Executive Council wraps up 2013-2015 triennial work

It is a wonderful and beautiful building, but it needs a larger main conference room, apartments with their own bathrooms and, I am sure, rewiring for today’s technology. Given the funds being raised by the Cathedral to repair the earthquake damage it sustained, the National Church would have to be a major source of funds to restore and upgrade the College of Preachers building.

Comments (4) Executive Council meets March 21 in its last plenary session of the 2013-2015 triennium. The March 19-21 meeting took place in downtown Salt Lake City near the Salt Palace Convention Center, the setting of the June 23-July 3 meeting of General Convention. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City, Utah] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council during its March 19-21 meeting here celebrated its work together and looked forward to the future.“A fair amount of energy during the gathering was devoted to issues of transition,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts said of the meeting during a press conference. “Executive Council reviewed its work of the last triennium and they made recommendations that they will pass on to the next iteration of Executive Council.”“The work of Executive Council has been full this triennium and I think they have good reason to be proud of what they have accomplished,” she added.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, said during the news conference that “one thing that distinguishes this council is that throughout the triennium” they have “lent a critical eye to how the council functions and how the council can be even more effective in how it works.”Each of council’s five standing committees wrote a memo to its successor, outlining the work it has done as well as partially completed work that they recommend be continued, and the outgoing class has written a similar memo about council’s overall functioning. The terms of half of the 38 members ends this summer after the 78th meeting of General Convention.When that June 23-July 3 meeting convenes here in Salt Lake City, debates over the governance structures of the Episcopal Church, including council, will feature prominently. In one of its last acts of the triennium, council agreed to issue a response to some of the recommendations of the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church.TREC grew out of General Convention Resolution C095, which called for a committee to develop a plan for “reforming the church’s structures, governance, and administration.”“I had thought there might be some way of finding consensus around the TREC report [but] I don’t think there’s a lot of consensus around the TREC report,” John Johnson, who chaired a small group of council members that drafted the response, told council as he presented the report for its approval.Because of that lack of consensus, the committee made a few general comments about the report before responding specifically to what TREC said about Executive Council.The statement, whose final text will be available soon, said that TREC’s structural resolutions “while bold for some, follow a path often focused on saving money but without a clear vision of what mission a new structure will allow the wider church to pursue.”The statement said the council is “committed to thoughtful and bold change in the structure and governance of the Episcopal Church,” and it added that “the scope of work for TREC may not have been to present a bold new mission for the wider Episcopal Church, but we wonder with the church what this renewal might look like.”Executive Council member Deborah Stokes leads the Prayers of the People March 21 during Eucharist. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“Is the mission of The Episcopal Church to bring the world to the church or to bring The Episcopal Church to the world and what does that look like in the 21st century?” the council asked.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). It is now 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 and the president of the House of Deputies. TREC called for reducing the membership to 21 “to improve its effectiveness as a board.”Council said the reduction would not improve its effectiveness. “While we understand the concern about reducing the cost of governance, we also are concerned that false economies could harm the church in the long run,” the statement said.Council divides itself into five standing committees, plus occasional subcommittees, and the statement said that much of the work of council happens in those smaller groups, “which allows Council to engage in a deep, substantive discussion on important fiduciary and missional concerns in a workable group size.”Reducing the size of council “inevitably means diminished representation and perspectives from the broader church,” the council said, adding that a smaller council would also mean “diminished capacity for fiduciary oversight.”The last meeting of convention also said, via Resolution D016, that “it is the will of this convention to move the church center headquarters” away from the building that the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society owns at 815 Second Avenue in New York. (The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the legal and canonical name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business and carries out mission.)The final text of the resolution was significantly amended during convention debate to remove directives that would have required council to sell or lease out the entire property and relocate the church center headquarters “as soon as it is economically feasible.”Council has spent the triennium studying the implications of D016 and on March 21 council agreed to preserve and continue the work of its subcommittee on church center relocation by creating an ad hoc committee of Executive Council for the next triennium.The committee will be charged with examining the missional, strategic, and financial aspects of the location of the church center and with providing a final recommendation to the Executive Council. The charge is similar to that of the subcommittee whose work is ending.Council Member Bryan Krislock, who co-chaired the subcommittee with Fredrica Harris Thompsett, said the group’s extensive “listening process” (including a churchwide survey and individual interviews with “key stake members”) showed that “to be blunt, there’s no consensus.” The listening “revealed a deep divide among the members of the church, not just specific to members of council but to the members of the church in terms of what is the best missional strategy for the church center,” he said.Some believe a building is not needed, others said there should multiple locations, others said there should be a presence in New York area but not at the current address while others called for a more geographically central location in the United States. The “significant factions” of opinion come from all over the country, are in all orders of ministry and have all sorts of relationships with the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society staff, Krislock said.The subcommittee worked with professionals to analyze potential alternative sites and the cost involved in such moves. “We have excellent financial information,” Harris Thompsett told her colleagues. “We have some strategic information, but not yet the clear focus for the direction of a church center or centers.”Krislock said the subcommittee is “still grappling with the broader strategic questions about where the church center or the church staff should be located, how those interact with the costs and the best way to evaluate the financial information we’ve received and analyze it in a meaningful way to prepare a final recommendation.”The subcommittee was concerned that its work to date would be lost in the transition between triennia, he said. The group believes the work needs to continue “and we do not leave the impression that we have in essence given up.”Harris Thompsett agreed, adding “we’ve gone as far as we can go with intelligence and integrity.”When asked why the new committee would report its final recommendation to council and not to the General Convention, Krislock noted that the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society owns the New York church center property and the council, as its board of directors, is the only entity that can decide to sell it.The subcommittee will soon submit a report that is meant to be an appendix to the council’s Blue Book report. That report will not contain specifics about “geographic hunches” or financial information due to the incomplete state of the subcommittee’s work, Harris Thompsett said.In other action, council:* Affirmed the House of Bishops’ March 17 resolution calling for an independent commission to explore the canonical, environmental, behavioral and procedural dimensions of matters involving the serious impairment of individuals serving as leaders in the church. The commission, which is due to be appointed by Jefferts Schori in consultation with Jennings, is supposed to give special attention to issues of addiction and substance abuse. Council revised the 2015 budget to include $150,000 to fund the commission’s work.* Passed resolutions offered by its Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking on urging Episcopalians, governments and non-governmental organizations to oppose human trafficking, religious persecution, and climate change.* Agreed to require that all children and staff participating in the General Convention Children’s Program be vaccinated. A child may be exempted by presenting a certificate from a physician certifying that a person’s physical condition precludes one or more immunizations.The March 19-21 meeting took place at the Radisson Salt Lake City Downtown.Summaries of the resolutions council passed at this meeting are here.Some council members tweeted from the meeting using #ExCoun.– The Rev.

Is Apopka a sanctuary city?

first_img David Anti Jerry Thompson Reply May 2, 2017 at 10:21 pm May 1, 2017 at 8:33 am David, I don’t believe Apopka Voice is a “liberal rag,” if that is who you are posting about. I believe Apopka Voice is a conservative online publication, although I don’t know if they even rated as to being liberal or conservative. Most of the larger publications are rated, but a lot of the smaller ones, newspapers and online publications, are not. Anyway, what if they were liberal?????? You are getting a FREE continuous news source about what is happening in your own area………I think your posting is a case of “taking it out on the messenger” when some of the local news rubs you wrong…… Crime is everywhere, not just this area, David. It is sad, but some of the tiny little hick towns that were the old stomping ground of the my childhood are now dangerous places with violent gangs and murders that are commonplace. Very sad, but I understand your being upset about the crime here………. Jack Douglas This is nothing more than a witch hunt done by Mike Heaton and the cronies of the ‘old guard’ ! Shamfull!

I hope no one’s yard or house catches on fire, during their firing off the big bottle rockets…..!!!!! 32 COMMENTS David  “Just received a phone call stating Joe has been talking with some religious organizations for their support in making Apopka a Sanctuary City. Say it ain’t so Joe! Lord help us.”The thread lasted over 48 hours and received over 25 comments.Then on Friday on the Errol Estate social media site nextdoor.com, a thread that lasted all day and went well over 50 comments began with these two posts:“Word is out on Tampa news, Apopka to be a sanctuary city. How will that affect our property values?”Longtime Apopka resident Michael Heaton also commented on the thread.“Mayor Joe is working through a ministry, as other cities do, to avoid the issue of the city, which is against federal law, actually looking like they are doing the work, but until the courts catch up with the loophole, Mayor Joe is all in for Apopka being a sanctuary city. Those that voted for him are getting the change all right.”Note: No source was given in the post, nor could The Apopka Voice find a source for “Tampa news” relating to Apopka being a sanctuary city. What you need to do is find the creeps that are shooting out the lights. They need to be arrested and also pay for the lights. If they live in Apopka that is a disgrace. If they are using a real firearm they need to be charged with a felony. Are there any video cameras in the are that may have recorded them? David, maybe you could install some bright lights on the side of your house that project outwardly to light up your surrounding yard area. Maybe one on each corner. That would be better than total darkness, from shot out street lights. Just trying to help……. You have entered an incorrect email address!

After that the dude with the gun knows who you are. The deputy that responded to my burglary is the one who told me why i do not have streetlights. They know but have their hands tied. Most of my neighbors are very good people and are hard working and family oriented. I guess there are challenges living anywhere now days as to crime, because it is everywhere. Living in a gated community with security isn’t even safe anymore, unbelievably. If you don’t decide to move David, maybe you could put some security iron bars on your windows and doors to help prevent break ins. I know that is expensive, but other than having a gun, and security cameras, that is all I can think of David. I hope things settle down on your street because I know that is stressful to you. David April 30, 2017 at 2:03 am Today the vehicle thieves struck while I was at the shopping strip plaza behind the Chick-Fil-A at Hunt Club shortly before 1:00 pm, and waiting on my medicine to be filled at the pharmacy. I am lucky it was not me that it happened to. However, a lady that was in the pharmacy, at the same time I was, had her car stolen right out front of the store and when she came out, she started asking my husband and I if we saw anyone driving off with her car. I didn’t see anything, as I was sitting on the bench outside the pharmacy facing the storefront, and didn’t hear anything either, and my husband had stepped back inside the pharmacy to use the restroom, while I was outside waiting. She was upset and called the Seminole Sheriff. They came and said more than likely the thief or thieves were heading toward Apopka, because that’s where they usually head to!!! Just a reminder to everyone to keep your vehicles locked at all times, and beware! It was a bright royal blue Mitsubishi Lancer, don’t know the tag #….. I feel bad because I was right there in front of where her car was along the curb and stolen, but I had my back turned and didn’t see or hear anything, and my husband was inside the pharmacy in the restroom at that time. They are sooooo slick! I hope her car is recovered, and still in one piece, if it is found! I am a minority in my 2/3 Hispanic neighborhood. I asked why we do not have streetlights here and was told it is because my neighbors shoot them out. I thought it was a lie until one was fixed for 2 nights until it was shot out. Reply Sanctuary cities talk crap about not snitching out illegals who report crimes. It has nothing to do with that and it is an outright lie to assert that. No one is asking to detain victims. The entire conundrum is about people who have been arrested for criminal activity. If they are not here legally why not detain them? Dustin Bunch of people on here who remind me of family who sits around and judges everything in the world and yet you have probably never left the country let alone your “hick” hometown.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply May 2, 2017 at 10:20 pm David David people (( illegal )) immigrants have no rights under our law. If they go thru the correct vetting system then they are afforded some legal rights. When they come over the border and start a lawn business they are still illegal and do not belong here. When you ship an illegal back to their country of origin then send their family with them , they are probably illegal also. If the family is legal then they can start the vetting process to get the person thru the proper process and return them here . Who cares about liberal or not. It’s so stupid. People are dumb. 80% of you are just simply incompetent to even have this conversation. Just let the smart people help figure it out and stay home and watch tv or whatever it s racist and deplorable folks do. Get over it.

Reply Reply David May 1, 2017 at 8:42 am I have those plus cameras that watch the front of my house since the burglary. That still does not illuminate the rest of the street. A hot topic on Apopka social mediaAnalysisBy Reggie ConnellFor the past few days, social media in Apopka has been talking about sanctuary cities.Perhaps it’s because of the March and Rally for Immigrant and Worker Rights happening in Apopka on Monday bringing this issue to the forefront in Apopka, or possibly it’s just because election season seems to be in full swing in Apopka despite being 11 months out. But whatever the reason, there were two significant discussions on two local sites.On April 26th, the Facebook page “Apopka Community Facts Uncensored”, one of its administrators posted this comment: According to Wikipedia, a sanctuary city is one that limits its cooperation with the national government in regard to detaining and deporting undocumented migrants and/or sets other law enforcement priorities. Leaders of sanctuary cities want to reduce the fear of deportation and possible family break-up so that such residents will be more willing to report crimes, use health and social services, and enroll their children in school.Municipal policies include prohibiting police or city employees from questioning people about their immigration status and refusing requests by federal immigration authorities to detain people beyond their release date if they were jailed for breaking local law. Such policies can be set expressly in law or observed in practice, but the designation “sanctuary city” does not have a precise legal definition.Opponents of “sanctuary cities” argue that cities should support the mission of federal agents, while supporters argue that the duty of federal agents does not belong to localities.Mayor Kilsheimer, Commissioner Velazquez respond Reply May 3, 2017 at 10:02 pm May 2, 2017 at 10:58 am And a final thought; see, the people looking for safety from war torn contries are seeking a safe place to live and be the good people they were, unti idiots like the ones on this post start wars and create problems. Then they have no where to go. No food,no cloths, no house, no car ,no water, no AC, none of the things you sit around and think are normal. It’s a place and time you know nothing about. You sit in your luxury house or car and drink fresh water and eat till you fart and vote for Dump and then think you have a right to talk about other nations people who have nothing because of morons like you. It’s so disgusting it make me want to be like you and annihilate you, but I know that hate and anger are not the answer. And politics won’t solve it either. You know what will? Heart, soul, compassion, but most of all education and understanding. But I’m betting you, David and Mike, have almost none of that do you?All I know is I will love those who try and care. Those who don’t….well….good day to you forever. April 30, 2017 at 7:52 pm And mike heaton is some white dude who is bitter and sad.

What is a sanctuary city? jerry Mama Mia Later in the nextdoor.com thread, Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer responded to the accusations. Among them was this post:“The Hope Community Center was founded in the 1970s. The nuns who founded it came to Apopka more than 40 years ago to minister to farmworkers. The farmworkers came to Apopka in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s because they were INVITED to come here by the FARMERS and NURSERY OWNERS. According to the 2010 census, the Hispanic population in Apopka amounts to 26 percent of the city’s total population. These are all facts about Apopka that existed even before I was elected to city council in 2012. I have been invited to events at Hope Community Center and I have attended, just as I have attended events at virtually every other denomination in Apopka. Finally, I will state categorically: the suggestion that Apopka is doing anything to impede the enforcement of federal immigration law — officially or unofficially — is false, inflammatory and hurtful.”Commissioner Diane Velazquez was not in the nextdoor.com thread, but she did tell The Apopka Voice about her concern for that sort of criticism.“The inflammatory posts on Next Door social media site alleging Apopka is listed as Sanctuary City is an outright lie and intended to incite negative and hurtful remarks toward the Mexican and Hispanic community in our city and should not be tolerated by any group or member in our city. As a retired member of law enforcement & as an elected official, I took an oath. I respect and honor those Oaths.  I respect and embrace everyone who calls Apopka home which includes our diverse Hispanic community.The immigration issue is a hot topic with strong opinions reference to sanctuary cities. In my tenure, as Commissioner, I have always maintained a good relationship with both the Hope Community & the Farmworkers, supporting their community efforts to serve the Farmworkers & their families, working in the local farms & nurseries of Apopka.”The official comment from the City of Apopka came from Public Information Officer Robert Sargent, who categorically denied the allegations of discussions about sanctuary cities.“The City of Apopka has not had any discussion of any kind – official or unofficial – about sanctuary cities. City staff recently reviewed an application and permitted Monday’s march with requirements for pedestrian safety. That’s it.”The Monday march is called the March and Rally for Immigrant and Worker Rights. It starts at Kit Land Nelson Park at 2 PM. To read more on the march, go here. Tirso Moreno, General Coordinator of the Farmworker Association of Florida, explains its significance.“Most of Florida’s agriculture industry and rural economy is sustained by the work and contributions of farmworkers and their families,” says Moreno. “On May Day we are sending a message loud and clear to all local elected leaders and to the American public inviting them to value farmworker and immigrant communities.” Reply Reply Reply Reply David May 5, 2017 at 7:53 pm Hey Jack. Thanks for the well wishes. Speaking of intelligence, maybe you should turn on your spell check. We got up and opened our front door one morning and discovered the ICE agents on our street apprehending a person. This was about 5 years ago under Obama, not Trump. Under Obama, supposedly he was only rounding up the really bad ones. That was alarming to open our front door, and see them on our street in action. Then later on, two different times we had the full SWAT teams on our street doing busts, decked out, and assault rifles in their hands…..and they used one of those flash bangs or whatever you call those things, and let me tell you, it is a scary thing to witness all the police out there in action in full SWAT attire with assault rifles when it is right on your street!!! Reply Michael Heaton Dustin David, I can live without speed bumps too, I hate those things! So it is that bad on your street?…..wow, I just don’t know what you can do about it. Does all this shooting happen when they are partying and drinking, or is it just randomly when everything else is quiet? With all those nutty gun owners on your street, I hope you have one for your own protection, at least.

Every race has had people. Hick towns do bad things also. All of you who make these comments are gross hypocrites and you need to open your eyes and stop complaining. Take action and help the situation. Have a heart for gods sake. Cry cry cry is all you do. This ain’t political. It’s about human beings you (expletive deleted by Editor).

I am not talking about politics either, I am talking about crime which hurts everyone. I just don’t understand how they can say to an illegal that committed a crime that he can go free and then tell a citizen that committed the same crime That he will be going to prison for two years? Justice is supposed to be blind.

I am just now seeing your part of your comments David. I know I have called the police at least twice out at night about shots fired. It wasn’t on my street, but very close. Once we came home, and had not gotten into our house and we heard them. Pop, pop, pop, pop………and then we heard car tires screeching off, and getting gone, and I called police, because who knows what was going on. Another time I called, when I heard shots in the neighborhood, but never could find out who it was, and it was not fireworks!last_img read more

Fijian lock gets heavy suspension after contesting red card for ‘dangerously charging in to the ruck’

first_imgWednesday Jan 29, 2020 Fijian lock gets heavy suspension after contesting red card for ‘dangerously charging in to the ruck’ Northampton Saints second row Api Ratuniyarawa appeared before an independent disciplinary panel last night after he was red carded in the second half of his team’s clash with London Irish last Friday night.ADVERTISEMENTThe Fijian Rugby World Cup 2019 forward was punished for dangerous play in a ruck or maul, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.20.The independent panel ruled that a four-week suspension was applicable, making him free to play again on Tuesday 10 March 2020.Independent panel chair Charles Cuthbert said: “The player did not accept that he had committed an act of foul play by dangerously charging in to the ruck. He argued that he had bound on to the London Irish player. This was not accepted by the panel after reviewing the footage”“The panel found it was a reckless action. While the panel were satisfied that there was no intent to cause injury, his shoulder did make contact to the face of the London Irish player who confirmed he suffered no injury as a result. The mandatory mid-range entry point applies where there is contact with the head and the panel found no factors to merit a top end entry point.“The player was allowed mitigation for his clear disciplinary record over a long professional career at a high level. He apologised both and off-field to the London Irish player involved and his own team and is engaged in community activities and coaching. He was allowed 2 weeks in mitigation and is therefore suspended for 4 weeks.ADVERTISEMENT“The 4 week sanction covers Northampton Saints next 4 meaningful fixtures.”What do you think of this latest suspension?

House for a Family of Musicians / Baum Lab

The city, as the crystallization of social interactions, begins in the domestic spaces. In-between areas, in which public and intimate interact, become an urban force. In ancient Islamic cities the urban grid was conceived from the inside out. This project reflects on the idea of the patio both as the core of the house and the seed for urban revitalization.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe assignment was to refurbish a heritage protected patio house from the 18thcentury, located at the core of Seville’s historic centre. The initial condition of the building was critic, with many elements about to collapse. Nevertheless, the typology was well preserved and the spatial values were still there. Our proposal aimed at identifying the inner values of the house, in order to create a new contemporary reality in which old and new,could build a container for the everyday of a family of musicians. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe project works with the idea of privacy filters, manipulating the intermediate spaces in order to build a soft transition from the public spaces to the intimate ones. The patio emerges then as a semi-private area, highly connected with the street, and in which family interactions could take place. The house is thought as a sequence of spaces, linked by the light void of the patio.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaJust like the pianist Glenn Gould reinterpreted Bach ́s Goldberg variations in 1955, this project is willing to look at the past of the building and to write a new contemporary chapter. Revitalizing the old town, beyond new parasitic touristic uses, was also one of our main goals. Far from speculative approaches, this rehabilitation aims at a historic centre as an alive neighborhood. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe approach to the matter of old and new followed a very clear line of thoughts: Diagnose, Depuration, Consolidation and Prosthesis. It is an essentially reversible process that consolidates historical remains and enable new uses. Thus, after a very deep study of the original condition of the building, all those previously added, distorting elements were removed. The historical remains were consolidated, using traditional techniques and materials. Finally, we introduced a series of new elements, developed with contemporary materials. However, the proposal is not aiming at a violent contrast between old and new, but rather a new coherent reality.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaLike in an origami exercise, the railing system, a continuous metal plate, is folded up to the second floor, creating a visual connection and bringing the light down. The first flight of stairs had an original vaulted structure from the 18th century that was consolidated and preserved. The second nav’s slab and the galleries were built with brick vaultsSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe Project proposes the consolidation of the traditional elements, using traditional techniques and materials: clay mortar, brick vaults and wooden elements. For all the new elements we used metallic solutions: metal slabs, folded metal sheets and plates-made window frames. The flooring system is hard (structural polished concrete of the bracing slab) on the ground floor and it becomes soft (industrial solid oak parquet) as it reaches the more private spaces on the first floor.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaProject gallerySee allShow lessSL House / Ben Walker ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHouse in Huerta de Rey / MecanismoSelected Projects Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960058/house-for-a-family-of-musicians-baum-lab Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation, Historic Preservation•Costa Mesa, United States Lead Architect: Area:  310 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project United States “COPY” Architects: Baum Lab Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Houses Baum Lab, Marta Barrera Altermir, Javier Caro Domínguez, Miguel Gentil Fernández House for a Family of Musicians / Baum Lab House for a Family of Musicians / Baum LabSave this projectSaveHouse for a Family of Musicians / Baum Lab “COPY” Save this picture!© Jesús Granada+ 22Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960058/house-for-a-family-of-musicians-baum-lab Clipboard 2018 CopyAbout this officeBaum LabOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHistoric PreservationOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on April 19, 2021Cite: “House for a Family of Musicians / Baum Lab” [Casa para una familia de músicos / Baum Lab] 19 Apr 2021.
