She was first elected in 1992 and is standing for re-election on Nov. 6.The election will take place during the 77th meeting of General Convention July 5-12 in Indianapolis, Indiana.Alexander is the second candidate to announce her intention to stand for election. The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, who just completed a six-year term on the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, announced her plans on June 5.The person elected will succeed Bonnie Anderson, who has served two three-year terms as House of Deputies president. Anderson announced May 23 that she would not ask convention to elect her to a third and final term as president.Nominations from the House of Deputies floor for the office of president will open July 9. The deputies will host a “meet the nominees” gathering the evening of July 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (the location to be announced). The election for president will take place on July 10.A cradle Episcopalian, Alexander has served in a variety of roles throughout the church, as well as serving in a variety of organizations on a local, state and national level, according to the release.In addition to serving on the Church Pension Fund board of trustees, Alexander is on the General Convention’s World Mission legislative committee for the upcoming session.She is a member of the Diocese of North Carolina Standing Committee and is the companion diocese coordinator for the church’s Province IV. Alexander serves on the Botswana-North Carolina Companion Link Committee, chairs the dispatch of business for the diocesan convention and is a member of the Micah Initiative’s microfinance committee at Christ Church in Charlotte where she lives.“I have had lots of responsibility over my lifetime on different committees and assignments throughout the church, and I bring a willingness to serve and work, a passion for social justice issues and a desire to ensure all people are welcome in this church,” Alexander said in the release.Alexander lives in Charlotte and has two children and five grandchildren.With more than 800 members, the General Convention is one of the largest legislative bodies in the world.The president of the House of Deputies serves as vice president of the Executive Council and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (the Episcopal Church’s corporate entity). The president presides over the House of Deputies at General Convention, appoints clergy and lay members of all the standing commissions and convention legislative committees, and performs many functions of liaison, development, and opportunity between conventions.The position is unpaid, but in the 2010-2012 triennium General Convention provided (line 140-145 here) a budget of nearly $589,000 to cover Anderson’s expenses, to compensate staff to assist her and to cover the costs of maintaining an advisory council, which the president appoints.Meanwhile, the office of vice president has been vacant since Feb. 15, 2010, when Diocese of Minnesota Bishop Brian Prior, who had been vice president, was ordained bishop.At the organizing session of the House of Deputies on July 5, the house will elect a vice president to serve at the 77th convention. Diocese of Eau Claire Deputy Scott Kirby has agreed to be nominated to serve as vice president, Anderson has said. Other persons may also be nominated from the floor. If Kirby is elected, he has indicated that he will not stand for election for any office for the next triennium.Nominations for House of Deputies vice president will open July 10 and that election will take place the next day, July 11. The vice president of the House of Deputies must be a different order than the president.The president-elect and vice president-elect take office at the adjournment of the regular meeting of the House of Deputies at which they are elected and continue in office until the adjournment of the following regular meeting of the General Convention. They are both eligible to stand for election for three three-year terms in each office.

Rev. Chad Gandiya, is the lawful trustee of diocesan church properties. This decision means Anglicans will once again be able to worship in their church buildings, and the diocese can retake control of other properties including schools, clinics and orphanages.It is the end of a six year-long battle with an excommunicated bishop, Nolbert Kunonga, who left the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) and founded his own rival church. His claims to church properties in Harare and elsewhere in Zimbabwe resulted in worshippers being kicked out of churches — often violently — and clergy losing their homes and places of work.Gandiya said he was “elated” at the news that the Supreme Court had ruled in their favor. In an open letter to the church and its supporters he wrote: “My dear sisters and brothers in Christ, this is your victory! This is your hour! Give all the glory to our almighty Father in heaven. I want to immediately call upon all our people to be gracious in winning the legal battle. Now let the work begin!“With the good news about the Supreme Court judgment in our favor, I am once again calling on all members of our beloved diocese and friends both near and far to heed to our call to join us in…rebuilding the diocese.”Gandiya has asked every parish to undertake an inspection of all the buildings they were banned from using and then renovate them. But more than the buildings themselves, the bishop called on parishes to rebuild those who had suffered through the persecution.“The rebuilding of God’s people in our diocese should be a priority also,” he said. “Our people were greatly traumatized by the persecution of the last five years. They are in need of healing. The spiritual and pastoral care of our people through holistic ministry should be reflected in all our diocesan and parish programs. In many ways we had already started doing this. None-the-less, we need to strengthen it.”Archbishop Albert Chama, primate of CPCA, told ACNS that the decision was also great news for the province as a whole. “We thank God for the outcome of the Supreme Court in Zimbabwe,” he said. “We know that God has always been on our side, and today this has come clear for the Province of Central Africa and in particular for the Anglican Church in Zimbabwe. We thank all the people who have been praying and standing with us.”Fighting Kunonga’s case through the courts has cost CPCA considerable funds. Over the years, appeals were made by the province to the rest of the Anglican Communion for help to continue paying for legal fees. The investment has paid off, and the church in Zimbabwe is now looking forward to a brighter future in which services can be held in churches again rather than outside or in alternative venues such as pubs and sports clubs.Shortly after the news, messages of support and congratulations were sent to Gandiya by members of the Anglican Communion, including Bishop of Southwark Christopher Chessun, whose diocese has been a long-time supporter of the Anglican Church in Zimbabwe.This has been a battle that has seen the Anglican Communion as a global family praying and acting together. Anglicans around the world have been praying for the situation, and last year the archbishops of Canterbury, Southern Africa, Central Africa, and Tanzania together met with the country’s president Robert Mugabe. During the meeting they presented him with a a dossier compiled by the bishops in Zimbabwe which gave a full account of the abuses to which Anglicans had been subject. They asked then that the president use his powers as Head of State to put an end to all unacceptable and illegal behavior.While the persecution lessened following that visit, it has taken until today for the legal system in Zimbabwe to finally bring an end to this persecution and injustice.center_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Zimbabwe Anglicans to return to churches after Supreme Court ruling Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Youth Minister Lorton, VA Comments (4) Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector Knoxville, TN AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Press Release Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Albany, NY This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Belleville, IL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

I have done this before on others behalf. It is one of the most important things we can do to help others. Because I had been affected by the policy in place, I did not want others to suffer like I had. I did make a difference with my bringing the issue to my local legislator. She went with me to Augusta and I read a letter I had written. It was extremely powerful for me. I hope you take witnesses to share their own experiences of being poor, hungry or opreseed etc. They need to be there with you in with their own voices. This adds passion that you cannot get across to the legislation with just a speech. The legislators need to go see the poverty and hunger. They won’t and don’t. Bring it to them with people, pictures and other types of visuals. I hope I have helped with my little expounding!

Calvin Sanborn of Maine share their perspectives on the theological basis for advocacy in the public sphere and what that might look like at the both the diocesan and parish level. Photo: Heidi Shott[Episcopal News Service] Since the first days of his episcopate in 2008, Diocese of Maine Bishop Stephen Lane hasn’t shied away from raising a prophetic voice in the public square. As a church leader, he has spoken publicly in newspapers and at the state legislature in support of marriage equality, common sense gun laws, state budgets that ensure protections for vulnerable families, and against hate speech and intolerance.In late 2014, however, questions like, “How do we engage Episcopalians in our congregations to get involved in advocacy?” and “How do we determine which issues to direct our focus?” led Diocesan Council to create a Public Policy Steering Group. Among the members invited to serve was John Hennessy, a parishioner at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Portland. Hennessy spent 20 years at the State House in Augusta as a lobbyist for progressive causes, and had recently returned to private consulting after five years as the policy director for Maine AARP.During its first and only conference call, members of the steering group decided to create a statewide network modeled on the Church’s Episcopal Public Policy Network to teach Maine Episcopalians how to advocate with local, state and national policymakers about gospel issues of poverty, homelessness, hunger, and justice for the incarcerated, immigrants and all those at the margins.Although a statewide public policy network resonated, volunteer members of the steering group and diocesan staff were already stretched too thin to make it happen. Then a chance call to the Rev. Chuck Wynder, the Episcopal Church’s officer for social justice and advocacy engagement, made all the difference. A grant program to support statewide public policy networks was included in the 2013-15 triennial budget. Since funds were still available, Wynder encouraged Hennessy to write a grant application. Suddenly, the creation of the Maine Episcopal Network for Justice seemed more like a reality.By November 2015, with assurances of a one-year grant of $30,000 and an $8,000 commitment from the Diocese of Maine, it hired Hennessy as the network’s part-time director.“Maine has developed an innovative approach for advocacy and engagement and demonstrated a collaborative spirit that can serve as a replicable model for dioceses in other states,” said Wynder. “As The Episcopal Church works to enhance our network of Episcopal statewide public policy networks, I look forward to drawing on their successes and lessons learned.”“MENJ was created, in part, to address the growing interest of people across the diocese to actively and meaningfully engage in the public square. One of the many benefits of reaching out to people is helping them realize they are not alone,” said Hennessy. “Helping connect people who share a similar point of view on an issue has been very exciting. Conversely, hosting discussions with people who approach their position from differing places and can maintain civil discourse has been very rewarding too.”Over the last year, Hennessy has visited more than a dozen Maine congregations, hosted an over-subscribed training session at St. Luke’s Cathedral, conducted workshops at diocesan training events, advocated with legislators in Augusta, and supported the work of two statewide referendums: one to raise the minimum wage for Maine workers, which passed in November; and one to close background-check loopholes in gun laws, which did not.MENJ also partnered with the diocesan Compensation Committee to develop a resolution that passed at Maine’s Convention in October to raise the minimum wage for lay employees, including church child care workers, to $12 an hour in 2017. The intent is to continue to raise the minimum each year until it reaches the Living Wage standard of $15 an hour in 2020.“We’re excited about several upcoming events in the coming year,” said Hennessy. “We will join with interfaith, ecumenical, and community partners to host a two-day Advocacy Days session in March. The first day we will offer training and the second participants will visit the State House to meet with their legislators. Because we have several congregations with groups of young people interested in social justice issues, we will do church-based training for them this winter so they will only miss one day of school.” A plan to take a group of young people to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Maine’s congressional delegation is also in the works.Hennessy made clear that Maine Episcopalians never envisioned doing this work alone. Because the dioceses of northern England share many common concerns, Lane tested the interest of the bishops of New Hampshire, Vermont, and the New England Lutheran Synod about becoming partners. The response was enthusiastic by both bishops and their staffs.New Hampshire’s new Missioner for Community Engagement Laura Simoes signed on from the start, “Advocacy work, done by our parishes, has the power to change laws, change minds, and change us as individuals. The Episcopal Church of New Hampshire has energy and vitality. We are now growing our agency and gaining experience, to influence policy for the benefit of our communities. We welcome the chance to share in this work with our friends in Maine.”On Dec. 3, Bishop Robert Hirschfeld of New Hampshire and the Rev. Calvin Sanborn, rector of St. George’s, York Harbor, Maine, gathered with about 50 other Episcopalians at St. Thomas’, Dover, New Hampshire, to discuss the theological basis for advocacy in the public square. “Advocacy: Speaking Our Faith” was the first training co-hosted by MENJ and the Diocese of New Hampshire. (Click here for videos from “Advocacy: Speaking Our Faith.”)Hirschfeld recounted the passage in Matthew where Jesus feeds the multitudes: “Jesus says he has compassion for the crowds. The Greek word is splagchnizomai, the same word from which we get the word spleen. Jesus feels compassion in his guts. It is an incarnate word; it moves one physically. It’s not an intellectual exercise. Compassion is something we experience suddenly when we recognize we have gone to the deepest level of humanity with somebody who is in need, somebody who is not like us. It’s out of that abundant compassion that Jesus is impelled to act, that we are impelled to act.“We believe this church is not just a town meeting with hymns…but that we are actually the Body of Christ, and that we are God’s hands and feet in the world.”With the first joint training session concluded, Hennessy expressed confidence that the concept of faith-rooted organizing and advocacy will spread across the church. “Our first event in New Hampshire demonstrated we can use a shared approach to discussing the role of advocacy in the church which is rooted firmly in theological doctrines across a spectrum of issues. We look forward to including our friends in Vermont in the months ahead and will work with the Office of Social Justice on a conference for all Episcopalians in Province 1 to be held later this spring.”Lane also expressed his confidence in the network as an exemplar to the wider church. “We believe this model offers the possibility of renewed participation by Episcopalians in the public square and enhances our relationships with other Christians as we seek to ‘seek and serve Christ in every person, loving our neighbors and ourselves’” he said.“It’s work not only to change the world, but work that can change us, breaking open our hearts and inviting us into the compassion of Jesus.”– Heidi Shott is canon for communication and advocacy for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine.

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Rector Hopkinsville, KY Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Featured Events Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Bath, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Course Director Jerusalem, Israel [29 de marzo, 2019] Los episcopales y amigos preocupados por toda la creación de Dios se unen al Obispo Presidente Michael Curry en el compromiso de actuar para proteger y renovar el mundo de Dios y todos los que lo consideran su hogar. El objetivo es reunir al menos 1,000 promesas con compromisos personales concretos para el Día de la Tierra, el 22 de abril.Edificando a partir de la declaración de la Visión Episcopal para el Cuidado de la Creación, desarrollada por la Oficina del Obispo Presidente y el Consejo Asesor sobre la Mayordomía de la creación para la 79ª Convención General, esta promesa,  y la Guía de Reflexión, que la acompaña, son una manera tangible y práctica de demostrar amor por el mundo de Dios.Como señaló el Obispo Curry, “muchos de nosotros estamos listos para comprometernos y ayudar a cuidar de la creación de Dios. Como dijo la Biblia: Dios amó tanto al mundo que dio a su único Hijo. Eso significa el mundo real: todos nosotros y todo. Y esta es una manera en la que podemos participar para ayudar a cuidar de la creación de Dios. Esto es querido y cercano a mi corazón y al corazón de Dios”.“Esperamos que la gente entienda que esto es más que agregar su firma a una petición”, dijo la Reverenda Melanie Mullen, directora de cuidado de la reconciliación, la justicia y la creación. “Ore con la promesa y la Guía de Reflexión durante la Cuaresma. Piense en lo que ama de la creación de Dios, dónde su corazón se rompe por la injusticia ambiental y cómo le gustaría simplificar su vida: consuma menos, comparta más. Luego, para el lunes de Pascua, Día de la Tierra, celebremos nuestro compromiso compartido”.Las diócesis de todas partes están aceptando el compromiso. En su ordenación y consagración del 2 de marzo, como Obispa de la Diócesis Episcopal de Kansas, la Reverendísima Cathleen Chittenden Bascom y el Obispo Presidente Michael Curry animaron a la congregación a tomar la promesa de cuidar de la creación.Los tres elementos principales tanto de la visión como de la promesa: amar, liberar y dar vida, surgen directamente del llamado a vivir como la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús y como personas que viven el Camino del Amor:Anhelamos crecer en una relación amorosa, liberadora y vivificante con la creación deDios. En este momento urgente, nos comprometemos a proteger y renovar esta buenaTierra y a todos los que la llaman su hogar. Juntos, nos comprometemos a accionesespecíficas, confiando en que podemos hacer más como un cuerpo que lo que podríacualquier persona sola.AMAR: Compartiremos nuestras historias de amor y preocupación por la Tierra y nosvincularemos con otros que se preocupan de proteger la red sagrada de la vida.LIBERAR: Nos uniremos a los más vulnerables a los efectos nocivos de la degradaciónambiental y el cambio climático: mujeres, niños, pobres y comunidades de color,refugiados, migrantes.DAR VIDA: Cambiaremos nuestros hábitos y elecciones para vivir de manera mássencilla, humilde y gentilmente en la Tierra.La Guía de Reflexión que se acompaña se creó en colaboración con la Diócesis Episcopal de California e incluye meditaciones, oraciones, pasajes de la Escritura y de acción relacionados con cada elemento de la promesa. La misma diócesis está lanzando una oportunidad relacionada con el cuidado de la creación: un rastreador de carbono que ayuda a individuos, congregaciones y a diócesis a evaluar y reducir el uso de energía y el impacto climático. Descubra más sobre el rastreador y otros recursos en https://www.diocal.org/climate“Este no es un nuevo plan de estudios que usted necesita para atascarse en una Cuaresma ya atareada”, dijo Amy Cook, directora del grupo de trabajo de formación en la fe de la Diócesis Episcopal de California. “Para muchos de nosotros, la Cuaresma es naturalmente un momento para la reflexión y la simplicidad. Esperamos que la promesa y el proceso de reflexión conduzcan al pueblo a un profundo discernimiento y compromiso con la nueva vida en esta Pascua y más allá”.Obtenga más información sobre el ministerio de Cuidado de la Creación en La Iglesia Episcopal enwww.episcopalchurch.org/creation.

The ACO is the secretariat of the global family of 41 Anglican churches and comprises staff from the Anglican Alliance and the Lambeth Conference Company in addition to the ACC. Today’s announcement concerns only those staff employed by the ACC.The review was commissioned by the Anglican Communion’s Standing Committee in May 2020 and was carried out by an independent group drawn from across the regions of the Communion, chaired by Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba, primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa. That group reported to the Standing Committee in September last year and since then a sub-group of the Standing Committee, chaired by vice chair Canon Margaret Swinson, has been working to develop the proposals, which were announced to staff last week.Read the entire article here.

Apopka Run-off Election to Cost $28,000

first_img Reply Sure can tell it’s April Fool’s Day! All the Apopka City Council candidates were campaigning out on the corners of Welch and Rock Spring Roads this evening. Almost all the kooky characters were there. Didn’t see the Easter Bunny, though. I read where someone even wanted to fire the Easter Bunny, so I guess the Easter bunny got a pink slip, and a six figure severance package, and hopped off to the next city slicker job. Ya’ll better get to campaigning! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Tenita Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Pastor Bankson, what golf courses do you play golf at? Do you think the city will try to buy RSR golf course, if the owner wants to sell it? Or do you think there will be homes built there, are some other usage of the course, such as a private park, or something else? Would you support buying the golf course if it is for sale by the owner, if you are elected? Mama Mia Tenita April 1, 2016 at 7:55 pm March 31, 2016 at 7:47 pm Reply Reply Please enter your comment!

Now I find out that church is in the 5700 block of North Pine Hills Road, in Orlando and that there were over a hundred City of Apopka voters who voted there????? This is strange to me. Is it any wonder why people are confused on the City of Apopka, and unincorporated areas of Apopka? When did the borders extend that far over??? Where do those people live that voted there, that are in the City of Apopka? I am not saying that they aren’t, I am only saying, it is strange to me. Mama Mia Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here A little different focus here, than the subject in the in the article above, but I want to comment. The drawings and future plans for the restaurant on Lake Apopka with the open air dining up in a high level setting, looking out over the lake, are very attractive. How is that going to work out with those massive annual shad fish kills and the stink?? Also the smoke from the controlled burns that they keep conducting?? Those eco-tourists are in for an experience they won’t forget! Commissioner Arrowsmith, I will ask you the same question as Pastor Bankson, in the above question. Sammy, do you play golf? It does not matter, I will ask you the same question. Also Kyle, I know you play golf, so you can answer too, the same question, as the others. This is certainly going to be interesting, as I know the RSR residents are interested in what you all have to say about this subject. April 1, 2016 at 9:16 pm One more comment, and I am done. The Christ Sanctuafied Church, at 5717 North Pine Hills Road in Orlando, was a designated polling place for a small section of the City of Apopka’s voters for the March 15, 2016 election for Apopka Council. According to Apopka Chief’s Facebook page, it was the poll for a small section of voters in the north west area of Apopka. Why then would they have the poll way over there, from the south east area of Apopka? Who handled that and set that up? And there were over a hundred people who voted there. I don’t get it??? April 1, 2016 at 7:06 pm Tenita Absentee Balloting to Cost $17,000 in Apopka Run-off ElectionThe Apopka Voice has obtained a copy of the Orange County Supervisor of Elections, cost estimate for the  April 12, 2016 Apopka Run-off Election and the details are surprising.The Orange County Supervisor of Elections is estimating that 6,500 Absentee Ballots will be mailed to Apopka voters.  According to Cindy Clark, Senior Deputy Supervisor Elections, 4,648  Absentee Ballots have already been mailed.  If the number of Absentee Ballots does hit 6,500 the he Supervisor of Elections office the cost will be nearly $17,000.The next largest cost component is the printing and mailing of Sample Ballot Post Cards.  Of the $28,000 estimate $4,400 is allocated to this activity.The Supervisor has included to the cost to print 10,500 ballots during Early Voting and on Election Day.  At a cost of $0.2975 each the total cost is estimated at just over $3,100.Labor costs for the Apopka Run-off Election is estimated to be only $1,640.Four categories account for $26,000 of the $28,000 estimate:Absentee Ballots:  $16,893Sample Ballots:  $4,400Election Day Ballot Printing:  $3,124Election Day Labor:  $1,640The actual cost of the Apopka Run-off Election will depend upon the number of Absentee Ballots requested and the actual turnout on Election Day.The Apopka Run-off Election cost estimate does not include the cost of legal advertising or the cost to use the Apopka Community Center as a polling place on April 12, 2016.The Supervisor of Elections cost estimate for the 2016 Apopka Run-off election can be viewed here.To request an Absentee ballot us this link .  The deadline is April 6th at 5:00 PM.
