Photo: Kit Doyle/RNS[Religion News Service] Bishops and leaders of a number of United Methodist groups have announced a proposed agreement to split the United Methodist Church.The proposal, called the Protocol of Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation, would create a new conservative “traditionalist” Methodist denomination that would receive $25 million over the next four years.“The undersigned, in recognition of the regional contexts and divergent points of view within the global United Methodist Church, propose separation as a faithful step with the possibility of continued cooperation around matters of shared interest, enabling each of us to authentically live out our faith,” the proposal reads.Pressure to split one of the largest denominations in the United States has grown since last year’s special session of the United Methodist General Conference approved the so-called Traditional Plan strengthening the church’s bans on the ordination and marriage of LGBTQ United Methodists.Approval of the plan has been met with resistance from progressive and moderate members of the second-largest Protestant denomination in the United States.And several groups have proposed legislation to split the denomination for consideration at the next regular meeting of the General Conference this May in Minneapolis.But members of the unofficial group of leaders who wrote and signed the agreement that was announced Jan. 3 say their proposal is the only one that includes representatives of all different theological viewpoints within the church, as well as clergy from across the global denomination. It also is signed by both the outgoing and incoming presidents of the United Methodist Council of Bishops.Read the full article here.

Fans support professional soccer

first_imgIt’s almost summer and football season is in full swing – for students loyal to the European and Mexican soccer leagues, that is. Every week, fans gather informally in the LaFortune Student Center to watch their favorite teams battle it out on the big screen. The Champions Leagues are currently in their playoff stages, and for senior Oscar Gonzalez, these crucial games could call him home to watch his local team, Tigres UANL, play in the finals. “It’s a team I’ve been following since I was a kid … It’s pretty important to me,” Gonzalez said. Gonzalez said he follows all five major soccer leagues and is considering skipping the Commencement ceremony for the North American Champions League finals if Tigres goes to the finals. “I’m a fanatic, and if they make it to the finals, I will surely skip [Commencement],” he said. LaFortune serves as a hub for the international games unavailable to students through Notre Dame’s regular Comcast cable offerings. “I know there are a lot of people on campus who like it and I’ll watch it with them in LaFortune, but not all my friends like soccer,” Gonzalez said. Gonzalez said he loves soccer because he grew up playing back home in Mexico. “You can easily play on the streets … People have soccer balls or just have a can, as long as you have something to kick around,” he said. Gonzalez said he preferred soccer over American football and basketball because soccer is a continuous game. “It’s not like American football [where] you play for ten seconds and stop for a little while,” he said. “Anybody can play it. You don’t have to be too fast or skilled … You can play and don’t have to be an athlete.” Sophomore Michael Gills said he follows his team, Newcastle United, both on the big screen in LaFortune and in his room. “I watch multiple games a week of soccer,” he said. “It’s pretty easy to watch here in LaFortune. I [also] watch in my room because I pay [extra] for the cable service.” Gills said he likes watching the games in LaFortune due to the exciting atmosphere that usually accompanies important games. “You come to LaFun and you see huge groups of people watching it,” he said. “All the students are very passionate about it, and I like to watch with them because they care a lot.” Gills said he has been watching soccer since he was born because his dad is from Newcastle. He said the Champions League is comprised of the top teams from around the world. “It’s the best players from around the world playing in one competition,” Gills said. “It happens every year, and [they] qualify by previous performances in your respective league.” Gills said one of the most appealing parts of soccer is its large audience. “Everybody watches it,” he said. It is really the world’s game.”last_img read more


Christmas: A time for Self Reflection – Opposition Leader

first_imgHon. Hector John. (file photo)During the Christmas season we share a time of joy, sharing, healing and forgiveness. These become the norm as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It brings the reassurance of peace on earth and goodwill towards men. This season also provides the opportunity for deep self reflection over the past year which ought to provide guidance for the coming year. We also examine our relationships with God and each other, while we also introspect on our personal growth and trials. The valuable and uninterrupted time taken to examine what worked and what failed should never be underestimated as it provides new possibilities towards future personal triumphs. In the Beatitudes in Matthew Chapter 5, we read, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” As we reflect on the past year, this scripture verse is very instructive. This verse underlines the magnitude of spiritual contemplation as it helps to filter out the negatives of this world. Spiritual contemplation also provides the latitude for more to be done through us in the sight of God that will positively impact those who are spiritually or physically weak. Have we spoken for the voiceless and helped bring clarity where ignorance exists? Did we challenged our spiritual, political and civic leaders towards ensuring the enhancement of the socio-economic situation of the less fortunate? These questions should confront our sincerity as we reflect during this season of Goodwill. We should always seek to be our brother’s keeper as we are empowered through soul-searching. That is why self reflection is paramount in the process of one’s personal growth. Learning something new about ourselves or learning from our own experiences can help achieve true personal growth. Personal growth is one of the greatest things which impacts on every aspect of someone’s life. That is why when we engage in deep self-analysis we ought not to be selective but honest, broadminded and detailed. Irrespective of how painful an experience might have been it has to be dealt with in order that new possibilities may spring out. When there is true personal growth one develops humility, compassion, integrity and responsibility. All these qualities are demonstrated during the celebration of Christ’s birth and this year is no exception.British Poet, Edward Young said, “A soul without reflection is like a pile without inhabitant, to ruin runs.” The great philosopher, Socrates also said “an unexamined life is not worth living”, this underlines the value of self reflection. That reflection has to be deep and sincere to achieve the desired result of self improvement. This soul searching should bring forth a renaissance. That rebirth should draw you closer to your Lord and Savior as you do things that will be pleasing in his sight. Let us all be a conduit of peace, joy and happiness and live lives of sacrifice for the common good of all. I encourage all to give with a willing heart and never be inhibited or be dictated by your financial limitations in order to give freely. “Freely you have received; freely give.”During this Christmas season as we all celebrate this joyous occasion with family and friends, I wish to invite us all to find some time to reflect. Let us do it for our personal growth as we seek to impact better the life of others. Let us be at peace with ourselves as we look forward to making a meaningful contribution to each other and our communities and by extension, our country, in the New Year. In this coming year we should also resolve to be void of selfishness, hatred and misrepresentation and replace these with a saturation of love, humility and moral purpose.I do invite all of us to act on this simple but priceless message of reflection during this Christmas season, and I along with the wonderful and productive people of my constituency to include, -Coulibistrie, Morne Rachette and Salisbury extend a Merry Christmas and Productive 2012 to everyone. God Bless you all. Merry Christmas.Honourable Hector JohnLeader of the Opposition United Workers Party 41 Views   one comment Tweet Share Sharecenter_img LocalNews Christmas: A time for Self Reflection – Opposition Leader by: – December 24, 2011 Sharing is caring!
