McLean added: “I have been lucky to captain England a couple of times so I have the experience, but even so it is a massive difference from being vice captain. Catherine did an amazing job captaining her country, it was an honour to be her vice, and I am sure I will be seeking her advice throughout the season.“This is a new start, however, a new four year cycle to the next world cup, and a lot of new players have come in so I am extremely excited for them to show their potential and I will certainly do my best to support them as well as my more established teammates.“I can’t wait for the Six Nations to kick off. Wales is always a tough game and it will be even tougher since we are in Wales so as a side we need to ensure we build on our world cup performances and set up a good marker for ourselves.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England Head Coach Gary Street added: “For a young player Katy has a wealth of experience behind her and she is an incredibly influential tactician on the pitch. When she’s previously stood in as captain she has led the team tremendously well and certainly her vice captain experience puts her in good stead.” Darlington Mowden Park Sharks fly half Katy McLean has been named as the new captain of the England Women’s team.McLean, who has 38 caps, takes over the captaincy armband from Catherine Spencer who stepped down last week.The 25-year-old was vice captain of England in 2009 and 2010 and stepped up to skipper England during the recent Women’s Rugby World Cup when Spencer was rested.“It’s a massive honour to be England captain, a dream I have had since I started playing,” said McLean, who lives in Gateshead and is studying to become a teacher. “There are so many natural leaders in our squad that it makes it even harder to believe they have asked me.”McLean won’t have to wait long to lead her side on international duty with the RBS 6 Nations just around the corner. England kick off their campaign as well as their defence of their grand slam crown on February 6th away against Wales.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Was rugby always your top sport?I played football until I went to comprehensive school, but it was a bit soft for my liking!Is openside your favourite position?Yes. I get more into the game at openside, make more tackles and win more turnovers.Who’s had the biggest influence on you?Dale McIntosh. I started working with him when I was 15 and I still do now. He coached me through Cardiff Blues’ age grades and with Wales U18.You’ve had plenty of game time with Cardiff RFC this season – have you learned a lot?It has been really great. All I want to do is play.Who were your boyhood rugby heroes? Martyn Williams lives locally to me so he was a big hero of mine. Michael Owen too – I admire him because he is really skilful and he was my Wales U18 coach. Neil Jenkins is my cousin and we always have a chat when we see each other.Do you enjoy being captain of Wales U20?It’s a big honour to be asked to lead your country. I captained the U18s two years ago too.What is your next aim?I hope to get a bit of game time for the Blues before the end of this season and even more next season.You go out with the singer, Sophie Evans…We have been together about a year and I can see her more often now she’s back from London.RW Verdict: This Blues product has starred for the Wales age groups and is working hard to earn his regional colours.
TAGS: HighlightSamoa This was a game of breathtaking physicality, but South Africa merely rode it out and played smart rugby win this contest, cranking up the pressure in the second half. There were genuine moments of brilliance too, with both full-backs Willie Le Roux and Tim Nanai-Williams playing wonderful, evasive rugby, while big forwards like Schalk Burger and Eben Etzebeth slogged forward. A hat-trick for JP Pietersen will live long in his memory – particularly his long-range interception – and the lineout was a real weapon.So when Schalk Brits rode a driving maul all the way to the line for South Africa’s fourth try, there was a clear sense of relief in the ground. After that the pressure was off and Pietersen scored his third with ease and Habana closed out the contest with a long-range effort. Six tries is a handsome return for a good day’s work against a team of Samoa’s strength.This was calculated stuff from the Springboks and they will go into their game against Scotland with renewed energy.Fine showing: Tim Nanai-Williams kept the Boks guessingWHAT’S HOTHeads-up stuff from the big men – When Fourie du Preez is in this mood, rhythmically pushing South Africa on, they play well. But the Springboks weren’t just ploughing into the Samoans. After being hit so hard by TJ Ioane that he coughed up the ball – and nearly a lung too, by the look of the tackle – Schalk Burger decided the change tactic. He kept running at Ioane, who was thumping into contact all game, but drew him and passed. It was a simple change, but meant another runner could attack at a better angle outside Ioane’s shoulder. The link man is a role he performs well for the Stormers.Samoan flair – Tim Nanai-Williams may not be the biggest of blokes – particularly in a team of monsters like Samoa – but he is darned evasive. His nimble running and keenness to offload sparked the Samoans. And when he did, others wanted to join in with offloads of their own. When South Africa followed suit in the second half, with some sweet play from Etzebeth, de Villiers and Le Roux a standout.Brothers in arms – George Pisi came on in minute 66, joining his brothers Ken and Tusi to become the first trio of brothers to be on the field for a World Cup game. A proud day indeed.Springboks lineouts – They looked secure on their ball, threatened the Samoans on theirs, and right at the start of the game they ploughed deep into Samoa’s territory thanks to a colossal driving maul. It was a part of their set-piece that functioned well. However…Real strength: The South African maulWHAT’S NOTBok scrums – You cannot bank on the Boks scrum at the moment. They didn’t get embarrassed, but they never looked settled either. To be one of the key contenders in this World Cup, a stable platform is a minimum requirement. With the Test experience of some of their starters, they really should be solid.Play-acting – Okay, so a few sly digs at the bottom of a ruck caused a minor moment of unpleasantness (handbags, we usually call it), but on the other side of it was the theatrical fall of Alesana Tuilagi, who flopped to the ground after being pulled back by JP Pietersen. He then got up and petulantly shoved his opposite man. He didn’t have to go down. If anything a man of his size going down looks silly anyway, but he could have got the penalty anyway.Pitch invasions – A pumped-up Bok fan broke onto the pitch, came to the side of a ruck during play and was pulled away by Vavao Afemai just as Duane Vermeulen tried to grab him as well. The stewards hauled him off. It was an embarrassing moment.

Date of birth 18 February 1997 Position Wing Club Glasgow WarriorsHow did you get involved in rugby? I didn’t start until I was 14. I played football and athletics before that. I enjoyed being part of a team so went along to my local rugby club, Currie, with my mates.Have you always played wing? I was big and fast and, while a lot of my mates played from minis, I was a latecomer. If I’d started rugby when I was younger I still think I’d be in the same position. I like wing.What athletic disciplines did you do? I started off sprinting, then did discus and shot put. I used to train ten times a week and when I was 16 I had to decide to do one sport if I was to take it to the next level.I opted for rugby. I got to a high level with shot put – I was fourth in the UK – but my heart wasn’t in it. I liked the team side of things.You went to your first U20 World Cup aged 18… Yes, I was sitting my exams at the World Cup in Italy, which was pretty unusual. Playing at that level was good exposure. I played last year in Manchester and made my third one in Georgia. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS You’ve also played for Scotland Sevens… It’s another experience I can draw lots of positives from. The skill levels are higher in sevens and there’s a lot of space. It’s a good way to test yourself.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREWhy did you join Harlequins? I was looking for a new challenge and got an academy contract.I had an awesome couple of years, getting exposure (on loan) in the Championship and National One.Now you’re at Glasgow… It’s a fantastic club. I’ve come because I want to break into the first team and get appearances under my belt. But I’m not too sure how the season will look. I could possibly be involved with the sevens. Find out more about Glasgow Warriors’ 2017 summer signing Robbie Nairn In the clear: Robbie Nairn breaks at the 2016 U20 World Cup.

To a tee: Cai Evans takes a kick at goal for Wales U18. Photo: Huw Evans Agency An exclusive interview with rising star Cai Evans Date of birth 23 June 1999 Born Penarth Region Ospreys Country Wales Position Fly-halfHow did you get involved in rugby? I rocked up at my local club, Cowbridge, when I was six and was there until I was 16. My parents always encouraged me to try different sports so I played football, tennis and cricket too, but rugby became a natural choice.What positions have you played? I started on the wing, moved infield and ended up at outside-half when I was 13. It’s my favourite position. You get lots of touches and have the ability to run, pass and kick. I like to mix up my game.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREWhat are your strengths? I like the role of playmaker, the distribution aspect, and I want to remain an attacking threat.Which players do you enjoy watching? Dan Carter and Rhys Priestland. They have natural attacking flair. And Beauden Barrett – he has the confidence to try different things and remains accurate.Ieuan Evans is your dad – does that add pressure? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I don’t feel it. There could be expectation but I tend to stay away from that. I play how I play. He might give me advice now and then but it’s what any father would do.Talk us through your representative honours… I started off with Cardiff Blues and had a camp with Wales U16, but I didn’t make the final squad. There were three people in my position at the Blues and when I didn’t make the cut I moved to Ospreys U18. My consistency got better and I was given the opportunity to be involved in the national U18 team, which has been a great experience.Have the setbacks helped? It’s made me stronger mentally and kept my determination at a good level. I was always critical of my performances, striving to be a better player.What are your goals this season? To continue to play with Bridgend in the Premiership and hopefully to get some involvement regionally with the Ospreys A team and the U20s. RW Verdict: Mature beyond his years, Evans is showing huge promise as he combines rugby with an accounting and finance degree at Swansea University. He’s impressed for Wales U18 and will benefit from game time at Bridgend.This article first appeared in the January 2018 issue of Rugby World. TAGS: Ospreys
LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jacob Whitehead reflects on the North v South match and Ian Foster’s first All Blacks selection He made it look so easy – and it’s not the first time he’s scored a key game winner. Indeed, it could be argued that he sent the Super Rugby Aotearoa title the Crusaders’ way – scoring the key try against second-place Blues to win their only match-up.He’d had a brilliant year in Super Rugby, for sure, but international rugby is a different beast – and make no mistake, the North v South match was of that ilk. So much of the New Zealand dynamic is about the soaking up of pressure, before adapting to dominate the big moments. Jordan did this, struggling early against Caleb Clarke before making a couple of brilliant cover tackles, scoring an opportunistic first try and a velvet-smooth second. Expect to see him somewhere in the All Blacks back three for years to come.Next All Blacks back row beginning to take shape Kieran Read’s retirement has left quite some gap to fill in the New Zealand back row, but judging by recent performances the All Blacks shouldn’t miss him too much…You can maybe measure the quality of a squad by the calibre of player missing out – and the omission of Tom Christie and Tom Sanders is emblematic of this. The Crusaders pair were brilliant on Saturday, with Christie emulating Neil Back’s graft and Sanders’s ball-carrying notably similar to CJ Stander. Christie in particular looks as if he’ll snap at captain Sam Cane’s heels over the next World Cup cycle.What makes the New Zealand loose forwards so hard to predict is Ardie Savea’s versatility – he is able to cover all three back-row spots. The most likely group would see Savea and Cane on the flanks, with the eight spot seemingly boiling down to a battle between Blues pair Hoskins Sotutu and Akira Ioane.Ioane’s redemptive tale after struggling with form is an inspiring one, but Sotutu looks to be the favourite right now. A breakout star of Super Rugby Aotearoa, his work-rate on Saturday was exceptional, while his offload for Smith’s score was the ‘wow’ moment of the game – until Jordan intervened.Yet the All Blacks could yet field Savea at No 8 and pick the in-form but raw Shannon Frizell on the blindside, while Foster clearly rates surprise selection Cullen Grace, a 20-year old flanker who could force his way into the reckoning.Rieko goes well at 13Rieko Ioane sometimes gets a hard time in New Zealand and he’s been told by numerous pundits that he’s not an international centre, but he laid quite the marker at the weekend.TJ Perenara’s Instagram story captured this – ‘He’s not a centre they said’, followed by a string of laughing emojis, after the Blues flyer scored an excellent brace of tries. One second-half-offload was reminiscent of Sonny Bill Williams.Of course, Ioane actually began his career as a centre at schoolboy level, so what about for the All Blacks?The competition on the wing is ridiculous – George Bridge, Sevu Reece, Will Jordan, Caleb Clarke – but with the mulletless Jack Goodhue recently shifted to inside-centre, the All Blacks midfield options look clearer. Rieko at 13 and a straight shootout between Lienert-Brown and Goodhue for the spot at second five-eighth… now what a back-line that could be.Brad Weber is the unluckiest man in world rugbyThe scrum-half was a brilliant general for the South, outshining Perenara until the Hurricanes man was replaced by Aaron Smith on the hour mark. His Chiefs team struggled in Super Rugby this year, but Weber was a standout – and he has flourished whenever he’s had a chance for the All Blacks.Breaking Brad: Weber makes a burst for the South (Getty Images)The issue is that those opportunities seem few and far between with Perenara and Smith ahead of him – both in the top handful of scrum-halves worldwide.Weber, 29, could be approaching a half-century of caps for most other top rugby nations – his paltry five for the All Blacks does not reflect his quality. It will be interesting to see if Foster gives him a chance in the year to come. On the other hand, the South’s back-line generally didn’t fire as much and he missed a key tackle on Hoskins Sotutu in the run-up to Aaron Smith’s try.What have we learnt here? It looks as if Mo’unga has probably shown enough to hang onto the first five-eighth jersey, unless Foster decides to diverge drastically from the World Cup strategy.Air Jordan stakes his claim –Jordan saves his team from defeat… rises highest to score the buzzer-beater… an incredible pressure play… This is not a direct quote from Netflix’s The Last Dance. It would be absurd to compare Michael Jordan to Will Jordan, but the latter undoubtably pulled off a Jordan moment in the final throes of the inter-island match-up.Josh Ioane’s kick dropped perfectly on Mitchell Hunt’s head, leaving the Highlander’s man static against the onrushing Jordan, who soared highest to gently pluck the ball out of the air.

North v South: Five things we learnt It’s been an exciting few days for New Zealand rugby, with the return of the North v South game, the announcement of Ian Foster’s first All Blacks squad and, most importantly, the sheer quality of rugby on offer.The South triumphed 38-35 thanks to a last-gasp winner – probably a fair result after the North’s controversial go-ahead score ten minutes before. There were mauled tries, back-line moves galore, opportunistic scores and aerial glory – the tone set from Caleb Clarke’s 40m break straight from kick-off.Due South: Will Jordan scores the match-winning try (Getty Images)Ian Foster’s team is in more of a transitional moment than the one Steve Hansen inherited nine years ago – so what have we learnt from Saturday’s grudge match and the squad announced early on Sunday morning?Barrett v Mo’unga: The battle continues The battle for the New Zealand fly-half jersey between Beauden Barrett and Richie Mo’unga continues. Barrett had possibly the better overall game as North faced South – setting up Rieko Ioane in the game’s opening minutes, unparalleled in broken field – but Mo’unga fans may argue that Barrett’s strengths can still be utilised at 15.Mo’unga was the top scorer in Super Rugby Aotearoa and not only made the Team of the Tournament but was named NZ Player of the Season – showing flashes of that brilliance on Saturday as he flicked a brilliant try-scoring pass to Tyrel Lomax in the second half.

Esta foto, tomada al día siguiente de que azotara el huracán, muestra el estado en que quedó la autopista. La zona tiene por delante años de reconstrucción y las congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal ya participan de lleno en ese empeño. Foto de la oficina del gobernador Christ Christie.[Episcopal News Service] Cuando el huracán Sandy azotó la costa oriental de Estados Unidos hace seis meses, lo que en inglés llamarón Frankenstorm [una tormenta monstruosa] le dio a algunos episcopales de Nueva Jersey nuevas formas de entender las experiencias bíblicas del exilio y la Pascua.El contingente de invierno de la capilla de Santa Isabel del Mar [St. Elizabeth’s Chapel-by-the-Sea] en Ortley Beach se encuentra en el exilio. En la noche del 29 de octubre de 2012, Sandy arrancó la capilla de temporada de su atracadero cerca de la playa y, arrastrándola a través de la península de Barnegat, la lanzó a la bahía. Los miembros de esta congregación están asistiendo al culto dominical en la iglesia bautista de East Dover en tierra firme.Es un bonito edificio y la congregación y el pastor han sido muy acogedores, dijo el guardián mayor Dennis Bellars. Después de que encontraran la silla del obispo en las ruinas de Ortley Beach, la congregación [de la iglesia bautista] permitió a los miembros de Santa Isabel que la guardaran en el santuario.No obstante, dijo Bellars, “no es nuestra casa”.A unos 64 kilómetros al sur, en Beach Haven, casi al final de Long Beach Island, la iglesia episcopal de los Santos Inocentes [Holy Innocents Episcopal Church] se levanta apenas a una corta cuadra del Atlántico, [sitio] en que la calle Pearl constituye su frontera norte. Sandy rompió la barrera de dunas de la calle Pearl y “el agua del mar inundó la calle Pearl por un par de mareas”, según dijo el Rdo. Frank Crumbaugh, rector de los Santos Inocentes.Las casas que estaban en el lado norte de la calle Pearl se inundaron, pero el agua no subió de la acera en el lado sur donde están la iglesia y la rectoría, explicó él.“Esa es una convincente señal de protección”, dijo Crumbaugh a Episcopal News Service. “Cuando uno ve eso, entiende lo que significa la ‘Pascua’ [del Éxodo] de una manera nueva”.Sin embargo, para Crumbaugh resulta claro que “no fuimos preservados para celebrar nuestra buena fortuna; fuimos preservados para ayudar a los que no lo fueron y eso ha sido una señal convincente en Beach Haven”.Y esa ha sido la otra lección bíblica que dejó la secuela de Sandy: las iglesias tienen un papel [que desempeñar] en sus comunidades basado en la Escritura.“Todo el mundo sabe lo que hemos sufrido y lo que hemos perdido, y todo el mundo sigue sintiendo esas pérdidas y, al mismo tiempo, somos como Pablo afirmó Crumbaugh, “como castigados, más no muertos; como moribundos, pero he aquí vivimos”.Lo mismo podía decirse en Tuckerton, en tierra firme a unas 10 millas de Beach Haven, del otro lado de la bahía y en el circunvecino municipio de Little Egg Harbor.“En verdad estoy haciendo mi mayor esfuerzo para que esta congregación sea la Iglesia, que es realmente el cuerpo de Cristo en relación los unos con los otros y con el mundo de una manera que, dicho con optimismo, es algo diferente de una institución secular de socorro”, dijo la Rda. Martha McKee, vicaria de la iglesia del Espíritu Santo [Church of the Holy Spirit] en Tuckerton. “Estamos trabajando arduamente para apoyar a la gente que necesita ayuda y caminando con ellos a través de este proceso, pero también apoyando a los que ayudan a otros”.Beach Haven, Nueva Jersey, se muestra inundada poco después de que el huracán Sandy arrojara un muro de agua en este pueblo de Long Beach Island. Foto de LBI.net.Muchísimas personas necesitan ayuda. El cuadro estadístico del paso de Sandy a través de Nueva Jersey es pavoroso. El Departamento de Asuntos Comunitarios de Nueva Jersey dice que Sandy afectó o destruyó 246.000 unidades de vivienda en el estado. Más de 23.000 de esas viviendas estaban en el condado de Ocean, cuya frontera oriental bordea el Atlántico y que, junto con el condado de Monmouth, al norte y también en la costa, sufrieron el peor embate de la tormenta.Casi todas las 731 casas de Ortley Beach sufrieron daños graves o moderados, según el Departamento de Asuntos Comunitarios de Nueva Jersey. El sesenta y dos por ciento de las 795 viviendas de Beach Haven resultaron severamente dañadas, según [informa] el estado. La tormenta afectó los hogares de aproximadamente 59 feligreses de los Santos Inocentes y las pérdidas en seis casas fueron totales, dijo Crumbaugh. Ocho familias resultaron desplazadas de alguna manera.Y en Tuckerton, el estado dice que el 30 por ciento de las 1.316 casas del lugar presentaban daños graves o moderados, mientras el 90 por ciento de las 1.801 viviendas del vecino Little Egg Harbor enfrentaron el mismo destino. Según dijo McKee, el 20 por ciento de los hogares de los miembros del Espíritu Santo se perdieron del todo o sufrieron daños graves. Esa cifra se traduce en aproximadamente 30 familias en una iglesia cuya asistencia dominical promedio es de 75 personas, añadió ella.Cada congregación se enfrenta o se enfrentará con la tarea de discernir qué papel está siendo llamada a asumir en la vida de la comunidad que la rodea después de Sandy. En tanto que los miembros de Santa Isabel esperan regresar a su salón de reuniones en cuestión de cuatro a seis semanas para sus oficios de verano, enfrentan un problema mayor en lo que respecta a la reconstrucción de su iglesia.El seguro cubrirá los costos de reconstrucción de un edificio del mismo tamaño hecho de los mismos materiales, dijo Bellars, pero los miembros tienen muchas ideas más allá de esos criterios básicos.Keith Adams, coordinador de recuperación de desastres de la Diócesis de Nueva Jersey, auspiciará en breve una sesión de estrategia para los miembros de Santa Isabel.Algunos de los miembros, dijo Adams, ya han dicho que si Dios se llevó la iglesia y les dejó con un terreno limpio “luego, Dios quiere que hagamos algo; nos está dando una oportunidad”.Parte de la oportunidad se centra en saber que, antes de Sandy, la congregación había recibido el permiso de la diócesis para pasar de ser una capilla de temporada a convertirse en una iglesia que funcionara todo el año.Según dijo Adams, la sesión de estrategia comenzará por abordar la cuestión no sólo de cómo reanudar los oficios en el sitio, sino también “de qué manera uno puede servirle ahora a sus vecinos que fueron afectados y a la comunidad en general, porque deben ser y desean ser un símbolo de la comunidad y quieren desempeñar un papel en la manera en que esa comunidad va a regresar como un todo y cómo va a seguir adelante”.Algunos miembros, explicó Adams, quieren construir una réplica de la iglesia [que antes existía], mientras otros han sugerido construir un edificio de varias plantas que les permita ofrece toda una serie de servicios sociales. Él sospecha que, al final, la forma y la misión de Santa Isabel estarán a medio camino entre esos dos polos “y va a ser para ellos un magnífico vivero para levantar una congregación en su entorno”.Entre tanto, en Beach Haven y Tuckerton, los episcopales siguen ayudando a otros al tiempo que se esfuerzan en rehacer sus propias vidas juntos.Muchos propietarios de casas en Beach Haven son personas mayores que trabajaron todas sus vidas, compraron una casa de playa en una etapa temprana que alquilaban la mayor parte de cada verano, de manera que “las visitas de verano les pagaron la casa”, dijo Crumbaugh. Finalmente, los dueños se jubilaron, vendieron sus casas en el norte de [Nueva] Jersey o en Pensilvania, climatizaron la casa de Beach Haven para el invierno y se mudaron para “ocupar físicamente su más importante propiedad.“El huracán Sandy barrió un montón de cuentas bancarias”, agregó él.Crumbaugh dijo que su parroquia ha descubierto un llamado a “amar y apoyar” a los residentes mientras navegan en lo que a veces puede ser el gigantesco papeleo de la FEMA y de los seguros.Acompañando esa realidad está la frustrante y “difícil realidad” de que las compañías de seguro deben responder tanto a sus accionistas como a los suscriptores de sus pólizas. La opinión común de que cuando uno compra un seguro tiene alguna protección y defensa de parte de la compañía de seguros no es verdad, agregó Crumbaugh.A esa realidad se añade el hecho de que los mapas de asesoramiento sobre elevación de inundaciones recientemente publicados por la FEMA exigirán que algunos propietarios eleven sus casas hasta poco más de 4 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Tal obra costará decenas de miles de dólares y las elevaciones exactas aún no quedarán definitivamente establecidas hasta dentro de un año o más. Algunas personas pueden verse obligadas a vender su propiedad en lo que bien puede ser un mercado muy difícil.Adams dijo que su oficina ha relacionado a los Santos Inocentes con los Servicios Legales de Nueva Jersey y que la parroquia dirige un grupo de apoyo para “conectar a estas personas con algún buen servicio legal”.“Estar con las personas mientras toman algunas decisiones difíciles y se esfuerzan en imaginar cuál ha de ser su próxima movida ha sido un privilegio”, subrayó Crumbaugh. “Es una ardua tarea para los que los quieren, pero es por eso que estamos aquí”. El frustrante proceso de recuperación “nos brinda otra oportunidad como iglesia, porque debemos abordar también esas necesidades emocionales y espirituales”, dijo Adams.Crumbaugh, McKee y Adams coincidieron en que ellos saben que las iglesias pueden ser lugares para que las personas “sencillamente vengan y se reúnan con otras y compartan el mismo tipo de dificultades; para estar en un ambiente donde resulte seguro hablar acerca de esas dificultades”, según dijo Adams, y luego tienes las iglesias que les ayudan a conseguir ayuda.Los resultados de la marejada ciclónica del huracán Sandy pueden verse en un inundado Tuckerton, Nueva Jersey, Foto del Servicio de Guardacostas de EE.UU.La parroquia de Tuckerton, que antes de Sandy ayudaba a administrar dos bancos de alimentos con otras iglesias locales y que ofrecía gratuitamente una comida comunitaria mensual que atraía a 80 o 100 personas, ha continuado fortaleciendo el problema de la alimentación en su ministerio. Otras iglesias episcopales han ayudado con el suministro de alimentos para la comida mensual. La iglesia episcopal de la Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Moorestown asumió la comida comunitaria al día siguiente de Navidad, dijo McKee, y la semana pasada su grupo de jóvenes cocinó una comida en los Santos Inocentes. En el congelador ya está lista la comida del próximo mes.[La congregación del] Espíritu Santo también ofreció una noche de familia con la ayuda de Esperanza y Restauración de Nueva Jersey [New Jersey Hope and Healing] que incluía una cena, actividades para niños y una plática con los padres sobre cómo ayudar a los niños pequeños a lidiar con el desastre.Además, la Iglesia ve parte de su ministerio después de Sandy en alimentar a los muchos voluntarios que han venido a la zona a ayudar en las tareas de recuperación.Según el clima se hace más tibio y más personas se ocupan por sí mismas de la reconstrucción de sus propias casas, McKee predice que la gente empezará a buscar guarderías infantiles y “diversión a bajo costo”. La iglesia planea tener más de estas comidas en el futuro y pronto espera ofrecer noches con películas y cenas.“Creo que la escuela bíblica de vacaciones será muy exitosa este verano por esa misma razón”, agregó.Cualquiera que sea la labor “lo más importante que podemos decir”, afirmó McKee, es que “la Iglesia va a estar aquí trabajando con usted”.El mensaje es: “Dios está andando con nosotros y nosotros andamos con ellos y estamos aquí para quedarnos y lo que hacemos evolucionará según evolucionen las necesidades”.Adams afirmó que la evolución y el discernimiento es parte continua de esta labor que él llama “un proceso en el cual transformamos una tragedia en una oportunidad” para discernir qué talentos y recursos puede aportar cada congregación para ser relevante en el servicio a sus comunidades no sólo después de los desastres, sino todos los días.O, en otras palabras, dijo Adams, “poder salir a su comunidad y ver el rostro de Dios en otras personas y hacerles que vean el rostro de Dios en nosotros”.– La Rda.

“Part of the mission of the church is to critique the fundamental basis of self-centredness,” said the Rev. Dr. Christopher Duraisingh. Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] An eminent South Indian theologian on July 3 challenged Anglicans and Lutherans to “de-centre” themselves and their churches so that they can truly serve the world.“Part of the mission of the church is to critique the fundamental basis of self-centredness,” said the Rev. Dr. Christopher Duraisingh, who gave the keynote speech at the first day of the Joint Assembly of the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), at the Ottawa Convention Centre.The experiences of marginalization, including those experienced by Canada’s First Nations people, “is a consequence of that culture, that greed borne out of self-centred selves,” said Duraisingh.Duraisingh, who is professor at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass., said the Joint Assembly was one example of how “by bringing two diverse groups of people together…the wisdom of God in its rich diversity will be made known to the world.”Touching on the theme of mission, Duraisingh urged about 600 Anglicans and Lutherans gathered here to revisit the fundamental reason for being a church in the world. Mission is the church’s raison d’être or reason for existence, he said; it is not simply a function of the church. “Start with a mission and the church will be found,” said Duraisingh.He urged the assembly to think of the theme Together for the Love of the World, not as an invitation “to grow bigger and better” and not as a project, but as “a major calling to nurture and nourish an alternative consciousness,” one that would involve, like Jesus, “a solidarity plunge into the anguish, hopes and aspirations of his people.”Jesus’ baptism was “not for the forgiveness of sin…not sin management,” but rather “an identification with the world, with the hopes and aspirations of the poor and the oppressed,” said Duraisingh.Reacting to Duraisingh’s reflections, ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson said the theologian’s worlds were “a pacemaker jolt to the heart.” She said that Duraisingh interpreted the assembly’s theme “in ways that I haven’t even imagined.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Tags An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Canada Joint Assembly, Rector Hopkinsville, KY Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Submit an Event Listing Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Curate Diocese of Nebraska In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Tampa, FL Press Release Service Rector Knoxville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Featured Jobs & Calls Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID By ENS staffPosted Jul 29, 2013 Green paint splashed by a vandal some time on the afternoon of July 29 is visible on parts of the organ in Washington National Cathedral’s Bethlehem Chapel. Photo: Washington National CathedralEditors’ note: Updated at 9:30 a.m. EDT July 30 to add details about suspect.[Episcopal News Service] One or more people splashed green paint the afternoon of July 29 in Washington National Cathedral’s historic Bethlehem Chapel.The paint was still wet when staff discovered it on the chapel’s organ console and casework, leaving officials to believe the vandalism had occurred just recently, according to the cathedral. Cathedral officials contacted D.C. Metropolitan Police immediately and closed the chapel.When paint also was found in the Children’s Chapel on the nave (main) level of the cathedral, the cathedral closed to the public for the duration of the investigation.Bethlehem Chapel, where the vandalism occurred in the cathedral’s lower level, is the oldest portion of the cathedral, completed in 1912. It was the site of burial rites for President Woodrow Wilson in 1924 and the original location of his tomb for more than three decades before he was interred permanently in a memorial bay bearing his name on the cathedral’s nave level.DC Police later on July 29 said that officers arrested Jiamei Tian, 58, at the cathedral. The woman, whom police said had no known address, was charged with defacing property.The police said detectives were cooperating with the U.S. Park Police to determine whether Tian was involved in similar offenses. On July 26, someone splashed paint on the Lincoln Memorial. On July 29, the statue of Joseph Henry on the National Mall near the Smithsonian Institution was discovered to have been defaced with paint. Henry was a Scottish-American scientist who served as the first secretary of the Smithsonian.
