Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _. fcrtvrfiy. Nbruary 10, 1971 THI UTTHMIDGI HERALD 3 World churches support justice and not militancy St. Andrew's By DAVID POLING NAIROBI, Kenya (NBA) When the member churches gathered for the Central Com- mittee meeting of the World Council of Churches at Addis Ababa (Jan. 10-20) they ex- pected debate and even sharp dissension over the report on racism. But little did any of the 239 representatives antici- pate the quick reaction of poli- ical forces that exploded so luddenly after their sessions were completed. By now the general public, and especially the Christian community, is aware that the World Council gave unanimous support to a special fund to as- sirst anti-racist organizations in their struggle for freedom and justice. Council leaders hope to raise more than for those groups around the world mostly in Africa who will combat white racism. The provision Is that none of the cash will go to "military pur although CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE SALVATION HEALING MIRACLES Pastor: Riv. T. W. Roycroft Corner 5th Ave. and 13th St. S.

Liberation forces promptly kyjacked an Etlu'opian Air- ines plane to Lybia, where hey have been taken into cus- ody. Emperor Haile Selassie, lost to the council, was under train to support the progres- sive step against racism, while underground groups were tealing his jets and blowing up his trains. The position taken by the World Council had an immedi- ate effect in South Africa. The story had barely been set in ype before the secret police lad arrested the Anglican Dean of Johannesburg, the lev. G.

THURSDAY, FEB. 25 8 p.m. Gilbert Paterson Jr. High School Prime Minister John Vorster, who once made the handsome claim that God was on the side of South Africa. Said the cleric: "God is not on the side of the National Party or any oth- er party. What really matters is whether the National Party is on His side." What may have especially annoyed Johannesburg was the aggressive pledge made by the World Council at Addis Ababa that its member churches, "in- vestigate and analyze the mili- tary, political, industrial and financial systems in the per- petuation of racism and racial discrimination." Churches were also asked to clean up their own backyard, check their investment prac- tices, look at their employ- ment, training, and promotion schedules and evaluate their property management to see if any of these activities contri- bute indirectly to racism. All of this means one thing, well- stated by the Daily Nation in Nairobi: "The Church is no longer the handmaid of col- onialism." And if we read the signs well, neither shall it be a hand- maiden of militarism. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Pastor and author speaks here Feb. 25 Haralan Popov, reportedly one of the most outstanding Christian leaders to have emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, will speak in Leth- sridge Thursday, Feb. 25, at 8 p.m. in Gilbert Paterson Junior High School. He is a Mstor, author, Bible scholar and linguist. After a youth of atheism, he turned to God and gave his ife to God's service and soon became pastor of the largest Protestant church in Bulgaria. As one of the nation's leading clergymen and most widely- known Christian leaders, Hara- lan Popov came to the atten- tion of the communist authori- ties When they seized power in Bulgaria in 1948. He was arrested in July 1948, and held for seven months under the most inhuman condi- tions. He was sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment, suffer- ing indescribable indignities, but was released after 13 years and banned from ever preach- ing again. Undaunted, he con? ducted sec r e t underground meetings but fearing re arresl and through the intervention oi he Swedish government he was allowed to rejoin his fam- ly in Sweden. His wife is Swedish subject. Now, from his "base" in the ree world, Rev. Popov is vast- y increasing his ministry to he peoples of Bulgaria and eleven other communist ands around the world as overseas director of the mis- sionary organization, Under- jround Evangelism.
