El clero necesitará la autorización de su Obispo según los términos de la resolución.La moción en la Cámara de Diputados obtuvo la aprobación del 78 por ciento del clero, con el voto favorable de 85 delegados del clero, 22 votos desfavorables y cuatro votos con posiciones divididas; y la aprobación del 76 por ciento de los votos de laicos, 86 votos favorables de los delegados laicos, 19 votos desfavorables y 5 votos con posiciones divididas. Los obispos habían aprobado la resolución el 9 de julio en una votación por nombre con el resultado de 111 votos a favor, 41 en contra y tres abstenciones.La resolución además hiso un llamado a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música “para que lleve a cabo un proceso de revisión en el próximo trienio, aclarando que este es un tema de “labor inconclusa”, dijo, la Rda. Ruth Meyers, diputada de la diócesis de Chicago al presentar la legislación a los diputados. Ella preside el subcomité sobre bendiciones del Comité del Libro de oración, Liturgia y Música Eclesiástica de la Convención, y la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música.La resolución solicitó a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música para que incluya “perspectivas teológicas diversas en el avance de desarrollo de recursos teológicos” y para que invite a que se obtengan las reacciones de toda la iglesia así como también de la Comunión Anglicana y de los socios de las Iglesias ecuménicas.A resolución indica que, conforme a los cánones vigentes, un clérigo puede rehusar presidir una liturgia de bendición y dice que nadie “debe ser coaccionado ni castigado en modo alguno, ni sufrir ninguna incapacidad canónica” por objetar o por apoyar la decisión de la 77a. Convención General sobre las bendiciones.La Liturgia “es un servicio para bendecir las parejas del mismo sexo quienes están en una relación monógama, leal, comprometida para toda la vida”, dijo Meyers en una sesión informativa de la prensa después que los diputados concluyeran la sesión. “Con ese servicio viene un paquete completo de recursos”.Los recursos incluyen un ensayo teológico, guía sobre la ley canóniga, temas para preparar a las parejas para el servicio de bendición y temas de enseñanza invitándolos a todos a la iglesia “para conversar y reflexionar sobre teología, o si ellos esperan o no que sus congregaciones en algún momento estén preparados para realizar esos servicios”, dijo ella.Actualmente el paquete puede encontrarse comenzando en la página 184 del Libro Azul. (La Convención realizó unas cuantas revisiones a la versión del rito incluido en el informe.)Antes de que la Cámara debatiera la resolución, el Muy Reverendo Rev. David Thurlow, miembro del comité del Libro de Oración, Liturgia y Música y diputado de la diócesis de Carolina del Sur, presentó un informe de minoría a los diputados.“En 2,000 años, la Iglesia ha tenido una enseñanza clara sobre el matrimonio,” él dijo. Asimismo, indicando la preocupación del comité sobre las relaciones ecuménicas en otras áreas, como mantener el uso del Leccionario Común Revisado, Thurlow dijo “nosotros no hemos seguido el consejo de la voz universal de la iglesia universal o de la Comunión Anglicana”.“Esta resolución marca una desviación clara y significativa — teológica, doctrinal y en el culto — de la doctrina, disciplina y culto a Cristo tal como esta Iglesia la recibió,” dijo él. Esta resolución presenta una “nueva teología de la sexualidad humana.”Durante el debate, la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados Bonnie Anderson hiso un llamada de forma alterna a los partidarios y a los oponentes a esta resolución.“Las señales fuera de nuestra Iglesia dicen que todos somos bienvenidos” dijo el diputado de la diócesis de Michigan Pete Ross, quien instó a la aprobación de la resolución. “¿Necesitamos un asterisco?”El Rdo. Charles Holt, del Centro de la Florida, comentó acerca de la sesión realizada temprano sobre el voto unánime de la cámara sobre una resolución de estructura mayor. “Realmente eso me conmovió mucho de una manera poderosa. Fue la primera vez que me sentí unido a este grupo. Luego unos minutos después, recibimos… algo que son divide profundamente en valores muy, muy fundamentales”.“Aprobar esta resolución,” dijo el Venerable. David Collum, diputado de la diócesis de Albany, “es simplemente ejercer un poder mayoritario contra aquellos con un punto de vista minoritario, que dicen ‘No me importa’”.El Rdo. Jack Zamboni, de Nueva Jersey, recuerda haber tenido el rol de “novio” en una prueba de liturgia en el sínodo provincial 2. “Mi reacción después de participar en esa liturgia fue que yo anhele que [mi esposa] y yo hubiésemos tenido esa liturgia cuando nos casamos hace seis años. Es una pieza de trabajo de liturgia maravillosa”.Él describió como un pareja de lesbianas en su parroquia, que estaban juntas por 30 años, lloraron cuando él les dijo que la convención estaba considerando autorizar el rito que bendeciría su relación.“Ellas nunca pensaron que esto pasaría en sus vidas”.Algunos de los diputados jóvenes de la Cámara contaron relatos [o dieron testimonios] personales al tiempo que instaban la aprobación de la resolución.La diputada de Newark, Caroline Christie, de 18 años, recordó que cuando era niña se preguntaba por qué sus dos tías no podían casarse. “No había diferencia en su relación, excepto que las dos eran mujeres. Al crecer, empecé a darme cuenta que esto era un tema de discriminación. … Las parejas del mismo sexo deben tener la oportunidad de ser bendecidas por la Iglesia”.El diputado de Chicago, Ian Hallas, de 22 años, de la misma manera hablo sobre su familia: su hermana y de su unión civil.“El amor que ella comparte con su pareja es incondicional y es la relación ideal que todos debemos luchar por tener”, él dijo.“Con frecuencia las personas que asisten a la iglesia y los que no asisten a la iglesia me preguntan por qué soy parte de esta iglesia,” él dijo. “La razón por la que regreso es mi hermana. Busco reafirmar que ella no solo tenga el mismo rito de bendición que yo, pero que además ella tenga los mismos privilegios”.Antes de la votación, la cámara tuvo una discusión larga y compleja y prosiguió un pedido para dividir la resolución. Finalmente, la resolución no fue dividida, los diputados votaron aprobar toda la resolución. Los diputados también votaron rechazando un pedido para referir la resolución al Comité Permanente de Liturgia y Música.– Sharon Sheridan es miembro del equipo de Servicio de Prensa Episcopal en la Convención General Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit a Press Release Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Collierville, TN 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 Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Rector Knoxville, TN Tags 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 Rector Tampa, FL Cathedral Dean Boise, ID [Anglican Communion News Service] An independent review has been carried out into the way the Church of England handled allegations that the former bishop of Chichester, George Bell, sexually abused a young girl in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In October 2015, the Church of England issued a statement in which it announced that the complainant had received compensation and an apology. The statement also said that Sussex police had confirmed “that the information obtained from their enquiries would have justified, had he still been alive, Bell’s arrest and interview, on suspicion of serious sexual offenses.” The Church asked senior human rights lawyer Lord Carlile to undertake a review of their handling of the case, after supporters of Bell accused it of unfairly deciding Bell’s guilt.Read the entire article here.

The Ring House is located on the southern coast of Crete only 165 nautical miles from the Sahara desert. Two concrete beams follow the topography of the hill to define the outline of the house. The ring is articulated by these concrete beams. It provides protected shaded areas, well-ventilated interiors, surfaces for solar collection panels and protects an inner garden planted with varieties of citrus trees and edible plants. Altogether the house and its garden are designed to form a temperate microclimate, an oasis within an intensely beautiful but physically demanding environment.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!Save this picture!© George MessaritakisAt a broader scale, the house is a landscape preservation effort. In the past, the topography had been severely scarred by the random and informal carving of roads.

During the spring, prior to construction, seeds were collected on site and cultivated in a greenhouse to grow more seeds.

The Bolgoda house was built on an elevated, fan shaped land facing the lake.

Décor elements like stainless steel abstract cubes, venetian glass orbs, chrome lights were used to accentuate the raw stylized feel. Most doors are clad in oxidized copper squares which were cut from discarded copper sheets, and oxidized in-house.

Senate Committee Advances Food Supply Protection Bill Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Committee Advances Food Supply Protection Bill By Gary Truitt – Jul 24, 2019 Previous articleIndiana Farm Bureau Gears Up Education Efforts for State FairNext articleTrade, Disaster Aid, Coming to Farmers Quickly Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has approved a bill to protect the nation’s food supply. The committee unanimously approved The Protecting America’s Food & Agriculture Act of 2019, introduced by Senate Agriculture Committee leaders Pat Roberts and Debbie Stabenow. The bill would authorize U.S. Customs and Border Protection to hire additional inspectors to fully staff U.S. airports, seaports, and land ports of entry. Stabenow called agricultural inspectors the “first line of defense against threats” to agriculture. The Department of Agriculture and Border Patrol work together to facilitate the safe and secure entry of agricultural goods into the country. Agricultural specialists and canine units conduct inspections to detect products and prevent the entry of disease, including African swine fever, to the United States. The bill authorizes the annual hiring of 240 agricultural specialists a year until the workforce shortage is filled.The legislation has received support from a broad coalition including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Farm Bureau Federation.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE

Leitrim yesterday where he apologised for his role in getting so heavily involved with the former Anglo Irish bank.Mr. Quinn served a nine week sentence in prison last January for contempt of court. His family’s legal battle with the former Anglo Irish Bank continues.Deputy Business Editor of the Sunday Independent is Tom Lyons. He says while he may be a victim of the banks, he only has himself to blame.”I think it is accurate to say he is somewhat of a victim – but I think he also has to admit that he was quite the player” he said.”This is somebody who borrowed a lot of money from the banks, invested a lot of money in bank shares – and to compare himself as a victim versus the ordinary family whose had to watch their children emigrate or the ordinary family who find that they’re suddenly unemployed…I wouldn’t consider him a victim in that sense” he added.

It should have been five years Marcin Wziontek/REX/Shutterstock Prison terms for individuals who assault emergency workers will increase from six months to a year under a new law that comes into force in November.The Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill creates a new offence of assault against an emergency worker, including police officers, firefighters, paramedics and search and rescue workers. It also includes prison officers.Violence at workZero hours workers subject to more sexual harassmentViolence at work policy and procedureThe law already covers attacks on police officers, but the Bill will introduce similar protections for other emergency workers and any unpaid volunteers assisting them.Tougher sentences will also be considered for more serious offences such as GBH and sexual assault if the victim is an emergency worker.According to the Ministry of Justice, there have been 26,000 assaults on police officers and more than 17,000 attacks on NHS staff in the past year.There was also a 70% increase in attacks on prison officers in the three years to 2017 and an 18% increase in assaults on firefighters over the last two years.Figures from Unison earlier this year revealed that the biggest increase in assaults on NHS workers between 2015/16 and 2016/17 was in acute care. Attacks on accident and emergency staff were up by 21%.Chris Bryant MP, who put forward the private members bill that is receiving Royal Assent today, said: “The growing tide of attacks on emergency workers – including ambulance workers, NHS staff, fire officers, prison officers and police – is a national scandal. All too often attackers get away with little more than a slap on the wrist.“I hope this new law will help put a stop to that attitude. An attack on an emergency worker is an attack on all of us and attackers should face the full force of the law. Now it is for the prosecuting authorities and the courts to play their part in putting a stop to the violence, so that emergency workers can get on doing their job in peace.”Kim Sunley, national officer at the Royal College of Nursing, said assaults are “a fact of life” for many healthcare workers.“The RCN has campaigned tirelessly for this law,” she said. “Our negotiations have ensured it covers as many healthcare workers as possible, including community and district nurses, and alongside other emergency workers’ representatives we successfully expanded the scope of the bill to include sexual assault.”The Ministry of Justice is also looking at measures to better protect prison officers, including body-worn cameras, improved handcuffs and restraints and a trial of incapacitant spray.

The end of the Last Glacial Maximum (Termination I), roughly 20 thousand years ago (ka), was marked by cooling in the Northern Hemisphere, a weakening of the Asian monsoon, a rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations and warming over Antarctica. The sequence of events associated with the previous glacial–interglacial transition (Termination II), roughly 136 ka, is less well constrained. Here we present high-resolution records of atmospheric CO2 concentrations and isotopic composition of N2—an atmospheric temperature proxy—from air bubbles in the EPICA Dome C ice core that span Termination II. We find that atmospheric CO2 concentrations and Antarctic temperature started increasing in phase around 136 ka, but in a second phase of Termination II, from 130.5 to 129 ka, the rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations lagged that of Antarctic temperature unequivocally. We suggest that during this second phase, the intensification of the low-latitude hydrological cycle resulted in the development of a CO2 sink, which counteracted the CO2 outgassing from the Southern Hemisphere oceans over this period.
