Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHMIDOC, ALtifiTA, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, IM. PAOt FIVE The man, who thinks he can't afford to be veil dressed, certainly ought to find out the prices for Progress Brand Sold and Guaranteed by McKELVIE McGUIRE CHURCH UNION WITHIN REA Principal Patrick, Of Winnipeg, Talks Of the Progress So Far Made In the Effort To Unite Three Churches (Toronto Globe.) Principal Patrick, of Ma-nitoba Col- lege, Winnipeg, one of the leaders in the movement for the organic union cf the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational Churches in Canada; was seen last night, before he left for his home, by a representative of the Globe, who obtained.his views on the prospects for the proposed union and the-probable procedure in bringing it about. As is, well known, Dr. Patrick was in at the very beginning of the movement in its present form. He nade an address before the General Conference of the Methodist Church at Winnipeg as representative of the .Presbyterian General Assembly, and frankly advocated the union of the two .Churches. His speech made a profound impression, so much so that .the General Conference appointed a committee to confer ,with_similar com mittees from other Churches. Once started, the movement took form arid gathered, force, until last week a joint committee representing Canadian Presbyterianism, Methodism and Con- gregationalism, after four years .of investigation and deliberation, agreed upon a basis.of union. Joint Committee Confident. "Beyond my most sanguine expecta- said Principal Patrick, in an- swer to a question as to the success of the committee's work. "From the very beginning there limited confidence in has been un- one another's character and motives, and the one desire of all the representatives has been for union, if such were found to be practicable. This confidence has strengthened year, by year. So far as the joint committee, composed of as I strong, as intelligent, and as .represen- tative men. as (these three great Churches contain, union is already consummated. They are one in mind and heart and Asked as to the basis of union agreed upon by the committee and to be reported to the governing. bodies of the three Churches, Dr. Patrick said that it contains a system of doc- trine, a system of polity, a system of administration, regulations for the ministry, and legal arrangements to give effect to union in the event of its adoption. Doctrinal Statement Simple. "The statement of he continued, "has been very carefully considered for several years, and its nineteen articles embody the faith common to evangelical .Christianity- It is clear, succinct, ancLin popular form. "Personally I consider it a very great gain to have had the creed of the Church revised under such favor- able conditions. A revision would have been called for sooner or later in all the Churches, but under- no other conditions could, .such adequate prominence be given to fipidamenta! articles and the subsidiary -doctrines be given their proper place. For myself, I believe we have accomplish- ed in this way what, would -have cost the several Churches 'working separ- ately years of controversy with less satisfactory results. The articles of the creed as they now stand in thi statement of doctrine are cordially accepted by men of .widely differen types and training. They grow ou of the past, and they have the future in view. They are positive, not nega live. Their and spring is the Gospel itself, not any system of .theo- logy or of philosophy. They, owe their substance and form to the in- terpjptation of Christian experience as reflected in the New Testiarnent and in the history of the Church. this reason I believe they will com- mand the attention and retain hold on the conviction of Christian ple. Oar aim was not to construct a system of doctrine, but to state .what is most surely believed in the Churches of evangelical Christen- Arminitnitm and Calvinism fUcbn- cll.d. In reply to a question as to the prospects of the doctrinal statement being generally accepted in the nego- tiating Churches, Principal Patrick "I recall one instance. The late Dr. John Potts was for years an op- ponent of union. At least he regard- ed it as impossible. He could not see how the doctrinal systems of the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches could be harmonized. 'I desire he said to me one day, 'but I am an Arrainian, you are a Calvinist. Sow can our views be Not long before he died he meeting of the union committee at which the proposed doctrinal state- ment was considered. At the close he rose and said his doubts had disap- peared, that union on such a basis of doctrine would be not only desirable but a great gain, and that he would gladly co-operate with his brethren rom the other Churches to make uch a union in Canada an accom- >lished fact. His case is similar. to lany others of men of strong convic- ions and open minds whom I havej Candidates for the Ministry. On the question of creed subscrip- .011 the-principal explained that ad- erence to a formal creed is required nly of ministers and -never of mem- bers. "The amplest provision is made not only for the thorough train- ing of candidates for the ministry, but also for their examination at the time of licensure and ordination. "The matter of creed-subscription in all the Churches is- .at present rather unsat- isfactory. The unanimous decision of the union committee is for a care- ful private examination of candidates as to their views on the creed of their Church, affording all .needed oppor- tunity for explanations and.various forms of statement, and .then the pub-j lie assent would .deal with a man's! personal relation to Christ, his accept- ance of evangelical doctrine, his mo- tives in entering" the ministry, and his loyalty to the Church and its mission. I consider this solution very milch better than -what we now have in the .Presbyterian Church.

Turning to .matters of Church poli- ty, Dr. Patrick said the committee sought for a combination of what best in the systems of the three Churches, having in view the object of leaving no congregation without a minister, .without a congregation. "The idea final act of union would take place." A People's Question Now. Questioned as to .the outlook, Dr. Patrick said that the official bodies and the membership of the Churches now have the necessary data before them. Hitherto their attitude has been one of expectancy, awaiting the of the permanent pastorate is accept- ed as normal, and the principle of itineracy .is'included to meet condi- tions as they may arise. No pastor- ate will be disturbed except at the request of either minister or congre- gation, and desired changes will be effected under proper regulations. The right to call is secured to all congregations, and the rights of .all members in each congregation are fairly safeguarded. The office of. the I eldership, as historically bound up in Presbyterianism, will be retained under some name, and has been most :ordially accepted by both Method- ists and Congregationalists. Names Suggested. "No. the question of a nnrno not seriously discussed. My own is that this should be left open until the very day of union, be- adopted after the union has been effected. Names are suggested and will be presented for the widest con- sideration. Speaking from memory I may mention United Church in 'The United Re- formed Church in 'The Unit- ed Evangelical Church in The United Church: Congregational- The name for the Church, like the names for its various courts, is not a vital ques- tion. It is important, but not of first importance." Steps Yet to be Taken. The next step in the union proce- dure, Principal Patrick explained, will be the reporting of this basis of union to the supreme courts of the Churches. "It will be reported to the General Assembly in Hamilton in June next, and the Assembly will be askod to approve of the commit- tee's work and to take the necessary steps to inform the Church of the conclusions reached and to commend the union proposal for acpeptance. Then the question wQuld come be- fore the Assembly of 1910 for formal and official aetio.n, when jt would be sent down to presbyteries under thej Harrier Act, and probably also committee's findings. it now comes a people's question, and re- sponsibility for intelligent action will be pressed upon the laymen of the Churches. "Oh, yes, the laymen are interest- said Dr. Patrick with emphasis. "Their splendid co-operation in the missionary movement has prepared the way, and now they "will take ,an interest in preventing all unneces- sary overlapping and all waste of men and means in maintaining two or three churches where one would serve. And the young men are in- terested, for the prospect of an ade- quate field 'for their life work will make the ministry more attractive. The West ror Union. "I cannot speak for the East nor for the farthest West, but for Mani- toba and Saskatchewan I can, say with confidence that union will, be carriedj by an overwhelming majority. Min- isters and laymen alike are favorable and are eager. It is a great move- added the principal, survey- ing the whole .theme. "It's greatness and its significance grow upon one. Not since Confederation has any movement oi equal magnitude and importance commanded the consid- eration of the people of Canada. For national and for religious reasons .1 support it.

"As a Presbyterian 1 feel bound to stand for union with all other Christ- ians unless compelled by conscience to" remain apart. Such compulsion of conscience cannot be, in view of the findings of the union committee. A.s a consistent Presbytorian I regard union a duty binding on my con- science.
