Authorities warn the worst damage could be from storm surge on the coast and steady rain, which have the potential to cause dangerous flooding.“Hurricane Florence is an uninvited guest, but she is just about here anyway,” Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday morning, according to the Wilmington Star News. “My message today: Don’t relax. Don’t become complacent. This is a powerful storm that can kill. Today, the threat becomes a reality.”Episcopalians are taking that threat seriously. Services and church activities have been canceled from the Episcopal Church in Okatie, South Carolina, near the Georgia state line to St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, North Carolina. Diocesan officials have been in contact with Episcopal Relief & Development and are communicating emergency info to their church members. And many Episcopalians on the coast have heeded evacuation orders or else are hunkering down as the storm approaches.“There seems little doubt that Hurricane Florence is going to have a tremendous impact across the communities of our diocese, and many are projecting that it will be the most devastating storm that our state has experienced in decades,” East Carolina Bishop Robert Skirving said Sept. 12 in a letter to the diocese, which includes coastal North Carolina.His diocese has created a “hurricane hub” on its website to provide residents with the latest storm updates and links to other information and resources. The website also invites those interested in helping to donate to the diocese’s relief fund or to Episcopal Relief & Development.The National Hurricane Center warns that Florence is poised to bring “life-threatening storm surge and rainfall.” The storm’s wind speed has decreased in recent days, but it has grown wider and is expected to produce storm surges of up to 13 feet and up to 30 inches of rain for coastal North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. Up to a foot of rain could fall on the rest of the Carolinas and Virginia.The Church of the Servant in Wilmington isn’t taking any chances.“Thank you to those who were able to come help us get COS ready for hurricane Florence,” the congregation’s rector, the Rev. Jody Greenwood, said Sept. 13 in a Facebook post showing a virtually empty church. “Consider hatches battened-down.”When reached by phone, Greenwood told Episcopal News Service she and her wife left their home in downtown Wilmington to stay with other members of the congregation in a home more securely located away from the ocean. She brought her bicycle, to have another way to get back to the church if driving lanes aren’t passable after the storm.The parish, with an average Sunday attendance of about 150, has an emergency plan that involves checking on each parishioner before the storm hits. Greenwood estimates half of them fled, and the other half are staying in Wilmington.She hopes to let them know in the next day or so whether Sunday services will resume on Sept. 16. The services necessarily would be simple. No bulletins were printed before the storm. The congregation’s organist is staying in Alabama.“If we have services, it’s going to be mostly to give people something to do and be in community with each other,” Greenwood said.Across the city, fellow Wilmington congregation St. Andrew’s On-the-Sound Episcopal Church had closed as well, with all but its 11:15 a.m. Sunday service canceled for the week.“Please, as always, pay attention to bulletins and warnings from local government,” the Rev. Richard Elliott, rector, said on the church’s Facebook page. “Err on the side of caution. Exercise common sense. If you are in a safe place and it is not safe on the roads, stay in the safe place. We will have church services another time. … Let us hold one another close in our hearts.”Grace Cathedral in Charleston, South Carolina, noted it was under a mandatory evacuation and had canceled many of the congregation’s regularly scheduled activities for the week, though Sunday services are still on for now.“We pray for our community, for all travelers, and all those affected by this coming storm,” the cathedral said in a post about the storm on its website. “We pray for the safety and security of all. We ask for God’s guiding Hand upon all first responders and all agencies that provide relief in the days ahead.”The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, which includes Charleston and the state’s coastal congregations, has been working with Episcopal Relief & Development since Sept. 10 to plan for the storm, according to a post on its website. Sunday services are canceled for at least 12 congregations in the diocese.Episcopal Relief & Development is supporting 11 dioceses in the path of the storm, which has prompted evacuation orders affecting more than 1.5 million people.“Leaders throughout this region have extensive experience preparing for and responding to disasters and have powerful networks of relationships and ministries in their communities,” Katie Mears, senior director of Episcopal Relief & Development’s U.S. Disaster Program, said in a press release. “This wealth of experience and deep community connections will allow diocesan leaders to effectively serve those most in need.”And although the communities along the Carolina coast are expected to be hit hardest by Hurricane Florence, churches further inland are taking the storm just as seriously.Western North Carolina Bishop José McLoughlin sent a letter to his diocese Sept. 12 noting that he and the rest of the Carolinas and Virginia bishops have been on daily conference calls to coordinate church response, including through use of an emergency alert system.“We are doing everything in our power to ensure that we all stay connected during the upcoming natural disaster,” McLoughlin said. “Please keep the other dioceses that are in the path of Hurricane Florence, as well as all first responders, in your prayers.”The Diocese of North Carolina, which encompasses the middle third of the state, issued a notice Sept. 13 saying diocesan offices would be closed for the day and on Sept. 14. It also offered assistance for congregations that sustain damage to their churches and to clergy needing pastoral support.Episcopal leaders in the region have been busy all week with preparations, North Carolina Bishop Suffragan Anne Hodges-Copple told Episcopal News Service by phone. By Sept. 13, with plans in place, it felt like the “calm before the storm,” she said, but behind the scenes communications continue among all affected dioceses.“There is a huge collaboration going on,” Hodges-Copple said.The Episcopal Church is familiar with this kind of response because of the expertise provided by Episcopal Relief & Response but also because of the frequency of similar disasters in recent years.The eye of Florence is on track to pass over or near Wilmington, North Carolina, with hurricane-force sustained winds before making its way across South Carolina and weakening over the next few days, according to the National Hurricane Center forecast. Photo: NOAAThis month marks a year since Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana hard, prompting the mobilization of the dioceses there to help with relief efforts. Later in September 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated much of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and the Episcopal dioceses there still are working with residents to bounce back. Irma also hit the mainland United States, and Episcopal dioceses from Southwest Florida to South Carolina helped their congregations prepare for the storm and deal with the aftermath.Hodges-Copple referenced storms from even farther back – Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and Hurricane Fran in 1996 – that hit the East Coast, including the Carolinas. Not everyone in her diocese today may remember those storms, but emergency communications have improved since then as technology has evolved. Even in remote, rural areas, the church is working to make sure no residents are forgotten during and after a major storm like Florence.And often, the most immediate relief priests and deacons can offer their parishioners is a calming presence in the face of calamity.“There’s going to be times when all we can do is be still and be prayerful,” she said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Easter falls on a Sunday this Year?

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply TAGSEasterThe VOICE of Inspiration Previous articleA wilderness surpriseNext articleWhy Easter is called Easter, and other little-known facts about the holiday Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR April 21, 2019 at 12:34 pm Please enter your name here Well Scripted, Reggie!!! Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter MzSheila Taylorcenter_img The Anatomy of Fear The VOICE of InspirationBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceA few years ago, I worked at a sales office with about 50 employees. They were good people, mostly Christians, but not too many churchgoers among them.I remember a sales associate named Michelle. She was a young mom with two kids. It was about a week from Easter, and she was discussing her children’s holiday plans.“They have the entire week off, and then they go back to school the following Monday,” I recall her saying. “So I guess that means Easter falls on a Sunday this year.”I thought she was joking, but she wasn’t.Michelle was a good mother, and a good person, but religion was not on her radar. She was not anti-Christian or anti-anything for that matter… just a single mom focused on her kids and making ends meet. She talked about Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets and the parties she was invited to on Easter Sunday.Michelle is someone you would want to visit your church, but how would she be treated if she did? Would she be loved, served and blessed? Or would she be judged, preached at and evangelized?A few days ago I was at a coffee shop with a few friends, and members of my church.A retired pastor that some in the group knew walked past. One of us said “hello” to him. He kind of frowned but said hello back. Then he opened the door about halfway and in a stoic tone said this:“It’s not about chickens and it’s not about bunny rabbits, it’s about the Lord Jesus Christ sacrificing his life for us.”Then he went inside and ordered a mocha latte.My first thought was to repeat Michelle’s infamous question to the pastor… “Does Easter fall on a Sunday this year?” Instead, I pondered the contrasting comments of Michelle and Pastor Latte. Then I wondered how welcome she would feel if the first contact with a Jesus follower was to say those preachy words? Would she nod in stunned agreement and look for the nearest exit? Would her children be uncomfortable after being told their Easter basket full of candy and chocolate eggs was disrespectful to Jesus?Sometimes Christians believe that if they don’t stand strong for Jesus, He will be forgotten… that we must take on the secular forces at work to marginalize our religion.I say we go out into the world and take care of those already marginalized, needy and in pain. Allow God to work through us, and leave it to God to continue speaking to the world.And believe me, He will never be forgotten.Jesus spent a little over 30 years on earth about 2,000 years ago, yet he is still the most talked about person in history. Even nature itself remembers His sacrifice. Every spring and Easter, it honors His resurrection with rebirth and renewal of its own.Lilies appear from the ground as if by magic. One day it’s an underground and forgotten bulb, the next day, it’s the featured flower in the garden. In New Smyrna Beach, white moths suddenly appear by the thousands on or around Easter every year. The entire town is transformed into a natural show of rebirth.Spring is a time of renewal. Flowers bloom. Snow melts. The earth is reborn.And Jesus is remembered. Every Easter God rewrites Genesis 1.Easter is a celebration of the greatest event in human history. There should be Easter baskets, Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, fireworks, parties; games and anything else people want to celebrate with.If the gospels are a true account of the manner in which Jesus walked the earth, then my guess is he would enjoy his time with Michelle and her children more than he would the reverent Pastor Latte. He would want to attend the parties, eat, drink and spend time with friends no matter where they are in their journey.In honor of Jesus and his incredible sacrifice, let’s open our doors and love, serve and bless the visitors to our churches this Easter. Lord knows there will be lots of them! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 1 COMMENT Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address!

OPEN SIDE: Fascinating insight into David Pocock’s return to Africa

first_imgThursday Mar 29, 2018 OPEN SIDE: Fascinating insight into David Pocock’s return to Africa David Pocock makes his long-awaited return for the Brumbies this weekend in Super Rugby. The Zimbabwean-Australian flanker stepped away from the game in 2016 for a year long break, heading back to his former family home in Africa. This three-part documentary, Open Side, gives us a glimpse into the trials and tribulations he and partner Emma went through while over in Zimbabwe, running their family farm. It was a taxing challenge for the couple, but one they tackled head on, fully immersing themselves in African life away from rugby. It’s a fascinating insight into how the couple operate, and shows the level of commitment Pocock has for whatever he sets his mind to.PART 1PART 2PART 3The 29-year-old has been unable to train for the past two months after he underwent knee surgery, so it’s been a frustrating wait, but one that he has used to get his body 100% ready.This weekend’s return sees him rack up his 100th Super Rugby match, with 69 appearances for the Force, before he moved to the Brumbies in 2013. Coach Dan McKellar hasn’t hesitated in rushing him back into the starting team. The Brumbies host the Waratahs at GIO Stadium in Canberra at 19:45 on Saturday.Brumbies team: 15.

Los cargos imputados fueron de conspiración para cometer espionaje, una pena que se paga generalmente con la muerte.El equipo encargado de su defensa pudo lograr una “pena menor”, lo que realmente ha sido una muerte en vida debido a las extremas condiciones de aislamiento. No puede recibir visitas, ni correos, ni llamadas, ni usar computadora. Solo hay un reducido número de personas a las cuales puede tener acceso, entre ellas, a su madre.En estos momentos, existe una situación sumamente urgente. Fue diagnosticada con cáncer de mama y hace pocos días se le realizó una mastectomía, luego de la cual recibirá tratamiento de quimioterapia. Dada las condiciones de aislamiento, lo que incluye no tener acceso a más información, no se sabe la extensión del cáncer y ni siquiera dónde se realizó la cirugía.Trabajo meritorio Desconocida por muchas personas, esta mujer es la imagen misma de una inmensa generosidad y sacrificio.¿Cuál fue su delito? Aquí podríamos repetir esa famosa cita del Che, el Che internacionalista y solidario que dijo “el revolucionario verdadero está guiado por grandes sentimientos de amor… amor a la humanidad, a la justicia.”. Fue ese profundo amor a la justicia lo que condujo a Ana Belén a prisión.En estos días en que hay un renovado esfuerzo por parte de Cuba y de millones de personas solidarias con la Revolución Cubana por terminar de una vez el criminal bloqueo estadounidense contra Cuba, es imprescindible recordar el sacrificio que hizo esta boricua en beneficio de millones de vidas cubanas.Nada ilustra mejor ese deseo de justicia que su declaración ante el tribunal que la condenó el 16 de octubre de 2002.“Su señoría, yo me envolví en la actividad que me trajo ante usted porque obedecí a mi conciencia en lugar de la ley. Yo creo que la política de nuestro gobierno hacia Cuba es cruel e injusta, profundamente inamistosa, y me sentí moralmente obligada a ayudar a la isla a defenderse de nuestros esfuerzos de imponerle nuestros valores y nuestro sistema político. Hemos mostrado intolerancia y desprecio hacia Cuba por la mayor parte de las últimas cuatro décadas. Nunca hemos respetado el derecho de Cuba de transitar su propio camino hacia sus propios ideales de igualdad y justicia. Yo no entiendo por qué nosotros continuamos dictando como los cubanos deberían seleccionar sus líderes, quienes estos no pueden ser, y que leyes son apropiadas en su tierra. ¿Por qué no podemos dejar a Cuba seguir su propia vía interna, tal y como los Estados Unidos ha hecho por más de dos siglos?Interesantemente, el final de su declaración es precisamente similar a la esencia de lo que el pasado diciembre el presidente Obama anunció en cuanto a las relaciones de EUA con Cuba: “Mi mayor deseo es el de ver relaciones amigables emerger entre los Estados Unidos y Cuba. Yo espero que mi caso de alguna manera impulsará a nuestro gobierno a abandonar su hostilidad hacia Cuba y a trabajar con La Habana en un espíritu de tolerancia, respeto mutuo, y entendimiento”.Hay que recalcar que como resultado de su trabajo, no hubo ningún riesgo para EUA ni su “seguridad nacional”. Por el contrario, pudo evitar operaciones hostiles militares estadounidense contra Cuba que hubiera costado miles de vidas, tanto cubanas como estadounidenses. La información que pasó Ana Belén a Cuba, fue exclusivamente para que esta nación pudiera defenderse.Esta labor que por 16 años ella realizó, fue totalmente voluntaria; ni hubo presión alguna y ni un centavo recibió – ni aceptó – por este gran sacrificio. Es un ejemplo tan noble que las autoridades estadounidenses sólo la han podido calificar de locura, encerrándola en una prisión psiquiátrica.Es interesante que uno de los documentos que ilustra su abnegación,  proceda de un libro escrito nada menos que por Scott Carmichael, quien trabajaba en la misma agencia donde  Ana Belén se desempeñaba como analista superior sobre Cuba, en la Agencia de Espionaje de Defensa, DIA por las siglas en inglés. Esta es la agencia que aconseja al Presidente, al Pentágono y a la Junta de Estado Mayor e influye sobre las acciones a seguir.Carmichael era investigador – caza topos – y estuvo a cargo de la investigación de Ana. En su libro “True Believer” (Verdadera creyente), se puede conocer el minucioso trabajo y el sacrificio de esta valiente mujer. Aunque el propósito del libro no era crear simpatía por Ana Belén, sino todo lo contrario, es imposible que no despierte admiración y respeto por su trabajo.Solidaridad con AnaLa solidaridad con Ana Belén Montes ha ido creciendo en el último año, siendo los círculos más fuertes en Cuba y en Puerto Rico. El apoyo se ha ido extendiendo internacionalmente, particularmente en Brasil, donde grupos de solidaridad con Cuba han recogido la bandera de Ana Belén. Voces en pro de la excarcelación de Ana se han expresado escribiéndole a Obama como la Premio Nobel irlandesa Mairead Maguire y el trovador cubano Vicente Feliú.En el mismo Estados Unidos, en Francia, Argentina, Chile, Galicia y la República Dominicana, han surgido voces de apoyo a su liberación. El estadounidense David Rovics le dedicó una canción youtube.com/watch?v=T8A-ldHiDyk.En Cuba, personalidades conocidas como Silvio Rodríguez han exigido su liberación. Hay además varios grupos, entre ellos el de CubaXAnaBelenMontes que el pasado mes de septiembre conmemoró con un concierto los 15 años que ha estado en prisión.El pasado viernes 21 de octubre, René González, uno de los Cinco Héroes cubanos, escribió una carta abierta pidiendo que se le escriba a Ana. Escribe René: “Ana Belén Montes, la valiente mujer puertorriqueña encarcelada por proteger a Cuba de las políticas de agresión de los Estados Unidos, ha sido operada a causa de cáncer de mama…. Aunque ella no puede recibir correo, el mensaje de miles de cartas llegando a la puerta de su prisión sería uno potente. Por favor, únete a este esfuerzo y escribe una carta o una postal a Ana”.Ese mensaje hace eco del pedido que la prima de Ana, Miriam Montes Mock hizo a través de la Mesa de Trabajo por Ana Belén Montes en Puerto Rico.“Le pido a todos mis amigos que envíen sus mensajes al presidente Obama [email protected], a la Autoridad de Prisiones de EUA, a la Prisión de Carswell (crw/[email protected]), mostrando la preocupación por la salud de Ana y demanden su excarcelación, pidan por su liberación humanitaria. Les pido que pongan copia de sus mensajes a la Red Cinco Héroes ([email protected]) a fin de circular esos mensajes por la Red y tratar también de hacerlos llegar a Ana de alguna manera, para que ella pueda conocer que no está sola y que cientos, miles de personas en Cuba y en el mundo la acompañan en esta lucha por la vida y por su libertad”.Para escribir a Ana:ANA BELEN MONTESNO. 25037-016CARSWELL DETENTION CENTER3000, I St, Fort Worth, TX 76127También pueden enviar correos a [email protected] y [email protected]reShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Waiting Game Continues in Southern Indiana

first_img Previous articleIndiana Crop WeatherNext articleRecord Northwest Indiana Floods a Call to Action Gary Truitt Dan EmmertIn Southwest Indiana, the waiting game continues. Cold and wet soils are keeping most growers from even getting close to planting this year. DuPont Pioneer agronomist Dan Emmert says there has not even very much field preparation done, “I only know of a few fields that have had any work done on them.  Some burndown has been done and a few with anhydrous ammonia put on, but that is about it.”Emmert worries that, when conditions do start to improve, growers will be too anxious to get into the field, “My fear is that when the weather does begin to improve, growers will want to try and do everything at once.” He urged growers to consider plant back restrictions on herbicides and to keep anhydrous far enough away from seeds to avoid seedling injury. He added that working a field too early can lead to compaction that will hurt yields later this year. His advice it to be patient and take it slow, “Even though it feels like we are behind the gun, we still need to be cautious and wait for good conditions.”According to the USDA weekly crop update, the statewide average temperature was 36.9 degrees, 9.9 degrees below normal. After a colder than normal March, conditions are far from ideal for planting. The statewide average precipitation total was 1.74 inches, 0.83 inches above normal. Rainfall amounts varied from 0.14 inches to 4.11 inches over the week. Soil moisture surpluses remained. There were only 0.6 days available for fieldwork for the week ending April 8.Watch for more agronomic advice from DuPont Pioneer later this week.
