and Howard Adams, a University of Saskatclicwan faculty' member and Canada's only Metis PhD. U of L educator, C. J. Scaolt, who is acting as co-ordinator for the orientation, said its pur- pose is to give teachers a great- er understanding and insight into Indian culture prob- lems. Mr. Schott noted most teach- ers currently teaching Indian students are rather deficient in their understanding of Can- ada1 native people. The conference has been structured to give maximum play to the ideas of delegates. The speakers will address the conference for an hour in the morning and then panel and small-group discussion will M- low for the remainder of the day. Each evening's program will be capped by an audio-visual presentation on some relevant subject.

It's an unusual set-up the result of a grant through the- federal government's Op- portunities for Youth program. The conceits are free. The group's next gig is a return en- gagement Saturday night at the Lethbridge Correctional In- stitute. Others have been a', senior citizens' homes, hospitals and just aboul every small town in southern Alberta. The group leader, Knut Loew- er, says the response has been good. Some of the best experi- ences the group has had this summer have been playing to avdiences in homes and hospi- tals people who ordinarily don't have a chance to hear live entertainment. Concerts in community halls in small towns have also drawn well, with the exception of two instances. Generally, the group has gone over well and at one point this summer it played eight shows in three days. Knut says the experience has been good for the group, which was formed earlier this sum- mer after the federal grant was received. Some of the mem- bers of the seven-member en- semble had played together be- fore, but basically it is an Op- portunities for Youth project. Through the summer the group has been through the usual growing pains that are the lot of any group just got ting started. But Knut empha sizes that the lessons (busines: and musical) learned in the process have been invaluable He's definitely in favor of the [overnment's grant program as means of allowing young peo- ile lo gain practical experi- ence in a field in which Ihey are interested. He's also justi- iably proud of the fact the Sunshine Company is the only music project west of Ontario hat received a federal grant., What happens when summer 5 over? Knut would like the jroup to stay together. Several members will be returning to school in the fall, but there is a chance a nucleus for a new Sunshine Company may re- main. Besides Knut, the group in- cludes Larry Rogalski Barbara Barker (vocals and BEATING THE HEAT Red Rock Canyon at Waterloo Lakes National Park has attracted scores of tourists and native southern Alberlans to its cool water and shade during the past month of torridly hot wealhsr. Daily temperatures ranging in the 90s have forced sufferers to try any number of cooling-aff exercises: ice-pack baths, slay- ing longer than necessary in airconditioned offices, sleeping in backyards and thinking twice before making the slightest exertion. Red Rock Canyon, one of Waterton's big. gest attractions, provides an unbeatable combination: cold mountain streams and stun- ning scenery.
