Editor's Note: Out of patience with' everlasting demands for money, woman Is itayiui away from church. DEAR MARY HA WORTH: Our church has a large congregation, arid there are constant calls for money. Not for the church, nor for missions — but to buy gifts for various aries. .We are asked to contribute for christening showers, for bridal showers, for wedding gifts; for housewarming. and goodbye gifts. Also for gifts for the pastor's wedding anniversary, his birthday, and .the anniversary of his entering the ministry. Also, birthday and anniversary gifts for. the church organist, the choir director, etc. And for Christmas gifts for every member of the church staff and Sunday school. As we leave Sunday School class we -are told individually: "Come next Sunday — and be sure to bring that .^donation! ".The Istest request (inTthe form of a demand) for the pastor's family, was so large that it "made me stop and think. - V V ' ." " "•• '.-• ' "•'. can the pastor be told? Eager Beavers Courting Favor? DEAR B. -G.: We can't be. sure that your pastor reads this department; of course; but on the chance that he does, here is one possible way. of letting him .know how you feel. As to why he and his family accept a flow of gifts that his parishioners (for the most part) cannot afford: perhaps he humbly supposes that he is thereby submitting to ah exercise in Christian charity and artlessly assumes that the donors rejoice in their sacrifi cial giving. According to Christian theory, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Isn't it? these diligent henchmen probabl aren't very conscious of the rank and-file . parishioners, who conv and go at the regular services Thus it wouldn't occur to them to wonder how many of the congrega tion approve or can afford the continuous outlay for gifts. If challenged on this point, they likely would exclaim (in effect> "But nobody has to give; it's all voluntary. We took for granted everybody knew that—." Etc. I think it is a mistake—a case of cutting off your, nose to. spite your face — to fall away from church only because you feel houiv ded by. assiduous money-raisers It- is childish to "buy" the idea that you should contribute to every fund drive that is ballyhooed. Give to the causes that you can afford, and really want to support — and let the others .pass. As an adult, you are expected to know better than others can, just how elastic .your income is M. H. Congregation Isn't Wealthy The pastor receives—in the form of salary, expenses, and perquisites— tlje equivalent of eight thousand a year, exclusive: of fees for weddings and platform lectures. Recently I heard him.say he.saves 1 approximately one third of .his yearly cash salary—which is more than most of his. parishioners are paid in a year. •' ,-.:'•-.-• Since last July, these ^calls for money have amounted '-'to more than my tithe. If the pastor knows the financial status of the majority of his : parishioners, I wonder why he and'his family accept gifts which the donors can't afford?. Why doesn't he do something to stop the requests? 1^ am absenting myself fra»m church services, because I am tired of being embarrassed publicly, having "reached the point where 1 can no longer "pay up". There are , In all probability, the ' steady flow of gifts to church functionaries and their families, on every sort of sentimental anniversary, is engineered by a coterie «f church workers.' who have a collective crush on the pastor. To endear themselves to the pastor (they hope), and to keep in touch with his inner circle— and to highlight and fill in their social calendars—they busy themselves giving presents to'him and his staff,, in the name-of the congregation i : I daresay.
