Estos jóvenes entre 14 y 34 años, urbanos, han crecido con la cultura estadounidense y la cultura latina y asisten o planean asistir a las universidades  estadounidenses y representan un tremendo potencial para la Iglesia Episcopal.“Hoy le pido a la Iglesia Episcopal que tome atención al NGL. Estos jóvenes son personas de herencia latina que nació en los EE.UU., o han vivido aquí por más de 15 años y lleva un estilo de vida bilingüe y son biculturales, de padres o abuelos latinos”. Explica Anthony Guillen, Misionero para el Ministerio Latino / Hispano de la Iglesia Episcopal.El Censo del 2010 indica que Estados Unidos es el segundo país latino en el mundo con 50.5 millones de personas, después de México (112.3 millones. En consecuencia en Estados Unidos  1 de cada 6 individuos es latino y 1 de cada 4 niños es latino.“Los NGL tienen lazos muy fuertes con sus padres y con sus valores familiares, estos jóvenes latinos son abiertos a ir a la iglesia porque en su familia se considera que ir a la iglesia es un valor importante”, menciona Anthony Guillen quien hace un alto en las cifras y presenta a los seis jóvenes que lo acompañan en la presentación.Carlos de la Torre, 21 peruano de nacimiento descubrió la Iglesia Episcopal cuando asistía al Manhattanville College en Nueva York; nos cuenta: “La Iglesia Episcopal siempre se hizo sentir bienvenido y nunca me sentí juzgado, tuve la oportunidad de hacer trabajo social en Nueva York, ayudando a la gente de la calle y ahí sentí mi vocación y este setiembre voy a empezar mis estudios en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia”.Luz Cabrera (25), estudia en la universidad de Houston, para a ser Educadora Bilingüe y tiene diez años de ser Episcopal. Ella es encargada del programa de jóvenes de la iglesia San Mateo y ha sido parte de Presencia oficial de jóvenes  en la 77ta Convención general y viene como asistente de los jóvenes en esta convención. “Tengo una comunidad que me apoya y reza por mí”. Cuando le preguntan ¿Cuál cree que es la clave para trabajar con jóvenes en las congregaciones? Ella responde con aplomo: “Consistencia, nosotros  nos reunimos todos los miércoles del año, no hacemos pausas, porque así los jóvenes aprenden que esa reunión es importante. También hay que hacerlo atractivo, los sábados por la mañana  ofrecemos desayuno con donas y estudio bíblico”.Jason Sierra (31) es de la tercera generación mexicano-americano y de la segunda generación de familia episcopal, creció en la diócesis del Oeste de Texas y es episcopal desde el prescolar. Él ha estado envuelto en la iglesia toda su vida, actualmente trabaja para la Iglesia Episcopal como Oficial para el liderazgo y vocaciones de los adultos Jóvenes en la ciudad de Seattle.Nora Viñas (17) es totalmente bilingüe y viene de la diócesis del Sureste de la Florida como parte de la Presencia Oficial de Jóvenes, “Lo que me encanta la Iglesia episcopal porque aprecia los valores y mi cultura latina y me apoya”.Cristopher Romero (16) viene de la Diócesis de Massachusetts, siempre ha estado envuelto en la Iglesia Episcopal pues mi padre es sacerdote y mi abuelo es Obispo episcopal, mi experiencia en la iglesia es muy buena porque mis padres están envueltos en el trabajo de la iglesia, o trabajo con el ministerio de música en mi iglesia y aquí en la convención he ayudado con la Episcopal Web Radio.Adriana Gonzales-Bonillas (16) viene de la Diócesis de Arizona presentó la resolución DO67 como parte de la Presencia oficial de los jóvenes. La cual solicita crear un fondo para estudios superiores para los jóvenes episcopales indocumentados, ella apoyó su resolución, con su talento como oradora, ante el comité de Asuntos Nacionales e Internacionales y ante la Cámara de Diputados, con éxito en ambos escenarios. Hoy se sesiona en la casa de los Obispos la aprobación de esta  importante iniciativa.“No tiene nada de malo ser recién inmigrante, ser pobre o no hablar inglés, solo quiero cambiar ese prejuicio que a veces tiene la gente cuando hablamos de los latinos o hispanos, esta nueva generación de Latinos es diferente”, concluye Guillen.La charla la nueva generación de Latinos  NLG, se presentó el 11 de Julio como una de las actividades de la 77a Convención General  de la Iglesia Episcopal en Indianápolis, organizada por la Comisión Permanente de Pequeñas congregaciones y el Ministerio Latino/Hispano.— Araceli Ma es integrante del equipo del  Episcopal News Service en la Convención General.

Indiana Has A Proud Ethanol History

first_imgAs a result of this growth, Indiana corn farmers have seen significantly higher prices. Parrent said Indiana corn prices are higher because of ethanol, “Our corn prices are 50 cents to as much as a dollar higher than other states like North Dakota because we have this extra demand for our corn.” Indiana Has A Proud Ethanol HistoryTen years ago, the Indiana ethanol industry was just getting off the ground. In the past decade, Indiana has made some amazing progress in building and growing ethanol production. In 2006, Indiana’s first modern ethanol production plant was built in Jasper County, and plants came on-line in many more rural communities over the next two years.  There are now 13 ethanol plants producing over 1.1 billion gallons a year and creating demand for almost half of the state’s corn crop.Ken ParrentKen Parrent, with the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, says a pro-ethanol policy by state government was a major factor in this success story, “Our governors, starting with Mitch Daniels, through Pence and now Holcomb, have been supportive of ethanol in our state.” This support to the formation of economic incentives and policies that fostered the development of the industry.  In addition, Indiana corn farmers have made a major investment in helping to foster the growth of the corn-based ethanol sector. “Over the past 10 years, Indiana has become a national leader in the ethanol industry due to the innovative collaboration of the state’s corn farmers, ethanol producers, fuel retailers, and local governments,” said Mike Beard, vice president of ICGA.
