TEC has been using lawsuits with the diocese and 815 separately against the breakaways, so a settlement with the diocese wouldn’t stop the lawsuits by 815, unless 815 agreed to it. An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service] An offer by South Carolina Episcopalians to settle a church-property lawsuit in eastern South Carolina was rejected by a breakaway group on June 15, the same day the offer was made public.The Episcopal Church in South Carolina offered to let 35 parishes keep their church properties, whether or not they choose to remain part of The Episcopal Church.In exchange, the proposal required the breakaway group to return the diocesan property, assets and identity of “The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina” to the diocese that is still affiliated with The Episcopal Church.Hours after the offer was made public, the breakaway group led by Mark Lawrence, who was bishop in 2012 when he announced the diocese was leaving The Episcopal Church, announced that the parishes of the group unanimously rejected the offer.“This is not a legitimate offer of good faith negotiation and never was intended to be,” the Rev. Canon Jim Lewis, Lawrence’s assistant, said in the press release, a longer version of which was e-mailed to Episcopal News Service. He called the offer an effort to disrupt the on-going legal process rather an effort to settle it.Episcopal Church in South Carolina Bishop Charles G. vonRosenberg did not comment on the rejection.A spokesperson for his office said the offer remains on the table despite the breakaway group’s claim in its release that it came with a June 15 deadline. The breakaway group faced a brief-filing deadline in the lawsuit on June 15 in the state Supreme Court and the spokesperson said the Episcopal Church in South Carolina had simply said that it reserved the right to withdraw the offer after that day.In announcing the offer earlier in the day, vonRosenberg had said it stemmed from the hope for reconciliation that Episcopalians in South Carolina have held from the beginning of the dispute. “We see this offer as the strongest possible way we can demonstrate that,” he said.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori consented to the offer and it was presented to attorneys June 2, according to the Episcopal Church in South Carolina’s announcement.Discussions about releasing the parish properties have been going on since early 2013, a few months after the split occurred, the release said.“In a situation like this, where there has been so much grief and misunderstanding caused by the actions of a few, we pray that a gracious response to those who are now separated from us will hasten the day when we can be together as one unified diocese again,” vonRosenberg said.If the offer had been accepted, it would have ended the legal dispute that began in January 2013 when the breakaway group sued The Episcopal Church, and later its local diocese, seeking to control both diocesan and parish property and the identity of the diocese, according to the Episcopal Church of South Carolina release. It also would resolve a federal lawsuit currently before the U.S. District Court in Charleston.The Episcopal Church in South Carolina reorganized the diocese in early 2013 and operates with a part-time staff and a sharply reduced budget funded primarily by contributions from the 30 remaining Episcopal congregations. Meanwhile, the diocesan assets have been in the control of the breakaway group led by Lawrence.The congregations led by Lawrence operate separately without any formal affiliation with a larger religious body. The Episcopal Church in South Carolina remains part of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.In February, a state court judge awarded the properties and identity of the diocese to the breakaway group. Episcopalians have appealed to the South Carolina Supreme Court; oral arguments are set for September 23.The Episcopal Church in South Carolina said that diocesan leaders worked closely with Episcopalians who had been members of breakaway parishes and were left without church buildings in which to worship when the split occurred. “Most have moved ahead and created new Episcopal congregations, and gave their blessing for the settlement offer to be made,” the June 15 release said.“Buildings are important, but what is most important is the people who are in them,”  vonRosenberg said. “It is the people that we long to welcome back into The Episcopal Church once again.”Churches included in the settlement proposal(All these parishes are plaintiffs in the lawsuit against The Episcopal Church and The Episcopal Church in South Carolina)All Saints, FlorenceChrist Church, Mount PleasantChrist the King, WaccamawChrist-St. Paul’s, Yonges IslandChurch of the Cross, BlufftonEpiphany, EutawvilleGood Shepherd, CharlestonHoly Comforter, SumterHoly Cross, StateburgHoly Trinity, CharlestonOld St. Andrew’s, CharlestonChurch of Our Saviour, John’s IslandPrince George Winyah, GeorgetownRedeemer, OrangeburgResurrection, SurfsideSt. Bartholomew’s, HartsvilleSt. David’s, CherawSt. Helena’s, BeaufortSt. James, James IslandSt. John’s, FlorenceSt. John’s, John’s IslandSt. Jude’s, WalterboroSt. Luke’s, Hilton HeadSt. Luke and St. Paul, CharlestonSt. Matthew’s, DarlingtonSt. Matthew’s, Fort MotteSt. Matthias, SummertonSt. Michael’s, CharlestonSt. Paul’s, BennettsvilleSt. Paul’s, ConwaySt. Paul’s, SummervilleSt. Philip’s, CharlestonTrinity, Edisto IslandTrinity, PinopolisTrinity, Myrtle Beach Rector Washington, DC Chris Harwood says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs June 17, 2015 at 8:49 pm See what being nice to one of Bob Duncan’s acolytes got the church.

A message from Lynne Stewart to all of us

first_imgLynne Stewart, June 2013The following letter was issued on Aug. 1 by political prisoner Lynne Stewart, who is suffering from breast cancer and is engaged in a struggle to gain compassionate release. Supporters in New York are encouraged to attend a rally on Thursday, Aug. 8, the day of Stewart’s next court hearing, at 1 p.m. outside the New York City Federal Courthouse, 500 Pearl St. in Manhattan (at the Worth Street entrance). The hearing starts at 2:30 p.m. but it takes a long time to clear security, so please arrive early. Bring photo identification.To All:By now we will have filed papers which take us back into federal court in New York City to request that Judge [John G.] Koeltl overturn the barbaric decision by the Bureau of Prisons and allow me to leave this empty loveless prison and go home to people and places familiar and beloved. I certainly am sick enough — even my oncologist revised her prognosis down to 18 months now.However, my spirit remains undaunted and when I compare myself to others far worse off than I am — the Guantánamo and Pelican Bay prisoners; Marie Mason; Aafia Siddiqui; Hugo “Yogi” Pinell; those under the death penalty, like Kevin Cooper; the remaining Angola 2; Ruchel Magee; and my fellow New Yorkers, Jalil [Muntaqim], Sekou [Odinga], Herman [Bell], Seth [Robert Seth Hayes], David [Gilbert], Abdul [Majid] — let me stop before I choke up here — I know we MUST win my fight and the struggle for all other political prisoners to be freed. And then we must struggle for all to be free in this country.How much can we, the people, take? Their austerity is barbaric cruelty, with food stamps gone and public housing unavailable permanently. How long can the 1% continue to rule and the corporations call the shots? There is so much wrong, but we are not allowed to despair since we have been given sight in this land of the blind and hopeless and heartless.So, that said, let’s once again get out there as often as needs be — for all the causes, for all the humanity. For the future. Forward, ever forward!!— LynneFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

At Newark, N.J., protest: Police brutality, racism, inequality targeted

first_imgNewark, N.J. — Several thousand people braved a hot sun and no shade in over 90-degree heat to rally and march in Newark, N.J., on July 25. They were protesting police brutality, racial injustice and economic inequality.The majority African-American crowd, which also included Latinos/as, Asians and whites, youth and seniors, were supporting a demonstration initiated by the Newark-based People’s Organization for Progress, chaired by Larry Hamm. Delegations traveled from as far away as Boston, Philadelphia, Richmond and New York City, as well as other parts of New Jersey.Newark is the most populated city in New Jersey with the second-highest poverty rate: 30.2 percent, based on a family of four making only $22,000 or less, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.A main theme of the march and rally was Black Lives Matter, which focused on Black women and men killed by racist terror — such as Sandra Bland and Kindra Chapman, who were recently found dead in jail cells — and others who lost their lives at the hands of police in the Newark area and around the country. Family members, especially mothers of those killed by police, spoke with great emotion at the rally.A public statement on the “Million People’s March” Facebook page from Hamm explains what motivated the march:“Police brutality is an ongoing, growing and deadly problem in the United States of America.“It includes the unwarranted and unjustified killing of unarmed people, the use of excessive force, the violation of peoples’ constitutional rights, racist and discriminatory practices, criminal activity, corruption and misconduct, increased militarization of police forces, and the failure of the criminal justice system to hold police accountable.“Police brutality is not an isolated problem. It is a historical problem with roots that are deep in the social fabric of this country. It must be seen within the broader context of racial and economic injustice and inequality.“While the victims of police brutality come from all racial groups in society, the vast majority come from African American, Latino, Native American and other communities of color. They are overwhelmingly poor and working class. Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Abdul Kamal, Kashad Ashford and Rekia Boyd are among the recent victims.“Police brutality has been and continues to be the cause of social unrest in the country. Throughout contemporary U.S. history incidents of police brutality have sparked explosive episodes of civil rebellion and unrest, with the most recent being that of Ferguson, Missouri.“The failure of the criminal justice system to hold police officers accountable is causing a political crisis as more people discover that police brutality goes unpunished. Police kill unarmed civilians and are not even charged.“One grand jury after another fails to indict police officers. The cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner being the most recent examples. This is perpetuating a growing belief that the criminal justice system is racist and illegitimate.“For these reasons POP is calling a Million People’s March Against Police Brutality, Racial Injustice, and Economic Inequality. We will march to demand an end to police brutality and justice for all of its victims, police reform, and an end to the problems of racial injustice and economic inequality which lead to police brutality.”Photo: People’s Organization for Progress march for racial and economic justice.Credit: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

With Eye on Greece Crude Backs Down

first_img With Eye on Greece Crude Backs Down Oil futures settled back under $60 a barrel Thursday as traders weighed energy-demand implications tied to Greece’s debt woes and looked ahead to next week’s deadline for a deal on Iran’s nuclear program.On the New York Mercantile Exchange, July crude declined by 57 cents, or 1%, to settle at $59.70 a barrel following a loss of 1.2% a day earlier. Brent crude for August delivery fell 29 cents, or 0.5%, to $63.20 a barrel on London’s ICE Futures exchange.“For crude oil, the main impact from Greece would be on what that means for [the] U.S. dollar and for European demand,” said Colin Cieszynski, chief market strategist at CMC Markets.Greece and its international lenders met for another an intensive round of meetings Thursday, as they tried to reach a reform deal before a bailout deadline on Turesday, June 30.The oil market is also looking at another deadline that same day on Iran’s nuclear program. Officials have said talks may go beyond the end of June but a deal to curb the country’s nuclear program is still in the cards.If a deal between Iran and the West is reached, it could ease the international sanctions against Tehran and release more Iranian crude on the already oversupplied global market.Still, UBS on Thursday raised its 2015 Brent forecast to $61.50 from $56.25 and the 2016 Brent outlook to $70 from $67.50, citing “clear signs of slowing non-OPEC investment, which will impact supply-side growth.”The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Wednesday that domestic oil inventories fell by a larger-than-expected 4.9 million barrels last week, but stockpiles of gasoline and distillates increased.“It’s interesting how oil rallied in the winter when U.S. inventories were rising and is flat to slightly lower now that U.S. [crude] stockpiles are coming back down again,” said Cieszynski. “This suggests that U.S. supplies peaking and coming back down was already priced in by $60 WTI.”On Nymex, July gasoline fell 1.9 cents, or 0.9%, to $2.037 a gallon and July heating oil ended at $1.862 a gallon, down 1.4 cents, or 0.7%.July natural gas settled up 9.1 cents, or 3.3%, at $2.85 per million British thermal units. The EIA said natural-gas supplies rose by 75 billion cubic feet for the week ended June 19. Analysts polled by Platts forecast a climb of 76 to 80 billion cubic feet.Source: Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 SHARE Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribe Home Energy With Eye on Greece Crude Backs Down Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Name Sym Last Change By Andy Eubank – Jun 26, 2015 Facebook Twitter SHARE How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 All quotes are delayed snapshots Facebook Twitter Minor Changes in June WASDE Report Previous articleWhole Foods Caught OverchargingNext articleStoring Wet Hay Could Cause Barn Fire Andy Eubank RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 last_img read more
