James Cowan, de la Iglesia Anglicana de CanadáCuando el Consejo Ejecutivo se reunió en su penúltima reunión antes de la Convención General, las fuertes lluvias golpeaban las ventanas al sur del Instituto Marítimo como pequeños sólidos puñetazos, haciendo que todos estuviéramos agradecidos por el consuelo de secos espacios cálidos. Esta fue la tercera reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo de este trienio en este lugar, un reflejo de una estrategia de ahorro de dinero y de convenir en reunirse en un par de lugares, Linthicum Heights, MD, y Salt Lake City, UT. En trienios anteriores, el Consejo Ejecutivo se había movido alrededor de la Iglesia, reuniéndose una vez en cada una de nuestras nueve provincias, pero la nueva disciplina de escoger sólo dos lugares para ahorrar dinero es un reflejo de nuestra voluntad de adaptarnos a las cambiantes condiciones económicas.El proyecto de presupuesto para el trienio 2013-2015 eclipsó todos los demás asuntos del Consejo Ejecutivo en esta reunión. La conversación sobre el presupuesto se inició en la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo en junio de 2011, celebrada también en el Instituto Marítimo, cuando los miembros fueron retados a “cambiar la conversación”, y buscar una manera de enfrentarse a los retos de adaptación a que se enfrentan todas las denominaciones en una era post-cristiana con la disminución del interés en la iglesia institucional. El Comité Conjunto Permanente de Finanzas para la Misión (FFM) ya había comenzado a trabajar con el tesorero a mediados de 2011 en un modelo de proyección financiera y determinó que el modelo de gasto actual es insostenible. En ese momento, se señaló que los presidentes de las comisiones permanentes del Consejo Ejecutivo anteriormente no habían proporcionado mucha información en el proceso presupuestario. El nuevo formado Comité Ejecutivo del Consejo Ejecutivo fue encargado de desarrollar un proceso para el presupuesto del trienio que retara a la iglesia a adoptar nuevas formas de involucrarse en la misión de Dios.El viernes, el primer día de esta reunión, Matthew J. Price, Director de Investigación Analítica del Grupo de Pensiones de la Iglesia Episcopal, se unió a C. Kirk Hadaway, Director de Investigación de la Iglesia Episcopal, para ofrecer una presentación de los datos recogidos de los informes parroquiales de 2010 y de la encuesta de agosto de 2011 encargada por el Comité del Consejo Ejecutivo. La encuesta fue diseñada como una herramienta de “escucha rápida” dirigida a obtener una imagen más clara de las actividades de la misión mejor logradas a nivel congregacional, diocesano y provincial frente al nivel de toda la iglesia. Estos dos conjuntos de datos estadísticos, junto con las aportaciones del personal, ayudaron a informar para la preparación de dos proyectos de presupuesto para ser revisados y discutidos por el Consejo Ejecutivo.Los cinco comités permanentes del Consejo Ejecutivo discutieron el presupuesto en la tarde del viernes e informaron de los resultados durante la sesión plenaria de la mañana del sábado. Algunos informes reflejaban un gran cuadro de perspectivas teológicas, mientras que otros comités prefirieron analizar profundamente hasta ofrecer comentarios sobre partidas individuales del proyecto de presupuesto. A estos informes siguieron animados debates de grupos reunidos, cuyos resultados también se dieron a conocer. Luego el Comité del Consejo Ejecutivo se reunió el sábado por la tarde para consolidar esta información y desarrollar un refinado proyecto de presupuesto para la consideración del Consejo Ejecutivo en la reunión del domingo.El debate del domingo reiteró la preocupación del Consejo Ejecutivo de que el presupuesto reflejara la visión y misión de la iglesia, emergiera de una teología de abundancia y reflejara las Cinco Marcas de la Misión. La discusión también reflejó una apreciación real y deseo de integrar a nuestros socios internos y externos afectados por el presupuesto. Esta apreciación se ve atenuada por el entendimiento de que el proceso no siempre nos da tiempo para mantener esas conversaciones. Y así vivimos en esa tensión.El debate también dejó en claro que el Consejo Ejecutivo reconoce que un presupuesto es un documento vivo. Confiamos en que el personal trabaje en los detalles y matices para hacerlo un verdadero instrumento de renovación de nuestra vida en la iglesia.El Consejo Ejecutivo se reunió al mediodía para la celebración de la  Eucaristía presidida por el Rvdmo. James Cowan, de la Iglesia Anglicana de Canadá, junto con el miembro del Consejo, la Rvda. Dr. Lee Alison Crawford, que celebraba el 18 aniversario de su ordenación.En el sermón el obispo Cowan nos recordó que la “‘Buena Nueva’ no trata de equidad, trata de la Gracia y la Misericordia, de recibir lo que no merecemos, y de no recibir lo que merecemos”.-Preguntó, “¿Quién es profeta en la Iglesia de hoy? ¿Cómo se escucha a esa persona? ¿Dónde están las comunidades en las que vemos el poder de la enseñanza de Dios? ¿Cómo son utilizados la profecía y el poder de la enseñanza de Dios por nosotros – colectiva e individualmente?“A medida que nos esforzamos con miedo y temblor a trabajar por nuestra salvación, o por lo que la colecta llama, “la renovación de nuestras vidas”, ¿cómo podemos apoyar y alentarnos mutuamente en nuestros esfuerzos?”Estas preguntas resonaron profundamente en un Consejo metido en el trabajo presupuestario.Después de otra hora de deliberación, el Consejo Ejecutivo remitió el presupuesto al Comité Conjunto Permanente de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB & F), que se reunirá inmediatamente después de la clausura de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo en el Instituto Marítimo. El PB & F finalizará un presupuesto para que sea presentado en la Convención General.El Consejo Ejecutivo jugó un papel más importante en el desarrollo del presupuesto de este trienio, porque entendió que en un momento en el que el dicho de que las cosas siguen como siempre ya no servía a la iglesia en su respuesta a la misión de Dios, entonces se necesitaba un presupuesto movido por una visión renovada. El Consejo Ejecutivo decidió tomar parte en la construcción de la nueva visión de las tareas que tenemos ante nosotros. El esfuerzo cambió al propio Consejo Ejecutivo, obligándole a trabajar de una manera nueva.“Dios transforma la pobreza de nuestra naturaleza”. —El Rvdmo. James CowanEn otros asuntos el Consejo Ejecutivo aprobó las resoluciones:Las resoluciones presentadas por el Consejo Ejecutivo en esta reunión que no estaban en el Calendario de Consentimiento fueron las siguientes:Una declaración de oposición a las leyes que hacen ilegal la enseñanza de estudios étnicos y penalizan financieramente a los distritos escolares por la incorporación de estudios étnicos en sus planes de estudio.Una declaración de apoyo de “Permitir que las niñas sean niñas”, que es una campaña mundial para terminar con el matrimonio infantil. Vea theelders.org para obtener más información acerca de esta campaña patrocinada por Los Ancianos (The Elders), que es una organización sin fines de lucro creada por Nelson Mandela en 2007, compuesta por líderes mundiales que ofrecen su influencia colectiva y experiencia para apoyar la creación de la paz.Una declaración deplorando la gran tragedia humana que aún se está produciendo en las Tres Áreas Protocolo de Abyei, Estado del Nilo Azul y el Estado del Kordofan Sur de Sudán de la continuada guerra general librada contra su pueblo por el Gobierno de Sudán; un renovado llamamiento al gobierno de Estados Unidos a que mantenga las sanciones económicas y los esfuerzos diplomáticos con urgencia para asegurar la paz y poner fin a las graves violaciones de los derechos humanos y la brutalidad militar en curso contra el pueblo en todas las áreas del Sudán; una reafirmación de la solidaridad de la Iglesia con la Iglesia Episcopal de Sudán y con sus pastores y sacerdotes, y su liderazgo y el cuidado de todo el pueblo de Sudán; y un recordatorio para todos los episcopales a perseverar en la oración y en la defensa de todo el pueblo de Sudán, especialmente en las regiones devastadas por la guerra.Se recibió y aceptó un informe final y las recomendaciones incluidas del Grupo de Trabajo de la Estrategia de Archivos EC020 que ha estudiado los planes para la construcción de los Archivos de la Iglesia Episcopal en Austin, Texas. El Grupo de Trabajo recomienda una dirección general en favor del Proyecto de Archivos en un contexto de incertidumbre económica y del cambio institucional y hace hincapié en la flexibilidad y la colaboración entre un equipo de profesionales de la construcción y del desarrollo, la Junta de Archivos, así como el personal ejecutivo de la DFMS. El Consejo Ejecutivo expresó con aplausos su agradecimiento por la labor de la Junta, que se ha completado.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Open Enrollment for 2017 Healthcare Plans is Happening NowWhen selecting the right health plan for you and your family there are lots of different factors to consider. One thing to always keep in mind is there is a reason plans and premiums are different. It is not always the most obvious items, such as deductibles or copays. Sometimes it can be even more complicated issues, such as the network of providers or if you qualify for a subsidy.If you do qualify for a subsidy, do you also qualify for a CSR? Cost Share Reduction lowers the amount a customer has to pay for out-of­-pocket deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments.Are you a member of a federally recognized tribe? Does the plan you have decided on cover dental? Would a separate Stand-Alone qualified Dental plan be a better choice? And more … Sounds confusing, doesn’t it?And now that several carriers have decided to no longer offer health insurance through the Marketplace for 2017 coverage, there is even more confusion!IMPORTANT DATESHere are the important dates to remember if you are enrolling for the first time or you plan to re-enroll or change your health insurance plan:November 1, 2016: Open Enrollment starts. This is the first day you can enroll, re-enroll, or change a 2017 insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2017.December 15, 2016: Last day to enroll in or change plans for coverage to start January 1, 2017.January 1, 2017: 2017 coverage starts for those who enroll or change plans by December 15.January 31, 2017: Last day to enroll in or change a 2017 health plan. After this date, you can enroll or change plans only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period“There is no additional cost to have a local, licensed and trained agent help you,” says Robin Gump, licensed agent and owner of Mid Florida Agencies. “There is no reason to wade through pages and pages of websites to find the information you need.

More than half (55%) of these (equating) to 3.9 million UK adults, never expected to need it before this.The research was commissioned by The Covid-19 Support Fund, established by the insurance and long-term savings industry. It also shows a significant proportion (75%) of people using charity services this year have had to do so regularly, while two in five of these adults say there is no end in sight yet as they expect to need charity support for at least another six months and possibly longer.It found that this dependency on charity is more likely among adults in full-time employment and those aged 18-34.. Londoners are also disproportionately dependent on charity compared to elsewhere in the UK, 95% of Londoners who have used charity support have been dependent on it.Mental health support (35%), food support (28%), and employment support (25%) are the most common types of charity services that people have used. Those aged 18-34 are most likely to have received some form of employment support (35%), while 40% of 35-54s have had mental health support from a charity.When asked to consider the potential impact of the crisis without support from charities, two fifths of those who had support think they would have felt depressed (41%) and roughly the same number anxious (37%). These figures rise to 45% and 40% respectively among 18-34s.However, many of those who had support say they feel reassured that there are charities there to help during crisis (42%), and relieved that there was someone there for them (39%).Overall, two in five UK adults think they have a better understanding of how charities in the UK can help people since the Covid-19 crisis began. While there’s been a boom in the recognition of support from charities, as two thirds (67%) of UK adults say they are now more likely than before to seek charity help, people are also more likely to support charities since the pandemic began, with two in five (42%) saying they are more likely to donate and nearly one in three (30%) would be more likely to volunteer.However, despite these findings, three in five (58%) are concerned about the drop off in funding that charities are experiencing because of the crisis.Yvonne Braun, Executive Lead at the Association of British Insurers for the Covid-19 Support Fund, said:“This research paints a worrying picture of how dependent people across the UK have been on charity support since the beginning of this crisis. The support people have needed hasn’t been a one-off, instead many have required regular help from these organisations. And many people would have suffered more without the help that many charities have provided them with this year. It is also clear that without charities, the emotional impact of not having any support could have worsened this crisis even more.”“That’s why it is so crucial that business communities come together to financially support the vital work of charities now. We’re proud that the Covid-19 Support Fund is enabling charities to carry out their vital work in this unprecedented time, and we’re grateful to all the firms across the insurance and long-term savings industry who have generously donated this year.”The Covid-19 Support Fund was launched by the insurance and long-term savings industry in May to help those who have been hardest hit by the pandemic and has since raised over £100m.center_img Melanie May | 22 December 2020 | News Covid-19 Support Fund survey highlights pandemic-fuelled rise in demand for charity services About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

first_imgRallying for the Dreamers in Los Angeles, Feb. 28.Over a hundred people participated Feb. 28 in a “Fighting to Stay Home” march from McArthur Park in downtown Los Angeles to the Metropolitan Detention Center. They were marching in solidarity with the Dreamers who are marching 250 miles from New York to Washington, D.C., demanding an end to deportations and terror against migrants living in the U.S. One of their demands is for a “Clean Dream Act,” so their lives are not used to further Trump’s repressive demand for increased Mexican border security and a racist wall.Claudia Treminio of Movimiento Consecha said: “We are demanding a Clean Dream Act to provide undocumented youth permanent protection, without pushing the rest of the immigrant community further into the shadows. We will be taking over the streets to show other immigrants that it is important to make sure our voices are heard, to organize and show up. Especially at this moment in which our communities have been terrorized by ICE” [Immigration and Customs Enforcement].Movimiento Consecha initiated and led the action made up primarily of undocumented youth. Other participating organizations included American Indian Movement, Union del Barrio, California for Progress, and Workers World Party, which helped provide signage.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img News to go further News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies As press freedom has been on a steady downward trend in the United States of America, President Donald Trump took some of his restrictive anti-press practices with him on his official trip to Asia last week. From denying reporters access to certain events, to refusing to take questions, Trump was able to give the leaders of China, Vietnam and the Philippines a front-row seat to his disdain for freedom of the press. Past presidents have typically made it a point to take journalists’ questions during trips abroad as a political showing of America’s commitment to the First Amendment. Former President Obama was heavily criticized for not allowing questions on his first trip there in 2009, but convinced the Chinese press secretary to take questions when he returned five years later. These official visits have usually been an opportunity for reporters to question foreign officials about issues typically off limits to local reporters, like a given country’s human rights record. For example, during Obama’s trip in 2014, a New York Times reporter was able to question China’s restrictive visa policies that targeted foreign journalists. No questions allowed at press conference per Chinese requestHowever, this wasn’t the case with Trump. American reporters following the President on the China portion of his trip were not given the opportunity to ask either Trump or Chinese President Xi Jinping questions during a joint “press conference” that took place November 9. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated “It was at the Chinese insistence there were no questions today.” Though both Trump and Xi Jinping are known for their hostility towards the press, there is a notable difference between the two countries that makes Trump’s refusal to take questions more concerning. In addition to being the largest prison in the world for both professional and citizen journalists, China has routinely denied medical care to journalists who fall ill in detention. This recently lead to two deaths, including that of Nobel Peace Laureate Liu Xiaobo. While China may be one of the worst offenders in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index (176/180 countries), Vietnam ranks just above it. Yet Trump failed to defend access for his press pool there as well. Access to APEC summit in Vietnam restricted During the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit that took place in Danang, Vietnam on November 10 and 11, the White House press corps’ access to key events was severely limited, leaving many journalists wondering what was happening behind closed doors. First, reporters were barred from covering an APEC dinner on the 10th, which featured guests like Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The press’ exclusion from the dinner was all the more significant given that the investigation into Trump campaign collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential election and the White House’s repeated denial are currently dominating media coverage in the US. On November 11, the majority of the White House press pool were kept in a separate room and barred from covering a photo-op between Trump and other Asian leaders. However, A Fox News camera crew and an official White House photographer were permitted to cover the event and tasked with sharing their footage with the rest of the pool. Restricting reporters’ access while in Vietnam, which ranks 175 out of 180 countries on RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, is certainly an odd way to display American exceptionalism in freedom of information. The Vietnamese government has systematically criminalized freedom of expression during the past year by means of censorship, arbitrary detention and covert state violence. At least 25 bloggers have been arrested or deported. Yet this issue was never able to be raised publicly during the trip due to access restrictions. “How is the US government supposed to advocate for press freedom abroad when it can’t even guarantee access to its own journalists traveling with the President?” asks Margaux Ewen, Advocacy and Communications Director for RSF North America. “Leaders of some of the most repressive countries in the world for journalists are witnessing just how little the American President values the First Amendment, which is completely detrimental to any future US efforts to push for the release of bloggers and reporters in places like China and Vietnam, or greater protection for journalists in the Philippines.” “President Trump is providing the region’s authoritarian leaders with a blank check,” added Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “APEC’s members should remind their partners of the need to respect fundamental rights as, for example, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has done, albeit cautiously, while in Vietnam and the Philippines.” Duterte’s anti-press insults a laughing matter for Trump When asked about the lack of coverage during the summit on Saturday, Press Secretary Sanders claimed she didn’t realize media access would be as limited during the trip and pledged to rectify that during the remainder of the trip in the Philippines. Yet by Monday, November 13, the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte was calling journalists “spies” while posing for pictures before a bilateral meeting with Trump. Duterte’s jab was made in response to a reporter’s question of whether President Trump would discuss human rights abuses while in the Philippines, following harsh criticism of Duterte’s infamous “drug war,” which has resulted in thousands of extrajudicial killings. Shortly after Duterte’s comments, which merely elicited laughter from Trump, journalists were escorted out of the room and weren’t allowed to ask any further questions. Over the past year, four journalists have been killed in the Philippines in relation to their work, with Duterte’s anti-press rhetoric becoming increasingly violent. He once infamously claimed that “just because you’re a journalist you are not exempted from assassination, if you’re a son of a bitch.” Referring to corrupt journalists at the time, he added that “you won’t be killed if you don’t do anything wrong.” That the US president should find comments like these a laughing matter represents a serious blow to the democratic principles that lay the foundation of the United States of America. The Philippines ranks 127 out of 180 countries on RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The United States ranks 43rd.
