Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, United Church moderator doesn't wince at word 'Negro' GUELPH, Ont, (CP) He has white, close-cropped crmkl> hair. He is a bit shy of five feet MV and a half He has a and ho doesn't shrink from the word Negro. He has the suavity of the perfect coax, persuade and coerce Almost his first words, upon being chosen to head Canada's largest Protestant church, uere to the scrutineers who checked the election ballots To them my thanks for a dit tifult job When they had to check 'black' they had to make sure it didn't mean John." He is Right Rev. Wilbur Kenneth Howard, moderator of the United Church of Canada, who will hold office under present procedural plans that some day may end in one huge Protestant family, for three years instead of the usual two Several commissioners who voted for him Monday at the 26th general council of the United Church said they did so not because of his color, but because of his person, a man capable of undertaking and carrying out the task of leading two million Canadians on to a path they themselves do not know where it ends. They said of him: "He has a willingness to listen There is a quietness about him, a feeling that per- suasiveness is the way to lead, a belief that a ministry is teamwork and not a ministry of a dominating figure. In his first press interview after his election, Dr. Howard said: "I was surprised and de- lighted. It was impossible to know how it was going. I thought my chances were fair. I approach this job with humility The records say Dr. Howard is 62, but he says "I have a birthday only every four years He was born in Toronto Feb. 29, 1912 Dr. Howard is minister of Emmanuel United Church in Ottawa and retains that pasto- rate, but during his necessarily frequent absences from his pulpit he will have help from his "family." His family is a group of about 30 key members of his congregation, for Dr. Howard is unmarried. He says his is a team minis- try in Ottawa and he hopes to carry that type of ministry forward as moderator. Dr. Howard was elected on the fifth unusual for a general some commissioners said later the number of votes was due largely to the number of candidates, eight. One of them was John Black, a Kingston Ont., lawyer who had been considered almost a shoo-in. He was eliminated on the fourth ballot. Dr. Howard was a popular candidate, but not the "favor- and was nominated by three conferences, Ottawa and Montreal, Manitoba and London. His church in southeast Ot- tawa is in a middle-class area and his congregation could be described as middle-class made up of civil servants, members of the armed forces, and retired persons. There are four blacks in his flock. He describes it as "average suburban." "I have no Dr. Howard said "But, I really have about 30 of them, lay people actively involved in the work of the church." Of his selection as moderator "It gives you a great deal of confidence in the church. You feel the support of people. You feel that, well, people are able to look for someone who may have a contribution, and they match the job with the man they want "It's a great church, I think a lot of exciting things are happening. "Sometimes we haven't been too good at telling our story and one of the things I hope to do is to tell the story of the church. "I have some gifts in the spoken and written word." For 12 years Dr. Howard was an associate editor of the church's Sunday Day Publica- tions and has served in many fields of religious education. He was boys' work secretary of the Ontario Religious Education Centre for eight years and the Christian education secretary of Manitoba conference for four vears.
