Washington vigil runs into tension with some protesters as church…

Photo: Daryl Lobban[Episcopal News Service] By all accounts, an ecumenical prayer vigil organized by the Diocese of Washington didn’t go as planned June 3. A White House security perimeter forced the event north of its intended site on the grounds of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Lafayette Square. And with news cameras trained on the vigil’s organizers, some protesters complained that undue attention was being drawn to clergy leaders rather than to the cause that the clergy were supporting.Those circumstances scrambled plans for a vigil, but participants still were able to pray.In the street just north of St. John’s, standing in front of a line of police in riot gear, they offered a prayer of solidarity. Washington Bishop Mariann Budde, joined by fellow Episcopalians and leaders from other Christian denominations, as well as Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, prayed in support of peaceful protests against racial injustice and police brutality that have swept the country and spread worldwide since the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while in police custody.Floyd, 46, died May 25 after being pinned to the ground by police for nearly nine minutes with an officer’s knee to his neck in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since then, The Episcopal Church has amplified its calls to end systemic racism, as clergy and lay leaders have joined other Americans in expressing outrage at the number of people of color killed by police and white vigilantes.“We as people of faith are here to stand with you and for you,” Budde told the protesters in Washington, according to a WAMU-FM reporter’s Twitter updates, as Budde and other religious leaders attempted to get the June 3 vigil underway around 3:30 p.m. “We came out here to pray,” the Rev. Daryl Lobban, the diocese’s missioner for justice and advocacy, told Episcopal News Service by phone. “The military was set up almost right in front of our church.”Some “peacekeeper clergy” stood between the security forces and the protesters, and other clergy leaders arrived together, according to Sojourners’ Twitter thread from the scene. Because the protesters and vigil attendees both were pushed north by the security perimeter, news reporters converged on that site, with dozens of cameras pointing at Budde and the other clergy leaders, Lobban said.While Budde tried to speak, some protesters began yelling that the bishop didn’t speak for them, according to the WAMU reporter, Mikaela Lefrak. Budde then sat down to talk to some of the protesters individually. “Vigil has now turned into debate between clergy and some protesters about who should be focus of this protest,” Lefrak said.

They felt the vigil was taking the focus off the protest, said the Rev. Paula Clark, the diocese’s canon to the ordinary.“We felt the need to interact and talk with them,” Clark told ENS, and she said those interactions helped diffuse the tension. “We came out in the same place, and that’s when we had prayer together, all of us with a great, ‘Amen.’”Clergy continue to gather in a circle and pray in the midst of the crowd. #SolidarityPrayerVigilDC pic.twitter.com/vTFUZFDHaF— SojoAction (@SojoAction) June 3, 2020After praying together, Budde and the other clergy members left the area. “It did not go as planned, but the Holy Spirit was still moving,” Clark said.The Rev. Melanie Mullen, who attended the event, said the government’s restrictions on movement were mostly to blame for disrupting plans for the vigil, making it difficult for some of the participants to reach the revised location.“We have really seen what it’s like when the entire force of the government and the military and the state come out against religious freedom,” Mullen, The Episcopal Church’s director of reconciliation, justice and creation care, told ENS.Trump photo op at church followed minor arson fireSt. John’s had sustained minor damage from a fire May 31 as peaceful protests in the nation’s capital and in other cities were marred in some cases by property destruction.On the evening of June 1, Trump addressed reporters in the White House’s Rose Garden, declaring himself both “your president of law and order” and “an ally of all peaceful protesters.” At about that time, under the order of Attorney General William Barr to clear the area, officers from the U.S. Park Police and other assisting law enforcement agencies, outfitted in riot gear, began pushing back protesters who had amassed outside the White House and in Lafayette Square across from St. John’s. Reports indicate the protest there had been peaceful, and protesters were not yet in violation of the city’s 7 p.m. curfew.At least one Episcopal priest was among those who fled the scene when police began using smoke and what eyewitnesses said was some sort of tear gas on the crowd, as well as flash-bang grenades. At least 20 priests and a group of laypeople had been ministering to protesters throughout the day as “a peaceful presence” in support of the demonstrations.U.S. Park Police denied using tear gas on protesters, though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a range of “riot control agents,” like the smoke canisters and pepper balls used by federal authorities, are commonly referred to as “tear gas.”President Donald Trump holds a Bible as he stands outside St. John’s Episcopal Church, across from the White House, in Washington, D.C., on June 1, 2020. Photo: Patrick Semansky/APWith the square cleared, Secret Service agents and White House officials then escorted Trump to St. John’s, where he was handed a Bible and posed briefly for journalists while video footage showed him giving only a cursory glance at the boarded-up church. The visit lasted about 3 minutes. Trump called some of his aides, including Barr, to pose by his side before he left to return to the White House.Read full ENS coverage of reaction to George Floyd’s killing.The show of force and the president’s photo op have been criticized by Capitol Hill lawmakers from both parties. “There is a fundamental — a constitutional — right to protest, and I’m against clearing out a peaceful protest for a photo op that treats the word of God as a political prop,” Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican, said.Trump on June 3 defended the visit to St. John’s in an interview with Fox News Radio, adding he wasn’t aware how the square was cleared before he arrived.“It was very fast. I think it was very symbolic. I did hold up a Bible. I think that’s a good thing, not a bad thing, and many religious leaders loved it,” Trump told host Brian Kilmeade. “Why wouldn’t they love it? I’m standing in front of a church that went through trauma.”Budde said in several news interviews that she and other church leaders were never notified that Trump intended to visit the church, and he did so in a way that she and other leaders say ran counter to Christian teachings, in effect using the church and a Bible as political props.“He used violent means to ask to be escorted across the park into the courtyard of the church,” Budde told NPR on June 2, emphasizing that Trump didn’t come to pray.“He did not offer a word of balm or condolence to those who are grieving. He did not seek to unify the country, but rather he used our symbols and our sacred space as a way to reinforce a message that is antithetical to everything that the person of Jesus, whom we follow, and the Gospel texts that we strive to emulate … represent.”The 204-year-old St. John’s is known as the “church of presidents” because every president since James Madison has attended a service there. Trump attended a worship service there on his inauguration day, Jan. 20, 2017, and at least two more times during his presidency, according to USA Today.Curry, in a written statement, accused Trump on June 1 of using the church and the Bible for “partisan political purposes.”“We need our president, and all who hold office, to be moral leaders who help us to be a people and nation living these values,” Curry said. “For the sake of George Floyd, for all who have wrongly suffered, and for the sake of us all, we need leaders to help us to be ‘one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.’”Since the incident, St. John’s has continued to offer support for the protesters gathered outside the White House while promoting a daily time of prayer and witness in the four hours leading up to each day’s overnight curfew.“We in the Diocese of Washington follow Jesus in his way of love. We aspire to be people of peace and advocates of justice,” Budde said in the diocese’s news release announcing the vigil. “In faithfulness to our savior who lived a life of non-violence and sacrificial love, we align ourselves with those seeking justice for the death of George Floyd and countless others through the sacred act of peaceful protest.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The impromptu visit caught Budde and the church’s rector by surprise.Late June 2, the diocese began promoting a solidarity prayer vigil to be held in the courtyard outside St. John’s, which is just north of the White House across the street from Lafayette Square. A news release said Episcopal clergy would be joined by leaders from the United Methodist Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute and the Washington Mayor’s Office of Religious Affairs, as well as the Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners.But by June 3, law enforcement agencies had extended the security perimeter around the White House beyond St. John’s, blocking the public from accessing the church and forcing the diocese to move its event about a block north to the intersection of 16th and I streets.

Alonzo Williams Park getting a new community center

first_img Apopka Receives $750,000 Federal Grant  Alonzo Williams Park is getting a new community center building, thanks to a newly awarded $750,000 federal grant presented through the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.The 5,500 square foot center will be twice as large as the current building.The long-awaited project will demolish the existing structure at Alonzo Williams Park, 515 South Hawthorne Avenue, and construct a new community center in its place. The new building will be twice the size of the existing facility with more than 5,500 square feet, and feature a large meeting area, offices, activity rooms and a covered entry with a vehicle driveway. It will also include paved parking along M.A. Board Street and future parking adjacent to the facility.“Thank you Team Apopka! More than a dozen dedicated staff members who work for the City of Apopka collaborated to pursue this grant opportunity, and I am grateful for their hard work,” Mayor Joe Kilsheimer said. “Alonzo Williams Park has the potential to serve many purposes for Apopka residents, from organized after-school programs to pick-up games of soccer and basketball. The new community center will enrich everyone’s experience and serve its surrounding neighborhoods for many years to come.”The federal grant is administered by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, which provides between $18 and $26 million in federal funds each year to benefit local governments.Construction of the new facility could begin next year, according to a press release from the City of Apopka.Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, President of the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance, was ecstatic with the outcome and commended the City for its perseverance.“I would like to congratulate the City of Apopka for not giving up,” said Bradford. ” (City Administrator) Glenn Irby and his staff are to be commended. This is really going to be a major plus for South Apopka. Hopefully citywide events can be held at this location after the new community center is completed.”Apopka businessman Rod Love believes it is a great first step, but it will take the people of Apopka to tap its full potential.“The $750,000 State of Florida award for the renovations of Alonzo Williams park is great news for the residents of the community of Apopka,” said Love, the co-chairman of the Community Task Force on Violence. “Bricks and mortar will set the tone for the foundation, what strengthens it must be a total community effort, working with the City of Apopka, law enforcement, faith and community leaders, but most importantly, working with the people of the community to ensure maximum utilization of this facility.”Alonzo Williams is a three-acre facility with multi-purpose fields, outdoor basketball courts, a softball field and a playground. Earlier this year, it also received a separate $50,000 grant through the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program to improve its recreation areas.

Court Of Today In the bustling heart of Nijmegen, close to the historic inner city, lies St. Joseph Court. The court has a rich past. It was here, shortly before the Christian era, that the settlement of Oppidum Batavorum, the predecessor of present Nijmegen, arose. The oldest remains discovered in the court are of a Roman building dating from about 40 A.D., making it the Netherlands’ oldest stone building. The St. Joseph Court school stood here from the twentieth century, until it was demolished in the 1970s. The resulting ‘gap’ in the buildings was not filled in and the court became a parking lot. Now the court has been restored to its previous glory and transformed into the Court of Today. Save this picture!© Christian RichtersRecommended ProductsCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD19Corporate ApplicationsULMA Architectural SolutionsPolymer Concrete Facade in UniEléctricaWoodEGGERTimberCommunal Gardens Mecanoo’s scheme fits in with the pattern of streets of the historical inner city. Around a public court lie 98 dwellings, some of them with a garden and others in the form of apartments. Three communal gardens at the edges of the court form a link between the existing buildings and the new dwellings. The gardens differ in form and appearance and are only accessible for the residents. In the middle of the court is an attractive courtyard, open to both residents and passers by, where children can play in safety. Under the court is a two-storey car park for the residents. Glass peep holes in the ramp offer views of the archaeological discoveries in the St. Joseph Court.Save this picture!© Christian RichtersCircuit The architecture of the Court of Today is contemporary, yet in keeping with the inner city. It was decided to create separate facades instead of solid volumes. The bricks, fired in a traditional round kiln in the neighbourhood of Nijmegen, have different shapes and tints, so that each of the dwellings has a different character. The rhythmically staggered facades have different widths. There is also an abundance of variety in the windows, including high windows spanning two floors and smaller windows scattered across the facades, which means that the interiors of the dwellings are laid out differently. One surprising element is the footbridge connecting the dwellings. By forming a circuit going along the various gardens and places, an exciting route is created at an elevated level.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessMUSE / Renzo Piano Building WorkshopSelected ProjectsFish market in Bergen / Eder Biesel ArkitekterSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Sint Josephhof, 6511 Nijmegen, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 17, 2016 Facebook Twitter SHARE A report to the Farm Credit Administration shows an overall negative profit outlook for 2016. The Farm Credit board received a report on the 2016 profit outlook last week and found the outlook is negative for corn and wheat and is near the break-even point for soybeans. The forecast was based on data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and university estimates of production costs. Farm Credit says large supplies are pushing down farm prices for corn and wheat, while soybean prices are expected to be near last year’s average because of a less bearish global stock situation. For the farmer’s bottom line, a modest reduction in production costs is offsetting some of the price-depressing effects.Still, Farm Credit says many producers will need to make adjustments by controlling their input costs, selling crops when pricing opportunities arise and cutting household living expenses.

This insinuation was clearly intended to cause damage to the president and his government and to attract sympathy for this press group, Kimunya said.————————-03.03.2006 Standard journalists charged and released on bailTwo editors and a journalist on The Standard were charged on 2 March with “publishing false rumours with the intention of panicking the public”.Managing editor Chaacha Mwita, who is responsible for the weekend pages, editor Dennis Onyango, and journalist Ayub Savula, were then released on bail of 50,000 shillings (580 euros).They were charged in connection with an article which reported that President Mwai Kibaki had held a secret meeting with former environment minister, Kalonzo Musyoka. Their trial has been set for 24 April. They face a possible three years in prison.——————————02.03.2006 Government orders police raid on HQ of KTN and The StandardReporters Without Borders said it was disgusted by a show of force by armed Kenyan police who raided the HQ of The Standard press group on 2 March. This followed the arrest of three of the daily’s journalists two days earlier.Police, brandishing AK-47 assault weapons made simultaneous raids at 1am on the HQ of KTN television and the offices of the Standard printers in the capital Nairobi’s industrial area.They created panic at the TV station where they assaulted the guards and caused serious damage, putting it off the air until the afternoon of the following day. They seized control of the video production unit where they ordered staff to lie on the floor. They snatched transmission equipment and a number of computers and arrested four staff, who were quickly released.At the same time police seized copies of the 2 March edition of the Standard newspaper from the printers and set fire to them.“This police operation is completely unacceptable”, said Reporters Without Borders. “These methods are unworthy of a democracy. The journalists who have been detained should immediately be released and the authorities should explain themselves over this attack”.“If the government has a quarrel with the media that’s one thing, but nothing can justify this brutal police raid,” the press freedom organisation said. Internal Security Minister, John Michuki, acknowledged that he had ordered the police operation.———————————01.03.2006 Three journalists on Standard arrested amidst worries about growing government belligerenceReporters Without Borders has sent a strong protest to the Kenyan authorities after three journalists from the daily The Standard were arrested on 28 February accused of “fabricating” news about President Mwai Kibaki.”The volatility of political life in Kenya, since the defeat of the presidential camp in the constitutional referendum is leading to more and more damaging consequences for the press,” said the press freedom organisation.Managing editor Chaacha Mwita, editor Dennis Onyango and journalist Ayub Savula, are being held at a police station in Kileleshwa, Nairobi. They were arrested after presenting themselves at the capital’s central police station after receiving summonses the previous evening from the head of criminal investigations, Dunson Ndiru. Police spent a large part of the day watching The Standard’s offices.The three arrests came after an article appeared in the weekend edition on 25 February, referring to a meeting two days earlier between President Kibaki and former environment minister, Kalonzo Musyoka, to discuss a possible political alliance. Musyoka left the government in November last year and campaigned, with the opposition, against the constitutional project proposed by the head of state. The press offices of the president and of Musyoka denied that such a meeting took place. These denials were carried by The Standard, which also reported its suspicions of a political plot on the part of the coalition to which Musyoka belongs, intended to discredit him.Despite this, government spokesman, Alfred Mutua, accused the newspaper of lack of probity and having knowingly published false news. He sent The Standard a letter asking it to retract and to publish an apology for having impugned the president’s integrity.“We are disturbed by the growing belligerence of the government,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call for the release of the detained journalists and for an end to methods that are unworthy of a great democracy. It is high time that the Nairobi authorities understand that imprisoning a journalist solves nothing and does not put right any wrong.” Follow the news on Kenya March 9, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The Standard and KTN denied access to finance ministry in reprisal for interview coverage Organisation Newslast_img read more
