Rector Collierville, TN [Lambeth Palace press release] In a unique experiment, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is to open up Lambeth Palace in London to Christians aged 20-35 – inviting them to spend a year living, studying and praying at a historic centre of the Anglican Communion.Launching in September 2015, the Community of St Anselm will gather a group of adventurous young adults from all walks of life, hungry for a challenging and formative experience of life in a praying community.The Community will initially consist of 16 people living at Lambeth Palace full-time, and up to 40 people, who live and work in London, joining part-time. The year-long programme will include prayer, study, practical service and community life.Members of the Community will live in a way the ancient monastics would recognise: drawing closer to God through a daily rhythm of silence, study and prayer. But, through those disciplines, they will also be immersed in the modern challenges of the global 21st century church.Lambeth Palace is in the process of recruiting a Prior to pioneer this new venture and direct its worship and work. The Prior will work under the auspices of the Archbishop, who will be Abbot of the Community.Archbishop Justin Welby said: “Stanley Hauerwas reminds us that the church should always be engaged in doing things that make no sense if God does not exist. The thing that would most make no sense at all if God does not exist is prayer. Living in a praying community is the ultimate wager on the existence of God, and is anything but comfortable or risk-free. Through it people subject themselves to discipline, to each other in community, and, above all, to God.“I expect this venture to have radical impact – not just for the individuals who participate but for life at Lambeth, across the Church and in the world we seek to serve. This is what we expect in following Jesus. I urge young people to step up: here is an open invitation to be transformed and to transform.”The Chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Revd Dr Jo Wells, said: “Archbishop Justin is passionate about prayer and about community. The renewal of prayer and Religious Life is the first of his three priorities, and that is what the Community of St Anselm is all about.“We are inviting people from all around the Anglican Communion – and beyond – to live a year in God’s time. There are no qualifications for joining the Community except a longing to pray, to learn, to study together the things of God, and so to be stretched in body, mind and spirit.”“Archbishop Justin longs that Lambeth Palace be not so much a historic place of power and authority, but a place from which blessing and service reach to the ends of the earth.”To find out more, visit: www.stanselm.org.uk Associate Rector Columbus, GA Posted Sep 5, 2014 Rector Washington, DC Anglican Communion, Archbishop of Canterbury, Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit a Press Release September 13, 2014 at 2:57 pm BRAVO! This should be replicated by Anglicans / Episcopalians around the world. Opening up this initiative to older people would facilitate experience and knowledge from the older members to the young, and vice-versa, which is equally important! We must cultivate our faith like any other form of education. It does not just pop up in people! The Holy Spirit calls, but we must nurture and feed our faith through dialog and sharing. Communities in faith are a holy gift.

Paris climate deal: Archbishop hails ‘remarkable achievement’ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Posted Dec 14, 2015 Featured Events Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Anglican Communion, Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Lambeth Palace] Welcoming the climate deal reached in Paris this weekend, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said the global church must be a key partner in tackling climate change. Welby’s statement follows.I warmly welcome the agreement that almost 200 states came to in Paris on Saturday, setting a clear and ambitious path towards tackling global climate change.Earlier this year I, alongside many other faith leaders, endorsed the Lambeth Declaration on Climate Change. The Declaration recognised the COP21 negotiations as a pivotal moment in the urgent global challenge to tackle climate change.”As faith leaders, we urged those participating in the negotiations to apply the best of our world’s intellectual, economic and political resources to reach a legally-binding global agreement to limit the global rise in average temperatures to 2oC. The commitment made by world leaders to hold the increase in global temperatures to ‘well below’ this level is welcome and courageous progress.Those most affected by climate change are the poor. In our prayers and actions we must demonstrate our love for them through sustainable and generous innovation.The success of the negotiations to bring together so many different countries and groups to an agreement is a remarkable achievement.One of the Anglican Communion’s marks of mission says that we are “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth”. The global church – extraordinarily led on the issue of climate change by Pope Francis and the Ecumenical Patriarch – must be a key partner in tackling climate change. As the Body of Christ, his church is called to be incarnational. Each of us has a role to play, if we are to help achieve what has been agreed in Paris.

jarun011/iStock(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has killed at least 5,148 people in the United States.Worldwide, more than 962,000 people have been diagnosed with the new respiratory virus, which causes an illness known officially as COVID-19.Over 202,000 of those diagnosed have recovered while more than 49,000 have died, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.With more than 216,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, the U.S. has by far the highest national tally in the world. Here’s how the news is developing Thursday. All times Eastern:11:45 a.m.: More than 50,000 cases in NYCNew York City — the U.S. city hit hardest by the pandemic — has over 51,000 people who have tested positive for COVID-19, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.New York state has 92,000 diagnosed cases. Of those, 13,000 are hospitalized, including 3,396 patients in intensive care units, Cuomo said.Over 7,000 people have been discharged from hospitals in the state.New York state now has lost 2,373 lives, Cuomo said.The apex in New York will depend on social distancing, Cuomo said. Depending on the model, the apex could be anywhere from 7 to 30 days away, he said.10:50 a.m.: 100-year-old charged for attending large funeralA 100-year-old is among 15 people charged for attending a funeral in Lakewood, New Jersey, in violation of the governor’s executive order banning large gatherings.About 60 to 70 people had gathered for the Wednesday funeral, and when officers tried to disperse the crowd, some “became unruly and argumentative,” according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office and the Lakewood Township Police.The 15 people — including the 100-year-old — were charged with Violating Any Rule or Regulation Adopted by the Governor During a State of Emergency.10:50 a.m.: 100-year-old charged for attending large funeralA 100-year-old is among 15 people charged for attending a funeral in Lakewood, New Jersey, in violation of the governor’s executive order banning large gatherings.About 60 to 70 people had gathered for the Wednesday funeral, and when officers tried to disperse the crowd, some “became unruly and argumentative,” according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office and the Lakewood Township Police.The 15 people — including the 100-year-old — were charged with Violating Any Rule or Regulation Adopted by the Governor During a State of Emergency.10:25 a.m.: FEMA asks Defense Department for 100,000 body bagsFEMA has requested that the Defense Department make 100,000 body bags available to help state health agencies with mortuary affairs, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed to ABC News.The request comes as the White House revealed this week that as many as 200,000 Americans could die from the coronavirus.Bloomberg, which was first to report on FEMA’s request, said the Department of Defense will initially draw from its stockpile of 50,000 bags before having to purchase more.9:44 a.m.: Vatican reports 7th positive caseOne new positive case of COVID-19 has been reported in Vatican City, the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a statement Thursday that a Holy See employee has tested positive for the coronavirus. The employee has been in isolation since mid-March, after his wife contracted the virus from an Italian hospital where she works, according to Bruni.This brings the total number of positive cases in the Vatican to seven. The city-state is surrounded by Rome.“On this occasion it is useful to clarify that, like all institutions, the various entities and departments of the Holy See and of the Vatican City State continue only in essential, mandatory and indifferent activities,” Bruni said, “clearly adopting to the maximum extent possible the appropriate measures that have already been communicated, which include remote work and shift criteria, in order to safeguard staff health.”9:07 a.m.: Florida reaches conditional approval on Carnival’s entry plan for two cruise shipsThe U.S. Coast Guard and the Florida Department of Health have reached a conditional agreement with Carnival Corp., the world’s largest cruise line, on an entry plan for two ships carrying dozens of people with flu-like symptoms. The commissioner of Florida’s Broward County, Michael Udine, said via Twitter Thursday morning that Carnival’s plan is still subject to approval from Broward County, where the ships would dock. Until then, the pair of vessels will remain outside U.S. waters. It’s unclear how many passengers would be allowed to disembark.Both cruise ships — the MS Zaandam and the MS Rotterdam — are operated by Holland America Line, a subsidiary of Carnival. Since March 22, a total of 97 guests and 136 crew on board have presented influenza-like symptoms, while at least nine people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Four people on board have died, according to Holland America Line.8:59 a.m.: Record 6.6 million Americans file for unemploymentA record-smashing 6,648,000 people filed for unemployment in the United States in the week ending March 28 amid the coronavirus crisis, according to data released by the U.S. Department of Labor on Thursday. Thousands of businesses across the country have been forced to close due to government-mandated stay-at-home orders.8:28 a.m.: Spain sees new record in coronavirus-related fatalitiesSpain has again reported the highest single-day death toll from the novel coronavirus since the pandemic began. The Spanish Ministry of Health on Thursday recorded 950 new deaths in the past 24 hours, bringing the nationwide total to 10,003 — a nearly 10.5% jump. It’s the largest one-day, in-country increase of fatalities so far, surpassing the record set by Spain last week.The Spanish health ministry also recorded 8,100 newly diagnosed cases of COVID-19, bringing the nationwide tally to 110,238 — a nearly 8% increase. Spain has one of the highest nationwide death tolls from COVID-19 in the world, second only to Italy. Spain also has the third-highest national tally of diagnosed cases, behind Italy and the United States.7:53 a.m.: New England Patriots plane carrying N95 masks from China to arrive in BostonA private jet owned by the New England Patriots professional football team carrying much-needed medical supplies from China will land in Boston on Thursday, according to Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker. Patriots CEO Robert Kraft coordinated with officials to send the National Football League team’s plane to pick up personal protective equipment that Massachusetts had bought from China. The U.S. state has purchased over a million N95 masks, and the ones arriving Thursday at Boston’s Logan International Airport represent a partial shipment, according to the governor.“As I said before, ordering vital equipment like this is only one part of the challenge and I am incredibly grateful that the Krafts worked this issue relentlessly alongside our Command Center staff to get these critical supplies to Massachusetts,” Baker said in a statement Thursday. “The Krafts, our partners Ambassador Huang Ping, Dr. Jason Li, Gene Hartigan and our COVID-19 Command Center personnel teamed up to get this job done and we eagerly await the plane landing at Logan Airport soon. Our administration will keep pursuing the PPE necessary to support our brave front-line workers who are working tirelessly to save lives during this pandemic.”7:25 a.m.: FEMA cargo plane with medical supplies from China lands in OhioA planeload of medical supplies from China has landed in the United States.The cargo plane touched down early Thursday at Rickenbacker International Airport near Columbus, Ohio.“The shipment includes supplies from Shanghai, connecting the global market with local medical distributors,” airport officials told ABC News.The relief shipment, coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, contains masks, gowns, ventilators and other supplies, all of which will go to medical distributors “in areas of greatest need,” officials said.6:46 a.m.: Over 95% of those who died in Europe were over 60, WHO saysThe head of the World Health Organization’s regional office in Europe said Thursday data shows that more than 95% of people who have died from the novel coronavirus on the continent were over the age of 60.More than half of them were older than 80, Dr. Hans Kluge said.Still, he warned that age is not the only risk factor. About 10% to 15% of people under 50 who are diagnosed with COVID-19 have moderate or severe symptoms, according to the WHO, the global health arm of the United Nations.“The very notion that COVID-19 only affects older people is factually wrong,” Kluge said during an online press conference Thursday in Copenhagen. “Young people are not invincible.”More than four in five of those who have died in Europe had at least one other chronic underlying conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or hypertension.“On a positive note,” Kluge added, “there are reports of people over the age of 100 who were admitted to hospital for COVID-19 and have now since made a complete recovery.”5:39 a.m. Cruise ships with sick passengers to arrive off Florida coastA pair of cruise ships carrying dozens of people with flu-like symptoms, including at least nine who have tested positive for COVID-19, were expected to arrive off the coast of Florida early Thursday.It’s still unclear whether passengers will be allowed to disembark.The illnesses began aboard the MS Zaandam, which set out from Buenos Aires for a South America cruise on March 7, with 1,243 guests and 586 crew on board. The voyage was supposed to end in San Antonio, Chile, on March 21 but the vessel has remained at sea since the Chilean government refused it permission to dock and disembark. At least four people on board the ship have died and several have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Holland America Line, which operates the cruise.Last week, the cruise line announced plans to move “healthy” people from the MS Zaandam to another one of its ships, the MS Rotterdam. Holland America Line President Orlando Ashford said in a video message that he wanted to dispel the myth of a healthy ship versus a sick one, explaining that the intention is for the two cruises to work in tandem so that they can reduce the workload on each vessel, “create maximum flexibility” and move passengers that have been stuck self-isolating in inside cabins for a week to cabins that have access to light and fresh air.There are now 442 guests and 603 crew aboard the MS Zaandam, and 808 guests and 583 crew on the MS Rotterdam, including a total of 311 U.S. citizens. Since March 22, at least 97 guests — 83 on Zaandam and 14 on Rotterdam — and 136 crew — all on Zaandam — have presented with influenza-like symptoms, according to Holland America Line.“We have seen a significant decline in the presentation of new cases on Zaandam, with only one new case reporting in the past 24 hours,” the cruise line said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon.Both ships are heading to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after passing through the Panama Canal. The government of Panama also denied approval to disembark guests.Holland America Line said it hopes to disembark the nearly 1,200 guests on the two ships who are “well” and fit to travel per guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Guests fit for travel will be transferred straight from the vessels to flights for onward travel home, the majority on charter flights.“Out of an abundance of caution, these guests will be transported in coaches that will be sanitized, with limited person-to-person contact and while wearing masks,” the cruise line said in its statement Wednesday. “These provisions well exceed what the CDC have advised is necessary for their travel. Guests have not left the ship since March 14 and have self-isolated in their staterooms since March 22.”The approximately 45 guests who still have “mild illness” and are unfit to travel at this time will continue to isolate on board until recovered, according to Holland America Line. For the estimated less than 10 people who need immediate critical care shoreside, the cruise line has secured approval from a local health hospital in Florida’s Broward County that has agreed to accept the patients for treatment.“This small number is the only group that will require any support from medical resources in Broward County,” the cruise line said, “and is necessary to prevent further harm to their health.”Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said it would be a mistake to bring the passengers ashore because the state’s hospitals need to be saved for residents and not “foreign nationals.”As of Wednesday afternoon, Holland America Line was still awaiting confirmation from Florida authorities to disembark the guests in Fort Lauderdale. Both ships will remain outside U.S. waters while awaiting clearance to enter.“Holland America Line calls for compassion and reason in the review and approval of our disembarkation plan by Florida officials,” the cruise line said, “and we are grateful for those that have supported our efforts.”4:11 a.m.: Dr. Fauci forced to ramp up personal security due to threatsThe U.S. government has ramped up security for Dr. Anthony Fauci, as the nation’s top medical expert on the coronavirus pandemic faces threats to his personal safety.Upon recommendation of the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Department of Justice in recent days approved a special deputization request from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for more than half a dozen special agents to provide protective services to Fauci, a Justice Department official told ABC News.Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a member of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force and has become the face of the nation’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.The Washington Post first reported the threats to Fauci and the increased security.When asked during Wednesday’s White House press briefing whether he or the task force coordinator had received any threats or if they had been given a security detail, Fauci said he was not able to answer and referred the reporter’s question to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.Trump quickly chimed in, saying, “He doesn’t need security, everybody loves him.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

I was on maternity leave or with the baby, but what was able to be just manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable. I don’t care if you are 15 or 25, if people are saying things about you that aren’t true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is damaging.”Harry said he copes with being in the spotlight by not reading what is written about him and also by meditating.“Meditation is key,” he said. “I never thought that I would be the person to do that.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
