NOT FOR FEATURED Sing song: Lancaster wants to win over England fansLancaster is keen to deflect attention and praise away from himself, pointing instead to the players, but reconnecting with England’s supporters is a key goal for him in the build-up to the home World Cup in three years. A lot of fans lost faith during the last World Cup and the fallout from it, but a rejuvenated atmosphere at Twickenham for the Wales and Ireland games suggests that Lancaster and his team are heading in the right direction.“Ultimately it’s not about me, it’s about the team and the connection between the team and the English public,” says Lancaster. “There are 3,000 clubs and schools that play rugby, 82,000 people watching us at Twickenham, 10m people watching the Ireland game and there are 51m people in England. England is a country that gets behind its team – no nation in the world does that better than England. We want those 51m people to all feel part of the team.”Some commentators have suggested that Lancaster is too inexperienced to take on such a senior role in Test rugby, but RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie was quick to insist that England have found the best man for the job. Let’s shake on it: new England coach Stuart Lancaster poses with RFU chief executive Ian RitchieBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorSTUART LANCASTER has revealed his plan for the future now he has been given the England head coach role on a permanent basis.Lancaster, who guided England to second place in the recent Six Nations having won four matches out of five, has a three-step plan for the national squad now he has been given the reins until January 2016.“There are three things I’d like to bring to the team,” said Lancaster on the day of his appointment. “The first is pride in wearing the shirt and a connection that people and players resonate with.“The second is a vision for the future and a vision to win the 2015 World Cup. The third is to create an environment where the players play without fear. I want them to have the opportunity to express themselves on the world stage.“The players are committed to that. We had a fantastic Six Nations and achieved a huge amount – and there is still a huge amount to do. The players are committed to that journey and are excited about that journey.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “I don’t see it as a gamble,” said Ritchie. “Stuart was given this job on merit. He was up against strong competition and we had a number of interested candidates – that was why we went through such an extensive process. He ticks all the boxes that we need and he’s the best coach for the senior England XV.”Lancaster’s next challenge is to appoint his support staff. Graham Rowntree, already employed by the RFU, is likely to remain as forwards coach, but it will be more tricky to secure Andy Farrell from Saracens. No decisions have yet been made, but Lancaster will want his back-room team in place in time for the June tour to South Africa, where they play three Tests against the Springboks and two midweek games.

Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Comments (12) Rector Bath, NC Submit a Job Listing March 15, 2012 at 5:15 am I do not see any conflict between towing the car or any other form of holding an errant person accountable and forgiveness. What is forgiveness anyway? Is it excusing bad or inappropriate behavior. A man has raped a woman. She might in her heart find it appropriate to forgive him, but can she not also seek his prosecution and incarceration? Where is the conflict? Rector Shreveport, LA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA March 16, 2012 at 10:46 am Thanks for the article, Dan. Forgiveness is such a difficult concept, even for religious people, and it’s interesting to think about the difference between expecting forgiveness and deserving it. I actually just finished a wonderful book called “Forgiving the Unforgivable,” by Master Charles Cannon, that deals with the difficulties of forgiving and accepting others. It’s a thought-provoking book that anyone struggling with learning when and how to forgive might benefit from. Thanks again for the post!

Director of Music Morristown, NJ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI March 15, 2012 at 9:40 am “Forgive them, Father, they know not what they do…” was said from the cross. Yes, Jesus forgave all of us during his suffering and did not ask the Roman soldiers, or any of us as far as I know, to change before he forgave us.However, I agree that many church members presume forgiveness from us while omitting promises to help us or carry out what they promise. I actually miss the “reconciliation” process that asks us to examine our consciences and make amends to those we have hurt (and this takes admitting it) and being forgiven by hearing the words “you are forgiven.” I remember as children, my Catholic husband always took the children aside before they fell asleep and forgave them for anything they had done wrong during the day which I thought was a beautiful expression of the Father’s forgiveness through his Son.Peace be with you.

We do seem to want “fairness,” as seen in Joseph’s brothers’ fear that his forgiveness would not last beyond their father’s death; Joseph was way beyond that, as God is. But remember, lack of forgiveness is far more damaging to the injured party than to the one at fault, especially in cases like Dan and the parked truck. And forgiveness never dismisses the seriousness of the fault or crime; but it always paves the way for grace and healing. John Kirk says: Curate Diocese of Nebraska March 14, 2012 at 11:18 pm Good article Dan.

I was tired and once again, I had to deal with the big black Ford Bronco parked in the seminary parking space behind the house where I lived. Notes had been left on this truck before by the Seminary of the Southwest staff. Time to have it towed.As it dangled on the back of the tow truck, a student from the nearby University of Texas came running up to me yelling, “What are you doing? You can’t do that.”“You’ve been warned repeatedly,” I said.“You’re supposed to forgive! That’s your job.”He presumed that routinely ignoring the rules and warnings would be routinely forgiven because we were a church institution. He may or may not have been a church member, but his idea of presumptive forgiveness has stuck out in my memory.That was 17 years ago. Since then, as a member, curate, rector, diocesan staffer, I’ve had many opportunities to observe the behavior of church members. It’s not something anyone can prove, but I suspect my parking scofflaw neighbor may be more like church folk than I realized. There seems to be an unspoken doctrine of presumptive forgiveness in the church.I’ve seen it time and time again. Folks agreeing to take on ministries or tasks in the parish or on diocesan committees, and then failing to follow through. This can be as simple as chronically late arrivals or early departures from meetings.In some cases it’s much worse and in nearly every parish I’ve served, what would elsewhere be considered unacceptable behavior is excused. “Oh, that’s just Bunny. She’s always like that.” Or, “We put up with Thornton because that’s just his way.”Whenever I ask why folks tolerate such behavior, they usually say it’s because we’re supposed to do so in a Christian community. A few might even cite Jesus’ words to Peter about forgiving 70 times seven.During this season of Lent we hear a lot about forgiveness. But most sermons will also include how repentance and amending behavior must happen before forgiveness can be offered. So why aren’t we calling one another to a higher standard – one of repentance – when facing behavior that repeatedly undermines the work of vestries, committees, boards and councils?A senior consultant from the Alban Institute recently told me about a newer church member complaining to a longtime member about certain situations in that church. The longtime member stopped the complainer. “We don’t talk like that here,” she said. “We have a process set up that allows you to direct your complaints through proper channels. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’d like to pray before the service begins.” The newcomer was being instructed on the culture of that community. It was a healthy response to potentially divisive behavior.We need to have clear boundaries and expectations of one another. We need to be as clear as Jesus when he challenged Peter about blocking his mission, saying, “Get behind me, Satan.” We need to adopt norms for behavior that honors the mission of the entire faith community and call us to be church to one another.Wardens and vestry members, committee and commission members need clear job descriptions that support the mission and vision of the church. We need to hold our sisters and brothers accountable to a standard of discipleship that builds up the Body of Christ.This may not be easy and often it is not, but we owe this strong sense of leadership to all members who deserve the church to be as healthy as we can make it for God’s sake.— The Rev. Canon Dan Webster is the canon for evangelism and ministry development in the Diocese of Maryland. He lives in Baltimore. An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME March 18, 2012 at 11:44 pm A provoking message, though 17 years is a bit long to hold on to such a minor misdeed, though repeated with frequency. Forgiveness is the highest form of grace that we can attain. You may not forgive the sin, but you must forgive the sinner – this will lead to spiritiual healing. What we hold bound, as sin, binds us as well to that sin as we sit in judgement of our neighbor. As far as behavior, we usually have ample opportunity to observe our neighbors in our gathering of spiritual fellowship; if one is frequently tardy or absent they may not be the best choice for office of responsibility. A friend once asked me, “If Christ was crucifed and died for the sins of mankind, who must I kill to gain forgiveness?” Think about it…forgiveness is such a large thing to ask (repentance) and a small thing to give. Many I know would think it foolish to forgive a sin over and over, but God calls us to walk in His way. Love God. Love thy neighbor as thyself. Rather sums it all up.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Albany, NY Kim Hardy says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY March 16, 2012 at 6:14 pm This would be amusing if it weren’t so sad! The Episcopal Church has dramatically altered the paradigm of sexual morality to the point that it not only permits gay “marriage,” but is coming up with a way to bless it, and you’re concerned that Skip keeps trotting in late to the vestry meeting and Muffy forgot, again, to make the canapes for the altar guild meeting?!?!? Presumptive forgiveness isn’t necessary, Rev. Webster, or any other kind of forgiveness, when we diminish, errode or come near to eliminating, any concept of sin. If something regarded these thousands of years in the Judeo-Christian tradition as wrong, repugnant, an abomination to God, a sin that cries out to Heaven, can now be celebrated and blessed with rite and ritual, then what’s a little tardiness, a little habitual absent-mindedness, among friends? If you have a “priest” that comes out and says that abortion is a blessing, wouldn’t it be a tad ironic for that “priest” to come over all Cotton Mather-ish regarding one’s obligation to show up and flip pancakes on Shrove Tuesday night?On the other hand, kudos for believing in Satan…if that is what one should construe from your citation of the Holy One’s rebuke of him in the Gospels.

Working on new elements in parallel with the existing ones, we optimize materials to solve structural problems, always looking for conscious choices. Save this picture!© Carolina LacazSave this picture!Office PlanSave this picture!© Carolina LacazThat is why we have chosen materials like concrete block, which in addition to the material and aesthetic aspect, was also a solution to reinforce the structure of walls that were compromised. The floor is a long-lasting solution in natural stone, which creates thickness in contact with the ground and costs less than industrial coatings, in addition to the touch of texture and breaking of the orthogonal lines of the bookcase and concrete blocks. Save this picture!© Carolina LacazWe also have examples of optimizations, such as the existing rack that was incorporated in the new bookcase in the room, the dining table that had only the top renovated, we also have the roof of the living room maintained and redesigned with painting, an element that through color gains importance and meaning in space.

RSF_en October 20, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Middle East & North Africa WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Region performs poorly, Israel nose-dives—–Israel cast down by Operation Cast LeadThis is the first time that Israel (internal) is not at the head of the Middle Eastern countries in the press freedom index. By falling 47 places to 93rd position, it is now behind Kuwait (60th), United Arab Emirates (86th) and Lebanon (61st). Arrests of journalists (and not only foreign ones), their conviction and in some cases their deportation are the reasons for Israel’s nose-dive. Israel’s media are outspoken and investigate sensitive subjects thoroughly, but military censorship is still in force.Like the United States, Israel has a separate ranking for activities outside its own territory. Israel (extraterritorial) also fell, to 150th position, as a result of its offensive against the Gaza Strip, Operation Cast Lead, in which the Israeli military bombarded buildings housing Palestinian news media. Foreign and Israeli media were denied access to the Gaza Strip throughout the offensive.Iran at gates of infernal trioIran (172nd) now stands at the threshold of the infernal trio of countries at the very bottom of the index after a major deterioration in its press freedom situation marked by blogger Omidreza Mirsayafi’s death in Evin prison, Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi’s arrest and the crackdown in the wake of President Mahmoud Ahmadinedjad’s disputed reelection in June. Many journalists were arrested and a Stalinist-style show trial began in Tehran in which the most basic rights of the defendants are still being flouted.Yemen (167th) continued to sink towards the bottom of the rankings. Journalists pay for the government’s scorched-earth policies towards any form of separatism, not only in the north against the Zaydi rebels but also in the south. The Saleh government has drastically curtailed freedom of expression since May, imposing a news blackout on its military operations.A similar downward trend continued in Syria (165th). Although there was less recourse to physical violence against journalists, the situation was very worrying, with repression steadily tightening its grip and closing off the remaining areas of freedom available to the independent and opposition media.Although Libya (156th) rose a few positions in the rankings, its already limited tolerance of free expression suffered setbacks this year. The import of Arab and other foreign publications was permitted, but two privately-owned publications created in 2007 by Al-Ghad, a company owned by Muammar Gaddafi’s son Seif Al-Islam, were nationalised and the Al-Libya TV station’s bureaux were closed.The situation of journalists in Iraq (145th) has evolved inasmuch as the problem is no longer the same. Instead of targeted threats from militias or terrorist groups, Iraqi journalists now have to cope with hostility from officials and politicians who deny the media access to certain areas. Abusive prosecutions and defamation actions against newspapers that expose corruption are now common. Even supposedly pro-government media are not spared.The run-up to major elections was marked by greater hostility towards journalists in the Maghreb. There was an increase in prosecutions of news media in Algeria (141st) while President Ben Ali’s regime stepped up its suppression of all independent journalism in Tunisia (154th).Morocco (127th) continued the fall that it began three years ago. The royal palace has become more vigilant about the “red lines” that the press must not cross but is changing the methods used to ensure respect. As with other regimes, financial reprisals are becoming the preferred weapon for use against journalists who go too far. Exorbitant damages awards now pose more of a threat to the Moroccan media that prison sentences.There was unfortunately little evolution in the Gulf states, where there is an almost complete absence of independent media. The ruling families have a monopoly of radio and TV and the printing and distribution of newspapers, and self-censorship is systematic.
