Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Saturday, June 22, 1974 Alliance pastor hunts growth recipe By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer Four essential ingredients are necessary to church growth. Rev. Daniel Goldsmith of Lethbridge Alliance Church says after returning recently from a three-week tour of American congregations. "Leadership ability, pastoring in one place for as many as 20 years, prompt visitation of new worshippers and congregational discipleship are the four basic ingredients." he said in an interview upon return. Sponsored by the Canadian Bible College. Regina. Mr. Goldsmith enrolled with 80 other students in an Evangelism Explosion course.

In Salem, Oregon. Mr. Goldsmith noted a family emphasis at Rev. Donald Bubna's church. With over 1.000 persons attending two Sunday morning services each week, the church is one of the largest within the Alliance denomination. In this congregation, families encourage other families to develop their Christian faith. The most impressive church, according to Mr. Goldsmith, was Coral Ridge Presbyterian in Fort Lauderdale. Florida. Under the leadership of Dr. James Kennedy, a Columbia Seminary graduate. Coral Ridge has grown from 17 members in 1960 to a current 2.400. Two services are held each Sunday morning and four on Easter Sunday. Mr. Goldsmith discovered.

READERS Mr. Goldsmith said the Coral Ridge membership makes good use of a book and cassette library to aid their Christian study program. Volumes of sermons by C. H. Spurgeon, the British Baptist preacher, and recordings of Dr. Kennedy's sermons are popular items. One Coral Ridge member was so enthusiastic about sharing his Christian faith that Mr. Goldsmith failed to ascertain from conversation the nature of the man's employment. Mr. Goldsmith found all growing churches had pastors who could motivate their people to action. Dr. Kennedy, for instance, started by taking two laymen with him on pastoral calls. Home Bible study groups appear to be another source of growth. Mr. Goldsmith said. After a pastoral visit, new contacts were assigned to a group meeting in their neighborhood. Missions to merge A close integration of Christian missionary work in East Malaysia has been agreed upon by the Overseas Missionary Fellowship and the Borneo Evangelical Mission. In a recent public statement issued in Melbourne. Australia, the two interdenominational societies explained the merger will provide additional church leadership. Administration offices, housing and education facilities for missionary children and additional male workers for the Borneo field will be some of the more immediate gains. Borneo Evangelical Mission comprises Australian, New- Zealand and British missionaries. It grew out of a foreign missionary vision given its founders during student days at the Melbourne Bible Institute. BEM has operated in Sarawak and North Borneo since 1928. The Overseas Missionary Fellowship, formerly known as the China Inland Mission, was founded by Hudson Taylor. Since its expulsion from the Chinese mainland, the OMF has developed missionary programs among Chinese and national people throughout East Asia. The OMF was established in 1865. Ministerial officers New officers for the fall season of Lethbridge Ministerial Association were announced recently. President is Major Joan Pierce. Salvation Army; vice- president Rev. Donald'Sipe of Norbridge Community Church and secretary-treasurer is Rev. Derek Hoskin. St. Augustine's Anglican Church. International meeting site Christian Science world headquarters in Boston, Mass. Christian Scientists review world problems Today's need for moral integrity is "one of the most obvious urgencies in our Christian Scientists from many countries were told at the denomination's an- nual meeting recently in Boston, Mass. "No nation could long prosper while drifting into a miasma of moral blindness, public and said DeWitt John, new chairman of the Christian Science board of directors. "Divine Principle (God) is the real source of integrity and justice for every he said, "and our individual adherence to Principle is a powerful help in demonstrating God's govern- ment among men." More than members of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, were on hand for the meeting, including some from Alberta. Alex Pettigrew, committee on publication. for Alberta, noted that a number of visitors viewed the Church centre for the first time. Mr. John told the gathering that there is an answer to the widespread confusion in the world. "At the heart of all of today's he said, "is the need for spiritualization of thought. Undestroyed materialism is what would prevent healing and reduce society to confusion." Eric Bole, a trustee of The Christian Science Publishing Society from London, England, noted that The Christian Science Monitor "reports the problems confronting mankind" and that the Christian Science Herald and the other religious publications "show us how to confront these problems how to be problem solvers, not problem dodgers." Mr. Bole reported that Por- tuguese and Spanish religious periodicals now are being printed monthly for the first time, and that more than 20 new translated publications were issued during the past year. At a time when "traditional concepts of resources, savings, and financial supply" have been severely shaken, it is imperative that Christian Scientists help the world get a better understanding of "true spiritual values and sub- said Marc Engeler, Treasurer of The Mother Church. Mr. Engeler is from Geneva, Switzerland. Spiritual healing is a dis- tinctive activity of the denomination. A broad range of healings were noted in the report of The Christian Science board of lectureship, which was read by Grace Bemis Curtis, chairman. Six new lecturers were an- nounced: Mrs. Berthe Girardin of Paris, France; Rolf Schindler of Berlin, Ger- many; Mrs. Barbara Dix Henderson of London, England: David C. Driver of Seattle; Glen C. Livezey of Chicago: and James W. McGraw of Boston. Protestant 'uniqueness' hampers Jewish role By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) Most American Protestants do not understand either Judaism or Christianity's connections with it. an ecumenical leader says. Steps are being taken toward filling that gap. Claire Randall, general secretary of the National Council of Churches, said its office on Jewish-Christian Relations will provite an interchange with Jewish representatives that will help overcome the problem. She told a meeting of the American Jewish Committee that the lack of Protestant knowledge about Jews and Judaism arises partly from the fact that "across the country, most Protestants have limited contacts with the Jewish community." "Christians and Jews have a common vision of a kingdom that is just and righteous." she said. Immanuel delegates off to Victoria Church Chuckles by CARTWRIGHT HELP OUR CHURCH LEMONADE It's working!

(CP) The Presbyterian general as- sembly decided Friday to raise the basic salary for ministers by a year starting Jan. 1. The current basic minimum is a year plus a house.

The 101st general assembly will meet in Montreal next June. Cult forecast fizzles YAO, Japan (AP) Katsuichi Motogi, 69-year-old founder of the Ichigen-no-Miya cult, predicted recently that a big earthquake would hit Osaka at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Motogi tried to commit hara-kiri, slashing himself across the stomach with a samurai sword. He was reported in serious condition. Money 'a way to reach out' TORONTO (CP) The moderator of the United Church of Canada said this week that people are right when they say the church is always after money. "Of course we're after money, and we're going to be asking for said Rt. Rev. N. Bruce McLeod at a service held at the Forum at Ontario Place. "Not to be concerned about money in this rich land would be immoral. Money is one effective way of reaching out caring hands to a needy and hungry world."
