By Rugby World editor Paul MorganVenue: Twickenham Stadium Date: Saturday, 12 February Kick-off: 2.30pm GMTCoverage: Watch live on BBC One, HD channel, Red Button and BBC Sport website from 1400; listen on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra; live text online and on mobilesEngland take the unusual step of naming an unchanged side, a luxury that Martin Johnson has rarely been presented with since taking over in the summer of 2008. His only option after the 26-19 win over Wales was to bring the squad’s “fetcher” Hendre Fourie back after he recovered from a calf injury, but he has decided to stick with the power play of James Haskell at openside flanker, instead preferring to introduce Fourie after the 50-minute mark when turnovers can be more precious, the opposition forwards will be getting more tired, and his interventions may create more gaps than in the first 20 minutes. Especially in the first half England’s attacking game plan is built around their power runners like Haskell and Mike Tindall.The Twickenham crowd will demand more than just a 6-3 win but for Johnson it is two points that are crucial. “A win is always number one. That is the healthiest mindset. If you start thinking of unrealistic expectations you will be in trouble,” Johnson told me at the team’s Bagshot headquarters on Thursday. “Our number one priority is to win. Number two is we don’t have any serious injuries and number three is that it is an exciting Test match. If you go in with that attitude to any game you are in the right place. If you start thinking what it looks like, then you are in trouble.“We are here to win Test matches, make no bones about it. We have exciting players all over the field who can score and create damage and we want to use them – but to do that you have to win the battle.”Italy will play a restricted game plan as they have at Twickenham over the last decade but at least the new law interpretations will restric their opportunities to fire the ball high in the air time and time again, whcih will be a relief to the 80,000 heading to south-west London on Saturday. Attack coach Brian Smith said England would try not to get involved in a game of “aerial ping pong” but Italy would like nothing more than to spoil England’s party, hang in their until the 60-minute mark and see if Micro Bergasmasco can kick them home.I make England 15-point favourites and expect them to turn the screw after half-time if they approach the game with the right mindset. But let us have your predictions. What do you think will happen at Twickers?Johnson added: “The biggest fundamental of all these matches are that we have to have more energy, more enthusiasm, more speed around the field than these guys. We have to create that buzz. We have to bring the juice whatever game we play and I think the players understand that.”Nick Mallett’s biggest decision was to change his outside-half, Kris Burton dropping to the bench with Luciano Orquera replacing him. “Orquera should also have started against Ireland but he was coming back from an injury in November and it was he himself who said he didn’t feel quite ready, so now the coach is giving him his chance,” said Italy team manager Luigi Troiani.Ladbrokes are giving England a 21-point start.

Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Tags Press Release Service Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Shreveport, LA Archbishop of Canterbury Rector Bath, NC PJ Cabbiness says: “Do not be afraid; for see – I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people” (Luke 2:10)Earlier this year I made a very moving visit to the Holy Land. Amid a busy schedule of meetings and visits there were some moments of stillness and prayerful encounter with the living God. At the traditional sites associated with Our Lord’s life, ministry, death and resurrection we were able to stop and to pray. In Nazareth we prayed with Mary, the Mother of God, at the site of the annunciation; in Bethlehem, amidst the activity of restoration works in the Church of the Nativity, we found that place of quiet where Christians come to venerate Jesus’ birth; in Jerusalem, in the restored aedicule within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre we rejoiced in the resurrection of our crucified Lord.The gospel story, the saving story of Jesus Christ is good news indeed. The Gospel according to St Luke tells us the story of the good news announced to the Shepherds. On the hillsides above Bethlehem the Angel of the Lord appeared and brought good news. The good news was none other than the birth in Bethlehem of a Saviour, the Christ, the Lord.This year we have learned a new phrase in various parts of the world. This phrase is ‘fake news’. Fake news is dishonest; it is deliberate misinformation published in order to deceive, to confuse and disrupt. Fake news is used as a weapon to achieve dishonest advantage and to subvert honest debate and discussion. It is the antithesis of the good news. Fake news is but lying and does not come from God.But we like the Angels proclaim good news and, like the Shepherds, we receive good news. The good news is good news for all people, whatever their situation in life. It is good news for politicians and leaders but is also good news for the refugees and displaced persons who continue to flee from danger and seek safety and sanctuary. As St Gregory Nazianzen writes:He who gives riches becomes poor, for he assumes the poverty of my flesh, that I may assume the richness of his Godhead. He that is full empties himself, for he empties himself of his glory for a short while, that I may have a share in his fullness. (Oration 38. 13)This is truth and this is good news. As receivers of the good news we are called to pass on the good news and to make real the promise of that good news to those in need. In a poem reflecting on the evangelist St Luke, the poet and priest Malcolm Guite wrote:“He breathes good news to all who bear a burdenGood news to all who turn and try again,The meek rejoice and prodigals find pardon,A lost thief reaches paradise through pain,The voiceless find their voice in every wordAnd, with Our Lady, magnify Our Lord.”(from “St Luke”, in Sounding the Seasons, (Norwich: Canterbury Press, 2012))This Christmas I pray that we might, as Christians with one voice, proclaim again the good news that is our salvation in Jesus Christ.In His Peace+Justin CantuarThe Most Rev. and Rt.

Erin Flinn (left), North Central Region missionary for The Episcopal Church in Connecticut, talks to participants during a “Wild Worship” outdoor Eucharist service on Aug. 21, 2019. Photo: The Episcopal Church in Connecticut[Episcopal News Service] For many years, reorganizing church structure and governance to be more efficient and effective has been suggested as a way to adapt to the societal changes The Episcopal Church is contending with. But the record of progress toward that goal has been mixed, at least on a churchwide level.The Episcopal Church in Connecticut has taken its own action on structural reform by replacing its 14 deaneries – which were seen as outdated – with six regions, each served by a “region missionary” who fosters collaboration and engagement in the parishes of that region.Two years after the first missionaries were hired, their positions have gone from part time to full time and the program has been hailed as a success.“The people and the parishes have faithfully chosen to realize the truth that the church and the world is changing … and there’s only going to be more change afoot,” the Rt. Rev. Ian Douglas, bishop of Connecticut, told Episcopal News Service. “And instead of licking our wounds or wallowing in loss and decline, the people of The Episcopal Church in Connecticut have said, ‘Let’s look forward in faith and try on new ways of being the body of Christ.’”The traditional deanery model – which hadn’t been adjusted since 1984 – had become dysfunctional, diocesan leaders said. When asked what wasn’t working about the deanery model, the Rev. Timothy Hodapp, canon for mission collaboration, couldn’t help but laugh.“We had 28 participating members in what was then called the diocesan Executive Council, so that was two representatives from each of the 14 deaneries,” Hodapp said. “And of those 14, three were actually on the ground, active, doing a lot of really great work. The others – it would go from doing great work on one end to not participating at all on the other, and then kind of middling in between those two extremes. And so you might have your council come together and barely get a quorum, and the work of the council was oftentimes rubber-stamping what bishops and canons had already done.”Even though it was apparent to some in the diocese that the deaneries overall were not adding to the life of the church or the communities they served, it took a fresh set of eyes to make substantive changes in the oldest organized diocese in the United States. Douglas, who became diocesan bishop in 2010, was the first to be elected from outside the state since the diocese was created in 1784.“So the Holy Spirit was up to something here in Connecticut as far as wanting change,” Douglas said.“There’s been a tradition, particularly in Connecticut, that the diocese is embodied in the bishop and staff and diocesan structures,” he added. “What I’ve underscored in everything that we do is the diocese is not the bishop and staff and council and standing committee, etc. The diocese is the united witness of the 160 parishes in Connecticut.”The need for a change started to become clear during the work of the Task Force for Reimagining The Episcopal Church in 2013 and 2014. The task force, also known as TREC, eventually issued a report that recommended consolidating church governance structures. Some the most significant recommendations, such as a unicameral General Convention, still have not been adopted, but TREC’s work inspired the diocese to start its own task force in 2014.“The good work that was begun by the general TREC initiative, I think, was too bold and too far-reaching for the whole church, which is why it really wasn’t picked up at General Convention,” Douglas said, “whereas we in Connecticut said, ‘Boy, sure makes sense to us. Why don’t we do it?’”The TREC report inspired the “four C’s” that would eventually become the job description of the region missionaries: catalyze, connect, convene and build capability. Redrawing the deaneries into larger regions required the diocese to examine how each unique corner of the state has evolved over time, which ultimately yielded a surprisingly familiar result.“As we devised where these lines might be, to siphon off which chunks of villages are going to be in a region, we went back into the archives and we tried several different iterations,” Hodapp explained. “But following the trunk highways and the river valleys, etc., we parsed it, and it almost matched perfectly to 1843 archdeaconries; there were six of them. And here it was. So we returned to our legacy in a real sense.”The Episcopal Church in Connecticut’s region missionaries: Dylan Mello, Erendira Jimenez, George Black, the Rev. Erin Flinn (standing), Maggie Breen and the Rev. Rachel Thomas (standing). Photo: The Episcopal Church in ConnecticutAlong with consolidating the deaneries into regions and establishing the region missionaries, the diocesan task force also recommended abolishing all committees and commissions that are not canonically required. Those were replaced with “ministry networks,” but it’s not just a change in terminology; in keeping with the spirit of the task force, these new groups are organized from the bottom up, not from the top down. If any group of Episcopalians wants to act together on a particular issue, they can form a ministry network and get support from the diocese.“There’s no application for recognition, there’s no canonical authorization; just do it,” Douglas said. “And if people say, ‘Well, how do we do the work, say, in prisons? Where’s the diocesan committee on prison ministry?’ We say, ‘Go and do it. Organize yourself. You don’t have to wait for us to give you authority. You have the baptismal authority you need.’”Two teams of about 30 people worked on the topic over the course of two years, Hodapp said, and when they put every committee and commission up on a wall, they realized what had to be done.“What’s common to all of this?” Hodapp said. “And why do we have it established as a group that needs to be meeting with Robert’s Rules of Order and taking notes when we need to be more flexible, and we need to network differently, and we need to be in a world that has changed completely around us?”Each region gathers for a convocation at least once a year, during which they select one layperson and one clergy member to serve on the diocesan Mission Council – which replaced the Executive Council – along with a representative from each ministry network.The task force’s plan was adopted enthusiastically at the 2015 diocesan convention, and the region missionaries were the last piece to be implemented, with the first cohort of three priests and three laypeople hired in 2017. Their task, Douglas said, is not to be a stopgap to help keep struggling churches in business, although they do play an important role in the 67 percent of parishes without full-time clergy. Their task is to rethink how the churches operate in their communities, Hodapp says.“Who else needs to be at the table? And that doesn’t mean just Episcopalians. But who are our allies within this village or these three villages? How do we really engage the neighborhood in a meaningful way, for what it needs for right now?” Hodapp said.Maggie Breen, the missionary for the sparsely populated Northeast Region, spends each Sunday at one of the region’s 16 parishes, and every Sunday is different.“I have been bringing a map of the town” in which each parish is situated, Breen told ENS. “And I’ll indicate where the parish is in the town, and I’ll ask people to think about the town and tell me what things have they noticed that break their heart and what things have they noticed that really bring them joy. And we map those out, and then we brainstorm, What could we do about any of those?”One of Breen’s accomplishments in her region is a lay preaching class, which had previously been done in the Northwest Region. She also organizes a series of “Crafting as a Spiritual Practice” days, in which participants – including members of other churches – connect over their hobbies and their faith.The North Central Region’s missionary, the Rev. Erin Flinn, has organized a film and conversation series on racial justice and is working to connect wardens from different parishes so they can feel supported and share their experiences. She also is focusing on enabling parishioners to start mission work on their own.“If you have a call, go do something,” Flinn said. “One of the things that I think the region [model] is great for is if you have a call to go and do something, but you don’t want to do it by yourself, contact me. Let me know what you’re doing. I guarantee there’s somebody else in the region that is doing the same thing.”Flinn, who was ordained to the transitional diaconate in June, said the regional model has been particularly beneficial to the small parishes, helping them join forces and accomplish more together.“We have several small parishes that are now collaborating in new ways,” Flinn said. “The mentality of regions and networks has really been a lifeline to our smaller communities that don’t have a lot of resources and only have half-time or quarter-time clergy.”The region missionaries have organized and facilitated mission trips, spiritual hikes, communication workshops, garden projects, paddling trips, book groups and more, and they also serve as a liaison between parishes and the diocese.“I spend a lot of time trying to build relationships,” Breen said. “I frequently act as a sort of bridge between what’s happening at the ground level in the parish and then what’s happening at the diocesan house, bringing information from [the diocese] into the parishes, and then also bringing interesting things are happening the parishes up to [the diocese].”Breen and Flinn were both in the original cohort of missionaries who started in 2017. After their two-year contract expired, three continued as full-time missionaries, while the other three chose not to stay and were replaced by new hires. Rector Collierville, TN

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe Orange County Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division (NPRD) empowers citizens to make their neighborhoods a better place. The information and resources they share bridge the gap between people who want to help, and people who have the organization to help. From identifying where improvement is needed most, to drawing up revitalization strategies and finding project resources, the NPRD is at residents’ disposal.The First Step: Gathering InformationImproving neighborhood beautification, crime prevention, and emergency preparedness starts with you. So the NPRD ensures everything residents need to know about planning a neighborhood revitalization project is readily available. One way to learn about how to improve your neighborhood is by watching the NPRD sponsored series “Connecting Neighbors and Neighborhoods.” The half-hour program is both aired on Orange TV and archived on the NPRD website. Another way is to attend the free Community Connections workshops. There, you can network with the community, participate in hands-on learning, and receive valuable information to take back into their communities. Workshop topics range from Homeowners Association and Condo Board of Directors certification training, to how to save energy and money, and engage your community. They usually occur on the second Saturday of each month, and registration, as well as a full list of upcoming workshops, can be found by visiting this link or calling (407) 836-2934.The Second Step: Getting StartedThe next step is organizing a group and planning the project.

The victim advised Gant approached her outside of her home while she was in her vehicle. Gant had a military green rifle with him, threatened her with it, and stole her grey Ford Escape. The victim fled into her home.The victim called 911 and the information was broadcast across Apopka police radio channels. A school resource sergeant saw the vehicle drive by the area of Apopka High School and, with other officers, attempted a stop on the suspect, at which time he fled in the Escape.A pursuit followed and in the area of Roger Williams and Orange Blossom Trail, officers conducted a “PIT” maneuver (a technique to immobilize the suspect vehicle) which ended the vehicle pursuit. The suspect fled the vehicle into thick woods in the area and then into a nearby occupied home. The suspect’s rifle was left in the vehicle when he fled.The occupants of the home fled the house upon his entry. A perimeter was established immediately by patrol and support officers to contain the suspect within the area. Apopka K-9 units, Orange County Sheriff’s Office K-9, as well as Orange County’s helicopter, responded to assist in the search. Suspect Gant fled the home after he changed his clothes and was subsequently located in a wooded area directly behind the residence he entered.Gant was taken into custody. Gant complained of a medical issue and was transported by the Apopka Fire Department to the hospital for evaluation. He will be turned over to Orange County Corrections upon the conclusion of Apopka’s investigation.The Apopka Police Department responded to a call this morning in which a man armed with an assault rifle carjacked a woman, the APD said. After a car chase and pursuit, the suspect was arrested by the APD. He is currently being interviewed at the APD Headquarters.“Kudos to our dispatch unit,” said APD Chief Michael McKinley. “After being notified of the crime, they put the vehicle description out. The Apopka High School (SRO) Officer left the high school to do an area check and saw the vehicle traveling southbound on Vick Road.Officers chased the carjacker, whose identity hasn’t been released, for several miles on South Orange Blossom Trail, according to Sgt. Kim Walsh, the Public Information Officer for the APD.“The suspect sped and drove in the wrong direction during a portion of the pursuit,” Walsh said.“He led us on a chase,” said Mc Kinley. “He traveled in the wrong direction briefly on 441. We made sure we did not pursue him in that direction. We kept the community safe while at the same time apprehending him.” Police said the driver crashed the stolen car into a police cruiser after an officer performed a pit maneuver. Investigators said the suspect ran into a nearby home, stole a cellphone and changed clothes before running away. Police said the family in the home was uninjured.“The suspect ran from the home and was taken into custody,” Walsh said.McKinley was impressed with the effort of the APD.“Our control units had a very quick response as well as our tactical units, and our criminal investigation units,” he said. “They secured the area, and with the help of the Orange County Sheriff’s K-9 unit, and the APD K-9 unit, we were able to locate the individual, and he is now under arrest.”No other details were given.

Located barely a few meters from Havana Bay, the studio for Santa Clara residence involved a complex research process. This process was mainly focused on discovering the rules to follow within the regulatory framework in the area, all of which allowed us later to add two levels above the original structure of the building.Save this picture!© Nestor Kim EnríquezRecommended ProductsCorporate ApplicationsCymat Technologies Ltd.Mallorca Congress Centre – Alusion™ Stabilized Aluminum FoamWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Nestor Kim EnríquezThe residence is part of a corner-building unity from the 19th century with patrimonial value. To turn it back into a boutique guesthouse of four levels, incorporating new communal spaces and extending the housing depth of the building, the undefined typology of the urban area, as well as the exceptional condition of the original building of having two different props in two different spaces (double order), were also taken into account. The addition of the new volume is conditioned by the surrounding heights. The new spaces were managed to be naturally ventilated and lighted without being detrimental to the neighboring buildings. The communal places, such as courtyards, inner galleries and corridors were reinterpreted in the new project, paying special attention to the new passageways, which are designed to yield prominence to the bedrooms, at the same time as intimate and private spaces are generated, a new landscape is built and the user is protected from the elements.Save this picture!© Nestor Kim EnríquezSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nestor Kim EnríquezAll finishes, woodwork, ironwork and furniture in this project are determined by a close relationship of collaboration established among local artists, artisans, carpenters and ironworkers.
