Service celebrating new saint seals bond between her congregation and…

first_img Zora Nobles, left, and her cousin, Dwala Nobles, present relics of St. Anna Alexander at a service Oct. 6 at Saint Anna’s Episcopal Church in Antioch, California. Photo: Kazuhiro “Kaz” Tsuruta[Episcopal News Service] A California congregation named for one of The Episcopal Church’s newest saints, St. Anna Alexander, celebrated its namesake at a Sunday worship service that included a visit from two members of the church that Alexander helped establish in Pennick, Georgia.Dwala Nobles, 59, and Zora Nobles, 65, cousins and longtime members of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Pennick, brought with them century-old relics from Alexander’s work at Good Shepherd Church and its school, including Alexander’s Book of Common Prayer. On Oct. 6, Saint Anna’s Episcopal Church in Antioch, California, welcomed them as the congregation celebrated Alexander’s legacy as the only black Episcopal deaconess.“It was almost like coming home,” Dwala Nobles told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview the day after the service. “We felt like we were home among family and friends.”Saint Anna’s, the first Episcopal church to be named after an African American woman, was formed in March through the merger of two former congregations, St. George’s in Antioch and St. Alban’s in Brentwood in the Diocese of California. Alexander had only a year earlier been confirmed as a saint in The Episcopal Church, when General Convention in July 2018 voted to add her and her feast day, Sept. 24, to the church’s calendar of saints.Deaconess Anna Ellison Butler Alexander was born in 1865 to recently freed slaves and died in 1947. She ministered in rural Georgia, focusing on the education of poor black children. Photo: Diocese of GeorgiaAlexander was born in 1865 and died in 1947, and she spent much of her adult life ministering to poor black residents of Glynn and McIntosh counties in rural Georgia, particularly through education. She became a deaconess in 1907 in an era before the church allowed women as priests or deacons. Among those she taught at Good Shepherd were Dwala Nobles’ father and Zora Nobles’ father.Among the items they brought with them to California were Alexander’s hymnal from 1878 and a Sunday school ledger from the early 20th century. Some of the materials include Alexander’s handwritten notes on teaching methods.“St. Anna was indeed the persistent force encouraging and urging her students to aim high,” the Rev. Jennifer Nelson, a deacon in the Diocese of California, said in her sermon for the Oct. 6 service. Nelson is originally from Guyana and said Alexander reminded her of the caring teachers who encouraged her in her education.“She had God’s blessing as she continued to forge onward, blazing a path that gives us a window that now shows us the courage and tenacity she would need to overcome the bigotry and discrimination in her time.”During the service, Alexander’s Book of Common Prayer and other relics were placed on the altar. The cousins from Alexander’s Georgia church presented the congregation at Saint Anna’s with a framed picture of Alexander that was propped against the altar. Saint Anna’s reciprocated by giving Dwala Nobles and Zora Nobles a silver chalice that had been used by one of the two congregations that merged to form the new church.St. Anna Alexander’s relics, including her Book of Common Prayer and hymnal, are received by the Rev. Alberta Buller and placed on the altar during a service Oct. 6 at Saint Anna’s Episcopal Church. Photo: Kazuhiro “Kaz” TsurutaA video of the service was shared on the church’s Facebook page.Alexander was “imbuing us with her spirit,” the Rev. Jill Honodel, the congregation’s long-term supply priest, told ENS. She described it as an emotional and joyous day, centered around highlighting the life and works of an Episcopal saint who is only beginning to receive the full recognition she deserves.“It felt like together, from coast to coast, we are taking what has been hidden and invisible all these years and we have the privilege and the honor of revealing it,” Honodel said.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, who visited Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in January 2018, also addressed those gathered at Saint Anna’s, through a brief video he recorded for the service. He alluded to a resource center established by Saint Anna’s.“I rejoice in the fact that you, Saint Anna’s Episcopal Church, have focused on the needs of children and families in your community with a resource center for children and families,” Curry said. “That indeed is God’s work. That indeed is the work of Anna Alexander, deaconess of The Episcopal Church.”Honodel and other local leaders spent the following day showing their two visitors from Georgia around the San Francisco Bay Area, including a sightseeing stop at the Golden Gate Bridge. They were scheduled to return home with Alexander’s relics on Oct. 8.“It was just really critical that we come for this. We know this is just the beginning of the relationship,” Dwala Nobles said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

US — #WeeklyAddress special edition: December 18 2017 – January 7, 2018: President Trump ushers in new year with fresh attacks against the press

first_img Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US from December 18, 2017 – January 7, 2018: Trump tweets violent “memes” targeting CNN President Trump retweeted a violent image of himself with a bloody CNN logo portrayed on the sole of his shoe. The image was first tweeted out by an alleged pro-Trump account. This tweet from December 24 is one of many violent “memes” Trump has shared on his account targeting CNN throughout his presidency. He previously shared a GIF of himself “body-slamming” a figure with CNN’s logo superimposed on its head and an image of a “Trump train” hitting a man, also with a CNN logo covering his head. Trump has also repeatedly made verbal attacks on the network’s integrity, including a January 7 tweet that attacked CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper’s heated interview with Trump political advisor Steve Miller. The President’s hostile online rhetoric has seemingly encouraged others to tweet similar attacks on the media. On December 30, former Milwaukee County sheriff and Trump supporter David Clarke tweeted a photoshopped image of Trump restraining a man with a superimposed CNN logo, while a photoshopped Clarke is seen kicking the man in the face. He coupled the image with a caption that vowed to “MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD.” As a result of his tweet, Twitter suspended Clarke’s account for violations of their Terms and Conditions, but he regained access to his account under the condition that he delete his threatening tweet. Trump announces awards for “Fake News Media” Just two days into the new year, President Trump announced on Twitter that he would be hosting an award show for media outlets, with categories meant to discredit their reporting. While he had originally scheduled the event for January 8, the President has postponed the “ceremony” until January 17, citing interest and importance “far greater than anyone could have anticipated!” The announced awards have provoked criticism and concern from multiple press freedom advocates and journalists. Throughout 2017, President Trump has countlessly attacked the media on Twitter, with almost 200 of his tweets referring to outlets as “fake news.” The President has previously even entertained the idea of stripping “fake news outlets” of their broadcasting licenses, firing journalists who report on sensitive issues, and “opening” libel laws to make it easier to sue news outlets. The latest journalist targeted by President Trump for removal is ABC News’ Brian Ross, who was suspended and demoted for broadcasting inaccurate information about the President’s administration. Following the end of Ross’ suspension, Trump took to Twitter to call for Ross’ removal. President Trump tries to prevent the publication of a journalist’s book President Trump has attempted and failed to prevent the publication of a book that portrayed him in a negative light. On January 4, journalist Michael Wolff and publisher Henry Holt & Co. received a cease-and-desist letter from the President demanding they halt the “further publication, release or dissemination of the Book, the Article, or any excerpts or summaries of either of them, to any person or entity” and issue a retraction and apology to the President. If ignored, the letter threatened to sue Wolff and Henry Holt & Co. for defamation by libel. In defiance of Trump’s order, the book was published and released two days earlier from the original release date. The book in question, “Fire and Fury: Inside the White House,” offered an inside account of the Trump Administration, and detailed many allegedly controversial conversations between the President and his staff, including former aide Steve Bannon. Trump’s attempt to ban a book critical of him and his administration has raised questions regarding his understanding of the First Amendment, which protects free speech. The Author’s Guild, the oldest and largest professional organization for writers, released a statement that called Trump’s attempts “ flagrantly unconstitutional.” The Guild’s president, James Gleick, stated “That’s what tyrants do, not American presidents.” Citizen journalist penalized for filming a political rally Citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale was sentenced on December 15 to one year of probation, 40 hours of community service, and $1,000 in fines for recording a political rally. In August 2014, Tisdale was recording Republican candidates at a public event in Dawsonville, Georgia when the venue’s owner demanded she be removed. In her footage, a sheriff aggressively arrested Tisdale after she questioned why she was being asked to leave, and charged her with multiple felonies, including obstruction of an officer and criminal trespassing. If convicted of all charges originally brought against her, she faced a possible five years in prison. But she was only convicted of obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor, and avoided any prison time. Following the sentencing hearing, Tisdale’s attorney, Bruce Harvey stated, “I hope it doesn’t chill journalists…It certainly hasn’t deterred Nydia.” Tisdale’s arrest was a preview into a growing number of arrests of journalists over the past year. According to the US Press Freedom Tracker, a collaborative database of which RSF is a partner, 32 journalists were arrested in the US in 2017 in connection with their work. White House blames the media for President’s low approval rating During a press briefing on December 19, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed media coverage of President Trump for his low approval ratings. She stated that “90 percent of the coverage is negative about this President, when, as you just said, I listed off a number of things that have been pretty historic in nature in this first year. And if people were focused a lot more on those things in the media, I think that his numbers would be a lot higher.” The President has repeatedly accused the media of neglecting topics he believes are important, such as the economy. On January 5, the President tweeted about his recurring belief that the media intentionally underreport the state of the stock market, despite multiple media outlets’ extensive coverage of the topic. Security firm sues journalist for reporting on breach On December 19, Keeper, a security firm that specializes in password software, filed a lawsuit accusing Ars Technica security editor Dan Goodin of making “false and misleading statements.” The lawsuit is in response to Goodin’s article which reported on potential security concerns in the firm’s software. Keeper claims that the article defamed the firm and calls for Ars Technica to retract and remove the article from their website. President Trump and his family have often accused the media of defamation; First Lady Melania Trump has sued multiple media outlets and bloggers for defamation and libel. Trump’s repeated assertions that critical reporting constitutes “fake news” have seemingly encouraged similar lawsuits, such as Sarah Palin’s suit against the New York Times last year. White House fails to hold end-of-the-year press conference Breaking with tradition, the Trump White House decided not to hold an “end of year” press conference, which normally summarizes the accomplishments of the administration in its first year. This marks the first time in 15 years that the President didn’t comply with the tradition. While the President has hosted multiple joint press conferences with foreign heads of state, Trump’s notorious avoidance of solo press conferences have caused him to lag behind his predecessors’ record in the first 100 days of office. President Trump attacks The Washington Post on Twitter On December 19, President Trump attacked The Washington Post on Twitter in retaliation for an article it published regarding the relationship between the President and Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. His tweet uses the phrase “fake news”, which Trump has repeatedly chosen as a label for stories he finds unflattering. The President has previously attacked The Washington Post for publishing articles about his administration and has even directed his rage at individual journalists. On December 9, the President called for Post reporter Dave Weigel to be fired after he reported, and later corrected, a misleading image of the crowd size at a Trump rally in Florida.The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow on twitter @RSF_en.

Odessa Christian students score well in cursive contest

first_img Noel earns award Local NewsEducation Odessa Christian students score well in cursive contest Registration set for engineering camp WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Students at Odessa Christian School have once more captured wins in the annual Cursive is Cool Writing Contest offered by the Campaign for Cursive.Winners were 7-year-old first-grader Lilly Peer, 12-year-old sixth-grader Angel Nguyen and 9-year-old third-grader Joe Davis.Christian Gaytan, a second-grade student who moved out of the area, also took a place in the contest, Principal Nancy Campbell said.Peer, who has been writing in script since last year, said she likes writing in cursive because it’s different than print.“And it looks cooler than print,” she said.This is the third time in a row that Nguyen has taken a certificate in the competition. She got first place.“I was happy because this is my last year doing it. I got first place. It’s very different than printing, very neat,” Nguyen said.Davis has won the competition twice with poems about cursive.“I was just thinking about some ways to write like the story. I just thought of it. I don’t know how,” he said.“It’s neat and I have been doing it since pre-k because my mom, she wanted me to try cursive and I’ve liked it ever since,” he added.Teacher Don Potter read Davis’ most recent work:Cursive is beautiful. Cursive is sharp.It increases creativity and makes you smart.Cursive is exciting. Cursive is neat.And cursive is a visual treat.Campbell said she thinks when you write cursive your personality comes through.“Even though there’s a certain form you’re supposed to use, as a teacher you can tell whose cursive handwriting is who’s because their personality comes through,” she said.Potter added that cursive makes students pay attention to what they’re writing.“Each word is a separate unit when you write cursive, but in print each letter is individual,” he said.Cursive is Cool contest winners and Odessa Christian students Joe Davis, Angel Nguyen and Lilly Peer pose for a photo at the school.Ruth Campbell|Odessa AmericanMore Information By admin – May 2, 2018 Home Local News Education Odessa Christian students score well in cursive contest Previous articleCHAREN: Ironic consequences of Europe’s war guiltNext articleStrike Out Stroke admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Campaign for Cursive winners.Don Potter homepage.
