The church council of the American Lutheran Church has reiterated ils position that ordination cf women is not a violation of scriptural teaching. The ques- tion of ordaining women has threatened to disrupt fellowship between the ALC and the Luth- eran Church Missouri Synod which opposes their ordination. The ALC said the question "lies within the freedom of the administration of the churches" and should not be divisive oJ fellowship in reply to the Mis- siuri Synod request to recon- sider its decision, Church have been re-presented and many pom: lo an under- ground church that luts surviv- ed the iTuneh of communism. In this country, there are thou- sands of missionaries who are eager to visit China, loiichinjj old liases of medical and educa- tional work, evangelistic out- posts and centres of public worship. And of all the groups permitted travel visas, these old China hands fas they are affectionately called by their mission boards l should rolurn u'i'li some of the most reveal- ing reports imagined. First of all, the preachers, pastors, medical technicians and educators were closer lo tiic Ctunese community t h a n any other group that natJ S" 'V- od in China. They were v., h the people m city and country- side they ministered to the whole family and were part the community where they served. Secondly, they spenk Hie lan- guage. These returning Western missionaries may have the op- portunity of seeking out o 1 <1 friends and associates, and with- out the interruption of language barrier, explore the world view of Chinc.se people today. Thirdly, the ecumenical movement had a good start in China before the door slammed shut over t wo d ecades ago. Priests from Africa and pastors from Canada and doctors from Brazil will represent a world Christian, community that need not bear all the wounds of the Chinese American disruption. Their insiphts and commentary wili be helpful to what the fu- ture holds. More, than a dozen years ago Arnold Toynbec, the British scholar and historian wondered if even the stern measures of communism could break the centuries old following of Con- fucius. This religion ethical system has been around for 2.500 years will it vanish after 25 years of Mao? Can Marx really top the basic doc- trine of Confucius which, says: "H there be righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. "If there be beauty In the character, there will be har- mony in the home. "If there be harmony In the home, there will be order in the nation. ulf there be order in the na- tion, there will be peace in the world." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
