12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana October 1, Lay forum speaker sees world moving away from individualism By MJLP, PA'[']SON Catholt News Service ARLINGTON, Va. (CNS) -- The world is moving away from the individualistic orien- tation it has had for more than 2,000 years, Fordham Univer- sity theology professor Ewert Cousins told delegates at the National Lay Forum in the Washington suburb of Arling- ton. "Building a Culture of Life: A Civilization of Love and Jus- tice," was the theme of the Oct. 7-9 forum, which is a dialogue of Catholic lay leaders and bishops about faith, culture and the pursuit of the common good in U.S. society. (Among participants in the forum were Message editor Paul Leingang and his wife Jane. The Leingangs attended the forum in their role as na- tional presidents of the Christ- ian Family Movement.) "We stand at a great divide in history," Cousins said in his speech Oct. 8. "We are on the eve of a global community that is coming into being." Signs of the emerging global community he pointed out in- clude the dismantling of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Cur- tain and the rise of such multi- national structures as the United Nations and the Euro- pean Community. Cousins said the Catholic Church and the United States can play important roles in the shift. "The charism of Catholi- cism has been to embrace all of these different things," Cousins said, while "America has been a paradigm for what I'm proposing for the world" in that all cultures work in con- cert rather than at odds with each other. He termed the emerging global community "the second axial period in history." The first happened between the years 800-200 B.C., when sepa- rate religious and philosophi- cal movements in China, India SHETLER MOVING & STORAG E Evansville's First Family of Movers Evansville, Indiana S " Box 66 Montgomery, Indiana 47558 l Donald J.

One reason for the current shift in this day is because it is "the first time in history that people have had a sense im- pression of the earth as a whole," Cousins said, referring to the famous "Earthrise" photo taken from Apollo XI. "You don't see boundaries," he said. "You see it as the as- tronauts see it. It's the Earth, and it's our home. It's the great symbol of our time."
