Friday, June 28, 1991Learning to relax Religion in brief
By th* REV. KENNY WOOD
Harry Langendorf Pelican was no ordinary bird. That’s what his father Charlie saw the minute he was bom. So he made great demands on Harry especially in the art of flying.
Harry’s mother,! the direct opposite of Charlie, spent' only a few days with her son in his early birdhood.
They mostly sat together and watched the sun.
When she died,
After that, all Harry did was work on his flying with his father. He could fly higher and dive faster than any bird in 30 million years. But that wasn’t enough for Hamy. He believed that the pelican goal was to reach perfection; and to never be satisfied with anything less.
Harry Pelican married Samantha, the most beautiful girl pelican, they had two children — Edward and Mary. Harry pushed them harder than the other pelican fathers. Whenever they complained because they wanted to have fun, or just wanted to rest, Harry told them there was no time to waste.
One afternoon on a family trip to the coast. Young Edward challeneged
his father to a dive from the highest cloud. Harry said they were up too high to dive, but Edward insisted and started his dive. Harry chased after him hoping to catch him, but found Edward dead in the water. Harry grieved for weeks over Edward’s death — he fealt guilty that he had never really gotton to know his own son.
When Harry came back home to the flock he was greeted by the other young pelicans, each telling him about the records they had broken. They wanted his help and his skill. But Harry had changed. He mostly spent his time with the sick and the old and the clumsy ones in the flock that he had never noticed before. He learned to relax. On his dying day he looked at the sun for a final time and thought back on his life and said MI am grateful.”
I read this story by James Kava-naugh in the early 70s and have never forgotten it. It means more to me now that I’m learning to relax and enjoy the world around me.
Deep and lasting self-satisfaction does not come from our solo performances however perfect. Only God’s love goes deep enough. It’s easy to outrun it. As Ferris Buellcr said, “Life goes pretty fast, and if you don’t slow down sometimes you’re liable to miss it” /
There’s an awful lot not to miss.
First Baptist Church of New Braunfels will present “I Believe in America” patriotic services this Sunday.
At 10:45 a.m. Wilhousky’s arrangement of the Battle Hymn of the Republic will be performed by the Sanctuary Choir. The message will be delivered by the Rev. Dr. Gordon Graham. The second service begins at 7pjn.
The Rev. Raymond D. Reich, pastor of Cross Lutheran Church, Kristin Boelke, pre-school and day care director, Mr. and Mrs. J.R. McDowell, and the Rev. and Mrs. Albert Wuensche, members of Cross Lutheran Church attended the 52nd Convention of the Texas District of the Luther an-Church-Missouri Synod June 20-24 in Dallas.
The Texas District encompasses the state of Texas and numbers 350 congregations and 507 pastors serving 100,000 members.
While in session, the convention elected a new president, the Rev. Gerald Kieschnick of Austin. He is the son of Mrs. Martin (Elda) Kieschnick, who lives in New Braunfels and is a member of Cross Lutheran Church.
Among the resolutions passed at the convention:
• Reiterating the belief that God is the Creator of the universe and all life.
• Reaffirming the spiritual prohibi
tion of the sin of homosexuality.
• Encouraging congregations to continue outreach ministries.
• Reaffirming a strong pro-life position.
First United Methodist Church of New Braunfels is sponsoring a blood drive Sunday, June 30. The South Texas Regional Blood Bank will be accepting donors from 8:30 a.m. to I pm. in Wesley Hall at the church.
Wesley Hall is easily accessible from the church's Mill Street parking lot. Free cholesterol screening is available for donors. For more information call Cari Gray at 620-4272.
VALLEY FORGE, Pa.—The general secretary of the American Baptist Churches says Southern Baptist withdrawal from a joint Baptist religious liberty lobby is a "rejection of centuries of Baptist history and tradition."
The Rev. Daniel Weiss referred to the action of the Southern Baptist Convention in ending any funding of the Washington-based Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs, which for 50 years has represented eight Baptist bodies on church-state issues.
The Southern Baptists in 1990 cut its yearly allocation to the committee from $400,000 to $50,000, and the remainder also was terminated at a Southern Baptist convention this
month in Atlanta. Controlling fundamentalists have criticized the committee for opposing school prayers, among other things.
Weiss said the committee has been "an eloquent and courageous mouthpiece for religious liberty" and that its postilions "have been well within the mainstream of Baptist thought and practice."
Religion takes back seat
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Religion has been demoted to a "back seat" in the nation's media, particularly on television, says Robert B. Beusse, a communication consultant.
Beusse, who for IO years was national communications director for U.S. Roman Catholicism, said at the University of Dayton, where he received its religious communications award:
"Current studies show that most people in the media tend not to have a religion. They’ve shied away from religion and its values."
JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. (AP) — Protestant clergywomen who are lesbians have led in launching a movement called Christian Lesbians Chit Together, or CLOUT, to "empower our lesbian sisters and ourselves to challenge the churches."
A group of 113 clergywomen and lay women from 14 denominations signed an organizing statement of
commitment, declaring that "we are committed especially to the empowerment of ordained lesbians and d ose who are being rejected for ordination because they are lesbian."
A CLOUT convention is planned in November, organizers said. The Rev. Carter Heyward, an Episcopal priest and professor at Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass., said: "For the churches to coerce either celibacy or silence is morally unacceptable for us."
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Former United Methodist Bishop James Armstrong, who once rocked U.S. Protestantism by quitting a top ecumenical post because of marital problems, is becoming a Florida pastor.
Armstrong’s appointment to lead the First Congregational Church of Winter Park, Fla., a congregation of the United Church of Christ, was announced at the United Methodist Rocky Mountain annual conference here.
Armstrong, who for seven years has been a professor at the United Methodist-related Iliff School of Theology in Denver, said, "It will be
marvelous to return to pastoral ministry, though in a sense I’ve never left. I will be doing what I love most, and probably do best."
