Un campamento bíblico de verano bilingüe reúne a dos congregaciones

Foto de Sharon Sheridan.[Episcopal News Service] Esta es la historia de dos congregaciones, dos idiomas y una adolescente que ayudó a hermanarlas para lanzar un nuevo ministerio.A Hannah Kraft, una jovencita de 17 años de Morristown, Nueva Jersey, le encanta el español. Hace dos años, tomó un curso de inmersión en español en Costa Rica. El verano pasado, asistió a un “programa verdaderamente riguroso” en California. Cuando regresó, dijo ella, “quería conservar el español que había aprendido”.Fue así que Kraft se incorporó al estudio bíblico para adolescentes en Príncipe de Paz, una congregación no denominacional, compuesta mayoritariamente por guatemaltecos y hondureños, que durante tres años había alquilado un espacio para adorar en su parroquia, la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Episcopal Church] en Morristown. Ella esperaba mantener sus destrezas idiomáticas, y además la movía la curiosidad.“Ellos siempre eran esta especie de iglesia misteriosa que venía”, dijo ella. “Yo quería saber quiénes eran y en qué creían”.Kraft descubrió a un grupo de adolescentes muy serio respecto a su fe que no tenía problemas en compartirla públicamente con el grupo de jóvenes de San Pedro.“Esos chicos eran tan diferentes; en verdad les gustaba hablar de lo que sentían”, explica Kraft. “Eran muy serios respecto a sus creencias. No andaban haciendo tonterías”.“Los chicos eran realmente amables y sencillos”, agregó ella. “Me daba pena hablar español delante de ellos”. La maestra, Lesly Zuluaga, “sencillamente te llamaba y en verdad tenías que participar. Ella rompió la barrera”.Kraft esperaba poder ayudar a algunos de los otros estudiantes con el inglés, pero se dio cuenta de que todos ellos hablaban inglés bien. Sin embargo, algunos de sus padres, necesitaban ayuda. Fue así que ella y Zuluaga inauguraron una clase los viernes por la noche para enseñar inglés como segundo idioma, y comenzaron con cinco adultos. Adaptaron el currículo para responder a las necesidades de sus alumnos —algunos eran analfabetos— y se concentraron en destrezas idiomáticas prácticas tales como identificarse, escribir su dirección y proporcionar los números de seguro.Empezaron a sumarse más y más estudiantes, hasta que llegó a haber 30 en una clase. Kraft ayudó a dirigir una clase de entrenamiento para 30 miembros de San Pedro, donde su madre, la Rda. Janet Broderick, es la rectora. Un grupo se incorporó al programa como tutores.“La relación con Príncipe de Paz se hizo cada vez más cercana. Finalmente dijimos, ‘¿Qué queremos hacer para el verano?’”, contó Kraft. Los estudiantes adultos querían un lugar donde sus hijos pudieran ir durante el verano, pero no podían costear el enviarlos a los campamentos diurnos de la localidad.Los líderes de las dos congregaciones se reunieron para discutir la idea, y así nació el campamento bíblico de vacaciones bilingüe de San Pedro.“Se nos ocurrió la idea de que podría ser una buena manera de ayudar a la comunidad, especialmente a las familias de bajos ingresos de la comunidad hispana”, dijo Zuluaga, una de los organizadores del campamento. “Pensamos que sería una gran idea que los niños aprendieran al mismo tiempo de formar parte de un grupo social, en lugar de quedarse en casa”.San Pedro recibió una subvención de $20.000 de la Fundación Simon y otros $2.000 de la Fundación F.M. Kirby. La iglesia fue la sede del campamento, además de brindar atención antes y después para cerca de 50 niños cada día de la semana desde el 8 de julio al 2 de agosto. Una subvención Simon adicional hizo posible excursiones tres días a la semana durante las dos primeras semanas de agosto, dijo Dee Klikier, directora del campamento, administradora de las instalaciones de San Pedro y ex directora de una escuela primaria.Aproximadamente tres cuartas partes de los campistas, desde kindergarten a séptimo grado, procedían de las familias de Príncipe de Paz, dijo ella. Otros se enteraron porque se corrió la voz o porque vieron el anuncio, entre ellos una residente en Jersey City que trabaja en Morristown. “Fue un regalo del cielo para ella”.Los niños pasaron el tiempo en actividades tradicionales de los campamentos de verano —artes plásticas y música, práctica de deportes, clases de cocina y de computación, natación— así como en el estudio bíblico diario y asistiendo a la capilla dos veces al día.“Es realmente un trabajo agotador, pero ciertamente divertido”, dijo Kraft, la directora artística del campamento. “Este campamento definitivamente me ha ayudado a crecer”.El consejero Julio Monzón y la campista Stephany Argueta sumergen fresas en chocolate durante una clase de cocina en el campamento bíblico bilingüe de San Pedro, un empeño conjunto de la iglesia episcopal y de la iglesia Príncipe de Paz, a la que ellos pertenecen. Foto de Sharon Sheridan.La clase de cocina era la favorita de [la niña] de 12 años Stephany Argueta. “Uno prueba cosas nuevas”, “Lo hacen todo divertido”, dijo ella. “No hay nada aburrido en este campamento. Siempre hay una sonrisa en las caras de todos”.“Ha sido como venir a un nuevo mundo”, dijo Gabriela Argueta, de 9 años. A ella le gustaba más la capilla “porque aprendemos nuevas canciones y aprendemos que Dios es una persona maravillosa de conocer”.El personal incluía una mezcla de adultos y consejeros adolescentes mayores, así como adolescentes más jóvenes, a los que están adiestrando como consejeros, y voluntarios de ambas congregaciones.“He hecho un montón de amigos nuevos y he llegado a conocer a muchísimos niños también”, dijo Alaina Boccino, miembro del grupo de jóvenes de San Pedro que trabajó de voluntaria en el campamento. “Mezclar los grupos ha resultado muy divertido”.Julio Monzón, de 16 años y miembro de Príncipe de Paz, dijo que también le había encantado conocer a nuevas personas y que trabajar como consejero con alumnos de sexto y séptimo grados era “estupendo”.“Aprendes de ellos y recibes muchísimo de ellos”, dijo él. “Aprendes que eres paciente y que en verdad quieres a los niños”.Algunos niños asistieron con becas totales o parciales, y a todos los padres se les pidió que trabajaran voluntariamente tres horas, dijo Klikier. Los jueves por la noche, las familias del campamento y los miembros de San Pedro eran invitados a compartir una comida en el salón parroquial, donde los niños cantaban canciones y exhibían las obras de arte que habían hecho durante la semana.“Creo que esto ha venido a fortalecer la relación entre San Pedro y Príncipe de Paz”, afirmó Klikier. “Somos  dos iglesias muy diferentes”. Pero para ambas, agregó, “Jesús es el meollo de todo”.Klikier dijo que esperaba que la confianza adquirida gracias al campamento permitiera un mayor ministerio mutuo en el futuro. Y ella cree que los miembros de Príncipe de Paz ahora se sienten más en casa en San Pedro. “Ya no se sienten como inquilinos; se sienten mucho más como parte de las cosas”.Según dijo Zuluaga, “sé que [el campamento] ha creado relaciones que serán duraderas para mí, así como para los niños. Sabrán que existe un lugar donde pueden venir y sentirse acogidos”.– Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.Traducción de Vicente Echerri Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Por Sharon SheridanPosted Aug 19, 2013 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Un campamento bíblico de verano bilingüe reúne a dos congregaciones Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Bath, NC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Featured Events Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

RSF annual round-up: 110 journalists killed in 2015

first_img At least 67 killed while reporting or because of their work; RSF condemns failure to protect journalists, calls for “response to match the emergency”. A total of 110 journalists were killed in connection with their work or for unclear reasons in 2015, according to the round-up published today by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), which is in a position to say that 67 of them were targeted because of their work or were killed while reporting.These 67 deaths bring to 787 the total number of journalists killed in connection with their work since 2005. It has not been possible to clearly establish the circumstances or motives of this year’s 43 other deaths of journalists. Twenty-seven citizen-journalists and seven media workers were also killed in 2015.This disturbing situation is largely attributable to deliberate violence against journalists and is indicative of the failure of the initiatives so far taken to protect media personnel.A European country, France, was one of the deadliest countries for journalists in 2015. It ranked third, after Syria and Iraq. The January attack on Charlie Hebdo contributed to a reversal of last year’s trend, when two thirds of the deaths of occurred in war zones. This year, two thirds of the deaths were in countries “at peace.”The full 2015 round-up can be found here.“The creation of a specific mechanism for enforcing international law on the protection of journalists is absolutely essential,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“Non-state groups perpetrate targeted atrocities while too many governments do not comply with their obligations under international law. The 110 journalists killed this year need a response that matches the emergency. A special representative of the United Nations secretary-general for the safety of journalists must be appointed without delay.”In his annual report on the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity on 6 August 2015, UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon said: “I am deeply concerned about the failure to reduce the frequency and scale of targeted violence that journalists face and the near absolute impunity for such crimes.”In response to the persistence and variety of dangers facing journalists, RSF published a revised and amended version of its Safety Guide for Journalists in partnership with UNESCO on 15 December.RSF has been producing its annual round-up of violations against journalists for the past 20 years. It is based on precise data gathered by RSF in the course of its monitoring activities. The New York-based “Committee to Protect Journalists” is publishing its own round-up today.

Of the $500 million, the company spent $475 million to credit distressed borrowers and also established a mortgage origination program. The remaining $25 million provided customer relief by refinancing mortgages to unqualified customers.The bank also passed all of its compliance metrics with the exception of one due to formatting issues, but is in the process of being corrected.“SunTrust has satisfied its consumer relief obligations under the [National Mortgage Settlement],” said Joseph A. Smith, Jr., Monitor of the National Mortgage Settlement (NMS). “I will continue to monitor SunTrust’s consumer compliance obligations and will report my finding to the Court and the public in the future.”The $500 million was part of a larger settlement back in June of 2014 with the Justice Department, Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB), and states attorneys general. The remaining $418 million was paid to settle potential liability under the False Claims Act for originating and underwriting loans that violated its participation in the Federal Housing Administration’s insurance program.According to the settlement, SunTrust admitted to writing faulty loans between January 2006 and March 2012, as well as did not carry out its due diligence in creating quality control programs to identify defective loans, and further did not report to the HUD the defective loans it did manage to find. All-in-all, it is estimated that over 50 percent of SunTrust’s FHA-insured loans were not within FHA guidelines. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

Desperate search for 3 people missing in West Virginia mine; 1 survivor emerges

first_imgJodiJacobson/iStock(CLEAR CREEK, W.Va.) —  Rescue teams were exploring an underground West Virginia coal mine on Tuesday in search of two women and a man, after the fourth person in the group emerged on Monday night to report the location of the remaining three, according to mining and state officials.The two women and two men — local officials initially described the group as four men — were reported missing late Saturday near the Rock House Powellton mine in Clear Creek, West Virginia, according to the West Virginia Office of Miners’ Health, Safety and Training (MHS&T), which dispatched mining rescue teams along with other state and local resources.The three remaining people inside the mine include Kayla Williams, 25 Erica Treadway, 31, and Cody Beverly, 21, according to the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office Lt. M.A. McCray.Eddie Williams, 43, emerged from the mine alone and reported the location of the missing trio to authorities, the sheriff’s office spokesperson said.MHS&T officials activated the mine rescue team early Sunday morning after an abandoned ATV the group was believed to be riding was found near the mine entrance, officials said.West Virginia Governor Jim Justice said he and other state and local officials are doing everything they can to reach the men.“From the beginning I’ve said we needed to use all the resources available to us,” Justice said, according to a state press release.“Many prayers were answered when the one individual exited the mine with information about where the others were located,” he continued in the statement.“We are praying they can be found quickly and brought out to safety.”MHS&T rescue personnel are working with the West Virginia National Guard, the West Virginia State Police, the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office and the Boone County Sheriff’s Office to coordinate the rescue mission, officials said.McCray said the entry point to the mine was sealed at one point with a concrete wall and a fence across it, but had been since been torn down. McCray did not know whether the group now missing removed the barriers.The individuals did not enter at the main entrance, McCray said, but rather used what’s called a “punch out hole” – a small shaft either accidentally punched out of the side of a mountain or created for ventilation.McCray also said that a criminal investigation is pending, but is currently secondary to the rescue effort. It remained unclear on Tuesday what prompted the investigation. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
