Episcopal Church Women hear message of revival at DaySpring Center

first_img Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Press Release Service Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT [Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida] A new model for the venerable Episcopal Church Women was presented at the first-day opener of the new Program Center at DaySpring Episcopal Center. The building, supported by ECW from its inception, is part of $20 million in improvements to the Diocese of Southwest Florida conference and camp center.“It’s about the possibilities of a new model based on the good that we have done,” said Lisa Towle, president of the Episcopal Church Women. Towle, from the Diocese of North Carolina, spoke to the group of about 180 women for well over an hour on the future of the ECW. The audience listened carefully as she reasserted the need and potential for the ECW, in spite of the difficulty of attracting new members in a time of church decline.Lana Fitzgerald, president of the Episcopal Church Women in Southwest Florida and a co-chair of the DaySpring Episcopal Center capital campaign to build the center, said that it was fitting that their 46th Annual Meeting was the first in the building and pool, which will be dedicated officially next Sun, Feb 26. “Women get done what needs to get done,” said Fitzgerald, a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Marco Island, Florida.In Southwest Florida, the ECW represent the women of 77 congregations. It also functions as a support organization for all of the traditionally women’s affiliated ministries of the Diocese, including the venerable Order of Daughters of the King, Church Periodical Club, United Thank Offering, Diocesan Altar Guild and Order of St. Luke. ECW has been a longtime financial supporter of DaySpring, donating everything from capital for buildings to general fund assistance for campers to rocking chairs for the entrance porch pavilion. The week of the meeting, contractors were pouring gunite for a new, A.D.A.-compliant geothermal pool, also supported by $17,000 in ECW funds.“You are women of the church,” said Towle, at the Nov. 17 meeting. “You are needed. You are valuable.” The role of the national ECW is about offering best practices, ideas and encouragement. “You are doing terrific things. This I know. But we can all do better in our lives.”Towle was elected at the ECW Triennial in Salt Lake City, which took place during the same meeting of General Convetion that elected Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. The simultaneous election was an accident; the election was the first in years that was actually contested. The ECW position is unpaid, and is expected to be full-time, though she does receive travel expenses. There is no national office overseeing the operation; it is done out of homes.To describe the potential of ECW, she described a number of anecdotes about welcome, both good and bad. The unfortunate was a Welcome Wagon lady who showed up on Towle’s doorstep after a move. Towle was literally barefoot andpregnant; the lady arrived with a plastic bag full of coupons, and then disappeared. “I have often wondered,” Towle asked, “are we, as ECW, kind of like that Welcome Wagon lady? Do we show up only when we see somebody new?”Towle got involved with ECW, however, because she found a different sort welcome, where she was immediately connected on the first time she arrived at a church. “All of a sudden, I found out I had people,” said Towle. “And they were connected people.”ECW, founded in 1871 when the General Convention authorized the Women’s Auxiliary to the Board of Missions, needs to reinvent itself, but it’s about individuals changing, not an organization. Often, they don’t want to change. “Change is good for everybody else, but I don’t need it,” said Towle. “There will be no change unless something happens in here.”Towle has been told she just trying to focus on the young. “Our elders laid too sure a foundation, they worked too hard, they lifted us up in the face of a lot of negativity and at great personal expense. And the anger they faced down from the church that they loved,” said Towle. “Every single person in this room is too valuable to lose.”The solution is for ECW women to move over a bit, but not to leave the table. For instance, a meeting might be held at Starbucks, and the meeting should end in time for moms to be able to pick up children in the carpool line. “Make room at the table for the new to come over and sit down to talk to us,” said Towle. “You are in it. You will always be in it.”The white glove, church supper tradition of ECW is a noble one, and has relevance today. “You are part of something that is so big and so grand that women for 150 years fought, I mean fought, to even form,” said Towle. “It took a century for women to get the right to vote in this church.”Towle said that there was no one perfect model for an ECW Chapter, only that it needs to exist  “amidst the goodness of the old.” The call for the ECW is a call for the laity to be missionaries in their own communities; there is no replacement for this role. “If I walk away, nobody is going to do it,” said Towle. “Don’t walk away. Find somebody to help you.”The DaySpring event was the first Episcopal Church Women meeting for Linda Lynch of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Tampa. She had decided to go at the request of Marcia Allison, the wife of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church rector, The Rev. Roy Allison. Lynch, who grew up Catholic, had never been a part of the ECW before, and had no preconceptions about what ECW was about. Having been a part of groups like Kiwanis, she longed to be a part of something larger, but also appreciated the difficulty that these service organizations face in recruiting new members.Lynch’s father was involved in the Knights of Columbus and Veterans of Foreign Wars. She knew nothing of the long traditions of the Episcopal Church Women; her mother was involved in a Rosary group, and that was always very inwardly focused. When approached by Allison, the Michigan emigre was eager to participate, as her husband was active on St. Mark’s vestry and she wanted a different role. “I want something different that what he was involved with,” said Lynch.Towle respectfully disagrees with those who think the ECW is irrelevant, or that women somehow have less time than they used to, though she acknowledges the distractions of things like team sports for families. “We all make time for what is important to us. If ECW is important enough for you, it is important to be there.”Success for the ECW, with chapters in thousands of Episcopal parishes large and small, means keeping those who are active and bringing in new. “If we keep pushing out, there isn’t going to be anybody to push out anymore,” said Towle. Each ECW Chapter knows individually what the danger point is, the time where they either reinvent themselves, or die.“If this goes away, who is going to pick it up? Once something happens it is so hard to reverse it,” said Towle. “Once something goes away, it is so hard to bring it back.”In a Eucharist with the church women, Bishop Dabney Smith told the gathered women that the change needs to be the right change. “If you are adapting, make sure of the change you are adapting to,” said Smith. “All the Lord says is you have to take care of the church. You don’t have to do it forever. But you have to do it now.”— Garland Pollard is director of communications for the Diocese of Southwest Florida.

Limerick people are all heart for Chernobyl children

first_imgAdvertisement TAGSAdi RocheAdi Roche’s Chernobyl Children International CharityDr Igor PolivenokEastern UkraineKharkiv Hospitallimerick Linkedin by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE generous response by Limerick people to a dramatic Christmas appeal has ensured that a team of heart surgeons can fly to war torn Eastern Ukraine this month to carry out lifesaving operations on 30 critically ill children.The “flying doctors” mission is funded by Adi Roche’s Chernobyl Children International Charity, which has been working with the cardiac surgery team at Kharkiv Hospital for the past six years. In that time, Irish people have contributed over €3 million to help children suffering from a genetic condition known as “Chernobyl Heart” who have had successful open heart operations performed by the visiting cardiac surgeons.The continuation of the cardiac missions have been threatened by the growing security crisis in Eastern Ukraine as well as a shortage of funds.But following a dramatic pre-Christmas plea for help from the director of Cardiac Surgery at Kharkiv Hospital, Dr Igor Polivenok, there has been a huge response from across the country to an appeal for funds for the next series of “flying doctor” missions.Adi Roche, voluntary chief executive of Chernobyl Children International, said the response to Dr Igor’s appeal has been “incredibly generous” at a time when many people in counties like Limerick are experiencing very serious financial pressures and have so many demands on whatever spare cash they may have.“We were astonished that all through the Christmas donations came in from Limerick,” said Adi.“Many families in Limerick have been involved in hosting children from the Chernobyl region of Belarus over the years and the response to the latest appeal from neighbouring Ukraine has been fantastic. It means that the missions we felt would have to be cancelled will now go ahead at the end of the month,” she explained.More than 6,000 children are born in Ukraine with genetic heart defects each year; one third of them will die before they reach the age of six unless they receive surgery. The operations carried out by volunteer surgeons from the US, Canada and Nicaragua with support nursing staff from Ireland and many other European countries, cost €1,000 each.For more information or if you would like to make a donation, visit www.chernobyl-international.com or call 021-4558774.

As of now, the High Court has identified 11 Government hospitals situated in the city of Allahabad and has asked the Government whether the following facilities are available with the these hospitals, namely:- 1) Intensive Coronary Care Units; 2) Intensive Care Units; 3) Dialysis Units; 4) Ventilators; and 5) Mobile X-ray Machines. The State has also been directed to inform the number of qualified Doctors and Nurses (apart from interns) working in these hospitals and details as to how the premises are sanitized and cleaned. The above status-reports have to be placed before the court by May 14, 2020. The order has been passed by a division bench comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Siddhartha Varma in a suo moto PIL registered against reports of unhygienic and inhumane conditions of various Quarantine Centers in the state. The bench had taken cognizance of the matter last Thursday, based on an e-mail sent by a practicing Advocate of the High Court, Gaurav K. Gaur, highlighting the “pathetic conditions” at quarantine centers. Gaur had informed the court that the one Virendra Singh, an engineer by profession, recently succumbed to the COVID-19 infection. He had informed his wife telephonically that the quarantine centre where he and his other family members were lodged did not maintain adequate hygiene. In its order today, the bench noted that Singh had succumbed to the infection, “despite medication”. The state had however intimated the court that there were sufficient steps taken by the State to improve the quarantine centers. Nevertheless, the bench proceeded to examine the matter while stating, “as we are not aware about the preparedness of the State with regard to medication it intends to administer to people who might be further getting affected by the Novel Covid-19 virus, we are continuing with the instant Public Interest Litigation.” Case Details: Case Title: In-Re Inhuman Condition At Quarantine Centres And For Providing Better Treatment To Corona Positive Respondent Case No.: PIL No. 574/2020 Quorum: Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Siddharyh Varma Appearance: Advocate Gaurav Kumar Gaur (for Petitioner) Click Here To Download Order Read Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Dad of missing Iowa jogger ‘reluctantly’ returns home to California as investigation continues

first_imgPoweshiek County Sheriff’s Office(NEW YORK) — The father of missing Iowa jogger Mollie Tibbetts has “reluctantly” returned to his home in California as the investigation into his daughter’s mysterious disappearance continues.“Very reluctantly, I’m being told I sort of need to do this,” Rob Tibbetts told ABC affiliate KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids. “We’ve called this sort of a halftime, a break.”Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, vanished the evening of July 18 while jogging in the rural farming town of Brooklyn, a close-knit community of about 1,500 residents.The disappearance was completely out of character for her, said Mitch Mortvedt, assistant director of field operations for the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigations, at a news conference last week. The state agency has formed a task force with the FBI and the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office to investigate.Authorities encouraged the missing jogger’s family to return to their day-to-day lives, Rob Tibbetts told KCRG-TV, adding that he still feels confident his daughter will be found.“I still feel that way, we all feel that way, that’s why it’s difficult,” Rob Tibbetts said. “I want to be there when she arrives.”Though he returned to California this weekend, Rob Tibbetts told KCRG-TV he’ll return to Iowa as soon as there are any developments in the case.He also said he wants to spread the word about his missing daughter across the country, KCRG-TV reported.Laura Calderwood, Mollie Tibbetts’ mother, told ABC News last month there are “no words to describe how you feel when you don’t know where or how your child is,” calling it “excruciating.”The public can submit anonymous tips on the website findingmollie.iowa.gov.“We are asking everyone to reflect back on the days prior to her disappearance in hopes of recalling details about any persons or vehicles in the area,” Mortvedt told reporters last week. “Individuals who commit violent crimes often display behavior that is recognized by those with whom they live, work, attend school or are in otherwise close relationships with.”Mortvedt warned that such behavior could include: Changing normal routines, changing sleep patterns, an unexplained lack of contact on July 18 or 19, unexplained injuries, getting rid of a car or unexpectedly cleaning a car.“It is often in cases like this that people may have information that they do not initially share for a number of completely understandable reasons, for example: They do not initially feel that it was important or assumed that somebody else may have already informed law enforcement,” he said. “We encourage you to provide whatever information you may have.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

USS William P. Lawrence Conducts First Strait of Hormuz Transit View post tag: Defence View post tag: Hormuz View post tag: conducts View post tag: Defense View post tag: USScenter_img View post tag: Navy Training & Education View post tag: first The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS William P. Lawrence (DDG 110) transited the Strait of Hormuz and entered the Arabian Gulf for the ship’s first time, March 1.The Strait of Hormuz is a vital waterway in the region. At its widest, the strait spans 21 miles, and offers the only sea passage into the Arabian Gulf.“The fact that the waterway is so narrow makes this a dangerous evolution,” said Lt. Jason Bardin, the senior officer on watch during the transit. “It is important not to escalate tensions while in transit. This is an innocent passage, we are not here to provoke but promote security and partnership.”Cmdr. Jana Vavasseur, commanding officer of William P. Lawrence said the transit was a success.“We came through smoothly with no major issues,” said Vavasseur. “Everything was handled professionally and safely.”Vavasseur explained that the ship’s success was due to training and the crew’s teamwork.“We’ve gone through extensive training, our joint task force exercise and composite training unit exercise experience helped us very specifically,” said Vavasseur. “We were able to build off of that training and build a terrific team. Whether it’s a direct role for a specific mission or a supporting role, every role is important.”In a typical week, more than 500 ships will sail through the Strait of Hormuz. 300 of these ships are energy carriers representing 40% of the world’s seaborne traded oil; the rest carry other maritime commerce critical to the vitality of nations in the Gulf and elsewhere in the region.William P. Lawrence, on her maiden deployment, is deployed with the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group to the U.S. 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and support missions for Operation Enduring Freedom.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 5, 2013 View post tag: News by topic March 5, 2013 View post tag: Naval View post tag: William View post tag: Straitlast_img read more
