Episcopal News Service photo by James H. Thrall[Episcopal News Service] Tributes from around the world, following the news of former Presiding Bishop Edmond Lee Browning’s death on July 11, expressed an overwhelming sense of loss for a leader who had the courage, strength and conviction to make the Episcopal Church a place where, in his words, “there will be no outcasts.”“Bishop Browning widened the doors of the Episcopal Church, inviting in an array of people who had previously felt left out,” said the Rev. Canon Brian Grieves, former director of peace and justice ministries for the Episcopal Church, who served on the staff of three presiding bishops, including Browning.“Motivated by compassion, he set the Episcopal Church on a course that would allow gay men and lesbians to come out of the closet and serve openly in the church,” Grieves told ENS from his home in Hawaii, where Browning had served as diocesan bishop before becoming presiding bishop.At his first press conference after his election as presiding bishop in September 1985, Browning was asked about a General Convention resolution that was clearly intended to prevent gay people from being ordained, Grieves recalled. “He responded by saying he didn’t think the church should legislate against people.”In 1988, at his first General Convention as presiding bishop, he welcomed a display of the AIDS quilt, and challenged all the bishops to develop a personal relationship with someone living with AIDS, which he modeled himself.  “Until then, people with AIDS had largely been shunned and ignored,” Grieves said.Bruce Garner, president of the LGBT advocacy group Integrity USA and a former Executive Council member from the Diocese of Atlanta, said that the Episcopal Church has lost one of its giants.During the early 1990s, when Garner served a previous term as president of Integrity, he recalled meeting with Browning and celebrated the openness with which he engaged the issues of full inclusion for LBGT people in the life of the church.“I would become the first president of Integrity to meet with a presiding bishop. I was a little nervous, but I need not have been. Bishop Browning embraced me with his loving aura and sat with me on a sofa in his office as we talked,” he said. “Another first and an expression of his vision of no outcasts was his acceptance to be our speaker and guest at our next Integrity convention. When he stated from the pulpit … that he really didn’t care what the press thought, we got a glimpse of his ardent support for us and his refusal for us to be outcast by the church.”Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, primate of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, said that Browning left “a precious theological-pastoral legacy to the Anglican Communion by safely leading the church beyond borders of so many taboo and challenging issues. In a practical and generous way he has built up bridges with sister churches, in an effective gesture of what has been called ‘Partners in Mission.’”Da Silva said he was grateful to Browning for bringing their two provinces – which had historical relations dating back to 1890 – even closer, especially following the hardships the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil experienced since it was granted autonomy from the Episcopal Church in 1965.“Bishop Browning and former [Brazilian] Primate Dom Olavo Ventura Luiz started a new movement in relations between our churches, which for some time had been asleep, and mother and daughter church rebuilt their affective and historical relations,” said da Silva. “We want to express our gratitude for the life and ministry of Bishop Edmond Browning, who was truly a ‘Shepherd of Sheep,’ encouraging and supporting all people baptized in their ministries and gifts!”Browning was installed as presiding bishop a few months before Desmond Tutu was elected archbishop of Cape Town and retired the year after Tutu did.“I could not have wished for a more supportive friend – both personally and of our church – at the height of our struggle against apartheid,” said Tutu.“He and Patti witnessed for justice everywhere, whether in South Africa, Palestine, Central America or beyond. I had the privilege of travelling with him, Michael Peers of Canada and Orland Lindsay of the West Indies to Nicaragua and Panama at difficult times for those countries and for their relations with the U.S. He spoke out for justice, peace and democracy superbly and courageously.“I owe so much to so many, not least to dear Ed and Patti. May Ed rest in peace and rise in glory.”Browning made history by consecrating the Rev. Barbara Harris of the Diocese of Massachusetts as the first female bishop in the Episcopal Church and in the Anglican Communion.“The night before he laid hands on Barbara Harris’s head and ordained her the first female bishop, he moved an assembly by saying ‘these hands are ready’!” recalled Grieves.Browning will also be remembered for awakening the Episcopal Church to the injustice of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian people, a cause his wife Patti also embraced with annual visits to the Holy Land, Grieves said.Each of the three presiding bishops who succeeded Browning – Bishops Frank Griswold, Katharine Jefferts Schori and Michael Curry – offered tributes to his life and ministry in a press release from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs.“The Episcopal Church is faithfully seeking to truly become, ‘a house of prayer for all people,’ as Jesus said quoting the Hebrew prophets, and that is greatly the case because Presiding Bishop Browning taught us that the church must be a place where there are no outcasts,” said Curry, the 27th presiding bishop, in the release. “That enduring legacy is still helping to set many a captive free. It is evidence that God is not finished with us yet, for every once and a while spiritual giants still walk among us as living reminders.”Many condolences and tributes were shared on social media, including from the Rt. Rev. George Packard, former bishop suffragan for armed services and federal ministries, who described Browning as “unfailing and faithful, he led us toward no barriers even when we were hesitant and lacked his courage and love.”The Rt. Rev. Steven Charleston, a former staff officer for Native American ministries, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska from 1991 to 1996 and later dean of Episcopal Divinity School, called Browning “a truly saintly person, full of vision and courage.”Browning had worked to expand the church’s ministries with Native Americans, forming a groundbreaking national committee made up solely of indigenous members of the church.Owanah Anderson of the Choctaw nation, and Episcopal Church indigenous officer on Browning’s staff, said at the news of his death, “Bishop Browning was the best friend my people ever had.”Grieves said: “That probably sums up the feeling of most every person in the church who had the good fortune to know him.”Browning “inspired a generation of us as a missionary priest, an international bishop, and presiding bishop,” said the Rt. Rev. Christopher Epting, former Bishop of Iowa who served on Executive Council with Browning for three years. “When he presided at my consecration, my only prayer was to follow in his footsteps. His contribution to this church, and to the cause of Christ in incalculable. May his rest this day be in the Paradise of God.”Integrity’s Garner said that Browning “now rests in the bosom of the God who created, redeemed and sustained him throughout a long and productive ministry. By now he has heard the words ‘well done, good and faithful servant.’ May he rest in peace and rise in glory. May we ponder our loss even as we celebrate a ministry from which we received innumerable benefits.”The official obituary by Sheryl Kujawa Holbrook, author of Heart of a Pastor, A Life of Edmond Lee Browning, is available here.ENS has collected tributes and obituaries in memory of Bishop Edmond Lee Browning here.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Episcopales ‘a la vanguardia’ con el cuidado pastoral en tiempo…

Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Faith & Politics Rector Knoxville, TN Submit an Event Listing Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Belleville, IL [Episcopal News Service] Muchos estadounidenses aguardan con gran impaciencia las elecciones generales del 8 de noviembre, y no porque les entusiasmen.Más de la mitad (52 por ciento) de los estadounidenses adultos dice que las elecciones de 2016 son fuente de mucho —o al menos de un nivel significativo— de estrés, según datos de una investigación de la Asociación Psicológica Americana. Los demócratas (el 55 por ciento) y los republicanos (el 59 por ciento) coinciden estadísticamente con estos resultados.La angustia va más allá de quién gane o quién pierda.“Creo que hay muchísima ansiedad respecto a la falta de urbanidad y [al] divisionismo” que rodea a estas elecciones, dijo el Muy Rdo. Brian Baker, deán de la catedral episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Cathedral] en Sacramento, California, en una entrevista reciente para Episcopal News Service. “Todas las evaluaciones, la polarización, la masificación de personas, las atemorizaciones —todo eso corroe el alma de nuestras comunidades”.Baker dijo que él cree que esta temporada electoral es el momento de que la Iglesia dé testimonio de una manera diferente de ser, de encarnar lo que él llama “la marcada distinción” entre la cultura de la Iglesia y la del mundo. Por ejemplo, dijo él, criar a los niños en una comunidad eclesiástica es “hacerse menos opcional… si usted quiere que su hijo sea parte de una comunidad que realmente habla de respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano”.Respecto a eso, una encuesta del proyecto Tolerancia Docente [Teaching Tolerance] encontró que los maestros están reportando un aumento del acoso escolar de estudiantes cuyas razas, religiones o nacionalidades han sido blanco de los candidatos. Los maestros también han notado lo que el informe llama un “alarmante nivel de temor y ansiedad entre niños de color e inflamatorias tensiones raciales y étnicas en el aula”. Mas del 40 por ciento de los maestros encuestados dijeron que estaban dudosos de enseñar sobre las elecciones.Mientras el clima político se intensifica, algunos congregaciones han celebrado reuniones para que sus miembros ventilen sus preocupaciones y disciernan cómo responder lealmente a esta temporada. Algunos han dirigido campañas de inscripción de votantes y otros preparan vigilias de oración para el día de las elecciones y la víspera.“Todos los episcopales que están dando a conocer sus preocupaciones ahora están acertando”, dijo a ENS el Hon. Byron Rushing —auxiliar del líder de la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes de Massachusetts, quien es también vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados de la Iglesia Episcopal—, añadiendo que él percibe esta preocupación como sin precedentes.La iglesia episcopal de San Jorge [St. George’s] en Texas City, Texas, al norte de Galveston, ha empleado la ayuda de Boy Scouts, empresas y vecinos de la localidad para crear letreros de “esperanza” en torno a la comunidad y recordarle a la gente que reunirse en unidad es fundamental en lo que la Iglesia llama “un contencioso y tóxico año electoral”. Quinientos letreros, pintados a mano, con la palabra “esperanza” [hope] serán bendecidos en la iglesia el 19 de noviembre durante la feria anual de la iglesia como un recordatorio de que “la mayor historia es siempre de esperanza y amor”, dijo la Rda. Robin Reeves, la rectora. “Nuestra esperanza es que nuestra comunidad se unirá después de las elecciones, no importa quién salga electo, por el bien de nuestra comunidad, de la nación y por el bien del futuro de nuestros niños”, dijo ella, añadiendo que los que pintan los letreros esperan que la gente “elegirá el amor sobre el temor”. Foto de la iglesia episcopal de San Jorge.La Rda. Emily Mellott, rectora de la iglesia del Calvario [Calvary Church] en Lombard, Illinois, auspició uno de esos debates a mediados de octubre.“De lo que hablamos fue fundamentalmente acerca de cómo encontrar el fundamento de nuestra fe cuando el discurso público está tan dividido y se percibe tan remoto de nuestros valores y nuestra fe”, le dijo ella a ENS. “Hablamos acerca de leer los salmos y los profetas para conectarnos con otras épocas cuando el pueblo de Dios se había sentido perdido en el caos —es un modelo de cómo mantenerse en contacto con Dios cuando parece como si Dios estuviera lejos del caos”.Los asistentes también conversaron acerca de buscar los valores del pacto bautismal en las noticias y el debate de las elecciones, tales como el respeto y la justicia, y lo que Mellott llamó los “valores relacionados como integridad, paciencia y humildad”.“Y luego una persona nos recordó que —como un antídoto al temor respecto a si nuestra democracia sobrevivirá— la misión de la Iglesia seguirá adelante no importa quien gane”, dijo Mellot. “Ella sugirió que la confianza en eso la ayuda a tratar los temores de esta temporada electoral como una distracción, no un problema central, y nos permite concentrarnos en lo que es importante en nuestra fe”.Obviamente, esas clases de discusiones no tienen por objeto abogar por un candidato versus otro o por un partido versus otro. Ni siquiera se proponen alcanzar un acuerdo.“En verdad hay desacuerdos útiles que podemos tener”, le dijo a ENS la Rda. Pamela Dolan rectora de la iglesia de El Buen Pastor [Church of the Good Shepherd] en Town and Country, Misurí, al oeste de San Luis. “Si todos estuviéramos en la misma posición respecto a todas las cosas todo el tiempo, no estoy segura por qué [alguien querría] ir a la iglesia. ¿Qué puede uno obtener de eso? ¿Te ha dicho alguien lo que ya sabes y te hace sentir bien respecto a lo que ya crees? No estoy interesada en eso y espero que la gente quiera un poquito más de substancia. Creo que la mayoría de la gente la quiere”.El objetivo de tales conversaciones, le dijo a ENS la obispa Mariann Budde, de la Diócesis de Washington, debe centrarse en “¿cómo encontrar un medio en que se escuchen todas las voces, que le permita a la gente hablar su propia verdad y luego permitirle a la comunidad avanzar de una manera que sea parte de la reconciliación que necesitamos” más allá de la comunidad de la Iglesia.La “ansiedad y la preocupación” antes y después de las elecciones, dijo Rushing, le da a la Iglesia “una oportunidad más de hablar acerca de nuestro concepto de la reconciliación”.Ese enfoque ha de hacer un largo camino para crear un ambiente de “amor y apoyo mutuo incluso con personas con quienes discrepamos o a quienes pudiéramos temer”, afirmó Baker. Es también un medio en que las iglesias pueden, sugirió él, ayudar a sus miembros a adquirir hábitos espirituales para “ejercitar músculos que nos permitan vivir con menos temor y ejercitar músculos que nos ayuden a vivir con menos opiniones condenatorias”.Otra de esos hábitos, dijo Baker, es el llamado, basado en el evangelio, a orar por nuestros enemigos, “y no para que ellos cambien de ideas, sino para que tengan una vida sin sufrimientos y sin la causa del sufrimiento”, algo que recuerda la intención de algunas oraciones budistas. Todas esas prácticas se combinan para formar el modelo que las iglesias pueden presentarle al mundo como “la regla de oro de cómo vivimos los unos con los otros en comunidad” y como es la manera de responder a los “problemas más profundos” que han salido a la superficie en estas elecciones, dijo él.Los días siguientes al 8 de noviembre tienen la posibilidad de más estrés, aunque posiblemente diferente, dada la retórica preelectoral acerca de la legitimidad de las elecciones, parejo con el sentimiento de ganadores y perdedores, y el temor por el daño que se le haya podido causar al proceso democrático.La Iglesia necesita ofrecer oportunidades fuera de la liturgia tanto a la comunidad eclesiástica como al vecindario de una “conversación sincera y saludable”, dijo a ENS el Rdo. Bill Brosend, profesor de Nuevo Testamento y predicación en la Escuela de Teología de la Universidad del Sur.“Podemos darle a la gente la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre sus temores y su indignación y ver cuánto de ellos es genuino”, apuntó él. “Yo esperaría que todas las parroquias reservaran un tiempo especial antes y después de las elecciones y les dieran a las personas un lugar” para hablar acerca del estrés y para recordar que Dios cuida de ellas”.La intensidad de los sentimientos provocados por el ciclo electoral puede disiparse con el transcurso del tiempo pero “debemos ofrecer un seguimiento”, dijo Brosend. La necesidad de los cristianos de “llevar la fe al diálogo político de una manera intelectualmente estimulante” sigue estando presente.Rushing ofreció algunas tácticas postelectorales de carácter práctico. Inmediatamente después de las elecciones, dijo él, debe echarse un vistazo a cómo se votó en las áreas donde viven los miembros. Viendo cuántas personas votaron por cada candidato presidencial dará un indicio de las posibles divisiones entre aparentes ganadores y perdedores. “El hecho de que las personas votaran de manera diferente significa que tenían un punto de vista diferente, al menos, de su gobierno, para no hablar de la sociedad en que viven, y el sentimiento de que no estaban siendo oídos”, afirmó.Rushing añadió que la pregunta a formular inmediatamente después del 8 de noviembre es “¿Cómo uno avanza en una nación dividida cuando esas divisiones no se muestran inmediatamente ante tu puerta?”.Una manera es que las iglesias auspicien conversaciones con personas de todo el espectro político “en un espacio de cierto modo público y seguro”.“Invite a la gente; podrían venir y podrían no venir, pero inténtelo”, de manera que la gente sepa que la iglesia es un lugar al que puede venir, afirmó. Él reconoció que tales reuniones podrían resultar muy novedosas para la mayoría de las congregaciones.“No puedo imaginar otra ocasión en que sucediera algo como esto”, dijo Rushing. “Todo el mundo que quiera participar en la reconciliación en torno a este momento particular de nuestra historia tiene que saber que va a estar a la vanguardia”, afirmó él.Lea más sobre esto“Vote fielmente”.

Brive duo suspended for punch and kick vs London Irish

first_imgFriday Dec 18, 2009 Brive duo suspended for punch and kick vs London Irish This week we’ve had a few suspensions handed out following incidents from the Heineken Cup. Earlier it was revealed that Stade Francais’ Julien Dupuy got six months for his attack on Stephen Ferris. For Brive, two players were suspended following their tempered meeting with London Irish. Brive hooker Guillaume Ribes was red carded after he was pinged by the touch judge as having kicked and punched hooker Danie Coetzee as a scrum broke up. Replays showed that it was actually lock Arnaud Mela who connected with the big uppercut. Both players were suspended at disciplinary hearings though, with Ribes receiving four weeks for his apparent kick, and Mela got seven weeks as he clearly connected with Coetzees face. The kick by Ribes wasn’t shown on the match feed, but he received the ban nevertheless. Mela’s offence, punching/striking an opponent, was considered to be in the mid range, but two previous incidents were also taken into account when the decision was made. As you can see in this clip, the match continued with a lot of niggle, leading to frustrated hooker Coetzee, as well as his opposite number, both being yellow carded after a scuffle. On Saturday the two sides play eachother in their second leg, a match that Exiles coach Toby Booth is worried might boil over once again. “I can’t control how people approach a game,” Booth said. “For whatever the reasons, frustration and I understand these aspects Brive took the law into their own hands and transgressed beyond the call of duty, in my opinion. “Some of that stuff is potentially career-threatening and for me that is where the line stops. It is a tough game and people do things that are careless rather than malicious, but I can’t control people’s mindsets. I am concerned to read reports that Brive are going to come with a better team, put pride back in the jersey and that they stamped their feet in the changing room after the game. “That normally transpires into only one thing a pretty messy first 15 minutes. The only thing that you can hope that there is some self-control. I want plenty of passion, and everyone wants passion and aggression, it is part of it. But you also want some self-control and the referee has to be strong because he is the person that will dictate whether that can go on or not. “Last Saturday reminded me of something like Neath v Pontypridd in the 1970s at some points. It has been a long, long time that I have seen a scrum coming up and a second row sending one through into the hooker. All we can worry about is what we do and how we approach the game.

Horned Frogs hang on in overtime for first win against Baylor since 2002

first_imgReddIt Garrett Podell Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ Twitter Facebook printThe Horned Frog men’s basketball program continued its path into uncharted territory under head coach Jamie Dixon Tuesday, this time with its first win in Waco over rival Baylor since 2002, winning in overtime 81-78 to snap an 11-game losing streak against the Bears.“Welcome to the Big 12, every game is going to be like this, obviously we lost a one-pointer with a one-point lead and this time we had a 12-point lead, and they fought back and battled as you might expect,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “I’m proud of our guys and how they fought through it.”After losing a 12-point edge that the Horned Frogs built just over a minute into the game, it looked as though déjà vu from their one-point loss to Oklahoma was going to strike TCU once again.“We have to address how when we have 12-point, 13-point lead, and teams get more aggressive so we have to respond to it in a better way and finish it out,” Dixon said. “That’s a big thing we can take from it.”Baylor slowly chipped away at the TCU, as the Horned Frogs lead by eight at the break, 36-28. TCU shot 50 percent from the floor, including 4-of-9 on three-pointers in the first half, while the Bears couldn’t hit from distance in their first six attempts. The rebound edge was dead even at 16, but that was about to change.Lual-Acuil Jr. pounded TCU down low all night, scoring a game-high 28 points to go along with 11 rebounds.“He’s a tremendous player on the low-block, he’s hard to stop with the jump hook over the left shoulder,” TCU forward JD Miller said. “We just tried to maintain him.”His frontcourt partner Terry Maston added 20 points and nine rebounds. The Baylor tandem caused a number of Horned Frogs to suffer from foul trouble as Ahmed Hamdy fouled out with 11:03 left in regulation with Vladimir Brodziansky and JD Miller saddled with three and four fouls respectively.After Baylor evened up the contest at 64 with 17 seconds left to play, the Horned Frogs opted not to call a timeout and wound up with a Desmond Bane three-point attempt to beat the buzzer that bounced off the front of the rim following a Vladimir Brodziansky kick out of a double-team.TCU guard Desmond Bane attempts a three-pointer against Baylor. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“It’s a wide-open three by our best shooter, and I didn’t call a timeout because I didn’t want them to set up their defense, but you take a wide-open by your best shooter, we did what we needed to do,” Dixon said. “We got an inside touch, and sometimes they don’t go, but we don’t blame or question because we continue to do the right things.”Bane finished with 10 points against the Bears and had a career-high six assists as well as tying his career high in steals with three.Once overtime began, it was clear what the Horned Frog offensive approach was: pound the paint. Brodziansky scored nine of TCU’s 17 extra session points.JD Miller shoots a finger-roll at the rim against Baylor. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoBrodziansky led TCU in scoring with 18 points, and Miller had 13 points against Baylor.The Horned Frogs capped their first Big 12 victory with a Kouat Noi breakaway dunk that put TCU up five with 12 seconds to play.TCU forward Kouat Noi punctuates the Horned Frog victory over Baylor with 12 seconds left to play. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“That put the stamp on it right there, and we got the W in Waco, feels good,” TCU guard Kenrich Williams said. The victory was extra special for the Horned Frogs’ do-it-all guard who is a Waco native and attended high school at Waco University.“I can’t even explain the feeling, I’m just thanking the guys in the locker room because I haven’t beat Baylor and every time we come back here the previous three years we’re getting beat by 20 so to get this win like they did I appreciate it,” Williams said.Williams said he had roughly 25 family and friends at the game.A key factor in TCU’s road win was its work at the free throw line to close the game: The Horned Frogs shot 10-for-10 at the line in the final four minutes and overtime after starting 7-for-15.TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky shoots a free throw against Baylor. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoWhile the Horned Frogs lost the battle down low, getting out-rebounded by 11 (45-34) and out-scored in the paint by 14 (52-38), Dixon liked how his team took care of the ball,  losing the ball just 11 times to Baylor’s 14. TCU scored 15 points off the 14 Bear giveaways.“We have to finish a little better around the basket, but only 11 turnovers on the road in a 45-minute game,” Dixon said. “The biggest thing I like about this group is what we’ve done turnover-wise.”Up NextNo. 16 TCU’s next challenge is hosting No. 10 Kansas in Fort Worth. The Jayhawks have won the last 13 Big 12 regular season titles and will be looking to avenge their first Big 12 loss after a 12-point home defeat, 85-73, to Texas Tech.
