NURSERY PROVIDED 'We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church9 N1CEINE CKEED Anglican forecasts Rome reunion NORBRIDGE COMMUNITY CHURCH CANTERBURY, England (AP) Through four centuries, while they were divided and supposedly bitterly hostile, members of the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England kept contact, hoping and work- ing for eventual reunion. Sometimes the contacts were public- ly discussed but most of the time they were secret. Now the Holy See has opened its archives on this strange relationship to an English clergyman and his wife; collections of papers, reports, letters and diaries in England have been sifted and the story from the Reformation to the present day has been pulled together for the first time in a book published in January. The authors are the Archdeacon of Canterbury, Bernard Pawley, 63, and his wife Margaret, a historian. He said the project began in 1960 when Archbishop Geoffrey Fisher went from Canterbury to Rome, the first visit to a Pope by an Anglican primate since the Reformation. Archdeacon Pawley was appointed Anglican liaison officer with the Vatican Secretariat for Unity. "The dialogue is worldwide between Anglicans and Roman he said. "It embraces all the provinces of our church and I have toured the provinces, observing progress and reporting back to the archbishop." Archbishop Fisher's successor, Dr. Michael Ramsey, who retired in November, has forecast that reunion of the Christian churches might be achieved by the end of this century. What was the archdeacon's view? "I don't he said. "If the progress made in the last 25 years is continued in the next 25 they certainly will reunite. But the second and third stages of any long negotiations are more difficult than the first. "We are making immense progress but there is patchiness. Some of the most rapid advance, and the most un- likely, is in South America where there has been intense antagonism between Roman Catholics and Protestants until fairly recently." In 1964, a Vatican decree on church unity committed the Church of Rome to the union of Christendom by negotia- tion. "Since then, instances of co- operation between Anglicans and Roman Catholics have become so numerous that they have ceased to have news value." The initiative for the Pawleys' book, Rome and Canterbury Through Four Centuries, came from Mowbrays, the English publishers of religious books. The book took seven years to write. The archdeacon is a classical scholar in Greek and Roman history and philosophy. His wife studied history at Oxford. From 1961 to 1965 they lived in Rome. "I went to the Vatican Library and fished things out and my husband went through speaks better Mrs. Pawley said. The schism between Rome and Canterbury occurred in 1534 when King Henry VIII wanted his own jurisdiction over the church in England. Priests who refused to assent to royal supremacy were persecuted. When Henry's daughter, Mary Tudor, came to the throne in 1553 she restored Roman jurisdiction. The final breach was made in 1558 with the accession of Elizabeth I. Catholics and Protestants separately revere as martyrs the priests and others executed by successive sovereigns in those times. Because of the resentment among many people at the idea of maintaining contact with Rome, succeeding mon- archs had to keep these contacts secret, the archdeacon said. "Rome tried to win back England through negotiations with the Stewart monarchs. James I and Charles I were both reasonably good theologians and Vatican agents travelled clandestinely, reporting on the state of things and what the court thought. "All the great and thoughtful people accepted the principle that reunion was possible, that the break was only tem- porary and to be deplored. But the hope must have looked a bit forlorn at times. "Relations worsened during the years of Irish immigration into Britain in the last cntury because of thrfam- Rabbi queries 'conversion intent' By GEORGE CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) On a worldwide basis, the Roman Catholic Church is launching point-by-point effort to rid itself of insinuations against Jews and establish deepened, working bonds with Judaism. Although that faith gave birth to Christianity, mutual misimpressions have marred their attitudes towards each other for years, the Vatican says, adding that conditions now are Open for building a "new relationship." The spiritual bonds and historical links binding the church to Judaism render obligatory a better mutual un- derstanding and renewed mutual es- the Vatican said in guidelines toward that goal. A Jewish leader hailed the document generally, saying its implementation "would constitute nothing less than a revolution in esteem between Catholics and Jews everywhere." But he sharply deplored certain aspects of it. Rabbi Marc H. Tannenberg, co- secretary of the International Jewish Pilgrim pathway Committee for Interreligious Con- sultations, said the guidelines assert a "conversionary intention" toward Jews, implying that Judaism is in- adequate for them, and that God's covenant with them has ended. This is "totally unacceptable to the Jewish he said, adding that Judaism centres "on the critical conviction that God's covenant with Israel is everlasting" and not subject tc substitution. He said some Christian scholars both Protestant and Catholic, have developed a new theological view of Judaism as being permanently valid to Jews, with Jesus' work extending re- demption to others. That concept "provides the only basis for genuine mutual acceptance and mutual trust between Christians and Jews." Nevertheless, he welcomed the docu- ment generally, saying its condemna- tion of anti-Semitism takes on "heightened importance today" in light of international exploitation of anti-Semitism by "enemies of the Jewish people." The guidelines, issued by the Vatican's Christian unity secretariat, say in urging increased dialogue with Judaism that the church by its nature "must preach Jesus Christ to the world." "Lest the witness of Catholics to Jesus Christ should give offence to Jews, they must take care to live and spread their Christian faith while main- taining the strictest respect for religious the document adds. The document calls-for major Catholic initiatives to instill a more positive view of Judaism, emphasizing that Jesus, His apostles and first followers were Jews and that he used teaching methods of a rabbi. For example, the document notes that the Gospel of John often refers to "the Jews" as acting against Jesus, when the scriptural context shows the meaning actually is "the leaders of the Jews" or "adversaries of Jesus." Baptists dip 10 a year By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Fifth in a series Baptists are a gathered community of individuals who have had a personal ex- perience of conversion to Jesus Christ, and who find the denomination best expresses their understanding of New Testament life, practice and witness, minister Keith Churchill said recently in Lethbridge. Emphasizing conversion to Christ is more important than denominational membership, the pastor of First Baptist Church went on to explain the mechanics of active affilia- tion in the Lethbridge fellowship. "Conversion is not always a dramatic experience. Sometimes it is a culmination of Mr. Churchill said. Claiming an average of 10 believer baptisms a year, Mr. Churchill said a congregation survey of new member growth during the past five years reveals one-third were fresh conversions to Christ. The balance of growth originated with transfers of membership or came from persons growing up within a natural church family. Total physical immersion in water following a public profession of Christian faith and a period of visible change in personal lifestyle is a re- quirement of Baptist membership, Mr. Churchill explained. An eight-week discipleship class is conducted on an average of three times a year. Mr. Churchill leads separate sessions for junior high, senior high and adult inquir- ers. The congregation provides study books covering basic Christian doctrines and Baptist information free of charge. "Only in rare circum- stances is a child under 12 allowed to be Mr. Churchill said. "We recognize and encourage genuine Chris- tian faith in younger children but feel they should usually wait before accepting full responsibilities of the Chris- tian life." Baptists distinguish immer- sion as a symbol of belief and change which has already taken place, Mr. Churchill said. This viewpoint differs from covenant branches of the Christian church who practice sprinkling and infant dedication. SEALING "Immersion is a sealing, an affirmation of a called-out Mr. Churchill said. Defining his ministry as one of equiping the people of God to do the work of the church, Mr. Churchill spoke warmly of lay efforts within the First Baptist congregation. Five Koinonia groups meet on the second and fourth Sun- day evening each month for Bible study in private homes. Led by laymen, the groups rotate with each in turn meeting periodically at the church under the pastor's observation. Adult, couples and senior high age groups comprise membership. Through Koinonia groups, Sunday school, youth programs and friendship, of members, new contacts are drawn into the Baptist fold. At appropriate times, imirm are put in touch With UN minister for further spiritual direction. "After taking discipleship classes and reaching their own decision on baptism, the right hand of fellowship can be extended officially at a communion Mr. Churchill said. "We assume toward the hew Christian the respon- sibility of providing oppor- tunities to worship, to grow and share in the member's grief, joy and success; all part of a supportive community. The new member assumes the responsibility of supporting Christian .programs through involvement in activities with time, money and service." Tithing is preached on a scriptural basis, although no percentage stipulation is made. The amount of finances given are between the believer and God, Mr- Churchill-said. PRAYER MEETINGS Mid-week prayer meetings have been abandoned in favor of the Koinonia groups which attract an average total atten- dance of 80 persons. In ad- dition, a youth group Bible study and several informal home .fellowships function "During January each year we offer a concentrated Bible Mr. Churchill ex- plained. "Following an introduction during the Sun- day morning service, we study one complete book of the Bible Sunday through Wednesday night of the same week. This year we studied the Acts of the Apostles; in 1974, Colossians." Koinonia groups are con- tinuing a study of Luke until May. A new Bible portion will be selected for fall study. Evening worship on first and third Sundays gives op- portunity for missionary speakers, family night programs, films and other presentations. Sunday school is aimed at the total family, offering three adult groups in addition to children's classes. First Baptist is a member congregation of the Baptist Union of Western Canada. Bethany Baptist is affiliated with the North American Bap- tist General Alliance. Other city congregations include 'Bethel Baptist and the Independent Baptist church. Next: Pentecostal.
