SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – MAY 19: Berrick Barnes of the Waratahs stretches during a Waratahs Super Rugby training session at Moore Park on May 19, 2011 in Sydney, Australia. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) Berrick Barnes warming upThe off season is the best time to focus on building strength as the stress of collisions and running in games and training is removed.Bjorn Basson during the Vodacom Bulls trainingStrength is one of the most important qualities to train for in rugby as it determines your performance in so many areas of the game. Strength is simply your ability to exert force on an object. The stronger you are the more force you can exert.Maximal strength is the base upon which speed, power, endurance and most physical qualities are built. The stronger you are the faster you can run, the harder you can tackle and the easier you will find it to last 80 minutes.Many programs claim to improve strength but work in repetition ranges and use weights that are not maximally effective for building strength. In order to improve your maximal strength you should use the 3 to 5 rule.3 to 5 exercises for 3 to 5 sets of 3 to 5 reps, for example:Session 1:Squat – 3 sets of 5Bench Press – 3 sets of 5Deadlift – 3 sets of 3Session 2: Powerclean – 5 sets of 3Squat – 3 sets of 5Push Press – 3 sets of 3Weighted Chin ups – 3 sets of 5Exercises used should be compound movements (involving more than one joint e.g. hip, knee and ankle in a squat) using free weights. Add enough weight that the last rep of the last set is a struggle but does not ruin your form. If you train 2 or 3 times in one week you will be able to cover each of the 6 movement patterns. For a list of exercises to draw from have a look at the Guide to Strength and Conditioning article.Order the exercises by performing the ones that are most complex and involve most muscle first and try to alternate between movement patterns as in the examples above.Prepare yourself by each exercise by starting with just a barbell or very light dumbbells and adding weight over several sets until you reach the weight you will use for 3 to 5 sets of 3 to 5 reps. This way you can rehearse the movement and be sure that the relevant joints, muscles and tendons are prepared for the exercise.Make sure to use progressively heavier weights as long as you can maintain form.

DUBLIN, IRELAND – NOVEMBER 24: Referee Nigel Owens and All Black captain Richie McCaw during the International match between Ireland and the New Zealand All Blacks at Aviva Stadium on November 24, 2013 in Dublin, Ireland. (Photo by Phil Walter/Getty Images) ‘Super Cooper’: Quade is back in the Wallaby fold after a series of sensational performances over the AutumnBy Owain JonesThe comeback kid award: Quade CooperIN THE summer, Quade Cooper, the enigmatic, tormented Wallaby five-eighth had a very public falling-out with Robbie Deans, the Wallaby coach. After labelling the camp, ‘toxic’, he, unsurprisingly, found himself out in the cold and omitted from the squad to face the Lions. Fast-forward five months and ‘Super’ Cooper is back in the groove with a coach who believes in him. Ewen McKenzie, his coach at the Reds, has backed his man and his performances have seen the plaudits raining down. His side-stepping, slick-passing, showboating masterclass against Wales was nothing short of sensational and rugby will hope he can sprinkle some of his unique stardust on RWC 2015Bloodied but unbowed: Hartley is backAward for services to charity: Dylan HartleyLike Cooper, Hartley is another individual who has come back with this resolve redoubled following a summer full of angst and soul-searching. Infamously red-carded in the Aviva Premiership final for a potty-mouthed outburst in full earshot of the referee, Hartley was suspended the Lions tour and has since candidly admitted to considering his playing future. Fortunately for England, he took off on his travels and came back stronger for the experience. His performances through November, most notably against New Zealand, were inspirational and, for now, he has wrestled the No 2 shirt back off Tom Youngs. Cementing his, bad-boy turned good, rehabilitation act, he was also the top fundraiser for the Movember charity initiative. Chapeau Mr Hartley, it’s good to have you back.Best impersonation of an exocet missile award (with a blond wig): Richard HibbardYes, you’ve guessed it’s the blond bombshell from Port Talbot who has continued his thunder-clap tackling from the summer and thrown himself about with barely concealed zeal at anything in an opposition shirt. A bombastic force of nature throughout the Series, he saved his best for last with a hit of such ferocity on Wallaby No 8 Ben Mowen that you’d swear players around him winced. There’s simply no need to ask Hibbard if he munched his three Shredded Wheat on matchday morning, he happily consumes six. Frightening.Award for ruining Irish publicans takings: New ZealandIreland were seconds away from setting off the biggest shindig in their rugby history when Ryan Crotty was released by Dane Coles to scamper over in the corner for the All Blacks. A quick scan around and you’d have seen a mass of green bodies crestfallen on the turf. What you won’t have seen is thousands of publicans around the city face-palming instantaneously at the loss of earnings. Ireland had played the rugby of their lives, galloping to a 19-0 lead, but what was left at the death, in a crowd of 50,000, was an eerie silence. Rugby, bloody hell!Vice-like grip: Etzebeth puts pressure on WarburtonInnovative use of marketing award: The All Blacks LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Man in the middle: Nigel Owens has refereed expertlyAward for the best disguise (in not conforming to national stereotype): FranceLes Bleus are feeling, well, bleu. They have won only two Tests in the calendar year, and these were against Scotland and Tonga. They were insipid and unimaginative against South Africa, ponderous until far too late against New Zealand and are still to find an indentifiable pattern of play after two years under Philippe Saint-Andre. The brand of rugby they are playing is no longer, well, French. There’s a lack of derring-do, guile and cunning. Hell, it’s all so predictable, which is a damning indictment when you have the likes of Wesley Fofana and the upcoming Jonathan Pelissie and Gael Fickou at your disposal. Come on Philippe, Vive la France! The pubs and clubs of Earls Court, let alone Christchurch and Auckland, were bouncing when the All Blacks performed their Houdini act against Ireland in the late, late show, but while their fans raised a toast to McCaw, Read and co. those canny marketers were up to something, well, rather clever. The following day, if you wanted to find out about their peerless achievement, you’d soon see their unique url wwwwwwwwwwwwww.allblacks.com. Impudent, with a flicker of arrogance, but who can blame them? They’re the world’s best. Period.Award for services to dumbells: Eben EtzebethEtzebeth looks like he’s been hewn out of high veld granite. Patently someone who took lifting barbells in his bedroom as a teenager to a new level, at 6ft 8in, and a few pounds shy of 20st, Etzebeth crashes and bashes round the pitch like someone has stolen his favourite toy. If he isn’t scragging an opponent by the scruff of the neck or picking the ball out 10ft up in the skies, he’s tossing the smaller boys around like rag dolls. Now on an enforced injury lay-off, after picking up an injury against France, no gym will be out of bounds and he’s sure to come back even bigger. Big Bakkies B will surely approve.Most inventive use of positive spin award: Scott JohnsonThe wily old larrakin was at his verbose best after Scotland had come up short against his Australian compatriots by jaunting into the press room and helpfully proffering that the, ‘Murrayfield light show was pretty impressive’ to a set of steely, hardened journalists. They laughed, politely, but the general consensus was that they’d have preferred to have seen fireworks from Scotland’s nervous backline. Must try harder.Award for improbably making referees likeable: Nigel OwensHe may not have Steve Walsh’s debonair good looks (in fact, who has?), or boast Alain Rolland’s implacable nose for controversy but Owens is carving out a niche as the game’s favourite referee. Roundly applauded for letting the game flow in the epic Test between New Zealand and South Africa at the end of The Rugby Championship. Owens yet again showed his control, common-sense and innate feeling for the game as he expertly oversaw the Autumn’s standout game, between Ireland and the All Blacks. Stop it, Nigel, you’re giving referees a good name…
LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Advantage: Pro12Sean Cronin vs Jamie GeorgeGeorge is unlucky to play in the same position as the England captain and were it not for that, he would be front and centre of England’s revolution under Eddie Jones. His ability with ball in hand is comparable to the mobile Cronin’s, whilst his defence and set-piece work exceed that of the Irishman.Advantage: PremiershipWP Nel vs Dan ColePossibly the two most adept scrummaging tightheads in world rugby right now, it’s hard to separate Nel and Cole. Cole offers a little more at the breakdown, whilst Nel has looked to be the more durable of the pair over the last few seasons. The Lions are in the luxurious position of being able to pick between the two but for the purposes of this comparison, Nel’s importance to Edinburgh just gives him the nod over Cole.Advantage: Pro12Iain Henderson vs Maro ItojeTwo young second-rows whose dynamism and physical skills are redefining the position. In addition to remarkable physical ability, Itoje has the technical skills and leadership traits to be one of the very best in the world. Both players can also play at blindside flanker but only one can excel in that more mobile, energy-demanding role.Advantage: PremiershipGrowing in stature: Maro Itoje of Saracens is one of the hottest properties in rugbyAlun Wyn Jones vs George KruisAnother really hard contest to call. Based on form over the last 12 months, Kruis would probably get the nod but the abilities of Jones are hard to deny. If Kruis continues to dominate for both Saracens and England this spot could be his in a month or two, but for now it remains with Jones, who will need a big year with the Ospreys and Wales not to be left behind by the English lock pairing.Advantage: Pro12Sam Warburton vs Chris RobshawThe emergence of Ellis Jenkins seems to have pushed Warburton over into the six jersey for the Cardiff Blues. He has impressed just as much there as he did in the seven jersey and the Blues are riding high on the performances of their impressive back row. Robshaw is an underrated and underappreciated player but often performs at his best on the Test stage, rather than the domestic one.Advantage: Pro12Justin Tipuric vs Francois LouwTwo skilful, dynamic fetchers and there is very little between them at club level. Louw is comfortably the superior Test flanker but the disparity between the two domestically is very small. Tipuric offers slightly more in the loose but as a force at the contact area, Louw has the edge and that’s enough to give him the overall nod. A fit Marcell Coetzee could change the outlook at this position next year.Advantage: PremiershipCJ Stander vs Billy VunipolaThese two would have been good candidates for their respective Player of the Season awards last season and both are integral to their sides. Stander put Munster on his shoulders at times last season, whilst Vunipola was a driving force behind Saracens’ historic double. The freedoms of club rugby, as opposed to Test rugby, allow Vunipola to be at his very best and that leans this contest in his favour.Advantage: PremiershipFinal score Alex Shaw takes a look at the best of the Premiership and Pro12, coming up with his own all-star side from the head-to-heads between the leagues TAGS: Highlight Aviva Premiership star: Bath star Semesa Rokodunguni is in fine form The Guinness Pro12 takes an inordinate amount of flak from fans and media alike and is generally regarded as the poorer cousin of the Aviva Premiership.The teams at the bottom of the competition are considered inferior to the teams at the bottom of the Premiership, whilst there is no team in the cross-border tournament that can compare to Saracens in terms of ability.Bigger budgets mean greater depth, smaller travelling distances between clubs bring greater attendances and a healthy TV deal all add up to put the Premiership clubs in prime position to be successful.In terms of individuals, however, the disparity between the two leagues is less clean cut. At the pinnacle of each position, the two competitions shape up a little more evenly.Having compiled composite XVs, based on ability over recent seasons and current form, from the two competitions – All-star teams if you will – we compare the two leagues.Quick to settle: Ulster’s Charles Piutau has caught the eyeCharles Piutau vs Alex GoodeMike Brown may be England’s full-back but in terms of performances at Premiership level, Goode just pips him. Regardless, both players come up just short against former All Black Piutau and even the most ardent Premiership fans will be forced to agree, having seen the Kiwi light up the competition last season.Advantage: Pro12Tommy Seymour vs Semesa RokoduguniTwo players currently in the form of their lives. The tries give it to Seymour but in terms of overall impact, not to mention quality of opposition faced and performances put in against them, Rokoduguni just nips ahead of the Scotsman. There is very little in it but the Fijian-born flier is quite possibly the form winger in the northern hemisphere at time of writing.Advantage: PremiershipMark Bennett vs Elliot DalyMirroring the Goode decision, Daly’s Premiership form is second to none at his position, even though Jonathan Joseph is the man preferred/better-suited to Test rugby. As great as Daly’s impact is for Wasps, Bennett’s is just as significant for Glasgow and his defensive work just shades this match-up in his favour.Advantage: Pro12Pass it on: Brad Barritt one of the key components at SaracensFrancis Saili vs Brad BarrittSaili provides the Munster back line with some much-needed creativity and contributes in a very different fashion to the way Barritt does at Saracens. That said, the defensive work, hard yards and leadership that Barritt provides Saracens with is unmatched in both competitions and he is an integral part of their recent successes. Both Matt Toomua and Kurtley Beale could be in this conversation soon.Advantage: PremiershipCraig Gilroy vs Christian WadeTwo players who haven’t quite been able to crack international rugby and secure a regular Test jersey but who light up their respective competitions on a weekly basis. Wade has his detractors but when you see the tries he scores, often created from nothing, it tips this contest in his favour. Gilroy is a fine winger but would not be able to finish a significant amount of the chances that Wade does.Advantage: PremiershipJonathan Sexton vs Owen FarrellA couple of years ago this would have been a landslide in favour of Sexton but over the last two seasons Farrell has developed into one of the leading fly-halves in world rugby. Sexton probably creates more tries with the Leinster back line, partly due to the style of Saracens’ play, but in terms of overall ability, the apprentice has become the master in this match-up of 2013 British and Irish Lions.Advantage: PremiershipRuan Pienaar vs Ben YoungsThe Pro12 will be a lesser place when Pienaar departs at the end of this season. He has been a fantastic servant to Ulster and controls a game better than anyone else in the competition. Youngs is probably the Premiership’s equivalent of Pienaar, controlling the game particularly well, but his domestic form doesn’t compare to Pienaar’s, even if he does tend to have more impact at Test level.Advantage: Pro12Rising reputation: Leinster’s loosehead Jack McGrathJack McGrath vs Mako VunipolaA really tough one to call. Do you give more weight to the work in the loose Vunipola does for Saracens or for the set-piece foundation McGrath gives Leinster? A prop’s first and most important duty should always be the set-piece and that’s enough to just give McGrath the edge. Pro12 – 7Premiership – 8
Front runner: Alun Wyn Jones has been namechecked as a likely Lions captain Talk to anyone at Northampton about Hartley’s stint there as club captain and they will tell you stories about he organised barbecues for academy players at his house to make them feel welcome. More to it than tossing a coin then and Hartley is obviously a good captain but he might not even make the plane for the Lions.Alun Wyn Jones, who recently took over the Wales job from Sam Warburton, is another bloke who claimed the captaincy would not change him and he had a good group of senior players to help him out.The reluctant captain: Sam Warburton was happy to be surrounded by leadersThe second row is one of the first names on the Welsh team-sheet and he has been as good as his word. He put his normal shift in in Wales’ first game against Italy as if the captaincy was no great burden at all and he is a front runner to lead the Lions. He will make the squad, he has done it before, in the last Test in 2013, and would be respected by all the squad. Three massive ticks.And it is not the burden it was back in the day when players did not get paid. Then the skipper was virtually the coach, he took training in the 1960s, sometimes as an act of subterfuge because amateurs were not supposed to meet up too early in the week, and was everything from spokesman to chief bottler washer.Nowadays the captain has all manner of people to support him. He is the link from the squad to what is normally a massive coaching team – Eddie Jones has a back room staff of more than 20 – so a lot of what the captain used to do back in the day is taken care of. The modern captain has just one job to do – and that is to lead and that is not just for 80 minutes at the weekend.Respect: The hugely experienced Rory Best led Ireland to a win over New ZealandIreland skipper Rory Best has been touted as potential Lions captain, and he has a win over the All Blacks on his CV, but is anyone coming up the rails apart from the three favourites?It does not take a massive leap of faith to see Warburton being asked to do the job again and he is in single figure odds with the bookmakers but what about Owen Farrell? He has done the job for Saracens, is an England vice-captain, will be captain sooner or later and is nailed on for a Test berth. With the Six Nations up and running all the chat has been about captaincy but how important is the role of the skipper and who will get the Lions job this summer? Martin Johnson always reckoned that us lot in the media made too much of the role of a captain – he said he had a team of leaders around him anyway when England were in their pomp – but we still can’t stop talking about it.Cricket captaincy is in the news as well with Alastair Cook giving up the England job but in cricket the top job is a lot different to the one in rugby. Johnson always gave the impression that all he did was to do the toss, lead the team out, talk to the ref and do a bit of press. There has to be more to it than that.Alf Ramsey, as we have noted before, said football managers got too much credit for wins and took much flak for defeats – maybe the same can be said of rugby skippers. Just ask Chris Robshaw.A quick look at the World Cup winning captains in rugby – David Kirk, Nick Farr-Jones, Francois Pienaar, John Eales, Johnson, John Smit and Richie McCaw – shows them to be pretty special men but most importantly they were pretty special players. Whoever captains the Lions in New Zealand this summer had better be a pretty special player as well.Leading by example: Martin Johnson led both the Lions and England with aplombWe are always told the most important thing for a captain is to be sure of his place in the side but that does not always apply as recent events may have shown.Dylan Hartley, England’s leader, has been under the microscope because he was banned and out of the game for eight weeks before their opening Six Nations match against France and some thought any amount of leadership skills could not make up for lack of match hardness.Eddie Jones disagrees. He claimed that England have so few leaders – there are not many Dallaglios, Dawsons, Greenwoods and Wilkinsons in the current lot says Jones – so he has to have his skipper on board 24/7. Jamie George, the form English hooker of the last few months, probably shakes his head at that one but it is just tough.King Eddie also says that most people don’t see most of what a captain does. He told us recently that one player had to be pulled into line for turning up late for something and Hartley was the man who did it.Natural-born leader: Dylan Hartley isn’t afraid to pull team-mates up for time-keeping“Young people do not like doing that,” said. “It is a skill we have to teach players and a process. It has to be dealt with.“The reality of elite sport now is that players come through academies and are told what to do every day. You have to find ways of overcoming it otherwise you end up with teams that cannot make decisions. They need to stand on their own two feet.” So there really is more to it than tossing a coin, talking at a microphone and communicating with the referee. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS But most of the money is on Alun Wyn.He seems to have got all the credentials for being a good captain. Whatever they really are.

That tournament highlighted to me what I needed to work on. I think I became too focused on the physical side of my game and as a team we probably didn’t spend enough time working on the technical side, the skill-set side.Have you always been a back-row? I was a prop for a while when I was younger but back-row is the position I love the most. Openside is where I’m happiest. I like being involved in everything. I’m not the biggest No 7 so growing up I always looked at Michael Hooper and, more locally, I looked at Hamish Watson and John Hardie. ‘Mish is incredible. He just wants to dominate his opposite man.What do you outside rugby? I’m studying business management at Heriot-Watt University so between that and rugby it’s full-on. I used to play guitar in a band but I don’t have time anymore.RW VERDICT: A Scotland U18 and U20 captain, he’s clearly a leader with a pretty dynamic game. He’s learning every day from the likes of Hamish Watson, Jamie Ritchie, John Barclay and Bill Mata. One to look out for. Scotland U20 captain Connor BoyleDate of birth 19 February 2000 Born Livingston Position Openside Club Watsonians Country ScotlandWhere did it all start for you? I went to school at Stewart’s Melville in Edinburgh, then started playing for Watsonians. I’m in the Edinburgh Academy now and I’m lucky to train with brilliant back-rows Monday to Friday. As an openside flanker, I’m not short on guys I can learn from. The problem is how do I get past them and get some game time.You won’t turn 20 until February, you’ve got time… Yeah, I’m in a great place. Richard Cockerill says work hard and know your detail and the chance will come. I got to play London Scottish in a pre-season friendly, but I’d like a few first-team games in 2020. That’s one of the ambitions. Cockers doesn’t have a problem putting in younger guys. I just have to make sure I’m ready.And your other ambitions?I was captain of Scotland U20 last year and we had some challenges. The Six Nations was tough for us (they won one game) and so was the World Cup (they got relegated). It was a massive honour leading my country but we didn’t perform the way we wanted to. I had to deal with that and put it behind me.

Munster captain Peter O’Mahony was then sent off, yet the 14 men fought back to snatch victory with a last-gasp long penalty.“I’m not going to lie, it has hurt a lot,” admitted Scarlets backs coach Dai Flanagan. “There was a lot of good in the Munster game, we controlled lots of elements, but those last few moments of the match we have to improve on. We believe we can beat anyone on the day.”Taking command: Scarlets wing Steff Evans catches a high ball against Munster last weekend (Inpho)Each side has made three changes from their starting XV in the season opener. For Scarlets, tighthead Samson Lee makes his 150th club appearance having missed the Munster game with a head injury. Johnny Williams comes in for Steff Hughes in midfield while Ryan Elias steps in for club captain Ken Owens. Jonathan Davies skippers the side.Full-back Leigh Halfpenny, who kicked a record-breaking nine penalties against Munster, is one of 13 Scarlets who was named in the Wales squad for the autumn Test programme. Others include two uncapped players in openside Josh Macleod and scrum-half Kieran Hardy, respectively a starter and replacement today.Glasgow give prop Zander Fagerson and openside Tom Gordon a first start of the campaign.

Ratu Tagive gets a start on the wing while Richie Gray will make his 50th appearance in a Warriors jersey should he be deployed from the bench.Unfamiliar position: Huw Jones is making a fine fist of the full-back role for Glasgow Warriors (Inpho)Head coach Danny Wilson said: “It’s great to welcome Tom and Zander back into the starting line-up. Scarlets like to play a similar style of attacking rugby to ourselves and it should make for an entertaining game. Everyone is really excited to get back out playing at Scotstoun after such a long time away.”The Warriors this week strengthened their back-row resources after agreeing a loan deal for hard-hitting Samoa flanker TJ Ioane, who has made the move from London Irish.Today’s teams also met in round two last season. Scarlets emerged 25-21 victors after resisting a late fightback by Glasgow when down to 14 men, Macleod having been dispatched to the sin-bin. That match was played without a raft of international players, Glasgow alone losing 16 players to the World Cup. Watch highlights of that match here.Glasgow: Huw Jones; Tommy Seymour, Nick Grigg, Stafford McDowall, Ratu Tagive; Adam Hastings, Ali Price; Oli Kebble, Fraser Brown (capt), Zander Fagerson, Rob Harley, Scott Cummings, Ryan Wilson, Tom Gordon, Matt Fagerson.Replacements: 16 George Turner, 17 Aki Seiuli, 18 D’arcy Rae, 19 Richie Gray, 20 Chris Fusaro, 21 George Horne, 22 Pete Horne, 23 Niko Matawalu.Scarlets: Leigh Halfpenny; Tom Rogers, Jonathan Davies (capt), Johnny Williams, Steff Evans; Dan Jones, Gareth Davies; Wyn Jones, Ryan Elias, Samson Lee, Jake Ball, Sam Lousi, Blade Thomson, Josh Macleod, Sione Kalamafoni.Replacements: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Phil Price, 18 Javan Sebastian, 19 Lewis Rawlins, 20 James Davies, 21 Kieran Hardy, 22 Rhys Patchell, 23 Steff Hughes.Here’s how to find a reliable live stream for Glasgow v Scarlets wherever you are…How to watch Glasgow Warriors v Scarlets from outside your countryIf you’re abroad but still want to watch your local Pro14 coverage, like Glasgow v Scarlets, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Pro14 live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.

Bonnie Perry, rectora de la iglesia de Todos los Santos en Chicago, practicar kayak en las violentas aguas del lago Michigan mitiga el estrés de navegar por rutas igualmente agitadas de la vida parroquial.“Es una locura que haya jóvenes a los que asesinan habitualmente en las calles de Chicago”, dijo la rectora de la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints Church] en Chicago durante una entrevista reciente con el Episcopal News Service. “Si estás continuamente inmersa en ese tipo de tristeza y de pena, terminas desmoralizada”.Renueva tu espíritu “remar y traer gente a lugares agrestes de la costa del lago Superior, o a Escocia, donde la mayoría nunca ha ido y es [un lugar] asombrosamente inspirador”, dijo ella. “El océano es inmenso, y uno no puede controlarlo. Tienes que estar atenta al momento y responder al medio ambiente”.Perry y otro clérigo episcopal dicen que sus hobbies los ayudan “vivir una vida fuera de la Iglesia” y en ocasiones [esa experiencia] los devuelve nuevamente a ella.El clero y los demás necesitan una “desconexión” entre lo que son y lo que hacen, según Elaine Hollensbe, asesora de CREDO, un programa del Grupo de Pensiones de la Iglesia que durante 15 años le ha brindado oportunidades al clero y a algunos laicos empleados de la Iglesia de examinar áreas específicas de sus vidas y re-generar su pasión y su compromiso con la salud y el bienestar [físico y mental].“Debes crearte un lugar para ti donde exista un equilibrio entre tus propios intereses, características y anhelos individuales y los del colectivo, que en este caso sería el sacerdocio”, dijo Hollensbe, profesora adjunta de administración en la Universidad de Cincinnati.Algunos clérigos a los que ella ha entrevistado “se sentían bastante bien con sólo decir, muy bien, en este momento soy padre, no sacerdote. Pero algunos otros sacerdotes no podían hacer eso”, comentó ella.“Si no puedes, experimentas muchísimo estrés, y no tienes una idea de ti mismo que no sea la de tu trabajo. Es importante que las personas encuentren un nivel de equilibrio para hallar una identidad separada que los rejuvenezca, de manera que cuando contribuyan al colectivo tengan la energía y la reserva para hacerlo”, añadió.El pasatiempo y la vocación de Perry, kayaquista desde 1995, a veces coinciden. En Pascua, dijo ella, “Jesús se levantará de los muertos y… tomaré un avión y dirigiré un retiro de kayak para mujeres en Baja [California], México.”Ella comenzó a enseñar y adiestrar “realmente en serio” a otras personas en el deporte hace unos siete años. Ha ganado numerosos galardones y es una de las cuatro mujeres en Norteamérica certificadas como Líder de 5 Estrellas en el Mar de la Unión Británica de Canoa “que es algo bastante oscuro, pero realmente importante si entiendes de lo que estoy hablando”, agregó.“Tratar de mantener a ocho personas a salvo en su propia embarcación en medio de vientos de 20 nudos y olas de dos metros… confluye con lo que hago en la congregación, al tratar de resolver la mejor manera de dirigir para que la gente tengan el máximo de diversión, sin que lleguen a estrellarse contra las rocas”, señaló ella. “Pero no puedes controlarlo, puedes dirigir y ofrecer sugerencias”.Algunas personas vienen a Todos los Santos debido a la “conexión con el remo”, apuntó ella.Y hay otras formas en que su vocación y sus pasatiempos se unen. “El año pasado, uno de mis estudiantes murió mientras remaba alrededor del lago Superior. Yo no estaba allí, él estaba haciendo un viaje solitario. De manera que terminé celebrando un oficio en su memoria en uno de nuestros simposios. No es un deporte sin riesgos, poro uno trata de atenuarlos”.‘Uno-dos por el Señor’ – Boxear en HoustonEl Rdo. Patrick Miller, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Marcos [St. Mark’s Episcopal Church] en Houston, dicen bromeando que en principio él comenzó a boxear luego de algunas excesos de reuniones de la sociedad del altar.“Participaba de estas reuniones y me enfurecía, y enfurecerse en una reunión de la sociedad del altar no es correcto”, dijo Miller, de 46 años, durante una reciente entrevista por teléfono.Daba la casualidad que su anterior iglesia estaba localizada justo enfrente del Gimnasio Principal de Boxeo de Houston. Se acercó un día y decidió intentar boxear como una disciplina cuaresmal y por el ejercicio.Una vez dentro del ring, descubrió que el deporte “es increíble”, dijo. “Los entrenamientos son increíbles. La gente es increíble. Adquirí con eso una increíble cantidad de sabiduría. Quiero a mi iglesia. Quiero a la gente de mi iglesia. Pero esto no es una iglesia, es un ambiente completamente diferente”.Y si bien [boxear] no responde exactamente el llamado del evangelio a poner la otra mejilla, él ha “disfrutado encontrando a Dios en lugares donde no lo esperaba”, dijo Miller, quien parafrasea otro de los mantras del boxeador ‘de lucha, siempre en la lucha’: “siempre estamos en la lucha, los pobres siempre están en la lucha”.“En el boxeo, hay asaltos de tres minutos con un minuto de descanso”, explica él. “Si tomas eso como una metáfora del vivir, ves que hay ciertos períodos de tiempo en nuestras vidas en que tenemos que estar en la lucha, y otros momentos en que tenemos que descansar, tienes que aprovechar ese descanso para poder mantenerte en la lucha”.Él señaló otros dichos del boxeo: “mi entrenador aborda [el tema de] la identidad. Me dirá: ‘Patrick, tengo un mal día, pero sabes qué. Sigo siendo Bobby Benton y voy a estar muy bien’”.Miller recibe una amistosa provocación que su veloz combinación, una ráfaga de golpes de izquierda y derecha, convierten en “uno-dos por el Señor.”Entre tanto, algunos de sus compañeros del ring se han convertido en feligreses. Algunos piden oraciones antes de una pelea y durante los retos de la vida, como divorcios y muertes en la familia, señaló Miller.La experiencia le ha dado a Miller una nueva perspectiva respecto a cómo comportarse durante las reuniones de la iglesia. Recientemente, contó, “en medio de una pelea, enfrentándote con alguien que trata de golpearte y tu tratas de golpearlo”, oyó la voz de su entrenador: “Desacelera. Respira. Esquiva. Avanza sobre él. Piensa siempre lo que va a pasar después”.Boxear lo ayuda a escuchar atentamente durante las reuniones de la iglesia, dijo. “Ahora voy a esas reuniones de la sociedad del altar y ya no me enfurezco”.Patrullar pistas de esquiar en OhioLa mayoría de los sábados por la noche, de diciembre a marzo, la Rda. Gay Jennings comienza un turno de ocho horas —no como sacerdote, sino patrullando las pistas de esquiar cerca de su casa suburbana de Cleveland.“La gente dice, ‘¿esquías en Ohio?’ Hay dos áreas de esquiar a unos cinco kilómetros de mi casa, en el Parque Nacional del Valle de Cuyahoga, un valle surgido de un glaciar, y hay zonas de esquiar a ambos lados del valle”, dijo Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados de la Iglesia Episcopal, durante una reciente entrevista telefónica. Son pequeñas. Decimos que es mejor que no esquiar”.Ella se enfunda en ropa muy abrigada, botas y chaqueta de patrulla, se abrocha la mochila de patrullar y se ajusta sus esquís en preparación para un turno de voluntarios que puede ser impredecible.A veces “es como una unidad MASH”, dijo ella, refiriéndose a las unidades quirúrgicas móviles del Ejército que se usan para emergencias en las líneas del frente. “Por ser los primeros en responder [a una urgencia], ella y su equipo de unas 10 personas reciben un extenso entrenamiento fuera de temporada en primeros auxilios y como técnicos en atención de emergencias a campo raso.“Esquiamos y vigilamos las pistas para cerciorarnos de que están seguras”, dijo Jennings. “Las lesiones pueden variar desde alguien que viene al cuarto de patrulla y pide una curita hasta una lesión grave en la cabeza o un fémur roto, lo cual exige sacar a la persona de la pista rápidamente y ponerla a salvo de manera que el próximo nivel de asistencia médica de urgencia pueda transportarla a un hospital”, explicó ella.Cuando comenzó de voluntaria hace 23 años, Jennings, que actualmente tiene 62 años, era canóniga del ordinario en la Diócesis de Ohio. Su vida parecía como si “todo fuera la iglesia”.En la patrulla, ha servido con el mismo equipo “ecléctico” —un arquitecto, un mecánico, un ingeniero, estudiantes universitarios, un coordinador comunitario— durante unos 15 años.“Algunos de nosotros asisten a la iglesia, y algunos de nosotros ni se acercarían por una iglesia”, dijo ella. “Nos cuidamos mutuamente dentro y fuera de las pistas. Comemos juntos, cada cual trae lo suyo y lo compartimos. Es como en la iglesia”.Su participación ha dado lugar a que le pidan que oficie en funerales y bodas de otros patrulleros de esquí a través de los años, y ella cree que ser parte del grupo la ha hecho una mejor sacerdote.Me ha “proporcionado recreación, fraternidad, amigos, un equilibrio en mi vida. Me ha obligado a ejercitarme, aunque a veces es atrozmente frío”, apuntó. “Me ha hecho una mejor sacerdote en el sentido de que me saca de la iglesia. Obviamente, eso [la iglesia] es el primer foco de mi vocación y ministerio, pero creo que uno puede tener algo bueno en demasía. Para mí, pues, el patrullaje de esquí me proporciona equilibrio y me divierte mucho”.Carpintería en San DiegoEl trabajo artesanal de planificar, serruchar, lijar, ensamblar y terminar un mueble ha sido un pasatiempo para el obispo Jim Mathes, de San Diego, por espacio de 30 años.A lo largo del tiempo, él ha construido estantes, escritorios y mesas de sala para amueblar los hogares de amigos y familiares; aproximadamente la mitad del tiempo, trabaja a partir de patrones comprados en la Internet. “La otra mitad yo diseño”, escribió en un correo electrónico.Recientemente, creó un estante de vinos, hecho de caoba para 52 botellas, que subastó durante una recaudación de fondos en beneficio de Servicios Comunitarios Episcopales, una agencia diocesana que ofrece servicios sociales a familias e individuos de bajos ingresos. Se obtuvieron $1.000 de la venta.“Escogí… caoba porque es una madera con la que me gusta trabajar, dijo Mathes. “Se ve bella con un barniz semibrillante”.La carpintería le proporciona “tiempo cuando creo algo tangible”, dijo. “Tengo la mente totalmente fuera de la iglesia —¡si no lo hiciera así, no tendría todos los dedos!”.Carolina del Norte: Una teología de la tonteríaEl Rdo. Joseph Hensley Jr. dice que disfrazarse de payaso, y más específicamente del personaje de su payaso Ashes, son parte de una teología de la tontería que “conmociona las cosas y ayuda a otros a mirar el mundo de manera diferente”.“Él ha caracterizado a Ashes —con pantalones negros de enorme talla y tirantes con los colores del arco iris, narizotas y cachetes colorados, sombreros estrafalarios, corbata caprichosamente anudada y camisa blanca, zapatos tenis negros Converse All-Star y a veces un acordeón— en lugares tan diferentes como la iglesia de San Lucas [St. Luke’s Church] en Durham, comunidades de jubilados y en medio del aeropuerto de Miami al regreso de un viaje de misión de la Iglesia a Belice.“Se trata de llevar este personaje chiflado a lugares donde podría haber necesidad de propagar alguna alegría”, dijo Hensley, auxiliar del rector de San Lucas, durante una entrevista reciente para ENS.El nombre de Ashes proviene de la canción de cuna “Ring Around the Rosie” [“Rueda en torno a la rosa”], explicó Hensley, que llevará a cabo un taller durante la Conferencia de Formación Cristiana del 10 al 14 de junio en el Centro de Conferencias de Kanuga, en Hendersonville [Carolina del Norte].“Como líderes de la Iglesia, se espera que tengamos una apariencia impactante”, dijo Hensley, de 39 años. “En alguna medida creo que existe esa expectativa que nos damos a nosotros mismos y que otras personas nos echan encima, y tenemos que comportarnos de cierta manera y hacer ciertas cosas. En el ministerio, lo que he tratado de hacer es poner esa imagen al revés”.Al igual que en la canción de cuna, que termina diciendo “todos nos caemos”, el espíritu de la payasada “ayuda a darnos un sentido de valor para estar dispuestos a caer —pero caer con gracias y con humildad, y, para mí, eso es una gran parte de la vida de la fe”.– La Rda.
