California: Bishop denounces Charlottesville violence, calls for non-violent resistance to…

first_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Advocacy Peace & Justice, Featured Jobs & Calls Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Shreveport, LA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL [Episcopal Diocese of California] “With malice toward none, with charity for all…,” so President Lincoln wrote in his Second Inaugural Address, in 1865, with the devastating American Civil War not yet formally concluded. Mr. Lincoln’s ringing words fit with the commitment of Mahatma Gandhi and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as their leadership is properly, but too narrowly understood — a fundamental commitment to not making any person into an enemy. But the Mahatma and the Rev. Dr. King would have never stopped with the partial quotation, above, that we know so well; they would have also have gone on to say, with President Lincoln, “…with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right…”That is, at this moment we are clear that hatred of and violence toward people of color, of women, of the LGBTQ community, of the poor, of immigrants must be named as unequivocally wrong. The truth, as God gives us to see the truth, is that God is love, and all that is not love needs to be held up in the light of love, and opposed.For my part, I will, to the best of my abilities hold to the dual practices of not demonizing or making enemies of people, of holding to non-violence and the way of love, and at the same time of resolutely naming evil for what it is, and for resisting the wrong wherever it shows itself. Sadly, evil and wrong have, in these latest manifestations, wrapped themselves in the clothing of faith. The perversity of white supremacists appropriating the cross, a symbol of a very real instrument of torture and death used against a member of a subjugated people, a person of color, is beyond ironic — it is deeply distorted.Finally, let me say that all you who would walk the path of love and resist evil, please hear the admonition of Jesus of Nazareth — “Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” Too often those who choose the path of love are models of innocence but lacking in the prepared wisdom of the serpent.  In the coming days we will work with faith-based and civil society partners to offer training in non-violent resistance. Remember, Rosa Parks was not just a hard-working Black woman who was so tired that she determined, in the moment, to not move to the back of the bus. Rosa Parks was a woman who had prepared through months of training and was part of a close community of activists.Take hope — God does give us the light to see what is right. We see the right through the light cast by the lamp of history, through the wisdom of sacred writings, through the living examples of veterans of past struggles, such as Representative John Lewis, by the prompting of God in our midst, in our hearts. Let us heed the light and follow the right.The Rt. Rev.

Everything you need can be found at Westcourt

first_imgCazalys at Westcourt is one of Cairns’ premier sporting facilities. PICTURE: STEWART McLEANFROM rock concerts to top-flight sports fixtures and a Cairns shopping hub, Westcourt residents have just about everything at their fingertips.A large dairy farm in the late 19th century, the area is now a diverse and populous inner-city suburb.Cairns real estate agent Chris Gay has worked from his Westcourt office for 25 years and said the location was hard to beat for convenience. “My son lives at Westcourt and for him it’s a two-minute drive to the office,” he said.“People appreciate the fact that the area has nice restaurants, shops and they have just done a wonderful job refurbishing the Bungalow Hotel.“There are also some beautiful homes here, especially Queenslanders.“Some people like living at the Northern Beaches, which is fine, but it’s hard to beat a $12 taxi ride home from the city.” The suburb was originally known as West Cairns and, according to Cairns Regional Council, was set to be renamed Westgate.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoHowever, following the tragic collapse of Melbourne’s Westgate Bridge in 1970, the name was changed to Westcourt.The average selling price of Westcourt homes as of January this year, according to CoreLogic, was $351,000 – more than $120,000 below its neighbour Parramatta Park.Units are abundant in the suburb and delivered average rental yields in excess of 7 per cent over the 12 months to January. Westcourt’s Cazalys Stadium will this year host AFL premiers the Western Bulldogs and music superstar Elton John, while DFO Cairns shopping centre is in the early stages of a multi-million dollar revamp.Retiree Suzanne Haslam, 68, has lived on Mann St for more than 20 years and couldn’t be happier to call Westcourt home.“I’m close to all the amenities and have wonderful neighbours on both sides,” she said. “I’m a carer for one of my neighbours. There are some families on the street but most of the people are a bit older.“If I had all the money in the world and could afford to live in the richest suburbs, I would still stay here.”last_img read more

Cricket News IND vs WI, 1st Test: India enjoy 89-run lead over West Indies at lunch on Day 3

first_imgNew Delhi: India maintain their stranglehold over the West Indies with a healthy 75-run first innings lead, which swelled to 89 by lunch time on the third day of the opening cricket Test here on Saturday.India bowled out West Indies for 222 in 74.2 overs in their first innings in reply to 297 with Ishant Sharma returning with best figures of 5 for 43.Besides Ishant, Mohammed Shami (2/48) and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja (2/64) scalped two wickets a piece.For West Indies, Roston Chase top-scored with 48, while skipper Jason Holder played a fighting 39-run knock as the hosts failed to build up partnerships.At the opening break of the third day, India were 14 for no loss in their second innings with Mayank Agarwal batting on 8 and K L Rahul on 6.Earlier, resuming at the overnight score of 189 for eight, Holder and Miguel Cummins stuck together for 103 balls, forging a crucial 41-run partnership for the ninth wicket to take West Indies close to the Indian total.Holder kept a calm head and guided his younger partner Cummins brilliantly to get as close as possible to the Indian total.While Holder made 39 off 65 balls with the help of five boundaries, Cummins gave his skipper the right support from the other end by just staying at the crease although he couldn’t open his account.Cummins’ determination to stay at the crease and give his skipper company can be gauged from the fact that he played 45 balls for no runs.The Indian bowlers found it difficult to break the stubborn partnership between Holder and Cummins as they needed 85 balls in the opening session of the third day to dislodge the stand.The partnership was finally broken when Holder edged a Mohammed Shami delivery to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant behind the stumps in the 74th over.Left-arm spinner Jadeja finally drew curtains on West Indies innings when he cleaned up Cummins an over later.End of the West Indies innings. They are bowled out for 222. #TeamIndia lead by 75 runs. 5 for Ishant, 2 each for Shami & Jadeja. 1 for Bumrah #WIvIND pic.twitter.com/kFSzywVUoN— BCCI (@BCCI) August 24, 2019 For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
