En Sudáfrica abundan los elogios sobre su contribución a la paz y a la concordia en el país africano. Varios noticieros han dicho que fue “el hombre más prominente del siglo XX”. Miami no ha sido la excepción aunque también se ha recordado su visita a Cuba en los años 70 y sus palabras de elogio a Fidel Castro. Su velorio tuvo lugar en un moderno estadio con un gran oficio inter-religioso. Por lo menos 53 jefes de estado participaron de las exequias. Mandela pertenecía a la Iglesia Metodista. Como era de esperarse en Venezuela ganó el oficialismo en las recientes elecciones municipales superando a la oposición en el total de votos emitidos y en la totalidad de alcaldías obtenidas. La oposición ganó los centros urbanos de mayor población como Caracas y Maracaibo.  El ex embajador de Venezuela ante las Naciones Unidas, Diego Arria, dijo que el resultado de las elecciones del domingo debe obligar a la oposición a reflexionar seriamente sobre cuál debe ser ahora el camino a seguir “para luchar contra un régimen empecinado en instaurar un régimen castro-comunista en Venezuela”. La oposición informó que el gobierno montó una gran maquinaria propagandística y que el gobernante Nicolás Maduro amenazó a la población.Por cuarta vez, el Comité Permanente de la diócesis de Puerto Rico ha suspendido la elección de su próximo obispo diocesano que estaba fijada para el 7 de diciembre. Sin dar mayores explicaciones, la declaración del Comité Permanente dice: “ésta ha sido una decisión extremadamente difícil pero que consideramos necesaria para el bienestar de la diócesis ahora y en el futuro”.  También añade: “Debemos abrir un espacio de reflexión y oración para el fortalecimiento de nuestra diócesis. Juntos podemos sanar las heridas que este proceso ha generado entre nuestros hermanos y hermanas”. En entrevista con el noticiero Rapidísimas el obispo saliente, David Álvarez, dijo desde su nueva casa en Ocala, Florida: “Para mí ha sido una decepción que gente que yo coloqué en posiciones de responsabilidad o ganancias materiales hayan creado desconfianza en muchos miembros del clero y el laicado”. Añadió que “oro para que Dios dirija las mentes y corazones  de todos”. La misma reunión nombró al obispo puertorriqueño jubilado Wilfrido Ramos Orench como obispo provisional.Las oficinas nacionales de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York han anunciado que ocho oficiales han sido designados para ocuparse de su ministerio nacional e internacional. A juzgar por la fotografía divulgada por el departamento de prensa todos los nuevos oficiales son jóvenes y aparentemente novatos en el trabajo de la iglesia. De los ocho nombrados siete son mujeres y dos ordenados (un hombre y una mujer). Sólo uno pertenece a una minoría étnica. Esta es la primera vez que tantos oficiales son nombrados al mismo tiempo. Varios de ellos trabajarán en diferentes partes del país siguiendo el nuevo lineamiento de descentralización en la misión. El edificio del Centro Episcopal, oficina nacional e internacional de la Iglesia Episcopal, está localizado en la segunda avenida de Manhattan a una cuadra al oeste del imponente edificio de las Naciones Unidas. Después de un receso de poco más de un año el grupo los Guías Espirituales del Exilio, formado por pastores en el área de Miami, se ha vuelto a reunir con el fin de dar acompañamiento a los que lo necesiten. El grupo tuvo “un descanso” de un año por el fallecimiento de varios de sus líderes en los últimos años entre los que se encuentran el obispo Agustín Román, Rolando Espinoza, Max Salvador, Manuel Salabarría, Francisco Villaverde, Luis Pérez, Francisco Santana, Ovidio Amaro, Anselmo Carral y Emilio Vallina. En la reunión celebrada la semana pasada en un restaurant se hicieron planes preliminares para reanudar las reuniones mensuales. En esta ocasión el grupo tuvo la visita del pastor bautista Mario Lleonart y su esposa Yoaxis, miembros del Movimiento Cristiano Liberación, que trabajan en el poblado de Taguayabón, Villa Clara, y que regresarán Cuba en enero. La próxima reunión de los Guías será en el Salón Varela de la Ermita de la Caridad el 7 de enero a las 10 am.Hay regocijo en la comunidad cristiana mundial por la decisión de la revista Time de escoger al papa Francisco como el ‘Personaje del Año’ por considerar que el nuevo líder de más de más de mil millones de fieles ha modificado notablemente la imagen pública de la Iglesia Católica Romana en muy poco tiempo.

Raymond Banzouzi who was sent by the Diocese of Kinshasa in the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo to “establish the church in that part of the world and spread the gospel to the west of the country and beyond.”With a total area of about 342, 000 square kilometers, the Republic of Congo would prove to be hard to penetrate especially in the southern parts where Anglicanism had not even been heard off. But through their determination and resilience, the men sent by the Diocese of Kinshasa, one of the nine dioceses of the Anglican Province of Congo, were able to sow the first seeds of Anglicanism in the area.The men built on the vision of an ardent evangelist from Uganda who introduced the Anglican Church in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Canon Apolo Kivebulaya, that the Anglican Church “reaches all parts of the country from east to west and beyond the country.”Currently, Congo Brazzaville is under the leadership of the Diocese of Kinshasa and last December its Diocesan Committee, under the presidency of Archbishop Isingoma Kawa, appointed the Rt. Rev. Molanga Botola as missionary bishop to Congo Brazzaville with the main mission of “preparing a new diocese of Congo Brazzaville.”Botola emphasizes: “It is for this reason that the church here has put evangelization as a top priority. In fact it is the priority of priorities. The department of evangelisation organizes massive campaigns of evangelisation throughout all the parishes. Earlier this year we had a huge evangelisation campaign for deliverance in Kintele village situated about 45 kilometers from Brazzaville-City.”He added, “The results were positive because many people decided to come to Jesus Christ that day. Our vision is to create a community of engaged Christians to follow and to serve Jesus Christ.”The Church in Congo Brazzaville has the challenge of inadequate land on which to build more churches as well as start new developmental projects to benefit the community. “We also have the priority of purchasing plots for the church throughout the country for projects,” he said. “We want to have a self-reliant community with the objective of fighting against poverty among our people.”Any new undertaking requires trained personnel to carry out various tasks. Therefore, the Church in Congo Brazzaville is also concentrating on training clergy and lay people through various seminars and workshops.“Currently, we have conducted training on the preaching of the Gospel organized by Langham Preaching,” said the missionary bishop. “At the end of 2013, we held a seminar on the leadership in the church, which is in line with our mission of contributing to the growth of the church here so that it can one day become a diocese.”For a relatively young church such as the one in Congo Brazzaville, the contribution of youth to its growth is important. The church there has a specific department to deal with youth and Sunday school children.“Our plan is to make steadfast the faith of young people and children in spiritual engagement in order to contribute to the challenge of the salvation of souls in Jesus Christ,” said Botola. “Young people also need to be active and self-reliant so we have activities in such as conferences on HIV/AIDS and also participation in choir activities.”Despite the many challenges that the church has faced in this region, it has continued to grow from strength to strength and it’s worth noting the contributions and support from various Anglican agencies around the world including the Anglican Communion Office and the Mothers’ Union.

Rev. Wilfrido Ramos Orench was installed as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Puerto Rico on March 28. Photo: Diocese of Puerto Rico[Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. Wilfrido Ramos Orench was installed as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Puerto Rico on March 28 at the Universidad Polytécnica de Puerto Rico in Hato Rey. He is the seventh bishop of Puerto Rico.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori presided at the three-hour installation service; Bishop José Antonio Ramos Orench, retired bishop of the Episcopal Church of Costa Rica and the provisional bishop’s brother, preached.Province IX bishops in attendance included Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque; Honduras Bishop Lloyd Allen; Venezuela Bishop Orlando Guerrero; Dominican Republic Bishop Julio Holguin; Bishop Luis Fernando Ruiz, assisting bishop in the Dominican Republic; and Bishop Victor Scantlebury, the provisional bishop of Central Ecuador. Pastor Angel Luis Rivera of the Puerto Rican Council of Churches, Pastor Enrique Mercado of the Caribbean Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, and the Rev. Fray Luis Orench of the Roman Catholic Church and the Order of Friars Minor also attended.Ramos replaces Bishop David Alvarez, who served as the diocesan bishop in the Diocese of Puerto Rico since 1989.During the installation, Ramos received a pectoral cross from Yadira Torres, president of the diocese’s Standing Committee. The cross, used by Bishop James Van Buren in 1901, has been handed to all diocesan bishops, Torres said.“I want to thank everyone for your support and your prayers. Let us together write a new page in the history of our diocese,” said Ramos during the installation.The diocese’s Standing Committee postponed and later canceled an election to replace Alvarez, who reached retirement age on Sept. 7, 2013.Charges were made against Alvarez in August and September of 2013.An accord regarding certain alleged violations of the disciplinary canons was reached between the presiding bishop and Alvarez; as a result of the agreed-upon accord, he is suspended from all episcopal duties until Oct. 31, 2014, said Bishop Clay Matthews, the Episcopal Church’s bishop for pastoral development, in a statement issued by the Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs.Alvarez resigned on the mandatory retirement date of Nov. 1, 2013.The accord with Alvarez says “alleged” because there were three complaints, one of which could not be refuted. Alvarez failed to implement Title IV, the ecclesiastical disciplinary canon adopted in 2009, to be put in affect in 2011, said Matthews, in a telephone call with ENS.Alvarez disputed the other two charges, but rather than extend the investigation process, the presiding bishop and Alvarez settled on an accord, which was not disputed, said Matthews, adding that the allegations are not public per the confidentiality requirements of Title IV.“In effect he’s suspended from all Episcopal ministries from Nov. 1, 2013, to Oct. 31, 2014,” said Matthews, adding that the accord is not based on something that has to do with “immorality.”In the meantime, the diocese in convention (and in consultation with the presiding bishop’s office) elected Ramos as the bishop provisional, “until such time as they are ready to have an election. And we’re assuming that may be three years from now,” said Matthews, adding that there is some disagreement in the diocese regarding whether an election should be held now, or whether the diocese should wait.Ramos, who is from Yauco, a city in southwestern Puerto Rico, served as bishop suffragan in the Diocese of Connecticut from 2000-06. Also, he previously served as a provisional bishop in the Diocese of Central Ecuador. He most recently served as the Episcopal Church’s global partnerships officer for Province IX.

Mark Richardson, CDSP’s president and dean. “She brings a probing, analytic intellect and collaborative spirit to her work. I am delighted that she will be guiding the planning and implementation of our extended learning initiatives.”Snow, who holds a Ph.D. in religion from Columbia University, was previously deputy director of Progressive Christians Uniting in Los Angeles. She said she is excited by the opportunity both to develop CDSP’s distance learning offerings and online pedagogy, and to teach in a seminary classroom.“Being extended learning director will be really interesting because I love the challenge of both identifying people’s needs and then finding the people who can fill them,” Snow said. “I can continually meet people and say ‘Oh that sounds really interesting. I bet we can make a great course out of that.’“For the practical theology part, I love teaching and being able to teach in a faith-based institution is very exciting to me,” she added. “I am looking forward to teaching people who are really committed to their own faith journeys, and to creating an environment in which people’s discernment is respected and is part of the classroom context.”Snow will arrive at CDSP as the seminary is reshaping its extended learning program, currently known as the Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership (CALL). While the program’s mission—“to bring the broadest possible Anglican theological education to the widest possible audience using the best educational technology available”—will not change, its offerings and approach to online education will.“I wanted to develop a better pedagogy for the people teaching the course so they have all of the resources availability to create really exciting courses,” Snow said. “People who are really good teachers in person can become really good teachers online, but it’s not the same.”Richardson said Snow’s arrival is well timed. “It is commonly understood that our church and our bishops are in a dynamic phase regarding how they will support needs for theological education to serve the future of the church” he said. “CALL is very well positioned to offer creative options to enhance the classic approaches taken to theological education.”Snow, who begins work in June, is married to the Rev.

Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)In my years of ministry, I have personally seen and been blessed by countless LGBTQ sisters, brothers and siblings. Dear friends, the church has in like manner been blessed by you. Together with many others you are faithful followers of Jesus of Nazareth and his way of love. You have helped the church to be truly catholic, universal, a house of prayer for all people. You have helped the church to truly be a reflection of the beloved community of God. You have helped the church to authentically be a branch of the Jesus movement in our time.Your ministries to and with this church are innumerable. I could speak of how you often lead our vestries, and other leadership bodies in the church. I could speak of how many of you organize our liturgies of worship, lift our voices in song, manage church funds, teach and form our children as followers of Jesus, lead congregations, ministries and dioceses. But through it all and above it all, you faithfully follow Jesus and his way of love. And in so doing you help the church, not to build a bigger church for church’s sake, but to build a better world for God’s sake.During June, Americans and people around the world observe Pride. Today, as we mourn the 49 people who were murdered at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando three years ago, I am mindful that Pride is both a celebration and a testament to sorrow and struggle that has not yet ended. Especially this month, I offer special thanks to God for the strength of the LGBTQ community and for all that you share with your spouses, partners and children, with your faith communities, and indeed with our entire nation.

Most churches in rural Canterbury’s flood zone have fared well in the weekend’s deluge, although to date no flood impact reports have come in from Te Pīhopatanga o Te Waipounamu.Archdeacon of Mid-Canterbury the Ven. Joan Clark reports that while Anglican church buildings in the district look to be undamaged, farming parishioners at Rakaia, Methven, Mayfield-Mount Somers, Hinds and Ashburton parishes will now face hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage to farm infrastructure and winter baleage, as well as lost income from milk dumped due to road closures.Read the entire article here.

Yes, retailers exploit Christmas, but their decorations still evoke religious spirit

first_imgOther religious symbolsChristmas symbols are but one type of religious symbol. Would similar effects occur for other religions if matching religious symbols were observed? Our findings suggest they would.In another of our experiments, we asked participants to unscramble sentences containing generic religious phrases or non-religious phrases.Irrespective of their religious background, participants who unscrambled the generic religious phrases were less harsh in how they judged poor service than those who unscrambled the non-religious phrases.

Not necessarily, according to research by myself, Jimmy Wong from the Singapore University of Social Sciences and Riza Casidy from Deakin University.We have found that seeing Christmas symbols – even a secular one – can evoke religious values in service contexts. Customers who had a Christian upbringing become more forgiving of poor service they personally receive but also more judgemental of any poor service they observe being meted out to vulnerable others.The religious spirit of ChristmasOur research adds to a small but growing body of research on how Christmas affects attitudes and behaviour. Previous research has suggested that mere exposure to the word “Christmas” can evoke charitable behaviour, that Christmas displays improve the mood of those who celebrate Christmas, and that displaying outdoor Christmas decorations can make a household appear more welcoming.Our results reinforce these findings. They show the strength of Christmas’s religious roots despite commercial and secular interest in de-emphasising the connection to Christianity.For people brought up in a household where Christmas was primarily a religious celebration, encountering a Christmas symbol reminds them of religious meanings and values.This effect did not depend on them still being a Christian. This shows the associations that children in Christian households develop between Christmas and religion remain potent long after childhood.A double-edged swordAcross seven experiments, we presented more than 1,500 participants with scenarios describing various types of poor service.Some scenarios described poor service that was personally experienced. Others described poor service directed towards someone else.Accompanying these scenarios were various Christmas symbols. In one experiment, we had participants listen to Christmas carols or nursery rhymes. In other experiments, participants were shown images of where the poor service took place. Included in the background of some of these images was a Christmas tree.We found that the mere presence of these Christmas symbols was enough for people with a Christian upbringing to judge the poor service less harshly, become less likely to warn others about it, and be less likely to switch to another business.In our research, people with a Christian upbringing also became more concerned about the welfare of others after seeing a Christmas symbol. In particular, they more critically judged poor service involving someone they regarded as vulnerable (an older person, for example). They were also more likely to warn others about that poor service and to switch to another business.Thus Christmas symbols represent a double-edged sword for retailers. Christmas 2018By Joshua Newton, Deakin UniversityChristmas trees in the aisles. Baubles hanging from the ceiling. Carols playing on the in-store speakers. Tinsel around the cash register.Shops put a lot of effort into Christmas decorations. It’s in their interest to associate themselves with the celebration, and to encourage shoppers to think spending up big is part and parcel of its enjoyment.Is this overt commercialisation of Christmas drowning out its true spirit?

These findings point to some interesting conclusions.Although stores may try to co-opt Christmas symbolism for commercial gain, it seems these symbols can not be completely disconnected from associations established by Christianity.Sometimes, such as the negative responses that occur after seeing a vulnerable person experiencing poor service, they can lead to outcomes where the true spirit of Christmas really does undercut a firm’s self-interest.

Young lock Eben Etzebeth smashes Bismarck Du Plessis to the floor

first_imgFriday Aug 3, 2012 Young lock Eben Etzebeth smashes Bismarck Du Plessis to the floor If you didn’t know it already, young Eben Etzebeth has arrived, in a big way. The recently capped Springbok lock put down a marker early on against the Sharks in the Super Rugby semi final, smashing legendary hooker Bismarck Du Plessis to the floor. You may have seen what happened but with many requests to get this posted, and after a busy week and some much needed time off, we’ve now added this to the RD archive of Big Hits.Sharks hooker Du Plessis, notorious as a hard man himself, was put on his backside by the young Etzebeth, a player that many are already touting to be the next great Springbok lock.With Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha both now out of the picture, Etzebeth has stepped up and while he’s still just 20 years old, has shown that he can throw his 6ft8, 120kg weight around.There are many stories about his family, namely his father and uncles, being hard men of the Cape.Tough as nails uncles Cliffie and Skattie both had that reputation, and when current teammate Andries Bekker’s father – former Springbok Hennie – spotted big Eben playing in the backline for a second team in high school, he enquired as to who the speedy youngster was.Upon hearing he was an Etzebeth, he immediately took notice.A late bloomer, playing wing and center up until the second last year of high school, Etzebeth has since become an imposing physical figure that has put a lot of hard work into his impressive frame.“He does have an amazingly proportioned physique,” coach John Dobson told SA Rugby magazine. “In fact, his biceps are something of a talking point around him. They’re massive and when we have fines meetings we make him show them off as a party trick. He is just ridiculously strong.“Eben is not as dirty as some locks who fulfil the role he does but he is also no angel. Let’s put it this way, I wouldn’t like to cross him on the field.“In fact, I wouldn’t play against him at all. He’s scary.”Expect to see much more of young Etzebeth in the coming years, and during the Rugby Championship, where he will no doubt add to the three Test caps he picked up against England.One of the best things about this moment is that we now have proof that Bismarck is in fact human. Despite being knocked out the way by the double decker bus though, he shrugged off the blow and soldiered on, contributing to the Sharks victory and helping them reach the Super Rugby final.
