first_img Featured Jobs & Calls Tags Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Service work is another common theme of Episcopalians’ plans for honoring King’s calls for justice.The Diocese of Long Island’s Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministries is organizing a day of service work at two locations on Jan. 21. Young people will bag about 15,000 meals for a feeding ministry from 1 to 3 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. Then from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., they will greet guests and help serve a weekly community meal at Christ Episcopal Church in Babylon.Chattanooga, Tennessee, churches are participating in a local Day of Service on Jan. 21, as well as the city’s march and worship service.

Jarrett Kerbel, rector at Episcopal Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Philadelphia, took that message a step further in a blog post this week looking ahead to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He urged Episcopalians to see the holiday as not just a day of service but a day of action.“King was not an advocate for more feeding programs,” Kerbel wrote. “He worked tirelessly for changes to our laws that would create a more just order where feeding programs would not be so necessary. He worked to create the conditions where all people could exercise self-determination and self-sufficiency, for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods.”St. Martin-in-the-Fields is partnering with the interfaith organization POWER Philadelphia in offering a schedule of activities for the MLK Day of Action, including a rally outside a McDonald’s to call for a minimum wage increase and a “teach-in” to rally behind public policies that will improve education.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Martin Luther King Jr. Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Dioceses and congregations churchwide are planning events this weekend, from worship services to forums, for Episcopalians and their communities to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.King, whose federal holiday will be celebrated on Jan. 21, was born 90 years ago on Jan. 15, 1929. As a Baptist preacher in Montgomery, Alabama, and Atlanta, Georgia, he was the leading voice and icon of the civil rights movement in the late 1950s and 1960s until his assassination in 1968.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will mark the holiday weekend by participating in a panel discussion during a King event at 3 p.m. Jan. 20 at the Apollo Theater in New York’s Harlem neighborhood. “Unsung Champions of Civil Rights from MLK to Today” will feature a mix of one-on-one interviews and panels focusing on King’s legacy and other civil rights figures. More info and a link to a live stream of the event can be found here.Curry quoted King on “the redemptive power of love” in his much-heralded royal wedding sermon in May. “Dr. King was right,” Curry said. “We must discover love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world.”Daylong activities are planned at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California, on Jan. 21, including a continuous reading, over eight hours, of King’s speeches, sermons and writings. The event, “Let Freedom Ring,” will be held in the church’s nave.The Rev. Mike Kinman, rector at All Saints, said the marathon of readings was an idea he hatched years ago while serving as dean of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, Missouri. It stemmed from his personal tradition of reading from a collection of King’s writings and speeches every year on the federal holiday.“We advertised it as a complement of reflection to the King National Day of Service activities taking place in the community. And people came,” Kinman said, recalling the St. Louis event in an online post for All Saints. “They came for a half hour, for two hours, for the entire day. They read and they listened. School groups came after doing service projects and then had conversations about how what they had done and what they heard were related.”This will be All Saints’ third year hosting a similar marathon of King’s words.“I hope you will join me in … coming down for an hour, or two, or even eight and letting the words of this great man wash over you,” Kinman said. “Hear more than just the sound bites, and let your life be set on fire.”Some congregations are planning to join large community celebrations. In St. Petersburg, Florida, the city’s Episcopal churches will participate in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade, said to be that longest-running parade in the country to honor King.In the Diocese of East Tennessee, eight or nine Episcopal parishes and ministries are expected to march in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Knoxville, with the Episcopal School of Knoxville entering its own float. In Austin, Texas, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church will join a downtown march on Jan. 21, starting at the King statue on the University of Texas’ campus.The Diocese of Georgia is continuing its tradition of participating in an annual parade in Savannah, which typically includes a diocesan float and up to 100 Episcopalians. A post-parade Eucharist will be held at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Savannah.At other churches, the congregations are inviting the public inside for more intimate commemorations.St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., will celebrate King’s life and legacy at its two Sunday services Jan. 20 and follow up with the launch of a series of forums, “Instruments of Change: From White Guilt to Empowered Ally.” Church of the Holy Spirit in Lebanon, New Jersey, will host a service at 7 p.m. Jan. 21 that will feature readings from King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” as well as cello and organ music.The series of events hosted by All Saints in Pasadena will include a Diocese of Los Angeles event at 3 p.m. Jan. 20 featuring music by the Episcopal Chorale Society and a speech by Devon Carbado, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Hot property: Dated dress circle Noosa home sells at auction

first_imgThis waterfront home at 49 Witta Circle, Noosa Heads, has sold for $5.67m.A WATERFRONT home in need of an upgrade in one of Noosa’s most prestigious streets has sold under-the-hammer for $5.67 million, with agents claiming the coastal hot spot is proving immune to the pre-election uncertainty plaguing the property market.The four-bedroom house at 49 Witta Circle was sold at auction after a bidding war between four parties. One of the bedrooms in the home.“It’s on the water, picturesque, and an easy walk from Hastings Street and the beach. “The capital growth has been over 15 per cent on average for the past 40 years — hard to beat.” MORE: Tide turns for riverfront units Inside the home at 49 Witta Circle, Noosa Heads.The result shows the Noosa prestige market is “rock solid”, according to marketing agent Eric Seetoo of Tom Offermann Real Estate. RELATED: Waterfront living attracts buyers The kitchen in the home at 49 Witta Circle is quite basic.Mr Offermann said he was still finding demand strong, especially at the luxury end, where there was a critical shortage of stock.Tom Offermann Real Estate recently sold a waterfront house at 55 Wyuna Drive, Noosaville, for $4.75 million and 27 Mossman Ct, Noosa Heads, for $5.75 million.And an apartment in the La Mer complex on Hastings Street changed hands last month for a whopping $6.1 million. More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoInside the house at 49 Witta Circle, Noosa Heads.Agency principal Tom Offermann said he believed it was the highest Queensland house sale under-the-hammer so far in 2019. “Witta Circle is one of those ‘can’t go wrong locations’,” Mr Offermann said. “The … home was an oldie, but it occupies one of the most desirable locations on the waterfront near Hastings Street,” Mr Seetoo said. The view from the unit at 5/37 Hastings St, Noosa Heads, which has sold for $6.1m.“Property markets usually slow down during an election, but not this time in Noosa,” he said.“The traditional slowdown isn’t apparent this time, with most clients adopting a wait and see attitude. “Some are even predicting a post election rush into investment property before any negative gearing or capital gains tax changes are introduced.”Adrian Reed of Reed & Co has just listed a five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion at 54 Noosa Parade with a price guide in the late $7 million to early $8 million range.Given the property’s location, river views and proximity to Hastings Street, Mr Reed is expecting it to be one of the most significant sales of the year. This house at 54 Noosa Pde, Noosa Heads, is for sale. The house at 49 Witta Circle is right on the water at Noosa Sound.“We found four bidders, three of whom were present, and another was on the phone from overseas, each with well over $5 million to spend. “As you can imagine, I am busy finding properties for the underbidders.”last_img read more

Toormore is a National treasure

first_imgToormore took his unblemished record to three with an emphatic all-the-way win in the Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh. Richard Hughes bounced the Richard Hannon-trained colt out of the stalls and set the pace he wanted. The even-money favourite asserted a furlong to win from his main market rival Sudirman, with Giovanni Boldini third. Press Associationcenter_img Tim Palin, racing manager for Middleham Park, said “We weren’t sure whether to make the running or not beforehand but he ended up getting a fairly uncontested lead. He’s a great attitude and the further he goes the better he is. “He’s in the Racing Post Trophy (Doncaster, October 26) but will not run again this season. He’s a very clean-winded horse, and could go straight for the Guineas next year.” Hughes said: “The track is wide open and windy, and it’s difficult for two-year-olds. He’s not a precocious two-year-old by any means and is a big shell of a horse.” last_img read more

Skywatch For The Week Of December 7-14, 2012

first_imgFlo Higgins is an astrologer and can be reached at [email protected] Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You can’t miss a good time now if you just pull things together and listen to your inner self. Take the step you have been talking about and act on it. A good pal could want to come along for the ride, but look back at your history and remember. Then you will make a move alone. There will still be the jolly, outgoing and freedom-loving Sagittarius but there will be times of serious meditation on getting ahead and being in charge, which is often missing in the earlier born Sagittarius. The fun-and-games type will be taken over by the “I want to be in charge” Capricorn. With this combination we will find a wonderful friend and lover who wants to be in charge, but yet will have plenty of fun. So find yourself a Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius born this week and you will have a leader willing to let down the bars once in a while and have a good time. Aries (March 21 to April 20) This week Uranus will be strong in Aries pushing you into either action or boredom. The choice is yours. To use this energy in the most productive way, think of a new project and get it started. You can‘t miss and the alternative is another dull period. The best day this week to get new projects under way or start a new romance or whatever you have the mindset to do would be Thursday, Dec. 13. This is the day of the new moon, the sun and moon will be conjunct in Sagittarius, plus the moon will make a nice aspect to Neptune. People born this week: Ellen Burstyn, Dec. 7, 1932; Nicki Minaj, Dec. 8, 1984; Kirk Douglas, Dec. 9, 1916; Bobby Flay, Dec. 10, 1964; John Kerry, Dec. 11, 1943; Frank Sinatra, Dec. 12, 1915; Taylor Swift, Dec. 13, 1989; and Lee Remick, Dec. 14, 1935. By Flo HigginsHere we have the Sagittarius born on the cusp of Capricorn, which makes for a more serious, determined-to-get-ahead type of personality. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Don’t look back. Keep moving forward and don’t let emotional stories get hold of you and ruin your chances of moving forward both at home and work. The only thing standing in your way now is the lack of organization. The answer would be to get organized. Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The new moon on Thursday offers you a great opportunity to begin a new way of life. So get yourself ready and willing to move on and don’t look around. Just close your eyes, know you will be successful and take control. You will love the new you.Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) With Mercury and Venus in Scorpio be wise and avoid negative romantic encounters right now because they may be more of a challenge then they are worth. Spend time moving yourself into a new routine that will be more demanding, yet rewarding.Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Sometimes we don’t pay attention to lessons we should have learned long ago, and we are forced to repeat. Try paying a little more attention to your own needs and less to others. Once you learn that lesson, you will be much happier with yourself. Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your giving and sharing nature will come to light now and you will find yourself in the middle of a good time. Give some time and energy to the people who need it most. You will be paid back tenfold in the near future.Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) An early Aquarian has Saturn to deal with, which is responsibility. A late one has Neptune, which is confusion. So if you feel some upset now it is normal. Just try moving along and doing good deeds. In that way you win. Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Your jam-packed holiday schedule should also include some alone time. This will give you time to understand yourself and your needs, which you sometimes ignore. A new pal will try and remind you. So make it your responsibility to listen. Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) With Venus about to move into Sagittarius your romantic nature will be looking for a new BFF. With that idea in mind, it might be wise to gear yourself up for some together time. This mean you will have to let some of your single projects go. Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) You may be going against what others feel you should do, but take responsibility and you will be fine. This is a daydreaming time and you are really good at dreaming. So do your share and help others do their share. It will work out well. The usually happy-go-lucky Sagittarius born this week will take on a stern, in-charge persona. Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Be aware. The more you push yourself, the less time you have alone. You need a little time alone to discover what it is you really want to do with your life. Let family ties come first and all else will follow for you happiness.last_img read more

Mellower Green playing this Game 5 after 2016 suspension

first_img“So it’s all things that happen bad aren’t that bad, when you take a step back and look at them. It’s something that I learned from and will stick with me for the rest of my life.”And having a game five at home opens a chance at redemption and securing a crown with his work on the court.“We have a golden opportunity going home on Monday to close this thing out,” Green said. “I’ve won one on the road. I want to see how it feels to win at home. We have to come out with some fire and try it get done.“Thank God I get to play in game five.”Green did get whistled for a technical foul in game four Friday for a flailing arm, what was momentarily thought to be an ejecting offense as a second technical. But the scorer recorded a technical foul on Warriors coach Steve Kerr as on Green so when it was discovered, Green was allowed to stay.ADVERTISEMENT World’s 50 Best Restaurants launches new drinking and dining guide ‘Can’t fool me twice’Such moments bring questions about Green’s mental improvement, ones Green shrugged off earlier in the series.“You act like I’m just this troubled guy who’s been in a bunch of trouble and can’t control myself,” Green said. “I’ve just been playing basketball. And when you’ve got great teammates like I do who allow me to play with my emotions and be emotional when I’m talking to them, to use my emotions to the better for us, it’s easy.“Not worrying about the officials and all that. I think everyone talks to officials. I talk to them. But going over the edge isn’t going to win me a championship. I think I’m a pretty smart guy and I learned my lesson. So I went over the edge before — fool me once, you can’t fool me twice.”Green had 16 points and 14 rebounds in a losing cause in game four, when play became more physcial than it had been in the series.“We’ll bounce back,” Green said. “We never felt like we were out of the game. We continued to push. We were right there. A couple of shots drop, maybe the game turns. We’ll be fine.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Germany routs San Marino to stay perfect in World Cup qualifying WATCH: Firefighters rescue baby seal found in parking garage Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chicken MOST READ CLEVELAND, OH – JUNE 09: Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors gestures to the crowd after a foul in the third quarter against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 9, 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio.

In the caption, he noted how he attempted to put a Wolverines hat on George’s head, but the former tailback “knocked it out” of his hand.

Paks FM Asad Umar steps down

first_imgIslamabad: Pakistan’s Finance Minister Asad Umar, who was involved in extensive discussions with the IMF to finalise a bailout package for the cash-strapped country, quit the Cabinet on Thursday after Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his desire to shift him to the energy ministry. Umar, who recently returned from a trip to the US in which the details of Pakistan’s next International Monetary Fund bailout were finalised, said he has obtained the prime minister’s consent “to not take any cabinet position”.

On Monday, the Pakistani media reported that a major reshuffle was on the cards in the Finance Ministry.

The prime minister has the power to change ministers and the media should play a responsible role on this subject,” he tweeted. Cash-strapped Pakistan is seeking USD 8 billion from the IMF to bail itself out from a severe balance-of-payments crisis that threatens to cripple the country’s economy. Pakistan has so far received a total of USD 9.1 billion in financial aid packages from friendly countries like China, Saudi Arabia and the UAE during the current fiscal year. Finance Minister Umar said earlier this month that a mission of the IMF would visit Islamabad soon after the spring meetings of the World Bank Group, which includes the IMF, and an agreement should be signed by the end of this month.last_img read more
