Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jun 14, 2013 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Al Lingo says: June 15, 2013 at 11:44 am Before all the unpleasantness the Falls Church was a leading Episcopal church that was held up in their Diocese and across the Church as an example of meaningful and measurable growth and vitality. They were relied on and bragged about. In the meantime they have searched the Scriptures beyond superficial meanings and have found many decisions by leading revisionists greatly lacking and increasingly they found that they were marginalized. They are gone and will not be back. So, the campus – built by their energy and funds – is left to a much, much smaller group who will be fortunate to muster 200 people this Sunday and also pay for its ongoing survival. In my own church the family of the 1920s founders (Episcopalian missionaries) and about 1/3 of the long-term supporters have left the Church of their youth, middle, and older age. Thousands more are leaving, dioceses are quitting and splitting. South Carolina is gone. We now number just below 2 million with perhaps 600,000 showing up. This is not victory. Stuff without people? Property to be used for what?We must find a day – very soon – when the General Convention Bucket List undertaken by today’s leading progressive revisionists will become healing and less divisive and stop irritating people out of their own churches. June 26, 2013 at 1:50 pm Is it any wonder why despite their claims of exponential growth in developing countries, churches of the “puritanical” kind almost always had doors slammed to their faces whenever they conduct their house to house literature crusade or people leaving their evangelical meetings without the assurance of returning and coming forward at the next altar call? It’s because for many people, especially those already born and raised as christians-even if nominally baptized, all these sanctimonious posturing, bible thumping preaching and repeated questions of “are you saved and prepared for the rapture?” Are meaningless to those who earn less than half a dollar and eat only one plate of decent meal–and by decent means scrap left overs from restaurant bins recooked as meat balls and rice congies–a day, and they find all these imported bible preachers on t.v. shows and airconditioned churches and hotel convention centers, and their affluent flocks offering each other for a ride to their bible study venues when they had their own luxury cars waiting at the parking lot makes them cringe and shake their heads at the hypocrisy of their apparent holiness and yet lacking the substance of compassion and justice for the poor and the oppressed. So for me all these sanctimonious posturing really means nothing to me but a bunch of holier than thou rantings of armchair theologians and moralists who have all the time and leisure in their hands to make their “concerted” effort at re-aligning the axis of the anglican communion in their favor in playing the persecuted martyr role in the mainland while orchestrating the manipulative game of hoisting the “bait” on sympathetic clergies and churches in the global south who are gullibly of the same mind as they are and are too eager to grab on the offer and enjoy the perks of becoming part of the global south realignment of the anglican communion… and also of the sharing of its blessings (and this includes church properties and assests). Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI July 2, 2013 at 12:44 am Truly, as what an old anticolonial saying goes on to say, “when america sneezes, the world catches cold,” or in the case of these disgruntled conservative anglican schismatics and their allies in their global south realignment agenda, “when they rock the anglican titanic, they assume those belonging to the lower decks would also join them in rocking the boat.” Well they can have can have the sinking ship if that’s what they want. But their bitterness over defeat in church property squabbles only serves to confirm that for all their so called moral righteousness posturings and calls for biblical crusade for anglican orthodoxy only matters so much to them as it concerns their own properties and vested interests with no connection or even an afterthought on what these will have on the credibility of anglicanism to episcopal churches in the (under)developed world. They might have not realized it but they ought to consider themselves lucky for having all these consultations, discussions, debates and time for discernments on these issues over spanning decades, issues that are actually ephemeral but now they strive to elevate to the level of a creed or dogma, issues that third world peoples find so trivial that they can only sratch their heads and sigh how come these affluent people sitting comfortably in their churches can make a proverbial mountain out of a molehill when people here exclaim “if it ain’t filling an empty stomach, it’s plain useless” for many of them can’t even think of praying to God or even think about the morality as they literally move heaven and earth just to have a taste of a descent meal for their family or finding a shelter or place to lay their weary and hungry bodies when evening thunderstorms drive them away from their cardboard shanties on sidewalks; where such issues aren’t even matters of life and death as what increasing numbers of pastors, priests and even bishops from catholics to protestant churches experienced for themselves for daring to defend the rights of poor farmers and ancestral domains of marginalized indigenous peoples receiving threats of harrasment, abductions, illegal detentions, torture and murder from hired death squads and underground paramilitary groups roaming the countryside. It’s a shame how people of faith are blinded over parrochial issues that they forgot to open their eyes and see that the episcopal church and the anglican communion does not revolve around nor exist solely for them or their agendas, there’s a whole wide world out here challenging first world churches to stop bickering like spoiled children deprived of their choco chip cookies and start acting like compassionate adults in reaching out to their less fortunate brothers and sisters still struggling to survive and live descently on the other (underdeveloped) side of the episcopal-anglican world.

Ryan Hall says: Rector Albany, NY June 19, 2013 at 9:54 pm I am glad that the Falls Church is being returned to the faithful Episcopalians who have built up this church in a long tradition since the Revolutionary War. I am sad that some reactionaries have followed their own “purity movement” to leave TEC. No one kicked them out. The “conservatives” could have remained in the Church and their building. But, no. They had to declare their “purity” and declare all others as “unclean” or even “heretical.” It was their hubris that made them take this step which has now cost them the building that ALL the Episcopalians have built. How very sad. If they had remained together, I expect this will blow over in another 10 years or so. The schismatics of the purity sect have no one to blame but themselves.

Rector Martinsville, VA June 21, 2013 at 5:51 am I guess what bothers me about your comment is your supposition that whatever Jesus is alleged to have said about marriage in the first century, 2,000 years ago, is cast in concrete as God’s will for all time. It does not take into account that Jesus was willing to break rules when it suited him, as in the several examples when he healed on the Sabbath and was taken to task for so doing by the synogogue leaders. The Jesus in whom I believe and whom I worship was in my view and above all a man of compassion. He truly felt for others. I think that He very well may have come to different conclusion today after 2,000 years of learning.

The journey of Israel’s becoming a faithful people found in the OT is not a cookbook for how to do everything right. Errant relationships, relationships being corrected, obedience, fallacies, faithlessness, and hope are all there in the OT as a record of the journey towards faithfulness, but it is illogical to point towards their mistakes as definitive of God’s will. King David was faithful and the apple of God’s eye, but not when he misled and caused murder. Abram rode on a saddle containing idols while worshipping the One God, and eventually tossed his idols aside. Does that mean that we look at his idol worship and copy it? No. We look instead to his maturing in the faith when he became more fully obedient and faithful. Moments of idolatry, murder, polygamy, etc. are not definitive but the evidence of a people who were being changed. With regards to marriage, look to the perfection of the Law and the hope of Israel; there is absolutely no ambiguity from the mouth of Jesus Christ. In Matthew 19 (Jesus quotes Genesis 2): “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’?” The Lord has clearly declared the will of God for marriage by reminding us of God’s design in the beginning. Since then humanity – including Israel in Scripture – has used human reason to justify doing something else. The will of God hasn’t changed no matter how many reasonable people say so. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL June 14, 2013 at 8:24 pm I read the news with a sense of relief. All parishes should review articles of incorporation to make sure it is clearly stated the property belongs ultimately to the Diocese. It is sometimes difficult to locate a copy of the articles. I recommend the appointment of a parish chancellor. This should be a lawyer with a local practice who can keep track of legal papers while rectors and vestry members come and go. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS June 17, 2013 at 8:37 am There was a time when people used the Bible to support their view that slavery was proper. Later, these people used the Bible to support their view that segregation and treatment of black people as third-class citizens was proper. There was a time when people used the Bible to support their view that divorced people could not be remarried in the Church. There was a time, and sadly, it still exists, when people used the Bible to support their view that woman were not equal to men and that they should not be permitted to serve as priests and bishops. Today people use the Bible to support their views that homosexuals should be excluded from priesthood in the Church. Over the centuries many people have learned that the teachings of the Bible should be interpreted in the light of our scientific learning and the broadening of our understanding that ALL people are equal in Christ, and that ALL people should be treated the same. To rely on the Bible as supporting discrimination against groups of people because of their color, their gender or their sexual orientation is nothing but bigotry wrapped in Scripture to make it palatable and excusable. I would far rather be the very last person in an Episcopal Church which loves and treats ALL people as one in Jesus Christ than ally myself with those who smugly practice bigotry in His name and with their Bibles clutched under their arms. A church which discriminates against groups of people is a church in name only. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Gilbert Martinez says: June 21, 2013 at 8:01 pm Bruce –Jesus reiterated Genesis 2 (one man -one woman united in marriage) at the beginning of the Common Era after a few thousand years of humanity’s self-exalting experimentation into other relational options: polygamy, bridal slavery, same-sex relationships, demands for divorce, arranged marriages, and many other guises. Interesting that after a few thousand years of such deformities that He simply returned to the beginning. It’s all been tried – it’s all been excused away – it’s all been a disaster. He calls us to return to God’s design. Modern humanity hasn’t come into anything new; however some among us involve themselves in the latest version of an old story of self-deception that seeks to be disobedient to the will of God. Jesus didn’t “break the rules” on this one. It’s crystal clear. His words, not mine. So, the question: are we a Church that believes that His words are Gospel or that He is just an enlightened teacher of that time? Do we believe that human tradition and reason trump Scripture? Some believe so, and that’s why we’re bleeding members, closing parishes, losing whole dioceses, shuttering cathedrals, and merging seminaries. The path of listening with itching ears to teachers we accumulate is costing the Church. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Collierville, TN Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA June 15, 2013 at 8:41 am My Uncle, Rev. J. Hodge Alves, was rector of the Fallls Church for over twenty years. I did not even know ownership was in contention. He authored a book about Falls Church. I have strong feeling about both sides of this coin. Uncle Hodge was a 15th generation Episcopalian and always felt the honor of serving in this historic place. Unity is hard for many Episcopalians when new thought seems to them to be contrary to Canon by which they learned their faith. We lost so many actual buiding and property when the American Revolution ended and perhaps their properties were still in doubt. We all worship one Lord, one Savior, and pray the Holy Spirit will guide us to provide the same faith to our children and to others that was so freely given to us.

The ones that remained WERE FEWER THAN ONE PERCENT.And “apostate” may be a better description than “heretical.” June 27, 2013 at 8:59 pm Beautifully said!!!!!!!! What a beautiful reflection of Christ you are. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Gilbert Martinez says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME [Episcopal News Service] In a one-sentence order issued June 14, the Virginia Supreme Court denied a request from The Falls Church Anglican to rehear its earlier decision reaffirming a circuit court ruling that returned The Falls Church property to loyal Episcopalians to use for the  mission of the Diocese of Virginia and the Episcopal Church.The denial sends the case back to the Fairfax County Circuit Court for final resolution of issues related to personal property.“The decision by the Supreme Court is about much more than litigation,” Virginia Bishop Shannon S. Johnston said in a diocesan press release. “This decision is an occasion for all those, on both sides, to focus fully on positive ministries ahead.”The Rev. John Ohmer, rector of The Falls Church Episcopal, said that he and his congregation are “relieved by this decision and looking forward to turning a new page.The Rev. Deacon Edward W. Jones, secretary of the diocese, called the decision “an affirming one,” adding that the diocese is “looking to the future with gratefulness and optimism.”The Falls Church Anglican has not yet commented on the ruling.The Falls Church was one of 11 congregations in the diocese in which a majority of members voted to disaffiliate from the diocese and the Episcopal Church. Over the years, all but The Falls Church Anglican had settled their property conflicts with the diocese and the church after judicial decisions in favor of the diocese and the church.The June 14 ruling is the latest in a long series in the dispute.After a Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge ordered The Falls Church Anglican in March 2012 to return the parish property to the diocese, the Anglicans only agreed to allow the Episcopalians to return to the parish building to celebrate Easter (April 8, 2012).However, the Anglican congregation soon thereafter appealed to the state Supreme Court and in the meantime asked the Circuit Court to prevent the Episcopalians from returning again until the high court ruled. The Circuit Court refused and the Falls Church Episcopalians returned to their property on May 15, 2012.On April 18 of this year, the Virginia Supreme Court affirmed the circuit court ruling returning the Falls Church property to the Episcopalians. It was this ruling that The Falls Church Anglican asked the court to reconsider, despite earlier comments by the Rev. John Yates, The Falls Church Anglican’s rector, on April 28 that the Supreme Court’s “overwhelming rejection of our arguments … reduces our legal options drastically.”And in his weekly message for the week of May 19, Yates said: “We have received further confirmation that the courts are not likely to reverse last year’s ruling.” He explained why the congregation’s leaders are “willing to lose our property and move ahead into an uncertain, unclear future.”However, on May 17, the Anglican congregation petitioned the state Supreme Court for a rehearing on its April 18 decision. The petition argued that the justices mistakenly based that ruling on a legal theory that “has never — in over six years of litigation — been pled, argued, briefed, or proven” by the Episcopal Church or the Diocese of Virginia.The court’s June 14 order did not address The Falls Church Anglican claims.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Tampa, FL Rector Washington, DC June 15, 2013 at 1:20 pm Godspeed. Director of Music Morristown, NJ June 28, 2013 at 9:54 am I’ve heard one too many of clergy reactions as to why evangelicalism (of the militant puritanical kind) don’t get much of an attention in the local episcopal churches in the philippines but often end up lumped together with the bible fundie sects for their elitism and aloofness to the social realities of this country. One even confided that after attending one of those global south to south encounters, they felt more like puppets with incentives offered just to have their presence (and ofcourse their signatures and photo ops) and add credence to their agendas of realignment. And for this reason many of them declined to have any further contacts with that group and unanimously agreed with the synod in rejecting the proposed anglican covenant and renewed the covenant of partnership with the episcopal church. All those talk of morality and alignment only works within the walls of seminary classrooms and had no real bearings on the lives of majority of the people who had seldom heard about anglicanism much less its exotic evangelical variety limited to filipino chinese anglicans whose ministers aren’t even graduates of local seminary but had to be imported all the way from singapore (hence the derisive term “singapore virus” applied to clerics coming into contact and spreading their brand of anglicanism among majority of local episcopalians born and raised in the anglo-catholic tradition).

Take Action for Mumia – Twitter Storm Jan 4, Protest Jan 5

first_imgPlease when you send the email to your list, ask them to do this on Friday, January 4th. We need the numbers all on the same day to create the Twitter storm. These links can also be posted on your Facebook pages, web sites, etc. Just headline it “Twitter Storm for Mumia on Friday, January 4 – Click To Tweet”Click to Tweet link #1:#KrasnerDoRightByMumia @philaDAO Don’t stand in the way of justice. Don’t appeal Judge’s decision allowing ex Panther Abu-Jamal to re-appeal! Judge says re-arguing Mumia’s appeals “would best serve the appearance of justice”Click to Tweet link #2:#KrasnerDoRightByMumia @philaDAO Don’t appeal Judge’s decision allowing ex Panther Abu-Jamal to re-appeal. You campaigned on freeing the wrongfully convicted. Mumia’s case Is Philly’s most notorious Wrongful Conviction!Philly – Sat Jan 5: People’s Constitutional Protest Party for Mumia’s FreedomMumia Abu-Jamal won a significant case before Judge Leon Tucker in a decision announced on Dec. 27, granting Abu-Jamal new rights of appeal.Abu-Jamal’s supporters will rally to demand Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner not challenge this decision. Community activists will gather in front of the DA’s office, 3 S. Penn Sq. across from City Hall, on Saturday, Jan. 5 at 12 noon. Since rain is forecast, we will march to the William Way LGBT Center, 1315 Spruce, to continue the event until 4pmCurrent DA Krasner should cease defending former Philadelphia DA and later PA Supreme Court Judge Ron Castille’s now-discredited claim of impartiality. Furthermore, Krasner should not challenge Judge Tucker’s decision and allow Abu-Jamal to go forward with re-arguing his appeals, which Judge Tucker states “would best serve the appearance of justice.”Pam Africa of the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal said, “The people’s movement is responsible for this victory. A new appeal opens the door to Mumia’s freedom – a new trial or dismissal of the charges.”Judge Tucker’s ground breaking ruling could impact many other prisoners whose appeals were similarly denied.Tucker ruled former Pa Supreme Court Justice Ronald Castille denied Abu-Jamal fair and impartial appeals by not recusing himself from the defendant’s appeals from 1998-2012. The ruling referenced Castille’s public statements of being a “law and order” prosecutor, responsible for 45 men on death row, the support of the Fraternal Order of Police and the new evidence of Castille’s having singled out men convicted as “police killers”. It all created the appearance of bias and impropriety in the appeal process.Judge Tucker’s ruling means that Mumia Abu-Jamal’s appeals of his 1982 conviction, that he was framed by police and prosecution manufacturing evidence of guilt and suppressing the proof of his innocence as well as other due process trial rights, are re-stored and must be re-heard in the PA appeals court.Abu-Jamal has always maintained his innocence in the fatal shooting of police officer Daniel Faulkner. His prosecution was politically-motivated because of his Black Panther Party membership, his support of the MOVE organization and as a radical journalist. His trial was racially biased: trial judge Albert Sabo declared, “I’m gonna help them fry the n—-r.” and the prosecution excluded African Americans from the jury.After 37 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, the charges should be dismissed and he should be freed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Anyone with a twitter account, please click on these links on Friday, January 4th, and it will take you to your own Twitter account with the wording already there, all you have to do is click Tweet.

Kelly alumni center. The luncheon will take place in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom.“The reaction has been very strong, even stronger than we expected,” Jim Hille, TCU’s chief investment officer, said.After an ice storm coincided with last year’s event, Hille and others were looking to regain the positive growth trend from previous years. So Hille said they looked for top-notch speakers and were able to arrange for Bush to speak through his chief of staff.The event has been gaining national attention, according to Charlotte Holliday, administrative assistant in the Luther King Capital Management Center for Financial Studies.“This is a very high energy and high profile event,” Holliday said. “It draws people from all over the country.”“It was becoming a national event and now we’ve made it a national event, just as TCU has become a nationally-renown university,” Hille said.The conference is designed to educate investment professionals while giving exposure and access to the TCU Finance community.Bush will be speaking in a “fireside chat” style interview that gives insights into his time in office and how decisions are made at a policy level.A total of 450 reservations for the conference became available Monday. Although by 11:00 a.m. Friday Hille said they were almost completely booked.The event is free for Neeley faculty, staff and students.

SWAT called to River Park Dr. for domestic dispute

first_imgAlumna joins ‘Survivor’ reality show in quest for a million dollars Previous articleBrothers join forces for the FrogsNext articleFWISD plans to reorganize administration, assist teachers Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Elizabeth Campbell Breakdown: Cambridge Analytica, information warfare printAn active SWAT incident is all clear now after a domestic dispute this morning in the 6900 block of River Park Dr.The apartment complex where the event took place.The Fort Worth Police Department received a call this morning around 6:40 a.m. reporting that a man was banging on the door of an apartment building, according to the incident detail report.Upon arriving, officers learned that the man was trying to talk to his estranged wife but no criminal offense had occurred, Sgt. Steve Enright, a FWPD Public Relations Officer, said.“They did quell the situation to the point that the man was going to leave and the woman was going back to her apartment,” Enright said.When the man left the apartment he went to the parking lot, entered his vehicle and retrieved a handgun Enright said. The man approached officers with a handgun and asked officers to shoot him.“Basically suicide by cop,” Enright said.However the cops did not comply.“The officers used great restraint,” Enright said. “Instead, they took cover and they engaged the person in a conversation.”The man then fired a single shot in the air, Enright said. The officers responded by calling for the tactical unit, the SWAT team, and a hostage negotiation team. Upon the tactical teams responding, they too engaged the man in a conversation, Enright said. The man also spoke to several people on his telephone during this incident, he said.The officers were eventually able to get through to him. The man placed his gun on the ground and was taken into custody without incident, Enright said.“We engaged in a dialogue and was able to tell him there were other things to consider,” Enright said. “Thankfully he agreed with that and surrendered.”Enright said the man will probably be taken to a local hospital for some mental evaluation and mental assistance. As for criminal charges, he said that they will decide that at a later time.Enright said that the officers who responded today did a “superior” job today and the incident was over by 9 a.m..“Usually as a police officer when someone approaches you with a gun, even before he had the opportunity to say shoot me, it’s a deadly force situation,” Enright said. “They really used great restraint and took everything into consideration. Fortunately, we have one person that’s alive today, or maybe more than one person that’s alive today that might not have been.” Elizabeth Campbell ReddIt Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.
