Film to discuss religious freedom "The Angel of Sardis," a new film from Evangelical Films, will have its premiere Salina showing at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Grand Avenue United Methodist Church, 304 W. Grand. The movie is the result of Evangelical Films' effort to deal with the problems facing the church on the subject of religious freedom. It tells the story of Pastor Robert Ingstrom's fight to save his church from spiritual death. A carry-in supper is planned at 6 p.m. as part of the church's fellowship night activities. Ex-pastor helps ministers with sermons HONOLULU (AP) - A Presbyterian minister might start his Sunday sermon by telling a story from the life of American writer Mark Twain. That same day, an Episcopal priest might tell his congregation the same story, but as part of a sermon with a different point. The chances are the two men subscribe to a sermon-preparation service. Glendon Harris, a former trade writer and minister who now runs such a service in Honolulu, says with all the tasks a clergyman has to handle "there just isn't enough time anymore'' for them to do an adequate job developing sermons. To make up for some of the lack of it, Harris publishes "Pulpit Resource," put out quarterly, which offers stories, anecdotes and literary references pegged to Scriptural readings for each Sunday. He says the material can enliven sermons and keep a congregation's attention. "With television, radio and modern magazines, people are more sophisticated, they won't stand for that old style ... haranguing," he says. "You have to look at it from the listener's standpoint." While most ministers study the Scriptures extensively while in seminary, he says few receive adequate instruction in homiletics, or the art of preaching, even though such Lids placed on 'clown ministr/ WASHINGTON (AP) - Clowns are OK in some ways for teaching about Christ, but are not to be used in the church's regular liturgy of worship, says a Roman Catholic committee. The Bishops' committee on liturgy says the "sincerity of those involved in 'clown ministry' is not to be questioned, but it must be made clear that they have no liturgical function.'' The statement says the "clown has a place" to entertain, to aid in teaching children and in "works of charity" such as visiting those who are sick or confined and "even in certain traditions of Christological reflection." This refers to the role a clown can play in portraying the idea of being a fool for Christ or of God's apparent foolishness and weakness surpassing human wisdom and strength, says the Rev. John Gurrieri of the liturgy secretariat. He says that except in liturgical worship, the statement is "very supportive" of the clown ministery. A long tradition in Christian drama and literature sees outcasts, apparent fools and idiots, such as Don Quixote, as representing Christ. While not wishing to' 'stifle genuine adaptation and authentic creativty where permitted by liturgical norms," the statement said, use of clowns is not appropriate in the liturgy and detracts from its "prayerful atmosphere" and "sense of the transcendent." Newspaper drops gay caucus ad DALLAS (AP) — A gay caucus in the United Methodist Church claims a weekly denominational newspaper "capitulated" to reader opposition when it discontinued a classified ad, but the editor says that wasn't the case. Spurgeon M. Dunnam III of the United Methodist Reporter says he had not capitulated to anyone in halting the ad's appearance, but simply had "made a mistake" in allowing it in the first place. The paid, nine-word ad, which had been running for more than a year, said "Gay and Lesbian United Methodists — it's time for Affirmation. Write P.O. Box 1021, Evanston, El." Dunham said he had decided the original acceptance of the ad had not been in accord with the paper's policy of refusing ads "at odds" with the church's social principles. The principles state that "homosexual persons no less than heterosexual persons are individuals of sacred worth" but "we do not condone the practice of homosexuality," considering it "incompatible with Christian teaching."

"If you look at the history of the church, the church has always been successful and strong when it's had a strong pulpit," he says. "Conversely, it's been weak and declining in membership and influence when there hasn't been a strong emphasis on preaching." His publication offers no conclusions to possible sermons, but rather is intended to give ministers a spark, or a departure point, for writing their own, he says, adding: "If it clicks with them, they might follow it quite closely. Some Sundays they might not see any possibilities at all." Among other similar services in the country, some provide complete, ready-made sermons, others simply resource material, suggested approaches, illustratative stories or other helps. Harris attended the Western Evangelical Seminary in Portland, Ore., after working as a building and construction materials writer for 12 years. He later headed churches in Peoria, 111.; Willcox, Ariz., and Thousand Oaks, Calif. He found his background in writing helpful in preparing sermons.-Soon, he began duplicating copies of his completed sermons for other ministers to study. "I started grinding them out on the church mimeograph and sending them around the (regional church) conference," Harris says. "I was surprised at the response." In 1974, he decided to give up preaching and go full time into producing completely written sermons, a practice he abandoned after a few years. "I guess I might have felt guilty about it," Harris says. "I have very little tolerance for intellectual indolence, and felt they should compose their own." "Pulpit Resource" is now in its 14th year, and has about 8,000 subscribers. Subscribers are located all over the United States, and some abroad, he says. "I try not to step on any theological toes," he said. "I don't take any doctrinal slant, because we go to every denomination; everything from a tin roof tabernacle to a high Episcopal church." While some individual faiths publish guides to help ministers in sermon preparation, Harris says there are only a few other broad- based, multi-faith homiletical guides being produced in the United States. Harris spends two days or more per week collecting material for his sermon guides, and a few more days compiling it — an investment of time that many ministers would find difficult. "They don't have the luxury that I have," says Harris. In addition to sermon preparation, and conducting mid-week and weekend services, he says many ministers must take care of church administration, attend denominational meetings and fulfill an expanded counseling role. For Harris, the key thing is to relate the Scriptural readings to everyday life. Church notes The Very Rev. Arthur J. Rathbun, dean of Christ Cathedral, 138 S.
