General Seminary faculty returning to work, devoted to reconciliation

first_img 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 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK [Episcopal News Service] In a letter to Bishop Mark Sisk, chair of the board of trustees for the General Theological Seminary, the eight striking faculty members have accepted the board’s invitation to accept “provisional reinstatement” and to enter a process of reconciliation. A conflict between eight of the 11-member faculty and the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, who became GTS dean and president in July 2013, was made public late in September when e-mails and letters from the departing professors to students were circulated and the professors announced a work stoppage.The full text of the Oct. 20 letter to Sisk follows.Dear Bishop Sisk,Thank you for your invitation to come together to find a way forward.We receive this invitation in the good faith in which it is offered. Thank you also for acknowledging that healing is not an easy thing to accomplish; we are appreciative of both the alacrity with which you seek to facilitate our return to work and the attention you are giving to a long-­term process of reconciliation for the entire Seminary community.We accept your offer of reinstatement to our positions, and the salaries and benefits outlined in our contracts in effect prior to September 25, 2014. We look forward to being able to do this as soon as possible. Like any member of the Seminary’s faculty we agree to abide by the terms of the Seminary Constitution, Bylaws and policies. Given some of the confusion that has arisen about these texts in recent weeks, we will need you to provide us with copies of them: this would help us as we seek together to work within them. We are pleased to see that during the “cooling off period” all of the parties’ respective legal arguments and positions will be reserved.We also commit with energy to the holy work of reconciliation which we understand to be very important for the health of the entire institution and all of its constituent members: faculty, board, administration, staff and students alike. You mentioned in a telephone conversation the possibility of using a Mennonite group to facilitate this process. We heartily accept this proposal, since we have great respect for their expertise in this area.If, God forbid, at the end of the academic year we find that the collective process of reconciliation has not worked well, we ask that there be some understanding that appropriate severance will be made available to enable us and our families to make a transition. Lest we be misunderstood here, let us state clearly that we will devote ourselves fully to the difficult work of reconciliation this  year.As you know, one of our principal concerns has been to ensure that the seminary workplace be one of mutual respect and collegiality. As we move forward and return to our work, we ask that  you consider the appointment of an ombudsperson agreeable to all sides who would act during this “cooling off period” as an interlocutor and safe person to whom complaints could be referred if need be. This will help all of us to feel less on edge and safer, and so will be an indispensible means of helping the process of reconciliation to work well.As an important sign of our movement forward together, any public acknowledgement of these agreements should be issued together.Thank you for this very positive step forward for the sake of our Seminary, our students, and staff and God’s church.Yours sincerely,Professors  Davis,  DeChamplain,  Good,  Hurd,  Irving,  Kadel,  Lamborn, Malloy.

The Apopka Voice Exit Poll: Which issues impacted your vote the…

first_img Mama Mia April 18, 2018 at 3:05 pm You left “character, integrity, and judgement” out of your list of reasons to vote for a candidate. These are more important than any of the others. Lyin’ Bryan has already backed off his promise to cut his salary in half. He’s also hedging on removing the red light cameras. I know he was shamed into eventually keeping his salary promise but makes you wonder what the next con on Apopka voters will be.

Please enter your email address here Decision Apopka 2018Opinion/AnalysisBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceA record number of Apopka voters turned-out on Election Day and voted with certainty on who they wanted to lead them.But what exactly were the voters telling their leaders?In the course of eight years and four election cycles, Apopka voters have axed six straight incumbents running against a challenger. Apopka voters have destroyed a national trend of incumbents in municipal elections winning between 88% to 93% of the contests they compete in against challengers to their seat. Consequently, Apopka has unofficially gone from a City Council with the most experience in the state, to possibly the least.So is Apopka simply voting incumbents out of office without other factors? Or are there issues that drove this election in a specific direction?It could well be that there are core issues that persuaded voters to make another course correction in a post-Land Apopka and not simply a dislike for candidates they voted in favor of the previous term.It’s a mystery that needs to be solved.Today, The Apopka Voice will begin the search for answers and not theories on understanding the 2018 election. And what better way than to ask our readers to weigh-in? We’re calling it The Apopka Voice Exit Poll, and it will be an attempt to get to the bottom of what the Apopka voter was thinking when they cast their ballots.The poll opened Monday at noon and will close today at noon.To participate in the poll, simply answer the five questions below.

Two cyberdissidents released another sentenced to 30 months in prison

first_img News VietnamAsia – Pacific July 31, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two cyberdissidents released another sentenced to 30 months in prison April 7, 2021 Find out more April 22, 2021 Find out more A court in Ho Chi Minh City sentenced dissident Nguyen Dan Que, in custody since March 2003, to 30 months in prison on 29 July. Two other cyberdissidents, Pham Que Duong and Tran Khue, were released, respectively on 29 and 30 July. News Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang A court in Ho Chi Minh City sentenced dissident Nguyen Dan Que, in custody since March 2003, to 30 months in prison on 29 July. Two other cyberdissidents, Pham Que Duong and Tran Khue, were released, respectively on 29 and 30 July.Reporters Without Borders condemned the sentence against Nguyen Dan Que. “This eminent doctor has already spent more than 18 years behind bars. He will now spend more than a year in prison for having posted articles critical of the authorities on the Internet. This sentence against a campaigner for freedom of expression is utterly vicious,” said the organisation. Nguyen Dan Que, who is aged 61, was not represented by his lawyers in court and according to sources cited by Reuters, was constantly interrupted when he tried to defend himself during the hearing.Tran Khue and Pham Que Duong were sentenced at the beginning of July to 19 months in prison “for abusing democratic rights with the aim of harming the interests of the State”. Since the sentences corresponded to the amount of time the two men had already spent in custody their release had been expected at the end of the month.Police arrested Nguyen Dan Que at his home in Ho Chi Minh City on 17 March 2003. The champion of free expression had already spent 18 years in prison and was only released in 1998. His arrest came after he posted a statement in which condemned the lack of press freedom in the country.The statement was in reaction to remarks by the foreign affairs ministry spokesman who said on 12 March that freedom of information was guaranteed in Vietnam.He is suffering from high blood pressure and a stomach ulcer. His family has never been allowed to visit him or to supply him with the medication he needs. Twelve Nobel prize winners on 22 September 2003, wrote to secretary general of the Vietnamese Communist Party, expressing concern about Nguyen Dan Que’s state of health and asking for him to be allowed proper medical care and the right to visits from his family while awaiting his release.

The church has entered into a unique collaboration with DCFS and All Saints Church to use former preschool rooms as family friendly site for court ordered monitored visits between children and their parents.Visitation is the number one factor in family reunification. The goal is to reunite children with their parents and get them out of foster care and back into their homes. As a priority at the highest levels of LA County Government, DCFS developed a new methodology for court ordered monitored visits: engage the faith-based community as collaborative partners to provide family visitation centers on church grounds using volunteers as coach-monitors.The Family Connect Pasadena visitation program grew out of this effort. Begun in January 2013, it uses a coach-monitor approach to support children and parents as they reconnect and rebuild bonds in a nurturing, comfortable, family friendly environment. There are currently three sites: DCFS family Room, FUMC, and Learning Works, with plans to expand within the Pasadena area and out to El Sereno and Highland Park.Please join us as the City of Pasadena, LA County, First United Methodist Church, All Saints Church and the community celebrate this collaboration to better the lives of children and their families.First United Methodist Church of Pasadena, 500 East Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, (626) 796-0157 or visit fumcpasadena.org.

The Racial Divide of Flood Damage Buyouts

About Author: Seth Welborn Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago According to new research from Rice University, government buyouts of flood-damaged homes disproportionately benefit whiter, wealthier communities, even as low-income and minority homeowners are more likely to participate in such programs.Scientific American reports that in a nationwide analysis of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, researchers found that buyout programs both create and reflect historical discriminatory practices, even if the implementing agencies comply with anti-discrimination laws.Researchers report that the phenomenon is especially prevalent in urban areas.“Basically, our analysis tries to follow the demographic trail,” said Jim Elliott, professor and chair of sociology at Rice and a fellow at the university’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research. “What we found is [buyouts are] not randomly distributed among neighborhoods and racial groups. Buyouts are about housing, and housing is a socialized asset” affected by race and other socioeconomic factors.“Cities have neighborhoods forged through long histories of racial segregation that live on to create unequal access to opportunities in good times and bad, as well as in ways that can accumulate across multiple of steps of housing transactions, even when the buyer is a government agency,” according to the study published in the sociology journal Socius.“Although sometimes blurry in practice and opaque in process, these steps matter because they allow racial inequities to enter at multiple points that can accumulate in unintended ways.”“This dynamic is not a contradiction,” said Kevin Loughran, co-author of the study and a postdoctoral fellow at Rice. “It is how privilege works in the age of climate change. It brings more options and public resources to those living in more socially advantaged spaces, especially if they own property, while leaving those in socially marginalized spaces more reliant on government assistance that is not only less likely to come but less trusted when it does.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: flood Insurance Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Court Reverses Foreclosure Case Dismissal on Note Enforcement Next: Joe Biden Releases $640B Plan for Housing in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

What a Democratic Senate Could Mean for Property Owners

It extended the national eviction ban through January and allocated $25 billion for rental assistance. Still, the relief was but a fraction of what Democrats had suggested.In a springtime proposal known as the Heroes Act, Democrats requested $100 billion for rental assistance as well as a $75 billion fund to help homeowners avoid foreclosure, Nova reported.President-elect Joe Biden has suggested he would support such an act.Back in July, VP-elect Kamala Harris, as a senator, introduced legislation that would ban all evictions and foreclosures for one year. Under her plan, renters would receive extra time to repay missed housing bills and would be guaranteed a right to counsel if evicted.The VP’s plan also calls for a ban on rent increases and late fees.Last fall, researchers at WalletHub examined possible political setups according to 13 key economic performance indicators—ranging from “real gross domestic product (GDP) growth” to “poverty rate” to the “consumer and mortgage debt per capita”—in order to determine the best political mix for various markets including housing.Those researchers determined that a blended congress, along with a Democratic president—might have been “best” for the overall economic health of the housing market as well as for that per capita state of consumer and mortgage debt. That report, along with data points and methodology, can be found at WalletHub.com.
