VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Albany, NY Theological Education Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest [Church in Wales] The Centre for Chaplaincy Studies in Cardiff, Wales, has been chosen to train chaplains for more than 150 church schools in Hong Kong.The center is part of St. Michael’s Theological College and Cardiff University, both of which have signed a partnership agreement with SKH Ming Hua Theological College in Hong Kong to develop chaplaincy training. The Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (Anglican Church in Hong Kong) is working towards appointing a chaplain in every church school.The Rev. Canon Andrew Todd, director of the Cardiff-based center, recently welcomed the first students from Hong Kong, who have registered on the Cardiff Master of Theology in Chaplaincy Studies program.“It is fantastic to see this link develop, which will bring together chaplains from Hong Kong, the U.K. and elsewhere,” he said. “This will enrich the learning of all concerned and develop our understanding of chaplaincy as a global phenomenon.”The contract reinforces the growing international reputation of the center, said the principal of St. Michael’s College, the Rev. Canon Peter Sedgwick.“This is a very exciting new partnership which will enable us to take our wide experience and expertise in chaplaincy across the world,” he said. “It is good to see the two provincial theological colleges working so well together. I look forward to even greater collaboration in the future.”Students will travel to Cardiff to study a number of times each year, but it is expected that courses will also be developed in Hong Kong by center and Ming Hua staff working together.Gareth Jones, theological consultant to Hong Kong Archbishop Paul Kwong and dean of Ming Hua, said, “Chaplaincy is a key part of Archbishop Paul’s vision for ministry in the Province of Hong Kong, and the Cardiff Masters program provides the perfect foundation for our future work in this field. We feel there’s a real meeting of hearts and minds between St. Michael’s and our Ming Hua College, in this and other areas, and we are very excited about what we will achieve together.”Professor Terry Threadgold, head of the School of History, Archaeology and Religion, and pro-vice chancellor of Cardiff University, said, “The university is delighted at the start of this new chapter in education for chaplains wishing to enhance their skills through the Cardiff Centre for Chaplaincy Studies. The partnership will not only offer SKH Ming Hua Theological College, Hong Kong students the chance to participate in the proven and respected M.Th. in Chaplaincy Studies, but also establish a further link between the university and Hong Kong.”For more information about Cardiff Centre for Chaplaincy Studies, visithttp://www.stmichaels.ac.uk/chaplaincy-studies.php Associate Rector Columbus, GA Asia, Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Director of Music Morristown, NJ center_img Rector Tampa, FL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Martinsville, VA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Rector Washington, DC Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA 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 Rector Smithfield, NC Anglican Communion, Featured Events Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Bath, NC Rector Collierville, TN Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Featured Jobs & Calls Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit an Event Listinglast_img read more

Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Minneapolis, Minnesota] Diocese of New York Assistant Bishop Mary Glasspool left no ambiguity about her plans to attend the Lambeth Conference 2020. She is going, even if her wife was specifically denied an invitation.“The Diocese of New York needs to be represented. We need to be at the table,” Glasspool said Sept. 19 during an informal group discussion about Lambeth during the House of Bishops’ fall meeting.The question of whether to go to Lambeth or to stay home has fueled anxiety this week among some of the Episcopal bishops and spouses gathered at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s decision to exclude spouses of gay and lesbian bishops from next year’s Lambeth Conference sparked an uproar within The Episcopal Church and in some other corners of the Anglican Communion.Should Episcopal bishops skip the conference in protest? Should they go and make their objections clear while in England? Should the spouses who were invited take their own principled stands, and what would that look like? Should the House of Bishops agree on a unified response to what some see as an injustice?Such questions were to be raised during an afternoon session Sept. 19 in which the spouses accompanied the bishops. That session was closed to reporters, to allow for open and honest conversations, but earlier in the day, Episcopal News Service was able to sit in on the smaller group discussion and listen to about 15 of the bishops share their thoughts, sometimes conflicted, on the best paths forward.Glasspool opened the discussion with a pragmatic approach.“Let’s prepare ourselves as best we can, whether we’re making our witness at home or in England,” Glasspool said. She plans to travel to England with her wife, Becki Sander, even if Sander won’t be able to attend official Lambeth gatherings.Glasspool also cautioned her fellow bishops not to let this one issue dominate discussions at Lambeth, especially if doing so might provoke a conservative reaction, such as a new statement opposing same-sex marriage.“If you take away all the fear and all my anxiety and all everybody else’s anxiety and ratchet it down, it’s a two-week conference. … My hope for us is that we can prepare as best we can, that we don’t go in blind,” she said.All active bishops of The Episcopal Church were invited to the Lambeth Conference 2020, along with their counterparts in the Anglican Communion’s 39 other provinces. Spouses typically are invited to the Lambeth Conference, which is held about once every 10 years. The 2020 conference starts July 22.Maine Bishop Thomas Brown, center, and his husband, the Rev. Thomas Mousin, left, speak to Christopher Probe, husband of Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, on Sept. 17 at the House of Bishops’ meeting. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceGlasspool received a letter from Welby in December 2018 saying Sander was not invited. At the time, Glasspool was the only Episcopal bishop with a same-sex spouse. After Maine Bishop Thomas Brown was consecrated in June, he too received an invitation to Lambeth and a letter from Welby that said Brown’s husband, the Rev. Thomas Mousin, was not allowed to come.Brown attended the small group discussion on Sept. 19, as did the Rev. Bonnie Perry, who will be consecrated bishop of Michigan in February. Perry has not yet received an invitation, but her wife, the Rev. Susan Harlow, presumably would become the third Episcopal spouse excluded from the Lambeth Conference. Brown and Perry are still deliberating over how they and their spouses will respond.Diocese of Western Michigan Bishop Whayne Hougland told the group that he was interested in talking about how all bishops and spouses can support each other in their decisions.“How can we provide appropriate pastoral concern for those who are not going as members of this house for reasons of conscience and those who are going but aren’t invited to participate?” Hougland asked. “How can we be proactive and acknowledging the needs that might be there?”El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves, who serves as vice chair of the House of Bishops, suggested that the bishops discuss such questions and other strategy matters at their tables during the closed session later in the day. With an estimated 134 bishops attending this week’s House of Bishops’ meeting, the larger group isn’t always conducive to strategic planning, Gray-Reeves said, but individual bishops can form smaller planning groups that could report to the full House of Bishops at its next meeting, in March.The Rev. Bonnie Perry, left, bishop-elect of the Diocese of Michigan, talks with her wife, the Rev. Susan Harlow, on Sept. 17 at the House of Bishops’ meeting. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceSome of the bishops noted that the 10 months until the start of the Lambeth Conference doesn’t leave much time to spare. Aside from the spouse issue, they discussed a range of points about preparation for Lambeth.Several suggested that the bishops schedule a session at their March meeting focused on restorative justice and reconciliation, to equip the bishops for developing relationships with Anglican bishops despite any theological differences.They also suggested studying 1 Peter, since that Scripture will be a central text at Lambeth 2020. Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth, who attended the last Lambeth Conference in 2008, said he found the Bible studies to be powerful experiences that helped break down barriers between the participating bishops.“That was the place where people, at least I heard over and over, people’s hearts were softened and arms were opened,” Hollingsworth said.Security for the bishops was another concern raised. They also suggested discussing communications strategy at the House of Bishops’ March meeting, with a more intensive breakout session on how to interact with the news media, for those bishops who expect they will need such training at Lambeth.Some bishops and spouses already have decided they will not attend Lambeth 2020 as a matter of conscience, and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, in his sermon during the opening Eucharist on Sept. 17, urged the bishops to respect individual decisions. He confirmed he will attend. “I’m going as a witness to the way of love that Jesus has taught me,” Curry said.But even those thinking of skipping Lambeth have made clear they aren’t breaking with the Anglican Communion and want to find ways to show support for maintaining relationships across the Anglican Communion.Nebraska Bishop Scott Barker raised the question of what he would do if he chose to stay home, and whether other bishops who make similar decisions can gather in an intentional way behind a positive message. That prompted a discussion of what such a gathering might look like and where it could be held.Kentucky Bishop Terry White offered a lighthearted response, playing off the name of a small city in his diocese.“I’m willing to host something in London, Kentucky,” White said, prompting laughter from the group. “They have a great chicken festival.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Armed attack on independent daily’s office in Sanaa

first_imgNews News January 6, 2021 Find out more YemenMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about an armed attack on 12 February on the office of the independent daily Al-Ayyam and the home of the editor and his family, which share the same compound in Sanaa. Police later arrested four of the newspaper’s employees, one of whom had exchanged shots with the assailants, killing one of them.“It is essential that the Yemeni authorities carry out an investigation to establish the circumstances of this attack, in which it would seem that an unscrupulous real estate developer’s harassment of the past few months escalated to an unprecedented level. The authorities have a duty to protect the newspaper and its staff.”The attack on the newspaper’s compound was carried out by a dozen gunmen who had been sent to evict its occupants. The newspaper’s security guard fired back, killing one of them and wounding two others. Editor Hisham Bashraheel said he had received many threatening phone calls in recent months from people claiming to own the land where the newspaper has had its office for the past 30 years.Thamam Bashraheel, one of Al-Ayyam’s journalists, told Reporters Without Borders that he thought that the harassment of the newspaper was an “indirect way of making it shut up.” He also criticised the time taken by the police to arrive after their help was requested. The police arrested three member’s of the newspaper’s staff – Arhab Hassan Yassin, Hisham Bin Taleb and Mohammed Awad – and the security guard, Ahmed Omer Al-Abadi.Created in 1958, Al-Ayyam has no political affiliation and is one of Yemen’s leading dailies.

They risk a six-month prison sentence.In a series of articles from 22 February 2004, the journalists quoted extracts from Danish military intelligence reports, passed to them by agent Frank Soeholm Grevil, according to which there was no credible information available on the existence of WMD in Iraq before the March 2003 military intervention.The existence of WMD was the chief argument advanced by Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to justify Danish involvement alongside the US-British coalition.

It is de-skilling parents and knocking their confidence,” explained Novas head of policy and communications Una Burns.“We have children presenting in our hubs who have lived in hotels and they are struggling to chew and swallow, because their parents haven’t been able to prepare proper food when they’re living in hotels. The children are still on puréed food in pouches, at two and three years of age, because it doesn’t perish the same way fresh food does.”“So, they’re swallow reflexes haven’t developed.”Other basic developmental milestones are being missed in children who have been living for long periods in emergency accommodation.Ms Burns also said that there is little space to move around in this type of accommodation so children are finding it difficult to learn to crawl and learn to walk.These are things that we wouldn’t associate with homelessness, Ms Burns continued.“Children are also experiencing emotional challenges from the insecurity and anxiety of not knowing where they are going to sleep from night to night.“There is no targeted mental health interventions for children who are living in high stress congregated settings – whether that’s a hub, or direct provision, or a domestic violence shelter.”Ms Burns said Novas has sought funds through the government social supports agency, Pobal, to develop play and creative therapies at its family hub in Ennis, which opened last June providing supports for five families.“We want to develop a template that might be used nationally to support children in their mental health, in their physical development, and their ability to express the anxieties that they experience from these high-stress congregated settings.“We also have a hub in Dublin, catering for up to 11 families. We try to keep them small, because small hubs mirror a home environment more closely; there’s less conflict between families; it’s easier to support families; and it’s easier for them to live independently,” she explained.
