Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the center’s services now are held on Zoom at 8:15 p.m. each Tuesday. Photo: Joe Pellicone[Episcopal News Service] Kathryn Ashworth’s quest for God led her from the Christianity of her upbringing to New Age spiritual practices to a deep engagement with yoga. Now the Pennsylvania resident finds herself moving back toward Christianity through the contemplative practices of the Center for Spiritual Imagination at the Diocese of Long Island’s Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City, New York.“Finding that there are contemplative practices that kind of blend these two systems … is fascinating to me, and in many ways it’s been healing because it’s unified two very important aspects of my life,” she said. “Just as I was eager to learn more about yoga, I’m eager to learn more about this and just take a deeper dive.”That’s exactly the kind of engagement the center’s founders hoped for when they officially launched it May 11 with a website and online opportunities for meditation, contemplative prayer and study of spiritual practices for difficult times.“What we’re seeing is a lot of people reaching out to us and saying, ‘I’ve been looking for this for decades,’” said the Very Rev. Michael Sniffen, cathedral dean. “In some ways, what we’re doing is very traditional. What we think is perhaps novel is that we’re bringing lots of threads together that have not been woven together in a way that makes sense in today’s world.”Those threads include a new model of monasticism; a focus on contemplative prayer; elements of Benedictine, Carmelite and Franciscan traditions; 12-step spirituality; and a commitment to justice.The Very Rev. Michael Sniffen, top right, cathedral dean and co-founder of the center and the Community of the Incarnation, teaches a workshop via Zoom on the spiritual practice of embracing compassion. Photo: Sharon SheridanSniffen and three other cathedral staff members formed a new nonresident monastic order – the Community of the Incarnation – based at the cathedral. After more than a year of discernment and planning, they launched the center to offer others the opportunity to learn about and experience contemplative spirituality with the community. This includes weekly contemplative prayer and teaching sessions, as well as morning prayer, compline and other cathedral worship services, all currently offered online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.As with traditional religious orders, the community offers levels of involvement, from an “exploring path,” where individuals may join public programs and liturgies, to a “participating path,” where they commit to spiritual direction and practices from the community’s rule of life, to the “vowed path,” where they explore the possibility of joining the community and ultimately making permanent vows.Members vow to commit to:a new monastic rhythm of life, including daily prayer practices and regular retreats;an ongoing conversion of life, including discernment within community, study, self-examination, adoption of the 12 steps, and meetings with a spiritual director and other counselors; andliving their spirituality “in the context of ‘hearing and responding to the cry of the poor and the cry of the earth,’” including “teaching contemplative prayer as a way of addressing spiritual impoverishment,” practicing works of mercy, advocating for change in unjust structures and “modeling an ethic of God’s kingdom.”Long Island Bishop Lawrence Provenzano is the community’s episcopal visitor and follows its rule of life. He traces the center’s origins from his first clergy conference 11 years ago when he invited fellow attendees to join him in a rule of life. The concept also stemmed from a focus on making the cathedral campus, which includes a theology school, into a diocesan model and resource for education, liturgy and spirituality, as well as an awareness that social action in a diverse diocese needed to “grow from deep prayer and a deep spirituality in the life of the diocese.”“We’re not just another nonprofit social service agency,” he said. “Our focus on justice ministry, on trying to teach and live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the midst of the communities we serve, has to come from our knowing the heart and mind of God.”Developing the center around the Community of the Incarnation “felt to me like we were putting everything in the right lineup,” he said. “We’re going to pray. We’re going to have a deep understanding of relationships of Jesus Christ. And from that we will act in the world.”The Rev. Adam Bucko is co-founder and director of the Center for Spiritual Imagination at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City, New York. Photo: Joe PelliconeUnlike in traditional monasticism, members need not leave their jobs or families to join the community. “New monasticism” responds to people’s longing to make the kind of commitment that traditional monastics made, “where everything in their life is connected to their spiritual quest for God, but at the same time they don’t want to leave the world,” said the Rev. Adam Bucko, the center’s director. “It’s open to people who are both married and single people … who want to make a serious commitment to God, who want to align all the aspects of their lives and bring that into prayer.”This means offering new monastic practices for both children and adults and ways for families to practice spirituality together, said the Rev. Morgan Ladd, community co-founder and cathedral sub-dean, who oversees intergenerational worship and spiritual formation programming.While located at an Episcopal cathedral, the center draws participants from various traditions.“We’re an Episcopal community and deeply rooted in our Anglican identity,” Sniffen said. “But because our teachings focus on Christian contemplation, it’s a natural point of ecumenical contact. We have partners from many traditions – lots of them Christian, but some of them not.”“For us,” he said, “it’s all about the connection between contemplation and just living. There is so much for us to learn across all of these traditions.”Experience in the 12-step recovery community showed community co-founder Kris Vieira that many people “are searching for meaning in their life and to the spiritual dimension of their life. They are longing for kind of a practical means of encountering that.” Vieira, who is the cathedral’s administrator and assistant to the dean, continued, “Part of what we’re organizing ourselves around is really encouraging a deeper experience of God and a deeper community to go on that journey with.”Pew research statistics showing the large number of religiously unaffiliated people received a lot of press coverage, she said. “Everyone was kind of bemoaning the younger people leaving the church in droves. But what we really have kind of honed in [on] is, it’s not so much that people don’t believe in a God or a higher power anymore, but they don’t really trust the institution to guide them to that.”Noted Bucko, “One of the things that I have observed primarily spending many years working with the group that now is called ‘spiritual but not religious’ is that so many … were essentially people who grew up Christian but who felt they needed to leave the church in order to actually develop a deeper connection with God.“They felt that there were simply no tools available” to achieve this when they went to church on Sunday, he said.That matches Ashworth’s story.“I wanted to experience God directly. I wanted to feel God in my heart in a way that I wasn’t finding at church,” said Ashworth. “Meditation is my main yoga practice, and it’s been a resource for me to learn how to connect to God from within and have a more intimate and direct experience with God.”The center’s contemplative prayer practices help her focus on her humanity in a different way as well as reconnect with her Christian roots, she said, adding that she doesn’t see either as a lesser path. Rather than yoga’s focus on breath awareness and mantra meditation, which involves tuning out other thoughts and feelings, contemplative prayer invites in your feelings and an awareness of where they reside in your body, she said.“I’m becoming more empathetic through this process. I think that when you can hold space for yourself more clearly and compassionately, you can hold space for others in a deeper and more compassionate way,” she said.She also is connecting to others at a scary and isolating time, she said. “It’s helping me get comfortable with processing my emotions.”Ashworth’s reengagement with Christianity has come through the Episcopal church and the cathedral’s center. But getting her and others to join the church is not the center’s mission.“I’m really not concerned about the numbers of people sitting in the pews on Sunday. I’m really concerned about our serving God’s people in the communities in which we have congregations,” Provenzano said. “What the Center for Spiritual Imagination is envisioning is an inclusion of people finding a deep sense of prayer and relationship with God, some of whom may want to become part of The Episcopal Church.”“That being said,” he added, “renewal within the church will happen because we are in fact becoming the church to the wider community. It will not be just focusing in on ourselves.”– The Rev. Sharon Sheridan Hausman is a priest in the Diocese of Newark and a freelance writer and editor.

On this day: The Challenger space shuttle explodes

first_img January 28, 2019 at 6:58 pm I remember that day very well. I was at home, and had been playing with my mixed collie/shepherd dog out in the backyard throwing sticks around, and she would go fetch them and want me to play tug of war with her. It was clear, sunny, but oh so cold! My next door neighbor, had let his water sprinkler run all night long to allow his oak tree in the front to ice over and freeze to entertain his children. That morning there was ice all over his tree, and his kids came out and played with the ice. I had turned on the tv later and heard the breaking news, but for some reason, I didn’t believe at the time, it was real. I then went out my back door, and soon saw the smoke trail, which was two-headed. I had my camera out earlier and made pictures of the iced over oak tree, but didn’t even think to get a shot of the smoke trail. The smoke trail lingered a very long time up there in the sky. It was very eerie, actually, but I never thought to get a picture. I still have the picture of the oak tree frozen, and I wrote on the back of the photo, that it was the day the space shuttle, the Challenger, exploded. Hard to believe it has been that long ago. I was fairly young then! On this day in history: January 28th, 1986From the History ChannelAt 11:38 a.m. EST, on January 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger lifts off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and Christa McAuliffe is on her way to becoming the first ordinary U.S. civilian to travel into space. McAuliffe, a 37-year-old high school social studies teacher from New Hampshire, won a competition that earned her a place among the seven-member crew of the Challenger. She underwent months of shuttle training but then, beginning January 23, was forced to wait six long days as the Challenger‘s launch countdown was repeatedly delayed because of weather and technical problems. Finally, on January 28, the shuttle lifted off.Seventy-three seconds later, hundreds on the ground, including Christa’s family, stared in disbelief as the shuttle broke up in a forking plume of smoke and fire. Millions more watched the wrenching tragedy unfold on live television. There were no survivors.In 1976, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) unveiled the world’s first reusable manned spacecraft, the Enterprise. Five years later, space flights of the shuttle began when Columbia traveled into space on a 54-hour mission. Launched by two solid-rocket boosters and an external tank, only the aircraft-like shuttle entered into orbit around Earth. When the mission was completed, the shuttle fired engines to reduce speed and, after descending through the atmosphere, landed like a glider. Early shuttles took satellite equipment into space and carried out various scientific experiments. The Challenger disaster was the first major shuttle accident.In the aftermath of the disaster, President Ronald Reagan appointed a special commission to determine what went wrong with Challenger and to develop future corrective measures. The presidential commission was headed by former secretary of state William Rogers and included former astronaut Neil Armstrong and former test pilot Chuck Yeager. The investigation determined that the disaster was caused by the failure of an “O-ring” seal in one of the two solid-fuel rockets. The elastic O-ring did not respond as expected because of the cold temperature at launch time, which began a chain of events that resulted in the massive loss. As a result, NASA did not send astronauts into space for more than two years as it redesigned a number of features of the space shuttle.In September 1988, space shuttle flights resumed with the successful launching of the Discovery. Since then, the space shuttle has carried out numerous important missions, such as the repair and maintenance of the Hubble Space Telescope and the construction of the International Space Station.On February 1, 2003, a second space-shuttle disaster rocked the United States when Columbia disintegrated upon reentry of the Earth’s atmosphere. All aboard were killed. Despite fears that the problems that downed Columbia had not been satisfactorily addressed, space-shuttle flights resumed on July 26, 2005, when Discovery was again put into orbit.

Matt Burke career recap and testimonial

first_imgTuesday Sep 2, 2008 Matt Burke career recap and testimonial A week ago, upon the announcement of his retirement, we featured a classic try by legendary Wallaby fullback Matt Burke. This week we thought it would be nice to follow up with this interesting snippet off the show Total Rugby. We get to see Burke and his Newcastle teamates at his testimonial cricket match, against the Western Force believe it or not. As on the rugby field, Burke oozes class in everything he does, and delivers a lovely square cut for four, but is then unfortunately caught out when going for the big one. The clip gives great insight into how he came up through the ranks, starting with Rugby Sevens alongside greats such as Campese and Lynagh. His rise to the Waratahs and the Wallabies followed shortly, and we get to hear from the man himself as he talks us through those special moments in his career. Playing in Newcastle for the past few years, Burke touches on his struggles with understanding the Geordie accent, and reflects on his time in the game he loves, and how being paid for it was simply a bonus. Oh, and he did take a wicket in the cricket too, as his gentle doddle of an offspinner bamboozled the Force batsman into thinking he could knock him out the park.

USDA Staffing Way Behind with Secretary’s Confirmation Crawl

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Staffing Way Behind with Secretary’s Confirmation Crawl SHARE SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 18, 2017 Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 19, 2017Next articleHAT Wednesday Morning Edition 4/19/2017 Andy Eubank USDA staffingThe Trump Administration could finally have a Secretary of Agriculture in place as early as next week when it goes before the Senate, but following former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue’s final confirmation there will be a lot of catching up to do. There isn’t expected to be much of a challenge for Perdue, but Jon Doggett at the National Corn Growers Association says there are hundreds of other politically appointed positions that must then be filled.“He will be one of the last if not the last cabinet secretary that will be confirmed, but the administration needs to name a deputy secretary, 7 under-secretaries, 2 assistant secretaries, and the list goes on and on,” Doggett said. “There’re about 15 positions at USDA that need to be named by the President and then confirmed by the Senate, and there is a total of about 240 USDA positions that are political positions that need to be named by the administration. Right now we have one, and that person has not yet been confirmed, so we’re way, way, way behind schedule.”Will some of those appointments be from Indiana leadership? Some think so, so we’ll closely watch the dominoes fall.The Perdue delay also has stalled talks concerning current farm bill programs and the next farm bill. Doggett says the sooner 2018 Farm Bill discussions get underway the better because negotiations could be the toughest for a farm bill yet.“There is a lot of need out there and we are going to be going into this situation where the government doesn’t have much money,” he said. “The federal debt is about an extra $4 trillion by the time we get to this next farm bill than when we were starting off the last farm bill, so it’s going to be tough to get the money to do this bill right. Risk management is the thing we hear over and over again from our members, and that is they need the ability to manage risk. That will be crop insurance and that would be either the ARC program or PLC program or something like those kinds of programs to be available for growers.”It remains to be seen how quickly the Trump Administration will move on filling out the Department of Agriculture roster once Perdue is confirmed.  His confirmation hearing before the Senate is slated for April 24th.

Iran must stop denying medical care to imprisoned journalists

first_img News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the appalling conditions in which journalists are detained in Iran and calls on the authorities to stop denying them medical attention. June 9, 2021 Find out more to go further RSF_en IranMiddle East – North Africa News January 21, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 Iran must stop denying medical care to imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Help by sharing this information Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Receive email alerts IranMiddle East – North Africa February 25, 2021 Find out more March 18, 2021 Find out more RSF is very concerned about the state of health of some of these detained journalists, and already wrote to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein on 14 March 2015 urging him to intercede.The victims include Hossien Ronaghi Malki, a citizen-journalist who has had several kidney operations. Originally arrested on 13 December 2010 and granted a medical parole on 18 June 2015 on bail of 1.4 billion toman (500,000 euros), he was recalled and reimprisoned yesterday to resume serving a 17-year sentence in defiance of medical advice. His life is now in danger.He should have been freed under article 134 of the Islamic criminal code (as amended in 2013), which stipulates that a defendant convicted on several criminal charges serves only the main sentence.Said Razavi Faghih, a journalist detained since 24 February 2014, should have been released on completing a one-year sentence in March 2015 but, at the end of a an unfair trial, he was given a new sentence of three and a half years in prison on charges of anti-government publicity and insulting Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Assembly of Experts.After undergoing a heart operation on 12 January 2015, he awoke in a pool of blood on his hospital bed and demanded to be returned to his cell in Rajaishahr prison. His brother said: “We alerted the judicial authorities about his alarming state of health on several occasions and, if anything happens to him, we will regard it as murder.”Narges Mohammadi, a journalist and spokesperson for the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, was arrested on 5 May 2015 to serve a six-year sentence in Tehran’s Evin prison, where she is not getting the medical care she needs. Her husband Taghi Rahmani, a fellow journalist now living in exile in France, said: “She does not have regular access to medicine. This could endanger her health.”She is supposed to be tried again on various charges including “cooperating with Islamic State,” but the trial has been postponed three times since June. In October she was taken to a Tehran hospital, where she spent ten days handcuffed to a bed before being returned to prison against the advice of her doctors. She has not been allowed to contact her husband or children.Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, a citizen-journalist with dual Iranian and British citizenship who is serving a five-year sentence, has fainted several times in her cell in the women’s wing of Evin prison. After falling as a result of one of these fits on 7 December, she was taken to the prison infirmary where a doctor found her condition to be “normal” and injected with a tranquilizer. The next day she had convulsions and lost consciousness. A neurologist said her fainting was due to a “drug prescription error by the infirmary” and requested her transfer to a specialized hospital. Prison officials refused, presumably to cover up the prison’s mistakes.“We point out that under articles 102 and 103 of Iran’s prison regulations, adopted by the judicial body that oversees the prison system, prison officials must provide detainees with any medical care they need,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran/Afghanistan desk.“And according to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran is party, depriving detainees of medical care constitutes a violation of the ban on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.” After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists News Follow the news on Iran Organisation Newslast_img read more
