Prayers for the Primates’ Meeting October 2017: Paul Kwong

first_img Anglican Communion, Associate Rector Columbus, GA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Anglican Communion News Service] The next Primates’ Meeting in October will be my fifth one as primate of Hong Kong. Each of the previous ones was unique. Some had designated themes and concerns. The last one was different. The concerns and challenges of respective provinces were submitted beforehand. The meetings are likened to a family gathering where the siblings are gathered together to discuss family business with having Archbishop of Canterbury, like the elder brother to serve as convener and chair.  Even though, at times, there were heated arguments and debates over some issues, what underpinned them was a deep love and concern for the Communion, our Anglican family.For me, the best part of these Meetings is the time spent together in worship, prayers, reflections and the washing of each other’s feet. It demonstrates that we are one in Christ, committed in walking together, being for each other and for the whole Communion.Thus, I look forward to attending the next meeting. As in 2016, primates have been asked to submit their provinces’ concerns and challenges to the meeting and we will prioritize and set the agenda together. And I look forward to praying and worshiping together with my fellow primates. In particular, I am excited to meet the new ones. I am equally excited to renew and strengthen my friendship with the existing ones too. There is a saying in the West, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver, the other is gold.”I look forward to meeting both the “silver” and the “gold” Primates in October.Archbishop Paul Kwong is the primate of Hong Kong and chair of the Anglican Consultative Council.

Produced jointly by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Main Street America and American Express and backed by National Geographic, the 2018 Partners in Preservation: Main Streets program will provide a total of $1.6 million in preservation funding to the projects that receive the most votes from the public.Anyone can vote online up to once a day through Oct. 26. Each person may cast up to five votes per day; all of them may go to the same organization, so a participant may give all five daily votes to Church of the Epiphany. To participate, click here. Voters will need to create an account; there is no charge.Church of the Epiphany, Los Angeles, is pictured in 1913, soon after its new building, designed by Arthur Benton, was completed. The original church, designed by Ernest Coxhead – visible at left – became the parish hall. Photo courtesy of Church of the EpiphanyChurch of the Epiphany was founded in 1888 in what was then a middle-class white neighborhood of Los Angeles. English architect Ernest Coxhead designed the original Romanesque Revival church. In 1913, when the congregation outgrew the original building, architect Arthur Benton designed a new church in a mixture of styles that included Gothic Revival, Mission Revival and Romanesque Revival. The existing church was converted to the parish hall and incorporated into the new building. Although Epiphany is considered one of the city’s historic treasures, its buildings need extensive repair after more than a century of constant use.Epiphany’s neighborhood gradually changed in the 1950s and ’60s from white to Latino immigrants, and under the leadership of the Rev. John Luce, the church began to welcome its new neighbors. Epiphany became a Latino cultural center, where Mexican food, dance and religious practices were welcomed even as they were discouraged in schools and society.Luce, an East Coast-bred white priest, took on the cause of Chicano rights as his own as soon as he arrived at the church. “Father John Luce was our patron saint,” said Moctezuma Esparza, a community activist and filmmaker, quoted in an April 2018 story by Los Angeles public television station KCET. “He offered us his church, his basement for us to meet and to hang out. He took us on the march from Delano to Sacramento.”In the 1960s, Epiphany was the birthplace of La Raza, a newspaper for the Chicano movement; Luce provided space in the parish basement and bankrolled early issues.Epiphany also served as an early meeting place for the Brown Berets, a Chicano student activist group whose leaders trained at the Social Action Training center founded at the church by Luce.Church of the Epiphany celebrates its patronal festival on Jan. 6, 2013. Photo: Janet KawamotoUnited Farm Workers founders César Chávez and Dolores Huerta were frequent visitors to the church, which hosted some of the union’s early meetings and was for some years its Los Angeles headquarters. Epiphany was also a planning base for the 1968 East L.A. student walkouts and Chicano Moratorium, events that helped build Latino political and social influence in Los Angeles. Luce and his parishioners also were leaders in the establishment of the United Neighborhoods Organization, a community advocacy group. Church member and longtime Latina activist Lydia Lopez became its president.The church continues to be a center for activism on behalf of immigrants, workers and LGBTQ people, as well as a vital hub of direct services in its Lincoln Heights neighborhood. It was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2005. The Epiphany Conservation Trust was established soon after to raise funds to preserve the church and maintain its ministry. The potential $150,000 from the Partners in Preservation Fund would be an enormous boost, according to Epiphany’s current vicar, the Rev. Tom Carey.Dolores Huerta, center, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America, was guest of honor at an Epiphany Conservation Trust gala in 2017. The church hosted many of the union’s early meetings and was for a time its Los Angeles headquarters. Photo: Janet Kawamoto“If we succeed, we’ll use the grant funds to rehabilitate the church’s basement, where much of the Chicano movement was organized,” said Carey. “The renovated space will house our health care and legal clinic programs, our People’s History Project and community meetings. The grant will also bolster a capital campaign already underway to not only preserve our history, but to keep Epiphany on the vanguard of redefining how the church as an institution can fuel social justice advocacy, service provision and cultural and artistic expression.”– Janet Kawamoto is editor of The Episcopal News, a publication of the Diocese of Los Angeles.

Curry y la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados la reverenda Gay Clark Jennings.Estimados Obispos y Diputados:Cuando les escribimos a principios de junio sobre la necesidad de considerar planes alternativos para la 80ª Convención General, esperábamos que los meses de verano nos traerían más claridad sobre el curso de la pandemia y cómo podríamos planificar para 2021 y más allá. Pero a medida que pasa el verano, los totales de infección y muertos en los Estados Unidos están subiendo cada vez más alto, incluso cuando el virus ha sido controlado en otras partes del mundo. Seguimos afligidos por los hijos de Dios que hemos perdido a esta enfermedad terrible, por aquellos cuyas vidas y subsistencia han sido abrumadas, y por aquellos cuyos espíritus están sufriendo de largos meses de distancia física de sus seres queridos.En medio de esta devastación, sin embargo, varios informes brindan esperanza que el desarrollo rápido de vacunas y terapéuticas eficaces podrían cambiar el curso de la pandemia y dejar reanudarse varios aspectos de nuestra vida comunitaria. Porque la situación sigue tan incierta, todavía no estamos preparados para tomar una decisión sobre cómo y cuando celebraremos la 80ª Convención General. Pero gracias a los esfuerzos del grupo de trabajo que convocamos en mayo, estamos más cerca a saber cómo procederemos si no es posible reunirnos en Baltimore el próximo verano.En caso de que no podemos convocarnos de manera segura en persona el 30 de junio hasta el 9 de julio de 2021, aplazaremos la 80ª Convención General a 2022, colaborando con nuestros socios en Baltimore para determinar las fechas apropiadas. Durante el verano de 2021, celebraremos una convocación virtual de adoración y oración para ayudarnos a escuchar lo que le dice el Espíritu a la iglesia mientras preparamos reunirnos en la Convención General. Y para aprovechar el momento adaptivo que nos enfrenta, nombraremos comités legislativos de ambos diputados y obispos con suficiente antelación de las nuevas fechas de la Convención General, encargándoles a empezar su trabajo de manera virtual utilizando las nuevas destrezas en línea y de Zoom que todos nosotros hemos adquirido en los últimos meses.La decisión sobre cómo proceder es muy importante. Ambos vidas y millones de dólares en contratos de la convención están en juego, y no hay manera de saber lo que las condiciones de la salud pública y económicas prevalentes serán para el próximo verano. Pero en todo, nuestros valores primarios siguen siendo el bien común y la salud, seguridad y bienestar de las personas que viajarían a la Convención General y las personas que nos encontraríamos mientras viajamos y nos reunimos.En el otoño, reevaluaremos la situación de la salud pública y consultaremos de nuevo con epidemiólogos que nos han dado su tiempo y consejo tan generosamente. En octubre, esperamos pedirle al Consejo Ejecutivo su asesoría y consentimiento para nuestra decisión final sobre cómo procederá la 80ª Convención General, pero reconocemos que quizás no será posible finalizar nuestros planes tan rápido.Sabemos que la incertidumbre que continua sobre el horario de la Convención General hace difícil planificar los presupuestos y horarios para 2021 y más allá, pero esperamos que el entender el plan alternativo les ayudará a prepararse por lo que podría venir.  Representa nuestros mejores esfuerzos de amarse los unos a los otros como Jesús nos lo ordenó, lo que es nuestro testimonio más grande y llamado más alto.Fielmente,Rvdmo.

Curry and President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings.Dear Bishops and Deputies:When we wrote to you in early June about the need to consider alternative plans for the 80th General Convention, we hoped that the summer months would bring us more clarity about the course of the pandemic and how we might reasonably plan for 2021 and beyond. But as summer stretches on, infection and death totals in the United States are climbing ever higher, even as the virus has been brought under control in other parts of the world. We continue to grieve for the children of God who have been lost to this terrible disease, for those whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered, and for those whose spirits are suffering from long months of physical distance from those they love.In the midst of this devastation, however, some reports offer hope that the fast-track development of effective vaccines and therapeutics could change the course of the pandemic and allow some aspects of our communal life to resume. Because the situation continues to be so uncertain, we are not yet ready to make a decision about how and when we will hold the 80th General Convention. But thanks to the work of the task group we convened in May, we are closer to knowing how we will proceed if it is not possible to gather in Baltimore next summer.In the event that we cannot convene safely in person from June 30 to July 9, 2021, we will postpone the 80th General Convention to 2022, working with our partners in Baltimore as we determine appropriate dates. During the summer of 2021, we will hold an online convocation of worship and prayer to help us hear what the Spirit is saying to the church as we prepare to gather at General Convention. And to make best use of the adaptive moment now facing us, we will appoint both deputy and bishop legislative committees well in advance of the new dates of General Convention, charging them to begin their work virtually using the new online and Zoom skills that we have all gained in the last several months.The decision about how to proceed is a weighty one. Both lives and millions of dollars in convention contracts are at stake, and we have very little way to know what the prevailing public health and economic conditions will be by next summer. But in all things, our primary values continue to be the common good and the health, safety and welfare of General Convention attendees and the people we would encounter while traveling and meeting.In the fall, we will reevaluate the public health situation and consult again with epidemiologists who have given us their time and advice so generously. In October, we hope to ask Executive Council for their advice and consent to our final decision about how the 80th General Convention will proceed, but we recognize that it may not be possible to finalize our plans that quickly.We know that the continued uncertainty about the timing of General Convention makes it difficult to plan budget and schedules for 2021 and beyond, but we hope that understanding the alternative plan will help you prepare for what might be in store. It represents our best efforts to love one another as Jesus commanded, which is our greatest witness and highest calling.Faithfully,The Most Rev. Michael B. CurryPresiding BishopThe Rev.

Eric Grubb and Brandie Grubb had arrived. Photo: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church[Episcopal News Service] The coronavirus pandemic has changed many things about how Episcopal churches operate, including the search and hiring procedures congregations follow when calling a rector.Dioceses and congregations have approached pandemic-era search processes with creativity, based on changing local conditions and restrictions, the Rev. Meghan F. Froehlich, director of The Episcopal Church’s Office for Transition Ministry, told Episcopal News Service.“Each situation is an individual situation. … There’s not a one-size-fits-all approach during the pandemic,” she said. “I have seen God at work in these processes and with our very excellent transition ministers. They have been amazing.”Clergy are deciding whether the Holy Spirit is calling them into atypical discernment processes. If so, then they are facing new challenges, such as having more of the search process conducted online and balancing the desire to explore one’s sense of call against the risks of travel for a final in-person interview.The Rev. Michelle Warriner Bolt, canon to the ordinary in the Episcopal Church of East Tennessee, said, “When normal everyday activities feel risky, folks are less likely to take actual risks,” like moving one’s family during a pandemic. “The increased sense of risk in relocation has changed the marketplace, for sure.”The Rev. Brian Jemmott, canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of New Jersey, added that some possible candidates have not entered search processes because they are reluctant “to leave their congregations right now in the midst of the pandemic if they are the lead person.” However, that hesitation on the part of some clergy has not prevented New Jersey congregations from calling priests, he said.A few dioceses put search and call processes on hold for a time at the beginning of the pandemic. The Diocese of Nebraska, for instance, paused searches in March 2020.“That was mainly as a way to just acknowledge the demands of the moment,” the Rev. Liz Easton, canon to the ordinary, told ENS. The diocese thought that the pressures on parish leadership of trying to answer questions about worship and pastoral care “would impede good discernment,” she said. “When we started to settle into these new rhythms, when we learned new strategies for praying and living, we picked most of those searches up where we left off, with an understanding that the process would require more flexibility and creativity than perhaps it ever had before.”Two rectors started their ministries in the diocese just as the pandemic began. After the diocese resumed searches, three other congregations called rectors.“Our main objective in every single search is for the parish and the clergy to come to know each other really authentically so that we can really discern a match being made by the Holy Spirit,” Easton said. She remains concerned about “the development of the spiritual cohesion of search committees who cannot meet in person.”While many transition officers contacted by ENS said that search committees were making the best of digital meeting platforms, they agreed it is not the same. “I personally believe that the Holy Spirit is active and present and perceivable in a different way when we’re in the same room together,” Easton said.The Diocese of Northern California took a different approach. The Rev. Andrea McMillin, canon to the ordinary, said it was clear that there were pastoral issues as people realized the pandemic was not going to be a short-term event. They had to learn how to stay safe from the virus, work from home and perhaps help children with online school. Those challenges made it hard to think about the longer-term discernment required in search processes, she said.So the diocese chose to have, what McMillin called, “an expanded interim time” during which interims or priests-in-charge might stay with their congregations longer than they would during a typical search process, until there is mass vaccination or at least “greater social stability” in common life. The result “is not a stagnant time,” she cautioned, but rather a fertile space for interim work and worship and a deepening of mission, outreach and formation.Four congregations in the Diocese of East Carolina have called rectors during the pandemic. Another three have brought on interims, and other searches are in the works.“The biggest hardship is not being able to see the candidates in their current parishes because you learn so much about someone in that way,” said the Rev. Mollie Roberts, East Carolina’s canon for diocesan life and leadership, describing the typical visit by a few search committee members to finalists’ congregations. Search committees that are uncomfortable with that lack of knowledge, she added, can pause their process. “Nobody’s done that,” she added.The Rev. Eric Grubb, who was called in September to be the rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Clinton, North Carolina, in the Diocese of East Carolina, said finding a safe way to meet in person was crucial for his discernment process. He and his wife, Brandie, spent two days at the church after driving three hours from Charlotte, where he was on the staff of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church. He led Evening Prayer in St. Paul’s for the committee, and two people gave them a tour of the facility. The interview was conducted indoors with physical distancing. Even so, pandemic restrictions, including on such simple acts as handshaking, made it hard at times, he said.In the end, he and the search committee “really felt the pull of the Holy Spirit throughout this whole process, even though it has been so strange,” Grubb said.Then there’s the process of joining a new community in the midst of a pandemic. “They were very creative in welcoming us here,” Grubb said. Congregation members hung a banner in front of the church announcing the arrival of the couple. They also staged a drive-up welcome during which parishioners stopped at the curb outside the church to greet the Grubbs.In New Jersey, the Rev. Chase Danford completed his agreement to become the priest-in-charge of Trinity Church in Asbury Park in early March. “It was less than 10 days later that everything started shutting down,” he recalled.Barely a week later, he and his husband, Giuliano Argenziano, became ill with presumed cases of COVID-19.Danford was scheduled to move from Queens to Asbury Park in May and begin at Trinity on June 1. The start date remained the same, but he spent the first two and a half months either leading worship online or commuting back and forth once limited in-person worship resumed July 12.Trying to get to know parishioners, he invited them to sign up for “meal meet-ups” on Zoom, joining him for breakfast, lunch, teatime or dinner. It wasn’t the same as meeting in person, though. “There’s going to need to be a lot of relationship-building happening in the second year of my ministry that normally would have happened the first year,” Danford said.Search processes will continue to change as the course of the pandemic does, especially as more people are vaccinated, East Tennessee’s Bolt predicted. For instance, she anticipates “a pretty big wave” when priests who might have put off retirement will decide to take that step.“We’re also going to see folks who had been risk-averse be willing to take more risks,” she said. “I think there’s going to be room for extra innovation, extra creativity, to continue to pay attention and meet the needs we see right before us.”Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the Rev. Chase Danford is the rector of Trinity Church; he is the priest-in-charge. It also incorrectly reported that he was moving from Manhattan; he was moving from Queens.– The Rev.

Bath looking good away from home at Ulster

first_imgMonday Aug 16, 2010 Bath looking good away from home at Ulster Ulster went down 26-14 to Bath in a competitive pre-season friendly in Ravenhill on Friday night. Both sides played attacking rugby when possible, and there are encouraging signs for both parties ahead of their respective seasons.Despite going down on the day, Ulster have plenty of positives to take from the match as they gave starts to a few new caps, with debutant Pedrie Wannenburg crossing for a try late in the game. Wannenburg, formerly of the Bulls and South Africa, made his debut for his new side and says there are good days ahead.“We must not look at the result we must look at the positives, we kept the ball well in the first 20 minutes and we looking forward to the next game. Coming to Belfast is a new challenge for me and the atmosphere was very good and that is a positive for us, he said.“I was a bit rusty as it was the first game of the season and there is still plenty of work to be done, we’re looking forward to the next match.“This is really a good bunch of guys and they have made me felt welcome since the moment I arrived. Bath played pretty well and it was good competition for us but it will be all about the results at the end of the season,” he added.Bath, who now have Lewis Moody in their camp, looked good as they shifted the ball through the hands and created tries for their backs. Matt Banahan crashed through the line for a nice try, as did fellow back Jack Cuthbert.This is just a quick highlights clip to get you in the mood for the UK rugby season, which kicks off soon. Other noteworthy clips from the NH season will be posted over the next few months.

Manu Tuilagi’s powerful try against Saracens

first_imgSunday Mar 6, 2011 Manu Tuilagi’s powerful try against Saracens Manu Tuilagi scored a fantastic try yesterday as his Leicester Tigers side had their nine-game winning run come to an end with a 15-14 loss to Saracens in the Aviva Premiership. Tuilagis try was quite special though, so thats featured here now.Despite this try, it wasnt a great day for the Tigers as they came within a point of victory after Billy Twelvetrees, who had just come onto the pitch, missed a last-minute penalty attempt that would have given them the win at Welford Road.They had the lead at halftime following a great try from Manu Tuilagi, the younger of the two first choice Tigers brothers. He has been steadily building his way up the England ranks and with form like this, might just somehow sneak into World Cup consideration, although at this stage it may be a bit too late.His try was out of the top drawer though, with Kiwis Scott Hamilton and Thomas Waldrom feeding Samoan Alesana Tuilagi, before a long pass reached younger brother Manu. He then brushed aside two tackle attempts before ploughing over the last as he went in at the corner.It wasnt enough though, as the disappointing loss for his side means that Saracens are now up to within two points of the Tigers at the top of the table. It was a great try nevertheless. You’ll be able to view highlights from the game on the Eplayer sometime within the next day or so. If you’re not sure what the Eplayer is, it’s to the right and looks like. :: Related Posts :: Manu Tuilagi’s well timed tackle vs Northampton Saints Alesana Tuilagi huge hit on Mark van Gisbergen Manu Tuilagi’s smashing tackle on Tom Williams Time: 02:08ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Wales tested in Rome but tough it out to beat Italy

first_imgSunday Feb 27, 2011 Wales tested in Rome but tough it out to beat Italy Italy gave Wales somewhat of a Six Nations scare in Rome yesterday, but the visitors were able to subdue them enough and show their experience to take a 24-16 win at the Stadio Flaminio.Wales scored in the first half through Morgan Stoddart, as well as scoring a great try that was finished off by flanker Sam Warburton after a nice Shane Williams run. Stephen Jones was back at flyhalf, kicking 11 points while James Hook was in the center, but managed to slot a late drop-goal.Gonzalo Canale and captain Sergio Parisse both scored for Italy, but four missed attempts at goal proved costly as they struggled to stay in touch.Wales coach Warren Gatland insists that his side still have a chance of winning the championship. “It still puts us in contention for the championship, we’ve got a big game against Ireland at home and then France,” said Gatland.“It’s a tough competition and it’s about building momentum and confidence. We’ve had two tough wins away in the last two games and next we’re at the Millennium Stadium at home and we want to get a result from our next performance.“Today’s was a lot tougher (than Scotland). Italy are a very big, physical side. Perhaps because of the criticism of Italy in their first two games, playing set-pieces, scrums, line-outs, they played a lot more ball in hand,” he added. You can watch extended highlights of the game on the Eplayer on the sidebar. Navigate to ‘Rugby Union’ and there’s an 8 minute long version there, as well as some other highlights.

Nelson Mandela inducted into World Rugby Hall of Fame

first_imgTuesday Oct 6, 2015 Nelson Mandela inducted into World Rugby Hall of Fame Nelson Mandela, who harnessed rugby as a vehicle for social change in 1995 to unite a nation, has been posthumously inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame at a special ceremony during Rugby World Cup 2015.The ceremony took place at St James’ Park in Newcastle on Saturday, prior to South Africa’s much-anticipated Pool B match against Scotland with World Rugby Chairman Bernard Lapasset presenting the coveted Hall of Fame cap to the Hon Deputy Minister of Sport and Recreation SA, Gert C Oosthuizen MP and Francois Pienaar, captain of the South Africa team that won Rugby World Cup 1995 on home soil.Lapasset said: “The World Rugby Hall of Fame recognises those who have made an indelible mark on our sport through feats on the field of play, displays of great character or through their tireless and inspirational work in driving forward our great game. “Mandela certainly fits in that category. He was instrumental in turning Rugby World Cup 1995 into a momentous occasion that united the South African nation through the power of sport. “By supporting the Springboks so passionately and publicly on their way to victory, Mandela helped to change attitudes, soften hearts and convince minds of the right course of history for his country to take and, in the process, became a wonderful example to us all. “Now, 20 years on from that historic tournament, we are delighted to induct the former president into the World Rugby Hall of Fame. It is a fitting tribute to a man who did so much for his country and our sport.”South African Rugby Union President and World Rugby Vice-Chairman Oregan Hoskins said: “Madiba was a great man of vision, determination and integrity who performed a miracle that amazed the world as much as it amazed his fellow countrymen. “His name will rank among the greatest humanitarians and this induction reflects rugby’s ever-lasting friendship and appreciation for a great man.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Springboks Related Articles 84 WEEKS AGO Pieter Steph du Toit named World Rugby Player… 87 WEEKS AGO Josh Larsen sees red for no-arms ruck charge… 94 WEEKS AGO Throwback Thursday: Relive the Battle of… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
