The making of an LGBT ministry in El Salvador

But i was in for another surprise when i found myself literally alone when i received a pastoral letter given to all clergies and seminarians (while i was on my third year in divinity studies) issued by the retired prime bishop and his council expressing their strong objection over bp gene robinson’s consecration and new westminster’s blessing of same sex unions-thus announcing to all that the episcopal church under their leadership has joined in the global south anglican bandwagon in attacking the episcopal church and further adding that proverbial salt to an open wound declaring that they expect all clergies and persons in ministry formation to follow the resolutions of lambeth ’98 and enforce moratorium and punishment on erring church provinces…and even extending these prohibitions not only on ordaining bishops who are openly lgbt but went on to include all priests and deacons and with special mention to persons in ministry formation warning that they won’t be ordained to the ministry should they persist on remaining in this lifestyle. Now that was a harsh reality check on me that literally closed the doors of ordination on a very liberal and openly affirming lgbt episcopalian like myself. But i didn’t let this temporary setback tied my vision to their agenda instead i fortified myself with the thought that ’twas the inclusive spirituality and liturgy of the prayerbook that drew me inside the church and so i returned to my hometown and my rector who is now the bishop was very gracious in accepting me nevermind the position of conservative leaders in manila, that enabled me to continue on as a committed episcopalian serving in a small rural intentional community of faith practicing the inclusive prayerbook spirituality as episcopalians (and in spiritual fidelity to the episcopal church) in this part of the world.

I’ve come to see that leading a person to believe that s/he can’t be embraced fully by God is a terrible form of abuse. I thank God that I eventually found the Episcopal Church, and that increasingly our Church is a force for healing and justice around the world – not just when it comes to sexual orientation and gender identity, but in many other areas as well. Our leaders and faithful members have not always taken the easiest path over the past half century or so, thank goodness. Now I think we are emerging with a sense of mission and a sensitivity to the Holy Spirit that could not have been possible if we had put institutional interests and comfort ahead of Jesus’ call to love and justice. Looking at the state of the world it is easy to be pessimistic and scared about what will come tomorrow, but the Episcopal Church fills me with hope.

That too is biblical. What one does in one’s personal life is nobody’s business really. Even marriage is between two people and God, not government. I really believe it should have stayed that way, but I understand the reasons behind wanting to be equal with equal rights by law. I just feel called to pray for everyone and to accept that God will have the last word, if not here, then hereafter. Peace be with you. Latin America Featured Jobs & Calls Sister Jeannine Gramick of New Ways Ministry, a longtime Roman Catholic crusader for LGBT rights, lights candles for victims of hate crimes during a memorial service March 14 during the first-ever conference for LGBT human rights held at the University of Central America in San Salvador. ENS photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service – San Salvador, El Salvador] In 2007, while working in the library and studying psychology at the University of Central America here in San Salvador, Cruz Torres discovered the Episcopal Church.He was cataloguing “The Anglican Review,” a prospectus from the Anglican Church in Guatemala. As he read it and later researched the Episcopal Church, he learned about the 2003 election of New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay priest elected bishop, and the church’s openness to LGBT people.“And I wondered if there was an Anglican church here,” he said during a recent interview with ENS.Torres eventually found La Parroquia San Juan Evangelista de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador and, after three Sundays, approached the Rev. Luis Serrano, the church’s rector.“I told him, ‘Well, Father, I don’t want to lie. I want to tell you the truth. I’m Roman Catholic. I’ve read about LGBT rights in the Episcopal Church. I am gay. I am a Christian, and I want to live my spiritual life in a place that doesn’t damn me,’” said Torres, during the interview at San Juan Evangelista.Serrano responded: “Our doors are open.”It was November 2007. Not long after Torres arrived, a male couple found the church. And then came another gay man and another, and eventually the number grew to six. Bishop of El Salvador Martin Barahona suggested that the group help the diocese begin a ministry on sexual diversity, but the group declined, Torres said. “We said, ‘No, El Salvador isn’t ready.’”Two years later, the group was meeting regularly on Saturday afternoons and had doubled in size.“We were 12, and we started to talk about our experiences in the [other] churches, and we said maybe it was time to call and invite the people we know,” Torres said. “Half of the people who came wanted to change [their sexual orientation] but that wasn’t our vision or our mission.”The Anglican/Episcopal Church of El Salvador is one of five churches in La Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America, which also includes Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama and Guatemala, that have formed a covenant with the Episcopal Church. El Salvador’s diversity ministry is the only one of its kind in the region’s Episcopal churches, said Torres.(Two other full-inclusion ministries exist in El Salvador, one in the Metropolitan Community Church and the other in a Protestant evangelical church.)That is not to say the situation for LGBT people is particularly different in El Salvador. Conservative sectors, including in the church and the media, call homosexuality bad and a sin, and the families of LGBT people are made to believe that, which affects how they sometimes treat their sons and daughters, said Torres.“Their families believe that because of what they are told by fanatics,” he said. LGBT people must demonstrate to family members how they’d like to be treated, he added. “That is the principal thing we do here [in the ministry]; people need to be fine with themselves.”The group’s mission was not to make gay people straight, as is the mission of some churches, but rather to help members work through their feelings, Torres explained. “We said: ‘God loves you as you are. If you are gay, it is because of His will, and you have a mission in life.’”Since forming the Ministerio de Diversidad Sexual in 2009, a diocesewide ministry, the group has grown to between 25 and 30 people – Roman Catholics, Methodists, Mormons, Evangelicals — many of whom have been received into the church. But evangelizing, Torres pointed out, isn’t the group’s mission either.Historic eventDespite advances in human rights, LGBT Salvadorans and those across the region often face discrimination and violence, topics recently addressed during the first-ever conference for LGBT human rights in El Salvador, held March 14-15 at the University of Central America.The group from San Juan Evangelista was well represented at the conference hosted by Asistencia Legal para la Diversidad Sexual El Salvador and the SHARE Foundation, a nonprofit human-and-civil-rights-advocacy organization. More than 1,000 people attended the two-day conference, including members of the Committee on Gender Diversity of Parroquia San Juan Evangelista de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador.“This is the first time this has happened in El Salvador, a place where to be openly gay, lesbian or transgendered could get you killed,” said Olivia Amadon. She attended the conference as a representative of Foundation Cristosal, a faith-based human rights and community-development organization that has its beginnings in the Episcopal and Anglican churches. “So it’s very inspiring to see organizations that support LGBT rights come together and put a face on the issues.”The conference included speakers, panels and discussions addressing:  what it means to be LGBT in El Salvador; community empowerment through the political process; inclusive faith communities as promoters of human rights; using international law to combat impunity; and access to justice as a human right.(In the last few years, the United Nations has begun to frame LGBT rights as basic human rights.)Speakers and panelists, Amadon said, talked of LGBT rights as human rights that should be protected, but the question remains: “Where does the conversation go from here?”The government of El Salvador’s executive branch has passed a decree banning discrimination based on sexual identity in the public sector, but that decree doesn’t extend to the private sector and can easily be overturned, and the laws protecting women and children from violence don’t extend to LGBT people, said Amadon.Even though the police are already receiving sensitivity trainings, transgender women continue to be beaten in the streets, said Amadon. “The law won’t solve discrimination, but there would be less impunity when violations do happen.”Passing a law is one step; the next is promoting awareness so homophobia and systemic discrimination decline, she said.It is a hate that has been around for generations, said Salvador Ramos, 22, in an interview at the conference.“It’s about changing the psychology of the masses,” said Nestor Urquilla, 41, adding that at most there are 3,000 Episcopalians in El Salvador (the total population is 6 million).Besides being the first conference on LGBT rights in El Salvador, the March gathering was significant in making clear a situation that needs to be changed, Torres said. That change cannot come from government, but through the grassroots efforts of society, he added.In general, straight members of the Episcopal Church in El Salvador have been supportive of the group, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been resistance, said Wendy Castillo, 28, a member of the diversity group.“It hasn’t all been rose-colored,” she said, adding that there is still work to be done.When Torres and the others from the LGBT community first began attending services at San Juan Evangelista, the parish was open to their presence, but two or three families left, said Serrano.Torres, now 30, first revealed his sexual identity during confession with a Roman Catholic priest when he was 18. Even though the priest didn’t reject him, he said, he didn’t feel welcome in the church and was without a spiritual home from 2005 to 2007, when he found the Episcopal Church.“It’s God’s will that I am here,” Torres said. “I accept myself and am happy with me, since I found that last piece of my heart.”“I was happy being gay, but there was this last thing in my heart,” Torres concluded. “When I came here I could be me, being Christian and being gay.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

John-David Schofield, leader of San Joaquin departure, dead at 75

The meeting occurred 10 months before Schofield and a majority of the diocese’s congregations voted in December 2007 to realign with the Argentina-based Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg, Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Retired Bishop John-David Schofield, who nearly six years ago voted with a majority of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin’s congregations to realign with the Argentina-based Anglican Province of the Southern Cone, died Oct. 29.A statement on the Anglican Church in North America’s website said Schofield, 75, was found dead seated in a chair in his home in Fresno, California. Friends had come to check on him, according to Bishop Eric Menees of the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin.Details about funeral services are not yet certain.Schofield, at odds with the Episcopal Church over the ordination of women and gay clergy, and issues of biblical authority, had urged the Central California Valley diocese to disaffiliate and join the Southern Cone. That vote happened Dec. 8, 2007, during a diocesan convention. He called the vote “a historic moment…a vote for freedom.”His was the first of five efforts by bishops to lead diocesan leaders and members out of the Episcopal Church, which is made up of 109 dioceses and three regional areas.After the San Joaquin vote, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori deposed Schofield on March 12, 2008, after the House of Bishops agreed with the findings of a Title IV Review Committee that Schofield had abandoned the communion of the church.He served as vicar of Saint Columba Parish Church in Inverness, California, and became bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin in January 1989. Six months later he signed onto the creation of the traditionalist Episcopal Synod of America, which opposed the ordination of women and was committed to combating an alleged erosion of episcopal and biblical authority.The ESA grew out of the Evangelical and Catholic Mission, an organization formed in late 1976 in opposition to General Convention’s decision earlier that year to allow women to be ordained as priests and bishops. The ESA later joined the Britain-based Forward in Faith, becoming known as Forward in Faith North America.In 1992 Schofield signed an ESA statement that denied critics’ claims that the group’s efforts to set up a “missionary diocese” were aimed at fragmenting the church. Schofield’s support of the synod upset many in the Episcopal diocese.Schofield became the leader of Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin after the 2007 split. He retired from that post in 2011 and then acted as a bishop in residence. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID November 3, 2013 at 2:35 pm Truly a pillar in the faith. May his memory be eternal!

At news of his death, one thing comes to mind: the anthem or motet that we sang when I was a Grace Cathedral chorister:“Oh, sing joyfully unto God our strength!”David — I always knew him as Father David — was always joyful. Not merely optimistic, in the sense of having a conviction that things would get better. Joyful. Every moment with David was a moment of joy in the awe-inspiring beauty of the God-createdness of everything.RIP November 3, 2013 at 9:46 pm The Reverend Bishop John-David Schofield remained steadfast and true to “The Way, the Truth, and the Life,” “the only way to God the Father,” “the Living Water,” “the Bread of Life,” “the Good Shepherd,” the “only Wise God and Savior,” – Jesus Christ. This genuinely Godly man “feared God rather than man.” Bishop Schofield held true to Jesus who “remains the same, yesterday, today, and forever.” Bishop Schofield remained solid and did not shift with the ever-changing unsteady winds of time that brought with them contra-biblical quicksand theologies. His example helped to lay a foundational example of He consistently made and held his courageous stand so well up to the very end of his earthly existence. He upheld the infallible truths of the Holy Bible. Bishop John-David Schofield demonstrated well, the courage of his convictions, giving all of us who desire to follow Christ more closely, a great example of a devoted man who faithfully walked with God and finished well. I will miss him greatly, and pray God will inspire and raise up countless others to courageously and kindly walk in Christ Jesus’ footsteps in like-manner as he did.

Youth Minister Lorton, VA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel November 14, 2013 at 2:06 pm Schofield seemed to have become self-centered in his exclusionary form of Christianity.

The design of the recently completed residence Pfarrmessner presents itself to the observer in a uniform and almost solid manner. The building is situated at the southern outskirts of the city of Sterzing/Vipiteno, at approximately 950 meter above sea level. It is also the southernmost city of South Tyrol, an autonomic province of Italy. The residence, which is generally orientated east and westwards, is separated into four storeys, whilst each one of the four apartments develops differently through and on these floors. These very individual arrangements of floor layouts, as well as the patchy positioning of openings and loggias find their common ground in the coherent exterior. Projected as a building of solid construction, it features a concrete bearing structure with an insulated plaster facade. Its monolithic and robust appearance is referring to some regional predominant porphyry stone, which is typically characterised by its reddish-brown colouration.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gustav WilleitSave this picture!Floor PlanThe prefiguration of this very stone was implemented to the facade by the use a high pigmented moulding plaster, marked above all by its organic fine-grain amount. The plaster was applied to the surfaces by employing rollers, furthermore it was polished afterwards to create a deliberate three-dimensional appearance and visual depth of the surface. The optical impression of the building is therefore likely to change in the course of the day and the actual daylight situation, where the homogenous exterior appeals respectively different and nuanced. In terms of colour, the aligned louvered metal blinds fit, in closed condition of the building, apparently seamless into the openings and underscores therefore the objects homogeneity. All metal surfaces at the facade have exclusively been powder-coated with the same reddish-brown colour hue. Every apartment has, hence its geographical location near the alps and the therefore rough climate in this region, also sheltered exteriors, in the shape of loggias or recessed balconies.Save this picture!© Gustav WilleitThe porphyry-red facade generates a physical context and represents the interface between the roughness of the surrounding coarse-grained boundary wall of the site and also the smooth and anodised surface of the window frames an shutter blinds. While the facade was realised in a notable structured style, which benefits from the massive body of the residence, surfaces at the interior on the other hand are much contrasting this with a favoured smoother visual effect.Save this picture!SectionA cosy and comfortable interior climate is provided by an ecological insulation, as well as insulating glass with thermal-segregated window profiles and automatic ventilation with an energy recovery system.In terms of sustainability and energy-efficiency, the building was awarded by the Casa Clima Agency with the low energy Casa Clima A class certification. Casa Clima buildings exhibit optimised construction methods, careful execution and a high level of comfort.Buildings with a heat consumption of less than 30 kilowatt-hours per square metre annually receive Casa Clima A classification, and are also called “three-litre” buildings for their theoretically energy consumption of 3 litres of oil.Save this picture!© Gustav WilleitProject gallerySee allShow lessQatar Unveils Fifth World Cup Venue: Al Rayyan Stadium by Pattern ArchitectsArchitecture News172-Year-Old Tunnel Project to Become London’s Newest Performance VenueArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Gustav Willeit+ 17 Share CopyHouses•Vipiteno, Italy “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/621985/residence-pfarrmessner-sterzing-pedevilla-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officePedevilla ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesVipitenoItalyPublished on April 23, 2015Cite: “Residence Pfarrmessner Sterzing / Pedevilla Architects” 23 Apr 2015.

MPs back calls for tighter fundraising rules says research

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement Melanie May | 23 December 2015 | News Negative media coverage of fundraising practices means that the majority of MPs across all parties (63%) now support tighter regulations, according to the nfpSynergy Charity Parliamentary Monitor.The research surveyed 150 MPs in October, and found that 63% of MPs across all parties think stricter rules are needed. Half (49%) also think that it is a necessary move even if it results in charities raising less money, while 62% also agree that Parliament should be doing more to scrutinise charities and their activities.The research also indicates that MPs’ broader perceptions of charities have been affected by last summer’s negative media coverage. 43% of MPs overall say they find it harder to trust charities as a result of recent media stories, with 26% of MPs less likely to support charity campaigns in Parliament.Only 24% of those surveyed felt charities had defended and explained their fundraising practices well, while 23% said they had received a substantial number of complaints about fundraising practices from their constituents.Public opinion seems to mirror that of MPs according to further October research by nfpSynergy: the Charity Awareness Monitor, which regularly surveys a representative sample of 1,000 adults aged 16+.  According to this report, 71% of the general public also think that tighter regulation is needed even if it means that charities raise less money, while 68% of those surveyed thought that charities and their activities should come under closer scrutiny from Parliament. 30% thought charities have done a good job of defending and explaining their fundraising practices in light of negative media coverage.Tim Harrison, nfpSynergy director of tracking research said:“It’s worrying to see that recent media coverage of fundraising scandals has had such a negative impact on how MPs see charities. Public trust in charities has fallen this year, and it’s now clear that MPs from all parties are keen to respond to this by backing a crackdown on invasive fundraising practices.”  30 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 26, 2018 SHARE Indianapolis Farm Expo December 11-13 Highlights Technology and Innovation A-new-Indy-farm-showThe annual 3-day farm show each December at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is being resurrected in two weeks with a new name and a new emphasis on the changes that are becoming a part of agriculture. Hoosier Ag Today and Farm World Newspaper have put together the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo with the focus squarely on technology and new innovations, according to HAT President Gary Truitt.“Indiana is really a hub of new innovations, and this is not science. This is not the lab. These are not the geeks,” he explains. “This is where technology gets practical. We’re taking technology, not the theoretical that may be in the marketplace someday, we’re taking the taking the technology that is being used and can be used in agriculture production today, and showing farmers, and giving them exposure as to how they can use this technology on their farm to improve their operations in many cases to lower their costs.”There is a lot of talk about the role of drones in agriculture, and Purdue Extension will be at the expo to present important new information gathered by their drone program.“All summer long Purdue Extension has been taking drones out to Indiana farms and using them in farming operations to do crop scouting, to do crop evaluations, disease management, evaluation on tile and drainage, all kinds of research that Purdue has been doing, and they will have the results of that cutting-edge research on display. They’ll have videos, they’ll have the actual farmers and extension educators who participated in the research at the show.”Purdue will use drones at the expo to show you how they compiled their work. Each day a $1,000 drone package will be awarded. Your free registration to the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo qualifies you for the drone giveaway.Next in this space you’ll learn about keynote speakers for the expo and the new seminars and demonstration and coffee shop areas on the expo floor December 11-13.

Photo Credit: Acuna-HansenNew and exciting things are happening in the Magnolia House kitchen, as the cozy and contemporary bungalow situated on South Lake Avenue in sunny Pasadena welcomes Executive Chef Evan Colter, who is reinvigorating the menu with playful creativity and setting the table for Sunday Suppers beginning Sunday, November 22nd, 2015!After restaurateurs John and Chris Bicos recently promoted Executive Chef Kyu Yi to Corporate Executive Chef of all Bicos Hospitality restaurants (Magnolia House, Gus’s Barbeque Est. 1946, The Original Tops), they wanted to bring someone into the Magnolia House kitchen who was strong and talented. That is where Colter comes in, bringing youthful creativity and vibrancy to an already stellar Small Plates Menu elevated by his playful technique and skill. “I am looking forward to being able to have the freedom to be creative,” says Colter, who has worked alongside such notable chefs as Kris Tominaga and Brian Dunsmoor at the Hart & the Hunter and Executive Chef Tony Esnault at Church and State, and most recently was running the kitchen at Freddy Smalls in West Los Angeles.Ready and raring to go, Colter has already added his personal stamp to the menu, featuring five new Small Plates and a lineup of family style feast-like Sunday Suppers. “Kyu handed over a great menu that I was able to adapt as my own, and one of the first things I wanted to do was add a few seafood dishes,” says Colter. Bringing the ocean to Pasadena, Colter has introduced three new refreshing and tasty seafood Small Plates on the menu.Creamy, colorful and “not-to-be-missed,” the Uni Toast is topped with house-made uni butter, radishes, chives and sea salt, which is the perfect toasted treat to kick-off L.A.’s official autumn season. Additionally, there is the flavorful Hamachi Crudo; thinly sliced raw yellowtail tuna dusted with pickled coriander, Fresno chilies, avocado, micro cilantro and smoked sea salt that is almost too pretty to eat (almost). Bringing the briny and brackish flavors to the table, Colter has also added Oysters to the menu, served on the half shell with traditional accouterments of classic mignonette, sweet and spicy mignonette, cocktail sauce and fresh horseradish.Colter is also offering a flavorful Cheese Plate, befit with three different types of chef-selected cheeses and charcuterie served alongside bite-sized accompaniments like pickled okra, olives, toasted nuts and a drizzle of honey.As for heartier Small Plates, Colter is cooking up a Roasted Bone Marrow with Uni. Two six-inch split bones are served with barbecue sauce and pickled remoulade topped with bright-orange uni. Those who prefer more meat than “bone” can enjoy a succulent sliced Skirt Steak topped with classic Chimichurri sauce served with crispy golden fries.Putting an imaginative spin on Sundays with the intent of bringing families and friends together to break bread under the Magnolia House roof, Colter is also introducing a fun lineup of Sunday Suppers. Inspired by the rich history of the restored craftsman bungalow, Colter pays tribute to the house that has stood for over one hundred years and may have been the setting for many sumptuous suppers to families who once inhabited it.Showcasing regions of the United States monthly through these delectable dinners, Colter kicks his first Sunday Dinner series off with flavors of the Southeast for the month of November, setting the table with flavorful plates like Buttermilk Fried Duck, Biscuits & Gravy and Mustard Potato Salad served with house-made hot sauce. Bar Manager Brian Klemm also adds his playful twist to the dinner, pairing one of his signature Specialty Cocktails with each meal.With a myriad of new and exciting dishes and playful Sunday Suppers, Colter is excited to call Magnolia House his new home. This is just the beginning for this talented Chef who is packing a youthful punch of creativity, imagination and skill. The fireplace has been lit, the table has been set and the dinner bell is just about to ring… so don’t be late!Magnolia House is open Monday through Wednesday from 4:00 pm to 12:00 am, Thursday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 am and Sunday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.
