In England the Church of England can seize buidings and lands of parishes at will, but in America the Courts should have supported the individual parish since the building and lands were purchased from their monies as a tithe to the Lord to Worship there. There is no theocracy expressed in America’s Law.If a National Church practices actions that are opposite that decreed by God, what can a parish church do? Clearly the most staunt supporter of gay and lesbian rights understands the Church is a place of Holiness not of ceremony or reception. You cannot have gay clergy.Did not our Lord make it by His own Body and Blood? The National Church is wrong. It is an embarassment to the Supreme Court of America that they did not defend the Holiness of the Church of Jesus Christ and support the parish that way. It would have rejoiced all.But I guess this is a divine comedy meaning from the Leader down to the Church, everyone says they are right when God says they are wrong and eveyone thinks God is wrong when His own Son lived to prove God is right. I can laugh , but I laugh with the Lord for truly man’s wisdom is foolishness to God even this day. A new word I coin “adoreaphobia,” the fear of loving a Holy God. Why fear God? He loves you and wants you in the Kingdom of Heaven with Him.I can see how the Court would agree with the National Church because it does not understand the Holiness of Worship, that clergy come from Jesus Christ and not the world even the most friendly world and that coming from God’s Son they are to live reflecting Him.

Dunning today reaffirmed her May 1 final orders that property occupied by St. James Church, Newport Beach, is held in trust for the current and future ministry of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the wider Episcopal Church.“All the church property acquired by and held in the name of St. James Parish is held in trust for the Episcopal Church and the diocese, which have the exclusive right to possession and dominion and control,” Judge Dunning ordered. “The diocese is entitled to enforce the trust in its favor and eject the current occupants.”This is the fourth and final case involving congregations in which a majority of members, having voted to disaffiliate from the Diocese of Los Angeles and the Episcopal Church, sought to retain church property for themselves. In each instance, however, courts have ruled that the property rightfully belongs to the diocese and Episcopal Church.“I give thanks for the culmination of this marathon litigation, and I pray this action will settle the fact that people can disagree but cannot take property that has been entrusted to the Episcopal Church for ministry,” said Bishop J. Jon Bruno, of the six-county Diocese of Los Angeles, who was present in the courtroom this morning. “I feel blessed that Judge Dunning followed the direction of the California State Supreme Court and appellate courts and did a masterful job of interpreting all the briefs. I give thanks to God that, after these cases spanning more than eight years, we now can proceed with the continuing ministry of the Episcopal Church in Newport Beach.”“I am very pleased with the court’s ruling,” said John R. Shiner, lead counsel for the diocese. “Judge Dunning’s meticulous analysis is entirely consistent with the guidelines established by the California Supreme Court and other appellate courts  throughout the State. The reality of this lengthy litigation will have continuing significance within the Episcopal Church community throughout the United States.”Last year Judge Dunning issued similar orders declaring the disputed properties in Long Beach and North Hollywood rightfully belong to the Diocese of Los Angeles. Earlier, courts in 2010 also concluded that Episcopal Church property in La Crescenta, California, be returned to the diocese.center_img Rector Bath, NC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Property Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET July 3, 2015 at 11:04 am I give thanks to God that, after these cases spanning more than eight years, we now can proceed with the continuing ministry of the Episcopal Church in Newport Beach. — Bp.

Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Martinsville, VA May 21, 2013 at 12:21 am I was baptised and raised in All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Long Beach, CA, Diocese of Los Angeles. Growing up there, I was a teachers’ aide in Sunday School, and a loyal member of the Choir. Fr. Carroll was my godfather. I was married there in 1985.In 1979, I moved out of state for what turned out to be 14 years of college, graduate school, medical school, and residency. During that time, things back home drastically changed. Suddenly, and without warning, I found out that the parish in which I was baptized and raised, no longer belonged to the Episcopal Church. When I traveled back to Long Beach by car, I drove past the site on 346 Termino Avenue, and found the once familiar sign out front changed to “Anglican” instead of “Episcopal”. The whole place was surrounded by an iron fence, higher than 6 feet tall, and the entire place was deserted. It was as if I was standing at the grave of a beloved friend, long dead. I recall that when I was a young member, the place was constantly bustling with activity, with people rejoicing together in service of God and the Church.My sense of loss was and is profound. I cannot describe how terrible is/was this feeling of not belonging, but it has affected me strongly, and I have not yet since been able to be comfortable in any one parish. On Sundays, as in other days of the week, I honor God privately in prayer and in contemplation, but this is a poor substitute for belonging to a group of live individuals who represent the Body of Christ.The rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church convinced enough of his congregation that it was somehow “wrong” to elect a Gay bishop. He used this “grievance” to divide the body of Christ in his parish at Long Beach. He left me without a church home. There must be others who feel a similar sense of loss. All I can say, is that the actions of the rector and the congregation are based upon fear and ignorance. Nowhere in the Gospel does it say that Gays should not be accepted and loved as members of the Body of Christ. Jesus dipped his hand in the bowl with Judas at the Last Supper. He beseeched God to forgive those who tortured and murdered Him, “for they know not what they do”. He forgave Peter for denying Him three times. He assured the condemned thief, crucified next to Him that “truly, this day you will be with Me in paradise”. He was friends with Samaritans, tax collectors, women of ill-repute, lepers, and those possessed by demons. And yet, my home parish seceded from the Mother Church for a reason which, by comparison, is too trivial to comprehend — because the rector and his subset of followers could not comprehend that the Church could ever trust or find value in anything an upstanding, righteous, Gay Child of God would have to say to God’s people? I am not mentioning any names here, but I would like to say to the former leader of my youth group, the former curate in whom I trusted, to the man in whom I am so disappointed now, “Father, you know who you are, and you can see yourself in the narrative above. Can you not comprehend the hurt you have inflicted upon the Body of Christ? Are you so blinded by your fear and hatred of those different from you that you can neither accept them, nor those of us who cherish them as brothers and sisters in Christ? Can you not understand the grave injury which you have done to those of us who are now invisible to you because we have hidden our faces in shame for what you have done? I am so disappointed, and disillusioned by the example you have set. Please remedy this situation. I have nothing further to say.

Craig Loya, who has been canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of Kansas since 2009 and served as a campus missioner for the diocese before that, has accepted a call to become dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Omaha, Neb., beginning Sept. 29. His last day on the Kansas staff will be Aug. 27.In making the announcement Kansas Bishop Dean E. Wolfe said, “When you call people of great promise and excellence, we give thanks that they can be of service to the wider church. It is heartbreaking to let go of such a good colleague and friend, and yet we are thrilled for Craig, Melissa and Mari and believe they will exercise the same kind of outstanding ministry in Nebraska that they have here in Kansas. The move to Nebraska takes them closer to family and brings them back home.” Loya and his wife, Melissa Tubbs Loya, are natives of Nebraska.In reflecting on his time in Kansas Loya said, “The years I have spent on the diocesan staff have been filled with grace and joy. I was a relatively new priest when I arrived in the diocese, and the shape of my priesthood has been largely forged by the joys, sorrows, blessings, challenges and just plain hard work that we have embraced together.”The bishop praised the work Loya has done in the two positions he has held in the diocese. “Six and a half years ago when Craig came to fill the first Campus Missioner position that had been created as an innovative and creative approach to diocesanwide campus ministry, we knew he was a person of extraordinary gifts. He, along with the Rev. Susan Terry, put into place a dynamic model for campus ministry that now is being utilized in other parts of the church. His unswerving dedication and faithfulness helped him to excel in this ministry. Because of his outstanding service as Campus Missioner, he was appointed as Canon to the Ordinary early in his ministry. Not surprisingly, he worked very hard to master one of the most difficult positions in the Episcopal Church. Almost every parish and every priest in the diocese has benefitted from his good counsel and pastoral care during clergy transitions.”Loya also serves as co-chair of the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church and was a deputy to General Convention in 2012.

first_imgHSE unveils its pilot of draft stress management standardsOn 1 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article More than 20 public and private sector employers will test the standardsThe Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has begun a six-month trial of newstress management standards, which are due to be introduced across the countrynext year. Elizabeth Gyngell, the HSE’s head of health strategy, unveiled the draftstandards in April, warning that firms that breached the rules could beprosecuted under the Health and Safety at Work Act. Some 20 public and private sector employers have agreed to test thestandards, which are based on seven causes of stress as outlined in the HSE’sguidance, Tackling Work-Related Stress. The seven ‘stressors’ covered are:demands on staff, control, support, relationships, roles, change and culture. Gyngell told Occupational Health’s sister title Personnel Today that to meetthe standards, employers will have to survey their staff to measure how theyfeel they are affected by these seven areas, and then provide feedback. Organisations will be expected to reach certain levels in each area; forinstance, ensuring that under ‘demands’, workloads are manageable and jobsmatched to ability. Firms must also have systems in place that allow them torespond to staff who report feeling stressed. Employers must talk in detail to staff about any issues highlighted by thesurvey and agree action – including, if necessary, changing policies or ways ofmanagement, and then reviewing the effectiveness of the action that is taken. Once the pilot has finished, a discussion document will be published inJanuary, followed by a formal consultation period. The standards are expected to become a key tool in the HSE’s campaign totackle work-related stress. More than half a million people in the UK are estimated to suffer fromwork-related stress, anxiety or depression, according to HSE figures, leadingto the loss of 13.5 million working days. The draft standards were published on the HSE’s website in May, andemployers are being encouraged to provide feedback through the site. www.hse.gov.uklast_img read more


first_imgWe examine the sensitivity of the modelled climate of the third generation Hadley Centre climate model to changes in the parametrization of surface and boundary-layer fluxes under stable stratification. Replacing the model’s standard parametrization with one in which fluxes decrease more rapidly with increasing stability generates statistically-significant changes in modelled 500 hPa height. The largest changes are seen across the North Atlantic and North Pacific and occur during Northern Hemisphere summer, when persistent stable atmospheric boundary layers form over the western sides of these oceans. The atmospheric response in a coupled version of the model is stronger than in the atmosphere-only version, suggesting that feedbacks involving sea surface temperatures, surface fluxes and atmospheric circulation are important in determining the response.last_img read more
