In recent weeks, several controversial items have stirred the religious community in Southern Alberta. Today, Herald religion writer Noel Buchanan shares his observations and comments in a two-part analysis: What can Sally Ann do to please a Cod so pure? Saturday, StpttnUw LETHBRIDGE HERALD-13 NORBRIDGE COMMUNITY CHURCH With venereal disease in 1973 leaping 22 percent over the number of cases of gonorrhea reported in Alberta during 1972, a word of abstinance from the Salvation Army could hardly seem more timely. The question that arises in the wake of last week's statement by Salvationist leaders is what action can be taken. All very well to preach fidelity over a pulpit; the world still turns and the eyes of men and women will continue to behold whatever pleases and stimulates them. The Salvation Army no doubt will do further study on its position paper on pornography. National information officer, Brigadier William Hosty of Toronto, freely admitted the Army is only at a starting point, expressing concern about offensive literature and entertainment. The Army operates a number of hospitals across Canada and around the wrold. Could it be possible some serious research might be performed in these wards, providing medical and psychiatric reference to support the army's concern over visual influences on mind and behavior? "I do here and now declare that I will abstain from the use of all low or profane language and from all impurity, including un- clean conversation, the reading of any obscene book or paper at any time, in any company, or in any place." The Articles of War And why not, at these same hospitals, a clinic for sex counselling? The Army has an international reputation both as a Christian mission and humanitarian organization. Some older officers may still start to solve individual problems with a Bible pounding. However, the new general, Clarence Wiseman, has hinted he is receptive to young ideas. Why not carefully select a few specialist volunteer officers and provide them with special sexuality counselling not only the classical Christian background to human relations, but also everything medical and sociological available.? For the present, short-term seminars at universities and other institutions are the extent of an individual officer's special counselling skills. Since most Army officers are frequently moved geographically and often change service roles in the process from church pastorate to jail chaplain to senior citizen's home administrator to welfare officer a few specialists might improve the Army's national service in highly sensitive and special areas of life. It is relatively easy to say all Army officers conduct interviews on a confidential basis. That is a normal role understood by most faiths. The alarming truth is more and more church leaders know leading members of their own congregation don't have complete confidence in them, and a lot of folks needing one sort of help or another are keeping it bottled- up. What does the Army do in a case like Lethbridge where the corps is administered by two very capable women officers? Some individuals are and do freely communicate all and any problems to the women. But there will always be some masculine needs (and not just sexually-oriented problems either) that few men will ever approach a woman about. Curiously, the Army statement appears somewhat ignorant of political lobbying power. Brig. Hosty said the Army is counting on "an accumulation of individual voices eventually having some effect on power structures in our society." How many Salvationists and other Christians are seriously prepared for an intelligent dis- cussion of films and books with any commercial management? A reality Salvationists and other Christians may soon have to face more openly is that they constitute a minority belief and if their conduct is consistent with their preaching, toes must be trodden upon. Too often, in ef- forts to remain conciliatory and peacful, Christians have kept their mouths shut. It will take all the wisdom of Solomon to launch an intelligent confrontation, but it's either put up or shut up. 'Sheep stealers' spread the faith Nothing helps like a little persecution. Currently, several Southern Alberta church groups are eyeing the fields round them, considering the time a season for harvest. And with a lively debate here and there, just Southern pastors at C MA meeting More than 400 delegates from across Canada attended the second Tri-District Conference of the Christian and .Missionary Alliance denomination in Regina Sept. 5-9. Southern Alberta representatives included Rev. and Mrs. Daniel Goldsmith and Mr. and Mrs. Chris Overn of Lethbridge; Rev. and Mrs.- Edward Carlson of Medicine Hat: Pastor Les Sather of Sparwood and Rev. and Mrs. Dennis Philips of Elkford. Dr. Keith Bailey, vice- president of C and MA North American ministries, was the main convention speaker. Theme for the session was "Growing With Highlights included a women's missionary prayer fellowship rally attended by 325 ladies, and a Sunday evening service of witness at Regina Centre of the Arts. The Christian and Missionary Alliance is composed of 21 districts in North America. Three of these districts are in Canada. The Regina meeting was only the second time in the 87-year history of the denomination in Canada that all three districts met together. The Canadian branch received its charter in 1972 and plans further Canada- wide conferences in future. The convention re-elected Rev. Roy Mclntyre of Calgary to a sixth three-year term as district superintendent. Nazarenes prepare for youth ministry Teachers and officers of Canada West district of the Church of the Nazarene will meet for an intensive training conference in September.

Speaking from his summer residence this Alban Hill town, the Pope reaffirmed the Roman Caiholic church's "unambiguous" opposition to abortion, sterilization and contraception." "We must put man on the palh of responsible pater- nily." he said. "The problem of birth control as certainly a complex problem.
