Just to clarify, “The Anglican Church reached Taiwan in the late 1890s” is referring to the NSKK (Nippon Sei Ko Kai) Japanese Anglican Church during the Japanese colonial era in Taiwan, 1895-1945. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI By Lynette Wilson Posted Mar 7, 2017 Rector Albany, NY Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Martinsville, VA Submit a Press Release [Episcopal News Service – Taipei, Taiwan] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry brought the message of the Jesus Movement to the Episcopal Diocese of Taiwan during its recent Diocesan Synod, Feb. 24-26, telling Taiwanese Episcopalians to “follow Jesus in the Episcopal way.”“If you follow in the way of Jesus and your life begins to reflect his life and if he is the perfect image of God, the more your life reflects his life, the more you actually reflect the image of God in you and you become who God created you to be. And when you do that you are free,” said Curry during a Feb. 25 address to synod attendees gathered at St. John’s Cathedral in Taipei.“To follow Jesus is not to become someone else; it’s to become who God intended you to be in the beginning,” he saidPrayer, fasting, self-denial, reading and studying scripture, special acts of devotion and piety that serve others in the world have, for thousands of years, drawn people to God and to each, Curry said, inviting those present to adopt those practices this Lent.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Taiwan Bishop David Jung-Hsin Lai concelebrate the Eucharist during a service at St. John’s Cathedral in Taipei. Photo: Catherine LeeOver a three-day visit, Curry preached and concelebrated at Eucharist during the synod’s opening and closing sessions at St. John’s Cathedral; gave a keynote address focused on “The Meaning and Significance of a Christian University in the 21st Century” to students at St. John University; addressed the diocese’s clergy, lay leaders and standing committee members attending the synod and held a Q&A session. (The video of the presiding bishop preaching at the synod’s opening leads the post, the closing sermon follows at the end. Both sermons were interpreted by Tim Pan into Mandarin.  A blog post by Catherine Lee, an Anglican missionary serving in Taiwan, including photo gallery is here.)When Taiwan Bishop David Jung-Hsin Lai heard the presiding bishop would be visiting Asia, he worked with Peter Ng, the church’s officer for Asia and the Pacific, now retired, to schedule a diocesan visit onto the end of the trip. It’s important for Episcopalians and Christians in Taiwan, to hear the Curry’s message about the Jesus Movement, said Lai, following the presiding bishop’s sermon at the close of the synod.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry signed the guestbook at St. John’s Cathedral in Taipei during at Feb. 24-26 visit to the Diocese of Taiwan. Photo: Catherine LeeLai, the Rev. Lily Chang, of St. James’ in Taichung West District said, encourages Episcopalians to be Christians in the world, not just in the church.“The bishop tells us, ‘we are a minority, don’t just hide in church. Lift up your head and bring love to the people,’’’ said Chang, who was excited to hear the presiding bishop preach about the Jesus Movement.An estimated 4.5 percent of Taiwan’s 23.5 million people identify as Christians, roughly half Protestant and half Roman Catholic. The Anglican Church reached Taiwan in the late 1890s; Episcopal chaplains brought the Episcopal Church to Taiwan when they ministered to American soldiers after World War II. The Diocese of Taiwan achieved full-diocesan status in 1988 and is part of Province VIII; the House of Bishops held its fall 2014 meeting in Taipei.Taiwan was the presiding bishop’s last stop on a Feb. 15-27 tour of Asia and Southeast Asia that included visits to the Anglican Provinces of the Philippines and Hong Kong, and the Protestant Christian Church in China.Ng; the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church; the Rev. David Copley, director of global partnerships and mission personnel; Neva Rae Fox, the church’s public affairs officer; and Sharon Jones, executive assistant to the presiding bishop, accompanied Curry on trip to Asia and Southeast Asia.

Mafileo Kefu yellow carded for solid hit against Castres

Posted on by

first_imgFriday Oct 9, 2009 Mafileo Kefu yellow carded for solid hit against Castres This has been a year of both on and off the field misdemeanour’s and subsequent suspensions. The offences have tarnished the image of the game slightly, with the strains of professionalism perhaps finally taking it’s toll.We won’t list all that’s happened, as you’ve been part of it right here on RD, so are fully aware of the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.It’s with that in mind though, that it brings up the question of suspensions and severity of refereeing decisions. As the image of the game might have taken a step back, it feels as though the men in charge are doing everything they can to clean it up.That means extra pressure on the men who control the on-field goings on – the referees. What this all means, is that at times the refs are going to get it wrong, incensing both players and fans alike.When Toulon played Castres last weekend, Mafileo Kefu was yellow card for this hit which was deemed to be a high shoulder charge. On first glance, combined with the reaction from the crowd and commentators, it seems like a pretty dirty hit.Watch it again though, and you’ll see that the man he tackled, Yoann Audrin, was leaning down into the tackle which made it seem high and clumsy. Kefu also actually managed to wrap both arms all the way around him.Shoulder contact was probably made with Audrins face, but taking all into account, perhaps the ref and assistant overreacted with the yellow card.On the other hand, I’m sure everyone will agree that we’d rather have officials that are overly strict rather than carelessly lenient.Feel free to give your thoughts on this hit as you might disagree with our view. I’ve no doubt opinions will vary. Remember though, please keep things clean and respectful.

Beginning of this project dates back to a personal experience encountered by the client, Dr. Jung Soik, a cultural cura­tor and architectural educator. Dr. Jung was studying in Milan, Italy, when she witnessed a local truck-drivers’ union strike against the rocketing oil price. Three days into the strike, Dr. Jung found herself unable to find fresh groceries in the city. This experience brought her attention to the vulnerability of various systems our everyday lives rely on. She began to imagine herself one day building a self-sufficient community. Sosoljip is Dr. Jung’s first step towards her dream.  Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinDr. Jung commissioned Lifethingsto build her net zero energy house. Yang Soo-in is an architect and public artist practicing in Korea and in the United States. Yang visited the fishing and farming village, four hours south of Seoul, more than 40 times and kept a daily construction blog during the project. Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe client and the architect wanted Sosoljip to be based on common sense in its design, construction, and budget. This 230 square meter house, which includes photovoltaic panels, solar heat collection tubes, wood burning boiler, four kitchens and four bathrooms was completed with 284,000 USD. Keeping the construction cost reasonable was very important for the project not because of budget limitations per se, but because Dr. Jung and Yang wanted the project to be a proof that it is possible to construct an environmentally conscious house including renewable energy production with a modest budget.  Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe client and her parents live in this house, which consists of three flexible spaces: the client’s space, her parents’ space, and Bed and Breakfast space. The main mass includes the parents’ living room, bedroom, kitchen and dining space. The client’s space is independent, yet connected to the main mass through a porch. It is a large studio with private living space on the mezzanine level. The studio serves a dual purpose as a library and a classroom for architecture workshops she runs. Bed and Breakfast functions as a buffer for the family’s sudden move from Seoul, where the family have lived all their lives, to Namhae, a remote countryside village. They will operate a B&B as well as invite family and friends. The client’s younger sister’s family, who still lives in Italy, will also spend a few months in Sosoljip every year.  Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinTaking advantage of the village’s characteristic landscape, stepped agricultural fields, bed and breakfast rooms are placed on the lower level of the house and the family space is on the level above, both of which are directly accessible from outside. The parents’ space is connected to B&B space through stairs, which allows the B&B rooms to function as extra bedrooms. The two B&B rooms share a flexible wall, which allows the space to be a large single room whenever desired. Roof of the B&B becomes a garden that opens up to the magnificent view of the sea before the client’s room.  Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe upper level is a long mass that runs east-west which shifts south-north to seperate the client’s space. The roof is sloped at an angle to receive best sun exposure year around and sized for the 3KW photovoltaic panels and solar heat collection tubes to fit. Wood-burning boiler is the secondary heat source to avoid fossil fuel usage.

Donbass protests demand justice for victims of U.S.-Ukraine war

Posted on by

first_imgProtest against the bombing of Gorlovka in the capital of Donetsk, May 28, 2015.With sorrow and rage, people in the Donbass region have ripped aside the veil of U.S. diplomatic maneuvering to reveal what is truly happening there: ongoing war crimes against children and other civilians by forces loyal to the extreme right-wing Ukrainian government backed by Washington.In several mass outpourings in late May, residents of the primarily Russian-speaking region — formerly part of eastern Ukraine, now the independent people’s republics of Donetsk and Lugansk — honored their dead and demanded an end to Kiev’s constant violations of the Minsk-2 ceasefire signed by Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany in February.On May 29, thousands of people attended the funeral of 11-year-old Katya Tuv and her father Yuriy in Gorlovka, Donetsk. The Tuv family home was destroyed during heavy shelling of the town by Ukrainian forces on the night of May 26. Katya’s mother, Yekaterina, lost her arm and her younger brother was also badly wounded.“Once again, the Ukrainian side showed that it won’t carry out the peace agreement,” charged Donetsk leader Aleksandr Zakharchenko. “They prefer to violate it blatantly.” (Novorossiya Today, May 29)In Donetsk’s capital city, some 7,000 people protested on May 28, two days after the slaughter of the Tuvs. A Requiem ceremony followed on June 1 for at least 69 children killed since the start of the Kiev regime’s “Anti-Terrorist Operation” against Donbass in April 2014.Also on May 27, thousands of people braved pouring rain in Alchevsk, Lugansk, for the funeral of assassinated Commander Alexei Mozgovoi and four of his companions of the Ghost Brigade anti-fascist militia and two civilians, all killed in an attack on May 23.Since early May, the Donetsk and Lugansk militias have recorded dozens of daily violations of the ceasefire by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, fascist battalions and mercenaries — sometimes up to 50 in a single day with increasing casualties. Gorlovka is one of the hardest-hit cities.Behind the crisis: Washington and Wall StreetIncreasingly, people in the Donbass are looking beyond the immediate threat posed by the coalition of oligarchs, neoliberal politicians and neo-Nazis that seized power in Kiev last year, and working to draw the world’s attention to the force behind it: U.S. imperialism.Direct talks in Sochi between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on May 12 had led to speculation that some deal might be in the works to tamp down the war in Donbass. Six days later, Republican neoconservative U.S. Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, one of the architects of the February 2014 coup that brought the Kiev junta to power, visited Moscow for talks about Minsk-2 (the cease-fire agreement signed last ­February).After Washington’s latest round of diplomatic maneuvers, during a meeting in mid-May with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, President Barack Obama declared that “Russia occupies a more aggressive stance” on Ukraine, TASS News Agency reported. This signaled that the Democratic-Republican bloc backing Ukraine’s war in Donbass continues and will still try to shift blame for the crisis onto Russia.An even clearer signal was the approval of a $17 billion U.S./International Monetary Fund emergency bailout, part of a $40 billion package including loans and other credits, to stave off default by the collapsing Ukrainian economy.The integration of neo-Nazi “volunteer battalions” into the Ukrainian military structure also continues, as does the U.S. Army’s training of Kiev’s fascist National Guard.Taking his cue from Washington, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko denounced the leaders of Donetsk and Lugansk, saying he would never negotiate with “homeless people, atheists and parasites who were given weapons, unable to feed themselves, [with an] irresponsible attitude towards children and the elderly.” (Gazeta.ru, May 29)He conveniently left out the fact that Ukraine and its Western allies have imposed an economic blockade on the Donbass, and that he is responsible for the bombing of children and the cutoff of pensions to seniors.The surprise appointment of fugitive ex-President of Georgia and noted U.S. puppet Mikhail Saakashvili as governor of Ukraine’s embattled Odessa region on May 29, and the concentration of junta military forces there, may signal increased repression not only for the multinational port city, but also for neighboring Moldova, whose oligarchic government is closely allied with Kiev. (Timer-Odessa.net)‘Now is the time to stand up’Citing intelligence reports, Donetsk Defense Ministry spokesperson Eduard Basurin warned that a team of U.S. chemical weapons specialists are traveling to Ukrainian-occupied Mariupol, where they may assist the Kiev junta’s forces in carrying out a provocation in order to charge the people’s republics with “crimes against humanity.” (News-Front.info, May 29)How will the anti-war and other people’s movements in the U.S. respond to Washington’s role in these war crimes?In a powerful video appeal, Russell Bonner Bentley, an anti-fascist Donbass militia volunteer known as “Texas,” took viewers on a tour of the bombed-out remains of the Tuv family home in Gorlovka.Speaking directly to U.S. workers and activists, Bonner Bentley said: “This is what the United States is doing in Ukraine. All the people that have been killed, all the homes like this that have been destroyed, are only because this war was started by the U.S. government. …“What kind of person are you? You see this video, you know what’s the truth. If you vote for Obama, you vote for Bush, you vote for Hillary Clinton, what kind of person are you to do that?” he asked.“This is your responsibility. [U.S.] Americans are like the ‘good Germans’ who supported Hitler and said we don’t care what the Nazis do in other countries as long as we have our jobs, watch sports and drink beer. …“Are you going to be on the side of the people who do this? If not, now is the time to make your move,” declared Bonner Bentley. “Now is the time to go to the street. Now is the time to stand up.”The video (in English with Russian subtitles) can be viewed here: youtube.com/watch?v=62r1GiD7JLcFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

U.S.-backed ground war intensifies in Yemen

Posted on by

first_imgSept. 7 — An escalating ground war is taking place for control of Yemen, the most underdeveloped state in the Middle East. Reports claim that United Arab Emirates Special Forces have been on the ground in the country fighting against the Shiite-led Ansurallah Movement, also called Houthis. Some 45 UAE troops were killed on Sept. 4 in battles with the Ansurallah. Meanwhile, bombing is continuing by the U.S.-backed coalition led by the Saudi monarchy and the Gulf Cooperation Council. Saudi troops have also reportedly been killed. The Ansurallah forces have attacked inside Saudi territory in response to ongoing provocations against the resistance forces.The Saudi- and GCC-led alliance, encompassing numerous states throughout the Middle East and North Africa, has made a concerted effort to drive out the Ansurallah from Yemen’s southern region for nearly six months. As many as 4,500 people have been killed in the fighting, which intensified last March 26 with a Pentagon- and CIA-supported bombing campaign in various regions of the country.For several weeks the Saudi-GCC coalition has also built an alliance of political forces in the south of the country that waged an offensive against Ansurallah positions in Aden. This strategic port city has been bombed extensively in an effort to create a haven for U.S.-backed elements to dominate the Persian Gulf and the entire region, including the Arabian Peninsula, the Horn of Africa and North Africa.Resistance to imperialist warDespite the consistent bombing of Yemen for nearly six months, the people still resist imperialist domination. The failure of the air campaign to dislodge the Ansurallah forces has prompted an escalation of the ground war.Nonetheless, the forces led by the Ansurallah, in alliance with the military and political forces remaining loyal to previous President Abduallah Ali Saleh, are punishing the U.S.-backed forces. The increase in the deaths of military personnel from the UAE and Saudi Arabia demonstrates the intense opposition to the Pentagon/NATO-supported coalition.In a Sept. 7 interview on Press TV, Middle East expert Jalal Fairooz based in London said of the aggressive forces bombing and launching ground offensives in southern and central Yemen, “They are supplied by the United States. They are being backed by the United States. The United States agreed on this aggression in the United Nations. Actually they have tried with the Russians and the Chinese not to have a veto against this aggression when there was a resolution in the United Nations. The Americans have actually agreed with the Saudis. The Saudis have told the Americans five months and so ago that they are going to start this war against the Yemeni people and that was the case; the Americans have agreed.” This analyst goes on to emphasize that “it is not a surprise that the American president should send condolences to Riyadh because they are part of it. More of that, some of the airplanes which are bombing Yemen are being captained — they are being run — by the Americans themselves. These ships of the United States in the Arabian Sea are guiding the airplanes where to bomb in Yemen.”The situation is becoming critical for the imperialist-coordinated military units. Other states allied with the Pentagon and the CIA are now deploying their militaries.On Sept. 7 the Qatari government announced that it was sending troops into Yemen to shore up the forces of the Saudi-GCC alliance. Whether this development will turn the tide of the war remains to be seen.Reuters press agency reported Sept. 7, “Qatar has sent 1,000 ground troops to Yemen, Doha-based Al Jazeera television said, escalating Gulf Arab intervention in Yemen’s war ahead of a planned offensive against Iranian-backed Houthis holding the capital Sanaa. Qatari pilots had already joined months of Saudi-led air strikes on the Houthi militia, which seized Sanaa a year ago and then advanced across much of the country, forcing President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile in March.”The same article noted that imperialist-allied forces had “‘crossed the al-Wadia border post’ between Saudi Arabia and Yemen and was heading to Marib — where Hadi loyalists have been preparing for the thrust toward Sanaa. Saudi-owned al Arabiya satellite network also said Qatari and Saudi reinforcements had crossed the frontier.”Reuters added, “The first reported involvement of Qatari ground forces in Yemen coincided with an intensification of the conflict a few days after a rocket strike in Marib that killed dozens of soldiers including Saudis and Emiratis.”War with Iran resumes despite nuclear dealThe nuclear agreement with Iran is expected to become official with the upcoming Senate vote. However, the war against Iran and its allies in the region continues in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.Since March 26 and the new phase of the U.S. war against Yemen, the administration of President Barack Obama has provided diplomatic cover for the efforts to destroy the Ansurallah resistance forces allied with Tehran. The Obama government continues to bomb neighboring Syria under the guise of fighting the so-called Islamic State after creating the conditions for the weakening of President Bashar al-Assad.At the same time, Iraq, which the U.S. invaded in both 1991 and 2003 and occupied for eight years, is also being bombed under the same pretext. The burgeoning migrant crisis impacting tens of millions is a direct result of these war policies of successive U.S. administrations. The anti-war movement in the U.S. and Western Europe must take up the challenge of opposing imperialist intervention by explaining that it is their own governments which must accept responsibility for the worst humanitarian refugee crisis in Europe since the conclusion of World War II. In the U.S. and Western Europe unemployment, poverty and racial tensions are escalating. The militarization of the police from Ferguson and Baltimore to Detroit and New York is the domestic reflection of a policy of total domination of the world.These factors provide the basis for linking internal struggles for jobs, guaranteed incomes and the end to police terrorism with the movements against war and imperialism. The working class and the oppressed in the imperialist states cannot be fully liberated until the repression, oppression and exploitation of the peoples of the world is halted.

Workers School lifts up Southern organizing

Posted on by

first_imgRaleigh, N.C.Workers from 12 Southern cities, several workplaces and a number of unions gathered here for the Southern Workers School over the Aug. 5-7 weekend to continue their study of the political economy of the Southern region of the U.S. and develop organizing skills. Attendees also participated in a strategy session about “How might the 2016 elections open opportunities for organizing Southern workers?”The Southern Workers Assembly has been building the Southern Workers School as an important institution to train and develop rank-and-file workers to organize the South. The school has held eight sessions since March, tackling issues such as the role of slavery in shaping the political economy of the U.S. South, lessons from the history of past organizing campaigns such as Operation Dixie and the Civil Rights movement, fighting women’s oppression in the workplace, and building campaigns at work for more protections for LGBTQ people after passage of North Carolina’s House Bill 2, which targets trans people. The school also offered basic organizing skills such as learning how to map your workplace and tips for one-on-one discussions with co-workers.“The school is really important for us to continue to draw in Southern workers to educate ourselves and to continue to broaden out this fighting movement at the workplace,” stated Leonard Riley, leader of International Association of Longshoremen Local 1422 and the Carolina Alliance for Fair Employment in Charleston, S.C.The latest school session occurred amid a massive year-long media onslaught about the capitalist presidential elections, making workers feel like almost nothing else is going on in the world or at their workplaces. While most workers are confronted with an impossible choice between voting for an outright racist billionaire who hates workers like Donald Trump, or holding their nose and voting for another racist, anti-worker candidate like Hillary Clinton, the school sought to elevate workers’ roles in building a social justice union movement. After all, it is the class struggle that is the motive force that changes history, not rich politicians.The class struggle expandsThe movements for Black Lives Matter and Fight for $15 have rocked this country over the last few years and totally changed the expectations of the masses. They are forcing the politicians to change their political programs in an attempt to hold onto their fading support base.“These politicians don’t care about low-wage workers or Black people. They just want our votes,” stated Rolanda McMillan, a McDonald’s worker from Richmond and leader of Raise Up. “That’s why we must organize our people and build power to challenge them and the corporations.”Delegations participating in the school included ILA dockworkers from Charleston, S.C.; fast food workers and members of Raise Up from several cities, including Richmond, Durham and Biscoe; state and city workers belonging to the United Electrical Workers (UE) from three states, including Local 150 from North Carolina, Local 160 from Virginia and Local 170 from West Virginia; the National Nurses Union/National Nurses Organizing Committee leadership from El Paso, Atlanta and Tampa; members of the Communication Workers from Virginia, some who victoriously struck Verizon and won a better contract and others who are currently voting on an AT&T contract; day laborers from New York City who belong to Jornaleros Unidos; and members of the Pitt County Coalition Against Racism in North Carolina. Several other workers who are not yet organized but are helping to form organizing committees came from plants and workplaces across the South.Leaving the school, workers identified roughly 50 workplaces in their areas where they will begin leafleting as part of a massive agitation campaign to draw in more workers to the Southern Workers Assembly, build organizing committees and plant seeds for future union organizing campaigns.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
