The Rugby Championship Review: Australia

first_imgAnd yet, the Wallabies overcame potential slip-ups against Argentina both at home and away thanks to Barnes’ accuracy in front of goal and the finishing of Digby Ioane. The Queensland Reds winger shone all too rarely in an Australian back line that has faded away since they lit up last year’s Tri-Nations tournament. Their outmuscling of the Springboks at home and the performance of the exciting Michael Hooper in Rosario were rare examples of forward dominance.When their stars return the Wallabies can be a force again, but the gap between themselves and the All Blacks has widened. The youthful 22 that took the field in Argentina will take plenty of heart from their win as they build towards 2015, but a successful tour of the Northern Hemisphere will be integral to the under-fire Robbie Deans keeping his job.Star Player: Nathan SharpeThe man who cannot retire. At least not until the Australia Rugby Union will let him. Being a veteran seems to suit Sharpe perfectly as he continues to inspire his teammates around him. With the Wallabies short of leadership following the loss of three captains in Horwill, Pocock and Genia, Sharpe has thrived and his performances have led to the ARU asking him to continue playing into the November Internationals.Rising Talent: Michael Hooper GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA – SEPTEMBER 15: Michael Hooper of the Australian Wallabies is tackled during the Rugby Championship match between the Australian Wallabies and Argentina at Skilled Park on September 15, 2012 on the Gold Coast, Australia. (Photo by Chris Hyde/Getty Images) Triumph in adversity: Nathan Sharpe has been irreplaceable during a tough championship for Robbie Deansby Ben ColesFinished: 2ndCONSIDERING THE enormous amount of opprobrium poured on Australia throughout The Rugby Championship, the fact that they finished the tournament in second place has been somewhat overlooked.When you factor in the fact that Australia were without James Horwill, Will Genia, James O’Connor, David Pocock, Quade Cooper, Drew Mitchell plus many more for either portions, or the duration of The Rugby Championship, and it’s a miracle they won a match at all given the youthful inexperience of their squad.Then to make a tricky situation worse, Quade Cooper declared to the media that the atmosphere in the Australian camp was “toxic” and that he would refuse to play for the Wallabies given the current tactical stifling of his attacking game and lack of national training centre. With Robbie Deans facing weekly calls from critics to leave his job, it has been far from the easiest of championships.This has mainly been down to the Wallabies aforementioned injury list and tactical approach. Persistent kicking from Berrick Barnes gained next to nothing as Australia threw away possession to the obvious discontent anger of their fans.The Wallabies inability to match the other three sides physically without Horwill and Pocock led to a chain effect of untidy ball at the breakdown, which left Barnes too often on the back foot. Nathan Sharpe at times was like a one-man army at the coal face.Out wide, denied of Will Genia’s clean service from the breakdown, Australia’s lack of depth at scrum-half was sorely exposed. Any side would struggle without their best players, but Australia have far weaker strength in depth than their rivals. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2012 has been Hooper’s year after a breakthrough season with the Brumbies and deputising for Pocock in the June Internationals against Wales. Much like Pocock, he is brilliant at the breakdown; physical and uncompromising, he has already been snapped up by the Waratahs for next season and is set to play a significant role this November.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencoles_last_img read more

Harlequins and Saracens pose strongest English threat in Europe

first_imgBut the manner of the performances from Harlequins and Saracens will have made other contenders for the title sit up and take notice. In May 2013, it will be six years since an English side last won the Heineken Cup, and although it’s early days, these two sides both appear to have wherewithal to break that run.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencoles_ LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 13: Nick Easter of Quins is tackled during the Heineken Cup Match between Harlequins and Biarritz Olympique Pays Basque at Twickenham Stoop on October 13, 2012 in London, England. (Photo by Tom Shaw/Getty Images) Powering on: Nick Easter led a dominant Harlequins pack against Biarritz last weekendby Ben ColesA BRIEF scan of the results from Round One of the Heineken Cup highlighted that English sides may not be as far off the pace when it comes to the Heineken Cup as some had predicted before the tournament began.Leicester’s poor decision-making cost them a win in Toulouse and Exeter were narrowly pipped in Dublin, but winning against Toulouse and Leinster away from home has always been the toughest of European challenges. Sale pulled off a comeback that Lazarus could be proud of against the Cardiff Blues and Northampton too responded with a barrage of tries after falling behind. Yet of the six English clubs competing in this season’s tournament, it was Harlequins and Saracens who truly laid down a marker on the opening weekend.The English champions faced a test of their character early in the first half against Biarritz with Nick Evans forced to leave the field. The 32-year-old former All Black has been essential to Harlequins success over the last two seasons, but a capable deputy was needed. Step forward young fly-half Ben Botica who came on and filled the role beautifully, working well with Danny Care to control the tempo as the home pack turned the screw.A 13-13 scoreline at half-time finished as 40-13. Biarritz won the Amlin Challenge Cup at The Stoop back in May but five months later, shorn of talismen Imanol Harinordoquy and Dimitri Yachvili, they were torn apart. Harlequins bubbled in the group stages last year with a memorable wins in Toulouse and away at Gloucester but ultimately fell short of the latter stages. By starting with a bang, their odds to win the tournament have shortened. As for Saracens, travelling to Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup last season was a horrible fixture. London Irish, Racing Métro and Cardiff all lost at Murrayfield, before four-time champions Toulouse also succumbed to the inventive Scottish side. For Saracens to then waltz into the Scottish capital and brutally dismantle the home side by scoring 45 unanswered points was a somewhat of a surprise. Edinburgh certainly had an off-day but the effectiveness of Steve Borthwick’s well-oiled lineout and vision of Charlie Hodgson and Owen Farrell comprehensively broke the will of the hosts.By picking up five points in Round One, both Harlequins, Saracens and also Northampton have put themselves in Position A to make the quarter-finals. Leicester’s tough group and opening loss means they must beat the Ospreys at Welford Road, while Exeter must travel to Clermont and Llanelli and Sale have to contend with French moneybags Toulon.last_img read more

Badger’s Barbarians can make Australia a laughing stock

first_imgUnder-fire Australia face the Barbarians on Saturday and will have to cast aside off-field issues to avoid an ignominious start to their tour Now, Cheika is an uncompromising, passionate character – belligerent with self-belief but hugely charismatic and innovative. The sight of him embracing every one of his Waratahs at the final whistle of the Super 15 victory over the Crusaders summed him up. However, his task is an intimidating one.Uprooting any detrimental attitude issues should be helped by skipper Michael Hooper and figures such as Will Genia, who rejoins Cooper in a blockbuster backline including Henry Speight for Saturday. That said, cracks can widen very easily if results do not cooperate. And wins will not come easy in November.First up this weekend, the Barbarians are a prickly proposition, far from an end-of-season pushover. Coached by John Kirwan, there is a distinctive tinge of Kiwi toughness – a superb back row of Adam Thomson, Matt Todd and Steven Luatua defining such steel. Slade sits at 10 on the back of his heart-breaking conversion and 56-cap Scot Alastair Kellock captains. No veterans slurring through the motions here, just a lot of hard-edged motivation.Speaking of which, a certain Nick Cummins is on one wing. Inevitably, he has been in morale-boosting mode this week and is eager to barge into Australia’s World Cup plans. Cummins said his dream would require some “bending” from his Japanese employers, but an eye-catching afternoon would surely alert Cheika. Honey Badger certainly has happy history of running wild and grabbing ‘meat’ at Twickenham:Should Cummins help deliver a famous Barbarians victory, there will be much to ponder on the Wallabies’ coach journey to Wales. Warren Gatland’s men are on a 20-game losing streak that must end before a rendezvous in Pool A at 2015. After that, Australia hit up Paris and Dublin before another World Cup dress rehearsal against England.In short, Saturday is a cast-iron must-win for Cheika on many levels. In these parts, the pressure on home nations is palpable. How often do we talk about targeting autumn wins against the southern hemisphere big boys? This time though, Australia might just be feeling hot under the collar from the off.Teams for Saturday at Twickenham LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It was difficult not to feel sorry for Nick Phipps on Monday as the Wallaby scrum-half fielded questions on sexism and misogyny in sport. Understandably awkward and sheepish, he resembled a neat personification of Australian rugby as a whole – desperate for some on-field action that might momentarily alleviate attention from embarrassing commotion.Of course, it was not Phipps’s intention to act as an emissary for female rights on this trip. The schedule represents an excruciatingly tough boomerang starting and ending at Twickenham. Following Saturday’s curtain-raiser against the Barbarians, there are clashes with Wales, France, Ireland and England. Wholehearted focus is imperative from everyone.Instead, Phipps found himself cleaning up the debris of a debacle featuring Super 15 champion and Waratahs team-mate Kurtley Beale, who is majorly responsible for the latest calamity to engulf the Antipodeans. Despite not actually being on tour as yet, the mercurial maverick’s involvement in a text message scandal has cast a lingering shadow over the party.Indeed, the chain of events since Beale first blew up at Di Patson on a flight to Sao Paolo at the start of this month has resembled a grubby farce. Because everything occurred as part of the on-going circus-cum-soap opera that is Australian rugby though, it has been painfully believable.Head coach Ewen McKenzie, who spent his year in charge laying honest foundations for the road to 2015, has relinquished his job and seen his considerable integrity damaged. Prior to the final Bledisloe game at Suncorp Stadium against New Zealand three weeks ago, he decided enough was enough.Prodigal son: Beale could rejoin Cheika’s Wallabies if he “gets fit”As a mark of the man, McKenzie told nobody and soldiered on until after the game. It must have been utterly gut-wrenching when Colin Slade kicked that touchline conversion to seal a 29-28 defeat. A fine Wallabies performance brought grim consolation perhaps, but John Eales still described the sight of McKenzie announcing his resignation and leaving the venue – where he had enjoyed so much success with the Reds – as “one of the saddest sights I’ve seen in sport.”Almost as disheartening has been the reaction to Beale’s hearing last Friday, which found him not guilty of any wrong-doing further than one brain-dead text message. While the Australian Rugby Union’s decision to fine him $45,000 felt like a bizarre attempt to cover all bases, the punishment was probably just about fair. Beale had been effectively suspended for two Tests and demonstrated genuine contrition.Still, some misguided social media shouts ignored the severity of the initial blunder altogether – one prominent blog suggesting Beale’s ability made it “worth managing the chaos”. Well, is it? Trading two senior staff members for a player, albeit an extremely talented one, is an insane indictment on a team’s priorities.Frankly, there is only so much crap you can sweep under the carpet. And the ARU’s rug looks fairly lumpy right now. A cash-strapped union’s need for bums on seats is spinning a vicious circle whereby player power has muddled hierarchy.Rewind 18 months or so. When Robbie Deans jumped before he was pushed, his relationship with Quade Cooper was cited as a huge frustration. Cooper’s Queensland ally McKenzie was brought in. In the wake of his fall-out with another high-profile play-maker, he is gone too. Enter Michael Cheika, Beale’s former mentor with the Waratahs. The precedent is there, and made more striking by Nathan Grey hinting that Beale could join this tour “if he gets himself fit”. Would it have been preferable to appoint a total outsider?

Rugby Championship games in London could become a regular thing

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos explains why Europe could stage Rugby Championship games more often Trick shot: Adam Ashley-Cooper scores one of his three tries against Argentina at RWC 2015. Photo: Getty Images The Rugby Championship is coming to London for the first time on Saturday 8 October with defending champions Australia taking on Argentina at Twickenham in a repeat of one of last year’s World Cup semi-finals.That match could become the first of many, with SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos keen to stage more Rugby Championship fixtures in Europe – and London in particular. It’s a way to expose the tournament to a wider audience.“We saw how positive the World Cup was in the UK and we feel our game is about taking it to as many supporters as possible,” says Marinos. “It’s a good opportunity for extra exposure and bringing a meaningful Rugby Championship game to London is something that will continue to promote rugby at a moment when its popularity is continuing to grow.“The style of play in the Rugby Championship is a very exportable commodity to further increase the attractiveness of the sport. People want to see a free-flowing style and the game is moving in that direction.”Regular-season NFL and NBA games are now staged in London and Marinos sees the UK capital as a key market for international sporting showpieces.“It’s testament to what a big sporting arena London is,” he says. “While the World Cup was on last year, the NFL were kicking off a game (between Jacksonville and Buffalo) in semi-final week. London is the destination for big sporting events and it’s a unique opportunity to show what a lot of skill and talent there is in rugby. “Australia and New Zealand have already taken international rugby abroad to the USA and to Hong Kong and people will continue to look at new markets, but Europe and the UK has such a strong rugby heritage and we at SANZAAR would like to continue that approach.”Adam Ashley-Cooper’s hat-trick of tries sealed a 29-15 win for Australia over Argentina at RWC 2015 last October and support for both sides should be strong again this year.Colourful crowd: Australia and Argentina fans enjoy the semi-final at Twickenham. Photo: Getty ImagesAs Marinos says: “Argentina have been making one of the fastest rises in international rugby and with many of their players in Europe there’s always going to be a strong affiliation for them.“Australia, New Zealand, South Africa all have huge ex-pat communities in the UK so these games will be attractive to them.”Tickets to Argentina v Australia at Twickenham are available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk from £45 for adults, £25 for children (U16) and a family package (2 adults & 2 children) for £115.

The referee was originally going to red card the wing before recognising the mitigation of Cornborough holding Banet’s leg to keep her in the breakdown.From that penalty, England opted for a five-metre lineout and at the third attempt (they were awarded two further penalties for maul infringements) they drove over the line with Lark Davies touching down for the try.Still, after England couldn’t make a five-minute spell in possession count, the French defence standing firm, Middleton emptied his bench midway through the second half, with all eight replacements coming on at once.At the double: Cyrielle Banet scored two tries for France at Twickenham (Getty Images)Then Banet struck again. France got their maul rolling from a lineout on the 22, edged forward and across the pitch through a series of strong carries before Banet went over in the corner. France had a 23-10 lead going into the final 15 minutes and looked like having the mentality to close it out.Then England came back. First Poppy Cleall reduced the deficit when she touched down from a strong driving maul in the 70th minute. Then Kildunne went over, hitting a good line in the 22 and having the power (with a little help from Claudia MacDonald) to stay on her feet and burst through a huddle of French defenders to score. Emily Scarratt’s conversion made it a one-point game going into the last five minutes.When Coumba Diallo stole an England lineout five metres out from the French line it looked like the visitors would hold on for the win. But England came again, patiently worked the phases and when that final penalty was awarded – for not rolling away – Scarratt duly stepped up to slot it. Emily Scarratt penalty secures dramatic win over FranceA last-minute penalty from Emily Scarratt gave England a dramatic 25-23 victory over France at Twickenham.The French had led 23-10 going into the last 15 minutes but the Red Roses staged a remarkable comeback to ensure they finished 2020 with seven wins from seven Tests – and extend their winning run to ten Internationals going back more than a year.It is also England’s seventh straight Test win over France, their closest European rivals who they will also play at the 2021 World Cup having both been drawn in Pool C.This performance was far from the convincing displays England showed in winning the Six Nations Grand Slam or even in beating France 33-10 last weekend, but the team did show grit and determination to come back and triumph.“With the character of the side, they found a way to win,” said England coach Simon Middleton. “That game was nowhere near what we’d have liked it to be, how we wanted it to pan out. That’s international rugby, it’s not always how you want it to be. We’ll learn a lot more from that than winning easy or staying in front.”France put England under huge pressure at the set-piece in the first half, a penalty for the visitors from a scrum in the second minute a sign of things to come. The Red Roses’ error count was also extremely high, with knock-ons and loose passes preventing them from building through the phases.England did score the first try, though, Zoe Harrison going over in the 17th minute after a fortuitous bounce of the ball…center_img It was their second try, just before the half-time whistle, that was the highlight of the opening 40. France launched an attack from inside their own half from a Daley-Mclean kick, Shannon Izar receiving the ball in the middle of the field, taking it wide and then running a switch inside to Cyrielle Banet, who broke clear and went over despite the tackle of Ellie Kildunne.

Photo: Jim GoodsonA half-way house to help parolees adjust to modern society is being planned by the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.A site in Texas has been selected and brothers meeting in Mississippi June 10-15 heard reports from the organization’s prison ministry volunteers who say such a facility is “sorely needed.”The proposal was delivered to the brothers during the 134-year-old ministry’s annual national council meeting held this year at the Bishop Duncan Gray Camp and Conference Center, a 700-acre facility of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi.The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a vital part of Episcopal Men’s Ministries, with 4,212 members in 355 chapters nationwide.For inmates who have served many years behind bars, the demands of adjusting to the pace of 21st Century life “are enormous,” Brother Jerry Bailey of Cleburne, Texas told the 34 brothers attending the organization’s national council meeting north of Jackson, Mississippi.Prison ministry and restorative justice has become a major ministry for brothers in Texas, New Jersey and South Carolina, among several sites.“It’s the most rewarding type of ministry I’ve been involved with,” Bailey said. He’s helped inmates for 30 years and has noticed it’s becoming “more and more difficult for former inmates to succeed once they leave prison.“The number of choices they have to make every day is enormous,” Bailey, a prison chaplain, said. “It overwhelms them and they find it’s easier to return to old patterns of living. Having a place they can go to live until they can get on their feet, find jobs and receive counseling is sorely needed.”The Brotherhood needs the wisdom of its entire membership to seek and find funding from a myriad of federal, state and private funding sources, Bailey said.“There is grant money available as well,” Bailey said.While some brothers expressed skepticism about raising, say, $500,000 dollars to get the project off the ground and up-and-running, the council unanimously agreed to back the project and begin the legal processes necessary to acquire a 20-acre site south of Fort Worth.“This property is available to us, it’s centrally located in the middle of the country and it could serve parolees from throughout the country,” Bailey said, noting that Texas has the largest number of prison inmates in the U.S.Brothers agreed that such a major project should be well within the scope of the organization’s membership.“We are men of God and we are capable of great things,” Vice-President Julian Korti said.Ugandan ministryKorti also delivered a report on the Brotherhood’s longtime involvement in Uganda, where some 40 young people housed in foster homes receive educational and other funding support from brothers throughout the U.S.“We would still like to establish a non-profit agency not run by the Brotherhood nor the Episcopal Church to receive funds from corporations and other organizations that will not donate funds to religious organizations,” Korti says.He’s hoping to put together a team to complete Hope International Services (HIS) this year.“African ministry is difficult and full of disappointments as well as successes,” Korti reported as he told the brothers about the plight of the first Brotherhood-educated student to receive a Ph.D. in mathematics.“He was prepared to begin teaching mathematics but soon fell ill to a heart defect and returned to Mukono, where he helps teach the young students,” Korti reported. “He is a valuable member of our Ugandan Brotherhood, but this is often the way it is in Africa – one step forward and one step backward.“We pray for his return to health.”Rebuilding the infrastructureBrother Jeff Butcher is vice president of field operations and he was recognized by Brotherhood President Robert Dennis for his “excellent and hard work” filling open positions at various assembly and diocesan levels.In year one of a “three-to-five-year plan,” Butcher recruited active new president Jack Hanstein for sprawling Province VIII (the Western U.S., including Hawaii and Alaska), six new diocesan coordinators in various provinces, 13 liaison brothers and 22 additional brothers currently in a discernment process regarding national leadership positions.For the second year in a row, chapters and assemblies took on special service projects in April during National Service Day.Episcopal and Anglican brothers completed 26 new service projects in 13 states as part of National Service Day. Six new service projects were completed in New York – the state with the most projects.“National Service Day has been a big success,” Dennis said. “The Methodist and Lutheran churches also conduct national service days in April and it gives us a good feeling to join our Christian brothers and sisters to reach out and help other in His name.”Vice-Presidents Roy Benavides and Jeff Butcher offered a report titled Making Us Relevant in the 21st Century.While Butcher is concentrating on human resources, Benavides has created social media sites. He has designed a Facebook page (Brotherhood of St. Andrew USA), Twitter account (Brothers Andrew-BStA) and a soon-to-come blog site.The process of creating a new web site for the organization utilizing the services of Digital Faith, which specializes in interactive sites that allow members (Brothers) to freely contribute in many ways, has also begun.Former Alpha director and current Anglican Church in North America’ s Diocese For The Sake of Others Bishop Todd Hunter was the conference’s guest speaker and preacher.He also stayed an extra day to help brothers better understand what is happening in this post-modern culture and how to “act like missionaries.” August 19, 2016 at 5:57 am I was fortunate to run across this wonderful article about your Brotherhood, and your interest in the need for action in the world itself. I’ve come to this piece in ENS in August, 2016, and I am currently curious to find out how all these dreams, and recent works are turning out.

Este día sirve para recordar a aquellos cuyas vidas cambiaron para siempre a causa del VIH y del SIDA. También ofrece una oportunidad para renovar nuestro compromiso de construir el reino de Dios, trabajando para terminar con la pandemia del SIDA. Este año, el Día Mundial del SIDA cae en el segundo día de Adviento, tiempo de esperanza y anticipación de la vida nueva  que nos trae el nacimiento de Jesús. Como lo hace el Adviento, el Día Mundial del SIDA nos invita a vivir con la alegría que ha de venir al continuar manteniendo la visión de una nueva vida libre de VIH y de SIDA.Hace tres décadas, cuando los científicos identificaron el VIH como la causa del SIDA, el contraer el virus era una sentencia de muerte. No existía tratamiento para la enfermedad. Hoy, los avances en el tratamiento hacen posible que las personas con VIH vivan largas y plenas vidas. Mejores servicios de prevención ayudan a frenar nuevas infecciones. Reconocemos y celebramos este progreso, pero permanecemos firmes ante los grandes retos pendientes. El objetivo sigue siendo. “Llegar a cero: Cero a nuevas infecciones por el VIH Cero a las discriminaciones. Cero a muertes relacionadas con el SIDA…”En el 2013, dos millones cien mil personas se infectaron con el VIH y un millón y medio de personas murieron a causa de enfermedades relacionadas con el SIDA en todo el mundo. De los 35 millones de personas que actualmente viven con el VIH, sólo 13,6 millones tienen acceso a los medicamentos antirretrovirales. Además, el estigma y la discriminación hacia las personas afectadas con el VIH y el SIDA siguen siendo un problema importante en esta lucha. Las iglesias y otras comunidades de fe en todo el mundo están bien adecuadas para hacer frente al estigma social asociado con el VIH y el SIDA, y oran por la unidad de propósito en esta tarea entre los líderes religiosos de todo el mundo.La pobreza y la marginación de poblaciones clave y vulnerables como (lesbianas, gays, bisexuales, transgénero e intersexuales, trabajadores sexuales, usuarios de drogas inyectables, presos, migrantes, mujeres y  niñas) son los principales contribuyentes a la propagación del VIH. Las tasas de infección dentro de estas poblaciones son desproporcionadamente altas, y sin embargo, pocos tienen acceso a un tratamiento que salve la vida. Tanto la Iglesia Episcopal como la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América se han comprometido a luchar contra el VIH y el SIDA, y a trabajar para poner fin a la pobreza, tanto en nuestras propias comunidades como en todo el mundo. El año que viene vamos a desafiar a nuestras iglesias a que encuentren  mayor sinergia entre estos dos imperativos evangélicos relacionados. También vamos a seguir alentando a un asesoramiento y pruebas voluntarias.Asegurar que todas las personas que viven con el VIH tengan acceso a servicios de prevención, atención y tratamiento debe seguir siendo el foco de nuestros ministerios de VIH y SIDA, tanto aquí en el país como en el extranjero. Animamos a los luteranos y a los episcopales de todo el mundo a que apoyen los esfuerzos de nuestros gobiernos, de iglesias y de otros socios para que proporcionen recursos a los servicios de tratamiento, atención y prevención. También desafiamos a la Administración y al Congreso a que aumenten la financiación de PEPFAR; al Fondo Mundial de Lucha contra el SIDA, la Tuberculosis y la Malaria; y a programas nacionales que proporcionan atención preventiva y tratamiento en Estados Unidos. También instamos a los gobiernos a que apoyen la inclusión de la meta propuesta de terminar con la epidemia del SIDA, la tuberculosis y la malaria para el año 2030 en la agenda de desarrollo de las Naciones Unidas post-2015.“El Señor me ha ungido… para consolar a los que lloran”, escribe el profeta Isaías en un pasaje que episcopales y luteranos oirán este Adviento, “para darles gloria en lugar de ceniza, óleo de gozo en lugar de luto, el manto de la alegría en lugar de un espíritu angustiado”. Que en este Adviento podamos vivir estas palabras con fervor y alegría al paso que nos comprometemos nuevamente a la búsqueda de un mundo sin SIDA..La Revdma.

The church has a role … to build friends in the world, and become a practitioner of the word ‘shall not learn war’ as written in the Bible.”The bishop asked Japanese Anglicans to give prayerful consideration to the statement and to possible ways to engage the tense situation in Okinawa.
