2014 Hispanic American Month

Hispanic Heritage Month Banner

The Office of Emerging Ministries is charged with edifying our congregations, spiritual communities and new works into inclusive communities. Towards that effort, one of my responsibilities is to provide our movement with resources and information regarding diverse non-dominant populations who are threads in the fabric of MCC. It is my belief that the more we know about other peoples and cultures, the less we fear them.Rev. Alejandro Escoto, Ministro para la Comunidad de Habla Hispana, La Iglesia Fundadora de la Comunidad Metropolitana Los Angeles, Minister of Spanish Speaking Ministries, Founder’s MCC,

  1. 9-Alejandro-Escoto1[1]When did you recognize your cultural heritage and sexual orientation? Feel free to share what that means/meant to you and how it influenced your growing up. I was raised in a culturally adherent and religious Mexican household and as such, there were clear distinctions between how men and women were to behave within the social and religious constructs. I did however, become aware of my sexual orientation at around the age of 5, although I did not have a full grasp or understanding of who I was until many years later. Part of the issues in respect to my sexuality was that being the first born male of my family, I had several social and cultural expectations that I had to abide by, which in defying them, went against the very core of my family. Additionally, I had no real positive gay role models that I could lean on so when I came out of the “closet” during High School, I battled with much confusion about who I was in within the context of family, culture and religion. The result was I came to believe that God has made a mistake with me and that I was a sin.
  2. When did you find MCC? Please feel free to share your introduction story to MCC. I attended MCC for the first time 1983 – I was 19 years old. JImmi “Papa” Irving was the individual who introduced to MCC. I still recall the marquis that read, “Jesus died for your sins, not your sexuality” – powerful then and I believe just as powerful now. Upon entering MCC, I felt overwhelmed and for many months, if not years, I cried, asking myself, “Could this be real?” “Could God really love me?” When I turned 21, I started to frequent the bars and I encountered yet another internal battle: my spirituality and the world around me that beckoned me – the result was giving in to many addictions. Ultimately, spirituality won over but not after a long arduous battle with myself and the God of my understanding. Additionally, I had to learn to forgive not only myself but also those who, by no fault of their own, had harmed me, because of the their own belief systems.
  3. How have you been able to weave into the fabric of MCC your cultural heritage, if you celebrate same, or how you would like to, if you have not been able to as of yet. Raised within a Mexican Roman Catholic Household, I was familiar with and comfortable with my Mexican culture however, I did stray from such beliefs as part of my growing pains. As I began to become more involved with MCC and subsequently, ICM, I started to honor my cultural heritage by becoming the worship leader and eventually, the Pastsor of the Spanish speaking service at Founders MCC Los Angeles – Iglesia Fundadora Metropolitana de la Comunidad Los Angeles. In honoring and celebrating my Mexican/Hispanic heritage, I honor such religious feasts such as “Day of the Dead” and “All Saints Day” in November, “Our Lady of Guadalupe” in December. And because ICM Fundadora Los Angeles is comprised of a variety of Hispanics from different parts of iberoamerica, we also also honor “El Cristo Negro de Esquipulas” (Guatemala) in January and “El Señor de los Milagros” (Peru) in October, to name a few.When asked why do I celebrate such religious feasts, I always respond by noting that as LGBT Hispanics, Our Blessed Mother was taken away from us and in honoring her feast day, we reclaim her as our Spiritual Mother. Additionally, she knows were are gay and like her son, she accepts us with open arms. In similar manner, when she accompanied her son to his cross, she also accompanies us while we die to old beliefs and are reborn in a spirit of acceptance, forgiveness and love. Such celebrations allow the cultural richness of Hispanic diversity to be expressed not only through color but also language and music.
  4. Is there a piece of poetry, prose, pictures, music that you would like to share with MCC that worship communities may incorporate into the life of their worship? If so, please provide it for the resource by attaching it or sending a link to it or where I can obtain it. La Iglesia Fundadora de la Comunidad Metropolitana Los Angeles is broadcast weekly live at 130pm on Sundays via www.mccla.org ; I invite pastors and lay leaders who are thinking about reaching out to or expanding to the Hispanic Community to watch our services. Our service is an example of what can happen at any MCC that is seeking broaden it’s call.
  5. Are there any resources you recommend that MCC read/listen to, etc. in order to broaden our cultural understanding of your cultural heritage? The Office of Emerging Ministries has a wealth of resources as does La Iglesia Fundadora de la Comunidad Metropolitana Los Angeles. Feel free to email me revalejandroescoto@mccchurch.net for information.

Celebración de la Cultura

Educators tell us that they strive to immerse their students in meaningful learning experiences that live well beyond knowledge of the subject. Hispanic Heritage Month provides plenty of meaningful opportunities to connect learning to the world we live in. Since 1968, Americans have annually celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15, though originally only for a week (until 1988). Significantly, this period coincides with Independence days for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile, as well as Columbus Day. This celebration recognizes the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens who come from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

For inspiration, check out Latino Americans, a new three-part, six-hour documentary series on PBS, a first-of-its-kind to chronicle the rich and complex history of Latin Americans and their role shaping the United States over the last 500 years. Consider perusing the federal website for teachers offering a collection of related primary sources, lesson plans, research aids, and student activities from federal agencies. Smithsonian Education also hosts a dedicated webpage for Hispanic Heritage Month, including resources for teachers.

Carnival Celebrations

Students are introduced to the culture of Puerto Rico in this look at the annual Carnival—or, more specifically, at the masks worn by the revelers. This set of four lessons is divided into grades K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12. The youngest students build their vocabulary by describing the masks. Older students do research on similar Carnival celebrations around the U.S.

To celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, which starts on Sept. 15 and ends on Oct. 15, we’ve gathered together some of our favorite articles and resources in The Times that celebrate the contributions and cultures of Hispanic-Americans.
In curating our selection, we tried to emphasize both the famous alongside the not-so-famous. We were excited when we discovered inspiring neighborhood stories as much as coverage of nationally recognized leaders. So, below you will find both Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s seminal lecture “A Latina Judge’s Voice” and a video about what it means to be Garifuna in the United States.
Our intention is to help show, in ways large and small, how Hispanic-Americans have helped shape the United States and make it into the diverse and dynamic nation it is today.

Ways to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

book listphoto credit beck center

1. Learn about famous Hispanic or Latino Americans. Research notable figures, past and present, and write short biographies or create visual presentations about their accomplishments, like a Glog. For inspiration, here is a short list of some important people covered in Times reporting:

Or for fun, students can challenge themselves with our Hispanic Heritage Crossword.

2. Explore cuisine or, better yet, prepare a meal. Check out one or more of the following New York Times sources to discover how Hispanic-Americans are helping to redefine what meals look like in the United States. You may even be inspired to plan and serve food together as a class.

3. Examine the diversity of Hispanic identity. What does it mean to be Hispanic? When it comes to identity, how do culture, ethnicity and race intersect? How are Hispanics portrayed and perceived in mass media? You might also reflect on your own heritage or examine why ethnic and racial categories, like Hispanic, are rejected by some. Below is a video about Garifunas, who are part African, part Caribbean and part Central American.

4. Travel to Latin America or your local Latino neighborhood. Research and create a travel itinerary that focuses on Hispanic heritage sites in your local community or elsewhere. Use New York Times Travel sources, Latin America Through a Lens and Miami: Hispanic Heritage Tour as your inspiration.

5. See Hispanic-American art. Watch the slide show from the Museo del Barrio’s “Testimonios: 100 Years of Popular Expression” exhibit or “Quiet Riot | The Art of Wilfredo Prieto.” Or read Rescuing the Stories Behind Latino Art, an article about a Houston museum’s creation of a digital archive to preserve the stories behind Latin American and Latino art. Or, get involved in the debate about whether there should be a National Latino Museum on the National Mall.

6. Read literature by Hispanic-American writers. As a class, in book groups or independently, students can read works by Latino authors, like Isabel Allende, Sandra Cisneros and Oscar Hijuelos. In response to the literature, students can write their own book reviews, modeled after Times reviews, like this recent review of Junot Diaz’s latest short story collection, “This Is How You Lose Her.”

celebrate

7. Listen to Latin music. Play music from South America, Central America and the Caribbean, and have students listen closely to the sounds they hear. Ask students, what emotions does the music evoke? How would they describe the rhythm, instruments and vocals? Then, follow with a discussion about how Latin music is influencing music all across the United States. Some related Times resources that can help enrich the discussion are:

8. View and discuss photography about the experience of Hispanic-Americans. Learn how one artist uses his work to explore Puerto Rican cultural identity. Or, view “Life on Both Sides of the Border,” a series of photographs about life for Mexicans on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border, by Joseph Rodriguez.

9. Study how Latinos are reshaping the political landscape. Read any combination of the following New York Times resources and write expository essays on the shifting electorate and role of Latino voters.

for teachers

10. Or, follow your own interests. Have students learn more about the role of Hispanic-Americans using any of the resources above, Times Topics on Hispanic Americans or from additional subject areas below:

Fashion

Television

The MCC Branding Page

Page under development

Transforming Ourselves As We Transform The World

The MCC Branding Page

“Branding” refers to the development of a strategic platform from which all communications speak with one, unique voice, thereby promoting an understanding of the institutional purpose and differentiating the brand in an attractive, meaningful, and sustainable way.

MCC’s inquisitive theology and radical hospitality give the denomination and our churches the platform — with Jesus as our example — to love ourselves and others unconditionally and to live out the prophetic call for social justice globally. Thus, we are transforming ourselves as we transform the world.

This page and the materials included are intended to help our churches tap into the MCC brand through communication assets. The materials are designed for churches to trumpet the essence of MCC while maintaining their individual identities. As Rev. Elder Dr. Nancy Wilson often reminds us, we are stronger together!

JOIN WORLD DAY OF ACTION AGAINST JAMAICA’S ANTI-BUGGERY LAW

WEDNESDAY 6 AUGUST 2014

 

MCC is joining with human rights activists, LGBT Jamaicans, and people of faith from around the world for a day of global protest on Wednesday, 6 August 2014, in opposition to Jamaica’s Anti-Buggery Law.  The law has provided legal cover for extreme anti-LGBT violence throughout the country.  The anti-LGBT movement in Jamaica has been highly effective in spreading hateful propaganda about the community.  MCC joins activists from around the world in calling for a coordinated, global response in solidarity with LGBT people on the ground.

6 August is Jamaica’s Independence Day, and we invite you to join us in calling for an end to violence and the legal system that enables it. 

 

10562982_473357036137287_4259168785229981968_nJamaican Consulate Protests:

 

  • Jamaican Consulate/High Commission in 303 Eglinton Avenue East, London, Toronto, Canada 12 noon Eastern Standard Time (4pm GMT)
  • Jamaican Consulate, 767 Third Avenue New York, NY USA.  12 noon Eastern Standard Time (4pm GMT)
  • Jamaican High Commission, 1 Prince Consort Road, London, England UK, 5pm BST (4pm GMT)

 

Our Day of Action will send a powerful message that the British-era colonial law has no place in any modern society.  Dwayne Brown, the founder of Jamaica Anti-Homophobia Stand, said, “For too long, the government of Jamaica has failed to take decisive action to address the ongoing crisis of anti-LGBT violence.  One important step is immediately repealing the buggery law, which has been used in various ways to terrorize the LGBT community.”   It will further support the legal challenges taking place in the Jamaican judicial system to eliminate the anti-buggery law, an effort led by MCC’s Maurice Tomlinson.

 

 

Here’s what you can do to join the movement:

  • Work with your church and local partners to stage a demonstration or activity, ideally at the same time as the consulate protests in Canada, USA, and UK.  Virtual and in-person are equally encouraged. 
  • Help gather signatures for the Petition Calling for the Repeal of the Anti-Buggery Laws. Download the petition HERE and email the completed ones (with signatures) to Jason Latty care of MCCNY.  jasonlatty@outlook.com
  • Follow the Protest’s Facebook page and stay update about local actions around the world.
  • Tweet #JamaicaRepealBuggeryLaw in support.

MCC Moderator to Witness Signing of Presidential Executive Orders with NO Exemptions

“We Dare Not Confuse Sincere Prejudice with Sincere Religion”

MCC global moderator to witness signing of presidential executive orders with NO added exemptions

The Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson is the Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC), which has ministries in over 40 countries.  Dr. Wilson was part of the first LGBT faith delegation to meet with U.S. White House staff in 1979, and she served as a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

The Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson has been invited to the White House to witness President Barack Obama sign two executive orders. The first will add sexual orientation and gender identity to the 1965 Lyndon Johnson executive order which banned discrimination based on race, religion, gender, or nationality in hiring by federal contractors. The second order adds gender identity to the list of protected classes of federal workers and was first signed by President Richard Nixon, who added disability and age. President Clinton added sexual orientation, and President Obama adds gender identity.

“We are thrilled that President Obama will sign executive orders to include sexual orientation and gender identity within Federal policies of non-discrimination. It is even more historic because no sweeping religious exemptions sponsored by conservatives will be added,” said the Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson, global moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC).

 “Using religious exemptions as a smokescreen for discrimination is the kind of persecution the First Amendment to the Constitution helps us to avoid,” said Dr. Wilson. “Everyone loves religious liberty, but we dare not confuse sincere prejudice with sincere religion. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people know that exemption from the law is a dangerous by-product of religious bigotry, not religious liberty.”

“MCC stands with all people of good will to support President Obama in this historic action,” said Dr. Wilson. “It is a deep honor to represent Metropolitan Community Churches at the signing event. While these executive orders will add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes for federal contractors and workers, we will not rest until Congress passes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) with no religious exemptions so all Americans will be hired and fired based on their work and integrity rather than their gender identity or whom they love.”

 “We know that conservatives will continue to market their prejudices under the guise of religious freedom, but we will not let their brand of judgmental Christianity be the only voice of faithful Christians that the public hears. We are LGBT and straight people of faith together who know that we are created in the image of God,” said Dr. Wilson. “We categorically reject the disastrous religious dogma that God wants Christians to hate some people.”

Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches Calls for Moment of Prayer In Face of Tragedies and Violence

17 July 2014 -­‐-­‐-­‐ Today, as Israel and Hamas took a brief recess from their 10 -­‐day war, only to have that lull in fighting marred by the deaths of 4 Gaza children hit by missiles while playing on the beach near their homes; while violence claimed the lives of innocent civilians from the airport of Kabul to the streets of places like Syria and Iran, Iraq and Pakistan, someone shot an airplane out of the sky over Donetsk in the Ukraine, an already war-­‐ravaged area of the globe. Fields with purple flowers became the unintended resting place of 295 people on their way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The flight manifest has yet to be released, but we know from our friends around the world that at least 5 AIDS activists on their way from points in Europe to the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne were among those lost.

At times like this, our hearts are broken for the families and friends, the allies and co -­‐workers of all those lost to violence and the senseless tragedies it produces. While many on the airwaves debate who is responsible for the tragedies, I am drawn to the example of Jesus, who when pressed by the crowds of unrelenting needs around him for relief and healing and peace, would go off to a lonely place to pray.

And so, I ask all MCCers and people of faith to join me in prayer now.

O God,
We give you thanks for the gift of life,
and the chance you give to all of us
to live each day with a heart for compassion and care
and a spirit attuned to peace.
We mourn all our brothers and sisters lost
to violence and needless violence and tragedy today,
especially those on Malaysia Airlines flight 17
and those 4 little boys on the beach in Gaza Cit y.
Be with their families and friends left behind,
and help them to find some comfort in knowing that
they are at peace with you, and that
we will all one day be together again.
With a full heart, O God, we pray for
peace on this earth
and goodwill among a ll.
Regardless of our political persuasions or belief systems,
help us to renounce all violence and to seek to live
in a way that promotes the wellbeing of all your children.
Give us all the courage to follow in the footsteps of Jesus the Christ,
Prince of Peace, in whose name we pray. +Amen

The Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson, Moderator
Metropolitan Community Churches

From The Moderator

MISSION

 

Metropolitan Community Churches proclaims and practices a spirituality that is anchored in the liberating Gospel of Jesus Christ and confronts the issues of our volatile, uncertain, and complex world.

We are called to develop and equip leaders, congregations, and ministries that foster spiritual growth, do the work of justice, act with compassion, and integrate sexuality and spirituality.

We will do this through offering high-value training, local church support and resourcing, cutting edge theological exploration, and expanding partnerships.


 

VISION

Metropolitan Community
Churches is compelled

by an unfinished calling
and a prophetic destiny.

We are a global movement
of spiritually and sexually
diverse people

who are fully awake
to God’s enduring love.

Following the example
of Jesus and empowered
by the Spirit,
we seek to build
leading-edge
church communities
that demand, proclaim,
and do justice in the world.

We Are Stronger Together

As marriage equality is making unprecedented strides, and human rights challenges are growing every day, we know that MCC’s message of the unconditional love of God and our life-giving ministry is needed more than ever.

Building on our record-breaking global General Conference in Chicago last year, we are laser-focused on efforts to amplify our impact globally and ensure that our spiritual message of hope and justice lives on in our diverse people and communities.

Some of our investments this year include:

• Research and strategic planning for a powerful, new virtual presence for MCC around the world in partnership with our churches.

• Equipping and training leaders for a new era in church starts globally,  including opportunities in the U.S. and Hispanic North America.

• Implementing an Online Learning Center for MCC congregations and leaders worldwide.

• Training Clergy Wellness coaches to support our clergy and their families.

• Ramping up our work through the Global Justice Institute to support activists and victims of violence and discrimination.

• Bringing our Lay Leadership Training program (LEAD: Laity Empowered for Active Discipleship) to the Philippines and other new locations.

But what matters are the stories of redemption
and hope that are the continuous narrative
of MCC since our founding days.

We recently held our first REVM–a clergy retreat for those becoming MCC clergy–in Estonia. The event served people from all over Eastern Europe and Russia, and Rev. Elder Mona West tells the story of a young man from Russia. “[He] was so overwhelmed by the experience of consecrating communion for the first time as a lay person and a gay man . . . that he started crying on the plane ride home, hoping people near him did not think him crazy.”

People are paying an incredible price for their activism and their spiritual leadership, and MCC is there, encouraging, supporting, and equipping leaders for the present and future.

MCC New York, where our Global Justice Institute is housed, happily reported that a Ugandan refugee the church had been helping got his work permit, and two young men who had to flee from Jamaica were granted asylum!
REVMEstonia
On May 20th, Pennsylvania became the 19th state in the U.S. to recognize marriage equality for same sex couples. Rev. Janice Bowker, pastor of Imago Dei MCC, married Jim, age 76, and Chuck, age 82, who have been together for 35 years, in a small ceremony after church on May 25th, among the first in their state to take advantage of this law.
Rev. Gordon McCoy, of Chicago, tells of performing the first same sex wedding in a nursing home in Cook County, Illinois–with tears of joy!I am so proud of the resilience and perseverance of MCC members, leaders, and churches through all the ups and downs of a challenging global economy.  You have proven over and over to me that the power of the grace of God is always being renewed in us.In June, I had the honor to participate in the World Pride Human Rights Conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, reaching out to activists around the world, with Rev. Dr. Brent Hawkes, to share our 21st Century Gospel of a Jesus who is with us as we seek justice and offer radical love and inclusion.

REVM IN ESTONIA

Rev. Elder Mona West, PhD., Director of MCC’s Office of Formation and Leadership Development, facilitated the REVM Program (Readiness for Entering Vocational Ministry) in Estonia in May 2014. In addition, Rev. West said this program became a powerful connection for activists and spiritual leaders. Some in the photo protected their identity by facing away from the camera because their safety would be threatened. MCC Staff include Florin Buhuceanu, kneeling front row, far left; Rev. West, standing, middle row right; Rev. Jim Mulcahy, back row, far right.

There are four things you can do today to help us move forward in faith together–any one of which would bless me and those who are still needing love, justice, and community today:

Thank you for helping us change lives and history every day!

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Nancy Wilson Signature
