Convention ‘declines to take a position’ on Anglican Covenant

first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Convention ‘declines to take a position’ on Anglican Covenant Bishops and deputies affirm Continuing Indaba, communion relationships Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET General Convention 2012 Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas addresses the House of Bishops July 10 on two resolutions concerning Anglican Communion relationships and the Anglican Covenant. Photo/Matthew Davies[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] The House of Bishops concurred with the deputies July 10 to affirm their commitment to building relationships across the Anglican Communion, especially through the Continuing Indaba program, and to decline to take a position on the Anglican Covenant.After considering eight resolutions, the General Convention’s committee on world mission recommended adoption of two resolutions on Anglican Communion relationships and the Anglican Covenant, a document that initially had been intended as a way to bind Anglicans globally across cultural and theological differences.Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, chair of the world mission committee, told ENS following the vote that the resolutions are “a genuine pastoral response because we are not of one mind, and to push a decision at this time would cause hurt and alienation in our church on both sides and instead we chose to stay in the conversation.”Resolution B005 portrays the decision not to take a position on the covenant as “a pastoral response to The Episcopal Church.”The resolution acknowledges that, following extensive study and prayerful consideration of the Anglican Covenant, there remains “a wide variety of opinions and ecclesiological positions in The Episcopal Church.”It also calls for the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies to appoint a task force “to continue to monitor the ongoing developments with respect to the Anglican Covenant and how this church might continue its participation.” That task force would report its findings to the next convention.In both houses, an amendment to remove the section that declines to adopt the covenant, as well as to set up a task force, was defeated.The Rev. Mark Harris, deputy from Delaware and a world mission committee member, told the deputies that he came to convention wanting to say no to the covenant. “[But] this is not about our wants but what we need … We need a place where we can continue to listen to the wide divides across the Anglican Communion,” he said. “Why must we provide an answer now…when we are in a massive effort to re-envision and restructure the church? We don’t need more division.”Deputy Jack Tull of Florida, a member of the world mission Committee, had submitted an earlier resolution (D006) that called on the church to decline to adopt the covenant “as I did not want to see us expend any more energy on this. But coming here has shown me and other committee members the proper approach to take. That insight is reflected in this resolution.”Council has been studying the covenant progress for the last six years, most recently through its D020 Task Force (called for in Resolution D020 from the 2009 meeting of convention). That task force recommended, and council agreed, in October 2011 to submit a resolution (A126) to this meeting of convention that would have convention state that the church is “unable to adopt the Anglican Covenant in its present form.”B005 expresses the convention’s gratitude to “those who so faithfully worked at producing and responding to the proposed Anglican Covenant.”Resolution B005 initially was submitted by Douglas. The original language encouraged the church to embrace the preamble and first three sections of the four-section Anglican Covenant. This, Douglas told ENS prior to convention, would ensure that the church does not remove itself from the ongoing covenant process.The document’s fourth section, which outlines a disciplinary method for resolving disputes in the communion, has been the covenant’s main sticking point.Resolution D008, also proposed by world mission, has been revised from the original legislation proposed by the Rev. Tobias Haller, a deputy from New York. Neither Haller’s nor the current version specifically mentions the covenant, but the original was modeled on legislation adopted by several Church of England dioceses that have opposed adopting the covenant.The resolution calls on the church to “deepen its involvement with communion ministries and networks using where applicable the Continuing Indaba process: conversations across differences to strengthen relationships in God’s mission” and encourage dioceses, congregations and individual Episcopalians to educate themselves about the Communion and “promote and support the Anglican Communion and its work.”Haller serves on the Continuing Indaba reference group alongside representatives from Africa and the United Kingdom. He said the program is “catching fire and inspiring people around the communion. It’s now being explored as a way for parishes within dioceses to spend time with one another and to learn from one another. Continuing Indaba will be the lifeblood and breath of the Anglican Communion.”Deputy Josephine Hicks from North Carolina, a member of convention’s world mission committee, endorsed the Continuing Indaba program, which is facilitating ways of enabling Anglicans to learn from one another and communicate across different contexts. “We heard on the committee a resounding support for maintaining relationships in the Anglican Communion,” she said.Hicks, who serves as the Episcopal Church’s lay member on the Anglican Consultative Council, the communion’s main policy-making body, said that it’s important for the Episcopal Church to continue to be a part of the various councils of the Anglican Communion because that is “where relationships are forged, where our voice can be heard, and where we have the chance to dispel inaccurate perceptions.”Some deputies said that the Episcopal Church does not need pieces of paper, such as the Anglican Covenant, to be in relationship.The resolution celebrates “the great blessing of the Anglican Communion in its diversity within community as autonomous churches in relationship bound together in our differences in service to God’s mission.”It also states that the Episcopal Church will “hold fast and reaffirm our historic commitment to and constituent membership in the Anglican Communion” as expressed in the preamble of the church’s constitution, and that it would “maintain and reinforce strong links across the communion” committing itself to continued participation in its councils.Douglas told the bishops that the resolution “gives gratitude for diversity of churches, celebrates relationships across differences, reaffirms our membership in the Anglican Communion, promises ongoing participation in the councils of the communion, and also lifts up and supports the good work that our church and other churches have been doing in the Continuing Indaba and commits us to educating our own so that we can deeper support the Anglican Communion.Communion-wide considerationThroughout the Anglican Communion, seven provinces have approved or subscribed to the Anglican Covenant. They are Ireland, Mexico, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, South East Asia, Southern Cone of America, and the West Indies.Two provinces – the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia – have voted against adopting the covenant. The Episcopal Church in the Philippines bishops also have rejected the covenant.In March, it became clear that the Church of England could not adopt the covenant in its current form when a majority of its dioceses voted the document down.The Anglican Church of Southern Africa has adopted the document pending ratification at its next synod meeting later this year.The Church in Wales last April gave the covenant “an amber light, rather than a green light.” The church’s governing body said it feared the recent rejection of the covenant by the Church of England jeopardized its future and clarifications about that were now needed before a decision could be made. It sent questions on the matter to the Anglican Consultative Council, which meets later this year.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. The Rev.

The 25 hectare estate is part of a larger program initiated by the government, which aims to connect regional ecological zones throughout the country. The current owner bought the site, once farmland, in 2006. It is a protected habitat for animals and plants and a major tourist draw in the area, open to the public. Permission to build a house on the land was given only on condition that it was returned to its pre-agricultural state. The planting of some 71,000 six-year-old trees hint at the future of the estate as ‘a villa in the woods’ and were planted already in 2006. A rectangular pond was digged, requiring the removal of 70,000 cubic metres of soil. Save this picture!©  Jeroen MuschContrastThe underground volume of the house consists the entrance, parking (for 6 cars and a tractor), storage, bathroom and a workspace which looks out over the pond. The living area is situated in the floating glass box above ground. It’s floor plan is completely open, except for some subtle glass room dividers. There are several separate volumes for the kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and a multifunctional room. The patio has glass doors on both sides, so that it’s both accessible through the living room and the bathroom. The entire floor is covered with white epoxy and the furniture consists of designer classics from Le Corbusier and Eileen Grey. The façade is completely made out of glass and offers a spectacular view over the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!©  Jeroen MuschSelf-sufficientOne of the main principles of Villa Kogelhof was to translate luxury into the happiness of independence. The goal for the villa was to be self-sufficient; to generate its own energy, to heat its own water and to recycle the garbage. To make sure Villa Kogelhof is energy neutral, the façade offers an important contribution. This so called climate-façade is composed of an outer layer of clear insulated glass from floor to ceiling and an inner layer of sun-reflecting fabric that can be rolled up and unrolled. When the fabric is lowered, an air cavity is formed in which the air from the villa is extracted of a central ventilation system. The house is heated by a central heating system in combination with an air pump. Warm water will in the near future be generated by using a range stove, in which wood will be fired from the trees out of the private forest of the estate. Electricity is generated from the PV-cells on the roof and also from the planned windmill.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding Transformed Into Giant Rubik’s CubeArchitecture NewsA Year Without OscarArchitecture News Share Manufacturers: GIRA, Si-X Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Photographs ArchDaily CopyAbout this officePaul de Ruiter ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabas3D ModellingNoord-BevelandThe NetherlandsPublished on December 06, 2013Cite: “Villa Kogelhof / Paul de Ruiter Architects” 06 Dec 2013.

Joint open letter to Mr Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission: Call for EU action to protect journalists

first_imgNews News News SlovakiaMaltaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionConflicts of interestJudicial harassmentEconomic pressureViolence June 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation June 8, 2021 Find out more Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says 6 March 2018 Dear President Juncker, We, the undersigned organisations, are deeply saddened and appalled by the recent killings of Slovak journalist Ján Kuciak and Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. These killings on European soil in retaliation for the investigative reporting by these journalists are simply unacceptable. We welcome the condemning of these killings by the European Union (EU) institutions. However, we demand that no further time is wasted and these words are followed by action. We urge high-level officials from the European Commission to retain regular communication with senior police authorities in Slovakia and Malta to ensure that police investigations are full, thorough and independent. Moreover, the European Commission must take the lead and hold state officials and public figures to account for creating an environment in which the critical function of journalism is respected. State officials and public figures should consistently speak out in support of the critical function of journalism and support journalists when they are attacked. A climate in which impunity prevails and in which journalists are only respected when they serve the interests of those in power, paves the way for violence. These murders signal the urgent need to support civil society in the EU Member States in their efforts to fight impunity, and to document and promote accountability for violations of press freedom. In today’s world where a journalist is killed every five days with almost full impunity as a result, we have to stop the European region from becoming an environment where journalists are no longer safe to do their work. We call on the European Commission to work, as a priority, with Member States to begin the process of establishing national protection mechanisms for journalists in Europe. When journalists are killed, they are silenced and the public is deprived of their stories. In the cases of Ján Kuciak and Daphne Caruana Galizia stories about corruption, organized crime and abuse of power. Stories the people have a right to know about. Safety of journalists is a precondition for good journalism that serves the societies and audiences. Our European democracies cannot thrive when journalists are silenced and cannot inform people about important developments and hold power holders to account. We urge the European Commission to call on the governments of its member states to implement without any delay their existing commitments to provide a safe, enabling environment for journalists, flowing from numerous adopted United Nations resolutions on the safety of journalists and the Council of Europe recommendation on the Protection of Journalism and the Safety of Journalists and other media actors. We urge the European Commission to take the lead in stepping up their efforts to protect journalists within Europe. The undersigned organisations stand ready to support in such efforts. Your response to the killings of Ján Kuciak and Daphne Caruana Galizia will set a precedent for what is permissible in the European Union. A safe future for journalists in europe is in your hands.Yours sincerely, Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img RSF_en RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia March 14, 2018 Joint open letter to Mr Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission: Call for EU action to protect journalists Help by sharing this information SlovakiaMaltaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionConflicts of interestJudicial harassmentEconomic pressureViolence News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 4, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

He is currently doing his PhD in National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A past winner of a biomedical research scholarship from the Irish Cancer Society, the Limerick man’s team has focused on a type of immune cell called Natural Killer cells that normally destroy cancer cells, but are unable to detect those of Multiple Myeloma.They are trying to find ways of boosting these Natural Killer cells so that they can successfully detect and destroy Multiple Myeloma cells which would revolutionise treatment for the disease.Commenting on his award, John Daly said: “I’m absolutely delighted, a lot of hard work has gone into this so far, not just from me but everyone in my group, and particularly my supervisor and co-supervisor: Prof Michael O’Dwyer and Dr Mattias Carlsten. Things like this are really encouraging and motivating for the next couple of years as we try to move our research on.”He added that while there is plenty more work to do, he would eventually like to see his research trialled on patients in a clinical setting.

Double-transplant patient Mr McLaughlin is a regular user of the bus along with mother.The HSE has said that the five-day-a-week Marley service was cancelled after 35 years because there had been an increase in the number of public service buses on the Donegal to Dublin route, withshorter journey times.However, patients argue that because the public services don’t drop them off and pick them up at hospital front-doors, they would incur up to €100 extra daily in taxi and accomodation costs.center_img Pinterest PSNI and Gardai urged to investigate Adams’ claims he sheltered on-the-run suspect in Donegal Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook Facebook HSE warns of ‘widespread cancellations’ of appointments next week Dail to vote later on extending emergency Covid powers Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derrylast_img read more

The issue arose since the respondents raised objection regarding maintainability of petition under Article 227 of the Constitution of India in view of the alternative and efficacious remedy available to the petitioners as provided under Section 13(1) of the Commercial Courts Act.The contention raised by the petitioners was that the heading of Section 13 of the Commercial Courts Act states “Appeals from decrees of Commercial Courts and Commercial Divisions” and therefore, an appeal under Section 13(1) of the Act would lie only from a decree or a final judgment passed by a Commercial Court and no appeal will lie from an order, especially an interlocutory or interim order, passed by a Commercial Court. Referring to the provisions of the Act, Justice R. Narayana Pisharadi observed:”There is no merit in the above contention. If the above contention of the learned counsel is accepted, the word “order” in Section 13(1) of the Commercial Courts Act would be a surplasage and that word would become otiose or redundant. The title to the provision need not invariably indicate the contents of the provision. If the provision is otherwise clear and unambiguous, the title pales into irrelevance. On the contrary, if the contents of the provision are otherwise ambiguous, an aid can be sought from the title so as to define the provision. In the event of a conflict between the plain expressions in the provision and the indicated title, the title cannot control the contents of the provision. Title is only a broad and general indication of the nature of the subject dealt under the provision.The matter can be considered from another angle. In the instant case, the impugned order is an order of injunction. It is appealable under Order XLIII of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908. It is an order passed under Section 9 of the Arbitration Act. It is also appealable under Section 37 of the Arbitration Act. Section 37(1)(b) of the Arbitration Act states that an appeal shall lie from an order granting or refusing to grant any measure under Section 9 of the said Act. Right of appeal is the creature of a statute. It is well settled that right of appeal is a substantive right. Nothing contained in Section 13(1) or Section 13(2) of the Commercial Courts Act curtails this right of appeal.”Holding thus, the court noted that the petitioners have not shown any reason for not availing the remedy of appeal against the order impugned in this original petition. In such circumstances, this Court is not inclined to interfere with the impugned order by invoking the power under Article 227 of the Constitution of India, the judge said. While dismissing the petition, the court further added:”When there is a remedy of appeal before a civil court available to an aggrieved person and such remedy is not availed of by him, it would deter the High Court, not merely as a measure of self imposed restriction, but as a matter of discipline and prudence, from exercising its power of superintendence under Article 227 of the Constitution”CASE: PRANATHMAKA AYURVEDICS PVT LTD  vs. COCOSATH HEALTH PRODUCTS [OP(C).No.1467 OF 2020]CORAM: Justice R.
