Jésus a dit que : là où deux ou trois sont rassemblés en mon nom, je suis au milieu d’eux », a déclaré Michael Curry lors d’une interview avec Episcopal News Service à Shanghaï, en réponse à la question de savoir pourquoi il est important pour l’Église épiscopale de maintenir des liens étroits avec la Chine.« Le Nouveau Testament parle du corps du Christ et non de personnes du Christ. Lorsque nous parlons de l’Église une, sainte, catholique et apostolique, [nous parlons d’un] réseau mondial de personnes attachées à la relation avec Jésus Christ et, à travers lui, des uns avec les autres ».Lors d’un séjour en Asie et en Asie du Sud-Est en février, pour rendre visite aux églises de la Communion anglicane et au Diocèse épiscopal de Taïwan, Michael Curry s’est rendu en Chine à l’invitation du Conseil chrétien de Chine (CCC) et du Mouvement des Trois-Autonomies (TSPM). Il a assisté à des réunions à Pékin et à Shanghaï, au cours desquelles il a rencontré le ministre de l’Administration d’État pour les affaires religieuses (SARA), organe du gouvernement chinois qui supervise la pratique religieuse, et les dirigeants du CCC et du TSPM, dont Elder Fu Xianwei.Peter Ng, dirigeant de l’Église épiscopale pour l’Asie et le Pacifique, à présent à la retraite, le révérend Charles Robertson, chanoine de l’évêque primat pour le ministère au-delà de l’Église épiscopale, le révérend David Copley, directeur des partenariats mondiaux et du personnel des missions, Neva Rae Fox, responsable des relations publiques de l’église et Sharon Jones, assistante exécutive de l’évêque primat, ont accompagné l’Évêque Curry dans ce voyage du 15 au 27 février qui a également comporté des arrêts aux Philippines, à Hong Kong et à Taïwan.Le CCC et le TSPM constituent l’église protestante officielle réglementée par le gouvernement chinois. Les « Trois Autonomies » signifient autonomie, autosuffisance et auto-propagation. Le TSPM sert de liaison entre les églises et le gouvernement tandis que le CCC se concentre sur les affaires de l’église.SARA sert de passerelle entre la religion et le gouvernement central et coordonne les relations entre les religions pour les rendre toutes égales. Outre sa supervision du TSPM, SARA supervise également quatre autres groupes religieux réglementés : les musulmans, les catholiques romains, les bouddhistes et les taoistes.Au cours d’une réunion le 21 février au siège principal de SARA à Pékin, le ministre Wang Zuo’an a déclaré que le maintien de l’« harmonie religieuse » à mesure que les religions se développent est l’une des priorités de son ministère.Article complet en anglais Rector Hopkinsville, KY Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Press Release Service The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Collierville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Where such information? 1 COMMENT It is a general rule of civilized conversation to steer clear of two topics – politics and religion. But at First Baptist Sweetwater, they will take the brave step to merge the two at their three-day Come. Drink. Live! Conference this weekend.While the speakers that accepted invitations hold conservative views, Pastor Joel Breidenbaugh insists the conference isn’t endorsing candidates.“We’re not telling people who to vote for,” he said. “We are helping to inform them and motivate them to vote their values. We are laying out issues that are biblical and foundational.”Pastor Breidenbaugh has served as senior pastor at First Baptist Sweetwater since October 2008.Among the topics discussed this weekend will be religious liberty, immigration, life vs. choice and marriage.According to Breidenbaugh, Sweetwater puts on themed events every two years, but not always political in nature. In the past the topics were Apologetics, Building Your Family, defending your faith and international missions. He chose a political themed event for 2016, because it is an election year.“We hoped to time it just before the Florida Presidential Primary (which is March 15th).”Among the speakers are attorneys, authors and a member of the Florida House of Representatives. Some are local and others nationally known.Russell Moore is President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the moral concerns and public policy entity of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. He is a frequent cultural commentator, an ethicist and theologian by background, and an ordained Southern Baptist minister. Moore is author of several books, including Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel.Mat Staver is the Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel and also serves as Vice President of Liberty University, Professor of Law at Liberty University School of Law, and Chairman of Liberty Counsel Action. Mat holds Bachelor, Master, and Juris Doctorate degrees and an honorary Doctorate of Laws and a Doctorate of Divinity. His most recent book is Eternal Vigilance: Knowing and Protecting Your Religious Freedom. As a former pastor and constitutional attorney, Mat produces and hosts Faith & Freedom, a 15-minute daily radio program and Freedom’s Call, a 90-second daily radio program. More about Liberty Counsel can be found here.Representative Jennifer Sullivan was born and raised in Central Florida and is the granddaughter of founding First Baptist Sweetwater member, Jane Yeackle. Sullivan is a member of the Lake County Republican Executive Committee and sits on the Executive Board. With her extensive grassroots involvement and leadership development skills, Jennifer at 23, became the youngest woman elected to the Florida Legislature. Seven of the eight bills she sponsored during her first legislative session became law, including a law requiring an abortion provider to meet with a woman seeking an abortion for a consultation appointment at least 24 hours prior to her procedureJohn Stemberger is an Orlando attorney who has been an advocate for life, marriage and family for over 30 years. Stemberger became the President of the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) in 2004. Since then he led the successful campaign to amend Florida’s Constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, adopted by 61.9% of Florida voters in 2008. In 2009 Stemberger received international media attention for representing Rifqa Bary, the Muslim teenager from Columbus, Ohio, who fled to Florida after she was threatened to be killed for not renouncing her faith after her conversion from Islam to Christianity was discovered. More about FFPC can be found here.The conference is on Friday and Saturday from 6:30-8:30 PM and on Sunday from 9:00 AM-Noon.

Both worry about paying for college. With the constantly rising costs of higher education, financial aid becomes more important than ever for making the dream of a college education possible. So if you’re interested in receiving financial aid, where should you start?“The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is your gateway to money for college from both the federal and state governments for most colleges and universities,” says Mark Kantrowitz, author of “Filing the FAFSA” and “Secrets to Winning a Scholarship.” “Filing the FAFSA correctly is crucial, as it has a direct effect on how much money you receive from various types of financial aid.”College Ave Student Loans partnered with Kantrowitz to offer top tips for maximizing your need-based financial aid for college:1. Save strategicallyWhen it comes to covering the cost of college, financial aid should be at the forefront of your mind, whether you’re ready to file the FAFSA right now or not. It’s best to save money for college in a parent’s name, rather than the student’s, as the FAFSA assesses money in the parent’s name at a much lower rate. Every $10,000 in student assets reduces aid eligibility by $2,000, while every $10,000 in parent assets only reduces eligibility by up to $564.2. File earlyThe earlier you file the FAFSA, the better. Right now, you should file the FAFSA as soon as possible on or after Jan. 1, but starting in 2017, you can start as early as Oct. 1. Ten states award aid on a first come, first served basis, and 12 have hard deadlines in February and March. Specific schools can also have specific deadlines, and students who file early may qualify for more aid. So, as a rule of thumb, file the FAFSA in January to maximize your eligibility.3. Minimize income in the base yearUsing income and tax information from a previous year, or base year, the FAFSA calculates the financial strength of your family. Because the formula is heavily weighted on income, it’s a good idea to reduce your income in the base year. If you can, avoid realizing capital gains. If you must sell stocks, bonds or other investments, try to offset capital gains with losses. Taking retirement plan distributions during the base year will also count as income.4. Reduce reportable assetsMinimize your money in the bank by using it to pay credit card and loan debts. This not only makes good financial planning sense, but may help you qualify for more aid.5. Maximize the number of children in college at the same timeSomething as simple as having more than one child in college can dramatically increase your changes of receiving more financial aid. While you can’t change the ages of your children, you can use this impact on aid eligibility as a deciding factor when determining whether to allow your child to skip a grade.6. Seek generous and low-cost collegesThere are many generous colleges, including some in the Ivy League, which implement “no loans” financial aid policies. This means they replace loans with grants in the student’s need-based financial aid package. Additionally, in-state public colleges are likely to be your least expensive option, especially after subtracting gift aid, grants and scholarships.7. Organize your documents and informationFiling the FAFSA is all about the details. Pay attention and stay organized to get the job done right, starting by filing the FAFSA for the correct year and staying on top of deadlines. Make sure to use the right Social Security Number, date or birth, marital status and correct financial information. Follow the instructions and fill out the forms as carefully as possible to get the most accurate results.Once you receive your financial aid award letter and assess your savings, you’ll have time to consider taking out a loan. If you need it, find a simple option that works for you, such as College Ave Student Loans.Navigating the world of financial aid can be tricky, so follow these tips to maximize your eligibility and make college a reality.

The organization also cautions against any reprisals and score-settling as a result if media allegations during the campaign about the two presidential front-runners, Horacio Cartes of the conservative right-wing Partido Colorado and Efraín Alegre of the liberal right-wing Partido Liberal Radical Auténtico.“These elections will not suffice to erase the consequences of President Fernando Lugo’s removal in a parliamentary coup in June 2012 and its impact on freedom of information and the country’s ability to hold a public debate,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This has been seen during the campaign in the way TV Pública and another national TV station refused to carry a spot produced by Frente Guasu, the former president’s coalition. New media regulations are needed more than ever in order to limit conflicts of interest and ensure that all sectors of opinion are represented. Community radios must also be guaranteed a place.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Paraguay continues to be a dangerous country for journalists, in part because of the links between politics and organized crime, which were widely criticized during the campaign. What guarantees of safety and freedom of action will there be for journalists who are exposed to the possibility of reprisals after the election? This is a matter of real concern, one that needs to be addressed by those who win the election.”The principle that radio and TV broadcasters should provide a “public service” during an election campaign suffered a major blow when two TV stations – privately-owned Canal 9 SNT and state-owned TV Pública – refused to broadcast the Frente Guasu campaign spot, which highlighted the two leading candidates’ direct involvement in last June’s parliamentary coup.
