The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday. January 19, 1974 Herald--------------------------- Religion Travel program aids cultural under s landing Bob McKenzie, a former youth minister at Central Church of Christ in Lethbridge, is currently in- volved in an unusual form of Bible training called the Travelling College. Mr. McKenzie, originally from Portage la Prairie, was a student at Alberta Bible College in Calgary, in addition to his duties in Lethbridge, before transferring to Puget Sound College of the Bible for one year. Mr. McKenzie will return to ABC this summer and will then work in Lethbridge under an intern ministry program. The Travelling College, ac- cording to Jim Chapman, minister at Central Church of Christ, is a combination of educational and missionary endeavors. It involves its students in study on foreign campuses while earning credit in an American college, towards the usual three or five year degree. The young people, number- ing about 12 this year, will be involved in cross cultural communications, as they study and live with students in foreign countries. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 1203 4th AVE. S.

Mr. Chapman added the ex- perience will be a "big" benefit if a student plans to enter the missionary field. It would also help the North- American minister unders- tand members of his church from different cultures. The college was the dream of a now-retired Puget Sound professor, Connoly Silsby, who organized this first year of travel. The students have already spent from several days to several weeks, in Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Manila, Aparri and Cebu City in the Philippines; and Thailand. From now until the end of the tour in June, students will travel to Burma, three mis- sions in India, and Israel. The longest stay will be at the American Institute of Holy Land Studies in Jerusalem. From there they will attend a seminar in Athens and Rome before return to Seattle. The Puget Sound College was founded by the late Dr. C. H. Phillips, minister of the Central Church of Christ in Lethbridge from 1928 to 1937. Dr. Phillips also founded the Alberta Bible CoLcge in Calgary, working from the church here.

Elephant footstool recalls mission life By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer If a tiny rabbit's foot is a good luck omen how much good fortune can be expected from having an elephant's foot in your dorm room? Gait School of Nursing trainee Myrna Hildebrandt is about to find out. She has a footstool made from an elephant's foot in her room at the Gait residence. The object is virtually indestructable, approximately three-feet square and designed with a flip-up lid. It doubles as a foot- stool and storage com- partment. The footstool was made in Nairobi, Kenya, from an elephant shot by her missionary-father Henry Hildebrandt of Spring Coulee who felled it with a single shot through the brain from a dis- tance of 30 feet. "Actually this is rather a small elephant's said Miss Hildebrandt, who has spent most of her life in Kenya. Mr. Hildebrandt has shot much larger elephants with feet much heavier than the 25-pound foot that graces his daughter's room. A licence to hunt elephants costs in Kenya, but when one realizes proceeds from the ivory tusks alone is in ex- cess of the licence fee doesn't appear too prohibitive. Hunting and hiking were the favorite sports of the Hildebrandt family. They shot kudu, gnu, eland, impala and Thompson gazell for food. Mr. Hildebrandt built his own 13 cubic foot freezer for storage. Family hikes up foot Mount Kiliminjaro, Africa's highest mountain bordering Tanzania and Kenya, were also enjoyed during 15 years service with Africa Inland Mission. Mr. Hildebrandt, an ex- perienced grain farmer, recognizes similarities between Spring Coulee and Kenya. He envisages Kenya's crops equalling those of Southern Alberta once irriga- tion is available. Soil nutrients are similar, he finds. He believes even the Sahara will bloom once water comes to the desert. Mr. Hildebrandt claims a farming background is of inestimable value to anyone contemplating missionary work in underprivileged areas since agriculture projects help alleviate world food shor- tages. However, the family is not returning to Kenya. Mr. and Mrs. Hildebrandt have accepted a position as super- visors of the Fairview Children's Home in Swift Current, a project similar to the home for missionaries' children they headed in Nairobi the past 10 years. South Africa in throes of church-state row By MARTIN DICKSON JOHANNESBURG (Reu- ter) South Africa is in the throes of one of its periodic church-state confron- tations, and this one appears to be growing steadily more grave. The most visible manifesta- tion of deteriorating relations has been a government crack- down on dissident priests and their lay associates through banning orders, deportations and passport removals. And with the important ex- ception of the Dutch Re- formed Church, which gener- ally backs the government, the ecclesiastical response has been fierce. When a five-year banning order was served recently on Dr. Manas Buthelezi, a lead- ing African theologian, the South African Council of groups most major denominations apart firom the Dutch Reformed- warned that the government was creating hostility and deep resentment among the black people of the country. When a deportation order was served on Eoin O'Leary, an Irishman on the staff of a church-backed study centre, the council charged the move was "an interference in the right of the church to conduct its affairs in the way it sees fit." Relations between church and state here have long been tense and the current clash is in some respects only a par- ticularly bitter example of the mutual distrust that has ex- isted since the 19th century. Clergymen, advocating Christian brotherhood without regard to color, have repeat- edly come into conflict with the racial views of successive which have found their ultimate ex- pression in the apartheid ideology, the total separation of the races. Since apartheid was in- troduced in 1948 the church has produced some of the sys- tem's most vocal critics, but the present state of relations with the government is caus- ing particular concern to clergymen. The South African Council of Churches plans to make representations to Prime Min- ister John Vorster. The coun- cil says it is worried about "the many disturbing ele- 'Christians grew inside Judaism9 NEW YORK (AP) An in- ternational team of scholars has concluded that early Christianity, instead of break- ing off from Judaism as has been popularly supposed, ac- tually grew up within it. That point was underlined this week in the announce- ment of a project described as the most comprehensive analysis ever attempted of Jewish-Christian life in the first two centuries of the pre- sent era. Through most of that period, Christianity was a "discussion within not a religion apart from it, said Rev. Dr. M de Jonge of the Netherlands, general editor of the ecumenical pro- ject. "Like denominations nowa- days, there were then a great variety of groups in Judaism, one of which later called themselves Christians. We have to get away from the fallacious view of monolithic blocs." The project, involving Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish scholars and for the first time interweaving data from Jewish and Chris- tian sources as well as from other fields, has issued the first volume of a planned 10- volume series. Collectively, the series has been titled Compendia on the Jewish Background of the New Testament. Among sponsors are the Vatican Secretariat for Chris- tian Unity, the World Council of Churches, several Euro- pean denominations and research agencies and the American Jewish Committee. About 100 scholars in Europe, the United States and Israel are participating in the project, which plans to issue about two volumes each year through 1978. The first volume, The Jewish People in the First Century, is devoted to the political, social, cultural and religious life of Jews in that period. Another volume is scheduled by the end of ments emerging in the life of South Africa." START PROBE Many of these "disturbing elements" centre on the work of a controversial parlia- mentary inquiry, the Schlebusch commission, which is probing the Institute of Race Relations and the Christian Institute, an al- liance of progressive clergy- men totally opposed to apar- theid. The commission, set up to look into state security, hears all its evidence in secret and one of its initial investiga- tions, into the National Union of South African Students led to the banning of eight leaders of this organ- ization last April. There is a possibility that similar usually restricts the person banned to his home magisterial district and prevents him from at- tending gatherings or from be- ing follow from the investigations into the race relations institute and the Christian institute. Already 12 people connected with both organizations have refused to testify before the Schlebusch commission as a protest against its extra-judi- cial methods and their harsh results. LIFE PASSPORTS Four members of the Chris- tian institute have had their passports removed following their refusal to testify. But perhaps the greatest blow to this body has been the banning of Dr. Buthelezi, the Christian institute's regional director in Natal and a cousin of Chief Gatsha Buthelezi, outspoken leader of the Kwa- zulu African homeland. His banning order, for which no official reason was given, prohibits him from at- tending social, political or educational gatherings for five years and from instruct- ing or teaching students. The banning of Dr. Buth- elezi can be seen as part of a government crackdown on proponents of a new black con- sciousness movement which has emerged over the past two years as one of the more im- portant new developments in South African politics. It is a development which church organizations are actively en- couraging. The government church re- mains committed to the pro- motion of black consciousness and its stance seems certain to produce further and more acrimonious clashes with the government in future. Organized Christian camp- ing m Canada is 10 years ahead of the United States, claims Larry Kirkpatrick, Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship staff member for Southern Alberta. "In fact it wasn't until Cathie Nicoll, popularly known as the queen of cam- ping, who pioneered IVCF camping across Canada, addressed American groups that organized camping caught fire south of the Mr. Kirkpatrick said in a recent interview. Mr. Kirkpatrick has a special apprecation for IVCF camping in Canada, par- ticularly in Alberta. It was while he was completing his Master's degree in theology at Fuller Seminary, Pasadena, Calif., that he came north to Alberta in 1968 for a camp leadership program. A recreation management graduated from the Universi- ty of Oregon, Mr. Kirkpatrick had previously directed wilderness camps and served as a waterfront director. But it wasn't until he was exposed to IVCF camps in Canada, where the program is geared to the whole person physical and spiritual that camping came alive to him. Mr. Kirkpatrick now gives Nun plays organ for Methodists ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Sister Lorraine Theresa Miller, a Roman Catholic nun, plays organ for the Glacker Way Methodist Church as part of her musical mission to humanity. "God left us two gifts when he banished mankind from the Garden of she said. "If God didn't deny man the precious gift of music, why should I deny my Methodist brothers and sisters my God- given talent." Sister Lorraine, 36, is a member of the St. Mary of Oregon order and a doctoral student in organ at the Univer- sity of Michigan School of Music. She has worked at Glacier for nearly two years and before moving to Ann Arbor, she played organ at the Episcopal (Anglican) Cathedral in Portland, Ore. "Music is my a Sister Lorraine said. "Through music I can reach so many people I wouldn't otherwise meet. Music transcends religion. "I'm a musician, not a theologian, but in a society as unchristian as ours, it seems imperative that Christians learn to unite and praise God in she added. Sister Lorraine said playing at the Methodist church and giving private music lessons help finance her education. But the work has become integral to her religious philosophy. "My playing at Glacier Way is my way of acting out the spirit of the ecumenical she said. "We emphasize our similarities, rather than our differences at Glacier Way. I pray with the people, but I worship daily at my own church as well. "The many religions are just different understandings of the same basic truth Christ." LARRY KIRKPATRICK camping the number one priority in his work with youth. He returned to Southern Alberta following seminary graduation and ordination as a Baptist minister in Eugene, Oregon. Most weekends find Mr. Kirkpatrick heading north by jeep to IVCF camps at Sundre or Rocky Mountain House. On weekdays Mr. Kirkpatrick travels between Lethbridge and Medicine Hat serving as a resource person to students interested in the IVCF program. Mr. Kirkpatrick says the quality of the camp director and counsellors has a direct bearing on the individual camper. He believes the director counsellor relationship should be that of a coach that counsellors are not working for a director, but with him, and that a counsellor's chief value to a camping program is what he is as a person, not what he can do. The counsellor is not just teaching skills but is teaching a camper a person who is unique, with unique abilities, personality, quirks and fears, Mr. Kirkpatrick says. Mr. Kirkpatrick recently returned to Lethbridge after serving as assistant director for the annual Teens Ski Camp held at the acres Pioneer Lodge property at Sundre. Some 80 Alberta students attended, including several from Lethbridge and Coaldale. The ski camp followed the annual IVCF family Christ- mas camp at Sundre and an IVCF International Christmas at Banff attended by 150 Cana- dian and foreign university students.

INVITE YOU TO MAKETHE ARMY YOUR CHURCH HOME Christian pacifism encouraged TORONTO (CP) Young people will "swarm" to churches if Christians ever have the courage to lead the world in a renunciation of war, armaments and militarism, the former moderator of the Church of Scotland said this week. Lord MacLeod told a United Church congregation here that "pacifism is an absolute im- perative, at whatever risk- even if it means decimation or persecution of the church." Lord MacLeod, 77, said it is "impossible" to conceive of a just war in a nuclear age and yet "the church joins with governments in going along with the whole sad mess." "There are 40 million people in the world engaged in mak- ing weapons. It is un- believable that the church, of all institutions, should be iden- tified with this horror."
