Chanoine Brian Grieves, ancien directeur des ministères paix et justice de l’Église épiscopale, qui a travaillé pour trois évêques présidents, dont l’Évêque Browning.« Motivé par la compassion, il a lancé l’Église épiscopale sur une voie qui allait permettre aux gays et aux lesbiennes de sortir du placard et de servir ouvertement l’église » nous confie le Rév. Grieves à ENS depuis sa résidence de Hawaï, où l’Évêque Browning avait été évêque diocésain avant de devenir évêque président.Lors de sa première conférence de presse après son élection en tant qu’évêque président en septembre 1985, une question fut posée à l’Évêque Browning sur une résolution de la Convention générale qui avait clairement pour but d’empêcher les gays d’être ordonnés, se souvient le Rév. Grieves. « Il répondit en disant qu’il ne pensait pas que l’église devait légiférer à l’encontre de quiconque ».En 1988, lors de sa première Convention générale en tant qu’évêque président, il accueillit avec plaisir l’exposition d’un patchwork sur le SIDA et mit au défi tous les évêques de développer une relation personnelle avec un séropositif, se citant lui-même comme modèle. « Jusque-là, les gens atteints du SIDA avaient été en grande partie tenus à l’écart et ignorés » poursuit le Rév. Grieves.Bruce Garner, président du groupe de défense des LGBT Integrity USA et ancien membre du Conseil exécutif du Diocèse d’Atlanta, dit que l’Église épiscopale a perdu l’un de ses géants.Au début des années 1990, lors de son précédent mandat en tant que président d’Integrity, Bruce Garner s’est souvenu d’avoir rencontré l’Évêque Browning et rendu hommage à l’ouverture d’esprit avec laquelle il parlait des questions de pleine inclusion des LGBT dans la vie de l’église.« J’allais devenir le premier président d’Integrity à rencontrer un évêque président. J’étais un peu nerveux mais je n’avais pas besoin de l’être. L’Évêque Browning m’a donné une accolade affectueuse et s’est assis auprès de moi sur un sofa dans son bureau pendant que nous parlions » nous dit-il. « Une autre première et l’expression de sa vision d’aucun exclu a été d’accepter d’être notre orateur et invité lors à la convention Integrity suivante. Lorsqu’il déclara du haut de la chaire… qu’il se fichait vraiment de ce que pensait la presse, nous avons eu un aperçu de son ardent soutien et de son refus que nous soyons exclus par l’église ».L’Archevêque Francisco de Assis da Silva, primat de l’Église anglicane épiscopale du Brésil, dit que l’Évêque Browning a légué « un héritage théologique et pastoral précieux à la Communion anglicane en conduisant l’église en toute sécurité, au delà des frontières de tant de questions taboues et difficiles. D’une manière pratique et généreuse il jeta des ponts avec des églises sœurs, à travers la concrétisation de ce qui s’appelle « Partenaires dans la mission ».L’Archevêque Da Silva dit qu’il était reconnaissant à Browning d’avoir rapproché encore davantage leurs deux provinces qui avaient des relations historiques remontent à 1890, particulièrement à la suite des difficultés que l’Église anglicane épiscopale du Brésil avait connues après avoir obtenu son autonomie de l’Église épiscopale en 1965.« L’Évêque Browning et l’ancien primat [brésilien] Dom Olavo Ventura Luiz furent à l’origine du renouveau dans les relations entre nos églises, qui pendant un certain temps s’étaient assoupies, et les églises mère et fille reconstruirent leurs relations affectives et historiques » poursuit l’Archevêque da Silva. « Nous voulons exprimer notre gratitude pour la vie et le ministère de l’Évêque Edmond Browning, qui était vraiment le “Berger des brebis”, soutenant tous les baptisés dans leurs ministères et les encourageant à exercer leurs dons ! »L’Évêque Browning fut installé comme évêque président quelques mois avant que Desmond Tutu ne soit élu archevêque du Cap et il prit sa retraite un an après Desmond Tutu. « Je ne pouvais pas souhaiter autant de soutien de la part d’un ami – au plan personnel et pour notre église – à la hauteur de notre lutte contre l’apartheid » nous dit Desmond Tutu. « Patti (son épouse) et lui ont apporté leur témoignages en faveur de la justice partout, que ce soit en Afrique du Sud, en Palestine, en Amérique centrale ou ailleurs. J’ai eu le privilège de voyager au Nicaragua et au Panama en sa compagnie et celle de, Michael Peers du Canada et Orland Lindsay des Caraïbes lors de moments difficiles pour ces pays et leurs relations avec les États-Unis. Il s’y exprima en faveur de la justice, de la paix et de la démocratie de façon superbe et courageuse.« Je dois tellement à tellement de gens, et notamment à Ed et Patti. Puisse Ed reposer en paix et s’élever dans la gloire ».L’Évêque Browning marqua l’histoire en consacrant la Révérende Barbara Harris du Diocèse du Massachusetts première évêque féminine de l’Église épiscopale et de la Communion anglicane.« La veille au soir avant d’imposer les mains sur la tête de Barbara Harris et de l’ordonner première femme évêque, il émut l’assemblée en disant « ces mains sont prêtes !» dit le Rév. Grieves.On se souviendra également de l’Évêque Browning pour avoir sensibilisé l’Église épiscopale à l’injustice de l’occupation par Israël, du peuple palestinien, une cause que son épouse Patti avait également soutenue par des visites annuelles en Terre Sainte, poursuit le Rév. Grieves.Chacun des trois Évêques présidents qui ont succédé à l’Évêque Browning – les Évêques Frank Griswold, Katharine Jefferts Schori et Michael Curry – ont rendu hommage à sa vie et à son ministère dans un communiqué de presse du Bureau des relations publiques de l’Église épiscopale.« L’Église épiscopale cherche fidèlement à véritablement devenir « une maison de prière pour tous » comme l’a dit Jésus en citant les prophètes hébreux et c’est en effet le cas car l’Évêque Président Browning nous a enseigné que l’église doit être un lieu où il n’y a pas d’exclus » dit l’Évêque Curry, le 27ème Évêque Président, dans le communiqué de presse. « Cet héritage impérissable aide encore à libérer plus d’un captif. C’est la preuve que Dieu n’en a pas encore fini avec nous, car de temps à autre des géants spirituels marchent encore parmi nous en tant que rappels vivants ».Un grand nombre de condoléances et d’hommages ont été partagés sur les médias sociaux, dont un de la part de, l’ancien évêque auxiliaire pour les forces armées et les ministères fédéraux, George Packard qui a décrit l’Évêque Browning comme « infaillible et fidèle, il nous a conduit à supprimer les barrières, même lorsque nous étions hésitants et manquions de courage et d’amour ».Le Révérendissime Rév. Steven Charleston, ancien officier d’état-major pour les ministères amérindiens, évêque du Diocèse épiscopal d’Alaska de 1991 à 1996 puis doyen de l’Episcopal Divinity School, dit de lui qu’il était «  véritablement un saint, rempli de vision et de courage ».L’Évêque avait travaillé pour étendre les ministères de l’église auprès des Amerindiens, formant un comité national novateur composé uniquement de membres autochtones de l’église.Owanah Anderson de la nation Choctaw et responsable de l’Église épiscopale autochtone, dans l’équipe de l’Évêque Browning, a dit en apprenant son décès, « l’Évêque Browning était le meilleur ami que mon peuple ait jamais eu ».Le Révérend Grieves poursuivit : « Cela résume probablement le sentiment de la plupart des fidèles de l’église qui ont eu la chance de le connaître ».L’Évêque Browning « a inspiré notre génération en tant que prêtre missionnaire, évêque international et évêque primat » nous confie Christopher Epting, ancien évêque de l’Iowa qui a siégé au Conseil exécutif avec l’Évêque Browning pendant trois ans. « Lorsqu’il a présidé à ma consécration, ma seule prière était de suivre ses traces. Sa contribution à cette église et à la cause du Christ est immense. Puisse-t-il reposer ce jour dans le paradis de Dieu ».Bruce Garner d’Integrity ajouta que l’Évêque Browning « se repose maintenant dans le giron de Dieu qui l’a créé, racheté et soutenu durant tout un ministère long et productif. Il a maintenant entendu les paroles « très bien, serviteur bon et fidèle ». Puisse-t-il reposer en paix et s’élever dans la gloire. Puissions-nous réfléchir à cette disparition alors même que nous célébrons un ministère dont nous avons reçu des bienfaits innombrables ».La nécrologie officielle de Sheryl Kujawa Holbrook, auteur de « Heart of a Pastor, A Life of Edmond Lee Browning », est disponible ici.L’ENS a rassemblé ici les hommages et les nécrologies en mémoire de l’Évêque Edmond Lee Browning.— Matthew Davies est rédacteur et journaliste de l’Episcopal News Service.

The light of the abundant tropical Sun falls on the white volume of the top floor of the house, penetrating the holes of the hollowed elements and covering the floor of the interior space. Thus, the design of spatialized lace is formed from the shadows and solar rays. The effect is multiplied throughout the ambient, making a construction from the light itself. Throughout the days, throughout the months, the hollowed-out elements take on different forms with the incidence of the sun; at night, this effect once again is transformed; in a continuous process of metamorphosis, its form changes from the light.Save this picture!© Nelson KonRecommended ProductsWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroThe soft volumetric geometry of the hollowed-out elements comprising the walls is a complex construction, made with infinite curved lines. The modular element, a work of art, was designed by the Austrian-American Erwin Hauer who, since 1950, has conceived and made sculptures for architectural space. His minimalist elements dialogue with the architecture and remind us of some traces of Brazilian modern architecture. The curved lines, designed with perfection nod to the architecture of Brasilia by Niemeyer; furthermore, the concrete modules descend from the Cobogós, which lends its name to the house, created in Recife and diffused by Lucio Costa in delicate references to colonial architecture.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe Cobogó House is a modern house in which the art of Erwin Hauer can be used naturally, as a part of the entire architecture. In the play of mounting pure volumes, made of white spackling paste, concrete and wood; lies, together with the terrace garden, the volume constructed from the hollowed elements by Erwin Hauer. Inside this space, there is a multiple-use living room and a small spa.Save this picture!© Nelson KonOn the ground floor the living room connects entirely with the garden, where there is a small artificial lake. Fish and plants help maintain the biological balance of the pool without the use of chemical products that assail the environment. This environmental thought permeated the entire project which incorporated principles of sustainability established by rigid standards, similar to certifications. In the house, there is a great concern to use recycling apparatus and reduce water consumption; rationalize and organize the construction to minimize the impacts; use devices for energy efficiency and optimization; install solar heating plaques; besides using only certified, recycled or ecologically correct material. The use of this knowledge together with architecture that respects the local climate resulted in a house having excellent inner comfort.Save this picture!© Nelson KonIn both the back living room, which on one side opens to a large front garden and on the other to a patio of trees, and the bedrooms, the inner ambients are shaded by wooden mashrabiyas that make possible good ventilation with internal shading. The panels can open entirely as can the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, diluting, in this way, the transition between internal and external space. On the last floor, the work of art thought of as architectural space is the symbol of the house which, just as the enormous Jabuticabeira of the garden, constructs a singular space and a reflexive atmosphere that invokes a brief contemplative silence.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessTaliesin – A Guided 360 Virtual TourArticlesUFO ArchitectureArticles Share Houses Architects: Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Save this picture!© Nelson Kon+ 41 Share 2011 Photographs “COPY” Cobogó House / Studiomk27 – Marcio Kogan Area:  1000 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Brazil Cobogó House / Studiomk27 – Marcio KoganSave this projectSaveCobogó House / Studiomk27 – Marcio Kogan Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/175686/cobogo-house-marcio-kogan Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/175686/cobogo-house-marcio-kogan Clipboardlast_img read more

However, there are concerns on the horizon that could continue to impact the balance between supply and demand when it comes to housing.The HMI for March shows builder confidence at 70, one point down from February’s revised score.“Builders’ optimism continues to be fueled by growing consumer demand for housing and confidence in the market,” said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel. “However, builders are reporting challenges in finding buildable lots, which could limit their ability to meet this demand.”Based on a monthly survey NAHB conducts, the HMI gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair,” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average,” or “low to very low.” Any number over 50 indicates that more surveyed builders viewed conditions as good than poor.The HMI component gauging current sales conditions held steady at 77. The measure of confidence in sales over the next six months decreased by two points, settling in at 78. Finally, the score for buyer traffic fell three points to 51.The West boasted the highest three-month moving average at 79, down two points. The South was next in line, dropping a single point to hit 73. The Midwest score decreased four points to settle at 68. The Northeast was up a single point, but its score still only totaled 57.NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz said, “A strong labor market, rising incomes, and a growing economy are boosting demand for homeownership even as interest rates rise. With these economic fundamentals in place, the single-family sector should continue to make gains at a gradual pace in the months ahead.” Subscribelast_img read more

USA: Chief of Naval Personnel Visits Naval Station Norfolk

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USA: Chief of Naval Personnel Visits Naval Station Norfolk View post tag: chief View post tag: Defense September 13, 2013 View post tag: Norfolk Vice Adm. Bill Moran, chief of naval personnel (CNP), visited Naval Station Norfolk to talk with Sailors and participate in Sep. 11 memorial ceremonies.Arriving Sep. 10, Moran spent his time discussing manning issues affecting the Navy and talking with Sailors before speaking during the Sept. 11 memorial events.“We’ve been out of balance for a couple of years now,” said Moran when discussing manning concerns. “We’re on the road to recovery, but we still have a ways to go.”Moran said that even though they are working on solutions to the manning problems it will take time for the new personnel to be trained and begin serving in the fleet.Part of Moran’s visit was to participate in memorial ceremonies commemorating the terrorist attacks of Sep. 11, 2001.“It’s a monumental anniversary for us, much like Pearl Harbor was for folks of that generation. It’s an opportunity for us to reflect on when our nation was attacked in many locations, our response to that attack and what we have done for the past 12 years as a result of that attack,” he said.Moran was particularly interested in visiting amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington (LPD 24) because of its significant connection to the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon.“It’s a great opportunity to connect with a ship that was named after one of those attacks, the USS Arlington,” said Moran.Moran expressed his excitement of being able to spend time with the crew of Arlington in order to share stories about the ship as well as learn about the new connections the Sailors have made to 9/11 since checking onboard.A big concern among Sailors was the future of the G.I. Bill and tuition assistance. Moran stressed that the future of those programs is by no means in jeopardy and are not going to be changing.“There is no difference from what you have today. The CNO is absolutely committed to tuition assistance,” said Moran.A top priority of the visit was to inform Sailors so that they don’t feel like their problems or concerns are unimportant or are being overlooked.“My job is to make sure we are taking care of you, both in pay and compensation but also the training and sea/shore rotations that are important to every single one of you,” said Moran.[mappress]Press Release, September 13, 2013 View post tag: Defence View post tag: Naval Personnel USA: Chief of Naval Personnel Visits Naval Station Norfolkcenter_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: visits Share this article Authorities View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: stationlast_img read more
