Andrea Bardelmeier, la representante de la Iglesia Episcopal, es la tercera de izquierda a derecha. En primera fila al centro está Jason Sierra, funcionario encargado de liderazgo y vocaciones de jóvenes adultos en la Iglesia Episcopal.[Episcopal News Service] Hace dos años, Andrea Bardelmeier asistió a la reunión de la Comisión de Naciones Unidas sobre la Condición de la Mujer (UNCSW) con un grupo de otros jóvenes adultos episcopales. “Esa fue de las experiencias que te cambian la vida”, dice ella.En la actualidad, como líder de un ministerio ecuménico y multirreligioso en la Universidad de Xavier, en Cincinnati, ella está pasando esta semana a otra experiencia de “inmersión” mediante el Instituto Episcopal de Liderazgo, que esta vez se concentra en el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración.El instituto es una iniciativa de la Oficina del Ministerio Universitario de Jóvenes Adultos de la Iglesia que comenzó oficialmente el año pasado a partir de los programas de jóvenes adultos de la UNCSW que la Iglesia puso en marcha en 2009.  “Consiste básicamente en conectar a jóvenes adultos con el liderazgo de nuestras redes para ver realmente cómo podemos infundirles a éstas un nuevo liderazgo y ayudar a los jóvenes adultos a tener acceso a una mayor escala del quehacer que cada uno realiza”, dijo Jason Stewart Sierra, encargado de liderazgo y vocaciones de jóvenes adultos.El instituto se concentra en cuatro componentes, comenzando con experiencias de inmersión a corto plazo donde pequeños grupos de jóvenes adultos —de 18 a 30 años de edad— asisten a una reunión de la iglesia donde se debate un tema de promoción o defensa social. La primera de tales experiencias tuvo lugar en 2009, cuando 10 mujeres jóvenes pasaron una semana en la UNCSW. “Esa fue una oportunidad para ellas de ver a gran escala cómo las mujeres estaban organizándose en torno a [los temas de] justicia de género y derechos femeninos y ver cómo la Iglesia Episcopal tomaba parte en eso”, dijo Sierra.Entre los programas posteriores se incluyeron uno con Iglesia para la Paz en el Medio Oriente, que incluía  adiestramiento en promoción social con la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal, y una experiencia de inmersión en [un programa de] eco-justicia, que tuvo lugar en Seattle para 20 jóvenes adultos. Hasta la fecha, 73 jóvenes adultos de al menos 41 diócesis han participado en programas del instituto, incluidas las visitas a la UNCSW.“La segunda parte se concentra en la formación de la identidad episcopal, de manera que empezamos y concluimos cada día con un oficio”, dijo Sierra. Allí exploran la política episcopal, “de manera que las personas tengan una comprensión más plena de cómo se inserta esta obra de promoción social en la totalidad de nuestra estructura”.En tercer lugar, los participantes tienen la oportunidad de ser instruidos por expertos en la materia, “no simplemente observar a distancia”, agregó Sierra. “Intentamos llevarlos realmente hasta [el punto] donde la conversación es vital, , de manera que no estamos para nada sobreprotegiéndolos en el trabajo, sino haciendo que tengan acceso directamente a los líderes de nuestra Iglesia donde el quehacer es realmente dinámico… Con la Paz en el Medio Oriente, tuvieron la oportunidad de ir directamente al Capitolio y acercarse a todos estos líderes que han estado  ocupándose de este problema durante mucho tiempo”.Finalmente, agregó él. “tratamos de hacerles partícipes en la preparación del desarrollo del liderazgo”. Esto significa fomentar las destrezas en el terreno de la presentación y las comunicaciones, así como en la promoción o defensa social, “de manera que puedan comenzar a pensar de sí mismos como líderes de la fe, funcionen dentro de la Iglesia o no”.Los participantes deben escribir acerca de sus experiencias de inmersión para sus publicaciones diocesanas y hacer una presentación, “de manera que comiencen a ser vistos como líderes de la promoción social en sus comunidades de base”, apuntó Sierra. El instituto apoya a los participantes en la formación de comunidades que se mantendrán en contacto unas con otra, y que les vincularán a las redes de la Iglesia. “Nuestro papel es ayudarlas a establecer la conexión y prepararlas para hacer el trabajo”.La esperanza, agregó él, es que los jóvenes adultos comenzarán a trabajar en las redes existentes, en lugar de permanecer segregados.Esta semana, cuatro jóvenes adultos participantes del ministerio universitario se unieron a Sierra en la conferencia anual del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración (EMM) que tuvo lugar en Atlanta. Ellos dedicarán tiempo concentrados en cómo relacionar el ministerio universitario con el trabajo del EMM, explicó él, haciendo notar que ésta es la primera experiencia de inmersión que atrajo pocos solicitantes. “Tuvo algo de sorpresa”.“Eso es interesante”, dijo Bardelmeier, “porque creo que es realmente un problema de nuestro tiempo, y me pregunto dónde está la desconexión”.En Dayton, Ohio, hay una reunión de la Iglesia Episcopal sobre refugiados africanos, dijo ella.“Me encantaría hacer algo que trajera algunos de nuestros estudiantes africanos a Xavier para hacer alguna labor con refugiados”, dijo Bardelmeir, de 29 años, que es subdirectora del Centro pro Fe y Justicia Dorothy Day de la universidad.Dan Trudeau, director del programa de EMM para comunicaciones y desarrollo de medios de difusión, trabajó primero con refugiados a través de una agrupación de servicio de aprendizaje, en la Universidad de Michigan y participó en trabajo voluntario en un programa que ayuda a personas a la obtención de asilo.“Sé el poderoso impacto que una experiencia como esa puede tener a esa edad”, dijo. “Para mí fue realmente fascinante porque logré conocer a muchas personas de muchos países diferentes… Sirvió para abrirme los ojos”.En la conferencia de esta semana, añadió él, “nuestro plan es hacer que los jóvenes adultos que participen se relacionen directamente con el personal que tenemos en nuestra red afiliada y que realizan labores de extensión comunitaria para las iglesias”. Los participantes recibirán adiestramiento en técnicas de servicio comunitario a fin de crear conciencia y apoyo para el programa de reasentamiento de refugiados.“En verdad queremos crear la próxima generación de promotores y defensores de los refugiados en la Iglesia”, dijo Trudeau. “Espero que esta interacción de primera mano con nuestro personal local que labora en sus diócesis y comunidades realmente les de a estos jóvenes adultos un cuadro de todo lo que ocurre al recibir refugiados en Estados Unidos y una idea de cómo ellos pueden realmente contribuir a tener un impacto positivo en ese empeño”.Ashley Pagan, de 23 años, se graduó en diciembre de la Universidad de Arizona y se entero de la experiencia de inmersión del EMM a través del capellán universitario. El mudarse a Tucson y trabajar con inmigrantes había despertado su interés en los problemas de inmigración y refugiados, dijo. Ella trabaja regularmente de voluntaria en una cocina de beneficencia y un orfanato en Naco, México.“Estoy realmente entusiasmada, pero al mismo tiempo un poco nerviosa y asustada”, dijo antes de la conferencia. “Estoy segura de que será una semana de la que nunca me voy a olvidar”.El aspecto de la “inmersión” le atrajo, contó. “Definitivamente, prefiero eso a simplemente sentarme y oír hablar”.La primera experiencia de inmersión de Bardelmeier fue en la UNCSW 2010. “Conocí a mujeres de todas partes del mundo, que se enfrentan a muchas cosas”. Ella recordaba a una mujer de Turquía a quien habían expulsado de la universidad por usar un hijab. “Ella no pudo educarse por razón de su fe. Fue ese tipo de conversaciones las que caracterizaron toda la semana. Resultó muy impactante”.“Creo que el impacto perdurable ha sido las conexiones que hice con otras mujeres de la Iglesia Episcopal a través del país”, agregó. “En definitiva, es por eso que solicité participar en otra”.“Lo que me llevó a querer tomar parte en esta conferencia en particular es que mi cuñado es refugiado de Camboya”, agregó. “La Iglesia Cristiana Reformada lo trajo y lo reasentó en mi pueblo. Siento que eso, en alguna medida, ahora forma parte de mi historia”.“Creo que la Iglesia Episcopal es generosa en abrir el camino con el ministerio de la migración”, afirmó. “Yo quiero aprender más”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Photo/Karen Ward[Episcopal News Service] The ages-old tradition of beer and religion has come to Portland.About 75 people gathered in the parish hall at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church for “straight-up Christian hymns, beer and bratwurst and — this being Portland — gluten-free beer and veggie sausages,” said the Rev. Karen Ward, who organized the April 20 Pop Up Church‘s “Beer n’Hymns.”Intending to offer “something for every lifestyle” at the event, Ward provided all kinds of beers, lagers, and ales, even homemade brew — up to and including ginger ale and root beer for the children as well as nonalcoholic beer and water. Tambourines and other musical instruments were strategically placed throughout the parish hall so a dozen or so children could accompany an alternative Christian rock band, she said.“The music was great,” said Katy Breazeal, 53, who lives in Portland and attended the event. “You could sing along and not feel stupid if you were a little bit off” on such standards as “Great is thy Faithfulness,” “Come Thou Font of Every Blessing,” “Be Thou My Vision” and even some original music, she said.Matt Addis, 29, donated his homemade gluten-free imperial pale ale for consumption and “had a great time” at the event.“One of the best things about it was that there were a lot of different denominations represented, all age groups — it was a diverse crowd. Just to be able to eat and drink together and meet new people and find out that there are people doing really cool things in your city and to be able to sing with them was exciting,” said Addis during an April 23 telephone interview from Portland.Pairing beer with a hymnsing “brings a level of comfort to the people involved who wouldn’t normally be there if it was just a church service. To be able to do those two things together brought people who wouldn’t necessarily talk to each other, wouldn’t necessarily sing with each other. It had a very sweet spirit,” he said.“A few people shared with me that it felt like doing something new, that it was open enough and compassionate enough that people really felt welcome and didn’t feel forced by it in the way they might with some liturgies,” added Addis, a senior at the George Fox Seminary in Portland. He aims to help create the Habitat Brewing Company after he graduates this December. He is also a co-founder of Community Missions, which hosts bimonthly “pint theology” and other interfaith and interdenominational gatherings throughout Portland.There was an informal liturgy and prayers, Ward said. “It’s an alternative liturgy, a holy meal and a holy communion but not in the literal sense of the church’s official rituals,” she said. The event also aimed to raise money and awareness for two local faith-based agencies; the HIV Day Center, which assists persons living with HIV/AIDS, and Rahab’s Sisters, which offers support to women marginalized by the sex industry, homelessness and substance abuse.Ward was inspired by a beer n’hymnsing at the Greenbelt Festival, a yearly arts, faith and justice gathering in the United Kingdom. This year’s gathering is planned for Aug. 24 – 27 in Cheltenham. Its American counterpart, the Wild Goose Festival, is set to hold its second justice, spirituality, music and art gathering June 21 – 24in Shakori Hills, North Carolina and a similar festival is being planned for the Pacific Northwest, Ward said.But the tradition of beer and spirituality and religion dates to the Middle Ages, she added.“Benedictine monks have been brewing beer in Europe since the 12th century. Monastics brewed beer especially during Lent; if the monks were on a fast, it had all the nutrients of bread,” Ward said during a recent telephone interview from Portland.She hopes to adapt the hospitality associated with monasteries to fit Portland’s culture, to tap into the lives of people who may not go to church but “might like singing, might like beer drinking, to introduce seekers to church in a way they’ve never been.“In our culture, people think of coffeehouses and pubs as those spaces churches used to fill. That’s where people go to find community,” she said. “They don’t go to church, so what is that saying? And churches have gotten away from being part of the regular culture. I think Jesus wouldn’t be hiding behind the walls of a church and expecting people to come in, instead of being out where the people are.”Lindsay Ross Hunt is program director of the HIV Day Center in Portland, a 23-year-old faith-based drop-in center that offers meals, laundry, showers, social workers and other assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS. Many are struggling with mental illness, homelessness, racial and ethnic minority status and other complicating issues, she said during an April 23 telephone interview from her office.She was surprised — pleasantly — at the new faces she saw at Beer n’Hymns.“Oftentimes, you see some of the same people at community events, but this was a unique gathering of individuals that might not bump into each other otherwise,” said Hunt, 33.“People had a great time,” Hunt added. “We shared a meal together before diving into the hymnsing, which was also really different and unique. It was a hopeful space, a very traditional practice of singing hymns together in a different kind of way, especially with children participating in the production of music itself. There were instruments all over the room, and a piano, which people could grab and participate.”The Rev. Dan Morrow, rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oregon City, agreed.“It was a time of prayer, a very safe place for anyone who hasn’t been to a church before. People were dancing, kids were running around with tambourines and shakers and everyone could play with the band.”But, he added, “it was a worship service and it didn’t shy away from the fact that we were there to sing hymns and have prayers, but at the same time it was a safe space.”Beer n’Hymns is evangelism, he said, particularly among “disaffected evangelicals, people who have grown up with faith as a formative part of their lives but feel the community they grew up in is too closed off and fundamentalist.“Beer n’Hymns meets in the middle of evangelical worship and traditional Episcopal worship. There was a discernible liturgy but minus the pomp and circumstance, which can be daunting for people who aren’t familiar with it,” Morrow said.Daniel Palmer, 43, an e-commerce businessman, describes himself as “a recovering evangelical” who was seeking alternative worship when he heard about the Church of the Apostles, an emergent church Ward started in Seattle in 2002.Then he learned about Ward’s Pop Up Church — emergent worship that meets at various locations around Portland.“I like what Karen’s doing,” he said of Ward. “I’m excited about how she’s so inclusive of everyone and really reaching out to lots of different people. I love singing, so Beer n’Hymns sounded perfect. We were standing the whole time during the singing portion and my ten-year-old daughter, Sienna, was playing the tambourine.”For Breazeal, 53, Beer n’Hymns was filled with a lively bunch of people “that maybe don’t fit into the mainstream of Christian churches” and perfect for someone like her, without a particular faith tradition. “I don’t know what I am,” she said laughingly about her faith journey. “I have always looked for ways to connect with people over spiritual issues but hadn’t found a church or anything.”She frequently attends Pop Up Church on Sundays, a more contemplative experience which she treasures. Yet, she also enjoyed the vibrant energy of Beer n’Hymns, she said. “It wasn’t any holier-than-thou kind of experience – it was quite sweet and Karen is very open and accepting and actually sort of shy but puts herself out there just because it’s her calling. She’s shaking things up and making things happen.”— The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for the Episcopal News Service. She is based in Los Angeles.

En el 2013, ENS también publicó una serie sobre decanos de la catedral, disponible aquí.El Muy Rdo. Ashton Brooks es el decano de la Catedral de la Epifanía en Santo Domingo, en la diócesis de la República Dominicana y decano del Centro de Educación Teológica, en el seminario de la IX Provincia. Foto: Lynette Wilson / Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Santo Domingo, República Dominicana] Servir a la iglesia se encuentra en la sangre del Muy Rdo. Ashton Brooks.Brooks, el decano de la Catedral de la Epifanía, es uno de los más de 10 en su familia, siete todavía sirviendo en el ministerio activo, que ha servido a la iglesia. Ha sido ordenado y ha participado en el ministerio activo durante 45 años.La Diócesis de la República Dominicana designó a la Epifanía una catedral después que Brooks regresó a la República Dominicana hace cuatro años. A lo largo de su ministerio, Brooks ha servido a la iglesia de los Estados Unidos, el Caribe y desde puntos de toda América Latina, entre ellos la República Dominicana, pero antes de regresar a “casa”, esta última vez, estuvo 10 años como decano de la Iglesia Catedral de Todos Santos en Santo Thomas, Islas Vírgenes.“Volví porque soy un soñador”, dijo Brooks, quien nació en San Pedro de Macorís, una comunidad alrededor de una hora en el este a lo largo de la costa del Caribe.Brooks también sirve como decano del Centro de Estudios Teológicos, la cual comparte la propiedad en la sección de Gazcue de Santo Domingo con la Catedral de la Epifanía. El centro sirve ahora como el seminario oficial de la IX Provincia, incluyendo siete diócesis episcopales repartidas por todo el Caribe, América Central y el norte de América del Sur. En la actualidad hay cinco seminaristas residentes, cuatro dominicanos y una ecuatoriana.Su sueño, explicó, es ampliar el Centro de Estudios Teológicos y reubicarlo en otro lugar.El énfasis en la educación ha estado en el corazón del ministerio de Brooks. Es también una de las prioridades de la Diócesis de la República Dominicana, donde casi la mitad de 55 misiones de la diócesis tienen escuelas afiliadas, lo que refleja el compromiso de la Iglesia con la educación.“Las iglesias y las escuelas se han movido mano a mano en esta diócesis”, dijo Brooks. “La manera de ayudar a la gente salir de una situación desesperada es darles la oportunidad para la educación”.Cuando se le preguntó acerca de lo que le motiva, Brooks pensó en las clases que tomo en la Escuela de Divinidad de Harvard  con el estudioso del Antiguo Testamento Paul Hanson, quien además de dar clases en Harvard enseñó en la escuela dominical. Hanson diría que sus logros académicos no significaba nada si no era “capaz de relacionarse con los niños en la escuela dominical”, dijo Brooks.La Catedral de la Epifanía se encuentra en la sección de Gazcue de Santo Domingo. La presencia episcopal en Santo Domingo se remonta a 1918 Foto: Julius AriailReubicar al seminario de la catedral también tendría el beneficio añadido de liberar el espacio para agregar una escuela primaria para ministerios de alcance de la catedral, dijo Brooks. Además de los servicios de adoración, la catedral cuenta con un programa semanal de alimentación, una despensa de alimentos mensual, la biblioteca Helen F. Kellogg en el idioma Inglés y una guardería para “Las ovejitas “, “la pequeña oveja”, entre otros programas para servir a la comunidad.“La educación es el camino para ayudar a la gente en sus vidas”, dijo. “Mi vocación siempre ha sido la educación”.Brooks se desempeñó anteriormente en el Centro de Estudios Teológicos en la década de 1970 y 1980, y más tarde también dirigió el Centro de Reflexión Teológica, en San José, Costa Rica.Brooks se graduó de la Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, la universidad más antigua de América, y también obtuvo grados del Seminario Episcopal del Caribe, antes localizada en Puerto Rico, y el Seminario General de Teología en Nueva York. También estudió en la Escuela Episcopal de Divinidad en Cambridge, Massachusetts. El Seminario de Divinidad en el pacífico en Berkely, California, le otorgó un doctorado honoris en 1993.Curiosamente, fue durante el servicio militar obligatorio de Brooks, durante el régimen militar de Rafael Trujillo, cuando se dio cuenta que él fue llamado a servir a la iglesia. Cada mañana Brooks dirigía un estudio de la Biblia como un incentivo para que los soldados lleguen a tiempo al simulacro de las 4 a.m., dijo.“‘El Señor te está llevando a este servicio” se le dijo en ese momento, dijo, y fue entonces que comenzó a explorar el ministerio.Los domingos por la mañana, la Epifanía ofrece  dos servicios, uno a las 8:45 am en inglés, donde hay poca asistencia, y el otro a las 10:45 horas en español que atrae a un público mucho más amplio.La Catedral de la Epifanía alberga una despensa mensual de alimentos llamada “Canasta de Lázaro”, además de albergar un programa de alimentación de desayuno semanal. Foto: Julius AriailDurante una entrevista con Episcopal News Service en su despacho de la catedral, Brooks explicó que la presencia Episcopal en Santo Domingo se remonta a 1918, dos años después de que Estados Unidos ocupó la isla, una ocupación que duró hasta 1924.Al principio, la presencia episcopal comenzó como una misión sirviendo a los militares de habla Inglesa militares de EE.UU. y sus familias y la comunidad de expatriados.“Ministrando en Inglés para gente que habla Inglés en América Latina”, dijo Brooks, quien agregó que los anglicanos de habla Inglesa no siempre recuerdan que hay anglicanos de habla hispana, también. “El estereotipo es que son todos ex católicos romanos”. (La bisabuela de Brooks por el lado de su padre era anglicana)Tanto como un erudito y un maestro, Brooks ha trabajado para descubrir, interpretar y articular la Biblia de una manera que refleja la singularidad de las personas y la cultura de América Latina.Él ve su ministerio con fuertes raíces en “tratar de ayudar a las personas que buscan la paz y entenderse entre ellos”.– Lynette Wilson es una editora/reportera para Episcopal News Service.  Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Smithfield, NC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Submit a Press Release Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Albany, NY center_img Rector Shreveport, LA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Press Release Service Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Belleville, IL La educación siempre fue una parte de la vocación de Ashton Brooks El primer decano de la Catedral de Epifanía de Santo Domingo Submit a Job Listing Por Lynette WilsonPosted Mar 26, 2014 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Surely the impact of its presence and deliberations there will have more than a long or short term lasting affect upon the participants, and indeed all those who read about, and vicariously through media experience those happenings. These gatherings help to keep” hope alive” for our Episcopal church. and its youth in making this a better world for all to experience and live in by love, and by what we do in supporting each other through whatever means possible; particularly through the preaching, and practicing of the gospel of God in Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit which lives within which helps. and enables us, and peoples of all “sorts and conditions” to be and becomes all that we are made for and are called to in this world and that to come.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Villanova, Pennsylvania] After four days of worship, workshops, prayer, long walks across the Villanova University campus, late-night conversations and contemplation of Scripture and the Five Marks of Mission, EYE14 all came down to the call to go out into the world and love it.“Whenever God is about to change the world, God tells somebody to ‘Go’” and that is what is happening now, Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry said during this sermon at the Episcopal Youth Event 14 closing Eucharist July 12.God, Curry said, is the “very essence” and source of love, and “our mission is to love this world and ourselves into the very dream of God and when you do that, you’ll have the strength you need to bear any hardship and carry any cross because you’ll find power.”This love is not the sentimental type, Curry said during his sermon.“When the way is getting tough, when it’s getting hard and difficult, that’s when Jesus starts to talk about love,” he said, noting that it was in Holy Week “when Jesus knows he’s likely to sacrifice his life” that Jesus talked constantly about love.“‘Love’ as Judas is about to betray him. ‘Love’ as Simon Peter would soon deny him. ‘Love’ as he would be arrested in the garden. ‘Love’ as he would be tried on unjust charges. ‘Love’ as he would be mocked and scourged and tortured. ‘Love’ as they would nail him to a tree. ‘Love’ as he would breathe his last. ‘Love’ as he would die and ‘Love’ as God raised him from the dead. ‘Love!’”Curry’s sermon had congregation members on their feet as often as they were in their seats as he roamed the dais and, at one point, crouched on the floor to show what his family’s ugly and bumbling cat looked like when she “was able to do what the Lord  put a cat on this earth to do” and hunt mice with a vengeance. In nearly 30 minutes he invoked St. Augustine, Jimi Hendrix and Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey, as well as Muffin the Ugly Cat.Video of the entire closing Eucharist is here.Earlier in the day EYE14 heard a story of that sort of love enacted outside the walls of church from the Rev. Becca Stevens, founder of Magdalene and Thistle Farms, residential and social enterprises run by women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction and life on the streets.Her stories, which ranged from Tennessee to Rwanda to a women’s prison in Texas, brought some to tears and held others spellbound. She told her listeners that all of the women “never doubted the idea that love heals.”Stevens, the Episcopal chaplain to Vanderbilt University, warned EYE14 that the work of Thistle Farms and Magdalene and all other efforts like them for which the Episcopal Church is known have to be movements based in community and not individual efforts. Showing them a painting of the Last Supper, she said, “If we’re not a movement … the church becomes a still life.”“And it’s beautiful to look at but we’re not going to sit there forever and we are going to move on,” she said, adding that when she looks at that painting she imagines the apostles pushing back from the table and going back out into the world. “If they had stayed there – as beautiful as it was, as meaningful as it was, as important as it was to the life of the world – if they had not turned around and gone back out, we would never know that story.”Episcopal Youth Event 2014 participants, some wearing very popular glow sticks given away by the United Thanks Offering, watch a video July 12 about the mission and ministry of the Community of Magdalene and Thistle Farms, a residential and social enterprise run by women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction, and life on the streets; and led by the Rev. Becca Stevens. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceStevens told EYE14 that “we are called to love the world,” she said.“There is nothing in Scripture that says we have to change it. There is nothing in Scripture that says the world has to love us,” she said. “The calling is that you and I go back out and love [the world] over and over and over again until we get it right. We love it in such a way that we’re willing to change. We love it in such a way that we’re willing not to judge it. We’re loving it in a way where we’re not willing to leave anyone behind.”Video of Stevens’ presentation is here.The Episcopal Youth Event 2014 included 786 youth in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 academic year and 263 adult leaders who spent July 9-12 here on the campus of Villanova University near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. EYE14’s theme was “Marked for Mission” and the gathering was built around helping participants discern how the Holy Spirit has marked them for mission and how they might engage in the work of the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, as a way to enact the call to love that they were hearing.During the opening plenary session July 10 Bronwyn Clark Skov, Episcopal Church Youth Ministries Officer, gave what was for many participants an introduction to the Five Marks of Mission. She suggested they spend their time together at EYE14 exploring the connection between Scripture, responding to God’s call and “discerning our personal paths to ministry within the greater context of the community.” Her presentation begins at the 32:00 mark here.The 14 youth members of the EYE14 planning team (listed here) gave her a shorthand way to remember the intent of each marks, Clark Skov said. The method, easily counted off on the fingers of one had, is Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform, Treasure. A video the youth made connecting a favorite Scripture passage to each mark is here.On July 11, EYE14 participants went on a “Philadelphia Pilgrimage.” They boarded 20 buses and fanned out to 16 sites all over the Philadelphia area to learn about the current ministry of the Episcopal Church in city and get a glimpse of the history of the Episcopal Church.The night before, the Rev. Randy Callender, a Philadelphia native, who is the rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Annapolis, Maryland, told them that “the city of Philadelphia will help you to understand the Five Marks of Mission” and may transform their understanding of mission.“One day, the young people here at EYE will make a difference in someone’s life,” he predicted, adding that they will end “racism and sexism and classism and all other -isms and people will no longer use those -isms as tools to keep others out of the church.”Video of Callender’s presentation is here.Before the pilgrims left early on July 11, Diocese of Pennsylvania Bishop Clifton Daniel III told them that it was a “joy” to host EYE14. He recalled attending an event for Episcopal Church youth in 1964, an event which “formed me and shaped me in ways that I could not imagine” at the time. The same is true for the youth who have come to Philadelphia, said Daniel, who added he could see the future ordained and lay leadership of the Episcopal Church sitting before him.“I am proud to be here with you, and I thank God for you,” Daniel said.Every one of the 20 pilgrimage buses visited Independence National Historic Park and Christ Church, Philadelphia, where those who became known as Episcopalians gathered for the first time in General Convention at Christ Church in Philadelphia in 1785.The other pilgrimage sites were:St. James SchoolSt. Mark’s Church, Locust StreetThe Free Church of St. John, KensingtonThe Church of St. Martin-in-the-Field, Chestnut HillChurch of St. Thomas, WhitemarshEpiscopal Community ServicesSt. Peter’s Church, Third and PineSt. Paul’s Church, ChesterSt. Mary’s Church, ChesterSt. Luke’s Church, GermantownThe Church of the AdvocateChurch of St. Luke and the EpiphanyThe African Episcopal Church of St. ThomasThe Cathedral Church of Our Savior, Philadelphia CathedralAlong the way, the EYE14 pilgrims were welcomed and, at times, challenged. For some who went the Episcopal Community Services’ St. Barnabas Mission the challenge came to their attitudes about the nature of homelessness. Others had their liturgical piety challenged by the experience of Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Mark’s Church.The Diocese of Massachusetts delegation had the eye-opening experience of seeing the diocese’s retired Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris portrayed in a stained glass window at St. Thomas. “Wow,” said one pilgrim. “I know someone in a stained glass window. I never thought that would happen.”Three of nearly 800 youth sit on a wall on the terrace of the Philadelphia Museum of Art during a hug picnic July 11 during the Episcopal Youth Event 2014. EYE14’s theme was “Marked for Mission” and their T-shirts and accompanying tote bags were donated by the Diocese of Pennsylvania, co-sponsor of the July 9-12 gathering. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceLate in the afternoon the buses dropped the pilgrims off at the bottom of the Rocky Steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art where, after they made the traditional run up the stairs, they encountered a dinner on the terrace featuring classic Philly foods, including cheesesteaks, hoagies, water ice and local sodas. There was a rousing dance party and a chance to play cornhole, a bean bag toss game that is very popular in Pennsylvania.The day was not over yet. EYE14 returned to Villanova for Evening Prayer with the high-energy music of the St. Thomas Gospel Choir of Philadelphia and the HighLite Vibes of the Diocese of Long Island. Video of the complete service is here.During her sermon Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori challenged the pilgrims to contemplate and then tell the stories of their experience that day.“You’ve been out and about in this city today, discovering its diversity, both its need and its blessings. Each one of you has a story to tell about the encounters of this day,” she said. “I hope you have been moved and marked and changed by someone or something you encountered today.”Jefferts Schori said she hoped EYE14 participants would tell the stories of that pilgrimage because their friends and the entire world need to pay attention to the brokenness of the world and its causes, and they need to hear about the dreams Christians have for the wholeness that is the kingdom of God.When encountering a person who is hurting or hungry, she said, there is a choice. “Will we engage or will we ignore that person? If we connect, we’ve got to share something of that good news – that all of us are loved beyond imagining, and that we’re willing to show that love in concrete ways.”And, Christians are called to do more, said Jefferts Schori. “It may start by feeding somebody who’s hungry, but it doesn’t end there. We can feed someone a meal, but if nothing changes, that person is going to be hungry again in a few hours,” she said. “That’s where the longer-term and bigger-picture work of transformation starts – asking why this person is hungry, or why so many people are standing on street corners asking for help.”Those sorts of questions can be annoying and irritating, she said, but they come from the Holy Spirit “acting more like a mosquito than a dove” that will “pester us and make us restless until there is justice for all.”“We all need to be bitten, marked with an itch for what the world could be like,” Jefferts Schori said, adding in an echo of the celebration at the museum earlier that evening: “We’re not going to live in peace until everybody can sit down and share God’s great picnic together in peace.”The text of the presiding bishop’s sermon is here.Episcopal Youth Event 2014 participants were encouraged to pick their favorite Scripture verse. Many posted their choice on the nine-panel prayer wall that greeted EYE14 inside the Pavilion at Villanova University for worship and plenary sessions. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFollowing EYE14, more than 300 stayed in Philadelphia to engage 3 Days of Urban Mission. The majority of 3 Days of Urban Mission volunteers will stay at the University of Pennsylvania in inner-city Philadelphia. About 60 additional volunteers will be housed at the Episcopal Mission Center, managed by the Diocese of Pennsylvania. A map of the mission sites is here.Also at EYE14Offertory collections at the opening and closing Eucharists as well during Evening Prayer on July 11 brought in nearly $7,000 which will be divided among Episcopal Relief & Development, the United Thank Offering and the Church of the Advocate, a Philadelphia Episcopal church with an array of outreach activities.Participants were given the chance to choose the first saint for the 2015 Lent Madness bracket. The Rev. Scott Gunn and the Rev. Tim Schenck, members of the Lent Madness Supreme Executive Committee sent video greetings to EYE14 along with their invitation to choose between St. Francis of Assisi and the Archangel Gabriel. Gunn and Schenck were present on campus to supervise the vote and tally the results. Francis won with 60 percent of the vote, according an announcement made before the closing Eucharist.The event’s Twitter Hashtag #EYE14 was a trending topic during the evening of July 10, according to organizers.EYE 14 was present on these social media outlets:EYE14 social media hubArchived videoEYE14 FacebookVineInstagram– The Rev.

Añade el primado anglicano que miles de cristianos y otras minorías religiosas están siendo ejecutadas causando gran dolor e indignación.

Primero el rabino ortodoxo Joseph Raksin de Nueva York que visitaba la ciudad y que se dirigía al templo cumpliendo con las leyes del sabat en North Miami Beach fue asaltado por dos jóvenes afroamericanos para robarle. El rabino no cargaba ni prendas ni dinero. La policía no cree que fue un “crimen de odio” si no un delito común.  Segundo, en varios lugares de la ciudad se han visto suásticas y escritos en las paredes con palabras ofensivas a la comunidad judía.

first_img Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Posted Mar 8, 2016 Rector Washington, DC People Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI The Rev. Sue von Rautenkranz has accepted Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde’s invitation to serve in the newly-created position of Archdeacon of the Diocese of Washington. In this role, von Rautenkranz, a deacon and Christian Formation coordinator at St. Dunstan’s in Bethesda, will oversee the discernment, formation, and deployment process for deacons in the diocese, and serve as leader and convener of deacons in the diocese.“In the last few years, we have taken significant strides to create an organized and intentional diaconal ministry in the diocese,” Budde said. “I am thrilled that Sue is willing to guide this new ministry, and I have great confidence in her abilities to lead with both passion and sensitivity.”Von Rautenkranz has served parishes in Minnesota and South Carolina as well as St. Dunstan’s during her 23 years of ordained ministry. “I’m excited about the amazing people who feel called to this ministry, and the gifts they bring,” she said. “I believe they can transform the diocese and help us to become a people who are in ministry with and to the world around us.”There are 16 postulants to the diaconate currently pursuing their education and formation. Their callings include work among the elderly, in education, prison ministry and in multicultural and international settings. When ordained, they will serve in a variety of contexts across the newly established regions of the diocese.“The work of the Commission on Ministry and the Deacon’s Working Group has been extraordinary, and the response from the diocese from those who feel called to the deacon’s ministry has moved me to tears,” Budde said. “I feel as if the Spirit is moving in among us in powerful ways.” Cathedral Dean Boise, ID TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Submit a Press Release Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Submit an Event Listing Rector Albany, NY Fr.

Though, he suffers greatly, from Multiple Sclerosis, he never stops from giving of himself to G-d’s people! After terrible losses from his primary church in Baghdad, Iraq when l,000s were slaughtered by Daesh (ISIS)…he continued to work to set up refugee camps and schools for the remaining children and their families in neighboring countries. He always makes himself available to anyone of any faith, tribe, background…stating that he once invited one of the heads of Isis to dinner, but the man said, “I would come, but then I would have to chop off your head”. Canon is one of the most brilliant negotiators for peace in the Middle East and once said, “I don’t know what to say, but God does!”. He is of the highest quality in integrity, brains, wisdom and even humor; his love for God and people is breathtaking!! I love reading his books and following his adventures; but, even more, my husband (also with M.S.) and myself, love this man who has the biggest heart in all the universe. Though, he must wear protective military bullet-proof vests while ministering the most dangerous areas of the Middle East; when he is on tour for his thousands of speaking engagements, he is impeccably dressed: after all, he is an Englishman of the highest caliber, graduating from Cambridge, serving God, man and his country, in spite of constant pain and severe fatigue! His heart burns for the ways of his God, he deeply loves his wife, sons, adopted Godchildren, many adopted children~he is Abouna to so very, very many of all ages!!! I am completely honored he calls me, “dear friend” Patricia Ouellette Anderson, RN,FNP/PA Artist says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME June 24, 2016 at 6:15 pm Ive known Canon Andrew since my time in Iraq in 2008. His work and sacrifise for the persecuted church is non-stop and his integrity without question. He speaks publically so often that it is not surprising his words may have been misunderstood, or twisted by the many that are against his amazing work. He will surely be vindicated, in the meantime, may he get some rest. But doubtful this will slow him down. His passion for his mission unstoppable.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Photo: FRRME[Anglican Communion News Service] The President of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME), Canon Andrew White, has been suspended by the charity’s trustees. And the charity itself is the subject of a statutory inquiry by the official regulator of charities in England and Wales, the Charity Commission.Canon White, the FRRME, and the Charity Commission have all refrained from stating explicitly what the inquiry and suspension relates to; but it is understood to relate to concerns over alleged ransom payments to secure the release of young girls held as sex-slaves by Daesh. If any such payment had been made to Daesh, it would be unlawful in English law.In a statement, the trustees of FRRME confirmed that Canon White had been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the Charity Commission inquiry. “It would be inappropriate to comment further on an active investigation other than to say that the Foundation believe at this stage that the alleged incident stemmed from a genuine desire by Canon White to help others,” they said, as they confirmed that they were “cooperating fully” with the authorities.The Charity Commission confirmed that they had launched a statutory inquiry, but said they could not comment further on what was a “live investigation.” They said that once their inquiry is concluded, they would “publish a report detailing what issues the inquiry looked at, what actions were undertaken as part of the inquiry and what the outcomes were.”Canon White himself said that the inquiry was launched “in response to some inaccurate statements I made about our work with and funding for the former slave girls taken by [Daesh]. What is clear is that at no time did we pay money to any terrorists.”He asked his supporters to “please pray for us at this very difficult time.”Andrew White, a former Canon for Reconciliation at Coventry Cathedral, served as the Vicar of Baghdad until he was encouraged to leave the country following advances made by Daesh. He now spends his time travelling between his home in England and bases in Amman and Jerusalem.In Amman, he works as pastor to a number of Christian families who sought refuge in Jordan after fleeing Daesh’s advances in Iraq. And in Jerusalem he works on reconciliation initiatives between Israelis and Palestinians.His suspension by FRRME will not affect his preaching and teaching ministry.

Scott Gunn, a la izquierda, y el Rdo. Tim Schenck posan con una efigie de cartón de San Francisco de Asís, ganador del Halo de Oro 2015.[Episcopal News Service] La categoría está repleta de nombres importantes.  Los partidos pueden ser intensos. Los resultados individuales pueden depender de cambios de último momento. Y al final, sólo un competidor reclama el título de campeón.¿Locura de Marzo [March Madness]? No, esta es Locura de Cuaresma [Lent Madness] y el santo que sobrepase a todos será coronado con el Halo de Oro.P y R: Locura de CuaresmaNombre: Rdo. Tim SchenckEdad: 48Donde: Hingham, MassachusettsQuien: Rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan EvangelistaNombre: Rdo. Scott GunnEdad: 49Donde: Cincinnati, OhioQuien: Director ejecutivo del Movimiento AdelanteEl Rdo. Tim Schenck, un rector episcopal de Massachusetts, creó Locura de Cuaresma en 2010 como una rasgo distintivo de su blog . Dos años después, se asoció con el Movimiento Adelante [Forward Movement] y añadió un “coconspirador”, el Rdo. Scott Gunn, director ejecutivo del Movimiento Adelante. Desde entonces, Locura de Cuaresma ha llegado a ser tan popular entre cristianos de todas las denominaciones que la página web del torneo ha atraído una participación de 100.000 durante la competencia de 32 santos.Cada día, se le pide a los fans que voten por uno o dos santos luego de informarse acerca de ellos leyendo sus bien elaboradas biografías en Locura de Cuaresma. Hasta 10.000 votos se emiten cada día, dijo Gunn, y los participantes pueden marcar los resultados en una tabla de puntuaciones santas. Schenck y Gunn no están a favor de los juegos de azar, pero las iglesias y otras organizaciones estas invitadas a usar sus votaciones como herramientas de recaudación de fondos con fines benéficos.“¿Quién no querría decirle a todo el mundo en su parroquia que han ganado la Cuaresma?”, dijo Schenck.Schenck y Gunn hablaron por teléfono con Episcopal News Service el 22 de marzo mientas Locura de Cuaresma se acerca aceleradamente a la clasificación del Halo de Oro de este año el 12 de abril, Miércoles Santo.Parece que Locura de Cuaresma no tiene nada en absoluto que ver con los deportes. Dicho eso, ¿son ustedes dos fanáticos del baloncesto y siguen la auténtica Locura de Marzo?Schenck: La razón de que yo comenzará Locura de Cuaresma en primer lugar es que me cansé de que los fans del baloncesto acapararan toda la diversión en esta época del año, mientras los cristianos teníamos que renunciar a cosas y estar comiendo yerbitas y cosas por el estilo. Soy un gran fanático de los deportes, y me puse a pensar, un momento, combinemos estas dos cosas: santos y categorías. Desde luego que funcionarían juntos de maravilla. Y así comencé este proyecto de puro capricho, y ha llegado a ser lo que es hoy, en parte gracias a nuestra asociación con el Movimiento Adelante. Scott hablará de ser el Don King de mi Muhammad Alí, lo cual, en otras palabras, me haría el más importante y le daría a Scot un mal aspecto. Pero hablando en serio, el Movimiento Adelante ha hecho muchísimo por promover Locura de Cuaresma a lo largo de los años, y Scott y yo hemos trabajando juntos para correr la voz. Esa ha sido la levadura para hacer crecer el pan de Locura de Cuaresma.Scott, ¿eres fan del baloncesto?Gunn: No. Mentiría si dijera que sí. Pero soy muy competitivo.Locura de Cuaresma ha levantado muchos partidarios. Ustedes o sus seguidores han incurrido alguna vez en alguna especie de discusión “divina” respecto a quién debería de ganar?Schenck: Nosotros, como el Supremo Comité Ejecutivo, somos por supuesto imparciales. Pero alentamos la discusión en las redes sociales y eso desde luego sí ocurre.Gunn: Cuando Tim comenzó Locura de Cuaresma el primer año, cuando él mismo lo hacía en su blog, yo era un participante  y quería que George Herbert ganara. Y en consecuencia, antes de que yo fuera del Supremo y tuviera que ser neutral, llevé a cabo una terrible campaña de difamación contra Julián de Norwich y Teresa de Ávila, que resultó exitosa, podría añadir. De manera que esa es la razón por la cual George Herbert ganó el primer año, porque yo fui como el Karl Rove de Locura de Cuaresma.¿Pero ahora no puedes hacer eso, verdad?Gunn: Exactamente, es como cuando miras el discurso del Estado de la Unión y los magistrados del Tribunal Supremo se sientan con sus togas negras, y no pueden sonreír, ni ponerse de pie ni aplaudir ni nada. Tim y yo somos exactamente como eso, excepto que llevamos togas que son moradas, por supuesto.Schenck: Pero nosotros también tenemos la misma cantidad de seguridad laboral que tiene un magistrado del Tribunal Supremo porque nos hemos nombrado de por vida.Este es el octavo año. ¿Cuánto tiempo y esfuerzo dedican a planear las categorías y a supervisar los partidos?Schenck: Muchísimo tiempo. Cuando yo lo escribía todo durante los dos primeros años de Locura de Cuaresma, no recuerdo la Cuaresma de 2010 y la de 2011, valga decir. Pero contamos con una tremenda cantidad de apoyo y ayuda, no sólo del Movimiento Adelante, sino que contamos con 11 blogueros célebres. Y nuestros blogueros célebres son los que hacen el grueso de los escritos para las clasificaciones, y hacen un trabajo formidable para infundirles vida a esas almas santasGunn: Y luego en lo que se refiere a organizar las categorías, tenemos un período de nominaciones abiertas, en el que cualquiera puede sugerir santos elegibles. Eso tendrá lugar durante la estación de Pascua. Y recogemos todas las nominaciones y luego Tim y yo tenemos un retiro de primavera. Nos reunimos en alguna parte.Schenck: Un lugar seguro y secreto.Gunn: Sí, nos reunimos en un lugar seguro y secreto que usualmente es una cafetería, y usualmente nos lleva un par de días organizar el grupo y decidir cómo se organizan los partidos y a quién ponemos allí. Y luego a lo largo del verano, los blogueros célebres, bajo un enorme velo de misterio, escriben las primeras entradas y trabajamos en la tarjeta de puntuación santa. Y ya se ha convertido en una tradición que damos a conocer el grupo el 3 de noviembre, que es el Día de Todas las Categorías. Así como el 1 de noviembre es el Día de Todos los Santos, y el 2 es el de Todas las Almas [o de los Fieles Difuntos], el 3 de noviembre es el Día de Todas las Categorías.Luego, esto es un proceso de todo el añoSchenck: Oh, sí, estamos en el negocio de la Cuaresma perpetua.¿Entran en cada torneo con una idea al comienzo de quién ganará el Halo de Oro? ¿Y cómo es posible que Francisco de Asís perdiera en 2010?Schenck: Nunca participo, porque siempre me equivoco. Cualquiera que yo crea que va a ganar, no gana. De manera que dejé incluso de intentarlo. Scott, ¿tú apuestas?Gunn: Tenemos un grupo de apostadores aquí en Forward Movement para recaudar dinero para beneficencia, de manera que yo apuesto con ese fin. Pero no suelo hacerlo bien. Nunca he ganado.Schenck: Luego, la información del enterado no sirve.Gunn: San Francisco es en verdad un gran ejemplo. No salió muy bien en 2010 y luego avanzó todo el trayecto hacia la victoria en 2015, de manera que sencillamente uno no sabe. Creo que mucha gente se quedó pasmada y consideraron un revés que Juana de Arco perdiera este año en la primera ronda. Así, pues, uno nunca sabe.Schenck: Lo mismo que pasa con Locura de Marzo,  hay cenicientas y hay reveses y muchísimo drama.Gunn: Mi esperanza para Locura de Cuaresma es que siempre resulte inspiradora para la gente, que la gente aprenda algo de esto y que se diviertan jugando. A mí no me importa mucho quién gane o quién pierda [tanto como] que haya una figura interesante acerca de la cual las personas aprendan. Te garantizo que muchísima gente sabe acerca de Samuel Isaac Joseph Schereschewsky por Locura de Cuaresma que por lo que de otro modo sabrían acerca de él, y su historia es realmente inspiradora. Me siento orgulloso de Locura de Cuaresma por dar a conocer mejor su historia.Schenck: Toda la idea de poner a competir a santos entre sí es obviamente absurda. Todos ellos han ganado sus halos de oro en el Cielo. No tienen nada de que preocuparse sobre esa puntuación. Todo consiste en presentar algunas historias inspiradoras y dejar que la gente conozca a algunos santos muy conocidos con mayor profundidad y también presentándoles algunas figuras más oscuras que sí hicieron algunas cosas santas en su propio tiempo.¿Hay alguna manera en que las obras de un santo pudieran compararse a un mate de Michael Jordan o a un bloqueo de Shaq?Schenck: No sé, pienso que todos estos santos serían miembros del Equipo de Ensueño, de manera que existe esa analogía.Ustedes dos parecen ser claramente estudiosos [de la vida] de los santos, suena como que sus seguidores también lo son.Gunn: Locura de Cuaresma parece al principio que se trata de una competencia, y luego, cuando te fijas un poco más, ves que se trata realmente de aprender acerca de los santos. Y luego cuando lo miras aún más de cerca, ves que se trata de cómo Dios obra en personas ordinarias y desastrosas para hacer cosas extraordinarias. Y eso es lo que esperamos que sea uno de los logros de Locura de Cuaresma, que todos nosotros podamos inspirarnos para ver a Dios obrar en nuestras propias vidas, aunque acaso inspirarnos ocasionalmente por un poquito de tontadas.Cuando dicen personas ordinarias y desastrosas, ¿qué quieren decir con eso? Gunn: Bueno, que todos somos pecadores y que nadie es perfecto.Schenck: Literalmente ponemos a los santos en un pedestal, ya sea en estatuas, vidrieras o pinturas, y la gente se olvida de que fueron seres ordinarios a quienes les corría sangre por las venas, que ciertamente hicieron cosas heroicas o vivieron en tiempos particularmente intensos, y Dios los llamó a servir en nombre de Jesús de una manera particular. Fueron imperfectos, tuvieron fallos, y no obstante Dios los usó para hacer cosas heroicas. Creo que todos nosotros podemos encontrar alguna inspiración en eso.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.
