Campamentos de música en Alaska crean una comunidad mientras enseñan…

Belle Mickelson, de la Diócesis de Alaska,  es también un vehículo de restauración y de formación comunitaria.Hace casi dos décadas, ella pasó una noche bebiendo té y tocando música con los ancianos de Galena, una aldea del centro de Alaska en las márgenes del Yukón, luego de haber dirigido allí un taller de 4-H. “Les pregunté, ‘¿cómo andan las cosas en Galena?’ Ellos se sentían muy deprimidos y desalentados debido a todos los suicidios”.El índice de suicidios en Alaska es dos veces mayor que el promedio nacional y es mayor incluso entre los alasqueños nativos. El estado también tiene una de las tasas más altas per cápita en consumo de bebidas alcohólicas.“Pensé … ¿qué pudiera hacer para ayudar?”, recordaba Mickelson. Advirtiendo el impacto positivo que tiene la música en los niños, ella inauguró en Córdova un campamento de música 4-H para niños hace 18 años. “Al cabo de cinco años, supe que todos los lugares deberían tener uno”.“En medio de todos esto, tuve el llamado a hacerme sacerdote, y eso es lo que quería hacer, llevar este programa, esta música, a las aldeas para ayudar a la prevención del suicidio y el consumo de drogas y bebidas alcohólicas”.En más de cinco años que han pasado desde que se graduó del seminario, ha estado dirigiendo campamentos de música en la aldeas nativas de la diócesis a través de un programa llamado Bailando con el Espíritu [Dancing with the Spirit].  Ella pasa la mitad de su tiempo en Córdova, donde trabaja a media jornada en la iglesia episcopal de San Jorge [St. George’s Episcopal Church] y la otra mitad viajando. “Mi parroquia está dirigida básicamente por laicos la mitad del tiempo”.Mientras dirige campamentos de música, Michelson también ayuda a las iglesias locales, presidiendo oficios si no tienen un sacerdote.Mitch Wiehl, participante del campamento musical, Bailando con el Espíritu, toca el violín en Arctic Village, Alaska. Foto, cortesía de Dancing with the Spirit.“Siento, realmente, que tengo dos llamados. El principal es llevar el programa de música a las aldeas”, explica.Donaciones de escuelas, de consejos tribales y de individuos financian Bailando con el Espíritu, que hasta ahora ha llegado a 22 aldeas nativas y ha llevado a cabo campamentos en las principales comunidades alasqueñas de Fairbanks, Anchorage, Córdova y Juneau. En 2008, una subvención de $10,000 del Ministerio Nativoamericano/Indígena de la Iglesia Episcopal y otra de $20.000 de la Sociedad Diaconisa Luterana [Lutheran Deaconess Society] ayudaron a expandir el alcance del programa.Una subvención de $10,000 de la Alianza Nacional Misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal en 2011 le permitió al programa asociarse con el distrito escolar de Yukon Flats y ofrecer un retiro de guitarra góspel junto con un torneo distrital de volibol. “En verdad me gusta la idea de que fuéramos la banda de animación del partido de volibol”, dijo Mickelson.Más de 100 niños y adolescentes siguen asistiendo al campamento original 4-H cada verano,  con muchas familias que vienen de fuera y pasan el verano en Córdova. Los niños de 6 a 8 años aprenden cultura y danza hawaiana y a tocar el ukelele. Para los de 8 a 18 hay clases de violín y guitarra. “Es fundamentalmente bluegrass y [música] tradicional, pero hay un par de bandas de rock and roll todos los años también”, añadió ella.San Jorge trabaja también con las iglesias católica y bautista de la comunidad para ofrecer un campamento de familias con música góspel, al cual asistieron 65 niños este verano. El costo es de $50, con la posibilidad de becas. “Si no tienes los $50, puedes pagar lo que quieras”, dijo Mickelson.En los campamentos de Bailando con el Espíritu, los estudiantes toman clases de varios instrumentos, desde guitarra a violín, mandolina, contrabajo y ukelele. Su método de enseñanza usa colores para las cuerdas de los instrumentos. “Cualquier muchacho o muchacha de primaria superior o de la secundaria puede aprender a tocar el violín en una semana porque resulta muy fácil cuando está codificado por colores, y lo mismo con la guitarra”.Los instructores dirigen el campamento durante una semana cada año, pero esperan que sus visitas sean más frecuentes. “Nuestra meta es ir a cada lugar dos o tres veces al año”, señaló ella.Los instructores reciben salario, comida y albergue. A los instructores locales les pagan por hora sus lecciones. “Siempre tenemos al menos dos [maestros], dependiendo del tamaño de la escuela”.Los instructores trabajan con niños de escuela primaria por la mañana, y estudiantes mayores por las tardes. En el fin de semana, los estudiantes actúan en un concierto, usualmente en conjunto con un potlatch o cena en que todos aportan cosas, y que se completa con lecciones de bailes tradicionales y tonadas atabascanas al violín. “Sencillamente celebramos, e intentamos tener un baile comunitario”, explicó Mickelson.Bailando con el Espíritu funciona con músicos y maestros locales y trata de dejar instrumentos en cada escuela de aldea que alberga un campamento. “Nuestra meta es que cada escuela disponga de instrumentos”, añadió.Quieren ver que las personas de la localidad continúen el programa después que ellos se hayan ido, dice ella. “Sé que en muchísimas escuelas, eso es lo que los niños hacen en sus recesos: van y tocan música… Me gustaría ver es a estos músicos locales contratados como auxiliares de los maestros que vayan y trabajen con los niños cuando no estemos allí”.Por lo general la música no es parte del currículo en las escuelas pequeñas, “a menos que dé la casualidad que el maestro sea una persona que sepa de música”.Shelby Fisher-Salmon, es una de los dos estudiantes nativos en la junta de Bailando con el Espíritu, y la única que cursa el último año de secundaria de aproximadamente una docena de estudiantes que asisten a la escuela “Cruikshank” en Beaver, la cual incluye desde kindergarten hasta 12º. Grado, y donde su madre es la directora. Su pueblo natal es rural, una aldea nativa de alrededor de 70 personas a unos 160 kilómetros al norte de Fairbanks.  Ahí se puede llegar por barco, pero la gente usualmente los pequeños aviones Navajo.En Cruikshank, los estudiantes reciben clases de violín y guitarra dos veces por semana a través de una videoconferencia.Fisher-Salmon comenzó a asistir al campamento de Bailando con el Espíritu en su escuela cuando tenía aproximadamente 12 años, y aprendió a tocar la guitarra.“Creo que todo el mundo lo disfruta”, dice ella refiriéndose al campamento. “Cuando Belle viene… usualmente toda la escuela participa”.Bailando con el Espíritu y su misión de edificar la comunidad a través de las lecciones de música para los niños se ha extendido mucho más allá de la diócesis.Un grupo de estudiantes del campamento de verano de Córdova creó una banda, los Bearfoot Bluegrass, que “ha tenido más éxito de todo lo que habríamos soñado”, dijo Mickelson. Fundada en 1999, la banda ganó el Telluride, el certamen de bandas de bluegrass  de Colorado, en 2001. En la actualidad sigue actuando y dirigiendo talleres en toda la nación con el nombre de Bearfoot.La directora del campamento de Córdova, Kate Hamre, de 27 años, tocó en la banda de 1999 a 2010, en la que empezó a los 14 años. Ella dirige un programa con sede en Anchorage que se llama Campamentos de Bluegrass para Niños [Bluegrass Camps for Kids] que enseña música a unos 300 a 350 niños  al año en ocho a 10 campamentos en Alaska y en otras partes del país, incluido Hawái. Ella pasa los veranos en su Alaska natal y enseña durante el año escolar en una escuela privada de niñas en San Francisco.La primera experiencia de Hamre con un campamento de música se produjo en Anchorage con otro programa, el Campamento de Música de las Artes Populares de Alaska [Alaska Folk Arts Music Camp], dirigido por Mary Schallert y auspiciado por la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s Episcopal Church]. Luego se enteró del campamento de Córdova y se unió a un grupo de estudiantes que asistía a ambos.“Aprendí violín y guitarra y bajo y todos esos diferentes instrumentos”, dijo ella. Todos los años, ella espera encontrarse con sus amigos y maestros. “Es una estupenda comunidad en la cual crecer”.Ese es el gran beneficio que Bailando con el Espíritu tiene para los niños, apuntaba ella, resaltando que todavía conserva de amigos a personas con las cuales tocó música cuando tenía 8 o 9 años. “Ante todo, brinda un gran sentido de comunidad con los adultos y con tus iguales. Ser músico es sencillamente algo que siempre tendrás”.Hamre percibe también los beneficios académicos. “Muchísimas personas no se dan cuenta de que la música es muy matemática y creativa al mismo tiempo. Usas tanto el lado izquierdo como el derecho del cerebro”.“Yo creo”, dice Mickelson, “que la música y el arte son dos formas en que los niños desarrollan su autoestima, de manera que puedan tener el valor para enfrentarse a las matemáticas y a la ciencia y a todas esas asignaturas”.Y, al igual que Hamre, ella ve los beneficios sociales. “En este momento y en esta era de la electrónica, con demasiada frecuencia los niños están saliendo y entrando en el correo electrónico y en Facebook y en todos esos jueguitos. Con este programa, estén conectados con sus mayores y están conectados unos con otros de una manera realmente positiva”.Si bien el éxito del programa es difícil de medir, ella ve “la alegría que provoca en la comunidad cuando haces esto”, y agrega. “Sólo puedo decirte cuan reparador ha sido, cuando ha habido un suicidio, que vayamos nosotros con nuestra música”.Es una alegría y una reparación que a ella le gustaría llevar aún más lejos.“Imagino esto realmente como un programa mundial” afirma.– Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

I know it has been an often heated debate in the Anglican community. Am I correct in my understanding that Archbishop Williams was against it? I welcome any information and discussion on the subject. Tags Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Durham Bishop Justin Welby named 105th archbishop of Canterbury This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 The Rt. Rev. Justin Welby. Photo/Bishop Auckland[Episcopal News Service] Following months of anticipation and media speculation, Downing Street confirmed Nov. 9 that the Queen has approved the nomination of Diocese of Durham Bishop Justin Welby as the 105th archbishop of Canterbury.As the 105th archbishop in a succession spanning more than 1400 years, Welby will assume the multi-faceted role as spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, Primate of All England, and bishop of the Diocese of Canterbury.Church of England bishops are appointed rather than elected, with a 16-member Crown Nominations Commission putting forward two names — a preferred candidate and a second candidate — to Downing Street. The U.K. prime minister then seeks approval from the British monarch, who is the supreme governor of the Church of England.Before his ordination to the priesthood in 1992, Welby studied law and history at Cambridge University and then spent 11 years as an executive in the oil industry. After a decade in parish ministry, he was appointed a canon residentiary, and later sub-dean, of Coventry Cathedral. He served as dean of Liverpool Cathedral from 2007-2011.As bishop of Durham, the fourth-most-senior position in the Church of England to which he was consecrated in October 2011, Welby is automatically granted a seat in the House of Lords.Welby, 56, will succeed the Most Rev. Rowan Williams, who will step down at the end of the year after serving as the 104th archbishop of Canterbury since February 2003. Williams has accepted a new post as master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.Welby’s enthronement as 105th archbishop of Canterbury will be held March 21, 2013, in Canterbury Cathedral.Welby is married to Caroline and they have five children, aged 16-27.[An ENS article with reactions to Welby’s appointment and reflections on Williams’ 10-year tenure is available here.]“I don’t think anyone could be more surprised than me at the outcome of this process,” said Welby, according to a Lambeth Palace press release. “It has been an experience, reading more about me than I knew myself. To be nominated to Canterbury is at the same time overwhelming and astonishing. It is overwhelming because of those I follow, and the responsibility it has. It is astonishing because it is something I never expected to happen.“One of the hardest things will be to leave Durham. I work with a group of wonderful senior colleagues and remarkable clergy and lay people. It is an astonishing part of the country, one which as a family we were greatly looking forward to living in for many years. The people are direct, inspiring and wonderfully friendly. In many ways it has been the ancient cradle of British Christianity. It is a place of opportunity and an even greater future than its past.”Williams issued said he is “delighted at the appointment … I have had the privilege of working closely with [Welby] on various occasions and have always been enriched and encouraged by the experience.“He has an extraordinary range of skills and is a person of grace, patience, wisdom and humor. He will bring to this office both a rich pastoral experience and a keen sense of international priorities, for Church and world. I wish him – with Caroline and the family – every blessing, and hope that the Church of England and the Anglican Communion will share my pleasure at this appointment and support him with prayer and love.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said: “I am delighted to hear of Bishop Welby’s appointment as archbishop of Canterbury. He brings knowledge of the immense challenges of the world in which the Anglican Communion seeks to partner in the service of God’s mission to heal and reconcile.”Jefferts Schori noted that Welby has experience of churches in several parts of the Anglican Communion, “which should serve him well. The bishops of The Episcopal Church have met him and shared fruitful conversation, worship, and learning with him during a House of Bishops meeting earlier this year. We also welcomed him to our General Convention in 2009.“I give thanks for his appointment and his willingness to accept this work, in which I know his gifts of reconciliation and discernment will be abundantly tested. May God bless his ministry, shelter his family, and bring comfort in the midst of difficult and lonely discernment and decisions.”President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings told ENS that at every international gathering of Anglicans that she has attended, she has come away with the same conviction — that most of the people in the Anglican Communion are eager “to work together for the sake of the gospel whatever our difference over specific theological points. We need an archbishop of Canterbury who wants to facilitate that cooperation and encourage the partnerships that are waiting to be born.”Jennings said that Welby “is held in high regard” by Episcopalians who know him well.“As a conflict negotiator, he has demonstrated extraordinary courage and unusual skill in persuading people with far greater differences than those within the Anglican Communion to work together and to reconcile,” she said. “This gives me hope that he is the right person for this challenging moment in the Anglican Communion’s history.” Rector Smithfield, NC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT November 13, 2012 at 5:29 pm Donald Jack Newsom wrote: “Then, what is your position on the notion of viewing the Scriptures in historical-critical context?”My answer: from “Living Tradition”,The most basic issue is the question of reality. Catholic faith is an affirmation of the reality of its object. This means that Catholic faith, while it is primarily and per se an affirmation of the dogmas of Catholic faith, is also, secondarily and per accidens, an affirmation of the reality of what is stated in Sacred Scripture rightly understood. Therefore, what seem to be presented in Sacred Scripture as historical accounts are to be defended as historical accounts unless the contrary is proved to be true, both because of the presence of divine inspiration and because what is contained in the biblical accounts is recognized to be in the one continuum of reality that is first known from natural awareness and experience. Central to this whole discussion is the notion of historical reality. We contend that science is science only to the extent that its medium of thought is recognized and defined, and, therefore, that historical science is historical science only to the extent that the historical medium of thought is recognized and defined in the mind of the historian. The frame of reference in the mind of the historian is his historical present. Neo-Patristic exegetes contend that the awareness in the mind of the biblical scholar of the presence of the one true God, of the God who presents Himself in the Sacred Scriptures, is necessary for the scientific interpretation of the Scriptures. Gunkel makes a patronizing reference to the “providence of God” in the final sentence of his Introduction without endorsing the idea, 51 and in his form-criticism every mention of the action of God in history is deemed “mythical.” Patristic exegesis, on the contrary, is built upon the awareness of the presence of God, now and in the past. And neo-Patristic exegesis critically examines and rejects evidences of deism, naturalism, rationalism, and modernism in the mental frameworks of form-critics. Thus, for neo-Patristic researchers, the “criticism” in historical criticism, taken as an acceptable approach, requires study of mental frameworks as well as of biblical texts. Especially to be criticized is the form-critical assumption that supernatural events are “unscientific.” We shall examine whether this presupposition of naturalism is not a confusion of historical method with the special methods of the natural sciences. In the historical rise of the historical-critical school, literary-criticism led to form-criticism through the influence of Hermann Gunkel and others. In the rise of the neo-Patristic school, it is hoped that a healthy criticism of the historical-critical method will lead to a broad acceptance of the traditional Four Senses of Sacred Scripture, with special emphasis on the historical sense. The great thrust of neo-Patristic exegesis derives from the greatly expanded horizon of historical research and methodology, with all of the challenges that this brings to the Patristic approach, and thus, in the opening up of new dimensions of meaning in the sacred text to traditionally oriented exegetes as they meet the challenges presented by modern biblical scholarship.

RukunguNairobi Diocese – Kenya November 9, 2012 at 9:11 pm Mr. Newton, why the deep sadness and the negative tone?? How about giving him the benefit of the doubt? The man hasn’t even been enthroned yet!BISHOP Welby, in my opinion, meant that HE is evolving, as humans do through study/perception/prayer/knowledge/common sense. I used to think these were positive and enlightening traits, especially in matters of religion/spirituality…. Apparently since your life is now ruined, I might have to rethink this…. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Bath, NC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books November 13, 2012 at 2:50 pm Then what do you and the scholarly individual you study Scripture with make of,1. Leviticus 19:19, particularly where it is written “Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.” It is entirely possible that the most prevalent clothing material in current use, cotton polyester, runs afoul of this dictum as not wearing mixed material clothing also spoke to the purity God expected Jews to observe and2. Deuteronomy 21:18-21These are both reminders that this question of historical critical context goes beyond mere popular beliefs. To take Deuteronomy 21:18-21 literally in this day and age would be tantamount to bring an unruly child before the city council, having said council pronounce sentence, then take him out side the city limits or the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction and kill him. In this day and age, law enforcement/judiciary system duties are no longer part of the City Council’s job description as they were in Biblical times. I would recommend that you and your scholarly study partner consult with your local District Attorney regarding the crimes and current procedure for putting a juvenile to death. Bede Parry says: By Matthew DaviesPosted Nov 9, 2012 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Featured Events November 14, 2012 at 8:40 pm I congratulate Bishop Welby and I look forward to a very successful tenure.

You know where this is going and so do I. Either you think the word is the truth or you don’t. The church is subjecting itself to popular opinion and thought..little of which aligns itself with the teachings of Jesus.. in fact …was he not in direct conflict with the lust and self centered world. I deeply love our church as I am sure you do as well, but Jesus and his word is above all the conflict…we are asked to subjugate our lust and worldly pursuits all of which I am part . Why would I give a church leader the benefit of the doubt…when I doubt nothing from the wriiten word of our Bible November 9, 2012 at 6:15 pm It is my hope that the Holy Spirit is alive and well in this decision. He faces many challenges. My prayers for him and his family as they begin this new important ministry. Comments are closed.last_img read more

Rapidísimas

first_imgRapidísimas Por Onell A. SotoPosted Mar 23, 2013 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Al conocerse la elección del papa Francisco, Leo Frade, obispo de la diócesis episcopal  del Sureste de Florida emitió una declaración que dice en parte: “El poder del Espíritu Santo no deja de sorprenderme. Hemos visto una y otra vez como Dios continúa transformando y renovando a su iglesia. Como anglicano me uno a los fieles de la Iglesia Católica Romana  en darle la bienvenida a su nuevo papa. Prometemos nuestras oraciones por el éxito de su misión evangélica alrededor del mundo”.Según el periódico Fohla de Sao Paulo en momentos en que el papa Francisco hablaba de “una iglesia pobre que ayude a los pobres”, Dilma Rousseff, presidenta de Brasil, llegó a la ciudad eterna derrochando dinero. Según el diario la presidenta ocupó 30 habitaciones del lujoso Hotel Westin Excelsior y el personal de menor categoría ocupó 22 habitaciones de un hotel cercano. El diario menciona también que la comitiva brasileña rentó un total de 17 automóviles, que incluye siete autos con chófer, un coche de lujo blindado, varias furgonetas, un camión, dos camionetas para el equipaje y hasta un minibús para una estadía de tres días . Todavía no se sabe el costo de esta “empresa misionera”.En una de las reuniones del Vaticano alguien recordó el buen humor del Beato Juan XXIII cuando dijo “Cualquiera puede ser papa; la prueba de esto es que he llegado a ser uno”.Bartolomé, patriarca ecuménico de Constantinopla, asistió a los eventos de la entronización del papa Francisco la semana pasada. Su visita es histórica por ser la primera vez que el patriarca visita El Vaticano para una ceremonia como ésta desde el Gran Cisma de 1054 en el que se produjo la mutua excomunión que separó al papa —y a la cristiandad de Occidente—, de los patriarcas y la cristiandad de Oriente, especialmente del principal de ellos, el patriarca ecuménico de Constantinopla. La disputa fue por razones de jurisdicción.En Venezuela muchos dicen que Nicolás Maduro, el presidente encargado, es su peor enemigo debido a sus errores en sus discursos y sus herejías. Quizás la más irritante dice que Chávez habló con Jesús en el cielo y le dijo que el arzobispo de Buenos Aires sería un buen papa. ¡¡Y el Señor hizo las gestiones necesarias!!Los biógrafos del difunto presidente Hugo Chávez admiran su facilidad para persuadir a sus seguidores.

Otro es la Iniciativa Iona, cuya estructura es diferente a la de la Escuela “Obispo Kemper”. Tiene su sede en la Escuela Iona de la Diócesis de Texas, pero funciona bajo los auspicios del Seminario episcopal del Sudoeste en Austin, Texas.La iniciativa, que se encuentra en el segundo año de un programa experimental de tres años, incluye a Texas y a otras siete diócesis.Una vez al mes durante 10 meses, los estudiantes se reúnen a lo largo de un fin de semana en su propia diócesis donde reciben instrucción  a través de vídeos y de presentaciones en PowerPoint creadas por los profesores del seminario. Maestros locales orientan los cursos en vídeo y enseñan aspectos prácticos del programa, tales como dirigir el culto. En la actualidad sólo ofrece clases a los que aspiran a la ordenación como diáconos y como sacerdotes no estipendiarios.Mary MacGregor, que dirige la Escuela Iona de la diócesis, dijo que programas como el suyo y como la Escuela “Obispo Kemper” son los que la Iglesia necesita. Ella hizo notar que en la Diócesis de Wyoming, una de las asociadas en Iona, el 90 por ciento de los sacerdotes son bivocacionales, y la necesidad de programas de educación locales no hará más que aumentar, afirmó.“Éste es el movimiento que está progresando en la Iglesia. Habrá más escuelas internas en la Iglesia Episcopal”, dijo. Y si bien el contenido de calidad es esencial, no es el único requisito. “Tenemos una mezcla de calidad, accesibilidad y factibilidad”.– Melodie Woerman es directora de comunicaciones de la Diócesis Episcopal de Kansas.

Las clases durante el actual curso académico incluyen estudios bíblicos, ministerio, teología, anglicanismo, espiritualidad, historia de la Iglesia y ética.Los profesores provienen de las cuatro diócesis e incluyen a instructores con experiencia en un campo en particular. Muchos son clérigos ordenados.Los estudiantes también participan en sesiones informales con clérigos experimentados para explorar el mundo real, aplicaciones prácticas de lo que están aprendiendo. También se turnan el la dirección de los oficios y en la predicación.El costo para los estudiantes que se encaminan por la vía de ordenación es de $1.800 al año, y la escuela sugiere que se comparta por igual entre el estudiante, su parroquia y la diócesis.

La Escuela para el Ministerio “Obispo Kemper” es una corporación sin fines de lucro dirigida conjuntamente por las cuatro diócesis.El deseo de un modelo diferente para la escuela se expresó el año pasado, mientras algunos estudiantes de Kansas Occidental, Misurí Occidental y Nebraska asistían a la Escuela para el Ministerio de Kansas. Los cuatro obispos no tardaron en ver la necesidad de una escuela de propiedad conjunta, para que le resultara posible desarrollarse más allá de lo que una sola diócesis pudiera ofrecer. La escuela de Kansas y otros programas educativos diocesanos se fusionaron en la Escuela “Obispo Kemper”.Cada una de las diócesis hace una contribución económica al funcionamiento de la escuela. La matrícula de los estudiantes también ayuda a financiar el presupuesto de plantel, incluido un salario para el decano, los estipendios de los profesores y el reembolso por el uso de las instalaciones que la escuela utiliza.La junta directiva, que incluye a los cuatro obispos como miembros ex officio,  es responsable de supervisar la vida de la escuela, así como el trabajo del decano y del profesorado. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Educación de alta calidadSi bien la escuela es nueva, la mayoría de los estudiantes van a cursar segundo y tercer años. El programa para sacerdotes dura tres años, y para diáconos, dos. Cada diócesis establece sus propios criterios para poder matricularse en la escuela.Charles Everson, estudiante del primer año de sacerdocio proveniente de la Diócesis de Kansas, descubrió rápidamente que los cursos están concebidos para hacer pensar. Luego de sólo dos fines de semanas de clases, dijo él “¡tengo ante mí una trayectoria difícil y emocionante durante los próximos tres años!”.Bruce Bower es un estudiante de segundo año de la Diócesis de Misurí Occidental que se prepara para ser diácono. Él definió los cursos como “rigurosos” y llamó a los instructores “de primera”. Dijo que asistir a la Escuela “Obispo Kemper” “no significa que los estudiantes tengan que transarse por una educación teológica que sea de alguna manera inferior a la que podrían recibir en otra parte”.La Rda. Carolyn Ballinger es una estudiante de la Diócesis de Kansas Occidental que están cursando su tercer año de sacerdocio y quien fuer ordenada al diaconado en mayo. Ella dijo que los cursos que ha tomado “exceden las ofertas y las demandas” que ella tenía cuando obtuvo su doctorado en humanidades.Pero más allá de la calidad de la instrucción, los estudiantes encomian la comunidad que se ha formado entre ellos. Ballinger dijo que luego de pasar un fin de semana al mes viviendo, comiendo aprendiendo y orando juntos, ella y otros se mantienen en contacto fuera de clases, “pidiendo, dando y recibiendo amistad y aliento”.Bower dijo que un amigo suyo asiste a un seminario episcopal tradicional y que “le había dicho que sentía envidia de la manera en que los estudiantes de la Escuela para el Ministerio “Obispo Kemper” interactuábamos y éramos capaces de desarrollar nuestras relaciones”.Everson afirmó que el aspecto local de la escuela es de una importancia fundamental. “Hay muchos hombres y mujeres llamados al ministerio ordenado… para quienes un diploma de un seminario formal no es una opción viable”.Alison Black, estudiante de segundo año de la Diócesis de Kansas, dijo que “siendo una madre que se queda en casa con tres hijos pequeños, no hay forma de que yo pueda asistir a un seminario tradicional en ningún momento de un futuro cercano”. Ballinger afirmó que el marco local hace la educación teológica accesible a personas de “cualquier clase social, cualquier edad, cualquier nivel de influencia económica y cualquier origen cultural o étnico”. Rector Shreveport, LA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Associate Rector Columbus, GA Explorar la naturaleza del ministerioEl decano de la escuela, Rdo. Andrew Grosso, dijo que el beneficio de contar con cuatro asociados diocesanos es que juntos “toman seriamente el emergente carácter misional del ministerio en la Iglesia de hoy”. Explicó que, en tanto se decidía la estructura de la escuela, algunos asuntos fundamentales —la naturaleza del ministerio y la configuración de la iglesia— adquirieron una relevancia especial.Añadió que la pregunta, ‘¿Cómo formas a un sacerdote?’ conlleva preguntar ‘¿qué apariencia tiene el ministerio cristiano en la Iglesia actual?’. Todo es parte de un contexto mayor”.El enviar a las congregaciones un clero bivocacional y no estipendiario sólo tiene sentido si los laicos entienden que son parte del ministerio en ese lugar, afirmó. Uno de los propósitos de la escuela será “capacitar e inspirar a más personas a participar en otras formas de ministerio”.Los empeños iniciales se han centrado en un currículo con vistas a la ordenación, ya que las cuatro diócesis cuentan con personas dispuestas a comenzar esos estudios. Pero Grosso dijo que las clases también prepararán a los líderes laicos para ser catequistas, evangelistas, ministros de los jóvenes, administradores parroquiales, ministros de servicios comunitarios, líderes del culto y predicadores laicos, entre otros ministerios.

Rob Baldwin, rector de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad, en Lawrence, Kansas, se vale de un banquillo de ordeño para ilustrar las “tres patas” de la teología anglicana durante una clase de identidad anglicana para los estudiantes de la Escuela para el Ministerio “Obispo Kemper”. Foto de Melodie Woerman.[Diócesis Episcopal de Kansas] Las clases ya están en marcha en la Escuela para el Ministerio “Obispo Kemper”, la recién creada casa de estudios que ofrece educación teológica a estudiantes de las diócesis de Kansas, Misurí Occidental, Nebraska y Kansas Occidental. El primer grupo de estudiantes, 35 personas procedentes de las cuatro diócesis, se reunieron por primera vez los días 10 y 11 de agosto en Topeka.Para celebrar la creación de la escuela, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori estará en Topeka el 5 de octubre, donde intervendrá en un foro público sobre la nueva forma de la Iglesia y el rostro cambiante del ministerio. Ella participará luego en un oficio para celebrar la apertura de la escuela y dedicará sus instalaciones, y luego saludará a las personas en una recepción pública.La escuela lleva el nombre del obispo Jackson Kemper, el primer obispo misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal, que fue el obispo organizador cuando cada una de las cuatro diócesis se fundaron en el siglo XIX. Él también estaba comprometido con el valor de la educación teológica local para el desarrollo y fortalecimiento de la Iglesia Episcopal.La escuela se creó a partir de los programas diocesanos existentes a fin de ofrecer educación teológica de alta calidad a personas que se preparan para la ordenación así como a líderes laicos en las congregaciones, todo ello sin tener que asistir a un seminario tradicional,  donde los costos pueden ascender a más de $30.000 por año.Y para los obispos de las diócesis asociadas, ofrece algo fundamental: la capacidad de ofrecer un liderazgo pastoral y sacramental a sus congregaciones.J. Scott Barker, el obispo de Nebraska, dijo que la escuela es, para su diócesis, “la respuesta a una oración”, en parte porque el currículo aborda “la singularidad de la Iglesia en el Medio Oeste”, que incluye montones de pequeñas congregaciones en ciudades y pueblos que se encuentran a muchos kilómetros de distancia.Dean Wolfe, el obispo de Kansas, dijo que el objetivo de la escuela es formar “líderes visionarios, líderes fieles, líderes valientes” para las congregaciones, no importa la diócesis a la  cual sean asignados.Martin Field, obispo de Misurí Occidental, dijo que la escuela proporcionará clérigos “bien formados y capaces” a congregaciones que no pueden afrontar el costo de un sacerdote formado en un seminario. Ayudará también a que esas congregaciones identifiquen a líderes naturales en su propio entorno para enviarlos a la escuela, agregó.Por su parte, Michael Milliken, el obispo de Kansas Occidental, definió a su diócesis como una “zona rural o fronteriza” compuesta de congregaciones muy pequeñas. Esta escuela es “uno de los pocos medios con que contamos para [obtener] una estupenda educación teológica” para los líderes de esas iglesias, afirmó.Field añadió: “Estoy entusiasmado con este proyecto como siempre lo he estado con cualquier proyecto que se emprenda para el mejoramiento de la Iglesia”.

Photo: Jeff March/Diocese of San Joaquin[Episcopal News Service] Diocese of San Joaquin Episcopalians gathered joyously Dec. 1 to welcome a new cathedral dean and to celebrate the first deacon ordinations at St. James Cathedral in Fresno, California, in at least a decade.“We’re calling it a diocesan day of celebration,” San Joaquin Bishop David Rice said. “In the morning we installed the Rev. Ryan D. Newman as cathedral dean, and in the afternoon, we ordained four new deacons.“That’s equally historic for this emerging diocese,” he said. “It’s a diaconate ordination in a place we haven’t had for 10 years, since the schism. And it’s historic that two of the deacons have come from our established school for deacons. This is the first group that has come through our own local process, and we’re delighted about that.”Episcopalians welcomed the Very Rev. Ryan Newman as the first dean of St. James Cathedral in Fresno in a decade on Dec. 1. Photo: Jeff March/Diocese of San JoaquinIn 2007, the former San Joaquin diocese broke away from the Episcopal Church over disagreements about the ordination of women and LGBTQ people, and same-gender blessings. Calling itself the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, the breakaway group attempted to keep the property, including the Fresno cathedral.Those who chose to remain in the Episcopal Church reconstituted the diocese. A series of court battles ensued and, according to Rice, all but one property has been returned to the Episcopal Church.Newman, a Southern California native, said he felt an immediate connection to the passion and energy of Rice, especially “when he told me that the diocese needs someone who’s not afraid to get messy and who likes to rebuild things.”Newman was the rector and headmaster of All Saints’ Church and School in Kaap’a, Kaua’i, in the Diocese of Hawaii, and had no thoughts of moving on – until San Joaquin Canon to the Ordinary Anna Carmichael called him.“I was in a Seattle airport, waiting for a flight,” Newman recalled. “I was on my way to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Ironically, I was preparing to walk the way of St. James. I thought my Camino would end in Spain. Little did I know the journey would take me to St. James in Fresno.”Newman, 42, hails from South Orange County in the Diocese of Los Angeles, and attended St. Margaret’s School in San Juan Capistrano. Ordained a priest in 2003, he served for 11 years as chaplain and director of operations at Campbell Hall a 1,000-student Episcopal school in North Hollywood, before moving to All Saints’, Kaua’i, a historic church he helped to regenerate.Now, he hopes to parlay that experience to St. James Cathedral in Fresno.“Bishop Rice wants to make it a place where it’s not just about worship on Sundays but about what happens between Sundays, about how we become the people of God and church in the world. It’s about getting out there and doing outreach and advocacy and community,” Newman told ENS.Newman also dreams of transforming the cathedral into a center for the arts and education and an “embodiment of this resurrection in the diocese.”‘Moments of resurrection with each passing day’Rice counts the Dec. 1 ordinations among “the moments of resurrection” the diocese experiences daily.“We started a school for deacons about three years ago, and that was a response to changing styles of formation and training,” he said. “We recognized the need for local formation and training in addition to those aspirants who choose to go to the Church Divinity School of the Pacific and other places.”Greg Masztal was ordained Dec. 1 and said becoming a deacon caught him by surprise. “I joined the church 5½ years ago and I didn’t see this happening, … but I am willing to see where I am led,” he told ENS recently.Currently, the full-time auditor serves the community of St. Paul’s, Modesto. “They’ve gone through a lot over the years, and now it’s a growing community,” Masztal said. “I hope to be a part of that and to encourage people, which is part of a deacon’s call.”Masztal, 60, added: “It’s been a long journey. I feel like I’m already doing it. And these ordinations are part of a great celebration that is happening.”Rice agreed. “We are a diocese that continues to experience moments of resurrection with each passing day.”Concluding the court battles represents a significant shift in the diocesan landscape, which will “be different from most dioceses,” he said.“We have concluded all of our litigations with the exception of one, a singular property, St. Columba’s in Fresno,” Rice said. “That case has been brought to the court, and we’re waiting to hear the results of that decision. We are finished after that.”Additionally, the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church has forgiven $6.8 million in loans to the diocese “and that is a gift for which we continue to be exceedingly grateful,” Rice said. “It allows us to continue and to move and emerge in ways we wouldn’t be able to otherwise.”San Joaquin Bishop David Rice ordains deacons for the first time in a decade at St. James Cathedral in Fresno. Kneeling from left, the new deacons are Marilee Muncey, Greg Masztal, Amy Larsen and Terrance Goodpasture. Photo: Jeff March/Diocese of San JoaquinAWE, holy candor, changing the landscapeDespite challenges, the San Joaquin Diocese is “in good heart,” and Rice sees a seismic shift in the landscape.There are numerous inquiries from across the church and around the country to fill upcoming vacancies from those wanting to experience the kind of “liturgical laboratory” represented by the rebuilding efforts.Increasingly, new relationships are being forged, from the voices of the homeless to nonprofit organizations, ecumenical partners and academic institutions.There are other shifts: “Rather than talking about average Sunday attendance, we are talking about AWE – average weekly engagement, an acronym coined by Canon to the Ordinary Anna Carmichael,” Rice said.“It is a commentary on how we emerge and continue to emerge and the larger liturgical work of people has everything to do with those with whom we spend time and how we serve them each day.”Rice cited as an example the number of feeding ministries in the diocese’s 21 worship communities. “What’s important about that is, the ministries have come about because our communities have engaged in conversations with people who live where they live, and they’ve heard expressions of ‘we don’t have food.’”There is HUB – Helping Urban Cyclists – which serves homeless residents by providing bicycles for transportation. There is a warming center for the homeless of Visalia. And there is a diocesan immigration task force “engaged in really substantive conversations about refugees and our sisters and brothers who have that status and how we can be of assistance and a voice where sometimes they are voiceless,” Rice said.“We believe the church has a clear mandate to be involved wherever people are marginalized or typically invisible.”The diocese still “travels light,” with minimal staff – and there are challenges. “We are endeavoring to address the things we know don’t work,” Rice said. “We use holy candor all the time. We are looking for builders who are building relationships, who are entrepreneurial, who are not risk-averse. It’s hard work, given the landscape.”Newman said that passion and energy and vision drew him back to California because Rice “is changing the metrics about vitality.”“It’s not just about how many butts in the pews, but how you’re engaging community in meaningful and tangible ways,” Newman said. “It’s the only way that this diocese and the individual congregations will succeed long term and have sustainability.”– The Rev.

Photo: Trinity Episcopal Church[Diocese of Missouri] Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Louis’ Central West End is the first site in Missouri to be named to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) for its significance in LGBTQ history. It is the first and only such site in Missouri and the only Episcopal parish in the country so honored. Trinity is recognized in particular for the years 1969 to 1993, which include its early support of gay rights, its embrace of LGBTQ parishioners and community members, and its compassionate response to the first AIDS patients in the 1980s.The recognition of Trinity is part of an effort by the U.S. Department of the Interior to document a more complete story of the gay rights movement, a project announced in May 2014 by Secretary Sally Jewell. The NRHP is the U.S. federal government’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects deemed significant to American history and worthy of preservation. Currently there are 93,500 sites across the country, with LGBTQ sites numbering less than 20.“Trinity, as a progressive Episcopal church, continues today as an energetic supporter of LGBTQIA+ worshippers,” said the Rev. Jon Stratton, rector of the church. “We are honored by the NRHP recognition and wear this designation proudly.”A formal dedication ceremony, including the installation of a plaque on the exterior of the church at 600 N. Euclid Ave., will be held on Saturday, June 13. Bishop-elect Deon Johnson, whose ordination is planned for April 25, will be an honored guest and speaker. Johnson will be the first openly gay bishop to serve in the Diocese of Missouri.“Trinity’s longtime support for the LGBTQIA+ community dates back to its serving as the meeting space of St. Louis’ first gay rights organization, The Mandrake Society, in 1969,” said Steven Brawley, founder of the LGBT History Project in St. Louis.The NRHP designation came after a concentrated period of reflection, recollection and research by members of the church and those involved in the preservation of St. Louis’ early gay and lesbian history.Aiding the application process were longtime Trinity parishioners who are keepers of parish records and institutional memory for the years cited in the NRHP designation – Ellie Chapman, wife of the late Trinity rector Rev. William Chapman; Etta Taylor, church archivist; and Jym Andris, community historian. Their work was supplemented by Ian Darnell, curatorial assistant for the LGBTQ Collection at The Missouri History Museum, and Steven Brawley.University of Kansas professor Katie Batza wrote the application as an extension of a current book project and as part of her ongoing work with the National Park Service LGBT Heritage Initiative. She said that as the application took shape, Trinity Church’s ties to the LGBTQ community were inspirational.“It was encouraging to see how committed Trinity was to the rights of all of its gay and lesbian parishioners at a time when these rights largely were unknown to the mainstream,” she said. “The first Mandrake Society meeting at Trinity was one of a handful of local, national and global political actions and protests in 1969 – including the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village – that marked the start of a new civil rights movement.”Trinity Episcopal Church, founded in 1855, has stood at the corner of Euclid and Washington avenues since 1935. Trinity is urban, socially progressive and Anglo-Catholic in its worship. Its rector is 35-year-old Jon Stratton, a social justice activist involved with the Clean Missouri campaign and a member of the leadership team at Missouri Jobs with Justice.– Michael Shepley is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church.
