House of Bishops begins historic meeting in Taiwan


first_img Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem September 22, 2014 at 9:25 pm Global understanding is invaluable and I applaud it. But it is a shame that essentially no grants, aid or financial support exists for parish clergy (i.e. non Bishops) to undertake such travels, such ministry, such discovery. These wonderful experiences and opportunities are only available to the very select few. This makes me sad. September 17, 2014 at 4:39 pm We accuse members of Congress of going on expensive junkets. And this one for the bishops is costing how much? Despite all the PR jargon, it sounds like a huge expenditure of money that could have been far better spent in other ways. There are lots of “green pastures” needing attention back here in the good old U.S. Bishops attending the Episcopal Church House of Bishops meeting in Taipei, Taiwan pose for a group photo on Sept. 17 outside the historic Grand Hotel, site of the meeting. It was 97 degrees at the time of the photo session, which considering the 50 percent humidity, felt like 109. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Taipei, Taiwan] In a historic year for the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Taiwan, the House of Bishops has come to this city to “learn of greenness in different pastures,” in Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori’s words.The theme of the Sept. 17-23 fall Taiwan meeting is “expanding the apostolic imagination” and the bishops will explore the mission and ministry of the Diocese of Taiwan. In addition, bishops and others from the Anglican Church in Hong Kong, Japan, Pakistan, the Philippines and Korea will discuss with the house the theological context and mission challenges their provinces face.After the meeting ends a number of bishops are heading to Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines or Korea to continue learning about the mission and ministry of the Anglican Churches there.The Diocese of Taiwan is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. The bishops agreed to meet here at Taiwan Bishop David Jung-Hsin Lai’s invitation.Diocese of Taiwan Bishop David Jung-Hsin Lai says he worked for eight years to bring an Episcopal Church House of Bishops meeting to his diocese. The meeting began Sept. 17 and runs until Sept. 23. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ Episcopal News ServiceDuring the house’s opening session on Sept. 17, Lai thanked the bishops, many of whom had traveled as much as 24 hours to get to Taipei, for making the effort to come, saying that his six-year-old dream of having the House of Bishops come to his diocese had come true.“You come here to share, to learn, to strengthen your wisdom and knowledge,” he said.The entire diocese has prayed at 9 p.m. every day for 40 days for the success of the House of Bishops meeting, according to Lai.He acknowledged that many of the bishops were feeling jet-lagged after their travels and he jokingly told them that now they know how he has felt at every House of Bishops meeting since his election in 2000.Jefferts Schori had said during a news conference at the end of the last House of Bishops meeting in March that Lai’s invitation “seemed like a remarkable opportunity for the bishops in this church to learn something about the Asian context in which the church has relationships, and also increasingly from which other parts of the Episcopal Church are receiving migrants.”Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou welcomes the Episcopal Church House of Bishops Sept. 17 to his country during a reception at the Grand Hotel in Taipei. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ Episcopal News ServiceTaiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou told a reception on the evening of Sept. 17 (local time) that Chinese tradition marks time in 60 year periods and thus the Diocese of Taiwan has completed one cycle and is embarking on a new one “that foretells an unlimited future.”“So the Episcopal Church couldn’t have picked a better year to hold a House of Bishops in Taiwan,” he said. “Your choice shows the importance you place upon your congregations here and upon my country. For this, I am grateful.”Ma said he wanted to express personally his “deepest respect and thanks” for the way that the Episcopal Church has “actively preached the gospel” through service to its communities both in Taiwan and around the world.The Taiwanese president then outlined his efforts toward turning his country into a peacemaking nation and one known for providing international humanitarian aid rather than receiving it, based on the biblical call to love your neighbor as yourself.The House of Bishops’ opening Eucharist earlier in the day marked the feast day of Hildegard of Bingen. Jefferts Schori noted in her sermon that Hildegard used the concept of viriditas and its sense of the fecundity of the earth and the soul to teach people about the “blazing fire of creativity at the heart of God.” The presiding bishop likened viriditas to Jesus’ call to abundant life.Where, she asked the bishops, do they encounter viriditas and “what creative ferment engages and transforms you?”“This Episcopal Church is in the throes of creative ferment, yearning to find a new congruence that will discover emerging light in new soil and refreshed growth in the plantings of former years,” she said. “Our gathering here will offer opportunities to learn of greenness in different pastures and, God willing, to transform us to discover abundance and possibility in more familiar ones.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori leads a prayer Sept. 17 during a reception at the end of the opening day of the Episcopal Church House of Bishops meeting in Taipei.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ Episcopal News ServiceHistory of Anglican and Episcopal Churches on TaiwanAnglicanism has been on the island of Taiwan since at least 1895 after the island was ceded to the Empire of Japan at the end of the First Sino-Japanese war.From then until 1945, when Japan was defeated in World War II, the Nippon Sei Ko Kai (Anglican Church in Japan) built churches in Taiwan and held services for its Japanese citizens. Taiwan was part of the NSKK’s Diocese of Osaka. The nationalist government confiscated most of those buildings after the Japanese left and gave them to other denomination.Episcopal Church chaplains came to serve American military personnel that were based here after the Japanese surrender. As the Episcopal Church grew, it came under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Honolulu (later the Diocese of Hawaii). The church also took pastoral care of the former Chinese Anglican Church members who had come to Taiwan from Mainland China in 1949 with Chinese Nationalists who left in after the Chinese Communist Party defeated the Nationalist army.From 1954 to 1960, the Episcopal Church in Taiwan was under the supervision of Honolulu Bishop Harry S. Kennedy as part of the pastoral care of American Armed Forces in the Pacific.Kennedy remained the bishop-in-charge and Honolulu Bishop Suffragan Charles P. Gilson became bishop-in-residence in Taiwan in 1961 when the island became a missionary diocese after the NSKK handed over ministry here to the Episcopal Church.In 1988, the diocese achieved full diocesan status. Episcopalians in Taiwan renewed their Anglican connection with Japan in 2005 when the diocese entered into a companion relationship with the NSKK Diocese of Osaka.The Diocese of Taiwan exists in country of 23.34 million people, less than 5 percent of who call themselves Christian, according to the diocese’s Friendship Magazine. The diocese has a history of “gradual inculturation and integration” moving from a membership of Mainland China Anglicans and American military personnel to one with more Taiwanese people.The diocese has gained members in the 10 years ending in 2012 (the latest year for which figures are available here. The diocese had 1,176 members in that year compared to 975 in 2002, according to this report, and Friendship Magazine says it now serves roughly 2,000 members. The average Sunday attendance in 2012 throughout the diocese’s 16 congregations was 687.The diocese also includes St. John’s University with an enrollment of slightly more than 6,000, eight parish kindergartens and a number of outreach centers.The Episcopal Church includes worshiping communities in 17 countries, including the United States, Micronesia (Guam and Saipan), Taiwan, Honduras, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands (both U.S. and British), Puerto Rico and, by way of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Austria.Also on the bishops’ agendaOn Sept. 18, the bishops will divide themselves among Church of the Good Shepherd in Taipei, St. James Church in Taichung, Trinity & St. Stephen’s churches in Keelung and St. John’s University in Tam Sui. On Sunday, Sept. 21, bishops and their spouses and partners, and others present for the meeting will worship at either Church of the Good Shepherd and St. John’s Cathedral in Taipei or Advent Church in Tam Sui. They will return to Taipei in the late afternoon for a session aimed at processing their experiences.The evening of Sept. 21 will also include a closed “fireside chat,” meant for the presiding bishop and the bishops alone.While in Taipei, the bishops are also scheduled to receive briefings on the work of the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church, which recently released a letter to the church outlining the structural changes it will recommend to the 2015 meeting of General Convention. Bishop members of the A050 Task Force on the Study of Marriage and the Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop will also discuss the work of those groups to date. The latter briefing will be held in closed session, according to the meeting schedule.The bishops also plan a “town hall”-style session with the presiding bishop and a formal business session on Sept. 23.The meeting is taking place at the Grand Hotel in Taipei. Some bishops are blogging from the meeting about their visit to Taiwan. Others are tweeting during the meeting using #HOBFall14. Those tweets can be read here.— The Rev.

My family and I lived in Taipei 1981-86 and worshipped at Good Shepherd Church. Our daughter was married there, one son was born there and another died there, so Taiwan has important memories for us. We are very proud that our former rector John Chien became the first native-born bishop of Taiwan. Once known to the West as Formosa, the Republic of China on Taiwan has been a staunch ally of the United States in spite of being ‘de-recognized’ in 1979 as the price for US diplomatic relations with mainland China (the Peoples Republic). I hope by the time their visit is over that the Episcopal Bishops come to appreciate our far-flung Episcopal lands, and this bastion of Chinese culture in particular. I personally predict that the visit will change the lives of many of them. September 18, 2014 at 1:26 am Perhaps this meeting can open additional pathways for grassroots engagement of membership of the global Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion. By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Sep 17, 2014 Rector Collierville, TN TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK September 21, 2014 at 1:38 am I am glad that the House of Bishops (HoB) of The Episcopal Church (ECUSA) has its meeting in Taiwan, the diocese of which belongs to Province 8. It is vital that our leaders – ECUSA is not a local congregational faith community, but a church led by a body of apostolic successors – to understand the peculiar cultural and social environment of each diocese within their jurisdiction – this is the catholic aspect of ECUSA. The abundance gained by the HoB through their person-to-person interactions with the locals, from the President of the Republic of China down to the parishioners is invaluable. (Best things in life cannot be measured by money!) I sincerely hope that this meeting will enrich and enable ECUSA – mostly residing in the USA, but her most populous dioceses being that of Haiti – to live the Gospel in serving the humanity she encounters everywhere.The Diocese of Taiwan being a part of ECUSA is an historical and political consequence of World War II and the war between the Chinese Communists and the Chinese Nationalists. Had the Nationalists won, the Diocese of Taiwan would belong to Zhong Hua Seng Kong Hui (中華聖公會 or The Chinese Holy Catholic Church; 聖公會 appears in the name of both the Japanese and Korean Anglican Church, only pronounced differently), which existed before WWII. The Chinese Church benefited immensely from missionaries like late Bishop Samuel Isaac Joseph Schereschewsky in the late 19th Century, who translated the Bible into Chinese and founded St. John’s University in Shanghai, which produced greats like architect I.M. Pei. But history turned out to be otherwise and apparently none of her bishops retreated to Taiwan, hence, The Anglican Church there has to be restarted by the American Church. The St. John’s University in Taiwan is the named after the university in Shanghai. Soon after their rule over the Chinese mainland, the Communists re-organized all Christian churches into the Patriotic Catholic Church and the Three-self Church (once figure-headed by the Anglican Bishop of Nanjing), both under the direct supervision of the Communist government. I am glad that ECUSA re-established the Episcopal Church in Taiwan and that she values it sufficiently by having her HoB meeting there after 60 years. Let’s keep ECUSA holy, catholic and apostolic!

Province 8 exists in 11 time zones; add the additional 3 of TEC and you see how far and rich the ministries of over a 100 languages and cultures that make up the partnerships for mission and ministry that shape us as a global Church. September 18, 2014 at 7:41 pm So no one in the Episcopal Church has heard of the word “videoconference?” I just hope that the bishops don’t issue any pious declarations about what “we” need to do to alleviate “climate change.” Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Brad Howard says: Ke Chiang Hsieh says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Dorothy Leland says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Comments (13) Tony Price says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Smithfield, NC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit an Event Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL September 19, 2014 at 5:43 pm Let’s waste money sending bishops on a vacation by calling it a conference!

School Of Hard Knocks 2011 – Episode 2


first_imgTuesday Mar 29, 2011 School Of Hard Knocks 2011 – Episode 2 The first episode of this year’s School of Hard Knocks seems to have gone down quite nicely here, so rather than delay things further, this is the second episode of the thoroughly watchable rugby show. In episode one we were introduced to the show as they did some recruitment for players, which wasn’t as straight forward as they’d have thought. In fact it was quite a challenge at times. This week, in episode 2, we learn a bit more about some of the personal stories behind the players. A visit to see Mark Prince turns out to be quite inspirational for many of the guys, as it was last year when Prince was visited in his boxing studio. This time it’s more about the talk, but he also pushes them to their limits with some work outs and a motivational chat that proves to be life changing for many of the troubled youngsters. One of the highlights of the show is when some of last year’s participants return to give a talk on how staying in the program turned out to be one of the best things that has happened to them, with things turning around in their lives, including now playing rugby regularly. :: Related Posts :: School Of Hard Knocks 2011 – Episode 1 Time: 25:16 Note: Thanks to Sky Sports ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error School of Hard Knocks Related Articles 384 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 4, The… 386 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 3 389 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 2 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgApril 19 — The explosion of unemployment applications during the COVID-19 crisis underscored the vicious class contradictions in the United States and showed that the billionaire ruling class has the upper hand in the government apparatus and in directing the economy.Not even in the 1930s Great Depression did such a leap in the number and rate of jobless people occur. In the last four weeks, more than 22 million people, or nearly 13 percent of the total labor force, tried to file for unemployment insurance. By April’s end, the unemployment rate could top 20 percent.Official unemployment figures omit the undocumented, those forced to work “off the books,” so-called “discouraged workers,” and those who, because of extra red tape based on their part-time or “independent contractor” gig worker status, gave up applying.On March 27, Congress passed and Trump signed the so-called stimulus or CARES Act, allocating $2.2 trillion to counter the effects of the coronavirus and the stock market collapse.The wealthiest members of the ruling class and the biggest firms made sure they got stimulated. Congress approved $500 billion to bail out major U.S. corporations. The pro-business administration distributes this, keeping its friends and sponsors happy.The act earmarked another $350 billion for bank loans to help small and midsize businesses survive the crisis. Because most banks would only loan to businesses that had already borrowed from them, many firms which applied got nothing, especially “minority-owned businesses.” The $350 billion ran out in two weeks, and most was eaten up by local affiliates of hotel chains.And for the workers?Unemployed workers were supposed to get their usual check plus $600 a week for four months. Every adult would also receive a one-time payment of $1,200, depending on income, with $500 for dependent children under 16 years old.Some of that money reached some workers. But the 22 million applying for state unemployment benefits during only four weeks overwhelmed understaffed bureaus, many with outdated computer technology. This is holding up both regular payments and the extra $600. Part-time, gig and tipped workers are also covered under the CARES Act, but all who have applied have faced additional bureaucratic hangups.The $1,200 is supposed to be distributed by the IRS to tax filers. But there were software glitches. If, like many people, you filed with Turbotax or H&R Block, such a glitch may have held up your money.About half the workers in the U.S. live paycheck to paycheck with no savings. Having these payments delayed can force workers to miss rent or food or mortgage payments and create a personal disaster. To add insult to injury, payments made by check could take months — and, adding further delays, at his insistence Donald Trump’s name will be on the memo line. (Cash it anyway.)What is less obvious is that the bosses also benefit from the promise of unemployment payments. They can lay off or furlough workers instead of keeping them on the payroll with full or partial paid sick leave, using the beefed-up unemployment payment as an excuse to send workers home while avoiding responsibility for their economic well-being.Workers can fight, tooIf anyone reading this has been unable to get the payments promised, they should know that this money belongs to them. No one should give any of it up. They should keep trying to get it even if they have to survive by some other means in the short term.The bosses got the most out of the CARES Act. But the workers can still fight back. The COVID-19 crisis has shown that workers are essential. Not only the medical, food, transit, delivery and maintenance workers who have been carrying the weight and who are essential to life. But all workers, who are essential because their labor produces all the wealth in society and the owners can’t get rich without them.The Amazon workers, with their wildcat strikes, showed the potential of workers’ power. Can these actions spark a reawakening of the working class, who are forced to fight these days just to survive? When work starts up again — and it should only be with protective equipment and every precaution — it will be with workers who know they are essential to the functioning of this society.Among the 10 socialist demands Workers World Party raised to meet the COVID-19 crisis are the following three: “Full pay, benefits and guaranteed income for all; food, housing, medical supplies and utilities, including internet for all; suspend rent, evictions, mortgages, utility shutoffs and ALL debt.” And no bureaucratic glitches!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


City council approves new definition of ‘single housekeeping unit’

If the unit is rented, all residents over the age of 18 have chosen to jointly occupy the entire premises of the dwelling unit, under a single written lease with joint use and responsibility for the premises.”City Councilwoman Ann Zadeh said that it was important to clarify the term because there was no set definition already established.“When you have undefined terms in an ordinance, it can be confusing,” Zadeh said.The zoning commission drafted the new definition last month after a previous amendment would have put severe limitations on who is able to rent houses throughout the city.The clauses in the previous definition that were not approved included a restriction on locks or deadbolts on any interior doors of the house, significant changes in number of residents over a 12-month period and members using a different address for legal registration. Also, sharing the house couldn’t be for temporary, seasonal, convenient or economic reasons.Zadeh also said she hopes the clarification will help build positive relationships between TCU students who rent houses and residents living in the neighborhood.“The people who live in that area choose to because of the energy it brings.” Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Trump to appear at Fort Worth Convention Center Linkedin Twitter Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Fort Worth to present development plan for Berry/University area near TCU Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ ReddIt The109: senior minister at University Christian Church announces resignation Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth Firefighters Charities posts signs for drowning prevention month Previous articleNew area restaurant caters to students and surrounding communityNext articleTexas Secretary of State speaks to students about voting Joey McReynolds RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more
