Ian Dowling forced to retire

first_imgIan Dowling tackled by Mark Cueto Following extensive medical consultation, Munster regretfully announce that Ian Dowling will retire from professional rugby, as a result of a hip injury sustained earlier in the season Dowling (28) suffered a hip injury in the game against Ospreys last September.In the course of a career that started in September 2005, the Kilkenny native won 97 competitive caps and played in both the 2006 and 2008 Heineken Cup finals and won a Magners League medal in 2009. He would have added greatly to that final total but for injury in 2007 and last season when he was stretchered off in the Heineken Cup quarter final game against Northampton at Thomond Park Stadium. It was a knee injury on that occasion that forced him to miss the rest of the season and he was only playing in his third competitive game that September day when he sustained the hip injury, four minutes into the game, that would ultimately end his career.The hugely popular member of the squad made his debut in the Magners League game against Lllanelli Scarlets in Musgrave Park and ended his first season with 15 caps and a Heineken Cup winners medal having played in the quarter, semi and final of that competition. A try scorer in the 2008 quarter final win over Gloucester at Kingsholm he won his second Heineken Cup medal lining out on the wing against Toulouse and a year later won the first of his two international caps against Canada on Ireland’s summer tour of North America.

(Photo by John Gichigi/Getty Images) Commenting Tony McGahan said, “To hear the news of Ian’s premature retirement is a blow to everyone at the club. Ian’s successful career was underpinned by consistency, hard work and honesty. These values are highly regarded by the Munster squad and the supporters. Ian’s name was one of the first put down on the team sheet because of the way he played to his potential every week. He allowed himself this standard of performance because of the way he approached every day demanding the best out of himself and his fellow players. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “He can be proud of his achievements for Munster and the integral role he played in the success of the teams he was involved in. As a teammate and friend there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do. He brought an attitude and application that was in the best traditions of Munster Rugby.”I and all in Munster Rugby wish him every success in the future.”last_img read more

Six Nation: France finally gamble with selection

first_img Taking centre stage: Jules Plisson will be in the middle of all the action for France in the first round of the Six NationsBy Gavin MortimerFinally Philippe Saint-Andre has dared to be bold à la mode Stuart Lancaster. The two coaches took charge of their countries in the wake of the 2011 World Cup but whereas the Englishman has never shied away from making the daring call, Saint-Andre was a slave to conservatism in the first two years of his reign. Not now, however, with the French coach selecting the most adventurous XV since taking over from Marc Lievremont.Gambling man (finally): Philippe Saint-Andre has been braveJean-Marc Doussain, the 22-year-old Toulouse scrum-half, makes only his second start (and his first Six Nations appearance) for France, while flankers Yannick Nyanga and Bernard Le Roux will pack down either side of Louis Picamoles in a dynamic back-row. There’s also a third cap for 24-year-old Stade Francais lock Alexandre Flanquart – selected in front of Yoann Maestri for his greater athleticism – while 19-year-old centre Gael Fickou is named on the bench.But without doubt the biggest gamble from Saint-Andre is his selection of the uncapped Jules Plisson at fly-half. The 22-year-old will be in good company in Paris on Saturday – what with the English pair of Jack Nowell and Luther Burrell also winning their first caps – but nowhere on a rugby field is a player more exposed than fly-half. He’s the man who makes the decision and it’s a big shout by Saint-Andre to bestow such a responsibility on Plisson’s young shoulders.His partnership with Doussain is the tenth half-back combination that Saint-Andre has fielded in his two years in charge of France. But unlike others, this one could be for keeps. “Jules has a great package, physically and strategically,” explained Saint-Andre on Thursday after announcing his starting XV. “Jules is determined, focused [and] life will be easier for him if his teammates are on the front foot and if his forwards win their duels.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Saint-Andre has gambled in his selection but then so has Lancaster. On Saturday evening we’ll discover which coach can cash in his chips.Jules Plisson features in the features in the March edition of Rugby World Magazine – our Six Nations Special – in shops now! Toulouse’s fly-half Jean-Marc Doussain scores a penalty kick during an European Cup rugby union match betweem Zebre and Stade Toulousain on January 18, 2014 at the XXV Aprile Stadium in Parma. AFP PHOTO / GABRIEL BOUYS (Photo credit should read GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images) Describing the half-back partnership as “young and talented”, Saint-Andre added: “We have nothing to fear in picking Plisson and Doussain against England”.Kicking on: Jean-Marc DoussainDoussain, as he showed in Toulouse’s recent win against Saracens in the Heineken Cup, can also give a pretty good impersonation of a fly-half and it’s this versatility that prompted Saint-Andre to omit Francois Trinh-Duc from his matchday squad and leave Maxime Machenaud as the only recognised half-back on the bench. “He [Doussain] has played the last three games for Toulouse at fly-half,” said the France coach, who stated also that Doussain will kick.Again, it’s a gamble by Saint-Andre, selecting as his front-line goalkicker an inexperienced youngster like Doussain. He was ice-cool against Saracens, slotting seven from eight penalties in their 21-11 victory, but that was a club match in front of 18,000 fans. The pressure on Saturday evening will be far greater in the 80-000 capacity Stade de France, and Saint-Andre will be praying that Doussain is up to the task. Were he to have an off day, then the options are stark: Machenaud can kick, as can Plisson, but neither do so regularly for their clubs and one suspects they wouldn’t much relish the challenge were it to come their way on Saturday.last_img read more

Jonny May scores wonder try against Italy

STARTEngland unpicked and it’s a dream Italian startWatch LIVE @ITV https://t.co/K9pPPwLQEG#ENGvITA #GuinnessSixNations #ITVRugby pic.twitter.com/kK2EnXcLLB— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) February 13, 2021Jonny Hill scored his first try for England when he went over after a series of pick-and-goes on the line in the 14th minute and the second-row then turned creator for Anthony Watson.Hill produced a lovely spin pass to the winger, who then cut inside Italy’s defence to run in unopposed under the posts.It was Watson who scored the bonus-point try in the 50th minute, intercepting a Garbisi pass on his own 22 and sprinting 80 metres to touch down. Jonny May scores wonder try against ItalyJonny May produced a wonder finish in England‘s 41-18 victory over Italy at Twickenham to become his country’s standalone second highest try-scorer.The Gloucester wing went into the Six Nations match joint level with Ben Cohen and Will Greenwood with 31 tries for his country, but he dived over in the corner just before half-time to move clear.He still has a way to go to overtake England’s record try-scorer Rory Underwood on 49, but he showed great skill to touch down for that 32nd try against Italy. It’s bit of a glitch in the laws really. Once Jonny gets airborne- little the defender can do legally other than try to get underneath him when he lands. An argument he jumps tackle before he dives for the line. But under current law interpretation- he’s going to be deemed legal— Ben Ryan (@benjaminryan) February 13, 2021May’s try gave England a 20-8 lead at the break, but it was Italy who had actually started the stronger.They may have going into this match with an unwanted 28-game losing streak in the championship (now 29) but they started with confidence and took advantage of England ill-discipline in the opening minutes to put pressure on in the opposition 22.Then Paolo Garbisi and Jacopo Trulla combined to put Monty Ioane over in the corner. 32 – @J0nnyMay now has 32 tries for England, moving past @RugbyBenCohen and @WillGreenwood (both 31) as England men’s second top try scorer, behind Rory Underwood (49). Airborne pic.twitter.com/mCQhChdhzU— OptaJonny (@OptaJonny) February 13, 2021England scored six tries in all to ensure they bounced back from last week’s defeat by Scotland with a bonus-point win over Italy, but the game was marred by a serious injury to Jack Willis.The hosts kept the ball in hand more than in recent Tests, kicking only 6% of possession, but it was still far from the fluid performance many expected.May’s try certainly provided the highlight. It came just before the break after England opted for a lineout in the 22 from a penalty.England built with some strong carries from the likes of Courtney Lawes, Kyle Sinckler and Luke Cowan-Dickie before moving back to the blind side with George Ford feeding Elliot Daly, who in turn passed to May. The wing took to the air to avoid the tackle of Luca Sperandio and touched down one-handed in the corner. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It’s more than three years since @benjaminryan wrote this on injuries at the breakdown – and after Jack Willis’s horrible injury it’s just as relevant https://t.co/9DjyrTJrMp— Rugby World (@Rugbyworldmag) February 13, 2021Italy scored their second try shortly after Willis was taken off on a stretcher, Federico Mori breaking into the 22 and offloading to Tommaso Allan, before Elliot Daly crossed for England’s sixth in the 69th minute.That was that in terms of scoring and while the result will have been welcome for England, it was still not as convincing as expected. The wing is now England’s standalone second highest try-scorer The Super Bowl was last weekend, @J0nnyMay Enjoy, @EnglandRugby fans.#GuinnessSixNations #ENGvITA pic.twitter.com/WeyR3poPQe— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 13, 2021Eddie Jones said of May’s try: “He’s obvioulsy been watching rugby league tapes, in NRL that’s a very traditional way of finishing, a smart way of finishing. Absolutely brilliant.”There was some controversy about whether it was legal for May to jump into the tackle but it is not actually an offence in rugby’s laws. Jonny May touches down in the corner for his 32nd Test try (Getty Images) Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing in the lawbook about jumping into a tackle.It can be penalised as dangerous play, but the idea that it is illegal unless you are diving for the line is not true.Entirely down to ref’s discretion.#ENGvITA— Paul Eddison (@pauleddison) February 13, 2021 Trust rugby union to take something epic and make it all about the laws Nothing in them about jumping into tackles or diving for the line.

Pero, en su vocación, es la puerta trasera la que ella encuentra particularmente útil.“Por casualidad, siempre que incursiono en el terreno de la igualdad de las mujeres lo hago por la puerta trasera. Muy bien, ya encontraré el modo,” dice.Si bien ella es en la actualidad una sacerdote episcopal en la diócesis de Los Ángeles, no la dejaron ser acólito mientras crecía en lo que ahora es la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana de América. “Pregunté y se limitaron a decirme ‘oh, no, sólo los varones’”.“Yo no me enojé. Sencillamente, así es como eran las cosas”, dijo ella.The Lazarus Chapel before it was redesigned.Cuando quiso jugar béisbol en la escuela primaria, le dijeron que las niñas no jugaban béisbol, se limitaban a animarlo. En lugar de eso, ella se convirtió en “una excelente jugadora de teterbol”.“Siempre fui muy atlética. Nunca dejé que mi cuerpo femenino me reprimiera, pero creo que a veces el mundo lo hizo. Yo sencillamente daría la vuelta.”Su padre, sociólogo y maestro carpintero, le diría: “Ninguna hija mía va a ser secretaria. No vas a aprender economía doméstica ni mecanografía… si sabes esas cosas, eso es lo que te van a pedir que hagas”.“Aprendí carpintería, mecánica automotriz, metalistería, dibujo técnico”, cuenta. “De hecho fui profesora auxiliar en el taller de metalistería de un colegio universitario y en el taller de carpintería de una primaria superior… Mi padre siempre me estaba llevando al garaje, para fabricar cosas. Siempre me gusta decir que puedo blandir un martillo.”Al entrar en la universidad, “supuse que entraría directamente en las clases de arquitectura”. Pero cuando ella indagó, “el profesor dijo que no, que siendo una muchacha sería una perturbación en su clase.“Luego me dirigí al departamento de arte y me especialicé en bellas artes. Mi primer trabajo sería en el departamento de diseño y construcción de una importante empresa de muebles”.En 1985, agrega ella, “el presidente despidió a todos en el departamento y me dijo que me dispusiera a construir edificios, y luego cambié de compañía y comencé a construir edificios allí mismo”. Ella obtuvo una licencia de contratista general y, como autodidacta, aprobó los exámenes para llegar a ser diseñadora de interiores. “Me convertí en diseñadora, me convertí en contratista, al cabo de 20 años, la gente sencillamente me llama arquitecta”.Se mudó de California a Texas, y luego a Washington, D.C., a Chicago y finalmente regresó a California, donde ahora vive en Huntington Beach. Cuando se iba de Chicago, el pastor de la iglesia no denominacional a la que asistía se adelantó a escribirle al pastor de una iglesia en California quien, cuando ella llegó en 1990, le pidió que hiciera una cita para verle. “Entré y el tenía los planos allí y me dijo. ‘¿Querría construirme una iglesia?’”.Fue allí donde ella conoció a su futuro socio de diseño, el asesor litúrgico Walter Judson, de Judson Studios, quien la estuvo asesorando hasta su muerte ocurrida 10 años después. Eso la llevó a empezar su propia carrera en diseño litúrgico, que la ha hecho participar en proyectos en más de 300 iglesias, además de algunas sinagogas y un templo de los Hare Krishna.“Esto es una vocación”, afirma. “Un típico diseñador de la calle no podría diseñar una iglesia. Conlleva un largo período de preparación sobre lo que cada denominación quiere -sus costumbres, sus rituales. Tienes que aprender el lenguaje de cada denominación o el no denominacional. Tienes que conocer su forma de gobierno, si se trata de una sesión o una junta parroquial, un consistorio o [un consejo de] ancianos… Conlleva extrema paciencia trabajar con comités y congregaciones que procesan el cambio.”Entre tanto, Voorhees había dejado la Iglesia Luterana y había estado asistiendo a iglesias no denominacionales.“Cuando yo era pequeña, probablemente de 8 o 9 años, solía mirar constantemente al púlpito, “creo que suponía que debía estar allí’”, dijo ella. “El modelo luterano de pastor… no era el que me venía bien por alguna razón. Lo abandoné y fui a la universidad. Seguí adelante con la vida”.Después de que comenzara a diseñar iglesias, empezó a tener “sensaciones raras, como de que Dios tocaba a la puerta. Recuerdo el haberme preguntado por qué tenía esta sensación de que estaba siendo atraída al altar, al púlpito”.En 1993, entró en la iglesia episcopal de San Wilfrido de York [Wilfrid of York] en Huntington Beach, donde una mujer sacerdote estaba celebrando la Eucaristía. “Una inundación de emociones me golpeó como una tonelada de ladrillos”. Ella se dio cuenta: “ese era el llamado, al sacerdocio… Recuerdo el haberme sentado allí en el banco sollozando”.“Y luego hui de ello por casi cinco años”, comenta. “Finalmente mi director espiritual me dijo: ‘creo que harías mejor si ingresas en el programa [de discernimiento]’”.Voorhees fue ordenada al diaconado en 2004 y al presbiterado en 2005. Ella es [sacerdote] auxiliar en la pro catedral de San Juan [St. John’s ProCathedral] en Los Ángeles, pero sigue trabajando en su empresa Voorhees Design. La mayoría de los asesores litúrgicos en el país son sacerdotes ordenados, hizo notar ella.Más de 35 años después de que la Convención General aprobara la ordenación de las mujeres al presbiterado, Voorhees aún ve “un techo de vidrio emplomado” en la Iglesia Episcopal.“Ese techo de vidrio no se va a romper hasta que la imagen de Dios deje de ser solamente masculina, porque como representantes de Cristo en la tierra, como sacerdotes, seguimos usando una figura masculina para representar esa imagen”, afirmó. El “techo” no se romperá hasta que “comencemos a usar realmente un lenguaje inclusivo y realmente mostremos y enseñemos que Dios no es un hombre con una barba blanca en el cielo”, sino más bien que Dios no es “ni masculino ni femenino”, agregó. “Probablemente eso no va a suceder en el futuro próximo, y es por eso que yo sigo por el camino recto como mujer sacerdote, modelando el sacerdocio como masculino y femenino en su totalidad. Necesitamos ambos para estar completos”.“Puede que yo nunca vea completa la igualdad”, agregó. “No soy más que una humilde sacerdote, que hace su parte del trayecto y que desempeño mi papel en la historia por el sacerdocio -no por las mujeres, sino por el sacerdocio, para hacerlo un sacerdocio completo. Y eso está bien”.“Puedo apoyar la imagen de Dios como hombre o como mujer en las artes”, añadió, “en los vitrales, en los iconos, en las imaginería escultórica”. Ella diseñó el vitral en el centro [diocesano] de la catedral de San Pablo [St. Paul’s] en Los Ángeles, que incluye las imágenes de Julián de Norwich, Hildegardo y Teresa de Ávila y un icono en el altar de las mujeres en torno a Cristo crucificado. “Fue deliberadamente diseñado con las mujeres en mente, y resultó maravilloso que el obispo diocesano [J. Jon Bruno] hiciera eso”.Trabajar en tantas iglesias le ha dado a Voorhees una perspectiva global sobre los retos a que se enfrenta la Iglesia Episcopal y cómo “en la actualidad la situación difícil es muy semejante” y transciende las fronteras denominacionales. En una cultura crecientemente secular, dijo ella, el lenguaje y la estrategia evangelizadores de la Iglesia deben ser “completamente reformados y modernizados”.La Apple usa ahora el término “evangelista” para sus equipos de venta, y llama a sus tiendas “capillas Apple”, dice ella. “Apple es su propia religión, y nosotros estamos perdiendo terreno… No estamos llegando [a la gente promedio] donde ellos ahora mismo se encuentran. Es un mundo muy lastimado, y nosotros seguimos pensando que todos van a venir a nuestras puertas”.“Necesitamos algún portavoz carismático que pueda hablar realmente con los medios de prensa y abordar los problemas de actualidad, y [hacerlo] de una manera muy franca”, [alguien] que se convierta en la persona de la Iglesia Episcopal a la que se dirijan los medios de difusión, tales como CNN, que actualmente se dedica a preguntarles a hombres evangélicos sus puntos de vista religiosos.“Debemos abrazar la tecnología”, prosiguió. Me gustaría ver a obispos e iglesias mantener contacto vía Skype y apps, y juegos, reportajes y películas concebidas “de modo que puedan usarse en iPads en todas las guarderías y escuelas dominicales, porque eso es lo que los niños van a usar”.Otras ideas para revitalizar la Iglesia incluyen el elegir más episcopales como funcionarios del gobierno y mudar el centro denominacional a Washington, D.C. más cerca del “pulso del gobierno y de la configuración de la política”, invertir en la preparación de líderes y en la evangelización; y enseñar a diezmar, subrayó. “Tenemos que levantar a nuestros mejores y más brillantes líderes y ayudarles a establecer la visión de la Iglesia”.Ella dijo también que la Iglesia debe “reformularse and revenderse” and “llevar nuestro mensaje a la calle.“Tenemos que ir [a buscar a la gente] a las calzadas y a los caminos. Ellos no van a venir.”“Para mí, la Iglesia Episcopal es lo que la mayoría de las personas anda buscando, afirmó. “Simplemente no saben quiénes somos”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Anglican world marks 350 years of the Book of Common…

first_img By Trevor GrundyPosted May 2, 2012 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Belleville, IL New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Washington, DC Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Anglican world marks 350 years of the Book of Common Prayer [Ecumenical News International] “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.”“All the deceits of the world, the flesh and the devil.”“Read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.”Shakespeare? The King James Bible? Close — the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, the liturgical and literary masterpiece that (next to the previous two sources) has helped shape the English language and marks its 350th anniversary this year.St. Paul’s Cathedral in London celebrated the occasion on May 2with a special service of evensong from the 1662 volume. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams attended, along with members of Prayer Book societies in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.“I hope and pray that people in Britain and around the English-speaking world realize the importance of this great work,” Prudence Dailey, chair of the Prayer Book Society in the U.K. , told ENInews.The service is the flagship of a nationwide series of events that includes an exhibit at Lambeth Palace Library that also acknowledges the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, looking at the relationship between the monarchy and the Prayer Book. It includes a copy of the first Prayer Book, published in 1549, and the copy used at Queen Victoria’s wedding.The anniversary actually refers to the revised edition that still stands as the official doctrinal standard of the Church of England and most other churches in the worldwide Anglican Communion. After Henry VIII’s break with the Roman Catholic Church, Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer set out to replace the Latin missal with a book of liturgical services and prayers in English that would also incorporate theological changes, such as less prominence for saints.The Prayer Book now appears in many variants in the 85-million member Anglican Communion and has influence the liturgical texts of other denominations.It has proved “very adaptable over the centuries and has been used in many contexts. Many people do prefer the less convoluted language of modern services but the influence of the old Prayer Book permeates the new versions, with many prayers incorporated with minimal changes,” the Rev. Gordon Jeanes, a former lecturer in church history at the University of Wales, who appeared at a symposium on the BCP last March at the British Academy in London, told ENInews.The book’s language — another phrase is “till death us do part” from the marriage service — resonates even today, said Bishop Stephen Platten of Wakefield (Yorkshire), chair of the Church of England’s Liturgical Commission. “Even in an apparently secular world, large numbers come to have their children christened or baptized. The cadences of the Prayer Book have become part of a treasury of prayers and reflections that have helped to fashion people’s lives,” he told ENInews.But the Prayer Book’s language, though appreciated, has been subject to revision and various Anglican churches have produced updated versions.In the U.S., for example, the break with Britain in 1776 left church leaders feeling the need for their own Prayer Book.“William White, the first Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, spoke of the need for ‘a church government that will contain the constituent principles of the Church of England and yet be independent of foreign jurisdiction or influence,’” noted the Rev. Canon Dr. C.K. (Chuck) Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, in an interview with ENInews.“By definition, this meant the creation of a new American form of the Book of Common Prayer.”He said that as the nation grew, so also has the church in America and three Prayer Book revisions have since emerged. The latest, the 1979 edition, reflects an appreciation of heritage while also taking into account more recent liturgical forms.Robertson added that, “it should be noted that even in England, though the 1662 book remains the official Prayer Book of the Church of England, most congregations on a regular basis use their own revised texts, including the recently produced Common Worship.” May 3, 2012 at 2:32 am I am glad to note that the American break with Britain was the event that caused the break with the Church of England. The Episcopal Church began as the church leaders of the time did think we needed our own prayer book. Even the present prayer book is due for some revision, a few new litugies, and, as a woman, I think more inclusive wording is in order I do appreciate the history of the prayer book and the continued revisions. Thank you Thomas Cranmer. Featured Events May 7, 2012 at 3:25 pm Yes indeed, thank you Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. It should be noted he was executed (burned at the stake) for compiling the Prayer Book as well as many of those associated with earlier bible translations that resulted in the King James bible.

Foto para ENS de Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service — Auckland, Nueva Zelanda] Uno de los titulares de la reunión de 12 días del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano que concluyó aquí el 7 de noviembre (hora local) debía ser, en palabras de uno de sus miembros, “la Comunión Anglicana realmente funciona”.“Está en perfecto estado, plena de entusiasmo, concentrada en su misión… En honor a la verdad, esta vez estamos reamente unidos”, dijo Suzanne Lawson, de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, durante una sesión para reflexionar inmediatamente antes de terminar la reunión.La Rda. María Cristina Borges Álvarez, de Cuba, dijo al Consejo que el mensaje que ella llevara de regreso a su país es acerca “del gran compromiso que la Comunión Anglicana tiene respecto a la justicia de género, la eliminación de la violencia y también la justicia medioambiental”.El consejo aprobó resoluciones relacionadas con cada uno de esos temas durante su reunión del 27 de octubre al 7 de noviembre en que sesionara fundamentalmente en la catedral de la Santa Trinidad de esta ciudad.Y si bien el Muy Rdo. Herman Browne, de la Iglesia de la Provincia de África Occidental, dijo que él creía que el CCA “se estaba convirtiendo cada vez más en un foro donde las auténticas diversidades pueden oírse y valorarse”, el Ven. Canónigo Moses Chin, de la Iglesia de la Provincia del Sudeste de Asia, observó “el mucho tiempo que lleva ponerse de acuerdo en algo”.Stephen Lyon, del personal de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana, tuvo a su cargo dirigir la sesión de reflexión, en la cual llamó primero a los miembros laicos, luego a los clérigos, y luego “descendiendo en el orden jerárquico”  preguntó “¿hay —pregunta estúpida— algunos obispos que quieran decir algo?” Pregunta que respondieron con risa estentórea y aplausos.El arzobispo Ikechi Nwachukwu Nwosu, de la Provincia de Aba, de la Iglesia en Nigeria, dijo que, conociendo los retos que enfrenta su diócesis y su provincia, “le preocupa el proyecto de mantener el CCA y su sostenibilidad en el futuro”.James Tengatenga, obispo de la Diócesis de Malawi del Sur y presidente del CCA,  concluyó la sesión diciendo “hubo un grado de profundidad y de sinceridad que no había visto en mucho tiempo, que no era simulado”.En una sesión informativa de prensa entre el final de la reunión y la Eucaristía de clausura del CCA, el arzobispo de Cantórbery Rowan Williams dijo que la labor del Consejo respecto a la violencia de género, la crisis medioambiental y el testimonio cristiano en un mundo plural “ha sido fundamental para nuestra tarea”.Esos problemas “son en verdad interrogantes sobre qué clase de humanidad buscamos promover y servir, lo cual es el asunto más profundamente cristiano”, dijo él.La gente se cuestiona estos problemas y se pregunta qué tiene la Iglesia que decir sobre ellos y “creemos que, como Iglesia, tenemos recursos sin paralelo para enriquecer la humanidad de las personas de esa manera”, afirmó Williams.“Me siento muy complacido de que hayamos llegado hasta aquí. Hemos permanecido unidos, hemos encontrado muchísimas cosas que hacer mutuamente y muchísimas cosas que decirnos los unos a los otros”.En uno de sus últimos actos oficiales, el CCA-15 aprobó una resolución con el fin de disipar las impresiones después de uno de los pocos ejemplos durante la reunión de lo que uno de los miembros llamó un “tirijala a favor y en contra”.La Resolución 15.39 observa la adopción de la 15.21 sobre el proyecto de Indaba Continuo de la Comunión el día anterior y llega a decir que el Consejo “entiende que Indaba sea un proceso de conversación sincera que labora en pro del desarrollo de la comunidad, energiza la misión y proporciona un contexto en que pueden resolverse los conflictos”.Durante el debate del 6 de noviembre tocante a la primera resolución, el obispo keniano Samson Mwalunda sugirió añadir que Indaba Continuo debería ser un proceso para afianzar todas las conferencias pananglicanas.El Consejo debatió añadir texto a la 15.21 en el que decía que el proceso debería usarse “con vistas a alentar la solución de problemas en disputa”. Nwosu apoyó esa adición que finalmente fue rechazada.Él luego le dijo a Episcopal News Service que, si bien está de acuerdo con todo respecto al proyecto de Indaba, “sólo quería que se añadiera un poquito más en esa dirección”.El 7 de noviembre, al arzobispo Thabo Makgoba, de África del Sur, se le permitió que le presentara al Consejo la Resolución 15.39, aunque ya había pasado la fecha tope para la presentación de resoluciones.La resolución se proponía afirmar que “Indaba no rehúye la solución de problemas” y reconoce “su importancia en mantenernos unidos mediante el don del Espíritu Santo porque creemos en la Comunión” y como Anglicanos recibimos parte de su identidad a través de la Comunión, dijo Makgoba.Él reconoció que los procesos de Indaba se han usado en diferentes lugares con resultados mixtos. En Zimbabue “no ha producido resultados positivos”, pero “ha aliviado las tensiones y el conflicto” en otras partes.En definitiva, agregó Makgoba, “no queríamos que la moción de ayer terminara en un tirijala de pros y contras”.Stephen Cottrell, obispo de la Iglesia de Inglaterra (Diócesis de Chelmsford) apoyó la nueva resolución “como una última palabra en el intento de querer ser una Iglesia que aborde mutuamente los problemas, que esté energizada por la misión y que sí procure resolver sus conflictos, por difícil que sea”.David Chillingworth, primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa, y secretario del grupo de referencia del proyecto, le dijo al Consejo que “nunca fue nuestra intención sugerir que Indaba Continuo no estaba dispuesto a ayudar en la resolución de problemas”.“De otro modo, sería simplemente hablar sin ningún propósito”, prosiguió. “La preocupación era que no debería verse fundamentalmente como una herramienta para resolver problemas, porque creemos que lo que resulta importante es que establezcamos las relaciones dentro de las cuales los conflictos puedan resolverse”.Chillingworth dijo que la Resolución 15.39 “haría patente a las personas a través de la Comunión que Indaba Continuo es lo que hemos establecido como parte del proceso por el cual nuestros problemas más profundos pueden resolverse”.Hubo una resolución el 7 de noviembre sobre la cual no hubo ningún debate. La Resolución 15.40, que da gracias a Dios por la fidelidad y el ministerio del arzobispo de Cantórbery Rowan Williams,  expresa hondo aprecio por su liderazgo como presidente del CCA-13, 14 y 15 y desea las bendiciones de Dios para él, Jane Williams [su esposa] y sus hijos, Rhiannon y Pip, en el momento en que él está por acogerse a la jubilación. Fue aprobada por todos los miembros del CCA con una ovación de pie, después de la cual Williams subió al podio para hacer saber que él se había abstenido de votar.– La Rda.

Zimbabwe Anglicans return to shrine for Bernard Mizeki celebrations

first_imgZimbabwe Anglicans return to shrine for Bernard Mizeki celebrations Rector Collierville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Anglican Communion News Service] Thousands of pilgrims from Zimbabwe and beyond are expected to gather in Harare next week to commemorate the life of Bernard Mizeki, a lay African catechist and missionary martyred in 1896.The celebrations, between June 14-16, will be the first ones held at the martyr’s shrine in more than five years. Previously Anglican pilgrims had been barred from the site by excommunicated and former bishop Nolbert Kunonga.Bishop Chad Gandiya of Harare told ACNS, “After having been in exile for five years and failing to host these celebrations at the shrine, this years’ celebrations are indeed special and the theme God is faithful could not be more timely.“This time we are back at our churches, and all other church properties including the shrine are back in our hands,” he said. “Going by last year’s numbers which were estimated at over 10,000 people, we do not expect anything less this year,”Last year Kunonga, with backing from the police, stopped members of the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) from worshipping at the shrine. Pilgrims instead went ahead and celebrated the event at the Marondera show grounds, an area located about 11 kilometers from the shrine.Commenting on this year’s event, the Most Rev. Albert Chama, CPCA primate and bishop of Northern Zambia, said he was grateful to God that the festival will be held at the shrine.He also explained the relevance of the event to Christians in Africa and how they can learn from a life guided by Bernard Mizeki. “[African] Christians should know that the route they have chosen is not without challenges or hurdles,” he said. “Christianity is about actions, some of which can lead to death. All pilgrims should remember that death in Christ is in fact a gain.“The event itself shows the importance of Christianity among Africans,” said Chama. “Bernard Mizeki was an African who was martyred for propagating the Good News to fellow Africans at a time when they did not understand the Christian faith.”Gandiya said Bernard Mizeki’s life had been one of deep commitment to God and his people. “Even after being warned, he decided to preserve the lives of others at the expense of his own.”“As a shepherd, you don’t desert people that have been put under your care,” the Bishop said. “Having been in exile for a long time, we understand and find a lot of relevance and comfort from his life.”Gandiya also revealed that the preparations for the celebrations are in the final stages and that they are ready and happy to host the event freely for the first time in more than five years.He concluded, “This is the first time that we won’t be looking over our shoulders as we celebrate this special day.” Tags Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Washington, DC Rector Shreveport, LA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Youth Minister Lorton, VA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Anglican Communion Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate Diocese of Nebraska New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

His death will be a loss to many and I pray for those who will miss him most. May God bring comfort to all who grieve and strength for the living of these days. Freda A.

Lucretia Jevne says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR December 18, 2013 at 10:47 am My family and I first met Doug and Sue at St. George’s Church in Bolton, CT. Little did I know what an impact he would have on my life and the life of my family. My mom and Sue were good friends and I can remember visiting them when Doug moved from Bolton to Willimantic. We moved. They moved. We moved again. They moved again. Shortly after my husband and I moved to Littleton, NH, I heard his name as being one of the candidates for Episcopal Bishop of NH. I told everyone I knew about him and what a presence he had about him. When he was ordained, my mom and my husband and myself attended his ordination. Even though I no longer attend the Episcopal church, every once in a while I would run into him and he would start the conversation with “I remember when…” I’ve been married now for more than 30 years and moved around the state of NH and there is Doug again….He attended the Episcopal church in Newport, NH when he and Sue were in residence in Sunapee. My husband has a client whose mother was the minister there, and it was like “…so you know Doug?” I last saw him two Christmas Eves ago at the Newport church. At the end of the service, he was telling everyone in the church that me and my family were members of one of his first churches. Little did I know that it would be the last time I saw him. My husband saw him a few months later when he came to visit the minister’s son, who is my husband’s client. And he always remember me and my family. What a legacy he leaves behind….He will be missed among those of us who remain on this earth. But what joy there will be when we are reunited together in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I will never forget him coming over to the house on Christmas to give my mom a bonus and see how us kids were doing. It was so nice to see him.

Theuner was 74.Theuner was born on Nov. 15, 1938, in Bronx, New York, to Grace Elizabeth McKean and Alfred Edwin Kipp Theuner. Theuner is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jane Lois Szuhany Theuner, and two children, Elizabeth Susan DiTommaso and her husband Frank of Hampton, New Hampshire, and Nicholas Frederick Kipp Theuner and his wife Charlotte Driver of Morehead City, North Carolina; and by five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter, according to the Concord Monitor.Theuner earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Wooster, in Wooster, Ohio, and a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Bexley Hall, the Divinity School of Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio; and a Master of Arts degree in history from the University of Connecticut. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by Cuttington University in Liberia in 2000. The Episcopal Church founded Cuttington University in 1889.Theuner was ordained a deacon and priest in 1962 in Ohio, and served congregations in Ohio and Connecticut before being elected bishop coadjutor of New Hampshire in 1986. He served as bishop of New Hampshire until his retirement in 2003, according to the diocese.His episcopacy was distinguished by his strong stands and advocacy for social justice, serving on boards and committees on AIDS, human sexuality, family planning and Planned Parenthood.He was the president of Province I from 1994 to 2002, and was a member of the Presiding Bishop’s Council of Advice, of which he also served for five years as president. He was a member of the board of directors of Lutheran Consolidated Community Services of Concord, and of the advisory committee for the Emergency Cold Weather Shelter of the First Congregational Church of Concord, according to the Concord Monitor.The burial office was held Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. at St. Paul’s Church in Concord and a requiem Eucharist was to be held at the Church of the Epiphany in Newport at 3 p.m. November 13, 2013 at 4:57 pm +Doug was a friend and mentor. He and my father plotted and planted many good things while he was that “cardinal rector” in Stamford, CT. His sermons were inspirational and provocative. He preached at my father’s memorial and continued to watch over our family. I loved to visit him at Lake Sunapee and hear his stories of my father and their time together at St. John’s. His death seems sudden and he was young. May his soul rest in peace and may he hear “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I will miss him. Freda A. Gardner says: Press Release Service Featured Jobs & Calls Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ November 12, 2013 at 6:42 pm Doug was a colleague in Connecticut, a “cardinal rector” at St. John’s, Stamford, but you’d never know it! He loved to push the envelope on a number of fronts and it was no surprise that he was elected bishop eventually. His son and my older son were cabin-mates at Camp Washington, and purported to be two wild pk’s, although they didn’t succeed!Doug played a large role in the election of Gene Robinson and preached at Gene’s consecration 10 years ago; and it was a “zinger” of a sermon.It’s sad to learn of his death at such a young age, just two years older than I am!

Foto de Janet Kawamoto.[Episcopal News Service] Los carismas de las escuelas episcopales — una “generosa amplitud, paciencia con flexibilidad, y una búsqueda del saber que se asienta en la creencia profunda y perdurable en la bondad y creatividad del mundo”— las hacen particularmente idóneas para la formación de líderes en un mundo cada vez más globalizado e interconectado, dijo la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori a los asistentes a una reunión en Anaheim, California, el 21 de noviembre.Más de 650 maestros, directores de escuelas, obispos, rectores de parroquias, administradores, capellanes y otras personas venidas de diversas partes del mundo se reunieron del 20 al 22 de noviembre para festejar la educación episcopal y el 50º. Aniversario de la Asociación Nacional de Escuelas Episcopales (NAES, por su sigla en inglés).“La educación episcopal aborda el panorama general… supervisando, ascendiendo a la cumbre en un sentido estratégico para ver la totalidad del paisaje, y no sólo el contexto inmediato y local”, dijo la Obispa Primada.“Se trata de comprensión y de inclusión; se trata de una orientación hacia la totalidad del cuerpo [social], en lugar de sólo hacia una parte. Ese supuesto fundamental es el porqué reúnen a estudiantes de tan diferentes tradiciones religiosas y de ninguna, el porqué buscan a estudiantes de diversos estratos sociales, el porqué con tanta frecuencia atraen a estudiantes internacionales, el porqué procuran con ahínco creciente ser más plurales que las comunidades en la cuales están establecidas”.Ella retó al grupo a considerar un nombre que refleje su carácter global. También asistían representantes docentes de Haití, de Australia y de Canadá.Ejemplos notables de la docencia como misión incluye, dijo ella, a la Universidad de Cuttington en Liberia, a la Universidad de Rikkyo en Japón, a la histórica Universidad de San Juan [St. John’s] y a la Universidad de la Trinidad [Trinity] en Manila.La NAES comprende más de 1.000 escuelas en Estados Unidos y otros países, según el Rdo. Dan Heischman, su director ejecutivo.“En mi opinión, éste es uno de los campos de misión de la Iglesia más importantes y valiosos de la Iglesia”, dijo él. “Se ocupa de plantar semillas. En lo que respecta a posibilidades, la Iglesia se preocupa muchísimo de lo que puede hacer para llegar a las personas no religiosas que podrían interesarse en la Iglesia Episcopal. Sólo un 20 por ciento de los estudiantes que asisten a escuelas episcopales son episcopales, de manera que tenemos una fantástica oportunidad de llegar a la gente… de tener un verdadero impacto en sus vidas, de diversas maneras”.Las escuelas varían de tamaño, desde las muy pequeñas, como la escuela de San Timoteo [St. Timothy] en Compton, California, de sólo siete alumnos, hasta la más grande, Iolani, con más de 2.000 alumnos en Honolulú. La mayoría tiende a concentrarse en el desarrollo preescolar y de la temprana infancia.Además de reunir a educadores con vistas a la colaboración y la interconexión, la conferencia “está formulando una visión para los próximos 50 años”, dijo Heischman. “Es una oportunidad para las escuelas episcopales a través de la Iglesia de reunirse, de celebrar las cosas estupendas que hacen las escuelas y del impacto que tienen. Muchas de nuestras escuelas están aisladas de las demás”.Earvin “Magic” Johnson, el gran baloncestista retirado de los Lakers de Los Ángeles, se dirige a la reunión de la NAES. Foto de Janet Kawamoto.Earvin “Magic” Johnson, el gran baloncestista retirado de los Lakers de Los Ángeles se dirigió a la reunión como un padre cuyos hijos asistieron a Campbell Hall, una escuela episcopal de la zona de Los Ángeles.Johnson, que ahora es copropietario del equipo de béisbol Los Dodgers de Los Ángeles, del equipo nacional de baloncesto femenino Los Ángeles Sparks, y del Club de Fútbol de Los Ángeles, un equipo profesional, se refirió a la importancia de enviar a sus hijos —y ahora a un nieto— a una escuela episcopal.“Muchísimas veces, ustedes han realizado una labor ingrata, porque los jóvenes no entienden lo que han hecho por ellos. Yo he disfrutado cada momento que mis hijos han pasado en Campbell Hill. Estoy tan orgulloso de que mis niños hayan asistido a Campbell Hill que no podría imaginarlos en ninguna otra escuela”, afirmó.“Me encanta la capilla de los viernes, pero también todos y cada uno de los días en que ellos obtuvieron una educación de calidad que no les cambió su identidad como E.J. y Elisa. [Esa educación] les permitió ser ellos mismos y tener un poco de gracia social… porque eso es importante”.Él también comentó la importancia de la educación en preparar a los jóvenes para ser líderes, como su propio caso a partir de un origen humilde en el pueblo de Lansing, Michigan, donde él y sus nueve hermanos vivían en una casa de tres habitaciones.Un maestro le pidió ayuda durante un período de tensiones raciales, y Johnson, ahora de 55 años, le dijo a la reunión: “ese día Dios me hizo líder”, una tradición que ha mantenido desde entonces.Los temas de los talleres y los conversatorios también se concentraron en algunos de los retos que enfrentan las escuelas, entre ellos el mantener una identidad como escuela episcopal en medio de los cambios demográficos, las [nuevas] tecnologías y una creciente cultura secular.La psicóloga Madeline Levine, autora de The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids [El precio del privilegio: cómo la presión de los padres y las ventajas materiales están creando una generación de niños desconectados e infelices] (HarperCollins, 2008), y primera oradora de la reunión, explicó cómo las limitadas definiciones del éxito estresan y marginan innecesariamente a los estudiantes creativos.Como psicóloga en ejercicio, sus clientes incluyen a niños que “han entrado en crisis por haber sido totalmente protegidos del fracaso, el reto y la decepción”.Citando a una madre que le dijo que no podía soportar ver a su hijo infeliz, Levine recalcó: “Si usted no puede soportar ver a su hijo infeliz, ha elegido la carrera equivocada… porque eso es una realidad de la vida. De qué manera pasa un niño de que se le rompa su juguete preferido a los 5 años a que se le rompa el corazón a los 15 por un primer amor, a que lo despidan de su primer empleo a los 25, a la pérdida de sus padres a los 55… sencillamente así es la vida y la preparación para la vida incluye no sólo las admisiones universitarias, sino la capacidad de enfrentar los retos de una manera sana”.Ella agregó que uno de cada cuatro estudiantes del último año de secundaria en comunidades prósperas tiene una enfermedad mental diagnosticable. “Desde el punto de vista de la pérdida de niños con posibilidades, es enorme. Desde el punto de vista de los trabajadores, es enorme. Desde el punto de vista de una democracia dinámica, es enorme. Y si fuera cualquier otra cosa, salvo una enfermedad mental, habría habido una gigantesca campaña, pero la salud mental es un gravísimo tabú”.Contó que una secundaria afiliada a la Universidad de Stanford, California, donde ella trabaja, “acababa de tener su séptimo suicidio en dos años”. Los factores coadyuvantes incluyen falta de apoyo, falta de sentido [en sus vidas] y falta de adultos conocedores que los supervisen, afirmó.La conferencia incluyó también centenares de sesiones de temas tan variados como equidad y justicia, liderazgo y gobierno, el ministerio de la enseñanza, vida escolar y estudio personal de la identidad episcopal dirigido por Heischman.El culto y la capilla diarios contaron con la participación de algunos jóvenes, entre ellos la de Sarah Engel, de 17 años, estudiante de la escuela episcopal de Santa Margarita de Escocia [St. Margaret of Scotland] en San Juan Capistrano, que predicó sobre la esperanza en el futuro y la historia de Jonás en el Antiguo Testamento (Jonás 1:17).“Con frecuencia en nuestras vidas nos encontramos huyendo de nuestros objetivos —ya sea con plena conciencia de ello o no. Menos mal que en el momento en que nos damos cuenta de que nos hemos equivocado, en el momento en que nos percatamos de que en verdad nos hemos metido en un lío, Dios nos envía un gran pez para tragarnos por entero” le dijo ella a la audiencia.“En otras palabras, Dios nos da una oportunidad de pensar, mientras nos conduce activamente hacia nuestra segunda oportunidad. Si somos como la gente de Nínive, permitiremos que esa segunda oportunidad nos transforme. Percibimos el atisbo de la esperanza, el susurro de la salvación, en cualquier problema en que nos encontremos, y nos aferramos a él. Podemos asumir ese indicio de Dios y convertirlo en el centro de nuestras vidas.“Como cristiana y como una adolescente excesivamente impresionante y hormonal, esta esperanza es para mí lo más importante, el mayor consuelo de mi vida”.“Miro a los ojos de mis padre, miro a los relatos que me han contado desde que era bebé, miro al estrellado cielo nocturno, y siento que Dios me dice que esta esperanza es inquebrantable. Me esfuerzo por llevar este conocimiento a mi vida diaria. Constituye un reto, algo que creo es una trayectoria de por vida. Lo cierto es que la esperanza que encontramos en Dios no es más que un pequeño atisbo, y eso no explica nada. No obstante, eso significa todo. Mi oración es que mantenga ese atisbo ante mí en el transcurso de mi vida y que lo valore como el milagro que realmente es”.– La Rda Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.
