Sponsored by the University of Calgary branch of the Lutheran Student Movement, the non denominational conference is intended as a learning experience.

Among the inner city locations they'll visit will be the single men's and women's hostels, the Salvation Army, the Indian v Friendship Centre, high-rise apartments and office buildings, city hall and the of- fices of city politicians, down- town hotels and bars, to name just a few. Participants will also live in an inner city church throughout the conference and will on occasion sit down to meals with inner city residents. "We want conference par- ticipants to see how people are helping other people in the city, but also how much more could be says Carl Onofrio, a U of C chaplain who Church Chuckles in- rARTWimnr 1283 and please don't let Santa's sleigh get hi- jacked to Cuba, Lethbridge Christian Reformed Church Invites You to listen to the Back to God Hour every Sunday night at p.m. over CHEC Radio.

Resource persons for dis- cussion sessions will be two Calgarians deeply involved in inner city ministry, Rev. James Chell, pastor of First Lutheran Church, and Rev. James Bragan, associate pastor of Knox'United Church. Inner city issues to be ex- amined will include: the sacr- fice of landmarks and neighborhoods for traffic and commercial development, and the resultant displace- ment of residents; the lack of facilities "on a human scale" within the city.core; the isola- tion of many of the people liv- ing in the inner-city. "The churches in general have fled to the suburbs, and their support is drawn mainly from suburban says Chaplain Onofrio. "There is a lack of awareness within our churches of what is happening in the inner city and what potential problems could develop there, and we hope conference participants will come to realize it. "We hope they'll see that it's important for the church to return to the inner city to influence what is going on Chaplain Onofrio said. It is also hoped the coming meeting will be a model for future conferences devoted to looking at the church's in- volvement in inner city life. Persons from as far away as Vancouver, Edmonton and Regina are expected to attend this regional meeting of the Lutheran Student Movement. Further information about the conference may be obtain- ed from First Lutheran Church, 266-5988, or chaplain Carl Onofrio, U of C Chaplains' Association, 284- 5451.

A. Boone of Mars View Christian Church said members of the congregation obtained a part-time job for the teen-ager and are collecting clothing for him. A burglar who entered the church Saturday and again Sunday night broke into boxes of canned goods collected for Christmas relief. He ate, brushed his teeth with tooth- paste taken from a box and then bathed in the baptistry. After that, he dressed himself with new clothes from the mission packages and had another snack on bread and grape juice the church uses in communion services. After the second break-in the congregation found a note that said: "Dear Friends, I'm sorry if I inconvenienced you in any way and that I had to enter the church the way I did. I'm desperate and hungry with nothing to eat and no place to sleep. Please forgive me, Joe. P.S., May God bless you all." Mr. Boone in turn left a note for the intruder which said: "Dear Joe. We're very much concerned and want to help you. No one is mad that you broke in. If you come again, please call us at the following number.
