Sunday concerns few A Iberians By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer The Sunday work situation appears to be of little concern to Alberta churches and clergymen. Gordon A. Walker, general secretary of the Lord's Day Alliance of Canada, Toronto, says his organization no longer has an Alberta representative. Previously, Canon Tom Leadbeater of Edmonton represented the program in the province. "Not many clergymen or churches are very much interested in the Sunday work Mr. Walker told The Herald in response to a written question. When approached by the LDA, ministers respond saying they are "too anxious about other things. Like the poor attendance at Sunday services. People aren't interested in sermons or worship these days, it seems." Mr. Walker says he tries to stimulate clergy interest by helping them focus more clearly on two different but close- ly related problems. "How many of your people would be at church if Sunday was just another work he asks clergy. "Your problem is making church relevant and meaningful to your people. If it is, they'll come. That is if they can if they don't have to go to work. So the other side of the problem is making sure that Sunday is kept free." Mr. Walker suggests clergy talk more often about the Christian mean- ing of Sunday. He likes to remind interested persons the organization came into being at the request of employees in the transport industry. An agreement between the Automotive Transport Association, the Ontario department of highways and the Lord's Day Alliance signed August 21, 1948, stated only "those engaged in the transportation of domestic milk to cities and towns" would be permitted to operate transport vehicles on Sun- day. Lord's Day Alliance officials have since reported to their membership growing movement of general tran- sportation vehicles eastbound on On- tario highways on Sunday. Dr. McClure plans to knit after Borneo mission visit ST CATHARINES, Ont. (CP) Dr. Robert McClure, the 73-year-old former United Church of Canada moderator, has slowed little since return- ing from 2Vz years in the North Borneo jungles. He still startles a news con- ference. At the recent 40th general Mennonite Church conference here where Dr. McClure was a guest speaker, he burst into an interview room, shook hands, collected names and launched into a half-hour monologue on his recent adventures. After 40 years in China, more than a dozen in India and assorted world trips, Dr. McClure, thought of by many as Canada's foremost medical missionary, describes himself as a "keen chaser of adven- ture." "I've never looked on my medical education as any- thing other than to help me be useful in other parts of the world Since completing his term as moderator, Dr. McClure has worked in a 77-bed Ma- laysian jungle hospital among the Sea Dayak peoples, until only two decades ago among the most fierce and primitive headhunters in the world. For centuries the Sea Da- yaks took heads because of tradition, but a brush with civilization and a few cou- rageous missionaries taught them a new life-style, said Dr. McClure. Canadians can learn much from peace, honesty and how to cope with high-density living. He was surprised on his return to Canada to see children quarrel on a bus. "For 2Vz years I had never seen kids squabble. You never Marriage course for Lethbridge hear it, it isn't done These are the most peaceable people in the world The 24-inch machetes ear- ned by everyone over the age of eight, once used for cutting heads, now are used for whittling and carving dugout canoes. The people of Sarawak are experts in high-density living, said Dr. McClure. Their long- houses, "sort of high-rises set on average 24 fami- lies, the largest dwelling a quarter-mile long housing 80 families. "They've been living this way for 400 years. They ac- tually have peacefulness in high density and, let's face it, our high density is not that hot Dr. McClure's work in Sara- wak included male and fe- male sterilization as the tribal peoples were eager to hold down their population. He also was involved in ag- ricultural projects, including the planting of a strain of rice which can multiply yields ten- fold But Dr. McClure's biggest concern remains the disparity between rich and poor na- tions. "There's a chance 80 per cent of the world will not for- ever be happy with 20 per cent of the world's contented. The world is shrinking too much for us to continue the way we're going. People won't tolerate op- pression by white people of the world and they can make A bombs too." Christian missionaries are constantly challenged by peo- ple overseas wanting to know if they have anything to do with the making of atomic bombs, where they are dropped, placement of nu- clear submarines or the mul- tinational corporations that swaoip these little countries, he said It's that message Dr McClure has for his scheduled addresses. "I can speak to service clubs on mission work without irritating them When you're my age you can do this sort of thing About the future? "I think I'll take up knitting When you're an old man of 73, you're not thinking about the just try to get it on through the night." Nobody believed him Christian marriage preparation courses may become a normal requirement before weddings in major Lethbridge churches, Rev. Frank Lee of St Augustine's Anglican parish said this week Catholic, Anglican, United, Baptist and Presbyterian clergy are jointly sponsoring establishment of the Lethbndge Pastoral Institute. Other denominations have already expressed verbal sup- port for the program and may tie in with the course as it is developed here, Mr. Lee said The institute is to be patterned after the Pastoral Institute in Calgary which offers a wide range of professional counselling and education programs. Mr. Lee said the Lethbridge institute will commence Oct 20 with a pre-marriage and marriage enrichment course conducted in Lethbridge Separate School Division of- fices. The program is to be repeated in February March and again in April May. The institute will offer one to one personal counselling, group work encompassing personal and spiritual development, and a "band aid ministry for emergen- cies and special problems needing fast practical assistance. Designed to become fully self supporting, Mr. Lee said the institute will eventually employ its own full time director A sliding scale of fees will determine cost to clients. The pre marriage course has been set at per couple. Meal service will be available during longer sessions. The Oct 20 program operates from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Course topics include com- munication and the revolving relationship, sexuality and family planning, financial and legal responsibilities, chang- ing roles and lifestyles, and the spiritual dimension of Christian marriage. Lecturers include Dr. Allan Parry. Rev. Bill Kelly, Lloyd Johnson and Calgary Pastoral Institute workers, Rev. Bill and Connie Porter. Ralph Thrall is ad hoc chairman of the Lethbridge institute which is in the process of registering under the Alberta Societies Act On location Dr. Robert McClure in Borneo Problems trouble Mormons The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints has just opened a glistening new temple in Washington. D.C. Four soaring spires reach into the sky, perhaps symbolic of the high goals of the Mormon community, here and overseas. For most of this century, the focus of concern and public relations has been at Salt Lake City and the famous Taber- nacle that has become a western land- mark, with its first rate choir. The new centre is clearly a move by the Church of Latter-day Saints to reach the millions of Washington visitors with their message of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. In this era of fascination for the strange and bizarre in religion {witness of the two hour sermon in Madison Square Garden by Rev. Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church) the Mormons may indeed be looking to a major breakthrough and acceptance in Western culture In Christian circles, the Church ol Jesus Chnst of Latter-day Saints has never gained approval The theological differences have been too vast (and early Mormon practices unacceptable) for mainline denominations to admit much common ground- Most Christians admire the high values on family life prized by the followers of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, but are bewildered by the concepts of baptism and sacrament as expressed in Mormon practice. Commentary by DAVID POLING NEA Religion Writer Presently the Church of Jesus Chnst of Latter-day Saints is facing some serious questions withit its own ranks. In a church completely dominated by "Toe Twelve" and ruled forcefully by the most senior of citizens, younger members are expressing quietly these concerns 1 The racism of their theology that black people have no true par- ticipation m the life of the church or in the teachings of their faith. There is no way that this doctrine can be justified in contemporary life Until this religious group has a the stress and inherent conflict of this point will be sure to grow 2. The place of women In a male- dominated church. Mormon women have been placed in a secondary role. Joseph Smith preached and practiced plural marriage. This was finally out- lawed by an act of Congress, and aban- doned by the church in 1890. Yet today Ore leadership of women is nowhere to be found in key positions or posts It is hard to imagine significant growth in this century for a denomination that has no opportunity for women. 3 The soaring divorce rate in Utah Younger Mormons are alarmed at the apparent high rate of divorce for the Zion state of Utah Christian .pastors in the state report a staggering counseling load, dealing with couples of all faiths who are caught up in the turmoil of domestic problems This affects the Mormon Church seriously, for it knocks at the door of their male domination theory and practice. While many are saluting the worship center in Washington, many more are looking for the answers to new ques- tions plaguing the church in Utah.
