Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.[Episcopal News Service] Una gardenia blanca en el ojal y un anillo de diamante en el meñique de Steve Price fueron tributos agridulces en medio del multitudinario regocijo de la “Celebración de la igualdad” en la pro catedral de San Juan [St. John’s Pro-Cathedral] el 27 de junio en Los Ángeles.De Los Ángeles a Nueva York, los feligreses se reunieron a lo largo y ancho de la Iglesia para celebrar, de manera muy pública y también muy personal, después que el Tribunal Supremo de EE.UU. derogara la Ley en Defensa del Matrimonio (DOMA por su sigla en inglés) y declarara inconstitucional la prohibición del matrimonio de parejas homosexuales en California (Proposición 8).Los fallos del tribunal extendieron muchos beneficios federales, que anteriormente les habían sido negados, a parejas del mismo sexo casadas en los estados de EE.UU. que permiten tales uniones y allanaron el camino para que se reanuden los matrimonios de homosexuales en California.“He estado librando esta batalla durante 30 años”, dijo Price, cofundador de la naciente Comunidad Episcopal del Espíritu Santo en Silver Lake, California.Al tiempo de celebrar el poder “experimentar el amor de Dios en este momento los unos con los otros”, Price dijo que su gardenia era un tributo a “los espíritus de todas las personas que no pudieron llegar a la meta”. El diamante era una herencia familiar que él convirtió en un anillo del meñique. Habría sido un anillo de boda, pero su compañero “murió de SIDA, no está aquí para la ocasión”.Otras personas en la celebración llevaban camisetas del orgullo homosexual con la divisa que nos resulta tan familiar: “la Iglesia Episcopal te da la bienvenida”.Mary Glasspool, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, suscitó exuberantes vítores y un prolongado y estruendoso aplauso —de parte de unos doscientos feligreses que asistían al oficio en Los Ángeles el 27 de junio— tan sólo con sus palabras iniciales: “Han ocurrido muchísimas cosas esta última semana”.“Es interesante advertir cuántas cosas parecen ocurrir a finales de junio”, añadió Glasspool, que en 2009 se convirtió en la primera sacerdote abiertamente homosexual y con pareja en ser electa obispa en la Iglesia Episcopal.Por ejemplo, dijo ella, el 28 de junio es el 44º. aniversario del comienzo de los disturbios de Stonewall, “esa serie de eventos que, para muchas personas, marcó el comienzo del movimiento por los derechos de los homosexuales en este país”.Y “el 24 de junio fue el 40º. aniversario del incendio deliberado de UpStairs Lounge en Nueva Orleáns, donde murieron 32 personas y que suscitó tan poca atención en su momento e incluso una vergonzosa falta de respuesta de cualquiera que ostentara alguna autoridad, incluidos los líderes de las instituciones religiosas”, añadió.Ella le dijo a la jubilosa asamblea que había elegido una de las lecciones de la noche (Romanos 8:35-39) “porque fue el único pasaje de la Escritura que me mantuvo en la Iglesia cuando yo le buscaba solución a mi propia sexualidad y creía que tal vez Dios me odiaba por ser lesbiana”.Pero añadió que, de tener nuevamente la oportunidad, podría haber elegido la parábola de los obreros de la viña (Mateo 20:1-16) porque “dice algo respecto a la irresistible gracia de Dios dada a todo el que quiere recibirla, y a nuestra humana y muchas veces destructiva dificultad en celebrar los dones que otro recibe, en celebrar nuestra diversidad”.Ella exhortó a los presentes a pasar de “la igualdad a la solidaridad”, a aprender a regocijarse genuinamente con los dones que otros reciben. “¿Cómo podemos trabajar juntos para promover el reino de Dios?”.En muchos lugares de Estados Unidos también se estaba festejando la Semana del Orgullo Homosexual. Muchas celebraciones de la semana se fusionaron con las que provocaron los fallos del Tribunal Supremo.El obispo J. Jon Bruno, de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, asistido por la diácona Margaret McCauley y la arcediana Joanne Leslie, preside la eucaristía el 27 de junio flanqueado por dos parejas de homosexuales en un oficio en la pro catedral de San Juan “para celebrar la igualdad”. Foto de Janet Kawamoto.En la ciudad de Nueva York, más de 100 personas comenzaron el día en la Misa del Orgullo disco, en la iglesia de San Marcos en el Bowery [St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery]. El oficio comenzó la interpretación de “Sobre el arco iris” [Over the Rainbow] por Earl Giaquinto, que iba ataviado con los colores del arcoíris [representativos del movimiento gay], y terminó con una danza debajo de una luz estroboscópica y reflectores de colores.Con música en vivo que sonaba a sus espaldas, la Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga para la vitalidad misional de la Diócesis de Long Island, celebró la eucaristía llevando puesta la casulla verde de Barbara Harris, la obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts, ya jubilada, y la primera mujer en ser ordenada al episcopado en la Comunión Anglicana.La segunda lectura del día fue un fragmento del falló del Tribunal Supremo que derogaba partes de la DOMA.“Tenemos muchísimo que celebrar hoy”, dijo en su sermón la Rda. Winnie Varghese, rectora de San Marcos. “Cuando el gobierno actúa a favor del pueblo, se percibe como una liberación”.Cuando Jesús afirmó su rostro para subir a Jerusalén, se dirigió hacia el centro del poder, lo mismo que hicieron los profetas, como Eliseo, para “proclamar lo que es justo en las ciudades del rey”, dijo ella. Varghese instó a los fieles a celebrar, pero también a continuar ese papel profético de luchar por los derechos de todas las personas.La Rda. Megan Sanders, rectora interina de la iglesia de San Andrés en Staten Island, reparte la comunión el 30 de junio en la eucaristía ofrecida por el capítulo de Integrity del área metropolitana de Nueva York a los manifestantes del Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual que no tenían oportunidad de asistir a la iglesia antes de participar en el evento a lo largo de la Quinta Avenida. Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.En la calle 38 de Manhattan, la Rda. Megan Sanders, rectora interina de la iglesia de San Andrés [Church of St. Andrew] en Staten Island, celebró una eucaristía programada por el capítulo de Integrity del área metropolitana de Nueva York para los manifestantes que no podían asistir a la iglesia antes de participar en el desfile a lo largo de la Quinta Avenida. Sanders, que se casó recientemente con Kristin Robyn, dijo que había “llorado en mi auto durante todo el trayecto camino al trabajo” cuando oyó la noticia del fallo del Tribunal Supremo. “Estaba muy emocionada, pero también insegura de lo que esto significa y de qué manera protegemos a las personas que no están casadas”.En el desfile, los episcopales de las diócesis de Nueva York y Newark portaban estandartes de la Iglesia delante de una carroza. Andrew M.L. Dietsche, el obispo de Nueva York, y su esposa Margaret saludaban desde la carroza a la multitud que se alineaba a lo largo de las calles y que los vitoreaban y bailaba al son de la música de la carroza. Una pareja de dos hombres, vestidos de blanco, se encontraban [entre los espectadores] debajo de un cartel que decía “Recién casados hoy”. Uno de los novios expresó las palabras “gracias” al paso de la carroza. En varios lugares, entre ellos la iglesia episcopal de la Ascensión [Episcopal Church of the Ascension], hubo voluntarios que les ofrecieron agua a los manifestantes.“Me siento feliz de estar aquí” dijo Dietsche, haciendo notar el apoyo de la diócesis a la igualdad matrimonial y a la plena inclusión de las personas LGBT [homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales] dentro de la Iglesia. “Creo que la gente percibe [la llegada de] un nuevo día en Estados Unidos, y sólo aspiramos a ser parte de él y celebrar”.Luego del desfile, Dietsche participó y habló brevemente en las Vísperas del Orgullo [Homosexual] en la iglesia de San Lucas del Campo [St. Luke in the Fields].“Estamos presenciando, como personas de fe, un cambio monumental en los corazones y mentes de la gente… a una velocidad pasmosa”, afirmó.La carroza de la Iglesia “es de enorme importancia”, agregó. “Dice que la Iglesia Episcopal te da la bienvenida y ése es un mensaje en extremo importante de la Iglesia a la comunidad LGBT, porque no siempre lo hizo. Tal vez estamos empezando a sanar algo del daño que la Iglesia cometió en el pasado”.La Rda. Barbara Lundblad, pastora luterana y profesora de homilética en el Seminario Teológico de la Unión, en Nueva York, predicó sobre el pasaje de la viuda y el juez injusto del evangelio de Lucas.“Tenemos que seguir importunando hasta que todas las personas del país tengan el derecho al voto y tengan el derecho a casarse y tengan el derecho a ser bien tratadas, incluso las personas solteras”, dijo. “Es posible celebrar y seguir importunando. Puede ser la única manera leal de celebrar en esta época de nuestra historia”.Llevando una estola que hizo para oficiar en su primera boda [de una pareja] homosexual, la Rda. Susan Copley, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo y de la misión de San Marcos en Tarrytown, Nueva York, participa en el Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual en Nueva York el 30 de junio. Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.Una celebración vespertina el 26 de junio en la Catedral Nacional de Washington fue “una noche jubilosa, llena de risas y lágrimas en la medida en que los que habían padecido de tan gran discriminación disfrutaban de un cambio de rumbo cultural y legal en nuestra marcha compartida hacia la justicia”, dijo el Muy Rdo. Gary Hall, deán de la catedral, en un sermón el 30 de junio.Las campanas de la catedral repicaron al mediodía “como señal de unidad con la comunidad LGBT”, según un comunicado de prensa de la catedral. Centenares de personas se reunieron en la catedral para celebrar los fallos del Tribunal Supremo.Más de cien personas asistieron a un foro de “elementos esenciales” en la catedral de Santa Margarita [St. Margaret’s Church] en Palm Desert, California, en la Diócesis de San Diego, según el Rdo. Lane Hensley, rector de la misma.Hensley, quien dijo que tiene programado oficiar en la boda de una pareja del mismo sexo en septiembre, explicó que el foro tenía por objeto comenzar un diálogo respecto a la viabilidad de vivir conforme a los fallos del tribunal.El 30 de junio, el obispo Mark Holmerud, del Sínodo de la Sierra del Pacífico de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, predicó en una eucaristía al aire libre del Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual, justo antes de su 43ra. celebración anual. El principal oficiante de esta eucaristía fue el obispo Marc Andrus, de la Diócesis Episcopal de California.El día de los fallos del Tribunal Supremo, Andrus escribió en su blog que estar en la ciudad de San Francisco desde temprano en la mañana a la espera del anuncio de Washington D.C. “bajo la mirada de la estatua y el espíritu del martirizado supervisor de San Francisco, Harvey Milk, como hizo notar David Chiu, el actual presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, era un modo de mostrar gratitud por la obra, el testimonio y el sacrificio de todos los presentes, de todos aquellos en muchos otros lugares, y de aquellos cuya labor echó las bases sobre las que ahora nos alzamos”.Andrus le dio las gracias al clero y a los laicos de la Diócesis de California “que han sido tan fieles en su lucha, durante décadas, por hacer realidad este momento” y a los obispos de las diócesis episcopales de California y a los obispos episcopales de 22 diócesis que se le unieron en la firma de dos testimonios de apoyo [amicus curiae] que se presentaron ante el tribunal en ambos casos.–La Rda.

Donorfy & Rapidata collaborate to give real-time view of donor giving activity AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Non-profit CRM provider Donorfy and regular giving specialist Rapidata have announced a systems integration that will provide a real-time view of donor giving activity for charities using Donorfy’s cloud-based CRM system with Rapidata’s Direct Debit Managed Service.The integration automates the exchange of data between the two, providing an up-to-date picture of activity at individual and campaign level to help mutual clients of Rapidata and Donorfy improve fundraising efficiencies and supporter services.It works by exchanging information in real time between Rapidata and Donorfy using their respective APIs. This enables charities to immediately see donor payment data within their CRM. As well as providing insight into individual donor activity, it also helps charities understand the bigger picture by providing full sight of campaign response curves as they happen, including with multiple campaigns running simultaneously, with each campaign and donation categorised and tracked.This helps clients gain a 360-view of donors and their activity, while donor payment data is also pushed to Donorfy automatically as it happens, negating the need to import data manually to keep CRM records up to date.Scott Gray, CEO of Rapidata, said:“Charities are under ever-increasing pressure to improve both efficiencies and donor services. This integration greatly enhances the speed and efficiency of data processing and provides greater levels of donor insight, which will in turn enable charities to be more strategic in their approach to fundraising and offer an even better donor experience. “Collaboration within the sector is key, both between charities and their suppliers and amongst those suppliers that give focus to fundraising development. Our work with Donorfy is an important move in this area and we look forward to building on our work together.” Tagged with: crm data Donorfy payment Rapidata Services plc Melanie May | 23 October 2018 | News Advertisement 99 total views, 1 views today 100 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 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.

Howard Lake | 19 November 2020 | News Advertisement Tagged with: christmas corporate fundraising newspaper The Financial Times has moved from running an annual seasonal charity campaign in the run-up to Christmas to a new format of charitable initiative that focuses on financial literacy and inclusion.The FT Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign will “deliver clear and compelling content on basic financial subjects, and work with partners to make sure the information reaches people who need it most in the UK and around the world”. The campaign will be run by a new charitable foundation which the FT will establish in the first half of 2021. This will work closely with partner charities and organisations to distribute materials, and with FT Schools, a programme which provides free FT.com access and curriculum support to secondary school students.It will co-ordinate with FT journalists to produce accessible, non-academic educational material in video, written and interactive formats on the basics of finance. In particular FT deputy editor Patrick Jenkins, consumer editor Claer Barrett, contributing editor and educator Lucy Kellaway will help launch the initiative.This initiative replaces the FT’s Seasonal Appeal which has in the past launched at this time of the year. Over 15 years it has raised more than £19.5 million for charity partners. As well as fundraising from readers the FT would provide extensive editorial about the work of the charity partners each year, both during and after the campaign.The FT has a paying readership of more than one million, three-quarters of which are digital subscriptions.Patrick Jenkins, FT deputy editor and head of the new campaign, explained the need for the new approach. He said: “Too many people don’t have the basic financial knowledge to help them manage their own money and their lives, compounding the rift between the haves and have-nots that has caused such dislocation in our societies in recent years. The FT is uniquely placed to help bridge the gap in financial literacy.” Roula Khalaf, FT editor, added: “Led by our journalists, this educational campaign will help decode the financial world and give people straight answers on crucial issues, from credit card interest and student loans to taxes and how to start a business. We hope that our readers, many of whom have expertise in this area, will also play a vital role in this effort.”FT readers can register their interest in supporting the campaign by emailing [email protected]
Receive email alerts BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders urged Abdou Diouf, Secretary General of the International Organisation of the French-speaking world (OIF) to intervene with President Paul Kagame on behalf of three wrongly imprisoned journalists, when he makes an official visit to Rwanda on 21 February.They are: Jean-Léonard Rugambage, Tatiana Mukakibibi and Dominique Makeli.”Not one of them has had the right to a trial and the charges brought against them are vague and changing”, said the organisation in its letter to Abdou Diouf, which also details the most common forms of press freedom violations in Rwanda.These were “seizures of the few publications that still dare to be critical, public threats and physical intimidation against journalists who displease.” Recalling the terms of the Bamako Declaration, under which “democracy and French-speaking are inextricably linked”, the organisation urged the OIF secretary general to “intercede on their behalf with the Rwandan government. Their rights as citizens and the freedom of journalists have been trampled. It is vital to put an end to this outrage, perpetuated with complete impunity at the heart of the French-speaking world.”Jean-Léonard Rugambage, journalist on the independent bi-monthly Umuco, was sentenced on 23 November 2005, to one year in prison for “contempt of court” after he contested the impartiality of the president of the people’s court, the “gacaca” which was to try him. His trial for his alleged involvement in a murder during the 1994 genocide was adjourned until next year, when the journalist will have served that sentence. Rugambage was arrested on 7 September, 10 days after publication of an edition of Umuco in which he exposed corruption of some gacaca judges in Ruyumba district and the use of the people’s courts to settle personal scores. The journalist appeared in court for the first time on 5 October, in the presence of a Reporters Without Borders’ representative, before the Ruyumba gacaca, presided over by Théophile Kalisa, at which witnesses made a variety of accusations against him, from distributing weapons to forging passports. One witness accused him of raiding a bank after killing the manager, during the genocide. The victim’s father had nevertheless said he had never seen the journalist. At the 23 November hearing, Rugambage was accompanied by two co-defendants who confessed to the murder of the bank manager. According to him, the victim, a Hutu, was murdered for criminal reasons and not as part of the genocide. Moreover, in 1996, the journalist was tried and acquitted by the ordinary courts on the same charge. He says that the judge, Théophile Kalisa, was among his accusers at this stage.

She and her colleagues fled in July 1994 to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). She returned to Rwanda on 10 August, to Kapgayi, near Gitarama, where she worked with a priest, André Sibomana (former editor of Kinyamateka and winner of the 1994 Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France, press freedom award, who died in March 1998). In July 1995, she was arrested and held for several days. For fear of reprisals she then fled to Uganda. She returned to Rwanda on 30 September 1996 and two days later police came to arrest her at her home in Ntenyo, Gitarama. Mukakibibi was immediately taken to a communal cell and detained in very harsh conditions. The day after her arrest, a police inspector asked her to state that she had left for Uganda under the protection of the priest, Sibomana. She was told she would be free to leave if she confessed. She refused and five days later was accused of having distributed weapons and having killed Eugène Bwanamudogo, a Tutsi who made radio programmes for the ministry of agriculture. During the summer of 2001, the deputy prosecutor for Gitarama confirmed the charges. According to Mukakibibi, her imprisonment was the result of being framed by people in her village because André Sibomana sent reports to international organisations exposing abuses committed by Tutsis in reprisal for the April 1994 genocide. Some of those people named in these reports apparently tried to use her to get André Sibomana arrested.Dominique Makeli, journalist on Radio Rwanda, has been held at Kigali central prison (PCK) since 18 September 1994. He fled in the first days of the genocide to Kibuye, western Rwanda, where one of his sons had been killed one month early by extremist Hutu militiamen. On his return to Kigali on 18 September, he was arrested at his home by an agent from military intelligence (DMI). In October 2001, the state prosecutor, Sylvaire Gatambiye, told Reporters Without Borders that Makeli was accused of “incitement to genocide in his reporting.” In May 1994, he covered an appearance of the Virgin in Kibeho, west of Butare, and reported a statement she was believed to have made as, “the parent is in heaven”. The prosecutor explained, that in the context of the time, that meant, “President Habyarimana is in heaven” and people interpreted the message as God’s support for the former president and, by extension, the policy of massacre of the Tutsis.
