The pre-match timing gives a player one minute to meet at the net after walking on the court followed by a five minute warm-up, then one minute to be ready to begin the match.

Photo/Thomas Fisher[Episcopal News Service, Chapel Hill, North Carolina] The Episcopal Church of the Advocate‘s new chapel is 112 years older than the congregation itself, and was originally built about 100 miles west of the church’s campus in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. After months of planning and careful moving, the building arrived on the Advocate’s land on Dec. 8. This was no ordinary building drive.The story of the chapel began in 1891 when St. Philip’s Episcopal Church was built and consecrated in Germanton, North Carolina. A Carpenter Gothic building, St. Philip’s was home to a congregation of some 20 members when it was built, and never grew beyond that size. By the early 1980s, it had no congregation, but was cared for by the Diocese of North Carolina and a committee of local Episcopalians, until just a few years ago.The main section of the chapel prepares to roll on to it’s new footers in Chapel Hill. Photo/Thomas FisherAfter no one stepped forward to tend to the building, in 2011 the diocese decided to sell the property, but hoped to find a way to preserve the chapel. Meanwhile, the Episcopal Church of the Advocate, a mission church established in 2004, was purchasing land in Chapel Hill, and was contemplating building a worship space when the diocese offered the prospect of moving St. Philip’s chapel to the Advocate’s land.“Support for moving the building reflects joy at the prospect of bringing renewed life and ministry to a building that otherwise was going to lie vacant or be sold altogether,” said the Rev. Brooks Graebner, diocesan historiographer. “Moving the building allows it to continue to serve the sacred purpose for which it was consecrated by Bishop Cheshire in the 1890s.”St. Philip’s chapel is in place and awaiting a foundation, which will be constructed underneath it, before the roof and bell tower are reconstructed. Photo/Thomas FisherThe idea of transporting St. Philip’s at first appeared unrealistic, but due to its heart pine construction and upkeep, the building was sturdy enough for the move, and relocating the chapel turned out to be less expensive than building a new one.That same sturdy craftsmanship makes St. Philip’s a profoundly beautiful space, said Beth Lassiter, the Advocate’s junior warden. “The beautiful, uneven board and batten, so obviously placed by hand; the wavy bright windows, and the rich acoustics of the room; the tall belltower and clear bell – these are all links to our heritage,” she said. “The space will delight and reinvigorate all of the people who will come to the Advocate in the years ahead.”Blake Moving Company of Greensboro, North Carolina, carefully disassembled the building – the belltower and roof traveled separately from the main sanctuary – and shepherded it some 126 mainly rural miles over 10 days to the Advocate’s campus, where it will be carefully reconstructed, and outfitted with electricity, plumbing and a heating-cooling system for the first time in its history.The Rev. Lisa Fischbeck addresses the gathering which celebrated the arrival of St. Philip’s on the Episcopal Church of the Advocate’s campus. Photo/Thomas FisherFunds have been raised for the cost of the move, but some $200,000 is still needed to pay for the infrastructure required for the congregation to worship in St. Philip’s. The congegation hopes that work will be completed by next summer, in time for its 10th anniversary in September.The project appealed to the Advocate’s congregation for several reasons. Breathing new life into an old building fits well with their identity as a “re-traditioning” church. Additionally, relocating St. Philip’s saves a considerable amount of natural resources, compared to building anew.“The Advocate has a strong commitment to environmental sustainability,” said the Rev. Lisa Fischbeck, vicar. “For us, to be able to preserve a building and adapt it for use in the 21st century is a manifestation of that commitment. We are also a community that takes seriously our roots in this diocese and in the broader Anglican-Episcopal tradition.”Lassiter agreed, noting that the dynamic interplay of tradition and innovation in the move reflects the Advocate’s mission. “At first it might seem strange that a new, retraditioning church should be so moved by an old space. But I know, very clearly, that it’s a space that suits us. And it is that simplicity and connection to our Episcopal heritage that makes it so perfect,” said Lassiter. “It’s also uniquely Episcopalian, and as such, is a reminder that we are only one generation of a long tradition, very firmly part of something larger than ourselves.”North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry summed up the impetus behind the diocesan decision to move the building from its original location with a vision of its future.“St. Philip’s will now participate in writing a new chapter of history,” he said. “Soon the sounds of babies crying and children running through it will be heard. Soon new followers of Jesus will be baptized in that building again. Soon offerings to feed the hungry will be taken up in that building. Soon the urgent needs of the world will be lifted up in prayer in that building. Soon a vibrant congregation composed greatly of young adults committed to following the way of Jesus will worship God there in order that they may leave that place to go into the world to serve and witness in Jesus’ name. And because of all that, a historic building will have a new future, playing a part in God’s work of creating a new future for the human family.”— Sam Laurent is a member of the vestry of the Episcopal Church of the Advocate, and director of its Center for Theological Engagement.

The church also celebrated 50 years of autonomy and 30 years of women’s ordination. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Porto Alegre, Brazil] For 125 years the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has been building the reign of God through its pursuit of mission across what is the largest country in South America, with the help of both local partnerships and strong, historical ties with the U.S.-based Episcopal Church in a spirit of “oneness.”“This Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has the same vocation of oneness that Jesus asks for his disciples,” said Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, during a sermon delivered June 7 at Most Holy Trinity Cathedral in Porto Alegre, the southern city where the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil was established in 1890 by two missionaries sent by Virginia Theological Seminary.“Your history here has been a long process of drawing people together in ways that bless them. Your gift has been the conviction that oneness in the Church is supposed to bless the wider community as well. Becoming one begins in sharing the good news of God’s love for all and teaching people how to live together as friends – friends of God and one another. We see that oneness happen in congregations and in the ways in which their members are present in the wider community – feeding, teaching, healing and seeking justice,” she said.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached during the June 7 Eucharist at Most Holy Trinity Cathedral in Porto Alegre, Brazil, the birthplace of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil. The Rev. Luiz Coelho, of the Diocese of Rio de Janeiro, translated the sermon from English to Portuguese. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSMore than 200 people gathered in the early evening at Most Holy Trinity Cathedral, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil’s national cathedral, for the three-hour service marking the church’s 125th anniversary, 50 years of autonomy and 30 years of women’s ordination. In addition to preaching, the presiding bishop celebrated alongside Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva and Bishop Humberto Maiztegue of the Diocese of Meridional, where the cathedral is located.Since the signing of a bilateral covenant in 1990, following a period of separation, the U.S.-based Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil have been working to reconnect, re-establish friendships and encourage partnerships and companion relationships between the two churches.“In the last 20 years the relationship has become even more important. I think they can teach us an awful lot about the missional push out to the places that have never seen any good news, or are in urgent need of it,” Jefferts Schori told Episcopal News Service, referring to the church’s missionary work with indigenous people that stresses solidarity and accompaniment, rather than giving. “That’s a remarkable point of view and theology that most people in the U.S. part of the church would never understand or never start with.“Brazil is at a post-colonial place, and is very confident about it and that is something we could learn from. That it’s not about bounteous giving, which has been The Episcopal Church’s M.O. (modus operandi) for a long time. It’s less so today, but that’s what we are famous for. We are beginning to learn how to be in solidarity, but the church here already knows how and could teach us an awful lot.”The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has been rooted in mission throughout its 125 years of existence; the mission field established in the south has spread to remote corners of the Amazon, as well as more recently into the northeast. Still, as with the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil weathered more than a decade of schism related to human sexuality and ethics, both heterosexual and homosexual behavior, explained da Silva, in an interview with Episcopal News Service on June 6.The church chose the theme “unity and thanksgiving” as a reaffirmation of its commitment to mission and service, through “unity” not “uniformity,” and to express its gratitude for its rich history, as well as its commitment to move forward as one church, he said.The Very Rev. Mannez Rosa dos Santos, dean of Most Holy Trinity Cathedral in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and others who worked on the 1,181-page Book of Common Prayer, adapted for the Brazilian context, celebrate its introduction during the 125th anniversary Eucharist on June 7. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSAdditionally, the church is thankful for the publication of its 1,181-page Book of Common Prayer, which was nine years in the making and is adapted to the Brazilian context, including gender inclusive and colloquial language that sets a course for the future, he said.“Our church has a sense of openness to the future,” said da Silva.The presiding bishop spent three days in Porto Alegre, where she and the Rev. David Gortner, who represented Virginia Theological Seminary, got to better know the Brazilian church; they met with an interreligious group, visited with the staff of a diocesan environmental education program for children, a Guarani village and an elder-care facility operated out of a church. On June 6, the presiding bishop gave a lecture on the episcopate and sexism during a conference of lay and ordained women theologians that coincided with the weekend’s events.“There are abundant signs of that oneness here – in the profound respect shown to every member of the interreligious group we met here on Friday; in your conscious and pro-active empowerment of women, sexual minorities, and indigenous people; (and) in your care and solidarity with all the poor, including our poor, abused environment. Together, all God’s people are working to build a more effective whole,” said the presiding bishop in her sermon.“This celebration is about that growing health and wholeness, and lots of boundaries have been broken down to bring us to this point. For anyone who doesn’t have a clear sense of what life is truly about – and that’s every one of us at some point– your new prayer book will help people recognize the holy all around us and within us. It will bring us closer to a church that truly does respect the dignity of every human being, male and female, gay and straight, the descendants of every nation, and the other parts of God’s creation.”The presiding bishop’s presence, said the Rev. Arthur Cavalcante, the church’s provincial secretary, was a testament to the historical relationship between the two churches and a “sign that we can continue to build the mission of God we are charged with.”In 1890, two missionaries from Virginia Theological Seminary, Lucien Lee Kinsolving and James Watson Morris, established the church in Porto Alegre, in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.In 1907, the missionary efforts in Brazil resulted in the establishment of a missionary district of The Episcopal Church under the leadership of Kinsolving, who by then was a bishop.“I’m continually moved by Virginia’s heritage and its influence on Christian and Episcopal mission, and that we’ve consistently emphasized the growth of an indigenous church with indigenous leadership,” said Gortner, professor of evangelism and congregational leadership and director of the doctor of ministry program at Virginia Theological Seminary.The Rev. David Gortner, professor of evangelism and congregational leadership and director of the doctor of ministry program at Virginia Theological Seminary, represented the seminary at the 125th anniversary celebration. Here he reads a letter from the Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, the seminary’s dean, during the June 7 Eucharist. The Rev. Luiz Coelho, of the Diocese of Rio de Janeiro, translated the letter from English to Portuguese. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSGortner participated in the June 7 service by reading a letter from the Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, the seminary’s dean, and on June 6, during a reception, a letter from the Rev. Robert Heaney, direct of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies.“The people in leadership roles are remarkable, committed and passionate and show a real joy in ministry,” said Gortner, in an interview with ENS.“I admire the ways they seek to partner with and advocate for the poor and the marginalized and those who don’t hold power in this society. I hope for more influence that can only come with growth.”Brazil is the world’s fifth largest country both geographically and by population, with more than 200 million people. Though Roman Catholicism is no longer the state-sponsored religion, it has more Roman Catholics, 123 million, than any other country in the world. The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, by contrast, records 120,000 baptized members, and a regular Sunday attendance of about 25,000 worshippers.The church’s historical ties to the seminary and The Episcopal Church, more so than its ties to the Anglican Church, which established Anglican chaplaincies to serve expatriates, carries great importance.“The presence of the Virginia missionaries has always been relevant and very important to the church in Brazil in starting the mission here,” said the Rev. Glenda McQueen, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s officer for Latin America and the Caribbean, adding that the church also experienced a period of separation from the seminary that it hoped to remedy. “So being able to reconnect with Virginia Seminary has been very important in connecting with where the mission started, and the people that came.“Also, the relationship with The Episcopal Church has been important for Brazil to maintain and to strengthen and that relationship has been very important throughout the years, so the presiding bishop’s presence speaks to that relationship and that partnership. I believe also especially the celebration of the 30 years of ordination of women serves to highlight women’s leadership where, historically, the leaders have all been men. But, it’s the partnership for them that is really, really important, and Virginia coming was just the icing on the cake.”In the 1950s, the Brazilian church began talking about its autonomy, and in 1965 the missionary district became the autonomous Province of Brazil.During the Cold War – a time when the U.S. government regularly backed right-wing governments in an attempt to thwart the spread of communism in Latin America, at times participating in the overthrow left-leaning leaders, including the 1964 military coup that ousted Brazil’s president João Goulart – a resurgent nationalism took hold in Brazil.“Everyone knows that the U.S. played a key role in the process [coup], and people in the church began to feel nationalistic,” said da Silva, adding that the church became in independent province the next year.The Episcopal Church continued its financial support of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil until 1975. Still, the church lost many of its clergy, who were previously paid in U.S. dollars rather than the weaker local currency, and the church was forced to sell off properties.“The process of autonomy was not rightly led and it became a great challenge for us to manage,” said da Silva. “We were completely, financially dependent.”Fifty years later, the church celebrates its autonomy, and continues in the missionary tradition of its founding.In addition to Brazil, The Episcopal Church has covenant relationships with Episcopal churches in Liberia, the Philippines, which became an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion in 2005, and the Anglican Church of the Central Region of America (most commonly known by its Spanish acronym, IARCA).“Brazil is a major success story: They have grown to maturity and beyond in a lot of ways,” said Jefferts Schori, adding that Brazil was the first province to become autonomous out of the work of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society. “They are teaching us.”(The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business and carries out mission.)“They pushed us to move to a new level of relationship,” said the presiding bishop. “The Philippines have done something like that, too, in their assertive move to autonomy ahead of schedule and in bringing that enormous gift to General Convention. And long term, I hope that’s what the future is for a number of the extra-U.S. dioceses. We ought to be moving toward that kind of vision and helping them become autonomous in a way that lets them thrive. That’s what the [Province IX] sustainability work is about, I believe, long term.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – New Brunswick, Nueva Jersey] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal fue desde aquí a Nueva York el primer día de su reunión del 20 al 22 de octubre para encontrarse con el personal denominacional como parte del empeño de la Iglesia de tener una cultura que refleje menor el camino amoroso, liberador y vivificador de Jesús.Al iniciar la conversación de la tarde, el obispo primado Michael B. Curry dijo que la labor es un esfuerzo “por liberar a esta Iglesia para que encienda un fuego en el mundo para el bien y para el amor.”Todo el personal denominacional se reunió los días 18 y 19 de octubre para proseguir el trabajo de cambio cultural que ha estado llevando a cabo desde fines de la primavera. Durante el último ejercicio de esa reunión cada miembro del personal se comprometió verbalmente con un cambio de conducta. Curry, al describir su reacción al escuchar esas promesas, dijo que detrás de cada una de ellas estaba “una profunda esperanza para nosotros de estar algo más cerca de lo que Dios sueña que seamos”.Durante la sesión plenaria de apertura del Consejo el 20 de octubre, tanto Curry como la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings les recordaron a los miembros la histórica reunión del mes pasado de la Cámara de Obispos y la Cámara de Diputados a la que muchos miembros acudieron a oír sobre la labor del cambio de cultura que se había emprendido con la ayuda de Human Synergistics International. A los consultores se les contrató después de que se hiciera, el otoño pasado, una investigación de las denuncias del personal sobre las prácticas laborales de tres importantes directivos del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en Nueva York. Curry le dijo a Episcopal News Service en ese momento que la decisión se basó en gran medida en abordar la necesidad de cualquier organización eclesiástica en transición de liderazgo de examinar su cultura.Jennings vinculó la labor a las interrogantes que la Iglesia ha enfrentado recientemente respecto a cómo cambiar sus estructuras para posibilitar mejor el trabajo de la misión. “Si no le prestamos atención a lo que estamos aprendiendo respecto a la cultura de la Iglesia, y nos concentramos en cambiarla para crear una cultura del Movimiento de Jesús a través de la Iglesia, nunca haremos un cambio estructural importante”, afirmó.Cambiar la cultura de la Iglesia “liberará la energía y el poder de los episcopales de todos los órdenes del ministerio para cumplir la misión de Dios para la Iglesia Episcopal” y la combinación de la cultura y energía de la Iglesia “nos conducirá a crear una estructura sana, vivificadora y liberadora que haga el mejor uso de nuestros recursos como pueblo de Dios”. dijo también ella.El Rdo. Michael Hunn, a la izquierda, uno de los tres canónicos del Obispo Primado, habla con Curry el 20 de octubre mientras el director ejecutivo de la Convención General, Rdo. Michael Barlowe y la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y vicepresidente del Consejo Ejecutivo, conversan antes de que los miembros del Consejo se reunieran por la tarde con el personal denominacional. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Curry relató la historia de Billy Sunday, un evangelista de mediados del siglo XIX a principios del siglo XX, quien, al leer el Libro de Oración Común afirmó [dirigiéndose al Diablo] “Si la Iglesia Episcopal alguna vez despierta, tenga cuidado”“Mis hermanos y hermanas, estamos despiertos”, dijo Curry.También durante el pleno de por la mañana, antes de que el Consejo viajara a Nueva York, los tres miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal ante el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano —Jennings; Rosalie Ballentine, diputada de la Diócesis de Islas Vírgenes y el obispo de Connecticut Ian Douglas— informaron sobre la reunión del CCA-16.Jennings dijo que los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal asistieron a la reunión de abril en Lusaka, Zambia, “pese a las conjeturas de algunos círculos de que no debíamos asistir debido al llamado de los primados de la Comunión en enero de que le impusieran tres años de “consecuencias” a la Iglesia Episcopal luego de que ésta decidiera sacramentar la igualdad matrimonial. Jennings hizo notar que el CCA declinó respaldar las consecuencias que la reunión de los primados no tenía la autoridad para imponer”. Ella criticó la subsecuente afirmación del arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby de que el CCA si había respaldado las consecuencias.“He llegado a la conclusión, con pesar, que la política de la Comunión Anglicana está en peligro y que el apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal a la igualdad matrimonial está siendo usada como una cortina de humo por unos pocos primados que al parecer quieren adueñarse de la autoridad del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano”, afirmó ella.Ballentine, ex miembro del Consejo y cuyo hijo Jabriel sirve ahora en ese organismo, dijo que ella había aprendido mucho acerca de la Comunión durante la reunión [del CCA] que fue la primera a la que ella asistía y que se dio cuenta de que, en lugar de concentrarse en el gobierno [de la Iglesia] en el estricto sentido del término, las reuniones del CCA enfatizaban la creación de relaciones para abordar los problemas del mundo. El Consejo abordó asuntos tales como el discipulado, la violencia de género, el cambio climático, la violencia por motivos religiosos y la seguridad alimentaria que afecta a todos los anglicanos y “en ningún momento nos hicieron sentir mal acogidos”, dijo ella.Ballentine se sentó a la misma mesa que Welby y la experiencia le produjo “una profunda empatía por él y los retos a que él se enfrenta tratando de mantener la Comunión unida”. Welby, ella cree, entiende “nuestras diferentes historias, las complejidades de nuestros diferentes contextos y cómo los mismos repercuten en la Iglesia mundial”.La elección del arzobispo de Hong Kong Paul Kwong como presidente del CCA resultó preocupante, agregó ella. Resaltando que algunas personas dijeron que elegir a un primado a la presidencia del CCA les daría a todos los primados un medio de comunicarse con el CCA, Ballentine dijo “eso es precisamente, en mi opinión, el peligro de elegir primados”. Los primados, afirmó ella, “deben aprender a hablarnos y no sólo a hablar entre ellos”.Douglas, a quien Curry encomió por su decisión de no presentarse a las elecciones a la presidencia del CCA, dijo que esa decisión se basó en su preocupación “institucional y cultural” respecto a la manera en que su candidatura podría afectar al CCA, a la Iglesia Episcopal y “a mi propia vocación personal” como obispo de Connecticut.Si él se hubiera presentado y hubiera resultado electo, Douglas sabía que “los detractores ya estaban preparando comunicados acerca de lo caprichoso que era el CCA y cómo no refleja [el sentir de] la Comunión Anglicana por haber elegido a una persona de la Iglesia Episcopal. Eso afectaría al CCA”, dijo él.Si él se hubiera presentado y no lo hubieran elegido, la derrota se habría esgrimido como prueba de que la Iglesia Episcopal no escucha a los primados. Además, añadió él, otros le ayudaron a discernir el impacto que la presidencia podría haber tenido en su vida personal y en sus votos como obispo de Connecticut.Al preguntarle acerca de la contribución trienal de $1.200.000 de la Iglesia Episcopal al presupuesto anual de $3 millones de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana, un pago que Jennings dijo que los episcopales deben seguir haciendo con “alegría en nuestros corazones”, Douglas dijo que el pago es aproximadamente la mitad de lo que se pide a la Iglesia. Debido a que la solicitud se basa en el PIB del país o países de cada provincia y de la membresía de la provincia, la contribución de la Iglesia Episcopal es la segunda entre las provincias después de la Iglesia de Inglaterra. Douglas hizo notar que las actuales tasas de cambio hacen que los dólares estadounidenses rindan más en Inglaterra.* El tesorero Kurt Barnes le informó a los miembros [del Consejo] sobre el rendimiento hasta agosto de la porción correspondiente a 2016 del presupuesto trienal 2016-2018, diciendo que tanto los ingresos como los egresos se mostraban conforme a lo previsto También hizo notar que las ganancias quinquenales netas de los $370 millones en inversiones de la Iglesia, contando $110 millones invertidos por congregaciones e instituciones particulares, era del 9 por ciento anual. Ese rendimiento mantiene los fondos fiduciarios de la Iglesia Episcopal entre el primer 20 por ciento de sus homólogos que tienen bienes fiduciarios de más de $50 millones. “Este sólido rendimiento en modo alguno debilita mi resolución que mencionara hace unos meses de trabajar para reducir el pago de nuestros dividendos del 5 por ciento al 4,5 por ciento en los próximos años”, advirtió él. Al Consejo también se le pedirá en esta reunión que revise el año 2017 del presupuesto trienal 2016-2018 para reflejar cambios en los ingresos y gastos desde que la Convención General aprobara el presupuesto en julio de 2015. Entre los cambios se cuentan mayores ingresos diocesanos de lo previsto, retraso de ingresos por concepto de alquileres de media planta del Centro Denominacional de La Iglesia y más altas primas de seguros médicos de lo presupuestado, dijo Barnes.Barry Merer, director de la página web y de los servicios de las redes sociales [Social Media Services], junto a la ventana, le habla el día 20 a los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo en un salón de conferencias del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal mientras otros miembros del personal escuchan. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.El resto de la reuniónEl 21 de octubre el Consejo comenzará su jornada con la Santa Eucaristía en la histórica y cercana iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] en New Brunswick y luego pasará el resto del día con reuniones de sus cinco comités. El 22 de octubre cada uno de esos comités informarán al pleno y someterán resoluciones a la consideración de todo el organismo.La reunión está teniendo lugar en el Hotel Heldrich en New Brunswick, Nueva Jersey, aproximadamente a una hora al suroeste del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en el centro de Manhattan.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].Además, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Secretario, el Director de Operaciones, el Tesorero y Director de Finanzas tienen asiento y voz, pero no voto. – La Rda.

Scotland RWC 2015 squad selections spring some surprises

first_imgWednesday Sep 2, 2015 Scotland RWC 2015 squad selections spring some surprises Scotland head coach Vern Cotter announced his final 31-man Rugby World Cup squad in Edinburgh on Tuesday. Among those selected, there were notable omissions, with both Blair Cowan and John Barclay missing out in the back-row. 63-time capped Jim Hamilton also missed out on selection and took the opportunity to announce his international retirement with immediate effect. “Today is both a sad day and a day I feel extremely proud to have had. For I announce my retirement from international rugby,” Hamilton said in a personal statement. “Never in a million Saturday afternoons did I think I would have represented this beautiful country of Scotland 63 times on the rugby field. I have loved every single moment of wearing the thistle and feel extremely humble to have done it for 9 years.” “I wish everyone involved with Scottish Rugby all the best and I know consistent success is around the corner,” Hamilton concluded. Cotter has called up South African-born ‘project signings’ Willem Nel and Josh Strauss to the squad, despite the latter not qualifying for Scotland until their second pool match against the USA on September 27. Testament to the quality of back-rows in Scotland or perhaps a clear message sent by project signings is that Barclay and Cowan are joined on the side-lines by Glasgow’s Rob Harley who played every match of this year’s 6 Nations. Cotter has chosen three scrum-halves with Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Greig Laidlaw and Henry Pyrgos all making their World Cup debuts, with Finn Russell and Duncan Weir the fly-halves. Sean Maitland joins Sean Lamont, Tim Visser and Tommy Seymour despite continuing his recovery from injury, while centre Alex Dunbar failed in his race against fitness after knee surgery. Speaking at the squad announcement at Edinburgh University’s quad, Cotter said: “We’re very pleased to name the 31 and we’re confident these players will represent Scotland well in the Rugby World Cup.” “It’s been a tough but rewarding two months. We’re proud of the effort everyone has put in to this point. “Getting down to 31 has been a difficult process because all the players have represented themselves well in the opportunities given.  Cotter also said that his forwards/backs split was due in part, to the challenges the group possesses.  “We felt the split of 17 forwards and 14 backs gives us the best balance,” added Cotter.  “We have two games in four days followed by South Africa and Samoa, so we need to be robust and covered in both forwards and backs, while knowing we have players in the group who can play several positions.”  Final 31-man Scotland squad to compete in the 2015 Rugby World Cup Forwards:  Hookers: Fraser Brown (Glasgow Warriors), Ross Ford (Edinburgh Rugby), Stuart McInally (Edinburgh Rugby). Props: Alasdair Dickinson (Edinburgh Rugby), Ryan Grant (Glasgow Warriors), Gordon Reid (Glasgow Warriors), Willem Nel (Edinburgh Rugby), Jon Welsh (Newcastle Falcons). Second-rows: Grant Gilchrist (Edinburgh Rugby), Jonny Gray (Glasgow Warriors), Richie Gray (Castres), Tim Swinson (Glasgow Warriors). Back-rows: David Denton (Edinburgh Rugby), John Hardie (Unattached), Josh Strauss (Glasgow Warriors), Alasdair Strokosch (Perpignan), Ryan Wilson (Glasgow Warriors).  Backs:  Back three: Stuart Hogg (Glasgow Warriors), Sean Lamont (Glasgow Warriors), Sean Maitland (London Irish), Tommy Seymour (Glasgow Warriors), Tim Visser (Harlequins). Centres: Mark Bennett (Glasgow Warriors), Peter Horne (Glasgow Warriors), Matt Scott (Edinburgh Rugby), Richie Vernon (Glasgow Warriors).

A small hut like addition of 1,560 square feet (145 square meters) to an existing landed residential property in the Holland Village neighbourhood of Singapore is composed of a folded aluminium veil textured across the horizontal surface. This screen, set proud to the structural wall 10-inches (250-millimeters) mitigates thermal heat gain while producing a delightful pattern of light and shadow. The pattern across the façade is stretched along the horizontal axis, and stacked in three patterns, denying the normative conventions of scale to the two-storey object. Windows behind the veil are positioned to differing alignments and sizes, reinforcing a play of position and scale to undermine any registration of floor positions about the volume.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pencil OfficeSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of Pencil OfficeThe veil itself covers opaque and transparent surfaces alike, rendering the architecture as a discrete, almost toy-like object. Four specific protrusions – two for the entrance and exit, one for the skylight, and one for an unobstructed view – extend beyond the veil in a form that appears to be stretched and pulled. These disruptions are fabricated in concrete extending the inner structure to the exterior. Various other windows need for natural illumination are faced with operable screens in the same veil pattern allowing ventilation, lights, and view without the normative disruptions to the architectural façade while creating an atmosphere of hazy diffuse light and comfortable temperatures.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pencil OfficeSave this picture!Worm’s EyeSave this picture!Courtesy of Pencil OfficeLimited site area and setbacks transform the idealized hut form, carving it obliquely in plan, and thus creating a dramatic geological-like volume. Within, a bedroom, dining room and living room extension are found on the ground floor. A painting studio and gallery are found on the second storey, bathed in a veiled light quality as it is illuminated while protected from the heat and glare of the intense tropical sun. A simple yet generously scaled interior stair wraps about the interior chamfered walls, merging the various levels. Sandwiched by an 8-inch (200-millimeter) floor line and roof line, the hut house works with reduction as an architectural concept – reduction of materials, tones, and volumetric complexity – to amplify the presence of the veil and of the architecture itself.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pencil OfficeSave this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessJJ&S.M Houses / Atelier MimaSelected ProjectsSikmul / desi_architectsSelected Projects Share Photographs Architects: Pencil Office Area Area of this architecture project Singapore Area:  232 m² Area:  232 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY”center_img 2015 Photographs:  Courtesy of Pencil Office 2015 Architect of Record: Hut House / Pencil OfficeSave this projectSaveHut House / Pencil Office ArchDaily AKDA Architects Year:  CopyHouses•Singapore Houses CopyAbout this officePencil OfficeOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on February 19, 2016Cite: “Hut House / Pencil Office” 18 Feb 2016.
