Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Saturday, March Psychiatrist wants 6sin' recognized GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) Psy- chiatrist Karl Menninger says the old religious word sin has almost disappeared from modern usage but it remains a fact of the human condition that must be recognized. He says the realities of per- sonal guilt and sin have been glossed over as symptoms of emotional illness or environ- mental conditioning for which the individual is not consid- ered responsible, but he adds: "There is sin which cannot be subsumed under verbal artifacts such as 'dis- ease.' 'de- viancy.' There is immorality. There is unethical behavior. There is wrongdoing." Concert assists music fund FORT MACLEOD (Special) Trinity United Church was filled to capacity for a recent organ recital. The choirs of the United Church. Netherlands Reformed congregation and the Granum Reformed Church combined talent to provide 2'a hours of music. Proceeds of went to the Blum's Nursing Home organ fund. Jack Havinga was'master of ceremonies. We Will Be in Your Corner He calls for a reaffirmation ot the concept of sin and of personal responsibility for it. In a new book published by Hawthorne called Whatever Became of Sin? he declares: "If the concept of personal responsibility and answer- ability for ourselves and for others were to return to com- mon acceptance, hope would return to the world with it." ACCOUNTABLE FOR ACTS Menninger. who pioneered psychiatry in the United States and who founded the psychiatric centre in Topeka, Kan., that bears his name, says the "sense of personal moral responsibility is faint and apparently growing fain- ter." Challenging the views of be- havioral scientists that indi- vidual acts always are deter- mined by environmental or physical conditions, Men- ninger declares: "There is always some en- vironmental determination and always some individual determination and it is im- proper to exclude either." But he adds that the present popular attitude appears to be: "In the courtroom, everyone is responsible. Elsewhere, almost no one seems to be." Menninger says that just as it is inadequate for a clergy- man to give only pastoral counselling to a schizoph- renic, it is inadequate for a psychiatrist to treat a symp- tom like sleeplessness of a man involved in wicked ras- cality. "It does little good to re- pent a symptom, but it may do great harm not to repent a sin. Vice-versa, it does little good to merely psychoanalyse a sin and sometimes a great harm to ignore a symptom." He says recognizing the fact .of voluntarily willed sin is "the only hopeful since it implies the possibility of re- penting and correcting it. He adds: "The logical, reasonable, effective solution for tension reduction in such circumstances is to make atonement, as the theologians call it. or. as we say, by restitution, acknowledgment and revised tactics." As the situation now is, "vague, amorphous evil ap- pears all around with the presumption that "no one is responsible, no one guilty" and that there is "just noth- ing to do." He cites the traditional list ot deadly pride, lust, gluttony, anger, sloth, envy, adds some of his cheating, lying, says they result from a "wrong attitude an evil heart." "I'm aware that psy- chological jargon can be em- ployed which relates many of them to peculiarities of condi- tioning, special inhibitions, in- teractional incompatibilities and a dozen other technical constructs. I wouldn't dispute these. I just don't think they lead to proper steps for cor- rection." NOOK OPEN SOON! Coming to MEDICINE HAT Stop at the.. FRONTIER MOTEL Excellent Accommodations.

In the running Dr. Donald Coggan (left) archbishop of York, and Dr. Trevor Huddleston (right) suffragan bishop of Stepney in London, are among the churchmen most likely to replace Dr. Michael Ramsey, the archbishop of Canterbury, as head of the Church of England when Ramsey retires next November. Anglican leader may be foreigner LONDON (AP) For the first time in the 440 years since Henry VIII broke with the Pope, there is a long chance that the next spiritual leader of the Church of England will be a foreigner. Dr. Michael Ramsey, the Archbishop of Canterbury and 100th primate of all-England, is retiring Nov. 15 at age 70. The archbishop is spiritual leader of all the world's Angli- cans, including Episcopalians in the United States. Since those abroad now outnumber those in the Church of England, 38 mil- lion to 27 million, there is speculation that Dr. Ramsey's suc- cessor may come from outside Britain. A senior churchman from one of the Commonwealth countries would be most likely choice if a non-Briton were chosen. As "supreme head" of the Church of England, the Queen will name the new archbishop, but the choice will be made for her by the prime minister. Presumably he will still be Harold Wilson, a non-conformist, who will rely on the recommendation of his patronage secretary. There is growing opposition to this traditional system because it smacks of politics in religious affairs. Many of the clergy would like to choose their own primate, and Wilson's new La- bor government has indicated it will go at least some way to meet the critics. Despite the talk of a foreigner, the favorite for the ap- pointment is Dr. Donald Coggan, who as archbishop of York is the church's second-ranking spiritual leader. He has held that post since 1961. But Dr. Coggan is 64 and would have only six years to serve until reaching the retirement age. Bishop John Howe, the 54-year-old secretary-general of the Anglican Consultative Council and the main link for many of the church's worldwide contacts, is believed to be Dr. Ramsays's own choice. A wager on the winner LONDON (Reuter) The latest gambling trend in Britain is betting on archbishops. Three-to-one favorite to become the next Archbishop of of the Church of the Archbishop of York. Donald Coggan. Ladbrooke's. one of Britain's biggest bookies, has started taking bets on the "Canterbury Stakes." The wife of one candidate, Robert Runcie, Bishop of St. Albans. has condemned the idea. Rosalind Runcie said: "The whole thing is extremely em- barrassing. It's revolting to turn important church affairs into a horse race." Chapel becomes rehearsal hall 1244 -3rd Ave. S.

Holy Trinity, which has stood empty since it was declared redundant in 1959. will take on a new role next year as a rehearsal hall for the London Symphony and London Philharmonic Orchestras. Church authorities have, leased the building to a com- pany formed by the two orchestras at a nominal rent on condition that it is restored to its former state at the company's expense. Lack of a permanent rehearsal hall has been a handicap in a city in which five orchestras 'share the Royal Festival Hall's three auditoriums with chamber orchestras and other ensembles. With more than musical events a year at the festival hall and hundreds more in other parts of the city, orchestras rehearse wherever they can find space, often in widely separated areas and under less than ideal conditions. After four years" search, a committee from the two orchestras found Holy Trinity, which was the right size and shape, remote from aircraft and traffic noise and acoustically satisfactory. A fund-raising drive, aug- mented by donations from government and charitable in- stitutions, is providing the needed to refurbish the exterior, replace crumbling plaster and provide Jhe necessary facilities. Witchcraft devotees blamed for robbery By A. LESLIE HAYNES LONDON (Reuter) Young people who have switched from drugs to black magic and witchcraft in their search for excitement are being blamed for a spate of ritualistic robberies from English churches. Their growing interest in the black arts is seen by church leaders as a reaction against the materialism of the affluent society and revulsion against the churches. The discovery of witches' covens in what were thought to be respectable residential districts has resulted in many churches being locked when they are not being used for services. Thefts of valuable paintings. statues, processional crosses and altar candlesticks have been reported by churches. Some are believed to be the work of professional thieves but others have been attributed to black magic ritualists. A ciborium filled with consecrated communion wafers stolen from St. Albans Abbey 20 miles north of London and two candlesticks taken from the altar of a nearby Roman Catholic church were said by local clergy to have probably been seized for use in a pagan ceremony. An expert in occult subjects said the wafers may have been taken to prepare for a pagan ceremony on May eve April 30, a special day for devil worshippers. STUDY EXORCISM The Church of England is taking the witchcraft threat so seriously that several clergy who have made a special study of the occult have been asked by their bishops to give guidance on the power of exorcism to .remove "demonic possession" curses. In the west of England 200 people who believe they are the victims of witchcraft curses al- ready have sought exorcism from the rector of Wych Hissington who earlier had tried to protect valuable i-cclesiastical objects in his church by reciting the now rarely used "commination service" which places 10 curses on wrongdoers. But it did not deter a thief entering Wych Rissington church and stealing an ivory carving depicting two angels taking the body of Christ from the cross. Until recently a macabre tourist attraction in Wych Rissington was a museum of witchcraft including equipment which had been used in black magic ceremonies. The rector said public opinion drove the museum out of the village and it now is established in culture captures church' By GEORGE W. CORNELL NEW YORK (AP) After a month of first-hand observation of American religious life, a group of Christians from other countries says the U.S. church system is efficient but overly conformed to national attitudes. A "captive to the they put it. "You are in danger of becoming a state said Rev. Annette Nuber, a Lutheran pastor from Germany, citing the use of the national flag in churches as a sign of identification with the state. "A certain distance is necessary to keep the church as church and the government as government." However, the visiting team of six men and two women, whose intensive tour included rural and city congregations, said they were impressed by the magnitude and diversity of religious activity. PRAISES EFFICIENCY "Your church bureaucracy is commented Waldo Villalpando. an Argentine lawyer who also praised "the efficiency of the American churches." But he and some others said the U.S. institutions sometimes seem too smug and self-concerned. As Villalpando put it: "Too much money is dedi- cated to keeping up your build- ings and fashioning comfortable churches. You pay too much attention to domestic affairs and have little interest outside." An official of the Mekane Jesus Church in Ethiopia. Berne Beyene. said he was shocked by the fragmentation of American church people. "Everyone is segregated from everyone else, the young, the old. the black, the poor, the cities, the rural areas." The visit by the group, mostly from countries ordinarily regarded as mission areas, was sponsored by the U.S. committee of the Lutheran World Federation and the Lutheran Council in the U.S.A. The travellers made their reports to a consultation in Zion, III., attended by about 50 American church executives and mission board members. UCW meel in Calgary The annual meeting of the Aiberta conference of United Church Women was held last week in Calgary at Rosedale United Church Delegates representing Southern Alberta included Clara Thompson, Lethbridge; Ilia Skeith, New Dayton; Edith Whipple. Pincher Creek; Ruthea Piper, Foremost; Jean Schmill and Irene Welsh, Milk River; Barbara Tiegs, Brooks; Yvonne Newman, Medicine Hat and Maggie Oliver, Picture Butte. The visitors emphasized that mission work nowadays must be done in partnership with younger churches overseas and that U.S. and European Christians can no longer assume they are "parents'" to churches else- where. Renuka Somasekhr, principal of the Women's Christian College in Madras, India, said most American church people still seem to hold the "sending" view of missions. "We need to ask how Ameri- cans can become the recipients as well as the donors of mission she said. Cornwall County where the power of black magic is taken seriously, especially among the farming community. Gerald Ford 'a quiet Christian9 WASHINGTON American vice-president Gerald Ford is a- quietly committed Christian who prefers to share his faith by action rather than vocally, according to an article in a recent issue of Christianity Today. In interviews with Ford's son. Michael, a 23-year-old divinity student, and evangelist Billy Zeoli. an old friend and constituent of the Michigan congressman, the magazine pieced together a picture of a man living a quiet faith while faced with the greatest challenge of his life. "I can say he has accepted Christ as his savior and that he is a growing says Zeoli. To son Michael. Mr. Ford is a man "very committed to God." Zeoli. president of a film company and an evangelist working among professional football players, told the magazine that Ford "accepted Christ" at a Dallas Cowboys Washington Redskins pre-game chapel service Zeoli conducted two years ago. Ford was a football star at the University of Michigan and is still a fan. Young Ford, now attending Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Wenham, Mass., says the family finds "spiritual unity through prayer." INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.
