Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December S, 1970 tghts and quotations on cove TORONTO (CP) High- lights of the Covenant of Union proposed for Ihe Anglican Church of Canada, the United Church of Canada and the Cliristian Church Disciples of Christ: Uniting congregations may continue" their customary styles of worship. Prayer books now in use may continue to be used. Freedom of choice permitted "no one will be compelled to perform or submit to ac- tions that run contrary to his convictions." Wine or grape juice ntay con- tinue to be used for commu- nion. Indentities as separate churches surrendered "willing- ly." Pioneer Alberta Clrurcli marks 99tli birthday EDMONTON (CP) Mc- Dougall United Church marked the 09th anniversary of its founding here and the congre- gation was told that the pi- oneering spirit which establish- ed Alberta's oldest Protestant church must live on to meet to- day's challenges. Douglas Roche, editor of the Western Catholic Reporter, said the challenge today is mental rather than physical. The modem church must move in two directions, he said. It must be a sanctuary where the gospel was taught and at the same time it must extend its work into the community to reach modern men dominated by technology. There were risks involved in Euch a course of action. "We might lose the people we've had all along and still not win over the new genera- tion." But it was a risk the church must take to ensure its sur- vival. CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 llth St. S. Mr. D. Maisey, Organist J. R. CHAPMAN, Minister Sunday a.m. Morning a.m. Evening p.m. EVERYBODY WELCOME Apostolic ministry bishop, presbyter, deacon affirmed. Flexibility in methods and in- stitutions emphasized. AH forms ot ministry, eluding ordination, open women. Organizational structure to be pastoral zones, districts, re- gions and a national assembly. Here are the salient quota- tions from the proposed Cove- nant of Union: We are able to become visi- bly one because in the essen- tials of faith and practice we are already one. Although we are essentially cue, we bring into union a va- riety of opinions, practices, emphasis and habits of mind. These differences have been sources of division and es- trangement and we are pen- itent for our part in the frag- mentation of the church. We recognize that living to- gether will involve both the dis- ippearance of some familiar practices and the effort of learning to appreciate new pat- terns and attitudes. We willingly surrender our identi- ties as separate churches that they may be fulfilled in a wider unity. We move, together as one into a future whose outlines are in- evitably vague and uncertain. This will call for new attitudes, new approaches and new struc- tures. We delcare our readiness to adopt such new vocabularies of confession, new forms of wor- ship, new methods of outreach and new areas of service as obedience to God and respon- siveness to the needs of the world may require. We acknowledge the gift of apostolic ministry bishop, presbyter, deacon and other forms of ministry. The new Church affirms the Apostles' and Niccne Creeds. Because we always need to communicate our faith in the language men are speaking and in relation to the problems they face, w.e recognize the right and duty of the new Church to provide contemporary state- ments of faith and forms of worship, and to define the reia- EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH 12th Ave. and Mayor Magrath Dr. Phone 327-6113 Pastor: REV.

In mailers which are not essential to imity in the faith the Church must be careful to preserve liberty of opinion. Without abridging the freedom of congregations to continue their customary styles of wor- ship or to experiment with new forms, these agreements ac- knowledge the existence of a basic pattern of Christian wor- ship that can claim almost uni- versal acceptance throughout the new Church, Congregations may employ in their worship the familiar words cf the Book of Common Prayer of the Anglican Church of Canada, Christian Worship of the Christian Church Disci- ples of Christ or the Service Book of the United Church of Canada. Change needed O to meet needs of new north REGffiA (CP) Most Rev. G. F. C. Jackson, Archbishop of Qu'Appelle, told an Anglican convention the church must "shake off its lethargy and grapple with the needs of the new north." He said the church in the north must change, to keep pace with the rapid indus- trialization as new communi- ties spring up in the wake of exploration and mining ven- tures. Indians and Eskimos needed the church's help in coping with new circumstances. Archbishop Jackson said also that perhaps Saskatchewan's three synods, with boundaries drawn up in an era of slower transportation, could be com- bined. He asked, "Would not one di- ocese, one synod, one admin- istrative office be more ac- ceptable for the needs of the Open Canada To More Jews, Palestinians TORONTO (CP) A report by the Canadian Council of Churches calls on Ottawa to ac- cept an increased number of Palestinians and Jews who want to make their home in Canada. The report, prepared by 19 men and women of seven Chris- tian denominations who recently made a three-week tour of the Middle East, also urges that the Canadian government influence the United States and Russia to "exert a moderating effect on their 'client states' in the Mid- dle East." The report, presented to the council recently, further rec- ommends that Israel take the initiative to achieve peace by ceasing its hard-line policy. 1202 3rd Avenue S. A.

DEPART TO SERVE In the form of worship there will be room for variety in ges- j lures and postures, in vest-1 ments and furnishings, in mu-1 sical instruments and styles. In particular, we will re- spect existing traditions with regard to the time and mode of baptism. We will express our new identity in union not by impos- ing strange forms on each other but seeking in our shared life to discover ways of wor- ship that will enable us most effectively to respond to God as He leads us on our way. Pre- sent forms will continue to exist so long as they meet the needs of worshippers. In time, as we grow togeth something new and better th. anything we have known se arately will begin to emerge our common worship. Within the provisions of Hie constitution, no one will be compelled to perform or sub- mit to actions that run con- trary to lu's convictions. All forms of ministry, wheth- er ordained or unordained, are cpen to both men and women. Bishops will be chief pastors of the new Church and agents of mission within the areas as- signed to them. In accepting and maintain- ing the historic episcopate, the new Church neither Implies, ex- cludes nor requires any theory of the episcopate that goes be- yond what is stated in the Plan of Union. CCC spending to aid draft dodgers TORONTO (CP) Rev. Maurice Wilkinson, associate secretary of the Canadian Coun- cil of Churches, said Monday is being spent in Can- ada this year by various aid groups to assist an estimated American "draft-age im- migrants." He said churches contributed most of which was given to the council for this pur- pose by churches in the United States. He was commenting on re- sorts published two weeks ago quoting him as saying is being spent this year by Church groups alone to aid American draft-age immi- grants.
