Photo: Anglican Church of Southern Africa[Anglican Communion News Service] The Church in South Africa is “reclaiming its prophetic vocation,” according to its Anglican primate, Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba, in a statement made in his latest letter To the Laos (the people).“Since Holy Saturday, when religious leaders carried out a walk of witness to demand transparent governance and accountability, I have been reflecting on what it is to be witnesses to God’s love in the world,” he wrote.“I am grateful that the church at large is reclaiming her prophetic vocation, committed like Christ to demand justice,” said Makgoba. “It will not be easy but in Christ we trust and have our confidence and assurance.”Drawing from a Bible story of restoration and liberation, the archbishop warned: “It is easy to forget the exile experience. It is easy to be seduced by power and wealth as well as status and forget God and the poorest of the poor. It is easy to turn a blind eye even if we have eyes to see.”The archbishop reminded South Africans about the need to celebrate the country’s 20 years of democracy. “There is much to celebrate. There is indeed a good story to tell,” he said. “Today we can celebrate above all our constitution, which guarantees us nearly everything else we laud as achievements.”“The right of black people to vote, equal rights for all individuals black or white, the provision of housing, sanitation, water and electricity and the independent institutions set up to guard democracy and promote good governance.”Despite the achievements that South Africa has made over the years, the Archbishop expressed his shock at the levels of inequality in society. He pointed out the huge disparities that exist between the wealthy parts of their cities and the rest of the country.“We live with massive disparities of income, largely based on race but increasingly based on whether you have made it into the middle class,” he said. “Black economic empowerment in many instances is contributing to inequality rather than closing the gap between rich and poor.”Makgoba said that someone’s opportunities in life still often depend on who their parents are and whether they are privileged or not. “If you are poor, the chances are that you will struggle to escape the kind of lives your parents lived,” he said.“But the rich, whether black or white, will hand on to their children a legacy of privilege. Families who have resources will continue to have resources, those who have benefited from patronage will pass down the benefits to their children, and the unequal distribution of power will still plague our economic and national life.”On April 19, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa held a “procession of witness” to mark the 20th anniversary of the birth of South Africa’s democracy and also express concerns over issues affecting the country.

Austin Ford, who lived and ministered in one of the city’s most deprived communities, died Saturday at his Grant Park, Georgia, home.Ford, who was the founding rector of St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Decatur, left the security of the fast-growing suburban Episcopal parish in 1967 to start Emmaus House, in Atlanta’s Peoplestown community.Moving into a dilapidated clapboard house, Ford took his time getting to know the community.  He carefully listened to area residents and responded to their goals – growing the ministry to include an after-school program, once-a-month transportation to the state prison for families of inmates, chapel services, hot meals, and a poverty rights office.Over three decades at Emmaus House Ford was a consistent and strident voice for welfare rights, neighborhood empowerment and racial justice.The Rt. Rev. Robert C. Wright, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, said Ford was a priest who modeled Jesus’ preference for the poor and disenfranchised.“Austin Ford was someone who believed and lived his faith shoulder to shoulder with people from all situations and circumstances,” Wright said. “He was a man and a priest who understood that Jesus wants His followers with the poor. His shoes will be hard to fill. His example changed minds, hearts and lives.”Ford will be cremated. A time for a memorial service is yet to be determined. A.S. Turner & Sons Funeral Home and Crematory in Decatur is in charge of arrangements.

The orientation of the project intends to minimize the building’s impact on the area while maximizing site lines and access to natural daylight. The roof seemingly floats above the stone entry wall suggesting a more gestural and dynamic roof on the dwelling’s other face.Save this picture!© Maciek LinowskiTwo main programmatic bars make up Stouffville Residence. The more public spaces make up the heart of the house, and the more private areas branch off to the sides.

According to Charities Aid Foundation, quoting HMRC figures, UK-based charities stand to lose out on roughly £90 million of Gift Aid income a year as a result.Currently every pound given to a charity using Gift Aid is worth £1.28 for them. After 5 April this will drop to £1.25.John Low, Chief Executive of CAF has urged people planning to give lump sums to charity to make their donation before 5 April so that charities can claim back the tax. The Institute of Fundraising has issued a similar call.“Every pound counts”, said Low, “particularly as we fear that this will be a hard year for charities anyway due to the economy slowing. If you are a UK taxpayer and are planning to make a one off donation it would be best for your charity if you give before 5 April.”Age Concern Director General Gordon Lishman said: “We stand to lose £40,000 next year alone. This is money we will have to find from somewhere else if are we are to continue all our work to fight for a better deal for the most vulnerable older people in the country. One off donations before the end of the financial year to help us make up the shortfall would be extremely welcome.”www.cafonline.org Howard Lake | 10 March 2008 | News One month to go to before value of Gift Aid dropslast_img read more

Farm Bureau Launches Farm State of Mind Resource Directory to Support…

first_img By American Farm Bureau Federation – May 3, 2021 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Farm Bureau Launches Farm State of Mind Resource Directory to Support Mental Health Month Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Launches Farm State of Mind Resource Directory to Support Mental… In recognition of May as Mental Health Month, the American Farm Bureau Federation launched a comprehensive, easy-to-use online directory of resources for farmers, ranchers and their families who are experiencing stress and mental health challenges.The directory, which is on the Farm State of Mind website at farmstateofmind.org, features listings for crisis hotlines and support lines, counseling services, training opportunities, podcasts, videos, published articles and other resources in every U.S. state and Puerto Rico. Listings for crisis support, counseling and behavioral health resources that are available nationwide are also included.“For far too long, farmers and ranchers have been trying to cope with increasing levels of stress on their own,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “Our Farm State of Mind campaign is encouraging conversations about stress and mental health in farming and ranching communities. It is so important to spread the word that no one has to go it alone.“This new online directory of stress and mental health resources in every state gives farmers, ranchers and rural communities a user-friendly, one-stop shop to find services in their area that can help them manage farm stress and find help for mental health concerns. Whether you’re looking for information about how to recognize and manage stress, trying to find counseling services in your area or are in need of crisis support, you can find help here.”National research polls conducted and published by AFBF in 2019 and 2021 showed that a number of factors including financial issues and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting farmers’ mental health, highlighting the need to identify local resources that can help farmers and ranchers cope with chronic stress and mental health concerns.The Farm State of Mind directory lists resources specifically geared toward farmers, ranchers and rural communities in states where these specific services are available, with additional listings for county and statewide mental health and other support services in every state. The listings can be filtered by state and type of resource, including hotlines, counseling services and published information.AFBF partnered with the University of Georgia School of Social Work to research available resources across the U.S. and Puerto Rico and compile comprehensive information included in the directory.Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to share the directory with their family, friends and community networks to ensure widespread awareness of the availability of these important resources.

It’s not too late to register to vote for the midterm elections

After the request is received, students should expect to receive a voter registration certificate in the mail, along with a ballot that must be filled out and returned.  Twitter Grace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Grace Amiss + posts Linkedin Flu activity remains high in Texas ReddIt TCU cancels offer to trade tickets for canned food Revamped enrollment process confuses some students Facebook Grace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ Language barriers remain in TCU’s alert system Facebook printWith control of the House and Senate in the balance, some analysts and pundits are expecting high voter turnout for the midterm elections.College students have the option of registering to vote locally or requesting an absentee ballot and casting their vote in their home states.Students who are planning to vote in the Nov. 6 election said this is their way to make a change in their community and on a federal level. The deadline to register to vote for the upcoming November election is Oct. 9.

Joint appeal to the UN against ill-treatment and torture of detained human rights defenders, activists and photojournalist in Bahrain

first_img Help by sharing this information News March 17, 2021 Find out more Organisation We therefore call on you to request the Bahraini authorities to:1. Guarantee the safety of Nabeel Rajab and the other witnesses to torture in Jaw prison, as well as the safety of the young victims of torture, and allow detained human rights defenders and activists to have phone calls and visits with their families and lawyers;2. Release imprisoned human rights defenders Nabeel Rajab, Zainab and Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, and Naji Fateel, as well as photojournalist Ahmed Humaidan, and protestors Rayhana Al-Mosawi and Nafeesa Al-Asfoor, and drop all charges against them, as well as Ma’suma Sayyid Sharaf, as we believe they have been targeted in violation of their rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of expression in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;3. Immediately put an end to the practice of torture and ill-treatment of prisoners in Bahrain and bring those responsible to justice; while fixing a new date for the visit of the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and a date for the visit of the ICRC;4. Guarantee that human rights defenders in Bahrain are able to carry out their legitimate human rights activities without fear of reprisals. Tenth anniversary of Bahraini blogger’s arrest Follow the news on Bahrain German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors News News May 27, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Joint appeal to the UN against ill-treatment and torture of detained human rights defenders, activists and photojournalist in Bahrain 22 May 2013 Dear Special Rapporteurs Mendez, Sekaggya and La Rue,We the undersigned NGOs worldwide are writing to express serious concern over the treatment of Bahrain human rights defenders whom we believe to be detained in violation of their right to freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. We have received alarming reports of torture and ill-treatment in prison, which contravene Bahrain’s obligations under international law, as well as its promises to stop the practise of torture in detention.Most recently, Nabeel Rajab, President of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR) and Secretary General of the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR), was threatened in Jaw prison after he told his wife Sumaya on 14 May 2013 that he had witnessed young political prisoners being tortured by prison guards and called for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to visit. After two days with no news, Rajab called his wife and colleague to say, “I witnessed by my own eyes a big crime and the government doesn’t want me to talk about it,” and then the phone was cut off.Rajab’s wife was able to visit him on 20 May where he told her that while walking in the prisoners’ exercising yard, he and two other prisoners “heard voices of punching and beating coming out from the prison administration building.” Nabeel said he “rushed to the exposed area of the building and saw 7 to 8 young (15 to 18 years old) prisoners who were handcuffed facing the wall, and several foreign non-Bahraini police men were beating them, hitting them with the wall and hitting their heads together. The kids were bleeding heavily.” Rajab believes these prisoners have been prevented from seeing their families, and he and the other two witnesses have been threatened to remain silent. Rajab, who is in jail for two years on charges of calling for and peacefully participating in gatherings arbitrarily designated as illegal, has previously been ill-treated in prison and denied medical attention.We are deeply concerned by repeated reports of torture in detention in Bahrain. Human rights defender Naji Fateel, a Board member of the Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights (BYSHR), was allegedly tortured in the notorious Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) after his arrest on 2 May. He was charged on 9 May with alleged “establishment of a group in order to disable the provisions of the Constitution” and ordered to be imprisoned for 60 days, then sentenced on 22 May to six months in prison on charges of participating in “illegal gatherings.” Among the allegations are that he has been subjected to electrical shocks to his genitals, foot, and back, and been subjected to simulated drowning, severe beatings, threats to publish photographs of his wife, hanging by his hands from the ceiling, threats to rape him, standing for long hours, and sleep deprivation.Also on 9 May, the Appeal Court upheld the three-month prison sentence of activist Zainab Al-Khawaja on charges of participating in an “illegal gathering” in November 2011. Al-Khawaja’s new sentence will be added to the one she is currently serving of over three months for “insulting an officer” in a military hospital in Issa Town Prison for women. She is denied family visits for refusing to wear the prison uniform, like her father, human rights defender Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, jailed for life for his role in protests in the peaceful demonstrations of early 2011.Zainab Al-Khawaja and activist Ma’suma Sayyid Sharaf were then sentenced on 22 May on charges of “illegal gathering”, “inciting hatred against the regime” and a further charge related to the alleged assault of police officers during their arrest in December 2011. A further three months was added to Al-Khawaja’s prison term, and Sharaf was sentenced to six months in prison. Yet there has been no investigation into ill-treatment the two women have suffered during their arrests and detention.We are also concerned about the well-being and safety of Rayhana Al-Mosawi and Nafeesa Al-Asfoor, detained since they were arrested on 20 April while protesting the ongoing detention of detained human rights defenders including Zainab Al-Khawaja and photojournalist Ahmed Humaidan during the Formula 1 race in Manama. The two women have been denied family visits, and reportedly tortured to extract confessions, one of them with electric shocks.Humaidan also was reportedly tortured in prison after his arrest in December 2012 on charges of “demonstrating illegally.”These latest reports come shortly after Bahraini authorities indefinitely postponed your visit in late April. In November 2011, the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) reported that five people detained in connection with protests earlier in 2011 had died as a result of torture in custody and recommended action be taken to prevent torture in detention. Bahraini authorities promised to hold accountable those responsible for torture following recommendations made under the UN’s Universal Periodic Review of Bahrain, yet very little has been done to properly investigate the serious allegations of torture of prisoners by government employees and nothing has been done to effectively prevent torture and other prohibited treatment from continuing. Read in Arabic (بالعربية)The following is a joint appeal to three UN Special Rapporteurs calling for an investigation to torture in Bahraini prisons.
