Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Washington DC] Les épiscopaliens et d’autres croyants ont défilé sous une pluie froide ici le 10 mars dans le cadre de la manifestation et du rassemblement « Native Nations Rise », suivant un schéma traditionnel de prière suivie d’action.Michael Smith, l’Évêque du Dakota du Nord, a commencé par un service religieux de près de deux heures le 9 mars, veille de la marche, à la Cathédrale nationale de Washington, illustrant ce schéma. « Pour les croyants, œuvrer pour la justice englobe à la fois la prière et l’action. Nous prions puis nous agissons, puis nous prions encore et nous agissons, puis nous prions encore et nous agissons, jusqu’à ce que Dieu Créateur qui a créé tout ce qui existe, accomplisse ce pour quoi nous œuvrons », explique Michael Smith, membre de la Nation Potawatomi d’Oklahoma. « Ce soir nous prions, demain nous agissons ».Le lendemain, la révérende Phyllis Manoogian, diacre et missionnaire du Diocèse de Californie au Guatemala, portait un poncho orange vif pour se protéger de la pluie glaciale qui tombait alors que la marche s’écartait du quartier général de l’Army Corps of Engineers des États-Unis. Elle avait fait le voyage à Washington depuis le village rural proche d’Antigua où elle enseigne aux femmes autochtones et à leurs enfants, dit-elle, parce qu’être là avec la Nation Sioux de Standing Rock est la réponse à l’appel du mouvement de Jésus.« Je pense que l’Église épiscopale a été à la traîne sur de nombreuses questions sociales et je crois qu’il est important pour nous d’intensifier nos efforts et d’être des leaders et non pas des suiveurs », déclare-t-elle alors que les manifestants tournent le coin de la rue près du siège du FBI et continuent jusqu’à ce qu’ils s’arrêtent devant le nouvel hôtel Trump International. « Cela fait partie de l’éthique chrétienne de s’occuper des autres, d’être de bons intendants de la Terre et d’aimer notre prochain ».La marche et le rassemblement ont attiré des centaines de personnes d’Arizona, du Nouveau-Mexique, d’Illinois et de New York ainsi que des deux États du Dakota. Tandis que les manifestants amérindiens et leurs alliés marchaient dans le centre ville de Washington, l’entreprise Energy Transfer Partners était de nouveau au travail dans le Dakota du Nord. Confortée par une décision favorable du tribunal le 7 mars, l’entreprise prévoit de commencer à pomper du pétrole la semaine prochaine sur le dernier tronçon des 1 885 km de l’oléoduc de 76 cm de diamètre. Elle a récemment creusé ce tronçon sous la partie du lac Oahe du fleuve Missouri à 1 500 mètres  de la réserve de Standing Rock.Un large contingent épiscopal a rejoint la marche de Washington. Des laïcs, des prêtres et des séminaristes du Virginia Theological Seminary proche portaient des pancartes et scandaient des slogans proclamant qu’ils soutenaient Standing Rock et que les enfants ne peuvent pas boire de pétrole.Article complet en anglais.

Los primados de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Iglesia…

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Chula Vista, California] El domingo 16 de febrero, el obispo primado Michael Curry y el arzobispo Francisco Moreno, primados en representación de la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia Anglicana de México, respectivamente, firmaron un acuerdo bilateral que de hecho hace entrar a las dos iglesias en una relación recíproca.“Este es un día magnífico y puede que no cause revuelo en los medios de prensa, pero sienta la pauta de que [para] personas que viven juntas en América, personas que comparten una frontera común, personas que siguen el camino de Jesús —que siguen en esto a Jesús— no hay ninguna frontera que nos divida”, dijo Curry durante un período de reflexión en el oficio. “Dios creó la tierra; los seres humanos crearon la frontera. Y así, como dice el viejo himno, ‘Oeste y este en Cristo no hay, no hay norte o sur en él… en él los suyos por doquier encuentran comunión.’“Es esta comunión de amor que sigue las huellas de Jesús la que nos reúne en este día y en Jesucristo nuestra amistad se profundiza y perdurará. En Cristo no hay fronteras”.El acuerdo marca una transición en las relaciones entre las dos iglesias, que se remonta a 1875. En un momento, la Iglesia en México fue parte de la IX Provincia, que comprende las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal en América Latina y el Caribe. En 1984, la Iglesia Anglicana en México suscribió un acuerdo de pacto con la Iglesia Episcopal y se convirtió en una provincia autónoma de la Comunión Anglicana. El pacto, que incluía un estipendio mientras la Iglesia en México se esforzaba por alcanzar la independencia económica, caducó a fines de 2019.El obispo primado Michael Curry, a la derecha, y el arzobispo Francisco Moreno se abrazan luego de la firma de un acuerdo bilateral entre la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia Anglicana de México. El acuerdo bilateral reemplaza un pacto de 25 años entre las dos iglesias y las hace entablar una relación recíproca. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.“El pacto de 25 años llega a su fin, pero la amistad continúa, es firme”, dijo Moreno en una entrevista con ENS. “Esta es una nueva era en la Provincia de México porque estamos iniciando un nuevo capítulo en nuestro crecimiento, como cultura, como nuestra propia idiosincrasia en nuestro propio país. Este [acuerdo] nos beneficia en gran medida porque nos ayuda a madurar en nuestra fe, y por mucho tiempo, hemos sido amigos allende la frontera. La Iglesia ahora mismo está profundamente comprometida con su autonomía. Está buscando medios de mantenerse y está buscando formas de continuar programas con sus propios recursos”.La firma del acuerdo bilateral tuvo lugar durante una eucaristía especial que se celebró por la tarde en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s] en Chula Vista, una ciudad al sur de San Diego y ligeramente al norte de Tijuana y de la frontera entre EE.UU. y México. El lugar se escogió deliberadamente para llamar la atención sobre la presente crisis migratoria que se desarrolla en la frontera. El preámbulo del acuerdo reconoce que, pese a las dificultades políticas que enfrentan Estados Unidos y México, las dos iglesias  son llamadas a “compartir un ministerio de oración y colaboración mediante los dones y talentos que tenemos para ayudarnos en el crecimiento mutuo en el que hacemos patente el reino con nuestras acciones de justicia, paz y amor a través del servicio, la educación y la expansión del ministerio”.A lo largo de la frontera entre EE.UU. y México, los episcopales y anglicanos proporcionan ayuda humanitaria a migrantes y solicitantes de asilo, brindándoles albergue, alimentos, atención sanitaria, asesoría legal y consejo pastoral. En los últimos dos años, en la medida en que migrantes y solicitantes de asilo han seguido llegando a la frontera, las dos iglesias han compartido recursos e información de manera creciente.“Nuestras dos iglesias están vinculadas por una historia común. Compartimos una frontera. Básicamente vivimos en el mismo suelo. La frontera fue trazada por el hombre, no por Dios. Y en consecuencia, si bien somos dos pueblos, en verdad todos somos americanos, y  por tanto somos un pueblo en común”, dijo Curry durante una entrevista con ENS en el atrio de San Juan. “Es importante, creo yo, para los episcopales y para otros aquí en Estados Unidos, saber que, cualesquiera que sean las diferencias o problemas que nuestros gobierno[s] puedan tener, en Cristo no hay este ni oeste, que en él no hay norte ni sur.“Y por tanto, nos damos las manos con nuestros hermanos y hermanas, nuestros amigos en Cristo, para realizar una labor de interés humanitario, para realizar una labor que ayude a corregir los errores hasta donde seamos capaces de hacerlo, nos damos las manos para seguir en el camino, en las enseñanzas de Jesús, porque sus enseñanzas y su camino pueden sobreponerse a las divisiones de la gente. Y si podemos hacer de eso un modelo, entonces tal vez nuestros gobiernos puedan, y ese es un mensaje que nuestro pueblo necesita y, confío que el pueblo de México también”.Aunque simbólicos en gran medida, la eucaristía y la ceremonia de la firma del acuerdo hablan del actual compromiso de las dos iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana de un ministerio compartido, de luchar por la justicia y de reflejar la presencia de Dios en el mundo, dijo la Rda. Glenda McQueen, funcionaria encargada de la Iglesia Episcopal para América Latina y el Caribe.“El acuerdo bilateral expresa nuestro deseo de estar juntos  según damos testimonio en el mundo. Las fronteras no nos dividen; las fronteras no nos separan; los muros no nos separan. El compromiso cristiano trasciende eso, y los cristianos han encontrado formas a través de la historia para responder al llamado de la justicia, el llamado a colaborar con los seres humanos y caminar con ellos en las diferentes etapas de sus vidas”, dijo McQueen en una entrevista con ENS. “Tal como dice el acuerdo en el preámbulo, ‘Aunque estos son tiempos de dificultades y de conflicto entre Estados Unidos y México, eso no detiene a la Iglesia’. Por el contrario, este es un momento en que la Iglesia es llamada a trabajar y a ser la Iglesia”.La obispa de San Diego Susan Snook le da la bienvenida a los visitantes en la eucaristía del 16 de febrero que sella la firma del acuerdo bilateral entra la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia Anglicana de México. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Un comité bilateral de 16 miembros, con 10 representantes de la Iglesia Anglicana de México y seis de la Iglesia Episcopal redactaron el acuerdo bilateral, que define la manera en que las dos iglesias compartirán recursos y mantendrán las relaciones existentes y crearán otras nuevas.“Es fácil pensar solo en términos de nosotros mismos y meternos en nuestra pequeña pecera, pero el hecho es que somos parte de lo que posiblemente es el tercer grupo [confesional] de cristianos en todo el mundo, la Comunión Anglicana”, dijo el Rdo. Charles Robertson, canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Este verano veremos a los obispos de todas las iglesias reunirse por invitación del arzobispo de Cantórbery para la Conferencia de Lambeth. Esto sólo sucede aproximadamente una vez cada década, y es un recordatorio para todas nuestras iglesias, a través de nuestros obispos, de que no estamos solos. … Hacemos juntos lo que sea necesario para promover la buena obra del Evangelio.”Junto con Moreno, el Rdo. Efrén Velázquez Gutiérrez, secretario provincial de la Iglesia Anglicana de México, y el obispo de México Occidental, Ricardo Gómez Osnaya representaron a la Iglesia Anglicana de México.Junto con Curry, Robertson y McQueen; el Rdo. David Copley, director de asociaciones globales y de personal en misión de la Iglesia; la obispa de San Diego, Susan Snook; la obispa de Arizona, Jennifer A.

Photo by Porter BurnsIt’s not often a team trailing by seven entering the fourth quarter manages to win by eight. The TCU women’s basketball team did just that Wednesday, defeating Texas Tech 78-70 to snap a three-game conference losing streak. The Horned Frogs fell behind 7-6 with 5:47 left in the first quarter and did not regain the lead until a layup by Adeola Akomolafe with 4:07 left in the contest put them up 64-63.Akomolafe’s layup was part of a 13-0 TCU run in the middle of the fourth quarter that ultimately led to their eight-point victory.Akomolafe’s basket in the middle of the fourth quarter gave the Horned Frogs a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Photo by Porter BurnsThe team outscored the Lady Raiders 31-16 in the final period. Eight of their 31 points came from offensive rebounds, second chance points that highlighted their energy and determination down the stretch. “We wanted it really bad, we needed this win a lot,” said junior Kianna Ray. “Just continuing to instill that effort into each other and that energy. When we have energy, we’re going to do some damage.”Texas Tech pushed their lead to eight in the second quarter and ten in the third, but they were unable to put away the resilient TCU team.“You have to be that [resilient] in this league no matter who your playing against,” said head coach Raegan Pebley. “Tonight’s scores are a great indicator of that.”The team was led by Ray and senior Amy Okonkwo, who combined for 30 second-half points.Senior Jordan Moore finished with 10 points and 8 rebounds. Photo by Porter Burns“I love that Amy and Kianna just stayed confident in their scoring,” Pebley said. Ray finished with a career-high 24 points and five steals, including 11 points in the fourth quarter. The Austin, Texas, native started the game with just one make on her first five attempts but didn’t stop shooting, a testament to her resiliency and confidence as a scorer.“My teammates tell me to keep shooting and they keep finding me but I know I have to just keep shooting,” she said. “I’m not going to make any shots if I don’t shoot at all.”Okonkwo finished with 16 points, pushing her over 1000 for her career at TCU. She becomes the 19th player in program history to reach that mark and joins fellow senior Jordan Moore, who reached the milestone in November. Along with the offense of Ray and Okonkwo, the team’s aggressive defense style paved the way for the fourth quarter comeback. They forced the Lady Raiders into eight fourth-quarter turnovers while only committing two themselves, a recipe for erasing any deficit. The team also limited the potent ability of Texas Tech’s perimeter players, holding them to a 7-for-26 mark from beyond the arc.The team trailed by as much as 10 before winning by eight thanks to a dominant fourth quarter. Photo by Porter Burns“I think one of the things we did tonight is we forced Tech away from what they normally do and that is so much of their perimeter play,” Pebley said. The team will look to build upon the win and their fourth quarter showing when they travel to Austin to play Texas this Saturday. Tip off is set for 1 p.m. Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/last_img read more

I kept saying, ‘We’ve got to find her and get her here.’ Finally, we did.”Sanford said Jackson’s performance Monday night was outstanding. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “Vintage Shelia Jackson.”That’s what those who are familiar with the talent of Shelia Jackson said.“Incredible” is what those who were seeing her for the first time had to say about her performance at Summer Monday Nights at First Baptist Church in Wetumpka Monday. Jackson’s performance included spirituals, old-time hymns and patriotic music. Before she sang the last strains of “God Bless America,” the audience was on its feet in appreciation of the talent they said God has so richly blessed her with.Jackson also shared her faith and her personal belief in her Lord and Savior.“I’m always glad to be in the House of the Lord,” she said. “I have the blessed assurance that Jesus is mine.” Print Article “People of all ages were in awe of her talent,” Sanford said. “She drew everyone into her spirituals and hymns. She shared Jesus with us, and we worshiped the way the Lord wants us to worship. When she brought the children up to sing with her, that was so inspiring. We just thank Shelia and her friends for sharing their talents with us, and we certainly want to have her back.”Janet Motes, director of the Colley Senior Complex, said the group that went to Wetumpka from the complex found Jackson’s performance “absolutely moving.”“The patriotic medley was so fitting and was a time for all of us to reflect on how great our country is,” Motes said. “Shelia was fantastic and it was an honor for us to be there. After the performance people waited in line to congratulate her, Henry and Larry on a spectacular performance.”The Summer Monday Nights are a way that First Baptist Church of Wetumpka brings its membership together during the summer months.To date, other featured guests have been Siran Stacy, former University of Alabama football player, and Jay Jacobs, Auburn University director of athletics.

Page said that the successful Promise program at UFAS was in keeping with the traditions and priorities of UMF.“Dr. Serna shares our commitment to measuring our progress in terms of student and state success,” Page said in a prepared statement. “The Board and I were also impressed by many of the initiatives achieved under Edward’s leadership in Arkansas, noting how well aligned his accomplishments are with the strategic priorities that will guide and expedite educational reform in Maine over the next five years.”A graduate of Winthrop University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Serna also has Masters in Management Information Systems through Auburn University and Science in Industrial Management through Clemson University.

He said that he was honored and humbled for the opportunity and that his family was excited to move to the area. While he was aware of the school’s 155-year history, Serna said, he hadn’t been able to truly appreciate it until he was able to visit for two days earlier this year.“This is the kind of community we want to raise our girls at,” Serna said. “This is the kind of community where we can make an impact.”He pointed to challenges facing UMF and other universities, including questions of enrollment, funding and the perceived value of higher education. One of his priorities, Serna said, was to increase the access of UMF to new markets of students, improving the diversity of the student population. He said he was interested in meeting with staff about both strengths and weaknesses of the university in the coming months.Serna was also welcomed by the Search Committee Chair, Trustee David MacMahon, who said that the committee had been drawn to Serna as a candidate due to his ability to create relationships, collaborate with different stakeholders and “build consensus around a vision” at his previous positions. Serna was one of four finalists for the UMF position.Page also thanked Brown, who could not attend Tuesday’s event, for his work over the past year.“A valued colleague and academic leader, we are grateful for Dr. Brown’s service to the institution and its students,” Page said in a statement.last_img read more
