The Executive Council is required to manage the budget for the church, submit a budget to General Convention for the next triennium, and make annual reports to the church of receipts and disbursements and a statement of all trust funds and properties. It also serves as the board of directors of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, the Episcopal Church’s corporate entity.Members may be appointed as liaison persons to the church’s interim bodies – the commissions, committees, agencies and boards. Bishops are appointed to those bodies by the presiding bishop, and clergy and lay members are appointed by the president of the House of Deputies. The Executive Council usually meets three times a year.Candidates offered brief biographies in the General Convention Blue Book report as part of their nominations for election to Executive Council. Those biographies follow.Joseph S. FerrellJoseph S.

He served on the Legislative Committee on Constitution in 2006 and 2009, and on the Legislative Committee on Privilege and Courtesy in 2003.Anita P. GeorgeAnita P. George is a member of Church of the Resurrection in Starkville, Diocese of Mississippi.“My strongest competence is that of a communicator. Using that attribute I am able to engage in dialogue with individuals and groups across our broad and diverse church,” she writes.She is past chair of Executive Council’s Anti-Racism Committee. “I bring a variety of voices and perspectives to an important decision-making body of our church. I find that I am closer to God when I speak to and listen to God’s people across the continuum of life experiences and varieties of geographic locations. I understand the structure of our church, having held local, diocesan, provincial, and broader church responsibilities. On Executive Council’s Standing Committee, Local Mission and Ministry, I can discern, interpret, and articulate congregational and diocesan implications of legislation and budget decisions. I have exhibited competence in advocacy as well as in the planning and implementation of tasks. In my professional experience, I have demonstrated competence in organizational development and program evaluation, as well as budget development and management.”Fredrica Harris ThompsettFredrica Harris Thompsett is a member of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Falmouth, Diocese of Massachusetts, and is the Mary Wolfe Professor of Historical Theology at Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.“Having filled a partial term on Executive Council (since 2011), I am willing and committed to continuing to serve. I am a teacher, author and continuing learner who has taught at EDS and other seminaries for over 30 years. I now live in semi-retirement on Cape Cod. I bring experience, expertise, and energy as an Episcopal historian and Anglican theologian on parish, diocesan (Standing Committee, Commission on Ministry, various task forces, General Convention Deputy), national (Standing Commission on Lifelong Christian Education, ecumenical task forces), international Anglican (Inter-Anglican Theological and Doctrinal Committee) levels, and Episcopal Church Center staff. I am a contributing member of the Steering Committee of the Chicago Consultation and an anti-racism trainer. My latest book is ‘Born of Water, Born of Spirit’ (co-authored with Sheryl Kujawa-Holbrook). I am passionate about supporting the baptismal ministry of laity and clergy alike, small congregations, sharing educational resources, distance learning, and making sane decisions that benefit the church’s many communities.”Karen Ann LongeneckerKaren Ann Longenecker is a member of St. Michael and All Angels in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the Diocese of Rio Grande.“I am a 29-year old laywoman and bilingual in Spanish. I have been a member of bicultural and multicultural ministries in several dioceses while in college and graduate school. I worked three years for two Jubilee ministries working with the homeless and immigrants and represented The Episcopal Church through Young Adult Ministries at the United Nations on the status of women. I conducted research in Chile on the impact of the church on the reproductive health of women for my Master’s thesis. I served on a diocesan Commission on Racial Justice and now serve on the Executive Council’s Committee on the Status of Women. I am passionate about a vision of the Church as a leader in global justice issues and what this vision looks like to young people. I want to work towards a vision of the Church that is diverse, inclusive and creative in new and innovative ways.”Nancy Wonderlich KoonceNancy Wonderlich Koonce is a member of Church of the Ascension in Twin Falls, Diocese of Idaho.“I am often told that my right and left brains are equally balanced, allowing me to see both the forest AND the trees. Because of my years of education and experience as a CPA/MBA, business valuator and fraud examiner, I am comfortable with analyzing pages of facts, figures, budgets and forecasts. And because of my lifetime as an Episcopalian, I can easily translate those numbers into endless possibilities for mission and ministry. I understand and can operate within the structure of this multinational organization that is the Episcopal Church with all its wonderful diversity, while at the same time understanding the limitations of the smallest of our rural churches and helping them fulfill their ministries within those limitations. I have served with dedication and pride on multiple parish, diocesan and provincial committees, and assure you that I would be a very dedicated and hard-working member of the Executive Council.”John JohnsonJohn Johnson is a member of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Dupont Circle, Diocese of Washington.“I am a lifelong Episcopalian who has grown up in the Church and also in politics. I believe that I am formed by the Church for public service, and if elected to Executive Council, I will use all of my gifts gained in my professional career in Washington to make The Episcopal Church relevant in the 21st Century. I am a 17-year member of St. Thomas’ Parish, and was elected Senior Warden in March 2010, where we are currently involved in a building campaign for a new sanctuary. I am a former vestry member, children’s and hospitality chair. In March 2011, I completed service on the Search and Nomination Committee for the Ninth Bishop of Washington. I have actively organized the Diocese’s participation in Washington’s Capital Pride march. I have served on the staff of the church under presiding bishops [Frank] Griswold and [Katharine] Jefferts Schori in the Office of Government Relations.”Elizabeth L. AndersonElizabeth L. Anderson is a member of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Stamford, Diocese of Connecticut.“I am currently a Ph.D. student in theology at Yale University, with an academic background in world Christianity, historical theology, and ecumenism. I have studied, worked, and traveled in nearly 50 countries, and combine a strong commitment to The Episcopal Church with a deep love and appreciation for other Christian traditions and diverse parts of the Anglican Communion. I have served The Episcopal Church as a deputy to General Convention and as a member of my parish vestry. I have also taught at seminaries in Ukraine and Iraq, and am very involved in the ecumenical movement, both nationally and internationally. As a young adult, I would help to make the Executive Council more reflective of the membership of The Episcopal Church.”The Rev. James B. SimonsThe Rev. James B. Simons is rector of St. Michael’s of the Valley, Ligonier, Diocese of Pittsburgh.“I have worked within The Episcopal Church at all levels for over 25 years and have an in-depth knowledge of our polity. As an eight-time deputy, Chair of Dispatch, Planning and Arrangements, past President’s Council’s of Advice, and the Secretariat, I have a good working relationship with the leadership of the Church. As the only member of the Standing Committee in the diocese unwilling to “re-align,” I was one of the leaders who helped to reorganize the Diocese of Pittsburgh in 2008 and 2009. I enjoy working collaboratively. I am filling an unexpired term on Executive Council and so have a unique understanding of it. I believe the greatest challenge before us is to develop and implement mission and ministry which will lead us to growth both spiritually and numerically.”The Rev. Susan SnookThe Rev. Susan B.

The Cuban Adjustment Act: Its impact on migration

first_imgA lingering product of the decades-long U.S. war against the Cuban Revolution is visible today in Costa Rica, where nearly 8,000 Cuban migrants wait for permission to cross Central American borders on their trek to the U.S.According to the Jan. 10 New York Times, an additional 3,000 Cubans are in Panama. The anti-Cuba weapon is the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act (CAA), which affords unique privileges — including a quick path to citizenship and permission to work legally — to any Cuban who reaches U.S. territory by any means. Although the Obama administration has steadfastly refused to consider any changes to the CAA, the opening of U.S.-Cuba diplomatic relations spiked the number of Cubans seeking to take advantage of those special benefits before the normalization process ends them.Contrast that to the Obama administration’s New Year’s raids and deportations of Central American refugee families who sought safe haven from warlike conditions in their homelands, conditions created by U.S. imperialism. Where do the drug cartels, paramilitaries and repressive coup regimes, like in Honduras, get the guns? Who profits off the international weapons trade? At the same time, the so-called U.S. Agency for International Development and the National Endowment for Democracy work for “soft coup” destabilization against progressive governments like those in El Salvador and Venezuela. This double standard made headlines in the 1990s, too, when Haitians attempting to reach Florida by boat were sent back to Haiti while Cubans were welcomed.Noted professor and author Salim Lamrani wrote in a Jan. 6 public email about the CAA: “This is a great tool for inciting illegal emigration. For nearly 50 years, the richest country in the world has opened its doors to the population of a small, poor, Third World country with limited resources and victim, moreover, of extremely severe economic sanctions.”The CAA is the carrot end of the stick that is the U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade. The architecture for the blockade was laid out in an internal U.S. State Department memo dated April 6, 1960. Admitting the Cuban people’s support for the Revolution, the document concluded: “The only foreseeable means of alienating internal support is through disenchantment and disaffection based on economic dissatisfaction and hardship … a line of action which, while as adroit and inconspicuous as possible, makes the greatest inroads in denying money and supplies to Cuba, to decrease monetary and real wages, to bring about hunger, desperation and overthrow of government.” (tinyurl.com/h6tm8e5)In addition to the CAA, since 2006, the Cuban Medical Professional Parole Program solicits Cuban educated “doctors, nurses, paramedics, physical therapists, lab technicians and sports trainers” (state.gov) to abandon international service and migrate to the U.S., taking along with them their high quality professional training that was provided to them without cost by the Cuban Revolution.Cuba’s revolution spreadsfree health careMore than 50,000 Cuban medical internationalists are serving in at least 66 countries. Often, the Cuban doctors are the very first medical professionals rural and poor people have ever seen. Cuba sent medical brigades to Algeria in 1961 and even earlier to Chile following a devastating earthquake there. From the hillsides of the Himalayas to tracking down the sources of cholera in Haiti to fighting ebola hemorrhagic fever in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone — there are Cuban doctors. And we can never forget that more than 1,500 fully equipped Henry Reeve Brigade, disaster trained, medical professionals waited to help the people of the U.S. Gulf Coast to survive hurricanes Katrina and Rita. But George W Bush said they weren’t needed! This was the very same Bush who almost on the anniversary of the hurricanes instituted the CMPPP to lure the doctors whose previous offer of help for New Orleans he refused.On Jan. 8, Reuters reported the CMPPP is under review with an announcement on whether to end it is expected before the end of the month. “With such a thaw under way, the parole program no longer seemed to fit what the White House has called a ‘new chapter’ in U.S.-Cuban relations.”After the 1959 revolutionary victory, half of Cuba’s doctors opted for life in Miami, leaving only 3,000 medical professionals in a country of millions with vast inequalities. Not only professionals, but also many wealthy and light-skinned Cubans fled to Miami. But the police, military officers and torturers of the Batista dictatorship came, too. The 1966 CAA was crafted for their benefit. Now, the anti-Cuba minority in Congress opposes the CAA, citing the current emigres as unworthy — pointing out that many quickly return to Cuba and travel back and forth freely, which, by the way, is a boon to the Miami economy, where the majority of the many, many daily charter flights to Cuba originate.In place of the CAA, the U.S. government needs to adjust its relationship with the world and its people. That means ending the blockade of Cuba, respecting its sovereign right to self-determination and its socialist economic plan, returning occupied Guantánamo, and ending the multitude of hostile policies and actions, including the CAA and CMPPP, which use immigration as a weapon, and also defunding the USAID, the NED, and propaganda TV and radio broadcasts to Cuba.It also means ending the raids and deportations, recognizing the refugee status of the Central American migrants and adjusting the status of the millions of undocumented without political bluster. Doesn’t the CAA show it can be done, at least when it serves their political purposes?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Worldwide mass protests slam Modi’s anti-Muslim law

first_imgMembers of the Mumbra-Kausa Women’s Association shout slogans during a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens and National Population Register on the outskirts of Mumbai on Jan. 26.Hundreds of thousands of people protested on Jan. 26 across India and in many cities abroad to oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Citizens Registry that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is pushing. The CAA would deny citizenship to India’s 200 million Muslims, and the NRC would create a national registry. Those who do not register would not be considered citizens.Tens of thousands of protesters formed “human chains” that stretched for miles in several Indian cities. A protest in Mumbai, the financial hub of India, drew 20,000. Women led many of the actions, including an all-woman demonstration of 20,000 in a suburb of Mumbai. In the midst of another mass protest in New Delhi, Modi held a military parade and feted Brazil’s fascist President Jair Bolsonaro.Jan. 26 is celebrated in India as Republic Day, marking the day the country’s constitution went into effect. There were huge demonstrations in 30 U.S. cities, including Atlanta, where 1,000 marched from CNN to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. Another big protest took place in Washington, D.C., while the largest was reportedly in Chicago, where participants formed a huge human chain.The newly formed Coalition to Stop Genocide initiated the U.S. demonstration.  It includes the Indian American Muslim Council, Equality Labs, Black Lives Matter, Jewish Voice for Peace and Hindus for Human Rights.Thousands of demonstrators marched in London, organized by United Against Fascism in India, despite efforts by the Modi regime to get the British government to ban the protest.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
