Religion The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page 7 Briefly Christian Music Festival slated SMITH CENTER — The second annual Smith County Christian Music Festival will open at 6 p.m. Jan. 18 at the National Guard Armory. The event, which includes a meal at 6:30 p.m., is sponsored by the Thornburg, Womer and Reamsville United Methodist churches. It is designed to encourage churches to work together while providing an evening of fellowship. Net profits will be donated to the Smith County Christian Laymen Association. The festival will feature a performance by a 20-member choir from Nicodemus as well as an appearance by the Oak Creek Boys. The Tri-Church Youth Group from the sponsoring churches will provide babysitting in the armory classroom. Tickets are available by calling Louis Overmiller, 389-5221. Catholics to discuss evangelism RUSSELL — Women of the Salina Diocese, scheduled to meet here Tuesday for a Diocesan Council of Catholic Women workshop, will be introduced to a study on "Evangelization in the Modern World." Registration starts at 9 a.m., with workshops following at 9:40 in the St. Mary's Parish Hall. Evangelization is being introduced for parish unit study during the 1986 DCCW year. The study parallels emphasis being placed on evangelization as a result of the Extraordinary Bishops Synod held recently in Rome. Plans for the study of evangelism will be explained by Janice Schlatter, chairman of the church affairs committee, in the first meeting. Other meetings continue through early afternoon. Church groups to get farm funds The Consultation of Cooperating Churches in Kansas has received additional funds to aid farm families. Farm Aid, Inc., which provides funds from the Farm Aid concert last September, has given the group $5,000 in additional funds to distribute to farm families with emergency needs. The American Baptist Churches of the Central Region have received a grant of $10,000 from their national office to supplement Farm Aid funds which are administered by the CCCK's Interfaith Rural Life Committee. Two earlier Farm Aid grants provided assistance to 173 families. Clergy knowing of a family needing assistance should write the committee, 4125 Gage Center Drive, Room 208, Topeka, Kan. 66604. A check, for a maximum of $100 per family for assistance in food, utilities or emergency medical needs, will be sent to the pastor for delivery to the family. The identity of the family is now necessary. Film set at First Covenant Church The film "Jesus is Victor" is scheduled to be shown at 7 p.m. Sunday at First Covenant Church, 801E. Cloud. The film provides a personal and intimate portrait of Corrie Ten Boom, a Dutch Christian who, until she was silenced by a stroke in 1978 at the age of 86, traveled the globe telling of her experiences in Nazi- occupied Holland during World War II. Boom and her family helped saved hundreds of Jews through their work with the underground. A nursery will be provided. Gospel singer at Glasco church GLASCO — Tim Peterson, a gospel singer from Grand Rapids, Mich., is slated to appear at the Glasco Christian Church at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Peterson started singing with his family in Tilden, Neb. After graduation from high school, he traveled with the Kordsman Quartet for five years. In 1972, he formed the gospel singing group of Tim Petersen and the Samaritans. He disbanded that group in mid-1975 and now appears in his "A Quartet in One" show.'

Eighth. Participants should bring their own lunch. Coffee will be furnished. * * * Singles Christian Fellowship will meet at 7:30 tonight at the First Nazarene Church, 1425 S. Ohio.

The group, which is directed by Bill By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer The keen and often revealing mixture of human reaction to the spread of AIDS sometimes bears strong religious implications. Along with the general fears, the malady has unleashed varied emotions and attitudes ranging from solely clinical to harshly condemnatory. Numerous church thinkers repudiate both responses as flawed, aiming the sharpest rebukes at smug views of the disease as God's judgment on homosexual activity. That latent notion has surfaced in some strictly conservative commentaries since the fatal affliction has struck mainly among homosexuals. Some people, including Christians, often have "reacted with condemnation rather than compassion," writes the Rev. Russell T. Hitt in the evangelical monthly, Eternity. He says such attitudes have made AID victims the "new lepers," outcasts like those to whom Jesus so often ministered, enjoining Christians to do likewise. Some major denominations, notably the Episcopal Church and several Roman Catholic dioceses in New York, San Francisco and elsewhere, have launched special ministries in behalf of AIDS sufferers. "This is not a matter for pointing a finger, but for offering a helping hand," says Roman Catholic Archbishop Patrick Flores of San Antonio, Texas. The Episcopal Church, whose general convention repudiated "any and all indiscriminate statements which condemn or reject" AIDS victims, inaugurated a churchwide program of help to them. Nevertheless, the idea of divine retribution for Tuzicka, will sing "Sing Hosanna to the Son of David," "0 Magnify the Lord" and "Just a Closer Walk with Thee." * * * "Thoughts about C.S. Lewis" will be the subject discussed by the Rev. William E. Craig during the adult Sunday School class at Christ Cathedral, 138 S. Eighth, this Sunday and also Jan. 19. C.S. Lewis was an English author who taught Medieval and Renaissance studies at Oxford and Cambridge. He is considered one of the most effective Christian theologians and has been called "Apostle to Agnostics." The class meets hi Parish Hall. Starting Sunday, all Sunday School classes begin at 9:15 a.m. * * * Dr. Keith Phillips, president of World Impact, Inc., will conduct a seminar on "Making Disciples" from 7 to 8:30 tonight at First Covenant Church, 801 E. Cloud. He also will preach in both Sunday services. Bishop irks Kansas cattlemen DODGE CITY (AP) — Southwest Kansas cattlemen made their point when they beefed about the bishop's suggestion that Catholics give up meat on Fridays. Bishop Stanley Schlarman of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dodge City told parishoners in a letter published in the diocesan newspaper this week that his original suggestion to give up meat one day a week was not mandatory. He said that he had received letters pointing out the financial problems in farm areas. The bishop made the recommendation in a pastoral letter Dec. 1, the start of advent, but said in a followup letter this week that his suggestion was for some form of self-denial as "a form of prayer for peace." He said other types of sacrifice also are encouraged. The bishop was out of town Thursday, but Monsignor Al homosexual activity continues to crop up, and evangelical publications have dealt with it most openly and seriously. One of the ablest examinations of it came from theologian Cornelius Plantinga Jr. of Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Mich., who criticizes both the ignoring of the problem's moral dimensions and looking down on its victims. "If there is a divine judgment on unrighteousness, we may take God's word for it that there is also, perhaps more severe judgment on self-righteousness," he writes in the fortnightly Christianity Today. "For those of us not tormented by the appetite for promiscuous sex, a more sinister temptation gleams — the desire to toss and gore public offenders until the last rag of their humanity has been shredded. "The need to be ... comforted by the sins of others puts us at final risk with God as surely as if we traveled the fast track on the streets of San Francisco. In fact, our risk is likely to be greater... "The misery that comes from human fallenness typically evoked not Jesus' condemnation but his compassion. He asked the chance to eat with sinners. Nobody else did. He touched lepers. Nobody else did... "It is a grave mistake to under-estimate sin and strive for no-fault moralities... But it is an even greater mistake to under-estimate ... the reach of __ divine compassion. Sin is not acceptable to God; ' repentant sinners are." Plantinga also faults the secularist response to AIDS, the "pop humanist" media reactions that shun moral aspects of the problem, considering the notion of sin irrational, stressing only that science must be mobilized against the menace. "Once more, technology must be trusted to clean up after the party," he says of that view. For the most part, he says, the media treats AIDS as "tragedy without tragic flaw; hopes for remission of disease but no prayers for remission of sin; fear without phobia; danger without wrongdoing; poised alarm; no-fault scandal; technological sanctif ication.'' Nevertheless, he says, serious Christians recognize that "God is not mocked. When someone sins, someone pays. A seed wrongly sown may yield a bitter harvest. Happy heterosexuals who ignore their spouses and children cannot hope for solid homes. "Nicotine-stained souls should not be surprised by the dreaded report that one day comes back from a lab. We should all know by now that drunkenness yields hangovers and deaths, greed produces stress and enmity, promiscuity issues in diseases. "The notion that we shouldn't bother our heads over private immorality (the kind that 'doesn't hurt anyone') suddenly seems naive and fantastic. When misery follows hard after sin we are reminded that divine prohibitions and judgments are in fact a merciful early warning system. "None of us — including gays — can hope to live as we want without taking sin's wages." To the sprightly beer commercial that asks, "Who says you can't have it all," Plantinga says Christians have an answer: "God." Plantinga says history and nature, as well as Scripture, warn against moral license. He adds, "Indeed, in a remarkable altering of lifestyle, street-wise gays have concluded that promiscuity is life in the wrong lane."

Bartelt, Pastor Preisner of Dodge City said the bishop's original suggestion was for the 40,000 Catholics in the diocese to give up meat on Fridays or do some type of penance "for advent and, if they wished to do so, during the year." In the foUowup letter, Schlarman said that "concerns have been raised as to the impact this would have on those who depend on the beef industry for their livelihood. The concern is particularly acute in these difficult times for rural America." "It was not my intention to add to the difficulties being experienced by our farmers and cattlemen," he said, adding that he had intended to stress the importance of sacrifice for the cause of peace. Church doctrine had forbidden the eating of meat on Fridays until church leaders changed the rule at Vatican II in the early 1960s.
