Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 4, 1970 Canadian YMCA Agrees Drop Reference To Jesus TORONTO (CP) For the first time in its long history, the Canadian YMCA has agreed on a statement. of purpose that eliminates reference to Jesus Christ. The new statement, called the York basis after its develop- ment at Toronto's York Univer- sity in 1968, says: "The Young Men's Christian Association is a worldwide fel- lowship dedicated to the growth of persons in spirit, mind ami body, and in a sense of respon- sibility to each other and to the human community." A statement from life Y's na- tional council of Canada said the new basis was influenced by I discussion from Jewish mem- bers of the council. Other acceptable statements of purpose, the council said, are the 1855 Paris basis, adopted at the organization's first world conference, the Preston basis, adopted in Canada in 1934, and the Cleveland basis, adopted in Archbishop Clark Retires Aug. 31 Primate's Role Has Changed TORONTO (CP) Arch- bishop Howard H. Clark, who retires Aug. 31 after 10 years as primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, feels the role of the primate has undergone change. He says there had been a feel- ing the primate should be only chairman of the house of bish- ops and president of the general synod but now the primate has become a spokesman for the church at national and interna- tional levels. "The post is one where there is a great need for sensitivity, because it isn't your personal opinions you're he said in an interview. "And yet, you have to be completely honest because if you say what you think people would like to.hear, or what the church would want to hear, then you might be compromising a fundamental honesty and that I think every Christian should have." Archbishop Clark, 67, will temporarily be replaced by Archbishop William L. Wright of the diocese of Algoma. A new primate will be elected when the general synod meets next January. 1931 and amended in 1958. The Paris- basis states: "The Young Men's Christian Association seeks to unite those young men who, regarding Jesus Christ as their God and Saviour, according to the Holy Scriptures, desire to be His dis- ciples in their faith and in their life and associate their efforts for the extension of His king- dom amongst young men." The Preston basis states the organization's purpose is "to lead young men to faith in God through Jesus Christ; to pro- mote their growth into fullness of Christian character; to lead them into active membership in the church of their choice; to make the extension of life King- dom of God throughout the world the governing purpose of their lives." The Cleveland basis states: "The Young Men's Christian Association is a worldwide fel- lowship united by common loy- alty to" Jesus Christ for the pur- pose of building- Christian per- sonality and1 a Christian soci- ety." ARCHBISHOP CLARK No One Really Does Know What Jesus Looked Like By REV. H. H. W. EGLER in Winnipeg Free Press lyfANY in our modern hippie generation use the excuse that they think they look like Jesus because they think that He had long hair and a beard. As a matter of act, no one knows what Jesus really did look like. They did not, of course, have cameras in those days; in to all intent and Low Pay Depletes Ranks Of Ministry OTTAWA (CP) An "irra- tional sense of guilt" has- pre- vented the clergy from discuss- ing salaries over the years and the resulting low pay is deplet- ing the ranks of the ministry, an Anglican minister said here.

Sophomore Elected By Lutherans MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. CAP) Jeff Pym, 18, a sophomore at Waterloo Lutheran University, Waterloo, Ont., was elected this week to the 33-member exe- cutive council of the Lutheran Church in America. It is the church's highest administrative council, making decisions be- tween the church's biennial con- vention, now in session here. Thankful He's Priest! LONDON, Ont. (CP) Rev. S. E. McGuire, in a bulletin to parishioners of St. John the Divine Roman Catholic Church, extended congratulations to graduates of two separate schools, then added this comment: "Now school is out. The teachers give a sigh of re- lief; the students a shout of joy; the parents a groan of anticipation. Two months of family bliss. Thank God for celibacy." purpose, no one ever even paint- ed a picture of Jesus that re- mains from that era. The pictures we have of Jesus, are the result of artists' conceptions, and they Vary from short hair to long hair, with variations of color, and also they vary with the times and customs in which the artists lived. The desire to look like Jeus, and to be like Jesus is not .only confined to. our present day but poets and hymn writers often express the idea, "I would be like Jesus." There are many hymns and poems which express this thought, which indeed is a wonderful as- piration, and Jesus is indeed someone well worth emulating. It all depends upon the as- pect of Jesus that we wish to emulate or admire, that makes us wish that we might look like, or be like Jesus. Certainly we like to give way to wish- ful thinking, that we might be holy, a son of God, and possess the many nice features we often ascribe to Him. However, be- fore we try to be like Jesus let us remember although we may not know what He looks like, from the Bible we may learn to know something about His feelings, that He knew the feeling of pain in all its forms; that He knew suffering and death, as well as heartache and sorrow. Before you make up your mind that you really want to be like Jesus, it would be well to heed what Jesus said to His dis- ciples. Jesus reminds us as He did, His disciples, "If the world hate you, ye know it hated me before it hated so if you really want to be like Jesus, you must naturally expect to be hated by the world and the worldly. Do not wish to be like Jesus, unless you are willing to accept only a large measure of ingrat- itude for your acts of kindness. OrJy one out of 10 lepers both- ered to return to thank Jesus and ii one out of 10 really ap- preciate your acts of kindness, you will be lucky. Do not wish to be like Jesus, unless you are willing to be hurt deeply by those you love, and have a large supply of for- giveness in store for those who injure and offend you. "A pro- phet is not without honor save in his own house." Do not wish to be like Jesus unless you are capable of being misunderstood and hated by those you try to help, just as Jesus told His disciples. The world hates those who try to do good, and label them "Do- gooders" as a term of ridicule. Do not wish to be like Jesus, unless you are prepared to be persecuted for the truth. The world Bates truth as badly to- day as it ever did. Our mod- ern generation like all its prede- cessors would rather believe a than the truth, and as one philosopher put it "The bigger the lie, the easier it is to get people to believe it." People often would rather die from smoking, drinking, "the and using drugs, than lis- ten to their doctor, pastor, or psychiatrist who attempt to warn of the evils of their habits. Even though people confuse "wishing" with Even though wishing is an expression of an unattainable desire it may still be a hopeful sign, that people still would "like to be like Jesus." What a wonderful work this really could be if we could be like Jesus, "the Way, the Truth and the Life." It could still be a wonderful world, if we would but heed Christ's simple com- mandment, "Love one an- other." Poverty Problem In Rural Churches WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) Rural church ministers from various denominations across Canada got their heads together here recently to look into their common problems. Poverty seemed to be the one most com- monly faced. Called the National Institute for Church Leaders in Small Communities, the meeting was attended by 24 female anil 22 pas- torates as far away as the Yukon and Newfoundland. The delegates, representing Anglican, United, Lutheran and Presbyterian churches, stayed with families in rural Waterloo County. Although they found poverty a problem common to all, some of the delegates said they were The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 1912 10th Avenua South 1st Ward 3rd Ward 4th Ward............................... 2808 28th Street South University Ward 6th Avenue 'A' and 23rd Street North 2nd Ward..............................

For example, Rev. David Smith said some fishermen in his Bella Coola, B.C., congrega- tion faced with a shortage of fish and loss of boats through repossession, found it difficult to believe that Prairie farmers were that badly off. But the ministers from the Prairies were qmck to point out to him at the meeting that some of their farmers had to sell par- cels of land to pay their taxes. Conference co-ordinator was Dr. Norman H. High of the On- tario Institute for Studies in Ed- ucation and former dean of Uni- versity of Waterloo. Dr. High, a Mennonite, is also a rural soci- ologist. Pelican Symbol In religious symbolism, the pelican represents the Body and Blood of Christ, and of His atoning sacrifice, because it was popularly believed to feed its young with its blood. Saint's Symbol In religious art, the sym- bol for St. Ignatius is a lion, or pride of ravening lions, because he was thrown to the lions and so martyred. CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE Pastors REV. R.
