Cada congregación no tardará en recibir por correo un cartel múltiple y un paquete de materiales que, con el nombre de Preparándose para Convertirse en la Amada Comunidad [Preparing to Become the Beloved Community],contiene oraciones, reflexiones y actividades para cada semana de Adviento. Los materiales también pueden descargarse aquí.Preparándose se elabora a partir del documento y los materiales del concepto de Convertirse en la Amada Comunidad  que el obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Clark Jennings y los funcionarios que les respaldan presentaron a principios de este año. El documento plantea el compromiso a largo plazo de la Iglesia Episcopal con la reparación, la reconciliación y la justicia raciales.“Durante el Adviento, los cristianos se centran en cuánto necesitamos a Jesús para llevar luz, recuperación y esperanza a un mundo quebrantado”, señaló la Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga del Obispo Primado para la Evangelización, la Reconciliación y el Cuidado de la Creación. “Este es un tiempo misterioso y vulnerable. Nos abrimos a Cristo. Nos abrimos a distintos prójimos y extraños que son Cristo entre nosotros. Esperamos que estos materiales respondan al auténtico anhelo de los episcopales de vivir como el pueblo del Movimiento de Jesús.A través del Adviento, una campaña en las redes sociales de la Iglesia Episcopal también promoverá esperanza, reflexión y acción en torno a la reconciliación racial; únase o siga usando el hashtag #adventbeloved.El Adviento comienza el domingo 3 de diciembre y concluye el Día de Navidad.Preparándose para llegar a ser la Amada Comunidad fue creado por el Equipo de Reconciliación Racial de la Iglesia Episcopal.Los materiales están concebidos para el uso de personas de todas las edades, entre ellos foros de adultos, Escuela Dominical, agrupaciones de mujeres y de hombres, preparativos de Adviento, reuniones de la Junta Parroquial, estudios de confirmación y mucho más.Cada una de las cuatro semanas de Adviento incluye lecturas bíblicas, reflexiones y actividades centradas en la trayectoria en espiral hacia la reparación, la reconciliación y la justicia raciales:• Adviento 1: Contar la verdad acerca de nuestras iglesias y razas.• Adviento 2: Proclamar el Sueño de la Amada Comunidad.• Adviento 3: Practicar el Camino del Amor en el modelo de Jesús.• Adviento 4: Enmendar la ruptura en las instituciones y en la sociedad.El concepto original de Convertirse en la Amada Comunidad expone estos temas visualmente en torno a un laberinto. “Es una manera diferente de abordar esta labor”, dijo Heidi Kim, funcionaria encargada de la Reconciliación Racial. “Es en verdad una invitación a la formación espiritual y a la transformación racial”.Para más información, diríjase a Emily Gallagher en [email protected] o 212-716-6242.#adventbeloved An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Callscenter_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Featured Events The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

They proposed to use part of the existing infrastructure of their current one-story home in the urban center of the city, partially exchanging their residential space to make it productive, living alongside it. As a strategy to save costs, two actions were carried out; In the first place, partitions, beams and columns initially designed for a 4-story building, were reused, transforming it into a physical training center. Secondly, a barter was established, where the design and construction management of the project were exchanged for free access to the gym for a defined time to the architecture team. In this way, the idea that the city is developed from decisions, agreements, exchanges and ventures of each inhabitant is vindicated.Save this picture!© JAG StudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© JAG StudioIt is proposed to domesticate the spaces of social interaction and open them to the street, with the intention of making it a livable place and generator of memory, where the objective of exercising is as important as meeting your neighbors.Save this picture!© JAG StudioBardales was developed with limited resources, where both, technical and material solutions were designed as it became available; it can be said that the limitation was an important source of creativity, to design with what is necessary.

Inside it is distributed in weight, dance, cardio, and boxing activities, added to an integration terrace on the top floor of the building. This idea of ​​heterogeneous activities drives the decision to avoid dividing walls – except for the bathrooms-, creating a connection between activities, horizontally and vertically. The front end avoids the use of glass since it is solved with an 8m high mobile wooden lattice system, allowing control of ventilation, solar incidence, and rain. In this way, not only is thermal control and safety guaranteed, but users are encouraged to have more direct contact with the neighborhood.Save this picture!© JAG StudioBardales reflects on the way in which urban facilities are developed in cities and the usual conditions in which people exercise; It is an idea that energizes and integrates a group eager to connect with their city and its possibilities of generating community.Save this picture!© JAG StudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© JAG StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessA Post-Pandemic Futuristic Middle School and a Super Green Campus in Shenzhen: 12 Un…ArticlesHaru-No-Ogawa Community Park Toilet / Shigeru Ban ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Projects Bardales Urban Training Center / Natura Futura ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveBardales Urban Training Center / Natura Futura Arquitectura ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/946374/bardales-urban-training-center-natura-futura-arquitectura Clipboard Bardales Urban Training Center / Natura Futura Arquitectura ArchDaily Gymnasiumlast_img read more

Journalists and media outlets from 12 countries have been shortlisted for three international awards. “Many of the nominees face constant threats or have been imprisoned several times for their work – yet these journalists refused to be silenced and continue to raise their voices against the abuse of power, corruption and other crimes. Rather than dishearten us, the difficult situations these journalists face inspire us with the will to achieve change. Courage in the pursuit of journalistic ideals is a formidable motivating force for all those who want to address humankind’s most important challenges.” says Christophe Deloire, secretary-general of the international organization of Reporters Without Borders.Among them are a Russian investigative journalist who has already been attacked several times, a Vietnamese journalist who has been beaten and imprisoned for her work, and Pakistan’s oldest daily newspaper, which is repeatedly harassed by officials. AWARD FOR COURAGE, INDEPENDENCE AND IMPACTFor the Prize for Courage, the nominees are:Igor Rudnikov from Russia – The founder of the newspaper Novye Kolesa has been the target of several attacks because of his research on corruption and the misuse of public funds. He was also jailed during almost two years for his work.Eman Al-Nafjan from Saudi Arabia – The blogger and journalist has campaigned massively for women to be allowed to drive cars and get more rights. Arrested along with other women’s rights activists, she was freed conditionally. Considered as a “traitor”, she could be jailed for up to 20 years.Paolo Borrometi from Italy – Because of his intrepid reporting about the Mafia he is regularly threatened with death and lives under constant police protection.Lola Aronovich from Brazil – The blogger has become known throughout the country for her feminist texts and her commitment to women’s rights. Under the “Lola Law”, in homage to her fight against online violence, the federal police can take over any investigation into online crime of a misogynistic nature. Nonetheless, she is attacked repeatedly and massively and has received hundreds of death threats online. For the Prize for Impact, the nominees are:Bihus.info from Ukraine – The reporter collective founded by Denys Bihus has repeatedly published cases of corruption and abuse of power by high-ranking politicians of whom several were prosecuted and had to resign.Pham Doan Trang from Vietnam – The founder of the online magazine Luat Khoa lives in one of the most repressive states in the world. With her articles, she helps her fellow citizens to defend their civil rights. She is also a strong advocate for LGBT rights. Because of her work, she was beaten and arbitrarily imprisoned several times.Sudanese Journalists Network from Sudan – The network publishes reports about violations of press freedom on Twitter, and speaks up for imprisoned journalists.Lu Guang from China – The well-known photojournalist documents social and environmental problems issues resulting from rapid industrial development. He is based in New York since 2005. However, during a visit to China he was arrested on 3 November 2018. Lu’s family was informed of his arrest by state security weeks later, and no one has heard from him ever since.For the Prize for Independence, the nominees are:Caroline Muscat from Malta – After the murder of her colleague Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017, she founded the independent investigative website The Shift News, which also researches corruption. Despite massive pressure, she continues unswervingly.Dawn from Pakistan – The country’s oldest daily newspaper is the only one that continues to resist military rule. Its distribution was banned during the 2018 elections. This year the government instructed advertisers not to publish ads with Dawn.Amadou Vamoulké from Cameroon – The journalist headed state radio for nine years and repeatedly spoke out against the government’s monopoly on television coverage and the criminalization of media workers. In 2016, he was arrested for allegedly wasting millions in public funding. Confidencial from Nicaragua – The independent weekly has made a name for itself with its investigative research and in-depth analysis of the political system – but also many enemies. After several death threats, editor Carlos Fernando Chamorro fled to Costa Rica to work from there.PRIZES AWARDED FOR THE 27TH TIMEThe Press Freedom Awards were presented for the first time in 1992 and then annually in France. In 2018, the ceremony was held in London for the first time. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the German section is organizing this year’s event.”We are delighted that Berlin is hosting the Press Freedom Awards. It is a great pleasure for us to honour intrepid journalists from all over the world and to welcome some of them here with us,” says RSF Germany’s Board Spokesman Michael Rediske. “The awards are a signal to repressive regimes that the work of courageous women and men is perceived worldwide and that we don’t leave those being threatened, harassed and imprisoned alone.”The winners will be announced on 12 September at the Kammerspiele of the Deutsches Theater in Berlin. The winners will be chosen by a jury consisting of the international Emeritus Board and the presidents of all sections of Reporters Without Borders.

Flintridge Prep Community Backpack Drive Supports Pasadena Thanksgiving Tradition

first_img More Cool Stuff Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Front Row: Robin, Martha, Socorro, Diane. Back Row: Tina, Kaytee, Jon, Meghan, Courtney, Ann, SteveIn this Thanksgiving season, Flintridge Prep students merge a community outreach backpack drive with a Pasadena tradition known as “Share a Meal”, organized by the Pasadena Sandwich Company. For four years this tradition of inviting homeless families in Pasadena to share Thanksgiving has been upheld, and the City of Pasadena along with other community-oriented organizations have taken part in the annual event.Meghan Fink, a co-owner of the Pasadena Sandwich Company, shares that their small family business began when her and her siblings’ “grandparents founded the restaurant in the 1950s”. The restaurant has maintained its community-friendly feel ever since its founding. She continues, “When my grandparents retired, our dad opened the Pasadena Sandwich Company, and since then we continue the proud family tradition of serving fresh food as fast as we can” As a result, PSC has become a well-recognized landmark in Pasadena. More than a family business, the Pasadena Sandwich Company is the location of a Thanksgiving tradition known as “Share a Meal”, supporting Pasadena Families in Transition. Meghan Fink says that back in 1995 was when her dad, Steven Fink, started this “Thanksgiving concept”. She explains, “He believed that no one should be alone on Thanksgiving, so he opened the doors of the Pasadena Sandwich Company, and people came and brought something to contribute to the Thanksgiving meal”. The “Share a Meal” program started when Fink’s father passed away, in 2010. “Firefighter Steven Lawhorn came to us to remind us of what our dad would be doing at Thanksgiving”, recalls Fink. There after, the Fink siblings collaborated with the Pasadena Fire Department and the Pasadena Unified School District to bring back Thanksgiving “Share a Meal” in their dad’s honor, inviting homeless families in Pasadena that would appreciate a place to go, with pride, on Thanksgiving.For the past few months, Prep students have launched a backpack drive across the greater Pasadena community, with the goal of donating 300 backpacks, filled with school supplies, to Pasadena children in need. Backpacks and school supplies are provided by Sydney Paige® Inc., a Buy 1-Give 1 company supporting education for children in need within the immediate community. The culmination of these Prep students’ efforts in their community backpack drive outreach will happen on Thanksgiving Day at the “Share a Meal” event, held at the Pasadena Sandwich Company. These under-privileged families in the Pasadena area, many of who are supported by the “Pasadena Families in Transition”, will come together to share a Thanksgiving meal, and for the second year, all of the children receive a brand new Sydney Paige® backpack filled with school supplies. To participate in the Community Backpack Drive, go to www.sydneypaigeinc.com/flintprep or visit the Flintridge Bookstore & Coffee House on Foothill Avenue.

Join the ‘Tribe’

first_imgWhat do you know about lacrosse? If the answer is “not much” then now is the time to learn about this energetic team sport in time for the spring season.The nonprofit, Tribe Lacrosse, has offered a youth lacrosse program in the Pasadena area for the past seven years. They and looking for boys and girls, 1st through 12th grade as well as adults to coach the teams.“Lacrosse is a team sport that is very popular on the east coast and is rapidly spreading out west, said Executive Director, James McGoldrick. He comes from a football background and has been involved in lacrosse as both a coach and father.He explains that Tribe offers youth a team-building and competitive yet fun lacrosse experience. The teams are comprised of youth from many different schools and areas in the region – giving players a chance to meet new friends and bond.“We’re based in Pasadena but we are the only youth lacrosse organization in San Gabriel Valley for the most part. There really aren’t any other organizations within 15-20 miles of us… we draw kids fromas far away as West Covina, Glendora, Burbank, Studio City and Simi Valley,” he said.The best part is that players don’t need to have experience to participate in Tribe.“We offer development programs in the fall on Sundays. [This] 12-13 week program focuses on playing drills rather than winning the game,” he added. These clinics are a great way to get involved in the sport and take a test-run before committing to a more rigorous program.But a team would not be a true team without a coach. As McGoldrick explained, they are looking for adults to coach and work as assistant coaches.“The head coach obviously [needs] lacrosse experience, that’s essential. But for any coach or assistant I think communication and patience is key,” he said.In addition to clear communication skills, McGoldrick explains that coaches should pay equal attention to all players and focus on improvement rather than scores.If you think you’re a candidate for coach or want to learn more about joining a team, visit http://tribelacrosse.org/ and/or contact James McGoldrick directly at [email protected] Make a comment HerbeautyWhat Is It That Actually Makes French Women So Admirable?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeauty Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
