Six Nations Team of the Week

first_img The wild and wacky era of bonus points in the Six Nations kicked off at the weekend and, well, nothing really changed.No try bonus points were awarded and although two losing bonus points were picked up, the competition looked no different to the tight and compelling fixtures that we have become accustomed to.Traditionalists have been placated, progressives remain hopeful, and now we can all just get on with enjoying the rugby.We take a look at the standout performers from the opening round below, make some way-too-soon British & Irish Lions calls and assemble a XV of the week…15. Stuart Hogg, ScotlandThe Scottish full-back moved one step closer to securing the Lions 15 jersey with a classy and complete performance at Murrayfield. His two tries were just reward for an outing filled with attacking endeavour, mastery of any contested aerial balls that came his way and a more-than-solid defensive showing.France’s Scott Spedding had one of his best games in a blue jersey but ultimately it was an easy decision to plump for Hogg here. Will it be so easy for Warren Gatland in the summer?14. George North, WalesEven after picking up an early leg injury and seeming to be holding his elbow at points throughout the game, Wales’ bionic man rose to the fore and had one of his better games at Test level for some time.The Italians struggled to contain his power in the wide channels and whilst it was concerning to see him limping at times during the match, we can draw succour from the fact it was not an injury involving North’s head, something which has plagued him in recent years.13. Jonathan Joseph, EnglandWhilst Joseph’s offensive performance didn’t catch the eye in the same fashion as Jonathan Davies’s second-half explosion in Rome did, it was his disciplined defensive duties which won him the nod here and certainly proved vital to England’s win.All-court player: Jonathan Joseph kicks through v France but it was his defensive work that stood outElliot Daly’s transition to the wing is a work in progress – particularly defensively – and Joseph is aware of this, biding his time in defence, shifting assignments as the ball is moved and often covering multiple attackers. It may not show up in any statistic but Joseph kept England in that game when they were severely under the cosh.12. Owen Farrell, EnglandComfortably England’s standout player on Saturday, Farrell is not only cementing his reputation as one of the best players in the world but also forcing Gatland’s hand with complete performances, week after week.George Ford had a poor game by his standards and this put the pressure on Farrell to take over the back-line from inside-centre and then later at fly-half, where he assisted the game-winning try for Ben Te’o. His open-field tackle on a marauding Louis Picamoles wasn’t bad, either.11. Virimi Vakatawa, FranceThe Fijian-born wing was the most potent weapon in the French back-line on Saturday. His effectiveness was only negated by England’s clear plan of kicking to him as an exit strategy and limiting his impact with an effective kick chase by Jonny May and Maro Itoje.Even with this in place, Vakatawa still caused plenty of problems to May and if France’s midfield can regularly deliver the ball to him in space and situations where he is one-on-one with defenders, he will continue to light up the championship.French jewel: Virimi Vakatawa, here testing Nathan Hughes, sparkled at HQ (Icon Sport/Getty)10. Sam Davies, WalesDavies’s introduction from the bench proved the catalyst in Wales’ resurgent second-half performance in Rome and he couldn’t have done much more to warrant consideration for a starting spot this weekend.The Welsh centres looked far more incisive running on to Davies’s passes and the young fly-half ran the line with aplomb, using decoy runners more effectively than any Welsh 10 since Stephen Jones.9. Baptiste Serin, FranceIf France could divert some of their prodigious scrum-half production into their fly-half stocks, what a Test-playing nation they would be.Serin shone in his first Six Nations start, delivering the tempo and distribution that most teams clamour for. Unfortunately for France, they aren’t necessarily the best-suited team to play at tempo, particularly in their tight five.Ben Youngs’s pinpoint box-kicking also deserves a mention, given how critical it was in England’s narrow win.

Jack McGrath, IrelandAnother very solid outing from McGrath, who enjoyed a good deal of success against fast-rising tighthead Zander Fagerson.He may not offer as much in the loose as Mako Vunipola or international and provincial team-mate Cian Healy, but McGrath is surely one of the names already pencilled into Gatland’s touring squad, such is the reliability and consistency he gives his teams at the set-piece.Irish muscle: Jack McGrath and (left) Tadgh Furlong should both tour with the Lions (Inpho)2. Ross Ford, ScotlandFord was called upon early after Fraser Brown left the game against Ireland with injury and the veteran hooker did not disappoint with his performance.The lineout continued to function well and his defensive commitment in the loose was extremely impressive, as Scotland withstood significant Irish possession and territorial advantages.3. Tadgh Furlong, IrelandJust like McGrath, Furlong delivered at the scrum for Ireland and is another player pencilling himself into Gatland’s summer plans purely because of the advantage he can give you in the confines of the set-piece.He tore into Allan Dell at the first couple of scrums and though the South African-born loosehead recovered well and held his own after that, it was not an area where Scotland were able to manufacture any kind of an advantage over Ireland.4. Richie Gray, ScotlandYounger brother Jonny may, rightfully, be drawing more global acclaim of late, but it was the older brother who really stepped up in a dogged and hard-fought encounter at Murrayfield.Both Richie and Jonny recorded over 20 tackles apiece but it was Richie who seemed to take the lead, organising the defence during repeated Irish barrages º particularly around the fringes – and getting up on multiple occasions to muddy the Irish lineout.5. Alun Wyn Jones, WalesIt was never really in doubt but the experienced lock showed no signs of wilting under the pressure of captaincy. He helped rally Wales after their dire first-half performance and was at the centre of the front-foot ball his side delivered.Courtney Lawes deserves a mention for an effective showing at Twickenham, particularly his momentum-shifting tackle on Serin, but Jones’s ball-carrying wins him the day here.6. Sam Warburton, WalesThere is clearly no bitterness or resentment from Warburton for that captaincy switch, as the flanker got his head down and put in a very impressive performance at the Stadio Olimpico.Impressive: Losing the captaincy could bring out the best of Wales back-row Sam Warburton (Getty)The turnover he won just before the interval drew plenty of praise – denying Italy an opportunity to extend their lead – and it was an example of the effective work he did at the breakdown all game long. He also brought more of a carrying presence to the pack than he has done previously.7. Hamish Watson, ScotlandAnother Herculean defensive performer for Scotland, Watson’s non-stop motor ensured he was affecting play throughout the game against Ireland, both in attack and defence.John Hardie arguably brings more at the breakdown and Cornell du Preez is a more prolific attacking player, so turning in this kind of a performance was significant for Watson as he looks to nail down a spot in in the Scottish back row.8. Louis Picamoles, FranceThe situation will look better once Taulupe Faletau and Billy Vunipola return, but what Gatland would give for a bending of old traditions and the ability to select this man to tour New Zealand.Picamoles was outstanding for France on Saturday, looking markedly fitter than all of his forward colleagues, and he rampaged through England’s defence multiple times. In fact, Picamoles had more metres with ball in hand than the whole of the England pack combined and very few of these were freebie metres, clocked up when running into open space. They were hard-earned.King Louis: France No 8 Louis Picamoles made more metres than the entire England pack (Getty)For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

Foto de U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.[Episcopal News Service] Para las compañías productoras de energía, el Refugio Nacional de la Vida Salvaje del Ártico, en particular su planicie costera de 607.000 hectáreas, representa una valiosa veta potencial de petróleo y gas natural. Para los gwich’in, el pueblo indígena que durante siglos lo ha llamado su hogar, [el sitio] es sagrado.Este conflicto lleva andando durante más de 30 años de un debate contencioso respecto a si esta planicie costera debe de abrirse a la explotación petrolera o mantenerse como un hábitat intocado. El ecosistema biológicamente diverso es el hogar del caribú Purcopine, de osos polares, de lobos grises, de ovejas Dall, del toro almizclero, de 42 especies de peces y de más de 200 especies de aves.Es un debate permanente que sólo el Congreso de EE.UU. puede resolver, y una vez más está en el radar con la reciente introducción de un proyecto de ley en la Cámara que designaría la planicie costera como una zona virgen, que quedaría definitivamente al margen de la explotación de hidrocarburos. El 21 de abril —la víspera del Día de la Tierra— y como parte de la campaña de 30 Días de Acción de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (DFMS), se instará a los episcopales a abogar a favor de la designación de la planicie costera como zona virgen.Situado en el extremo del refugio ártico sobre la costa del mar de Beaufort, justo al este de los campos petrolíferos de la bahía de Prudhoe, la planicie costera es el territorio donde se reproduce el caribú Purcopine, llamado así por el vecino río Purcopine.El pueblo Gwich’in, que ha dependido del caribú durante miles de años, se refiere a la planicie costera como “el lugar sagrado donde empieza la vida”.Los gwich’in, el 90 por ciento de los cuales son episcopales, se han enfrentado a los funcionarios conservadores de su estado para proteger la planicie costera del desarrollo y de la perforación petrolífera. La designación de zona virgen también protegería los derechos culturales y de subsistencia del pueblo gwich’in.“Dependemos de las manadas de caribúes Purcopine para nuestra supervivencia y si la salud de esa manada se ve amenazada, ello amenaza nuestro modo de vida. Un día tendremos que volver a una vida más sencilla y no podremos hacerlo si la manada se ha ido”, dijo Princess Daazhraii Johnson, episcopal de toda la vida y ex directora ejecutiva del Comité Directivo Gwich’in.En1988, miembros provenientes de toda la Nación Gwich’in se reunieron en Arctic Village, Alaska, en el rincón sudeste del refugio ártico, para una asamblea peculiar en más de un siglo. Acudieron en aerotaxis provenientes de 15 remotas aldeas, dispersas a través del nordeste de Alaska y el noroeste de Canadá —aldeas localizadas en la ruta migratoria del caribú— y crearon el Comité Directivo Gwich’in, explicó Johnson, en una llamada telefónica con Episcopal News Service desde la iglesia episcopal de San Mateo [St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church] en Fairbanks.“No habíamos tenido una reunión como esta en 100 años, pero esta fue una discusión seria”, explicó ella. “Yo tenía 14 años en ese momento. Mi familia asistió a la reunión. Yo no estuve, pero las ramificaciones tuvieron un gran impacto en mi vida”.Noventa y cinco por ciento de la Ladera Norte de Alaska ya está abierta al desarrollo, dijo Johnson. Abrir la planicie costera tendría una repercusión mundial.“Penetrar en el refugio es simbólico… Enviaría un mensaje de que no hay lugares permanentemente protegidos, [que] ningún lugar es sagrado”, dijo “ [que] nuestra sed por extraer petróleo va a sobreponerse a eso”.A través del debate, las voces indígenas han sido marginadas, y a las culturas nativas se les ha caracterizado como ingenuas, descartando el hecho de que los pueblos indígenas han vivido en su tierra ancestral en el Ártico durante siglos, y que han sufrido de primera mano los efectos del cambio climático.“Me siento muy agradecida de que la Iglesia Episcopal siempre ha elevado su voz”, dijo ella.La participación de la IglesiaLa Iglesia Episcopal ha estado en Alaska desde mediados del siglo XIX, y los gwich’in han sido casi en su totalidad miembros de la Iglesia, dijo el Rdo. Scott Fisher, rector de San Mateo, quien participó en la entrevista telefónica desde su parroquia.El apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal para proteger el refugio del Ártico, explicó él, comenzó en la Diócesis de Alaska, donde el clero gwich’in introdujo el asunto por primera vez y luego lo presentó ante la Convención General.En 1991, la Convención General aprobó una resolución por la que oponía a la explotación de petróleo en el refugio del Ártico y se comprometía a trabajar en pro de una legislación “para mejorar la eficiencia y la conservación energéticas de manera que perforar en esta zona prístina no sería necesario”.Clérigos gwich’in y el obispo de Alaska, Mark Lattime, posan para una foto en la iglesia episcopal de San Mateo en Fairbanks en junio de 2014, luego de una histórica eucaristía en lengua takudh. Foto cortesía de Scott Fisher.“El Refugio Nacional de la Vida Salvaje del Ártico es más que la preservación de una zona virgen establecida para proteger la pérdida de delicados ecosistemas árticos, es también un lugar sagrado: el hogar espiritual y cultural del pueblo gwich’in”, escribió [el Rvdmo.] Mark Lattimel, obispo de Alaska, en un e-mail a ENS, cuando le preguntaron sobre la importancia del continuo apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Todos los cristianos están llamados a buscar la justicia y la paz entre todos los pueblos, y a respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano. Esto es el voto sagrado del bautismo. Como obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Alaska, la Iglesia que la mayoría de los gwich’in identifica como suya, llamó a las personas de fe, especialmente a los episcopales, a escuchar la voz del pueblo gwich’in cuando procura proteger no sólo el medioambiente y la paz de su hogar, sino el respeto a su modo de vida y a la dignidad que éste conlleva”.In 2005 la Iglesia Episcopal se asoció con el Comité Directivo Gwich’in en un informe sobre las implicaciones en los derechos humanos de las perforaciones [petrolíferas] en el refugio.La perspectiva histórico-políticaEn 1960, un año después de que Alaska se convirtiera en estado, el presidente Dwight Eisenhower reservó 3,4 millones de hectáreas en la Ladera Norte y la designó “Pradera Nacional de la Vida Salvaje del Ártico”.Las crisis en el Oriente Medio de los años setenta, la rebelión de la OPEC de 1973-74 y la revolución de Irán de 1979 aumentaron dramáticamente los precios del petróleo, y la explotación en la bahía de Prudhoe, que anteriormente había sido demasiado costosa, se hizo rentable. En la actualidad es el mayor yacimiento petrolífero de América del Norte.En 1980, el presidente Jimmy Carter y el Congreso, en conformidad con la Ley de Conservación de Tierras de Interés Nacional en Alaska, aumentó en más del doble la zona de preservación, rebautizándola como “Refugio Nacional de la Vida Salvaje del Ártico”.Aunque la Ley de Conservación de Tierras de Interés Nacional en Alaska exigía que el estado pusiera la utilización [de recursos] para la subsistencia del pueblo indígena por encima de todo lo demás y prohibía las exploraciones de petróleo y gas en el rincón nordeste a lo largo de la planicie costera, dejó la posibilidad de futuras exploraciones en manos de congreso.En 1987, cuando Ronald Reagan era presidente, el Departamento del Interior de EE.UU. recomendó que el Congreso abriera la planicie costera a la explotación petrolífera. El presidente George H.W. Bush, que comenzó su presidencia en 1989, hizo de la perforación en el refugio una pieza central de su política energética, y a principios de marzo de 1989 un subcomité del Senado aprobó un arrendamiento en la planicie costera. El 24 de marzo de 1989, el Exxon Valdez vertió más de 11 millones de galones de petróleo crudo en el estrecho del Príncipe William.Cuando Irak invadió a Kuwait y más tarde incendió sus yacimientos petrolíferos, la posibilidad de perforar en el refugio del Ártico  adquirió nuevamente vigencia y finalmente se abrió paso en un paquete presupuestario que el presidente Bill Clinton vetó. Luego de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre y de un aumento en los precios del petróleo, el presidente George W. Bush, al igual que su padre, pensó que perforar en la planicie costera debía de ser parte de la política energética del país.A principios de enero de este año, se presentó en la Cámara de Representantes federal con apoyo bipartidario la Ley de la Zona Virgen del Ártico Udall-Eisenhower .  Si es aprobada, protegería de manera permanente 4,9 millones de hectáreas —incluida la planicie costera. El 25 de enero el presidente Barack Obama respaldó el proyecto de ley. Si lo aprueban, la zona se convertiría en la mayor zona virgen protegida desde la aprobación de la Ley de Zonas Vírgenes en 1964.Defensa continuaLa Iglesia Episcopal se unió a otras comunidades religiosas para darle las gracias a Obama por tomar una medida que “representa un paso decisivo en la protección de una parte sagrada de la creación de Dios, y le damos las gracias por empeñarse en salvaguardar este tesoro nacional”.“Participamos en esta labor de defensa no sólo por nuestra preocupación de administrar la creación de Dios, sino también por mostrarnos en solidaridad con nuestros hermanos y hermanas gwich’in que viven en el Ártico y dependen de las manadas del caribú Purcopine para su subsistencia diaria”, dijo Jayce Hafner, analista de política nacional para la DFMS.La Iglesia Episcopal en su 77ª. Convención General en 2012 aprobó una legislación en la que decía que “estaba en solidaridad con esas comunidades que llevan las cargas del cambio climático global”, entre ellos los pueblos indígenas.“La Iglesia Episcopal, la comunidad religiosa en un sentido más amplio y otras [entidades] se han mostrado realmente solidarias de los gwich’in, pero para mí hay un panorama más grande y más amplio”, dijo Johnson. “Necesitamos una economía más compasiva y debemos pensar en el cambio climático: las personas más afectadas son indígenas, pero todo el mundo está afectado”.Los indígenas de Alaska ya han comenzado a experimentar cambios significativos en su entorno natural, explicó Johnson durante un panel sobre las repercusiones regionales del cambio climático. El panel fue parte del foro del 24 de marzo en Los Ángeles que tuvo lugar para crear conciencia a través de la Iglesia Episcopal de los efectos del cambio climático.“El Ártico es uno de los lugares del planeta que se está entibiando más rápidamente y estamos viendo derretirse las capas de hielo, nuestros glaciares están desapareciendo, la costra congelada se está derritiendo, [y hay] erosión costera”, dijo Johnson durante el foro. “Ya tenemos a comunidades enteras que deben ser relocalizadas”.El cambio climático es el cambio gradual en la temperatura global causado por acumulación de gases de efecto invernadero que atrapan el calor en la atmósfera y, en consecuencia, alteran la temperatura de la tierra. Algunas zonas se tornan más cálidas, así como otras se hacen más frías. Por ejemplo, la zona continental de Estados Unidos experimentó el invierno más frío que se conoce desde que comenzara este registro formal de las temperaturas a fines del siglo XIX, mientras que Alaska experimentó un invierno moderado para la estación.Proteger la planicie costera del Ártico es particularmente importante ahora mismo, dijo Hafner, mientras el planeta confronta las emisiones de carbón producidas por la extracción de combustible fósil, lo cual, a su vez, contribuye al cambio climático.“Estamos sosteniendo estas conversaciones en la esfera local de las comunidades parroquiales, en la esfera nacional con el Plan Presidencial para la Energía Limpia, y en el ámbito internacional con las negociaciones de la Convención sobre el Cambio Climático en el Marco de las Naciones Unidas que culminarán en París en diciembre”, afirmó ella.El objetivo de la conferencia de París es forjar un acuerdo internacional con vistas a que el mundo haga la transición hacia sociedades y economías resistentes y de bajo consumo de carbón. Si se logra, sería el primer tratado internacional vinculante en 20 años de conversaciones sobre el clima en las Naciones Unidas, y afectaría a países desarrollados y en vías de desarrollo.— Lynette Wilson es redactora de Episcopal News Service.

The grid has been carved into a lunar landscape, an isolated corner in the north-west of the third-driest country on earth.When Azraq was opened in April 2014, it was expected to become one of the world’s most heavily populated refugee camps. It had capacity for 130,000. Today, despite the concerted efforts of the Jordanian government and its international partners — a UN fact-sheet lists schools, health centres, and plans to roll out electricity — it is home to just 28,000.Syrian refugees would rather take their chances in the country’s cities and towns, where they eke out a hand-to-mouth existence, sustained by handouts from the UN and NGOs, and casual work in the underground economy. Many are living in destitution, resorting to begging, child labour, and survival sex. Recent estimates are that nine in ten live below the Jordanian poverty-line.Click here to read the full in-depth report on the Church Times’ website.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Dallas, Texas] The slogan on the swag bag read: “Episcopal Evangelist. It’s not an oxymoron.”While some people might think that an Episcopal evangelist is a rare breed, more than 400 evangelism veterans and fledgling practitioners spent Nov. 18-19 being inspired, finding camaraderie and learning new ways to live up to that slogan during the Evangelism Matters conference at Church of the Transfiguration here.Evangelism Matters conference participants make their “cardboard testimonials,” first the side of a struggle of theirs (above) and, here, the side of God at work in their struggle. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe Rev. Emily Schnabl, rector of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, Midwest City, Oklahoma, said she was already convinced of the need for evangelism and came to the conference looking for practical ways to bring that idea alive in her parish. She told Episcopal News Service that she left feeling supported in some of what St. Christopher’s is already doing and with some “really achievable things that I’ve literally got in my bag to take back.”The Episcopal Church is waking up to the need for evangelism, said Ron Braman, an enrolled member of the Eastern Shoshone tribe in Wyoming and music minister at the Episcopal Mission of the Good Shepherd in Fort Hall, Idaho. Braman said he was encouraged by the presence of lay evangelists because too many people assume that the work ought only to be done by the clergy. That expectation is self-destructive, he said, “because if we’re not doing our part, we’re just setting up our leaders to fail.”The Rev. Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism and reconciliation, leads the conference’s final plenary. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFighting the oxymoron perception begins with individuals, the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism and reconciliation, said during the Nov. 19 plenary, asking “why do we need a conference to convince ourselves or to proclaim that evangelism matters?”“I think you know why,” she answered. “I think we know that, deep down, we’ve been ambivalent” about even the word “evangelism,” much less being evangelists.When she asked people to shout out why that is so, some of the answers were “fear of rejection,” “fear of looking tacky,” “hurtful things that have been done in the name of evangelism,” “leave it to the clergy,” “people have to be gifted to do evangelism” and “I’m not sure; what is the Good News?”Evangelism Matters, which quickly sold out its 400 spaces and then made room for 14 more, was co-sponsored by Forward Movement and the Presiding Bishop’s Office, and was hosted by the Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Transfiguration.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was always on the move during his time at the Evangelism Matters conference at Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas, Texas. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServicePresiding Bishop Michael Curry, during his keynote address and again during his sermon, both on Nov. 18, set an ambitious agenda, gave a rousing call to action and explicated what Episcopal evangelism is and is not.“Jesus did not go to the cross for a bigger church,” Curry said during his address, adding that, likewise, evangelism doesn’t have anything to do with making a bigger church; it has to do with a better world.It also has nothing to do with cultural or religious imperialism, the presiding bishop said. “This is not about conquering the world for Christ,” he said during his sermon. “It’s about saturating the world with love.”Maybe, Curry suggested, the Episcopal Church is supposed to tell the world that Christianity’s foundation is the love shown in Jesus.The call to be a Christian is not a call to a cultural imperialism; it is a call to serve the world that is aching to see the Jesus of the Bible, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said during his Nov. 18 sermon during the Evangelism Matters conference at Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas, Texas. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAnd, he said, God is at work in this growing awareness. “I think we’re in one of those cultural moments in which we very well may be participating in God’s re-evangelization of the western world and a re-evangelization via a Christianity that resembles Jesus.”Curry said “evangelism is about going home and helping each other find the way” and it is about helping people find God and build a relationship with God, who made them for love and longs for them.“Evangelism matters because God didn’t make us for a nightmare,” he said.Curry described his dreams for the church. In what he called a fantasized possibility and not a proposed program or an official statement, he asked the conference to imagine what it would be like if the Episcopal Church adopted the model of Doctors Without Borders by marshaling its resources and going anywhere there is a need.“What if the churchwide budget — General Convention — said to heck with some of this structure, let’s just use this money for evangelism wherever there is a need?” he asked, adding the question of what if dioceses purposefully contributed to evangelism going on anywhere in the church.Curry asked what would happen if every time a church had to close somewhere and the property sold “some percentage of that money were taken and put in a ‘new generation fund’ to start new churches anywhere in the Church “so that the death of one leads to the resurrection of another?” The audience responded with loud and sustained applause.During an Evangelism Matters workshop, Viliami Lino, Honolulu, talks to a fellow participant during a faith-sharing exercise. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe presiding bishop suggested some other possibilities for anchoring an evangelism ethic in the Episcopal Church. One suggestion was to require people preparing for ordination to get intense training in how to be evangelists just as they are now required to take a unit of clinical pastoral education to learn how to be spiritual caregivers. Another was finding ways to make social media in an authentic and positive way that could turn that media into “the new evangelism superhighway” similar to the way the efficiency of the Roman Empire, especially its highways and its postal system, enabled the swift spread of budding Christianity.For two of the organizers, the conference was evidence of God at work. “We dreamed of something happening in the church and God did something more than we could have dreamed of,” the Rev. Frank Logue, Diocese of Georgia canon to the ordinary and Executive Council member, said of the size and mood of the conference.But, he added, the conference has to be a beginning, not an accomplishment. It could be tempting to accept Curry’s self-declared role as “chief evangelism officer” and assume that is all that is needed.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry invited Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon to attend Evangelism Matters. Fearon spoke to the conference, praising it for “re-evangelizing this part of the Anglican Communion.” During a later press conference, he said that rest of Communion needs to know that the Episcopal Church talks not just about human sexuality; it talks about evangelism, too, and that it is setting an example of attempting to live together amid difference, contextualizing gospel. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“If we want to rely on our presiding bishop alone, as talented as he is, we will have made him into an idol and it would be better to ask him to step down,” he said. Instead, as Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon suggested during short remarks to the conference, if Episcopalians become chief evangelism officers in their diocese, their congregations and in their families, “then we will have really joined the movement.”The Rev. Susan Snook, another Executive Council member and founding rector of Church of the Nativity in Scottsdale, Arizona, said when she sponsored Resolution D005 at General Convention in 2015 to set up a church-planting network and when Logue convinced that same meeting of convention to add $2.8 million to the 2016-2018 budget for evangelism work, “we thought we were pushing at a closed door.”“Or maybe we’d crack it open a little bit and, oh my gosh, we have found that the spirit has blown that door wide open. We are ready for something new in the church.”She told ENS she would like to see Episcopalians connect with the people from their diocese who attended the conference and who can show them how to spread the good news of Christ through their communities.Snook, a veteran evangelist and church planter, said she found renewal and refinement of her ministry at the conference. She went to the “Elevator Evangelism” workshop, run by the Rev. Casey Shobe, Transfiguration’s rector, and learned how to hone the story of why she follows Jesus down to one minute. “I got in touch with a way of speaking about it that I hadn’t done before,” she said.Conference detailsThe Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, right, introduces the conference’s main panel Nov. 18 on “What is Evangelism?” Participants were, from left, Carrie Boren Headington, missioner for evangelism, Diocese of Dallas; Mary Parmer, creator of the Invite *Welcome* Connect program, Diocese of Texas; the Rev. Marcus Halley, Diocese of West Missouri; and the Rev. Alberto Cutié, Diocese of Southeast Florida made up the morning panel. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceParticipants had their choice of 25 workshops offered during three time slots. Among the workshop titles were “Talking God Today,” “Compassionate Evangelism: A Non-Judgmental Approach to Sharing Your Faith,” “Social Media, Evangelism and Connecting with Emerging Cultures,” and “How To Make a Rocking Welcome Video on a Dime.” Many of the workshops offered handouts to participants and most of those can be found here.Parts of the conference were streamed live and at one point more than 1,000 computers had connected to the broadcast. Those streamed events are now available for on-demand viewing here. (In each viewer labeled “Church” and “Performance Hall” click on the icon in the upper right corner to find individual sessions.)Logue summarized the conference during its closing session. That summary is here.Prior to the Evangelism Matters conference, leaders of new church plants or mission initiatives met Nov. 16-17 in the inaugural Genesis Gathering of the Episcopal Church at the Church of the Ascension, also in Dallas. The conference’s goal was to help establish a community of practice among such leaders in which they could encourage each other and learn from each other. The Episcopal Church’s Genesis Group (formally known as the Advisory Group on Church Planting) sponsored the event.A third gathering, an invitation-only meeting called “the summit,” gathered some participants of each of the other meetings before and after Evangelism Matters to discuss the current and hoped-for future state of evangelism in the Episcopal Church, and what resources are needed.– The Rev.

En particular, pedimos escuchar las voces de la iglesia más amplia en la Convención General para que los diputados y obispos pudieran considerar tanto cómo expiar el pasado de la iglesia y formar un futuro más justo. Como seguidores de Jesús de Nazaret, como hijos de Dios con todo el mundo, no podíamos hacer menos y debemos hacer más.En julio, la Convención General consideró 26 resoluciones y una conmemoración que abordan los asuntos que el movimiento #YoTambién (#MeToo) ha sacado a la luz, muchos desarrollados por el Comité Especial de la Cámara de Diputados sobre Acoso y Explotación Sexuales. Una de estas resoluciones, Resolución D034, suspende por tres años el canon (ley eclesiástica) que impone un plazo para iniciar procesos en casos de mala conducta sexual en contra de adultos por parte de clérigos. No existe un plazo para denunciar mala conducta sexual en contra de niños y jóvenes menores de 21 años de edad por parte de clérigos.Como resultado de esta resolución, desde 1 de enero de 2019 hasta 31 de diciembre de 2021, los que quieren iniciar un caso de mala conducta sexual contra un clérigo podrán hacerlo, independientemente de hace cuanto tiempo ocurrió la supuesta mala conducta. Las alegaciones de mala conducta pueden presentarse al gestor en la diócesis donde ocurrió la supuesta mala conducta, o, si la alegación es contra un obispo, a la Oficina de Desarrollo Pastoral. Pueden aprender cómo comunicarse con el gestor en una diócesis buscando en su sitio web o llamando a la oficina del obispo.Esperamos que esta suspensión temporal del estatuto de limitaciones será una manera en que la iglesia pueda aceptar los casos de mala conducta sexual en nuestro pasado colectivo. De aquí a la Convención General en 2021, los laicos, clérigos y obispos nombrados a varios grupos de trabajo por la Convención General de 2018 trabajarán en otras maneras de abordar estos asuntos, incluso un proceso de ayudar a la iglesia a involucrarse en la veracidad, la confesión y reconciliación respecto a nuestra historia de discriminación basada en género, acoso y violencia.Agradecemos los numerosos diputados, obispos y otros voluntarios en toda la iglesia cuyo trabajo cuidadoso antes de, durante y después de la Convención General ayudan a que nuestra iglesia avance al día cuando, habiéndonos arrepentido de nuestros pecados y enmendado nuestra vida común, podamos ser restaurados en amor, gracia y confianza el uno con el otro mediante nuestro Salvador Jesucristo.Fielmente,El Rvdmo.

Dickson to take action on the decision that the high court remitted to Dickson for enforcement nearly 2 years ago.Because Dickson “is in the process of scheduling hearings on the matters filed in the circuit court, we are confident that (the judge) will resolve the petition to enforce the judgment, as well as any related matters that are pending, in an expeditious manner,” the order says.The order was signed by Chief Justice Donald W. Beatty and Justices John W. Kittredge, John Cannon Few and George C. James Jr. Justice Kaye G. Hearn did not participate.The disputed properties currently are under the control of a group led by Bishop Mark Lawrence that left The Episcopal Church in 2012 and then sued the church in an attempt to keep the property.TECSC and The Episcopal Church filed the petition for writ of mandamus on March 20, noting it was seeking such an “extraordinary remedy” because the delay in enforcing the high court’s decision is continuing to cause harm to the church and its diocese.To date, the Orangeburg-based court has held one scheduling conference and one hearing on a motion for “clarification” filed by the disassociated group. Another hearing that had been scheduled for March 27 was cancelled a few days beforehand, and the court has not set a new date.
