The next meeting, which will be a social one will be Tuesday, October 13th. First Vice President Christ Beck will preside. Mission Speaker at St. John BT Riv. Dmld B. Gourlay Dr. Wf Jo Kang, Professor at Concordla Seminary, St. Louis and native Korean, will be guest preacher at St. John Lutheran Church, 305 Circle Ave., Forest Park, on Sunday, October 18th. The congregation will celebrate Its annual Mission Festival that day in ail three morning services at 8:00 A.M. in German, and at 9:15 and 10:45 in English. Dr. Kang is a pastor in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, as the result of that church body's mission work in Korea. He came to the United States and began training for the ministry at St. John's College, Winfield, Kansas in 1954. He received his Bachelor of Divinity Degree from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in 1960. He also earned an M. A. Degree in 19G2 a Ph.D. Degree in 1967 from the University of Chicago. He was ordained in 1968. Since 1968 he has been an Assistant Professor at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. In 1961, Dr. Kang was united in marriage with the former Yon Soon Clio. The couple has four children. St. John annually celebrates a Mission Festival to give stress to the Church's mission work a- rmmd the w.irld. At onetime, in rural German communities, Mission Festivals were all-day outdoor celebrations with an afternoon worship service, featuring a missionary. The cojign'fjaiion, or congregations, participating would also raise a sizeable offering for mission work. READ REVIEW -I/a fk of Un. own by Jackie Ocnulz There have been many favorable comments on the exciting fall and winter schedule at the park this year. There's something for everyone so take advantage of the opportunity to learn something that's fun this fall. Gerry Smith sent us word of a lecture-education series being offered by St. Luke's parish. The theme of the series Is "Theology for Homemakers". It runs on consecutive Tuesday mornings beginning October 6th through November 10th In Waldron Hall of the school from 9:15 until 11:00 A.M. All women ofthearea are invited to attend. The topics will be "From Eve to Me, With Love". This is an In-depth study of scripture, ongoing revelation and the effects of both on theology. The Rev. Tony Hogan, O.S.A. Youth Division of the Chicago C.C.D. office will be the speaker. "Growing up Faithfully" - the questions a faith grown-to-adulthood m ist ask and try to answer. Rev. Terrence Rynne, lecturer in religious studies at Rosary and assistant at St. Luke's will be the speaker. "It is Right- It Can't be Wrong" is a consideration of the mature Christian's thornier moral problems. The Rev. Thomas Murphy, Professor of Moral Theology will be the speaker. A babysitting service will be provided. For further information, call, Mrs. Hubbard Erickson, 369-8886. Lori Olson recently spent a few weeks in California where she "lent a hand" In the home of her sister, Andrea Mitchell who was ill. Lori kept house, prepared meals and babysat. Needless to say, she is glad to be back! Russ Cortino was bitten by a lobster at a cook-out at Gus Scolaro's recently. Russ was showing the guests how to hold a lobster so it wouldn't bite. Two parties commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. John McDerman. On Sept. 12th, a dinner was given in their honor at Biancalanas Restaurant by their children, Judy Hays, Janice and Rory McDerman. In on (he festivities were Judy's husband Russ, Ethel Sprik (Mrs. McDerman's sister), two grandchildren Patrick and Kelly Ann Hays and Janice's fiance, James Lord. A post-dinner party was held at Judy's where cake and coffee were served and the gins were opened. Then a few days later, Arlene's club surprised them by throwing a surprise party at their house! That was really a surprise - I hope there were clean guest towels in the bathroom! The action that evening was supplied by Rose Winkler, Ethel Sprik, Ed and Jean Turner, Jim and Nancy Kkarda, Sam and Corrine Wolf, Blanche Berebitsky and Wally and Sie Howler. Arlene and John were married September 15, 1945 at St. Peter's Church and have lived here in town most of their married life. Congratulations to both of you - hope you have twenty- five more! What was that? If the kids are bugging you around the house these fall Saturdays, a great place to go for them and you is to the Goodman Theatre. "Sacramento Fifty Miles" by Eleanor and Ray Harder is playing there througn November 15th. It's a tale of a mistreated dog who thinks he can sing and play the guitar, an overworked burro who fancies himself a warbler, an abandoned cat who meows on key and a vain rooster who thinks his crowing is singing. Sounds familiar? It should - it's a Gold Rush version of "The Brememtown Musicians". These plays are immensely appealing to young audiences, and they usually have some audience participation - singing or shouting magic words or something - the kids really love it. And before I leave - another suggestion for next weekend. The Morton Arboretum is in full glory right now. But I'd suggest Saturday rather than Sunday if you can possibly make it. Sundays are so mobbed with cars, you breathe more polluted air than'you would at the corner of State and Randolph. But the trees and shrubs are worth the trip out to Lisle. Mrs. James Whalen, Mrs. Eugene Schellington, Mrs. John Vignola (standing) and Rev. Terrence Rynne.
