Canada: Primate calls for humility, ‘patience’ after marriage vote

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, is asking Canadian Anglicans to display humility and love for one another in the wake of the divisive vote on same-sex marriage.Hiltz says he prays that the church not be riven, but that Canadian Anglicans strive for the “unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” mentioned by St. Paul. “More than ever we must make efforts not to turn away from one another but rather to one another, not to ignore but to recognize one another, not to walk apart but together,” the primate says. “We need as a church to work hard at maintaining our communion in Christ, for in his reconciling love is our hope and our life.”In a statement released Thursday, July 14, Hiltz says that in light of Monday’s apparent decision and its reversal Tuesday, he prayed the church would take seriously a plea made by St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians: “I beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:1-3)Of the results announced Monday, seemingly the rejection of a resolution to allow same-sex marriages, Hiltz says, “The pastoral implication was that LGBTQ2S persons and those who have accompanied them were disappointed and saddened. Many wept. The synod sat in silence.”The primate then relates how a resolution was subsequently passed to make the results public, whereupon it was revealed that one vote did not end up being recorded as falling in the Order of Clergy — a pivotal discovery, since the vote had initially appeared to fail only in that order, and by only a fraction of a percentage point. When he announced the resolution had in fact passed its first reading, the primate says, “The pastoral implication was that a number of members of synod were disappointed and saddened. Many wept. The synod sat in silence.”Hiltz notes that the issue has “deeply divided” the church for a long time, and that the division remains despite the vote. “In the midst of this division, I need to take to heart Paul’s counsel and I encourage our whole church to do the same,” he says. Paul, the primate says, also reminds us that as Christians we are “the Body of Christ, members one of another,” and that, in Hiltz’s words, “we in fact need each other, and need to find ways to make room for one another.”Canadian Anglicans, he says, must now ask themselves, “For what kind of pastoral and prophetic witness can and will we be known?”Hiltz also notes that, while the resolution to change the marriage canon will be before the next General Synod, in 2019, in the meantime it is to be considered by diocesan and provincial synods.The primate also says he commends a resolution passed by General Synod Tuesday morning that reaffirms the 2004 General Synod statement on the integrity and sanctity of same-sex relationships and also calls on the church to “engage fully…at every level” with “This Holy Estate,” the report of the commission on same-sex marriage.“I call the church to seize this opportunity,” the primate says, adding that he will ask the Council of General Synod (CoGS) to look into translating at least its executive summary and frequently asked questions, and consider “what other resources might be helpful” for Canadian Anglicans pondering the issue. He will also, Hiltz says, ask the bishops to consider how the church might encourage members to engage more with the matter, and ask them also to “show strong leadership in their dioceses in hosting events, dialogues, and studies.”Hiltz says he wants to encourage members of the church to engage much more with LGBTQ2S [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Two-Spirited] people. “We have spent a lot of time talking about them. I believe we need to take much more time to talk with them and to learn of their lived experience of covenanted love in relationships that are monogamous and life-long,” Hiltz says. “I know that will require of all of us a good deal of courage and grace.”Hiltz’s statement concludes with a request that Canadian Anglicans pray for one another with Paul’s words to the Ephesians in mind.

The inspirational story of Charlie Pattison

first_imgSunday Apr 4, 2010 The inspirational story of Charlie Pattison It’s a long weekend for many as time is spent with family and celebrations take place around the world. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to throw in an inspirational clip today, as we highlight the story of a young man who’s had to face different obstacles to most.Charlie Pattison was born without a right hand, meaning that he had to adapt to life a little differently. As with all kids though, if they know no different, it’s not an issue and one adapts.The incredible thing about Charlie is that he’s never let his disability hold him back. He in fact has always played sports, and now plays competitive rugby, mixing it up with the best of them for his club Harpendon RFC in London’s division two.As you’ll see in the clip, Charlie not only plays, but is one of their best players and despite having huge challenges ahead of him, aspires to progress further in the game.While he’s never known any different, the fact is that he gets out there and plays with such a disadvantage, when others in his position would possibly not consider giving it a go. That alone should be an inspiration for us all.Performing well and being a valued asset to the side, well that’s just fantastic.

Journalist Sabina Slonkova convicted for protecting her sources.

first_img May 21, 2021 Find out more February 11, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist Sabina Slonkova convicted for protecting her sources. Public media independence under threat in the Czech Republic and Slovenia News News News Czech RepublicEurope – Central Asia Organisation Reporters Without Borders today condemned the decision of the Prague Appeal Court on 6 February upholding a lower court ruling on 28 November that imposed a fine of 700 euros on journalist Sabina Slonkova for “damage to private life”.News website Aktualne.cz in February 2008, days ahead of presidential elections, posted photos taken by a surveillance camera close to the capital’s Savoy Hotel showing a meeting between Jiri Weigl, head of President Vaclav Klaus’s office, and Miloslav Slouf, an influential political and financial lobbyist. “The court ruling is completely baffling. The meeting was held in a public place. A campaign director is by definition a public figure in the run-up to an election. The report posted on the website Aktualne.cz is therefore of public interest. Sabina Slonkova only did her job and made legitimate use of her right to inform the public,” the worldwide press freedom organization said.“Convicting Sabina Slonkova does nothing to guarantee the protection of private life. The authorities were above all looking for the journalist’s sources. But the protection of sources, cornerstone of freedom of the press, is guaranteed under the constitution”, the organisation added.The appeal court decision comes just days after a second vote in the national assembly on a law amending the criminal code and procedures that bans the publication of phone-tapping carried out by the police and publication of all information relating to the practice. Offenders face prison sentences of one to five years and fines of up to five million koruna (about 180,000 euros).“The appeal court decision to convict Sabina Slonkova is a perfect illustration of the risks that will be run by journalists from now on after the wire-tapping vote in the Assembly. If journalists are already being fined 700 euros for publishing photos taken in public places, one hardly dares imagine the fines for publishing ‘more sensitive’ information”, said Jean-François Julliard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders. “We urge President Vaclav Klaus to veto the new law on publication of wire-tapping and not to endorse a law which will considerably obstruct the work of the investigative press”, he added.Slonkova has done many investigations into the criminal underworld and organised crime and regularly comes under pressure because of it. Police in 2002 uncovered a plot to kill her that led to the conviction of five people, including a former high official in the ministry of foreign affairs.

A Snapshot of Economic and Housing Trends

The U.S. Federal Reserve, which upgraded its economic outlook in a statement at the end of a Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, kept the rates unchanged as it monitored the economy for inflation. A report to the Secretary of the Treasury from the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association also highlighted strong economic growth in the second quarter. The report said that economic activity picked up during the quarter with 4.1 percent annualized real GDP growth, rebounding after a slowdown in growth in the first quarter of the year. “Over the past four quarters real GDP rose 2.8 percent, and growth is expected to remain strong over the remainder of 2018, with a continued fiscal boost after recently enacted tax and spending legislation,” the report to Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.The Fed, in its statement, said that the labor market continued to strengthen and economic activity rose at a strong rate. “Job gains have been strong, on average, in recent months, and the unemployment rate has stayed low. Household spending and business fixed investment have grown strongly,” the Fed said.According to the Treasury report, the two-year Treasury yield rose slightly as markets came to expect more monetary tightening from the Fed. “In contrast, the 10-year yield declined in May amidst concern about political developments in Italy and has remained in the 2.8-3 percent range in recent weeks, leading to a further flattening of the yield curve,” the report said.Are these changes in Treasury yields and a flattening yield curve likely to impact housing? While the report remained silent on the impact, it did mention that residential investment decreased during the quarter and taken together with a “recent decline in new home sales and existing home sales, housing momentum appears to have slowed down recently.”However, a strong consumer spending pattern boded well for the economy, the report indicated. “Consumer spending picked up in the second quarter, with real personal consumption expenditures growing at a 4 percent annualized rate,” the report found.   Subscribe Tagged with: consumers Economy Federal Reserve GDP Home Sales Homes HOUSING Inflation Treasury Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Home Prices Remain High, Continue Yearly Growth Next: Homebuyer Demand Cools Off August 1, 2018 1,705 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago A Snapshot of Economic and Housing Trends Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.
