Gay Jennings is elected president of the House of Deputies

first_img July 12, 2012 at 1:01 am Congrats to Gay and to Byron. Associate Rector Columbus, GA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI W. Lee Hicks says: Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET General Convention, The Rev. Holly Eden says: July 26, 2012 at 9:32 pm The fact that you were elected on the FIRST ballot demonstrates the confidence people have in you and your God-given gifts! TEC is blessed indeed! House of Deputies President-elect Gay Jennings reads a statement after her election July 10 in Indianapolis. ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings from the Diocese of Ohio, an eight-time deputy to General Convention, was elected president of the House of Deputies this morning on the first ballot. She will begin her three-year term at the conclusion of General Convention on July 12.She will be the third woman elected to the position and the first to succeed another woman. Bonnie Anderson of the Diocese of Michigan is completing a second, three-year term at this convention and chose not to stand for election to a third term.Jennings addressed her fellow deputies immediately after the vote totals were announced and thanked them for their confidence in her. She said, “I will do my very best to serve you, this great house and the church that we all love.”She said a special thanks to Deputy Martha Alexander of North Carolina and the Rev. Frank Logue, deputy from Georgia, who also had been nominated, and said she looked forward to working with them. Jennings received 426 votes, five more than the required number to elect. Logue received 266 votes, and Alexander received 140 votes. Alexander then asked that Jennings be elected by acclamation.Jennings’ husband, the Rev. Albert Jennings, joined her at the podium as she asked deputies to share their ideas with her. “Please let me know how I can best serve you,” she said.In a written statement released afterward, Jennings said she stood for election because “I believe that God is calling me to work with leaders across the church to change the way we do business in the next triennium. For the Episcopal Church to matter in the 21st century, we have to find ways to move forward together.”At a news conference, she was asked how the debate over restructuring the church will inform her work as president. Jennings, who was co-chair of the convention’s Committee on Structure, said the group’s deliberations had helped her to see that “this is something that we have to do.” She said, “Bishops, deputies, staff, all kinds of people are saying, ‘We need change.’ I’m not sure we’ve heard a lot of concrete suggestions, but an appetite to delve into a process of exploration and discernment.”She also said she looks forward to working with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, whose term ends in three years. “I will do everything in my power to work collaboratively and collegially,” she said, adding, “The presiding bishop speaks for the whole church. I speak for the House of Deputies.”The House of Deputies is one half of the bicameral General Convention, the Episcopal Church’s legislative body that meets every three years. It includes up to four deputies who are lay people and four who are clergy from each of the Episcopal Church’s 111 jurisdictions represented there. The House of Bishops, made up of all sitting and retired bishops, is the other half. Legislation must pass both houses to be adopted.In addition to presiding during General Convention, Jennings now also will serve as vice president of the Executive Council and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (the Episcopal Church’s corporate entity). She also will appoint clergy and lay members of all the standing commissions and convention legislative committees.Jennings left the staff of CREDO, a wellness program of the Church Pension Fund, in June, after working there for nine years. Before that she was canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of Ohio for 17 years. She was ordained deacon in 1978 and priest in 1979, and served parishes in Virginia and Ohio early in her ministry. She just completed a six-year term on the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council. She also is the clergy member of the Episcopal Church’s delegation to the Anglican Consultative Council, the Anglican Communion’s main policy-making body, which next meets this fall in Auckland, New Zealand.— Melodie Woerman is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

Joe Mchahwar: The path to liberation, from Petrograd to Syria

first_imgJoe MchahwarThis talk was given on Nov. 18 at the 2017 Workers World Party national conference in Newark, N.J.To reduce the legacy of the October Revolution to a victory of labor over capital, to peasant over landlord, is to overlook one of its greatest achievements. Perhaps even more important than those magnificent triumphs was the triumph of colonized over colonizer. The Bolshevik Revolution was the greatest anti-colonial revolution up to that point in history, in terms of both scale and accomplishments.The revolution transformed the “prison house of nations,” an empire where the oppressed nations were flagrantly denied fundamental rights, into a union of equals where every people could develop and prosper along their own path. Pivotal to this development was the Soviet of Nationalities, a wing of the Soviet Union’s bicameral legislature that granted equal representation to every nation. Imagine the progress this kind of tool could unleash on a country such as ours, where we still live under the yoke of a slave masters’ constitution? The first leader of the Soviet Union following Lenin’s death, Josef Stalin, was formerly People’s Commissar for Nationalities. This put him in charge of ensuring the right of oppressed nations to self-determination within the new revolutionary society. Stalin was a Georgian from a very poor background. Georgia was one of the oppressed nations within the Russian empire. One month after the revolution, Stalin wrote the “Appeal to the Moslems of Russia and the East,” calling on Muslim people to find common cause with the revolution and unite against European colonialism. Many other leaders of the revolution came from oppressed nationalities, such as the founder of the Red Army Leon Trotsky, who was Jewish.The tremendous battle against colonialism waged by the revolution spread far beyond the borders of the Soviet Union. In one of the first acts of the revolution, the Bolsheviks called for a just and democratic peace to end the first world war. They addressed this statement primarily to the people of the warring countries, calling on all sides to respect the self-determination of all peoples. The revolution continued to expose the imperialists by publicizing secret treaties they had written. This included the Sykes-Picot agreement, a conspiracy between the French and British empires to divide West Asia between them.The Soviet Union grew into a center of organizing and support for people fighting colonialism around the planet. Through offering solidarity with education, diplomacy, trade, training and arms, the USSR became the midwife to an era of national liberation. This solidarity and the geopolitical counterbalance offered by the USSR benefited many struggles that weren’t Marxist-Leninist or were even opposed to the USSR. The movements, states and victories of this era were just as much gains of the October Revolution as the progress made within the territory of the USSR. Their fates were inextricably linked, something we saw clearly after the counterrevolution in the Soviet Union.On the heels of the counterrevolution, the imperialist bourgeoisie led by the United States began the most genocidal colonial campaign since the 19th century. No corner of the Earth was spared its wrath. Under the ridiculous pretexts of such utter nonsense as a “war on terrorism,” “humanitarian intervention” and “regime change,” the imperialists marched forward on a scorched-earth offensive. Entire regions were stocked with occupation forces and whole states were liquidated. New bourgeois terminology such as “failed states” came into being as means of explaining away the massive destruction.In West Asia a new Sykes-Picot was in development. Contrary to the popular notion that the war against Iraq, the destruction of Libya and the war on terror were failures, these wars and their so-called failed states were a long-contrived means to redivide the region. Each war fed into another; counterrevolution against the remnants of national liberation was consciously fomented within the destruction.This strategy culminated in the completely genocidal war against Syria. Syria is and was the most powerful bastion against imperialism in the Arab world. It was a long-time ally of the Soviet Union and the very foundations of its society are pluralism, secularism, pan-Arabism, Arab socialism and independence. Syria consistently defended Palestine with diplomatic and material support. Part of its land has been occupied by Zionists for over 40 years, but it has never made peace with them. It was key to facilitating the axis of resistance, an alliance among anti-imperialist forces in West Asia. All these factors made Syria the biggest obstacle to imperialist plans for a new Sykes-Picot.The imperialists invaded Syria utilizing counterrevolutionaries they had been fostering for decades. Forces such as al-Qaida and the so-called Islamic State were directly created, funded, supported and directed by U.S. imperialism to liquidate Syrian society. The U.S. and its allies hoped they could weaken Syria enough to come to the aid of counterrevolutionaries, as they had in Libya. Pressure from the masses and other world powers, such as Russia, was great enough to avoid this disaster. The imperialists increased their support for the various death squads in the country and used them as a pretext, as they have in many other places, to begin bombing and sending soldiers. Their bombing campaign worked in tandem with the contra forces, destroying more of Syria every day.Did the Syrian people or the state they labored so hard to maintain make any concessions in vain hopes of easing the pressure? No, they did the opposite. The new constitution of 2012 doubled down on their core principles. Part of the preamble reads: “Syria has occupied an important political position as it is the beating heart of Arabism, the forefront of confrontation with the Zionist enemy and the bedrock of resistance against colonial hegemony on the Arab world and its capabilities and wealth.”This understanding lives in the hearts of the Syrian people. They fought for decades against imperialist-sponsored reaction to maintain the culture, unity and prosperity of their people and the peoples of the Arab world. That is why Syria today stands near complete victory over counterrevolutionary forces. That isn’t to say Syria’s allies weren’t instrumental. The solidarity of the axis of resistance, Hezbollah and the Islamic Republic of Iran has been imperative. We can’t deny the importance of Russia’s support either.Russia’s support has a dual character, the most obvious being that Syria is Russia’s only direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. The other is the fact that the success of a new Sykes-Picot and the transformation of Syria into a breeding ground of reaction would have catastrophic consequences even the imperialists can’t foresee. Imperialism is in a struggle to the death against contraction and that is why it must expand. This expansion is becoming so destructive and volatile that even capitalist countries like Russia must begrudgingly confront it or be consumed.The near victory of Syria over imperialism is the greatest victory of the oppressed in decades. The foundation of modern imperialism is a momentum built through destruction. The Syrian people and their allies halted this momentum in a region at the core of their strategy.You can see the imperialists’ devastation and bewilderment in their orientation toward the region. Ceaseless threats pour over Iran every day. The landmark nuclear deal they negotiated against genocidal sanctions imposed on them is being threatened by a furious United States. In the midst of unprecedented internal chaos, Saudi Arabia kidnapped the Prime Minister of Lebanon and has declared war on the entire country. This effectively pushes the Lebanese  state apparatus and society to further embrace the resistance axis. At the same time, Riyadh is threatened by missiles from the revolutionaries in Yemen they have failed to crush.Imperialism isn’t only being hindered by armed struggle. Socialist China has fought imperialism by building infrastructure and investing in oppressed nations. Nearly all continents have benefited from the development offered by socialism with Chinese characteristics. China’s policies contradict the underdevelopment, austerity, dependence and destruction imperialism sows to maintain profit.Imperialism is on the ropes. For the first time since the socialist bloc was destroyed, the correlation of forces is shifting and the imperialist superstructure is losing coherence. This isn’t to say the struggle will be easy from here or that it will collapse in on itself. An enemy that feels like it has nothing to lose is an extremely volatile and dangerous one. This is illustrated clearly by the countless threats pouring from Washington this year. Nearly every day a different country is threatened with annihilation in the most crass way. The loss of strategic conflicts and its own internal contradictions leave the future uncertain. We must be prepared for the desperate measures that will be taken in a vain attempt to recoup losses in West Asia and elsewhere.We have to capitalize on the victories our comrades around the world have won for us. We may be at different barricades but we are all in the same struggle to the death against imperialism. We must be prepared to defend our allies around the world at all costs. The battle cry of Lenin lives on in our struggle today: “Workers and oppressed people of the world unite!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Officers encourage proactive measures during holiday season

first_imgCommunity reaches out to homeless Facebook Linkedin ReddIt printThe recent break-ins in the Overton Park neighborhood has one police officer suggesting that displaying alarm company signs does not prevent thieves from breaking into homes.“When I suggest this people think I’m crazy, but if you have an alarm system do not post stickers or yard signs,” said Fort Worth Police Lt. William Hix, a resident of Overton Park.He explained that most burglars have hit enough homes to know how long they have inside until an officer responds depending on the alarm system sign that is displayed. When the burglars kick down a door and the alarm goes off, they have no idea what the alarm company is, how fast people are going to respond, or if it automatically notifies the homeowner.“The average time for an officer to respond to an alarm call is 25 minutes,” said Officer Charles Gonzalez, the Overton Park neighborhood officer. “Most burglaries happen between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when homeowners are at work and going about their daily lives.”The most recent occurrence happened on the evening of Dec. 7 at Sheryl Preston’s home located on Ranch View Road. Thieves broke into the master bathroom window located near the back of the couple’s home and stole jewelry.“For the future we plan on being more careful about who we have in our house because it seems like the thieves knew where to go,” said Preston. “We also plan on installing cameras around the house.”Comparison of burglaries in the 76109 zip code from November 1st to December 9th from this year compared to last. There were 3 break-ins this year compared to 14 last year.

Vivint, a home security system, allows the homeowner to communicate with a visitor using cameras that can send live footage to a cell phone. The homeowners did not recover the packages, but they were able to catch the burglars on camera and send it to police.“I’ve started sending packages to my office downtown so I know it’s protected and we aren’t at risk of losing packages,” said Ronnie Brown, a resident on Arroyo Road.The area crime prevention specialist, Kala Brown, says sending a package to an office, notifying a neighbor or arranging to pick up at a location can decrease the chances of theft.“Lighting is one of the biggest and cheapest ways to prevent a break-in,” said Kala Brown.She also said she disagrees with not displaying signs in the front yard but adds that having efficient locks, cameras and security system will decrease theft.“Crime is increasing everywhere in Fort Worth and the nation because of the holiday season,” said Kala Brown. “We are also more aware of it because of sites like Nextdoor that are a ‘virtual crime watch.’”The police department has a program for homeowners to arrange a free home security inspection. The inspection, made by a crime prevention specialist and a police officer, will inform the homeowner of vulnerabilities. An appointment can be arranged by calling 817-991-8476.

Meet the challenges of the new millennium

first_imgMeet the challenges of the new millenniumOn 1 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. 25 years of HSE sees workplace deaths down – but there’s still much to doWe are living in a very different world to that which existed when theHealth and Safety at Work Act first came into being, said HSC CommissionerJoyce Edmond-Smith, the first person to address the conference. She pointed to the changing patterns of work which mean the service sectornow represents 70 per cent of all jobs, the majority of them in firms employingless than 50 people. A multi-disciplinary approach, making occupational health support availablefor small firms – multiple jobholders, agency workers, home workers and peopleworking away from base – is essential, she said. Although much has been achieved in the quarter-century that the HSE has beenin existence, with the number of workplace deaths now a quarter of what it wasthen, there is much to be done to meet the challenges of the next millennium. She spoke about the new health challenges that occupational healthprofessionals were faced with: an older workforce, workers coping with chronicconditions, pregnant and nursing mothers in the workplace and the newuncertainties posed by new technology. The old health challenges still persist, she added. In all, 2 million peoplein Britain have a health problem which they believe is caused by work. “If we are to meet these challenges we must adapt, we must take risksand try new approaches and we must give a new impetus to our activities,”she said.

Bids on New Pickleball Courts Well Over Budget

first_imgA growing legion of Pickleball devotees in Ocean City may have to wait a bit longer to find a permanent venue on the island.The lone bid on construction of outdoor courts in Ocean City was opened on Thursday and came in at $604,864.75.The city had dedicated only $250,000 for the work in a $79.6 million five-year capital plan approved in March.Fred M. Schiavone Construction Inc. of Malaga, N.J. — the contractor for two phases of Ocean City Boardwalk reconstruction and for the new Welcome Center on the Route 52 causeway — was the only bidder.The city had asked for bids on converting part of an existing parking lot at Shelter Road and Tennessee Avenue (near the Recycling Center and Humane Society) into five Pickleball courts with fencing and a windbreak system. The specifications also asked for the bids to include the replacement of the artificial grass surface on the six tennis courts (40,000 square feet) at the Ocean City Intermediate School.The bid breakdown (see detail) includes $418,000 for the tennis court surface alone.The other part of the bid included $186,874.75 for the work on the Pickleball courts at Shelter Road. Schiavone submitted an alternate bid of $29,785 to resurface and equip five Pickleball courts that exist on a roughly paved area outside the Intermediate School.Ocean City Business Administrator Jim Mallon said Monday that the city administration is still working with City Council on an alternate plan, and he was unable to comment further.When City Council approved the solicitation of bids on May 15, Mallon had said he was hopeful that the project could be completed before the end of summer.Pickleball is a tennis-like game played on a smaller court with a whiffle ball and a solid paddle. Because the game is easy to learn (and fun to master) and does not require covering a lot of ground, it is increasingly popular with players of all ages. A group of more than 100 players has been finding playing time indoors at the Ocean City Sports and Civic Center and outdoors at the Intermediate School.Read more: Ocean City Opens Bidding Process for Pickleball Courts Lines for five crude Pickleball courts are painted on asphalt beside the Ocean City Intermediate School.
