Last Wednesday, Sept. 14, on the Church calendar we celebrated Holy Cross Day. This is considered one of the major feast days in the Episcopal Church. One of my favorite theologians is John Duns Scotus. Philippe Yates explains how Duns Scotus’ theology differs in regards to the cross than we are used to. He says: “When our view of the cross is that God demands blood in order to redeem, it is little surprise we have a country and culture that wants to see people suffer even more before help will be provided. But when we understand a God who enters into our suffering, we see that it is that kind of grace through which we are transformed.”  


Fr. Joseph Krasinski

The Theology of John Duns Scotus

Philippe Yates


We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

If we have died with him, we shall also life with him;

If we endure, we shall also reign with him.

Almighty God, with whom do live the spirits of them that depart hence in the Lord, and with whom the souls of the faithful, after they are delivered from the burden of the flesh, are in joy and felicity: We give thee hearty thanks, for that it hath pleased thee to deliver this our sister out of the miseries of this sinful world; beseeching thee, that it may please thee, of thy gracious goodness, shortly to accomplish the number of thine elect, and to hasten thy kingdom; that we, with all those that are departed in the true faith of thy holy Name, may have our perfect consummation and bliss, both in body and soul, in thy eternal and everlasting glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Archbishop of Canterbury writes to global Anglican leaders following the death of Queen Elizabeth II


8 September 2022


To Primates of the Anglican Communion & Moderators of the United Churches


Your Graces,


It is with deep sadness that I write this letter to you, on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


Her Late Majesty was not only Queen of The United Kingdom but was also Queen and Head of State of 15 other nations – territories served by many provinces of our Anglican Communion.


Through her annual Christmas messages to the Commonwealth, we heard, in her own words, Her Late Majesty’s witness to her strong Christian faith.

As Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and as a faithful Christian disciple, Her Late Majesty lived out her faith every day of her life. Her trust in God and profound love for him was foundational in how she led her life – hour by hour, day by day.


In Her Late Majesty’s life we saw what it means to receive the gift of life we have been given by God and – through patient, humble, selfless service – share it as a gift to others.


Her Late Majesty found great joy and fulfilment in the service of her people and her God “whose service is perfect freedom” (BCP). For giving her whole life to us, and allowing her life of service to be an instrument of God’s peace among us, we owe Her Late Majesty a debt of gratitude beyond measure.


Her Late Majesty leaves behind a truly extraordinary legacy: one that is found in almost every aspect of our national life, as well as the lives of so many nations around the world, and especially in the Commonwealth.

I ask you to join me in prayers for the Royal Family, and especially for the new King.


Pray too for the people of all the countries in His Majesty’s realms and territories: Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


And may I humbly ask you to pray for me, too: that God will strengthen, guide and support me in my duties at this time of mourning; as I assure you, too, of my continuing prayers for you all; and especially for the provinces which serve areas included in Her Late Majesty’s realm and territories.


In the peace of Christ

Highlighting Hispanic Voices

Fr. Oscar Rozo

episcopalchurch.org     the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina


When you think Episcopal, what images come to mind? Liturgy? Organ music? Presiding bishop? When I think about The Episcopal Church, I think about Purepechas and Multicultural Centers. 


While serving as the diocesan missioner of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, I have been working with different communities of faith that are hosting liturgies in Spanish as well as communities of faith that are in the midst of dreaming about how to reach out and build long-lasting relationships with Latinos/Hispanics and other minority groups. Among the groups I work with, two groups in North Carolina come to mind: Trinity Episcopal Church in Sprucepine and the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Newton. 


Trinity Episcopal Church is located in a small town in the Appalachian mountains, 30 minutes north of Marion, North Carolina. Every Sunday afternoon, members from the Latino congregation gather for the celebration of Holy Eucharist. Eighty percent of the members that gather at this parish belong to an Indigenous tribe in Michoacan, Mexico, the Purepecheas Tribe. Known as one of the first tribes formed in the 8th century and descendants of the original groups of people who migrated to the continent of America from East Asia, the Purepechas migrated to Northern Mexico in the early 14th century. Since then, the Purepecha tribe made its home in the state of Michoacan. However, due to the war between drug lords and the Mexican government, Purepecha descendants have been pushed out of this region and many members of this community have migrated to northern lands.  


Part of our work as a church has been to listen to God’s voice in the long journey and history of this Indigenous people. In the process of listening, we have learned about the many needs this community has. Aware of the lack of resources for this community and other Latino/Hispanic individuals living in the area, we have partnered with churches, local organizations, and groups such as Episcopal Relief and Development to provide financial support, feed those in need, and provide resources to the community. We are building community, empowering people, and developing long-lasting relationships. 


An hour-and-half southwest, in the city of Newton, North Carolina, the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany began in 2022 as a community resource known as the multicultural center. Aware of the diverse voices living in this area of the state, the church and the diocese partnered to open a center that focuses on providing spaces to celebrate and learn about diversity. Our multicultural center provides classes in English and Spanish as a Second Language, music (guitar and piano), and computers and offers pastoral care and support to minority groups. Our goal is to use this center to build bridges with minority groups, the larger community, and the church.  


When I hear the term Episcopal Church, I think Purepechas, I think multicultural centers, I think new opportunities to grow and learn from the diverse voices that are present in our communities. What does The Episcopal Church look like in your neck of the woods? 

Oscar Rozo is the diocesan missioner for Latino Hispanic ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina. Oscar is originally from Bogota, Colombia. Oscar is married to the Rev. Elizabeth Tester, who serves as priest in Western North Carolina. They have a son and daughter, Ezekiel and Miriam. 

Bishop Eaton's Weekly Message

Returns in September

hispanicheritagemonth.gov       episcopalchurch.org


Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.


The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.


The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.


In the church, it’s a time to remember and acknowledge the contributions that our elders in ministry have bequeathed to us. We also take the opportunity to highlight the contributions of some of our leaders and ministries across the entire church. For example, last year, the Office of Latino/Hispanic Ministries interviewed four Latino families who are doing ministry or have been involved in various ministry areas across the church. We chose these families because the children are “preachers’ kids,” yet they are strongly involved in the life of the church with their own distinct ministries. We wanted to show how their faith, love for our church, and sense of ministry was passed on by their parents.  


The Hispanic Heritage Month celebration is an opportunity to remind the church that Latino ministry is not an outreach ministry. Latin@s over the last five decades have brought their love of Jesus, passion for ministry, vibrant music, and energetic worship to our church–and with all that, an evangelistic spirit that is breathing new life into The Episcopal Church. Latino ministry is the fastest growing segment of The Episcopal Church, yet our work to uplift and recognize the contributions of Latin@s in the church is still uphill. The church is moving, but we are far from where we need to be. Out of 112 dioceses in the U.S.A., only four have bishops with Latino heritage. In addition, only 16 dioceses have either a full- or part-time diocesan Latino missioner position. There is so much to do to initiate and enhance our existing Latino congregations, and many dioceses rely on volunteers who typically have other full-time jobs and are overworked.  


In spite of these limitations, Latinos love their newfound spiritual home and are offering their gifts to support the life and ministry of The Episcopal Church. They also want to see it grow and are inviting their friends and families. Everywhere you will see children and youth. Truly these are things we can be thankful for and celebrate during Hispanic Heritage Month.

Theodore of Tarsus

Seventh Archbishop of Canterbury

Feast Day - September 19

britannica        episcopal church.org


Saint Theodore of Canterbury, (born c. 602, TarsusCilicia, Asia Minor—died Sept. 19, 690, CanterburyKent, Eng.; feast day September 19), seventh archbishop of Canterbury and the first archbishop to rule the whole English Church.


Appointed by Pope St. Vitalian, Theodore was consecrated in 668 and then set out from Rome with SS. Adrian, abbot of Nerida, Italy, and Benedict Biscop, later abbot of Wearmouth and Jarrow, Durham. In 669 they reached Canterbury, where Theodore made Adrian the abbot of SS. Peter and Paul monastery, afterward named St. Augustine’s. There they created a famous school influential in the lives of such brilliant scholars as the celebrated historian St. Bede the Venerable and the skilled church architect St. Aldhelm.


Theodore organized the English Church, many sees of which were vacant on his arrival and others of which needed to be divided. In 672 he called at Hertford the first general synod of the English Church to end certain Celtic practices and to divide dioceses. The division issue was postponed, but the synod imposed the date of the Roman Easter, established obedience for clerics and monks, forbade bishops to interfere in other dioceses, and reaffirmed the church teaching on marriage and divorce.


During this period Theodore came into sharp conflict with Wilfrid, whom he had made bishop of York but whom he soon deposed. Wilfrid went to Rome in 677/678 to protest. Meanwhile, in 678, Theodore helped settle relations between King Aethelred of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia and King Ecgfrith of Northumbria, whom Aethelred had defeated in battle. Theodore’s synod at Hatfield in 679 cleared the English Church from associations with the heresy of the Monothelites (q.v.). In 686 he mended the conflict with Wilfrid by admitting his error and effecting Wilfrid’s restoration. Theodore’s Penitential, a collection of his rulings made by his disciples, became influential in England and on the Continent.


Theodore’s greatest achievement was to adapt the Roman ideal of a centralized church to English conditions. His establishment of a centralized church under the archbishopric of Canterbury in close alliance with secular rulers was maintained by his successors. No biography of Theodore has survived.



Collect:

Almighty God, who gave your servant Theodore of Tarsus gifts of grace and wisdom to establish unity where there had been division and order where there had been chaos: Create in your church, by the operation of the Holy Spirit, such godly union and concord that it may proclaim, both by word and example, the Gospel of the Prince of Peace; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Episcopal Migration Ministries

Neighbor to Neighbor

episcopal church.org



This month, our friends at Episcopal Migration Ministries share the many facets of their work with refugees and other forcibly displaced people.


Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM), the refugee resettlement and migration ministry of The Episcopal Church, provides training and ongoing support to faith communities who serve as community sponsors for asylum seekers. Through EMM’s Neighbor to Neighbor program, community sponsors welcome their new neighbors by offering friendship, fostering community connections, and providing practical support such as housing, assistance in accessing services and navigating the community, enrolling children in school, supporting adults in learning English and securing employment, and more.


What’s the process?

  1. Neighbor to Neighbor (NtN) is organized into five phases, with EMM guiding and supporting NtN teams through each step.
  2. Discernment: Prospective NtN teams complete an initial interest form and attend an information session.
  3. Training: NtN teams are granted access to on-demand training videos and resources, as well as other training materials, so they can learn, plan, and prepare to welcome their new neighbors.
  4. Readiness Assessment: NtN teams provide EMM with detailed descriptions of their plans to welcome their new neighbors. EMM reviews the plans, meets with the NtN team, and, once approved, works with partner organizations to match a new neighbor to the team.
  5. Matching & Sponsorship: The team welcomes their new neighbors and follows their detailed plan. NtN teams have regular check-in calls with EMM, attend monthly Communities of Practice calls with other NtN teams, and submit reports on team activities.
  6. Conclusion: EMM provides each NtN team with resources and coaching on how to bring the community sponsorship relationship with your new neighbors to a close. We reflect with you on the experience and celebrate your work as you, in turn, mark the conclusion of this chapter in your relationship with the new neighbors.

Sunday's Readings | September 18, 2022


Scandalous Servant?


Amos 8:4-7

Psalm  Ps. 113

1 Timothy 2:1-7

Luke 16:1-13

select to be directed to the readings


It’s been called the most baffling of Jesus’ parables, this tale of the unjust steward. Some New Testament scholars suggest that Luke himself didn’t know what to make of it. Thus, he tacked on to the end of it the assorted and rather contradictory sayings from Jesus about money. Like spare keys in a junk drawer, surely one must fit.


Perhaps Luke is right, and Jesus really is trying to say something about money. Certainly, many devote themselves to it with a breathtaking passion. Mammon is a god well-served, and wisely too. Like the greedy merchants of our Old Testament lesson, many can think of nothing but its claims on their life. Religion, recreation, honesty, self-respect — all must be sacrificed on its altar. “When will the sabbath be over,” they ask, “that we may sell grain?” — and they fail to see a bit of irony or pathos in the question. Would that God be served so carefully, so wisely. If we managed his affairs with the same “shrewd dealing,” think how many more friends there would be to greet us in the age to come.


Perhaps Jesus himself is the scandalous servant, playing fast and loose with the Master’s account book. The Pharisees balked at his open display of mercy. He welcomed the most unsavory of followers, and raced ahead of the customary process for repentance and forgiveness. In short, as William Murdoch has written, this parable is a tale of the “roguery of grace.” Jesus absolved debts that could never be paid. His kingdom is for everybody — short sales left and right. This Messiah never saw a friend he didn’t like. What the Pharisees miss is that the Son is just like that scandalous Father of his, who, as St. Paul tells us, desires “that all should be saved and come to know the truth.”


Look It Up: Read Leviticus 25 and Luke 4:19. If Jesus understood his kingdom as the beginning of an age of jubilee, what might this mean for the forgiveness of debts in this parable?


Think About It: In interpreting this parable, St. Augustine wrote: “We can understand that we have to give alms and that we must not really pick and choose to whom we give them, because we are unable to sift through people’s hearts.” Is his advice reflected in your approach to giving?

Lay Readers needed!

lector.jpg

During worship, lectors assist in being the transmitters of God’s Word, reading the Old Testament and New Testament lessons in the context of our liturgy. When we take our place at the lectern and open the Bible to read, we are no less actors – storytellers of God’s Story. We strive to re-create, through their lines written thousands of years ago, to bring the Word of God alive to our world in the 21st century. At Trinity, lectors also serve as Intercessors, leading the congregation in the Prayers of the People.


Trinity is also looking for those interested in serving as a greeter / usher. A smiling face and warm welcome are all you need. If you feel called to either or both of these ministries, please contact the office at office@trinitymiami.org or Thomas Porto at thomas44a@gmail.com.

E f M Group Forming


Education for Ministry is a program of theological education created by Sewanee's School of Theology.

Episcopal dioceses, churches pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

episcopal news service.org


Episcopal dioceses and congregations are joining people all over the world in paying tribute to Britain’s longest-serving monarch Queen Elizabeth II, who died Sept. 8 at 96, with numerous services planned in her honor.


Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California, tolled its bells after news broke of the queen’s death, and at an evensong service later in the day, visitors were invited to sign a condolence book. Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota, Florida, also tolled its bells – 70 times, representing Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne – and a requiem service is planned for Sept. 15. Another service is planned Sept. 14 at Zion Episcopal Church in Washington, North Carolina.


In the Diocese of Rhode Island, two Evensongs are in the works to mark the queen’s death, Bishop Nicholas Knisely said on Twitter. “While she was not our monarch, there are many British and Commonwealth citizens who attend Episcopal churches in Rhode Island and this would be a way for them to give thanks for her life and to recognize what she has meant to so many,” Knisely said.

Julia Ayala Harris, new House of Deputies president, on priorities, representation and 'falling in love' with The Episcopal Church

episcopal news service.org

  

Julia Ayala Harris’ election as president of the House of Deputies at the 80th General Convention in July was imbued with the energy of historic change. She is the first woman of color — the first Latina — and at age 41, the youngest president in recent memory, elected from the youngest and most diverse slate of candidates ever. A former Roman Catholic, Ayala Harris brings the perspective of a convert who discovered The Episcopal Church as an adult.


Ayala Harris’ path to one of the highest-ranking positions in The Episcopal Church has been a personal and spiritual journey going back two decades. In her 21 years as an Episcopalian, the self-described “church geek” ascended through the church’s leadership, giving her an extensive résumé. She has served twice as a deputy from the Diocese of Oklahoma, a six-year term on Executive Council and over a dozen other leadership positions within The Episcopal Church and her diocese. She has also represented the Anglican Communion at the 2016 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and is currently representing The Episcopal Church at the World Council of Churches 11th Assembly in Germany.


Ayala Harris, a first-generation Mexican American whose father was an undocumented immigrant, has managed nonprofit organizations around the U.S. and beyond. Among them are programs that provide transitional housing for homeless women and children, permanent supportive housing for people with disabilities, access to the arts, alternatives to incarceration for pregnant women and mothers. From 2005 to 2008, she was an international aid worker in Kenya and South Sudan with Church Ecumenical Action, supporting South Sudanese faith-based nonprofits and dioceses in grant writing, financial management and program design.


She is currently working on a doctorate focusing on faith-based nonprofit leadership – especially public perceptions of nonprofit leaders based on their race, gender or ethnicity – at the University of Oklahoma, where her husband, John, teaches regional and urban planning. They live with their teenage daughter, Izzy, in Norman, Oklahoma, where they enjoy spending time in nature, puzzles and board games, and above all, anything “Star Trek”-related.

In Kazakhstan, Pope Francis is expected to appeal for peace in Ukraine

religionnews.com


Pope Francis will be traveling to Kazakhstan, a country nestled between Russia and China, on Tuesday for a “pilgrimage of dialogue and peace,” as he attends a summit of global religious leaders. But the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill’s recent cancellation casts a shadow over the pope’s hope to mediate peace in the Russia-Ukraine conflict at the gathering.


“It will be an opportunity to meet many religious representatives and dialogue with brothers, moved by the common desire for peace, a peace our world thirsts for,” Pope Francis told the thousands gathered at St. Peter’s Square for his Angelus prayer on Sunday (Sept. 11).


The pope will be visiting the majority-Muslim and Orthodox country from Sept. 13–15 to take part in the interfaith Congress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, which meets once every three years to promote peace and tolerance. The event will take place in the pyramidal Palace of Peace and Harmony in the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan, where participants are expected to sign a joint document.


The Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, with whom Pope Francis signed a document promoting human fraternity in 2019, and the chief rabbi of Israel, David Lau, will be among the religious leaders at the event.


The last pope to visit Kazakhstan was Pope John Paul II, who came to the country in 2001 at a time of political turmoil, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. Francis visits the country amid similar tensions as the East and West once again collide in Ukraine. The pope and the Vatican have made every effort to remain impartial on the conflict, with a hope of acting as a mediator in the war even as the opportunities for dialogue grow increasingly slim.

At first, the pope hoped his relationship with Kirill, cemented during their historic meeting at the airport in Havana, Cuba, in 2016, might provide a way in for dialogue. But the Orthodox leader has offered a theological basis for the Russian invasion of Ukraine by emphasizing its religious unity with Russia. A meeting between Francis and Kirill in Jerusalem scheduled for last summer was canceled, and when the pope warned the patriarch over a video call in March about becoming “Putin’s altar boy,” the relationship seems to have chilled.


In August, the Orthodox Patriarchy in Moscow announced Kirill would not be attending the interfaith congress in Kazakhstan. Meanwhile, Francis has sent Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, charged with dispensing papal charity, to Ukraine to express his support for its beleaguered people.


Russia will loom over the interfaith gathering regardless. “Kazakhstan has very strong political and economic ties with Russia and China,” said Bishop Adelio Dell’Oro of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, during an online meeting with journalists on Friday (Sept. 9).

Dell’Oro explained that while there were initially tensions between the sizable Russian and Ukrainian expat populations in the country, they have dissipated. “I saw unity in the dioceses I visited,” he said. In the multicultural and multireligious context of Kazakhstan, the bishop believes the pope can still find fertile ground for his message of peace at the congress.


“Obviously this forum seems like a place where the pope can certainly amplify even more his message for peace and concord,” he said, adding that participants likely expect Francis to deliver such a message.
