Canon William ‘Chip’ H. Stokes, rector of St. Paul’s Church in Delray Beach, Florida, has been elected as 12th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey, pending the required consents from a majority of bishops with jurisdiction and standing committees of the Episcopal Church.Stokes, 56, was elected May 4 out of a field of nine nominees. He was elected on the fifth ballot by the election convention meeting at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton.“I am humbled beyond expression and deeply honored to have been elected as the 12th bishop of New Jersey,” he said. “I am grateful to the people of the diocese for their confidence, support and prayers. I am grateful above all to God in Christ who has called me and walked with me throughout my journey.”Stokes said the Diocese of New Jersey is a part of “the deep history” of the Episcopal Church. “It is an overwhelming thing to be brought into that history through this election,” he said. “The diocese is made up of a rich and wonderful variety of people. The diversity of the diocese is one of its great strengths and beauties. The people of the diocese understand well the very real challenges that face the church today. My experience of the clergy and lay people of the diocese is that that they are faithful, hopeful and up to any challenges as we allow the Holy Spirit to lead us ‘right onward.’ I look forward to getting to know them and to journeying with them hand in hand as we all respond to God’s call to us to love and serve one another, the communities in which we are placed and the wider church and world.”The other nominees were:The Rev. David Anderson, 56, rector of St. Luke’s Parish in Darien, Connecticut;The Rev. Joan Beilstein, 52, rector of Church of the Ascension in Silver Spring, Maryland;The Rev. Canon Dr. Francisco Pozo, 56, vicar, Christ Church, Trenton;The Very Rev. René John, 52, dean, Trinity Cathedral, Trenton;The Rev. Canon Donald J.

Skelton, 62, rector of St. Paul’s Church in Seattle, Washington; and canon for congregational development and leadership of the Diocese of Olympia; andThe Rev. Martha Sylvia Ovalle Vásquez, 60, rector of St. Paul’s Church in Walnut Creek, California.Under the canons (III.11.4) of the Episcopal Church, a majority of bishops exercising jurisdiction and diocesan standing committees must consent to the bishop-elect’s ordination as bishop within 120 days of receiving notice of the election.Pending a successful consent process, the ordination is scheduled for Nov. 2 at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton.Stokes will succeed the Rt. Rev. George Edward Councell who has served as the diocese’s 11th bishop since 2003.Biographical information about Bishop-elect Stokes is available here.View bishop-elect Stoke’s self-introduction video to the people of New Jersey here.

Kimball Arnold, deacon. Photo: David Barnard/St. Luke’s.[St. Luke’s Episcopal Church] The 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters were honored Tuesday, July 2, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Prescott, Arizona. The Paul Crowell Memorial Chapel was nearly filled to capacity with 54 people attending the moving service. Led by the Rev. Mark Moline, rector, the Rev. Richard Lassiter, assisting priest, and the Rev. Kimball Arnold, deacon, the names of all the fallen were read aloud, followed by the ringing of the church bell, one peal for each of the deceased. The Great Litany, a Gospel Reading, and Holy Eucharist comprised the remainder of the service.The flag flies at half-staff outside of St. Luke’s in Prescott to honor the fallen Hotshot crew. Photo: David Barnard/St. Luke’s.Even though the brave firefighters lost their lives in Yarnell, a few miles away, the Hotshots lived in Prescott. The Doce Fire occurred two weeks ago on Granite Mountain, which is eight miles north of Prescott. Several members of St. Luke’s lived very close to that fire, and they give credit to the 19 fallen Hotshots who played a key role in helping stop that fire before any homes were destroyed. For many of these members, the memorial service was very personal and emotional.During the service, the following prayer was read:The Hotshot’s PrayerWhen I am called to duty, Lord,to fight the roaring blaze,please keep me safe and strong.I may be here for days.Be with my fellow crewmembers,as we hike up to the top.Help us cut enough line,for this blaze to stop.Let my skills and handsbe firm and quick.Let me find those safety zones,As we hit and lick.For if this day on the line,I should lose my life,Lord, bless my Hotshot Crew,my children and my wife.Pat Huston, IHC wife(Copyright 2002) Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Shreveport, LA Sam Robertson says: Featured Events 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 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Belleville, IL Rector Pittsburgh, PA July 5, 2013 at 10:57 pm I too morn these brave men! and pray for their families and especially the children.

Neither the arduous training nor the careful preparations for this work by the teams and their leaders can totally assure them of their safety. This tragedy leaves not only a painful loss but a continuing gap in the many lives of their families and friends. The lives of those lost should be marked as heroes trying to protect the lives of others. God bless those who bring personal support and continuing care for their families and children.

Women Strike” el 14 de junio en Zurich, Suiza

first_imgSalario. Tiempo. Respeto. Ese fue el lema de la “Huelga de las Mujeres” de 24 horas por la igualdad salarial de género, la igualdad de derechos, el respeto y el fin de la violencia de género, que barrió Suiza el 14 de junio.“Women Strike” on June 14 in Zurich, SwitzerlandCientos de miles de mujeres y personas de todos los géneros desde sindicatos a grupos pro derechos de las mujeres y los grupos aliados, las instituciones educativas y religiosas, e incluso las granjas marcharon, se unieron y atacaron.Coloridas pancartas volaban desde puentes y edificios en las principales ciudades. El color púrpura era visible en todas partes, incluso en la ropa, debido a su simbolismo con los movimientos del sufragio de las mujeres europeas. Las mujeres en Suiza no pudieron votar hasta 1971.En Berna, la capital, se manifestaron 100.000 personas, mientras que los trabajadores atacaron en fábricas. Allí, Rachel Luthy enfatizó: “Debemos luchar por la igualdad salarial … derechos de aborto, tolerancia cero para la violencia doméstica y más. ¡Lo más importante es que debemos aplastar el patriarcado! ”(New York Times, 14 de junio)En la manifestación más grande del país, 160.000 personas marcharon en Zurich, un centro global de capital financiero. Los organizadores allí recibieron a mujeres, personas trans, intersex y queers, inmigrantes y personas de diferentes edades, comunidades, capacidades e ingresos. En Basilea, 40.000 personas participaron en 50 actividades, mientras que las acciones se llevaron a cabo en las principales ciudades y pueblos.Muchas mujeres hicieron huelga durante todo el día, pero los organizadores pidieron a las personas que no podían hacer eso que abandonaran sus lugares de trabajo a las 3:24 p.m., porque las mujeres trabajan gratis después de ese tiempo debido a la desigualdad salarial. Las mujeres ganan 20 por ciento menos que los trabajadores masculinos, una indignación en uno de los países más ricos del mundo. Es aún peor para los inmigrantes.El Foro Económico Mundial clasifica a Suiza en el puesto 44 en equidad salarial por trabajo similar, en comparación con todos los demás países. (npr.org, 14 de junio) ¡Qué enormes ganancias obtienen los capitalistas al engañar a las mujeres de sus salarios completos!Hace exactamente 28 años, 500.000 mujeres suizas realizaron una huelga histórica por la igualdad de derechos. Eso dio lugar a la aprobación de la Ley de igualdad de género en 1996, que prohibía la discriminación de género en el lugar de trabajo.En 2018, el Parlamento suizo promulgó una ley que pedía a las empresas que “estudiaran” las disparidades de pago por género, pero eso solo se aplicaba a las empresas con más de 100 empleados. No incluía sanciones para las empresas que violaban la ley.Las mujeres líderes sindicales calificaron la ley de “sin sentido”. Las mujeres se enfurecieron tanto que comenzaron a planear una protesta nacional. Los sindicatos se involucraron, y USS, un grupo de 16 sindicatos suizos, contribuyó a organizar la huelga del 14 de junio.A medida que aumenta el costo de la vida en la peor economía “amigable para la familia” de Europa, y la desigualdad salarial de género crece, esta lucha continuará.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
