VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Associate Rector Columbus, GA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Archbishop of Wales Barry Morgan. Photo: Church in Wales[Anglican Communion News Service] The Bishops of the Church in Wales have responded to a year of debates and consultations on same-sex marriage within the Province by concluding that the Church “is not yet ready to allow or bless same-sex marriage”; but they said that “the debate is not over” and stressed that the Church must be a place where gay and lesbian people can be “honest and open, respected and affirmed.”The Bench of Bishops made their statement in a joint pastoral letter issued at the start of the Province’s Governing Body meeting, taking place this week in Llandudno, North Wales.In their letter, the bishops commit to working for a Church in which gay and lesbian people are “fully affirmed as equal disciples” and to praying with and for them; and they apologise to gay and lesbian people for the persecution and mistreatment they have endured at the hands of the Church.They commit themselves to providing a safe place within the Church for all gay and lesbian people.“We are not ready, as a Church, to take the step of authorising same-sex marriage,” the Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, said. “There is no point in bringing forward a Bill for it to fail.“That I know will be a disappointment to those who voted for change and will be a deep disappointment to same sex couples within the Church in Wales who long for the opportunity to make their vows in one of our churches.”While rejecting the idea of a Bill to bring to allow same-sex marriages to be conducted in Church in Wales buildings; or for a formal authorised liturgical service of blessing for civil same-sex marriages; the bishops have released a series of prayers which may be said with a couple following the celebration of a civil partnership or civil marriage.“We, as bishops, feel that this is the right thing to do at this time,” Dr Morgan said. “I realise that some people will regard these prayers as too little too late and others will regard them as a step too far.“No one is compelled to use them, but they are provided for those who would like to do so. These prayers do not constitute a service of blessing.”The full text of the letter from the Church in Wales’ Bench of Bishops:One of the most contentious issues for Christians in our day has been the question of how the Church responds to those attracted to the same gender who seek the blessing of the Church upon the committed partnerships they form.Over the last eighteen months, we have conducted a wide consultation in Governing Body and with the dioceses to explore whether the faithful of the Church in Wales felt it would be appropriate to acknowledge same sex unions in Church, by offering a Blessing, or even permitting the marriage of same sex couples in Church. Given that the civil law of the realm has now been changed to permit marriage of same sex couples, many see this as a natural next step.The results of the consultation have been very varied: in some dioceses there was a strong voice for the status quo, in others a majority who wanted to see change. In the subsequent debate in Governing Body, it became clear that although a majority of members supported change, there was certainly no consensus, and any move to introduce changes in canon law would not meet the required two thirds majority of Governing Body, voting in houses, to enable such changes. Furthermore, any change to the teaching of the Church on Marriage, or the authorisation of any blessing of these unions in the life of the Church, would depend on legislation by bill procedure, which requires such enhanced majorities to take effect.Since the conclusion of our consultation, the Primates of the Anglican Communion have also met in Canterbury in January of this year. The issue of the Church’s ministry to gay and lesbian persons was at the centre of their agenda, especially since The Episcopal Church (of the United States) has taken steps to amend their marriage canon to remove references to the gender of the couple.The Primates condemned homophobic prejudice and violence and affirmed their commitment again to offer pastoral care and loving service irrespective of sexual orientation. They also rejected criminal sanctions against same-sex attracted people. They recognised that the Christian Church, including Anglicans, has often acted in a way towards people on the basis of their sexual orientation that has caused deep hurt. They expressed their profound sorrow and affirmed again that God’s love for every human being is the same, regardless of their sexuality, and that the Church should never by its actions give any other impression.Nevertheless, they also reasserted the understanding within the Anglican Communion as a whole that marriage is between a man and a woman in faithful, lifelong union. They indicated that they believed that any move away from this understanding is considered by many of them as a departure from the mutual accountability and interdependence implied through being in relationship with each other in the Anglican Communion.What this all means is that we, as Bishops of the Anglican Communion, mindful of the results of our consultation and the Statement of the Primates of the Anglican Communion, and of all our members, including those who are gay and lesbian, do not feel that we can support at this time a move to change the discipline of the Church in Wales with respect to the teaching on marriage, nor can we permit the celebration of public liturgies of blessing for same sex unions.Nevertheless, we acknowledge the gay and lesbian members of our Church as part of our family, and we wish to address them directly:“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,We recognise that you have often been persecuted and ostracized by the Church for your sexuality, that you have been mistreated by the Church, and forced into secrecy and dissimulation by the attitudes of prejudice which you have faced. We deplore such hostility, and welcome and affirm the words of the Primates that condemn homophobic prejudice and violence. We too commit ourselves to offering you the same loving service and pastoral care to which all humanity is entitled, and we commit ourselves to acting to provide a safe space within the Church and within our communities in which you can be honest and open, respected and affirmed.While as a Church we remain unable to bless the committed partnerships you form in marriage or in civil partnership, yet we commit ourselves as bishops to work for a Church in which you can be fully affirmed as equal disciples of Jesus Christ or seekers after truth. We will pray with you and for you, that together we may seek God’s blessing on our lives, and for faithful discipleship.”Since 2005, the Bench of Bishops has acknowledged that there are a range of views with respect to homosexuality, which have to be recognized as “honest and legitimate differences” within the diversity of opinion in the Church in Wales.Given that diversity in the Church in Wales, and our commitment to affirm the place of gay and lesbian disciples within the Church, we believe that it is appropriate to offer prayers in response to the pastoral need of those gay and lesbian persons who are making profound commitments to friendship or partnership. With this pastoral letter, we offer prayers which we believe are suitable for those who are marking a committed relationship. Whilst we do not prescribe their use, where they are found suitable or helpful, we are happy to commend them.The issues around human sexuality that are being debated in the Church will not go away, and the pain and tensions experienced in the debate are not over. We do believe however that we are called to live in love and charity with one another, whatever our experience or convictions on this issue, and we call upon all followers of Jesus Christ to respond with grace and as much accommodation as possible to all our brothers and sisters in Christ, including those who are gay or lesbian.May the Lord bless his Church with such love and understanding that we may always walk in his ways of mercy.The prayers released by the bishops can be downloaded from theChurch in Wales website.

Hoogvliet / VMX Architects

first_imgCopySave this picture!© Christian RichtersText description provided by the architects. Many of the post-war neighbourhoods in the Netherlands are currently being ‘restructured’. Hoogvliet, a satellite town near Rotterdam, is one of them. The restructuring process implies many housing blocks are replaced by contemporary ones, often by erasing typical spatial qualities of post war urbanism such as the open building structure and the abundance of greenery. VMX’s goal was to reinforce these existing qualities by a contemporary design. Save this picture!© Christian RichtersThe plan consists of 80 low-rise houses and 60 high-rise apartments for families and elderly people on top of a shopping centre.  The starting point of the commissioner was that the existing houses had to be demolished and replaced by better and larger houses. However, the number of houses had to remain the same. Also various mature trees at the location, the long sight lines between the buildings, and the amount of public greenery should be respected in the new plan.  Save this picture!© Christian RichtersConvinced of the spatial qualities of post war urbanism, VMX re-invents post war qualities by proposing a system of strips of terraced houses linked in a meandering line. The design combines car-parking at ground level, under the terraced houses, with high-quality exterior space for everyone. In addition the meandering shape ensures an interlocking with the park.  Save this picture!© Christian RichtersThe narrow high-rise volume – ten storeys high – is placed on a pedestal of shops. This way generous galleries open up the apartments and at the same time function as luxurious private outdoor spaces.  In its materialization the design harmonizes with the surrounding architecture and simultaneously radiates a certain wealth and optimism, using green and orange colored glass, carved stone and perforated aluminium.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessRegeneration of Part of the Piraeus Port Authority (OLP) Coastal Zone Competition En…ArticlesFuensanta Nieto & Enrique Sobejano Lecture at Portland State UniversityArticlesProject locationAddress:Alverstraat, Hoogvliet rotterdamLocation to be used only as a reference.

Trump pushes ANWR drilling – what will Biden do?

first_imgDefend the Sacred Alaska — Arctic Refuge rally, Fairbanks, Alaska, March 7, 2018.Since Nov. 7, corporate media has focused on President Donald Trump’s refusal to accept his election defeat, labeling his actions “damaging to [the myth of bourgeois] democracy.” Yet one of Trump’s few concrete actions since the election — speeding up controversial oil and gas drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) — has received scant media attention even though it is more dangerous.Right after the election, the Trump administration increased harmful seismic testing in the ANWR. Now the president is rushing to auction off drilling rights to fossil fuel companies before President-elect Joe Biden takes office, despite strong opposition from environmentalists and Indigenous communities in the region. (tinyurl.com/y6myshsz)Since taking office in 2017, the White House has reversed or removed over 100 environmental protections and regulations designed to limit climate change and protect air and water. One of his first priorities was opening up the ANWR for potential development.In December 2017, Congress passed the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” which granted the Trump administration authority to sell oil and gas leases in the refuge after a 40-year fight to prevent drilling in ANWR. The legislation opened the Arctic coast for potential development. Trump is now in a mad scramble to get sales done.Major oil spill could devastate Indigenous landsThe acrimonious battle over the ANWR is one of the longest-running environmental fights in U.S. history, dating back to 1980 when Congress passed the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. While establishing the ANWR as a new national wilderness area, the act left it open to future gas exploration.The impending auction of drilling rights pits Indigenous communities with differing interests in the area against each other — a situation oil and gas companies have long exploited. Some in the Inupiat Tribe see drilling as an economic windfall, potentially bringing jobs and infrastructure funds to very impoverished communities. For other Inupiat tribal members, and especially for the Gwich’in Nation, who are Indigenous people reliant on the annual migration of a herd of over 160,000 porcupine caribou through the region, it is an attack on their very existence. Decades after the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill released 42 million liters of crude oil and contaminated 1,236.5 miles (1,990 kilometers) of shoreline in Alaska’s Prince William Sound, the environmental impact is still felt. If a major disaster — an oil spill or gas leak — were to result from drilling in the ANWR, it would devastate the only homeland for many Indigenous people.Who stands to benefit? The multibillion-dollar energy industry clearly has a friend in Trump. Since taking office, he lifted bans on oil and gas exploration, including in the ANWR and other parts of Alaska, in coastal waters around the U.S. and in areas formerly protected as national monuments. Trump has assisted fossil fuel infrastructure projects including the Keystone XL pipeline to bring tar sands crude oil from Canada, the Dakota Access pipeline to move oil from North Dakota oil fields and the Atlantic Coast pipeline that would transport natural gas from the Marcellus Shale in West Virginia. (brookings.edu, Aug. 4)Now, despite years of protests, and with an energy industry facing financial decline due to overproduction plus the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration is speeding up the process to sell ANWR leases. On Nov. 17, the Bureau of Land Management opened 32 plots covering 1.5 million acres of the North Slope along the ANWR for drilling. Oil companies have 30 days to submit their lease bids for an auction that could occur just days before Biden takes office Jan. 20.Even with the bids, it is not guaranteed that the environmentally dangerous drilling will take place. A number of big banks, including five out of the six biggest U.S. banks, say they will not finance new drilling in the Arctic. (Highnorthnews.com, Nov. 20) It is possible that Biden will block or reverse the sales.What path for Biden?During his run for the White House, Joe Biden voiced opposition to drilling in the ANWR. He also promised to rejoin the Paris [Climate] Agreement on “day one.” However, the Democratic National Committee platform stopped short of opposing fracking for fossil fuels and failed to embrace more progressive calls for immediate climate change actions.In fact, the Paris Agreement has proven very ineffective in limiting global warming. During the 2015 Paris Climate Summit, the U.S. blocked any binding language. And it continued a provision from the 1998 Kyoto Accords that explicitly guaranteed the U.S. military exemption from any international climate agreement. With deadly emissions greater than the entire output of some industrialized nations, the Pentagon is the largest producer of greenhouse gases in the world.Environmental activists are raising concern over Ernest Moniz, Secretary of Energy in President Barack Obama’s administration from 2013 to 2017 and potentially a top contender to lead Biden’s Department of Energy. Moniz, who supports fracking, launched the liquefied natural gas export regime under Obama.  He is currently a director of Southern Company, the second-highest carbon-polluting energy utility in the U.S. (Readsludge.com, Nov. 19)Another potential candidate for Energy Secretary is Arun Majumdar, who served under Moniz. Majumdar, like Moniz, is opposed to stopping fossil fuel extraction. On Nov. 17, Biden named fossil fuel industry advocate Cedric Richmond to a White House liaison position between the business community and climate change activists.Concern over Biden’s “climate advisors” led Indigenous, racial justice and climate activists to stage an occupation outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 19, calling for a corporate-free Cabinet.  Protesters, including Ta’Sina Sapa Win of the Cheyenne River Grassroots Collective, Missouri Congressperson-elect Cori Bush and Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also called for Biden to take immediate climate action and approve the Green New Deal.

Graduates in these disciplines help to drive innovation and enterprise, and have played a significant part in the growth in our economy, particularly in this region,” he said.“It is the quality of our education in these subjects at both second and third level that contributes significantly to attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and provides an active ecosystem for indigenous start-ups here in the mid west.”“Many students are dissuaded from taking up subjects such as maths and chemistry, as there is a perception that they are particularly difficult to master. We at LIT maintain that these subjects open up students to a range of exciting careers, and believe every student should have the best possible chance to excel in these subjects if they so wish,” added Prof Cunnane.“To this end, we are providing free workshops in our Moylish Campus to assist students as they prepare for their leaving cert exams in Mathematics, (ordinary and higher level) and Organic Chemistry.”The free workshops will begin on Tuesday May 8. From 7pm to 9pm, Dr. Maria Sheehan, an experienced chemistry and science teacher, will guide students through questions on Organic Chemistry preparations for the Leaving Certificate papers – both Higher and Ordinary.The Mathematics workshops on May 14 and May 15 will focus on particular strands of the Leaving Certificate curriculum and will be facilitated by Dr Maura Clancy, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at LIT.The Mathematics workshop on May 14 will focus on higher level maths and more specifically Strand 5 Section 2 (calculus), while on May 15 the Mathematics (ordinary level) workshop will look at Strand 4 (algebra).Pre-booking is essential for all three workshops, as places are limited.
