Statement in response to immigration reform actions by U.S. President Barack Obama

November 21, 2014 – Metropolitan Community Churches and the Global Justice Institute applaud U.S. President Barack Obama for making bold moves to reform the U.S. immigration system.  Building on the immigrant reform actions of his nine predecessors, he announced changes that would permit children brought to the U.S. by their parents to remain indefinitely, expand the system of work permits, reduce barriers to higher education, and support family unification for certain bi-national families.  These measures constitute a major step in the right direction.

 

While we applaud President Obama, we are reminded that these actions fall short of the comprehensive immigration reform we, along with all other fair-minded stakeholders, have been seeking for years.  We must not leave LGBT families separated across borders, isolate and marginalize LGBT asylum seekers, or exclude any immigrant group from access to health care and social services.  Money spent on border security would better serve immigrants’ need for quality health care, education, affordable housing.  Despite these shortcomings, the President’s reforms constitute an expanded foundation upon which we must pursue greater freedoms.

 

We remind the President and Congress that immigrants are our sisters and brothers, neighbors, co-workers, friends, classmates, and fellow parishioners. They are contributors to healthy, vibrant communities. They are all children of God who deserve dignity, respect, and the freedom of opportunity that all other U.S. residents enjoy.  Because executive actions by any President are temporary, we call on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation to ensure that all who desire a better life in the United States have a permanent and legal pathway toward that pursuit.

National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath

A diverse coalition of faith groups has come together to oppose gun violence in the U.S.  Faiths United, which MCC and the Global Justice Institute have endorsed, is inviting congregations, houses of worship, and people of faith to participate in the annual Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath Weekend (Thursday – Sunday, December 11-14, 2014).  The timing coincides with the anniversary of the elementary school shootings in Newtown,GunViolencePreventionSabbathConnecticut.  Sponsors hope to double participating from the previous Sabbath’s 1,000 places of worship. The weekend will start with a special December 11 event in the nation’s capital hosted by theWashington National Cathedral.  It will include an interfaith service honoringthose whose lives were lost to gunfire, special prayers for their families, and training sessions to help community leaders implement strategies to reduce gun violence.

 

The Public Policy Team encourages MCC congregations to take Faiths United’s Pledge Against Gun Violence and to sign up to host a local gun violence prevention event during this special weekend.

 

To aid you in these and other efforts, Faiths United is providing the following resources:

Through faith, we find the inspiration to be the blessed peacemakers the world so desperately needs.

Continue The Momentum For Environmental Justice

World leaders are gathering again to develop next steps in addressing the global climate change crisis.  Earlier this year, Rev. Elder Dr. Nancy Wilson, Presiding Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches, helped lead a diverse coalition of faith groups participating in the People’s Climate March. The march called on world leaders gathered for the UN Summit on Climate Change to take an aggressive stand against air pollution. These leaders will assemble again in Lima, Peru (1-12 December 2014) for the Framework Convention on Climate Change. As part of the 20th Convening of the Parties, they will identify the broad areas of international agreement around carbon emmissions caps, financial support for clean energy production, and workforce development for “green” economies.

Faith groups will be present to ensure they produce a framework that reflects our core values of justice, broad enviornmental stewardship, jobs for all, protection for the vulnerable, and relief from poverty.  We must be bold.

Because of the work and advocacy of activists the world over, Global leaders ARE LISTENING.  This week, China and the United States of America, two of the world’s largest air polluters, announced a new program to reduce carbon emissions over the next twenty years.  We must keep up the pressure so that these nations fully implement the plan and that other nations join in the effort.

Here are some actions you can take, wherever you live in the world, to maintain the momentum leading up to the Lima conference:

  • Contact your national government’s foreign ministry or (for expatriates) your local embassy and demand that leaders issue legally binding solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide meaningful support for poor and vulnerable communities.
  • Submit a personal pledge of sustainability and share it with Creation Justice Ministries on Facebook and Twitter and share your reflections every day during the meeting in Lima (1-12 December 2014), Tag @ourvoices2015 and use the hashtag #climatechorus
  • If you reside in the USA, sign Creation Justice Ministries’ petition to President Obama and the Congress and send a letter telling the Environmental Protection Agency to move forward with its Clean Power Plan.

Reflecting our sacred duty to exercise stewardship over all of God’s creation, MCC stands in solidarity with environmental justice advocates around the world.

Statement: World AIDS Day

WAD2014

One year ago, we marked the 25th Anniversary of World AIDS Day. Who among us is better off? PReP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) protocols are becoming more widely available each month. Activists and advocates the world over have endorsed this approach as a major milestone toward ending the HIV epidemic. Earlier this year, MCC issued a statement applauding the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for its approval of PReP. We knew that it was not the cure all for which we have prayed for decades. Combined with access to the basic necessities of life (food, clothing, shelter, and systems of love and support), PRep can and has helped many. But looking back over the past year, we remain challenged by the fact that, throughout the world, the faces of AIDS remain stubbornly brown, stubbornly poor, and alarmingly female and MSM (men who have sex with men). Scripture tells us that Jesus saw himself in those around him, particularly those in need {Matthew 25}. We must, too. They are us, and we are them. Medical advances continue, but they remain out of reach for far too many.

 

As a movement that is concerned with the holy integration of our sexuality and our spirituality, MCC holds to a positive spirituality concerning all bodies.  Positive Spirituality is a spirituality that sees our sexuality as a part of our wholeness. Living into MCC’s core values of Inclusion, Community, Spiritual Transformation, and Social Action means that no one can be left beyond the reach of our prayers, our loving embrace, and our activism.

 

We are called to do hard work. Loving those whom they say are unlovable. Touching the untouchable. Defending those who are defenseless. Medicine alone is not the answer. Global systems of domination and exploitation rob people with HIV from meaningful access to cutting edge anti-retroviral medications. They withhold housing, shelter, employment, family, love, and spiritual companionship. There is only one fight: OUR fight. The late United States Senator Paul Wellstone famously said, “We all do better when we ALL do better.” MCC, we can continue to provide global leadership so that we ALL do better, everyone, everywhere.

 

Perhaps more than any other global religious movement, Metropolitan Community Churches knows that Faith Is Greater Than AIDS (Faith > AIDS). The first International AIDS Vigil of Prayer was held at MCC San Diego (USA) in 1986. This later evolved into World AIDS Day.

 

We invite you to join MCC worshipping bodies around the globe and take the following actions:

  • Take pictures of your Advent-themed worship space, with members and congregational leaders wearing AIDS ribbons and/or red attire, and post them on Facebook under the Ending HIV/AIDS One Prayer at a Time group between now and 1 December.
  • Visit MCC’s World AIDS Day page for resources to help with worship this Sunday, including litanies, prayers.
  • Include a specially-dedicated prayer around the theme of “Ending HIV/AIDS One Prayer At A Time.”
  • Contact a local HIV/AIDS service organization to start or expand use of your worship site as a testing location (global locator site).
  • Know Your Status, and help others become more comfortable in knowing their status.
  • Contact your local, state/provincial, and national government leaders and urge them to take action to end the criminalization of HIV.

 

We are blessed to have so many other faith traditions join this work to ensure that all HIV+ persons have resources, medical care, housing, food, clothing, and family support. More will never be enough until HIV is eradicated. This work is not done.

 

This statement is a collaboration between the Public Policy Team of MCC, the Global Justice Institute, and the HIV/AIDS Advisory Council of MCC.

Earlham School of Religion – half-time teaching faculty appointment in Theological Studies

POSITIONS AT ESR

The Earlham School of Religion (ESR) seeks candidates for a half-time teaching faculty appointment in Theological Studies to begin July 1, 2015. Half-time constitutes teaching 3 courses per academic year. This will be a one-year contract, renewable annually contingent upon funding. Relocation to Richmond, Indiana is optional. While no committee work is expected, the candidate would be expected to regularly participate in faculty meetings, either in person or electronically and to provide academic advising to students. Courses would be a combination of online, 2-week intensives, or residential semester courses.

Qualified candidates will have a doctoral degree in Christian theological studies with an expertise in the area of Quaker theology. Candidates must also be in conversation with contemporary trends, such as emergent church, “unaffiliated” spiritualties, and/or other areas where the Quaker witness intersects with contemporary society. Candidates would be expected to contribute to the required courses of Theological Studies currently in the curriculum: Introduction to Theological Reflection, Contextual Theology (generally in conjunction with a 2-week trip to a foreign or domestic site), Constructive Theology, Ethics, and Interfaith Dialogue.

Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated teaching ability, including the application of emerging educational technologies through online and hybrid courses.

ESR is a seminary of the Religious Society of Friends, though over a third of the students are other than Quaker. ESR has about 100 students and is part of Earlham, sharing its campus with Earlham College, a respected liberal arts college of about 1200 students. ESR is also in partnership with Bethany Theological Seminary, a seminary of similar size, which serves the Church of the Brethren, another historic peace church.

Qualified candidates from the Religious Society of Friends, women, and minorities are especially invited to apply. A cover letter explaining interest in the position, vita, and the names of three references may be sent no later than December 31, 2014 to:

“Queeriando” Las Teologias

El Instituto “Darlene Garner” para la Formación del Liderazgo Iberoamericano de las Iglesias de la Comunidad Metropolitana y el Equipo de Teologías organiza un ciclo de seminarios en línea para 2014 en memoria de la teóloga argentina Marcella Althaus-Reid.

La serie de conferencias en línea “Marcella Althaus-Reid”, será un encuentro virtual con  teólogxs con propuestas teológicas con una  hermenéutica intertextual y de desplazamiento que podrían ayudarnos a  mirar los discursos de autoridad de las tradiciones cristianas de las perspectivas  de género y desde los cuerpos como espacios para el pensamiento teológico y las prácticas pastorales.

Serán un total de siete seminarios en línea “queer(endo)” nuestros discursos de Dios, que incluirá: teologías, estudios bíblicos y teología práctica. Utilizando el sistema de conferencia en línea lxs participantes podrán tener acceso a una conferencia en vivo o posteriormente tener acceso a la grabación. Las conferencias se ofrecerán en español, portugués e inglés, los documentos podrán consultarse en línea en tres idiomas: Español, Inglés y Portugués.


Marcella-Althaus-Reid

“El paradigma es un paradigma indecente, porque desnuda y revela sexualidad y economía al mismo tiempo. Para conocer nuestra sexualidad no sólo necesitamos una teología indecente que pueda alcanzar al núcleo de las construcciones teológicas, en la medida que éstas hunden sus raíces en las sexuales, también la necesitamos porque las verdades teológicas son moneda dispensada y adquirida en mercados económicos teológicos”  Teología Indecente (2005: 34).

Teología Indecente
