8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 31, 1971 Missionaries are ready if Indians request help WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) Missionaries today are trying to listen to the needs of the Indian, says Rev. M. S. McLean of Win- nipeg. Mr. McLean, superintendent of missions in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario for the Presbyterian Church in Canada, says: "We have made our mis- takes. We have patronized the Indians as the governments have done." But now, if Indians request the help of missionaries, "we're ready to serve." Mr. McLean, who was in Wa- terloo for a conference on world mission, said white missionaries working on Indian reserves get little negative reaction from the Moby Dick of the black man Rap white missionaries WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) White Christian missionaries were urged by two Caribbean ministers attending a conference here to "think black and be black when they're in a black Criticism of the white missionaries came from Rev. Harold Sitahal, moderator of the Presbyterian Chwch of Trinidad and Guyana, and Rev. Haimdat Sawh from Guyana, attending a Presbyterian consultation on world missions. "The white church has been the Moby Dick of the black said Mr. Sitahal. "It has haunted him, flouted him, flirted with him and dismissed Sawh, who used the term "black" to include all non-whites, made it clear he was not against white missionaries but in the mission fields of the Caribbean, he said, "white will have to become black." Mr. Sawh, like Mr. Sitahal of East Indian descent, criticized the earlier white missionaries for enduring the conditions of indentured labor. WHILES PAID MORE When indentured labor was abolished in 1917, he said, it wasn't because of any Christian influence. It was because of agitation from India. Mr. Sawh spoke of what he called the dehumanizing process, and said one aspect of this is that Caribbban clergymen are paid one-third the salary of white missionaries. He said the allowance for a Presbyterian missionary's wife is greater than '-he salary of a native worker. To Mr. Silahal missionaries have been part of what he called the exploitation process in the Caribbean and reparations must be made to the natives. He said Canada has about million invested in the area and Canadian companies reparations considering "the billions of dollars they've extracted in terms of resources, human and material, in terms of blood, sweat, and tears of the natives that have made it possible." meet iri Nova Scotia August 2 to 6 From August 2 through August 6 approximately 200 delegates of the Baptist World U-liance Executive Committee and Study Commissions will meet at Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This organization represents some 71 countries and over 30 million people. R. Fred Bullen, general secretary of the Baptist Federation of Canada notes that Wolfville and nearby Sackville were sites of the first two Baptist churches formed in Canada, Also Acadia University, founded in 1838, is one of the Canadian Baptists' major educational institutions. The Executive Committee is expected to set a meeting place for the 1975 Baptist World Congress. Dusseldorf, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden are the sites under consideration. Church grants to fund TORONTO (CP) Hie Anglican Church of Canada ha" announced a grant of has Deen made to the World Council of Churches' fund to help draft-age immigrants from the United States.

It found fewer domestic problems in families where the old man has a regular night cut at a tavern. The Christian Economic and Social Research Foundation surveyed 400 families with children in a suburb of Cardiff, Wales. Interviews included wives and health officers who deal with domestic problems. "A regular, one-weekly, night out for the father of a family is an important solvent of the inevitable frictions of more or less crowded life in restricted the report says. It is being given to the government, which is considering a liberalizing of drinking hours in pubs. The pubs usually open at 10 or 11 a.m., close for a couple of hours in the afternoon, open again about 6 p.m. and close at 10 or 11. Gwylmor Prys Williams, statistician and consultant economist for the independent church organization, said: "Basically, what we are say- EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH 12th Ave. and Mayor Magrath Dr. Phone 327-6113 Paslori REV.

There was more from the wliile liberal living inTcity, who might never have been on a reserve. At one time missionaries were not trained to understand the Indian culture, the mission su- perintendent said. But now they take orientation studies and ex- tension courses are provided by the University of Manitoba for the continuing education of home missionaries. Mr. McLean said he is not op- posed to the missionary efforts of some Indians who during the last five years have been trying to persuade their brethren to re- turn to the old Indian religions and ways of life. OFFERS URBAN' TRAINING One of the church's projects has been a Fellowship Centre at Kenora, Ont, a place where In- dians can go for comfort, rest, training and security. The staff try to help those who come to the centre to be- come urbanized and to learn the ways of city life. The centre also gives Indians from the 12 reserves it serves a place to stay. It has a library, counselling and referral facilities for all agencies in Kenora, student tu- toring, homemakers clubs, Alco- holics Anonymous groups and a court worker. Mr. McLean said the Kenora community, aside from the church, hasn't entered into the work of the centre. "But I wouldn't blame them alto- gether. We haven't asked for their support." Alcohol is not allowed on the is glue sniffing, which has been a problem in the past. If Indians come back to the centre drunk they are not accepted. "As long as they can control i themselves, they are accept-' able." that pubs together ing is, 'Don't upset the pub as a local amenity." It has a therapeutic value." The survey found that 50 per cent of teetotaler families do not have domestic prob- lems, compared with 72 per cent of families who go to a pub occasionally and 80 per cent of families who go once a week. Lutherans condemn abortion MILWAUKEE (AP) The second largest Lutheran de- nomination in the United States has condemned abortion as "contrary to the will of God." The church's unqualified op- position is the firmest stand taken on the subject recently among major Protestant bodies and parallels that of Roman Catholicism. At the eight-day convention, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod said "no person has the right to extinguish human life by a decision of his own." "In a "fallen a choice sometimes becomes ne- cessary "between one life and the church added, but even then, "sinful abortion" is not justified by human mo- tives, but only by God's for- giveness. Rebel priests are acquitted FLORENCE, Italy (AP) A court has acquitted five Ro- man Catholic priests and four laymen of the Isololto parish that rebelled against church au- thority in 1969. The nine were charged with instigating a crime and disturbing a religious function. Dozens of persons, most of them Isolotto parishioners, ap- plauded when the court an- nounced its verdict.
