That’s why he said love the Lord your God, love your neighbor as yourself. Because in that is hope for all of us to be the human family of God.I was in Cuba the last few days with Bishop Griselda and the good people of the diocese there as we received and welcomed them as a full part of The Episcopal Church. A while back when she spoke to the last diocesan synod before they became part of The Episcopal Church, she said, and I quote, “The reason we must become part of The Episcopal Church is so that we can be part of a big family.” She spoke by prophecy. We are all part of a big family. Bigger than our biological families, bigger than our immediate families, bigger than our congregations, bigger than our dioceses, bigger than our cities, our states, our nation.We are part of the human family of God. Jesus came to show us that his way of love is the way of life. It’s God’s human family.We are in a time when remembering that may be important for all of us.We are in this together.What affects some directly affects all indirectly.We are part of a family. The human family of God.Just over the weekend the head of the World Health Organization, said this, and I quote, “We have seen this coming for years. Now is the time to act. This is not a drill. This epidemic can be pushed back, but only with collective, coordinated, and comprehensive approach by us all.”It takes us all. We are family.And then one of the spokespersons for the European Union, speaking to the member states said this, and I paraphrase: We must share our resources and our information. It is not the possession of any one nation.In each of those calls, and in the calls of many of our leaders, we have heard again and again, that we are in this together, we can walk through this together, and we will find our way in our life together.So look out for your neighbors, look out for each other. Look out for yourselves. Listen to those who have knowledge that can help to guide us medically and help to guide us socially. Do everything that we can to do this together, to respond to each other’s needs and to respond to our own needs.Walk together children, don’t get weary, because there’s a great camp meeting in the promised land.Allow me to close with this prayer found on the website of Episcopal Relief & Development, where there are resources and where information can be found.God of the present moment,God who in Jesus stills the stormand soothes the frantic heart;bring hope and courage to allwho wait or work in uncertainty.Bring hope that you will make them the equalof whatever lies ahead.Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,for your will is health and wholeness;you are God, and we need you.This we pray in Christ our Lord. Amen.God love you. God bless you. May God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.Resources and information available here.[10 de marzo de 2020] El Obispo Presidente de la Iglesia Episcopal Michael Curry ha emitido la siguiente declaración.Mire el video del mensaje del Obispo Presidente aquí.En este momento, en el que todos estamos afectados por el coronavirus, ya sea directa o indirectamente, ya sea física, biológica, psicológica, espiritual y, para muchos, económicamente, puede ser útil recordar que estamos en esto juntos.Jesús vino a nosotros en primer lugar, para mostrarnos el camino para ser justos y reconciliarnos con el Dios que es el creador de todos nosotros, y justos y reconciliados entre nosotros como hijos de este único Dios que nos ha creado a todos, y por lo tanto como hermanas, hermanos, y familiares unos de otros.Jesús vino a mostrarnos cómo estar en una relación con Dios y con los demás, vino a mostrarnos cómo vivir no simplemente como colecciones de interés personal individual, sino cómo vivir como la familia humana de Dios. Por eso dijo ama al Señor tu Dios, ama a tu prójimo como a ti mismo. Porque en eso está la esperanza de que todos seamos la familia humana de Dios.Estuve en Cuba los últimos días con la obispa Griselda y con las buenas personas de la diócesis de allí cuando los recibimos y dimos la bienvenida como parte de la Iglesia Episcopal. Hace un tiempo, cuando ella habló en el último sínodo diocesano antes de que se convirtieran en parte de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo, y cito: “La razón por la que debemos formar parte de la Iglesia Episcopal es para que podamos ser parte de una gran familia”. Ella profetizó. Todos somos parte de una gran familia. Más grande que nuestras familias biológicas, más grande que nuestras familias inmediatas, más grande que nuestras congregaciones, más grande que nuestras diócesis, más grande que nuestras ciudades, estados, y nación.Somos parte de la familia humana de Dios. Jesús vino a mostrarnos que su camino de amor es la forma de vida. Es la familia humana de Dios.Nos encontramos en un momento en el que recordar eso puede ser importante para todos nosotros.Estamos en esto juntos.Lo que afecta a algunos directamente afecta a todos indirectamente.Somos parte de una familia. La familia humana de Dios.Justo durante el fin de semana, el jefe de la Organización Mundial de la Salud dijo esto, y cito textualmente: “Hemos visto venir esto durante años. Ahora es el momento de actuar. Esto no es un ejercicio. Esta epidemia puede ser rechazada, pero sólo con un esfuerzo colectivo, coordinado y completo por todos nosotros”.Se nos requiere a todos. Somos familia.Y luego, uno de los portavoces de la Unión Europea, hablando con los Estados miembros, dijo esto, y parafraseo: debemos compartir nuestros recursos y nuestra información. No son posesión de ninguna nación.En cada una de esas llamadas, y en las llamadas de muchos de nuestros líderes, hemos escuchado una y otra vez, que estamos juntos en esto, podemos caminar juntos a través de esto, y encontraremos nuestro camino en nuestra vida juntos.Así que cuide a sus vecinos, cuide a los demás. Cuídense  ustedes mismos. Escuche a los que tienen conocimientos que puedan ayudarnos a guiarnos médicamente, y ayudarnos a guiarnos socialmente. Hagamos todo lo que podamos para lograr esto juntos, para responder a las necesidades de los demás y para responder a nuestras propias necesidades.Caminen juntos hijos, no se cansen, porque hay una gran reunión de campamento en la tierra prometida.Permítanme terminar con esta oración que se encuentra en el sitio web del Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, donde hay materiales y donde se puede encontrar información.Dios del momento presenteDios que en Jesús calma la tormentay alivia el corazón frenético;aporta esperanza y ánimo a todos losque esperan o trabajan en la incertidumbre.Aporta la esperanza de que los tratarás por igualen lo que se avecina.Dales ánimo para soportar lo que no se puede evitar,porque tu voluntad es salud y plenitud;eres Dios y te necesitamos.Esto rezamos en Cristo nuestro Señor. Amén.Que Dios les ame. Que Dios les bendiga. Que Dios les sostenga a todos en esas poderosas manos de amor.

Paul O’Connell knees Brian O’Driscoll in the head

first_imgWednesday Mar 3, 2010 Paul O’Connell knees Brian O’Driscoll in the head Brian O’Driscoll took a big knock to the side of the head against England on Saturday, coming from none other than teamate Paul O’Connell. A few people have requested to see it again, so here is the sickening blow. O’Driscoll was stretchered off the field as a precautionary measure, making the incident look worse than it probably was, but coach Declan Kidney was quick to play down the collision. “Brian took bit of a bang. It was nothing – he was out on the pitch at the end. He’s good and is enjoying the win as much as anyone,” said Kidney, referring to the 20-16 win. “Brian just felt he should make Paul do the press conference to make up for him giving him a bang on the head with his knee. There’s no risk of concussion. He’s fine,” he added. Despite the blow looking pretty severe, with O’Driscoll getting up and falling down twice afterwards, he’s been cleared of further injury and will be free to play against Wales in their next match. He even managed to update his Twitter page on Sunday, the day after the match. ‘Sore head but the win is worth the headache,’ he said.

This building has 3 apartments looking onto the street as well as a 2-story house in the back that looks into an interior patio. The public areas are contained in a single space looking out to the street or into the interior void. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, and a view to the park of Polanco. These conditions became the central design objective, as we wanted to flood the interior out to the street and the park. Therefore the facade responds to the principle of eliminating obstructions between the inside and outside, generating openness and continuity. Save this picture!Working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15 m. span in a slab of 40 cm. with no columns that would interfere with the view; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, hiding their edges in the facade. Save this picture!The private areas are separated from the open public area by sliding doors to allow flexibility to integrate or contain these spaces.

It is important for them to keep personal information required to access housing, employment, health and other services safe from theft or loss.James wanted to create a ‘Virtual Rucksack’, providing a centralised, web-based resource to help them get back on their feet. For the young homeless person, the system will act as a central store for their key personal records and documents as well as links to other support services such as careers, housing and health.For St Basils, the system will provide a digital record of the individual case histories for support at the point of delivery and between visits. Eventually other organisations will be able to link into the system to provide additional support services.Microsoft’s DesignIT competition, now in its third year, aims to help UK charities by inviting IT professionals to come up with ways to solve their IT challenges through innovative and creative ideas. The initiative is designed to highlight and celebrate the creative and positive contributions made by IT professionals outside of their usual work parameters to help a charity.www.microsoft.com/uk/designit Homeless Charity wins Microsoft UK DesignIT 2008 with Virtual Rucksack Tagged with: Awards Technologylast_img read more

Donations in Scotland rose to more than £1bn in 2017

first_imgDonations in Scotland rose to more than £1bn in 2017 Melanie May | 15 June 2018 | News  117 total views,  1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 People across Scotland gave an estimated £1.2 billion to charity in 2017, according to the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF): up from 2016’s estimated £813 million.Now in its second year CAF’s Scotland Giving Report found that Scotland accounts for 11.8% of all UK charitable donations, but represents 8.4% of the UK’s population.However, the increase in money donated was driven by the same number of people giving more, with the average (mean) donation amount increasing from £36 in 2016 to £60 in 2017. CAF found no increase in the number of people giving money to charity year-on-year.The report also found that the most popular causes supported by those in Scotland were children and young people, with 28% of those surveyed saying they had donated to this cause. This was followed by medical research (27%) and animal welfare (25%).In addition, two-thirds (66%) of people took part in a charitable or social activity, such as volunteering for a charity, donating money or goods, or buying an ethical product. More than half (56%) of those interviewed said they had signed a petition in the previous 12 months, while 27% had done so over the previous four weeks. This reflects a pattern across the UK as a whole, and suggests that rapid political change has encouraged people to become more involved in causes and issues.The 2018 Report is based on YouGov monthly polling of people in Scotland between January and December of 2017, with an overall sample size of 1,061 adults.Sir John Low, Chief Executive of Charities Aid Foundation, said:“It’s great to see the total amount donated increasing across Scotland. Activism is also on the rise, perhaps reflecting the turbulent times in which we live. This paints a picture of a thriving, vibrant society of which we should all be proud.“It’s easy to take the work of our charities for granted – indeed CAF’s research over many years shows that millions of people benefit from their work without even realising it. But this report shows how much people value good causes. Without the support of these generous donors, we would all be so much the poorer.”center_img  118 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Well-known journalist and human rights activist beaten up

first_imgNews Follow the news on Kazakhstan October 30, 2020 Find out more One of Kazakhstan’s best-known journalists and human rights campaigners, Sergei Duvanov, was severely beaten up by three unidentified people on his way home yesterday and hospitalised with serious head injuries.The attack coincides with publication by Reporters Without Borders and the Damocles Network of a report on their enquiry into the death in detention of the daughter of opposition journalist Lira Baysetova. Deploring the new attack, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard noted that the situation in Kazakhstan was becoming “more and more dangerous for journalists of the independent media who criticise the police or President Nursultan Nazarbayev. In the space of just a few weeks, two journalists have been severely beaten and the daughter of an opposition journalist had died in dubious circumstances in police hands.” He called for those responsible to be arrested and tried.Duvanov, who is close to the opposition and editor of the magazine Bulletin, published by the International Bureau for Human Rights, is known as one of the government’s fiercest critics. He regularly denounces official harassment of independent media and the opposition and is currently being prosecuted for “harming the honour and dignity” of President Nazarbayev. According to Rozlana Taulkina, president of the Kazakh organisation “Journalists in Danger,” working as a journalist in Kazakhstan now means risking one’s life.The Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network fact-finding mission to Almaty last month into the death of Baysetova’s daughter Leyla (for the mission report, see www.rsf.org) met Duvanov several times. He said he was sure the police had killed her and predicted the authorities would do everything to protect those responsible and hush up the affair.Duvanov also spoke of the authorities’ attempts to intimidate and exert legal pressure on him. “I’m still free and in good health,” he had said, “but this cannot last.

Rathmullan declared Peruvian Territory for World Cup

first_img Twitter When Ireland failed to qualify for the World Cup, the community of Rathmullan, County Donegal, didn’t stay disappointed for too long.They just dusted themselves down and decided to join their parish priest Fr Martin Collum, in adopting Peru as their home nation.It’s a story that started with a chat outside mass one Sunday morning with local man and Rathmullan Celtic Chairman, Cormac Fagan, and will continue this Saturday, when four VIPs from the Peruvian Embassy in Dublin will travel to Rathmullan to raise the Peruvian flag in a World Cup opening ceremony at the village putting green.After the playing of the Peruvian national anthem, ‘Arriba Peru’ will ring out, and then they will watch Peru’s opening match against Denmark in the Beachcomber Bar on the banks of Lough Swilly.The White Harte and Big Paddy’s will be the venues for the other two first-round matches.Fr Martin worked in Peru for 14 years, and is a great supporter of Allianza Lima – the oldest team in the Peruvian first division, and his hero is Allianza Lima and Peru’s greatest-ever player, Teofila Cubillas.Dubbed the ‘Pele of Peru’, Cubillas starred in three World Cups, scoring an amazing total of 10 goals. He’s also Peru’s top scorer, with 26 goals for his country.Speaking to Highland Radio news, Fr.
