Stahl of regularly and devotedly attended the study little Presbyterian church on the main street of thcu in fact became a leader of the congregation and was routinely elected and re elected to its governing board Then one day the couple quit the church Why They didnt like the He was Stahl He started catering to the He put all the pews in a circle and tern in the He didnt want to even preach the Bible just all that stuff about Viet nam and sex and It got so Stahl and myself couldnt go and listen any could many others in the 400 mem ber1 After the Stahls 90 per cent of the other regulars stayed away Within the church was the town and the Theodore Sea was forced to quit and go to work in a travel Unusual But only in its For according to some church Ameri can religious institutions are suffering a new dropout crisis not by young liberals this old conservatives and not because they feel the church isnt involved enough in humanity these but be cause they feel the church is too As this change in church going seems to be confined mainly to urban where young modern ministers are in heriting congregations neither as youthful nor as In many of these piqued church members are withholding their usual physi cal and financial Nobody knows how serious the physical part of this has Polls indicate only that adult church attendance has dropped at least 2 per cent in the last two This means a minimum of too mil lion HOW CAN YOUTH COPE WITH GRIEF listen this Sunday to the Christian Science Radio Series for some interesting insights on this its on 4 Alberla stotionst 900 KC KC But the

churches are going too far afield in the area of social in A man is tired from a weeks work and when he goes to church he wants some he often gets razzle And I think whats happening is a back lash to And if thats what it the backlash is most definitely an interdenominational one Many Catholics resent the sweeping changes in theif mass I was a Chris topher was in and meatonFri day was Now its the othei way Its all happening too Many Jews grumble als seems to be done for the kids these And Protestant complaints by weight of are loudest of all ever hap pened to God All we hea about in my church today about According to church leaders such grumbling has ahvay been part of church change But today it seems to be es pecially demonstrative anc For example A progressiv pastor at the Re formed Church has so embi tered some of his congregatio that my two top contributors both got up during on sermon and left one ma has never come Other contributors in othe churches are leaving everj Because as one furioi easterner puts it Why shoul I donate my money so thes hippy ministers can keep o running down my governmen my nation and my way life If we are to do out1 job religious says th Nccs we
