6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 11, 1971 Society feels personal morality is unnecessary By DAVID POLING T7THICAL stand a r d s are taught in the home, for- malized in the Sunday School and tried out in the market place. The proving ground for every person is in tlie living of his convictions, lie expression of words into actions. Yet many people today feel that mass society has made un- necessary a system of personal morality. The giant utility, the massive corporation, Uie sprawl- ing central government seem immune to either the individual or his ethical practices. The re- sult is seen in shallow perform- ance, corporate lying and per- sonal corruptness. Several airlines I know constantly lie about the arrival and departures times of their flights. And in winter, they lie twice as often. Reason: They would rather have you late Some agreement on church doctrine WINDSOR, England (Renter; Substantial agreement on the doctrine of the Eucharist has been announced by an Angli- can-Roman Catholic commis- sion which has been in private session here since Sept. 1. A international commission of the two churches was set up three years ago by the Pope and the Archbishop of Canter- bury, Dr. Michael Ramsey, to prepare the way for organized unity. An Anglican member, the Bishop of Hipon, Rt. Rev. John Moorman, described the an- nouncement as "the most im- portant statement since the Ref- ormation." The Eucharist covers the con- secraicd elements in the mass or holy communion service. In their joint statement the 18 representatives of the commis- sion said: "We believe that we have reached substantial agreement on Ihe doctrine of the Eucharist which is of vital importance to Anglicans and Roman Catho- lics." Details ot the agreement were not disclosed. It now will be submitted to the authorities of the respective churches. The agreement is considered an important stage in the talks on unity. The commission likely will next concentrate on church ministry. CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE SALVATION HEALING MIRACLES Pallor: Rev. T. W. Roycrofl Corner 5lh Ave. and 131h 51.

YOU ARE INVITED Bible sociely meet, Sept. 21-25 In September, for the i i r s I time in its 25 years' history, a meeting of Hie United Bible So- cieties will be held in Canada. Sept. 21-23 sixleen people from ten countries will meet at the Aurora Conference Centre, 30 miles north cf Toronto. Dr. Lalon E. Holmgren of the American Bible Society will preside. Dr. Olivier Beguin ol Switzerland, general secretary of Ihe United Bible Societies, has staled lhat the mam pur- pose of the meeting is to lay plans for tlic 10-year program i cf advance lhat will be launch- ed in the coming year. Dr. Ken- neth G. McMillan, General Sec- relary of the Canadian Bible Society, a member of the Exec- utive Committee will be in at- tendance.

Even- tually they are lost, broken, re- stolen. Cost is in excess of per cart and I suspect lhat my food bill is paying for Ibis sub- urban stealing. Write lo your editor and tell us how to stop this one. Not long ago, William Ander- son, editor of S I e r e o Review, wrote a long piece on the eth- ics of taping, He noted lhat he was having a correspondence batUe wiLh many of his readers who disagreed with his stand lhat privale tape recording wa as bad as the commercialism the tape pirales those wl: sell unauthorized tapes, cas- settes and records. "The subslance of many of the letters lhat aimed to set me straight might best he couched in the adjust able frame of a popular aphorism: 'If God didn'l want us to lapc recordings, he wouldn't have given vis tape recorders.' Olh- ers tried to explain to me how buying a recorder and raw- tape somehow pays for the time, effort and expenses of recording by soloists, or- chestras and record com- panies." Then Anderson made a point not often heard from the mar- ket place: "The subject cf eth- ics has been a vexing question ever since Eden, when Adam tried lo put the blame on Eve, and most people since have proved (o be no better al it than he was. The sue the-insur- ance company syndrome and hotel-towel and restaurant-asli tray "souvenir hunting" arc most certainly ethical no no's (in (lie Judco-Christian Iradi- tion, at least) but on this level the common man has solved the riddle of universal guilt: "If everybody does it, it must be all right." I don't know if the readers of Stereo Review realized what a basic course in ethics was being offered, but it struck home to this reader. Closed Anderson: "My own feeling is thai Ihe eUucal sense is a talent as rare as any other. It can be devel- oped if you have it; you will remain a bumbling amateur moralist if you haien't. And like all [rue talents, those who possess it at the level of genius are extremely rare which accounts for the shortage of saints." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Wis., Fol- lowing an attempt to postpone action for two years, the 49th regular convention of The Luth- eran Church-Missouri Synod voted strongly here lo au- thorize the training in Canada of Missouri Synod pastors when it agreed to establish a chair ol theology at Lutheran Theo- logical Seminary, Saskalcon, Saskatchewan. Canadian Missourians have for some years maintained lhat training was needed in a Cana- dian context and culture so pastors would be better able to serve on the Canadian scene. Up to now all pastors receive theological training at the Mis- souri Synod seminaries in eilh- er St. Louis, Missouri or .Springfield, Illinois. No date has been set for the establishment of this chair. In other aclion on Canadian affairs, the convention reaf- firmed 1969 convention aclion to "pursue Ihe quest for Luth- eran unity with the Lutheran Church in America-Canada Section."
