La Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos

first_imgLa Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos Cientos de miles pueden convertirse en apátridas Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal News Service] Dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana pueden convertirse en apátridas luego que el tribunal constitucional de la República Dominicana declaró sin derecho a la ciudadanía a los hijos de inmigrantes haitianos nacidos en la República Dominicana.Debido a la sentencia del tribunal, cientos de miles de descendientes de inmigrantes, la mayoría provenientes de Haití, que nacieron en la República Dominicana, ya no serán reconocidos como ciudadanos, dijo Julio Holguín, obispo [episcopal] de la República Dominicana, en un correo electrónico a ENS el 25 de octubre.“Creo que el Tribunal Constitucional ha cometido un grave error con esa sentencia, ya que vulnera los derechos de por lo menos 4 generaciones de descendientes de inmigrantes, cuya mayoría vino a la República Dominicana, mediante acuerdo entre ambos gobiernos, dominicano y haitiano, para trabajar principalmente en el corte de la caña, para la industria azucarera” dijo el Obispo.La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana sirve a comunidades haitianas en sus parroquias y misiones de todo el país. La edición de Noviembre-Diciembre de Episcopax, el periódico de la diócesis, dedica un espacio importante a defender los derechos de los dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana.La República Dominicana, con una población de 10,2 millones de habitantes, y Haití, con una población de 9,8 millones, comparten la isla de La Española. La República Dominicana es ligeramente más grande, ya que ocupa el 64 por ciento de la mitad oriental de la isla. Durante décadas, los haitianos han trabajado en los campos de caña de la República Dominicana, como empleados domésticos y en otros empleos no especializados.El 23 de septiembre, el tribunal constitucional del país, en una sentencia de 11 a favor y 2 en contra, dictaminó que la cláusula relativa a los ciudadanos en la Constitución dominicana de 1929 no debía aplicarse a los hijos de padres que no eran “residentes legales” en el momento del nacimiento de sus hijos y, además, que a subsecuentes generaciones nacidas en suelo dominicano también debía negárseles la ciudadanía.Se calcula que unas 200.000 personas de padres haitianos viven en la República Dominicana. El 24 de octubre, el tribunal instruyó a las autoridades locales a “auditar todos los registros civiles de la nación hasta junio de 1929 para determinar quiénes ya no tienen derecho a la ciudadanía”, según un artículo publicado en The New York Times.Como Holguín explicó, la sentencia del tribunal invalida no sólo los certificados de nacimiento, sino que también cuestiona la validez de otras formas de identificación, incluidos los pasaportes, y podría inhibir la capacidad de matricular en una escuela o en la universidad, de abrir una cuenta bancaria, de comprar una casa, etc.“En otras palabras, el tribunal constitucional ha decidido establecer un ‘apartheid’ en la República Dominicana” afirmó él.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

E. Lucius “Andy” Anderson III as its fourth executive director effective in early September.  Anderson joins St. Mary’s Sewanee to continue building upon St. Mary’s Sewanee’s vision, expanding reach and facilities development that have marked its growth over the last decade.Andy AndersonAnderson most recently has served as the rector of the Church of the Nativity in Huntsville, Alabama, since 2003. Anderson brought stability and growth in ministries to the 1800-member parish, initially leading the parish through a long-range visioning process that resulted in master planning and a $4.2 million successful capital campaign to renovate the 1859 National Historic Landmark church and eliminate the parish’s debt to acquire adjacent property in downtown Huntsville. After physically “building the church,” Anderson spent his energy and leadership “building the church spiritually in formation, mission, and ministry,” embracing the Catechumenate for new member incorporation, RenewalWorks Spiritual Development Ministries of Forward Movement, and expanding the parish’s outreach efforts including establishing one of the South’s premier local grower’s and artisan markets, The Greene Street Market at Nativity. Nativity has a long tradition of supporting Centering Prayer, and Anderson is in the process of becoming a certified Centering Prayer workshop facilitator through contemplative outreach.Before his tenure at Nativity, Anderson served as rector of Grace Church in Anderson, S.C., where he led the parish through extensive strategic planning and a capital campaign to renovate and expand the historic church. Anderson initially served in ordained ministry at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, Georgia, as canon educator for children, youth and family ministries, embracing and leading a vision for ministry that saw tremendous growth.Dale Grimes, president of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s Sewanee, said, “The Board of Trustees is thrilled to welcome Andy as the new executive director of St. Mary’s Sewanee. Andy is absolutely the right person to take on these duties at this time. He brings to St. Mary’s Sewanee his extensive experience in spiritual development programming and activities, service to and leadership in the Episcopal Church, financial and administrative acumen and significant and proven fundraising ability. We are excited about the possibilities for our future with Andy as our executive director as we enter a new phase of growth in programming and campus development.”In recent years, St. Mary’s Sewanee has accomplished a number of goals in the plans envisioned by the board. The Anna House, completed four years ago as the Center’s newest lodging facility, has been fully brought on line, providing more hospitality options for its guests by allowing accommodation of larger groups as well as simultaneous use by multiple groups. The quality and number of its programs have increased, including a new relationship with the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation, which has commenced a four-part program, the Soul of Leadership, at St. Mary’s Sewanee. Many other programs offered by long-time St. Mary’s Sewanee presenters have been able to make use of the Center’s new and upgraded facilities on a year-round basis.Andy Anderson returns to the Mountain with the enthusiasm and skills to lead St. Mary’s Sewanee forward in this ongoing expansion of facilities and programs. “I first experienced St. Mary’s as a thin holy place of spiritual connection to God on an Advent Quiet Day my first year at the School of Theology in 1991. I returned to St. Mary’s many times during seminary years to know the quiet and refreshment from the beauty of holiness St. Mary’s offers,” Anderson remarks.  “After beginning a Centering Prayer practice in the late 1990s, I began attending retreats and other events at St. Mary’s. It’s a part of my spiritual DNA and has continued to enrich and enliven my life and ministry. I have been nurtured by St. Mary’s mission and its heart of prayerfulness and it will be a privilege to give back to this sacred and beautiful place that has given so much to me and to others. I am excited to continue my journey in the capacity as Executive Director and look forward to the great work of building upon what John Runkle and the fine staff and St. Mary’s Board have launched. I believe in our mission, having served with fundraising efforts to help get us where we are today. I look forward to leading the efforts to allow others to be a part of contributing to St. Mary’s mission with their time, talent, and financial resources.”A native of Statesboro, Georgia, Anderson holds a Doctor of Ministry and a Master of Divinity honoris causa from The School of Theology at Sewanee, a Master of Business Administration in finance from Georgia State University, and a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Georgia. Prior to ordination in 1994, Anderson had a successful career in corporate banking with the SunTrust Banks.  He has served the wider church and Sewanee in many capacities and looks forward to strengthening St. Mary’s connections to the wider church as well as in interfaith collaborations.  He and his wife Tippy (the former Tippen Harvey of Rome, Georgia)  have been married for almost 36 years and have two adult children, Case and Sally, who like Andy and Tippy, consider Sewanee home.

A total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States on Aug. 21, 2017. Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Dixie Nelson, parish administrator at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Alliance, Nebraska, was working at a motel several years ago when she got a call from a professor in California. He was planning to be in town on Aug. 21, 2017, and wanted to book some rooms – all the rooms.It was Nelson’s first taste of solar eclipse fever, which has since swept up her town and many more along the path of the coming total solar eclipse on Aug. 21. Episcopal churches along that path, from Oregon to South Carolina, are throwing out the welcome mat to eclipse-watching tourists this month, turning churchyards into campgrounds, hosting viewing parties and inviting the public to contemplate the mysteries of God’s creation.“God made the universe. This is one of his spectacular shows,” Nelson told Episcopal News Service by phone this week.She has been busy making arrangements for a makeshift campground at St. Matthew’s. By Aug. 21, the church property will accommodate campers at 30 RV sites and 26 tent sites. The congregation hopes to raise about $4,000 by collecting a suggested donation of $25 per night from some of the thousands of visitors expected to descend on this small city in Nebraska’s Panhandle.An even bigger celebration is expected in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, which is said to be near the point of greatest eclipse. Astronomers describe that as the point where the moon’s shadow will take its most direct aim at the Earth during the total eclipse. With that the distinction, Hopkinsville is marketing itself “Eclipseville.”“The community’s been talking about it for years and getting ready,” said the Rev. Alice Nichols, rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Hopkinsville.Nichols said she has heard estimates that more than 100,000 visitors may converge in Hopkinsville on Aug. 21, which would quadruple the city’s non-eclipse population of about 32,000. She has contacted Episcopal churches across Kentucky inviting parishioners to come to Grace Episcopal to view the eclipse. Grace Episcopal isn’t offering camping, but visitors can pay $30 per adult and $15 per child to reserve one of 75 parking spots and join the church viewing party, with proceeds benefiting the church’s Graceworks ministry.Grace Episcopal also will offer its guests a boxed lunch before the total eclipse begins at 1:24 p.m. Eye protection is included as well. Nichols stocked up with 300 certified sunglasses, a must for anyone wishing to view the eclipse.“I hope that it starts people asking questions,” Nichols said in a phone interview with ENS. “I hope that it will kind of bring attention to the fact that religion and science are not at odds with each other.”Solar eclipses are not unusual. Partial solar eclipses can occur several times in a year, as they will in 2018. In a partial eclipse, the moon passes in front of the sun but does not block it altogether. A total solar eclipse is rarer, occurring only when the moon passes fully in front of the sun, darkening part of the Earth and creating a thin, shimmering corona around the edges of the moon.Nowhere in the world will experience a total solar eclipse again until July 2019, when South America will get its turn in the shadow. The eclipse this month is generating additional excitement in the U.S. because it is the rare total solar eclipse that will only be experienced in this country, and from coast to coast.Peak eclipse, known as totality, will only occur on a narrow swath of the country and will last less than three minutes. The longest duration of totality will occur near Carbondale, Illinois, making that another top destination for eclipse watchers. St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Carbondale is holding a cosmic-themed hymn sing the evening before the eclipse, and the church is raffling an eclipse quilt.Over in the Diocese of Oregon, campers are invited to pay $250 for the privilege of staying in the path of totality in Silverton, home of St. Edward’s Episcopal Church. Included in that price is space enough for an RV up to 30 feet, two pairs of sunglasses and access to St. Edward’s labyrinth.The real reward, though, is viewing “the most beautiful thing you can see in the sky,” as one astronomer described the corona to NPR.Not able to travel on Aug. 21? A partial eclipse will be visible across all of North America. If you’re in Spokane, Washington, the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection invites you to their viewing party starting at 10 a.m. If you’re in Lexington, South Carolina, the Episcopal Church Women of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church want you to join them starting at noon.Those two churches are both in the zone where it will be possible to see an eclipse of more than 90 percent – weather permitting, of course.“I’m afraid to look at the forecast,” said Nichols, the rector in Hopkinsville.Being at the point of greatest eclipse won’t mean as much if the skies are cloudy. Even then, Nichols said she would count on “a really interesting experience” of passing through the moon’s shadow. If the skies are clear, it will be “an amazing experience.”Fair weather odds is one of the selling points for Nebraska, where Alliance is promoting itself as offering better than an 80 percent chance of clear skies on Aug. 21.“Alliance won the geographical lottery,” Nelson said, adding the city’s popularity as an eclipse destination has been bolstered by the nearby outdoor art installation Carhenge. (Think Stonehenge, but made out of old cars.)As parish administrator, Nelson, 63, typically spends most of her time producing St. Matthew’s newsletter, helping church committees, updating Facebook and taking care of other church business. Lately, eclipse planning has taken over her days, as the congregation prepares its 56 campsites.The church took reservations for minimum three-night stays, so the excitement will stretch across the weekend that leads up to the eclipse, which falls on a Monday. The St. Matthew’s outreach committee will serve breakfast to campers that Sunday and Monday, and a cookout is planned for Sunday evening.The city began stepping up its preparations about six months ago, Nelson said. Hotels are all booked, eclipse-related events are scheduled over the weekend and Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is expected to make an appearance. Many of her neighbors underestimated at first what the eclipse would mean for Alliance, but they’re now bracing for a big turnout.“It’s going to be huge,” she said. “It took them a while to wrap their minds around it.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

RIP: The Rt. Rev. David Richards, whose work led to…

first_img Posted Sep 24, 2018 Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Bath, NC [Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. David E. Richards, a longtime Episcopal bishop who died last month, is being remembered fondly by those who served with him across the church, from Central America to the Diocese of Albany to the College of Bishops, which now bears his name.Bishop David E. RichardsRichards, 97, died Aug. 21 at his home in Coral Gables, Florida. His funeral was Aug. 25 at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Coral Gables.Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 1921, Richards graduated from General Theological Seminary in 1945 and was ordained a priest in Panama. He was consecrated Albany’s suffragan bishop in 1951, and six years later he was elected bishop of Central America, where he provided leadership on a range of matters, including indigenous ministries.A history of the church in Central America notes that Richards was the first bishop of the Missionary District of the Episcopal Church in Central America, which was created in 1957 when the Church of England transferred jurisdiction of chaplaincies in Guatemala, Honduras and Salvador to the Episcopal Church. Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica made up the new missionary district; Richards lived in Costa Rica.From 1968 until his retirement in 1988, Richards served as national coordinator of the House of Bishops’ Office of Pastoral Development and based his operations in Florida. The “bishop to bishop” mentoring program he created in the 1970s led to the formation of the College for Bishops in 1993 at General Theological Seminary, according to an online history.Richards also was remembered for his work training Anglican bishops throughout Africa, the Rev. Michael Sahdev, assistant rector at St. Phillip’s, said in a tribute Aug. 24 on Facebook.“Personally, it was a blessing to know Bishop Richards in my first year as a priest,” Sahdev said. “As his health declined things got harder, but he always offered prayers for me & the world. This past Thursday we made our confession and absolved one another. His gift of mentoring priests never left.”Richards is survived by his wife, Helen Richards. In 2013, the College for Bishops was renamed The Rt. Rev. David E. & Helen R. Richards College for Bishops, “in recognition of the fact the Richards’ ministry was a team operation,” said Bishop Clay Matthews, the Office of Pastoral Development director at the time.At the time of his death, Richards was senior bishop of the Episcopal Church by order of consecration, according to the Diocese of Southeast Florida.“May Bishop David rest in peace and rise in glory,” the diocese said in announcing his death.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte] Dos obispos de otras iglesias, la Iglesia de Inglaterra y la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana, ayudaron a la Cámara de Obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal a expandir su visión del Camino del Amor el 13 de marzo.Durante su reunión de cuatro días aquí, los obispos están centrando la labor de cada día en un tema acerca del Camino del Amor, tales como Participar en el Camino del Amor, Gestión de recursos para el Camino del Amor e Integración en el Camino del Amor. El tema del 13 de marzo fue Profundizar en el Camino del Amor.La obispa Vashti Murphy McKenzie de la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana,  la primera mujer que preside esa denominación, y el obispo Ric Thorpe de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, un fundador de iglesias que es ahora el obispo de Islington, se dirigieron ambos a la Cámara de Obispos.El obispo primado Michael Curry fijó el tema de la reunión el 12 de marzo, al decir que el Camino del Amor es un retorno a las raíces del cristianismo. “No hicimos nada nuevo”, dijo. “Retornamos al cofre del tesoro”.“La Iglesia en su mejor expresión es la que hace todo lo posible como Iglesia” y debe ser “más profética que programática”, le dijo a la Cámara de Obispos el 13 de marzo la obispa Vashti Murphy McKenzie  de la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.McKenzie, que ha conocido a Curry desde su época en la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James’ Episcopal Church] en Baltimore, le dijo a la Cámara que el Camino del Amor es “un mensaje que repercutirá entre la gente lastimada en un mundo muy descontento”. Ella instó a los obispos a esforzarse a incorporar el Camino del Amor a sus propias vidas “, porque, saben qué, si no lo consiguen aquí, será muy difícil para ustedes traducirlo fuera de este salón”.Tanto la cultura como el contexto de la Iglesia han cambiado en el siglo XXI, afirmó ella, y lo que funcionó en el pasado, ahora no funciona; sin embargo, demasiadas iglesias simplemente hacen las mismas cosas viejas, tal vez con diferentes nombres, y esperan que les den diferentes resultados . La Iglesia, dijo McKenzie, tiene que ser “más profética que programática” y no debe contentarse con “presidir el desgaste”.El atraer “siervos al canal profético” no ocurrirá si “si estamos más enamorados de la Iglesia que de Jesucristo”, afirmó. No ocurrirá mediante campañas de mercadotecnia, nuevas tecnologías, redes sociales “vuestra liturgia del evangelio hip-hop, los edificios, los programas y la exclusividad”.“Eso sólo será posible por el poder y la presencia del Espíritu Santo”, afirmó McKenzie.A la Iglesia debe “recordársele que la Iglesia en su mejor expresión es la que hace todo lo posible como Iglesia. Es una Iglesia que está abierta a las nuevas directrices del Espíritu Santo. Está abierta a las posibilidades del futuro. No se conforma con ser bastante buena, sino que se pregunta constantemente ‘¿es posible [hacerlo] mejor?’En ocasiones, es una Iglesia donde las prioridades bíblicas se elijen por encima de métodos y tradiciones”, apuntó.La esencia de la fundación de iglesias consiste en hacer discípulos y enseñarles a hacer discípulos de otros, dice a la Cámara de Obispos Ric Thorpe, obispo de Islington, de la Iglesia de Inglaterra. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Thorpe, de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, les contó a los obispos la historia de su experiencia de conversión, que le llevó a ser evangelista y fundador de iglesias. Como obispo de Islington, el apoya el objetivo de la Diócesis de Londres de crear 100 nuevas comunidades de culto dentro de la diócesis para 2010.El clero y todos los líderes de la Iglesia deben arrepentirse, diciendo “hemos perdido nuestro camino, hemos perdido nuestra pasión por el Evangelio”, dio Thorpe. Deben reconocerle a Jesús que “hemos ensayado montones de cosas y sencillamente no funcionan y necesitamos hacer algo distinto”.Los fundadores de iglesias y los que esperan revitalizar las iglesias existentes deben honrar el pasado, pilotar el cambio en el presente y mirar al futuro, todo ello mientras les damos cabida a ideas innovadoras acerca de cómo ser la Iglesia en sus contextos. “Necesitamos alentarnos mutuamente a pensar de manera distinta” y a correr riesgos, afirmó Thorpe, “incluso si uno no sabe lo que va a ser el resultado”.Respecto al riesgo, los evangelistas no deben aferrarse a sus tradiciones y estar dispuestos a “quemarse, no simplemente a estar cómodos”, aseveró.La esencia de la fundación de iglesias, dijo Thorpe, consiste en hacer discípulos. Si Dios es amor y las personas son creadas a imagen de Dios, luego las personas deben amar a Dios y amar a su prójimo, en parte compartiendo la noticia de las amorosas intenciones de Dios. Los nuevos discípulos también deben ser alentados a hacer más discípulos y darles las herramientas para que lo hagan, añadió Thorpe.Las denominaciones deben fijarse en aquellos a los que la Iglesia no llega y luego crear una estrategia acerca de cómo conectarse con esas personas. “La encarnación consiste en ir donde está la gente, en lugar de esperar a que la gente venga a uno”, afirmó.“Es entonces cuando se logra un cambio de cultura”en una denominación, siguió diciendo Thorpe. La amplia adopción de los principios del Camino del Amor, y llegar a convertirlo en la manera en que la Iglesia funciona, añadió, podría significar un cambio importante en la cultura de la Iglesia Episcopal.La Iglesia Episcopal necesita comprometerse verdaderamente con la evangelización, en lugar de pelearse por sexo, dinero y poder, dijo el obispo de Honduras Lloyd Allen durante su sermón el 13 de marzo en la capilla de Kanuga. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Durante una mesa redonda con McKenzie y Thorpe, Curry dijo que le preocupa el peligro de evangelistas que invitan a las personas a entablar una relación abstracta con Jesús, en lugar de una relación con el Jesús del Evangelio, cuyo ejemplo los cristianos están llamados a emular en sus vidas.El seguir a un “Jesús abstracto”, dijo Curry, puede “confundirse fácilmente con las nociones culturales de Jesús, que no es de lo que estoy hablando”.Curry dijo que las conversaciones acerca de la decadencia de la Iglesia a veces le producen un nudo en el estómago. Añadió que él se ha dado cuenta de que “en algún momento en mi carrera, el objetivo de mi ministerio era aumentar el número de personas en la iglesia, aumentar los dólares en la iglesia y hacer cosas que modelan el éxito en toda las otras empresas de la vida y reproducirlas en la Iglesia”.El Obispo Primado dijo que está empeñado en hacer un “cambio interno de paradigma”.“Creo que si alguna vez llego al punto donde el objetivo de mi ministerio sea ayudar a tantas personas como pueda a alcanzar esa verdadera relación amorosa, liberadora y vivificadora con Dios que conocemos a través de Jesucristo, si esa es mi meta, luego  realmente, la disminución de las cifras de la Iglesia no importa porque la disminución de las cifras de la Iglesia puede que no indique una disminución en el número de personas que sigue a Jesús”.También en la agenda de la reuniónLa Cámara de Obispos se reúne del 12 al 15 de marzo en el Centro de Conferencias y Retiro de Kanuga, en las afueras de Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte.Esta es la reunión anual del grupo en primavera. Los obispos normalmente se reúnen en primavera y en otoño en los años en que no hay Convención General.El 14 de marzo, los obispos deben debatir la Conferencia de Lambeth 2020, incluida la decisión del arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby de no invitar a la reunión a cónyuges del mismo sexo de los obispos.[Los obispos] concluirán su tiempo en Kanuga con una reunión de trabajo en la tarde del 15 de marzo.Otra cobertura de ENS puede encontrarse aquí.– La Rda.
