Los episcopales de la zona de Boston se reúnen para…

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Hopkinsville, KY Annie Packard, de 13 años, canta durante la eucaristía de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Copley Square, en el Templo Israel, que invitó a la congregación a usar su santuario el 12 de abril en Boston. La Trinidad se encontraba dentro de la zona bloqueada cerca de la meta de la maratón de Boston, donde explotaron dos bombas el 15 de abril al final de la carrera. Packard estaba en las gradas cuando explotó la primera bomba y corrió en dirección a la segunda bomba, que explotó diez segundos después. Foto de Julio Cortez para la AP.[Episcopal News Service] Puede que todos no hayan podido llegar a sus iglesias, pero horas después de que el segundo de los dos sospechosos de los atentados de la Maratón de Boston fuera capturado el 19 de abril, los episcopales de la zona de Boston seguían dándose mutuas muestras de apoyo y ofreciéndoles solidaridad a sus vecinos.La policía capturó a Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, de 19 años, mientras se encontraba escondido en un bote estacionado en un traspatio a sólo unas pocas cuadras de la iglesia del Buen Pastor [Church of the Good Shepherd] en Watertown, Massachusetts. Se encontraba débil debido a una herida de bala luego de huir a pie de un encuentro a tiros con la policía en que se hicieron unos 200 disparos.La Rda. Amy McCreath, sacerdote encargada del Buen Pastor, le envió un correo electrónico a su congregación poco después de la captura, en el que llamaba a ésta “un gran regalo”.“La junta parroquial se reunió mediante una llamada en conferencia mientras tenían lugar los sucesos de anoche, para orar por todos ustedes, por sus hijos y especialmente por nuestros vecinos de la calle Franklin”, escribió ella.La iglesia del Buen Pastor permaneció abierta el 20 de abril para “oración y compañía” y Angelita Caceda fue uno de los miembros que vino a la iglesia al día siguiente de que tuviera lugar en su barrio el drama que era seguido internacionalmente. La noche antes, ella se había mantenido en el piso de su casa mientras la brillante luz de un helicóptero de la policía iluminaba la habitación.“Cuando vi que era la calle Franklin, me dije ‘eso es por donde yo acostumbro a caminar. Veo ese bote constantemente’”, contó ella en la página web de Salem Patch.McCreath dijo que la gente entraba en la iglesia y soltaban sus experiencias del día anterior. “Lo tenían dentro y necesitaban compartirlo”.Esa noche, alrededor de 300 personas se reunieron en el Campo de la Victoria [Victory Field] de Watertown para una vigilia en memoria de las víctimas de los atentados de la Maratón.“Ésta es una manera en que el ciudadano común puede realmente dar gracias a todos los que cuidan de nosotros”, dijo Mary Labadini —señora de 56 años que se especializa en el cuidado de ancianos y que asistió a la vigilia— en declaraciones al Boston Globe. “Uno no puede darles las gracias a todos individualmente, pero esto muestra que los sentimientos del público están con ellos”.Los vecinos que acudieron a la vigilia intercambiaban historias sobre las dramáticas acciones de la policía en sus barrios, incluidos los encuentros a tiros y los metódicos registros casa por casa realizados por los equipos de SWAT.Voluntarios de una filial local de los Veteranos de Guerras Extranjeras entregaban banderas estadounidenses. Los vecinos cantaron espontáneamente el himno nacional y otros cantos patrióticos, recitaron la Jura de la Bandera, y escucharon en silencio mientras McCreath hacia una improvisada oración de acción de gracias.Thomas Shaw, SSJE [el obispo de] de la Diócesis de Massachusetts, vino al Buen Pastor el 21 de abril “como una señal para nosotros de las oraciones y la solidaridad de la Iglesia denominacional”, dijo McCreath a sus feligreses.La iglesia contó con la participación de ministros de sanación que oraron con las personas durante la comunión y orientaron la discusión durante la Liturgia de la Palabra para los niños, “para ayudarles a procesar los eventos de la semana y a recobrar la calma y la esperanza”.El 21 de abril fue el cuarto domingo de Pascua, se conoce como el Domingo del Buen Pastor, porque el evangelio del día es [el pasaje de] Juan 10:22-30, una porción de la historia en que Jesús se llama a sí mismo el buen pastor que da su vida por sus ovejas. Por tanto, es la fiesta patronal de las congregaciones que están bajo la advocación del Buen Pastor.No todos los episcopales pudieron asistir a sus iglesias para el Domingo del Buen Pastor. La iglesia de La Trinidad de Copley Square, a sólo yardas de donde ocurrieron los atentados cerca de la meta de la maratón, se encontraba todavía inaccesible, debido a que estaba incluida dentro de los límites de la escena del crimen que los investigadores habían establecido. Según un informe, El FBI le permitió a algunos funcionarios de la iglesia que entraran durante media hora el 20 de abril para recoger vestimentas y el pan y el vino para la eucaristía.La sinagoga Templo Israel abrió sus puertas a la congregación y ésta llenó el santuario que tiene asientos para 900 personas. El rabino Ronne Friedman dijo a CNN que la sinagoga se sentía honrada de acoger a La Trinidad en una hora de necesidad. “Fue hermoso y conmovedor”, “Y fue un recordatorio de los profundos vínculos que existen entre nosotros. Nos recordó a todos que nuestra proximidad no es sólo geográfica.“Después del trauma de la semana pasada, estamos en una mutua relación de proximidad, espiritual y psicológicamente. Creo que todos sentimos muy profundamente que era un solo Boston”.El Rdo. Samuel T. Lloyd III, sacerdote a cargo de La Trinidad, oró por aquellos que fueron asesinados “y por los que deben reconstruir sus vidas sin las piernas con las que corrieron y caminaron la semana pasada”, informó Yahoo News.“Así, pues, ¿dónde está Dios cuando los terroristas hacen su tarea?”, preguntó Lloyd. “Dios está allí, amparándonos y sosteniéndonos. Dios está en el dolor que sufren las víctimas, y en la restauración que seguirá. Dios está con nosotros mientas tratamos de construir un mundo justo, un mundo donde no haya terroristas haciendo su terribles estragos”.Aún podían verse escombros en las calles cercanas a la iglesia de La Trinidad de Copley Square, seis días después de las bombas que explotaron en la Maratón de Boston. Foto de la iglesia de La Trinidad.Lloyd estaba entre esos sacerdotes y pastores que compartieron con la revista Time lo que pensaban de predicar el domingo siguiente a esos seis extraordinarios días en Boston. Él escribió que las personas tenían que mencionar lo que los terroristas trataron de hacerles y “mencionar la manera en que ha afectado nuestro espíritu, y luego hablar de todo para lo cual nos congregamos un domingo, para cuidar los unos de los otros, para recordar la gracia y la misericordia en el centro de todo día por día, y la afirmación del llamado a vivir el aquí y el ahora. Todo eso es nuestra respuesta a los empeños de los terroristas de socavar la estructura de nuestras vidas”.El oficio en la iglesia catedral de San Pablo [Cathedral Church of St. Paul] contigua al Parque Comunal de Boston [Boston Common] incluyó una oración al “Cristo Señor, víctima resucitada,” que “incluso en la cruz pediste el perdón de los que te asesinaron”. La oración en parte pedía a Cristo “recuérdanos de orar por los que nos persiguen. Mantennos fieles a tu justicia y no a la nuestra. Enséñanos a deshacer los ciclos de la violencia y la venganza y danos el valor de actuar conforme a nuestra fe”.Y, en Londres, el 20 de abril, la Rda. Jacqueline Cameron,  de la Diócesis de Chicago, predicó en el Oficio de Dedicación de la Maratón de Londres, celebrado en la iglesia de Todos los Santos de la Torre [All Hallows by the Tower]. Al día siguiente, Cameron corrió en la Maratón de Londres por segunda vez, y la 14ª. de su participación en maratones en general.El evento de Londres atrajo mucha atención por tener lugar seis días después de haberse producido el ataque en Boston y, al igual que en Boston, muchos corredores participaron con promesas de apoyo a varias instituciones benéficas.“El potencial poder restaurador de eventos tales como la Maratón de Londres es al menos tan impactante como el poder de la violencia”, dijo Cameron durante su sermón. “Sí, debemos recordar el dolor. Sí, debemos recordar el sufrimiento y los muertos de los atentados del lunes y de todos los actos de violencia y destrucción que salpican la historia de la humanidad. Pero también debemos aprender a no cargarnos de amargura ni envenenarnos con un deseo de venganza. Y una de las mejores formas de hacer eso es dejar que nuestro dolor nos estimule a realizar actos de valor, de alegría y de compasión”.—La Rda.

New Zealand postpones decision on same-sex blessings

first_img May 31, 2016 at 10:25 am The notion and accusation that conservative Christians approach the issue from a standpoint of oppression is itself discriminatory and oppressive. I have several close friends in same sex relationctcships and one couple are married. I maintain friendship and even close fellowship but draw a line at assuming it is my or even a church’s prerogative to reassign the design and intention expressed in the book of Genesis and reasserted in the New Testament. We should be hesitant in our age of permissiveness and general promiscuity to assume we Are well equipped morally or intellectually to manage the responsibility of so far reaching a challenge. Submit a Job Listing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia has postponed until 2018 a decision on whether or not to permit the blessing of same-sex marriages. The proposal had been made by the church’s “Way Forward” group, which had been mandated by the 2014 General Synod to come forward with proposals; but after days of discussion at this year’s synod, the decision has been delayed.Instead, the synod voted to postpone the decision until 2018 “with a firm expectation that a decision to move forward will be made” at that time. The motion that was passed by the synod also “establishes and commits to pray for a working group to be appointed by the Primates [of the province] to consider possible structural arrangements . . . to safeguard both theological convictions concerning the blessing” of same-sex relationships.The three primates of the province, archbishops Brown Turei, Philip Richardson and Winston Halapua, told Anglican Taonga: “We are aware of the considerable pain that this decision will cause to those most affected, but we are confident that our determination to work together across our differences will bring us to a place of dignity and justice for everyone.”A number of General Synod members gave their reactions to Anglican Taonga. Assistant Bishop of Auckland Jim White was unhappy with the outcome. “I am deeply disappointed by further delay on making our church fully inclusive,” he said.Another member unhappy with the decision was the Rev. Richard Bonifant from Auckland, who said: “We called this motion ‘A Way Forward,’ but I have come to think of it as something more like the ‘Land of Promise’. . . Once more, we find we cannot go into that land. This time in the wilderness comes at great cost to us.”But the decision was welcomed by others. “For conservatives the ‘A Way Forward’ report left us feeling unprotected in our theological position,” Archdeacon of Nelson Tim Mora said. “The new working group needs to constantly come back to the conservatives, to be sure that the recommendations are acceptable to them, before they bring it back to the next General Synod.”He said that there was “a definite will from the conservatives to look for a way that will protect our integrity and allow us to stay together.”Click here for more detailed reports on the debates by Anglican Taonga.

It was ultimately described as a compromise to free up parking options in older neighborhoods where it was difficult for residents with multiple cars to park legally.“We are not going to write an ordinance that’s going to meet the needs of every subdivision in Apopka,” said APD Chief Michael McKinley, who presented the ordinance to the City Council. “But we’ve gone from zero to opening up some parking spaces in the neighborhoods…and all neighborhoods are going to be different. Some will be more challenging. But this opens up some spots. Does it address everyone’s parking concerns? No, it does not. Is everyone happy? No, they are not. It does, however, allow citizens parking in places they currently cannot.”The ordinance is posted on the City’s website.   Use this link to download the ordinance. The rules in the proposed ordinance parallel those establish by the Florida Statues.  Use this link to look at those regulations.Under the ordinance, on-street parking would be allowed but would be regulated.  Some of those regulations would be:An unobstructed width of 12 feet must be left for the free passage of other vehicles.All parking must be with 12 inches of the edge of the pavement.No parking on a curve if it obstructs the regular flow of traffic or disrupts the sight picture along the roadway.No parking within 15 feet of a mailbox, except at night or days when mail is not delivered.  You will be allowed to park in front of your own mailbox.No parking that interferes with refuse removal.No parking in any cul-de-sac.No parking in or within 30 feet of an intersection.No parking within 12 feet of a driveway or across from a driveway.No parking in opposition of the lane of travel (left wheels to curb is prohibited).No parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.Parking on the street will be allowed only when parking in a driveway is not practicable.It also contains a provision that would allow individual Home Owners Associations to ban on-street parking in their neighborhood.

Chaz Prayer really does work you know!InspirationBy Charles TowneI have always liked to fly in the face of the status quo, to do the unexpected, the quirky; the, off the wall if you will.One of my larger than life heroes is John Muir.  John, due to his laboring for the protection of America’s wild places, has been called, and for good reason, the father of our national park system.  I believe that John would have enjoyed Hurricane Irma.  Yeah, I know that sounds a tad crazy, but I get it from something he wrote.  “There is nothing like a storm,” he bellowed after scaling a Douglas fir during a gale in Northern California.Clinging “with muscles firm braced, like a bobolink on a reed,” he drank in the wild exuberance of light and motion” for hours, certain that, “on such occasions, nature has always something rare to show us.  Throughout his life, Muir sought to experience all facets of nature, from the violent to the sublime.Boy, do I like that!  One thing I believe to the depths of my being, is that God not only hears our prayers, but He answers them.  Over the last few days I have been listening to a lot of dear folks expressing their fear of hurricane Irma.  I may be nuttier than a fruitcake, but Irma just doesn’t scare me.  “How come,” you might well ask. “Why aren’t you afraid?”Because I am praying, and I trust myself in His Holy hands!  What miracles could be wrought if we were all praying!  Now don’t get me wrong, I respect nature.  I know there are cataclysmic forces at work, awesome forces, that folks like to call, “Acts of God.”  But I must protest. The devil, after stirring up a cauldron of destruction, laughs gleefully when his pot of mischief boils over and is then blamed on the Father.But Satan is a liar, and the father of lies.  I believe the devil’s most serious deceptions and his most dangerous heresies involve God’s true character and motives.  So, as God’s children, I would encourage you to trust Him.  Rejoice and exult Him for you are safe in His arms, and pray my friend, pray, not just for yourself but for your neighbors, and see what wonders can be wrought.Our prayer:“Praise you O most Holy God, I praise you and exult your glorious name.  Papa, right now I place myself and all my neighbors in your hands.  Hold us close right now and protect your people.  I thank you Father for everything that you have done and everything that you are about to do.  I love you, and I trust you.  In Jesus’ most wonderful and Holy name, Amen.”At the end of this article in the comment section please type in a short prayer of thanksgiving.  It will be a blessing and encouragement to others.

The journey of arrival at the Millbrook House is an unhurried ascent, focused on experiencing and re-experiencing the land. On this 200-acre site, an architecture of discrete geometric objects set within a heroic landscape choreographs the route, mediating an unfolding sequence of thresholds and views. Up a rambling drive, through a forest to a small, gravel car park, the approach shifts to a footpath, rising along a hill’s ridge. In spirit, the progression recalls the seemingly meandering, yet deftly orchestrated path to an Ancient Greek temple, engaging the visitor with a landscape held even more sacred than the building itself.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesAt Millbrook, the first glimpse of built form is a cantilevered, weathering-steel box, the guesthouse, hovering over an edge of the car park. Deep red, patinated steel panels form a retaining wall, extending from beneath the studio straight up hill, rising with the regular rhythm of metal plates beside bluestone treads, set into the slope like stepping stones on a pool of water.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThe ascent reaches the hill’s crest, a grassy promontory, flanked by a rectangular glass pavilion along one side and, on the opposite edge, a series of four low, mahogany-sheathed volumes—as pure and distilled in their geometric repetition as a Minimalist sculpture. This arrangement around the clearing frames long, perspectival views of the Hudson Valley, reminiscent of the vista-capturing gestures of Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia and Louis Kahn’s Salk Institute. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThe glass pavilion at Millbrook sits so lightly and with such transparency that its floor seems to flow uninterrupted from the surrounding carpet of lawn. Once you’ve crossed the threshold, into the living-dining-kitchen space, full panoramic views open up, dramatically and in all directions.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThis clear volume plays against the wood-clad monoliths, windowless from the approach, their opaque, mahogany shells echoing the rich, earthy hues of the weathered steel. Though seemingly freestanding, the pavilion and its wood counterparts all connect indoors, beneath the grassy precinct. Each mahogany box, partially embedded in the sloping terrain, forms a private cabin for sleeping and bathing, entered one level below the glass pavilion. As if emerging from the earth, these high-ceilinged cabins have an intimate rapport with the landscape. In counterpoint to the visually expansive hilltop perch, they open only eastward, to the morning sun, each to its own bamboo garden and the meadows beyond. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesYour perception of the house and site evolve: not simply as you cross the land, but also as you move through the interior, from grand communal to quieter private zones. Outside, the experience crescendos as you crest the hill and step across the high lawn. But only when you venture into the glass pavilion does the journey reach its climax, from contained space opening to the vastness of the landscape.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesProject gallerySee allShow lessSkillbill / MaxwanArticlesJohn Pawson at London Design MuseumArticles Share Millbrook House / Thomas Phifer and PartnersSave this projectSaveMillbrook House / Thomas Phifer and Partners Save this picture!© Scott Frances+ 15 Share Projectslast_img read more
