All Episcopalians are invited to join together on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, February 26, and throughout the Lenten season to pray for those who are impacted by poverty and disease worldwide.  Congregations may also consider dedicating a special offering toward the organization’s mission.“Since our Lenten theme is health and healing, we are encouraging churches to focus on how they can help promote health and fight disease on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday and throughout the season,” Sellers-Petersen said. “One particular way they can do this is by joining the NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund campaign and inviting members to educate themselves about malaria and take action to prevent it.  By purchasing a $12 mosquito net, a single individual can help protect up to three people from this deadly disease, but a congregation working together could protect a whole community!”Complementary resources for Lent and Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, including a bulletin insert, sermon notes and special prayers, are available at www.er-d.org/Lent/.To support Episcopal Relief & Development’s work, please visit www.er-d.org or call 1.855.312.HEAL (4325).

UK churches strive for an environmentally ‘green’ Christmas

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Cathedral Dean Boise, ID [Ecumenical News International] As the concept of “going green” continues to gain traction among consumers and businesses, churches in the United Kingdom are using the Christmas season to highlight their role in improving the environment.In early December, St. Luke’s, a Catholic church in the London suburb of Pinner, switched on its solar panels, while the Anglican dioceses of Gloucester, Exeter, Bath, and Wells launched an ambitious project to provide “green” electricity for most of their 300 churches, 200 schools, and other institutions.“We want to take God’s gift of energy and offer it back in a way that does not damage the environment,” said Canon Adrian Slade of the Diocese of Gloucester.A number of other green initiatives were implemented by churches this Christmas season.“Don’t Stop at the Lights,” an Anglican handbook, provided material to help church leaders plan a year of environmental change in their communities, and offered themes that could be linked to services, as well as study materials on Biblical texts dealing with environmental concerns.Practical suggestions for Christmas mentioned in the handbook included decorating churches by using greenery from gardens rather than florists, creating home-made decorations and gifts, and lighting candles instead of using electric lights.The ecumenical campaign Operation Noah ran a “Reclaim Christmas” campaign advocating “putting the waiting back into wanting” throughout Advent, and urging people to buy less.An Operation Noah statement says “Advent was traditionally a period of penitence and quiet anticipation. But now it seems no more than four weeks of frenzied consumption in which stress, needless debt, and damage to God’s creation have become its defining hallmarks…Countless unwanted ‘gifts’ will end up, at best in the charity shops, and at worst, in the landfill. If Jesus returned at Christmas, what would he make of us doing all of this in His name?”The Climate Justice group at Our Lady Help of Christians in Kentish Town, north London, sold a book of vegetarian recipes collected from parishioners. “It’s much better for the environment not to eat meat, and the proceeds are going to support a community in Kenya who are being badly affected by climate change,” said member Bernadine Bishop.Church leaders also emphasized the green message this year. On Dec. 8, Pope Benedict turned on solar-powered lights adorning the world’s largest Christmas tree in a ceremony near Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, the patron saint of environmentalists.“It is now clear that humankind has no productive future on earth if we do not educate everyone to be responsible for the creation,” said Benedict before the ceremony.Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams would seem to agree. In a statement referring to the Church of England’s environmental campaign, he said: “For the Church of the 21st century, good ecology is not an optional extra, but a matter of justice. It is therefore central to what it means to be a Christian.” Rector Belleville, IL Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET By Jo SiedleckaPosted Dec 28, 2011 Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Tampa, FL Environment & Climate Change Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 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 Featured Events Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC 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 Hopkinsville, KY Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Martinsville, VA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Press Release Service Rector Albany, NY This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Bath, NC center_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Anglican Communion, Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Rev. Ian T. Douglas, Bishop diocesan.  This action was taken as a result of the refusal of its elected lay leaders to participate in reconciliation efforts with its rector, the Rev. George Kovoor.The action changed St. Paul’s status in ECCT from a “Parish” to a “Worshiping Community,” which puts it now under the exclusive supervision, direction, and control of Bishop Douglas. While the change in status does not affect the worship life or the property of St. Paul’s, the change ended the authority of the previous lay leaders of the church, the Vestry and Wardens, whose job it had been to oversee the property and business affairs of St. Paul’s.St. Paul’s is one of more than 165 Episcopal parishes and worshiping communities in ECCT, spread across the state. The life of all ECCT parishes and worshiping communities, as well as church-related actions by the bishops, priests, deacons, and elected lay leaders, are governed by church laws known as “Canons.”  The Canons require that “Every Parish . . . live within a system of support and accountability that links its life and ministry to that of the Bishops and with those of other Parishes in the Diocese.” The Canons also require that lay leaders of a Parish comply with a godly judgment of the Bishop, and authorize changing a Parish to a Worshiping Community if the leaders refuse.In 2016, the Vestry of St. Paul’s elected Koovor as new rector and entered into an employment Letter of Agreement with Kovoor and Douglas on behalf of St. Paul’s. In October 2017, the Vestry soured on their choice and, in violation of the three-way Letter of Agreement and the Canons, unilaterally tried to fire Kovoor.Douglas responded by carefully evaluating the relationship between Kovoor and St. Paul’s. With help from clergy and lay leaders in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, Douglas worked to reconcile the Vestry of St. Paul’s and Canon Kovoor. Ultimately, after prayerful deliberation and consultation with leaders of ECCT, Douglas announced that he would fulfill his canonical responsibilities and issue a godly judgment about whether Kovoor would remain the rector of St. Paul’s. Without waiting to hear the bishop’s godly judgment, however, the Vestry again attempted to fire Kovoor and tried to lock him out of St. Paul’s in violation of the Letter of Agreement and the Canons.Douglas’s godly judgment, delivered in person at St. Paul’s on June 14, determined that Kovoor would continue as rector of St. Paul’s, and identified specific steps that Kovoor and the vestry were to take to continue to seek reconciliation. While Kovoor faithfully and completely undertook those steps, the vestry refused to cooperate with the godly judgment. Rather, the vestry cut off Kovoor’s salary, tried to evict him from his home which St. Paul’s owns, and filed a lawsuit against him accusing him of fraud and seeking to nullify the Letter of Agreement.In light of the vestry’s misconduct and to return St. Paul’s to the common life of ECCT, the 600 delegates of Convention considered on Oct. 26 a resolution placing St. Paul’s under Douglas’ direct and exclusive supervision and control by changing St. Paul’s to a worshiping community. The Convention unanimously adopted the resolution, which put the change into effect immediately. As a next step Douglas has appointed the Kovoor to serve as St. Paul’s priest-in-charge.Reflecting on the Convention decision and the events leading up to it, Douglas said: “I am thankful to the Annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut for its vote to support my efforts to reconcile the difficult circumstances at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Darien.  I am also deeply appreciate of the leadership and ministry of the Rev. Canon George Kovoor who has faithfully and diligently stood with me and the Episcopal Church in Connecticut as we attempted to achieve reconciliation with the former Vestry of St. Paul’s.  I pray that this new chapter in the life of St. Paul’s will bring healing, restoration, and new life.”In his new role directly in charge of St. Paul’s, Douglas visited the congregation on Oct. 28, to preach, preside at the Eucharist, discuss the vote and status of the church and listen to and pray with the faithful at St. Paul’s.

Monday Madness – Kiwi butchers the Aussie anthem

first_imgMonday Aug 18, 2008 Monday Madness – Kiwi butchers the Aussie anthem Thomas Stowers. Anyone remember that name? I didn’t think so, and despite admittedly knowing nothing about the guy, I’m willing to bet that this performance of his at a 2001 Bledisloe Cup match didn’t do his career any favours.Australia won the match against New Zealand 23-15 at Carisbrook, despite Stowers stuttering through the anthem and basically making a mockery of the honour and opportunity handed to him.With the Tri Nations in full swing in 2008 and a possible decider between the two sides on the cards, we thought this would provide a bit of a chuckle. His ‘performance’ is so bad that it’s laughable, and I bet quite annoying if you’re an Australian.So while on the subject, why do the anthem singers at the beginning of a match always look so out of place, looking like they’ve been chosen by having their names pulled from a hat?This past weekend we watched as the South African Bala Brothers performed a really good rendition of God Defend New Zealand, including the Maori version, but then we saw three Afrikaans guys singing the South African anthem.Where is the logic. Why not just have one group or individual sing both? If you’re good enough to sing another countries anthem, surely you’re good enough to sing your own? It may just be a pet hate of mine, but I find it’s often a shambles before kickoff. Katherine Jenkinson the other hand, is a great example of Wales getting it right. She’s pleasing on the eye, and certainly knows how to sing, unlike a certain Mr Stowers, who’s minute of shame has been dug up again for all to see.

Rue Pierre-Rebière is a straight road measuring 600 metres in length and 25 metres in width. It is bounded by the Batignolles Cemetery and the grounds of the Honoré-de-Balzac High School. This narrow and once neglected street will be transformed by a host of new structures. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultDifferent yet complementary, the two buildings create a dialogue and give a staccato-like rhythm to the street. The first building projects horizontal lines, while the second is resolutely vertical and seems to reach to the treetops. Should passersby care to look, they will be able to glimpse the trees of the cemetery through the space left between the buildings. The apartments in both buildings have generous balconies and the planting creates a living link between the street and the greenery of the cemetery. The apartments face the street and the gardens and are protected from any noise originating on the cemetery side. The homes on the ground floor all have access to well-oriented private gardens (south – south west – south east), which act as a filter in terms of the street. Each building has its own entrance and residents cross a small planted area to reach the entrance halls. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultTop floor living for all In the horizontal building, each floor houses two or three apartments, which are accessed by a lift or by naturally-lit staircase. These apartments have dual or triple aspects. The corner south-facing living rooms look out onto the street. The bedrooms face west or east. Despite the proximity of the cemetery, the kitchens and bathrooms benefit from small, high ventilation openings. In this way the homes are protected from the noise originating from the ring road and views over the cemetery (no windows look straight out onto the cemetery). Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThese apartments have generous terraces and balconies that occupy the entire façade of the apartment with access from the living rooms and the bedrooms. They different floors seem to have been slid one on top of another giving magnificent views of the sky and giving their residents the feeling that they are living on the top floor – whatever floor their home is actually on. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultInterwoven homes Save this picture!section 01In the wooden building, all the apartments have either a garden (on the ground floor) or large balconies. On the ground floor, the living rooms and bedrooms look out onto the gardens on the street and cemetery sides. In the middle floors, small volumes project out giving the impression of a smaller volume in terms of the street. The duplex apartments have dual-aspect living rooms benefiting from balconies at both ends. On the top floors, the apartments benefit from having lower level roofs with very generous dimensions. Save this picture!section 03The black building is a succession of slightly staggered plateaux clad in reflective stainless steel. Their different orientations reflect their environment and from the street the cemetery and its greenery can be glimpsed. This brilliant cladding reflects the sunlight and sends shafts of light onto the soffits of the balconies. These plateaux are separated by black concrete walls;sliding wooden shutters form a continuous controlled band. The living rooms all benefit from a corner position and open out onto generous balconies. Save this picture!elevation 01The wooden building is narrow and hugs the edge of the plot. This volume is completed by small extensions, which house the ground floor bedrooms and form the balconies of the upper floors. The façades are clad in large wooden laths. The building is clad on all four sides so that even when viewed from the cemetery side, the building does not appear impoverished in any way. Openings have been introduced on all sides of the building and all the living rooms have dual aspects giving views of the street and the Honoré-de-Balzac High School. From the other side, the views are of the trees in the cemetery and out beyond the city limits.Project gallerySee allShow lessHong Kong Alternative Car Park Tower / Chris Y. H. Chan + Stephanie M. L.

It was a record year for U.S. poultry and livestock exports helping keep domestic demand for U.S. soy strong, according to Illinois farmer and United Soybean Board Director David Hartke.“Every time we export meat we’re exporting soybean meal through the meat product itself. In Illinois for an example we’ve got a higher basis on our crops because the livestock is throwing that demand out there for the soybeans, the soybean meal and corn, and high waters raise all boats.”U.S. poultry, egg and pork shipments exceeded previous highs for value and volume set in 2011. International beef sales dipped slightly in volume but broke the previous value record.Soy meal constitutes a significant portion of animal feeds. Domestic animal agriculture uses about 97 percent of the domestic supply of U.S. soy meal, making it the U.S. soy industry’s No. 1 customer.Poultry and hogs remain the biggest users of U.S. soy meal. Statistics show poultry consumption is roughly 12.9 million metric tons annually, the meal from 601 million bushels of soybeans. And hogs account for 6.8 million metric tons of U.S. soy meal, the meal from 318 million bushels of soybeans. The soy checkoff partners with organizations like the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) and USA Poultry and Egg Export Council to market U.S. meat and poultry abroad. The checkoff and USMEF are having success too. They helped increase consumption of pork back ribs in Japan from zero to 4.5 million pounds over the last three years.The U.S. meat and poultry export figures for 2012 include:Pork exports nearly reached 2.3 million metric tons, valued at over $6.3 billion.Broiler meat exports, excluding chicken paws, reached 3.3 million metric tons, valued at nearly $4.2 billion.Beef exports reached 1.1 million metric tons, valued at $5.5 billion.Turkey exports reached 361,597 metric tons, valued at $678 million.Chicken paw exports reached 363,974 metric tons, valued at $450.1 million.Egg exports, table eggs and processed egg products in shell equivalents reached 274.1 million dozen, valued at $263.7 million.

Rubberbandits blame the curse of St Munchin

first_imgPrint Advertisement WHILE “corruption and cronyism” are two words that have been bandied about a lot in recent days, Limerick hip-hop comedy duo Rubberbandits have their own unique take on the City of Culture row.Rapper Blindboy Boatclub told the Limerick Post that he believes that the maelstrom that ensued this week was not down to “a sense of corrupt entitlement among the elite”, but in fact, all caused by the curse of St Munchin.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “According to the Bard of Thomond, Munchin put a curse on the people of Limerick because nobody would help him build his church. His curse states that no Limerick person will ever be successful in their own town. We knew from the beginning of the City of Culture festival that it was Munchin’s curse at work, rather than shoddy organisation by unqualified people,” Blindboy explained.The ‘Horse Outside‘ star also revealed that following a heated public meeting in Clarion Hotel last Friday, the duo then hatched a plan to save City of Culture. According to Blindboy, the first part of their mission was to locate the true site of St Munchin’s original church.“It is not opposite King John’s Castle as many believe, but further downriver near Barringtons Pier. It’s a long abandoned tiny tenth century stone church named Kilrush Church, located just beside Villiers in a housing estate,” the Rubberbandit declared.“At approximately 9pm on the night of January 3, we entered the abandoned stone church for a highly secret meeting with the spirit of St Munchin. We encountered the spirit as he sat on a plastic stool where once the altar stood. He was short and white, about the size of a sheep, he wore a Man United Jersey and his hands were sticky from centuries of Cleaves Toffee.“After a tense chat which mirrored the gathering in the Clarion, we reached an agreement. St Munchin promised us that he would lift his curse on Limerick for 365 days and nights. In exchange, we agreed to upload him onto the internet so that he may look at pictures of girls wearing their going out clothes on facebook,” the Limerick rapper announced.The Rubberbandits are now confident that Limerick City of Culture 2014 can proceed to “do the great things it is capable of doing, free from the curse of St Munchin”.And that, as they say, is Limerick Cittaaay! #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday No vaccines in Limerick yet Email Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April center_img Previous articleLimerick show for 65daysofstaticNext articleFurther arrests over robbery of casino winner Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin TAGSBlindboy BoatclubfeaturedHorse OutsideLimerick National City of Culture 2014Music LimerickRubberbanditsSt Munchin Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsRubberbandits blame the curse of St MunchinBy Alan Jacques – January 9, 2014 1803 Twitter #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boylast_img read more

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty said: “For the time being we are dealing with the issue of blind persons. The state government will have to reconsider its decision, subject matter of challenge in the light of Rights of Employees with Disabilities and in particular blind employees.” By a circular dated May 18, the state government has directed all Government Employees belonging to Group A, B, C and D to come for duty at 100% capacity. The bench while hearing a petition filed by Karnataka Federation of the Blind noted: “We direct the state to reconsider its decision, dated May 18, in the light of Rights Guaranteed to the differently abled persons and in particular blind persons. The issue will also have to be addressed in the context of the fact that some of the differently abled persons will need assistance, which will need touching the other persons. Thus we direct the state government to reconsider its decision, considering Rights of differently abled persons as well as genuine difficulties faced by them.” Senior Advocate Jayna Kothari, appearing for the petitioner, had submitted that actions of the respondent State government in issuing the impugned directions requiring 100% duty attendance by state government employees including employees with disabilities is in complete violation of the directions issued by the central government in Office Memorandum dated 28.04.2020 and 14.09.2020, exempting government employees with disabilities from roster duty during COVID-19 pandemic and hence deserves to be quashed and set aside. Further, it was said “By requiring 100% attendance in duty from all government employees with disabilities, especially employees with blindness and other disabilities who require physical assistance in travel and at work from other persons, the Respondents are putting the government employees with disabilities and other staff members at a high risk of infection with COVID-19.” The petition prays for order or direction, setting aside the Circular dated 18.05.2020, issued by the Respondent No. as it is in violation of the Central Government Office Memorandum dated 14.9.2020 exempting employees with disabilities from roster duty during the COVID 19 pandemic, and direct the Respondents to exempt government employees with disabilities from roster duty and treat the same as special paid leave. Or direct the respondents to provide private transportation facilities for employees with disabilities, especially for persons with blindness, where exemption from roster duty is not possible, or to reimburse them with costs of private transport arranged by them. The court has directed the state government to place on record the decision taken by December 11 and posted the matter for further hearing on December 14.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more
