It would be a meaningful and substantial response to the scale of human suffering we see daily.”The bishops tell Mr Cameron that they will help the resettlement by encouraging their churches to provide welcome, housing and foster care to refugees.In their letter they also called for the creation of a National Welcome and Resettlement Board, similar to those established by the Government in response to past refugee crises in the 1950s and 1970s.Such a board has now been established by civil society groups Citizens UK and Caritas. It has drawn together a wide group of people including the Bishop of Durham, the Rt Revd Paul Butler, who chairs the group. Other members include the Rt Revd Pat Lynch, of the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales, the Revd Lynn Green, general secretary of the Baptist Union, Rabbis Danny Rich and Laura Janner-Klausner, representing liberal and reform Judaism, Jehangir Malik, of the Islamic Relief charity, and members of the Syrian community within the UK.“The Archbishop of York recently said that the current situation has rightly been described as a refugee crisis but it is also a time of opportunity for us as a country and for our wider continent,” Bishop Butler said. “The opportunity before us is to rise above narrow self-interest, however defined, and to embrace the highest parts of our humanity.“We recognise that both the Prime Minister and his Government responded to calls from the country for there to be a programme of resettlement and we are grateful to him for responding to those calls.“However, there is a real urgency to this issue with those increasingly being forced from their land as their homes are literally bombed into the ground. As the fighting intensifies, as the sheer scale of human misery becomes greater, the Government’s response seems increasingly inadequate to meet the scale and severity of the problem.“It is disheartening that we have not received any substantive reply despite an assurance from the Prime Minister that one would be received. There is an urgent and compelling moral duty to act which we as bishops are offering to facilitate alongside others from across civil society.”Speaking in the House of Commons on Monday afternoon, Mr Cameron told MPs: “No one has more respect for the bishops than me, but on this occasion I think they are wrong.”He said that it was right for the British government to take 20,000 people from the refugee camps rather than take asylum seekers that have already made their way to European countries; saying that this approach would encourage more people to make the dangerous journey.And he challenged the bishops to “make a very clear statement” on the Millenium Development Goal commitment for countries to commit to spending 0.7 per cent of GDP to development aid. “We have done this, how many other countries have?” Mr Cameron said; as he called on the bishops to speak out to other countries.And the Prime Minister said that he wanted to “work with the bishops to make sure we provide the warmest possible welcome” to those refugees that are resettled in the UKClick here to read the full text of the bishops’ letter and a list of signatories.

This week, ENS is running a “Called to Common Mission” series celebrating 15 years of Episcopal-Lutheran full communion.[Episcopal News Service] One of the oldest Episcopal-Lutheran congregations began with a handshake among bishops. The goodwill sentiment still guides Epiphany Lutheran-Episcopal congregation in Valdez, Alaska.Located in Prince William Sound, the town of Valdez has a population of about 4,000. The nearest town with an Episcopal church is 250 miles away. Although there are 50 congregations in the Diocese of Alaska, most are very small village churches. Only a handful of seminary-trained clergy serve in the diocese.“I tell the congregation all the time that they are what the church is going to look like in 20 or 30 years,” said the Rev. Christina Mauntel, pastor of the congregation. “We have only one paid staff person. The ladies clean the church, and everyone works together to keep it maintained.  We have very strong laity who know how to lead. They aren’t strongly bound to one denomination or another, but they are committed to each other.”According to longtime members, the union began when the Episcopal congregation in Valdez fell apart for some reason. The priest at the time approached the Lutheran pastor and talked about joining forces. The conversation carried on with the bishops, who approved a merger in 1979 – 22 years before the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America officially joined in full communion.The merged congregation used the Episcopal building and paid nominal rent for the first few years; eventually, said Steve Newcomer, president of the congregation’s council, the building was deeded to the Lutherans.Legally, the congregation is Lutheran. But in every other sense, they are a merged congregation, Newcomer said.Having a merged church “has never been an issue for any of us who go there,” said Newcomer, who’s been attending Epiphany since he moved to Valdez in 1994. “I’ll be honest: I went to church here for a decade before I knew who was Episcopalian and who was Lutheran. … Our mission is to be a welcome place for all Christians. We try very hard to be accepting of whoever walks in the door.”This radical hospitality is deeply rooted in the congregations. Both Mauntel and Newcomer recalled a sign in the basement that promoted the church as a place where all are welcome to gather and praise God. Over the years, Episcopal, Methodist, American Baptist, Presbyterian, Disciples of Christ and other denominational groups have all met and worshiped in Epiphany’s building.“We don’t lock our (church) doors,” said Newcomer. “We want people who seek shelter to be able to use our building. We let any group that’s not out to make a profit use our church. We’re known as the church in town where everyone is welcome.”Even though she had never stepped foot in Alaska, the ecumenical nature of Epiphany appealed to Mauntel when she considered the congregation as her first call after seminary. A Lutheran pastor, she is finding joy and challenge in learning more about Episcopal traditions and polity.For instance, the Episcopal Church is stricter than the Lutherans when it comes to who can administer the sacrament of Holy Eucharist, said Mauntel. This has led to an interesting situation: one of the Episcopal lay leaders of the church is licensed to administer the sacraments in Lutheran worship but cannot preside in an Episcopal setting.Priscilla Gregg has lived her whole life in Valdez and attended the Episcopal church as a child and adult. She was part of the Episcopal congregation when it merged with the Lutheran church.“Initially there were some challenges,” she said. “But we decided early on to come together as a family. Our focus over the years has been that we are not two separate bodies, but we are one body.”She hopes that other congregations around the country will look at mergers as an opportunity.“The No. 1 thing is for them to look at where they’re alike, not where they’re different,” said Gregg. “And don’t be afraid. There will be changes, but you can work through them together and come out stronger.”– Richelle Thompson is deputy director and managing editor of Forward Movement.

The note about the difference between licensing a lay person for the Episcopalians illustrates for me the lack of flexibility at the diocesan level. We should be facilitating these kinds of partnerships not hampering them with canons and procedures that are meant for a church of 30 years ago. We Episcopalians like to tell the stories of missionary bishops when most of the time the mission work is done by congregations.

In new coalition of religious leaders and scientists, Massachusetts bishops…

first_imgIn new coalition of religious leaders and scientists, Massachusetts bishops declare climate change an emergency Rector Shreveport, LA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID A group of faith leaders and scientists hold a press conference on May 23 to announce a joint appeal on climate action. Photo: Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts[Episcopal News Service] Bishop Alan Gates of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts and Bishop Doug Fisher of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts joined Cardinal Seán O’Malley of the Archdiocese of Boston and other local faith leaders and scientists on May 23 for the release of a joint appeal for action on climate change.More than 500 leaders from religious and scientific communities in Massachusetts have endorsed the Faith and Science Joint Appeal for Climate Action, which declares, “Climate change is an ecological and moral emergency that impacts all other aspects of our shared lives and requires us to work together to protect our common home.”The statement says, “All of us … must do our utmost to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to protect our communities from the catastrophic impacts of climate change. We especially call upon our political representatives to address the climate crisis with the boldness and urgency it requires, with substantive and immediate action.”The release of the joint appeal is a significant first step in an extraordinary, even unprecedented, alliance between religion and science. Initiated by Phil Duffy, president of the Woods Hole Research Center, who reached out to O’Malley, this emerging coalition of faith leaders and scientists intends to give a robust push to the effort of preserving a livable planet.As I wrote in a February blog post after attending the first meeting of religious leaders and scientists, which was held at the Pastoral Center of the Archdiocese of Boston, “Such a partnership has enormous potential in this perilous time. In fact, such a partnership may be not just desirable, but even essential. Given the massive disruption of our global climate that is now underway, we need to hear from scientists, who have made it abundantly clear that continuing to burn fossil fuels will lead in a very short time to climate catastrophe. We also need to hear from spiritual and religious leaders, who can give us the inspiration, motivation, and moral courage to change course and to create a more just and life-sustaining society.”The joint appeal was released on the third anniversary of the publication of “Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home,” the landmark encyclical written by Pope Francis. “Laudato Si’” is addressed to “every person living on this planet” and calls for our urgent response to “the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor.”Fisher commented that, “As followers of Jesus, we seek to build a society that is marked by mercy, justice, and hope. The only way to love God and our neighbor is to preserve the conditions that allow life on Earth to flourish, which begins with a habitable climate. Our emerging coalition of faith and science illuminates a basic truth: climate disruption is not only a scientific issue, but also a deeply spiritual and moral issue.”Gates commented, “This coalition is a strong rebuttal of three all-too-commonly-held fallacies: that faith and science do not align (they do!); that climate change is a partisan political issue (it is not!); and that we have plenty of time to figure out solutions to this crisis (we don’t!). I am grateful for the opportunity to move beyond these misjudgments and get on with the work that our stewardship of God’s Creation demands.”Another religious leader who attended the May 23 press conference stepped forward to offer a few impromptu, impassioned remarks. The Rev. Jim Antal, who leads the Massachusetts Conference, United Church of Christ (and who, with Fisher, oversees my ecumenical appointment as missioner for creation care), pointed out that religious communities have plenty of room for improvement when it comes to raising awareness about the urgency of stabilizing our planetary climate. How often do we preach about climate change? How often do we give our congregations opportunities to learn climate science and to discuss the issue from a religious and spiritual perspective? He cited the latest research from the Yale Program on Climate Communication (“Climate Change and the American Mind: March 2018”), which shows that although 70 percent of Americans understand that climate change is real and largely caused by human activities, 65 percent of Americans never talk about it. And only 13 percent consider climate change to be a religious issue.Now that the joint appeal has been issued, members of our emerging coalition of faith and science are meeting May 30 to discuss next steps. I view this initiative as strong encouragement to Episcopal congregations to learn about climate science, to engage in conversations about climate change as a moral and spiritual concern, and to take effective action. In order to protect “our common home” and to break our dependence on fossil fuels, Americans need both head and heart. Facts and reason alone will not motivate us to change course; we also need stories, prayer, and ceremonies, the power of imagination and a vision of hope. Together with scientists, we can speak with one voice about the sacredness of God’s Creation and the moral imperative to protect it.— The Rev.

This is despite the false threat of an impending ice age reported by scientists in the 1970’s, and the Climate-Gate Scandal that revealed some scientists were “cooking their data” to support the global warming theory for their own research funding purposes. Addressing climate change should not be a political or even a religious debate—it is a national security and quality of life issue. When Religious Leaders claim that climate change as a “moral and spiritual concern,” they risk watering down the science and can make its proponents sound more like religious zealots than knowledgeable thinkers. The appeal should be to common ground, rather than demonizing or belittling those who are not passionate believers that climate change is an imminent threat. Whether we believe in climate change or not, most of us, liberal and conservative, can agree that clean, renewable energy sources improve air and water quality, reduce pollution, and promote our national security by reducing dependence upon foreign oil and unregulated power sources that have to be built on the other side of our borders.Mandating arbitrary green house reductions that may be economically punitive will not work. In 2009, the Episcopal Church adopted the “Genesis Covenant,” an admirable and progressive promise to reduce the carbon footprint of all Church facilities by 50% within 10 years. Members were asked to sign on to a similar personal commitment to reduce their personal carbon footprint by 50%. How has the Genesis Covenant been working out? I have not seen ENS or the Leadership issue a progress report card on its success with the deadline only 1 year away. How many churches now have solar panels? How many church leaders use planes and combustion engine automobiles (fossil fuels) to travel to their political action committee meetings and conventions? The reality is that artificial “reductions” in use of fossil fuels are meaningless if not based upon economic feasibility. The conversation needs to be joined by leading economists and industry leaders—scientists can identify the problem, politicians can pontificate, and religious leaders can pray, but thank God we also have industry leaders and financial institutions who are the doer’s and financiers of actual solutions. Make “Going Green” profitable, and we will create jobs here in America rather than destroy them. Provide land grants and tax waivers to companies who manufacture “green” products when they locate in the cities within the “rust belt” or other depressed areas. Incentivize investments in renewable energy with tax breaks and government subsidies. Build more dams as well as solar plants. Solar power plants may not be feasible in cold climate States, and the “inconvenient truth” is that hydroelectric power, although damaging to nature in the area where a dam is constructed, is a clean, renewable, dependable and efficient source of electrical power when compared to the alternatives of nuclear power generators and fossil fuel power plants. Electric cars are only low-carbon if the electricity sources that charge them are also low carbon.

Who came up with that one ? Why don’t Commander Curry and his minions concentrate less on protesting Trump, the vapid Paris Climate Accords and more on saving souls – much like all the African bishops have done; the very same evangelical African bishops who have lost fellow Christians in their midst killed as a direct result (spoken by the muslims in their midst) of ECUSA LGBT views. Rector Smithfield, NC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH May 29, 2018 at 6:18 pm A little history may be helpful here. Previous glaciaton covered a strip across Washington, Idaho, Montana, most of North and South Dakota, a strip down eastern Nebraska, all of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, northern Ohio, all of New York and New England. Most of this glaciation existed only 10,000 years ago. It all disappeared before Al Gore and the Episcopal Church were on the scene to preserve it. All the result of NATURAL, albeit complicated, causes of climate change. It seems somehow presumptuous to now claim that we have the know-how and technology to interfere with this process in any meaningful way. The millions of dollars now being spent and to be spent supporting the climate change industry could actually be used to improve the lives of millions around the world.

Giving Tree is Guardian campaign of the week

The tree typically appears in shopping centres covered with labels saying “Boy, 4” or “Girl, 2”, and these relate to individual children in, for example, a local hospice.Shoppers take the label of their choice to a shop, buy an appropriate present, and then this is wrapped and delivered on their behalf. Advertisementcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Giving Trees have been around since at least 1989 and are very popular in the USA, although they have now started to appear in the UK and other countries.While they often focus on children and are set up by children’s charities, there is no reason why other causes can’t benefit. The Giving Tree is certainly reminiscent of virtual or beneficiary gifts, which are so popular at present. So, a Giving Tree could easily be decorated with labels saying “teacher training pack”, “mango plantation”, “malaria nets for a family”, or other labels appropriate to an international development charity.Similarly, there’s no reason why a Giving Tree can’t be virtual itself and exist online. In the USA it seems the Salvation Army was one of the first nonprofits to set up a web-based Giving Tree.Let us know if you’ve used the concept of a Giving Tree, whether online or offline, to raise funds.

On the picket line

On the picket line

first_imgFedEx workers win a place at the bargaining table“What they said couldn’t be done is getting done,” two Charlotte, N.C., FedEx drivers announced triumphantly in a June 11 video at ChangeFedExToWin.org. FedEx Freight workers in Philadelphia and Charlotte, represented by Teamsters Local 71, entered contract negotiations June 15 and 16, respectively, three months after a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judge ordered the company to bargain with the two locals. In its 45-year history, the notoriously anti-union FedEx had barred workers in the freight division from collective bargaining.This labor victory culminates a years-long, David-and-Goliath struggle against FedEx, which during 2009-10 spent over $21.1 million lobbying Congress against labor rights legislation. Workers and supporters in the Teamsters union fought back on multiple fronts, with National Labor Review Board complaints and in federal court, on picket lines in California and at rallies in Philadelphia and Charlotte.After the first Charlotte meeting with management, Teamsters Local 71 President Joe Eason declared, “We are going to hold the company’s feet to the fire during negotiations and we are committed to negotiating a first contract for the workers in Charlotte.” (TTnews.com)Broad support for Minnesota nurses’ strikeSome 4,800 members of the Minnesota Nurses Association struck five hospitals operated by Allina Health in the Twin Cities metro area June 19-26. Despite a net income of $1.3 billion over the past six years, while workers and their families struggled after the 2008-09 recession, Allina has continued to dangerously understaff hospitals. Management demanded that the nurses accept a $10 million cut in their health plan. Of the five major health care groups in the area, four currently offer the plan Allina wants to cut. When workers rejected the offer, Allina refused to return to the bargaining table.The nurses were joined on the picket line by members of the SEIU Healthcare Minnesota and Education Minnesota unions, city council members, and doctors and patients. “It might be a cliché, but for me it goes back to the old adage, ‘An injury to one is an injury to all,’” explained Brionna Harder, a teacher and member of Education Minnesota who supported the strike. (WorkdayMinnesota.org, June 23)The nurses returned to work on June 26 under the terms of the previous contract. As of that date neither side had proposed a return to the bargaining table.Macy’s and Triumph workers win better contracts after strike votesTwo strike votes, on opposite coasts, showed the power of the strike threat, leading to much improved contacts in June. Hundreds of workers, represented by Department Store Union (RWDSU) Local 1-S, rallied outside Macy’s flagship store in New York City on June 2. While many workers at four area stores earn as little as $9 an hour, CEO Terry Lundgren’s total compensation in 2014 rose to nearly $13 million, up from more than $11.4 million in 2013. A vote to strike on June 15, the day the contract expired, sent Macy’s back to the table. On June 23, the 5,000 RWDSU members ratified a new, four-year contract by 97.5 percent. The agreement includes substantial wage increases; a better, more affordable health care plan; and fair schedules, including no mandatory work on major holidays. (rwdsu.org, June 24)As of June 23, 400 members of Machinists Union (IAMAW) District Lodge 751 at Triumph Composite Systems in Spokane, Wash., voted by 82 percent to accept the company’s offer of a four-year contract and return to work on June 27. The company locked them out on May 10 after a strike vote of 93 percent on May 9.The new contract made significant gains, curbing the two-tier wage and benefit system. By giving raises to the newer workers, the contract cut in half the 12.5 percent pay gap between workers hired before 2006 and those hired after. All workers get lump-sum bonuses totaling $7,000 spread over three years and all workers get a 3 percent raise the fourth year. The company will fund a new retirement plan for workers hired since 2013 and maintain the current health care cost-sharing plan. “What has happened here over the past six weeks is a shining example of the power of union membership where workers have the right to bargain with their employer,” observed IAM Local 751 President Jon Holden.
