Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 10, 1973 Calvary road still thorny in Lethbridge By NOF.I- BUCHANAN Herald Stall Wrilcr Lcthbridge Christians are quarrelling over prc Easier meditations. The path through Lent to Cal- vary revealed fresh (horns this week following a meeting of Lcthbridge Ministerial Associa- tion. Archdeacon Cecil Swanson, interim minister at St. Angus- tine's Anglican Church, and Rev Robert Elliott, minister at Eouthminster United Church, pioposed some Lenten medita- tion plans to an association meeting Tuesday. The two clergymen offered Southminster Church as a meeting place for a "name speaker" they were pursuing. Their intention was to stimu- late the interest of other churches, and to offer several denominations the opportunity to fill the pulpit for other noon- hour meditations during the six weeks preceeding Easter. "I have one said Rev. Daniel Goldsmith, Christ- ian and Missionary Alliance pastor. "Is the association being in- vited to participate in an An- glican United Church event, or are you making a suggestion we can give to a committee to Meanwhile, thinking the asso- ciation would quickly grasp sponsorship of the idea, Arch- deacon Swanson had announced lo The Herald that the noon meditations would commence this week. Wednesday noon, Major Joan Pierce of the Salvation Army citadel; a reporter and a photo- grapher from The Herald; and one citizen stepped into St, Augustine's sanctuary. "Perhaps we planned this too a disappointed Archdea- con Swanson said as he met his congregation of only four persons. He went on, clearly expressing his annoyance at the apparent lack of support from other denominations. "I don't understand the clergy he said. "Not like it used to be. The city has grown. "Those Penlecostals, those Nazarenes! They're all too In- dependent. Their very survival depends on their individualism. Not one of their clergy was here last week for tha day of prayer. I'm going to write to the ministerial association and tell Ihem about this" Rev. Robert Deasley, Leth- bridge Nazarone pastor, said ha i was at Tuesday's association meeting. "I never said a Mr. Dcasloy claimed. "Perhaps when Archdeacon Swanson seeks sponsorship he means the other ministerial associa- tion." The Lethbridge Ministerial Association is chiefly a ship group composed of evange- lical denominations such as Evangelical Free Church, Penleeostals, Baptists, Alliance and Nazarene denominations. no second group form ally meets, there is a loose or ganization known as the inter fsith committee. Members in elude Catholics, Anglicans am United Church. However, in both groups there is some overlap. Several city churches arc striving to slee a middle course theologically. Rev. Milton Israelson, Lctl' bridge Pentecostal TabernacI minister, said he was not Tuesday's association meeting Association secretary treas urer, Rev. Keith Churchill First Baptist Church, sai realiy wasn't airytliin discussed at the meeting ,aboi a series of noon-hour sen-ices. Rev. Harold Jost, associa lion president and minister the Evangelical Free Churc said "there will be no Lenter noon-hour services under t! Lethbridge Ministerial Associ tion banner." Mr. Jost said the announc ment by Archdeacon Swansc to the media in this rega: was incorrect. THE IETHBRIDGE HER AID RELIGION Clergymen cautious about Beating flesh' Lethbridge clergymen have teen generally guarded in their comments tliis week on the moral dilemma of consuming human flesh in a life and death situation. A survey was conducted by The Herald following recent news reports of inquest testi- mony from Yellow knife, N.W.T.. where pilot Marten Hsrtwell, suffering Uvo broken ankles and a broken kneecap, ate the flesh of a nurse who died in a plane crash. "There are two premises in Remans said Rev. Nor man Carlson, minister of Beth- el Baptist Church. "Did Ma.'Iai Hartwsll act in a pure conscience? That is something only he Mr. Carlson said. In the area of influencing an- other's actions, Mr. llartwell I'.ad a social audience of two and they are all dead, Mr. Carl- son said. "11 is immaterial to ask tba world to judge him now." Mr. Carlson noted the deci- sion to attempt the mercy flight was in itself ail act of social conscience. "One should ask what pre- cautions did the pilot take to ensure the safe arrival of the Mr. Carlson said. Seventh day Adventist pas- tor, Rev. Arthur Hands, could not see the gates of heaven clang shut if an Adventist ate flesh in an extremo circum- stance. "Adventists don't eat any pork or ether unclean meats as recorded in Leviticus 11.

TORONTO (CP) The Pri- mate of the Anglican Church of Canada, in a letter to the editor of The Star, criticizes the "sen- salional reporting" by the media of the Marten Hartwell case. Archbishop E. W. Scott says 'a larger, and more critical is- sue" than the plane crash citient, "is the sensational re- porting and the stirring up of human feelings by the media On the one hand, and the kind of morbid curiosity which many persons have revealed on the other." "I believe that last week some of the media rerxirtlng (In all three of the mass newspapers, radio, television were guilty of sensationalism that added notliing lo our knowledge and played on th negative side of human curios his letter states. The archbishop comments o: the reported fact that Mi1.

This type of nor: vill be a useful guide for beha' or in 99 cases out of 100; but i .he hundredth it may well hat there are necessities in th situation which know no law. NO RIGHT TO JUDGE "There is a sense in whic society has no right to judge his particular case because the event took place outside of society; beyond radio help, be- yond communications beacons, apparently beyond rescue." The archbishop says the mass media insult "both themselves JWs say principle important By THE CANADIAN PRESS Canadian theologians, asked The Canadian Press, are not unanimous but most feel hat the eating of human flesh, it means the difference ictwccn life and death, is not morally wrong. Rev. Andre Naud, a Roman Catholic professor on the fac- ulty of theology at University of Montreal, said: "Personally, I don't think it's a moral question, but common ser.ce under such circumstan- ces, 'After all, it is a body with- out life." One Canadian church official who expressed opposition to eating of flesh in any circum- stances was Kenneth Little, pre- siding overseer of Jehovah's Witnesses in Canada.

Other comments obtained in interviews Ihis weak included the following: Rev. Robert Deasley, Nazar- ene minister "The whole thing is repulsive .to me.

Rev. Daniel Goldsmith, Christian and Missionary Alli- ance pastor: "To the best oC my knowledge, the word of God is silent on the subject of eat- ing human flesh. So am I!
