Ha llegado su hora. Ya que este tema es de importancia histórica y de significado intemporal para la iglesia; las prácticas de matrimonio están experimentando un cambio social en nuestros días; y nuestra iglesia, a través de la resolución A050 en la Convención General del 2012, solicitó que desarrollemos herramientas para el debate sobre este tema.Entramos en esta conversación – como siempre lo hacemos cuando discernimos el camino a seguir – al considerar esas tres fuentes de autoridad anglicana sobre el tema: la escritura, la tradición (incluyendo la teología, liturgia, derecho canónico, e historia), y la razón (incluyendo nuestra experiencia humana).Nuestro equipo de trabajo está formado por 12 personas designadas: obispos, teólogos, educadores y pastores. A medida que el grupo de trabajo se encarga de la provisión de recursos para esta reflexión, nosotros hemos explorado profundamente el matrimonio a través del lente de las Escrituras, la tradición y la razón. Hemos estudiado y hemos consultado ampliamente.Si bien no vamos a completar este trabajo hasta que hagamos nuestro informe a la Convención General del 2015, estamos en condiciones, en este momento, de compartir con la iglesia un poco de nuestros esfuerzos hasta la fecha. Y lo más importante, estamos dispuestos a invitar a la iglesia en el debate a nivel local.Nuestra esperanza es que muchos aprovechen de este momento de nuestra historia para ser parte de discernir el camino a seguir. En nuestros días, ¿qué nos llama Dios a comprender, a decir, y tal vez hacer en lo que respecta al matrimonio?Sólo podemos responder a esta pregunta si más de 12 personas participan. Obtener una amplia participación ayudará a los diputados y obispos – representantes de todos nosotros – en la Convención General del 2015, cuando ellos reciban nuestro informe y consideren las posibles respuestas al llamado de nuestra iglesia para profundizar esta conversación.El recurso puede ser utilizado en una variedad de escenarios,  y consta de tres formatos diferentes, que pueden utilizarse de forma independiente el uno del otro: un evento de 90-minutos (que se puede dividir en tres sesiones de 35-minutos); una variedad de foros de 45 minutos; y un extenso artículo de un grupo de estudio. Todos los tres formatos cubren la teología, la historia, la escritura, las tendencias actuales, y más, con las pautas para la presentación y preguntas para el debate en grupo.El paquete “Querido Amado” se encuentra aquí PowerPoint para el recurso de  “Continuar Conversaciones” se encuentra aquí acceso aquí a la página web completa para el Grupo de Trabajo sobre el matrimonio de la Convención General A050 .____________________Grupo de Trabajo de la Iglesia Episcopal en el Estudio del Matrimonio está autorizado por la Resolución A050 de la Convención General del 2012.La Resolución A050 completa está disponible aquí.ágina de Grupo de Trabajo en Facebook: de Trabajo en YouTube: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Bath, NC Rector Shreveport, LA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Press Release Servicelast_img read more

This addition opens up to an established back garden in the leafy suburb of Ivanhoe. Seven metre wide doors slide away and broad timber steps descend into the garden. A massive but finely detailed facade screen modulates northern sunlight in the main living area. The algorithmic pattern of the facade screen was inspired by foliage and textile patterns.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisIvanhoe is known for its period homes on large blocks and its green, hilly and picturesque landscape. Its character is recognised by the local council which stipulates that significant trees must be preserved and all roofs must be tiled. This project involved reworking a prime example of an Ivanhoe home which has a relatively complex pattern of use. The original Edwardian house had been the family home for several generations. A more recent studio in the northeast corner of the site housed a dressmaking workshop and served as overflow accommodation for guests. The studio required separate access for customers from the street.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisThe existing house is much loved and the original character of the front rooms had been preserved. But the house did not follow the natural slope of the site, meaning that the north facing living area was elevated from the garden which was accessed via a staircase. Views of the established garden with its enormous conifer trees and access to northern sunlight were underexploited.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionThe brief was to create living spaces, a kitchen and new bedroom with ensuite. The living space was to link in with the garden, take advantage of the views and sun while preserving the original parts of the house and maintaining the amenity of the northeast studio. Care was also required to ensure the upper level bedroom would have views of the treetops without compromising the privacy of the neighbours.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisThe resulting insertion is housed within a deliberately simple geometric form with the intention of bringing a sense of clarity, space, and ease to the home as a whole. Although the form of the extension looks simple, it has been carefully honed. The spaces are arranged in split levels, so that the living area and kitchen drop down closer to the garden level. The upper level bedroom is not so elevated as to be able to be seen from the street, so it does not compete with the original street façade. The outdoor deck is tapered to create space for outdoor dining immediately next to the kitchen. Broad steps, suitable for lounging on, face toward the best garden views. When seen from the back garden the new extension with its double height living space and intricately patterned screen are impressive.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisInside, the living room, with its sloped, double height ceiling, draws the viewer’s gaze up to the finely detailed screen and greenery beyond. The screen casts dappled shade, creating a quality of light that is gentle and bright throughout the house. The algorithmic pattern employed for the screen is repeated throughout the house on glass splashbacks, air-conditioning registers and screen doors. The kitchen, laundry and a study nook are tucked beneath the upper level bedroom. The kitchen is understated, light and functional. It addresses both the living area and outdoor deck with an island bench that has an indoor-outdoor feel when the large sliding panels are drawn back.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisProject gallerySee allShow lessMamun Residence / ShatottoSelected ProjectsFine Arts and Design Studios / BNIMSelected Projects Share Elphin House / JFASave this projectSaveElphin House / JFA “COPY” Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeJulie Firkin ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionIvanhoeAustraliaPublished on August 26, 2019Cite: “Elphin House / JFA” 26 Aug 2019.

Marking the death of BAYAN leader in Manila, Philippines

first_imgBy Renato Reyes, Jr.  “The place of honor is in the line of fire.” – Lean AlejandroSept. 19 — Twenty-five years ago, on 19 September 1987, Lean Alejandro, the first Secretary General of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), was killed when armed men opened fire with automatic weapons on his car as it was about to enter the gate of the headquarters of BAYAN.Lean had just come from a press conference at the National Press Club, where he had called for mass protests against the inordinate and increasing say of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in the 18-month-old administration of then President Corazon C. Aquino.Lean’s assassination was one of many grievous human rights violations committed under the first U.S.-backed Aquino regime. While the Cory regime denounced the killing, it remains unsolved to this day.It is widely believed that the Rebolusyonaryong Alyansang Makabansa (RAM) carried out the dastardly act just as they did the assassination of labor leader Rolando “Ka Lando” Olalia and his driver, Leonor Alay-ay, in 1986, with the objective of strengthening the hand of the rightists and militarists in the Aquino government, if not causing its outright downfall.Earlier this year the long-standing case for double murder of Ka Lando and his driver inched forward with the issuance of warrants of arrest for the accused still at large by RTC Branch 98 judge, Ma. Consejo Gengos-Igualaga.  They are Eduardo Kapunan Jr., Oscar Legaspi, Filomeno Maligaya, Cirilo Almario, Jose Bacera, Fernando Casanova, Ricardo Dicon, Gilbert Galicia, Dennis Jabatan, Gene Paris, Freddie Sumagaysay and Edgar Sumido — all leaders and members of RAM.Despite the alleged restoration of democracy, widespread and grievous human rights violations blackened the first Aquino regime.  Mrs. Aquino “unsheath(ed) the sword of war” and launched another brutal counterinsurgency program against the communist-led revolutionary movement.  In the process, many civilian communities were displaced and terrorized and many more lives were lost, especially due to the abuses of paramilitary forces such as the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit (Cafgu) under the direction and control of the AFP.While martial law had been rescinded and the fascist Marcos dictatorship overthrown, extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, arbitrary arrests and torture still took place at an alarming rate and frequency. The first Aquino regime continued and even exacerbated the anti-people policies of the Marcos regime, notably in relation to agrarian reform, foreign debt service and economic liberalization, deregulation and privatization.Mrs. Aquino also called for the retention of the U.S. military bases, reneging on her position when she was not yet president and even marching in a Malacanang-organized rally to pressure the Philippine Senate to vote in favor of bases retention.It is no surprise that the people’s struggles against exploitation and oppression and for nationalism and democracy continued and even grew in strength.As we commemorate the death of Lean, we also remember the declaration of martial law 40 years ago and the people’s heroic resistance to the Marcos dictatorship, whose victims continue to seek justice.  Justice remains elusive, as well, not only for the family and kin of Lean, but also for the thousands of victims of human rights violations committed under the first Aquino regime.In remembering Lean and his unjust and untimely passing, we note the failure of the first Aquino regime and the succeeding regimes up to the second Aquino regime of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, to render justice and indemnification for all victims of human rights violations. Such failure, along with the continuing anti-people policies carried over from one regime to another, fuel the people’s continuing struggle and resistance.Concretely, the Noynoy regime has failed to deliver on its promise of indemnification for the victims of martial law. It has also not taken any step to release the more than 350 political prisoners all over the country while it had amnestied and set free more than 300 military officials and personnel who had rebelled against the preceding Arroyo regime.Today, we honor Lean and all our martyrs and heroes who valiantly and steadfastly fought for the cause of national and social liberation. We offer our multisectoral march on September 21 to the memory of all those who fought against the U.S.-backed Marcos fascist dictatorship, as we pledge to continue their unfinished struggle for genuine freedom and democracy.The writer is the national Secretary-General of BAYAN-Philippines.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

But city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said that due to problems with the state’s laboratory reporting system, it was possible cases continued to be undercounted.Huntington Hospital was treating 30 patients for COVID-19 on Friday, hospital data showed. Six tests were pending.Los Angeles County public health officials also cautioned they were still working through problems with the state’s data reporting system as they announced 3,116 new COVID-19 cases and 53 new deaths on Friday.“Public Health anticipates a continued reporting of a backlog of cases as the State electronic laboratory system (ELR) reporting delay is addressed,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.But hospitalization rates, which were not affected by the ongoing data glitch, showed movement in the eight direction.Officials reported 1,680 hospitalized COVID-19 patients in L.A.County on Friday, with 30% of them being treated in intensive care units.“Currently, the County is seeing a downward trend in the number of daily hospitalizations,” the county statement said. “Last week, we reported more than 2,000 daily hospitalizations.”A total of 204,167 cases of COVID-19 have been detected in the county since the onset of the pandemic, along with 4,918 fatalities.The county’s positivity rate remained at 10%, with nearly 1.9 million tests administered.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer once again encouraged the public to adhere to social distancing guidelines.“We remain guided by science and data that can be used appropriately to move us forward along the road to recovery in a measured way,” she said. “The lower number of daily hospitalizations we are seeing is an indicator that we are making some progress. However, we need to see lower rates and our future success depends on commitments we each make every day about doing our part, working together and sustaining efforts that get us to the other side of this pandemic.“Our collective goals of slowing the spread of this virus and reopening and keeping open vital community and economic sectors means we must put off the parties, gatherings, and trips to crowded places in order to get to low community transmission rates so we can re-open our schools and get more people back to work,” according to Ferrer.The California Department of Public Health announced 8,436 new infections and 142 additional deaths on Friday.The state had seen 538,416 COVID-19 cases, in all, and 10,011 people had died from it.As of Friday, based on the available data, Los Angeles County accounted for 38% of California’s COVID-19 cases and 49% of the state’s coronavirus deaths.

Union of India”.It is stated that owing to the lack of any Constitutional/statutory rule/ law for fixation of seniority, there always stands a chance/ scope of breaking the provision of seniority.Further, the plea states that if the procedure for the appointment of CJI is in doubt and unconstitutional, talking about independence of judiciary is futile, illusory and day-dreaming. In this context, it is contended that even though the CJI is a different class in terms of administrative powers, salary, oath and office, the Constitution is silent regarding their procedure of appointment.”Under Article 124(2) and 126 of the Constitution of India which relate to the appointment of judges of the Supreme Court and appointment of Acting Chief Justice do not provide any procedure for appointment of CJI and acting CJI on the basis of seniority…. there is complete lack of due process for appointment of the CJI for the reasons best known to the learned framers of the Constitution,” the petitioner states.Calling the recommendation in favour of the next CJI by the outgoing Chief Justice of India much like a tradition/custom of royalty, the plea states that the same lacks constitutional efficacy and sanctity in a Constitutional Democracy like India.Apropos this, the plea seeks quashing or upholding the validity of the Memorandum of Procedure for the appointment of the Chief Justice of India.Additionally, the petitioner has stipulated questions of law pertaining to the procedure of appointment such as whether the current procedure is a constitutionally valid one and is a due process of law.Further, the petitioner has sought a decision on the questions of :Whether there is any seniority rule or is list of the SC judges prepared by the Ministry of law/ Supreme Court of India?Whether the letter of recommendation of the outgoing CJI is a constitutionally valid recommendation as that of the collegium?Whether the President of India is bound to appoint the senior most judge of the SC as CJI on the basis of the recommendation letter of outgoing CJI as per Memorandum of Procedure without any due process of law?Whether the CJI is a different class or not?Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
