Craig Chalmers believes Scotland can turn it around

first_imgDuring his tour with Scotland to South AfricaTHE No 10 slot has been a problem for Scotland in recent years and after the defeat to Ireland I’d like to see Duncan Weir become involved with the senior squad.Ruaridh Jackson looked nervous on his first Test start, and given he was brought in to play flat it’s ironic that he kicked a lot in the first 20 minutes, and often not well. He chose a lot of wrong options and though Dan Parks did attack the line when he came on, I’d like to see Weir given a chance before the World Cup.Weir, 19, kicks as long and as accurately as Parks, he tackles hard, and he’ll have a dig at the line. He can manage a game really well and best of all he’s not the sort of guy to be fazed by anything – he brushes off setbacks. His distribution needs to improve but in the long term I believe he’ll be a better player than Jackson, his 23-year-old colleague at Glasgow.After all the hype and optimism of the autumn, Scotland haven’t delivered in this Six Nations. Unforced errors are killing us and, despite Paris, we still can’t score tries. Our last championship try at Murrayfield was by Scott Gray against Italy more than two years ago.There’s no real structure, especially in attack, and we aren’t generating the quick ball needed for guys like Nikki Walker and Max Evans. Ireland created lots of opportunities against us through dummy runners or the back three linking from deep; we don’t seem to have that ability, or indeed an understanding of individual roles.Injured centre Graeme Morrison is becoming a better player just by not playing. Sean Lamont was moved to 12 to give us go-forward but he’s never going to offload because he doesn’t have the skill set needed in a tight midfield. The first try we conceded to Ireland, when Lamont and Nick De Luca went for the same player, was a shocker. We don’t know what our best midfield pairing is but history shows that the best partnerships – Carling and Guscott, O’Driscoll and D’Arcy, Scott Hastings and Lineen – are given time to gel. So let’s choose two guys and start them against England and Italy. I’d also start Scott Lawson because Ross Ford isn’t on top of his game.To have a chance of beating England we’ll have to be virtually error-free. England have a powerful pack, dynamic back row and a potent back three in which Chris Ashton runs great gamble lines. You can’t mark him because his best work, his tracking, is done without the ball. If I scored tries like he does I’d be swallow-diving too! Scotland’s strength is the lineout and we must restore Parks at ten and play behind England, putting pressure on their throwers. Richie Gray has been a revelation – he’s physical, turns over ball, carries ball, cover-tackles, spoils opposition lineout ball. He’s been our best player of the tournament.Scotland haven’t won at Twickenham since 1983.I drew one and lost four Tests there, though in one we led 6-3 when I went off with a broken arm, so that’s a moral victory! But if we can cut the errors and get our lineout right then don’t write us off.This article appeared in the April 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Do you want to buy the issue of Rugby World in which this article appeared?

Hendre Fourie becomes a Shark

first_img“Hendre has been chased and courted by several Premiership clubs but we are very pleased he has chosen Sale Sharks. We would like to thank Leeds Carnegie for their help in the transfer of Hendre. He is a great addition to our squad, a player whose work ethic is second to none. Hendre is a tough individual and will fit perfectly into our plans and what we are trying to achieve at the Sharks.”Hendre Fourie Age 31Height 1.83m  (6ft)Weight 108kg (17st)Caps 6 FourieSale Sharks today announced the signing of England International Hendre Fourie from Leeds Carnegie on a two year deal.  He will join for an undisclosed fee from Sale to Leeds.Fourie’s rise in the English game has been remarkable in that he arrived in the country in 2005 as a part time National League player and within five years he was an England International.Hendre played rugby in his native South Africa for Shimlas, Maties, University of Free State and The Vodacom Cheetahs before joining Rotherham Titans. He impressed in games against Leeds and signed for the Headingley based club in 2007. Since then he established himself as a top class player and also caught the attention of the England selectors who gave him a Saxons debut against Italy. He toured with England to Australia last summer and made his England debut last November against New Zealand as a replacement for Lewis Moody. He has so far gained six caps.

Munster stand up for their Man

first_imgFor more information, see www.mycharity.ie/event/munster_rugby_charity_cycleThis article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK All the O’s – O’Gara, O’Callaghan and O’ConnellIf you’re looking for a change of pace this month, take a leaf out of Donncha O’Callaghan’s book. He’s urging rugby fans in Ireland and the UK to get on their bikes in support of Paul Darbyshire.Originally from Wigan, Darbyshire is Munster’s head of strength and conditioning, having arrived at the province in 2007 from rugby league side Warrington Wolves, and was sadly diagnosed with motor neurone disease in September. O’Callaghan, joined by the rest of the Munster squad and a horde of red-shirted fans, will take part in a cycle ride, which covers 300 miles from 19-23 June and goes from Musgrave Park to Colwyn Bay via Dublin, then on to Warrington. Anyone can take part, whether cycling or just dropping in for the craic, and funds raised will go to the Darbyshire family and research into the illness.The news came as a shock to Munster, not least because of the mentality Darbyshire has instilled the squad. “The initial shock was frightening for us because Darbs is like superman,” says O’Callaghan. “He changed the mindset in how we trained and made us believe that our bodies could do anything. He’s still coming to our matches, which is typical of him.”O’Callaghan says Darbyshire and his family are an integral part of Munster. “If the lads are ever going out for a meal Darbs will always come with us. He’s the real heartbeat of the place. He’s a massive part ofour squad and so are his family, and that will always be the case.”The cycle ride will be a tough haul, just like Darbyshire’s training routines, but rugby stars from all the provinces, hurlers, footballers and rugby league players are all looking forward to having a great time. “Even (John) Hayes, who’d probably break a bike if he sat on it, will be around squirting us with water bottles and his wife will be doing physio,” O’Callaghan says. “The craic will be hugely important. It’s the way Darbs would have done it.” Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here.

Cycling from London to Auckland

first_img Tom Hudson and Jodie Burton reached New Zealand in time to experience all the World Cup had to offerTwo rugby nuts spent 18 months cycling to the World Cup. Here’s their story…We had plans to set up home in Australia and we wanted to see the world by bike, so we decided to cycle from the UK to New Zealand, raise money for charity and explore rugby across the world into the bargain.When we set off in May 2010 we had just one contact, in the Czech Republic. But the rugby family opened up to us and by the time we got to New Zealand we’d had loads of people getting in touch to say we could stay with them. It’s amazing how big grass-roots rugby is across the world. We’ve stayed with guys who are part of rugby projects all across Europe and Asia.Final signature on the scroll – Richie McCawWe arrived in New Zealand a week before the World Cup, flying in from Australia, then set off to cycle to Eden Park from Dunedin. The trip started in the rain and took in lots of hills so it took a big effort to keep going after so many months on the bikes. On the way we met Richie McCaw in Christchurch and the Russian team in Blenheim. We went up to Wellington to see Australia v USA and at Palmerston North we presented the Museum of Rugby with our scroll, which has been signed by rugby people from all over the world. That’s going to stay there for ten years, which is amazing.We made it to Eden Park the day before the quarter-finals and a Kiwi gave us tickets to two games. There was a bit of disappointment when England were knocked out, but it didn’t detract from the tournament for us. And that’s the sign of a good World Cup. We watched 12 countries play and we feel like we absorbed what the whole World Cup is about.People talk about cutting the number of World Cup sides, but it’s imperative that we don’t lose the colour of the pool stages. The moment you start thinking about how much money you can make from a World Cup, you lose interest in the World Cup itself. We want to make 50 million more people fall in love with the sport on the back of the World Cup.The highlight of our journey was meeting New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at Ponsonby RFC, where they had put up a display of our trip. Now that we’ve made so many contacts around the world, we want to build a global network, buddy up clubs so they can share their expertise. We want to work on developing rugby from the bottom up rather than the top down and anyone interested should contact us via cyclingtotherugbyworldcup.com.It’s been a great journey and we’ve met some amazing people. But we’re hoping this is just the beginning. This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Rachael Burford ready to win Women’s World Cup

first_imgBustling Burford: Rachael Burford enjoys being in the heart of the action, directing play LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The walkway that meanders around Twickenham Stadium is lined with a series of plaques. Carrying a name underneath a single red rose, they commemorate figures that have left their mark on English rugby.Outside the towering North Stand lies one such tile remembering Mick Burford, who represented Medway before spending over a decade as the Kent club’s treasurer and secretary. He may have died in January 2007 following a heart attack, but the former prop would be bursting with unbridled pride today.Selected in England Women’s 26-player squad for next month’s tournament in France, his daughter Rachael Burford is standing on the eve of her third World Cup. An unfussy inside centre, she oozes composure in both attack and defence. But while a calm, clinical edge sets her apart on the field, Burford has not forgotten the fundamental lessons ingrained by her father.“Dad was my rock,” she explains. “Whenever I played he’d be there, encouraging and making sure I enjoyed myself above anything. That’s what has kept me in the sport from the age of six.“I remember when I was 13 I got invited to an England training session all the way up at Leamington RFC. The whole way there I thought it was a joke that I’d been invited. He just gently convinced me otherwise.“We’re a close family and when he passed away it was a huge loss for all of us, but I knew he wouldn’t have wanted me to mope around. When I was hurting and missing him dearly, rugby kept me going because that was what I shared with him.”A teenage Burford made an England debut at the 2006 World Cup in Canada. Mick and mum Renata huddled in front of a grainy internet feed to watch her two games. Though Rachael never got to play an international with her father on the sidelines, progress has continued apace.Exactly 50 further appearances over the ensuing seven years mean Burford is one of 13 half-centurions in head coach Gary Street’s England party – one that has prepared for this coming mission over an unprecedented, exacting 11-week camp in Guildford.Sevens star: Burford in action against Australia on the sevens world seriesStuart Lancaster has addressed the group on the subject of team culture. Strength and conditioning coach Stuart Pickering is guiding a punishing schedule too. On the day I speak to Burford, she is two training sessions down with “rugby under fatigue” to go later – essentially a test of basic skills under a tsunami of lactic acid.Having lost the last three finals to New Zealand, most recently a soul-shattering 13-10 reverse in 2010, the group is united and driven by the pain of disappointment. Crucially though, they refused to be defined by it.Katherine Grainger, who racked up three consecutive Olympic silvers before rowing to glorious, cathartic gold at London 2012, has been another visitor to Surrey Sports Park. Burford wasn’t alone in feeling inspired, reinforcing Street’s assertion that “no team will want the World Cup more”.“Katherine’s story is so similar to ours,” she says. “It would have been easy for her to think ‘I know how this goes, I get silver again.’“Actually, it was all about the gold. She didn’t let go of her dream and dealt with her demons. The messages she gave us hit home – one step at a time, focus on the processes rather than the outcome. TAGS: Highlight center_img England Women have never been better equipped to conquer the world. Burford possesses precisely the right kind of personality to set standards and ensure their lofty goal is met.Read our extensive Women’s World Cup preview in the August edition of Rugby World – out now! You can find out where to buy your copy here. Download the digital edition here. “It’s easy to get caught up in our rivalry with New Zealand, but we are only concentrating on Samoa in the first pool game.”England face Spain and Canada in Marcoussis after their opener against the Pacific Islanders on August 1. With Ireland and hosts France looking strong, the competition is far from a two-horse race. Not that Burford needs reminding.“It’s a case of staying in the moment, taking it all in,” adds the 27 year-old. “We’re only there for 17 days and a maximum of five games. Then it’s all over. We want to bring the World Cup home – that’s our goal.”For such a pivotal member of the England set-up, voted RPA Player of the Year for 2013 by her peers, Burford is fairly understated.There is a tenacious streak, of course – she spends spare time at Medway CrossFit and has battled back from knee cartilage damage sustained on sevens duty just this April. However, her game is characterised by accurate execution.Take England’s 35-3 win over Wales in March. Emily Scarratt bagged a brace of tries on the way to a 17-point performance that wowed the Twickenham Stoop. Burford was the real star, though. Without her decision-making and distribution amid some heavy midfield traffic, the scoreline would have been far tighter.The best sides often include one centre who shuns the limelight to knuckle down on the nuts and bolts of what makes their backline tick – hitting an unselfish running-line to straighten up an attack, nailing their two-on-ones, organising a defensive drift. Burford’s self-effacing opinion on her role in Street’s team sends her straight into that mould.“You can’t be predictable, but a big part of my game is doing the basics as best as I can. Sometimes it doesn’t need much to put people into space.“I’m not a line-breaker that can run 70 metres and score a try. Our back three and the likes of Emily Scarratt can do that. It’s about finding out what you can do to help the team and understanding each other.“We’re getting that right and that’s what will help us out in France.”last_img read more

Charles Piutau: “I love razzling out there”

first_img At his new home: Piutau at Ashton Gate (pic by Sam Riley) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS He returns to the Gallagher Premiership with a hefty price tag, but Charles Piutau just wants to entertain at Bristol Bears. This first appeared in the September 2018 issue of Rugby World. Having won a Junior World Cup as he scored freely for the Baby Blacks, then won a World Sevens Series with Tietjens, it seemed to make sense that Piutau would become an All Black. But having become a regular winger for New Zealand after an initial period shuffling around the back-line, Piutau made his decision to move abroad. Plenty of Kiwis could not fathom why he would make such a call at just 23.At the end: Facing Samoa in 2015Layers of thought present themselves as he says: “My faith has always been a big thing, growing up as a Pacific Island kid. My parents always took us to church and taught us these values and to have a relationship with God. So I’ve made a lot of my rugby decisions being aware of that but also of my family, as well as the people around me.“Being an All Black I was like, ‘Man, this is awesome!’ You grow up wanting to put on that jersey. Then I was playing for a few seasons and the World Cup was coming. I was thinking about playing in that and wanted nothing else.“But rugby is a short career and these factors start coming in. You start looking at your family, and where they have come from as well. My parents migrated from Tonga to New Zealand to give us all a better opportunity, and then it comes down to me and part of it is wanting to maximise my career.“I was thinking about all of these factors. As the opportunity became more and more of a genuine option, I thought I may as well give it a crack.“I’ve enjoyed it and I don’t regret anything. There’s a bit of being an adult about it too. Growing up I was quite ‘young’ and I wanted to find my own feet. Being the youngest of ten I’ve always been protected and looked after.“And for my family, it was a big decision. ‘Oh wow, he’s looking to go to the other side of the world.’ That was the hardest thing. We can talk about how tough it was to not play for the All Blacks, but leaving the family I’ve grown up with, lived with all my life – it was all I knew – to go away, that was a big step. I feel like I’ve been able to grow up.”Previous incarnation: Piutau during his stint at WaspsSo many of us strive to feel like that for a lot of our adult lives. We won’t all need separation to do it, sure. But on the other hand, as Piutau gets familiar with his new Bristolian surroundings, he now has every chance to grow further.It may help that Piutau’s older brother Siale is also at the club, but the pair playing for the same side has never happened purely by design. Though there is another side Charles would like to play for alongside his brother.There has been talk in recent months about the former All Black finding a way of switching allegiance to represent Tonga. A complicated undertaking that would involve playing in Olympic qualifier events with Tonga Sevens – something hard to do with the team not a core side on the World Series. It looks very unlikely to happen before we get to the 2019 World Cup. But time is on his side and if he does it, we believe, it will prove an influential move.Related: Meet Tonga hooker Paula Ngauamo“If it ever comes then I’d be more than happy to represent Tonga,” Piutau tells us. “It’s my heritage, my culture.“But with international rugby you work together with your club and your international team. We need to think about what’s best for everyone. In the perfect world, if everyone is happy then we will go through all that.Settling in: Piutau is now in the West Country“Playing for the family is one thing. The other thing is playing in a World Cup; I haven’t done it. There is part of me that still wants to taste that level of rugby. I definitely have a desire to pull on that red jersey and represent Tonga, more so if I do it alongside my brother, but if not together I’d still want to play.“My parents would definitely be very emotional, proud and excited if that phone call ever came to tell them I’m in.”Right now, though, Piutau’s full focus is on the ‘transition’ needed to become a prosperous Bear. If there’s a Lam-led revolution afoot, the league newbies have a hot-stepper ready to roll. But what should the club’s approach be now: go right for Lam’s Champions Cup place target or survive season one?“You’ve got to have a goal of winning,” Piutau insists. “You can’t think in survival mode. If I feel like that it’s almost like settling. Shoot for the stars and if you fall, hopefully it’s not to the bottom and you still survive!“Like Pat has said, you have that drive and that boldness – you back yourself to be amongst the best in the Prem and in Europe.”center_img This article originally appeared in the September 2018 issue of Rugby World. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Mid-answer, Charles Piutau’s head is wobbling as he jerks in his chair, trying to explain how he developed his fast feet.“I have always seen footwork as a strength of mine, trying to beat defenders and get away from them,” says the Bristol Bears’ headliner new signing, the versatile back with 17 All Black caps to his name. “Hopefully I’ll create something out of nothing. I work on it. Growing up it was a thing where you just try to step someone…”And here the wobbling goes into overdrive. Hold up, hold up, we need you to explain what you mean here.“Well… you play touch rugby a lot and you’ll try the jump-step, you’ll pop up and the body loosens up a bit at the leg and then it wiggles and you step…”He goes through the full gamut of actions, without ever leaving his seat. Finally he concedes: “It’s more a backyard footy thing, right, messing around with mates in general or at the park. As a kid growing up you just try it out, whereas now as a professional you work on your agility and speed, in the gym… but you want it to come naturally. It’s exactly like that messing around when you get on well with team-mates.”Entertainment will be high on the agenda of many neutrals as the former Wasp returns to the Premiership. It was a shock to many when Piutau eschewed All Blacks life in 2015 to sign a contract with Ulster, at just 23. He was released well ahead of his big 2016 move to Northern Ireland and filled in the interim with Wasps, electrifying the top English league during his short stint.Now 26, he left Ulster for Bristol at a time of great intrigue. Bankrolled by mega-wealthy Steve Lansdown, the side recently (and for some, controversially) rebranded to become the Bears. In a column for Rugby World, respected head coach Pat Lam also explained that the newly-promoted club want to become synonymous with the sharp end of Champions Cup rugby.Standing up: Piutau playing for Ulster in the Champions CupAmidst all of this, much chat about Piutau’s big move has been about the war chest used to acquire his services – many believe him to be the best-paid player in England, which is one of the reasons he finds himself on our list.With great pay packets comes great responsibility, you would imagine.Piutau gives his view. “You can get to a place where you think, ‘Man, I have to play up to whatever amount I’m being paid, you have to live up to that.’“But I know that if I try to train or play up to that place, I am not going to perform well. That’s the wrong mindset.“I just want to do everything I can to perform for my team-mates and my club. Through that way of thinking, everything else will look after itself.”So what if someone says to you, ‘Hey, wait a second, you’re the highest-paid player in England, aren’t you?’“I’ll just say ‘That’s that’. I love what I do and I want to be the best I can. I’ll go and do what I enjoy the most and if that’s razzling, I love doing that out there, getting the ball in my hands. Why not?”Related: Beauden Barrett on his drive to improve That’s some one-job-at-a-time thinking at first but then there’s a smile in the eyes as the caveat is added on – the promise of flashing feet to come. It’s also a confident response to a question that is likely to recur at the start of Piutau’s stay in the West Country.Confidence is something the full-back has had to dig for. See, he’s worked with coach Lam before, with the veteran giving the kid his first two games in Super Rugby before Lam was out the door at Auckland Blues.Despite the almost accursed recent history of the Blues, the Auckland area – where Piutau, the youngest of ten children, was born – has produced many incredible athletes. Young Charles struggled to make his mark at first. He missed a few age-grade sides, before making the national U18s. Then he struggled to hold down a regular place in the ITM Cup. It took time away with New Zealand Sevens to give him a jolt of belief, with the fabled Sir Gordon Tietjens telling him to back himself whenever he got the ball in his hands.Partners in crime: Piutau and Bears team-mate Steven Luatua with the Bledisloe CupBy the time Lam called for the cavalry at the end of his last Super Rugby season, Piutau was buzzing. He felt instantly comfortable at the level and was Man of the Match first out. With two outings at the end of a pig of a Blues season, Piutau laughs: “I was unbeaten!”It’s hard to imagine that a player with such frightening attacking talents could ever be out of coaches’ minds. Confidence is a tricky thing to pin down though.“A bit is being a Pacific Islander, you can be timid or shy,” says Piutau, the son of Tongan immigrants. “And so it’s about being comfortable with my own ability and expressing myself, feeling like I could do that in any environment. For me it was a two- to three-year period where I wasn’t doing that. Then when I got a taste in the sevens and got confidence to back myself, I looked back and thought, ‘Man, I’m wasting time!’ I was holding myself back, not expressing myself.”last_img read more

Canon Dan Webster[Episcopal News Service] Years ago, the Rev. Bob Castle came to the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin to give a lecture.  He was not larger than life, nor was he particularly compelling.To prepare, we had watched what to me was an inspiring documentary about him, “Cousin Bobby,” produced by his cousin Jonathan Demme, who had directed “Silence of the Lambs.” Even so, Castle himself was pretty unassuming.When I heard about his recent death, I recalled Castle’s impact on Garret Keizer, author of A Dresser of Sycamore Trees, The Finding of a Ministry, a book I often loan to folks who think they may want to enter the priesthood.Castle picked Keizer, a parishioner and Vermont high school teacher, to take on more ministry in their small Episcopal congregation, asking him to lead adult catechism and preach.  Keizer would later became a lay vicar and eventually a “Canon 9” priest, a locally-trained person ordained to serve a particular parish or ministry. Keizer’s book is as much an homage to his mentor as it is a memoir.“By watching how Castle tempered insight with tolerance, I began to believe that God’s ability to see through the superficial exterior of a man or woman is not necessarily the same as God’s disapproval of that exterior, however trite or quirky it appears,” he wrote.Castle’s urban ministry in New Jersey and New York City is well-chronicled by Keizer who describes the marching with Martin Luther King, Jr., opposition to the Vietnam War, protesting the buildup of nuclear weapons in the 1980s, and dumping uncollected garbage in Harlem in front of City Hall in lower Manhattan.  Castle was arrested so many times it was routine for Castle’s kids to ask, “How much is the bail, Mom?”Demme’s documentary captured Castle talking about how the Harlem community kept complaining about potholes in the streets with no result. When news media arrived to cover a street protest Castle called in, they found him with a table set in a pothole. The news conference began with Holy Eucharist. This was not the first time he’d done something like this.“He had invited street gang to use the parish gymnasium,” Keizer recounted. “He had staged a summit between two warring gangs, beginning with Holy Communion.”I suspect there were infuriated Episcopalians in New York City when he protested a service outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine honoring Gen. Colin Powell and veterans of Desert Storm.During his talk in Austin, Castle said two things were missing from the seminary curriculum: having the experience of walking in the steps of the Master and community organizing.  He thought everyone called to follow Jesus should visit the Holy Land.  And, if memory serves, he was adamant about learning how to organize a parish community to do the work of the gospel.There had been a history of police cars from the local precinct parking on the sidewalk in front of his church, St. Mary’s in Harlem.  When repeated requests to move the cars were ignored, he covered the windshields of offending cars with a mixture of flour and water and wrote, “This Police Officer Disrespects Our Community.”“That is how I’ll go down in the annals of history,” Castle told Keizer.  “St. Patrick got the snakes out of Ireland, and I got the cars off the sidewalk on 126th Street.”Castle lived the courage of his gospel convictions.  He, like his church, opposed the death penalty.  He pushed his church to acknowledge the sin of racism.  And he lived to speak and passionately advocate for those who had no voice or no access to power.  Our church needs more leaders who are inspired to follow Bob Castle’s example.— The Rev. Canon Dan Webster is canon for evangelism and ministry development in the Diocese of Maryland.  He lives in Baltimore.last_img read more

In his video, McConnell speaks of meeting Christ in those who suffer. Recalling his own bout with illness years ago, the bishop dons a hospital gown and says, “In the end, underneath all our fancy clothes, our masks, our daily situations, we all look like this. We are all waiting for healing.”The Pittsburgh diocese has several ties to the movie. The producers chose St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Mt. Lebanon to film scenes where the main characters initially meet in a support group and where they return later in the film. A cast member in that support group is Alexander Murph, a teenage cancer patient and member of St. Thomas Memorial Church, Oakmont. His father and St. Thomas rector, the Rev. Jeffrey Murph, also appears as an unidentified extra. Murph told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that church-centered care for those who suffer rang true in his own family’s situation, “because the church really did support us. I don’t know how people manage without that kind of support.”Bishop McConnell’s video is posted on the diocesan website and on YouTube.http://youtu.be/j2ZEfXXUkrk Rector Tampa, FL Submit a Press Release Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Washington, DClast_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Course Director Jerusalem, Israel March 3, 2015 at 8:31 pm What arrogance to say that being at Lambeth is to be on God’s time. Anglican Communion, Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Justin Groth says: March 8, 2015 at 3:44 pm I think you might have misunderstood what is meant by “God’s time,” my friend. I think the idea is that by having a rule of life centered on prayer, one is living according to God’s time as opposed to one’s own. That this new community centered on prayer happens to be at Lambeth Palace is relevant insofar as this represents Archbishop Justin’s commitment to the renewal of the Anglican Communion through the nurturing of intentional and prayerful Christian communities.Peace brother,JCG Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector Columbus, GA Press Release Service [Lambeth Palace press release] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has opened the application process for young Christians around the world to spend “a year in God’s time” at Lambeth Palace in London.Christians aged 20-35 have the opportunity to spend a year living together as a community inspired by the ancient monastic traditions of St. Benedict, St. Francis and St. Ignatius. They will live according to a shared Rule of Life and follow a pattern of silence, prayer, worship, study and service to the poor.The Community of St. Anselm will initially consist of 16 people living at Lambeth Palace full-time, and up to 40 people, who live and work in London, joining part-time.Young Anglicans from around the Communion are invited to apply to join the community – with both male and female applicants welcome.Welby, who is the abbot of the new community, said: “I expect this venture to have radical impact – not just for the individuals who participate but for life at Lambeth Palace, across the Church and in the world we seek to serve. This is what we expect in following Jesus. I urge young people to step up: here is an open invitation to be transformed and to transform.”The prior of the community, the Rev. Anders Litzell, said: “There will be sacrifices required. People will need to leave things behind.”He added: “This is a question of how we can model a life of prayer and deep commitment shaped in the likeness of Christ for people who aren’t going to be monks and nuns, but who want to embody the monastic traditions, who want to draw from those deep wells and live a lifestyle influenced by that spirituality.”To find out more and apply, visit: http://stanselm.org.uk/French: http://stanselm.org.uk/about/vous-voulez-passer-une-annee-a-prier-au-palais-de-lambeth/Spanish: http://stanselm.org.uk/quieres-pasar-un-ano-rezando-en-el-palacio-de-lambeth/Portuguese: http://stanselm.org.uk/quer-passar-um-ano-orando-no-palacio-de-lambeth/ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Bath, NC Comments are closed.
