I will be honored to be part of this celebration to such an historic celebration. Bishop Curry is truly anointed and fully committed to the work of God and the church. August 28, 2015 at 8:40 am If the service is televised here is a chance for the Cathedral Chapter to order that the Confederate windows of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and the Confederate flag be shown to thousands of viewers. This would show the great irony, that in a Cathedral that celebrates the bad history of Treason by a group of southern states; that 150 years after a “savage war” we celebrate the installation of Michael Curry, a descendent of slaves as the Most Reverend Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. ” Blessed is he or she who is not offended”.

I hope the same is true for Bishop Curry’s installation. The beauty and depth of the many “living stones” that is the Episcopal Church as reflected through music, ceremony, and word should be offered to a world often searching for meaning and a home. Please televise it, produce a DVD, and request all diocesan bishops to strongly urge their parishes to inform their congregations of the event! August 2, 2015 at 5:56 pm I am so impressed with Bishop Curry and his sermon at GC brought me to tears. One could really feel the Spirit through his voice and I really felt such hope that God will use Bishop Curry to help restore this Church and infuse much life into it. I appreciate Bishop Katherine’s episcopal leadership and now see that the Spirit really wants to keep us moving forward in the vision of God’s Reign to become or return to our early pre-Constantinian ecclesial reality as the “Jesus Movement”…a dynamic, fresh, Spirit-filled and led movement which rejects the institutional model of the Church (see: Avery Dulles’ Models of the Church). This process of de-institutionalization will be challenging for us as Episcopalians…but I hope Bishop Curry’s vision will be able to manifest….Let us pray and work toward this.

Seven thought provoking questions we all need to ask ourselves

first_img Reply Reply Reply My Little Bro … Nice suggestion for everyone to Do once in a while those thoughts/ questions as we ‘walk on life’ to improve, update and realize and make the difference not about the rest, but also with ourselves as we learn day-by-day.GoD Bless You, My Dear Treasure Chaz !!! The Anatomy of Fear charles towne June 6, 2021 at 1:50 pm NH 10 COMMENTS June 7, 2021 at 8:55 am These really create perspective, don’t they? We should ask ourselves these questions daily:) Faith & InspirationBy Charles TowneThese questions below are life defining, life changing. If we search our hearts and answer the questions honestly, we are on the threshold of great change, and even greater God- pleasing victory.Question (1)  Am I making a difference in my world and the people in it, today?Question (2)  Am I living my life as an example for good, as God intended, and thus impacting others that they may desire a close walk with the Source of all that is good?Question (3)  Am I a true visionary? And if I am, do I possess a grand vision for my life as the Father intended? If not, why not?Question (4)  Am I content with the mediocre? The blasé? Or, am I striving for the extra -ordinary, that God may use me to His perfect will, and divine purpose?Question (5)  Am I open to change, even though that change may be uncomfortable, even painful? Am I willing to yield my will to His, even though it removes me from the familiar, or my comfort zones that have enticed me and inhibited my growth for so long?Question (6)  Am I progressing toward a definite destination or goal, or am I low on spiritual fuel and in a holding pattern, just circling the airport, about ready to crash and burn?Question (7)  And this is the big one, am I going to be in the same place spiritually a year from now that I am today?May each of us find an unsurpassed joy as we walk with the one known as the Life-Giver.Live fully,Love openly,And make a difference, today.Dear Holy God, please, right now, today, this minute, help me to be what you desire me to be. I love you Father, and more than anything else I want to follow you in all things. Praise you, oh glorious one. AmenCharles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply Dear NH, and often it is that perspective that we fail to touch on isn’t it? Bless you, Chaz Reply charles towne Checklists are very important when performing complex tasks and critical to successful completion of the task regardless of how many times the task is performed. The professional pilot with thousands of hours flying a complex aircraft relies on checklists to successfully perform his duties during every flight. I submit that life is far more complex than any aircraft and this is the best checklist I have seen for a successful life. Refer to it every day…. Thanks Chuck.

Limerick Council in firing line over anti-social behaviour at Punch’s site

first_imgNewsLocal NewsLimerick Council in firing line over anti-social behaviour at Punch’s siteBy Alan Jacques – September 12, 2014 755 LIMERICK City and County Council has been condemned for allowing an abandoned hotel site at Punch’s Cross to become a location for anti-social behaviour, illegal dumping and street drinking after Traveller families moved into its main car park.According to  City West Labour Party councillor Joe Leddin, the Council and KPMG, the official receiver for Punch’s Hotel, have failed to manage the security and maintenance of the site pending its resale.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He claims that despite several requests to KPMG to properly secure and monitor both the building and the surrounding site, no action was taken.“The physical appearance of the entire site with weeds, rubbish and broken windows is an absolute disgrace and again no action or interest was taken by the City Council despite calls to do so.“It’s just not good enough for officials in the environment section to pass the problem to their colleagues in property management when both departments should have worked together to secure the site in the absence of any intent by the receiver to do so,” he said.He added that the site has now attracted Traveller families, who have located in the main car park, because there was no effort made to block vehicle access. He said that local residents had to endure various forms of anti-social behaviour with dumping, street drinking and partying at all hours.“Security is non-existent and until such time as the premises is sold, I am once again calling on the council to take immediate action to remove the Travellers and properly secure and clean the site with all associated costs involved to be levied against any future sale,” he said.A spokeswoman for Limerick City and County Council said that although it had not been formally declared a derelict site, the Council was making contact with the Receiver to improve the appearance of the building while it remains vacant.“We are aware that the Receiver is actively trying to find a buyer for the site and have it up and running as a viable business once again”, she said..

She has worked for a number of publications including The Syracuse New Times, Dallas Flow Magazine, and Bellwethr Magazine. She completed her Bachelors at Alcorn State University and went on to complete her Masters at Syracuse University. The January 2016 Employment Summary from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicated a bit of a slowdown, however, with 151,000 jobs added in the first month of the year—close to half of the previous three-month average.”Yet while it is important to take stock of our progress, this Budget is not about looking back at the road we have traveled. It is about looking forward and making sure our economy works for everybody, not just those at the top. It is about choosing investments that not only make us stronger today, but also reflect the kind of country we aspire to be–the kind of country we want to pass on to our children and grandchildren.” -Office of the Press SecretaryThe president’s budget plan, which will go into effect October 1, 2016, talks about several reforms, including a tax reform plan that would “modernize the business tax code to make it fairer and more efficient, and to create jobs,” the fact sheet said. In addition, two bipartisan agreements were passed to prevent the return of “harmful sequestration funding levels in 2018 and beyond, replacing the savings by closing tax loopholes and reforming tax expenditures, and with smart spending reforms.”The budget also includes a historic proposal regarding housing. According to an announcement from HUD, the president’s budget request for $11 billion to end family homelessness in the budget.”This significant investment is based on recent rigorous research that found that families who utilized vouchers–compared to alternative forms of assistance to the homeless–had fewer incidents of homelessness, child separations, intimate partner violence and school moves, less food insecurity, and generally less economic stress,” the Office of the Press Secretary stated.The Opening Doors program, which was the first-ever federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness, was launched by President Obama nearly six years ago. While that program has made strides, there is more work to be done, according to HUD. In January 2010, there were 54,000 homeless families nationwide, including 123,000 children; the Opening Doors program has reduced that number by 19 percent in the last six years. In some pockets of the country, however, the rental affordability crisis has resulted in an increase in homelessness among families, according to HUD.“Today, we can celebrate historic successes in reducing homelessness in all its forms—but we need to reach more families with the proven, cost-effective strategies that have driven that success,” HUD stated in its announcement.The president concluded his budget plan by noting that “the Budget is a roadmap to a future that embodies America’s values and aspirations: a future of opportunity and security for all of our families; a rising standard of living; and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids.  This future is within our reach.  But just as it took the collective efforts of the American people to rise from the recession and rebuild an even stronger economy, so will it take all of us working together to meet the challenges that lie ahead.”Click here to read the budget message of the president.

Based on the meeting, Karnataka agreed to allow passage for patients from Kerala, who are not infected with COVID-19, to avail medical services from hospitals in Mangaluru.”The dispute does not exist anymore”, SG told the bench. As per the parameters, the passage will be subject to medical examination by medical team at the Talapadi checkpost, Karnataka border. The entry to Karnataka will be for patients in critical cases such as accidents. Permission for entry to Karnataka will be only for government ambulances. There should be a medical certificate from a local doctor that the patients is not infected with COVID-19. Also, it should be further certified by the local doctor that no treatment for the patient is available in Kasargod or Kannur districts.On Friday, the Supreme Court had directed the Union Health Secretary to call for a meeting between Chief Secretaries of Kerala and Karnataka to formulate parameters for passage of patients from Kasargod district to access emergency medical services from Mangaluru amid the border blockade imposed by Karnataka in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. The order was passed while considering a Special Leave Petition filed by Karnataka against the Kerala High Court’s order directing removal of border blockade to allow passage for patients from Kasargod district seeking medical services in Mangaluru. A bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and Deepak Gupta had then posted the matter on April 7. The case pertains to blocking of National Highway by Karnataka, which resulted in denial of access to health services in Managaluru for Keralites residing near Karnataka border. After the 21-day national lockdown was declared on March 24, the authorities in Karnataka erected mud embankments on the arterial inter-state roads to Kerala. Nine patients have reportedly died after Karnataka police refused entry to ambulances ferrying them from places in border district of Kasargod in Kerala to Mangaluru, a preferred destination for treatment for border residents owing to proximity. The High Court had held that Karnataka’s road blockade resulted in the denial of access to health services, which amounted to infringement of right to life under Article 21. It also affected right to freedom of movement under Article 19(1)(d) of the Constitution, said the HC. The HC had observed that the blockade would lead to catastrophic results in Kasargod, as people near border had been relying on hospitals in Karnataka owing to proximity. The HC said that it was “compelled” to pass the orders, as the delay would lead to loss of lives. The Court passed the directions to the Union Government on the reasoning that the arterial roads that connect Mangalore in Karnataka to Kasaragod in Kerala are part of the National Highway network and it is therefore the duty of the Central Government to ensure that the said roads are kept free of blockades. Additionally, the Court observed that the guidelines issued by the Union Home Ministry under the Disaster Management Act had exempted emergency medical services from the ambit of lockdown.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
