6—Uklah Dally Journal, Uklah Calif. Friday, June 28, 1974 World Neighbors-Model agency for Third World development By DAVID E. ANDERSON UPI Religion Writer The prestigious Carnegie Endowment (or International Peace, in a report earlier this year <>n tHireaucratic bunglings oi national and international' governmental agencies in responding to the v/6st African cfa-ought, suggested that private, voluntary agehcies might play a more positive role than in disaster relief. More recently, Robert S. McNamara, World Bank president —stressing that- he was speaking as "a Presbyterian elder" —urged increased involvement by the church in development matters. John L. Peters, a Methodist clergyman and president of World Neighbors, i^ not unduly optimistic about either the government or the church in terms of its involvement in development; World Neighbors, however, is a mod^l that both church and government might look at in considering what is called variously foreign aid or Third World development., Peters formed World Neighbors in 1952 after preaching a sermon in which he asked,, "How do you get together with people so that it makes a significant difference in their lives —to go as a brother's brother and not as a brother's keepier?" ' . ' "And to myiamaiement," he added, "the phcine^ began to ring "and people were saying, 'Let's go!'" World Neighbors is not a relief agency —a function that many, church groups perform superlatively —but a development effort. It might be com- paredto the difference between putting a band-aid on a wound (relief) and treatment for the LDS bike (develjop- is cause of a disease ment). For Peters, the key element in World Neighbors' development effort is dignity. "The nrtain thrust is to help people keep their dignity. I would say that dignity is a key ingredient of love. Without dignity, where is no real love." World • Neighbors, with a budget of $1.8 million —tiny by most development standards — is active in 21 countries with about 120 different projects. Its main areas of concern are agriculture and food production, family planning, health, literacy and small industries. "Our question has always been," he said, " 'how are you going to get at the people on the bottom?'"^ The organization's answer ^yas that rather than dealing Vith governments, "it is necessary to find a grass roots infrastructure that has integrity, a serious concern for others." And for Worid Neighbors, the most logical —and most developed —local infrastructures appeared to be the churches. In Zsare that has meant working with an indigenous national church, in Indonesia with the local Muslim community and in India with the Gandhi Memorial Association. But he stresses that World Neighbors is not a missionary effort in any way aimed at proselytizing nationals. "As Irag as self-serving is a significant component of the help we extend —either religious or political — we'rel going to fail, but in our attempt to achieve our self- serving goals and in our attempt to build self-sufficiency." World Neighbors "operates through a process of grants to local national groups which are used for development projects on a revolving loan basis locally administered in each project country. It has turned down government funds because it doesn't want to get involved in the bureaucracy of either the U.S. government or the project country government. "Then you can't say we're just people like you who are concerned," Peters said. At the same time, Peters sees a "vast, gigantic reservoir in the church community in this country" that could aid in development projects built on the dignity of the^ recipient people. '"The churches are an appropriate instrument for development," he said. 115 receive Bible School certificates Some 115- children received their Vacation Bible School certificates at the closing program last night, Ukiah Seventh-day Adventist Church. Mrs. Nancy Blower was in charge of the program entitled "Creation." The children sang, special songs depicting the events of each day of creation. A Heritage Singers record was the gift for the parent sitting in the mystery seat. Following the program, parents toured the various divisions, viewing the crafts made by the children as well as the nature displays. Mrs. Grace. Mortenseh was in charge of the nature program and presented a nature feature each day to the, children. Pastor and Mrs. Larry Smedley assisted with the opening sessions each day, leading the song service and telling stories. Mrs. Wilda Wilson assisted in; the story telling. Temple study focusing on July 4 declaration With the Fourth of July celebration coming up this week, m/embers of the Peoples Temple (Efisciples of Christ denomination) have been focusing their Sunday School and Adult Discussion groups on the Declaration of Independence and the Colonial Period. The Temple feels that the privilege of being a citizen carries heavy- responsibilities, including an understanding and appreciation for the basic documents of freedom for this nation. In fact, flanking the American flag at the front of the church are facsimile copies of both the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.^ So that the children can better understand the life of Colonial America, their teachers have been helping them learn of the different aspects of d|aily life including the. family structure and responsibilities, the education, the role and influence of the church, the government by English rule and so forth. Some of the children have written skits showing what it was like before and after indep^dence and .emphasizing the need to stand fast and defend the principles on which this coimtry wis founded. Some of the Temple university students in law school and some with studies in American history and literature have brought some of the original writings of the time to the children and the adult groups as well. Members of the .choir have also researched for special music that was popular at that time. Many picnics and outing's have been planned for senior citizens this summer with the help of the high school and college students as weill as the Temple committees res{)onsible for such activities. In addition to trips to the coast, San Francisco and the redwoods, they hope to make some longer joumies to areas throughout the state and northwest. In addition to specialized activities for senior citizens and children, the Temple has regularly scheduled family activities for they feel that the family is an important asptect that must not be forgotten as our society progresses.
