Presbyterians are ready co-operate but not merge TORONTO (CP) The new moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada believes that Christians who are against de- nominations merging should not ignore other beliefs. 'It's a product of a new interest in said Rev. Max Putnam in a recent inter- view. "People cross denomina- tions to find the spiritual cli- mate in which they can worship and grow as Christians." "The day has just passed when you say I'm a Presby- terian because I was born one." The 52-year-old'father of five said Ms church does not have a closed mind when it comes to other denominations. "As Presbyterians, we have been willing to liold out our hands to all Christian denomina- tions to share in co-operative services and so forth, but not to lie said. "We believe we have a dis- tinctive theology very important a a day in which we live. We're ot prepared to give it up just o belong to a monolithic giant." HAS VIEWS ON YOUTH As far as reaching the youth f today, Mr. Putnam disap- roves of the "fun and games" pproach. We can't compete with lie he said. "If young seople want fun and games they -an find belter ones outside the church."

Durng that time, he met a chaplain, Rev. Finley Stewart of Kitchener, who invited Mr. Put- nam to assist him in Kitchener, Ont., after the war. "I always felt that some of my best training for the ministry were the four years I spent at his church in Mr. Putnam recalled. "There I could observe and work." UNDERSTANDS YOUNG Although strong in his own be- liefs, Mr. Putnam is under- standing when it comes to the search of young people today to find a religion they can be part of. "The young are forgetting the church as an institution and going back to Hie basic he said. "It's got to be something Lhey can talk about, and it's got to be life." Mr. Putnam is enthusiastic about today's Jesus Movement. "It gets back to the only way to be right with God, through Jesus Christ. "The Jesus Movement sees this. And they derive hope the fact that Christ will come he stated. "H all we can see is their long hair and dirty jeans, we're in trouble. We have to see the young people in search ol Christ."
