Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Snturefoy, June 24, 1971 'Awaken people to Christ is what the Church needs' KINGSTON, Ont. A Presbyterian minister who does r.ot hem or haw says the problem of the cluirch today Is not to find new ministries or new structures or new mergers or even to "get rid oE the institution." "Our people need to be awakened to Christ and to deepen their relation to says Rev. Max V. Putnam. He's the new moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and brings to the job not only the evangelical ap- proach of a fervent servant o[ God but a thorough knowledge of worldly ways in the dis- turbing '70s and administra- tive experience. "1 have a real thing about this.11 he said in an interview. "I'm convinced that if it is truly there, then it will mani- fest itself in our lives and will be expressed in terms of the pressing social needs of the time." He was the unanimous selection as the spiritual and administrative head of the Presbyterian Church at the 93th general assembly in To- ronto June 4. 'WE FACE DEATH' Tlu's in itself was an indica- tion of a changing mood in the church. Those who voted for him were "saying sometlu'ng to us about what the grass- roots of the church really means today." The Presbyterian Church chooses its moderator by a vote of ministers and elders in the 44 presbyteries across the country. The names of seven candi- dates were presented to the presbyteries this year. Dr. Putnam described the seven as representing the full "theo- logical spectrum" and added: "Yet they settled on me. Since I am well known for my evangelical the emphasis on basics like con- version to Christ and the cen- trality of the our people are concerned for these tilings. "My own view of the church, and this includes them all, is that we claim to be alive but are actually full of death. "Life to many seems to mean church programs and all kinds of activities. You can have all this and be dead as a dodo." No Bible-thumping reaction- ary, evangelistic Max Putnam believes in being deeply in- volved in the lite of the com- School 1 Service Service 1202 3rd Avenue S. A.

WAS ARMY DRIVER He is director of Kingston's Ihurch Athletic League which sponsors hockey, bowling, baseball and volleyball for more than youngsters each year. In days gone by, the moder- ator himself was one of Can- ada's belter Softball pitchers. In his first pastorate, in Lis- towel, Ont., he played Inter- County baseball when he wasn't preaching. He was first baseman for Listowel Le- gionnaires. Perhaps his most memora- ble year as a hockey player was in 1939. He was in his final year in high school and played for Perth (Ont.) Blue Whigs, a Junior A team that got into the Memorial Cup fi- nals that year against Verdun (Quo.) Maple Leafs. Rocket Richard was on the Verdun team that won the cup. Dr. Putnam was born in Perth In 1920 and was raised as an Anglican. His father died when he was 10 months old and his mother, now 97, was left to bring up five chil- dren. He credits his Second World War army padre, Rev. Finlay Stewart, with influencing him to enter the ministry. Young Putnam joined the army in 1910 from lu'gh school and be- came clerk-driver for Chap- lain Stewart, padre in the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, popularly known as HEME. They worked as a learn for 4'4 years, 14 YEARS IN KINGSTON Sgt. Putnam's work in- cluded participation in a teaching operation known as "the padre's hour." In 18-15. his thoughts turning to the ministry as a post-war calling, he married Norah Heard of Warwickshire and brought her home when the war ended. He began univer- sity training at University of Waterloo and was certified as a candidate for the ministry. Then 25, he was taken on staff at St. Andrew's Church in Kitchener, Ont. He graduated in 1018 from the University of Western On- tario in London and went to Knox College in Toronto for his divinity training. Ordina- tion came in 1951 and his first call was to Knox Presbyteria Church in Listowell. Since 1958 he has been min- ister of St. Andrew's Church here, the church that Can- ada's first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, called his home church. During bis year in office he plans to commute regularly to church headquar- ters in Toronto and an assist- DEDICATE GIDEON BIBLES as a continuing memorial Ph. 327-5322 or 328-4565 PLACED IN HOTELS, SCHOOLS, HOSPITAIS, PRISONS OUTDOOR SINGSPIRATION SUNDAY, JUNE 25th p.m. HENDERSON LAKE BALL STADIUM AN INTER-CHURCH SERVICE ant will take part of the loar! in St. Andrew's. Through the years he has served other national bodies of the Presbyterian Church, including the general board of missions, the board of evan- gelism and the senate of Knox College wliich last year con- ferred on him the degree of doctor of divinity. AGAINST UNION It was while he was at Knox, he says now, that he himself came to a "deep awareness of the reality of Jesus Christ." Of his new job as spiritual and administrative head of Canada's Presbyteri- ans, Dr. Putnam says: "I see the moderator's role as that of a catalyst or en- courager. I'm no world- beater, but in my limited ca- pacities and by God's help I want to strengthen those things that are worth real preaching instead of the kind that people grow fat on; real outreach concern, whether it's over the back fence or overseas; the devel- opment of full lay responsibil- ity in every area of church life. "I'd like to awaken church people to just how much God loves them. You'd be sur- prised how many Christians fail to realize even this most basic of all facts. Small won- der they're spiritually dead." NO FALTERING Personal tragedy came to Dr. Putnam in January, 1971, when his wife of 26 years died after a six-month illness. They had five children. Wliile in Kingston he has conducted for the last eight years a Sunday evening church service over a Kings- ton radio station. A popular program, it has prompted many letters and other re- sponses from listeners. One listener wrote him: "You do not hem or haw or use 'maybe' or other filler. "I have always been doubt- ful of any man who has to search for his words or hem or haw, or who has to think to let the time go by so he docs not have to say too much."
