Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta V THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, March 16, Korean suggests mission review CALGARY (CP) Western churches should take a close look at what they are doing and where they are going in missionary work in developing countries, says a Korean theologian. World mission is essential to the principles of the Christian church, Dr. Hisup Kim said in an interview this week. But it requires active involvement and participation, not simply financial donations and charity. "When we say we are Christians, as long as our neighbors are suffering, even those who are living in a happy, affluent situation cannot be happy. "In this connection, the church in Canada has a role to fulfill the Christian commitment to the third world where people are suffering and being exploited. Dr. Kim, 28, was born and educated in Korea and has spent almost all his life teaching at universities there. Last September he accepted a 10-month post as a mission consultant to the United Church of Canada. The church is not a building or a social institution but a "place where people try to fulfill the idea of Christian principles and Dr. Kim said. "It has a responsibility to alleviate the suffering in third world nations through "social action, liberation movements and economic and political development." Westerners are reluctant to realize how much they exploit the third world and how dependent they are on those countries, he said, giving the Arab situation as an example. The church has not been totally free of the taint of exploitation, he said.

They marked the occasion with a special Chinese dinner followed by a joint service with the Occidental church members. Observing the first milestone gave Chinese Christians here an opportunity to reflect on what had already been accomplished, and to plan for the future. Membership has doubled; Sunday School has climbed from an initial three to 16, four Chinese women have been converted and a full-time pastor, Jim Chuang, 27, Was installed last August. For pastor Chuang and his wife Esther, 24, the celebration was two-fold what God had done for the church and what He had done for them. Mr. Chuang, who grew up in Tokyo and Esther, from Saigon were classmates at Prairie Bible Institute, Three Hills. Married upon graduation, the couple had planned to return to the Far East as missionaries under the Overseas Missionary Fellowship. Plans were foiled after Mr. Chuang learned his Taiwanian passport restricted him in Japan to merely visitor's privileges. Japan has recognized mainland China since Mr. Chuang came to Canada five years ago. After this disappointment came an invitation to pastor the new Lethbridge Chinese Alliance church, organized in January 1973. 'I'm so glad we had had this opportunity to be trained in the pastorate and learn more of Canadian customs before going to the Orient at a later Mr. Chuang said. The couple plan to apply for Canadian citizenship. Mr. Chuang values the opportunity to observe Canadian hospitality. "Here you entertain frequently and Casually whereas in Japan entertaining is somewhat rare. The family and outsiders are very obviously divided, partly because the Japanese home has no locks or doors, only dividers and there is very little privacy." The Canadian custom of giving bridal and baby showers, holding open house and house warmings is one he hopes to introduce when he returns to the Far East. Mr. Chuang feels it is a method of getting acquainted with one's neighbors. "I had never experienced Christian family living until I came to he "Suddenly, at PBI, I was surrounded by 300 families, working in harmony and love.: It was a tremendous experience for me." The 800 Lethbridge Chinese speak both Cantonese and Mandarin requiring, Mr. Chuang, who Mandarin, to have two interpreters, Sul-lin Mak and Ki Au. Mrs. Chuang, speaks .Cantonese, Mandarin, Hokkiennese and Chuckawnese dialects fluently. She is busy teaching Cantonese to her husband. Much of the couple's time is spent visiting in homes with Mrs. Chuang carrying the conversation whenever Cantonese is required. 1 "I've made so many wonderful friends in Lethbridge and being a pastor's wife keeps me so busy. I really don't have too much time to think about being homesick for Mrs. Chuang said! As for the future of the Chinese Alliance church, pastor Chuang is hoping more Chinese men will join and take responsibility. PASTOR JIM CHUANG Priest threatened after New York drug exorcism NEW YORK (AP) A Roman Catholic priest fighting drugs in his East Harlem parish in Manhattan used exorcism to try to banish the evil of addiction and he says the ritual brought some success and a threat. "It seemed nobody was doing what they should to fight said Rev. Phil Treanor. "We thought maybe God could do something about it." He held his first exorcism in May, 1972. Surrounded by other Roman Catholic priests and nuns, Father Treanor called on God to oust the devils of dope and then threw a vial of blood on the door of a building that had been a hangout for dealers and addicts. The biuod was thai of a dead addict and had been obtained from the medical examiner's office. Father Treanor, 33, .said he had some qualms about using real blood. "Yes, it was he said. "That was the point. Addiction is a very gory thing. It wasn't any more disrespectful than what happened to the kid whose blood it was. Drugs is really death, gore and blood." Father Treanor halted the exorcisms late in the year after the arrest of large numbers of drug pushers in the neighborhood. Meanwhile, he said, one of the local hoods first threatened, then tried to bribe him. Leaders recognized REGINA
