Fanny Sohet Belanger (de pie a la derecha de Whalon). Foto de Harvey Bale.[Episcopal News Service] A la Rda. Fanny Sohet Belanger le encanta ayudar a las personas a madurar en su relación con Dios. Al mismo tiempo, dice ella, es importante no quedarse “atrapado” en la iglesia, sino participar en la misión y llegar a las personas en el sitio en que se encuentran. Estos son los principios que han orientado la trayectoria espiritual de Belanger, una senda que condujo a su ordenación el 1 de febrero como la primera francesa que llega al sacerdocio en la Iglesia Episcopal.“Mi ministerio no consiste en llevarle religión a la gente, sino en capacitarles para crear su propia teología y espiritualidad al ayudarles a conocer su tradición y a comprometerse con las Escrituras”, le dijo ella a ENS en una entrevista reciente. “La oración es muy importante para mí y la considero el corazón de la Iglesia”.Belanger, de 38 años, fue ordenada por el obispo Pierre Whalon en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia, en Alexandria, adonde ella se mudó con su marido, Xavier, en agosto de 2011 para terminar su maestría en teología. La ordenaron al diaconado en ese mismo seminario en marzo de 2013.Whalon, obispo encargado de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, describió a Belanger como “una candidata de extraordinarias cualidades [con una] presencia pastoral muy cálida y seductora. Ella es una mujer para todos”.Belanger nació en Grenoble, Francia, y se crió como catolicorromana. Descubrió la Iglesia Anglicana a principios de la treintena y comenzó a asistir a la iglesia de San Marcos [St. Marc’s], que pertenece a la Diócesis de la Iglesia de Inglaterra en Europa. En 2011, ayudó a comenzar una eucaristía anglicana para francoparlantes en San Marcos.Belanger ha estudiado filosofía y teología, y “siempre tuve un gran deseo de llegar a ser sacerdote”, dijo. “Admiraba mucho a nuestro párroco cuando era niña, y quedé devastada el día que mi padre me dijo que nunca podría ser sacerdote por ser niña. Sentí que era tan injusto —y no había nada que yo pudiera hacer al respecto. Pero muchos años más tarde, Dios encontró otra vía… Descubrí la Comunión Anglicana y pronto hice mi hogar allí. Por primera vez pude hablar acerca de mi llamado sin ser desestimada”.La Rda. Fanny Sohet Belanger con el obispo Pierre Whalon. Foto de Harvey Bale.Durante el sermón de ordenación, Whalon dijo que Belanger es “una mujer de grandes dones, entre los cuales está su capacidad de llevar el Evangelio a toda clase de personas. Eres también una pescadora de personas. Pero ante que cualquier otra cosa, siempre debes estar segura que sigues donde Cristo conduce. Es fácil caer en la trampa del ministerio, donde el sacerdocio es una carrera, y tus dones son los que utilizas para avanzar”.Según Whalon, el obispo David Hamid, sufragáneo en Europa, creía que Belanger era más apta para la ordenación en la Iglesia Episcopal que en la Iglesia de Inglaterra. Belanger le dijo a ENS que siempre se había sentido atraída por Estados Unidos.Las congregaciones inglesas se establecieron en el continente antes de la Reforma dando lugar a la Diócesis de Gibraltar en 1842 y a la Diócesis en Europa en 1980. Entre tanto, luego de la Revolución de las Trece Colonias, los episcopales estadounidenses comenzaron a celebrar el culto en la embajada americana en París. Según se fueron desarrollando los intereses de EE.UU. en el siglo XIX, los episcopales comenzaron congregaciones en varias ciudades. En la actualidad, la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa sirve a una demografía cristiana culturalmente diversa repartida en unas 20 parroquias y misiones a través de Austria, Bélgica, Francia, Alemania, Italia, Polonia y Suiza. Otras dos jurisdicciones anglicanas funcionan en Europa: la Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal y la  Iglesia Lusitana.Belanger sirve actualmente como interna en la iglesia de la Epifanía  [Church of the Epiphany], en Washington D.C., donde trabaja con las personas sin hogar, predica, dirige estudios bíblicos “sin embargo, la mayor parte del tiempo, sencillamente escucho a las personas y trato de estar presente”, le dijo ella a ENS.Antes de eso sirvió durante 18 meses como seminarista en la iglesia de San Juan [St. John’s], en la plaza Lafayette, también en el D.C.Al preguntarle lo que ha definido su trayectoria, Belanger dijo “júbilo y asombro … Nunca habría pensado que encontraría una Iglesia en que realmente me sentiría como en casa, nunca habría creído que atenderían mi convicción de un llamado… Creo que he aprendido que Dios puede hacer cosas extraordinarias con personas ordinarias, o al menos con personas ordinarias como yo. He aprendido a confiar. He aprendido a creer que Dios me ama y me guía”.Belanger dijo que la llenaba de orgullo y felicidad ser la primera francesa en llegar a convertirse en sacerdote episcopal. En tanto Belanger y su marido —administrador de un sistema de intercomunicación del Seminario Teológico de Virginia— se proponen quedarse un tiempo más en Estados Unidos, ella entiende que su ministerio ordenado probablemente la llame de regreso a Francia. En el ínterin, espera encontrar una nueva oportunidad para ministrar en el área metropolitana de Washington, D.C.“Costó muchísimo trabajo, audacia y fe llegar hasta aquí —y también muchísimo amor y apoyo de mi marido y mis amigos a lo largo del camino”, afirmó. “Pero, al mismo tiempo, me siento triste. Triste de ver que hay tantos ministerios aquí en EE.UU. y tan pocos en Francia. Triste porque los cristianos en mi país no pueden encontrar a un sacerdote que bautice a sus hijos y entierre a sus muertos. En Francia, los laicos tienen mucho que hacer con muy poco tiempo y a veces sin suficiente educación.“Me entristece que tantas personas valiosas ‘no puedan’ ser ordenadas porque la Iglesia Católica Romana no lo permita”, añadió. “Creo que la gente en EE.UU. no siempre se da cuenta de su oportunidad de tener una verdadera libertad de expresión. No obstante, me siento esperanzada de que la Iglesia Episcopal podrá difundir su misión en Europa”.Whalon reconoció que, en Francia, Belanger probablemente enfrentaría algunos retos como mujer sacerdote que sirve en una sociedad predominantemente secular y donde la principal denominación cristiana es la Católica Romana. Pero, añadió Whalon, ella tiene un don especial y “la capacidad de hablarle a la gente que tiene un caparazón endurecido sin demolérselo”Belanger afirmó: “No se necesitan tantos dones para llegar a ser sacerdote, se necesita corazón. La gente se muere porque los amen y los comprendan”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Okoh, the Primate of All Nigeria, made his comments in a New Year’s Message as it emerged that 17 churchgoers were shot dead as they left a midnight Eucharist service at a church in Omoku, about 56 miles north-west of Port Harcourt, in southern Nigeria’s oil-rich River State. The attack has been blamed on one of a number of armed gangs which are active in the area, mainly target multi-national oil companies in the region. The local Anglican Archbishop of the Niger Delta, Ignatius Kattey, and his wife Beatrice, were kidnapped by one such gang in September 2013. They were released unharmed a short time later.Read the entire article here.

For example, Catharanthus Roseus, or the Madagascar Periwinkle, has been instrumental in increasing the childhood leukaemia survival rate from 20 to 80 per cent. The back of the label explains about the link between plants, medicine and rainforests. For each bottle sold, Comte Cathare donates 50 pence to the Rainforest Foundation.The Foundation expects that the partnership will raise a further £20,000 during 2004. Joining the range will be two new labels, incorporating images of world-renowned photographer Brenda Eckles and animal rights activist Karl Ammann, depicting an orangutan and a gorilla. The Primate range of wines will be launched in March 2004 through a special window display in all of Oddbins 232 stores.  71 total views,  3 views today Howard Lake | 25 February 2004 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Teachers hold national strike in Britain

first_imgTeachers across Britain went on strike March 26 over pay, pensions and teaching conditions. The National Union of Teachers got the support of many, but not all, parents.The teachers in London marched on the prime minister’s residence on Downing Street.Tom Davies, past president of the NUT chapter in Ealing, a western suburb of London, told News Line, a small socialist-oriented daily: “It’s going to be really effective. All I hear from different NUT Secretaries across the London Region is that they will be out solid.“The majority of schools in London should be closed or running a skeletal service and nationally I’m sure it will be similar.“We have a secretary of state for education who is not only ignorant but arrogant and won’t talk to the trade unions, so strike action is our only alternative.“The issues are workload, pay and pensions. Teachers’ conditions have been completely undermined over the past four years and of course we are now faced with performance-related pay, to which we are completely opposed.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Demand Biden issue an executive order to implement the PRO Act

first_imgThe fight of Amazon workers for union rights has just begun!Union busting is disgusting. It can be stopped!Sign this message to Joe Biden and raise this demand at protests and rallies. Act now to defend Workers’ Right to Organize!The PRO Act — Protecting the Right to Organize Act — shields workers seeking to form a union from retribution or firing, strengthening the government’s power to punish employers who violate workers’ rights. It outlaws mandatory meetings that employers often use to try to quash an organizing drive. Workers need the protection of the PRO Act now. The PRO Act will make it harder for companies like Amazon, Uber, Lyft and other huge corporations to classify millions of gig workers as independent contractors. This expands the pool of workers eligible to unionize.The PRO Act overturns provisions of the odious 1947 Taft-Hartley Act, which for almost 75 years has helped bosses bust unions and break strikes. The PRO Act would allow secondary strikes and boycotts. The PRO Act weakens misnamed state “right-to-work” laws by allowing unions to charge a representation fee to workers who opt out of union membership.But the PRO Act has to run into a brick wall of opposition in the Senate, where 60 votes are needed to pass filibuster. Shelving the essential labor protection because it won’t pass the Senate is NOT the only way forward.President Biden can issue an executive order to activate the basic labor protections in the PRO Act. Moreover, Biden can go even further in securing union rights. How? One, by making union recognition by “card check” mandatory, eliminating the need for an National Labor Relations Board election — a process that gives bosses undue influence in the outcome of the vote. Two, by repealing Taft-Hartley altogether. Biden has already issued 38 executive orders in the last 10 weeks.Biden has issued executive orders on the environment, education, access to voting, migration policy, Medicaid coverage, gun control, public health and combatting COVID-19. Clearly the president has the established legal precedent and constitutional authority to protect basic labor rights.ONLY the President has the authority under the U.S. Constitution to issue an executive order. Trump issued more than 220 executive orders to reverse many worker and civil rights gains. Every president has used their executive power to impose basic changes, forward or backward, through executive orders. Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued 3,721 executive orders. The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order that ended chattel slavery in the U.S.Biden pledged to be “the strongest labor president you have ever had” during his candidacy, and the PRO Act was a cornerstone of his election platform. We call on President Biden to use his authority to protect workers’ right to organize.Make the PRO Act effective immediately! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fertility Doctor Who Used Own Sperm Surrenders License

first_imgIL for www.theindianalawyer.comA retired Indianapolis fertility doctor who lied about using his own sperm to impregnate possibly dozens of women surrendered his medical license Thursday to a state board that also barred him from ever seeking its reinstatement.After an attorney for Dr. Donald Cline surrendered his expired license to the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, the 7-member panel voted to prohibit the 79-year-old Cline from ever applying for a license in Indiana again.Indiana’s supervising deputy attorney general, Laura Iosue, asked the board before the vote to consider the impact of Cline’s actions.“It’s particularly egregious. The important thing is that Dr. Cline doesn’t practice anymore,” she said.Cline, who retired from practice in 2009, was given a one-year suspended sentence in December after pleading guilty to two counts of obstruction of justice. He’d used his own sperm to impregnate possibly dozens of women after telling them the donors were anonymous.No other charges were filed against Cline because Indiana law doesn’t specifically prohibit fertility doctors from using their own sperm.Cline was charged after lying to investigators, and he had faced up to three years in prison on each count. The charges stemmed from two confirmed cases of paternity, but children of women treated by Cline have said DNA tests show he’s likely the biological father of as many as 20 of them.Cline apologized “for the pain my actions have caused” during his December sentencing, although he didn’t specify how often he used his own sperm in procedures. But court documents state that he told one of his biological daughters, Jacoba Ballard, that he had done so about 50 times in the 1970s and 1980s. Ballard said at Thursday’s hearing that Cline’s actions have “affected me in every possible way.”“He’s portrayed as this man that’s remorseful,” she said.A total of 10 people who believe Cline is their biological father attended Thursday’s hearing with their mothers.Many of Cline’s former patients and their children are now focusing on persuading Indiana lawmakers to pass a measure that would deem a fertility doctor’s use of his own sperm as a crime.Matt White, who learned as an adult that the “anonymous” sperm donor who impregnated his mother was actually Cline, called the surrender of Cline’s already expired license “a slap on the wrist.” But he said he appreciated the board barring Cline from ever seeking to seek reinstatement of his license.“That was a small victory,” he said.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
