It was left to individual con- gregations whether they would participate. Some did not get the message. Said Rev. James W.

It is a program which prepares Christians to witness effectively to Jewish Some Jews shrugged off what they referred to as an- other Christian but Most Rev. E.

There hs been no tangible evidence of spiritual results or more co-operation among city the minister of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd said. He was com- menting on a year-long evangelistic thrust supported here by 14 congregations.

Helmut Poschwatta. pastor at Bethany expressed disappointment after a lack of response from pther par- ticipating congregations when his group endeavored to hold a Key 73 rally. Only late in the year did some laymen realize a regular monthly effort to conduct Key 73 rallies and programs in different churches was being made. Communication among sponsoring groups did not always convey when and where a Key 73 program was scheduled. Another campaign might do better there Mr. Poschwatta noting this year's effort seems to be a first time for united evangelistic work in Lethbridge. Harold minister of the Evangelical Free finds his own denominational programs are still more rewarding. is always profitable to meet with other church Mr. Josl said ex- plaining his congregation helped distribute Bibles and attended public rallies. First Baptist Church also churches beneficial. Minister Keith Churchill said literature distribution door-to-door was a first time experience for most of his congregation. The Baptists studied the Gospel of Luke booklet as a regular Sun- day evening series throughout the and found Key 73 to be an impetus for other evangelistic work in the com- munity. Lakeview Mennonite leader Henry Unrau reports Bible distribtuion was about as much as his group got in- volved. He said churches get out of campaigns like Key 73 as much as they put in. Pentecostal preacher Mel Israelson pondered why no altar calls for persons seeking spiritual counsel were made at public rallies. Charisma Christian Book Store manager Keith Hazell expressed some disappoint- ment over literature. Some 000 copies of the Key 73 entitled Touched by Ihe remain on his shelves. The books were ordered in anticipation of local but most congregations chose to make their purchase elsewhere. God's glory focused on one bright spot. Lethbridge Church of the Nazarene minister Robert Deasley attributes several ad- ditions to his congregation to Key 73 efforts.
