ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service — Auckland, New Zealand] Young New Zealanders challenged the Anglican Consultative Council before the members even set foot in the doors of the Telstra Event Center Oct. 27 (local time) when three young Maori Anglican men, hefting taiahas (spears), performed a series of stances, shouts and facial gestures meant to determine if the newcomers had come with ill intent.Kahutia Maxwell, center, prepares to lay down a leafy branch in front of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams to test his reaction during the wero (challenge) part of the powhiri to welcome the Anglican Consultative Council to Auckland. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergAs part of the wero (challenge), Kahutia Maxwell, one of the three, laid down a leafy branch in the space between him and his fellows, and the assembled council members. When Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams solemnly picked up the branch, it was clear that the council meant no harm so Maxwell, along with Cyprus Morunga and Pouoterangi Ngargopo, escorted the council members into the arena.Once inside, the council was treated to karanga, a form of female oratory which uses imagery and expression to welcome visitors to the powhiri.During the whaikorero (formal speech making) that followed the council heard calls of welcome and different challenges from the archbishops who led the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia’s three tikangas, which are groupings based on ethnicities. Auckland Mayor Len Brown was also part of the whaikorero.A waiata, or song, was sung after each whaikorero by the group the speaker represented. In Brown’s case, he led his own waiata, singing “How Great Thou Art” in Maori.Episcopal Church members of the Anglican Consultative Council Josephine Hicks (behind sign bearer) Diocese of Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas and the Rev.

ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergThe powhiri was the opening event in the ACC’s 15th meeting which is taking place in Auckland Oct. 27-Nov. 7.Archbishop David Moxon of the Tikanga Pakeha, which includes the seven dioceses in Aotearoa New Zealand, told the council that all the issues it will discuss during its meeting are issues of mission for Anglicans in New Zealand. He urged them to remember that “no one here can say to anybody else: ‘I do not need you.’”“All of us here together can say no one of us has got it all together, but together each one of us can have it all,” he said.Archbishop Winston Halapua of the Tikanga Pasefika, which includes the Diocese of Polynesia, said that the ACC is “like the Pentecost day.”“Before you read about the whole deliberation and the outcome, have a pause and look at the colorfulness of the day of the Pentecost of the Anglican Communion,” he said. “Give a big applause to welcome them, and their wisdom and their languages. They bring with them their contexts.”Auckland Mayor Brown said that Anglicans were critical to the founding of both Auckland and New Zealand, calling them “the builders of the heart of our nation.” He told the council that the Anglican Communion can remain relevant in the 21st century as long as it never loses that “founding passion.”“Be at the heart of the community,” he urged, reciting stories of a series of Anglicans in Auckland whose ministry is “at the hard end of need.”“Never forget that, promote it and see that as your spirit taking you forward,” Brown added.“Love your people, give us guidance as we build this beautiful city and nation, and a wonderful and peaceful and tolerant globe together,” he said, noting that New Zealand “sits in the crossroads of bold cultural change” as it tries to blend vastly different ethnic groups.In accepting the community’s welcome, Williams asked for prayers “for a Pentecostal experience, that divided tongues of fire will touch us all in the days ahead, that we shall learn to listen to one another’s languages and experiences and insights with all the enthusiasm and eagerness with which we would listen to God’s own word.”Williams in turn promised that the council would pray that the “experiments” of the country of Aotearoa New Zealand and the Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia “will be marks and signs of work of the Holy Spirit in the world today and be signs of hope for a world in which by God’s purpose and by God’s promise one of these days all the islands will rise and sing.”A young Anglican student poses a question as part of a question-and-answer forum during the powhiri. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergAfter the challenges laid down by the province’s leaders and the city’s political leader, the challenging welcome intensified when Williams, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Anglican Church of Southern Africa Archbishop Thabo Makgoba faced questions during the powhiri about God, theology and the nature of faith posed to them by Anglican students from elementary to high school. The questions ranged from whether it was fun to be a bishop, to what kind of shoes God would wear if God wore shoes, to “How can you be so sure that God exists?” The students also asked the three to speak about women priests and bishops, and same-gender marriage.Jefferts Schori told Sadie Summit, who asked what shoes God might wear, that God would wear dancing shoes because God delights in creation. Makgoba chose hunter boots because God walks with us and hunter boots would “enable us to go where we’d rather not go.” Williams said God would wear the kind of shoes that would be easy to take off and give away when God met someone who needed shoes.On a more serious topic, Williams agreed with his two companions that while “we rightly celebrate the way in which women’s ordained ministry has become part of the life of so many bits of the Anglican Communion,” all of society must pay attention to the larger issue of the “dignity and security of women.”The question, he said, of “whether we live in a society that degrades women, a society that doesn’t allow women to be safe, a society which turns its face away from violence against women” is going to be “very much on our agenda during the weeks ahead.”Student Corey Anderson, noting that a same-gender marriage bill is before the New Zealand Parliament, asked what the Anglican church has to say on the subject.“The short answer is that the Anglican church has quite a lot to say about this issue but, it’s not always the same thing,” Williams replied.“For the vast majority of Anglicans in the world the idea of same-sex marriage is not one they can come to terms with,” he continued. “Even those who want to say that some kind of recognized public partnership for people of the same sex is a good thing, even they are not too sure whether calling it marriage is right if ‘marriage’ is something with all the symbolic and theological focus that it’s had in the Bible and in history.”Williams said the disagreements must focus people on “another set of very delicate and difficult issues” around the fact that Christians “have been rejecting and even violent towards people with same-sex attraction and we have a lot of repenting to do there.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori responds to a question from a student during the powhiri staged by New Zealand Anglicans to welcome the Anglican Consultative Council to Auckland. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergJefferts Schori acknowledged “many people have found it difficult to hear what the Episcopal Church has said about these issues through its General Convention.”“Our understanding as a whole church is that people with same-sex attraction seek the same ability in life to live in a covenanted relationship with another person whom they love, that that can be a good thing, that human beings were not created to live alone – that is what Genesis says – and that therefore the church’s task is to help all human beings live in holy relationships that can show the love of God to a world much in need of it,” she said.The Episcopal Church has been having this conversation for 50 years, Jefferts Schori said, “and we do not all agree.”“Where we differ is what that [covenanted relationship] looks like,” the presiding bishop said, “and that’s where the conversation is having its most creative possibility. I doubt that we will ever all agree about what that covenanted or holy relationship will look like and what the boundaries are but, if we are unable to have the conversation, we are going to do violence to human beings who need not to live alone.”Calling the question “a pastoral matter,” Makgoba said there is pain on all sides of the issue, adding “what is important is to respect the dignity of each person as created in God.”“As one of my predecessors once said about this: ‘the Holy Spirit is not yet finished with us on this matter,’” he noted.It was those kinds of questions that prompted all three to acknowledge in answer to other questions that it is not always fun to be a bishop or the leader of a church.“It is unavoidable to take some decisions in the name of the whole church and you know that they are going to hurt people very badly and you just have to be aware of the need to stay with the people that it hurts, and do the best you can,” Williams said, adding that that reality about decision-making is not limited to the church and its bishops.Asked whether it is fun being the leader of the Anglican Communion, Williams replied, “It depends which day of the week you ask me.”He went on to make a distinction between something being fun versus being joyful.“And when I thank God for calling me to this job, which I do sometimes – sometimes through gritted teeth – I say thank you for the joy, the unexpected joy, even when it’s not exactly fun,” he said.A podcast of the question-and-answer session is here.ACC backgroundThe ACC is one of the four instruments of communion, the others being the archbishop of Canterbury (who serves as president of the ACC), the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops, and the Primates Meeting.Formed in 1969, the ACC includes clergy and lay people, as well as bishops, among its delegates. The membership includes from one to three persons from each of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, depending on the numerical size of each province. Where there are three members, there is a bishop, a priest and a lay person. Where fewer members are appointed, preference is given to lay membership. The ACC’s constitution is here. The council generally meets every three or four years.The Episcopal Church is represented by Josephine Hicks of North Carolina; the Rev. Gay Jennings of Ohio; and Bishop Ian Douglas of Connecticut.Jefferts Schori is attending the meeting in her role as a member of the Anglican Communion Standing Committee, which met here prior to the start of the ACC meeting. Douglas is also a member of the Standing Committee.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

By following the guidance of ABC Rowan Williams:”….that we shall learn to listen to one another’s languages and experiences and insights with all the enthusiasm and eagerness with which we would listen to God’s own word.”Surely, the love we teach can sustain our unity to successfully pass through these transitions.Thus, it is a joyous experience to be a part of the AC. Being a recently confirmed in the Episcopal Church; I have attempted to catch up with the vast literature of the AC churches and British history. In so doing I have found both blessing and burden we must carry in our faithfulness to the Christianity of our Covenant.

Prior to the meeting, several residents from the Mount Plymouth area had expressed an interest in keeping this interchange open. Before going into the details of what was discussed at the Board meeting, it is necessary to discuss the history of the parkway because it goes back to 2004 and many people that have moved to the area may not be familiar with the background of this project.The Wekiva Basin, consisting of the Wekiva River, the St. Johns River and their tributaries along with associated lands in the Central Florida region, is part of a vast wildlife corridor that connects Northwest Orange County with the Osceola National Forest. This region of Florida has experienced tremendous growth in the last 20 years resulting in increasing transportation demands and development pressure on lands within the Wekiva Basin.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe desire to balance the transportation needs associated with projected growth and protection of the Wekiva Basin prompted Governor Jeb Bush to create the “Wekiva Basin Area Task Force” on September 26, 2002. The Task Force was charged with evaluating and making recommendations on the most appropriate location for a highway route connecting State Road 429 to Interstate 4 while providing the greatest protection to the Wekiva Basin. In addition, the Task Force was asked to evaluate and recommend a transportation plan that considered the potential expansion of roads and corridors within the Wekiva Basin to address, among other issues, the following: Land acquisition; springshed protection; innovative road design; protection of rural character; protection of habitat; utilization of financial resources; and the adequacy of local governments relating to transportation corridors.Legislation to implement the Task Force’s recommendations was considered during the 2003 Legislative Session, but did not pass.During its 2004 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 1214 relating to the Wekiva Parkway and Protection Act. A House Bill (House Bill 849) similar to this bill was sponsored by then House Representative Fred Brummer; the Senate Bill was substituted for the House Bill. This legislation was designed to protect the Wekiva Basin by implementing the recommendations of the Wekiva Basin Task Force. As part of the legislation, it limited the number of interchanges for the parkway to 5 and specified locations from Highway 441 in Apopka to I-4 in Sanford. The one growth center will be located at the Kelly Park exit which is known as Kelly Park Crossings. All other lands in Northwest Orange County will have a minimum of 50% and a maximum of 70% of open space for all new developments outside of the Kelly Park interchange. In addition to the parkway specifications, the legislation addressed water quality as well as certain zoning restrictions for development in the basin area. Residents can access Senate Bill 1214 via the following link: http://archive.flsenate.gov/cgi-bin/view_page.pl?Tab=session&Submenu=1&FT=D&File=sb1214er.html&Directory=session/2004/Senate/bills/billtext/html/.Additional legislation, the 2016 Springs and Aquifer Protection Act (Senate Bill 552), was passed and has added to what local stakeholders must comply with for the protection of Rock Springs and Wekiva Springs. Residents can access the Act via the following link: https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2016/552/BillText/er/HTML.As construction got underway for the parkway, the Florida Department of Transportation received a waiver to construct a temporary interchange at Mount Plymouth to help traffic flow as the parkway was built. Otherwise, it would have a dead-end segment. This temporary interchange opened in 2015 and is slated to close in 2018 once it is no longer needed. Since this interchange was never intended to be permanent, changing course could delay completion of the parkway. To have an interchange in this area would not only mean changing the state law, it would also mean building an entire new interchange at an estimated cost of $15 to $20 million, not including right of way costs. The Orange County Board of County Commissioners expressed a desire not to support a resolution to add an additional interchange on the Wekiva Parkway.In comparison with other municipalities, the City of Apopka had voted unanimously against making the interchange permanent, and Lake County voted unanimously to make the interchange permanent.Residents who wish to view the entire discussion may do so online at http://netapps.ocfl.net/Mod/meetings/1.

Courtesy Keith Smith(BALTIMORE) — As Keith Smith talked about his wife, Jacquelyn Smith, he rattled off a list of characteristics he fell in love with: She was a career woman, a good mother, a church-goer and, most of all, a giving person.Her kindness, he said, is what cost her her life.Now Baltimore police are hunting for an apparent team of panhandlers who preyed on her good nature and stabbed her to death for a few dollars.“She was trying to help someone out,” Keith Smith told ABC News. “I think the reality is, we forget about the times that we’re living in. You may have the best intentions on helping this person, but when you let a person get into your safe zone, you’re actually opening yourself up to whatever this person has intended for you.”‘Help me feed my baby’About 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, Smith was diving his wife and daughter, Shavon Smith, home after they had been out celebrating Shavon’s 28th birthday. At a stop sign in the Johnston Square neighborhood of East Baltimore, Jacquelyn Smith, 54, spotted a woman standing on the side of the road, carrying what looked like a baby wrapped in a blanket and holding a cardboard sign, reading, “Help me feed my baby, God bless.”She asked her husband to pull over and she rolled down the window and handed the woman $10, Keith Smith told ABC News.“It was drizzling, it was cold, wet and my wife, like any normal person, felt sorry for the baby, which turned out not to even be a baby,” he said. “It must have been like a stuffed animal or something wrapped in a blanket. From where we were, it looked like a baby and we thought it was a baby.”Keith Smith said he noticed a man standing next to the panhandling woman. But it never crossed his mind that he and his wife were being set up.“As she was handing her the money, the guy came to say ‘Thank you,’ and the woman was saying ‘God bless you. God bless you,’” Smith recalled. “While we’re looking at her saying ‘God bless you’ and my wife was handing her the money, he came over to the car and said ‘Thank you’ and then he started stabbing my wife and snatched her necklace off and ran.”He said the female panhandler reached into the car, grabbed his wife’s purse and scurried off into the darkness.Search for suspectsWith his wife bleeding profusely from a stab wound to her chest, Smith sped to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where Jacquelyn was pronounced dead.“For most people, the last thing you’re going to think about is that this person is about to take your life for a few dollars,” Keith Smith said.Baltimore interim Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle said during a news conference Monday that detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying the two suspects.He described the female suspect as being in her 20s with medium brown skin, a medium build, about 5 feet tall, and wearing a long brown coat. He said the suspected male accomplice is black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build, a goatee and wearing a black hoodie.“They’re using this ruse as panhandlers to get the attention of their would-be victims,” Tuggle said. “We also want to caution the public about engaging with panhandlers in recognizing the fact not all of them have honest intent. Not all of them are in real need.”‘I want justice’Keith Smith said he and his wife were married for nearly five years. Together they have six children and three grandchildren.Jacquelyn Smith worked as an electrical engineer at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, an Army facility in Aberdeen, Maryland, her husband said. He said he and his wife are members of the Helping Hands Ministries Church in the Baltimore suburb of Churchville, where Jacquelyn’s memorial service is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday.“I don’t want to beat myself up, but I feel somewhat responsible for letting that person get that close to my wife,” Keith Smith said, his voice choking with emotion. “It’s just a lot right now going through my mind. That’s why it’s hard for me to sleep because now I’m trying to see how I could have did things differently, how I could have took another street. I’m just thinking of all kind of ways that my wife would still be here.”He also had a warning to other kindhearted people like his wife, saying, “You’ve got to stay vigilant or you’re going to be sitting in the same seat I’m sitting in.”“I just want justice.

Lindsey Jacobson/ABC News(DELPHI, Ind.) — It’s been more than two years since young Abby Williams and Libby German were found dead in Delphi, Indiana, but investigators believe they’re close to finding their killer.“We are one tip away from success,” Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter told ABC News’ Good Morning America in an interview airing Wednesday.Carter said his team has received more than 42,000 tips since friends Abby, 13, and Libby, 14, went missing in 2017.The girls, both middle schoolers, vanished after going hiking at Delphi Historic Trails in Indiana on Feb. 13, 2017. Their bodies were found the next day about a half mile away from where they had been dropped off.Authorities have not released information about how the girls died, but Carter said he believes the killer is hiding within the close-knit Delphi community. He said someone knows who the killer is but is afraid to come forward.“If somebody knows something, they need to tell us. I think they’re afraid too,” he said. “Somebody knows who that person is.”Police issued a new sketch last month, showing a male suspect thought to be between 18 and 40 years old. Investigators had previously released a different composite sketch that was “based on a previous witness,” according to Carter.“Somebody that commits a horrific crime like this against two little girls probably has shown signs of violence in the past … he didn’t just all of a sudden decide to do this one day,” Carter said.He said it could be a family member, friend or some other person “that knows something happened after that day” and noticed a change in the suspect.Carter said he believes the killer lives in, works in or frequents the Delphi area, but he declined to elaborate on why he believes that.“One day I’ll be able to tell you. I can’t wait for that day,” Carter said. “We are doing everything within our power … and when we run out of tips, we’re going to start over again.”Police arrested an Indiana man in September 2017 that authorities initially said could be related to the killings.Daniel Nations, 31, was taken into custody in Colorado after threatening people near a hiking trail with a hatchet, police said. Investigators later revealed that Nations was not someone “they care a whole lot about” in relation to the murders.Police previously released a photo of a suspect that shows a man wearing blue jeans, a blue coat and a hoodie. Authorities also released audio of a male voice saying the words “down the hill,” with hopes that someone might be able to identify the suspect’s voice.The voice recording was taken from a video found on Libby’s cellphone, police said.Carter said the case keeps him up at night.“We’re going to continue to push and push and push until we get that final piece of information,” he said. “We know significantly more [information], but we’re not going to talk about that because the only other person who knows that is the killer.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
