This was the guiding light that caused the Church during and in the aftermath of WWII to establish its arm of caingcompassion, in effect the human face of the Community of Faith, the Presiding Bishops Fund for World Relief, and since the year 2,000 separated into two agencies, one directly a part of the national staff known as Episcopal Migration Ministries, and the other with its own Board known as Episcopal Relief and Development. Both in celebrating their 75th Anniversaries have stood fast in reaching out to those in need. However when both were part of the PBFWR with the Presiding Bishop as the Chair, and four members of the Fund’s Board as members of the Executive Council, in major domestic and global emergencies, the Presiding Bishop with the Executive Council would immediately issue a Special Appeal, as in the East Africa Famine as well as in the Lebanon Civil War, to which the Church responded generously to in concert with its Ecumenical and Interfaith Partners as CWS, LWR, and in consortias with global Agencies that had similar charters as Save the Children, endeavoring to meet the many urgent relief as well as longer communal devlopment needs of those facing loss of home and livlihood, especially of women and children due to civil war and natural disasters. The response of the Emergency appeal by the Presiding Bishop for the Fund in the Lebanon Appeal brought in over a period of a few months some three million “extra mile” Dollars (in the 1980’s worth of the Dollar) ~ and the same for the East Africa Famine, among such other lextra milel generous contributions throughout the Church. All this in addition to the resettlement of thousands of refugees adopted by local congregations from among the Refugees admitted into the United States.In the years since then much has been accomplished in serving human need by EMM and ERD and continues today. However with the continuing civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya, the Yemen and Somalia, the global family, as Archbishop Suheil has indicated, especially the Congregations in his diocese and elsewhere, while overwhelemd with numbers of refugees in their mmidst are nevertheless reaching to assuage the suffering and deprivation of the many tens of thousands of refugees, and ard facing an all consuming challenege not experienced by the global family since the displacements in WWII, These many millions of Refugees and Asylum Seekers fleeing their homelands daily are seeking refuge and safety in neighboring countries as Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, and many families in their despair of overcrowded camps with minimal services are perishing at Sea in unworthy crafts seeking to reach the safety of Europe. The.Challenge is clearly before us as a Church in the promise made by our Blessed Lord in St. John’s Gospel …. “I have come that you have life and have it abundantly”.The question before us is how to face the complex realities of the Millions of Refugees that urgently need the assistance of all our Faith Communities. Both EMM, ERD, as well UTO and Church related private caring agencies as the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem (AFEDJ surely welcome the generous Offerings of each of us today in our time, talent as well as treasurein seeking to alleviate such massive human suffering and displacement.

Photo: Matthew Davies/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem] Reflection by the Archbishop in Jerusalem, the Most Rev. Suheil Dawani, on the situation for refugees in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East.The Samaritan “bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’” (Luke 10:34-35The story of the good Samaritan is one that is a guide to Christians across the globe as to how we can be neighbours for those who need us, whoever she or he may be; and it is, I believe, relevant all the more so in our approach to how we as individuals and communities welcome and care for refugees. It is with this in mind that I write, aware of the extraordinary work that ordinary men and women in our Diocese are doing in caring for refugees from Syria and Iraq. The refugee crisis is serious – very serious – and demands that we respond with compassion and care to people who have faced untold horrors, and who have had to leave their martyrs behind.As refugees seek sanctuary, we as Christians are challenged to open our doors and share what we have with strangers. Archbishop Mouneer in his article Our calling: Welcome refugees, support development, make peace, (posted on the ACNS, Anglican Communion News Service, 28th September 2015) cites Jesus commandment that we must share what we have. If we cannot for whatever reason share our house, then we must share our gifts and our resources.Hospitality is one of the hallmarks of this diocese: for centuries we have shown hospitality to pilgrims, to people who went on their way “sometimes not knowing whither they would come”, but seeking an expression of the Kingdom of God, as Abraham did. On other occasions and throughout history the Churches of the region extended hospitality to the thousands of people forced to leave their homes for an unknown destination. During the past one hundred years there were Circassian refugees from Russia, Armenians from Turkey, Jews from Europe, refugees from Palestine, Iraq, Soudan, and many other places. Now our challenge is to show hospitality to yet another traveler, refugees and migrants from Syria.At the moment Jordan welcomes some 1.25 million Syrians, 300,000 Iraqis, 400,000 Egyptians, 100,000 Libyans and 50,000 Yemenis. In Irbid (Northern Jordan) there are 250,000 refugees; and in the refugee camp of Zaatari’s on the Syrian border there are some 120,000 people who live in tents and caravans. Places that were once desert are now large towns, which require infrastructure, including schools and hospitals, electricity and water, shops and roads, and much more.One way the Church has managed to respond is through “The Network”, which, under the supervision of The Rev’d Canon ‘Brother Andrew’ De Carpentier of the Anglican “Holy Land Institute for Deaf and Deafblind Children” in Salt, has brought together different local organizations providing essential medical and paramedical care to thousands of refugees with disabilities in need. The “Network” is a partnership between: The Dhia Society (a Jordanian charity for visually impaired children), The Raja society (a school for the education and training of those with cognitive issues), The Avicenna (Ibn Sina) society (a Jordanian organization for helping those with mobility issues); and the Palestine Hospital (A Church-affiliated specialist hospital for Trauma and Neurology).Another way the Church responded is through the work of St Paul’s church in Ashrafiyeh – Amman. The Reverend George Kopti describes how refugees have become part of the church family, with activities provided for the children and for women, as well as a new mid-week Bible study for the Christians who have fled. As winter approaches, the congregation are gathering gas stoves to hand, and distributing food coupons.The Rev’d Canon Samir Esaid, vicar of The Virgin Mary Episcopal Church in Irbid explained how his church is reaching out to refugees in the community with a special focus on providing education and support to parents of children who are blind or visually impaired. It helps parents cope with their children who attend the Arab Episcopal School for visually impaired and sighted children. Not only did they take in refugees as students, but in one instant also had a refugee working as a volunteer teacher in the school. He explained that for many the border between Syria and Jordan was quite arbitrary as related families were living on both sides, with many Jordanians now looking after their Syrian relatives.It is hard for those who have not experienced the need to flee their homeland to envisage what life is like. Where is the next meal? Where will I sleep tonight? What about my children’s education? What shall I do for my child who is ill? Where shall I go with my child who is blind or deaf, who is traumatized and disturbed? Who can help me with a child that has mobility problems, suffers of epilepsy or cerebral palsy? These are real questions for real people looking for sanctuary, safety and friendship.What is heartening is that these experiences give us all faith in humanity and encourage us to go the extra mile and help those in need as Christ asks us to. If all of us, whoever and wherever we are, can reach out to those who are suffering, whether they are strangers seeking sanctuary or are well known to us, I believe our lives will be transformed and become more like the person Christ calls us to be: Good Samaritans, brothers to all whom we encounter, sharing our gifts, and ultimately grafting our lives more into Jesus when his love, compassion and generosity work in and through us.AMEN An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing November 2, 2015 at 10:26 pm The Diocese of Jeusalem in its Refugee work in Jordan, and indeed the entire Province of The Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East with its Four constituent dioceses are heavily impacted with Refugees.

He holds an MA in Journalism from the University of Limerick and is particularly interested in sports writing. Limerick’s Oisin O’Callaghan Claims World Title In Salzburg MORE than 100 bicycles have been restored to good condition as part of a joint initiative between Green Schools Travel and Limerick Smarter Travel for National Bike Week.The Limerick Smarter Travel (LST) Schools Project involves professional bicycle mechanics teaching basic repairs to people and was launched in response to a survey of schools which found that children were not cycling because their bikes were broken.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Around 60 children took part in a bike repair workshop last week in St Brigid’s National School in association with Evolution Cycles and Siopa Rothar Teo, with more than 100 people attending a similar event in Castletroy Park in association with RAW Cycles. The professional mechanics showed people basic repairs such as fixing punctures, tightening bolts and lubricating wheels.Ellen O’Sullivan from Green Schools Travel and Limerick Smarter Travel said that the mechanics were very helpful and hailed the success of the workshops.“The mechanics were wonderful. They gave their time for free and they were very helpful. They just got stuck into it. It’s a terrific initiative. It was piloted last year in Castletroy and Southhill and it was such a success that we had another one in Southhill last September.“These are fantastic events for the community and they teach children about bicycle safety. It’s very important to make sure that the children are safe.”The next workshop will take place at the Southhill Men’s Shed on this Friday June 20 between 4pm and 6pm. That will be quickly followed by the Limerick City Bicycle Parade on Sunday June 22, with registration at Howley’s Quay at 2pm.

Today in History

first_img TAGS Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest WhatsApp Local NewsUS News By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 Facebookcenter_img Facebook Today in History Pinterest Twitter Today in History Today is Friday, Jan. 29, the 29th day of 2021. There are 336 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 29, 1979, President Jimmy Carter formally welcomed Chinese Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping (dung shah-oh-ping) to the White House, following the establishment of diplomatic relations. On this date: In 1820, King George III died at Windsor Castle at age 81; he was succeeded by his son, who became King George IV. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe’s famous narrative poem “The Raven” (“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary…”) was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. In 1919, the ratification of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which launched Prohibition, was certified by Acting Secretary of State Frank L. Polk. In 1936, the first inductees of baseball’s Hall of Fame, including Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth, were named in Cooperstown, New York. In 1963, the first charter members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame were named in Canton, Ohio (they were enshrined when the Hall opened in September 1963). Poet Robert Frost died in Boston at age 88. In 1966, the musical comedy “Sweet Charity” starring Gwen Verdon opened on Broadway. In 1975, a bomb exploded inside the U.S. State Department in Washington, causing considerable damage, but injuring no one; the radical group Weather Underground claimed responsibility. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan announced in a nationally broadcast message that he and Vice President George H.W. Bush would seek re-election in the fall. In 1998, a bomb rocked an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, killing security guard Robert Sanderson and critically injuring nurse Emily Lyons. (The bomber, Eric Rudolph, was captured in May 2003 and is serving a life sentence.) In 2002, in his first State of the Union address, President George W. Bush said terrorists were still threatening America — and he warned of “an axis of evil” consisting of North Korea, Iran and Iraq. In 2006, ABC “World News Tonight” co-anchor Bob Woodruff and a cameraman were seriously injured in a roadside bombing in Iraq. In 2015, Rod McKuen, whose music, verse and spoken-word recordings made him one of the best-selling poets in history, died at 81. Ten years ago: With protests raging, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak named his intelligence chief, Omar Suleiman, as his first-ever vice president. Kim Clijsters finally won her first Australian Open title and the fourth major of her career, as she beat Li Na 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Avant-garde composer Milton Babbitt, 94, died in Princeton, N.J. Five years ago: The Obama administration confirmed for the first time that Hillary Clinton’s home server contained closely guarded government secrets. An avalanche in the Canadian province of British Columbia left five people riding snowmobiles dead. Two American endurance athletes, Daniel Cartica of Chicago and Becca Pizzi of Belmont, Massachusetts, won the World Marathon Challenge by completing seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. French movie director Jacques Rivette, 87, died in Paris. One year ago: A charter flight evacuating 195 Americans, including diplomats and their families, left the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the new viral outbreak; they would undergo three days of testing and monitoring at a California military base. World health officials expressed concern that the virus was starting to spread between people outside China. President Donald Trump’s lawyers asserted at his Senate trial that a trade of U.S. military aid for political favors – even if proven – could not be grounds for his impeachment. Trump signed into law the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, a major rewrite of the rules of trade with Canada and Mexico. Today’s Birthdays: Writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse is 90.

Hiltons donate antique sheller

first_img Hiltons donate antique sheller “You drop the peanuts in and turn the crank and they pop right on through,” he said.“It looks like the peanuts would get crushed but they don’t. You have to separate the peanuts from the shells but the sheller does the work a lot faster than if you had to shell the peanuts by hand.”The Hiltons loaded the peanut sheller on their truck and took it to the Peanut Butter Festival in October but they couldn’t find anyone to accept the sheller. So, they took it back home and put it back in the barn.“Later on, we decided to put it back in the truck and take it to Brundidge,” Hilton said. “We made the arrangements and met Johnny Steed, who is the vice president of the historical society, at the We Piddle Around Theater and he seemed excited to get it.”Steed said he was excited to get a farm implement that related to the peanut industry. He expressed appreciation to Roy and Elsie Hilton for the generous donation.“The peanut sheller will be a great addition to the Peanut Butter Festival and we’ll use it as a demonstration,” Steed said.“I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m sure there will be a lot of interest in it.”Steed said the BHS appreciates the Hilton’s interest and generosity.“We’d love for them to come to the Peanut Butter Festival next year and demonstrate the peanut picker,” Steed said. “People really enjoy learning about farm life in years past.”Tom Huston invented a peanut-shelling machine he sold to farmers for literally peanuts.The sheller that he sold dates back to 1910-1924. The Tom Huston Peanut Sheller mounts on a bench or board. The peanuts are loaded and shelled with a hand crank.Although, there are no papers, the peanut sheller is thought to be one designed by the Tom’s Roasted Peanuts man. Next UpBut hand-cranked peanut shellers are rather rare, even in an area where peanuts replaced King Cotton.Roy Hilton of the New Brockton community happened upon a peanut sheller at an estate sale in Gantt.“I just like primitive stuff and you don’t see many peanut shellers, so I bought it,” Hilton said. “I didn’t really have any use for a peanut sheller so I just put it out in the barn.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Published 3:00 am Friday, January 8, 2016 Roy and Elsie Hilton of the New Brockton community donated a hand-cranked peanut sheller to the Brundidge Historical Society. Johnny Steed, BHS vice president, graciously accept the antique and said it will be used for demonstration purposes at the annual Peanut Butter Festival.When Brundidge Historical Society President Lawrence Bowden was told about a donation of a peanut sheller, he made a correction. “A corn sheller.”And that was an understandable assumption.Corn shellers are not uncommon in an agricultural community where people have held on to their relics from the old farming days.

City council in Asheville, North Carolina, unanimously approves reparation plan

first_imgSean Pavone/iStockBY: IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) — Leaders in Asheville, North Carolina, have taken a historic step to repair centuries of racial prejudice by unanimously voting to provide reparations.The Asheville City Council voted 7-0 on a resolution Tuesday night that formally apologized to its Black residents for the city’s role in slavery, discriminatory housing practices, and other racist policies throughout its history.The measure also calls for a plan to provide reparations to its Black residents in the form of investments in their community such as “increasing minority home ownership,” “increasing minority business ownership and career opportunities,” and “strategies to grow equity and generational wealth,” according to the resolution.Councilman Keith Young, who spearheaded the resolution, told ABC News in a statement that the council was looking “to embed systemic solutions.”“This process begins and is perpetual, repeating this process over and over again,” Young, who is Black, said in the statement. “There is no completion box to check off.”The resolution, which was signed by Mayor Esther Manheimer, calls for the creation of a Community Reparations Commission that will be made up of businesses, local groups and elected officials. The commission will issue detailed recommendations, with plans to implement the reparations in the short and long term.“As far as the timeline goes, we will have some steps to report on within six months and every six months after that,” Young said in a statement.Asheville has a population of 92,870, 83% of which is white, according to the U.S. Census. Minorities own roughly 9.7% of the town’s 12,785 businesses, according to Census data.The council’s resolution also calls on the state and federal governments to come up with their own reparation policies.“This work does not end and will be adaptive, no matter what governing body holds office or who runs our city,” Young said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Atmospheric signals and characteristics of accumulation in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

first_imgWith the planned European Programme for Ice Coring in Antarctica in Dronning Maud Land it is important to understand the processes leading to accumulation for successful interpretation of core data. Because it is impractical to obtain precipitation observations with a large spatial coverage and on a daily timescale in Antarctica, model-generated precipitation must be considered for a comprehensive study of the region. However, without observational data it is difficult to check the veracity of the model data. Precipitation data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts reanalysis project shows that 89% of days have low (under 0.2 mm) precipitation resulting in 31% of the annual total. At the other extreme, less than 1% of days have high (over 1 mm) precipitation, which results in 20% of the annual total. It is reasoned that the changes in the frequency of extreme precipitation events could alter the trace record in ice cores and lead to a bias in reconstructed paleotemperatures. Case studies reveal that high-precipitation days have amplified upper level planetary waves directing warm moist air to the region. Associated with this is the presence of a cyclone in or at the northeast extreme of the Weddell Sea. Commonly, the longwaves provide a blocked anticyclone in the South Atlantic to form a dipolar channeling of the air mass. The accumulation variability is linked to the variability in the intensity of these storms and their tracks. It is seen that this is related to the El Niño-Southern Oscillation and a semiannual cycle.last_img read more
