Your community rugby hero could carry the Olympic torch

For example, the rugby coach who’s out in all weathers helping you to perform at your best, the team captain who always ensures the club is represented in major competitions, the committee members who are committed to developing the club and the players who always bring refreshments for the squad are all people within the rugby community who deserve the chance to carry the Olympic flame. The London 2012 Olympic torchLloyds TSB is giving hundreds of sports people who have made a difference in rugby the chance to carry the Olympic Flame in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will be a 70-day celebration, starting at Land’s End on 19 May 2012, travelling thousands of miles and bringing the spirit and inspiration of the London 2012 Games to hundreds of communities across the UK. Lloyds TSB is inviting the public and customers to nominate somebody who’s made a difference in their local community and inspired others for the once in a lifetime opportunity to be a London 2012 Olympic Torchbearer.Torchbearers can be nominated for making a difference through several different routes, but Lloyds is particularly keen to encourage the rugby community to consider the people who’ve made a difference to their specific sport. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Xavier Vrigneau from Dorset has nominated Paul Fowler because “Paul Fowler was my rugby coach at my old school from 2002-2007. He is an inspirational man and an amazing coach, I have seen him coach some of the best rugby but also instill morals for life into myself and my team mates. I will always remember his words “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail!” The most amazing thing however is how he has just overcome a severe case of prostate cancer, but he now continues to coach and teach inspiring others in his life.”There are unsung heroes like Paul Fowler within the rugby community who deserve the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the London 2012 Olympic Flame. Make sure you nominate them before 12 September to give them that chance. Nominations can be made online via www.lloydstsb.com/carrytheflame read more

Hotshots: Gloucester back-row Ross Moriarty

first_imgWhich coaches have helped you the most?Peter Walton, from England U18, found me playing for Gloucester U19 and has been my mentor ever since.Were you tempted to play for Wales not England?No, because I was at an English club and England approached me first.What are your aims now?To do ourselves proud at the World Championship, then to play as much as I can for Gloucester. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS On the charge: Moriarty on his way to Junior World Cup victory What was it like to win the Junior World Cup last year?It was quite surreal. We had a really good team and played really well, but this year everyone has as much chance as we did in 2013.Your dad (Paul) and uncle (Richard) both played for Wales, so was rugby always in your life? Since I could walk and talk I had a rugby ball. I used to go to training and games with my dad.Did you like other sports?I played in goal with Swansea City until I was about 11, then I played Swansea Schools rugby and that was all I wanted to do.When did you move to the back row?Not until I was 17. I went to Hartpury College as a full-back and I was playing second- and third-team rugby so I decided to try the back row. My dad said it would be difficult. RW verdict: A star for the England age groups, Moriarty will soon be making headlines for Gloucester.This hotshot was first published in the July 2014 edition of Rugby World.

Autumn Internationals: England v Australia preview

first_img Autumn Internationals: England v Australia previewA BT Sport poll this week to predict next year’s World Cup winners saw 38% of respondents vote for New Zealand, 31% vote for Ireland, and 22% declare for England.If England are to tilt the numbers more in their favour, only an emphatic victory over Australia in this weekend’s final 2018 Quilter International will do.Eddie Jones’s men have had a good autumn, despite the scrappiness of last weekend’s 35-15 win over Japan. Beating the born-again Springboks (12-11) and nearly upstaging the world champion All Blacks (15-16) has removed the demons that sprang up after a string of defeats earlier this year.New players have emerged, none more so than loosehead Ben Moon and back-row Mark Wilson, whose 21 tackles against Japan helped keep England on an even keel. The Newcastle man looks a certainty to make the squad for Japan 2019.Industrious: Mark Wilson has been a standout and will wear eight against the Wallabies (Offside/Getty)The Wallabies, two places behind England at sixth in the world rankings, have a reputation bigger than recent form. Since beating Wales in Cardiff a year ago, they’ve won just four of their 14 Tests and their build-up to this match has been hampered by a sickness bug that has affected several players, including Israel Folau and Bernard Foley.More bad news followed on Friday morning with news that David Pocock, probably the best jackler in world rugby, had failed a fitness test on a neck injury sustained in last weekend’s win in Italy. His withdrawal means there is a rare start for Pete Samu.Australia have been defensively sound in the last fortnight, conceding nine and seven points respectively in Wales and Italy, but have spluttered in attack. Head coach Michael Cheika, who got hot under the collar last year, is feeling the heat.Looking sharp: Sekope Kepu, Michael Hooper and Jack Maddocks in the Wallabies’ indigenous jerseyAs England boss, Eddie Jones has won all five previous meetings with the nation he coached for 57 Tests from 2001-05. It was the 26-16 defeat at Twickenham 13 years ago, when the Wallaby pack wilted and the match ended with uncontested scrums, that effectively led to Jones being sacked by his home country.In the book Rugby Maverick, author Mike Colman recalls a tale Jones told about the start of the 2016 Australia-England series in Brisbane.Jones said: “I’m Australian and I love Australia, but any semblance of a conflict was destroyed when I walked up the grandstand and sat in the box, and there was this woman sitting outside. She was immaculately dressed. She had the Yves Saint Laurent shoes on, the nice scarf, everything. And she turns after the national anthems and starts giving me the finger and an assortment of words. I thought, ‘Maybe I’m not in love with Australia any more’.”Sticking the knife in: Mark Cueto’s try in 2005 helped end Eddie Jones’s reign as Wallaby coachIt will be a special day for a player Jones blooded in Super Rugby at the age of 18, Will Genia. The scrum-half becomes the tenth Wallaby to win 100 caps, and makes his 89th Test start.“It will be huge, really special,” Genia said. “Everybody says it but I never thought I’d get one, let alone two, three, four, five and then 50 Tests.”The cross-camp links continue because England attack coach Scott Wisemantel is godfather of the son of Nathan Grey, Australia’s defence coach.The match will bring to a conclusion the outstanding broadcasting career of BBC reporter Ian Robertson. Look out for a review of his book, Talking a Good Game, on Rugby World soon.Centurion: Wallaby scrum-half Will Genia training at the Lensbury in Teddington this week (Getty)What’s the big team news?England revert largely to the team that came within a whisker of beating the All Blacks. The only unenforced change from that XV is that Jamie George now starts at hooker, with co-captain Dylan Hartley on the bench.Courtney Lawes is shifted from six to second-row in the absence of injured George Kruis, while Chris Ashton’s calf injury means a second cap for Joe Cokanasiga, the Bath powerhouse.Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi – last capped in March 2016 – has finally been passed fit to play after a groin injury and is named on a bench also featuring Wasps No 8 Nathan Hughes, available following a six-week suspension.In again: wing Joe Cokanasiga marked his England debut with a try against Japan (Visionhaus/Getty)Australia’s major shock is the dropping of Kurtley Beale for disciplinary reasons, with Cheika opting to retain the Matt To’omua-Foley ten-12 pairing that he deployed against Italy in Padova. Beale and veteran wing Adam Ashley-Cooper, 34, both played in that 26-7 win but have been omitted from the match-day squad for breaching team protocol.According to rugby.com.au, the pair invited women back to their hotel after the Test in Cardiff. It’s believed one of the women was Ashley-Cooper’s sister-in-law but the squad has a strict rule that forbids guests to visit players’ hotel rooms.There’s a first start since August for tighthead Sekope Kepu but, as mentioned, Pocock is missing, having played all but one of Australia’s dozen Tests this year.Folau, used on the wing or at 13 in recent months, keeps the 15 shirt that he wore in Italy and wing Jack Maddocks gets a third start in the green and gold, following outings against the Boks and All Blacks in this year’s Rugby Championship.What have the coaches said? England head coach Eddie Jones said: “We’ve picked our best 23. They have a unique style of attack, so our ability to defend that is going to be important. We are continually working on our strengths which is our set-piece and defence, and those areas are progressing nicely.“I’m really happy with the direction we’re going. We are developing a unique style of rugby, which is English and the players are proud to play that way.

We’ve seen growth in the togetherness of the team and I think we’ve seen that in the spirit in which they’ve played.Outstanding leader: co-captain Owen Farrell (Getty Images)“Australia are a traditional rival and we enjoy the occasion of playing them at Twickenham. The spirit of the fans has been outstanding.“The atmosphere during these Quilter Internationals has been the best I’ve experienced and we encourage the fans to be at their robust best at the weekend.”Australia defence coach Nathan Grey said: “We’ve had a really good look at what England are bringing to the table from an attacking perspective and we’ll be well prepared for what we believe their threats are and how they’re going to target us. We’re really looking to execute our defensive systems and take it up another notch.”Any interesting statistics? * England have won the past five meetings – an historic 3-0 whitewash in 2016, followed by wins at Twickenham on the Wallabies’ previous two end-of-year tours.* The last encounter, one year ago, saw England record their biggest-ever victory over the Wallabies – by 30-6.* Will Genia becomes the second Wallaby scrum-half to play 100 Tests. The first, George Gregan, scored 18 tries in 139 Tests – a figure Genia has already equalled in his 99 appearances. However, Gregan’s 68% win success rate far exceeds Genia’s 51%.* Dylan Hartley is poised to make a record 56th international appearance at Twickenham this weekend. He is currently level with Jason Leonard on 55 appearances, with Danny Care the only other player to have notched a Test half-century at the stadium.What time does it kick off and is it on TV?The match at Twickenham kicks off at 3pm UK time on Saturday and is live on Sky Sports. There will also be live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online, and TV highlights on BBC2 at 7.30pm.The referee is 38-year-old South African Jaco Peyper, who was promoted to World Rugby’s elite panel in 2012.

Thought it might be a nice thing to include in this Sunday’s Sermon, given Bishop Sisk’s respectful trip to Canterbury to commemorate the disaster., In fact, it might be nice to share that fact with him ? Best, as always, Mart Hulswit Rector Collierville, TN Submit an Event Listing The Titanic sets out on its fatal voyage in April 1912.[Episcopal News Service] When people mark the 100th anniversary April 15 of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, Anglicans and Episcopalians will be among them.Memorial services are planned on both sides of the Atlantic to commemorate the loss of the 1,514 people who died when the ship sank nearly five days after it left Southampton, England on its maiden crossing bound for New York. Seven hundred and ten people survived after the ship struck an iceberg.In Southampton, Episcopal Diocese of New York Bishop Mark S. Sisk will be a guest of Southampton Bishop Suffragan Jonathan H. Frost at events marking the anniversary. Sisk will preach at the 100th anniversary commemorative service at Southampton’s St. Mary’s Church at 2 p.m. local time on April 15.On Long Island, New York, at St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Sayville the 10 a.m. Eucharist will be dedicated to “in memory of Edith Corse Evans and those aboard the RMS Titanic who perished with her on April 15, 1912,” according to the parish’s website.Evans and her sister, Lena Cadwalader Evans, often spent summers with their grandfather, Israel Corse Jr., in West Sayville, according to the parish’s April newsletter. The family attended St. Ann’s during their stay. Corse donated the funds with which to build the rectory. Evans had booked first-class passage on the great new liner, RMS Titanic for a quick trip home from a family funeral. She gave her place on the last lifeboat to her cousin, who had children waiting at home, according to the newsletter.A reception in the parish hall will feature an exhibit of photographs, books and assorted items about the disaster, as well as speakers from the Titanic Society, St. Ann’s Historical Society and the Long Island Wireless Historical Society. Folk music written and performed after the tragedy will also be featured. Refreshments will include some foods which were on the ship’s menu on April 14, 1912.In Denver, Colorado, the St. Martin’s Chamber Choir will present three concerts titled “Nearer my God to Thee,” including performances on April 14 and 15 at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. The concerts will include Edwardian-era seafaring favorites, as well as works known to have been performed during the voyage, according to the choir’s website. “Nearer my God to Thee” is said to be the last song played by the ship’s musiciansThis weekend’s services will reflect the many memorial events and funerals that took place in the days and weeks after the sinking. For instance, on April 29, 1912 Grace Episcopal Church, Orange, New Jersey, held a service for parishioner W. Anderson Walker, 47, an Englishman who lived in nearby East Orange.And on the same day, Grace Episcopal Church in Elizabeth, New Jersey, held an evening memorial service for Peter R. Renouf, Lawrence Garvey and Clifford and Ernest Jefferys. Renouf and Garvey were communicants of the parish and the Jefferys (ages 22 and 24, respectively) were brothers of Renouf’s wife, Lillian. They were both from Guernsey on Britain’s Channel Islands and were second-class passengers. Renouf, 33, was a carpenter in Elizabeth, and he and his wife were also second-class passengers.Lillian, 31, had been rescued from the Titanic and attended the service, according to a newspaper article. It is said that 90 percent of the men in second class died due to a “women and children first” protocol that left them without seats in the lifeboats.On May 4, 1912, a funeral service was held at Episcopal Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck, New York, for John Jacob Astor, 47, the financier and real-estate developer who died in the sinking. His wife, Madeleine, 18, survived. Astor had been warden of the Rhinebeck church for sixteen years.In New York, the mission of the Episcopal Church-affiliated Seamens Church Institute intersected with the loss of the Titanic. April 16, 1912 had been set for the laying of the cornerstone for a new SCI building on land at Coenties Slip in lower Manhattan, according to SCI Archivist Johnathan Thayer.The ceremony proceeded as planned, with speakers making last minute edits to their speeches to address the tragedy, Thayer wrote recently. SCI took up a collection to donate to the victims’ families and dedicated two of the new building’s bedrooms in honor of the Titanic’s crew.On April 18, the PMS Carpathia reached New York City’s Pier 54 with the Titanic’s survivors, including more than 200 crew members. The American Seamen’s Friend Society hosted the crew, and SCI staff assisted in the distribution of clothing and toiletries to replace the items lost in the wreck, Thayer said. Men received a full suit of clothes, boots and a cap, as well as a razor and comb, while the 20 surviving stewardesses received complete outfits. SCI helped provide refreshments and led a simple church service to mourn the friends and co-workers who did not make it back to shore.One year to the day after the Titanic’s sinking, SCI dedicated the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse on the roof of its completed 12-story headquarters at 25 South Street. The Lighthouse remained until 1968, when SCI moved its headquarters to 15 State Street and the old building was demolished. SCI donated the lighthouse to the South Street Seaport Museum, which installed it on the corner of Fulton and Water streets. Today, SCI is headquartered in the Port of Newark.An online exhibit of SCI materials related to the Titanic’s sinking is here.It is said that the Rev. Thomas Roussel Davids Byles, an Anglican priest turned Roman Catholic, became a hero after the Titanic struck an iceberg off Newfoundland. According to the Canadian Anglican Journal, his sermon during mass for second-place passengers hours before the sinking concerned the need to have a “lifeboat in the shape of religious consolation at hand in case of spiritual shipwreck.”After the collision, Byles, 42, was seen helping third-class passengers up the stairs and into the boats, hearing confessions, granting absolutions, encouraging those being lowered down to the dark Atlantic and praying with the doomed. He was allegedly twice offered a seat in a lifeboat, but he refused and went down with the ship.Byles was on his way to New York to officiate at the wedding of his younger brother, William.

North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry elected as 27th Presiding Bishop

first_img June 27, 2015 at 5:46 pm I preached about “crazy Christians” last Sunday, and hoped and prayed with all my heart that Bishop Curry would be our new PB! What great news!! The Rev. James Abernathey says: Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry, bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina, speaks to a packed House of Deputies hall after deputies confirmed his election as the 27th presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. Curry’s family and others joined him on the dais. Photo: Cynthia L. Black/For ENSEditor’s note: This story was updated at 5:55 p.m. MDT to note historic nature of first-ballot election. [Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City, Utah] The Episcopal Church’s General Convention made history June 27 when it chose Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry to be its 27th presiding bishop.Curry, 62, was elected by the House of Bishops from a slate of four nominees on the first ballot. He received 121 votes of a total 174 cast. Diocese of Southwest Florida Bishop Dabney Smith received 21, Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal, 19, and Diocese of Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, 13. The number of votes needed for election was 89.Curry’s election was confirmed an hour later by the House of Deputies, as outlined in the church’s canons, by a vote of 800 to 12.He will serve a nine-year term that officially begins Nov. 1. On that date, Curry will succeed current Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and he will become the first person of color to hold that position.A liturgy marking the beginning of Curry’s ministry as presiding bishop and primate will be celebrated Nov. 1, All Saints Day at Washington National Cathedral.The House of Deputies, which was filled with visitors and bishops awaiting Curry, erupted into sustained applause when Jefferts Schori and Curry entered at about 2:30 p.m. His entrance came about 30 minutes after the House of Deputies confirmed his election. Deputies stood on their chairs, holding aloft their phones, tablets and cameras to capture the historic moment.“Oh, God love ya,” Curry said when he got to the microphone on the dais. “I know you haven’t had lunch so, no sermons now.”The deputies worked past their scheduled 1 p.m. recess to vote on Curry’s election and hear him speak.“It really is a blessing and privilege to serve our church and to serve our Lord in this way,” he said. “I treasure this church, this house, the House of Bishops, all of us. We are God’s children.”Curry said The Episcopal Church is “the church where I learned about Jesus.”“This is a good and wonderful church and we are good and wonderful people and I thank God to be one of the baptized among you,” Curry said, adding, “My heart is really full.”“We’ve got a society where there are challenges before us and there are crises all around us. And the church has challenges before it,” he said. “We got a God and there really is a Jesus, and we are part of the Jesus Movement. Nothing can stop the movement of God’s love in this world”As Curry left the dais, people in the house sang the Doxology.Curry has been North Carolina’s 11th diocesan bishop since he was ordained and consecrated on June 17, 2000. He was the rector of St. James’ Episcopal Church, Baltimore, Maryland, when he was elected to the see on Feb. 11, 2000. He is also the current chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors.This makes the second time in a row that the General Convention made history with its election of a presiding bishop. In 2006, Jefferts Schori became the first woman ever elected presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. She was also the first female among the primates, or ordained leaders, of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, a distinction she still holds.Curry’s election also made history by being the first time a presiding bishop was chosen on the first ballot.Echoing an old spiritual, Curry said during a video interview after his nomination was announced on May 1 that “our hand must be on the Gospel plow.”“We are followers of Jesus – Jesus of Nazareth – and the truth is we’ve got a message to proclaim, a life to live and something to share and offer the world,” he said. “There’s a lot of suffering in this world. There’s a lot of heartache, there’s a lot of nightmare. We are people who believe that God has a dream and a vision for this world, and that Jesus has shown us how to follow him in the direction of that and how to help this world live into God’s dream and vision for us now.“Our work is actually the work of participating in the Jesus movement, which seeks to realize God’s dream and seeks to accomplish God’s mission in this world,” Curry said.The church must help form disciples who will live like Jesus, Curry said. Such formation must become a priority so that the church is not just creating members, but disciples of Jesus “who actually live out and struggle to live out the teachings of Jesus in their lives, and make a tangible difference” in the world. If such churchwide formation combined with Episcopalians’ individual commitments to imitate Jesus, “we would transform this world,” Curry said.“After formation, there’s evangelism and I know sometimes folks are afraid of that word, but I’m not talking about evangelism like other folk do it,” he said. “I am talking about the kind of evangelism that is as much listening as it is sharing.” Being present with another person and listening to that person is a “transforming possibility” of invitation and welcome.Episcopalians must also be willing to “witness in the social sphere, witness in the public sphere, through personal service that helps somebody along the way … prophesying deliverance … [and] being a voice for those who have no voice,” Curry said.To do this, Episcopalians need to partner with Anglicans around the world along with people of other faith traditions, according to Curry.And “we need to create organizational structures that serve the mission, that help the institution and the church become a vessel of the Jesus movement,” he concluded.The election processThe names of all four bishops were formally submitted to the General Convention by the Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop during a joint session on June 26, the day before the election. There were no additional nominees from the floor during that session.Anyone intending to make such a nomination had to inform the nominating committee of that intention by May 12 so that additional nominees could undergo the same background screening process that the committee completed for all of its nominees. The committee announced on May 12 that no additional bishops were nominated.The four nominees spoke to convention participants during a three-hour session on June 24, the afternoon before the General Convention formally convened.Bishops gathered at the Convention Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. on June 27 in the Salt Palace Convention Center. Following that, the bishops with seat, voice and vote traveled to St. Mark’s Cathedral, where the election session was closed and took place in the context of prayer and reflection.After Curry was elected but before his name was announced, Jefferts Schori sent a delegation to House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings informing her of the result. Jennings referred Curry’s name to the House of Deputies legislative committee on the Confirmation of the Presiding Bishop without announcing the news to the full House. The legislative committee was charged with recommending to the House of Deputies whether to confirm the election or not confirm. The deputies heard the recommendation at 1:48 p.m. local time, and began to debate the confirmation request.The House of Bishops remained in session at the cathedral until a delegation of deputies, appointed by Jennings notified the House of Bishops of the action taken. No communication was permitted from the House of Bishops during the election and until confirmation was received.Shortly after receiving word of the confirmation of his election, Curry came to the House of Deputies.Presiding Bishop-elect Curry will preach at the convention’s closing Eucharist on July 3, and Jefferts Schori will preside.The roles of the presiding bishopThe presiding bishop is primate and chief pastor of the church, chair of the Executive Council, and president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society. The canonical outline of the presiding bishop’s election and term can be found in Title I Section 2 of the church’s Canons.(The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the legal and canonical name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business and carries out mission.)Curry’s election comes near the start of a meeting of General Convention that is considering a number of proposals to change some aspects of the governance and management of the church-wide structure and, hence, the roles and responsibilities of the presiding bishop.According to Title I Section 2 in its current form, the presiding bishop is “charged with responsibility for leadership in initiating and developing the policy and strategy in the church and speaking for the Church as to the policies, strategies and programs authorized by the General Convention.”The presiding bishop also “speaks God’s word to the church and world as the representative of this Church and its episcopate in its corporate capacity,” represents The Episcopal Church to the Anglican Communion, serves as chief consecrator of bishops, and leads the House of Bishops. He or she also holds a significant role in the discipline and changes in status of bishops.Also, the presiding bishop exercises a significant role in the governance of the church by making appointments to various governing bodies, making decisions with the president of the House of Deputies, serving as a member of every churchwide committee and commission, and serving as chair and president of key church governing boards. He or she is the chief executive officer of the Executive Council, which carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). Therefore, the presiding bishop is responsible for staff and operations of the Episcopal Church Center, with the exception of the executive office of the General Convention.In its “Call to Discernment and Profile”, the joint nominating committee said the 27th presiding bishop would need to be “comfortable in the midst of ambiguity and able to lead the church in the rich, temporal space between the ‘now,’ and the ‘yet to come.’” The person discerned and elected by the church would need to “delight” in the diversity of a “multi-national, multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational church.” And, because “our polity has many components and complexities,” the 27th presiding bishop will need the “skills and wisdom for leading complex and democratic systems through a time of significant change.”Historically, the office of presiding bishop was filled automatically by the most senior bishop in the House of Bishops, measured by date of consecration, beginning with the presidency of William White at the first session of the 1789 General Convention. That process changed in 1925 when the church elected the Rt. Rev. John Gardner Murray as the 16th presiding bishop.Presiding Bishop-elect Curry’s past ministryBorn in Chicago, Illinois, on March 13, 1953, Curry attended public schools in Buffalo, New York, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975 from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, in Geneva, New York, and a Master of Divinity degree in 1978 from the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. He has also studied at the College of Preachers, Princeton Theological Seminary, Wake Forest University, the Ecumenical Institute at St. Mary’s Seminary, and the Institute of Christian Jewish Studies.He was ordained to the diaconate in June 1978 at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buffalo, New York, and to the priesthood in December 1978, at St. Stephen’s, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He began his ministry as deacon-in-charge at St. Stephen’s, and was rector there 1979-1982. He next accepted a call to serve as the rector of St. Simon of Cyrene, Lincoln Heights, Ohio, where he served 1982-1988. In 1988, he became rector of St. James’, Baltimore, Maryland, where he served until his election as bishop.      In his three parish ministries, Curry was active in the founding of ecumenical summer day camps for children, the creation of networks of family day care providers and educational centers, and the brokering of millions of dollars of investment in inner city neighborhoods. He also sat on the commission on ministry in each of the three dioceses in which he has served.During his time as bishop of North Carolina, Curry instituted a network of canons, deacons and youth ministry professionals dedicated to supporting the ministry that already happens in local congregations and refocused the diocese on The Episcopal Church’s dedication to the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals through a $400,000 campaign to buy malaria nets that saved thousands of lives.Throughout his ministry, Curry has also been active in issues of social justice, speaking out on immigration policy and marriage equality.He serves on the boards of a large number of organizations and has a national preaching and teaching ministry. He has been featured on The Protestant Hour and North Carolina Public Radio’s The State of Things, as well as on The Huffington Post. In addition, Curry is a frequent speaker at conferences around the country. He has received honorary degrees from Sewanee, Virginia Theological Seminary, Yale, and, most recently, Episcopal Divinity School. He served on the Taskforce for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church and recently was named chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors.His book of sermons, Crazy Christians, came out in August 2013.Curry and his wife, Sharon, have two adult daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Zambia recibe al CCA con una liturgia afroanglicana

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Lusaka, Zambia] Servir al mundo mientras representamos el amor y la unidad en la imitación de Cristo fue el abrumador mensaje del oficio eucarístico de cinco horas de duración el 10 de abril que inauguró oficialmente la 16ª. reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano.Los miembros del CCA comenzaron a reunirse dos días antes, pero en esta eucaristía fueron acogidos y festejados por anglicanos de todas partes de la Iglesia de la Provincia de África Central. Se calcula que entre 4.000 y 5.000 personas asistieron al oficio en que el presidente zambiano Edgar Chagwa Lungu y el primer presidente de Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda, se unieron a funcionarios del gobierno y a ciudadanos de los cuatro países de la provincia anglicana.El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby observa el 10 de abril como uno de los líderes de las brigadas de la Iglesia Anglicana de Lusaka enfunda su espada al prepararse para hacer que rompa filas la guardia uniformada del oficio casi al final de la eucaristía de clausura del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano de cinco horas de duración. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Al arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, que fue el predicador, lo saludaron frecuentemente con gritos y ululaciones durante el oficio. Welby tuvo el inusual papel litúrgico de darle permiso a un oficial de las brigadas de la Iglesia que portaba una espada para que la guardia uniformada con las banderas de los países de la provincia y de toda la Comunión Anglicana pudiera entrar en el espacio de culto. Él luego recibió las banderas de Zambia, Zimbabue, Malawi y Botsuana. Casi al final del oficio, le pidieron permiso para retirar la guardia, y al concederlo, devolvió las cuatro banderas.En el ínterin, hubo incienso y tambores africanos; cánticos modernos e himnos antiguos; bandas de metales y música amplificada. La gran danza irrumpió en muchas ocasiones, entre ellas durante el rito de la paz, cuando Lungu se unió a ella, junto con su servicio de seguridad y un tumulto de fotógrafos.Tres niñas recitaron de memoria un largo poema acerca del CCA cuyo estribillo era “El amor nunca fracasará mientras el CCA una a la Iglesia”.Albert Chama, arzobispo de África Central fue el celebrante, y el obispo William Mchombo, secretario provincial, el oficiante.La lluvia había amenazado los planes de celebrar la eucaristía al aire libre, pero prevaleció un clima seco y parcialmente nublado, y el altar se quedó puesto en el pórtico de la catedral de la Santa Cruz [Cathedral of the Holy Cross]. La congregación se reunió en tiendas levantadas sobre los céspedes que rodean la iglesia en la colina de la Catedral, en el barrio de Lusaka que incluye también los organismos del gobierno y la embajadas. El plan alternativo en caso de lluvia era trasladar al grupo del altar, los miembros del CCA y los dignatarios dentro de la catedral, mientras el resto de la congregación permanecía bajo las tiendas.Durante su sermón, Welby dijo que todas las lecturas del día (Deuteronomio 6:6-16, Salmo 1:1-6; Efesios 4:8-16 y la Gran Comisión que Jesús da en Mateo 28:16-20) apuntan a la manera en que los cristianos deben contar sus historias, vivir sus vidas en el presente y llevar a otros a Cristo. En un sermón dirigido a los miembros del CCA, a los miembros de la provincia anfitriona y a funcionarios del gobierno, entre otros, Welby abordó el tema de la política y las elecciones, el servicio al mundo y el valor de ser veraz respecto a la propia historia en lugar de usarla para fomentar el odio.Recordando que lo último que Jesús hizo fue enviar a sus discípulos al mundo y que uno de sus predecesores, William temple, dijo que la Iglesia existe para los que no son sus miembros, Welby dijo: “Demostramos que venimos de parte de Cristo cuando salimos en servicio humilde y jubiloso”.Somos el cuerpo maduro de Cristo que Pablo describió en el pasaje de Efesios cuando nos regocijamos en el culto y estamos llenos de amor, cuando no somos críticos, cuando no incurrimos en la costumbre de la Iglesia antigua de lanzar piedras al débil y de adular a los orgullosos y a los fuertes”, afirmó el Arzobispo. “Y eso es algo muy difícil de hacer para todos nosotros en la Iglesia o en el gobierno”.“¿Está nuestro mensaje tan lleno de la serena Esperanza de Cristo que creamos sociedades de esperanza?, preguntó él. “¿Hay en nosotros tanto de las buenas nuevas que inconscientemente tratamos de llevar a las personas a conocer a ese Jesús que nos ha llenado de gozo y esperanza?”Welby también se refirió al llamado del obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Michael Curry a que la gente se una al Movimiento de Jesús, diciendo que cuando contamos las historias de nuestras vidas individuales y colectivas —incluso si esas historias son de dolor y pérdida— las historias deben estar centradas en Jesús y su amor reconciliador.Eso no significa, dijo el Arzobispo, que no tendremos “debates y discusiones y llamados a la necesidad de resistir la doctrina errónea y llamados a la unidad de la fe, pero sólo discerniremos lo correcto de lo erróneo cuando escuchemos en amor”.“Carecemos de rectitud cuando sugerimos que el poder y el liderazgo de la Iglesia, ya sea localmente o a través del mundo, sólo existe para beneficio de los vencedores”, afirmó. “De manera que nuestra historia como Iglesia, según prosigue para ser implementada por este CCA, debe estar centrada en Dios y motivada por la búsqueda de la justicia”.El Rdo. Samson Mwanza interpretó el sermón del arzobispo al cheuá, un idioma bantú que se habla en Malawi, Zambia y Zimbabue.El presidente zambiano Edgar Chagwa Lungu, al centro, revisa la guardia de honor presentada por las brigadas de la Iglesia Anglicana de Lusaka después de la eucaristía de apertura del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano. El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, que también pasó revista al grupo, se asoma sobre el hombro izquierdo del Presidente. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Casi al final del oficio, el presidente Lungu dijo que la reunión “es un gran honor para nosotros como nación”.El hecho de que el CCA reúna a arzobispos, obispos, clérigos y laicos de diferentes procedencias y países bajo un mismo techo “refuerza el carácter mismo del cristianismo como unificador de la humanidad”, dijo el Presidente.Lungu llamó la reunión del CCA “un símbolo de unidad y de amor en un mundo de conflicto, divisiones y diferencias” y dijo que es también “un testimonio de que pese a nuestras diferentes nacionalidades, aun podemos coexistir”“Si hay una gran lección que la religión puede prestarle a la política, es el efecto unificador de la tolerancia como virtud”, afirmó.El presidente recordó que la Iglesia ha desempeñado un “papel fundamental” en el desarrollo de Zambia durante sus 51 años de independencia. Lungu dijo que quería rendir un “brillante tributo” a la Iglesia Anglicana en Zambia por haber sido un asociado a lo largo de todos esos años.El primer presidente de Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda, de 91 años, en primer plano, abandona su lugar de honor en la catedral de la Santa Cruz en Lusaka, el 10 de abril, después de la eucaristía de apertura del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.“Ustedes han sido valiosos aliados de todos los sucesivos gobiernos zambianos y los saludamos por eso y estamos dispuestos a apoyar sus labores”, dijo Lungu. “Su asociación con nosotros en educación, salud y buen gobierno sigue siendo vuestro testimonio cristiano”.Él destacó [el papel de] la catedral de la Santa Cruz por ofrecer lo que llamó “la plataforma y la atmósfera indispensables y propicias” para la obra que logró el regreso de Zambia a la democracia pluripartidista en 1991. Zambia, dijo él, se ha convertido en un modelo de la paz y la unidad en África.Luego de un almuerzo en los terrenos de la catedral, las festividades del día continuaron con una celebración provincial durante la cual a los miembros del CCA se les brindó información acerca de cada uno de los cuatro países de la provincia —Botsuana, Malawi, Zambia y Zimbabue— y la vida de la Iglesia Anglicana en cada uno de esos lugares.La 16ª. reunión del CCA se extiende hasta el 19 de abril.Antecedentes del CCAEl CCA es uno de los cuatro instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros tres el arzobispo de Cantórbery (que preside el CCA), la Conferencia de Lambeth de los Obispos Anglicanos y la Reunión de los Primados.Creado en 1969, el CCA incluye entre sus delegados a clérigos y laicos, así como a obispos. La membresía incluye de una a tres personas de cada una de las 38 provincias de la Comunión Anglicana. [La delegación] que tiene tres miembros, consta de un obispo, un sacerdote y un laico. En la que cuenta con menos miembros, la preferencia se le da a los laicos. La constitución del CCA se encuentra aquí.El Consejo por lo general se reúne cada tres o cuatro años. La primera reunión se celebró en Limurú, Kenia, en 1971. La última reunión del CCA sesionó a fines de 2012 en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda. El CCA no se ha reunido en África desde su novena reunión en Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, en 1993.La Iglesia Episcopal está representada por Rosalie Ballentine, de la Diócesis de Islas Vírgenes; la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, de Ohio, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y el obispo Ian Douglas, de Connecticut.La información actualizada de ENS sobre el CCA puede encontrarse aquí.La página de noticias de la Cámara de Diputados también está publicando artículos sobre la reunión.A los comunicados de Twitter se accede con #ACCLusaka.– La Rda.
