Photo: GEMN“We try to combine evangelism with social action,” said Bishop Moisés Quesada Mota in explaining the approach of Episcopalians in the Dominican Republic, one of the fastest-growing dioceses in The Episcopal Church. “We are a new humanity that Christ has shown in the church. We are the living gospel of Jesus Christ that has come to life in the church so we can take the message to others and show the light to people.”Quesada was speaking in a panel discussion at the 2019 Global Mission Conference that his diocese co-hosted with the Dominican Development Group, April 3-5, in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. Organized by the Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN), 120 people from all over The Episcopal Church were wrestling with the role of evangelism in the church’s global mission under the theme, “Sharing Jesus: Mutual Witness in Global Mission.” The bilingual conference included simultaneous interpretation between Spanish and English.“The gospel is a different news, a radical news,” said keynoter Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio of Cuba. “It is the news of knowing that each human being has a dimension inside of themselves that they cannot fulfill without God – the presence of God and the strength of the Holy Spirit. It is news that is different from the dominant culture, where people have so much anxiety and confusion without a horizon. The gospel is the horizon, the space where we are transformed fully. It is radical and coherent. It allows us to find happiness in our lives.”It took courage for Cuban Christians to witness to their faith in the ideological environment of communism after the Cuban revolution of 1959, Delgado said as she described the steady and multi-dimensional growth of The Episcopal Church in Cuba in recent decades. “We used to say ‘Cuba for Christ.’ Now we say, ‘Christ for the Cuban people,’” she noted in highlighting the church’s effort to integrate gospel proclamation with the social and economic needs of Cubans today.“While you are doing medical mission, economic development, gender empowerment, constantly seek, name and notice Jesus’s loving presence,” said keynoter the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and creation care. “Put your Jesus lenses on wherever you go. Whenever you see God, name and celebrate that, invite other people to celebrate with you, and let God do the rest.”“When we go into different cultures or spaces where Christianity is not the norm, if all we have is Christian superiority, that is not going to fly,” said Spellers. As she shared her own story of seeking “a love that does not disappoint,” she declared, “This is a story I can share with Muslims, with atheists. If you haven’t figured this out, take time to identify the difference Jesus has made in your life.”“People in South Carolina often say they are ‘highly favored,’” said Bishop William Skilton, former suffragan of the Diocese of South Carolina. “Part of our problem as a church is that we have stopped at being favored, and we haven’t tried being the flavor – the salt. You’ve forgotten your calling to become fishers of people and you’ve become aquarium keepers.” The mission conference was held at the Dominican diocese’s Bishop Skilton Conference Center, named in honor of his service as a missionary and, later, assistant bishop on the Caribbean island.The Rev. Anthony Guillén, director of ethnic ministries for The Episcopal Church, noted how simple greetings can be evangelistic: “When we ask, ‘How are you?’ in the U.S. the response is usually, fine, tired, busy, okay. In Latin culture, the response is always with ‘Gracias a Dios’ added, meaning, ‘Because of God, I am fine.’ There is already a consciousness of God in our lives, proclaimed unashamedly.”In addition to plenaries by keynoters Delgado and Spellers, an array of 18 workshops addressed outreach to under-evangelized people, gospel enculturation, the history of Anglican evangelism, digital evangelism, “The Way of Love” in global mission, missional encounter with Islam, mission and community at the upcoming Lambeth Conference in 2020, locally empowered economic mission, asset-based community development, interfaith reconciliation, Hispanic evangelism, missionary vocational discernment, and site-specific discussions of mission in the Sudans, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. The Rev. David Copley, director of the global partnerships unit at The Episcopal Church Center, updated conferees on the work of that group.“In GEMN’s 24 years of annual conferences, this is the first conference to focus specifically on evangelism,” said GEMN president Titus Presler. “With the growth of the world church and the intensifying focus on poverty alleviation, the world mission community sent evangelism to the back of the line. As the church as a whole is reviving its commitment to evangelism, we in GEMN feel it’s important to re-integrate evangelism with global mission.”Conference participants responded enthusiastically to what they heard. “So many of the mission teams that come down here to the Dominican Republic are afraid to talk about their faith,” said the Rev. Emilio Martin of the diocese, “but mission is based on faith.”“If you’re only doing actions and not words, you’re leaving out half the story,” said the Rev. Veronika Travis of St. Luke’s Church in Alexandria, Virginia. “We’re hamstringing ourselves if it’s only actions and not words.”“Evangelism isn’t a dirty word for me,” Anna Sutterish of the Diocese of Ohio, a senior at Bexley Seabury Seminary, said as she highlighted generational differences in Episcopal attitudes toward evangelism. “I’m 29 years old and I have no problem with evangelism.”Responding to the common question, “Isn’t evangelism disrespectful to non-Christians?” Spellers said, “It’s disrespectful to shove religion at people, to proselytize and denounce other pathways to God. But if you speak with generosity, curiosity and gratitude, then people respond more positively.”The conference concluded with visits to congregational and medical mission sites on the island. Patrons of conference receptions were Bexley Seabury Seminary, the Diocese of Connecticut and the Dominican Development Group.GEMN’s Mission Formation Program preceded the conference, this year enrolling a record 14 participants to spend a day exploring biblical foundations, mission theology, cultural dynamics and the practicalities of catalyzing mission vision and mutuality with companions around the world. The four participants graduating from the two-year program shared their projects: field research on indigenous religious rites in the Philippines; work on GEMN’s curriculum based on “The Way of Love”; exploring ways of enabling Honduran women to economically manage their monthly cycles without missing school or work; and a memoir about working in GEMN since its inception in 1994.The Global Episcopal Mission Network links dioceses, congregations, mission organizations, seminaries and individuals throughout the Episcopal Church to “proclaim, inspire and ignite the joy of God’s mission.” Global Episcopal Mission NetworkPosted Apr 12, 2019 Evangelism Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN Rector Albany, NY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Smithfield, NC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit an Event Listing Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Washington, DC Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Knoxville, TN last_img read more

Brisbane 1, South Brisbane, was strongly influenced by its siting on a triangular block and its relationship to the nearby Brisbane River. The architecture was informed by the imagining of a single stone mass, eroded by water to create three distinctive towers. Corners are marked by these sculptured forms, with figures intensified at each point of the triangle. The ambition to resolve the building’s complex shape is rewarded by long-range views which impart a shifting perspective and reveal, at distance, a crystalline form.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesThe subtle manipulation of the floor plate heightens the intensity of the building’s shape-shifting mass. Sun hoods add depth to the whole, bringing another layer of complexity and sense of movement to the façade. Strengthening the visual separation between each tower, a verdant communal garden takes seed at podium level. It provides an outdoor gathering space with climatic and visual relief. Overhanging gardens offer passers-by a glimpse of this natural oasis, bringing a sense of theatre to the streetscape. At rooftop level, additional social spaces reveal new perspectives of the River city.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesSave this picture!Level 7Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesBrisbane 1 pursues an agenda to create a socially and environmentally sustainable development by creating a place that fulfils the needs of its residents and respects its surrounds. Environmental sustainability is achieved through the adoption of passive design strategies; optimising solar orientation, facilitating natural ventilation and maximising outlook. These provide a superior level of occupant amenity while reducing carbon emissions by minimising reliance on artificial lighting and mechanical cooling. Broader scale environmental strategies include the installation of Stormwater Quality Treatment Devices in order to safeguard the Brisbane River from potential pollution of the water system. Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesA challenge of the architecture was achieving a project of high density which addressed the needs of a subtropical city and fulfilled our client’s ambitions. This called for a rigorous testing of mass, form and planning and a deep understanding of the nuances of Brisbane’s climate, context and living culture to balance commercial needs and long-term liveability. Brisbane 1 delivers on its subtropical agenda; providing plentiful light, air and outlook while aspiring to further the conversation about appropriate ways to densify our city.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesProject gallerySee allShow lessCaptain’s Residence / i2a Architects StudioSelected ProjectsThe Nắng Suites / o9 Design StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:South Brisbane QLD 4101, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

This facility will drive diversity in the local workforce and help stimulate economic growth. Donnelly wrote a letter in support of Ivy Tech Wabash Valley’s application to the U.S. Department of Commerce.Donnelly said, “With the Precision Agricultural Equipment Technology Center of Excellence at Ivy Tech Wabash Valley, Hoosier students will gain access to skills and training needed to find a good paying job in the agriculture industry. I was proud to support Ivy Tech Wabash Valley’s application and I’m pleased they are receiving this grant. I look forward to seeing many Hoosier students take advantage of this opportunity to build a career in agriculture.”Jonathan Weinzapfel, Chancellor of Ivy Tech Wabash Valley/Southwest regions, said, “The EDA grant will allow Ivy Tech Community College Wabash Valley to renovate property already owned by Ivy Tech at the southern Vigo County Industrial Park, for use by the Precision Agriculture Equipment Technology Program Center of Excellence. Precision Ag will provide training in geospatial technology related to crop planting, fertilization, harvesting, and other farming operations. With these skills, the project will strengthen Indiana’s position as a global leader in workforce development, job creation, and workplace advancement for the agriculture industry.“We are so grateful for Sen. Donnelly’s support of this project. Through his leadership and assistance, the economic impact of this project will not only create jobs, but also aid employers by providing skills to individuals who previously may have only received on-the-job training.”According to a recent study from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, agricultural business in Indiana contributes to more than $44 billion to the state’s economy each year and supports nearly 190,000 Hoosier jobs. In preparation for offering this field of study, Ivy Tech Wabash Valley has sought guidance and support from a number of manufacturing and production leaders from the agriculture industry as well as local farmers and economic development professionals. The Center will provide students with the necessary trainings and skills to support agriculture career readiness. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Apr 17, 2017 last_img read more

Impunity condemned on second anniversary of Kurdish journalist’s murder

A Reporters Without Borders representative who is currently on a fact-finding visit to Iraqi Kurdistan took part in the demonstration.The journalists and Mama’s relatives accused the local authorities of showing no interest in shedding any light on his murder.The gathering was addressed by Ahmed Mira, the editor of Lvin (the independent newspaper for which Mama worked); Rabin Herbi, a well-known intellectual; Defaw Hamid, a journalist; Abdul Samad Jabar, a member of Mama’s family; and Judit Neurink, the head of the Independent Kurdish Media Centre.The family of recently-slain journalist Sardasht Osman also attended. Osman was kidnapped on 4 May in Erbil and was found dead two days later in Mosul (http://en.rsf.org/irak-second-journalist-killed-in-iraqi-06-05-2010,3739…).Mama, 23, was gunned down outside his home in Rasheed Awa, a northern suburb of Kirkuk, on the evening of 21 July 2008. Colleagues said he had received death threats in connection with articles he had written on sensitive subjects.A total of 66 Kurdish journalists signed a petition to the Kurdish authorities condemning his murder shortly after it took place, while an editorial in Lvin urged the regional government to accept that it had a duty to ensure that it did not go unpunished.An independent fortnightly created in 2001, Lvin often carries stories about local corruption. The last issue published before Mama’s murder included an article by him implicating Kurdish officials in several prostitution cases.

French newspaper correspondent finally cleared of libel after 10 years

first_img Follow the news on Algeria Organisation AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders hails the acquittal today of Arezki Aït-Larbi, the Algeria correspondent of the French dailies Le Figaro and Ouest-France, in a libel suit brought against him in 1997 by Abdelkader Sallat, former director of prisons at the justice ministry. He won the right to a retrial, which began on 23 May, because the original trial was held in his absence and without his knowledge.After the announcement of the verdict, Aït-Larbi issued a statement calling on the justice minister to launch “an administrative investigation to establish who was responsible for these procedural irregularities and exploitation of the judicial apparatus with clan-based complicities for 10 years.” Alluding to his article about mistreatment in Algerian prisons, which prompted the libel suit, he also called for “a judicial investigation” into the “crimes against humanity… revealed during the trial.”————————————————————29.05 – Judges urged to protect independent journalists as government makes no move to decriminalize press offencesReporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the two-month prison sentences imposed on two El Watan journalists in a libel case on 27 May and said it was concerned about the verdict that is due to be issued by an Algiers criminal court tomorrow in the case of Arezki Aït-Larbi, the correspondent of several international news media. “Algeria’s journalists will always work under the threat of being thrown in prison until press offences are decriminalized, and since the highest authorities continue to drag their heels on amending the law, we appeal to judges handling press cases to display courage and independence by protecting journalists and reestablishing the right to news and information.”The two El Watan journalists sentenced to two months in prison were editor Omar Belhouchet and reporter Chawki Amari, who were also fined 1 million dinars (10,635 euros). They immediately appealed against the verdict. The case was a retrial of one held before a court in Jijel, 360 km east of Algiers last December, when they received three-month sentences for libelling and insulting the city’s prefect in an article a few months earlier accusing him of corruption. They were able to get retrial because the original trial was held in their absence and without their knowledge, and they were not even notified of the prefect’s suit.According to their lawyer, Zoubeir Soudani, the case continued to suffer from procedural irregularities. He also deplored a recent supreme court decision that allows plaintiffs who are suing newspapers to present their suit at the place of distribution as well as the place of publication.Jamal Belkadi, one of El Watan’s correspondents in Constantine, 290 km east of Algiers, was manhandled by the head of the prefect’s security department while taking photos at the scene of a bombing on 16 May. His camera was confiscated and returned two days later. To his surprise, he was summoned to the prefect’s office and was notified that he is being investigated for “crossing a security perimeter.” He is due to appear before a judge soon. Other journalists present at the scene of the bombing had no problems.The case involving Aït-Larbi, the correspondent of the French dailies Le Figaro and Ouest-France, is also retrial of one held in his absence and without his knowledge. It concerns a libel suit brought by a prison governor whom he accused of mistreating detainees in a 1994 article. Aït-Larbi did not discover that he had been convicted until May 2006, when he applied for a new passport and his request was initially refused. In April of this year, he found himself being arrested at Algiers airport under a warrant issued in 1997.
