The congregations’ members, who jokingly refer to themselves as “Lutherpalians,” now worship and serve the community as The Churches of the Nativity and Holy Comforter. That changes on Sunday, Nov. 6, when they celebrate their anniversary and lose the ‘es.’“It seems like we’ve been together forever,” said the Rev. David W. Eisenhuth, Holy Comforter’s pastor. “We now incorporate elements of the liturgies and hymns from both denominational traditions in a way that seems very natural. We are one church now, so we are losing the ‘es.’” The logo gets an update as well.The Rev. T. Stewart Lucas, Nativity’s rector, agreed. “Looking back, I guess I’m surprised that the skeptics gave it a chance, but they did,” he said. “But, when you are both grounded in the importance of worship, the scriptures and prayer, you understand that these are the things that really matter. Everything else is secondary.”That’s not to suggest there weren’t some hiccups along the way in combining the two congregations. “We had to counter the battle cry that ‘We’ve always done it this way’,” said Eisenhuth.For example, the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, or communion, was an early test of the congregations’ resolve. Holy Comforter traditionally had used leavened bread and offered wine or grape juice by chalice or tiny cups, while Nativity studiously used unleavened wafers and distributed only wine by chalice for The Lord’s Supper.The changes proved too difficult for a few members most committed to Episcopal or Lutheran orthodoxy or “denominationalism.” They have chosen to worship elsewhere. Their places have been filled by new members to Nativity and Holy Comforter, attracted by the friendliness of the joint congregation, where people of different racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds and sexual identities are welcomed.The two congregations maintain their status as separate legal entities. But, in almost every other aspect, they worship and minister together as one church body. Members of both congregations sing in the choir, handle the flower arrangements, serve on the Altar Guild, and share duties as ushers. Holy Comforter members stepped up to help at Nativity’s Annual Spring Fair, supporting a tradition that has continued for decades. Nativity members brought their sewing skills to Holy Comforter’s Christian Action Group, which makes beautiful quilts for distribution to the homeless.Attendance at Sunday worship services has roughly doubled what it had been prior to the partnership. “It feels good to have more people in the pews. We are more energetic and more creative as a combined church body,” said Lucas. “Two churches that were dwindling chose to come together. Now, we are rising.”The unusual pairing of churches from different denominations has garnered the attention of national church groups, not only Episcopal and Lutheran but other mainstream Christian denominations facing some of the same problems that had challenged Nativity and Holy Comforter. Teams of church leaders and academics have visited to learn firsthand what is going on in North Baltimore.“We have been a beacon for other churches that are struggling,” said Lucas. “Now we are looking out into the community to see where God wants us to do more ministry. We are about to purchase the 8000 square foot office building and parking lot next door. Who knows what God has in store for us next?”Eisenhuth added, “We had members who said they wanted a Lutheran worship service. What does that mean? Increasingly, denominations will become passé and not that important. We needed to overcome fear of the future, fear of change.”Both clergymen credited their respective bishops, from the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and the Delaware-Maryland Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, for permitting this experimental partnership to go forward.The congregation will celebrate their anniversary on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 10:30 a.m. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Youth Minister Lorton, VA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Bath, NC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Shreveport, LA Submit a Job Listing Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Posted Nov 2, 2016 TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Albany, NYlast_img read more

Reporter arrested over bullet-proof vest in topsy-turvy Thailand

first_img RSF_en Bullet-proof vests are meant to save your life but in Thailand they can get you arrested, as Hong Kong-based photo-journalist Hok-chun “Anthony” Kwan learned when officials at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport found a bullet-proof vest and helmet in his bags as he was about to fly home on 23 August. ThailandAsia – Pacific Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom August 26, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporter arrested over bullet-proof vest in topsy-turvy Thailand The authorities arrested Anthony Kwan on a charge of “possessing an illegal weapon” and, for the time being, are preventing him from returning to Hong Kong.Bullet-proof vests and helmets are regarded as controlled military equipment under Thailand’s 1987 Arms Control Act and users are supposed to have a licence issued by the defence ministry. The law is nonetheless rarely applied to the many reporters who use bullet-proof vests while covering Thailand’s frequent political protests.Kwan was freed on bail on the afternoon of 24 August but his passport has been confiscated and he is forbidden to leave Thailand pending formal indictment. His lawyer, Pawinee Chumsri of Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, said he has been told to report to the court every 12 days until the prosecutor’s office decides whether or not to prosecute.He could be tried by a military court and is facing a possible five-year jail sentence or a fine of 50,000 bahts (about 1,230 euros).“We urge the judicial authorities to rescind the order that prevents Anthony Kwan from leaving Thailand and to drop the charges against him,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“It is unacceptable that a journalist trying to protect himself in a dangerous environment should be prosecuted in this way. Physical safety measures such as bullet-proof vests and helmets are essential for media personnel. We expect the Thai authorities to allow reporters to protect themselves instead of making protection more complicated.” Deloire added: “We also point out that journalists who apply for a licence to wear protective equipment rarely get a response from the competent government authorities, which shows that they are being hypocritical. Reporters must be able to avoid being shot like rabbits.”Kwan, 29, works for Initium Media, a Chinese-language news website based in Hong Kong. The website sent him to Bangkok to cover the aftermath of the Erawan shrine bombing, whose 22 fatal victims included two young people from Hong Kong.Media outlets and reporters were repeatedly targeted by both soldiers and demonstrators during the frequent clashes between the different political factions and the army before the May 2014 coup.Hiroyuki Muramoto, 44, a Japanese cameraman working for Reuters, was shot dead during violent clashes between the army and deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s “Red Shirt” supporters in Bangkok on 10 April 2010. Italian freelance photographer Fabio Polenghi, 45, was killed in similar circumstances on 19 May 2010. Neither was wearing a bullet-proof vest.The situation of foreign journalists has been very precarious in Thailand since the military coup. They have reported finding it increasingly difficult to obtain or renew work visas and accreditation, while the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of Thailand has been the target of repeated pressure and intimidation by the junta.Media personnel, especially foreign investigative reporters, were already exposed to threats before the military takeover, but the threats have been exacerbated by the political tension created by the military.Thailand is ranked 134th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The Bench of Justice Saral Srivastava was hearing the plea of petitioners (Woman-Man) who sought a direction upon the respondents, not to interfere in their married life and also for protection of their lives and liberty. Claims of the Petitioners The petitioners claimed before the Court that they are adults and are living together out of their own freewill. It was stated before the Court that Petitioner no. 1 (Woman) decided to follow the Muslim religion and as such, she converted herself to being Muslim and after conversion, the Woman solemnized marriage with petitioner no. 2 (Muslim Man). Further, they contended before the Court that for the said reason, respondent no. 4 and his other family members have got annoyed and there is serious danger to the lives of the petitioners as they are being threatened and harassed. In support of their age, while the Woman submitted her High School Marks Sheet, the Man submitted his Aadhar Card. Having perused the documents, the Court found that both the petitioners are major. Court’s Order Noting that “where the two individuals having attained the age of majority, are living together, nobody is entitled to interfere in their peaceful life”, the Court issued direction to respondent no. 2, i.e., Superintendent of Police, Bijnor to look into the grievance of the petitioners and provide protection, if necessary. The matter has been posted for further hearing on 08.02.2021 and by which date, the Man has been asked to present before the Court, a Fixed Deposit receipt of Rs. 3,00,000/- in favour of the Woman. Related news The UP Government on Thursday (07th January) filed a counter affidavit in response to a batch of PILs challenging its controversial Love-Jihad Ordinance. In its reply, the Government has claimed that the Ordinance is aimed at preventing any form of unlawful conversion actuated by elements of misrepresentation, force, undue influence, coercion, allurement, etc. “The Constitution of India abhors any form of forceful conversion particularly in matters of religion. Being a secular State, it becomes the foremost duty of the State to protect its citizens from any kind of unlawful or forceful conversion so that the liberty of thought, faith, belief and worship as well as equality of status stands safeguarded thereby assuring the dignity of the individuals,” the Government submitted. The Government has also stated that the recent Division Bench judgment of the High Court in the Salamat Ansari case needs to reconsidered as “it has not dealt with the question relating to inter-fundamental right and intra-fundamental rights as it has also skipped the attention of the Hon’ble Division Bench as to what will be the scope of liberty of an individual qua the societal interest.” [NOTE: In Salamat Ansari case, the High Court had held that “Right to live with a person of his/her choice irrespective of religion professed by them, is intrinsic to right to life and personal liberty.”] It may be noted that on December 18, 2020, a Chief Justice led Division Bench of the High Court issued notices on a batch of PILs challenging the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020, and had asked the UP Government to file a counter affidavit by January 4. Recently, the High Court stayed the arrest of a man, Nadeem, booked by the UP Police under the said law. Allahabad High Court Stays Arrest Of Man Booked Under UP Ordinance Against Religious Conversion For Marriage A Division Bench comprising of Justices Pankaj Naqvi and Vivek Agarwal asked the UP Police to not take any coercive action against the accused in this case until the next date of hearing. The Court said, “Victim is admittedly an adult who understands her well-being. She as well as the petitioner have a fundamental right to privacy and being grown up adults who are aware of the consequences of their alleged relationship.”Case Title – Smt.
