We’re supposed to be in the RECONCILIATION business, seeking to bring people into unity with one another and with God. People who have been authentically transformed by God’s grace want to live in peace and want to open doors and knock down any walls that divide. They don’t reject, dismiss, and demean others. That difference makes ALL the difference. Organized religion has become, unfortunately a cult of personal piety whose members spend most of their time acting holier-than-thou and judging everybody else who looks, acts, or talks in ways that are outside the accepted norm.

It finally came to a partial schism but it has not ended the strategy in our diocesan or General conferences. In July we will come to the same conclusion. It is time for Christianity to re-think and realign. This new reformation is already upon us and those of us in the Church Universal are basically ignoring it.Mission is always local and faith is always relational no matter how we try to ‘discipline’ it or ‘order’ it.

Isisas Barrario, my faithful landscape and lawn man for over eight years, stood by me in the heat as we discussed what to do about the yard. It’s important to know that when Isisas and I first met, I was single, working toward tenure and couldn’t have cared less about my yard except I wanted it cut and to look good—which meant he had the run of the yard. Now, married with a bigger yard and in a nicer neighborhood, I have become more involved. (Gender roles are very hard to break sometime, but that’s another column).As we looked at the deck, I told him that I saw some nails popping out and that he should get the carpenter to fix them and then get the deck painted. He said, “My friend, the earth around the deck has changed. The sun and rain have taken their toll. It is warped and nailing it won’t fix the problem—the structure is bad. You must tear it down if you want it to do any good.” A gardener had become a prophet right before my eyes and ears.While many things will be written about General Conference 2012 and its inability to enact real change for the United Methodist Church, here is one thing to take from our week and a half in Tampa: The world around us changed. The heat of the culture wars and the rain of a changing demographic are having huge impacts. We are warped and cosmetic changes won’t help—we must dare to tear down to our foundations if we ever hope to be any good to the world.Don’t get me wrong. There are dozens if not hundreds of local churches, annual conferences and general agencies who are doing the work of Christ in wonderful ways; but that’s not the issue. That’s like saying all of my boards in my deck aren’t bad and that many of them are working just fine. Because the good boards are attached to a bad structure, in the end they can only do so much good.Real organizational change cannot happen until an organization reconnects with its foundation—its central mission. This is a lesson I learned from Herb Kelleher and Colleen Barrett, legendary leaders of Southwest Airlines and two of my closest mentors (I didn’t even get married to my husband without them meeting him first). Herb and Colleen often point out that the problem with other airlines is that they believe that they are in the airline business—so they focus on planes, fuel, etc. But at Southwest Airlines, they are in the customer service business and they just happen to use fuel, planes, etc., to ensure that they are serving their customers (which includes their employees, customers, and lastly their stockholders) in an excellent way. Guess what? It works and it has been working well for over 30 years.The United Methodist Church has so much wonderful potential. As many of my colleagues who study religious organizations point out, it is the only one that has a true opportunity to succeed where other denominations have failed. At its core the UMC has always affirmed education, religious and secular inquiry, the ministry to the poor and those on the margins, and dared to speak when others were silent. Our other chief attribute is that we are a pragmatic people, a people known for our reasonability and rationality. But anyone watching the show (and that’s what it was) on Friday, can tell you that when you have United Methodists standing on tables, shouting down the presiding officer, and engaging in personal attacks on and off the floor of the plenary session, we have more than walked away from reason: we have run from it.Our structure is contained in the Book of Discipline. Interesting word—contained. Because that is exactly what our BOD is doing to us now—it is containing Methodism. When organizational change, or attempts at organizational change, can be ruled unconstitutional because they do not permit a new structure to emerge, then your organization has ruled evolution and change out of order.The issue is that the General Conference has powers that it cannot delegate to anyone but the bishops and even then in a limited role. Simply put, only a full delegation from all of Methodism can enact administrative change and no matter how well-equipped another body or bodies may be in executing that legislative and administrative role on their behalf, only 1,000 people can make that decision.Because our system of governance is based largely on the U.S. system of governance, it encompasses both its laudable ideals and its terrible inefficiencies. I think what is attractive philosophically about this system is it tries to provide for everyone to ensure that whether you are from the South Central and Southeastern Jurisdictions or Central Conferences, which have the most members, or the Cal-Pac Conference, where membership is small, everybody has a voice in our governance. But here is the problem: everybody has a voice.Our system allows for minority voices (whether of philosophy, race, gender, sexual orientation) to take an active role in the shaping of policy and legislation. This is a good thing. The majority is not always right, especially if it is made up of homogenous point of view. But as Michel Foucault points out, the minority can exercise its own tyranny over the will of the people just like the majority.Anyone listening to the debate regarding restructuring last week watched an evolution take place. Former adversaries came together and created a coalition that created legislation that was supported by Central Conference delegates, as well as other UMC delegates of all colors, sexual orientations, educations, age and genders. A small minority decided that that because they didn’t get individually consulted that they would use whatever means necessary to stop attempts at reorganization. What really is irritating is that every time I heard, “All voices weren’t represented,” I realized it was code for Adam, Don, Betty, Forbes, Christine or Joe didn’t talk to me personally, so I am offended! Let’s be crystal clear about this: while 40 percent of the delegates did not support Plan UMC, all of them did not support the action taken to take this to Judicial Council. Some were willing to see what reorganization wrought and were willing to come back to the issue in 2016.Again, winning the battle and losing the war became the strategy of the day. The minority point was clear: if we don’t like what you do or we don’t feel like you gave us enough deference, we will shut it down regardless of whom it hurts. Funny, whether it’s Grover Norquist and the Tea Party or the Methodist Federation for Social Action, the rhetoric of organizational hostage-taking has the same effect—polarization, distrust and, in the end, slow, agonizing, organizational death.One of my students in Organizational Communication could look at this mess called GC2012 and diagnose the problem immediately: An 18th Century structure cannot sustain a 21st century global organization. We must be willing to let go of the non-essentials to get back to the first fruits and ideals of why we are a People called Methodist. Asking 1,000 people to make organizational decisions and restructuring is not only dangerous, it is impractical for long-term survival. Being limited by a BOD that has increased in regulation but decreased in effectiveness is an indication that we have become all sound (and petitions) and very little fury or significance. While as a denomination we will not disappear over the next four years, I believe that the Fat Lady has taken off her kaftan and is looking through sheet music and for an evening gown.We must Rethink Church (which is a wonderful campaign if I must say so myself). We are not in the agency business. We are not in the conference business. We are in the soul-saving and soul-sustaining business. Agencies, boards, conferences, elders, deacons, and laity are just the resources we use to do that God-given business. Let’s create a governance structure and reorganization that places this priority first. Over the next weeks I will be exploring how I think that can happen.In the meantime, repeat with me: Hello, My Name is United Methodist Church and I need to change.— Maria Dixon Hall is an associate professor of communication studies at Southern Methodist University and a United Methodist.

Having had assignments and employment at the parochial, diocesan and national levels, I have concluded, and not without some grief, that the mission structures we use no longer fit and in fact are now ‘disordering’ us into fear-based scarcity-oriented organizations that resist authentic relational ministry in many, if not most, circumstances. For over two decades, I have substantiated a growing waste of resources as a result our disorder.

Lions prop Cian Healy cleared of biting scrumhalf Brett Sheehan

first_imgFriday Jun 7, 2013 Lions prop Cian Healy cleared of biting scrumhalf Brett Sheehan Cian Healy has been cleared following a disciplinary hearing for an alleged bite on Force scrumhalf Brett Sheehan. It was a miserable night for Healy, as he had to be stretchered off after injuring his ankle. Below is a look at the incident, and the injury. Feisty Sheehan got the attention of referee Glen Jackson in the first half of the Lions’ 69-17 victory over the Western Force on Wednesday. He claimed there had been a bite, so former Saracens flyhalf Jackson called upon the services of the TMO, who couldn’t find any evidence.Sheehan admitted that he wasn’t sure if it was deliberate, but indicated that he certainly felt something. Force coach Michael Foley has said that the matter was dealt with on the field, so they didn’t lodge a complaint, but the citing officer felt there was a need for a disciplinary hearing.Judicial Officer, Nigel Hampton QC, found insufficient evidence to support the allegations, clearing Healy of acts contrary to good sportsmanship after a two and a half hour hearing in Brisbane.“There is no conclusive video evidence of the incident and post-match it was not possible to distinguish any discernible bite marks outside of the ‘regular’ marks usually found following a Rugby match,” Mr Hampton said. “I cannot find proven on the balance of probabilities that there was a deliberate bite here, and the citing complaint is not upheld.”He did say however that during the tackle Sheehan’s arm may have come into contact with Healy’s mouth and teeth, but it was an unavoidable situation. Healy is therefore available for selection.“I am very relieved that the hearing has cleared me of such an allegation. I was naturally very disapointed that there was a citing in the first place,” said Healy.“I always maintained that nothing happened and I had done nothing illegal. The opposition player’s arm hit me. It is as simple as that,” added the Leinster front rower.The Ireland prop left the field later in the game after picking up a nasty looking ankle ligament injury. He is still undergoing scans and medical evaluation to determine the severity of the injury. England prop Alex Corbisiero is being flown over from Argentina as cover.UPDATE: Healy will return home after a scan revealed he has serious ligament damage to his ankle. Scotland prop Ryan Grant is being flown over as cover for Gethin Jenkins, who has a calf strain.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , British & Irish Lions 2013 Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

He was not allowed to talk to a lawyer or his family at any time while held.After his return to Egypt, Fouda told the Egyptian TV station ONtveg that all of the questions put to him during interrogation concerned his relations with the Muslim Brotherhood. He said he sympathized with the Muslim Brotherhood ideologically but denied any political or organizational links.In an interview for the Egyptian TV stationEl Balad on 4 August, Diaa Rashwan, the head of the Union of Journalists in Cairo, praised his union’s cooperation with the Egyptian foreign ministry, Egypt’s diplomatic and consular services in the UAE, the Association of Emirati Journalists and the UAE authorities.Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman Badr Adel Atty said a total of 14 Egyptian citizens, including journalists Mohamed Ali Mousa of El-Khalij and Ahmad Ja’far of Al-Ittihad, are still being held in the UAE in connection with efforts to create a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in the UAE.Their arrests are part of a crackdown that the UAE authorities launched since June 2012 against anyone with (real or supposed) links with Al-Islah, an Emirati group that shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology.Observers with international NGOs, foreign journalists and even Emirati journalists working for government and government-linked media were denied access to the courtroom during the “UAE 94” trial that ended on 2 July, while several people were arrested for posting reports about the trial online while it was taking place. to go further Organisation center_img April 28, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information News United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en RSF joins other NGOs in amicus brief in WhatsApp suit against NSO Group December 23, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Union of India & Ors., Chief Master Sargeant Massim Lat. vs. Union Of India and Kilsariyan vs. Union Of India.The Union has stated that it has “decided to accept and abide” by the order passed by the Tribunal which held that India is entitled to claim compensation from Italy and that India is precluded from exercising its jurisdiction over the marines.The plea narrates the sequence of events which had led to a stay on all proceedings in India due to the order passed by International Tribunal on Law of The Sea (ITLOS), which had stated that both Italy and India shall suspend all court proceedings.”…on 24 August 2015, International Tribunal on Law of the Sea (ITLOS), on the request of Italy, rendered an Order prescribing provisional measure stating that Italy and India shall both suspend all court proceedings. Vide order dated 26.8.2015, this Hon’ble Court, in view of the pendency of the issue before International Tribunal on Law of the Sea (ITLOS), was pleased to stay the proceedings pending before it and before other Court.states that the Supreme Court was pleased to stay the proceedings pending in the case before the Special Court”Further to this, by a modified order on September 2, 2015 was passed by the Supreme Court which further deferred all proceedings pending in India.”….this Order was later modified on 02-09-2015 by this Hon’ble Court to the effect that ITLOS shall be read as “Annex VII Arbitral Tribunal” thereby the proceedings pending in the Courts shall remain stayed/deferred till further orders.”The Tribunal unanimously held that India is entitled to claim compensation from Italy. It also held (by 3:2 majority) that the Marines are entitled to immunity in relation to the acts that they committed during the incident of 15 February 2012, and that India is precluded from exercising its jurisdiction over the Marines.The Tribunal pronounced an Award in Enrica Lexie Case holding that Italy has acted in breach of the Article 87, paragraph 1, subparagraph (a), and Article 90 of the United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea and that India is entitled to payment of compensation in connection with “loss of life, physical harm, material damage to property (including to the “St. Antony”) and moral harm suffered by the captain and other crew members of the “St. Antony””, which by its nature cannot be made good through restitution.The Tribunal also unanimously held that India has not breached Article 87 of the UNCLOS by asking Enrica Lexie to change its course and by detaining it at Kochi port after the incident of firing on Feb 15, 2012.Further to this, both countries have been invited to consult with each other with a view to reaching agreement on the amount of compensation due to India. It clarified that the Arbitral Tribunal shall retain jurisdiction should either Party or both Parties wish to apply for a ruling from the Arbitral Tribunal in respect of the quantification of compensation due to India.The Tribunal has also ordered that India must take the necessary steps to cease to exercise its criminal jurisdiction over the Marine.In this backdrop, the Union has stated that the Republic of India shall accept and abide by the Award passed by the said tribunal and while placing the Award before the Top Court in the Writ Petitions pertaining to the said issue, stated that the pending proceedings be disposed off in conformity with the Award.”The applicant states and submits that the Republic of India has taken a decision to accept and abide by the Award passed by the said Tribunal which would have the bearing on the continuance of present proceedings before this Hon’ble Court….The Applicant states and submit that the Applicant is, therefore, placing this Award on record with a prayer that the proceedings with regard to the incident dated 15.2.2012 be disposed of in conformity with the Award passed by the aforesaid Tribunal on 21.5.2020.”Click Here To Download ApplicationNext Storylast_img read more
