Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Montgomery, Alabama] Shirley Fifield, 88, has attended services at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Montgomery since 1973. A widow whose family roots are in Wisconsin, she attends the Sunday morning Eucharist at All Saints’, and she speaks only English.Gabriel Rosales, 25, and his wife, Rosalba Barrera, 19, are fluent in three languages, including Spanish and an indigenous Mexican language known as Mixtec. They began attending the Sunday afternoon Spanish-language service at All Saints’ about six months ago and since then have had two of their children baptized here.All Saints’ has “gone through lots of transformations” over the years, Fifield said, mentioning long-ago renovations and additions to the modest church building located about 10 minutes west of downtown. The biggest transformation, though, may be the one now underway as two small Episcopal communities, separated by language and culture, find common ground and opportunities to share their faith with each other.An informal blending of the English-language and Spanish-language communities takes place during the hospitality hour between the two services, and church leaders are discussing ways of encouraging further interaction with help from a $14,450 grant from The Episcopal Church’s United Thank Offering program, or UTO.The Rev. Pamela Long serves as deacon for Todos Santos, a growing Spanish-language worshipping community that gathers every Sunday afternoon at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe English-language congregation at All Saints’ is primarily older adults, and attendance of about 25 is typical at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday services led by the Rev. David Peeples, priest-in-charge. The Spanish-language worshipping community is called Todos Santos, “All Saints” in Spanish, and its 12:30 p.m. Sunday services are led by the Rev. Pamela Long, a Spanish professor at Auburn University at Montgomery who recently was ordained a deacon. Turnout for a baptism can top 100 people, Long said, but typical attendance usually mirrors the English-language services, about 25.All Saints’ parishioners welcomed warmly the Todos Santos families.“They were so excited to have children in the building again,” Long said. “They were just overjoyed.”Rosales said he and his family felt a connection to the church. “When I come here, I feel like home,” he said. He and Barrera attended the Oct. 20 afternoon service with Rosales’ parents and sisters, all from Mexico.Long has been involved in this evolving ministry for more than a decade, starting when she was a parishioner at another congregation, Church of the Ascension just south of downtown Montgomery.In 2006, the diocese’s missioner for Latino outreach, a priest from Colombia, began visiting Ascension once a month to lead an afternoon service in Spanish, and after he left the diocese to return to Colombia, Long filled in as a lay leader for those monthly services.One Sunday in September 2016 proved to be a turning point. A couple Latino families had asked for their children to be baptized, 12 in all, and the ceremony was scheduled at one of Ascension’s English-language services. About 150 relatives came, Long said, which took the Ascension congregation by surprise.Many of those Latino families continued to attend Ascension after the baptisms, Long said, but the clash of cultures was too difficult for the congregation there to navigate. She discussed the future of this Latino ministry with Alabama Bishop Kee Sloan, and he connected her with church leaders at All Saints’, which had tried unsuccessfully to create its own Latino ministries.“There is a real need for that, for the church to reach out to Spanish-speaking people,” Sloan told Episcopal News Service during his visit Oct. 18 with The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, which held its fall meeting in Montgomery. He lauded All Saints’ as “a joyful congregation.”In January 2019, the Latino families that had attended Ascension joined Long in an inaugural Spanish-language service at All Saints’, claiming it as their new spiritual home.“It came at a time for our parish when we were wondering what does the future hold for us,” said Peeples, who serves All Saints’ part time and also works as a hospice chaplain. The congregation was not growing on its own, so it was open to trying something new.Shirley Fifield, right, speaks with a fellow parishioner after the morning service Oct. 20 at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceAll Saints’ and Todos Santos are separate worshipping communities, but they are finding ways to engage with each other. Fifield, while struggling with the language barrier, said she thinks with time it will become easier for the two groups to communicate. On Oct. 20, she struck up a brief conversation at the hospitality hour with a couple and their daughter who had arrived early for the Spanish-language service.Peeples and Long also said the two groups came together in a big way for a joint Easter service this year that was followed by an outdoor church picnic. “That was the best Easter ever,” Long said. Another joint service is planned around All Saints’ Day.The UTO grant is intended to enhance the worship space during the Todos Santos services and make the church more welcoming for Latino families. The English-language service is typically accompanied by an organist or pianist, and Long would like to purchase other instruments for a Spanish-language praise band. Some of the money also will be used to purchase icons, or paintings of Jesus, Mary and other saints, that can be placed at the altar for the afternoon service and then removed.“Latinos are very serious about the cloud of witnesses. They want to feel the saints in their worship,” Long said.After the 10:30 a.m. service on Oct. 20, Gwen Moore, an All Saints’ vestry member, helped set up treats for the hospitality hour on the table in a gathering area near the church’s entrance. Moore has been attending All Saints’ about five years. She prefers smaller community churches like this and thinks the addition of Todos Santos has potential to “get the life back” in the church she has grown to love.“It became a blessing when this door opened for us,” Moore said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

CATCHUP: Twists and turns on opening day of U20 World Championship

first_imgThursday May 31, 2018 CATCHUP: Twists and turns on opening day of U20 World Championship The 2018 U20 World Championship kicked off in France on Wednesday evening, with six matches taking place and defending champions New Zealand racking up the highest score of the day. There were also one or two upsets. Catch up on all the highlights below. New Zealand kicked off the defence of their World Rugby U20 Championship title with a ruthless 67-0 defeat of Japan on a day of twists and turns in France on Wednesday.The 2018 edition of the premier age-grade tournament is predicted to be the most competitive yet and the opening day lived up to that expectation with four matches decided by less than seven points.South Africa were forced to dig deep to edge past an impressive Georgia 33-27 before hosts France came from 12 points down to beat Ireland 26-24 in the other Pool C match in Perpignan.The two matches in Béziers were equally tight affairs. First Italy capitalised on a late Scotland yellow card to snatch a 27-26 victory thanks to Niccolo Taddia’s try at the death, before Wales avenged their 2017 loss to Australia with a 26-21 victory.England, the 2017 runners-up, had to withstand a strong first-half performance by Argentina in the first match in Narbonne before coming through to win 39-18.The action continues on Sunday with the second round of pool matches.New Zealand will tackle Wales before France face Georgia in Béziers, while Australia meet Japan and South Africa go head to head with Ireland in Narbonne. The four Pool B teams are in Perpignan with England facing Italy and Scotland taking on Argentina.Highlights below and you can watch the full match replays here (geo-blocked in some territories)South Africa U20 v Georgia U20Scotland U20 v Italy U20England U20 v Argentina U20France U20 v Ireland U20Australia U20 v Wales U20New Zealand U20 v Japan U20credit: world rugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

One of the issues that emerged during the design process of this building was how to insert it in a peaceful rural landscape and how it interacts with the animals living in such a context. The concept of this project is to suspend a thin cover on a natural hill, equip it with furniture and in this way create a place where people and animals can meet under its shade.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe facade is made of transparent acrylic sheets on all four sides of the building, allowing the residents to get closer to nature while keeping the house warm due to this material’s high thermal insulation capability. Inside, the spaces are softly divided by expanded metal curved sheets allowing people to hang something or lean on it. These see-through partitions become guidelines for the furniture layout, and induce the residents to align things on it keeping the building tidy. This building uses light materials and organic shape interior dividers to further enhance its relationship with the landscape.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe space is composed by multiple levels with a maximum difference in height of 1000 mm that allows installing no handrails. Utilities and storage space are hidden under these levels, resulting in a very clean ground floor. The facilities’ floor level is partially underground to assure more privacy allowing the residents to see the sky only. At the same time, in the kitchen space, the level difference becomes a joint between the countertop and the ground, making it possible for a deer to stare at the residents preparing meals.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoBy extending the eaves equally, as much as the height of the acrylic facade, the thermo environment inside is improved and a shade is made outside, inducing the people to use the spaces inside and outside of the building in different ways according to the seasons and the hour of the day, blending their lifestyles into nature.Save this picture!SectionSo far, the architectural essential elements have always been discrete, but nowadays as technology progresses the distinction between a wall, a window and a pillar becomes more vague, permitting architecture to become limitless.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoProject gallerySee allShow lessKol-Tzivio Residential Project / Studio de LangeSelected ProjectsAnchoret Beijing / SPEYSSelected Projects Share ArchDaily “COPY” Construction: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/779568/hiroshima-hut-suppose-design-office Clipboard Save this picture!© Toshiyuki Yano+ 13 Share CopyAbout this officeSuppose Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshimaJapanPublished on December 31, 2015Cite: “Hiroshima Hut / Suppose Design Office” 30 Dec 2015.

Cancer charity uses online competition to recruit donors

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Association for International Cancer Research is offering free prize draws on its Web site to attract new donors.The charity’s third online prize draw has just closed. This time they were offering an Apple iPod, the popular digital music device, the second time they have offered this prize. Their previous online prize draw closed in July 2004, so it looks as if this method is working for the charity.The competition was very straightforward. Entrants had to answer a simple question, the answer to which could be found on the AICR Web site, and then complete their details. Making a donation was not a requirement for entry, but the charity did make a very gentle request that entrants consider this: “make a small donation towards our important work – it’s why we’re here after all.” Advertisement Win an iPod! Howard Lake | 14 October 2004 | News Tagged with: Digital Gaming Individual giving On submitting the entry entrants were presented with a simple donation page with prompted levels of giving.This is clearly a very low cost method of testing online donor recruitment. However, entrants might only be interested in the competition, and not the charity’s activities, so there is some risk in not attracting the right people. But this is not an Internet-only issue. The competition approach has been tried offline for some time by other charities such as IFAW, as well as AICR, so the returns are likely to be sufficient.AICR say that although online prize draws are one of the cheapest methods of supporter acquisition, comparing favourably with direct mail, advertising, face-to-face, and telephone, they continue to use theseother tools as part of their fundraising mix. Indeed, their direct mail campaigns have been running for over 20 years and “continue to bring in a very significant proportion of our income.”The Internet competitions are particularly relevant as AICR is an international charity, funding around 220 research projects in 19 countries. The competitions have generated donations from the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK and many EU countries.AICR say that the online competitions are bringing in a new kind of donor for them. The profile of the online games player is very different to that of the current AICR donor in that they are much younger, and wouldn’t normally respond to the traditional donor recruitment methods of direct mail and telephone.AICR told UK Fundraising that “In the same way that face-to-face has brought new donors into the sector, so the Internet allows us to widen the scope of what we do.” They added that the Internet should not be regarded as a mass medium: “messages have to be tailored to the individual segments”.The charity has experimented with the duration of the competition, testing durations of between four to six weeks. They continue to fine tune this element. Not surprisingly they report a surge of interest at the beginning and end of each competition.So far the charity has been “pleasantly surprised” at the percentage of people who make a donation, and both the number of people taking part and the average value of that donation (which continues to increase) have exceeded their plans and expectations.They promote each competition on their own sites together with competition listings sites, international sites, search engines and Usenet.UK Fundraising asked AICR’s Jack Cumming how they handled the data gathered, particularly that of those entrants who didn’t donate. He replied: “Our privacy policy is quite clear. We have a tick box on the entry form asking if they would like information from us in the future. If someoneenters and does not wish us to contact them then we delete their information as soon as the draw has been made. If they tick the box we add them to our database. We e-mail everyone who ticked the box with details of the next competition, as well as information regarding our work.”He confirmed that the administration costs were very low indeed. The promotion on the charity’s Web site simply involved him adding the information using the site’s content management system.The charity continues to test and refine this approach. It is based in St Andrews, so Jack said: “I would liken our online fundraising to a golf swing – there are dozens of factors that go to making it work. With each competition we make a slight adjustment and then analyse the results.” Cancer charity uses online competition to recruit donors  29 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Participants in self-denial campaigns can also use GivePenny to ask for donations when they reach specific goals, raising more money the longer they go without. The platform also accepts one off traditional donations.So far the platform, which launched at the beginning of 2016, has hosted 16 fundraising challenges. Over £2,000 has been pledged to the charities that have signed up, which include Little Princess Trust, Toy Box, Royal Life Saving Society UK, as well as Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, which is using GivePenny to raise money for the Birmingham 10k.Lee Clark, founder of GivePenny said:“Consider someone training for a marathon or cycling event. Using GivePenny, individuals can now donate 10p for every 10 miles that somebody does during training. So, as a fundraiser, the more training you do before an event, the more money you can raise for your efforts towards that goal. It really helps people to stay motivated during training.”  200 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: fundraising givepenny online fundraising software About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The partnership with the new events aims to help to raise funds to improve the lives of patients and increase awareness of the disease as the fifth most common cancer and third biggest cause of cancer deaths.Birmingham is central to Bloodwise’s work, with £20 million invested by the charity in 32 different blood cancer research projects and clinical drugs trials in the city. Funds raised from the Birmingham Marathon 2017 will be invested in the trials acceleration programme that has its hub in the city to speed up access to new treatments and drugs for blood cancer patients.The charity also has a strong presence in Scotland, with over £6 million currently invested in blood cancer research projects at Glasgow and Edinburgh universities.Matt Lawley, head of sports events at Bloodwise, said:“We are really excited to be the official charity of these two brand new events, particularly as much of the work we do in researching better treatments for blood cancer takes place in and around these cities. Both courses are so dynamic, and we are looking forward to seeing so many runners in the colourful Bloodwise t-shirts becoming some of the very first people to say they’ve completed them.”last_img read more

Frankton Dairy Open Saturday for June Dairy Month Family Event

Jenni Browning with ADA Indiana says the free family outing from 11 AM to 3 PM might surprise or even shock those who haven’t seen a dairy farm recently.“Absolutely, we get requests all the time and actually just had one today from a TV station that wanted to milk a cow by hand because they thought that’s how it happens,” she told HAT. “I told them no, that’s not how we milk any more. There’s a lot of technology and it only takes ten minutes or so to milk a cow, so I think a lot of people will be amazed by the technology, by the time that a cow is milked. Some people don’t realize it is such a quick process, and then all that goes into it tracking the care of a cow. So, Tejo has about a thousand cows on his farm. How do you keep up with all that? I think they will be really amazed by how much goes into the care of each one of those cows.”There are over 1100 Indiana dairy farm families, and this event to celebrate and educate offers dairy treats for everyone to enjoy.“Domino’s Pizza has donated pizza for everyone while supplies last, but we will also have dairy snacks, milk, cheese and yogurt. We’ll have some games there for kids, but we’ve gotten some questions about is this a family event, and absolutely! Bring your kids because we really want know starting early where food comes from, and for people who are now adults and still haven’t been to a dairy farm, we want to make sure they know where their milk comes from and how milk gets to their table every day.”Willemsen Dairy is located at 6615 West 500 North in Frankton, Indiana.Hear more from Browning, including the nutritional value of milk and her reaction to the big gulp of milk by Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato:Jenni Browning-ADAI By Andy Eubank – Jun 1, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Frankton Dairy Open Saturday for June Dairy Month Family Eventlast_img read more
