Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 12, 1970 This Is A Time For Action The Church And Labor By DAVID POLING President of The Christian Herald Assn, fFHE labor movement, 1 i k the Church, is part of th American Establishment. Sur rounded by large member ships, endowed with billions o dollars, welcom.ed at the Whit House and the bank, the labo movement can safely ignor the poor, the black and th deprived. In other days i struggled bravely for ectmomi justice and a broad application of brotherhood in the Republic The slighted, beaten and put down laborer, whether he be in the mines, the mill or the lum ber camp, could look courageous union leaders foi attention and support. In some ranks of the Christian com munity he heard those whi were alarmed at injustice am enraged with poverty. While the Church was generally ab sent from the picket line or Many within the missionary movement, such as David Liv- ingston and Wilfred Grenfell, spoke of a salvation that reach- ed the whole man his physi- cal health, his civil rights, his just wages and his eternal re- demption. When Robert E. Speer wrote his report on overseas work, he noted some activities of cer- tain "Christian" commercial organizations in the Far East. In one instance he printed part of an annual report that espe- cially burned him: "The profits of fac- tory surpassed million. Foi the past two years it has been running night and day will scarcely any intermission. The number employed is ant Hie following is the wage table "Men 15-20 cents. Boys above 15 yrs., 10-15 cents. Girls above 15 yrs., 5-10 cents. Small boys and girls under 10 years, 3-10 cents. "The working hours are from a.m. to p.m. No meals are provided by the factory. "It will be seen that the com- pany is in an exceptionally fa- Lack Of Interest vorable position with an abun- dant supply of cheap labor to draw from. The annual profits have exceeded the total capi- tal on at least three occasions." (From "What Are Missions E. Speer) It is true that his reporting covered the harsh days of 1930-1WO. Yet there are mil- lions of people in this country this year who do not share in the fruits of their labor or the wealth of this vast country. The migrant labor community has been ignored and abused. Hundreds of thousands of youngsters do not receive even marginal medical or educa- tional their fami- lies provide the manpower that puts the fruit and vegetables on our tables. You can't ever talk about sal- vation wihtout seeing the whole person. The labor unions and church- the boycott, it did produce some able spokesmen and public leaders who supported legislation favorable to unions anc the working family. Much of the Christian's concern for labor (which bordered on idealism of farming and agriculture) was directly related to the life of Christ and the laboring disciples. Jesus moved easily among the laboring peasants, the road builders and shepherds and fishermen. That the Christian faith should always be at home with such people and their aspirations should be no surprise (CP) Arcr bishop Howard Clark, recent! retired primate of the Anglica Church of Canada, says he i disturbed by the lack of inter est in plans to amalgamate th Anglican Church, the Unite Church and the Christia Church. Writing in the current issu of Canadian Churchman, th church's national newspaper ;he archbishop says work 01 tiis union is progressing well. But he adds: "What is dis turbing is the widespread lacl of interest, lukewarmness 01 real opposition to union." He said church officials across the country have aunched discussion programs o set forth the benefits of a union. In another article in the pe-icdical, Archbishop G. F. C ackson of Rupert's Land says he Anglican Church shoulc tart spending mor.5 money on a n a d a s North instead it away" on unsu cessful foreign projects. He said many ministers ai leaving the North because the are underpaid, but church a tivity in the region is beam ing increasingly more impo tant because of industrial d es need to lorget tneir build ings and pension funds and Mi-e ami conventions for awhile anc y give direction and energy to c- those forgotten laboring peo-i- pie. Jesus was one of them r- and you can't serve Him out looking after His people. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Scienc Imnian H.
