Calif The Reformed Church in America, whose best known preacher is Dr. Norman Vin- cent Peale of Marble Collegiate Church in New York, is thinking positively about drive-in worship ser- vices these days. In spite of national gasoline shortages and campaigns against noxious auto fumes, the Dutch-heritage denomina- tion has chosen drive-in religion as its major vehicle for congregational growth in the 1970's. A Reformed Church pastor. Dr. Robert Schuller. pioneered the first of his denomination's drive-in churches. Garden Grove Com- munity Church, here in Southern California in 1955 when he stood on the roof of of the snack shop of a drive-in theatre and preached to a congregation on wheels. The Reformed Church now has 15 drive-in churches and several more are being planned. Most of them are in Southern California and Florida where mild weather permits whorshipers to park and pray all-year-round. "The genius of these churches is not just that the people may sit in their cars." declared Harold Hakken. who heads church development for the church's western synod from his office in Anaheim. "Drive-in churches offer a total program, many of them more full-blown than the typical traditional church." Drive-in churches are gain- ing members while most Protestant churches are posting membership declines. In the Reformed Church in America itself, national membership has fallen 7.500 within the last four years to 221.000. But in Southern California and Arizona, where the denomination has 10 drive-in churches, total membership has gone up by more than Many of the drive-in churches, like Garden Grove Community Church, which "has members and is the largest of its type in America, are designed so that the same service is visible from pwes inside a sanctuary and from autos outside. Worshippers walking into Garden Grove Community Church must cross a moat. Several indoor fountains burst torth during hymns and ebb during the sermon. A few drive-in congregations schedule separate worship services on their property and at nearby dnve-in movie theares. Sound systems at churches with their own drive-in sec- tions pipe the service to speakers between parking stalls or broadcast it through car radios The Church of the Rockies in Denver provides portable heaters so year-round drive-in parishioners won't get cold teet. Ushers take collection baskets around the asphalt aisles at each ot the outdoor churches. In addition to persons un- easy about attending traditional religious services, drive-in services make churchgoing possible for per- sons who are crippled, men- tally retarded, ill or who are informally attired. It's not unusual for worshippers to roll up in camper vans or mini-homes here in Orange County, where Schuller's drive-in church is now augmented by Lake Hills Community Church, a spin-off congregation on a 54-acre site south of Lion Country Safari Down and out Historic St. Catherine's House, which accommo- dated the Edmonton diocese offices of the An- glican Synod until recent- ly, collapses under a bull- dozer. The land was pur- chased by the provincial government and the of- fices moved to a city church. Gospel meet on Sunday Regular monthly evangelistic rallies get un- derway Sunday at 7 p.m. in Lethbridge Salvation Army Citadel. Designed to make practical use ot local congregation talent in active Gospel programs, the meetings will feature music, films, discus- sion groups and speakers.

Theories as to why the world has suddenly swung back towards a belief in the supernatural are legion The consensus is that it is a sub- stitute laith. the outcome of modern man's disillusion with a civilisation that lacks ideals and his craving for another world of deeper meaning.

"The occult renaissance is a sign that the people are troubled." "The huge desire for occult says Professor Iden Goodman, who teaches a course on dreams at Califor- nia State University, "is a reaction to our grossly materialistic culture." STRATEGY CHANGE Writer-lecturer Hal Lindsey. formerly a national speaker for Campus Crusade for Christ, takes another view: he says that Satan changed his strategy around 1967. and now seeks to en- courage a belief in the super- natural Either way. the commercial aspects appear to be un- limited. It is estimated that between five and six million Americans are devotees of some cult, sect or society, with at least another 25 million sympathetic and interested onlookers. There are registered astrologers in the United States, and they claim some 40 million customers a year. It's a billion dollar business. Take Mr. Lindsey's book. The Late Great Planet Earth, which sees a battle ahead between demons and Christians on earth, culminating in the return of Jesus Christ to save man from self-extinction. It has sold three million copies since its 1970 publication, while the successor Satan Is Alive And Well On Planet Earth is well on the way to a million after a feu- months.

John Dillon, co-ordinator of the group known as GATT- Fly, said a letter pre- sented to the government accuses the federal government of dealing a severe blow to the aspira- tions of less developed countries for more justice in international trade. The group, sponsored by the Anglican, Lutheran, Presby- terian. Roman Catholic and United Churches, is objecting to the stand taken by Ottawa at the ISA talks in Geneva, which recently broke off without reaching an agreement. The group's main request to the federal government will be that Canada support a price level in the ISA that will restore the exporters' position, which has eroded through price declines and the devaluation of the Canadian dollar.
