January 12, 2013 at 6:32 pm What strange recommendations for a Bishop ! Did he help lead anyone to the knowledge of our Lord, Jesus Christ? If so, whose Gospel did he preach ? Bruce Garner says: People, Nancy Mott says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Bryan Hunter says: January 12, 2013 at 3:16 pm This announcement is yet another sign that the Episcopal Church is alive and well in the low country. This is thanks to the many long-suffering, belligered, loyal Episcopalians from Georgia to North Carolina, a remarkable leadership of Churchpeople, and a great Presiding Bishop. The anti-Episcopal Church party freely chose to leave the Episcopal Church. They are now gone but of course are keeping up their war on the Episcopal Church because their union is based on fighting a common enemy. In just a couple of weeks the Episcopal diocese will meet in convention, approve the new bishop and get on with rebuilding a once great diocese. No amount of opposition the anti side can throw up in court or out will stop the Episcopal Church from thriving again in SC. This must be very unsettling to people who thought they could leave the Episcopal Church and take the Church with them. Chris Walchesky says: January 12, 2013 at 6:03 am No, I think that Lawrence has behaved with integrity. He did not lead his diocese out of TEC as far as I can see. He was trying to find a way to stay in TEC, even if barely, with the hope that eventually the situation would improve and that TEC would become a more inclusive church that allowed space for his evangelical tradition to flourish. TEC opted for fundamentalism (on the Left, to be sure) rather than a genuine inclusivity.

Caldwell that was quite a post. “Long suffering, belligered, Episcopalians in Georgia to North Carolina”? Your post conveys the sanctimonious attitude of the northern US towards the south. This isn’t the 1950’s that you and others still think the south remains. If you think the region is over run by conservative bishops, you’re obviously confused or not from the SE US or a combination thereof. Other than the Diocese of South Carolina, the EC in these areas are ruled by lap dogs of Jefforts Shori. SC will win this fight as they have case law on their side and it’s going to be interesting to watch the ECUS explain why they violated their own canon law in court. Also, the church thrives in South Carolina because of the biblical and orthodox beliefs of the leadership and will continue under the leadership of Bishop Lawrence. Next time you post a comment, I hope you will have a better understanding of the facts. Rector Tampa, FL V. Tupper Morehead, MD, MDiv, TSSF says: Rick Callaway says: Steven Long says: January 13, 2013 at 11:01 pm That is the problem with TEC…”well liked and committed to TEC” is a far cry from being committed to making disciples of Christ. Interesting how DioSC was one of the only few and I mean few growing and flourishing diocese in the country under Bp Salmon and Bp Lawrence. I guess they were making disciples while the others were dying. V. Tupper Morehead, MD, MDiv, TSSF says: January 14, 2013 at 6:16 pm Inclusive to whom ? Certainly female priests are not common in this SC diocese. Why is that the case ? Hmmmm….. Bonnie Leazer says: John Fisher says: [Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. Charles Glenn vonRosenberg, a retired bishop of East Tennessee with longtime ties to South Carolina, has been nominated as bishop provisional of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina.The Rt. Rev. Charles Glenn vonRosenberg, a retired bishop of East Tennessee with longtime ties to South Carolina, has been nominated as bishop provisional of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. Photo/Diocese of South CarolinaHis name will be presented for a vote on Jan. 26 when local clergy and laypeople who are continuing with the Episcopal Church gather with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori in a special meeting of the diocesan convention at Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston, according to a diocesan press release.The continuing Diocese of South Carolina needs a new episcopal leader because Jefferts Schori said Dec. 5 that Mark Lawrence had renounced his orders. She and her Council of Advice agreed that, in a Nov. 17 speech to a special diocesan convention, Lawrence said the diocese had left the Episcopal Church a month earlier on Oct. 17 when she restricted his ministry after the church’s Disciplinary Board for Bishops had certified to her that he had abandoned the Episcopal Church “by an open renunciation of the discipline of the church.”The day the board’s decision was announced, the diocesan Standing Committee said that the action “triggered two pre-existing corporate resolutions of the diocese, which simultaneously disaffiliated the diocese from the Episcopal Church and called a special convention.”Lawrence asked for and received affirmation from those at the Nov. 17 gathering of that departure.In addition to voting on vonRosenberg’s nomination, the convention of the continuing diocese will also choose people to fill other diocesan offices made vacant by Lawrence’s actions.If elected, vonRosenberg would be installed during the Jan. 26 meeting, and immediately take up his duties as bishop of a diocese that covers 24 counties in eastern South Carolina. Currently, at least 19 parishes and missions and six worship communities in the diocese have indicated they are remaining with the Episcopal Church, and a number of others are still deciding, the diocesan release said.A bishop provisional has all the authority and responsibilities of a diocesan bishop, but typically serves for a set period of time and is meant to be a bridge into the time when the diocese is ready to elect a diocesan bishop or make other decisions about its future.VonRosenberg and his wife, Annie, already reside in the Daniel Island community of Charleston, where he retired in 2011 after serving for 12 years as bishop of East Tennessee, the release said. Since October he has served, along with retired Bishop John Buchanan, on a voluntary basis as adviser to the steering committee that formed in October to help reorganize the diocese.VonRosenberg served parishes in the dioceses of Upper South Carolina and North Carolina, and later as canon to the ordinary in Upper South Carolina from 1989-1994.Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on July 11, 1947, he graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1969. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1974.As third bishop of East Tennessee, he oversaw an area of 34 counties in Tennessee and three in North Georgia, with 45 congregations and five worshiping communities and nearly 16,000 active members.The South Carolina release said his tenure in East Tennessee “was marked by a measured approach and a focus on reconciliation and relationship,” adding that he “worked to acknowledge diversity and build a spirit of openness in the diocese, initiating a Bishop’s Committee on Inclusivity in 2009 to encourage ‘reasonable and holy conversations’ on same-gender relationships.” He also was “noted for putting a priority on pastoral sensitivity and responsiveness, especially to clergy, their families and churches,” the release said. House of Bishops, January 10, 2013 at 8:18 pm I look forward to a renewed sense of connection with the Body of Christ that is the National Episcopal Church. It’s like emerging from the darkness into the light. I have no doubt that the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina will be in sure, safe hands under the leadership and guidance of The Right Rev.

I suppose that the best thing I can say is that the dioceses that were going to leave have left (or as in the case of SC, forced out, it appears). The whole affair has been sordid and I am ashamed for my church, especially by the the Presiding Bishop’s activities which strike me as deceitful and conniving. I will be curious to see if these 19 parishes can become a growing and flourishing diocese, as SC was the last one left in TEC-USA (and I do mean regular, year-on-year numerical growth).It will take many millions of dollars though before the whole affair is over. Best case scenario is TEC gets a bunch of empty churches. It is hard to see how that is a victory for the Gospel.

That’s telling. Only those who frequent meetings and circles of influence are hopeful enough to believe that most people in the pew give any concern to what they do among themselves. It seems that most people just want the nightmarish divisiveness gone as they focus on their own church circle. I just wish that the General Convention passes a resolution making General Convention an every 6 year event so that this Church can do some healing. And then the Executive Council needs to keep their place and not veto by passivity or obfuscation the mandates given to them. I don’t think that this Church can take any more of the progressive agenda including a revised Hymnal or Prayer Book , complete with a change in the meaning of marriage. Let’s face it: the so-called provisional use of a Service for same-gender blessings is not the stopping place. That’s the warm-up by Integrity and other well-organized entities (even outside of our Church) that want to see us become THE Church that erases “man and woman” from our marriage canons and services. Let’s not forget that the very predictably one-sided “study” given to us of same gender blessings was partially funded by efforts of secular groups with a stake at using us for their agenda. More and more is continually demanded at the expense of the unity of the Church. The message received is that the conservatives seem to matter to keep around just to give the revisionists some credibility for being inclusive…as the revisionists veto or wither by annoyance until their point prevail. As one older preacher said so eloquently: “I think some of us have been livin’ too much in the world”.

Thank you, Charles for coming out of retirement for this Church! Carol McRee says: January 11, 2013 at 3:07 pm The PB and her handful of dissidents are whistling past the graveyard with this absurd charade. TEC may be unable (or unwilling) to follow its own constitution and canons, but I suspect that it shall soon find out that South Carolina courts are not so cavalier about enforcing the state’s own corporate laws.Mr Garner, you write, “The property and assets belong to a common ownership under the flag of The Episcopal Church.” Surely you are not so delusional as to believe that TEC is a sovereign nation (and a totalitarian one at that–if it were, its “citizens” wouldn’t be leaving by the bucket-loads, as they currently are). But judging from the rest of your comment, perhaps you are. Sic transit gloria mundi. Rector Shreveport, LA Ronald J. Caldwell says: Rector Knoxville, TN Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest January 10, 2013 at 11:33 pm Unfortunately, I have seen more up close and personal than I would like the realities of the situation. This is not a theological “thing” with them. It is a power and control issue for them centering around an attitude that the church must be run by white males who are (at least allegedly) straight. I’ve witnessed their lack of respect for women clergy – and yes I know they do have some and I fear for their emotional safety. They are not actually interested in any form of reconciliation or meeting of the minds or even mutual accommodation that involves folks with whom they do not agree. Time and again they were told that they had a place at the table and it would be kept open for them. They made the decision not to sit at the table. And I am referring to more than just the empty table at Province IV Synods where a place was reserved for the Diocese of South Carolina. Attempts were made at numerous levels to reach some form of agreement but it was only acceptable to them on their own terms and not any that involved give and take or that remotely looked like reconciliation. The attitude is that “we have all the right answers and we will not budge from our position.”It is always sad when people decide to leave. But remember, people may leave any time they wish. They may not take property and assets with them, even if they are bishop or priest or chair of a standing committee. The property and assets belong to a common ownership under the flag of The Episcopal Church.If this really was an action based on theology, why would they not just walk away and start an “Anglican” church somewhere else? If it wasn’t about power and control, the property and assets would not matter. The atmosphere of tightly controlling information that goes out is just another way of exercising control. The same situation was prevelant in all of the other dioceses where the leadership decided to leave and try to take what was not theirs to take.I think many fail to recognize what is really behind the situation in South Carolina….and it was no different than the situations in Pittsburg, San Joaquin, Ft. Worth, Quincy and other places who claimed a similar position. I learned more than I ever wanted to know during my tenure on Executive Council when we had to deal with the aftermath.We can be together if we want to be together. We can sit at the same table if we want to sit at the same table. Some of us continue to save seats at the table….but our very presence keeps others from sitting down. Is there anything theological or Biblical about that? I can’t find it. The closest I can see in a comparable situation was when people of color sat at tables and lunch room counters and white folks got up and left. Funny how both happened in similar places.The reality is that the Diocese of South Carolina violated the Canons and Constitution they had vowed to uphold when they removed references to the Episcopal Church from their own canons and constitution. Mark Lawrence abandoned the communion and effectively renounced his vows as a bishop in TEC by his own words and statements. No one forced those words from his mouth or from his pen (computer). It was his choice and he made it. Now he has to live with the consequences. I wish those who followed him well. They are all still my brothers and sisters in Christ. They are welcome in my home AND in my parish….even though the reciprocal is not true. Featured Events Submit a Press Release Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate Diocese of Nebraska January 10, 2013 at 5:04 pm It is so sad that this all came about. I’m currently on my 3d tour on Standing Committee of our Diocese in Central PA. (I’ll be 80 by the time my tour is up!) We had our doubts about Mark Lawrence when he was first put forth to be Bishop of SC. However, his comments and remarks were overly nuanced and we were aware of anecdotal information for some time that the Standing Committee of SC was searching for someone to lead them out of ECUSA. The second go-round the followng year resulted in a split vote (consents among us just made the majority required) and was based on assurances to our Bishop by then Fr. Lawrence that it was not his intent to lead the diocese out of ECUSA. I see no grace in all of this rancor precipitated by Diocese of SC except that we must be assured that the Holy Spirit is leading us in these matters (even though it might appear He/She may be perceived to speak differently to different parties). It just seems to run against the Anglican ethos of one big umbrella embracing the spectrum of conservatives to progressives alike; we all come to the Table as one. It should be noted that Christianity over the centuries indeed has a progressive bent and we are not all “Luddites”, if you will. Godspeed to continuing Diocese of SC. January 10, 2013 at 7:16 pm I wish him well as they unsnarl that mess. Rector Washington, DC January 13, 2013 at 2:49 pm What is so strange about his recommendation as Bishop ? He appears to be well liked and committed to the Episcopal Church (TEC). That is what we expect of our Bishops. January 10, 2013 at 6:04 pm So the non diocese has been given a name for a provisional bishop in violation of TEC’s own cannons…… I would expect nothing else from this group that ignores any and all rules. Remember this is largely the same group who brought Lawrence not once…. not twice…… but three times up on disciplinary charges. Fortunately THE Diocese of South Carolina is doing just fine. We all wish them well ….. just please get your own identity and stop using someone else’s! January 10, 2013 at 6:13 pm Cannons? Or is that a pun (shades of Ft Sumter!) ? John Neir says: Rector Martinsville, VA John Neir says: Bryan Hunter says: Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ February 2, 2013 at 10:59 pm I’m quite confident that Bishop vonRosenberg will do for the Episcopal Church in South Carolina just what he did for the Diocese of East Tennessee — ASA in 2001 of around 6500 [undoubtedly more in 1999 when the bishop was consecrated], and ASA in 2011 when he departed of around 5500.Not a bad decline, for TEC dioceses led by revisionists.It’s a good, solid choice and very fitting for the new organization in SC.

Doug Desper says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Albany, NY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books January 22, 2013 at 5:12 pm This was all brought about by the PB, who has spent millions litigating ($23mm) and forcing conservative Episcopalians out of the church. She’s an angry person with no regard for the rule of law and hell bent on getting her way. She’s over played her hand in SC and has met her match as the South Carolinians will send her back to NYC only she payes compensatory and exemplary damages, which are surely to result from their splendid strategy. The Denis Cannon will not be upheld in SC courts (it wasn’t when both the Diocese of SC and ECUS were plaintiffs in the All Saints Pawleys Island case) and it looks like it’s in danger in Texas and perhaps in Virginia (the Commonwealth appellate court has agreed to review the Fairfax case). Also, litigation enforcing corporate church ownership was recently dimissed out of an Oregon court. At any outcome, the ECUS will continue a slow and sad death as they spend millions of dollars to enforce their ‘our way or the highway’ doctrine. So much for the diversity they expouse.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Chaska, Minnesota] Hay energía, vida y vitalidad en la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo el obispo primado Michael B. Curry al Consejo Ejecutivo al tiempo que se iniciaba la reunión que tiene lugar aquí del 8 al 10 de junio.“Creo en verdad que vamos por la senda correcta”, dijo Curry en sus palabras de apertura.Él le dijo al Consejo que su insistente llamado a que la Iglesia Episcopal encarne el Movimiento de Jesús no es “una invención del siglo XXI o una pócima retórica de Michael Curry”. El Obispo Primado explicó que, por el contrario, los eruditos del Nuevo Testamento se refieren a los comienzos del cristianismo como el Movimiento de Jesús.“Cuando usamos la frase Movimiento de Jesús estamos en realidad refiriéndonos a los primeros tiempos de las enseñanzas de Jesús y de sus seguidores, los que siguieron su camino y sus huellas en el poder del Espíritu. De eso es de lo que realmente estamos hablando”, señaló. “Y en verdad estamos hablando de reclamar la herencia de los hechos de los apóstoles; la herencia del movimiento de la gente que estaba profundamente convencida por Jesús de Nazaret de que este tipo en verdad sí tenía algo que decir y que sí ayudaba a las personas a acercarse a Dios y las unas a las otras —que esto era lo que a Jesús de Nazaret realmente le importaba”.Los votos del pacto bautismal de seguir a Jesús no son “un floreo retórico”, sino más bien un testimonio cristiano y un testimonio cristiano que es particularmente necesario en nuestro tiempo”, afirmó Curry.En la actual temporada política y en la cultura como un todo hay “alguna polarización real; una atmósfera donde el prejuicio —prejuicio rancio— con frecuencia se ve consagrado en leyes. Estas son de nuevo actitudes discriminatorias, consagradas en leyes, y en las que el prejuicio rancio puede expresarse en la esfera pública como si fuera un discurso legítimo”, afirmó. “Eso es un problema . No estoy haciendo una declaración republicana o demócrata. Esto no tiene nada que ver con el partidismo; tiene que ver con la ciudadanía”.Curry advirtió que el cristianismo se ve con mucha frecuencia como un cómplice de la cultura. “De manera que un testigo de un modo cristiano de ser —es decir donde la evangelización sí importa para esta Iglesia y donde la reconciliación racial sí importa para esta Iglesia— un testimonio de una Iglesia, como la Iglesia Episcopal, de un modo de ser cristiano que no sea cómplice de la cultura, sino cómplice en seguir a Jesús y parecerse a Jesús de Nazaret: amando y cuidando y sirviendo de la manera que vemos que Jesús lo hace en el Nuevo Testamento. Eso es oponerle una narrativa a una narrativa de estrechez, de segregación y de polarización”.“Creo que esta Iglesia y el pueblo de esta Iglesia pueden dar ese testimonio: los episcopales que son republicanos y los episcopales que son demócratas, la vía media, el centro sensible, eso que somos nosotros”, señaló. “El Movimiento de Jesús encarnado en la Iglesia Episcopal y en los episcopales tiene una profunda significación cultural y bien puede llegar a tener también una significación global”.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y vicepresidente del Consejo, aprovechó sus palabras de apertura para llamar al Consejo y a la Iglesia a considerar la igualdad de los sexos en la Iglesia Episcopal al acercarse el 40º. aniversario, el 16 de septiembre, de que la Convención General aprobara la ordenación de mujeres como sacerdotes y obispos.Jennings dijo que el compromiso con la igualdad de género en la Iglesia debe centrarse claramente “en la Iglesia tal como es hoy, no en la Iglesia como era el 16 de septiembre de 2016.“En particular, con demasiada frecuencia oímos medir la igualdad de género en la Iglesia por contar cuántas mujeres educadas y privilegiadas se encuentran en una posición de autoridad jerárquica”, dijo ella. Valiéndonos de esa medida “podríamos tranquilizarnos al creer que la Iglesia será transformada fundamentalmente por mujeres que han tenido éxito en sistemas construidos y formados por la autoridad patriarcal”, expresó.En lugar de eso, la Iglesia debe cambiar, “los sistemas que han promovido la desigualdad durante tanto tiempo y que continúan reforzándola para la gran mayoría de nuestras hermanas, laicas y ordenadas”, dijo Jennings.Además, toda la Iglesia debe “luchar a favor de todas las mujeres en nuestras iglesias y comunidades —mujeres que luchan para encontrar y permitirse un cuidado infantil de calidad, mujeres que están atrapadas en relaciones violentas o que están esclavizadas por la adicción, mujeres que trabajan muchas horas en condiciones de pobreza con bajos salarios para sostener a sus hijos, mujeres que no tienen acceso a una atención sanitaria y control de la natalidad adecuados, mujeres que carecen de documentación y viven temiendo la deportación”.Y dadas las “condiciones de riesgo mortal” en que viven las mujeres transexuales, dijo Jennings, “debemos cerciorarnos de que nuestra búsqueda de la igualdad de la mujer no define la identidad sexual de modo que las excluya o silencie sus voces”También durante la plenaria:* El tesorero Kurt Barnes reiteró una advertencia que le había hecho al Consejo en su última reunión de febrero acerca de extraer demasiado dinero de las inversiones de la Iglesia. Algunos presupuestos recientes se han basado en parte en tomar más del ingreso de las inversiones de la Iglesia de lo que ha sido su 5 por ciento de interés anual. El presupuesto 2016-2018 se basa en parte en una extracción efectiva de un 5,75 de interés anual por concepto de inversiones. La Iglesia tiene casi $356 millones en inversiones, contando alrededor de $110 millones invertidos a favor de otras entidades de la Iglesia Episcopal y unos $180 millones en activos a largo plazo disponibles para sostener el presupuesto, según el informe de Barnes. Si bien las inversiones de la Iglesia han conseguido mejores resultados que otros fondos de inversiones e indexados, Barnes explicó que existe un “pero”. La extracción de altos dividendos “está erosionando el futuro poder adquisitivo de los fideicomisos”, afirmó. Los modelos de inversión muestran que por ese camino la cartera [de valores] es probable que gane un 7,4 por ciento, un medio por ciento menos de lo que tradicionalmente se espera. Sin embargo, la cartera tendría que ganar un 8,4 por ciento anualmente para sostener el capital, una tasa que exigiría inversiones más riesgosas. “La aritmética hace más difícil para nosotros producir un rédito que mantenga íntegra la cartera”, dijo Barnes. El propio comité de inversiones del Consejo, que es un organismo asesor, aprobó una resolución el 20 de mayo en que recomendaba reducir la extracción de ingresos de la inversión anual en el presupuesto 2019-2021 a un 4,5 por ciento para 2021, sin excepciones para solicitudes especiales.* El Consejo escuchó a Tara Holley, directora de desarrollo, decir que hay mucho trabajo por hacer para lograr que su departamento esté a la altura de los estándares que le permitirán a su personal recaudar dinero exitosamente para proyectos importantes. Ella le dijo a los miembros del Consejo que el departamento carece de un plan estratégico; que hay plazas vacantes, que un banco de datos de donantes se encuentra incompleto y que no tiene un administrador; el cultivo de los actuales donantes es mínimo y no existen materiales de presentación para proyectos planeados. Entre estos proyectos algunos en Haití que sobrepasan los $22 millones, varios en la misión de la zona de Navajolandia y un nuevo edificio para los Archivos de la Iglesia Episcopal, además de un número de programas y proyectos relacionados con la reconciliación y el Movimiento de Jesús.Holley también le dijo a los miembros del Consejo que Curry había pulsado “el botón de receso” en la recaudación de fondos de Haití “durante unas cuantas semanas” a fin de poder garantizarles a los donantes el nivel de responsabilidad que ellos esperan.“Buscamos responsabilidad, transparencia, liderazgo, información razonada, información precisa y tareas a realizar… eso hará que las cosas en Haití marchen con mayor fluidez”, dijo Holley. Curry añadió que él había pedido el receso luego de escuchar a todas las partes involucradas en ayudar a la reconstrucción de Haití luego del terremoto de 2010. Si bien resulta claro que el trabajo es una prioridad, dijo el Obispo Primado, el trabajo debe hacerse “de tal manera que podamos engendrar suficiente confianza de manera que una campaña [de recaudación de fondos] pueda lograr realmente que se realice el trabajo”.* Los miembros entraron en sesión ejecutiva para “recibir informes confidenciales sobre asuntos del personal”, según la moción de Jennings para pedir la sesión. Antes de que ella presentara la moción, Curry le dijo al Consejo que la sesión [ejecutiva] era necesaria no para discutir una nueva “gran crisis”, sino, más bien, para poner al día al Consejo “de la labor y el progreso que hemos estado haciendo juntos —cosas buenas y positivas—“, y “pensamos que era más adecuado hacer eso en sesión ejecutiva”.Esta reunión del Consejo es la primera desde la salida de tres importantes ejecutivos que han estado con licencia administrativa desde el 9 de diciembre de 2015, pendientes de una investigación de denuncias y alegaciones formales de numerosos miembros del personal del Obispo Primado de que los tres habían violado las normas del personal.El 4 de abril, Sam McDonald, subdirector de operaciones y director de misión, y Alex Baumgarten, director de participación pública y comunicaciones de la misión, fueron rescindidos [de sus cargos] después que una investigación revelara que “habían violado políticas de trabajo establecidas y que no habían estado a la altura de las normas de conducta personal de la Iglesia en sus relaciones con empleados, lo cual había contribuido a [crear] un ambiente laboral con frecuencia incompatible con los valores y expectativas de la Iglesia Episcopal”.Curry anunció también, que el obispo Stacy Sauls no continuaría como director de operaciones aunque él había “funcionado dentro del ámbito de su oficina”, no había violado las normas laborales y no estaba al tanto de las violaciones cometidas por McDonald and Baumgarten (los cuales le rendían cuentas a él).El Consejo se dividió en sus cinco comités durante la tarde dl 8 de junio. Los miembros del Consejo se reunieron de nuevo en sesión plenaria en la mañana del 9 de junio antes de agruparse otra vez en comités. El 10 de junio cada uno de esos comités informará al organismo en pleno, a cuya consideraciones presentará resoluciones.La reunión está teniendo lugar en el Hotel y Centro de Conferencias Oak Ridge en Chaska, un suburbio al sur de Minneapolis y San Pablo.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). 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, más el Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio]. Además, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Secretario, el Director de Operaciones, el Tesorero y el Director de Finanzas tienen asiento y voz, pero no voto.– La Rda.

It’s leaning hard on obvious Catholic symbolism, working overtime to remind you that it’s a dark and gritty show, and, well, we get it. But there are, in fact, a couple reasons to be excited about this new season, the biggest of which is the return of Wilson Fisk as The Kingpin, and the hopes that they might find a way to adapt Born Again, the most famous and beloved of Daredevil stories. Will they pull it off? Who knows, but I really want to find out.

Based on the comic by Riverdale showrunners Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack, Sabrina’s big twist is that it takes all the occult stuff the old comic and series played for laughs and treats them very, very seriously for some damn good horror. If you love Riverdale, you need to check this out. Available October 26.Apostle Gareth Evans is the director of two of the finest action films in recent memory, The Raid and The Raid 2. Apostle, his next film, looks nothing like either of them, and it couldn’t be more exciting. Apostle stars Dan Stevens as a man who visits a remote village to save his sister from the thrall of a cult — only to find himself in too deep. It’s a familiar setup but channeled through Evans’s brutal-yet-artful sensibilities, Apostle looks like a can’t-miss horror film.

“COPY” Written by Barbara PoradaMarch 24, 2013 Share “COPY” Videos A Glimpse of Hope for Johannesburg’s Forgotten Ponte TowerSave this articleSaveA Glimpse of Hope for Johannesburg’s Forgotten Ponte Tower ArchDaily CopyThe Ponte Tower is a residential high-rise in Johannesburg, South Africa with a unique history and now a promising future. It was designed by architect Manfred Hermer in the 1970’s to be one of the most desirable places to live in the city, with an iconic, hollowed out interior, three-story apartments and rooftop jacuzzis. Over time, however, the building fell into disrepair and instead of serving as an icon of extreme wealth and prosperity, it became an icon of poverty and indifference. In still racially-divided South Africa, this was marked by the moving out of whites and the moving in of a primarily black population as property values plummeted. It has been associated with high levels of crime, a lack of sanitariness and even suicides, thanks to the building’s hollow core.Recently, however, the derelict Ponte Tower has received more attention from investors and the architect himself, who doesn’t necessarily want to restore the building to its former glory but wishes to at least make it a decent place to live. The introduction of stringent security has encouraged more open-minded, middle-class citizens to move in, hoping for a profitable return as the Ponte Tower continues to grow in terms of value. Watch this featured video for more on the building’s comeback and what it will mean for its current and future residents. ‘Wallcano’: Collider Activity Center Competition Entry / Zohar ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectGold Coast International Design CompetitionEvent Share CopyAbout this authorBarbara PoradaAuthorFollow#TagsNewsArchitecture NewsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsSkyscrapersPonte TowerJohannesburgSouth AfricaManfred HermerVideosCite: Barbara Porada. “A Glimpse of Hope for Johannesburg’s Forgotten Ponte Tower” 24 Mar 2013.

Protesters demand hep C medical treatment for Pennsylvania prisoners, Jan. 13.For the second time in five weeks, protesters gathered outside the Philadelphia office of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf on Jan.13. They again demanded that the state’s Department of Corrections provide political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and thousands of others under their jurisdiction with life-saving medications that can cure their chronic hepatitis C.Last Dec. 9 demonstrators delivered tens of thousands of petitions to Wolf. These called on him and DOC Superintendent John Wetzel to provide prisoners with the anti-viral drugs Sovaldi or Harvoni. These drugs have proven 95 percent effective in curing hep C.In 2015 the DOC established protocols designed to deny and delay even consideration of treatment for hep C until a prisoner was near death and no longer treatable. While the state delayed treatment, prisoners were already dying.Federal District Judge Robert Mariani ordered on Jan. 3 the DOC to treat Abu-Jamal with the hep C cure within 21 days. In his precedent-setting ruling, Mariani called the DOC’s persistent refusal to treat prisoners with hep C “barbaric and unconstitutional.” The ruling for Abu-Jamal would have extended to the 6,000 other Pennsylvania prisoners with the disease.The DOC filed a notice of intent on Jan. 12 to appeal Mariani’s decision, asked for the court to “reconsider” its ruling and filed a motion for stay of the order. The emergency demonstration on Jan. 13 was the movement’s response.The DOC’s appeal could extend Abu-Jamal’s suffering and dangerous deterioration of health. The Centers for Disease Control and Preventiion says every person with chronic hepatitis C should be given the cure immediately.Outside Wolf’s office Pam Africa of the MOVE organization and International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, said, “The DOC’s appeal is outrageous. It exposes the state’s wanton disregard for the health and life of the men and women under its care. It violates human decency.”The DOC is arguing that medication for prisoners with the deadly hep C costs too much, and the cost should be the basis for rejecting provision of the cure. At the rally, Dr. Suzanne Ross said publicly that Judge Mariani made it absolutely clear that the cost of the medicine cannot take precedence over the constitutional right of every prisoner with hep C to get the cure.The 12-week treatment provided through Gilead Sciences costs as much $90,000 for one individual, Dr. Ross said, but that’s because of Gilead’s greed. Actual production of the entire treatment costs the company only $62. Even that includes a 50 percent write-up for profits.Earlier on Jan. 13, a delegation of activists from New York and Philadelphia, including Ross, Pam Africa, Johanna Fernandez and others traveled to the DOC’s headquarters in Mechanicsburg, Pa., in an effort to meet with Wetzel. After some apparent changes, the DOC finally sent Security to ask the delegation to leave. Security said the state office was “private property” and they were trespassing.One of Gov. Tom Wolf’s first acts when he took office in January 2015 was to place a moratorium on the death penalty in Pennsylvania. Yet to refuse to treat a curable disease and let prisoners die due to medical neglect is really a death sentence by another means. It’s not just unconstitutional.Mumia’s supporters urge people to continue making calls to Wetzel (717-728-2573 or 717-728-4109), telling him to immediately give the hep C cure to Mumia and all other state prisoners with the disease.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Tasting Event Reaching Consumers and Students Farm Bureau Tasting Event Reaching Consumers and Students Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Aug 16, 2018 Facebook Twitter Farm-Bureau-tasteThousands of Hoosiers have visited the Indiana State Fair, which draws to a close this weekend. Thousands, 4,971 exactly, also went through the Indiana Farm Bureau building for the three days of the Taste from Indiana Farms. They sampled food items from 12 products grown in Indiana, so there was tasting, but there was also talking. Second vice president Isabella Chism said it’s a great chance to dispel some myths about food production.“One of the places that I heard that the most was with the eggs and poultry,” she explained. “This year they’re serving eggs and they’re talking about different things related to eggs, like brown shelled eggs and white shelled eggs. The only difference is the chicken that it came from. Then someone asked the question are these GMO eggs. Well, the answer is no, there are no GMO eggs. So, we begin to debunk some of these myths out there, some of the things people are believing because they see it on the internet or they hear it from a friend or a neighbor.”She told HAT when it comes to potential audience, it doesn’t get any better than the numbers generated by the state fair.“This is the largest one on one consumer event that we have right now, so I don’t see it ending anytime soon. It’s been a marvelous effect on the people who have come through.”It plays right into the mission of Indiana Farm Bureau, educating the public about where their food comes from and supporting agriculture. But Chism says it “also feeds us, because those of us in agriculture don’t understand that people don’t understand what we do until they ask a question.”On Wednesday Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and Indiana State Department of Agriculture welcomed students in agricultural programs at urban schools on Diversity in Agriculture Day. They did the taste tour and Chism said it was an amazing experience that should be an annual event.“You’ve taken students out of a classroom. They have no experience with agriculture. All of them answered they had never stepped foot on a farm. We took them through and they were just kind of looking at things. Some things they’re familiar with and they’ll taste them, some things not so much and they’ll hesitate, but they asked questions. They paid attention, and then we have a prize wheel at the end where we check to see what people are retaining, and they retained the information very well. So, I was very impressed with them and want to do this again every year.”The fare at the tasting event included lamb brats, goat cheese, and yogurt.

Nationally Irish Water has adopted a prioritised programme of works which will require an investment of €2 billion by 2021.Irish Water is working in partnership with local authorities to address the issues affecting the water supplies which remain on the RAL and to bring them to a standard where the EPA determines that they can be removed.”by Kathy [email protected] WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsEnvironmentAbbeyfeale water supply gets the all clearBy Staff Reporter – February 12, 2020 721 Limerick customers to benefit from extension of Irish Water’s First Fix free scheme to tackle leaks Linkedin Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Print Irish Water to replace old water mains on St Nessan’s Road Limerick on Covid watch list Facebook Limerick centre needed to tackle environmental issues Update: Works underway to resolve discolouration of water in Raheen area Email Advertisement Twitter
