Rev. Justin Welby, bishop of Durham and archbishop of Canterbury-elect, on Jan. 28 bade farewell to the Durham diocese with a message of hope for the people he is leaving behind.Welby attended a service of farewell, thanks and celebration at Durham Cathedral in what was his last public appearance in the diocese before he receives his legal title as archbishop of Canterbury.Welby will cease to be bishop of Durham and have the legal title bestowed on him as archbishop of Canterbury at 12 noon on Feb. 4 at a formal service in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. His public ministry will be inaugurated at an enthronement service at Canterbury Cathedral on March 21.The farewell service for Welby and his wife Caroline drew a large congregation from across the diocese and the region and was attended by the Lord Lieutenant Sir Paul Nicholson.Speaking about his new job in an interview before the service, he said: “It is extremely scary and a huge privilege. It’s an extraordinary feeling to look back and see my predecessors, some of whom are extraordinarily distinguished, like my immediate predecessor Rowan Williams, who is breathtaking in his grip and imagination and his intellect and in many other ways. It’s exciting. There is a sense of what is God going to do?”Asked what effect the possibility of a triple-dip recession could have on the Durham diocese, he said: “It is a huge challenge. Whether we go into a triple-dip or not, whatever does happen it’s going to go on being pretty dark economically. However, at the centre of the church is Jesus Christ, who is described as the light of the world, and the darker the world, the more obvious the light.“The church is a centre of peace and hope which is completely independent of the circumstances around it so church communities everywhere have to be consciously seeking to be that peace and hope, welcoming and loving, ministering to people, letting them come and experience church life, making it easy for them to do so.“In this diocese, churches, not just Church of England but churches generally, are organising about 50 food distribution centres. That’s the light of the world in the dark times in very practical ways. The church has often been at its best at times of difficulty because, as people are drawn into worship, they find someone who is faithful, whatever happens.“If I have had three wishes for the diocese of Durham and its people, you couldn‘t get much better than what St. Paul talks about in chapter thirteen of the first letter to the Corinthians, which is faith, hope and love.“Faith in God and in each other, in the capacity of this area to pull itself up and give itself a great future, which I utterly believe is within the capacity of this area and is being demonstrated. You only have to look at what’s happening in places like the Foundation for Jobs in Darlington (of which he is patron) and lots of other examples in the north of the diocese. Really very remarkable work is being done.“Hope that some of the struggles of the present will be ended but also hope in the sense of expectation that there is a really good future out there. Hope shows in how we train people, teach them what to expect and give them a vision.“Love, knowing the love of God and love for each other. One of the plagues of the Western world, including this country, is the absence of trust in each other but in this area the friendliness, its capacity and the strength of its character and people means that it can set an example on the trust that comes through a genuine love for each other and community and area.“Three big wishes but I think they’re achievable. You build these things a step at a time.”Transcript of the sermon deliveredThis sermon is very under prepared. It needed at least 10 more years in the cooking, and is more an exposure of brevity than a reflection on ministry.That being said the call of God comes in numerous and often unexpected ways, and His voice and word to us is the constant amongst the changes of life. Whenever we are beset with fear and uncertainty, it is to His voice we must turn, to the constancy that is more solid than unreliability of human beings.We are in the most powerful symbol of stability in the world. The massive bulk of this Cathedral and the journey from Bede the theological historian to Cuthbert the missionary, turns the changes of human practice, dress, liturgy and interpretation of Christian faith into mere passing moments. Bishops come and go, Priors, Deans change, but the Church is the same. As a building its relative narrowness compared to its length gives a sense of strong shoulders and long journeys, the journeys of Christian faith, and the trials within them supported and given direction.And yet if we think only that we miss half the message. The building is grand, it draws the eye up to God, it stills anxiety and speaks of peace, the beauty of high rose windows breathes life into tired spirits. But it is also a stage set on which the drama of Christian life is played, and that drama goes on never repeating, never ceasing, always changing. The wanderings of the Israelites in this great passage from Numbers also speaks of solidity and movement. The cloud is always there by day and fire by night. There is the continual certainty of the presence of God. But where it goes is anybody’s guess.Come with me to a typical Israelite tent, standard family, mother and father and about eight children, a few goats, a great deal of general clobber, and possibly a donkey. It is early morning, the first light of dawn beginning to take the chill off the desert. And what are they talking about? I suspect who is going to look at the cloud. “It’s your turn”, “no, I looked yesterday”, “well I did three days in a row when you had a cold”, and so on. Because if you look out, and the cloud has lifted, it means ……  packing! You might have been there six months or one day, but you have to move. And let me tell you, and here I am an expert, packing to move is no fun. We have been doing it all day. It leads to gritted teeth, bad temper, pulled muscles and damaged possessions. And they did it unpredictably for 40 years.The people of God are always in the midst of change. We look to the Church of England for stability, but we must instead look to God for direction and purpose, for the journey we are to travel with Him, and for vision of our destination. Change is always happening, and my natural instinct of moaning about it does no good. The answer is not avoiding change, but embracing pilgrimage, drawing close to God in worship so that we are filled with excitement about where we are going. The call of God is to move, and the uncertainty of the future is countered by His unfailing love.Change comes even when we are still. On a journey back from London last week there was a signalling fault. Another train was alongside us. After an hour or so one of us began to move. The scenery changed, even if for a while we did not know if it was us, them or both.The church may be still but the world around us moves. Culture and expectations of morality change, economics brings destruction or renewal, often both. We have rapid adaptation by brilliant manufacturing in this region, the taking on of interns and apprentices  … and we have 40% cuts in local government funding  (If you want to see an astute review of the effect of the cuts see what the Bishop of Liverpool the Right Reverend James Jones said to his diocese on the subject. It was with great sadness that I heard that he has announced his retirement today). All around us is rapid change and those struggling to deal with it, change for good and for ill.The disciples of Jesus are in desolation, reverting to the securities they know, of fishing and locality in Galilee, and finding even that failing them. There is a lostness about the opening of John 21. And the comfort of Jesus comes by surprise, unrecognised. If Numbers calls us to wander on in trust that God is faithful, John tells us how.He is present, and they do not know Him. My first lesson in a challenging week of silent retreat 10 days ago was to remember the presence of God, which I had neglected. He is here, and often I either turn away or forget. Yet even when they do not know Him, He guides them and restores the normality of life and profession. They catch a lot of fish. His faithfulness does not at all rely on our reception of it, but on His faithfulness. Be reassured.He calls and they answer: as they see Him they are able to respond, in different ways, with a cry, with encouragement, with collecting what He has given, or with leaping clothed into the water. I wonder if Peter’s wife said when he got home, “clothes ruined, couldn’t you have walked?”.He brings them into His work; He has fish but asks for theirs. The church is not necessary to the work of God, but in his grace He has made us essential to His loving. He loves us to share in His work, to participate in the providential outworking of His purposes.And He feeds them, bread and fish as at the 5,000. Provision where there is nothing.What is this Diocese primarily? It is not organisation or institution, even grand buildings, it is a people called to be loved by God. This Cathedral speaks to us of the everlasting faithfulness of that love, these passages of our call to respond.It is God’s purpose that we should each be consoled and comforted by that love, present, participative, purposeful, providing, and in the strength that He brings pack and move on. Far more than that as we each and all together grow in knowing and recalling the source of that love, God with us, we overflow to generous and self-giving sharing of it with our communities.We are called to be pilgrims overflowing with love, spreading it in our journey, and being that is the gift of God, not the work of any individual.

Foto de Sharon Sheridan/ENS.Millones de personas no conocen ese tipo de amor y de acogida, dijo él, instando a la congregación a ser evangélica, “de manera que otros cerca de ustedes… que no se sienten bienvenidos ni amados puedan compartir lo que ustedes están experimentando en su plenitud, este sentido de Iglesia con ellos”.La predicadora de la noche, la obispa sufragánea de Los Ángeles Mary D. Glasspool, describió algunos de los importantes acontecimientos de la semana pasada, desde la ratificación de parte del Tribunal Supremo de EE.UU. de la Ley de Atención Sanitaria Accesible y de “hacer la igualdad matrimonial ley del país” hasta el panegírico del presidente Barack Obama del Rdo. Clementa Pinckney y de “otros ocho mártires asesinados en la iglesia metodista episcopal africana Madre Emanuel en Charleston, Carolina del Sur”.La Convención General experimentó la elección de su primer obispo primado afroamericano, el obispo de Carolina del Norte Michael Bruce Curry, y un desfile contra la violencia armada que demostró “que podemos hacer tanto como debatir. Además de lenguas, tenemos piernas y ruedas y debemos usar ambas”, dijo ella.“La presidente de la Cámara de Diputados dijo en su magnífico sermón del viernes que la traducción es una parte importante de la obra que estamos llamados a hacer, traduciendo visiones grandes y gloriosas en realidades concretas”, dijo Glasspool. “Me gustaría añadir a eso. Yo creo que redefinir es también una parte importante de la obra que estamos llamados a hacer, como en la redefinición del matrimonio. Y creo que llegamos a este punto de redefinir el matrimonio redefiniendo otras dos palabras muy comunes: ‘hogar’ y ‘familia’”.Entrelazando las historias de la Odisea (Crew, ex profesor de inglés asentía y sonreía a la referencia que ella hacía del hexámetro dactílico), su propia vida y la de Jesús, Glasspool exploró los significados tradicionales de hogar y familia y como Jesús extensamente los redefinió.“Para Jesús, ‘hogar’ significaba muchas cosas. Él nació en Belén, creció en Nazaret; se sentía ‘en casa” en Capernaum”, dijo ella. “Abandonó el hogar para traer el reino de Dios: confrontar a los demonios y exorcizarlos, enseñar y curar a la gente de sus enfermedades y quebrantos; y mostrarle a la gente un modo mucho más tangible y concreto de estar con Dios. Porque, en último término, ‘hogar’ para Jesús no eran tanto un ‘donde’ como un ‘cuando’.“‘Hogar’ para Jesús era cuando él estaba con Dios —y eso parecía ser, de alguna manera, todo el tiempo. Sin embargo había aún un sentido en que Jesús y todas las Escrituras hacían una distinción entre un hogar terrenal, temporal, y un hogar eterno con Dios, que está más allá del tiempo y el lugar”.

Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.“Muchos de nosotros aquí esta noche nunca han conocido una Iglesia Episcopal sin una voz firme y constante en defensa de las personas LGBTQ”, dijo Jennings. En la medida en que la Iglesia se ha encaminado hacia la plena inclusión de todas las personas “a veces adentrándose en el desierto, a veces caminando hacia atrás… hemos tenido a Louie para guiarnos”.Ella citó sus logros, entre ellos el de haber servido durante un período en el Consejo Ejecutivo, el de ser “uno de los miembros más respetados de la Cámara” durante seis temporadas como diputado de la Diócesis de Newark y el haber ayudado a la Iglesia en la era de las redes sociales a fomentar la comunicación, el amor y la comunidad.“Louis estaba en las redes sociales antes de que hubiera redes sociales”, dijo ella. “Sus publicaciones en Facebook son divertidas, conmovedoras y profundas”.“Me enorgullezco de decir que Louie es mi amigo”, dijo. “Me siento honrada de presentarte la medalla de la Cámara de Diputados por tu servicio y testimonio distinguidos, creativos, valientes, persistentes y proféticos a la Iglesia Episcopal que tanto amas”Crew, que asistía con su marido Ernest, exhortó a los feligreses: “Aman a Jesús, digan ‘amén’.

La ‘familia’ para Jesús era cualquiera que hiciera la voluntad de Dios: sus discípulos, presentes y futuros”, dijo. “Esto presenta un desafío para la Iglesia… Debemos entender que la familia de Jesús no se parece a nuestras propias familias de sangre o adoptadas. La familia de Jesús está compuesta por toda clase de gente rara y maravillosa, quebrantada y enferma. La familia de Jesús nace mediante las aguas del bautismo y se nutre de la propia sangre de Jesús.Glasspool concluyó diciendo: “Hogar” no es tanto donde como cuando estamos con Dios. La ‘familia’ no es tanto quien como cualquiera que hace la voluntad de Dios; lo cual aun nos deja con esta aventura que llamamos ‘vida’. Es el regalo que Dios nos hace. Es la trayectoria de Dios y a Dios. Es todo lo que hacemos y todo lo que somos, desde el nacimiento a la muerte y más allá, incluido el combatir a gigantes devoradores de hombre y enfrentar a los que nos quieren apartar de la gran aventura. Es cólera y dolor y júbilo y asombro y esperanza y amor. Es casarse con la persona que amamos y con la que estamos comprometidos y con la que queremos pasar el resto de nuestra vida. Es dejar el hogar y volver al hogar. Con fumadores y bebedores y sacerdotes y pecadores y santos. Con la familia en el hogar.“Jesús tenía razón. El apóstol Pablo tenía razón.

EU wants to forget Andijan crackdown but journalists still targeted by police paranoia

first_imgNews October 28, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 EU wants to forget Andijan crackdown but journalists still targeted by police paranoia News In the latest example of official paranoia and harassment of the press, Tashkent-based freelance journalists Vasiliy Markov and Sid Yanyshev were interrogated by police and members of the secret services about their work for more than 10 hours during a recent visit to the eastern border region near the city of Andijan.“The European Union has just lifted the last of its remaining sanctions on the Uzbek government, but this episode shows that there has been no liberalisation and that Uzbek society is still subject to arbitrary and dictatorial rule,” Reporters Without Borders said.The two journalists had gone to an area near Andijan to do a report about the difficulties for residents to cross the Kyrgyz border. Just as they were about to begin the return journey to Tashkent, a customs officer stopped them when he saw Yanyshev take a photo from their taxi. After an initial interrogation, he took them to the border post’s commander. They were searched there, their mobile phones were confiscated and they were questioned again about their presence in the region. A few hours later, they were interrogated again by two members of the SNB (the former KGB) who had been sent specially from Andijan. The two SNB officers discovered the audio cassettes on which they had recorded interviews. In one of the interviews, a local human rights activist talked about the 2005 rioting in Andijan and this year’s rioting in Khanabad. This made the SNB officers even more suspicious and the two journalists were transferred to the main police station in the town of Karasu. After waiting several hours in the police station’s internal courtyard, they were questioned yet again by the deputy station chief and another SNB officer. They were finally released and their camera and tape-recorder were returned. But the police held on to the audio cassettes.After returning to Tashkent, the two journalists were not arrested or questioned again and the incident seemed to be over. Yanyshev wrote a careful article in which he described the situation in Andijan as calm. Nonetheless, well-informed sources told him the SNB was determined to ask the prosecutor’s office to investigate him on suspicion of “preparing and disseminating material containing a threat to security and public order” under article 244-1 of the criminal code. The same sources said the secret services also had Markov in their sights.This is not the first time that Markov has been directly threatened. On 9 July of this year he was given a beating by two men who accosted him in the street and told him: “It is not nice to write for suspect websites. You should just write for (the official newspapers) Uzbekistan Today and Narodnoe Slovo.” As this took place in an area of Tashkent that he does not normally visit, he deduced that he had been followed or located by means of his mobile phone.The EU imposed sanctions on Uzbekistan in October 2005 after Tashkent refused to let an international commission investigate the bloody crackdown on an uprising in Andijan the previous May. In an indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force, the police opened fire on a crowd, killing hundreds of people (although the official figure was only 188 dead). At the same time, a complete news blackout was imposed on the local and foreign press in Uzbekistan.The sanctions included a ban on visas for 12 senior Uzbek officials, an embargo on arms sales and the partial suspension of a partnership and cooperation accord between the EU and Uzbekistan. The EU began gradually lifting the sanctions in November 2006 and announced the end of the arms embargo yesterday – a move criticised in a release issued jointly by Reporters Without Borders, Human Rights Watch and International Crisis Group.Ten journalists are currently in prison in Uzbekistan. They include Dilmurod Sayid, who was given a 12-year sentence last month, and Solidjon Abdurakhamanov, who received a 10-year sentence in June.

Freddie Mac Forecasts Housing Conditions Through 2019

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Freddie Mac has released its latest Outlook, breaking down the state of the housing market in April 2018 and examining where things are likely to head over the next few years. The Outlook forecasts continual gradual growth through Q4 2019, so long as construction continues to ramp up to help offset current constraints on available housing inventory.Freddie’s Outlook predicts that mortgage rates will wind up averaging 4.9 percent in Q4 2018 and 5.4 percent in Q4 2019, respectively. Freddie’s Outlook bases these predictions on the assumption that housing supply will continue to increase, whereas demand will cool slightly as mortgage rates rise. The Outlook also anticipates that the Fed will continue raising rates in order to combat inflation.Under these conditions, Freddie Mac anticipates that total home sales will increase from 6.12 million in 2017 to 6.3 million in 2018. For 2019, Freddie predicts total home sales to hit 6.44 million. “New home sales will drive the growth,” the Freddie Mac Outlook states. “The existing home sales market will likely remain flat under our baseline forecast. For existing home sales, the effect of stronger income growth and other demand-side factors will be roughly balanced by rising rates. New homes sales will drive growth as housing construction keeps grinding higher.”However, Freddie predicts that, while housing construction will continue increasing, it is unlikely to see much acceleration during those two years. “The existing home sales market has little room for growth with inventories so constrained,” the Outlook states. “Our baseline forecast has only modest increases in mortgage rates. As our historical analysis showed, rapid increases in rates typically dampen housing market activity significantly.”If rates for the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage increase above 5.5 percent, Freddie Mac’s Outlook predicts a decrease in home sales of around 10 percent relative to their baseline.To read the full Freddie Mac Outlook for April 2018, click here.

Rally highlights women’s, families’ call for a living wage in Tompkins County

first_imgThose looking to weigh in on Tompkins County minimum wage policy are invited by the Working Group to attend an information gathering session from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Dryden Community Center Café. People who are interested in attending Saturday are asked to sign up here. Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328. More by Devon Magliozzi Devon Magliozzi Aubrie James, a member of CGSU, said women who do care work are especially undervalued. “We live under the insidious myth that care work is in our nature,” she said. “Unpaid or underpaid care work in hospitals, classrooms and day cares follows naturally from a long tradition of unpaid household labor.” While CGSU focuses on issues affecting graduate student teachers and researchers, James said the group “stands with the workers of Tompkins County to demand a fair and living wage for all.” More than 50 people came out to rally for a living wage Tuesday on the Ithaca Commons. (Devon Magliozzi/The Ithaca Voice) Many participants were in Ithaca for the UALE’s Northeast Summer School for Women in Unions and Worker Organizations, held this week at Cornell University. At the same time, the event called attention to how women are uniquely affected by low wages. According to the event’s news release, “A disproportionately large number of the professions that pay workers at or near the minimum wage are mainly staffed by women, and minimum wages that can’t cover costs of living (much less caring for children and family members) represent a systematic economic injustice.” Alisa Camp, a member of the Civil Service Employees Association, said, “It’s my problem and it’s your problem too, because poverty is a fundamental human problem.” “$10.40 an hour – what is that? That’s equivalent to four cups of Starbucks coffee,” she said. “But I think the real question is why doesn’t the minimum wage give single mothers enough money?” Kirchgessner said. “I’m a huge believer that anyone who works 40 hours a week should not be poor.” ITHACA, N.Y. — “Let Tompkins live,” dozens of demonstrators chanted on the Ithaca Commons on Tuesday afternoon. The rainy weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd of about 50, which was brought together to Rally for a Living Wage by the United Association for Labor Education, Tompkins County Workers’ Center and Cornell Graduate Students United. Pete Meyers, coordinator of the Tompkins County Workers’ Center, has long pushed for the county to adopt a living wage as its minimum wage. The Workers’ Center uses the AFCU’s biennial estimate as its touchstone. Meyers acknowledges, though, that there are questions that still need to be sorted out. “There are certain problem areas,” he said, when it comes to raising low wages. “The caregiving industry is one of the biggest ones we see.” If the Tompkins County Legislature approves a living wage as minimum wage, the New York State Legislature would still need to approve the measure. While policy cannot be changed at the local level alone, Kirchgessner said, “If we can’t do it at the local level, there’s no way we’ll get it at the state and national level.”center_img Tagged: ithaca, ithaca commons, living wage, rally, tompkins county (Devon Magliozzi/The Ithaca Voice) Meyers has organized the Tompkins County Minimum Wage Working Group to tackle such issues. The group is chaired by Legislator Anna Kelles and Sally Klingel, of the Scheinman Institute at Cornell’s ILR School, and includes members from local government, businesses and non-profit organizations. “We’re really doing this on a community basis,” Meyers said. King said the gap between the minimum wage and costs of living means, “People are living one paycheck or one unexpected expense away from being homeless, jobless and making a choice of whether to feed their families. … We must fight for the equality, dignity and sustainability for all working families.” According to Meyers, “The caregiving industry is really dominated by women workers, and it gets a lot of state and federal funding. That government funding is inadequate for a living wage.” That estimate does not take dependents, including children, into account. The AFCU calculates that child care for a preschool-aged child costs just under $13,000 a year in the area. For a full-time worker to cover child care costs for one child, that means earning an extra $6.25 an hour. Valerie King, who addressed the crowd as a member of the UALE, aimed to put the current minimum wage in perspective. State senate candidate Amanda Kirchgessner said she supports the efforts of the Workers’ Center and its partners. “This is a great show of solidarity,” she said. She said she does not think the fight for a living wage will be simple. She said she has heard concerns that if the minimum wage is increased, single mothers in particular could lose eligibility for some government programs. Speakers at the rally emphasized that poverty is an issue that affects everyone. The coalition sought to build support for a county-wide living wage of $15.11. Minimum wage in Tompkins County is currently set by the New York state legislature at $10.40. According to the Alternatives Federal Credit Union, $15.11 is the amount a person in the county without employer-provided health insurance must earn to meet basic needs like housing, food and heat.last_img read more
