Nick Easter and Jack Nowell both scored hat-tricks as England ended their World Cup campaign with a big win over Uruguay at Manchester City Stadium. They scored ten tries in all as the decision to field more playmakers in their back-line brought more creativity to their game, Henry Slade standing out particularly. Still, there is no escaping how disappointing this campaign has been for the World Cup hosts as their involvement in the tournament is now over.WHAT’S HOTDue North – Given the fact this was a dead rubber it was quite a turnout, with more than 50,000 people at Manchester City Stadium. The crowd weren’t always loud; in fact, the ground was often quieter than we’ve heard it at any game of RWC 2015, but fair play to them for turning up and enjoying the occasion.Northern lights: Young England fans enjoy the game in Manchester. Photo: Getty ImagesSo how about playing a few more fixtures in the North of England? We all know that Tests at Twickenham generate lots of cash for the RFU but spreading the game throughout England is surely just as important as money. Why not stage one autumn Test in Manchester or Leeds or Newcastle ever year?Spirit of adventure – It was refreshing to see England play with such abandon in attack, spinning the ball wide, running inside lines, putting in deft kicks. Obviously there was none of the pressure of their previous pool games, given that their hopes of making the last eight ended against Australia, but Henry Slade’s distribution and the liveliness of Jack Nowell definitely stood out. Jonathan Joseph also made an impact when he came on. It must be said, however, that there needs to be a balance between being creative and being pragmatic – it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Yes, there was nothing riding on this game, but some of the quick lineouts and risky passes were unnecessary. Looking after the ball and more of a calm approach were called for at times.Central figure: Henry Slade showed great footballing skills for his try. Photo: Getty ImagesUruguayan passion – The non-playing members of Uruguay’s squad were sat in front of the press box and it’s fair to say they relished every decision or piece of play that was in their side’s favour. Up on their feet, arms in air, loud cheers. Uruguay deserved praise for their resistance and it was good to see a team celebrating the small victories in a game – one can only imagine the scenes had los Teros managed to score a try!WHAT’S NOTThe breakdown – Yet again England were heavily penalised at the contact area and Uruguay won more turnovers than them (nine to eight). It’s been a theme of their World Cup, but against a largely amateur team like Uruguay they should dominate the contest, particularly given the size differential. There are clearly fundamental flaws to their strategy and technique at the breakdown. Whether this coaching team remains or a new one comes in, this is the area that needs the most attention.Making contact: Uruguay caused England problems at the breakdown. Photo: Getty ImagesNeck roll – Since the first game of this World Cup, the neck roll has been high on referees’ agenda, so why are players still doing it? They knew before the tournament that officials had been told to look out for the offence. A bit of common sense would see players avoid going anywhere near an opponent’s neck when trying to clear them from a ruck.Chatter – More than once referee Chris Pollock had a word with England players for appealing for decisions during the game. One, this is unnecessary – play to the whistle. Two, another directive to referees is to clamp down on players other than the captain continually speaking to them. What were we saying about common sense? Less talk, more action.STATISTICS12 – The number of clean breaks made by England compared to two by Uruguay.

The final Aviva Premiership standings explained

first_img TAGS: Exeter ChiefsWasps The regular season is over but there’s still plenty of rugby to be played. We break down what the final standings mean in terms of the Aviva Premiership semi-finals as well as the situation regarding European Champions Cup qualification.SEMI-FINAL BREAKDOWNA Thomas Young hat-trick and Christian Wade’s record-equalling 17th try of the season helped Wasps to a bonus-point 35-15 win over Saracens and ensured they finished top of the Premiership table. They will now play Leicester at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 20 May, kick-off 5.15pm.Exeter guaranteed home advantage in the other semi-final, beating Gloucester 34-20 and picking up their ninth straight bonus point (eight wins and one in a draw v Wasps). They will meet defending champions Saracens at Sandy Park on Saturday 20 May, kick-off 2.30pm.EUROPEAN QUALIFICATIONNorthampton beat Harlequins 23-20 at Franklin’s Gardens but a losing bonus point means it is Quins who secured the final Champions Cup qualification place. They have won 11 league games this season to Saints’ ten, so while both sides finish on 52 points it is Quins who sit in sixth.Tight tussle: Quins’ Luke Wallace tries to find a gap in Northampton’s defence. Photo: Getty ImagesNorthampton now have to wait to see whether they will be involved in the Champions Cup qualification play-offs. If Gloucester beat Stade Francais to win the Challenge Cup, the Cherry & Whites will enter the play-offs instead of Northampton. If they lose, Saints will be involved.THE FINAL XVThe showdown at Twickenham on Saturday 27 May will be the 15th Premiership final and to mark the occasion a panel of experts have picked a XV of the greatest players to have appeared in the climax of the English league season.The ‘Final XV’ was selected by former England prop Dave Flatman, BT Sport’s Alastair Eykyn and Nick Mullins, Press Association’s Andrew Baldock, ESPN’s Tom Hamilton and Rugby World’s Alan Pearey.This is the team they picked – what do you think?

Fue como el regalo de cumpleaños que me hice a mí misma”.Ella se unió al Partido Republicano“Eso era cuando era el partido de Lincoln, querida, y en el Sur estaba compuesto mayoritariamente de negros”, dice. “El trato era que los negros y los blancos votarían por los candidatos nacionales republicanos, pero los negros tenían que votar por los demócratas en las candidaturas locales”.Ella cuenta que bajo la maquinaria política de Edward Hull Crump (apodado “Boss” o “Jefe”) “acostumbraban a sacar presos, ponerlos en un autobús y llevarlos a los colegios electorales y votaban todos los muertos. Esto básicamente sólo sucedía en los precintos negros. Votarían por quienes les dijeran que votaran”.“Había un grupo de blancos republicanos que quisimos romper esa maquinaria”, dijo Jones. “Esencialmente, establecimos un sistema bipartidista”.Su participación en el movimiento de los derechos civiles comenzó después que el Rdo. Martin Luther King Jr. fue asesinado en el Motel Lorraine en 1968 luego de visitar Memphis para apoyar una huelga de obreros afroamericanos empleados en la recogida de basura.“Inmediatamente después del asesinato del Dr. King, allí se produjo una conmoción bastante seria” recuerda ella. Un día, se invitó a almorzar con alguien de la sede del Partido Republicano que estaba reunido con Jocelyn Wurzburg, una judía que intentaba establecer un capítulo local del Panel de Mujeres Americanas [Panel of American Women] organización dedicada a crear conciencia del prejuicio, el racismo y la discriminación.Jones se incorporó a este empeño. Integrada al panel de mujeres judías, católicas, afroamericanas y blancas protestantes- habló asociaciones de padres y maestros, en iglesias y en agrupaciones cívicas “por toda la ciudad”.“Lo acordado era hablar acerca de los prejuicios raciales y de lo dañinos que eran” explicó ella. “Fuimos muy bien recibidas en la mayoría de los lugares”.Por supuesto, hubo una vez en que estaba sentada al lado de un hombre en un avión con destino a Atlanta. Y al preguntarle a qué se dedicaba, Jones le dijo que pronunciaba discursos sobre “qué gran país era éste y lo maravillosa que era la democracia”.El hombre era el presidente del Consejo de Clubes Cívicos de Bluff City. Creyó que el Panel de Mujeres Americanas sonaba patriótico y las invitó a hablar.El Consejo, cuenta Jones, “era lo más cercano al Consejo del Ciudadano Blanco que uno habría encontrado en Memphis. Yo lo sabía”.“No fuimos bien recibidas, pero resultó divertido. Lo peor fueron los auxiliares del alguacil sentados al fondo y haciendo comentarios desagradables. Ellos no fueron amables, especialmente cuando vieron a una afroamericana entrar con nosotras”.Con mucha frecuencia cuando las miembros del Panel hablaban en alguna parte, contaba ella “las personas del público nunca habían visto a una mujer negra y a una blanca interviniendo como iguales y siendo más o menos de clase media y todo lo demás”. Si bien no podrían haber influido en el consejo de Bluff City, dice, “creo que marcamos una diferencia en otras organizaciones”.Entre tanto, los obreros de la recogida de basura de Memphis estaban preparándose para ir de nuevo a la huelga porque el municipio no reconocía al sindicato. Jones y Wurzburg organizaron un recorrido en autobús para que la gente pudiera ver cómo vivían esos obreros. Se apareció tanta gente que tuvieron que alquilar un segundo autobús.La mayoría de los participantes eran mujeres “blancas, republicanas y preocupadas [por la situación]”, contaba Jones. “No querían ver que la ciudad cayera en el caos en que se había visto inmersa el año antes” cuando mataron a King.El día después del recorrido, las mujeres visitaron el ayuntamiento para reunirse con el alcalde y el concejo municipal. “Vine a terminar como una especie de portavoz del asunto… Lo que hicimos fue redefinir el problema. Dijimos: No se trata sólo de un problema de obreros y patronos. Este es un problema de hambre, pobreza y racismo”.“¿Sabes qué? Nos escucharon. Escucharon con mucha atención. Al sindicato lo reconocieron casi inmediatamente, y no tuvimos otra huelga”.Pero no todo el mundo quedó complacido. Los teléfonos de ellas “sonaban sin cesar con llamadas ofensivas”, contaba Jones. “No podía dejar que mis hijos respondieran el teléfono, así de horrible era… Fue entonces que el Partido Republicano me echó, al menos como funcionaria” (Ella ahora es demócrata).Luego, se enfrentaron a la política de la junta de educación de Memphis de no solicitar fondos federales para almuerzos gratuitos de los escolares pobres. “No querían que el gobierno federal se inmiscuyera en sus asuntos. Ese era su argumento”, contó ella.Antes de la siguiente elección de la junta de educación, ella visitó todas las escuelas negras de la localidad, situadas “en barriadas pésimas” y registró quiénes podían y quiénes no podían costear el almuerzo. “La norma era, si no puedes comer, tienes que ir y sentarte en la cafetería. ¿Podrás creer eso?”.Ella hizo que un grupo de mujeres la acompañaran a la próxima reunión de la junta de educación, donde presentó sus resultados. “Simplemente les dije que era cruel lo que estaban haciendo, y que no había ninguna razón en el mundo para no dar almuerzos gratuitos en esas escuelas. Ellos votaron enseguida y ese mismo día se obtuvieron los almuerzos gratis”.Eso provocó otra llamada cuando ella llegó a la casa, esta vez era de su padre, que era ultraconservador. “A él no le había gustado lo que yo había estado haciendo en el último año, para decir lo menos”, contó. Yo había estado en las noticias de la 5 de la tarde, y él me dijo: ‘Sabes, nunca entenderé lo que haces ni por qué lo haces, pero en verdad lo estás haciendo bien’. Eso era lo más cercano a un cumplido de su parte”.Al reflexionar sobre estos éxitos, ella comentó: Teníamos algún poder. En 1968, yo había sido mencionada por el periódico local, The Commercial Appeal, como una de las 20 figuras políticas más influyentes del condado. Eso te da un poco de poder”.Cuando [a los políticos] los confrontaba un grupo de mujeres blancas, republicanas y activistas de la política local “sencillamente no podían ignorarlo”. dice ella. “Caramba, esa eran las personas que los ponían en el cargo… Además, resultaba penoso. Las mujeres de mi clase no se suponía que estuvieran haciendo eso. Se suponía que asistiéramos a las reuniones de la liga menor. Eso era lo esperado”.Habría sido diferente si ellas hubieran sido negras o blancas de clase baja, agregó.A lo largo de los años, el activismo de Jones continúo orientado hacia varios problemas, entre ellos la violencia doméstica, y trabajó como terapeuta profesional de matrimonios y familias y como asistente social. En su iglesia episcopal de Memphis, La Gracia-San Lucas [Grace-St. Luke’s], trabaja en el banco de alimentos. En 2009, se contó entre las seis mujeres que recibieron el Premio Leyendas de la Fundación de Mujeres de Memphis por su activismo comunitario.Al reflexionar sobre las relaciones raciales en Memphis, advierte progreso y motivos de preocupación. La mayoría de las escuelas municipales negras están siendo consolidadas con la mayoría de las escuelas blancas del condado, y “a la gente del condado no le gusta eso en lo absoluto”, comentó ella. “Las tensiones son muy altas ahora mismo”.“Lo racial aún sigue dividiendo”, añadió. “Pero… tenemos una clase media negra bastante bien establecida, y la mayoría de los barrios que anteriormente eran sólo de blancos, están integrados, en alguna medida. Yo vivo probablemente en el mejor barrio de la ciudad, creo, y ahora está integrado. No en el 50 por ciento o algo así. Tal vez el 25 por ciento. Eso ya es un gran paso”.—Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Canónigo Gregory Straub, secretario de la Convención General y director ejecutivo de la Iglesia, dijo que hasta donde sabía ésta era la primera vez que un obispo primado había propuesto un presupuesto después de que el Consejo Ejecutivo hubiera enviado su anteproyecto al Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F, por su sigla en inglés).“No sabía que la obispa Katharine estuviese preparando su propio presupuesto”, dijo Bonnie Anderson, presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados en un mensaje por correo electrónico el 21 de junio.Anderson asistía esa tarde a una partida de béisbol en el estadio de los Tigres de Detroit y dijo que “estudiaría lo que ella [Jefferts Schori] ha sacado cuando llegue a casa”.Steve Lane, obispo de la Diócesis de Maine y quien preside el PB&F, dijo a ENS, en una entrevista telefónica, que acogía con beneplácito la propuesta de Jefferts Schori.“Creo que los presupuestos son documentos del liderazgo, y yo había estado esperando que la obispa primada como nuestra líder hiciera una declaración sobre las prioridades y la estrategia del presupuesto”, agregó. “Me siento muy complacido de ver que ella ha hecho eso. Creo que es una importante contribución a la Iglesia”.Si bien su decisión de proponer un presupuesto alternativo podría parecer “inusual”, dijo Lane, “no veo que la obispa primada haya incurrido en la violación de ningún canon o de cualquier otra cosa al hacer su propia declaración de fines y propósitos”.Lane dijo que el PB&F hará “lo ajustes pertinentes” al anteproyecto del presupuesto del Consejo basándose en todas las contribuciones que haya recibido y lo que oirá en la Convención General. Él llamó a la propuesta de Jefferts Schori “datos importantes” que establecen algunas claras prioridades y dijo que “[el Comité] de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas tendrá que considerar eso junto con el resto”.Él y otros miembros del comité están conscientes de “montones de propuestas en la blogosfera, algunas de las cuales son bastante específicas” y han estado entrevistando a miembros del personal del centro denominacional y a otros líderes de la Iglesia “a fin de estar tan preparados como sea posible cuando nos reunamos” en Indianápolis el 4 de julio.Un comienzo a partir de ceroJefferts Schori dijo que su propuesta comenzaba como un presupuesto de base cero, para permitir un proceso de mayor fundamentación teológica y más estratégico”, es decir, “espiritualmente enriquecedor en lugar de agotador” y a tono con un documento que mira hacia delante.Ella también hizo notar que la propuesta es más detallada en las áreas de misión y administración porque fueron esas áreas las que ella había supervisado. [El documento] sugiere una reducción global de un cinco por ciento en costos de gobierno y prevé asignar esos costos “colaborativamente, en consulta con otros líderes electos, entre ellos la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el encargado ejecutivo de la Convención General y el Consejo Ejecutivo”.La propuesta se basa en pedirle a las diócesis y misiones regionales de la Iglesia que contribuyan con el 19 por ciento de su ingreso anual de los dos años anteriores (menos $120.000) durante cada año del trienio. Ese porcentaje es el mismo de la contribución de 2012 luego de haber decrecido del 21 por ciento en 2010 y del 20 por ciento en 2011.El Consejo elaboró su versión final del presupuesto 2013-2015 partiendo de la contribución del 19% y bosquejando los gastos a partir de una versión del 15 por ciento. Para ese escenario de gastos, los miembros del Consejo luego jerarquizaron sus prioridades restaurando partes del presupuesto a los niveles del 19 por ciento. Esas prioridades incluyen el invertir en redes de contacto emergentes y en apoyar las que ya existen, potenciando el ministerio y las comunicaciones locales.En conformidad con la propuesta de la obispa primada se reducirían 12,75 puestos del personal de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, aunque cinco de esas plazas se encuentran actualmente vacantes.Jefferts Schori centró su propuesta presupuestaria en torno a las Cinco Marcas Anglicanas de la Misión, que la Convención General refrendó en 2009 (a través de la Resolución D027) y dijo que el presupuesto de la Iglesia para el [trienio] 2013-2015 debía centrarse en las Marcas como “prioridades estratégicas”.Su mensaje resalta seis iniciativas que se concentran en las Cinco Marcas y ascienden a $8 millones.Un cambio en la organización presupuestariaLa obispa primada también afincó su propuesta en el continuo llamado de ella y otros a reestructurar y reformar la Iglesia. “Como en todas las épocas, nuestra Iglesia está necesitada de reforma, a fin de emprender la misión que Dios nos ha puesto por delante”, dijo Jefferts Schori. “Esta propuesta presupuestaria aspira a ser el comienzo de ese empeño reformador”.El presupuesto está organizado con una “prioridad espiritual”, según la cual lo primero es la misión, seguida por el gobierno y la administración, afirmó, en que el segundo y la tercera están “al servicio” de la primera.La obispa primada también señaló que su propuesta representa un cambio del tradicional modelo presupuestario canónico (Canon I.4.6(b) y (c)) de listar los gastos como canónicos, corporativos y de programa. Ese modelo “ya no sirve idóneamente a la Iglesia para responder a un mundo que está mucho más necesitado de nuestro compañerismo”.Cada partida de la propuesta está concebida como perteneciente a una de esas tres áreas “a fin de satisfacer los Cánones”, dijo Jefferts Schori “pero las categorías canónicas existentes no parecen estratégicamente útiles y la propuesta presupuestaria no está organizada en consecuencia”.Jefferts Schori expresó que esta propuesta era necesaria porque si bien el Consejo Ejecutivo fue “fiel” en este empeño de preparar y aprobar un anteproyecto de presupuesto de una manera diferente de las convenciones anteriores, “no surgió una estrategia coherente” de esos esfuerzos.Jefferts Schori citó un fragmento del Canon I.2.4(a)(1) que la autorizaba a hacer la propuesta. El segmento dice que compete al[a la] Obispo[a] Primado[a] “asumir el liderazgo necesario para iniciar y desarrollar la política y la estrategia en la Iglesia”.Tradicionalmente, la obispa primada, con la ayuda de algunos miembros del personal del centro denominacional, le presenta al Consejo Ejecutivo un borrador del presupuesto en los meses que anteceden a la Convención General. El Consejo luego puede alterar esa propuesta.Las normas parlamentarias conjuntas de la Convención General (in II.10 10 (a)) requieren que el Consejo le remita al Comité de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas un borrador del presupuesto no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención. Ni al Consejo ni al PB&F se les permite cambiar el documento del presupuesto entre el momento en que el Consejo se lo envía al PB&F y el comienzo de la Convención General. Una vez que la Convención comienza le corresponde al PB&F redactar un presupuesto para someterlo a la aprobación de la Convención.Sin embargo, se han suscitado interrogantes respecto a ciertas frustraciones con el proceso presupuestario y los documentos que ha producido. Al final de su reunión de abril en Salt Lake City, el Consejo Ejecutivo emitió un memorándum en el que decía que el anteproyecto de presupuesto que se le había dado a conocer a la Iglesia “no es exactamente” el que se había aprobado.El 1 de junio, Jefferts Schori, el jefe de operaciones [de la Iglesia], el obispo Stacy Souls, y el tesorero ante la Convención General, Kurt Barnes, dieron a conocer una versión anotada del borrador del presupuesto del Consejo.Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas comenzó a estudiar el anteproyecto 2013-2015 a principios de febrero. En la Convención General tendrán lugar tres audiencias [sobre este asunto]:El 4 de julio a las 12:30 P.M. sobre el marco del presupuesto y el proceso presupuestario.El 6 de julio a las 7:30 P.M. sobre financiación.El 7 de julio a las 7:30 P.M. sobre gastos.El PB&F presentará su propuesta presupuestaria a una sesión conjunta de la Cámara de Diputados y la Cámara de Obispos el 10 de julio a las 2:15 P.M. Se espera una votación final sobre el presupuesto el 12 de julio, el último día de la Convención.“Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas enfrenta una tarea de enormes proporciones” dijo Lane, advirtiendo que el trabajo de ese comité debe estar listo para el 9 de julio a fin de que el presupuesto se presente al día siguiente.Lane prometió que “presentaremos a la Convención General un presupuesto tan claro como podamos arreglárnosla para aunar esfuerzos en el tiempo que tenemos”.— La Rda.

It was noted that this was the first meeting of the dialogue committee since the January 2011 Revolution in Egypt. It was also noted that the dialogue in London in 2011 had been curtailed due to the political situation in Egypt which had required the Grand Imam to be present in Egypt.In his opening remarks The Grand Imam quoted the teaching of the Holy Qu’ran which requires all peoples to work together to understand and appreciate difference, whether of language, creed or race,  and to work together for the cause of justice, peace and the well-being of all on earth.The two co-chairs, Dr. Hamdy Zagzouk and Bishop Mouneer Hanna Anis, opened the meeting with readings from the Qu’ran and the Bible, respectively and reaffirmed the importance of this dialogue between Muslims and Christians. The dialogue committee praised the al-Azhar Declaration on the Future of Egypt which promotes the need to guarantee the rights and responsibilities of all citizens. The document outlines that in accepting the rights of citizenship, the citizen also accepts the responsibility to share in the development of society and to work for peace and the welfare of all.The dialogue committee expressed its condolences to all those whose loved ones were killed or injured in the train crash, recalling in particular the children killed who were from Al Azhar school in Assuit.The dialogue committee commended the Grand Imam for establishing “Beit el Aila” for the promotion of national unity in Egypt. The dialogue committee also expressed its appreciation for the UK Christian Muslim Forum initiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the UK.The Anglican delegation presented a paper on the understanding of “Citizenship in Christianity”. Although the context of our meeting was Egypt, the conversation was enriched by hearing of positive experiences in Muslim Christian relationships in many other parts of the world, including Pakistan, Malaysia and the United Kingdom. The paper was accepted with great appreciation.The delegation from Al Azhar presented two papers on the understanding of “Citizenship in Islam” and another on ‘Building Citizenship’. Dr Mahmoud Azab spoke about citizenship in Islam, in particular the al- Azhar Declaration on the Future of Egypt with its three principles:to institute a democratic, constitutional and modern stateto accept a democratic systemto be committed to a basic system of freedom. These freedoms are belief, expression, academic research and creativity in art and literature.Dr. Mohammed Shamma presented a paper on ’Islam and Secularism’ in which he outlined three main themes: secularism, absolutism and relativism, and citizenship.The two papers were heard with great appreciation and were discussed in depth. Our discussion identified the gap between the teaching of religion and the practice of religion.We rejoiced that the our dialogue was done in the spirit of wisdom, with the intention to affirm the values of truth, justice, knowledge, progress, peace, and to affirm the principles of citizenship and to raise the nation to achieve welfare for all.The members of the dialogue committee agreed to meet in Autumn 2013 in the UK.A PDF of the Communique in English and Arabic is available here Rector Knoxville, TN Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Martinsville, VA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit a Press Release Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Albany, NY Press Release Service Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

His sense of humor came through with each time I tried and because of his truth, honesty and theatrical ability I was able to do my acting job by opening night!

It changed our lives, for Gail and I were in the first year of our marriage, and Bill and Polly were great mentors and friends. Then in 1972, Gail and I were invited by Bishop Spofford and the Diocese of Eastern Oregon to be their program coordinator. The next three years, thanks to the benefit of the United Thank Offering, was again life changing.We lived in Bend, and I could only have wished that I had found deployment when my work ended in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks Bill. You were the best Bishop I had in my entire ministry.Dear friend, may you rest in priest. You taught me well.

I was attending junior high camp and Father Spofford, a parish priest (from Weiser, I seem to remember), was there. I remember her was game enough to allow us to throw him off the dock into Payette Lake. Our nightly campfires were wonderful led by him. He made us think about many things about the scriptures. He was loved by all the campers; everyone tried to sit at his table at meals.Next I knew him as Dean of St. Michael’s in Boise, my home church. He chanted (sang!) the service beautifully. He had a marvelous voice. He had an important singing role in the production of “Oklahoma” at Boise High. I wrote to him a few times while away at college and after he returned from Jerusalem he sent me his little book of thoughts. It is something I treasure and keep on my night stand.He and my dad, Dave, were friends. I’m sure they’re having deep discussions in heaven.RIP Bishop Spofford. You will be missed here. Norma Stevlingson says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Job Listing November 12, 2013 at 2:48 pm In 1977 I got to spend the summer with Bill Spofford in Eastern Oregon while I was a seminarian. He had a profound influence on me. Bill, two high school students, and I traveled through the south eastern corner of the Diocese. We did various projects in each of four towns, Lakeview, Burns, John Day and Baker. As we moved between the towns, the distances are great in Eastern Oregon, Bishop Spofford would often stop at isolated ranches. Those visits from Bill were the only Church some people got. I particularly remember Evening Prayer at a large cattle ranch miles from the nearest paved road. Bill didn’t just visit Episcopalians. More than once on that trip Bill stopped to visit and support a clergyperson of another denomination. One minister told me he never saw his own denominational officials but Bill Spofford was there for him. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC November 6, 2013 at 6:49 pm Bill Spofford was one of the great bishops of our church. Even though his service, as Dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral, was nearly forty five years ago, he’s still remembered and quoted often, but our senior members. He was known for his booming voice, and his prophetic ministry. As Dean of St. Michael’s he’s remembered for talking about issues publicly well before they were being discussed in the wider church. Bill, as priest, dean and bishop, served our Church with distinction. While Bill’s rest will surely be in eternity, it may not be completely in peace. As one of those ‘hounds of heaven’ I have no doubt that Bill will continue to be the ‘leaven in the lump’ in heaven as he certainly was on this earth! Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Leslie K.

I was a “pearl diver” (dishwasher) for that best summer of my life. Bill and Polly, the boys, and the dog were visiting from Massachusetts and rumors were flying that Bill was going to be appointed Dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral in Boise. And, indeed, that came to pass several months later. After he arrived, my best friend and I began attending St. Michael’s, continuing through high school and during summers while I was in college. He will be so missed. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ [Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. William B. Spofford, the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, died Nov. 5 at age 92.Spofford, who retired from Eastern Oregon in 1979, was living in Portland, Oregon, and died in his apartment there, just after receiving the Ministration at the Time of Death.An obituary from Eastern Oregon called Spofford a “prophet, priest, poet and pastor.”A Brooklyn, New York, native, Spofford was ordained deacon on St. Andrew’s Day 1944 and priest in 1945. He served churches in Massachusetts, Michigan and Idaho, and was chaplain to the Massachusetts General Hospital and clinical training fellow at the Kansas State Hospital and Boys Industrial School, Topeka, Kansas.He was dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral in Boise, Idaho, when the House of Bishops elected him in the fall of 1968 to serve as bishop to what was then the Missionary District of Eastern Oregon. He was one of the last people selected by that body before the term was dropped and those jurisdictions were permitted to elect their own bishops.Spofford was ordained and consecrated on the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul (Jan. 25) 1969 during a snowstorm in Ontario.Spofford was one of two men who made history in 1967 when serving as elected delegates to what was then called the Triennial Meeting of the Women of the Church. The other was the Rev. Powell Woodward of Central New York. During the 1967 General Convention, Spofford also was elected to serve on the church’s Executive Council.In Eastern Oregon, where he often arrived for visitations and meetings on his motorcycle, he worked for new models of broader ministry, ecumenical relationships, a functional diaconate and a new vision of stewardship.After he left the Eastern Oregon diocese, Spofford served as assistant bishop of the Diocese of Washington and bishop-chaplain at St. George’s College in Jerusalem. He was a member of the ACLU, the League of Women Voters and the Oregon United Nations Association.Spofford is survived by his five sons: Timothy; triplets, Mark, Andrew and Stephen; and Daniel.The first memorial service will be held Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. at Trinity Cathedral, Portland, and the second memorial service will be on Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at Ascension Camp and School, in Cove, Diocese of Eastern Oregon.

To spend such time with this wise, compassionate, down-to-earth bishop, thoroughly grounded in the Gospel and in what it means to love God by loving God’s people, was a great gift and one of the defining experiences of my priestly formation.

I was ordained a deacon in Burns, OR in 1969 and priest in Ontario, OR in 1970. Bishop Spofford was, for me, a powerful mentor and friend. He was an energetic presence and simply overflowed with ideas. He was a disciple of Rowland Allen, the English priest who was the creative spirit behind Total Ministry, a program which is increasingly relevant in the Episcopal Church. Bishop Spofford would often arrive, on his motorcycle, a bit rumpled. I remember that the clergy of the diocese brought him a voluminous chasuble, a style just then coming into popularity, which he could use to cover up his “motorcycle” clothes. He was also well known for camping out in a tent for his first meeting of the House of Bishops, objecting to the cost of the facility in which they were meeting! A great man and a true Christian.
