Page G J - THE POST, Frederick, MM., Thursday, May 5,1977 Interior of Lutheran Church undergoing major renovations Church renovation » Although filled with scaffolding from floor to ceiling, the Evangelical Lutheran Church on E.

Also on the agenda for renovation is Rupp House, the 30-year-old parsonage adjacent to the church. (Photo by C. Kurt Hotter). Symposium set in Washington A symposium entitled, "Man, His Definition and Ultimate Potential: Startling Breakthroughs in the field of Parapsychology," will be held in Washington, D. C., Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, sponsored by the TAT Foundation. The symposium will be held at the Kay Spiritual Life Center of American University, corner of Massachusetts ·and Nebraska Avenues N.W., and will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day. The aim of the symposium is to create a mood of friendship and cooperation in which speakers of diverse backgrounds, who are acknowledged experts in the fields of philosophy, parapsychology, psychic phenomena and the mind sciences, can address themselves to the mysteries which surround human existence. Among the twelve speakers to be included will be Dr. Wilbur Franklin of Kent State University. Dr. Franklin was among the original Stanford Research Group which brought Uri Geller to America, and has risen to international prominence through his own experiments with psychokinesis and the Bermuda Triangle. Professor Robert Ayres of Holliston College in Massachusetts will discuss the biological discoveries which conclusively point to the existence of the human soul. Dr. James Cornie of Pittsburgh will discuss the latest scientific evidence for life after death, drawing on ancient texts as well as modern documentary reports. In addition to Saturday's lectures, the weekend will include panels on the topics of Dreams, ESP, Mental Potentials, and the relationship of Science to the research into parapsychological fields. The two-day symposium is open to the public and advance reservations can be obtained by calling 946*0467. Amid scaffolding and paint buckets, worship services continue at the Evangelical Lutheran Church on East Church Street, as the church interior undergoes a complete face-lift. Recently the congregation of the historic downtown church approved a $100,000 capital fund appeal to not only redecorate the church, but to renovate the interior of Rupp House, the 130-year- old parsonage that stands next to the church. In charge of the project is Gibbons of Baltimore, a firm headed by Francis Gibbons that specializes in redecorating the church interiors. (This is the same firm which recently completed the decor of St. John's Catholic Church on East Second Street.) Work on the church began last week and is expected to be completed by June. According to the Rev. Dr. Francis E. Reinberger, pastor, one of the basic objectives is to enhance the architectural design of the church itself -- the woodwork, windows, chancel and altar area. Special attention will be given to the stained glass windows, the columns and the background surrounding the painting of Christ in the chancel area. New carpeting will be laid on the lower level and the narthex will also be painted. Since 1968, under the direction of Dr. Reinberger, the congregation has worked hard to restore its properties. In recent years the exterior of both the church, the parsonage, 'and the Hahn Building have been restored. Extensive work was done on the education building, the Schaeffer Center. The exterior of the parsonage was restored in 1968; this year the congregation voted to renovate the entire interior of the building. According to Rev. Reinberger, "The renovation is being undertaken in order to make the house safer and more economical." It is expected that bids will be let shortly and that work will begin in early summer. -The Reinberger family will move into the apartment on the second floor of .the Hahn Building during the construction. Serving on the committee which Control of water heat saves energy, money You can beat the heat of high utility costs by turning down the control of your hot water heater, says the National Association of Realtors. Nearly every hot water heater has a control which permits the owner to select such settings as warm, very warm, and hot. Too many people keep the setting on hot when they don't need to, wasting valuable energy heating water to a temperature higher than necessary. Keep the temperature down to 110-120 degrees. Such a waste of energy results in a higher utility bill for the owner, as well as unnecessary waste of - electricity or natural gas. Local Realtors are offering a folder, "The Energy Crisis Hits Home!" which contains tips on saving money and energy.
