-ftucson Bml ffitiztn C h u r c h e s PAGE 10 SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1976 TThey learn at f lock-in* By JEANETT RUSK CiUttn Religion Writer It's Friday at 5 p.m. at a local Catholic parish hall. Suddenly the doors are locked ifVith 17 high school age youths and four adults inside. ; The draperies are closed arid watches are surrendered. During the next 24 hours these people will participate in a spiritual and social retreat experience called a "lock-in" designed by the youth ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson. A lock-in is a practical alternative to the complexity of a parish retreat for high school youths. No camp has to be rented. No transportation has to be arranged. The bathrooms and kitchen present in a parish hall are the only facilities required. A lock-in by its very nature focuses on relationships, according to Sharon Komadina, an associate director of the diocesan youth ministry. "Confined to living in a parish hall, youths leam more about themselves and their way of relating to others," she said. The youth minister at St. Cyril's Catholic Church, Rick Kastigar, who has participated in two of the five lock-ins held so far in the diocese including one at St. Cyril's two weeks ago, explained that the relationship theme is three- dimensional. He said its three segments are "Who am I? Who am I in relations to others? Who are we in relation to God?" Kastigar, a 20-year-old University of Arizona student, said during the self-discovery part of the program each person makes a collage -representing himself -- on poster paper. The youths use any forms they want in the collage, from words, to art, to pictures cut from magazines, he said. "The kids gain a better understanding of themselves by putting something together on a piece of paper and stand- ing back and looking at it," Kastigar said. He said in the second part of the program concerning relationships with others the youths were asked to guess who each collage represented. A ceremony in which each participant lights his own candle from someone else's symbolizes both individuality and interdependence, Kasti-, gar explained. The part of the program dealing with relation to God is highlighted by a community- type Mass, shared in by the celebrant and the young people, he said. Affirmation As a recent "lock-in" closes, participants remind each other of their goodness by writing a note on a sheet of paper taped to another person's back commenting on a positive quality of the person. Church 45 years old Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of the mother church of the Southern Baptist denomination in Tucson, First Southern Baptist Church at 445 E. Speedway Blvd. A special service w i l l commemorate the occasion at 11 a.m. Ten members of the church who have belonged 40 or more years will be recognized, including J. W. Chappell who joined the church in its first year. First Southern was organized Feb. 8, 1931, with eight members. The congregation constructed its first building, on the present site, in 1938. This auditorium recently was remodeled into a chapel, which is to be re-dedicated at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow as part of the anniversary celebration. First Southern's present complex of buildings and grounds is valued at more than$l million, The church has had 13 pastors. The present pastor is the Rev. John McBain, who came in 1372. Sixteen Southern Baptist churches in the area have been started by First Southern. The Southern Baptist denomination has grown to 37 churches and missions in the Tucson area, with a combined membership of 13,500.

Veterans Blvd. The end of the world and the coming of Christ will continue to be hot topics as we near the year 2,000, a Biblical scholar told the Tucson Ministerial Association this week, but he was critical of those who play on these events and try to figure out how and when they will occur. "I 'believe in the coming oif the Lord," said Edward Blair, who was a Bible instructor for 29 years at Garrett Theological Seminary in Evanston, 111., "but I don't spend any time figuring out when it's going to occur. "I've seen too many schemes rise and fall. I just do the things the New Testament says I as a Christian must do, so that whenever it occurs, it won't catch me unprepared. "It's a bit of arrogance to think we have to know every. thing God knows. The how and when only He knows." Dr. Blair argued against the literal kind of interpretation of apocalyptic scriptures which Hal Lindsey used in his book "The Late Great Planet Earth" to set a timetable of events leading to an imminent second coming. He said Lindsey erred not only because he literalized metaphors and symbolism but because he took passages out of their historical context and applied them to the present. "You have to understand the issues of the age to understand Revelations," he contended. On the subject of biblical metaphors, he said he feels the Battle of Armageddon is not meant to be taken literally, but symbolizes the struggle between the powers of good and evil. Dr. Blair said books about the coming of Christ are everywhere and he is concerned because the conservative or fundamentalist publishers have a comer on the market. i "I plead with you not to let the fundamentalist who wants to literalize the scriptures run away with the field," he said. Spoke here Gary MacEoin, an 'Irish Catholic historian, spoke at a recent Presbytery de Crlsto meeting. A picture of the Rev. Hollis Poweli was mistakenly shown as MacEoin last week. Catholics start big fund push Scouting awards due Singer Ruby Brown, of Union Baptist Church in Phoenix, will sing at 9:30 and 11 a.m. services tomorrow at 22nd Street Baptist Church, 6620 E. 22nd St. On Boy Scout Sunday tomorrow five boys from St. James United Methodist Church will receive awards in a new experimental Scout program. St. James has been one of about 100 churches across the country testing a new program that divides the "God and Country" program into "God and Family" for ages 10 and 11, "God and Church" for 12 through 14, and "God and Life" for 15 through 18. Receiving awards at the 11 a.m. service will be Mark West, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merle West, for "God and Family"; Chuck Leek, son of Mr. arid Mrs. ' James Leek, and James Cemy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cerny, for "God and Church"; and Dean Cemy, James' brother, and Richard Murphy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Murphy, for "God and Life." A grass-roots fund drive involving more than 5,000 workers in 60 Catholic parishes is getting under way this weekend in the Diocese of Tucson. The 1976 Bishop's Charity and Development Fund Appeal, conducted annually since 1962 in the diocese, starts with "in-church" solicitations today and tomorrow. A team in each parish is planning, organizing and executing the various activities of the drive. The thousands of volunteers working on a. parishioner-to- parishioner basis are the key to the success of the fund drive, according to Robert L. Nordmeyer, diocesan director of development. Each Catholic family in the diocese was mailed campaign information about two weeks ago, but that was only the beginning of the highly organized fund-raising effort.

After a second solicitation at next weekend's Masses, the home-visit phase of the appeal will begin. Parish workers will contact fellow parish families to make a personal appeal for contributions from those who have not yet pledged. Families are being asked to give either one or two day's wages, depending on what they realistically feel they can afford, according to Nordmeyer. A suggested giving guide listing amounts of one day's and two days' wages for different income levels is being provided to each family. The general theme of this year's appeal is "Yes, Lord." The diocesan fund goal for 1976 has been set at $645,000 to be allocated to 19 Catholic services and agencies operating in the seven-county diocese. The fund drive will conclude about mid-March.
