Crane and Mafi to help Tigers defend titleCrane and Mafi to help Tigers defend title

first_img Jordan Crane will start for the Tigers on Saturday Jordan Crane and Steve Mafi return to the Leicester Tigers team for the Aviva Premiership semi-final against Northampton Saints at Welford Road tomorrow.After last Saturday’s bonus-point win over London Irish secured a top-place finish in the Aviva Premiership league season for a third successive year, director of rugby Richard Cockerill makes just two changes to his starting line-up, with Crane returning from injury to join skipper Craig Newby and Tom Croft in the back row, and Mafi named at lock.Cockerill said: “Finishing top of the table shows we are a consistent side week in, week out. That is important for us, but now it all comes down to a semi-final and a big game against a Saints side which has proved to be one of the best in Europe this season.“All four of the semi-finals sides have finished the league season in good form and it promises to be a very interesting weekend.“We’ll have another big crowd in at Welford Road, it’s an intense local derby with a big prize to play for so we know we have to be at our best.”Tickets for Saturday’s game are available now from the Tigers ticket office. Prices are from £15 adult, £5 junior. Phone the hotline on 0844 856 1880, call in at Welford Road or book online at the club website www.leicestertigers.comLeicester Tigers (v Northampton Saints, Welford Road, Saturday 3.15pm)15 Scott Hamilton14 Matt Smith13 Manu Tuilagi12 Anthony Allen11 Alesana Tuilagi10 Toby Flood9 Ben Youngs1 Marcos Ayerza2 George Chuter TAGS: Leicester TigersNorthampton Saints 3 Martin Castrogiovanni4 Steve Mafi5 George Skivington6 Tom Croft7 Craig Newby (c)8 Jordan CraneReplacements16 Rob Hawkins17 Boris Stankovich18 Dan Cole19 Ed Slater20 Thomas Waldrom21 James Grindal LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 22 Jeremy Staunton23 Horacio Agullalast_img read more

Photo: Getty Images It’s the final that was predicted but also the final that everyone wanted to see. England will play New Zealand at Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on Saturday night. England‘s game against France was an enthralling battle that highlighted just how competitive women’s rugby can be. It was 3-3 at half-time, with Emily Scarratt and Shannon Izar slotting penalties, and the French had played the more threatening rugby as they punished England’s ill-discipline. The defending champions started the second half strongly, however, and it was they who were working through the phases deep in opposition territory rather than the French. First Scarratt slotted another penalty and then Sarah Bern barrelled over after a series of pick-and-gos close to the French line. Megan Jones, who had pulled off a brilliant try-saving tackle on Julie Annery on the hour mark, added gloss to the victory with a try in the final minute as France spilt the wall when they tried to attack from behind their own line. In the end, England won 20-3 to reach their fifth successive final. Last ditch: Megan Jones with a try-saving tackle on Julie Annery. Photo: Getty ImagesCaptain Sarah Hunter believes England’s rotation policy during the tournament will pay dividends in the final. “I’m ecstatic to get to another World Cup final,” she said. “It will take another step up on Saturday. We still have something left in the tank and that’s what you need in a World Cup final.”And head coach Simon Middleton paid tribute to his squad’s calmness under pressure against France. “They are the last group to panic,” he said. “They know when to step up, they have been in a lot of tough situations this year and have come out on the right side of them all. Now we have one more to do.”The one concern for England is whether Danielle Waterman will be fit for the final. The full-back went off for an HIA in the first half and didn’t return to the pitch. It is unlikely she would be able to pass the head injury protocols to be fit for Saturday’s game against New Zealand given the short turnaround.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREThe Black Ferns’ passage to the final was somewhat easier than England’s as they ran in seven tries against the USA, Portia Woodman scoring four of them in a 45-12 win. The States were competitive and scored a couple of decent tries of their own, with their back three particularly impressive, but were overwhelmed in the final quarter.Having been part of the New Zealand side that failed to reach the last four in 2014, centre Kelly Brazier is delighted to be playing in the final this time. “It’s pretty special,” she said. “I was there in 2014 when we missed out and that feeling never goes. We’re all excited to be in the final and hopefully we can win that cup again.”Over time: Portia Woodman scores one of her four tries against the States. Photo: Getty ImagesWoodman believes the team have improved since losing to England, who are slight favourites to win the final when looking at the Sportingbet odds, in Rotorua in the summer and said: “We’ve had such a long time together now and we’ve worked on things that didn’t go right in the June series. We’re not peaking yet.”The good news for both teams is that the match will be broadcast live on ITV and 5live, which should engage an even larger audience with women’s rugby.“We want to showcase our sport to the widest audience possible and to get prime time support is great,” said Hunter.Green machine: Alison Miller scored a great try for Ireland in their defeat by Australia. Photo: Getty ImagesIn the day’s other play-offs, Ireland lost 36-24 to Australia while Wales were humbled 52-0 by Canada. The Irish and Welsh will now play off for seventh place in the opening game at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday while Canada and the Wallaroos will battle it out for fifth place.Japan and Hong Kong will play off for 11th place after losing to Italy (22-0) and Spain (31-7) respectively, and the two European teams will battle for 9th place.last_img read more

Old Rivalry: England v Australia looks to be a likely quarter-final (Getty Images) Rugby World Cup Knockout Stages: Who Is Playing Who?The 2019 Rugby World Cup knockout stages are now in full swing. Here we break down how the final pool tables were determined and look at who is playing who in the knockout stages…Pool AThis pool was very much up in the air until the final match of the group stages between Japan and Scotland in Yokohama.Ireland secured a bonus-point win over Samoa in Fukuoka on Saturday to guarantee their place in the last eight. This moved them onto 16 points, so they couldn’t be overtaken by Scotland even if the Scots had beaten Japan with a bonus point.Japan needed to pick up at least two points against Scotland to ensure top spot in the pool. Instead, they picked up the maximum of five with a 28-21 bonus-point win that ended the Scots’ participation in the World Cup.History makers: Kenki Fukuoka scored two tries to help secure Japan’s quarter-final place (Getty Images)Related: How the final World Cup pool standings are determinedPool BWith Saturday’s New Zealand v Italy match cancelled due to Typhoon Hagibis, the result was classified as a 0-0 draw and both teams were awarded two points. Therefore the All Blacks are pool winners on 16 points and South Africa the runners-up on 15.A bonus-point win over the All Blacks would have seen Italy reach the quarter-finals (providing New Zealand picked up only one losing bonus point in defeat), but the cancellation of the match denied them that chance. They have, however, secured their place at France 2023 by finishing third in the pool.Homeward bound: Italy players train to face New Zealand but that game has been called off (Getty Images)The match between Namibia and Canada was cancelled on Sunday morning on safety grounds, but neither team could have usurped Italy in third had the game gone ahead. Both teams were awarded two points for a 0-0 draw and Namibia finished fourth in the pool standings thanks to a better points difference than Canada.Pool CBoth England and France had qualified for the quarter-finals before the cancellation of their match in Yokohama, which would have determined who topped the pool. With that now classed as a 0-0 draw, England advanced as pool winners with 17 points and France as pool runners-up with 15.Moving on: France leave their hotel after their game against England was cancelled (Getty Images)In the remaining game in Pool C,  Tonga beat USA 31-19 in Osaka on Sunday to secure fourth spot in the pool standings ahead of the Eagles.Argentina confirmed third place in the pool and thus secured qualification for the 2023 World Cup.Pool DAustralia and Wales are both through to the quarter-finals.Right note: Wales secured top spot in Pool D (Getty Images)Wales needed to secure a minimum of two points from their match against Uruguay in Kumamoto on Sunday to win Pool D. They got the maximum of five with a bonus-point win, albeit an unconvincing one, to top the pool while Australia go through as runners-up. So who will be playing who in the last eight? Here’s a breakdown of the quarter-finals, with UK & Ireland kick-off times, as things stand… Who has made the quarter-finals?

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Follow Ireland to Rugby World Cup France 2023Atonement could be the name of the game for Ireland at Rugby World Cup 2023. An enticing draw sees them return to Bordeaux and Paris, each the scene of unhappy memories during their Rugby World Cup 2007 campaign that ended in elimination at the pool stage.The only other occasion that Ireland failed to make the quarter-finals followed a surprise defeat to Argentina in Lens in 1999, so Andy Farrell’s team will be hoping it’s third time lucky in France at RWC 2023!And what an experience it will be, with Ireland’s pool fixtures including a first Rugby World Cup clash with South Africa and a reprisal of the meeting with Scotland from two years ago.They kick off against a European qualifier in the South-West city of Bordeaux. Known as La Belle Endormie – The Sleeping Beauty – Bordeaux is world-famous for its red wine, such as the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties. The Cité du Vin is a kind of wine theme park or you can venture out to the many vineyards and wine chateaux in the area.A table for two? Le Bocal de Tatie Josée restaurant in Bordeaux, a city that will charm any travellerThe Water Mirror at Place de la Bourse is the most photographed location in Bordeaux while Europe’s largest sand dune, 110m high, is within easy driving distance.Ireland fans will be spoilt because the team’s next venue is scenic Nantes, situated on the Loire river and boasting a royal history. Galleries, museums and castles abound, and you can bring out your inner child at Les Machines de l’ile, a collection of animatronic creatures inspired by the literature of Jules Verne and mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci. Verne was born and bred in Nantes and there’s a museum in his honour.Ireland play another qualifier in Nantes before hitting the capital. Paris, home to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and the most prestigious art museums on the planet, needs no introduction. Whether cruising along the Seine, touring the underground Catacombs or taking in a show at Moulin Rouge, La Ville Lumière provides endless possibilities.The Louvre, the world’s largest art museum, should be on your to-do list when Ireland arrive in ParisIreland’s games against South Africa and Scotland at Stade de France will be monumental encounters to compare with anything the tournament has to offer. “There’s nothing like a Rugby World Cup draw to get the juices flowing, so I’m super excited,” said Farrell after the pools were confirmed. “We’ll have to play some good rugby to get out of the group.” TAGS: Promotion Be there to see the action and savour the atmosphere of one of the great sporting events (Getty Images)Can’t get to the shops?

Masferrer autor de La pluralidad religiosa en México, crisis y proyecciones cree que las estadísticas en su país “hacen aparentar que la Iglesia Católica Romana es más numerosa de lo que es en realidad”.El Comité Judicial del Senado aprobó en votación 13-5 el proyecto enmendado de reforma migratoria avanzando una mejor vía a la ciudadanía para millones de indocumentados. El comité esquivó intentos de dificultarla o descarrilarla garantizando que la próxima vez que se vote, sea el pleno del Senado el que intervenga. Al conocerse el resultado final, muchos en la audiencia, incluyendo inmigrantes que se beneficiarán de la reforma, corearon “Sí se puede, Sí se puede”.El servicio secreto de Venezuela investiga a periodistas, empresarios, políticos y activistas en territorio de Estados Unidos desde al menos 2003, denunció el periódico Diario Las Américas. Reveló que un documento del Servicio Bolivariano de Inteligencia Nacional ordena que se haga un perfil de siete personas, entre ellos los periodistas Gerardo Reyes, director de Univisión Investiga, y Casto Ocando, investigador de dicha unidad de la cadena Univisión. Según el derecho internacional los periodistas no pueden servir de espías en otros países.En una noche llena de emociones, y sobre todo sorpresas, la reina “Nuestra Belleza Latina 2013” de la Cadena Univisión recayó en la joven salvadoreña radicada en Los Ángeles, Marisela Demontecristo. La nueva reina conmovió a los televidentes al narrar su historia de trabajos y pobreza. Algunas personas la apodaron como “La Cenicienta” por su vida humilde y por su sueño de ganar la corona para ayudar a su mamá y operar a su sobrina de 5 años que tiene una condición especial. La elección lleva consigo cerca de medio millón de dólares en premios.Elsa Morejón , esposa del médico disidente cubano Oscar Elías Viscet, dijo en una conferencia de prensa en Miami que el arzobispo de La Habana cardenal Jaime Ortega, “no es capaz de ponerse a favor de los cambios en Cuba, ni de criticar las injusticias  y violaciones de los derechos humanos”.  Añadió que cuando se entrevisto con él en ocasión del arresto de su esposo “me parecía que estaba hablando con un funcionario del gobierno cubano”. “Oscar y yo seguiremos la lucha pacífica”, dijo.Los partidos de oposición en España han criticado la reforma educativa aprobada por el gobierno conservador de Mariano Rajoy que, entre otras medidas, devuelve el valor académico a la asignatura de religión, computándola en la media de calificaciones y para la obtención de becas. El texto debe ahora ser debatido en el Parlamento, donde el Partido Popular de Rajoy tiene mayoría. Algunos críticos de la medida dicen que en la práctica “es un intento de volver al nacional catolicismo de épocas pretéritas”.Anthony Guillén, encargado del ministerio hispano de la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos, ha informado que la Iglesia Episcopal ha establecido en los últimos dos años 23 nuevas congregaciones de habla hispana en lugares donde la población hispana ha aumentado considerablemente. El plan original era establecer un total de 44 congregaciones pero los fondos designados resultaron insuficientes.David Hope, anterior arzobispo de York que sirvió de 1995 a 2005 en la Iglesia de Inglaterra, está en medio de una disputa porque uno de sus sacerdotes fue acusado de abuso sexual y él lo trasladó de parroquia en lugar de notificar a la policía o a las agencias protectoras de niños. El sacerdote en cuestión ya falleció. El mismo Hope dijo en una ocasión que su sexualidad es un área “gris” de su vida y por eso escogió vivir una vida célibe hasta su muerte.El líder de la oposición de Venezuela, Henrique Capriles, dijo recientemente que en las filas del oficialista Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela se ha planteado la posibilidad de un referendo para revocar el mandato del presidente, Nicolás Maduro, según la agencia Efe. “En apenas un mes de la imposición ilegítima de Nicolás Maduro por parte del Consejo Nacional Electoral, hasta en sus propias filas han revivido la figura del revocatorio, porque el pueblo no puede seguir esperando por soluciones que sabe que no le van a llegar desde tamaña pandilla de incompetentes”, escribió Capriles en un artículo publicado en varios diarios locales.PARA PENSAR.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books El Consejo Latinoamericano de Iglesias parece que está pasando por una seria crisis institucional a juzgar por una carta abierta enviada a todas sus iglesias e instituciones miembros. En una reciente reunión de la directiva celebrada en Colombia se decidió que es necesario hacer más efectivo el trabajo del CLAI para lo cual se necesita “un movimiento continental más dinámico, más fraterno y más cercano en su misión con las iglesias y la sociedad”.  La directiva propuso revisar los estatutos y re-estructurar la organización para dar respuesta a los nuevos desafíos de América Latina y El Caribe. También decidió dar por terminada la labor del secretario general Nilton Geise, un clérigo luterano brasileño.  El CLAI es una organización de iglesias y movimientos cristianos que se fundó en Huampaní, Perú, en noviembre de 1982, su misión es promover la unidad entre los cristianos del continente y su oficina central está en Quito, Ecuador.Con una larga ovación fue recibida Lilian Tintori, esposa del opositor venezolano preso Leopoldo López después de un vehemente discurso sobre la situación de Venezuela en el Campus  Wolfson del Miami Dade College. Dijo que el gobierno de Nicolás Maduro “tiene miedo” dialogar con la oposición sin condiciones porque no tiene la razón y el cuadro de destrucción del país es prueba de su ineficiencia. Tintori dijo que los estudiantes continuaban las protestas con renovado valor después de tres meses de lucha. “No somos de ningún partido, sólo queremos una patria libre y soberana”, dijo.Alina Fernández Revuelta, hija natural de Fidel Castro dice en una entrevista que desde que escapó de Cuba a los 38 años de edad en 1993 no ha vuelto a la isla, ni ha visto a su padre. “Yo no regreso a Cuba mientras tenga que pedir permiso para viajar a la isla”, dice con firmeza. Añade que es un derecho humano volver a la tierra donde uno nació “sin permisos especiales”. Con respecto a su padre dice que no lo odia pero que lo considera “una persona con un nivel de crueldad muy elevado”. Añade que nunca la ha llamado y que el día de sus quince le mandó una caja de refrescos como regalo.Albita Rodríguez, la popular cantante cubana dice que fue “un grave error” que después del triunfo de la revolución cientos de artistas y cantantes se vincularon al grupo triunfante. “Ahora están pagando las consecuencias”, dice la cantante que fue muy popular en Cuba. En 1993 no resistió más y marchó al exilio. La decisión fue inspirada por un tío suyo que le dijo que “cualquier proyecto social, filosófico o religioso que divida la familia no puede ser bueno”.El antiguo periódico italiano La Stampa ha publicado una carta al papa Francisco pidiéndole que elimine el celibato sacerdotal. La carta está firmada por 26 mujeres que conviven con sacerdotes y tienen hijos. La carta añade que algunas de ellas viven en relación sentimental con sacerdotes y quisieran hacerlo “sin ocultarse”. Añaden también, que “somos un grupo de mujeres que queremos romper el muro del silencio y vivir el evangelio en el estado conyugal dando  testimonio a nuestros hijos y a la comunidad”.  En el rito latino de la iglesia existe el celibato y la promesa de castidad desde el Concilio de Letrán en 1139. El Vaticano no ha contestado la carta.Colombia está de luto por el accidente en Fundación, un pueblo de la costa atlántica colombiana, donde 30 niños y dos adultos perdieron la vida y 20 resultaron heridos en el incendio de un autobús que llevaba gasolina en un recipiente al descubierto. El grupo regresaba de un culto evangélico cuando ocurrió el siniestro. Las autoridades locales han dicho que aparentemente el chofer del bus violó varias normas de seguridad. El presidente Juan Manuel Santos pidió un minuto de silencio al conocer la noticia.La Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa ha denunciado una competencia artística transmitida por Eurovisión cuando una homosexual austríaca recibió el premio como la mejor canción de la noche. La nota dice que el hecho es un “signo de decadencia moral” y un esfuerzo para introducir nuevos modelos culturales en países como Rusia.La pastora Gloria Rojas, luterana de Chile, ha sido nombrada por la presidenta Michelle Bachelet como capellana del Palacio de la Moneda sede del gobierno de Chile en Santiago.

first_img Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Mark Siegel says: The Rev’d Raymond C. Ball says: January 28, 2015 at 2:34 pm Marcus Borg’s book “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time” brought me back to being a Christian again. For this I am deeply indebted. Tags Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Comments (15) January 22, 2015 at 5:08 pm I am saddened to learn of Dr. Borg’s death. He was a constant companion throughout my ministry, and even though I frequently disagreed with him I truly appreciated his honesty and candor. I also greatly admired his ability to disagree agreeably, a rare gift in our contemporary world. May he rest in peace. Rector Collierville, TN January 22, 2015 at 6:28 pm As Liturgical Assistand and Director of Christian Education at an Anglo-Catholic church in New South Wales, Australia I am, like many Anglican Priests, caught in the unforgiving dilemma of wanting to explore matters such as – there seems not to have been a recognised settlement called Nazareth in Jesus’ time, Crucifixion was a Roman form of Punishment/Intimidation of their ememies and persons were left on the cross, many alive for several days and some rotting there, as a long-term deterent; not cut down afer a few hours as Jesus allegedly was, there has been not one archaeological find to support pesons living on the Sinai peninsula for 40 years, there was nothing substantial for David or Solomon to have been King of around 1000 BC and no trace of any massive temple or palace, the disagreements amongst the Gospel Writers are many and significant. In my short preaching career I gave an homily on the current reading of a passage from Isaiah in which I mentioned that most scholars thought the book of Isaiah to have been composed by three persons at differnet times. A menber/s of the congregation complained against me and my preaching licence was withdrawn. Introducing Liberal Theological views in any meaningful way would result in a halving of our congregtion numbers which would alarm my, or any other, Rector. What can we do to move from the stained glass windows to an intellectually satisfying set of beliefs that would attract thinking seekers back to the church?Dr. John A Page Rector Smithfield, NC John Bunyan says: January 22, 2015 at 10:50 pm I was blessed to be make 3 trips with Marcus and Marisnne. I considered him a friend and a a large part of modern theology that was the base of many ,many teaching with the Churches I served. I always thoughthis was a good part of the group but always had a personal time with his pipe while he was apart of the group.among the crowd. The Church will miss him .with his teaching and his sense of humor. Bill Smith January 23, 2015 at 7:29 pm Marcus gave a challenging series of lectures at St George’s College, Jerusalem during a sabbatical my wife and I had in 1994. He inspired us! We read every one of his books as they were published. They have enriched us. We bless God for his person and his teaching. We thank his wife and family for sharing him with so many with love, Bill & Mary Duff January 22, 2015 at 7:28 pm I attended seminary 2001-2004.Marcus Borghese had a greatImpact on me while there as wellAs afterwards.

Margaret Ayers says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel February 5, 2015 at 9:49 am Sorry George but last night our church’s adult class was anything but boring with lively discussion and full participation. Agree or disagree but Marcus Borg opened up discussion and in his soft spoken way enabled disagreement. We really need those skills in our churches and in the world!A small rural Episcopal mission church is an exciting growing community. Thank you Marcus for your prophetic voice and strong faith, may you now rest in your Savior’s arms ….. Until the discussion beging again! January 30, 2015 at 11:06 am Marcus spoke to the clergy of East Carolina in 2000. At coffee break, he and I reflected on some of the peculiarities of Anglican worship. ” Why is it that we can’t do liturgy without the Confession?We should make it more optional. It would make things more joyous. ” More joyous indeed. What a joyful man! Thank God for Marcus.

I think not all liberal Biblical scholars would agree with all his views on the matters he mentions (though the idea that Isaiah is composed of two or three sources is hardly radical). I have found Marcus Borg’s writings of much value, including his latest book, “Convictions”, but some of the “obituaries” quite inadequate, some patronising or simply ignorant, and lacking in knowledge of what he has written long after the rather silly “Jesus Scholar” voting on the Gospels.

He was one whom I considered a friend, a colleague, and a most important teacher. I sat at his feet at the Cathedral School in Washington (formerly the College of Preachers) for five days in 2006. His lectures were on his book, “The Heart of Christianity: Rediscovering a Life of Faith.” (in his “Concluding Comments,” p. 204 in that book, he quotes from Micah 6:8, which I believe sums up Marcus’ life and work in brief fashion: “… What does the Lord require of you? … To do justice, … To love kindness, … To walk humbly with your God …” That experience and reading some of his books were profoundly mind-transforming for me, and I owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude. Having taught a class on his “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time,” I also know and appreciate his effect on others. His death is such a great loss to so many of us who knew or read him, and indeed to the whole world. May he ” go from strength to strength in God’s nearer presence” and glory.

His lecture on the purity system was so helpful. However one American fundamentalist student was outraged by his lecture and accused him of heresy and ran crying from the room. What amazed me was the gentleness and compassion with which Marcus dealt with her both during her attack and after the lecture. Jesus was truly reflected in his actions. It was a blessing to have that time with him. Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Albany, NY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Knoxville, TN The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Marcus BorgEditor’s note: This story was updated at 10:15 a.m. EST Jan. 23 to include information about a memorial service and additional details.[Episcopal News Service] Marcus J. Borg, a New Testament scholar, theologian and author who was associated for years with the search for the historical Jesus and who sought to put the New Testament in what he believed was its proper context, died Jan. 21.Borg, 72, had been suffering from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, according to an announcement from at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, where he had been a member for years.He died peacefully and without pain at his home in Powell Butte, Oregon, at 7:05 a.m. PST, the Rev. Nathan LeRud, acting cathedral dean, said in the announcement.The Rev. Marianne Borg said “Marcus rose before the sun,” according to the announcement.There will be a memorial service honoring Borg’s life at the cathedral on March 22. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will officiate.“Marcus Borg was a gifted teacher and profoundly significant voice of reasoned faith for many, both in and outside the church,” Jefferts Schori said via e-mail from the Holy Land where she is leading an interfaith pilgrimage. “His teaching and writing led countless numbers of people into deeper and more authentic relationship with the Holy One. His gifts of insight, profound faith, and the ability to show others a path will be greatly missed.”“Marcus also modeled for the world and the church what it is like to build collegial relationships with people who hold deep and differing convictions, and to discover greater truth and friendship in the midst of that kind of dialogue,” she continued. “I had the great privilege to know him as a teacher and a colleague over more than 30 years, and I will miss him deeply. May he rest in peace and edify the angels. Pray for Marianne and his children and give thanks for a life well lived in the search for truth.”Borg, 72,  was a leader in the Jesus Seminar, which worked to construct the life of Jesus through historical critical methods that looked at ancient texts such as the Bible to discern the world they described. The seminar’s fellows voted on the relative authenticity of about 500 statements and events concerning Jesus.The seminar portrayed Jesus as a Jewish wise man and faith healer who traveled the countryside, dining with and healing people whom Jewish dogma and social norms treated as outsiders. This Jesus was seen as a prophet who preached about the possibility of liberation from injustice.Not all theologians and religious scholars agree with the seminar’s approach and findings. Yet others passionately agreed and many Christians credit Borg and others such scholars with reviving their faith.“Very many people who had left the Christian faith have returned to it through Marcus’ evangelism (though he would grimace at my use of the word, I suspect),” the Very Rev. Barkley Thompson, dean and rector of Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, wrote in his blog after learning of Borg’s death. “Marcus was a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ in word and in deed.  He understood Jesus (and especially the Resurrection) differently than I do.  But the veracity of his faith was clear.  And calm.  And passionate.”“Imagine that Christianity is about loving God. Imagine that it’s not about the self and its concerns,” Borg suggested in his last book. Photo: Marcus Borg/FacebookBorg had been national chair of the Historical Jesus Section of the Society of Biblical Literature and co-chair of its International New Testament Program Committee and president of the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars.Borg was installed May 31, 2009, as canon theologian at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, where he had taught frequently and where the Rev. Marianne Borg was on staff at the time. Since their retirement, the Borgs have attended Trinity Episcopal Church in Bend, Oregon.“Adult theological re-education at the congregational level is an urgent need within American churches today,” Borg said at the time. “It is essential to Christian formation. And from my own experience and from a number of studies, I know that it has been a source of re-vitalization in hundreds of congregations around the country.”As a lecturer and author, Borg traveled as much as 100,000 miles a year. He was the Hundere Chair of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University where he taught for 28 years until his retirement in 2007. He was the author of 21 books, including Jesus: A New Vision (1987) and the best-seller Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time (1994); The God We Never Knew (1997); The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions (1999); Reading the Bible Again for the First Time (2001), and The Heart of Christianity (2003), both best-sellers.His latest books are Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most (2014) Speaking Christian (2011); Putting Away Childish Things (a novel – 2010); Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary (a New York Times Best-Seller – 2006); Conversations with Scripture: Mark (2009); and three books co-authored with John Dominic Crossan, The Last Week (2006), The First Christmas (2007), and The First Paul (2009). He is the co-author with N. T. Wright of The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions.In Convictions, a book that he said grew out of a sermon he preached at Trinity Cathedral on his 70th birthday, Borg wrote that there was “nothing remarkable about my life, nothing heroic.” And he said that while it was hard for him to turn 60 because that milestone felt “like the end of potential and the beginning of inevitable and inexorable decline,” turning 70 in 2012 felt “interestingly empowering.”Borg said that from this vantage point he was exploring what it meant to be Christian and American, having been shaped by those two memberships, and more especially “to be Christian and to live in the richest and most powerful country in the world, often called the ‘American Empire.’”He called God “real and a mystery,” in Convictions and asked his readers to “Imagine that Christianity is about loving God. Imagine that it’s not about the self and its concerns, about ‘what’s in it for me,’ whether that be a blessed afterlife or prosperity in this life.”More information about Borg can be found on his website.— Religion News Service contributed to this obituary.

Press Release Service Rector Shreveport, LA January 26, 2015 at 10:42 am I’ve read several of Mr. Borg’s books and heard him lecture once. Though I disagreed with many of his views, I was always impressed by his gentleness and profound faith. He never once tried to eviscerate those who disagreed with him, an increasingly rare and precious virtue. May he rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate Diocese of Nebraska Director of Music Morristown, NJ January 22, 2015 at 11:00 pm Marcus Borg was a prince of a guy. His calm, irenic manner made it easy to listen to his surprising ideas which, however, were based on sound scholarship. I prize “The First Paul,” which he wrote with John Dominic Crossan, and their description of Paul as a “Jewish Christ Mystic.” That helped me make sense of Paul’s Damascus road conversion experience.
