New British & Irish Lions Tour 2021 Schedule ConfirmedA new schedule for the British & Irish Lions 2021 tour to South Africa has been confirmed.Rather than moving around the country as per the original schedule, all eight matches will now be played in either Gauteng or Cape Town due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The reduction in travel means the Lions will have just two bases and minimises the risk of disruption associated with Covid.The tour will kick off with two games in Johannesburg and one in Pretoria, followed by three in Cape Town, including the first Test. The second and third Tests will both be played at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.In one opposition change to the original schedule, South African franchise the Lions have replaced the SA Invitational team.SA franchise the Lions have been added to the schedule (Gallo Images/Getty Images)All Saturday tour matches will kick off at 6pm in South Africa (5pm UK & Ireland time) while the two Wednesday matches will get underway at 8pm in South Africa (7pm UK & Ireland).LIONS 2021 LATEST NEWSFor the pre-tour Test against Japan at BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh at the end of June, a crowd of 16,500 supporters will be able to attend after discussions with the Scottish Government.Not all those who have purchased tickets will be able to attend due to the reduced capacity and those that can’t will be refunded. All ticket holders will be contacted by Friday 28 May to advise whether they have been successful in gaining access to the match. For more information on tickets, visit lionsrugby.com/faqs/1888-cup-faqsHowever, current restrictions mean it is unlikely fans will be able to attend the matches in South Africa.SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux said: “It has been a challenging process with dozens of variables to consider but we believe we have arrived at a schedule that minimises the risks associated with the pandemic.“We are hopeful that restrictions on attendance at sports events will be relaxed but, for the moment, we are planning for an event behind closed doors. If that requirement changes, then we’ll assess the options available and make the necessary decisions based on the restrictions in place.FNB Stadium in Johannesburg will stage two Tests (Gallo Images/Getty Images)“This is not the Castle Lager Lions Series we imagined when we started our planning more than two-and-a-half years ago but, in the circumstances, I think it is an exciting prospect.“After all the uncertainty it’s a relief to be able to put a stake in the ground and confirm what the series will look like – I’m sure most of us can’t now wait for kick-off.”last_img read more

ACC holds presentation on Christian witness in a multifaith world

first_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit a Press Release Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Anglican Taonga and ACNS] What does it mean to witness to your Christian faith in a multi-faith world?That was the topic of last evening’s public presentation at the ACC, the last of the three for this Auckland gathering.An audience of about 200 heard presentations from three speakers – from the Rev Bruce Keeley, who is the co-vicar of All Saints Howick in Auckland, and who spoke of living in a society where Christianity is still the major religion; from the Rev Peter Koon, who ministers in Hong Kong, where Christianity is a minority faith, amidst a large variety of religious groups – and from The Rev Canon Dr Dickson Chilogani, who is from Tanzania, where about half the population are Christian believers, while the rest are either Muslims, or subscribe to African tribal religions.The theme of the evening was the challenge of presenting effective, respectful, loving Christian witness to people of other faiths – and of how Christians in the West had to recalibrate their thinking and their efforts.Bruce Keeley, for example, spoke of growing up in a New Zealand “where it was generally assumed that most New Zealanders were Christians.”In the days of his childhood, he said, it was assumed that Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims dwelt only in distant lands, “and it was the task of Christians in this country to pray for their conversion to Christ, and to send missionaries to those countries to help our prayers be answered.”The scene in New Zealand had, Bruce said, changed radically since then.He spoke of moves made to rethink things in the light of New Zealand’s new religious diversity – and he gave a poignant account of a friendship he has “with a learned and saintly Iranian friend” which includes regular theological discussions.“He got very excited when I read to him from the first chapter of Colossians:He is the image of the invisible God,The first-born of all creation,For in him all things in heaven and earth were created…He himself is before all things and in him all things hold together.“Not long after, I received an urgent email from him:‘Bruce, help me – I’m in Iran. I’m about to give a lecture and I can’t remember the reference for those beautiful words about Jesus.’“Now, I don’t know what those words actually meant to him.“That’s God’s business.“But just as my life and faith have been immeasurably enriched by dialoguing with him, I suspect, and trust, it has been the same for him.”The later part of the evening was devoted to a new document called: Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World – which is a joint production from the World Council of Churches; the Roman Catholic Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue; and the World Evangelical Alliance.This starts with the conviction that true mission is God’s mission – and not ours – and of the need to show respect and sensitivity in the outworking of God’s mission.Sue Parks, from the Anglican Communion Office, delivered a PowerPoint presentation about that document.“It doesn’t draw boundaries for witnessing to Christ,” she said, “But it helps people to discover them for themselves within their own context.”She quoted further from the document: “It is essential that every Christian be involved in God’s mission.” And “we witness Christ in every context, but conversion is ultimately the work of the Holy Spirit.”In the wake of last evening’s presentation, this morning the ACC passed Resolution 15:24.ACC-15:endorses Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World and encourages all Provinces to study it, to assess their current practice of Christian witness, and develop practices to suit their local contexts in the light of its recommendations and of ‘Generous Love1.”recommends that that Provinces encourage discussion of Christian Witness with other faith communities and, where possible, to do so ecumenically.

Compromising Triune God with multifaith world for the sake of peace is not the answer, as Christ did not deny Himself in Sanhedrin as Son of God to save His life. Carrying God’s mission in this imperfect world is the Anglican Communion’s common platform thru which Communion could be united and grows.

The treaty is a multilateral legally binding instrument for nuclear disarmament in two decades. It was approved by 122 nations at the U.N. General Assembly in 2017 and came into force on Jan. 22 after Honduras became the 50th nation to ratify it.The world’s main nuclear powers – the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China and France – have not signed the accord, and neither has Japan, the only country to have endured the use of nuclear weapons against it.

The site in the centre of the city of Aalst comprises valuable and less valuable buildings that face onto the walled convent garden that is situated near the built-up historical city centre. The goal of the project is to repurpose and upgrade the site without losing sight of its quality in terms of open space and atmosphere that such a city garden can offer.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtThis once highly isolated community will be transformed into a housing project comprising different types of dwelling where families of various sizes can feel at home. The project’s layout and architectural qualities help create a viable housing project located in the city centre, while respecting the existing urban design and its historical context. On the side facing the street, the new multi-story family dwellings form a transition between the adjacent buildings, the chapel and the protected dwelling.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtThrough an interplay of cornices mirroring those of neighbouring dwellings, the street’s once chaotic impression has now been harmonized and upgraded. The gap created in the row of housing that allows access to the convent garden lightens up and creates a sense of space in this formerly dark narrow street. The transformation of the chapel into a multipurpose hall helps maintain the site’s public character. The office and living spaces give the protected dwelling a new lease of life.Save this picture!PlanThe newly freed up left elevation with its new brickwork and window apertures brings light to both the offices and the apartments. The existing character of the site was kept in mind when transforming the convent complex into a housing project. Our preference was for a facade with austere vertical openings, its distinctive brickwork facing set off by its concrete plinth. The receding window apertures overshadow the window surfaces and give the facades a certain understated look. Before the new buildings were erected in the convent garden, we first went in search of a logical and integrated concept. The new buildings were built parallel to the garden walls. In this way, we could explore the limits of the site.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtThis also allowed for dialogue between the existing convent space and the new buildings without losing touch with the old surrounding walls. This also created interesting new openings and perspectives. The garden wall remains visible from everywhere on the site, which maintains its original character while grafting the new buildings strongly onto the existing location. Sloping roofs were opted for to remain in character with the original picture of the area; as a result the upstairs apartments have exceptional living spaces.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtThe underground car park is directly accessible via a slope in Louis D’haeseleerstraat.

More London charities to take part in The Childhood Trust’s Summer Give Campaign 2016

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 23 March 2016 | News  137 total views,  1 views today The Childhood Trust is to run its matched giving campaign The Summer Give again, designed to enable London charities to help alleviate the impact of child poverty during the summer holidays.The Trust, which supports vulnerable children in London, will run The Summer Give campaign from midday on 16 May to midday on 18 May.The matched funding is provided by the Childhood Trust itself and from pledges from some of the charities’ major donors.Charities can now apply to take part in the The Summer Give, which is run using The Big Give‘s giving platform, by completing a short application form, uploading details of their project and securing commitments of pledges from their own major donors.Those selected to take part by The Childhood Trust will be given advice and assistance to market the campaign to their own supporters.Donations doubledInitially donations will be matched by the charities’ own pledges. Once these are exhausted they will be matched by The Childhood Trust funds until the matching pot for the charity is exhausted.For example, if a charity is seeking to raise a total of £20,000 towards its project and receives online donations of £10,000 in the Summer Give, these donations will be doubled by pledges (£5,000) and The Childhood Trust (£5,000).The participating charities can therefore invite existing and new supporters to donate to help their work with London children during the summer holidays and to be confident that their donation will be doubled, provided it is made during the Summer Give campaign.2015 resultLast year, 18 projects took part and raised a total of £527,000, benefiting 3,718 children.Activities funded ranged from sand and water play for tots, through to facilitated work experience and interview skills training for older teens. Advertisement National Children’s Day 2016 #NCD2016This year The Childhood Trust is adding more funding into the matching fund and expects around 25 charities to take part, with the potential to raise around £750,000.In addition, the Summer Give is timed to coincide with National Children’s Day 2016, a partnership with the Save Childhood Movement, a campaigning organisation. As part of this The Childhood Trust expects many of its projects to arrange events for the public on Sunday 15 May which will raise awareness of the ‘double your donation’ opportunities over the following 48 hours.Which charities are eligible?UK charities which are eligible for match funding as part of the Summer Give include those which are supporting London’s poorest children during the school holidays. Their project must include the provision of suitable activities and healthy food. Charities must be aiming to raise between £4,000 and £60,000 for their project.Lisa Gagliani, CEO of The Childhood Trust said:“Each time we have partnered with The Big Give in the past we have seen the significant benefits the donations have had to London’s poorest children, so for this year’s event to be even bigger is a very exciting prospect. Match funding is one of the most productive ways to fundraise, and we hope it will benefit children across London, as well as raising the profile of The Childhood Trust and its work to alleviate the impact of poverty in the UK.”The Childhood Trust was established in October 2013 and has now worked with over 150 charity partners across two online platforms to raise over £4.2m for projects that alleviate the impact of child poverty across every borough in London.

Statement supporting the Syrian people

first_imgThe following introduction and statement was issued by the United National Antiwar Coalition April 14:Pro-Western Syrian exiles have initiated a statement supported by a number of “progressive” individuals and organizations. The statement is titled,“Erasing people through disinformation: Syria and the ‘anti-imperialism’ of fools.” In this statement, which supports the goal of the U.S. and its allies of regime change in Syria, the authors attack those who have consistently supported an end to intervention in Syria by the U.S., NATO, Israel and other repressive states in the Middle East. Their statement was signed by a number of people in the U.S. and around the world. UNAC was one of the groups that this statement criticized. The war on Syria has been an especially divisive issue for the peace movement, so we and others have put out the statement below explaining our position. If you agree with this statement, we ask that you sign as an individual or an organization. Go to unac.notowar.net.Click here to sign the statementAs the Biden Administration took office in the U.S., one of their first actions was to increase U.S. troop levels in the northeastern region of Syria currently occupied by the United States and its proxies. Shortly thereafter, the United States bombed a Syrian town on the eastern border killing as many as 30 Syrians, purportedly to target hostile “Iraqi militiamen” or to “send a message” to Iran. U.S. proxies are selling Syrian grain in Turkey, and a U.S.-based corporation now operates a refinery in the Syrian territory occupied by U.S. troops and proxies.Last year, Congress passed the Caesar Sanctions as an amendment to the massive Defense Appropriations Bill. These sanctions cause the Syrian people to go without the basic necessities such as food, energy and medicine. They have destroyed the Syrian currency and are literally causing starvation. At this time, it is impossible, even for the United Nations, to bring aid into Syria.Moreover, these sanctions block reconstruction and the return of hundreds of thousands of refugees from impoverished camps in surrounding states. Syrians can’t return if there is no potable water, food or housing for their families. Meanwhile, the only Syrians who can receive international aid are those in U.S.-occupied territories and those in areas controlled by the U.S. ally, Al Nusra/Al Qaeda.There has been a recent swell of anti-Syria propaganda, supported by prominent activists on the “left.” This has included attacks on the majority of the U.S. antiwar movement, which has focused on opposing U.S. and outside aggression against Syria and which supports the right of Syria to defend its national sovereignty against this outside aggression. The clear fact is that the U.S. government, along with its allies in NATO, Israel and other reactionary Middle Eastern states, is the primary cause of the current devastation of the Syrian people. The U.S. and its allies have facilitated the entry into Syria of tens of thousands of foreign fighters to support their regime-change agenda.As with the lies about weapons of mass destruction that led to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, the U.S. and its allies have put forth accusations about Syria using chemical weapons and terror against its own people, which have now been totally discredited and disproved.Therefore: We condemn the illegal occupation of Syrian territory by U.S. forces and their proxies and their illegal and unprovoked military attacks on Syrian soil and Syrian people. We condemn the ongoing theft of Syrian oil and Syrian grain by U.S. proxies, resources desperately needed by the Syrian people. We condemn the so-called Caesar Sanctions, illegal, immoral unilateral coercive measures. We condemn the U.S. war on the Syrian Republic and the callous violation of Syrian sovereignty.  We demand the withdrawal of ALL U.S. troops and U.S. funding of foreign mercenary forces and U.S. funding of armed, internal opposition forces from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and a lifting of the U.S. naval blockade of Yemen. We demand an end to illegal U.S. sanctions on Syria.Initial signers: United National Antiwar Coalition, Syria Solidarity Movement, Black Alliance for Peace, U.S. Peace Council, Hands off Syria Coalition, Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, Popular Resistance, Arab Americans for Syria, Youth Against Empire, International Action Center, Veterans for Peace, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Socialist Action, Hands off Syria — Australia, BAYAN USA.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Afridi has been insisting on his innocence ever since his arrest by the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) in 1999.The press freedom organisation said the police investigation and the initial judicial decisions were so marred by irregularities, manipulation and harassment that Afridi should be acquitted and released, above all procedural grounds.Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call for an independent commission to investigate how the authorities have kept an newspaper editor in prison for nearly seven years.The two death penalties passed on Afridi in 2001 were commuted to life imprisonment in June 2004 by the Lahore high court, which ruled that hashish trafficking was not a crime punishable by death. Afridi was the first person in Pakistani history to get the death penalty on a hashish trafficking charge.The courts have themselves on several occasions condemned the police for its mishandling of the investigation, especially for the destruction of evidence.The Afridi family and Reporters Without Borders have gathered ample evidence showing that Afridi, who is from the Tribal Areas, was the victim of retaliation by the US government-financed ANF for his reports accusing it of abuse of authority and corruption.Afridi was sentenced to die by hanging in June 2001. He was arrested on 2 April 1999 for trafficking and possession of drugs. Many members of the Afridi clan are alleged to be involved in drug trafficking.
