Continuing Indaba enables ‘gospel-shaped conversation’

Which the Orthodites have quit doing. There is, in point of fact, a distinct difference between feeling excluded because you’re disagreed with and being excluded because of who you are. the Indaba process welcomes all who will come to listen, to be open, to be transformed, to be changed and to be in community.

El Camino Real, Gloucester, and Western Tanganika are in provinces of the Anglican Communion that have vastly differing views on homosexuality, women’s ordination (especially to the episcopate!), and other things. And yet their unity in Christ allows them to continue to come together and become friends. The point of the story is that no one walks away.

But this time, after the year 2003, when a part of the body of Church as Anglican adapted different outlook on righteousness of the Church and cast doubt on the Bible, contradicting CORE value of the Bible, shook the foundation of the Church built on the body of Christ. Christians believe Christ by faith, love and works, based on biblical truth. But this radical change jolted the foundation of Anglican Communion built under Body of Christ.Knowledge about misty of Body of Christ that saves our souls is founded on biblical truth. Generation of the past since resurrection of Christ carries that glorious torch of Christ to new generation and proclaims the gospel to every individual like Olympic torch passing thru individual hand to another finally enlighten the greatest show of the earth. Enlighten human heart with new idea need miraculous sign, only “Indaba” or reasoning could not transform. If purpose of “Indaba” is to transform faith of the generations to newly found idea, originated from cultural evaluation, it is sure be failed, as Christ taught us God’s Holiness differs from holiness of the world which comes from body and blood of human. Indaba could help identify the difference and live peacefully.

July 30, 2012 at 5:07 pm Not one in a thousand Episcopalians knows what the word “indaba” means, and of the handful of those who do, many find it elitist leftist-speak.Effective communications demand the use of understandable language, not trendy terminology meant for the few, and spoken by the few.

Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Father Ron Smith says: July 30, 2012 at 6:46 pm The word “indaba” isn’t “elitist leftist-speak: it is a word that comes from our brothers and sisters in Africa and isn’t meant to be trendy, but to be universal and descriptive. It means “gathering” or “meetings” and may be linked to what former Archbishop of Cape Town Desmond Tutu said when he was asked what the strength of the Anglican Communion was: “We meet.” Rector Albany, NY August 9, 2012 at 6:20 am “The reckoning will be rooted in the fact that God does not change and there is no “progressive” element in the Holy Trinity.” – Peter Cabbiness –Then this would have ruled out the Incarnation of the Third Person of The Holy Trinity. Was that not some sort of ‘progression’ in the heart and mind of God? Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH [Episcopal News Service] Enabling conversation across difference has been the main objective of the Anglican Communion’s Continuing Indaba and Mutual Listening Process. But the fruits of the program in breaking down barriers and building friendships across vastly different contexts have far exceeded any expectations, according to the Rev. Canon Phil Groves, who said the guiding principle and the key to its success has been in placing Christ at the center of the conversations.“People are passionate about the gospel, and sometimes that leads to deep disagreements,” Groves, the program’s facilitator, told ENS in a recent interview. “But once Christ is placed at the center of a conversation, people begin to work for the good of the whole rather than to win an argument.”Groves attended the 77th General Convention in Indianapolis and witnessed the Episcopal Church commit itself (in Resolution D008) to deepening its involvement with Anglican Communion ministries and networks and to using the Continuing Indaba process to encourage “conversations across differences to strengthen relationships in God’s mission.”Groves said he found the deliberations at General Convention encouraging. “There was a clear sense that the Anglican Communion is something very significant and that [there is a] … deep desire to be linked up with people who may radically disagree with the direction of the Episcopal Church.”[ooyala code=”l1M21pNTqPLgcqD_SoOTVqW2t0J7FtcR”]Since its 2009 launch, the Continuing Indaba and Mutual Listening Process has facilitated four pilot conversations, each consisting of three dioceses from different Anglican Communion provinces. Participants from each diocese included the bishop, and several clergy and lay leaders.The program, which is partly a continuation of the Anglican Communion Listening Process, has enabled Anglicans to discuss and learn about experiences from contexts far removed from their own and to wrestle with differences concerning issues such as human sexuality and theological interpretation. (A process of Indaba, a Zulu word meaning purposeful discussion, formed the basis for groups of around 40 bishops that met each day during the Lambeth Conference in 2008.)Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori recently told ENS that the Continuing Indaba program has “provided remarkable opportunities for Episcopalians and Anglicans to learn about the realities of life in different parts of the world, and hearts are being transformed thereby.”Continuing Indaba is helping “to provide the life-blood and breath that can revivify and revitalize the communion to action and service in mission,” said the Rev. Tobias Haller, a General Convention deputy from the Diocese of New York, who has served on the Continuing Indaba reference group alongside representatives from Africa and the United Kingdom.“When Jesus described how it was that his disciples would be known, it was not by the splendor of their churches or the number of their congregants, by the beauty of their worship or the nobility of their ethics, but by the love they show to one another,” said Haller, in a recent post on the Continuing Indaba website. “Continuing Indaba is a means to demonstrate this love, in gospel-shaped conversation and engagement with one another…”“The relationships are key to our healing,” said Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves of the Diocese of El Camino Real, which joined its companion dioceses of Gloucester in England and Western Tanganyika in Tanzania to participate in one of the Continuing Indaba pilot programs.“We gather in Christ. We are one in Christ. That is what binds us together. Not our particular beliefs, not our theology, not in the way we read Scripture,” Gray-Reeves told ENS during the program’s final encounter in February in the Diocese of Gloucester.[ooyala code=”8xanRvMzqa_pphKMxLuLDckx-ySfEhg-“]The participants visited each of the three dioceses, usually for more than a week each time, to experience the church’s mission in its local context and to engage in “meaningful conversation,” which is at the center of the Zulu concept of “indaba.”Gray-Reeves said the El Camino Real-Gloucester-Western Tanganyika partnership had begun with a focus on human sexuality issues but that the group had since learned to accept one another’s differences concerning that topic. “We all realize that the bigger conversations are about poverty, about generations, about Millennium Development Goals, about evangelism and discipleship,” she said.In early July, Gray-Reeves and bishops Michael Perham of Gloucester and Sadock Makaya of Western Tanganyika wrote to Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams reflecting on their Indaba process, underscoring the importance of the project and expressing their hope that it will be expanded within the Anglican Communion.“The Indaba experience has accelerated our bonding; our depth of candor with each other; and our sincere caring for each other as individuals and as representatives of our own dioceses and our respective cultures,” the bishops wrote.Makaya told ENS that unity throughout the Anglican Communion “is very important because it was the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ … that we should all be one. It is only when we are united that we can be a witness of the gospel.”For Anel Agueyo, a lay Latina from San José in the Diocese of El Camino Real, experiencing different cultures through the program has “opened my eyes to the broader aspect of what life is and what it consists of, and who God is.”The dioceses of New York, Derby in England, and Mumbai in the Church of North India also formed one of the pilot programs.For the Rev. Winnie Varghese, a lesbian Episcopal priest and native of Texas with family roots in the Mar Thoma Church of India, the path towards deepening relationships through indaba was not without challenges.Continuing Indaba works as long as it is “rooted in Bible Study and a daily common experience,” Varghese, rector of St. Mark’s-Church-in-the-Bowery in New York City, told ENS. “Its fundamental value is time together with people willing to be in conversation. But it means for all [involved] – particularly people of color, women, laypersons and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons – a willingness to put up with some insult for the sake of conversation.”During the first meeting in New York, Varghese said the group “spent a lot of time trying to figure out why we were there and wanting to ask big questions but nervous that we would cause offense or short circuit the process in some way.”Towards the end of the program, Varghese said that one of the women from India approached her to discuss sexuality because she felt the topic had not been adequately addressed during the group’s conversations. “We talked about it for a few hours. It was a good conversation. Basically, she did not want to dismiss me because of the relationship we had developed over the six weeks of time together, and I felt the same,” said Varghese. “In the end it’s all about relationships.”The other two pilot conversations included Toronto (Canada), Jamaica (West Indies), and Hong Kong; and Saldanha Bay (Southern Africa), Ho (Ghana) and Mbeere (Kenya).Now that the pilot program has concluded, Groves hopes that provinces and dioceses throughout the Anglican Communion will take the concept and model of Continuing Indaba and apply it in local contexts.Groves said that there’s a strong indication that several provinces – including Kenya, Hong Kong, West Africa and the U.S.-based Episcopal Church – “want to push the Continuing Indaba methodology forward.”“Episcopalians who participated in Continuing Indaba are advocating to those around them that this is something that is very significant for the Episcopal Church,” Groves said. Episcopal Church dioceses relating to partners around the world “will be inspired by the Diocese of El Camino Real and those relationships and will begin to ask: ‘how can we do the same things?’”Haller believes that Continuing Indaba “will be the lifeblood and breath of the Anglican Communion.” The program is “catching fire and inspiring people around the communion,” he said.The Church of England’s General Synod, meeting in early July, commended the use of Continuing Indaba to build relationships at diocesan and parish levels.Groves said that the program has worked so well because the participants have used biblical principles to understand how Christians should relate to one another. “Once the journey begins you find that you are working with very committed Christians,” he said, adding that the participants have understood that the key to relationships is holding up the “good of the whole with Christ as the head of the church.”The Rev. Canon Kenneth Kearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, told ENS that he has been encouraged by the commitment of Anglican provinces, including the Episcopal Church, to the Continuing Indaba program.“As more dioceses have engaged themselves in indaba across the communion, they have more and more wanted to import the lessons that they have learned. That is a very positive thing and it is promising that it is going to be replicated,” he said. “It’s about serious listening, serious engagement and a profound respect for one another. Any person or diocese that has experienced that finds new ways of expressing being Anglican.”–– Matthew Davies is an editor/international correspondent of the Episcopal News Service.

Wow! The temporary joy of abandoning any concrete standard of truth will at some point turn to grief. The reckoning will be rooted in the fact that God does not change and there is no “progressive” element in the Holy Trinity.last_img read more

To the left upon entry is the existing cottage, restored and lightly amended.To the right, the garden room and living spaces which are, light, bright, and open,experientially a direct counter to the experience of the house upon entry.

Authorities claim to have identified human rights activist’s murderer

first_imgNews Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption RSF_en Help by sharing this information Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing RussiaEurope – Central Asia September 28, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities claim to have identified human rights activist’s murderer News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Alexander Bastrykin, the chief investigator at the Russian prosecutor’s office, today told a visiting delegation from the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists that investigators have identified the person who killed human rights activist Natalia Estemirova and hope to arrest him soon.Bastrykin said the evidence gathered in the course of the investigation left no doubt that this was the person who killed Estemirova in the North Caucasus in July 2009. The police know in which republic the suspect is currently located and expect to arrest him in the next few days, he added.The Russian human rights NGO Memorial’s representative in Chechnya, Estemirova was kidnapped on 15 July 2009 in the Chechen capital of Grozny. Her body was found a few hours later in the neighbouring republic of Ingushetia.“On the face of it, Bastrykin’s statement is good news but it will not satisfy human rights activists until the promised arrest takes place and a trial is held at which the suspect is demonstrated to be Estemirova’s killer,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We have not forgotten that the investigation into Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya’s murder and the trial of her alleged killers were a complete fiasco, one that showed that there is no political will in present-day Russia to solve the murders of journalists and human rights activists,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The people who ordered these murders are still at large and show no sign of being arrested, and that is outrageous.”A police source speaking on condition of anonymity already talked last February of solving the Estemirova murder. Then President Medvedev said in July that the police knew the murderer’s identity. But Memorial voiced scepticism about these claims as there were indications that the suspect was former Chechen rebel Alkhazur Bashayev, who had conveniently been shot dead in November 2009.The deaths of Estemirova and Politkovskaya, who had covered human rights abuses in Chechnya, highlighted the violence that prevails in present-day Russia and especially in the North Caucasus.center_img News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown May 5, 2021 Find out more Organisation to go further May 21, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Russia Newslast_img read more

first_imgProceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook NewsBreaking newsSimon steps up to save tenantsBy Bernie English – April 27, 2017 1063 Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Print [email protected] LIMERICK social housing agency which found itself at the centre of a storm for buying apartments where families would have to be evicted, has resolved the issue for many concerned tenants.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And the good news for those who qualify for housing by the agency is that they now have homes for life.Simon Mid West is at an advanced stage of negotiating to buy apartments at Fisherman’s Wharf, Grove Island, where it emerged that the company which bought the properties has served notice to leave on existing tenants.Jackie Bonfield, general manager with Simon MId West said the agency was astounded to discover people would be evicted to accommodate their new tenants.“We started into negotiations in the belief that these apartments were vacant,” said Ms Bonfield. “By the time we discovered that was not the case, we were in difficulty because we were contractually tied in at that stage”.The agency manager told the Limerick Post that they have now met with tenants and are “able to accommodate many of them. We cannot go into individual details because of confidentiality, but we have been able to sort out a number of people who have been served with notice”.And private landlords and auctioneers have “inundated” Simon with offers to help the Grove Island tenants who cannot be housed there by the agency.“We have had such a fantastic, supportive response from people involved in letting property in the city and they have promised not to let us down in helping to find alternative accommodation,” she said,“While this has been a very stressful situation for the tenants involved, the silver lining now is that those who can stay on when we buy the apartments will have a secure tenancy for life,” said Ms Bonfield.It’s understood that most of the Grove Island tenants who were already on the waiting list for local authority housing or in receipt of Housing Assistance Payment would qualify for housing by the Social Housing Agency.“Those tenants who cannot be helped by Simon at this time are now at least aware of us and we will do everything we can with the help offered by those in the letting business in the city to help them,” said Ms Bonfield.Limerick-based company Munster Pensioner Trustees Ltd bought apartments at Fisherman’s Wharf in Grove Island and subsequently issued residents with notices to quit, stating that they must have vacant possession to sell the properties.Tenants have vowed to fight the evictions, with one threatening to chain himself to the railings.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar while hearing a batch of petitions regarding medical facilities for covid-19 patients in the state, said “Several aspects will have to be gone into by State level and other committees, such as availability of transportation, availability of treatment and medicine at hospitals, covid care centres. Maintenance of hygiene, quality of food served etc. It will be appropriate if the member secretary of the committee places on record the protocol which will be followed by it. The State level Committee can lay down protocol for other committees. So that there is uniformity in functioning.” The Supreme Court in its order of June 19 had directed states to constitute an expert committee of doctors to monitor the hospital and other facilities dealing with Covid-19 patients. The state government in its written submission informed the court that in the state level expert committee, President of a well-recognized NGO, constituted with the objective of developing community health; and (b) the Director of the International Institute of Information Technology, Bengaluru, a registered not-for-profit society funded jointly by the Government of Karnataka and the IT industry under a public private partnership model are added. Death Certificate. On the issue of cause of death being included in death certificate issued by the BBMP to relatives of covid-19 patients or suspected covid-19 patients, the bench said “The state government must issue clarification on the issue and ensure that the medical certificates issued as per Form 4 (Death in Hospital) or Form 4A (Death of a person at any other place) under the Karnataka Registration of Births and Deaths Rules, unnecessarily don’t mention the fact that the deceased person was infected with Covid-19.” The bench observed that “Why do you (state) want to maintain a record of people who died due to Covid-19, this aspect infringes the Right to Privacy,” it said. On the issue of facilities provided to Pourakarmikas: Advocate Clifton Rozario informed the court that the BBMP is not conducting regular COVID-19 tests on the sanitation workers and even PPE kits are not provided. He claimed that on a visit to mustering centers it was found that only Rapid Antigen Tests were conducted on pourakarmikas and if they tested negative they immediately resumed duty. However, the counsel for the BBMP, refuted the claim and said both tests are being conducted on them to find if they are infected by the virus. The bench directed the BBMP to place on record details of test conducted-regular covid test and Rapid antigen test. Provide details of people tested positive on the next date of hearing, July 6. The state government also directed the state government to consider whether it can increase the insurance amount for pourakarmikas and other sanitation workers on par with the Central Government scheme. Under the Central Government insurance scheme the workers are eligible for a cover of Rs 50 lakh while under the state insurance scheme the cover is for Rs 30 lakh. The bench said “The State must consider enhancing the amount under its scheme to Rs 50 lakh and make it on par with the Central Government scheme. State must expeditiously take a decision on this.” The court will continue hearing the matter on July 6. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article LettersOn 29 Apr 2003 in Personnel Today This week’s lettersMonitoring e-mail couldn’t be easier I read Paul Nelson’s article urging the Government to give guidance toemployers about accessing employees’ e-mails (25 March, 2003) with a wry smile.Turn to the first benchmark of ‘Monitoring Communications’ in part three ofthe code and its simple recommendation is” “Establish a policy on theuse of electronic communications and communicate it to workers.” What morecan the Information Commissioner add? Employers should set their own rules (perhaps, dare I suggest, inconsultation with employees), based on business need and the relevantlegislation. It is hard to argue against a reasonable contractual policybrought in for a good sound business reason that makes it clear to employeesthe extent to which they can use private e-mail, the boundaries of that use,the level of privacy that they can expect and the measures that an employermight take if the employee breaches the policy. Derek Kemp Chairman, Human & Legal Resources Money women also oppose flexibility ‘Flexible working bad for business say money men’, that was the headline (15April). How sexist. Lots of finance directors are women. Carol Terry HR manager, The Scotts Company Publishing training crisis exaggerated I was concerned by the impression given in the article headed ‘Publishingtraining in crisis after SSC snub’. However sad – and, indeed, irritating – the disenfranchising of thepublishing national training organisation as an interface with Government mustbe for all the publishing industries, I cannot accept that ‘publishing is in atraining crisis’. From our perspective, as the body representing the £6bn magazines andbusiness media sector, the closure of the Publishing NTO is clearly adisappointing outcome. Publishers have invested a large amount of time andresource in bringing about its creation as the umbrella body for trainingacross our diverse £30bn sector, employing 300,000 or so people. However, publishers have a commendable track record for maintaining industrytraining arrangements and have strongly supported and funded over many years,for example, the Periodicals Training Council (for magazines andbusiness-to-business media), the Publishing Training Centre (for books andjournals), and the National Council for the Training of Journalists (fornewspaper journalists), along with a number of other respected programmes. Magazine and business media publishers will continue to work with theiropposite numbers – in national and regional newspapers, books and journals,directories and databases, newsletter publishing, and print and online media –to help employers to interface with the Government on training initiatives. Hopefully the Sector Skills Development Agency will, in due course, find away to facilitate this. In the meantime, I assure you it will be ‘business asusual’ on training in the publishing industries. Ian Locks Chief Executive, Periodical Publishers Association Tribunal lottery is a complete farce Having read the article ‘CIPD against merger of tribunals’ (25 March), I amastonished that Mike Emmott believes the current employment tribunal system”has the confidence of both employers and unions… and… deals fairly withthe issues it deals with”. In my 15 years’ experience as an HR manager in a variety of environments, Ihave found the tribunal system to be a lottery, dependant more upon theprejudices and whims of the panel than on common sense or even, shock horror,what the law actually says. Why else would my company have got as far as being called to answer a basicunfair dismissal claim when the applicant clearly had only seven monthsservice? Why else would I have had to respond to a claim for unlawful deductionfrom wages that was clearly two months out of time? Why else would my companyhave been called to respond to a claim that an employee had been denied theright to be accompanied at a disciplinary hearing when clearly the accompanierhad been in the room and involved at every stage? It is no wonder that the tribunal system is overworked when the lame, lazyand litigious of this country are not discouraged from these ridiculous claimsat application ‘response’ stage. “The system works and has the respect of the parties that use it”?I don’t think so.
