Nancy Bruyere, a non-stipendiary priest from the Diocese of Keewatin, has been named suicide prevention coordinator for western Canada and the Arctic. Photo: Marites N Sison/Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal] In response to the suicide crisis affecting some native communities in western Canada and in the Arctic, the Anglican Church of Canada’s indigenous ministries department has appointed a new suicide prevention coordinator for that region.The Rev. Nancy Bruyere, a non-stipendiary priest in the Diocese of Keewatin, has been named to the position. Bruyere is associate priest at Christ Church Sagkeeng First Nation in Fort Alexander, and also serves in Little Black River First Nation, Hollow Water First Nation, and Manitgotagan, all in Manitoba.Bruyere said she thought hard before accepting the position. “A lot of people don’t really like talking about it [suicide]…They think it would cause more young people to take their own lives,” she said in an interview with Anglican Journal.However, Bruyere said she realized that she could draw on her own personal experience to help people deal with the issue. Bruyere attempted suicide as a child and then again as a young mother at 21. “I can relate to the feelings of hopelessness, depression, shame,” she said in a biography she gave to the Journal.She grew up in a home “where life was not perfect” and there was “lots of alcohol, fighting, fear and abuse.” This kind of family situation is not uncommon, said Bruyere, particularly in those communities affected by the Indian residential school experience.“A lot of our people who went to residential schools are talking more and more about their experiences, including the lack of love,” said Bruyere. Many grew up feeling afraid and ashamed of their culture, she added. For instance, they were taught in schools that their dances were evil. “But I learned that when our people danced,” she said, “they were dancing for healing when someone was sick.” Bruyere said she intends to incorporate in her work aspects of her people’s once-denigrated culture.Suicide and self-inflicted injuries are the top causes of death in Canada for First Nations youth and adults up to age 44, according to a 2003 Health Canada study. Aboriginal youth commit suicide about five to six times more often that non-aboriginal youth; Inuit youth, in particular, commit suicide at 11 times the national average.While manning the indigenous ministries booth at the recent Anglican-Lutheran Joint Assembly in Ottawa, Bruyere said that bishops and priests came by with stories about recent suicides. “It’s painful to hear about suicide, even with people I don’t know,” she said. One particular area she would like to explore is how to provide ministry to a growing aboriginal community in urban centers.Bruyere said she feels honored to have been chosen for the job by the Rev. Canon Ginny Doctor, and for the opportunity to work with the Rev. Cynthia Patterson, suicide prevention coordinator for eastern Canada and a deacon in the Diocese of Quebec.“What really impresses me about Nancy is her pastoral care and her ministry in her community,” says Doctor. ” She works without pay to make sure her people have the spiritual care needed. Our prayer is that we can raise enough resources to have suicide prevention coordinators in every diocese where there are significant Indigenous communities.”Bruyere described her new ministry as “a blessing from God,” and a “continuing learning life experience about who God is and who we are as aboriginal people in Christ.”Ordained a deacon on July 22, 1997 by Bishop Gordon Beardy, Bruyere became a priest in 1999.Bruyere is married to the Rev. Richard Bruyere, who, like her, is a non-stipendiary priest in the Diocese of Keewatin. They have four children and 25 grandchildren.

IAF is a well-established network of faith and community-based organizations that trains leaders and empowers communities.“The IAF training got my feet on the ground and into the community from the moment I arrived into a new, mission-focused role, in a place unfamiliar to me,” said the Rev. Twila Smith, who serves as priest-in-charge of Grace Episcopal Church and as a missioner at Church of the Mediator, both in Allentown, Pennsylvania. “I knew how to build collaborative relationships in the community and began ‘one-on-ones’ with neighbors and potential partners the first week.”Aaron Klinefelter (foreground right) with a group of pastors and leaders he used to co-facilitate in the Diocese of Southern Ohio before he and his family moved to Berkeley for him to attend CDSP. Photo: Aaron KleinfelterCDSP, the Episcopal seminary in Berkeley, California, initially offered the weeklong training as an elective. Beginning with the fall 2016 semester, it’s a requirement.The training isn’t intended to provide participants an opportunity for personal transformation, although it often does change the way they view societal structures.“The real change is lived out after the training – that’s really where the rubber hits the road,” said Anna Eng, a Bay Area IAF lead organizer. “We don’t organize these trainings so that people can have an experience. We really challenge people to think about how this is going to impact the way that they operate in their ministry back home.”What encourages her, Eng said, is when she meets people six months or a year later and “they are still mulling what they learned, or they are practicing individual meetings. They’re engaging differently with public officials. That’s where the change actually happens. Certainly, people have ‘aha moments’ and get agitated and think differently – that’s very, very common – but I’m more interested in knowing what they do with it.”Anne Clarke, a 2015 graduate of CDSP, took the course in 2013. She uses what she learned during the course in her job as lifelong Christian formation coordinator, a new position in Diocese of Northern California.“I have spent a lot of time one-on-one connecting with others and bringing people with similar concerns together,” she said in a telephone interview with Episcopal News Service. “I cannot provide programming for everyone, but I can provide a deeper sense of connectedness.”When Clarke moved to Sacramento she sought out local IAF organizers, people she could talk to about challenges such as the time it takes to build relationships, to get to know others, to establish trust. The training, she said, has helped her to communicate better and to form a framework for moving from one-on-one conversations to bringing groups together to accomplish things people cannot accomplish alone.The IAF broad-based community organizing training that seminarians receive is not issue-oriented. It focuses on building relationships and determining common concerns. It’s a long process, and it doesn’t hinge on an individual. Jennifer Snow, CDSP’s director of extended learning and an assistant professor of practical theology, says that cannot be emphasized enough.The Rev. Twila Smith with Sydney Davis, a member of Episcopal Church of the Mediator. Smith and Davis visited Philadelphia last spring to learn more about refugee resettlement in advance of opening a Refugee Community Center at Church of the Mediator in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The center opens Sept. 17. Photo: Twila SmithOne of the pre-course readings assigned to seminarians is an unpublished paper written by a Presbyterian pastor who for seven years worked with a congregation in Michigan. She led her congregation to become an IAF member and to become active the community, but when she left, she discovered that the work had no roots without her.“In fact, people didn’t like it. They didn’t understand it. They were eager to get out of it,” said Snow, adding the pastor hadn’t done the groundwork to get congregation invested in the work, which is something Snow wants the seminarians to understand at the outset.“I want them to be thinking from day one – you know you as the leader can say, ‘yeah, we’re going to do this,’ because you might have the power and the influence in the congregation,” she said. “But how are you going to get the entire congregation to understand what you are doing and invest in it beyond your personal charisma or personal position of power?”IAF  designed the training for people who are becoming active in community institutions; it’s not specifically for congregations, though a lot of IAF member institutions are congregations. The language is not theological, and it doesn’t address the dynamics of congregations or their resistance to community organizing.From after-school tutoring programs to homeless shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens and community gardens, Episcopal churches nationwide provide services in their communities. Still, most of these ministries exist within parish walls. To prepare future leaders for ministry beyond the parish walls is a priority for CDSP.“Leaders in ministry have a public role and that it’s part of our job to help our students to know how to handle that,” said the Rev. Susanna Singer, an associate professor of ministry development and the director for CDSP’s Doctor of Ministry program. “How does a religious leader handle public conversation and leadership in the public sphere without crossing lines inappropriately, but also without selling the church down the river and refusing to do that thing that we’re perfectly within our rights to do legally and we’re absolutely called to do by God?”Through the development of its new curriculum, faculty members considered public discourse, action and collaboration, along with contextual awareness and critical reflection, the latter which is something IAF does well, she added.In the two congregations Smith serves, she said the IAF approach, as well as her Asset-Based Community Development training, helps.“To understand values and power, and to learn the interests of the parishes,” she said. “Holding that alongside our Baptismal Covenant. We’re having hard conversations about how we live as we say we believe. Enacting our faith calls upon us, I believe, to look inside the church at how we use power, too. And the IAF training helped me not only see that but to see avenues for change.”One of the challenges Smith faces is that the majority of the people in church on Sunday mornings do not live and work in the church neighborhood.“The IAF training helps in examining not only who but where we are called to be the church,” said Smith. “The IAF training emphasizes an active voice – and mobilized bodies – for living the gospel.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

These existing buildings have been radically transformed by completely rethinking the internal configuration, punching larger openings through the building envelope and introducing private courtyards. This draws natural light deep into the floor plates and enriches the new residential use.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasLocated in a north-west London courtyard tucked between a Victorian terrace and main railway lines, this landlocked site presented a great design challenge. Our task was to convert and remodel a run-down industrial compound from the 1950’s into contemporary residential accommodation. The buildings, once a mechanic’s garage and office, today comprise a generous open-plan three-bedroom house and two one-bedroom apartments.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanExternally the buildings were re-faced, providing on the one hand the opportunity to create cavity walls and hence substantially upgrade the thermal performance; on the other a new façade material could be introduced, uniting what was previously a patchwork arrangement into a balanced composition. Responding to the courtyard setting a reflective façade material was used that glistens in the direct sunlight and give the development a jewel-like appearance. The shimmering surface changes with the light conditions and injects an element of surprise and nobility into the main courtyard.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe existing predominant material in the courtyard is brick, used on the rear facades of the Victorian terrace. This is in stark contrast to the ornate rendered front elevations, a treatment that Victorians esteemed. Our intention was to connect the development with its setting and pick up on this front : rear material relationship. Therefore we opted for brickwork as the courtyard facing material of the new residential units, however, because these elevations are the front facades of the new development we used the most elegant version of this traditional material – coated with a metallic bronze glazing. Along the rear elevation facing the railway lines we used a dark insulating render, inverting the Victorian strategy.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn order to distinguish the different parts of the development and to give each building its own identity, we introduced asymmetrical gables to the front facing elevations. Even the previously flat vaulted passageway into the courtyard picks up this theme and received an inverted gable.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasBrick is also the predominant material within the interior and was used as a device to record the buildings’ history. As walls were moved, ground floor slabs lowered and ceilings pushed up to maximize the height on the ground floor, changes in the bond of the white washed brick walls mark the previous position of these elements. The result is a richly textured internal perimeter, imbued with the memory of place. This is contrasted with polished and rough concrete finishes, a coffered ceiling and Oak paneling.Save this picture!SectionThe ground floor of the main residence accommodates the living, dining and kitchen areas. The open floor plan is structured by three elements: large openings bringing in the natural light, a sunken seating area set into the polished concrete floor and a wide staircase leading to the upper floors.Project gallerySee allShow lessCF House / Christian Calle FigueroaSelected ProjectsVideo: Steven Holl and the Architectural ExperienceArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Lyndon Douglas+ 15 Share 2014 Structural Engineers: Richard Jackson Engineering Consultants EC1 Refurbishments LLP Lighting Designer: The Gables / Patalab Architecture THD Consulting Engineerslast_img read more
