I suspect Fr. Walke’s friend was a hall mate. In re the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, some of their bishops made valiant and lasting stands against segregation.I have a hard time believing the suspected incident was approved by Bishop which would normally be the case in an Episcopal school. However, I certainly can’t say for certain what actually happened. (I wasn’t there.)

Canon Susan Ellyn Goff was elected April 21 as bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.Goff, 58, canon to the ordinary of the Diocese of Virginia, was elected on the fourth ballot out of a field of three nominees. Two other nominees withdrew after the second ballot and another withdrew after the third. Goff received 148 votes of 207 cast in the clergy order and 164 of 258 cast in the lay order. An election on that ballot required 104 votes in the clergy order and 130 in the lay order.The election was held at a meeting of a special council for the election of a bishop suffragan at St. George’s Church in Fredericksburg.Goff will serve under the Rt. Rev. Shannon S. Johnston, bishop of the Diocese of Virginia, who was consecrated in 2007. The Rt. Rev. Edwin F. “Ted” Gulick Jr. serves as assisting bishop.“I am excited to be able to welcome Susan to the Virginia episcopate,” Johnston said after the election. “In her work as canon to the ordinary, she brings much wisdom, grace and discretion, qualities that I know will translate well in the role of bishop suffragan.”Goff previously was rector of St. Christopher’s in Springfield, rector of Immanuel, Old Church, in Mechanicsville, chaplain of St. Catherine’s School in Richmond and chaplain of St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock. She also taught liturgics and trained seminarian supervisors at Virginia Theological Seminary.She is a graduate of Douglass College, New Brunswick, New Jersey, and Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and has been ordained 31 years. She is married to the Rev. Tom Holliday.Because the election took place within 120 days of a meeting of General Convention, the House of Deputies and a majority of bishops with jurisdiction must consent to the election during their meeting in Indianapolis in July 2012.Pending the necessary consents, the consecration is planned for July 28 at St. Paul’s Church, Richmond. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will be chief consecrator.The other nominees were:The Rev. Randy Alexander, 45, rector, Christ Church, Pelham, New York (Diocese of New York)The Very Rev. David May, 52, rector, Grace Church, Kilmarnock, Virginia (Diocese of Virginia)The Very Rev. Dr. Hilary Smith, 43, rector, St. Paul’s on-the-Hill, Winchester, Virginia (Diocese of Virginia)The Very Rev. Shirley Smith Graham, 43, rector, St. Martin’s, Williamsburg, Virginia (Diocese of Southern Virginia)The Rev. Canon Sue Sommer, 55, subdean and canon pastor, Grace & Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City, Missouri (Diocese of West Missouri).“We are most grateful to all six of the candidates for journeying with us through this process,” said Johnston. “They all displayed an immense amount of faith, dedication and good spirit.”Information about all the nominees is available here.The Diocese of Virginia, organized in 1785, is the largest Episcopal diocese within the United States, with some 80,000 members of 181 congregations located in 38 counties in central, northern and northwestern Virginia.

As one who attended Virginia Episcopal School from 1954 to 1958, went on to Hobart College in Geneva NY, was a co-founder of St. Michael’s Montessori School in New York City in the 1960’s, and then went on to become Executive Director Emeritus of the Episcopal Actors’ Guild in NYC , this is, to me, a manifestation of the wonderfully progressive Episcopal Church I have been following lovingly all of my life! What progress we have made since the days of The Rev. Roger Walke, briefly the Headmaster of VES, who invited his “Negro” fellow priest roommate from Virginia Seminary to attend his Ordination at St. John’s in Lynchburg, and was dismissed as Headmaster a few years later, very probably for having done so! The fact that Virginia now has a female Bishop coming up gives me great hope that my two grand-daughters, both baptized in the Episcopal Church at NYC’s ” Little Church Around the Corner,” and both now residing in Chesapeake, VA, will fall in love, during their lives, with the same wonderful Episcopal Church as did I !!

Anglican dean of Nepal: Relief and rebuilding work is ‘mammoth’

first_img Rector Smithfield, NC Press Release Service AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Posted May 27, 2015 The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Albany, NY Submit a Job Listing Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Anglican Alliance] Two weeks after the second earthquake, the extent of the devastation is emerging in Nepal. Eight million people have been affected by the earthquakes, more than 8,600 people have been killed, 16,808 people reported injured and more than 750,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged, according to latest UNOCHA figures (18 May 2015).A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25 with the epicentre about 50 miles north-west of the capital, Kathmandu. Tremors were felt across the region and aftershocks affected the area for several days. A second earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.3, struck Dolakha district, 100 miles east of Kathmandu on 12 May. Powerful aftershocks continued for hours, including 5.6 and 6.3 magnitude tremors. The area, already affected by the first earthquake, suffered additional casualties and further destruction to buildings and homes.In several districts (Sindhupalchowk, Nuwakot and Dolakha), more that 95% of people have had their homes destroyed, according to MapAction, May 15. Even in less affected areas people can’t shelter in  buildings that are still standing, because of the risk of further aftershocks. Thousands are living out in the open, exposed to the elements both the cold and the rain.According to a May 19 Ministry of Health and Population report, out of a total of 1,100 health facilities in the region, 427 are completely destroyed and 673 have been damaged.Humanitarian situationAn immediate priority has been for emergency shelter as the monsoon season begins in June and it is already raining. While over 175,000 tarpaulins and 8,000 tents had been distributed (UNOCHA May 18), communities in remote and hard to reach areas are still to be helped with high quality tarpaulins, tools and household items (including blankets).The government has organized a district authority-led rapid multi-sectoral assessment across Village Development Committees (VDC) to learn about the situation in all affected districts. In addition to shelter, food, clean water and sanitation, household items and hygiene kits are top priorities.UN World Food Program (WFP) report that the window of opportunity—just weeks before the onset of the monsoon—to deliver life-saving food, shelter and medical supplies is closing rapidly for people living high up in the mountains with no road access. Once the monsoon rains begin, access to the high-lying villages will be seriously curtailed.WFP is racing against the clock to deliver food and assist other organizations in delivering shelter materials by helicopter, trucks, tractors and, starting this week, approximately 20,000 local porters who will trek into some of the remotest villages carrying food and shelter on their backs.News from Deanery of NepalThe Very Rev. Lewis Lew, Dean of Nepal, was distributing rice and supplies in Godarwari, 35 miles south-west of the epicenter, Namche Bazaar when the second earthquake hit. He reports that “this second quake devastated the hope of many Nepalese who thought things were getting better and that the country was on the road to recovery, after the first quake… I could see in the eyes of the villagers; fear, frustration and in some the anger that so little has been done for them. Once again, they are plunged into great despair. Although the second quake had been smaller in scale, the people looked more affected. There are also more damages to buildings, roads, and to an already weak economy.”“All over the place, we could see the people trooping out into the open, to once again set up tents and temporary shelters, getting ready for more after shocks. For many, they were just fearful of being caught in crumbling buildings, as many of the after shocks were equally sizeable to the quake itself, with some measuring up to 6.3. Some buildings that survived the first quake had unfortunately failed in the second.”Once Dean Lew returned to the capital Kathmandu he said, “We could hear the sound of sirens filled the air. Ambulances from all directions were rushing the injured to the hospitals. We could also see the long lines of injured outside the hospitals.  It was like a scene in the war movie; except that this is real. As the aftershocks continued through the day and night, the people began to camp out in the open braving the cold nights.”He continues “with 8 million people throughout Nepal affected, 530,000 houses destroyed across 39 of Nepal’s 75 districts, the relief and rebuilding work is mammoth, and it will be for the long haul. Our deanery’s immediate response is to provide food supplies and temporary shelter to help the people cope with the monsoon that will last till mid September. After which, we will focus on helping with the rebuilding in the district of Dhading, where we have more than 50% of our Anglican members. This rebuilding phase could take between 18 months to 3 years.”Trafficking concernThere is real concern that Nepal quake survivors face threat from human traffickers supplying the sex trade, according to a Guardian report. NGOs fear that criminal networks will use the cover of the rescue effort to target poor rural communities from which an estimated 15,000 girls are already trafficked a year.Girls and young women in these communities have long been targeted by traffickers, who abduct them and force them into sex work. Some are taken abroad to East Asia, and beyond. But the majority end up in Indian brothels where tens of thousands are working in appalling conditions.Sometimes, the enslavement of people impoverished by an emergency is portrayed as an act of charity, for example giving a child “a roof over their head” as a domestic slave; or the hope of already poor people for a better life is used against them with the deception of falsely offering decent work abroad.There is great need at this time for awareness of these risks within the community to protect not just children but everyone who, already poor, have been made even more vulnerable to the danger of trafficking. This issue is looked at in depth in another recent Guardian report.Dean Lew writes “In a sinister new development parents are being urged to protect children from roaming gangs of ruthless human traffickers, who, it is reported, can earn $570 for every girl or boy they supply.”“At least 950,000 children in Nepal are in makeshift tents, on the streets or simply out of school and will not be able to return for months unless urgent action is taken.”“With all classrooms closed until May 29, in a country, which in recent years has lost 200,000 girls to cross-border trafficking and exploitation, fears are now growing that children consigned to the streets or camps may be easy prey.”Response supportThe Diocese of Singapore, through its crisis relief ministry Anglican Crisis Relief, Outreach & Support, Singapore (ACROSS) has sent a medical team to Nepal and more are being planned.Dean Lew says “I am extremely thankful for the support of our partners from other Dioceses, Mission Agencies, our Mission Deaneries and our local parishes. Thank you for giving to the Nepal Relief Fund. To date, we have received a total of $245,000 and we need more to meet the demand of the rebuilding before us.”Information about how to support the Deanery of Nepal, including points for prayer, can be found on the Diocese of Singapore website.Visit the Anglican Alliance website for more prayers for Nepal and information about Anglican agencies supporting the people of Nepal through response appeals.Share prayers for Nepal on the Prayer Wall of the Anglican Communion website.

Samuel Rodman was elected XII bishop diocesan of the Diocese of North Carolina on March 4.He was elected on the third ballot by the delegates gathered for a Special Electing Convention in Phillips Chapel at Canterbury School in Greensboro, North Carolina.Samuel Rodman is scheduled to be ordained and consecrated as the bishop diocesan of the Diocese of North Carolina on July 15. Photo: Diocese of North Carolina“I am deeply honored and grateful and, with God’s help, I accept this call to be your next bishop diocesan,” Rodman said. “The prospect of following and building upon the leadership and legacy of Bishop Michael Curry is both humbling and inspiring. I trust that the Holy Spirit, moving through the Diocese of North Carolina, will continue to light the way and guide our path together.”Rodman currently serves as the special projects officer for the Diocese of Massachusetts, a role he took on after spending five years as the diocesan project manager for campaign initiatives, where he engaged congregations, clergy and laity, in collaborative local and global mission through the Together Now campaign, helping to raise $20 million to fund these initiatives. Prior to that, Rodman spent 16 years as the rector of St. Michael’s in Milton, Massachusetts, during which the parish established a seven-year plan that included a capital campaign for a major renovation of the church building.The election is the culmination of a process that began when the Diocese of North Carolina’s former bishop, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, was elected presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church at the 78th General Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, in June 2015. Since his installation in November 2015, the diocese has been led by the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple; elected bishop suffragan in the Diocese of North Carolina in 2013, she has served as bishop diocesan pro tempore during the extensive search.Four nominees were a part of the search process. In addition to Rodman, the other three candidates were:The Rev. George Adamik – St. Paul’s, Cary, North CarolinaThe Rev. Charles T. Dupree – Trinity Episcopal Church, Bloomington, IndianaThe Rev. Canon Michael Buerkel Hunn – The Episcopal Church, New York, New YorkFollowing the announcement of the final slate, Rodman and his fellow candidates spent a great deal of time sharing information with the people of North Carolina, including personal statements, biographies, theological reflections and a Q&A. The candidates each created an introductory video to share, and then took part in a series of virtual town halls, whereby each candidate was live online for an hour, answering questions submitted by people from around the diocese. The finale came when the candidates arrived in North Carolina to do a 12-stop tour around the state, taking part in panel discussions or town halls at each one.Ordained in 1988, Rodman is a graduate of Bates College and Virginia Theological Seminary. He is married to Deborah Rodman, and they are the parents of two adult daughters. In his free time, Rodman enjoys basketball, golf, kayaking, walking his dog, crosswords and creative writing.The Diocese of North Carolina is comprised of 48,000 people gathered into 112 congregations and nine campus ministries throughout 38 counties in the central part of North Carolina. The diocesan vision is to be a community of disciples committed to following Jesus Christ into the dream of God.Pending the canonically required consent of a majority of the Episcopal Church’s diocesan standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction, Rodman will be ordained and consecrated as the XII Bishop Diocesan of the Diocese of North Carolina on July 15 at the Duke University Chapel in Durham, North Carolina.

La pancarta será desplegada desde un puente de Fairbanks el 23 de septiembre durante uno de los diversos eventos y viajes programados sobre los temas del cuidado de la creación y la justicia medioambiental. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Fairbanks, Alaska] Los obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal se reunieron en esta pequeña ciudad situada en el centro del páramo norte de Alaska para la reunión de seis días de la Cámara de Obispos y para sumergirse en ejemplos locales del cuidado de la creación y reconciliación racial.No hay mejor lugar que Alaska para debatir temas de justicia medioambiental y racial, dijo a Episcopal News Service el obispo de Alaska Mat Lattime el 21 de septiembre a mediados del primer día de la reunión.“Alaska es vuestro laboratorio”, dijo Lattime. “Este es el laboratorio para experimentar eso y ver eso”.Dos ancianos nativos, Will Mayo y Steve Ginnis, estaban junto al obispo primado Michael Curry en el momento de darle la bienvenida a los obispos al tiempo que iniciaban la primera mañana en el hotel y centro de convenciones Westmark Fairbanks. Mayo es un ex presidente de la Conferencia de Jefes de Tanana. Ginnis es director ejecutivo de la Asociación de Nativos de Fairbanks.La reunión incluirá debates sobre cómo la cambiante cultura de Alaska está teniendo un impacto en el medioambiente y en el modo de vida de los pueblos indígenas, y los obispos viajarán durante el fin de semana para visitar aldeas y congregaciones y para oír sus historias de primera mano.“Estar aquí en Alaska y escuchar al pueblo de Alaska y aprender de él… ayuda a que la palabra se haga carne para nosotros”, dijo Curry a ENS el 22 de septiembre luego de presentaciones sobre cultura y recursos naturales nativos alasqueños como el Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre en el Ártico.“Para el Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre en el Ártico y el pueblo gwinche proteger la tierra, que es sagrada para ellos, de la explotación y de la perforación petrolífera no es una mera idea abstracta”, continuó Curry. “Las leyes sagradas y las vidas espirituales de las personas están en juego. Y al encontrarnos aquí lo experimentamos”.Mientras los obispos absorben tanta experiencia de Alaska como pueden del 21 al 26 de septiembre, la propia magnitud del estado puede resultar abrumadora.Alaska, con dos veces y medio el tamaño de Texas, constituye una sexta parte de la masa geográfica de Estados Unidos. Al mismo tiempo, tiene menos de 1 millón de habitantes, la mitad de los cuales vive en una sola ciudad, Anchorage. La mayor parte del estado es, pues, una mezcla de páramo intocado y de diminutas aldeas nativas que han luchado para mantener sus tradiciones de vivir de la tierra.El río Tanana corre al pie de las colinas al oeste de Fairbanks, una ciudad de unos 32.000 habitantes en la región interior de Alaska. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.Es un estado “tan vasto y despoblado que si a alguien se le ocurriera robarse a Italia, Alaska sería un lugar para esconderla”, dijo una vez el escritor John McPhee, quien describió Fairbanks como “la capital de facto del terreno que se llama el Interior… el eje desde el cual los viajeros se dispersan hacia el norte”.La abrumadora tarea de ministrar a los episcopales a través de una diócesis tan inmensa se hizo evidente el primer día en la Cámara de Obispos con la proyección de una película producida por la Iglesia Episcopal acerca del obispo William Gordon, que dirigió la Diócesis de Alaska de 1948 a 1974.Gordon aprendió a volar para poder pilotear su avioneta a través del estado a fin de visitar las congregaciones, lo cual le ganó el apodo de “obispo volador”. Los obispos vieron la película sobre Gordon en el Centro Cultural y de Visitantes Morris Thompson, donde el avión de Gordon cuelga del techo cerca de la entrada.Durante el largo tiempo que estuvo al frente de la Diócesis de Alaska, el obispo William Gordon volaba alrededor de la diócesis en esta avioneta, que ahora se exhibe en el Centro Cultural y de Visitantes Morris Thompson en Fairbanks. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.Esta es la primera reunión de la Cámara de Obispos que se celebra en la Diócesis de Alaska, dijo Lattime, a la que asisten alrededor de 115 obispos, algunos de ellos acompañados de sus cónyuges. La ex obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, predecesora de Curry, participa en Fairbanks en su nuevo papel como obispa auxiliar de la Diócesis de San Diego.El 23 de septiembre, pequeños grupos de obispos y cónyuges se dividirán en grupos y se dirigirán al norte para visitar las aldeas de Allakaket, Beaver, Eagle, Fort Yukon, Huslia, Tanana, Venetie y Arctic Village. Esta última se encuentra en el límite sur del Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre en el Ártico. Proteger el refugio federal de la perforación petrolífera ha sido una prioridad tanto de los conservacionistas como de los activistas pro derechos indígenas de Alaska. La Iglesia Episcopal se ha incorporado a ese activismo.Luego, el 24 de septiembre, los obispos se dividirán en tres grupos, esta vez para dirigirse a tres diferentes iglesias episcopales de la zona de Fairbanks a fin de asistir a los oficios del domingo. Los obispos volverán a reunirse como un solo grupo esa noche para un potlatch en la iglesia episcopal de San Marcos [St. Mark’s Episcopal Church] in Nenana.Un potlatch es evento y comida ceremonial de los nativos alasqueños en el que suele incluirse comida tradicional, tambores y danzas.“Es realmente la forma esencial de la hospitalidad”, dijo Lattime. “Todo el mundo es bienvenido. Todo el mundo se va lleno, y no sólo respecto a la comida”.Los obispos esperan integrar los temas de la protección de la creación de Dios y del respeto a la dignidad de todo ser humano en las sesiones del 25 de septiembre que identificarán “los modos de llevar consigo la experiencia de Alaska a las diócesis de donde provienen”.La reunión de la Cámara de Obispos concluye el 26 de septiembre con una sesión de trabajo, una eucaristía y una cena de clausura.Los huracanes en el Caribe y en el Costa del Golfo de EE.UU. han mermado ligeramente la participación, debido a que tres obispos de Texas y dos de la Florida permanecieron en sus devastadas diócesis luego del paso de los huracanes Harvey e Irma.Además, el obispo Rafael Morales, de Puerto Rico, canceló planes para asistir a la reunión después que el huracán María dejara sin energía eléctrica todo el territorio de la isla. El obispo Julio Holguín, de la República Dominicana, también se esperaba que pasara por alto la reunión.Durante la eucaristía del 21 de septiembre, Curry ofreció oraciones por las personas de esas diócesis, así como por las víctimas de un terremoto de importancia que sacudió a México esta semana.El obispo primado Michael Curry preside la eucaristía en Fairbanks, Alaska, el 21 de septiembre. Detrás de él se encuentra el obispo de Alaska Mark Lattime y, sentado al lado suyo, está el obispo Todd Ousley de la Oficina de Desarrollo Pastoral. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.Los obispos también se tomaron un momento en el oficio para darle la bienvenida al Rvdmo. Todd Ousley como el nuevo obispo de la Oficina de Desarrollo Pastoral de la Iglesia Episcopal. Ousley predicó el sermón del oficio, en el que llamó a los obispos “compañeros publicanos y pecadores” semejantes a los que Jesús invitó a su mesa.“En un acto de indómita y generosa hospitalidad, hemos sido invitados a partir el pan con Jesús y los unos con los otros”, dijo Ousley, predicando sobre el tema de la hospitalidad. “Un ministerio de hospitalidad episcopal es tanto una labor de justicia como de generosidad”.–David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

El Obispo primado Curry reflexiona Sobre la Reunión de los Primados…

first_img Submit an Event Listing Al término de su reunión, el Rvdmo. Michael B. Curry, obispo presiente y primado de la Iglesia Episcopal ofrece una reflexión sobre las decisiones y debates de los primados de la Comunión Anglicana.Un vídeo de las palabras del obispo primado Curry se encuentran aquí.Los primados se reunieron en la catedral de Cantórbery, Inglaterra, del 2 al 6 de octubre.Información sobre la Reunión de los Primados se encuentra aquí.Información sobre la Comunión Anglicana se encuentra aquí.Lo que sigue es el texto de la reflexión del Obispo Primado en la Reunión de los Primados de la Comunión Anglicana: Estoy aquí en la catedral de Cantórbery, la iglesia madre de la Comunión Anglicana, donde el arzobispo de Cantórbery ha reunido y congregado a los primados de la Comunión. Acabamos de concluir lo que fue una significativa, una hermosa y, ciertamente, una santa reunión de los primados de nuestra Comunión. Concluimos nuestro tiempo juntos lavándonos los pies unos a otros, siguiendo la enseñanza y el ejemplo de nuestro Señor y Salvador, Jesucristo.Esto no fue sólo un encuentro. Esto no fue sólo una reunión. Esto fue, como un amigo mío suele decir, una santa convocación. Nos congregamos en el nombre de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, e hicimos nuestro trabajo juntos en acuerdo y desacuerdo, siguiendo su espíritu y en su espíritu. Al principio, comenzamos con un retiro dirigido por el arzobispo de Cantórbery con meditaciones y largos períodos de silencio donde oramos porque el espíritu de Dios morara en nosotros y nos condujera.Poco después, entramos en un tiempo de explorar asuntos de gran interés para la Iglesia, asuntos internos, preparación para la [Conferencia de] Lambeth 2020 y la reunión de los obispos de nuestra Comunión, el debate de cómo se desenvolvería y algunos planes preliminares.Continuamos a lo largo de una jornada debatiendo, con alguna extensión y con alguna profundidad y genuina sinceridad y caridad cristiana, las decisiones de nuestros hermanos y hermanas de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa de adoptar medidas para que miembros del mismo sexo recibieran la bendición del matrimonio.Luego proseguimos y entramos a discutir durante los próximos días  los modos en que la Iglesia puede seguir a Jesucristo en el mundo como su testigo. Debatimos extensamente la realidad y la necesidad de los anglicanos a través del mundo de vivir realmente como discípulos del Señor Jesucristo, siguiendo sus pisadas y viviendo sus enseñanzas y su espíritu. Debatimos los modos prácticos de ayudar a que nuestra Iglesia llegue a estar más centrada en el discipulado y que genuinamente tome en serio la Gran Comisión de hacer discípulos de todas las naciones. Eso entonces nos llevó a una larga y extensa conversación acerca de la evangelización en y por la Comunión Anglicana en el mundo, invitando a otros a esa relación con Cristo, compartiendo nuestros relatos y nuestras trayectorias con nuestro Dios.Pasamos luego a debatir el medioambiente en que vivimos —el mundo creado de Dios— y a escuchar las historias del impacto del cambio climático en las vidas de nuestros hermanos anglicanos y de [todos] los seres humanos a través del mundo, especialmente en el mundo en desarrollo. Oímos historias de carestía de alimentos. Oímos historias de climas implacables que ahora son un peligro y que les impiden a las personas tener la clase de vida abundante a que todos estamos destinados.En medio de este período, tuvo lugar la masacre de Las Vegas y debo decirles que mis hermanos primados se reunieron en torno a mí y oraron. Se reunieron en torno a mí y en torno a ustedes. Oramos y redactamos una declaración, y anhelamos el día en que en nuestro país no veamos muertes por armas de fuego.Después, continuamos dedicados al mundo con mucha mayor profundidad. Abordamos los problemas de migración e inmigración, de trata de seres humanos, y oímos testimonios de todo el ámbito de la Comunión Anglicana de cómo la Iglesia está realmente intentando hacer el mundo de Dios humano y habitable para todos los hijos de Dios.Seguimos luego debatiendo muchas cosas que tienen que ver con la vida diaria del mundo. Pasamos la mayor parte de nuestro tiempo, para ser muy sincero, no dedicados a hablar de las cosas internas de la Iglesia, sino de las cosas externas, donde la Iglesia puede aportar su ministerio que conlleva seguir a Jesús.Esta fue una reunión donde, en las palabras del difundo arzobispo William Temple, en verdad sí reflejamos a la Iglesia siendo la Iglesia. William Temple dijo una vez que la Iglesia es la única sociedad que no existe para beneficio de sus propios miembros; existe para beneficio del mundo.Y, bien puede ser que, al tiempo que el primado de Jerusalén y del Oriente Medio y Chipre concluía su presentación de las relaciones interreligiosas, esta oración sea nuestra oración y una oración para todos nosotros:Que cuiden al bebé de Belén como si fuera propio. Que el muchacho de Nazaret sea para ustedes un amigo. Que el hombre de Galilea haga llegar su mano sanadora. Que el Cristo del Calvario preste su coraje. Que el Señor Resucitado envíe su promesa y sus santos ángeles les defiendan [a ustedes] hasta el fin.Desde la catedral de Cantórbery, Dios les bendiga, Dios les guarde. Que Dios nos sostenga a todos en esas todopoderosas manos de amor.Rvdmo. Michael B.

Non-Profit businesses: Get compliant

Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 City Council Summary: BUSINESS (Action Items)By Misha Corbett of Apopka Then and NowCouncilNot-for-Profit Business Tax Receipts (Mark Reggentin, Community Development Director).   Currently, only for-profits are required to obtain a business tax receipt.  When a business applies, they do a few checks, including:  zoning is current, use has not changed (that may require upgrades to meet fire codes, etc.), a fire inspection, & business is placed on list to receive an annual inspection.  So, in order to protect citizens, they will be working to notify non-profit businesses & to get everyone compliant.Mark ReggentinCommissioner Becker:  Asked what the timeline is for compliance?  (Answer:  A couple of months).  Confirmed that there is no cost to the non-profits.  Also, pointed out in the standard letter, that wording should be changed from “he” to “business owner”.Commissioner Bankson:  If it is a home business, is there a different standard?  (Answer:  They would be required to get a Home Based Business License, which will not require an inspection of their home, as long as they meet criteria for a home based business).PublicGregg Phillips:  On behalf of Apopka Little League.  Every year, in July, Apopka Little League & the City of Apopka will host the Little League Intermediate World Series Regional Tournament.  The top 8 baseball teams from FL, GA, AL, TN, NC, SC, WV, & VA will come & play.  The winner will go to CA for the Intermediate World Series.  For the past three years that they have hosted this, Little League International has commended the city & Apopka Little League as running a top notch event.  However, they need funds to host this event.  Every year, the city, as well as business owners helps out.  Little league help out to a certain extent.  Funding is especially important this year, as the hotel that has raised the rates immensely, which may force them to house the participants in Altamonte.  The FL team that won last year, went on to CA and won the World Series.  This event is a good thing for the city of Apopka, giving us a lot of good press throughout the SW region.  They are hopeful that business owners will step up again to fund this.Rod Love:  Comes regarding the issue of equity & fairness.  Task Force met at Fran Carlton.  They are citizens who volunteered their time, not a business entity.  If they have to pay, they want to make sure that it is fair across the board.  They want to be sure that the city is more cognizant about fairness.Eddie Poirer:  His wife was one of a number of people to die on Park Glen Circle.  He has reached out for help.  Since he originally did, he has learned that in his immediate area, they used crop dusters, it was a former bombing range, there were cattle dipping vats, etc.…  He has reached out to a researcher at UCF who feels that it is possible there is a cross contamination of feeder pipes.  He said Bryan Nelson generously stepped up & paid for his water testing.David Hoffman:  Concerned about Richard Anderson.  He worked for a private lobbying firm in Tallahassee while he was supposedly lobbying for Apopka.  Isn’t that a conflict of interest?  Anderson was paid more than many others in much higher positions.  There is no credible accounting of how he has earned his keep.  It is all mismanaged & citizens have reason to be concerned.  Kilsheimer stated that city attorney filed litigation today.  Hoffman asked if the city has a code of ethics in place.  (Answer:  No).

Darters will soon be focused on “the second season”

first_img Closes regular season tonight, begins playoffs Nov. 11thThe Apopka Blue Darters will put the finishing touches on a momentous regular season tonight at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School when they battle district foe Evans High School.It would be easy to look ahead. Apopka already won the 8A District 4 title for the first time since 2013. They clinched a playoff berth. They know their opponent in the first round – a home game against Timber Creek.However there is still historical incentive on the line for this year – an undefeated season.With a win over the 2-5 Trojans, the Blue Darters will finish 9-0 and claim their first undefeated regular season since 1994.And the likelihood is that this game will get out of hand early.Evans lost their district games to Wekiva 27-6 and West Orange 48-0. Apopka beat Wekiva 38-31 and West Orange 56-20. If common opponents are any indication of this game’s outcome, the result won’t be in doubt for long.However it’s unlikely a veteran coach like Rick Darlington and a senior-led team like Apopka will look ahead to a game two weeks away, but there is no harm in a writer doing it.When the Blue Darters open their playoff campaign, they will face a Timber Creek team that is currently 5-2 and has clinched a playoff berth. They lost their opening game to Oviedo 20-19, and a tough district game to Winter Park 7-0, but rebounded with wins over Boone (30-20) and Colonial (48-6) which clinched second place in 8A District 3.Oviedo and Winter Park found a way to stop Timber Creek, but only Hurricane Matthew has stopped Apopka. The Blue Darters only setback (for lack of a better phrase) was a cancelled game with Olympia High School that they could not coax the Olympians to re-schedule. Otherwise it has been six blowouts, two fourth quarter come-from-behind wins, outrageous offensive performances, consistent breakaway runs and second half “running” clocks that have been the norm this season.The Blue Darters are on a phenomenal roll this season, but everything changes in November. One bad game and a phenomenal season can end in shocking disappointment. Will Apopka continue this run all the way through November and December? Or will it end suddenly with one heart-breaking loss?Only the second season will answer that question.Kickoff for the Evans game is at 7PM. The playoff game against Timber Creek on November 11th starts at 7:30PM.

Christine Moore: “I’m an advocate for these families and I take…

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Candidate Feature – District 7 incumbent Christine MooreChristine Moore: OCPS             District 7 Incumbent.Christine Moore is a political institution in Apopka. Over the last two election cycles, she has been a campaign manager and consultant for mayoral and city commission elections, and for the past eight years has been on the Orange County Public School Board representing District 7 which includes all of Apopka. The two-term incumbent is running for a third term against Matthew Fitzpatrick – a first-time candidate.And its her experience and diversity of qualifications that Moore points to in separating herself from her opponents.“Being a member of the school board is not like being the president of a union or being a principal. It’s more like being a CEO. You wear a lot of hats and a diversity of experience is important. I have a well-rounded background in education, music, business and politics. I am board certified from the Florida School Boards Association. I have overseen the construction of a dozen new schools. I understand the position and know which issues are regulated by the state and those which fall under the purview of the district. I have extensive work with budgets.  I graduated at the top of my class in music education from the University of Michigan. I have extensive business experience in real estate investments and consulting. I have been active in numerous community service organizations and served on three Orange County boards. I’m currently on the United Arts Board and the Mayor’s Committee on Child Abuse.  I’ve had my own company, and I have a lot of experience on the political side in navigating things with elected officials. A broad background is good. It’s how you are effective on the School Board.”In today’s political climate, incumbency, political experience and being a part of the system is looked at as a liability by some. Certainly in Apopka, incumbents have not fared well in the past few years, but Moore cannot deny she is the establishment candidate in this race. She leads in name recognition, fundraising, and has been endorsed by the West Orange Political Alliance, Orlando Board of Realtors, Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association, Associated Builders and Contractors, BusinessFORCE, Conservative Ministers of Central Florida, OCPS Board Chairman Bill Sublette and other board members, teachers and local officials.However Moore embraces the idea of being a part of the system and thinks its necessary in order to function successfully.“Before you run you should clearly know the system. I know how to work within it to get things done. You have to understand the deck of cards you have. Now there’s times when you don’t like the deck and there are ways to deal with that too, once you understand the job description. Tallahassee controls a lot of the policies. A couple of my opponents… if you read their entire platform… they should be running for the Legislature. They don’t really understand the job description.”Moore sees the job of  board member as part lobbyist, part budget expert, part spokesperson and part “mother bear”.“Clearly you’re an advocate. You do a lot of constituent service. If someone has a problem, I always tell them to send me an email and I’ll forward it to the right person and follow up.”Moore has received several emails from her constituents  and heard the frustrations of local parents on an issue you may not expect to be on the forefront – recess. Moore understands their concerns and says it is an ongoing issue at the school board and legislative levels.“I’m for recess. We’re all for recess. The recess moms came to us a little over a year ago and they have a valid point. Everything is about school grades. And the principals are concerned because the Legislature ties school grades to salaries… so what was happening was they were working these kids from the minute they got to school until they left. There was no recess and the kids need recess. So the Board went back through area superintendents and asked them to have recess on every day except Wednesday. This particular group (of parents) has particular language that they want, so we’re going to have a work session to work out the details.”For some teachers and principals, the Marzano Teacher Evaluations has become a challenge that Moore would like to do something about, but she thinks lobbying Tallahassee will be the better strategy to effect change.“The state passed a law four or five years ago that teachers had to be evaluated. It’s too heavy handed in some respects, but it’s state law… so the issue is you have to go back to Tallahassee and lobby against it. There are all these best practices that Robert Marzano, an education expert, put in place… but he never envisioned it to be used to rate a teacher. He meant it to be best practices, so now we have scoring and evaluations based on it. The state has required too many of these Marzano Best Practices and its overwhelming… too much too fast. And that’s where you hear angst.”Despite the larger issues of a massive OCPS budget, Moore is conscious of the families and of the demographics of District 7.We pass a budget, but we don’t set a millage rate, so all of our funding goes through Tallahassee and comes back on a “per-student” basis. It’s nearly a four billion dollar budget, and you have to work with other municipalities, you have to lobby and all sorts of things like that, but you also have to keep in mind this district has a high degree of poverty…so when you’re representing the parents and students of District 7, you really have to have the mindset that you are the mother bear for a lot of families that don’t have the ability, time or where-with-all to advocate. Zellwood got rebuilt, Wheatley got rebuilt. Lovell got rebuilt. Dream Lake is 75% free or reduced lunch. I’m an advocate for these families and I take that seriously.” You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov.
