Grace Cathedral in San Francisco to play prominent role in Global Climate Action Summit Rector Pittsburgh, PA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York “The environment and climate is a hugely important issue for Grace Cathedral,” said the Very Rev. Malcolm Clemens Young, the cathedral’s dean.Faith “teaches you that there’s something beyond the human. There’s something beyond human culture and human interests. … It’s important because we have such an outsized impact on the world,” Young said. “It’s important for us to be conscious of that and really see ourselves as protectors of the world.”The cathedral’s capacity is about 2,000 people, but it rarely reaches that many except on Christmas and Easter, Young said. He isn’t sure how many will attend on Sept. 12 but expects a full crowd at the 4 p.m. service, which is described as a Multi-Faith Service of Wondering and Commitment.Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Dalai Lama each will contribute remarks at the service by video. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to speak, as is Patricia Espinosa Cantello, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Brown and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom have said they will attend.The service also will highlight faith-based efforts around the world to care for the planet, including the several related resolutions passed in July by the Episcopal Church’s 79th General Convention.The 2015 Paris Agreement, which sought voluntary limits on countries’ carbon emissions, has been a key rallying point, especially since President Donald Trump announced in 2017 that he would withdraw the United States from the agreement, saying it put the U.S. economy at a global disadvantage.The Episcopal Church has been involved in the We Are Still In movement, in which cities, states, companies, faith organizations and other groups have pledged to maintain the commitments of the Paris Agreement even if the U.S. government won’t. Resolution A018 specifically encourages Episcopalians to participate in that movement.The Episcopal Church should “set an example, in the spirit of the Paris Climate Accord, by making intentional decisions about living lightly and gently on God’s good earth, for example, through energy conservation, renewable energy, sustainable food practices and gardening,” the resolution says.Care of creation has been identified as one of three top priorities of the Episcopal Church, along with evangelism and racial reconciliation, during Curry’s tenure as presiding bishop, and General Convention’s numerous resolutions addressing environmental stewardship date back decades.Andrus has been at the forefront of that advocacy and has regularly led delegations on behalf of the presiding bishop to United Nations gatherings on climate change. The next U.N. Climate Change Conference, known by the shorthand COP24, will be held this December in Poland.“This summer, the Episcopal Church took a historic step and committed itself through multiple resolutions to keeping the Paris Agreement,” Andrus said, adding that Episcopalians are part of “a great movement of faith people” fighting for action against climate change.Andrus recalls speaking to Brown while both were attending the COP23 event last year in Bonn, Germany. The governor shared with Andrus his belief that “faith is important to justice work, as a foundation to climate action specifically,” and when Brown mentioned holding a multifaith service to kick off his Global Climate Action Summit, Andrus suggested Grace Cathedral.Since then, Andrus, the diocese, Interfaith Power & Light and GreenFaith have been working with Young’s staff at the cathedral to plan the service and the 20 workshops the cathedral is hosting this week that are affiliated with the summit, which will be based at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.Grace Cathedral also has become a hub for environmentally themed artwork thanks to Sukey Bryan, the cathedral’s artist in residence. She used a construction wall as a canvas to depict a river. Fire sculptures and tile work featuring ocean waves can be found around the building. Parishioners entering the cathedral are greeted by Bryan’s 70-foot banners featuring oak trees, and a giant planet Earth hangs from the cathedral’s front window.“It’s fantastic,” Andrus said of Bryan’s work. “Just beautiful.”Each year, the cathedral picks a different theme for its artist in residence, and this year’s theme was “Truths.”“Climate change was one of the big truths we wanted to talk about through this year,” Young said.He added that he is a surfer and has seen firsthand the impact of a changing climate on the ocean water where he surfs. As water levels rise, he has been told the road he takes to get to the ocean someday will disappear.“I think there’s a sense of hopelessness when it comes to the climate. There’s a sense that nothing we do will matter,” Young said, especially with the federal government no longer behind a global solution.But he hopes this week’s summit and the Sept. 12 service at the cathedral will bolster people’s spirits and encourage them to work toward practical outcomes. “I really believe that when you gather people together to work on a problem, novel solutions come up,” he said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Photo: Grace Cathedral, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] San Francisco this week has become the epicenter of the movement in the United States to take greater action against climate change, and the Diocese of California is playing a prominent role in the upcoming three-day Global Climate Action Summit that is spearheaded by California Gov. Jerry Brown.Thousands of activists, experts and people of faith are in the city this week for the summit. Many of them, including Episcopalians, participated Sept. 8 in a major march in San Francisco that was part of a series of worldwide demonstrations known as Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice. The Diocese of California and Bishop Marc Andrus are preparing to welcome hundreds of people at a kickoff worship service to be held Sept. 12 at Grace Cathedral. Affiliated workshops and other events already are underway around the city, including at the cathedral.

An 89-year-old widow and former factory girl from Ravensthorpe, West Yorkshire, has left an estate worth £6m. Rosa Hargreaves left all her money to her 51-year-old son John. It does not appear that she was encouraged to leave some of her estate to charity. Unfortunately, the Inland Revenue is claiming the full £2.3m in inheritance tax.Mrs Hargreaves’ wealth was based on shares in Glaxo left to her by her husband who died 47 years ago.

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call(WASHINGTON) — The Trump administration last year “lost” nearly 1,500 migrant children whom a government agency placed with U.S. sponsors.Shocking news — but it wasn’t true.But it was enough to outrage politicians, stir up journalists and make the public ask questions. Chasing this misleading story, however, helped uncover a story that many found even more troubling. And this one was real.Here’s how it happened.#WhereAreTheChildren takes holdIn late April, Steven Wagner, an official at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who oversees programs that place unaccompanied minors with families, told a Senate committee that a department office “was unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475 unaccompanied alien children” who had been placed with sponsors living in the United States.On May 25, National Missing Children’s Day, social media users began sharing a New York Times story on Wagner’s testimony, one that had been out in public for weeks but hadn’t received much attention. News of the testimony generated hundreds of thousands of tweets — and the trending hashtag #WhereAreTheChildren was born.Democratic politicians weighed in. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., posted on Twitter, “We are doing irreparable harm to our country; to our standing in the world as global leader; to our reputation as human rights champion. The world is watching, and they are watching in horror. #WhereAreTheChildren.”Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, posted about organizing a #WhereAreTheChildren rally in San Antonio.On May 28, after a Memorial Day weekend dominated by “lost children” headlines, Deputy HHS Secretary Eric Hargan disputed what was becoming a widespread narrative, saying these children were not “lost” but had simply been placed with friends and extended family members — some of whom might be in the country illegally — who didn’t respond when the government checked on them.It might be a logical move for them not to answer a voluntary call from a federal agency checking up on their charge.“Their sponsors — who are usually parents or family members and, in all cases, have been vetted for criminality and ability to provide for them — simply did not respond or could not be reached when this voluntary call was made,” Hargan said in a statement.Just because those children are unaccounted for did not mean they were missing, HHS said.But all the digging had uncovered a separate issue that had also been reported, but had not yet captured the nation’s full attention: the Trump administration’s practice of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern border, which accelerated under the “zero-tolerance” policy announced in April.“The situation at our southwest border is unacceptable,” U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on April 6 when he announced that all adults caught illegally entering the country would be detained and prosecuted.This policy — a break from what Sessions and President Trump have derisively called the “catch and release” practice of the Obama administration — came after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security reported a 203 percent increase in illegal border crossings from March 2017 to March 2018.To be clear: Family separation at the border had been happening for months, largely under the radar, but accelerated under “zero tolerance,” immigrant rights advocates say.The systemic separation of migrant parents from their children became the topic we’ve all become familiar with: adults sent to jails or DHS detention facilities, their minor children taken to shelters run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement or to foster homes. All told, 2,342 children, including infants, were separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border between May 5 and June 9, the DHS said.This story, brought into focus almost accidentally by the #WhereAreTheChildren furor, has driven the news cycle and prompted vigorous debate across the country.For example, in an op-ed for The Washington Post on June 17, former first lady Laura Bush described the facilities for children as “eerily reminiscent of the internment camps for U.S. citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II.”First lady Melania Trump also took notice, twice visiting detention facilities at the southern border, while Fox News host Laura Ingraham on June 18 described the children’s shelters as “essentially summer camps,” which drew swift backlash.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old unlikely winner of the Democratic primary election for the 14th Congressional District of New York, called for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as part of her platform and visited an ICE child detention center in Tornillo, Texas, last weekend.But some family separation stories emerged months earlier to a more muted response. For example, on Feb. 26, 2018, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit on behalf of “Ms. L,” a Congolese mother who entered the country legally at a border crossing near San Diego with her 7-year-old daughter on Nov. 1, 2017, to seek asylum.Four days after their arrival, Ms. L was sent to Otay Mesa Detention Center in San Diego County while her daughter was taken from her and flown 2,000 miles to a children’s shelter in Chicago. The child “sits all alone in a Chicago facility, frightened and traumatized, crying for her mother and not knowing when she will see her again,” the court papers filed by the ACLU stated.The ACLU told ABC News in February that it had learned of hundreds of similar cases, but was still gathering facts and had brought the lawsuit as a “legal test case.”Reflecting on what was known at that time, Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s National Immigrants’ Rights Project, said “the administration deflected attention away from the issue during the fall and winter by saying they were only considering a policy of family separation. But, in practice, they had already begun separating hundreds of families.”This was the case that became a class-action lawsuit that, this week, led to a nationwide preliminary injunction that temporarily halts the practice of family separation and orders the government to reunite all separated children within 30 days. The judge’s injunction came after Trump signed an executive order directing his agencies to keep migrant families together, with certain exceptions, but provided no timetable for reunification.Ms. L and her daughter, after spending nearly five months apart, were reunited in March.“In seeking civil rights changes, court cases are a critical piece, but nothing can substitute for public outcry,” Gelernt said.That outcry, which reached a fever pitch in recent weeks, took months to unfold. And it largely began with a search for children who probably weren’t missing after all. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Storm Florence was upgraded to a hurricane on Sunday morning by the National Hurricane Center.Florence is now classified as a Category 1 hurricane, and is currently expected to hit the southeastern coast of the U.S.Governors in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina have all declared states of emergency over the past two days in anticipation of the storm.At a press conference on Sunday afternoon, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said Florence is expected to become a Category 4 hurricane with winds that could reach up to speeds of 150 mph.“Assume, presume that a major hurricane is going to hit right smack dab in the middle of South Carolina,” said McMaster, urging South Carolinians to prepare for the worst. Eight hundred members of the National Guard have been activated in the state.Hurricane Florence has maximum sustained winds of 90 mph as of 11 p.m. Sunday, and is 685 miles southeast of Bermuda, moving west at 7 mph.The current forecast track predicts that Florence will approach the southeast U.S. coast on Thursday.The National Hurricane Center is now saying that there is an increasing risk of storm surge on the coast, and inland flooding due to heavy rainfall. Both are life-threatening impacts.They are advising “interests along the U.S. East Coast, particularly from North Florida through North Carolina, should closely monitor the progress of Florence, ensure they have their hurricane plan in place and follow any advice given by local officials.”Isaac becomes hurricaneMoving south in the Atlantic, Isaac strengthened into a hurricane late Sunday with winds of 75 mph and is moving west at 14 mph. The storm is 1,305 miles east of the Windward Islands.The storm is expected to continue moving west in the next few days and become a hurricane by Monday.Isaac will be near the Lesser Antilles later this week and could bring impacts to parts of the Caribbean Islands during this time frame.Olivia aiming for HawaiiIn the Pacific, Hurricane Olivia is currently a Category 1 storm with winds of 75 mph, and is approximately 595 miles east-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii, as of 5 p.m. local time Sunday.A tropical storm watch was issued in the latest update across much of Hawaii, including Oahu, Maui, Hawaii counties.Olivia is expected to move west through Monday before turning west-southwest late Monday and early Tuesday local time. On the current track, Olivia may be near the Hawaiian Islands by late Tuesday.Even though Olivia is expected to weaken, it could still bring impacts to the Hawaiian Islands by midweek.Regardless of forecast track, significant effects from Olivia are possible in Hawaii, which could be enhanced due to the unique terrain of Hawaii.Heavy rain and potential flooding and mudslides are a growing concern, more so than winds. Rainfall of 10 to 15 inches is possible in some areas, particularly on the Big Island, which has already seen significant rainfall in recent weeks.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

The Royal Australian Navy joined other members of Western Australia’s maritime community and more than eleven thousand members of the public on Saturday to celebrate the state’s seafaring industries.Officers and Sailors from HMAS Stirling gave the public a glimpse into their professional lives at the Celebrate Maritime Day event held at the Port of Fremantle, which showcased maritime industries, organisations and companies, and promoted safety at sea.Navy’s exhibits included a Naval Police Coxswain’s ‘Police van’, maritime fire fighting demonstrations, mine clearance diving equipment, survival equipment, life-raft demonstrations, interactive first-aid demonstrations, and a careers information stand manned by DFR and the Submarine Recruiting Team.Navy PTIs put children through their paces and Port Services personnel taught knot tying, while other sailors got to work at the face painting stand. An LR5 Rescue Submersible display manned by Stirling’s Submarine Escape Rescue Centre and James Fisher Defence was a crowd favourite.RHIB (Rigid hull inflatable boat) demonstrations in the harbour delighted spectators, and unexploded ordinance disposal robots caught the attention of fascinated onlookers. Navy chef’s participated in sea-food cook-off competition while the RAN Band were a hit on stage.The Commanding Officer of HMAS Stirling, CAPT Brett Wolski, said the day was a tremendous success and a great way for Navy to strengthen the bond shared with the wider maritime community.“There has always been a great fellowship between civilian seafarers and members of the Royal Australian Navy, and this event proved the relationship is particularly strong here in Western Australia, which benefits all of us.”“Celebrate Maritime Day was also a great opportunity for my crew to interact with the public, who have always been incredibly supportive of us in this State.” said Captain Wolski.Celebrate Maritime Day is an annual event aimed at enticing newcomers into the maritime industries. Stirling is a major stakeholder in the event, which consequently acts as a window to Navy for Western Australians.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, September 10, 2012; Image: Royal Australian Navy View post tag: Royal Share this article September 10, 2012 View post tag: Maritime View post tag: News by topic View post tag: day Training & Education View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Australian Navy Celebrates Fremantle’s Maritime Day View post tag: Naval View post tag: celebrates View post tag: Australian View post tag: Fremantle Royal Australian Navy Celebrates Fremantle’s Maritime Day

Back to overview,Home naval-today Australian Defence Minister Praises MH370 Search Efforts View post tag: Defence In supporting the AMSA search operations in the southern Indian Ocean, Pearce is now home to four Air Force AP-3C Orions, one Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3K2 Orion and two Japanese Self Defense Force P-3 Orions.A United States Navy P8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and two Ilyushin IL-76 aircraft from the People’s Liberation Army Air Force are supporting the search from Perth airport.Senator Johnston said the search for any signs of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 has been suspended for today due to poor weather conditions in the search area. Low cloud and poor visibility will prevent an air search today and HMAS Success departed the search area early this morning.Senator Johnston said he was deeply grateful for the efforts of the multi-national pilots, aircrew and maintenance personnel in supporting AMSA’s search operations almost 2,500 km away.“The challenge of flying to such a remote region and conducting search operations cannot be over-stated. With eight hours of flying to and from the search region, the fleet of P-3 Orion aircraft and other military aircraft have only a precious few hours to scour the search tracks they have been given by AMSA.“With search operations in the southern Indian Ocean entering their second week, the pilots and air-crew are under incredible pressure to find evidence of the missing aircraft.“The strong international team here is doing all they can to provide answers for the families of the people on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. For this reason, the pilots and aircrew of all nations here at RAAF Base Pearce and flying from Perth Airport are focused on thoroughly searching their designated areas.”More than half-a-million square kilometers have been searched to date. HMAS Success entered the search area on Saturday and has been conducting surface sweeps of specific areas. Chinese warships and the polar supply ship Xue Long are also enroute to the search area. Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield has also sailed from Sydney enroute to Western Australia so that she will be available to join the search if required.“We also look forward to the arrival of a C-130H Hercules and P-3C Orion from the Republic of Korea later today as this multi-national team grows,” Senator Johnston said.[mappress]Press Release, March 25, 2014, Image: Australian DoD View post tag: Navy View post tag: Defense View post tag: search Share this article March 25, 2014 View post tag: News by topic Australian Defence Minister Praises MH370 Search Efforts View post tag: Minister View post tag: Naval
