Uganda: Anglicans walk hundreds of miles to remember martyrs

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Smithfield, NC Renovations underway at the Anglican Shrine to the Uganda Martyrs in Namugongo. Photo: Hannington Sebuliba[Anglican Communion News Service] For the last week all roads in Uganda have been leading to the Namugongo Anglican site where more than 20 Anglican Christians were brutally murdered more than a century ago. Thousands of pilgrims have made the journey over hundreds of miles to reach the shrine of the Christian martyrs remembered on the anniversary today (June 3).The martyrs were killed at the order of the king of Buganda kingdom, Kabaka Mwanga. On June 3, 1876 he ordered the killing of all the newly converted Christians. The martyrs included Anglicans, Roman Catholics and Muslims. All the Christians killed had been converted a few years after the arrival of missionaries from the U.K.The Roman Catholics were the first to recognize the 22 victims as martyrs and commemorate the day on which they were killed. Three popes have visited the Roman Catholic shrine where the Christians were killed and the martyrs have now been recognized as saints.Anglicans also visit a dedicated shrine on the site and hold prayers to mark the 23 martyred for their faith. It is now an established pilgrimage place where thousands of Anglicans travel each year on June 3.The Rev. James Kato, a member of this year’s organizing committee, said, “As a sign of showing solidarity with martyrs, the pilgrims walk from their homes to the shrine established at the site where the Anglican martyrs were killed.”More than 200,000 Anglican Christians were now camping at the compound next to the shrine and many more are still on their way. “Many Christians walked from within Uganda, others have arrived from neighboring countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan and many more are coming,” Kato said. The biggest number will be brought in by vehicles on June 3.Security is tight at the shrine. The Roman Catholic shrine is located just under a mile away from the Anglican site and is equally packed with pilgrims. At both shrines there are pilgrims from Europe and the U.S. and organizers are expecting greater numbers this year than ever before. On Wednesday, Uganda’s president, Yoweri Museveni, visited the sites and addressed the pilgrims.

Hamilton Jones says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Diocese of Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime, speaking here Sept. 22 at the House of Bishops meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska, is one of six bishops to sign a letter to senators urging opposition to an Affordable Care Act repeal bill. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Fairbanks, Alaska] Six Episcopal bishops have written a letter to 10 U.S. senators, urging them to vote against the latest Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the health care law also known as Obamacare.The letter, dated Sept. 24, comes as the House of Bishops holds its fall meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska. Diocese of Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime is one of the bishops who signed the letter to senators. One of its recipients is U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican from Alaska whose vote was seen as crucial for passage of the so-called Graham-Cassidy bill, though on Sept. 25 the bill seemed headed for failure.“We urge you, Senators, in the spirit of fairness and proper process, to stand up against a bill that would cause such disruption and chaos to healthcare for millions of our citizens, especially the most vulnerable among us,” the bishops say in their letter. “As Christians and as faith leaders in our respective states, we ask that you stand firm on the democratic process that serves us all. Access to such healthcare is crucial to maintaining the social safety net that allows our communities to flourish.”Joining Lattime in signing the letter are Bishop Kirk Smith of the Diocese of Arizona, Bishop Stephen Lane of the Diocese of Maine, Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of the Diocese of Ohio, Bishop Thomas Breidenthal of the Diocese of Southern Ohio and Bishop Michie Klusmeyer of the Diocese of West Virginia.The letter is addressed to Murkowski; Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska; Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Arizona Republicans; Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine; Sen. Angus King, I-Maine; Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia; and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had said he intended to bring the bill to the floor for a vote this week, but those hopes have all but slipped away. After McCain and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, came out earlier against the bill, Collins announced Sept. 25 that she, too, would vote against it, seeming to indicate it does not have the 50 votes needed to pass.The bishops’ letter cites an estimated cut of $23 billion in federal health care spending over nine years in the bishops’ five states. It also singles out part of the legislation that would reverse an expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare, potentially affecting lower-income Americans.“Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to respect the dignity of every human being,” the bishops say. “It is our responsibility to challenge you, our elected leaders, to work toward justice and equality for the welfare of all people, not only those who can afford health insurance.”The Episcopal Church has long advocated for policies that support helping Americans access affordable and comprehensive health care based on a long series of General Convention resolutions. Its Episcopal Public Policy Network released a policy alert on Sept. 20 that called on Episcopalians to contact their representatives and ask them to oppose the new legislation.“The Graham-Cassidy bill lacks the benefits of informed public hearings with experts and thoughtful bipartisan compromises, and does not address the concerns highlighted in earlier ACA repeal efforts,” EPPN’s alert said.The bill, named after Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, is the latest in a series of Republican attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature legislation, which he signed into law in 2010 after its passed Congress with no Republican support.Murkowski, who was one of three senators to vote against an earlier Obamacare repeal bill in July, hasn’t said yet how she will vote. Republican leaders have added incentives to the new bill targeting Alaska, including a provision that would exempt Native Alaskans from losing Medicaid coverage when the program is rolled back.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] P.J. Cabbiness says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ September 26, 2017 at 5:25 pm Obamacare needs to be improved in a thoughtful bipartisan manner. We do not need to repeal it nor do we need to move any fury towards a single payer European socialist model. It is time for the moderate republican and democrat “center” to unite on this and other issues. The radical elements of each party are pushing us into chaos.

What is needed is to recognize the enormous damage inflicted on our society by decades of so-called liberal policies which at every level have permeated human relationships to such an extent that virtually anything goes. It’s not gun control that’s needed but self-control and our institutions (including the Episcopal Church) seem unwilling to accept that. The future looks bleak indeed.

No place seems to be safe any more – malls, cinema theatres, schools, universities, churches, airports, etc.If I recall correctly, many years ago, a UK official wondered if there was something wrong in their education system that enabled British Muslims to become a jihadist.Perhaps similar questions need to be asked of this society – the role that media, movies, educational system, religious sermons, conduct of law enforcement and government officials play in making US a violent society. Larry Waters says: [Episcopal News Service] Episcopal bishops are arranging for services of lamentation at churches around the country in the wake of the shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 students and faculty members dead, and the bishops and other church leaders are calling for political action against gun violence to end “these lethal spasms of violence in our country.”“The heart of our nation has been broken yet again by another mass shooting at an American school,” Bishops United Against Gun Violence, a coalition of more than 70 Episcopal bishops, said in a statement released Feb. 16 following the Ash Wednesday massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.A former student, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, has been charged with 17 counts of murder after authorities say he opened fire with an AR-15 rifle in hallways and classrooms before ditching his gun and ammunition and blending in with students to escape. He was found and arrested on a city street later in the day.Fourteen of the fatal victims were students. A football coach, athletic director and geography teacher also were killed.Bishops United offered condolences to the families, singling out by name Carmen Schentrup, a 16-year-old student who was a youth group leader at St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church in Coral Springs.The Coral Springs church posted news of Schentrup’s death Feb. 15 on Facebook.“Please keep our entire church family in your prayers,” the Facebook post said while asking the public to respect the family’s privacy.The Diocese of Southeast Florida, which includes Parkland and Coral Springs, released a statement Feb. 15 expressing grief at the “horrific massacre of innocents.”“There are no words that can adequately give voice to the madness and the violence done to those gunned down, and to their families and friends so cruelly robbed of those they loved,” the statement says. “There are no words to describe the pain of loss and grief, of shock and horror, of outrage and anger, only the anguished cries that well up from the very depths of our being. There are no words to make sense of what makes no sense, and in the face of such senseless killing we are numbed and rendered speechless.”Bishop Peter Eaton followed up Feb. 16 by saying Christians’ faith will help guide their response to this tragedy, and “we bring more than our prayers.”“We bring our longings and convictions for a different future,” he said in his written statement on the shooting. “What happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is not the world as it ought to be, or as it needs to be, and we who follow Jesus accept the responsibility for being partners with God to bridge that gap between what is and what could and ought to be.”Also Feb. 15, Washington National Cathedral Dean Randy Hollerith released a written prayer asking God to comfort those affected by the shooting spree while alluding to the political debates that typically are ignited by such killings.“Forgive us, Lord, when our leaders fail to take action to protect the most vulnerable from the dangers of gun violence,” Hollerith’s prayer says. “Forgive us, Lord, for the times when we lack the courage and political will to work together. Open our eyes and our hearts to work across our divisions to end the plague of gun violence.”Those sentiments were echoed by Bishops United Against Gun Violence.“We must reflect on and acknowledge our own complicity in the unjust systems that facilitate so many deaths, and, in accordance with the keeping of a holy Lent, repent and make reparations,” Bishops United’s statement says before calling for political engagement by Episcopalians.The bishops specifically call for legislation banning the AR-15 and similar weapons, as well as high-capacity magazines and so-called “bump stocks,” the device used by the shooter who killed 58 people at an outdoor music concert in Las Vegas in October.“We understand that mass shootings account for a small percentage of the victims of gun violence; that far more people are killed by handguns than by any kind of rifle; that poverty, misogyny and racism contribute mightily to the violence in our society and that soaring rates of suicide remain a great unaddressed social challenge,” Bishops United’s statement says.“And yet, the problem of gun violence is complex, and we must sometimes address it in small pieces if it is not to overwhelm us. So, please, call your members of Congress and insist that your voice be heard above those of the National Rifle Association’s lobbyists.”The group of bishops also plans to announce a schedule of services of lamentation, with details to be released on its Facebook page.And Bishops United invited Episcopalians to join in a period of discernment, including in July at General Convention in Austin, Texas, when the bishops will gather for prayer outside the convention hall each morning.Bishops United Against Gun Violence was formed as a response to an earlier school shooting, the December 2012 slaughter of 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.Since then, Bishops United has released statements with increased frequency responding to deadly mass shootings, including the Oct. 1 massacre of 58 people in Las Vegas and the Nov. 5 shooting that left 26 dead at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH February 26, 2018 at 11:51 am Apologies accepted Cynthia though I should point out that ‘bots’ and ‘trolls’ come from all sides.Ironicly, the Bishops’ statement was incredibly premature. It was as if they were a bot or troll!Like a bot or troll their statement should be dismissed because no thought goes in to cutting and pasting talking points. The Bishops would have better served the Church and their reputation had they been more deliberative before issuing their statement. That’s what effective “leaders” do.A review of the facts that have since come out reveal that law enforcement, or more correctly, incompetent law enforcement, was largely to blame for the tragedy in Parkland. When the laws we already have are not enforced, it’s pointless to call for more laws. That’s called “common sense.”I don’t want to get started on a conversation about the left and law enforcement for that, I fear, will cause my head to explode!

Heacock’s comment. It is not the rifle, it’s the person using the rifle. We need security at our schools. In my grammar school 100 years ago, all the doors were locked and every visitor had to come to the principal’s office to get to classrooms. Even if the visitor managed to “escape” the principal’s office, doors to all the classrooms were locked and the entrance to the area where all the classrooms were was locked. Also, volunteer teachers could be trained to handle weapons, in case someone was able to get through a locked door. We need to look at security in Israel and how they handle evil, terrible people. And yes my heart is breaking for the ones affected by this terror. And as the old saying goes, if guns are ever outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. I wish evil could be eradicated; it cannot.

Are we not supposed to bring peace to the world and to beat our swords into plowshares instead of advocating mass overexposure to lethal weapsons that are not managed or controlled as much as automobiles?It may be true that evil “cannot” be eradicated. But we can and do take action to reduce motor vehicle collisions by making highways and cars safer and by raising DUI standards. There are NO comparable (reasonable) restrictions on gun ownership or use in this country. Why? Would you let typhoid fever or TB or polio go unregulated? I have to meet minimal training and education standards to obtain and keep my California driver’s license. I have to purchase liability insurance for the car that I drive. At the very least, we could require similar (minimal) standards for all gun owners and purchasers. Not to mention lifting the congressional ban on using federal funds to even **study** gun violence in our weapons-addicted society. How many more needless deaths will it take until we, as believing Christians, act on the Bible’s imperatives to make peace and lay down our arms instead of worshipping icons like the Second Amendment?

What surprises will be revealed at The State of the City…

first_img Reply “President Washington began this tradition in 1790 after reminding the Nation that the destiny of self-government and the ‘preservation of the sacred fire of liberty’ is ‘finally staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.’ For our friends in the press, who place a high premium on accuracy, let me say: I did not actually hear George Washington say that.” – Ronald Reagan, State of the Union January 26th, 1982 TAGSHighland ManorMayor Joe KilsheimerState of the City Previous articleBirthday parade brings out the best in ApopkaNext articleChampion of Choices highlight Wolf Lake week Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR   Sargent provided this response: Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia The state of the city address is going to be on a Monday at 8:00 am tomorrow on a cold wintery day? I would rather stay under the warm covers in bed….. I like to try to keep up with city happenings, but even I am not THAT gung-ho! Hopefully, it will be recorded on audio, or the media will tell us all about it! My visions are going to be sugar plums dancing in my head………..ZZZZZZZ…..LOL December 11, 2016 at 3:44 pm December 11, 2016 at 3:36 pm Next Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom State of  the City Preview“The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation. … In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom to the free—honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail. The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just—a way which if followed the world will forever applaud and God must forever bless.”– Abraham Lincoln, State of the Union December 1st, 1862Opinion/AnalysisBy Reggie Connell   I love the State of the Union Address. I have watched every one since the Reagan administration. It is an historic opportunity for a President to give an account of how the nation has fared over the previous year, and more importantly a chance to lay out their plan for the future. It involves almost every part of federal government weighing-in from cabinet positions to staff and a chance for the White House writers to really shine.My first Apopka City Council meeting was a little less than a year ago as Managing Editor of The Apopka Voice. At the end of the meeting during public comment someone asked Mayor Joe Kilsheimer about a “State of the City” address. Kilsheimer said they were working on it.I was excited to hear this news. I didn’t realize a mayor gave a state of the city address. I sent a followup question to Apopka Public Information Officer Robert Sargent, and he confirmed they were working on it, but did not have a date. Every few months since then I have asked about the State of the City, until finally at the City Council Workshop in November, Kilsheimer announced the date – December 12th. December 11, 2016 at 6:28 pm “…We should all want a smarter, more effective government. And while we may not be able to bridge our biggest philosophical differences this year, we can make real progress. With or without this Congress, I will keep taking actions that help the economy grow. But I can do a whole lot more with your help. Because when we act together, there is nothing the United States of America can’t achieve.”– Barack Obama, State of the Union January 24th, 2012We won’t know the answers to any of these questions until tomorrow when Kilsheimer takes the stage and delivers this historic speech. The content, surprises, and announcements will be unveiled then. One thing is for certain, the speculation and conversations will not end with the conclusion of his address. 4 COMMENTS Reply Let me throw out a wild card here……the Highland Manor will be moved and relocated to the Edward Field area for a community center??? The citizen who suggested a state of the city address at the city council meeting was Isadora Dean. Now, as to the question as to who will write the speech, I have no doubt that it will be Mayor Kilsheimer who will author the speech, no one else. This event will not be one of those events like where Melania Trump speech mirrored Micelle Obama’s words of her speech, LOL! No, the mayor will give his own thoughts and words, no doubt, in my mind, about that………  “Here’s what I can tell you about Monday’s presentation: The State of the City address is important to recognize Apopka’s accomplishments during the past year and to share the many transformative changes coming in 2017 and beyond. This is an exciting time for our city when we are improving public services, creating new city facilities, inviting new and expanding business and improving the quality of life for residents. Mayor Kilsheimer is working with city staff to research information, compile data and write Monday’s address. We plan to present a synopsis of city projects and goals. We also will have some big announcements.”Okay… not exactly direct answers to my questions. But I understand. They want to keep it close to the vest. They have surprises in store. They want to control the message. I can understand that, even respect it. But I am a reporter. I’m curious. I want to know, and I want my readers to know as well.And the only thing left to do in the light of limited information as a reporter is to change hats and become an analyst. It’s time for a little healthy speculation on tomorrow’s speech. 1. Who is the primary author of the speech? Who else worked on it as far as writing the address?2. How many departments weighed-in? Will the speech cover each department or is it more of a general outline of the state of the city?3. Has Mayor Kilsheimer delivered a State of the City address before? If not do you know when the last State of the City was delivered?4. Why did you decide on December 12th? And why did you decide on 8AM?5. Why did you choose The Highland Manor over City Hall as a venue?6. How many words/pages (some measurement) is the address?7. Do you or Mayor Kilsheimer (or both) have any comments or thoughts on the State of the City address?8. Are there any excerpts or a theme you can release? Is there a title (such as “setting Apopka up for success” type of phrase you will use).9. What issues will be addressed in the speech? December 11, 2016 at 6:14 pm Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia “We know big government does not have all the answers… The era of big Government is over. But we cannot go back to the time when our citizens were left to fend for themselves.
