Archbishop invites young Christians to spend year praying at Lambeth

first_img 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.

Neymar wows crowd after outrageous pass with his backside [VIDEO]

first_imgHe enjoys wat he does— KwesiAsare (@KwesiAsare15) January 23, 2020 Brazil star, Neymar, is one of the most skilful players you’ll ever find on a football pitch.While most players are hesitant in showing too many flashy moves on the field during matches, Neymar has, throughout his career, never been shy of the occasional flick or nutmeg.However, the most ardent Neymar stan might look at you funny if you told them what the Brazilian did on Wednesday night.When a pass over the top was landing behind him in the French League Cup against Reims, Neymar, instead of turning to meet it, stuck out his backside which the ball connected with, resulting in a perfect pass to his teammate.PSG eventually won the match 3-0 to progress to the final, with Marquinhos and Tanguy Kouassi on the scoresheet, along with an own-goal from Ghislain Konan.PSG winning & Neymar with a butt pass 😂#PSG pic.twitter.com/VCVxjJkqpv— Brian Nel™ (@nel17brian) January 22, 2020It was an outrageous and brilliant skill from Neymar and earned him wows and praise from the watching crowd, which moved quickly onto social media.This guy is just on vacation in the french league— NKAY (@nkay_11) January 23, 2020 a di bi y3 f3 😍— #LLJ💤 (@SlaidOnN) January 23, 2020 Man, when he’s playing like Neymar we know, the whole world is happy, we love him, if you hate him, you need to seek help— Thaema la Kamo (@marty_R200) January 23, 2020 Baller!!!!— Bipobiso 💫 (@BlaqBima) January 22, 2020last_img read more

Gunning for Guns

The victim, Pawan Sharma, was allegedly dragged away by unidentified persons in the early hours. The caper was unravelled the same day when it was discovered that Sharma had staged,Last month, the Amritsar Police rushed to the scene of what they believed was the kidnapping of a bank executive. The victim, Pawan Sharma, was allegedly dragged away by unidentified persons in the early hours. The caper was unravelled the same day when it was discovered that Sharma had staged his kidnapping to obtain an arms licence. Recent executive orders from the Union Home Ministry specify gun licences can be handed out only to “persons who may face or perceive grave and imminent threat to their lives”. You could be a coffee planter in Coorg trying to protect your estate from marauding wild boars or a trader in Kanpur worried about the spurt in kidnappings, but you will get a new arms licence only if you can prove an imminent threat to your life, which has to be verified by the police.Chidambaram feels that proliferation of arms is disturbing law and order.The new directives follow a proposal by Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram to undertake the most radical modification of the Indian Arms Act since it was enacted in 1959. From an obligation to give out an arms licence, it has now become entirely discretionary. If it was earlier only difficult to obtain an arms licence, it will now be virtually impossible for the aam admi to own a gun. The proposed Arms (Amendment) Bill 2010 which has been circulated in Parliament only talks about making police verification mandatory. But the executive orders issued by the Home Ministry to state home secretaries on March 31 push for far stringent restrictions like arms applications only for those able to prove an imminent threat to their lives. This modification in the arms policy has incensed a small but influential group of pro-gun lobbyists, the National Association for Gun Rights India (NAGRI), which has coalesced around senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, and is pushing for a status quo. They are in favour of police verification but argue that the stealthy executive orders are an infringement of personal liberty and creates a new caste system of elite gun owners. A view that is not shared by NGOs like the Control Arms Foundation of India (CAFI) who support stricter gun laws. Digvijay, who recently took on the home minister for treating the Naxal problem as a law and order issue, has once again crossed swords with him as the chief patron of a lobby that espouses the right to bear arms. The reason may not be too far to see.Gun ownership is an emotive issue, especially in north India where these are flaunted as status symbols and fired at weddings. Districts in Madhya Pradesh have promised to fast-track gun licences as an incentive for vasectomy. Guns are a substitute for a non-existent rule of law: armed villagers in Bihar’s Kaimur district used their licenced rifles to rout a group of Naxals after a 26-hour firefight.advertisement”We are not a healthy democracy. Rules are bent with impunity and politicians twist the law to hand out arms licence to their stooges,” says Prakash Singh, former DGP, Uttar Pradesh, welcoming the modifications. “It is a draconian law which seeks to dilute constitutional privileges of right to life and property. Why should only MPs and Government officials be eligible for licences, why not the common man?” asks BJP MP S.S. Ahluwalia.”The changes are essential. Existing rules are bent with impunity by politicians to hand out arms licences to their stooges.”Prakash Singh, Former DGP, Uttar Pradesh”It is a draconian Bill. Why are only MPs and Government officials eligible for licences, why not the common man?”S.S. Ahluwalia, BJP MP The debate has begun reverberating within the corridors of Parliament. At least a dozen MPs from the Congress and the BJP, including Digvijay, Jaswant Singh, Naveen Jindal and S.S. Ahluwalia, recently met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to protest against the Bill. Manmohan is believed to have shrugged and said that the Home Minister had some persuasive arguments to limit gun licences. The gun lobby says that the tightening of the provisions of the Arms Act of 1959, which made it obligatory for the Government to provide arms licences if the citizens met all the requisite criteria, comes at a time when the home minister has admitted to India having among the lowest police-to-population ratios in the world. The Bill is silent on sports shooters who have brought international fame to the country. “There has to be a different set of rules for sportspersons otherwise the sport will die,” says former Indian shooting ace Moraad Ali Khan and now government observer (shooting).advertisementChidambaram has trained his guns on the Arms Act ostensibly because he believes State Governments may be issuing arms licences liberally. “Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district has just 500 gun licences whereas Gurgaon, which is the size of just one of its tehsils, has over 10,000 arms licences,” says a district magistrate in Haryana, welcoming the modifications. The Bill mentions the proliferation of arms and ammunition disrupting social order and “proliferation of arms, whether licenced or illegal, vitiating the law and order situation, and holding of sophisticated arms by the conflicting parties directly contributes towards lethality of violent acts”.The arms lobby says the Bill is fundamentally flawed and the Home Ministry has not conducted any research to prove any of these conclusions. “The new Act violates the basic principle of the citizen’s right to self-defence. The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) figures say that licenced firearms are used in less than 2 per cent of all murders,” says Rahoul Rai, president, NAGRI. The grouping also takes exception to licenced owners being lumped with those holding illicit arms. There are no estimates as to the total number of licenced and unlicenced firearms in the country (the executive orders seek to establish a central database of legal arms) but then India is a haven for illicit arms, particularly the North and North-east. CAFI estimates say that since 1990, security forces in Jammu and Kashmir and the North-eastern states have seized over 40,000 illicit firearms.The Bill is among a series of Government moves since the introduction of the Arms Act that makes it progressively difficult for citizens to obtain arms. This, when you can still purchase an AK-47 in Kashmir for Rs 10,000. Gun owners say the new law will only encourage corruption. “A majority of crimes are committed using illegal arms. Criminals and anti-national elements do not bother to apply for arms licences,” says Abhijeet Singh of NAGRI. “Instead of cracking down on the underground arms market, the Home Ministry is going after soft targets-the licenced owners,” he adds. The last round has not been fired yet.CONCEALED ARMSThe Home Ministry’s executive orders are far stricter than the BillARMS ACT 1959ARMS (AMENDMENT) BILL 2010MORE POWER TO LICENSING AUTHORITYPolice verification optional.

SaskPower says likely no more carbon capture and storage projects due to

first_imgREGINA – SaskPower says it won’t likely support more carbon capture and storage projects due to costs.President and CEO Mike Marsh says the technology is still worthwhile, but the current economic climate doesn’t warrant moving forward with such projects because the low cost of natural gas makes that a more viable option.SaskPower’s Boundary Dam power plant in Estevan takes emissions from coal generation and stores them.When the $1.5-billion facility opened with much fanfare in October 2014, the goal was to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by one million tonnes annually; in 2016, SaskPower said the plant was on track to capture 800,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.SaskPower had to pay $7.3 million in penalties to Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) in 2015 because the plant wasn’t operating enough to deliver all the captured carbon dioxide promised to Cenovus.The Crown corporation must decide next year what options are best to retrofit its last two coal generated units at the plant.Boundary Dam was forced offline several times in 2015. SaskPower’s annual report that year said the power plant faced technical and mechanical issues which “prevented the plant from achieving an acceptable level of reliability and performance.”Premier Brad Wall touted Saskatchewan’s carbon capture and storage technology at an international climate change conference in 2015.(CJME, The Canadian Press)Note to readers: This is a corrected story.
