That’s what the Anglican Communion is, and that Communion continues and moves forward.”President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings told ENS that the primates of the Anglican Communion sometimes have difficult relationships with one another, and described the news emerging from the meeting as sobering. “But while the primates work on restoring their relationships, Anglicans across the world will continue working together to feed the hungry, care for the sick, educate children, and heal the world,” she said. “Nothing that happens at a Primates Meeting will change our love for one another and our commitment to serving God together.”Jennings, who represents the Episcopal Church as the clergy member of the Anglican Consultative Council, the Anglican Communion’s main policy-making body, said that the people who are most likely to suffer from the news emerging from the meeting “are faithful LGBTI Anglicans and their allies, especially in Africa. I count many of them as my friends and colleagues, and today I am especially praying that this new expression of religious homophobia does not make them even more vulnerable to violence and discrimination than they already are.”Jennings sent a letter Jan. 15 to the House of Deputies about the primates’ action.In their statement, the primates asked that the Episcopal Church, for a period of three years, “no longer represent us on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and that while participating in the internal bodies of the Anglican Communion, they will not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or polity.”Expressing their unanimous desire to walk together, the primates said that their call comes in response to the decision by the Episcopal Church’s General Convention last June to change canonical language that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman (Resolution A036) and authorize two new marriage rites with language allowing them to be used by same-sex or opposite-sex couples (Resolution A054).This is not the first time that the ban from serving on ecumenical and interfaith bodies has been imposed on the Episcopal Church. In 2010, the Rev. Kenneth Kearon, then the secretary general of the Anglican Communion, told Episcopalians serving on the communion’s ecumenical dialogues that their memberships were discontinued.Kearon’s move came after then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams proposed that people serving on ecumenical dialogues should resign their membership if they are from a province that has not complied with the communion’s moratoria on same-gender blessings, cross-border interventions and the ordination of gay and lesbian people to the episcopate. He specifically referred to the earlier consecration of Mary Douglas Glasspool as a bishop suffragan in Los Angeles and the unauthorized incursions by Anglican leaders into other provinces. Glasspool is the Episcopal Church’s second openly gay, partnered bishop.The decision affected five Episcopal Church members then serving on Anglican dialogues with the Lutheran, Methodist, Old Catholic and Orthodox churches, as well as one member of the Inter-Anglican Standing Committee on Unity, Faith and Order (IASCUFO), who had been invited to serve as a consultant. No mention was made at the time of representatives from other provinces — such as Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda – that had been involved in cross-border interventions in the United States.The ban was lifted in 2012 by then-IASCUFO chairman Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi of the Anglican Church of Burundi.Since her reinstatement, the Rev. Katherine Grieb has continued to be a member of IASCUFO. It is not clear what the new sanctions mean for her membership. In addition, it appears that the Episcopal Church’s only other member currently serving on a Communion ecumenical body is the Rev. Amy E. Richter, who is listed as serving on the recently reconstituted Anglican-Reformed Dialogue.The Communion’s ecumenical dialogues are described here and its interfaith dialogues are explained here.In an interview with ENS, Curry said that while the primates’ decision may be disappointing for many Episcopalians, particularly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members, “it means that we have more work of love to do, and that work of love is helping our story and the story of many faithful Christians … to be told and heard, and it really may be part of our vocation in the world to bear witness to that, and it’s a loving witness.”Bishop Ian Douglas of the Diocese of Connecticut told ENS that the “real unity of the Anglican Communion is embodied in our connection and common action as together we serve God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation in Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.”Douglas represents the Episcopal Church as the bishop member of the Anglican Consultative Council. He also serves as a member of the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion.“Relationships in Christ fostered by building schools and medical clinics together, visits through companion dioceses, missionaries sharing their lives in service, bind us together in deep and profound ways,” he said.“I appreciate and honor how the structures of the Anglican Communion such as the ACC, the Lambeth Conference, and the Primates Meeting provide important venues for conversation, prayer and discernment among the provinces of the Anglican Communion. But the real ‘instruments of unity’ are the countless ways that parishes, dioceses and individual Christians in the Anglican Communion connect across our differences.”Rosalie Simmons Ballentine, the Episcopal Church’s lay representative to the ACC, told ENS that she “read the primates’ statement with a great deal of sadness.”“There are so many issues confronting the church and the world that need us to respond; so many issues on which we can agree or find common ground, that it’s painful to see us ripping ourselves apart on the issue of human sexuality.  If we are about walking together, and if we are about reconciliation as the body of Christ, then we all must be at the table; together. We are the church. If we can’t stay together and love each other, despite our diversity and our differences, what do we have to say to the rest of the world?”Curry, in the ENS interview, said that the call from the primates is now a question for the ACC to consider “because that’s the one constitutional body we have in the Communion, so the ACC will have to adjudicate what the primates say about themselves, whether or not they concur with that.”The ACC will gather April 8-20 in Lusaka, Zambia in a previously scheduled meeting.Curry told ENS that the primates did not discuss what would happen at the end of the three-year time period they set for the sanctions.The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria that has educated countless leaders for service throughout the Anglican Communion, told ENS that he believes the Episcopal Church “is learning how to live with disagreement and my prayer is that the Communion does so as well. The Episcopal Church has consistently sought to serve the other provinces in the Communion. Our partnerships with sister seminaries in the Sudan, Tanzania, and elsewhere have never been conditional on agreement. Where there is a need, we seek to serve.”Markham said that such work would continue regardless of the outcome of the Primates Meeting. “At the level of congregations, dioceses, and seminaries, the continuing work of celebrating the gift of a worldwide communion that loves the Lord Jesus will continue,” he said. “The Episcopal Church needs the rich vibrancy of the global south Anglicans. It enhances our understanding of Anglicanism and Christianity.“It is true that those of us who support the full inclusion of our LGBT brothers and sisters do take comfort from history. From the deep clash over the critical study of Scripture with Colenso, the Communion has always been a forum for discernment and struggle. It is continuing to play that role. And most issues do look different twenty or thirty years from now. Meanwhile the obligation of the Episcopal church is to maintain good relationships, stress that which we share, focus on Jesus, and seek to advance The conversation. Throughout this controversy, we have never closed the door (or even threatened to do), we always want to do our part to support the Communion in whatever ways this can be possible.”A series of articles posted on a Primates 2016 blog have focused on stories of mission, the fruits of countless relationships, partnerships and networks that exist throughout the Anglican Communion’s 38 autonomous provinces in 165 countries. For many, that is what exemplifies the true Anglican Communion, one with a missiological focus on serving those in need rather than wrapped up in the divisive issues that have dominated much of the agenda in Canterbury this week.“In the Episcopal Church in Connecticut we are blessed with dozens of parish-based partnerships in God’s mission around the world from Kenya to Nigeria, from Haiti to Ecuador,” said Douglas. “For example, Trinity Church in Tarriffville has had a profound and lasting relationship with the Anglican Diocese of Kaduna in northern Nigeria through the ministry of Kateri Medical Clinic. Each year a team of medical professionals and non-medical volunteers travels from Connecticut to Nigeria to work alongside Nigerian volunteers providing free medical care to rural people at the Kateri Clinic. Since 2002, over 120,000 people, Christian and Muslim alike, have been served by this partnership in Christ.  The Kateri Medical Clinic is a living testimony that Anglicans working together in God’s mission is the heart of our communion in Christ.”In his video statement, Curry acknowledged the “heartache and pain” that many will feel by the primates’ statement, but said it’s important to remember that the Episcopal Church is still very much a vital part of the Anglican Communion.“We are the Episcopal Church, and we are part of the Jesus Movement, and that Movement goes on, and our work goes on,” he said. “And the truth is, it may be part of our vocation to help the Communion and to help many others to grow in a direction where we can realize and live the love that God has for all of us, and we can one day be a Church and a Communion where all of God’s children are fully welcomed, where this is truly a house of prayer for all people. And maybe it’s a part of our vocation to help that to happen. And so we must claim that high calling; claim the high calling of love and faith; love even for those with whom we disagree, and then continue, and that we will do, and we will do it together.“We are part of the Jesus Movement, and the cause of God’s love in this world can never stop and will never be defeated. God love you. God bless you. And you keep the faith. And we move forward.”— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.

Barbarians team to face Springboks features hungry South Africans

first_imgThursday Nov 3, 2016 Barbarians team to face Springboks features hungry South Africans The Barbarians have named a formidable side to take on the Springboks at Wembley this coming weekend. The team features plenty of experience in the form of All Black Andy Ellis, and explosive talent such as Wallaby Taqele Naiyaravoro. The matchday squad features seven capped internationals, and New Zealand 2011 Rugby World Cup winner Ellis captaining the side. [Get Match Tickets here now]The Barbarians are taking on South Africa for the eighth time since 1952 and lead the series 4-3 after victories in 2007 and 2010.The famous invitation side won 26-20 six years ago when tries from Australia’s Drew Mitchell (2), James O’Connor and Italy’s Quintin Geldenhuys secured victory.Ellis appeared in that game and understands the unique way the Barbarians combine talent from around the globe in the space of a few days before taking on established international teams.“It was a pretty special moment beating South Africa last time,” said Ellis. “It’s a beautiful thing. You make friendships. I’m still in touch with the guys I played with in 2010.“This new team has come together, we’re getting on well and we’re having fun and now it’s just about fronting up and making sure we perform at the weekend. We understand how proud the Barbarians are and we’ve got a real job to do here.”There are four South African-born players that will take on their fellow countrymen, with young Stormers fly half Robert du Preez, Lions hooker Akker van der Merwe, Hurricanes prop Reggie Goodes and Lions lock Martin Muller all starting, while Lions flanker Ruan Ackermann is on the bench.Du Preez’s father – also named Robert – won seven caps in the 1990s for South Africa and his son broke into the Stormers Super Rugby side this year. He will get the chance to measure himself against Pat Lambie, who will captain South Africa and actually plays with his brothers, Jean-Luc and Dan, at the Sharks.“The guys want to play for themselves, for the club, for their families – all sorts of different motivations but we’re in a pretty good place,” added Ellis. “Boks taking on the Boks helps. They’ll certainly want to prove themselves.”After facing South Africa, the Barbarians travel to play the Czech Republic in Prague (November 8) and then take on Fiji in Belfast (November 11).TICKETS: Tickets are available for 2 for 1 special via ticketmaster.

Limerick students encouraged to ‘get a life in tourism’

first_imgFacebook WhatsApp Email NewsLimerick students encouraged to ‘get a life in tourism’By Staff Reporter – December 6, 2015 670 Twitter Advertisementcenter_img Linkedin Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK hoteliers are encouraging students to consider a career in tourism as part of a national campaign run by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF).Targeting students aged between 15 and 18 years, the ‘Get a Life in Tourism’ initiative aims to highlight the wide variety of career opportunities and educational courses available across the tourism and hospitality sector. Limerick’s tourism and hospitality industry continues to act as a strong engine for economic growth and job creation, supporting 7,000 jobs and contributing an estimated €180 million a year to the local economy.Shannon IHF Branch Chairwoman Elaina Fitzgerald-Keane said that hotel and hospitality was one of the region’s most successful industries and much of this success depended on its ability to make visitors feel welcome.“We want to attract young, enthusiastic people who aspire to having an interesting, people-focused career. We’re encouraging students to explore the many options available, including hundreds of specialist third-level courses throughout the country for those interested in pursuing recognised qualifications. It is a thriving industry offering excellent career prospects, swift promotional opportunities and a life less ordinary where you get to meet and work with great people”, she said.Confidence among hoteliers is steadily improving and this is supported by a number of factors including the retention of the 9 per cent VAT rate. As a result of this measure, 64 per cent of hotels and guesthouses have increased staffing levels over the last year while 55 per cent plan to take on further staff during the next 12 months.As part of the campaign, the IHF is publishing a free print and digital Get a Life in Tourism magazine supported by Fáilte Ireland which will be distributed to over 700 second-level schools throughout the country.See more on www.getalifeintourism.ie.
