Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] The Episcopal Church Executive Council Nov. 15 began its ministry of leadership for the 2016-2018 triennium being called to lead the Jesus Movement and help the church to stretch and change to meet the challenges it faces.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry recalled for the council the feeling of accomplishment and direction when General Convention ended in Salt Lake City on July 3. “There was a sense coming out of the convention that we just did something that mattered,” he said in his opening remarks. “I think there was common vision, common sense of mission.”He called it a clarion call and “we all heard it and we heard it together.”Evangelism, racial reconciliation and the Jesus Movement are names that have been given to that call, Curry said. And it is a call that “gives us just an enormous opportunity as the Executive Council of the church, as its board if you will, to join together in providing some leadership and shared leadership in following Jesus.“It gives us clarity and clarity makes all the difference in the world. At least you know where you are going even if the storms are around you; [and] have a sense of here’s where we’re going together.”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches Nov. 15 during Eucharist at the opening session of The Episcopal Church Executive Council’s Nov. 15-18 meeting at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Council members Alexizendria Link of the Diocese Western Massachusetts and Steven Nishibayashi of the Diocese of Los Angeles are in the background. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceCurry told the council he wants to expand on that clarity in two ways. First, between now and council’s Feb. 26-28 meeting, he said he will work with his staff to propose a design for how all the parts of the staff and the council will work together, “how we work together, how our diverse parts might work together going forward in the work of evangelism and racial reconciliation, and in all we do.”The presiding bishop also said he wants to appoint a third canon in addition to the Rev. Michael Hunn and the Rev. Charles Robertson who were appointed as canon to the presiding bishop for ministry within The Episcopal Church and canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church, respectively. The third canon would be responsible for carrying out what he called the direct ministry of the presiding bishop in the work of evangelism and racial reconciliation, working together with both the churchwide staff and wider community.Citing Curry’s leadership as presiding bishop, the General Convention’s commitment to evangelism and racial reconciliation, its reorganization of the budget and a change in the way dioceses fund churchwide work, the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, said, “The stage is set this triennium for us to participate more clearly, more fully, more wholeheartedly in God’s mission for The Episcopal Church.”However, she said in her opening remarks, the church needs “some remedial discernment work” in which it “think[s] again about God’s mission for The Episcopal Church in our time.” Research done by Matthew Price, vice president of research and data for the Church Pension Fund, shows that of congregations that had one clergy person in 2006, 30% had no clergy person in 2013, she noted. “So if the old model of a dedicated building with a full-time priest is required for us to do God’s mission, we’re in trouble,” Jennings warned.House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings breaks the bread Nov. 15 during Eucharist at the opening session of The Episcopal Church Executive Council’s Nov. 15-18 meeting at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Jennings was assisted by council member the Rev. Frank Logue. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceJennings also said research shows that between 2006 and 2013, congregations experienced a 7 percent decline in operating revenue, an 8 percent decline in pledge income, and an 11 percent decline in pledge cards but no decline in clergy compensation amounts. Spending a higher proportion of the church’s resources on clergy pay than in the past is not sustainable, she warned.Thus The Episcopal Church finds itself “crossing some new threshold we had never anticipated,” in the words of poet John O’Donohue, Jennings said. And, she said, there are two ways to think about that sort of change.“If we think about crossing the threshold as guardians of the institution of the church, pretty much everything looks like loss and decline,” she said. “It’s depressing to think about change in the church this way, and I don’t recommend it. And it doesn’t really seem like the path to discerning God’s mission.”Instead, she urged council to stand on the threshold “as people who are secure in our identity as children of God in The Episcopal Church.”“The world might swirl around us, but we know who we are, and we can stretch our identity to accommodate the changes we need to make,” she said. “God knows who we are as the people of God in The Episcopal Church, and God knows it’s not about buildings or full-time clergy or social status or endowments. And because God knows those things, I believe God has a new mission for us.”The Nov. 15-18 meeting is taking place at the Maritime Institute Conference Center.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop, the president of the House of Deputies and the vice president of the House of Deputies.– The Rev.

Executive Council called on to reflect on the future of…

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Midwest City, Oklahoma] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president, placed the future of faith and the church as an institution, and the shape of the Episcopal Church’s relationship with the Anglican Communion, before the Executive Council as it opened its four-day meeting here.Curry framed his opening remarks around his experience the prior week when visiting the Anglican Church of Southern Africa. While there, a young Anglican asked him if there was a future for the church.“I realized he was asking if there is a future for faith,” Curry said. “Therefore, does the church, the community of people who have faith in Jesus, have a future? That may be one of the most critical questions before us in our time.”The question applies to all faith communities, not just Episcopal ones, or even solely Christian ones, he said.Jennings devoted most of her opening remarks to Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s decision not to invite same-sex spouses to the 2020 Lambeth Conference of bishops. She asked whether “there is still time to resolve this situation and ensure that all bishops’ spouses will be invited to the Lambeth Conference.”Jennings said, if the communion is “not yet able to hold a global meeting of Anglican bishops and spouses to which everyone is invited, then I think we should not be holding global meetings of Anglican bishops and spouses.”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry poses a question to council members: Is there a future for faith? Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceDo faith and faith communities have a future?In answer to the question of the church’s future, Curry told the young man, “Faith does not have a future if faith and religion is seen and understood primarily and essentially as an institutional arrangement.“Faith will not have a future if we believe that the church is primarily an institution which we must prop it up to keep it going,” Curry said. “I say that as a 65-year-old man who, when he finishes his term as presiding bishop, will then go on the Church Pension Fund. I’m not anti-institutional.”The sorts of questions the young man asked, Curry said, are not calling on the church to enact another strategic plan, but to dare “to ask the spirit, ‘Where shall we go?’”Curry reminded the council that the Christian church has “only been an institution periodically; it began as a nascent Jesus Movement.” In later centuries, Curry said, it became an institution that crowned emperors, only to be divided by theological schisms and reformations. The church has moved from the established churches of the majority to “a fragile minority.”The way of love exemplified by Jesus is not just the way of love for the world, Curry said. It can be the way of life for the church if it can witness to that way of love. “When we are less than that, then we ought to die because we have nothing to give the world,” he said.The presiding bishop insisted that the Holy Spirit was inspiring the members of council “to think, to pray, to listen to what the spirit is saying to our church and to find our life.”Curry said, “We may not have easy days ahead of us, but that’s all right. Our Lord was crucified; Pilate thought he killed him – thought he was down for the count – but on Sunday morning, the brother got up and that’s who we follow. If we follow his way of love, then the gates of hell will not prevail against us.”Council gave Curry a standing ovation when he concluded.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president and Executive Council vice chair, told council that she hopes there is time to ensure that all bishops’ spouses will be invited to the 2020 Lambeth Conference. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceRaising the Lambeth questionAnglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon wrote in a Feb. 15 Anglican Communion News Service blog that Welby had invited “every active bishop” because “that is how it should be – we are recognizing that all those consecrated into the office of bishop should be able to attend.“But the invitation process has also needed to take account of the Anglican Communion’s position on marriage which is that it is the lifelong union of a man and a woman,” Idowu-Fearon wrote. “That is the position as set out in Resolution I.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference. Given this, it would be inappropriate for same-sex spouses to be invited to the conference.”Resolution I.10 was passed by the conference in 1998 after heated debate.Jennings said that Idowu-Fearon’s post promulgated “a misconception about the Anglican Communion’s governance” by claiming that the Anglican Communion’s position on marriage is defined by that resolution.She said that among the communion’s four Instruments of Communion – the archbishop of Canterbury, the Lambeth Conference, the Primates’ Meeting and the Anglican Consultative Council, or ACC – only the ACC is seen as the corporate entity of the Anglican Communion by the instruments’ governing documents and British law. Thus, Jennings said, setting policy is the ACC’s job.She also noted that the resolution’s reference to marriage as a “lifelong union” seems not to pertain to the opposite-sex spouses of bishops who have been divorced and remarried but are still invited to Lambeth. “We are left to conclude that excluding same-sex spouses is a selective decision – perhaps even an arbitrary one,” she said.Jennings suggested that, if the communion cannot resolve to invite all of the bishops’ spouses, “I think that the day is coming when we will need to take a hard look at where and how we invest the resources of The Episcopal Church across the Anglican Communion.”The House of Deputies president did not elaborate, and she cautioned that her stance “is not at all the same thing as saying that we should not be in relationship with the rest of the Anglican Communion.”The Episcopal Church’s 2019-2021 budget pledges $1.15 million to the work of the Anglican Communion office (line 416 here) plus an additional $538,000 in block grants to other communion provinces. The budget also shows nearly $2.3 million in staff costs in the Anglican Communion budget lines, but that money covers members of The Episcopal Church staff who work with partners and program across the communion.Echoing Curry’s distinction between a church’s institutional structures and the local incarnation of its mission, Jennings said her travels across the communion have shown her the communion “not as a series of dictates from archbishops or an office in London, but as life-giving, life-saving, mutual relationships rooted in dioceses, congregations and networks across the world.“That is the Anglican Communion that deserves our energy and attention, our commitment and our resources,” she said.The impact of Welby’s decisionWelby’s refusal currently effects two bishops and one bishop-elect in the Anglican Communion. Diocese of New York Bishop Assistant Mary Glasspool is currently The Episcopal Church’s one actively serving bishop who has a same-sex spouse. She is married to Becki Sander, her partner of more than 30 years.The Rev. Thomas Brown is due to be ordained and consecrated on June 22 as the next bishop of the Diocese of Maine. He is married to the Rev. Thomas Mousin. The diocese elected Brown on Feb. 9. His election is about to enter the consent process canonically required in all bishop elections.The only other active bishop in the Anglican Communion to whom Welby’s decision applies is Diocese of Toronto Bishop Suffragan Kevin Robertson, who married Mohan Sharma, his partner of nearly 10 years, on Dec. 28, 2018. The diocese congratulated him on his marriage, which was attended by Toronto Archbishop Colin Johnson and Toronto Bishop Diocesan Andrew Asbil. Robertson recently told Episcopal News Service that Welby told him in person earlier this month that Sharma would not be invited. Robertson and Sharma are the parents of two young children.“I cannot overlook the fact that the Anglican Communion Office has created a public situation in which two children are learning that the hierarchy of the church considers their family to be a source of shame and worthy of exclusion,” Jennings said. “That makes me very angry. When little children are collateral damage, that is not the way of love.”After Jennings concluded, she received a standing ovation from council and Curry replied, “Thank you, Madam President. Amen.”Also on the meeting’s first day* Executive Council also heard a report from Treasurer Kurt Barnes that showed the church ended the 2016-2018 triennium with between $5 million and $6 million more in income than it had in expenses, due in large part to the startup of some programs that was delayed to the current triennium. The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s investment portfolio was down just more than six percent in 2018, Barnes reported, noting that the year was hard on all investments. Saying that the DFMS (the church’s corporate and legal entity) “will always look at the long term,” Barnes said the approximately $40 million investment portfolio’s 10-year annual average is 9.7 percent after fees and expenses.The portfolio recovered 6 percent in January. “We just hope and pray that it continues for the remainder of this year,” said Barnes, noting that growth this year impacts the amount of money available to the church two years from now, because of the way the budget’s draw on investment income is calculated. Council member Diane Pollard cautioned that some investors fear that January’s investment markets performance was “kind of like Disneyland” and will not be sustained.“In college I learned that Darwin only used survival of the fittest once or twice, but referred more to empathy and survival is greatest among those who place communal interest first.” Treasurer Kurt Barnes on Episcopal Church support for the Diocese of Cuba #excoun pic.twitter.com/8bQSgRkYY9— Frank Logue (@franklogue) February 21, 2019Barnes also told the council that the sale of a city block in Austin, Texas, that it had hoped would be the site of a new Archives of the Episcopal Church netted “on the order of $20 million” after paying off the debt on the land. The church is bound by a confidentiality agreement, typical for transactions of this type and magnitude, with the buyers to not yet disclose the purchase price.Diocese of Utah Bishop Scott Hayashi, an Executive Council member, provides music on Feb. 21 for the singing of “I want to walk as a child of the light” during Morning Prayer. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe rest of the meetingAfter the opening plenary on Feb. 21, council spent the rest of the day meeting in its four committees. The same will be true the morning of Feb. 22. Later that day, council members will visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. The memorial and museum commemorate the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building by Timothy McVeigh, an act of domestic terrorism that killed 168 people and injured 600 others.Committee meetings will take up the morning of Feb. 23, and members will return to a plenary session that afternoon during which the committees will begin their reports to the full body, proposing resolutions for the full body to consider. The members will travel to St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Oklahoma City for Eucharist the morning of Feb. 24. The council will conclude its meeting that afternoon.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council comprises 38 members – 20 (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 laypeople) elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have a seat and a voice but no vote.Some council members are tweeting from the meeting using #ExCoun.The Feb. 21-24 meeting is taking place at the Sheraton Midwest City Hotel at the Reed Conference Center.– The Rev.

Each beams slant is in a northward direction to support the roof that has enough pitch to handle the rainy weather and differentiate the ceiling height.Together with the tilted ground, this gives the spatial “variation” that complex life requires.Save this picture!© Kenichi SuzukiAs you see, the features of this site (geomorphic characteristics, amount of rain) add a special “geometry” to this architecture.It determines the structure and the resulting dwelling space and brings harmony amongst them.
Save this picture!SectionIf you, as the origin of the word indicates, decide the order of an architecture (=geometry) by taking a close survey (=metria) of the land (=geo), the consequent architecture will have clear order while retaining the continuity of the land.
“Observing the site closely and finding its hidden geometry.”
That accounts for almost all of our design works and, is essence of it.Project gallerySee allShow lessIn Discussion: Peter Zumthor Speaks with Michael Govan About the LACMA RedesignArticlesShould Architects Follow a Code of Ethics?Architecture News Share Architects: Mount Fuji Architects Studio Area Area of this architecture project Projects Area:  123 m² Area:  123 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Japan Geo Metria / Mount Fuji Architects StudioSave this projectSaveGeo Metria / Mount Fuji Architects Studio ArchDaily Save this picture!© Kenichi Suzuki+ 28 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/385658/geo-metria-mount-fuji-architects-studio Clipboard Year:  Geo Metria / Mount Fuji Architects Studio CopyAbout this officeMount Fuji Architects StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on June 11, 2013Cite: “Geo Metria / Mount Fuji Architects Studio” 11 Jun 2013.

Today is still labor day

first_imgHotel workers, Sept. 3The official “Labor Day” has now passed in the U.S.But guess what? Today is still “labor day” – as is every day.Because against the shark-teeth of capitalism, workers are still in the fight of our lives for wages we can live and thrive on, for health benefits and housing we can afford, for jobs that don’t break us down but give us satisfaction and respect.A militant, independent, rank-and-file labor movement in the U.S. is mandatory to wage this struggle successfully. It’s crucial that workers not fall for either the bait or the crumbs thrown out by bosses or bourgeois politicians.For instance, the “official” Labor Day in September: Did you know that the federal government put that in place in 1894 to defang a rising, militant workers’ movement that celebrated its “labor day” in May with rebellions and strikes?May 1 was declared International Workers’ Day in 1889 by socialists in memory of the Haymarket Martyrs, who fought for an eight-hour work day. By 1894 millions were unemployed and in the streets after a U.S. capitalist economic crash. By May of that year, hundreds of railroad workers of the Pullman company and the American Railroad Union struck, closing down all rail traffic passing through key Midwest links. President Grover Cleveland called out U.S. troops to put down the strike with bloody repression — and then he pushed a proposal through Congress for an “officially recognized” Labor Day.What a reminder that a militant workers’ struggle — the struggle of labor against capital — will never win if we wait for “official recognition” before we make demands or take action.In Boston this Labor Day, the streets were taken over by hundreds of workers who are not waiting.Low-wage Marriott hotel workers advanced into the heart of the financial district at Prudential Center on Sept. 4. This was no symbolic march.Shouting “¡Si se puede!” “Yes, we can!” and “What kind of power? Union power!” the property maintenance workers, doormen, window cleaners and food service workers flooded the streets. They sat down to block traffic, and at the Sheraton Boston they announced a strike authorization vote. The workers are represented by Local 26, Unite Here.In Labor Day coast-to-coast militancy, almost a thousand Marriott hotel workers also demonstrated in San Francisco for living wages. Seventy-five workers were arrested. An overall demand was “One job should be enough!”Despite the vicious, continuing pushback and repression from bosses, workers are surging again. Today, the struggle may be for “enough.”Workers create everything. Some day, on the road to socialism, the cry from workers will be for everything.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU campaign warns against the consequences of binge drinking

first_imgFlu activity remains high in Texas Revamped enrollment process confuses some students printOne TCU campaign has advice for students who are trying to avoid binge drinking: know exactly what’s in the cup.“If you are at a party and handed a cup of punch, you might think you’re just having one drink,” said Tiara Nugent, director of TCU’s Power 2 Choose campaign. “The catch is you don’t know exactly what is in that beverage. One cup of party punch is usually actually the equivalent of five or six standard drinks.”The Power 2 Choose is TCU’s initiative to reduce alcohol consumption on campus. In the past three years, the latest information available from the TCU Police Department shows a continued rise in on-campus liquor law violations. In 2013, there were a total of 708 on-campus arrests for liquor violations. In 2015, there were 771 total arrests. Nugent said excessively drinking can have short and long-term consequences.“Unintentional injuries, alcohol poisoning, liver damage, sexual dysfunction, high blood pressure and heart disease are all common consequences of binge drinking,” she said. “Alcohol decreases situational awareness and inhibitions, so those who binge drink are also at higher risk of physical or sexual assault. Binge drinking also impacts memory retention, so academic and physical performance are always affected as well.”Nationwide, nearly 1,800 students die from alcohol-related injuries, more than 600,000 students are harmed while intoxicated and over 100,000 students become victims of sexual assault due to alcohol-related actions, according to studies by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.The institute defines binge drinking as consuming five or more alcoholic drinks for males and four or more alcoholic drinks for females within a two-hour time period.A TCU student, who wished to stay anonymous, said binge drinking makes them feel embarrassed.“I wake up the next morning and feel extremely anxious because I’m not sure if I made mistakes, had fights with friends or did something embarrassing that everyone saw,” the student said. “I feel ashamed if I ever make bad decisions and ashamed for drinking that excessive amount. I also feel worried that I will get caught and get in trouble.”Bianca Newton, a program manager in TCU’s Alcohol & Drug Education Center, said binge drinking shouldn’t be confused with social drinking“Binge drinking may lead to things you may not ordinarily do,” she said. “You might say something to friends that ruin relationships or you may have legal issues. We have quite a few TCU students that say, based on having a binge experience, they’ve done something that they later regretted.”Newton said social drinking is safe and can be achieved by having one or two drinks, but she emphasized the dangers of binge drinking.“Binge drinking could lead to you to some legal actions that could really follow you beyond just your time at TCU,” she said.  Grace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ ReddIt ReddIt Linkedin TCU cancels offer to trade tickets for canned food Grace Amiss is a senior journalism major and managing editor for TCU360.
