Rev. Ken Forster talks with a penitent in the renovated confession box at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Face-to-face confession adding the human touch Human encounter is being restored to the sacrament ot confession at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Lethbridge. Rev Ken Forster recently demolished the dividing walls in the church's west side confession box. "In ronlessioji. we come to celebrate God's love lor us, to seek his torgiveness and to acknowledge our need to become better persons." Father Forster said in an intemew Jesus himself dealt in a very human way When Mary Magdalene wept over her sin- lulness. Christ did not tell her to go home and pray to the Father lor forgiveness, nor did he tell her to hide behind a wall, but he forgave her in a most human way." Father Forster continued. Since 1614, Catholic confessions have been heard in a confession booth Penitents kneel beside a screened opening in one wall A priest seated behind the screen hears the confession, give.s briel words of consola- tion and advice, and bestows the sacrament of forgiveness upon the supplicant. Father Forster says he removed the wall trom one of two confession boxes at St Patrick's Church in an eftort to develop a more human response. Instead of kneeling, supplicants are invited to sit lacing him on a cushioned chair. "The idea is not new here." Father Forster said. "We already hear confession this way when visiting schools, nuirches in other centres are Irving I h i s a p p r o a c h although this is the first Catholic church to try it in .Lethbridge." Over the centuries. Father Forster said, a conception of (Joel's voice speaking in the booth sometimes developed among Catholics. He said God is always present in life, and the reason for confession is to provide parish members with an opportunity to celebrate God's love. Penitents conic to the priest as representive of the church community their sin has wronged People should come with a sense ot Father Forster said. "The church asks that they come if certain serious sins are committed. At Easter and Christmas there is special reflection on God's love toward man. On the whole, penitents should come because they know their need oi God's strength." God continues to speak in human forms today. Father Forster said. The sacrament ot confession is an extension ol his love. People need to offer more true forgiveness Father Forster said "It's easy to say you believe in Jesus. People say that, but Jesus remains 2.000 years removed from them Although faults and character differences are fre- quently accepted or tolerated, lew persons really forgive. Father Forster said. Miscreants are reminded whenever they repeat a mis- take. "Christians need to implore God to change their lives, to help them forgive one another as Christ forgave he said. Reform Church gives woman preacher nod By JON HALVORSEN PEARL RIVER, N.Y. (AP) "Christ was a radical. He spoke to women, He associ- ated with the oppressed, the underdogs of Joyce Stedge declares. Such sentiments aren't nor- mally associated with the old and sedate Reformed Church in America, which traces its origins in the United States to 1628. But Mrs. Stedge. 47, a mother of six whose soft voice and gentle manner belie firm Christian convictions, has suc- ceeded in getting the church to discard one of its oldest traditions. She is the first woman in the history of the church to be granted a licence to preach. She took the initial step last January when she went be- iore the district governing body of the church for exam- ination on her licence to preach and ordination as a minister, subject to her re- ceiving a "call" from a con- gregation. WOMAN LIKED She has already preached and conducted Sunday serv- ices at three Reformed Church Chuckles by CARTWRIOHT i i PULPITS CHURCH (c) C M A R i w r oi churches in New York and New Jersey whose congrega- tions were "very friendly and very open" toward a woman in the pulpit. But she dislikes the con- notations of "preacher." "I'm happiest in a dialogue situation where the con- gregation is not sitting pas- sively and being talked down to." she says. Final approval of her li- cence to preach came at the Church's general synod in Pella. Iowa, in June. But the former grade-school teacher who earned a master's degree in divinity from Union Theo- logical Seminary is not yet a minister. Under Reformed Church rules, an applicant is not ordered until after he re- ceives a call from a church. And each congregation is free to choose its own pastor. JOB-FINDING HARD "So if a church doesn't want a woman, she's not going to be says Mrs. Stedge, who figures "it's going to be a struggle" to find a job. Although eager to enter any form of ministry, as a church's associate minister, a hospital chaplain or a coun- sellor, she finds it hard to ex- plain her motivation. azarcncs hear report "1 keep being asked this and it constantly stumps me. I guess saying I've had a call i'rom God sounds so corny. I'm just going through the doors that open for me, that's the way I'm being lead. Four years ago. it would never have entered my head." Four years ago, she says, she was made keenly aware of what she considered to be dis- crimination against women by her church. The church was deciding whether to cos- ponsor a housing project for low-income families, but only men could vote on the issue because all the deacons and elders were men.
