Photo: Brotherhood of St. AndrewHe’s revamped and re-invigorated this 138-year-old men’s ministry. Membership is up.But he also pointed out one massive problem – the transition from a 19th-century dues-paying mentality to a 21st-century ministry pledge offering given out of thanksgiving.“The idea that we can run this entire operation with volunteers left the station 20 years ago,” Butcher said.In addition to the hundreds of local ministries undertaken by the brotherhood’s 5,162 members in 358 chapters throughout the U.S., the national brotherhood now supports and helps conduct seven ministries: discipleship and mentoring, Boy Scouts and youth, restorative justice, veterans affairs, racial reconciliation, human trafficking and recovery.The brotherhood moved its headquarters from Ambridge, Pennsylvania, to Louisville, Kentucky.In January 2017, the executive board hired Tom Welch to be the brotherhood’s first executive director in more than 12 years.Here is a report on the day-by-day activities of the Brotherhood Triennial at the Embassy Suites Arboretum in Austin, which concluded July 7:Thursday, July 5Presiding Bishop Michael Curry delivered the welcoming address, arriving from his duties at the Episcopal Church General Convention 10 miles away.Curry praised the brotherhood’s now-seven national ministries. “Think about what this says about our commitment to our communities,” he said.After a report on General Convention business, Curry ended by proclaiming loudly, “God bless the brotherhood.”Just prior to the presiding bishop’s talk, Butcher offered his address. It contained a detailed look at the background and reasons for the organization’s many upgrades.Following Butcher’s address, Senior Vice President Jack Hanstein led the group in a formal vote on various changes to the organization’s constitution and bylaws. The brothers approved the changes unanimously.Friday, July 6The triennial’s second day began with a homily by 91-year-old the Rev. Sid Gervais of Round Rock, Texas. He emphasized that there “is only one church. None of us has ever been baptized an Episcopalian. Or a Methodist.”“The church makes mistakes when it begins to think of itself by denominations,” Gervais said. “There is no such thing as a ‘cradle Episcopalian.’“There is a job before us and we all know what it is.”Sticking to financial issues, the National Council next tackled the Sept. 2018-Dec. 2019 budget.The 16-month 2018-2019 budget of $341,139.47 contains expense and travel allowances for elected officers, province presidents, missional theme vice presidents and the Anglican Liaison, as well as stipends for regional workshop speakers.It provides assistance for regional workshops. Fourteen regional workshops took place in the last 18 months, with an aggregate attendance for these sessions and other national council meetings totaling 638 brothers participating.“Forward Day by Day” editor talks evangelismAfter workshops on evangelism, scouting and human trafficking, the brothers were introduced to Forward Movement Executive Director the Rev. Scott Gunn, who talked about his seven years with the Episcopal Church ministry that publishes “Forward Day by Day” and other material. Gunn launched into a spirited discussion about evangelism.“Once I got a great car wash for $12 at a new place in town,” Gunn told the 92 brothers attending the triennial. “I told everybody I knew about this great new car wash. I bet I told 100 people. But then I thought, ‘Why don’t I tell that many people about my faith, which is the most important thing in my life?’“It was the beginning of a personal ministry of evangelism.”He noted that the Episcopal Church is losing one percent of its membership every year – a figure Gunn said could easily be reversed.“They used to say typical Episcopalians invite someone to church every 40 years,” Gunn said. “That was probably coined during the era of the Greatest Generation. Back in their day, you didn’t have to invite people to church – they just came. Not only to church but to the Rotary Club, the PTA and other community organizations.“It was an entirely different story for their children, the boomer generation, the largest in U.S. history. The main thrust of the boomers was simply to ‘do good.’ It didn’t matter why or for whom.“For many but not all boomers, the church was just as suspect as the government and corporate America,” Gunn said.“Their children were labeled Generation X. After seeing their parents and grandparents struggle with three wars, a depression, assassinations and civil unrest, Generation Xers responded by partying. Gen Xers came of age in the 1980s, a decade of excess, cocaine and ‘greed is good.’ The church? What’s that?“And their children rebelled by becoming a curious, studious bunch. They are interested in a lot of things, including spirituality. This is the millennial generation so coveted by advertisers and, yes, the church. They don’t reject society like their grandparents and parents. They will visit your church if invited, and they might come all on their own.”Then he offered a practical solution to stop the decline.“If a significant number of Episcopalians invited two people per year to church, this decline could turn into a great revival of the Episcopal Church,” Gunn said.“Our liturgy, music and the fact that we kneel are among the unique things that set us apart,” he said. “Every time someone kneels, they are searching for Jesus.”Saturday, July 7The Rev. Matt Marino from the Episcopal Church of St. John the Divine in Houston conducted a rousing workshop on discipleship and mentoring.He started with some statistics:* 85 percent of all U.S. teenagers definitely believe in God.* 72 percent of the Episcopal Church teenagers definitely believe in God.* 51 percent of all U.S. teenagers feel very strongly that they are close to God.* 36 percent of Episcopal Church teenagers feel very strongly that they are close to God.* 51 percent of all U.S. teenagers say faith is very or extremely important in their daily life.* 40 percent of Episcopal Church teenagers say faith is very or extremely important in their daily life.* 56 percent of all U.S. teenagers have committed to live a life for God.* 32 percent of Episcopal Church teenagers have committed to live a life for God.“Now you can see the importance of discipleship,” Marino said. “The youth of today have been advertised to and have seen more ads than any generation in history. They have great BS detectors.”Marino says he’s noticed denominations often spend $150,000 on a college chaplain only to find their college ministries work better when the students themselves manage things.To gain an understanding of how millennials think and how to minister to them, Marino recommends Googling “Simon Sinek” to find videos, talks and books by this British-American author of “Start with Why” and three other books.– Jim Goodson is editor of the St. Andrew’s Cross.

People’s Postcode Lottery part of world’s largest private charity donor of 2016

first_img Novamedia, which includes People’s Postcode Lottery, has been named the world’s top private charity donor in City A.M.’s fifth annual ranking.As well as Novamedia being the biggest private charity donor, it is third on the overall City A.M. 2016 Charity Index, behind the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Wellcome Trust.The index compares the total amount that private donors raised for charity throughout the year. At the top of the list, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded £3.6bn, the Wellcome Trust awarded £606m and £446m came from Novamedia’s Postcode Lotteries.Prof. Theo Schuyt, (VU University Amsterdam, European Research Network on Philanthropy), who determines the rankings, said:“Many of the other organisations in the list are endowed foundations; their grants originate from legacies and donations from corporations or banks. However, People’s Postcode Lottery in Great Britain and the Novamedia family in The Netherlands, Sweden and Germany, generates its grants from actively fundraising money by operating charity lotteries.”The People’s Postcode Lottery recently announced two awards. WaterAid has received £2.5m to support its water and sanitation projects across Sub-Saharan Africa, while £250,000 went to Contact the Elderly, which organises free, monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people aged 75 or over who live alone.Players of People’s Postcode Lottery has supported WaterAid since 2013, and £1.3 million worth of funding has already gone to the charity.On receiving the award, Barbara Frost, chief executive of WaterAid, said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 People’s Postcode Lottery part of world’s largest private charity donor of 2016 Melanie May | 22 December 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Social networks and TV signals down after close of polls in Malawi

first_img News MalawiAfrica Media independence Internet Letter to President Mutharika about his threats to journalists News to go further Crédit : PATRICK MEINHARDT / AFP Follow the news on Malawi Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores the fact that, on the evening of 21 May, shortly after the close of polls in Malawi’s presidential, parliamentary and local council elections, the broadcast signals of two TV channels were interrupted and the social network platforms Facebook and WhatsApp became inaccessible October 10, 2012 Find out more These interruptions hampered the flow of information about the polling and vote-count at a crucial moment. The voting itself passed off without any major incident but the outcome of the presidential race has yet to be announced and is still in the balance.The TV channels whose signals were interrupted were Times Television and Zodiak Broadcasting, both of which are regarded as sympathetic to the opposition. The latter’s transmission cables were deliberately vandalized, preventing it from broadcasting result estimates after the close of polls, the owner said.RSF has learned that both social network access and the TV channel broadcast signals were restored during the course of the night, after the two channels protested to electoral commission president Jane Ansah.“Blocking social networks and preventing media from broadcasting while an election is under way constitutes a grave obstruction to the flow of information and undermines the election’s credibility and transparency,” RSF said.President Peter Mutharika is seeking another term but has had to face a strong challenge from his vice-president, Saulos Chilima, and from Lazarus Chakwera, the leader of the Malawi Congress Party, the country’s main opposition party.The government issued a brief statement on 22 May denying that it intended to shut down Internet services and calling on Internet Service Providers to “ensure that their services are running efficiently.”Malawi is ranked 68th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
