Saturday, July 8, W1 THI LEIHMfOOI MWAIO If More recognition is paid to women in the Church By KEV. DAVID POLING Every national church as- sembly this year is nodding to- ward women's liberation. Major programs are getting over- hauled. New recognition and larger assignments are being offered. The visibility and audi- bility of women in leadership is most apparent. Yet history reveals that this is not the first decade to rec- ognize the special talents and skills of women in the church. The late 1900s and early 20th century years saw some major personalities giving leadership within the Christian community and even establishing denomin- ations. No, we're not referring, this time to Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science. Nor to Amy Semple McPherson and the Four Square Gospel Church. But the amzing, unique mini- CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 1203 4 AVE.

White and the ounding, with her husband, of he Seventh Day Adventist Church. In the new book, "Ellen G. White, Prophet of Keats Publishing, Inc., we have the most recent look at a woman who employed real ;ifts of prophecy to shape the ives of millions of people. The clue to the success of his quiet, self educated lady from Portland, Maine is summed up in her own words: "At times I am carried far ahead into the future and shown what is to take place. Then again I am shown things as jiey have occurred in the past. Why have I not claimed to be a prophet? It is because in these days many who boldly claim that they are prophets are a reproach to the cause of Christ Of course, an earlier group of Adventists (choosing Saturday as the Sabbath and rightful day of worship, not Sunday) made the most glaring gaff by predicting the end of the world 'or 1843 so asserted by Wil- liam Miller. When that date came and went, they took a crack at 1845, but the vision blurred. Following this episode, Ellen White and her husband, James, ardent followers of Miller, be- gan their own evangelistic out- reach. Ellen White was believed to have psychic powers and re- lated some visions to her followers. Much of this appear- ed in book form (although she was an able public speaker) where she penned some 37 vol- umes writing until her death at 88! Much that Mrs. White and her followers teach is not ac- cepted by all Christians and that is what makes for denomi- nations and division. Yet many of her views and visions have a surprising relevance for today. She taught that tobacco was a malignant poison. She ques- tioned the use of X-ray and held that overuse could be deadly. Directing her people toward benefits of nutrition and natur- al foods, she must have been one of the first to sound the alarm over consumption of fatty food and refined sugar. Concerning uban life in 1890, she wrote with a cutting edge: "In the future the condition of things in the cities will grow more and more objectionable from the standpoint of health, the smoke and dust of the cities are very objection- able. The constant liability to contact with disease, the pre- valence of foul air, impure water, impure food are some of the many evils to be met." Ellen G. White now has global following and in the day when women's lib is rising ii the church i( might be helpfu to see the trail carved out by individuals who were doing their thing a century ago.

Ready to admit ex-convicts to be clergymen DALLAS (AP) The largest Lutheran denomination in the United States says it stands ready to admit ex-convicts to its clergy. After all, the church observes, Jesus himself was considered a "political-religious criminal." So were "countless witnesses to adds the Lutheran Church in America. In a word policy state- ment adopted here, the church urged an end to the confine- ment of most lawbreakers in prison, saying such treatmenl only increases their alienation from society, further undermin- ing it.
