[Episcopal News Service] Con tres toques a la puerta dados por la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, el Seminario Teológico de Virginia dio inicio a una celebración de todo un año por su nueva capilla Immanuel el 13 de octubre, casi a cinco años justos de que su predecesora fuera destruida por un incendio.“En 2010, para la gloria de Dios, esta capilla se quemó y fue reconstruida en 2015”, dijo el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, al comenzar su sermón parafraseando un cartel que existe en la catedral de Coventry, en Inglaterra, que se quemó en 1949 y fue reconstruida en 1962. “¿Es posible? ¿Puede un evento de esta naturaleza ser alguna vez para gloria de Dios? ¿Por qué sí?, porque en la muerte y la resurrección volvemos a la presencia del Dios viviente que levantó a Jesucristo de los muertos”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori toca tres veces a la puerta de la nueva capilla Immanuel del Seminario Teológico de Virginia al comienzo del oficio de dedicación y consagración el 13 de octubre. Foto del STV.Jefferts Schori de pie fuera de la capilla y valiéndose de su báculo pastoral golpeó tres veces a la puerta de la capilla y exclamó: “que se abra la puerta”. Luego hizo, con el báculo, la señal de la cruz en el umbral y dijo: “Paz sea a esta casa, y a todos los que entran en ella”.Siguiendo el orden en el Libro de Oración Común, los obispos participantes fueron bendiciendo, por turno, la pila bautismal (Carolyn Tanner Irish, obispa jubilada de la Diócesis de Utah y copresidente honoraria de la campaña de captación de fondos para la capilla) la cruz procesional y los ciriales (James Shand, obispo jubilado de la Diócesis de Easton y presidente de la junta de síndicos del STV), el órgano (Michael Curry, obispo primado electo) y el ambón/púlpito (Frank Griswold, 25º. obispo primado y copresidente de la campaña de captación de fondos para la capilla).Jefferts Schori bendijo el altar antes de que lo revistieran y lo prepararan para la Gran Plegaria Eucarística. Shannon Johnston, obispo de Virginia, bendijo el armario [de los cálices y las vestimentas] después de la comunión.El himno de secuencia, escrito para el oficio por el Rdo. Carl P. Daw Jr. como un regalo de la Clase de 2015, incluía la petición de que Dios “nos edifique como una casa fiel sobre un monte santo”. El seminario comisionó a su profesor de música sacra, Rdo. William Bradley Roberts, para escribir “Un Gloria Festivo” [A Festal Glory] que se cantó después de que el altar quedó revestido y preparado y antes del rito de la paz.Todo esto se hizo en celebración del nuevo edificio de la capilla. Welby advirtió durante su sermón que los edificios de la Iglesia pueden ser tanto bendiciones como cargas: a veces son los siervos de la Iglesia”, dijo, y a veces son el tirano de la Iglesia con sus “exigencias e instrucciones”.Los edificios de la Iglesia no son más que ladrillo y argamasa, pero edificios como “el espacio, asombroso, espléndido y hermoso” de la nueva capilla Immanuel, acogen a peregrinos y les infunden un sentimiento de “exultación y de belleza”.El pueblo que se congrega a adorar acude con desordenados corazones llenos de gozo y de pesar, de llamados que no logran discernir y de vergüenza por el pecado, y salen transformados y reorientados hacia el servicio, afirmó él. “La santidad no es nítida ni limpia ni respetuosa de las normas”, siguió diciendo. “es un fuego y una llama que consume lo oscuro y lo sucio. Es belleza y temor, que nos lleva a caer sobre nuestros rostros, paralizados por nuestro pecado, atraídos por su luz radiante y su calor restaurador. Pero la santidad nunca es prolija”.Y si bien el culto puede transformar y reorientar a los participantes, no debe buscar hacer a las personas conformistas, añadió. “Que éste nunca sea un lugar que busque conformar a las personas”, dijo Welby.El Arzobispo hizo un llamado a que la capilla “oriente y forme a los que han de portar la antorcha de la unidad”. Diciendo que su corazón se quebranta cuando contempla las divisiones que existen en el mundo, Welby oró: “Oh, Dios, necesitamos una Iglesia unida”.Welby también citó las divisiones de la Comunión Anglicana, “en las cuales estoy en lo personal profundamente implicado”. Llamó a la congregación a “reconocer, contemplar y lamentar” el hecho que “nosotros también nos apartamos de Dios y perdemos de vista la misión de Dios”.La Iglesia debe edificarse sobre la roca de la obediencia a la palabra de Jesús, enfatizó el Arzobispo.“No hay ninguna transigencia con ese mensaje. Sin él, esto es un museo, una interesante antropología social”, afirmó. “Con Jesús como su foco y centro, es un canal de la irrupción del reino de Dios. Para que la capilla Immanuel viva a la altura de la belleza de su arquitectura debe ser un lugar no de orden o de conformidad, sino de transformación y de conversión diarias, tal como lo tendría San Benito. Ha de ser un lugar donde el encuentro con Dios torne a una multitud de peregrinos en el pueblo que encuentra a Dios en Cristo”.El obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia Shannon Johnston, el decano del Seminario Teológico de Virginia Ian Markham, la diácona Susan Ackley Lukens; la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, el obispo primado electo Michael Curry y el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby cantan en el altar durante la eucaristía de dedicación y consagración del edificio el 13 de octubre. Foto de Richard Schori.Y, habiendo encontrado a Dios en Cristo, los peregrinos que entran como pecadores, dijo Welby, “encuentran perdón y salen con nuevo corazón y nueva esperanza a transformar un mundo en el cual de otro modo las tinieblas parecen extinguir la luz, el temor prevalece y el sufrimiento desesperanzador somete a los más débiles y a los más pobres”.El texto del sermón de Welby se encuentra aquí.El ofertorio del oficio se dedicó a la campaña para reconstruir la catedral de la Santa Trinidad de la Diócesis de Haití en Puerto Príncipe, la cual fue destruida por un terremoto en enero de 2010.“Como comunidad estamos muy conscientes de que nuestra pérdida coincidió con el terremoto de Haití que destruyó la catedral”, dijo el Muy Rdo. Ian S. Markham, decano y presidente del STV, en sus palabras de bienvenida. “Según celebramos, queremos hacer nuestra parte en acercar el momento en que nuestras hermanos y hermanos de Haití celebren en su nueva catedral”.“Este seminario está decidido a continuar sirviendo a la Iglesia Episcopal y a la más amplia Comunión Anglicana a través de esta capilla”, dijo Markham. “Tomamos a pecho lo que le hemos escuchado decir al arzobispo de Cantórbery. Nos esforzaremos en tratar de servir a Dios y, en todas las cosas, a Dios sea la gloria”.El himno de la post comunión “Grande es tu fidelidad”, recordaba el día en que quedó destruida la capilla anterior. Lo habían cantado los que Markham reunió para que oraran mientras ardía la capilla Immanuel de 1881.Más tarde el 13 de octubre, Welby ofició en un oficio de vísperas coral que comenzó con la bendición de las nuevas campanas de la capilla por el obispo Griswold, desde lo alto del campanario. Un malfuncionamiento de los micrófonos, obligó a Griswold a comenzar el oficio tres veces. Bendecidas al fin, sin el beneficio de un micrófono que funcionara, las campanas comenzaron a repicar mientras Griswold salía de la torre para volver al nártex para la procesión.La torre de la capilla cuenta con ocho campanas de tañidos en serie. Hechas en la Fundación Whitechapel en Londres. A las campanas las alzaron y las instalaron a fines de 2014. La Fundación Whitechapel, la compañía manufacturera más antigua de Gran Bretaña, también fundió la original campana de la Libertad y el Big Ben, la campana que da la hora en el reloj de Westminster. En el tañido en serie no se hace ningún intento de producir una melodía convencional; las campanas se repican con una serie de variaciones.El oficio de vísperas incluyó también la dedicación de dos obras de arte. Una de ellas, un Icono de la Encarnación, se le encargó a Olga Shalamova. La otra era un escultura, María como profeta, de Margaret Adams Parker, y se erigió fuera de la capilla; la misma representa a María como una adolescente que lleva la Palabra Eterna y es conminada a compartir el mensaje que ha de cambiar el mundo.El obispo primado electo Michael Curry, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby, el ex obispo primado Frank Griswold y el decano del Seminario Teológico de Virginia Ian Markham reunidos el 13 de octubre antes de la consagración y dedicación de la capilla Immanuel. Foto de Matt Rhodes/STV vía Facebook.Luego de las vísperas, Robert A.M. Stern, fundador y socio principal de la firma de arquitectos de Nueva York que diseñó la capilla, se dirigió a la congregación. Stern dijo que se sentía agradecido de haber podido contribuir a la misión del seminario. “El diseño de un espacio sagrado es uno de los grandes privilegios que un arquitecto podría desear”, afirmó.Después de expresarle su agradecimiento a su personal, a sus colegas y a los constructores, Stern también le dio las gracias a la comunidad del seminario y a su visión. “Los arquitectos son tan buenos como sus clientes se lo permitan”, dijo, provocando risas y aplausos.Al presentar a Stern, Markham dijo que la escuela quería un edificio que pareciera que siempre había formado parte del existente conjunto de edificios del campus y también uno que ofreciera nuevas posibilidades de culto.“Según miran en torno la nueva capilla Immanuel, espero que consideren que hemos hallado nuestra vía, que hemos encontrado algo nuevo que decir en medio de nuestro problemático presente”, dijo Stern. “Y según nos adentramos en el futuro incognoscible, espero que nuestra intención de construir para el porvenir se vea recompensado”.El arquitecto explicó que en lugar de replicar simplemente el edificio de 1881, o de diseñar uno que fuera solamente innovador, su firma quiso abarcar el pasado del seminario así como su visión para el futuro. “No teníamos la intención de hacer una iglesia del siglo XIX”.La firma, entre cuyos clientes se cuentan desde universidades hasta Disneylandia y el distrito de los teatros de Nueva York, diseñó un edificio con la flexibilidad para cumplir la misión del seminario de enseñar a futuros clérigos a dirigir el culto mientras sirve como sencillo trasfondo a toda una serie de propósitos litúrgicos, desde celebraciones a gran escala hasta oficios íntimos” La parroquia que ahora se conoce como iglesia Immanuel de la Colina [Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill]ha celebrado cultos en la capilla del seminario desde mediados del siglo XIX.Las celebraciones del día dieron inicio a los eventos de un “año de dedicación” en el seminario para festejar la nueva capilla.La Agencia Federal de Bebidas Alcohólicas, Tabaco, Armas de Fuego y Explosivos y el Departamento de Bomberos de Alexandria, VA, dictaminaron que el incendio del 22 de octubre de 2010 que destruyó el edificio de la capilla (de 1881) del Seminario Teológico de Virginia había sido accidental.La Agencia Federal de Bebidas Alcohólicas, Tabaco, Armas de Fuego y Explosivos (ATF, por su sigla en inglés) investigó el incendio de 2010 y dictaminó seis días después que había sido producto de un accidente. La respuesta federal es de rutina cuando tiene lugar un incendio de esa magnitud en una casa de culto, dijeron el seminario y la ATF en ese tiempo. El incendio comenzó en un latón de basuras que dejaron cerca de un calefactor en la sacristía.La estructura de madera estilo victoriano tardío carecía de detectores de humo y de un sistema de rociadores, y el fuego se extendió rápidamente. Los daños a la capilla, consagrada en 1881, se calcularon en $2,5 millones, según dijo la ATF.Los síndicos de la escuela acordaron en noviembre de 2011 construir una nueva capilla para reemplazar la que se había destruido. Los restos del edificio de 1881 se preservaron como un jardín de recordación.Las obras comenzaron en septiembre de 2013 y la primera eucaristía se celebró en la nueva capilla el 12 de febrero de 2015.La nueva capilla Immanuel es parte de una serie de instalaciones de “Adoración y Acogida”, que incluye un mejorado centro de acogida y un nuevo estacionamiento, lo cual crea una nueva entrada desde la carretera que lleva al seminario [Seminary Road] al campus.La campaña de captación de fondos “Capilla para las Edades” de la escuela recaudó más de $14,3 millones para el proyecto. Presidieron esta campaña Cynthia C. (Cece) Fowler, el Rdo. J. Barney Hawkins IV (vicepresidente de progreso institucional del STV) y el 25º. Obispo primado Griswold. Tanner Irish, obispo jubilado de Utah, fue copresidente honorario.El orden para el oficio eucarístico de dedicación y consagración se encuentra aquí.El orden del oficio de vísperas se encuentra aquí.Ambos oficios se transmitieron en directo.

Global information solutions company Experian has launched Canvasse Charity Selections, a new service to help fundraisers target potential donors more effectively.Canvasse Charity Selections is designed to help fundraisers accurately target individuals who can afford to make donations, are likely to do so and are less likely to have received direct mail from other charities. Experian say it differs from other products because it uses “actual data” rather than relying on modelled data. In short, they suggest that it can help charities’ direct mailing campaigns reach those people in the UK best qualified to make donations. Advertisementcenter_img Howard Lake | 20 May 2004 | News Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Individual giving Prospect research Technology It uses three sets of data to target the most likely givers. To identify potential donors with high disposable income, it first uses shareholder data, which contains the details of two million high net worth UK investors owning £27 billion in shares. Creditworthiness predictors generated by Delphi for Mailings, Experian’s credit scoring tool, further verify an individual’s ability to donate.This data on high net worth individuals’ ability to donate is then matched with two of Experian’s segmentation tools, Mosaic and Financial Strategy Segments. Used together, the two data sets provide an insight into individuals’ habits and views, enabling charities to tailor direct mail campaigns to elicit the best response.The final stage involves taking the data and overlaying it onto the UK-wide population provided by Experian’s National Canvasse database to highlight individuals in the UK who are less likely to have received charity-specific direct mail in the past. Peter Thompson, Sales Director for Experian’s Marketing Services division, said: “Our new service allows charities to exert better control over the types of individual they need to target – providing them with a sophisticated prospect targeting solution that reduces costs whilst increasing average donation value.”last_img read more


‚€100 million potential windfall for charities

first_imgThe latest figure from the regulator is thought to be the last significant figure that will be recovered from banks. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Irish charities could benefit by over ‚€100 million from money retrieved from overcharging by banks, according to press reports. So far ‚€20 million has been passed to charity because the Financial Regulator has been unable to trace those account holders who were overcharged.The estimate of ‚€100 million is based on the latest report by the Financial Regulator who reported last week that they recovered another ‚€49 million from the banks to add to the ‚€118 million already secured. Based on previous figures the regulator was only able to return a small amount to customers, giving charities another windfall. Much of the overcharging occurred with accounts that are no longer active or the owners are difficult to trace. In addition, some of the overcharging was on currency transactions where there is no record of personal details.

He is currently studying for a Ph.D. in music education from Auburn University.His interest in and talent for music came from both sides of his family.

Book Nook to reopen Sexton returns to Pike County, will lead frequency group Scott Sexton, an acclaimed musician and choral director, is home in Troy while pursuing his Ph.d, after global travels and teaching in Mississippi. Sexton will also be teaching Collegiate Singers and the jazz vocal group frequency at Troy University this fall. By Jaine Treadwell You Might Like Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder “Growing up, both sides of my family were musical,” Sexton said. “My mom loved to sing and my dad ‘piddled’ on the guitar.”Sexton said when his mother’s side of the family got together, they would gather around the piano and sing, especially at Christmas time.“But it wasn’t unusual to have a string band playing bluegrass at a gathering of my dad’s family,” he said. With music running through his blood and “phenomenal” music teachers, including Lyra Crapps and Amanda Ford, to guide and direct him. Sexton soon realized that music was his life’s calling.After graduating from his hometown university, he moved to Mississippi to further his education and explore opportunities there.At Ole Miss, Sexton studied choral conducting and music education. After graduation,  he moved down to Jackson where he taught at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.At St. Andrew’s he held the position of director of choral music and Fine Arts Department chair.Sexton completed Kodaly certification which focuses on the expressive and creative skills of musicianship rather than the theory of instrument skills. He received a scholarship that enabled him to study at the summer school of the Kodaly Institute n Kecskemet, Hungry.Sexton said that opportunity directed his attention to detail and command of musicality in his music teaching.  As a result of that learning and teaching opportunity, his students earned individual and ensemble honors at the local, regional and national levels.Sexton has an interest in international and folk music in the choral classroom.“I was fortunate to be able to take students on several trips to Ghana, West Africa and also had the opportunity to spend four summers in Balkan Europe, particularly in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” he said. “There, I studied choral music and how Bosnians are using this music to foster ethnic reconciliation in the aftermath of the Bosnian War.”In Mississippi, Sexton was a co-producer of the first-ever Mississippi Balkan Choral Festival. He served at the artistic director for the Mississippi Girlchoir and founded and directed Mississippi Harmony, a multigenerational community choir. He is also affiliated with Village Harmony, a Vermont-based organization the promotes the method and practice of teaching and performance of world choral music.With his education, his teaching experiences, his world travels and his desire to bring the best quality of music educator to all those under his tutelage, Sexton has returned home to teach and to focus on finishing a Ph.D. in music education at Auburn University.“My research focuses on historical music education, particularly studying teachers and their philosophies that were movers and shakers of multicultural music,” he said.  “I am also focused on music-related historical research and biographical studies.”As much as Sexton enjoys teaching, as excited as he is to be home, as honored as he is to be teaching at Troy University, he has a wild side “that makes me want to do other stuff, including music related historical research and biographical studies.Sexton said he also has a strong desire to travel and to experience different kinds music, of other cultures, in different places.“And, who knows, I might even pick up a guitar and start playing bluegrass music,” he said, laughing.
