You see, back in the late 1950s, my late father was ordained to both the Diaconate and Priesthood by the late Bishop Ronald Owen Hall in St. John’s Cathedral on Hong Kong Island. Between 1966-71, he served as an Assistant Chaplain with the Missions to Seamen (now Missions to Seafarers) in the Diocese of Sydney, Australia. Back in those more innocent times, the seafarers were allowed off their ships while it was in port, and could visit the Mission’s center, watch movies on the big screen (the VCR was not born for another decade), attend dances, Chapel Services, and counsel with the clergy.In the fullness of time, long before the birth of the internet, my father had an organized system whereby he could hand out material in the form of a primitive version of a correspondence course to prepare seafarers who desired baptism. On their return voyage, these catechumen generally had many questions for discussions about our Christian faith. Once baptized, seafarers were presented with material to prepare them for Confirmation. The parish church closest to the seafarer’s home were always kept informed about these new convert. The Bible Society and Scripture Union, were two supportive organizations who made presentations to those Baptized and Confirmed.By chance, in the Spring Semester of 1993, I taught at Christ School in Arden, in the depth of your home Diocese of Western North Carolina. Since this was my first experience of living with Americans, the charm of the enormous Christ School campus (especially when we were snowed in from civilization), Southern Hospitality, Sweet Tea, Chili, and Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher NC, will always hold a special place in my heart.May God continue to bless you in your wonderful ministry.

Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Jobs & Calls [Episcopal News Service] Will Bryant from the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina has decided to spend a year as a Young Adult Service Corps volunteer working with the Mission to Seafarers in Hong Kong.Every day Will visits the seafarers either in port or out at the anchorage, bringing them the latest news in their own language, phone cards so they can call home, and a welcome respite from their sometimes dangerous and often lonely lifestyle.Many of the seafarers spend 8-10 months each year away from home to provide for their families. Hong Kong is just one of 260 ports throughout the world where Mission to Seafarers has a presence. Established in 1856, it is one of the oldest Anglican mission agencies, bringing much-needed support to those who work at sea. — Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem, Suheil Dawani, met the Mayor of Bethlehem, Anton Salman, last Friday, Feb. 22, to discuss plans for a World Anglican Centre. “Please keep its eventual construction in your prayers,” the Diocese of Jerusalem said on its website, adding: “there are still many obstacles to overcome.”Read the full article here.

For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.” Claude Monet. Save this picture!© Adrià Goula The project for this house emerged from a very simple premise, to build on a very steep piece of land with a gradient of almost 100%, boasting wonderful views and on a tight budget. Save this picture!© Adrià Goula It was this highly complicated plot of land, surrounded by pine trees, that defined a good part of this project. The land, and its perspectives, constantly changing as the hours pass, the colour of the trees, the movement of sun and shadows… Save this picture!© Adrià Goula On the one hand, the reduced dimensions of the plot and its complex orography, and on the other the desire to leave the minimum imprint on the land led us to seek out a floorplan which, matching the trees that surround it, emerges from a trunk well anchored to the land and opens up in braches on each floor, in such a way that each branch becomes the terrace of the upper level at the same time as it becomes the porch of the lower one. Save this picture!© Adrià Goula All this helps create a very formal building, with huge cantilevers facing out to emptiness, the woods and the sea which lie before it. A structure which opens up to these views and the sun, and which thanks to the terraces and the porches confuse the interior with the exterior.

Justice S. K. Panigrahi observed thus while granting bail to an accused on the ground of parity. The judge said that he is painstakingly deviating from the “No-tolerance approach” because of the fact that the co-accused who was placed quite worse than the petitioner has been enlarged on bail.The Judge observed that despite strict provisions, the recorded crime rate under the NDPS Act has increased in the country more during the last ten years.The order disposing the bail application starts with the following quote of Dr. Oche Otorkpa: “Drug addiction is like a curse and until it is broken, its victim will perpetually remain in the shackles of bondage”. The court observed:The furtive smuggling and trafficking of drugs linked it to a host of social ills, including involvement in crime, destabilization and decline in family relationship, kinship, neighbourhoods etc. More importantly, it has resulted in rampant substance abuse by the youth. The Parliament has passed the NDPS Act with an objective to arrest the menace by making the deterrent effect more stringent so that the guilty is appropriately punished. The said Act seeks to 2 control both the demand and supply of drugs by criminalizing production, trafficking and use. It prohibits the manufacture, production, possession, consumption, sale, purchase, trade, use, import and export of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, except for medical or scientific purposes. The Judiciary also saddled with the responsibility of strictly adhering to the law so that the traffickers of drugs do not go unpunished and the growth boom of trafficking is checked. The trafficking and smuggling have flared sporadically in the recent years transcending the geographical boundaries. The case in hand typifies this alarming trend.The Court added that the cost of drug abuse is enormous and multifaceted which poses severe threat to the social fabric of the country and that instances of drug abuse is required to be dealt with a strict ‘hard on Crime’ attitude. The judge added:Drug addiction is a complex illness with far-reaching consequences for those who know, work with, and support the drug-addicted individual. Families suffer due to cultural and social factors of drug behavior, including their own understanding of the disease process and the addict’s behavior due to drug abuse; draining of family resources, shrinking from responsibilities, sickness, and dysfunctional relationships, distortion of interpersonal family relationships, violence and death faced as a consequence of drug abuse. The cost of drug abuse is enormous and multifaceted which poses severe threat to the social fabric of the country. Ergo, instances of drug abuse is required to be dealt with a strict ‘hard on Crime’ attitude.The court also observed that lack of uniform sampling procedures adds to the overall inconsistency in sentencing for drug cases, more especially in pharmaceutical drugs like of cough syrup containing Codeine Phosphate. The judge, while disposing the bail application said:While strict liability provisions of the NDPS Act are considered deterrent, application of these provisions has not resulted in high punishment. Despite strict provisions, the recorded crime rate under the NDPS Act has increased in the country more during the last ten years. It is also equally disturbing to note that there is a disparate sentence in such kind of cases which is quite contrary to the notion of graded punishment prescribed under the law, as similar drug quantities witness varying degree of sentences.  This kind of ambiguity in the application of the law with regards to most drug abuse cases in the country still persists. As a negatively-defined category, intermediate quantity cases receive disparate sentences, due to the wide range of punishments available to a judge together with a lack of sentencing guidelines. This sort of inconsistencies problematises and affects the conviction rate in such crimes.Case name: Bikash Duria vs. State of OrissaCase no.: BLAPL No.2464 of 2020 Coram: Justice SK PanigrahiClick here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

This is an opportunity for people to come together to honor the men and women who died in service to our country and then spend time with their families.”Memorial Day Services will be held at 11 a.m. at Bicentennial Park in Troy and at Elam Cemetery in Elamville. The service at Bicentennial Park will be hosted by American Legion Post 70 in Troy. VFW Post 7055 will host the service at Elam Cemetery.Bob McLendon, Post 70 commander, said Memorial Day services are special because they honor those who died in service to their country.“On Veterans Days, we honor all of those who have served but Memorial Day is a more solemn occasion,” McLendon said. “At this service, we will read the names of all Pike Countians who died from combat wounds from World War I through Iraqi Freedom.”Bill Myrick, a Vietnam veteran and a longtime Veterans Affairs Service Officer, will be the featured speaker.Each year, Post 70 invites a veteran from a different war era to speak.McLendon owns Conecuh River Depot Military Museum and will have memorabilia from the Vietnam War period on display.The American Legion Post 70 Auxiliary will add names to the Memorial Wall at Bicentennial Park and also place a memorial wreath at the site.Also at an 11 a.m. service, VFW Post 7055 will host a Memorial Day service at Elam Cemetery at Elamville.Turner said the cemetery is of special significance in that more than 60 veterans are buried there.“Veterans as far back as the Civil War are buried at Elam Cemetery,” Turner said. “On Memorial Day, we will honor them and all veterans who gave their lives in service to our country.”State Sen. Billy Beasley of Barbour County will be the featured speaker at the Elam Cemetery service. Special music will also be a highlight of the service along with the laying of the memorial wreath.“After the services, we’ll have a covered dish lunch at Elam Baptist Church,” Turner said. “Everyone is invited.” Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By The Penny Hoarder Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
