‘One church in Europe’

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA October 26, 2013 at 7:14 am An interesting idea, but are either of these jurisdictions actually growing? Rector Tampa, FL October 26, 2013 at 12:11 pm Perfectly stated ! October 31, 2013 at 6:51 pm What wonderful news! The overlapping Anglican jurisdictions in Europe are a source of confusion, especially to the numerous visitors to the Continent. Even a common directory, or computer listing someplace would be a help. When I’m on the Continent, I usually stick to the Convocation of American Churches, or the Church of England parishes. (When I’m really stuck, I go to a Roman Catholic church where, lamentably, I can’t receive Communion.) Keep up the momentum and the good work!Now, if only we could lure the Church of England’s Diocese of Europe into this partnership… October 23, 2013 at 9:02 pm I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in the world’s churches for unity! The Body of Christ cannot be separated. It is one; each part has a different function in the body, but they work together for the good of the whole. Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Rector Columbus, GA October 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm Go! Go! Go! Rector Collierville, TN November 5, 2013 at 1:22 pm I was privileged to work with Old Catholic churches, Convocation churches and the Bishop for the Armed Forces both in 1981-83 while living in Germany and 1992-94 while living in the Netherlands. There were some shared activities then, but I have been praying for this for a long time. I was invited to celebrate the Eucharist in German in Wurzburg in June 1994 for the Old Catholic congregation there. October 26, 2013 at 11:45 am People grow spiritually if they grow at all. Numbers don’t matter. All churches today are losing membership. No one really knows the reason except we live in a modern world of technology that enables people to communicate through technology, not always with one another face to face. Christ’s goal for the “church” is that all will become one as the Father and I are one. Every step towards unity wherever it happens and to whom is a step forward, not backward. That is my belief. October 24, 2013 at 12:11 pm This is true Walt. There are many independent catholic churches in the US claiming to be “Old Catholic” but who have no connection to Utrecht at all. Sadly, some of these groups are very much on the fringe theologically and are trying to claim legitimacy by claiming to be “Old Catholics.” Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI October 24, 2013 at 4:48 pm I lived in Germany 1960-63 and often attended Old Catholic services, met Bishop Steinwachs – a marvelous old apostle – and attended an Old Catholic retreat. In spirit and letter, both these communities seemed virtually identical, although they come out of different experiences, vis a vis the Papacy. I thought we were in full communion then? It’s wonderful to see the two developing closer ecclesiastical ties. We’ve been soul-mates for a long, long time. Comments (16) Rector Shreveport, LA October 27, 2013 at 5:27 pm I have been an Old Catholic Priest since 1977 and a Bishiop since 1979. I am presently pastoring a Lutheran Church in Canada and am looking to get involved with the Church in Europe. I am of Jewish parentage, ergo Jewish born, and would on behalf of the Church get preaching assignments throughout Europe preaching against the Nazi movement that is proliferating throughout Europe.

The Polish National Catholic Church is no longer a member of the Union of Utrecht, having left it precisely over the issue of its sister churches’ decisions to ordain women (and their general liberalization).

We, in The National Catholic Church of America, are part of the apostolic heritage of the late Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa, former Roman Catholic Ordinary of the Diocese of Botucatu, Brazil who broke with Rome in 1945 and began the establishment of national catholic churches.The NCCA has, from its inception, ordained men and women without the obligation of celibacy, married same sex and opposite sex couples, invited all baptized Christians (including those divorced and remarried) to receive the Body and Blood of Christ at our Eucharistic Table as well as encouraged individuals to make responsible moral decisions in the light of the gospel. We share the same statements of belief (The Apostles Creed and The Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed) share by most churches of apostolic derivation. TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI center_img [ooyala code=”93bWg5Zzqa4k_2BmrPimkACgjDMIB5hq” player_id=”d4a5625b85af485eb1fff640076c5be6″][Episcopal News Service] Old Catholics and Episcopalians in Europe have agreed to enter into deeper communion, seeking new ways to collaborate, preparing a common structure, and leading the way towards the ultimate goal of becoming one church in Europe.The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe passed two resolutions during its Oct. 17-20 convention in Rome following a charge delivered by Old Catholic Archbishop Joris Vercammen, in which he encouraged the churches to “overcome our borders” and become “agents of transformation.”One resolution commits the congregations of the convocation to seek to collaborate with their neighboring Old Catholic congregations by developing mutual ministries in worship, program and outreach, and by increasing knowledge and awareness of each other’s traditions.Another resolution supports the bishop-in-charge of the convocation and the archbishop of Utrecht “in their joint efforts to foster and develop our common life in Christ.”The Old Catholic Churches of the Union of Utrecht is the Episcopal Church’s longest-standing full communion partner, dating back to the Bonn Agreement of 1931.“The work of full communion is meant for fuller communion than we can envision,” Vercammen told the delegates Oct. 18 at the convocation’s convention. “I hope I am able to seduce you to the freedom for which the Holy Spirit wants to open our minds.”The Rt. Rev. Pierre Whalon, bishop-in-charge of the convocation, said that Vercammen had planted a seed “for us to pray about who we are together … [and to] determine that we no longer consider ourselves separate churches … We need to think outside ourselves.”Whalon told ENS that there is a strong desire to form “a communion of churches that can have a common witness in continental Europe” and that such a communion would bring the Old Catholic Church and the Episcopal Church “as close as possible to full visible unity without giving up local autonomy of individual jurisdictions.” The deepening of relationships between Old Catholics and Episcopalians, he said, might encourage other Anglican churches and full communion partners in Europe to work more intentionally towards unity.The Church of England’s Diocese in Europe also includes parishes throughout the continent. The Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain and the Lusitanian Church of Portugal are the two other Anglican jurisdictions in Europe.“On the very long term it could be the aim to have only one ecclesiastical structure that would be really both Old Catholic and Episcopal,” Vercammen said. “For the time being we have to organize the steps we have to take in order to realize this long term goal.”“I’m guessing the Old Catholics might help us to become new Episcopalians,” President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings said in her address to the convention, meeting at St. Paul’s Within-the-Walls, an Episcopal church in the center of Rome. She described Vercammen’s proposal as “a radical form of community, a new way to be church, the church we’re called to be.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, after hearing news about Vercammen’s appeal and the convocation’s response, told ENS that she is “deeply grateful for the growing awareness of the possibilities of full communion in Europe, and the increasing commitment to make it a greater reality.“Imagine the missional witness and possibility of a seamless Anglican-Episcopal-Old Catholic-Lutheran Christian community!” she added. “The strong and deepening relationship between Old Catholics and Episcopalians in Europe is the forerunner, which just might lead other parts of the Body of Christ into greater partnership.”Jefferts Schori was a guest of the Old Catholic Church in 2011 when she visited Utrecht and delivered the Quasimodo Lecture, an annual event that explores issues of faith in contemporary society.Vercammen, during his remarks to the convocation’s convention, quoted from that lecture, during which Jefferts Schori said that ecumenism “is basically housekeeping work – cleaning up the household, setting it in order, so that it can be a home … Ecumenical work begins in the baptismal vision of a restored body of Christ, but it cannot stop at any limited version of what God’s body includes. We are here to help the whole, and that’s the future I want to point toward in being catholic beyond borders.”Following that lecture, Vercammen told ENS that more creativity is needed in dealing with overlapping jurisdictions.“We need more concrete initiatives,” such as common searches for church leadership to serve across jurisdictions, he said, “and then we can really build a nucleus of church where Christians of all origins can come together. We have a unique opportunity and it would be a pity if we were not to use it.”The Episcopal Church entered into full communion with the Old Catholic Churches of the Union of Utrecht in 1934 on the basis of the Bonn Agreement three years earlier. The Old Catholic Church includes about 200,000 members in several national churches in Europe, located in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, France and Italy. They separated from the Roman Catholic Church because they could not accept the definition of papal infallibility presented by the first Vatican Council in 1870.The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe serves a culturally diverse demographic of Christians in 20 parishes and missions throughout Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.In addition to the Old Catholics, the Episcopal Church is in full communion with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar, India, the Moravian Church in North America and the Philippine Independent Church.Churches in full communion formally recognize that they share essential doctrines, including Baptism and Eucharist; agree to accept the service of each other’s clergy; and pledge to work together in evangelism and mission. The churches become interdependent while remaining autonomous.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.

New Jersey’s Episcopal bishops issue joint pastoral letter on COVID-19’s…

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Posted May 7, 2020 [Dioceses of Newark and New Jersey] The Rt. Rev. Carlye J. Hughes, bishop of Newark, and the Rt. Rev. William H. Stokes, bishop of New Jersey, have issued a joint pastoral letter addressing public policies that fail to adequately address the disparate impact the COVID-19 virus is having on black and brown people, immigrants and the imprisoned.“It is inarguable that much of the damage and destruction of the novel coronavirus is the result of a capricious force of nature beyond human control and culpability,” the bishops wrote in a joint pastoral letter issued May 7. “However, it must also be recognized and acknowledged that, as with previous national and health disasters, there is indisputable evidence that this disaster has exacted greater human costs and a higher death rate on black and brown persons in the United States than on the predominant white culture. …“This predictable pattern is the tragic result of deeply entrenched systemic and structural injustices, especially the injustice of systemic racism, that have plagued this nation since its inception. Ongoing, long-term, often deliberate policies in our nation and in the state of New Jersey targeting persons of color have resulted in huge racial inequalities and disparities across major areas: education, housing, economic opportunity, net wealth and income. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the effects of all of these.”The bishops go on to address how the evil of mass incarceration has been underscored by the spread of the virus:“New Jersey has among the highest incarceration rates in the nation and also among the highest levels of racial disparity of those incarcerated,” the bishops write. “Unjust sentencing requirements and unsafe conditions in our nation’s jails and prisons, including those in New Jersey, make incarcerated persons, as well as those who guard them or otherwise work in prisons, ‘sitting ducks’ for the COVID-19 virus.”To address this, Hughes and Stokes call for the following public actions:Stopping or severely curbing the arrest and incarceration rate of persons for low-level offenses;Releasing those in prison who are vulnerable to COVID-19 due to age or health conditions and who statistically represent a low risk of recidivism.“We urge the people of our two dioceses to contact our governor and state officials and urge them to support these life-saving steps,” the bishops write.The health risks of incarceration extend to undocumented immigrants, detained and at risk for deportation, and the letter calls for public policy shifts to address the situation. In particular, the bishops draw attention to changes made by the Trump administration to the so-called “public charge rule,” which allows the government to exclude immigrants it fears will place a “burden” on cash assistance programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).“We feel strongly that the ‘public charge rule,’ which the Supreme Court upheld on April 24, 2020, is both draconian and cruel and should not be implemented,” they write.“The coronavirus pandemic is a threat to human beings, but, as is so often the case with crises, it is an opportunity as well. This pandemic affords us a chance to discover our deeper humanity and invites us to live into Christ’s most urgent command: ‘Love one another’ (John 13:34).”Pastoral Letter in EnglishCarta pastoral en español Rector Martinsville, VA Featured Events Press Release Service Rector Shreveport, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Curate Diocese of Nebraska Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Knoxville, TN Submit a Press Release The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Belleville, IL Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Bath, NC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Washington, DC Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

New Zealand win the Dubai Sevens final against Samoa

first_imgWednesday Dec 9, 2009 New Zealand win the Dubai Sevens final against Samoa New Zealand got their IRB World Series Sevens campaign under way in positive fashion as they beat Samoa 24-12 in a gripping final on Saturday.The NZ Sevens side had a disappointing series last season following injuries and loss of form. This first outing back shows that theyre once again going to be a handful over the next few months.“I thought we might have been a bit undercooked,” New Zealand coach Gordon Tietjens said of the decision not to enter his side into any pre-Dubai warm-up tournaments.“But you put in the work and you reap the riches. The players have put everything into this win. What really pleased me was winning so well today in all three matches.”They beat Kenya 17-14 in a tense quarter final, then cruised past Fiji in the semi, beating them 19-0. In the final, they got off to a good start as they went 10-0 up after tries from Tomasi Cama and captain DJ Forbes.Samoa fought back though to get a 12-10 lead after tries scored by Reupena Levasa and Mikaele Pesamino early in the second half. Manawatu youngster Kurt Baker then scored a nice try, before Cama sealed the win with his second.“That’s sevens rugby. They bounced back but we had the winning mentality,” Tietjens said.The series now heads to George in South Africa for the second leg this coming weekend. The home side, champions last season, will probably be favourites, but New Zealand will hope to carry over some of their good form.“You’ve got to be out there and work really hard,” Tietjens said. “Starting well is a bonus because if you start slowly it’s a real struggle to get up. Consistency is about winning tournaments and also consistency of performance is about doing well.“You’re never going to win every tournament; it’s not going to happen. But you’ve got to be a real contender when it comes to the series.” Time: 07:32ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Already this year we have seen the Community Access Grants open by Disability Action. On its way is the capital element of the Modernisation Fund and the Big Lottery Fund’s capital programme both also likely to be for minor works and refurbishment.The extension of Awards for All to £10,000 is also a potential source of funds for minor works and refurbishment. Grants assist with the costs of refurbishing premises, improving facilities or access for people with disabilities bringing the property up to current health, safety and fire authority standards. The maximum rate paid is 85 percent.Application forms are now available for the 2006/07 Minor Works Scheme.

The Big Give launches Rohingya matched giving campaign in support of seven charities

first_imgThe Big Give launches Rohingya matched giving campaign in support of seven charities More than £230,000 has been raised so far for seven charities in the Big Give’s Rohingya matched giving campaign, which launched last Thursday (5 October).The Big Give has launched the emergency match fund to raise money for the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and Bangladesh. It is supporting the Rohingya crisis appeals of DEC, Care International UK, British Red Cross, CAFOD, Christian Aid, UNICEF UK and Medair UK, with every donation given doubled by a group of philanthropists until match funds run out.The Rohingya Crisis Appeal can be found on the Big Give’s site. So far, the majority has been raised for the DEC and Care International. Just over £110,000 has been donated towards DEC’s appeal, with another £64,000 for Care International’s.Alex Day, Director at the Big Give said:“We are deeply saddened by the events unfolding in Myanmar and Bangladesh. We are fortunate to work with generous philanthropists to enable us to respond quickly and double public donations to what has been described as one of the fastest movements of people in recent decades. Around half a million people are suffering and support from the public can help the charities we are working with to provide urgent assistance to those arriving without basic food, water, shelter, and often in a traumatised state. Thank you in advance to everyone involved and we urge you to give what you can to support those in desperate need.”Last week DEC announced that it had raised over £3m in 24 hours for its appeal to help people fleeing Myanmar.

Hog Producers Have Keen Interest in Weather

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Hog Producers Have Keen Interest in Weather Previous articleSenate Ends Farm Bill Debate with Final Vote Planned for MondayNext articleCattle Producers should Control Fly Populations Andy Eubank Hog Producers Have Keen Interest in Weather By Andy Eubank – Jun 6, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Hog production has returned to profitability but Purdue University Extension Economist Chris Hurt says delayed planting has many producers wondering if hog production costs will drop as much as some had anticipated. Hog prices have rallied and moderation in feed prices helped reduce costs of production – but as delayed planting has raised concerns about fewer planted acres and reduced yields – corn and soybean meal prices have trended to the upside. For the third quarter – hog prices are expected to average 67-dollars – with costs expected at about the same level. Hurt says corn and soybean meal prices are expected to drop sharply into the late summer and fall as markets make the transition to new crop supplies. He says that means costs will drop from about 67-dollars per live hundredweight this summer to closer to 60-dollars for the final quarter of the year. With hog prices expected to be near the 60-dollar level for the final quarter of 2013 and first quarter of 2014 – Hurt says breakeven conditions will continue.Hurt says prospects for the entire year of 2014 are beginning to come into focus – though the size of this summer’s crops can still have a strong influence on final outcomes. He says USDA has forecast 2014 hog prices in a range from 56 to 60-dollars per live hundredweight – which appears considerably lower than current lean-hog futures are suggesting. He says the primary difference is that USDA made its forecast in early May when low corn and meal prices were anticipated. The substantially higher feed costs – Hurt says – would be expected to keep the pork industry from expanding and result in hog prices more in line with current lean-hog futures prices. Hurt suggests keeping expansion plans on hold – awaiting better clarification of the size and prices for 2013 crops and the implications for hog production costs.If corn prices stay below six-dollars per bushel – Hurt says the pork industry would be able to survive another year of low-crop production. Higher corn prices would push the outlook back into losses – while Hurt says a more aggressive expansion would be expected with corn prices dropping below five-dollars.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Arson attack on radio host’s car marks escalation in intimidation campaign

first_imgNews Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso RSF_en to go further Burkina FasoAfrica Follow the news on Burkina Faso May 5, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today condemned a campaign of death threats against singer and radio host Karim Sama, which took a disturbing new turn with an arson attack on his car on 28 September in Ouagadougou. Also known as “SAM’S K Le Jah,” Sama hosts a successful programme on privately-owned Ouaga FM in which he often criticises President Blaise Compaoré. The programme is popular outside of Boukina Faso as well.“This campaign to intimidate a committed performer was already outrageous, but it has become much more alarming now that the fanatics threatening him have moved from words to actions,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is time the authorities took this seriously, and identified and punished those responsible for this disgraceful behaviour.”Sama was presenting his weekly “Roots Rock Reggae” programme on the evening of 28 September when the radio station’s guard came and told him his car was on fire. Sama rushed to the station’s car park and found the rear seat of the car already ablaze and the flames beginning to spread to the rest of the vehicle.Sama has been receiving threatening email messages since April. The first one, on 18 April, told him to stop saying “nonsense on radio Ouaga FM” and warned him he would die soon. Likening President Compaoré to a “divine blessing,” it called on Sama to stop criticising the president’s “development initiatives” in his programmes.Sama immediately reported the threatening email to the police in the hope that they could establish who sent it. But no action was taken. Although it said he should “not mention this message on the air on Ouaga FM,” Sama told the press and received the support of journalists’ organisations. The threatening messages continued until the arson attack, about which he also filed a complaint.
