Gay Clark Jennings, que acaba de terminar un período de seis años en el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, anunció el 5 de junio que se postula para presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.Jennings dijo en un mensaje en Facebook que tomó esa decisión “luego de haber orado mucho y de muchas conversaciones con episcopales de toda la Iglesia”.“Pido vuestro apoyo, ideas, participación y oraciones”, dijo ella, pidiéndoles a las personas que se le unieran en la página “para que podamos intercambiar ideas e interrogantes sobre la obra que Dios nos llama a realizar”.Jennings anunció también sus intenciones a través de una carta dirigida a los miembros de la Cámara de Obispos y a la lista de correos electrónicos de los diputados.“Me gustaría trabajar con ustedes y con otros líderes para cambiar nuestra manera de funcionar en el próximo trienio”, dice en la carta. “Para que la Iglesia Episcopal tenga importancia en el siglo XXI, tenemos que encontrar medios de avanzar juntos. Creo que Dios nos llama a abrazar un futuro sin más falsas opciones entre misión y gobierno. Sin falsas guerras entre individuos o grupos. Sin más forcejeo por autoridad o control”.Jennings dijo que, más que pedir el apoyo de los diputados, ella “esperaba que todos ustedes invertirán y participarán en la edificación de asociaciones colaborativas e interconectadas para la obra que Dios nos ha llamado a realizar en esta Convención General y en el próximo trienio”.Si resulta electa, Jennings prestaría servicios desde el fin de la reunión de la Convención General en Indianápolis, Indiana, del 5 al 12 de julio, hasta el final de la próxima reunión de la Convención General a celebrarse en Salt Lake City, Utah, en julio de 2015. Ella sucedería a Bonnie Anderson, que ha sido presidente de la Cámara de Diputados durante dos períodos de tres años.Anderson anunció el 23 de mayo que no le pediría a la Convención que la eligiera para un tercer y último período como presidente [de la Cámara de Diputados].La Cámara de Diputados aceptará nominaciones para la presidencia durante la próxima reunión de la Convención el 8 de julio, y la elección para el 32º. Presidente de la cámara tendrá lugar al día siguiente.El 10 de julio, la cámara recibirá nominaciones para vicepresidente, según información que puede encontrarse aquí. Ese cargo ha estado vacante desde el 15 de febrero de 2010, cuando Brian Prior, que era el vicepresidente, fue ordenado obispo.El vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados debe ser de un orden diferente al del presidente.La Cámara de Diputados incluye hasta ocho miembros con derecho a voto de cada una de las 109 diócesis de la Iglesia, una zona de misión y una convocación. La Convención General es uno de los cuerpos legislativos más grandes del mundo.El [o la] presidente de la Cámara de Diputados sirve como vicepresidente del Consejo Ejecutivo y de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera [DFMS, por su sigla en inglés] (la entidad corporativa de la Iglesia Episcopal). El [o la] presidente encabeza la Cámara de Diputados en la Convención General, nombra clérigos y miembros laicos de todas las comisiones permanentes y comités legislativos de la Convención, y realiza muchas funciones de enlace, desarrollo y oportunidades entre convenciones.El cargo no tiene salario, pero en el trienio 2010-2012 la Convención General aprobó un presupuesto (vea aquí el renglón 140-145) de alrededor de $589.000 para cubrir los gastos de Anderson, compensar al personal que la ayuda y cubrir los costos de mantener un consejo asesor, nombrado por la presidente.Desde que Anderson anunció su decisión de jubilarse, algunos observadores han comentado sobre cómo las exigencias del cargo podrían afectar económicamente a posibles candidatos.Jennings, de 61 años, vive en Sagamore Hills, Ohio, y ha sido directora asociada de CREDO Institute Inc. durante los últimos nueve años. CREDO ofrece toda una gama de materiales de conferencias y posconferencias que ayudan a las personas con derecho a participar del Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia a examinar, evaluar y re-energizar su salud y bienestar.“Estoy trabajando para garantizar que tendré todo el tiempo necesario para dedicarme al cargo de Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados”, dijo Jennings a Episcopal News Service poco después de haber anunciado su intención de presentarse a elecciones.Antes de unirse a CREDO, Jennings prestó servicios como canóniga del ordinario en la Diócesis de Ohio durante 17 años. Fue ordenada al diaconado en 1978 y al presbiterado en 1979, y atendió parroquias en Virginia y Ohio a principios de su ministerio. Se presentó a la elección del obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia a principios de 2007, ocasión en que resultó electo el actual obispo Shannon Johnston.Ella está casada con el Rdo. Albert Jennings, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Timoteo [St. Timothy’s] en Macedonia, Ohio, y deán de la zona de misión de Summit en esa diócesis.Jennings presidió el comité de Gobierno y Administración para la Misión del Consejo Ejecutivo durante los últimos tres años de su permanencia en el Consejo. Como parte de su trabajo, el comité tomó la iniciativa de revisar los estatutos de este organismo y el manual de la política de personal de la DFMS.Ella es también miembro clérigo de la delegación de la Iglesia Episcopal al Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, cuya próxima reunión este otoño es en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda.— La Rda.

Trinity is within the blocked-off area near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, where two bombs exploded on April 15 as the race was ending. Packard was in the grandstands when the first bomb exploded and ran away in the direction of the second bomb, which went off 10 seconds later. AP Photo/Julio Cortez[Episcopal News Service] They all may not have been able to get to their churches, but in the hours after the second of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings was captured April 19, Episcopalians in the Boston area continued to support each other and their neighbors.Police captured Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, as he holed up in a boat parked in a backyard just blocks away from Church of the Good Shepherd in Watertown, Massachusetts. He was weakened by a gunshot wound after fleeing on foot from an overnight shootout with police that left 200 spent rounds behind.The Rev. Amy McCreath, Good Shepherd’s priest-in-charge, e-mailed her congregation shortly after the capture, calling the capture a “great gift.”“Your vestry met by conference call while events unfolded tonight, praying for all of you, for your children, and especially for our neighbors on Franklin Street,” she wrote.Good Shepherd was open during the day on April 20 for “prayer and companionship,” and Angelita Caceda was one member who came to the church the day after the internationally watched drama unfolded in her neighborhood. The evening before, she had been on the floor of her home as the bright light from a police search helicopter illuminated the room.“When I saw it was Franklin Street I said ‘that’s where I usually walk. I see that boat all the time,’” she told the Salem Patch website.McCreath said people came in the church and blurted out their experiences from the previous day. “They had it inside and needed to share it.”That evening about 300 people gathered on Watertown’s Victory Field for a vigil to remember the victims of the Marathon bombings.“This is one way everyday citizens can really give thanks to everyone that took care of us,” Mary Labadini, a 56-year-old elder care specialist who lives in Waltham and attended the vigil, told the Boston Globe. “You can’t thank them all individually, but this shows the sentiments of the public are with them.”Residents at the vigil swapped stories about the dramatic police action in their neighborhoods, including gun battles and methodical door-to-door searches by SWAT teams.Volunteers from a local Veterans of Foreign Wars post passed out American flags.Residents spontaneously sang the national anthem and other patriotic songs, recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and listened in silence as McCreath led an impromptu prayer of thanksgiving.Diocese of Massachusetts Thomas Shaw, SSJE, came to Good Shepherd on April 21 “as a sign to us of the prayers and companionship of the larger church,” McCreath told her parishioners.The church had healing ministers to pray with people during communion and a guided discussion during the Liturgy of the Word for children, “to help them process the events of the week and recover their calm and hope.”April 21 was the Fourth Sunday of Easter, is known as Good Shepherd Sunday because the gospel appointed for the day is John 10:22-30, a portion of the story in which Jesus calls himself the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep. Thus, it is the patronal feast day of congregations known as Good Shepherd.Members of Trinity Church Copley Square prepare for Holy Eucharist April 21 at Temple Israel. The parish members could not worship at Trinity because it is still cordoned off as investigators comb the area around the Boston Marathon finish line where two bombs exploded April 15. Photo/Trinity ChurchNot all Episcopalians could be in their church buildings for Good Shepherd Sunday. Trinity Church Copley Square, just yards from where the bombings occurred near the marathon’s finish line, is still off-limits because it is within the crime-scene boundaries investigators have set. The FBI allowed church officials a half hour on April 20 to go inside to gather vestments and the wine and bread for Eucharist, according to one report.The Temple Israel synagogue opened its doors to the congregation and Trinity’s congregation filled the 900-seat sanctuary. Rabbi Ronne Friedman told CNN that the synagogue was honored to host Trinity in an hour of need. “It was beautiful, moving,” he said. “And it was a reminder of the deep bonds that exist between us. It reminded us all that our proximity is not just geographical.“After the trauma of the past week, we are in proximate relationship with one another spiritually and psychologically. I think we all very much felt it was one Boston.”The Rev. Samuel T. Lloyd III, Trinity priest in charge, prayed for those who were slain “and for those who must rebuild their lives without the legs that they ran and walked on last week,” Yahoo News reported.“So where is God when the terrorists do their work?” Lloyd asked. “God is there, holding us and sustaining us. God is in the pain the victims are suffering, and the healing that will go on. God is with us as we try still to build a just world, a world where there will not be terrorists doing their terrible damage.”Debris still litters the streets near Trinity Church Copley Square six days after the Boston Marathon bombings. Photo/Trinity ChurchLloyd was among those priests and pastors who shared with Time magazine their thoughts about preaching on the Sunday after the six extraordinary days in Boston. He wrote that people had to name what the bombers tried to do to them and “name the way that has touched our spirits, and then talk about everything we are gathered to do on a Sunday, to care for each other, to remember the grace and mercy at the heart of everything day by day, and claiming the call to live that here and now. All of that is our answer to the terrorists’ efforts to undermine the fabric of our lives.”The service at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul near Boston Common included a prayer to the “Lord Christ, Risen Victim,” who “even on the cross you prayed for the forgiveness of those who murdered you.” The prayer in part asked that Christ would “remind us to pray for those who persecute us. Keep us aligned with your justice and not our own. Teach us to undo the cycles of violence and retribution and give us courage to act on our faith.”And, in London on April 20, the Rev. Jacqueline Cameron of the Diocese of Chicago preached for the London Marathon Dedication Service held at All Hallows by the Tower. The next day Cameron ran in the London Marathon for the second time and in her 14th marathon overall.The London event attracted much attention coming as it did six days after the attack in Boston and, as in Boston, many runners ran with pledges of support for various charities.“The potential healing power of events such as the London Marathon is at least as staggering as the power of violence,” Cameron said during her sermon. “We do need to remember pain. We do need to remember the suffering and the dead from Monday’s bombing and from all of the acts of violence and destruction that pepper human history. But also we need to learn how not to be burdened by bitterness or poisoned by a desire for revenge. And one of the best ways to do that is to allow our pain to spur us to acts of courage, of joy, and of compassion.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Not Fade Away

first_imgA confession: although On The Road is a fun read, I found that it never quite lived up to its reputation. The idea behind it all is great – drugs, rebelliousness, drink, sex and freedom – perfect ingredients for an adolescent’s ideal ofescape from home and the oldsters. It’s just that, well, it all got a bit samey after a while – they go off on a road trip, drive around a bit and come on back home. Jim Dodge’s Not Fade Away, reissued by Canongate, touches on the same territory, but with a whole chunk more gusto. Remember the Big Bopper? No, why should you, or indeed anyone born in the last 25 years. He was an old-school Rock and Roll singer, whose biggest hit was ‘Chantilly Lace’ (first line, “HELLOOOOO Baybeeeeee”). This might make sense in a minute or two. Not Fade Away follows ‘Floorboard’ George Gastin (“when it comes to whipping it down the road I’m right up there with the best. Never been in a wrech that wasn’t on purpose”), a grizzled old Beat who drives around in an old tow up truck, ‘The Ghost’. He picks up one unfortunate, and tells him the tale of his ‘Pilgrimage’. Going back many years to his youth, he recounts his days as a near-bum, listening to jazz, watching beautiful women, living with crooks and wasters. He finds himself employed by the local hoodlum, ‘Scumball’, to write off cars for insurance claims. It’s all a lot of fun until he’s asked to write off a pristine ’59 Cadillac. All this while being pursued by severely pissed-off violent gangsters, fuelled by Benzedrine and beer. Oh, and some LSD. Dodge’s writing is seriously fun; heaps of enthusiasm and lashings of atmosphere. Sadly I’ve never seen jazz the way he describes it – deep, dark and oh so dirty. Nor have I driven a soft-top classic car down those huge American highways. But thus book makes me want to seek out the seediest jazz joint in Cowley, take a crowbar to a powerful-looking car, and drive all the way to Mexico. It’s a big swirling trip of legendary musicians, drivers, roads and weird people. Try it, you might like it.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more
