Thank you God! Nuevo plan para la revisión litúrgica y del libro de oraciónLa convención adoptó un plan para la revisión litúrgica y del libro de oración que allana el camino para la creación de nuevos textos litúrgicos que respondan a las necesidades de los episcopales a través de la Iglesia, al tiempo que continúa el uso del Libro de Oración Común de 1979.La Resolución A068  pedía originalmente el inicio de un proceso que conduciría a un libro de oración completamente revisado para 2030. Los obispos en cambio adoptaron un plan para “una revisión litúrgica y del libro de oración para el futuro de la misión de Dios a través de la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús”.La resolución enmendada de los obispos pide que éstos desarrollen comunidades de culto en sus diócesis para la experimentación y creación de textos litúrgicos alternativos que presentarán a un nuevo Equipo de Trabajo para la Revisión Litúrgica y del Libro de Oración que será nombrado por el Obispo Primado y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.Dice también que la revisión litúrgica utilizara un lenguaje e imaginería inclusivos y expansivos para [referirse] a la humanidad y la divinidad, e incorporará comprensión, apreció y cuidado por la creación de Dios.Entre tanto, la Convención General adoptó también una resolución que permite a todas las congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal usar versiones opcionales en lenguaje expansivo de tres plegarias eucarísticas del Rito II del Libro de Oración Común de 1979.La Resolución D078 proporciona lenguaje alternativo para la Plegaria [eucarística] A, B y D. Los cambios están disponibles para uso experimental hasta que concluya la próxima edición completa del Libro de Oración Común.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre la revisión litúrgica y del libro de oración puede encontrarse aquí. Aprobado un presupuesto de $134 millonesLa Convención adoptó un presupuesto de $133,8 millones para el 2019-2021  que refleja las prioridades del obispo primado de evangelización, reconciliación y justicia raciales y cuidado de la creación. Las prioridades se mencionan como los “tres pilares” de la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús.También continúa desarrollando lo que el obispo de Maine, Stephen Lane, vicepresidente del Comité Conjunto de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas, le dijo a la sesión conjunta que es “la base de nuestro ministerio permanente como Iglesia y nuestros compromisos con los demás, tanto dentro como fuera de nuestra Iglesia”. Además, incluye el sustento del “continuo compromiso de la Iglesia con el gobierno conciliar, y los servicios legales, financieros y de otra índole del Centro de la Iglesia [las oficinas denominacionales en Nueva York]”.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre el proceso presupuestario puede encontrarse aquí.

Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal, reunidos del 5 al 13 de julio en Austin, Texas, actuaron en un número récord de resoluciones sobre asuntos clave tales como inmigración, revisión del libro de oración,. Israel-Palestina y la readmisión de la Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba como una diócesis. La Convención también aprobó un presupuesto de $134 millones que refleja, para los próximos tres años, las prioridades del Obispo Primado en la evangelización, la reconciliación racial y el cuidado de la creación. Entre tanto, los procesos legislativos fueron supervisados por alados observadores del lugar, uno de los cuales adoptó una presencia en las redes sociales al aportarle a la Convención una serie constante de ocasiones plumíferas en medio de los debates, a menudo intensos y apasionados, sobre los importantes asuntos que se presentaron ante la Iglesia.Fuera de las cámaras legislativas, varios acontecimientos reunieron a diputados, obispos y visitantes a mezclarse, socializar, orar, adorar y abogar, en una ocasión con personas que daban público testimonio contra la violencia armada, y en otra frente a un centro de detención para condenar las acciones del gobierno de EE.UU. en su aplicación de las normas migratorias. Un culto de avivamiento en el Centro de Eventos Palmer de Austin, el 7 de julio, atrajo una multitud de más de 2.500 personas que escucharon el vehemente sermón del obispo primado Michael Curry sobre [el tema]“Dios es amor y da vida”.En su sermón de apertura el 5 de julio, Curry retó a los episcopales a abrazar “el Camino del amor: Prácticas para una vida centrada en Jesús” como una manera de ayudar a la Iglesia a entrar en una nueva era de crecimiento espiritual.

Convención General, desde una liturgia donde los obispos expresaron lamentos y confesión por el papel de la Iglesia en el acoso, la explotación y el abuso sexuales hasta la Resolución D087 que permite a los diputados llevar a bebés al pleno de la Cámara de Diputados para alimentarlos.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre los asuntos de justicia de género puede encontrarse aquí. Rector Albany, NY Rector Collierville, TN Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Belleville, IL Enfrentándose a las injusticias en el conflicto israelí-palestinoLa Convención General resumió su consideración de resoluciones en relación con el conflicto israelí-palestino con resultados desiguales debido en gran medida a la renuencia de la Cámara de Obispos de tomar muchas de las medidas audaces a que instara la Cámara de Diputados.De las 15 resoluciones presentadas sobre Israel-Palestina en la Convención General, sólo seis fueron aprobadas por ambas cámaras, aunque las resoluciones exitosas aun abordan la difícil situación de los niños palestinos, el estatus de Jerusalén, el uso desproporcionado de fuerza letal por ambas partes y las formas en que la Iglesia Episcopal puede presionar a favor de la paz mediante sus decisiones de inversión.Los obispos y diputados, aun aquellos que argüían por medidas más enérgicas contra las condiciones de ocupación de los territorios palestinos por Israel, se esforzaron en afirmar el derecho de Israel a existir y a defenderse, citando una política de larga data de la Iglesia hacia la región. Y si bien los obispos rechazaron la resolución más polémica, la D019, diciendo que equivalía a una peligrosa “desinversión” en Israel, sí se unieron a los diputados en aprobar la Resolución B016, que refleja la D019 en su uso de la frase “tamiz de inversiones a partir de derechos humanos”. Sin embargo, a diferencia de la D019, la Resolución B016 no incluye ningún calendario para las decisiones del Consejo Ejecutivo ni ninguna referencia a la complicidad de la Iglesia en la ocupación, si bien en definitiva podría dar lugar a que la Iglesia retirara dinero de las compañías que hacen negocios allí.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre los asuntos de Israel-Palestina puede encontrarse aquí.

La Resolución A054 de 2015 y la versión original de la B012 decían que los clérigos sólo podían usar los ritos bajo la dirección de su obispo.Requerir que si un obispo “sostiene una posición teológica que no acepta el matrimonio para parejas del mismo sexo”, él o ella pueda invitar a otro obispo, si fuere necesario, para ofrecer “apoyo pastoral” a cualquier pareja que desee usar los ritos, así como al miembro del clero y a la congregación interesados. En cualquier caso, debe pedírsele a un obispo de fuera que acepte solicitudes de nuevas nupcias si algún miembro de la pareja es divorciado, a fin de cumplir con el requisito canónico que se aplica a las parejas de sexos opuestos.Continuar el uso experimental de los ritos hasta que concluya la próxima revisión integral del Libro de Oración Común.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre la igualdad matrimonial puede encontrarse aquí. Rector Martinsville, VA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Decidiendo sobre la inmigraciónSi hubo un asunto que desafió cualquier expectativa de controversia en la 79ª. Convención General ese fue la inmigración.Obispos y delegados llegaron a Austin la semana pasada luego del escándalo nacional provocado por la política de “tolerancia cero” del gobierno de Trump hacia la inmigración, en particular la decisión de separar a niños de los padres detenidos. Y pese a que el gobierno revirtiera las separaciones de familias, las normas migratorias siguen siendo un tema candente, incluso en el estado fronterizo que servía de anfitrión a la reunión trienal de la Iglesia.Pero si el país continúa dividido respecto a qué hacer con la inmigración, los miles de episcopales aquí presentaron un frente unificado en apoyo a las familias que han sido separadas, de los que se enfrentan a la deportación y de los inmigrantes en general —a través de la oración , el testimonio, la acción y la aprobación expedita de una legislación.La Convención aprobó tres resoluciones sobre el tema de la inmigración:La Resolución C033 hace política oficial de la Iglesia respetar la dignidad de los inmigrantes y traza los lineamientos de cómo la política pública debe reflejar esa creencia; la A178 asume una posición enérgica contra la separación de las familias y el trato de padres y niños inmigrantes; y la C009, titulada “Convertirse en una Iglesia santuario”anima a los episcopales a acercarse y apoyar a los inmigrantes que enfrentan deportación, incluido el brindarles santuario físico si ellos así lo eligen.Uno de los momentos definitorios de esta Convención General fue la vigilia de oración que tuvo lugar el 8 de julio frente al  Centro de Detención Hutto, una instalación para la reclusión de inmigrantes [ilegales] a poco más de media hora a la salida de Austin. Una nutrida reunión de más de un millar de episcopales que oraron y cantaron en apoyo a padres inmigrantes y a sus hijos, que han sido separados.Toda la cobertura de ENS sobre los temas de inmigración puede encontrarse aquí. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Readmisión de CubaLa Convención aprobó admitir, o readmitir, a la Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba como una diócesis mediante la aprobación de la Resolución A238.

Criminal justice reform coalition takes case to lawmakers

first_img Across our nation there are private prisons…..I heard the stock went sky high for the private prisons when Trump was elected. Is it fake news or not, I don’t know?….. Are there private prisons being ran in Florida, or are they publicly operated only? Trump must have a plan in mind to keep the states prisons from filling up, somewhat to a small degree, because he wants people who are protesting, or what he calls rioting, to be charged as terrorists, and have serious felony convictions, and be housed at Gitmo……!!!! and we have heard what they do to those people in there! He wants to water board them, and torture them in worse ways….and I am talking about the American citizens!!!…..such a nice man! It is appalling, and also appalling is the fact that Florida population has tripled since 1970, but the Florida prison population has increased 1000% since that time…. OMG!!! How awful is that?

Focus on FloridaBy William Patrick  of Watchdog.org While Florida’s population has tripled since 1970, the state’s prison population has grown by 1,000 percent. A new coalition of groups is lobbying the legislature to do something about that discrepancy.The Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform launched on Monday, one day ahead of the state’s annual legislative session. In a statement, the group said it’s focusing on rolling back decades of failed “tough-on-crime” policies that have contributed to the explosion in the number of inmates.“Large prison populations are not an appropriate barometer for effective criminal justice,” said Christian Camara, Southeast regional director of the Washington, D.C.-based R Street Institute, a coalition member.“Instead, they are oftentimes a symptom of a broken system that imposes a huge burden on taxpayers.  Florida should focus on reducing recidivism by prioritizing criminal justice spending to help rehabilitate and restore offenders’ lives while reserving tough penalties against violent criminals,” Camara said.Florida’s state prison system houses nearly 100,000 inmates at a cost of $2.3 billion annually.Photo by: ShutterstockREFORM: A coalition of groups known as the Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform is launching an effort to lobby state lawmakers to approve about a dozen reform bills during Florida’s 60-day legislative session.About one out of every 104 Floridians is behind bars when including local jail populations, and one out of 54 residents is under some kind of supervision by the criminal justice system, the campaign says.“Florida’s antiquated laws put too many people behind bars for too long,” said Scott McCoy, senior policy counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center.Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, noted that criminal justice reform increasingly has become an area of bipartisan agreement.“Legislators should take notice when public interest organizations representing an extraordinarily broad ideological spectrum come together to urge long-overdue reforms in our criminal justice system,” Simon said.Simon singled out Florida’s use of mandatory minimum laws as a policy ripe for change.“Our state’s habit of imposing mandatory minimum sentences has loaded up our prisons in a way that threatens the safety of inmates as well as correction officers,” he said.The coalition is pushing a number of bills, many of which have been filed by Republicans – a good sign since the GOP dominates the Florida Legislature. The bills include:— Criminal Justice Task Force: The proposal would create a diverse group of public officials and stakeholders for the purpose of developing recommendations to overhaul the entire criminal justice system.— Direct File: Florida puts more juveniles into adult prisons than any other state in the country. A bill that would reduce the number of minors directly filed into adult courts will be considered by state lawmakers during the session, but has been met with early opposition.— Juvenile Civil Citations: Legislators will debate a measure to expand pre-arrest, youth diversion programs for those younger than 18 who commit common non-violent crimes, such as trespassing, and have no criminal history. Youth civil citations are not applied evenly throughout the state, even though studies have shown they lead to more favorable long-term outcomes than arrests.— Adult Civil Citations: Law enforcement officers could be given the discretion to issue civil citations to adults who commit non-violent, low-level misdemeanors rather than arresting them.— Elderly Release: Known as compassion release, older, sicker and non-threatening inmates over age 65 soon could participate in conditional early release programs.— Sentencing and Offense Parameters: Several bills could change how certain property crimes, driving-related offenses and possession of controlled substances violations would be charged. Another measure would allow judges to depart from mandatory minimum sentencing laws for certain non-violent crimes and drug possession offenses.Composed of more than a dozen organizations, the Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform also has launched a public education website offering more information about its legislative priorities.Campaign members, faith leaders, criminal justice experts, formerly incarcerated persons and law enforcement experts are scheduled to visit the Florida Capitol on Thursday to lobby lawmakers.

Proposals for the modernising of charity law have been a long time coming and are vital if charities are to play an active part in society. We are pleased that the Strategy Unit has made some far reaching and radical proposals and hope that the end result is a more effective, better resourced and better regulated charity and voluntary sector.“There is a long way to go but we will push for the legislation relating to charities and trading and support the proposal for the new Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Our members will certainly be interested in commenting on the detail of these proposals. Advertisement “We are delighted that the Government has recognised the problems of regulation and red tape and we welcome the Prime Ministers’ statement that “Excessive red tape is preventing the sector from fulfilling its potential”.“We will be looking for the balance between gaining public confidence and the need to reduce red tape. Appropriate regulation (including self regulation) helps maintain public confidence in charities.Our interest will be focussed on the financial management aspects of the report and we look forward to working with the Charity Commission on the next SORP with regards improved methods for apportioning costs and expenditure. We welcome the need for some clarification of the ethical investment strategies which trustees are permitted to follow under charity law.”Ms Scott referred to the CFDG’s document of June 2002, “Charity Management, the Way Ahead”, which encouraged charities to maintain and develop a climate of public trust and confidence through improved communications and through adherence to, and promotion of, good practice. It also contained the umbrella group’s proposals to the Strategy Unit.“We welcome the proposals to reform the Charity Commission. Our response to the original Strategy Unit consultation highlighted some concerns about the current structure of the Charity Commission. Indeed, the report backs many of our recommendations from our response to the original Strategy Unit consultation. The report also responds to many of our points in our ‘Agenda for the future’, published in June.“On the other recommendations CFDG will be consulting fully with our members to gain their full views. Our Public Affairs Committee and Policy Development Working Group will be meeting on 9th October to help develop our response. In addition, CFDG will be hosting members meetings in London andregionally to discuss the report and our response.”last_img read more

New role to promote philanthropy in N Ireland

first_img The Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) will soon appoint a development officer for Northern Ireland to help increase the level of independent funding for the voluntary sector.The primary role of the part-time post will be to encourage funders active in other parts of the UK to support the development of new philanthropy in Northern Ireland.While reporting to ACF in London, the development officer will also be advised by and work with a locally-based steering group called the Issue Based Network (IBN). The IBN is a network of funders who have been established in Northern Ireland for a number of years.ACF says the context for the new role is the progressive withdrawal of European funding, combined with budget cuts in the public sector meaning that many organisations in Northern Ireland are facing a tough and competitive funding environment.ACF is a membership association for foundations and grant-making charities in the UK. There are now over 300 independent foundations in its membership, giving more than £1 billion per year.It is hoped that ACF’s higher profile will also help identify those agencies interested in supporting the growth of new philanthropy in Northern Ireland.www.acf.org.uk Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Northern Ireland Howard Lake | 30 September 2010 | News New role to promote philanthropy in N Ireland About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Atlanta stands in solidarity with prisoners

first_imgAbout 60 people demonstrated in front of the Atlanta City Detention Center on Aug. 21 in solidarity with the nationwide prison strike called to begin that day and last until Sept. 9. They offered solace to people locked up in ACDC.Their voices projected by a large speaker pointing toward the cell doors, people recited poetry, played drums and called out to let the inmates know they had not been forgotten — which the severe isolation of prison can drive many to feel.Dark figures could be seen in the illuminated window slits from which prisoners peered out. Several inmates waved to the crowd outside, which waved back. The prisoners appeared relieved to have the monotony and pain of their seclusion broken up, but their captors wasted little time erecting barricades in front of the entrance.However, this had no effect on the demonstrators, who directed their attention to the slits of light in the cell doors seen going up the building.According to Kevin Caron, a local organizer for A World Without Police and Georgia Detention Watch at the rally: “ACDC was built in preparation for the ’96 Olympics and has always been used by the city to lock away those the ruling class deems undesirable. This includes poor, mostly Black folks who are homeless, as well as others who violate city ordinances for engaging in survival economies like sex work and the use or sale of illegal substances.”ACDC also holds immigrants for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — an arrangement that generates $78 per person each day for the city’s coffers.The rally was organized by the Atlanta Prison Strike Solidarity Committee, which includes Women on the Rise, Workers World Party, the Industrial Workers of the World, A World Without Police, Anarchist Black Cross and several community members. Other participating organizations included the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Street Groomers, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and Southerners On New Ground.Thanks in part to years of hard work by organizations such as Women on the Rise and Georgia Detention Watch, the city has been under pressure to shut down ACDC, which has seen a significant decrease in the number of detainees.The Atlanta Prison Strike Solidarity Committee is also planning other events for the duration of the strike to spread awareness of the prisoners’ struggle and encourage outside pressure in the form of boycotts and demonstrations.Shut down ACDC!

U.S. Offers List of Ag Concessions Wanted From China

first_img SHARE The U.S. apparently wants more from China than a promise to buy more U.S. agricultural goods. Politico reports that U.S. officials have handed China a list of agricultural trade barriers that “must be lifted” to boost imports from the U.S. to China in an effort to reduce the trade deficit. However, China has stated that it will not remove trade barriers as long as Trump imposes new U.S. tariffs, which could soon take effect. China said earlier this week that the outcome of the talks should be based on “meeting each other halfway.”China, meanwhile, has responded with targeting U.S. ag products with retaliatory tariffs, if warranted. The National Pork Producers Council said the trade war is already harming agriculture. Iowa State University Economist Dermot Hayes says U.S. pork farmers have lost $2.2 billion on an annualized basis from lower hog prices.
