These have taken place in the churchyard and have so far included children’s activities, free refreshments, a Prayer Zone, classical music concerts, worship services and performances from Christian entertainers from around the world – such as a Brazilian arts company and an urban dance crew from Paris.The Stratford Churches have also been working alongside Christian organizations at a regional and national level to encourage their congregations to get a feel for the 2012 Games. They have partnered with groups such as Through Faith Missions (TFM), Open Air Campaigners (OAC) and Youth with a Mission (YWAM). Visits and performances from Christian entertainers (like the ones mentioned above) were arranged in conjunction with More Than Gold and Share Jesus International and have been taking place across the country.On an international level, St. John’s Church has also been quite proactive. Home to a multicultural congregation (with around 50 different nationalities represented in its membership) and ideally situated — approximately a mile away from the main Olympic Stadium in Stratford — St John’s has so far welcomed people from a range of nationalities.“We have had a reasonable number of Anglicans from around the world visiting the church so far due to the Olympics,” said the Rev. David Richards, vicar of St. John’s Church since 1990. “The main country has been Kenya because Kenya House has been based in Stratford and we hosted a Kenya Emphasis Night last Saturday.”St. John’s Church has also acted as the official hospitality center for the worldwide Anglican Communion, which according to Richards has helped to “reinforce the international nature of the Anglican Church.” A display, highlighting the work of the Anglican Communion as part of the Ultimate Gold program, has been available to the public.The church has been preparing for the Olympics since the day of the announcement in 2005, and has to date mobilized more than a hundred church members from many different countries to think about ways to engage with their surrounding culture.“Jesus told us to go into the world; now the world is coming to us. We have always had an open door to the local community and to passers-by, now our members are ready to welcome the world, and share our faith with anyone and everyone”, said Richards. “We need to show that the Christian faith is relevant to all cultures”.The ‘Ultimate Gold’ events have been happening from noon until late every day and go on until August 12.

  • South Carolina lawsuit parties agree to temporary injunction

    first_img Rebecca Alford says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Comments (51) [Episcopal News Service] A South Carolina Circuit Court judge Jan. 31 signed a consent order issuing a temporary injunction concerning use of registered diocesan names and marks that are claimed by Bishop Mark Lawrence and other leaders who led some Episcopalians in that state out of the Episcopal Church.The temporary injunction extends a previous temporary restraining order and will remain in effect until Judge Diane S. Goodstein decides differently or rules on an underlying lawsuit begun by Lawrence against the Episcopal Church. All parties to that suit consented to the temporary injunction. However, any party may request a hearing on having the injunction modified or dissolved. Such a request requires 14 days’ notice.A temporary injunction is meant to maintain the status quo and prevent damage or change before the legal questions raised in a lawsuit are answered. After the trial on those issues, the court may issue a permanent injunction or cancel the temporary injunction.Goodstein’s order came a day before a hearing she had scheduled for Feb. 1 to determine if the temporary order should be extended or whether she should impose a temporary injunction.When she imposed the temporary restraining order on Jan. 23, the judge said only Lawrence and 24 other people associated with him could use the diocesan seal as described in its registration with South Carolina Secretary of State, as well as the names “The Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina,” “The Diocese of South Carolina” and “The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina.” Those three titles were registered on Nov. 5, 2010, according to the order.Any other “individual, organization, association or entity” is prevented by both the order and now the injunction from using those marks and seals, Goodstein said.She issued the temporary restraining order three days before a group of people who want to remain in the Episcopal Church held an organizational meeting at Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston.Goodstein’s order required the group to change its name and remove the Diocese of South Carolina’s shield from its materials. And its first item of business on Jan. 26 was to make that name change official in order to act with what attorney Thomas Tisdale called “an abundance of caution, and with the desire to comply” with the order.The group formally agreed to use the name “the Episcopal Church in South Carolina” in place of what Tisdale, elected chancellor later in the meeting, said “we believe is our true and lawful name.”A Jan. 31 notice on the group’s website said that the temporary injunction “is not an unusual development, and it signifies only that these issues remain to be decided at a future time.”On the other hand, the group that maintains it still is the Diocese of South Carolina said after the temporary injunction was issued that the Episcopal Church had decided “not put up a fight.”The temporary injunction is related to the suit that was filed in state circuit court Jan. 4. The action, the original plaintiffs said in a press release at the time, was taken “to protect the diocese’s real and personal property and that of its parishes.”The suit also asked the court to prevent the Episcopal Church from “infringing on the protected marks of the diocese, including its seal and its historical names, and to prevent the church from assuming the diocese’s identity, which was established long before the Episcopal Church’s creation,” according to the press release.Goodstein’s Jan. 23 order made clear that it applied only to the names and seal, and not the other matters alleged in the suit. More information about the lawsuit is here.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. Tags In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 February 1, 2013 at 9:59 pm You said:”My goal is to see my Diocese continue under My bishop in the buildings that generations of my family have founded built and maintained for the purpose they founded built and maintained worshiping as we have been given the ministry. If we can do that, MOST of us lawrencites would be glad to give you the name and seal you want and need for the reasons set forth in your argument. That can tip the tide.” Am I to understand that the goal is to “trade” the name and seal for the property? That hardly seems right. There are many Episcopalians who have attended in their parish from the cradle. Many have generously given of their time, talent and estates to benefit the parish their families attend. Many have donated heavily to maintain these buildings over generations. Are they to just give up these things without any consideration to their own family history because they wish to continue with TEC? The continuing Episcopalians haven’t done anything to deserve that loss. They have continued to follow the leadership of the national church and without any consideration for their historical ties or even the decency of a vote, their churches were taken over by something and someone they disagree with. They are told they are no longer Episcopalian. Without their permission or consent they are now informed they have been disconnected from TEC and they are now another religion. And “Oh, by the way, we are keeping the stuff and you have to go somewhere else if you want to be Episcopalian”. In most cases, it wasn’t that nice. Most have been unceremoniously cast out from their home churches without so much as a “Don’t let the door hit you” and called horrible, ugly names. They have listened to others call the Presiding Bishop a witch, the devil, and disrespected in the most vile and hateful ways. Why? What have these Episcopalians done to deserve such treatment? When did Mark Lawrence become the idol to be worshipped and followed instead of God? Why is property more important than unity? When did the “third leg of the stool” of scripture, tradition and reason get broken off and how will it stand without reason. Being free to have opinions and the ability to think and discuss are hallmarks of being an Episcopalian. Why are parishioners expected now to just sit down and shut up and do as you are told or get out? I was confirmed as a child in my parish. I served my church and pledged and tithed every single week. I have not removed my name from the rolls. I am still a member. But I was asked if I wanted to leave the national church. I was not given a vote. I was not asked how I felt about any of this. I was removed from the email list and parishioners have been told not to talk to me because I wish to remain Episcopalian. I am not over dramatizing. That is really how it has been. Am I supposed to just accept that my church no longer exists? It seems backwards to me that those who want to CONTINUE as Episcopalians in an Episcopalian Parish they have always attended are expected to forfeit their parish to those who want to leave and change everything. “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You” doesn’t have an addendum that says (except for those people) Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET February 1, 2013 at 5:39 pm It is called spin. A majority is “some.” Of course while majority is more accurate, some looks much more favorable to the readers from whom funds will be solicited to fund the battle in SC. February 1, 2013 at 5:45 pm Some of the most violent fights in history have been within the Christian Church. It sounds prudent to find ways to reduce tensions before proceeding to make future decisions, The Church is about grace and not all law and order. Where is God’s grace in the Diocese of South Carolina? The continuing Episcopal Church has an opportunity in its decisions and response to the present situation to be the Church and Love of Jesus Christ. You remail in my prayers.Vance MannAsheville, NC February 4, 2013 at 5:33 pm Mr Kivel, What makes you think they, the traditionalists whom you call “Lawrencites”, would want to return to The Episcopal Church. Some think better no church at all than “TEC”. Rebecca Alford says: February 4, 2013 at 1:56 pm The moral is that when you suspect a candidate for the episcopate is a snake, trust your guts and refuse to approve him… Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY February 1, 2013 at 11:00 pm Change? One needs to look WHO has changed. The Scriptures and BCP sure haven’t. Neither does our faith. Marc Kivel says: Marc Kivel says: Hank Otto says: Hank Otto says: February 1, 2013 at 6:06 pm That sounds good but it is a two way street. Ignoring all of the churches and orthodox congregants that TEC has sued over the past years; and ignoring the fact that when they took their property put it up for sale to any purchaser except the people who they just took the property from, ignoring all of that you are correct. TEC can step forward in a very Christian manor and leave orthodox congregations alone. That may not be the legal approach but you did not reference legality but Christian charity.Where is the Grace in SC. The answer is in the very fact that TEC met in Grace Church. TEC has repeatedly pushed orthodox majority parishes out of their properties across the country. Bishop Lawrence told each church they could align themselves as they please. Grace and a few others stayed with TEC without any interference from the Diocese of SC. That is the Grace of it.You are right though. Now is the time if ever to reduce tensions and hammer out a solution. There is a shred of a possibility that the consent order was entered so the parties could do so behind the scenes. I would not wager on it but it is possible. February 2, 2013 at 12:42 am It reminds me of the monkey caught by a jar. The monkey saw some tid-bits in the bottom of a large jar and reached in to get them. it clasped it greedy hand onto the tid-bits. When the monkey tried to take its hand out of the jar while holding onto to the morsels, it could not remove its hand through the neck of the jar. A man came out of the swamp area and captured the monkey. Why? The monkey was too greedy and had to hang onto what it thought it had.The moral of the story is: TEc might want to let go of it’s “all in” legal strategy on this jar that we call The Diocese OF South Carolina. If it releases, it may survive. If it continues to hold on to what it has always done to get morsels, and loses it’s sovereignty, it may lose it’s freedom to be a national “church” altogether. February 4, 2013 at 2:33 pm Ah, so you’re holding the name and seal subject to release of any claims on property: how very extortionate…a real Jack Iker kinda move…of course he’s not in the Episcopal Church either anymore so no surprise. Personally I think all Christians should give the lawrencians a big round of applause for convincing more folks that religion is all about being self-righteous, money and property centered, and lacking in the capacity to handle disagreement and leaving covenanted community when you don’t get your way….nice work, folks!

Dr. Schori and the TEC refuse to acknowledge that this is possible. John D. Andrews says: Submit a Job Listing February 4, 2013 at 2:18 pm YOu write “If PECDSC, or one of the three earlier disputed dioceses finally prevails and is recognized by the courts as the legitimate Episcopal diocese of South Carolina, TEC as we know it will collapse.” I note that only the insane asylum known as South Carolina has laws which seemingly consistently treat national churches as subsidiary to the local congregations – not surprising as some South Carolinians never learned that being part of a community means sometimes having to not have it your way. But what can you expect from folks who still take enormous pride in starting the Civil War and the resultant death and destruction? To say that I have contempt for mr. lawrence and his followers would be much too mild a sentiment… February 1, 2013 at 9:53 pm He’s where He promised He’d be. His Word. And His Sacraments. Until those of us who consider outselves “Anglican” ditch the new inventions and revisionism and restore the Faith as this church has received it, we’re going to keep asking this question. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC 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 Joseph F Foster says: February 1, 2013 at 5:23 pm I think that TEC is very wise to let these people simmer away with their pettifogging injunctions when it is obvious to even the most disinterested observer that the new Bishop is the lawfully appointed Bishop of the diocese whose name we dare not speak. It is a farcical situation and tells a clear story to those whose eyes are wide open . TEC should continue to remain at a safe distance until the time is right to step in.MikeLondon England. Marc Kivel says: February 2, 2013 at 8:13 am My dear brothers in Christ, Hank Yarbrough and Hank Otto, are still talking about Law, not Paul’s New Testament idea of GRACE. Grace is not about winning nor is it about seeking to be right nor is it about creating wonderful arguments. Grace is more concerned about staying in relationship than being right. Can we trust that together in our relationship with Christ and one another, there will be a new day, a glorious future? Let’s hang together.Vance Mann Marc Kivel says: February 1, 2013 at 7:33 pm I have enjoyed your posts. They are well thought out and generally well argued. (A tad of unnecessary sarcasm from time to time but I can hardly hold that against you. I actually liked “lawrencite”. Rather may catch on like Franciscan Dominican or Augustinian but I digress). We are on other sides of the argument to be sure. We do not agree on much.If I understand your posting I think we are in complete agreement. I do not want to see TEC destroyed. Not out of altruism. It is not my goal to see TEC go down. My goal is to see my Diocese continue under My bishop in the buildings that generations of my family have founded built and maintained for the purpose they founded built and maintained worshiping as we have been given the ministry. If we can do that, MOST of us lawrencites would be glad to give you the name and seal you want and need for the reasons set forth in your argument. That can tip the tide. We are not the sheep being led as many TEC people suggest. In SC in think even von Rosenberg will soon agree that the flock will eventually start hearing the Shepherd.A compromise can be worked out and it can be worked out in a win win manner that will set a course for inexpensive resolutions nationwide that will strengthen TECs mission and give it the institutional security tat you correctly note that it needs at he same time affording us he same and if the purple people have their wits to even figure out a way to stay in communion with one anotherBig challenge but it can be done This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 February 2, 2013 at 11:23 am A sad situation indeed. However, after the state process is done this will go to the federal level, and at the federal circuit level it will rule by precedent in the fourth circuit, which has already ruled in favor of TEC in such cases.

Rector Shreveport, LA walter combs says: Lisa Fox says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY February 4, 2013 at 1:47 pm It would be better if the Episcopal Church simply excommunicated the Lawrencians and broke off relations with any Anglican church which recognized them given Mr. Lawrence’s lying to obtain the episcopate… February 1, 2013 at 4:40 pm I am a little bit puzzled by the tone, in this and other ENS stories, of the phrasing of statements regarding those who decided to leave the Episcopal Church. This story refers to Bishop Lawrence and other leaders who “led some Episcopalians” out of the church, seeming to imply that those who left were a random group of Lawrence followers, when, in fact, the diocesan decision to leave was ratified at a regularly-called convention on Nov. 17 by delegates chosen by the vestries of a majority of parishes, and by a majority of the clergy. It was a very orderly–and completely open–meeting, which I attended working as a journalist. Regardless of what one thinks of their decision, it was an action made at a Diocesan Convention, not a departure by “some people” following Lawrence. David W. Stowell says: February 2, 2013 at 6:11 am Rebecca, thank you for this poignant note. No one could have said it better. The comfort that you and many others like you can take is that you are not alone. There are many others like like you, including my daughter in Florence SC, and a larger body in SC and the nation. What happened in Florence is that the Episcopalians had to leave their own church, where some had been members for many, many years. This was through no fault of their own. They were innocent victims, sad but resolute. They have since made a strong church of their own committed to God and to the Episcopal Church. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ronald J. Caldwell says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel February 1, 2013 at 5:50 pm I agree that the case law points toward a win for Bishop Lawrence’s Diocese. I think people are making too much out of the consent order. The only thing that can be deduced from that is that TEC has decided not to fight that battle at that time. They have not thrown in the towel. BUT as you say the case law that will control the end result is quite unfavorable to TECs position. Thank goodness for the SC Supreme Court!

Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs February 1, 2013 at 7:36 pm Mr. Malone is correct. This article appears very biased, as the active communicants in the Diocese did not take this decision lightly. More than half of the Diocese’s churches and their communicants have made a stand with their Bishop. We have spent more than three years making every effort to avoid the current situation. Speaking for myself, I made my decision only after an exhaustive study of scripture and hours in prayer. While I believe that everyone is entitled to the same rights under civil law, there are strict limitations to what is allowed under ecclesiastical law. I am not willing to defy the scriptures or to sit silently as those in authority do so and flaunt their actions. While Katharine Jefferts Schori is no longer my Presiding Bishop, I will continue to pray for her and TEC in its open defiance of scripture.The slant presented in this article makes it apparent that the Presiding Bishop and her staff of writers appear bent on maintaining their current position regardless of the consequences to themselves and the communicants of TEC. This stand in the South Carolina courts will be exceedingly costly to the TEC and its communicants. The Honorable Diane Goodstein signed the Orders discussed in this skewed report, and her Orders conform to the most recent South Carolina Supreme Court case. The Supreme Court is not inclined to reverse itself simply because someone, regardless of whom that individual is, decides to reverse a theological position that has been church doctrine since the death of our Lord. Choosing to fight for a position that is contrary to scripture in South Carolina is like gargling with sulfuric acid. Rector Pittsburgh, PA February 1, 2013 at 9:09 pm Where’s Jesus in all of this?

Isn’t it wonderful how these very bibliolatrous folks seem to have forgotten the apostle’s teaching about keeping out of secular courts… Marc Kivel says: February 1, 2013 at 7:47 pm I have been following the whole farce very closely from London. If you stood outside looking in you would see the reality of someone claiming to be the leader of a diocese in a church which he has left. Either party may call themselves what they like, but there is a new Bishop who has been elected under the auspices of The Episcopal Church, as the former Bishop left the Church whose name it is nonsensical for him to use. As for the injunction – going down the legal route in any argument results in both parties losing out. Conciliation is the only way forward and for Christians to resort to law over who calls whom what ……words fail me so I will remain silent. The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group February 5, 2013 at 7:33 am Mr. Yarborough, you are a poster boy for precisely why Christianity is a swear word in the mouths of a great many folks who live Christian lives outside your church building. One can accept the authority of the Holy Scriptures while acknowledging there are multiple ways of understanding the text and its message…ask your pseudo-bishop about it. As for the unique salvific nature of Jesus Christ? Has it occurred to you that perhaps the Kingdom of God is here now and that recognizing God Saves, which is what Jesus name means, while a given for Christians is less important than walking the Way irrespective of your relationship with God or “religious” affiliation? As for being vitriolic? LOL That you can make that statement with a straight face suggests you haven’t listened to yourself lately…thoughts? February 1, 2013 at 6:05 pm My brother, God’s grace in the Diocese of South Carolina exists in the form of speaking the truth in love – which Bishop Lawrence, the clergy, and the laity of the Diocese practice.TEC is in denial about truth in a variety of areas – with a heretical Presiding Bishop who openly denies the authority of Holy Scripture and the unique salvific nature of Jesus Christ.TEC does not proclaim even its own version of truth in a loving manner, but with vitriolic demeaning of those who in good faith hold other opinions – as exemplified by Dr. Schori’s speech in Charleston equating her opponents to mass murderers.I fear that those who join The Episcopal Church in South Carolina will be at least tarred with the same brush as Dr. Schori, even if they don’t hold to the same heresies. Marc Kivel says: Rector Belleville, IL Rector Washington, DC February 1, 2013 at 7:08 pm As a devoted supporter of the ongoing diocese, I must say I am bewildered at and disappointed in Tisdale’s decision here. Of course I am only an outsider and non-lawyer, but from my present perspective, I just cannot see the wisdom in not challenging this issue at this time. Perhaps someone with ties to the leadership could enlighten us on why TEC did not fight the restraining order. Unfortunately, I see this as a public relations disaster for the ongoing diocese. PECDSC has gone to court three times within one month. On Jan. 4 they filed a law suit asserting itself as the legitimate Episcopal diocese with the right to the property. It is curious to me that they chose a particular court in another county. 32 parishes have now signed on to this suit, more than half the parishes of the old diocese. On Jan. 23, they collected a Temporary Restraining Order from Judge Goodstein who issued it ex parte, that is, without the defendants being invited to appear. This was just three days before the ongoing diocesan convention. It was a clever, if mean-spirited, ambush. On Jan. 31, they got the restraining order extended indefinitely. All of these are “victories” in one way or another for PECDSC. Meanwhile TEC has taken no legal action at all, not even to challenge the restraining order. This gives the appearance of PECDSC as strong, resolute, and legally credible. On the other hand, TEC appears weak, hesitant, and uncertain. There are eleven local churches in the old diocese now in discernment, that is, on the fence and trying to decide which bishop to follow. These legal moves may well strengthen the hand of the Lawrence side and weaken the TEC side in these parishes and missions. Those people who think the PECDSC has a good chance of winning in the South Carolina courts may well be right, I reluctantly say. The All Saints Waccamaw case certainly strengthened the position of a local church against a denomination in South Carolina. Local courts tend to stay out of religious disputes. However, if this case goes to federal court, things could be very different. On the whole, federal courts around the country have tended to side with TEC and its dioceses as hierarchical institutions entitled to manage their own structures. TEC ‘s best hope may be to get this case into federal court. The All Saints Waccamaw case was not appealed to the US Supreme Court. The broader issue at hand is fundamental to the continuation of the Episcopal Church under its present Constitution and Canons. If PECDSC, or one of the three earlier disputed dioceses finally prevails and is recognized by the courts as the legitimate Episcopal diocese of South Carolina, TEC as we know it will collapse. There are eleven other dioceses in TEC that are solidly and consistently conservative (orthodox as they say). Central Florida is the other one in the southeast. These dioceses may well follow SC’s pattern of independence from TEC. An out-of-court settlement is always possible. But in any settlement TEC must prevail on the issue of legitimacy in order to maintain itself. PECDSC must relinquish the titles, seals and any other official functions of the Diocese of South Carolina. It seems to me this is not negotiable. The property issue is not so important. It could be worked out by compromise. TEC will survive without the Dennis Canon. It cannot survive if it loses its sovereignty. So South Carolina many well be a turning point one way or another for TEC. If it wins, it will validate the TEC constitution and strengthen its sovereignty. If it loses, it will disintegrate. The issue of sovereignty was the same one in the Civil War. If the Confederacy had prevailed, the principle of states’ rights would have been firmly established in the South. Then, in time, this principle would have worked to disintegrate the Confederacy itself and possibly the individual states. The South would now be like the Balkans or Central America, many independent small states and city-states no doubt locked in poverty. Thank God the Union prevailed. That meant sovereignty remained in the national government. We are all better off for it whether you want to believe it or not. James Lewis Pettigru was the most famous Lawyer in Charleston on the eve of the Civil War and head of the bar. He was also a Unionist. When he heard that the SC convention had voted to secede, he said “South Carolina is too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum.” He knew the catastrophe to come and he was right. February 1, 2013 at 6:29 pm Many presbyteries in PCUSA have established plans that would allow congregations to leave the Presbyterian Church (USA) with their buildings if they first engage in an open discernment process and negotiate a settlement with the presbytery. Wouldn’t it be better if TEC were to put forth a similar plan instead of the tremendous expense of prolonged lawsuites and the probable loss in court? Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Vance Mann says: The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate Diocese of Nebraska David Yarbrough says: Joseph F Foster says: February 4, 2013 at 7:41 pm It would seem that they have already excommunicated The Episcopal Church. February 1, 2013 at 5:48 pm More appropriately those who have been left behind as TEC becomes increasingly liberal. February 2, 2013 at 4:37 pm You realize that no matter what the canons of the Diocese of South Carolina might say, the canons of the Episcopal Church still apply, right? They applied before Lawrence quit, and they applied during his departure, and they apply now, and they are why Lawrence CANNOT be the rightful bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina.

Rector Collierville, TN Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Vance Mann says: February 1, 2013 at 11:26 pm If TEc is so consistent in going to the courts, as it has proven that it will in every single case to date, it MUST be recognized that someone will eventually strike back. That striker looks to be the Diocese OF South Carolina that has always been the Diocese OF South Carolina since before TEc existed. It even helped to establish TEc’s existence. The facts on the ground, as we all must observe, is that that Diocese OF South Carolina has left the now defunct denomination of TEc. It is now in court, as TEc has gone to court many times before this one event, irrelevantly I might add to TEc’s detriment, to protect what the Diocese OF South Carolina has always been. The many words of previous posters such as Ronald Caldwell do not and never will negate that reality. The courts will decide. Give it time. It does not look good at all for TEc in this mess. They would do much better to drop the attack which started when they tried to remove a sitting godly bishop from a diocese that had not left the group in the first place. Accept those parishes that wanted to be TEc and cut any and all losses. That way, you may not lose more. In other words, what happens if a few orthodox in those parishes that are outnumbered by the liberals decide to go against the numerical liberal numbers and sue the liberals out of their structures because of steadfast South Carolina law? Peace is better. Russ Post says: last_img read more

In 2004, three couples with children who were looking for suitable housing in the city centre decided to join forces in order to commission their own construction project. They set their sights on a plot of land between Elandsstraat and Lijnbaansstraat. Save this picture!© Milad Pallesh In order to avoid open tendering, the city council sold the plot complete with contaminated soil and buildings that had yet to be demolished. There was space for six housing units, enabling a further three families to join the project, and the six households then formed a ‘collective private commissioning body’. Save this picture!© Milad Pallesh The land was divided into six condominium units, each of which also included a one sixth portion of the communal garden courtyard. The design process was an intensive trajectory of endless discussions, structuring responsibilities and monitoring costs. Architect and resident Bastiaan Jongerius designed a plan in which the edges of the plot are built on, giving rise to a central private courtyard.

  • Rising trend of local distilleries coincides with popularity of TCU’s Science and History of Whiskey Course

This number, compared to 204 distilleries reported in 2010, represents a 544 percent increase of distilleries in the country, marking a dramatic shift in the presence of these establishments in America in recent years.There are four distilleries in the Fort Worth area.Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. produces TX whiskey, Acre Distillery makes Longhair Jim straight bourbon whiskey, and the Trinity River Distillery crafts Silver Star whiskey. BlackEyed Distilling Co. LLC produces TreyMark Black-Eyed vodka.After the rise in popularity and continued success of craft breweries, the craft spirit industry finally had its time. The difference, however, is the difficulty of owning and operating a distillery compared to a brewery.Tony Formby, owner of Acre Distillery in downtown Fort Worth, said to get into distilling is a lot more complicated and expensive than the brewing business.“It requires a lot more capital and the competition from the older establishments is rigorous,” Formby said.The craft distillery trend can be attributed to a variety of causes. Dr. Eric Simanek, professor of chemistry at TCU, largely accredits the trend to changing laws and accessibility.Video Playerhttp://www.www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/the109/2017/02/My-Movie-3.m4vMedia error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundDownload File: http://www.www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/the109/2017/02/My-Movie-3.m4v?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.In 2013, Texas passed a bill enabling distilleries to sell their specialty products on-site. This act had been illegal since the 1920s, which halted growth for numerous distilleries.Formby said one reason he decided to open the distillery was because of this new law.“Local and in-state sales are the backbone of small, growing distilleries,” Maggie Lehman, associate director, American Craft Spirits Association, said in a craft spirits economic briefing. “They allow these businesses to survive the early difficult years of getting off the ground.” Laura Belpediohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/laura-belpedio/ Rising trend of local distilleries coincides with popularity of TCU’s Science and History of Whiskey Course Linkedin Laura Belpediohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/laura-belpedio/ Laura Belpediohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/laura-belpedio/ Facebook Vietnamese Student Association hosts “Born with Horn” event Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Laura Belpedio Dr. Mike Slattery: The man behind TCU’s Rhino Initiative Laura is a senior journalism major and sociology minor from Kansas City, Missouri.

  • Warning issued against harvesting wild shellfish

    first_imgTwitter WhatsApp Advertisement NewsLocal NewsWarning issued against harvesting wild shellfishBy admin – August 21, 2012 482 Linkedin Facebookcenter_img Print Email AS LIMERICK holiday makers make the most of the final few weeks before re commencement of the return to school routine, seaside visitors are being warned against eating wild shellfish from the shoreline of the west and south coast. Following a number of food poisoning incidents the Food Safety Association of Ireland (FSAI) said these illnesses, in areas of Galway, Mayo and Sligo are linked with “algal blooms that are occurring naturally along the West and South coast”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up With areas of the Clare coastline susceptible to the same blooms, Professor Alan Reilly, chief executive of FSAI said that some residents and visitors engaged in the recreational gathering of shellfish in the region may be unaware of the dangers of consuming such shellfish;“Wild shellfish found along the West Coast may contain naturally occurring toxins that cannot be removed during cooking alone.“Eating shellfish contaminated with these toxins can lead to people suffering nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps and while the effects are not life threatening they can be particularly severe for older people, young children and people already suffering from a medical condition”.The warning covers against the gathering of bi-valve shellfish such as mussels, oysters, scallops, cockles and clams.Shellfish should only be purchased from reputable suppliers and consumers should know that commercial producers operate under the sophisticated national monitoring programme which manages the risks.Prof Reilly says that information about the monitoring programme is available on www.marine.ie and consumers with food safety queries should contact the Food Safety Advice line on 1890 33 66 77.In addition the Marine Institute has said that the algal bloom has levelled off but a note of caution is still to be exercised.

  • Suspect arrested after 2 killed in 4 separate stabbing incidents on NYC subway line

    first_imgMattGush/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A suspect has now been arrested and charged with murder in connection with multiple stabbings that left two victims dead on the New York City subway system within a 24-hour period, police said.Rigoberto Lopez, 21, from Brooklyn, is facing one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder, police said.The incidents all occurred along the A subway line. At least three of the stabbings appear to be connected, and police were investigating whether the fourth is as well, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said earlier Saturday during a press briefing.The first incident occurred Friday at approximately 11:20 a.m., when a 67-year-old man was stabbed by an unknown man at the West 181st Street station in upper Manhattan, police said. He was treated at an area hospital and is recovering.Later that day, shortly after 11 p.m., a man was found on the A train at the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station in Queens with stab wounds to his neck and torso, police said. EMS arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene.Two hours later, at approximately 1:15 a.m. Saturday, an MTA employee found a 44-year-old woman unconscious on the train at the 207th Street station in upper Manhattan with multiple stab wounds, police said. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.The fourth incident occurred back at the West 181st Street station in Manhattan, where a 43-year-old man was stabbed shortly before 1:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. He underwent surgery at a nearby hospital and was in stable condition.All of the victims appear to be homeless and the stabbings were unprovoked, police said. The three late-night incidents are believed to be connected, police said.Detectives stressed that the investigation is preliminary, and that they are trying to determine definitively if all four stabbings were committed by the same person.In light of the deadly violence, the NYPD will immediately deploy an additional 500 officers throughout the city to patrol the transit system above and below ground, Shea said.“I know what the train used to look like, and when you look at what the train looks like now and you look at how far crime has fallen over the years, but we don’t want to go one step back,” Shea said. “We want to do everything we can to make sure it remains the safest system, and that people also feel safe.”The heads of the city’s transit system and transit workers union called the attacks “outrageous and unacceptable.”“Every customer, and each of our brave, heroic transit workers deserve a safe and secure transit system,” New York City Transit interim President Sarah Feinberg and TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano said in a joint statement. “We have been calling on the city to add more police to the system, and to do more to assist those who desperately need mental health assistance. The time for action is now.”ABC News’ Aaron Katersky contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

  • Colleen Loach and Vermont 4th in CCI4*-S in Kentucky

    first_img Horse Sport Enews Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition! Jessica Phoenix and Bogue Sound finished in 8th place. (MacMillan Photography)The decimated field in the CCI4*-S at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event ‒ just 22 remaining from the original 40 starters thanks to an unforgiving cross-country course ‒ took to the main arena on Sunday over Steve Stephens show jumping track. Lots of rails were lowered and many had trouble making the 80 seconds time allowed.For the Canadians, Jessica Phoenix and Wabbit were first up (and first out to test the course). They had a number of lucky rubs and then took the final fence down, plus added 3.2 time penalties. Their final score of 66.5 put them in a very respectable 10th place to finish the weekend.She was followed by Colleen Loach and FE Golden Eye, who logged one of just five clear rounds without jumping or time penalties to retain their score of 71.1 and finish in 12th place.Phoenix’s second ride, Pavarotti, had three rails plus two time penalties for a final score of 69 for 11th place. Her third and final mount, Bogue Sound, lowered two fences and crossed the timers just a smidge late to score 8.8 penalties for a total of 61.3 and a terrific 8th-place end to the weekend.Jessica Phoenix and Wabbit had a 10th place result. (MacMillan Photography)“For our first competition back since last November, I could not have been happier with all three of them,” she said of her horses. “I definitely knocked some rust off in there, which was great. I felt bad that I had that many rails on Rottie, but I tried to make up for some of my mistakes.“And Wabbit was just unbelievable in there. For his first time in the Rolex stadium he really held it together.” She added that Watson GS seems fine now after exhibiting lameness caused by an abscess in a hind hoof during the dressage phase.Colleen Loach had been sitting in third place, but unfortunately Vermont had one rail for a final tally of 45.8 to drop a placing and finish in 4th overall – still a terrific result.“Goldie [FE Golden Eye] jumped really sure super in there; he was quite spooky in the warm-up but he got in there and did his job. And then Monty [Vermont] was a little bit backed off from yesterday in the warm up, but he went in there and felt really good and my reins just got a little long after the triple and he got a bit flat to the vertical, but he jumped really well.” Next stop for these two horses is Jersey Fresh in Allentown, NJ, for the four-star long May 5-9.4* winners Alyssa Phillips and Oskar. (MacMillan Photography)Alyssa Phillips and Oskar continued to build the tension with a fabulous clear round, leaving it all on the shoulders of overnight leader Tamra Smith and EnVogue, who did not have the luxury of even a rail in hand. And that rail came down in the middle of the triple combination, handing the win to an overwhelmed Phillips and her 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding, finishing with 37.9.“He’s a great horse, and it’s a big show, he really tried hard for me in there,” said the delighted 25-year-old. “I just couldn’t be happier with him. To win and to be here at his first four-star in Kentucky is amazing. I’m so proud of him.”Phillips is coached by Jennie Brannigan and also had her mom and friends in the nearly empty stands cheering her on.“The girls that I have here, I went to college with them or I knew them from back in Texas and growing up, and we haven’t seen each other for a while since we’re all doing different things. It’s awesome that they’re here, awesome that my mom was able to come; I’m so happy that Jennie’s here and I just couldn’t be more grateful for everyone that surrounds me and helps me and my horse.”Third place went to another American, Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and the nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Cooley Moonshine, who had a double-clear round to finish on 42.5.See the final 4* leaderboard here.
