The Designers should review the standards for buildings in southern California and southern Florida as part of the design process.Tom Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Peter Rice says: Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET December 12, 2012 at 9:35 pm There’s an argument in opposition to the design and construction of a cathedral in Port-au-prince. It simply objects to the investment of ??? millions of dollars for the recreation of an example of the Episcopal Church style. In stead of bricks and mortar the argument supposes donations to the “historic correctness” of the beauty of the institution that the funds be invested in agriculture, industrial and small business capital for the growing of the economy and culture. The church is not the building … it is the service to the people that the church provides that sets it aside from the ordinary. That service illustrates the presence of God’s salvation here and now. Feed the hungry, treat the sick and relive the oppression of poverty and ignorance–than the people of Haiti will understand through participation the meaning of the Kingdom of God.

The hope of the Haitian people, our brothers and sisters in Christ, is in their children. Historically the Diocese has not adequately supported the schools outside of the Capitol region. Those schools are supported largely by U.S. Episcopal partner schools and parishes in combination with local parents. Build the new Cathedral AFTER the schools are restored and an adequate ongoing support structure within the Diocese has been established and funded for the more than 250 Haitian Episcopal schools. Rector Martinsville, VA December 17, 2012 at 8:18 am Please, decent housing for those still in tents, then schools, THEN a fine new cathedral.

An extensive number of private and public buildings were destroyed including Holy Trinity Cathedral and the affiliated Episcopal institutions in the Cathedral Complex in Port-au-Prince.The Project Team made its recommendation following a yearlong strategic process. The members of the project team are diocese of Haiti officials: Bishop Jean Zaché Duracin; Sikhumbuzo Vundla, chief of operations; the Rev. Joseph Constant, special coordinator; and the Rev. John Runkle, RA, consulting project manager.“Faced with the enormity of rebuilding most of its churches, schools and other structures throughout the earthquake ravaged region, the Diocese of Haiti decided to concentrate its initial efforts on rebuilding Holy Trinity Cathedral as a prominent landmark of God’s abiding presence with the Haitian people and the church’s commitment to serve them,” Duracin said. “The new cathedral will be a beacon of hope to all who suffer.”“The project team agreed Kerns Group is the architectural firm that will best embody the vision for a new Cathedral that reflects the history and culture of the Haitian people,” said Constant. “Kerns Group bring years of extensive experience designing new churches, including a number of notable Episcopal Churches, throughout much of the United States. And with the Episcopal Church, they also share a profound sense of mission to the people of Haiti that will result in a cathedral unique to the church there.”“This marks an important milestone in the effort to rebuild our church in Haiti,” said Bishop Stacy Sauls, Episcopal Church chief operating officer. “It has come about because of the hard work of many people from the Diocese of Haiti, the Church Center, and beyond. It has come about in no small part due to the generosity of thousands of Episcopalians from across our church who have given to rebuild the Holy Trinity Cathedral. I want to especially thank Albert E. Phillips and Laura Thomas of the Atlanta law firm of Cohen, Pollock, Merlin & Small for their tireless dedication and extreme generosity in getting us to this point.”The new cathedral will be designed to respect and celebrate the characteristics of the Episcopal Church in Haiti, the Haitian people and their culture. The worship space will be larger than the previous cathedral and will provide the flexibility to accommodate larger congregations. It will incorporate the three, surviving, world-renowned, painted murals, of the original 14 that adorned the interior of the destroyed cathedral. Its structure will comply with international seismic and hurricane building code standards. The building will be constructed to serve as a place of refuge in the event of future emergency situations.For more information on supporting the fundraising effort here. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL December 12, 2012 at 11:07 pm Fr. Jay has an important point, but I fear it is lost to the decision makers in Haiti. Fr. Jay has a modern approach to ministry – focused on the mission to the people and not on appearance. But the church in Haiti, in my experience, is focused on medieval methods of evangelism, where the building of a large church was enough to bring the populace into the fold. Haitians are well aware of “bondie” but not of His word or teachings. What brings them in is attention to their needs – food, education, health care, etc.. It amazes me that the American church has gotten behind the plan put forward by the Haitian church when they well understand what really works. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Comments (6) Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN Curate Diocese of Nebraska May 26, 2014 at 10:57 pm To everything there is a season:A time to build a cathedral and a time to build homes and businesses;A time for the Christian community to gather for worship, sacrament, learning, and fellowship, and a time for that community to go forth to serve by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and empowering the weak to become strong;A time to lift up art and encourage artistic expression, and a time to enjoy the results as we see the myriad ways people grow intellectually and spiritually as the community blossoms in so many surprising ways..The rabbis of old times had an expression: “Where there is no wine, there is no joy.”Where there is no good architecture, no profound storytelling, no drawing or painting, no good music, no drama, no good design, you have no imagination, no creative problem solving, no three dimensional understanding of new learning, and no powerful spirituality.It is not a question of either/or but of both/and. A great cathedral facility under responsible leadership will not detract from ministry but become the Lord’s instrument to energize and continually enhance it. It is not of secondary importance in the scheme of things, it is primary. Rector Shreveport, LA Thomas R.

Subsidies wanted for LIAT as REDjet spreads wings

first_img 27 Views   no discussions Tweet Share Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img Share LifestyleTravel Subsidies wanted for LIAT as REDjet spreads wings by: – July 20, 2011 Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer, whose government is one of LIAT’s major shareholders, is urging his Caribbean neighbours to begin subsidizing the airline to fly to their countries as new budget carrier REDjet continues to make advances on the routes currently operated by LIAT.His plea comes as the Barbados-based REDjet finally gets approval to fly to and from Trinidad and Tobago and awaits official approval from Jamaica which has also given it clearance. This is in addition to the Barbados-Guyana route the airline currently operates.Prime Minister Spencer said some Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Member States have benefitted tremendously from the airline’s operations and “cannot do without LIAT, but yet they find it difficult to lend support to LIAT”.He said just as countries subsidise international carriers, they should extend the same assistance to the Antigua-based LIAT.LIAT, in which Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are the majority shareholders, has been accused of keeping the cost of regional travel too high, but it has always insisted that taxes have made it difficult to offer lower fares.The no-frills REDjet, however, has been offering fares as low as US$9.99 before taxes and 37,000 seats went on sale at that price yesterday.Speaking on the ‘Focus’ programme on local radio station, Crusader Radio, Prime Minister Spencer said while Antigua & Barbuda will consider any proposition made by REDjet, it will remain committed to LIAT.“Clearly, it will be competition and we are not necessarily against competition as we have always said,” he said.“What we are against are predatory prices and mechanisms that would definitely affect LIAT and its operations…We will look at it but our interest is to ensure that LIAT is able to survive.”REDjet has been in discussion with several other Eastern Caribbean countries, including Grenada and St. Kitts and Nevis, on starting services to those countries, but no decisions have yet been made.Caribbean 360 Newslast_img read more

Football: Bernardo Silva comes under fire from anti-racism charity over Mendy tweet

Matt Calvert injury update: Colorado Avalanche forward out indefinitely

first_imgColorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar told reporters Monday that Matt Calvert will be out indefinitely after he was hit in the head with a puck during Saturday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks.According to the team, Calvert is going through concussion protocol but has not yet been diagnosed with a concussion since Elias Pettersson’s shot struck him in the helmet. MORE: NHL players critical of Avalanche-Canucks officials for handling of Matt Calvert injuryThe blow left the 29-year-old forward sprawled on the ice and unable to stand in Colorado’s defensive zone Saturday with just minutes to play, but on-ice officials did not blow the whistle so he could be attended to by medical staff because the Canucks still had possession of the puck. Vancouver scored 13 seconds after Calvert was struck by the puck, which prompted several players to complain about player safety after the game.This is honestly terrible pic.twitter.com/WUXN79tawo— DNVR Avalanche (@DNVR_Avalanche) November 17, 2019Calvert joins forwards Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog and goaltender Philipp Grubauer on the team’s injury list, which now sits at six players.

Sammy scores her first US win

first_img Tags: England teams, Roehampton Golf Club, Sammy Fuller, USA college golf, Women’s Golf 21 Sep 2018 Sammy scores her first US win England international Sammy Fuller has just won her first tournament on the US women’s college circuit, less than a year after she had a kidney removed.Fuller, a student at Keiser University in Florida, shot four-under par over three rounds on the Palmer course at PGA National and won by 12 shots.The 19-year-old from Roehampton, Surrey, established a three-shot lead over the first 36 holes and finished with a bogey-free round of three under.“This was a great achievement for Sammy, especially after having a kidney removed earlier this year,” commented her father, Ashley.The PGA National has always been a good hunting ground for Fuller who won five straight Honda Junior Classics there.She has recently returned to her US university after a successful summer’s golf when her results included finishing runner-up in the English women’s match play championship. Fuller, who first played for England as a 14-year-old, was on duty this summer in the Women’s Home Internationals.Image copyright Leaderboard Photographylast_img read more

Smile

first_imgBy Kathy MieleI walked into the living room where all of my guys were hanging out on the couch. I held up my camera and said, “Smile!”“Whoa…” Alex held his hand over his face. “What are you doing?”“I’m trying to get some candid shots of the three of you,” I explained.“Walking into a room shouting ‘Smile’ isn’t candid,” Steven reminded me.“Fine.” I snapped a quick shot of them.“Come on!” Max cried.I hit review on my camera. “Well, that was an awful picture,” I said as I pressed the delete button.“Why the interest in candid shots all of a sudden?” Steven asked.“I’m glad you asked.” I pointed to the table next to the couch that was filled with framed photos of the boys. “Haven’t you noticed that all the photos we have around the house are when the boys weren’t even in their teens yet?”Steven picked up a picture of both boys on the play gym of our old house. Their heads were sticking out between the slats of the tower. “What were they, 4 and 8 in this shot?”“Exactly!” I said. “If someone came into our house right now they’d think we have little kids. Not two guys in their 20s.”“Who’s coming into our house that wouldn’t know who we are?” Alex asked.“Good point,” Steven said.“That’s not the point,” I countered. “What’s wrong with wanting to have some updated photos around the house?”“Ah, I can find something wrong with it,” Max said.“What?”“We’d have to spend hours posing for pictures,” he said. “You know how you get when you start picture-taking.”All three began to laugh.“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked.The boys looked at Steven, making him the spokesperson for all three. “You start yelling,” he reminded me. “Smile! Look this way! Quit making that face!” The boys were nodding in agreement. “That’s the reason we stopped taking pictures, don’t you remember?” he asked.By this time I’d put the camera down on the table and Max had picked it up. He snapped a shot of me with my hands on my hips looking annoyed as I listened to Steven explain why we don’t take photos anymore.“Hey! Give me that!” I tried to get the camera out of Max’s hand but he’d already hit the review button and was showing Alex and Steven the shot. “That’s a keeper,” he said as he handed it back to me.I cringed as I took a quick peek before hitting delete. “Fine, I won’t take any pictures today,” I agreed. “But this isn’t over.”The three of them were high-fiving each other as I left the room. I quickly turned around and snapped the picture. “Perfect!” I said. “Now I have a picture with a fun story behind it!”last_img read more

Experience Cortland GeoTour (GT21)

first_imgECGT – Hannah’s Stump GC4320Y“Say yes or I jump!” Those could have been Hannah’s last words, but they weren’t. Isaac Bloomer dropped to his knee below the precipice over which Hannah’s stump leaned. Right then and there Isaac proposed marriage to save the poor girl’s life. At least that’s how the early 19th-century tale goes, and it very well may be true. Town records show that Hannah Towbridge of Gridley Hollow and Isaac Bloomer were married and likely lived an abundant pioneer farm life. Twentieth century locals embraced and reported the legend of Hannah’s Stump, as well as the good berry picking and camping that could be found at the base of the cliff and adjunct to the winding road and stream. The road was eventually straightened and the physical location of Hannah’s stump vanished to progress. Regardless, if a geocacher looks upstream through the new bridge and to the stone embankment, one might conjure up the essence of Hannah’s Stump.Hannah’s StumpECGT – Last One Room Schoolhouse GC433R1This scenic hamlet includes the original home of The Glen Haven School and Public Library. In the early days, a large resort hotel attracted visitors arriving on the southern end of Skaneateles Lake by steamboat.  The school was the last functioning one-room schoolhouse in Cortland County. Down the road and nearby this geocache one can find the Fair Haven Marina, the Glen Haven Inn, and some excellent fishing. Grout Brook, which flows into the south end of Skaneateles Lake, is a premier rainbow trout fishing spot, especially in early spring when trout head upstream to spawn. Bring a canoe, fishing pole, your curiosity, and perhaps dinner money to enjoy this “secret” hideaway.Last One Room SchoolhouseECGT – Field of Dreams GC43D18This geocache locale shares views of the town ball field, the local cemetery, old Route 26, town hall, and the vacant spot that was once the legendary landmark Brown Beaver Inn. Excellent fishing can be found nearby on the Otselic River. The Willet Ball Field grandstand was built in the early 1940s from salvaged lumber from the old icehouse at the former Reed Ice Cream Plant. The hunt for this geocache required climbing the actual grandstand. Field of DreamsECGT – The Crossroads GC5VDTKThe Crossroads is the location of the Town Hall, a lovely park with picnic tables, a basketball court, and a perfect old time swimming hole. Bring your swim gear (or not).Amish farmers can be seen on a summer day working the fields the way the original settlers would. They are the most recent immigrants to the area and are commonly seen riding their horses and buggies. If it’s laundry day, a drive down the road past one Amish farm will yield a wonderful display of dungarees of all sizes arranged by size on an endless clothesline.PrizesFind all 20 caches, fill in your map, and you earn an official Experience Cortland GeoTour hat and Cortland County pin!What geocachers are sayingWe knew so little of this region before the GeoTour, but now we feel like we’ve been in every nook and cranny of Cortland County. This GeoTour exposed us to the beauty of this part of New York State and the Finger Lakes Region. — ajlepelLoved the story surrounding the location and the container was brilliant. Great use of the space and resources. — Fur007Traveled to Cortland County do the Geotour. We really enjoyed this series and due to all of them being quick stop and grabs it was a great thing to do for the kids. It took us about 8 hours but that was our time with stops for visits, food, and gas along with a few other caches in the area. Due to us being there on a Sunday, most places to visit were closed but it also made for a very quiet/relaxing day. — 0;)Angel SharePrint RelatedInside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 15): GeoToursJune 18, 2018In “Community”Cache 4 Coins GeoTour (GT6B)May 3, 2018In “GeoTours”West Bend Four Seasons GeoTourSeptember 18, 2015In “GeoTours” The Experience Cortland GeoTour started in 2012 and is still popular among geocachers today.
