William Phipps of Trinity United Church said older churches are dark and large, offering lots of places to hide. To reduce thefts and vandalism in the sanctuary, Trinity built a chapel for 90 persons, as large as most rural churches, open to the public from 9 a.m. to p.m. Since July, there was only one break-in when someone took a candle, Mr. Phipps said. But Rev. John Furry of Walmer Road Baptist Church said its sanctuary doors are generally locked, the church has a buzzer system and a public announcement system to identify callers.

Drop-in centres popular Drop-in centres for Canada Winter Games athletes have helped bring together Lethbridge faith groups, a city clergyman reported this week. "The Games have provided a good ecumenical venture because many different faith groups were Rev. Keith Churchill, chairman of the co-ordinating committee said. Drop-in centres operated from 10 a.m. to midnight at First Baptist and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, south of the athletes village, were ex- tremely well attended, Mr. Churchill said. Cardinal virtues A steady stream passed through First Baptist .were. The Bridge offered a graffiti board for scribblers, recreational table tennis, burlap for making team banners, a pinball machine, souvenir photography of visiting athletes and a light refreshment service. At Chimo in St. Andrew's, standing room crowds attend- ed evening entertainment which included folk singing, musicians Plink and Plunk on piano and banjo, Nova Scotia jazz and a classical guitarist Dale Ketcheson. "We've had no problems with discipline or Mr. Churchill observed, adding warm appreciation for the efforts of Bill Roycroft, drop-in centre co-ordihator. Faith groups also made available emergency billet space in private homes and counselling services at the Games medical centre. Mr. Churchill anticipates the budget set by faith groups will now be met since ad- ditional revenue has come in during the Games. Cross stolen JUSTICE By DAVID POLING NEA Religion Writer The ancient Hebrew Psalmist gives us some clues to the many dimensions of justice when he wrote: "Give the king thy justice, 0 God, and thy righteousness to the royal son! May he judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with (Psalm 72, R.S.V.) How interesting it is that the seven cardinal virtues did not include or specifically identify freedom and truth. Apparently these were realities taken for granted, like gravity. These were the basic conditions of created order; justice emerges as the primary enforcer of the un- seen verities. The classical scholars and the Hebrew prophets quickly realized that the loss of freedom and truth meant the failure of a just society. Over and over again the Old Testament cries for the exer- cise of justice, particularly for the poor. Justice is the only way that the weak, powerless and dis- inherited can survive in this turbulent world. The presence of justice protects the widow, the orphan, the refugee, the ged. Justice is a bridge between church and state, the sanc- tuary and 'the court. H holds an inherent awareness of moral consequence, for it is a reflection of the axiom that all true religion begins in mystery and ends in politics. Justice is truth in action. Thales, the Greek philosopher, looked to the social and economic definition of this virtue when he wrote: "If there is neither excessive wealth nor immoderate poverty in a nation, then justice may be said to prevail." If we accept his judgment, then our world, in the present arrangement of food, shelter and health care, presents a living theatre of in- justice. Albert Camus way right when he said: "Our task as men is to find the few prin- ciples that will calm the in- finite anguish of free souls. We must mend what has been torn apart, make justice im- aginable again in a world so obviously unjust, give hap- piness a meaning once more lo people poisoned by the mis- ery of the century." Justice is the beginning of the lull life. It was the signal for the coming of Christ, first through the powerful social preaching of John the Baptist. Then, the appearance of Jesus who said: "The poor have the good news preached to them to set at liberty those who are oppressed No wonder that Aristotle said that justice was brighter than the stars. Next: Fortitude HAMILTON, Bermuda (Reuter) Police are investigating the reported theft of one of Bermuda's priceless gold .cross with five emerald'in- sets that was found in a sunken 16th-century Spanish vessel. Diver Teddy Tucker, who discovered the cross along with other gold and jewelry pieces about 15 years ago, reported to police that a take had been substituted for the real one. -'the Herald- Religion Iron Springs ready for prayer IRON SPRINGS (HNS) The Iron Springs Christian Reformed Church will host an interdenominational World Day of Prayer service at p.m. March 7. A social hour will follow, in the church. Mission reminder at Cardston CARDSTON (HNS) Approximately people were present to hear a missionary message at the recent Cardston LDS quarterly conference. President. Fred Spackman said the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is a missionary church. It teaches two fun- damental truths, the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ and the restoration of His gospel. He told members that everyone can be a missionary through friendship and example. Other speakers were Robert Low, Robert Lawless and Bon- nie Perrett. President Ray Beckam of the Alberta Saskatchewan Mission also spoke. Teddy Brewerton, regional representative of the Council of the Twelve Apostles based in Calgary shared experiences he had while serving in the South America mission. 'Problem' leaves Bible school HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) "Every man in the world is sin- ful, some more than says Rev. Lee Stanford, who became president of Florida Bible College after his father resigned and admitted he was having an affair with a student. "Men fail. The Bible says Rev. Stanford, 34. "There was a problem at the college, and the problem left." His father, Dr. Ray Stanford, rocked the college he founded 12 years ago by running off last month with a 20-year-old coed. "I look for only positive things to come from my father's says the son. "Certainly the college has a clean record'. Our work here is based on on one person." The elder Stanford, 58, gave the reasons for leaving the student school in this South Florida city in a taped message. The message was played to an assembly Jan. 26, the day after his disappearance. The faculty unanimously elected Rev. Stanford to assume his father's role as leader of the school, one of the largest of its kind in'the United States. Bishop's reputation defended PARIS (Reuter) The French Roman Catholic Church today absolved from moral guilt a bishop who died last month in a room in a Paris hotel used by prostitutes. After a month-long inquiry into the death of 57-year-old Msgr. Roger Tort of Montauban, the episcopate acknowledged that it cannot account for all his movements on the night he died, but said the facts do not bear out any shameful allegation. Bishop Tort arrived here from Montauban on a church mis- sion Jan. 12 and took a room at the Catholic Aid Society head- quarters, an episcopate communique said. He went out on the evening of Jan. 16 saying he planned to meet a wartime friend. The communique said there is evidence showing that the bishop saddendly fell ill and sought help around 11 p.m. in a hotel in the Rue de Ponceau, a notorious Paris red light district. "A few minutes later he died suddenly in a room put at his disposal. A doctor was called urgently but he could only conirm the death. These are the facts."
