Bishop Jack Lumanog – sermon from Hosea 6 “Mercy – Not Sacrifice”

Today’s sermon for the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost comes from the Old Testament lesson appointed for today: Hosea 5:15–6:6.

It’s rare when Hosea comes up in the Lectionary, so I wanted to make sure I shared this word from the prophet Hosea – “Mercy – Not Sacrifice.”

Hosea 5:15 – 6:6 (English Standard Version)

15 I will return again to my place,
    until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face,
    and in their distress earnestly seek me.

“Come, let us return to the Lord;
    for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
    he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
After two days he will revive us;
    on the third day he will raise us up,
    that we may live before him.
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
    his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
    as the spring rains that water the earth.”
What shall I do with you, O Ephraim?
    What shall I do with you, O Judah?
Your love is like a morning cloud,
    like the dew that goes early away.
Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets;
    I have slain them by the words of my mouth,
    and my judgement goes forth as the light.
For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
    the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Bishop Jack Lumanog – “An Anglican Bishop Gets Real About Mental Health”

Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Bishop Jack Lumanog – “Go and Love”

Video from Bishop Jack Lumanog’s sermon – “Go and Love” – for Trinity Sunday from Matthew 28:16-20 follows below.

Matthew 28:16-20 (ESV)

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshipped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Collect of the Day

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Words *literally* put into my mouth

So, I had a discussion recently which hit me like thunderbolt over a disagreement. In response to my challenge, I was first asked a question and then told matter of factly something that inadvertently encouraged me to set the record straight. That this blog — that I don’t use nearly enough — is a place for me to speak my truth.

  1. “About the article, is there anything in the article which is untrue?”
  2. [If untrue,] “and is part of your history.”

It’s March 2014. After Archbishop Duncan announced he would not seek a second term as Archbishop, my predecessor as Chief Operating Officer also announced he would step down at the conclusion of the Archbishop’s term.

Archbishop Duncan and the Executive Committee of the ACNA appointed me as Acting Chief Operating Officer of the ACNA effective 1 July 2014 to begin serving the next Archbishop who would be elected at the June 2014 Provincial Assembly.

(Then under Foley Beach, I would have both the Canon to the Archbishop job which I had since July 2011 and the additional appointment of Chief Operating Officer effective August 2014 — working two full time jobs simultaneously which was held by two separate people — until I left the staff in October 2018. Then when I left in October 2018, it was clear what I did for 4 years and 2 months was unsustainable that I was replaced by two separate people and separating the jobs once again.)

So, what ended up coming out of my mouth for the 17 March 2014 news release, were not my words. Not at all. They were written by my predecessor and attributed to me. Perhaps he felt unsatisfied with the level of tribute that he believed he was entitled. I don’t know and I wasn’t asked. But I was pretty surprised when I saw the release when it was sent out to the whole church especially knowing that those were not my words.

Here’s what I wrote originally: “Brad has served us well in the last five years as Chief Operating Officer. I look forward to the continued opportunity to serve by ensuring the stability of the work of our Province,” said Lumanog.

Here’s what ended up in the final statement attributed to me:
“Brad’s gifts and insights in the establishment of our Provincial Office, and in the equipping of the broader Church vision, have been invaluable to the work of the Anglican Church in North America. He has served us exceedingly well in the last five years as Chief Operating Officer. I look forward to building on Brad’s excellent work and the continued opportunity to serve by ensuring the stability of the work of our Province,” said Lumanog.

This is just a glimpse into a moment of 7 years in the life of Jack Lumanog. Writing is how I process — so this is probably something I’ll be doing a little bit more here and there especially with all this extra time on my hand to write during these days of COVID-19 quarantine!

The disputed but full news release from 17 March 2017 follows below.

17 March 2017

Archbishop Announces Provincial Staff Transitions

(Ambridge, PA) – The Most Rev. Robert Duncan, in consultation with the Executive Committee of the Anglican Church in North America, is pleased to announce that The Venerable Canon Dr. Jon I. Lumanog will assume the role of Acting Chief Operating Officer of the Province effective July 1, 2014.  Canon Lumanog succeeds Mr. Bradley B. Root as he steps down as COO at the conclusion of Assembly 2014.  Mr. Root will continue beyond Assembly through the third quarter of 2014 as Special Projects Coordinator and Senior Advisor.  At mid-summer a development officer (as yet to be named) will join the Provincial Staff and Brad Root will be much involved with the transition in that area of the work.

“Over the last year and a half, our Executive Committee has been working together on management succession as we come to the conclusion of my archiepiscopate this June,” said Archbishop Duncan.  “Brad has fulfilled most admirably his five year commitment to serve me as Chief Operating Officer by establishing our Provincial Office, providing health care and pension for our clergy and lay employees for the whole Province, and by leading the extraordinary giving to provide a firm financial foundation for our movement for many years to come.”  

Canon Lumanog has served Archbishop Duncan and the Province as Canon for Provincial and Global Mission since 2011.  “Brad’s gifts and insights in the establishment of our Provincial Office, and in the equipping of the broader Church vision, have been invaluable to the work of the Anglican Church in North America.  He has served us exceedingly well in the last five years as Chief Operating Officer.  I look forward to building on Brad’s excellent work and the continued opportunity to serve by ensuring the stability of the work of our Province,” said Lumanog.

The Archbishop continued, “I also intend to nominate Mr. Root to serve as Provincial Treasurer to succeed Mr. William Roemer further ensuring continuity in our financial oversight.  It will be up to Provincial Council to ultimately confirm this nomination but our Provincial leadership is working hard to ensure a smooth transition in the Office of the Archbishop.”

imageMr. Root commented, “I have great joy in the way this transition has unfolded.  I am grateful to Archbishop Duncan for the invitation to serve him and the Province in these formative years.  I am deeply indebted to Bill Roemer for his exceptional leadership as our Provincial Treasurer and am humbled by this nomination to succeed him.  I also believe that Canon Lumanog is an ideal choice to assume this role of Acting Chief Operating Officer as he connects one Archbishop’s administration to the next.”

Archbishop Duncan also thanked the Executive Committee for their work: “The Provincial Office has provided invaluable support for my leadership. By addressing these transitional issues, the Executive Committee has ensured that this support will benefit the next Archbishop from his very first day, and enable him to carry on the work of the Province immediately.”

from 2016: The Anglican blogosphere on my candidacy for Bishop

First, does anyone even say “blogosphere” anymore?”

Second, will I still be blogging once I’m out of COVID-19 quarantine?

I was looking back at my files and found this from 5 February 2016 which took me by surprise.

I ended up finishing second in the 2016 Bishop’s election in the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh. A surprising finish to many (including myself!) considering that the other clergy on the ballot were long-timers in the Diocese and I was a relative newcomer having only been canonically resident in Pittsburgh for less than 4 years.

But this vote of confidence from an Anglican blogger took me by surprise because I had expected other long-timers in that list of names — not my own.

5 February 2016The Anglican Pittsburgh of Diocese is on the hunt for a new bishop to replace the retiring Robert Duncan who served first as its Episcopal bishop, then its first Anglican bishop, then the first ACNA Archbishop.

There are some excellent candidates. (VOL was sent a list of aspirants) and we believe that any of the following would make a good replacement for Bishop Duncan. Bishop Frank Lyons, Anglican Diocese of the South in the Diocese of Atlanta; Canon Phil Ashey, CEO American Anglican Council, Atlanta, GA; The Ven. Canon Jack, Lumanog, COO, Anglican Church in North America; The Rev Canon John Macdonald, Associate Professor, Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge, PA; The Very Rev Charles “Chip” Edgar, Dean Church of the Apostles, Columbia, SC (PEARUSA); The Rev. Laurie Thompson, Dean of Advancement, Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge, PA. 

While not a full list of contenders, any one of these would carry forward the flag of orthodoxy in that diocese. Prayers are requested.

Bishop Jack Lumanog – “I Can’t Breathe”

Video from Bishop Jack Lumanog’s sermon – “I Can’t Breathe” – for Pentecost Sunday from Luke 4:1-21 follows below.

This powerful and challenging word is a call to lament and repent in light of today’s celebration of Pentecost Sunday and the events of this past week with the death of yet another unarmed African American in George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“Come, Holy Spirit, breathe new life into Your Church. Help us to be a prophetic voice in this country once again.”

O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us. 
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. 
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Luke 4:1-21 (ESV)

1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were over, he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” And Jesus answered him, “It is written,

“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
    and him only shall you serve.’”

And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written,

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
    to guard you’,

11 and

“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”

12 And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.

14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read.17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”

20 And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

Bishop Jack Lumanog – “How long, O Lord?”

I am in lament. Truly in lament over what has been happening at an astonishing rate in America that I can hardly keep up with the incidents and names of unarmed African Americans who are being killed. Enough is enough. 

I am a person of color as an Asian American. But I don’t believe my experience even comes close to what my black brothers and sisters have to fear everyday for their own safety. 

I have been asked by leading black archbishops on how to respond and I will add my voice and my strength to this movement. 

For now, I cry out to the Lord using the words of Psalm 13:1-2

“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?”

Bishop Jack Lumanog – sermon for the 7th Sunday of Easter

Acts 1:1-14

In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. And while staying with them he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, “you heard from me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10 And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away. 13 And when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas the son of James. 14 All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.

Collect of the Day

O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
