Both the Family Eucharist and the later Choral Eucharist were completely full for the joyful homecoming. Photo/Nancy Ezell Suggs[Episcopal News Service] Displaced for one year, one month, and one week, the congregation of Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, returned home to its historic sanctuary this past Sunday, Sept. 30.A fixture of the city skyline for 167 years, the Gothic church was condemned following the Virginia earthquake of August 2011, after seismic sensors detected movement in the clerestory walls. After extensive and painstaking work to replace and strengthen disintegrating 19th century mortar, Grace was deemed “safer than the day it was built,” and reopened for Feast of St. Michael and All Angels.In his family service homily, Grace’s rector, the Rev. Canon Michael Wright, said: “Yes, our walls have been strengthened, but in revealing that weakness, the entire church has been healed and strengthened in community, from without and within…Like the Children of Israel, we would never have chosen to endure a time in the wilderness, but we did discover some incredible gifts along the way. And we have discovered God in new ways and in different places.”In 2006, Grace Church was poised to build a new parish hall to serve its growing congregation. During preparations, engineers discovered that the limestone mortar used in brick construction in the 1800s had become weak and powdery over time, causing the tower to lean and extensive cracking in its clerestory walls. Phase I in 2008 stabilized the steeple and included installation of corrosion-proof metal rods, and the injection of an epoxy substance in thousands of bored holes in the masonry walls. This work, which extended over three years at a cost of approximately $10 million, was completed in 2010. The planned second phase had to be expedited following the 2011 Virginia earthquake, which caused the clerestory walls to delaminate and the historic church to be condemned. After being displaced for more than a year, it reopened on Sept. 30 in time for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. Photo/Nancy Ezell SuggsDuring most of the reconstruction, the 9 a.m. family service was held in the church’s parish building, Hanahan Hall. But early services were held next door at Mt. Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church, and for the 11 a.m. Eucharist, Grace has been a recipient of the generous hospitality of the oldest Roman Catholic parish in the Carolinas—St. Mary of the Annunciation. These friendships promise to remain; Wright has been asked to deliver the homily for a Sunday Roman Catholic Mass in October.The congregation has celebrated both Easter and Christmas Lessons and Carols in the Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Synagogue, an offering of a sacred space that celebrated the unity between two faiths. The city’s Lutheran, Unitarian, Episcopal and Presbyterian churches have generously opened their doors for weddings, baptisms, funerals, and festivals during this yearlong time of both wandering and welcome.Indeed, Grace Church received encouragement from the wider Episcopal Church family, from Holy Cross Faith Memorial at Pawley’s Island, from Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, to the clergy and leaders throughout the church. The Episcopal congregation has expressed its gratitude for being part of a church that is praying for them beyond its borders.“Did we know such goodness was present, freely offered and joyfully celebrated beyond our own sacred walls?” Wright asked during his sermon. “We do now!”The church was filled Sept. 30 for both the 9 a.m. Family Eucharist and the 11 a.m. Choral Eucharist, with members old and young, new and long standing.Anne Hawkes, a retired English professor and church greeter, admits she will miss the close-knit parish hall services. “You could look across the room and see families and people you knew. It was more intimate,” she said. “But of course, I’m thrilled we’re back in the church. I’ve missed going to the communion rail in the sanctuary. It was funny though, in Hanahan Hall, you couldn’t kneel; there wasn’t room. Today, we got to the parts of the services where we typically kneel, and we had to feel our way again.”Nancy Ezell Suggs, director of parish life, called this first day of service “emotional overload. I could see older parishioners coming in, and the return was so important to them. But also the kids…the Children’s Choir was thrilled. And some of our new children had never been in the church, or if they were very young, they had no memory of it.”Grace’s rector, the Rev. Canon Michael Wright, conducts the children’s sermon during the Family Eucharist on Sunday, Sept. 30, with a little help from puppet, Bartholomew the Sheep (on the arm of Rob Donehue, director of youth & young adult ministries). Photo/Nancy Ezell SuggsBartholomew, the rowdy sheep puppet (on the arm of Rob Donehue, director of youth & young adult ministries) who pokes fun of Father Michael for the benefit of the congregation’s littlest members, asked the children what was different about church today. Small, awed voices piped, “tall” and “big.” But when he asked what was the same, they all shouted, “The people!”“At the 9 o’clock, there was a whole lot of life, and excitement with the children,” said Hawkes. “It was nice to see that you can get that in the big church too.”Grace has been in a prolonged period of growth. A 2010 survey showed that one in four have been members here for fewer than five years, and one in two for fewer than 10 years.In 2005, this flourishing parish began to raise funds to expand its facility. But when architects were called in, they had some distressing news to report, Ezell Suggs said. “The steeple was leaning six inches, the walls were listing. The focus of the campaign changed from expanding ministry to saving our church home.”After the 2011 Virginia earthquake, Grace Church’s clerestory walls were delaminating, separating internally like a zipper. Bolts and plates were used as clamps, with flowable grout used to fill all of the voids, solidifying the entire wall. Weak areas were reinforced and the building’s historic wood timbers were secured. Including all of the bolts and grout holds, over 2000 holes were drilled to stabilize the clerestory walls. Photo/Nancy Ezell SuggsThe first phase of the project, a $12 million renovation of the church tower, began in 2008 and had just been completed when the earthquake struck. The tower remained strong, but sensors indicated that the stucco-over-brick clerestory walls were delaminating, separating internally like a zipper. The problem was serious enough to condemn the church as well as to displace the adjacent church school kindergarten.On Easter Day, Grace launched a new $5 million capital campaign: Home to Grace. The funds have been used to plate and regrout the clerestory walls, and also will be used to pay down the remainder of the loan for the tower work.Despite its displacement, new members have continued to pour into the historic church community for its welcoming environment and energetic attitude. For many, Sunday was their first time entering the historic sanctuary and worshiping from pews instead of folding chairs, and a first chance to see the famous stained glass windows.Engineer Joel Anderson teaches Sunday school and is deeply committed to Grace’s Episcopal Youth Community. Although he acknowledges that the church is its people, not its walls, “We can be a wonderful thriving church in a warehouse, but we want to grow. And it’s hard to grow when you’re crammed in Hanahan Hall. We’re the beneficiaries of a wonderful building, and we are caretakers for the next generation. Our church inspires us in our faith. The high ceilings, the beauty of it, you can’t walk in there without feeling like you’re in a holy place. You have to look up.”Members gathered in a special tent Sunday following the 9 a.m. Family Eucharist. The church’s congregation has been a long period of growth, and is still growing, despite being displaced from its church home for more than a year. During its time in the wilderness, communities of all faiths offered their churches, chapels and synagogues to Grace’s grateful congregation for services, baptisms, funerals, festivals and weddings. Photo/Nancy Ezell SuggsElizabeth Spitz, one of Grace’s young adult members, has been a loyal parishioner since the third grade. As a youth acolyte, one of her favorite memories is of the late rector explaining the concept of deliberate imperfections in church architecture, and pointing out the crosses painted on the ceiling, where one is missing. “I look at that missing cross every time I go up for communion, and I have missed seeing it.”She adds, “Our church is beautiful, and I admire all of the things people do to make it and keep it that way: the flower guild, the embroidered kneelers, the people that make it unique and different. There are kneelers for branches of the armed services, or depicting scenes from the Bible or from our church stained glass windows. People really care about the building and the way it looks and making it beautiful.”Judging from the throngs of delighted children, grandparents, and parents chattering between services, this parish agrees, “It’s good to be home.”— Sarah Moïse Young is a freelance writer and editor in Charleston, South Carolina, and a 25-year member of Grace Episcopal Church.

That did not happen at the last Convention. The authorization by Convention was to allow a blessing of same gender relationships. That has taken a draconian leap – by activists – to now mean priests legally wedding same gender couples. The absolute dishonesty of this is staggering, but not unexpected.

He said he knew that many diocesan priests were preparing to officiate at those weddings.Beckwith allowed Newark clergy to bless civil unions starting in February 2007 after New Jersey enacted a civil union law. His Oct. 18 statement listed his expectations for clergy who officiate at marriages.In the Diocese of New Jersey, clergy were being sent a pastoral letter Oct. 21 from Bishop George Councell, who is due to retire Nov. 2, and Bishop-elect William H. Stokes, who will be ordained and consecrated that day, outlining guidelines for clergy who are asked to perform same-sex marriages.“We are entering a new era in society and in the life of the Church,” said Councell and Stokes in the letter. “We have both publicly stated our clear support of this right for same-sex couples and rejoice at the court’s decision. Many same-sex couples have longed to have their relationships afforded the same civil rights and privileges as heterosexual couples. It is also true that many same-sex couples long to be married in the Church and to have the sacramental nature of their relationship acknowledged and blessed by, and within, the Church.”Councell and Stokes asked the clergy to have “generous hearts” and to “honor and respect” for those who disagree with the court’s decisions and with the bishops’ decision to permit same-sex marriages in diocesan churches.The bishops in both dioceses told their clergy that they should use the liturgy for same-sex blessings approved at the 2012 General Convention.On Sept. 26, Judge Mary C. Jacobson of the State Superior Court in Mercer County ruled that if the state failed to allow same-sex marriage, it would deprive state residents of rights guaranteed them in June by the U.S. Supreme Court. She ordered the state to begin to allow same-sex marriage on Oct. 21.Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whom many consider a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016, said he would appeal the ruling and asked the state Supreme Court to stay Jacobson’s ruling. He had said he wanted the issue put to state voters in a referendum. In February 2012, he vetoed a same-sex marriage bill passed by the state Legislature.However, on Oct. 18, the court refused Christie’s request and the governor announced on Oct. 21 that he was dropping his appeal.Fourteen states and the District of Columbia now allow same-sex marriage. Thirty states ban such marriages and five allow civil unions or comprehensive domestic partnerships. More information is here. Only New Mexico has not enacted legislation allowing or banning marriage or other legal status. That state’s Supreme Court is due to consider the issue at a hearing Oct. 23.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. Doug Desper says: November 6, 2013 at 7:27 pm Marriage between a man and a woman was originally defined by a “dominant cultural expression.” And this definition has achieved a validity. Why then should not the definition of marriage be re-defined or defined more broadly by a “dominant cultural expression.?” One has to wonder if some of the late-in-history strictures against same-sex unions were published by the hierarchy of the Church on earth to facilitate the propagation of the faith rather than from a Heavenly revelation. The Bible embraces male and female relationships which constitute a significant percentage of unions; however, it is unfortnately silent on the many types of social and sexual direction which are significant in number to be also considered as legitimate expressions of human interaction. The Church once posited that the earth was indeed flat,but that notion has been superseded; and in other areas of knowledge, there are discoveries which represent huge advances in the knowledge that was extant at the time that history yielded to the advent of Christianity. Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Submit an Event Listing Course Director Jerusalem, Israel October 25, 2013 at 9:05 am Canonical disregard to the meaning of marriage in this Church – such as what is being employed in New Jersey – only results in keeping the Church in chronic turmoil. If the wider Church lets this go on it contradicts any critique alleging “lawlessness” of the several departing dioceses who seceded due to their view of incongruence and canonical “cherry-picking” in the decision-making of the wider Church. Based on the Dioceses of New Jersey and Newark’s trajectory for 40 years they appear to be none too concerned about the niceties of such conciliar relations, self-restraint, nor retaining their own membership. Their statistics are hostile witnesses to how a pursuit of revisionism has emptied their pews. Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA Doug Desper says: October 23, 2013 at 2:52 pm Marriage is and will always be what it was: a relationship of committed mutual self-giving honored by church and state. The definition has not changed. What has changed is who may have access to that relationship. Robert w.

The Church has acted as an agent of the State…as in “By the power invested in me by the state of __________, I now pronounce you Husband and Wife. The problem is that on this issue, Christ was pretty specific. (Matthew 19, 4-6)It is also not an anti/pro GLBT issue. In the same chapter of Matthew, I believe Christ tangentially addresses that issue with a great deal of delicacy.The Church always has, and always should bless loving relationships. I just do not believe, if we are followers of Christ, we should call these rites “marriage” within the Church.

The Church has for all of its history decided that difference, mainly by being faithful to the words of Jesus. When the dominant cultural expressions perverted the meaning of marriage, the Church continued to teach the Biblical design. If marriage is but a contract then that means that the Church is reduced to the mere chaplain to Caesar. Forgetting the legal contract, there is the sacramental nature of marriage that the Church was given as an apostolic teaching by Christ himself. Matthew 19 refers back to Genesis 2. This generation of Episcopalians has not found anything “new” which would require revision. Notwithstanding that, the older Prayer Books’ language on marriage have been tossed away as has the Scriptural basis behind the liturgy. God’s design in Genesis 2 has been distorted through many guises: marital slavery, multiple wives, chattel, etc. Each time these cultures have demanded some type of “new” understanding and have equally demanded religious consent to it. Our point of reference should always be that marriage is a sacrament referred to by Christ, and it’s not just an acknowledgement of an expression of love in this “new” time. I’m afraid, however, that each succession of General Conventions will have delegates who want to make their mark on the world — and I pray to God that they don’t smudge us all with the mark of Cain.

Mariela Castro Espín, April 25. Seated is LeiLani Dowell.WW photo: Brenda RyanNew York — An inspiring and electrifying meeting was held at the Solidarity Center in New York City on April 25 featuring Mariela Castro Espín, the director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX) in Havana, Cuba, and a deputy of the Cuban parliament, the National Assembly of People’s Power. The meeting was sponsored by the International Action Center. Due to security concerns and limited seating, it was an invitations-only meeting.The multinational, multigenerational crowd — which included members of the LGBTQ+, Latin American, and African-American communities — was moved to tears by the momentous gains in Cuba, described by Castro Espín, in combatting homophobia, transphobia and sexism, as well as racism. Castro Espín stressed that these issues are, above all, class issues, and that her country continues to fight for equality on all levels. She also praised the efforts of the U.S. activists in the crowd, saying she felt very much at home with those at the meeting. Pro-Cuban revolutionary posters and banners encircled the office.Comments from the floor showed the depth of respect, love and solidarity for Castro Espín and the Cuban revolution. Lucy Pagoada of Honduras USA Resistencia described how the Cuban revolution served to inspire the resistance in Honduras and throughout Latin America to continue, and the exciting integration and unity of those struggles.Nieves Ayress from La Peña del Bronx, who survived torture under the fascistic Pinochet regime in Chile during the early 1970s and Marina Diaz, a Guatemalan activist from the May 1 Coalition also paid tribute to Castro and the Cuban revolution.Black activist, Brenda Stokely, a leader of the Million Worker March Movement, publicly thanked Cuba for providing political asylum to Assata Shakur.A member of TransJustice, a program of the Audre Lorde Project that fights for the rights of transgender and gender-non-conforming people of color in the U.S., said that CENESEX seemed like a “paradise” for their constituents. Among many projects undertaken in support of the transgender community in Cuba, Castro Espín and CENESEX pushed for legislation allowing transgender people in Cuba to receive hormones and gender reassignment surgeries free of charge. The law was passed in June of 2008.Solidarity messages were also delivered from Leslie Feinberg, a member of Workers World Party and a world-renowned author and activist for LGBTQ+ rights, and IAC founder and former U.S. attorney general, Ramsey Clark.Teresa Gutierrez, IAC co-director, urged everyone to “get on the bus” for a June 1st protest in Washington, D.C., in support of the Cuban Five, five Cuban heroes unjustly imprisoned in U.S. federal prisons for attempting to protect their country from terrorist attacks. See thecuban5.org for more information and call 347-201-3728 for $5 round-trip bus tickets from New York to Washington, D.C.Gutierrez went on to say, “The LGBTQ community here has made great strides and has even won the right of same-sex marriage in some states in the U.S. But what socialist Cuba has done for LGBTQ people has gone much further and is much deeper thanks to the building of socialism there.”Castro Espín is also a member of the Direct Action Group for Preventing, Confronting, and Combatting AIDS, and director of the journal, Sexología y Sociedad. She was denied the right to travel to Philadelphia by the U.S. State Department to attend the Equality Forum 2013 Summit, a May 2-5 global LGBTQ+ conference, where she was scheduled to receive an award.Cuban diplomats are denied the right to travel beyond a 25-mile radius from within New York without permission from the U.S. government, another example of more than 50 years of U.S. government hostility exhibited against the sovereignty of the Cuban Revolution.The writer, a LGBTQ+ activist, gave a welcoming to Castro Espín at the meeting.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

In 2016, the start-up rate was 6.1 percent, the highest it’s been since 2009.Former and current Horned Frogs have been part of this movement.Carolyn Phillips, owner and chief alchemist of Alchemy Pops, started her gourmet popsicle company in 2015 and it’s grown quickly.The TCU graduate says she hadn’t planned to start a company but was inspired after she froze a batch of popsicles for her friends, who liked the flavors. From there, Phillips launched Alchemy Pops as a mobile catering company serving her frozen treats at events and out of freezer carts.With several competitors selling similar products in Fort Worth, Phillips emphasizes marketing as the key to staying competitive. To spread the company’s brand, she had to get creative.“I’m just in there shivering, you know, inviting people to help us from a very vulnerable place of saying ‘I am literally freezing inside of this freezer’ but also, ‘I’m a person trying to put this product out into the world,’” she said.Now she’s preparing for a company milestone — opening a retail store on the 400 block of South Main St.“We’ll have somewhere our brand can really come to life for our customers,” Phillips said. “Now they’ll get to walk into a place that’s totally our own, which we’ve never had before.”Alchemy, from which the shop gets its name, refers to transforming something into gold. It’s a process Phillips compared to her journey.“Alchemy Pops as my own business is kind of my own golden opportunity to do something for myself, do something for my family [and] create something that is specific to me that is my vision,” she said.While Phillips prepares for her company’s newest addition, some students are already launching companies before graduation.Paul Freeman, a business information systems and supply chain management double major, is the founder of Headstrong Wearables. His product is a microchip that can help prevent construction workers from collapsing due to heat exhaustion.Freeman noticed this problem during a summer internship working for a railroad where he saw several employees had to be taken to urgent care after an incident. Afterwards, he created the chip, which can be inserted into a hard hat, that tracks an employees’ heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, so managers can be alerted if they’re in danger.Headstrong Wearables has already received attention from Coleman Industrial Construction, who wants the product to be tested on its job sites.Freeman started promoting his invention during TCU’s Entrepreneurship Club Elevator Pitch Competition, where he won first place.TCU then sponsored his trip to Florida where he pitched again at the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization’s national conference where he was placed sixth best pitch in the country.“It was just an incredible experience,” Freeman said. “I was able to meet a lot of really incredible entrepreneurs and people in the industry. Hopefully, those connections, moving forward, will be beneficial.”He said there’s been a lot of interest in his product, so he wants to continue working on Headstrong Wearables over the summer.Freeman encourages students to follow their passions by finding a problem in the world that bothers them and making their own solution. He said once they find a passion, “the work is easy.”Evan Saperstein is doing just that, but he’s not a student.The Hays Hall Director is also the creator of Sap N’ Stacks, a brand of vegan pancake mix he created to give people a healthier breakfast option.His company started when he cooked breakfast for the hall director staff during a retreat. Saperstein said many of them were surprised how much they liked his pancakes.“They told me I should jar it and sell it,” he said. “I know they were joking, but I actually jarred it and started selling it.”Evan Saperstein is the creator of Sap N’ Stacks, a brand of vegan pancake mixes. (Photo courtesy of Evan Saperstein)Saperstein talked about how veganism has helped him improve his health.He adopted the vegan diet in 2011 and found that it made competing in triathlons much easier for him, to the surprise of other participants. Training without meat and eggs, he said, was even better for improving his physical fitness.Now he’d like other people to try it out too.Sap N’ Stacks has mostly reached his residents and local marketplaces, so Saperstein pitched his idea at a 1 Million Cups event at the TCU Campus Store to seek feedback. Audience members were receptive to his presentation and tried samples of his miniature pancakes.He expressed his excitement about presenting his brand to an audience for the first time and his hopes to make this his full-time job.“For me to take this on and get the positive response feedback I got here is awesome,” Saperstein said. “It’s just great. It’s like a thumbs up in the right direction.”Students and alumni seeking advice about starting a business can visit the Entrepreneurship Office on the third floor of Smith Hall for help.
