Six things we learnt about rugby in May 2021

first_imgBut things have changed now. Tackle technique isn’t something that we just talk about; it now loses games. To the point where a red card in a European Champions Cup final means that you have no chance.As we saw with La Rochelle and Toulouse, Levani Botia’s tackle ended the game for La Rochelle and in a way that could and should have been prevented. It wasn’t an accidental sliding up of the contact point or a case of the player dipping – it was 1990s in its approach. TAGS: Highlight Lions players huddle during the 2017 tour of New Zealand (Getty Images) Lions’ selection policy is rightly short termEveryone picked a British & Irish Lions 2021 squad. But still no one got it right.It may be because we’ve all become so used to Test rugby’s forward-looking gaze that we’re not used to seeing a squad that is selected to do a certain job in a short period of time. With our Test teams, we’re all now accustomed to the four-year cycle, where success is based on the Rugby World Cup. It means that the age profile of a squad is key and the development of younger players is vital.But that is not the case with the Lions. It’s about who is ready to rock and roll now, for a few months, and then it’s over. That’s where Warren Gatland caught us out. Players like Jack Conan – a military-grade ball-carrier ready to carry and tackle his guts out for an eight-week period – are a selection for now.There is also no legacy or player relationship to worry about. There are no historical systems to have learnt or combinations to have gelled. Most of all there is no pecking order. With the Lions, the pecking doesn’t begin until they pull on that first training bib.Jack Conan makes a break for Leinster against Ulster (Sportsfile/Getty Images)The short-term selection focus can be said for the inclusion of many in the squad. Gatland hasn’t needed to pick a team who can cope with multiple playing styles, as you would need to in a tournament like the World Cup or Six Nations; he is picking a team to beat a specific opposition, over a specific period.If we have learnt one thing, it is never to second guess Gatland. Usually, he is right.Scrum is where the Lions series will be wonIf you’ve been watching the South African teams in the Rainbow Cup, you’ll be aware that any talk of who is playing in the back-line for the Lions is largely pointless. And worrying about the back-row selection is also probably a waste of Twitter characters. Just focus on the tight five. In all likelihood, just the front three. The scrum is where it will be won.South African rugby has some amazing young backs in Aphelele Fassi and the like, rock-solid senior players in Damian de Allende and a range of back-row forwards who can mine the rocks, then sculpt them. But it is all generated from dominant set-piece and, in particular, the scrum.LIONS 2021 LATEST NEWSWhilst we’re all debating which ball-handling/sidestepping loosehead will get the nod for the Lions, don’t be surprised at all if Andrew Porter starts the first Test with Tadhg Furlong. Gaining parity at the scrum in the first Test will be the first box waiting to be ticked on Gatland’s spreadsheet. If the Lions can’t handle the Boks at the scrum, handling in the backs will be moot.The Lions had a tough time in the scrum against South Africa in 2009 (Getty Images)Australia have gone to big schoolRemember when you were at primary school and you felt safe with your small gang of friends, you knew the ropes and everything seemed cool. Then you went to big school, saw some of the bigger kids, from other schools, and immediately craved the warm embrace of your mother. Well, that has happened to the Australian teams in Super Rugby Trans-Tasman.After a reasonably competitive opening weekend of games, where there were admittedly five loses for the Australian teams, things have gotten worse. The idiot author of this column initially said the gap wasn’t that big; now, after a few weeks of contemplation, the gap looks big enough to store Boris Johnson’s takeaway containers. Until the Reds beat the Chiefs, the Australian teams hadn’t won a game.However, the Australian teams’ suffering shouldn’t bring any pleasure from supporters around the world. Do you really think your country’s four top teams would fare much better playing against the best rugby in the world?In many ways New Zealand rugby has evolved even faster during Covid than at any time before. For 12 months they had done nothing but play each other and inadvertently created rugby’s Galapagos Islands, where evolution has been specific and rapid.Australian rugby has a stack of fantastic young players coming through, and the next five years of development looks promising in many positions. But for the time being, the Kiwis are evolving faster than ever.Tackle technique is no longer an academic subjectUp until this season tackle technique was a largely academic subject. You were taught it when you were young, then you’d use it as and when you needed to as an adult.Even the discussion in elite rugby has tended to be largely academic over the past decade. Good tackle technique has been lauded, but if you didn’t have it, you could still get by with having your head on the wrong side, or tackling too high on occasions, but without it really affecting your career – Owen Farrell being an example of the latter. From the Lions selection policy to tough lessons for Australian teams, Paul Williams reflects on rugby’s goings-oncenter_img Can’t get to the shops?

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Players who now have problems with their tackling technique are no longer something to be discussed quietly after the game, it is something that needs to be addressed during selection. If you’ve got players who can’t or won’t get low enough, your chances of winning are low. The game has changed and the adaptation needs speeding up.Scott Williams released by the OspreysMay saw Scott Williams released by the Ospreys. And whilst it is entirely understandable given his injury record, particularly during Covid and the associated budget implications, it makes you realise how fragile an existence being a pro rugby player is.When fit, Williams was one of the best players in Wales and the rightful successor to Jamie Roberts in midfield. But a dreadful run of injuries has reduced the once headliner to a footnote on a player release statement.Scott Williams has been released by the Ospreys (Getty Images)It’s a cruel, but very realistic insight into professional sport and all that it brings. Williams has already had an amazing career, as his 58 caps for Wales confirm, but let’s hope that it doesn’t end there. He’s only 30 and, injuries allowing, would still be a fantastic addition to any squad.Coaching is a combination that is often overlookedWhen we discuss combinations in rugby, we tend to focus on the centres, the back row or the nine-ten axis. Rarely do we think of coaching set-ups a combination in the same way we do players. But when you see the turnaround at Harlequins it makes you realise that the coaching combo may be the most important in the game.In a few months Harlequins have gone from an eye-coverer to an eye-opener. They’ve made the final four in the Gallagher Premiership and are playing some of the most expansive rugby in the league. Marcus Smith is the top point-scorer in the league and Joe Marchant and Alex Dombrandt are second and third in the league for clean breaks.Perhaps the most interesting stat is that Danny Care, Dombrandt and Smith are second, third and fourth respectively in the league for try-scoring. Having your eight, nine and ten in the top try-scoring charts means you’re playing attacking rugby at a level that few others are.But what really matters is that despite many of their players dominating the league, they are largely the same players who have been there for the past few seasons. The one thing that has changed is the coaching structure.It’s great to see Quins at the business end, once again.last_img read more

Corona Episcopalian inspires support for wheelchair ministry

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Bishop J. Jon Bruno greets Erin Tharp of St. John’s Church, Corona, at the Dec. 2-3 convention of the Diocese of Los Angeles. Photo/Janet Kawamoto[Episcopal News, Los Angeles] Erin Tharp of Corona preached a powerfully inspiring sermon Nov. 20 at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church without uttering a single word.The 28-year-old former straight-A student, who has been in a wheelchair and unable to speak for nearly half her young life, inspired the congregation to meet an “Advent Challenge.” They promptly and overwhelmingly responded by raising funds to purchase one hundred wheelchairs for the disabled poor in developing countries, reaching their goal just two weeks into the Advent season.Tharp had already donated about $630, enough to purchase ten of the durable, inexpensive wheelchairs through the Free Wheelchair Mission, a ministry Bishop Jon Bruno has encouraged all congregations throughout the diocese to embrace.She was just a teenager, about 14, when a bout with viral encephalitis taught Tharp the difference wheelchairs can make in the lives of the disabled. Positioned near the front of the church, she listened Nov. 20 along with about 180 others at two services as the Rev. Karen Chavez read the sermon Tharp wrote, typing with one finger, a single keystroke at a time, on an I-Pad that has become her voice.“As you know, I pretty much need help with everything I do, whether it’s turning the pages in the prayer book or visiting after church, where I have an I-Pad as my voice,” she wrote in the sermon. “The assistance I need is from the time I wake up to when my head hits the pillow again at night. The most obvious form of help I receive is with my wheelchair.”The sermon recalled Tharp’s first wheelchair. “Seeing the purple manual wheelchair for the first time devastated me. I knew then I would probably never walk again. Because of the neurologic damage I suffered, I couldn’t communicate at all in those days, so all I could do was scream to express my anger and disappointment,” she wrote.As part of the sermon, the congregation viewed a DVD detailing the need for inexpensive, durable wheelchairs throughout the world. They also watched a ‘before and after’ video slideshow of Tharp as her sermon described reconciling the dreams she’d had for the “wheelchair-less Erin” ­— such as being an astronaut — with her recovery and rehabilitation after the encephalitis.But not even the deadly disease could diminish the effervescent Tharp’s enthusiasm or sense of purpose and desire to reach out to those in need. Though she nearly died and was hospitalized for about a year, she can’t imagine her life now without a wheelchair and is reaching out to help others who need them.“I’m not going to sugarcoat it,” she wrote in the sermon. “What’s hardest for me is that I haven’t always been in a wheelchair. I used to be able to walk, run, skip, you name it.” Now, the wheelchair is “a gift and with it I’m sitting in God’s hands,” she wrote.“It has allowed me to take family vacations, ‘walk’ with my [Centennial High School] class at graduation and pick out my canine daughter, Maggie. I can also do the little things with the family. I never thought just eating dinner, as a family, would be so special.”Which led to “thinking about people less fortunate than me. They deserve the same feeling of freedom I enjoy. Where they were born or their economic situation shouldn’t hinder that.”Which led to her enthusiastically supporting the Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM), a nonprofit, nonsectarian ministry that has already supplied more than 600,000 wheelchairs worldwide. The agency aims to send 2,750 more from the Southland to people with disabilities in developing countries by next June.This Christmas, Episcopalians in the Diocese of Los Angeles are encouraged to consider buying a wheelchair in honor of a loved one. Each wheelchair costs about $63.94 and is manufactured from existing components, like plastic lawn chairs and bicycle tires, according to Mike Kenyon, pastor of church development for FWM.“We work with local partners and once the wheelchairs arrive at the country of choice, the partner receives, assembles and distributes them on our behalf,” he said during a recent telephone interview from his Irvine office.FWM was founded in 2001 after Don Schoendorfer, a mechanical engineer and inventor who was vacationing in Morocco, witnessed a disabled woman narrowly evading traffic as she struggled to drag herself across a dirt road. He developed the wheelchair, especially designed for use in rugged terrain, Kenyon said.He estimated that there are 100 million disabled in the world; most will never have access to wheelchairs without the kind of assistance FWM offers.“Bishop Bruno has a real passion for this ministry,” Kenyon said. “The idea is that, if we all came together, we could send five containers to a designated country in the summer of 2012.”FWM has also developed a curriculum of prayer and study for congregational use at Christmas, Lent and Easter and other times to help engage the ministry. Gift donation cards are available through FWM’s website, at http://bit.ly/drr43g. A DVD is also available.The wheelchairs have been shipped to 77 countries across the globe, from Afghanistan to Belize, China to Cuba, from Ghana to Kazakhstan, from Jamaica to Sri Lanka.A few years ago, congregations located in diocesan Deaneries 9 and 10 collaborated and raised more than $28,000 to help send a crate of 550 wheelchairs to Iraq, according to the Very Rev. Canon Peter Haynes, rector of St. Michael and All Angels Church in Corona del Mar and Deanery 10 dean.“The wheelchairs were sent to Iraq and distributed there by our military, since there was already a delivery system in place there,” he said. “It seemed to be a great win-win, because people in Iraq needed the chairs and it gave our military a gift to give them to help the relationship with the people of Iraq.”Haynes said his congregation has been involved in fundraising for FWM for several years and keeps one of the wheelchairs on hand in the sanctuary.“That way, people will ask, what’s that and we can tell them. We talk about it all the time here,” Haynes said during a recent telephone interview from his office.Tharp may continue to tell her story, according to the Rev. John Saville, St. John’s rector since 1985.“The neat thing is, the organization (FWM) has asked Erin, if she’s able and has the time, and wants to help them, to continue to spread the word about the organization,” he said during a recent telephone interview.He added that hearing Tharp’s story and her sermon made for “one of the most, if not the most, powerful services I’ve witnessed since I’ve been here” at St. John’s.It also inspired others as far away as England to contribute, he added. “A parishioner’s family member heard the story and donated a chair.” And an anonymous donor from Temecula, inspired by a local newspaper report about Tharp’s sermon, donated 15 wheelchairs.St. John’s initial goal was to raise money for 100 chairs, about $6,000. At last count they’d raised enough to purchase 122, according to the Rev. Karen Chavez, a vocational deacon at St. John’s who organizes the yearly Advent Challenge.Serving as Tharp’s “voice,” Chavez said, “was a great personal gift.“If you can just imagine being a young woman who’s mute and basically paralyzed and not having any means of doing anything, and yet having this calling that you have to help others. How helpless that must feel and yet she made it happen. To be part of that was overwhelming,” she said.As for Tharp, she is more focused on additional outreach than her own health challenges.“It’s Free Wheelchair Mission’s desire to ‘provide the transforming gift of mobility to the physically disabled in poor and developing countries, as demonstrated by Jesus Christ,’ allowing them to sit in God’s hands as well,” she said in her sermon.“Advent is the perfect time to shed light on the extreme giving Free Wheelchair Mission does for God’s forgotten children, liberating them from the yoke of bondage,” she wrote, echoing the Galatians 5:1 reading for the first Sunday in Advent.“In many places around the world, the disabled truly are the least of his brothers … Let’s take time out of the busy-ness of this Christmas season to remember those who are often forgotten, if not ignored. At the risk of sounding corny, I think that’s the perfect birthday gift for Jesus.” Submit an Event Listing Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Albany, NY December 15, 2011 at 2:37 pm Beautiful story…………God bless St Johns Episcopal Church and those involved……..andGod bless Erin……..a great inspiration……………..PeaceMichael NealAsst.

Mary-Marguerite Kohn, 62. She died May 5 at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where she had been taken after the shooting and placed on life support.Brenda Brewington, 59, the parish’s administrative assistant, had been pronounced dead at the scene in the parish office. Her life was remembered May 10 St. John’s Episcopal Church, which is also in Ellicott City. Her family asked that the service be private.Some of the diocese’s congregations have offered to hold the funeral for the presumed assailant, identified by the Howard County Police Department as Douglas Franklin Jones, 56, according Sharon Tillman, diocesan director of communications.Jones’ family had “neither accepted nor declined” the offer as of late May 9, Tillman told the Baltimore Sun newspaper..Sutton said outside of Kohn’s service that people had gathered “to remember all who are on the front lines of ministry. These are the administrators, the secretaries, those priests who are alone.”“We’re also gathered with concern for our society, a society that’s still has not figured out a way to keep deadly arms out of distressed persons who can do so harm, and a society that will have people on the streets whom society at large has not cared for, and they end up at the doorsteps of our churches and our churches welcome them, our churches receive them and help them in the name of Christ,” he said.Jones was found dead in woods adjacent to the church shortly after the shooting. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a gun was found nearby, police said in a May 4 statement. Police located a campsite in the woods with personal belongings and believe Jones was living there.Investigators have learned that Jones had recently been involved in a dispute with church members, they said in the statement. He visited the church regularly to access their food bank, but recently had become belligerent and argumentative. Police believe Jones’ anger with the church may have been the motive for the shooting, but don’t believe any specific person or people were targeted. No one else was in the building at the time of the shooting.While some earlier news reports said that Jones had been turned away from the parish’s food pantry because he came more often than policy allowed, the Rev. Kirk Kubicek, St. Peter’s co-rector, said recently that Brewington had been taking Jones to the food pantry at the time of the shooting.The Rev. Carol Pinkham Oak, rector of near-by St. John’s where Brewington’s funeral is being held, told the Sun that “from St. John’s point of view, we see this as a tragedy, and we also see this as a homeless man who was suffering with mental illness, so with our Christian understanding, we have offered him forgiveness.”“There is still grief and sadness and anger, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be forgiveness,” Oak said.The Baltimore-based diocese held its 228th convention May 4-5 and began with prayer for the victims. The convention passed a condolence resolution that also expressed concern for the security of church workers and all victims of gun-related crimes. It also pledged to address the needs of homeless persons and those who are mentally ill.

El clero necesitará la autorización de su Obispo según los términos de la resolución.La moción en la Cámara de Diputados obtuvo la aprobación del 78 por ciento del clero, con el voto favorable de 85 delegados del clero, 22 votos desfavorables y cuatro votos con posiciones divididas; y la aprobación del 76 por ciento de los votos de laicos, 86 votos favorables de los delegados laicos, 19 votos desfavorables y 5 votos con posiciones divididas. Los obispos habían aprobado la resolución el 9 de julio en una votación por nombre con el resultado de 111 votos a favor, 41 en contra y tres abstenciones.La resolución además hiso un llamado a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música “para que lleve a cabo un proceso de revisión en el próximo trienio, aclarando que este es un tema de “labor inconclusa”, dijo, la Rda. Ruth Meyers, diputada de la diócesis de Chicago al presentar la legislación a los diputados. Ella preside el subcomité sobre bendiciones del Comité del Libro de oración, Liturgia y Música Eclesiástica de la Convención, y la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música.La resolución solicitó a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música para que incluya “perspectivas teológicas diversas en el avance de desarrollo de recursos teológicos” y para que invite a que se obtengan las reacciones de toda la iglesia así como también de la Comunión Anglicana y de los socios de las Iglesias ecuménicas.A resolución indica que, conforme a los cánones vigentes, un clérigo puede rehusar presidir una liturgia de bendición y dice que nadie “debe ser coaccionado ni castigado en modo alguno, ni sufrir ninguna incapacidad canónica” por objetar o por apoyar la decisión de la 77a. Convención General sobre las bendiciones.La Liturgia “es un servicio para bendecir las parejas del mismo sexo quienes están en una relación monógama, leal, comprometida para toda la vida”, dijo Meyers en una sesión informativa de la prensa después que los diputados concluyeran la sesión. “Con ese servicio viene un paquete completo de recursos”.Los recursos incluyen un ensayo teológico, guía sobre la ley canóniga, temas para preparar a las parejas para el servicio de bendición y temas de enseñanza invitándolos a todos a la iglesia “para conversar y reflexionar sobre teología, o si ellos esperan o no que sus congregaciones en algún momento estén preparados para realizar esos servicios”, dijo ella.Actualmente el paquete puede encontrarse comenzando en la página 184 del Libro Azul. (La Convención realizó unas cuantas revisiones a la versión del rito incluido en el informe.)Antes de que la Cámara debatiera la resolución, el Muy Reverendo Rev. David Thurlow, miembro del comité del Libro de Oración, Liturgia y Música y diputado de la diócesis de Carolina del Sur, presentó un informe de minoría a los diputados.“En 2,000 años, la Iglesia ha tenido una enseñanza clara sobre el matrimonio,” él dijo. Asimismo, indicando la preocupación del comité sobre las relaciones ecuménicas en otras áreas, como mantener el uso del Leccionario Común Revisado, Thurlow dijo “nosotros no hemos seguido el consejo de la voz universal de la iglesia universal o de la Comunión Anglicana”.“Esta resolución marca una desviación clara y significativa — teológica, doctrinal y en el culto — de la doctrina, disciplina y culto a Cristo tal como esta Iglesia la recibió,” dijo él. Esta resolución presenta una “nueva teología de la sexualidad humana.”Durante el debate, la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados Bonnie Anderson hiso un llamada de forma alterna a los partidarios y a los oponentes a esta resolución.“Las señales fuera de nuestra Iglesia dicen que todos somos bienvenidos” dijo el diputado de la diócesis de Michigan Pete Ross, quien instó a la aprobación de la resolución. “¿Necesitamos un asterisco?”El Rdo. Charles Holt, del Centro de la Florida, comentó acerca de la sesión realizada temprano sobre el voto unánime de la cámara sobre una resolución de estructura mayor. “Realmente eso me conmovió mucho de una manera poderosa. Fue la primera vez que me sentí unido a este grupo. Luego unos minutos después, recibimos… algo que son divide profundamente en valores muy, muy fundamentales”.“Aprobar esta resolución,” dijo el Venerable. David Collum, diputado de la diócesis de Albany, “es simplemente ejercer un poder mayoritario contra aquellos con un punto de vista minoritario, que dicen ‘No me importa’”.El Rdo. Jack Zamboni, de Nueva Jersey, recuerda haber tenido el rol de “novio” en una prueba de liturgia en el sínodo provincial 2. “Mi reacción después de participar en esa liturgia fue que yo anhele que [mi esposa] y yo hubiésemos tenido esa liturgia cuando nos casamos hace seis años. Es una pieza de trabajo de liturgia maravillosa”.Él describió como un pareja de lesbianas en su parroquia, que estaban juntas por 30 años, lloraron cuando él les dijo que la convención estaba considerando autorizar el rito que bendeciría su relación.“Ellas nunca pensaron que esto pasaría en sus vidas”.Algunos de los diputados jóvenes de la Cámara contaron relatos [o dieron testimonios] personales al tiempo que instaban la aprobación de la resolución.La diputada de Newark, Caroline Christie, de 18 años, recordó que cuando era niña se preguntaba por qué sus dos tías no podían casarse. “No había diferencia en su relación, excepto que las dos eran mujeres. Al crecer, empecé a darme cuenta que esto era un tema de discriminación. … Las parejas del mismo sexo deben tener la oportunidad de ser bendecidas por la Iglesia”.El diputado de Chicago, Ian Hallas, de 22 años, de la misma manera hablo sobre su familia: su hermana y de su unión civil.“El amor que ella comparte con su pareja es incondicional y es la relación ideal que todos debemos luchar por tener”, él dijo.“Con frecuencia las personas que asisten a la iglesia y los que no asisten a la iglesia me preguntan por qué soy parte de esta iglesia,” él dijo. “La razón por la que regreso es mi hermana. Busco reafirmar que ella no solo tenga el mismo rito de bendición que yo, pero que además ella tenga los mismos privilegios”.Antes de la votación, la cámara tuvo una discusión larga y compleja y prosiguió un pedido para dividir la resolución. Finalmente, la resolución no fue dividida, los diputados votaron aprobar toda la resolución. Los diputados también votaron rechazando un pedido para referir la resolución al Comité Permanente de Liturgia y Música.– Sharon Sheridan es miembro del equipo de Servicio de Prensa Episcopal en la Convención General Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit a Press Release Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ center_img Rector Collierville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

How much did that cost either side of the dispute??Will there be big enough congregations to be able to use those buildings? If not, can the congregations being ousted from them buy them from the diocese, or does PB’s forbidding that still hold? What does it cost dioceses to continue paying for the parish buildings they can’t fill with congregations? Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK [The Episcopal News, Los Angeles] Final Judgments in favor of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the Episcopal Church in cases regarding Long Beach and North Hollywood property disputes have been entered by the Orange County Superior Court.“The judgments conclude the trial court portion of the cases and declare that the diocese holds the properties in trust for the current and future mission of the Episcopal Church,” said diocesan attorney John R. Shiner.“It is ordered, adjudged and decreed that final judgment is entered in favor of plaintiffs [including] the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Los Angeles… and Plaintiff-In-Intervention The Episcopal Church and against defendants,” each judgment reads. The judgment for St. David’s, North Hollywood is here and the judgment for All Saints’, Long Beach is here.“We will move forward with an orderly transition,” said the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, who was present in the courtroom Aug. 24 for the recent proceedings. “Being people of compassion and understanding, we have been in touch with the attorneys for both congregations, and we will make every effort to respect the dignity of all involved.”The court will take up another case, involving the congregation of St. James’, Newport Beach, on Oct. 24.The litigation began eight years ago when a majority of members of All Saints’ Church in Long Beach, St. David’s Church in North Hollywood, and St. James’ Church in Newport Beach voted to disaffiliate from the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Los Angeles. A court returned a fourth property — St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church in La Crescenta — to the diocese in 2009.

Featured Events Rector Hopkinsville, KY October 13, 2012 at 2:30 pm In response to both Sally Rowan and Rupert Baird and their concern about the way in which the court cases in the Diocese of Los Angeles have been handled. It is their lack of understanding about one of the basic tenants of the EPISCOPAL Church. We, as in each individual parish, through out the United States, are not subject to our own governing body / parish vestry – but rather we are each a part of the larger church which by the very term Episcopal reminds us that the Bishop, Standing Committee and Diocesan Council are where the buck stops. It is really quite simple but many people do not understand this.

Not in the Episcopal Church. The diocese assumes responsibility for the building. This has been the case in the Episcopal Church for over 200 years, and has been written into diocesan canons for over a century. All of us in a parish are actually trustees – for the Episcopal Church – and for the generations who came before you and will come after. A parish constantly changes in membership. When my grandparents moved from Illinois to Ohio they left behind a building that they had literally built — my grandfather made the altar and found the pews. My grandmother painted the interior and found the altar ware. They didn’t get to claim the altar and take it with them. It belonged to the CHURCH (not the parish). When I moved from Minnesota where I pledged to the local Episcopal Church and helped restore its 1858 building, I left behind a legacy that was picked up by those who came into the congregation after I left. Similarly, I became the beneficiary of the work done by those who built the parish I then joined in San Diego County. The Church is larger and more enduring than any congregation.

Each diocese of the Church can make its own laws and establish its own policies, so long as they acceed to the national ones. And, each congregation must acceed to the national and diocesan rules as well.This isn’t anything new or novel. We’ve been doing this since our separation from the Church of England just after the American Revolution. It’s a democratic system, with both clergy and laity participating in each level of church government.The ownership of church property is governed by the Dennis Canon, which requires each congregation to hold its property in trust for the diocese of which it is a part, and for each diocese to hold it’s property in trust for the national church. This is simply common sense. We Episcopalians choose to be in this together. This system enables us to support and assist each other when that becomes necessary. Our offerings go not only to the local congregation, but also to the diocese and national church for very purpose among others.People who don’t like this interdependent, three-tiered system – or who want congregational government – are free to go elsewhere. They are not free to take the church building, the altar silver and the checkbook with them when they go.

Plenty of room to disagree as long as you are ultimately willing to have the private theological experiments and revelations of revisionist leaders form the official faith and practice of the Church. You can be a theological minority (traditionaist) in this Church so long as you fill the pews, pay the bills, and nod approvingly. That property that you bought and paid for? It belongs to the current leadership’s wiles, with little real regard to the efforts and sacrifices that put the church on your real estate in the first place. So, just exactly what “trust” is that property held in and for? We seem to be a Church that values everything except the people needed to be a viable Church. Fast forward 50 years and many Episcopal churches will look back on the good old days when there still traditionalists to be counted on. We’ll be a Church of about 800,000 by that time with an average Sunday attendance of 200,000. Well done.

Bishop Knisely’s statement on marriage equality in Rhode Island

first_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island] A statement by Bishop Knisely, sent this morning to all active Episcopal clergy in Rhode Island, with a cover letter that reiterates:“As your Bishop I respect and honor your right to disagree with me. A key part of what it means to be a member of the Episcopal Church is that, as long as we all agree that we believe Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, we can hold varied and diverse opinions on most other issues and still meet each other in Christ at God’s altar.”Statement on Marriage Equality Legislation in Rhode IslandAs the Episcopal Bishop of Rhode Island, I support the bill before the General Assembly that would allow same-sex couples to marry in our state, not in spite of my Christian faith, but because of it.Episcopalians are not unanimous in our views, but in the Episcopal Church we find our unity in common prayer, not in common opinion. Even so, through many years of prayerful discussion, the majority of Christians in the Episcopal Church have come to believe that it is possible, and even common, for two people of the same-sex to live covenanted, faithful lives together in service to God, just as people in traditional marriages do. We have also learned that it is possible to protect the consciences of those who disagree within our church and still live together in community.Part of what informs my opinion is that before I became a priest and then a bishop, I was a scientist. So I know the importance of trusting evidence that we see with our own eyes. I have seen what St. Paul describes as the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) in the married lives of two men and of two women. I have seen relationships that are loving, mutual, and monogamous and that have lasted a lifetime. Jesus tells us that we must test each tree by looking at the goodness of its fruit (Luke 6:43-45). Across our congregations and communities, I can see the goodness of gay and lesbian couples and their families.The Episcopal Church has been blessed for many years by the life and ministry of gay and lesbian couples, both lay and ordained. I have seen how they contribute to the common good of a congregation and a community by creating stable, loving homes. As a new citizen of Rhode Island, I am eager to see our state legislature join many others across the country in passing legislation to ensure civil marriage equality. I believe it is time for the State of Rhode Island to extend marriage equality to all of its citizens. I urge the legislature to pass House Bill 5015.The Rt. Rev. W.

If they remove the log from their own eyes then they might see our situation differently as well. January 22, 2013 at 12:39 pm The debate within the Episcopal Church of same sex marriage has developed into a subject of such proportions that it will be the center of passionate debate for centuries to come. The question of right or wrong, sin or righteousness ultimately is not the Church’s to decide. The institution will be led / driven to a point of acceptance or rejection by the attitude and behavior of the people that endure and support it. As in the past groups will follow their collective sense of biblical teaching, traditional restrictions and personal. But reunion of this magnitude requires understanding that comes from observation over much time and interaction with differing groups. The unity of the Body of Christ is not defined by clever argument. It’s found in the service of the individual member–not in committee meetings or document written on parchment. Unity is service to the poor, hungry and disenfranchised as the directive of Christ tell us, and remember, he anticipated differing opinions when he commented on dramatic family discord. So, we will live with our opinions, survive occasional arguments and accusations of being “unbelievers” and attempt to live within our understanding of the meaning of Christ–not the aftermath of human creation of rules and regulations.

My dear sweet Mum, Truda Kelly Hansen, God rest her soul; raised us to love everybody because the Bible said so. So we did. As a little girl, I grew up naive and could not fathom one not liking me. Mum and Father raised us to be thoughtful and kind and accepting of disabilities, and people of all kinds end of story. Mum never made a distinction between race, gender or same sex partners. It just was not allowed in our house and all were welcome at the table. Of course a rude awakening when first going to school not until we were 7. I have an identical twin who is my best friend.

What is at stake is the support of the church for people who, as Bishop Knisely points out, are living lives that are, in fact, as good and as holy as are any other persons. In denying them access to the sacramental support of blessing and marriage, the church is denying them the additional grace to be a model for all married persons, and is empoverishing the Body of Christ. The scientific, scriptural and moral issues were long ago laid to rest in this matter. What remains is the social issue, which, like most social issues, will only be put to rest when there is a human face to encounter. The Rev.

ENS coverage of that meeting is available here. That proposed draft budget had been finalized in the days prior to the PB&F meeting by Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission, which has been working on the draft for more than a year. ENS coverage of the Executive Council meeting is available here.[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopalians across the church are invited to review and comment on the preliminary draft 2016-2018 triennium budget as it is prepared for approval by the Episcopal Church Executive Council in January 2015. From there, Executive Council will present the draft budget to Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget, and Finance (PB&F) in February, which will then prepare a final budget for approval at General Convention next summer.The preliminary draft budget is available here.“In creating this preliminary draft of the budget for 2016-18, the Executive Council Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission (FFM) has asked for and received input from leaders all over the church, in a variety of ministry areas,” explained the Rev. Susan Brown Snook of the Diocese of Arizona, a member of Executive Council, and a member of FFM.  “We have worked in collaboration with CCABs (commissions, committees, agencies, and boards), with Executive Council, with staff, and with members of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget, and Finance (PB&F).”Snook continued, “We are releasing this preliminary draft budget three months early because we would like to give people all over the church the opportunity to give us input and feedback. We will review their comments carefully and update our budget proposal in January, before releasing a final draft to PB&F in January.”On the web page, a narrative provides overview information about the document. The preliminary draft budget document and a place to provide comments are prominently displayed on the website.Executive Council member Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of Ohio, who chairs FFM, added, “This preliminary draft of the 2016-2018 triennium budget is the product of a two-year process of very intentional listening. Through structured conversations and surveys that began in the fall of 2012, FFM has endeavored to hear the hopes and concerns of the wider church from staff, CCABs, Executive Council colleagues, and others. In an effort to provide Program, Budget, and Finance Committee with the most beneficial base possible to begin their work at General Convention, we have had representatives of PB&F at each of our meetings throughout the current triennium.”He concluded, “The listening process continues now with the release of this preliminary draft, and we look forward to receiving many thoughtful reflections and responses to it in advance of our January meeting.”“We believe that this proposal is both realistic and visionary, and we have worked to make sure it incorporates the hopes and visions of others,” Snook added. “We hope that our work will provide a solid foundation for PB&F to build on as they create the final budget proposal for General Convention in 2015.”The Episcopal Church 78th General Convention will be held June 25 – July 3 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT (Episcopal Diocese of Utah).

As the Preacher’s College closed and left much unused space right next to the Presiding Bishop’s Chair in the Washington Cathedral it is worth consideration. The sale of the New York property should more that take care of renovations at the Preacher’s College buildings to their new use and the moving expense. I also think that the Presiding Bishop would benefit from not living “above the store” so to speak. One needs separation from their work for a few hours a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

20 years after Oklahoma bombing, bishop calls for prayer, remembrance

Here is the prayer that I wrote down 20 years ago, a couple of days after the bombing. Peace be with you, and with us all.————————-A Prayer after the Oklahoma City Bombing I am the building that was blown apart by a bomb in the “heartland” of America. My heart is blown open. The front of me falls away: I am the gaping floors, the broken glass, the dangling wires, the film of concrete dust that rises into the air. This is my body. I am the children who were killed: the little ones, the innocent, tender little people full of play and laughter. The babies. This is my body. I am the women and men who were killed, the mother, father, husband, wife, grandparent, neighbor, relative, friend, startled by death on an ordinary day. This is my body. I am those who mourn: the suddenly bereaved, the shocked, the bereft. I am the mother clutching a picture of her two children, the husband grieving his newly-wed wife. This is my body. I am the rescue workers, the medical personnel, those who hope against hope, and those who are faithful even when there is no hope, those who press on into the rubble, searching for the living, the wounded, the dead, searching for what is human, for what is loved. This is my body. I am the ones who planned and planted the bomb: the hardhearted, the fearful, the numb and angry ones who no longer care. (When Timothy McVeigh is shown pictures of the dead, particularly dead children, he has no reaction at all. Says one source, “[There was] nothing. Zero reaction from that son of a bitch. This guy is a stone.”) This is my body. I am the ones who fill the airwaves with venom and hate. “Take them out in the desert and blow them up.” “Shoot ’em.” “I hope they fry.” This is my body. I am the Holy Spirit, brooding over our bent world with bright wings. I am the wings of Jesus, tenderly outstretched above the city, sheltering everything and everyone beneath. This is my body. I cannot hold it all. I hand it to you, Jesus. Hold it with me. And suddenly I see that I am handing you the cross: here, you carry it. I cannot. And he has taken it up. He is carrying all of this, all of this. The dead, the wounded, and those who mourn; the killers and those who were killed; the frightened, the angry, the sorrowful –he is carrying all of this, all of us, every part of us, into the loving heart of God.— Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, April 1995(published in Women’s Uncommon Prayers, ed.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma] Oklahoma Bishop Edward J. Konieczny wrote to the diocese April 15 to call Episcopalians to “hope, love, and community” as they approach the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City building on April 19, 1995 (it was Wednesday of Holy Week) in an act of domestic terrorism that killed 168 people and injured 600 others.Konieczny’s letter follows.Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,This Sunday marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. This attack resulted in the deaths of 168 people and forever changed our capital city, our nation, and ourselves.As we approach this anniversary, let us not focus our attention on stories of anger, fear, or violence; but, rather, let us turn our attention to the stories of hope, love, and community that surround that day. Let us remember the immeasurably courageous rescuers who plunged into danger to save our neighbors. Let us remember the unified fortitude and kindness our capital city portrayed, reminding us all that we are truly stronger together than we are apart. Let us remember the love, support, and generosity that poured into our capital city from around the world. Most importantly, let us remember the victims who died, their families and loved ones, and those whose lives were changed forever that day. Let us pray for peace, healing, hope, and reconciliation for all on this anniversary and always. I invite congregations to remember this anniversary in their Prayers of the People this Sunday.Please join me in prayer:O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The appointment of Father Michael Sniffen comes as the conclusion of an historic process and marks the beginning of a new era for the Cathedral and the Diocese of Long Island,” said Provenzano.Sniffen’s first day to preside and preach at the cathedral is Sunday, Nov. 1.The liturgy for the institution of the new dean will be on Sunday, Jan. 31 at 4 p.m. Submit a Press Release Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Posted Sep 1, 2015 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit a Job Listing Director of Music Morristown, NJ Featured Jobs & Calls Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Bath, NC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
