Photo/Richard Schori[Episcopal News Service] The Very Rev. Jacob W. Owensby was ordained and consecrated on July 21 as the fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana during a service at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Shreveport.Owensby, 54, succeeds the Rt. Rev. D. Bruce MacPherson, who is retiring after leading the diocese as its bishop for the last 10 years.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori served as chief consecrator during the service. Co-consecrators were MacPherson and Bishop George Wayne Smith of Missouri. Nine other Episcopal bishops and one Lutheran bishop also participated in the service. The preacher was the Very Rev. Brian Grantz, dean of St. James Cathedral in South Bend, Indiana.Owensby served as dean of St. Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of the Western Louisiana diocese, since January 2009. He previously served as rector of Emmanuel Church, Webster Groves, Missouri; as rector of St. Stephen’s Church, Huntsville, Alabama; and as assistant rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, in Jacksonville, Florida. He holds bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in philosophy from Emory University, and a Master of Divinity degree from the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1997.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori with Western Louisiana Bishop Jacob Owensby. Photo/Richard SchoriShortly after his election on April 21, Owensby said: “I am humbled to be called to be the fourth bishop of Western Louisiana and filled with affection for the good people who make this part of our state their geographical and spiritual home … My first and most important job is to love the people of this diocese and to help them grow in their witness to the extravagant love of God in Jesus Christ. I am especially looking forward to building deep relationships with my fellow clergy, visiting with our congregations and helping them to grow in vitality, and serving our Lord together with these wonderful people.”Owensby is married to Joy, and they have three children; Andrew (23), Meredith (19) and Patrick (15).The Western Louisiana diocese extends from the Arkansas border to the Gulf of Mexico and includes 52 congregations. July 25, 2012 at 7:49 pm I’m a little shocked by this reaction. Do Episcopalians not value diversity in their church?

CANADA: Saskatchewan diocese elects first indigenous bishop

first_img Youth Minister Lorton, VA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Knoxville, TN This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 [Anglican Journal] The Ven. Adam Halkett, archdeacon of Saskatchewan and priest-in-charge at St. Joseph’s, Montreal Lake First Nations, has been elected the first diocesan indigenous bishop of Saskatchewan. He was chosen July 28 by the diocese’s general assembly in Prince Albert.The election and consecration of a diocesan indigenous bishop is part of Mamuwe Isi Mywachimowin (“Together in the Gospel”), a proposal adopted by the indigenous council and executive committee of Saskatchewan and approved by the metropolitan and executive committee of the province of Rupert’s Land in 2011.“It’s wonderful to see the vision of the elders fulfilled,” said Bishop-elect Halkett. “The healing journey with the elders, the youth and the whole church continues mamuwe.”The council of elders nominated Archdeacon Halkett along with two other candidates: Canon Park Buck and the Rev. Beryl Whitecap, who withdrew her name before the assembly met. The election was held in a traditional manner with delegates lining up behind their preferred nominees.As a sign of the new healing and new beginnings undertaken by the diocese,the assembly took place at the Senator Allen Bird Memorial Gym—on the very site of the former Prince Albert-All Saints Indian Residential School.“This is another example of the new and creative ways that the Spirit is leading us on our journey of healing and reconciliation in the Council of the North,” said Archbishop David Ashdown, metropolitan of the province of Rupert’s Land.Added Bishop Michael Hawkins of the diocese of Saskatchewan: “This general assembly was a profound experience of gospel healing and unity. I look forward to working and walking alongside Adam, together in the gospel.” Hawkins also acknowledged the elders who made the nominations: “The council has been a tremendous source of wisdom and encouragement to me and the diocese.”He noted that the assembly also elected a new indigenous council. “With a new bishop, council of elders and indigenous council, we are well-equipped to renew the church for gospel ministry and mission in northern Saskatchewan. We are walking the dream!”Bishop Lydia Mamakwa, bishop of the northern Ontario region of the diocese of Keewatin, was also gratified with the outcome. “I’m so happy for Saskatchewan,” she said.” It’s been a long journey and a lot of work. We give thanks to our creator for taking them this far in their journey.” Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Associate Rector Columbus, GA Featured Events Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Anglican Communion, Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Press Release Service Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Washington, DC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Bishop Elections, The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate Diocese of Nebraska Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Shreveport, LA Tags Rector Bath, NC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Martinsville, VA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 CANADA: Saskatchewan diocese elects first indigenous bishop By Anglican Journal staffPosted Jul 30, 2012 Indigenous Ministries, An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Belleville, IL An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Rector Pittsburgh, PA Submit a Press Release People Rector Hopkinsville, KY The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Tampa, FL Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

RIP: Former Diocese of Eastern Oregon Bishop Rustin R. Kimsey

first_img Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR April 14, 2015 at 2:30 pm We pray for the repose of the soul of our dear brother and friend in Christ. Bishop Rusty was blessing to Alaska. We are forever grateful for his ministry of presence, guidance, love and care during our time without a diocesan Bishop. Rusty’s willingness to be with us, laugh with us, worship and pray with us, even ride snow-go (snow mobile) in the middle of winter on the side of a mountain to attend a burial in one of our villages has earned him a very special place in the hearts of many Alaskans. Our love and prayers go to Gretchen and family.

Although both of my parents and numerous aunts are gone he blessed us with his love and guidance for years. RIP and know heaven awaits your presence. April 15, 2015 at 9:52 pm We knew Rusty as our Bishop in Eastern Oregon for many years. He ministered to our broken hearts through divorces and our re-marriage. He ministered to our five (blended family) children on the grounds of Cove Ascension School camps. He ministered to those adults who braved the waters of the Cursillo experience at Cove. He allowed us to relax, read, laugh, and share Family Camp with he and his family. He confirmed us both and we still feel the strong hand and seal of Bishop Rustin Kimsey on our cheeks and our hearts. Rest well and dance like the winds of Eastern Oregon. Your grateful friends, Terry and Diana April 13, 2015 at 5:21 pm What a great guy — we were on Executive Council together. Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Collierville, TN House of Bishops, John C Matthew says: April 13, 2015 at 6:03 pm Rusty was “one of the good ones”, a priest rooted in and deeply committed to his native land, a fine bishop (and worthy successor to Bill Spofford), and a dependable, wise colleague in the Church’s wider ministries. With all this, he was a good man, good in all those basic, old-fashioned ways–kind, compassionate, humble but knowing his gifts and a faithful steward of them. I am so grateful to have known him and had chances to work with him. Thank God for Rusty!

I will always miss him, yet I will always look for him to appear horseback, riding out of the endless sea of sagebrush in our Great Basin, tending and leading his faithful. Rector Pittsburgh, PA April 15, 2015 at 4:42 pm I went to Cove (church camp) with Rusty as a young girl living in Bend, Or. It was a sign of God’s good grace that we were able in our adult lives to reconnect at Province and other meetings around our shared commitment to Mutual Ministry or Total Ministry — emphasizing baptismal ministry as the root and juice of the life of the church. Rusty always had a good plain story, often self deprecatory, which seemed to just fit the situation. I am grateful for Gretchen’s reflections during these “in between months” as she gave feminine voice to the shared wisdom of their love.

Rusty was a kind and intelligent man…he had a wonderful smile that was filled with warmth!! From time to time he would drive Gretchen and myself down to the Habitat For Humanity Re-Store Store…we would talk and laugh. When I heard about his passing…I was really sad, then all of a sudden my body felt all tingly, and my heart felt empty. But now that I know he is in heaven with god i feel a little better. Gretchen loved her husband Rusty very much and i could tell by the way she used to talk about him! She is a very dedicated woman who loves to volunteer for this community and loves everyone in it! I am so thankful to have her as a dear close friend!!! I will miss Rusty very much!! I am also thankful for having known him for these many long years!!From,India Zenker April 24, 2015 at 2:53 pm As I look out my window on this raining Friday, I’m preoccupied with the impact Rusty has had on my family. While I did not personally know Rusty, he was a lifelong friend of my father, John Cusick, and has indirectly had a profound impact on my life. Whether the conversation was regarding social justice or spiritual development, Rusty was routinely referenced by my parents in a way that was eye opening and grounding. Thank you Rusty for your passion, vision, tolerance, and commitment to those in need. Your friendship with my parents has had a permanent impact on the fabric of our family. Our hearts and prayers are with Gretchen and your family. You will certainly be missed.

His wisdom and integrity have been important examples for me ever since. He saw the beauty and value of the small and ordinary — in congregational life and in everyday life around town, in the surrounding orchards and in the tiny communities and ranches that make up Eastern Oregon. I learned from my time with him that God is everywhere and in every person and thing; we need only look. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest [Episcopal Diocese of Easter Oregon] A sixth generation Oregonian, the Rt. Rev. Rustin R. “Rusty” Kimsey was born on June 20, 1935 in Bend, Oregon, to Lauren Chamness Kimsey and Lois Elena (Moorhead) Kimsey. He died at home on April 10 at the age of 79.The Rt. Rev. Rustin R. Kimsey, the fifth bishop of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, spoke at the Aug. 4, 2014 memorial service for the Rev. Tish Croom. Photo: Angela Gorham/Diocese of Eastern OregonEducated in Bend and Hermiston public schools and the University of Oregon (B.S. 1957), Kimsey’s Christian formation was secured from boyhood at Ascension School and Conference Center in Cove, Oregon. Kimsey attended the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, receiving a Bachelor of Divinity degree in 1960.Ordained a deacon and priest that same year, Kimsey served churches in Redmond, Baker City and The Dalles. In 1969 he was appointed to the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, the governing body of the Episcopal Church between triennial meetings of General Convention. He was re-elected to the council twice and served a total of thirteen years.During that time he was appointed to serve as the Episcopal Church’s priest representative on the Anglican Consultative Council, an international council representing 85 million Anglicans worldwide. In 1977 he served as the Episcopal Church’s chair of the first Partners in Mission Consultation, in which Anglican and ecumenical partners from around the world listened, critiqued and helped shape the ministry and mission of the Episcopal Church.Active in community and regional concerns, Kimsey helped establish mental health programs for all ages, volunteered at the Regional Training Center for those with disabilities, served on the advisory board of Haven and was appointed by then-Gov. Victor Atiyeh to the Columbia River Gorge Commission.In 1980 Kimsey was elected as the fifth bishop of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, and on Aug. 4 he was consecrated at The Dalles High School Kurtz Gymnasium, followed by a gala procession to historic St. Paul’s Chapel on Union Street. “Old St. Paul’s” was soon to be the spiritual home and administrative center for the diocese. For 20 years, 59,000 square miles of the sacred turf east of the Cascades was “home” for Kimsey’s ministry to others in the name of Christ. He established and strengthened communities of faith to be more open and inclusive, waged battle with inappropriate leadership and abusive authority, enhanced ecumenical and interfaith relationships, encouraged congregations to become involved in their towns and villages as partners in responding to human need and social justice issues, reflecting the hospitality of Christ.Kimsey served on several boards and commissions for the House of Bishops. The highlight was his chairmanship of the Episcopal Church’s Commission on Ecumenical Relations from 1994-2000.  During those years the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Episcopal Church forged an agreement, Called to Common Mission, which brought these two faith communities into full communion.Kimsey retired as bishop of Eastern Oregon in 2000. In 2005 he accepted an appointment as assisting bishop of Navajoland, retiring from that sacred duty in July 2006. Kimsey was appointed assisting bishop of the Diocese of Alaska in 2009 until Alaska chose its current bishop in 2010.He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Gretchen (Rinehart) Kimsey; their children, Sean Kimsey of The Dalles and Bangkok, Thailand (Khing); Megan Jarman of Seattle, Wshington (Mark); Larry Parlin of Lyons, Oregon (Leisa); grandchildren, William and Lauren Jarman; an older brother, Lloyd Kimsey of Carlsbad, California; an aunt, Margaret Troedson of Pendleton, Oregon and several cousins, nieces and nephews.A public service of Compline and Vigil will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on April 24 with the Rev. Patrick Bell officiating. A service of thanksgiving for Kimsey’s life and ministry will be held on April 25 at Calvary Baptist Church in The Dalles with diocese of Eastern Oregon Bishop Provisional Bavi “Nedi” Rivera officiating.

Peter Bisson, the Rev. Stephen Farris, Archbishop Gérard Pettipas and the Rt. Rev. Gary Paterson look on. Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal, Ottawa] Acknowledging that their apologies for harms done at Indian residential schools “are not enough,” Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and United church leaders on June 2 welcomed the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), which they say will offer direction to their “continuing commitment to reconciliation” with Indigenous peoples.“It is clear that Indian Residential Schools, in policy and in practice, were an assault on Indigenous families, culture, language and spiritual traditions, and that great harm was done,” said a joint response read, on behalf of the churches, by Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.While noting the “good intent and care of many who worked” as staff in these federally funded, church-run schools, the churches admitted that “those harmed were children, vulnerable, far from their families and communities,” and that “the sexual, physical, and emotional abuse they suffered is well-documented.”The response was made  after the TRC released its final report that offered 94 “Calls to Action” on issues around Aboriginal spirituality, education, health, missing residential schools children, justice and language, among others.The churches — all signatories to the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement—responded to some of the TRC’s recommendations that were directly addressed to them. “We are committed to respect Indigenous spiritual traditions in their own right,” they said, a promise that was met with loud applause.The TRC report specifically calls on churches as well as other faith groups to “formally recognize Indigenous spirituality as a valid form of worship that is equal to their own” in order to address the “spiritual violence” committed in the schools.“As individual churches and in shared interfaith and ecumenical initiatives…we will continue to foster learning about and awareness of the reality and legacy of the residential schools, the negative impact of such past teachings as the Doctrine of Discovery, and the new ways forward found in places, such as  the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,” the churches also vowed.They also promised to continue funding “community-controlled initiatives in healing, language and cultural revitalization, education and relationship-building, and self-determination.”The statement also committed to involving the churches in “Calls to Action that include our members as citizens and residents of Canada,” such as the call to establish a National Council of Reconciliation.The statement was signed by the Rev. Stephen Farris, moderator of the Presbyterian church; the Rt. Rev. Gary Paterson, moderator of the United Church; Fr. Peter Bisson, Provincial of the Jesuits in English Canada, and Archbishop Gerard Pettipas, President of the Catholic Entities Parties to the Indian Residential School Settlement, all of whom were present for its reading.Pettipas proceeded to read a statement from the Roman Catholic entities involved in residential schools, which reiterated a commitment to healing and reconciliation. But the statement did not address the TRC’s call for the Pope to issue an apology “for the Roman Catholic Church’s role in the spiritual, cultural, emotional, physical and sexual abuse of First Nations, Inuit and Métis children in Catholic-run residential schools.”In addition to the churches, there were also responses from the survivors, represented by former Assembly of First Nations (AFN) National Chief Phil Fontaine (who was instrumental in negotiating the Indian residential schools settlement agreement that launched the TRC); the federal government, represented by Aboriginal affairs and northern development minister Bernard Valcourt; the AFN, represented by national chief Perry Bellegarde; and the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, represented by National Inuit Leader Terry Audla.

Deon Johnson consecrated 11th bishop of Missouri

first_img [Diocese of Missouri] The Rt. Rev. Deon Kevin Johnson was ordained and consecrated as the 11th bishop of the Diocese of Missouri on June 13 at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis. He becomes the first black, openly gay bishop in the 179-year history of the diocese.Missouri Bishop Deon Johnson“To find ourselves in this moment, the [descendant] of a slave, to be called to be the bishop of Missouri – God is good!” Johnson said during his ordination service. “To the people of Missouri, we have a whole new story to tell and a whole new boldness to tell it with. So I look forward to the adventure.”The Rt. Rev. George Wayne Smith, the 10th bishop of Missouri, served as the chief consecrator. He was joined by the Rt. Rev. Jennifer L. Baskerville-Burrows, bishop of Indianapolis; the Rt. Rev. Bonnie A. Perry, bishop of Michigan, and the Rt. Rev. Phoebe A. Roaf, bishop of West Tennessee.For health concerns, only those with participating roles in the service and the bishop’s immediate family attended in person. The service was livestreamed through the diocesan Facebook page and website. The livestream itself was a combination of pre-recorded videos and a live feed of the service.Johnson, an immigrant from Barbados, has served as a priest in The Episcopal Church since 2003, most recently as rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brighton, Michigan.In the week following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Johnson participated in nonviolent protests in the St. Louis region. Days after the clearing of nonviolent protesters at St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C., Johnson spoke at a solidarity rally at St. John’s Episcopal Church in St. Louis’ Tower Grove neighborhood.“Fear would tell us that dignity belongs to some and not to others. As followers of Jesus, we must live and know that perfect love casts out fear,” he wrote in a statement following the rally. “We must, in the words of the Prophet Micah, ‘do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.’”Johnson spoke to the parishioners and ministers of Christ’s word in the Diocese of Missouri, calling on the community to defend the rights and the dignity of all God’s children, and seeking and serving Christ in all people—even those with whom we disagree.“We must be about the mission of working for justice and showing God’s love in this time and place,” he said. “We must be about the mission of speaking truth to power and making no peace with oppression.” Rector Martinsville, VA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Tampa, FL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Posted Jun 15, 2020 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit a Job Listing Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Deon Johnson consecrated 11th bishop of Missouri The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
