Tim Visser extends Edinburgh deal

first_img This summer Tim Visser will be eligible to play for Scotland24-year-old Tim Visser has penned a new deal with Edinburgh Rugby, keeping the try-machine in the Scotland capital until 2015.Head coach Michael Bradley said: “Tim [Visser] is very much at home in Edinburgh and I’m sure that today’s announcement will make us the envy of many clubs in Europe. His consistency is what sets him apart. Year after year he has surpassed his own remarkable achievements and that desire, passion and ability is exactly what we look for in all of our players.“This is a very exciting time for Edinburgh Rugby. Not only are we preparing to be the first Scottish club to host a quarter-final in the Heineken Cup, we are working exceptionally hard behind the scenes to ensure we have the right players in place so we can continue to break new ground and celebrate even greater successes in the years ahead.”Visser’s try-scoring feats have made him a hit with supporters since he arrived from Newcastle Falcons in 2009, topping the RaboDirect PRO12 scoring charts in his first two years and breaking the record for the most scores in a single season last year with 14 touchdowns.Twickenham bore witness to his talents for finding the try line last summer when a brace for the Barbarians completed a 17 point comeback and victory against England, 38-32.This season it’s been business as usual for the 6’4”, 17 stone fans’ favourite, whose ten league tries puts him four clear at the top of the charts in the current PRO12 campaign with seven regular rounds remaining to topple his record. While his previous deal would have taken him a season past this landmark, Visser was explicit in his reasoning for committing his future to the Murrayfield club.He added: “There’s been a lot of talk, particularly among Edinburgh fans, about my qualification for Scotland. It would be an absolute honour to represent Scotland, a country whose fans have adopted me into their rugby family and made me the player I am today. If my performances merit selection for the national team then it would be a very proud moment indeed and I would do everything in my power to repay the support shown to me in these past three years.” EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – JANUARY 22: Edinburgh Rugby wing Tim Visser (c) celebrates during the Pool two match between Edinburgh Rugby and London Irish at Murrayfield Stadium on January 22, 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS His four tries from the six pool rounds of the club’s historic Heineken Cup campaign means he has the added opportunity to expand his impressive try tally of 40 scores in 66 appearances in the quarter-final against Toulouse at Murrayfield on Easter weekend (Saturday 7 April).“I’ve loved my time at Edinburgh Rugby, I feel right at home in the city and have had three great years of playing the rugby of my life”, Visser enthused. “I couldn’t do any of that without the support of the coaching, strength and conditioning staff and fellow players who have transformed me as a rugby player since I arrived, both physically and mentally.”This summer Visser will complete three years of residency in the country making him eligible for selection for Scotland’s summer Test matches against Samoa and Fiji.last_img read more

Wallaby weapon: Henry Speight fast-tracked for The Rugby Championship

first_imgBefore that comes Saturday, and the Brumbies’ Super semi-final date with the Waratahs, a tie set to showcase many of the Wallabies’ riches. All four of the aforementioned backs will be present and correct. Young Scott Sio, the visitors’ loosehead, can enhance his reputation and Michael Hooper’s back-row battle against Scott Fardy should be phenomenal.With one win each from their two previous meetings this term, both sides will fancy it as well. So, will it be the Brumbies’ big-game nous or the Waratahs’ red-hot home record that prevails? It’s difficult. Any prediction will be shrouded in some degree of uncertainty. Except this one: whenever the ball comes near Henry Speight, the volume and the voltage are sure to increase. Fro your own way: Henry Speight has impressed for the Brumbies and now the Fiji-born wing will be a Wallaby LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight center_img Indeed, the impish edge of McKenzie’s humour was evident on Wednesday when he praised Waikato for nurturing three of his current crop: prop Sekope Kefu, centre Christian Leali’ifano and Speight, who spent three years with the provincial outfit. In 2011, Canberra came calling with a guarantee of a shot at Super Rugby and the rest – despite Wayne Smith’s attempts to coax the big-haired tackle-buster back over the Tasman – is history.While Speight represented Fiji at the Under 19 World Championship in Belfast seven years ago (scoring four tries in one clash with Japan) he has clearly always looked beyond a white shirt.  Who can blame him? Such ambition is deeply ingrained. Late grandfather Josefa Iloilo, a former Fijian President and surrogate parent to Speight from the age of four when his mother died, openly nudged him towards green and gold rather than any other option.Yes, soon enough Speight will be a Wallaby, and probably an influential one. Another blockbuster runner to join imperious Israel Folau, electric Kurtley Beale, monstrous Tevita Kuridrani and ultra-tenacious Matt Toomua, plus plenty more.Constant threat: Israel Folau and Speight on the same team? Scary stuff…Having won their last seven Tests, punctuated by June’s 3-0 series whitewash over France, Australia are sneaking up on the world scene. McKenzie has added steel up front to stealth out wide and they will be genuine World Cup contenders for 2015. They might even end New Zealand’s world-record winning run in Sydney on August 16. Chuck Norris has been the subject of a prolific internet craze for almost a decade now. In early 2005, online punters started posting satirically superhuman feats to underline the omnipotence of their favourite American martial artist-cum-actor. We’ve all heard at least one. “When Chuck watches, the paint dries instantly” is a personal favourite.Well, now Norris has competition. Back in March on his 50th Super Rugby appearance for the Brumbies, against Australian rivals the Waratahs, Henry Speight broke his jaw in two places on the stroke of half-time. Refusing to jump in an ambulance or take painkillers – he was reluctant to come off at all – the wing sat on the touchline and watched the second half.After seeing the Brumbies eke out an impressive 28-23 win, Speight headed back to the changing rooms to celebrate. The injury stopped him joining in with a victory song, but he did manage to address his colleagues collectively and congratulate them on their guts. Only then did Speight drive himself to hospital, where he required two operations. Probably more painfully than anything else in his opinion was that all this meant a two-month lay-off.But Speight – rangy, rapid and blessed with the best ‘fro this side of the 70s – is far more than a teak-tough team man. Jaw healed, his performance last weekend against the Chiefs was wonderful in parts. Laurie Fisher’s rabid pack may have built the foundations for a 22-3 lead after half an hour, but Speight terrified the reigning champions early on.Semi-finalist: Speight’s Brumbies are through to the Super Rugby semisSkipping and spiralling away from defenders to evoke memories of Joe Rokocoko – another Fiji-born firecracker – the 26 year-old that Stephen Larkham calls “the world’s best winger” beat seven tacklers with his first six touches. Aaron Cruden kept kicking him the ball. He kept carving up.Speight’s showing was actually a microcosm of the entire game. He stormed out of the blocks, but let his champion opponents back in with moments of rawness – a couple of spills in contact, one overzealous turnover attempt that earned a yellow card. In the end, his part in a fantastic 32-30 success was significant, and fully deserving of a consequent call-up to Australia’s 32-man Rugby Championship squad.Given he is only eligible for Australia on September 11 – half-way through the tournament and after two Bledisloe Cup ties – Speight’s inclusion is a massive endorsement. Ewen McKenzie has identified something special. Learning from New Zealand’s mistake, he isn’t about to miss out either.last_img read more

Six Nations: Guy Noves making the right calls

first_imgIn his final years at Toulouse, Noves was much more a manager than a coach, with Jean-Baptiste Elissalde and William Servat his assistants and the men seen most on the training park. It will be a similar set up with France, Noves as Director of Rugby and Yannick Bru and Jeff Dubois the men tasked with implementing the game plan.Key lieutenants: Jeff Dubois and Yannick Bru are Guy Noves’ coachesBru was PSA’s forwards coach, and though he knows his rugby, he couldn’t claim to have achieved much success in the last four years. Dubois was backs coach at Stade Francais last season when the Parisians won the Top 14 title, scoring 60 tries in the regular season, a total bettered only by Toulon and Bordeaux.The 42-year-old Dubois is an attack-minded coach and he’s come far in a short space of time, graduating from Massy in the Federale 1 to Stade Francais to the national side. He’s young, ambitious but inexperienced in international terms. He’s also a former Toulouse player. As is Bru. The pair played together under Noves from 2004 to 2007.At least, they’ll know how Noves likes to operate, be aware of his foibles, his way of doing things. But will they stand up to him? If things go wrong, if one of them believes they need to make changes, in personnel or to the game-plan, will they have the courage to confront a man who Yoann Maestri this week described as ‘Un Colonel’? Servat and Elissalde were also former charges of Noves at Toulouse, and at times in the last years of Noves’ reign at the club they appeared little more than his lackeys. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Have we made a mistake? This correspondent and the other British and Irish commentators who have been noisily trumpeting that France have appointed the wrong man as their new coach.Guy Noves hasn’t put a foot wrong since taking over from Philippe Saint-Andre after last year’s World Cup, handling the media in a way his predecessor never managed and even mending fences with Bernard Laporte. Now he’s selected a XV for his first match that is bolder than any PSA picked. There are four new caps in Jonathan Danty, Virimi Vakatawa, Sebastien Bezy and Paul Jedrasiak and three more on the bench.Youthful air: Noves has picked seven debutants in his match 23Sir Clive Woodward wrote in his Mail on Sunday column last weekend that as a national coach “selection is your No1 skill. It is your team, your decision”. It was PSA’s weakness, as he admitted in an interview on Wednesday to promote his recent autobiography. “I acknowledge that I was a bad selector,” he said, adding that he found it hard to establish a rapport with the generation of players that in his opinion are the first to be the “true professionals”.Noves has always been a good talent spotter. Rugby courses through his vein but decades of experience as a P.E teacher, player and coach have honed his eye so that he rarely misses a diamond, however rough. That’s why he drafted in Teddy Thomas on Monday as cover for the injured Wesley Fofana, less than 48 hours after the Racing 92 winger had played his first game in eight months. Thomas has great potential, a glimpse of which was seen when he scored his brilliant solo try against Australia in November 2014, but he’s not the easiest of characters. PSA gave up on Thomas last year but Noves obviously believes he’ll be able to smooth down the rough edges and allow the 22-year-old to once more dazzle the world with his talent.Talent spotter: Teddy Thomas has been drafted in to replace Wesley FofanaNoves, who has 40 years on Thomas, has never baulked at blooding young talent. Look at some of the backs who have come up through the ranks at Toulouse: Frederic Michalak, Clement Poitrenaud, Maxime Medard, Jean-Marc Doussain and Gael Fickou.But therein lies the rub. Noves knows talent when he sees it but bringing it out has proved more of a problem. Look at that list again. How many can claim to have fulfilled their potential? Doussain appeared in the 2011 World Cup final aged 20. An 18-year-old Fickou announced himself to the world with a fine solo try against Leicester in the 2012 Heineken Cup. Their careers have stalled in recent years. The same goes for Michalak, Poitrenaud and Medard.The 29-year-old Medard, who has been picked at full-back against Italy, has been given a second life by Noves, making his first start in the 15 jersey for three years, but Poitrenaud is fated to be a player who could have been a great of the game if only his considerable gifts had been better coached. All the right moves: Guy Noves has surprised many with his bold selection center_img Seven potential debutants, building bridges politically and a charm offensive, Guy Noves has made all the right moves, but can it continue? Lines broken: France will need to stiffen up their defence in order to make headway in the Six NationsIt’s unlikely that Noves’ defence coach will, a man unknown to most across the Channel. Gérald Bastide has spent the last seven years working for the FFR, first with the national U19 squad and then the U20s. He would appear therefore to be an Establishment man. How good is he? The French junior teams haven’t excelled in recent years, and one coach high up in French rugby told me this week of his encounter with Bastide. During a coffee break at a recent coaching seminar, Bastide was asked by his peers to explain briefly his defensive philosophy. He looked pensive for ten seconds before declaring: “To build a good line”. The other coaches waited, expecting him to elaborate, but no more information was forthcoming. Eventually someone asked if that was it. Bastide deliberated for a few more moments and added: “To build a very good line.” With that he took his coffee and left.Perhaps Bastide was just pulling their legs. We’ll find out in the next few weeks, as we’ll discover if Noves is more than just a daring selector.last_img read more

U20 Final Preview: Ireland v England

TAGS: Highlight Signs of progress: England fans acclaim another try for their team. (Photo: Getty Images)England’s campaignEngland started this World Championship with a 48-10 win over Italy, then smashed Scotland 44-0, with Evans scoring one of the tries on his England U20 debut. “To nil a side in international rugby is quite an achievement,” Evans says. “It shows the work we have put in on our defensive systems and the attack was quite promising as well.”Their final group game was a fiery, feisty encounter with Australia and England won 17-13 after going 7-0 down to a try inside the first minute. “After they scored that early try, Wacker (skipper Jack Walker) brought us under the sticks and said ‘don’t worry’ and we kept our heads cool,” recalls Evans.“We went toe to toe in that match and no one was going to blink. The nerves were jangling for a bit but after we got our noses in front we showed the character of the squad with how we didn’t let them back into the game.” Good Evans: Will Evans on the charge for England U20 v Scotland.

(Photo: Inpho)Ireland’s campaignIreland’s first World Championship opponents were Wales and the men in green found themselves 17-0 down after 20 minutes before fighting back to win 26-20, thanks partly to two tries from 6ft 3in Stockdale.“It was a rough start against Wales, but we have got a good team ethos and we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game,” Stockdale says. “We went 17 points down and I got a bit worried but the guys did brilliantly to fight back and win.“It is always nice to score but I can’t take too much credit for those two tries because they were both set up by Conor O’Brien.”Next, Ireland took on New Zealand and upset the odds by winning 33-24. “We felt we had nothing to lose because no Irish team had ever beaten a New Zealand team so we went into it thinking ‘let’s have a go and see how it goes’ and it went pretty well,” laughs Stockdale.The full-back was rested for the final pool match against Georgia, which Ireland won 35-7. “Nigel (Carolan, the coach) made 13 changes for the Georgia game and we are lucky we have so much depth that we can do that.” Final countdownNeither Ireland nor, especially, England looked like they were heading for the World Championship final when they finished third and fifth respectively in this year’s U20 Six Nations. Stockdale, who started two of Ireland’s spring matches, says: “We have reduced the mistakes we have made and that has been a massive part of how we have improved.”Evans didn’t make England’s Six Nations squad, but he agrees that their World Cup squad is stronger thanks to the addition of players like Harry Mallinder and Johnny Williams who were on Premiership duty in February and March and adds: “Martin Haag and the new coaching staff must take a lot of credit for turning things around so quickly.”We did it! Ireland celebrate their semi-final win over Argentina. (Photo: Inpho)Ireland beat England 26-20 during that tournament, but with both teams having been on such excellent form during the World Championship, that result has little relevance. For England, this week is all about learning lessons from the way they let South Africa back into the game during the second half of the semi-final, and pushing on to win the final, while Ireland are trying to contain their excitement and produce another vintage performance.“We are impressed with Ireland,” says Evans. “We have been doing a lot of research on them this week. I don’t think we are favourites. We have put together some good rugby but so have Ireland so it will be interesting. I think it will be a great game for the neutral.“It’s pretty electric in camp at the moment. It’s a pleasure to be involved.” They were also-rans in this year’s Under 20 Six Nations, but now England and Ireland are going head-to-head in Saturday’s World Rugby U20 Championship final. We talked to Will Evans and Jacob Stockdale ahead of the big game. Semi-final timeIreland were up first in the semi-finals, taking on Argentina and Stockdale scored a try after seven minutes and another after 28 to help his team race to a 21-0 lead. “We thought because Argentina had beaten the French and South Africa in the pool it was going to be a really tight game but we came out absolutely firing and knew what we had to do and it paid off really well,” Stockdale says.Ireland kept their foot on the throttle and closed out a 37-7 win, then settled back to see who would win the other semi-final, between England and South Africa.Go Johnny go: Centre Johnny Williams tries to break a South African tackle. (Photo: Getty Images)England made a superb start while South Africa were all at sixes and sevens, and the hosts led 26-3 at one stage, before easing up for a final score of 39-17 to England.“We played some outstanding rugby in the first half but the first 20 minutes of the second half wasn’t good enough,” says Evans. Ireland’s Under 20 side have already made history this month, becoming the first team from their nation to reach the final of the World Rugby U20 Championship. On Saturday they are aiming to extend that legend by another chapter and beat England in the final in Manchester to lift the trophy for the first time. “That’s exactly what we are hoping,” says their full-back Jacob Stockdale. “If we do it, we will be making more history.”Clearly, England have other ideas. Their 2016 team are attempting to match the achievement of the 2013 and 2014 sides who won the World Championship. This is the fourth time in succession England have reached the U20 final, but their openside, Will Evans, says that record is more a source of pride than pressure.“We came into the tournament knowing we have a strong squad, with quite a few players who had already played Aviva Premiership rugby, so we want to emulate those other teams.” Stockdale says: “There are not many experiences which can compete with how this has gone so far. I am incredibly excited. No Irish team has got this far in the tournament before. Watching England play, they are a really, really good team and they are never an easy team to beat. If we can win it will be incredible.”Saturday’s U20 World Championship fixtures:12 noon – Italy v Japan (11th place playoff)2.15pm – Georgia v France (9th place playoff)2.30pm – Argentina v South Africa (3rd place playoff)4.30pm – Scotland v Wales (7th place playoff)4.45pm – Australia v New Zealand (5th place playoff)7pm – Ireland v England (final). read more

All you need to know about next Glasgow coach Dave Rennie

first_imgAll Kiwis would love to coach the All Blacks. It’s a timing thing and I’ve never been in a hurry. I could have got involved in Super Rugby earlier but did ten years of ITM Cup rugby before I moved up. There’s no doubt I’d love to coach the All Blacks but Steve Hansen is doing a pretty good job.This article originally appeared in the August 2016 issue of Rugby World.

Dave Rennie will replace Gregor Townsend as head coach of Glasgow Warriors next summer and we give you the lowdown on the New Zealander TAGS: Glasgow Warriors On the move: Dave Rennie will swap Hamilton for Glasgow next summer. Photo: Getty Images LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Super Rugby titles at the Chiefs have been special. The Chiefs had never won anything in the past (before back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013). We brought in some good people, some fresh blood, but we also had guys who’d been around the Chiefs for a while, players like Liam Messam and Craig Clarke, who were desperate for success.Fans’ favourite: Dave Rennie on the Chiefs’ victory parade in 2012. Photo: Getty ImagesAt the Chiefs we’re prepared to attack from anywhere. That’s the style of footy we play but I enjoy all aspects of the game. Historically, the Chiefs have been seen as a pretty brutal side in terms of our carrying and clean and defence, but I generally coach attack.A big part of what we do is focus on keeping the ball alive. That’s at the contact area, with offloads and so on to put teams under pressure. We put a lot of emphasis on that, just as you train for the set-piece. After all, there are far more rucks, kicks etc in a game than scrums and lineouts. Every player has to understand when to offload and what type of offload, say a basketball pass, will work.I’ve spent time with different sports. Australian rugby league teams, American Football, basketball, golf… Often it’s just about those opportunities to sit down and share ideas, with both parties walking away with something to help their game. I think shared learning is really good.My wife and I enjoy landscaping. So invariably if I have a break we’ll be gardening or building – getting the chainsaw out! It normally involves a lot of work but it’s something a bit different.Memorable win: Aaron Cruden and the NZ squad with the U20 World Cup in 2009. Photo: Getty ImagesI did three campaigns with New Zealand U20. It was pretty satisfying to work with the best kids in the country, go away to a world tournament and win all three. The 2009 win was probably more satisfying than the others. In 2008 we had an incredibly strong side and beat England 38-3 in the final. In 2010 it was 62-17 (against Australia), but in 2009, when Aaron Cruden captained the team, we weren’t the best team on paper. England were strong, had a massive forward pack and lots of experience, with 16 guys who had been playing in Premiership teams. I thought the team grew during the tournament and we played really well in the final (beating England 44-28).It’s the right time for a new challenge. I’m contracted to the Chiefs until the end of 2017 and I’ll have been here for six years by next year so the team will need a new voice and new direction. Dave Rennie will take over from Gregor Townsend as Glasgow Warriors coach next summer. Townsend is leaving his post to take up the Scotland reins in June and the SRU have pulled off quite a coup in bringing in highly-rated Kiwi coach Rennie from the Chiefs for the 2017-18 season.Rennie, a former Wellington centre, has carved out a hugely successful coaching career, winning NPC, U20 World Championship and Super Rugby titles.He told Rugby World recently that he was keen to coach in Europe, saying: “It would be a chance to immerse myself in a different culture and see a bit more of the world. Going overseas I’d learn about different competitions and conditions too.”Key player: Finn Russell has impressed for Glasgow over the years. Photo: Getty ImagesSigning with Glasgow allows him to achieve that and here the 52-year-old talks through his rugby background and his coaching philosophy…I was a pretty good club player and a pretty average representative player. But I loved the game and was very passionate about it. I thought a lot about rugby and I was coached by some sharp people in my younger days, who thought about playing the game in different ways. Bill Fleming is a guy not many people will have heard of, but he coached me in my senior rugby days and we played a different style of rugby to everyone else. I really enjoyed that.I finished playing quite early, at 27. I played 60 games for Wellington from 1986 to 1991, but I had a recurring shoulder injury and was a schoolteacher at the time – both factors in my decision to stop. It turned out well, though, as I got into coaching earlier. My kids were playing footy by that stage, so I coached age-grade at the Upper Hutt club and then worked with the senior sides.Coming from a teaching background helped. I taught at intermediate school – ages 12 and 13 – so I did a bit of everything and coached a lot of different sports. As a coach and a teacher you work with a variety of people from all walks of life and things like man-management are really important.Pass masters: The Chiefs are known for their offloading game under Dave Rennie. Photo: Getty ImagesGraham Mourie had a massive impression on me. When I was first involved with coaching Wellington (in 1999) he was head coach, and as well as being a former All Blacks captain he was very smart and very innovative. To work with him for three years was good for me.I spent four years at the International Rugby Academy of New Zealand. Primarily I facilitated the courses for players but there was a bit of crossover with the coaching courses. The great thing about IRANZ is that you’d have a lot of specialists coming in who were strong in certain parts of the game. They were really good coaches and it was a chance to talk rugby with those people and share ideas. It was really good for my knowledge.I’m constantly looking at the game. It’s such a complex sport while rules and laws change too, so you have to keep up with that. It’s about working out ways to get an advantage, the technical side of the game.last_img read more

An extensive number of private and public buildings were destroyed including Holy Trinity Cathedral and the affiliated Episcopal institutions in the Cathedral Complex in Port-au-Prince.The Project Team made its recommendation following a yearlong strategic process. The members of the project team are diocese of Haiti officials: Bishop Jean Zaché Duracin; Sikhumbuzo Vundla, chief of operations; the Rev. Joseph Constant, special coordinator; and the Rev. John Runkle, RA, consulting project manager.“Faced with the enormity of rebuilding most of its churches, schools and other structures throughout the earthquake ravaged region, the Diocese of Haiti decided to concentrate its initial efforts on rebuilding Holy Trinity Cathedral as a prominent landmark of God’s abiding presence with the Haitian people and the church’s commitment to serve them,” Duracin said. “The new cathedral will be a beacon of hope to all who suffer.”“The project team agreed Kerns Group is the architectural firm that will best embody the vision for a new Cathedral that reflects the history and culture of the Haitian people,” said Constant. “Kerns Group bring years of extensive experience designing new churches, including a number of notable Episcopal Churches, throughout much of the United States. And with the Episcopal Church, they also share a profound sense of mission to the people of Haiti that will result in a cathedral unique to the church there.”“This marks an important milestone in the effort to rebuild our church in Haiti,” said Bishop Stacy Sauls, Episcopal Church chief operating officer. “It has come about because of the hard work of many people from the Diocese of Haiti, the Church Center, and beyond. It has come about in no small part due to the generosity of thousands of Episcopalians from across our church who have given to rebuild the Holy Trinity Cathedral. I want to especially thank Albert E. Phillips and Laura Thomas of the Atlanta law firm of Cohen, Pollock, Merlin & Small for their tireless dedication and extreme generosity in getting us to this point.”The new cathedral will be designed to respect and celebrate the characteristics of the Episcopal Church in Haiti, the Haitian people and their culture. The worship space will be larger than the previous cathedral and will provide the flexibility to accommodate larger congregations. It will incorporate the three, surviving, world-renowned, painted murals, of the original 14 that adorned the interior of the destroyed cathedral.

Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL December 12, 2012 at 11:07 pm Fr. Jay has an important point, but I fear it is lost to the decision makers in Haiti. Fr. Jay has a modern approach to ministry – focused on the mission to the people and not on appearance. But the church in Haiti, in my experience, is focused on medieval methods of evangelism, where the building of a large church was enough to bring the populace into the fold. Haitians are well aware of “bondie” but not of His word or teachings. What brings them in is attention to their needs – food, education, health care, etc.. It amazes me that the American church has gotten behind the plan put forward by the Haitian church when they well understand what really works. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Comments (6) Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN Curate Diocese of Nebraska May 26, 2014 at 10:57 pm To everything there is a season:A time to build a cathedral and a time to build homes and businesses;A time for the Christian community to gather for worship, sacrament, learning, and fellowship, and a time for that community to go forth to serve by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and empowering the weak to become strong;A time to lift up art and encourage artistic expression, and a time to enjoy the results as we see the myriad ways people grow intellectually and spiritually as the community blossoms in so many surprising ways..The rabbis of old times had an expression: “Where there is no wine, there is no joy.”Where there is no good architecture, no profound storytelling, no drawing or painting, no good music, no drama, no good design, you have no imagination, no creative problem solving, no three dimensional understanding of new learning, and no powerful spirituality.It is not a question of either/or but of both/and. A great cathedral facility under responsible leadership will not detract from ministry but become the Lord’s instrument to energize and continually enhance it. It is not of secondary importance in the scheme of things, it is primary. Rector Shreveport, LA Thomas R.

Presiding Bishop issues statement on LGBT rights

first_img January 30, 2014 at 4:32 pm I am so grateful for the clarity, concision, and Gospel-centered accuracy of this statement from our Presiding Bishop. It is inspiring. Thank you. Rector Hopkinsville, KY Presiding Bishop issues statement on LGBT rights [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued the following statement on LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered) rights:The Episcopal Church has been clear about our expectation that every member of the LGBT community is entitled to the same respect and dignity as any other member of the human family.  Our advocacy for oppressed minorities has been vocal and sustained.  The current attempts to criminalize LGBT persons and their supporters are the latest in a series, each stage of which has been condemned by this Church, as well as many other religious communities and nations.  Our advocacy work continues to build support for the full human rights and dignity of all persons, irrespective of gender, race, national origin, creed, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability or inability.  To do less is effectively to repudiate our membership in the human community.  No one of God’s children is worth less or more than another; none is to be discriminated against because of the way in which she or he has been created.  Our common task is to build a society of justice for all, without which there will never be peace on earth. Episcopalians claim that our part in God’s mission is to love God fully, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.  That means all our neighbors.The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal Church January 30, 2014 at 4:19 pm Beautifully written! Thank you for your advocacy!

May my (LGBT) tribe do the same for others in need and may we support the most vulnerable among us, LGBT teens. Amen. January 30, 2014 at 4:39 pm Given the polity of our church — and I’ll take it rather than any other I know — individual bishops, other clergy and laity mostly form their own consciences and their polity without coercion by ‘higher authority’. I would urge any who are dissatisfied with the position of their bishops to work directly with them toward a reformation of their consciences and the polity of their dioceses. And while the context of Bishop Katharine’s statement is not clear to me , I’m guessing she is speaking to our Episcopal Church, including to the Bishop of SW Florida, and I am grateful for her years of effective support for our LGBT members and fellow Americans.

We are very fortunate to have The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori as our Presiding Bishop. Praying for more individuals and congregations to see the light in her statement. January 30, 2014 at 8:02 pm We are a global faith, even tho there is autonomy, and a variety of voices which we accept as “diversity”. I would like to hear some more Episcopal voices raised in support those particulary in Uganda, being the worst, but in many African countries have draconian laws against LGBT people, and in many African countries, the clergy is complicit in accepting the laws. For those who would say “we have to get our own house in order” should think back to Hitler, when too few in the clergy spoke out against him until it was too late. Thus far, our response on Uganda and other countries with similar policies has been far too timid, January 30, 2014 at 7:31 pm I, too, would like to know the context that moved Bishop Jefferts-Schorri to make this statement. Given the public and official witness of the Episcopal Church to the issues around the rightful place of the LGBT community, it would seem—on the surface of it—somewhat superfluous. Make no mistake, I surely do support our efforts to end the injustices and cruelties inflicted by homophobia. The church is on record in many ways, both to support our LGBT neighbors and to knock down the barriers that have confined them within the church and outside it . Unhappily, the job isn’t done yet, but I do wonder which specific circumstances provoked this response.
