In Et Salvador Program Church Council Relief Efforts Are Defended Vaeatioa Bibb School f Hi DAILY NtW§ r Hunirrtfltfen, fttottn* uVilan and Satfafi, pfa By DAVID E. ANDERSON (UPI Religion Writer) Church leaders whose denominations are in the National Council of Churches and contribute to the interfaith agency's overseas relief work are receiving a Memo supporting the Council's relief effort in El Salvador. the Council's Church World Service has appealed to metflber churches 'for $1.5 million to support the work of the .Salvadoran Ecumenical Association for Humanitarian Action and Service. The memo defending 'the Council's policy, as well as the Salvadoran ; Ecumenical Association, was prompted by charges that the Salvadoran group was a front for the leftwing guerrillas in El Salvador and that the money ostensibly collected for humanitarian relief is going to finance the guerrillas. In the United States, churches have been virtually united in opposing current U.S. policy toward El First Baptist Church 6th'8Mifflin Huntingdon Rev.

Sermon: "Naked and Homeless" —Matthew 25:31-46 Nursery Provided For Pre-School Children Salvador, particularly the sending of U .S. arms to aid the civilian-military junta in power. Taking their lead from the leadership of the Salvadorafl Catholic church, the U.S. religious community has maintained that the arms sent to El Salvador are being used by right-wing forces in the military to murder leftist reformers and peasants, especially those .In the'church sympathetic to reform. Recently, however, .the newly created Institute on Religion and Democracy criticized the National Council of Churches for Its position, arguing that it .Was exploiting U.S. religious organizations to build support for the revolutionary movement in El Salvador. .The Institute, relying on documents released by the State Department and said to be captured from communist guerrillas, argues that It appears the creation of the Salvadoran Ecumenical Association may be under the control of the leftist guerrillas. The memo being circulated by the National Council of Churches denies the charges. "There is no evidence that the Salvadordan Ecumenical Association is misuing Us program money," said the ReV. Oscar Bolioli, Latin America director of the council. "This is not the first time that allegations have been leveled against humanitarian agencies channeling aid to the victims of continuing extreme political tension," Bolioli said. 15th Street United Methodist The Church with the Welcome Atmosphere SUNDAY, MAY 24, 1981 Sermon Text John 14:15-21 Church School 9:30 a.m. Worship 10:45 a.m. Youth Fellowship 6:30 p.m. Bible Study 7:30 p.m. Tuesday Evening Worship Service 7:30 p.m. Nursery Car* Provided During Church School and Worship He..said the' Salvadoran agency' is "an umbrella organization" made up of the Salvadoran Ecumenical Committee on Humanitarian Aid, the catholic-supported Salvadoran Ecumenical Committee and specialized ministries of -evangelical churches and secular humanitarian agencies. "The coalition effort is providing an estimated I5o,ooo displaced persons with food, medicine, clothing and shelter," he said. Bolioli noted that Bishop Arturo Rivera Y Dama, the apostolic vicar in charge of the diocese of San Salvador, had declared his "strong support" for the work of the Salvadoran humanitarian agency. Dr. Kenneth Slack, director of Christian Aid of the United Kingdom, has also endorsed the Salvadoran agency's relief effort. "Funds are getting through for food and medical supplies," , Slack reported following a visit in March. "We visited two camps for displaced persons," he said. "In one there were a thousand people, chiefly widows and children," with the Salvadoran Ecumenical Association "wholly responsible for daily food."

Nevertheless, our history which has brought us to the present state of being able to cherish that hope has been written in the blood of the brave members of the armed services who gave their lives in a succession of wars to preserve this liberty which we now enjoy. Let us honor their memory by our regular attendance at our House of Worship, the very choice of which being one of the 'freedoms that their lives bought for us; and'let us also pray that with intelligent leadership, this terrible sacrifice will never again be necessary.
