NOW oc uv & LOVESEAT BOTH PIECES He bet $1,000 on his congregation •188 By THEODORE A. 1LIFF LAKE LOTAWANA, Mo. UPI) — The Rev. David Fine- tead has faith in God and lis congregation. The 30-year-old novice min­ ster at the United Methodist ihurch in this small town «ast of Kansas City is at- empting to dramatize Jhrist’s “Parable of the Ta- ents,” but his methods are a ittle unorthodox. The biblical parable deals vith a master who, when planning to leave for a while, split his financial holdings among three servants accoid- ing to their abilities. Two servants doubled the master’s money while he was away, but the third, afraid of losing the grant, buried his coins, called talents in the Bible. Tt earned him a stern scolding from the master. “I think the parable relates to the ability’ of people to receive the grace of God, the soft-spoken minister said. “God gives us his grace according to our ability to use it. My frustration was how to make the parable real to the congregation.” Finestead decided to go back to the parable, and, dipping into his personal savings, put $1,000 in the church collection basket in Septem- rhe congregation was inducted to take whatever ay wished, secretly, in $5, and $20 bills, and return )v. 24 for a “day of ac- unting.” “Maybe some of the people ■e just spending it,” he said. Jut I wouldn’t have done it I didn’t have a good con­ ipt of people and confidence i them. “There are always a few 3 u can’t count on. But if aople are asked to reach for le highest, they’ll come ireugh. In a way,' I bet $1,39 on my people. I’m not worried. “Sure it was a shock, Finestead said cf his act ol faith in the congregation. “How often do you see $1,000 in a plate and a person can take out whatever he can use? “There were one or two people who were nervous about it, but that makes the parable real. There are always one or two who will bury their talents. But ethers are out using the money. Those who took it are responding.” The list cf activities planned with Finestead’s money resembles a basic course in inflation fighting. One man bought dog food in damaged containers and is reselling it. Young girls are organizing bake sales and boys bought supplies for such activities as lawn mowing and guitar lessens. The community will benefit from the experiment also with a chili supper out on by a couple who took a few bills from the plate. And a local printer just took some cash but has dedicated all orofits from wedding invitations back to the church. “One thing that upset people was where the money came from,” Finestead said. “Some had the feeling I dipped into church money just to demonstrate a parable. That’s not so. I gave them my mo- nev.” Finestead, who doubles as the local police chaplain, said feedback about the project is just starting to come in. But he said he is not worried about getting his money back and he expects a profit for the small church he took over in June. . -ft1 Kr Large foiled arms.
