Curry y la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados la reverenda Gay Clark Jennings.Estimados Obispos y Diputados:Cuando les escribimos a principios de junio sobre la necesidad de considerar planes alternativos para la 80ª Convención General, esperábamos que los meses de verano nos traerían más claridad sobre el curso de la pandemia y cómo podríamos planificar para 2021 y más allá. Pero a medida que pasa el verano, los totales de infección y muertos en los Estados Unidos están subiendo cada vez más alto, incluso cuando el virus ha sido controlado en otras partes del mundo. Seguimos afligidos por los hijos de Dios que hemos perdido a esta enfermedad terrible, por aquellos cuyas vidas y subsistencia han sido abrumadas, y por aquellos cuyos espíritus están sufriendo de largos meses de distancia física de sus seres queridos.En medio de esta devastación, sin embargo, varios informes brindan esperanza que el desarrollo rápido de vacunas y terapéuticas eficaces podrían cambiar el curso de la pandemia y dejar reanudarse varios aspectos de nuestra vida comunitaria. Porque la situación sigue tan incierta, todavía no estamos preparados para tomar una decisión sobre cómo y cuando celebraremos la 80ª Convención General. Pero gracias a los esfuerzos del grupo de trabajo que convocamos en mayo, estamos más cerca a saber cómo procederemos si no es posible reunirnos en Baltimore el próximo verano.En caso de que no podemos convocarnos de manera segura en persona el 30 de junio hasta el 9 de julio de 2021, aplazaremos la 80ª Convención General a 2022, colaborando con nuestros socios en Baltimore para determinar las fechas apropiadas. Durante el verano de 2021, celebraremos una convocación virtual de adoración y oración para ayudarnos a escuchar lo que le dice el Espíritu a la iglesia mientras preparamos reunirnos en la Convención General. Y para aprovechar el momento adaptivo que nos enfrenta, nombraremos comités legislativos de ambos diputados y obispos con suficiente antelación de las nuevas fechas de la Convención General, encargándoles a empezar su trabajo de manera virtual utilizando las nuevas destrezas en línea y de Zoom que todos nosotros hemos adquirido en los últimos meses.La decisión sobre cómo proceder es muy importante. Ambos vidas y millones de dólares en contratos de la convención están en juego, y no hay manera de saber lo que las condiciones de la salud pública y económicas prevalentes serán para el próximo verano. Pero en todo, nuestros valores primarios siguen siendo el bien común y la salud, seguridad y bienestar de las personas que viajarían a la Convención General y las personas que nos encontraríamos mientras viajamos y nos reunimos.En el otoño, reevaluaremos la situación de la salud pública y consultaremos de nuevo con epidemiólogos que nos han dado su tiempo y consejo tan generosamente. En octubre, esperamos pedirle al Consejo Ejecutivo su asesoría y consentimiento para nuestra decisión final sobre cómo procederá la 80ª Convención General, pero reconocemos que quizás no será posible finalizar nuestros planes tan rápido.Sabemos que la incertidumbre que continua sobre el horario de la Convención General hace difícil planificar los presupuestos y horarios para 2021 y más allá, pero esperamos que el entender el plan alternativo les ayudará a prepararse por lo que podría venir.  Representa nuestros mejores esfuerzos de amarse los unos a los otros como Jesús nos lo ordenó, lo que es nuestro testimonio más grande y llamado más alto.Fielmente,Rvdmo.

Curry and President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings.Dear Bishops and Deputies:When we wrote to you in early June about the need to consider alternative plans for the 80th General Convention, we hoped that the summer months would bring us more clarity about the course of the pandemic and how we might reasonably plan for 2021 and beyond. But as summer stretches on, infection and death totals in the United States are climbing ever higher, even as the virus has been brought under control in other parts of the world. We continue to grieve for the children of God who have been lost to this terrible disease, for those whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered, and for those whose spirits are suffering from long months of physical distance from those they love.In the midst of this devastation, however, some reports offer hope that the fast-track development of effective vaccines and therapeutics could change the course of the pandemic and allow some aspects of our communal life to resume. Because the situation continues to be so uncertain, we are not yet ready to make a decision about how and when we will hold the 80th General Convention. But thanks to the work of the task group we convened in May, we are closer to knowing how we will proceed if it is not possible to gather in Baltimore next summer.In the event that we cannot convene safely in person from June 30 to July 9, 2021, we will postpone the 80th General Convention to 2022, working with our partners in Baltimore as we determine appropriate dates. During the summer of 2021, we will hold an online convocation of worship and prayer to help us hear what the Spirit is saying to the church as we prepare to gather at General Convention. And to make best use of the adaptive moment now facing us, we will appoint both deputy and bishop legislative committees well in advance of the new dates of General Convention, charging them to begin their work virtually using the new online and Zoom skills that we have all gained in the last several months.The decision about how to proceed is a weighty one. Both lives and millions of dollars in convention contracts are at stake, and we have very little way to know what the prevailing public health and economic conditions will be by next summer. But in all things, our primary values continue to be the common good and the health, safety and welfare of General Convention attendees and the people we would encounter while traveling and meeting.In the fall, we will reevaluate the public health situation and consult again with epidemiologists who have given us their time and advice so generously. In October, we hope to ask Executive Council for their advice and consent to our final decision about how the 80th General Convention will proceed, but we recognize that it may not be possible to finalize our plans that quickly.We know that the continued uncertainty about the timing of General Convention makes it difficult to plan budget and schedules for 2021 and beyond, but we hope that understanding the alternative plan will help you prepare for what might be in store. It represents our best efforts to love one another as Jesus commanded, which is our greatest witness and highest calling.Faithfully,The Most Rev. Michael B. CurryPresiding BishopThe Rev.

Mercury News reports that the deal caps annual rent increases at 5%, plus inflation, with a maximum of 10% per year. The bill still must be approved by both houses of the Legislature. The bill, authored by San Francisco Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu, is similar to the one initially proposed by Chiu, he said in an interview.“We are in the most intense housing crisis in our state’s history,” he said. “We have millions of Californians who are living paycheck-to-paycheck and are one rent increase away from being forced out of their homes and becoming homeless.”He added, “This bill will protect millions of Californians from egregious rent increases and predatory evictions, while providing landlords and the rental housing industry with the opportunity to make a fair rate of return.”Some real estate groups, such as the California Association of Realtors, have expressed opposition to the bill, while others say that they will not oppose it.“The proposed version of (the bill) headed to the senate floor will not incentivize production of rental housing or help more people find an affordable place to live,” California Association of Realtors President Jared Martin said in a statement. “It discourages new rental housing, which is why C.A.R., representing more than 200,000 real estate agents and brokers across California, strongly opposes it.”Other bills advanced in California to address housing shortages and prices, including ones to streamline the approval process for projects that comply with local zoning rules, to make it easier to build on surplus public land and to remove barriers to in-law units.“We need to move forward on all fronts simultaneously to address the production of 3.5 million units of new housing, the preservation of affordable housing and the protection of millions of tenants,” Chiu said. “As soon as this session is done, we will be back at it, looking for the most significant ideas to accomplish all of these simultaneously.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: Affordability Prices Rental Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more
