g THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurdny, Juno 30, 1970 snister's Work Week Sinecure These Days By DAVID POLING President Christian Ilcrnlil Assn. TOHN OLIVER NELSON J used to say that the min- istry was the easiest job in which to goof off and the hard- est job to do well. What he meant was that the average pastor has a great deal of free- dom in the planning and execu- tion of his time. His work week is full of choice, surrounded by fresh options every day. Al- though Sunday 'is a regular as- signment of preaching and leading in worship, the weekly program is shaped by the pas- tor's interests and desires. Many people have gained the impression of late that the local minister is involved in full-time protest, demonstration and so- cial action. The television cam- era shows a good representa- tion of clergy at peace rallies, induction center sit ins and campus noise making. But when you consider the or more in the professional category of clergy, probably 10 per cent or iess are visible in the activities described. Your local pastor is concern- ed. He is in the ministry be- cause he loves God and people. Yet his ordained office is peace making, reconciliation and forgiveness. The clenched fist and the stone throwing and the four letter words are not part of his preparation or his style of life. Down deep he understands the rage of young people and the fury of the hard hats. He also knows that neither course will build an en- during community or a loving fellowship. He is determined to be a pastor, a shepherd of the entire flock. Recently, I read this descrip- lion of n Presbyterian minis- ter's schedule in Bartlesville, Okla. Bill Llewelyn has been on the staff of this ber congregation for several years and this spring was elected senior pastor. The church newsletter gave this comment on his day-to-day program: Bill begins each day with early study and meditation. He is normally in the church of- fice mornings from to noon Monday through Friday. He spends afternoons, three to four days a week, calling on members, potential members, shut ins and those sick at home, in hospitals or those having other emergencies. He finds two or three nights each week are needed for church meetings and one or two addi- tional nights for church calling. Saturday is his "day off" to be Many Register For Congress On Evangelism Groimdswell Of Support A recent survey has uncov- ered 44 Canadian Protestant denominations with a member- ship of 30 or more congrega- Adv enlists Hold World Conference ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. The 51st World Conference of Seventh-day Adventists formal- ly opened here with welcom- ing speeches by Atlantic City's mayor, William T. Somers, as well as church and civic lead- ers at Convention Hall. Attending the ICKlay con- clave are delegates represent- ing e a c h of Canada's prov- inces, as well as nearly 200 countries in which Adventists are actively working. Non-dele- gates, pastors, and church members from Canada, the United States and abroad are expected to push attendance figures over the mark during peak times. The Adventist General Con- ference Session is held once every four years. The last one was held in Detroit, Michigan In 1966, and officials have ten- tatively set Salt Lake City, Utah as the site for their world conference in 1974. CENTRAl CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 llth St. S.

The Canadian Congress on Evangelism, to be held in Ot- tawa in August, seems to have succeeded in enlisting the par- ticipation of a surprising num- ber. The Congress office in Willowdale, Ontario reports that 32 of the 44 denominations have indicated their support of the evangelism conclave. In addition, 13 religious societies are sending delegates. Executive Secretary, Mar- ney Patterson, an Anglican minister evangelist calculates that tte 31 supporting denom- inations would have churches and more than three million members. That unusual groundswell of support did not just happen. The Congress has faced the usual problems of suspicion, in- dependence, indifference, and opposition that have plagued co-operative religious events in Canada. "Maybe the urgency of this age has made Chris- ians realize that this is no time to engage in cat and dog states Patterson in ex- ploring the spectrum of par- ticipation. Congress organizers hav.e re- fused to be side-tracked in then- goal of staging a national gathering which will be a main thrust on evangelism. The va- rious workshops and keynote addresses will deal with other items as they relate to evan- gelism, but the Congress is committed to the view that the Christian message alone has the answer to the concerns of modern man. Dr. Carl F. H. Henry, one of he keynote speakers, bleakly paints the contemporary back- ground which gives rise to the ev a n gelism emphasis.

We sit glued to televi- sion sets, unmindful that an- cient pagan rulers staged Col- osseum circuses to switch the minds of the restless over from Che realities of a spirituality- vagrant empire to the illusion that all is basically The answer? Henry feels that it the churches fail to engage in a vital and relevant evange- lism, "future historians may well look back upon our own lifetime as that very point in church history when the Chris- tian churches forfeited their greatest spirited opportunity since the apostolic By mid-June, 450 of the 800 expected delegates had regis- tered. Organizers are con- fident that the Congress is shaping up to its billing as "Canada's religious event of the Survey Shotvs Young Italians Igjiore Church ROME (Reuters) Only 41 per cent of young Italians de- scribe themselves as practising Roman Catholics and 24 per cent consider that the church has no meaning in modern soci- ety, says a survey published here. Only 2.5 per cent said they would go to a priest for advice. The survey by the Doxa poll- ing organization, also indicated that a large majority of Italians are indifferent over Pope Paul's ruling on birth control. CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE Pastor: REV. R.

He plans to Hold weekly staff meetings on Tuesday morning and to an- swer correspondence and re- view the First Presbyterian News on Wednesday; Thursday and Friday mornings he has set aside for sermon prepara- tion, and Saturday night for final "polish" of his presenta- tion.
