London Irish look for an NYC lift

first_img By Graham Jenkins“I’ll make a brand new start of it, in old New York,” sang Frank Sinatra in his legendary homage to the equally iconic city on the east coast of the United States.It is a lyric that many will be familiar with but it will strike a particular chord with London Irish chief executive Bob Casey as his side ready themselves for their high-profile Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens in the same sprawling metropolis on Saturday.The Exiles embark on the first regular season game staged outside England on the back of four straight Premiership losses that have left them firmly rooted to the bottom of the table and eight points adrift of fellow strugglers Newcastle as we enter the season run-in.Without a victory since their home win over Worcester last month, which was just the third they have managed in the league this season, could a dramatic change of scene inspire a turnaround in the Exiles’ fortunes?The holy grail: Bob Casey with the Premiership trophy in London’s BT Tower“I really think it could and we’re really excited about it,” said Casey, a former fan favourite and club captain who was appointed CEO last summer.“I have been really impressed with the coaches and playing group and how they’ve stuck together. It has been a very difficult season, we haven’t come out moaning about referees and we have had probably the biggest injury list I have seen in my time at London Irish, but we are getting on with the job and very focused on what we have to do and we’ll take it week by week.”The ground-breaking fixture in New York is the result of a tri-party agreement between the club, Premiership Rugby and sports marketing firm The Legacy Agency aimed at capitalising on the sport’s growing popularity Stateside.“It is something we have always wanted to do and once the new owners took over the club it was something we wanted to do with the London Irish brand,” explained Casey,“Our former chairman Dave Fitzgerald, who sadly passed away recently, was a real driving force behind it so this is a big part of his legacy. Our new owners have also been very supportive and very influential in making this happen.”Rare win: Topsy Ojo in action during London Irish’s victory over Worcester. Photo: Getty ImagesA victory is clearly the primary target as Irish battle desperately to secure their top-flight status, but there is arguably an even greater goal – the task of rescuing the very club itself.“We’ve got to try and grow the London Irish brand,” said Casey. “You have got to say that over the last four or five seasons it hasn’t been growing at all. It has been a club in decline and the new owners are determined to drive this club forward. The game in America is a key part of that strategy to drive the club and the brand forward.”Casey is confident that the fixture, which will be staged at the 25,000-capacity Red Bull Arena that is the usual home of the New York Red Bulls soccer franchise, will capture the imagination of the local population. That challenge continues in New York and, as Ol’ Blue Eyes once advised, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.

Photo: Getty Images center_img “There’s been a big appetite in New York for this,” insisted Casey. “There is obviously the rugby community and the Irish community but there is also the American public and they love their sport.“We know that rugby is fantastic spectator sport and then there’s the game in terms of the contact, the physicality and some of the tries, I think they will really enjoy it.”Main man: Tom Coventry is guiding London Irish through a tough season. Photo: Getty ImagesThe game, and perhaps the prospect of experiencing the world-famous St Patrick’s Day celebrations in New York, has also enticed many of their regular fans to cross the Atlantic for the game.“A few hundred have bought official packages but we reckon about 600-700 fans will be travelling,” revealed Casey, who also insists, contrary to some reports, that fans have been largely supportive of the venture.“We haven’t faced much criticism because we have communicated with our supporters all along. We didn’t include this fixture in our season-ticket package and we always said to the fans that we were looking at the possibility of taking a fixture away from Reading and we made it as accessible as possible for them.”For that support, Casey is clearly grateful. “We are very lucky we have very loyal and knowledgeable supporters who want what is best for the club. If they can see that this will help grow the club and grow the brand and potentially sponsorship then they are very supportive.”Success on the field against defending champions Saracens, who claimed a 24-14 at Allianz Park earlier this season, would clearly be some priceless points in their battle for survival – but what does success look like off the field?“I think we are looking at between 13,000 and 15,000 fans which would be great in Year One,” said Casey. “Hopefully there will also be a really good atmosphere at the stadium, a good and competitive game of rugby and I don’t see why that can’t happen.”Flying the flag: London Irish fans turn out in force for St Patrick’s Day games. Photo: Getty ImagesThe showpiece event is the first in what is a three-year agreement between Premiership Rugby and The Legacy Agency, who are shouldering the financial risk posed by the venture, but Irish’s future participation clearly depends on their ability to avoid relegation.“Yes, we’ve got to take it one year at a time but if this goes well I don’t see why not,” said Casey, who is well aware the club faces a battle on more than one front.“It’s a big task, when the new owners took over the club (in 2013) it was in bad old state on and off the field so we have a real challenge on our hands. But obviously I love the club and we have some great people at London Irish, the owners have a clear vision ass to where they want to take the club and I believe in it. We have a lot of hard work to do but we will get there.” TAGS: London IrishSaracens last_img read more

Wales: Five things we learnt v England

first_img TAGS: Highlight Wales missed a legit opensideBe it Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric, Ellis Jenkins or James Davies, the Welsh openside debate has become increasingly polarising. Nearly as polarising as whether you think Donald Trump is a blonde haired, melting ice-cream faced clown, or a massive blonde haired, melting ice-cream faced clown. However, on whichever side of the Welsh openside debate you fall, Saturday’s performance against England was hugely influenced by Wales not playing a specialist in that position. Wales were caught out on numerous occasions in the seven channel. In fact, after just 23 minutes Dan Lydiate had missed three tackles; a number he’d normally miss over 160 minutes.Donkey work: Dan Biggar was forced into one-on-one tackles with England’s big ball-carriersThe lack of a seven shutting down the ten yards on the openside, of first phase defence, meant that Dan Biggar was left making one-on-one tackles with players who are way over his kg limit. In those situations the seven would usually go low, with the lighter outside-half going high. The lack of defensive confidence in the seven channel also meant that Jamie Roberts was forced to defend more narrowly than he usually would, which resulted in him uncharacteristically missing some tackles on his outside shoulder. Wales will need a seven on the field and a seven on the bench against Sam Cane and Ardie Savea in New Zealand. Ellis Jenkins’ late addition to the squad, as a replacement for the injured Lydiate, may be the perfect opportunity to rectify the situation.Wales need two distributors in the backlineWales needing two distributors in the backline obviously isn’t a new observation, but the lack of it is becoming more obvious as the fixtures pass. Against England, as with virtually all Wales’ performances over the past 18 months, the over reliance on a straight, hard carry in the twelve channel is no longer enough to create space outside. On Sunday, the Welsh backline once again resorted to first phases dominated by a large carrier running ‘out to in’ – the idea being to hold the defence narrow and tight.Distributor: Scott Williams’ return to the backline is welcomeAnd whilst this tactic is effective, it can’t be the only option that Wales have. England, as do all the All Blacks, the leading Super Rugby teams, Connacht, Exeter and Wasps, utilise a second distributor who can run behind a screen of dummy runners, take a short deep pass from the first receiver, and then use their 13, 15 and wing to move around the defence. With Scott Williams back in the Welsh squad it is an option open to Wales, even when he plays thirteen. It is however something that Wales rarely utilise.Hallam Amos nails the 14 shirtRhys Webb, Jake Ball, Ross Moriarty and Rob Evans all had good individual performances, despite a substandard team performance, but it was Hallam Amos’ cap that will have been most reassuring for Wales. As with many Welsh wings in the current setup, Amos in his recent Welsh run outs has received little ball – on occasions Oliver Twist had more luck asking to be ‘fed’ than the Welsh back three.Holding his own: Hallam Amos’ running was one of Wales’ bright spotsBut against England, Amos made the most of opportunities – he was joint top for clean breaks for both teams and top for defenders beaten. Even amongst the fine performances from Marland Yarde, Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson, Hallam Amos held his own. The genuinely impressive number however was his metres gained, 118, way ahead of any other player on either team – a number which included very few cheap kick return yards. Promising, very promising Hallam.Wales don’t have to worry about locks. As the England game showed, Wales have a few selection issues ahead of the tour to New Zealand, thankfully locks aren’t one of them. Both Jake Ball and Alun-Wyn Jones played well at Twickenham and particularly Ball. Both players ability to do the basics has never been in doubt, but to see them passing ‘one-out’ from the standard contact point was encouraging – it is something that Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick, the Kiwi locks, execute very well.Assured: Both Jake Ball (pictured) and Alun Wyn Jones are decent handlers of the ballIn fact both AWJ and Ball passed the ball more than they carried; a rarity for a northern hemisphere lock. Ball’s performance also gives Wales further depth in a position where they already excel. There may be issues in midfield and the back row, but Wales’ strength at lock runs deep and is one of the least concerns ahead of the first test in NZ.The new approach to the back row seems overly radicalThe Welsh selectors approach to the back row for England, and the tour to New Zealand was/ is certainly radical. Wales, of all the tier one nations have always maintained a pure back row mix. A fetching seven, with a tackling six, combined with carrying eight. Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton and Taulupe Faletau have been one of the most metronomic combinations in the last decade of rugby. Even when there have been calls for tweaks to the Welsh back row, playing two sevens for example, those calls were often dismissed. Until now, that is.At sixes and sevens: The lack of a balanced backrow led to defensive gaps and England triesPrior to the late inclusion of Ellis Jenkins, this current squad was made up almost entirely of utility back row players – even Sam Warburton has regularly played at six for Cardiff Blues this season. The adjustment of the Welsh back row to a host of 6.5’s isn’t itself a problem, as England outplayed Wales on Saturday with a utility back row – the real problem is Wales changing their back row system two weeks before they play the best team in the world, three times on the bounce.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.

Worcester v Bristol lives stream: How to watch from anywhere

first_img Worcester v Bristol lives stream: How to watch from anywhereWinning is a habit. And while Worcester Warriors won their last Gallagher Premiership home game, 29-14 against Quins, they had lost an alrming ten league games on the bounce before that… And in their most recent outing, away to Chiefs, they were trounced 59-7. It’s time to discover that habit.They will have full-back Melani Nanai returning to that cause, after he served a ban for a no-arms tackle on Jonny May in the loss to Gloucester on 15 August. There are a few other inuries to contend with, but captain Ted Hill will lead from the front and stalwart stars Nick Schonert and Anton Bresler will always dig in.Bristol Bears too would like to return to winning ways. Still third in the league but only a point ahead of Wasps and just three ahead of Bath, they have lost the last two league outings on the spin. They were brushed aside by Sale last time out. They keep rotating, though, with boss Pat Lam making 13 changes to the team. Steven Luatua captains the visitors as star names come flooding back.Will the likes of Charles Piutau, Semi Radradra, Kyle Sinckler and an electric bench prove the difference?Worcester: Melani Nanai; Tom Howe, Ollie Lawrence, Francois Venter, Noah Heward; Duncan Weir, Francois Hougaard; Ethan Waller, Neil Annett, Nick Schonert, Anton Bresler, Graham Kitchener, Ted Hill (captain), Matt Kvesic, Cornell du Preez.Replacements: Isaac Miller, Callum Black, Richard Palframan, Andrew Kitchener, Matt Cox, Gareth Simpson, Billy Searle, Ashely Beck.Bristol: Charles Piutau; Luke Morahan, Semi Radradra, Siale Piutau, Henry Purdy; Callum Sheedy, Harry Randall; Max Lahiff, Bryan Byrne, Kyle Sinckler, Ed Holmes, Chris Vui, Steven Luatua (captain), Dan Thomas, Nathan Hughes.Replacements: Harry Thacker, Jake Woolmore, John Afoa, Joe Joyce, Ben Earl, Andy Uren, Ioan Lloyd, Piers O’Conor.

Liturgy commission releases proposed same-gender blessing rite

first_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA Press Release Service Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Liturgy commission releases proposed same-gender blessing rite General Convention to consider trial use of rite along with marriage study Tags Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR General Convention 2012, Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs General Convention, Same-Sex Blessings March 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm Resources for Blessing Same-Gender Relationships lack vital specific Scriptural support ensuring God’s blessing for two same sex persons committing to build up lifelong relationship, as we find in traditional marriage between a man and a woman. By holy matrimony the man and the woman buildup relationship as Husband and Wife and become one flesh thru love and bear fruits of divine grace in delivering baby to the glory of God in future days to come. They remain holy and united within family environment until death separate them. God blessed Jacob with children like stars in the sky.But on the contrary resources provided Christian theological support for same sex matrimony in general term which is applicable irrespective of marital status for all Christ loving children of God, who follow His commandment, love your God and neighbor. There is no biblical support specifically for this rite in the resources. It is true that like all that glitters is not gold, all love like activities is not godly love. Christ’s body and blood shed for all who remain within His flock of sheep, and practice His teaching in according to words of God. We do not see God and could not believe anything other than teaching in the Bible. It is a great challenge for the Church as stated in the resources to be united with rest of the Christian. It is my sincere prayer that God would reveal the truth who are in the dark.

Well said. Jesus’ first words from the Gospel of Mark come in the form of a command. He said, “Repent and believe the good news.” It seems that in our cultures today so many of us have forgotten the meaning of Christ’s word “repent”. Perhaps we don’t understand what sin is either.

They can be found here in the Documents section. A direct link to the PDF document is here.In addition to the proposed rite, the excerpts released March 8 include a theological reflection on blessing same-gender relationships and two related legislative resolutions that the SCLM will recommend to General Convention when it meets in Indianapolis July 4-12.“We really wanted to give bishops and deputies in particular an opportunity to understand the material prior to General Convention, and providing it to the wider church then allowed bishops and deputies to hear from the wider church as part of their discernment about how they might respond at convention,” the Rev. Ruth Meyers, Hodges-Haynes professor of liturgics at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific and SCLM chair, told Episcopal News Service in a telephone interview shortly before the excerpts were posted.The SCLM’s work comes in response to General Convention’s 2009 mandate (via Resolution C056) that it work with the House of Bishops to collect and develop theological resources and liturgies for blessing same-gender relationships and report to this summer’s 77th meeting of convention.The proposed rite is titled “The Witnessing and Blessing of a Lifelong Covenant.” Marriage is specifically not mentioned because, as Meyers has frequently pointed out, C056 called for development of resources for blessing same-gender relationships and not solemnizing marriages of same-gender couples. However, the introductory page of the rite notes that “to comply with the laws of the civil jurisdiction in which the rite is celebrated, the priest shall consult the bishop, who may authorize modifications in the Pronouncement” section of the rite.Meyers told ENS that the commission wanted “to leave leeway for” bishops in such settings who have already or may yet decide that clergy in their dioceses may officiate at the civil portion of a marriage or civil union. She said such a decision may necessitate a change in the wording of the portion of the liturgy in which the presider says “Inasmuch as N. and N. have exchanged vows of love and fidelity in the presence of God and the Church, I now pronounce that they are bound to one another in a holy covenant, as long as they both shall live. Amen.”The rite, meant to occur within the context of the Holy Eucharist, includes a suggested extension of the opening acclamation; an exhortation (which traditionally begins “Dearly beloved:) specific to the nature of the rite; four suggested new collects; lists of appropriate Old Testament and Epistle lessons, psalms and gospel readings; a new preface to the eucharistic prayer and a new post-communion prayer.The “witnessing of the vows and blessing of the covenant” section includes newly written additions to a structure and elements that echo to the Book of Common Prayer’s marriage rite.Meyers told ENS that the commission’s liturgical task group received “hundreds” of blessing rites, some dating to the 1970s, submitted by Episcopalians in response to a request from the SCLM. Based on a set of liturgical and theological principles for reviewing the rites, they read each one and borrowed from some of them, she said. A sampling of the rites is here.A press release from the church’s Office of Public Affairs said the theological reflection notes that the SCLM has reviewed more than 30 years of General Convention’s deliberation on same-gender couples, especially Resolution 2000-D039, that identified characteristics the church expects of couples living in marriage and other lifelong committed relationships: “fidelity, monogamy, mutual affection and respect, careful, honest communication, and the holy love which enables those in such relationships to see in each other the image of God.”SCLM’s first resolution asks the convention to commend its report to the church for study and to allow trial use of the liturgical rite beginning on the First Sunday of Advent 2012 (Dec 2). The proposed trial-use period would allow for a churchwide review and SCLM would report to the next meeting of General Convention in Salt Lake City in 2015 on how all the materials were used.That resolution also requests that convention extend C056’s provision of “generous pastoral response,” particularly to bishops in dioceses within civil jurisdictions where same-gender marriage, civil unions or domestic partnerships are legal. Some bishops have cited that provision in allowing clergy to officiate at the marriages or civil unions of same-gender couples in states where those unions are legal.The second resolution asks convention to form a task force that would guide the church “to identify and explore biblical, theological, historical, liturgical, and canonical dimensions of marriage” during the 2013-2015 triennium. This task force, Meyers said in the release, would help the church study the issues raised by the marriage equality debate in civil society.Meyers told ENS that the decision to release excerpts of the report now was based on the timing of a series of meetings across the church in which bishops and deputies will get their first look at the final report. SCLM members will present the report to regularly scheduled pre-convention provincial synod meetings, which began with Province IX’s gathering during which participants were briefed on the materials March 7.The House of Bishops also will get a briefing during its March 16-20 meeting at Camp Allen Conference and Retreat Center in Navasota, Texas. Given C056’s mandate, the bishops “have been part of the conversation all the way along and they are very eager to see this material,” Meyers said.“And at the same time because of our bicameral polity … it seemed important to make it available to deputies for conversation as well,” Meyers added.Members of the House of Deputies will be able to discuss the excerpts in the online forum on House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson’s website, the release said. The discussion will begin March 16 and end March 23.“Given the number of people who were going to have access to [the excerpts] among the bishops and deputies, it seemed best simply to release [them] so that others in the church who wanted to follow the discussion on the deputy forum, then they could do that and have access to the material to understand what the discussion is,” Meyers explained. People who are not deputies can read postings on the deputy online forum but may not participate in that discussion.She said she hoped that bishops and deputies would talk amongst themselves about the materials and that they would also find ways to hear from Episcopalians in their dioceses.“I hope that people do take time as that old Anglican collect says of Scripture: ‘read, mark, learn and inwardly digest’ [Proper 28] – at least to read and mark, and really grapple with what’s there because there’s a substantial theological essay here,” she told ENS. “I would also hope that other Episcopalians would also read and study this material and be in conversation with their deputies and bishops, and let them know their hopes and concerns and questions so that bishops and deputies can come to convention and then listen to one another again, listen to the testimony in public hearings and be prepared to make a decision.”Above all, Meyers said she hoped the church would “engage this with a depth of prayer and thinking to be attentive to the work of the Spirit in our midst.”The commission said in the preface to its report that “for some Episcopalians, this material will resonate well with their long-standing experience and theological reflection; for others, the call from the 2009 General Convention represents a new and perhaps perplexing moment in the life of our church.”“We take that difference seriously,” the commission said, adding that “all of us belong equally to the Episcopal Church and to the worldwide Anglican Communion and, most of all, to the universal Body of Christ. This theological resource honors the centrality of Scripture among Anglicans, interpreted in concert with the historical traditions of the church and in the light of reason.”A summary of the process SCLM used to develop the rite and accompanying resources is available here in an October 2011 ENS report when the commission put the finishing touches to its work.The full set of resources the SCLM has developed includes an introduction explaining the process that has been undertaken, a survey of legal and canonical matters, pastoral resources for preparing a couple for a liturgical blessing, a discussion guide for congregations, and an overview of GC legislation. These, along with the excerpts released March 7, will be published in April as part of the collection of reports to General Convention from all official commissions, committees, agencies, and boards of the Episcopal Church known as the Blue Book. It will be posted online here.The commission is recommending that the resources be published as “Liturgical Resources I” (thus not part of an existing official liturgical book or series in The Episcopal Church), a document that would include pastoral and teaching materials as well as the theological essay and liturgy, Anderson said in a March 8 letter to deputies and first alternate deputies. She added the reminder that none of the material is currently authorized for use in the Episcopal Church.For more information contact SCLM at [email protected]— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. March 9, 2012 at 9:05 am Thank you for communicating the release of this information. I really appreciate the detailed effort by so many to get us to this place, the careful labelling in the documents that they are draft, for study and not approved, the faith, and transparency has been demonstrated.

No obstante, agregó Jefferts Schori, “ello abrirá el proceso presupuestario tradicional a nuevas maneras de pensar”. Y Anderson dijo que “tenemos un proceso que permite más aportes”.Jefferts Schori indicó durante la conferencia de prensa que las discrepancias específicas que el Consejo listó en su memorando no pueden corregirse ahora en la versión presupuestaria propuesta. “[Esas discrepancias] son simplemente un reflejo de las intenciones del Consejo”, agregó.Las reglas conjuntas de la Convención General (II.10 10 (a) exigen que el Consejo dé al Programa de Presupuesto y Finanzas una propuesta presupuestaria en no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención. El programa de Presupuesto y Finanzas inicia las audiencias sobre el presupuesto el 3 de julio en Indianápolis, un día antes del inicio oficial de la 77ª reunión de la Convención General. Ni el Consejo ni el PBF tienen autoridad para cambiar el documento del presupuesto hasta ese momento.Anderson expresó durante sus palabras de clausura que ella tenía “gran fe en la sabiduría colectiva del pueblo de esta Iglesia y creo que la Convención General puede hacer lo que sea necesario para comenzar nuestra renovación”.El Consejo aprobó varias resoluciones en su reunión de tres días en referencia al racismo, incluida su compromiso con un permanente adiestramiento antirracista. En su mensaje a la Iglesia, el Consejo dijo que había una “acalorada y apasionada discusión” centrada en “cómo distinguir las diferencias entre el adiestramiento antirracista y el adiestramiento en diversidad e inclusión”.El racismo, dijo Jefferts Schori durante sus comentarios de clausura, “al igual que el pecado, tiene consecuencias que perduran, y nuestras dificultades en hablar acerca del racismo son simplemente una expresión de algunas de esas consecuencias. Eso no se curará en esta vida, sin embargo somos llamados a seguir luchando con ello”.El Consejo Ejecutivo concluyó su reunión con una Eucaristía. La Rda. Gay Jennings, miembro del Consejo proveniente de la diócesis de Ohio, cuyo período concluye, hizo un llamamiento a los que ella llamó “los siervos de la Iglesia” a discernir lo que deben abandonar para que puedan “tratar de tomar algo nuevo y diferente que sea vivificador y transformador”.“¿Qué debemos abrazar como Iglesia a fin de ser libres y ser transformados a Su semejanza de gloria en gloria?” preguntó ella.“Debemos recordar que nos dedicamos juntos a la restauración de la creación. No más falsas opciones entre misión y gobierno”, dijo Jennings. “No más falsas guerras entre individuos o grupos. No más competir por terreno, o poder o control. Más bien, tenemos que encontrar modos de mirar juntos hacia delante, y vislumbrar y encarnar el futuro que Dios nos llama a abrazar -y yo ruego que nos dediquemos nosotros mismos a ello con una entrega sin reservas”.También el 20 de abril, el Consejo:Envió una resolución “A” a la Convención General en la que reafirmaría el apoyo de la Iglesia a los empeños de ayudar a la diócesis de Haití en su obra de reconstrucción luego del terremoto.Oyó que la firma de bienes raíces Cushman & Wakefield está empezando lo que un miembro del Consejo, el Rdo. Canónigo Tim Anderson (Diócesis de Nebraska) llamó “un estudio muy completo” de la propiedad inmobiliaria de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera [Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society] de la Iglesia Episcopal. El obispo Stacy Sauls, funcionario jefe de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo ante el comité de Finanzas para la Misión, del Consejo , un día antes, que el estudio incluye tanto al centro denominacional de la Iglesia en el 815 de la Segunda Avenida en Nueva York como una manzana urbana en Austin, Texas, que se compró con la intención de construir un nuevo edificio para los archivos de la Iglesia Episcopal. Tanto él como Anderson afirmaron que el estudio también exploraría asuntos tales como el costo de relocalizar el centro denominacional y su impacto en el personal del mismo. Ambos dijeron que Jon Bruno, el obispo de la diócesis de Los Ángeles, es quien costea el estudio.Oyó la presentación de un plan empresarial para una Cooperativa Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, que Sauls dijo que sería concebida como una coalición voluntaria de diócesis, congregaciones y otras instituciones afiliadas a la Iglesia para compartir servicios profesionales y realizar economías de escala. Él propuso comenzar un proyecto experimental con cinco diócesis que compartieran servicios de contabilidad y financieros, con la intención de expandirlo para incluir a más participantes así como la compra de otros bienes y servicios. Sauls sugirió que las funciones administrativas de las diócesis podían cruzar sus fronteras geográficas “sin distanciar al obispo del pueblo”. Habría una tarifa por los servicios, dijo Sauls, pero los participantes ahorrarían en los costos totales. El anteproyecto del presupuesto para el trienio 2013-2015 incluye capital inicial para la cooperativa, pero el proyecto se haría autosuficiente en cinco años, agregó él. Los miembros del Consejo instaron a Sauls a utilizar los suministradores locales y él estuvo de acuerdo, diciendo que sospechaba que utilizar tales suministradores sería un factor en el logro de ahorros.Aprobó un manual del empleado completamente revisado para los empleados de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera. Jennings, miembro del comité de Gobierno y Administración para la Misión, dijo que los meses de trabajo dedicados al proyecto fueron un modelo de cómo los miembros del Consejo y el personal pueden trabajar juntos. Ella también destacó a John Colón, director de la administración de recursos humanos, diciendo que era “cortés, digno [y] conocedor”.Dedicó tiempo evaluando la labor del Consejo durante el trienio y la experiencia de los miembros en su servicio en el Consejo. La evaluación se llevó a cabo a través de conversaciones de mesa con comentarios expuestos en el sitio extranet de los miembros. No hubo ninguna discusión de grupo.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4(1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].— La Rda.

They include a children’s prayer (written by 10-year-old Jackie from South Africa) and are available here.This year’s World Environment Day theme – Think.Eat.Save – encourages people worldwide to reduce their “foodprint.” According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), every year 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted. At the same time, one in every seven people in the world go to bed hungry and more than 20,000 children under the age of five die daily from hunger-related causes.Makgoba said: “In the story of the feeding of the five thousand we read “everyone ate, and had enough” (Mark 6:42).  This is a beautiful image of sharing, with everyone’s needs being met, and nobody going hungry. There is enough food in the world for our need, there is not enough for our greed. This World Environment Day I encourage Anglicans everywhere to think about what they eat, to eat food which is healthy and sustainable and to stop wasting food. Let us share today our daily bread.”The annual World Environment Day, launched in 1973, is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It is commemorated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern Hemisphere.The Sunday nearest to World Environment Day is celebrated in the church as Environment Sunday, although it can be observed on a date that suits individual churches.A soundbite featuring Makgoba may be downloaded for use on radio and online at www.churchofengland.org/media/1772243/archbishopcapetownmp3big.mp3World Environment Day is hosted by a different country every year – this year Mongolia – and has a different theme. It is commemorated with an international exposition in the week of June 5.

Archbishop Justin meets Pope Francis in Rome

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Belleville, IL Comments (4) Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ June 14, 2013 at 9:47 pm Thank you for this report. But I gagged on the soundbyte from Archbishop Welby, that Christians must reflect “the self-giving love of Christ” by offering love and hospitality to the poor, and “love above all those tossed aside” by present crises around the world. EXCUSE ME? Isn’t he following in Rowan’s steps by ignoring the gay men and lesbians who have been very actively “tossed aside” by the leadership of the Anglican Communion?? Of course, the more desperately “tossed-aside” people are the minorities in Africa and Asia. We shall see how much compassion either the Pope or the Archbishop lives out toward them. Actions, please. Not just words. Archbishop of Canterbury, Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Albany, NY Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs June 14, 2013 at 9:33 pm I hope Archbishop Welby won’t feel too at-home in Rome. Pope Francis was personally hospitable, company manners, after all; but the present Roman Catholic Church would not be welcoming to certain things Anglican: reliance on experience, women priests, and freedom of thought come immediately to mind. Pope Benedict decreed that Catholics may not even discuss ordaining women! We’d have to send ours packing . “Get thee to a convent, ladies, where you will be taught your place.” We’re ready for our bishop to be appointed by a man in Rome, who may or may not so much as even consult locally, are we?! If one does not agree that Mary was conceived without original sin and that she never died, but was “assumed” into heaven, one is anathema, that is, cast out of the Church, the way to God blocked until one recants and repents. Really? Really! Kicked out before we even joined.There is much that is beautiful and good about the RCC, but it is corrupt to its core. It is hemorrhaging its educated members, me included. It is so scandal-ridden it is hard to see it as a force for good in the world. Even the nuns are being bullied for their work among the poor, the sick, and the imprisoned, when they ought to be out there preventing birth control and abortions. Decisions on moral issues are made by men, often without even consulting any women. There are many, many angry Catholics who feel stuck, believing that to leave the Church is to be damned.Pope Francis has his work cut out for him if he defines us all being one as us all becoming Roman Catholics. Let’s hope and pray he and the RC bureaucracy are listening to the Holy Spirit. And let us Episcopalians pray for the wisdom and humility for ourselves and the whole Anglican Communion to be open to what God’s Holy Spirit is telling us.

Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Washington, DC [Lambeth Palace] In their first meeting, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Pope Francis both spoke June 14 of the bonds of “friendship” and “love” between the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion.The two leaders agreed that the fruits of this dialogue and relationship have the potential to empower Christians around the world to demonstrate the love of Christ.The archbishop and the pope agreed on the need to build an economic system which promotes “the common good” to help those suffering in poverty.Welby said that Christians must reflect “the self-giving love of Christ” by offering love and hospitality to the poor, and “love above all those tossed aside” by present crises around the world.The pope said those with the least in society “must not be abandoned to the laws of an economy that seems at times to treat people as mere consumers”.They also agreed on the need for Christians to act as peacemakers around the world, which they acknowledged could only be done if Christians “live and and work together in harmony,” the pope said.Welby, who has been deeply influenced by Catholic social teaching and intends to focus on healing divisions in church and society as part of his ministry, told the pope: “I pray that the nearness of our two inaugurations may serve the reconciliation of the world and the Church.”‘Brothers and sisters’The pope, who said their closeness of their inaugurations meant “we will always have a particular reason to support one another in prayer”, said today’s meeting was an opportunity to remember that the search for unity among Christians is not prompted by practical considerations, but by Christ, “who made us his brothers and sisters, children of the One Father.”The archbishop, who was accompanied by his wife, Caroline, visited the tomb of St. Peter beneath the Basilica before praying at the tomb of Pope John Paul II. He was also joined by Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols, as well as Archbishop David Moxon, Welby’s representative to the Holy See.After meeting Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, the archbishop met the pope at the Apostolic Palace. The pair held a private conversation, before giving public addresses and attending a service of midday prayer together.In his address to the pope, the archbishop praised the work of popes and archbishops of Canterbury over the past 50 years to bring the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion closer together.Honoring the custom for archbishops of Canterbury visiting the Vatican, Welby wore the episcopal ring famously given to Archbishop Michael Ramsey by Pope Paul VI in 1966. The ring, which Ramsey wore until the day he died, is kept at Lambeth Palace and has become a symbol of fraternal love and efforts towards reconciliation between Roman Catholics and Anglicans.Recalling the words of Pope Paul VI to Ramsey, the archbishop told Pope Francis: “I am coming to a place where I can feel myself at home.”‘Love for the poor’Welby told the pope that they must promote “the fruits of our dialogue.”He continued: “And, with our fellow bishops, we must give expression to our unity in faith through prayer and evangelization. It is only as the world sees Christians growing visibly in unity that it will accept through us the divine message of peace and reconciliation.”Both the archbishop and the pope acknowledged that differences between Roman Catholics and Anglicans have caused pain in the past and would present challenges in the future.But the archbishop said that a firm foundation of friendship “will enable us to be hopeful in speaking to one another about those differences.” Meanwhile, the pope said recent decades had been marked by “a journey of rapprochement and fraternity.”Suggesting further areas of common focus between the two leaders, the archbishop spoke of the need for Christians to demonstrate “the self-giving love of Christ” in hospitality and love for the poor.“We must love those who seek to oppose us, and love above all those tossed aside — even whole nations — by the present crises around the world. Also, even as we speak, our brothers and sisters in Christ suffer terribly from violence, oppression and war, from bad government and unjust economic systems.  If we are not their advocates in the name of Christ, who will be?”‘Lowly but chosen’Welby presented Pope Francis with the motto of the pope – ‘Miserando atque eligendo’ – in gold letters on vellum.The motto, meaning lowly but chosen (literally in Latin, ‘by having mercy, by choosing him’) is a quote from an English Church Father, Bede, whose ‘Ecclesiastical History’ charts the union of the different strands of British Christianity relating in and through Rome to the Universal Church.The full texts of both addresses can be found below:The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Address to His Holiness Pope Francis on the occasion of the Archbishop’s first fraternal visit to Rome Apostolic Palace, Vatican City, 14 June 2013Your Holiness,Dear Friends:I am full of love and gratitude to be here.  In the last few days we have been remembering the death of Blessed Pope John XXIII in the midst of the Second Vatican Council.  At the Requiem said at Lambeth Palace fifty years ago this weekend by Archbishop Michael Ramsey, my much-loved predecessor said of him:  ‘Pope John has shown us again the power ofbeing, by being a man who touches human hearts with charity.  So there has come to many a new longing for the unity of all Christians, and a new knowledge that however long the road may be, charity already makes all the difference to it.’Having for many years found inspiration in the great corpus of Catholic social teaching, and worked on its implications with Catholic groups;  having spent retreats in new orders of the Church in France, and being accompanied by the Prior of another new order;  I do indeed feel that I am (in the words of Pope Paul VI to Archbishop Michael) coming to a place where I can feel myself at home.Your Holiness, we are called by the Holy Spirit of God, through our fraternal love, to continue the work that has been the precious gift to popes and archbishops of Canterbury for these past fifty years, and of which this famous ring is the enduring token.  I pray that the nearness of our two inaugurations may serve the reconciliation of the world and the Church.As you have stressed, we must promote the fruits of our dialogue;  and, with our fellow bishops, we must give expression to our unity in faith through prayer and evangelisation.  It is only as the world sees Christians growing visibly in unity that it will accept through us the divine message of peace and reconciliation.However, the journey is testing and we cannot be unaware that differences exist about how we bring the Christian faith to bear on the challenges thrown up by modern society.  But our ‘goal is great enough to justify the effort of the journey’ (Benedict XVI, Spe salvi 1), and we can trust in the prayer of Christ, ‘ut omnes unum sint’ (Jn 17.21).  A firm foundation of friendship will enable us to be hopeful in speaking to one another about those differences, to bear one another’s burdens, and to be open to sharing the discernment of a way forward that is faithful to the mind of Christ pressed upon us as disciples.That way forward must reflect the self-giving love of Christ, our bearing of his Cross, and our dying to ourselves so as to live with Christ, which will show itself in hospitality and love for the poor.  We must love those who seek to oppose us, and love above all those tossed aside—even whole nations—by the present crises around the world.  Also, even as we speak, our brothers and sisters in Christ suffer terribly from violence, oppression and war, from bad government and unjust economic systems.  If we are not their advocates in the name of Christ, who will be?Your Holiness, dear brother, I assure you of the love, respect and prayer of the bishops, clergy and people of the Anglican Communion.

When you meet someone on earth you are seeking to meet your Lord. More you dedicate, more you devote your time, even all your life more that hope becomes real. Some devotees take vows of siience just to hear God speak His Voice to them, some copy the Scriptures over and over again just to hope God will reveal a Personal Message to them and some of the religious love the poorest of the poor becuase thier Lord told them He was Them. Stop thinking of your church polemics and theocracy and understand the opportunity to prepare for your Lord’s Revelation. Is the worshipper prepared to meet Jesus, is the Church poised to greet Jesus or are people in awe of their human reflections ? Remember God is Holy and sees our hearts so to dwell within them for us to enjoy life on earth and Heaven. Enjoy that self realization. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 His Holiness Pope Francis’ Address to the Archbishop of Canterbury on the occasion of the Archbishop’s first fraternal visit to Rome Apostolic Palace, Vatican City, 14 June 2013Your Grace, Dear Friends,Paul VI, when he addressed Archbishop Michael Ramsey during his historic visit in 1966: “Your steps have not brought you to a foreign dwelling … we are pleased to open the doors to you, and with the doors, our heart, pleased and honoured as we are … to welcome you ‘not as a guest or a stranger, but as a fellow citizen of the Saints and the Family of God’” (cf. Eph 2:19-20).I know that during Your Grace’s installation in Canterbury Cathedral you remembered in prayer the new Bishop of Rome. I am deeply grateful to you – and since we began our respective ministries within days of each other, I think we will always have a particular reason to support one another in prayer.The history of relations between the Church of England and the Catholic Church is long and complex, and not without pain. Recent decades, however, have been marked by a journey of rapprochement and fraternity, and for this we give heartfelt thanks to God. This journey has been brought about both via theological dialogue, through the work of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission, and via the growth of cordial relations at every level through shared daily lives in a spirit of profound mutual respect and sincere cooperation. In this regard, I am very pleased to welcome alongside you Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster. These firm bonds of friendship have enabled us to remain on course even when difficulties have arisen in our theological dialogue that were greater than we could have foreseen at the start of our journey.I am grateful, too, for the sincere efforts the Church of England has made to understand the reasons that led my Predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, to provide a canonical structure able to respond to the wishes of those groups of Anglicans who have asked to be received collectively into the Catholic Church: I am sure this will enable the spiritual, liturgical and pastoral traditions that form the Anglican patrimony to be better known and appreciated in the Catholic world.Today’s meeting is an opportunity to remind ourselves that the search for unity among Christians is prompted not by practical considerations, but by the will of the Lord Jesus Christ himself, who made us his brothers and sisters, children of the One Father. Hence the prayer that we make today is of fundamental importance.This prayer gives a fresh impulse to our daily efforts to grow towards unity, which are concretely expressed in our cooperation in various areas of daily life. Particularly important among these is our witness to the reference to God and the promotion of Christian values in a world that seems at times to call into question some of the foundations of society, such as respect for the sacredness of human life or the importance of the institution of the family built on marriage, a value that you yourself have had occasion to recall recently.Then there is the effort to achieve greater social justice, to build an economic system that is at the service of man and promotes the common good. Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor, so that they are not abandoned to the laws of an economy that seems at times to treat people as mere consumers.I know that Your Grace is especially sensitive to all these questions, in which we share many ideas, and I am also aware of your commitment to foster reconciliation and resolution of conflicts between nations. In this regard, together with Archbishop Nichols, you have urged the authorities to find a peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict such as would guarantee the security of the entire population, including the minorities, not least among whom are the ancient local Christian communities. As you yourself have observed, we Christians bring peace and grace as a treasure to be offered to the world, but these gifts can bear fruit only when Christians live and work together in harmony. This makes it easier to contribute to building relations of respect and peaceful coexistence with those who belong to other religious traditions, and with non-believers.The unity we so earnestly long for is a gift that comes from above and it is rooted in our communion of love with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. As Christ himself promised, “where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Mt 18:20). Let us travel the path towards unity, fraternally united in charity and with Jesus Christ as our constant point of reference. In our worship of Jesus Christ we will find the foundation and raison d’être of our journey. May the merciful Father hear and grant the prayers that we make to him together. Let us place all our hope in him who “is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think” (Eph 3:20).

You see, back in the late 1950s, my late father was ordained to both the Diaconate and Priesthood by the late Bishop Ronald Owen Hall in St. John’s Cathedral on Hong Kong Island. Between 1966-71, he served as an Assistant Chaplain with the Missions to Seamen (now Missions to Seafarers) in the Diocese of Sydney, Australia. Back in those more innocent times, the seafarers were allowed off their ships while it was in port, and could visit the Mission’s center, watch movies on the big screen (the VCR was not born for another decade), attend dances, Chapel Services, and counsel with the clergy.In the fullness of time, long before the birth of the internet, my father had an organized system whereby he could hand out material in the form of a primitive version of a correspondence course to prepare seafarers who desired baptism. On their return voyage, these catechumen generally had many questions for discussions about our Christian faith. Once baptized, seafarers were presented with material to prepare them for Confirmation. The parish church closest to the seafarer’s home were always kept informed about these new convert. The Bible Society and Scripture Union, were two supportive organizations who made presentations to those Baptized and Confirmed.By chance, in the Spring Semester of 1993, I taught at Christ School in Arden, in the depth of your home Diocese of Western North Carolina. Since this was my first experience of living with Americans, the charm of the enormous Christ School campus (especially when we were snowed in from civilization), Southern Hospitality, Sweet Tea, Chili, and Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher NC, will always hold a special place in my heart.May God continue to bless you in your wonderful ministry.

God bless you both. See you soon! Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Jobs & Calls [Episcopal News Service] Will Bryant from the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina has decided to spend a year as a Young Adult Service Corps volunteer working with the Mission to Seafarers in Hong Kong.Every day Will visits the seafarers either in port or out at the anchorage, bringing them the latest news in their own language, phone cards so they can call home, and a welcome respite from their sometimes dangerous and often lonely lifestyle.Many of the seafarers spend 8-10 months each year away from home to provide for their families. Hong Kong is just one of 260 ports throughout the world where Mission to Seafarers has a presence. Established in 1856, it is one of the oldest Anglican mission agencies, bringing much-needed support to those who work at sea. — Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.
