‘Messy’ process is working, budget committee leaders say

first_img‘Messy’ process is working, budget committee leaders say PBF decides to keep diocesan asking at current level Rector Smithfield, NC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ [Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] The process of developing a budget for the Episcopal Church’s 2013-2015 triennium has been typically messy, but it is working, according to the chair and vice chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PBF).“I don’t think it has not been a failure; I just think it’s been messy,” said New York Deputy and PB&F Chair Diane Pollard, who added that “sometimes you have to go through mess to get to the other side.”Diocese of Maine Bishop Steve Lane, who is PBF’s vice chair, agreed.“Doing it this way as a matter of policy, which is what it is, means that every time [we do it] we have this mess,” he said. “I think people are looking for a more orderly, more on-going, more long-term process.”That desire, Lane said, was the motivation behind a move July 6 on the part of some members of the House of Bishops to vote “no” on resolutions that they said bogged down convention or put the funding cart before the budget horse.Convention considers resolutions that include requests for money from the future budget at the same time PBF is crafting the budget that has to include them. When a resolution with funding implications is approved by both bishops and deputies, it goes to the budget committee which must decide how and, in some cases, if to account for the request in the budget.“I believe that the votes in the House of Bishops yesterday were a protest against the manner in which the Episcopal Church does budgeting,” Lane said. “The complaint is about the parallel process between the work of Program, Budget and Finance on the one hand, and the work of all the rest of the committees presenting resolutions to be funded. They go along side by side, and they only meet in the budget proposal, which leaves everyone dissatisfied.”PBF has made some decisions already, including choosing to base the primary portion of the budget’s income on the current 19 percent asking from the church’s 109 dioceses and three regional mission areas.Lane said the committee heard “strong support” during an income hearing (video here) on July 6 for leaving the asking at the 19 percent level. “And we heard two folks talking about their [diocesan] efforts to do more and do better [than that percentage] and urging the rest of the church to do likewise,” he said.Each year’s annual giving in the three-year budget is currently based on a diocese’s income two years earlier, minus $120,000. General Convention’s 2010-2012 budget was based on a 21 percent asking in 2010, 20 percent in 2011 and 19 percent in 2012.The committee is scheduled to present its proposed budget July 10 at 2:15 p.m. to a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies in the deputies’ hall. Lane has said that because the budget document must be to the printer by 3 p.m. local time July 9 at the latest, the committee will have its 2013-2015 proposed budget finished by noon that day.A vote in each house is set for July 12, the last day of convention. The budget takes effect Jan. 1, 2013.Both Pollard and Lane said budgeting planning needs to start earlier than the current process allow. “Many of the conversations we’re having today should have happened 18 months ago,” Lane said, as Pollard nodded in agreement.“One of the immense problems with our way of doing budgets is the limited time which people have to absorb the information and then make conscious and deliberate decisions about priorities,” he said. “Doing it in five days is impossible for everybody.”A large portion of PB&F’s struggles could be helped by a “strong budget committee” which included members of the Executive Council that would operate throughout the triennium, Pollard said.However, she cautioned, the process of developing a budget to fund the Episcopal Church’s mission and ministry “can’t be perfectly orderly, because if it’s perfectly orderly then people are not having the opportunity to talk.” Thus, she said, “you have to expect some mess in it, but it could have been a little more orderly.”The traditional mess, they both said, was exacerbated this year the multiple errors in the proposed draft budget that the church’s Executive Council gave to PB&F in January (as is required by church canon (in Canon I.4.6) and the General Convention’s Joint Rules (in II.10 10 (a)).Because council was not allowed to change anything in the budget once it had been given to PBF, the members issued a memo from it April meeting, saying that the version of the proposed draft budget released to the church “is not exactly” the one it passed.Then on June 1 Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls and Treasurer to General Convention Kurt Barnes released an annotated version of council’s budget.And, three weeks later, Jefferts Schori proposed an alternative budget that she said was “more clearly based on missional strategy” than the council’s budget.Add to that a plethora of criticism and suggestions in the blogosphere and on various listservs and both Pollard and Lane said PBF wound up with more information than is often the case.The committee decided July 4 to use the template of the presiding bishop’s budget, which is based on the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission. It has “taken the best work of Executive Council,” in Lane’s words, into that template along with other information.This evening (July 7) from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PBF will hold a hearing on expenses in the 2013-2015 budget in Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.“The work of PBF is not complete,” Lane said. “We urge people to attend, we urge people to raise their concerns and hopes for our consideration.”— The Rev.

If there is a specific amount of money expected to come in and the committee is trying to balance a budget they someone adds to the costs they are left to come up with where to cut. It should be that for all proposals not in the budget they have to come up with what will be cut or raised for passage. Money should be left at the local level to do what only the people there know are the most pressing needs. There are way too many struggling parishes to keep expecting them to up the amount passed up the ladder.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Smithfield, NC Después de amplia consulta con el liderazgo de la Iglesia Episcopal y continuas discusiones tanto con el Rvdmo. William Love de la Diócesis Episcopal de Albany como con el Comité Permanente de la Diócesis Episcopal de Albany, el obispo primado Michael Curry ha dictado la siguiente Restricción sobre el Ministerio del obispo Love:Oficina del Obispo PrimadoRestricción parcial sobre el ministerio de un obispoEl Rvdmo. William H. Love, Obispo de AlbanyEn las últimas semanas, he sabido de —y he analizado— una Carta Pastoral y una Directriz Pastoral a su diócesis emitida por el obispo Love de la Diócesis de Albany el 10 de noviembre de 2018, respecto a la continua aceptación de la Iglesia del uso de un rito experimental para la celebración de matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo en la Iglesia en conformidad con la Resolución B012 de la Convención General en 2018. Copias de la declaración del obispo Love y de la Resolución B012 pueden encontrarse aquí y aquí. En esa declaración, el obispo Love expresa su creencia de que el matrimonio de parejas del mismo sexo es contrario a la Escritura y a la “enseñanza oficial” de esta Iglesia y en consecuencia instruye que los matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo no pueden ser celebrados por ningún clérigo que resida canónicamente en su diócesis o que tenga licencia [para ejercer en ella], y exige pleno acatamiento al Canon XVI de la Diócesis de Albany que prohíbe al mismo clero de “oficiar en”, “facilitar” o “participar en” tales matrimonios; prohíbe el reconocimiento de tales matrimonios en esa diócesis y prohíbe el uso de la propiedad de la Iglesia como el sitio de tales matrimonios.Luego de sostener discusiones con el obispo Love,  emití un comunicado en respuesta parcial el 12 de noviembre de 2018, una copia del cual se encuentra aquí. Representantes de mi oficina se han reunido desde entonces con miembros del Comité Permanente y con el Canciller de la Diócesis de Albany.Estos documentos y discusiones constituyen la base de la decisión temporal que ahora tomo respecto al ministerio del obispo Love como Obispo de Albany. Si bien estoy persuadido de la sinceridad y buena voluntad del obispo Love en estas difíciles circunstancias, estoy convencido de que la intención de la Convención General fue que la Resolución B012 fuese obligatoria y vinculante para todas nuestras diócesis, particularmente a la luz de su disposición de que un obispo diocesano “que sostenga una posición teológica que no acepte el matrimonio para [tales] parejas” y confrontado por el deseo de una pareja del mismo sexo de casarse en la diócesis de ese obispo, “invitará, según sea necesario, a otro obispo de esta Iglesia a brindarle apoyo pastoral a la pareja, al miembro del clero que participe y a la congregación o comunidad de culto a fin de cumplir con la intención de esta resolución de que todas las parejas tengan un conveniente y razonable acceso congregacional local a estos ritos”. Estoy por tanto persuadido de que, como Obispo Primado estoy llamado a tomar medidas para garantizar que el matrimonio de parejas del mismo sexo en la Iglesia Episcopal está a disposición de todas las personas en la misma capacidad y bajo las mismas condiciones en todas las diócesis de la Iglesia donde el matrimonio de personas del mismo sexo es legal conforme al derecho civil.Reconozco que la conducta del obispo Love a este respecto puede constituir un delito canónico conforme al Canon IV.4(1)(c) (“cumplir con las promesas y votos hechos durante la ordenación”) y al Canon IV.4(1)(h)(9) (“cualquier conducta impropia de un clérigo”), y que [pruebas de] esa conducta se le ha[n] remitido al Rvdmo. Todd Ousley, Obispo para el Desarrollo Pastoral and Gestor para asuntos disciplinarios concerniente a los obispos. En consecuencia, a fin de proteger la integridad de la norma y el proceso disciplinario de la Iglesia y, por ende, el buen estado y bienestar de la Iglesia, y en conformidad con  los Cánones IV.7(3), (4), y IV.17(2), impongo por la presente la siguiente restricción parcial al ejercicio del ministerio del obispo Love:Durante el período de esta restricción, al obispo Love, actuando individualmente,o como obispo diocesano, o en cualquier otra función, le está prohibidoparticipar en manera alguna en el proceso disciplinario de la Iglesia en laDiócesis de Albany en cualquier asunto tocante a cualquier miembro del cleroque implique la cuestión del matrimonio de parejas del mismo sexo.Ni participará en ningún otro asunto que tenga o pueda tener el efecto de penarde alguna manera a cualquier miembro del clero o del laicado o a unacongregación de culto de su diócesis por su participación en las disposiciones oparticipación en un matrimonio de personas del mismo sexo en su diócesis o encualquier otra parte.Esta restricción entra en vigor inmediatamente y se mantendrá hasta que se resuelva cualquier asunto del Título IV pendiente contra el obispo Love. En el ínterin, yo o quien me suceda, de extenderse este asunto después de mi mandato, revisaremos periódicamente la continua necesidad de esta restricción y la enmendaremos o levantaremos según proceda.Este documento se le presentará al obispo Love en el día de hoy y por la presente se le informa de su derecho a presentar cualesquier objeciones a esta restricción en conformidad con el Canon IV.7.(Rvdmo.)

Left groups commemorate Bolshevik Revolution

first_imgLarry HolmesAbout 250 people gathered in Manhattan on Nov. 7 to celebrate, commemorate and analyze the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution.  The meeting was held at the Center for Workers Education in Manhattan’s financial district, steps away from where the bronze Wall Street bull proclaims the power of finance capital.Speakers from a large number of left groups helped organize the event.  There were written greetings from 14 nationalities and Skype messages from Russia, India and Ukraine. The event was live-streamed through Facebook.While the speakers had their own views, common themes ran through the salutes to the Russian Revolution, including the need to struggle for unity and to respond to the national oppression of Black and Brown people.A partial list of the organizations involved in the meeting included BAYAN, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Workers World Party, Marxism Leninism Today, Harlem Coalition Against War, Party of Communists USA, Party for Socialism and Liberation, United National Antiwar Coalition, International Action Center, U.S. Friends of Soviet Peoples and the International League of Peoples Struggles.Several nonaffiliated Marxist academics spoke and chaired, including Anthony Gronowicz and Manny Ness. Dr. Anthony Monteiro stressed the revolution’s impact on the colonized world.The meeting was opened by Kirbie Joseph, an organizer of the Justice for Akai Gurley campaign and struggles against police brutality.Michela Martinazzi of Freedom Road Socialist Organization raised Lenin’s contribution on national oppression and building a party.Ray Laforest of the Haiti Solidarity Network connected events to the impact of the Haitian Revolution.Brian Becker of Party for Socialism and Liberation described the impact of the loss of the USSR and the contradictions and limitations of imperialism.Angelo D’Angelo of U.S. Friends of Soviet Peoples explained how as a teenager seeing a society without bosses, the Soviet Union affected his whole life.Larry Holmes, first secretary of Workers World Party, described how the Russian Revolution lifted consciousness of the oppressed globally. He raised defending the most oppressed workers — precarious workers, prisoners, LGBTQ people — as part of the struggle for a higher level of unity, while keeping focused on socialist revolution as “our endgame.”Vijou Bryant provided a rousing revolutionary ending. The evening concluded with signing of “The International.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Music video for song “M.I.A” still imagePhoto courtesy of Evan WilkinsTwo Horned Frogs are among the four-member, Atlanta-based group called 8 Way. The group was started by sophomore film, television and digital media major Evan Wilkins and his cousin, Tyler Hinton. Soon after, their group expanded to include a friend from another university, and later Ezra Flores, Wilkins’ roommate at TCU.  “I feel like being a part of 8 Way grounded me at TCU – this group was something I knew I wanted to be a part of when it was introduced to me,” said Flores, a sophomore graphic design major. “I’ve always surrounded myself with original and creative individuals who aren’t afraid to chase their dreams, so it was only natural.”The group came to the name 8 Way after Wilkins and Hinton created a few songs together; Hilton goes by the name 8 Ban$ and Wilkins’ stage name is Young.Wilkins’ love for music began when he started creating covers using an app on his computer. “I wondered what I would sound like if I were to create a cover, so I downloaded an app and started creating music in my closet,” Wilkins said. “I had no microphone, and I would just sit there singing into the computer, but then I began to like how I sounded.”Cover art for the single “M.I.A”Photo Courtesy of Evan WilkinsNow, 8 Way has moved from creating music in closets to releasing their own tunes for the public. Sophomore psychology and criminal justice student Kayla Pfisterer was one student who enjoyed the single, as well as Young as an artist.“I love his music, and ‘M.I.A.’ was so catchy,” Pfisterer said. “I enjoyed the lyrics and concept of the song. Not only is Ev’s music great, but his passion and the effort he puts into the music makes me want to continue to listen.”When Wilkins decided to make music, he wanted it to be original and have a unique sound.“I want to be myself in my music,” he said. “I want to have a core group of people around me who I knew wanted to make creative, original content.” Being a graphic design major, Flores creates album cover art for the group. He believes being a part of this group helps develop himself as a visual artist.“Being a part of 8 Way has allowed me to express myself creatively and further develop skills that I believe will help me professionally and skills I don’t get from the classroom,” Flores said. “I hope to network, learn and push my creative work through 8 Way.”Wilkins said the bond between him and Flores continues to grow as they work on ways to better themselves and improve their skills.Cover art for the single “Misfits”Photo Courtesy of Evan Wilkins“We are like family,” Wilkins said. “We look out for each other, and we have created our own support system that allows us to strive to get better.”8 Way is open to adding more members to the group. Young hopes to release an EP at the start of 2020, and he has a single that is set to be released this November titled, “Misfits,” for which Flores created the cover art.
