Charles H. Morris, D. Min. says: People Tags [Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts press release] Effective Feb. 24., the Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas will begin serving both the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Conference United Church of Christ as missioner for creation care. What may possibly be the first joint appointment of this kind between the two churches represents the effort to strengthen ecumenical collaboration, communication and Christian witness around the critical issue of climate change.The Rev. Dr. Jim Antal, conference minister and president of the Massachusetts Conference, United Church of Christ said this of the joint appointment: “Climate change teaches us that we’re all in this together. This first of its kind sharing of a staff person between the UCC and the Episcopal Church echoes this reality. By focusing on the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced, this partnership of the two largest Protestant denominations in the Commonwealth will amplify the essential role people of faith must play to restore the Eden into which we were born.”Addressing environmental degradation from a Christian vantage point became Bullitt-Jonas’ central ministry in January of 2014 when she accepted the call to serve as Missioner for Creation Care for the Episcopal Diocese at the request of Bishop Doug Fisher. Since that time, she has been active in organizing public witness, communicating the most current information, and representing people of faith in the conversation to preserve, protect and cherish the earth. She seeks to inspire and support a wave of religious activism to address the climate crisis, deepen reverence for God’s creation, and create a more just and sustainable society.Fisher, who has been deeply engaged in deepening the shared ministry of the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, is very excited about Margaret’s appointment in the United Church of Christ: “Climate change threatens the future of nothing less than God’s creation on this planet. Of course religious denominations and faith traditions should come together in common cause to work for the gift of life God has given us. With great gratitude for my friends, Margaret Bullitt-Jonas and Jim Antal, I rejoice in this mission of collaboration and embrace the hope that we will inspire our society to care for the generations that follow us.” Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Posted Feb 24, 2016 Rector Smithfield, NC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR 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 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Press Release Service Rector Albany, NY Environment & Climate Change, Submit a Job Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Washington, DC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Featured Jobs & Calls February 24, 2016 at 11:42 pm Ecumenically, and climatologically, this is the kairos time, the fullness of time, for this all to come together!

Inspired by traditional shapes and the surrounding nature, the chalet design is a unique architecture tailor-made for its residents. The owners wanted a warm space, fit to host family and friends, in harmony with the environment, a space that breathes fresh air and replenishment. The GRAND PIC cottage offers, through simplicity and sober physicality, a unique experience of symbiosis between nature and architecture.Save this picture!© Felix MichaudSave this picture!Save this picture!© Felix MichaudThe design of the cottage results from a sensitive reading of the magnificent woods in which it is located. Before even starting to imagine the project, the objective was to let ourselves be guided and inspired by the terrain’s characteristics. This experience of the terrain, from the very start, allowed us to seize all the potential of the different ambiances that were present. These ambiances directed the APPAREIL architecture team’s work. Each move was influenced by a desire to optimise the space’s intrinsic qualities.Save this picture!© Felix MichaudUpon arrival at the site, beyond the building, the team considered the exterior spaces. In the periphery, the outfitting of a parking space allows residents to leave the car and give space to a pathway, from which the cottage emerges through the trees. The pathway transforms into a cedar sidewalk that leads to both pavilions. The interior plane is organised around a central technical core. On the ground floor, the partitions were rendered minimally, freeing the living spaces. The kitchen, partially integrated with the core, benefits from a large storage space. On the second floor, the central core prolongs itself, this time into a dormitory zone for guests. Interior openings, overlooking the ground floor spaces, accentuate the influx of light and create a link between the two levels.Save this picture!© Felix MichaudIn contrast to the black monochrome exterior, the interior overflows with light through its openings, and through the brightness of its materials. On the walls, the Russian plywood was highlighted. The omnipresence of light wood tinges the interior light, giving it similar characteristics to the light under the nearby vegetal cover. The wood’s texture on all walls and ceilings of the interior envelope allow the shape of the vernacular-inspired main interior volume to be accentuated. The objective of creating a sober and warm space for the owners was made possible through an architecture steeped in simplicity. As much through its volume and its design as through its exterior and interior coverings, the GRAND PIC cottage offers a timeless construction inspired by Nordic traditions.Save this picture!© Felix MichaudProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Call for Artists in Residence: Artists in ArchitectureOpportunitiesMaría Emilia House / Mínimo Común ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Grand-Pic Chalet / APPAREIL architectureSave this projectSaveGrand-Pic Chalet / APPAREIL architecture Niconova Area: 146 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: Felix Michaud Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Felix Michaud+ 13Curated by Paula Pintos Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeAPPAREIL architectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinCanadaPublished on May 01, 2019Cite: “Grand-Pic Chalet / APPAREIL architecture ” 01 May 2019.

Celebrities should not feel guilty about benefiting from charity partnershipsA study of celebrity advocates’ own views of their involvement – published in the IJNVSM in May – says that celebrities support causes for a variety of motives that lie and a continuum from egoistic to altruistic.Sean Kelly and Gareth Morgan (of the Centre for Voluntary Sector Research at Sheffield Hallam University) and Tracy Coule form Sparks Charity examined the views and motivations of the 591 celebrity volunteers who support Sparks Charity, looking at all the other charities they support.They found that celebrities engage with charities to “achieve important psychological goals” and that “feeling good and having fun” was cited as one of the best aspects of working with charitiesThe authors say that: “No [celebrity] volunteer should be made to feel guilty about deriving pleasure from supporting good causes”.

Howard Lake | 22 August 2014 | News Celebrity advocacy reinforces idea that the only ‘effective action’ is giving moneyThe culmination of a major three-year investigation into celebrity advocacy in poverty relief – published this month in the International Journal of Cultural Studies – concluded that charities’ use of celebrities in the UK was “ineffective”.They say there is a “widespread belief in the power of celebrity advocacy that belies the evidence of its actual reach and influence”.For example, more than two-thirds of more than 1,200 people surveyed could not link any celebrity with a list of seven well-known charities and aid organisations (NGOs) the researchers mentioned.And 38 per cent “strongly” or “mildly” disapproved of celebrities supporting poverty reduction in the developing world.But the study finds that, counter-intuitively, people who are less interested in celebrity culture are those with the most positive attitudes towards celebrities supporting poverty relief; while those who are receptive to celebrity news are less favourable to their involvement in poverty relief.It could be that the opposition to celebrities becoming involved in poverty relief is because, according to Illicic and Baxter’s research, they don’t see the “functional fit”.The researchers – Dan Brockington of Manchester University and Spencer Henson of Sussex University – say that “underpinning” the comments made in the focus groups stage of their research is that celebrity advocacy promotes the belief that “charitable action is about giving and receiving money”.They say celebrity advocacy “does little to promote active involvement with causes other than by giving money”, and criticises it for not challenging the “charitable frame of reference” that the most effective action citizens can take is to donate money.The paper also points out celebrities often gets more out of advocacy than the charity they are supporting, even though this wasn’t the reason they embarked on their involvement with the charity.But the third recent paper on charity advocacy finds there’s nothing wrong with this. 110 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Orange Grove Blvd. Monday afternoon to stand before a panel and interview for the opportunity to be a part of the 2017 Tournament of Roses Royal Court. The 99 year old tradition had the young women mostly excited and nervous as they were given the chance to leave a lasting impression with hopes of being invited back and to secure a spot on the Royal Court and to hopefully earn the title of Rose Queen.“The selection committee is looking for someone that is going to be a great ambassador for the Tournament of Roses,” said Tournament of Roses Vice President Amy Wainscott.The young women came from a range of eligible high schools the region, including Pasadena City College, and were allotted a fifteen second second interview in front of the selection committee to state why they are participating in the Royal Court.“It’s an anonymous process so they are issued a number and we don’t know their names, their schools, or where they live,” explained Wainscott about the interview process.Participants are evaluated on a wide range of qualities including poise, personality, speaking ability and overall demeanor with academic achievement also playing a key factor, according to the Tournament of Roses website.“I’m excited to meet people that I find inspirational,” said one participant named Audrey.“It’s a great opportunity to participate in what my city offers,” said another participant named Deana.There are four separate interview processes that lead up to a total of seven young women that will be named the 2017 Royal Court with one of them named the 99th Rose Queen on October 20.Participants are notified by email if they are being invited to participate in the next interview session.“I’m looking forward to meeting people that I wouldn’t normally meet. I’m looking forward to practicing interviewing and getting a feel for this and the real world,” said another participant.Participants often find the experience rewarding and enjoyable, according to the website. Participants have the opportunity to meet previous Royal Court members, make new friends, learn about Pasadena’s tradition of the Tournament of Roses and be a part of history in the search for a Royal Court.“Being a part of the Royal Court has opened up so many doors for me and so many opportunities,” said 2016 Royal Court Princess Donaly Marquez who now attends college at Cal State Dominguez Hills.The young women that do make the cut have a busy month ahead of them in the days leading to the famed Rose Parade.

Vijaysen Reddy further observed,”the State cannot take advantage of its own lapses, whereby, on one hand, the State does not effectively oppose the bail application or seeks cancellation of bail and on the other hand, State finds an easy way method to pass detention order by invoking preventive detention laws.”BackgroundThe detention order vide 32O/PD-4lHYDl2079, dated 01.02.2020 was passed against Mohd. Nawaz @ Babulal, by the 2nd respondent, Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad, in the exercise of powers conferred under Sub-Section (2) of Section 3 of the Telangana Prevention of Dangerous Activities of Bootleggers, Dacoits, Drug Offenders, Goondas, immoral Traffic Offenders, Land Grabbers, Spurious Seed Offenders, Insecticide Offenders, Fertilizer Offenders, Food Adulteration Offenders, Fake Document Offenders, Scheduled Commodities Offenders, Forest Offenders, Gaming Offenders, Sexual Offenders, Explosive Substances Offenders, Arms Offenders, Cyber Crime Offenders and White Collar or Financial Offenders Act, 1986 (Amendment Act No.13 of 2018) and as confirmed by the State vide G.O.Rt.No.661, General Administration (SPL) Law & Order Department dated 03.03.2020, are challenged in this Writ of Habeas Corpus as being illegal and arbitrary.Further, the detaining authority had considered five cases as grounds for his detention.The Government Pleader for Home submitted that the detenu is involved in a series of theft cases and in the recent past the detenu was involved in committing theft of cash and mobile phones from the passengers travelling in sharing auto-rickshaw in the limits of Hyderabad and Cyberabad Police Commissionerate along with his associates in an organized manner and he has been creating large scale fear and panic among the general public by committing such offences, and thus he has been acting in a manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order, apart from disturbing the peace, tranquillity and social harmony in society.Further it was also stated that there is an imminent possibility of his committing similar offences, which would be detrimental to public order, unless he is prevented from doing so by an appropriate order of detention.Counsel for the Petitioner submitted that in all the referred crimes, the detenu was released on conditional bail and thereafter, neither he violated any of the conditions imposed by the Court nor was involved in any of the cases.It was alleged that the detaining authority passed the impugned detention order on flimsy ground without any basis in a mechanical manner, without application of mind.Further, it was submitted that the crimes wherein the detenu is allegedly involved, can be dealt with under ordinary law.Court’s AnalysisThe Court observed that it appears that in the above crimes the Prosecution opposed the grant of bail to the detenu and even after that, the concerned Courts have granted conditional bails to the detenu.In this context, the Court noted,”If the detaining authority feels that even after strongly opposing the bail, the concerned Courts have granted bail, it is always left open for the authorities to move an application for cancellation of bail either before the same Court or higher Court. Without resorting to such steps, the State chose to invoke provisions of preventive detention law and the same amounts to arbitrary exercise of powers conferred under the preventive detention laws.” (emphasis supplied)Further, the Court took into account the fact that the detenu was granted conditional bails and there is no allegation of violation of bail conditions. In such circumstances, the Court observed, the State cannot be permitted to bypass the ordinary law and resort to provisions of preventive detention laws.Also, the Court was of the view that the impugned detention order is vitiated also for the reason that under the above five crimes relate to specific individuals/victims and come within the ambit of maintenance of law and order and not public order.In the light of the above discussion, the impugned detention order was set aside. The Writ Petition was allowed.Case Details:Case Title: Mohd. Jaffar v. State of Telangana and Ors.Case No.: WP No. 10230 of 2020Quorum: Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B.
