Delve and Pyle named Rebel’s vice-captains

first_img Despite his age Hugh is up for the responsibilityThe RaboDirect Rebel’s are pleased to announce, as part of the clubs leadership succession plan, joint Vice-Captains for the upcoming FxPro Super Rugby season.Hugh Pyle, one of the clubs developing leaders, and Gareth Delve, Vice-Captain in the Rebels’ inaugural year, will share the position in 2012.Prior to joining the Rebels, Delve had previously captained Gloucester in the English Premiership and in 2011 became the first non-Australian to captain an Australian side in Super Rugby (Round 9 v Highlanders).Delve is looking forward to guiding Pyle through the next 12 months: “I am fortunate to have gained some great experience throughout my career and learned off some terrific leaders.  I thoroughly enjoyed my experience as Vice-Captain and I am honoured that the club have chosen to retain me in this role.“It is an exciting time to be a part of the Rebels and Hugh Pyle is an impressive young man.  I look forward to guiding Hugh, while allowing him to develop his own style of leadership.  We are both fortunate to have Stirling Mortlock as our Captain and we look forward to providing him all of the necessary support.” Pyle had no previous Super Rugby experience before joining the Rebels, but after a terrific 2011 season, he was named in the Wallabies post-season training squad. It has been a meteoric rise to date for the young Lock and Pyle admits it has been a little surreal.“Initially, I was just happy to be playing Super Rugby and was focused on securing a spot in the starting 15,” said Pyle. “With the help of the coaching staff and my teammates, I managed to have a solid 2011.  The fact the club has been willing to put so much faith in me is very humbling and I am just focused on repaying that faith.“I honestly do not believe I would be in this position without the support of my teammates.  We are blessed with a number of strong leaders at the club and it is their guidance that has helped me develop.  It is a real privilege to have Gareth and Stirling at my side and I will certainly be turning to both for advice throughout the year.” GEELONG, AUSTRALIA – FEBRUARY 03: Hugh Pyle of the Rebels runs with the ball during the Super Rugby trial match between the Melbourne Rebels and the Chiefs at Simonds Stadium on February 3, 2012 in Geelong, Australia. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS RaboDirect Rebels Head Coach Damien Hill said today he is thrilled with his new look leadership team.“Having such high quality individuals in this position is very encouraging, especially as we prepare to face the many challenges ahead,” said Hill. “I am confident that with Gareth and Stirling’s guidance, Hugh will accelerate his development as a future leader of our club. Both players thoroughly deserve this honour and I am very pleased to see Hugh develop his skills under players of Gareth’s and Stirling’s  calibre, he is in very good hands.”last_img read more

Anglican Communion Secretary General responds to Scottish Episcopal Church vote…

first_img Donn Mitchell says: Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Pittsburgh, PA The Rev’d Dr Richard G. Leggett says: June 12, 2017 at 5:54 pm The 10 Commandments warns against coveting another man’s wife which leads to adultery and divorce. In order for adultery to exist then a “one flesh” marriage needs to exist, and this isn’t a legal state marriage certificate as Bathsheba and Uriah never purchased one. However, King David and Bathsheba committed the act of adultery. God commanded for children to honour their father and mother so it is obvious that God never intended for children to be legally separated from their father or mother. God warned against idolatry, dishonesty, and worshipping oneself including the sexuality and gender theories which are self-centred and narcissistic.

I am hopeful that the Anglicans in Ireland will follow the Scots. Africa is still living in the dark ages. Press Release Service June 8, 2017 at 5:11 pm With all respect to the Secretary General no resolution of the Lambeth Conference is binding upon the Anglican Communion and only expressed the opinions of the Bishops present at the Conference. We are a synodical church in which the laity, the deacons and the presbyters, in collaboration with their bishops, determine the doctrine, discipline and worship of their respective provinces. For the Secretary General of the Communion to make such a statement betrays a level of unfamiliarity with the synodical nature of our Communion. He should read the excellent set of essays published some years ago, ‘Authority in the Anglican Communion’, before he makes any further statements on the matter at hand.

Steve Colburn says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Doug Desper says: June 11, 2017 at 12:02 pm Sorry Donn, my spellcheck did not catch that error. June 9, 2017 at 12:02 pm Well, at least the Episcopal Church of Scotland is on board! They always were independent-minded folks. This goes against the Church of England ruling in the rest of Great Britain, including Wales and Northern Ireland. Who knows, maybe they are next, but the COE is trying to keep the peace with the dissenting provinces in Africa and South America. In my lifetime, I have seen the same kind of struggle with the ordination of women as Priests and Bishops, and have come to know some wonderful counselors and preachers as a result of that change. The full participation of women in our church leadership has been one of the most beneficial changes that I have seen, in my lifetime. Like our LGBT Brother and Sisters, women too were once a marginalized group, and the struggle for the recognition that we are all equal, as God’s own creation and his beloved children, has many parallels to this current struggle.If it hadn’t been for the Scottish Episcopal Church helping us during our American War of Independence, the Episcopal Church in the U.S.A. would never have been born. They provided two of the 3 required Bishops (the third was the only American Bishop), to create Apostolic Succession for the ECUSA. Bully for them, again! Let us remember, Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, that marriage as we know it today did not exist in Biblical times. It is an institution created long after the time of Christ’s life on this Earth and those of his Apostles. Remember also, Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, that Jesus made it abundantly clear, in his actions and teachings, that his mission was to bring the promise of New Life to the outcast, the outsiders, those who were downcast by the religious authorities that existed in his time on Earth. This New Covenant, created by Christ himself, between Christian believers and Christ as God’s representative, sent to teach and save us, is what separates us from the prevailing Jewish law of Christ’s time here on Earth, living among us. That is what should guide us, in all our thoughts, words, teaching, prayers and actions. Those who would hold fast to the teachings of the Old Covenant with God, created with the Prophet Moses, should consider themselves Jews, not Christians.As Christ taught us, I pray for all our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, that they will understand what was truly new and unique about Christ’s Gospel, and also for our Leaders, Primates, Archbishop, Presiding Bishop, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, and Lay Ministers, I pray that Christ’s message of the New Covenant will guide your actions and your prayers for us, as we are God’s children too, made in his image just like you. As Christ taught us, we are all one body, and as Christians, our duty is to minister to one another. Until such time as our entire Church and Communion makes Canon Law agree with Christ’s own teachings, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ who are left out in the dark, will continue to minister to one another, as Christ taught us to do, as our duty is to love one another, regardless of whether we agree with one another or not. I pray that everyone will accept this comment in that spirit, as that is how it was intended. June 9, 2017 at 12:29 pm Steve — while I agree with many of your sentiments one cannot stand on solid ground while ignoring how Jesus Himself clarified the candidates and purpose of marriage. His appeal back to Genesis 2 was deliberate and clear in the wake of thousands of years of humanity contriving many other options. If ever there was the moment and opportunity to redefine marriage it was then in the Matthew 19 setting with the religious leaders. He did not. He didn’t hesitate to reject divorce or adultery and called attention back to original design. His word to the religious leaders was not “go and do as you think best and most fair”, but instead “Haven’t you heard that in the beginning….”? We cannot take Christ’s generalized statements about fairness and love and raising outcasts and use them as a false equivalency on a particular subject (marriage) that was addressed with very certain clarity. When Christ asked “haven’t you heard…?” He knew that the religious leaders had, in fact, heard and known but chose to neglect the knowledge. By that example we should know better. Featured Events June 9, 2017 at 3:22 pm My reference to Christ is as He spoke while present and witnessed on earth (as recorded in the Gospels – Matthew 19). That is a past historical reference which does not negate His being alive. If you mean to imply that the Risen Lord altered His teaching on marriage since the days of the apostles then I would lean on that original witnessed account – one valued in our Articles of Religion and canons as Scripture “containing all things necessary for salvation”. The Mormons believe in an open canon where the utterances of their Prophet have equal weight to the Scriptures. I am under the impression that we do not believe that our General Convention has such an authority.

I strongly believe that we would find that we have much that we agree on, and I am praying for each of you, and in particular for my Bishop Diocesan, Dabney Smith, as our Church, and the wider Communion proceeds with their discernment on these things.

On a narrow interpretation of its behaviour over the issue of same-sex marriage, theoretically it has acted within its self-defined powers and to its own satisfaction. But it has has acted outside its religious powers in passing a so-called ‘law’ which contravenes God’s Unchanging Laws. The Word Of God remains supreme to genuine Christians. Does the SEC really believe that it has the authority to put itself above God’s authority? Has God given it this power? Or the Devil? Are there no sanctions against an institution that acts irresponsibly and contumaciously? Kendall Fields says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Peter George says: June 11, 2017 at 11:33 pm Do not compare homosexuality to women wanting to vote. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Collierville, TN Jan Adam says: June 9, 2017 at 9:40 am I am an outlier in many respects. I sense that sexual orientation should not be the breaking point for any relationship, particularly as regards unity in the Church. There is much validity to people being unsure about the “wrongness” of homosexuality – thus it should not be the defining issue for being a Christian. God will sort each one of us out, and each one of us at death will approach the nearer Presence with brokenness, whether as perceived by others or in fact through our imperfect walk with God. That said, I also sense that our Church has arrogantly gone a bridge too far with regards to redefining marriage. Through constant pressure from Integrity and the culture, including a bishop who flaunted his desire to “be a June bride”, our Church has been wearied and guilted into very questionable theology regarding marriage. Richard Hooker’s formula of Scripture-Tradition-Reason has been uprooted and replaced (in this discussion) with human impulse and a misguided sense of obligation to destroy in order to be seen as fair. We’ve been misled – from the very top. The so-called Marriage Study distributed throughout our Church is clearly predicated on how “marriage has evolved”, and therefore pleads that marriage should continue to be allowed to evolve. The mistake? Marriage hasn’t “evolved”, but humanity has pursued its own way – aberrations – in disregard to God’s design for family bonding as described in Genesis 2. We’ve been misled into another aberration because our own Marriage Study is laden with Scripture that talks mainly about relational virtues, but entirely omits the words of Christ Himself on the subject of Marriage. In looking at the human debris in history with humanity’s choices and preferences chosen over God’s, our Lord took that backdrop to reaffirm Genesis 2 as the norm for marriage. Humanity had tried it all: polygamy, marital slavery, adultery, and more, and to this Christ Himself said in Matthew 19: “Have you not read that the One who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” This plain teaching was entirely left out of The Episcopal Church’s Marriage Study as a redefinition of marriage was pursued. That is because it stands as a glaring obstacle; that Christ Himself supported Genesis 2 would not fit the redefinition. We have been misled from the top. This includes bishops who say that the change to marriage does not affect or touch “core” teachings, particularly about who Jesus Christ is. Excuse me, but when you ignore the plain word of the Lord on this matter you have denied Christ Himself. Yes, we can be conflicted about homosexuality, but we cannot be conflicted about what Christ calls a marriage. I am 100% certain that the voices of the present day who say “all none – none must” regarding accepting this change will turn to “all must”. I am also equally certain that there will be a hard push to revise the Prayer Book in order to canonize this mistake. Furthermore, it remains that those who pushed this redefinition have now started what they can never stop. Today’s evolution to redefine is to accommodate what is fair and loving with no parameters other than those subjective feelings. Now, what will be the next evolution? Society is already seeing 3 or more people living in a relationship – and if our “new standards” apply then we must evolve as a Church to bless multiple people in a relationship with each other. This error can and must be corrected. One thing is for certain — God will correct this error with our Church or without it. The question remains whether or not we will be consigned to the dust bin of history as a Church who threw tantrums until we just died away. Marriage Equality, Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service] The Scottish Episcopal Church voted June 8 to amend canon law to allow same-sex couples to marry in the church. The vote required a two-thirds margin in each house: bishops, clergy and laity. Clergy wishing to perform same-sex marriages will need to “opt-in,” according to a BBC report.Scotland legalized same-sex marriage in 2014. The Scottish church’s vote puts it at odds with most of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The General Convention of the Episcopal Church made canonical and liturgical changes allowing for marriage equality in 2015, following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage that same year.After the June 8 vote, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, issued this statement followed by a Q and A:“The churches of the Anglican Communion are autonomous and free to make their own decisions on canon law. The Scottish Episcopal Church is one of 38, soon to be 39, provinces covering more than 165 countries around the world.“Today’s decision by the SEC to approve changes to canon law on marriage is not a surprise, given the outcome of the vote at its Synod a year ago.  There are differing views about same-sex marriage within the Anglican Communion but this puts the Scottish Episcopal Church at odds with the majority stance that marriage is the lifelong union of a man and a woman. This is a departure from the faith and teaching upheld by the overwhelming majority of Anglican provinces on the doctrine of marriage. The Anglican Communion’s position on human sexuality is set out very clearly in Resolution 1.10 agreed at the Lambeth conference of 1998 and will remain so unless it is revoked.“As Secretary General, I want the churches within the Anglican Communion to remain committed to walking together in the love of Christ and to working out how we can maintain our unity and uphold the value of every individual in spite of deeply-held differences. It is important to stress the Communion’s strong opposition to the criminalisation of LGBTIQ+ people.“The primates of the Communion will be meeting in Canterbury in October. I am sure today’s decision will be among the topics which will be prayerfully discussed. There will be no formal response to the SEC’s vote until the primates have met.”Some Questions and Answers Q:  What does the change in canon law mean? A:   It removes the doctrinal clause which states that marriage is between a man and a woman.Q:  When will the changes come into force?A:  The changes come into force 40 days after the end of General Synod – in late July.Q:  Who will be affected?A:  This applies only to marriage within the Scottish Episcopal Church. The Church of Scotland – which is a separate entity – is also considering changing its laws on marriage but has not done so yet.Q:  What about the rest of the UK?A: The Church of England, the Church in Wales and the Church of Ireland are the other Anglican churches within the UK. The canon law on marriage in all three is unchanged: none is able by [canon] law to marry couples of the same sex and their teaching is the same as before.Q:  Will any measures be taken against the Scottish Episcopal Church now?A: The primates’ meeting in Canterbury in October will consider how the Anglican Communion should respond. No action will be taken before then.Q:  Isn’t this is a further sign that the Anglican Communion is bound to split?A: There is a very strong desire within the Communion to remain together – there is so much that we hold in common. The Task Group, which was set up by the Archbishop of Canterbury last year, is dedicated to maintaining conversation between us and restoring relationships and trust where they have been damaged. That work will continue.Q: What do you think of Gafcon’s plan to appoint a missionary bishop for ScotlandA: We note the planned appointment. We will not be commenting on it at this stage.

WATCH: Touching jersey ceremony for young debutant ahead of Hong Kong Sevens

first_imgThursday Apr 4, 2019 WATCH: Touching jersey ceremony for young debutant ahead of Hong Kong Sevens Reigning World Rugby Sevens Series champions South Africa go into the Hong Kong Sevens this weekend rejuvenated, after winning their first tournament of the season in the last round in Vancouver.ADVERTISEMENTHeading into the tournament, the Blitzboks are awarding a first cap to 19-year-old Angelo Davids. However, they have displayed quite a unique way of initiating him into the team, which they shared today.As head coach Neil Powell awarded the player his jersey, his teammates all placed a hand on his back, to show that they have his back when they are playing.Powell speaks in Afrikaans but you can read the quite touching translations on the video.“You are more than good enough to be here. You have more than enough talent to do your thing out there. The guys who are touching you now are the guys who will be backing you this weekend and who will help you every time you need them,” Powell said.ADVERTISEMENTSevens is a sport where a lot of confidence has to be placed in teammates, perhaps more than the 15s format of the game. This is a symbolic representation of the trust that players must have for one another, shown in quite a different way.Davids was earlier this week awarded his first training jersey in another show of camaraderie, as senior player Chris Dry stressed the importance of his achievement.With the tournament starting tomorrow, the Blitzboks have a mountain to climb if they are to retain their World Series crown from series leaders the USA, and a good finish this weekend is a necessity.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it , Sevens Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In Boston, a tribute to women’s resistance and fightback

first_imgPanelists, left to right, Charlene Xu, Noel Sanders, Aveann Bridgemohan, Andie Michelle.“Together We Rise! Global Women’s Fightback vs. Trumpism” was the theme of a powerful and uplifting International Working Women and Trans Women’s Celebration held by the Boston Branch of Workers World Party and the Women’s Fightback Network on March 24.Dedicated to celebrating women’s resistance and leadership in today’s struggles, the program placed special emphasis on defending Indigenous sovereignty and leadership of the global “Water Is Life” struggle, the Black and Trans Lives Matter movements, and the millions of immigrant workers and refugees facing Gestapo-like Immigration and Customs and Enforcement terror, including raids, detention and deportation.    .The soulful tunes of Nina Simone welcomed guests to this dynamic event co-chaired by Noel Sanders and Diva Williams, who raised the importance of unity and building a movement based on intersectionality and leadership of the most oppressed to advance the working-class struggle. Noel Sanders led a moving #SayHerName call-and-response tribute to several trans women of color who have been murdered by state-fueled violence in 2017. A moment of silence honored their cruelly taken lives.The audience also participated in an art-based segment honoring a longer list of trans women who were murdered in 2016. Local artist and educator Charline Xu facilitated this expression of how the complexity of lives are interlinked in many ways.Keynote speaker Mahtowin Munro, of United American Indians of New England and lead organizer for Indigenous People’s Day in Massachusetts, opened her remarks by intoning, “Black Lives Matter and Water Is Life.” She urged those gathered to see Standing Rock as “a victory which brought forth unprecedented unity.”Speaking of the struggle to defend land and water, Munro said, “For Indigenous people, we are caretakers of the land and water. They are part of our personal bodies and of our body politic as tribal people. In defending the land and water, we exert our inherent sovereignty as Native Nations.”Munro continued, “We need to work together and learn from each other and the struggles of the past, to follow the example of Standing Rock. The hundreds of those arrested include many youth and elders and many, many women.  As the water protector camps were finally cleared entirely in late February, one of the last arrested was Regina Brave, who is 80 and was also a veteran of the Wounded Knee takeover in 1973.“When I am talking about women, I want to explicitly say that I am including trans women. It is important to celebrate the resurgence of Two Spirit leadership that is occurring, with a strong Two Spirit presence at Standing Rock and many other places. Women and Two Spirit people have been bearing the weight of colonialism in so many ways, for so long.“There is a war against us. The war did not just start when Trump was elected. Immigrants, Muslims, disabled people, Black and Latinx and Asian people, Indigenous, trans and Two Spirit people — we must be in solidarity with each other.“In the spoken word segment of the program, urgent calls were made to acknowledge, accept and embrace one another. Several nonbinary and trans people shared their personal experiences through poetry and testimonial expressions, moving the crowd to cheers of support and a group hug.There was strong encouragement to continue facing fear in the current political climate and to continue striving together to build a transformative fightback movement led by the most oppressed. Affirmed was that Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian and Arab people, Muslims, women, LGBTQ and disabled people joining hands with trade unionists, employed and unemployed workers, Fight for $15 workers, students and youth can smash Trumpism.A panel of dedicated community activists, including Charlene Xu, Aveann Bridgemohan, Andie Michelle and Nathan Heathman, spoke to the importance of fighting school closings and austerity cuts to public education; the need to demand increased funding for addiction treatment and creation of safe injection facilities (SIFS) for loved ones in the opioid crisis; and the significance of teaching youth and community members to grow affordable and healthy food in “food deserts” and fight racist gentrification. Folks attending and participating ranged in age from 9 to 82. During the open mic, many spoke of their roots in Flint, Mich.,  Biloxi, Miss., the Dominican Republic, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cape Verde and elsewhere.This sharing of working-class solidarity across societally enforced boundaries is the struggle being won. One of the elders articulated how she has always responded to structural oppression: “Activism. It’s knowing what’s right in your heart and doing it.”On that note, the crowd vowed to continue building anti-fascist resistance in their communities and to put every ounce of effort into building unity for the Global General Strike this coming May Day.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
