Pickford EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH PARISHIONERS RETURN FUNDS AFTER PARABLE TEST Toronto 'talents' multiply TORONTO (CP) A Bible parable and a minister's faith have resulted in a United Church of Canada congrega- tion bringing back profits of more than four times the size of its investments. Early last December, Rev. Ben Hodder handed out in crisp, new bills to his Kew Street United Church congregation and asked the churchgoers to invest the funds. On Sunday, the congrega- tion, which filled the church to its 650-seat capacity, gave the minister with the promise of more profits to come. "It's Rev. Hod- der said in an interview. "The idea got away beyond the dol- lars-and-cents was a real experience." Rev. Hodder said his in- spiration was a parable in which a man entrusted eight monetary unit comparable to his servants before departing on a journey. He was given 15 talents on his return. The minister said the con- gregation used his money for concerts, bazaars and pur- materials to produce goods'for sale. He said some of the profits may be used to sponsor similar programs in other churches. Pilgrim pathway United Church membership hinges on internal offspring By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Second in a series United Church of Canada recruits come mostly from internal families, reports Bill Calderwood, assistant minister at Southminster United Church. For the seeker requesting membership, a series of com- municant classes are con- ducted eaCh year prior to Palm Sunday, Mr. Calderwood explained in an interview: Basic tenets of Christianity and a study of United Church structure and history are provided in the six to eight week course. No fee is charg- ed and candidates should be 14 years or older, Mr. Calderwood added. Currently, Southminster congregation records most of its new members from among existing church families. Sometimes t mother re- questing infant baptism will decide to join the church at the same time, thus hoping to inspire and share in the spiritual upbringing of her child. Upon completion of com- municant classes, a candidate may be confirmed provided he has been previously baptized. If' not, the dual ritual is per- formed. Some United Church ministers will perform im- mersion on teen-age or adult candidates, although sprinkl- ing is the normal practice. After being publicly welcomed into the church, no pressure is placed on members, Mr. Calderwood said. However, there is en- couragement given to par- ticipate in regular worship, youth or adult interest groups and the Christian program. Session elder is the only lay position in the denomination requiring United Church memtersuip, Mr. Calderwood explained. Youth group and other organization leaders need not be members, but preferably are known per- sonally by some members of the congregation who can en- dorse character qualities. When a United Church members fails to attend regular worship and fails to forward monetary support, paring of the church roll may become necessary. "Sometimes we make an interesting Mr. Calderwood said. "One senior lady regularly sends in her financial gifts but rarely attends services. Upon visiting her, I discovered she had a very real ministry of prayer. Although crippled, she keeps well informed regarding missionaries in various parts of and prays for them all each day." Southminster congregation has just re-introduced com- munion notice cards which are circulated prior to the quarterly sacrament. "One has to understand our explained Rev. Ken Morris, senior clergyman at Southminster. "It original- .ly was a carryover from Presbyterians who came together with Methodists in the Plan of Union. Once it meant only members, in good standing received a commu- nion card. We are reviving the card more as a courtesy reminder." During 1973, the most re- cent statistics available, some 55 persons other'than transfers joined the United Church of Canada in Lethbridge, Mr. Morris said. There are four United congregations within city boundaries Southminster, McKillop, First United and the Japanese United Church. Next: Presbyterians.
