Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 40 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 9, 1974 Fresh diet for Sally Ann ARNOLD BROWN TORONTO (CP) The man who calls himself God's quartermaster and who now heads Canada's Salvation Army will probably offer Sally Ann a diet of change. Change is nothing new for Commissioner Arnold Brown 61, recently appointed territorial commander of the Salvation Army for Canada and Bermuda. A reputation for shaking army traditionalists has gath- ered around him since he started his rise through the ranks of the army in Belleville, Ont., in 1935 When Mr Brown was the head of public relations at the army's international headquarters in London, he caused an uproar in 1965 for launching the advertising slogan, "For God's sake, care! Mr Brown finds nothing disrespectful in the slogan, which raised funds for a lot of army social work. His next change altered a long-standing tradition when he replaced the high-necked collar on the army uniform with an open-necked style with tie. "Who wants perspiration locked in around ihe neck9" he explained When Mr. Brown became chief of staff in London, he saw the British Salvation Army take on increasingly more social work. Under his leadership, it is likely the Canadian organization will do the same. The head of the army's Canadian members has been on a coast-to-coast tour and will follow with a trip to Bermuda to see things for himself. "We're all expecting him to make changes and we re looking forward to them although not everyone will agree with all of said Major Lloyd Eason, who works in the army's Toronto headquarters. But Mr. Brown's flair for innovation doesn't mean he plans to turn Sally Ann's structure inside out. "She is a pretty lively old he said. "If she is at all old, then she has certainly had a pretty good face- lift." At present, Mr. Brown said, he sees alcoholism as the No. 1 enemy and hopes more Salvation Army soldiers will be seen in Toronto taverns to spread the message. He also said any one of four rock-opera productions written by two British Salvation Army officers may become a box office success.

Faith is singular, but bishops are plural, divided by geography, temperament, interests, obsessions, problems and views on vir- tually every aspect of how to preach and practice the gospel. In some countries theirs is the majority religion, and in others they are almost outcasts indeed sometimes cast out or at least forbidden to preach. Some are conser- vative, other liberal. The 208 bishops and other church dignitaries who made up this fourth synod since Vatican Council II (1962-1965) advised Pope Paul VI on "Evangelization in the Modern World." In plenary sessions usually attended by the pope, and in 12 separate working groups organized by language (English, French, Spanish, Italian, German and they rediscovered the diversity of their experiences. and the concern common to them all. As Bishop Donal R. Lamont, of Umtah, Rhodesia, put it: "the sense of a growing gap between the Christian message and the disinterest of the world." CATALOGUE Poland's Cardinal Karol Wojtyla drew up a global catalogue of concerns African bishops, he noted in his summary of synodal views, are pushing for in- digenization incorporating local elements into church worship and structure. Asian bishops are concerned about relations with the major religions of their continent where Catholicism is a minority persuasion. Latin American bishops stress liberation from political, social and economic oppression. North American and West European bishops worry about secularization and the dangers of secularism. Bishops from Eastern Europe want freedom to preach the gospel. Going beyond these broad lines, individual bishops dis- cussed a wealth of themes: laity, women, youth, family, liturgy, spirtuality, mis- sionaries. Archbishop Angelo I. Fernandes of New Delhi was the first publicly to attack the synod's basic working document, calling its oc- casional references to the teaching of Vatican II "purple patches on a preconciliar gar- ment." "The old ecclesiology rears its head he warned. Others agreed that the church was too often taken for buildings and hierarchy rather than the people of god. Car- dinal Bernard J. Alfrink of The Netherlands suggested that the hierarchical structure of the church "can form an ob- stacle to proclamation of the gospel Singly and in concert, bishops pressed for greater freedom from Roman control. Antonius Maanicus, the Dutch-born Bishop of Bangassou in the Central African Republic, complained that when he wrote to Rome to argue in favor of married clergy, the reply was "patience." India's Archbishop Anthony Padiyara complained that Rome's insistence on centralized power could have a pernicious effect. Documents authorizing the dissolution of marriage were sometimes received "after the bond has already been dis- solved by God, through death of the husband or the prelate noted. "It is desired that the Holy See should intervene in general questions and not in particular ones for which local pastors are the best said the final report of a French language work- ing group. The German langauage group complained that "the church seems to smother freedom the life of the church does not enrich per- sonal life the church, over- ly involved in her ecclesial problems, does not reveal the presence of Christ and of the Holy Spirit." Italy's Cardinal Pericle Felici, a stalwart conser- vative, was outraged at the French language group for not reporting the good things done by the Catholic church, and for instead suggesting that the church was sometimes considered "the opiate of the people." The cardinal's conservative Latin speaking group held that "liberation from political, economic, cultural and other is im- possible if it is not based on the liberation from sin, which remains the prime objective of evangelization." The liberal wing, represented in an English language working group, turn- ed that suggestion on its head, concluding that "liberation from sin essentially contains liberation also from the social and political consequences of sin FLASHES While some bishops concentrated on the need for better preaching Archbishop Jean Zoa of the Cameroons suggested dropp- ing 20-minute sermons in favor of 2- to 5-minute "flashes" Canada's Archbishop Henri Lagare argued that "word and deed belong together as one unit; they nourish each other and constitute evangelization Archbishop Fernandes of New Delhi spoke determined- ly of bread now rather than pie in the heavens later: "You can't preach spirituality to an empty stomach." he insisted. Recalling the panoply of gifts which the Roman Catholic church offers teachings, sacraments, priests, bishops, Pope thq prelate noted that men of other faiths often lacked such wealth. He added: "sometimes they, having less, have done more: and we, hav- ing more, have done less."
