Esto último incluía “centenares” de conversos en Etiopía y Argelia, un programa de evangelización y renovación espiritual en Melanesia y un aumento en el número de jóvenes que se unían a la Iglesia de Inglaterra.“No dejen que nadie les engañe que, debido a nuestra crisis, el espíritu del Señor no se mueve”, dijo. El Espíritu del Señor se mueve aun más debido a la crisis. Creo que se moverá aún más si somos capaces de concentrarnos en el discipulado”.Sus comentarios se produjeron durante la hora que dedicó a la amplificación de su informe escrito sobre su labor desde la reunión del CCA-16 en Lusaka en 2014, y sus reflexiones sobre el estado de la Comunión.Idowu-Fearon les dijo a los miembros del CCA que los últimos tres años “me han abierto los ojos a un grave problema dentro de nuestra Comunión: la ignorancia”.Afirmó que el problema es doble, comenzando con la “ignorancia deliberada”, la cual dijo que ocurre cuando un obispo o un primado (el líder episcopal de una de las 40 provincias de la Comunión) “pretende que no sabe” lo que significa ser una iglesia anglicana.“Y luego hay ignorancia como resultado de la falta de conocimiento”, dijo Idowu-Fearon, añadiendo que “dentro de un buen número de nuestros colegios y seminarios teológicos, ni siquiera se enseña anglicanismo; donde se enseña, no es anglicanismo, es anglicanismo hecho a la medida”. Los diferentes contextos provinciales significan que “el anglicanismo tiene muchos rostros, pero hay cosas básicas”, afirmó él, particularmente la eclesiología anglicana, es decir, la comprensión anglicana de la Iglesia.La cobertura completa de ENS de la 17ª. reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano puede encontrarse aquí.“Esta es una de la razones principales de la crisis a que nos enfrentamos hoy dentro de esta Comunión”, dijo el Secretario General.Idowu-Fearon retó al CCA a que ayudara respondiendo la pregunta “¿cómo combatimos la ignorancia que está devorándonos y creando mayores divisiones dentro de la Comunión?”Algunas provincias siguen la política anglicana en que obispos, clérigos y laicos debaten, “pero en buen número de nuestras provincias y diócesis, particularmente en el sur global, no hay debates” o cuando hay debates, no están bien informados, apuntó.Pidiendo perdón de cualquiera que pudiera ofenderse, el Secretario General dijo “ustedes creerían que somos una Iglesia [Católica] Romana, donde las decisiones se toman y se transmiten hacia abajo”.“¿De qué manera”, les preguntó Idowu-Fearon a los miembros del CCA, “ustedes quieren que combatamos esta ignorancia?”A principios de su informe, el Secretario General había pedido consejo respecto a cómo el arzobispo de Cantórbery puede “extender su ministerio sin convertirse en un papa”.Cuando empezó la sesión de la tarde, Idowu-Fearon subió al podio para decirle al Consejo que le había garantizado al Padre Anthony Currer, el observador catolicorromano en la reunión que “algo que dije de manera informal, pero seriamente” no “significaba menoscabar a la Iglesia Católica Romana, particularmente la posición del Papa”. El Secretario General dijo que Currer aceptó sus excusas, e Idowu-Fearon pidió lo mismo del CCA.“Lo que dije era serio. No somos una Iglesia. Somos una Comunión de 40 iglesias —hasta ahora. “Por tanto, no tenemos una curia y no tenemos algo semejante a un papa. Eso es lo que dije. Eso no quiere decir que nuestra política sea mejor que la política catolicorromana”.Una advertencia de cismaEl secretario de la Comunión Anglicana Josiah Idowu-Fearon presentó un apasionado informe ante el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano el 29 de abril sobre su labor desde la reunión del CCA-16 en Lusaka en 2014 y sus reflexiones sobre el estado de la Comunión. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La advertencia de Idowu-Fearon acerca de un posible cisma en la Comunión Anglicana se produjo mientras él discutía acerca de la Conferencia Global del Futuro Anglicano (GAFCON por su sigla en inglés), la organización de 11 años de existencia que dice se formó en 2008 cuando “la transigencia moral, el error doctrinal y el colapso del testimonio bíblico en partes de la Comunión Anglicana” habían alcanzado un nivel crítico.El secretario general dijo al CCA que “la pregunta es ¿cómo debemos responder a GAFCON?”.Afirmó que “el Señor me ha dado este puesto para plantarme y hablarle la verdad al poder” y en consecuencia él intentaría esa respuesta.Idowu-Fearon dijo que él y el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby acogen el compromiso de GAFCON con la renovación de la Iglesia  y orarán por esa labor.“La dificultad surge cuando GAFCON se involucra con las estructuras de la Comunión de una manera que causa confusión y una posible división”, expresó él, partiendo de la decisión del grupo de formar redes ministeriales. La Comunión tiene 10 redes temáticas que abordan y perfilan varios asuntos y áreas de interés de la Comunión Anglicana. Las acciones de GAFCON no tienen por objeto llenar un vacío en la obra de la Comunión, Idowu-Fearon.El Secretario General dijo que la “Carta a las iglesias” que el grupo envió en 2018, contiene algunos comentarios “lamentables” acerca de Welby y la Conferencia de Lambeth 2020.Idowu-Fearon dijo que él tenía una dificultad con el llamado que aparece en la carta “para que algunos  sean invitados a la Conferencia de Lambeth como plenos participantes no siendo claramente miembros de la Comunión, y por el boicot a la Conferencia de Lambeth y otras reuniones de los Instrumentos debido a desacuerdos con algunas de las provincias”.Añadió que Welby está trabajando con “los miembros de su equipo” para encontrar “una manera de escapar a este dilema”. Sin embargo, el pidió la ayuda del CCA “para evitar un cisma dentro de la Comunión.Advertencia sobre la economíaIdowu-Fearon dijo que el trabajo de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana está económicamente limitado. Más tarde en el día, David White, el director de operaciones de la Comunión, dijo al CCA que la labor bosquejada en un plan estratégico de seis años que los miembros solicitaron en la última reunión en 2016 podía potencialmente al menos duplicar el actual envío anual a la oficina de £2,.0-2,5 millones ($2,6-$3,2 millones).El Secretario General dijo que “dos provincias mantienen funcionando a esta Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana [así como a nuestros] ministerios dentro de la Comunión”. Él no dijo qué provincias. Su informe escrito decía que esas dos provincias contribuían con el 67 por ciento.Sin embargo, históricamente, la Iglesia de Inglaterra y la Iglesia Episcopal han sido las dos mayores contribuyentes de lo que se conoce como el Presupuesto Interanglicano. La Convención General ha presupuestado $1.150.000 como su contribución [en el trienio] 2019-2021  (véase la partida 412 aquí). El Secretario General dijo en su informe escrito que el 94 por ciento proviene de 10 provincias.“Hay provincias que, desde 2011, no han pagado un centavo como parte de su responsabilidad económica con la Comunión”, le dijo Idowu-Fearon al Consejo. Él no nombró a esas provincias.El Secretario General solicitó el consejo del CCA acerca de qué hacer respecto a esas provincias que “pueden [pagar] pero son económicamente irresponsables”.Tanto Idowu-Fearon como White dijeron que la oficina de la Comunión comenzará a mirar fuentes de recaudación de fondos más allá de las provincias, tales como Sociedad de la Rosa Náutica de la Comunión Anglicana e instituciones que conceden subvenciones.“Quiero retar a los miembros de las provincias que no están siendo económicamente responsables. Quiero retarles a que hablen con sus obispos, a que hablen con sus primados respecto a ser económicamente responsables”, afirmó.El CCA está programado para oír más acerca de finanzas el 4 de mayo y considerar una nueva propuesta para fijar el nivel de compromisos económicos de las provincias.Después del almuerzo del 29 de abril, los miembros del CCA dedicaron 20 minutos en sus mesas a debatir el informe de Idowu-Fearon. Ellos presentaron resúmenes por escrito de sus reacciones y recomendaciones.Lea más al respectoLa historia del CCA se encuentra aquí.La cobertura permanente de ENS al CCA se encuentra aquí.La cobertura del Servicio de Noticias de la Comunión Anglicana [Anglican Communion News Service] se encuentra aquí.Se envían mensajes de Twitter a través del hashtag  #ACC17HK.– La Rda.

City Council votes 5-0 to accept COPS grant

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter $625,000 award allows APD to hire five additional officersThe Apopka City Council voted 5-0 yesterday to accept a federal grant to hire five additional officers for the Apopka Police Department. The grant is being offered through the 2016 COPS Hiring Program (CHP). The estimated amount of Federal funds to be awarded over the three year grant period is $625,000; the local match to the City of Apopka will be $339,800 over the same period.The APD was already scheduled to hire five additional officers in the 2016-17 budget, but the CHP grant is in addition to those new hires. APD Chief Michael McKinley said the additional officers could be absorbed into future plans to increase the APD police force closer to a goal of three officers per 1,000 residents. Currently the APD is at 2.36 per 1,000.“We are excited to be able to continue to provide the level of service the community deserves,” said McKinley. “The department has been falling behind due to the growth within the city of Apopka. The five officers the council approved in this budget, along with the five additional officers we were able to get with the Federal grant, will allow us to continue to serve the community at a high level.”According to McKinley’s presentation to the City Council last week, the CHP award recipients must retain all sworn officer positions funded under the 2016 CHP award for a minimum of 12 months following the 36-month Federal funding period.  The retained positions must be added to the law enforcement budget with local funds, over and above the number of locally-funded positions that would have existed in the absence of the award.  Award recipients may not reduce their locally funded number of sworn officer positions during the three-year CHP award period as a direct result of receiving CHP funding.  Under CHP, the non-supplanting requirement means that an award recipient receiving CHP funds to hire a new officer position must hire the additional position on or after the official award start date, above its current budgeted (funded) level of sworn officer positions.APD Captain Randall Fernandez pointed out the forward-looking strategy Apopka will need during this growth phase.“The Mayor and City Council members have been very supportive of the police department and have continued to invest in the safety and security of the citizens of Apopka. These grant positions, along with the city’s leadership commitment, will ensure the department is poised to handle current and future needs of the citizens.”last_img read more

North Manchester’s MPS Egg Farms Keeping Up With Strong Demand

We were able to absorb a lot of what the demand was in that early period.”Krouse says the majority of their eggs are slated for grocery stores, so they were spared from having to deal with major supply chain shifts that some companies that sell primarily to restaurants had to endure.The signs at grocery stores limiting egg purchases are now gone, so how is demand now?“I think a lot of people found eggs to be a great, easy source of protein for them and their families as they were stuck inside together. So, demand stayed pretty strong, around 30% higher than normal, for about two months. So, now we’re about back to seasonal averages.”Krouse says they’ve learned a lot in the past few months.“And we’re thinking about how we can be ready should coronavirus spike again. What things can we do to have the right inventory, have the right flexibility in communication, so that we can get through whatever might happen next.”Krouse believes egg consumption will remain high going forward.“You know, it’s such a perfectly ‘on-trend’ food with respect to being a great complete nutrient, a complete protein, a whole food, no artificial ingredients obviously, that it just matches so many things that consumers are looking for, so it’s a win on all of those respects.”MPS Egg Farms is the 8th largest egg producer in the United States.

“Disgraceful” failure to identify those responsible for newspaper editor’s murder three months ago

By on June 12, 2021

first_imgNews July 15, 2020 Find out more The Sunday Leader, now being edited by his brother, Lal Wickrematunga, has continued to be subjected to pressure from government circles since his murder. A significant loss of advertising income is now threatening its economic survival. April 8, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Disgraceful” failure to identify those responsible for newspaper editor’s murder three months ago Wickrematunga’s murder in the capital marked a dramatic escalation in press freedom violations in Sri Lanka and Reporters Without Borders – which is a member of the International Mission for Press Freedom in Sri Lanka – will continue to insist that it is not left unpunished. Reporters Without Borders has gathered information from various sources that supports the theory that the Sri Lankan authorities are blocking the investigation into the murder of Sunday Leader editor Lasantha Wickrematunga in Colombo on 8 January, exactly three months ago today. Government officials, including Keheliya Rambukwella, said at the end of January that President Mahinda Rajapaksa would announce “very important details” about the murder in February. But since then, there has been nothing to confirm the existence of a political will to solve the case. Wickrematunga’s family and colleagues have been forced to conclude that the authorities have no interest in arresting either the perpetrators or instigators. Sri LankaAsia – Pacific The police announced the arrest of a suspect but it was just a passer-by who stole Wickrematunga’s mobile phone from the scene of the murder. At the start of this month, a court ordered that this suspect continue to be held until 16 April. In an interview for an international TV station, Wickrematunga’s widow said he had written several times to the police inspector general to tell him about the repeated threats and to request protection. The police ignored his requests. “Lasantha always said that if he was killed, it would be by the government (…) Our reports about the suffering of the civilian population did not sit well with the patriotism of the military.”The authorities have made contradictory and in some cases defamatory comments about Wickrematunga. The president’s brother, defence minister Gotabaya Rajapaksa, said in an interview for a foreign TV station: “Who is Lasantha? A tabloid publisher. Why is the world worried about one man? He criticized everybody. So everybody had a reason to kill him.” He went on to make similar comments to the Australian TV station SBS: “He has antagonised so many people.

Call for release of newspaper editor who has completed half of 10-month sentence

first_img Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources to go further News EcuadorAmericas Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of newspaper editor Milton Chacaguasay Flores, who has completed half of a 10-month sentence for “insulting” a judge and could therefore be freed on good behaviour. The owner and editor of La Verdad, a weekly based in the southwestern city of Machala, Chacaguasay was convicted on appeal on 15 November 2008.“We urge the judicial authorities to rule in favour of his release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This case highlights the need to decriminalise press offences. Jailing journalists does not redress defamation, does not help to protect society and does not protect the media against abuse of the law. This legislation must be amended.”Press offences continue to be punishable by imprisonment in Ecuador, unlike much of the western hemisphere where the general trend is towards decriminalisation in line with article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights and the jurisprudence set by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.The complaint against Chacaguasay was brought by judge Silvio Castillo over a September 2007 article about alleged “illegal enrichment” by an unnamed judge. A lower court acquitted him in May 2008 after he demonstrated that neither he nor the newspaper were responsible for the article, which was contained in a free insert.Castillo won his case on appeal last November. The ten-month jail sentence was passed by the same court that had previously sentenced Chacaguasay to eight months in prison in February 2008 for allegedly insulting a leader of the Social Christian Party by linking him to corruption.
