Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 1, 1975 Flinty integrity, cautious wit color Canterbury primate Herald London Bureau LONDON The steely gaze, rimless spectacles and tight lips of Donald Coggan were a bit of a shock to Anglicans when they first saw the man who was to be the next Archbishop of Canter- bury. There was a considerable outward difference from the rotund, white haired, genial Michael Ramsey with the friendly, quivering eyebrows, and the look of a jolly medieval monk who might have stepped out of Sherwood Forest. Donald Coggan, who as Archbishop of York was primate of England and who as Archbishop of Canterbury now becomes primate of all England, seemed in his first television appearances to be a prim and stuffy schoolmaster. After several months of talking about his new job he has relaxed into a figure of wisdom and broad- mindedness that has charmed his large, if inattentive, flock. This is fortunate, because the established Church of England, set up after Henry the Eight broke with Rome and styled himself "supreme head of' the Church of England" in 1534, is faced widespread tip service but distressing lack of Sunday attendance. The new archbishop dis- plays a flinty integrity, cautious wit and restrained common sense. He is widely educated but plays his erudition cards close to his chest. Among the maze of univer- sities at which he has studied and taught is a stint from 1937 to 1944 as professor of New Testament at Wycliffe College, Toronto, where he became a Bachelor of Divinity Church Chuckles by CARTWRIGHT CHAS. "1 saw Him once on a color set. His sermons seem even more powerful when he lurns a livid DONALD COGGAN in 1941 and an honorary Doc- tor of Divinity 1944. The New Testament remains important to him as he begins to give leadership to 300 bishops around the world. There has been much philosophical debate about Dr. Cogan's views on the Ten Commandments since it became known he was to move from York to Canter- bury. In a recent interview he said: "On the day of my ap- pointment I said there was a lot to be said for the Ten Com- mandments and I have been haunted by these com- mandments ever since. "1 think they're very impor- tant and they are, of course, the basis of our English law. "But I want the gospel and its good news to the forefront." Discussing present day sexual attitudes he said: "In Edwardian days the im- morality, if you want to call it that, was underground. Today we are more open, for in- stance, in our sexual ethics. Today there is a sexual looseness but there is also a greater concern about world needs than in my day." On marriage, he felt it to be "terribly important" for the church to maintain the gospel standard of "one man, one but added: "I think the church has to bear its witness to that solidly, but at the same time with the utmost possible com- passion for those who have found it impossible to main- tain that standard and whose marriage has broken." He also found it surprising "how many people are blind to apartheid or the condoning of women having a second- rate position in society." "The New Testament was written in a time of slavery but people did not seem to grasp its inner message at the time, which logically would led to the ending of the social conditions which produced the slavery." Dr. Coggan becomes 101st Archbishop of Canterbury since 597 AD, when the first incumbent was a Roman mis- sionary called St. Augustine. But instead of taking on the job at 65 he might have had it 15 years ago, when he was one of those favored by the retir- ing archbishop, Dr. Fisher. In the mysterious fashion of selections of Archibishops of Canterbury, Prime Minister Harold MacmiUan actually chose Hamsey and Dr. Coggan, who was then Bishop of Bradford, was instead promoted to Archbishop of York. There is much discontent among a wide range of Anglican clergymen and bishops about the elitist selec- tion method, in which the prime minister o! the day, acting as adviser to the sovereign, make a discreet, old boy network sounding with the help of a special secretary at Ten Downing Street, and comes up with the new name. Anglican clergy and bishops have no direct part in the process. It has been calculated that throughout Britain the atten- dance figures on Sunday are an average 2% million for Anglicans and two million for Roman Catholics.

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (CP) The search for religion is as varied as man, but perhaps nowhere more so than in Rhodesia, where new African churches often mix Christian and pagan rituals. Dr. Helen tours area A former Fort Macleod resident, Dr. Helen Huston will present a report on medical mission work in Nepal here during the next week. Speaking 11 a.m. Sunday in McKillop United and 7 p.m. at First Baptist, Dr. Huston will also address Southern Alberta Christians at the following centres through next Friday Fort Macleod, Vauxhall, Bow Island, Southminster UCW and Milk River, The South Alberta presbytery committee on world outreach, under leadership of Rev. Albert. Baldeo, Coaldale United Church, has arranged the tour. A graduate of the Universi- ty of Alberta, Dr. Huston interned at Edmonton and Vancouver before going to In- dia as a medical missionary in 1953. She has served with the United Mission to Nepal since 1955. The Nepal mission conducts agricultural and education programs in addition to medical services. There are many so-called independent African churches often having such picturesque names as the Amapostolo (The Apostles) and the Amaprofiti (The Most of these movements have two things in common: They are purely African and they meet in the open air, in an amphitheatre of boulders or merely under a large tree in the bush. One church is known as The Donkey Church and a donkey is present at all services. When it brays it's a sign for the congregation to pray. Another church caters specifically to divorcees. Most of these cults in- corporate ancient primitive beliefs in their ritual. A hill which has deep tribal significance as an ancestral shrine, for example, will be called The Mount of Olives. These churches take com- munity worship to the masses. Years ago, before towns such as Salisbury and Bulawayo engulfed the African, he would, when worried or feel the need to appease the family spirits and accordingly ap- proach the family elders. This personal religion was something close to the family continuity of all ancestors dwelling in the rafters in the main house of the kraal. The separatist churches to- day have largely replaced the, need for family worship by Africans, who are not com- mitted to a specific, church or who, through geographical circumstances, are unable to attend the church to which they nominally belong.
