Gay Clark Jennings and Moravian leaders, in addition to music and prayers from members of both denominations.“Our relationship as Moravians and Episcopalians could be looked at as just a nice church thing, but it is more than that,” Curry said in his sermon. “It is a sign. It is a witness. It is a yearning for what God yearns, not simply for the church but for the entire human family.”The 10th anniversary celebration, which was streamed on YouTube, showcased the traditions of both denominations and celebrated the churches’ common efforts, including joint antiracism work guided by the Sacred Ground curriculum and by Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, in the Diocese of Atlanta.“I have learned so much from our Episcopal siblings about courageous witness in the public square, which has emboldened our witness as Moravians,” the Rev. Betsy Miller, president of the Moravian Church Northern Province, told Episcopal News Service, adding that communion is not a static agreement but a learning process. “Living into full communion is something that is never fully achieved, but remains a journey of discovery, renewal and enrichment,” she said.The celebratory tone of the evening was tempered by the pandemic and by humble acknowledgments of racism, including a litany of repentance and renewed mission.“As we celebrate tonight, we also acknowledge that we are in need of healing, not only from the pandemic, but even more from the racism that has characterized our country and our churches for far too long,” said the Rev. Maria Tjeltveit, who represents The Episcopal Church as co-chair of the Moravian-Episcopal Coordinating Committee. “Therefore, our service includes a call to racial reconciliation with repentance and a commissioning, so that in full communion with one another, we can work together to build Christ’s kingdom, where all are welcomed and valued.”In her remarks, Jennings said unity and collaboration are even more urgent now than they were 10 years ago, and are necessary if the work of antiracism is to succeed.“In 2011, when the Moravian Church and The Episcopal Church entered into full communion, we celebrated the reconciliation between our denominations. Today, a decade later, God is calling us to heal a different, more difficult division,” Jennings said. “As followers of Jesus in historically white denominations, we must redouble our commitment to work toward racial reconciliation by atoning for our participation in systemic racism and advocating for racial justice. We have much to offer one another on this journey to beloved community.”The Moravians are one of seven denominations in full communion with The Episcopal Church, the most recent being the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, which established communion in 2019. The Episcopal Church defines full communion as an agreement with a church outside the Anglican Communion “in which each recognizes the other as a catholic and apostolic church holding the essentials of the Christian faith. Within this new relation, churches become interdependent while remaining autonomous. … They are together committed to a visible unity in the church’s mission to proclaim the Word and administer the sacraments.”The principles of full communion are expressed in the Moravian motto: “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things love.” Churches in full communion do not need to agree on every doctrinal point, but are understood to have enough in common to worship together, Tjeltveit said.“When we talk about full communion, we’re not talking about a merger,” she told ENS. “To be in full communion with people who think differently than we do and operate differently is a really wonderful gift.”In practice, this means that members of both denominations can participate in the same sacraments, and clergy of one denomination can serve a congregation of the other denomination, which has happened in a few parishes so far. One church — St. Mark’s in Downey, California – is a combined parish “worshiping in the Episcopal and Moravian traditions.”The Moravians are one of the oldest Protestant denominations, originating in the present-day Czech Republic in the 15th century, pre-dating Lutheranism and Anglicanism. They have historically emphasized living by Jesus’ example over doctrine and were heavily persecuted in the 16th century. They came to America during the colonial period. Today, the Moravian Church in North America counts 140 congregations in the United States and Canada, mostly in the areas around Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina – the headquarters of its Northern and Southern provinces, respectively.In 1997, General Convention established an official Episcopal-Moravian dialogue with the Northern Province and the Southern Province, which continued into the 2000s. In 2009, General Convention approved “Finding Our Delight in the Lord,” a proposal for full communion between the two churches. The Moravian Church approved the proposal in 2010 at its provincial synods, and a celebration of full communion was held in February 2011, attended by leaders from both denominations, including the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Curry’s predecessor.In his sermon, Curry preached on the transformation of suffering into glory in John’s Gospel, pointing to it as an example of how Christians can overcome hateful divisions to achieve beloved community. Relationships like the communion between Moravians and Episcopalians, he said, are a sign to the world that unity is possible.“Our relationship is a sign of that, of who we are and who God meant us to be,” he said. “May our relationship be a witness, a witness to the world beyond the chaos to community, beyond the nightmare to the dream of God.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Where the goals for 2018 build off the major emphases for 2017, Lynx was sure to highlight the following during the presentation: Enhance communications; improve service efficiency; establish more partnerships; improve customer confidence in the Lynx system; and increase brand recognition and community involvement.To achieve its goal for enhancing communications, Lynx did the following: Conducted semi-annual briefings for funding partners; provided updates to community stakeholders and local governments; proposed significant public engagement opportunities for Lynx Forward; instituted employee town hall meetings; and improved media engagement. As part of its initiative to improve media engagement, Lynx appeared on the Central Florida Spotlight with Greg Warmoth and participated in various radio and print interviews. In addition, Lynx also took part in panel discussions: The Orlando Business Journal (OBJ) Business of Transportation Panel; OBJ Business of Technology Panel; and the Orlando Economic Partnership Transportation Summit.To help make Lynx more efficient, it avoided $1.7 million of paratransit contractor costs through negotiations and implemented the Mobility Management Service Model. The Mobility Management Service Model is providing changes to the Lynx call center by combining fixed route and paratransit for cross-training opportunities. Additionally, the Model has added private providers to the paratransit system. Furthermore, the Model has offered potential savings of $2 million for Fiscal Year 2018.Another strategy Lynx had utilized to become more efficient was improve its administration by rebuilding its leadership team. In addition, on the administrative side, pharmacy rebates were increased for the future ($400,000), and by eliminating the broker fee, Lynx saved $160K in costs for healthcare. Lastly, Lynx maintained a 3.5% increase in funding partners without raising passenger fares.Lynx also improved its efficiencies through Lynx Forward, by establishing continuous route improvements and starting a Lynx Operations Center (LOC) expansion design to consolidate operations and save on expenses. To initiate the LOC expansion, Lynx purchased remaining NoPetro property with the purpose of eventually eliminating a $250K annual lease.Lynx further improved its efficiencies through cost methods by doing the following: Avoiding an $8 million expenditure for Intelligent Transportation System equipment; establishing a bus mirror rebuild station offering savings of $510 per mirror (new mirrors cost $660 each); saving $500K annually by changing contracts for tire leasing; and modifying its investment strategy to increase income by $200K for Fiscal Year 2017 (anticipating $400K in Fiscal Year 2018).Lynx has created partnerships with the following organizations: Valencia College; University of Central Florida (UCF); Seminole State College; Orlando City Soccer; CareerSource; the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness; City of Orlando; MetroPlan Orlando; Orlando Economic Partnership; Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC); Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA); and the Victim Service Center. By collaborating with Valencia College, Lynx had accumulated $70K in annual revenue. Through its partnership with UCF, Lynx had not only generated $220K in annual revenue but promoted UCF’s new downtown campus (opening Fall 2019) by putting wraps on its buses. Similarly, Orlando City Soccer utilized bus wraps to market transportation for the stadium’s grand opening, as did the Orlando Economic Partnership, whose wraps said “Orlando. You don’t know the half of it.” CareerSource offered a significant advantage to Lynx through its partnership by assisting with job placement for bus operators and technicians. In addition, the Victim Service Center participated in “Denim Day” and training for bus operators. At the local government level, Lynx established partnerships with the City of Orlando as well as MetroPlan Orlando to discuss the concept of the autonomous vehicle of operations with the City and MetroPlan. Additionally, in the preparation and aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Lynx’s partnerships with OUC and GOAA played crucial roles in helping Orange County residents. Lynx made 2,831 trips transporting lineman with OUC responding to incident reports caused by Irma. For the SunRail Train to Plane program, GOAA offered fuel to help residents evacuate during the hurricane. Furthermore, as part of its initiative to establish more partnerships, Lynx hosted OBJ CEO Roundtables as well as peer transit agencies with asset transfers.In improving customer confidence in the Lynx system for 2017, Lynx put Wi-Fi on fixed route buses and created the Lynx Bus Tracker, Paw Pass Mobile Fare Payment (including a revised procurement method saving $6 million), and the NeighborLink Reservation See and Say Security App mobile applications. Lynx was selected for the OBJ Innovations in Technology Award.To increase brand recognition and community involvement, Lynx encouraged participation from the Executive Team Community Board, preparation for emergency response (i.e. SunRail bus bridges), and offered special shuttles for transit to the Pulse Memorial.Additional areas for major emphasis for 2017 included the following: Institute a safety awards program for vehicle operators; negotiate the ATU 1596 and 1749 Union contracts; offer Safety and Courtesy training for all employees; offer de-escalation training for bus operators, and institute a Department of the Year Award.Lynx’s major areas of focus for 2018 include the following: Continue with the 2017 major emphasis areas; establish a CyberSecurity Program and oversight position; create an Innovation and Sustainability Program; develop an Autonomous Vehicle Program Strategic Plan; establish Central Florida transit vision (high level); seek funding for Vision 2030 Corridors; purchase off-board payment systems for key areas; and host a board retreat. Additional areas for concentration include facilities, establishing a research and analysis section, economic impact analysis, and vehicle procurements.For Fiscal Year 2018, Lynx’s operating budget has been set at $133,483,544 (an increase of $733,846 or .6% from the Fiscal Year 2017 Amended Operating Budget); 49% of this funding is provided by its 4 local funding partners: Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties; and the City of Orlando. In addition, according to the December 2017 Board Report, the total system-wide ridership through September 2017 was 1,943,393, representing a 14.27% decrease over the previous year up to September 2016.

Criminal justice reform coalition takes case to lawmakers

first_img Across our nation there are private prisons…..I heard the stock went sky high for the private prisons when Trump was elected. Is it fake news or not, I don’t know?….. Are there private prisons being ran in Florida, or are they publicly operated only? Trump must have a plan in mind to keep the states prisons from filling up, somewhat to a small degree, because he wants people who are protesting, or what he calls rioting, to be charged as terrorists, and have serious felony convictions, and be housed at Gitmo……!!!! and we have heard what they do to those people in there! He wants to water board them, and torture them in worse ways….and I am talking about the American citizens!!!…..such a nice man! It is appalling, and also appalling is the fact that Florida population has tripled since 1970, but the Florida prison population has increased 1000% since that time…. OMG!!! How awful is that?

He’s also been cited and reposted by numerous state news organizations, including Florida Trend, Sunshine State News and the Miami Herald, and is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors and the Florida Press Association. Focus on FloridaBy William Patrick  of Watchdog.org While Florida’s population has tripled since 1970, the state’s prison population has grown by 1,000 percent. A new coalition of groups is lobbying the legislature to do something about that discrepancy.The Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform launched on Monday, one day ahead of the state’s annual legislative session. In a statement, the group said it’s focusing on rolling back decades of failed “tough-on-crime” policies that have contributed to the explosion in the number of inmates.“Large prison populations are not an appropriate barometer for effective criminal justice,” said Christian Camara, Southeast regional director of the Washington, D.C.-based R Street Institute, a coalition member.“Instead, they are oftentimes a symptom of a broken system that imposes a huge burden on taxpayers.  Florida should focus on reducing recidivism by prioritizing criminal justice spending to help rehabilitate and restore offenders’ lives while reserving tough penalties against violent criminals,” Camara said.Florida’s state prison system houses nearly 100,000 inmates at a cost of $2.3 billion annually.Photo by: ShutterstockREFORM: A coalition of groups known as the Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform is launching an effort to lobby state lawmakers to approve about a dozen reform bills during Florida’s 60-day legislative session.About one out of every 104 Floridians is behind bars when including local jail populations, and one out of 54 residents is under some kind of supervision by the criminal justice system, the campaign says.“Florida’s antiquated laws put too many people behind bars for too long,” said Scott McCoy, senior policy counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center.Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, noted that criminal justice reform increasingly has become an area of bipartisan agreement.“Legislators should take notice when public interest organizations representing an extraordinarily broad ideological spectrum come together to urge long-overdue reforms in our criminal justice system,” Simon said.Simon singled out Florida’s use of mandatory minimum laws as a policy ripe for change.“Our state’s habit of imposing mandatory minimum sentences has loaded up our prisons in a way that threatens the safety of inmates as well as correction officers,” he said.The coalition is pushing a number of bills, many of which have been filed by Republicans – a good sign since the GOP dominates the Florida Legislature. The bills include:— Criminal Justice Task Force: The proposal would create a diverse group of public officials and stakeholders for the purpose of developing recommendations to overhaul the entire criminal justice system.— Direct File: Florida puts more juveniles into adult prisons than any other state in the country. A bill that would reduce the number of minors directly filed into adult courts will be considered by state lawmakers during the session, but has been met with early opposition.— Juvenile Civil Citations: Legislators will debate a measure to expand pre-arrest, youth diversion programs for those younger than 18 who commit common non-violent crimes, such as trespassing, and have no criminal history. Youth civil citations are not applied evenly throughout the state, even though studies have shown they lead to more favorable long-term outcomes than arrests.— Adult Civil Citations: Law enforcement officers could be given the discretion to issue civil citations to adults who commit non-violent, low-level misdemeanors rather than arresting them.— Elderly Release: Known as compassion release, older, sicker and non-threatening inmates over age 65 soon could participate in conditional early release programs.— Sentencing and Offense Parameters: Several bills could change how certain property crimes, driving-related offenses and possession of controlled substances violations would be charged. Another measure would allow judges to depart from mandatory minimum sentencing laws for certain non-violent crimes and drug possession offenses.Composed of more than a dozen organizations, the Florida Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform also has launched a public education website offering more information about its legislative priorities.Campaign members, faith leaders, criminal justice experts, formerly incarcerated persons and law enforcement experts are scheduled to visit the Florida Capitol on Thursday to lobby lawmakers.

Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage

first_imgFriday Sep 24, 2010 Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage Unfortunately there hasn’t been time for Magners League or Aviva Premiership highlights this week but hopefully tomorrow I’ll get some time to post something. It is Friday though, so time for a laugh with the latest Friday Funnies clip. This one comes from Southland’s meeting with Waikato in the ITM Cup in New Zealand, a match that was low scoring but resulted in Southland continuing their winning run in the tournament. You can view highlights of the match here, in yesterdays post. This particular moment was picked up by a forum member who watched the game live and took the time to send in the request. If he’d not done that, classic moments like this would be missed so please try do the same when you see something happen that you think would be good to share. There’s been a lot of debate lately about the way refs are handling the scrum engagement, with refs down south in New Zealand and South Africa deliberately taking ages to do the call, while up North it’s more regulation and what we’re used to. There are critics of both, as some say the old way isn’t steady enough, while others don’t like the slow, delayed calls down South. What the delay did produce however was Southland prop Chris King doing something you won’t often see at scrumtime. Somehow the ref spotted it though, penalising him and allowing Waikato to snatch three points in a tight game. We can’t condone it, but it was hilarious to watch. Have a great weekend, and keep your hands to yourself.

The four members’ family residence is situated in the city of Nicosia on a low hill. The sloping plot provides unobstructed view to the Pentadaktilos mountain to the north and overlooks the east side of the city. The building is deployed on three levels in order to better adapt to the sloping plot on the one hand and to facilitate the functional structure of the residence on the other. All the secondary/utility rooms and the parking spaces are located on the lower level; the living space and the kitchen are on the middle floor, which is leveled to the entrance of the building, whereas all the bedrooms and a multi-use office room are situated on the upper floor. Save this picture!Courtesy of polytia armosRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareCeramiche KeopeCeramic Tiles – BackPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamPorcelain StonewareCosentinoSurfaces – Dekton® Chromica CollectionPorcelain StonewareApavisaFloor Tiles – RegenerationThe layout of the plan is divided in three main zones, all parallel to the slope, on the east-west axis. The south zone is found only on the upper floor and it hosts the children’s bedrooms while its volume covers the main entrance. The main living room and the dining space are located in the intermediate zone which is vertically extended to the roof from where abundant sun light enters through a skylight. The kitchen and an integrated secondary living room are found in the north zone. Furthermore, a semi-outdoor lounge space overlooking the pool area with view to the mountain is situated in the north zone. The decision to “turn” the house towards the north, for better adjustment to the sloping plot and to take full advantage of the views, determined the final layout of the building which is oriented with its backside on the north entrance. Save this picture!Courtesy of polytia armosOne is pleasantly surprised when entering the residence. A huge transparent surface, similar to a cinema projection screen, “brings” all the view of the external environment in the house opening the residence to the outside. In this way the transition from the outside to the inside of the house drastically changes the appearance of the exterior of the building and the domination of walls which function as vertical screens. As one enters and approaches the windows on the north side the view is gradually revealed. At the same time the vertical connection between the second and third level is also revealed, whereas the view of the sky -through the roof and the internal windows of the bedrooms– gives the illusion of an urban street with two storey buildings. Save this picture!Courtesy of polytia armosThe entrance of the composition, with its high ceiling is an architectural element with multiple uses. It is of central importance to the composition as it gives brightness to the bedrooms allowing them to be an integral part of the residence, and it connects both visually and functionally the whole residence. Apart from the furniture, in the main living room there is a large file place on the east side and the semi-circular staircase located centrally. Due to the intense and prolonged summer in Cyprus the use of abundant sun light entering from the north and the dispersion of light flowing in the house from the roof creates a nice ambiance. Through these elements the temperature and the intensity of the sun light are properly controlled. Save this picture!Courtesy of polytia armosOn the outside the mass of the building expresses the threefold composition of the layout. The openings on the south facade are limited in number whereas on the north side they are more and larger. The use of Cyprus stones on the south façade, in contrast to the rest surfaces made from exposed concrete and from plain plaster, renders the “screen” concept of the composition through the use of vertical walls.Project gallerySee allShow lessStephen H Kanner Exhibit / Architecture + Design MuseumArticlesMuseum of Modern Art / Metro Arquitetos Associados + Paulo Mendes da RochaArticles Sharecenter_img “COPY” CopyHouses•Paphos, Cyprus Residence in Nicosia / Polytia ArmosSave this projectSaveResidence in Nicosia / Polytia Armos Projects Houses “COPY”last_img read more
