Rector Shreveport, LA June 21, 2012 at 4:35 pm I feel that the proposed covenant is misguided at best. Whatever the intention if adopted it will be used as a foundation to begin to ape the worst of Roman legalism and be used to classify and bully. A more meaningful approach would be to make use of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a measure of our practical and common commitment in Christ to the welfare of those whom Christ loves both within our Communion and in the world. After all the UDHR has been repeatedly affirmed at Lambeth since its inception so it could easily become the metric for our determination to be one body. Rector Bath, NC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group June 13, 2012 at 3:56 pm Somewhere along the way, I received a “Litany for the Churches”. According to the copy given to me, this litany was shared through ecumenical community services in Hartwell, GA in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Litany opens with:LEADER: Let us give thanks for the churches that together form Christ’s world-wide church.PEOPLE: There is One Body and one Spirit, one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism.Among other things, the Litany thanks God for the Roman Catholic Church’s stirring pageantry, for Baptists’ insistence on the freedom of the Holy Spirit, and the Friends’ commitment to non-violence. It also thanks God for the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion:LEADER: We thank you for the Anglican and Episcopal Churches.PEOPLE: For their inclusiveness, their flexibility, their unfaltering commitment to reconciliation and reunion.In the not too distant past, the most unique and defining aspect of the Anglican Communion (including the Episcopal Church) was its inclusiveness, flexibility, and “unfaltering commitment to reconciliation and reunion”. That’s why the author of this litany, Rev. Harry Hannah, chose to celebrate this characteristic above all others. My prayer is that we all remember this spiritual DNA that God has gifted us with as we seek His will for the future of our church. June 9, 2012 at 1:00 am Why need we all agree about this Covenant? The original Quadrilateral had few requirements for membership and a lot of room for different expressions of practicing Christianity. I don’t believe that unity needs to be defined as uniformity. In our daily following of Jesus Christ there is more that we have in common than that we disagree on. Ruth Franke says: Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

I see the current draft of the Covenant as an undesirable effort to circumscribe that diversity.I also think it is important to remember that Church of England leaders in the 16th and 17th Centuries fought very hard against the idea that Church bodies are “infallible.” Neither the Bishop of Rome nor the Anglican Consultative Council can make infallible doctrinal statements!

(an irony since that diocese went through so much turmoil) At the age of 7, I joined the Girls Friendly Society. The motto of GFS is “Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens” We had a candlelight service where we all stood in a circle and we passed the light. As we turned to the girl next to us to share the lit candle, we said “I bear your burdens and I share your light.” Then each of would turn to the next and it would be repeated till the whole circle was in light. Over the years in GFS, I met girls from all over the USA and from other countries and we shared with each other the light of Christ in each of us. In all of this conversation that is occurring about the Anglican Covenant, may we remember that each of us carries the light of Christ. May we honor it; may we respect it. It is the common ground of Jesus’ love that we all share. He died for all of us. May we in turn reach out and be Jesus’ presence of love. Whenever I find myself in a space of righteous indignation or judgment, I remember Mark 10:21 and before Jesus replied to the rich young man, Jesus “looked at him and loved him.” (knowing full well what the rich young man’s response was going to be.) May we be able to let ourselves diminish so that the Christ in each of us can increase and look with love on all those whom we meet and with whom we worship and interact on a daily basis.Your sister-in-Christ Emily Nell Lagerquist Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR June 12, 2012 at 10:11 am This morning I was listening to some contemporary Christian music and a song came on that specifically addressed our need to be in relationship even with our differences – To respond to Jesus prayer “that they all may be one” by gathering together under the umbrella of faith in God in Christ Jesus. I thought of ‘us’ and prayed that the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Communion, could continue in it’s mission of inviting everyone into the knowledge of Christ’s love, setting aside our differences, growing into our commonalities, and remembering that the God we serve is too big to be put in a box that would leave anyone out. Let’s continue the conversations about our differences – all of them – in that respect and love and faith that can truly make us all one.

June 9, 2012 at 8:42 am The Anglican Communion isn’t the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. The Anglican Communion is a human construct. As such, it has – and will always have – limitations and defects. To one degree or another, the Anglican Communion will always disappoint.Like any organization that seeks to survive and thrive, the Anglican Communion must clearly define its beliefs, purpose, focus, values, and priorities, as well as the expectations of the provinces that comprise it. Anything goes isn’t an option.Let’s put it this way: The Episcopal Church of the USA will welcome you. But will you accept the Episcopal Church of the USA and its basic beliefs, purpose, focus, values, and priorities, as largely defined by the Anglican Communion, of which the Epicopal Church of the USA is but one body?

The motion was voted down by 112 to 6 votes, with 13 abstentions.“Our decision not to adopt the Anglican Covenant is not a decision to reject the Anglican Communion,” the Most Rev. David Chillingworth, primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, told synod following the vote.“Nor are we indifferent to deeply held differences of view which are held across the Communion,” he added. “For those differences are also present in this church and they are part of our daily life and relationships. We hold a range of views. They are expressed with integrity, listened to with care and we are committed to living creatively with our diversity.”The decision comes three months after it became clear that Scotland’s neighbors to the south in the Church of England could not adopt the covenant in its current form after a majority of its dioceses voted the document down. The Church of England’s General Synod cannot consider the covenant again until 2015.The Anglican Covenant first was proposed in the 2004 Windsor Report as a way that the communion and its 38 autonomous provinces might maintain unity despite differences, especially relating to biblical interpretation and human sexuality issues. The report came in the wake of the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, an openly gay priest, as bishop of New Hampshire, a development that caused some provinces to declare broken or impaired communion with the U.S.-based Episcopal Church.The covenant also was a response to some church leaders crossing borders into other provinces to minister to disaffected Anglicans and a decision by the Diocese of New Westminster in the Anglican Church of Canada to authorize a public rite to bless same-gender unions.Following five years of discussion and several draft versions, the final text of the covenant was sent in December 2009 to the communion’s provinces for formal consideration.The document’s fourth section, which outlines a disciplinary method for resolving disputes in the communion, has largely been the covenant’s sticking point. Some critics have warned that adopting the covenant could result in a two-tier communion.“Our decision not to adopt the Anglican Covenant says that we think that this was not the right way,” Chillingworth said. “We needed to recognize that what brings division and difficulty to our life as a communion is a number of inter-related issues, not just one – not just the single complex of issues around human sexuality.”The Episcopal Church’s General Convention will consider its response to the covenant when it meets July 5-12 in Indianapolis, Indiana. At present, seven resolutions have been proposed to convention, each calling for different responses to the proposed covenant.Throughout the Anglican Communion, the seven provinces that have approved or subscribed to the Anglican Covenant are Ireland, Mexico, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, South East Asia, Southern Cone of America, and the West Indies.The Anglican Church of Southern Africa has adopted the document pending ratification at its next synod meeting later this year.The Church in Wales in April gave the covenant “an amber light, rather than a green light.” The church’s governing body said it feared the recent rejection of the covenant by the Church of England jeopardized its future and clarifications about that were now needed before a decision could be made. It sent questions on the matter to the Anglican Consultative Council, the communion’s main policy-making body, which meets later this year.Episcopal Church in the Philippines bishops have formally rejected the covenant although the Anglican Communion Office confirmed that it has not yet received a formal notification from that province. Maori action in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia rejecting the covenant last November means that it may be rejected when it comes before the province’s General Synod in July.The Anglican Communion’s Standing Committee agreed at its recent meeting that “no timeframe should yet be introduced for the process of adoption of the covenant by provinces,” according to a release from the Anglican Communion Office.

Clergy – including bishops and primates – within the non-conforming provinces should be designated Non-Conforming Clergy. Communicants within non-conforming provinces should be designated Non-Conformists.Those who feel so strongly about rejecting the Anglican Covenant will wear their designations as badges of superior understanding, sohistication, sensitivity, and moral authority. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Tampa, FL thomas mauro says: June 9, 2012 at 5:09 am The Emperor Constantine called the Council of Nicea, not because he was a pious man who cared deeply about the Christian church, but because he was sick and tired of the constant bickering between and among different factions of Christians. The Council achieved a number of good things, among them agreement as to the nature of Jesus Christ and His relationship to the Father, the Nicene Creed, and the naming of Mary the mother of Jesus as the Theotokos, the Mother of God; and for a time, as least, an end to the squabbling that so annoyed the Emperor.The peace was not to last. For all the earnestness of Jesus’ prayer that “all may be one,” pride, stubbornness, deceit, lust for power, dirty politics, and perhaps here and there a touch of unmedicated insanity fractured the Body of Christ, and Christianity ultimately split into many factions.The Anglican Communion is at a crossroads. Either we do the expected thing and further split into ever smaller and less and less significant pieces or we say, “Enough! The splintering stops with this generation.” Can we not find a way in humility and in agape love to celebrate our diversity, so that when a friend or a stranger feels rejected by one denomination or another, we can say, “The Episcopal Church welcomes you! We’re a big tent, big enough to include you in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. We don’t expect you to check your brain at the door.” Can we not look at sisters and brothers in Christ and trust that God is working in their lives as God is in ours, even though we have different opinions, at least for now. United is the way Jesus wants us, and when united then, truly, we will know in no small measure that peace that is beyond our understanding.” Rector Belleville, IL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Comments are closed.

Oficiales del gobierno creen que estos actos son “violaciones correctivas” y no condenan a los culpables. Se cree que cada día 150 mujeres son violadas en el país. La cadena de televisión CNN presentó recientemente un amplio documental sobre la situación.El gobierno de Cuba ha publicado un extenso informe sobre la muerte de los dirigentes opositores Oswaldo Payá y Harold Cepero, 31. El informe atribuye el accidente a exceso de velocidad y a las condiciones de la vía. El informe responsabiliza al chofer Ángel Carromero, español, aún detenido. El otro pasajero, Jens Aron Modig, 27, ya viajó a su natal Suecia. La familia de Payá y el Movimiento Liberación piden una investigación internacional independiente.Jean Laffitte, secretario del Pontificio Consejo para la Familia del Vaticano, ha dicho en una entrevista con la agencia ACI Prensa, que las personas católicas romanas divorciadas y vueltas a casar deben “participar de la misa y participar en la comunión solamente de manera espiritual”.En Moscú ha comenzado el juicio contra tres integrantes del grupo femenino de rock Pussy Riot, encerradas en una jaula de cristal situada a un lado de la sala. Las acusadas podrían ser condenadas a siete años de cárcel por haber cantado en la Catedral Cristo Salvador de Moscú la canción “Madre de Dios, echa a Putin” en la que se acusa al patriarca ortodoxo Cirilo de creer en el presidente de Rusia, y no en Dios. Su delito: “atentar contra los valores tradicionales de la Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa”.Cinco pastores de la Iglesia Nacional Presbiteriana de México han sido suspendidos como ministros de la Palabra y de los Sacramentos por tiempo indefinido debido a las presuntas faltas tipificadas como delitos en el Libro de Disciplina, entre las que se citan espíritu de desunión, vida sin control del Espíritu, rumores, chismes, difamación, división entre grupos, abuso de autoridad y promoción de divisiones.A pesar de que el gobierno cubano al principio negó la presencia de un brote de cólera en la parte oriental de la isla, el gobierno de Venezuela anunció que ha enviado 20 médicos de la Fuerza Armada Nacional para “prestar apoyo” a las autoridades sanitarias cubanas. El cólera es una enfermedad aguda, diarreica, provocada por la bacteria Vibrio cholerae, que se manifiesta como una infección intestinal. En el siglo XIX una epidemia de cólera cobró unas 300.000 vidas en Europa principalmente en Hungría. Además del cólera se han reportado casos de dengue.Carlos López, obispo de la Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal parte de la Comunión Anglicana, ha ordenado en la Catedral del Redentor de Madrid, a tres personas al presbiterado.

Enhorabuena.Un grupo de monjas católicas romanas recorre en un bus especial varias ciudades de Estados Unidos con el fin de “defender a los pobres y denunciar la reducción de la ayuda social votada en el Congreso”. La prensa secular las ha descrito como “alegres, apasionadas y que poco les importa lo que diga de ellas el Vaticano”. Desde su partida de Des Moines, Iowa, las religiosas han visitado comedores populares y organizaciones de ayuda social al igual que a oficiales electos. La idea de este peregrinaje surgió cuando el Vaticano ordenó “una evaluación” de las religiosas femeninas y criticó “su excesivo involucramiento en temas de justicia social y su falta de convicción en contra del matrimonio gay y el aborto”.Un retiro espiritual juvenil cristiano se convirtió en un verdadero infierno para 85 personas, la gran mayoría menores de edad, que acampaban en una zona boscosa de Ixtapaluca, Estado de México. Al filo de la medianoche una banda armada de 13 forajidos (incluyendo a una mujer) violó sexualmente a dos de las menores y vejó al resto. Las autoridades mexicanas están buscando a los responsables.Marcos Yules, dirigente indígena de Toribio en el suroccidente de Colombia, ha dicho a la prensa que los miembros de su comunidad están cansados de la lucha armada en su región y que por eso piden a las FARC y a las fuerzas de seguridad que “salgan de esa zona a la mayor brevedad”. En días recientes cientos de casas han sido destruidas por la metralla de las FARC en un intento por apoderarse de la estación de policía.VERDAD.

The lowest shelves were about six feet above the floor. Turns out the hazards of a flooding Thames led them to this solution toward protecting the books. Probably past time for library improvements!

The new library will bring together what’s thought to be one of the largest historical ecclesiastical book collections outside the Vatican. There will also be easier access for the public to see these treasures.Read the full article here.

The only Bible on the moon was left there by…

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Tampa, FL [Episcopal News Service] In 1971, St. Christopher Episcopal Church in League City, Texas, gave a Bible to a parishioner, David Scott, to take with him on a business trip. To this day, the congregation still has not gotten it back.That’s because he left it on the moon.As the world commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20, the parish southeast of Houston is remembering its own small part in the history of space exploration. The Bible they presented to Scott appears to be the only one ever left on the Moon, and perhaps the only Bible outside Earth today.The Bible left by David Scott is shown in the red circle. Photo: NASA via St. Christopher Episcopal ChurchDavid Scott was the commander of Apollo 15. Photo: NASAScott was the seventh person to walk on the moon (one of four living people to have done so) and the commander of the Apollo 15 mission. When Apollo 15 launched, Scott was carrying the Bible his parish had given him, though it’s unclear whether this was officially allowed. Apollo astronauts were permitted to bring personal items with them in small bags with weight restrictions. Earlier that year, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell took 100 microfilm Bibles – the entire King James Version printed on a 1.5-square-inch piece of film – with him to the surface of the moon, but he brought all of them back to Earth.Apollo 15 was the first mission to bring a lunar rover to the moon, and Scott was the first person to drive it there. On Aug. 2, 1971, just before returning to Earth, Scott placed the St. Christopher Bible on the lunar rover’s control panel. He walked to a nearby hollow, where he placed a memorial plaque and statuette honoring the astronauts who had died during their missions, and then he returned to the lunar module. (This was kept secret until the post-mission press conference.)David Scott drives the lunar rover on the moon. Photo: James Irwin/NASAScott, who recalled the moment in the book “Two Sides of the Moon,” later presented to his parish a signed copy of a photo showing the Bible sitting exactly where he left it on the lunar rover. That’s where it remains today: in the moon’s Sea of Showers, between Hadley Rille and the Apennine Mountains.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Swamped this summer? 7 tips to keep your family healthy

Please enter your email address here Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The sunny days of summer are here and school may be out, but your family is still as active and busy as ever. It’s easy to get caught up in a hectic schedule of activities, but don’t let the summer hustle keep you from a healthy lifestyle. Enjoying the summer is about balance and planning. These tips will help your family stay happy, healthy and ready to tackle anything the summer months throw your way.1. Fuel up with breakfastSet the tone for the rest of your day with a good-for-you breakfast. A complete breakfast gives you and your family the energy needed to take on the busy summer schedule. There are plenty of easy breakfast recipes that let you eat while you’re running out the door. Try peanut butter or avocado on toast, hard boiled eggs or a fruit smoothie for a quick, satisfying meal.2. Set a summer scheduleCreate a master calendar to hang up in your kitchen. This should include everyone’s daily activities for the summer so nothing is forgotten. Take a look at the calendar at the beginning of each week to get a sense of what’s to come.3. Remain activeEncourage your kids to get outside by planning a weekly outdoor activity as a family. From hiking, biking, a game of tag, skating and swimming, find something your family loves doing together. You can also get some extra steps in by taking an after-dinner walk around the block each night.4. Snack healthyKids love to snack, especially when they’re home for the summer. Stock up on easy go-to snacks like Snack Factory(R) Pretzel Crisps(R), fresh fruit, and granola bars so you’ll be ready when their stomachs start to growl. Pretzel Crisps dipped in peanut butter or hummus create a filling, wholesome snack. They’re packed in resealable bags, making Pretzel Crisps the perfect portable snack for the car rides between swim practice, summer camp and everything in between.5. Stay hydratedInstead of that third cup of coffee, you might want to be more conscious of your water intake. You and your family will need to stay hydrated in the summer heat, so always be sure everyone has a bottle of water with them. If there’s a bottle within arm’s reach, you’re more likely to sip using little conscious effort.6. Make a point to unplugWhile it’s important to let your kids stay connected to friends and peers during the summer, you should also be aware of your family’s technology use. For example, you could make a pact to put away devices at dinner time and two hours before bedtime. Find an approach to regulating technology that works for you.7. Stick with stellar sleeping habitsYour kids will likely want to stay up later in the summer, but make sure they’re still getting adequate sleep. Work as a team to make sleep a family priority.
