Birthday celebrations on hold for John Barclay

Barclay hopes the many Kiwis with Scottish connections will turn out to support Andy Robinson’s side as they battle with England, Argentina, Georgia and Romania for the two quarter-final spots from Pool B. “As a bare minimum our aim would be to get into the quarter-finals and then re-evaluate the situation,” he says.First Scotland have two warm-up games at Murrayfield, against Ireland on 6 August and Italy on 20 August. As one of the players Robinson withdrew from club rugby in April and May to help their World Cup preparations, Barclay is itching to play again.“It was exciting just to get back into contact work in training during July,” he says. “Warm-up games are billed as friendlies but when people have been training in the gym for a couple of months and then get out onto a pitch it can be pretty brutal! Every team will want to win and players will want to put their hand up for selection.”So as well as opponents, Barclay’s rivals within the Scotland squad had better be on their guard.This article appeared in the September 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK Barclay challenging the Irish defenceHow did you spend your 25th birthday? Did you have a party, or a fun day out, or maybe you just went to the pub? I’m sure I did. John Barclay won’t be making merry. Instead, he hopes to be preparing for one of the biggest games of his life as he hits the quarter-century on 24 September – the day before Scotland meet Argentina in the World Cup. But having a birthday overshadowed by a rugby match is nothing new to the openside. Indeed, his 21st birthday fell the day after his Test debut for Scotland, during the last World Cup, so he was more concerned about recovering from the 40-0 defeat by the All Blacks than blowing out his candles. And if Scotland can beat Argentina next month it will set them on course for a place in the World Cup quarter-finals, and who could ask for a better present than that?Barclay’s plans for his birthday pan out like this: “There will be a captain’s run and then you have to relax for most of the day, just chilling out with your feet up,” he says. “I like to wander out for a coffee with some of the lads. There won’t be too many beers!”When Scotland’s squad for the 2007 World Cup was named, Barclay was the only uncapped player. An outstanding age-group flanker who had been training with the national squad since just before his 18th birthday, he was delighted to be included, but had mixed feelings after the tournament.“It was incredible to experience a World Cup, especially in France where they really embraced the tournament and the crowds were great for every game,” he says. “Yet I ended up feeling frustrated because I was away for a long time and only played one game. People forget how long you spend preparing for a World Cup too. We had a countdown clock on the wall of the gym and when I first went in there I think it was two months to go before the tournament. But I had to remember I was lucky to be in that position and there were other players who were desperate to be where I was.”Ally Hogg was the first-choice openside back then but Barclay got a start when the then Scotland coach, Frank Hadden, controversially rested many front-line players for a pool game against the All Blacks, preferring to concentrate on beating Italy to secure the runners-up spot in the pool. “There were mixed emotions for my first cap because it was great to get it but we were beaten by 40 points,” says Barclay. “The papers were saying it was disgraceful to put out such a side against the All Blacks. I was disappointed that the Italy game seemed like the be-all and end-all of our tournament. We were so focused on beating Italy that we then missed a chance to win the quarter-final.”Barclay has come a long, long way since then. He has started every Scotland Test since the end of November 2009 and put in Man of the Match-winning performances against Argentina last summer and South Africa last November. “It certainly seems like a long time ago that I got my first cap,” he says. “I’ve matured and I’d be disappointed if I wasn’t a far better player now. Physically I’m in a lot better shape. The way rugby is played has changed too, with the new law interpretations.”This will not be Barclay’s first trip to New Zealand, as he spent a few months there in 2005 on a Scottish scholarship programme, playing with the Marist St Pats club in Wellington and the Wellington Academy. “The trip was a real eye-opener to what a huge deal rugby is over there,” he says. “I was there when the Lions were there and 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all anyone was talking about in the pubs and shops was rugby. The adverts on the cereal packets all have rugby players in them. They are real superstars. Playing club rugby and being involved in the Wellington Academy I could see the numbers they have, and the quality they have in reserve is frightening at times.“It’s a rugby-crazy country so if I get the chance to be in that environment again and go back four years after winning my first cap against New Zealand, that would be an incredible experience.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

Hotshots: Young Ulster rugby star Conor Joyce

first_imgWho do you admire?Stephen Ferris is an idol of mine, and I also look up to Jamie Heaslip.How was your first season with the U20s?The Six Nations was a major step up in terms of physicality and speed. The collisions are much harder than schoolboy rugby. I played with a lot of the guys for the U19s and we’re a close bunch.You captained your school team and the U19s. Did you enjoy the role?Yes, it’s something I’d like to do again in the future. I’m vocal on the field and in the changing room and in team meetings, but I also try to lead by example.RW verdict: Joyce may be in Ferris’s shadow now, but he’s learning from one of the great Irish back-rowers. Cutting loose: Joyce is tackled by Wallabies during the 2013 Junior World Cup When did you start playing?I played at Solihull School and at my local club, Old Silhillians, until I was about ten.You grew up in England, so what made you want to play for Ireland?All my grandparents are Irish and I come from a very Irish background, so I’m an Irishman at heart. I played for England U16 because there’s not an Irish team at that level, but then I played for Irish Exiles, Youths, U18, U19 and U20.Where do you play now?I’m in Ulster rugby’s academy. I was picked up by the province after playing for Ireland U18.Which is your preferred back-row position?I like to play No 6 but I can move if needs be. I played No 8 in the Junior World Cup games against New Zealand and Australia, and  at school too, but I played No 6 for the Exiles.

Elaine Heath, les presentó un reto a los obispos. Heath es profesora de la cátedra McCreless en la Escuela de Teología Perkins de la Universidad Metodista del Sur, en Dallas, y cofundadora de la Fundación para la Teología Misional.“Habló acerca de ir a los vecindarios y participar con las personas allí donde se encuentran, donde viven”, dijo él durante la conferencia de prensa, añadiendo que el reto para los obispos puede ir más allá de los barrios y aplicarse a una renovada participación con sus asociados ecuménicos y otros obispos.A lo largo de la reunión, los 148 obispos asistentes escucharon ponencias o modos innovadores de llevar a cabo la misión, el nuevo Programa de Asociación Diocesana y sobre la labor del Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal. Los obispos también discutieron temas tales como la violencia de las armas de fuego, las asociaciones ecuménicas y la paz y la reconciliación en Tierra Santa.Además de Heath, entre los visitantes invitados se contaban la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings; el obispo Gregory Palmer y Mary Anne Swenson, de la Iglesia Metodista Unida; el obispo Tilewa Johnson, de la provincia de África Occidental; el obispo Miguel Tamayo, quien fuera diocesano de Cuba y Uruguay; el obispo David Rice, de la diócesis de Waiapu en la Iglesia Anglicana de Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia; Suheil Dawani, obispo anglicano en Jerusalén; el Dr. Hisham Nassar, coordinador de Dawani para la atención sanitaria en la Diócesis de Jerusalén y el Oriente Medio; el rabino Steve Gutow, presidente del Consejo Judío para las Relaciones Públicas, y el canónigo David Porter, director de reconciliación del arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby.“Me sentí conmovido por todas las ponencias, pero en particular las de aquellos que se encuentran fuera de nuestro propio contexto”, dijo Jefferts Schori. Contar con la presencia de Dawani, Nassar y otros invitados extranjeros, agregó ella, “nos hizo recordar en un nivel más profundo de nuestra propia conexión y compromiso con los conflictos que tienen lugar en el mundo. Seguimos siendo llamados a intervenir en los conflictos de nuestro medio así como en [los que ocurren] en todo el mundo”.El 15 de noviembre, la Iglesia Episcopal auspiciará y producirá un foro en torno a un tema fundamental de nuestro tiempo: “Cincuenta años después: el estado del racismo en Estados Unidos”; y en abril se celebrará en Oklahoma una cumbre nacional sobre la violencia de las armas de fuego —ambos son “maneras importantes de hacernos transcender nuestro contexto inmediato”,  subrayó Jefferts Schori.La Oficina de Relaciones Públicas de la Iglesia Episcopal emitió partes diarios en los que proporcionaba un breve resumen de las discusiones y actividades de los obispos en Nashville.El 24 de  septiembre, el tema del último día fue “Moverse misionalmente: perspectivas episcopales”. La jornada incluyó una mesa redonda en que se usaron perícopas bíblicas como marco de referencia.La tarde del 23 de septiembre se dedicó a un diálogo con los metodistas unidos acerca del significado de la plena comunión y de cómo los asociados ecuménicos pueden valerse de las raíces comunes para trabajar juntos misionalmente de formas nuevas.  El tema del 23 de septiembre  fue “Moverse misionalmente: aplicaciones prácticas” con una mesa redonda en que estuvieron presentes el Rdo. Tom Brackett, misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para la plantación de iglesias y el ministerio del redesarrollo; la Rda. Mary Frances, de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América y la Rda. Becca Stevens, fundadora de Thistle Farms.El 22 de septiembre, los obispos visitaron varias iglesias de la zona. Jefferts Schori presidió [la eucaristía] y predicó en la iglesia catedral de Cristo en Nashville.El obispo Stacy Sauls, director de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, presentó una ponencia sobre el Programa de Asociación Diocesana el 21 de septiembre, en el cual explicó que el nuevo nombre para el personal denominacional, “La Sociedad Misionera” [The Missionary Society], era la simplificación del nombre corporativo de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera” [Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society].“Ello representa el empeño de reorientar la labor del personal denominacional para trabajar con las diócesis y ser facilitadores de la misión”, dijo Sauls, según uno de los partes diarios. “Esto sucede en la medida en que el personal [denominacional] ofrece (1) apoyo al ministerio diocesano, (2) utiliza recursos para este ministerio [y] (3) establece conexiones a través de la Iglesia”. Sauls afirmó que esto contrastaba con una “oficina central corporativa”, modelo de Iglesia donde el dinero fluye hacia arriba y los programas fluyen hacia abajo.“Mi impresión es que está siendo muy bien recibida; sólo he oído reacciones positivas sobre la iniciativa”, dijo la Obispa Primada cuando le preguntaron  cómo había sido recibido el Programa de Asociación Diocesana. “Es una gran oportunidad para el personal denominacional de ser siervos, de [aplicar] formas que servirán de manera más eficaz a toda la Iglesia”.Muchos de los obispos recibieron notas manuscritas de sus representantes del personal “y estamos encantados con eso¨, dijo el obispo Dean Wolfe, de la Diócesis de Kansas.Lo que más me entusiasma, dijo Ousely, es que “el personal denominacional se integra a la corriente de las diócesis”. Ya no se trata, pues, de un foco pragmático, sino más bien de que el programa de asociación presenta una manera organizada de facilitar las interconexiones y las relaciones, afirmó.Una discusión del 20 de diciembre sobre la misión de tender puentes se concentró en la labor de paz y reconciliación en Tierra Santa e incluyó ponencias de Dawani, Nassar, Gutow y Porter.La reunión incluyó eucaristías diarias y oficios de oración. El grupo de cónyuges y parejas de los obispos se reunieron al mismo tiempo que la Cámara de Obispos.

Federal government studies Occupy Sandy movement

first_img Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Volunteers unload donated material at the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York shortly after Hurricane Sandy. Photo: Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew[Episcopal News Service] The Occupy Sandy network that sprung up in the days after Hurricane Sandy devastated vast stretches of New York and New Jersey has caught the attention of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which says it is looking to broaden future disaster relief efforts.However, not everyone is taking that explanation at face value even though they say the report does a good job at outlining how well Occupy Sandy has worked.Occupy Sandy tapped into the organization and volunteer power of Occupy Wall Street which had led a multicity protest movement centered on economic inequality just more than a year before Sandy hit. The report, titled The Resilient Social Network, calls Occupy Wall Street a “planned social movement” while it characterizes Occupy Sandy as “neither planned nor expected.”The Episcopal Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, New York, in the Diocese of Long Island, quickly became the second major Occupy Sandy supply-distribution and volunteer-training hub. The activity at St. Luke and St. Matthew complemented the work begun a few days earlier at St. Jacobi Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn.“In the days, weeks, and months that followed, ‘Occupy Sandy’ became one of the leading humanitarian groups providing relief to survivors across New York City and New Jersey,” the report notes. “At its peak, it had grown to an estimated 60,000 volunteers – more than four times the number deployed by the American Red Cross.”“Unlike traditional disaster response organizations, there were no appointed leaders, no bureaucracy, no regulations to follow, no pre-defined mission, charter, or strategic plan.  There was just relief.”That relief effort out of St. Luke and St. Matthew continued even after an arson fire two days before Christmas 2012 caused major damage.“In the Diocese of Long Island, where this movement took physical root in several of our churches, we were fortunate to have a bishop who encouraged Occupy Sandy in every way possible,” the Rev. Michael Sniffen, rector of St. Luke and St. Matthew, told Episcopal News Service. “In places where our bishops and clergy gave in to fear and risk aversion in the aftermath of the storm, the work of well-intentioned, skilled neighbors was often thwarted by lack of staging and organizing space. Many of our churchyards, hallways and unused parish halls sat empty during a time when they were desperately needed.”Long Island Bishop Lawrence Provenzano said the diocese is “very proud of its involvement with Occupy Sandy and the results.”“This is what incarnate love looks like!,” says Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York on its Facebook page. The nave began being used as a distribution hub for supplies shortly after Hurricane Sandy stuck. Photo: Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew“From a religious standpoint, this was the church at its best, an example of the Gospel in action,” he said in an e-mail to ENS. “This report is really an acknowledgment of how a cooperative effort – between the church, government entities, the private sector, and the wider community – can improve disaster response in the future. It is also an acknowledgement that cooperative decision-making, planning, and execution can be a model for success; this model, in my mind, is as ancient as the church itself.”In addition, Sniffen said, the church communities “that truly opened themselves to aid neighbors by any means necessary also opened themselves to spiritual awakening.”Research for the report was conducted between June and August 2013. The report is dated Sept. 30, 2013 and was recently released by the Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute.In its introduction, the report notes that Occupy Sandy was a “difficult research subject for many of the same reasons it succeeded in helping so many communities in New York and New Jersey: its membership and infrastructure are fluid, it has no elected leaders, and it conducted autonomous relief activities across a large geographic area.” Occupy Sandy is called a “humanitarian offshoot of Occupy Wall Street” in the report, whose authors also describe it as “a social movement, not so much a tangible group.”The report at one point categorizes Occupy Sandy as an “emergent response group 2.0” of the kind that often spring up spontaneously after disaster strikes. These groups are different from “traditional response organizations,” the report notes, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency or the Red Cross. The “2.0” refers to the fact that groups such as Occupy Sandy used social media to publicize, organize and coordinate its work.A small group of Occupy Wall Street began discussing the anticipated storm a week before it hit the East Coast over social media, the report says. When the storm hit on the night of Oct. 29, 2012, member of that group began share damage reports and discuss how to help and whether there was interest in beginning a relief effort.“Seemingly out of nowhere emerged a volunteer army of young, educated, tech-savvy individuals with time and a desire to help others,” the report says.However, the report also notes that Occupy Sandy’s “horizontal organizing structure” was not without its problems. While “there was no need to seek permission to do something” and thus people in need were served quickly, the report says “without leaders, there was less oversight” and less accountability. The accountability issue raised difficulties for some traditional response organizations in terms of their own accountability, according to the report.Purpose of the report questionedThe authors said their “primary purpose in conducting a case study on Occupy Sandy is to provide the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with a basic understanding of an emerging type of grassroots relief collective so that it might enable government to work in a unity of effort with such groups when the next disaster strikes.”However, the report also describes reluctance on the part of some Occupy Sandy participants to talk to a group connected with the Department of Homeland Security about their work. Most of the people and organizations the researchers contacted “were willing to speak quite candidly, but many respectfully declined our request,” according to the report. The report does not suggest the reason for that reluctance however, the Department of Homeland Security has acknowledged, by way of more than 200 pages of heavily redacted documents, that it joined other law enforcement agencies to monitor Occupy Wall Street.Sniffen echoed some of that concern, saying that “the DHS’s interest in the Occupy movement and Occupy Sandy in particular raises red flags regarding the freedom of communities to organize for good without being treated as suspicious.”“That being said, the findings of this report are encouraging,” he added. “The report is clear in its analysis that Occupy Sandy was effective where larger, more bureaucratic organizations were not. The movement’s significant role in helping communities recover is now undeniable. The analysis of the ability of horizontal ad hoc groups to be effective change agents in the world should be read, marked, learned and inwardly digested by The Episcopal Church as we continue our own conversation about internal restructuring.”The Rev. John Merz, the vicar of Church of the Ascension in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, who helped organize churches to open their facilities to respond to Sandy, also expressed concern about the DHS institute’s attention to Occupy Sandy. He noted that the organization’s website says it was created as a “dedicated, not-for-profit institute to provide the federal government with analytic capabilities to support effective counterterrorism-related decision-making and program execution.”The department has always regarded Occupy Wall Street “as a form of active domestic terrorism albeit in the early stages of gestation” and thus it took notice when some participants “reformed around relief work with such astounding capacity,” Merz said.Even though the study is what Merz called “appreciative,” it “is by nature defensive, given the mission of the institute and the larger mission of DHS” and is centered on the issue of “power and how it is exercised.”“I did not see anywhere in the report analysis of how many soup cans churches or civic groups managed to donate or how many people made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches … its concern with power in this case is that it was employed so effectively by a group that it has had under surveillance and was working for structural change and justice,” he wrote in an e-mail to ENS.While the report might be used to help non-governmental organizations and governmental aid agencies adopt new practices, Merz said, it is more likely that it will be used to “keep a thumb on social grassroots movements and networks.” He predicted that the department and the U.S. military “may use the report to incorporate some of the OWS and OS network practices into their own ‘counter terror’ practices if they would serve in curtailing the power of people to organize on a grassroots level.”That opinion, Merz acknowledged, “may put me in the minority in the Episcopal Church who seem to think Empire is only something to be ruminated on and preached about in relation to Jesus and the Romans.”Merz and Sniffen were both involved in Occupy Wall Street and were arrested Dec. 17, 2011 after they and retired Episcopal Bishop George Packard entered a fenced property – owned by Trinity Episcopal Church, Wall Street – in Duarte Square in Lower Manhattan as part of Occupy Wall Street’s “D17 Take Back the Commons” event to mark three months since the movement’s launch.The report says other traditional response organizations were initially guarded about coordinating their work with Occupy Sandy. For example, the report describes an invitation-only telephone conference call in early November 2012 “amid the fog of the response to Superstorm Sandy” during which participants heard someone identify themselves as “this is Occupy.”“Conversation stopped,” the report says and representatives of other relief agencies later told researchers that they wondered why Occupy Wall Street was present.The Occupy Sandy person, whose name is not disclosed, was asked to explain his or her presence and the person replied that Occupy Sandy was “part of Occupy Wall Street but not directly associated with it,” according to the report.“‘At that point, we all became very guarded in what we said,’ the official told us,” the report continues. “Personally, and here she said she could not speak for the group, she perceived that the uninvited caller was a protestor and remembers thinking ‘we know what we are doing here, they just do not get it.’”The report’s authors conclude that Occupy Sandy not only eventually convinced the unnamed official that its participants “get it”; it also convinced local communities, the mainstream media and those 60,000 people who signed on as volunteers.– The Rev.

He also raised the need to address some of the Province socio-economic problems.“Poverty continues to be a major problem for our country and hence the need for investment projects in our various dioceses,” he said. “We also need to become self-reliant as a Church but in order to achieve this we need the support of our various partners to help build capacity.”The Primate also spoke of the need to address the socio-political situation in the country. “There is a lot of violence in parts of the country and so we need to work with our neighbouring countries to help promote peace,” he said.Abp Isingoma said theological education continues to play an important role in the Church and that they will continue working towards improvement of various infrastructures including support towards the Anglican University in Congo.Abp Henri Isingoma is the third Primate and Archbishop of the Anglican Church of the Congo. He studied at the Boga Institute and at the Nyankunde Institute, where he graduated in 1977. He has a degree in Theology and Human Sciences from the Superior Institute of Anglican Theology and a Master Degree in Theology from the Evangelical Theology Faculty of Bangui, Central African Republic.He first served as Bishop of Katanga from 1997 to 2007 before being elected as Bishop of Boga in 2007, a position he held until 2009 when he was elected as third Primate and Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Congo. He also serves as Bishop of Kinshasa.The Primate has since called for support and prayers in order for unity to prevail in the Church. He said: “All Anglicans need to work hand in hand to help build our church. We need to identify and address our common challenges as a church and help promote dialogue.” Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Washington, DC By Bellah ZuluPosted Aug 25, 2014 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Anglican Communion, Rector Martinsville, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Bath, NC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Tags Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Jobs & Calls Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs center_img Rector Collierville, TN Featured Events Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Leon Spencer says: Rector Belleville, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit an Event Listing Submit a Press Release Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Albany, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Lisa Fox says: An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Smithfield, NC This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS August 26, 2014 at 4:50 am Abp Isingoma served on the Governing Council of Anitepam, the African Anglican theological education network, and he was a delight to work with, a thoughtful and gentle spirit.
