Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE UTHCRIPGE HEBALD Saturday, July 11, 1970------- FAMED PASSION PLAY Hera is the opening scene of the 1970 Passion Play at Oberammergau. This year's performance is the 36th in which residents of the German village act out the judgment and crucifixtion of Christ. Tho pageant is enacted every 10 years in fulfilment of a vow made 300 years ago by villagers who escaped the plague. Christianity Loses Out Sn North Ireland Crisis By DAVID POLING TOE NOW have seen the elec- tion of the Rev. Ian Pais- ley to a seat in the House of Commons representing a dis- trict in Northern Ireland. This surely must warm the hearts of those Protestant bigots who yearn for repressive measures against the Roman Catholic minority of Londonderry and Belfast for Rev. Paisley has promised in one simple cam- paign slogan: UP PROTEST- ANT DOWN ROME. The Christian community in the United States and Canada has been completely baffled by the riots and rock throwing in Northern Ireland. The perform- ance of Bernadette Devlin, tWe 23-year-old Roman Catholic leader and member of Parlia- ment, has added a Joan of Arc flair to the scenario being play- ed in the streets of Belfast. Her sentence of six months in prison has not reduced the drama nor has the parading of the Protestant Orange Order in Shared Leadership Concept Seen For Churches In Future KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) Dr. Frank C. Peters, president of Waterloo Lutheran Univer- sity, believes church organiza- tional structures are patterned too frequently after General Mo- tors rather than the New Testa- ment. As one of a team of five, un- paid ministers at Kitchener Mennonite Brethren Church, he has helped decentralize the thority in his church. HOW CAN YOU BEST HELP PEOPLE IN TROUBLE?

Dr. Peters, an ordained Men- oonite minister who co-ordi- nates the ministry team, says the concept of shared leadership or a plural ministry is a vital part of the Anabaptist and Men- Donifc tradition. "Our fathers of Reformation he said in an interview, "were known as radical disci- ples." "In this they resembled the early Christians who were ac- cused of turning the world up- side down. The early Mennonite Brethren were also known as radicals in their insistence on changes within the church structure." ALL PARTICIPATE In the church's "consensus the whole congrega- tion .engages in participatory de- mocracy. Young and old are free to take part in the discus- sion which results in a declara- tion of congregational consensus on policy matters.

Christ's Doctrine Preached But Not Practised WINNIPEG (CP) The pros- ident of the Baptist Federation of Canada believes the indif- ference of youth1 towards the church is due to a feeling that "the doctrine of Christ has not been practised as preached." Dr. J. B. McDormand of Win- nipeg said in an interview that the federation is concerned about where it is going in rela- tion to the public. "The Baptists are very much aware of the need for more ef- f e e t i v e communication of Christ's truth to a bewildered and preoccupied be said. "The methods of the church must be more flexible, more creatively adapted to the com- plexities of our time." Dr. McDormand added that the church can improve itself by seeking a greater measure of unity within its own parti- cular fellowship and by seek- ing greater fellowship and un- derstanding within all denomin- ations.

So what do we have here in this uproar that produced five deaths and 100 arrests during the last week of June? Nothing more or less than hate; segre- gation, intimidation, sectarian strife, name calling, lying, abuse all in the name of Jesus Christ! Can you believe it, that in this modern day of running water and electric lights, there are still politicians who will use the Bible, the Church and the Christian voca- bulary to put down and hold down other people even other Christians? That is the story of Northern Ireland and that is the game plan of the Rev. Paisley. There are presently about one million Protestants and Roman Catholics in Northern Ireland. Should the Paisley mood become the standard op- erating procedure, many jour- nalists have feared that civ war will result with armie crossing into Ulster {tore the South to even up the odds. Recently this writer receive< a leLlor from Hie Ca-nadian north country. A girl describee her experiences along the. bur der of the Northwest Territory One 'great satisfaction for her the constant, natural co-opera tion of religious groups. The only church in town belonga to the Roman Catholics, ye they happily shared it Lutherans, Mormons, Pentecos tal and United Church; of Chris neighbors. Her comments we in such pleasant contrast to the bad scene in Northern Irclanc and reminded one of the state- ment penned by Albert Schweit zer: 'When I still was merely child, I felt it to be something beautiful Lliat in our village Catholics and Protestants wor shipped In the same building and my heart fills with joy to- day whenever I set foot inside it. I should like all the churches in Alsace which are still by both confessions to remain so, as a prophecy of, and ex hortation to, a future of rcii gious unity, upon which we must ever keep our thoughts fixed if we are really and truly Christian." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Revolution Pace Being Quickened TORONTO (CP) The pic- Lures of the earth taken by as- tronauts have given all men a message that is quickening the pace of revolution, Dr. Robed McClure, moderator of the United Church of Canada, said here.

About delegates are attending the five-Say meeting. Dr. McClure said nationalism is outdated and that at the same time the attitude that mis- fortune is God's will is no long- er prevalent. "The space program proved three tilings. Almost anything is now possible if you want it badly enough and are ready to pay for it and if you can get a big enough and technically high-powered enough team to- gether and co-ordinate their ef- forts." 50 Take Part In Work Tours TORONTO: Fifty young peo- ple from Canada, British Hon- duras, Antigua and Guyana are taking part in the 1970 joint work tours of the Anglican Church of Canada and the Ang- lican Church of the West In- dies.
