Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Episcopal News Service – Charleston, South Carolina] Former Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga, who chairs the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC), says the Anglican Communion is still in the middle of painful struggles, but those struggles have made its members “think about who we are, what we are about, and not only think about it but actually talk about it and engage with it.”“So, one hopes then that we are more intelligent about our faith and our being,” Tengatenga said during a recent interview with Episcopal News Service.Tengatenga also spoke during the interview about the structure and importance of the ACC (the Communion’s main policy-making body), the possibility of an Anglican Congress and the influences on his religious life.ENS spoke with Tengatenga during his visit to the Episcopal Church in South Carolina’s 224th annual convention. He was the preacher for the convention’s opening Eucharist.Tengatenga was appointed in May as distinguished visiting professor of global Anglicanism at the University of the South’s School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee.[ooyala code=”drdmw0cjrfp8O-y-1-4O28OfNtgbUOcT” player_id=”d4a5625b85af485eb1fff640076c5be6″] December 23, 2014 at 3:04 pm As someone who has lived in a microcosm of the Communion for over thirteen years now, and who has had numerous contacts with people and churches around the Communion, I agree that the Communion is not dead. Quite the contrary. When we begin to realize anew what we have in our hands to effect transformation around the world by proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ through word and example, and working together for justice and peace, people will come to a new perspective.The Toronto Congress was organized by my predecessor as Bishop in charge, Stephen Bayne, and MRI had a huge impact on the churches of the Communion. We really do need another, but we also need a Primates Meeting, a Lambeth Conference, and yes, the ACC. I thank God for Bishop Tengatenga’s leadership. December 12, 2014 at 12:42 pm Gerard: A few non-negotiables from the mouth of Christ himself (“doctrine” if you will) are the point of contention:1). From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”2). “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”3). ““Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”4). “I am the resurrection and the life.” … and many others from the mouth of Christ. These are core (if one believes that Jesus Himself had something to say about Himself that trumps human reason and subjective truth).A careful observer in the Episcopal Church will notice that these points are not entirely settled in the sermons, teachings, and messages of notable leaders as though some new revelation supersedes the faith once delivered…. or worse that Christ didn’t “mean what He said”. I defer to C.S. Lewis who noted that you must either believe that Jesus’ claims about Himself are the ravings of a lunatic, or that He is who who said, and said what He means. He can’t be both. That’s the fallacy of those who mangle “The Middle Way” in an attempt to bring synergy of Jesus’ claims and their own limitations (biases and blind spots often blamed on the Holy Spirit). There are truths out there. We’re supposed to be people who have seen and heard.

The last few years with the Church riven by our various disagreements have been scary. It helps to hear from one who knows the communion so well and doesn’t evade its problems, but still has hope and confidence that–broken and faithless as we’ve been at times–God still holds us and is at work through us.

We’re talking about a globalization which should resonate with catholicity but it doesn’t. The current globalization is hegemonic of a particular ideological kind. So the mission now of the church, I believe, is reconciling that and turning people back to God, to being reconciled with themselves, reconciled with nature, reconciled with the economic order.How have you enjoyed this role since you took the helm of the ACC in 2009? I imagine there have been both moments of joy and frustration.Former Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga, chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, preaches Nov. 7, 2012 in the Auckland, New Zealand Holy Trinity Cathedral during the closing Eucharist of the ACC’s 15th meeting. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSThe church of God lives on in spite of our squabbles and misunderstandings and divisions. So the joy of being able to see the church catholic alive at work in the midst of all the confusion is priceless. And also I’ve now had two different archbishops [of Canterbury] with two different styles, each one so committed to lead the church and the people of God in the direction that will truly proclaim the Gospel … and continuing to build on that which we have received through Christ and through his church.Of course, the pain is the continued declaration of cessation of relationships. I hear it – it hurts to hear that – and [I hear the] blames left, right and center about what causes that and where it’s going to be. I’ve yet to see the physicality of that because the theological reality of the body of Christ remains, albeit strained, but it is watching that strain that is painful and stressful because it eats on you when you see brother turning against brother and sister turning against sister, and beginning to demonize each other and forgetting the truth that we are saints.Do you believe the Anglican Communion is in a healthier place than it was a decade ago?Yes, because sometimes people confuse painlessness and health. I mean, I used to run once upon a time when I was young, and running in Texas heat in midday doing 10 kilometers just for the fun of it hurt, but it was fun and it was healthy. I think that’s where we are. We are in the middle of painful struggles, like I said, but it has made us think about who we are, what we are about, and not only think about it but actually talk about it and engage with it. So, one hopes then that we are more intelligent about our faith and our being.Communion for those of us who have always been Anglican is something we’ve always taken for granted and that’s why it’s been difficult to define what holds us together. Paper doesn’t, law doesn’t, even sacraments don’t. It’s something beyond words that holds us together and that is Christ himself and his very spirit. So struggling to articulate that, which I hear all over the place, is for me a healthy sign.And even for those who have chosen to leave, guess what they’re called? Anglican this, Anglican that. We are struggling to actually articulate what it is that we hold so dearly and can’t let go. So if I really don’t want this, I would quit and when I quit I wouldn’t want to be identified with it in any way, shape or form. So, why do you quit and want to continue to be identified with something?It means there is something significant about the nature of the church and the struggle to find ourselves and our soul and where God is moving us to. If that is painful, I would want to think that it is painful in the kind of exercise pain [way] where you feel that healthiness of coming out of that struggle of self-identification and self-understanding in God. Whether someone will come and fully take [the] temperature and say ‘this is healthy,’ I always believe that’s God’s business, not human business. We can see signs, we can do something about them but it’s God’s business to actually declare the health of God’s people.With centuries-old church structures being challenged and facing reform, do you think the Anglican Consultative Council, in its current make up, is the right model for the work it and the Communion have to do in the 21st century?The Anglican Consultative Council last met Oct. 27-Nov. 7, 2012, mainly at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland, New Zealand. The ACC includes bishops, clergy and lay people. One to three persons come from each of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, depending on the numerical size of each province. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSCurrently, I would want to say yes and I don’t think it can be anything else from what it is now, in the sense of … we have a model. Now that we have that model, how do we perfect it and make it do what we intend for it to do in order to organize ourselves?We can’t call ourselves ‘Communion’ and not have a physical reality of experiencing that. The only place we experience that – and I want to emphasize that – the only place currently where we experience that is the ACC. There is never any time when the Communion comes together in a visible form, physical representatives of each and every province, and each and every order, in the way that we organize ourselves [other than the ACC]. The question is how do we make it work better. How do we make it be that body that we have intended it to be?I think for a long time the Communion in its life has lived as though [the ACC] didn’t exist. Not that it didn’t exist, but we lived as though it didn’t; it didn’t matter. I think that is why I am saying the church is in a healthier place now because it is actually looking at itself and the systems that it set in place to be able to fully minister and to fully reflect its catholicity and to fully reflect the Gospel in a way that is respectful of the uniqueness of each member individually, the uniqueness of each member in orders, uniqueness of each province – each church – because we are a communion of churches. It is this that facilitates that uniqueness and yet that unity at the same time.Certainly, I am not saying that it is perfect, not only because I think perfection is for the future and is that which we work at every day, but because I think it’s a living organism. And was there ever a time when the church was continuously the same? No. From Jesus’ time we’ve been in transformation . . . morphing into what we have become.I’m not sure we can do much better than where we are now. It would take a few decades to get anywhere because we work in triennials and sometimes in other places biennials in the different provinces. So, even if we were to say overnight we want to change this, it would take a minimum of six years even to define what it is that we want before we can begin to ask [if] we have defined it, now do we accept it. Then another six years before we can accept it.A group of bishops from around the Anglican Communion recently met in New York and their communiqué asked whether it was time for another Anglican Congress. What is your reaction to that idea?It’s always been time for another congress. The first one was in 1908 and as a Communion we intended not only to have another one, we intended to celebrate a century of that with the Lambeth [Conference] 2008, but the finances were wanting in that process. It failed us.I was part of the planning of the last Lambeth Conference and our initial charge was to plan a congress – a gathering – alongside Lambeth Conference, which was almost an exact mirror of 1908.Then, of course the next [Anglican Congress after the 1908 gathering] happened in ’54 in Minneapolis and the last one in Toronto [in 1963] and the idea was, that given the Toronto timing which was five years before the next Lambeth Conference, to be a possible pattern in which we could do congresses every five years.Interestingly enough, I was dealing with this in my class earlier this week and talking about jamborees. I know there is a cynical view of jamboree but if you ask anyone who has been to a jamboree, given that the language that comes from the Boy Scout movement, which incidentally began in 1908, it has transformed their outlook not only of the Scouting movement but of their own personal being. That is what this is about.“Communion for those of us who have always been Anglican is something we’ve always taken for granted and that’s why it’s been difficult to define what holds us together,”says Bishop James Tengatenga, who chairs the Anglican Consultative Council. Photo: Diocese of Texas[Anglican Congresses] are seminal in the sense that we think afresh, unencumbered admin[istration]. Admin is important and I don’t think, like some people have been saying, simply maybe we should replace the Lambeth Conference and just have congress instead. I think that’s a fallacy, really. You can’t do that; you will create another Lambeth-type thing because you can’t have an organization and not have leaders meeting and doing admin. [But there isn’t time there in those type of meetings] to get down to the roots of what we believe and what we may be looking at in a seminal way that congresses have done.[Congresses] have marked our life . . . 1963 made us reflect on what does it mean to engage in mission in a multinational, multicultural body and in an unequal society where some have and some don’t. And is it true that some have and some don’t? Or is it the question that some have something else and others have something else, and together we are therefore mutually responsible to one another and mutually interdependent? [The 1963 Anglican Congress] gave us the language of mutual responsibility and mutual interdependence …We became attentive and attuned to the fact that we are partnered with one another, but had never quite defined what that was, and how long it can be and what form it takes, and the givers and takers, and so forth. And we [had] never figured out what it was to be in mission so those that were involved in mission simply went to places to do what they thought was important to them. We can almost say that what we are working through is what we said in ‘Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence.’ And mutuality continues to be questioned; responsibility to one another [continues to be questioned].So these [congresses] are seminal to the way we look at ourselves and engage in God’s work. I don’t think there will ever be a time when we don’t need one. I think the question is can we be responsible enough as Communion to figure out to organize one, foot the bill and make it work, and not turn it into showmanship.You were at the center of a controversy last year when your appointment at Dartmouth College was withdrawn over comments you had made about homosexuality. What did you learn from that experience or are you still learning from it?I don’t think there will be a time that I exhaust the learning from that experience; it’s fraught with all kinds of things. It was a painful experience.Basically you find that people are still suspicious of the ‘different,’ whatever the different is, and, on the basis of that, make judgment calls that don’t hold substance, but unfortunately if you are so inclined as to believe yourself rather than the truth that’s facing you then you end up doing stuff.And also learning to appreciate the love of God’s people because the response I got in my support after that experience, I cannot even begin to tell.And also then obviously learning to be in the wilderness because at that point then, what next?And then Sewanee came next. What is your focus at Sewanee?Teaching mission studies – missiology – and teaching it, looking at it from my perspective, from the world I live in as a recipient – a product of – mission, and an agent of mission … It’s basically like, well, here’s time to share my story with Jesus and his work and what it has been, but in an academic sense and shaping people for ministry. And also talking about global Anglicanism.It is a privilege, really, to be able to share my lived experience of the catholicity of the church and the way the councils of the church work. All of us imagine we know, but what we know is only what we have experienced or heard within the context of the controversy today, but to think that the Communion is bigger than that and is older than that. We may not have articulated it the same way, but we have seen it unfold before our eyes from way back when.[I also ask about] how is that Anglicanism today an expression of God in the world, in the participation in God in the world, an expression of but one experience of the people of God in his catholic church. Being able to talk about that and also discovering with the students the humility of an Anglican stance, which is, from day one, Anglicanism never considered itself to be the full and sum total of the church catholic. It has always seen itself as but one expression of the church catholic and making us so disposed, therefore, towards the unity of the people of God and working towards it.– The Rev.

It is a habit of people who are involved in the so-called “Instruments of Communion.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, people at the center of the Communion like to think that they run a global church.But the Anglican Communion is not one church. It is a family of independent churches.None of the Instruments of Communion, including the ACC, has any authority at all over any Communion Province. This is something that we should all remember.

That’s the price we pay.Shane paid the ultimate price for just walking home.But what price has the Geoghegan family and fiancée, Jenna paid in their collective loss?You can never calculate that.1739 days after the popular rugby player was shot dead yards from his home, justice was served and a terrible case was closed.An Garda Siochana in Limerick has tackled serious crime head on and won.On Tuesday last, John Dundon sat in court, disregarded etiquette and showed no remorse except to instruct his counsel to say to the court that he deeply regretted the death of Shane Geoghegan. All of this while he listened to rap music on headphones so he would not react to the judgement he believes is based on a tissue of lies. Pathetic.However, Mary Geoghegan, Shane’s mother, was the antipode of Dundon’s character and manner as she painstakingly sat through three separate trials to hear the evidence of how her much-loved innocent son was murdered.She didn’t need headphones to keep calm, she has strength of character, resilience, patience and the support of a city, a county and a country behind her.Simply put, she said “the facts of the case speak for themselves”.

All of them have reportedly died due to hunger. In another incident, a train reportedly started from Surat district in Gujarat for Siwan in Bihar on 16.05.2020 and reached Bihar on 25.05.2020 i.e. after 9 days. The Commission has observed that the contents of the media reports, if true, amount to gross violations of human rights. The aggrieved families have suffered irrevocable loss. The state has failed to protect the lives of the poor labourers on board the trains. Accordingly, it has issued notices to the Chief Secretaries of Gujarat and Bihar, Chairman, Railway Board and Union Home Secretary calling for a detailed report in the matter. The Chief Secretaries of the Government of Gujarat and Bihar are expected to specifically inform as to what steps were taken to ensure basic facilities including medical facilities for the migrant labourers who boarded the trains. The response from all the authorities is expected within 4 weeks, positively. Issuing the notices, the Commission has observed that the Rail network in India is the largest in the world and well equipped with the modern technology, trained staff and other infrastructure.”A train getting late due to bad weather etc. for some hours is always considered beyond control of the authorities but trains getting lost during journey, reaching unexpected destinations and taking more than a week to reach its scheduled station is hard to believe and require a thorough investigation into the matter”, observed the human rights panel headed by former Chief Justice of India, H L Dattu. It further observed that the poor labourers, who have already suffered a lot in a distant places and are desperate to reach their homes to meet family members.”It is a matter of concern for it as they are being subjected to such a treatment by the Railway authorities, which borders around barbarism. The poor labourers cannot be treated in such an inhuman manner just because they are poor and the government has paid for their tickets. Any shortcoming on the part of the government agencies cannot be covered under excuse of unprecedented situation amid countrywide lockdown”, it added. “The trains have started operating and the ticket charges are being borne by the central and the state governments but the sufferings of the poor labourers are not seemingly coming to an end. There have been several media reports stating that in many cases, the labourers are being called to board the train. They are brought to the railway stations in buses without maintaining social distancing. They are put to wait for hours without any arrangements of drinking water, food, shaded shelter and toilets for them. The female labourers, old aged persons, ill persons, small children and specially abled persons are reportedly suffering a lot. Many times the poor labourers have been told to go back as the trains got cancelled”, the Commission further observed.Next Storylast_img read more

On Tuesday, the Court granted Ranaut time till February 5 to clarify if she will be approaching the civic body for regularization of the “illegal portions.” Her plea for interim relief was earlier rejected by a CityCivil Court in Dindoshi in December 2020, which observed that the alterations were in “grave violation of the sanctioned plan.” The court had however granted her six weeks to approach HC. On Tuesday, Justice Prithviraj Chavan extended interim protection till Friday, “in the interest of justice,” after Senior Advocate Birendra Saraf, appearing on behalf of Ranaut, sought time to take written instructions if she would want to apply for regularization. He had initially argued accused the BMC vendetta. “I realise the BMC is being nice and reasonable here,” he submitted. The BMC represented by senior advocate Aspi Chinoy and advocate Joel Carlos did not object to his prayer for time, but clarified that the actor could apply for regularization only if she accepts the BMC’s notice is right and withdraws her suit. “You can’t challenge the notice and also apply for regularization,” Chinoy submitted. Saraf assured the court that on the next date he would either argue against the notice or state that the actor is seeking regularization. “A stitch in time saves nine,” Justice Chavan noted about the delay in seeking regularization. The BMC had issued Ranaut a notice followed by a demolition order under the Mumbai Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act in 2018 for the unauthorized portions. The actor approached the City Civil Court against the order, which refused her interim relief. “She has covered the sunk area, duct area, common passage as per her own convenience and included FSI-free into habitable area. These are the grave violation of the sanctioned plan for which the permission of the Competent Authority is required,” the Court noted . In her petition before the Bombay High Court Ranaut claimed, that none of the alleged unauthorized construction has been carried out by her. And the flats are exactly in the same condition as when she was given possession. Kangana further claimed that other flat purchasers were also given identical notices by the BMC in March 2018. “This is one of the indications that the flats in the suit building were given by the developer in the very condition in which the MCGM found them, when they came for inspection, prior to issuing notices,” her plea stated. The High Court will now hear her petition on Friday. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
