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!

Economist Says Presidential Candidates Only Paying Lip-Service to Rural Issues

first_img Economist Says Presidential Candidates Only Paying Lip-Service to Rural Issues SHARE By Andy Eubank – Oct 17, 2012 Previous articleMatlock Gets Set for Run at FFA National OfficeNext articleVilsack Touts Ag Export Success Under President Obama Andy Eubank The Economics Department Chair at the University of North Dakota says the voters who place a high priority on agricultural policy and rural issues have been largely invisible in the presidential campaigns. Speaking on AgriTalk Radio this week – Dr. David Flynn said we’re hearing far too little about the issues affecting agriculture and rural economies. While these issues are critically important to the entire country – he said they’re being overlooked as both campaigns focus on regions and demographics where they believe the most votes are up for grabs. Flynn said the candidates tend to focus on the importance of farming in rural life when they visit small towns and state fairs in the middle part of the country – but not on the national stage. He noted campaign literature from both campaigns is dramatically lacking in policy statements on agriculture or rural issues. He believes the candidates should be pointing to agriculture as a success story – and looking at how to replicate that performance in other sectors of the economy.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Economist Says Presidential Candidates Only Paying Lip-Service to Rural Issues Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Family of woman killed in ‘cold medicine murder’ filled with regret

first_imgCourtesy Lauren Hugelmaier family(RALEIGH, N.C.) — The family of Lauren Phelps, who was brutally murdered by her husband last year, spoke out in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday to warn other families about the signs of domestic violence.Matthew Phelps, an aspiring pastor, told police that he’d taken too much cold medicine when he fatally stabbed his wife inside their North Carolina home on Sept. 1, 2017, but her family offered a more sinister explanation for the murder.“He planned the whole thing from the get-go in my opinion, right from day one to the end,” the slain woman’s father, Dale Hugelmaier, told Good Morning America on Wednesday. “The last time I saw my daughter, she came over looking for a three-ring binder. She was nervous and a little edgy and it didn’t look Lauren at all. … She looked a mess.“I regret it now — that I didn’t ask questions about what was going on,” he added.Sitting alongside his wife, Laurie, and his older daughter, Beth Anger, Dale Hugelmaier said his 29-year-old daughter was being abused by her husband and was too afraid to tell anyone. Now, he’s haunted by memories from her last days and constantly wondering whether he could have saved her, he said.“I think about it everyday. What I did wrong. What I missed. Till this day I just regret not knowing or keeping my eyes open and watching,” Dale Hugelmaier said. “I just took everything as is.”Matthew Phelps, who called 911 to report the murder, apologized to the Hugelmaiers in court earlier this month after pleading guilty to first-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole, but the family says they’re still not satisfied with the result.When asked about forgiving Matthew Phelps, Dale Hugelmaier replied: “No. Never. I mean, I’ll take him to my grave. And I’ll still hate him.”Two months before her death, Lauren Phelps revealed horrifying details about her husband’s previous marriage, including claims that he assaulted his prior wife and lied to her about the nature of their separation, according to the family.“He was so good at manipulating the situation,” her mother, Laurie, said before breaking down in tears. “They told us that he had killed her and that he had stabbed her. And he had stabbed her so many times that they would have to count the stab wounds in the autopsy.“She was laying on her stomach on the floor. He was sitting on her back stabbing her,” she added.The couple had been married for 10 months at the time of the murder, but the family said Lauren Phelps was ready to end it.“I think, that night when he left with another woman, she just said, ‘I’m done. I can’t do it,’” Anger said. “That was the night he killed her.”Anger said she’d spoken to her sister just a few hours before she died. She said the couple had been arguing over Matthew Phelps’ alleged cheating and Lauren Phelps said she notified him about her plans to leave.“I think that he made a decision that day that Lauren was not gonna leave him, even if that meant he had to kill her,” Anger told “GMA.” “The police called him a monster. And we’re talking about homicide detectives who see homicides every day.”Investigators said Lauren Phelps was found lying in the fetal position on the couple’s bedroom floor, suffering from 123 stab wounds, including some to her head, neck and arms, according to an autopsy report.“I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed,” Matthew Phelps, said in a 911 call. “I think I did it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Parkland Survivors March for, Against “Black Lives Matter” Movement

first_imgMarjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors and Parkland residents marched on Saturday, in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement.“I’m glad with how it turned out but even if we only got a few people, it’s the message that’s important,” said Parkland Shooting Survivor Hannah Karcinell.Shooting victim Joaquin Oliver’s parents helped organize the event, through their non-profit Change the Ref.The organization focuses on youth empowerment and gun safety.“I feel like they’re entangled in each other,” said Karcinell.The March began in front of the high school and ended at Pine Trails Park amphitheater.Meanwhile, other Parkland residents had a counter-protest for Blue Lives Matter across the intersection. “We believe it’s important for the police to know that we support them and what they do. They have a very difficult job and if you fail to support the police you’ll have worse police,” said Andrew Klein, who helped organize that event.“it’s honestly horrifying to me that this is a response from my neighbors, it’s a response to black lives matter,” said Karcinell.Still, the groups found some similar views on the need for police reform.“With what happened the day of the shooting, with the school resource officer not doing anything and other police officers doing nothing, just standing outside the freshman building as 17 people were murdered,” said Karcinell.“MSD was a failure in policing. George Floyd was an absolute failure. And those things need to be corrected,” added Klein.Both protests remained peaceful.last_img read more

Steel Sensations Game Day Preview…Bears at Steelers

first_imgThe Steelers are in a rare spot after two weeks, they are 0-2. They’ve never been 2 games under .500 in the Mike Tomlin era until now. If there were ever a must win situation in a week three matchup, this is it. If the black and gold fall to 0-3, the season is all but lost. Yet, if they win the contest, they’ll remain only 1 game out of first place and if the Ravens and Bengals were to both lose, they’d actually be tied for first. The problem is the offense, can they get anything done against a tough Bears defense?Here are the Steelers Keys to Victory:1. The team must figure out a way to get first downs. It sounds ridiculous to even read that but it’s sadly true. They haven’t proven they can move the ball effectively and they must control the ball and finally move it down field on offense. They don’t have to score every time, but they must discontinue the three and outs.2. They need to run the shotgun formation to allow Big Ben more time in the pocket. At this juncture it’s obvious the O line can’t protect him so they must find another way to do so.3. Big Ben needs to be allowed to call his own plays.  Todd Haley has failed miserably in his play calling both last year and now into this season. The offense is far more effective when Ben calls.4. The defense has been solid but has yet to force a turnover. They need to provide the offense some help when it comes to field position and there is no better way than to pick off a pass or recover a fumble.A Few Things To Watch This Week:1. Antonio Brown-He’s not satisfied with the amount of balls going his way and he had a blow up with Todd Haley last week. Will he be a bigger part of this offense?2. The O line-They have to understand that they are getting Ben killed. Will they finally step up and protect their franchise quarterback?3. Ike Taylor-He played one heck of a game last week manning up against AJ Green. He’ll be pitted against a big, physical Brandon Marshall this week. Can he contain him?4. Heath Miller-Will he play? He’s getting close and this could be the week he returns. If he does, how will he impact the struggling offense?
