Church Union Advances Despite 'Nerve Failure 9 By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - A modern wave of anti-lnstitutionalism has caused a "failure of nerve" In many church officials about the quest for church reunion, an expert says. But he adds that the goal already is emerging . and its attainment seems certain. "If s not just a pipe dream," says the Rev. Dr. Paul A. Crow Jr., of Princeton, N.J., executive secretary of the Consultation on Church Union— COCU. "There's more momentum for it now man there ever has been." But much of the impetus, he adds, is now coming from the local scene rather than from denominational centers. "It's a new kind of pressure that is coming from the grass roots," he says, referring to the growth of .cross-denominational coalitions forming among different congregations in many communities." Interviewed prior to the current observance of the annual week of prayer for Christianity unity sponsored by Protestant, Orthodox and Roman Catholic bodies, Dr. Crow said the movement has entered a more realistic stage. "It has moved past the old- style conciliarism of amiability when ministers got together and now is involving broader participation of the laity in the common functional arena," he said. Dr. Crow, 39, an Alabama- born church historian, left a seminary teaching post at Lexington, Ky., four years ago to administer the project seeking to unite nine American Protestant denominations totaling about 25 million people. It is only one of about 50 different merger negotiations going on between Protestant denominations in many parts of the world, some of them nearing consumation. Besides these, theological talks also are continuing between Roman Catholicism and the major Protestant and Orthodox traditions, with a growing, list of agreements ot various aspects of doctrine and practice. Dr. Crow, who spends about half his time on the road meet­ ing'With various church groups to explain the basis and pattern for'the proposed united church said the upsurge of local ecumenical clusters, coalitions, consortiums and alliances of various kinds, dealing with issues of race, drugs, poverty, peace and other matters, has produced a "new local ecumenism." "Congregations are relating to each other locally, on their own terms and out of- their own needs and initiatives," he said. "They're saying in effect that denominational identification is a thing of the past." He said the phenomenon has not been systematically surveyed, but recent spot checks show at least 400 such cross-de• nominations! arrangements in as many communities. The denominations involved are the Episcopal, United Presbyterian United Methodist, Presbyterian UJS. (Southern), Century Club (Continued From Page 1) such programs possible," Blacker said. A new administrative structure has been developed at the college, Blacker explained, that includes a strong department head structure. He said that in line with a streamlining of the administrative structure, is a current analysis and evaluation of the area of student services and the probability of assignment, in the near future, of the duties of athletic director to a staff member. The athletic director will be responsible for the entire athletic program, Blacker said, including a good intramural program. Blacker expressed the hope that (he Century Club, through its board, will continue to work closely with the college in the development of its athletic program. A year-end financial report of the club showed total receipts of $8,103.39 and a paid membership of 80 persons. Expenses of $5,717.54 included $648 for team trip expense and $5,000 in athletic scholarships. Door prizes totaling $2,000 were awarded to Miner Motors, Holtz Furniture, Timmins Real Estate, Arvil Parks, Herb Sneden, Ted Schacherer, P & G Cleaners, Crim Agricultural Service and Margaret Jackson.

He could have made a ferris wheel, or a barn, or a wagon. But, as it happens, he made a church. Maybe it is because, since he was a tot, the Church has been so important in his life. To Bobby the Church represents a warmth and love that made him want to "build one of his own." Does your child feel that way? World-Wide Travel Service NO EXTRA CHARGE for Our Service, 1737 E.
