Convención General aprobó el 11 de julio, por unanimidad, el presupuesto de la Iglesia Episcopal para el trienio 2013-2015 basado en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión.El presupuesto, que se puede consultar aquí, se equilibró en $111.516.032, en comparación con $111.808.350 para el trienio actual, y viene con un pequeño superávit de $30.000.La Obispa Primada, Katharine Jefferts Schori, y Bonnie Anderson, la presidente saliente de la Cámara de Diputados, se dirigieron a los periodistas en una conferencia de prensa de clausura el 12 de julio.En esta convención “han visto a la Iglesia Episcopal no sólo del futuro, sino del día de hoy, con la presencia de jóvenes adultos, cuyo número ha sido el más significativo que hayamos visto en mucho tiempo, de personas de muchas naciones y tribus y tradiciones idiomáticas”, dijo Jefferts Schori, quien resaltó que más de 40 invitados internacionales habían asistido a la Convención. “La Iglesia Episcopal goza de buena salud, se hace cada vez más saludable, y se prepara para hacer un impacto aún más significativo en el mundo que nos rodea. Nada nos detiene. Que el mundo esté atento. Estamos por llegar”.Anderson, que ahora deja la presidencia de la Cámara de Diputados, dijo que había sido una gran convención y que los diputados, el 44 por ciento de los cuales eran nuevos, estaban extremadamente bien preparados.La Convención General, que sesionó del 5 al 12 de julio en el Centro de Convenciones de Indiana, está compuesta por la Cámara de Obispos y la Cámara de Diputados, que incluye a clérigos y laicos.Reforma estructuralDe las casi 400 resoluciones que se presentaron a la Convención General más de 90 estaban relacionadas con la reforma estructural. La mayoría de esas resoluciones eran de naturaleza semejante y fue labor del comité de estructura de la Convención sopesar la legislación y hacer sus recomendaciones a la cámara.La aprobación por unanimidad de la Resolución C095 -que solicita la creación de un equipo de trabajo para reconsiderar la obra de la Iglesia Episcopal en el siglo XXI- provocó aplausos y vítores en la Cámara de Obispos. Un día antes, los diputados habían aprobado la misma resolución por unanimidad.La legislación crea un equipo de trabajo especial de hasta 24 personas que hará acopio de ideas durante los próximos dos años, en todos los niveles de la Iglesia, sobre las posibles reformas de sus estructuras, gobierno y administración. Su trabajo culminará en una reunión especial de personas procedentes de todas las diócesis para oír las recomendaciones que el equipo de trabajo se propone hacer a la 78ª. Convención General. Su informe final deberá presentarse en noviembre de 2014.El obispo Stacy Sauls, jefe de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, encomió la labor tanto del comité de estructura como de la Convención.“Mi esperanza siempre ha sido que comenzaríamos a tener una conversación y que la Iglesia abrazaría eso. La conversación se convirtió en un movimiento de esperanza para el futuro de la Iglesia”.Añadió que el pueblo de la Iglesia Episcopal se ha dado cuenta -y lo institucional lo percibe- “que estamos a punto de un momento sin precedentes, que lo hemos visto como una oportunidad más que como amenaza”.El presupuestoLa porción de gastos del presupuesto para el próximo trienio se ha asignado según las Cinco Marcas de la Misión de la Comunión Anglicana, y las categorías de administración y gobierno. Las cinco marcas son:Proclamar las Buenas Nuevas del Reino de Dios.Enseñar, bautizar y formar a nuevos creyentes.Responder a las necesidades humanas con amoroso servicioProcurar la transformación de las estructuras sociales injustas.Luchar por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y por el sostenimiento y la renovación de la vida en la tierra.El presupuesto asume $73,5 millones en compromisos de las diócesis de la Iglesia, cerca de $4 millones menos que en el trienio actual. El total se basó en mantener el 19 por ciento del monto que la Iglesia le pide como contribución anual a las diócesis para el presupuesto denominacional.Bendiciones a parejas del mismo sexoEn una decisión histórica, la Convención autorizó el uso provisional de un rito para las uniones de parejas del mismo sexo. [Con el nombre de] “El testimonio y la bendición de un pacto de por vida”, el rito se podrá empezar a usar a partir del 2 de diciembre (el primer Domingo de Adviento), pero, según lo estipulado en la resolución, los clérigos necesitarán de un permiso de su obispo.La resolución le pide a la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música (SCLM por su sigla en inglés) “llevar a cabo un proceso a lo largo del próximo trienio, dejando en claro que se trata de un trabajo en progreso”, dijo a los diputados la Rda. Ruth Meyers, representante de la Diócesis de Chicago. Ella presidió el subcomité sobre bendiciones y la SCLM del Comité del Libro de Oración, Liturgia y Música Eclesiástica.La resolución instruye a la SCLM que incluya “diversas perspectivas teológicas en el ulterior desarrollo del material teológico” e invita a reacciones provenientes de toda la Iglesia, así como de la Comunión Anglicana y de los aliados ecuménicos de la Iglesia.La resolución dice que, conforme a los cánones existentes, un clérigo puede rehusar presidir una liturgia de bendición y dice que nadie “debe ser coaccionado o penado en manera alguna, ni sufrir ninguna incapacidad canónica” por objetar o apoyar la decisión de la 77ª. Convención General sobre las bendiciones.Identidad y expresión sexualesDos resoluciones aprobadas por la Convención le brindan apoyo a la comunidad transexual al añadir la expresión e identidad sexuales a dos cánones que impiden la discriminación. Una deja en claro que el proceso de discernimiento de la ordenación está abierto para [los transexuales] y la otra garantiza su lugar de igualdad en la vida, culto y gobierno de la Iglesia.Luego de las decisiones sobre las bendiciones [a uniones de personas] del mismo sexo y de los derechos de los transexuales, la mayoría de los diputados de la Diócesis de Carolina del Sur abandonó la Convención General el 11 de julio porque, en las palabras de uno de sus diputados clericales que se quedó, la convención había violado la doctrina, disciplina y culto de la Iglesia Episcopal.Sin embargo, ese diputado, el Muy Rdo. John B Burwell, le dijo a Episcopal News Service “no nos vamos de la Iglesia Episcopal”.Inversión positivaLa Convención apoyó por abrumadora mayoría una resolución sobre la inversión positiva en los Territorios Palestinos. Pero los obispos convinieron en aplazar indefinidamente un diálogo sobre el compromiso corporativo.La Resolución B019 afirma la inversión positiva “como un medio necesario de crear una sana economía y una infraestructura sostenible” en los Territorios Palestinos. También le pide a la Iglesia que sostenga “el estudio judío, musulmán y cristiano sobre paz con justicia en el Oriente Medio” y presenta una bibliografía anotada de materiales [de consulta].La Resolución C060, que convocaba a la Iglesia a participar “en una responsabilidad corporativa social con un compromiso corporativo más vigoroso y público con compañías en la cartera de inversiones de la Iglesia que contribuyan a la infraestructura de la ocupación” fue postergada después de que el obispo Sean Rowe, de Pensilvania Noroccidental, pidió que el diálogo fuese aplazado indefinidamente. Los diputados habían aprobado esa resolución el 9 de julio, pero aún requería del consentimiento de los obispos.Pacto Anglicano, Indaba ContinuoLa Convención también ratificó su compromiso de mejorar las relaciones con la Comunión Anglicana, especialmente a través del programa Indaba Continuo, y rehusó asumir una posición sobre el Pacto Anglicano.Luego de considerar ocho resoluciones, el Comité sobre Misión Mundial de la Convención General recomendó la adopción de dos resoluciones sobre las relaciones con la Comunión Anglicana y el Pacto Anglicano, un documento que inicialmente había tenido el propósito de vincular a los anglicanos de todo el mundo más allá de diferencias culturales y teológicas.Ian Douglas, obispo de Connecticut y presidente del Comité de Misión Mundial, dijo a ENS luego de la votación que las resoluciones son “una genuina respuesta pastoral porque no tenemos la misma opinión, y presionar por una decisión en este momento provocaría lastimaduras y alienación en nuestra Iglesia, en ambas partes, de ahí que, en lugar de eso, decidiéramos mantenernos en el diálogo”.La Rda. Gay Jennings, de Ohio, fue electa para servir como la próxima presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, y Byron Rushing, de Massachusetts, como el próximo vicepresidente. Cada uno prestará servicios por un período de dos años a partir del fin de la Convención General.Entre otras legislaciones aprobadas por la Convención se incluyen:SudánResolución A019, que reafirma la promoción y apoyo de la paz en el SudánLiberación de presos cubanosResolución A021, pide la liberación de todos los que se encuentran en las prisiones cubanas por actividades religiosas o por abogar pacíficamente a favor de un cambio político en la República de Cuba; y apoya los empeños por el trato humano y el cuidado pastoral de cuatro ciudadanos cubanos convictos de espiar para el gobierno de la República de Cuba, y quienes se encuentran cumpliendo condenas de prisión en Estados Unidos.EcumenismoResolución A036, que encomia la relación de 11 años de plena comunión con la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América y pide al Comité Coordinador Luterano-Episcopal que aborde las áreas donde las costumbres episcopales y luteranas difieren, especialmente en torno al asunto de quién puede presidir la Santa Comunión y el papel de los diáconos.Estudiar el matrimonioResolución A050, que autoriza a un equipo de trabajo a que estudie el matrimonio. Pide la creación de un equipo de trabajo de 12 miembros para estudiar el matrimonio, incluida las necesidades de respuestas pastorales de parte del clero para las parejas del mismo sexo en estados donde el matrimonio civil es legal [para estas parejas], así como a los problemas “suscitados por el cambio de las normas sociales y culturales y las estructuras legales”.Libro de OraciónResolución A059, que revisa las lecturas de Semana Santa en el Libro de Oración para que se correspondan con las que aparecen en el Leccionario Común Revisado.Pobreza y justiciaResolución A135, una compilación de varias otras resoluciones que responden a los problemas de la pobreza y la injusticia. Compromete a la Iglesia durante los próximos tres años a “enseñar, predicar, organizar, abogar y construir relaciones mutuamente transformadoras con aquellas [personas] que son pobres para concentrar nuestros corazones y la misión de nuestras congregaciones y diócesis en reducir la pobreza e incrementar la justicia económica y racial”. Pide también que en cada reunión que tenga lugar en la Iglesia se incluya un espacio para orar y reflexionar “sobre cómo nuestra labor aborda los problemas de la pobreza y de la justicia económica y racial” a fin de “cultivar la conciencia acerca de la pobreza en nuestras comunidades y en el mundo”.Supervisar a las mujeres y a otros grupos subrepresentadosResolución A144, que exige el rastrear la proporción de mujeres y hombres en el proceso eleccionario de obispos, junto con la de minorías raciales y étnicas, e insta a las diócesis a luchar por una mayor diversidad en los candidatos.Apoyo al hospital de GazaResolución B017, que pide a la Iglesia apoyo para el Hospital Al Ahli de Gaza, perteneciente a la Diócesis [Anglicana] de Jerusalén con recaudación de fondos y promoción social luego de que la Agencia de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados de Palestina (UNRWA) suspendiera su ayuda económica, reduciendo el presupuesto del hospital casi a la mitad.Reconciliación o disolución de una relación episcopalResolución B021, que enmienda los cánones al objeto de proporcionar un mecanismo para abordar un desacuerdo en la relación pastoral entre una diócesis y su obispo.Plan de salud denominacionalResolución B026, que le da a diócesis y parroquias tres años adicionales para cumplir con el requisito de ofrecer paridad en compartir los costos del seguro de salud entre empleados clérigos y laicos. Esa fecha límite se extiende ahora hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2015. Las diócesis y parroquias aún deben ofrecer seguros de salud a sus empleados a través del Consorcio Médico de la Iglesia [Church Medical Trust] hasta fines de 2012. [La resolución] también pide al Consorcio Médico que continúe explorando “una partición más equitativa de los costos de las primas de la atención sanitaria”.Acceso al Santo Bautismo, Santa ComuniónResolución C029, que afirma la enseñanza de la Iglesia Episcopal de que el Bautismo es la norma para los que deseen recibir la Santa Comunión.Reubicación del Centro denominacional de la IglesiaResolución D016, que aprueba un traslado del centro denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en el 815 de la Segunda Avenida en Nueva York, pero autorizó la venta de este inmueble.Establecer una oficina para el desarrolloResolución D025, que establece una Oficina de Desarrollo para que la Iglesia Episcopal solicite importantes donaciones y otros recursos.Programa experimental de préstamo estudiantilResolución D049, que pide la creación de un fondo de préstamo estudiantil con carácter experimental para seminaristas que convengan en ejercer tres años de ministerio en zonas insuficientemente atendidas de la Iglesia Episcopal.Diálogo con la Iglesia mormonaResolución D081, que instruye a la Comisión Permanente sobre Relaciones Ecuménicas e Interreligiosas que inicie un diálogo entre la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia mormona “para los fines interreligiosos de amistad, buena voluntad y comprensión mutua” y a la expectativa de la 78ª.

Kim Davis, the pope and hope

first_imgThere’s been a hullabaloo about Pope Francis meeting with Kim Davis, the Kentucky official jailed for refusing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.Many progressive people were disbelieving. This pope had said, “Who’s to judge?” when asked about condemning gay people. This pope had expressed compassion for the earth’s downtrodden and blasted big business. They thought, “Someone must’ve duped him!”It’s probable that an unholy alliance of billionaires and bigoted bishops set up the meeting. Davis’ lawyer is funded by wealthy Protestant Christians who are rabidly anti-gay and also promote anti-contraception, anti-abortion “pregnancy-counseling centers.”  Some prominent Catholic bishops have joined Protestant right-wingers to sign a declaration comparing liberals supportive of same-sex marriage to Nazis. Next to these attack dogs of animosity, the pope’s public pronouncements of caring and concern made him seem almost angelic. But the New York Times and a Vatican press release confirmed the pope’s private audience with Davis. A wave of outrage from people whose hopes for more compassion had been dashed made the Holy See backpedal rapidly and deny the meeting’s significance.Millions of people crowded the streets to see Pope Francis on his U.S. visit. Their outpouring was an expression of deep longing for leadership and direction out of the spirit-crushing weight of capitalism and the community-smashing hatreds cultivated by big business to divide people along lines of national identity, race, religion, sex and gender, sexuality and dis/ability.The euphoria of hope raised by the pope was expressed by one observer who exclaimed, “He’s everybody’s pope — even the atheists.”Actually, nope. Not everybody’s pope.Pope Francis heads up a multibillion-dollar global institution that’s historically and inherently anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-lesbian, anti-bisexual and anti-transgender. His statements and his actions continue to uphold those bigotries.Besides Davis, the pope also met with nuns suing the Obama administration over required birth control coverage in health care. In his recent encyclical “Be Praised,” the pope condemns “techno-science” that provides contraception, obtains abortions for women and enables sex-confirmation surgery for transgender people. He compares those actions to “the nuclear bombs dropped in the middle of the twentieth century.”Where hope can be foundWe who want justice and liberation don’t have to stand on the curbs of city streets to look to a pope for hope. There is another kind of hope everywhere in the streets and workplaces of the U.S. nowadays.The dreamers and the doers of the immigrant rights movement raised a tide of hope with nationwide strikes in 2006 against deportation and Homeland Security terror. That struggle continues today.Now the Black Lives Matter movement has stopped trains in their tracks and shut down superhighways at rush hour across the country to say #NotOneMore lost to racist police and state terror against Black people. Militant worker organizing is rising — by communication workers from Maine to Virginia; by first-and-second-tier autoworkers uniting in the plants of the Midwest; by low-wage cooks, home-health aides, child-care workers in Birmingham and Atlanta; by women jailed in a Pennsylvania immigrant detention camp launching a work strike for freedom for their children; by teachers in Seattle and school bus drivers in Boston. On Nov. 7-8, Workers World Party is bringing our hope for a socialist future to a national conference open to all.We are fighters for a world where the wealth is owned by the people, not by the bosses and ruling class, where work and production is planned to meet human need, not corporate profit. We struggle for international working-class solidarity and the right of every nation to self-determination. We militantly oppose imperialist interventions and wars. We say, “Workers and oppressed peoples of the world, unite!”  Join us on Nov. 7 and 8 at the Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center in New York City.As the poet June Jordan said, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.” We look to ourselves for hope.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

UTPB registrar wins top award

first_img University of Texas Permian Basin Registrar Joe Sanders in his office Thursday, May 24th, 2018. Sanders recently won the Regents Outstanding Employee Award from the University of Texas System. University of Texas of the Permian Basin Registrar Joe Sanders doesn’t seek the spotlight, but that’s where he found himself recently as the winner of the Regents’ Outstanding Employee Award from the UT System.Sanders has worked at UTPB for 13 years and graduated from there with a bachelor’s degree in business. He has a master’s in management from Tarleton State University and is working on a doctor of business administration from Wilmington University in Delaware.He started as a graduation clerk in the registrar’s office, worked there for five years and then spent three years in financial aid.A spot in the registrar’s office opened up and he returned. By admin – June 1, 2018 UT System Regents’ Outstanding Employee Awards. Born and raised in Midland, Sanders graduated from Midland High School. He joined the Air Force to see the world, but got stationed in Abilene.When he finished his tour, he planned to attend Texas Tech University. He drove to Lubbock, but spent an hour and a half walking around campus and couldn’t find admissions or anyone to show him where the building was. He came home to Midland and his parents suggested UTPB.“I came over here and the dean of the college of business got me and walked me around,” Sanders said.He and his wife also planned to become Salvation Army ministers, but while they were in seminary in Atlanta, they became pregnant with the first of six children. Their children range in age from 3 to 13.Sanders said his wife wanted to move back to West Texas. It took him nine months to find a job and it turned out to be at the registrar’s office.The registrar’s main job is to maintain the integrity of the student’s record. Sanders said the registrar’s office keeps track of what classes a student signs up for, how they did in their classes and other duties. There are five people in his office, including himself.The Regents’ award came as a shock to Sanders. He added that he was told of his nomination in the middle of an email from one of his bosses, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dan Heimmermann.“I did not anticipate winning,” Sanders said.He attended the banquet for Regents’ Outstanding Employee Award winners in Austin in late May.“You got to go to the go banquet with the chancellor; you got a certificate; you got one of the chancellor’s coins and you got $10,000, but the absolute best part is we’ve got six kids and it was 27 hours me and my wife.
