VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Episcopal News Service] Relatos de fe y de testimonio personal animaron la histórica “Nueva Reunión Comunitaria”, que tuviera lugar en San Diego, California, del 29 de febrero al 3 de marzo, a la que asistieron unas 300 personas —asiáticos, negros, latinos y nativoamericanos— clérigos y laicos de todo el ámbito de la Iglesia Episcopal.El compromiso comunitario, el centrarse en la misión y la colaboración, estuvieron al tope de la agenda del evento, que sesionaría bajo el lema de “Reclamar nuestra misión; reinterpretar nuestros contextos y renovar nuestras comunidades”.Organizada a través de la Oficina de Ministerios Étnicos de la Iglesia Episcopal, la reunión constituyó un desafío para los entusiastas participantes —así como para la Iglesia en general— de abrazar la renovación a través de la misión creadora, compartir recursos y responder al contexto étnico y comunitario.“Había la sensación de que la oportunidad estaba madura para esta histórica reunión”, dijo el Rdo. Winfred Vergara, misionero para el Ministerio Episcopal Asioamericano. “Es sencillamente un tiempo de compartir alegrías y esperanzas y de repensar posibilidades”.“Debemos encontrar resonancia en las experiencias mutuas, porque hemos experimentado el rechazo, y porque tenemos la capacidad para la acogida y el abrazo”, afirmó. “El Espíritu está aquí, expresando que podemos acercarnos los unos a los otros debido a las dolorosas experiencias comunes y a la visión común de la esperanza”.Todos fueron bienvenidos a asistir a la reunión, aunque el foco era el multiculturalismo. La idea para el evento surgió de los festivales multiétnicos de la Convención General y de las conferencias de discernimiento vocacional para jóvenes adultos de color, pero [este] fue el primer evento en su clase de desarrollo de liderazgo, añadió Vergara.La obispa primada, Katharine Jefferts Schori, saludo a los participantes el 1 de marzo a través de Skype desde Taiwán, mientras Bonnie Anderson, la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados, se dirigió a la reunión durante la sesión plenaria del 3 de marzo sobre vocación y discernimiento laicos. El obispo Stacy Sauls, jefe de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, presidió un oficio de comisión, y entre los presentadores se contaban el Muy Rdo. Michael Battle, del Instituto de Batalla por la Paz [PeaceBattle Institute Inc.],  de Raleigh, Carolina del Norte, y el Dr. Rodger Nishioka, profesor asociado de educación cristiana en el Seminario Teológico de Columbia, en Decatur, Georgia.La Rda. Angela Ifill, misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal para el ministerio de los negros, dijo que ella esperaba que los participantes continuarían utilizando percepciones adquiridas y que aprovecharían futuras oportunidades “de aunar esfuerzos para entenderse unos a otros a partir de nuestras diversas comunidades y para apreciar la perspectiva de cada cual… y un sentido de que esto es bueno y que necesitamos seguir haciéndolo”.Recuperar la misión: una historia de RichmondLa Rda. Lynne Washington, vicaria de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s] en Richmond, Virginnia, describió cómo la congregación se esforzaba en recuperar su misión en medio de un contexto de cambios.Inicialmente, la iglesia de San Pedro, fundada en 1858, parecía no ajustarse a su comunidad adyacente, donde el 40 por ciento de los residentes viven en viviendas municipales y no se gradúan de secundaria. La mayoría de los feligreses de la congregación eran graduados universitarios y venían de otras zonas a trabajar a la ciudad, explicó ella.Luego de un extensivo adiestramiento en el discipulado, encuestas congregacionales y comunitarias y revisiones de la misión de la Iglesia, Washington rediseñó la liturgia dominical para ajustarse a las necesidades de la comunidad.“Si tienes una comunidad donde el 40 por ciento de las personas no han terminado la escuela secundaria, el libro de oración es una piedra de tropiezo”, afirmó ella. “El Himnario de 1982 es una piedra de tropiezo. De manera que contraté a una músico bautista y ella ha sido maravillosa porque toca una música con que la comunidad puede relacionarse”.El folleto del oficio se usa como una herramienta pedagógica y ella adaptó el popular rito eucarístico [U2charist] a una “misa experimental llamada la ‘Misa de la Tierra, el Viento y el Fuego’.  Mi primera idea cuando vi U2charist fue, está bien, pero no va a funcionar aquí”, señaló Washington.“Tenemos una asistencia promedio los domingos de 45 personas. Pero en la Misa de la Tierra, el Viento y el Fuego teníamos más de 125 personas. Tal vez ahora estamos entendiendo algo. Tal vez es una herramienta de evangelización. Sólo sé que el domingo funcionó”.La iglesia invirtió en una página web y en publicidad en los periódicos de la comunidad afroamericana, re-energizó su actividad de extensión comunitaria y deliberadamente se concentró en los ministerios de jóvenes y ancianos. Sin embargo, los recursos limitados hicieron improbable la contratación de un líder de juventud o de un director de educación cristiana; ella espera compartir materiales con otras congregaciones “y no necesariamente iglesias episcopales”, dijo en la reunión.“He pedido que vengan misioneros a la zona deprimida de la ciudad y aprendan de nosotros”, añadió Washington, quien hasta hace poco era la directora ejecutiva del Centro Comunitario de San Pedro y San Pablo. Este centro, fundado por la iglesia, se mudó hace varios años del salón parroquial a un edificio de enfrente recién construido. “Sé que es posible porque muchos de estos mismos individuos trabajan de voluntarios en el centro comunitario dando clases a los niños”.La buena noticia es que la congregación es receptiva al cambio, añadió. “Cuando comenzamos este proceso, esta [consigna] se convirtió en un mantra para nosotros: para crecer tenemos que estar dispuestos a cambiar. También teníamos muy claro que no aspirábamos a que la diócesis nos rescatara, y que eso es importante como congregación”.“Tenemos nuestro propio sentido de independencia, porque durante muchos, muchos años tuvimos este ADN paternalista de que alguien iba ayudarnos o que alguien iba a arreglarnos. Esa actitud nos despojaba de gran parte de nuestra fuerza, y ahora la hemos recuperado”.El obispo Jim Mathes, de San Diego, que le dio la bienvenida al grupo, dijo que la diócesis también está en proceso de relocalizar su sede en la zona de Ocean Beach, donde actualmente ofrece 3.000 contactos de servicio al mes a través de grupos de 12 pasos, comidas, asistencia médica y legal e incluso cortes de pelo.“Hemos establecido una misión y ministerio allí. Ahora vamos a reunir a los que han sido servidos y a encontrarles congregación”, señaló.Contextualmente, la diócesis identificó el foco de su misión como activismo y acción en las áreas de inmigración y problemas fronterizos, pobreza y falta de vivienda y ayuda a los veteranos.Ingresar en la comunidad de una manera nueva es fascinante, apuntó él. “Este sitio me va a cambiar…el liderazgo será transformado por este enfoque misional. Toda la comunidad será transformada”.Evangelización y renovación comunitariaEscuchar las historias personales de fe de otros es uno de los más convincentes testimonios evangélicos de que disponemos; sin embargo, con frecuencia los episcopales ni siquiera contemplan esa opción, dijo el Rdo. Anthony Guillén, misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal a cargo del ministerio latino/hispano.“No nos damos cuenta de los magníficos vendedores que somos”, afirmó. Desde computadoras a películas hasta restaurantes, la gente siempre está hablando acerca de sus opciones preferidas, ofreciendo una especie de charlas promocionales sin siquiera darse cuenta, apuntó.“Vendemos todos los días, al decirle a la gente donde deben ir para conseguir todas las cosas, salvo lo que proclamamos como buenas nuevas”, añadió Guillén, quien espera que la reunión de San Diego ejemplificará “una imagen de lo que será la Iglesia”.“Si tuviera una magnífica comida,  se lo contaría a la gente y le diría dónde encontrarla. Tenemos que empezar por decirle adonde ir para satisfacer el hambre que tenemos en nuestras almas”.Un encuentro con un amable capellán en una escuela anglicana de Hong Kong resultó tan poderosa que 30 de los 33 estudiantes budistas pidieron ser bautizados en la graduación, recordó Mimi Wu, coordinador de la red de Ministerio Asiáticos de la VIII Provincia.Ella fue uno de esos estudiantes. “Yo digo que la evangelización es el amor en acción y yo lo he visto”, dijo Wu, de la diócesis de Hawái. “El capellán nos pastoreó, nos dio mucho amor y comprensión”.Para el Rdo. Canónigo René Barraza, la evangelización vino en la forma de invitaciones persistentes de parte de amigos, que se mantuvieron invitándolo a la iglesia de San Atanasio [St. Athanasius] en Los Ángeles, donde él ahora presta servicios como pastor.“Cuando llegué de México, me sentí fuera de lugar allí. No me gustaba (San Atanasio) en lo más mínimo”, recordaba Barraza, de 69 años. “Era una estructura de madera, pequeña y oscura. Estaba acostumbrado a grandes iglesias catedrales catolicorromanas con vidrieras emplomadas. Ésta me asustó. Decidí no volver. Pero mis amigos siguieron invitándome.“Ahora me alegro de haber vuelto con una actitud receptiva. Me invitaron a leer y luego a servir de acólito y una cosas me llevó a la otra y he estado creciendo en mi fe desde entonces”.El Rdo. Joseph Jerome dijo que la evangelización había significado haberse acercado deliberadamente a los demás en la comunidad de Sunnyside en la diócesis de Long Island, donde él es rector de la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints Church], una congregación mayoritariamente anglosajona.Para ellos esto ha significado ser deliberadamente acogedores y desestimar el dicho popular de que “hay dos lados en Sunnyside, el mío y el otro lado ”, añadió Jerome, que es negro y sirve como presidente de la Comisión Hispana de la diócesis.La evangelización para el Rdo. Edgar Gutiérrez advino en la forma de la cálida acogida que él recibió. “Soy un homosexual que dejó la Iglesia Católica debido a su posición respecto a las mujeres y los homosexuales”, afirmó.El rector de la iglesia de San Lucas, una congregación bilingüe y multiétnica de Boston, dijo que él había sentido “un llamado al sacerdocio desde que era niño”.La reunión ofreció una oportunidad de “recargar”, así como “una sensación de familia, de la manera en que una familia nos alimenta, y una fuente de información e inspiración”.Reconocer el multiculturalismo; la importancia de la interconexiónMarcel Pereira, de 31 años, asistió a la reunión de la diócesis de Curitiba en Brasil y descubrió que “los problemas que ustedes enfrentan en Estados Unidos son muy semejantes a lo que vemos en Brasil.“El mundo multicultural en que vivimos y la manera en que abrazamos la diversidad sin convertirnos en otra cosa son sólo algunos de los problemas”, dijo.“Las soluciones que encontramos respecto a la Nueva Comunidad es una respuesta para todas las otras partes de la Iglesia”, agregó. “Son los mismos problemas del siglo XXI, acoger a todos de manera radical, cambiar la lengua y la cultura. Además de la tecnología. Solíamos estar orientados hacia el libro; ahora estamos orientados hacia la imagen y tenemos que entender el modo de abrazar esta cultura”.Para el Rdo. Brandon Mauai, de 27 años, la interconexión de compartir historias y materiales lo atrajo a la conferencia de San Diego.“Todos tenemos diferentes historias de los sitios de donde venimos que muestran nuestra diversidad. Yo tengo un origen asiático, nativoamericano y polinesio”, afirmó Mauai, que sirve como ministro de la juventud en la Reserva Nativoamericana de Standing Rock en Dakota del Sur. “Mi experiencia es la experiencia filipina en Hawái y ayuda a que compartamos nuestras historias unos con otros y con la Iglesia Episcopal”, afirmó.“Ayuda a cultivar la fe, y la esperanza y el amor tal como lo vivimos a diario y nos ayuda a mostrarlo a los demás, a tener un efecto de onda, especialmente con la juventud de la reserva que necesita desesperadamente esa esperanza”.El obispo Dave Bailey dijo que la conferencia representa otro paso en el camino a través de “la autoconciencia y la autodeterminación” para su diócesis de Navajolandia, así como para otras comunidades con problemas.“Es importante para nosotros en esta reunión asumirnos como la Nueva Comunidad al apoyarnos mutuamente de una manera nueva y vivificante, reconociendo que no tenemos que estar en competencia, sino confirmar lo que tenemos en común al tiempo que apreciamos aquellos que [a cada cual] nos distingue”, dijo.“Creo que esto es un nuevo comienzo para la vida de la Iglesia y de muchas maneras puede ser vivificador para muchas de nuestras diócesis que pueden estar estancadas”.Diane Bruce, la obispa sufragánea de Los Ángeles llamó a la reunión “el nuevo rostro de la Iglesia”. Ella vino “a aprender y a apoyar la conferencia. Esto es sólo el comienzo”, afirmó. “Espero que haya más de estas conferencias y que nos congreguemos con más personas y sus obispos”.Para Bernadette Wyche, de la Iglesia Episcopal Africana de Santo Tomás [St Thomas] en Filadelfia, y Trevor Bryan II de San Lucas [St. Luke’s]en Nueva Orleáns, cuyas congregaciones son compañeras a través de la Iniciativa de Nuevas Visiones del Ministerio de los Negros, esta asamblea fue una reunión de seguimiento.El programa asocia a prósperas congregaciones afroamericanas con iglesias más pequeñas. Bryan dijo que la reunión de San Diego “ofrecía muchísimo.“Siempre que tenemos la oportunidad de asociarnos con comunidades indígenas, asiáticas y latinas/hispanas descubrimos que tenemos muchas experiencias semejantes. Estamos en diferentes etapas de esas experiencias, pero hay mucho que podemos aprender de estos intercambios culturales”.Sarah Eagle Heart, la misionera nativoamericana de la Iglesia Episcopal dijo que la reunión le brindaba a los misioneros una oportunidad de contar sus propias historias porque “a veces la gente realmente no entiende lo que hacen los misioneros étnicos.“Nuestro trabajo cubre toda la gama desde la formación cristiana hasta la promoción social pasando por la preparación teológica”, dijo. Los misioneros han creado vídeos, siguió explicando ella, de manera que la Iglesia, en su más amplia acepción, tenga una idea del abanico de sus responsabilidades y de la importancia del ministerio étnico.Ella espera que la Iglesia “ayudará a recobrar la cultura y el lenguaje porque ambos formaron parte de la Iglesia que los quitó… y que, Dios mediante, ayudará a devolverlos”.Ella describió los talleres como el evento acerca del desarrollo de una comunidad basado en recursos y de programas de recuperación que ella supervisa, y que son “un convincente enfoque para desarrollar un círculo más amplio de personas a la cuales dedicarse… y alcanzar metas mediante el descubrimiento y la movilización de sus recursos ya presentes en esa comunidad”.Los cristianos indígenas tienen mucho que ofrecer, dijo Eagle Heart, que pertenece a la nación oglala lakota. “Nuestro pueblo tiene una multitud de dones y de sabiduría cultural que compartir con otros mientras lleva a cabo su trayectoria espiritual… tener una familia de partidarios que compartan retos comunes  y puedan alentarse mutuamente mientras continúan el proceso de ordenación o la preparación laical es una singular bendición.“Me siento orgulloso de mi equipo de misioneros étnicos que fueron proféticos en echar los cimientos de esta conferencia sobre formación cristiana a lo largo de toda la vida para garantizar que este evento fuese un momento de renovación transformadora.  La bendición de la salvia y el agua por la anciana diácona Reynelda James (Paiute) con las mujeres indígenas fue un momento sagrado de curación para el círculo de parientes reunidos”.Otros de los talleres que se presentaron incluían: misión y promoción; evangelización; jubileo y justicia social; viaducto de la escuela a la prisión, la doctrina del descubrimiento; ministerio de los bautizados; formación medioambiental; tecnología en el ministerio y mayordomía.Longkee Vang, de 24 años, de la iglesia de los Santos Apóstoles [the Holy Apostles], en San Pablo, Minnesota, que tiene la población hmong más grande de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo que ella se había sentido compelida a asistir a la reunión porque “yo quiero un cambio”.“Vine para mostrar que estoy en disposición de ayudar a producir un cambio, para estar entre las personas que sienten lo mismo que yo, para estar entre las personas influyentes que pueden hacer un cambio significativo en la Iglesia.“Quiero ver que se produce un auténtico cambio, con el que hemos soñado. Esta es una oportunidad de relacionarnos con otros que quieren cambiar también”.— La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service y está radicada en Los Ángeles.

Please enter your name here From the Lake Apopka Natural Gas DistrictWashington, D.C. – The American Public Gas Association (APGA) has named Samuel Davis Jr., General Manager & Chief Executive Officer for Lake Apopka Natural Gas District, as the First Vice Chair of its Board of Directors.Samuel Davis Jr.Mr. Davis was elected during the APGA Annual Meeting in Portland, Ore., where he began a one-year term.  APGA is a national, not-for-profit association of over 700 publicly-owned local distribution systems in 37 states.  APGA is the only trade association that solely represents the interests of public natural gas systems at the federal legislative and regulatory level. The following statement can be attributed to APGA President and CEO Bert Kalisch.“Mr. Davis brings to the APGA Board many years of experience working in the natural gas industry.  With his management skills and vast understanding of the issues facing natural gas utilities, Mr. Davis represents an important element of APGA’s leadership.  His leadership ability and knowledge of natural gas distribution utilities will serve our members and industry well.“With the many current natural gas issues being discussed in Congress, the administration and federal agencies, public natural gas systems are presented with numerous challenges and opportunities. Our current supply projection provides our country with a unique opportunity to utilize our domestic natural gas resources to reduce our energy dependence, increase overall energy efficiency, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. This is best done by both accommodating the greater direct-use of natural gas and putting more natural gas vehicles on the road.  Mr. Davis understands the issues we face and APGA looks forward to his leadership over the next year to meet these challenges and address the needs of natural gas consumers.”About the APGAAPGA is the national association of municipally and publicly-owned local distribution systems.

The only regulated bank that is also a registered general charity expects that the level of drawn loans, which currently stands at £37.9 million, will surpass £40 million for the first time ever in July.The bank’s outline results were reported ahead of its AGM and Open Day which take place on 19 May.During 2009 deposits also grew by 25% to £44 million, with over 500 new deposit accounts being opened by individuals and other charities.Chief Executive of Charity Bank, Malcolm Hayday said: “We have ambitious plans to increase our support to charities and other social profit organisations that address society’s needs. With inevitable public spending cuts to come, we will continue maximise our support to enterprises that are making a real difference to the communities and people they serve.”Charity Bank has headed New Philanthropy Capital’s call for charities to improve their social reporting. At its AGM, the bank will release details of the first social impact study of its lending activity. This report has found that 88% of borrowers reported that a Charity Bank loan had made a major or significant contribution to the achievement of their mission; 69% of borrowers had secured additional sources of funding as a result of the Charity Bank loan; and the number of volunteers working with the bank’s borrowers rose substantially, by more than 67%;Malcolm Hayday added: “I am especially pleased that private individuals are expressing their trust and confidence in a more transparent banking model that puts people at its heart. Charities too are recognising that they can make a difference not only through their day to day work but by also deciding where to place their money.”www.charitybank.org Tagged with: Finance Research / statistics Charity Bank reports record growth during 2009 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img Tagged with: Events 2012 is a year of celebration for Norwood’s fundraising team. In just two decades, it has organised 47 events in 18 different countries, during which participants have cycled, run and walked thousands of miles and raised a whopping £16million! To mark the 20th anniversary of the Norwood Challenges programme, the charity is calling on the whole community to go the extra mile to raise vital funds to help make this year’s events the biggest and best yet.The Challenges team has organised special bike rides in Israel – where the first international Challenge was held in 1992 – Sri Lanka, Croatia and, exclusively for younger YN supporters, Sicily. There are also plenty of local Challenges to choose from for fundraisers who prefer to stay closer to home, including the annual Capital to Coast Cycle Challenge for Charity from London to Brighton which this year includes a new 75-mile route starting at the iconic EDF Energy London Eye.Ian Tate, Norwood’s Business Development Manager for Challenges, said: “Norwood was the first charity to organise international fundraising challenges of this sort and we are extremely proud to be unveiling this special calendar of events as part of our 20th anniversary.

And where else would you be given the opportunity to get fit, have fun and make a difference to the lives of thousands of the most vulnerable people in the community, all at the same time?”The first Israel bike ride in November 1992 attracted 230 riders and raised more than £600,000 for Ravenswood, which at the time was a separate charity, and the Edinburgh Medical Missionary Society. It was the brainchild of Sir Erich Reich and is recognised as having sparked the trend in overseas sporting events in aid of charity. Sir Erich’s company Classic Tours organised the trip after being approached by his friend Maurice Collins, whose daughter was a resident at Ravenswood.“Despite odd problems en route, the event turned out to be an enormous success,” said Sir Erich. “The proof being that not only are both Norwood and the EMMS still involved in these challenges, but so are hundreds of charities across the UK.”Each international bike ride features a team of tandem riders which include people who use Norwood’s services. It is often the first time Norwood’s fundraisers meet the people who benefit from their support and can lead to life-long friendships.David Lightman, 50, from Finchley, has completed a Norwood cycle Challenge every year since 1992. He said: “I can honestly say that riding for Norwood has changed my life in ways that I could never imagine and I am determined to continue to do my very small bit for this noble and amazing cause. I have met the most astonishing and inspiring people and have ridden through deserts, mountains, jungle and bush.“Above all else, I have witnessed first-hand what can be achieved with love and determination. I am immensely proud of having done 21 Norwood international bile rides in 20 years and I hope and pray that I can continue to do so for many more.”David was recognised for his achievement during the recent Thailand Bike Ride, alongside Gordon Fox MBE, 75, who helped to establish the Norwood bike rides and completed his 30th international ride, in Thailand. Nigel Trumper, Sport and Leisure Coordinator at Ravenswood, has completed a staggering 42 rides.David, Gordon and Nigel were joined in Thailand by Michael Kuperberg, 40, from Harrow, who has been supported by Norwood into paid employment at its Deli in Hendon over recent months. Michael, who rode tandem with Ian Tate, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of cycling in Thailand and it was especially fun riding with Ian!  I am so grateful to Norwood for all their help and support – they have been really great to me and I hope to work here until I retire!”For more information and to book your place, visit www.norwood-challenges.org.ukcenter_img  43 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 16 January 2012 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Photo by Oscar Hernandez.TCU faculty have until 5 p.m. Wednesday to vote on taking the next steps to include DEI in the core as an essential competency.Electronic ballots were emailed to faculty Tuesday morning. All full-time faculty are asked to vote on the measure. After the ballots were sent, faculty received an email from Dr. Max Krochmal including a letter from Dr. Santiago Piñón, Jr. Piñón, who is a member of the Faculty Senate, called for the vote to be a “roll call” meaning people’s names would be recorded along with their votes.“I believe that our students deserve to know who voted for and the against the inclusion of DEI as an Essential Competency in the Core Curriculum,” Piñón’s letter said. However, Jan Quesada, Faculty Senate secretary, followed up with a note to faculty assuring them the ballot would be secret. “We do not deem it appropriate,” she said referring to a roll call ballot. The vote follows last Thursday’s Faculty Assembly where a quorum – 20 percent of full-time faculty – discussed the matter for an hour.The results of the vote are expected to be announced Thursday.If the faculty reaches an agreement to move forward with the proposal, the next step for the DEI committee will be to accumulate any necessary resources to initiate the vetting process for courses, said Sean Atkinson, chair of the Academic Excellence Committee.To learn more about the DEI core proposal, visit the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion website.
