William Lupfer, preaches during a prayer service celebrating the 250th anniversary of St. Paul’s Chapel. Photo credit: Leah Reddy/Trinity Church Wall Street[Episcopal News Service] Two hundred and fifty years to the day it opened its doors in Lower Manhattan in what was then the countryside, St. Paul’s Chapel celebrated its anniversary with a special worship service and setting off a yearlong celebration.In his sermon, the Rev. William Lupfer, rector of Trinity Wall Street, imagined what the third rector of Trinity Wall Street, the Rev. Samuel Auchmuty, was thinking when he preached the first-ever sermon based on the Burning Bush and seeing God at the opening of St. Paul’s Chapel in 1766.“I’m sure he was imagining in his heart all the work that would be required to see God and that this chapel would become a workshop for ministry, a place to hold the prayers and aspirations of the generations that were to come,” said Lupfer, and since that time. “Imagine the prayers that have been in these walls.“Imagine the prayers that have been in these walls … during war and peace, during flooding during mob violence, during slavery and civil rights. Imagine all the prayers that came here.”From there, 350 people present took a moment to imagine those prayers.For 250 years, St. Paul’s Chapel, part of Trinity Church Wall Street parish in Lower Manhattan, has stood as a symbol of faith, endurance and social good.“St. Paul’s Chapel … has endured and thrived as the symbolic heart of Lower Manhattan, offering a place of solace, worship and community for New York City’s diverse residents,” read Manhattan Borough President Gail Brewer, proclaiming Oct. 30, 2016, “St. Paul’s Appreciation Day.”Brewer and New York City Council member Margaret Chin, both read proclamations honoring St. Paul’s Chapel. Mayor Bill de Blasio, who did not attend, in a proclamation declared Oct. 30, 2016, St. Paul’s Chapel Day in the City of New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand also sent proclamations in honor of St. Paul’s.Trinity Wall Street’s “Chapel of Ease,” as it was called when it opened, catered to the city’s growing population. It is now the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan and the only one to remain in continuous use since Colonial days.Following his inauguration as the first president of the United States, George Washington and his cabinet walked the half-mile from Federal Hall to worship at St. Paul’s Chapel. It withstood the great fire of 1776, which destroyed 500 buildings in a single night, including Trinity Church. And it withstood the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which destroyed the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers less than a block away and killed 2,606 people. Immediately following the attacks on the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s Chapel became a staging area and respite for first responders at ground zero and continued in that ministry about nine months following the attacks. It later served as a memorial, where mourners, tourists and others continued to come over the last 15 years.The historic chapel at Broadway and Fulton streets, recently underwent renovation to restore it to its 18th-century appearance. The interior was painted with 500 gallons of the historically appropriate colors of natural cream, white dove and deep caviar. The crystal chandeliers crafted by artisans more than 200 years ago were cleaned. The original statue of St. Paul carved from tulip poplar, which overlooked Broadway from a niche on the outside of the chapel for more than two centuries, has been conserved and moved indoors to the southeast corner of the sanctuary. (A weather–resistant resin replica stands outside.)Inside, a new exhibit will explore St. Paul’s 250 years and the diverse ministries of the chapel, particularly those of reconciliation and healing.  As part of that telling, a new 9/11 Chapel of Remembrance has been created and will offer visitors a place of reflection with artifacts on display that recall the volunteer ministry the parish hosted to care for Ground Zero’s rescue and recovery workers.Click here more at about St. Paul’s Chapel and see a full schedule of 250th-anniversary events.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Rob Simmons yellow carded for off the ball shoulder on Felipe Contepomi

first_imgTuesday Oct 8, 2013 Rob Simmons yellow carded for off the ball shoulder on Felipe Contepomi Felipe Contepomi played his final Test on Saturday, turning out against the Wallabies for his 87th cap, an Argentina record. Unfortunately things didn’t go exactly to plan in front of his home crowd as his team took a heavy defeat, and he was on the receiving end of a big shoulder.Wallaby Rob Simmons was yellow carded after he took Contepomi out of the ball with a no-arms tackle. In Simmons’ defence he seemed to lean into the contact after commiting to his man, but the lack of an attempt to wrap, and following through with the shot, made it look pretty bad.Contepomi was shaken, but continued on before receiving a warm reception when he was substituted later in the game. He will work in his father’s doctor’s practice upon retirement.View highlights of the Pumas vs the WallabiesADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , The Rugby Championship Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Heritage Lottery Fund has launched a £1.5 million funding programme aimed at supporting heritage and cultural organisations to take partnership approaches to place-based regeneration in Wales.The Great Place Scheme, which is already active in England and Scotland, is funded by the National Lottery and promotes the use of culture and heritage in improving areas in Wales.Through grants of £100,000 to £500,000, the Scheme will support heritage and cultural organisations in making a step-change in how they work both together, and with organisations in other sectors. The grants are available for partnership projects that tackle issues such as poverty, inequality, employment, education, and health, from town and city-wide initiatives to smaller, rural proposals. Between five and eight projects will be funded across Wales.The activities could range from using arts and heritage in the provision of local education and health services, to increasing people’s skills, and the development of local strategies to maximise community benefit through cultural events.Kay Andrews, UK trustee and chair of HLF in Wales, said:“An area’s culture is important not just for its own sake; this scheme will show how it can also boost jobs and local economies, improve education and life chances and promote community cohesion and well-being.“Using National Lottery players’ money we are promoting a step-change in thinking and it is a natural progression from some initiatives already in place such as the Welsh Government’s Fusion programme and the Arts Council’s Ideas, People, Places programme. We look forward to hearing how communities across Wales want to use their own heritage to shape an exciting future for everyone who lives there.”Applications will need to be led by a not-for-profit organisation and projects must demonstrate a contribution to growth in the local economy. Expressions of interest should be submitted by mid August 2017 with final applications submitted by December 2017. Funding decisions will be made in March 2018.

Dissident octogenarian writer Tie Liu arrested for “provoking trouble”

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further September 18, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Dissident octogenarian writer Tie Liu arrested for “provoking trouble” June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News Police carried out a dawn raid on the home of 81-year-old dissident writer Tie Liu three days ago and took him and his assistant Huang Jing into custody. Reporters Without Borders demands their immediate release. “This arrest shows how far the Peking government is prepared to go to muzzle critical voices,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia desk. “We add our voice to that of the international community in condemning the arrest of Tie Liu. We urge the Chinese authorities to release both him and Huang Jing immediately.” At the age of 81, Tie is one of the oldest dissidents in China. Branded a “rightist” for rebelling against Mao Zedong and the Communist Party, he spent more than 20 years in a re-education camp. However, he has continued to write essays and pamphlets criticizing the Chinese government.According to his wife and his lawyer, he believed he was unlikely to be arrested again given his age. However, his family reported that he recently received threats and warnings, such as the poisoning of his dog the day before he was arrested. The charge of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” is used regularly by the Chinese authorities to detain political dissidents. At least 30 journalists and 72 netizens are currently in prison in the country.China is ranked 175th of 180 countries in the 2014 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.

No reason was given for the arrest of Huang Jing, who is also Tie’s care worker and occasionally helps him publish his writings. The police also seized his computers and some of his books. His arrest was believed to be the result of an essay he published recently on the former head of the government’s propaganda department, Liu Yunshan, and the restrictions imposed on the media while he was running the main censorship organ of the Chinese Communist Party’s repressive machinery. Tie was placed in criminal detention, which allows the authorities to hold him for at least 30 days.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Business News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy A lawyer for Fuller Seminary said that a lawsuit filed by two students kicked out of the school because they are involved in same-sex marriages is about religious freedoms without government interference.In a federal lawsuit Joanna Maxon and Nathan Brittsan claim their civil rights were violated and they suffered emotional distress when they were expelled from the school. They are asking for $2 million.“Fuller trains students to be Christian leaders,” said Daniel Blomberg, senior counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.“This case is about whether religious groups get to decide how to train their religious leaders, free from government entanglement.”Maxon was kicked out of the seminary in 2019 in a letter from defendant Director Nicole Boymook, for violation of the Sexual Standards component of the Fuller’s Community Standards. Brittsan was expelled in September 2017 on the basis of a violation of sexual standards of Fuller’s Community Standards. He was added to the lawsuit earlier this week.According to the college’s website, “Fuller Theological Seminary believes that sexual union must be reserved for marriage, which is the covenant union between one man and one woman, and that sexual abstinence is required for the unmarried.”When asked if any other LGBTQ students were kicked out of the seminary or any heterosexual students were removed for having sex before marriage, which Christians say the bible also identifies as sin, Blomberg would not answer.“Fuller Theological does not generally publish that sort of sensitive information,” Blomberg said.However, Maxon and Brittsan’s attorney Paul Southwick said that a student accused of have a heterosexual extramarital affair was allowed to remain in the seminary.At the time Maxon enrolled in 2015 she was married to a man and agreed to follow the college’s code of conduct, including those regarding sexual standards.But sometime before she began her first class, her marriage ended and Maxon began dating a woman.She married her wife after the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in 2016. She authorized the release of her tax returns during a review of her financial aid.During that review, college officials discovered she was married to a woman and she was expelled from the college.Brittsan applied in 2017. He and his husband were married in 2016. He informed Fuller that his church was focused on social justice with an emphasis on homeless ministry and issues of class, race and equality. He was expelled after he filed paperwork with the seminary to change his name from Henning to Brittsan in his student file.According to the document, in the course of the process officials with the seminary learned that he requested the name change due to his marriage. School officials did not inform him how they learned about his marriage.Maxon and Brittsan received federal assistance to attend the seminary. Title IX prohibits gender identity discrimination at institutions that accept federal aid.The lawsuit claims Title IX violations.The law was passed as a followup to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to end discrimination in various fields based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in the areas of employment and public accommodation.The law was passed because the Civil Rights Act did not prohibit sex discrimination against persons employed at educational institutions. A parallel law, Title VI, was enacted in 1964 to prohibit discrimination in federally funded private and public entities. It covered race, color and national origin but excluded sex.According to the Office for Civil Rights, religious institutions are entitled to exemptions from Title IX nondiscrimination rules if the school is connected to a church.In April, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear three cases centered on the question of whether Title IX applies to sexual orientation and gender identity, neither of which are explicitly mentioned in the law.“In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the First Amendment commits these kinds of issues to religious groups to decide, not the courts,” said Blomberg. “A healthy separation of church and state allows us to consider these matters for our religious community within our religious community.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimeslast_img read more
