Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IFIHMIDGt HERALD Friday, February 5, 1971 United Church faced reality NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) The United Church of Canada faced up squarely, if reluc- tantly, to reality and the times. It gave qualified approval io le- galized abortion. It stipulated three conditions: "In certain medical, social and economic circumstances." There was a fourth, not spelled out but implicit in its resolution: No abortion on de- mand. Never before had a Christian church gone so far in express- ing itself affirmatively on the theological and moral issue: Has a woman the right not to bear her unwanted child? The church said a doctor approves. In Airing its stand, the United Church also said it recognized that the unborn child has a right to be wanted. A TOUGH ONE Of the issues that came up at the 24th general council of the United Church, and there were many, that of legalized abortion was the hardest to face. A cleri- cal commissioner, strongly op- posed to abortion, said hs ap- i proved the decision after an i ''agonizing night." 1 The 24th meeting of the gen- eral council ended Tuesday as its moderator, Rt. Rev. Arthur B. Moore, in his closing ad- i dress, expressed hope for the church of "the future.

Mc- Clure, only layman elected to the highest position in the church, last Tuesday. The general council meeting was held at the same time as the 25th general synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, with which denomination the United Church has been consi- dering union for 27 years. ALMOST THEME That was almost a theme for the 1971 meeting. Union of the two largest non-Roman Catholic churches in Canada is being dis- cussed and the draft of a pro- posed plan of union was put be- fore tie two bodies at their meetings here. No decisions were taken and none will be until the 1972 biennial meetings of the two then there probably will be a referendum before the issue is resolved. The meetings were historic in that for the first time the gen- eral council and general synod took communion together. One service was according to the Anglican was served at the communion table. The United Church served grape juice. The two courts agreed on one common hymn book. There was not a little dissent but a hymn book of about 500 hymns was approved for distri- for the church to face, is the population explosion. The gen- eral council accepted a report from its board of evangelism and social service which said mankind is facing a crisis and which said that contraception not only is essential but is a Christian duty. But it went on to say that abortion is not the way to solve that problem. It was the lesser of two evils. LISTS PRIORITIES The general council made up a list of priorities of concern: justice, peace, poverty, popula- tion growth, hunger, pollution, family life. These were issues to he faced despite diminishing membership and deelininE fi- nances. The financial health of the United Church was reported by the finance departmsnt as not well. It is running at a deficit and the million stabilization fund, set up 25 years ago to meet contingencies, would1 be dipped into to the extent of this year. And membership, though fig- ures were not available, is de- clining. Dr. Moore touched upon Brotherhood week marking urged by CCCJ TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian Council of Christians and Jews Thursday issued state- ments from Prime Minister Trudeau and provincial pre- miers urging Canadians to mark Brotherhood Week Feb, 14-21. The week is sponsored each year by the council as a time for reflection on social change, prejudice and discrimination. Mr. Trudeau said: "Across the barriers of lan- guage, race, creed and national- ity the ideal of a single human family must prevail, if we are to survive. I join the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews iff proclaiming this idea. We must all learn to practise it." button to both this spring. denominations BRAINY CHILD Alton- sito U'ueshner Portugal is four years old and has, ac- cording to his father, an IQ of 310!
