Anglican mission agency USPG announces plans to change its name

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 Posted Jun 26, 2012 Rector Martinsville, VA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Tags Andy Hook says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Featured Events Rector Collierville, TN 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 [Anglican Communion News Service] At its annual conference which began June 25, the 311-year-old Anglican mission and development agency USPG announced it will be changing its name.The decision was taken by USPG’s trustees following a lengthy consultation with churches and supporters of the charity.Delegates attending USPG’s annual conference were given a preview of the new name and logo, which have been designed to reflect the contemporary nature of the work today, and invite many more individuals and churches to find out more and get involved.The new name — United Society, to be known as Us — will be officially adopted at a launch event in November 2012.“We are very proud of our heritage and take seriously our remit to work through Anglican Churches to help global communities tackle poverty,” Canon Linda Ali, chair of USPG’s trustees, explained. “We were founded in 1701. To put this into historical context, in 1701 the composers Bach and Handel were still young men. The original title given to us by our founder, the Rev. Thomas Bray, was The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, which was later abbreviated to SPG.”“No doubt this name worked well in its day, but words like ‘propagation’ are simply outdated in the twenty-first century. So it was time for a change.“Our new name, Us, is directly derived from USPG, so it speaks to our heritage, but it also speaks about inclusivity. There is no ‘them’; we are all ‘us’. Our work — in partnership with the churches of the Anglican Communion — is for the benefit of the whole community, regardless of ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, age or faith. No one is excluded.”The new strapline [advertising slogan] for the charity is “Every person. Every community. A full life.”This is designed to underscore the concept of inclusion and point to a vision of the future, where the words of Jesus in John 10:10 become a reality — the experience of life in all its fullness.In 1965, SPG merged with the Universities’ Mission to Central Africa (UMCA) to form the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (USPG). Three years later, the Cambridge Mission to Delhi (CMD) became part of USPG.Historically, SPG was a traditional missionary-sending agency. John Wesley, who founded Methodism with his brother Charles, was one of many hundreds of missionaries sent around the world by SPG.However, over the decades, this view of mission has shifted, and the focus today is on inspiring local communities to unlock their potential so they can overcome whatever barriers they face, whether economic, political or spiritual.“We are very excited about this new milestone in our history. It demonstrates our commitment to the living out the gospel and communicating this message with clarity,” USPG Chief Executive Janette O’Neill said. “There are hundreds of international charities doing excellent work today, but we remain one of a few agencies that are committed to supporting the churches of the worldwide Anglican Communion as they deliver transformational change.“We hope our new name will help people relate better to the work we are doing today. We are opening a door and inviting everyone to join Us.”USPG works in partnership with Anglican Churches across the world to empower communities and support people in finding solutions to the challenges they face. USPG also supports initiatives to equip church leaders — both lay and clergy – to better serve their communitiesThe new logo and other branding material will not be released until the official launch later this year.In developing its new name and brand strategy, USPG commissioned support from Public Life, a branding and digital agency which specializes in work for charities and other non-profits.

When we refuse to even use the name Jesus, i.e. the Presiding Bishop, we have completely lost our reason for everything. The reason for changing the name is because the word ‘propagate’ is out dated? Then change it to ‘sharing’ or ‘witnessing’ or something of that nature. The acronym ‘Us’ is also very individualistic and superior and I have doubt that people will find offense to that as well.

Blessing of the fleet on Bayou Dularge

Rev. Morris K. Thompson Jr., Bishop of Louisiana, during the blessing of the fleet along the muddy waters of Bayou Dularge. Photo: Karen Mackey[Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana] On April 26, gaily decorated boats with colorful flags and horns blaring paraded along the muddy waters of Bayou Dularge in Louisiana for the annual “Blessing of the Fleet.” For over 60 years St. Andrew’s Episcopal Mission, along with St. Eloi Catholic Church, in the small fishing town of Theriot have hosted this annual boat blessing and parade.This day offers a bit of respite for the hardworking shrimpers who make their living on the waters in south Louisiana. For months they have been preparing their boats. Now it was time for fun and companionship before the rugged work of shrimping continues. The Louisiana brown shrimp season opens soon.At precisely one o’clock in the afternoon, the bell in front of St. Andrew’s was rung to call people to the bayou. The Rt. Rev. Morris K. Thompson Jr., Bishop of Louisiana, offered prayers for the fisherman, the boats, and the community. He then boarded the Brother’s Pride shrimp boat captained by Charles Lovell Jr.The boat parade wound its way on the 20-mile route along Bayou Dularge to Lake De Cade. Throughout the whole journey Thompson moved back and forth from port to starboard sprinkling holy water on people and boats.“Pour that water on me. Give us extra blessings this year,” spectators shouted from the shores.  People smiled and waved as the parade passed.Not everyone had the day off though. The crab fisherman were busy with their chores of mending traps. The oyster fisherman were bringing in their haul. Hundreds of sacks of oysters were being loaded to trucks for transport to restaurants across Louisiana and Mississippi. Life is never still on the bayou.When the shrimp boats turned into Lake De Cade, they were tied together to complete the next step of the annual ritual. Thompson offered prayers for those who died while making their living on the waters. A memorial wreath of daisies was thrown into the lake. “May rest eternal be granted unto them, O Lord,” he said after a moment of silence.Meanwhile back at St. Andrew’s, a crawfish lunch fundraiser was taking place. Visitors from Houma to New Orleans sat underneath sprawling oak trees draped with Spanish moss while eating their fill of spicy crawfish, corn, and potatoes. The funds from the lunch will be used to pay for insurance for the church building and to cover expenses for the Christmas time Santa on the Bayou, a ministry that provides toys and food for families in need.Making a living on these waters is tough, especially over the past decade dealing with hurricanes and the aftermath of the 2010 oil spill. The community is close-knit though. They rely on families and friends to make it through the bad times and celebrate the good times. St. Andrew’s has been a part of the family for over 100 years.The Blessing of the Fleet takes place each year on the last Sunday of April.— Karen Mackey is communications coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana.

MAKING A MARK: Harlem Ambassadors share messages of hope

They talked about the obstacles they have overcome and the choices they made in their educations, as athletes and in their careers, Kidd said Latest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The Harlem Ambassadors Professional Show Basketball team was in Pike County Thursday and Friday and their showmanship and skills on the basketball court seemingly rivaled that of NBA stars, said Camille Downing, Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center executive director.“The basketball game Thursday night at Sartain Hall between the Harlem Ambassadors and the Pike CAC Warriors was fun and exciting ,” Downing said. “And, it was also a fundraiser for the Pike CAC. We want to thank the Harlem Ambassadors and the Pike CAC Warriors for their support. ‘It should never hurt to be a child’ and our mission at the Pike Regional CAC is to protect children in a safe, child-friendly environment. The support of the Harlem Ambassadors, the Pike CAC and everyone that attended the game will go a long way in helping us fulfill our mission.”Not only did the Harlem Ambassadors help raise funds for the Pike CAC, they also visited seven schools within the county in support of East Central Mental Health’s Bully Proof Program.

Now, I travel all over the country and around the world and kids, yell my name, ‘Yoshi! Yoshi!’ and it’s a positive thing.“I tell kids to take what is being used against them and make it work for them.”That’s the message all of the Ambassadors share as they travel city to city.Belizaire said not everyone can be physically tough but everyone can be mentally tough if they embrace who they are by accepting their limitations and accentuating their abilities.“I wanted to be a professional basketball player but I also had a Plan B,” he said. “I knew that even if I made it playing basketball, I couldn’t play forever. So, I got a degree in business. That’s my Plan B.”Belizaire said he realizes a lot of young people have their sights set on being professional athletes – basketball, baseball, and football players.“But the odds of that are very small,” Belizaire said. “So, I tell kids to dream your dream but have a Plan B and, hopefully, that will include your education because an education is the key that unlocks the doors to many dreams.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
