Canon Joann Saylors has accepted a call as canon for mission amplification the Diocese of Texas announced April 4. Bishop Andy Doyle noted that after an extensive search drew applications from across the country and Canada, the successful candidate was “right next door.”Saylors, who will join the diocesan staff July 1, is currently canon for deployment and congregational development in the Diocese of West Texas. Her pre-seminary background as a CPA working in project management and team leadership, combined with her ministry in a parish and experience in congregational development, “distinguished her in a supremely talented field of candidates,” said Doyle.“I am excited about Bishop Doyle’s vision for the future of the Church and grateful for the opportunity to help reimagine the place of the Church in the world, facilitating new and creative ways to live into God’s mission with the world,” Saylors said.“Canon Saylors is the perfect fit for this critical position,” Doyle added, noting, “This was not an easy brief to fill, but I’m delighted that she shares our excitement for the diocesan vision and brings substantive giftedness and specific experience for the ministry that lies ahead.”The Rev. Kai Ryan, canon to the ordinary and diocesan chief operating officer led the yearlong search. “Joann understands deeply the power of Christ’s love to change lives and communities and will add to Mary MacGregor’s excellent legacy,” Ryan said.Saylors will lead the Mission Amplification Team’s five missioners to assist leaders and congregations to plant new communities of faith, both church plants and missional communities, and to nurture congregations and their leaders. The team provides coaching and consulting, as well as assessments and programs like cultural competency training and formation events. Additionally, the diocesan team helps congregations strategize and engage in effective action in response to opportunities and challenges. With the arrival of the new canon, the Mission Amplification Team will be able to support more congregations to enhance and expand their ministries to have an impact on their communities.Saylors has served in her West Texas role since 2012, when she and her husband Rick relocated from Church of the Redeemer, Irving, in the Diocese of Dallas. She received her Master of Divinity from Seminary of the Southwest in Austin in 2010. Prior to ordination, Saylors was a financial systems and project management consultant. Born in Pennsylvania and raised in Dallas, she graduated from the University of Texas as a Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts degree in the Plan II Honors Program and a bachelor’s degree in business administration in honors finance and accounting. She remains a licensed CPA.  She has served ex officio on a number of diocesan committees and as a member of the Board of Good Samaritan Community Services in San Antonio. She and Rick enjoy books, travel and spoiling their three dogs, as well as their quest to find the perfect breakfast taco.

Irish hearts broken by All Blacks’ last gasp converted try

first_imgMonday Nov 25, 2013 Irish hearts broken by All Blacks’ last gasp converted try New Zealand came from 19-0 down to beat Ireland 24-22 in an incredible game of rugby in Dublin on Sunday. With the win the All Blacks cement the record of the first ever top tier Test side in the professional era to win every match in a calendar year.ADVERTISEMENTThe visitors had to dig deep to snatch a late win, with replacement Ryan Crotty going over with time up. The TMO had to check both of the last two passes to see if they were forward, and once the try was awarded, Aaron Cruden had two shots at goal. This just wasn’t meant to be for Ireland.They shot off to an early lead though, and the home crowd thought the impossible was happening as Ireland led 22-7 at halftime thanks to tries from Conor Murray, Rory Best and Rob Kearney. They didn’t score a point in the second half though, and Jonny Sexton missed a late penalty kick.“I thought if that had gone over it would have been game over but instead it missed and I could feel our players get a lift from that,” said 124 Test All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. “The Irish guys then tried to eat up time but I have always felt as a player that can backfire and so it did here.”Crotty’s try tied things up at 22-22, with Cruden tasked with attempting the conversion. He missed the first kick, but the Irish players charged too early, so referee Nigel Owens – who contributed greatly to a freeflowing game – allowed Cruden to have another shot, which he duly slotted.In the history books this will go down as a 27th loss for Ireland against New Zealand, and while they have one draw to look back fondly on, this was an absolute heartbreaker for fans and players.“This is probably the low point, for me, in my rugby career,” Gordon Darcy told irishrugby.ie. “That is one of the toughest games I have ever played in. They are not walking away from that saying that was an easy game.ADVERTISEMENT“We talked a lot about the body language. I’d say over 50% of the game we won the body language battle that was going on. They had the hands on hips. They were blowing out their ass and we were winning those battles. You just have to be a little more clinical maybe,” he added.The fairytale year for the All Blacks ended magically, almost defying belief. They’ve now won 14 from 14, and having taken an approach that involves blooding young players and rotating their squad regularly, this group looks well placed two years out from the next World Cup.The Irish deserve massive plaudits though, and Steve Hansen was quick to pay them their dues.“I’d like to compliment Ireland on a sensational performance, they rattled us and had us 15 points down. They were outstanding,” he said. “That wasn’t in the script, that is for sure. It [the manner of victory] was special and is a great achievement. It has been a great year.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Around the world, people stand with Gaza against Israeli massacres

first_imgJuly 15 — People from all around the world and some governments have rallied to the side of the Palestinian people in Gaza, who are under relentless attack from the U.S.-armed Israeli state. Here is a small sample of what has been taking place worldwide. (Also see report on Africa on page 10.)VenezuelaFrom Venezuela, speaking from a People’s Power Assembly in Yaracuy state, President Nicolás Maduro said, “They want to exterminate the Palestinian people to remove them from the last inch of their territory. The concept that the corrupt Israeli government works by is extermination, because its war aims at making a people disappear. Venezuela stands with Palestine.”Legislators in Venezuela called for a protest demonstration against the Israeli attacks for July 14, following a gathering by popular organizations on July 10. (correodelorinoco.gob.ve)In Buenos Aires, Argentina, protesters in solidarity with Palestine held a demonstration in front of the Israeli Embassy on the afternoon of July 14.EcuadorThe same day in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, some hundreds demonstrated in front of the Israeli Embassy. A placard called for no economic agreements between Ecuador’s government and Israel.The Palestine-Nicaragua Solidarity Committee, which includes many people from the Palestinian community living in Nicaragua, the Nicaraguan government and other community organizations, mobilized on July 14 to stand in solidarity with the heroic Palestinian people. They condemned Israeli genocide in Gaza and demanded that the criminal attacks stop immediately. (Georgio Trucci, nicaraguaymasespanol.blogspot.com)NicaraguaPro-Palestinian organizations in El Salvador demonstrated in front of the building housing the Israeli Embassy in San Salvador, the capital. The demonstrators carried Palestinian flags, photos of victims of the bombing in Gaza and placards with slogans like “Israel is terrorist” or “Israel murderers.” They also painted similar messages on the sidewalk in front of the building. (noticias.terra.com, July 14)In Mexico’s capital city on July 11, social organizations, unions, students and community organizations used social media for a Coordination in Solidarity with Palestine. They gathered in front of the Secretariat of Foreign Relations to demand an end to the genocide in the Gaza Strip and that the Mexican government speak out against the bombardment of the Palestinian people. (somoselmedio.org, July 11)Led by a banner that read, “Silence is complicity,” some 1,000 people, many from Chile’s Palestinian community, marched July 12 through the center of Santiago, the capital. They demanded an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories. (elnuevoherald.com, July 12)In France, the European country with the largest number of Arabs, some 10,000 people demonstrated July 13 in solidarity with the Gaza Palestinians. A group carried an enormous Palestinian flag, while others chanted, “Israel, stop killing children.” (diariolasamericas.com)On July 11, demonstrators in Athens, Greece, gathered in front of the Israeli Embassy. A report from the Federation of Greek Women says their organization’s demands were:• Stop the continuous air raids against the people of Palestine.• The Israeli army of occupation and the settlers must abandon the occupied Palestinian territories.• Release all the political prisoners from Israeli jails and let all the Palestinians return to their homes.• Cancel the military drills, as well as all agreements of military cooperation with Israel.• We call for an independent, viable, fully sovereign Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, with  East Jerusalem as its capital.Demonstrations in solidarity with Gaza took part or were scheduled in all regions of the Spanish state, from Bilbao in the Basque Country to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia to Barcelona in Catalonia and in the Canary Islands. On July 14, some 500 people of different nationalities filled the area near the Israeli Embassy in Madrid, the capital, in a demonstration. The protesters chanted, “Long live the struggle of the Palestinian people!” and “You Zionists are the terrorists!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sanctions Kill protests

first_imgOrganized popular resistance has made it increasingly difficult for U.S. imperialism to impose its will around the world through military intervention. From Iran to Venezuela, from People’s Korea to Zimbabwe, working and oppressed people are fighting back.In the face of this growing resistance, the U.S. is increasingly relying on weapons other than direct military assaults to achieve its aims. Chief among these is the imposition of sanctions, also known as Economic War or Unilateral Coercive Measures.Imposing sanctions means using the enormous influence the U.S. holds over the global economy to block the sale of basic goods to a country and to prohibit a country from accessing SWIFT, the worldwide payment system used for international trade. These measures have devastating economic impact on targeted countries, with damage most strongly felt by the poorest, most vulnerable members of society: women, children, elders and people with chronic illnesses or disabilities.The International Campaign against Sanctions and Economic War is calling for coordinated days of action around the world March 13-15 to raise consciousness around and fight back against sanctions imposed by the U.S. and its junior partners.More information about the campaign, including a call to action translated into 17 languages, a list of over 1,000 endorsers, educational materials and resources for planning an action can be found at sanctionskill.org.Can you organize a demonstration, meeting or educational event in your city? Visit sanctionskill.org/list-action to submit details.U.S.-imposed sanctions affect at least 39 countries, more than one-third of the world, a fact widely unknown even within the anti-imperialist movement. Their broad scope and deadly impact receive little attention in the mainstream media, allowing the U.S. to carry out campaigns of terror around the world with minimal awareness outside the targeted country. For example, a 2019 study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, which found that U.S. sanctions killed 40,000 Venezuelans during 2017-18, received almost no coverage.It is imperative that all anti-war, anti-imperialist and progressive forces organize against U.S.-imposed sanctions and economic war. Awareness of the U.S. sanctions must be increased, both within the anti-imperialist movement and among the working and oppressed masses at large. Beyond raising awareness, we must build a movement that not only educates, but has the power to fight back and defeat the deadly U.S. sanctions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Troy University’s Park and Art Project is one of those relationships.Hawkins said the idea to turn a gulley veiled in kudzu into an art park actually began in Vail, Colorado.“Janice and I attended a concert at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail,” Hawkins said. “We realized that we could have an amphitheater of that caliber at Troy University. We could build it, one step at a time.”The chancellor announced the contributions of his friend and friend of Troy, renowned Chinese sculptor Huo Baozhu, who has donated 100 terracotta warriors to the Park and Art Project. The Confucius Institute at Troy University commissioned the sculptor to do an additional 100 terracotta warriors. Terracotta is clay-based ceramic and the warriors refer to the collection of sculptures from 200 B.C. found in the Xian region of China Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like LAKE REOPENS: Dam repairs, new dock and conference center enhance Pike County Lake A ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the reopening of the Pike County Lake on Wednesday, June 1.

Gen. Walter Givhan, senior vice chancellor for advancement and economic development, said the One Community, One Spirit, One Troy vision and partnership was inspired by Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins and University First Lady Janice Hawkins.“Their vision was realized and is unfolding under great leadership,” Givhan said. Print Article Several of the sculptures will be placed on other Troy University campuses but the majority will come to Troy University in Troy.An additional 10 pieces of Huo Baozhu sculpture will be a part of the Park and Art Project.“As Alabama’s international university, Troy University has a rare opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the arts,” Hawkins said.The display of terracotta warriors will be the largest in the United States and could become a tourist attraction.First Lady Janice Hawkins said it was former Troy resident Ken Hendricks who first had the vision of an outdoor “museum” at the university.And the park is one part of the efforts to foster the arts on the university campus and in the Troy community.The First Lady previewed another phase of the Park and Art Project, which is the renovation of Stewart Dining Hall as a permanent art gallery and interpretative center.Hawkins said the former dining hall will be used for academic purposes as well as for artistic displays.“There will be permanent gallery space as well as space for traveling exhibitions,” Hawkins said. “Gallery space will be provided for artists who have donated their work to the university, including internationally acclaimed artist, Nall, a Troy native.”The building will also house a student gallery, a workroom for visiting artists and computer labs for the graphic design department.Troy Mayor Jason A.
