One of the affluent industries of our generation is packaging. Developing bright containers with attractive colors and easily opened devices becomes the lifework of many talented people. There are laws governing the claims, the weight and the contents of the package. The shape and form of the containers is limited only by the imagination and the practical storage dimensions. Packaging is important in other areas of life. The form of worship, a vehicle for worship, is in the process of change in all varieties of religious groups. The need to communicate has affected all of the older or historic translations of Scripture. In many instances, the change is more radical. It is the discovery of the truth which had been confused with the packaging, and which causes new insights to be brought to the meaning of the statemen of faith. In the new Scripture translation the change of form is dramatic. Once upon a time, the Bible was protected by heavily decorated covers, sometimes closed with a latch, and kept in a place of reverence. With the upheaval of the Refoi'mation new translations into the vernacular were published. In the 20th century we've had a rash of these new versions. Among the earlier forms was the American Re^ Vised version, quickly followed by the Goodspeed and Moffatt translations and then by the Revised Standard version and the new English Bible. In addition, the J.B. Phillips paraphrase,is a fascinating statement. Th=! Anchor Bible, now in production, promises to be an Interesting meeting ground for both Roman Catholic and Protestant.

Nancy Branch, leader. the new packages for the Word is the volumne, "Good News tor Modem Man." Published by the American Bible Society, it is packaged as a paperback. The new translation uses words now common in the English language. The pagea are broken by frequent paragraph headings so that one is not overwhelmedly the printed page. There are simple line drawingi which illustrate various pasaaf* es. One immediately detecta 1 «a emphasis upon communication rather than poetic beauty. Tha petition in the Lord's prayer concerning forgiveness is translated, "Forgive us what we o(|r« you as we forgive what othex* owe us." The Beatitudes ara stated as a series of injuhctioha beginning "Happy are those. • " "Happy are those who knosa they are spiritually poor: ' t}i» kingdom of heaven, belongs ts them." "Happy are those i#h0 work for eeace among men: God will call them sons." One immediately detects Hm dignity and the reverence Whidi. ere kept in this translation.' It is meaningful, not flippant, honest when not poetic. Its impor- tan<;e is that it brings the ca» tent of Scripture in an attMC- tive package geai'ed to modem man. It is doubtful that such « translation can ever influene*. culture as did flie King Jam^ Bible. It does encourage men aril women to read the Seripturta, regularly, carefully, undentaiid* ingly. It enables truth to «h cape the package.

The Rev. Robert Mclntyre, 58, vicai- of St. C^ithbert's in the Somerset market town of Wejls, thought he should. So, when renovation of the church windows required more money than his parishioners could raise, he decided to seU two 300-year-old silver flagons. An art expert had valued them at $11,200. That raised a storm he never expected. The sale was opposed by the City Council and the gov- emors of the local Blue School, which was founded by one Ezekiel Barkham, who presented the flagons to the church before his deatii in 1641. The issue became so controversial that the Bishop of Bath and Wells, the Rt. Rev. Edward Henderson, stepped in to appoint a consistory court to give a ruling. Rectors and vicars all over England took time off fi'om watching the ravages of deathwatch beetles and the leaking roofs of their mouldering churches to see which way the decision would go. Most had some church plate stored away but little money in their restoration funds. Just how much ti'easure the Church of England has is a matter for conjecture. One expert has set its value at $56 million. Prebendary A. S. Hopkinson, rector of Bobbingworth in Essex, suggested last year that many of the church valuables should be handed to the state for valuation, then turned into cash for maintaining and restoring the most worthwliile churches. "Apart fi'om actual buildings and available sites, the church has a great deal of treasure hidden away in safes and museums," says Hopkinson, who Is also a religious adviser to one of Britain's commercial television corporations. "No one can estimate the value of the plate and other valuables which are never in use." The Rev. Mr. Mclntyre seemed to bear him out. His flagons stand about two feet high and look like drinking mugs with hinged lids. They are never used. "They lie in Uie bank vault from one end of the year to another." the vicar said.
