Focus on Scotland: Coaching vacancy up for grabs?


first_imgPerhaps professional courtesy is, rather surprisingly, preventing two coaches who are known to be fond of donning a tie and presenting themselves to board members from flirting with the SRU. Perhaps they are unwilling to tread on Johnson’s toes; affording him time and space to meet Dodson without external pressures. Perhaps we should cast our eyes skyward and wait for the swine to fly.Ambition would mean that any coach desperate to break into the international scene would have no qualms with getting in touch, but there are other ways of going about it instead of just facing down a camera and saying that you want a job.It would not suit Scotland to throw names about at this point anyway. Johnson may have added a few pounds to any prospective contract thanks to the talk from Australia about him, and the rumours of jobs within the ARU are widely expected to be true. However, if he does go, Scotland have to be wise with their process.It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Dean Ryan had absolutely no interest in being anything other than an interim forwards coach with Scotland – something made clear from the start and protected as he rarely ventured out into the Scottish glare – yet he is more than happy to throw his lot in with perennial Premiership strugglers Worcester Warriors.Reputation: Ewen McKenzie is a long shotIf Johnson left there would be a need to start again. The last 6 Nations would be rendered almost completely irrelevant, bar nodding to the public morale engendered by improved performances. Systems and staff would be completely overhauled again. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Decision time: Rumours abound that Scott Johnson is attracting interest Down Under but will he choose Scotland?By Alan DymockTHERE IS a coaching job available. There is no velvet rope cordoning-off the hot seat and there is not a flashy pop-up spamming every ambitious coach around, but there is a job there for anyone willing to fight for it.A little more clarity, we are not talking about the Ireland job.While knickers are untwisted, Irish fans can be assured that nothing will be made of Jake White of the Brumbies talking and Ewen McKenzie of the Queensland Reds beaming in with an audition tape for the role. McKenzie is certainly an option for the international post and Leinster’s own Joe Schmidt is much coveted – indeed his own captain Leo Cullen admitted he would be good for the post, recently – and he is due to talk with the IRFU. Ireland, it seems, have plenty of suitors.However, it is interesting to note that not one of these men have ever declared an interest, publicly and strongly, for the Scotland job.Schmidt, in fairness, is strongly engrained in the Irish game. He would be the popular choice anyway, maybe not the ‘people’s choice’ yet, but not far from it. Yet it must be questioned: what happens to McKenzie if he is knocked back? Does he fade into the ether, or does he shuffle apologetically to the back of the seemingly short queue for the Scotland job, trying to pretend that it was a top choice all along and not the hairy-knuckled bridesmaid to an emerald bride?Hands up: Yet Dean Ryan chose WorcesterThe problem is that nothing can be said about the Scotland job until after caretaker coach Scott Johnson’s sit-down with the boss, CEO Mark Dodson. The matter is cloudy in uncertainty and not helped with news from the south signalling that Johnson may be a wanted man on his own shores. People in the know down under suggest that the ARU may come a-courtin’ and with the Melbourne Rebels coach already told he will have to re-interview for his own post next season and with McKenzie jumping from the Reds ship, there are options opening up for Johnson to make his glorious return south. The silence may be telling. Dodson and his rugby advisors have to pitch to Johnson, rather than the other way around. If that falls through they have to wait for the fall-out of the Irish wrangling. If Johnson goes and Schmidt is holding up a green jersey for the cameras at the Aviva Stadium, Murrayfield will become a place of action.Somewhere in the bowels of the ground Scotland defence coach Matt Taylor, formerly a Red staffer, will be sitting in a hot seat of his own in front of a computer, frantically trying to find Ewen McKenzie’s Skype address.

Hotshots: Ospreys upcoming rugby star Sam Davies


first_imgHow do you feel about winning IRB Junior Player of the Year?I was shocked to be nominated but it was an honour to win. I’m gutted about losing the U20 World Championship final, but this is a bonus picking up this award.Did you start playing rugby because of your dad (Gloucester DoR Nigel Davies)? Not really. I used to play football at Swansea City and I just did a bit of rugby at school. I got a trial for Ospreys U16s a year young and when I got in I knocked the football on the head.Always played fly-half? Yes, and I’ve always been a goal-kicker too. How would you describe your playing style? I like to think I’m a good controller of the game. Kicking is one of my strengths but I can mix the game up a bit too.What are your aims for next season? To get more game time for the Ospreys – I haven’t played in the Rabo yet.Is your dad supportive? Very. He gives me things to work on but he never gets on top of me. It was weird when I played against Gloucester though! He is more confident in me than I am in myself.

2019 Rugby World Cup Bronze Final: New Zealand 40-17 Wales


first_imgFly-half Richie Mo’unga rounded off the scoring, getting an unconverted try from ten metres out, but at the end the score didn’t matter. The crowd got the chance to sound their appreciation for the departing men, who cut emotional figures at the end – perhaps the biggest cheers reserved for coaches Hansen and Gatland.Star manMany All Blacks fans will be sad to see Ben Smith go and he rewarded their support with a fine parting display. His first try was a whip-smart change of direction and the score saw him surpass Jonah Lomu on the list of all-tim All Blacks try-scorers.His second saw him get totally dismiss Tomos Williams with big hand-off and danced in. As the game tore on he was still coming off his wing to get involved, risking heavy traffic to make carries. If you can’t be in a World Cup final one last time, it is the kind of farewell you would want.Seventh heaven: Josh Adams gets his seventh try of the tournament (Getty Images)The reactionAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen said: “Firstly, I’d just like to say how proud I am of our team. There was a lot of external talk about not wanting to play this game. We’ve come off an extremely disappointing result against England, where we got beaten by a team that played better than us on the day, but we’ve come back and showed some real character and commitment to the jersey, so hopefully we’ve made a lot of New Zealanders proud.“I’d like to commend Wales, they came to play and it was a good game of footy. The game is bigger than all of us and we’re continually trying to capture people to become part of it.“If you come with intent to play and look to try to score tries, like both teams did today, we can capture more and more people and get them excited about the game.“Lastly, I’d like to wish England and South Africa all the very best tomorrow. We’ll have a new world champion and we’ll commend them for their efforts because it’s a very hard tournament to win.”Wales boss Warren Gatland said: “I hope that what we have achieved in the last 12 years, they continue to build on that because what we have done and what we have achieved, it would break my heart if Wales went back into the doldrums.”The teams New Zealand: Beauden Barrett, Ben Smith, Ryan Crotty (Jordie Barrett 56), Sonny Bill Williams (Anton Lienert-Brown 56), Rieko Ioane; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith (Brad Webber 56); Joe Moody (Atu Moli 56), Dane Coles (Liam Coltman 24), Nepo Laulala (Angus Ta’avao 56), Brodie Retallick, Scott Barrett (Patrick Tuipulotu 60), Shannon Frizzell (Matt Todd 60), Sam Cane, Kieran Read (capt).Tries: Moody 5, Barrett 13, B Smith 32, Crotty 42, Mo’unga 76.

Squeezing in: Ben Smith gets his second score of the night (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2019 Rugby World Cup Bronze Final: New Zealand 40-17 WalesHead-to-headP – 35New Zealand wins – 32Wales wins – 3Did you know?These two have met four times in the World Cup, with the All Blacks winning all four times.New Zealand have won two out of three previous bronze finals. In 1991 they defeated Scotland, in 1999 they lost to South Africa and in 2003 they defeated France.Warren Gatland’s last outing with Wales marks the 15th time a head coach has taken on his native country in a World Cup match. Of  14 other occasions (13 different coaches), only one was successful. Eddie Jones led England to victory over Australia in this World Cup.New Zealand have only once lost back-to-back RWC matches. In 1999, they lost to France in the semis, then lost to South Africa in the bronze final.In a nutshellIt may have been the game no one wanted, but this third-place play-off served as a victory lap for so many figures who have thrilled us in the Test arena over the years.Ben Smith got two tries to send him on the way to France. Ryan Crotty had his score. Sonny Bill Williams and Kieran Read had their last win in black and a way to say thank you to departing coach Steve Hansen. Wales were still swinging too, of course, and Warren Gatland will appreciate his charges putting in one last tilt before he heads home to New Zealand to take over at the Chiefs.But it has been an exhausting and injury-riddled end to this World Cup for a Wales side so close to making the final. If they had won in the semi would likely have metaphorically been on one leg, and they faced a Kiwi group full of running in Tokyo. Six tries to two here tells you a bit of that story.Prop Joe Moody started it all off, galloping in for the opener in open space after Read and Brodie Retallick made nice touches. An Aaron Smith cut with Beauden Barrett left Adam Beard and Dillon Lewis stuck in the mud as the full-back cut through in ruthless fashion for his own score to be 14 points up early. The All Blacks would play front-foot rugby for large swathes of this match.Gatland’s Wales are tough, though.Hitting up: Hallam Amos takes contact(Getty Images)Lewis almost made up for it soon after, crashed over the line from close, but he was held up. Wales could go back and build again from a another maul and Tomos Williams worked his forwards round the corner, though it was all so slow as All Blacks slammed into tackles. Patient ’til that point, Rhys Patchell got a ball on the drift with Williams retreating, and threw a pearler of a cut-out pass to Hallam Amos who took it to the house for a score.Patchell converted.The running went the other way again. A switchblade line from Ben Smith gave New Zealand their third try. It all came from Retallick thieving ball from a ruck, a  Read basketball pass over the top and then Smith deciding to halt his run and then completely change direction. He eventually tumbled over in a tangle of bodies.The veteran – playing his last game for the All Blacks before heading to play for Pau – had a second try at the stroke of half-time. He took ball from his old Highlanders mucker Aaron Smith, and with little touchline real estate to work with, he pushed out a hand to keep Tomos Williams at bay and grab another.After a break in which the emperor of Japan got a standing ovation, the valedictorian run for departing All Blacks continued.Ryan Crotty lashed onto an offload to go over, and then everyone thought Ben Smith had his hat-trick. But while he threw off an Owen Lane tackle and powered to the line, it was chalked off for the build up – Sonny Bill Williams lobbed a pass over the top but the touch before it got to Smith meant it was a knock-on.Familiar sight: Sonny Bill Williams throws an offload (Getty Images)Both teams rang the changes and the crowd got to sound their appreciation for towering Welsh presence Alun Wyn Jones. And Josh Adams got his seventh with a pick and go, of all thing. He was clearly hungry for more but the ball could never be worked to him in space.center_img The All Blacks won the third-place play-off in Tokyo this Friday Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

Mary-Marguerite Kohn, de 62 años, murió el 5 de mayo en el Centro de Urgencias de la Universidad de Maryland, en Baltimore, donde había sido trasladada después de la agresión de que fue víctima y donde la habían sometido a un sistema de soporte vital.Brenda Brewington, de 59 años y la auxiliar administrativa de la parroquia, fue declarada muerta en el lugar de los hechos, la oficina parroquial, el pasado 3 de mayo.El presunto asaltante [de ambas mujeres] identificado por el Departamento de Policía del Condado de Howard como Douglas Franklin Jones, de 56 años, fue hallado muerto en un bosque adyacente a la iglesia. Murió de una herida de bala que se infligiera a sí mismo con un arma que se encontró cerca de su cadáver, dijo la policía en un informe el 4 de mayo. La policía localizó también un sitio de acampamento en el bosque con pertenencias personales en el que cree que estaba viviendo Jones.“[La iglesia de] San Pedro tiene un largo historial de atención a los pobres y necesitados del condado de Howard, una tradición que se remonta al momento mismo del nacimiento de esta iglesia en 1842, y un ministerio del que la Rda. Mary-Marguerite Kohn y Brenda Brewington fueron continuadoras hasta los trágicos sucesos del 3 de mayo”, dijo Craig Stuart-Paul, guardián mayor de San Pedro, en una declaración.Stuart-Paul posteriormente prometió que el ministerio de la parroquia proseguiría “y no lo haremos desde detrás de un vidrio a prueba de balas”.La iglesia le ha ofrecido apoyo a los obreros fabriles y peones agrícolas desde la fundación de la ciudad, y mantuvo este servicio hasta que un incendio destruyó el templo en 1939. San Pedro fue reconstruido, usando muchos de los ladrillos quemados del sitio anterior, así como el trabajo del entonces rector Rdo. Julius Velasco, y reabrió sus puertas en 1940, según dice el comunicado.Los miembros de San Pedro se reunieron el 6 de mayo para una Eucaristía privada en espíritu de duelo por la violencia y las muertes. “Comenzó el proceso de restauración”, dijo Stuart-Paul después del oficio.“Muchos en la diócesis se preguntaban cuánto tiempo pasaría hasta que la congregación pudiera reunirse en este espacio”, dijo el domingo en San Pedro Eugene Sutton, obispo diocesano de Maryland, según informa el diario Baltimore Sun. “¿Cuánto tiempo ha pasado? No mucho”.Stuart-Paul dijo que Brewington y Kohn eran “las señoras más amables y generosas que uno hubiera conocido”, y agrego que ellas eran “de darlo todo”. Los órganos de Kohn fueron donados después de su muerte y las donaciones “dicen algo de la clase de mujer que ella era”, agregó.Los investigadores de la policía del condado de Howard dijeron en un comunicado haber sabido que Jones había tenido una disputa recientemente con miembros de la iglesia. Él visitaba la iglesia con regularidad para tener acceso a su despensa, pero en los últimos tiempos se había vuelto beligerante y polémico. La policía cree que la ira de Jones con la iglesia puede haber sido el motivo de la balacera, pero no creen que alguien en particular fue su objetivo. Nadie más estaba en el edificio en el momento en que tuvieron lugar los disparos.Si bien algunos de los primeros informes dijeron que Jones había sido rechazado de la despensa de la parroquia por venir con mayor frecuencia de la que debía, The Sun reportó que el Rdo. Kirk Kubicek había dicho durante el oficio del 6 de mayo que Brewington llevaba a Jones a la despensa en el momento de los disparos.Una guardiana contó que se había encontrado con [los cuerpos sangrantes de] Brewington y Kohn alrededor de las 5:20 P.M. del 3 de mayo y había llamado al 911.Sutton habló durante el oficio acerca del pesar y la preocupación, pero también mencionó “la ira en una sociedad que aún no ha resuelto como quitar las armas de fuego de las manos de personas con enfermedades mentales, de las manos de aquellos que pueden causar mucho daño”.Sentimos ira hacia Jones, dijo “pero también reconocemos que él fue una víctima, aunque causara víctimas. Somos seguidores de Cristo, y por tanto el proceso de perdón ya ha comenzado”.La diócesis con sede en Baltimore celebró su 228ª. Convención los días 4 y 5 y comenzó con una oración por las víctimas. La Convención aprobó una resolución de condolencia que también pedía a las congregaciones que “tomaran las medidas adecuadas para la seguridad de sus clérigos, administradores y otros miembros del personal”.Al expresar “nuestra profunda inquietud por todas las víctimas de delitos relacionados con armas de fuego” la Convención también dijo en la resolución que “se compromete a reconocer y abordar las necesidades de las personas sin hogar en nuestras comunidades, así como las necesidades de nuestros hermanos y hermanas que padecen enfermedades mentales” y enfrentar y condenar la violencia que infecta nuestra sociedad y relaciones, y a buscar medios pacíficos de abordar el conflicto y la disputa”.“Nuestra iglesia, que la consideramos como un santuario, ha sido violada por esta absurda tragedia, haciéndonos sentir vulnerables, traicionados y airados”, dijo la Convención en el texto en que explicaba la resolución. “Pero nuestra iglesia es también un icono santo, un don al mundo del Dios de amor y de perdón. En este momento de heridas, muerte y quebranto, estamos junto a todas las víctimas y ofrecemos nuestros santuarios como lugares de restauración, dando testimonio de la paz de Dios en medio de la violencia y del inquebrantable amor que Dios tiene por todos”.— La Rda.

Encuentran en las cercanías el cadáver del presunto homicidaPor Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – May0 4 de 2012] Brenda Brewington, asistente administrativa de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Episcopal Church] en Ellicott City, Maryland, la encontraron muerta por heridas de bala dentro de la oficina de la iglesia el pasado 3 de mayo. A la Rda. Dr. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, la co-rectora de la parroquia, la hallaron herida y se encuentra en estado crítico.El presunto asaltante al parecer se suicidó cerca de la iglesia.Un guardián encontró a Brewington, de 59 años, y a Kohn, de 62, alrededor de las 5:20 P.M., dijo  Sherry Llewellyn, portavoz del Departamento de Policía del Condado de Howard, durante un encuentro con la prensa fuera de la iglesia. Según dijo Llewellyn, el guardián llamó al 911.Miembros del Equipo de Armas y Tácticas Especiales (SWAT por su sigla en inglés) encontraron más tarde al cadáver de un hombre no identificado quien, al parecer, se había infligido una herida mortal con una escopeta, según un comunicado de prensa del Departamento de Policía, que también dio a conocer que se había encontrado un arma en las cercanías del cadáver.El cadáver del hombre se halló en unos terrenos boscosos situados detrás de la Iglesia, reportó el noticiero del Canal 8 de la televisión, de Washington D.C.Columbia Patch reportó que el cadáver del hombre se encontró cuando la policía registró minuciosamente la iglesia y sus alrededores en busca de sospechosos.El diario Baltimore Sun informó que la policía anunció alrededor de las 7:45 P.M. que habían encontrado al hombre.“Estamos intentando aún confirmar la identidad del sospechoso”, dijo Llewellyn el 4 de mayo, según informó el Sun. “Esperamos esa confirmación y la notificación a la familia en cualquier momento”.La autora y educadora Diana Butler Bass, que está programada para hablar en la 228ª. Convención de la diócesis [que sesionará] los días 4 y 5 de mayo, dijo en su página de Facebook que el presunto asaltante era “un desequilibrado sin hogar”.Clérigos del personal de la diócesis de Maryland, con sede en Baltimore, acudieron al lugar de los hechos para orar por las víctimas y estar con los feligreses y el personal de la parroquia, dio a conocer la diócesis en una declaración el 4 de mayo. La diócesis retrasó el comienzo de la convención el 4 de mayo a fin de orar por las víctimas. A las personas afectadas por los hechos se les está brindando psicoterapia y hay una capilla disponible auspiciada por [la organización] Las Hijas del Rey, según dijo Sharon Tillman, directora de comunicaciones de la diócesis.Kohn fue trasladada al Centro de Urgencias de Maryland en Baltimore donde se encuentra en estado crítico.La diócesis dio a conocer en un comunicado que se sentía “entristecida por la balacera más allá de lo que las palabras podían expresar”. Cerca de allí, la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal Church], también de Ellicott City, abrió sus puertas el 3 de mayo para “ofrecer un lugar de apoyo y oración”, dijo la diócesis. San Juan también ofreció formalmente oraciones el 4 de mayo, desde el mediodía hasta la 1:00 P.M. en su capilla de la Resurrección. “Son bienvenidos a acudir y a orar por nuestra comunidad y por aquellos que al presente se sienten afligidos”, expresaba la parroquia en la página web principal.Tan pronto como se corrió la voz del hecho de sangre, la página de Facebook de San Pedro comenzó a inundarse de mensajes de condolencia y de promesas de oración. “Serán recordados en la Santa Eucaristía de la conferencia del clero de la diócesis de Vermont”, decía Lee Crawford, miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, en uno de los mensajes. “Que todos ustedes encuentren fuerzas en los días venideros”.Brewington comenzó a trabajar en San Pedro en 2008, según un artículo del boletín de la parroquia publicado en 2010. Ella compartía su tiempo entre la parroquia y su pre-escolar. Era casada y tenía dos hijos que tenían alrededor de veinte años.Kohn vino a San Pedro en 2003 como asistenta del rector, y se convirtió en co-rectora con el Rdo. Kirk Kubicek en algún momento de 2008, según un documento sin fecha que aparece en la página web de la parroquia. Al parecer, en un arreglo presupuestario para permitir que ambos sacerdotes se quedaran, Kubicek aceptó un puesto de media jornada como capellán en la escuela de San Timoteo [St. Timothy’ School] en Stevenson, Maryland. Kohn se proponía comenzar a ejercer consultoría pastoral a media jornada y dijo que tenía una oferta para enseñar consejería pastoral. Los dos le propusieron a la junta parroquial compartir un paquete de compensación.San Pedro ha estado en Ellicott City durante 150 años, según la información de su página web, y está situada aproximadamente a un kilómetro y medio del centro histórico de Ellicott City, que ha sido incluida cuatro veces en la lista de la revista Money de los veinte mejores lugares para vivir [en EE.UU.].

Los pintores hispanos ofrecen observaciones coloridas en la Convención General


first_img Por el personal de ENSPosted Jul 8, 2012 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Enedina Vasquez de San Antonio, Texas, es la pintora en residencia del Equipo de Ministerios Hispano en la Convención General.[Episcopal News Service — Indianápolis] La Convención General es por lo general un mundo de palabras, sin embargo la pintora Enedina Vasquez está ofreciendo una interpretación visual con pinturas coloridas que reflejan su experiencia en la reunión de Indianápolis de este año.Vasquez, quien reside en San Antonio, en la diócesis de West Texas, se encuentra en la Convención como pintora en residencia del equipo de Ministerios Hispanos que dirige el Rdo. Canónigo Anthony Guillen, misionero de los Ministerios para Latinos/Hispanos de la Iglesia Episcopal.Enedina Vasquez ha creado una serie de pinturas que ilustran las “Cinco Marcas de la Misión” de la Comunión Anglicana, las cuales han sido aprobadas por la Iglesia Episcopal como los principios rectores. La Cuarta Marca está ilustrada aquí.El trabajo artístico de Vasquez y sus observaciones escritas pueden encontrarse aquí.Vasquez realizo servicios de similar capacidad en la conferencia de la Nueva Comunidad que se llevó a cabo en San Diego, a principios de este año.Fue en esa conferencia donde Vasquez empezó a dibujar en su iPod observaciones coloridas de los temas que se debatieron en la reunión, los cuales se centraron en los Ministerios Étnicos y Emergentes de la Iglesia Episcopal. Por ejemplo, cuando ella participó en la ceremonia nativoamericana en que bendicen la salvia y el aguar, ella pinto una mata de salvia con gotitas de agua que manaban de esta, con una puesta al cielo azul. Cuando uno de los oradores mencionó que la Iglesia Episcopal debería de “cambiar nuestro contexto o al menos considerar cambiarlo…” Vasquez pinto el escudo Episcopal con solo unos trazos de red, blanco y azul, como si estos se encontrarán en movimiento, fluyendo en el aire.En el segundo día de la Convención General, Vasquez pinto la reacción perpleja de un asistente a la Convención General que estaba tratando de ubicarse.Vasquez es una profesora jubilada, que tiene su negocio propio donde produce piezas de arte en cristal fundido. Su trabajo artístico se ha exhibido en museos muy importantes de los Estados Unidos, México, Japón y Alemania. Ella es además autora con trabajos publicados, poeta y dramaturga. Su obra teatral Te Traigo Estas Flores Y Marshmallow Peeps fue producida por Joseph Papp en el Festival del Teatro Shakespeare en Nueva York.Ella se graduó de la Universidad de Sewanee, Programa de Teología de la Universidad del Sur, y es además miembro de la organización religiosa laica Hijas del Rey [Daughters of the King]“En esta época de tecnología rápida, con jóvenes que envían con rapidez de sus teléfonos textos sobre las noticias del día, sobre lo que les interesa, y sus miedos, entonces la Iglesia Episcopal debe ir en esa dirección para poder captar a los jóvenes para que ellos puedan recibir la buena nueva de Cristo”, dijo Vasquez. “Nosotros debemos crear y enviar noticias que sean instantáneas, al minuto, coloridas, fantásticas, cortas, directas. En el 2012 hay maneras creativas y disponibles en Facebook y Twitter (para mencionar algunos) — y son los artistas quienes a través de la historia han reflejado las noticas verdaderas para todas las edades y épocas”.

W. Mark Richardson, the seminary’s dean and president, has announced.“Julián González offers a fresh new voice in the world of scholarship and teaching in the context of theological education,” Richardson said. “We were impressed with his capacity to communicate some of the going concerns in Old Testament scholarship today.“Julián, a native of Colombia, will bring new cultural awarenesses to bear in our community,” Richardson added. “He is very integrative in his approach to studies in sacred texts, looking for contemporary analogies to the experience of God in the ancient Middle East. It is a hermeneutic of lively immediacy that will bring new insight from scriptural studies.”González, a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, received his Master of Divinity degree from George W. Truett Seminary at Baylor University in 2010. He had previously earned a bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Cali, Colombia in 2006 and worked as a software engineer for Shell Oil in Colombia.“Julián González will make a wonderful addition to CDSP and PLTS as well as the GTU,” said the Rev. Alicia Vargas, interim dean and associate professor of multicultural and contextual studies at PLTS. “He is a Hispanic Theological Initiative Scholar and comes deeply committed to the multicultural study and teaching of the biblical text. He is ready to come to Berkeley and share his exceptional teaching skills and sharp biblical scholarship with PLTS and CDSP students. We await his arrival in the fall with happy anticipation!”González said he came by his interest in the rhetoric of violence through experience. “My country has been in violence since the late 1940s and early 1950s,” he said. “I have had experiences myself that have led to an interest in looking at the texts of violence in the Bible and how we interpret them, how we deal with them and how we use them nowadays.”“Biblical interpretation is never ideologically neutral,” he added. “Neither is the Bible a static artifact, but rather it is a discursive object that is continually recreated and reflected by each receiving community in its own time and place.”González will begin teaching at the seminaries in August.
