Anglican Consultative Council Digest: May 2 and 3

first_img Submit a Press Release Rector Bath, NC Rector Martinsville, VA Members of the Anglican Consultative Council pose May 2 outside their meeting room in the Gold Coast Hotel for a group photo. The ACC is composed of bishops, clergy and laypeople, making it the communion’s most representative body. The Episcopal Church’s ACC members are Oklahoma Bishop Edward J. Konieczny, the Rev. Michael Barlowe and Rosalie Ballentine of the Diocese of the Virgin Islands. (Click on the photo to enlarge the view.) Of the 99 members present at the 17th meeting of the ACC, 69 are male and 30 are female. More than half are new members. Fifty-six are ordained and 43 are lay. Of the 56 ordained members, nine are women. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Hong Kong] During the Anglican Consultative Council’s 17th meeting here, a number of things happen. In addition to Episcopal News Service’s other coverage, here are some additional highlights from May 2 and 3.New ACC youth members pose questions to three bishopsCanadian Diocese of Edmonton Bishop Jane Alexander answers a question May 2 from two of the new youth members of the Anglican Consultative Council, while Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, center, and Southern Africa Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, far right, listen. Youth members Isaac Beach of New Zealand, far left, and Basetsana Makena of South Africa, second from left, posed the questions. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFor the first time, this ACC meeting includes eight youth members from five regions across the Anglican Communion. The communion’s standing committee agreed to a request from ACC-16 to allow such membership.On May 2, youth members Isaac Beach of New Zealand and Basetsana Makena of South Africa conducted a panel discussion with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Southern Africa Archbishop Thabo Makgoba and Canadian Diocese of Edmonton Bishop Jane Alexander, posing questions the two said they distilled from conversations with their other youth colleagues.Makena led off the session asking if the three were satisfied with the fact that the youth members plus three other young people who serve as province-specific members make up 14 percent of the council.“We’re a work in progress,” Makgoba said, adding that the church needs to diversify its leadership structure to include more youth and women as well as other minorities and races. Alexander said that, while she was not satisfied with the percentage, “it’s amazing to see the youth delegates participating fully in the life of the ACC … but in terms of us really hearing that voice and that passion, I don’t think we’re there yet.”Welby cautioned that, in the Church of England and probably elsewhere in the communion, “we think youth involvement in the church means sitting on committees,” while true involvement in the church is about “people going out and changing the world.” He said he is wary of “ending up with a series of quotas, which would mean that we have identity politics,” but when the effort to change the world only “looks like we’re going out as a bunch of middle-aged white men, then we need to ask ourselves some serious questions about why we’re neglecting the vast majority of the church.”However, Welby said, “simply putting people on more committees is necessarily not a good answer to the problem.” What empowers young people, he said, is “the liberation of people of all ages in ministry and witness and transformation and activism in the right sense, that is being active in the service of Christ, and of deepening religious life.”ACC-17 members continue their work on resolutionsCouncil members passed eight resolutions on May 3 from a current list of 24.The council does not actually vote on resolutions, but rather the members assent. The chair of each session asks the members, “Are you content to give your general assent to this resolution?” The chair does not ask for dissenting voices.Those attending ACC-17 were encouraged to wear black on May 2. The Anglican Communion supports the World Council of Churches’ Thursdays in Black campaign. The effort urges people “to declare you are part of the global movement resisting attitudes and practices that permit rape and violence.” The organization notes, “Often black has been used with negative racial connotations. In this campaign black is used as a color of resistance and resilience.” Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe resolutions agreed to on May 3 were for the following:* calling for continued support of the colleges and universities of the Anglican Communion;* encouraging networks to improve theological education in the Anglican Communion;* affirming support of the International Anglican Women’s Network and women’s ministries;* recognizing that there is a global climate emergency, encouraging member churches to make the Fifth Mark of Mission (To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth) “a living testament to our faith,” and encouraging the Lambeth Conference 2020 to be as environmentally sustainable as possible;* calling for work to develop an Anglican Health Network;* affirming the work of the Anglican Alliance and encouraging provinces to support it;* commending the emphasis on intentional discipleship and disciple-making in the Anglican Communion Office’s strategic plan and asking the Mission Department to develop a resource hub “to support and equip the culture change in the communion towards intentional sharing and living a Jesus-shaped life”; and* encouraging member churches to invest in pathways to education and employment for young laypeople.ACC members passed five resolutions on May 1, four dealing with welcoming and commending for study statements from some of the communion’s ecumenical dialogues and one concerning safe-church practices. The actions on May 1 and May 3 leave 11 resolutions for May 4, the last day of business sessions for ACC-17. The meeting ends with local parish visits during the morning of May 5 and a joint closing Eucharist that afternoon.ACC members pray over ‘public statements’ of concernOn May 3, council members also prayed about each of six so-called “public statements” and then spent time in group prayer for the six together. The statements, which could be submitted by any member, are in Archbishop of Hong Kong and ACC Chair Paul Kwong’s words, “expressions of solidarity for particularly concerning or troubling situations around our communion.” They are not the same as formal resolutions.Full ENS coverage of the 17th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council is available here.The public statements included ones that:* express sorrow for and support of Sri Lankans following the Easter terrorist attacks, and call on the government, civil society and people of faith to work together to counter any escalating tensions and promote the safety of all citizens of and visitors to Sri Lanka;* encourage Anglicans to pray for the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution on the Conflict in South Sudan; for forgiveness, reconciliation and peaceful coexistence among the South Sudanese people, and for support for relief and rehabilitation for internally displaced persons and refugees;* declare solidarity with the Sudanese people, call for a peaceful transition to civilian democratic government and the protection of religious freedom especially for the Christian community, urge the international community to support refugees and internally displaced people and their communities, and ask Anglicans to pray for peace and the empowerment of the vulnerable;* support peace on the Korean peninsula;* lament continuing tensions between Pakistan and India, give thanks that hostilities between the countries were de-escalated in February, implore both nations to pursue peace and encourage the growth of mutuality and trust in the body of Christ for the Christian churches in each country; and* lament the natural and humanitarian disaster caused by Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, and call on Anglicans to send messages of solidarity to the people of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe and to offer practical support through the appropriate relief agencies.Council voting on Standing Committee membersThe primates on the communion’s Standing Committee are, left to right, Archbishop Philip Freier (The Anglican Church of Australia), Archbishop Paul Kwong (ACC chair, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui), Archbishop Thabo Makgoba (The Anglican Church of Southern Africa), Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Archbishop Julio Murray Thompson (Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America), Archbishop Suheil Dawani (The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem & The Middle East) and Archbishop Richard Clarke (The Church of Ireland). Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe ACC voted May 3 from among seven nominees for three open seats on the communion’s 15-member Standing Committee.The council used a secret ballot ranked-voting method in which each member ranked the candidates in order of choice. The nominees were the Rev. Inamar Correa de Souza (The Episcopal Church of Brazil), Joyce Haji Liundi (The Anglican Church of Tanzania), Basetsana Makena (The Anglican Church of South Africa), the Very Rev. Hosam Naoum (The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem & The Middle East), Carlos Romero (Anglican Church of Chile), the Archbishop Prem Chand Singh (The Church of North India) and Fe’iloakitau Kaho Tevi (The Anglican Church Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia).As the voting process was about to be explained, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby raised a point of order, noting that the fact that materials about the nominees, the process and the ballot were in English, thus “insisting that [members] use English when either they may not read or understand English, or it’s their second or third or even fourth language.”“Thank you, Your Grace,” responded Darren Oliver, the ACC’s legal adviser, suggesting that the council pause after his explanation of the process so that those who need it can have a “more detailed explanation or translation, if necessary.”There are no official interpreters at the meeting, which is being conducted in English. Earlier in the week, Chief Operating Officer David White acknowledged that “for a very large number of people here, English is not your first language.” Most documents are available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, something that was not true at ACC meetings in the past.However, White said, it would have cost the communion office $10,000 to $15,000 per person to provide interpretation services to those who need it. “We wanted to be able to offer translation service for everybody who needed a certain language translation in order to better understand our business,” he said. “The reality is there are so relatively few of you who have told us that you are not able to follow the meeting that that became financially impossible.”White said those members were asked to “bring somebody with you and we will deal with translations that way.”The election results will be announced the morning of May 4, ACC-17’s last business day.The current ACC members on the Standing Committee are Archbishop Paul Kwong (ACC chair, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui), Maggie Swinson (ACC vice chair, The Church of England), Bishop Jane Alexander (Anglican Church of Canada), Alistair Dinnie (The Scottish Episcopal Church), Jeroham Melendez (The Anglican Church in Central America) and Bishop Joel Waweru (The Anglican Church of Kenya).Five primates are elected by their peers to sit on the Standing Committee: Archbishop Richard Clarke (The Church of Ireland), Archbishop Suheil Dawani (The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem & The Middle East) Archbishop Philip Freier (The Anglican Church of Australia), Archbishop Thabo Makgoba (The Anglican Church of Southern Africa) and Archbishop Julio Murray Thompson (Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America).

Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format. Mike hosts a daily talk radio show in the 2 PM hour called “Afternoons with Mike”, talking to local pastors and newsmakers.  In Orlando, The Shepherd is heard on WIWA, AM 1270.   In addition to his broadcast experience, Mike spent 36 years in full-time ministry as a pastor and worship leader.  As a guitarist, Mike performs at concerts, restaurants, private parties, etc. He is married to Cindy, the father of four grown children and grandfather to seven grandchildren. The Anatomy of Fear InspirationBy Mike GillandI think about it every year – a storm that was unlike any I had ever experienced.June 8, 1982 had started off like any other spring day in Evansville, Indiana.  The sun was shining, and the temperatures were pleasant.  What was about to come was unthinkable, and no one was ready for it.At that time, I was the operations manager for a Christian radio station and my boss was in town for meetings.  We were on our way to a fancy restaurant that was situated on the top floor of an eighteen story building, the tallest structure in town.  While we were driving, the weather was changing… rapidly. By the time we got to the downtown area, I had a clear view to the west, and what I saw coming was downright frightening. Not just one tornado, but a “mother cloud” of 9 tornadoes was about to strike our city’s downtown.I had spent years as a TV weatherman, studying clouds under the supervision of the friendly crew at the National Weather Service, and I knew something bad was about to hit. We were mid-step walking out of the elevator when the power suddenly failed – all lights in the restaurant went dark.I quickly rushed to the host and asked him where I could make an emergency phone call (yes, this was BEFORE cell phones!). He would not let me into the room adjacent to us that held the guest phone. I appealed, but he said I couldn’t use it, that it wasn’t safe… and in the next instant, I understood why he hesitated.You see, that room and all of the other dining rooms in this building, had giant glass walls that gave a panoramic view of the city.  Had I been in that room using the phone, it would have been very bad – for in an instant, the storm blew out the entire side wall of the restaurant. Millions of pieces of broken tempered glass blew in, and the powerful force of 9 tornadoes was now blowing through those rooms, and literally shaking the building.What a surreal moment – people were screaming, and most of us were praying. I really thought the entire building was going down. But then, in ten minutes time, it was over. And so was our lunch meeting.We began the long descent down, walking through the darkened stairways of that building, finally reaching ground level. What we walked out to looked like a war zone. The destruction was massive. Sign boards were blown down, street lights broken, trees were pushed over, windows blasted out. Debris was everywhere. All power was gone for much of the city, as the overhead power lines were no match for 200 MPH winds. One radio station tower was brought down, twisted like a pretzel.Looking back on that day, one thing that has always amazed me is this – the speed at which everything changed. It came on us in an instant.The Bible has a couple of verses that take that concept into our spiritual walk. One passage is 1 Peter 4:12, where Peter warns us, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.”  We shouldn’t be surprised that storms come. We have been duly warned that they will occur.The second deals with our response to sudden bad news. I particularly like the NIV’s reading of Psalm 112:7 – speaking of the righteous man, it says, “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”  When the news comes that we didn’t expect, we can hang onto this promise. We will have our heart held in steadfast trust.Life’s storms will come, and sometimes quite suddenly. But His love and grace will see us through to calmer days.

Located in the exclusive neighborhood of Santa Ana Oriental in the north of Bogota, this 711m2 home was designed to fit the client. Its architecture in exposed concrete seeks to purify its elements and its volume responds to the siting according to the orientation of its boundaries, forming two volumes articulated by the access area transparent to the rear garden. We have designed the social area with a greater height and a vault that integrates in a single space the living and dining room, all related and connected to the main garden. The construction was completed in August 2013.Save this picture!First Floor Plan+ 25The entrance is up an exterior staircase with concrete steps cantilevered from a retaining wall, which leads to the front door made of rusty steel. The interior design is presented so clearly and generously that it creates a pleasant feeling of familiarity with the environment: from the main entrance, a space that articulates the two cores of the dwelling, is the kitchen, social area and services on one side and the bedroom area on the other.Save this picture!© Rodrigo DávilaThe garden, which is right across the entrance, naturally takes center stage mixing with the social area, master bedroom and family room. After the first impression the details appear, as defined by the materials and interiors, raising a great curiosity about every corner.Save this picture!Corte PerspectivadoThe program included a double living and dining room, kitchen, service areas and guest bathroom, and a private area with four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, a family room and a multipurpose study that can be isolated or opened to the social or the private area. Each of these two cores are parallel to a different boundary, a fact that brings dynamism and forces the house away from an orthogonal structure; therefore the main access becomes a joint that connects the two cores in a single volume.Save this picture!© Rodrigo DávilaWood, rusty steel and pearl gray concrete are highlights in the project. In particular, the latter acquires an unusual role required by the owners, who in a happy coincidence of ideas with the architects wanted to expose the structural system, and the pearl gray concrete accentuates originality and elegance both to the exterior and to the interior of the house.Save this picture!© Rodrigo DávilaOn interior walls, paintings stand strongly with the exposed concrete as background material. After making the decision to display the structure clearly, we decided to give spatial richness to the social area and rid it of supporting elements, so the architects designed a vault with a 12 meter span without any pillars or columns, only exposed temples hold both sides of the vaulted ceiling. In this space that is fully open to the garden, a fireplace separates the dining from the living room and gives them both an identity. To protect the interior from the sun and rain, large eaves carefully designed in exposed concrete are part of a clean architecture free of ornamental elements.

Police ‘unlawfully’ raid house party

first_imgPolice officers who entered a student house during a party last Saturday have been accused of acting unlawfully by a leading expert on drugs law. A team of eight officers was patrolling in Cowley at around midnight when their drugs sniffer dog indicated that it could smell a substance in the house. The officers then entered the house searching for drugs and formally searched one student. No drugs were found on guests or in any of the rooms. The sergeant in charge of the team said on Tuesday that “the team were given permission to enter the house along with the drugs dog.” However, the host of the party, a second-year student at St Hilda’s, said that she told the officers that they were not welcome to come in. She also said that she felt “victimized.” “He asked if he had permission to enter the house and I said no,” she said, “that’s pretty clear.” She says that police entered despite being asked not to. “I said no, but they came forward anyway,” she added. By law, police officers can only enter a home without a search warrant in very specific cases, such as if the property is controlled by an arrested person, or if somebody they wish to arrest is inside. In all other cases, the police are bound by Code B of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) 1984, which requires consent to be gained in writing from the occupier of a residence “if practicable.” The student who held the party claims that she was not asked to provide any kind of written consent. She also says that she was not informed of the proposed extent of the search or warned that anything seized may be produced in evidence. These are both requirements under PACE Code B. The sergeant leading the search said that the dog indicated one of the party guests “was either carrying or had recently been carrying drugs”. However, when he was searched, nothing was found. The guest, an English student, denied that he had been near any substances. “I wasn’t carrying any drugs and I hadn’t been in contact with any that night or for a long time. I’m not quite sure why the dog made that suggestion,” he said. An expert on drug detection with dogs said that the search “appears to have been unlawful.” Amber Marks, a lecturer in law at King’s College London and expert in olfactory surveillance, said, “The fact that no cannabis was found shows how unreasonable it is for the police to rely on canine intelligence.” She continued, “The matter should be investigated and it sounds as if the occupier of the premises should make a formal complaint against the police. It is important to ensure that the police keep within the limits imposed upon them by the law. “This is one of the worst cases I’ve heard of.” The party’s host also questioned the efficacy of the drugs dog. “The dog jumped on [the guest who was searched] and he doesn’t even smoke at all. The dog clearly doesn’t have a clue,” she said. She also accused the police of heavy-handedness. “There were four to six of them. The ones at the back were trooping in but didn’t seem to know what they were doing. “It was ridiculous. One of the female officers said that they had so many people because they had to protect themselves. Do we look like junkies? They didn’t apologise for coming in.” The sergeant who led the search said he was satisfied that the premises were entered “lawfully and with consent.” A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said that “Police officers do have powers to further search and detain once in a property if they have reason to believe drugs are on the premises. In this case they did as the drugs dog made an indication that a person was, or had recently, been in possession of drugs. “We do take complaints about our service seriously and do have a proper process for dealing with them. If anyone was not satisfied with the police action on this evening they should contact Thames Valley Police Quality of Service Unit.” House searches: Your rights The rights of police to enter a private residence are governed by Code B of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Police can enter your house: – If they have a search warrant – If they wish to make an arrest – If you or another occupier has been arrested Otherwise, police may only enter with your consent. In this case, officers should, if practicable: – Inform you that you are not obliged to consent – Specify the proposed purpose and extent of the search, such as which parts of your house they intend to enter – Warn you that anything seized may be produced in evidence – Obtain your consent in writing Police are excepted from these rules in certain circumstances. If in doubt, you should comply with police and register a complaint at a later stage.last_img read more
