Most people of their own age strongly shared the general feeling of dismay at this behaviour.I’ve come to visit the charity Kids’ Company in London where today a lot of young people are joining together to pack food parcels for needy families in the neighbourhood. When you have a chance of talking to young people like this you really get a sense of how they feel about the society they’re in and the challenges they face:We have to ask, what kind of society is it that lets down so many of its young people? That doesn’t provide enough good role models and drives youngsters further into unhappiness and anxiety by only showing them suspicion and negativity. When you see the gifts they can offer, the energy that can be released when they feel safe and loved, you see what a tragedy we so often allow to happen.  Look at the work done by groups like the Children’s Society or by the astonishing network of Kids’ Company here in London, and you see what can be done to wake up that energy and let it flourish for everyone’s good.One of the unique things in the Christian faith, one of its great contributions to our moral vision, is the way it has spoken about children and young people.  Whether it’s Jesus blessing children, or St Paul encouraging a young church leader, saying, ‘Don’t let people look down on you because you’re young’, or St Benedict in his rule for monks saying that you need to pay attention to the youngest as well as the oldest – Christian faith has underlined the essential importance of giving young people the respect they deserve.Of course they’re not infallible; of course they have a lot to learn.  So do we all.  But being grown-up doesn’t mean forgetting about the young.  And a good New Year’s Resolution might be to think what you can do locally to support facilities for young people, to support opportunities for counselling and learning and enjoyment in a safe environment.  And above all, perhaps we should just be asking how we make friends with our younger fellow citizens – for the sake of our happiness as well as theirs. A very happy and blessed New Year to you all.

Los obispos sopesan una respuesta a la decisión de Lambeth…

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte] La Cámara de Obispos dedicó tiempo el 14 de marzo, tanto en su sesión de apertura como de clausura, a considerar cómo responder a la decisión de excluir a los cónyuges del mismo sexo de la Conferencia de Lambeth 2020.“No estamos evadiéndolo. Estamos siendo piadosos, reflexivos y estratégicos respecto a cuál ha de ser la decisión amorosa para nosotros”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry a Episcopal News Service luego de terminada la sesión de clausura. “Nosotros, como cámara, estamos ahora pensando y sopesando cuáles son las posibilidades creativas y las vías amorosas en que podemos dar testimonio del Camino del Amor con el que estamos comprometidos como la manera de seguir a Jesús”.Mary Glasspool, la obispa auxiliar de la Diócesis de Nueva York se dirigió a la Cámara en sesión abierta al comienzo de la jornada, teniendo a su lado a los obispos Andrew Dietsche y Allen Shin, titular y sufragáneo respectivamente de la Diócesis de Nueva York. Ella es la única obispo en servicio activo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tiene un cónyuge del mismo sexo. Glasspool pidió el apoyo continuo de sus colegas, al tiempo que les instaba a que escuchar a sus cónyuges y que consideraran lo que significará “si no estuviéramos en la mesa para dar testimonio” del amor de Cristo que “vive y da frutos en las vidas de personas LGBT casadas”.Antes de la clausura de la Cámara, el obispo Curry pidió a los obispos que asumieran “la visión a que Mary [Glasspool] nos ha invitado” con dos preguntas que ella acababa de plantearles: ¿Cómo continuar  siendo una “cámara hospitalaria” que reciba a nuevos obispos con cónyuges del mismo sexo? Y, ¿cuál es la manera mejor y más creativa de dar testimonio del amor y la justicia de Dios en Lambeth?Él invocó la idea del teólogo Paul Tillich de que hay una “posibilidad creativa y salvífica en cada situación”.Curry le pidió a los obispos que consideraran cómo emplear el concepto de Tillich de encontrar medios de “dar testimonio a la Comunión que amamos y de la que formamos parte y en nombre de nuestras hermanas y hermanos que amamos. ¿Cuáles son esas posibilidades creativas y salvíficas que reflejan el Camino del Amor, aunque sean difíciles?”Curry sugirió que contemplaran la formación de un pequeño grupo de obispos y cónyuges para generar algunas ideas antes de la reunión de la Cámara del 17 al 20 de septiembre. Los obispos y sus cónyuges se reunirán en septiembre. Los cónyuges normalmente no asisten a la reunión de primavera.Mary Glasspool, obispa auxiliar de la Diócesis de Nueva York, a la derecha en la fila delantera, en una foto de todas las obispas y obispas electas presentes en la reunión del 12 al 15 de marzo en el Centro de Conferencias y Retiro de Kanuga. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Glasspool fue elegida obispa sufragánea de Los Ángeles el 4 de diciembre de 2009, y fue consagrada el 15 de mayo de 2010, junto con la obispa sufragánea Diane Jardine Bruce que fue electa por la misma convención. En ese momento, ella era la 17ª. Obispa electa en la Iglesia Episcopal, y hasta el presente es la primera obispa abiertamente lesbiana de la Comunión Anglicana. Ella está casada con Becki Sander, su pareja de más de 30 años, y ha sido la obispa auxiliar de la Diócesis de Nueva York desde abril de 2016.Glasspool le habló a los obispos por cerca de 15 minutos, recordándoles cómo “a las pocas horas” de su elección, el entonces arzobispo de Cantórbery Rowan Williams hizo una declaración que se interpretó como un llamado a los comités permanentes diocesanos de la Iglesia Episcopal y a sus obispos con jurisdicción a no dar su consentimiento a la ordenación y consagración de Glasspool (el Canon III.11.3, a partir de la página 164 aquí, exige tal consentimiento después de todas las elecciones de obispos).Hace dos años, Williams, que se jubiló de Cantórbery en 2012, estuvo en Nueva York para la Semana Santa y fue invitado a tomar parte en el oficio tradicional de renovación de votos el Martes Santo en la iglesia catedral de San Juan el Teólogo [Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine]. Glasspool dijo que ella anhelaba encontrarse con él, y así ocurrió en medio de una atestada sacristía. Williams, según Glasspool, le dijo “obispa Mary, nosotros tuvimos un comienzo escabroso y yo lo siento. Espero que me perdonarás y que podamos comenzar de nuevo”.“Yo tartamudee, ‘Por supuesto. Entiendo. Gracias’. Para mí, este breve intercambio fue el más sagrado de los dones, un verdadero bálsamo de Galaad”, afirmó Glasspool.Ella también se refirió a una reunión, auspiciada por la iglesia de La Trinidad [Trinity] en Wall Street en septiembre de 2018 para darle al actual arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby la oportunidad de promover [la Conferencia de] Lambeth, durante la cual “él se desvió de su camino para saludar y entablar amistad”con la esposa de ella. Glasspool dijo que el Arzobispo y Sander tuvieron una “larga y amistosa conversación” acerca de su compartida “pasión por la obra social”. Welby, dijo Glasspool, le dio a Sander su tarjeta con su dirección electrónica personal y la invitó a mantenerse en contacto.Luego, dijo [Glasspool], ella se quedó sorprendida por una carta de Welby del 4 de diciembre de 2018, en que le decía que Sander no estaba invitada a Lambeth. Sander estaba “conmocionada, herida y enfurecida”. Cada una de ellas habían respondido por carta a Welby y, ella dijo que había esperado que las noticias acerca de la decisión de Welby no se habrían hecho públicas hasta esta reunión de la Cámara de Obispos.Sin embargo, el 15 de febrero, el secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana Josiah Idowu-Fearon escribió en un blog del Servicio de Noticias de la Comunión Anglicana que “sería inapropiado que cónyuges del mismo sexo fuesen invitados a la conferencia”.  Él dijo que la Comunión Anglicana define el matrimonio como “la unión de por vida de un hombre y una mujer”, tal como quedó codificado en la Resolución 1.10 de la Conferencia de Lambeth de 1998.En medio de la publicidad que generó el blog “se hizo extraordinariamente claro que este era un problema político”que iba más allá de ella y de Sander y de las otras dos parejas afectadas, dijo Glasspool.El Rdo. Thomas Brown debe ser ordenado y consagrado el 22 de junio como el próximo obispo de la Diócesis de Maine. Él está casado con el Rdo. Thomas Mousin. La diócesis eligió a Brown el 9 de febrero. El proceso de consentimiento está en marcha.El único otro obispo activo en la Comunión Anglicana a quien se sabe que se aplica la decisión de Welby es Kevin Robertson, obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Toronto. Él se casó con Mohan Sharma, su pareja de casi diez años, el 28 de diciembre de 2018.Robertson le dijo a ENS recientemente que Welby le había informado en persona a principios de febrero que Sharma no sería invitado. Roberto y Sharma son los padres de dos niños.Es posible que las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal elijan a obispos con cónyuges del mismo sexo de ahora al 23 de julio de 2010, fecha en que comienza la Conferencia de Lambeth.Glasspool le pidió a sus colegas de la Cámara que consideren que “los cónyuges son personas autónomas —que no son simples extensiones de los obispos con quienes están casados” y deben poder tomar sus propias decisiones respecto a Lambeth. Glasspool dijo que ella esperaba que la Cámara de Obispos no intentaría hablar por ellos, sino más bien “escuchar sus voces, individualmente, y en cualquier grado en que puedan hablar colectivamente, como grupo”.“En segundo lugar, yo creo realmente que es mejor estar en la mesa cuando uno está en el menú”, afirmó ella. “¿Cómo la gente llegará a ver y a conocer cómo el amor de Cristo vive y da frutos en las vidas de personas LGBT casadas si no estamos presentes para dar testimonio de ese amor?”Mientras Glasspool comenzó a plantear su tercer punto, se le quebró la voz. “Quiero que mi propia vida esté centrada en la vida, ministerio, muerte y resurrección de Jesucristo, y me atrevo a decir que ustedes también. Resulta fácil, y a veces muy tentador, para mí al menos, apartarme de ese centro. Luego, les pido su ayuda para mantenerme centrada”, dijo ella. “Estoy plenamente consciente de que el Camino del Amor es también el Camino de la Cruz. Todos ustedes saben esto también. El aspecto sacrificial del amor de Jesús por nosotros es también el más preciado, y por eso, y por todos ustedes, estoy eternamente agradecida”.La Cámara de Obispos está compuesta abrumadoramente de personas casadas. De 160 obispos en servicio activo, a tiempo completo o parcial en una diócesis o institución, sólo 16 son solteros, según el obispo Todd Ousley, que supervisa la Oficina de Desarrollo Pastoral de la Iglesia.Los obispos le dieron a Glasspool una prolongada ovación de pie. Antes de comenzar la sesión de clausura, Curry le dijo a ella que “el espíritu de Dios que estuvo sobre Martin [Luther] King [Jr.] está sobre ti ahora”.El 24 de febrero, el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal les pidió a los obispos y sus cónyuges y a la Cámara de Obispos colectivamente “que sopesen devota y cuidadosamente su respuesta, opciones y acciones”a la luz de lo que llamó  las “circunstancias preocupantes” de la decisión de excluir a cónyuges del mismo sexo de la Conferencia de Lambeth. El Consejo aprobó por unanimidad una resolución que decía que encontraba la decisión “incompatible” con las posiciones de la Iglesia Episcopal y con múltiples declaraciones de entidades de la Comunión Anglicana que han instado a la iglesia a escuchar las experiencias de personas LGBTQ.Un signo externo y visible de apoyo de parte de algunos obisposDesde el comienzo de la reunión, Brian Thom, el obispo de la Diócesis de Idaho, ha llevado una foto de Glasspool y Sander en su identificación. Es una “expresión de amor” por ellas y un reconocimiento para todos los cónyuges de los obispos, dijo él a ENS.Thom explicó que otros obispos le han preguntado acerca de la foto que cuelga debajo del distintivo con su nombre. Algunos le han pedido una [copia] para llevarla también, mientras “otros la han observado y me han dado las gracias por ello”, pero no me han pedido una copia, apuntó.Él le dijo a ENS que él descargó la foto de la Internet y no le dijo a Glasspool de antemano lo que estaba haciendo. Casualmente, ella fue la primera persona que él se encontró cuando llevaba por primera vez su identificación. Ella respondió con un gran abrazo, contó él, y luego tomó una foto para enviársela a Sander.“Sé cuanto contribuye mi cónyuge a mi ministerio”, dijo él refiriéndose a su esposa Ardele. “Es difícil para mí imaginar una invitación que no incluya a la pareja.“Todos los obispos aquí dirían que, de alguna manera, ellos no podrían hacer lo que hacen sin sus cónyuges”.Thom añadió, “la Comunión Anglicana está resolviendo su conflicto a costa de personas no responsables por el conflicto’.Sobre la agenda de la reuniónLa Cámara de Obispos sesiona del 12 al 15 de marzo en el Centro de Conferencias y Retiro de Kanuga, en las afueras de Hendersonville,  Carolina del Norte.Esta es la reunión anual del grupo en primavera. Los obispos normalmente se reúnen en primavera y en otoño en los años en que no hay Convención General.Los obispos concluirán su tiempo en Kanuga con una reunión de trabajo en la tarde del 15 de marzo.Otra cobertura de ENS puede encontrarse aquí.– La Rda.

Clients: Want to Know How to Get Your Dream Home?

first_imgCopyThis post was sponsored by BHI. Explore the benefits of a newly built home.Lawyers and Doctors have the utmost fortune that, no matter how much their patients/clients may think they know, their clients generally do not attempt to “go it alone.”Architects are not so lucky. For whatever reason, many home buyers believe that designing the home of their dreams is something they can do on their own – by designing themselves, or, even worse, by just buying an old house and “fixing it up”. We architects, on the other hand, know that the process is far more difficult than that – but also, so worth it in the end. Because designing a new home from scratch isn’t just more cost and energy efficient, but the only way to truly get the house of your dreams. So why should potential clients forego buying an old home and trust you to design their new home? For these 5 undeniable reasons (make sure to always have them at hand) … 1. An Architect Knows His MaterialsWhen you move into a used home, you will find yourself spending every weekend of the first year fixing up, tearing down, and replacing. Home Depot may become more familiar than your actual home! By working with an architect, he/she will be able to help you choose not only which materials are better suited to your taste, but also are the most durable in the long run (and under warranty!). Which means you can wave Home Depot good-bye. 2. An Architect Knows Energy-EfficiencyDesigning an energy-efficient house is not so easy as choosing between halogenic or compact fluorescent light bulbs. It involves knowledge of everything from which kind of glass insulates best to which kind of heating system (solar, passive, geothermal, etc.) heats/cools best. And, what’s more, there is no one solution to the energy-efficient home: every choice must correspond to your specific environment. With so many factors to consider, you’ll want an expert on your side to help you make these decisions, which will – of course – save you time and money in the long run.3. An Architect Will Design The Home You Always WantedNo matter how close an existing house can get to being the house of your dreams, it will never be what you had initially imagined. The only way to make your vision reality, is to talk to your architect about all the little things that make, for you, the perfect house perfect. Always dreamed of a double-sided chimney? Or a large walk-in closet? Have a strange love of mosaics? An architect will know exactly how to incorporate these personal touches into the bigger plan. 4. An Architect Will Design The Home You Didn’t Know You Wanted With their years of design experience, architects will be able to suggest to you things even you never even dreamed of. If you’re a party-giver, a kitchen-living room that’s a dream to cook and host in; if you’re a parent, extra storage hidden in nooks and crannies you never considered; if you’re reaching your Golden Years, a lay-out that will be able to access even with restricted mobility; if you’re a nature lover, a building orientation that emphasizes and frames your views. You may not know it yet, but an architect will suggest things you’ll wonder how you ever lived without!5. An Architect Can Save You Time & Money & Give You the House of Your DreamsA new home is a huge investment, so why wouldn’t you make it the smartest one you’ve ever made? For all the reasons cited above, the bottom line is that an Architect will help you have the house of your dreams – and, in the long run, save you time and money.

In close vincinity of Szczecin, in Kobylanka there is one house, differing from the “typical” suburban cityscape. Designed by architect’s couple Anna and Krzysztof Paszkowski-Thurow resembles immediately a picture of modern barn. Compact and energy-saving house is exploring archetype of typical polish countryside architecutre yet Anna and Krzysztof have merged it with innovation by using modern material and colour settings like dark-grey fibre cement slates as facade and roof cladding. On the contrary gable walls were plastered in white. Southern wall has a dynamic cut-out which forms roofed sundeck. Bold silhouette of the building makes a strong statement: there is a border between contemporary and “typical” architecture. Save this picture!© Bartłomiej Bieliński This house was a comission from a young couple and although it may not seem obvious, this is a family friendly “barn”. To proove that, there is a clear distiction between day, working and resting zones both for parents and yougsters. There is also a double height living room interconnected with common space on the 1st floor, allowing for good communication among the house.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!First FloorWhen designing interiors of this house, Anna has referred to the character of the owners, their job as landscape developers and their numerous travels.

Florence causing ‘historic and unprecedented flooding’; at least 17 dead

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW BERN, N.C.) –Florence weakened to a tropical depression Sunday, but that is cold comfort to residents in North Carolina who have seen over 2 feet of rain and are now battling major-river flooding and possible tornadoes.“Flood waters are still raging across parts of our state, and the risk to life is rising with the angry waters,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a midday news conference.He added that “this storm has never been more dangerous than it is right now” in certain areas of the state.Some parts of the state were getting 2 to 3 inches an hour, Cooper said.“That’s enough to cause flooding in areas that have never flooded before until now,” Cooper said.Since the storm made landfall as a hurricane in North Carolina on Friday morning, it has been blamed for 16 deaths.Officials said at least 17 people have died in both states. The death toll included a person killed Sunday in a pickup truck crash near Gilbert, South Carolina, that occurred when the motorist drove through standing water on a roadway, according to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety.Hundreds of people have been rescued by local authorities, Cajun Navy volunteers and the U.S. Coast Guard since Friday morning.New evacuation orders were issued Sunday for a mile-long area along the Cape Fear and Little rivers in North Carolina. More than 700,000 households and businesses in the state were still without power as of Sunday afternoon, an estimated 15,000 people were in shelters, and 171 primary roads were closed including parts of two interstates, authorities said.The state Highway Patrol advised people to stay off the roads, saying troopers responded to 48 collisions from Saturday night and into Sunday morning.Adding to the threat of further flooding, a tornado watch was in effect for most of Sunday for the areas of Wilmington, Fayetteville, Myrtle Beach, Jacksonville, Oak Island, and Florence.“It’s bad right now, and we do expect it to get worse over the coming days,” Michael Sprayberry, director of North Carolina Emergency Management, said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “We know that’s going to be a major mission going forward because this is historic and unprecedented flooding.”Major-river flooding a threatCatastrophic flooding unfolded Sunday morning in parts of North Carolina, exceeding flooding 19 years ago in Hurricane Floyd, the National Weather Service said.One waterway — the Cape Fear River — rose 15 feet in just 24 hours from early Saturday to early Sunday. It reached flood stage in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where mandatory evacuation orders were issued Saturday.“This will be very dangerous flooding over the next few days,” the National Weather Service said in a tweet Sunday morning.The Coast Guard head echoed this view.“My biggest concern is the rising water,” Schultz said on This Week, noting that Wilmington, North Carolina, got 24 inches of rain and could potentially get 15 inches more.“We’re looking at a high-water situation,” he said. “The rivers could potentially crest here into the early part of this week. So we have not seen the worst of the flooding.”Schultz was among the emergency officials who briefed President Trump on the storm on Saturday.“We talked about the massive risk the storm poses — catastrophic flooding, prolonged flooding,” he said of the briefing. “We gave him an update on response capabilities in the theater, and the president is completely leaning in — anything the feds need to do to support the local, the state partners here in South Carolina and North Carolina. We feel fully supported.”The Lumber River, near Lumberton, North Carolina, will rise into major flood stage Sunday morning. It is expected to reach a level very near the record Hurricane Matthew set in 2016. Mandatory evacuations were issued for South Lumberton on Saturday.Major-river flooding is also expected on some rivers from southern Virginia to northern South Carolina.The Northeast Cape Fear River, near Chinquapin, North Carolina, will rise above record flood levels set by Hurricane Floyd in 1999. This will cause devastating flooding across much of Onslow County with travel made impossible and many homes completely flooded.The Neuse River — both near Goldsboro and Kinston, North Carolina — will reach major flood stage late Sunday and into Monday. The Waccamaw River, near Conway, South Carolina, will rise near record levels by the end of the week.Florence has dropped a tremendous amount of rain in eastern North Carolina, with a widespread 20 to 30 inches already reported. Radar is estimating that some areas between Wilmington and New Bern, North Carolina, have received over 30 inches of rain.These are some of the latest rainfall totals as of 11 p.m. Saturday:— Swansboro, N.C. — 30.59 inches— Newport/Morehead City, N.C. — 25.20 inches— Elizabethtown, N.C. — 20.17 inches— Jacksonville, N.C. — 16.13 inches— Conway, S.C. — 9.90 inches— Myrtle Beach Airport, S.C. — 6.74 inchesFlorence is now the third storm to set a tropical cyclone state rainfall record in just the last 12 months. Harvey dropped 60.58 inches of rain last year in Texas, setting the state’s new record. Just last month, Lane dropped a maximum of 52.02 inches of rain in Hawaii, breaking the state record. The 30.59 inches that have fallen in Swansboro sets a new record for North Carolina.Florence also currently stands as the sixth-highest tropical cyclone rainfall total across the U.S. for records dating back to 1950.Heavy rain spreads inlandHeavy rains bands are still coming onshore in eastern South Carolina and North Carolina on Sunday morning. Some of the heavier bands have shifted toward Fayetteville, Charlotte and Raleigh.Torrential rain is causing inland flooding with major roadways closed, including large portions of I-95.An additional 6 to 10 inches of rain is still possible along the southeast border of North Carolina and South Carolina.Life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding is likely over the southern to central Appalachians from western North Carolina into western Virginia and eastern West Virginia. Torrential rain will cause flash flooding and increase the risk for landslides in the higher terrains.Florence is still moving very slowly inland. The track shows Florence moving west through Sunday, and then gradually turning north by Monday. Florence will likely become a remnant low within 36 hours.Even though Florence is weakening, it will still bring significant rainfall inland to the Appalachians before moving toward the Northeast on Tuesday. Totals could exceed 4 inches locally for inland New York and Massachusetts.“People need to heed the warnings from their local emergency management experts and stay in safe ground,” the Coast Guard’s Adm. Schultz said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
