A woman's touch was pre- dominant, with the exception of two men in the choir, in the all-female worship service conducted by lay women. Tight-wad diocese told help Indians Southern Alberta Anglicans lack missionary vision, and as a consequence face slow death as a church, the Diocese of Calgary 49th synod was told here Friday. "Lack of missionary vision is perhaps the most chronic cause of the demise, and this perhaps sums up the state of not only the finances of the church, but perhaps of the church itself dead or slowly James Askew of Calgary, diocesan secretary treasurer charged during delivery of a financial report. Meeting in Southminster United Church hall. 300 clergy Unity supported Unity in Christ, not organic union of denominations at this time, received support Friday at Diocese of Calgary synod meetings in Lethbridge. Delegates turned aside a confidential "questionaire" designed to give Bishop Morse Goodman a sampling of diocesan thoughts on church union. A directive from Anglican Church of Canada leaders in Toronto had re- quested "straw votes" not be taken at synod meetings. Rev. Allan Challacombe, Christ Church, Calgary, presented a motion against the questionaire. The motion was supported 102 to 59. The synod dissolved into a committee of the whole, allowing clergy and lay delegates to voice opinions on church union proposals now being considered by Anglicans, the United Church of Canada and the Disciples of Christ. Several speakers from the floor quoted a private docu- ment by the long range planning commission of the national executive. Delegates gave personal agreement to the wording which included the statement "In light of further possible hurt we cannot as the Anglican church go ahead with union plans, but should work together in every possi; blc way to continue and strengthen existing unity in Christ and lay representatives of parishes south of Lacombe heard Mr. Askew's lament. "When I speak to anyone, priest or layman, about the work required, for example, on Indian reserves and what it would cost to implement that work, the response is most heartening. Yes! That work must be done but it is astonishing how this enthusiastic response seems to dissipate at parish vestry meetings when approval of diocesan budget estimates are being discussed in the form of apportionment Mr. Askew said. A lively rebuttal of this evaluation ensued as several priests and laymen marched to the microphone requesting a detailed advance budget be provided by the finance com- mittee for circulation and study among all parishes prior to apportionment. "This is a million dollar lay delegate John Wrenshall of Calgary charged. "Yet we have no detailed budget in our hands for study." Archdeacon Murray Star, St. Luke's congregation. Red Deer, counselled synod saying delegates were chastising themselves. "The parishes of this diocese have not supplied necessary figures requested by the budget committee to make such an Archdeacon Star alleged. "Let us work together in love and goodwill." DECLINE Mr. Askew listed Sunday school as another battleground requiring Anglican attention in Calgary diocese. Parish reports note a drop in Sunday school membership from in 1970 to in 1973, Mr. Askew said. "Quite obviously some or even many will be quick to point out that we are com- batting so many other ac- tivities such as baseball, hockey, skating and skiing, which are apparently more important than church on Sun- day mornings. I used the word combatting and perhaps this is going to prove true, a battle must be waged and the church militant must be prepared to fight that battle if it is to sur- vive one of the weapons it will have to use is increased missionary vision; another is sacrifice." Mr. Askew said he intends to try and resume the practice of visiting deanery and parish meetings to discuss finances and related problems. "Every Anglican must share, even sacrifice, in diocesan apportionment. When a person buys a lottery ticket he looksx forward to assured security after winning a prize. I suggest investment of funds for Indian work com- es closer to home and will more likely determine our future Mr. Askew concluded. Bishop retires EDMONTON (CP) Rt. Rv. R. J. Pierce, 65, Anglican bishop of the Diocese of Athabasca for the last 14 years, has retired. His successor will be elected Nov. 26 at an Ed- monton meeting of the elec- toral college of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ruperts Land.
