CAPA seeks a ‘unified and self-sustaining Anglican Church in Africa’

Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] It’s a well-known fact that since the establishment of the Anglican Church in Africa in the 1800s, the Africa churches have largely depended on outside donors for material, mission and financial support. Until recently most Africa Christians did not believe that the church could survive without the support of western donors.The Rev. Canon Grace Kaiso is the general secretary of the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA), which coordinates and articulates issues affecting the church and communities on the continent.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York He has been very outspoken on issues to do with the independence of the Africa church. In a special interview with ACNS he said: “Africa has realized that it has resources and so we want the Christians in Africa to now own the mission of the church.”CAPA is a regional faith-based organization that was established in 1979 in Chilema, Malawi, by the Anglican primates of Africa. It operates in 12 Anglican provinces: Burundi, Central Africa (Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe), Congo, and the Indian Ocean (Madagascar, Seychelles and Mauritius); Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Southern Africa (Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa Swaziland), Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, West Africa (Ghana, Cameroon, Togo, Sierra Leone and Liberia), and the Diocese of Egypt.For about 35 years, CAPA has reached out to individuals, communities and groups through her over 40 million dedicated church members in different communities in Africa. Administratively, CAPA is headed by a council that is led by a chairman, supported by other executives and other officers for the smooth running of the provinces’ activities. It also has a secretariat headed by a general secretary located in Nairobi, Kenya.“CAPA endeavors to build the capacity of the Anglican Churches in Africa to better understand the issues of mission and development within and outside the Anglican Communion,” said Canon Grace. “We also aim to provide a forum for the Church in Africa to share experiences, consult and support each other as well as establish opportunity for collaboration, learning and joint initiatives.”Empowering and building the capacity of churches in Africa is among CAPA’s top priorities and over the years training, networking and sharing opportunities have been availed to archbishops, clergy and laity. In October last year, CAPA facilitated for seven bishops from the provinces of Burundi, Congo and Rwanda to attend a weeklong leadership training for French speakers in Nairobi, Kenya.The general secretary emphasized that the “re-articulation of the moral and spiritual resources of the church in the realm of human development will help bring about a new society in which the weak, the poor and the vulnerable have an equal voice and are not divided by selfish gains of tyranny or by the forces of social fragmentation such as tribalism and nepotism.”“We’re also challenging the Provinces in Africa to mobilize the professionals which they have so that they can bring their skills to bear on the mission of the church,” said Kaiso. “It’s simply a question of challenging our professionals in the area of discipleship. How can the use the gifts that God has given them be used as resources for mission.”He added: “In the area of natural resources, the Africa churches are endowed with untapped abundance of resources, social and moral capital to deliver development especially in the most remote parts of the continent. This is a good chance to complement the work of State actors and civil society in education, health, agriculture, rural water supply and infrastructural projects.”“We are on a mission to effectively coordinate and provide a platform for the Anglican Church in Africa to celebrate life, consult and address challenges in the continent,” said Kaiso. “We would like to fulfill God’s promise for abundant life through fellowships, partnerships, capacity building and promotion of good governance and social development.”CAPA as a continental fellowship of the Anglican Communion is committed to “deepening of the values of dignity and integrity, healing and social transformation and to enable the people of God to grow in the faith and live life in its fullness.”In recent years, the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa has been a very positive force on the continent especially in the area of managing conflicts, engaging in peace building initiatives especially in the context of electoral process, which seems to be a big problem in most African countries.The organization emphasizes self-sustainability for the church in Africa, which in so many ways than one, continues to rely on donor support to implement some if not most of its programs.Kaiso said that CAPA looks forward to a “unified and self-sustaining Anglican Communion in Africa that it able to provide a holistic ministry to all and fulfilling God’s promise for abundant life.”The Church in Africa can achieve a lot if it were to take note of the resources that are readily available to them. Drawing on the Gospel where Jesus feeds five thousand people from only five loaves and two fish, CAPA is developing a mapping tool to take note of what the Africa church already has.“We hope this will help parishes and communities around Africa to look at what is there and also challenge themselves to what extent they have been faithful stewards and how can we harness what is there to get where we want to be,” said Kaiso.The issue of empowerment takes center stage in most of CAPA’s programs. There is more emphasis towards helping the vulnerable especially with regards to gender injustices, exploitation, child trafficking and assisting displaced families and communities.It clear that CAPA has a very ambitious program for the Anglican Church in Africa. From organizing meetings for African primates to liaise on issues affecting the continent, building capacity among development workers who address issues of poverty and economic empowerment, to bringing together various clergy and their wives through retreats meant to reflect and meditate on the importance of family life and how that can affect the health and growth of the church.However raising finances from within the African Church has been a challenge. “We are launching a program called Africa reaching out to Africa,” reported Kaiso. “We seek to mobilize Christians across the continent to own the mission of the church. If we can get local people to commit even US$20 per year towards the mission of the church, that would much a huge difference.”Despite the emphasis on local partners, CAPA still hopes to establish and develop lasting partnerships from both within and outside Africa and the Anglican Communion as a whole.Kaiso, who spoke passionately about the potential of Africa, concluded: “We believe very firmly in Africa and the church here. We have a future, but this can only be unlocked if we truly realize the potential that the continent holds.” Rector Albany, NY Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Press Release Service Featured Jobs & Calls The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Shreveport, LA Curate Diocese of Nebraska center_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Collierville, TN Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Bath, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Belleville, IL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Africa, Youth Minister Lorton, VA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector Tampa, FL Tags Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Washington, DC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MSlast_img read more

A double height light reveal floods the dining room and boys’ room above with additional light.Save this picture!© Anson SmartThe lack of connection to the outdoors has been counteracted by internalising the level change. As a result the combined living space benefits from high ceilings, flowing directly onto the terrace and grassed area beyond once the pocket bi-fold doors are slid away.  Increased ceiling heights, generous volumes and borrowed space combine to create a sense of spaciousness in this relatively narrow site.Save this picture!© Anson SmartSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Anson SmartSlight adjustments to the layout make a considerable difference to not only the feel but the frequency of use of different spaces. The relocation of the laundry to the lower ground floor allows a better connection between inside and outside at ground level.

Mi visita con Fidel

first_imgMucho se ha dicho y escrito sobre las contribuciones del Comandante Fidel a las luchas de liberación en América Latina, el Caribe y en todo el mundo. Pero rara vez sus contribuciones personales y sus atributos se destacan lo suficiente. Fueron las cualidades revolucionarias de Fidel lo que hizo que su liderazgo diera un gigantesco paso adelante en favor de la liberación popular y del socialismo revolucionario, no sólo en Cuba, sino también internacionalmente.Fidel dejó un tremendo legado, tantas lecciones, enseñando a través del ejemplo personal cómo ser un socialista revolucionario verdadero y consistente.Conocí a Fidel en 1993 durante una delegación de solidaridad médica a la isla. El ex fiscal general de los Estados Unidos, Ramsey Clark, la escritora Alice Walker y el fundador del Movimiento Indígena Americano Dennis Banks, encabezaron la delegación de 10 personas, que también incluía a varias/os médicos. Fue durante la epidemia de neuropatía óptica que afectó a miles de cubanas/os y que el bloqueo criminal estadounidense agravaba debido a la dificultad en obtener materiales del exterior.La crisis, sin embargo, se resolvió como tantas dificultades en Cuba, debido al espíritu creador de la Revolución. Una cualidad inspirada por Fidel: no aceptar una derrota, sino revertirla y convertirla en victoria. Así es como el revés tras el ataque de Moncada – cuando muchos revolucionarios fueron asesinados por las fuerzas de Batista, y Fidel encarcelado- se convirtió en una revolución victoriosa.La delegación se reunió con Fidel durante tres horas por la noche en el Palacio de la Revolución. Durante esa visita, su gran habilidad para conversar, hacer que las personas se sientan cómodas y al mismo tiempo conseguir que hablen de temas valiosos y relevantes, mientras hace que su interlocutor/a profundice su propia comprensión y reflexione sobre esos mismos temas, fue impresionante.Pero eso no es sólo un buen rasgo personal, sino que ilustra vívidamente su profundo enfoque dialéctico de la vida. Algo que nosotras/os como revolucionarios marxistas debemos vigilar y practicar constantemente, sobre todo cuando vivimos en una sociedad marcada por el pensamiento metafísico – la premisa de que básicamente, las cosas no cambian y que no hay ninguna interrelación con otros acontecimientos.La conversación casual no es parte del vocabulario de Fidel. Para él, cada persona que conoce, es una fuente de nueva información, de nuevas experiencias. Hablar con Fidel es como desentrañar un misterio. Siempre tenía una pregunta; querer aprender más, saber sobre las razones y las bases de una afirmación. Para mí fue fascinante. Nunca había conocido alguien como él.A través de su conversación con Dennis Banks aprendimos sobre la lucha por mantener el lenguaje y la historia de los pueblos indígenas en Estados Unidos, mientras que con Alice Walker el tema era la falta de desarrollo adecuado de África debido al colonialismo, y su investigación sobre la mutilación genital de niñas africanas. Conmigo, sabiendo que soy Boricua, la conversación giró sobre la aniquilación de nuestros indígenas Taínos por el colonialismo español y el estado actual de Puerto Rico bajo la dominación estadounidense.Fidel está más vivo que nunca. Se ha convertido en el vínculo que une a los pueblos de todo el mundo. No es casualidad que la cualidad que generalmente se estudia primero sobre Fidel es el concepto de Unidad.¡Viva Fidel! ¡Viva la lucha socialista internacional!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Thousand Oaks suspect posted to social media before mass shooting: ‘Life is boring so why not?’

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.) — The veteran suspected of opening fire at a Thousand Oaks, California, bar, killing 12, texted or posted to social media during the shooting, law enforcement sources told ABC News.Preliminary information indicates that Long walked into the bar, immediately shot a group of security guards and employees standing near the entrance to the bar and then paused to text or post to social media, according to law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation.“It’s too bad I won’t get to see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth as to why I did it,” he wrote at 11:24 p.m., according to documents obtained by ABC News. “Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought… life is boring so why not?”Three minutes later, he posted, “Yeah… I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’ … or ‘keep you in my thoughts’ … every time… and wonder why these keep happening.”Long’s social media were taken down at the request of law enforcement.Long, a former U.S. Marine, showed signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, authorities said, but there’s little information available yet on what prompted the attack late Wednesday night at the Borderline Bar and Grill. Long was found dead inside the bar; authorities believe he shot himself.“He was somewhat irate. Acting a little irrationally,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a press conference. “They felt he might be suffering from PTSD, the fact he was a veteran.”Long, 28, lived near the bar with his mother, neighbors told police, describing the suspect as a troubled man who battled fits of rage.“I think I do recall some times when he was struggling with some issues internally,” said Todd Stratton, a friend of Long’s. “I didn’t know [about] PTSD, but his girlfriend would kind of ask him about things going on with him, because he’d get really upset sometimes and kind of shut down and he wouldn’t want to talk about it to people. He’d just kind of close himself up, and I think he had a really hard time reaching out for help because of his personality.”FBI officials have swarmed the house, desperate to find the motive behind his alleged shooting rampage.One neighbor told ABC News she called the police on Long once after he allegedly got into a fight with his mother. Another neighbor said Long rarely left home and that his mother told her that he was getting violent.Dean said Long had several previous run-ins with police, including an incident in April where deputies were called to his home in Newbury Park because he was reportedly behaving erratically.“They went to the house, they talked to him. He was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally,” Dean said. “They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialist, who met with him, talked to him and cleared him.”“It’s difficult, because I’ve been doing this for 41 years, and you don’t leave things unfinished,” Dean, who’d been considering retirement, told ABC News’ David Muir.Dean was a close friend of one of the shooting victims, Sgt. Ron Helus, who died in the line of duty.“I think we try to look at the core and try to understand what happened and see if there’s a way that we can stop it. We all try to make sense of the senseless.”Authorities said hundreds were inside when the suspect walked in to the country-western bar with a gun and opened fire. The weapon was equipped with a an extended-ammunition magazine, allowing it to hold more than the normal 10 bullets, so it’s unclear how many total rounds he may have had, police said.Zach Frye and Tyler Odenkirk told ABC News that two of their friends who worked as security guards at Borderline were among the dead. A Borderline bouncer said they were surely among the heroes.“I know they did everything they could in their final moments,” the unnamed bouncer said. “We were told one of them went out a hero. He went out fighting the shooter.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Reports have filtered back to IOSH of the numerous projects that memberswere involved in. Many approached local schools, under their own initiative,and engaged young children in activities and competitions introducing them tothe concept of health and safety, while others participated in special eventsto highlight the week’s theme. Andrea Alexander, a member of IOSH’s technical affairs team at head office,designed a health and safety quiz for four- to five-year-olds. It wasdistributed to primary schools across Leicestershire with the winning pupil,five-year-old Fionn Boyd and her class, being invited to The Grange for the dayto collect their prizes. The quiz could also be downloaded from the IOSH website, making it availableto members across the country. This proved a very popular move and IOSH hassince received feedbackfrom members and schools commending the institution onthe initiative and relaying how popular it was with their children. One member, Patrick Fowler MIOSH, proprietor of Professional IndependentPractitioners, chose the European week to launch his new mobile occupationalhealth nursing service. Based in Devon and known locally as “Patrick the nurse”, heoperates around the South West of the country visiting customers, on site, inhis fully equipped “clinic” – a converted van. Fowler, who has beenan occupational health nurse for 14 years, said “I was aware thatemployers require occupational health services that cause minimum disruptionand financial outlay”.

Tinkle blocked Riley Battin on a 3-point attempt moments later and made two free throws on the other end to clinch the victory. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Tres Tinkle scored 31 points and Kylor Kelley blocked six shots in Oregon State’s 81-72 win over the Utah on Saturday, marking the first time the Beavers have swept the Colorado-Utah road trip. UP NEXT Allen, who rallied the Utes with his emotion and ability to get to the basket, made a twisting left-hand layup to cut the Beavers’ lead to 71-67 with 2:13 to play. The Beavers ran the clock down and gave the ball to Tinkle above the top of the arc. With two Utes watching him closely, Tinkle dribbled to his left, rose up and drained a 3-pointer with 1:43 remaining. Kelley, a seven-foot junior from Gervais, Ore., became Oregon State’s all-time single season leader in blocked shots in his first year in orange. Kelley passed Eric Moreland, who held the record with 73 in the 2012-13 campaign, with his third block of the game midway through the second half. Ethan Thompson had 13 points and Kelley also 13 points to help the Beavers (14-7, 6-3 Pac-12) win their third game in the last four to stay near the top of the conference standings.
