El Consejo Ejecutivo vislumbra la labor del nuevo trienio

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal comenzó el 15 de noviembre su ministerio de liderazgo para el trienio 2016-2018 siendo llamado a encabezar el Movimiento de Jesús y a ayudar a la Iglesia a extenderse y a cambiar para poder responder a los desafíos que enfrenta.El obispo primado Michael Curry le recordó al Consejo la sensación de logro y orientación [que había] al término de la Convención General en Salt Lake City el 3 de julio. “Había un sentir proveniente de la Convención de que acabábamos de hacer algo importante”, dijo él en sus palabras de apertura. “Creo que había una visión común, un sentido común de misión”.Él lo definió como un llamado de clarín y “todos lo oímos y lo oímos juntos”.La evangelización, la reconciliación racial y el Movimiento de Jesús son nombres que se le han dado a ese llamado, dijo Curry. Y es un llamado que “nos da sencillamente una enorme oportunidad como Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia, como su junta directiva si así lo quieren, para unirnos en brindar algún liderazgo y en compartir un liderazgo en seguir a Jesús.“Aporta claridad y la claridad es la que sienta todas las pautas en el mundo. Al menos uno sabe adonde va, incluso si las tormentas nos rodean; [y] uno tiene la impresión de que es aquí donde marchamos juntos”.El obispo primado Michael Curry predica el 15 de noviembre durante la eucaristía en la sesión de apertura de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo de Linthicum Heights, Maryland, del 15 al 18 de noviembre. Los miembros del Consejo Alexizendria Link, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental, y Steven Nishibayashi de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, pueden verse en el fondo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Curry le dijo al Consejo que él quiere expandir esa claridad de dos formas. En primer lugar, desde ahora hasta la reunión del Consejo del 26 al 28 de febrero, dijo que trabajará con su equipo administrativo para proponer un plan sobre la manera en que todas las partes del personal y del Consejo trabajarán juntas, “cómo colaboraremos, cómo nuestras diversas partes podrían colaborar para avanzar en la obra de la evangelización y de la reconciliación racial y en todo lo que hacemos”.El Obispo Primado dijo también que quiere nombrar a un tercer canónigo, además de los Rdos. Michael Hunn y Charles Robertson que fueron nombrados como canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal y canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal, respectivamente. El tercer canónigo sería responsable de llevar a cabo lo que él llamó el ministerio directo del Obispo Primado en la labor de evangelización y reconciliación racial, trabajando tanto con el personal denominacional como con la comunidad en general.Citando el liderazgo de Curry como Obispo Primado, el compromiso de la Convención General con la evangelización y la reconciliación racial, su reorganización del presupuesto y un cambio en la manera en que las diócesis financian la obra de la denominación, la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, dijo que “el escenario está listo para que participemos más clara, plena y entusiastamente en la misión de Dios para la Iglesia Episcopal”.Sin embargo, dijo ella en sus palabras de apertura, que la Iglesia necesita “alguna labor de discernimiento remedial” en la cual “reconsidere la misión de Dios para la Iglesia Episcopal en nuestro tiempo”. Ella citó una indagación que llevó a cabo Matthew Price, vicepresidente de investigación y datos del Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia, la cual arroja que de las congregaciones que habían tenido un clérigo en 2006, el 30% no tenía ninguno en 2013. “Luego, si el viejo modelo de un edificio dedicado con un sacerdote de jornada completa es lo que se nos exige para realizar la misión de Dios, estamos en un lío”, advirtió Jennings.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, fracciona el pan el 15 de noviembre durante la eucaristía de la sesión de apertura de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo, en Linthicum Heights, Maryland, del 15 al 18 de noviembre. El Rdo. Frank Logue, miembro del Consejo, asiste a Jennings en la celebración. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Jennings dijo también que la indagación mostraba que entre 2006 y 2013, las congregaciones habían experimentado una disminución de un 7 por ciento en sus ingresos operativos, un 8 por ciento en los ingresos por concepto de promesas y un 11 por ciento en tarjetas de promesa, pero no había habido disminución alguna en el monto de las compensaciones del clero. Gastar una proporción mayor que en el pasado de los recursos de la Iglesia en la paga del clero no es sostenible, advirtió ella.Por consiguiente, la Iglesia Episcopal se encuentra “cruzando un nuevo umbral que nunca habíamos previsto”, para ponerlo en las palabras del poeta John O’Donohue, dijo Jennings. Y agregó que hay dos maneras de pensar respecto a ese tipo de cambio.“Si pensamos en cruzar ese umbral como guardianes de la institución de la Iglesia, casi todo parecerá pérdida y decadencia”, dijo. “Es deprimente concebir el cambio en la Iglesia de esta manera, y no lo recomiendo. Y ello no parece realmente como el camino para discernir la misión de Dios”.En lugar de eso, ella instó al Consejo a enfrentarse a ese umbral “como personas que estamos seguras de nuestra identidad como hijos de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal”.“El mundo podría girar en torno nuestro, pero sabemos quienes somos y podemos extender nuestra identidad para darle cabida a los cambios que necesitamos hacer”, recalcó. “Dios sabe que somos el pueblo de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal, y Dios sabe que no se trata de edificios ni de clérigos de jornada completa ni de estatus social ni de legados. Y porque Dios sabe esas cosas, yo creo que Dios tiene una misión para nosotros”.La reunión del 15 al 18 de noviembre tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente y el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados.– La Rda.

He certainly is a whole lot calmer than I would have been, if that had of happened to me!!! The Sanford mayor seems like such a nice guy. Violence is everywhere, and nowhere is safe anymore!

Tana Umaga lines up and smashes into older brother Mike Umaga in 1999

first_imgTuesday Sep 16, 2014 Tana Umaga lines up and smashes into older brother Mike Umaga in 1999 Last week it was announced that the All Blacks will play Samoa in Samoa for the first time ever. To mark the occasion, here is a quick video of a great moment between the two sides in 1999, featuring the Umaga brothers as they went head to head. A week ago it was confirmed that the long overdue, historic meeting between New Zealand and Samoa will take place in Apia in July 2015. The match will serve as preparation for both sides for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, but more significantly it will be their first ever meeting on Samoan soil.It’s been a long time coming, with many of the strongest current and past New Zealand stars coming from Samoan heritage. The gesture will go a long way with the extremely talented nation.“Many players in our team have strong ties to Samoa so this Test will be a great occasion for all of us. It will only enhance the links between our two countries,” said All Black coach Steve Hansen. “There is also a lot of respect for Manu Samoa and playing them at home will make this a great challenge – one we will all look forward to.”The match will take place on 8 July 2015, with broadcast details to be confirmed nearer the time.In June of 1999 the two sides met at North Harbour Stadium in New Zealand and there was a great moment in the very first minute of the match, as Samoa’s Mike Umaga failed to find touch, but instead found his younger brother, Tana.The hard running winger zeroed in on him, showing that there’s no room for sentiment on the rugby field. Mike is seven years his senior, so maybe Tana had a bit to prove. Umaga senior tackled him well, but it was a decent bit of contact, perhaps with neither player getting the upper hand.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

A 65 square metre alterations and addition to the rear of an existing Federation brick and tile house which aims to extend the perceptual space of the project. Daylight is funneled deep from the north, morning light reflected in from the east, filtered zenithal light washed down from above and ambient light scooped inwards from the south. These same apertures capture visual moments from both the adjacent and surrounding site through a large northern glazed and screen sliding wall, a considered eastern slither and a southern clerestory window projected beyond the buildings edge. The project is formally manipulated to sculpt atmospheric and functional light into designed spaces thus turning an originally introverted residence inside-out. Save this picture!© Bo WongThe project is located near the Swan River in the southern suburb of Bicton. It is a small alterations and additions, that replaced a derelict, lean-to at the rear of an existing Federation brick and tile house. In the east by an attached neighboring dwelling with an irregular eastern boundary, a 6m high boundary parapet wall to the north and shared access right of way to the south. The project therefore sought to extend perceptual space through the considered placement of apertures capturing visual moments far beyond the prescribed site boundary. The external and internal form of the new work was manipulated to sculpt atmospheric and functional light into crafted spaces, thus turning the originally introverted residence inside-out. One enters, through a small light filled aperture located at the end of the generously volumed hallway of the existing residence. A large northern glazed & screened sliding wall, a considered eastern slither, filtered zenithal light and a southern clearstory window projected beyond the buildings edge. Save this picture!© Bo WongThe character and memory of the existing cottage are maintained as the primary streetscape. Only subtle hints of the new addition are revealed between interstitial spaces when viewed from the streets edge. From the link space, day to day living spills onto the outdoor decks & steps. Therefore neighbourly interaction is encouraged in side yards not concealed in private backyards. The new built form has strong connections to the existing site and house, whereby the surrounding context directly influences the ‘form’ of the building and the position & sizes of the resulting apertures. The neighbouring parapet wall to the northern boundary required an elevated light scoop to provide for winter sun. The fire rated boundary wall construction to the east, encouraged zenithal light to filter into the laundry space whilst a large clearstory southern window in bathroom provides privacy from the adjacent neighbouring properties. Save this picture!© Bo WongThe originally narrow termite ridden lean-to, with its poorly located toilet and adjacent disused dining space, was demolished and replaced with a isolated laundry, bathroom and a functional dining / kitchen space which has became heart of the house. The considered placement of program not only provides strong spatial connections between the old and new but also activates previously under utilised spaces both inside and beyond. The architecture of the project is not found in quantitative square metre assessments but in the experiential qualities, which pervade each space. A new link set perpendicular to the existing hall binds new spaces to the existing residences and intertwines adjoining programmatic functions. This circulation space is economically set within the dimensions of adjoining areas whilst a clear counterpoint between old and new is maintained via a low ceiling and the subsequent compression of overhead volume. The bathroom and laundry are masked physically and visually through operable door panels. However there still remains the attempt to provide delightful, naturally Lit sculpted spaces within. Save this picture!© Bo WongThe detailing of a simple external form, clad in a low cost corrugated skin, provided the opportunity for a greater emphasis to be placed on the materiality and manipulation of interior experience. The small project works within 65sqm of contained built footprint but ultimately activates 150sqm of previously unused surface. Not only were new outlooks provided beyond the definable limits of the project but the design also allows a new and immediate experience of place – previously not offered by the old home. Save this picture!© Bo WongThrough the considered crafting of natural light all spaces remain well lit throughout the day without the requirement for artificial lighting. When night prevails, all light fittings are low energy LED. A large sliding screen to the north, covered with stretched sail-shade fabric is operated to regulate sunlight & ventilation as well as provide privacy and a surface for movie projections. Sustainability was sought not through complex technical solutions but through the original decision to retain the majority of the original family home. The scheme proposed a reworking of the existing 2×1 into a 3×2 configuration, rather than a tabula rasa approach. During the course of construction 70% of waste materials were recycled through a waste management company. Save this picture!© Bo WongThe selection of a light coloured roof and wall cladding aimed to minimise solar absorption. This was initially a variation to council regulations due to it being deemed a highly reflective material. With this project as a contributing precedent the council are now undertaking the process of amending their town-planning scheme to allow for the use of these efficient building skins. The clients provided a clear direction for their aspirations of both physical and visual engagement within the building, whilst the builder’s openness to refinement aided the precise rafting of such experiences. We therefore see the project team as consisting of the client, architect and builder intertwining knowledge in the collective pursuit of an architectural resolution.

The name pays tribute to the 30-year collaboration between the bank and the AHA. For three decades, both have united in the fight against heart disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers of both men and women. Survivors of heart disease and stroke, heart health champions and AHA advocates each with unique, inspiring stories will ride on the float as it travels through Pasadena on New Year’s Day. It will be decorated with more than 15,000 flowers and will include a daytime fireworks display. Phoenix Decorating Company will design and build the float that will stand 25 feet high, 18 feet wide and 55 feet long and is estimated to weigh 25,000 pounds.To add to the celebration, the familiar song by the Bee Gees,“Stayin’ Alive,” will be playing in the background. As the lyrics appropriately point out, “whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother, you’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.” The tune aligns with Union Bank and the AHA’s mission to save lives by reducing the number of deaths attributed to heart disease and stroke. Furthermore, the AHA often uses the tempo of the song to teach people the correct rate of chest compressions when performing CPR. Studies show that when CPR training uses this song to teach the technique, people are more likely to remember the correct rhythm and feel more confident performing the life-saving skill.For 30 years, Union Bank has been completely engaged in multiple aspects of the AHA’s work, including fundraising, education, volunteer leadership, employee involvement and health messaging. In the last eight years alone, the bank’s employees and clients have donated nearly $7 million in support of the AHA’s critical research, education, and prevention programs.Union Bank’s support for the AHA is one facet of its broader commitment to community reinvestment throughout the areas where it operates. Last year, Union Bank contributed more than $13.7 million in charitable contributions to a wide range of non-profit organizations, and its employees donated nearly 75,000 hours of volunteer time to make a difference in their communities.“We are truly excited to participate in the parade and all the tradition and pageantry that it has come to represent. This latest manifestation of our long-standing relationship with the AHA speaks directly to the heart of our mission to empower men and women to live longer, healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke,” said Pierre Habis, head of the Consumer and Business Bank for Union Bank.“We are honored to join Union Bank at the Tournament of Roses in celebration of three decades of collaboration to save lives and create a culture of health in our communities. Our alliance has made a huge impact through critical research funding and community outreach. We look forward to beginning our 30th year by bringing a healthy message to the millions of people who watch the Rose Parade,” said Kathy Rogers, Executive Vice President for the American Heart Association Western States Affiliate.The 127th annual Rose Parade will take place on New Year’s Day 2016 in Pasadena, California. Originally started on January 1, 1890, the event is produced by the non-profit Tournament of Roses Association. The Rose Parade is an integral part of America’s New Year Celebration® and includes decorative floats, marching bands, and equestrian units. This year’s theme grew out of the unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the National Park Service.About the Tournament of Roses®The Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade®, the Rose Bowl Game® and a variety of associated events. Nine hundred thirty-five volunteer members act as ambassadors of the organization and contribute upwards of 80,000 hours of manpower each year. The 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda and themed “Find Your Adventure,” will take place Friday, January 1, 2016, followed by the 102nd Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual.

Steve Guggenmos, VP of Multifamily Research & Modeling at Freddie Mac said, “Freddie Mac’s pilot program in this space sought to demonstrate how secondary market infrastructure focused on SFRs might benefit the marketplace.” He also noted that the single-family rental market assumes great significance as data reveals it to be an “affordable housing option for many American families.” The growth of SFRs is also driven in part by difficulties in achieving homeownership, according to the paper. Among survey respondents who planned to purchase a home within the next five years, the financial requirements of purchasing a home such as down payment and a sufficient credit score were cited as primary concerns. SFRs allowed these aspiring homeowners to pursue single-family living either in the interim or longer term. The key findings of the paper found that SFR makes up about half of the overall rental market—the single largest segment of the rental market by valuation and households served. An overwhelming majority of rentals in the SFR space is owned and operated by individuals or very small investors. The middle-tier market, on the other hand, is a slow-growing investor market with further potential for growth. Large-scale institutional investors constitute only approximately 1 percent of SFRs, as they are still new to the market.The paper also indicated that out of the 22.6 million renter households living in SFRs, about five million live in rural areas, while 17.6 million live in non-rural areas—comprising 66 percent of the stock. According to Freddie Mac, this speaks to the importance of this form of rental, meeting the needs of rural residents. Conversely, SFRs are also an important part of the rental market for households living in Areas of Concentrated Poverty (ACP). In non-rural markets, where there is a greater concentration of homes, more middle-tier and institutional involvement was recorded at 4.8 percent of properties associated with portfolio sizes 51 to 2,000 properties and 1.6 percent in portfolios with greater than 2,000 properties— leaving 93.6 percent of the properties in small and very small portfolios.

Abuse investigation underway at home of Chiefs’ star wide receiver Tyreek Hill

first_imgNick Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(OVERLAND PARK, Kan.) — A police investigation into the abuse of a child is underway at the home of Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill, according to police reports.Two police reports in the past two weeks detail an investigation into allegations of battery, child abuse and neglect at the Overland Park, Kansas, home. The police reports were obtained by Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC-TV.Hill is not mentioned in the police report from Thursday, but his partner, Crystal Espinal, is listed under “others involved.”The victim, listed only as a “juvenile,” suffered a minor injury in the incident, according to the report.Hill has not been charged with any crime.The Kansas City Chiefs acknowledged they were aware of the incident in a statement.“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” it reads. “We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We will have no further comment at this time.”Hill has been elected to the Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons in the NFL, all with the Chiefs. He was an All Pro as a returner in his rookie season and as a wide receiver last season. He has twice finished in the top 10 in the league in receiving yards.News of the abuse incidents broke on the same day Kareem Hunt, Hill’s former teammate, was suspended for eight games by the league after video emerged last year of him shoving and kicking a woman in February 2018. Hunt was immediately cut by the Chiefs, and later signed with the Cleveland Browns.Hill’s agent did not respond to a request for comment from KMBC-TV. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
