Presiding Bishop begins a Holy Week pilgrimage in the Holy…

first_img March 27, 2018 at 1:09 pm Greetings from Jerusalem where I am covering the presiding bishop’s pilgrimage. These comments are based on a false assumption. We are not traveling with hired, armed security. Ainslie Kincross says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Kenneth Knapp says: March 27, 2018 at 11:44 am Donna, It would be naive to belive a leader of the Christian church would go unprotected in that area of the world especially since he will be traveling to different locations. The Pope travels with armed security and behind bullet proof glass when he is in public and has a small army to protect him while in the Vatican. I would be amazed if the Presiding Bishop does not have a security detail. But my point is all these leaders/celebs/politicians support more gun control that will affect law abiding citizens who want to defend themselves from evil while they themselves are protected by people armed with guns. To me that’s hypocritical. Bill Louis says: Rector Knoxville, TN Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY March 26, 2018 at 2:05 pm As an Episcopalian who did human rights monitoring, hazardous accompaniment and violence reduction work in Hebron, and acknowledging that this is a short pilgrimage, my prayer is that Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry will have opportunities to visit/see/experience more than the institutions of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem (which do excellent work). This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 March 26, 2018 at 10:26 am I’m not sure that Jesus himself would have been particularly pleased to hear the Presiding Bishop compare his entrance into Jerusalem with the demonstrators’ entrance into Washington on Saturday. March 26, 2018 at 12:25 pm I don’t know of anyone other than Borg & Crossan who make the claim that Jesus and Pilate entered Jerusalem simultaneously on Palm Sunday. Tellingly, Borg and Crossan don’t footnote or otherwise substantiate their claim. It appears to be just a sensational claim by two guys who make their living writing books for the popular Christianity market in order to increase their book sales. I have found on the internet a number of sermons by Episcopal clergy referencing Borg & Crossan’s book as evidence of this “fact” and am disappointed that so many of our clergy read so uncritically. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Holy Week/Easter, David Paulsen says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH PJ Cabbiness says: “The world doesn’t have to be this way because God has a dream and a vision for this world, and nothing can stop God’s dream,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry tells the congregation during the Palm Sunday Eucharist at the Anglican Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr in Jerusalem. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Jerusalem] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry began Holy Week in the Holy City of Jerusalem by proclaiming the good news that Jesus has shown the world a way to live that is based in love, not tyranny, and can lead to the coming of the kingdom.During his sermon at the Holy Eucharist at the Anglican Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr, Curry contrasted the simultaneous entry into Jerusalem of two very different men: Jesus and Pontius Pilate. The latter, Curry said, rode in from the West on a war horse with legions of Roman soldiers and with “all of his disdain and arrogance and worldly power.”“Jesus came in on the other side of town on a donkey,” Curry said, adding that Jesus’ timing was no coincidence. He meant to show that “there is another way; that you don’t have to live this way. The world doesn’t have to be this way because God has a dream and a vision for this world, and nothing can stop God’s dream.”War, violence and hatred do not work, Curry said. “They may work for a day; tyrants may endure for a day, but they do not last.”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has a pensive moment March 25 outside St. George’s College at the Anglican Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr in Jerusalem before the Palm Sunday service begins. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceJesus shows a way to life in which there is room for all and the creation is preserved. “A way that can help us find life, real life,” Curry said.The presiding bishop told the congregation about the March 24 marches all over the United States led by students who want to end gun violence. He compared their entrance into Washington, D.C., with Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem.Echoing “All Glory, Laud and Honor,” the traditional Palm Sunday processional hymn, Curry said, “Yesterday, our children made hosannas ring again for they wanted the leaders of the nations, the leaders of my beloved country, to hear that the way of violence is not the way.”“They marched for peace, they spoke of love, they asked our leaders to change laws so that all could be saved.”The resurrection that comes a week after Palm Sunday, Curry said, was “God’s way of showing us that love, in the end, will win. God’s dream – God’s kingdom – will come on earth as in heaven.”The Palm Sunday morning service, celebrated in Arabic and English, was preceded by the blessing of palm branches and a procession from St. George’s College Square into the cathedral, located on Nablus Road in East Jerusalem.The Rt. Rev. Suheil Dawani, Anglican archbishop in Jerusalem, invited Curry to make a Holy Week pilgrimage through the Holy Land. The journey began in Amman, Jordan, on March 24. There, Curry went to St. Paul’s Church in the eastern part of the capital city to listen to the stories of Iraqi Christian refugees to whom the church ministers. Curry and his group then toured the site of Jesus’ baptism on the Jordan River, a UNESCO World Heritage site that is run by the Baptism Site Commission, an independent board of trustees appointed by H.M. King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein.Curry will spend the week with Dawani exploring the ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, which is spread over five countries – Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria. He has also begun learning about the struggles of the declining Christian population in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East.Throughout the week, the presiding bishop will also join Holy Week services, observances and celebrations, including the traditional Maundy Thursday foot washing and the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday.In the first two days of their pilgrimage, both Curry and Dawani spoke of continuing to deepen what each called a long-standing relationship. During his sermon at a Palm Sunday Evensong, the archbishop welcomed Curry on his first official visit since becoming presiding bishop in 2015. Dawani was the first person to congratulate Curry after his installation at Washington National Cathedral.The archbishop made Curry an episcopal canon of St. George’s Cathedral during Evensong. Dawani said he prayed that this honor would help the presiding bishop carry “this cathedral and the people of this land in your heart throughout your ministry.”The Very Rev. Hosam Naoum, dean of St. George’s, told Episcopal News Service that it is “intrinsic and essential” to have the Episcopal Church represented in the cathedral as an episcopal canon. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and the leaders of Anglican Communion provinces in each continent also hold such status. Former Presiding Bishops Ed Browning and Frank Griswold also held the position during their tenures. Then-Los Angeles Bishop Jon Bruno held the position when Katharine Jefferts Schori was presiding bishop, according to Naoum.“The cathedral here becomes a sign for unity in the Anglican Communion, despite all the difference we have,” he said. “That is the message that comes out from Jerusalem to the whole worldwide church.”The canons are expected to pray for the cathedral and the diocese’s ministry as a way to “strengthen and deepen” the existing relationships. “It also becomes a mutual relationship where we will also be supportive of your ministry” in the Episcopal Church, the dean said.Those relationships “become a beacon of how for the whole world when the church is united as a community and as a family of Christ,” he said.Such unified Christian communities are becoming more and more important, the archbishop said. During his sermon, Dawani said Jerusalem’s traditional Palm Sunday procession up and down the Mount of Olives includes Christians of every denomination and expression. More than 20,000 pilgrims walk together, “reminding us that in this land the Christians speak with one voice; this is a voice that must speak in a way that speaks the truth of Christ, sometimes even in the face of great forces.”Those who would be what Dawani called “Christ’s prophets in the world” must know that, especially in the Middle East, communities and people are suffering because others “do not respond in love, but in hate.”The archbishop reminded Curry that he had heard some of the stories of what happens when people do not respond with love when he met with Iraqi Christian refugees in Jordan. He asked Curry to tell their stories to those who could help the refugees leave the limbo in which they find themselves.“These people lost everything, but not their faith,” the Rev. George Al-Kopti, vicar of St. Paul’s, told Curry during his visit. “It challenges me: What shall I do if that happens to me?”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Jerusalem Anglican Archbishop Suheil Dawani pose with Iraqi Christian refugees outside of St. Paul’s Church in Amman, Jordan, after their March 24 meeting. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAl-Kopti said St. Paul’s began working with Syrian refugees, but most of them have been able to leave Jordan. Now, they minister to the Iraqi Christians, who told Curry they are not allowed to work, and they feel unwelcome in Jordan. However, persecution in Iraq means they cannot go home. They are waiting for official United Nations designation as refugees, which would allow them to emigrate.The Rev. George Al-Kopti, vicar of St. Paul’s Church in Amman, Jordan, left, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Jerusalem Anglican Archbishop Suheil Dawani, and the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church, listen March 24 to the stories of Iraqi Christian refugees at St. Paul’s. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“I am a Christian and I have the peace of Christ in my heart. I know from the Bible that Christians are to be persecuted, but this is a bad situation we live with in Jordan after we get our homes and our country, and our lives there taken from us,” one woman told Curry. “We’re waiting. We’re doing nothing. We’re waiting to have life.”Al-Kopti said the story of Iraqi Christian refugees “is not on TV; it is not on the media. Everybody is silent about their agony, about their losses.”“We would like you to be a voice for them,” he told the presiding bishop.Curry spent almost an hour listening to a group of close to 30 men and women, some of whom came with their children. “We want your brothers and sisters in the United States and in other countries to hear your story and understand your struggle,” Curry said. “We are brothers and sisters in Christ, and maybe one way we can help you is to be sure your story is heard in the U.S.”“We will do our very best to help your story to be told. You are not alone. We follow Jesus and he rose from the dead, and because he lives we can face tomorrow.”The presiding bishop is accompanied by the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church; the Rev. Margaret Rose, Episcopal Church deputy for ecumenical and interfaith relations; the Rev. Robert Edmunds, Episcopal Church Middle East partnership officer; and Sharon Jones, Curry’s executive coordinator.Editor’s note: A previous version of this story mistakenly reported that former Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was an episcopal canon at St. George’s Cathedral.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is interim managing editor of the Episcopal News Service. Tags New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Presiding Bishop 2018 Holy Land pilgrimage, March 26, 2018 at 4:56 pm I am heartened by Michael’s visit to St. George’s and his intention to visit the Diocese’s other institutions elsewhere in Palestine – perhaps Gaza’s Ahli Hospital; St. Phillip’s parish in Nablus (and maybe the nearby Balata refugee camp); St. Peters in Birzeit (and maybe the nearby university). I hope that he and his team also have an opportunity to visit pilgrimage sites like the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron and that, while in those cities, they have a chance to experience, say, Hebron’s Shuhada Street and maybe pray at the Wall where Francis did in Bethlehem’s Aida refugee camp. I pray that, as they walk the Holy Land, they do so with open eyes, open ears, and open hearts, guided every step by the Holy Spirit. I am grateful the Presiding Bishop has embarked on this journey and wish him and his team a life-changing Holy Week.

Tenuous connections based on political will alone. The glory of Easter is not reflected in Marxist ideology or historical/theological revisionism. March 27, 2018 at 1:14 pm Thank you, Mary Frances Schjonberg, for the clarification. I took a delegation led by Bishop Tom Shaw around Hebron once. As we walked up Shuhada Street, open to Israelis and internationals but not to Palestinians, an Israeli military patrol approached us and asked what we were doing. I replied that we were walking up Shuhada Street, something permitted to internationals. They said they’d accompany us. I replied, ‘Well, I’ve got a problem with that. You’re armed.” They did not walk up the street with us. Rector Collierville, TN March 26, 2018 at 1:46 pm Presiding Bishop Michael Curry wasn’t alone in drawing that comparison. Pope Francis also drew parallels between the joyous shouting of Jesus’ followers and the shouting of young people who are getting involved on World Youth Day. “It is up to you not to keep quiet. Even if others keep quiet, if we older people and leaders, some corrupt, keep quiet, if the whole world keeps quiet and loses its joy, I ask you: Will you cry out?” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/03/25/the-pope-has-always-denounced-gun-violence-this-is-what-he-said-to-fed-up-teens/ Comments (15) March 27, 2018 at 8:27 am I would appreciate verification/clarification of ‘the security required which is surely armed and present in numbers.” On one of my times in East Jerusalem, I remember a small group of tourists/pilgrims entering the Syrian Orthodox Church of St. Mark in Jerusalem’s Old City accompanied by a person armed with a semi-automatic rifle. I, along with my companion, were appalled. I would be sad and angry if Anglican and Episcopal clergy were accompanied by armed security personnel in their travels.

I do recall that on a trip to Israel many years ago I decided to visit Nablus by public bus from Jerusalem. This was about the time of the first intifadah and I was told when I returned to Jerusalem that I had been brave to go because a German tourist had been murdered in Nablus just a couple of weeks previously. For me, the experience of walking around Nablus by myself with a few locals following out of curiosity was something to remember. Especially do I recall sitting in the local souk drinking tea for a couple of hours, leaving when the owner of a butcher shop across the street invited me to accompany him to take a look at his new refrigeration system. I wonder whether I could do that today without being a lot more concerned about my personal safety.

Rector Smithfield, NC March 26, 2018 at 5:46 pm I’m glad to see Bishop Curry making this pilgrimage, and I hear his message that the Way Jesus showed us refutes violence, hatred and fear of others – and that is the connection between the Washington DC march and Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem, not “gun control” as someone wrote above.

Fontanez pleads guilty

first_img Leader Of Heroin Trafficking Organization sentencedFrom The Orange County Sheriff’s OfficeU.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces that Angel Manuel Fontanez (32, Clermont) pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute heroin and cocaine, as well as individual counts of distributing and possessing heroin.Angel Manuel FontanezHe faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years, up to life, in federal prison.Fontanez was indicted on March 23, 2016, along with co-conspirators Alexis Fontanez Nieves, Ernesto Cabanas-Torres, Zuleyka Jeanette Colon-Rivera, Pedro Juan Rivera-Aviles, Wilbert Joel Alequin-Pagan, Robert Sautner, and Emmanuel Verges. To date, four of the eight defendants have been convicted of a federal drug offense.A trial date for the remaining individuals is currently set for October 24, 2016.According to court documents, a drug trafficking organization whose members referred to themselves as “La Compania” or “the Company” used a telephone number (“the heroin line”) that frequently changed to sell heroin to customers primarily in the Orlando tourist district, near International Drive.Customers would call the heroin line and arrange to purchase heroin from a member of the organization. The heroin line changed hands from one member of the organization to the next, as heroin was sold during two 12-hour shifts, seven days a week.This case is the result of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation. The investigation was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, with assistance from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, the United States Marshals Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Orlando Police Department.

All Blacks vs France Highlights

In the wet, the dominant All Blacks made it look like an easy game, and never gave France a sniff.We’re all wondering now… will the AB’s choke again at next years World Cup, or will they finally capture the Webb Ellis trophy that has been eluding them ever since 1987?

first_imgSunday Feb 13, 2011 Wales get much needed win over Scotland at Murrayfield Wales finally broke their eight-match losing streak with a hard-fought 24-6 RBS 6 Nations victory over Scotland at Murrayfield this weekend.Wales, who had not won an Test match since March 2010, ran out victors in a scrappy game that was littered with handling errors and penalties.They got the dream start when fly-half James Hook punctured the Scottish defence and off-loaded to the supporting Shane Williams for a converted score. Perpignan-bound Hook then slotted three more penalties to give Wales a 0-16 advantage over the home side.Dan Parks got Scotlands first points with a penalty, although several try-scoring opportunities went begging: Joe Ansbro knocked-on when Wales were reduced to 13 men following yellow cards to Bradley Davies and Lee Byrne, and then John Barclay failed to hold-on to the ball near the whitewash.The sides remained dead-locked for large portions of the match, as the Scots couldnt find a cutting edge to penetrate an impressive Welsh defensive effort.Sean Lamont was the standout player for the Scots, whilst Jamie Roberts looked to have regained some of the rampaging form that made him the 2010 Lions player-of-the-tour.The game was eventually sealed when Williams touched down for his second score, chasing a Jonathan Davies kick, which put the win beyond the reach of a stuttering Scottish side.Following the game, Welsh Captain Matthew Rees said: “We’ve been a wounded animal all week after the England game and we knew it wasn’t an easy task coming up here to get a result.“The commitment, the endeavour, everything was there for us, especially going down to 13 men at one point. Discipline was a bit of an issue, but to come away with a 24-6 win was a great result for us.”A fuming Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “We made too many errors particularly in that first 20 minutes. That is unacceptable, what happened today. We’ve gone back a couple of steps.” If you fancy a game with a bit more excitement, have a look back at last year’s fixture between the two sides, which was packed with action from start to finish.

K5-house [house of slow life] was built in natural environment of the countryside of Kurume city in Fukuoka. Site is in quiet countryside and many families live there happily with each other for quite a long time. So I design this house with the concept of harmonizing architecture and natural environment to make the family live a slow happy life with neighbors there.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiAppearance is like sharp shape made of white and black color. Outer wall next to entrance is protruded diagonally and pasted red cedar on one side to make it friendly to family.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiThe wood deck in front of living room is used as play yard for children and oasis for the family. This is the first communication place for this family because aluminum sash can be fully open and let interior connect exterior with each other closely.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiHollowed out space where locates in front of Japanese-style room and next to entrance is the second communication place for this family and surrounding people. In doll festival (3rd March), surrounding people can also see the decoration of Japanese-style room from this space.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThere is a semibasement under kitchen & dining room. Children can dance and enjoy theater there. By designing these three different levels of skip floors, family can take relax there like sitting on a bench. Also space can change flexibly by movable screen between living and kitchen & dining room.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiStairs that are supported by colonnades of red cedar looks floating in the air. I designed indirect light in handrail of stairs. So stairs become a part of living room by the gentle light from colonnades of red cedar.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiI designed this architecture in harmony with people and surrounding nature so that the family could live slowly and happily in this house.Project gallerySee allShow lessOffice Design / IND ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRichard Levy Gallery Hatches Architectural Birdhouse CompetitionArchitecture News Share Architects: Architect Show Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeArchitect ShowOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKurumeHousesJapanPublished on August 11, 2014Cite: “K5-House / Architect Show” 11 Aug 2014.

Management Is Key to Preventing Weed Resistance

first_img Facebook Twitter Management Is Key to Preventing Weed Resistance SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Management Is Key to Preventing Weed Resistance Kevin CoolWeed and insect resistance is a serious agronomic issue in Indiana and in most of the eastern Corn Belt. While there is lots of new chemistry to combat resistance, management is still the key.  Indiana farmers have seen resistant weeds showing up in their fields in greater numbers the past few growing seasons. This resistance will only continue to increase unless steps are taken to break the cycle.  Kevin Cool, with Becks Hybrids, says rotating modes of action and proper management are the first steps, “You have got to get back to basics, making sure we are using the proper rates, pay attention to timing, getting the weeds while they are still small enough to control.”  He said the glyphosate system was very flexible and some producers got lax in weed management. By Gary Truitt – Feb 10, 2013 Beck’s is recommending the Liberty Link technology as a way to mix modes of action, but Cool says there are a variety of tools available.  He added that management is at the core of a weed resistance strategy, “There is not a silver bullet; it is going to come down to an effective management style. No matter what system a farmer uses, he needs to follow the label, paying attention to timing restrictions.” He added each farmer has his own management style and will have to make adjustments to make these tools work together with his style and the specific needs of his operation.center_img Previous articleEPA Approves New Fueling Configuration for E15Next articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 2/11/2013 Evening Comment With Gary Wilhelmi Gary Truitt For more information on weed and insect resistance, visit Becks Hybrids’ web site.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/02/resistancewrap.mp3|titles=Management Is Key to Preventing Weed Resistance] SHARE Facebook Twitter Weed resistance is only part of the problem. Insect resistance, while not an issue in the Eastern Corn Belt now, is something to watch for. He told HAT insect resistance will need to be approached like weed resistance, “We are going to have to manage our insecticides and mix those modes of action.  We are going to have to avoid the habit of just using the same insect controls year after year.” He urged growers to prolong the life of these tools by taking the time to use multiple products and modes of action.last_img read more

High Oleic Soy Forging Ahead

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News High Oleic Soy Forging Ahead SHARE High Oleic Soy Forging Ahead high-oleic-ready-to-turn-tideGood standing soybeans with minimal disease issues and excellent yields. That’s the report in a nutshell from Cass County, Indiana farmer Kevin Wilson after finishing his high oleic soybean harvest this year. Wilson has grown the beans for a number of years, and with about 560 acres this year, he has a significant sample size for the positive report.“Our yields this year are like most for the soybeans I think, better than they have been for the past year or two, so we’re pleased,” he said. “The high oleic seem to be every bit of our regular beans, so we were pleased with that as well.”These soybeans produce a zero-trans fat oil with high heat stability, important components for attracting additional food and industrial markets, which is a priority for the United Soybean Board, for which Wilson serves as a director. He told HAT there is now a strong focus on getting more high oleic planted acres, and 2016 was another year of progress.“I know we were up quite a bit here in Indiana and then we got started in parts of Nebraska and Iowa as they had some of their first ones out there. Ohio is up from where they were a year ago, so we’re making progress. It’s like a lot of things in that part of what’s holding it back I think is the approval process. We’re still waiting final approval from an EU standpoint, one that we all thought we would have done a couple of years ago.”Much has been learned about logistics like keeping the oil separate, and if EU approval comes this winter Wilson believes the high oleic effort could ratchet into a much higher gear.“ADM and Bunge and some of these other companies that are getting interested and they’re wanting more and more acres. The premiums that are being offered right now are a little bit more enticing at the price levels that we have currently, so I see this thing I think turning the tide a little bit.”Wilson adds next year will see more available varieties than ever.
