Gaza Christians upset over ‘forced conversions’

first_img New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Tampa, FL Gaza Christians upset over ‘forced conversions’ [Ecumenical News International, Jerusalem] The small Christian community of Gaza is in a state of uproar and has held an uncommon public protest against the Islamic Hamas government over what they say are forced conversions of two Christians in recent weeks.Led by Gaza’s Greek Orthodox Archbishop Alexious, the protesters gathered on July 21 in front of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. Perfidious in Gaza City. They said they felt growing pressure from Gaza Muslims to convert, although there is no official Hamas policy for the conversion of Christians.“We are afraid more young people will be forced to convert,” one Christian who asked not to be named told ENInews. “If they want to convert of their own free will, okay, but why keep them away from their families?”They said 24-year-old Ramez al-Amash was kidnapped from his home, and that a young mother, 32-year-old Hiba Abu Dawoud, along with her three daughters was also forced to convert to Islam. A video on a pro-Hamas website TV showing Abu Dawoud and her daughters wearing traditional Muslim dress and saying they willingly converted to Islam was made under duress, said family members.Her now-estranged husband told the Associated Press that Abu Dawoud had complained during her university studies about the pressure she felt from her Muslim colleagues to convert.But al-Amash and Abu Dawoud said they came to the decision on their own through careful deliberation through their exposure to Islam during university studies and willingly embraced the Muslim faith.The families said they were prevented from seeing their children while the converts themselves said they had gone into hiding out of fear of repercussions from their families. Al-Amash told Reuters he wanted to return home as long as his mother would accept his conversion, and was home one day later.However, Gaza Christians said they feel uneasy. “We aren’t safe anymore,” Gaza City resident Josef Elias, 44, told the Associated Press. “This is a conspiracy against our existence in the Holy Land.”AP quoted Hamas government minister Bassem Naim as saying the Christians were part of the Palestinian people and had “the full right to practice their faith.”Fewer than 3,000 Christians live among Gaza’s 1.7 million Muslims as Christians have left the Gaza Strip during a five-year-old Israeli blockade. They say they are trying to escape a crumbling economy and growing Islamic extremism which includes efforts to convert them since the Hamas government took power in 2007 and restricts civil freedoms from drinking alcohol to ways of dress.According to media reports, ten Christians are known to have converted in the past eight years. In recent years Christian institutions have been attacked by Muslim hardliners and one Christian bookstore owner was murdered.

La familia ahora vive en Chilpancingo, un barrio marginal cerca de Tijuana. Foto de Janet Kawamoto[Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles] Un grupo de unos 25 líderes interreligiosos de Los Ángeles viajaron a San Diego y cruzaron la frontera hasta Tijuana el 26 y el 27 de febrero para estar más al tanto de cómo las políticas migratorias de EE.UU. afectan a los pobres de México. Y quedaron impuestos, ciertamente, con una fuerte impresión que les dejó decididos a encontrar medios para alentar una reforma migratoria efectiva.El grupo, que incluía a Mary D. Glasspool, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles, representaba al Consejo de Líderes Religiosos de Los Ángeles (LACRL, sigla en inglés) y estaba encabezado por el rabino Mark Diamond, presidente del Consejo y director regional de AJA-LA una rama local de una organización mundial dedicada a la promoción social.Entre los viajeros también se contaban representantes clericales y laicos de la Arquidiócesis Católico Romana de Los Ángeles, la Conferencia de California-Pacífico de la Iglesia Metodista Unida; la Conferencia de California Sur-Nevada de la Iglesia Unida de Cristo y el Presbiterio del Pacífico de la Iglesia Presbiteriana.A partir de las presentaciones del primer día, Diamond le recordó al grupo del LACRL que el Antiguo Testamento constantemente le manda a los hebreos —y a los cristianos— a recibir al extranjero. Él citó [en apoyo de esto] Levítico 19:33-34: “Cuando algún extranjero se establezca en el país de ustedes, no lo traten mal. Al contrario, trátenlo como si fuera uno de ustedes. Ámenlo como a ustedes mismos, porque también ustedes fueron extranjeros en Egipto. Yo soy el Señor y Dios de Israel”.Aunque hay una amplia variedad de opiniones en el terreno político de EE.UU. respecto al complicado tema de inmigración, dijo Diamond, “en 2013 tenemos una tentativa seria de una reforma migratoria global”.Carmen M. Chávez —abogada de inmigración y directora ejecutiva del Centro Legal Casa Cornelia, un ministerio catolicorromano en San Diego que se ocupa de problemas de inmigración— se mostró de acuerdo.“Creo por primera vez que mis colegas, no sólo en Casa Cornelia, sino en ejercicio como abogados de inmigración, tanto en el sector privado como en el sector sin fines de lucro, por primera vez en mucho tiempo están hablando de una reforma migratoria como si pudiera llegar a producirse realmente en nuestro tiempo”, le dijo ella a los líderes religiosos.“No sabemos qué aspecto tendrá, pero sí tenemos que decir que va a llegar a todos nosotros”, afirmó, señalando que la aplicación de cualquier nueva ley va a tomar muchos años.El papel de las comunidades religiosas en encontrar soluciones humanas factibles será enorme, agregó.“Será la comunidad religiosa —como siempre ha sido— la que responderá al llamado de las personas cuando necesiten ayuda y que se les tienda una mano. Será la comunidad religiosa la que aporte, con suerte, no sólo civilidad, sino un cierto grado de apertura a la realidad de esta migración, que es un migración global”.Casa Cornelia trabaja con los que buscan asilo en Estados Unidos por ser víctimas de persecución en sus países de origen. También atiende a víctimas de violencia doméstica, así como a niños que intentan cruzar solos la frontera. La mayoría son varones entre los 14 y los 16 años, pero Casa Cornelia ha llegado a atender a niños hasta de 2 años de edad.La búsqueda de asilo“Carlos,” que huyó de la persecución en su natal Nicaragua, dijo al grupo de L.A. que estuvo detenido en una instalación dirigida por la Corporación de Correccionales de América (CCA), una agrupación con fines de lucro que administra varias prisiones en EE.UU.“Vine para salvar mi vida y lo que encontré fue una cárcel”, dijo a través de un intérprete.En Estados Unidos, explicó la abogada Elizabeth A. López, de Casa Cornelia, el derecho migratorio es un derecho administrativo, no penal, y los migrantes indocumentados —incluso niños— no tienen [por consiguiente] derecho a que un abogado los represente. Unos pocos pueden encontrar servicios legales a bajo costo o gratuitos que brindan organizaciones caritativas o religiosas. Otros intentan asumir su propia defensa.Carlos, que no disponía de recursos económicos y de ninguna asesoría legal, actuó como su propio abogado. La prisión tenía una biblioteca pequeña y desactualizada sin acceso a Internet, y fue allí que Carlos intento elaborar una defensa para que no lo deportaran. Le daban sólo cinco horas a la semana en la biblioteca —y a menudo se las reducían a tres.Aunque no hablaba inglés y no contaba con representación legal, Carlos fue capaz de defender su caso y, aunque no le concedieron el asilo formal, pudo quedarse legalmente en Estados Unidos. “Gracias a Dios”, dijo él “que el juez entendió que moriría si regresaba a mi país.“Con los pocos recursos de que disponía, pude probar que tenía credibilidad y que necesitaba quedarme en Estados Unidos”.“Carlos representa a la mayoría de los que buscan asilo y de los inmigrantes que no tienen recursos para contratar a un abogado”, dijo López, quien agregó que sólo el 3 por ciento de los que optan por la autorrepresentación logran obtener la residencia legal en EE.UU. “Él es elocuente, capaz de exponer su caso. La mayoría no tienen esas ventajas”.López también mencionó que las prisiones privadas constituyen una industria de enorme crecimiento, con una poderosísima presencia en Washington, D.C. Quieren que las leyes migratorias sean más estrictas y punitivas, agregó, para tener más presos a fin de ganar más dinero.Testigos en la frontera“Según nos acercamos al muro verán la patrulla fronteriza que nos protege del pueblo mexicano”, dijo el Rdo. Carlos Correa, de la Iglesia Unida de Cristo, a los visitantes del LACRL mientras cruzaban la frontera entre EE.UU. y México para dirigirse a Tijuana.“Gracias a Dios” añadió, con una risa irónica.Una gruesa malla de metal superpuesta al enrejado del muro en el llamado “Parque de la Amistad” impide todo contacto físico y la mayor parte del contacto visual entre ambos lados de la frontera mexicoamericana. A unos 15 metros por el lado de EE.UU. hay una segunda cerca que se abre sólo por breves períodos los fines de semana para permitir que personas de cada lado del muro conversen con sus familiares y amigos del otro lado. Foto de Janet Kawamoto.Correa Bernier es un ministro auxiliar para el ministerio fronterizo y latino, de la Conferencia de California-Nevada de la IUC, y director ejecutivo del Centro Romero, un ministerio de inmigración localizado en San Isidro, California. El Centro Romero trabaja con obreros migrantes en ambos lados de la frontera y ofrece experiencias  de inmersión a los que quieren entender mejor los problemas de inmigración.Mientras el grupo examinaba un segmento del muro, Correa Bernier hacía notar que tales barreras eran medios ineficaces de control fronterizo, porque si las pueden construir, también las pueden violar o evadir.“He visto fotos de una furgoneta que pasa por encima del muro —levantaron carriles de cada lado de la frontera”, agregó. “Como suelen decir, si ustedes tienen un muro de 50 pies de alto, todo lo que necesitamos es una escalera de 51 pies.“De manera que la política de construir muros no funciona. Nunca funcionó ni va a funcionar”.Correa Bernier esbozó para el grupo las dificultades que enfrentan los que quieren ingresar en Estados Unidos, así como los que han sido deportados.Él guió al grupo hasta una zona a 1,6 kilómetros aproximadamente de la frontera donde vieron docenas de enormes fábricas a las que llaman en el español de México “maquiladoras”,  o “plantas de ensamblaje” En esos edificios sin ventanas, jóvenes mexicanas, que trabajan supervisadas por hombres, ensamblan diferentes artículos que van directamente al mercado norteamericano.Las mujeres, explicó Correa Bernier, trabajan por unos pocos dólares diarios, seis días a la semana. No les conceden recesos laborales, les descuentan del sueldo cualquier tiempo que pasen en el baño o almorzando. Están sujetas a perder el empleo cuando cumplen 30 años; la razón oficial es que los administradores creen que [después de esa edad] ya no pueden mantener el ritmo de trabajo, gran parte del cual es hacer televisores de gran pantalla y otros artículos electrónicos para el mercado norteamericano. Las mujeres también están sujetas a despido si salen embarazadas.Al preguntársele por qué no se le puede imponer a las compañías que paguen mejores salarios y tengan mejores condiciones laborales, Correa Bernier tuvo como respuesta una sola palabra: NAFTA.El Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte, explicó él, permite que las compañías exploten la mano de obra barata en México para fabricar esos artículos. Cualquier compañía que aumente los salarios tendrá que aumentar los precios para encontrar compensación, y pocos están dispuestos a hacerlo en los mercados extremadamente competitivos de EE.UU. En el papel, las compañías son responsables de tratar bien a sus obreros, pero la aplicación es muy laxa, agregó Correa Bernier.“Nuestra posición en el Centro Romero es que EE.UU. no necesita un tratado de libre comercio” dijo, “necesitamos un tratado de comercio justo”.Y añadió: “la gente trabaja en las maquiladoras, esencialmente, para mantener mi estilo de vida en Estados Unidos, porque yo quiero que todos mis trastos domésticos sean baratos y accesibles.“Como solía decir mi padre, nadie es culpable, y todos somos responsables”.Un pueblo de desesperanzaUn momento particularmente emotivo para los líderes religiosos fue una visita a Chilpancingo, una villamiseria que no aparece en el mapa, pero donde viven miles de personas que intentaron cruzar ilegalmente la frontera de Estados Unidos, o que han sido deportadas, y ahora se encuentran trabadas aquí, sin recursos suficientes para dirigirse a ninguna otra parte. Algunas de ellas trabajan en las maquiladoras cercanas, pero los empleos suelen ser escasos.A Chilpancingo se llega cruzando el lecho, bordeado de cemento, que canaliza las aguas del río Tijuana. Correa Bernier dijo que ha visto como el agua ha cambiado de color debido a los productos químicos tóxicos que vierten en ella las fábricas. Mientras el grupo miraba del otro lado del río unas 10.000 chabolas construidas de fragmentos de madera y metal, podían verse a los niños que jugaban junto a las aguas contaminadas. No hay ninguna escuela en la zona, dijo Correa Bernier; en cualquier caso, estos niños no podrían costear las cuotas que exigen tanto las escuelas públicas como las privadas.“Los niños se quedan abandonados durante el día, porque mamá y papá están trabajando”, subrayó él. “Se ven expuestos a las drogas, al abuso sexual, al abuso emocional, al abuso físico y a otras cosas por el estilo. En consecuencia, se trata de un círculo vicioso”.Un joven que viven en Chilpancingo y que andaba cerca con su esposa y su hija, le dijo al grupo que él había crecido en la zona sur-central de Los Ángeles desde que era un bebé, y lo había deportado recientemente. En fluido inglés explicó que había sido enviado a prisión, aunque negó que hubiese comedido algún delito.“Pagué la culpa de otro” dijo.Apenas si tiene 24 años. Tenía documentos, pero se los quitaron y lo deportaron a México cuando cumplió su sentencia de prisión. Sus padres aún viven en Los Ángeles con sus cinco hermanos y una hermana, que son ciudadanos estadounidenses.Explicó que el único trabajo que ha encontrado es peleando gallos. “No puedo conseguir un empleo debido a mis tatuajes y mis antecedentes. Conseguir un empleo es difícil”.“Aquí la cosa es dura” afirmó.Un miembro del grupo también trabó conversación con Oscar, un niño de unos ocho años que explicó que había vivido en Estados Unidos toda su vida, pero que vino a México con sus padres que fueron deportados.Él dijo en inglés que quería ir a la escuela, pero que su madre y su padre no tenían dinero para enviarlo a él o a sus hermanos. Había intentado seguir sus estudios en el año y medio transcurrido desde que llegaron a Tijuana, pero le ha resultado difícil.“¿Qué hacen durante el día?” le preguntó un miembro del grupo.Sin ironía, Oscar le respondió que “limpiaban la casa”. Y le señaló hacia el hogar de su familia que, al igual que todas las casas de Chilpancingo, está construida de objetos encontrados.¿Te gustaría regresar a Estados Unidos?“Sí”, respondió sin dudar, pero no sin su familia. “La vida es dura en Chilpancingo”.“No ha sido una buena experiencia,” añadió en tono triste.Casa de Las PobresEl grupo del LACRL se detuvo en la Casa de Las Pobres, un ministerio que desempeñan cuatro monjas catolicorromanas que proporcionan comida, ayuda y atención sanitaria a los pobres de Tijuana, muchos de los cuales son migrantes.  En un tiempo daban tres comidas al día, pero, por razones económicas, se han visto obligadas a reducirlas tan sólo al desayuno. También ofrecen bolsas de alimentos, la mayoría de las cuales son donadas por tiendas de víveres de San Diego.Mary D. Glasspool, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles, con el P. Alexei Smith, encargado de las relaciones ecuménicas e interreligiosas de la Arquidiócesis Católica Romana de Los Ángeles, y Carlos Correa Bernier, ministro de la Iglesia Unida de Cristo y director ejecutivo del Centro Romero, conversan con una de las cuatro monjas que dirigen la Casa de las Pobres, un ministerio para los menesterosos de Tijuana. Un grupo de unos 25 líderes religiosos de Los Ángeles visitó San Diego y Tijuana los días 26 y 27 de febrero para enterarse más de los efectos de la política migratoria de EE.UU. en los pobres de México, y empezar a determinar cómo podrían laborar en pro de una reforma migratoria efectiva y global. Foto de Janet KawamotoCorrea Bernier, que tienen una larga relación de trabajo con Las Pobres, contó una historia de haber visitado el lugar, donde se encontró a una de las hermanas,  que se sentía angustiada porque estaban a punto de servir una comida, pero no tenían tortillas (un elemento esencial de la dieta mexicana). Correa Bernier les mostró lo que él les había traído: un camión lleno de tortillas donadas.Correa Bernier sirvió de intérprete mientras una de las hermanas le decía al grupo que el ministerio recibe “sólo un pequeño apoyo” de la Iglesia.“Los que nos ayudan son los ángeles y la gente que trabaja aquí, y la providencia de Dios”, dijo ella.El grupo del LACRL hizo una última escala en lo que Correa Bernier llama “El parque que ya no es de la amistad”. Explicó que hace pocos años el muro estaba más abierto, y las personas podían encontrarse y tocar a sus amigos y parientes del otro lado de la frontera. En los últimos años le han instalado [al muro] una gruesa malla metálica que impide todo contacto directo.De regreso a San Diego, los miembros del grupo estaban conscientes de la enormidad de la tarea de la reforma migratoria, pero estaban determinados a trabajar juntos para encontrar medios de aliviar los sufrimientos humanos de los inmigrantes.“Sobre todo y en primer lugar, podemos mostrarle a la gente que éste no es un problema episcopal, un problema católico, un problema judío, sino que es un problema humano”, dijo el P. Alexei Smith, que sirve como funcionario de relaciones ecuménicas e interreligiosas de la Diócesis Católica Romana de Los Ángeles. “Con todas las tradiciones religiosas que tenemos representadas en este viaje, podemos dar un testimonio unificado de la verdad a que nos enfrentamos, de lo que debemos hacer.“Creo que tenemos que empezar por mirar a las personas humanamente”, continuó Smith. “Tenemos que reconocer que cada uno de nosotros fue creado a imagen y semejanza de Dios, y para nosotros, desde un punto de vista cristiano, en ese extraordinario evangelio del juicio final, Jesús dice con bastante claridad,  ‘fui forastero y me recogisteis’; ‘fui forastero y no me recogisteis’ —y sabemos las consecuencias. Y creo que tenemos que vivir a la altura de eso.“Creo que el objetivo debe ser lograr una legislación para una reforma migratoria radical”, dijo la obispa Glasspool de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles. “Una de las cosas que aprendí de nuevo es que en esto tenemos una larga tarea por delante. No se trata tan sólo de redactar una ley o de aprobar algunas resoluciones. Es un proceso largo.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Editors’ note: A year ago today, Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy set to reeling a large part of the East Coast of the United States. At least 147 people died in the Atlantic basin because of the storm; of that number 72 were killed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States. Sandy caused an estimated $65.7 billion in damage, including destroying or damaging 650,000 homes and damaging hundreds of thousands of businesses. Episcopal News Service invited seven people to reflect on their experience of Sandy, what lessons they and their faith communities learned and what challenges they still face. All seven reflections are available here.[Episcopal News Service] After Hurricane Sandy ripped through Staten Island, destroying about a quarter of the island, there was an enormous outpouring of kindness and compassion from the community. Thousands of people whose homes were spared the destruction of Sandy came to the aid of their neighbors who lost everything. Young and old showed up to help clean streets, homes, beaches and parks. People realized that whether or not their home was damaged they were still part of this storm and it served as a catalyst to really bring everyone together with a common purpose of rebuilding community.This pulling together led to the creation of the Long Term Recovery Organization, a collaboration of over 80 organizations to better serve the Staten Island community throughout the process of recovery. This organization is an attempt to capitalize on the idea that things get done better together than apart.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s disaster recovery coordinator.It was remarkable to see how within six months a sense of normalcy returned due to the hard work and collaboration of many organizations. And, although the most visible destruction of Sandy has been removed – debris, boats on the streets, houses that were scattered across fields – the situation is still desperate for many people. There are still hundreds of homes that need to be rebuilt.It has been disheartening to see so many homeowners having to fight insurance companies to collect from their insurance policies. Many people have been told they weren’t covered by their polices due to technicalities. I have spoken to many homeowners that were not compensated fairly by their insurance companies and are left to rebuild their entire home with little or no money. Despite the lackluster response of the government and the insurance industry, Staten Island is recovering. Through the generosity of many disaster response programs like the Episcopal Church and other non-profit organizations, the homeowners have found some hope with rebuilding their lives.Beyond the immense challenge of rebuilding, homeowners also have the looming challenge of figuring out how to afford to raise their homes the required 10 to 15 feet that the government and insurance companies will be requiring in order for them to qualify for future insurance coverage. It will cost thousands of dollars that many simply don’t have, in addition to the long term increase in cost of flood insurance.While many homeowners are still facing a variety of challenges, the community also faces challenges of maintaining togetherness to see everyone to complete recovery. This community has withstood so much and needs to keep working together to ensure that the character of the neighborhoods remains intact. As time moves forward and Sandy is replaced by more immediate and visible disasters the work of the disaster response organizations becomes even more important. While many challenges remain, the community of Staten Island holds onto hope while moving everyday towards recovery.If anyone is interested in volunteering with the rebuilding effort please send an email to [email protected] or call us at 347-942-3787.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s (http://www.dioceseny.org/) disaster recovery coordinator.

Canon Paul-Gordon Chandler, a mission partner with The Episcopal Church and the former Rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cairo, Egypt from 2003-2013, has assumed the role of President/CEO of CARAVAN, an interfaith arts non-profit (501c3) that seeks to “build bridges through the Arts between the creeds and cultures of the East and West.” CARAVAN started as an interfaith arts movement out of Cairo and became a non-profit organization based from Chicago this last March 2014. CARAVAN brings together many of the Middle East’s premier artists, with noted Western artists, to build respect, increase understanding and encourage friendship between the Middle East and the West. One of the flagship initiatives of CARAVAN is the globally recognized CARAVAN Exhibition of Visual Art. Each year this unique exhibition has garnered attention from the international press, media and art world, attracting thousands of visitors. In 2013, many thousands of Middle Easterners and Westerners viewed CARAVAN’s public art exhibition of painted donkeys (symbolizing “Peace and Compassion”) by premier artists from the Middle East and West, first throughout Cairo, followed by an estimated 120,000 people visiting CARAVAN’s exhibition in London, England at the world renowned St. Paul’s Cathedral. The 2014 CARAVAN Exhibition of Visual Art opens in late August at National Cathedral in Washington D.C. (August 30-October 6) and involves 48 premier and emerging Egyptian and Western artists (of Muslim, Christian and Jewish backgrounds). Titled “AMEN—A Prayer for the World,” the exhibition seeks to express the deep, fundamental human acknowledgement of power and hope in the universe, for all peoples. This major arts initiative is an aspirational expression of hope and goodwill for the peoples of the Middle East and the rest of the world. Following the exhibition in Washington D.C. it will move to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City (October 12-November 23).

Clearly the hand of the new bishop was the dominant factor in this which bodes well for the diocese. His close relationships with Orthodox hierarchs was self-evident with two archbishops [one the Metropolitan of Atlanta in whose jurisdiction Miami occurs] occupying a special place in the procession and center seats behind the altar facing the congregation. His theological training and early ordained ministry in the C of E was noted with two or perhaps three English bishops participating. This liturgy should be a model for other dioceses!

Rev. Peter David Eaton was ordained and consecrated bishop coadjutor in the Diocese of Southeast Florida on May 9. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori served as chief consecrator. Photo: Barbara Lawless/Diocese of Southeast Florida[Diocese of Southeast Florida] Peter David Eaton was ordained and consecrated bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Southeast Florida on May 9 in a service held at Trinity Cathedral in Miami, Florida.Eaton will be the fourth bishop of the Southeast Florida, succeeding the Rt. Rev. Leopold Frade, who will retire in January 2016 after 16 years of service to the diocese.Over 1,200 people witnessed the service in person at the cathedral and via live stream video from a nearby hotel. Bishops from all over the country and the world attended the service. A historic occasion, this was the first time four bishops from churches in full communion with The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion participated in a service and together were co-consecrators of an Episcopal bishop. The Old Catholic Churches of the Union of Utrecht in Europe, the Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar in India, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Moravian Church in North America were all participants.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori led the service as chief consecrator and the Rt. Rev. Stephen Conway, the bishop of Ely, and one of Eaton’s classmates at Cambridge University, preached. The ecumenical representation from Christian churches from around the world made this consecration a significant event within The Episcopal Church. Frade recognized the significance of their presence as they greeted the crowd. A representative of the Armenian patriarch of Jerusalem and the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople processed along with other leaders of the church. “We have come here from the holy city of Jerusalem to participate in this holy day and our happiness increases greatly to see the day when Peter has been made a bishop,” said the representative of theArmenian patriarch.Other interfaith and ecumenical representatives were the Roman Catholic bishop of Palm Beach, the archbishop of Miami, and the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem.At the end of the service, guests cheered the consecration choir for their joyful, melodic voices, which brought most to their feet. The group included choristers from parishes around the Diocese of Southeast Florida. The music for the day, which included traditional songs in Spanish, French and English, also included special arrangements by several organists and the choir’s conductor, Matthew Steynor.The Rt. Rev. Peter David Eaton will be enthroned on Jan. 30 at Trinity Cathedral in Miami.— Altoria White is director of communications for the Diocese of Southeast Florida.  Bob McCloskey says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Peter David Eaton consecrated bishop coadjutor of Southeast Florida Cathedral Dean Boise, ID People Associate Rector Columbus, GA 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 TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Hopkinsville, KY center_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Bath, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

By Pat McCaughanPosted Jun 11, 2018 Deborah Kaufman Giordano, a healthcare recruiter and one of the co-creators of The Divine Office at St. Augustine by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica, California, uses hymnals to convert a plastic card table into a desk for now, while money for renovation is still being raised. Photo courtesy of Katie CadiganEditor’s note: This story is part of a series profiling the Episcopal Church’s recent work planting new churches and other faith communities. Other stories about recipients of grants from the Episcopal Church’s Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting can be found here. [Episcopal News Service] When Dennis Doherty found working from his West Los Angeles home too distracting and isolating, he went to coffee shops and even the local IHOP.Then he heard about The Divine Office (TDO) at St. Augustine by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica, California, a few miles away. It blends monastic-style spirituality and the secular phenomenon of creative coworking spaces.Initially, “I wondered, what’s all this prayer business?” Doherty told the Episcopal News Service during a recent telephone interview. “Then I decided, well, if this is the price I have to pay for having a quiet place to work, I’ll check it out.”The Rev. Katie Cadigan, associate rector and TDO founder, views it as a “micro-monastic community” operating in underutilized rooms on St. Augustine’s campus.With growing numbers of people working remotely, Cadigan hoped the church’s location – a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean – and its available space would draw from the area’s boom in younger, home-based professionals.Funded, in part, through a $40,000 Episcopal Church New Church Start grant last year, TDO is “like a WeWork or like the people who work in Starbucks independently,” but whose participants pray several times daily, Cadigan said.The Rev. Katie Cadigan“This is kind of like a day monastery, where people will come to work and worship,” she said.“Instead of going off to a monastery, having a wonderful retreat and coming home and realizing, after a day, a week, all that good feeling and connection is gone, what if we brought monastery-like experiences into our everyday world? What if we wrapped and enveloped our work lives in prayer?”Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Diane Bruce, a TDO adviser, said the idea immediately intrigued her. “People working from their homes can be and feel so isolated, which is the opposite of what Jesus modeled in being in community,” she told ENS.“The Divine Office offers a space in which people can come together and connect – it is a holy space and time!”The Rev. Thomas Brackett, Episcopal Church manager for church planting and mission development, said TDO’s application captured the imagination of reviewers from the Genesis Advisory Group on Church Planting by saying basically, “We believe that a rhythm of life blesses anybody who engages this.“And, instead of waiting for people to come and learn our prayer book or the Daily Office, we want to take it to them in ways that are meaningful to them.”And that it’s a work in progress.“They said from the very beginning, we don’t know what that is going to look like yet, but if you are willing to venture with us, we’re going to figure it out and we will let you know what we learn,” Brackett said.Christopher Curzon, IT consultant (left), and Dennis Doherty, founder of DohertyTech GOSLYN (right), are two of more than a dozen co-creators of The Divine Office who working on rickety chairs and card tables while funds for renovation are being raised. Photo courtesy of Katie CadiganA work in progressDoherty is among at least a dozen TDO “co-creators” who meet once, sometimes twice weekly and who take turns leading intervals of morning, noonday and closing prayers.Another member of the group, Deborah Kaufman Giordano, president and founder of Healthcare Recruiting Inc. especially appreciated that “not everything needed to be perfect to start this community plant. … We didn’t have to have it all figured out on day one.”While at times working with laptops on card tables and spotty internet has a rough-around-the-edges feel, the collective wisdom of the group of writers, filmmakers, editors and others is rewarding, said Giordano, who is married to actor James Giordano, of “Twin Peaks” fame.“TDO is making a huge difference in my life, and holds the potential of making a big difference in the lives of others … by balancing our work lives with our God-lives,” Giordano said. “This isn’t a space where we are trying to convert anyone. We never ever proselytize. But … I’m working on not compartmentalizing God, not pushing God into a box where I only reflect on Him maybe once a week, in Sunday worship. It gives me hope.”Currently, the group meets on Thursdays and some Tuesdays. Eventually, the goal is to expand to five days a week.Madeline Stewart, storyteller and community builder, coleads one of the three prayer and meditation services that envelop each workday at The Divine Office. Photo courtesy of Katie CadiganThe days begin with 9 a.m. Morning Prayer and have fallen into a rhythm of morning prayers and a lifting up of daily intentions.A bell chimes at noon to signal worship, and everyone “puts down the laptop,” Cadigan said. “They do not finish the email they were typing. Just like monks way back when would not finish their calligraphy. They would put down the pen, and at the sound of the bell, go into the chapel and do prayer meditation.”Noonday prayers are a “kind of check-in, a where we’re at right now vis-à-vis what we’d prayed for in the morning … and people are in gratitude,” Giordano said.Lunch is fluid; some people bring sack meals. Others walk the four blocks to the Santa Monica Pier or to local restaurants. Closing prayers are typically around 4 p.m., “the group decides when … and the prayers are more around reintegrating with the world or family or what’s next on the horizon,” Cadigan said.She joins the group for their regular prayer intervals, but “I have never, ever led prayer,” Cadigan said. “My role is as a visionary and a shepherd. The challenge is, how do I grow this organically and listen to the Spirit, so the gifts people have in the community can rise up and flourish in the ways the Spirit calls them to grow.”The TDO’s pattern is a modern-day take on the traditional daily round of prayer known as the Divine Office, the Liturgy of the Hours, or the Daily Office, which has been practiced since the earliest days of the Christian church. The practice has its roots in the ancient Jewish custom of offering prayers and psalms periodically throughout the day.Doherty, a distributor for restaurant environmental waste management systems, said he usually schedules his workweek around TDO, and spends his time there invoicing clients and responding to emails.“The good news is, the prayer has become very important to me. It’s not the price to pay for having a quiet place to work,” he told ENS during a telephone interview from Ireland, where he was vacationing. “Prayer is really part of the appeal and the value … so it’s pretty exciting.”Jesus as a co-workerCadigan, 56, began the TDO startup in August 2017, recruiting Giordano, 53, and Doherty, 64, both St. Augustine’s members.Over time, and with a more reliable internet connection, Cadigan anticipates that gradually, TDO’s reach will expand, hopefully, to a broader base, “since the nature of independent work is that you are not showing up every day.”For example, “there’s a writer who’s now in Atlanta, a filmmaker who just got back from several months in Cambodia filming, and another one in Boston editing, so the day-to-day makeup is a bit more fluid.”There are also physical plant and financial issues: a future building renovation is planned, and plans are in the works for that more reliable internet access as well as a campaign to raise the additional $220,000 needed to finance it all. Eventually, a membership fee will be charged to help defray those costs.Unanticipated, but necessary additions will include “phone booths” for private calls and even a shower. “The first week, we had a guy go swimming and then come up and work,” Cadigan recalled, chuckling. “So, we discovered we’re going to need a shower … and a feeding station.”She also discovered that “a good number of people who work and worship with us for just one or two days experience a spiritually meaningful shift of some sort and emerge seeing The Divine Office as a community to participate in on a more infrequent basis than I had originally envisioned.”This “unexpected rhythm is … stretching us to conceive of membership as something far broader than initially assumed. And a new dimension of discernment opens up for us around how we go about creating a cohesive community with far wider and more fluid edges than anticipated,” she said.Eventually, she hopes the model of being a cloister in and of the world will be replicable “in any denomination, any space.”“The way we think about monasteries is, they’re places you go away to,” she said. “You go to get your spirituality fix, but in the life of a monastic, the work and prayer is all integrated.”So, TDO is reclaiming the experience of the monastic, “milking cows and praying, writing your emails and you’re praying and, as we Episcopalians like to say, praying shapes believing.”We need places like The Divine Office to help us all to daily grow into discipleship, Cadigan added, quoting Giordano: “‘Jesus is our co-worker, sitting right beside us for every email, every phone call, every everything.’”— The Rev.

They call it “the Scriptorium.” They have converted pews into workspaces and offer morning prayer and then 4 writing sessions of 90 minutes with breaks for tea and lunch. It has grown very quickly in the past 1.5 years and proved popular. The theological perspective is more conservative in nature (which shapes the lunch discussions which are moderated), but it is overall a theologically diverse group and open. I have sometimes worked there regularly on my own doctoral dissertation and found it useful. Lunch is free once a week and other days people bring lunch. I think it is a great model for collaborative work. https://www.christianheritage.org.uk/Groups/282343/Home/Scriptorium/Scriptorium.aspx. And I saw a Lutheran experimental church plant called St Lydia’s also has a co-working space (for which people do pay a subscription): http://stlydias.org/co-working/.

We begin with morning prayer at our chapel inside the church at 9am. That’s about 30 minutes.
