Butcher and Wright set scene for Highland fling

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scottish fansSCOTLAND UNDER-20 head coach Peter Wright and Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC manager Terry Butcher have joined forces to encourage supporters in the Highlands to sample 6 Nations action close to home when the young Scots play Ireland at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Friday 25 February (kick-off 7.30pm, admission FREE).The match will be the second Scotland under-20 fixture to be hosted by the SPL club in as many seasons, with last year’s dramatic draw with France attracting several thousand fans. Butcher today threw his weight behind the game, urging the local rugby public and Inverness CT supporters alike to make it another night to remember.In an exclusive interview with www.scotlandrugbyteam.org, the former England and Rangers captain said: “It’s a real occasion to have rugby in the Highlands, and given the crowd and the warmth you received the last time, it’s great to have you back.  I’m planning to come down and enjoy the game myself before we travel to play Hibs in Edinburgh the following day, and I’d say to people in the surrounding area that it’s something really different to come along and watch rugby here at the stadium.”“It’s a great venue for any sport, be it football or rugby; the pitch is in good condition, and with the way Scotland under-20 play the game and how you look after the pitch afterwards, we’re thrilled to have you back.”Butcher has strong personal rugby ties, having once been a budding stand-off with Lowestoft Grammar School, his Suffolk alma mater. His sons, Ed and Christopher, both reached the under-18 Scottish Schools Cup final with Dollar Academy, Ed being a contemporary of current Scotland and Glasgow Warriors back-row forward John Barclay and representing Caledonia at under-18 level.Butcher confirmed: “Both my boys loved the game, and I really enjoyed the camaraderie and spirit that came along with it. I played fly-half at school, probably because I was the only one who could kick a ball. I’m left-footed, so I would come inside and kick it long, and I also took all the penalties. I enjoyed the rucks, even if as a stand-off you probably shouldn’t get involved in them too much.”Wright, the former British and Irish Lions and Scotland prop, declared himself “absolutely delighted” to be taking his team to Inverness once more. He said: “The facilities on offer at the stadium are first-class, the pitch is excellently maintained and if the support we got last year is anything to go by, there is a massive amount of passion for the sport in the Highlands and it’s great to be able to feed that. The Ireland game is huge for us in terms of injecting some momentum into our 6 Nations campaign, and from that point of view, the bigger the crowd the better.”“It’s great to see from Terry the enthusiasm that Inverness Caley Thistle have for hosting us here, and given that they are away to Hibs that weekend, it’s hopefully a good chance for some of their supporters to come out and see something a bit different right on their own doorstep.”As with all home Scotland A, Scotland under-20, Club International, under-18, under-17 and Scotland Women games this season, admission to next Friday’s game at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium is FREE.

Scrumgate: Solving the Irish nightmare – Paul Wallace

first_imgThe IRFU Player Succession Strategy mean that in future only one non Irish-eligible player will be allowed to play in any one position among all four provinces. This is targeted at the tighthead issue. Also, the IRFU are at last recruiting a high-performance scrum coach that should pay long-term dividends.However, what’s needed is a scrum academy with specialist mentors. As an ex-tighthead, I could help a hooker or loosehead but wouldn’t be anywhere as enlightened as someone who plied their trade there for many moons. Specialist coaches for the front-row and second-row positions are needed – with emphasis on a tighthead coach.There should also be more freedom for younger props to go overseas to get top-level experience before they hit their prime in their late 20s.This article appeared in the May 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK.

For many, it was a shock that the Irish scrum could be so completely demolished but this was a long time coming, writes Paul Wallace.Though under the cosh from the start, when Mike Ross left the pitch on 36 minutes, I had my head in my hands with knowledge of what was to come. With the wet conditions, the outcome was clear to see as Tom Court jogged onto the pitch. It’s a long time since I’ve seen a game so dominated by the scrum as Ireland went back rather than up or down to stop the push.Some thought that Cian Healy or Court should have gone off ‘injured’ to bring about uncontested scrums. Ireland’s reward for doing the right thing was an incorrect penalty try by Nigel Owens as the scrum didn’t infringe – unless backpedalling at pace is an offence. But the dominant scrum gets all the calls – as Ireland did at RWC 2011 against Australia – and England were certainly that.Court shouldn’t be blamed for the complete implosion of the Irish scrum: both scrum sides disintegrated and he’s a loosehead prop who had to fill in on the much more difficult tighthead side. You should always have a tighthead on the bench as they can more easily adapt to the loosehead role. However, Ireland currently have no one to make even a half-decent fist of replacing Ross.In fact, Irish rugby has been riding its luck for years. Some thought John Hayes was irreplaceable during a decade of service but there was actually strength in depth that was never given a fair crack of the whip. Ross was sent to England due a lack of interest in Ireland. His years in London turned him into the raw material that could be moulded into a Test prop when he came back to Leinster.Outside of Ross, there’s no competition on the radar for one of the most vital positions on the pitch.Tony Buckley hasn’t come through as hoped and is off to pasture at Sale. Next in line should be Jamie Hagan but he’s not playing regularly due to being behind Ross at Leinster. Ulster’s Paddy McAllistair and Declan Fitzpatrick and Munster’s Stephen Archer are being denied big-match experience by John Afoa and BJ Botha respectively. The only tighthead to have progressed is Ronan Loughney in Connacht and he’s still quite raw.last_img read more

Match verdict: England 20-13 Australia

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 02: Mike Brown of England claims a high ball ahead of Will Genia of Australia during the QBE International match between England and Australia at Twickenham Stadium on November 2, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by David Rogers – RFU/The RFU Collection via Getty Images,) Captain fantastic: England skipper Chris Robshaw holds aloft the Cook Cup after a fine try-scoring performanceBy Owain JonesIn a nutshellFirstly the good news. England needed to win and duly delivered, it was their eighth win in nine Test matches. That above all else was key as England continue to lay the foundations for the Autumn. Stuart Lancaster will be thrilled at the resolve England showed to come from behind but privately he’ll be under no illusions it was a vintage England performance. On the upside, the scrum as a collective, had the upper hand over a Wallaby pack that spent most of its time trying to limit a steady flow of penalties against them. However, in Lancaster’s inbox for Monday morning will be rectifying England’s laboured play at times, handling errors, a lack of conviction in midfield and defensive frailties that were laid bare when Toomua blasted over. Owen Farrell had a mixed day in front of the posts and against better sides that could prove costly but he emerged with credit from the day. One down, two to go.Turning point: Chris Robshaw pounces to level the scoresKey moment: Chris Robshaw try 49minsEngland had a listless middle period where they went from 6-3 up to 13-6 down and chasing the game. It took a rousing from the Twickenham crowd to stir them into action. They gained momentum as usual, thanks to a break by Mike Brown and from the resulting play, Marland Yarde streaked 40 metres down the left wing. From the lineout and heavy pressure Mako Vunipola managed to charge down a harried Will Genia on the line and Chris Robshaw, like any good openside flanker, was first to pounce on the ball. It was a score that drew England level and back in the game.Star man: Mike BrownThe Quins man did not put a foot wrong for 80 minutes. Whether it was taking a series of high kicks confidently, kicking and collecting the high ball, or running with conviction at the Wallaby defence and breaking the first tackler, he was comfortably England’s most complete player and a reassuring presence as the last line of defence. The only man not ot have enjoyed it, must have been Ben Foden. Honourable mention to Chris Robshaw who tackled agressively and fully deserved his try.ScorersEngland: Tries Robshaw (1) Owen Farrell (1). Pens Owen Farrell (2).

England v All Blacks: England change their midfield for third Test

first_imgWith the Test series already wrapped up and the England players admitting that this one is all about writing wrongs and leaving these islands with something to show for it – something that will undoubtedly still impress the rest of the rugby world – they have thrown the initiative to those who Lancaster feels can keep calm heads when the hosts put pressure on.“It’s about understanding momentum in a game and changing it back to your momentum,” Lancaster said. “There are certain things you can do. To use football terminology you need to put your foot on the ball. It’s getting players to understand that in the heat of battle, when a couple of things have gone against us, territory and possession becomes more important. What might be appropriate in a different context in the game is not appropriate in this context. That’s what unfolded in that 20-minute period (in Dunedin). It comes down to experience in the end.”Looking at a run at centre: TuilagiOf course, with Tuilagi being brought back towards the heavy traffic and off the wing, there would be a suggestion that the grand experiment has failed. But as the England head coach was pressed on whether or not the move in the second Test was a failure he downplayed the move and later spoke of the great opportunity in front of Ashton.On whether Tuilagi on the wing was a bust he said: “No, I think it was fine. Manu played well on the wing and definitely didn’t make any errors. He contributed well to the game and it is definitely something we will look at for the future without a doubt.” TAGS: Highlight England have ended up reverting back to some of their first Test combinations for their final run out in Hamilton this Saturday, with Stuart Lancaster claiming “I still think we are finding out which players can and can’t play at international level.”The biggest change for England has been dropping Billy Twelvetrees altogether so that Kyle Eastmond can start at 12, with Manu Tuilagi at 13. Luther Burrell gives them an option from the bench.With Owen Farrell pulling out with a knee injury yesterday it was clear that Freddie Burns was going to start, but with Danny Care also pulling out with a recurrence of the shoulder injury that kept him from playing in Auckland and Ben Youngs starting again, England have the same nine, ten, 11 and 12 from the first Test.More experienced players have also come in to support the youngsters from the first Test, as Dylan Hartley is reinstated at hooker, Courtney Lawes sends Joe Launchbury to the bench in order to start beside Geoff Parling and Billy Vunipola swaps with Ben Morgan to start. Chris Ashton joins Marland Yarde and Mike Brown in the back three and Lee Dickson and Danny Cipriani come on to the bench.Clapping on the kids: Stuart Lancaster has welcomed back some youngsters from Test oneWhen asked about his centres, Lancaster admitted that he was sussing out “who can really deliver at the highest level, let’s put it that way. We’ve had a good chance to look at Twelvetrees during the course of the season. Eastmond’s come in, he’s had one opportunity, he’s taken it, now’s the right time to give him a second chance.“Looking at Kyle (Eastmond) and Manu (Tuilagi) again in the third test will give us the form they showed with Luther as an option from the bench. And potentially at 12 to go alongside Manu. It is more form than anything else.” England team to face the All Blacks: Mike Brown; Chris Ashton, Manu Tuilagi, Kyle Eastmond, Marland Yarde; Freddie Burns, Ben Youngs; Joe Marler, Dylan Hartley, Dave Wilson, Courtney Lawes, Geoff Parling, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw (c), Billy Vunipola.England subs: Rob Webber, Matt Mullan, Kieran Brookes, Joe Launchbury, Ben Morgan, Lee Dickson, Danny Cipriani, Luther Burrell.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Right back in the mix: Kyle Eastmond is brought back in at inside centre for the third Test last_img read more

The scrum put-in laws in rugby explained

first_img Ready to engage: Italy and England pack down for a scrum in the Six Nations. Photo: Getty Images A front-row player must strike the ball once it is put into the tunnel.This is traditionally done by the hooker as they are in the best position to strike the ball but either prop is also permitted to do this.This means the ball cannot be fed straight to the second row, as had previously been happening.The aim is to promote a fair contest for possession.If teams don’t strike the ball, the opposition will be awarded a free-kick.HandlingThe No 8 is allowed to pick up the ball from the second row.Previously teams had to wait until the ball came through to the back row but the No 8 is now permitted to collect it from the second row.The aim is to promote continuity and speed up play. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSThe strike Head to head: The scrum-half now puts the ball in slightly off-centre. Photo: Getty ImagesThe put-in The scrum-half must put the ball in straight to the scrum, but they are allowed to align their shoulder to the middle line of the scrum.This means they are putting the ball in a shoulder’s width towards their own team’s side of the scrum.So the ball has to be put in straight, but rather than being put in down the middle of the tunnel it is put in slightly towards the scrum-half’s own team.The referee no longer signals when the scrum-half should put the ball in.The aim is to promote a fair contest for possession while also giving an advantage to the team putting the ball into the scrum. In most cases the opposition will have infringed for that team to be awarded the put-in. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The scrum put-in rules in rugby explainedIn recent years the law surrounding the put-in at the scrum in rugby has created a lot of debate. In particular, around the fact that crooked feeds – i.e. the ball not being rolled in straight down the middle of the tunnel of the scrum by the scrum-half but angled towards their own team – have not been penalised by referees at elite level.Rugby World magazine’s letters inbox receives more emails about this topic than anything else! So it’s little surprise that World Rugby  introduced a law amendment surrounding the scrum put-in for the 2017-18 season.Referee Pascal Gauzere penalised both Wales and Scotland for not putting the ball in straight in the opening game of the most recent Six Nations while Nigel Owens penalised France for a crooked feed against Ireland in the same competition as well, but what exactly is different this season?

The analysis going into England’s Rugby World Cup preparation

first_imgMay adds of his own prep: “It’s not just the guy you are up against either. I’ll often look at the kicking games of nines, tens and full-backs. Also who are the opposition’s better and weaker defenders. You want a rough idea to give you a feel without over-thinking…because the game will surprise you every week.”The group go through examples from games in November and during the Six Nations, reverse-engineering certain moments in big games and how their analysis led them there; whilst also analysing the plays themselves for the group here.The team go through a try against the All Blacks in November, explaining that “the sell” and “deception” – as the ball swings one way with players running the other – is the key to the score. Before the game against Australia the same month the theme for the week was “brutal defence”. The clip they show next displays how front-foot ball can lead to a score in that Test – against the Wallabies, May scores in the first few minutes after a dominant England scrum.Before their final clip, from the Six Nations, they explain that disrupting Ireland’s rhythm was the theme heading into that match. In the footage, we see a patient England starving the Irish of ball before kicking it into the oppositions territory and then pressuring Robbie Henshaw with good chasing, forcing him to slice a clearance kick.At the heart of all this is doing the simple things to an incredibly high degree.Credit: Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is the Official Performance Partner to England RugbyMay explains: “The way we want to play is to create speed of ball and then there is a decision to make. If you get that speed of ball, there is going to be space somewhere.”Launchbury adds of the Ireland example: “We kept the ball in the middle of the pitch. We wanted to starve them of the ball, but not to our detriment. We didn’t want to keep possession in areas of the pitch where we could have conceded penalties and stuff. We knew they’d have one guy in the backfield most of the time. It was territory-based.”Of course, these are just a few examples of how England work – and for all the ‘simplicity’, there is incredible detail within each action and the build-up to performing it.As this group hurtle towards the Rugby World Cup in Japan, there will be a lot more analysis done. That’s a lot of hours spent in the learning room. And a lot of late nights for the analysts!

Lister usually operates the drone that captures aerial footage of each England session, no matter the conditions. As they explain, there is a great deal of scrutiny in the modern game, especially midweek.“There’s no hiding place in training – every fault is recording and played back,” laughs Launchbury.“We usually get a great deal of our team analysis done during the week to try and get as much clarity into our training on the Monday or Tuesday. Towards the back-end of the week, players start to do their individual analysis, maybe on the strengths and weaknesses of your opposite man and how you would counteract them.“For me, from a lineout point of view, that is when you would focus in on a bit more detail, two or three days before a game – the trends they have, the numbers they operate with in different areas of the pitch, how often they drive and how often they play off the top, all variants of that. There’s a responsibility on us as players to use the resources we have to do a bit of individual work as well.”In typical style, May nips in, adding extra detail: “The day after a game, you will be able to click on your name and have a list of your match involvements straight away. That saves time and you can see exactly what you’ve done and what you might have done differently.”Monitors: GPS at training (Getty Images)Lister explains that the team have what they call a ‘Learning Room’ with six iMacs set-up with incidents marked up for the players. Through the week, there will be squad and unit-specific meetings and the analysts (Lister is part of a team with Carwyn Morgan, who looks at attack, and Joe Lewis, who is in charge of defence) will try to have training marked up as soon after a session’s close as possible.You can have access to vast amounts of data should you wish. The consensus here is that head coach Eddie Jones is very good at distilling lots of information down into a few key points to focus on, either in training or in the upcoming game.“You look at strengths and opportunities against them,” Mark Wilson says of his future opposite men. “Specifically as a back-row, I might study how (an opponent) carries the ball so I know how best to tackle him.” We give you a glimpse into how England study themselves and opposition – and tell you about a competition that offers the chance to support the team in Japanlast_img read more

Dr. Caroline Hall, president of Integrity USA. “We can rejoice that in California, our right to equal treatment under the law has been upheld and our marriages are once again recognized. This will be an encouragement to all those fighting this battle in their own states.”She and other Integrity leaders called upon the six Episcopal dioceses in California “to extend a generous pastoral response to lesbian and gay couples so that our legal rights can be celebrated in our churches and our marriages blessed by the church in the same manner afforded to our straight friends and family. This is an enormously important symbol of the Episcopal Church’s true willingness to welcome all people even those of us who are LGBT and to extend all the sacraments to all the baptized. We hope that California citizens will soon be able to marry the person they love.”“While this is a huge victory in the battle for marriage equality, this fight is far from over,” continued the Integrity statement. “Same-sex married couples still face federal discrimination against their marriages because of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Integrity vows to continue to fight for marriage equality both within and outside of the church. We will not stop until we can claim the promise that all really means ALL.”“I was overjoyed when I heard that the right to marriage equality has been upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals,” wrote the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles, in a statement to ENS. “The Constitution of the United States allows for equal rights under the law, and the 14th Amendment guarantees that every human being, regardless of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation, is equally protected by the constitution of our land.”Saying that it is a “foregone conclusion” that opponents of gay marriage will appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, Bruno said he prayed for “swift action on the part of the Supreme Court that will strike down opposition to marriage equality.”“We all are truly created in the image of God; therefore, we should all be afforded the respect and dignity of that creation,” Bruno said. “I will pray that we soon will have regained the privilege and right of marriage equality for all people.”The Rt. Rev. Chester Talton, provisional bishop of San Joaquin (California), concurred. “I am pleased with the decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in declaring Proposition 8 unconstitutional,” he said.  “I believe that it was a divisive and discriminatory law which attempted to lessen the dignity of gay and lesbian people. I do not think that this decision lessens the significance of marriage for heterosexual people, but contributes to upholding the dignity and equality of all persons.”Supporters of Proposition 8 have already said that they intend to appeal the ruling. A stay halting same-sex marriages remains in place as the appeals process continues.According to a statement posted on the website of the Alliance Defense Fund, a conservative Christian legal foundation that backed Proposition 8, the group was not surprised that “this Hollywood-orchestrated attack on marriage — tried in San Francisco — turned out this way.”But the group said it was confident the Supreme Court would uphold “the expressed will of the American people.”Another Proposition 8 supporter, the Mormon Church, which played a significant role in passage of the measure, issued a statement saying that the church “regrets today’s decision.“California voters have twice determined in a general election that marriage should be recognized as only between a man and a woman,” according to spokesman Scott Trotter in a statement on the church website. “We have always had that view. Courts should not alter that definition, especially when the people of California have spoken so clearly on the subject.“Millions of voters in California sent a message that traditional marriage is crucial to society. They expressed their desire, through the democratic process, to keep traditional marriage as the bedrock of society, as it has been for generations.“We recognize that this decision represents a continuation of what has been a vigorous public debate over the rights of the people to define and protect the fundamental institution of marriage. There is no doubt that today’s ruling will intensify the debate in this country. We urge people on all sides of this issue to act in a spirit of mutual respect and civility toward those with a different opinion.”Similarly, the Catholic Church issued a statement “denouncing” the ruling.“Today’s court ruling is a grave injustice, ignoring the reality that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” according to Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. conference of Catholic Bishops.“The Constitution of the United States most assuredly does not forbid the protection of the perennial meaning of marriage, one of the cornerstones of society. The people of California deserve better. Our nation deserves better. Marriage deserves better.”The court’s ruling comes as the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church will be asked to consider approval of a three-year trial use of blessings of same gender relationships during its 77th triennial gathering July 5-12 in Indianapolis.The Episcopal Church’s Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music has made resources available in English and Spanish in preparation for the meeting.At its 2009 gathering in Anaheim the 76th General Convention approved Resolution C056 which says that bishops, “particularly those in dioceses within civil jurisdictions where same-gender marriage, civil unions, or domestic partnerships are legal, may provide a generous pastoral response to meet the needs of members of this church.”The Feb. 7 ruling was only the latest round in the checkered battle for marriage equality in the state.In 2000, state voters passed Proposition 22, which restricted marriage to a man and a woman, but the measure was ruled unconstitutional by the California Supreme Court eight years later.The state began granting marriage licenses on June 16, 2008 but halted the practice on Nov. 5 with the passage of Proposition 8. In the meantime, an estimated 18,000 same-gender couples wed and remain legally married.In Aug. 2010 federal judge Vaughn Walker declared the ban on gay marriage unconstitutional, but critics have said he should have disclosed that he is gay and in a longtime relationship with a man prior to issuing his ruling. Supporters of Proposition 8 say he should have been disqualified from the case, but the now-retired Walker’s successor as chief judge, James Ware, ruled in June that Walker had no duty to disclose details of his private life, and found no evidence that he had been biased.—The Rev.

One wishes, however, that the first three words of the article had been “Marriage equality supporters” and not “Gay marriage supporters.” This decision is one in a series that relate to equality in marriage and I believe it is continuous and congruent with the landmark Loving v. Virginia case in which SCOTUS struck down marriage inequality based solely upon the race of a couple. It is also continuous and congruent with the SCOTUS decision in Romer v. Evans related to equal rights without regard to sexual orientation. As to the comment of Joseph F. Foster regarding Bp. Bruno’s reference to the 14th “Ammendment” [sic], that amendment does not include the words “race” or “creed” either but is interpreted to protect against discrimination based upon race and / or creed, among other protected categories. The US Constitution, contrary to those who hold an “originalist” / “textualist” interpretation is not a Zombie document, not a “living dead” document. Rather, it is a living document, continuously subject to fresh insight and interpretation (as is Holy Scripture), seeking not to devour the brain of one seeking its understanding, but rather linking to the informed reason of such brain to enhance liberty and equality, bringing both to greater abundance and wider scope. There will always be argument about that process and its results; neither Ohio nor New Jersey ratified the 14th amendment until 2003 ! it was, nonetheless, binding upon them. Personally, having conferred with some ‘legal beagle’ friends on the matter, I expect SCOTUS to do an end run around the Prop 8 matter when it comes to them, as it surely will, by deciding that problems exist related to “standing” in the case and return it to lower courts. And should SCOTUS declare that marriage is strictly a ‘states rights’ matter and not subject to federal regulation, that will concomitantly overthrow DOMA and likely via the ‘full faith and credit” clause of Article IV, Sec. 1, have additional consequence on interstate recognition of marriage equality.

It was a three judge panel, not the full 9th Circuit. And one of the two judges making the majority I understand leads the Court of Appeals in decisions overturned, as does the Ninth Circuit generally.2. Contrary to what you quote + Los Angeles as saying, the 14th Ammendment says nothing whatever about “sexual orientation”. Or disorientation.

Constitution is guideline for living together peacefully with dignity in a certain geographical area irrespective of color, creed, and ethnicity as well as in worldly term sexual orientation; and the Bible is the spiritual guideline living holistically to attain God’s grace for eternal life. It is true that the Bible does not endorse homosexuality to its entirety neither It accepts extra marital sex. Denying the Bible as a Christian is like denying constitution in a county. God’s verdict in Judgment Day is the ultimate ruling all Christian should wait for.

ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[12 de julio de 2012] El siguiente sermón fue presentado hoy en la 77a Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal, que se reúne en Indianápolis, Indiana, hasta el 12 de julio.EUCARISTÍA DE CLAUSURA12 de julio de 2012SoderblomRvdma. Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidente y PrimadaIglesia EpiscopalTengo algunas malas noticias. El [Comité de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas] PB&F le pidió a Gregory Straub que encontrara la última auditoría y, cuando él fue a buscarla en los Archivos, descubrió que habíamos usado la edición equivocada de la Constitución y Cánones en todas nuestras deliberaciones. La conclusión general es que todo lo que hemos hecho aquí es por tanto inválido. ¿Están dispuestos a comenzar de nuevo?Eso es básicamente lo que le sucedió al rey Josías. Hilcías fue a investigar las finanzas del Templo y descubrió que habían estado leyendo el código legal equivocado durante muchos años.Hemos tenido algunos conflictos aquí que se asemejan un poquito a eso —como la discusión sobre si esta organización es jerárquica o no, o qué clase de gobierno o estructura canónica es más probable que tuvieran en mente los individuos que celebraron la primera convención de la Iglesia Episcopal en 1785.Pasarán muchas más convenciones antes de que todos nosotros convengamos en algo, pero saben una cosa, ¡ESO NO IMPORTA! No nos pondremos de acuerdo antes de la Segunda Venida, pero hay sólo una regla esencial: “ámense unos a otros”, dice Jesús, “como yo les he amado”. Ésa es la primera y única regla de vida común en Cristo. Es la misma que citaba Agustín de Hipona: “ama a Dios y haz lo que quieras”. La versión de Martin Lutero era, “peca con ganas… tendrás más de que arrepentirte”.Nuestra tarea no se consuela tímidamente con los detalles de nuestra buena conducta —¡ni siquiera en el impecable proceso parlamentario! La vida en Cristo es arriesgada, se trata de lanzarse a las inciertas opciones que se presentan ante nosotros, al igual que Indiana Jones en ese puente endeble [1] —avanzando sobre el abismo sin saber si el puente estará allí hasta que lo hallamos cruzado. En lo más profundo, en el fondo, el cuerpo de Cristo tienen una perdurable memoria de la fiabilidad de ese puente, aun si los individuos no lo recuerdan tan bien.Eso es lo que Lars Olof Jonathan Söderblom le ofreció al mundo. El cuerpo de Cristo, ciertamente la totalidad de todo el pueblo fiel, tiene mucho que enseñarle a sus miembros sobre confianza y seguridad —y todo gira en torno al amor.Söderblom —al que llamaron Nathan la mayor parte de su vida— fue un pastor luterano sueco, teólogo y arzobispo de Upsala, que nació en 1866 y murió en 1931. Provenía de una tradición fronteriza, y eso fue obvio desde temprana edad. Su diploma universitario fue en griego, hebreo, árabe y latín. Y comenzó estudios académicos formales en religiones comparadas.[2] En 1890 vino a Estados Unidos para asistir a una reunión de la Asociación Misionera de Estudiantes —algo así como una Convención General para jóvenes adultos. Regresó a Suecia, fue ordenado y lo nombraron capellán de un hospital para enfermos mentales y luego comenzó a buscar un empleo que le pagara lo suficiente para permitirle casarse. Anna Forsell, una de las 20 mujeres que había entre los 1700 estudiantes de la universidad, fue tanto la colaboradora de sus escritos como su esposa. A Söderblom lo nombraron para la iglesia sueca en París, y allí estuvo hasta 1901. Esa congregación parisiense se llenaba de artistas, diplomáticos y empresarios escandinavos, entre ellos Alfred Nobel y August Strindberg, así como mayores de los 13 hijos de Söderblom.La Iglesia de Suecia comenzó plantando iglesias en el exterior desde 1626, y esa iglesia de París fue la primera. Hubo varias en las colonias [inglesas] de Norteamérica que terminaron por convertirse en iglesias episcopales. La Iglesia de Suecia tiene una antigua tradición de ecumenismo, de amor, erudición y colaboración con otros.Söderblom regresó a Suecia para asumir un puesto académico en la Universidad de Upsala, y comenzó un avivamiento teológico en la Iglesia sueca y a nivel ecuménico. Trabajó en la fácil tarea de la paz mundial y la renovación litúrgica.A Söderblom se le recuerda con mayor nitidez por haber comenzado, con la Conferencia de Vida y Obra en Estocolmo en 1925, el movimiento ecuménico moderno. Él insistía en que la espiritualidad personal carecía de sentido si estaba divorciada de la labor en pro de la justicia en la sociedad, y llamó a los líderes cristianos en repetidas ocasiones a hacer causa común a favor de la paz mundial. En 1930 le otorgaron el Premio Nobel de la Paz.La paz comienza con el mutuo amor. Comienza con las personas que se encuentran en este salón. Este organismo ha hecho una magnífica labor durante los últimos días. Hemos sido testigos de varios saltos más allá de las antiguas esferas de seguridad por amor a los otros. Cada persona que ha salido al frente lo ha hecho a fin de encontrarse con otra. Y hemos encontrado un nuevo lugar, una tercera vía más allá de cualquier otra que conociéramos antes.Conserven lo que han aprendido aquí sobre la genuina hospitalidad [3] y sigan adelante. Acaso podamos entender la manera de amar a todo el mundo en esta Iglesia. Esta labor de reconciliación no se trata de un salto BASE [4]: hallar una emoción en estirar una banda de goma que lo sujeta a uno a la tierra. La misión de Dios es una auténtica obra de fe, el tipo de confiada vulnerabilidad que sabe que no hay más que una regla para mantenernos a salvo, la cuerda del espíritu que nos llevará hasta los brazos de un Amigo al otro lado de ese abismo. [5]Abandonen, pues, este estrecho borde de seguridad y ámense los unos a los otros. Salgan de ahí al encuentro de su Amigo del otro lado. Crucen el abismo y encontrarán al otro, y cada uno será portador de la imagen de Dios. Confíen en las alas de la mañana, y ¡aventúrense!
