Michael Neal says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET [Episcopal Diocese of Washington] In an increasingly diverse western world, Christians often shy away from articulating our religious distinctives. We are appropriately aware of our history of forcing religion on others. Yet, in such a context this often leaves us the least compelling voice. And if we believe there is yet good news in the Christian message, than we ought to find our voice again. What if there was a way to talk about our faith that respected others while calling out the good news of God in the world?Several years ago, I was sitting in the small apartment of a Somali friend. We had become friends through the after school homework club for refugees I volunteered with. My friend was sharing with me the history of his people. He told me of long journeys from one part of Africa to another. He told me of his ancestors being enslaved and subjected to diaspora amongst morepowerful tribes. He shared what his ancestors did to keep their cultural distinctive alive while living amidst other cultures. I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between his cultural history and that of Israel found in the Old Testament. I shared this with him and this led to a conversation about the Jesus of the Gospels and the Isa of the Quran.The kind of evangelism that’s going to work in this day and age has a lot to do with stories. Stories are powerful things. They bind us together. They shape how we live our lives. But as I said before, evangelism begins with listening. We don’t earn the right to tell our stories without first listening to those of others. When we do this, we begin to see where our stories cross paths with others, just as it did with my refugee friend’s and my own. Consider the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at a well, or Paul and the people of Athens. Both Jesus and Paul find common ground as a starting point.We often think about evangelism as a debate; we start with what’s different and then attempt to convince another that we’re right. But what if evangelism was the term used to describe the conversation in which we acknowledge God showing up in our lives? One may think, “That’s much easier!” Yet, this approach still assumes that we are in relationship with others outside of our religious traditions and willing to talk about faith. If we are willing to do those things, I think you will discover that when we find common ground, we learn something about God we did not know before.Throughout the Old and New Testaments, it is the case that “the outsider” shapes the faith of “the insider.” As you read through the narrative of Scripture, you can see God’s people equally shaped by and shaping the faith of those around them. I hadn’t set out to convert my Muslim friend. But I think both of us were converted that day. We both learned something about a God much bigger than the limits our traditions. My friend learned more about Isa, Jesus, than he had known before. And I will never forget his curiosity as to why Christians’ lifestyles did not seem to reflect their faith. More on that in the next post.— Jason Evans is the young adult missioner for the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. His posts on evangelism will continue weekly throughout Advent 2012.

The student later complimented us for speaking from our Christian tradition without downplaying or disguising our differences; he said that he felt that other Christian places he had worshipped were dishonest, because they weren’t willing to engage the differences between the two religions.

This new three-storey building with attic was created in the garden city neighbourhood of Aarau. The house comprises seven small apartments. The polygonal building results from the plot form and forms the link between the adjacent multi-family and single-family homes. The apartments are accessed via a compact staircase. The floor plans are structured by wet cell boxes, cabinet and kitchen fixtures.Save this picture!© Andreas GraberSave this picture!Ground, first, second floorSave this picture!© Andreas GraberBy means of pendulum and sliding doors, the individual areas are zoned.

Lane closure on University Drive due to water main break

first_img Previous articleSGA pushes for a greener campus, one cup at a timeNext articleThe Leap: Celebrity March Madness Taylor Boser RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution printIt was a typical Sunday night for Elizabeth Gollihue, senior strategic communication major, when she experienced something unexpected on her weekly drive home from her sorority’s chapter meeting.“I was dropping off my friend at her house after chapter Sunday night and the streets were just completely flooded,” Gollihue said. “There were police cars, but I wasn’t sure exactly what had happened.”What happened was a main pipe burst near the intersection of University Drive and West Cantey Street Sunday night around 8:15, according to Fort Worth Water Department spokeswoman Mary Gugliuzza. This pipe was installed in 1936 and hadn’t burst since 2002.Fort Worth has more than 3,500 miles of water lines under streets and preventing the pipes from breaking is not guaranteed, Gugliuzza said.“We’ll never prevent main breaks,” Gugliuzza said. “At some point pipes break and for a whole variety of reasons.”The Fort Worth Water Department does not know the reason for this pipe bursting or when the street repairs will be fixed.With the flooding affecting Gollihue, she was frustrated with the absence of a notification from the Fort Worth Water Department.“It is an inconvenience for TCU students and then we don’t get any updates or even information on what is going on,” Gollihue said.The area where the flooding happened is being fixed by the Fort Worth Water Department. During this time, there will be only one lane open on University Drive heading in the direction of downtown Fort Worth.

2 Mississippi police officers fired after alleged police brutality incident

first_imgmoodboard/Thinkstock(LAUREL, Mississippi) — Two Mississippi police officers could be facing additional charges after they were terminated by the Laurel Police Department (LPD) for allegedly beating 36-year-old James Barnett last week.Barnett was pursued by officers after reaching a vehicle checkpoint and turning around in Jasper County. Following a short chase, Barnett was pulled over and the officers approached his car with their guns drawn, according to Barnett.Police told Barnett to get down on the ground and when he did, they began kicking him, Barnett said to ABC News.Barnett also claimed that he never fought back. The police then transported him to the South Central Regional Medical Center, where he was beaten more, Barnett claimed.The police charged him with five misdemeanors, including resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license. Barnett posted pictures of his alleged abuse on his Facebook page last week.“I’ve never been so afraid in my life,” Barnett wrote in the Facebook post. “I will not let this go, I don’t [want] this to happen to anyone else. There is no justice in what they did to me!! But I will get JUSTICE!!” The supervisor on duty realized that there was a problem with the arrest that occurred, according to the Laurel Police Department. The department’s Internal Affairs (IA) began investigating hours after the incident occurred and the next day the officers, who were not named, were fired.The police department has been in contact with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations (MBI) on the possibility of pressing additional charges against the involved officers.“The Officers and Administration of LPD take these types of allegations very seriously,” the Laurel Police Department said in a statement to ABC News. “It should be noted that the IA was initiated only hours after the incident occurred before any media attention, social media posts or even a formal complaint from the individual involved.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Confidence in equality of pay often misplaced

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Confidence in equality of pay often misplacedOn 21 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Nine outof 10 HR managers are certain that they pay their male and female staff fairlybut this confidence is often misplaced, the Equal Opportunities Commission hassaid.Earlyfindings of research on organisational pay practices commissioned by the EOCshow that public sector employers have the best record in ensuring that theirpay systems are not biased, but are the least confident. The EOC puts this downto a higher awareness of the barriers to be overcome.Manufacturingindustries were found to be the most complacent, regarding their pay systems asfair, although they had no evidence. Of the 301HR managers surveyed, 54 per cent were very confident and 39 per cent werefairly confident that their pay systems were fair. However, only 35 per centhad analysed basic pay by gender.Forty percent of HR managers, all from organisations with more than 200 employees, saidthey monitored the respective pay of men and women. In public sector companies,59 per cent carried out such monitoring, compared to 33 per cent in the servicesector and 27 per cent in manufacturing. The full report is due to be publishednext month.JulieMellor, chair of the EOC, said, “We need a concerted effort by allemployers in all sectors to speed up the pace of change. This research showsthat although some employers are taking steps to achieve gender equality inpay, many others are not doing enough and some are not doing anything.”TerryGerman, president of the Society of Chief Personnel Officers in LocalGovernment, said, “We are currently grappling with becoming single statusemployers, which means all employees are treated the same. This has thrown upsome issues of equal pay that are having to be addressed through jobdevelopment schemes.”Early nextyear the EOM’s Equal Pay task force will produce a comprehensive blueprint foraction for employers, unions and the Government.By Lisa Bratbylast_img read more
