General Convention commits to racial reconciliation and becoming a ‘Beloved…

first_img Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Collierville, TN Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] Efforts that began in 2015 with action by General Convention, when racial reconciliation was identified as a priority of the Episcopal Church, are bearing fruit in work done during the 79th General Convention.That emphasis was made clear early on in the convention, when a joint session of deputies and bishops spent 90 minutes focused on racial reconciliation, one of three TEConversations.The TEConversation featured three speakers: Arno Michaelis, a former leader of a worldwide racist skinhead organization who now works to get people out of similar hate groups; Catherine Meeks, director of the Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta; and the Rev. Nancy Frausto, a “Dreamer” who come to the United States without documents as a seven-year-old child.Framing discussions throughout the convention was the concept of “Becoming Beloved Community,” the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation and justice. It represents a series of interrelated commitments around which Episcopalians can organize efforts to respond to racial injustice and build a community of people working for reconciliation and healing:Telling the truth about the church and raceProclaiming the dream of beloved communityPracticing the way of loveRepairing the breach in society and institutionsResolution D022 provides $5 million over the next three years to help dioceses and other entities of the church to respond to racial injustice. The Rev. John Kitagawa, deputy from Arizona and a member of the joint legislative committee on Racial Justice and Reconciliation, said most of the money will go to grants to help this work in communities – dioceses, congregations and regions. “Many things in the past have been top-down,” he said. “This is bottom-up.”Bishop Prince Singh of Rochester, bishop chair of the legislative committee, said he was most excited about a new initiative adopted by the convention – a Beloved Community summit. Resolution A228 provides for a gathering of leaders working in racial reconciliation and racial justice across the Episcopal Church before the end of 2019.Singh said the summit will “share best practices, build networks and strengthen curricula. It’s building capacity so Episcopalians can play a leadership role in their communities and not just in the church.”Kitagawa said the event will be an aid to people who are engaged in this work. “It can be lonely,” he said, so understanding who is in the work together will help.The convention also tackled the issue of expanding anti-racism efforts to include racial reconciliation. That is reflected in Resolution B004, which started as a resolution calling for end to use of the term “anti-racism” as spiritually imprecise. It was amended to encourage continuing work to address institutional and systemic racism while acknowledging the need to work for healing, justice and reconciliation.Singh said some people welcomed the chance to move forward with racial reconciliation, healing and justice, while others feared losing a commitment to dismantle racism.He also said he was excited about a new framework for training that “can be a part of transformation and formation.” Resolutions A045 reaffirmed the necessity and importance of anti-racism training while calling for ongoing spiritual formation and education focused on racial healing, justice, and reconciliation.“Racism isn’t a binary black-white issue,” he said, as it affects Asians, Latinos, Native Americans and others. With the church made up of diverse languages and cultures, “training needs to take that into account,” he said.– Melodie Woerman is director of communications for the Diocese of Kansas and is a member of the ENS General Convention reporting team.

Unfortunately, one of these labs processing a significant number of our public tests has been unable to fulfill its obligation.AdventHealth has terminated its contract with this lab and we share in the disappointment and frustration this situation has created. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and uncertainty it has caused.AdventHealth uses many other labs across multiple states to provide COVID-19 tests for our communities.This issue impacts more than 25,000 people throughout Central Florida. This situation has created unacceptable delays, and we do not have confidence in the reliability of the tests. We are working diligently to notify and appropriately accommodate those who are impacted. They will be receiving a letter from us and may also receive a phone call.These individuals fall into two categories:  A. Those whose samples were processed, and whose results provided by the lab are not deemed reliable.(1) Individuals who had unreliable positive results will require retesting.(2) Individuals with unreliable negative results who are symptomatic need to seek care and may require retesting.(3) Individuals with unreliable negative results who are asymptomatic but request to be retested will be offered testing pending availability.B. Those whose samples are at the lab in question and are part of the backlog will not be tested; therefore no result will be available.(1) These patients may require retesting if they are symptomatic.(2) We have directed the lab to destroy these samples in accordance with the law.If someone is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms they should seek care immediately.“We take our responsibility to safeguard everyone who entrusts us with their care very seriously. We’ve made significant investments to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 in Central Florida and will continue to stand beside our neighbors in these unprecedented times,” said Daryl Tol, president and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Teams across our organization are working around-the-clock to remedy the situation.

Lolo Lui’s huge tackle on James Stannard at the Glasgow Sevens

first_imgFriday May 10, 2013 Lolo Lui’s huge tackle on James Stannard at the Glasgow Sevens This weekend the London Sevens takes place at Twickenham after another fascinating round in Glasgow a week ago. Here is a quick look at a big tackle that took place in the Samoa vs Australia game, as Lolo Lui demolished James Stannard. South Africa won the tournament after beating New Zealand in the final, while Samoa had a series leg that they would rather forget, losing to Canada, narrowly beating Russia and then losing the Bowl semi final to Australia.In that game there was this stand out moment for the Samoans however, as Lui made a sensational hit, knocking the wind out of Stannard to the point that he had to leave the field.Samoa are fourth in the standings going into the final leg of the world series, in London. While New Zealand have won this year’s series, South Africa and Fiji will be gunning for second place.Hosts England are in eighth place, but will no doubt be looking for a good showing in front of their home crowd.

Stauss, and Past Imperial Potentate and Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Shriners Hospitals for Children, Douglas E. Maxwell.Groundbreaking ceremonies typically feature executives and officials of an organization, but at Wednesday’s event, Patient Ambassadors Rachel Roitman and Brock Waidmann led the ceremony as co-hosts, introducing speakers and thanking all the Shriners, government officials, and staff members who are working on the project. Larry Adamson, P.G.M., member of the Board of Governors served as “Master of Ceremonies” and assisted Brock and Rachel in the introductions of key invited guests and dignitaries. Other patient ambassadors who participated in the ceremony included brothers Alex and Ryan Post, Alyssa Mercado, Anthony Sanchez, Gianna Mantucca and Ana Paula Pinto.The young co-hosts invited a number of officials to speak at the ceremony, including David R.

There are five days in the life of corn when it has to have water. Irrigation is the only way a farmer can be guaranteed water.”Boothe said the irrigation bill will give farmers a $10,000 tax credit on the installation of an irrigation system.“The bill is an incentive to irrigate,” he said. “A hundred thousand additional acres of irrigated land would be equal to the location of an automobile assembly plant being located in the state. It’s that big.”Education continues to be a top priority item for the state.“We must do what is in the best interest of the students,” Boothe said. “And, that does not mean keep putting money in the same programs.”Boothe said Alabama is the sixth poorest state in the country.“Twenty-six percent of our people live below the poverty level,” he said. “We’ve got to better educate our children.”Boothe reminded the Exchange Club members that, due to reapportionment, at the end of the next legislative session Jimmy Holley will be Pike County’s new state senator.Boothe closed his presentation by encouraging the Exchange Club members to support Pike County farmers and Pike County agriculture by purchasing tickets to the Pike County Farm-City Banquet on Nov. 7. Tickets are available at the Pike County Chamber of Commerce on the square in downtown Troy.

They are getting some raw materials out of landfills in Mexico. The U.S. can’t supply all the raw materials they need.”Boothe said that the City of Troy does a good job of recycling but Alabama, overall, does not.Boothe said the Legislature passed a irrigation bill that will be of great benefit to the farmers.
