Margaret Marshall, former chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, gave the homily at Trinity Church to honor the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision for marriage equality.[Trinity Church Boston] “Who am I to judge?” These words echoed repeatedly through the sermon given at Trinity Church in Boston by the Hon. Margaret Marshall, retired chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, at a choral Evensong in thanksgiving for marriage equality throughout the United States and throughout the Episcopal Church.Quoting Pope Francis’ now-famous remark, Marshall expanded it into a wry and moving refrain as she spoke on the judicial system’s role in protecting the rights of minorities, the “noisy, and messy and jagged” workings of democracy, and the command of faith to strive for justice.Marshall authored the 2003 decision in Goodridge vs. Department of Public Health, which declared that the Massachusetts Constitution prohibits the state from denying same-sex couples access to marriage. Reflecting on the court’s decision and the resulting political firestorm 12 years later, she offered a stirring witness to faith both in constitutional democracy and in the ideals of Christianity:“Argument and counter-argument, give and take, push and pull, election and defeat, try and try and try again: this is how democracy works. This is how justice works… it is not for the fainthearted. It takes sustained commitment over many years. It demands a belief that equality and justice and dignity, that freedom and inclusion and peace and prosperity for all, are worth fighting for. It demands courage.”Trinity Church Boston hosted the Evensong to mark the approach of the one-year anniversary of marriage equality in the United States and the Episcopal Church. Several hundred people, both Trinity parishioners and community members, filled the spacious historic church for a traditional service of choral Evensong sung by a full choir of adults and youth.The Rev. Samuel R. Lloyd III, rector of Trinity, presided and offered an opening welcome: “[The late Bishop of Massachusetts] Tom Shaw… told us that marriage equality was one way that we were being called to live more deeply into Christ’s ethic of love. So tonight, together, we reach into the heart of our own tradition for ancient words that tell the story of that saving love, and for the strength that helps us continue to make that love known in our own time – in, among and between every one of us, every single child of God’s, of every orientation, class, race, and gender identity.”In addition to the musical offerings — including a setting of E. E. Cummings’ poem “I Thank You God” by Eric Whitacre and an acapella rendition of “America the Beautiful”) – parishioners read prayers of thanksgiving. The celebration continued after the service with a wedding-cake reception.According to the Rev. Patrick Ward, associate rector for welcome, the service was originally conceived of in the immediate wake of the Supreme Court decision last year, but postponed out of a desire to do it carefully and well. “Then when the Episcopal Church decision came about on July 1 last year, we thought, you know, this is bigger than we could have anticipated. We thought it best to wait a year, to do this carefully and thoughtfully, and to bring really the best of our tradition to this service.”Having LGBT equality affirmed and celebrated within the context of their own faith community was deeply healing for some: “Growing up as I did… I didn’t personally have any interest in being part of any religious tradition, given how hostile religious communities were to gay people,” said Mark Kharas, minister for welcome and growth. “It’s very special for me to have a service for marriage equality that is specifically a religious service within our religious tradition.”And for those who are only too used to hearing Christianity equated with intolerance toward LGBT people, the service marked an opportunity to proclaim a commitment to equality and inclusion as part of the Christian faith. “A lot of what people see as Christians is not very nice,” said Frank Furnari, an event volunteer and member of Trinity. “So having an event like this — I definitely like that we are doing this and I definitely wanted to be a part of it.”At the close of her sermon, Marshall quoted the words of the vows taken and re-affirmed by baptized Episcopalians, saying, “We, you and I, are commanded by our faith to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being.” Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Submit a Press Release Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Comments (4) Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply Back to School 2019By Robert H. Tai, University of VirginiaCurious Kids is a series for children of all ages. If you have a question you’d like an expert to answer, send it to [email protected]’s a huge debate about homework and whether it helps kids learn during the school year. But everyone agrees that homework can take lots of time. The most commonly accepted guidelines recommend one hour for middle school and two hours for high school. However, I think this amount of time on homework every day can be too much.The nightly hour many middle schoolers spend on homework adds up to about 180 hours over a school year. That’s time that kids could be playing sports, reading books or just taking a break after a long day.It’s common for high school students to devote twice as much time, about two hours daily, to their homework. And some schools require much more homework. In some school systems, even kindergartners do some homework.Does making kids study in what could be their personal time pay off? Homework appears to work best when the teacher and students are clear about what it’s for and the assignments are worthwhile. While I do believe doing some homework is helpful, I don’t think it should be assigned unless it’s necessary.More time for homework leaves less time for basketball.Robert H. Tai, CC BY-SAMy research group and I found this out by examining survey responses of students. They told us how much time they spent doing homework, what grades they got and how they did on standardized tests.The evidence we found suggests that students who spend more time doing homework don’t necessarily get better grades. But it may help them get higher scores on the standardized tests that nearly all American public school students take. That is because doing more homework to practice things you know can help you get better and faster at doing those things.From what I’ve seen with my own students, those who seem to spend a lot of time on homework are usually struggling to understand what they are being asked to do. That could explain why devoting more time to homework doesn’t automatically improve grades.In these situations, I believe students would probably be better off learning the material in class with their teacher before going home and trying it on their own. One benefit is what happens when students get back this extra time after school: There’s more time for sports, music, books and friends.Everyone needs a break after a long day of work, after all. And that includes students.Hello, curious kids! Do you have a question you’d like an expert to answer?

Indiana Fuel Leaders Recognized for their Commitment to Ethanol
By Gary Truitt – Jun 1, 2016 SHARE Home Energy Indiana Fuel Leaders Recognized for their Commitment to Ethanol Indiana Fuel Leaders Recognized for their Commitment to Ethanol SHARE Indiana Corn Marketing Council recently recognized two Hoosier renewable energy leaders for their commitment to providing ethanol-blended fuel options to consumers across Indiana and beyond.ICMC President David Gottbrath (left) presents Mike and Ann Ackerman with an award recognizing Circle A fuels as the first Indiana fuel retailer to offer E15.Mike and Ann Ackerman of Circle A Food Mart and John DiMartini of The Andersons, Inc. were presented awards by ICMC President David Gottbrath at the 2016 Indiana Ethanol Forum in Indianapolis on May 19 to commend their support of ethanol and Indiana corn farmers.“Over the last several years, the corn checkoff has worked with fuel retailers across the state to add Flex Fuel or Blender Pumps to their stations – giving their customers the option of filling up with higher blends of ethanol, like E15, E30 and E85,” said Gottbrath, a farmer from Pekin, Ind. “Market development is a key function of the corn checkoff and our investment in supporting the ethanol industry is critical to the success of Indiana corn farmers. Mike and John have been valuable friends in efforts to develop the Indiana ethanol industry.”In 2015, Circle A became the first Indiana fuel retailer and convenience store operator to add E15 to their product mix under the leadership of Mike Ackerman and Paul Grammer. With ICMC grant funding, Circle A added both E15 and E85 to their Ferdinand, Ind. store, a high volume location located at the I-64 exit to Holiday World, and E15 to its Jasper, Ind. location.ICMC President David Gottbrath (right) presents John DiMartini with an award recognizing his efforts through The Andersons, Inc. to make E85 available throughout the United States.The Andersons, Inc. has become one of the leading E85 suppliers in the country by supplying product via truck to Indiana’s fuel retailers, as well as retailers throughout the United States. John DiMartini has been instrumental in these efforts. Bypassing fuel wholesalers and terminals with shipments directly from the ethanol plant allows fuel retailers to offer E85 to consumers at competitive prices. Through John’s efforts, The Andersons continues to open new markets and set new E85 sales records.“Supporting and growing the ethanol industry is vital to the success of Indiana corn farmers,” Gottbrath said. “And we applaud the efforts of companies, like Circle A and The Andersons, Inc., who are working hard to make ethanol-blended fuels available to consumers throughout Indiana and the country.”ICMC was a sponsor of the 2016 Indiana Ethanol Forum.

Certified Applicator Training and Free Lunch on Last Day of Indiana…
Home Indiana Agriculture News Certified Applicator Training and Free Lunch on Last Day of Indiana Farm… SHARE Facebook Twitter Certified Applicator Training and Free Lunch on Last Day of Indiana Farm ExpoIf you haven’t caught on to the theme in recent days, there are many new elements to this year’s Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo, formerly the Indiana-Illinois Farm Show. Another new element to this year’s show is that Purdue Extension will be providing Certified Applicator Training on the last day of the Expo, Thursday, Dec. 13.Boone County Extension Director Curt Emanuel said, “We have talked about doing this in the past and this spring when (HAT President) Gary Truitt reinvigorated the show after it was temporarily put on hold, I mentioned to him that we would be willing to put on a private pesticide applicator recertification program if he was interested. He kind of jumped at it.”He told HAT that it just makes sense to hold this training where farmers and other ag leaders will already be assembled.“This program is actually approved for three different types of credit: private applicator recertification, commercial certification hours, it’s approved for two of those for commercial applicators, and it is also approved for continuing education units for certified crop advisors.”There will be three different speakers for this training program. Purdue agronomist Jason Ackerson will go over basics of soil testing and how to grid your field in what Emanuel says is a refresher course for those who haven’t gone over it in a while. John Scott will cover drone applications for the farm, which he will also be doing in the Demonstration Zone over the course of the Expo.“Then Austin Pearson, Tipton County Ag Extension Educator, will be discussing how to use precision agriculture to comply with setback requirements that are present in the Indiana pesticide use law.”The program fee is $10, but no worries! Indiana Pork is sponsoring free lunch for Expo attendees that same day, Thursday, Dec. 13. You can see the full lineup of seminars and demonstrations at this link.

Freed French journalists set up support committee for still detained Pakistani colleague Khawar Mehdi Rizvi
RSF_en January 14, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freed French journalists set up support committee for still detained Pakistani colleague Khawar Mehdi Rizvi to go further April 21, 2021 Find out more News Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder News Two French journalists returned home to France after being allowed to leave Pakistan and immediately launched an international support committee for their still detained Pakistani colleague Khawar Mehdi Rizvi.Marc Epstein and Jean-Paul Guilloteau of the weekly L’Express told a press conference in Paris that they would not rest until the Pakistan authorities released their colleague.”Three of us were involved in reporting. Now there are only two of us (…) None of us know what has happened to our colleague and friend Khawar Mehdi,” said Epstein. “This is happening in a country that claims to apply the law of habeas corpus, by which no-one can be held for more than 48 hours without being charged. We are beside ourselves with worry. We don’t know where the man is, what is being done to him nor what he is accused of. It is completely unacceptable.””If Pakistan is a country that respects the rule of law we call upon it to demonstrate that fact,” he added.Epstein gave details of the reporting which he said removed any blame from Rizvi for pictures found by police that they had claimed were faked. He said he had taken the images himself for the magazine’s Internet site. “Khawar Mehdi had nothing to do with these images, which were not faked, ” he said. “At no time was our reporting intended to tarnish the image of Pakistan. We were only interested in showing the reality that is known to everyone: activity by armed Taliban groups at the Afghan border,” he said.The international support committee is made up of journalists from Pakistan, from the French media, France 2, TF1, Le Monde, Libération, L’Express, the US dailies, The New York Times and Chicago Tribune and Reporters Without Borders.Rizvi is still being held in secret by Pakistani security services in Islamabad, where he is feared to be under considerable pressure. The security services denied before the Sindh High Court on 13 January that they were holding the journalist, despite successive statements by President Pervez Musharraf, from the interior minister and the spokesman for the foreign ministry, who all said he was detained for “investigation”.The three journalists were arrested on 16 December 2003 in Karachi, just after completing a report on Taliban groups at the border with Afghanistan.

Suspect arrested, second at-large for firing assault rifle at Arizona state troopers: Officials
Arizona Department of Public SafetyBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(PHOENIX) — One suspect has been arrested and a second is still at-large in an ambush-style shooting of Arizona troopers on Thursday, officials said.The suspect in custody allegedly fired multiple rounds at DPS detectives in Phoenix with an assault rifle, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.The shooting occurred just before 9 a.m. local time on Thursday, authorities said, as troopers were in the area to serve a body warrant on a wanted subject. A trooper was in an unmarked car in visible police attire when the alleged gunman approached in a silver four-door Infiniti, Arizona Director Col. Heston Silbert said during a press briefing Thursday evening.“There was no question, it was an ambush,” Silbert said. “He was identifiable as a police officer.”As the trooper apparently started to exit his car, the suspected gunman allegedly exited the passenger side of his car with an AK-47 and “immediately opened up and opened fire on him,” Silbert said.A nearby trooper arrived on the scene, and both returned fire, he said.The driver fled the scene, leaving the alleged shooter behind, authorities said.Neither the troopers nor the alleged gunman were injured, authorities said.The suspect in custody was identified by authorities as a 17-year-old male. The troopers found the assault rifle near the alleged shooter, Arizona DPS spokesman Capt. Jesse Galvez said during a press briefing after the shooting.Arizona DPS released images of the car that the gunman was allegedly a passenger in, describing it as a 2013 Infiniti model G-37 with custom wheels and a temporary plate.DPS detectives were still looking for the driver and car as of Thursday evening.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Code on staff monitoring leaves industry confused
Employers have three months to push for clear rules on monitoring staff e-mails and telephone calls following the publication of a draft code of practice last week.The architect of the code, which covers telephone and e-mail monitoring of staff and the use of personal data, has admitted it will add to confusion among HR professionals.But employers can challenge the code and ensure the final rules make it clear when and how they can monitor staff.Employers have complained that the code seems to contradict regulations released earlier this month giving the green light to monitor staff (News, 10 October).Assistant Commissioner David Smith, who drafted the code, said he had tried to set out the provisions of the Data Protection Act clearly. “We cannot lay down any hard and fast rules which apply to all businesses. I accept that there is potential for confusion, but we are anticipating a lot of feedback on the draft code and we expect to make changes,” he said.The 63-page draft has been criticised by industry for being too complex and too unwieldy in the light of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, which comes into force on 24 October.Smith stressed that employers must first ensure they are satisfying the terms of the RIP Act. “If they don’t do that they’re not off the starting blocks,” he said.The CBI’s head of e-business, Nigel Hickson, said the Data Protection Commissioner should have held back publication once the RIP laws were changed to avoid confusion.”I think it is well-intentioned, but some areas are impractical for employers.” By Paul Dinsdale Related posts:No related photos.
