National NOW Tlmaa, May, 1*80 • The British Council of Churches Is urging young people to address their prayers to "Parent God" Instead of to "Father God" and to confess to the sin of sexism. In a book, Pocket Praise, published by the Council and Intended for use by young people throughout Britain and Ireland, prayers include: • "Give us a vision of equality, Which transcends that of the human lawmakers." BUS TRIP TO CHICAGO e "Free us from the prejudice about the roles of the sexes. Make us aware of what we have done when we deny another's potential by categorizing that person in terms of sex." e "Teach parents, Parent God, the art of allowing their grown-up children to live their own lives." Next, the Council is planning to relense a controversial document on humnn sexuality. Gail Anderson 35 survivors on a lifeboat, sharing food, passing from hand to hand the bread and the wine, mile after mile after mile, feeling closer to the passenger beside you behind you, hour after hour. Texas feminists making the trek, 22 hours long ^n a bus to Chicago for the National March for ERA RATIFICATION in Illinois, May 10, 1980. The trip started with a flight from Houston to Dallas where our local group of 10 met delegations from Austin, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Richardson (where1 s that? 11 )„ The Houston/Bay Area group who met at Houston Intercontinental Airport facing a 1500-mile journey were Barbara Baruch, daughter Rebecca Coleman and Judy Emerson from the First Unitarian Church Women1 s Group, Dana Kelly, Bob Doughty, Lou McFadden, Gail Anderson, Sue Ann Cox Terri Brown and Jan Lustiz. We arrived in Dallas to be met by Dallas County NOW members who took us to their homes for late night snacks and sleep. Up at dawn and driving to the bus terminal to meet other sleepy-eyed feminists waiting for the Greyhound life boat. The first woman we met at departure from Austin was Bay Area's Freddie Chiddix1 daughter, Susan Chiddix. With a huff and a roar and a last minute head-count the bus left Dallas. A high poir.t of the trip was when a bus rider put an ERA YES bumper sticker on a Coors delivery truck. Sleeping, singing, snacking, sharing, hours and smiles and miles later, we arrived in Dallas at 3:00 A.M. With women sleeping on the floor, hanging from the overhead luggage racks and whispering wearily, the hearty survivors slept four hours in the Chicago Greyhound bus terminal. Morning light-one day and two nights from our Houston departure found us joining 50, 000 other feminists from all over the country for the most moving, the largest and most enthusiastic ERA Rally since Washington's extension March. Tired? Yes. Muscles sore from sitting? Yes. Laughing, hugging, singing, chanting, we made it1. The Houston delegation had the youngest marcher (age 10) from Texas and only two male bus riders . Out of 50, 000 marchers the Texas delegation set records for singing(nThe Eyes of Texas Are Upon You" to ratify ERA, chanting and ya-hooing. Eight hours later the small group of hearty souls re-boarded the bus bound home for Texas. We are changed, we are closer, we are re-newed. The Chicago trip bus riders plan a reunion this summer ■ we will meet again
