Gene Hawkins says: May 6, 2015 at 11:12 pm I have had the pleasure of growing up with Michael Curry under his dad Kenneth Curry in old St. Phillip’s Buffalo and now I serve with Ian Douglas in Connecticut. Let us fast and pray over the next coming weeks that we may serve Christ, presenting ourselves, our souls and bodies for the mission of God on earth. [Episcopal News Service] The Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop May 1 announced the names of the bishops it will nominate this summer to succeed Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.The four names will be formally submitted to the General Convention during a joint session on June 26, the day prior to the day set for the election by the House of Bishops of the 27th presiding bishop. The nominees are:The Rt. Rev. Thomas Breidenthal, 64, Diocese of Southern OhioThe Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, 62, Diocese of North CarolinaThe Rt. Rev. Ian Douglas, 56, Diocese of ConnecticutThe Rt. Rev. Dabney Smith, 61, Diocese of Southwest FloridaThe committee’s formal announcement, along with biographical information about each nominee, is posted on the General Convention website here in English, Spanish and French.Breidenthal was dean of religious life and of the chapel at Princeton University in New Jersey when he was elected on Nov. 11, 2006, to be the ninth bishop of Southern Ohio. He was ordained and consecrated April 28, 2007. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1974 from Portland State University, a Master of Arts degree from the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, in 1977, a Master of Divinity degree in 1981 from Church Divinity School of the Pacific and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in theology from Oxford University in 1991.Curry was the rector of St. James’ Episcopal Church, Baltimore, Maryland, when he was elected on February 11, 2000, to be the 11th bishop of North Carolina. He was ordained and consecrated on June 17, 2000. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975 from Hobart and William Smith College, in Geneva, New York, and a Master of Divinity degree in 1978 from the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale.Douglas was the Angus Dun Professor of Mission and World Christianity at Episcopal Divinity School when he was elected on Oct. 24, 2009, to be the 15th bishop of Connecticut. He was ordained and consecrated on April 17, 2010. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1980 from Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont, and a Masters of Education in counseling and consulting psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 1982.

The committee recently outlined the process that must be followed before any additional bishop may be nominated in that manner.Jefferts Schori and President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings recently wrote to their houses with information about the bishops’ election and deputies’ confirmation process that will be followed at convention. That information is here.All of the nominees will be given the opportunity to address both houses of General Convention the afternoon of June  24. Their names will be formally submitted to the General Convention during a joint session of the two houses on June 26. Nominations from the floor, done according to the committee’s process, will happen during that session as well.Bishops will gather at the Convention Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. on June 27 in the Salt Palace Convention Center. Following that, the bishops with seat, voice, and vote will board buses to travel to St. Mark’s Cathedral, where the election will take place in the context of prayer and reflection.Once the election has taken place, Jefferts Schori will send a delegation to Jennings to inform her of the name of the bishop who has been elected. Jennings will refer the name to the House of Deputies legislative committee on the Confirmation of the Presiding Bishop without announcing the name to the full House. The legislative committee will make a recommendation to the House of Deputies whether to confirm the election or not confirm, and the House of Deputies will immediately vote on the recommendation. Jennings will then appoint a delegation of deputies to notify the House of Bishops of the action taken.“No communication is permitted from the House of Bishops during the election and until confirmation is received. I know this will be a challenge, but ask your cooperation and faithfulness to our mutual life and accountability,” Jefferts Schori said in her letter to the bishops.The presiding bishop-elect will preach at the convention’s closing Eucharist on July 3, and Jefferts Schori will preside. The presiding bishop-elect’s nine-year term officially begins Nov. 1, 2015.The presiding bishop is primate and chief pastor of the church, chair of the Executive Council, and president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.The 78th General Convention meets June 25 – July 3, in Salt Lake City, Utah. General Convention, Comments (33) Rector Shreveport, LA Tags Rev. Tom Buechele says: Richard McClellan says: May 5, 2015 at 9:26 am Dear Pat Trytten, “Old, male institution” has absolutely nothing to do with Bishop Curry. I wish most 30 year olds had half of his energy, drive, and ability to get across the love of Christ to others. He is about serving God by actively helping all of God’s children, from migrant farm workers to inner city dwellers to all of those who live and work in North Carolina and far beyond. Our diocese has been blessed and spiritually enriched to have him. R.L. Cherry says: General Convention 2015, An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 May 5, 2015 at 3:52 pm Any of the four Bishops nominated would be well qualified for the job.

From what I have heard the answer is NO. June 17, 2015 at 7:52 pm I nominated him, so it was either his choice not to stand or the committee’s not to have him. He is, indeed, a great choice. Also, young so …. 2024? House of Bishops, May 3, 2015 at 2:21 am It is a great news. We together pray that the spirit will guide these great men of GOD Rector Tampa, FL Bishop Elections, May 2, 2015 at 8:58 am Hard to believe that Bishop Greg Rickel from the Diocese of Olympia did not make the list. He is progressive, organizationally minded, and inspiring. I was truly looking forward to learning about the vision he had in leading the Episcopal Church for the next nine years. Our loss not having him in the mix. Martha Richards says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Channing Smith says: Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York May 7, 2015 at 2:17 am I too was disappointed when our Bishop Greg Rickel was deleted from those running for this office but when I saw Bishop Michael Curry’s name on the list my whole body chuckled. After hearing him speak and share his love at a Conference in Atlanta several years ago he captured my heart. He not only loves God….. he truly loves people, EVERYONE…. I mean, men & women, green & blue, poor & rich, small & large, animal, vegetable or mineral. The material he writes and presentations he gives truly pass along his love and care for others. Whoever it may be God bless us with the very best Presiding Bishop that is chosen to replace our wonderful Katharine Jefferts Schori. June 26, 2015 at 8:15 am Peace to all. I wish to thank and support the Rev j, Houston Matthews on his service and comment. You have given much and survived much and your statement should be peel from all of our bells. May God guide our church through this pivotal convention. May all leave with the gifts of the Spirit and bring home the wonder, awe and joy that we are given each day if we only look and accept the love that God so overwhelmingly gives. God bless the Bishops and Deputies as they cast their votes tomorrow. May they and the whole church be re-invigorated with the joy of the Holy Spirit. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 May 7, 2015 at 7:45 pm Indeed Pray that a “Man for all Reasons” will have the Compassion, Spiritual fortitude and Moral backbone to Speak Out Loudly for Truth to Power in our country and world corrupted and dominated with politics and wars–and our desperatly needing a humane/humanitarian world vision–not afraid to speak out loudly for justice and equal rights for all peoples — for the Palestinians now only two(2) percent Christian community remaining in the Holy Land where our Dear Lord Jesus Christ was born and buried, and now millions of refugees in the Middle East abandoned, with Palestinians constantly uprooted and regarded as collateral damage! Who is that man? Is he among these four? Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI The Rev. John Crist says: Pat LeNeave says: June 26, 2015 at 10:28 pm Amen to that! Carolyn sowa, says: May 2, 2015 at 4:48 pm no women in the final 4. There were female candidates earlier on, some of whom withdrew themselves from the process. The fact that all 4 remaining candidates are male doesn’t mean women were left out entirely. It may well be that the 4 candidates truly are the best options from the candidates the search committee considered. June 9, 2015 at 5:06 pm I am so going to miss Katharine Schori. When the church needed a Presiding Bishop with a backbone, Katharine arrived. It is to be hoped the next one has an equally firm backbone and an equally firm commitment to the Episcopal Church. In the face of the Windsor gang’s willingness to countenance the torture and brutality of some African dioceses; its willingness to exclude LGBT folk from full inclusion in the life of Episcopal Church, going backward would be a crime. Amy rose cecil says: May 2, 2015 at 5:07 pm No women? No one west of Ohio? No younger people? Back to the old, male institution. Shame on all of you!

Our Bishop in Ohio is a great man.

He was ordained and consecrated April 28, 2007.

Youth Minister Lorton, VA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Ttus O. Olajide says: Wilma LaRae Neal says: Rector Collierville, TN Ronn Rucker, Ed. D says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA May 29, 2015 at 8:00 pm Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Having served the church for 37 years , I believe e we have four great candidates for PB. As wounded Vietnam Veteran, Priest, Father, and Grandfather, I have been given the grace to survive Vietnam, the Episcopal Church,and cancer. From Prayerbook changes, to the ordination of women, to the inclusion of those of different sexual ordination, we have survived. It is my prayer that we will move forward with love and the grace of a Dietrich Bonhoeffer in celebration of our Anglican Diversity and Anglican Comprehensiveness, so that we may select the PB to lead our weaken Church and to proclaim to the world that Jesus is still Lord of Lord and King of Kings. Pax Featured Events Pat Trytten says: June 6, 2015 at 8:41 pm I am in complete agreement with R I Cherry. We certainly do need a more tolerant PB in regards to conservative Episcopalians. Our present PB has shown through her statements and actions that she couldn’t care less about the concerns of conservative members of this church. I hope and pray that the these four candidates will consider all Episcopalians important to the church regardless of their social or political views and will communicate with conservative congregations rather than litigate. I just want a PB that will indicate loud and clear that in Christ there is no progressive and there is no conservative and that both groups are equally loved and equally important to this denomination. dallas baxter says: May 8, 2015 at 9:38 pm AMEN! Rev. Douglas James says: May 5, 2015 at 9:52 pm The joint nominating committee worked very hard and have selected 4 “men for all seasons”. I am impressed with their degrees and experience. I will add my voice however to some folks dismay that not only were no women put forth as nominees but no Latinos (as)-Hispanos (as) or Asians. The racial face of the USA is changing rapidly and in a short time the convergence of those diverse languages, cultures and spiritualities, largely embedded in USA poverty, must be integrated with a very old aging Episcopal anglo population. A great and challenging task. I pray the one “man for all seasons” elected will lead us into that diversity and inspire us in that direction.and call to justice. May 1, 2015 at 11:10 pm What ? No women nomimated ??? Really ! May 3, 2015 at 7:18 pm He has been a blessing to the diocese of NC. He is so wonderful and we need to prepare our hearts to share him with many others. Bless you Bishop Curry! Rector Martinsville, VA Comments are closed. May 15, 2015 at 5:13 pm Amen. Never met any of the candidates, but they all seem to be well qualified. A job well done by the nominating committee. Submit an Event Listing June 15, 2015 at 2:39 pm Agree – thanks. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY May 3, 2015 at 7:43 pm Recent experience in Maryland has taught that preferring diversity check-off points in preference to call and qualification is a mistake. We need to stop making chromosome counts and pigmentation into a litmus test for enlightenment. Male, female — how about the best of the called, willing, and able — no matter how many diversity points get checked off?

Volunteering England campaigns against DWP’s policy on volunteer lunches

first_img  12 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The DWP’s new Guide to Volunteering while on Benefits says that reimbursement for lunch and other meals counts as earnings, not legitimate expenses. This is unjust (rich people can get reimbursed, someone on income support can’t), could have a serious impact on volunteering especially by young and/or unemployed people, and contradicts other DWP policy statements. Volunteering England and other organisations are campaigning against this change in DWP policy and practice. If the change will affect your volunteers–or even if you won’t, but you are concerned–please adapt the attached letter as appropriate and send it to DWP, Ed Miliband (Minister for the Third Sector) and your MP. Addresses are in the attachment. The letter was written by Kate Bowgett of Off the Streets and into Work (OSW).

What they thought would be something just for them turned into something much bigger than they expected.I rode over with him to Trinity Park underneath I-30 and interviewed him to see what it was all about.(This interview was edited for length and clarity)Kitchin: So Brogan, what’s the story behind Black Smoke Mafia? Cooper: Me and my buddies started an Instagram page called Black Smoke Mafia. Originally, we just had intentions to have a few buddies, kind of post a few truck pictures on it to see if we got any interest off of it, but in two years we’ve actually got up to right around 20,000 followers now.Kitchin: How did you get into trucks? Cooper: My best friend had a truck when he was in high school and we both spent a lot of our time during the summer working on it and so I kind of developed a passion through him, and then from there all of our friends kept building on it, and we just started building more and more relationships with people who enjoy building trucks. One of Black Smoke Mafia’s logos. Cooper said stickers are one of their most popular items that people ask for. (Brandon Kitchin/TCU360)Kitchin: What exactly does Black Smoke Mafia do?Cooper: Initially, like I said, it just started as just the Instagram page. From there we started hosting [truck] meets and after that, we would do events where you could show the performance of your truck where we would have truck-pulls and drag races. Then we started selling our own apparel – shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, hats, and a lot of people wanted stickers for their trucks believe it or not – there’s a big market for those – and it kind of grew from there. We also started hosting some charity events especially during winter time like toy drives. It’s pretty awesome that we can get a community of people behind truck events to do something good for the community.Kitchin: So, it’s like a truck enthusiast club?Cooper: Right. It’s more of a club where we all share the same passion and we’re just trying to extend it as far as we can. I rep Black Smoke Mafia wherever I go. I have people, whether I’m in Texas or California, always asking me for a sticker or a shirt or something. We try and make a little bit of profit off of it, but for the most part, it’s just for fun.Kitchin: What’s it like driving around in your truck? Cooper: It can be a pain. It’s a lot of work to actually drive it. It’s a five-speed manual transmission so it can be a pain knowing that the clutch is actually the size of a clutch for a big-rig so it’s really heavy. It also doesn’t turn very well when it’s in tight spaces so I have to be very conscious of where I’m going and parking for that matter. But as far as driving, I love it. I love the sound, I love the feeling of being in a truck and you can see everything when you’re up that tall so it’s kind of a good view from up there if you ask me.Kitchin: What kind of reactions do you get from people and what do they say?Cooper: I get about 50-50. I’d say half the people I talk to love it, and other people see me and they kind of just look away or they give me a look like ‘what’s this guy doing?’. But for every person that loves it, I think it’s well worth the other half that don’t.Kitchin: Where do you find the space to park your truck? Cooper: I park it at my house but it doesn’t fit in my driveway, it kind of goes onto the grass. At school, I try and park it in the Sandage lot that’s a little bit away because there’s not many people over there but I can squeeze it in some tight spaces if I have to.Kitchin: You said you like to keep your truck clean, so how do you manage to do that? Cooper: For the first semester of this year, I actually was washing it once a week at the house by hand and my roommates kept getting upset about the fact that the water bill kept increasing every month, so now I have to take it in every week and pay. It’s taken a little bit out of my bank account but other than that, I like to keep it clean and looking nice while it’s going down the road. I want it to be the best representation of Black Smoke Mafia that it can be.Kitchin: How’s the gas mileage? Cooper: Diesels actually get good gas mileage but all the modifications done to this truck have actually dampened the fuel mileage on it. It gets about seven to eight miles per gallon.Kitchin: What’s the most unique story about your truck? Cooper: It was actually given away as a prize to somebody. This truck was built by a company called DieselSellerz, they’re out of Utah. They are the biggest diesel company in the world and every three months, they do a giveaway and this was the first giveaway truck they ever did. It was given to a kid that lived 10 minutes away from where I lived back home. It actually had a lot of issues when he first got it and he didn’t want to deal with them, so I bought the truck off of him and I’ve been fixing and dealing with the issues. Ever since I saw the truck when he had won it, I had always wanted it because it’s my favorite looking truck and so when the opportunity arose that he was selling the truck, I jumped on it right away. I’ve just been trying to amp it up and make it better in every aspect and I’ve got more plans for it coming up too.Kitchin: What’s your favorite part about your truck?Cooper: I think the black and white theme of the truck is what I like most about it. I see a lot of these trucks; not a whole lot of them around, but the ones that I do see they don’t have this color scheme going. They usually either have like a red accent or some other color but a black and white theme isn’t very common.编辑触摸共享全屏制作你自己的了解更多接触图片分享图像…全屏Kitchin: How do want to see Black Smoke Mafia grow in the future? Cooper: If me and my friends were able to continue to grow this company and start doing more work as far as performance-wise, I would just make sure that my quality of work is good. + posts Brandon Kitchin Previous articleBeach Volleyball adds two signees to 2017 classNext articleDennison and Deaton honored as TCU’s Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week Brandon Kitchin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas.

She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Are housing costs more overwhelming in Canada or in the U.S.? A recent study by Point2Homes analyzed the evolution of the housing markets in these countries that share a border to assess their current status.For the study, Point2Homes extracted historical data on market trends and examined numbers from 2008 and 2018. They looked at key metrics including average home price, rent, homeownership rates, changes in the countries’ median incomes, and the countries’ evolution on the affordability scale for a side-by-side comparison.The study found that while the average home price in the U.S increased at a much slower rate of 24 percent, the average Canadian had to dish out 56 percent more to buy a home and 25 percent more to rent one. Median incomes for Canadians also rose at a slower pace than their U.S. counterparts at 15 percent, compared with 18 percent for American homebuyers.According to the study, a decade after the housing crisis in the U.S. some analysts have claimed that Canada faces a similar scenario where household debt currently exceeds 100 percent of GDP.Looking at historical U.S. housing data, the study found that in the U.S., homeownership rates reached a peak towards the end of 2004, when the percentage of homeowners settled at 69.2 percent, only to start decreasing in 2007. By 2015, the share of homeowners in the U.S. fell to 62.9 percent, a level that hasn’t been seen since 1965, when data gathering was just starting. After three years of recovery, the share of homeowners in the U.S. is currently pegged at 64.2 percent.Comparatively, homeownership rates in Canada rose at a steady pace for more than four decades hitting an all-time high of 69 percent in 2011, but the percentage has dipped to 67.8 percent following the economic downturn in the country from 2014. Despite these declines, home prices in Canada increased twice as fast as the U.S.”Due to a staggering 56 percent jump since 2008, Canada’s average home price went from $304,663 CAD to $475,591 CAD in just ten years,” the study revealed. “The U.S. market’s increases have been more contained: after a 24 percent increase, the average home price went from $245,200 in 2008 to $303,200 in 2018.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

College student arrested on campus with rifle, 2,000 rounds of ammunition

first_imgCollege of Southern Nevada(LAS VEGAS) — A Nevada college student was arrested on campus after police found a rifle and 2,000 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle.Shayn Striegel, a 27-year-old student at the College of Southern Nevada, was arrested and charged Wednesday evening after officers discovered the weapon while acting on a tip, the school said in a statement. Striegel, who had parked his vehicle on the college’s Henderson campus, told officers that he’d forgotten about the weapons.“Officers arrived and tracked down the student who had driven the car to campus. It was then determined that the student had a rifle and approximately 2,000 rounds of ammunition inside the vehicle,” the statement said. “Firearms are prohibited on Nevada System of Higher Education campuses, including those kept in parked vehicles.”The student was arrested at around 6 p.m and booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas. He was being held on a $2,000 bond on charges of possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.No one was hurt and there was no immediate threat to others on campus, the college said. Striegel is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.The school said the arrest highlighted the importance of the public reporting suspicious activity.“Although police do not believe that an ongoing threat exists to Henderson or any of our other campuses as a result of this incident, it is an important reminder of the effectiveness of the ‘see something, say something’ public safety campaign,” according to the statement. “If you see something suspicious, report it to the police immediately.”The discovery came just days after a North Carolina college student was arrested with ammunition and two firearms in his dorm room.The student, identified as High Point University freshman Paul Steber, allegedly told authorities that he was plotting to commit a mass shooting at his school, with plans on killing himself and his roommate.Police did not offer specific details about his plans, but prosecutors said Steber desperately wanted to pledge a fraternity and the plot hinged on whether or not he got into one.That case also came to light based on a tip from someone on campus.
