Religion The Salina Journal Saturday, January 4 1986 Page 10 Briefly Memorial chapel to be dedicated First Presbyterian Church, 308 S. Eighth, is to dedicate its new memorial chapel at 4 p.m. Sunday. A first-floor classroom near the church office was coverted into the chapel, which will seat about 75. It will be available for small weddings and funerals as well as other services. The chapel was made possible by a gift from Nathan and Dorothy Butcher as a memorial to their daughter, Betty. The organ and other furnishings were provided by gifts memo- ralizing Lala Bauman, Maybelle Beverly, Virginia Boyle, Elmer Ellis, Lyle Flora, Nina Gemmill, Raymond Green, R.E. Greiner, Oscar Johnson, Stanley Livengood, Jeff Ludwig, Donald McCune, Lois and Clarence McCandless, Kate Mowery, Margaret and Chester Russell, Mamie Willett, Dana Winsett and Harry Yoder, and honoring Mrs. Violet Martin. Phillips to discuss discipleship Dr. Keith Phillips, president of World Impact, Inc., will conduct a seminar on "Making Disciples" at 7 p.m. Jan. 11 at First Covenant Church, Cloud and Roach. The seminar will address these questions: What is discipleship? Who is a disciple? How do you make disciples? Phillips also will preach during services at 9:30 and 10:55 a.m. on Jan. 12. World Impact, Inc., is a nationwide, interdenominational discipling ministry that seeks to bring God's love to the ghettos of America. Phillips holds a master of divinity degree and a doctorate in ministries from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the author of "The Making of a Disciple" and "They Dare to Love the Ghetto." Carol festival to mark Epiphany Epiphany services, including a carol festival at McPherson, have been scheduled by Salina and area churches. The second annual Epiphany Festival of Carols is planned at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Trinity Lutheran Church in McPherson. The festival will include anthems by Trinity's four handbell choirs, three children's choirs and the senior choir. A free-will offering will be taken. Refreshments will be served in Trinity's new multi-purpose addition. Services also are slated at three Salina churches. Christ Cathedral, 138 S. Eighth, plans an Epiphany party at the coffee hour immediately following the 10:15 a.m. service Sunday. The traditional Epiphany Cake containing trinkets for the children will be served. Party hosts are Gene and Carolyn Peterson and Pete and Marvene Peterson. First Presbyterian Church, 308 S. Eighth, is to have its service at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Lakewood Lodge. A short service will include burning of Christmas trees. Refreshments are planned. Trinity Lutheran Church, 10th and Crawford, is planning a 7 p.m. Epiphany service followed by "Burning of the Greens" and a wassail toast. Shortage of priests spurs parish change FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Christmas arrived with special joy for the 300 members of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, a parish that nearly had to close its doors because the diocese couldn't staff it with a full- time priest. A creative alternative has kept Sacred Heart open and made Ken Berger and Pat Robertson, his wife, the financial, practical and spiritual leaders of the parish since summer. Ten weeks ago, they added newborn son Danny to the church administration. "Closing it was my first choice," said the Rev. Kenneth Povish, bishop of the Lansing Diocese, which includes the Flint area. "But this particular parish was doing some very fine outreach things, and they didn't want to quit. I didn't want to discourage them ... I think it's working." So does Douglas Gauthier, a 12- year member of Sacred Heart whose wife and five children also worship there. "We're probably having more activities now than we normally do," said Gauthier. The prospect of closing the church "really kind of made me sad," he said. "We were wondering where we'd go to church ... Sacred Heart was the parish we wanted.'' Gauthier said he and other parishioners hope the bishop will make Berger and Robertson's appointment at the inner-city church permanent. "I think we're very fortunate in getting Pat and Ken," he said, noting the congregation was growing. Povish said nuns, deacons and lay Catholics are leading other U.S. churches, so he was willing to try it at Sacred Heart. "There's a real priest shortage, and I think it's all over," said Rob- ertson, 29. "The most important thing to the people was to have the church community stay — and stay together." The family lives in the 57-year-old church's small rectory, which normally would be occupied by a priest. A 31-year-old Baltimore native, Berger left a New York Catholic seminary in 1980 shortly before he was to be ordained because he did not want to remain celibate. He moved to Lansing to perform church work and met Robertson, and they married in 1982. Berger would ask to be ordained if the Catholic Church allowed priests to marry. "I would be on the bishop's doorstep first thing... saying, 'Here I am,'" he said. The couple spend 10 percent of their time overseeing the church's $100,000 budget, church projects such as a soup kitchen, upkeep of the parish and planning Sunday services with neighboring priests. Ninety percent of their work is pastoral, Berger said. "There's not a whole lot a full-time priest here could do that we don't do," he said, except hear confessions, give communion or administer other sacraments. Berger said he doesn't think parishioners hesitate to seek his or Robertson's guidance because they are not priests. "You put yourself in the position of ministering to people, and no matter whether you wear a collar or not, people are going to tell you what they want to tell you," he said. Although the job has been hard work, with calls in the middle of the night, Berger said it has been fulfilling. "There are also joyous things, uplifting things," he said. "We have just as much going on here as any other parish." Churches'apartheid fight intensifies By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer The ghetto existence imposed on blacks in South Africa has come under a sharpening fusilade of religious condemnation and resistance both in that country and elsewhere, including the United States. That swelling movement, shown both in words and deeds, was ranked as the prime religious development of 1985 in a poll of the Religion Newswriters Association, and was gaining in magnitude as the year turned. "The moment of truth — the 'kairos' — is now, both for South Africa and the world community," declared a pre-Christmas emergency meeting on the issue of church leaders from many lands in Harare, Zimbabwe. Denouncing the "oppressive structures of apartheid" as "against God's will" and "morally indefensible," the December gathering summoned by the World Council of Churches said: "The transfer of power to the majority of the people, based on universal suffrage, is the only solution to the present crisis." U.S. participants were seeking to organize a broad church assembly on the matter in Washington in mid- January, including Roman Catholics and Southern Baptists as well as denominations in the National Bell to defend Baptist Convention Council of Churches. Redoubled, coordinated church efforts on the issue were pledged, including lobbying with Congress, requesting a meeting with the administration, pressing for U.S. economic sanctions and planning a day of prayer and fasting. Beyond just words, religious forces were mobilizing against the racial separation system with an urgency that some say resembles the religious drive in the civil rights movement of the 1960's. There were, however, individual religious voices of disagreement, such as that of the Rev. Jerry Falwell, Moral Majority leader, who defends South Africa's course. But the major denominations worked to alter it. Both Protestant and Roman Catholic church organizations, through stockholder pressures, have been behind decisions of several top U.S. banks to stop making loans to South Africa's government. Religious groups also have been "prime movers in persuading numerous city and state pension plans to divest holdings in companies with South African operations," says United Church spokesman William Winslow. In the past year, about 2,000 mostly church people, including many bishops and top officials, have been arrested in demonstrations outside the South African Embassy in Washington and at consultates in other cities. It became almost a formal routine, with people planning to be arrested wearing red or blue armbands for easy identification by police and breaking the law against demonstrating within 500 feet of foreign establishments. "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," they sometimes sang when handcuffed and taken to police stations for booking on misdemeanor charges. Those arrested would be released on small bonds, the charges later generally dropped. Fourteen U.S. denominational leaders were among the 80 church officials meeting in Zimbabwe last month on the South African situation at the call of the World Council, with others from Canada, Western Europe and South Africa. They urged "immediate and comprehensive sanctions" by other nations against South Africa, and a halt to renewal of bank loans to it. "Economic pressure is the only avenue available to bring a peaceful solution," says Bishop David W. Preus, head of the American Lutheran Church, and one of the U.S. participants. "A movement has begun that cannot be stopped," he said. He added that without measures to get the South African government to end apartheid, "the only other option" is- massive slaughter. Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu of Johannesburg cited the United States, Britain and West Germany as playing key roles in sustaining the white minority regime. "If President Reagan were to apply to South Africa the same policies he has to Nicaragua and Poland, the apartheid system would be dead," Tutu said. "The system has gone mad. Only a miracle in the intervention of the international community will move us from the brink of catastrophe." To questions, he said some individual Christians may decide under criteria of the "just war" that "the time has come to overthrow an evil system by force," but the church itself can never espouse violence. Presiding Bishop John M. Allin of the U.S. Episcopal Church said unless there is some breakthrough, such "voices of moderation and reason more and more are going to get lost. Church notes Sunset Spiritualist Church, Wells, is to hold an 11 a.m. service Sunday, with the Rev. Wanda Drake, Wichita, to speak. A basket dinner follows the service.

Marshall Nursery Provided ATLANTA (AP) - Former U.S. Attorney General Griffin B. Bell has been retained by the Southern Baptist Convention to defend it against a lawsuit challenging the legality of actions at the denomination's convention last June. The suit, filed by a Birmingham, Ala., couple and a retired Navy officer of Windsor, Mo., claims parliamentary rulings by the denomination's president, the Rev. Charles Stanley, undercut the majority will of the convention. A fundamentalist wing, which backed Stanley, has gained increasing control over the denomination in a partisan struggle with moderates. The suit, seeking to throw out as illegal a presidentially appointed committee that picks trustees of denominational agencies, is against both Stanley and the denomination's executive committee, which upheld his actions. Bell of Atlanta was attorney general during the presidency of fellow Georgian Jimmy Carter. Both are Southern Baptists. A reminder The deadline for all church news is 5 p.m. Wednesday.
