As a church, it was that sanctuary within a sanctuary, that the neighborhood trusted.Great article Mary! Thank you! Stephen C Holton says: Warriors of the Dream, an Episcopal Church Mission Enterprise Zone grant recipient, hosts a gathering based in Episcopal liturgy and using African drums at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Harlem and elsewhere in the neighborhood. Photo courtesy of Warriors of the DreamEditor’s note: This story is part of a series profiling the Episcopal Church’s recent work planting new churches and other faith communities. Other stories about recipients of grants from the Episcopal Church’s Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting can be found here. [Episcopal News Service] Sometimes you hear a phrase and it just sticks with you. You ponder its meaning, knowing at some level that there is a message in it for you.For the Rev. Steve Holton, an experience he had in 1995 has been “a blessing and a guide” to what is now Warriors of the Dream, an innovative program of community building and leadership training with people on the economic and social margins of their neighborhood. The program is based at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in the heart of Harlem and supported in part by two Episcopal Church Mission Enterprise Zone grants.Back in 1995, Holton was the rector of St. Paul’s on-the-Hill Episcopal Church in Ossining, New York, about three miles from Sing Sing prison. He heard African-American actor and activist Ossie Davis speak at the first graduation ceremony for the Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison. Davis marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and was the emcee for the 1963 March on Washington when King gave his “I Have a Dream” speech.Davis, Holton said, often visited the 20 inmates in the program as a kind of “elder.”“He leaned over the podium and said, ‘You are my sons, you are my warriors of the dream,’” Holton recalled in an interview with Episcopal News Service. “And, of course, he was referring to Martin’s dream of the Beloved Community.” That sort of community, Davis knew as an actor, is built through what Holton calls “creative community.”The Rev. Steve Holton says the idea for Warriors of the Dream began to take shape more than 25 years ago. Photo courtesy of Steve HoltonFast-forward to 2013, as Holton was about to earn a second theology degree to follow the Master of Divinity he received from The General Theological Seminary in 1988. The question he explored was, “What is it about the Episcopal Church that lends itself to community ministry with everybody who’s there?” Holton studied the Anglican monastic tradition’s elements of “food, music and sacred speech.”As he was thinking about the music part of a potential ministry, a friend told Holton that he had 12 African drums that needed a home. “I said, I’ll take them,” Holton said.Warriors began at St. Philip’s because its now-deceased rector, the Rev. Keith Johnson, was “open to hosting us so that we could work in the neighborhood,” Holton said. Johnson’s goal was ministry to the neighborhood and “not specifically church growth.” Johnson wanted to explore how to connect the church to the people who live around it.Holton’s recollection of Ossie Davis’ elder role came to the foreground. “Being an elder has been a theme of Warriors and, in terms of the larger macro goal, is to teach adults how to be elders, because one thing I’ve learned in my discussions with neighborhood leaders both in Westchester and Harlem is what makes a neighborhood is elders,” he said. “What makes children think is elders, not just learning stuff, but kind of being in the shelter of elders.”Holton formed two important partnerships. Jeannine Otis, the director of music at St. Mark’s Church In-The-Bowery, joined him, following, he said, Jesus’ command to go out to minister two by two. “As a twosome, you model and experience community,” Holton said. Moreover, when a white man and a black woman create that sort of community, “you expand community beyond the borders people usually draw around themselves and you automatically become available to a whole lot of information you never grew up with,” he added.Holton and Otis then connected with Akil Rose, “the kind of neighborhood leader who never darkens the door of the church” but who, Holton said, is interested in African religions as well as Islam and “the mutual nourishment of all religions.”They initially thought Warriors of the Dream ought to try to reach children “who are at risk because they don’t join things” like church. However, early Warriors gatherings attracted people who worked with at-risk kids and “needed a place of nourishment themselves.” Warriors also began to attract formerly incarcerated neighbors who felt their families and churches didn’t welcome their return. Moreover, people whom Holton called “church folk who are on the edges of their churches” began coming for a variety of reasons.“In a world that is wrestling over the right doctrine, whether it’s one extreme or the other, having a group of people that says it’s all about fellowship and the ancient prayers and making music together, that’s a serious antidote,” he said.The antidote was to create a time for, as the Warriors of the Dream brochure calls it, “a sanctuary for the dreams and hopes of many, and neighborhood transformation.”The gatherings, which began on All Saints’ Sunday in 2013, have a simple structure. They begin with a breathing meditation and drumming, which Holton describes as “the best of who we are, that’s mysticism.” He uses the example in Genesis 14 in which Melchizedek is providing an “open offer of hospitality … and giving his best to this stranger,” Abraham, who has been wandering in the wilderness, getting caught up in tribal warfare.Otis shares a scripture passage and people discuss what those verses mean in their lives, “and we rapidly go deep,” Holton said. He listens for a theme around which he crafts a “final message.” A “drum blessing” follows, and then people disperse.New people come to the gathering and “rapidly go to the same deep level we’ve all been because, as you know as an Episcopalian, the liturgy has that effect of opening that doorway in time into the heart of God, and you’re just there and feel it and you realize you were there, and then you leave and go back out on the street,” Holton said.He has always been convinced that “it’s our liturgy that converts people,” in part because that is how he became an Episcopalian and was baptized as an adult.Holton “showed that you can gather people with drum circles, you can adapt Episcopal liturgies to people who have no interest in becoming Episcopalians. They just want to follow Jesus or even follow the Spirit,” the Rev. Tom Brackett, the Episcopal Church’s manager for church planting and mission development, told ENS.“Steve invited us to learn with him that following Jesus into the neighborhood asks us to serve people, to serve our brothers and sisters in ways that bless them. And the by-product of that, many times, is that it also blesses the church at large, sometimes with new members and new pledges and a worshipping community, but not always.”Warriors of the Dream received one of the 30 first $20,000 Episcopal Church Mission Enterprise Zone grants awarded in December 2013. Mission Enterprise Zones are designated geographic areas, congregations or dioceses with a mission focused on serving under-represented groups, such as young people, poor and less-educated people, people of color and those who never, or hardly ever, attend church.Warriors then received a renewal grant in October 2016, one of three such grants for Mission Enterprise Zones originally funded in the 2013-15 triennium.Warriors of the Dream hit a rough patch earlier this year. “We were having a lot of trouble just getting people [to come] and also running low on funding,” Holton said. He was discerning if the project “had lived its natural life” and along the way had taught him things that he is using in his ministry in North Salem, New York, where he is the interim rector of St. James Episcopal Church. He is using the same ideas from Harlem for gathering people who live near St. James and are outside the church.However, Holton began looking at who was still coming to the Warriors gathering to see where the Holy Spirit might be pointing. What he saw was many of the newer people were former educators “who had real heart for reaching out to those young kids that we had tried to get back in the beginning, but we just grew in a different direction.”One of those folks, who was also getting nourished by the gatherings, said she wanted to work with a local Roman Catholic deacon at the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Community Center near Harlem Hospital. The center, Holton said, is a magnet for mothers looking for good places for their children to hang out. He hopes the work that is beginning there can be “the doorway into the larger Warriors experience.”In addition, Holton said his St. James congregation, which he describes as both wealthy and politically conservative in the classic definition of that stance, is happy to have the connections that Holton brings from Harlem to northern Westchester County. His parishioners have become interested in ministry with incarcerated people. They are eager to learn and to minster to and with them, Holton said.The Warriors musicians are being asked to lead religious services of all kinds, and they will continue to be open to those sorts of calls, he said.All the while, Holton said, he operates from a stance that he wishes more Episcopalians would take. “We should own our identity as radical liturgists,” he said, stressing again that “it’s that the liturgy is profoundly formational.”Episcopalians need to “believe again in the heart of our faith and in the heart of God incarnate and present in the world and then come out of those walls as Melchizedek did. Don’t just do it inside the church building,” he said. “Think of ways to get it out beyond the doors.”“This is not really the continuation of church by other means. It is really Mother Church midwifing the next generation, and the next generation will be something new,” he said. “It will have a whole lot, biologically, in common with the last generation but will be a part of the new spirit, just as Mary gave birth to Jesus. The church is always Mary and the new ministry is always Jesus, and she is going to be worried sick about him. But, it is going to go on to new stuff and appeal to a whole bunch of people who never would have made it in the door. That’s where we are now.”— The Rev.

Photo courtesy of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota via Faith & Leadership[Faith & Leadership] Nine-year-old Caleb Barnett of Edina, Minnesota, wasn’t the only one getting a bit teary in May when he reluctantly reached for his 2020 calendar and crossed off Christian camp, canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. His mother, Sarah, was as sad as he was. She runs camps for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota and knew he’d be missing a fun learning experience.But she began to see raw material for Caleb’s ongoing spiritual formation in the community that started showing up on their doorstep. Every day at noon, a group of his bike-riding friends — no longer tightly scheduled with organized activities — would swing by to get him and cruise the neighborhood.Having gotten to know their parents, she decided to invite the families over every Friday for a socially distant backyard camp that’s largely about Christian hospitality — and they’ve been coming. There are even matching T-shirts for all the kids.“I’ve actually thought of that as how I could empower my camp families to be that kind of local presence in their neighborhoods this summer,” said Barnett, the missioner for children, youth, camp and young adults at the diocese. “Maybe they just do a little picnic every Friday, invite their kids’ friends’ families and do this kind of relational ministry that Jesus was all about, even if it’s not vacation Bible school format.”As the strange summer of 2020 arrives, families are finding that they can’t count on the usual seasonal programming to help kids keep making progress in spiritual formation. Short-term mission trips are canceled. Christian camps and vacation Bible schools are taking the season off or pivoting temporarily to new models that can be administered at home, in small, socially distanced groups or online.Read the entire article here.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Amid the continued uncertainty of an unrelenting coronavirus pandemic, the church’s presiding officers announced Nov. 20 that they had decided, with Executive Council’s unanimous backing, to postpone the 80th General Convention from July 2021 to July 2022, a move intended to ensure the large churchwide legislative gathering can be held in person in Baltimore, Maryland, as originally planned.“Like you, we have spent the last several months riding waves of pandemic news,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, said in a letter to bishops and deputies. Even with vaccines expected to be approved as soon as next month, “it is unlikely that even highly effective vaccines and robust federal intervention would permit us to gather as many as 10,000 people safely by next summer, as we had originally planned.”Instead, the 80th General Convention has been rescheduled for July 7-14, 2022, with additional preparatory meetings to be held in Baltimore in the days before the convention. That timing means General Convention will conclude just two weeks before the start of the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops, which was rescheduled for July 27-Aug. 8, 2022, in Canterbury, England.READ: Presiding officers’ letter to bishops and deputies on 80th General ConventionGeneral Convention is The Episcopal Church’s largest gathering of each triennium, a hub for nearly two weeks of legislative activity, networking and fellowship. As the church’s primary, bicameral governing body, General Convention splits its authority between the House of Bishops and House of Deputies. Among its responsibilities is approval of a three-year churchwide budget plan, as well as hundreds of additional resolutions covering everything from liturgical revisions to the church’s stances on a long list of public policy issues, such as food insecurity and comprehensive immigration reform.Every three years, General Convention is a big boon to the host city’s economy, generating an estimated impact of $23-25 million through hotel stays, meals, entertainment and ancillary tourism spending. That was a top consideration, the presiding officers said earlier this year, as they were deliberating whether to postpone the 80th General Convention or try moving it online.“The Diocese of Maryland is as enthusiastic about hosting the 80th General Convention in 2022 as we had been for 2021,” the Rev. Scott Slater, Maryland’s canon to the ordinary, said in a written statement for this story. The diocese, Slater added, is “grateful for an additional year to plan and prepare to welcome bishops, deputies and guests to Baltimore.”Curry and Jennings said in their announcement that postponing the in-person convention was possible “without significant contractual penalties.” Planning for General Convention starts at least seven years in advance, with review and selection of the host city finalists, making last-minute changes unrealistic. The churchwide budget includes $750,000 for holding each General Convention.Episcopal News Service was not allowed access to Executive Council’s discussion of the postponement. Its Nov. 20 online meeting was held in executive session, or closed to the public. Church officials cited contractual and financial discussions as the reason for the executive session.As outlined in a June 5 letter to the church, the presiding officers had formed a task force to review options for the 80th General Convention. That task force was to present its report to the Joint Standing Committee on Planning and Arrangements. That committee met online Nov. 18, but it, too, was in executive session and not accessible to reporters.Postponing or moving a General Convention is rare but not unprecedented. A yellow fever outbreak in 1798 forced the postponement of the Sixth General Convention to June 1799 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.In 1918, that year’s devastating influenza pandemic peaked in the fall and eventually would kill an estimated 675,000 Americans and millions more worldwide. The flu, though becoming less virulent, was still circulating in 1919 but did not derail the 46th General Convention, which gathered that October in Detroit, Michigan.In 1955, church leaders canceled plans to meet in Houston, Texas, because local authorities wouldn’t ensure desegregated facilities. The convention convened in Hawai’i instead.The decision to delay the 80th General Convention by a year will require some interim measures, particularly regarding the church’s budget and leadership.Executive Council, which serves as the church’s governing body between meetings of General Convention, normally would prepare a new triennial budget for review early next year. Instead, it will draft a one-year budget for 2022 that will be approved in October 2021. Then in January 2022, it will present a two-year budget proposal, for 2023-24, which will be considered by General Convention when it meets in person in Baltimore.Curry and Jennings said in their Nov. 20 announcement that an online election will be held in 2021 to form membership of the Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop. Curry’s tenure as the church’s 27th presiding bishop will end in 2024. Jennings is in her final term as House of Deputies president; however, that term doesn’t end until her successor is elected at the next meeting of General Convention.Arrangements also are in the works to allow those serving in other elected and appointed positions to continue in those roles through 2021. The presiding officers’ letter didn’t elaborate on that process.And “an online convocation of worship and prayer” will be scheduled for summer 2021 “to help us hear what the Spirit is saying to the church as we prepare to gather at General Convention,” Curry and Jennings said.“Since March, Episcopalians across the church have responded to our pandemic-stricken communities with compassionate service and committed advocacy, bearing witness to our promise to seek and serve Christ in all persons,” they concluded. “In the coming months, our commitment to the Gospel will be even more essential to our communities and congregations.“Especially in these difficult days, may we hold fast to loving one another as Jesus commanded and take heart in the promise of a joyful reunion in 2022.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Smartphones: Are they Smart for Kids?

With the whole Internet just a click away, it’s no wonder kids and teens are tempted to scroll from sunup to sundown. But how much is too much?A new report reveals that the amount of time kids spend on their mobile screens has tripled in the last four years. On average, children eight and under spend more time on their phones than they do reading or being read to. The average time per day spent looking at various screen media? Two hours and 19 minutes, with 35 percent of that taking place on mobile devices.Kids are picking up smartphones faster than researchers can create usage guidelines, but virtually all of them agree on one thing: more screen time means more problems for young brains. Some scientists are even drawing a link between smartphone use and surging rates of teen depression and suicide.Florida Hospital pediatrician Analise Casey, MD, joined us to talk about what’s at stake, and what parents can do when it comes to kids and smartphones.Q: How much is too much screen time for kids and teens?A: It depends on the age. Under two years of age, we recommend no screen time, including TV, computers, video games, and smartphones. For children over two, some screen time is okay but no longer than two hours per day. It’s better for them to be out experiencing the world, playing. They can learn so much more that way.However, we find that children are spending significantly more time than what we recommend when you factor in the collective time on phones, TV, and computers.Q: Why is screen time not recommended at all up to age 2?A: Screens are not good for the developing brain in infants and children under two years old. It’s better for them to be engaged with more social and hands-on learning opportunities.It’s not that screens are dangerous, it’s just not the best way for someone under age two to be spending time. Time reading, playing with toys, interacting with parents, family and other children are healthier for overall development.Q: Is it okay to use screens when you’re in a pinch, like in a waiting room or on a long airplane ride?A: We all do that, and sometimes screens can help calm a child down and distract them. But there are times that you want to avoid using screens for this reason because children learn these associations. For example, try to avoid using screens if you’re going out to dinner, and find another way to engage your child, such as drawing, playing a game at the table or talking to them about their day or meal.If you are going on a long trip, it’s okay to use some screens to help the time pass, but they should be seen as a privilege and not the norm. When it comes to temper tantrums or undesirable behaviors, don’t use screens to calm a child down. This sends a message to them that they are being rewarded for that behavior.Q: How do you know if it’s affecting your child?A: Too much screen time, especially too close to bedtime, can cause difficulty falling asleep. If you notice disruptions in sleep patterns, or nightmares, it could be a clue.[Smartphones] can also create stress, affect mood and increase risks for depression and sadness. This is because too much screen time can cut off your interaction with the outside world and your social relationships, which help protect you from anxiety, depression, and sadness. In children, social activities are critical for healthy development.Along those lines, if your child is moving from one screen to the next, this doesn’t help in promoting healthy attention and focus to an activity. So, for children with attention disorders such as ADHD, screen time is especially important to monitor.Dr. Casey’s Tips for ParentsA little discipline can go a long way in nurturing positive screen behaviors in kids. Here is Dr. Casey’s advice for setting boundaries in your home.1. Make Bedrooms a Screen-Free Zone“I often speak to parents about whether or not there is a TV in their child’s room; I recommend not having one. Keep screens in family areas where there is more supervision and accountability. If kids have screens in their rooms, they tend to watch them a lot more, and even right before bed, which can disrupt sleep.It’s also a good idea to have phones and devices charging in the kitchen or family room (not in bedrooms). Set a time at night when all devices are plugged in and off for the day. Keep kids’ rooms a safe place to sleep and relax.”2. Check Your Own Screen Usage“Children model after us, so be mindful about picking up your phones all of the time or endlessly scrolling through your social media feeds during family time. It’s important to regulate ourselves, including how much and when we are using technology. Children think it’s okay if they see us doing it.While [social media] is a great opportunity to keep in touch with family and friends, if you are sharing photos of your children, make sure that you do so safely and with your privacy settings to your comfort level.”3. Keep Screen Activities Age-Appropriate“Know what games your children are playing and what they are viewing to make sure the content is age-appropriate. Technology makes so many things very accessible. I have seen some children experience nightmares over something they just briefly saw from a social media or web search.Talk to your children about how to keep screen time safe and within boundaries. And if you have any questions about screen time, don’t hesitate to talk to your child’s pediatrician.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Orange County Corrections Department gives back to its community

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate —NAMIWalks events bring together people of all ages to combat stigmaCombatting those who say there is a stigma is much more appropriate. Repeating them helps not at all. 1 COMMENT LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Harold A Maio TAGSOrange CountyOrange County Corrections Department Previous articleApopka High sophomore chosen for Disney Dreamer’s AcademyNext articleA wilderness surprise Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply And on April 1, the department was back at it again with another visit to Great Oaks Village—this time with a special delivery of furniture built by inmates in the jail’s construction program. The donation included Adirondack chairs for the library, picnic tables for the covered basketball court and a bookshelf for one of the campus offices.Great Oaks Village is a foster group home for children who have been removed from their homes by the State of Florida. It serves children and teens with nowhere else to go. The majority of its residents have been abused or neglected.Dr. Tracy Salem, Manager of Youth and Family Services for Orange County, couldn’t be happier.“We are so appreciative of this donation and our wonderful partnership with Orange County Corrections. The campus will get great use out of the new furniture,” Salem said.Alex Amarante, one of the inmates who helped build the donations, said he was touched to be able to contribute to such a meaningful cause.“Never get tired of doing little things for others,” Amarante said. “Sometimes those little things can have the biggest impact on someone else’s life.”Each graduating construction class completes a give-back project to donate to a local cause.“In the construction program, inmate workers learn new skills while they give back to the community in a positive way,” said Chief of Orange County Corrections Louis A. Quiñones, Jr.The agency also recently sponsored several seats on the bus for students participating in the YMCA’s Teen Achievers Annual Spring College Tour for 2019. Chief Quiñones said the Corrections Department has been a longstanding supporter of the Teen Achievers Program to propel students toward success and to keep them from getting involved in the criminal justice system.The Orange County Corrections Department has also put together a team for the Upcoming NAMIWalks at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs on Saturday, April 27. NAMIWalks events bring together people of all ages to combat stigma, raise funds and promote awareness of mental illness. Since nearly 40 percent of inmates have some sort of mental health issue, the cause is near and dear to the Corrections Department. Visit the team’s online page to participate or support the effort.Deputy County Administrator of Public Safety Danny Banks is pleased with and supportive of such efforts.“A culture of giving back is not only one of the most inspiring ways to engage staff, but it also offers Orange County employees the chance to stay connected to and respond to the needs of the community,” Banks said.

Ugo Monye and Kelly Brown both okay after bad head clash

first_imgMonday Mar 15, 2010 Ugo Monye and Kelly Brown both okay after bad head clash Both Englands Ugo Monye and Scotlands Kelly Brown have suffered no long term affects from their horrible head clash that ended both their matches at Murrayfield on the weekend.Brown walked off with help from medical staff, while Monye was eventually stretchered off following the big knock that reminded many of the unfortunate injury to Scottish winger Thom Evans not too long ago.Apparently by Saturday night, Brown was already entertaining the Scotland squad by singing and playing guitar. His chances of playing in the next match will be based on cognitive therapy tests this week.Monye was taken for a precautionary x-ray and scan, but the results showed that no significant damage took place, so he was discharged to the care of the England medical team.“If appropriate, a further injury update will be made when the England squad reconvenes on Monday,” said the Rugby Football Union.Scotlands Evans, who following his injury against Wales has had to have double spinal surgery, summoned the strength to give a pre-match talk to the players on Saturday.Evans future in the game is still unknown at this stage, but the fact that the 24 year old was walking is a miracle in itself. According to his brother Max, he came within a millimeter of paralysis or death.Dan Parks has recounted how moving it was to have Evans talk to the side.“It was a really touching moment. He’s a great guy, Thommy, and I’m going to miss playing with him,” said Parks, who will be joining Cardiff.“It was a great occasion, very emotional, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. It was great to see him and great to see him up and about, walking around.” Time: 02:06ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

France crush Wales’ outside hope of Championship win

first_imgMonday Mar 21, 2011 France crush Wales’ outside hope of Championship win Lionel Nallet scored a brace of times as France brushed aside Wales 28-9 and leap-frogged the visitors into second place in the final 2011 Six Nations standings.The agile French lock scored either side of half-time, with his tries killing off any ambitions the Welsh had of pulling of a shock win.Whilst Ireland’s 24-8 win over England meant that if Wales could beat France by 27 points they would be crowned Six Nations champions, they were blown away by a clinical France side who looked to reclaim some face after the shock defeat to Italy last week.Welsh fly-half James Hook took a well-struck penalty early on and wing Leigh Halfpenney was fractions from a score until a brilliantly timed ankle tap from fly-half Francois Trinh-Duc prevented the score.Instead it was France who got the games first try, with Nallett throwing a dummy and charging to the line; and when Hook’s attempted clearance kick was charged down by Julien Pierre early in the second-half, Nallet was allowed to touch down for the second time.Hook was in the sin bin for an alleged dangerous tackle when Vincent Clerc made the extra man count, collecting Trinh-Ducs chip to score France’s third try.A content Marc Livremont said that he was encouraged by the manner with which his team bounced back from defeat to Italy last week.“What is important here was the reaction of the players,” he said.“I feel happy. I also feel a bit of relief. I’m really impatient to leave this room to go and enjoy a beer. It’s not about what was said outside the group but what was said within the group and this what went right on the field today,” the coach added. _____________________________________________________________________________________ sponsored by: Guinness Get your team out, with Lee Byrne!
