VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Featured Events Editor’s note: This is the second in a continuing series about the reinvention of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. Other stories in the series can be found here.[Episcopal News Service – Arlington, Texas] The scene behind the altars of most Episcopal churches never changes. What is known as the reredos includes a cross, perhaps some elaborate carved wood or stonework with or without a picture and maybe a stained glass window. Such is not the case for St. Alban’s Episcopal Church.The members of this church have been worshipping on the stage and in the seats of Theater Arlington for eight years and the set of whatever play is being offered forms a reredos of sorts.Regardless of the backdrop, the Episcopalians arrive every Sunday morning, open the closet where they store the hardware of church and set up on the stage. Because it is a working theater, things happen – or don’t happen. There have been Sundays without lights or a sound system; and mornings when there’s no set but plenty of dismantled stuff all over the stage.“But, every week, people put that together and every week God shows up,” says the Rev. Kevin Johnson, who has been St. Alban’s priest-in-charge for about 18 months.St. Alban’s member Priscilla Promise said, “It’s so much more meaningful, honestly, when you put it together every Sunday and everyone’s a part of it.”The on-stage nature of Eucharist is symbolic of how St. Alban’s has found new ways to be the church in downtown Arlington. When Episcopalians found themselves exiled after their fellow parishioners chose to follow then-Bishop Jack Iker out of the Episcopal Church but claimed the St. Alban’s building, one of the Episcopal members that had a connection with Theater Arlington suggested they might gather there for worship. The theater was not used on Sunday mornings and the organization also had room for church offices and classrooms in a building across the street where it rented space.Fast-forward to 2015 when the office building went up for sale. The theater did not have the money to buy it but St. Alban’s had connections with the Episcopal Church Building Fund. Several congregations in the diocese had participated in its Recasting Assets program, a process to help congregations identify their place in the community – to understand their relevance; to build mission and value in the world around them; and to use their real-estate assets to develop financial self-sustainability.The fund agreed to loan Theatre Arlington $500,000 – structured as a mortgage – to support its work in the community and to support St. Alban’s ministry. The theater could remain in the office building and continue, along with the Downtown Arlington Arts Management Corp., to spearhead the development of the Arlington Arts District. The rent St. Alban’s pays now goes to the theater. The congregation now sees itself in partnership with the theater and vice versa.St. Alban’s has always given money for Theatre Arlington’s Camp Be a Star, a week-long theater summer camp for homeless children and children in transitional housing in Arlington. Recently, the members have begun volunteering during the camp and the two organizations are exploring ways to offer camp-like classes all year.“Everything that we’re doing, they’re a part of,” said Cindy Honeycutt, the theater’s education and outreach director, of the St. Alban’s members.The church attracts new people to its Sunday services via the internet and from signs outside on the sidewalks. “This parish, because of its history, is really committed to … valuing every human being that walks through that door – every human being,” said Johnson.For instance, there’s a homeless shelter nearby and some of its residents make their way into the theater for Eucharist.The parishioners, Johnson said, treat those folks “as real people, not as ‘homeless people’ first” and by doing so, “they get to see the God that is in that person, and it changes them.”St. Alban’s is one of the congregations benefitting from the wider church’s willingness to grant the diocese money to support its growing ministry. Johnson’s part-time salary has been increased to full time.“We’re grateful for the investment and the trust that the rest of the church has placed in this parish,” Johnson said. “I think they see, as the people of this place see, really great opportunities for expanded ministry; for new, creative ways of being church in the community.”– The Rev.

Since I had neglected to bring a stole, I dug around in the prop room and found a multi-colored sash from a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

first_imgPaul Zimmerman/WireImageBy JAMES HILL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — An attorney for Ghislaine Maxwell, the former companion of sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein, has issued the first on-the-record response to the criminal indictment against Maxwell for perjury and sex crimes against minors, calling the federal charges “meritless.”“The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York on June 29, 2020, caused a meritless indictment to be issued against Ms. Maxwell,” wrote Laura Menninger, a Colorado-based lawyer who represents Maxwell in both the criminal case and multiple civil lawsuits.The court filing comes in Maxwell’s answer to a separate civil lawsuit brought against Maxwell and Epstein’s estate in January by an anonymous accuser, Jane Doe, who alleges that she was first approached by the pair in 1994 at a summer music camp in Michigan, when Doe was 13 years old.“Jane Doe was their first known victim and was subsequently abused by Epstein and Maxwell for years as a young girl, suffering unimaginable physical and psychological trauma and distress,” her complaint alleges. “Maxwell also regularly facilitated Epstein’s abuse of Doe and was frequently present when it occurred.”Maxwell was arrested by federal authorities last week in New Hampshire and is facing a six-count federal indictment alleging that she conspired with Epstein in a multi-state sex trafficking scheme involving three unnamed minor victims between 1994 and 1997. Prosecutors contend Maxwell not only “befriended” and later “enticed and groomed multiple minor girls to engage in sex acts with Epstein, through a variety of means and methods,” but was also, at times, “present for and involved” in the abuse herself.The details in Doe’s lawsuit are substantially similar to the allegations pertaining to one of the three minor victims that are detailed in the federal indictment of Maxwell.Maxwell’s attorney noted in the Thursday filing that Maxwell was answering Does’ complaint “to the extent that she can without waiving the right against self-incrimination under the United States and New York constitutions and otherwise will invoke that right.”“Ms. Maxwell’s denials of factual allegations [in Doe’s lawsuit] shall be interpreted the same as pleading not guilty to the various counts in any criminal indictment,” Menninger wrote.According to Doe’s civil complaint, “Epstein’s system of abuse was facilitated in large part by his co-conspirator and accomplice, Maxwell, who helped supply him with a steady stream of young and vulnerable girls – many of whom were fatherless, like Jane Doe, and came from struggling families.”In the Thursday night court filing, Maxwell issued broad denials to nearly every allegation in Doe’s complaint and argued that whatever damages may have been suffered by Doe, they were not caused by Maxwell.“[Does’s] damages, if any, were the result of her own conduct,” her attorney wrote, contending that Doe had “voluntarily or negligently assumed a known risk” and had “consented to the alleged conduct.”Maxwell’s attorney contends that the case should be dismissed and is barred by statutes of limitations.Doe’s attorney Robert Glassman told ABC News Thursday that “Ms. Maxwell is once again deflecting blame on the victims themselves for the significant role she played in causing the victims irreparable damage. We are disappointed that she is taking this position, but look forward to holding her responsible for what she did.”Maxwell has not yet entered a plea to the criminal charges. She is currently being held at a federal jail in Brooklyn. Federal prosecutors argue that she is an extreme flight risk and should be held in custody until trial. A bail hearing is scheduled for July 14.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgABC NewsBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — At least 21 states are activating National Guard troops in preparation of possible attacks this week.The FBI is warning that armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols as well on Capitol Hill after a group called for “storming” state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings on Inauguration Day.In Michigan, where armed militia breached the state Capitol in May, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that the National Guard would be activated from Monday to Wednesday to provide additional security and crowd control measures. “Last week’s horrific scene on Capitol Hill was an attack on our democracy and shows that we need to be adequately prepared for acts of violence as President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in as our 46th President of the United States,” said Whitmer, who faced a kidnapping plot against her in October.Small protests took place in Ohio on Sunday, where Gov. Mike DeWine authorized 1,000 soldiers and airmen to provide assistance to federal authorities in Washington, D.C. Several hundred more are remaining in Columbus to protect citizens, public buildings and private property from “civil unrest,” according to a statement from DeWine’s office.Other states where National Guard troops have been activated include California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach Trump for incitement of insurrection on the Capitol, making him the first president to ever be impeached twice. The vote triggers a trial in the Senate, but senators will not return early for an impeachment trial  prior to the inauguration. Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgThe responses of phytoplankton populations to seasonal changes in radiation flux in two Antarctic lakes with extensive winter ice-cover are described. A phytoplankton capable of photosynthesis was found throughout the year in both systems. During winter, low incident radiation combined with thick layers of snow and ice prevented in situ photosynthesis becoming detectable. The beginning of spring was marked by a reduction in snow cover which resulted in a considerable increase in surface penetrating radiation. Planktonic algae rapidly adapted to utilise these increased levels efficiently, though they still showed characteristics of strong shade adaptation. Loss of ice cover at the start of the short open water period further increased the radiation levels and a summer population developed which was much less shade adapted. Saturation and photoinhibition effects were widespread during this period as the algae proved unable to utilise high radiation levels efficiently. They were however effective at the radiation fluxes prevalent in the lower part of the rapidly circulating water columns.last_img read more

West. “You are all truly outstanding representatives of our Navy.” Currently, Constitution Sailors are set to participate in seven Fleet Weeks and five parades for War of 1812 commemorations and the ship’s Sailors are ready.“This is a monumental occasion for our Navy and our Nation,” said West. “If you’re not familiar with how the War of 1812 shaped both our country and its high regard for seapower, I encourage you to read up on it. I’m convinced you’ll be as enthusiastic about giving it the proper recognition as our senior leaders are.”During MCPON’s visit, he shot a video to promote War of 1812 events and climbed the ship’s center mast.“I have been here several times but I have never had the opportunity to climb the mast, and this will remain a great memory for me,” said West. “When I see these young Sailors climbing so fast and swift, it is a great compliment to the training and safety found, not only here, but throughout our Navy.”MCPON spoke to the Sailors about where the Navy is today and complimented the command on its dedication to preserving history. At 214 years old, Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat.“I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity,” said Aviation Electronics Technician 3rd Class Brian Pickett. “One of my best experiences here was actually being stationed up on the foremast of the ship – it is sort of like ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ if you will. Jack Sparrow up there holding onto the lines, seeing the horizon in the distance as we set off from the harbor here; there is no substitute for that. I look forward to what is yet to come.”“I love being on board USS Constitution,” said Damage Controlman Fireman Ashley Fairfax. “Since I have been here I have grown as a Sailor; a disciplined Sailor for the United States Navy. I am proud to say I am a part of the most powerful Navy in the world.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 03, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: Petty Share this article View post tag: Constitution View post tag: Naval View post tag: visits Back to overview,Home naval-today Master Chief Petty Officer of Navy Visits USS Constitution Sailors last_img read more
