Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL The Rev. Dr. Roger Ferlo[Bexley Seabury press release] Bexley Seabury, one of 10 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church, Dec. 13 announced that the Rev. Dr. Roger Ferlo will conclude his term as president on schedule, in fall 2017.Ferlo will retire after 32 years of ordained ministry and five years of service as the first president of Bexley Seabury. A search is under way for the next president; information and how to nominate can be viewed here.Since Ferlo joined Bexley Seabury, in March 2012, the seminary has introduced a series of operational and curriculum changes toward fulfilling its vision “to be a 21st-century seminary beyond walls—open to all who seek to deepen their Christian formation in a generous spiritual and intellectual tradition.” Changes under Ferlo’s leadership include a more diverse faculty and student body; consolidated operations in Chicago’s historic Hyde Park/Woodlawn district; a new low-residency Master of Divinity program that incorporates a new model for spiritual formation through internships in students’ local communities that are designed and supervised in collaboration with Episcopal dioceses; and increased enrollment, currently 76 degree and diploma students.“President Ferlo has led Bexley Seabury with equal measures of imagination and pragmatism,” said Board of Directors Chair the Rt. Rev. W. Michie Klusmeyer. “I believe the Ferlo era at Bexley Seabury will be remembered as a period of innovation and restoration that laid a firm foundation for the seminary’s next phase of service to the church.”A native of Rome, New York, Ferlo came to Bexley Seabury from Virginia Theological Seminary where he was associate dean and director of the Institute of Christian Formation and Leadership and also served as professor of religion and culture. Earlier, Ferlo spent 19 years in parish ministry, in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New York. He has more than 17 years of teaching experience at the university and seminary levels, including as professor of biblical interpretation and the practice of ministry atBexley Seabury. Ferlo trained for the priesthood at General Theological Seminary after earning an A.B. (summa cum laude) degree at Colgate University, and M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. degrees at Yale University. He was one of the first recipients of the Yale Faculty Distinguished Teaching Prize. Colgate University awarded Ferlo an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree in 2002. He has authored and edited three books and has published numerous essays, sermons, and reflections.“My time at Bexley Seabury has enriched every aspect of my life,” Ferlo said. “I look forward to contributing all I can in my remaining time, and to celebrating with this exceptionally gifted community.” Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Featured Events Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Featured Jobs & Calls Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Shreveport, LA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Bexley Seabury President Roger Ferlo to retire in fall 2017 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Collierville, TN TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Knoxville, TN The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Posted Dec 13, 2016 Submit a Job Listing Submit an Event Listing Rector Pittsburgh, PA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Smithfield, NC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Bath, NC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Press Release Service Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Tags Theological Education People, Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Ecuador’s COVID-19 death toll is among the highest in the world. Photo: Santiago Arcos/REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] Every night at 8 p.m., Diocese of Ecuador Litoral Bishop Cristóbal León Lozano prays for Episcopalians in his diocese who have contracted COVID-19. In mid-March, the list included just four names, but by Holy Week, the list spanned seven pages. He also keeps a separate prayer list for families in need of health services and protection.“The fear is real; we all feel death is around us,” Lozano told Episcopal News Service. “Our clergy are coping with the emotional toll of everyone around them. This is why we meet virtually every day; we pray, talk and cry if we need it.”In early April, shocking images went viral of corpses left on the streets in Guayaquil, a port city southwest of Ecuador’s capital Quito. The images depicted a perfect storm: In late March, the government imposed a strict 15-hour curfew limiting citizens’ mobility; the state’s health care system collapsed with rising infection rates; and its morgues and mortuaries exceeded capacity, forcing families to live alongside the bodies of those who’d died at home.Like their counterparts worldwide, The Episcopal Church’s Latin America-based Province IX dioceses have moved much of their pastoral work online and have continued some in-person outreach to their communities despite government-imposed lockdowns, but the situation in Guayaquil has laid bare a system in collapse.“It is hard to trust the official death toll because people are dying at home,” Lozano said, adding that the health care system’s collapse makes the actual numbers and cause of death difficult to certify, and that the risks associated with family members caring for infected patients at home has intensified the virus’ spread. “The risk of contracting the virus on the streets is now higher,” he said.As of April 30, Ecuador’s public health ministry reported 24,258 coronavirus cases, with 20,103 patients being treated at home. The official death count stands at 871, though that number is predicted to be much higher. Brazil reports the highest number of cases, 71,886, in Latin America, followed by Peru at 31,190, according to the World Health Organization. The Dominican Republic has reported 6,652 cases; Colombia, 5,949; Cuba, 1,467 cases; Puerto Rico, 1,433; and Honduras, 738.The Episcopal Church’s seven Province IX dioceses cover the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico and five countries in Latin America and the Caribbean: the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Venezuela, Ecuador and Colombia. The province’s bishops meet online weekly to share information about what’s happening in their dioceses and their countries, and to offer support to one another.“We all are having a tough time,” Puerto Rico Bishop Rafael Morales, who also serves as the province’s president, told ENS. “I personally even had to celebrate a funeral by phone the other day, but our brothers and sisters in Ecuador are off the charts. They have our support, and they are in our daily prayers.”Amid the chaos and despair, the church’s call is to offer spiritual and emotional support, which is a challenge while being under lockdown. Still, the creativity shown by clergy and laity to maintain a sense of community using online tools has impressed the Rev. Glenda McQueen, The Episcopal Church’s partnership officer for Latin America and the Caribbean.“We went from asking what to do if the temples should remain closed to confirming that we all are the church. We are a community no matter where each person is, and technology is keeping us connected,” McQueen said.Like many Episcopal churches, the Latin America-based churches are livestreaming Sunday Eucharist and keeping in touch via Facebook, WhatsApp and other messaging apps to maintain connection and pray for one another at a distance.“We have had to reinvent ourselves. We have put all our effort and heart into working with technology, but that heart is beating hard in the lives of our communities,” Morales said.Episcopal and Anglican dioceses in Panama, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador confirmed to ENS that they are using online platforms to be in touch with their parishioners. However, in dioceses like Venezuela, where internet access is limited and where the country has been undergoing a dramatic political crisis for years, the challenge is harder.Coromoto Salazar, a member of the Diocese of Venezuela’s Standing Committee, said clergy are working around unstable internet connections by recording sermons and prayers and sending the audio files to parishioners via WhatsApp and using landlines to stay connected to elderly, less technologically nimble parishioners who may be isolated and alone.“We make [landline] calls to check on people. We have chat groups. We are doing everything to feel that we are in this together. A large group of our parishioners are elderly, so they are at high risk of contagion and some of them live alone,” Salazar said.The standing committee also approved a stipend for struggling clergy, she said.In the Diocese of Honduras, where in rural areas access to computers and the internet is scarce, smartphones have allowed churches to maintain connection, and even some training programs have carried on via WhatsApp, Bishop Lloyd Allen said.The diocese is also working to support its clergy who are struggling financially, and then there are the diocese’s own financial concerns. “We might only survive like this for two more months,” Allen told ENS.In Colombia, the government’s quarantine allowed churches to continue providing social assistance in their communities, and the diocese has been able to continue operating some of its parish-based feeding programs, said Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque Gómez.The diocese has focused its food pantry program on meeting the needs of the elderly; people ages 70 and older have been told not to leave their homes under the South American nation’s quarantine regulations. The diocese is also participating with others to feed Venezuelan migrants who are returning to their home country because of the lockdown, which prevents them from working and feeding themselves and their families. Venezuela has been suffering from an ongoing political and socioeconomic crisis over the last decade, with its residents fleeing to neighboring countries for work and protection. Moreover, migrants and asylum-seekers have fled poor economic and security situations throughout the Americas, but particularly Central America’s Northern Triangle – El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.Episcopal churches in Latin America also maintain close contact with the Anglican-Episcopal churches that form the Anglican Province of Central America.In El Salvador, the Anglican diocese and the Episcopal-affiliated organization Cristosal are working to protect citizens’ constitutional rights. El Salvador’s government moved quickly to contain the virus’ spread by imposing strict quarantine measures and temporarily suspending citizens’ constitutional rights, which international human rights organizations have criticized as an abuse of power.“As a church, we are watching that the government guarantees that the restrictions imposed do not violate human rights,” El Salvador Bishop David Alvarado said.The Diocese of El Salvador has a long history of defending human rights, going to back to the country’s civil war. Cristosal, a leading human rights organization in the region that was born out of the Salvadoran church’s longstanding connection with U.S. Episcopalians, continues to defend human rights and respond to forced displacement in the region.In the long term, bishops are bracing for high levels of unemployment, food scarcity and other public health emergencies, while trying to be present and prepare for the future.“This will pass, and then we will have a lot of work to do. Being under lockdown must help us to grow and to be ready for the next stage,” said Morales, the bishop of Puerto Rico. “We are celebrating Easter these days; may God pass by our lives and makes us stronger to keep moving forward with his protection.”– Clara Villatoro is a freelance journalist based in San Salvador, El Salvador.

In principle the double-storey apartments and the two roof apartments are encapsulated in each other so that the quality of the four-sided building is fully exploited. Common place and unrefined materials such as concrete, timber, wood and glvanised steel were chosen, which animated each other when combined.

Save this picture!The basement, the vertical stairwells and the partitioning walls between the apartment units are made of concrete cast in situ (basic shuttering). This guarentees that the fire proofing and acoustic demands set by the timber elements, which constitute most of the rest of the spatial structure, are met.

Chris Coe, Oxfam’s Trading Director said: “Shop managers and Area Managers are reporting huge donations of both cash and saleable items. Every Oxfam shop in every community only needs the extra help of 10 or 12 people for four hours a week to generate millions for Oxfam’s work every year.” Oxfam raises £4.5 million in one week Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Research / statistics Trading Volunteering Oxfam has received donations totalling £4.5 million in just one week in response to the earthquake floods in Asia.The charity announced the figure to supporters via its email newsletter. “Thank you.

SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Taking Another Look at Soybeans vs Corn Previous articleHerbruck’s to Break Ground on New Egg FacilityNext articleIndiana Soybean Organization Celebrates 50 Years Gary Truitt RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribe Taking Another Look at Soybeans vs CornIn last week’s Planting Intentions report, the USDA said U.S. farmers would plant 5.6 million more acres of corn in 2016. This has pushed corn prices lower and may be giving growers a reason to think twice about making the switch to soybeans. That is the topic of HAT’s newest Better Farming Report, sponsored by the Indiana Soybean Checkoff and the Indiana Soybean Alliance.In the newest, Better Farming video report, Dr. Jim Mintert and Dr. Shawn Casteel make the case that planting soybeans may be a better and lower cost option for growers in 2016. Mintert says soybean costs have come down from what they were in 2015. “From 2002 to 2004, we had production costs under $2 a bushel. In 2015, that approached $4 a bushel, but we have seen costs come down for 2016, due mainly to some reductions in fertilizer costs.” Mintert said, on average, 2016 variable production costs for soybeans should be around $3.50, “So anything we can do to increase yield will drop that figure significantly.”Dr. Casteel says growers need to think about the benefits of soybeans, “In recent years, soybeans have been our rescue crop. In drought years and even in wet years like 2015, soybean yields have held up.” Some of the research that Dr. Casteel has done at Purdue shows there are changes we can make in producing soybeans that can improve yields and lower production costs. He discusses those in the video report, “By simply adjusting planting dates, growers can see an increase in soybean yields.”Mintert says considering a switch to soybeans is just one of many things that can be done to help lower our cost of production, “There is not one thing, but a combination of many things that can help growers lessen the loss from the 2016 crop.”Watch the Better Farming video report on our the HAT web site.

Receive email alerts Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News March 17, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Courts refuse to back down, so journalists to remain in prison pending trial Help by sharing this information April 28, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Organisation Follow the news on Turkey Reporters Without Borders is outraged by today’s court ruling rejecting a request for the provisional release of investigative journalists Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener, who were arrested on 3 March. They will now have to spend months in prison pending trial on a charge of belonging to an alleged conspiracy called Ergenekon, which the authorities regard as “terrorist organization.” The court ordered their continued detention under article 100-3 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CMK), applicable when there is a risk that “the accused could flee (…) conceal or damage evidence (…) or apply pressure to witnesses.” Reporters Without Borders regards these grounds as totally absurd and urges prosecutors to produce the evidence they claim to have against the two journalists. The ruling comes amid a continuing campaign in Turkey and abroad for their release. In an unprecedented development in Turkey, more than 5,000 demonstrated in Istanbul on Sunday (13 March) for the second week running in response to a call from the Freedom for Journalists Platform (GÖP). The many searches and arrests carried out by the police on 3 March have been widely condemned internationally as serious press freedom violations.In a letter to the web portal Bianet yesterday, Sik said he did not know why he was in prison but was aware that his arrest was “eminently political.” Sik had just finished writing a book about the influence of a Muslim group, Fetullah Gülen, within the Turkish state and the national police. Many commentators have said its claims would have been embarrassing for the government ahead of the parliamentary elections in June.Dozens of people have been arrested in the course of the Ergenekon investigation that began in June 2007. Initially hailed as a sign of progress for Turkish democracy, as senior military officers were among those detained, the investigation has acquired an increasingly repressive character, as evidenced by the detention of Sik and Sener.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the immediate and unconditional release of these two journalists.Any journalist who tries to cover stories related to the security apparatus or Turkey’s ethnic minorities is liable to be prosecuted. Ertugrul Mavioglu is due to be tried in the next few days for interviewing a leader of the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq. Reporters Without Borders plans to follow the trial closely. He has already been prosecuted with Sik in connection with the two-volume book on the Ergenekon case they wrote together.

Google+ By News Highland – February 27, 2013 WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Facebook EU fishery ministers have agreed to implement a ban on discards – the wasteful practice of dumping unwanted fish overboard so fishermen do not exceed their quotas.Talks ran overnight, but ministers reached a “general approach” on the discard ban adopted in June last year as part of an overhaul of fisheries policy.The key principle is that all fish caught will be landed, with none discarded, but fisherman will be granted leeway on existing quotas so that they can adjust over time to the new approach.Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney has called the agreement “a historic milestone”.Donegal Deputy Joe McHugh has welcomed the move but says it should be used to trigger discussions to take place to ensure Donegal fishermen get a better deal on quotas:[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/fishjoe.mp3[/podcast] Pinterest Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Facebook Dail to vote later on extending emergency Covid powers Dail hears questions over design, funding and operation of Mica redress scheme Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released Agreement reached in Europe to ban fish discards Previous articleState to open its case in Marie Fleming’s right to die appealNext articleGovernment goes ahead with disability cuts News Highland News PSNI and Gardai urged to investigate Adams’ claims he sheltered on-the-run suspect in Donegal RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp HSE warns of ‘widespread cancellations’ of appointments next week Google+ Twitter
