Serving Christ in the world

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC By Patrick AugustinePosted Sep 18, 2012 Comments (1) Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Knoxville, TN Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Kathleen Murff Whiting says: Rector Albany, NY Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Belleville, IL The Rev. Canon Patrick Augustine[Episcopal News Service] Our hearts are saddened as we watch the violence that has erupted across the world in protest to an anti-Islam film. It has already caused human loss of lives such as Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans serving in the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.It reminds me of images of November 1979 of the burning of the U.S. embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. I was then the rector of St. Thomas Church in Islamabad. I witnessed with my own eyes the rage and destruction caused by thousands of students demanding “death to America.”I also express my protest to this person who made a movie demonstrating scathing attacks on the prophet of Islam. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has made it clear to the Islamic world with her statement, “This awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Enemies of the United States such as al-Qaeda are using it to their advantage to target American presence abroad.America is a land of liberty and millions of immigrants have come to her soil to enjoy many freedoms. At times misguided individuals use their freedom of expression in harmful ways. In 1989, American artist and photographer Andres Serrano, in the name of art, displayed a photograph of a small plastic crucifix she titled “Piss Christ.” This cross was submerged in a glass of the artist’s own urine in a New York museum. This is not only an offensive expression of art but also a terrible abuse of free speech. It appears to be done with malicious intentions to cause hurt and disrespect to the followers of a certain faith community.Equally contemptible were the actions of one individual who made a movie to insult Muhammad. We cannot take these events lightly. As Americans we are not living in isolation from the rest of the global community. If we desire respect we need to earn it by showing respect to others.Free speech doesn’t give license to offend. People of faith must condemn the actions of those individuals who have intentionally hurt the sanctity and harmony of our faith communities. But I fear the repercussions for Christian minorities living in Muslim countries. Many of them already live under the fear of persecution with very little guarantee of basic human rights.I have often wondered what inspired Christians in the Roman Empire who were persecuted and killed for confessing the name of Jesus Christ. In our own modern days of the 21st century we learn of the persecution of Christians in Sudan, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt and many more countries.For the church in Pakistan there is no other option for the faithful followers but to lift up to the hills and behold the cross of Jesus. In the valley of the shadow of death thou art with me. That is their witness as they continue in the face of persecution, discrimination and acts of terror serving that nation through their schools, hospitals, leprosy clinics, schools for the blind and literacy centers.It is on the cross of Jesus the powers of hatred and violence were defeated that meek and weak may have a life of hope and resurrection.What Jesus calls us to do is not always pleasant; it is not always easy; it should not be done without serious contemplation. He wants us to know very clearly what it may cost to follow him. Some of us wonder “Am I worthy to be a disciple of Jesus?” Do I have stamina, perseverance to carry his cross?Martin Luther was right when he said:  “God can carve the rotten wood and ride the lame horse.” Jesus chose just such people: fishermen and tax collectors, known as sinners and zealots. They were not particularly part of the religious establishment. Jesus took these ordinary earthen vessels and filled them with His grace and power to lift high the cross.One thing the Gospel makes clear: “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”— The Rev.

Canon Augustine,Your deeply sincere thoughts about this fearful situation should be required reading for all who would report the day-to-day actions across the world in response to this hideous video. I cannot help wondering how we would feel if someone were to profit from a movie which portrayed our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as a child molester – or worse. What would we think if that person also portrayed himself and his friends as members of some faith the same way the people who have encouraged and blatantly defended this awful film are doing. How close to outrage would the Christian reaction be? Would we “lose it?” And how would we present ourselves to refute such a horrendous item and those who constructed it? Would we communicate with them and pray for them? Would everyone still know we were Christians by our love? I cannot understand the violent protests, the murders, but I can understand the fury that fed them.

A Friday Night Ride-Along in Apopka

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Observations from an Apopka Police Department patrol shift.*****“Please take care of my Dad.”  Those were the words spoken to me by Apopka Police Captain Randy Fernandez’s 9-year old son, Asa.Fernandez and I had been planning an evening ride-along for some time.  When we agreed earlier in the week to do it on Friday July 9th, neither of us had any idea that we would be patrolling Apopka less than 24 hours after the Dallas police shooting that saw five officers killed and 6 others wounded.Was I a bit apprehensive?  Absolutely.  But how often would this opportunity present itself? I was determined to not allow a terrorist act change my plans.As our “shift” began we spoke with a young women who had brought her three young children to hand-deliver cards of appreciation to the Apopka Police Department.  Officer Danielle Saslo gave them a quick tour and let the oldest turn on her patrol car’s lights.From 4:30 PM to 12:30 AM we roamed the streets of Apopka.  We responded to a few of the incidents reported by or assigned by Dispatch to one of the 8 patrol officers on duty.But our first encounter was with a driver who made an illegal left turn onto Main Street.  Within a minute of pulling the driver over we were joined by another patrol officer.  I quickly learned that was the protocol.  At least two officers responded to nearly every call for service.  Does it really take two officers to issue a traffic violation?  Well, no, as long as the driver answers the officer’s questions and complies with the officer’s requests.More about that later…Gone are the days when there are two officers in each patrol car.  It is much more efficient to have one officer per car.  But, in the interest of officer safety other officers will respond as backup. The backups leave only when it is clear that officer safety will not be compromised.The Stops:Illegal left hand turnTwo car accident without injuries in front of the VFWSpeeding violation on 441 west of SheelerMedical emergency involving a homeless man at the Main Street Walgreen’s.  Apopka paramedics took the man to Florida Hospital Apopka.  Officer Charlie White transported the man’s worldly goods to the same destination in his APD pickup.  Officer White also updated me regarding a strangely parked car reported in my neighborhood a month ago.Domestic dispute between two ex’sWe stopped by the Communications Center where Lead Communications Technician Billy Bryant briefed me on the technology and the challenges the dispatchers face during their long shifts.It was a fairly typical Friday night, according to 29-year veteran Sergeant Carlos Joseph.  Towards the end of the shift he and I spoke at length. While briefing his shift earlier he told his officers they needed to put the events in Dallas “out of their heads” and focus on their job; Protecting and serving the people of Apopka.  He emphasized the word “serving.”“We are in the service business,” said Carlos. “Yes, we protect, but every contact we make is also a service call.”The Apopka Police Department responds to over 1,000 “calls for service” every week, according to the Department’s weekly activity report.Joseph told me about two traffic stops he had made in the hours after the Dallas police shootings.  At one a 17-year old girl thanked him for his service and asked him to be safe.  At the other three young women told him they were praying for him and the other Apopka police officers.The final stop of the night involved a driver who ran a stop sign.  Rather than pull over, he proceeded to drive to his house where he then refused to provide Officer Ashley Eller with an ID.  He also refused to get out of his car when asked.  He and his female passenger insisted that he had done nothing wrong. As time went on the volume of their objections increased.I was observing this conflict from about 40 feet away, but the increasing tension was obvious.  As I looked around I realized that the street was totally dark except for the lights from the patrol cars.  Surely there were people in these houses watching.  My thoughts went to Dallas.  Because of the situation, there were several officers on the scene.  What if…?In the end the driver was extracted from the vehicle, handcuffed, and placed in the backseat of a patrol car.  He ultimately produced his ID and was released.*****When Asa asked me to take care of his Dad my reply was, “I’ll do my best.”A better response to Asa and all of the children of police officers is this; “Thank you for allowing your Moms and Dads to keep me and the rest of Apopka safe.” Previous articleSinners in the Hands of an Angry God by Jonathan EdwardsNext articleTrack Club Car Wash a Success Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 You have entered an incorrect email address!

Block 24E combines residential building forms of different heights with street-related retail bases to activate the southern portion of Spadina Avenue, one of Toronto’s most important north-south arterials. It anchors the CityPlace development as it transitions from east to west and forms a gateway on Spadina to create a more inviting pedestrian experience. Beyond activating the precinct, its formal silhouette will make a significant statement in support of the Mayor’s and the City of Toronto’s agenda to create a City Beautiful.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanRecommended ProductsMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedThe design is composed of three distinct elements: NEO, a north-south loft building, a light Pavilion with restaurant, retail and recreational amenities on Bremner Blvd, and Montage, a 40-story point tower on the north-west corner of the parcel. A continuous abstract element defines the profiles of both horizontal surface and vertical planes and unifies the ensemble. The overall expression of the buildings is light and contemporary, using glass and metal on the upper stories to mitigate the impact of their mass on the street, while stone, wood and other tactile materials establish an inviting, pedestrian-scale experience at street level. Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe Montage tower is set back to have the least impact on the street. Its larger face is oriented to maximize optimal views to the Lake Ontario and city. The design was conceived in the spirit of iconic towers that distinguish major international cities, emphasizing simplicity and proportion to create a bold statement for City Place on Toronto’s skyline.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe architectural concept speaks to an increasingly sophisticated and discerning first-time group of home buyers who want to live in the city but need affordable homes. The units in the NEO building have already been sold out, largely due to their modernist yet cost-effective designs which feature sliding glass doors, natural materials and flexible and highly functional plans. A major grocery store will provide a much-needed source of fresh produce and attract residents from the surrounding neighborhoods and towers.

We had to work within a tight foot print due to building restrictions which resulted in a compact 2-storey main building which includes most of the bedrooms and communal spaces while we have placed the guest room above the service building which has been sunken slightly below ground level to reduce its impact against the main building. The pool area takes advantage of the length of the land and connects the building with the beach.Save this picture!© Moch Sulthonn for Word of MouthSave this picture!© Moch Sulthonn for Word of MouthThe elongated feeling of the pool within the land has been balanced by introducing a circular deck all around it. The combination of round and square shapes continues across the whole project whether it’s in the pond design or in wall openings.

Online newspaper editor faces a year of hard labour for insulting Putin

first_img RSF_en News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Reporters Without Borders today condemned the closure of online newspaper by its Internet service provider on 22 May, three days after prosecutors being investigating its editor, Vladimir Rakhmankov, on charges of “insulting a representative of the state” under article 319 of the criminal code in an article headlined, “Putin, Russia’s phallic symbol.”Claiming the article contained “phrases of an offensive nature for the president of the Russian Federation,” Vladimir Galchenko, the prosecutor of Ivanovo (near Moscow), ordered a search of Rakhmankov’s home and office and seized his computer. Rakhmankov has been placed under house arrest for the duration of the investigation, expected to take two months.”The lack of coherence and transparency in this case is disturbing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We do not know the source of the accusations. Cursiv was closed by its hosting company, which did not wait for a court order and claimed that it had not paid its bills although it is hosted free of charge.”The press freedom organisation added: “There was no reason to close this site down, aside from pressure to do so from the local authorities. This action speaks volumes about the climate of fear in which these companies are now operating.”The offending article was colourfully satirical about President Putin’s appeal to the Russian people to increase the birthrate and thereby defend the country’s borders. It drew parallels with a recent report by the Ivanovo administration that said the city zoo’s animal population had risen.Rakhmankov said his website was closed down because local officials did not like the way it criticised them for abuse of authority.No trial date has yet been set. Rakhmankov faces a heavy fine or a sentence of six to 12 months of hard labour. As part of the investigation, a “linguistic expert” will be asked to assess the gravity of the insult to President Putin.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: May 27, 2021 Find out more News Vladimir Rakhmankov, the editor of the online newspaper, was charged on 19 May with insulting President Putin for publishing an article headlined, “Putin, Russia’s phallic symbol.” He faces a possible sentence of 12 months of hard labour.

(Credit: California Community Foundation)The Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs (PBI) at Cal State LA honored California Community Foundation President and CEO Antonia Hernández with its 2020 Award for Philanthropic Leadership.The award was presented during a webinar, entitled “2020: A Call to Action,” sponsored by PBI.Hernández took part in a vibrant discussion about the crisis in communities across the region and what can be done to create a better future. She was joined by Fred Ali, president and CEO of the Weingart Foundation, and Dr. Robert K. Ross, president and CEO of The California Endowment.The event was moderated by Raphael J. Sonenshein, executive director for PBI.“Under Antonia’s creative and committed leadership, the California Community Foundation has become a deeply impactful changemaker in our region, expanding beyond grantmaking to civic engagement and public policy,” Sonenshein said, citing Hernández’s lifetime of public service and dedication to creating a more just and equitable society.A Pasadena resident, Hernández has spent more than four decades championing social justice as a civil rights attorney and philanthropist. Prior to the California Community Foundation, she served as president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), a national civil rights organization.“Change is within our power but we have to do the hard work. It’s not easy. It’s hard. You have to engage. You have to vote. You have to be civically minded. You have to participate in the census.
