Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The SaintsRoko-Houdini magicTwo rounds played and only three teams in the Aviva Premiership still have a 100% record. Of those, Wasps and Newcastle won on the road without being at their best, while Bath produced a grandstand finish to defeat European champions Saracens, 31-21.Todd Blackadder’s side was trailing 21-17 and down to 14 men because of injuries when they won a scrum 40 metres out. Rokoduguni took the ball at first receiver, wrong-footed Ben Spencer, sidestepped the sweeper and touched down for a brilliant try that very few players are capable of.A few minutes later, a length-of-field interception score – following a similar effort at Leicester – secured victory as Sarries threatened to snatch the spoils.Ugo Monye dubbed the Bath winger “Roko-Houdini” and “a complete phenomenon” and at such times it seems ludicrous that the Fijian-born soldier has won just two England caps. In truth, his defensive game remains fallible and it’s probably right that others are deemed ahead of the 30-year-old at national level. Probably.In the limelight: Ugo Monye, the ex-Quins and England wing now doing punditry for BT Sport (Getty)Ugo’s arrow Talking of Monye, the ex-England wing was responsible for the funniest moment of the weekend – better even that watching Michael Cheika’s reactions in the Wallaby coaching box – during the Worcester-Wasps match.A Sam Olver clearance arrowed straight into the BT Sport commentary position high above the Sixways pitch and was caught by Monye. After a few seconds, he lobbed the ball down to the pitch and we saw him hurriedly apologise to someone below.Shortly after that, a replay showed why he had contritely held his hand up… Monye had managed to hit Jack Singleton square on the back of the head just as he was about to throw in at a lineout. The Worcester hooker saw the funny side. Eventually. Spring in his step: Elliott Stooke runs out ahead of Bath’s win over Saracens at the Rec (Getty Images) Worcester’s verbals also grated, with excessive questioning of Foley’s decisions. The facility to march a team back ten metres for dissent is one of rugby’s smartest rules and I’d like to see referees use it more often to deter perpetual backchat.Losing patience: RFU referee Tom Foley had to give Wasps the hurry-up at Sixways (Getty) Blue protestGood to see so many home fans make their point at the drawn Australia-South Africa match in Perth.Western Force’s axing from Super Rugby having been confirmed by the High Court, thousands of the franchise’s fans wore blue instead of Wallaby colours for the Test at NIB Stadium. It’s reckoned only about 15% of the crowd donned green and gold, and the Sea of Blue made a powerful protest at the ARU’s handling of the Super Rugby issue.Show of Force: Fans wore Western Force colours at Australia’s Test against the Springboks in PerthLeinster’s pearlBest try of the weekend? Charlie Walker’s for Harlequins was right up there, along with Rokoduguni’s first for Bath and a beaut from the training ground scored by Exeter’s Henry Slade.But pipping them all was replacement scrum-half Nick McCarthy’s late try against Cardiff Blues that brought Leinster a bonus point. It featured great hands by Devin Toner and Isa Nacewa before McCarthy latched on to Jack Conan’s inside offload.Impressive: Leinster celebrate one of their four tries against Cardiff Blues on Friday night (Inpho)Fifita’s impactWrite Jerome Kaino off at your peril but the 81-cap flanker, omitted from recent All Blacks teams after reports of an extramarital affair, has his work cut out.Liam Squire was excellent in the back-to-back wins against Australia and on Saturday it was the turn of Vaea Fifita to produce a star turn at blindside flanker.center_img Fifita has a winger’s pace but also a high knee action that makes tackling him devilishly difficult. Lured to the Hurricanes by Murray Mexted after he spotted him playing for a Tongan schools side, the now 25-year-old Fifita conjured an eye-popping burst to mark his first Test start with the try that brought New Zealand level against Argentina.A similar left-flank gallop set up a Damian McKenzie try that was chalked off for a forward pass.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREIn all, Fifita ran 113 metres and beat ten defenders in New Plymouth and his performance did as much as anyone to preserve the All Blacks’ unbeaten record against the Pumas after they had trailed 22-15 with half an hour to play.“He’s a bit of a freak,” said Nehe Milner-Skudder of his team-mate – but will Fifita be given an extended stay in the No 6 jersey?What a score: Vaea Fifita tears past the defence to end Pumas’ hopes of a shock victory in TaranakiThe SinnersLineout debaclesArgentina’s opening try by Nicolás Sanchez followed New Zealand’s failure to win a defensive lineout in the final play of the first half, and was part of a catalogue of lineout woes at the weekend.It started on Friday night when Sale Sharks lost eight of their own throws in the first half against the Falcons, leading to hooker Cameron Neild being subbed off at the break.Newcastle’s Calum Green, named as ‘One to Watch’ in Rugby World’s start-of-season guide, was Man of the Match after a lineout performance of intelligence and athleticism.Sale’s 62% lineout figure for this season is the worst in the Premiership, but they aren’t alone in struggling. Gloucester, Leicester and Worcester all have similar issues, and Wasps conceded a try to Biyi Alo after Ashley Johnson’s throw failed to find the target.Ball secured: Graham Kitchener wins possession but the Tigers struggled in the lineout (Getty)Brits hard done byIt’s rare to see Schalk Brits without a smile but he was left furious by a decision that cost Saracens three points at the Rec.The hooker found himself on the wrong side of the breakdown, a short distance away but crouched down so as not to impede the pass. Kahn Fotuali’i milked the situation anyway, deliberately passing low into Brits – an angle of pass that he would never have made normally and which would not have reached a team-mate.No matter, according to referee Wayne Barnes, who awarded a penalty that Rhys Priestland slotted for a 14-0 lead. “That’s the law,” Barnes said, but even Bath fans could see this was plain wrong.Happy lad: the Schalk Brits smile we’re used to (Getty)A trying dayThere were two unappealing elements in the Wasps-Worcester game. One, the slowness with which Wasps went about their business when the ball was dead, which led to referee Tom Foley asking them to speed up.It’s something Wasps also did in last season’s Premiership final but on that occasion was more understandable because it was a hot day and they were under the cosh. Roko-Houdini up to his tricks at Bath, Ugo Monye’s stray dart, a Sea of Blue in Perth, the All Blacks unearth a No 6 to fear, lineout woes and why Schalk Brits lost his cool TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

Gay Clark Jennings described an Episcopal Relief & Development trip she took to Ghana to learn about poverty and disease prevention programs there. She said the experience was “transformative.”“We met women who can now educate their children because they opened market stalls with micro-loans. We met farmers learning new cultivation practices developed for a changing climate. We met a tribal chief who told us about the importance of empowering women,” Jennings said.Formerly known as the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, Episcopal Relief & Development started in 1940 as a granting agency assisting World War II refugees.  Since then, Radtke said at the party, the Episcopal Church has donated more than $366 million through Episcopal Relief & Development, $243 million of that since 2002. The organization now reaches three million people annually in 40 countries, according to its website.Radtke, in an interview, described three areas of cutting-edge work for the organization as it moves forward.One is to integrate its signature NetsforLife® malaria-prevention program into its broader healthcare work. Some 80,000 community health workers have been trained through NetsforLife®. The next step, Radtke said, is to put other tools in their kit.“If they’re going house to house monitoring malaria nets, they should also be delivering information about good nutrition, prenatal care, information about vaccinations – a whole suite of things that can focus on saving the lives of children under 5, because all the public health science will tell you that if you can get a child to the age of 5, then their long-term prospects of living to adulthood are much greater,” he said.The organization also is shifting its economic empowerment philosophy away from micro-credit and toward cooperative savings.“We’ve thought faithfully and prayerfully about this and really think that a more sustainable and a healthier model is a savings model, encouraging self-help groups to save. Each person in the group puts in a certain amount every month and then they lend the money out to each other. They’re increasing their net worth as opposed to taking on debt.“It’s part of a broader shift that’s going on in the relief and development field, but we’re certainly at the forefront of that shift,” Radtke said.A third new area for Episcopal Relief & Development, he said, is a focus on alleviating gender-based violence.“A young woman or person who gets trafficked will almost certainly have been a victim of gender-based violence at home or in their community,” Radtke said.A recent grant from the U.N. Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women will help Episcopal Relief & Development work with a church partner to develop a curriculum.  “We hope the results of that pilot will be successful and we’ll be able to scale that up,” he said.Radtke, who joined Episcopal Relief & Development 10 years ago – right after the Indian Ocean tsunami and right before Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. Gulf Coast – said that an anniversary year is a good time to pause and take stock.“As good as Episcopal Relief & Development is, we have to be very strategic about where we focus our work. We try to do the greatest good for the greatest number at the least possible cost.  That’s really at the center of our philosophy,” he said.— Tracy J. Sukraw is part of the Episcopal News Service team covering convention. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori spoke about how relationships have played a critical role in the organization’s expansion.“When this ministry began, it was a personal ministry of the presiding bishop.  It has expanded to the point that that’s no longer possible, and what a gift to the world that has become,” she said.“The relationships that are built among primates and presiding bishops are one way in which this ministry continues to expand across the world, but far, far more important in this era is the incredible work that is led by the staff of Episcopal Relief & Development, building relationships with provinces of the Anglican Communion that go far beyond the end of the road,” Jefferts Schori said.

Radtke said he has every expectation that the goal will be exceeded by year’s end.“It’s a thrill to be here in Salt Lake City and to have the opportunity, frankly, to say thank you to the people of The Episcopal Church for 75 years of incredibly generous support. It’s been a wonderful sign of faith and commitment to God’s mission in the world that we’ve thrived as we have for 75 years,” Radtke said.To celebrate, Episcopal Relief & Development hosted a June 27 anniversary party for a spirited crowd of several hundred friends and supporters attending General Convention, complete with live music and dancing.The crowd broke into cheers and applause when Radtke introduced Episcopal Relief & Development’s board chair, Bishop Michael B. Curry, who, in a historic single-ballot election earlier that day, had been chosen as The Episcopal Church’s next presiding bishop.“Episcopal Relief & Development, you don’t look a day over 25,” Curry said. “This really is a joyous celebration of remarkable and faithful and selfless service of helping this world end what is a nightmare for so many and realize the dream that God has intended from the beginning. And that is what healing a hurting world, that’s what Episcopal Relief & Development is about.”The General Convention’s presiding officers also spoke in tribute.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Belleville, IL Submit a Press Release [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Alan Yarborough of the Diocese of Western North Carolina has been named the 2016-2017 intern for the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations and Virginia Theological Seminary Center for Anglican Communion Studies.The first of its kind, this new internship reflects an innovative collaboration between the Episcopal Church and the Center for Anglican Communion Studies at Virginia Theological Seminary. Yarborough will be based in Washington, D.C., and will reside at Virginia Theological Seminary.  His focus and work will be with the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations, also located in Washington, and the Center for Anglican Communion Studies at Virginia Theological Seminary in nearby Alexandria, Virginia.Previously Yarborough was a Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) volunteer in the Diocese of Haiti. YASC is a ministry for Episcopal young adults, ages 21 – 30, who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the Anglican Communion.In his new role at the Office of Government Relations, Yarborough will mainly be responsible for lifting up the work of the Episcopal Public Policy Network by engaging Episcopalians in advocacy. At the Center for Anglican Communion Studies, he will staff projects related to international and inter-cultural partnership reconciliation.“I’m grateful to be continuing with the Episcopal Church after serving as a missionary in Haiti for the past three years,” Yarborough said. “I am excited about the diverse roles the Virginia Theological Seminary and the Office of Government Relations will involve that will allow me to apply what I have learned while living abroad. I’m also simply looking forward to assisting these amazing ministries in the work that they do.”“Alan’s experience and dedication to work in our Church and throughout the Anglican Communion make him a natural for this internship,” the Rev. Canon Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church, commented.Acting Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary, the Rev. Melody Knowles, said, “The Center for Anglican Communion Studies is an integral part of the mission of VTS. It helps us grow deep relationships across differences as we form leaders of the church. This internship is a great opportunity to further connect those relationships and opportunities with the wider church.”The Rev. Robert S. Heaney, director of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies, commented, “VTS exists to form leaders for the Episcopal Church, Anglican Communion and wider Church. The team in the Center for Anglican Communion Studies is excited to welcome Alan as someone who embodies the relationships that define the Communion.”The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations is responsible for bringing the policies of The Episcopal Church to Congress and the administration through the ministry of public policy advocacy. The actions, programs, and ministry of the Office of Government Relations are based entirely on policies approved by the Church meeting in General Convention or by the Executive Council.Virginia Theological Seminary’s Center for Anglican Communion Studies exists to “promote and practice better community for the Anglican Communion.” Within the larger vision of VTS, the center has three imperatives that drive its program: reflect, resource, and reconcile. Vision and practices of reconciliation nourish the work the center does in its inter-cultural, inter-theological, and inter-religious programming.

An unpretentious entrance, then a strangely self-contained, dimly lit, winding corridor that leads down a flight of steps as if we were descending into a cave. But then we open a door —and are left speechless. The square room that we now enter is spacious and light. Four large, rectangular windows, all of the same size, open onto views of four different “pictures” and transform the living room of the house into a kind of pavilion, open to all sides —an impression that is made all the stronger when, in fine weather, the windows are sunk into the ground and the four winds waft through the room.

One corner of the square is occupied by an opaque volume, and the rectangular flight of steps is wrapped around another. Thus the walls do not make a fragile impression like surfaces folded into right angles; rather, the room seems to be part of an organism that constitutes the whole. It is this dimension that gives the building ist strength, its almost excessive impact, and it is from this that everything else ensues. The building is not put together, it is a spatial shell. Save this picture!Each room, no matter how small, is complete in itself. All the reinforced concrete interior walls are of equal thickness. Furthermore, constructed of the same light-coloured, exposed concrete that gives the building its monochrome unity. The house definitely does not belong to the world of vertebrates, but to the realm of the crustaceans. Save this picture!The volume and compactness of the building is impressive, as are the atmospheric contrast and lighting effects and the different characters of the main rooms.

First Congregational Church of Ithaca becomes a ‘Sanctuary Church’

More by Kelsey O’Connor Kelsey O’Connor She said it’s often hard for people to connect that when they buy milk in the grocery store, they are purchasing a product that is the result of physically demanding farm work that relies heavily on immigrant workers. She said the church declaring itself a “sanctuary church” has political and real significance.Related: Overtime at issue in proposed farmworker rights billWeislogel said they are declaring themselves a sanctuary church in solidarity with many other Ithaca faith communities that are part of the Ithaca Sanctuary Alliance, a collection of local congregations, community organizations, and individuals fleeing violence or in danger of deportation. Other Alliance members include St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church in Ithaca, Congregation Tikkun v’Or Ithaca Reform Temple, First Unitarian Society of Ithaca, Living Hope Fellowship, St. Catherine of Siena Parish, Forest Home Methodist Church, Ithaca Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and First Congregational Church of Ithaca (United Church of Christ).Formed in March 2018, goals for members of the Ithaca Sanctuary Alliance include educating themselves and the community about immigration-related issues and advocating for justice and comprehensive humane immigration reform, and accompany and support immigrants and their families, at their request, when facing immigration-related hearings or meetings or as guests in sanctuary.At the news conference Thursday, Rev. Kaden shared a story of a Pakistani couple, Malik Naveed bin Rehman and Zahida Altaf, who sought sanctuary at the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme in Connecticut. They have a 5-year-old daughter who is a U.S. citizen and they had been in the country for 18 years with temporary visas, but they stayed past their visas’ expiration dates. They tried for years to pursue legal status, but according to a report from local radio station WNPR, they were derailed from a path to citizenship and lost nearly $6,000 due to an immigration lawyer mishandling their paperwork and faced deportation. The church offered them sanctuary and the couple stayed there for months until ICE announced it would not oppose their stay request while a judge considers their appeal.“Today, First Congregational Church of Ithaca declares itself publicly to be a sanctuary church in part because we are inspired by stories of possibilities such as this one. We have no illusions that by making this public declaration, we will fix a broken immigration system, but we might just add a little bit of good cheer, make a little bit of difference in the lives of people like Malik and Zahida, fellow human beings and children of God,” Rev. Kaden said.With this declaration, Rev. Kaden said the First Congregational Church of Ithaca is currently the first and only public sanctuary in Tompkins County.Featured image courtesy of First Congregational Church of Ithaca UCC Facebook page.  ITHACA, N.Y. — The First Congregational Church of Ithaca has declared that it is now a sanctuary church and has pledged to “provide shelter as needed for any undocumented immigrant who is seeking sanctuary while the legal challenge to deportation is in process.”Church leaders held a press conference Thursday to explain why they chose to make their church a local sanctuary.“Becoming a sanctuary church is an extension of one of our core principles in the United Church of Christ: ‘no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here’. Engaging in the Sanctuary process is a statement of extravagant welcome for at-risk members of our community, modeled on the principle of God’s unconditional grace offered to all,” Rev. Dr. David Kaden, senior minister of the First Congregational Church, said.Sanctuary cities and municipalities have been a hotly debated topic, locally and nationally. The City of Ithaca and Tompkins County have both passed sanctuary resolutions. Ithaca is listed on a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement document about jurisdictions that have enacted policies limiting cooperation with ICE, with the criteria, “Will only honor ‘warrantless detainer requests from the federal government under limited, specified circumstances’ such as violent or serious crimes or terrrorist activities.” Ithaca is one of more than 100 declared sanctuary jurisdictions across the country, and such jurisdictions have drawn scorn from the Trump administration. Recently, President Trump reiterated he was “giving strong considerations” to releasing migrants to sanctuary cities.Declaring themselves a sanctuary church, said Andy Weislogel, FCCI Church Council president, is “designed to further a climate of welcome, compassion, and justice amid the omnipresent reminders of bias toward immigrants in today’s news cycle.”While there is a lot of attention at the national level about immigration, Mary Jo Dudley, who is the director of the Cornell Farmworkers Program, grounded the issue locally, addressing the question, “What does it mean to us here?”“New York depends heavily on agriculture,” Dudley said. “Our farmworkers in the area throughout the state are primarily undocumented immigrant workers from Mexico and Guatemala, and that influences their reality every day just to leave the house. To go to their child’s parent-teacher conference, to go to the grocery store, puts them at risk.” Tagged: first congregational church of ithaca, ithaca, sanctuary last_img read more

Alabama National Guard to deploy to rural areas to administer COVID-19 vaccine

first_imgBill Oxford/iStockBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(MONTGOMERY, Ala.) — The Alabama National Guard will be deployed to rural areas in the state to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Kay Ivey announced.On March 23, two National Guard teams will rotate across 24 counties with the aim of administering at least 8,000 shots a week at mobile locations, Ivey said in a press release Tuesday. The guardsmen will “play a critical role in reaching folks in rural areas of Alabama,” she said.More than 1.1 million doses of the vaccine have been administered in the state, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health, but getting the vaccine to residents in rural areas across the country has proved challenging.Alabama was among several states that saw record numbers of new cases and hospitalizations at the beginning of the year, which led the state to extend its mask mandate through March 5.The mask mandate was extended again through April 9, but Ivey stated last week that the requirement will end for good. The number of new positive cases in Alabama has been declining for more than 14 days, according to the state health department.Ivey reminded Alabamians to be patient as the state continues working with the federal government to get more supplies.“Folks, we can have hope, because, finally, we can see the end of COVID-19,” she said.On Wednesday, Ivey reopened the state capitol and governor’s mansion.“As more Alabamians voluntarily get vaccinated and our COVID-19 numbers continue in an encouraging direction, it is only proper that our state capitol and governor’s mansion are once again open to the public,” Ivey said in a statement. “I appreciate the people of Alabama being patient and abiding by the COVID-19 protocols, however, I’m excited to announce that we can safely welcome folks back for a visit.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
