Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 14, TMI UTHMIDOI HttALD Abortion counselling WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) The Eaitera Canada Synod of the Lutheran Church In Amer- ica voted Thursday against abortion on demand but recom- mended Criminal Code revi- sions to permit counselling on abortion. The 200 delegates, in the final day of their tbrewlay con- vention, also approved a recom- mendation by a synod study group that said federal and pro- vindal governments should fi- nance counselling centres where abortions are The synod said it could not condone abortion as desirable means of birth control because denying a fetus the right to life goes against Christian prin- ciples. But Christians should not sim- ply refrain from killing but help others to live life more fully. "In addition to recognizing the sacredness of life, factors such as age, health emotional stability, marital and financial status of the woman and her own needs must be considered."

SALVATION HEALING MIRACLES Pottor: T. W. Royeroft a.m.-Moming Service Service Universalist Church makes swinging singles famous NEW YORK (AP) There's the city that made the swinging single famous. Its members are mostly in their 30s to 50s and their meeting place is church instead of bars. The new scene has nothing to do with any religious revival. It's an alternative to the "meat shop" atmosphere of bars and answers the churches' efforts to fill a void left by the flight of married members to the sub- urbs. The centre of the church scene is the Universalist Church .of New York and a typical Fri- day night has to be seen to be believed: long lines early in the evening, scalpers hawking tick- overflow pounding on the doors for admittance. The attraction is a special "rap session" that bypasses chit-Chat and fTts straight to personal opinions and ex- periences. the equivalent of several hours .of idle chatter at a cock- tail said John Bowen, 46, president of the church's singles group, Lib Women and Lib Men. STARTED ml'H ADS The church got Into the sin- gles scene in November, 1971, with newspaper advertisements .saying: of the Sexist Singles Scene? An experiment in hu- man relationships, socializing, rap on liberation. Refresh- ments. No sex role hangups. King ideas, humor." In the early days about 30 people showed up. Today, the sessions easily draw a capacity of 350 people Friday night at a head and 150 Monday night at The singles scene has been salvation for the church. Prior to 1971. its membership was down to SO and income 'did not cover operating expenses. Now the membership is up to ISO and the church is over the break-even point. To accommodate the crowds, a dozen pews have been re- moved and folding chairs are set up in clusters around the church-in the basement, in the eaves, even in the sanctuary. The program is simple. After a coffee and registra- tion period, the participants split into groups of 12 to discuss a common un- spoken demands do I bring to a or '-'How much do I want to know about my partner's past or "How do I handle rejec- After about an hour there is more socializing. TRADE PHONE NUMBERS Plastic cups of wine go on safe for 50 cents. Recorded rock music fills the building. Min- gling begins. Telephone num- bers are exchanged. Conversa- tion seems to be easier. Name tags-first names too. Subtleties are often spared. "I talked to a girl for 20 min- utes and she told me she was from New Jersey. I said 'Wh? do you waste my time? I can't get involved with someone from New recalled Mike Simons, 37, a printing ink sales- man, who lives on Manhattan's West Side and does not have a car. Simons has been coming to the church for four months. To him the idea that single men in New York can easily land dates is pure myth. He said most of the people be meets through work are men and that the women be meets in bars are in- evitably 19-year-old students. "Most of (be men and women here are said Si- mons. "I have a lot common with Bowen, the group president, believes the rap sessions tend to discourage what be called the "pick-up atmosphere" of singles bars. However, he said he has noticed lately both men and women cruising through the crowd, and then leaving. Most participants said, how- ever, that they hoped to form a relationship or get married. The majority appear to be in their late 20s and 30s. Many are separated or so- caDetl "recently single." A few are widows or widowers and there are even some from the original singles scene, who have just followed the crowd to the new "in" place. There are no religious serv- ices during the evenings. About a third of the participants are Universalist church believes Christ was a- gn teacher but not the son of God. Bowen, who has become a member of the church, said be is an atheist.

PORT CREDIT, Ont. The Lutheran Church in America- Canada Section took action here June 23 accepting an invitation to merger negotiations that could lead to the formation of one Lutheran Church in Can- ada. The LCA-CS, meeting in its sixth biennial convention at the Queen of Apostles Renewal Centre, unanimously and en- thusiastically adopted a resolu- tion that accepts an invitation issued by the Evangelical Lu- theran Church of Canada "to enter into official negotiations to bring about a merger the LCA-S and ELCC." The action came after serious and thoughtful consideration of the benefits or lack thereof of one Canadian church and of concerns in leaving the Luther- an Church in America, 96 per cent of whose members are 'in the U.S.A. Benefits seen are a more ef- fective Christian witness and mission through one organ- izational structure in Canada rather than the present three structures, and one Lutheran BETHANY BAPTIST CHURCH (North American Baptist General Conference) 329 19 Street North Church Moderator: MR.
