Seguimos compartiendo ese anhelo, como dice el himno de Navidad: “Las esperanzas y  los temores de todos los años se cumplen en ti esta noche”. Hemos visto surgir abundantes esperanzas en el último año en el mundo árabe y Europa del Este, y en el movimiento de ocupación a nivel mundial. Esas voces buscan un mundo más justo, comunidades en las que las decisiones y los dones de la creación estén al alcance de todos. Nuestra comprensión de la salvación se acerca con más profundidad a la justicia en la comunidad, y como cristianos, creemos que esa ayuda y sanación para todos se basan en la presencia de Dios encarnado, entre nosotros y en nosotros.Buscamos la salvación en uno que vino a nosotros de la manera más humilde, un niño indefenso nace de una manera escandalosa de una pareja de campesinos pobres. La Encarnación, Dios con nosotros, ha cambiado el mundo en formas que nosotros insistimos que conducen a la curación definitiva de toda la creación. “Mira, llega tu salvación”, dice el profeta en todos los tiempos, sin embargo, aún no nos ha llegado en su plenitud. Vivimos en la esperanza de su plenitud. Que la esperanza crezca en nosotros, en todos y cada ser humano y en la comunidad, por el viaje hacia el futuro sano y santo de Dios.Esa proclamación de la salvación que llega es parte del texto de Isaías (Isa 62:6-12) que será leído en algunas congregaciones en Navidad, pero si usted no lo oye, vaya y lea todo el pasaje. Su punto central trata de cómo será la salvación:El Señor ha jurado…Nunca más permitiré que tus enemigos se coman tu trigo,  ni que los extranjeros se beban el vino que has hecho con tu trabajo;sino que ustedes mismos recogerán la cosecha se la comerán y me alabarán a mí,  y los que la recojan beberán el vino en los atrios de mi santo templo. Isa 62:8-9Esa no es una visión de aislamiento prístino, sino una visión de la comodidad y la curación de un pueblo frecuentemente en guerra, ocupado, o explotado por fuerzas superiores. El temor de que los poderosos se apropien y utilicen para sí mismos los productos de los pobres queda curado y  transformado en una sociedad en la que los dones que Dios ofrece serán compartidos por todos. Porque cuando llegue la salvación, esa sociedadserá llamada, ‘el Pueblo Santo, Los libertados por el Señor’;y seréis llamados, ‘La ciudad deseada, La ciudad no abandonada’.  Isa 62:12Jesús viene a nosotros para recordarnos un mundo en el que vivirán todos juntos en paz, para reclamar y hacer realidad la visión de una creación para toda la humanidad y todas las criaturas de Dios. Ese mundo estará en lo justo cuando las relaciones entre Dios y la humanidad, sean justas. La relación entre Dios y el ser humano no se puede enderezar sin la misma curación de las relaciones entre los mortales. Mira, ¡llega tu salvación! ¿Le daremos la bienvenida a esa sanidad?La Rvdma.

The members of the Commission sent their wishes for a full and speedy recovery to Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen, Chair of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel’s Committee for Interreligious Dialogue. The Commission also congratulated the Rt Revd Michael Ipgrave on his appointment as Bishop of Woolwich and Canon Guy Wilkinson (a past Anglican coordinator of the Commission) on his investiture as CBE.The theme of the Commission’s meeting was ‘Religion and Democracy’ in both traditions. The paper presented by Dr Jane Clements on ‘Anglicanism and the Secular State’ explored the dynamic between the Kingdom of God and the earthly realm in accordance with the method of scripture interpreted in the light of tradition and reason.Rabbi Dr Rasson Arousi’s presentation explored ‘Democracy in Judaism’s Political Vision’. He compared contemporary democratic values and practices with Judaism’s ideals of governance, participation and accountability of even the highest political authorities to religio-ethical values.The programme included a visit to the Bodleian Library and a fascinating survey of  Medieval Jewish Oxford.  Rabbi Prof Avraham Steinberg then delivered a highly illuminating lecture on Jewish Medical Ethics at the Oxford Chabad Society attended by local multi faith audience.The commission discussed various matters of concern, including the recent Private Member’s Motion that related to Israel/Palestine at the Church of England’s General Synod. There was acknowledgement that this had caused much distress within the Jewish community in Britain and also within the Christian community as well as in Israel and beyond. At the same time, appreciation was expressed for the efforts of all those who were engaged on the issue to introduce greater understanding and a wider perspective. The Commission discussed steps that could be taken to address the complexities of the challenges raised.The participants looked forward to their next meeting in 2013.The Most Revd Michael Jackson                   Rabbi Dr Rasson AroussiThe following are members of the Commission:Delegation of the Chief Rabbinate of IsraelRabbi Dr Rasson ArousiRabbi Dr David Rosen CBE, KSGRabbi Prof Abraham SteinbergRabbi Professor Daniel SperberMr Oded Wiener, Director General, the Chief Rabbinate of IsraelDelegation of the Archbishop of CanterburyThe Most Revd Dr Michael JacksonThe Rt Revd Dr Michael Ipgrave OBEMrs Clare AmosDr Jane ClementsThe Revd Dr Toby Howarth Secretary for Inter Religious Affairs to the Archbishop of CanterburyThe Revd Rana Youab Khan, Archbishop of Canterbury international Inter-religious Dialogues Assistant An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Knoxville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Tags Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Sam Carriere, director of Communications and Information Resources and Resources for Mission, shared this news with General Synod staff on Dec. 13.Editor since 2009, Ms. Jenkins will leave the Anglican Journal on Jan. 7, 2013 to become director of advancement at Albert College in Belleville, Ont.“It is my feeling, supported by advice I have sought and received, that I should not engage in a formal search and hiring process for an editor of the Anglican Journal until next year’s restructuring work is behind us, at the earliest,” said Mr. Carriere in an email to staff.In November, the Council of General Synod passed a transitional budget for 2013 and agreed to establish a more conservative budget for 2014 in response to declining revenues. Throughout the next year, General Synod leadership will consider ways to restructure the national office, including the Anglican Journal.In the meantime, the Journal will be led by three staff:Archdeacon Paul Feheley will serve as managing editor, assuming overall responsibilities for staff management, assignments, newspaper content, and day-to-day activities. Mr. Feheley will continue in his current position as the Primate’s principal secretary. He has previously served on Anglican Communion communication teams at the Lambeth Conference, the Primates’ Meeting and the Anglican Consultative Council.Bev Murphy will become the Anglican Journal’s business manager. Ms. Murphy will continue as General Synod’s senior manager of communications and now also oversee all aspects of the newspaper’s finances, including revenues, advertising, and liaising with Heritage Canada, which provides a major grant to the newspaper.Sam Carriere’s role will be at arm’s length, serving as a consultant for the managing editor and business manager, as needed.“I considered a number of temporary or interim possibilities to provide the Journal and its staff with leadership, direction and support. I also took as a given that existing Journal staff are quite capable of producing the newspaper within the present configuration,” said Mr. Carriere in his email to staff.“The skills needed for the interim period, in other words, are more management and leadership skills than traditional journalistic skills, though some of the latter is, of course, essential.”The Anglican Journal is the Anglican Church of Canada’s editorially independent newspaper, founded in 1875.– Ali Symons is General Synod senior editor.

Reuters/Jessica Rinaldi[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts asked for prayers early on April 19 while the entire city of Boston and some surrounding towns were locked down as police searched for the second of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.“Given the ongoing police activity that you are no doubt seeing on the news, I want to let you know that we have been in touch this morning with our chaplains at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard, and with the clergy and wardens at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Watertown, and everyone there, as well as at Episcopal Divinity School, are safe, as far as we know,” Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE, told clergy and diocesan leadership early on April 19.“Please pray for all in the affected communities, and pray for a speedy and violence-free resolution to these disturbing events.  Keep watch, Lord, with those who work or watch or weep this day.”The diocesan offices and the Cathedral Church of St. Paul office near Boston Common at 138 Tremont Street in Boston were closed.The Facebook page for the Rev. Amy McCreath, Good Shepherd’s priest-in-charge, soon began to fill with messages of concern and promises of prayers. During its weekly Hidden Brook contemplative prayer evening service on April 18, Church of the Good Shepherd included prayers for the victims of the bombing and “support for the rest of us in dealing with the tragedy.”Events began to unfold on the evening of April 18 after the FBI released photos of two men they called “armed and extremely dangerous.”FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said during a press conference just after 5 p.m. EST that “no one should approach them. No one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement.”Overnight, the brothers apparently attempted to rob a convenience store near MIT. Soon after, a MIT police officer was shot and killed in his car, according to the Boston Globe.The brothers later carjacked a Mercedes SUV, the Globe said. The car’s owner escaped and the two men led police on a long chase during which they fired on Watertown, Massachusetts, police and Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Transit Police officer, Richard H. Donahue Jr., 33, was wounded. The Globe reported that 10 officers were being evaluated at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton after they were injured by explosives thrown from the car.During the gunfight, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was wounded and brought to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center emergency room about 1:10 a.m. with multiple traumatic injuries. Doctors told the Globe that those injuries included both gunshot wounds and explosive-caused wounds. He later died.Police have been conducting an intense search, as times going door to door, in Boston and some surrounding communities for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. Photo/FBISince then police have been conducting an intense search, at times going door-to-door, for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. The Associated Press reported that he and his older brother, Tamerlan, came from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency. The two had been living together on Norfolk Street in Cambridge, about two miles from EDS.Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick asked people who live in the entire city of Boston, and the nearby communities of Watertown, Waltham, Newton, Belmont and Cambridge, to “shelter in place” — stay inside and not open their doors to anyone, except police with proper identification.The search has also led to the sudden shutdown of the MTBA’s commuter rail, bus, and subway services. Taxi service was shut down. Officials asked businesses across the area not to open this morning.

It was the first time the IALC had met in Dublin since 1995.The consultation was organised by the Rev. Alan Rufli, rector of Clondalkin, who is also the Church of Ireland’s electronic liturgical officer and diocesan liturgical officer for Dublin and Glendalough.He worked closely with his fellow members of the IALC steering committee, which holds responsibility for arrangements between successive IALC  meetings. Members include Cynthia  Botha (Southern Africa,  who  is  the IALC secretary and liaison officer), Bishop Kito Pikaahu (Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia), Eileen  Scully (Canada) and Nak Hyon Joo (Korea).The conference attracted a total of 41 representatives from countries around the Anglican Communion including South Africa, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia, Scotland, England, the Philippines, South Sudan and Ireland.During their time in Dublin delegates visited and worshiped in both Christ Church Cathedral and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Cultural tours of Dublin were also arranged, with opportunities to view the Book of Kells in the Long Room of Trinity College, Dublin, and to visit Marsh’s Library, the Chester Beatty Library and St Michan’s church.Healing and Reconciliation themeTaking the conference theme of Rites Relating to Healing and Reconciliation, participants reflected on issues ranging from forgiveness to ministry to the sick and dying.During the meeting there were presentations by Philip Tovey and Colin Buchanan (England), Lizette Larson-Miller (USA), Tomas Maddela (Philippines) and Terry Brown (Solomon Islands).A number of papers were delivered on subjects including the changing approaches in the Anglican Communion to the ministry to the sick, palliative spirituality shaping ritual and prayer, confession and absolution in the Anglican Formularies and issues surrounding private auricular and general public confessions.There was also a review of the work of past lALCs and a report to the Anglican Consultative Council was discussed, as were the draft revised guidelines for the networks of the Anglican Communion.Official network for liturgyIALC conferences bring together liturgists and liturgical theologians from the provinces of the communion for focused study of particular liturgical issues and the building up of Communion life through the mutual sharing of resources and insights.The consultations are the official network for liturgy in the Anglican Communion, recognized by the Anglican Consultative Council and the Primates Meeting, and holding first responsibility in the communion to resource and communicate liturgical developments and information on a communion-wide basis.Membership is open to all who hold provincial responsibilities for liturgical matters; all Anglican members of the international and ecumenical society for liturgical study and renewal, Societas Liturgica; and anyone whom the steering committee may invite.Historically, the consultations date from 1983 when they developed alongside the congress of Societas Liturgica.

La Sociedad Misionera Doméstica y Extranjera es por naturaleza toda ella misión, todo el tiempo y en todos los niveles de la Iglesia. Ya logramos progresos. Nos comprometemos a seguir avanzando con la ayuda de la gente de la Iglesia Episcopal”.Con un enfoque en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, el Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia es una revista interactiva que incluye videos, fotos y relatos que detallan cómo los recursos de toda la Iglesia se han puesto a la disposición de los niveles locales. La página del documento 200 + incluye un extenso apéndice organizado por diócesis para una referencia rápida.Dado que el presupuesto de la Iglesia Episcopal se basa en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, “esto nos permitió juntamente, al personal y al Consejo Ejecutivo, en colaboración con gente de toda nuestra Iglesia, desarrollar este trienio algunos de los ministerios más creativos y de impacto convincente”, dijo McDonald.“El propósito del informe es involucrar al conjunto de la Iglesia Episcopal en una conversación acerca de la misión con el fin de dotar a todos los episcopales a que sean misioneros que involucren al resto del mundo en la transformación que encontramos en el evangelio”, dijo Alexander D. Baumgarten, Director de participación pública y comunicaciones de misión de la Iglesia Episcopal. “A lo largo del informe, verá la pregunta: ´¿Cómo podemos colaborar con usted?’ Esperamos que los episcopales respondan ampliamente a esta pregunta en toda la Iglesia, y la página del informe en nuestro sitio web tiene para ese fin un formulario de respuesta”.El Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia se centra en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión: Proclamar la Buena Nueva del Reino; enseñar, bautizar y nutrir a los nuevos creyentes; responder a las necesidades humanas a través del servicio caritativo; tratar de transformar las estructuras injustas de la sociedad, para desafiar a la violencia de cualquier tipo y buscar la paz y la reconciliación; esforzarse por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida de la tierra.McDonald explicó que el “Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia es amplio, aunque no se pudieron incluir todas las misiones y los esfuerzos de este ministerio”. Entre los detalles que se presentan están: nuevas iglesias y ministerios iniciados durante este trienio; trabajo por la justicia racial; la buena nueva del programa diocesano de asociaciones; el Cuerpo de servicio de jóvenes adultos, y otros esfuerzos para hacer normativa del servicio misionero; sostenibilidad de la IX Provincia; ministerios universitarios; ministerios del jubileo; subvenciones y becas; zonas misioneras; el evento de la juventud episcopal (EYE14).McDonald llegó a la conclusión de que el “Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia se ha creado para celebrar el increíble trabajo que el personal ha realizado en colaboración con muchos otros a través de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Comunión Anglicana. En él se informa de nuevo sobre nuestros objetivos específicos y resultados mencionados en nuestro actual presupuesto. Esperamos que exprese la emoción que sentimos por la misión como el latido del corazón de la Iglesia, y la inspiración del Espíritu de Dios que encontramos en esa misión”.

The dean of St. Paul’s, the Very Rev. David Ison, mentioned her “gentle constancy, royal dignity and kindly humanity.”A member of the Mothers’ Union from Wales, Hilda Price, who shares her birthday with the Queen, read a special prayer at the service, which was broadcast live on the BBC.The Queen has been patron of Mothers’ Union since 1952 and has spoken openly about the importance of her Christian faith, but also by the way she has lived out that faith in service to Britain and the Commonwealth.Speaking before the ceremony, Mothers’ Union Chief Executive Beverley Jullien said, “The Queen’s patronage gives a sense of solidarity in faith, commitment to family, and consistent values of service to others which inspire Mothers’ Union members across the generations. We’re delighted to be able to recognize dedicated volunteers from within our organization at the Patron’s Lunch, who emulate these values and have helped so many people through their volunteering.”More than 400 Mothers’ Union members who were born in the same year as the Queen are pictured in a birthday card from the Mothers’ Union to her majesty. These include members in Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies, U.S., Uganda and South Africa as well as the U.K.Celebrations continued throughout the weekend, with the annual Trooping the Colour on Horse Guards Parade on June 11 – the Queen’s official birthday – when there was also a flypast by the Royal Air Force.On Sunday, June 12, the Queen hosted a street party for 10,000 people at the Patron’s Lunch – a celebration of her patronage of more than 600 organizations in the U.K. and around the Commonwealth. The Mall, in St. James’s Park, was be lined with picnic tables for the street party.Nearly a million copies of a book celebrating the Queen and her Christian faith, called The Queen and the King She Serves, by Catherine Butcher and Mark Greene, have been printed.

It follows the call from the Anglican Consultative Council, at their meeting in Lusaka in April (ACC-16), for “every province, diocese and parish” in the Anglican Communion to “adopt a clear focus on intentional discipleship” as part of a “season of intentional discipleship” to run for the next nine-or-so years.The launch of the Decade of Intentional Discipleship will “signal the start of a season of vision sharing and preparation ahead of mobilization,” Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba said.In a letter to the archbishops of neighboring provinces, inviting them and their bishops to bring or send young people to the event,Makgoba said: “The aim in this conference is to involve young people fully, and to expose, inspire, equip, and encourage participants to return to their communities and engage in holistic mission, evangelism, discipleship and service in the power of the Holy Spirit.”A range of speakers has been lined up to take part in the conference, including Advocate Thuli Madonsela, South Africa’s Public Protector, who was recently named by Time magazine as one of the hundred most influential women in the world.Around 1,500 people are expected to attend the conference. Some dioceses in the north of South Africa are negotiating to have special “Anglicans Ablaze” train carriages to take the young people to the event.“That should be fun,”Makgoba said. “They will already be ‘blazing’ by the time they get to Cape Town!”The last Anglicans Ablaze conference was held in 2014 and was attended by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. He brought tears to participants when, in an impromptu gesture, he washed the feet of 12 young people in reference to Jesus’ teaching that whoever wants to become a leader must become the servant of all.“The 2014 Anglicans Ablaze conference was an apt place of unity, grace and rich Encounter,”Makgoba said. “It was a ‘wow moment’ as we encountered Christ as we engaged with each other!“Everyone was there – all races, varied languages and different ages. High-Church and Low-Church, Anglo-Catholics, Evangelicals and Charismatics, that is, if these artificial divides matter to you.“God’s ever present presence was among us in a special way. Our common life was enriched by our diversity – even if some of us found some of the expressions of worship different to what we are used to!“It was an amazing celebration of God’s love pouring through us, transforming us into a holistic life of evangelism, discipleship, integral mission and social justice. This breath-taking aesthetic of Anglicanism shone through as we allowed God’s inspiring love to weave gloriously into our different threads and enveloped us.”Anglicans Ablaze 2016 will be held from 5 to 8 October at Bishops’ College, Rondebosch, Cape Town. The theme is “Vulindlela – Open the Way!”Click here for more information about Anglicans Ablaze 2016.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Hopkinsville, KY Tags In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Los sermones basados en la Escritura, especialmente en las lecturas que señala el leccionario para el día, pueden ser una piedra de toque de la comunidad religiosa en tiempos de división, dicen muchos predicadores.[Episcopal News Service] Las elecciones presidenciales de 2016 y el gobierno de Trump han expuesto, dependiendo de los comentaristas que uno escuche, divisiones tan profundas cual no se habían visto en Estados Unidos desde la guerra de Secesión o al menos desde las protestas que sacudieron al país durante la era de los derechos civiles y la guerra de Vietnam.Las personas que en líneas generales concuerda con el rumbo de la actual administración con frecuencia encuentran con otras que denuncian ese rumbo. El ritmo incesante del ciclo de noticias con un escándalo o una decisión polémica tras otro puede percibirse como un bombardeo, independientemente de la posición que uno tenga.Vivir una vida de fe en medio de tales divisiones no es fácil. El domingo por la mañana, miembros de la misma congregación vienen a la iglesia por diferentes razones. Algunos podrían buscar un respiro de los intensos debates que se libran en todo el país. Otros podrían buscar orientación o inspiración para sus menesteres de la arena pública. Otros podrían acudir al templo con preocupaciones y alegrías más íntimos. ¿Qué ha de hacer un predicador?Algunos predicadores solos con sus biblias y libros de texto han reflexionado sobre esta interrogante y ello ha sido el tema de pequeñas reuniones de clérigos, discusiones en Facebook y reuniones del clero diocesano, entre ellos recientemente en Maryland y Minnesota.“El evangelio es intrínsecamente político, pero no político partidista estadounidense”, dice el Rdo. Gary Manning, rector de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.El Rdo. Gary Manning, rector de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, le dijo a Episcopal News Service que el saber que la congregación a la que él se enfrenta está llena de toda clase de feligreses “tiende a ayudarme a ser un poco más amable”. Amable, dijo, “pero sin que necesariamente esté andando con miramientos”.Reconociendo que la mayoría de los predicadores sienten tensión en un momento o en otro, Manning dijo: “bastante francamente, a veces sólo quiero rendirme y salir gritando, pienso ¿a quien le beneficia eso? ¿Es por eso precisamente que subo al púlpito y puedo hacer eso? Bien, eso es lo a lo que soy llamado a hacer; levantarme y expresar mi propia frustración”.El Rdo. Bernard J. Owens, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church] en Greensboro, Carolina del Norte, se muestra de acuerdo. “La cosa más profética y pastoral que podemos hacer es hablar sincera y honradamente”, dijo él en una entrevista con ENS. “Y yo no quiero decir que debamos ser el profeta Amós todos los domingos, sino más bien ser auténticos” y basarnos en la verdad de la Escritura.Owens recientemente trató de desmentir la noción de que un sermón es “el momento en que una persona investida de santidad nos dice todo lo que debemos saber”. En “La luz del mundo: mi primer sermón para la era de Trump”, una opinión que él escribió para la revista digital Slate, Owens afirmó que la predicación debe basarse en el estudio, la oración y las relaciones.“Un sermón es sólo una pieza de un proceso vitalicio, y de muchas capas, de edificar una comunidad”, escribió. “Incluso los acontecimientos más difíciles pueden servir también como oportunidades para fortalecer esa comunidad, pero eso exige dosis iguales de valor y de humildad”.El Rdo.. Bernard J. Owens, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Andrés, en Greensboro, Carolina del Norte, dice que simplemente predicar acerca de discordias en política no es a lo que él ha sido llamado. Foto cortesía de Bernard J. Owens.Owens se siente llamado a “edificar una comunidad más sagrada y amorosa que realmente sí incluya a todo el mundo dentro de la congregación”. Al mismo tiempo, él sabe que “si no reconocemos que están ocurriendo algunas cosas realmente inquietantes, entonces sencillamente estamos ignorándolas” y siendo inauténticos.No obstante, se trata de un acto de equilibrio, dijo él. Predicar sólo sobre los acontecimientos actuales puede degradar las relaciones que un predicador ha forjado en la congregación. También contribuye a la sensación de fatiga que muchas personas a ambos lados de la baranda del comulgatorio sienten respecto a mantenerse al tanto de todos los problemas y sus respuestas. Además, tal predicación puede simplemente afirmar el hecho de que la gente está dividida.A esto se agrega, dijo Manning, que puede resultar contraproducente. “Yo creo que es importante decir la verdad, pero creo que es importante decir la verdad de una manera en que las personas puedan oírla”, apuntó. “Si sólo utilizas consignas, si sólo te vales de un material que suena como si reciclaras algún manifiesto político, la gente enseguida le cierra sus oídos a eso”.Manning añadió que es una cosa mostrar cómo el evangelio critica las últimas decisiones o directrices políticas, “y otra cosa es preguntarse de qué manera, como pueblo del evangelio, encarnamos nuestra vidas ahora. ¿Cómo llevamos a cabo el testimonio del evangelio?”Dos predicadoras que enseñan el arte de la homilética en seminarios episcopales se mostrarían de acuerdo.En presencia de lo que ella llamó “una gigantesca energía que nos exige ser reactivos”, la Rda. Linda Clader dijo “mi consejo a los predicadores, y a mí misma, es “respirar profundamente, dar un paso atrás y realmente recordar que nuestro trabajo es predicar el evangelio”.La Rda. Linda Clader, profesora emérita de homilética en la Escuela de Teología Eclesiástica del Pacífico, dice que los predicadores deben ser fieles a las lecturas del día y al llamado a edificar la comunidad cristiana frente a una cultura dividida. Foto de la Escuela de Teología Eclesiástica del Pacífico.Clader, que es profesora emérita de homilética en la Escuela de Teología Eclesiástica del Pacífico, le dijo a ENS que los predicadores deben ser diligentes respecto a comenzar con las lecturas del día. “Eso no significa que uno no vaya a responder a algo que sea lo bastante insensato, pero nuestro quehacer es edificar la comunidad, edificar una comunidad cristiana y esa es una comunidad que se basa en el evangelio”, afirmó ella.Sin embargo, dijo Clader, los predicadores no deberían caer en la trampa de confrontar lo que dice Donald Trump con lo que dice Jesús. En lugar de eso, los predicadores deben proyectar una visión mayor de “la justicia, el perdón y el amor de Dios”.El basar sus sermones en ese mensaje del evangelio les da autoridad a los predicadores, afirmó ella. “Esa es la plataforma de autoridad sobre la que puedes alzarte porque la has estudiado y la has estudiado y sí sabes algo acerca de lo que dice y lo que significa”, recalcó.La Rda. Ruthanna Hooke, profesora asociada de homilética en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia, dijo que resultaba fácil que los predicadores usaran incorrectamente el púlpito como sus plataformas personales. “De manera que la Escritura se convierte en una especie de fundamento al que uno tiene que someterse —a las exigencias del texto— para que te mantengas en contacto con Dios como la fuente de la predicación”.Clader y Hooke dijeron que el texto, en palabras de Hooke, es una piedra de toque decisiva. “Pero, habiendo dicho eso, el texto nos empuja hacia algunos lugares muy incómodos”, añadió Hooke.La diferencia, en palabras de Manning, es que “el evangelio es intrínsecamente político, pero no político partidista estadounidense”.Manning dijo que él cree que lo que él está llamado a hacer es recordarle a la gente que “es nuestra teología y nuestro pacto bautismal los que conforman nuestra comprensión del mundo y no al revés, y eso resulta difícil para la gente porque está expuesta al relato estadounidense toda la semana y tal vez al relato evangélico durante una hora”.La Rda. Ruthanna Hooke, profesora asociada de homilética en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia, dice que la Escritura debe ser la piedra de toque a partir de la cual los predicadores deben abordar humildemente su tarea. Foto de Shawn Evelyn/Seminario Teológico de Virginia.El evangelio, dijo Hooke, es ciertamente político en sus implicaciones y aplicaciones, y el reto del predicador es explicarlo de un modo que se “sea universalmente audible mientras, al mismo tiempo, sea realmente el evangelio”.Hooke les enseña a sus estudiantes que si van a predicar un “sermón político” ellos “en verdad tienen que implicarse”. Los predicadores tienen que preguntarse si harían lo que piden de sus escuchas. “Esa es una importante medida de humildad de parte del predicador y ayuda con estas cuestiones muy divisivas”, apuntó ella, añadiendo que la indignación a la que no sigue la acción no se presta para ayudar a la comunidad a encontrar soluciones”.Ayuda, dijo ella, recordar que cualquier sermón dado es parte de la relación del predicador con la comunidad. “Si las personas realmente saben que te ocupas de ellos, hay una probabilidad mucho mayor de que escuchen cuando dices cosas que imponen desafíos”, señaló.El obispo Eugene Sutton, de la Diócesis de Maryland, tuvo eso en cuenta en una carta pastoral de febrero en la que instaba a los predicadores, entre otras cosas, a dar testimonio del evangelio y a reconocer que hay otros testigos. Recuérdenle a  sus oyentes, dijo, que ustedes quieren seguir conversando con ellos y luego muestren una disposición a escuchar, a cambiar de opinión y a arrepentirse si fuere necesario.“Muestren algún valor”, dijo Sutton. “Es más fácil a largo plazo para su ministerio pastoral que la cobardía”.El obispo le pidió a sus oyentes que mostraran la misma disposición para escuchar, cambiar de opinión y arrepentirse, pero también estudiar las lecturas del domingo y reconocer a Jesús “como maestro espiritual y político”.“No sean tan severos con sus predicadores”, dijo Sutton, “ellos realmente intentan decir y hacer lo correcto”.Y, recalcaba, lo hacen en aproximadamente los 12 minutos que la mayoría de los predicadores episcopales dedica al sermón.Hooke recordaba a los predicadores que el púlpito no siempre podría ser el mejor lugar desde el cual ahondar en los temas de actualidad porque el sermón es un monólogo, no verdaderamente una conversación. Podría ser mejor, dijo ella, plantear un asunto durante la predicación y luego auspiciar conversaciones en otros momentos. La iglesia, dijeron Manning y Hooke, puede darle acogida a conversaciones difíciles entre personas con puntos de vista contrarios. Las iglesias podrían llegar a ser uno de los pocos lugares donde personas de distintas mentalidades pueden reunirse para una conversación, apuntó Hooke.Ser cristiano en tiempos como estos significa encontrar un terreno común y valores esenciales, dice el obispo primado Michael Curry. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Ya sea en el púlpito o durante un foro sobre educación de adultos, el primer paso debe ser el reconocimiento de que las divisiones del mundo existen dentro de una congregación. “Puede ser pastoralmente útil hablar realmente acerca de algo en lo que todos están pensando pero temen expresar”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry durante una reciente conferencia de prensa cuando un reportero le pregunto acerca de los retos de predicar a congregaciones y dirigirlas durante este período de división.La próxima pregunta, dijo Curry, es “¿de qué manera uno avanza y ofrece una palabra y ayuda a las personas a navegar en un contexto que es complejo —moralmente complejo?”Y como sacerdote parroquial y luego como obispo de Carolina del Norte, dijo Curry, el aprendió que llamar a las personas a mantenerse en un terreno común contribuía a darle a todo el mundo algunos instrumentos de navegación.“Yo abordaba eso intentando primero identificar y expresar lo que son los valores esenciales que se reflejan en las enseñanzas de Jesús de Nazaret, en las que nosotros, como seguidores de Jesús, creemos”, subrayó.“Reclamar el espacio de los valores y las enseñanzas de Jesús no significa que tengamos todas las respuestas a cómo resolver el problema o el asunto”, advirtió. Significa más bien reclamar el terreno común, al menos para los cristianos, y buscar a personas de otras tradiciones religiosas y a personas sin tradiciones religiosas que no obstante sostengan los mismos valores.Ese enfoque tiene en cuenta el hecho de que “todo el mundo tiene algo que contribuir y que saldremos con algo mejor cuando hacemos eso”.Curry puso algunos ejemplos. ¿Cómo podría, preguntó, un estudio de la parábola del Buen Samaritano contribuir al debate sobre el cuidado de la salud? Los cristianos conocen la llamada Regla de Oro de Jesús de Mateo 7:12 en la cual él dice a sus seguidores que hagan a otros lo que querrían que otros les hicieran. “Ahora bien, si eres un legislador, tienes que hacerte la pregunta de política social de si esta decisión es algo que yo querría que alguien me hiciera”, dijo Curry.“Amar a tu prójimo como a ti mismo significa no sólo amar a la persona a quien la legislación está intentando ayudar, sino también amar a la persona que discrepa contigo”, apuntó. Republicanos y demócratas deben verse como prójimos, tal como lo definiera Jesús. “Si uno quiere ser cristiano”, enfatizó.“La verdad es que no somos el Partido Republicano en oración y no somos el Partido Demócrata en oración”, recalcó Curry. “Somos el Movimiento de Jesús y eso marca una diferencia”.(Los episcopales pueden participar en debates políticos y promoción social en el nivel federal, y en algunos casos en el nivel estatal, uniéndose a la Red Episcopal de Política Pública.)– La Rda.

Photo: Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The dioceses of Washington and Virginia announced March 11 that they are closing or canceling services at more than 250 churches in the nation’s capital and suburban Virginia and Maryland, including Washington National Cathedral, for at least two weeks, as a sweeping precaution to help stem the spread of the new coronavirus, or COVID-19, which earlier in the day was declared a global pandemic.Washington Bishop Mariann Budde explained her decision in a letter to the diocese, first reported by The Washington Post. The “health, safety and well-being of our people” is her first concern, she said, and congregations will be encouraged to explore online worship alternatives.“Two things are now clear: Social distance is needed to stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and the populations most at risk are highly represented among our congregations and clergy,” Budde’s letter says. All 88 congregations in her diocese will close effective March 12, and she hopes they will resume worship services by March 29.In the Diocese of Virginia, one of three Episcopal dioceses in the state, Bishop Suffragan Susan Goff ordered all 179 of the diocese’s congregations to cancel worship services in response to the coronavirus, according to her letter to the diocese. Health officials in regions of the United States with high case counts have warned that large gatherings could fuel the virus’s spread.“The coronavirus is now a pandemic and we are responsible for one another, especially for the most vulnerable among us,” said Goff, who became the diocese’s ecclesiastical authority after the retirement of Bishop Shannon Johnston.The mass closings and cancellations at churches in the Washington area – and the potential for a domino effect of church closings across the United States – have amplified efforts to equip congregations with the tools and techniques to maintain worshipping communities, even when gathering in person isn’t possible. Leaders across The Episcopal Church, after focusing early in the outbreak on changes to liturgical practices such as suspending use of the common cup at communion, now are concentrating more intently on video streaming options so parishioners can remain connected without leaving home.The latest developments add to the widespread disruptions to parish life at Episcopal congregations, and at least three congregations have canceled services because their rectors were found to have the virus.Episcopal News Service’s complete coronavirus coverage can be found here.The Episcopal Church online resource page for coronavirus response is here.The Rev. Timothy Cole, rector at Christ Church Georgetown in Washington, D.C., was identified this week as the first confirmed COVID-19 case in the nation’s capital. An organist at the church also received a coronavirus diagnosis. Hundreds of parishioners who visited or attended services at the church on Feb. 24 or between Feb. 28 and March 3 were urged by city health officials to self-quarantine for 14 days due to possible exposure there to the coronavirus.The Rev. Timothy Cole, rector of Christ Church Georgetown. Photo: Christ Church, via FacebookAmong those advised to isolate themselves were a group of seminarians and two faculty members from Virginia Theological Seminary who had recently attended a Lenten series at Christ Church Georgetown. VTS and other Episcopal seminaries have canceled in-person classes and moved instruction online as a precaution.On March 11, the Diocese of Fort Worth issued a statement reporting that the Rev. Robert Pace, rector at Trinity Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas, has been hospitalized with the virus. It is the first reported case of COVID-19 in Tarrant County, Texas’ third-largest county, which includes Fort Worth.Trinity is closed until further notice, and all services for Sunday, March 15 (along with a Lenten service scheduled for March 11) have been canceled. After consulting with health officials, the diocese said the only congregants who may have contracted the virus from Pace are about 45 people who attended a Lenten program he spoke at on March 4.Trinity’s staff has notified those people, who should receive calls from the Tarrant County Public Health Department about next steps, the diocese said. Health officials do not believe there is any risk to the rest of the congregation. Trinity’s preschool is currently on spring break and the students were not exposed to the virus, the diocese says.“Robert is improving,” Fort Worth Bishop Scott Mayer, who visited Pace in the hospital, told ENS by phone. “You can tell that he is gaining strength and is in improved spirits. … And he is very grateful for all the prayers and the concern.”The Rev. Robert Pace. Photo: Diocese of Fort WorthTrinity’s other clergy members are being evaluated but are not officially in quarantine as of March 11, Mayer told ENS. Mayer said he is not aware of any other cases of the virus in his diocese, including among the people who attended the March 4 service at Trinity. The parish and the diocese are working to set up some form of virtual worship for the congregation, he added.“The main thing that I’m trying to convey is the reality that we’re all really connected,” Mayer said. “We really need to do what we can to protect those that are most vulnerable.”According the diocese, Pace first started feeling sick several days after returning from the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes (CEEP) annual conference, which was held in Louisville, Kentucky, Feb. 19-22. Cole, the Christ Church Georgetown rector, also attended that conference.A third priest who attended the conference, the Rev. Janet Broderick, also was reported March 11 to have the virus. Broderick, rector at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, California, has been hospitalized for treatment, the Diocese of Los Angeles said in an email newsletter. Worship services at All Saints’ are suspended while the congregation waits for further guidance from public health officials.The Rev. Janet Broderick. Photo: Diocese of Los AngelesLos Angeles Bishop John Harvey Taylor was one of several bishops, including Budde, who urged congregations to stop using the common cup for wine while the outbreak is spreading.“We’ll be following the best advice of health officials; supporting the leaders and people of All Saints’ Beverly Hills as they make decisions about their own health and safety, and discerning, together with all our 200 institutions in six counties, about the best way forward,” Taylor said in the diocese’s email.No evidence has been released so far to suggest the three priests contracted the virus at the CEEP conference. CEEP on March 11 issued an update to conference attendees saying it was continuing to work with public health authorities.“At this time the guidance we have received from health agencies has not changed,” CEEP Executive Director Joe Swimmer said in his email to attendees. “Simply being at the conference with someone not showing symptoms is not a risk factor.”COVID-19, with symptoms similar to those of influenza, had been confirmed in 113 countries as of March 11, according to the World Health Organization. Although much remains unknown about the virus, early indications suggest that most cases – more than 80 percent, in one study – are mild and do not require hospitalization.Even so, more than 110,000 cases and 4,000 deaths have been reported globally, most of them in China, though growing outbreaks in other countries have prompted escalating emergency measures to contain or slow its spread. German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned March 11 that up to 70 percent of Germans could contract the virus.The entire nation of Italy is on lockdown, with curfews, travel restrictions and other measures in place to minimize public interaction. The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe is adapting to the “unprecedented” cancellation of all religious services ordered by the Italian government as part of the lockdown – first in some of Italy’s northern provinces on March 8, then throughout the entire country on March 9 – according to the Rt. Rev. Mark Edington, bishop of the convocation. Two of the convocation’s nine parishes and two of its 12 missions are in Italy.Edington and the bishops of the Church of England’s Diocese in Europe are coordinating their response to the pandemic, since their parishes operate side by side throughout the continent, sometimes in the same cities. Churches in Italy can remain open for private prayer as long as people remain three feet away from each other, but no services can be held until April 3, although that date may change, Edington and Bishop David Hamid of the Diocese in Europe wrote in a letter to their clergy. That includes everything from the Eucharist to funerals.Asked whether he thought Italian authorities had gone too far, Edington told ENS it was a tough call.“I cannot imagine what it would be like to be in their position,” Edington said. “This thing has so quickly moved in Italy from 200 cases to 10,000 cases. … What I can say is it’s extremely painful for our parishes and for our pastors. We have a natural instinct to want to be supportive to each other in a time of crisis, and it feels like that has been taken away from us, and that’s really hard. And we’re trying to find ways to be pastorally present to our communities and also the people who are just going to be affected by this economically.”One of the convocation’s parishes – St. James Episcopal Church in Florence, Italy – livestreamed its regular Sunday service on March 8, before the national lockdown. In addition to those physically present, about 300 people watched the service on the livestream, Edington said. And as far as funerals, Edington said it is technically possible to have a small graveside service with just family members present.Edington said his clergy and congregants are resilient and are finding new ways to foster community in the face of the crisis.“We need to continue with work like that and find ways to be as present with each other as we can,” he said.In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 938 confirmed cases and at least 29 deaths as of March 11.Some Episcopal congregations regularly stream their services online, including Washington National Cathedral. The cathedral is the seat of the presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, and it boasts an estimated 418,000 visitors and worshippers each year. For the next two Sundays, Budde and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will take turns presiding at services streamed from the cathedral without anyone in attendance, according to the [email protected] will be closed through March 25, along with all @washdio parishes, in a bid to stem the spread of #COVID19 #Coronavirus Full statement: https://t.co/inGW0X9GyI pic.twitter.com/8XIQcXEKpQ— Washington National Cathedral (@WNCathedral) March 11, 2020With the coronavirus outbreak escalating, other congregations already have begun experimenting with those options, from Facebook Live to the video meeting tool Zoom. When coronavirus was diagnosed in a member of Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Mercer Island, just east of Seattle, Washington, the church chose to cancel its worship services. Its rector, the Rev. Elizabeth Riley, hosted a live video of a Morning Prayer service March 8 on Facebook. A “virtual coffee hour” followed on Zoom.Budde told ENS in a phone interview March 10, before her announcement of church closings, that the diocese would begin ramping up its online worship efforts due to the coronavirus’s spread. “Even the smaller churches, they know how to do a Facebook Live,” she said.Now that she has ordered in-person worship to cease, the diocese will be working with its congregations to ensure they have the resources and guidance to keep in contact with parishioners, including through online worship.“I understand the spiritual and financial implications, the headaches and frustrations, and I share this disappointment that we, as worshipping communities, will not be able to gather,” Budde said in her letter announcing the closings.“However, I am equally aware of the responsibilities we have as people of faith who follow the one who came among us as one who served. Not only do we have a moral, religious and civic obligation to take whatever steps are necessary to aid our communities in stemming the spread of this virus, we exist in order to love and serve our neighbors. It is what faith communities do best in times of need.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.
