Eliot. In the “Dry Salvages,” one of the Four Quartets, he wrote “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”Welcome to the end of the great Episcopal Church structure debate of 2011-2012. We have arrived here, in part, through a politically fraught process that no one would recommend or seek to replicate. As so often happens, however, the Holy Spirit showed up and worked through our legislative process at General Convention. The result was a rare unanimous vote in both the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops for Resolution C095. The first clause of that resolution, which created this task force, says:Resolved, That this General Convention believes the Holy Spirit is urging The Episcopal Church to reimagine itself, so that, grounded in our rich heritage and yet open to our creative future, we may more faithfully:• Proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom• Teach, baptize and nurture new believers• Respond to human need by loving service• Seek to transform unjust structures of society• Strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.Put simply, we are longing to be changed from glory into glory. So this is your starting point. What it lacks in specificity it makes up for in faithfulness.Because we got here the way we did, we don’t yet have some things that you’ll need to accomplish the work you are charged to do between now and November 2014, when your report is due. Don’t worry: You have some of the sharpest, most creative minds I know in this room, and you’ll be able to make up ground quickly and collaboratively. But here are some fundamentals you’ll want to consider as you figure out how to get the job done:We don’t have agreement on what we mean when we say we intend to reimagine “The Episcopal Church” and reform our “structures, governance and administration.” Are we speaking of the corporate structure of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society? Our diocesan and provincial structures? The General Convention? Executive Council? Theological education? Committees, commissions, agencies and boards? Congregations? It is up to you to define the scope of what you will seek to restructure.We don’t have a common vocabulary. Those of you who played Bonnie Ball in the House of Deputies last summer remember the points you scored for using buzzwords like “nimble,” “flexible” and “creative.” The game was a blast, but jargon clouds meaning, as any of you who have read General Ordination Exams know all too well. I urge you to spend time developing a clear, common vocabulary to use when you communicate with one another and with the whole church—which you are charged to do “frequently” by Resolution C095.Most of all, we have a lot of unquestioned assumptions and not much data—especially about the energetic, active, Spirit-led mission and ministries that are happening all over the grassroots of this church. As the president of the House of Deputies, which has nearly 900 members, I’m privileged to hear from a lot of laypeople and clergy, particularly young people, who are planting congregations, organizing communities, advocating for justice, and reinventing church. They have remarkably little need for, or interest in, traditional top-down governance structures more suited to the world of Mad Men than Modern Family. Any new structure worth having will need to harness their commitment to the Gospel, their passion for mission, and their energy and creativity.Resolution C095 gives you the mandate you need to gather the information and ask for the prayers you will need:Resolved, That, in order to be informed by the wisdom, expertise, and commitment of the whole body of the Church, the Task Force shall gather information and ideas from congregations, dioceses and provinces, and other interested individuals and organizations, including those not often heard from; engage other resources to provide information and guidance, and shall invite all these constituencies to be joined in prayer as they engage in this common work of discernment.I want to commend to you one more resolved clause of your enabling resolution. You won’t be surprised that it is near and dear to me:Resolved, That this Task Force shall be accountable directly to the General Convention, and independent of other governing structures, to maintain a high degree of autonomy.You are no one’s agents; no one’s surrogates, and the credibility of this endeavor depends on your conducting your work accordingly.There’s a lot at stake for many faithful people in the restructuring of The Episcopal Church, because the end that we are starting from is the end of the institutional church as we have known it. You’ve been called to guide the church as we begin anew, and you have been given the independence and autonomy you will need to keep the understandable and unavoidable fear, anxiety and grief at bay and give us all “a future with hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11, as quoted in Resolution C095).I will wait with great interest as you lead us in welcoming and engaging changing realities, emerging networks, flattening hierarchies, rapidly changing media, amazing new technologies, and new ideas about what community means. We are all praying for you.Let us pray:O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and know that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Boston cathedral’s ‘Ministry of the Steps’ takes church’s welcome to…

first_img Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ By Bridget K. WoodPosted Jun 24, 2019 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Bath, NC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Martinsville, VA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Diocese of Massachusetts] A chess match between a police officer and a person who is homeless isn’t what you would necessarily expect to see while walking down Tremont Street in downtown Boston, Massachusetts. On the portico of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, however, this has become the new normal during the summer months, thanks to the cathedral’s “Ministry of the Steps.”The Ministry of the Steps officially launched as a pilot program last summer, with just a tent canopy, some AstroTurf from Costco and an invitation to the community to join cathedral staff and volunteers in offering various outdoor activities to engage the community and those walking by.Dean Amy McCreath, right, plays bingo outside of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, as part of its “Ministry of the Steps.” Photo: Bridget K. Wood/Diocese of MassachusettsThe activities range from chess, checkers and bingo games to art projects, drum circles, musical performances and chanting. Last year’s Ministry of the Steps included voter registration drives, as well as a witness against gun violence by the B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign. The Ministry of the Steps has now begun its second summer of programming with activities happening outside the cathedral on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning at 9 a.m.Eva Ortez serves as a Life Together fellow for the MANNA ministry at the cathedral, a ministry of and with the homeless community in downtown Boston. Ortez experienced a powerful moment during a recent day of chess and checkers under the Ministry of the Steps canopy.“I took a step back and just wanted to take it all in, and in that moment, I noticed the amount of joy everyone there was experiencing,” Ortez said. “The group of people there was so diverse. There was a cop and an unhoused person playing, a young student and a recently housed person playing, and in the background there was a group of MANNA community members playing music, singing and dancing. Watching all of this and being part of something so beautiful almost brought tears to my eyes.”While the Ministry of the Steps is still new, it’s in keeping with the intent behind the decision to make St. Paul’s Church in downtown Boston the cathedral church of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts in 1912, according to the cathedral’s dean, the Very Rev. Amy E. McCreath.“Bishop Lawrence chose St. Paul’s Church as the location for the cathedral of the diocese very much intentionally, wanting it to be in a place that was in the downtown area, where people from lots of different backgrounds were coming through,” McCreath explained in an interview. “Being on Boston Common is just perfect for that.”“Jesus encountered people in the marketplace, on the road and over meals, and a lot of Jesus’ style was to do something familiar but in a different way,” McCreath said. “People know about chess, they know about voter registration drives, they know about labyrinths, but they’re not expecting all of that to be kind of on the sidewalk and presented by somebody in a [clerical] collar, so it shakes things up a bit.”McCreath said that one of her favorite parts of the Ministry of the Steps is seeing people who are walking by stop and notice what is going on outside the cathedral, even if just for a brief moment.“There’s this kind of attention that may not translate into that person ever coming into the church, but they’re aware of it and they have a positive encounter,” McCreath said. “Part of what we are doing through the Ministry of the Steps is reclaiming all of that space in front of the cathedral for good, in a neighborhood where the steps are not always used for good.”During a presentation about the Ministry of the Steps at the diocesan Ministry Network Showcase last fall, the Rev. Jennifer McCracken, who serves as head pastor to the cathedral’s MANNA community, described it as a new ministry through recreation. “Or better still, re-creation,“ McCracken said. “Re-creating a sacred space outside for people to come and be welcomed to engage in community.”“Following Jesus into the neighborhood of chaos is always risky because it asks us to confront our fears and our doubts and our risk of failure,” McCracken said. “It also asks us to let go of our fenced-in spaces that confine us to smaller areas, and to move out into the world.”As part of the Ministry of the Steps, clergy will often stand outside on the sidewalk with a sign asking, “Do you want a blessing?”McCreath said this allows people to receive a blessing without having to climb the steps of the cathedral and go inside the church.“Those front steps are very intimidating — what we call a ‘high threshold to entry’ — so by coming down the steps, that just eliminates that barrier,” McCreath said.Kevin Neil serves on the MANNA pastoral team and helped to facilitate chess and checkers games as part of the Ministry of the Steps. Neil explained in an interview that this ministry allows the cathedral to interact with different groups of people than those who might walk up the steps and through the doors.“The concept of extending the welcome and the culture of hospitality, which we work really hard in the cathedral to cultivate on Sunday mornings and throughout the week in the building, are harder to extend beyond the building,” Neil said. “I think this is really helpful in making that possible and making it seem possible to folks actually outside on the sidewalk or across the street.”Libby Gatti serves as the chaplain to the MANNA community and said in an interview that one thing that makes this ministry unique is that people of all backgrounds are coming together on equal ground.“If you’re an unhoused person and you are coming to play chess or checkers … it’s not a transactional thing, it’s not like someone giving you money or handing you a plate of food,” Gatti said. “You’re two players playing a game together, so this is a little bit of a chance for deeper connection and for coming together on equal ground.”Andrew Fortes works downtown in the finance industry. An avid chess player, he noticed the chess games happening outside of the cathedral last summer and began to join in on his lunch breaks. Through these weekly chess games, Fortes built relationships with members of the MANNA community, and when the Ministry of the Steps came to an end with the fall weather, Fortes was invited to attend the Monday lunch program that MANNA hosts at the cathedral — a place where anyone can come and get a hot lunch on Mondays. Fortes began attending the lunches and subsequently began volunteering to help serve.In an interview, Fortes said that he keeps coming back to the Monday lunches not only because he feels like he is contributing to society and it brings him a sense of goodwill, but also because he gains wisdom from those he meets and has conversations with.“Just meeting people from different backgrounds really opens your eyes, and creates a level of openness in your mind,” Fortes said. “At the end of the day, everybody’s experience of life is different, and anybody that you can talk to can offer you some wisdom. Going to the Monday lunches, I always find myself gaining some type of wisdom.”Karen Sargent has been hired by the cathedral for the summer as the Ministry of the Steps intern, in charge of coordinating all of the programming for the ministry this summer. She is a seminarian at Boston University School of Theology.Sargent said that the goal of the Ministry of the Steps is to be a bridge between the cathedral church and the outside world and to let people know that they are welcome.“It’s just extending a welcome, which sometimes looks religious and sometimes it doesn’t,” Sargent said. “We are multidimensional humans, and the way faith is expressed is multifaceted, and so, bringing people’s passions into the space is just as much about religion as blessings are.”Sargent said that one of her goals with this ministry is to get more people involved from across the diocese, emphasizing that it is people’s individual passions and gifts that make a difference.“Come for an hour, come for two hours, bring your talent, bring your passions, bring your joy, and let’s see what we can do,” Sargent said. “Something can only be gained by stepping into something a little uncomfortable or a little new.”McCreath, the cathedral dean, encourages congregations of all sizes and locations to try something new in order to engage the world around them.“Not every church is in a location like this where they can just open their front doors and start doing a drum circle,” McCreath said. “But I think there’s something to be learned from it about just trying something out as a pilot project, that it doesn’t need to cost a lot of money, there’s always something to learn and that people are more ready to be engaged than we often think they are.”— Bridget K.

Education and outreach in areas with a high rate of pedestrian injuries and fatalities coupled with engineering improvements like street lighting, pavement markings and signals are also implemented to make roads safer for everyone.Fast Facts – 2016 Pedestrian Crashes50 people walking were struck and killed in Orange County in 2016637 people were injured crossing the street in Orange County – that’s enough to fill a Boeing 747 planeFast Facts – Best Foot Forward Program2,401 citations and 4,168 warnings have been issued by OPD and OCSO through Operation Best Foot Forward17 to 63 percent: the percentage increase in drivers now yielding to people in crosswalks on roads posted 35 mph and lower (Best Foot Forward crosswalks measured)2 to 28 percent: the percentage increase in drivers now yielding to people using marked crosswalks on roads posted 40 mph and higher.Crosswalk Enforcement Schedule for Wednesday, June 14General Rees Ave., N. of Parkland Dr. 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. OPDPine Hills Rd. & El Trio Way 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. OCSOWoodbury Rd. & Mallory Cir. 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. OCSOLandstar Blvd. & Misley Dr. 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. OCSOEdgewater Dr. & Shady Lane Dr. 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. OPDS.

From January to May 2017, 32 people walking have been killed and 284 injured in Orange County. These numbers have contributed to the Metro Orlando area’s distinction as one of the most dangerous places for pedestrians in the nation.Total Traffic Fatalities UpThe National Safety Council reported in February that it estimates 40,200 people died in traffic fatalities in 2016, a 6 percent increase from the previous year. If that estimate is confirmed, it will be the first time since 2007 that more than 40,000 people have died in motor vehicle accidents. The National Safety Council attributes the rise to distracted driving and an improved economy with more people driving more miles.About Best Foot Forward & Pedestrian Safety in Metro OrlandoThe Best Foot Forward pedestrian safety initiative was launched in June 2012 to reduce pedestrian deaths and injuries in Metro Orlando by getting drivers to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and getting pedestrians to be more careful crossing the street. More than a campaign, this “Triple-E” behavioral change process seeks to create lasting social good through the consistent and persistent application of low-cost engineering, community education, and high-visibility enforcement.Initiated by Bike/Walk Central Florida under the leadership of former Orange County Mayor Linda Chapin, spearheaded by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, the Best Foot Forward coalition includes Orange County Government, Orange County Public Schools, Orlando Health, LYNX, Winter Park Health Foundation, MetroPlan Orlando, the City of Orlando, Winter Park, Maitland, Winter Garden, Apopka, and towns of Eatonville and Windermere as well as police chiefs throughout Orange County led by Orlando Police Chief John Mina and Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.The long term goal is to cut pedestrian injuries in half in ten years. The short term goals are to increase driver yield rates by 60 percent on roads posted 35 mph and lower, and a 10 percent increase on driver yield rates year over year on roads posted 40 mph and higher.

He enjoys writing about all sports and plans to go to law school after graduation. Linkedin Branson Nelsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/branson-nelson/ printTCU (6-1) tallied its fifth comeback victory of the season using four two-out RBIs in a series-clinching, 5-2 win over Arizona State on Sunday at Lupton Stadium.The No. 1 Horned Frogs got past the Sun Devils (4-3) using a late-inning rally, something Frog fans have become accustomed to seeing from their team in the last few years.“We’ve got a veteran club, so they’ve been through this before,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “Our guys do a good job of playing the full nine innings. There’s no difference between the eighth inning and the first inning in their mind. It takes experience to believe in that.”The Frogs continued to work gritty at-bats and force their opponents to throw a lot of pitches, something that has been effective during the first seven games. After walking seven times in the series finale against ASU, TCU has drawn 43 walks on the season, averaging over six per game.TCU threatened in the bottom of the first, drawing three walks off of Arizona State freshman LHP Spencer Van Scoyoc, but could not push anybody across the plate.The next scoring opportunity for either team didn’t come until the top of the fourth, when Horned Frog starter Jared Janczak (2-0) used a double play ball to work around two one-out singles.The game remained scoreless until the Sun Devils led off the top of the fifth with two singles leading to an RBI groundout by DH Tyler Williams and a run-scoring single from third baseman, Carter Aldrete.Behind 2-0, the Frogs got one run back in the home half of the fifth after the No. 8 hitter, Mason Hesse, walked and the No. 9 hitter, Zach Humphreys, singled to left field. With runners on the corners, leadoff hitter Austen Wade hit an RBI ground ball cutting the deficit to just one run.ASU held it’s lead until the bottom of the seventh, when the Horned Frog bats heated up. Freshman pitcher, Chaz Montoya, in to replace Van Scoyoc, walked Hesse to begin the inning. After Humphreys and Wade were retired, Elliott Barzilli smashed a ball down the third base line with two outs, just out of the reach of a diving Aldrete, scoring one and tying the game.Barzilli had three extra-base hits and three RBIs in a 5-13 effort at the plate against the Sun Devils over the weekend, helping him break out of a mini-slump to start the year. He is now the No. 2 hitter in the Horned Frog lineup, a new role that he says he is settling in to.“Definitely a different role, what I like about it is just more at-bats honestly,” Barzilli said. “I was struggling a little bit, but it’s a new role and I am getting used to it. I couldn’t be happier.”Catcher Evan Skoug followed Barzilli’s two-out RBI double with one of his own on a soft fly ball that found the grass in shallow left center field.With the Frogs leading 3-2, Luken Baker was intentionally walked before Cam Warner hit a rope on the first pitch into right center field scoring Barzilli and giving the Frogs a 4-2 advantage.Sean Wymer worked a scoreless inning in the eighth after coming in to replace Janczak. Janczak pitched a season best seven innings allowing two runs on five hits, two walks, one hit batter and four strikeouts. Janczak lowered his ERA to 2.77 through 13 innings over two starts.“It felt good, I was just pounding the bottom of the strike zone,” Janczak said. “I watched these guys for two days so I kind of watched their tendencies and what the were doing.”The Horned Frogs added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth with two outs on a run-scoring triple by Wade.Schlossnagle called on sophomore closer Durbin Feltman to get the final three outs. Feltman let two reach base, but stranded them both and picked up his second save of the season.The Horned Frogs will close out their home stand on Tuesday against in-state rival Rice.“They have a great team. It’s always close games when we play those guys,” said Schlossnagle. “It should be a great night for the state of Texas baseball.”Mitchell Traver will take the mound at Lupton Stadium.
