LOL Curate Diocese of Nebraska Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Members and visitors of Omaha’s Tri-Faith Initiative this year constructed a peace circle in remembrance of the 9/11 attacks. Photo: Countryside Community Church[Episcopal News Service] In the middle of a polarizing election season that has drummed up a deep mistrust of immigrants and Muslims in particular, a patch of 35 acres in the heartland has become a living symbol of what it means to “love thy neighbor.” In Omaha, Nebraska, Jews, Christians and Muslims are finding common ground and creating a shared community on the campus of the Tri-Faith Initiative.The initiative has its roots in a surprisingly “mundane conversation” that took place more than 10 years ago about mutual needs for parking and land. Leaders of Temple Israel and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture (now the American Muslim Institute) quickly deepened the dialogue, and it then shifted towards the importance of interfaith work between the two communities. Soon after, the Christian faith joined the conversation via the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska.The Tri-Faith Initiative, which was officially formed in 2006 representing the three Abrahamic faiths, continues to evolve as the physical manifestation of an idea, a multifaith campus with a synagogue, mosque and church. The original site, purchased by the initiative in 2011, had been the only country club in Omaha that allowed Jewish members. Temple Israel was the first to open its doors on the Tri-Faith campus in 2013. The American Muslim Institute broke ground last year with plans for its mosque and educational center to be finished by Ramadan 2017. Countryside Community Church is raising money for its new church, with the hope of opening it by 2018. The Tri-Faith Community Center will be the final building, bringing the campus to completion by 2019.When complete, the Tri-Faith Initiative’s campus will include a Jewish synagogue, a Christian church, a Muslim mosque all with pathways to a common tri-faith center at its nexus. Photo: A rendering provided by the Tri-Faith InitiativeThe initiative is creating a dialogue between the religions in myriad ways from outreach outside of the city to dialogues between mixed faiths at local Kiwanis clubs. On the campus, free public educational sessions and activities, such as Jewish, Christian and Muslim children making gingerbread houses together, have helped bring the members of the three faiths closer to one another. Last spring, The Daily Show on Comedy Central caught wind of the initiative and working what sounds like the start of a joke – a Christian, Muslim and a Jew walk into a bar – into a segment. The producers filmed the Tri-Faith’s leaders at a local pub, Sean O’Casey’s, to discuss the trifaith campus with good humor. The Tri-Faith Initiative took this idea and ran with it – hosting many informal get-togethers at the pub to help the public discuss, debate and imbibe with trifaith leaders and members. Every activity is an opportunity for three faiths to understand better and support each other’s communities.“The truth about Nebraska is that folks around here are pretty tolerant of even profound differences between themselves and their neighbors. People here understand that at the end of the day, we are all in this together,” said Bishop J. Scott Barker of the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska.There have been changes inside the initiative itself, namely the handing-off of the Christian arm in 2015 by the Diocese of Nebraska to the congregation and religious leaders of Countryside Community Church, which is part of the United Church of Christ.  “It was not an easy decision,” said Barker, “but it was the right one for the diocese. As the project grew in scope and scale, it became clear that the fundraising footprint required of the Christian partner would be far beyond what our small diocese could handle,” he said.“It’s sad not to be the Christian-faith partner because I know this is going to be an extraordinary thing, but it also felt like a real act of faith to hand over the leadership role to a community that is better suited at this moment to do this thing,” added Barker. “I truly believe the Holy Spirit is behind this hand-off to Countryside Church.”The Rev. Eric Elnes, head pastor at Countryside Community Church, said taking part in the Tri-Faith Initiative was a no-brainer for him when he first discussed it with Barker. “I had heard rumors of financial trouble in raising the millions needed to rebuild a church on the campus, so I reached out and said, ‘How can we help?’ and that started a season of formal dialogue between the Diocese of Nebraska and our church, and then resulted in them suggesting that we take over the Christian partnership from them,” Elnes said. “I do hope in the future we will do something together. I am a big fan of the Episcopalians personally, and I would love to have an Episcopal service in our church when it is built.”Despite Elnes’s enthusiasm for taking over the Christian arm, he needed the majority of his congregation to agree to move forward. And so began what Elnes called a “spiritually rich process” within his congregation to make a decision about relocating his congregation into a new building on the Tri-Faith campus.First, the congregation voted whether or not there was an interest in joining the initiative and moving to the campus. Next, came a 40-day investigation to dig further into the possibility and explore the process itself. And they examined the cost of rebuilding the church on the Tri-Faith campus. “Over 70 percent [of the congregation] agreed and said, ‘Yes, this is God’s vision for us,’ so we accepted the diocese’s offer on April 12 of last year. As a result, 100 families left the congregation, but we don’t hold grudges; maybe some of them will return,” said Elnes.The cost for building the church is $25 million. “We decided to build the greenest church in America,” he added. “We want to make a positive environmental statement with our church.” A fundraising campaign is underway and at the time this article was written, the church was only $1.25 million away from meeting its goal.“The work being done here is magnificent,” said Rabbi Darryl Crystal, one of the interim rabbis for Temple Israel. “I’ve been in 13 cities in the last 14 years, and I have seen many things in this country and worked actively on immigration reform. This initiative here is just tremendous.” Crystal came on board when Rabbi Aryeh Azriel, one of the founders of the initiative, recently retired. “Azriel is still active within the community,” said Crystal. “He is really a prophetic voice here. He is originally from Israel and his belief in justice is just incredible.”Crystal said he has arrived at a pivotal time for the Tri-Faith Initiative. He recalled a few weeks ago in September when 500 people created a peace circle on the grounds of the campus to remember the horror of 9/11 and honor the cause of peace and goodwill among faiths. “I am honored to be here. It is an exciting time as the initiative is focusing on the completion of its campus and how the vision of this campus will come to life.”Despite not having a fully functional campus, upcoming events include an annual Tri-Faith picnic and a winter gathering where stories and holiday sweets can be shared. And a retreat is planned for the spring of 2017. “Things are progressing very quickly now, and the initiative is gathering real momentum,” said Crystal.The Muslims are planning future programs and searching for an imam to lead their congregation when the mosque opens. Dr. Syed Mohiuddin, president and co-founder of the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture, now the American Muslim Institute, is a spiritual leader within Omaha’s Muslim community. “I have been in Omaha for almost 40 years,” said Mohiuddin, who is also a cardiologist.  “It is a very, very welcoming community. I believe that the reason the Tri-Faith Initiative was able to become so active is because of the Midwestern culture being supportive of different cultures and religions,” he said.Mohiuddin said the American Muslim Institute plans to hold educational panels, symposiums and offer more civil services to Muslim families on the campus. “The church and synagogue provide more civil services than we do; I would like to offer more of these types of services in our community.”For now, the Temple Israel is the only operating place of worship on the campus, but not for long. “We hope this larger mosque will have the ability to support a growing Muslim population in Omaha,” Mohiuddin said. “I think if people will learn to accept that we are all human beings, even if we may practice different religions or pray to God in a different way, then the world would be a much better place. This is our message here.”– Maya Dollarhide is a freelance journalist based in the Hudson Valley. She grew up in the Episcopal Church.

Fishers Island House / Thomas Phifer and Partners

Meandering gardens and woods, sparked with daffodils, peonies and daylilies, flank the straight drive in. Up ahead near the path’s end is an aperture framed by an arbor of apple trees, capturing an elemental view of sky and water: the horizon of the Long Island Sound. As you reach closer range, you suddenly realize you have been looking not merely through foliage, but also right through the house. Just behind the copse stands a delicately transparent pavilion. Its light-filtering trellis—a horizontal tracery of slender aluminum rods extending the roof plane—aligns with the canopy of trees before it. Woven into the landscape, this is an architecture of subtlety, a precisely grounded yet quasi-weightless structure, an ethereal rectangle, planted between two existing woods. Like feathery fronds, the trellis reaches toward the bordering leafy branches, while the pavilion’s interior floor plane—fully visible through the glassy, Miesian shell—continues outward, its surface of ebonized bamboo transformed into an exterior plinth of Indian black granite, a walkway, finely striated with shadows from the diaphanous, metal canopy above. Save this picture!©  Scott FrancesMeanwhile, the entry axis penetrates the pavilion’s simple 4,600-square-foot volume, notching into its far side and emerging as a long, miraculously shallow reflecting pool, incising the lawn with a silvery film, its distant edge dissolving optically into the Sound. A perimeter path lines the structure’s transparent shell. Freestanding in parallel alignment, the interior walls never meet the enclosure. Instead, they form a virtual box within a box, an implied inner volume. These parallel planes channel long vistas out toward water and garden, only allowing the seascape’s wide, rugged panorama to emerge in full view at the house’s far side. Save this picture!©  Scott FrancesMore than a one-bedroom retreat for a former museum director and his wife, this is also a place of extraordinary 20th century paintings, sculptures, and glassware—much of it conveying a sense of buoyancy or levitation that echoes the pavilion’s lightness. The artwork always figures into view out, even if only peripherally. Conversely, from the gardens, this colorful indoor collection projects a presence outdoors. In the animated interplay between landscape and art, in the shifting ambiguities between inside and out, the design achieves exceptional balance. An arcing swath of vibrant yellow sedum in the garden resonates with the golden footbridge in a Chinese screen inside; a mossy rock garden projects into the pavilion’s simple volume, while the bedroom nestles into a private apse of garden vegetation. You can look straight through the house without realizing it, but you could also mistake reflections of trees for glimpses through the pavilion. Morphing with the skies, flourishing seasonally, the dialogue evolves, nourishing the owner’s desire to live in the garden—with art.Project gallerySee allShow lessNew Nørvasund School Competition entry / Various Architects + Kant Arkitekter + Grin…ArticlesCrystal Towers / Vivid ArchitectsArticles Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeThomas Phifer and PartnersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHouses3D ModellingFishers IslandUnited StatesPublished on September 19, 2010Cite: “Fishers Island House / Thomas Phifer and Partners” 19 Sep 2010.

Campaign to allow charities to earn income by selling National Lottery tickets

This would give them a chance to earn a share of the £333 million that newsagents, supermarkets and other retailers generate each year through selling tickets.Charities could then earn 10p sales commission for every Lottery ticket sold via their website.How would so many charities, many of them small, implement such a service? The National Lottery Partnership say that they can provide a plugin that will achieve this.The sums involved are certainly considerable. Since 1994 the National Lottery has paid out £5 billion in sales commissions, none of which have been earned by charities.To achieve this, however, the National Lottery Partnership needs to convince Camelot that there is demand. They are running an online petition on Change.org to try to achieve this, and they are seeking further support.

Cutting red tape is key to getting refugees to work

Posted on by

first_imgCutting red tape is key to getting refugees to workOn 13 Jan 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The Government must invest in reorganisation, slash red tape and overhaultraining in the public sector if a new strategy on refugee employment is tosucceed, according to the Employability Forum (EF). The Department of Work and Pensions is preparing to release its first majorrefugee employment strategy, Working to Rebuild Lives, this April. This willrequire the involvement of the job centre network, employers, further educationcolleges and voluntary organisations. But the EF, which promotes the skills and experience of refugees in the UK,fears it will not have the necessary impact if crackdowns on illegal workingcontinue to outweigh the practical steps to get refugees into employment. Jonathan Duke-Evans, head of the social policy unit at the Home OfficeImmigration and Nationality Directorate, agreed the department concentrated toomuch on the change from immigrant to refugee status and needed to start”getting on with it”. Patrick Wintour, director of the EF, said staff working for public bodieswould require continual training to help refugees. “If the Department of Work and Pensions plans to implement thisstrategy, then job centres need to be involved,” he said. “But staffturnover is very high, so how can you train staff to be aware of issues facingrefugees?” Wintour said refugees required a “bewildering range of documentaryevidence” to make it clear that permission to work has been granted. Hesaid this should be replaced by a simple, robust document to prove refugees arelegal workers. Personnel Today has been campaigning for a coherent refugee strategy for thepast two years.

Donnelly Will Vote No On Kavanaugh Nomination

Posted on by

first_img“I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts,” Donnelly said in a written statement. “Only 113 people have ever served on the Supreme Court, and I believe that we must do our level best to protect its sanctity.”Friday’s 11-to-10 vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate followed the testimony of the judge and the woman who leveled the assault accusations against him, Christine Blasey Ford.“As I have made clear before, sexual assault has no place in our society,” Donnelly said. “When it does occur, we should listen to the survivors and work to ensure it never happens again. That should not be a partisan issue.”Donnelly, a Democrat, called the accusations against Kavanaugh disturbing and credible, adding that he believes they should be investigated by the FBI. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has refused to allow an investigation, Donnelly said.“Even the American Bar Association, which has previously rated Judge Kavanaugh as ‘well qualified’ has called for an FBI investigation, where we could learn more information and other potential witnesses could be interviewed,” Donnelly said.“I do not view Supreme Court vacancies through a partisan lens, which is why I have used the same thorough process to evaluate nominees regardless of who the president is at the time. That was the case regarding the nomination of Judge (Merrick) Garland and also when I voted for Justice (Neil) Gorsuch, who was President Trump’s first nominee. It has remained my approach with Judge Kavanaugh.”Donnelly was referring to the nomination of Merrick Garland, an appellate judge who was nominated to the high court by then-President Barack Obama. The Republican-controlled Senate refused to consider Garland’s nomination. Donnelly voted yes on the Neil Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court.Donnelly’s Republican challenger, Mike Braun, was quick to blast the incumbent for his decision to vote against the Kavanaugh nomination and affirmed his strong support for the embattled Supreme Court nominee.“This entire process has been an embarrassment to our democracy as Hoosiers watched firsthand how Sen. Donnelly’s liberal colleagues used uncorroborated allegations to create a media circus designed to smear and destroy Judge Kavanaugh’s reputation,” Braun said in a news release.“Donnelly’s decision to oppose President Trump’s highly qualified nominee is a grave mistake, but proves he is more concerned with standing with his liberal Democrat leaders than standing for Hoosiers,” Braun added.Indiana’s other senator, Republican Todd Young, issued a statement Thursday saying he watched the hearing and remained convinced that Kavanaugh is a man of integrity and that he planned to vote yes on the nomination.FOOTNOTE: Janet Williams is executive editor of TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Donnelly Will Vote No On Kavanaugh NominationSeptember 28, 2018  |   Filed under: Elections,Top stories  |   Posted by: Janet WilliamsBy Janet WilliamsTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—U.S. Sen.
