Ordained to the priesthood in 1965, he served parishes in Maine and Vermont. He also was chaplain and taught at the National Cathedral School in Washington, D.C. He was rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Rutland, Vt., when he was elected bishop.After his retirement Smith also served as priest-in-charge at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Bridgton, Maine, where he oversaw the construction of a new church building. A celebration of his life will take place June 7 at St. Peter’s, according to an e-mail from Diocese of Maine Bishop Steve Lane.According to an article here, Smith emphasized cluster ministries in his 10 years in West Virginia, combining smaller churches with a ministry team to avoid each congregation having to pay the costs of employing full-time clergy. A priest in the diocese once estimated that the bishop traveled 40,000 miles a year to visit all the diocese’s congregations.In 1993 Smith told an Episcopal Church-sponsored evangelism conference that small parishes possess their own distinctive characteristics related to evangelism. “For them, evangelism is not a program, but a prescription about how the church goes about its business.“Evangelism is not guerrilla warfare for Jesus, nor self-serving efforts, nor recruitment of church members, although this will be the outcome,” Smith said. Rather it is a lifestyle, he continued, “speaking, acting and living out the connection with our Lord Jesus. It is a genuine sense of belonging, a deeply caring fellowship, driven by relationships where personal belonging and wellbeing is tied to the well-being of the whole community.”He authored Cluster Ministry: A faithful response to change in 1996, in which he wrote about models for ministry in small communities.Smith earned a Bachelor of Sacred Theology degree from the General Theological Seminary in 1964. He also earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Hartford Seminary in 1980. Smith was later awarded honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees from both General and Virginia Theological Seminary.He is survived by his wife, Victoria Dawley Smith, to whom he was married in 1964; his daughters, Allison Smith of Bedford, New Hampshire, and Kirsten Hewes and her husband, Harry, of Denmark, Maine, and Jon Roberts of Chicago; and four grandchildren, Meaghan and Benjamin Chandonnet of Bedford, and Ryan and Abigail Hewes of Denmark.The Smiths lived in Brunswick since 2003, with a summer camp in North Waterford since 1970.

Texas churches give Malawi Water Well funds to visiting bishop

Rev. James Tengatenga, bishop of Southern Malawi, arrived in Texas on June 13 and immediately began an extensive tour of churches and ministries. As the partner diocese of the Diocese of Texas, many churches work on projects and mission trips to Southern Malawi, especially in building water wells across the country.Upon arrival, Bishop Tengatenga first stopped at St. Andrew’s, Pearland where the Rev. Jim Liberatore presented him with a check for $8,669 to be used to build a water well in Malawi. Liberatore and Bishop Tengatenga attended seminary together at Seminary of the Southwest in Austin. Tengatenga and his wife, Jocelyn, lived in an apartment above Liberatore’s house. The two have remained connected over the years, and St. Andrew’s has worked on several mission projects in Southern Malawi.“Clean readily available water is critical to support community life in Malawi,” Liberatore said. The money was raised through a joint effort from St. Andrew’s and St. George’s, Texas City. St. Andrew’s also donated $2500 to form a reserve for micro-loans for women to start businesses in Malawi.St. Mary’s, Cypress, also welcomed Bishop Tengatenga on the morning of Thursday, June 14 at their vacation bible school. Every year, the children at VBS raise money to help build wells in Malawi. Last year, they raised $1900, and this year, they have already compiled more than $500 through Wednesday.“Most people just drink whatever they can drink and don’t know how to boil the water before they drink it. And that is a big, big, big problem,” Bishop Tengatenga told the children at VBS. “If the young people in Malawi drink water from puddles, their tummy complains. It’s like if you eat without washing your hands. All of those germs come in and give your tummy problems. A lot of children in Malawi are suffering from tummy-aches and other kinds of water-borne illnesses. And some of them don’t make it to the age of five. You’re help in drilling wells is helping them make it through.”St. Mary’s VBS director, Brandy Lee Marsh, described their efforts to raise money for wells as a “spiritual mission trip.”“We’ve thought about visiting Africa, but it costs several thousand dollars for each person,” she said. “Instead of spending that money on travel, we can use it to build more wells and hire people in Malawi to build them.”Marsh has spent eight years working on projects raising funds for Malawi, and cherished her moments to converse with Bishop Tengatenga. “Meeting him is like meeting Aerosmith to me,” she said.

Diocese of Utah/Chloe Nguyen[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] The Kenshin Taiko drummers from the Japanese Church of Christ in Salt Lake City got the July 1 Utah Showcase off to a thunderous start with a reverberating opening number representing a dragon wishing listeners a long life and good health.The evening came to an equally powerful end with a performance by the 220-voice American Festival Choir and Orchestra, whose program of hymns included a famous one by frontier-era Mormon composer William Clayton, “Come, Come, Ye Saints.”In between, there were choral performances by the Calvary Baptist Inspirational Choir; the Lux Singers, a religious ensemble in residence at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Provo; and El Coro Hispano, a choir from the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Madeleine that sings traditional religious music of Mexico and Central and South America.Ballet Folklorico Citlali performed Mexican folk dances. Chloe Nguyen/Diocese of UtahBallet Folklorico Citlali performed several traditional Mexican folk dances. The men, wearing white from hat to toe, did intricate tap-style stepwork, while the women, in vivid frilled finery, swirled in a kaleidoscope of color around them.Then the Pow Wow Family, whose members represent Ute, Navajo, Northern Shoshoni and Hopi tribes, demonstrated a series of traditional dances accompanied by a drum circle.In the elaborate fancy-dress regalia worn in contemporary powwow competitions, the women and men did dances in Southern Plains and Northern Lakota styles, an Ojibwe jingle-dress dance, an Omaha grass dance and a Blackfoot prairie chicken dance, among others. The set culminated in a swift showmanship piece derived from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, with a solo dancer improvising to the voices of the drums.There are 566 federally recognized Native American tribes at present, the Pow Wow Family’s leader told the audience. “We’re still here,” he said as the group left the stage to an ovation.A dancer from Pow Wow Family demonstrates a Northern Lakota-style dance. Chloe Nguyen/Diocese of Utah“In addition to religious diversity that visitors may sometimes find surprising, we here in Utah have a strong heritage of cultural and ethnic diversity that enlivens and strengthens our community,” Diocese of Utah Bishop Scott Hayashi said at the beginning of the program. “Tonight we are showcasing this rich heritage.”The Diocese of Utah organized the nearly two-hour program of music and dance for General Convention-goers. Many of them had rushed from a late-running legislative session to get there.The showcase was held in Temple Square at the Salt Lake Tabernacle, a historic landmark and home of the famed Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The towering golden structure of the Tabernacle’s 11,623-pipe organ was a dramatic visual backdrop for the performers, all of whom donated their time and talent for the evening.Elder L. Whitney Clayton, representing the Presidency of The Seventy, one of the senior governing bodies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, told the audience that the Tabernacle, built between 1864 and 1867 and known for its pin-drop acoustics, has an arched shape because it was designed by a bridge builder.“They didn’t have a lot of the things that we would use today to build a building like this, but they had lots of wood, they had rawhide and they had gumption, and those three things put together made a pretty good building,” Clayton said.Utah Bishop Scott Hayashi welcomes convention-goers to the Utah Showcase. Chloe Nguyen/Diocese of Utah“I think the most important thing about the entire structure is that when the Mormon pioneers arrived here, they came in wagons, they came, some of them, on horseback, but many of them walked. When they arrived here, they started from scratch and built this wonderful city in which we live and which is home to so many of us,” Clayton said.Clayton offered deep gratitude for Hayashi’s leadership. “I want to recognize him in a very personal way, for his friendship, for his cordiality, for his voice of inclusion and entertainment of other people’s views and ideas. His voice has been so critical to so many good things that have happened in this city and this state,” Clayton said.“We believe that we are God’s children and that we are truly one family. As brothers and sisters in that family each of us has a wonderful opportunity – indeed, we’d say a divine duty – to treat each other with kindness and respect as we worship the Lord and follow his teachings according to the dictates of our own conscience and our own tradition,” Clayton said. “We pray that God’s blessing will be upon you throughout your convention.”The American Festival Choir and Orchestra closed the program with “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.”One audience member was overheard saying as he made his way out the door, “If you don’t feel good after that, something is wrong with you.”— Tracy J.

El Consejo Ejecutivo vislumbra la labor del nuevo trienio

first_img Submit a Job Listing Course Director Jerusalem, Israel New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal escuchan predicar al obispo primado Michael Curry durante la sesión de apertura de la reunión del Consejo que se celebró del 15 al 18 de noviembre en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo en Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal comenzó el 15 de noviembre su ministerio de liderazgo para el trienio 2016-2018 siendo llamado a encabezar el Movimiento de Jesús y a ayudar a la Iglesia a extenderse y a cambiar para poder responder a los desafíos que enfrenta.El obispo primado Michael Curry le recordó al Consejo la sensación de logro y orientación [que había] al término de la Convención General en Salt Lake City el 3 de julio. “Había un sentir proveniente de la Convención de que acabábamos de hacer algo importante”, dijo él en sus palabras de apertura. “Creo que había una visión común, un sentido común de misión”.Él lo definió como un llamado de clarín y “todos lo oímos y lo oímos juntos”.La evangelización, la reconciliación racial y el Movimiento de Jesús son nombres que se le han dado a ese llamado, dijo Curry. Y es un llamado que “nos da sencillamente una enorme oportunidad como Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia, como su junta directiva si así lo quieren, para unirnos en brindar algún liderazgo y en compartir un liderazgo en seguir a Jesús.“Aporta claridad y la claridad es la que sienta todas las pautas en el mundo. Al menos uno sabe adonde va, incluso si las tormentas nos rodean; [y] uno tiene la impresión de que es aquí donde marchamos juntos”.El obispo primado Michael Curry predica el 15 de noviembre durante la eucaristía en la sesión de apertura de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo de Linthicum Heights, Maryland, del 15 al 18 de noviembre. Los miembros del Consejo Alexizendria Link, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental, y Steven Nishibayashi de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, pueden verse en el fondo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Curry le dijo al Consejo que él quiere expandir esa claridad de dos formas. En primer lugar, desde ahora hasta la reunión del Consejo del 26 al 28 de febrero, dijo que trabajará con su equipo administrativo para proponer un plan sobre la manera en que todas las partes del personal y del Consejo trabajarán juntas, “cómo colaboraremos, cómo nuestras diversas partes podrían colaborar para avanzar en la obra de la evangelización y de la reconciliación racial y en todo lo que hacemos”.El Obispo Primado dijo también que quiere nombrar a un tercer canónigo, además de los Rdos. Michael Hunn y Charles Robertson que fueron nombrados como canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal y canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal, respectivamente. El tercer canónigo sería responsable de llevar a cabo lo que él llamó el ministerio directo del Obispo Primado en la labor de evangelización y reconciliación racial, trabajando tanto con el personal denominacional como con la comunidad en general.Citando el liderazgo de Curry como Obispo Primado, el compromiso de la Convención General con la evangelización y la reconciliación racial, su reorganización del presupuesto y un cambio en la manera en que las diócesis financian la obra de la denominación, la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, dijo que “el escenario está listo para que participemos más clara, plena y entusiastamente en la misión de Dios para la Iglesia Episcopal”.Sin embargo, dijo ella en sus palabras de apertura, que la Iglesia necesita “alguna labor de discernimiento remedial” en la cual “reconsidere la misión de Dios para la Iglesia Episcopal en nuestro tiempo”. Ella citó una indagación que llevó a cabo Matthew Price, vicepresidente de investigación y datos del Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia, la cual arroja que de las congregaciones que habían tenido un clérigo en 2006, el 30% no tenía ninguno en 2013. “Luego, si el viejo modelo de un edificio dedicado con un sacerdote de jornada completa es lo que se nos exige para realizar la misión de Dios, estamos en un lío”, advirtió Jennings.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, fracciona el pan el 15 de noviembre durante la eucaristía de la sesión de apertura de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo, en Linthicum Heights, Maryland, del 15 al 18 de noviembre. El Rdo. Frank Logue, miembro del Consejo, asiste a Jennings en la celebración. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Jennings dijo también que la indagación mostraba que entre 2006 y 2013, las congregaciones habían experimentado una disminución de un 7 por ciento en sus ingresos operativos, un 8 por ciento en los ingresos por concepto de promesas y un 11 por ciento en tarjetas de promesa, pero no había habido disminución alguna en el monto de las compensaciones del clero. Gastar una proporción mayor que en el pasado de los recursos de la Iglesia en la paga del clero no es sostenible, advirtió ella.Por consiguiente, la Iglesia Episcopal se encuentra “cruzando un nuevo umbral que nunca habíamos previsto”, para ponerlo en las palabras del poeta John O’Donohue, dijo Jennings. Y agregó que hay dos maneras de pensar respecto a ese tipo de cambio.“Si pensamos en cruzar ese umbral como guardianes de la institución de la Iglesia, casi todo parecerá pérdida y decadencia”, dijo. “Es deprimente concebir el cambio en la Iglesia de esta manera, y no lo recomiendo. Y ello no parece realmente como el camino para discernir la misión de Dios”.En lugar de eso, ella instó al Consejo a enfrentarse a ese umbral “como personas que estamos seguras de nuestra identidad como hijos de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal”.“El mundo podría girar en torno nuestro, pero sabemos quienes somos y podemos extender nuestra identidad para darle cabida a los cambios que necesitamos hacer”, recalcó. “Dios sabe que somos el pueblo de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal, y Dios sabe que no se trata de edificios ni de clérigos de jornada completa ni de estatus social ni de legados. Y porque Dios sabe esas cosas, yo creo que Dios tiene una misión para nosotros”.La reunión del 15 al 18 de noviembre tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente y el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados.– La Rda.

June 6, 2016 at 4:32 pm Totalitarianism incrementally pushing forward under the guise of environmentalism. A precarious path indeed. It is not the chemicals or hydrocarbons that will destroy us in the long run. It is the Kool Aid being served up by videos like this one and happily consumed by the masses that will inflict the greater harm to our faith, our church and our nation.

Foto de ACNS.[Anglican Communion News Service] El equipo de trabajo que se creara después de la Reunión de los Primados en enero para “mantener el diálogo” se ha reunido por primera vez y [sus miembros] han afirmado su determinación de trabajar juntos, aunque reconocieron que el proceso tomaría tiempo y no podría apresurarse.Los primados le pidieron al arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby que nombrara al equipo para restaurar relaciones, reconstruir la confianza mutua, restañar las secuelas de heridas y explorar las profundas diferencias. Welby presentó el mandato del grupo ante la XVI reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano en Lusaka en abril, donde fue aceptado y ratificado. Esta semana siete miembros del equipo se han reunido en la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana en Londres. Un octavo se les unió a través de una videoconferencia.“Lo que estamos tratando de hacer es reflejar lo que deseamos para toda la Comunión”, dijo la Rvdma. Linda Nicholls, obispa coadjutora de Huron en la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá. “Estamos intentando poner en práctica en nuestro compromiso aquí los unos con los otros lo que anhelamos para toda la Comunión”.El arzobispo Ian Ernest, de la Provincia del Océano Índico, dijo que los intercambios dentro del grupo han sido sinceros y abiertos.“Lo que ha resultado muy claro es el nivel de transparencia que tenemos en el grupo. Hemos sido capaces de ser receptivos y de hablar abiertamente de nuestras diferencias”, dijo. “También reconocemos la riqueza de la Comunión. Y todos amamos nuestra Comunión —eso es lo que nos mantiene unidos”.El obispo Paul Sarker, moderador de la iglesia de Bangladesh, se hizo eco del mismo tema. “Nuestras culturas y antecedentes son muy distintos, y expresamos nuestra espiritualidad de manera diferente, pero estamos avanzando juntos”, afirmó.Michael Curry, obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, reconoció que encontrar soluciones llevaría tiempo.“Arreglos de emergencia no son soluciones a largo plazo”, dijo él. “Las soluciones a largo plazo exigen trabajo a largo plazo. Estamos hablando de relaciones. Uno no crea o renueva o restaura las relaciones de la noche a la mañana. De manera que nos vamos a tomar el tiempo que lleve —pero vamos a hacerlo.“Vengo a Londres esperando y deseando que encontremos medios de profundizar en nuestra relación con Jesucristo. Creo que cuanto más nos acerquemos a Dios en Cristo, tanto más cerca estaremos los unos de los otros”.En respuesta a la pregunta de si creía que había habido progreso, Curry dijo: “¡Bien, estamos aquí y estamos lográndolo!”.Él recordó un cántico espiritual de los esclavos en EE.UU. [que dice] “Seguiremos avanzando lentamente, como una oruga. La sabiduría [de este cántico] es que la oruga sigue avanzando, lenta pero constantemente. No esperen que las cosas ocurran de improviso… Estamos comprometidos con la Iglesia Anglicana. Creemos en la importancia de la Comunión por el bien del evangelio y del mundo”.Reflexionando sobre la diversidad, la canóniga Rosemary Mbogo, secretaria provincial de la Iglesia Anglicana de Kenia, dijo que no había ningún grupo dentro de la Comunión Anglicana cuyos puntos de vista no fueran a ser oídos.“Eso es realmente necesario si estamos hablando de recuperarse y de andar y de trabajar juntos en una Comunión unificada”, dijo ella. Añadiendo que se había sentido complacida por el progreso alcanzado. “Ha ido bien. Hemos cubierto muchísimo terreno en el entendimiento mutuo y de las personas que representamos. Estamos llegando a conocernos unos a otros por pasar tiempo juntos. Definitivamente, hay esperanzas —estoy convencida de eso”.Ernest se mostró de acuerdo: “Ha sobrepasado mis expectativas”, dijo.El obispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon, secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que le agradecía a los participantes los sacrificios que habían hecho para asistir a la reunión y encomió el progreso alcanzado en las conversaciones.“Estoy realmente alentado por la profundidad de la confianza que está empezando a verse y también por la esperanza que han expresado los participantes”.El equipo afirmó la importancia de la oración en la labor que realiza.“Estamos comprometidos a orar los unos por los otros”, dijo el arzobispo Philip Freier, de la Iglesia Anglicana de Australia. “Puede existir la idea de que esto es sólo un ‘festival de discursos’; pero esta [oración] es una acción profunda coherente con el tema”.Mbogo convino en que la oración era el fundamento de la labor del grupo y que era vital para su dirección conocer la voluntad de Dios.Curry añadió, “Nuestro tiempo aquí ha estado inmerso en la oración. Esa siempre va a ser una fórmula para un mejor resultado”.El arzobispo de Cantórbery le dio formalmente la bienvenida al equipo y oró por ellos antes de que comenzaran las conversaciones el martes. Él también asistió a la primera sesión, durante la cual insistió en que no había ninguna agenda predeterminada y que el equipo había de nombrar su propio presidente.Idowu-Fearon recibió al grupo y actúo como secretario. El equipo convino en que el puesto de presidente rotaría entre los miembros. El noveno miembro del grupo, el arzobispo Ng Moon Hing, de la Provincia de Asia Sudoriental, no pudo asistir. El moderador de la Iglesia del Sur de la India, el obispo Govada Dyvasirvadam, no tomará parte debido a las alegaciones a que se enfrenta en la India.Está previsto que el equipo se reúna anualmente con otros encuentros adicionales por vía electrónica. La fecha de la próxima reunión no se ha confirmado todavía.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Travel Insurance. Who needs it?

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here by Lee BoughanYou’ve spent months planning the perfect family vacation before the school season starts. You tell yourself- “We’re going no matter what!” That “what” suddenly becomes little Johnny running a high fever of 105 and with just days before your departure, you also get sick.Sound familiar? It’s funny because I am guilty of just that type of mentality- the days of “oh nothing’s going to happen before we go” are totally over.Enter, reality.People get sick. Yes, even me. I even got sick while on vacation and needed medical care!Hurricanes hit. Flooding occurs. Resorts get damaged.Your lovely boss needs you to stay to help with a company merger. Or worse, you get terminated.The story heard from a couple I met on a cruise was when his wife had an aneurysm, they had to helicopter her off the ship, imagine what that cost! And then she spent 3 weeks in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, not only was the hospitalization covered, but the insurance company paid all of his hotel costs to stay with her in Ft. Lauderdale until her could go home. You just never know.All these and more are reasons to buy Travel Insurance. Gone are those days of the negative thoughts about travel insurance. For the small cost of my trip investment, the three main reasons why I buy are: peace of mind, protection against the unexpected and concern over losing my financial investment in a trip. I’m telling you for fractions of what you invest in a trip from planning to actual cost, just having peace of mind is all I need.Check out some of the things that travel insurance will cover:Your baggage is lost or damaged.You’re involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. You need medical evacuation.You need to cancel your trip due to illness.Your cruise line, airline or tour operator goes bankrupt. You need your non-refundable expenses covered and to get to your destination.You have a medical emergency in a foreign country.A terrorist incident occurs in the city where you’re planning to visit and you want to cancel your trip.A hurricane forces you to evacuate your resort, hotel or cruise.You are called for jury duty.As a seller of travel in Florida, I have to offer everyone travel insurance.  But it’s up to the traveler. I think travelers should have it. Too many bad things happen to good people at the worst-possible time.Lee Boughan is with Cruise Planners of Apopka.last_img read more
