In fact, according to Lethbridge Citadel officers Maj. Thelma Corney and Maj. Joan Pierce, the candidate will have to wait through a period of "radical change" in lifestyle before being accepted into the ranks of William Booth. "Confession of faith in Jesus Christ as personal saviour must be followed by a radical change of lifestyle before one becomes a Salva- tion Army Maj. Corney explained in an inter- view. Recruits receive encourage- ment from officers and members of the corps. After a period of time, seekers are asked but not pressured into considering Salvation Army membership. Children of Army families normally attend a young soldier's class offering denominational instruction .and Bible study. Later, the Ar- ticles of War are reviewed and considered for signature. Public profession of faith is made at a church swearing-in ceremony, after which can- didates may. wear uniform. Adult recruits coming in from a totally non-Christian environment receive similar instruction. Maj. Corney said she asks adult seekers to write down on paper their own expression of how they became a Christian believer. Persons wishing to transfer from another Christian denomination would need to respect the Army position on sacraments, Maj. Corney said. "The Salvation Army wouldn't deny a believer tak- ing part in sacraments in another church. However, I would give caution and recom- mend membership elsewhere if sacraments remain a big deal for some Maj. Corney said. The Manual of Salvationism published by the Army's United States branch says the Army "in no way criticizes, and certainly does not condemn the church for its practice but "considers sacraments are not necessary to salvation nor essential to spiritual progress. As stated in the seventh doctrine, we i believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation... it is feared that we might treat lightly, or even quite neglect one of these spiritual truths in an insistence upon a ceremony which is outward and visible. The religion of Jesus is intended to be a spiritual religion." Kneeling at the Mercy Seat before Army membership is not required, Maj. Corney said, although many frequent- ly find the place of prayer an opportunity for resolving spiritual needs. "Anyone can join; the rich, the poor, the cultured, the il- literate, the high, the low, the respectable, the Major Corney said. "People too often think the Army is just for down and outers." UNIFORM There are no instruction ex- penses for recruits Maj. Corney noted, although the new soldier is required to purchase his own uniform. This includes officers, the ti- tle given to Salvation Army lull-time clergy. Uniforms cost about (100 from trade supply head- quarters in Toronto. 'Some city women have made their own Sally Ann outfits for A bonnet costs optional for soldiers but required of female officers, and a derby, J12: New Salvationists are en- couraged .to provide their own home reference library con- taining a Bible, book of doctrine, Orders and Regulations for Soldiers, and a biography or history of Army work. Maj. Pierce es- timates suggested volumes would total around Founded as the Christian Mission, a helping arm for all churches, William Booth noticed new converts were ostracize when he marched them into his own Methodist fold. Later, the Army became a legal church entity in its own right. "Being a Salvationist should mean more than once-a- Sunday Maj. Corney said. "Fellowship is a means of grace. The early church met daily. Christians need frequent corporate worship and prayer."

EDMONTON (CP) Bishop Makary, who carhe- from the Soviet Union four years ago to serve, as Edmonton-based head of the Russian Orthodox Churches in Canada and the United States, left the city this week. The 35-year-old bishop will take on the job of representing the Moscow patriarchate at the World Council of Churches in Geneva. His successor is Most Rev. Job, also appointed by the Russian Orthodox Church leadership in Moscow. In an interview during the weekend, Bishop Makary es- timated he has travelled 000 miles throughout Canada and the United States, con- ducting services and speaking to groups and individuals. "Living here was enjoyable and very he said. "I found the people quite the same as in the Soviet Union. I found them open-hearted and real human beings." His job in Geneva will be to promote brotherhood between churches and to expound the policy of the Russian Orthodox Church, he said.

"It is the duty of Christians to help suffering people in the world. That kind of help is a help to Christianity." However, the Russian Orthodox Church has not taken a stand on the case of Valentyn Moroz, the Ukrai- nian historian imprisoned in the U.S.S.R. RELIGIOUS BODY "You must understand that the church in the Soviet Union is trying to function as a religious body, not as a political the Bishop said. "Our task is to spread the gospel." Bishop Makary said he does not know yet what position his church will take on the case of Baptist minister Georgij Vins, currently on trial in -the U.S.S.R., and whether he will support a WCC move to send a legal observer to the trial. The bishop said he was "afraid he (Vins) was not just involved in church policy but in politics as well."

A public prayer meeting is held Thursday at p.m.; small prayer groups meet twice a month before evening services and several home fellowships operate at different times. It is preferred Salvation Army families attend corps programs, Maj. Corney said. Regular activities here include Home League for women, Pounds Down, corps cadets, floor hockey, Brow- nies, Guides, Rangers, Beavers, Cubs and Sea Scouts. To be a commissioned member of the band or songsters, one must be at least a junior soldier. Non-members are sometimes invited to par- ticipate in musical groups or preach, but need approval from the officers beforehand. Maj. Corney said she tries to emphasize the necessity oi learning first about the Chris- tian way, then serving. "I feel too many Salvationists have the cart before the Maj. Corney-said. "They work before they worship. There should be a learning time because it is more important to be than do." Salvationist fathers are en- couraged to provide spiritual leadership at home. In their absence or reluctance to do so, Christian mothers receive support for insisting on grace before meals and family devotions. During the past year, Maj. Pierce reports, there have been 14 new Christians from a cross-section of age groups recorded through Lethbridge Citadel ministry. Next: Baptists.
