S - THI ICTHBRIDGC HIRAID - Saturday, January 9, 1971 Jew and Arab neighbors co-exist at Armageddon By MICHAEL ARKUS ARMAGEDDON, Israel (Renter) - Jew and Arab are living harmoniously at Armageddon where biblical tradition says the forces of good and evil will fight the last great battle at the end of time. Despite the apparently unending Middle East conflict, this hill-rimmed cultivated plain basking in sunlight seems the antithesis of the final war of the world which Armageddon symbolizes. Arab villages and Israeli kibbutzim coexist side by-side, and both Jew and Arab report neighborly relations free from tension, despite the proximity of Israel's uneasy border with Jordan. From time immemorial the town of Megiddo, from which the name of Armageddon (in Hebrew Har Megiddo-the Mount of Megiddo) is derived, and the surrounding Vale of Jezreel in northern Israel, have been a battleground for the empires of the Middle-East. SOLOMON SITE It was here that the Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmosis in, in the year 1478 BC, waged war to secure a strategic opening on the Via Maris-a land hivhway linking Egypt with Mesopotamia. Here King Solomon built-one of his "cities of the chariots" as a cavalry garrison to guard the entrance to the plain, and the ruined stables and palaces of the great city can still be seen.

CHAPMAN, Minister Sunday School-10:00 a.m. Morning Worship-11:00 a.m. Evening Service-7:00 p.m. EVERYBODY WELCOME Megiddo's strategic importance and numerous battles made the town a symbol of war and Armageddon a symbol of the last of all wars. In his New Testament revelations, John prophesied a battle involving the kings of the whole world, gathered together in "a place called, in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon." And today only 20 miles to the east, lies Israel's border with Jordan and the biblical town of Belsan, which has been a frequent target of Pal- estinian Arab guerrilla rocket attacks from Jordan's Gilead Mountains. But at Armageddon itself, Jew and Arab have tilled the land and pastured their flocks in peace since the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, as a result of which the Jews controlled the plain and the Arabs settled in the hills. Avraham Hartmann, secretary of Kibbutz Megiddo nestling behind the ruins of King Solomon's city, says: "Our relations may not be extremely close, but we live with Arabs as neighbors do in any part,of the world." At the hilltop Arab village of U m m -E1 -F a h m, a few miles to the south, Arab farmer Ahmed Khasul echoes his words: "There may be no great friendship, but there is also no tension. We are neighbors." Kibbutz Megiddo was founded in 1949. As other kib-butzim in the area, it produces fruit, cotton and other farm products, while the Arab villagers rear sheep and goats. Homosexual relationships Church blessing urged KINGS LYNN, England (AP) - The former press officer of the Archbishop of Canterbury suggested recently that tht Anglican Church should consider blessing some homosexual relationships. Michael De-la-Nby, preaching at St. M a r g a r e t's Anglican Church here, said: "I am thinking of two homosexual men or women, who will be homosexual whether the church likes it or not, who wish to establish a per-manent, loving relationship, who happen to be Christians, and who want the church's blessing on their relationship." De-la-Noy said that for centuries the church had made the "disastrous error" of teaching that man's sexual nature was intended entirely for procreation. But, he argued, there is no logical reason why the church should continue to condemn homosexuals "to a life of fur-tiveness, false friendships and deception." De-la-Noy urged the church to contribute theological insights to the current search for ways of achieving sexual satisfaction THE SALVATION ARMY Corps. Officer - CAPT. AND MRS. H.

De-la-Noy was dismissed last July from his post as press secretary to the Archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the Church fund used to aid community TYRONE, Pa. (AP) - For 12 years, members of a Methodist church in this central Pennsylvania town worked to raise funds for a new building. Now they're lending the money to help their community attract a new industry. A month ago, the town was dealt a severe economic blow by drastic cuts at Westvaco Corp., a paper mill that had been its leading employer for 90 years. Some 550 of the town's 3,50O-man work force were left jobless. Seeking a solution to the problem, the congregation of the Columbia Avenue Methodist church voted to lend $100,000 to the Tyrone Improvement Corp. to finance a $1 million industrial development project. "At a time when the community does not have adequate funds to attract new industry, we are making them available," said Rev. Leroy J. Harrison, the pastor. The congregation has been holding services in makeshift quarters since the church burned eight years ago. "We felt that this was probably more urgent than building our. new. church/' the; minister said.'""We do'have"facilities and Admit Women To Governing Body Of Church HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - The Episcopal Church, after wrestling with the issue more than a quarter century, has admitted women to its top governing body. "A natural thing to happen," said Dr. Charity Waymouth of Bar Harbor, Me. "It couldn't be otherwise in the kind of society in which we live." She was one of 29 women elected this year to the House of Deputies-the 722-member lay-clergy branch of the church's bicameral governing convention. Another proposal before the 3.2-m i 11 i o n member church's 63rd general convention would initiate procedures to permit ordination of women, a prerogative expanding in Protestantism and now widely discussed in Roman Catholicism. Nun wins prize VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Paul presented an Albanian-born missionary nun with the first Pope John Peace Prize yesterday and hailed her efforts on behalf of the poor and the sick in India. Mother Teresa, 70-year-old founder of the Missionaries of Charity, accepted a cheque for $24,000 in Clementine Hall of the Apostolic Palace. She plans to use the prize money to help build a village for lepers.
