Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Jonathan Daniels House: Building the kingdom of God The Rev. Edmund Harris[Episcopal News Service] Jonathan Myrick Daniels was a 26-year-old seminarian when he heard the televised appeal of Martin Luther King Jr. for students and clergy to join the struggle for civil rights.Inspired by the words of the Magnificat about the God who “hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble and meek,” he knew he had to travel to Selma. Once in Alabama, he took up the work of building the kingdom of God: integrating local Episcopal churches, registering African-American voters, tutoring children, and galvanizing relief agencies.After being released from jail for joining a picket line, Daniels was shot and killed while pushing an African-American teenage girl, Ruby Sales, out of harm’s way.Although Daniels is recognized as a martyr of the Civil Rights Movement, few people know that he spent time ministering in South Providence, Rhode Island, before traveling south.Sheila Conway, who grew up in the Roger Williams Public Housing complex and attended Christ Church on the lower South Side, got to know Daniels when he worked at Church House, which offered programming for neighborhood youth. Conway vividly remembers the last time she saw Daniels.“Daniels was in town to say goodbye to friends and my family could not attend the gathering because a family member was ill. He made a point of stopping by our apartment to pray for healing,” she recalled. “There was such a sense of calm.” In August of 1965, a college student involved with Church House knocked on the door to personally tell them that Daniels had been killed.Conway is now part of a new initiative in the Diocese of Rhode Island to establish Jonathan Daniels House, a residential service community for young adults. As a potential member of the Episcopal Service Corps, an expanding network of more than 20 service communities for young adults in cities across the country, Jonathan Daniels House will welcome four to eight young adults to South Providence, we hope in the fall of 2013.Participants in Episcopal Service Corps communities live intentionally in Christian community, work alongside service agencies embedded in local communities, and engage in vocational and spiritual discernment for a period of  nine to 11 months. They receive a modest stipend to cover living expenses as well as health insurance, and are supported by a program director and mentors.The idea of Jonathan Daniels House is the fruit of a yearlong study conducted by the South Providence Task Force. The Task Force considered how the Episcopal Church could maintain an active presence in South Providence following the closure of Church of the Epiphany there in 2009.As the Task Force considered how vital ministry of the Episcopal Church might emerge from the needs and hopes of communities in South Providence, including ways the diocese might partner with existing organizations there, the possibilities for collaboration crystallized around the idea of planting a residential service community for young adults.As members of the task force shared with Diocesan Council in June, a community like Jonathan Daniels House would have a wide-reaching impact in South Providence, forming diverse new communities of people, and expanding the reach of existing organizations and programs. Such a community would also have a significant impact on the life of the diocese, nourishing a regular young adult presence, galvanizing parishes and diocesan organizations to become involved, and connecting the diocese to the wider church in service.“We can think of no better way to continue the work of justice and reconciliation for which Daniels lived and died,” they said.—The Rev.

Altars big and small

first_img Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT [Episcopal News Service] A number of years ago, my family and I came back to the United States after a semester in England. As we were going through customs, an official picked up my son’s backpack, felt its heft, and exclaimed, “Whew! What’s in here? A bunch of rocks?”“Yes, sir,” answered my son, for his backpack was indeed full of rocks that we had picked up on our travels through the British Isles. Each carried a memory of some special place we had visited. We were grateful to learn that day that it’s not illegal to haul rocks across international borders, though they will mystify customs officials.Our family’s rock-gathering habits came to mind recently when I visited the Grotto of the Redemption, an ornate folk-art landmark that covers a city block in the small town of West Bend in northwest Iowa. So this is what can happen when someone’s rock gathering gets out of hand, I thought, gazing up at the conglomeration of concrete studded with pieces of rose quartz, polished agates, jasper, malachite, and petrified wood.The Grotto of the Redemption is the life work of Father Paul Dobberstein (1872-1954), a Roman Catholic priest who collected rocks and semi-precious stones on his travels. In 1912, he used his collection to start building a shrine that is now one of the largest grottos in the world. Pilgrims come from around the world to marvel and pray, which is somewhat surprising given the fact that this holy place was created afresh: no one was ever martyred here, no saint ever sanctified it with his or her presence, and the surrounding landscape is not particularly scenic. It’s a testimony to a piece of wisdom made popular in the movie Field of Dreams. If you build it, they will come.Entrance to Iowa’s Grotto of the Redemption. Photo/Lori EricksonThere seems to be something instinctual about the human desire to create sacred space. We set St. Francis amid our garden flowers andtuck the Virgin Mary under the shelter of an overturned bathtub. Many of us do even more inside our homes, creating private altars that seem to grow of their own accord on a shelf in our bedroom or on top of a dresser, spots that gradually accrue photographs, stones, sea shells, candles, holy water, and prayer cards. Each seemingly inconsequential item carries a deep weight of memory, prayer, or hope.The same impulse is at work when families place a cross on the side of the highway where a loved one has died. In winter these little shrines are particularly visible, with their sprays of plastic flowers forming a bright splash of color against the snow. While I hope they help ease the pain of those who mourn, they also carry a message for the rest of us. It’s not a bad thing to be reminded of the fleeting nature of life as we speed along the interstate at 70 miles per hour.Such altars can be community affairs, too, for they often grow spontaneously after a tragedy such as the shootings in Tucson in 2011. Mounds of bouquets appear within a short time, brought by grieving bystanders whose pain is somehow eased by the bringing of a bit of beauty into a place of darkness.We need churches to worship, but I think we need these other large and small altars as well, for they remind us that all the world is holy and that our job is to help bless it. Leaving the job of blessing and sanctifying to the clergy means we shirk one of our primary responsibilities as Christians.While we often think abstract words and ideas best carry the message of our faith, its power is often expressed more clearly and reverently in a flower, a candle, or a little statue picked up at a religious supply store. A friend of mine calls these places “hardware stores for the spirit,” places where you can pick up just the right tool for whatever needs fixing. Sometimes you need a Philips screwdriver, and sometimes you need a plastic figurine of Mary holding baby Jesus, an embodiment of the prayer you carry in your heart.For after all, we follow a man who chose the most ordinary of things—bread and wine—to carry the most important of messages.— Lori Erickson writes about inner and outer journeys at www.spiritualtravels.info.  She serves as a deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church in Iowa City, Iowa.  Statements and opinions expressed in the articles and communications herein, are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of Episcopal News Service or the Episcopal Church.

Article & video: Toua Vang is first Hmong priest in…

first_img June 29, 2013 at 3:10 pm We rejoice with you, Toua, your family and your community.it has been a long, and difficult, path. God has called you to be part of God’s ministry in this world, broken though it may be, but resilient and hopeful. Your ordination not only for the Hmong community but for the larger Asian and Asian American communities, indeed for all of us, is a poignant reminder of the power of resurrection. Hope overcomes despair, love triumphs over hate….Jim+ Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Toua Vang waits for hands laid upon him at his ordination June 27 in Breck School Chapel, Golden Valley, Minnesota. Photo: Diocese of Minnesota[Diocese of Minnesota] Toua Vang was ordained June 27 by Diocese of Minnesota Bishop Brian N. Prior as an Episcopal priest.It looked very much the same as the other ordinations; Prior placed his hands on Vang’s head, saying: “Therefore, Father, through Jesus Christ your Son, give your Holy Spirit to Toua; fill him with grace and power and make him a priest in your Church.”But it was not the same.Vang, a member of the Hmong-majority Holy Apostles Episcopal Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, is not only the first Hmong Episcopal priest — but also the first Hmong priest in the entire Anglican Communion.The Rev. Winfred Vergara, Episcopal Church missioner for Asiamerican Ministries, believes the significance of this ordination goes beyond simple demographics. “It demonstrates that the Episcopal Church welcomes all people,” says Vergara. “The Hmong, Nepalese, Cambodians, and the Laos in the United States are probably some of the most marginalized, underprivileged communities here. So it demonstrates our passion and our commitment to empower people. We do not simply speak about it.”The Hmong culture is very communal; Vang himself is extremely humble. It can be easy to see this as the story of a community rather than an individual. Certainly, the Hmong community in St. Paul is a huge part of this story, and the elders of the community early on identified Vang as a potential spiritual leader, encouraging and supporting him. However, Toua himself took enormous risks and leaps of faith.“Toua was identified and affirmed by the community because of his particular gifts,” says Prior, “and his strong desire to serve both his people and the larger world. Toua has a particular missional zeal that really is very compelling — that you hear from hardly anyone else. He really feels this sense of calling. It’s part of the story of his people because they’ve been people in movement. He feels the call to be with other people who have been dislocated and have had to take a similar journey. I think he feels called to serve people who find themselves dislocated and have to move to a new world. He’s really passionate about that.”Inspired by a conversation with the Rev. Joseph Constant from Virginia Theological Seminary about racial minorities in the church, Vang went through a self-awakening.After much reflection and prayer following the visit with Constant, Vang felt that the Holy Spirit wanted him to think about his life.“So I thought about my life way back as far as I could remember, as a little boy,” says Vang. “I put the pieces of the puzzle together. I was born in Laos, in a war-torn country; I experienced the war, the airplane rages in the sky, bomb explosions, cannon explosions, gunfire, dead people, starvation, sickness, and then the journey when we escaped from Laos and the long journey to Thailand for almost four years, and then coming to this country, learning a completely different language and culture: I had a lot of challenges in my life.”For a Hmong man with a family of four children to support, going to seminary was an enormous risk and hardship, explains the Rev. Letha Wilson-Barnard, the vicar of Holy Apostles and Vang’s sponsoring priest. “This is a really important part of the story of this group of Hmong coming to the church,” she says. “In the 55 years since they were first introduced by French Catholic missionaries to Christianity, only a few Hmong ever pursued the priesthood because being married with children is so important — it’s as if not doing that would be giving up a part of your humanity. Family is so deeply a part of the Hmong culture . . . family is so critical, and to give up having children and being married — it was almost unthinkable.”Leaving, even temporarily, the close-knit Hmong community in St. Paul for Virginia Theological Seminary was equally difficult to contemplate.“The thought of leaving families, jobs, and responsibilities is too hard [for most Hmong to imagine],” she says. “It was a huge sacrifice for Toua and his family to do this. There are some Hmong working in Washington, D.C., but otherwise there is no community out there.”Vang was going leave behind a rich and supportive community for several years.Despite the challenges, Vang felt very strongly called to ministry. “When I understood that ministry was my call,” he says, “I felt very happy. I was in tears, but I was very happy.”“We struggled a lot financially, health-wise; I still struggled with my health at seminary. But with the support of the school and many generous people from Minnesota and the bishop and many churches and the national church and many places around the nation, we survived. They sent support and prayers and we made it through seminary, which is a blessing. It was a rewarding, challenging journey for my family and me, but we made it.”“[These sacrifices and struggles] also helped me to really understand yes: I am truly called to minister. Because if not, with all of these struggles and hardships, I don’t think I would have made it. But because it is a true calling, God has called all of these people to help me in this ministry,” adds Vang. “I will still need a lot of support; I don’t think I will make it without a lot of support from the Episcopal Church and colleagues, friends, and individuals. It is too much. But I have high hopes in my ministry that God will make it possible to do that.”Members of Toua Vang’s community wait for his ordination June 27. Photo: Diocese of MinnesotaToua Vang’s communityVergara believes that Vang’s ordination demonstrates the welcoming aspect of the Episcopal Church at large, as well as the enormous resolve of the Hmong community in St. Paul itself.“The Hmong, despite their poverty,” says Vergara, “took part in the education of Toua. The whole community simply did not depend on the favors of the institution. They themselves spent money; they organized themselves to put up a scholarship for Toua.”Vang agrees. “The support that my family and I have received in the past three years is a big blessing. I have never received such warm love and support in my whole life. Whomever I turn to and whomever I talk to, they always find something to help resolve my issues.”His home congregation, Holy Apostles, is as unique as he is: its transformation into the only Episcopal Hmong-majority church was an unusual confluence of a Catholic Hmong community needing a worship home, fortuitous friendships, and a lot of hard work on the part of Hmong elders and Episcopal Church leaders. “It’s interesting [now] that Holy Apostles has been engaged in translating the Book of Common Prayer in the Hmong language,” says Vergara. “I would commend them in being our spokespersons for the Hmong as part of the total people of God.”“Even in Laos, [the Church does] not have a Hmong ministry. Even in Southeast Asia, they are the most marginalized. I want to emphasize how significant it is that the Hmong community is being raised up and being developed. The Hmong youth are some of the most active in the Episcopal Evangelism Network. They should be proud of that.” (You can read more details about Holy Apostles and its unusual beginnings here.)Preparing for the ceremonyA few days before the ordination, Toua Vang still did not have a chasuble or stole, which are needed for the ceremony. “They are important,” says Vang, “But I’m financially struggling and they are costly.” Some ordinands borrow a chasuble and stole for the ceremony, but Vang was having trouble finding any his size. So he sent out an email with a sweetly humorous plea: “Please help! I need a chasuble and stole, but I am a short Hmong man: I am only 5′ 2”, and everyone’s stole and robes are too long for me!”Quickly, he received a response from the Rev. Beth Royalty, rector of St. Clement’s Episcopal Church in St. Paul. “Well, I’m a short white woman, and you can use one of my chasubles!”The stole? The Rev. Susan Moss: the very person who had introduced the first person from his community to the original rector of Holy Apostles in the first place, has gifted him with her original set of stoles from her own ordination.What’s next for Vang?“I think the sense is that typically, priests don’t go back to their home congregation right away,” says Wilson-Barnard. “There is still formation that needs to be done, and it makes it hard when you go back to your own community and they think of you as who you were before.”Vang will most immediately gain experience assisting at White Bear Lake, Minnesota, in a non-stipendiary curacy at St. John’s in the Wilderness Episcopal Church, working with the Rev. Mark Kelm, says Prior.In the long term, Vang feels very passionately called to missionary work in Asia. “I understand that there is a need at Holy Apostles and within the Hmong community,” says Vang, and he fully intends to help fill that need. “But my passion is missionary work. I don’t know why, but maybe because of my experience with the French Missionaries who brought us the good news.Vang remembers fondly three visits to Laos. “In villages I met small children that reminded me of my own life when I was a little boy back in Laos,” says Vang. “I love to do missionary work; I love to take the Gospel to those people in Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam in my future. I don’t know if that is possible; all I can do now is just keep praying and talking to people. I hope one day God will give me the energy, the power, the strength, and the wisdom to do the work.”What this means for Vang“If I could be able to describe or to put into words, I just want to thank everybody,” says Vang. “Thank all the generous and wonderful people that God has called to come into my life and walk with me in this challenging and joyful journey. I don’t know how to express it. It’s in my heart. It’s in my prayers. I don’t feel like it’s enough. Like I express it correctly. It’s a lot for me.”What this means for everyone“The Episcopal tradition really inspires Hmong Episcopalians,” says Vang, “because we felt like one family. We felt very supported and loved by the Episcopal Church as a whole. We never had that kind of love before when we were with the Roman Catholic Church, except for the French missionary priests who was with the missionary. That is a big blessing for us.”The way in which Holy Apostles welcomed the Hmong community, says Moss, is “an example of a church welcoming the stranger: that beautiful mandate that you see in the Old Testament. Welcoming the stranger because you were once the stranger, too.”“When we include the Hmong,” says Vergara, “we include everyone. When we gather, when we welcome and embrace all the marginalized people, we are embracing ourselves.“There are so many people involved,” continues Vergara. “It takes the whole Episcopal village to really educate and realize a Hmong priest. Of course, more than that it takes Toua to put himself on the line with all the uncertainties of being employed as a Hmong. Now that he is ordained, he is not just a Hmong priest for the Hmong community; he is now a priest of one holy catholic and apostolic church. It is important for the church to see that. While he represents this underprivileged, marginalized community, he should also be seen as a priest of the one church.”To learn more about why the Hmong are so marginalized in Asia and in the United States, and to read about their unusual experience as a cultural group without a nation; secret warriors for the United States in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam; then as refugees, then immigrants, go here.— Haddayr Copley-Woods is missioner for communications for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.

Morrison, canon for ecumenical and community relations in the Diocese of Arizona, as its new chair at a meeting last month.Morrison, a lawyer whose practice focuses on water and environmental law, succeeds Carol Anne Brown, who led the board since May 2013.“Richard is a bi-vocational priest, a lawyer, a teacher and an environmentalist,” said the Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, president and dean of CDSP. “His life and ministry exemplify one of the primary lessons we teach our students: that Christian leaders must be prepared to work toward the reign of God both within the church and the wider community.“CDSP has been blessed by a succession of excellent board chairs. I give thanks for Carol Anne Brown, whose leadership just ended, and look forward to working closely with Richard.”Morrison chairs the board of the Morrison Institute of Public Policy at Arizona State University, where he teaches water resources management. He has also served on the boards of the Claremont School of Theology and the former Seabury-Western Seminary.“I think our current board is the best board I have ever worked with,” Morrison said. “I am very excited by the broad range of competencies this board presents and our ability to inform management and staff about creative options coming from the world of finance and law and other fields.”Morrison, who has a master of arts degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary and a juris doctor from the University of Houston, said he is particularly eager to help CDSP develop its new low-residency programs that offer the master of divinity and the certificate in Anglican studies.“It’s a pivotal time for distance learning, and while all schools are working hard to accommodate trends in the marketplace that are going to require more reliance on distance learning, one of the reasons I am so glad to be serving at CDSP today is that Mark Richardson has done a good job of preparing his faculty for the more flexible and innovative styles of teaching that this is going to require,” he said.Morrison began his ordained ministry as a vocational deacon in 1997, working with refugees eligible to apply for asylum. “I represented them before the immigration courts as their pro bono lawyer and arranged for housing and clothing as necessary,” he says.He was ordained to the priesthood in 2003 and has served as rector of Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Flagstaff, interim rector at St. Matthew’s in Chandler and as an assisting priest at Church of the Epiphany in Tempe.A decorated Navy pilot, Morrison is a trustee of the Farm Foundation in Chicago and writes and speaks on ethics and environmental sustainability.

Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Alfonso Camiwet says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Smithfield, NC February 21, 2015 at 12:39 pm My Ministry unknowing to me is to study cancer first from labs research first on breast and ovary with Mary, the Virgin Mary. From there I began to study the research of the cell cycle that governs all tissue types of cells that divide. That study found me the discovery labs on p 53 protein the protein that is mutated in 50% of all sufferring forms of cancer disease regardless of tissue type. Thus p 53 protein science is the most important research in modern cancer labs.. And after studying it I asked Mary and Jesus for the cure. Rdioactive cysteine is th cure of cancer I sent wrod to all major cancer institutes and many churches including our Primate Bishop and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Then i did something else I studied radiation and cysteine in healthy cells and tissue discovering that the sunshine is the major source of virtamin D and that a vitamn called PLP or vitamin B 6 is the co enzyme used to allow cysteine synthesis. These two vitamins actually prevent many many cancers and are the most prophylactic form of cancer medicine. Anyway it reveals the cure of cancer in healthy tissue is also the best way to prevent it. Now it up to the Love of God and genius of medical research to end this dragon forever. Let us pray cancer is off the earth this Easter.

Flint, PhD says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY February 18, 2015 at 3:37 pm Lent is perfect time to reflect where we stand firmly, in case we fall in a situation with a hanging sword over our head as we saw in the picture, 21 Egyptian Christians kneeling down at the sea shore in Libya and waiting for Jesus to come and pick their souls up in Paradise, as it had happened to St. Stephen in 1st century. It is sad to know that there was no message publicly from our PB to console Christians at this time of trial. Our consolation comes from words of God as it is written: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me” (Matthew 5:11).Our heartfelt prayer remains for bereaved Christian families in Egypt to get strength from God and May their souls rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven! Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Featured Events February 21, 2015 at 12:08 am My parish’s Ash Wednesday service was predominantly filled with college age practicing Episcopalians. The worm will turn again someday folks. Be strong and wait on the LORD. February 16, 2015 at 7:30 pm This message would elucidate more about Ash Wednesday if it mentioned grief and repentance concerning sin, topics central to this holy day from the time of its inception.In the Bible we learn that placing ashes on oneself reflects grief and mourning which are often connected to personal awareness of sin and heartfelt turning from those acts of wrongdoing (please read Job 30:19; 42:6; Daniel 9:3-5; Jonah 3:6; and Matthew 11:21). The ashes from the ancient ritual of the heifer (Numbers 19) were used in purification rites. Because of Jesus who came to fulfill the Law (not to invalidate it, Matthew 5:17) we live in a better situation as taught by the book of Hebrews (9:13-14) which gladly affirms that if the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on defiled persons were effective for purifying them outwardly, how much more will the blood (i.e., sacrificial death) of Christ purify our consciences from sinful acts that lead to death so that we may worship and serve the living God!We are all mortal, frail, and beset with sin but this sober truth which we rightly admit is hardly a “negative” one. Because of Jesus’ death to effect genuine forgiveness and reconciliation we can admit and grieve for our sins, pray for forgiveness, receive God’s remedy through Christ and thus turn from what harms us (and others) to live in humility, gratitude, and true hope of participating in God’s loving work of redemption. This is Good News indeed!Permission granted to place this preceding message in every church bulletin. Posted Feb 10, 2015 Comments are closed.

Some accept the ashes to demonstrate their piety, like hypocrites; some accept it as a visible reminder of their own brokenness and need for reflection and redemption.Lent will be more interesting for me this year. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC February 17, 2015 at 3:21 pm Accepting that we are dust and will return to dust is a reminder of our humanity. That we are frail, imperfect and weak; we are sinners. But through His grace, mercy and pity; the human flesh can also rise to heights of service and perfection if only for more life to be enjoyed by many. Hence from misdeeds and error, we always repent and return to the Lord for forgiveness. Then rise with Him for clearer, cleaner, wiser acts of service celebrating life. Then as we go nearer to dust, we can proudly see and say, my Lord and my God.

The ABC and the Pope have already stepped to the plate, but what about our liberal Episcopal Church? What say you? Did the radical Islamic extremest behead Egyptian citizens or Egyptian Christians? Both statements would be correct, but in this case they were murdered because of their Christian Faith, not their national status. The ABC and Pope said Christians martyrs – what does our PB say?Episcopalians deserve to hear from their PB, their Bishops and their Clergy on this issue. Where do we stand? Whether you have noticed or not, it is time to take a stand on this and several other issues confronting Christians in the society. There is a group here in America, the Church needs to confront, The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, that keeps taking Christian children and teenagers religious liberties away from them through legal intimidation. Shouldn’t we be standing with our kids to protect them from this intimidation.Dr. Franklin Graham is addressing all these issues, others are addressing all these issues. It is time for us (I THINK) to address all these issues. I hope other Episcopalians will express their views. How much do we value the Gospel of God and the message that Jesus is the only way to God? For us Jesus has come and for the Jews, Jesus is coming. Compromising God is not a good position to take. In seminary, I met many survivors of the Holocaust and their stern warning NEVER AGAIN. Looks like again is upon us.

That word in English comes from an Old English word that means “to lengthen,” and it’s a reminder of the days getting longer as we move toward summer out of the dark of winter.But in a number of other languages, particularly Spanish and French, the word for “Lent” reflects “forty days,” “cuaresma.” Forty days of wandering in the desert, forty days of Jesus out in the desert.It’s also about a journey.  And it’s a journey that is about enlightenment if we’re willing to think about it that way.Lent is an ancient tradition of solidarity and preparation for those who look forward to Baptism at the Easter Vigil.  It has always been a time for prayer and study, fasting, self-denial, and alms-giving, sharing what we have with those who do not have.  Prayer is an opportunity to reflect on who walks with us in the desert, who brings light into the world. Study is an opportunity to do the same kinds of things looking at the history of our tradition, where have human beings found light and direction in their journey through this world.  Fasting and self-denial are an inward-reflection on what it is that keeps us in the dark, or what it is that keeps us directionless, or that keeps us overly self-focused.  And it becomes an invitation to turn outward and share what we have with those who have not.  To build solidarity among God’s people and the rest of the earth.One of the most memorable Ash Wednesdays I ever spent was in San Jose, Costa Rica, in a school for children. I was asked to place ashes on the foreheads of toddlers.  It was a provocative experience in the deepest sense, reminding very small children that they are mortal.That cross that comes on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday is a reminder of the cross that’s put there at Baptism.  You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ’s own forever.  The cross that comes at Ash Wednesday is a reminder that you are dust and to dust we shall return, that we share that dust with every other human being who has ever walked this planet, that we share that dust with the stars and the planets, that we share that dust with all that has been created.  We are made for relationship with creator and creation.Lent and cuaresma is a journey to walk toward that light.  May it be a blessed one this year.The Most Rev.

We are taking these allegations seriously and there will be a full and fair examination of the concerns that have been raised to be conducted expeditiously by an independent investigator.  To protect the integrity of that process, we will not be able to say more about the concerns at this time.I ask that you pray for all who are involved and who are impacted by this situation.I also ask that we all refrain from speculation, difficult though that may be. We all have a responsibility to protect the integrity of all the human beings involved and also the integrity of a fair and just process in this matter.Bishop Clay Matthews, Director of the Office of Pastoral Development, will be coordinating a team of women and men, lay and ordained, to offer pastoral care for all involved.  Look for additional information about the pastoral support team and how to contact them in due course.  Bishop Matthews is available should any member of staff find a need for immediate pastoral care. He is also available for remote staff.  Contact him at any time at [email protected]  Additionally, I encourage each one of you to do what you need to do to care for yourselves and each other.  Remember the benefits available through the Health Plan’s Employee Assistance Program.On Monday, December 14, I intend to meet with you all by video conference.  Canons Michael Hunn and Chuck Robertson will be present at the Church Center to begin conversations with various departments about their needs and concerns as we move forward in these initial days.

WCC, UN conference: joint statement on refugee crisis

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Curate Diocese of Nebraska [World Council of Churches] Following the WCC/UN high level conference on the refugee crisis in Europe, which took place at the Ecumenical Centre Geneva on 18-19 January, a statement has been issued entitled “Europe’s Response to the Refuge Crisis, From Origin to Transit, Reception and Refuge, A Call for Shared Responsibility and Coordinated Action”.The statement, issued jointly by the World Council of Churches; UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund; UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund; and UNHCR, the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, reads as follows:On 18-19 January 2016 representatives of governments, UN agencies and civil society organizations, including churches and faith-based organizations, met at a high-level conference on the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe, hosted by the World Council of Churches (WCC) in Geneva, Switzerland, and co-sponsored by UNICEF, UNFPA and UNHCR. The conference aimed to promote principled, human rights-based and coordinated responses to refugees and migrants in Europe and to the root causes of their displacement. The conference provided an opportunity for participating faith-based organizations to apply faith principles (especially the belief that every human being is created in the image and likeness of God) in putting at the centre of the responses the human dignity and rights of all those affected.In 2015, more than one million refugees and migrants arrived in Europe by land and sea. Arrivals include people fleeing from many other situations of danger and despair, especially in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. The refugee and migrant crisis has rapidly become a children’s crisis, as children currently account for one in three of all refugees and migrants arriving in Europe. All children, no matter where they are or where they come from, whether they are refugees or migrants, are entitled to care and protection of their dignity, rights and well-being.The conference focused on responses to the crises, predominantly in Europe but also in the wider context of the 60 million people displaced globally. It examined the entire trajectory of forced displacement, from origin through transit to destination, and acknowledged the challenges that European governments and societies are facing in meeting legal obligations under international refugee, humanitarian and human rights laws while at the same time addressing political, security and economic concerns.The conference participants call for stronger collective engagement by the international community in seeking political solutions to conflict, violence, inequality and exclusion that are root causes of the current unprecedented global crisis of forced displacement. In particular, we appeal to all those with capacity to help stop the fighting and to alleviate the intolerable suffering in Syria to put aside their political differences and to join in common action for peace now. Protection of women and girls from sexual and gender-based violence and exploitation, and their access to life-saving sexual and reproductive health services, are essential components of a humanitarian response to the crisis, and are critical investments in future recovery and resilience. In addition, countries neighbouring the conflicts from which the refugees are fleeing, and which carry a disproportionately heavy burden of hosting the majority of refugees, must be acknowledged and better supported.The conference participants concur that alleviating the suffering of people affected by displacement is a shared responsibility, not only in Europe but also elsewhere. It is vital that governments, civil society, international agencies and others work together in a consistent and coordinated manner to provide a safe and humane environment for refugees and migrants, and to meet the immediate needs of people escaping war, generalized violence and oppression – and over the longer term to facilitate social inclusion and integration. It is of urgent importance that safe and legal passage for refugees coming to Europe be expanded and facilitated. Closing national borders to refugees is not a solution because it only shifts the responsibility to the next country.The conference participants call for better coordination and cooperation of Europe’s response to the refugee and migrant crisis. Implementing, strengthening and improving the common EU asylum system is urgently needed. Strengthened coordination in the European response is required to meet the needs of refugees and migrants, including protection against sexual and gender-based violence, education for children and adolescents, and the specific health, nutrition and protection needs of children, adolescents and women, the elderly and people with disabilities. It is essential to uphold principles of international law in the context of the crisis. All people fleeing from conflict and persecution are entitled to seek protection under international refugee law. Access to a fair asylum process must not be limited on the grounds of nationality, ethnicity, religion, health status or any criterion other than need. Cooperation is also urgently required to oppose xenophobic, racist and Islamophobic statements and actions, and political exploitation of the crisis. And it is essential immediately to begin implementing measures to help refugees and migrants integrate into their new societies. In addition to considering the legal obligations and moral principles that require a compassionate and welcoming response to people in need, it is to be noted that the contributions made by refugees and migrants through their labour, skills and creative capacities can be of great value to their host communities.Civil society, including faith-based organizations, has a unique and substantial role in responding to humanitarian crises. Better coordination of their actions with those of governments and international agencies, as well as stronger inter-religious cooperation that brings in the voices and capabilities of other faiths, are essential to maximize efforts at ensuring the survival, rights and dignity of refugees and migrants.We call for these intentions to be translated into action, and for the voices and views of refugees and migrants to be heard and taken into account to the maximum extent possible. This will entail defining roles and responsibilities, sharing information and knowledge, resources and activities, building on each other’s comparative strengths and advantages, and holding each other to account. It will require concrete mechanisms for strategic planning, implementation and accountability, and a plan of action to set specific, measurable, achievable and time-bound goals. To this end, the conference participants call on the co-sponsoring organizations to work together to strengthen participation and contributions of faith-based organizations in responses to the refugee and migrant crisis at country and regional levels, building on existing initiatives already underway, and on a quarterly basis to review and share progress in addressing issues raised at this conference Ecumenical & Interreligious, Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit a Press Release Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Events Featured Jobs & Calls Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
