first_img Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Youth Minister Lorton, VA March 26, 2012 at 6:50 pm Mr Kivel,Your statement regarding Jesus’ appeal to outcasts proves nothing. He still told them to – gasp! GO AND SIN NO MORE. This is the part that revisionists leave out of their half-asked interpretation of the Gospel. The real Gospel requires a full repentance and departure from deliberate sin (Heb 10:26). Additionally, I Corinthians 6:9 makes it quite clear that “malakoi” and “arsenokoitais” are excluded from the Kingdom of Heaven, as are adulterers and other sinners. Both words allude to the passive and active partners in a homosexual act. Make no mistake: the Kingdom of Heaven is a KINGDOM, not a democracy. There is only one Gospel and one absolute truth, not different interpretations. There is only one faith, one baptism, and one Lord of all. All other interpretations, including yours Mr Kivel, are deliberate perversions that oppose the Gospel of Jesus Christ. March 23, 2012 at 5:20 pm Rev. Terrill,The problem you discuss would involve taking an honest look at TEC’s recent revisions and apostasies at the national level and making corrections. They need to admit that the “gospel of inclusiveness” actually alienates many more people than it includes. They also need to admit that they need to come back to the traditional faith and the Bible as sources of authority and not secular humanism. Until then, TEC will always be a sinking ship. Director of Music Morristown, NJ Comments (7) Course Director Jerusalem, Israel March 25, 2012 at 5:55 pm Mr. Marc Kivel,For inclusive nature of Christ I find your statement interesting “….why the Apostles were constantly shocked by the sorts of folks Our Lord spent time with and why Our Lord wasn’t everyone’s poster boy for what a Jewish messiah should be, eh?”Our Lord welcomes everybody to Kingdom of Heaven with rebirth spirit in oneself shedding of his/her oneself of the past. With this principle we find Christ gave surprise to the guests of a Pharisee’s dinner by forgiving sins of a sinner woman who wiped Jesus’ feet with tears and the hair of her head, we find Him forgiving adulterous woman who was about to be killed by stone throwing, we find Him at dinner table of a notorious tax collector, we find Him instantly promising to take to paradise one of the two convicted criminals truly repented before his death at the cross, we find Him change the law to include gentile like us to share the salvation and even today, we find Him in the mind of a person who live holistically and believe Him and practice accordingly. Nowhere, we find Him encouraging living with natural instinct of life unholy to God, rather we find Him telling us consequence of necked persons without proper wedding dress.God’s moral standard has not been changed since creation of Adam and Eve. Don’t you think God would have found at least one couple of same sex at Sodom and Gomorrah to save their lives like cousin of Abraham, if that kind of same sex activities would have been permissible in the eyes of God? Church’s teaching should be same as it was in the beginning until His 2nd coming. The Church is built the with body of Christ who is alpha and omega. March 22, 2012 at 11:52 am I would like to see a more detailed report on how the bishops plan to restructure the church to meet the rapid decline of TEC. Are they really going to do something, or are they just trying to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic. [Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops spent much of its five-day meeting at Camp Allen Conference & Retreat Center in Navasota, Texas, focusing on its ongoing theme of  ‘Church for the 21st Century and the Gift of Episcope’ and discussing issues related to the upcoming General Convention and same-gender blessings.During its March 20 business meeting, the House of Bishops adopted a resolution to send greetings to Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams as he prepares to leave his post and return to academia at the end of the year.“We the bishops of the Episcopal Church send our greetings to the Most Rev. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury as you begin a new season in your ministry,” read the resolution. “We remember with deep appreciation your pastoral visit with us as we met in New Orleans, Louisiana, following the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. At the 2008 Lambeth Conference we were recipients of your personal hospitality, teaching ministry, and leadership. The ‘indaba’ spirit of that gathering continues to influence and shape our common life and ministry. We wish you Godspeed and many blessings in the coming days.”After serving 10 years as the archbishop of Canterbury, Williams announced March 16, the first day of the House of Bishops meeting, that he would step down at the end of the year to become Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.During a March 20 media briefing, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said that the Anglican Primates (presiding bishops and archbishops of the Anglican Communion provinces) from each region would nominate one of their number to serve on the Crown Nominations Commission.The Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs issued daily accounts that provided a brief overview of the discussions and activities of the House of Bishops, noting that the schedule called for “prayer-filled sessions,” with the bishops participating in daily Bible study, reflection and worship.The meeting was billed as a retreat, and members of the public and the news media were not allowed to observe the sessions. Very few, if any, bishops blogged and tweeted during the sessions. In past meetings, some bishops have raised issues of confidentiality in response to their colleagues tweeting and blogging about their conversations.There were 134 bishops in attendance.In a March 20 media briefing, bishops participating in the briefing said the meeting was more relaxed and the atmosphere more gracious than it has been in years.“Bishops lead such busy lives, we need to come away on a retreat,” said Bishop of Pittsburgh Kenneth Price, secretary of the House of Bishops, during the briefing, adding that the absence of outsiders made for a better atmosphere. He said that he would leave the meeting “blessed and energized.”During the meeting, a draft social media policy for electronic media at House of Bishops meetings was introduced and presented by Bishop Suffragan Gayle Harris of Massachusetts and Bishop James Waggoner of Spokane. The bishops discussed the draft and provided suggestions, according to a daily account.“The world is always changing,” said Price, regarding the social media policy during the media briefing. He said the report will be issued shortly.During one afternoon session, the bishop members of the Standing Committee on Liturgy and Music led a conversation on same-gender blessings. The SCLM on March 8 released excerpts of its report to General Convention, including the text of its proposed rite of blessing same-gender relationships, a theological reflection, and two related legislative resolutions that it will recommend to convention when it meets in Indianapolis July 4-12.The SCLM’s work comes in response to General Convention’s 2009 mandate (via Resolution C056) that it work with the House of Bishops to collect and develop theological resources and liturgies for blessing same-gender relationships and report to this summer’s 77th meeting of convention.According to a public affairs office daily account, the bishops continued discussion about the committee’s work and same-gender blessings “in small groups, as a body, and then in indaba settings, an opportunity for each member of the house to speak his or her mind in a smaller, open setting.” Indaba, which means “meaningful conversation,” is a process derived from African traditions that was used by the bishops at the 2008 Lambeth Conference.The presiding bishop mentioned that the Rt. Rev. Justin Welby, bishop of Durham in the Church of England, attended as an international guest and that when he offered his remarks at the close of the meeting, he said the indaba conversations facilitated generosity and clarity and that he said he would leave the meeting with a “‘deeper understanding of different contexts and realities.”Other sessions included a discussion on spiritual discipline, led by Diocese of Massachusetts Bishop Thomas Shaw, and a conversation on the General Convention 2009 Resolution B014, which called for the study of reconciliation or dissolution of pastoral relations between conflicted dioceses and their bishops.Jefferts Schori offered a meditation and reflection on the role of bishops in relation to faith, unity and governance.The bishops also heard presentations on the Anglican Covenant, a proposed set of principles intended to bind the Anglican Communion in spite of cultural and theological differences; and a revised document for Delegated Episcopal Pastoral Oversight (DEPO), provisions for dissenting congregations to seek reconciliation with their bishop or to request oversight from another bishop. Typically, DEPO has been used by congregations and bishops who have theological differences.Jefferts Schori said the Episcopal Church will make a formal statement, one she hopes will express “our desire to stay in communion and covenant relationships,” regarding the covenant at General Convention.Bishop of Kansas Dean Wolfe, vice president of the House of Bishops, offered his thoughts on the covenant during the briefing, describing it as a “helpful instrument in promoting dialogue and conversations,” and that it has led to some important work.Regarding the DEPO, Wolfe said, “The work that we did on the revised document had a wide acceptance in the house. I thought there was a wonderful and generous spirit around the document and the gentle editing.”In other business March 20, the bishops elected Les Callahan, a lay member of the Diocese of Atlanta, as a College for Bishops Board member. Reports were provided on the College for Bishops by Wolfe and Atlanta Bishop Neil Alexander of Atlanta; on Episcopal Schools by Bishop Tom Breidenthal of Southern Ohio, and on ministry to servicepersons and veterans by Bishop Jay Magness of Federal Ministries; on Solitaries by Bishop Russell Jacobus of Fond du Lac; and toward General Convention by Wolfe.

Featured Jobs & Calls Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS March 24, 2012 at 9:37 pm A few thoughts. Mr. Garcia, ++Rowan knew what he was getting into when he was appointed to his See and contrary to your comments most bishops, irrespective of their ecclesiastical politics, have great personal sympathy for the Archbishop – and a number simply disagree with his positions and his tactics. They are allowed to speak for themselves and their flocks – in the Anglican Communion to date, being first among equals does not mean you set the rules and everyone else falls into line.Mr. Terrill, being in Holy Orders, I would assume you’d better appreciate that the Holy Spirit frequently acts in ways that seem counterintuitive to tradition and reason, even if they prove to be the Way, the Truth, and the Light after the fact. Besides, ECUSA isn’t going to be restructured unless the Bishops can sell their vision to the House of Deputies which remains to be seen.Mr. Pirrung, I find it ironic when you write “…the “gospel of inclusiveness” actually alienates many more people than it includes” – I would guess that was why the Apostles were constantly shocked by the sorts of folks Our Lord spent time with and why Our Lord wasn’t everyone’s poster boy for what a Jewish messiah should be, eh?The idea that there is only one way to be Anglican or Episcopal or traditional or read the Bible says more for the narrowness of your thoughts, gentlemen, rather than any problems ECUSA may in fact have…..Thoughts?

I believe that TEC has always believed that scripture and tradition are the basis for faith and action. I think that scripture, reason and sacred humanism is the essence of the Christian faith and I think that you are wrong in your analysis.

To prevent passersby from seeing inside, one-way mirror glass covers the large openings on the street side.

The first floor includes a bathroom with adjacent miniature garden of the type often found in hotels, and the client’s study. The study is floored with tatami mats and can be used as a guest room as well as for working at the Japanese-style desk. On the second floor, a large open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area faces the courtyard, bringing the pleasures of outdoor living into the urban setting.

first_img Early Look at Spring Planting Weather is Promising Home Indiana Agriculture News Early Look at Spring Planting Weather is Promising Facebook Twitter Early-look-at-spring-planting-weatherIt’s a little early to be talking about spring 2019 planting weather conditions, but HAT chief meteorologist Ryan Martin did that this week in presentations at the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo, and a offered a possibility for good planting windows. But before that time rolls around, Hoosiers will have to deal with a snowy and cold winter.“The cold temperatures that we expect coming in for most of the winter would indicate that we should still see ample snow, but cold air generally produces a drier, fluffier snow,” he explained. “If we’re looking at a lot of Alberta clipper systems, which is what I think we will be looking at, snow can pile up, especially central and northern parts of the state. But we are still looking at generally below normal precipitation, liquid equivalent precipitation from that as we go through the January, February, and maybe March period.”It will be cold across most of the state, but to what degree?“I’m looking for us to generally be 3-6 degrees below normal, on average, for your maximum temperatures through the months of January and February,” Martin said. “That’s probably where we’re going to be peaking out. I think once we get into March we should be seeing temperatures ease a bit.”For further into spring, Martin’s models right now are suggesting the dryer or below normal precipitation will continue into March, April and then May, possibly back to near normal in May. Temperatures, like precip, look pretty good.“Temperatures do look like they want to climb, maybe getting normal to slightly above in March, but April does look warmer than normal on average, and then May back to near normal. If we put those two things together, we should be looking at maybe some windows for ample planting or even some early planting progress in April.”That’s encouraging, but it is the weather and models change, so stay tuned.

first_imgGJS/iStockBy KATIE KINDELAN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A Black Broadway star is sharing his pride after purchasing a home built by slaves.“I wish I could’ve told my ancestors when they were breaking their backs in 1820 to build this house that 200 years later a free gay black man was going to own it and fill it with love and find a way to say their name even when 200 years later they still thought I would be ‘off the table,’” Robert Hartwell wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of himself in front of the home. “We are building our own tables.”Hartwell is the founder of The Broadway Collective, a training program for young artists. His LinkedIn profile describes him as the “only African American CEO in the professional musical theatre education space in [New York City].”Hartwell wrote that he saw his new home less than a month ago online and reached out to the seller who told him it was a cash-only offer. The seller, according to Hartwell, then told him, “I’m sure that takes you off the table”.Hartwell told his Instagram followers, “Don’t you ever underestimate a hard working black man.”“I saw the house last week and when I walked in I knew I was home,” he said. “The house was built in 1820 for the Russell family who owned the cotton mill in town. Slavery was still legal.”“When the agent asked me why I wanted such a large house I said it was ‘a generational move,’” added Hartwell. “I know this house is bigger than me.”Hartwell ended his Instagram post by writing, “I’ve never been prouder to be a black man. Come to my White House any time. I can’t wait to have you! Glory to God in the highest. I’m a homeowner.”Hartwell’s emotional announcement came as the nation both celebrates Pride month and is facing a cultural reckoning amid protests against racism across the country.His post was met with comments congratulating his accomplishment.“CONGRATS!! The ancestors are dancing,” wrote one follower.“I cannot wait to see where this story goes!,” wrote another. “Right now it’s exactly the type of transition we need to get away from the darkness of the last and into the light of the future. Congratulations and thank you for taking this on.”“This fills me with so much joy, tears in my eyes to read your words, to feel your pride. Love you, friend,” commented Hartwell’s fellow Broadway star Kelli O’Hara. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgNotarize CEO Pat Kinsel. (Notarize)Following a year of explosive growth, online notary startup Notarize has raised $130 million from investors — including Google’s parent company and Wells Fargo — to fuel its continued expansion.The round values the company at $760 million, more than triple its valuation of $250 million last March, according to CEO Pat Kinsel. The round brings Notarize’s total funding to $213 million.“It was clear when Covid hit that there was going to be extraordinary demand for our service,” he said. “What I’m most proud of this year was that we were able to serve the volume.”The Series D was led by Canapi Ventures, with participation from Alphabet’s growth fund CapitalG, Citi Ventures, Wells Fargo and True Bridge Partners. Prior backers Camber Creek, Ludlow Ventures, Second Century Ventures and Fifth Wall Ventures also took part.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreCuomo authorizes virtual notarizations Title startup Doma will diversity after SPAC IPO How proptech firms raised cash during lockdown Full Name* Share via Shortlink Email Address* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink The company said it will use the funding to expand its platform to new industries and scale its offerings for enterprise clients.Founded in 2015 by Kinsel and Adam Pase, Notarize is one of several tech companies working to digitize the often clunky analog processes that are still required to close real estate deals, from document signing to title insurance.In a statement, Neil Underwood, a partner at Canapi who is joining Notarize’s board, called it the “last mile of multi-billion-dollar business models” that promise digital transactions. “There’s massive potential, particularly in the financial services space, as more companies will need to offer secure digital alternatives to in-person transactions,” he said.Since March 2020, Notarize’s business skyrocketed 600 percent, including an 800 percent jump in its real estate business.That was thanks, in part, to new corporate partnerships with clients such as Redfin, Zillow, First American, Transamerica, Stripe and J.D. Power & Associates.According to Kinsel, when Covid hit, Notarize quickly shifted its approach to meet a surge of demand. Instead of manually onboarding notaries to its platform, it rolled out a self-service model. “It was clear this wasn’t, ‘Hey, let’s deal with this for a month,’” Kinsel said. “We had to completely change how we serve the market in order to, frankly, help people complete these transactions.”Today, Notarize has more than 1,000 notaries on its platform and has doubled its employee headcount to more than 240. In recent months, Notarize has also built up its C-suite: It’s tapped Wendy Ivanoski, formerly of State Street Corp. and Santander Bank, as vice president of enterprise strategy, and Nicole Booth, a former exec at Quicken Loans, as executive vice president of public affairs. In January, it named Larry D’Angelo, a tech veteran, president and chief commercial officer.Kinsel declined to disclose Notarize’s 2020 revenue, but said it is on track to grow “several multiples” this year. Based on Notarize’s current customer base, he said, the company has a $700 million revenue opportunity at its fingertips,Across the U.S., 31 states currently allow remote online notarization. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo enacted temporary authorization for remote notarizations last year; there’s currently a bill in the legislature that would make it law.Contact E.B.

first_imgWe use data from eight satellites to statistically examine the role of chorus as a potential source of plasmaspheric hiss. We find that the strong equatorial (|λm| < 6o) chorus wave power in the frequency range 50 < f < 200 Hz does not extend to high latitudes in any MLT sector and is unlikely to be the source of the low frequency plasmaspheric hiss in this frequency range. In contrast, strong equatorial chorus wave power in the medium frequency range 200 < f < 2000 Hz is observed to extend to high latitudes and low altitudes in the pre‐noon sector, consistent with ray tracing modelling from a chorus source and supporting the chorus to hiss generation mechanism. At higher frequencies, chorus may contribute to the weak plasmaspheric hiss seen on the dayside in the frequency range 2000 < f < 3000 Hz band, but is not responsible for the weak plasmaspheric hiss on the nightside in the frequency range 3000 < f < 4000 Hz.last_img read more

Miller Field.“When two good teams play, you win or lose with a play here or there,” BYU head coach Mike Littlewood said. “We saw some good things this week.”The Bulldogs (12-10, 3-3 West Coast Conference) used a single and a Cougar error en route to loading the bases in the eighth with a 1-1 tie. A single, two walks and a hits batsman plated three Zags and BYU (12-10, 2-4 WCC) was unable to come back.Inouye started for the Cougars and allowed just four hits and one earned run in six innings of work.“Blake (Inouye) gave us exactly what we needed,” Littlewood said. “He showed us that he can definitely be a starter for us.”BYU scored first by getting Mitch McIntyre over and in after he reached on an error in the third. Gonzaga squared it up at 1-1 with a pair of hits in the sixth.The Cougars responded to the Bulldogs’ eighth-inning rally by putting up a pair of runs in the bottom half. Jarrett Perns led off the inning with a double and Keaton Kringlen and Brian Hsu singled. However, BYU stranded runners on the corners with a 6-3-6 double play groundout.On Tuesday, the Cougars play at UVU in the second leg of the UCCU Crosstown Clash (BYU won the first game 9-3 in Provo).

You’re probably protecting a whole lot you don’t need to. And then do everything you can to protect that smaller amount.”He added, “I do not believe that the online world means that there can be no secrecy and everyone will know everything about everyone.”He spoke at a closed session at the Forum where participants wrestled with the thorny questions surfaced by the explosion of online information and the WikiLeaks phenomenon in particular.last_img read more
