Presiding Bishop Michael Curry releases Easter message in video

first_img Back to Press Releases 5:17 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Director of Music Morristown, NJ Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC The following is the text of the Presiding Bishop’s Easter 2019 Message: Easter 2019 MessageThe Rt. Reverend Barbara Harris was the first woman ordained and consecrated a bishop in The Episcopal Church and in the Anglican Communion. In her memoir, entitled Hallelujah, Anyhow![she] quotes an old Gospel hymn that says it this way:Hallelujah anyhowNever let your troubles get you downWhen your troubles come your wayHold your hands up high and sayHallelujah anyhow!When I get to Heaven, I want to meet one person, and her name is Mary Magdalene. Because if ever there was another Hallelujah, Anyhow sister, it was Mary Magdalene. And her life, and her example, tells us what it means to follow in the way of Jesus, in the Way of Love.Mary Magdalene showed up when others would not. Mary Magdalene spoke up when others remained silent. Mary Magdalene stood up when others sat down.John’s Gospel tells us that when many of the disciples fled and abandoned Jesus, Mary Magdalene stood by him at the cross. Hallelujah, Anyhow.Against the odds, swimming against the current, Mary Magdalene was there.John’s Gospel says in the 20th chapter, early in the morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene and some of the other women went to the tomb. Hallelujah, Anyhow.They went to the tomb when it didn’t make any sense. They went to the tomb when the evidence was against them. Jesus was dead. They knew that. The power of the Empire had crushed the hope of love. They knew that. And they got up in the morning and went to the tomb anyhow. Hallelujah, Anyhow.But more than that, John’s Gospel says it was dark. It was dark. That’s not just the time of day in John’s Gospel. The darkness in John is the domain of evil. In John’s Gospel when Judas leaves the Last Supper to betray Jesus, John inserts a parenthetical remark. When Judas leaves to betray him, John says, “And it was night.” The darkness is the domain of wrong, of hatred, of bigotry, of violence, the domain of sin and death and horror.And early in the morning while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb, Hallelujah, Anyhow.The truth is, she didn’t know that Jesus was alive. She was just doing what love does. Caring for her beloved, her Savior, her friend, in his time of death, to give him the last rites of burial. And when she got to the tomb, and the other women with them, they eventually discovered that Jesus was alive, and in the silence of the night, in the moments of despair, in the moments of the worst darkness, God had done something incredible. God had raised Jesus from the deadThe truth is, nobody saw Jesus rise from the dead, because God had done it secretly and quietly, when nobody was looking.When I was in high school, I learned a poem composed by James Russell Lowell. He wrote it in the 19th century, in one of the darkest periods in American history, when this country was torn asunder by the existence of chattel slavery in our midst. In this great land of freedom, there were slaves being held in bondage. And this nation literally went to war, tearing itself apart, trying to find the way to do what was right. And James Russell Lowell wrote, in the midst of this darkness, in this dark hour:Though the cause of evil prosper, yet ‘tis truth alone and strong . . . Though her portion be a scaffold, and upon the throne be wrongYet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknownStandeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his ownHallelujah, Anyhow.Christ is risenThe Lord is risen, indeed.God love you, God bless you, and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.The Episcopal Church invites all to virtually join the congregation of St. Paul’s/San Pablo Episcopal Church in Kansas City, Kansas for their Holy Week services.

Hoosier Homestead Awards Honor Commitment to the Land

first_img By Andy Eubank – Apr 11, 2017 Last week Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) Director Ted McKinney presented Hoosier Homestead Awards to 39 farming families. The award recognizes the commitment by those families to Indiana agriculture, and the commitment of one family dates back to before Indiana was a state. Gary Jacobi and family from Greenville in Floyd County received this round’s only Bicentennial award.Gary Jacobi“In 1816 we have a deed signed by James Madison, 4th President of the United States, that we had obtained 160 acres at that time a few months before Indiana became a state in November of that year,” he told HAT. “So, it’s be in the family and passed down from Collins, to Taylor, to now Jacobi, passing down on the female side. The farm is my mom’s home place.”She lives in the 2-story red brick house built in the mid 1820’s. The 400-acre farm includes 100 acres of timber and 240 acres of crop land.McKinney with ISDA says the biannual presentations the past 40 years offer a tip of the hat to families and their commitment to the land.Ted McKinney“When you can marry those together, families coming together, families passing along an asset like farmland and then celebrate that with those accomplishments of 100, or 150 or 200 years in the family, it just makes for a great celebration,” McKinney said. “It comes back to that reverence of the land, reverence of farms and reverence of being Hoosier farmers.”The Hoosier Homestead program is administered by ISDA and has recognized more than 5,000 farms since 1976. To be named a Hoosier Homestead, farms must be owned by the same family for more than 100 consecutive years; and consist of more than 20 acres or produce more than $1000 of agricultural products per year.“Agriculture contributes $31 billion to our state’s economy, and it’s because of the hard work, dedication and innovation of Indiana’s farming families,” said Lt. Governor Crouch. “I want to congratulate them on earning the Hoosier Homestead Award and for their commitment to continuing Indiana’s legacy as an agricultural leader.”Farms received the Centennial Award for 100 years of ownership, the Sesquicentennial Award for 150 years of ownership and in the case of the Jacobi family, the Bicentennial Award for 200 years of ownership.“Generation after generation of Indiana’s farming families have dedicated their lives to feeding their neighbors, the state and the world,” Director McKinney said. “They have contributed so much to our state’s legacy, both economically and socially, and are the engine that drives our industry forward. It was an honor to recognize all of these great families at the Statehouse.”Below is a list of the Hoosier Homestead Award recipients honored during the spring 2017 ceremony with their farm county, family name(s), homestead date and type of award”Adams, Daniel Roth, 1866, SesquicentennialBartholomew, Glenn & Nellie Glick, 1846, SesquicentennialBartholomew, Original Speaker Lane Farm, 1908, CentennialClark, Clifton Eve/Elizabeth Weidner Family Farm, 1915, CentennialClark, Dreyer, 1865, SesquicentennialDecatur, Deniston, 1866, SesquicentennialDecatur, Evans, 1834, SesquicentennialDubois, Balsmeyer Family Farm, 1853, CentennialDubois, Balsmeyer Family Farm, 1853, SesquicentennialDubois, Egler, 1841, CentennialDubois, Egler, 1841, SesquicentennialDubois, Leo C.

The offence came to be registered on the complaint filed on February 5 by the mother of the victim boy. According to the victim boy’s mother, on February 4, when she returned home in the evening, her son aged 13 years, appeared frightened and when she enquired, he informed her that the applicant accused had asked him to accompany him to his house at 3 pm and when he went to his house, he locked the door from inside and he was made to sleep on the coat and remove his clothes. When the boy asked the applicant why he was doing so, he assaulted the boy. Thereafter, the applicant attempted to have carnal intercourse with him and when the boy raised an alarm, the applicant pressed his mouth and once again attempted to commit the unnatural act. When the victim felt dizzy because of the act, he was asked to wear the clothes and threatened that if he reported the incident to anyone, he would be killed. The young victim boy was subjected to medical examination on February 5 at 4:15 p.m. The examination of his private parts revealed that there is a tear of approximately 2 x 0.2 cm. over anus, it is reddish without any bleeding.Final OrderAfter examining the facts of the case, Justice Dangre noted that considering the fact that the applicant himself is aged 20 years and is a young boy, with the antecedents which have been reported and which reflect that he is already in conflict with law, a report was called from Yerwada Central Prison by order dated December 3, 2020. Additional Public Prosecutor SV Gavand placed on record the report from the Yerawada Central Prison in which the superintendent of prison has reported that the behaviour of the applicant in jail since the date of his incarceration i.e. on February 10, 2020 is satisfactory. He was also subjected to psychological assessment and he was screened for psychiatric disturbance. It is reported that there is no psychological disturbance or any psychiatric illness. On his examination on December 21, 2020, the accused is found to be co-operative and communicative. His thoughts are coherent and no abnormality is reported. In the opinion expressed by the Clinical Psychiatrist, Yerawada Central Prison the applicant’s behaviour and mental condition is found to be stable.Justice Dangre observed-“Apart from the seriousness of the accusation, which he is facing, his impressionable age will also have to be taken into consideration while dealing with his bail application. He is reported to have indulged in the past, when he was juvenile in offences invoking Sections 323 and 324, 504, 506 of the IPC. Barely attaining the majority, in the year 2018, he is involved in two offences registered in Chaturshrungi Police Station; one invoking Sections 323, 324, 504 and 506 with Arms Act and another offence invoking Sections 354 , 354A(1) of the IPC. Chapter proceedings were also initiated against the applicant.”Court went on to analyze the psyche of a young man in conflict with the law and the reformative or rehabilitative approach to sentencing-“What makes a young boy turn to crime is a matter of in depth study. Factors like peer pressure, poor education, poor socioeconomic status and neglectful childhood may be some factors. Though no crime can be justified on the ground that the circumstances around him makes a person criminal since punishment is the coercion used to enforce the law and it is one of the pillars of modern civilization. Providing a peaceful society life is the duty of a State. Lack of punishment causes the law to lose its face and may result in a lawless society. However the reformative approach to curb crimes and reform the convicts has come up in order to protect the basic rights a human is entitled to. Across the globe, rehabilitation seeks to bring about fundamental changes in offenders and their behaviour. It generally works through education and psychological transformation to reduce the likelihood of future criminality. The purpose of the reformative theory also known as rehabilitative sentencing is to reform the offender as a person so that he may become a normal law abiding member of the community once again. The theory of reformation, which is invoked at times on the global front, is not the one which should only be tested at the time when a person is convicted, at the time of commuting of sentence. Here is a young boy aged 20 years, who is already in conflict with law and as the learned counsel has argued, his long incarceration may turn him into a hardened criminal and the apprehension cannot be said to be unfounded. However, at the same time for commission of the alleged acts which are legally prohibited, he will have to be punished.”Granting bail to the accused, Court noted that the release of the applicant is in the form of an experiment to work out on the reformation of a young accused person, awaiting trial expecting that the applicant will not indulge himself further in any unlawful act.Finally, Justice Dangre asked the Dean of the Sassoon General Hospital to open a file in the name of the applicant with Sassoon Hospital and entrust him to a Clinical Psychologist and a Psychiatrist from the said Hospital.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Marine Corps reservist under investigation for photo of boots forming a swastika

first_imgiStock/mj0007(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) —  A Marine Corps reservist is under investigation for posting a photo on Instagram that showed four pairs of boots in the shape of a swastika.“We can confirm that Pfc. Anthony D. Schroader is a member of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve and is assigned to 4th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserve located in West Palm Beach, Florida,” Marine Forces Reserve confirmed to ABC News on Tuesday.Schroader allegedly sent the photo to Marine veteran Maximilian Uriarte last week, asking him to post it on the social media pages for “Terminal Lance,” a popular comic series by Uriarte about the Marine Corps.Instead, Uriate tweeted the photo to Marine Corps officials, asking them to investigate. He then deleted the tweet after he got confirmation from the Corps that they would look into the photo, according to Task & Purpose which first reported the story.“There is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps,” Marine Forces Reserve said. “The Terminal Lance tweet featuring derogatory behavior by Marines is currently being investigated and any further comment would be premature.”Schroader joined the Marine Forces Reserve last July and graduated from boot camp in January. He arrived at his first assignment in West Palm Beach on Friday, the same day he allegedly sent the photo to Uriarte.The Marine Forces Reserve could not identify the other individuals with boots in the photo due to the ongoing investigation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Temperature controls carbon cycling and biological evolution in the ocean twilight zone.

first_imgTheory suggests that the ocean’s biological carbon pump, the process by which organic matter is produced at the surface and transferred to the deep ocean, is sensitive to temperature because temperature controls photosynthesis and respiration rates. We applied a combined data-modeling approach to investigate carbon and nutrient recycling rates across the world ocean over the past 15 million years of global cooling. We found that the efficiency of the biological carbon pump increased with ocean cooling as the result of a temperature-dependent reduction in the rate of remineralization (degradation) of sinking organic matter. Increased food delivery at depth prompted the development of new deep-water niches, triggering deep plankton evolution and the expansion of the mesopelagic “twilight zone” ecosystem.last_img read more
