first_imgSchalk Brits takes on Quins in DecemberSCHALK BRITS prepared for Saracens’ game against Sale the unconventional way last week – with hardly any sleep at all. The hooker’s first baby, son Christian, was born on Thursday, leaving Brits with little option but to travel to Edgeley Park for the Friday night game with no more than 40 winks. But the new arrival proved to be a good luck charm for the team, as they thrashed Sale 9-45 to briefly top the Aviva Premiership table.Now Brits and Saracens are preparing to take on Harlequins, who regained the top spot by beating Bath at home on Saturday. The game will be played at Wembley, where Saracens have made themselves a home from home, having won six of the seven games they’ve played at the home of football. They have also managed to overcome Quins in every one of their last five meetings, and Brits can’t wait to run out in front of a sell out crowd.“Wembley is always a special place to go and play rugby,” said Brits. “We love playing there, it’s a special ground with a great history and we have a fairly good record there too.“We’ve played there a number of times so it feels like home now. This weekend we’re expecting our biggest ever crowd, which is what we’ve always wanted.“Quins have played some good rugby this season, but we are also where we need to be and it’ll be great to play against the leaders of the table. It’s time for us to get into fifth gear now. The weather will be good too, so there will be some good running rugby on show.”How Barnet Copthall is expected to lookSaracens will go into this weekend’s game buoyed by the knowledge that they are one step closer to moving to their own ground. The club is intending to revive Barnet Copthall stadium, and it was announced this week that their plans have been given the green light by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the final hurdle that needed to be cleared before official planning permission can be granted. The club will play in their new location from next season, and after testing times getting plans approved, it’s a move that cannot come too soon for all involved.Brits added: “Vicarage Road has been good to us, but we cannot wait to move to our new ground. We want a place to call home, and the sooner it happens the better.”As well as a top of the table clash, fans will have a chance of winning £250,000 in the Domino’s Kicking Challenge, and the pre-match entertainment will include a performance by McFly, starting at 2.15pm. Saracens got acquainted with the band when they joined their training session last month. The experience turned bitter sweet for Brits, who entered into an eating competition with I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here winner and McFly member Dougie Poynter, which required him to eat the sort of food that is more commonly found on reality TV than in a rugby club’s changing room.“It was absolutely horrible,” Brits said of the competition. “I thought it would be a normal eating contest, like who could eat the most hot dogs in two minutes. But when I saw the five plates of food I thought, there’s something fishy going on here. Referee: Greg Garner TAGS: HarlequinsSaracens “The penis was the worst bit.

Perform over a 10m area.Start the caterpillar (above left) in a press up position. Keep legs straight as you walk your toes towards your palmsWalk hands back to the start. Extend through your upper back I Lateral hurdle walk-over (right): keep chest high, legs straight I Step over and back without breaking at the hipKey Movement 1:These exercises improve sub-max/max strength. Both are technically easy to perform and will benefit all athletes.Romanian deadlift (left): good for posterior chain strength, keep back straight and chest out. Bend knees slightlyLower the bar as far as your hamstrings will allow I Dumb-bell bench press (right): weights shoulder-width apart I Lower to just below shoulders, keeping lower arms parallelKey Movement 2:I call these exercises ‘accessories’.

first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED Joyful and triumphant: England scrum-half Ben Youngs leads the celebrations at the final whistle in DublinBy Sarah Mockford at the Aviva StadiumIn a nutshellA DIFFERENT type of win to the one over Scotland at Twickenham last week but a win nonetheless for England. The wet weather in Dublin dictated that this was never going to be a classic in terms of attacking rugby – the sheer number of handling errors from Ireland putting paid to that idea – but the pure physicality of the contest and the ferociousness of both teams’ defence was somehow absorbing.Kick-start: Owen Farrell slotted four penaltiesThe kickers dominated – Owen Farrell’s four penalties securing the visitors’ victory – but it was England’s reaction to James Haskell’s yellow card that made the difference. Ireland had started the second half strongly and Ronan O’Gara levelled the scores at 6-6 when Haskell was sent to the sin-bin at a ruck. But this seemed to spark a change in England – they drove the Irish back upfield, kept their discipline and slotted two penalties of their own to secure the win.Key momentMike Brown sent an up-and-under skywards in the 65th minute, Rob Kearney collected it but was brought down by Courtney Lawes, allowing Brown to get over the ball quickly and force the Ireland full-back to concede a penalty for holding on. Farrell slotted the points and England were able to hold on to their six-point lead.Star manAlex Goode was exemplary at the back for England. Solid under the high ball in tough conditions, he also chose his kicking options well, either gaining territory for his team or putting the Irish under pressure. He presents a threat with ball in hand, too, when he joins the line. The Saracens full-back always seems to make the right decisions at the right time and will certainly have enhanced his Lions prospects.Lions watch – HotGeoff Parling – The go-to man in the England engine room. He did well in the lineout, put in a massive performance in defence and carried strongly too.Talisman: Brian O’Driscoll tries to break throughBrian O’Driscoll – More glimpses of class (take that first-half pass to Keith Earls) from the Ireland centre and new dad. Plus he showed guts when playing on when in noticeable discomfort. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Chris Robshaw – Solid as ever from England’s skipper. He had plenty of involvement in the game and crucially pulled his players together when they were down to 14 men.ColdCian Healy – The Ireland prop is always an aggressive player but in this match he crossed the line and his indiscipline will be a concern for Warren Gatland (and Ireland if the expected citing happens).Jamie Heaslip – Too many basic errors from the Ireland No 8. Yes, it was raining but players in the North are used to playing in the wet and should be able to hold onto the ball more often than not.StatsIreland had more territory (57%) and possession (58%) and made more carries (87 to 55) but couldn’t capitalise on those advantages. Mike Brown topped the metres made list for the second week running with 76 while Chris Robshaw made the most tackles with 14.ScorersIreland – Pens: O’Gara 2.

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In control: Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips releases the ball as Wales ran out comfortable winners 9-26 winners in RomeBy Owain JonesIn a nutshellWALES TRAVELLED to Rome with a fragile confidence but they will have returned from their Italian sojourn with more than a little gladiatorial swagger about them. In dank, wet conditions, they had the better of the opening 40 minutes yet had only a three-point advantage to show for it at the break, thanks to Leigh Halfpenny’s trusty boot. The second-half started with Italy almost gaining a crucial score after the Welsh backs treated the ball like a hot plate but Italy failed to capitalise. Within minutes they’d driven into Italian territory and after a chip and collect from Dan Biggar. At the ruck, a dink over the top from Mike Phillips was not picked up by the Italian defence and Jonathan Davies picked up to dot down.With a ten point gap, Italy stepped up the pressure but with constant handling errors ruined any chance of building momentum. On 61 minutes, Wales drove into the Italian half and created an attacking platform, it was left to Dan Biggar to release Alex Cuthbert with a clever pass to score his second try of the tournament. With another unerring Halfpenny penalty and a 26-9 lead Wales defended well, failing to concede a try for a second successive game. The Italian job had been completed. Next stop Murrayfield.Touch down: Jonathan Davies scores first tryKey momentMinutes after escaping a potentially match-defining score from Italy, Wales gained some field position and Dan Biggar lofted a high ball, bravely retrieving it. From the resulting ruck, Mike Phillips again lofted the ball over the Italian defence. Kris Burton and Edoardo Gori failed to deal with a wickedly bouncing ball and Jonathan Davies was quickest to react, gathering and dropping over the line unopposed. After Halfpenny slotted the conversion, Wales finally had the safety gap they needed to start building a lead.Star man – Dan BiggarThirteen may be unlucky for some but this was a coming of age performance from the Ospreys pivot on his 13th Wales appearance. His chip in creating the winning try for George North in Paris, had helped a hitherto tentative Biggar settle in a Wales shirt and he put in a much improved performance in Rome. Steady under the high ball, twice taking difficult balls to return with interest, he was integral to Wales’ first try and second try. He also had no problem taking the ball and driving into defenders and threw himself into tackles. It was a performance that showed the boy from Gorseinon was far more than just a points machine. Bravissimo, Dan.Lions watchHotGethin JenkinsStaying at home in Wales seems to suit the returning Cardiff Blue who has improved steadily throughout the Championship with regular rugby. In Italy, he was aggressive in the tackle, competitive in the tight and looked highly motivated. Even though he’s been written off by many, with 97 caps, you’d wager he fancies a third Lions tour rather than winning his 100th cap out in Japan. Unlucky to pick up a calf-injury late-on.Toby FaletauWhile there were no show stopping line-breaks, Faletau always offers himself for contact, driving in tight exchanges and putting in a huge amount of the donkey work – he again reached double-figures for tackles. Faletau is the antithesis of a showboating No 8 but is consummate team-man and a likely tourist.Committment: Justin Tipuric tries to charge down BurtonCold Andrew CoombsThe Newport Gwent Dragon has been a splendid addition to the Wales squad, putting in two tremendous shifts against Ireland and France, but here he was less influential in the loose and missed the odd tackle. He was replaced by the experienced Alun-Wyn Jones after 52 minutes.Jamie RobertsThe burly No 12 didn’t do anything wrong but for a player of his stature and experience, he had a quiet game and was unable to influence play. He will want a strong finish to the tournamentStatisticsItaly ran 303 metres with the ball compared to 224 metres from WalesItaly made 80 tackles, missing eight with a success rate of 91%, Wales made 132 tackles, missing seven, with a 95% success rateWales’ top tacklers were Ryan Jones with 16, Justin Tipuric with 15 and Toby Faletau with 12.

first_img AFTER THREE months of investigation, it has been ruled that 21-year-old Stade Aurillac wing Louis Fajfrowski, who passed away in August, died from ‘lethal fibrillation’ following a hefty tackle to the chest.An initial autopsy proved inconclusive in its search for a cause of death. However, yesterday a ruling of “accidental death” came in, with local prosecutor Olivier Clemecon saying Fajfrowski had suffered “precordial chest trauma, responsible for a lethal heart attack on a pathological heart”.According to La Montagne, a deputy prosecutor also said the hit to Fajfrowski’s chest was “responsible for a heart attack with acceleration of the rhythm that led to his death”.Known in medicine as commotio cordis, it is an incredibly rare occurrence when a blow to the chest offsets the rhythm of the heart. If a blow occurs during the most infinitesimal break in the electrical activity of the heart, the heart cells can fire off randomly as they attempt to reset.This means there is no heart beat, which leads to no pulse, no blood pressure, and the subject will collapse or lose consciousness.Prompt recognition of this condition is vital and use of a defibrillator can reset the cells. However, it is believed that every minute of delay reduces the chance of a defibrillator working during cardiac arrest by around 7-10%.According to reports, Fajfrowski was helped to the changing rooms after the incident near the hour-mark of the match against Rodez. There were several attempts made by medics to revive him in the changing rooms before he passed away.

It is an unfortunate accident”.Shortly after the incident the ProD2 team tweeted: “Stade Aurillacois sadly confirms the passing of youth player Louis Fajfrowski.“Louis died after feeling faint in the dressing room during a friendly match. Stade Aurillacois is in mourning and everyone at the club sends their heartfelt condolences to his family.”Related: Vicky Macqueen: my brush with deathCommotio Cordis is one of the first considerations when an athlete succumbs to sudden cardiac death.World Rugby has its own immediate care management group, which has implemented three levels of training for incidents like this. Around 6,000 people have now done World Rugby’s level one first aid in rugby course – which includes the use of defibrillators – and there are level two and three courses for those operating at higher levels of competition.You can find out more here: https://playerwelfare.worldrugby.org/firstaidinrugbylast_img read more

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] Además de trabajar con miras a un proyecto del presupuesto 2016-2018, el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal aprobó el 27 de octubre varias resoluciones sobre diversos asuntos sociales que enfrentan la Iglesia y el mundo.Motivado por la labor de sus comités permanentes conjuntos sobre Promoción Social e Interconexión (A&N) y Misión y Ministerio Locales (LMM), el Consejo hacía constar que:Se oponía a las prisiones con fines de lucro e instruía al Tesorero a que evitara invertir en compañías que poseyeran y administraran prisiones y centros de detención con fines de lucro.Llamaba a la Iglesia a proseguir la labor de la Resolución 2009-D035 de la Convención General, Repudio de la Doctrina del Descubrimiento, y la 2012-A128, Examinar el Impacto de la Doctrina del Descubrimiento concientizándose a sí misma acerca del impacto que la doctrina tiene aún sobre el mundo y sobre la Iglesia; yLlamaba a la Iglesia a recordar y vivir en [el espíritu de] la Carta Pastoral de la Cámara de Obispos de marzo de 1994 sobre “el pecado del racismo” y la subsecuente Carta Pastoral de 2006 “Un llamado al Pacto”, y a pronunciarse en solidaridad, en la valoración y protección de todas las personas de color que son discriminadas o, en su defecto, tratadas injustamente o perjudicadas por motivo de su raza o del color de su piel”.Los miembros del A&N y el LMM se reunieron juntos el 25 de octubre durante la mayor parte del día para un conversatorio acerca del racismo, la justicia racial en la Iglesia y en el mundo, y lo que la Iglesia podría hacer para continuar combatiendo el racismo. El debate también incluyó al misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para la Justicia y Promoción Sociales Charles Allen Wynder, Jr., la misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal para la Reconciliación Racial Heidi Kim y Navita Jones, presidente del Comité sobre Antirracismo del Consejo.Lelanda Lee, presidente del A&N, le dijo al resto del Consejo que el conversatorio surgió en parte debido a un deseo de hacer una exploración significativa que fuera algo más que una “encuentro breve, superficial y de suyo frustrante”, con el tema.“Todos necesitamos hacer esta labor [de importantes conversatorios], cada uno de nosotros, por nuestra salvación y la salvación de nuestra amada comunidad”, dijo Lee.Actuando de motu proprio, el A&N también propuso resoluciones, que el Consejo aprobó, respecto a:Condenar las violaciones y otras formas de violencia sexual en la guerra como un delito de lesa humanidad.Apoyar la legislación y los empeños no legislativos que exigen ponerle fin a la discriminación de la mujer respecto al libre acceso a la atención sanitaria. Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Debatió si podría responder al informe anticipado del Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal (TREC) y cómo podría hacerlo. El debate se produjo en torno a una resolución propuesta para formar un grupo de trabajo que prepare una respuesta del Consejo al informe del TREC, que debe dársele a conocer a la Iglesia en diciembre. Ese informe incluirá las recomendaciones que el TREC quiere hacer a la próxima reunión de la Convención General en el verano de 2015.El hermano Robert Sevensky, superior de la Orden de la Santa Cruz y capellán del Consejo Ejecutivo, habla antes de la eucaristía del 26 de octubre, mientras el Rdo.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Steve Hutchinson, presidente Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Gobierno y Administración para la Misión (GAM) del Consejo, que había propuesto la resolución, dijo que estuvo motivada por la preocupación de parte de algo de lo que el TREC ha dicho hasta ahora. “Sé que esto suena crítico, pero…no refleja una comprensión realmente plena de lo que el Consejo Ejecutivo hace y de la manera en que funciona, del alcance y el aliento y la profundidad de nuestra responsabilidad”.El Rdo. Brian Baker, miembro del GAM, dijo que parte del objetivo de la resolución propuesta era el sentir que el Consejo debía “tener una voz en el diálogo” acerca de la labor del TREC, El Rdo. Nathaniel Pierce, otro miembro del Consejo, dijo que él se había sentido motivado a sugerir la resolución debido a una “propuesta muy específica que está ahora sobre la mesa” de parte del TREC de reducir el tamaño del Consejo y la forma de elegir a los representantes provinciales.Al final, el Consejo remitió la resolución a su comité ejecutivo al objeto de considerar un proceso a utilizar en la reunión de enero de 2015, y posiblemente más allá [de esa fecha] para que el Consejo contemple cualquier respuesta que pudiera querer hacer al informe del TREC.La reunión del 24 al 27 de octubre tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo [Maritime Institute Conference Center].Los resúmenes de las resoluciones que el Consejo aprobó en esta reunión se encuentran aquí.La cobertura previa que ENS hizo de esta reunión se encuentra aquí.Algunos miembros del Consejo enviaron mensajes por Twitter desde la reunión valiéndose del código #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a).

La resolución aplaude la labor de la Iglesia Episcopal en Liberia, a la comunidad religiosa en ese país, a las organizaciones de base y a los individuos, incluido el clero liberiano, y todas las organizaciones e individuos que han “fomentado esperanzas, conciencia y materiales y fondos”. La resolución reta a las comunidades religiosas del mundo a alentar una respuesta más enérgica y generosa frente a los desafíos [que impone] la epidemia del ébola”.Finalmente, la resolución, que se originó en el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Misión Mundial del Consejo, “encomienda las almas de los que han muerto a la amorosa protección de Dios y ora por los que están en duelo” y dice que los miembros del Consejo “viven con la esperanza del día en que celebraremos la buena nueva de que este virus ha sido contenido y que podamos aclamar a nuestros hermanas y hermanos según rehacen sus vidas en su país”.En otra decisiónTambién durante la última sesión plenaria, el Consejo:Otorgó $150.000 en incrementos anuales de $50.000 a partir de este año al Ministerio Chino de Li-Tim Oi en la Diócesis de Los Ángeles como una manera de posibilitar la extensión del ministerio a personas de ascendencia china. El dinero provendrá de fondos fiduciarios dados por el ministerio a los chinos luego de que los comunistas tomaran el poder.Dedicó casi dos horas al comienzo de la jornada a una sesión ejecutiva para debatir el último informe de su subcomité sobre la reubicación del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en Manhattan. No se tomó ninguna decisión sobre el informe.Instruyó a los funcionarios que presiden (la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Rda. Gay Clark Jennings) a nombrar un equipo de trabajo que estudie el problema de las diócesis que no pueden costear su plena participación en la Convención General a fin de identificar los problemas en torno a esta dificultad así como las fuentes de financiación a que haya que recurrir. El equipo ha de informar al Consejo Ejecutivo en enero de 2015. La resolución comenzó con la preocupación de Misión Mundial respecto a la capacidad de las diócesis de la IX Provincia de participar en la Convención, según Martha Gardner, presidente del comité.Aprobó y revisó el presupuesto de 2015 para la Iglesia Episcopal. La Convención General aprueba el presupuesto trienal, y el Consejo con frecuencia revisa los tres presupuestos anuales, a partir de cambios ocurridos en ingresos y egresos.

This is only part about his race – it is also about someone who will bring a word of hope to places and people who long have been on the margins – he will give voice to the oppressed as one who knows it firsthand. I am rejoicing.”Retired Central Pennsylvania Bishop Nathan Baxter“I’m a Trinitarian at heart. And to see this week what the Supreme Court has done about universal health care, equality in marriage and now the church being bold to embrace not only a black man as our presiding bishop but a vision for evangelism that is so engrained in his character that we are going to be ready to step forward. I praise God for this week and what God has been doing.”Three-time Liberian deputy Sheba Brown“I’m excited because he’s a good man of God. We are happy that our church is united. We have peace. It doesn’t matter who is bishop. We are all God’s people.”Union of Black Episcopalians President Annette Buchanan“We are overwhelmed, excited – and I had one colleague say that we never thought in our lifetime that we’d live to see a black president of the United States and a black presiding bishop. Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry is a longtime UBE member. He believes in the church being inclusive for all, especially African-Americans and Africans of the diaspora, and we are confident that his ministry will expand to all in the church based on the experience that we’ve had with him to date. He’s in our prayers.”As has happened with President Barack Obama, the first U.S. president of African descent, “the expectation levels are very high.”“He will be expected to right all the wrongs of the church … move more quickly than others can in being prepared for the church of the future. We hope people understand the church moves according to God’s plan. It’s not just what Michael and we want. It’s in His time.” Jane Cosby, Executive Council member from Philadelphia, longtime anti-racism advocate“I wanted him to get it. I prayed for him to get it. I prayed that it would be God’s will that he would get it. The fact that he got it on the first ballot and the fact that I’ve lived long enough to see a black president of the United States and now a black presiding bishop in The Episcopal Church, I’ve got nothing else to wish for. If I die to tonight it will be OK.“Whatever heart and humanity this church has, black folk have helped it happen. And the description that I hear of the manner in which his diocese operates makes me know that if he can be allowed to function and help these things to happen, we can begin to be a church not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. My sense is the reason it’s so difficult to get young people – other people – to come to us is that they see the difference between what we say and what we do. And in his diocese, they do.“I am just hoping that that can happen in the same manner so that it will benefit The Episcopal Church and the United States of America.”The Rev. Lisa Fischbeck, vicar, Episcopal Church of the Advocate, Chapel Hill, North Carolina“It is a bittersweet day for those of us in North Carolina. We are excited that the whole church will now experience the passion, commitment and leadership of Bishop Curry as we have known it for the past 15 years. But we certainly feel a sadness, too. Personally, I will really miss him as my bishop, but I am really excited that he will be our presiding bishop, especially at this time in the history of our church and the world.”Retired Southeast Florida Bishop Leo Frade“This is something wonderful. This is my fourth election for a presiding bishop and I’m elated. Bishop Curry is a friend. He started as bishop when I was transferred to the United States as a bishop. We’ve been close these past 15 years. What he says about Jesus is true. He is a true believer in our Lord Jesus Christ. It excites me; the church needs that kind of evangelism today, telling the world that Jesus Christ is alive and well.”Massachusetts Bishop Alan M. Gates“I think it’s a great day for the church. In a year when we’ve been so discouraged by signs of continuing brokenness in our church and in our society, it’s a sign of hope and unity. Thanks be to God.”Characterizing atmosphere at St. Mark’s Cathedral during the election, he said, “It was extraordinarily spiritual. I’m not sure people realize – I certainly didn’t before being a part of it – the extent to which the bishops really do understand balloting in the context of prayer. We gathered, we had protracted times of silence, of prayer, a lot of singing. We pretty much sang every Holy Spirit hymn in the hymnal. After the election, we sang Lift Every Voice and Sing and we sang it with gusto.”Retired Mississippi Bishop Duncan Gray III hugs an emotional Anita George, Mississippi deputy and Executive Council member, in the House of Deputies after the election of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry as the next presiding bishop. Photo: Sharon Sheridan/Episcopal News ServiceMississippi Deputy Anita George, member of Executive Council, long involved in antiracism work“At this moment, all I can do is grin and blabber. I am filled with joy, renewed hope and pride in my church and full of expectations for the dynamics that will happen with Michael Curry and good Episcopalians. It’s going to be unbelievable.”Retired Mississippi Bishop Duncan Gray III, whose father also was Mississippi’s bishop, came over and hugged Anita George, and they began reminiscing about how far the civil rights movement had come, leading to this moment.George: “His daddy was a pioneer … work that led up to this day.”Gray: “It was when the crosses were being burned and people were being lynched. Clergy were losing their jobs.”George: “His dad tried to corral the crowd” when James Meredith tried to enter the University of Mississippi. “For us, it’s our connected history.”Gray: “It’s part of a narrative. When we sing Lift Every Voice and Sing, the faces just pass by: Medgar Evers and James Meredith.”George: “I’m very excited about looking forward with Michael. Also we have to look back and we have to remember those who sacrificed, seriously sacrificed, to get us to this point. I give thanks for each generation.”Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Mary Glasspool“What can I say? I’m just overjoyed on behalf of the whole church. Right person, right place at the right time. Michael is a person of profound faith, and the joy of Jesus Christ … he’s been gifted with an infectious joy and spirit and that gift will serve him well.”Utah Bishop Scott Hayashi“This is a very, very, very, very, very good day for us in The Episcopal Church. We have a presiding bishop-elect who can excite the church, inspire all the people and be a witness to this whole world. I believe we are so very blessed to have Michael Curry as our presiding bishop-elect. I found myself tearful at the House of Bishops, not my usual way of being.”Retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara C. Harris (the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion)“This is a historic day for The Episcopal Church, and I think we can move forward with our mission and ministry under this new dynamic leadership. I never thought I’d live to see the day that Katharine Jefferts Schori was elected presiding bishop, and I never thought I’d live to see the election that this day brought, and on the first ballot at that.”Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr.“The definitive nature of this election is a reflection both of Bishop Curry’s readiness to serve as our presiding bishop, and the readiness of the church and the world in this moment for his companionship and leadership.”Western Michigan Bishop Whayne Hougland “My heart is so full. This is such an amazing day, to cap off a historic week like this with the election of Michael. He is the man of this time for this church. There’s going to be good stuff coming. We’re going to change the world.”Michael Moore, deputy from East Tennessee“As cliché as it sounds it’s just monumental with two enormous things happening this week. First, the Supreme Court decision on marriage and now, electing the first African-American presiding bishop in the history of the church. But his election has nothing to do with his race. He got elected because he is an evangelist, because of his sincerity, his spirituality and bringing people together.“I’m a cradle Episcopalian, fourth generation Episcopalian, and I think he will do a lot to bring people back together again. Through him we can send a message to the world and to my daughter, who’s become cynical about the church. He can bring us all together, not just black people who’ve left, but he can also give white people hope.“His election will send a message that we’re alive and well and we believe in Jesus Christ and we love everybody. Bishop Curry is the person to do that, that’s what we need. There’s so much divide in the world, we need someone like him to bring us together.”Bill Nance, Asheville, North Carolina, volunteering at convention“I’ve met Bishop Curry a few times, I’ve heard him preach and it’s the same way, every time. He’s full of energy and inspiration. He’s going to be good for the church. He will bring some new excitement to it, some new insights. I’m hoping he will bring some surprises. Just like today, they said he was coming in the House of Deputies by one door and he came in a different door. That’s the kind of surprise I hope he brings.”Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel “It’s a great day for the church. Bishop Curry is a true man of God. He will lead us greatly. I was so happy to be part of this moment, it was a wonderful moment, and I think we’ve got many, many great moments to come in The Episcopal Church with his leadership, and he’s a great collaborator so he’ll pull us all together in a very great way. Presiding Bishop Katharine has been fantastic. Things happen at the right time, at the right place, and that’s what happened today. The Holy Spirit was doing great work.”Byron Rushing, vice president of the House of Deputies:“This is quite a remarkable election. I’m – first – just so moved to have The Episcopal Church choose the best candidate regardless of race, and I think they did that. The other thing you see right now, and I just hope we can preserve it, is an incredible unity in both houses, incredible unity in the House of Bishops in this election, and you knew the House of Deputies wanted this after all the nominees came before us and spoke to us in that joint session. You could feel it in this house, and you saw it in our confirmation vote.“I think the church needs to take a deep breath and figure out how remarkable this is, what God and the Holy Spirit have given us. This is a huge gift, and we have to say, what will we do with this incredible gift?  It’s the opportunity both of Michael and the opportunity of the unity he has been able to demonstrate.”The Rev. Stephanie Spellers, chaplain to the House of Bishops“I can’t stop crying. This is not even about Michael Curry. … This is a victory for Jesus. … I could just feel the Spirit just pouring out, and it’s not going to be ever the same again.”— Episcopal News Service reporters Tracy Sukraw, Pat McCaughan, Mary Frances Schjonberg and Sharon Sheridan contributed to this story.

Flint, PhD says: June 28, 2015 at 3:22 pm This election of Curry like that of his predecessor has led the church far away from its beliefs, goals and traditions. It is sad to see the commands of God thrown out as they do not and did not exist. It is time for those of us who believe that God’s word is the final interpretation of what marriage is, is the right interpretation. Same sex relations are not a part of any Biblical command.There is no place for women prancing around playing priests, bishops and what ever else they think is cute. There is a place in the church for women and that is first to serve God, their husbands and family’s, their church in whatever place they are called. There is NO place in the Bible that states women as clergy are acceptable in the eyes of God. Same with Marriage.That is a union between a man and a woman. Not two women, not two men.I predict within five years there will be nothing but remnants of this church l still around.There will be the homo groups running what is left and the women will still be discussing what color purple should women bishops wear.Too bad we have to see this former great church fade into oblivion due to heretical beliefs and throwing out not only tradition but God’s commandments.Many of us will leave this organization…no longer a church and beg the Church of Rome to take us in. They value the Word of God. Episcopalians are now nothing more than an historical foot note in church history.

Carl Bodendofer says: C Cooper says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group By ENS staffPosted Jun 27, 2015 General Convention 2015, Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Presiding Bishop Michael Curry June 29, 2015 at 2:11 pm From all the signs, I think, Bp. Curry is the right PB for the Episcopal Church at this time…and this, for many of the reasons indicated in the comments. It was only after his election when people noted that he is our first African-American PB that I focused on that. Important and symbolically powerful as it, I rejoice in Bp. Curry’s election chiefly because I think he can bring the church together in a new center committed to the basic mission of evangelism. He has the spirit, the generosity, the intelligence to help us get back to work and the ability to help us see that evangelism is about a whole lot more than church growth or “happy-clappy” liturgies. Over the last forty some years, I’ve seen TEC torn apart between left and right into so-called progressive and traditionalist wings. We’ve gained much and lost much and, like the rest of the country, we are polarized between those camps. And in the process, we’ve let a lot of our mission go by the board. My hope is that Bishop Curry will help guide us back to a shared compassion and faith in God that will then send us out to do the work we have been called to do. It’s a very tall order and I share the concerns of some that the expectations are very high. He can’t do this all by himself. Our divisions sadden me deeply and my prayer is that we can listen to Bp. Curry but, more important, we can listen to each other. We haven’t been doing a very good job of that and if we are to be faithful to our calling, we have to start doing it. I think Bp. Curry can help us do it. I devoutly hope so! June 28, 2015 at 8:58 pm people who celebrate the election of michael to presiding bishop because he is black miss the bigger point. we should celebrate his election because he is a thoughtful articulate leader wh possesses excellent executive skills and wh works hard to find common ground and to develope practical solutions to real problems. that, folks is what we should celebrate and thank God for. this has been michael’s record for the 44years that i have known him.kurt m. langermount pleasant, south carolina Featured Events Erna Lund says: June 30, 2015 at 5:18 pm While all the candidates were excellent, I was thrilled when I saw Michael Curry’s name among them. He was in my diocese for about a dozen years, and I was well acquainted with him during that time through Diocesan Convention and various committee and commission work within the Diocese of Maryland. When I returned home after medical school, it was both with sorrow and joy that I found he had left the diocese as a bishop. He has certainly been missed here in Maryland during the intervening years. He is a talented man and outstanding priest, a fine theologian and scholar, and a loving and kind man, not to mention a fantastic preacher! At one of our conventions I remember him well joining in on the spirituals being sung during one of the worship services that year — he can also sing! Although I was not in his parish, I got to know him and have nothing but admiration and respect for the man. He is just the right choice to lead us through the tumult of the next few years, when our beloved church will be, and in fact is already, challenged with many new ideas and challenges. We already know that some are very unhappy with these changes, and indeed, they are sometimes difficult to embrace for many Episcopalians. Being the cautious and deliberative body that we are, Michael is of the same cloth, and will, I am certain help lead us in the right paths and follow where our Lord asks us to go. Michael Curry will certainly strive to find a common way forward as Jesus would have us do, and do it in his loving and caring way. Thank you delegates for making the choice as you did! Congratulations to you Bishop Michael Curry, and may God bless and guide you.

Tags Youth Minister Lorton, VA June 29, 2015 at 9:08 am The new Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the US said in a Pentecost sermon that Christian-Episcopalians are on the march to take Christianity back from the radical right wingers and bigots that have kidnapped it. They are not true followers of Jesus, but have turned Christianity into a hateful, judgmental, bigoted religion which resembles in no way the true Gospel of Jesus. God is Love and we are called to witness to this love. I am so thankful that I am an Episcopalian. He is the first African American to be elected Presiding Bishop and he got it right. Thanks be to God! I am thankful that such a man fo faith will be leading us in the witness of God’s great Love.

Dietsche and Bruce Macleod, president, Board of Trustees, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, have announced the appointment of the Rt. Rev. Clifton “Dan” Daniel III as interim dean of the cathedral, effective March 15.Daniel, who is currently the chairman of the Board of Trustees of General Theological Seminary in New York, most recently served as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Pennsylvania.In describing his life’s work that now has brought him to the cathedral, Daniel said, “I have served for 45 years as deacon, priest and bishop. In those years, I have served in settings ranging from rural to metropolitan. One thing I have learned is that people (including me) and communities are hungry to hear the liberating story of Jesus; hungry to receive the healing and reconciling medicine of the Gospel in the midst of busyness, fragmentation, division and dissension. Even the busiest of us can hear the Lord in quietness … if we seek to learn to be quiet.”Dietsche, in making the announcement, expressed his gratitude in welcoming  Daniel, with all the experience and passion he brings with him, to the cathedral and the New York diocesan community. Daniel, who will be moving to the close with his wife, Anne, looks forward to spending the next chapter of his life at the cathedral.Daniel said, “I look forward to working with Dean Kowalski during the transition over the next several months. I know I will value his guidance as we continue the important work of this extraordinary community.”As well as appreciating the many opportunities for service and celebration to be found here, Daniel and his wife are pleased to be closer to their three daughters and four grandchildren, who all live in New York.Dietsche and Macleod, with the Cathedral Board of Trustees, will establish a search committee in the next few months to identify a permanent new dean. The search is expected to conclude by the end of 2018.
