Bishops object to Archbishop of Canterbury’s decision to exclude same-sex…

first_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Martinsville, VA Many of the major liturgies during the Lambeth Conference of bishops take place at Canterbury Cathedral, the seat of the archbishop of Canterbury and what is considered the “mother church” of the Anglican Communion. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Hendersonville, North Carolina] The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops said March 15 that it is “aggrieved and distressed” by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s decision to exclude the same-sex spouses of bishops invited to the 2020 Lambeth Conference.The bishops said they “are concerned by the use of exclusion as a means of building communion.”Welby says on the website of the gathering of Anglican Communion bishops that he prays that “the Lambeth Conference will reinvigorate the Communion.” The website notes that Welby has invited “every eligible bishop and spouse.”The majority of the house plans to go to Lambeth, according to the statement. The bishops said they want to continue to build relationships across the communion, “further the conversation around the various cultural expressions of marriage,” and “reflect our understandings of marriage, as well as our commitment to the dignity of all human beings, including the human rights of LGBTQ+ persons.”The statement passed on a voice vote. At least one bishop, Dan Martins of Springfield, could be heard voting no.Diocese of New York Bishop Assistant Mary Glasspool currently is The Episcopal Church’s only actively serving bishop who has a same-sex spouse. She addressed the house on March 14.The Rev. Thomas Brown is due to be ordained and consecrated on June 22 as the next bishop of the Diocese of Maine. He is married to the Rev. Thomas Mousin. The diocese elected Brown on Feb. 9. It is possible that Episcopal Church dioceses will elect bishops with same-sex spouses between now and the July 23, 2020, beginning of the Lambeth Conference.The only other active bishop in the Anglican Communion to whom Welby’s decision is known to apply is Diocese of Toronto Bishop Suffragan Kevin Robertson. He married Mohan Sharma, his partner of nearly 10 years, on Dec. 28, 2018.The statement from the House of Bishops includes a statement from the Bishops’ Spouses Planning Group saying they “join our voices with those in The Episcopal Church who have expressed their disappointment and dismay” with Welby’s decision. “We especially stand with our fellow spouse, Becki Sander, spouse of Bishop Mary Glasspool,” they said.“The spouse community understands that the Anglican Communion is not of one mind with regard to marriage, and that, in the life of the communion, this is a complex issue,” they said. “Exclusion of same-gender spouses, however, seems like a simplistic reaction to this complex issue. It saddens us that all are not welcome to walk, listen, and witness with us, and that all voices will not be heard at this gathering.”The bishops refused on a 44-42 show of hands to pass a second resolution calling on Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to ask Welby to change his mind. Curry told the house before the vote that he has had “one long conversation” with the archbishop and has exchanged letters with him as well.“I’ve got to be honest with you, I don’t expect he’ll change, but I’m willing to say that this house really would like it to be reconsidered if there is any way that it can be,” Curry said.The texts of the bishops’ statement and that of the spouses are here.Also at the meetingDiocese of San Joaquin Bishop David Rice speaks to the house on March 15, hours after the terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Rice once served as a vicar in the Diocese of Christchurch. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe bishops responded in a number of ways to the attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in which 49 died. The morning Eucharist included prayers for “the victims of the shootings in New Zealand, rest to their souls and peace to their families.”Diocese of San Joaquin Bishop David Rice, speaking at the opening of the morning session, called the attacks “an unprecedented act of terrorism.”Rice was the bishop of the Diocese of Waiapu in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia when he was called to San Joaquin. Born and raised in North Carolina, Rice was a Methodist pastor for eight years prior to his ordination in the Anglican Church.He began his Anglican priesthood in the Diocese of Christchurch. It is where his daughter and son went to kindergarten and primary school, he told the house. He and his wife, Tracy, have a home there to which they will retire, Rice said.“I find myself as I stand here before you – and I should have thought of this because I was up all night contacting family and friends to see if they’re OK – to have something to say, but I find I have no words.”He said he suggested to Diocese of Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas that Bishops Against Gun Violence reach out to Christchurch Bishop Peter Carrell and Richard Wallace who leads Te Wai Pounamu, the Maori diocese, “as an act of solidarity to send our love.”Rice evoked the statement from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who said of the victims of the attacks, “They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not. They have no place in New Zealand.”Rice said, “Say that with me, ‘They are us.’” The house responded loudly, and Rice stopped to compose himself.“Our immigrant and refugee sisters and brothers, say it with me, ‘They are us.’”The house responded, “They are us.”“Our Palestinian sisters and brothers, say it with me, ‘They are us.’”The house responded, “They are us.”“Those who even lose their way and do harm, say it with me, ‘They are us.’”The house responded, “They are us.”“Amen,” Rice said, returning to his table.The bishops prayed in silence and then were led in prayer by the Very Rev. Miguelina Howell, a chaplain to the house and dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford, Connecticut.Later in the day, the members of Bishops Against Gun Violence who were at the meeting gathered for the group’s weekly Facebook Live prayer service, held this Friday in the chapel at Kanuga Conference and Retreat Center. The vigil included remarks by Curry.The House of Bishops passed a resolution committing itself to upholding General Convention Resolution D034, which suspends for three years the canon (church law) that places a time limit on initiating proceedings in cases of clergy sexual misconduct against adults. The church has no time limit on reporting clergy sexual misconduct against children and youth under age 21.The resolution affirms that the bishops are “intent on having robust pastoral response in all matters regarding sexual misconduct regardless of when that alleged misconduct occurred.”Diocese of Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe later told the house that the group that planned the Liturgy of Listening during the 2018 General Convention has assembled a toolkit for other Episcopalians to use for similar services.“It is our responsibility as bishops to make sure everyone is safe and to respond well when that is not true,” she said.The bishops who have taken The Episcopal Church’s pledge to protect and renew the Earth and those who live on it gathered March 15 under the trees at Kanuga Conference and Retreat Center to record a video invitation for the rest of the church to join them. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe bishops also voted to “commit ourselves, individually and corporately to live the Way of Love, practices for a Jesus-centered life, and we ask every member of The Episcopal Church to consider joining us in meeting and following Jesus through the Way of Love.”Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe Bishop Suffragan Pierre Whalon proposed the resolution, saying it grew out of the previous three days of exploring the Way of Love.Whalon and some colleagues discussed how the Way of Love could develop into a de facto strategy for the church’s mission if the bishops committed to live the Way of Love and invited other Episcopalians to join them.“We’ve had a lot of things come down the pike that were supposed to be life-changing programs, and they came along and they just continued down the pike,” Whalon said. “I believe that the Way of Love could be considered yet another program” if the bishops and the entire church do not commit to the practices it outlines.More information about the Way of Love is here.Five women bishops who have been either ordained and consecrated or elected since General Convention in July 2018 attended the March meeting. They are Arizona Bishop Jennifer Reddall, Newark Bishop Carlye Hughes, West Tennessee Bishop-elect Phoebe Roaf, Colorado Bishop-elect Kimberly D. Lucas and Kansas Bishop Cathy Bascom.The Episcopal Church House of Bishops’ women of color who attended the Kanuga meeting pose March 14 for a photo.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe House of Bishops met March 12-15. Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce, the house’s secretary, said 132 bishops attended the meeting, including three bishops-elect. Bishops-elect who have received the canonically required consents to their ordination and consecration are invited to attend the meetings. Retired Bishop Suffragan of Ohio Arthur Williams was the senior bishop present.Five of the 10 bishops who form the 2018 class are women, marking the first time in the church’s history that a class is evenly divided between women and men. Four of the 10 are persons of color, Diocese of Newark Carlye Hughes, Ecuador Litoral Bishop-elect Cristóbal León Lozano (who did not attend the meeting), Colorado Bishop-elect Kimberly D. Lucas and West Tennessee Bishop-elect Phoebe Roaf.The gathering is the group’s annual spring meeting. The bishops normally meet each spring and fall during non-General Convention years. They will next meet Sept. 17-20. Spouses are traditionally part of the fall meeting.Other ENS coverage is here.– The Rev.

Las brigadas médicas de Cuba luchan contra la pandemia

first_imgLa Cuba socialista encarna el espíritu de solidaridad internacional mediante su constante ayuda médica a países de todo el mundo, especialmente a los afectados por el imperialismo. Esta no es solo una frase vacía. El verdadero significado de la solidaridad lo demuestran todos los días equipos de trabajadores de la salud cubanos, los médicos y enfermeras que han llevado sus habilidades y dedicación a otros países del Caribe, América Latina, África, Medio Oriente e incluso a Europa.Desde 1998, médicos y enfermeras cubanos han viajado a Haití para ayudar en emergencias de salud y después de desastres.Cuando los gobiernos solicitan ayuda en emergencias médicas, este país socialista y sus profesionales de la salud están ansiosos por brindarla. Combatiendo enfermedades o ayudando después de desastres, siempre que se ha necesitado ayuda médica, Cuba ha respondido rápidamente.Esto sigue siendo cierto durante la pandemia de COVID. Dado que los investigadores de Cuba han desarrollado tratamientos y medicamentos avanzados para hacer frente a la enfermedad, los cubanos están felices de compartirlos y de enviar equipos médicos para ayudar.La nación insular ha enviado 53 brigadas de trabajadores de la salud de las Brigadas Médicas Internacionales Henry Reeve a más de 40 países durante la emergencia pandémica mundial, además de cubanos que ya trabajan en 58 países. (Granma, 23 de noviembre)El líder cubano Fidel Castro estableció las Brigadas Henry Reeve en el 2005 para ayudar a las víctimas del huracán Katrina en Estados Unidos, pero Washington rechazó la ayuda de Cuba.Solidaridad con HaitíSe ha alcanzado un hito que merece un reconocimiento especial por parte de los partidarios de Cuba y Haití. Este diciembre, la Brigada Médica Cubana cumple 22 años brindando ayuda a Haití, el país más pobre del hemisferio occidental y una de las naciones más afectadas por la pobreza del mundo.En 1998, cuando el huracán Georges devastó Haití, Cuba dio un paso al frente y ofreció asistencia médica y de otro tipo. Los cubanos acordaron mantener médicos en Haití, durante el tiempo que fuera necesario, y capacitar a médicos haitianos que regresarían a casa y cuidarían de sus propias comunidades.En ese momento, el sistema de salud de Haití estaba empobrecido y la esperanza de vida promedio era de 54 años. Los estragos del colonialismo e imperialismo estadounidense y europeo habían dejado el sistema de salud pública casi inexistente.Con la ayuda de Cuba, se lograron mejoras en la salud pública y también en la alfabetización. Los cubanos ayudaron particularmente a las comunidades más pobres y remotas con tratamientos, medicamentos y educación para la salud.Cuando ocurrió un terremoto catastrófico en Haití en el 2010, 344 trabajadores de la salud cubanos ya estaban trabajando allí. La Brigada Henry Reeve envió 350 profesionales médicos más. Durante las primeras 72 horas, fueron los cubanos quienes brindaron atención médica de emergencia después del terremoto, realizaron cirugías y trataron a los heridos, trabajando junto a sus compañeros haitianos, antes de que llegara la ayuda de otros países.Bienvenidos a “amigos cubanos” La primavera pasada, después de que se informaran por primera vez los casos de COVID-19 en Haití, los médicos cubanos que ya estaban estacionados en Haití y listos para regresar a casa se quedaron para ayudar a una delegación recién llegada de 348 trabajadores de la salud. La ministra de Salud de Haití, Marie Greta Roy Clement, dio la bienvenida a los “amigos cubanos”, recordando su asistencia crítica después del terremoto del 2010, durante una epidemia de cólera provocada por los “cascos azules” de la ONU en octubre de ese año y después del mortal huracán Matthew en 2016. (Workers World, 15 de abril)Luis Olivero, coordinador de la Brigada Henry Reeve, dijo que los equipos cubanos han “enfocado nuestros esfuerzos en la lucha contra la pandemia”. Incluso cuando aumenta el número de casos, “el desarrollo de la enfermedad no es caótico, gracias al apoyo de nuestra Brigada”. (Telesur English, 4 de diciembre)Un contingente especial de profesionales de la salud cubanos ha apoyado a los médicos haitianos para contener la propagación viral. Desde que apareció COVID-19, los cubanos han tratado a los enfermos más graves. Elizabeth Segura, vicecoordinadora de la Brigada Henry Reeve, explicó: “Esto se debe a que el pueblo haitiano tiene mucha confianza en nosotros”.Decenas de organizaciones de paz, justicia, medicina y solidaridad han pedido que la Brigada Médica Internacional Henry Reeve sea galardonada con el Premio Nobel de la Paz por sus importantes contribuciones a los pueblos del mundo durante la actual pandemia.

How To Get What You Want

first_imgHome Commentary How To Get What You Want How To Get What You Want Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Trade Mission Promotes PorkNext articleGary Wilhelmi 6-15-12 Weekly Comments Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Ironically, there is a way that these groups could change the food system overnight: it is called incentives. If provided with a meaningful and tangible incentive, farmers would change what they produce and consumers would change what they eat.  Psychological and sociological research has shown that, with the right incentive, people will do almost anything. If Kroger, McDonalds, and others would pay pork producers more money for hogs not raised with crates, the industry would convert immediately. If HSUS wants more room for egg-laying chickens, pay more for those eggs and the problem will be solved.  If consumers really want GMO-free breakfast cereal, let them ante up a bit more for the box, and every variety will be GMO free. by Gary Truitt SHARE There are a lot of people today who are unhappy with what the American food production system is turning out. Some are unhappy with the fat content, some with the sugar content, some with the salt level, and some with the taste.   Others are unhappy with how the food is produced; they are against the use of GMO techniques, antibiotics, the pesticides used, or the kind of housing the animal has. There are also those who are unhappy about what is produced as well as where it is produced. Finally, there are those special people who are unhappy about all of the above and more, and who want us to go back to eating roots and berries we find in the wild. All these people are using a variety of techniques to try to achieve a change in the American diet and a change in the US agricultural production system. What they are missing is the one simple obvious way they achieve their goal.center_img So, the next time some pompous windbag is demanding changes in the way food is produced or consumed, unless they offer a positive incentive, don’t take them seriously. And, the next time you hear an elected official suggest  a negative incentive like taxes or regulations to limit what we can eat or how it can be raised, consider sending them a negative incentive, like not being re-elected. Another basic fact of human nature is that people respond better to positive incentives than negative ones. For example, a fat tax or sugar tax world work about as well on changing eating habits as higher cigarette taxes have reduced smoking… and that is not well. What has lowered smoking rates more than the higher cost of a pack of smokes is the fact that people live longer and have lower insurance rates, a positive incentive. By Gary Truitt – Jun 17, 2012 Until now, most of these groups have tried a variety of techniques to get Americans to stop eating what they think is bad and to get farmers to stop growing what they think is wrong. They use government regulation, legislation, and condemnation to try to change behavior. They use science and public opinion to try to scare or shame people into doing what they want. They have tried taxation and litigation, but all with dismal results. While it is true they have had some successes — you can’t find chocolate milk or potato chips in schools today — for the most part, their efforts have had very little impact on American eating habits. My local Kroger store, while phasing out pork raised with gestation crates, still has two aisles dedicated to soft drinks and a liquor section that is 3 times as large as the health food section. Consumers have already demonstrated that, if they feel a food product is more desirable, they will pay more for it. Organic produce has a higher price tag but, if a consumer wants it, they will pay that higher price. Cage-free or“vegetarian” eggs have a much higher price, and consumers can make that choice each time they buy eggs.  If enough consumers want grass-fed, hormone-free beef from steers with black fur who were raised by left handed farmers in the northern third of the county and are willing to pay a premium price for it, you can bet some left-handed cowboys will be putting some angus cattle on grass in the northern part of the county. That is the elitist factor behind many of these consumer activist groups. They expect someone else to make the change and pay the cost just because they say it is a good idea. Never to do they offer an economic incentive to the producer to make the change.  Farmers have shown over and over that, if there is a market, they will produce for it.  Most times the changes that are being demanded involve investments by producers or the adoption of less efficient production techniques. Yet, rarely does anyone offer to pay for the changes necessary. SHARElast_img read more
