It was packed to over-flowing with people from all the congregations in Lusaka and some from as far as field as Lake Malawi Diocese. There was music of all kinds – choirs, music groups, brass bands – and guests from the diplomatic community in Lusaka as well as all the 15 bishops of the Province.In welcoming the congregation Archbishop Albert Chama described it as “a great day for the Province” stressing that they had the privilege next year of “welcoming the entire Anglican Church to Zambia”.The general secretary of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, preaches at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka during the launch service for next year’s ACC-16 meeting. Photo: Michael Ade/Anglican Communion OfficeIn his sermon Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, thanked the congregation for “accepting the challenge to help with the preparations for the 16th Council of the ACC”. He went on to tell them that “come April 2016 we shall all be here!” As he experienced the exuberant joy expressed in the service he said that he would tell all those coming to the ACC “to come with their dancing shoes” to great whoops of delight from the congregation.During the service a group of nine children offered a poem, written specifically for the occasion, on love. It was delivered with dramatic energy and two lines seemed to capture the atmosphere of the service, “love is never love until it is given away” and ended with the message to us all, “let love lead the Anglican Communion!”The launch itself came towards the end of the service. In a video message the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby told the congregation that he was looking forward to being with them as the ACC was again hosted in Africa. He emphasised that he was wanting to hear the voice of the youth who are meeting prior to the ACC.He also asked the congregation to do two things in preparation. To pray that “we encounter Christ afresh” and that this “will have an effect on the whole Anglican Communion”. He also challenged the congregation to be “very open with us” and “share what it is like to live as Anglican Christians in this part of the world.”Young people dance during the launch service in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka for next year’s ACC-16 meeting. Photo: Michael Ade/Anglican Communion OfficeA message was read from Bishop James Tengatenga, the Chair of the ACC, expressing his excitement about the ACC coming to Lusaka, a province he has formerly served in. He went on to ask that those involved might be “energized for all the preparation (being made) for us for April next year.”The launch was completed by the cutting of a large cake before a large number of purple and white balloons were released and floated slowly to the high ceiling of the Cathedral.The thoughts behind this launch service were summed up in the special prayer written for the day:Release your direction for your church,That in launching this Consultative Council,All things shall work to God’s praise and glory.To that the congregation at the Cathedral said “Amen!” Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ center_img In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Children, Anglican Communion, Posted Nov 30, 2015 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Comments are closed.

Ex capellán de Virginia Tech busca lecciones para la recuperación…

first_img Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York El Rdo. Scott Russell, capellán episcopal en la Universidad de Rutgers, habla el 21 de abril acerca de su experiencia como ministro universitario durante la masacre de 2007 en Virginia Tech. Él habló en un taller del simposio Obispos Unidos Contra la Violencia Armada en Chicago. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Chicago, Illinois] Cuando un pistolero mató a tiros a 28 de sus condiscípulos, a cuatro profesores y a sí mismo hace diez años en el campus del Instituto Tecnológico de Virginia [conocido popularmente como Virginia Tech] el Rdo. Scott Russell se enteró por un noticiero.Los televisores del Aeropuerto Internacional JFK en Nueva York transmitían aterradores detalles del suceso y Russell, que se encontraba en ese momento en la aduana al regreso de unas vacaciones en Alemania, se quedó paralizado al enterarse de los sucesos de Blacksburg, Virginia, donde él era rector asociado de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo  [Christ Episcopal Church] y capellán universitario.“Me quedé allí congelado frente a la pantalla del televisor”, recordaba Russell. Canceló sus planes de visitar a un tío en Nueva York y, en lugar de eso, condujo durante varias horas rumbo a su casa para estar con los estudiantes y feligreses, al objeto de ayudarles a enfrentarse con las secuelas de una tragedia impensable.Russell, de 49 años, compartió esas experiencias el 21 de abril con los asistentes a “La impía trinidad: la convergencia del racismo, la pobreza y la violencia armada”, un simposio de tres días que [la agrupación] Obispos Unidos Contra la Violencia Armada celebró en la Escuela Luterana de Teología en Chicago. Su taller también se centró en cómo las comunidades se recuperan de tales tragedias y en el papel de los líderes religiosos en ayudar a que los sobrevivientes y las familias y amigos de las víctimas se recuperen.“Había mucha confusión y pánico”, dijo Russell —que ahora es capellán de la Universidad de Rutgers en New Brunswick, Nueva Jersey— a un puñado de personas que asistieron a su primer taller en el congreso.Cuando llegó de regreso a Blacksburg, los feligreses de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo lo recibieron llorando. Él se reunió y oró con los estudiantes que frecuentaban el centro estudiantil episcopal de la congregación y comenzó a ayudarles a poner en orden sus ideas: ¿Qué hacemos ahora? ¿Dónde vamos a partir de  aquí? La vigilia con velas de la universidad, que tuvo lugar al día siguiente de la masacre, ayudó a unir a la comunidad del campus.“Una manera de decirles a esas personas en shock, no se aíslen. Congréguense”, dijo Russell durante el taller, haciendo notar que la gran multitud que asistía a la vigilia en un momento prorrumpió a cantar el himno del futbol de la escuela.Pero las emociones seguían estando a flor de piel. Una de las estudiantes episcopales conocía a cinco alumnos y dos profesores asesinados en las aulas. “Ella estaba sencillamente fuera de sí, sólo pensando que fácilmente podía haber estado en una de esas clases”, dijo Russell.La constante cobertura noticiosa no ayudaba al proceso del duelo. Muchos de los afectados por la masacre llegaron a sentirse molestos por la presencia de los medios de prensa, encontrándolos invasivos, y respiraron aliviados cuando, justo a tiempo, la cobertura de uno de los mayores asesinatos en masa del país dejó de ser noticia de primera plana.Aun fuera del punto de mira nacional, a Blacksburg le resultaba difícil avenirse a lo ha sucedido, y uno de los mensajes subyacentes en la presentación de Russell fue que algunas de las lecciones más duras para él y la treintena aproximada de capellanes [de la universidad] se centró en cómo los supervivientes lidian con el dolor a su propio ritmo. Eso es algo que los capellanes y ministros deben tener en cuenta a la hora de brindar cuidado pastoral, explicó Russell.La universidad canceló las clases la semana de la masacre y algunos estudiantes viajaron a sus casas para estar con sus familias. Cuando regresaron, muchos de ellos estaban listos para seguir adelante, pero otros que se habían quedado seguían inmersos en la tristeza, expuso Russell.“Como pastor, tengo que dar ayuda allí donde se encuentran”, le dijo a Episcopal News Service en una anterior entrevista telefónica.Él también aprendió a apreciar que algunas personas expresan su dolor de formas que al principio parecen chocantes. Contó de  confrontar a un estudiante en la Casa Cantórbery [Canterbury House] contigua a la iglesia a quien podía oírse participando en un videojuego de disparos. Otro estudiante le dijo a Russell que estaba teniendo dificultades para dormir porque seguía presionado por sus estudios de postgrado, pero [también] estaba preocupado por la masacre.En ambos casos, contó Russell, él habló con los estudiantes sobre la manera en que estaban lidiando con el trauma y se cercioró de hacerles seguimiento con más conversaciones, de manera que ellos supieran que no estaban solos.Russell y otros capellanes aprendieron también que una matanza puede provocar reacciones opuestas. Algunos estudiantes y miembros de la facultad a quienes molestaba la preponderancia de las armas de fuego antes de la masacre de Virginia Tech sintieron robustecida su oposición a las armas, afirmó Russell, pero las opiniones de unos cuantos estudiantes tomaron el rumbo contrario, a favor de las autorizaciones de portar armas ocultas y de permitir que los estudiantes llevaran armas al aula como protección.El Rdo. Scott Russell describe las tensiones en Blacksburg, Virginia, sobre si incluir a Cho Seung-Hui cuando se pasara lista a las victimas de la masacre. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.Como en las otras masacres, otro elemento polarizador era el pistolero mismo. Cho Seung-Hui, de 23 años, era un estudiante del último año en Virginia Tech con un historial de trastornos mentales y quien le había hecho comentarios suicidas a sus compañeros de cuarto en el pasado.Después de la matanza, en la iglesia episcopal de Cristo se leyeron los nombres de las víctimas en el oficio. Cho había sido alumno de una de las feligresas y ella pidió que incluyeran su nombre. En un oficio, eso suscitó fuertes objeciones de otro de los feligreses que estaba horrorizado de que Chao fuera recordado de la misma manera que sus víctimas. Algunos supervivientes prefieren no mencionar nunca al pistolero, mientras otros quieren entender por qué se tornó violento.Russell reconoció estas diferencias individuales con cuidado, pero también intento enmarcar el asunto dentro de los valores religiosos.“En la tradición episcopal y anglicana, oramos por los que han muerto”, dijo Russell  durante su presentación. ¿Discriminaremos por lo que ellos han hecho?La tensión sobre ese asunto continuó ese año. Russell predicó un sermón en el otoño acerca del perdón, aludiendo a Cho y la masacre. Después un estudiante se le acercó enojado, pero ese era el mensaje que Russell quería con sus fieles oyeran.Los clérigos también necesitan apoyo a raíz de importantes masacres. Russell dijo que a él y a algunos de sus colegas ministros también les brindaron consejería, y apoyo incluso de parte de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo.Las cicatrices del 16 de abril de 2007 puede que nunca lleguen a sanar del todo. A Russell lo invadieron los recuerdos de ese día  cuando se enteró de la masacre ocurrida el año pasado en un centro nocturno de Orlando, donde un pistolero mató a 49 personas e hirió a 53.Russell se fue de Blacksburg en 2013 y se convirtió en rector de una congregación cerca de Pittsburgh, la ciudad donde fue ordenado en 2002. No obstante, él aún se sentía llamado al ministerio universitario y aceptó con entusiasmo la capellanía de Rutgers el año pasado. Esta semana, asistió a los oficios en Virginia Tech para conmemorar el décimo aniversario de la masacre.Russell asistió este mes a ceremonias en Blacksburg, Virginia, para conmemorar los diez años de la matanza. Foto de Scott Russell.Su experiencia en Virginia Tech lo ha dejado sensible a amenazas potenciales, consciente de que la violencia insensata puede estallar en cualquier momento. También ha ayudado a definir su sentido de misión como cristiano y como capellán universitario.“Aliento a la gente a nunca dejar de mirar a los que se quedan fuera, a los que están al margen —no sólo porque podrían tornarse violentos, sino porque es donde se encuentra, creo yo, nuestro quehacer fundamental”, dijo Russell a ENS. “Siempre tengo presente que Cristo les predicó a los marginales”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Preserving the existing vegetation was a requirement of the owners and therefore the only way to create additional construction space was the demolition of a small laundry. Thus, the location of the new building was defined.Save this picture!© Vivi SpacoSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Vivi SpacoThe property has a sandy soil and therefore the structural engineers suggested a flat foundation. The ground floor was built with concrete bricks, the second floor is a metal frame covered by a flat prefabricated concrete slab. Over the roof an irrigated garden was installed. This decision aims to improve the construction’s thermal performance and an energy consumption reduction with HVAC, as the climate in the region is very hot.Save this picture!© Vivi SpacoSustainable and certified wood is highly appreciated by the owners and was used in many ways. The wood floor of the intermediate pavement is mounted over wood beams., the vertical “brise” surrounding the entire second floor is made with wood slats that protect the balcony from the sun and wood has also been used in the manufacture of all frames, furniture and other finishes.

In this way, the new building establishes a resonance with the place and with the previous projects.Save this picture!© Moritz BernoullyThe building is oriented to the south and built by the means of a punctual structure of rigid frames and concrete segments. We also combined brick partition walls to play with the scale, proportions and the neighbouring buildings. We use lattices and vegetation that filter the views towards the boundaries but allow the passage of air. It is through transitional spaces, the succession of voids and masses and through compact but diverse volumes that the three buildings respond to the scale and character of the street.

Supreme Court set to hear critical Louisiana abortion case

first_imgDNY59/iStock(BATON ROUGE, La.) — Four years after striking down a Texas law it said created an “undue burden” on abortion access, the Supreme Court is poised to take up a similar challenge.June Medical Services v. Russo (previously v. Gee) is a challenge from Louisiana abortion providers to a 2014 state law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges with a nearby hospital. Hospital admitting privileges are an agreement between a doctor and a hospital that allows a patient to go that hospital if they need urgent care.It may not sound like an arduous requirement, but the plaintiff argues that the stipulation, if enforced, would effectively eliminate abortion access throughout the state.Currently, according to attorneys from the Center for Reproductive Rights arguing for June Medical, there are two abortion providers with admitting privileges in Louisiana. But attorneys say that if the law were enforced, there would likely be only one left.“These kinds of laws are completely constructed as a way to making it even more difficult or impossible for abortion clinics to operate in these jurisdictions,” Kimberly Mutcherson, co-dean and law professor at Rutgers Law School, told ABC News.The Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments for this case on Wednesday.This law may sound familiar.In 2016, the Supreme Court ruled that a virtually identical law in Texas was unconstitutional in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, saying the law created an “undue burden” on abortion access.Politicians enacted that law with the stated intention of improving patients’ health benefits, but evidence cited in the subsequent Supreme Court case showed that since abortion is considered a safe, non-surgical procedure that very rarely requires hospital treatment, hospital admitting privileges did not improve outcomes — but, rather, caused abortion clinics to close as doctors could not obtain those privileges.“In our view, the record contains sufficient evidence that the admitting-privileges requirement led to the closure of half of Texas’ clinics, or thereabouts,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in the 2016 opinion. “Those closures meant fewer doctors, longer waiting times, and increased crowding.”In fact, abortion providers say, the infrequent rate at which abortion providers send patients to hospitals makes it difficult for those physicians to gain admitting privileges, because hospitals have little incentive to enter into agreements that are rarely utilized. Additionally, hospitals face a disincentive to offer privileges because the stigma of abortion could expose them to criticism and protests. Finally, say advocates, the necessity of such agreements is itself questionable, as hospitals, by nature, accept patients who show up, with or without a doctor agreement.The Louisiana attorney general in a February statement rejected the idea that providers have difficulty obtaining admitting privileges and claimed that their law “does not force clinic closures.”In the Texas case, which also involved another stipulation requiring facilities where abortions are provided to meet the requirements of an ambulatory surgical center, the Supreme Court created a precedent that laws like Texas’ that “do little or nothing for health, but rather strew impediments to abortion cannot survive judicial inspection,” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in a concurring opinion, referencing a lower court case.“We have found nothing in Texas’ record evidence that shows that, compared to prior law (which required a ‘working arrangement’ with a doctor with admitting privileges), the new law advanced Texas’ legitimate interests in protecting women’s health,” Breyer wrote.Louisiana state Sen. Katrina Jackson, a Democrat who proposed the Louisiana law, has repeatedly referred to it as “a women’s health piece of legislation.” ABC News could not reach Jackson for comment.So why are admitting privileges back at the Supreme Court?The Louisiana law, Act 620, was signed in 2014, a year after Texas’ was signed. In 2016, the Supreme Court ruled Texas’ law unconstitutional. In April 2017, a district court struck down Louisiana’s, referring to the Supreme Court opinion.But the state appealed that decision, and in September 2018, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals surprisingly reversed the opinion, approving Louisiana’s law.“The lawyer in me was flabbergasted, because the Fifth Circuit did things that even law students know appeals courts aren’t supposed to do,” TJ Tu, a co-counsel on the case for the Center for Reproductive Rights, told ABC News. “The Fifth Circuit did not faithfully apply Supreme Court precedent, and just as bad, the Fifth Circuit completely disregarded the trial court’s factual findings.”The Fifth Circuit refused to rehear the case in January 2019, and in February 2019, the Supreme Court stepped in, putting a temporary hold on Louisiana’s Act 620. In October 2019, the Supreme Court announced they were picking up the case.Tu argued the Supreme Court “had to take on this case” because the Fifth Circuit’s ruling was “mind-boggling.”“Even if the Supreme Court didn’t want to wade into the abortion debate this year, the Fifth Circuit really left the court in a difficult position with very limited options, because the Supreme Court had to take the case to make clear that its precedents should be the law of the land,” Tu told ABC News.A last-minute twist in the case.In May 2019, after years of litigation, the state of Louisiana threw in a new twist. In a request to the Supreme Court, the state argued that abortion providers and clinics should not be legally allowed to even challenge the law in the first place.The state is questioning what’s called “third-party standing,” which means that a third party — like an abortion provider — is allowed to argue on behalf of the person actually impacted — a patient.While Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that declared abortion a protected right, included an individual patient challenging the law, every major abortion case since then has been presented by providers and clinics like Whole Woman’s Health, Planned Parenthood or June Medical Services.“There is little evidence that their patients’ interests actually align with Plaintiffs’ position that the burdens of such protections exceed their value,” the state wrote in the petition. “On the contrary, undisputed record evidence (including of Plaintiffs’ poor safety record, inadequate credentialing practices, and questionable efforts to undermine the law at issue) shows Plaintiffs are directly adverse to their patients’ interests. It is hard to imagine a worse case for third-party standing.”Should the Supreme Court make a ruling on this portion of the case, it could have major implications for all future abortion litigation. Abortion-rights advocates say it may be difficult to find individuals to challenge abortion laws given the limited time one has to get an abortion and the risks of being targeted by anti-abortion advocates.A changed court since 2016.The Louisiana admitting privileges law may look similar to Texas’ law, but the look of the Supreme Court has changed since 2016.In the Whole Woman’s Health case, Breyer with the majority was joined by the more liberal-leaning justices — Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. But to get the majority, they needed one more vote, and they got that from Justice Anthony Kennedy, who during his tenure represented the swing vote on abortion cases.But following Kennedy’s retirement in 2018 and the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016, their replacements — Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — are seen as more conservative. As a result, the Supreme Court no longer has an abortion swing vote, although many observers believe that Chief Justice John Roberts could take on that role.Tu, for his part, believes that Roberts at least will be moved by the idea of not overturning past precedent.Mutcherson, from Rutgers, however, found it “ominous” that the new court took on the case.“To re-litigate that … so close to when it was had in Whole Woman’s Health doesn’t suggest that the goal is just to reinforce what they said in that case,” she told ABC News. “It suggests that they want to either weaken Whole Woman’s Health or weaken Roe.”What are the actual stakes of this case?An amicus or “friend of the court” brief filed in January on behalf of 207 members of Congress — all but two of whom are Republicans — asked the Supreme Court to consider using this case to reconsider or overrule Roe v. Wade, stating that the 1973 decision is “haphazard.”Notwithstanding this brief, however, abortion-rights advocates say that June Medical Services v. Russo does not challenge Roe.“Roe v. Wade is not directly on the chopping block in our case. But people really shouldn’t take much comfort in that,” Tu told ABC News, arguing that should Louisiana’s admitting privileges law be allowed to stand, the right to an abortion there would effectively be taken away, making Roe “a theoretical right” in Louisiana rather than a real one.Mutcherson said she is “significantly worried” this Supreme Court would say this kind of law is acceptable, which, she said, would also reinforce the idea that abortion is unsafe — which statistics show it is not.“Without overturning Roe at all,” she said, the Supreme Court approving laws like this would “make abortion access in this country even more fraught,” especially for vulnerable populations like women of color, poor and undocumented women.Tu believes the most likely outcome is for the Supreme Court to avoid the third-party question, and he is hopeful the justices will stand behind the precedent they set in 2016 with Whole Woman’s Health.“The stakes are nevertheless extraordinarily high for women in states like Louisiana, where effectively, abortion access will be eradicated,” he said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Two years on, 48-hour limit is being ignored

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Two years on, 48-hour limit is being ignoredOn 9 Jan 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The Working Time directive has proved largely ineffectual since it was introduced more than two years ago, according to new research.A survey by the CIPD reveals that 60 per cent of people who worked more than 48 hours a week when they were first interviewed in July 1998 were still doing so.The findings showed that about a third of those questioned were now working within the 48-hour limit, but only 2 per cent of people surveyed had their hours reduced as a direct result of the regulations.But the research did reveal that although most employees interviewed still worked beyond the regulations’ limit, those in paid work have reduced their working week by about six hours on average – from 58 hours in July 1998 to 52.Mike Emmott, adviser on employee relations for the CIPD, said, “I don’t think many people have reduced their hours as a result of the regulations and that was always to be expected. “Managers and people with senior responsibility will work longer hours because it is in their own interests, they need to be seen to be performing and they will get the rewards. “On the other hand, people who do not feel they earn enough will work longer hours because they are on a low hourly rate. They will continue to work long hours as long as their income depends on it.”Emmott thought the Working Time Regulations had helped to raise the issue of sustained long-hours working, but he said there would have to be a change in the work culture in the UK before real progress was made. Paul Sellers, policy officer for the TUC, said one of the main reasons so many people were still working beyond the 48-hour limit was because of the opt-out clause that allowed employees to voluntarily extend their hours.He said, “When the opt-out comes up for renewal, the Government should not seek to extend it. The opt-out is allowing people to be persuaded to work long hours. “On the other side of the coin, long hours are not associated with high productivity. It is well known that productivity falls off the longer you work. People should be working smarter hours, not longer hours.”By Ben Willmott Comments are closed. last_img read more
