At the 2012 triennial meeting of the Women of the Church, Sarita was honored as The Distinguished Woman from the Diocese of Oklahoma.Sarita was an active member of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Oklahoma City.  She served in volunteer capacities under both Bishop Bob Moody, now retired, and current Bishop Edward Konieczny.  She was dedicated to the work of the women of the church, especially to the importance of the United Thank Offering.A family member is quoted as saying, “Sarita gave 100 percent to fighting for UTO. She believed with great passion what the United Thank Offering meant, stood for, and does. She wanted The United Thank Offering to be the perfect example of mission for the Episcopal Church.”Funeral arrangements are pending.  Condolences can be sent to The Redd Family, P.O.

He is eager that the church should prepare for upcoming food shortages now.The rains earlier this year came late and were not sufficient so people in central areas of Tanzania are already struggling to get enough food, three months earlier than the usual lean season. The Rev. Canon Johnson Chinyong’ole is looking to get support to buy food stocks now from the highlands in the south of the country, where crops are being harvested, to store for later in the year. These stores will be used to provide targeted relief to those in direst need at the height of the looming crisis.Chinyong’ole would also like to set up seed banks to ensure that poor smallholder farmers will have seed to plant when the rains come in December. Farmers harvested so little last year that they have no seed left to sow and no income to buy seed, let alone improved (drought resistant) seed.Read the full story on the Anglican Alliance website.

Pope Francis visits martyrs’ shrine

It exists because these men refused to submit to their then King’s homosexual advances. These martyrs sacrificed their lives in defense of heterosexuality. How typical for Bergoglio, the media manipulator and modernist deceiver, to ignore this truth. Bergoglio the appeaser of the gay / transgender secularist cabal being pushed onto the Holy Catholic Church. No where, absolutely no where while in Uganda did Bergoglio say why this Uganda shrine exists, for it’s a clear and eloquent statement AGAINST the sodomite gay. morally corrupt lobby that Bergoglio is forcing on the Catholic Church.

Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis Emorut[Anglican Communion News Service] Pope Francis has made a visit to the Anglican shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo, and spoke of the “ecumenism of blood”.The Pope looked visibly pained and shocked as Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, primate of the Anglican Church of Uganda, explained how the martyrs were put to death on the orders of the King of Buganda in the late 19th Century for refusing to renounce their faith.Later, in a sermon during a Papal Mass outside the Catholic shrine, Pope Francis spoke of the sacrifice of the 45 men – 23 Anglicans and 22 Roman Catholics – saying that their “witness of love for Christ and his Church has truly gone ‘to the end of the earth.’“We remember also the Anglican martyrs whose deaths for Christ testify to the ecumenism of blood. All these witnesses nurtured the gift of the Holy Spirit in their lives and freely gave testimony of their faith in Jesus Christ, even at the cost of their lives, many at such a young age.“The gift of the Holy Spirit is a gift which is meant to be shared. It unites us to one another as believers and living members of Christ’s mystical Body. We do not receive the gift of the Spirit for ourselves alone, but to build up one another in faith, hope and love.”He said that the Ugandan Martyrs “had tended to their faith and deepened their love of God, they were fearless in bringing Christ to others, even at the cost of their lives. Their faith became witness; today, venerated as martyrs, their example continues to inspire people throughout the world. They continue to proclaim Jesus Christ and the power of his Cross.“Like the Apostles and the Uganda martyrs before us, we have received the gift of the Holy Spirit to become missionary disciples called to go forth and bring the Gospel to all. At times this may take us to the end of the earth, as missionaries to faraway lands.This is essential to the spread of God’s Kingdom, and I ask always for your generous response to this need. But we do not need to travel to be missionary disciples. In fact, we need only to open our eyes and see the needs in our homes and our local communities to realize how many opportunities await us.“Here too the Uganda martyrs show us the way. Their faith sought the good of all people, including the very King who condemned them for their Christian beliefs. Their response was to meet hatred with love, and thus to radiate the splendour of the Gospel. They did not simply tell the King what the Gospel does not allow, but showed through their lives what saying ‘yes’ to Jesus really means. It means mercy and purity of heart, being meek and poor in spirit, and thirsting for righteousness in the hope of an eternal reward.”During the tour of the new Uganda Martyrs Museum at the Anglican Shrine, Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley paused at the fire pit where the twenty-three Anglicans and twenty-two Roman Catholic converts to Christianity were brutally martyred on 3rd June 1886. “This is ecumenism,” Pope Francis told Archbishop Stanley.Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley Ntagali enter the Anglican Shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo. Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis Emorut“The Roman Catholic martyrs died for the same Jesus Christ as the Anglican martyrs,” Archbishop Stanley said. “Together, they suffered; together, they sacrificed; together, they sang. Together, their blood has been the seed of the church in Uganda.”It is a message that echoed Pope Francis’ words in July this year in St peter’s Square in Rome as he anticipated his visit to Uganda. “The blood of the martyrs makes us one,” he said. “We know that those who kill Christians in hatred of Jesus Christ, before killing, do not ask: ‘Are you an Evangelical, or [Anglican], or Orthodox?’ They say: ‘You are Christian,’ and behead them.”Last week, the same message was repeated by the Preacher to the Papal Household, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, in a sermon at Westminster Abbey ahead of the Church of England’s General Synod: “In many parts of the world people are killed and churches burned not because they are Catholic, or Anglican, or Pentecostals, but because they are Christians,” he said. “In their eyes we are already one! Let us be one also in our eyes and in the eyes of God.”Alluding to a traditional African proverb, Archbishop Stanley said, “If we want to go fast, let us go alone. As the wider Christian community in Uganda, however, if we want to go far, let us go together. This is why we were very happy to welcome the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church to the [Anglican] Church of Uganda.”During the Pope’s brief visit to the Anglican Martyrs’ Shrine, he also emphasised the importance of prayer by kneeling at the torture tree and offering a personal prayer.Pope Francis prays at the torture tree at the Anglican Shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo. Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis EmorutWhen he emerged from his private tour of the museum, he was welcomed by a very large, enthusiastic, and ululating crowd. He responded by inviting everyone to pray The Lord’s Prayer together.The assembled congregation then received a double apostolic blessing with Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley together conferring on everyone the Blessing of God Almighty: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.The House of Bishops of the Church of Uganda, along with the Provincial Heads of Laity and Clergy, the Provincial President of Mother’s Union, and several thousand Anglican clergy and laity arrived at the Martyrs’ Shrine at sunrise to prepare to welcome the Pope.Retired Archbishop Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo has spearheaded the development of the Uganda Martyrs’ Museum to ensure their legacy for future generations.Pope Francis unveiled a dedication stone and offered a prayer that the Uganda Martyrs would continue to inspire generations of youth to follow Christ. Later in the afternoon he met thousands of Ugandan youth in Kampala to encourage them to pray and be faithful to Christ.The President of Uganda and the First Lady were also present at the Anglican Martyrs’ Shrine.Pope Francis is the third Pope to visit the Anglican shrine. Paul VI visited on 2nd August 1969; five years earlier, in 1964, he had canonized the Roman Catholic martyrs. Pope John Paul II visited on 7th March 1993.

Les démocrates (à 55 %) et les républicains (à 59 %) sont statistiquement tout aussi susceptibles de dire que les élections sont une source très ou relativement importante de stress.L’angoisse va au-delà de qui va gagner ou perdre.« Je pense qu’il y a beaucoup d’anxiété du fait du manque de civilité et de la division » qui entourent ces élections, a déclaré Brian Baker, doyen de la cathédrale épiscopale de la Trinité de Sacramento (État de Californie), au cours d’une interview récente avec Episcopal News Service (ENS). « Tous ces jugements, cette polarisation, la stigmatisation des gens en groupes, les campagnes de peur – tout cela ronge l’âme de nos communautés ».Brian Baker pense que cette période électorale est l’occasion pour l’église de se montrer d’une manière différente, d’incarner ce qu’il appelle « la distinction nette » entre la culture de l’église et celle du monde. Par exemple, poursuit-il, élever des enfants dans une communauté paroissiale « devient moins facultatif… si vous voulez que votre enfant fasse partie d’une communauté qui parle vraiment du respect de la dignité de chaque être humain ».À mesure de l’intensification du climat politique, certaines congrégations ont organisé des rassemblements pour que leurs membres parlent de leurs préoccupations et discernent comment répondre dans la foi à cette période électorale. Certaines ont organisé l’inscription sur les listes électorales et d’autres prévoient des vigiles de prière la veille des élections et le jour des élections.« Tous les épiscopaliens qui soulèvent ce point maintenant voient tout à fait juste », déclare à ENS l’Honorable Byron Rushing, chef adjoint de la majorité à la Chambre des représentants du Massachusetts et également vice-président de la Chambre des députés de l’Église épiscopale, ajoutant que cette préoccupation lui parait sans précédent.La révérende Emily Mellott, recteure de Calvary Church à Lombard (État de l’Illinois), a organisé un débat de ce genre mi-octobre.« Ce dont nous avons parlé était principalement de la manière de nous placer sur le terrain de notre foi lorsque le discours public est si divisé et parait si éloigné de nos valeurs et de notre foi », explique-t-elle à ENS. « Nous avons parlé de la lecture de psaumes et des prophètes pour nous relier à d’autres époques où le peuple de Dieu se sentait perdu dans le chaos – c’est un modèle pour rester en contact avec Dieu lorsqu’il nous semble que Dieu est loin de ce chaos ».Les participants ont également parlé de la recherche des valeurs de l’engagement baptismal dans les informations et les débats électoraux, des valeurs telles que le respect et la justice, et ce qu’Emily Mellott appelle « des valeurs connexes comme l’intégrité, la patience, l’humilité ».« Puis une personne nous a rappelés que – comme antidote à la crainte de savoir si notre démocratie va survivre – la mission de l’église continuera quel que soit le candidat vainqueur », poursuit Emily Mellott. « Elle a suggéré que la confiance dans cette idée l’aide à traiter les craintes de cette période électorale comme une distraction et non pas comme une question essentielle, et nous permet de nous concentrer sur ce qui est important dans notre foi ».L’objectif de ces conversations, dit à ENS Mariann Budde, évêque du Diocèse de Washington, devrait être de « trouver un moyen pour que chaque voix soit entendue, pour permettre aux gens d’exprimer leur propre vérité puis de permettre à la communauté de progresser d’une manière qui fasse partie de la réconciliation dont nous avons besoin », au-delà de la communauté paroissiale.« L’angoisse et l’anxiété » avant et après l’élection, explique Brian Rushing, donne à l’église « une occasion supplémentaire de parler de notre approche de la réconciliation ».Article complet en anglais.

The bloody confrontation in Charlottesville between white supremacists and those opposing their racist ideology poignantly exposed and confirmed the political/racial/cultural/ideological divide that has existed in this country for quite some time.Even before this most recent incident, hate crimes and acts of violence perpetrated by those espousing an agenda of bigotry have soared. The Southern Poverty Law Center has chronicled over 2900 instances of hate-fueled attacks and intimidation since the 2016 election. Moreover, hate-speech, masquerading as free speech, broadcast over various media is on the rise as well. We would do well to be alarmed not only about the future of civil discourse in this country, but also about the fear, anxiety, and violence that bigotry and hatred in its myriad forms has spawned.Any and all pronouncements, demonstrations, and acts of violence intended to fuel hatred of another’s race, culture, religion, gender, or sexual orientation must be universally condemned whether the perpetrator is wearing a suit, a collar, khakis, or blue jeans. Recently, protests against the removal of Confederate commemorative statues have become a convenient venue for spreading racist propaganda. Yet, regardless of what we choose to call this rising tide of intolerance – “domestic terrorism”, “hate speech,” or “supremacist rhetoric” –we are increasingly being confronted by venomous ideologies and worldviews that seek to divide this country.In response, we look first to our elected leaders and those in authority to condemn in unconditional and unambiguous terms any speech or conduct that demeans, demonizes, and devalues the humanity of any of God’s children. The failure to do so not only gives apparent legitimacy and encouragement to those who espouse hate and violence, but also calls into question the moral integrity of those to whom we have entrusted the protection of “liberty and justice for all.”We as God’s people have a critical role to play. Edmund Burke once remarked that the only thing that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing. Remaining silent in the face of rhetoric and conduct that seeks to divide us and prevent us from coming together, is not an option. Charlottesville, Orlando, and Charleston stand as grim reminders that the intolerance and violence that is unfolding in city after city cannot be minimalized or trivialized. Lest we forget, none of us is free so long as one person is the object of unbridled and unmerited hate.Our failure to speak out boldly and courageously will be tantamount to making peace with oppression. In times like these, we are being reminded that our baptismal vow to “respect the dignity of every human being” compels us to speak out and to act out wherever we encounter hatred and bigotry.“Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle, the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. Without persistent effort, time itself will become an ally of the insurgent and primitive forces of irrational emotionalism and social destruction. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.We must not allow injustice to go unchallenged any longer. We will need to risk going to places where we have never been comfortable – engaging in conversations that risk being unpleasant and disturbing to us, our colleagues, and friends – conversations even with those we would rather avoid. But this we must do for our sake and the sake of future generations.Make no mistake, it will take all the strength, faith, and determination that we can muster for the “living of these days.” Let us pray for the wisdom and the courage to be uncompromising in our desire to be people of light united against the forces of darkness, bringing us one step closer to the Kingdom of God.The Rev.

Boston cathedral’s call to be a ‘house of prayer’ extends…

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Between 300 and 350 Muslims gather weekly in the Cathedral Church of St. Paul’s sanctuary for Friday prayers. The cathedral has offered the Muslim community a convenient downtown location to pray since August 2000. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Boston] Ayman Bassyouni arrives early at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul around noon each Friday to lay 15 rows of silk prayer rugs end to end on the sanctuary’s floor.An Egyptian, Bassyouni regularly attends jumah, or Friday prayers, at the Episcopal cathedral. He is one of a few hundred men and a handful of women – mostly immigrants from North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the Balkans – who pray there together.In Islam, Friday is considered the sacred day of worship; ordinarily, Muslims pray five times a day, but on Friday, males are obliged to pray in congregation at midday.The cathedral’s longstanding welcome of the Muslim community is one way it lives into its mission to be “a house of prayer for all people.” In the United States, where religious literacy is in decline but religion plays an increasing role in the cultural narrative, interfaith relationships build tolerance.Beginning on Sunday, in a partnership with Boston’s Jewish and Muslim communities, St. Paul’s will host “ABRAHAM: Out of One, Many.” Presented by CARAVAN, the Oct. 27-Dec. 6 exhibit explores the concept of living harmoniously through artists’ paintings interpreting Abraham’s life and faith journey.“Many people struggle to really understand their own tradition, let alone other people’s tradition; and my experience has been that when you’re in conversation with people of a different tradition, it causes you to learn more about your own tradition too,” said the Very Rev. Amy McCreath, dean of the cathedral, about the exhibit in a parish newsletter. “It feels to me really, really important right now that we understand our tradition and how it’s connected both to Judaism and Islam, and that we counter that sectarianism and that violence, both intellectually by knowing the history, [as well as through] building relationships with real people in real time.“Our hope is that parishes will bring a group to come and tour the exhibit, but even more we would hope that they would call the temple down the road and bring an interfaith group to come and experience it and talk about what they see together.”Ayman Bassyouni, an Egyptian who came to the United States three years ago, arrives early each Friday to lay silk prayer rugs on the floor in the sanctuary of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, Massachusetts. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe three major monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, trace their origins to Abraham – Islam through Abraham and Hagar’s son, Ishmael, and Judaism through Abraham and Sarah’s son, Isaac. And with God’s revelation of the Quran through his messenger, the Prophet Muhammad, the Arabians who eventually became Muslims also became “people of the book.” Still, the commonalities extend further, with all three religions rooted in popular movements against social inequality and the elite’s abuses of power.An estimated 3.45 million Muslims live in the United States, currently 1.1 percent of the population, but that number is expected to double by 2050. As a comparison, Jews make up 1.8 percent and Christians an estimated 79.5 percent of the U.S. population, according to the Pew Research Center.St. Paul’s location on Tremont Street across from Boston Common – America’s oldest park, founded in 1634 – and down the hill from the Massachusetts State House gives it a particular “proclamational kerygma,” said Bishop Alan M. Gates, who became bishop of Massachusetts five years ago.“It’s a really profound witness … and interfaith witness, peace witness, hospitality witness in the deepest sense of the word,” he said, during an interview with Episcopal News Service in his office, overlooking Boston Common.St. Paul’s underwent a $10 million renovation in 2014, and part of that renovation included installation of a footbath in the undercroft. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceFive years ago, St. Paul’s underwent a $10 million renovation. The pews were removed from the sanctuary; skylights were installed, brightening and opening the space to multiple uses; glass doors exposed the cathedral to the street; renovations to the undercroft were done to facilitate meetings and events; and a foot-washing station, where Muslims wash their feet in a ritual ablution before formal prayer, was installed.St. Paul’s, with its convenient location, first welcomed the Muslim community for Friday prayer in August 2000, after the congregation outgrew its space in another downtown church. For the first 15 years, Muslims gathered in the undercroft and eventually added a second shift as more men came, before moving upstairs into the sanctuary, which invited greater visibility. As fear of the other dominates in politics and the media, the longstanding relationship sends a message.“In this day and age, in particular post-9/11, right in the midst of a season in our political life when we are being encouraged to be wary of people of different faiths, especially immigrants, especially Muslims, we are a testament to the lie of that,” said McCreath, in an interview with ENS in the cathedral’s glass-walled chapel.Founded as a church in 1818 by wealthy, influential Boston patriots who sought to establish a uniquely “American Episcopal parish,” and the first example of Greek Revival architecture in Boston, St. Paul’s became a cathedral in 1912. The seventh bishop of Massachusetts, the Rt. Rev. William Lawrence, conceived of a cathedral aligned with the last line of Isaiah 56:7: “for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”Greater Boston, an area including 127 cities and towns, has a population that exceeds 8 million and that is increasingly diverse; the region is an academic and medical research hub.The Muslim community gathering for Friday prayer on Boston Common was first started in the 1990s by Mahmood Rahman’s father, an immigrant from Bangladesh who taught at Suffolk University, a private research university around the corner from the statehouse on Beacon Hill.“My dad was a professor at the business school over there, and like anything else, the genesis for this came about because there was a need,” said Rahman, one of the Friday prayers’ primary organizers. “Being a Muslim, the Friday noon prayer is our required congregational prayer. … It’s obligatory for men to come, listen to a sermon and have our prayer. All the other prayers you can do at home; you don’t have to go to the mosque. After the first couple of years being a professor at the business school, he realized he was missing obligatory Friday prayers, and this gnawed at and weighed heavily on him.”Rahman’s father realized the closest mosque was a 20-minute subway ride away, neither convenient nor practical alongside his teaching schedule. And at the time, Suffolk didn’t have a Muslim student association, so he asked the administration if he could use a room. The university consented and the prayers started with him and a couple of students; as word spread, 20 to 30 people not affiliated with the university began attending, and finally, for liability reasons, the congregation needed to find another space, which it did in a nearby church. After two or three years, the congregation attracted 100 people and “was bursting at the seams,” said Rahman.By 2000, given the growth and timing – the host church was preparing for a major renovation – it made sense for the Muslim congregation to find another space. One of its members, Ibrahim Ibrahim, the owner of the café next door to St. Paul’s, had become acquainted with the then-dean, the Very Rev. John “Jep” Streit Jr.Streit took Ibrahim on a tour of the undercroft, a place large enough to store prayer rugs and shoe racks. The two agreed it would work, “and so they started praying on Fridays almost right away,” said Streit, who served as St. Paul’s dean from 1995 to 2017.Streit says in hindsight he should have consulted then Massachusetts Bishop Tom Shaw, who was away at the time. When Shaw returned, he was giving a potential donor a tour of the cathedral when, to his surprise, they happened upon Muslims praying in the basement. The person said, “Who are these people? What are they doing here?” And the bishop didn’t know.Later, Shaw, clearly angry, approached Streit in his office and asked what Muslims were doing praying in the basement, to which Streit responded, “Well, we claim to be a house of prayer for all people. It’s either true or it isn’t.”“And he looked at me and said, ‘OK, just checking.’ He was fine with it; he was just embarrassed he didn’t know.”A year later, in a taxi to the airport, Shaw learned his driver prayed at St. Paul’s, Streit explained.“He [Shaw] always used to engage people, and he asked this guy, ‘Are you religious?’ And the guy said he was Muslim, and he said, ‘Oh, where do you pray?’ And he said, ‘Oh, there’s a church in Boston, it’s so wonderful; they let us pray in their church, and it’s so great.’ And Tom said, ‘That’s my church. I’m the bishop at that church.’”The taxi driver stopped the car, got out, hugged Shaw and said, “Wow, you have no idea what it means to us.”– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

National and international media outlets clamored to interview him about the sermon, which had offered some of the most memorable and uplifting moments from those high-profile nuptials.This year, Curry is again making the rounds of interviews, from NPR to People magazine, this time to support the release of his new book, “Love Is the Way.”That wedding sermon remains a popular topic of interviewers, and as Curry told People, he has drawn inspiration from the conversations it generated.“In two years, I’ve had more of those kinds of conversations about faith and life and love, than I had in 40 years,” he said in the People interview, published online last week.NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro caught up with Curry for an interview on “Weekend Edition” that aired on Sept. 20. On NBC, Curry appeared by video Sept. 22 to talk with “Today Show” host Hoda Kotb. And Curry spoke by phone with Episcopal News Service for a Q&A about the book, also on Sept. 22, the day the book was released.
