Labouré Announces its First-ever Virtual Gala, an Evening of Joy, Hope, and Inspiration in Celebration of New Catholic Vocations!

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., July 24, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- These are challenging times for the Catholic Church, says Labouré, but amidst declining vocation numbers, aging clergy and religious, and reduced church attendance due to COVID-19 restrictions, there are reasons for hope:

* Devoted pastors have found creative ways to minister to the faithful during the coronavirus pandemic.

* Heroic religious sisters and brothers continue to work with the poor and elderly - going to great lengths to provide desperately needed services while protecting the health and safety of vulnerable populations.

* Online video sharing has given Catholics and non-Catholics alike an unprecedented glimpse into the lives of priests and religious - revealing the humanity, the commitment, and the joyful outlook so often found among those who have dedicated their lives to Christ.

* And, thanks to Labouré benefactors, hundreds of aspiring priests and religious, once blocked from answering God's call due to student loan debt, have entered formation!

On August 12, 2020, at 7 p.m. (CST), Labouré will celebrate these and other positive developments within the Catholic Church in its first-ever Virtual Gala!

Through broadcast and streaming technologies, this biannual Twin Cities-based gathering has been transformed into a nationwide event with unlimited potential viewership!

The Most Reverend Joseph Edward Strickland, Bishop of Tyler, TX; Senator Rick Santorum; The Most Reverend Andrew H. Cozzens, Auxiliary Bishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, MN; and many more!

Danville Congregational Church Chosen Best Place of Worship by East Bay Times Reader’s Choice Awards

DANVILLE, Calif. -- Danville Congregational Church (DCC) (www.danvillechurch.org) today announced that it was named "Best Place of Worship" for 2020-2021 by the East Bay Times Reader's Choice Awards. The church also received that honor from East Bay Times readers for 2019-2020. This latest recognition will appear in a supplement to be published with the Sunday, June 28 edition of the East Bay Times.

Background

DCC is a progressive spiritual community that is open and affirming of the LGBTQ community, celebrates differences, is committed to anti-racism work, and encourages alternate views. Members come from many religious traditions, from Baptist to Catholic, from Unitarian to Orthodox, or with no church background at all.

Jim and Shii Stickler began attending Danville Congregational Church earlier this year, based upon a friend's recommendation to visit a United Church of Christ (UCC) congregation. "It was important for us to find a church committed to an open and affirming philosophy of acceptance for all, and we have found that at DCC," said Jim Stickler. "The pastors and people of this community really put this into practice and are truly welcoming."

At DCC, church programs and affiliations include the youth group, a sister parish affiliation with San Antonio Catholic Church in Guatemala, and partnerships with the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, Hope Solutions, and Shelter, Inc. In addition, DCC provides support to other religious institutions and non-profits that serve communities across Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

An important community resource located on the Danville Congregational Church campus is Dayspring Preschool. Its "inquiry learning" approach promotes the use of a child's natural curiosity and hands-on learning materials. Enrichment classes include music and movement, soccer, and dance. The program goal is to help children develop a life-long love of learning, preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond.

Online presence

DCC was an early adopter of an online church service driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. From a one-way live stream on March 15, DCC quickly transitioned to a video conference service. The result has been an authentic church experience, with screen displays of announcements, the liturgy, scripture, and recorded music. Since Sunday service moved online, church attendance, program participation, and giving at DCC have all increased significantly.

"This recognition from readers of the East Bay Times reflects the impact our Sunday service and church programs are having on members of our church community, especially now with our virtual presence," said Senior Pastor Rev. Eric Sherlock. "Because we are now online accessible to anyone with a laptop or smartphone, we can engage with people in nursing and retirement homes; family and friends of church members; and others who can't attend a live church service. This will remain an important component of our ministry and programs long after shelter-in-place restrictions have ended."

About Danville Congregational Church

Danville Congregational Church traces its roots to a women's sewing circle, which came together in June of 1954. The group's efforts led to the formation of San Ramon Valley Congregational Church the following year. In June, 1986, members voted to change the name to Danville Congregational Church. Today, Danville Congregational Church is a member congregation of the United Church of Christ. Our denomination formed in 1957, when it completed a process of conversation resulting in the union of two denominations: the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church.

Interfaith Chaplains Training for the Work of Racial Justice

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Responding to the recent murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Reverend Ineda Adesanya, CEO, announced that the Chaplaincy Institute ("ChI") is committing to training student chaplains and equipping current chaplains with new tools for spiritual care of those harmed by injustice.

Interfaith chaplains are spiritual caregivers to people of all faiths and backgrounds, and to those of no particular faith. The Chaplaincy Institute trains interfaith chaplains for service in healthcare, prisons, street ministry and stealth chaplaincy in various settings.

Rev. Adesanya said, "We must come together in sacred connection, united against hate, to demand justice now. We must, each and all, lend our voices to demand safety for our communities and our world.... The Chaplaincy Institute recognizes the call in this difficult moment and will answer it."

ChI's training in prophetic voice and social transformation equips students to understand oppression and facilitate social transformation from a foundation of spiritual principles across all faith traditions. In the Interfaith Chaplaincy Program students receive extensive preparation for spiritual leadership and compassionate care across diverse religious, spiritual and social contexts.

The Chaplaincy Institute has expanded to allow training from anywhere in the world. Students who are African American or who hold marginalized identities are eligible for scholarships. Whether online or in-person, ChI's programs are creating an expanding network of interfaith chaplains working toward our vision: A just world that honors the sacred connection of all.

‘Real Power Today,’ led by Pastor Arnie Klann kicks off his 2020 Spiritual Warfare Retreats in Laguna Hills, CA

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. -- Pastor Arnie Klann, "Real Power Today" announced. Pastor Klann is thrilled to have the opportunity to kick off ministry "that speaks to the unusual and trying times of today, that can lead to strong spiritual interface."

The ministry series is "Real Power Today." The series will kick-off June 25th & June 26th in a Retreat format. The focus is on helping people to push back and heal against Spiritual attack, through a Christian and scriptural format.

The conference series is designed to be targeted, hopeful, and educational. Spiritual Warfare is a Deliverance based, Biblical study.

In a recent interview, Pastor Arnie Klann introduced his theme, "Refueling a Mid-Crisis Life." "The retreats serve as a training, healing, and educational tool; specifically, for alleviating what can feel like a spiritual depression or anxiety. The purpose is to be assisted in prayer for the aid of healing."

In reviewing Pastor Klann's concept, it was intriguing to find that these conferences will be set up in a private and relaxed setting; led primarily by an educational base and an opportunity for small group prayer or private prayer. It will be a day long retreat, which includes a luncheon, the ability to relax on break-time in a beautiful coiffed landscape with water and fountains.

"The relaxation environment is secondary to the primary goal of healing in a deeper, scriptural, and Christian-based venue," Klann states.

The retreats are designed to be intentionally small, (maximum of 10 participants); in order to get more personal prayer time achieved in a shorter period; rather than multiple visits at church.

For more information, scheduling & pricing can be found at https://realpowertoday.com/ website.

TryTank Experimental Lab launches ‘Dial-A-Priest’

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- TryTank Experimental Lab is making Dial-A-Priest available to hospitals around the country starting Tuesday, April 7, 2020. Dial-A-Priest is a free service that connects callers to an Episcopal clergyperson who can offer the "Ministration at the Time of Death" from the Book of Common Prayer by telephone to hospital patients.

The hotline can be reached 24 hours a day at (213) 423-3600. The number can easily be found at www.dialapriest.com. On mobile devices the site functions as one-click dialing.

"The anticipated number of people who will die from this pandemic will be too large for our hospitals medically and has already exceeded what the Church can respond to pastorally," said the Rev. Lorenzo Lebrija, director of the TryTank. "Too many people are dying at the same time, and without the physical presence of a local pastor. This is a way to use the gifts of clergy from all over the United States to help where there is the most need."

While the clergy on the hotline are all Episcopal, they will offer the prayers to any person who wishes to receive them.

After conceiving the idea, TryTank put out a call to mainly retired Episcopal priests through Facebook and other channels. Within hours more than 75 volunteers had been screened and were undergoing orientation on how to use the system.

"What strikes me about this tragedy is how alone everyone is. We are all alone in our various isolations," the Rev. Alice Downs said. "But through this project I can reach into someone's aloneness. From way over here on an island off the coast of Maine I can say to someone dying alone those ancient sacred words that bind us as one people."

TryTank Experimental Laboratory for Church Growth and Innovation is a joint project between Virginia Theological Seminary and the General Theological Seminary. TryTank offers inventive approaches to the challenges facing the Episcopal Church. Working in partnership across the Episcopal Church, TryTank works to understand the forces threatening the church in order to identify creative ways to equip future leaders to reinvigorate the church.

Shincheonji Church of Jesus Accomplishment of 100,000 Graduates, Open Word Seminars, and A Leading Volunteer Organization all Across the World

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- As we reign in the end of 2019, many are reflecting back to their achievements within this year. Without a doubt, this past year the religious realm has seen progressive developments however, none has made such achievements as Shincheonji Church of Jesus.

Shincheonji Church of Jesus the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony is ahead of its time as it continues to set new trends within religion. Though its origin began with a few, starting out with only Chairman Man Hee Lee, Shincheonji has now gained a massive following of 300,000 and continues to grow due to its clear interpretation of the Bible.

Shincheonji is making accomplishments that no other religious organization has seen nor ever attempted.

A few of the achievements that Shincheonji has made just within the latter half of this year are the following:

100,000 Graduation: On November 10th, Shincheonji held a ceremony for 103,764 graduates. All of whom studied with Shincheonji's Zion Mission Center. Through their own will, these graduates moved from their previous churches to Shincheonji Church of Jesus stating that Shincheonji gives "clear interpretation of the Bible using the principles of the 5 Ws and 1H versus, while many churches emphasis on worldly success.

Pastor Open Bible Seminar: With a shocking 400 pastors in attendance, Chairman Man Hee Lee toured all of Korea hitting seven major cities (Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Daegu, Busan, Jeju, Gwangju) delivering the gospel of God specifically focusing on "God's purpose of the creation of the new thing, promise, and a new thing".

Community Open Bible Seminar: Not only did Chairman Man Hee Lee speak to religious leaders, but all 12 tribe leaders of Shincheonji and over 70 branch churches head lecturers spoke to the public on the topic of "Harvesting and God's Purpose the Creation of a New Thing." After speaking these seminars, a whopping 70,000 people registered to learn the Bible through Shincheonji's Zion Mission Center.

Benefitting the Community: Another initiative that Shincheonji has taken is to find harmony between religion and society. With 76,000 members, Shincheonji's Volunteer Group contributed to holding activities to aid underpriviledged people, senior citizens, and more. These social contribution activities have benefited 101,000 recipients. It has helped 26,000 elderly people, 10,000 underprivileged people, 7,000 disabled people, 5,000 multicultural people, 3,000 veterans' organizations including national patriots.

Shincheonji continues to progressively grow at a pace that other religious organizations cannot follow. It has become the light and salt of the world with all its members actively participating to benefit the society, to make the world a better place and the heal all the nations.

Shincheonji Church of Jesus emphasized, "This year was a meaningful year. The 100,000 graduation and the Open Bible Seminar became the spotlight of the world. This event isn't just the talk of the world but, it will be marked as a groundbreaking event and a wake up call to the world of religion that will bring a change in the world of religion."

Shincheonji church of Jesus Graduates 100,000 Students Worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- On November 10, 2019, Shincheonji church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony held one of the world's largest graduation with the count of 103,764 graduates. In addition to the 100,000 graduates in South Korea, it was also held simultaneously around the world from school locations in Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, and the United States including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, New York, as well as in South and Central America.

The graduation was broadcast live within major cities in Korea and Internationally for the graduates overseas to participate.

This graduation is the largest graduation from a single denomination worldwide. Adding the combined total number of graduates together would equal to 100 churches of 1,000 congregation members, which is greatly different from the drastic fall of the number of congregation members seen globally in the world of religion and it marks a historical triumph for theological studies especially when seminary education enrollment has declined for the past decade according to a study conducted by the Association of Theology Schools.

Shincheonji is the only place in the world where 100,000 students graduated after completing an in-depth theology program which is open to students wishing to study the Bible and the prophecies from the book of Revelation. Free of coast consisting of beginners, intermediate, and advance content for 6months to a year and graduating after passing the final exams.

Of course it is incredible enough to see 100,000 students graduating from a single denomination; however, what is more shocking is that Shincheonji - which is teaching the fulfillment of Revelation and has been growing at an incredibly rapid pace since 1984 is labeled as a "cult" by the Christian world of the Republic of Korea especially through the CCK (Christian Council of Korea). Despite criticism Shincheonji has received, such as major allegations that "Shincheonji claiming the founder of Shincheonji being Jesus," and "students are coerced to learn and brainwashes the people with their teaching." The graduates reported that those are all false accusations and the reality they've witnessed is completely different.

"For the past 8 months within my Bible study, I was checking to see if any of the criticisms against Shincheonji were true, from making people quit jobs, divorce, and leave their homes, to forcing us in believing the founder of Shincheonji, Mr. Mann Hee Lee as Jesus, I realized that those were false rumors and far from the truth. Anyone can study the Bible according to their free-will and if you do not want to study the Bible you can stop studying at any time. I am thankful that I had a chance to study the Bible for the past 8 months and to see for myself that Shincheonji's teaching of the Bible is biblical and logical," said Graduate Lynn Maldonado.

The growth of Shincheonji is expected to grow exponentially after the graduation. With the evangelism rate of the graduates being over 100%, currently there are 200,000 plus students that are enrolled in the theology program. If Shincheonji continues to grow at this pace, then within 3 years it will reach a million congregation members, and the status quo of the religious world will change.

"All this is not of man's power but of God's power.
All this is the work of God's miracles."

African Methodist Episcopal Church Installs New Senior Bishop

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- On June 26, during the AME Church's Annual Council of Bishops and General Board Meeting Worship Service, at the Birmingham-Jefferson County Convention Center in Birmingham, Alabama, the Right Reverend Adam Jefferson Richardson, Jr. was installed as the Senior Bishop of the AME Church.

The Senior Bishop is the active Bishop with the longest tenure of service in the AME Church and is first in order of precedence among the Council of Bishops. The position occupies a key role in the polity and practice of the AME Church. While a Senior Bishop has existed since the incorporation of the church as a denomination in 1816, the first formal investiture ceremony occurred at the 2004 General Conference.

The ceremony includes the passage of the Senior Bishop's regalia-a solid gold medallion with the logo of the denomination donated by the family of Claude Stephens.

During his investiture, Senior Bishop Richardson commented, "I am honored for service at this time in the history of our church. I seek an interest in your prayers that I may rise to the occasion, that inadequacies may not be too glaring. Whatever successes, whatever achievements, the credit, the glory will belong to God in Christ."

Bishop Richardson succeeds the Right Reverend McKinley Young who died in January 2019. He was elected and consecrated the 115th Bishop at the 1996 General Conference. With service in pulpits throughout Georgia and Florida, the last church he pastored prior to his election was Bethel AME Church in Tallahassee, Florida where he served for 18 years. He obtained the Bachelor of Arts degree from the Florida A&M University (where he was noted as the head drum major of the "Marching 100" Band). He received his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Sacred Theology degrees at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a Bishop, he has served churches in Sierra Leone, Ghana Liberia, Cote D'Ivoire, Togo and Benin (14th District), the Republic of South Africa (19th District), Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and Washington, DC (2nd District) and currently Florida and the Bahamas Islands (11th District). Within he has served as chair of the Health Commission, Lay, Commission on Seminaries, Colleges and Schools and as President of the Council of Bishops. He has represented the AME Church in a number of Ecumenical bodies including the World Methodist Council and the National Congress of Black Churches. He is also a prolific author with articles or chapters in several books including the African-American Devotional Bible and Headlines to Homilies.

Bishop Richardson will serve as Senior Bishop until his retirement in 2024. Reflecting on his time as a FAMU drum major he said, "There are quite a few steps (literally and figuratively) between the Patch (the practice field) and Senior Bishop!"

He and his wife Dr. Connie Speights Richardson are proud parents of two adult children Monique (a Leon County Judge) and Trey (a certified hospital radiographer and professional saxophone player).

About the African Methodist Episcopal Church:

Founded in 1787 by Richard Allen, the African Methodist Episcopal Church is the world's oldest denomination founded by African-Americans. It has over 2 million members in 40 countries on five continents.
