Anglican global identity is not defined by a positioning in favor or against homosexual clergy and women bishops. The overall depth of our tradition, and particularly its spirituality and liturgy, still nurtures the life of millions of Christians, including some who have formally left.“At the same time, and although it is highly ignored, despite the so-called desperate situation of the Anglican Communion its churches welcome each year a considerable number of Christians who enjoy the spiritual solace provided by Anglican inclusivity. Faith in the Anglican Communion needs to be reaffirmed.”In the piece, which alternated between the emotional and the cerebral, Tinterhoff, an academic and author, wrote about how attending Evensong had changed her life forever. “For the first time in my life, I encountered God during a service … I came ill, hungry and thirsty; I left fed, healed and renewed by the beauty of holiness.”She explained that the Church of England is the only part of the Christian Church she can grow and consequently hear God. “I am able to do so because the Anglican tradition, which has welcomed me so generously, not only allows me to be a mature believer, but encourages me to be so. I enjoy the liberty that Anglicanism gives me as a scholar, and that I could not find anywhere else.”Tinterhoff’s prize-winning essay was one of 64 entries to the competition from across the Anglican Communion. Submission came from Australia, the United States, the Caribbean, several European countries including the United Kingdom, and four countries in Africa. The entries were judged by two retired bishops diocesan, the Rt. Rev. Mark Santer and the Rt. Rev. Michael Turnbull, who were unanimous in selecting the winner.St. Boniface Trust is a small Anglican charity that ran the competition because its trustees have been increasingly concerned that yet more divisions are being created between the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches. They also believe there is a need for a “clearer understanding of what it means to be an Anglican.”Trust Chairman the Ven. Robin Turner said, “The idea of an essay competition was conceived by Canon John Townroe, former warden of St. Boniface College in Warminster, as a way of obtaining some fresh thinking on the subject.”The winning essay can be read  here. There are also plans to produce a booklet containing extracts from the other entries.

Woman accuses Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner of holding ‘WTF’ paper

first_imgKerner provided a statement Wednesday to our news partner,WPTV NewsChannel 5, along with a picture of the paper in question. “The county attorney printed me a new copy of the BOCC rules because I used hers earlier in the day. She delivered a new copy with this humorous preprinted note pad attached to it. I raised it during the meeting to show her I received it. A lady was testifying at that time about why masks don’t need to be worn. She became very upset. She thought I was holding up a ‘wtf’ sign in reference to her anti-mask position. I was not. I apologized to her for the confusion. This is a copy of the preprinted sticky note.” During her speech about why masks don’t need to worn, a woman says Mayor Dave Kerner was holding up a piece of paper with the words “WTF” on it while she was at the podium in front of Palm Beach County Commissioners.Jean-Marie Nacer stopped in the middle of her speech and said  “I’m sorry. You just held up a sign that says ‘WTF.’ Mayor Kerner, you held up a sign to (Commissioner Melissa) McKinlay that says ‘WTF.’ Do you want to show public record what you just held up? Show me that sign for public record as I’m speaking to you. It says ‘WTF.’ I want that on public record.”Mayor Kerner said “This is a record from our counsel, and it has nothing to do with you,” he told her.Kerner apologized to Nacer for interrupting her, but she wasn’t having it.“How rude,” she told him.last_img read more
