Eut Keith Miller of Austin,
Episcopal layman and author o(
two best selling books, said the
small group movement can build
back into th# church cue of the
characteristics it had m its first
century of existence — openness.
Miller, was instrumental in es-
tablishing Laity Lodge at Leak-
ey, Tex., west of San Antonio.
Hidden in isolated wo.-is, the
lodge has become known as a
pia-e of spiritual revival in the
age of religious uncertainty.
Miller said the theological
revolution of the past decade
has been on» of doubt about
God. "It frightened a Jot of peo-
ple about their beliefs and their
Christian life ... (andt peoplp
had no choree in the structure
cf the church to express how
"Th* small group movement
got people together to talk about
life and about God.” Miller said
Robinson also noted the effect
of social upheaval on the church
“Churches .have not really
been in the leadership in this
movement.” Robinson saM.
Ho cited churches that once
prevented admittance of per-
sons on the basis of race, but
(ditch in recent years have
charged their policy,
"They were foPcw'ng the lead
oi society ami'not changing so-
ciety itself."- Robinson said.
Ihe effect on yivtn? people
was that, “seeing the church as

“We ought to do both —preach
