But also does so by his Spirit,” he added.Highlighting the need to scale up the international response, the Archbishop reflected on the need to overcome fears. “We must go by the science, not by the fear.”He also emphasized the contribution of faith in partnership with government and other institutions, saying: “The role of the churches and other faith communities is absolutely crucial.”Anglican dioceses, alongside other faith communities, have been active in the Ebola response in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, working closely with government agencies. Church health teams are working to strengthen health systems, while church leaders and volunteers are providing community education, support and pastoral care.

Anglicans in West Africa are responding with their own resources and with support from Anglican and Episcopal agencies, such as Episcopal Relief & Development, Us (former USPG) and Trinity Wall Street.The Diocese of Guinea  is working nationally alongside other institutions to educate people, to distribute protection kits, and to equip church clinics with essential materials.Dioceses in Sierra Leone and Liberia have similar activities. The Diocese of Liberia has also supported a feeding program with technical advice from WHO at a newly opened Ebola Treatment Unit in Monrovia. The provision of a hot-nutritional meal for four weeks led to the full recovery of at least 150 patients.Meanwhile in Freetown, Sierra Leone, the Anglican Bishop has also provided land for the construction of a 21-bed Ebola isolation center.The Anglican Alliance is supporting the coordination of the response in West Africa and sharing this learning across the Anglican Communion.For further information, visit www.anglicanalliance.org and read: http://www.anglicanalliance.org/news/19844/churches-continue-in-fight-against-ebola-whilst-prayers-are-offered-by-christians-worldwide Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Bath, NC Featured Jobs & Calls The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit a Job Listing Rector Albany, NY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Pittsburgh, PA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Welby joins faith leaders calling for action on climate change

first_imgWelby joins faith leaders calling for action on climate change June 27, 2015 at 10:40 am Good news and good article. One phrase bugs me a bit: the description of 2⁰C as “the threshold above which it is considered that the impacts of climate change will be most severe” is somewhat hard to follow, and in particular the phrase “most severe” is unclear. It could be read as saying that climate change impacts reach a “most severe” level at 2⁰C, above which the impacts remain “most severe”, i.e., the worst they could be. That’s not the case. It’s generally accepted that any impacts would get ever more severe with higher temperature rises.It would be closer to the mark to say that the expected impacts of a 2⁰C rise have been generally considered as too severe to accept. Policy makers have to look at the best climate models they can get and make human judgment calls about the largest acceptable climate change we can tolerate.There is no “most severe” in a purely physical sense, only “more severe” and “even more severe”. Only human judgment can take the analytic graphs of expected severity versus temperature rise and add a line showing “too severe”.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 [Lambeth Palace press release] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has joined faith leaders in Britain pledging to fast and pray for the success of key international negotiations over climate change, in a new declaration warning of the “huge challenge” facing the world over global warming.Representatives of the major faiths, including Welby, said climate change has already hit the poorest of the world hardest and urgent action is needed now to protect future generations.In the Lambeth Declaration, which will be launched June 17, signatories call on faith communities to recognize the pressing need to make the transition to a low carbon economy.The call comes ahead of the international climate change talks in Paris this December where negotiators from more than 190 nations will gather to discuss a new global agreement on climate change, aimed at limiting greenhouse gas emissions from 2020 when current commitments run out.The Declaration, signed by the archbishops of Canterbury and York and other faith leaders in the U.K., warns that world leaders must agree to reduce emissions to avoid average temperatures rising beyond 2⁰C, widely considered to be the threshold above which it is considered that the impacts of climate change will be most severe.The original declaration was hosted by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and signed by faith leaders in 2009 ahead of the Climate Summit in Copenhagen.The declaration is being launched Wednesday, June 17, by Bishop of Salisbury Nicholas Holtam, the Church of England’s lead bishop on the environment, at ecumenical services in Westminster, London, to mark the national lobby of U.K. Parliament over the Paris talks.Signatories include representatives from the Muslim, Sikh and Jewish communities as well as the Catholic Church in England and Wales, Methodist Conference and other denominations and faiths, with more leaders continuing to sign the Declaration.Hundreds more people are expected to sign up to the declaration as it travels rounds the country during a summer of pilgrimages.View text of the Lambeth Declaration and full list of signatories on the Church of England website Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector

Set at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges is a collection of timber clad, gabled structures. They slip past each other, opening spaces for courtyards, cooking, and fire. Exterior shells of native timber boards and shingle roof are founded overcast in situ concrete masses, bracketing the interior spaces within an adding weight and strength to the voluminous interiors.Save this picture!© Simon Wilson with Amelia HolmesThe client had been collecting vintage timber for years, stockpiling from different parts of the country – large beams, pallets of native timbers – and he had a massive supply of totara. We thought we could build him a house that actually curates the timber collection. So there’s a patchwork of these different timbers and what we thought about is how to bring them all together tonally so it doesn’t end up a mess.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe timber, while it can be used to create solidity and warmth and mass, can also be incredibly fine and that is the tension we enjoyed playing with, and certainly enjoyed the result. While there are some very large and rustic elements, there is a fineness and a lightness to the enclosure and layering of it.Save this picture!© Simon Wilson with Amelia HolmesThe roof is part of a translation of a palette of timber. The idea came to us early on: with such a strong mix of timbers, how can we use the timber as a roof? The roofs are the most dominant elements in terms of the forms of the buildings. So it allowed us to develop a strong sense of continuity between the different buildings.Save this picture!© Simon Wilson with Amelia HolmesProject gallerySee allShow lessKiKi Noodle House / Golucci Interior ArchitectsSelected ProjectsDouble House / Trim Architecture GroupSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•New Zealand Houses Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922704/forest-house-fearon-hay-architects Clipboard Photographs:  Simon Wilson with Amelia Holmes Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Forest House / Fearon Hay ArchitectsSave this projectSaveForest House / Fearon Hay ArchitectsSave this picture!© Simon Wilson with Amelia Holmes+ 14Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects Architects: Fearon Hay Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” New Zealand Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922704/forest-house-fearon-hay-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFearon Hay ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew ZealandPublished on August 13, 2019Cite: “Forest House / Fearon Hay Architects” 12 Aug 2019.

Band Aid 20 song breaks record for most digital music downloads

All proceeds from the single going to The Band Aid Trust.However, it was made available last week for online download and purchase, and proved very popular, despite Apple’s iTunes service choosing not to sell it. “With the track being available for download we’re able to raise tens of thousands of pounds for the children of Africa even before a single CD is sold”, said Ben Drury, Managing Director of 7 Digital Media, the company behind the official download version of Do They Know It’s Christmas.The launch of Band Aid 20 was handled by Rainier PR, which donated its services at no charge.The Band Aid 20 track can be downloaded for £1.49 with a special bundle including the original for £1.99. The video is also available for download at £2.50. Ringtone and images for mobile phones are also available for purchase, as is a video version for mobile phones.Sadly it seems that the track download only works if you are using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer v5.01 (or higher) browser, so we couldn’t buy it online.At the site you can also order the CD or make a donation to the Band Aid Trust. Band Aid 20 song breaks record for most digital music downloads ‘Do they know it’s Christmas?’, the new version of the Band Aid song, has become the highest grossing digital music download ever.Sales of the song on 7 Digital Media’s Web site (www.buybandaid.com) alone have raised more than £15,000 for the Band Aid Trust, and this is only one of the Web sites selling Band Aid downloads.The original Band Aid version of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ was recorded in London on 25 November 1984, and released as a seven-inch vinyl single on 7 December. It entered the UK chart at No. 1 on December 15, and stayed there for five weeks, selling more than three million copies.

Movement against oligarchy finds new life

first_imgPicture it: the center of a beautiful but decaying city. A lavish military parade and concert is held for the rich politicians and bosses who’ve sucked it dry.Thousands of police in riot gear, brought from all parts of the country, protect wealthy partygoers. Ordinary residents struggle for a glimpse of the festivities behind tall, chain-link fences.When hundreds of protesters arrive, chanting and peacefully demanding entrance to the city’s main square, police respond with violence and tear gas.Is this the opening of a dystopian novel? A scene from the 2016 U.S. Democratic or Republican party convention?Actually, it happened on Aug. 27 in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, a small eastern European country. The occasion was the 25th anniversary of the country’s independence — during the breakup of the socialist Soviet Union in 1991.For many Moldovans, the contrast between an opulent party for a few at the expense of poverty and repression for the many summed up the quarter-century since capitalist rule was restored.Since 1991, the country’s new “independent” ruling class of oligarchs have rushed headlong into the arms of the U.S. and Western European imperialist powers. But ordinary Moldovans have found their means of life reduced many times, while young people have left the country in droves, seeing no future at home.“At a time when Moldova has closed at least 30 schools because their buildings are in very bad condition and the budget has no money to prepare them for winter, when hospitals have no medicines, and children’s homes do not have food or hygiene items, we consider it inadmissible to spend 50 million lei [Moldova’s currency] for a parade and song and dance at the plaza,” Ana Ursachi told Workers World.Ursachi, Moldova’s most renowned defense attorney and an activist in her own right, initiated the protest that challenged this festival of vultures. Known by the hash tag #NuMaTem (I’m not afraid), her call for Moldovan residents to raise their voices spread like wildfire over social media in the weeks leading up to Independence Day.Workers, farmers, students, parents and children, politicians and activists, recorded and posted videos declaring “I’m not afraid” in defiance of the Moldovan government. Controlled by powerful oligarch Vlad Plahotniuc, it has grown increasingly repressive and openly corrupt.Plahotniuc and several of his hangers-on are suspected of stealing a billion euros of international aid money from the national banking system — displeasing the country’s Western backers. The government has cracked down on internal opponents in a desperate bid to remain in power.Ursachi explained: “Since the government did not heed the voice of society, many different people, united by the #NuMaTem action, took to the streets to boo the government, considering the pompous parade a feast during a plague.“The demonstration was peaceful,” she emphasized. “But the brutish regime, believing that the people were ruining their holiday, used force to disperse the demonstrators. This happened on a street just 500 meters from the parade and music.”Moldova’s Interior Minister Alexander Zhizdana blamed “aggressive” protesters for the police use of tear gas. Acting President Nicolae Timofti even presented awards to Zhizdana and other security officials in recognition of their “personal contribution” to the security of the military parade, Jurnal.md reported Sept. 2.Officials also launched an investigation of the protest “instigators,” including Ursachi, who has been subject to a slander campaign in media controlled by Plahotniuc and other oligarchs. (NewsMD, Sept. 2)Meanwhile, on Sept. 5, Ursachi, former parliamentary deputy Alexander Petkov and Balti Municipal Councilor Helen Gritsko filed suit against the government for its illegal use of tear gas against the peaceful assembly, backed by “a huge amount of evidence … [including] terabytes of videos showing that police used the gas against the elderly, children and people with disabilities.” (Omega.md)“By the way, ordinary people who wanted to watch the parade were not allowed into the square either,” Ursachi told WW. “They were obliged to stand behind a fence while about 100 deputies, ministers, the chairman of the Constitutional Court, and businessmen and politicians loyal to the regime celebrated!”One year of persecution of Petrenko GroupSept. 6 marked one year since the arrest of seven leaders and activists of Moldova’s Red Bloc communist party at a protest in Chisinau. Ursachi is also the attorney for the Petrenko Group, as they are known, named for Red Bloc leader Grigory Petrenko.The Petrenko Group spent several months in jail. Today, they are still subject to so-called judicial control — a modified form of house arrest that prevents them from traveling outside Moldova or even attending protests.Facing trumped-up charges that could land them in prison for years, the Petrenko Group’s case has been stalled for months by the country’s courts. The group says the judges are in Plahotniuc’s pocket. Instead of proceeding with the case and allowing Red Bloc members to present a defense, the courts simply extend the “judicial control” regime month to month.In early 2016, a large protest movement, including opposition parties across the political spectrum, threatened to topple the Moldovan government. Among other demands, this movement called for early parliamentary elections. Officials and the judiciary moved to derail the protests and placate mainstream opposition parties by instead calling for presidential elections, now scheduled for Oct. 30. The Moldovan president is a figurehead with little real power.The Red Bloc urged opponents of the oligarchy to boycott the staged presidential election and continue building a broad protest movement. Eventually, most opposition parties, including the moderate Socialists and the left-nationalist Our Party, bowed to government pressure and entered the race. But the revolutionary left sees signs of hope in the #NuMaTem mobilization.“The civil disobedience action on August 27 was initiated by ordinary people and civil society activists,” Pavel Grigorchuk, member of the Petrenko Group and editor of the news site Grenada.md, told WW. “It attracted a lot of self-organized concerned citizens who oppose the criminal oligarchic regime. I assess the level of organization of the protest movement very positively.“Perhaps this autumn and winter will be unseasonably hot in Moldova,” Grigorchuk said, “and the changes for which many Moldovans have struggled for years will finally come.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Assemblymember Holden’s Bill to Provide More Affordable Housing for Former Foster Youth, Homeless and Disabled Veterans Clears First Committee

first_img Business News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Assemblymember Chris Holden’s bill to expand housing opportunities for former foster youth, homeless and disabled veterans, AB 2442, passed the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee with a 6-1 vote today. AB 2442 allows housing developers to obtain multiple density bonuses from local government if the housing development sets aside ten percent for former foster youth, disabled veterans, or formerly homeless individuals.Disabled veterans and transitional foster youth face a serious affordable housing problem,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “It is vital that we give our local communities tools to meet this challenge.”A multiple density bonus is a zoning tool that enables developers to build more units than normally allowed. AB 2442 expands state law relating to multiple density bonuses that have worked to address rising housing costs and a subsequent lack of reliable, affordable housing that plagues Californian’s most vulnerable populations.“I’m proud to author this bill as it came directly from a constituent, Jeannette Mann, who has been active in All Saints Church and the 41st Assembly District helping foster youth and the community at large,” said Holden.
