Communion women can help change sisters’ fate, says Anglican leader

Leaders such as primates MUST lead the way to justice and not equivocate to placate their recalcitrant colleagues and clergy flock so that they don’t feel judged or rebuked. Our highest priest Jesus the Christ rebuked the priests of his day for failing their responsibilities to the marginalized. The Secretary General must live into the responsibility to admonish and to educate the male primates to do better and not relinquish or default in that role and responsibility. It is not the wives who have the official responsibility or power to do the work. Women can be and are important allies in the work and have been doing our part for our own sakes for our lifetimes. Press Release Service March 17, 2016 at 9:36 pm Yes, but … I don’t think the SG realizes that he is still putting the onus to change on women. Rather, he should address his remarks to men. It’s not the responsibility of women to encourage their husbands , sons and other men, it’s the responsibility of men to grow up. That’s not to be ignorant of the reality of patriarchal cultures, it’s to say that male leaders need to tell other men to change their ways. Women are constantly adapting and changing. Men, not so much. Catharine White says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Lelanda Lee says: March 29, 2016 at 9:29 am I am weary of men (in dresses) telling women what they need to do.

Josiah Atkins Idowu-Fearon tells Anglican and Episcopal women gathered March 16 in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center in New York. The speech by the Anglican Communion’s secretary general came during an event related to the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service] The secretary general of the Anglican Communion said March 16 that Anglican and Episcopal women must continue – and redouble – their work to change the fate of women and girls in their communities, including by working with their national and local governments.“Sisters, opportunities are many, but we cannot afford to sit still and wait for things to happen,” said the Most Rev. Josiah Atkins Idowu-Fearon, speaking in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center in New York in an event related to the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. “We need to keep knocking on the doors of U.N. agencies and governments, and be ready to show what we can do and how we can be effective partners in terms they can respect.“Anglicans are on the ground, serving their communities in over 165 countries,” he said. “We have countries where we are an established church. We must speak up for the people we serve at the grassroots level because we know what they need in order to develop and to thrive.”Women from across the Episcopal Church and throughout the Anglican Communion representing more than 20 countries have come to New York to attend the March 14-24 UNCSW session and parallel events such as Idowu-Fearon’s presentation.Idowu-Fearon said he was grateful that the UNCSW afforded the chance for Anglican voices to be heard at the highest levels of international government. “And by ‘Anglican’ I mean the Episcopal Church as well,” he added.He said he hoped that when the delegates returned home, they could find like-minded people and “form a little group within your provinces in order to make the ripple effects go farther.“That kind of advocacy, my sisters, requires capacity,” he said. “It requires us to be intentional about telling our stories and showing in concrete terms the difference we can make in our unity. It means being courageous and speaking truth to power.”Idowu-Fearon acknowledged during his speech that in many contexts, including some parts of Africa, “religion can be a stumbling block to change.” Earlier that day, he said, he learned “to my horror” that the parliament in his home country of Nigeria had defeated gender equality legislation for the third time. Opponents claimed that the proposed law violated Nigerian cultural norms as well as both the Bible and the Quran.He also recalled attending a meeting of the Nigerian provincial standing committee in 2003 after the Episcopal Church had agreed to ordain openly gay Episcopal priest Gene Robinson as the bishop of New Hampshire. During that meeting, the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals, adopted in 2000, were being discussed. A senior bishop declared that the development goals are “ways of the West wanting to poison our minds and remove us from focusing on the gospel.” Idowu-Fearon said the bishop refused to back down when he challenged him.“You see what ignorance does? That’s ignorance,” he said, “but, I thank God that even though Nigeria did not buy into it, other parts of the communion were fully into it.”Idowu-Fearon was the bishop of Kaduna in the Church of Nigeria for 17 years before he became the communion’s secretary general in July. He also served as archbishop of the Nigerian church’s province of Kaduna from 2002-2009. He has a global reputation for his expertise in Christian-Muslim relations.He said Anglican and Episcopal women, as disciples of Jesus, can promote change by teaching and preaching about sustainable development for all women as well as “modeling the attitudes and behavior we want to see.” They must also be “prophets in our time” and advocates and gender champions at all levels of community. And, they must “pay attention on the ground to those who are being left out.”While people of faith can and should challenge cultural norms, Idowu-Fearon acknowledged “with a heavy heart” that “our churches are buried in the past and, in so many cases, still failing to recognize the equal God-given dignity and giftedness of women and men.” He noted that he comes from a province in which women cannot be ordained and are not given “full leadership roles in the church.” In addition, he said, work is needed to ensure that lay voices are heard “as an essential part of the Anglican dialogue.”“We must speak up for the people we serve at the grassroots level,” the Most Rev. Josiah Atkins Idowu-Fearon tells Anglican and Episcopal women meeting March 16 in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center in New York. Photo: Mary Frances SchjonbergIn his presentation, Idowu-Fearon repeatedly referred to the roles that the wives of bishops and clergy have to play in changing attitudes in their provinces. Noting that Anglican women are very involved in the church, especially in Africa, he said “bishops’ wives are bishops to the women, clergy wives are clergy to the women.”During a question-and-answer session, two women challenged Idowu-Fearon about the focus of the recent primates gathering on internal issues.“Each time you meet as primates you have specific agendas and you seem to fight and there’s so much tension – so much conflict – and we hold our breath because we don’t know what is going to come out of your meetings. And yet, there is so much injustice happening in the world, so much that we could be working on,” said Ashella Ndhlovu Chama of Zambia.Chama challenged Idowu-Fearon and the primates of the Anglican Communion to be seen participating in the White Ribbon Campaign of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls.“You see, the fact that we are gathered here means that we are committed. The fact that we are means that we want to make an impact, to change the communities, as Anglican women, but we cannot do it without you,” said Chama, who is married to Archbishop Albert Chama, primate of the Church of the Province of Central Africa that is hosting the April 8-19 meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council, the communion’s main policy-making body.Reminding the secretary general of the influence of bishops, especially in Africa, she said, “We want you to use that influence because if you come out there (at the end of the next Primates Meeting) in your robes … and you have a fantastic picture and all of you are wearing white ribbons, you would be amazed at how that message will get out.”Clergy must speak from the pulpit against the violent treatment of women and girls, instead of allowing it to go on by being silent, Chama said. “We’ve got to see more of that happening and it has to start from the top. So, while we are working, while we are sweating it out and trying to make things work from the ground, we want to see things happening at the top, trickling down,” she said.As the audience applauded her remarks, Idowu-Fearon said, “Hmm, okay, sure, I agree with you.”“If you can convince your husbands to wear that ribbon, it will make a difference,” he added, and referred to the role of the wives of bishops and clergy in the work of ending silence.Citing the example of a conference offered in Africa by Caroline Welby, the wife of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Idowu-Fearon said such meetings were “another way of doing what you are talking about here – because when women meet, things you share amongst yourselves are much deeper and beneficial to us because some of the wives go back and share with their husbands.”“So, we will try to talk with the primates and the bishops but you also have this role to play” because you have to go back home and share the experience of meetings like this with your colleagues, Idowu-Fearon said.Then, Cynthia Katsarelis, Episcopal Church delegate from the Diocese of Colorado, stood to say she supported Chama’s comments “in the strongest possible terms about what we should focus on and I am not going to let the primates off the hook.”Telling Idowu-Fearon that she is a lesbian who was married in the Episcopal Church, Katsarelis said, “I’m not your problem.”“My spouse, Rebecca, is not your problem. We’re fine; we’re not hurting anybody. The people that are hurting are the women who are being murdered, the women and girls who are being raped, the women and girls who are disappearing in the world, the women and girls who are hungry, the women and girls who can get an education to make a life for themselves.“These people are the problem that we need to address. These people are children of God that we’re called upon to love as our neighbors and to lift up as children of God to prosper in the abundance – the great gift of God’s abundance to us all.”Katsarelis said she has been “graced with this abundance,” especially during the many times when “hateful rhetoric” was directed against her.“Every time, who saved me? God,” she told the secretary general. “Don’t worry about me. God’s taking care of me and all of us here.”She asked Idowu-Fearon not to let the conflict at the primates’ level be used “as an excuse not to address the suffering hunger and pain of this world.”As Katsarelis sat down to loud applause, Idowu-Fearon said “Thank you.”More ENS coverage of Anglican and Episcopal women’s participation in the UNCSW is here.– The Rev.

Clover House is located on the south side of the island of Kythera in Greece, where gentle Mediterranean hills with low vegetation descend towards the sea.Save this picture!© Pygmalion KaratzasThe architectural composition sought to integrate the building harmoniously into the surrounding landscape. The development of the house is linear, parallel to the views and the contour lines. It breaks into two smaller ground floor volumes – the main house and a guests suite. An arch act as the connecting element of the two wings, a reference to the local form of ‘sfendonia’. The corridor created between the two main building blocks, crowned by the large arch, forms a transverse viewing axis. Tapered walls enhance the sense of the building’s proportions, a feature often found in structures around the island.Save this picture!© Pygmalion KaratzasSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Pygmalion KaratzasThe residence develops behind a vertical plane formed by a curved stone wall that runs along the north side of the house. Its monolithic figure refers to the walls of the Venetian castle that sits in direct view, on the opposite slope. This curved diaphragm serves also as a windbreaker to the house from the northerly prevailing winds during the winter months. The openings on the north side are small, yet capable to allow the cool north breeze to enter during the summer months.

Tesco Bags of Help scheme helps 10,000 community projects

first_img Melanie May | 2 February 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis55 Tesco has announced that 10,000 community projects have now been funded through its Bags of Help scheme.Run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, Bags of Help uses the money raised from carrier bag sales to fund local projects. Tesco has now donated over £43 million to causes across England, Scotland and Wales through the programme, which began in 2015.Through Bags of Help, Tesco customers vote in-store for a local project, using the blue token given to them at the checkout. Every two months Tesco awards grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000, in each of its 565 regions.Examples of projects supported include:A new ‘book bus’ for Robert Kett primary school in Norfolk. Bags of Help funding paid for a double decker bus, now parked in the school’s playground, which has been transformed into a library for the pupils to enjoy.Helping vulnerable and isolated people to get cycling in Glasgow. Tesco grants helped pay for a ‘peddling pool’ – a dedicated area where small children can learn to ride a bike with their parents and carers.Restoring a community allotment in Holyhead after three floods in three years made it difficult to access the site. Bags of Help funded a new all-weather road leading to the site, new paths around the plots and a dedicated car park to help the children, elderly and disabled users who regularly enjoy the site.Matt Davies, Tesco CEO UK & ROI, said:“As Bags of Help is funded by the sale of carrier bags, it’s only right that our customers decide which local projects to fund, and I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve now donated £43 million to support 10,000 good causes – from restoring scout huts to buying kids’ football kits.“This is a huge achievement and it’s fantastic to see Bags of Help making a big difference to local communities across the country.” Advertisement  888 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis55 Tagged with: corporate Funding Tescocenter_img Graham Duxbury, Chief Executive of Groundwork UK, said:“We are delighted that Bags of Help has reached the impressive milestone of funding 10,000 projects that have helped communities in England, Scotland and Wales.“Since the initiative started we have seen some amazing projects come to fruition, and it’s great to know the impressive scale that the programme has on reaching communities that need extra funds to make where they live a better place to be.“It’s exciting to know that this positive impact can continue and we look forward to seeing even more local communities apply for grants, and creating innovative projects that help local people and places.”To apply for funding from Bags of Help, charities and community groups must take an eligibility test online.

Women with cervical cancer are being forced into silence

first_imgVicky PhelanPhoto: Oisin McHugh True MediaMANY women affected by the Cervical Check scandal can’t speak out because of personal circumstances or because they haven’t told their families that they have cervical cancer, according to campaigner Vicky Phelan.Speaking at a North-South Criminology Conference in UCC last week, Ms Phelan said that some people caught up in the scandal have not been able to go public with their experiences because they are in the throes of “nasty” divorces or separations and have been advised not to speak publicly.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Limerick campaigner, who has been to the forefront of the drive for accountability and transparency in the service, said she is amazed that no-one is studying her as the drug Pembro (Pembrolizumab) with which she is being treated is working for her.“When you think about it, I should be dead,” she said. “I had a 10cm tumour mass here, touching off all my organs. There is no way I should be standing here. I am not in any pain, I am living my life.“My logic is: ‘Why is somebody not looking at me?’ Instead of looking at me as an anomaly, why are they not studying me and saying: ‘Why is it working for her and not for other people?’”Ms Phelan was at the forefront of the launch of the 221+ CervicalCheck Patient Support Group with Stephen Teap and Lorraine Walsh.“The group that I am involved with, women are going through very nasty separations and divorces,” Ms Phelan told the conference.“They don’t want to go public. It would impact on them if they got a payout because an ex-husband or partner would be entitled to half that money. Within that group, there are things that people don’t know of. Some women haven’t even told their family they have cervical cancer.She said that some of the women were told by solicitors not to talk publically because of their particular individual circumstances. She said staying silent in such a way is “very difficult”.Ms Phelan also revealed that she and others are awaiting the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists review, amid fears that audits might show that other women also had misread or false smear test results.

Former sheriff’s deputy arrested in connection to Parkland school shooting

first_imgJoe Raedle/Getty Images(PARKLAND, Fla.) — A Broward County, Florida, sheriff’s deputy has been fired and arrested on felony charges in connection to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.Deputy Scot Peterson, 56, was arrested on seven counts of neglect of a child, three counts of culpable negligence and one count of perjury, according to a news release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.“The FDLE investigation shows former Deputy Peterson did absolutely nothing to mitigate the MSD shooting that killed 17 children, teachers and staff and injured 17 others,” said FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen in a statement. “There can be no excuse for his complete inaction and no question that his inaction cost lives.”As a result of an internal investigation, Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony announced that Peterson and Sergeant Brian Miller were both terminated after they were found to have “neglected their duties at MSD High School,” the sheriff’s office said.This is a developing story.
