Nadie debe ser ignorado ni dejado fuera”.Aunque la Iglesia en Gales aprobó el 12 de septiembre de 2013 abrir el episcopado a las mujeres, decidió que el derecho eclesiástico no se alteraría en el curso de un año para darle tiempo a los obispos galeses a preparar un Código de Conducta. La Iglesia de Inglaterra también tomó una decisión histórica cuando su Sínodo General, en su reunión de julio, aprobó una legislación que le permite a las mujeres convertirse en obispas.El obispo Gregory Cameron, de la Diócesis de San Asaf, invitó a la obispa Gayle Harris, sufragánea de la Diócesis de Massachusetts, a predicar y presidir el oficio eucarístico en la catedral de San Asaf.

Algunos feligreses dijeron que no iban a volver, contó Harris. Afortunadamente, la mayoría volvió, entre ellos algunos disconformes que más tarde reconocieron que “no era tan malo como habían esperado”.“Lo más importante es la presencia de Dios”, dijo Harris. “En primer lugar y ante todo yo soy creada a imagen de Dios. Nadie puede negar que ésa es mi identidad. Pero todas mis experiencias de respuestas negativas no se han acabado. Me han tildado de incompetente debido a quien soy, como mujer negra. Eso continúa. Aún creo que este mundo tiene que lidiar con la diferencia del color de la piel. Seguimos eludiendo el problema. Como negra, a veces tengo que preguntar si es porque soy mujer, pero la mayoría de las veces es porque soy negra y mujer. No se ha abordado [a fondo] el problema de la raza.Harris dijo que le está agradecida a Cameron por su invitación a San Asaf. “Dice mucho de él y de lo amable que es. Poro yo veo esto como otra oportunidad de participar y encontrarme con el otro”, afirmó. “Creo que Dios está presente en este momento”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri. La visita de Harris se produjo en respuesta a la invitación del obispo Gregory Cameron, de la Diócesis de San Asaf, quien dijo que le había sorprendido el mucho tiempo que le había tomado a la Iglesia en Gales dar el paso de ordenar mujeres como obispos.“Tengo una vasta experiencia sobre las mujeres obispos en la Comunión Anglicana, y su ministerio es tan natural y apropiado como nuestra membresía en la Iglesia, de hombres y mujeres”, le dijo él a ENS. “En efecto, las obispas que conozco han sido de capacidad y talento excepcionales. Es precisamente porque las obispas no son nuevas para la Comunión que me siento encantado de haber tenido la oportunidad de invitar a la obispo Gayle Harris a estar con nosotros, en tanto nos acercamos a la fecha en que las mujeres puedan ser elegidas al episcopado en Gales”.Pero para Harris, la segunda afroamericana en ser consagrada obispa en la Iglesia Episcopal, su llegada al Reino Unido no resultó tan sencilla como era de esperar. La Guardia Fronteriza la detuvo durante más de cinco horas y le dijo que tendría que regresar a EE.UU. aunque ella tenía todos sus documentos y permisos en regla, incluidas [las invitaciones] de la Iglesia en Gales y del arzobispo de York.A pesar del contratiempo, Harris dijo que los funcionarios fronterizos “fueron muy amables, educados y corteses” y que una vez que comprobaron que su visita era legítima, rescindieron la orden de deportación. “Sé que la gente del aeropuerto intentaba cumplir con su deber”, dijo, añadiendo que el funcionario jefe de la Guardia Fronteriza del R.U. le había ofrecido una disculpa personal por lo larga que había sido la detención.Harris se sintió aliviada de superar la experiencia y concentrarse en el itinerario planeado y las próximas celebraciones.Harris ya tenía planes de visitar el R.U. —para oficiar en la boda de una ahijada— cuando la invitaron a expresar un saludo a Cruzar el Umbral [Crossing the Threshold ], una conferencia que celebra el cambio legal para permitir que las mujeres lleguen a ser obispas.Ella asistirá a la conferencia el 4 de septiembre en Cardiff, en la que Geralyn Wolf, obispa jubilada de Rhode Island, participará como oradora principal.La Iglesia Episcopal se convirtió en la primera provincia de la Comunión Anglicana en abrir el episcopado a las mujeres mediante un decreto de la Convención General de 1976, aunque habrían de pasar otros 13 años hasta que la Rvdma. Barbara Harris —predecesora de la obispa Gayle Harris en Massachusetts— fuera consagrada como su primera obispa en 1989. En julio pasado, la Iglesia Episcopal conmemoró los 40 años transcurridos desde que las primeras mujeres fueron ordenadas presbíteras. Sin embargo, la mayoría de las provincias de la Comunión Anglicana aún no ordenan mujeres al episcopado.“Hay lugares donde no podremos ver mujeres ordenadas al episcopado en el curso de nuestras vidas o incluso en la próxima generación, pero creo que Dios puede llamar a quien Él quiera, hombre o mujer, negro o blanco”, dijo Harris. “A veces resulta difícil para nosotros oír y discernir ese llamado y es por eso que en algunos lugares toma más tiempo que en otros”.La obispa Gayle Harris fue ordenada al presbiterado en 1982 y electa obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts en 2002. Esa trayectoria, apuntó ella, ha tenido sus altibajos, pero, a lo largo de ese tiempo, la ha sostenido la presencia de Dios.Gayle Harris, obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts, predica el 31 de agosto en la catedral de San Asaf, en Gales.

first_imgCincinnati cathedral drafts plan to study removing memorials to Confederate figures Rector Tampa, FL R H Lewis VTS1963 says: Marceline Donaldson says: September 14, 2017 at 9:41 pm This entire monument removal business is nothing more than the frightened response of a polis afraid to stand against extreme entitlement. The Church certainly has a mission that is greater than enabling extremists in “making them pay”. Certainly we have better things to do. The Confederacy was founded on the rather childish presumption that men could enslave others simply because it suited their economic and social purposes to do so, and no law could stop them. There is no reason for the Church or society to enable the same sort of entitlement today. The Rev. Suzanne Johnston says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Doug Desper says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Shreveport, LA September 14, 2017 at 5:38 pm There was , as I recall , a painting of an Anglican pastor in the run-up to the Revolutionary War whowas wearing military garb under his vestments Nothing new in that. That Polk and Lee and others were traitors to the United States seems regularly ignored. They led a military effort to create a new political entity which promulgated slavery and never planned to end it. Context may be important in some cases but let’s be clear as to what the purpose of the break-away group was. Rector Hopkinsville, KY September 14, 2017 at 5:23 pm I grew up in Cincinnati and was ordained in the Diocese of Soutrhern Ohio. I remember when the new Christ Church was built and I attended the ordination of Roger Blanchard as Bishop. Now, years later I support the efforts of a respectful conversation and hoped-for removal or Confederate stained glass, plaques, and other memorials from the Cathedral building. They should be stored in a museum setting where this era of our history can be studied and it legacy interpreted to foster racial reconciliation today.The Church is about restoring all people to unity with God and each other in Christ (BCP, p855). We need to live into this mission and work for equity and racial justice for all. Blessings on your journey. R H Lewis VTS1963 says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general, is depicted as receiving a blessing from Virginia Bishop William Meade in this stained-glass window at Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati, Ohio. Photo: Sarah Hartwig/Christ Church Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal cathedral in Cincinnati plans to launch a discernment process as it considers removing memorials to Confederate figures after the dean called for their removal in a sermon last month.Christ Church Cathedral’s vestry, which discussed Dean Gail Greenwell’s request at its Sept. 13 meeting, agreed to study the memorials’ historical significance, engage in conversations with parishioners on the issue and consider ways of memorializing abolitionists and heroes of racial justice.“The vestry believes that a proper response requires an active period of discernment,” Senior Warden Don Land and Junior Warden Julie Kline said in a statement dated Sept. 14. The statement did not provide a timeline for the discernment process.The latest development comes a month after a white supremacist rally on Aug. 12 in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent and deadly, fueling a national conversation about the appropriateness of Confederate monuments in public spaces, including Episcopal institutions.Neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other hate groups chose to rally in Charlottesville to oppose the city’s plan to remove its statue of Robert E. Lee. The Confederate general also is depicted in a stained-glass window at Christ Church Cathedral, a fact that Greenwell highlighted in her Aug. 20 sermon.“The church itself has been complicit in enshrining systems and people who contributed to white supremacy, and they are here in the very corners of this cathedral,” Greenwell said.The cathedral’s stained-glass window, a gift from a Lee descendant, shows Lee receiving a blessing from Virginia Bishop William Meade. Greenwell also pointed to the cathedral’s plaque honoring Leonidas Polk, who was consecrated in 1838 in Cincinnati and served as the missionary bishop of the Southwest.This plaque honoring Leonidas Polk, an Episcopal bishop and Confederate general, is displayed in Christ Church Cathedral. Photo: Sarah Hartwig/Christ Church CathedralPolk, one of the founders of Sewanee: The University of the South, was bishop of Louisiana when he served as a Confederate general. He was known to wear his Episcopal vestments over his military uniform, “a thoroughly offensive merge of his professed faith and his fervor to see the institution of slavery endure,” Greenwell said.She called for the vestry to re-examine the two memorials in the cathedral with the hope they will be removed.“We need to be very careful, very thoughtful about what we choose to revere on a plaque or put on a pedestal,” she said in her sermon.The vestry responded this week with its three-part plan. For the first part, it “will host an educational event to explore the contextual historical significance of these memorials and discern their impact on present day members of the Cathedral Community,” the wardens’ statement said.That will be followed by conversations within the congregation, which should offer “the input necessary to make final determinations.”The third step comes in response to Greenwell’s additional challenge to the cathedral to replace the Confederate symbols with tributes to those who fought for racial justice, with special consideration for Cincinnati’s role as a stop on the Underground Railroad helping slaves find freedom in the North.Washington National Cathedral announced last week it was removing two stained-glass windows featuring Lee and fellow Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson, installed in 1953.That decision abruptly ended the Washington cathedral’s own lengthy process of discernment, which began in the aftermath of the June 2015 massacre of nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Gunman Dylann Roof had shown a fondness for the Confederate flag.“These windows are not only inconsistent with our current mission to serve as a house of prayer for all people, but also a barrier to our important work on racial justice and racial reconciliation,” Episcopal leaders in Washington said in a written statement. https://cathedral.org/press-room/announcement-future-lee-jackson-windows/ “Their association with racial oppression, human subjugation and white supremacy does not belong in the sacred fabric of this Cathedral.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] September 15, 2017 at 11:14 am She is not alone in her views which you consider extreme. You have reinterpreted her views and comments so you can condemn her along with them. So sad. I was a member of Christ Church Cincinnati when it was not a cathedral church and when it would not allow the Bishop of Southern Ohio to treat it as such. It is with great hope that I have been following this discussion. I hope it ends with the removal of Confederate figures. The fact that many of them didn’t show up until the 1950’s says to me their role was to maintain the hope of returning to slavery or at least to maintain the fiction of “better than”. This is not the hope of eternal life – more like eternal death.

There seems little evidence of that inretaining memorials which seem to celebrate the slave holders and protectors thereof The Rev. Dr. David A. Ames says: Tags September 14, 2017 at 8:17 pm The Dean is badly informed about Bishop Polk I.am a former Air Force Chaplain. I regularly wore my uniform with a stole when I was doing anything in the field from.a funeral to Communion Service. I don’t know what the Bishop was doing but it Sounds like he was simply doing something similar. If that offends the Dean then she needs to oppose Chaplains in the Military. The Episcopal Church should not have a Bishop for the military. Really how can any Christian serve in the military? DO you see just how extreme her position is. She does not dislike Polk because he was a Confederate General. In the end she hates all military. Sadly she is hardly alone in the her extreme views.

My hope is that, when we set our eyes upon something which we (now) recognize as unacceptable, we can discuss the problems with it openly and promise to do better. If we ‘bury’ it or hide it, we stand to repeat it. It is in the open discussion of the problem which is where the healing takes place, not in its obliteration from our consciousness. Forgiveness happens only after we have recognized and openly acknowledge our errors. We have so much rich history to learn from – good and bad. To suppress either one is censorship and propaganda-izing of our culture’s history.

I’m positive there are in the Episcopal Church tens of thousands who feel that this cleansing of history is not just wrong but is a march of the lemmings headed over the cliff blindly and obediently. I was born at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, a Confederate General, also a prewar Governor of that state. My Great Aunt was murdered by two of her slaves. The court sentenced the slave to hang. Governor Bragg sent a special train with a commutation. Because, of this rewriting of Civil War history we ignore all the good in a person and assume to know the true heart of that Veteran. Lemmings are going after Thomas Jefferson. Abraham Lincoln will be next, because he would have kept slavery in several states to end the war. We are all human, and we all make mistakes.

When I read in ENS that our dean proposed removing two Confederate memorials from one of the stained glass windows I decided to go there on a week day and take a look for myself. Frankly I had to look at all the windows twice before I located them. When I saw them I thought to myself is this what Rev Gail is having such a hissy fit over? Two small corners of one of the windows that most would not even notice. I can only speak for myself but as an african american I have no problem whatsoever with those images of Lee and Meade. Or to the Polk plaque. Frankly I don’t know why the vestry is even bothering with an “active period of discernment” since it appears everyone, or mostly everyone in the vestry have already made up their minds. I have a real problem with this out of sigh out of mind “solution” to things that offend people. No Rev Ames, these memorials, at least most of them, should not go to a museum.

Remove them. In that R.E. Lee objected to memorials to the Civil War the good dean has his bolster of approval. I wish that the personalities of the Civil War era could be appreciated for more than their uniforms and the response to a call to arms. These men were far more complex and deserve more consideration than what has become a cartoonish image of them.Notwithstanding, Dean Greenwell has fallen into the game du jour which is “Find the Racist”. We’ve been around the board so many times I can’t count. Apologizing today, lamenting tomorrow, detracting, extracting, protesting, marching, blaming ad nauseum.Guess what? “Find the Racist” is easy when there are statues, plaques, and windows of the dead to play with. It’s harder when the game gets real.Every person reading this is exactly like Americans of the 1860s. Back then Northerners and Southerners all benefited from slavery and excused their blindness because to overturn slavery would be the ruination of homes, fortunes, and social stability. Not much has changed in 150 years. A single race of people was freed after the Civil War but we are now reliant on other races of people these days to undergird a stable and comfortable national life. Today, everyone from the good Dean down to the baby in the Nursery — and sadly, all of us — benefits from modern slavery. Many of our purchased goods are somehow touched by someone who is held against their will. These people create cheap objects like shoes, clothing, dried flowers, souvenirs, food, batteries, and more so we can enjoy a lifestyle that is affordable. China and the Pacific rim as well as Central America are the new Slave Quarters on our plantations. The “Quarters” aren’t out back anymore, but we still have them. These people who are living in servile misery are trapped. White, Black, Asian, Hispanic — all of us are the new masters.So, we have much in common with the statues, the windows, and the plaques that we’re piling up on the trash truck. People in the 1860s didn’t have an easy way to release each other from their ensnaring slave system short of personal ruination, and neither do we. (Robert E. Lee wanted an end to slavery but he didn’t see how national martial law was the solution, so he resisted it). The real question is “have we found the way out either?” No. But, junking the past sure helps us take our minds off of ourselves.Now, back to “Find the Racist”. How willing are the people of 2017 to end the servile misery that ensnares us? Anyone signing up for personal bankruptcy? Are you willing to pay double for most cheap products? How high are you willing to go to end today’s slavery? Are you really sure that your clothing, seafood, jewelry, and lithium batteries are 100% free from the touch of today’s enslaved? Are the people of China, the Dominican Republic, and the Pacific Islands so beneath us to not willingly ruin ourselves to change the system that entraps them? That’s what was being asked of those who lived in the 1860s. “Why did they not end it?!” Now, it’s our turn to answer up. In 100 years who will be called the racist? What will the people of 2117 do with the portraits of today’s Deans, Bishops, and notable laity who got along so well on the misery of others?

The state average dropped 8 cents last week and should slip even lower in the coming days.Florida drivers are paying an average of $2.45 per gallon at the pump. The state average has declined a total of 11 cents in the past 10 days.“It took almost the entire month, but gas prices are finally beginning to follow a more traditional trend of declining in January,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “With the holiday travel season in the rearview and temperatures turning colder, Americans are not driving as much as they did a month ago. The lower demand has allowed gasoline stocks to swell. Wholesale prices have reached a low that – if they hold – could drag the state average below $2.35 in the next 10 days.”Despite the recent decline, the state average remains 22 cents per gallon more than this time last year. The difference amounts to an additional $3 for a full 15-gallon tank of gas. That difference could soon begin to narrow as crude oil prices move more in line with last year’s levels.Friday, WTI crude settled at $54.19 per barrel. The daily settlement is $4/b less than the week before and only 50 cents more than this time last year.Regional PricesMost expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.59), Sebastian-Vero Beach ($2.53), Port St. Lucie ($2.51)Least expensive metro markets – Punta Gorda ($2.36), Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater ($2.38), Pensacola ($2.38)Fast Florida FactsFlorida has the 25th lowest state average in the U.S. ($2.45)Florida had the largest weekly discount of any other state in the U.S. (8 cents)Florida drivers are now paying the lowest gas prices of 2020Find Florida Gas PricesDaily gas price averages can be found at Gasprices.aaa.comState and metro averages can be found here You have entered an incorrect email address!

Billy Vunipola tries to keep ball in play with near disastrous result

first_imgFriday Sep 16, 2016 Billy Vunipola tries to keep ball in play with near disastrous result Here’s a funny moment from last weekend as Billy Vunipola attempted to keep a Lachlan Turner kick infield, but instead threw it metres forward and almost had it intercepted for what would have been a gift of a try courtesy of the Saracens number eight.Luckily the ball was dropped by Turner, who in fairness probably wasn’t expecting it there.Great effort and good athleticism by Vunipola, but he probably shouldn’t be trying that again anytime soon!credit: Original video by Premiership Rugby on page twoNot available in USA and NZADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Will English charities need to register in Scotland?

Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Carol said: “Charities in England and Wales, whilst they will be following the Charities Bill in England and Wales with interest, may not have realised that a draft Charities Bill has been published in Scotland. They may think the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Bill will not affect them, but this Bill may have repercussions for charities in England that operate in any way in Scotland. “The major concern is that some charities may not realise that even small levels of activity in Scotland mean they will have to register with OSCR. Our advice is to keep up to date with developments in the Scottish Bill and for charities to make sure they comply.” The Scottish Executive’s consultation period on the Bill will come to a close on 25 August 2004. Business adviser and charities specialist Baker Tilly is warning charities in England and Wales that they may need to register with an additional regulatory body as the progress of the draft Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Bill continues. The registration would apply to all charities if they undertake any fundraising or profile raising activities in Scotland, even if this is just by way of a press release being used in a Scottish newspaper. Carol Sellwood, Head of Charities and Education at Baker Tilly, is warning charities who fall into this category that they will need to register with the newly formed Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).

No more Hiroshimas and Nagasakis!

first_imgAugust 6 and 9, 1945, went down in history as days of infamy for U.S. imperialism — and days of catastrophe for the people of Japan.At 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 6, the U.S. bomber Enola Gay dropped a four-ton uranium bomb on Hiroshima, and then followed that horrific act by unleashing a plutonium bomb on Nagasaki three days later.Both cities became infernos. People were incinerated instantly. Thousands died agonizing deaths soon afterwards. By the end of that year, 250,000 people had died. In subsequent years, many people died from radiation-related illnesses.Among those who died were 22,000 Koreans, who were conscripted as forced laborers by Japanese imperialism during World War II, along with Chinese workers.Sixty percent of Hiroshima was destroyed. Residential areas bore the brunt of the impact as only four of the 30 targets were military. This was in line with U.S. war policy of bombing Japanese civilian populations. Nagasaki was flattened.As World War II was ending, Washington dropped the bombs as a warning to the socialist Soviet Union and to assert U.S. hegemony in Asia and around the globe. This imperialist government showed the world that it had developed and would use nuclear weapons against civilian populations.The United States is the only country to have ever used nuclear bombs in warfare. No leading figure in any administration has ever apologized or shown remorse for having inflicted such monumental destruction and loss of human life on the Japanese people.This includes President Barack Obama, who visited the Hiroshima Memorial Park in late May. Although he was the first sitting U.S. president to visit the city, Obama offered no apology for the government’s decision to bomb the two Japanese cities and the consequent devastation.Atomic bomb survivors and Japan’s peace movement insist Washington take responsibility for its deplorable actions at the end of the war — and remove U.S. troops and bases from their country. The people of Okinawa have militantly opposed the presence of U.S. bases since they were erected on their island.The legacy of Hiroshima is pacifism. “Never again” is inscribed on the war memorial. On the 71st anniversary of the bombings this year, people came from all over Japan to show respect to those who died and demonstrate their desire for peace.The post-war Japanese Constitution, which the U.S. imposed, renounced war and military engagement abroad. Since then, however, Japan has built up its military and supported U.S. interventions in Korea and Vietnam.Japan’s current right-wing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has ordered more military spending, ended a ban on arms exports and passed security laws that allow sending troops abroad. He has done this despite opposition from the majority of the population and organized protests by bomb survivors and anti-war, anti-nuclear organizations.Abe’s actions have been urged by Washington, which seeks Japanese military expansion in East Asia, in concert with the U.S. military build-up in the region — with all forces confronting China and north Korea. Behind the diplomatic posturing of the Obama administration, that is the real goal of the U.S. “pivot to Asia.”Clearly, U.S. militarism is expanding. The never-ending war drive is intrinsic to capitalism; the U.S. is compelled to seek global, strategic, military, economic and political domination.Actions speak louder than wordsOf his trip to Hiroshima, Obama said that it reaffirmed “our vision of a world without nuclear weapons.” Yet, can the U.S.government be believed about this “goal”?The Obama administration has committed $1 trillion to upgrade and build “nuclear modernizations” of weapons, bombers, missiles and submarines over the next 30 years.The Pentagon publicly admits to having 4,571 nuclear warheads. Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington would hasten dismantling retired nuclear warheads by 20 percent. The number of weapons dismantled annually has dwindled, however, with only 109 cut last year. (New York Times, May 27)The Guardian newspaper says the current administration has decreased the nuclear weapons stockpile less than “any president since the end of the cold war.” (May 27) Congressional right-wing war hawks share responsibility for that, as they have vociferously opposed weapons reduction.The Obama administration claims it seeks a world without nuclear weapons. If that were true, it should cancel the $1 trillion allocation for “nuclear modernization” and disarm immediately. It should redirect the funds to jobs, health care, education, housing and food programs here and pay reparations to refugees and other victims of U.S.-led wars and occupations abroad.Nuclear war threatens human life on earth. The global stockpile is equivalent to 150,000 times the potency of the bombs dropped on Japan. On the anniversary of the worst bombing in history, anti-imperialist forces worldwide must renew the push for nuclear disarmament, especially of the U.S. war machine — to stay Washington’s hand so there is never another nuclear catastrophe.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Community to take part in Bible marathon

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Community to take part in Bible marathon Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Email the author “Contrary to what President Obama said, we are a Christian nation. We believe in ‘one nation under God’ and we are privileged be able to practice our beliefs freely and exercise them in a peaceful way.”Walker said Christians believe that God’s word is fruitful and needs to be heard.“God’s word may not be the solution but it is a help for the problems that we suffer in our economy and the ills of our society,” he said. “Even when God’s word is being read and there is no one to listen, the time is especially meaning for the reader. When it’s just you and God’s word and God’s creations around you, it is a special time that can’t be described. Everyone who has read during the Bible Reading Marathon has said that it is a very special and meaningful time for them personally.” Linda Adams, Salem-Troy Baptist Association administrative assistant, said everyone is invited to attend the opening of the Bible Reading Marathon on Sunday, May 3. “We have several churches that are planning to attend the opening as their Sunday night service and several that plan to come on Wednesday night to either read or listen,” Adams said. “This is our third Bible Reading Marathon but it’s the 20th year for the Bible Reading Marathon at our nation’s capitol building.” Published 7:55 pm Wednesday, April 15, 2009 The Salem-Troy Baptist Association invites the people of God to participate in the Bible Reading Marathon, which begins on Sunday, May 3 and concludes on Thursday, May 7, the National Day of Prayer.The event will begin at 5 p.m. May 3 at the Gazebo on the square in downtown Troy with special music by the Sheppard and Wilkerson families. The Bible Reading Marathon will begin at 6 p.m. with Genesis 1:1.Averyt Walker, director of mission Salem-Troy Baptist Association, said his experience has been that the Bible Reading Marathon is a special time personally for those who read. “According to the scripture God says, ‘When my word goes forth, it will not return unto me void,” Walker said. “As Christians we believe that it is important to read the world of God aloud, not just for us as individuals, but for our nation.

Then we started with the Gospel of Matthew and continued reading the New Testament until the noon hour on Thursday. ““We will conclude the 2009 Bible Reading Marathon at noon on Thursday, May 7, with the National Day of Prayer ceremony that includes words of encouragement and prayer.”To reserve a time to read, call 566-1538 or e-mail [email protected] or stop by the Salem-Troy Baptist Association office at 317 Ray Ave. in Troy. By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content The Bible Reading Marathon is an annual event of the International Bible Reading Association.The Salem-Troy Baptist Association takes the lead in hosting the event but churches, organizations and other groups and individuals from around the area participate. “We are scheduling reading times now and encourage those who wish to participate to call and reserve a time,” Adams said. “Readings are 15 minutes in length and you can read one time or several times and there is no minimum age limit. Last year, we had a reader who was either seven or eight years old. We want anyone who wants to read to be a part of this very special event.”Adams said the hardest times to fill are the hours between midnight and 5 a.m.“The first year, we had Troy University students who reserved a large block of time between those hours,” she said. “They came as a group and stayed together.” Some churches are reserving a block of time, as are several organizations.
