'Church separation hardening Courier Boyd opens ruptured lines NEW YORK (AP) Considering religious life in the United States now is mostly broken up into polarized blocs, Rev. Mal- colm Boyd keeps on the move seeking to open lines between them. "In the present situation, I find something essential about being on the says the roaming priest. Father Boyd, an innovative Episcopalian whose ministry has varied from parish pasto- rates and "freedom rides" to university classrooms and night club acts, maintains that communicating orthodox faith "demands unorthodox methods." In an interview, he said that Christianity in the U.S. is suf- fering "tremendous fragmentation" in which each separate segment is "talking only to itself, when the very opposite is needed." "What the church needs to do more than anything else is to bring together the disparate groups that have developed among our he said. "The different groups need to listen to each other, to share their experiences." However, as he sees it, Christianity now has diffused into five distinctive categories, of which the established denominations represent only one type, but from which the other groups have diverged. "Each is cut off in its own prison, reaching only them- he said. "There's a hardening of the separation. They need to break out of their blocs." In those circumstances, he said he finds it useful to keep in motion, literally "on the road in the Pauline circulating among the disconnected groups to stir some contact between them. "It's a ministry growing out of a he said. It makes him a kind of clerical a "runner" across ruptured religious terrain. It's a word that's come to characterize his work. The Runner is the title of his latest book, with the word capitalized in reference to Jesus, but used in small letters when referring to people running with him. Father Boyd, 51. a Buffalo, N.Y., native, was a Hollywood television producer before en- tering the ministry as an In- dianapolis, Ind., rector and later chaplain at Colorado State University and Wayne State University, from which he branched into a diversified ministry in civil rights and other areas. MALCOLM BOYD 'Absent Jesus' surprises Lethbridge clergyman By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Doctrinal differences and imprecise definitions lie behind the exclusion of spiritual representatives for more than churchgoers at Lethbridge Ministerial Association. "The Latter-day Saints believe Jesus Christ is God, but say others can become God too. The Jehovah's Witnesses do not recognize Jesus as God, denying the a Lethbridge clergyman explained this week. Saying he preferred not to be identified until he has had personal opportunity to study the new, unofficial ministerial constitution, the association member said he was surprised to learn the name Jesus Christ is not mentioned once in the draft copy. "I may have to take another he said. "I would think all present ministerial members recognize Jesus as God in human form." The ministerial executive is currently striving to activate wider interest and participa- tion in its affairs. About a "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John dozen to 15 spiritual leaders attend association meetings in a community numbering around 50 different Christian sects and denominational meeting places. Kingdom Hall spokesman J. M. Poole said Jehovah's Witnesses as a rule decline membership in all inter-faith groups. Mr. Poole said Witnesses are from time to time invited to join different groups but don't take part "on scriptural grounds." Mr. Poole said the ministerial executive may already be aware of this and thus have not bothered to in- vite Kingdom Hall represen- tation. Lethbridge stake high coun- cilman Melvin Jubber cited similar reasons for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints not belonging. "Mormon goals and objec- tives are not the same as churches involved in the ministerial Mr. Jubber said. "And other than some professional seminary teachers, our church has a 99 per cent lay membership. We don't have professional clergy." Seventh-day Adventist pastor Ron Johnson observed he was a little surprised after first arriving in Lethbridge. Mr. Johnson said he under- stood it to be "normal protocol" for new clergy to be invited to join local ministerial groups. Mr. John- son said he has not received an invitation, although he has been here seven months. Previous SDA pastors were members of the Lethbridge association, Mr. Johnson added. The denomination usually participates, he said. 'Unacceptable' minister to lead United Church GUELPH, Ont. (CP) For Rt. Rev. Wilbur K. Howard, the first non-white ever elected to head a major Christian church in Canada, winning the title of moderator of the United Church of Canada here Monday was a personal victory. Recalling how once, early in his ministry, he had been judged unacceptable by some United churchmen, the 62- year-old minister of Emanuel Church in Ottawa noted with satisfaction that "this time I've been accepted." The final selection of Dr. Howard was a long and seemingly difficult one for delegages to the Church's 26th general council. It took five ballots for the group to declare they had found a replacement at last for retiring moderator Right Rev. N. Bruce McLeod, minister of Bloor Street United Church, Toronto. Born and educated in To- ronto, Dr. Howard was ordained in 1941. He did post- graduate work at Union Theological Seminary in New York, where he received his doctorate of divinity in 1969. President of the United Church's Montreal and Ottawa conference two years ago, Dr. Howard has served in many fields of religious education, usually working with youth, and was an assistant editor of Sun- day school publications with the church for 12 years. He is certain to lead the United Church closer towards church union, which he feels is among the top issues facing the church. Negotiations for union with Campus Crusade eye on games Athletes in Action, the sports division of Campus Crusade for Christ, has expressed interest in "sending some teams to the Canadian winter games." Dave Naidl, Campus Crusade sports information director, reports the organization would like to expand on the Canadian scene. Athletes in Action comprises evangelical sportsmen who blend physical action and spiritual testimony in competition and exhibition games on school campuses across North America.

The church memberships, including adherents in the Christian Church Disciples of Christ, have not yet approved a plan of union already sanctioned in principle by leaders of both the United and Anglican Churches. Getting down to the basics of the Christian by erasing as many of the dividing lines between Protestant de- nominations as be one of his priorities as moderator, Dr. Howard told a news conference after his election. Following his philosophy that lay people should play a larger role in the Church, Dr. Howard says he considers himself a "team minister" in his own church where lay people are invited to join him in conducting services. He said he would not move to the United Church's headquarters in Toronto but instead would maintain his relationship with his congregation in Ottawa, which has asked him to combine both jobs. "The lay people will take on a great responsibility there so I will be free at appropriate times." he said. The church was not declining, he argued. Smaller membership was "like a pruning of the tree." "We are cutting out some dead wood and people who are left are really in earnest. Churches are more alive be- cause people are no longer just going along for a ride." Becoming the first black moderator was "a great step forward." "I think it simply demonstrates the Christian faith at work." Elizabeth Bartman, a Chris- tian Science congregation leader, said she and another member were once invited to attend an association meeting but were made to feel un- welcome. Miss Bartman said she is puzzled by persons with strongly held beliefs who can't seem to tolerate another equally strong belief that happens to differ. The most likely reason Christian Science is not represented, Miss Bartman said, is because the sect has no ordained clergy. Debate idea weighed Community spiritual leaders are divided in their response to the possibility of a public debate regarding their faith. Se.veral weeks ago, Lethbridge Church of Christ issued a challenge to the Latter-day Saints. Church of Christ members want to debate on the topic, The Bible versus the Book of Mormon. Aroused by a promotional letter distributed by LDS mis- sionaries, Church of Christ members say their challenge is sincere and comes "with genuine concern for the welfare of souls." Evangelist Donald Givens, representing Church of Christ members, says he plans to in- vite representatives of the Jehovah's Witnesses, Bap- tists. Seventh-day Adventists and Christian Science to take part in similar debates next spring. Provided discussion is in a spirit of love, the Seventh-day Adventists "would be open to consideration" of any debate invitation, said pastor Ron Johnson this week. Kingdom Hall spokesman J. M. Poole reports Witnesses would be "likely interested" in a public discussion. Rev. Helmut Poschwatta of Bethany Baptist Church responded saying "if Church of Christ is a Bible-believing group, there really isn't very much to debate." And Rev. Norman Carlson, minister at Bethel Baptist, added if debates become argumentative, there is really not much point. Elizabeth Bartman, speak- ing for the Christian Science congregation says she agrees with LDS Stake President Bryce Slringham who told The Herald last week debates are not Christ's way of doing things. Lethbridge Church of Christ is waiting until Sept. 3 for an official response to their in- vitation from Mormon leaders.
