October 3, 2016 at 8:45 pm WHAT “destruction of traditional values by the Episcopal Church”? All they say is that we have an obligation to vote. What about that is against our traditional values? They also said that, whatever the outcome of the election, we should behave like Christians. Did you plan to do something other than that? Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Director of Music Morristown, NJ October 5, 2016 at 7:32 pm In other words, vote for Hillary. The Episcopal Church welcomes you…only if you’re a wealthy, elitist liberal. Rector Albany, NY October 3, 2016 at 7:09 pm I grew up in a time and place where “Jim Crow” was the tradition and considered a good custom. At the same time females couldn’t serve as acolytes, couldn’t serve on the vestry, and couldn’t be ordained as priests. My great, great, grandfather who was a Presbyterian minister, went along with the tradition of slavery. The tradition in the very early church was that a Gentile would have to become a Jew before he could become a Christian. Of course this list of rejected traditions and customs could go on, but you get the point. As Tennyson put it, “The old order changeth, yielding place to new, lest one good custom should corrupt the world.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Comments (10) Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

I have a legal right to vote and participate in government and that implies a legal right not to. I don’t think it is any of the PB’s business how I decide. A very strong case can be made that a Christian should avoid political involvement.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. When we say things that hurt others, we may be speaking freely, but we are not speaking as Christ would have us speak. When we pray for others who disagree with us, we are obeying Jesus’s command to love our enemies, and we may even finding our hearts moved towards compassion for them.

I have heard this many times before. It all goes back to our inclusiveness. We are supposed to practice the teachings of Jesus. We are taught to look at each person as a Child Of God. Just because we don’t dwell on sin, Hell, and damnation, it doesn’t mean we don’t have traditional values. Jesus teaches love, acceptance, and peace, and is what the Episcopal Church focuses.I challenge you to attend an Episcopal worship service. See for yourself, and have some conversations with our clergy. You will find that your statement is untrue.

Indeed, we who follow in the way of Jesus of Nazareth are summoned to participate actively as reflections of our faith in the civil process.”The video is closed-captioned and is subtitled in Spanish. The text of the presiding bishop’s message in English and Spanish can be found here at the end of the story.Election Engagement ToolkitThe Episcopal Public Policy Network’s Election Engagement Toolkit is an introduction for congregations that are eager to participate in the electoral process “faithfully, responsibly and legally.” The toolkit anchors such engagement in the Baptismal Covenant’s promise to “strive for justice and peace and respect the dignity of every human being.”It suggests that particularly appropriate activities are conversations on public policy issues, candidate forums, voter registration and issue education campaigns, engagement with young adults who are eligible to vote for the first time, Get Out The Vote campaigns and advocacy for voting rights legislation.The network’s #EpiscopaliansVote page includes a calendar of election-related dates, an election-related litany and other prayers, an interactive U.S. map with information about elections in each state, sample tweets about voting and other resources.EPPN also invites church members to sign the Episcopal Voter Pledge, noting that the Episcopal Church considers voting an act of Christian stewardship.A Season of Prayer for an ElectionFor the 30 days leading up to the election, Forward Movement is calling Episcopalians and all others to join in a time of prayer.“This election season has been among the most contentious in recent memory,” the Rev. Scott Gunn, Forward Movement executive director, said in a letter announcing the Oct. 9-Nov. 9 prayer cycle. “I’ve heard people say, again and again, ‘I’m not sure what to do.’ For Christians, there is always one thing we can do, every one of us. We can pray.”The Season of Prayer includes weekly PDFs with prayers for each day. The entire cycle can is available for download in a single PDF. Except for the final prayer, all prayers come from The Book of Common Prayer. The final prayer for Nov. 9, titled “Pray to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ today, no matter the election results,” is printed in each issue of Forward Day by Day under the title “For Today.”The downloads, one in English and another in Spanish, are here.Forward Movement will also post each daily prayer to its Facebook and Twitter feeds, and in Spanish on Adelante día a día.Faith, Politics and the Golden RuleLos Angeles Times writer Mark Oppenheimer, other panelists and participants in the annual Lansing Lee Conference Oct. 16-18 at Kanuga Camp and Conference Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina, will explore the idea of transformational leadership and the question: “How can the country go from a place of partisanship to engagement?” Joining Oppenheimer will be human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar and assistant editor at The Washington Post Elizabeth Bruenig. Further details are here.Bridging the Political DivideChurchNext offers online course Bridging the Political Divide with Parker Palmer for a $10 fee. It comes in two formats: individuals and groups.The course description says “many observers note that the political rancor and rhetoric has reached all-time highs, injecting unprecedented fear, division, and unease into our culture.” Palmer, the description says, “believes our current political climate provides a rare opportunity to think more deeply about who we are as people and a nation.” The course asks how people of faith ought to respond and how they can “remain calm and centered amidst our difference and tension, taking our roles as peacemakers and even prophets, seriously.”Palmer offers four video presentations, including downloadable discussion questions for groups and “The Takeaway” for personal study.A call to ‘intense prayer’The three Episcopal bishops who serve in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a joint statement Oct. 5 in which they call for all Episcopalians to join a 48-hour prayer vigil prior to Election Day.

Recently, scientists cited climate change as a factor in the unprecedented intensity of bushfires in Australia in 2019-20.In the face of this crisis, Archbishop Linda Nicholls, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has called on the church to take action on climate change, calling stewardship of the Earth and the care of creation “a core responsibility of our faith.” The primate compares concern of young people for the future of their planet with the fear of nuclear annihilation she experienced growing up during the Cold War.Read the entire article here.

The awards are designed to reward charities which promote and use Direct Debit to increase the number of regular, automated donations they receive each year.This year, the Direct Debit Charity Award scheme has three categories for charities to enter. The first award is for achievement and will be presented to the charity that can demonstrate the largest year-on-year increase in Direct Debit take up. The second award is for innovation. Organisations will be judged on the most creative promotion of Direct Debit. Advertisement Howard Lake | 12 June 2006 | News The final category looks at best practice and will be awarded to the charity that shows the most significant improvements in customer satisfaction as a direct result of offering Direct Debit as an alternative payment method.Recent research from BACS showed that 52% of all UK charitable donations were made using Direct Debit. It also confirmed that charities “were missing out on up to £400 million a year because Gift Aid was not being used to its full advantage and because almost a third of donors (32%) did not know what Gift Aid was.” Commenting Michael Chambers, managing director of BACS said: “Identifying new ways to increase the volume, frequency and value of donations is key, as is maximising donor retention. BACS findings clearly show that more can be done to boost the nation’s financial investment in worthwhile causes and ensure Gift Aid is used to full effect.”The winners will be announced at the Third Sector Forum on 8 November 2006 at the Oxford Belfry, Oxford. Each participating charity will also be entered into the Direct Debit Charity Awards Prize Draw giving them the chance to win a £1000 donation.The closing date for all entries is 31 August 2006.

He is both the editor of the main oppositiondaily Yeni Musavat and vice-president of the opposition party Musavat. June 4, 2021 Find out more Rauf Arifoglu, the imprisoned editor of the main opposition dailyYeni Musavat, has called off his hunger strike after 10 days. Deputy editorGabil Abbasoglu said prison guards summoned doctors yesterday eveningbecause they feared his condition had become critical. Arifoglu is alsovice-president of the opposition party Musavat. News Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its appeal to the Azerbaijani authorities to release opposition newspaper editor Rauf Arifoglu provisionally while he awaits trial. Arifoglu has been on hunger strike for the past week and is refusing to call off the protest, his lawyer, Samed Panahov, said.Panahov said Arifoglu’s condition is deteriorating. He has violent stomach pains and has experienced sharp falls in his blood pressure. He is being examined regularly by both prison medical staff and Red Cross doctors.Arifoglu, who is both the editor of the main opposition daily Yeni Musavat and vice-president of the opposition party Musavat, has been detained for more than three months pending trial on charges of organising the riots that followed the disputed presidential elections in October. If convicted, he could be imprisoned for seven years.The authorities originally ordered on 27 October that he should be held in Bailov prison in Baku for a period of three months. On 17 January, the prosecutor’s office extended this by another three months pending trial, for which no date has yet been set.The authorities claim that he organised the demonstrations of 15 and 16 October, and accuse him of “disturbing the peace” and “refusing to comply” with official decisions. In particular, they allege that objects used by Musavat protesters were stored in his office in the newspaper, which is in the same building as the party.Deputy state prosecutor Ramiz Rzayev maintains that he must remain in custody because of the gravity of the charges and the possibility that he could become a fugitive from justice.When Reporters Without Borders met with the authorities during a fact-finding visit to Azerbaijan in December, they maintained that Arifoglu was not being detained as a journalist but as a leader of the Musavat party.
HaïtiAmericas December 3, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two years of impunity since Brignol Lindor’s brutal murder on 3 December 2001 News Receive email alerts RSF_en October 11, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the entrenched impunity in the case of Haitian journalist Brignol Lindor of provincial radio station Echo 2000, who was stoned and hacked to death by ruling party supporters in the town where he worked, Petit-Goâve, two years ago today.”The murderers of journalists lay down the law in Haiti,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “Lindor’s family had to leave the country because of threats in April 2001. The family of Géraud Louis, the victim’s cousin, has since had to go into exile too, as has Arbrun Alezi, Echo 2000’s director, because of threats said to have come from government supporters,” Ménard added.Reporters Without Borders said no judicial progress had been made in the case since the investigating judge issued his conclusions in September 2002. “On the contrary, this year’s decision by the Haitian courts not to recognise the Lindor family as a civil party in the case has contributed to the impunity, as it deprives the family of its legitimate right to appeal against the investigating judge’s controversial conclusions,” the organisation said.In Paris, where it has obtained political asylum, the Lindor family said: “We are still suffering but we will not give up until light is shed on this hateful crime.” The family welcomed the sanctions adopted by France and other European governments against the Haitian authorities, urging them to go further by refusing visas to President Aristide and other members of his government.France’s parliamentarians decided to express their solidarity with the Lindor family on the second anniversary of the journalist’s death. The family will be received today in the senate by Sen. Michel Dreyfus-Schmidt, the president of the France-Caribbean Friendship Group. Deputy Edouard Landrain, president of the France-Haiti Friendship Group, has also undertaken to meet Reporters Without Borders and Moréno Lindor, the victim’s younger brother, in the national assembly to discuss press freedom in Haiti.Simone Louis, the wife of Brignol Lindor’s cousin, left Haiti on 31 August of this year with her children Samora, Rachelle, Dodell and Uriel for France, where they have been given political asylum. Her husband Géraud went to the scene of the murder shortly after it took place to recover Lindor’s body. Thereafter, the family was the target of repeated threats and acts of intimidation : an attempt to set their house on fire, shots fired at the house, Aristide posters stuck to the walls, and armed threats. Among the perpetrators of these threats, the family identified “Ti Harry,” “Ti Yayan,” “Baboute,” “Haugou” and “Valmy Colbert,” but no action was taken against them. Former Echo 2000 director Arbrun Alezi also went into exile in August after receiving many threats.The family’s lawyer, Jean-Joseph Exumé, has appealed against this ruling to the court of cassation on the grounds that, in Haitian law, civil parties do not have to be formally constituted in cases when an investigation is opened at the public prosecutor’s initiative. “The appeal to the court of cassation has still not been heard,” Exumé complained. He also said he had no information as to whether any of the accused were in prison.In his conclusions, issued on 16 September 2002, the investigating judge charged 10 persons with participating in the murder but did not charge former Petit-Goâve deputy mayor Dumay Bony, who called for “zero tolerance” to be applied to the “terrorist” Brignol Lindor two days after Lindor invited opposition representatives to take part in his radio programme “Dialogue”. Lindor was killed three days later. The term “zero tolerance” is widely viewed in Haiti as an implicit legitimization of lynching. After President Aristide called on the police to use “zero tolerance” in their handling of criminals, there was an increase in summary executions.Those who stoned and hacked Lindor to death with machetes on 3 December 2001 were members of Dòmi Nan Bwa, a local group of grass-roots supporters of the ruling Fanmi Lavalas party. They claimed responsibility for the killing shortly afterwards in the presence of Guyler Delva, the head of the Association of Haitian Journalists (AJH).

Previous Article Next Article Push to widen review of leaveOn 1 Apr 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Family-friendly policy campaigners are pressing the Government to widen itscurrent review of parental and maternity leave. The campaign, led by Parents At Work and supported by Cherie Booth QC andHarriet Harman MP, welcomed the announcement that Trade and Industry SecretaryStephen Byers is to consult on improving the statutory provisions introducedlast December to help working parents. But it also wants to see laws to entitle those on maternity leave to returnto work part-time as a way of encouraging greater numbers back in to the jobmarket. This would require a change to the legislation under the Part Time Workdirective, said spokeswoman for Parents At Work Sue Monk. “We are usingthe Sex Discrimination Act to push for greater rights but it is incrediblyweak.,” she said. The Government’s inquiry is thought to be considering proposals to introducestatutory pay for workers taking parental leave and extend paid maternityleave. Last month the Prime Minister’s wife Cherie Booth called for changes in thelaw to banish the culture of discrimination that made it so difficult for womento struggle with the balance of work and family life. “The legal systemhas not developed quickly enough to deal effectively with this type ofdiscrimination,” she said. A survey by the Equal Opportunities Commission has revealed that employersare generally not helping women find more flexible working arrangements such aspart-time hours or job-sharing. It found that in more than half of cases,requests for changes in working arrangements were rejected or the arrangementsoffered were unacceptable, said chairwoman Julie Mellor. But most disturbing was the fact that one in five of those refused changeswere either dismissed, made redundant or forced to resign. More than a third ofthose refused lodged a complaint with the employment tribunal. Related posts:No related photos.
Allee effects play an important role in the dynamics of many populations and can increase the risk of local extinction. However, some authors have questioned the weight of evidence for Allee effects in wild populations. We therefore exploited a natural experiment provided by two adjacent breeding colonies of contrasting density to investigate the potential for Allee effects in an Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) population that is declining in response to climate change-induced reductions in food availability. Biometric time-series data were collected from 25 pups per colony during two consecutive breeding seasons, the first of which was among the worst on record in terms of breeding female numbers, pup birth weights and foraging trip durations. In previous decades when population densities were higher, pup mortality was consistently negatively density dependent, with rates of trauma and starvation scaling positively with density. However, we found the opposite, with higher pup mortality at low density and the majority of deaths attributable to predation. In parallel, body condition was depressed at low density, particularly in the poor-quality season. Our findings shed light on Allee effects in wild populations and highlight a potential emerging role of predators in the ongoing decline of a pinniped species.
