1 Columbia Union v A SUPPLEMENT TO THE REVIEW AND HERALD The Spencer, West Virginia, church, conservatively appraised at $65,000, was completed at a cost of $21,000. It seats 100. There are 35 members. (MORTEN JUBERG PHOTO) Bill Dull. His church was dedicated on his birthday. Story and Photos by NANCY THOMAS 1 TAKE one dedicated Adventist family, add a beautiful dream, mix with barrels of faith, and stir in loads of love. Sprinkle generously with miracles. Simmer for a few years in a dark county in West Virginia. And, praise the Lord, you build and dedicate a church with 36 baptized members and an attendance of 50 to 70 persons. The dedicated family in this case is Bill and Lois Dull. Their dream was to go where no one had gone before, light new fires where no one thought it possible, and build Prepared by Department of Communication Morten Juberg, Secretary; Elane Rogers, Associate MAY 24, 1973

Dull's first interest in dark-county work came during Moore's term of office. RIGHT: Theodore Carcich, vice-president, was a guest speaker for the afternoon dedication ceremony. Continued from page 1 a church where none had been. The place is Spencer, West Virginia, in Roane County. On Saturday, April 14, 1973, the Spencer church was dedicated. It was fitting that April 14 is Bill Dull's birthday. The Spencer church has the distinction of being one of the most unique churches in the Adventist denomination. It began as a dream. It was started without members. Its funds were supplied through prayer. The story began six and onehalf years ago when Bill and Lois came to West Virginia from Georgia to begin dark county work in Arnoldsburg, near Spencer. They came with $70 in their pockets, their heads full of dreams, and their hearts full of faith. They began to light the dark county through their simple, practical medical missionary work. Bill and Lois firmly believe that this is the most effective way of opening darkened areas and of building interest in the Adventist message. They use the welfare center, cooking schools, temperance programs, and health classes as opening wedges. Lois has even delivered several babies in her work near Spencer. The medical missionary work soon led to Bible studies, and this laid the groundwork for later baptisms. The Spencer church was started three years ago. The West Virginia Conference (now Mountain View Conference) gave the Dulls $1,500 to purchase land 2 Y for the church. A woman from Michigan heard of the dream church and gave $1,000. Bill tells of the miraculous provisions of funds. "The building program never had to stop for lack of funds. As the need came, the Lord provided. For example, we had the basement up when we got a call from Earl Schoonard, of the Mount Vernon, Ohio, area. He and 36 Adventists from Gallion and Mount Vernon wanted to come down and put up the framing for the church. I told them to come in two weeks. We had no money and couldn't borrow any. So we prayed for the Lord to give us $2,000. Within ten days we received a check for exactly $2,000. The cost of supplies for the framing was $1,950. Schoonard and his group gave tremendously of both time and money to help build the church." Another time Bill had planned two weeks of his time to work on the church but he had no money. He took a few days' vacation before starting work and while on his trip some friends gave him a camper trailer to sell and use the money on the church. He received $2,195 for the trailer and thus could carry on the church building. By now many of the people who had been taking Bible studies had been baptized, so for the carpeting Bill made a special appeal to the church members and received $260. At this time Bill had to attend some meetings in Georgia and decided to buy the carpeting at a factory there. The price of the carpet was $650. Before leaving home he and his family had special prayer that the additional funds would be provided. During the meetings a man gave him $300, bringing his total to $560. He was still $100 short, and he was to pick up the carpet the next morning. Bill and Herbert Ingersol, who was with him, prayed for another $100. The next morning nothing happened, so they went to the factory. As they were figuring the cost Bill asked if the company ever gave discounts to small churches. The man said No, he was sure they didn't, but he would check with the manager. The manager also said No, that they charged a flat $2.50 per yard for this carpet to everyone. But then he hesitated, looked at Bill a moment and said, "Let him have it for $2.10 a yard." Bill had $560. The total cost of the carpet $559.98! Over the past six years God has provided Bill and Lois Dull with many miracles, financial and otherwise. Bill believes this is because they have given of themselves unreservedly, financially and otherwise. They took God at His word, claimed His promises, and acted in faith, believing that He would provide and He did! Bill puts it this way, "God answers our prayers when we've done everything we can." The following quotation from Evangelism, page 63, was on the dedication program and could be called Bill and Lois' philosophy of practical Christianity and Adventism: God will have men who will venture anything and everything to save souls. Those who will not move until they can see every step of the way clearly before them will not be of advantage at this time to forward the truth of God. There must be workers now who will push ahead in the dark as well as in the light, and who will hold up bravely under discouragements and disappointed hopes, and yet work on with faith, with tears and patient hope, sowing beside all waters, trusting the Lord to bring the increase. God calls for men of nerve, of hope, faith, and endurance, to work to the point.

ABOVE: Mrs. Humphrey and Luke Mitchell sign in at Holmesburg Prison. Philadelphia Prison Ministry IF YOU should visit the Holmesburg Prison in Philadelphia any Sabbath afternoon after 2:00 P.M., you might walk in on an inspiring sermon preached by an Adventist to an unusually attentive group of men. You would probably pause in momentary disbelief at the sermon being preached by a woman. She is Mrs. A. B. Humphrey, the wife of a retired pastor. This prison ministry started about two and one-half years ago and has continued without letup ever since. Members of Philadelphia area churches accompany Mrs. Humphrey on the weekly visits. One of her mainstays has been Luke Mitchell, a fellow member of the Germantown congregation. Conference officials have not issued Mrs. Humphrey a ministerial license, but it would not be a bad idea. The one and one-half hour sermon this reporter listened to was of high caliber, Biblically oriented, and interesting. The 50 inmates who had gath- ered voluntarily in the recreation room weren't fretting about the length of the sermon. Seemingly unafflicted by the 30-minute, timeto-go-home syndrome prevalent among Adventist congregations, these men listened intently, eager to absorb every Spirit-filled word. In the course of her sermon Mrs. Humphrey made several allusions about the inmates being in "Arabia." This was a reference to the apostle Paul and his sojourn of training in that land. "I never ask the inmates, 'Why are you here?' or 'What are your charges?' This is not my affair," explained Mrs. Humphrey. "My only interest is to share my faith and love for Jesus and give them the pure, beautiful Word of God that will help them." Prison ministry is no place for a phony or a do-gooder. Inmates quickly spot this type of person. Mrs. Humphrey's acceptance with them has come from her genuine desire to help those who are incarcerated. "It gives me joy to stand before a judge and tell what I know about an individual and his rehabilitation," Mrs. Humphrey asserts. "Many men have been paroled and are making a positive contribution to society as a result of the work we have been able to do." Several have been baptized from the Holmesburg Prison ministry. Most of the 1,200 or more men in Holmesburg Prison have light sentences generally from six months to two years. Those requiring longer sentences are transferred to other penal institutions. The chances for rehabilitation are greater at Holmesburg, where the inmates are usually first-time offenders. The work of Mrs. Humphrey and her associates is highly regarded by officials of the institution. The doors were opened without question for this reporter when in the company of their lady preacher. The work is expanding to include other area prisons. Mrs. Humphrey hopes to inspire others to carry on this type of ministry. 3 v

Consecration of Uniontown Story by BETTY KOSSICK, Communications Secretary, Akron, Ohio, Church One room, eleven students, and one teacher named Miss Presley were the beginning of Seventh-day Adventist elementary education in Akron, Ohio. The year was Sixty-two years passed, and on a recent Sabbath evening, in 1973, six times a chorus of voices repeated: "We dedicate this school," as the constituents of the Uniontown, Ohio, school gathered for a mortgageburning ceremony. This day and the day preceding were a time of rejoicing, for it was a combination homecoming, mortgage-burning, and dedication service for the area believers. The Uniontown school is a monument of faith and sacrifice of several sister churches of the Ohio Conference. For years the school was housed at the Akron church at its various addresses. During this time many teachers have come and gone, but the most 4 v remembered would have to be Miss Mae Stebbins. Canton also maintained a church school for a time but it was eventually merged with the Akron school because of the imposition of State restrictions. In 1966 the churches of Akron, Barberton, Canton, and Ravenna built this modern, eight-grade school, complete with gymnasium, in a central location to serve the constituents. Students also attend from the Medina, Wooster, and Akron- Bethel congregations. Currently enrolled, too, are four students from Catholic and Lutheran families. Herbert Pritchard, secretarytreasurer of the Chesapeake Conference, came home to preach for the consecration service. He is a former student of the Akron school. The homecoming included past and present students, teachers, principals, auxiliary personnel, pastors, school board and church members. Also at the ceremonies were friends, neighbors, and educators of the public school system. Among them were: James Tays, superintendent of education of the Green Local Schools, Averille Thorn, principal of neighboring Greenwood Elementary School, and the Summit County school health nurse, Mrs. Robert Kammiller. Conference personnel who attended were: Philip Follett, president; J. R. Shull, superintendent of education; and Charles R. Beeler, communication secretary. Two former principals were present: C. Edward Price and S. C. Ullom. More than 350 persons attended. The dedication address was offered most appropriately by the man God sent to build this hall of learning, Melvin Sickler of the Sanitarium church in Washington, D.C. He was the former shepherd of the Akron church who encouraged the area churches to launch this

Special music for the weekend services was provided by the school glee club under the direction of Mary Reinhold. Wayne Johnson, Debbie Cate, and Alberta Johnson also lent their talents in music. The Uniontown school is located in a rural setting on a 14-acre plot including a small lake. It is a concrete block structure. Its facilities include four classrooms, a library, a principal's office, a gymnasium, and a kitchen, which also serves as a home economics laboratory. On the same property is a home for the principal. The plant, now free of debt, is valued at more than $200,000. Improvements are constantly being added. The teaching staff is composed of: John D. Cuva, principal, D. DeLashmutt, Evelyn Fralick, Ruth Russell, and Mary Jane Sample. Mrs. J. D. Cuva is the office secretary. THE following are recent district and pastoral changes in the Chesapeake Conference: The Brooklyn and the Baltimore First churches have been combined into a district. LAMoNT FRANCISCO is district pastor, with Tom KENDALL serving as his assistant. The Northwest church joins the Linthicutn district under the pastorate of NELSON EICHELBERGER. A. E. NEIL has left the Blythedale- Rising Sun district to become chaplain for Williamsport Sanitarium. He will also be water commissioner for Mount Aetna. Maryland.

JEAN REXRODE and Betty McCallin gave a cooking demonstration at Public School No. 215 in Highlandtown, Maryland, recently. One of the teachers at the school heard of the denomination's vegetarian foods from Betty McCallin and asked for the demonstration. Twenty parents attended, also the school principal, many teachers, and other staff members, making a group of 90. They were especially interested because of the high cost of meat. Two CHESAPEAKE CAMP MEETING JULY 12-21, 1973 different luncheons were served. Some of the foods on the menu were: K- roast, peanut butter hamburgers, vegeburgers, oatmeal-cottage cheese patties, pecan balls, chicketts, Wham, corned beef. and hot dogs. Proteena salad, Jell-Quik Salad. Cheese Cake, peanut butter cookies, No-Caf coffee and Kaffir tea rounded out the menu. Forty cans of food, donated by Loma Linda and Worthington food companies. were given to the guests. Each guest was also given literature on health foods and Amazing Facts Folder I. The group greatly enjoyed the tasty dishes served and expressed a desire to know more about these foods. Another demonstration is anticipated in the near future. J. A.

6 pennsylvania Easton Homemakers Learn Art of Meatless Cookery As IN all parts of the country, Easton homemakers were upset over the price of meat. The women of Easton elected a boycott committee and refrained from purchasing meat, as did the women all over the United States. Realizing this was a golden opportunity to share tasty Adventist vegetarian food with the homemakers of Easton, Mrs. Ruth Dettmore and her daughter, Mrs. Rose Mohn, decided to help the homemakers of Easton solve their dilemma. Mrs. Dettmore sent recipes to the Easton Express, a daily newspaper, and the recipe editor placed one of her vegetarian recipes in a prominent place in the newspaper. pinpoint LBERIY Religious Liberty Department, Columbia Union Conference Elvin Benton, Secretary PENNSYLVANIAN PUSHES PRAYERS What the public wants, the public should get, says a United States Senator from Pennsylvania. And that includes praying in public schools. Senator Richard Schweiker has proposed another Constitutional amendment that would provide that nothing in the Constitution shall prohibit state laws "providing for voluntary prayer in the public schools of that jurisdiction, nor shall it abridge the right of persons lawfully assembled in any public building to participate in voluntary prayer." Author of previous. unsuccessful proposals to provide for public prayer, Schweiker keeps working at it because his constituents keep working on him. One of Schweiker's aides said the school prayer issue "is the sort of thing that comes up when people write in to complain about the way things are going. Then they'll say, 'and another thing...' and complain about children not being able to pray in school." Much of the opposition to public prayer proposals has come from churches, ranging from very conservative Southern Baptists to rather liberal Unitarian Universalists. Church leaders see in prayer permissiveness a threat to churchstate separation. Senator Schweiker, a member of the very small Schwenkfelder Church, doesn't believe denominational officers represent fairly their membership: "The leaders of the churches are out of step and out of tune with most of the church people." One thoughtful observer commented that a difference of opinion between church members and church leaders doesn't establish that either is necessarily right. POSTMAN'S PRIVILEGE Mrs. Jean Achenbach, Easton member, got on a local talk show and invited the homemakers of the surrounding areas to come to the Easton church to sample some of the vegetarian food and take home free vegetarian recipes. Mrs. E. B. Wood placed an article in the local paper telling of a "Take a Taste" buffet. A news item was also sent to the local radio station inviting people to come. Mary Physher, an eighth-grade student at Stroudsburg church school, designed and painted a sign that was displayed in front of the church during the week. Several women of the church served as hostesses and greeted the guests. Many homemakers, as well as two men, came from Easton and Bethlehem to sample the vegetarian entrees and Your postman may or may not be a member of a union. But he may have to join one or lose his job. A bill has been introduced in the United States House of Representatives that would delete from the law the provision that now lets a postal employee choose freely whether or not to be a union member. Present law requires: Each employee of the Postal Service shall have the right, freely and without fear of penalty or reprisal, to form, join, and assist a labor organization or to refrain from any such activity, and each employee shall be protected in the exercise of this right. Leaders of right-to-work organizations and some religious groups are opposing the change. Right-to-work groups object to any attempt to allow for compulsory unionism. Some church groups, including Seventh-day Adventists, insist that, at the very least, a "conscience clause" accompany the deletion. The conscience clause would provide that no person with conscientious conviction against joining or supporting a union would be compelled to. Many Congressmen, even among those who support compulsory unionism, recognize the need for such a clause to protect those with sincere objections, and are expected 6 v to support its addition to the bill if the bill is approved. other meatless dishes. They experienced an adventure in the art of meatless cookery. They were given samples of food and recipes that were prepared by the women of the Easton church. Everyone seemed pleased with their first experience with vegetarian food, and as a result one couple is attending MISSION '73 evangelistic meetings. EUGENE B.

These cable outlets are located in Charlottesville, Danville, Martinsville, and Waynesboro, Virginia. Other cities will be added to the list in the near future. The idea of placing Faith for Today on the cable stations came from a communication seminar held by the last fall. An audition film of current Faith for Today programming was shown and the consensus was that the caliber of the programs was equal or superior to most prime-time television shows. At that time the only outlet in the conference for Faith for Today was a Richmond station at 7:30 A.M. on Sundays. Following the seminar, appointments were made with a number of cable companies to show Faith for Today audition film. The response was highly favorable in each case and resulted in the program being shown on prime time in each city. The current scheduling is as follows: Harrisonburg Ch 3 Sunday 12:00 noon Baltimore Ch 13 Saturday 6:00 AM Richmond Ch 8 Sunday 7:30 AM Cable Stations Charlottesville Ch 10 Tuesday 7:00 PM Danville Thursday 7:00 PM Ch 9 Monday 9:30 PM Martinsville Ch 6 Tuesday 4:30 PM Thursday 4:30 PM Friday 8:00 PM Waynesboro Ch 8 Monday 7:30 PM Tuesday 7:00 PM Wednesday 8:30 PM Thursday 8:00 PM Friday 7:30 PM C.

Total for the quarter was $232,585.36, a gain of $36, for the first quarter in BAPTISMS Through the dedicated efforts of ministers and laity, 91 were added to the church through baptism a record for Allegheny West. Twenty-five spring efforts are in progress. Twenty major efforts are scheduled for the summer. The appropriation for evangelism is the largest in Allegheny West history $56,000, with more than $11,000 spent for the purchase of tents alone. Allegheny West ministers recently spent two days studying evangelism techniques and earnestly praying in the "upper room" for the promised power. It is hoped that every member will join in a united thrust to finish the work quickly. Remember, Allegheny West needs you! H. L. CLEVELAND President Shiloh Members Plan New Church Building THE president and building fund committee of the Allegheny West Conference and the Cincinnati-Shiloh church board recently launched plans for a new church building. James Thomas, the church pastor, says his congregation is enthusiastic about having a new church and is cooperating wholeheartedly. Shiloh also recently held Youth Day. Morris Patterson, an Oakwood College, Huntsville, Alabama, ministerial student, was guest speaker. A new youth singing group was also featured. Many hearts were touched by the witness of the young people. TALFORD SALES Communications Secretary Cincinnati-Shiloh Church Cleveland Reports Records Set During First Quarter THE first quarter of 1973 has been a record-setting one. Everywhere in the Allegheny West Conference are seen signs of God's blessing to His people. For this, and much more, we are humbly grateful. MISSION '73 RALLIES For the first time the conference undertook to hold soul-winning training rallies. Samuel Thomas, conference lay activities secretary, led in eight rallies and challenged every member to personal involvement. He was fully supported by the conference executive officers. As a result, it is estimated that 80 per cent of the membership has been reached and committed to evangelism. Thomas believes taking the rallies to the people was the key that brought such success. Thomas also reports that the Message Magazine campaign is about 95 per cent complete. PUBLISHING Literature sales reached a record during the first quarter and also had a record month in March. Headed by Robert Smith, publishing secretary, 45 dedicated literature evangelists in four States delivered $35, Twenty-five persons were baptized and 14 to 20 new workers were recruited.

The subtle, incessant endeavor to manipulate the brainwaves of your sons and daughters? Do you wonder why you seem to be unable to keep your resolutions to do better? Do you tend toward an attitude of nonresponse? It's really not a battle for your mind. It's a battle for your SOUL! So Many Voices probes this problem in depth. It's a 16mm motion picture that uses live examples and animations to deal with the problems of living amid the steady bombardment via today's mass media. It shows why we should guard the avenues of the soul and urges that we pull the focus of our lives to the worthwhile, the eternal. So Many Voices was produced by Jan Doward, of the Youth Department. Churches and civic groups will find it a substantial aid in their work for youth and the family.

15 RESCUE THE MISSION DOLLAR The drop of 18 per cent in the value of the US dollar means a loss of 18 per cent in funds to overseas missions. The impact is the loss of more than $4,000,000 for the operation of overseas missions, the curtailment of mission workers, and a retreat for the church. The emergency has brought decisions for strict economy in future operation of church business. Simplicity in life-style will be required in the conduct of church affairs. But this isn't enough. If we are to hold the mission front firm, the dollar devaluation must be offset. If we are to advance, mission giving must be strengthened. YOU are key to the solution. On May 26 a freewill dollar-devaluation offering will be taken. The turn the mission program takes depends upon your response. Do we cut back? Or do we go forward?

16 communication is the name of the game It is no wonder that the communications vocation is booming! If there are more people on earth, that means more communicating has to happen. More writing and talking has to be done just for people to live, and Adventists have even more to do because they want to tell everyone what life is all about. At Columbia Union College our new program in public communication is designed to help you become a communications professional. Whether you want to become a specialist in health communications, journalism, editing and publications, public relations, broadcasting, instructional media, religious communications or community relations this is the program for you. Our laboratory is the city of Washington and we have access to the best array of operating Christian mass media available anywhere. For more information about our flexible curriculum that can meet your needs whether you are interested in one class, two years, or a full degree, write the: Public Information Officer Columbia Union College Takoma Park, Maryland (301)
