With thanksgiving for your remarkable progress in assuring a faithful future for the diocese, today I am calling for the election of the ninth bishop of Bethlehem.In consultation with the Rt. Rev. Clay Matthews, the Episcopal Church’s bishop for pastoral development, and Judy Stark, a consultant recommended by his office who is a daughter of the Diocese of Bethlehem, the Standing Committee will soon seek members for a search committee to discern a slate of nominees for bishop. In time, the Standing Committee will also name a transitions committee to oversee the new bishop’s consecration and welcome to the diocese. Although the final calendar for the search process will be determined by the Standing Committee, I anticipate that we will elect the ninth bishop of Bethlehem in the spring of 2018 and consecrate and seat that person in the fall of that year.During my remaining time as your bishop provisional, I look forward to fostering the shared values and relationships that emerged from our recent diocesan pilgrimage and continuing to work with you on developing a mission strategy to unite our response to God’s call. You will receive further updates about the search for your next bishop from the Standing Committee and, once it is named, from the search committee.I continue to be grateful for this opportunity to serve with you for a time, and I ask you to join me in praying for the leaders in the Diocese of Bethlehem who will participate the search for your next bishop.Faithfully,The Rt.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York General Convention 2018 Au nom du Dieu unique, qui est l’aimant, le bien-aimé, et l’amour débordant. (Amen)Que désires-tu?C’est la première question qui vous est posée quand vous êtes reçu comme postulant dans une communauté monastique, et cette question vous est à nouveau posée quand vous recevez l’habit de novice, et on vous la pose encore quand vous faites les trois vœux bénédictins d’obéissance, de stabilité, et de conversion de vie dans la voie monastique.La question du désir conduit à la Voie bénédictine, et même à la Voie Chrétienne. Dans sa Règle pour les moines, Benoît donne une réponse très simple et très difficile: ne rien préférer au Christ.Vous voyez, Benoit savait que, contrairement à l’image du monachisme dans la culture populaire comme étant une vie austère et sérieuse, la vie monastique est vraiment une histoire d’amour. Depuis 1500 ans la règle de Benoît a fourni une structure et un contexte pour poursuivre le plus profond désir du cœur de complétude et d’unité avec Dieu. La tradition mystique chrétienne appelle cette recherche la poursuite de la “pureté de cœur,” bien que nous puissions la décrire plus justement comme “unité de cœur,” ce qui revient à dire l’unification de tout notre être – corps, esprit, cœur – centré sur l’amour de de celui qui est lui-même Amour.Les communautés monastiques ont toujours été des lieux spacieux dans un monde surpeuplé. Cet espace était certainement ce qui m’a attiré dans la vie bénédictine. Toute ma vie, j’ai été poussé par un désir si profond et si puissant que je ne pouvais pas lui trouver de nom. Ce désir était un secret brûlant au centre de ma vie. Et chaque contexte dans lequel je me trouvais était tout simplement trop petit pour le retenir ou me retenir.Quand je suis venu à Sainte-Croix, où je suis maintenant moine, j’au eu l’intuition que j’avais finalement trouvé une place avec assez d’espace pour ce désir. C’était certainement l’un des rares endroits où j’avais trouvé des gens qui hochaient la tête en connaissance de cause quand je mentionnais ce profond désir sans nom. Je vous mets au défi d’essayer de parler de désir à l’heure du café après un service, et notez comment les gens vous regardent.Je me souviens notamment d’Andrew. C’était un vieux moine écossais avec un sens de l’humour mordant, qui s’asseyait avec moi lors de mes visites au monastère. Il m’a regardé droit dans les yeux, il a regardé profondément dans mon cœur comme seuls ceux qui ont vécu la vie de foi pendant des décennies peuvent le faire, et il a dit: “Je t’aime.” Et comme les larmes coulaient sur mon visage, il a dit , d’une voix qui me disait qu’il comprenait: “Oui, ça fait mal d’être aimé.”Ça fait vraiment mal d’être aimé. Et ça fait aussi mal d’aimer. Ce qui est probablement une des raisons pour lesquelles beaucoup d’entre nous évitent d’aimer aussi pleinement, profondément et librement que Jésus nous appelle à le faire. Dans ce monde si souvent étroit d’esprit, amer et violent (et ce de plus en plus) nous endurcissons nos cœurs pour les empêcher de se briser. Mais c’est seulement le cœur brisé qui a assez d’espace pour aimer comme nous le devrions. Et c’est seulement en se brisant que nos coeurs se transforment de la pierre à la chair.La vie monastique participe, ici et maintenant, à l’éternité. C’est le secret de son espace considérable . Dans la consécration du quotidien, la règle de Benoît met en évidence la sainteté de la vie incarnée où, comme il le fait remarquer, les outils de la cuisine ou du jardin sont aussi précieux que la vaisselle de l’autel. Avec l’éternité comme contexte, il y a assez d’espace pour qu’apparaisse toute la vie d’une personne.Comme ce processus est différent du processus d’éducation, de construction de l’identité et de réussite dans la société contemporaine et même dans l’Église d’aujourd’hui ! Dans la vie bénédictine, vous ne «devenez pas». Vous ne «faites» rien. A la place, au cours de votre vie, vous vous abandonnez au désir de Dieu pour recoller les fragments de votre vie pour que, ce qui semblait mutilé, laid, ou honteux devienne, à travers le mouvement persistant et aimant de Dieu, beau, entier, et saint.La vision bénédictine de la vie chrétienne, en fait, affirme que ce sont précisément ces parties de nous-mêmes que nous aimerions le plus dénier qui sont les portes de la sainteté. Nous ne devons pas abandonner les fragments intérieurs honteux, ni les exiler ou les effacer, comme si c’était en notre pouvoir. Non, nous devons permettre à Dieu, dans le contexte de notre vie communautaire, de guérir et de transformer ces parties afin que elles aussi transportent un sang nourrissant dans tout le corps.Si ce mouvement vers la complétude est vrai au niveau individuel, combien plus vrai est-il pour la communauté. Pour les bénédictins, le salut n’est jamais individuel. Il est toujours communautaire. Chaque membre de la communauté monastique est essentiel à la santé de tout le corps, chacun ou chacune a son unique contribution à apporter. Quand un frère ou une soeur a besoin d’un médecin, la communauté en fournit un, qui peut inclure des mesures disciplinaires, jamais dans le but de punir ou d’humilier mais toujours de guérir, de transformer et de réintégrer ce frère ou cette soeur dans le corps de la communauté, où leur épanouissement est notre épanouissement.Aucun d’entre nous ne peut être sauvé isolément. C’est tous ou aucun d’entre nous. Parce que l’amour n’est jamais définitivement satisfait. Comme n’importe quel moine ou n’importe quel amant vous le dira, plus votre désir est satisfait, plus profond ce désir devient. Cela n’a pas de limite, parce que, finalement, notre désir est d’être en union totale avec celui qui nous a créés et qui nous soutient, celui dont l’Amour est notre vrai nom et notre vraie nature.Plus je vis la vie monastique et chrétienne, plus je suis convaincu que ni personne et ni rien n’est au-delà de l’amour de Dieu. Et que, aussi sombre que soit l’époque dans laquelle nous vivons, Dieu travaille toujours, à travers chacun de nous, à briser le cœur du monde afin qu’il devienne un cœur de chair.C’est une vision difficile dans les temps dans lesquels nous vivons. Les forces du mal tourbillonnent autour de nous et elles semblent resserrer leur emprise plutôt que de la relâcher. Et pourtant, même et probablement surtout, quand le mal semble le plus fort, nous sommes d’autant plus appelés à permettre à nos coeurs de s’ouvrir et à aimer sans réserve.Je comprends l’impulsion de soumettre et vaincre le mal. Mais de telles impulsions violentes font en réalité partie de l’emprise du mal sur nous. Bien que nous puissions et devons résister au mal, nous ne pouvons jamais le détruire. Tel n’est pas notre pouvoir. Au contraire, nous sommes appelés à rendre témoignage à celui qui peut guérir et intégrer le mal, à celui qui peut briser le mal et transformer même le cœur le plus dur en chair. Nous sommes appelés à montrer le chemin, à travers nos propres cœurs de chair, à celui qui peut transformer et convertir le mal en bien, pour qu’à la fin, même Lucifer porte de nouveau la lumière de Dieu.James Stephens exprime magnifiquement cette idée dans son poème “La Plénitude du Temps”Sur un trône de fer rouilléPassé l’étoile la plus éloignée de l’espaceJ’ai vu Satan assis seul,Vieux et exténué était son visage;Parce que son travail était fait et il seReposait dans l’éternité.Et à lui venant du soleilVint son père et son amiDisant, maintenant le travail est faitL’inimitié est terminée :Et il guida Satan à desParadis qu’il connaissait.Gabriel sans un froncement de sourcils,Uriel sans une lance,Raphaël vint en chantantAccueillant leur ancien pair,Et ils l’ont assis à côté deCelui qui avait été crucifié.Il n’y a rien ni personne qui, en fin de compte, n’appartienne pas à Dieu. Il n’y a aucune partie de nous, individuellement ou collectivement, qui ne puisse être atteinte par l’amour de Dieu qui guérit et réconcilie. Et si nous suivons les profonds désirs de notre cœur, si nous ne préférons rien au Christ et laissons l’amour du Christ briser et remplir nos coeurs, qui sait quel genre de sanctuaire spacieux nous pourrions devenir?

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Sony and YouthNet are working on +U (“plus you”), a mobile volunteering application that uses YouthNet’s volunteering database Do-it to deliver “bite-size” or microvolunteering opportunities to a wider audience.“+U” (formerly known as Greenbook) was the final concept to emerge from Sony’s crowdsourcing platform, Open Planet Ideas. It will combine mobile volunteering opportunities with social and gaming benefits. Potential volunteers will be matched with local projects through geo-location technologies and then awarded points based on the volunteer opportunities they fulfil. Users can then share their experiences via social networks such as Facebook, “making volunteering faster, easier and more social”.Emma Thomas, CEO of YouthNet, the charity that runs Do-it, said: “Do-it is the most comprehensive database of volunteering opportunities in the UK, offering more than one million opportunities to volunteer from 28,000 organisations, so there is huge potential to develop the way in which we encourage and motivate people to volunteer”.Sony and YouthNet aim to share the preview version of “+U” in the coming months to test and trial the system. It will then be released as an open source application for any organisation to use. The date for the final application will be announced in September 2011.The Open Planet Ideas community platform, launched in September 2010 in partnership with WWF, invited the public to imagine how existing Sony technologies could be repurposed to tackle environmental and sustainability issues.www.openplanetideas.com Howard Lake | 1 June 2011 | News 42 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: corporate Digital Volunteering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis
Linkedin ReddIt Facebook ReddIt Previous articleTCU wins 2017 NIT Championship game over Georgia Tech, 88-56Next articleWomen’s basketball attendance is still “not where it needs to be” Michelle Ross RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR At a previous commencement, Boschini said, “TCU’s third cardinal goal is to sustain an environment of rich personal interaction enhanced by outstanding facilities and technology.”To fulfill the campuses goal, Boschini said TCU has already taken many green initiatives since his arrival to campus in 2003.One initiative is the underground water sensors, which sense when the grass needs to be watered, Boschini said. Prior to 2003, the university over-watered all the lawns and the grass would be watered even after a rainstorm.Additionally, Boschini said Market Square has made changes to help the environment by taking away the traditional cafeteria trays and modifying the silverware.“Our silverware isn’t metal anymore,” Boschini said. “They are made out of potatoes.”Vice Chancellor Cavins-Tull said TCU uses plant based products for disposable cutlery to reduce the amount of plastic heading to the landfill.Boschini said green initiatives are not just around the campus commons, but are also in the campus’ construction, renovation, facility and management practices.Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility, Scharbauer Hall, The BLUU, TCU Admissions Building and Sherley Hall are just a few of TCU’s LEED-certified buildings on campus.LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, according to U.S. Green Building Council website. LEED inspires individuals to change the way buildings and communities are planned and is a third-party verification for eco-friendly buildings.Eco-friendly or green buildings can become LEED certified and receive a certain amount of points by addressing multiple sustainability issues.A building’s number of points then translates into four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.Boschini said TCU’s goal is to make all their buildings LEED certified and multiple of them have reached the gold certification.Students not only get to live and learn about sustainability during their time on campus but can also take greener initiatives at Frog Camp.At Eco Frog Camp students travel to Costa Rica in the summer and learn about conservation and sustainability at a TCU’s biology research station.Because of all of TCU’s sustainability efforts, the Princeton review said TCU is one of the three Texas universities recognized as one of the country’s top “green” schools.

News June 1, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Paris visit by international predator Vladimir Putin May 21, 2021 Find out more Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown RussiaEurope – Central Asia Organisation News News to go further Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Read in Arabic / بالعربيةIn anticipation of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to France today, Reporters Without Borders activists joined with Russian, Syrian and Iranian activists in staging a demonstration in Paris at midday against the crackdowns under way in Russia, Syria and Iran. The starting point for the demonstration was Pont Alexandre III, a bridge named after a 19th century Russian Tsar.Chanting “Putin, Bashar, stop the repression” and “No veto on human rights,” the protesters urged the Russian leader to heed the calls to democratize Russian society and stop supporting the world’s most repressive regimes, starting with Syria and Iran, two countries where journalists pay dearly for trying to cover government-orchestrated crackdowns.“Putin is not just responsible for the dramatic loss of freedoms in Russia in the past decade,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Censorship and repression are also an integral part of the political ‘model’ he promotes internationally. “On the pretext of combating terrorism or promoting ‘traditional values,’ Russia plays a leading role in efforts to suppress freedom of expression and information in many international bodies. It is with Moscow’s complicity that the massacres have continued in Syria for more than 14 months and it is with Moscow’s support that the crackdown continues in Iran.”Putin was due to arrive in France this afternoon, after visiting Belarus and Germany. This is his first international trip since the start of his third term as president. The agenda for his talks in Paris with French President François Hollande includes the situation in Syria as well as energy and trade. Repressive heritage disputed in Russia “This visit comes at a remarkable time in Russia,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Putin has had to confront an unprecedented wave of unrest since his election, one that highlights the widening gap between the regime and Russian society. “The election campaign and his installation were accompanied by repeated intimidation of the media and suppression of peaceful demonstrations. In a frank and sincere dialogue, Putin would have to be told that this new mandate is his last chance to break with the repressive system he has created, both at home and abroad.”Putin’s first two terms, from 2000 to 2008, were marked by reassertion of control over most media, especially TV stations, total impunity for violence against journalists (of whom at least 26 have been killed in connection with their work since 2000) and imposition of an autocratic and brutal regime in Chechnya headed by his protégé, Ramzan Kadyrov. This heritage has been challenged by the unprecedented protests since December 2011.Within the United Nations, Russia blocks all binding resolutions on human rights and, together with China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, is promoting a resolution that would give member states a free hand to censor the Internet. In the UN Human Rights Council, Russia is heading a coalition of states that are trying to use “traditional values” and national idiosyncrasies as pretexts for disputing the universality of human rights.The fact that Putin reserved Belarus’s authoritarian regime the honour of receiving the first international visit of his new mandate says volumes about his commitment to human rights. Belarus saw a violent crackdown after a presidential election in December 2010 and more than 100 journalists were arrested in 2011 alone. Open complicity in Syria The Syrian government has been massacring its civilian population for 14 months with Russia’s complicity. Moscow continues to oppose any sanctions against Damascus, despite many appeals from the international community. It is no longer possible to keep track of all the civilian casualties. They include many journalists, who have been paying a high price.The terms of a 12 April ceasefire that UN special envoy Kofi Annan negotiated between the government and opposition forces included freedom of the media, freedom of assembly and the release of all political prisoners. It was never respected. Despite an international observer presence, 108 people were slaughtered last weekend in Houla. No one was convinced by Bashar al-Assad’s insistence that his soldiers and militiamen, the notorious shabiha, were not to blame.Ever since the start of the protests in March 2011, Assad and his regime have imposed a complete news blackout while stepping up their own propaganda. Journalists, bloggers and ordinary citizens and activists acting as journalists have been paying a high price for their determination to cover the atrocities taking place. Many, including four foreign reporters, have been killed.Journalists, bloggers and activists are systematically tracked down, arrested and tortured. Ordinary citizens who are contacted by foreign media are also arrested and convicted. More than 30 professional and amateur journalists are currently detained.

We urge the CNC to lift these sanctions.”The CNC announced on 13 December that Sidibe was banned from broadcasting for a week and that his programme, called “La Ronde des Journalistes,” was suspended for five weeks.At the same time, Espace FM received a formal warning that “Les Grandes Gueules,” one of Conakry’s most popular radio programmes, was guilty of “repeated violations of professional conduct and ethics.”The suspension of “La Ronde des Journalistes” was prompted by a complaint which presidential adviser Fodé Idrissa Touré, also known as “Briqui Momo”, lodged with the CNC.The legitimacy of the CNC’s decisions has been challenged by the Guinean Union of Free Radio and TV Broadcasters (Urtelgui), which said in a statement that “the alleged defamation cited in these two decisions is a matter for the courts. Only a judge can decide whether defamation took place, not the CNC.” Urging the CNC to rescind its decisions, the statement added that “government officials and private individuals are hiding behind the CNC in order to protect themselves from media criticism, even when it is well-founded.” Reporters Without Borders criticized the CNC’s overzealous and repressive tendencies in a July 2011 report entitled “Turning the page: hopes for media freedom in Niger and Guinea.” More information.Photo : SEYLLOU DIALLO / AFP Guinea : RSF and AIPS call for release of two imprisoned journalists April 9, 2021 Find out more RSF_en
