World Rugby announces solution to Japan 2019 World Cup stadium crisis

first_img Yokohama Stadium “We are also confident that the selection of the Tokyo Stadium for the opening match and the final in the International Stadium Yokohama will provide a spectacular backdrop for the tournament across Japan, throughout Asia and around the world,” the Japan Rugby 2019 Organising Committee CEO, Akira Shimazu, said.>>> World Cup 2015: South Africa 32-34 Japan TAGS: Japan While their rugby team is still basking in the glory of upsetting South Africa last weekend, the organisers of the Japan 2019 Rugby World Cup have been going through something of a stadium crisis.World Rugby said this week that the 70,000-seat Yokohama Stadium, in Tokyo, will host the final of the competition after it was announced that a showpiece 80,000-seat national stadium would not be ready in time for the tournament.The stadium is supposed to be the centrepiece of Tokyo’s 2020 Olympic Games plans, but Prime Minister Shinzo Abe recently scrapped the plans due to escalating costs.The opening ceremony and first match will now be hosted at the 48,000-seat Tokyo Stadium, home of Tokyo FC, as World Rugby approved a roadmap of Japan’s revised plans. World Rugby chairman, Bernard Lapasset, said in a statement: “These are exciting, unprecedented times for Japan Rugby and this revised roadmap reinforces and reflects the shared vision and mission to deliver a Rugby World Cup that will be great for Japan, great for Asia and great for Rugby.“We would like to thank our partners in Japan for their committed response to the stadium issue and all of the work they have undertaken, and in particular the Prime Minister of Japan and his government, Japan Sports Council and the Governor of Tokyo and Mayor of Yokohama for their full support.” After it was revealed that the 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium would not be ready in time for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Japan announces Yokohama Stadium will host the final LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The Anglican Covenant: the Latino perspective

first_imgThe Anglican Covenant: the Latino perspective Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Tags Submit a Press Release [Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] One of the “thorny issues” on General Convention’s agenda is the Anglican Covenant, a document that supporters say offers a way to bind Anglicans globally across cultural and theological differences.For some, the sticking point is not so much in the spirit of the document, but in the proposed text, in particular its future interpretation.Bishop David Alvarez of Puerto Rico said: “I believe that in essence we all agree with the Anglican Covenant, but some of us have reservations regarding section IV. As it is, it leaves an open door for potential conflicts between the Anglican Church and some provinces.”By way of example, Alvarez made a reference to views of the church regarding human sexuality and said that some fear that the Anglican Covenant may be used as an instrument of control.“The problem is more in the form that in the concept,” said Alvarez. “I believe that in general the Anglican Covenant is positive but before moving forward we must sort out the ambiguities.”Bishop Orlando Guerrero of Venezuela holds a similar position. “The idea [of the covenant] has merits overall, but there is no need to rush.” He adds that it is necessary to resolve beforehand all potential contentious issues to do things right from the onset, and “if someone has reservations, the responsible thing is to openly say so. To do otherwise would be a disservice to the communion.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, in an interview in Spanish with the Webradio service of the Latino/Hispanic Ministry, said the covenant “is something very British, and many sectors within the communion see it as an attempt to re-create the empire. For some parts of the communion — for example, in New Zealand with its mostly indigenous church — many people don’t like the form of the Section IV of the Anglican Covenant.”The presiding bishop said she believes that nowadays many within the Episcopal Church and other churches within the communion “have more opportunities to establish relations and work in unity, which results in stronger bonds than those that may come out of the Anglican Covenant.”The Anglican Covenant first was proposed in the 2004 Windsor Report as a way that the communion and its 38 autonomous provinces might maintain unity despite differences, especially relating to biblical interpretation and human sexuality issues. The report came in the wake of the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, an openly gay priest, as bishop of New Hampshire, a development that caused some provinces to declare broken or impaired communion with the Episcopal Church. The covenant also was a response to some church leaders crossing borders into other provinces to minister to disaffected Anglicans.Following five years of discussion and several draft versions, the final text of the covenant was sent in December 2009 to the communion’s provinces for formal consideration.— Cesar Cardoza is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

Kahwa Njojo ,told ACNS: “The wars that we have had in the past grew worse because of the desire for revenge. That desire of vengeance negatively affects all sectors of the human life, society and even the church.“The presence of the Centre of Non Violence for Reconciliation and Peace proves to be indispensable in helping people promote peace instead of vengeance that brings other forms of violence,” he said. “Therefore, it is vital that Congolese people be trained in nonviolence to reduce violence in the world.”The center was established in 2012 to explore different methods and strategies that Jesus used to respond “effectively to different types of violence thereby restoring the culture of nonviolence and peace in our societies.”The center also realizes that in times of war and conflict, it is the women and children who suffer the most. Therefore, it also promotes women through education because “most of them are victims of violence due to their uneducated status.”“Women need to be trained so as to be well represented at all levels of society,” said Njojo. “We have registered many cases of violence and most of them are women and children who are unable to take care of themselves because of cultural stereotypes.”Since its establishment the center has been able to organize seminars and workshops to help people deal with violence and has also developed university level courses on peace and nonviolence to help students understand violence and how to address it using nonviolence in their respective regions.Despite the various positive works that the center is involved in, it still has major financial constraints to effectively implement its programs. “The problem with trying to build capacity of victims of violence is that you not only have to train them, but in the case of women, equip them with machines to enable them do profit-making activities such as tailoring and embroidery.“It for this reason that we are looking for partners to help us carry out these activities,” he said. “A project proposal is ready for anyone who are willing to make contributions.” Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Albany, NY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Press Release Service Africa, Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC Rector Collierville, TNlast_img read more

Survivors have not, in the past, been able to tell their stories with confidence that a pastoral response will ensue as they tell of being shattered by clergy sex abuse. As the 12 stories read illustrated, survivors often feel absolutely alone with their shattering. As the stories illustrate, the shattering of body, mind and faith often leads to poor academic and occupational functioning; it can lead to mental health problems and even to suicide. Bravo to the church for committing to good pastoral care to survivors.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] In a hushed worship space in the Austin Convention Center late in the afternoon of July 4, bishops of the Episcopal Church stood and collectively offered laments and confession for the church’s role in sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse in a service called a “Liturgy of Listening.”The service featured 12 stories – six from women and six from men – from victims of sexual misconduct perpetrated by someone in the church. These were among 40 stories submitted by people in May in response to a bishops’ request for reflections from those hurt by the church.House of Bishops Vice President and El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves, center, reads one of the 12 stories that formed the backbone of the “Liturgy of Listening” July 4. Standing at the altar with her are Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Diocese of Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceEach story was read by a bishop of the same gender as the victim, in first-person accounts of what had happened to that person and how the church’s response had failed her or him. The stories included a church employee made uncomfortable by lewd comments from the male rector; an ordinand placed in a sexually awkward position by her bishop; a young man seduced by his priest’s wife; a woman raped by a priest from whom she was receiving spiritual direction; and a choir boy subjected to emotional, physical and sexual abuse. One included a plea that bishops care for all vulnerable people in their dioceses and “take seriously the plague of sexual misconduct that affects our branch of the Jesus Movement.”The service was planned by Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, who chairs the House of Bishops’ Pastoral Response to #MeToo Planning Team. In remarks in Episcopal News Service in late June, she said the service was designed to help set a framework for General Convention’s consideration of resolutions dealing with sexual misconduct, exploitation and gender disparity. These sins occur “because we aren’t seeing the image of Christ in one another,” she told ENS.This format was chosen, Duncan-Probe said, because “Episcopalians believe in the transformational power of liturgy.”Central New York Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe speaks to attendees before the July 4 “Liturgy of Listening.” She chaired the House of Bishops’ Pastoral Response to #MeToo Planning Team. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAfter the service opened with two reflective songs, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said that “the church has failed her people.” He said that as successors to the apostles, bishops “hold a particular responsibility to acknowledge the past and help the church move forward.” He said the service would be “a sacred container” for stories of abuse that never should have happened. He added, “There is pain in these stories, there is courage in the people who have offered them.” He then called on bishops and the entire church to honor the courage and vulnerability of victims by being committed to the work of repentance and reconciliation.

The Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous House of Bishops Leadership Circle has reviewed the first draft of these documents, which will soon be translated into some Indigenous languages. When Sacred Circle meets this month, it will discuss them, after which they will be sent back to local communities for more discussion; they’ll then be the subject of another online meeting in the fall, and then be “fulfilled and sealed” by a Eucharist in June 2022, he says.Read the entire article here.

Post-hurricane repairs underway at Lake Apopka North Shore

first_img Repairs are underway in areas where water has recededFrom the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictRepairs are underway in areas of the St. Johns River Water Management District’s Lake Apopka North Shore, which experienced damage due to Hurricane Irma.Property inspections have found flooding, trees down and other conditions that make the 20,000-acre property unsafe for recreation.The first stage of the repair process entails patching a section of lake-side levee that separates Lake Apopka from the Lake Apopka North Shore. Once this repair is made, lower water levels will allow the district to complete an inspection of damage to internal levees, roads, trails and other infrastructure. Currently, many parts remain underwater and cannot be inspected.Understanding that the area is a popular outdoor recreation destination, the Red Trail, off County Road 448A, and the McDonald Canal Boat Ramp, are open. All other trails, including the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive and Lake Apopka Loop Trail, remain closed to recreation to ensure the public’s safety.Following Hurricane Irma’s impact, the district has reopened 40 of its conservation lands for recreation.For continuing updates on district operations and recreational announcements, visit the district’s website, www.sjrwmd.com.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida.

The Apopka Voice Townhall set for Seats #1 and #2

first_img Any reason why you can’t do one of these for the Mayoral candidates? I believe that it is a great idea for the townhalls and the “debate” for them was packed and did not allow questions from the public. The week after the first? Apopka City Hall February 27, 2018 at 5:49 am Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 4 COMMENTS February 26, 2018 at 6:20 pm Looking forward to this debate Nolan will not get the party line rubber stamp. That she received on the radio last night. If her leadership on the task force was so instrumental why did it fail? And the 6th generation privilege of her being in Apopka. Has not translate into helping in one is South Apopka especially from 10th Street to Hawthorn.Do your research and see how her values line up with #45.Just my opinion as a tax payer. Is the townhall meeting the same event both days (Wed and Thurs)? Or are they separate events/guests? Reply The Apopka Voice Townhall Dates: Wednesday, February 28th for Seat #1, and Thursday, March 1st for Seat #2.Location: Highland Manor 604 East Main Street in ApopkaTime: From 6-8 PM both nights. Maria Martinez UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Joseph Please enter your name here William Gusler  But unlike most debates or townhalls, this event will attempt to re-create the experience of being on the Apopka City Council. The agenda items (topics) and specifics (questions) will be sent to the eight candidates a week in advance so that they can prepare to answer questions delivered to them. This style of Townhall is intended to better simulate the experience of being an Apopka City Commissioner. There will also be longer answers, allowing candidates to reply to questions in a more conversational style, similar to how the City Council operates during a discussion. Three specific topics will be discussed with only a few questions per topic. The discussion will stay on that topic until a comprehensive understanding of the four candidate’s viewpoints/opinions/thoughts is known. The purpose of this format is not to measure how quickly a candidate thinks on their feet, but rather to measure their approach to solving critical issues for Apopka, and to fully understand their opinions and ideologies on the subject.In the last 30 minutes, a more traditional townhall style debate will close the event with the candidates answering questions posed by the audience. Seating is limited to first-come-first-served.

Please enter your email address here Reply There are only 15 days until Apopka’s Election Day, which means it’s time to meet your candidates for City Commission. And what better way to get to know them than at a townhall? On Wednesday, February 28th, and Thursday, March 1st The Apopka Voice will host two City Commission Townhall at the Highland Manor from 6-8 PM. It’s the first Townhall in the news site’s history, and the first time all four candidates from Seat #1 and Seat #2 will meet together at the same event.
