I just hope TEC stops funding bureaucratic structures…out of sheer dignity the Anglican Communion should refuse any funding from us, after all our money is sinful and will taint the holiness of their churches Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Margaret Sjoholm-Franks says: Richard McClellan says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Ginny Berkey says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Doug Desper says: Anglican Communion, January 15, 2016 at 3:09 pm It does occur to me, upon reflection of the above, that TEC functions more like a sect. I.e., its membership is a tiny portion of its host country’s population; an important proportion of its membership is not grown but drawn from other Christian denominations; it generally can do whatever it wants without much national or denominational consequence; and it is as likely to create its justifications as it is to discover them in scripture, tradition, or (usual, common, general) reason. This is not a reproach; I admire it. It is far freer than, say the poor old Church of England. Only the fact that it is, proportionally in the Anglican Communion, so wealthy, gives one pause for reflection so that innovation by wealth is not imposed. But perhaps, indeed, it is time to proclaim that faith, the voice of the divine spirit, or the winds of the future, call it to remain faithful to its truth. It is certainly a kinder, a wiser and more generous outfit of enthusiasts than, say, that in Uganda. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS January 15, 2016 at 1:26 pm Your memory of the history is good. As well as the interpretation of the factual pattern January 17, 2016 at 10:41 pm Bravo to the Anglican Communion for the sanctions against us for our arrogance! I don’t agree at all with the Anglican bishops Neanderthal views…but I do commend them for sticking it to us for going out on our self-centered limb…and fun to see our limb cut off for thinking our views are the only views. Let’s face it…we are a dying denomination which will disappear like a fart in the wind! Christopher Johnson says: Sean Storm says: Curate Diocese of Nebraska January 18, 2016 at 3:15 pm Politics even in the Church – sigh. What happened to the belief we are all God’s children and we should “love our neighbors as ourselves”? I may not agree with some choices people make, but it is not my place to judge. Spring Ryding says: [Episcopal News Service – Canterbury, England] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry expresses the importance of mission partnerships, relationships grounded in common faith, companion diocese and parish-to-parish relationships; relationships that follow the way of Jesus of Nazareth in addressing poverty and hunger. Speaking outside the gates to Canterbury Cathedral, Curry said these things are the true strengths of the Anglican Communion. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Video: Presiding Bishop responds to primates’ actions, stresses relationships January 16, 2016 at 5:00 pm Hi Faye are you the Faye Carroll who plays the piano brilliantly and lived in Days Bay during the late 1970’s Mary Greig-Clayton Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, January 21, 2016 at 7:24 pm I like the statement, “God isn’t finished with us yet.”We do need to embrace our differences and not exclude people because of differences. There is no ONE true way, but there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism. There is oneGod who is father/mother of all. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Collierville, TN Associate Rector Columbus, GA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit a Press Release Submit an Event Listing Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET January 15, 2016 at 12:10 pm Being sanctioned isn’t being removed from the Communion. It is a reduction to observer status.So say at least 3/4 of the Primates.We must be honest — really honest right now. Those with working memories know that we have spoken (as a Province) with a forked tongue while agreeing to positions as a member of the Communion. In 1998 and again in 2007 we agreed to self-restraint on making seismic shifts in sexuality issues and broke our word within months. Before 2012 notable bishops of this Church charged ahead with redefining marriage without General Convention authorization and without honoring the word as a member of the Anglican Communion. No consequences came. If that’s what TEC’s power base wanted, then fine. But, with the curtain now open, let’s stop messing about. Let’s just get on with breaking from the Anglican Communion. Have the honesty to do it. Considering the present accusations, rejections, and confrontations being expressed in the Episcopal blogosphere I don’t think this Church’s power base can take back what is being flung. The Communion’s memories will be working three years from now and recall the names and faces, and acid words of these days. Oddly, the majority of the Primates don’t seem panicked about the threats to withhold money. As one commenter just said…”Life will go on”. Oddly they don’t see the need to justify times of weakness and mistakes by their Provinces to our Province when we dare not hear our own story.Instead of 85 million members the Anglican Communion would have 83.5 million (absent us). But we cannot continue to have it both ways. To disparage, accuse, defame, and blame the others (in elitist and racist tones), and want the legitimacy that being aligned with the ancient See of Canterbury brings to this Province is hypocrisy. Choose, but stop the “having it both ways”, “change them” temper tantrums. We’re still a part — but what has been recognized is that we’re doing things APART from the previously (and repeatedly) stated positions. Now, we must live with the discipline resulting from the “bridge too far” choices in this Province — or get on with quitting the Communion. Then, the pews can decide where to go. The day of choice has arrived. Fr Carl G Carlozzi says: Stewart David Wigdor says: Diane Corlett says: Primates Meeting 2016, An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Press Release Service January 23, 2016 at 10:21 am Unfortunately, ALL churches run either from a right leading fundamentalist point of view or more of a liberal progressive stance. EVERY CHURCH. Jesus specifically never spoke of homosexual marriage or abortion yet he did speak of what God has brought together let no human dissolve. But don’t let the fundamentalists fool you. These are the same churches that openly support bigotry, genocide and war for profits all in the name of “spreading the Gospel”. I’m committed more and more, as it pertains to Christianity, to simply read the words in red and pattern my life after what they, and the ONE who uttered them, says. It’s not an easy life, but should be peaceful. As it pertains to the Sacraments, I will remain with the Episcopal Church for very personal reasons. As Jerry Springer often remarks, “Be good to yourself…and each other.” New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Belleville, IL January 18, 2016 at 12:39 am More importantly, why hasn’t the Episcopal Church broken relations with these provinces? The Africans at least have the courage of their convictions. January 21, 2016 at 12:30 am Baptists can observe Anglicans. Remaining steadfast on this is more important to me than even remaining in the Communion. The “sanctioners” have excommunicated themselves from Anglicanism by the very act of sanctioning. Director of Music Morristown, NJ Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA January 15, 2016 at 11:17 am Because they don’t want too like a lot of other dioceses and churches that don’t allow a woman to preside over communion or take up an offering plate. Each diocese has it own rules pertaining to women and what duties they may perform. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Comments (17) Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Pittsburgh, PA January 16, 2016 at 1:23 pm We are in a time when mankind feels most liberated in their sexuality. But even so can man or woman in thier highest human accolade be allowed to diminish the Holiness of the Church or the Divinity of God’s Word? The Church is a place of worship to a God that let our Lord be crucified so we would be forgiven of our sins and equally important so we could enter Heaven; even having life on earth where God dwells within us. The Anglican Communion is wrong in the severity of its judgement but is right on its understanding of the Church of Jesus Christ. Wasn’t this proven when Churches lost buildings and lands they paid for to the National Church in courts of Law because they would not recognize same sex marriage or gay or lesbian clergy? Where can a worshipper go if he has no Church on earth only to a place of prayer asking to experience his or her Lord from Heaven. If your Church is not Holy how will you want Heaven? A place of God’s Throne. In that Heaven is a royal priesthood. And that is you. You cannot destroy the sacrament of marriage nor have gay or lesbian clergy. You can love whom you want but it is Love you seek. Because you will not be ready to welcome our Lord to your Church. Find the Love that seeks God to come to you. You may be surprised.

We will prayer for you. God bless you so much. February 18, 2016 at 4:11 pm Seriously, why cannot we all just get along? The answer to the ordination of women and gay marriage seems so simple to me at least. Why cannot we, as a Communion, agree that each Province has a different “take” on certain things then other Provinces. Why cannot we simply say this…”I do not agree with what you are doing, but God bless you, I still love you, and while I don’t hold the same opinion as you do I still support you and your right ti difference. In every diocese in the Anglican Communion there are churches that are so High they remind people of the Roman Catholic Church in the 1950s, and in the very same city there are churches that are so Low they seem almost like the old Methodist Church.

An area of triangular and irregular shape, a tree and an enormous desire to be more integrated, to be more responsible with the environment where we live, to build with more cleanliness. There was already another project for the same lot, with the same wishes, but another interpretation. The new project should be faithful to the smooth slope of the lot and enhance the view of the reforested area in front of the house and share with Red Angico the status of main attraction on the land.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoThe program of the house accommodates on four intermediate levels, with a difference of half a ceiling between them, where the ground floor, which includes the common areas and leisure, is suspended from the floor, leaving the land practically intact with its unevenness. The garage and service area are located on the lowest level to the right of the lot. Right above and to the left are the social and leisure areas, where the intermediate floor is accessed with accommodation for views and an office. Further up, on the last level, is the master suite and the terrace at the height of Angico’s canopy and from where it is possible to see the forest at the height of the trees.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoThe choice for a mixed construction system, between metallic system and glass, together with reinforced concrete and ceramic brick masonry, we managed to rationalize the construction site, equalize costs at the same time that we were able to make a lighter and glazed architecture with large free spans in social areas. The structure of metal beams and pillars was used in areas where the need for large spans was essential. However, where compartmentalization would be inevitable, as in the bedroom and bathroom area, the choice for the masonry system and conventional reinforced concrete structure was the most rational solution.Save this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoSave this picture!© Estúdio São Paulo – Guilherme MarcatoFree areas and trees can be seen from virtually every room in the house. Integration with the external area is always desirable in places where this is possible. And in this case, not only was it possible, it was practically an imposition of future residents.

Weatherford successfully completes financial restructuring. Image credit: aymane jdidi from Pixabay. Weatherford International plc today announced that it has completed its financial restructuring and emerged from chapter 11 protection.The Company emerges with a stronger financial foundation having reduced approximately $6.2 billion of outstanding funded debt, secured $2.6 billion in exit financing facilities, including a $450 million revolving credit facility, secured a $195 million letter of credit facility, and secured over $900 million of liquidity.“This is a notable day for Weatherford as we have emerged as a stronger, more focused organization,” said Mark A. McCollum, President and Chief Executive Officer of Weatherford. “With renewed balance sheet strength, a strong customer base and a portfolio designed to meet the needs of our industry, we believe we are well-positioned to build on our reputation as a leader in the oilfield services sector and to capitalize on the growth opportunities ahead. I want to thank our dedicated employees, customers and suppliers, who continued to believe in Weatherford and worked with us to achieve this successful balance sheet recapitalization.”Weatherford expects its newly issued ordinary shares will initially resume trading on the OTC Markets with the Company ultimately planning to transition trading to the New York Stock Exchange, subject to the receipt of applicable approvals. The transition to the New York Stock Exchange is expected to occur after the Company reports results for its fourth quarter ending December 31, 2019, holds an investor call, and completes the fresh-start accounting process, which are expected to be completed by early March (details to follow).New Board of DirectorsA new Board of Directors was appointed upon the Company’s emergence, providing critical expertise and experience to Weatherford as it enters the next phase of growth and innovation. The new Board of Directors consists of seven members, including Chairman of the Board Thomas R. Bates, Jr., John F. Glick, Neal P. Goldman, Gordon T. Hall, Mark A. McCollum, Jacqueline Mutschler, and Charles M. Sledge. Regarding the new Board, Mr. McCollum continued: “The knowledge and engagement of our new Board of Directors will better enable us to deliver on the opportunities in front of us and remain focused on achieving objectives that are in the best interest of all the Company’s stakeholders.”Weatherford was represented in the recapitalization by Latham & Watkins LLP, Matheson, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, Lazard Freres & Co. LLC, Alvarez & Marsal and Conyers Dill & Pearman.

Michael Bray of Passion VinesWines labeled as “made from organically grown grapes” consist of grapes that are harvested using sustainable agricultural practices. Simply put, these are grapes are grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides or chemicals in the vineyards.Wines labeled as “organic” consist of grapes that are harvested without the use of chemicals, stabilizers, etc. in the winery itself as well as in the vineyard. This includes the winery’s fermentation tanks, ageing barrels and even the bottles themselves.Sulfur dioxide is a natural element that is a by-product of fermentation and is also present in soil. All wines have some degree of naturally occurring sulfites. Wines that are organic or biodynamic do not have additional sulfites used as a preservative.Unfortunately, our labeling laws require just the words “contains sulfites” on the label and do not differentiate between the naturally occurring and the additional.The overwhelming majority of “organic” wines have no indication of such on the label. In some countries the certification process can be expensive, ridiculously strict or even incongruous to making quality wine. In turn, incredibly passionate producers that practice the most intense organic and sustainable methods do not get certified. Yet the wines they produce may be more pure, natural and tasty than some winemakers that promote their “organic” qualities.At Passion Vines, we are proud to promote wines that are produced organically. We have developed relationships with many of these organic producers and can attest to the purity of their practices.Another indication of purity comes from the back label of the wine, where the importer is noted. Passion Vines represents importers that deal exclusively with natural & traditional producers, which invariably means organic. Some of these importers are Fleet Street (the famous Shipped at 56 degrees label), Vinifera Imports, Vias Imports and Marc di Grazie (all Italian importers), Jorge Ordonez (Spain), Louis Dressner (France), Jenny & Francois (France), Polaner Imports (France, Italy, California) and others. Other individual producers that may not fall under these importers’ umbrellas are also organic. For instance, Alexander Valley Vineyards from Sonoma has a Certificate of Sustainability, Benziger is certified Biodynmaic and Alma Rose is organic. The list goes on! A Passion Vines team member will be happy to introduce you to a wine that is organic in almost any style, color, price range or region.Cheers,Michael Bray, Founder read more
The review was commissioned by the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson after he launched the Modernising Defence Programme (MDP) to strengthen the Armed Forces in the face of intensifying threats, alongside the Prime Minister and the Chancellor.The independent review of defence’s contribution to national economic and social value by Philip Dunne looks right across the Armed Forces and industry to provide an in-depth picture to inform proposals for reform into the MDP.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: Philip Dunne’s review shows how vital defence is, not only protecting us from global dangers and safeguarding our national prosperity, but also to our economy by creating thousands of specialist and highly-skilled jobs and creating billions in exports. He paints a clear picture of how defence and defence industry reaches every corner of the UK and is central to employment in so many cities and towns. He lays down some key challenges to consider as our Modernising Defence Programme continues to ensure defence is the best it can be in a post-Brexit Britain. Defence makes a huge contribution across all regions of the UK whether as a major employer, a large investor or as a hub for local communities. Defence is the third largest landowner in the country with 220,000 hectares often benefiting remote and rural communities.The report reveals that around 500,000 people support defence across the UK. It outlines that the UK’s defence industry is one of the world’s strongest with an annual turnover of £22 billion supporting 260,000 jobs, many of which are highly skilled and well-paid. Most importantly, he acknowledges that defence is a major contributor to the nation’s skills and one of the largest employer of apprentices with over 25,500 currently enrolled.Dunne also acknowledges that, in addition to the MOD budget of almost £37 billion, defence’s direct contribution to GDP features over £7 billion of exports generated each year on average. Just recently a shipbuilding contract worth up to £20 billion was signed between BAE Systems and the Australian government for British-designed Type 26 frigates – the biggest Naval defence contract for a decade.Defence’s relationship as a customer and industrial partner with many high growth sectors in the economy generates more activity, particularly in the aerospace, space, cyber, and increasingly the knowledge economy and creative sectors.Defence is also driving investment in British industry through the National Shipbuilding Strategy, which was launched last year to transform the UK maritime industry and boost the prosperity of regions, shipyards and maritime supply chains across the country. The MOD is also set to launch a Combat Air Strategy to ensure Britain maintains a world-leading combat air capability.The MOD will now consider the findings of Philip Dunne’s report as work continues on the MDP. The report also includes a number of recommendations for review, including: further research into the impact of significant procurements on national prosperity; building on the strong relationships with industry suppliers; and considering how the UK’s world-leading institutions could be given greater entrepreneurial freedoms.Philip Dunne said: I am pleased to have been able to undertake this review and am grateful for the help of all those in and outside the Department who have contributed. This is the first time for some years that an independent report has sought to look at the whole impact of Defence on the UK economy, its devolved nations and regions in England. Defence has made a number of important steps in meeting its prosperity objective. It makes a major contribution to our economic well-being, with 500,000 people working directly and indirectly in Defence and over 25,500 apprentices developing skills. In several local communities Defence is one of the leading providers of high skilled jobs. But there is more that can be done as Defence has to adapt to rapidly evolving technological threats, so too should it seize the opportunities to adapt and improve its own processes to help meet the challenges of the high-tech defence future. I look forward to seeing how the MOD responds to this report and have confirmed to the Defence Secretary that I am willing to revisit in some months’ time how the Department has considered and where it has decided to implement these ideas. read more
