Welshman Leigh Halfpenny is consistently impressive at the back for his Test side and for Toulon and his assured kicking from the tee catches the eye.

Frank Logue, chair of the deputies’ Evangelism and Church Planting Committee said the approved total is “an amount key volunteers and the program staff feel will carry on current work well in the coming triennium.”Another evangelism resolution, A006, was rejected by the committee. The resolution sought to collect additional demographic data on church leaders involved in church planting and ministry development as a way to encourage those ministries to greater reflect the communities they serve. Concerns were raised about how the data might be used in determining funding and whether the data’s benefits would merit the extra work.— David Paulsen Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Catherine Lee Doar says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Bath, NC 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 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Knoxville, TN Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Katie Wright says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Frank medeiros says: Submit an Event Listing In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Marcia Consuelo Lopes says: Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Special order in House of Deputies on Israel-Palestine set for July 9The resolutions on Israel-Palestine were whittled down to one, D019, for a special order of business that, for now, is scheduled for the morning session of the House of Deputies on July 9.D019 isn’t the only Middle East resolution still alive. Two other resolutions were approved without discussion July 8 as part of the deputies’ consent calendar – B021 on aid to Palestinian refugees and B003 reaffirming church’s stance that Jerusalem should be a shared holy city and calling the Trump administration’s relocation of the U.S. embassy an “obstacle to peace.”Six more resolutions on related topics are on the consent calendar for July 10.But Sarah Lawton, chair of the deputies’ Social Justice and International Policy Committee, said D019 was the resolution most likely to generate some controversy, or at least extended debate. It is titled “Ending Church Complicity in the Occupation” and includes language that would put the Episcopal Church on a path to end investments in companies that profit from Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.The House of Deputies was chosen as the house of initial action for all Israel-Palestine resolutions as part of an expedited process recommended by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev.

The house then approved a 66-resolution consent calendar, boosting the completed percentage to 21 percent.“The consent calendar is your friend,” Jennings told the deputies. “Repeat that with me.”Telling the deputies not to panic, Jennings still urge them to streamline their debate.

All are invited to show support for more women in the episcopate by wearing a purple scarf that day. Currently, the House of Bishops is less than 9 percent women (24 women, 261 men). This movement was started by then Diocese of California Canon to the Ordinary Stefani Schatz, who had been working toward a more equal representation of women’s leadership prior to her death a year ago. She handed out purple scarves at the 2015 General Convention.The Sisters of the Order of St. Helena are distributing the scarves from their booth in the Exhibit Hall. A purple scarf day gathering, open to women and men, will be held at 1:30 p.m. July 9 in the hallway in front of the worship space in the Austin Convention Center and will include brief talks from a variety of people and prayers for women who have offered themselves to the election process.According to the planners, Purple Scarf Day is a reminder that we can shift to a wider vision. “The vision is for a church in which women’s leadership is recognized and valued as well as men’s; in which our House of Bishops contains the perspectives, insights, and gifts of women rather than being a male-dominated hierarchy; in which seeing a variety of kinds of bishops helps all Episcopalians to recognize the image of God and the gifts for ministry in ourselves and in each other more fully,” the Rev.

Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] Much happens each day during General Convention. To complement Episcopal News Service’s primary coverage, we have collected some additional news items from July 8.St. David’s invites closer look at conservation efforts, solar arrayThose attending the 79th General Convention were encouraged July 8 to attend worship services at congregations around Austin, and those who chose to worship at St. David’s Episcopal Church a few blocks north of the Austin Convention Center were offered a bonus: an “eco tour” of the church led by two members of its Environmental Guild.The 10:15 a.m. tour group was a modest five people, including an Episcopal News Service reporter, but there was nothing small about the efforts underway at this downtown congregation since 2004.Genaro Lopez, one of the tour guides, said the Environmental Guild’s hope is that congregations churchwide can learn from St. David’s and replicate some of its conservation and environmentally friendly measures, from recycling programs to the centerpiece of the tour, a large solar panel array on top of the church-owned parking structure.“It’s not that hard to do. It just takes organization and the will to do it,” Lopez said.The solar array was completed and blessed in 2014 and features 576 solar panels that produce an estimated 200-megawatt hours of electricity a year, or enough to fulfill up to 75 percent of the church’s needs, said fellow tour guide Bob Davis. It cost $400,000, “but over a 25-year life, it will generate two or three times that,” Davis said, and most of the funding came from federal, state and city grants.Most congregations may see adding a solar panel array as a giant step to take, and it took about 10 years of work for St. David’s Environmental Guild to make it a reality. But like St. David’s, other congregations are encouraged to start with easy environmentally friendly measures and work up to bigger projects, Lopez said.One of St. David’s first steps was to eliminate the plastic foam cups it had been using for coffee hour. Instead, it created coffee mug “trees,” so the mugs could be used, washed and reused. Here are a few other suggestions from St. David’s:Recycling bins for everything imaginable, such as wine corks, batteries, eyeglasses, printer cartridges and pill bottlesWildlife habitat in a courtyard, where butterflies and hummingbirds like to congregateMotion sensors for lights and LED lightbulbsComposting of food scraps from the church kitchenHigh-efficiency dishwasherBeehives (the church decided not to keep its hives on site, placing them instead at a co-op organic garden out of town; the honey is collected once a year and sold in the church’s gift shop)— David Paulsen Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

House KvD is located in the woods of Teteringen, close to Breda. Important, from the residents point of view, was to experience the green environment in a most intense way. This ambition has formed the main concept of the building: A house that feeds in between the trees, giving every arbitrary movement a surprising perspective on the forest. The square-shaped volume keeps you, while moving through the building, in constant contact with the environment.Save this picture!© Rene de WitSave this picture!© Rene de WitThe square, that’s partly lifted by piles, embraces an open courtyard on which the entrance is situated. The living rooms are located on ground zero, the bedrooms are lifted and provided with horizontal orientated windows. The framework, situated on the outside of the building, are filtering direct incoming sunlight and give a beautiful ‘cut out’ view of the forest. They also intensify the sculptural characteristic of the volume. The façade is made of vertically placed black stained wooden parts. The subtle details in combination with shape and material make the house modern, but also reserved in it’s afforested environment.Save this picture!floor plansProject gallerySee allShow lessUSGBC Natural Talent Design CompetitionArticlesSpontaneous Architecture Mini-competitionsArticles Share Architects: Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© Rene de Wit+ 16 Share “COPY” ArchDaily “COPY” Projects 2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/45907/house-kvd-grosfeld-van-der-velde-architecten Clipboard House KvD / Grosfeld van der Velde ArchitectenSave this projectSaveHouse KvD / Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/45907/house-kvd-grosfeld-van-der-velde-architecten Clipboard Year: CopyAbout this officeGrosfeld van der Velde ArchitectenOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTeteringenWoodHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on January 10, 2010Cite: “House KvD / Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten” 10 Jan 2010.

At today’s hearing, a judge is to examine a request for their release on bail, a request that was rejected at a previous hearing on 10 January, when they were told they were charged with violating state secrets. Free Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo !Sign the petitionThey are facing the possibility of up to 14 years in prison just for trying to find out what is happening in the northwestern state of Rakhine, from which an estimated 690,000 members of the Rohingya community have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.“It is unacceptable that journalists are paying with imprisonment for their professionalism,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “That is why we are asking people to sign this petition demanding the immediate release of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo.“They are clearly the victims of a plot designed to intimidate fellow journalists who want to know more about the fate of the Rohingyas. We cannot accept that journalists are being systematically prevented from investigating one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.”Myanmar’s army is suspected by the UN and others of having carried out atrocities against Rakhine state’s Rohingya population since late August, atrocities that are tantamount to “ethnic cleansing”.Journalists are still being systematically denied access to the area, although they should be completely free to cover implementation of the repatriation agreement between Myanmar and Bangladesh, which was originally supposed to begin today at the latest.Bangladesh announced yesterday that the required procedures for respecting this deadline were far from being completed. Most of the refugees are refusing to be sent back to Myanmar until the authorities provide specific guarantees for their safety. Allowing reporters to cover the repatriation process would be the best way to avoid more atrocities leading to a renewed exodus.In September, RSF urged Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to lift the many restrictions on journalists.

The conference, titled “The Benefit of Risk and Adventure in the Outdoor Classroom,” offered a variety of workshops conducted by 21 presenters that were designed to inform and inspire an outdoor approach to education of infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children.A major focus of the conference was the value and benefit of supporting appropriate risk for young children. Conference attendees were invited to participate in hands-on activities common to innovative outdoor environments that encourage risk and adventure in children.Attendees worked on acquiring enhanced skills for cultivating and sustaining outdoor programs and natural environments at their centers, as well as practical information on supporting nature-child connections. Workshops focused on the value and benefit of creating reasonable risk in outdoor play, — Teacher Engagement, Learning with Nature, Photography with Young Children, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Outdoors, and Gardening with Children — among other topics.â€œThe increased energy and number of participants this year illustrates how the outdoor classroom movement has grown over the past ten years,â€ said Eric Nelson, director of the Outdoor Classroom Project â€œAll over the country early childhood educators are recognizing the value of getting their programs and the children in their care outdoors. As we speak, a major national research project is being drawn up that will help us understand the benefits of this new direction in early care and education.â€The plenary speaker was childcare facilities consultant Gary Andary, who focused on advocacy strategies and resources to help programs understand, implement, and respond to licensing/health and safety laws, regulations, policies and procedures when implementing outdoor classrooms.The Outdoor Classroom Project, an initiative of the Child Educational Center, is dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality, and benefit of outdoor experiences for children in early care and education programs through providing educational and consulting services on the value and design of engaging outdoor learning environments to teachers, administrators and parents.The Outdoor Classroom model addresses critical issues facing children today such as lack of exercise, preoccupation with electronic media, lack of safe space to play, and isolation and fear of nature.Research shows that regular play in nature has numerous benefits. Children with views of and contact with nature score higher on tests of concentration and self-discipline. When children play in natural environments, their play is more diverse with imaginative and creative play that fosters language and collaborative skills. Exposure to natural environments improves children’s cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning and observational skills.For more information about the Outdoor Classroom Project, please email [email protected], call (626) 296-1770, or visit www.outdoorclassroomproject.org.About the Child Educational CenterThe Child Educational Center is a nationally accredited non-profit organization providing early care and education at seven sites in the Foothill communities.

In the photograph relied upon by the prosecution, applicant is clearly shown sitting on the roof of his car alongwith national flag which prima-facie show that he had an active role to instigate unruly mob.”The FIR was registered under sec 147, 148, 149, 152, 186, 269, 279, 353, 332,307, 308, 395, 397, 427, 188, 120B and 34 IPC read with sec. 25, 27, 54 and 59 Arms Act , Sec. 3 of Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984 and Sec. 30 of Ancient Monuments Preservation Act.It was submitted by the Applicant that there was no specific role assigned to him in the alleged crime. It was also submitted that the best role the prosecution could assign in the case was regarding breaking of the barricades and in view of this, only the offence under sec. 186 of IPC can be attracted which is a bailable offence.Moreover, it was argued that he was “neither the instigator, nor the agitator” and did not have any active role in the crime or violence which happened in the area of Red Fort.On the other hand, Additional Public Prosecutor Virender Singh argued on behalf of the State that since the allegations against the applicant were very serious and sensitive in nature involving national issue, bail should not be granted by the Court in the matter.It was also submitted by the APP that he had an active role in the crime as he was one of the agitator and instigator of the unlawful assembly. While relying on the said photographs, the APP argued that the applicant was seen sitting on top of his car with a national flag in his hand and other tractors following him are shown to be around his car.Observing that there was a prima facie case against the applicant showing that he had an active role to instigate the unruly mob, the Court held:”Investigation is at nascent stage, therefore, the possibility that if applicant is admitted on bail, he may try to influence the investigation cannot be ruled out. Accordingly, at this stage no ground for bail is made out. Application is hereby dismissed.”Click Here To Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
