For some time now, the Holy Spirit has been telling me that we (TEC) need to focus more attention and energy on deepening the faith of those who DO attend our churches. If we do that successfully, everything else will happen naturally. People of deep, well-fed faiths are naturally prone to sharing the Good News of their faith. Their lives become a form of organic evangelism, attracting others by their example. Furthermore, people of deep, well-fed faiths have or seek out the tools they need to hear and understand God’s call to them. As such, they will be involved in outreach and social justice causes, because their God – rather than their church – calls them to do so. What would the Episcopal Church look and act like, if every single parishioner had a deep and abiding faith that was fed by a strong theological foundation, daily spiritual practices, and an understanding of God’s call to them?

God is calling us, so let’s get going! Statements and opinions expressed in the articles and communications herein, are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of Episcopal News Service or the Episcopal Church. The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group [Episcopal News Service] It has been nearly two months since the beginning of General Convention 2012.  As a deputy, I remember the excitement around the idea of doing things differently.  The cynical side of me says that we will cut staff and resources, but ultimately seek to preserve an institution that acts the same way and produces the same results.  The optimistic side of me thinks that we are on the verge of being the church that God has called us to be for decades.  I think there is a bit of both in most of us.  Most of us are fearful that the church we all love is slipping through our fingers and yet we feel powerless to make any real change.In order not to let my cynical side win and to really change, we need to stop lying to ourselves.  We are not as important as we think we are, and the world often chooses to ignore us.  Yes, that saddens and frustrates me, and I think we are in the process of changing.  People ignore us because we sometimes love our institution more than we love Jesus.  I love the Episcopal Church, and I love Jesus even more.  I know I am guilty of defending an institution when I feel that Jesus is calling us to something different.In order to find what is at the core of the Episcopal Church, let’s start to have real, honest and frank discussions about where we are now and where we feel God is calling us to go.  This means listening to cynics and optimists alike and even those outside our own denomination.We are also really good at simply ignoring Jesus when it makes us uncomfortable or calls us to really sacrifice something.  I will confess that I struggle with giving up something that I really care about, even if I know it will transform me and/or the larger community. We all know that by going through the motions as individuals or communities, we only fool ourselves.Being the Body of Christ in the world means worrying less about being “nimble” (a General Convention buzzword) and more about being relevant. To be relevant we need to be a church that is actively engaged in changing the world and is a moral voice on all levels.  It broke my heart to hear people say that General Convention resolutions concerning social issues did not matter because the government does not care what we think.  It broke my heart because I knew they were correct.  I wonder if that is the politician’s fault or ours?  What if politicians did care what we think?We need to let go of our self-aggrandizing goals and seek to build a truly new church that responds to the needs of the world, with word and action.  To most of my non-church attending friends, the Episcopal Church, like most churches, appears to care about the world most when it suits our own needs or makes us look good. Our ineffectiveness has not gone unnoticed by those outside the church. The Episcopal Church I know is a different church where great work is being done, and I think we are capable of much more.A huge part of change is engaging in a process of self-sacrifice and owning our own accountability in the system.  If you are concerned with, for example, ministry to Spanish-speaking people or university chaplaincies (or whatever), then stop looking just to your diocese or the Episcopal Church Center to solve the problem. We need to start claiming our own authority to solve problems for our own ministry contexts. Claiming our own local authority balanced with our recognition of our mutual interdependence will help us forge a new path that others will want to join.Speaking of our own authority, let’s not sit around idly and wait for a restructuring committee to give us all the answers we need. This transformation needs to start at the parish level or diocesan level while the restructuring committee does the work that it needs to do on the largest levels of our church.  We do not need a report from a committee to start to hold each other accountable and start to transform the church.  You have more responsibility than you think, and God is calling you to use it.– The Rev. Alex Dyer is priest-in-charge at the Episcopal Church of St. Paul & St. James, in New Haven, Connecticut.  Submit a Job Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Submit a Press Release September 11, 2012 at 8:21 pm Yes, we need to get started — but I fear we have been starting for a long time. Many clergy in my generation have, for decades, have worked at making Jesus the focus of the church. Many of us are now retired, and I fear the message hasn’t taken. I hear very few in the Episcopal saying they love Jesus, but multitudes are more than happy to tell me they love “their” church.

The lot situated in the coastal town of Cariló presented a depression in its centre and some pine trees on the rear façade. Two of the main requirements were: ensuring the users’ privacy –as the house is set on a busy street- and no level changes. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe dwelling stands as an autonomous artefact in a beach town with no clear architectural identity and which strictly respects setbacks, vegetation and natural topography. The house creates its own world as it closes in itself: a one-level-rectangular prism with three subtractions in the shape of patios that add ventilated perimeter and create transitional spaces between the interior and exterior. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThese spaces can be closed at the outer edge with roll down shutters, creating two different perimeters; thus, securing the users’ privacy and ensuring the property’s security when the owners are not at the vacation home.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSunlight. A major challenge was to correctly orient this compact house since the brief included a closed garage on the street access. This was solved by placing the garage close to the street and a strip which nestles the bedrooms to the north.The living-dining room gets light from the same point thanks to the lifting offthe slab. The subtractions on the slab also illuminate those spaces which are further from the house perimeter. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaIn order to free the back of the lot from other constructions, the house was set at the minimum setback allowed from property line. This guarantees no shadows stemming from the own structure and turns the house into a ‘plug’ to the views from the street, creating a big private patio at the inner building level and free from construction to the rear façade. The concrete awnings on the front windows work as seasonal light regulators depending on the solar height and also protect the windows from the dirt caused from the dust of the street and rainwater.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Diego MedinaMateriality.The formal austerity of the house matches the austerity of the exposed concrete –with core insulation- and the glass. The concrete was also selected for its low maintenance and for its expressive and technological/building attributes.  The iron and galvanized sheet in the exterior doors also contribute to the low maintenance as one of the main objectives was that the owners did not spend time and money when enjoying their vacations.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaIts height, materiality and shape show that the house does not intend to stand out in the landscape.

Panel on protection of journalists in armed conflict

first_img Verbal statement – George Gordon-Lennox, Reporters Without BordersMr. Chairman, We at Reporters Without Borders share the concern about war reporters and their ability to operate that has already been expressed in the course of this debate. Dozens of journalists are killed each year in war zones.Concern is growing because journalists are being targeted more and more. Our international president, Gérald Sapey, who has headed well-known print and broadcast media in Switzerland, can confirm to you that 20 years ago, war reporters risked being killed by a shell or stray bullet, but now they are being directly targeted, now they risk murder or abduction. This is due to a change in the nature of wars. Twenty years ago, there were traditional wars between “professional” armies with a known front line. Nowadays, there are many belligerents, who are not always identified, and the front line is moving and often undefined. In Iraq or Afghanistan, for example, journalists are above all regarded as spies to be eliminated or as bargaining chips. Respect for journalists as neutral and independent observers no longer exists. For Afghan, Iraqi or Somali insurgents, the journalist is above all a foreigner who supports his government.We are also concerned about kidnapping and hostage taking. Much has been said about killings, but there is also a need for structures and mechanisms that can be quickly activated when journalists are taken hostage. They do not exist. Reporters Without Borders is ready to volunteer its services in the management of such a project.As a result of all of this, there are fewer and fewer war reporters and entire regions (Somalia, Gaza Strip, Democratic Republic of Congo and southern Afghanistan) are no longer sufficiently covered.We must also continue to be vigilant about the phenomenon of embedding. This is tending to become the rule rather than the exception. Nowadays, some armed forces no long want to talk to journalists if they are not embedded. This is particularly so with the US and Israeli armed forces.Journalists need to know more about how soldiers operate, just as soldiers need to know more about how journalists operate. Military service is gradually disappearing and young journalists covering war zones have often had no previous contact with soldiers. Relations can be fraught because the journalists know nothing of the military’s operational methods and chain of command.The French military organise training sessions that enable young reporters and soldiers to get to know each other a bit better and be less suspicious of each other. It is an experiment that has worked and could be adopted more widely under the aegis of the United Nations. The UN could hold training sessions to increase awareness of the work of journalists in war zones. Several armies do it already. So do private sector companies. It could be interesting to have a more international approach.At a more institutional level, real efforts are needed to monitor and promote implementation of Security Council Resolution 1738, which says journalists in war zones must be recognised as civilians and, as such, must be respected and protected. There is not enough awareness of this resolution, even on the part of senior UN officials!This raises questions about the UN’s ability to make any significant effort to challenge and condemn the states responsible for this situation. A code of silence, sham investigations and a failure to prosecute suspects are the main characteristics of this impunity, which just strengthens the ability of belligerents to ignore international law, including the Geneva Conventions.Reporters Without Borders thinks this situation is eroding the moral authority of the rules and regulations that have been established and is undermining belief in the ability to enforce international law. The need is therefore greater than ever to remind everyone of the principles that governed this resolution’s adoption in New York in 2006 and to call on protagonists to respect them. We think this is the way to go, rather trying to get the international community to adopt new rules.Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Journalist forced to flee Bolívar department after price put on his head

The organisation said that six other journalists had to flee the country or their region last year as provincial journalists come under constant threat. Organisation to go further Reporters Without Borders today voiced serious concern after journalist Alexander Guerrero, of the daily Magangué Hoy, in Magangué, was forced to flee Bolívar department in northern Colombia after he was told that his life was in danger.The worldwide press freedom organisation also condemned repeated death threats made against, Humberto Bedoya Henao of radio Ondas del Meta, in Villavicencio, and Clodomiro Castilla Ospino, editor of the magazine Pulso del Tiempo and presenter on Voz de Montería in the city of the same name in the north-east. The three recently exposed corruption or misuse of power implicating municipal officials.Alexander Guerrero has been the target of constant harassment since he reported on 31 December 2007 on the ransacking of the mayor’s offices by supporters of the former mayor, Jorge Luis Alfonso López, who was charged and then acquitted of embezzlement and money-laundering and whose family has alleged links with para-militaries.After he sent footage of the raid to correspondents of national television stations Caracol and RCN, one of Jorge Luis Alfonso López’s bodyguards stopped him in the street and threatened to kill him. Four days later, Guerrero realised he was being watched by people travelling on a motorbike and parked in front of his home. The current mayor Magangué, Anuar Arana Gechem, who planned to appoint Guerrero as head of his press service, later warned him that a contract had been taken out on him and that he would be killed before 18 January. On the 15th, the journalist made up his mind and left the city under police escort. “Seven Colombian journalists had to leave their regions or the country in 2006 and six were forced to do the same in 2007. How many should we expect to be forced into exile in 2008?” asked Reporters Without Borders. “Corruption and alleged or real links between some regional officials and para-militaries makes a journalist’s job almost impossible.”Certainly, the threatened journalists benefit from vigilance on the part of the interior ministry but the effort to protect them should not provide a screen, and even less an excuse, to leave sensitive cases where the journalists left them. Protection is nothing without a fight against impunity and the restoration of the rule of law.”Elsewhere, Humberto Bedoya Henao, director of the news programme “Hechos y Opiniones” on Ondas del Meta radio in Villavicencio, central Colombia, received a death threat by telephone on 22 January. The anonymous caller invited the journalist to attend his own funeral. The threatening call came hours after the journalist revealed the fraudulent handing over of a procurement contract from city hall to businessman Leonardo Pérez. The journalist had previously been threatened in October 2007, after making public the criminal record of a candidate to the municipal council in Villavicencio. The Colombian journalists’ federation (FECOLPER) said the plight of Humberto Bedoya Henao had been brought to the attention of the interior and justice ministry. Finally, Clodomiro Castilla Ospino, a contributor to the programme “Bloque Radial” on radio Voz de Montería and editor of the magazine Pulso del Tiempo, said on air on W Radio on 17 January that he had received death threats, the most recent from Col. Francisco Miranda, a high-ranking local policeman. The journalist linked the threats to his recent investigations into embezzlement of public funds by officials suspected of links with para-militaries. The minister of the interior and justice provided protection to Castilla Ospino.

To put that in perspective, Meyer’s 7 first-set kills equaled Flintridge Prep’s leader in kills for the entire match.Ellen Chang led the Rebels with 7 kills.Meyer also closed out the first two games with aces on her serve.“Today, we played all right, but there is a lot of room for improvement,” Meyer said. “My role is to lead the team in kills and help my teammates. (Winning the first league game of the year) really sets the tone for the rest of the season.”Along with Chang’s 7 kills for Flintridge Prep (1-1 overall, 0-1 in league) Courtney Johnson and Jada Gritton had 6 kills apiece for the Rebels. Captain Jade Whaley had 18 assists.“This is only the second game of the year for our, so we’re still learning and going through growing pains,” Rebels coach Sean Beattie said. “They’re one of the best teams in league and we battled. I was really impressed that we were able to stop a couple of their runs. It’s easy to pack up when you lose the first two games, but we kept competing and I was proud.”Angelica Raymundo had 25 assists for Westridge (3-0, 1-0), while the Rebels squad had a game-best 9 aces.“Game one, we performed well and game two tapered off a bit. It could have been better,” Westridge coach Otto Lacayo said. “We need to clean it up, but we got the win. It’s huge (to win first league game), we have another one on Friday and plays a role in the growth process.”Meyer is looking to be part of a perfect season.“We can kill this whole season and go undefeated,” she said. “We have good balance and size and girls with a lot of experience.”Westridge plays Friday night at Rio Hondo Prep as league play continues at 6:30.Flintridge Prep gets back at it today (Thursday) when it hosts Firebaugh at 3:15.Contact: [email protected] follow us on Twitter @SportsPasadena and we encourage readers to send us real-time scores, pictures and videos to our twitter handle with the hashtag #PasadenaNowSports Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

The court directed the Collector, Nagpur as well as the Nagpur Municipal Corporation Commissioner, to consider whether wearing a mask in public should be made mandatory.Similar directions were passed by a division bench two weeks back and compliance of these directions, several affidavits were filed.District Collector, Nagpur in his affidavit stated that with regard to the matter of setting up of separate isolation wards in jails across Vidarbha Region, the Superintendent, Nagpur Central Prison on April 3, 2020, informed the Office of the Collector that a separate quarantine barrack has been prepared and fifteen isolation wards are reserved in Nagpur Central Prison.Furthermore, in order to help migrant workers stranded at various places in the district, directions have been issued to ensure that food is provided through ‘Shivbhojan Thali Yojna’ at various centres in the State. The rate of that Thali has been reduced to Rs.5/- for a period of further three months to facilitate the provision of meals to workers, migrants and homeless persons.41 shelter homes have been created in Nagpur District (Rural) Area with a capacity to accommodate 4990 migrant workers. Out of the aforesaid in twelve shelter homes about 475 migrant workers have been accommodated. Also, the District Administration has isolated about thirty people in the district who had reported about their travel history and visit to Nizamuddin Markaz.On behalf of NMC, the Additional Health Officer filed an affidavit in which it has been stated that the Municipal Corporation has been conducting surveys to identify COVID-19 patients in ten zones in the city of Nagpur. Moreover, 24 x 7 emergency control room has been made functional and steps have been taken to ensure that medical help is made available to all.Shelter homes have been created with a capacity to hold 1691 persons. At present 980 persons are staying in these homes.172 shelter homes have also been made available to accommodate 6806 persons and presently 5556 persons are staying in these shelters.On behalf of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), counter affidavit has been filed by the Director, National Institute of Research in Reproductive Health. Along with the said affidavit list of private laboratories that can undertake tests for COVID-19 has been annexed. It has been stated that approval has been granted by ICMR to 51 private laboratories. Other private laboratories interested in applying for testing facilities can do so by filing requisite proforma.Amicus Curiae Anup Gilda told the Court that insofar as setting up of VRDL facility at Akola and Government Medical College at Nagpur is concerned, ICMR could be directed to consider granting approval to these facilities. He emphasized that Prevention and Protective Equipment (PPE) or Hazmat Kit must be supplied to the doctors, nursing staff and sanitation workers at MLA Hostel as well as at private Medical Colleges where such patients are being treated.Referring to an advisory dated April 4, 2020, issued by ICMR with regard to the conduct of rapid anti-body based blood test, Gilda submitted that this test could be directed to be conducted since the result of such test is available within a period of 30 minutes and the same would facilitate early action.Advocate TD Mandlekar appeared on behalf of Dr.Anoop Marar in an intervention application to highlight the importance of rapid antibody test to identify and screen COVID-19 patients. According to him, presently PCR testing facility is available only at three places in the city which test is time-consuming and also costly. As per the Advisory issued by the ICMR antibody test could be implemented considering its cost-effectiveness and lesser time taken to indicate the results.On the other hand, petitioner’s counsel Ram Heda suggested that wearing protective masks must be made mandatory for the members of public whenever they are required to come on the streets during the period of lockdown.Additional Solicitor General UA Aurangabadkar opposed the application for intervention and sought time to file a reply to the same.AGP DP Thakre referred to the affidavit filed on behalf of the District Collector and stated that approval for setting up of VRDL facility at Akola, Yavatmal, Chandrapur and GMC Nagpur has been granted in principle. It would now be necessary for the ICMR to consider whether the VRDL facility being provided at these places is liable to be approved, he added.Justice Chandurkar noted-“As regards the suggestion made on behalf of the Intervener with regard to the efficacy of the rapid antibody-based blood test based on the Advisory issued by the ICMR, it would be necessary for the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare through its Secretary to consider whether the rapid anti-body test could be directed to be conducted especially keeping in view the short time required for indicating the result of such test. Similarly, the strategy for use of this test and especially the aspect of home isolation as an alternative to hospital treatment is also a relevant aspect to be taken into consideration. This would enable easing the pressure on hospitals at this crucial time.”The court granted time to ICMR in order to enable it to take an expeditious decision on the grant of approval to the VRDL facilities for testing of COVID-19 at Akola, Yavatmal, Chandrapur and at the Government Medical College, Nagpur.Court also directed the respondents to follow previous directions in the matter ‘in their true spirit.’Click here to download the Order Next Storylast_img read more
