Movement From America
Helps Revitalize Church
By LOUIS CASSELS
UPI Staff Writer
LONDON ill'li A movement
imported from America is Mpinc
to revitalize the Church of Knp
land. This ancient institution, which
is the parent body of U.S. Kpisco
palians and Methodists, has long
suffered from a conspicuous lack
of popular supiwt.
Of the 40 million people who
live in Kngland" 27 million, or
two thirds, are nominally mem
bers of the established church
But only one-tenth of them attend
worship services on Easter Sun
day, the day of the biggest turn
out. Public apathy is particularly
evident in church finances. Even
if you count only the taster
communicants as church members,
the uvcrugcf ree-will contribution
from the man int he pew figures
out to less than 35 cents per mem
ber iht week.
U.S. Averages I.M Weekly
These figures may sound shock
ing in America, where more than
50 er cent of the church mem
bers attend worship services each

Dear Ann: What am I going to
do with my wife? Innocently I
fell in love with a sweet young
girl and I can't get over it.
I've decided to stay with my
wife and four .kids because we
used to get along fine before this
love affair hit, and I think we
can manage again.
But my wife is not at all und
erstanding. Ann. She keeps
asking me if I stll love her. I
tell her not to push me, that
I've decided to stay with her and
that should be enough.
I see the other girl occasional
ly and my wife knows it. She
doesn't mention it often, but
when she does I want to pack up
and leave. I can't stand that hurt
look in her eyes.s Why can't she
act like everything is normal and
give me a chance to get hold of
my emotions? After all, I'm
trying my best and I'm not a ma
chine. All Shook Up.
Dear Shook: So you're not a
machine and you're "trying
your bast." Wall I've got
ntwf your wift't not a ma
china either and she's probab
ly trying HER best, too. You
expect a great deal of a wom
an when you ask her to act
like everything is normal
when she knows her husband
is seeing a sweet young thing
on the side. If you're serious
about wanting to make a go of
your marriage cut all ties with
this girl and let your wife
know you've finished with it.
Dear Ann: My wife and I find
your replies sensible and practi
cal. We'd like your opinion on
'he following: Should a young
person (boy or girl) after finish
ing school and securing a well-
paying position, continue to live
with parents and not pay for
room and board?
We know of cases where the
young people live at home free,
buy themselves expensive cloth
i, cars and take trips while their
parents struggle to make ends
meet. Is this the modern way
,t doing things? Molly and Bill.
Dear Molly and Bill: People
who struggle to 'put their child
ren through school, then permit
them to live at home free while
they spend money on luxuries,
are not modern, they're stupid.
Even If parents do not need fi
nancial help they should accept
some compensation so their
children can maintain their
self-respect. Employed tons
and daughters living at home
should contribute between 25
and 30 per cent of their pay
checks to parents who need a
financial lift. This is much less
than it would cost them te live
Sunday, and where the average
financial contribution (counting
even the nominal members' is
about $1.20 a week. 1
But to English churchmen, they
are not surprising. This country
has experienced a religious re
vival since World War II, but its
impact has been felt primarily
among intellectuals, particularly
at the great Universities of Ox
ford and Cambridge, and in the
upper economic groups. The ma
jority of working people, far more
class conscious here than in
America, tend to identify the
church with landlords and manag
ers, and they arc not easily per
suaded that its religion is rele-
vent to their embattled lives.
The church is trying in many
different ways to break through
this inherited barrier of disaffec
tion. It i learning to speak out
boldly on issues of popular con
cern, from birth control to nucle
ar tests, lt is sending specially
trained industrial chaplains into
the factory areas of South Lon
don, Sheffield, Bristol and Bir
mingham, to make friends with
workers at their jobs and in their
homes, lt is appealing to young
people through a growing network
of youth clubs that sponsor every
kind of activity from rock-and-roll
music sessions to week-end reli
gious retreats. It is trying to
make worship more meaningful.
by soft-pedaling the unctuous ser
mon and restoring the sacrament
of Holy Communion to the central
place at the Sunday morning serv
Bear Fruit Noticeable
All of these things have begun
to bear fruit, not in a spectacular
way, but noticeably. The most im
portant change that has taken
place, according to church lead
ers, stems from an idea that was
quite frankly borrowed from
About five years ago. parishes
in several parts of England began
to experiment with the Christian
stewardship movement which has
long been the mainstay of church
finance in America.
Stewardship is based on the rec
ognition that a Christian cannot
"give" in the ordinary sense of
me world, because everything he
"owns" already belongs to God
