Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Director of Music Morristown, NJ Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH March 3, 2017 at 12:41 pm It is commonplace for parishes to have a slate stand for election to Vestry, Delegate to Diocesan Convention, and so on, and to have the same number of candidates as positions to fill. Although nominations ‘from the floor’ are possible, they are rare, and ordinarily reveal a serious rift within the community. The slate is elected by acclamation at the Annual Meeting and that is that. Is that also a Soviet-style phony election? March 2, 2017 at 5:49 pm I am a fairly conservative Episcopalian in the Diocese of San Joaquin. Therefore, I am part of a very small minority and my views differ sharply from those of the Bishop on several practical and theological matters. However, I am grateful for the leadership of Bishop Rice. He is a kind, thoughtful, caring, dedicated and energetic leader whose sincerity and commitment cannot be questioned. We are blessed to have him here.

Rice spent more than a month recovering from valley fever, a rare fungal infection endemic to the San Joaquin Valley. Photo: Diocese of San Joaquin via FacebookIt has been nearly 10 years since an earlier San Joaquin convention voted to disaffiliate with the Episcopal Church. Then-Bishop John-David Schofield, at odds with the Church over the ordination of women and gay clergy and issues of biblical authority, led the Dec. 8, 2007, action by the Central California Valley diocese.The intervening years have been marked by what Cindy Smith, the current chair of the diocesan standing committee, described as, first, scrambling to recover and trying to heal and then, in the last three years, a change of focus toward moving forward.The March 4 convention will elect the diocese’s bishop provisional, the Rt. Rev. David Rice, as its diocesan bishop, marking the first time in recent memory that a bishop will make that transition. The election will come without the typical bishop search involving multiple nominees and what diocesan officials estimate would have cost upwards of $50,000.The diocese paved the canonical way for Rice’s election in October when the annual convention amended its rules (Title I, Section 1.05 here) to allow such an election by a supermajority and only after a bishop provisional has been serving the diocese for at least 18 months.While such an election may seem unusual, Smith said it feels like the logical next step for the diocese. Diocesan leaders spent 18 months exploring with the presiding bishop and other church authorities the option of making Rice the diocesan bishop, explaining the possibility to Episcopalians in San Joaquin and listening to their reaction.“We made every effort and we took the temperature of the diocese as we did this,” Smith told Episcopal News Service. “We wanted it not to seem to be something being pushed through by the standing committee but the standing committee responding to the will of the diocese.”Smith said the only questions she and others encountered in deanery meetings held to broach the issue were procedural. “The other question was why we waited so long,” she said.A majority of both the Church’s diocesan standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction will have to agree to Rice’s election as diocesan, as is required in all bishop elections. The San Joaquin standing committee will include a letter about the election process in the documentation sent with the consent request, Smith said.Most of the other bishops provisional who have helped the Church’s five reorganizing dioceses have been retired bishops not interested in a long-term job. Rice, on the other hand, “has years ahead of him in the bishop business,” Smith said.When the diocese elected him in March 2014 as the diocese’s third bishop provisional, Rice had since 2008 been the bishop of the Diocese of Waiapu in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. Born and raised in North Carolina, Rice was a Methodist pastor for eight years prior to his ordination in the Anglican Church in New Zealand.Rice brought “enthusiasm and motivation and commitment to the diocese,” according to Smith, who added that the diocese wants to reciprocate Rice’s commitment and solidify the relationship that has been growing for the last three years.“This road map for election may seem slightly odd for some people in the church,” Rice told ENS. “All I would say about that is we’re different. We’re simply doing what we think is consistent with our narrative, how we’re emerging.”Rice and Smith say the diocese leadership believes that, instead of the normal bishop election process, in which candidates travel the diocese together to introduce themselves, San Joaquin has had a three-year “walkabout,” and the bishop and the diocese have really gotten to know each other.Retired Diocese of Northern California Bishop Jerry Lamb and retired Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Chet Talton, Rice’s predecessors, worked with Episcopalians to reconstitute the diocese. That work included both litigation over church property and pastoral work over pain the split caused.“We acknowledge full well that there have been monumental attitudinal, behavioral, cultural shifts in this place over a very short period of time, given the past,” Rice said. Before the 2007 vote to leave, Episcopalians experienced tactics that kept them divided. Now, he said, they are “working together, being in this together, and far more consultative, collaborative and collegial than, certainly, this place ever imagined.”Those changes came as the diocese reconfigured where and how it operates, and began discerning to what mission God is calling local Episcopalians. Rice said he had been talking since before he became a bishop about the church needing to “travel far lighter, to de-accumulate to minimize, to purge” itself.“What I discovered upon arrival was, all those things I’d been talking about, they’d actually been living here for some time,” he said. Thus, Rice added, he thinks that San Joaquin’s experience can be a template for the rest of the church.“We’re here through particular circumstances. I believe that most if not all this Church will be in a similar place, albeit through different circumstances, before we know it.”– The Rev.

Photo: Jane Gould[Diocese of Los Angeles] Steve usually arrives about 6 a.m. on Saturdays at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, California. He showers, changes into clean clothes, eats and then helps others do likewise.At the end of what can be exhausting but satisfying long days — the church’s shower ministry serves about 100 on an average weekend — he pitches his tent outside the church gates and settles in for the evening.“The first day I walked through those gates, I got this warm welcome,” he said in a recent telephone interview. “They didn’t judge me. They just helped feed me, clothe me and shower me. I’ve come back nearly every Saturday since.”St. Luke’s is among several congregations in the Los Angeles area with shower ministries for the unhoused. Others have included St. James in-the-City in Los Angeles and All Saints Church in Highland Park, working with Shower of Hope, which offers over 2,000 free showers each month in mobile vans in more than 20 locations throughout the county.Shower ministry clients pick up clean clothes at St. Luke’s. Photo: Jane GouldMargaret Ecker, a shower ministry coordinator at St. James in-the-City Church, said she has seen the numbers triple in recent months, from about 15 weekly to as many as 45.Clothing and food usually are provided along with the showers. Since the coronavirus pandemic, a hot meal for shower guests has been replaced with sack lunches, she said.Dan Donohue, 25, has been an enthusiastic St. James volunteer. “I wanted to get involved,” Donohue said. “I think the ability to clean yourself is a basic human right. The simplicity of the idea is so nice. There are a lot of difficulties for people without access to basic needs like showering. This way it is very simply solved by having portable showers.”The Studio City resident said he wants people to know “that it’s high time these sorts of things are addressed. It is important for people to realize these basic needs aren’t being met for every member of society. The sooner we come together and agree that there are huge systemic problems that aren’t being addressed, the quicker we as a whole society will be elevated.”The homeless, who constitute most shower guests, “are just people who are unhoused,” Donohue said. “They are our neighbors and we should treat them like they’re our neighbors. And we shouldn’t treat them like they’re something else.”Clients wait to be called for showers, food and clothing at St. Luke’s. Photo: Jane GouldIn 2019, there were an estimated 36,000 homeless people in the city of Los Angeles and nearly 59,000 throughout Los Angeles County.Gail Mutke is a 48-year St. Luke’s member who coordinates the shower ministry. She serves as a Saturday team leader and said that the pandemic may have forced logistical changes, but the ministry’s hospitality and care have remained.The church has a 30-year history of offering showers for the Long Beach unhoused population, currently estimated at about 1,800 people, many in the downtown area.Recently St. Luke’s received a $10,000 grant to support the ministry from the Long Beach Community Foundation’s COVID Emergency Fund, according to the Rev. Jane Gould, rector.The grant was used to purchase two new water heaters because “each week we would have the hot water go out for a half-hour, 45 minutes. If it was your bad luck of the draw, if it was your time and the water was cold — well, if you’re talking about giving human dignity, you need to be able to at least guarantee hot water,” Gould said.Shower guests begin lining up early on Saturday mornings. The church gates open about 8 a.m. Volunteers pass out masks, if needed, and chairs are placed in the parking lot six feet apart to encourage social distancing.Each guest receives tickets for both a sack meal and the shower. “First they get called for clothing. Then they wait for their turn in the showers, and they can go and get food anytime they want to,” Gould said. Women are directed to one part of the campus and men to another for their showers. Food and clothing are provided by local partner churches.Kevin Wood, 42, is the administrator at St. Gregory’s Church in Long Beach, one of several churches that partner with the shower ministry. He and other volunteers prepare about 130 of the sack lunches — typically a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit, chips, cookies, water and a plastic spoon, “because we’re going to serve hot soup the next day as well.”“St. Luke’s is on the front line for those coming to get food,” Wood said. “When I heard they needed help, it inspired me to help out. Any giving back to the community is always the best thing we can do. It makes you realize how blessed you are, and that you need to give back in whatever way you can.Volunteers check in shower ministry clients at St. Luke’s. Photo: Jane Gould“It’s also a reminder that some people are less fortunate, and that they need help, and that they are just as important as we are.”After Long Beach resident Abner Rios, 27, was furloughed from his customer service position, he began volunteering at the ministry also, handing out hygiene kits, equipped with razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes and other personal care items.“I felt like I needed to help out in any way I could,” Rios said. “I thought this was one of the best ways to use the free time I have.”The ministry has made such an impression, he said, that whenever he returns to work, he wants to continue volunteering because “I’ve gotten to know people by name, to make conversation and to see them for who they are — regular, everyday people who are in a difficult situation.“Just coming in here and seeing the faces and knowing that this church is offering something that is so essential to people — it feels really good.”Nick Carbajal, 22, a recent graduate of California State University, Long Beach, said volunteering at the ministry inspired him to become a member of St. Luke’s.“The Episcopal Church offered me a place where my spirituality was able to be more fully developed into a more mature, fleshed-out spirituality,” he said. “I don’t think homelessness is in God’s kingdom, at the end of the day.“Being with the guests, hearing their stories and what they have to do to survive makes me realize that homelessness shouldn’t be a thing in the first place,” he said. “We’re trying to build a new world and make sure they have these services and hopefully put a new system in place.”Gould agreed. “I would prefer to transform society so St. Luke’s never has to do shower ministries again,” she said. But for now, she hopes to receive a grant to renovate a women’s shower space to accommodate additional stalls. “Originally the program was just men. Then there was a men’s time and a women’s time and then men’s time again. Then we got a women’s shower and restroom put in and now we need to renovate and restructure it.”She noted that there are limits to their program: “We’re changing lives, but not systems,” she said.But, she added, “it is incumbent upon us to serve them and to work with our political leaders to figure out solutions to homelessness and how you address homelessness with those with substance abuse or emotional disorders.”Volunteers pack food for shower ministry clients at St. Luke’s. Photo: Jane GouldLike Mutke, Mike Allen is also a Saturday team leader. St. Luke’s guests range from those with behavioral health challenges to “someone who simply lost a job,” he said. “Their lives were turned upside down and they found themselves on the street.”For example, “one young man is a student at Long Beach Community College. His resources are going to pay for school. He’s young, able-bodied, and it’s easier to sleep outside and to couch-surf and do whatever he can do to try to pay for school.”Allen, a detective in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, said it is inspiring to see young people volunteering to assist the community, especially since traditionally many of the volunteers are over 60 and therefore unable to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic.Allen said St. Luke’s ministry “is a cool community effort. Unfortunately, the surrounding community tends to be frightened by this population and, with the onset of the pandemic, those fears have been heightened.“If we could just get more folks from the community to volunteer or to stay for a little while, a lot of those fears could be quelled,” Allen said. “If they could set aside their bias and experience this ministry as a volunteer, it would decrease their fears substantially.”Increasingly, the guests themselves, like Steve, are also volunteering, he said. “The joy is absolutely mine to be a part of this and I gain far more than I give,” he added.Steve said sleeping close to the church brings him comfort. He moved to Southern California from Chicago 15 years ago, searching for an estranged sister. He never found her. He didn’t know anyone or have any place to go.“People told me there’s a church on Seventh and Atlantic, and they will hook you up with food, a shower, and clothes — basically what I was looking for,” Steve recalled. “It pretty much became my home church. Then I got into helping the homeless and even though I’m still homeless, I feel it’s a way of giving back.“Like most homeless people, I’m not looking for a handout, but a hand up.”This story was originally published by The Episcopal News in the Diocese of Los Angeles.

The topographical disposition of this site, with a 25-meter difference between the road and its lowest point, led to a somewhat counterintuitive approach: to view the site as one would, a highly structured piece of architecture. The structure itself was then imagined as a plot with gentle contours. Two expansive roofs, rather like vast sheets, seemingly insubstantial yet solid, trace the outlines of two floors, with living areas on the lower level and bedrooms upstairs. The pre-stressed white concrete structure is taken to the limit of its flexibility. From within, the roof appears to split and crack, letting natural light in through the openings.Save this picture!© Ieva SaudargaiteSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ieva SaudargaiteSave this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!© Ieva SaudargaiteProject gallerySee allShow less10 Renowned Brazilian Projects by International ArchitectsArticlesAdministrative Building Textilverband / Behet Bondzio Lin ArchitektenSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Ieva Saudargaite Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905401/villa-vr-ytaa-youssef-tohme-architects-and-associates Clipboardlast_img read more

Lorentz Leiden consists of a composition of three light-colored towers of different heights on top of a plinth building. In Phase 1, the first two towers and plinth have now been realized. The towers have a slightly sparkling aluminium façade cladding; the highest tower in champagne color and the lower one in bronze.

Independent daily sued for questioning whether national heroes really existed

first_img October 30, 2020 Find out more News News KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about a lawsuit brought by three descendants of “national heroes” against the opposition newspaper Svoboda Slova, demanding 6.5 million dollars in damages for an alleged “attack on the honour and dignity of their ancestors.”The suit, filed on 21 May, was prompted by a column by the newspaper’s editor, Yerbol Kurmanbayev, questioning whether Karasay-Batyr, a famous 17th century warrior, and a poet known as Zhambul ever really existed.“We are disturbed that this kind of lawsuit has been brought against Svoboda Slova,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This kind of use of article 318 § 2 of the criminal code, protecting the honour and dignity of ancestors, is improper and could end up bankrupting this opposition newspaper.”The issue raised by the newspaper is a very sensitive one. President Nursultan Nazarbayev and those close to him claim to descend from these emblematic figures as part of an effort to shore up their legitimacy.Kazakhstan’s leading opposition group, the Democratic Party (the result of a recent merger of the Social Democratic Party and the liberal Naghyz Ak-Jol) issued a statement on 15 June criticising the lawsuit as a dangerous precedent, especially as legislative elections will probably be called early and the pressure on independent news media is expected to increase.

Volunteer scheme could cause havoc

first_imgHR managers are warning that volunteers recruited throughthe Chancellor’s new £300m community fund must be managed properly if publicand community services are to benefit. Last week, the public services union Unison claimed theGovernment’s plans to have volunteers working alongside trained staff in theprovision of public services could cause “havoc”. Keith Sonnet, deputy general secretary of Unison, said, “Youcannot get high-quality public services on the cheap, and using part-timevolunteers instead of well trained, full-time committed employees would lead tochaos in the public sector and to poorer public services.”Basildon and Thurrock General Hospital has over 200volunteers coordinated by a support service manager in its hotel servicesdepartment, rather than by HR.John Adsett, head of project development at Basildon andThurrock General Hospitals Trust, said, “Volunteers are an important part ofour hospital, but cannot be seen to be replacing full-time staff. As long asthey have their own focal point of reference and are given clear policies andguidelines there is no reason why volunteers cannot work side-by-side withfull-time employees.”Terry Gorman, assistant chief executive of personnel andcorporate services at Nottinghamshire County Council, said, “As long as thevolunteers are plugging gaps and not taking full-time jobs then I see noproblem. There are so many parts of the public sector that have staff andskills shortages, volunteers obviously have a role to play.” Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.

Multiple alarms were activated as public safety dispatchers monitored the suspect on a surveillance camera.The suspect was sitting on the couch in the basement of the residence when officers arrived on scene, according to a press release from the Brookline Police Department.The officers arrested Zanini Cineus, 34, who previously lived in Brockton, Massachusetts, but is currently homeless.Cineus faces charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, attempted larceny and trespassing, police said. He was expected to be arraigned in Brookline District Court later Monday.The district court in Wrentham, some 30 miles southwest of Brookline, had several active warrants out for Cineus’s arrest stemming from incidents that occurred in the town of Foxborough late last year, according to police.Brady, 43, and Bundchen, 40, had lived at the home with their three children while Brady was playing for the New England Patriots. The star quarterback was drafted by the NFL team in 2000 and subsequently led them to a number championships, winning a record six Super Bowl titles. The team’s home stadium is located in Foxborough.Brady and his family moved to Florida earlier this year, after he signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
