Ulster 22 Bath 18 – The Verdict

first_imgIt was a real shame that Bath have allowed Luke Watson to slip through their hands and back to South Africa as Watson is the sort of player you can rebuild a club around and having seen Bath play a few times this season they are in serious need of rebuilding on and off the field and what I hear about Craig I gather he is the man to do it.They need to leave the Rec for another Bath city centre venue pronto as the ground isn’t up to National Division Three standards and they need a big clear out on the playing side if they are to compete not only with the top four in England but with the best in Europe as they used to do.And while we are talking about breaking the bank the first man Craig should see on Monday morning in Danny Grewcock. Why on earth is he hanging up his boots at the end of the season? He was magnificent (again at Ulster) and to see him charging down the field in the second half to tidy up an Ulster kick proved to me he still deserves a place in the England squad. Forget about retiring – sign on again!For Ulster they are starting something special. The ground is moving on leaps and bounds and in Johann Muller they have a leader for everyone to follow. And if there is a better blindside in the world than Stephen Ferris at the moment then I haven’t seen him.They lack experience in the back line and attack with youthful experience and without the steady hand of a 50-cap star. That’s what they need to go to the next level to create an environment for their promising youngsters.Check out the try by Nick Abendenan that scored the title of try of the season… It was also great to see Lee Mears careering around the field and stealing ball at the breakdown. He had a nightmare on the 2009 Lions tour but is getting back to his best. Good on him!I hear that Berrick Barnes may be near the top of Bath’s shopping list. Memo to Bruce Craig: If Berrick is seriously considering making the move to the west country break the bank for the young man as he is not only quality through and through but a good bloke as well. Have a look at Berrick below and get out the cheque book! LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Bath Rugby TeamBy Paul Morgan, editor of Rugby WorldBATH SHOULD be out of the Heineken Cup they are still in it because of the biggest shocks of the 2009-10 season, anywhere in the world.Bath lost 22-18 at Ulster but the rugby world almost fell off its axis in Italy as Aironi beat Biarritz 28-27. Let’s say that again – an Italian side that was only formed in the summer won their first match ever and it was against last season’s Heineken Cup runners-up. Rugby is an extraordinary game.Ravenhill is still one of my most favourite venues and it was rocking again for this Heineken Cup encounter and with the whole crowd on their feet in the second half to drive their heroes on to the line.Ulster won but in a mistake strewn first half they almost gave it away as Bath race into an early 15-3 lead. No side should ever lose a 12-point lead and the fact that Bath did must be worrying for the club and coaches.The penalty count killed them at Ravenhill as they conceded 15 to 5, allowing Ian Humphreys to kick 17 points and win the game.But as the table shows should they beat Ulster with a bonus point on Saturday the group is wide open, presuming Biarritz win with a bonus as well.The state of the poolsThe lack of attacking craft is the key element that is missing at the moment but I would definitely persevere with the experiment of Matt Banahan at 13. I know he drops a few but the guy has an abundance of talent and is learning yet another new position. Stick with him – he’ll come good but please let’s make sure he’s picked at 13 for the next 18 months. Give him a chance to learn the position!Have a look at some of Matt’s highlights TAGS: Bath Rugby last_img read more


Join England and use Wrestling to improve your skills

Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here. For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 visit Nick Easter and James Haskell get to grips with the new training technique – wrestlingEngland have introduced a new training method during pre-season in a bid to get in tip-top condition for the World Cup, writes Bea Asprey.The 45-man squad has been taking part in wrestling sessions under the direction of Paul Stridgeon, an ex-wrestler who is the RFU’s head of strength and conditioning.Rugby and wrestling require common skills and techniques, and similar exercises are useful for conditioning the participants of both sports. Back-rower James Haskell has been relishing the sessions, which he says are both enjoyable and a useful training tool.“I had been wrestling and doing some mixed martial arts for eight or nine months, so I was familiar with the concept when the England coaches introduced it to our training programme,” says Haskell. “It’s great fun and as well as being beneficial for your technique and conditioning, it brings a different element to our training. It also gets very competitive which all rugby players love.”The squad took part in two 35-minute sessions a week for three weeks, and dropped to one session after that to allow more time for rugby sessions. However, it will remain a focal point for their training camps throughout August.Haskell continues: “The sessions are physically demanding. You get very out of breath and your heart-rate goes through the roof. Our sessions are always in a hot marquee!”If you want to improve your technique for tackling and clearing people off the ball, this is a great activity for you. It teaches you how to manipulate an opponent’s body, and get into a position where you’re dominant at the breakdown and in tackle situations. Tackling and ruck and maul situations are similar to what you may encounter in a wrestling match, and it also trains you to operate at a low centre of gravity. Haskell explains: “We warm up with drills or technical work, and then concentrate on one aspect, such as splitting your feet or getting low to the ground, working one-on-one with a partner. We’ve used different techniques for clearing out rucks, done some grappling, and worked with dummies, driving them back and putting them down.”Check out the squad during their pre-season training session…This article appeared in the September 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS read more


Five ways England can beat New Zealand

first_imgThe All Blacks love to play; they will be frustrated and bored into mistakes if you disrupt their flow in attack. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The All Blacks are unbeaten in 2013 but they are not unbeatable. This is not a flawless side and has areas which can be exploited if the opposition is up to it.I believe England could be up for it. But they will have to play the game of their lives as this test is the one the world champions have been waiting for since 2012. If England do play the game of their lives, here are five ways they can overcome New Zealand.OneBreak up the rhythm: England kicking well could slow ABsEngland must suck the All Blacks into a slow and unattractive style of rugby.England showed how they can dictate the style of play with their win over Australia. They must do this again. Don’t be fooled into playing running, attacking rugby against New Zealand. South Africa showed in Johannesburg during the Rugby Championship that, while expansive rugby is a good watch, it’s not the way you perform against the All Blacks. France showed last weekend, especially during the first half, that if you use pressure and physicality you can stay close to New Zealand on the scoreboard. Going through the motions: The All Blacks did just enough to defeat the French in Paris at the weekendBy Andy Rowe England’s fly half Owen Farrell kicks the ball downfield against Argentina during the International rugby union test match between England and Argentina at Twickenham Stadium, southwest of London, on November 9, 2013. AFP PHOTO/ADRIAN DENNIS (Photo credit should read ADRIAN DENNIS/AFP/Getty Images) Two Commit numbers to the breakdown. France showed in Paris that if you slow down the All Blacks at the breakdown and then come off the line quickly in defence, you can frustrate their attack. Much of New Zealand’s attack is built around front-foot ball with their backs running onto the ball from great depth. Stop them getting over the advantage line and smother them.ThreeAttack their outside backs where New Zealand’s combinations are new. Centre Ben Smith is an impressive player and so is wing Charles Puitau, however these two have played together very little. Smith has played most of this season on the wing for the All Blacks, while he played fullback in Super Rugby. They’re untested as a combination. In recent years this has been one of New Zealand’s strengths but with Conrad Smith on a sabbatical, they’re using the autumn internationals to build depth. Attack the pack: England must go for New Zealand’s scrumFourNew Zealand’s scrum is possibly the weakest area of their game. It’s certainly not as bad as Australia’s, but it was definitely the third best in the Rugby Championship. Richie McCaw’s return may have added some grunt, however without the ballast of Brad Thorn in the pack anymore the New Zealand srum hasn’t got the same power it used to.FiveEverything must go England’s way. Against Australia there were two controversial calls that led to the home side scoring tries at Twickenham. Against the All Blacks last year there was an intercept to Manu Tuilaga that helped blow the scoreboard out. Whether it’s fifty/fifty refereeing decisions, an opportunistic bounce of the ball or a stroke of luck, England needs two or three moments in the game that lead to five-pointers. England must take these opportunities when they present themselves.last_img read more


Exclusive Brian O’Driscoll interview

first_imgI got on well with him when I first met him. He just seemed to have a very good understanding of the game and a clear philosophy himself as to the way he wants to play it. He wasn’t there to continue what Joe had done, he was there to print his own personal stamp on things, and he’s done that.MH: Looking back at the Lions last year, how hard was it not to be involved in the final Test squad?BOD: You want to be part of it, of course you do, but it was Warren Gatland’s prerogative to stick with Jamie (Roberts) and Jonathan (Davies), and its hard to argue that he got his selection wrong because the boys played well in the third Test.Could I have fit in there? I’d like to think so, but that doesn’t matter anymore. I was part of a Lions series win, I got to play in two out of three Tests and I felt a pretty big part of it.Round of applause: Richie McCawMH: Who has been your toughest opponent?BOD: That’s a tough one because there are guys I’ve played against lots of times and then there are one or two that were heroes. Someone like Tim Horan was a massive hero of mine growing up. I got my first cap against him and played against him in the World Cup later that year. He was an incredible player, just clever. He played rugby smart and even when he got a little bit older, he was still able to manage young folks like me – the wily old fox that knows how to keep you in his pocket. Meeting of minds: Brian O’Driscoll chats to former England U21 prop Matt Hampson In more recent times, I think someone like Richie McCaw, who has been incredible for the past ten years. To have amassed that many caps (124) as the New Zealand openside is a pretty good effort. And if I bloody feel in bad shape, I cannot imagine what its like for him to wake up in the morning!To read more of Hambo’s exclusive interview with O’Driscoll, see the June 2014 issue of Rugby World, which is on sale on Tuesday 6 May. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img RUGBY WORLD’S Matt Hampson has been to interview Brian O’Driscoll ahead of his impending retirement. Here’s what the Leinster, Ireland and Lions icon has to say as he prepares to hang up his boots…Matt Hampson: Did you ever consider playing outside of Ireland?Brian O’Driscoll: At times through my career I contemplated this. I got a bit of stick for being seen down at Biarritz one year, because my contract was up and it’s important to do a bit of negotiating.  But once I was happy at home and I felt that the contracts put on offer were fair for both the IRFU and for myself, it was an easy decision to make.I love being at home and winning the Heineken with my province has been huge, and it’s definitely meant an awful lot more winning with Leinster than it would have done winning with a French club or English club that I had gone on to join.European farewell: Brian O’Driscoll makes his final Heineken Cup appearance against ToulonMH: How do you feel about this season’s European rugby row?BOD: It’s weird… I’m coming from a strange point of view because I know that I’m finished and it’s not going to affect me as a player. But from the point of view of trying to protect what you’ve already won, I don’t want a new competition to come in and eclipse what was the Heineken Cup. I managed to win it on three occasions and I don’t people to look back in 20 years time and go, “What was that Heineken Cup, a kind of Mickey Mouse competition compared to the one we’re doing now?”So there’s a bit of self-preservation in there as well. It’s the best club competition in the world in my opinion; it’s the most exciting and it’s so bloody hard to win it. It just catches everyone’s imagination and it’s definitely a huge competition in Ireland. I think it’s probably been a good relationship for both; Ireland’s been very good for the Heineken and the Heineken has been very good for Ireland too.MH: What have you made of Matt O’Connor since he took charge of Leinster?BOD: A similar thing happened a few years ago with Joe Schimdt. It got to a particular point where we felt we were fairly motivated ourselves, so we just needed someone to come in and give us that last bit of guidance. We’d heard great things about Matt O’Connor and all the Leicester boys on the Lions tour confirmed that last year. They were absolutely gutted to see him go – that’s always a great sign.

Hotshot: Italy U20 centre Matteo Moscardi

first_img Italy U20 centre Matteo MoscardiDate of birth 24 January 2000 Born Rovigo Club Rovigo Country Italy Position CentreWhen did you first play rugby? Rugby has always been at the very core of my life as both my dad and uncle played for many years for Rovigo and Treviso in the Italian league. My uncle, Alessandro, also skippered Italy in the Six Nations.What other sports did you play growing up? I played soccer and baseball but I felt it wasn’t right for me. Aged seven I moved to rugby and I’ve never left.The values and friendship are the things I like the most. Discipline, respect and commitment are unique in rugby. To play for your team and score tries to help the team reach their goals is amazing, a huge stimulus.Who were your childhood heroes? Sonny Bill Williams and Brian O’Driscoll – two legends. Watching them play was a real show.What positions have you played?I played as winger, full-back and No 8. Eight and 13 are my favourite positions as you’re always at the core of the game.What are your strengths? Speed and offloads, alongside a good understanding of the game. Meet one of the up-and-coming players in Italian rugby Talk us through your progress with Italy U20… I played in the Junior World Cup in 2018 in France as a rookie, still being U18. It was an honour but a tough one in terms of managing a new kind of pressure. It was stimulating to compete at a higher level than I was used to, and helped me grow physically and mentally. I got huge support from senior players.What has been the biggest influence on your career? Not being selected for an inter-regional competition changed my approach. I started setting personal goals for myself, both short and long term, and I’m now fulfilling them.My family has always been a huge support for me. Everything is easier with your family’s support.What are your goals for the rest of 2019? First is getting a pro contract with Zebre or Benetton as soon as I can. In order to do that, improving my weaknesses and strengths to be an even more impactful player.What do you do away from rugby? The few times I’m not committed to rugby, I spend time with my girlfriend, Carolina, and my family. I also love being on the road and enjoying great landscapes, so I like travelling whenever I can.RW VERDICT: The 6ft and 13st 10lb centre trains with the National Academy on a day-to-day basis. His vice-captaincy role in the Six Nations shows he has leadership skills similar to uncle Alessandro Moscardi, who led the senior Italy team 19 times.

Anglicans worldwide expresses shock, sadness over Pakistan bombings

first_imgAnglicans worldwide expresses shock, sadness over Pakistan bombings Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT September 26, 2013 at 2:32 pm A clarification about All Saints Church in Peshawar and Anglicanism: All Saints’ was established in 1883 as an Anglican Church under the auspices of CMS. As Christopher Lo points out above, in 1970 the Anglicans of Pakistan united with Lutherans, Methodists and Presbyterians to form the Church of Pakistan. So it is not accurate today to identify All Saints’ Church as an Anglican parish. It is rather a parish, or congregation, of the Diocese of Peshawar, one of the eight dioceses of the Church of Pakistan. It is a Church of Pakistan parish. The church unions of south Asia – Church of South India, Church of North India, Church of Pakistan, Church of Bangladesh – have not always gone smoothly. To this day each of these churches is beset by holdouts from the previous denominations who not only do not wish to join but who dispute ownership of property, funds and buildings. Thus it is important to avoid identifying a congregation today by its pre-union denominational affiliation. One of the gifts that union brought was that through the united church each of the uniting denominations became integrated into the worldwide fellowships of the other uniting denominations. Thus the Church of Pakistan is equally a member of the Anglican Communion, the Lutheran World Federation, and the comparable Methodist and Presbyterian fellowships.Titus Presler, PrincipalEdwardes College, Peshawar Youth Minister Lorton, VA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET September 23, 2013 at 7:35 pm According to Wikipedia, the Church of Pakistan was established in 1970 with a union of Anglicans, Scottish Presbyterians (Church of Scotland), United Methodists, and Lutherans. It is the only United Church in the South Asia which involves the Lutheran Church. Though united, it is mainly Anglican in theology and outlook, since from the beginning Anglicans formed the bulk of the 800,000 strong membership and most of the important sees.More information about the above mentioned Diocese of Peshawar may be found at: http://www.peshawardiocese.org/churchofpk.aspIn February, 2013, Bishop Humphrey Peters (the present Diocesan Bishop of Peshawar) visited the Diocese of Texas as the guest of Bishop C. Andrew Doyle. More information about his visit may be found at: http://www.epicenter.org/article/pakistani-bishops-minister-in-hostile-land/ [Anglican Communion News Service] Anglicans in Pakistan and around the world have expressed shock and sadness after two suicide bombers killed about 80 people and injured 200 at a church in Pakistan.Within hours of the news of the deadly attack on All Saint’s Church in Peshawar, members of the Anglican Communion had spoken out against the attack, called for prayers, and, in India, even arranged a solidarity march.On the Peshawar diocese website, Bishop Humphrey Peters condemned the attack and expressed his condolences to all the families who lost loved ones. He appealed for Christians in Pakistan and around the world to pray for the affected families.In a Tweet, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby wrote, “Peshawar bomb reveals depths of human evil, yet those suffering speak of forgiveness as well as justice. That is the love of Jesus shown.”He also wrote to the moderator of the Church in Pakistan, offering assurance of his prayers and fullest support. He said, “I  am appalled to learn of the attack on All Saints’ Church in Peshawar as people had gathered there to pray. My heart goes out to all those bereaved and injured by this terrible attack.  I pray for the peace of Pakistan and the protection of Christ’s people.  With the people of Peshawar I join in calling for the Pakistan Government and all people of good will to ensure that communities may go about their daily lives in safety, and that the perpetrators are brought to justice.”Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori released a statement saying, “This act of violence is a reminder of the preciousness and fragility of life, and of our interconnectedness. We are all wounded, we have all lost family, friends, and fellow citizens of the world. We will continue to pray for the bereaved, for the injured, for the perpetrators, for their communities, and for this broken world.”Diocese of South Western Brazil’s Bishop Francisco Silva prayed “that God would console the bereaved and strengthen the faith of those brothers and sisters who suffer the consequences of religious intolerance.”Bishop of Amritsar in India Pradeep Samantaroy said, “The ghastly killing of Christians in Peshawar is shocking.” He had been unable to talk to Peters but did convey the diocese’s grief and solidarity to Moderator of the Church of Pakistan, Bishop Samuel Azariah.Samataroy’s diocese also held a candlelight procession and prayer service yesterday evening to express their solidarity with Christians in Pakistan.On social media, Anglicans and Episcopalians from around the world have been expressing their sympathy to Christians in Pakistan, in particular to a youth officer of the Church Pakistan, Insar Gohar, who was said to have lost his mother and children in the bomb blast.In Pakistan, Christians affected by the attack expressed not only sadness, but also anger that they had not been afforded better protection against such violence. Peters said, “The attack on All Saint’s Church is the total failure of the new government of KPK and government has failed to provide security to the minorities in Khayber Pakhtunkhwa, Peshawar Pakistan.” Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit a Press Release Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Christopher Lo says: Lloyd Casson says: Jeanne Daniels says: September 24, 2013 at 12:36 pm So what?

David Gortner, que representó al Seminario Teológico de Virginia, lograron conocer mejor a la Iglesia brasileña, se reunieron con una agrupación interreligiosa, visitaron, con el personal de un programa de educación medioambiental diocesano para niños, una aldea guaraní y un hogar de ancianos dirigido por la Iglesia. El 6 de junio, la Obispa Primada dio una conferencia sobre el episcopado y el sexismo durante un seminario de teólogas laicas y ordenadas que coincidió con los eventos del fin de semana.“Hay señales abundantes de esa unidad aquí —en el profundo respecto mostrado hacia todos los miembros de la agrupación interreligiosa que conocimos aquí el viernes; en vuestra capacitación consciente y proactiva de las mujeres, las minorías sexuales y los pueblos indígenas (y) en vuestro cuidado y solidaridad con los pobres, incluido nuestro pobre y explotado medioambiente. Junto, todo el pueblo de Dios se empeña en crear una totalidad más eficaz”, dijo la Obispa Primada en su sermón.“Esta celebración es acerca de esa salud e integridad crecientes, y muchas son las barreras que se han desplomado para hacernos llegar hasta este punto. Para cualquiera que no tenga una idea clara de lo que significa realmente la vida —y eso somos todos nosotros en algún momento— vuestro nuevo libro de oración ayudará a las personas a reconocer lo santo que hay en torno a todos nosotros y dentro de nosotros. Nos acercará más a una Iglesia que en verdad sí respeta la dignidad de todo ser humano, hombre y mujer, homosexual y heterosexual, descendientes de todas las naciones, y las otra partes de la creación de Dios”.La presencia de la Obispa Primada, dijo el Rdo. Arthur Cavalcante, secretario provincial de la Iglesia, era un testamento a la relación histórica entre las dos iglesias y una “señal de que podemos continuar edificando la misión de Dios que nos han encargado”.En 1890, dos misioneros del Seminario Teológico de Virginia, Lucien Lee Kinsolving y James Watson Morris, establecieron la Iglesia en Porto Alegre, en el sureño estado de Rio Grande Do Sul.En 1907, los empeños misioneros en el Brasil dieron lugar al establecimiento de un distrito misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal bajo el liderazgo de Kinsolving, quien para entonces era obispo.“Me siento continuamente conmovido por la herencia de Virginia y su influencia en la misión cristiana y episcopal, y que sistemáticamente hayamos enfatizado el desarrollo de una Iglesia indígena con liderazgo indígena”, dijo Gortner, profesor de evangelización y liderazgo congregacional y director del programa doctoral de ministerio en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia.

Markham, decano del seminario, y el 6 de junio, durante una recepción, una carta del Rdo. Robert Heaney, director del Centro de Estudios de la Comunión Anglicana.“Las personas en papeles de liderazgo son notables, comprometidas y apasionadas y muestran un auténtico júbilo en el ministerio”, dijo Gortner, en una entrevista con ENS. “Admiro las formas en que procuran asociarse con los pobres y marginados y los que no tienen poder en esta sociedad y abogar por ellos. Espero [que lleguen a tener] una influencia mayor que sólo puede venir con el crecimiento”.El Brasil es el quinto país del mundo, tanto en extensión como en población, con más de 200 millones de habitantes. Aunque el catolicismo romano ya no es una religión patrocinada por el Estado, el Brasil tiene más catolicorromanos —123 millones— que ningún otro país del mundo.Los lazos históricos de la Iglesia con el seminario y la Iglesia Episcopal, más que sus nexos con la Iglesia Anglicana, que estableció capellanías anglicanas para servir a expatriados, son de gran importancia.“La presencia de los misioneros de Virginia siempre ha sido notable y de mucha importancia para la Iglesia en Brasil al comenzar la misión aquí”, dijo la Rda. Glenda McQueen, encargada de América Latina y el Caribe de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, añadiendo que la Iglesia también experimentó un período de separación del seminario que esperaba remediar. “De manera que poder reconectar con el Seminario de Virginia ha sido muy importante ya que era conectar con el lugar donde la misión comenzó, y con la gente que vino.“También, la relación con la Iglesia Episcopal ha sido importante para Brasil de mantener y de fortalecer esa relación a través de los años, de manera que la presencia de la Obispa Primada habla de esa relación y de esa asociación. Creo especialmente también que la celebración de los 30 años de la ordenación de mujeres sirve para resaltar el liderazgo de las mujeres donde, históricamente, todos los líderes han sido hombres. Pero la asociación es lo que resulta realmente importante para ellos, y que viniera [la representación de] Virginia fue sencillamente la guinda del pastel”.En los años 50, la Iglesia brasileña comenzó a hablar acerca de su autonomía y en 1965 el distrito misionero se convirtió en la Provincia Autónoma del Brasil.Durante la guerra fría —una época en que el gobierno de EE.UU. respaldaba regularmente a los gobiernos de derecha en un intento de contener la propagación del comunismo en Latinoamérica, a veces participando en el derrocamiento de líderes izquierdistas, incluido el golpe militar de 1964 que depuso al presidente del Brasil João Goulart— un resurgente nacionalismo se hizo fuerte en Brasil.“Todo el mundo sabe que EE.UU. desempeñó un papel clave en el proceso [el golpe] y el pueblo de la Iglesia comenzó a sentirse nacionalista”, dijo da Silva, añadiendo que la Iglesia se convirtió en una provincia independiente un año después.La Iglesia Episcopal mantuvo su ayuda económica a la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil hasta 1975. No obstante, la Iglesia perdió a muchos de sus clérigos, que anteriormente cobraban [sus salarios] en dólares norteamericanos en lugar de en la más débil moneda local, y la Iglesia se vio obligada a vender propiedades.“Al proceso de autonomía no lo dirigieron correctamente y para nosotros llegó a ser muy difícil de manejar”, dijo da Silva. “En lo económico, éramos del todo dependientes”.Cincuenta años después, la Iglesia celebra su autonomía, y continúa en la tradición misionera de su fundación.Además de Brasil, La Iglesia Episcopal tiene relaciones pactadas con iglesias episcopales en Liberia, y las Filipinas, que se convirtieron en provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana en 2005, y con la Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América (IARCA)“Brasil es una notable historia de éxito. Han alcanzado la madurez y la han sobrepasado de muchas maneras”, dijo Jefferts Schori, añadiendo que Brasil fue la primera provincia en llegar a ser autónoma a partir de la obra de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera. Nos están enseñando”.(La Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS) es el nombre con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).“Ellos nos empujaron a movernos hacia un nuevo nivel de relación”, dijo la Obispa Primada. “Las Filipinas han hecho algo semejante también, en su resuelta decisión de adelantar la autonomía antes de lo programado y de ofrecerle ese inmenso regalo a la Convención Nacional. Y a largo plazo, yo espero que ese es el futuro para toda una serie de diócesis que se encuentran fuera de EE.UU. Debemos avanzar hacia ese tipo de visión y ayudarlas a hacerse autónomas de un modo que les permita prosperar. En eso radica, creo yo, la labor de sostenibilidad [de la IX Provincia] a largo plazo”.— Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Porto Alegre, Brasil] Durante 125 años la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil ha estado edificando el reino de Dios mediante su dedicación a la misión en el país más grande de América del Sur, gracias tanto a la ayuda de asociaciones locales como de haber conservado sólidos vínculos históricos con la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos —en un espíritu de “unidad”.“Esta Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil tiene la misma vocación a la unión que Jesús le pidió a sus discípulos”, dijo la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, durante un sermón que predicó el 7 de junio en la ciudad sureña donde dos misioneros enviados por el Seminario Teológico de Virginia establecieron la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil en 1890.“Vuestra historia aquí ha sido un largo proceso de reunir a las personas para bendecirlas. Vuestro don ha sido la convicción de que la unidad en la Iglesia se supone que bendiga también a toda la comunidad. El ser uno comienza por compartir las buenas nuevas del amor de Dios para todos y por enseñar a las personas a vivir juntas como amigos —amigos de Dios y los unos de los otros. Vemos que la unidad tiene lugar en congregaciones y en las maneras en que sus miembros están presentes en la comunidad más amplia —alimentando, curando y procurando la justicia” —afirmó.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori predicó durante el oficio eucarístico del 7 de junio en la catedral de la Santísima Trinidad en Porto Alegre, Brasil, lugar de nacimiento de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil. El Rdo. Luiz Coelho, de la Diócesis de Río de Janeiro, tradujo el sermón del inglés al portugués. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Más de 200 personas se reunieron al anochecer en la catedral de la Santísima Trinidad, la catedral Nacional de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil, para el oficio de tres horas en conmemoración del 125º. Aniversario de la Iglesia, los 50 años de autonomía y los 30 años de la ordenación de mujeres. Además de predicar, la obispa primada concelebró con el arzobispo Francisco de Assis da Silva y el obispo Humberto Maiztegue de la Diócesis Meridional, donde está localizada la catedral.Desde la firma de un pacto bilateral en 1990, luego de un período de separación, la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos y la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil han estado trabajando para reconectarse, restablecer sus nexos de amistad y alentar la asociación y las relaciones de compañerismo entre las dos iglesias.“En los últimos 20 años las relaciones han llegado a ser incluso más importantes. Creo que pueden enseñarnos muchísimo acerca del empuje misional a los lugares que nunca han visto ninguna buena nueva, o que están en urgente necesidad de ella”, dijo Jefferts Schori a Episcopal News Service, refiriéndose a la labor misionera de la Iglesia con los pueblos indígenas que afirma la solidaridad y el compañerismo, más que dádivas. “Eso es un punto de vista notable y una teología que la mayoría de las personas en la Iglesia de EE.UU. nunca entenderían o nunca iniciarían.“Brasil es un lugar postcolonial, y se siente muy confiado al respecto y eso es algo que podríamos aprender. Que no se trata de dádivas generosas, que ha sido el M.O. (modus operandi) de la Iglesia Episcopal durante mucho tiempo. Hoy es menos así, pero eso es por lo que somos famosos. Estamos empezando a aprender ahora a estar en solidaridad, pero la Iglesia aquí ya sabe cómo y podría enseñarnos un montón”.La Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil ha estado afincada en la misión a lo largo de sus 125 años de existencia; el campo misionero establecido en el sur se ha propagado hasta los remotos confines del Amazonas, así como más recientemente en el nordeste. Sin embargo, en su relación con la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos, a la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil la afectó un cisma de más de una década relacionado con la sexualidad humana y la ética, tanto en lo que respecta a la conducta heterosexual como homosexual, explicó da Silva en una entrevista con ENS el 6 de junio.La Iglesia eligió el tema “unidad y acción de gracias” como una reafirmación de su compromiso con la misión y el servicio a través de la “unidad” no de la “uniformidad”, y para expresar su gratitud por su valiosa historia, así como su compromiso a marchar adelante como una sola Iglesia, afirmó él.

Photo: Gavin Drake/Anglican Communion News Service[Anglican Communion News Service] Youth projects in the Anglican provinces of Kenya and Rwanda have been chosen by African Anglicans to receive the first of a new set of Anglican Communion awards in recognition of their success in youth discipleship.Details of the new awards were announced in February: At each meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council the provinces of the region hosting the meeting will be invited to submit entries which will be judged by the provinces of the region.One award will recognize the success of an existing project while the other will receive a cash grant of £10,000 GBP to support innovative and embryonic schemes.The first winners were announced last night at a dinner hosted by Bishop of Lusaka David Njovu and the Diocese of Lusaka for members of the ACC and local Christians in the grounds of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.Explaining the thinking behind the award, the chair of the ACC, Bishop James Tengatenga, told those present at the dinner that the former official youth work network of the Anglican Communion had come to a close and that the area work had been transferred to the communion’s mission department. Discussions had taken place about how youth work could be supported and reinvigorated and the concept for the award was developed.The Council of Anglican Churches in Africa (CAPA) – the regional grouping of Anglican provinces on the continent – chose the Anglican Students’ Fellowship (ASF), a movement of Anglican students in colleges and universities for the recognition award.The ASF, under the umbrella of the Kenya Anglican Youth Organisation (KAYO), nurtures Anglican students to act as role models for their peers and supports them through discipleship. It also ensures Anglican students remain connected to local churches while they are at universities. Its wide ranging program also includes the promotion of Christian values amongt the students and encouraging them to “collectively give back to our community and local churches.”The Bishop of Nairobi Joel Waweru, one of the Kenyan members of the ACC, received the award from Tengatenga.
