Somber, deeply Anglican funeral honors Prince Philip for his service…

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Church of England Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Martinsville, VA [Religion News Service] In a funeral service that offered as much military pomp as it did spiritual comfort, the life of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was remembered April 17 at Windsor Castle, the British royal family’s home outside London.The Rt. Rev. David Conner, the dean of the chapel, honored Philip’s life of service to the British Commonwealth, greeting the approximately 30 attendees at St. George’s Chapel steps by remembering the prince consort’s life as “an inspiration to us,” and praising his devotion to the queen.“We have been inspired by his unwavering loyalty to our queen, by his service to the nation and the Commonwealth, by his courage, fortitude and faith,” said Conner. “Our lives have been enriched through the challenges that he has set us, the encouragement that he has given us, his kindness, humor and humanity.”Hewing closely to the traditional Anglican funeral liturgy, the service’s hymns and readings reflected Philip’s service in the Royal Navy and his environmental work, with only a nod to his Greek Orthodox Christian beginnings. But the funeral was marked too by its brevity and spareness, in part due to the risk of spreading COVID-19.Conner celebrated the barely hour-long service, which did not include the Eucharist, with the Most Rev. Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, the leader of the Anglican Communion.Riding to the chapel in a military green Land Rover of Philip’s own design, the casket was trailed by a procession led by Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Princess Anne, with Prince Edward and Charles’ sons, William and Harry, and other family members following. Queen Elizabeth II made the short trek from the castle to the chapel in a limousine.The music for the service, selected and some of it originally commissioned by Philip himself, drew deeply from Anglican tradition. The casket was brought to the vaulting medieval chapel to the sounds of “Rhosymedre,” which was also played at Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997, as well as at the weddings of both her sons.The service began with the small choir — just four voices, standing 10 or so feet apart — singing the hymn “Melita” by J.B. Dykes and William Whiting and “Eternal Father, Strong to Save,” the 1860 composition, also by Whiting, that is the informal anthem of the Royal Navy and is often sung at U.S. Navy services.Philip’s roots in the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition were acknowledged in the singing of the Russian Kontakion of the Departed, a somber chant that begins, “Give rest, O Christ, to thy servant with thy saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting.”Apart from the gospel reading, a familiar passage from John’s Gospel in which Jesus calls himself “the resurrection and the life,” the readings for the service highlighted Philip’s advocacy for the environment, much of which he channeled through the Alliance of Religions and Conservation, a nonprofit he co-founded with Martin Palmer in 1995.The Old Testament lesson from Ecclesiastes emphasized the majesty of creation and God’s power over the Earth, a theme taken up by the singing of Psalm 104, which reads, “O Lord, how manifold is your creation.” The setting for the psalm was commissioned by Philip for a celebration of his 75th birthday.This story was originally published Religion News Service and is republished here with permission.

Architects Bryden Wood have completed a stunning beach-side residential retreat in Ponte Verde Beach, Florida. Inspired by both its tropical location and industrial design, the Beach Shack is a 900sqm home fitted with concrete interiors, innovative interventions, such as a retractable hydraulic staircase, and sustainable elements throughout.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographyThe concept of the design, initially developed in conjunction with Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, is a continuation of similar architectural themes explored in a previous scheme in Germany, built for the same client. Comprising of two symmetrical wings that extend from a central foyer and entrance, The Beach Shack is a bold, linear residential project with striking facades. It creates panoramic views of the ocean and flowing movement through internal areas.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographySave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionBeach Shack’s western, street-facing facade is built as a separate layer from the main house. It uses large precast panels dominated by a pattern of portholes. The facade shelters the interior from the West sun and generates transitioning temperature and lighting conditions. This zone houses a semi-interior garden that serves as a private interior space for contemplation. In contrast, the East facade is fully glazed with composite aluminum-oak sliding doors and window panels that open up and embrace the beach landscape. The sliding Alaskan yellow cedar louvred panels control the amount of light in the interior.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographyThe interior space flows around the open foyer which links the kitchen, living room and library as a single continuous, fluid space. This is surrounded by a balanced combination of the exposed vertical structural concrete surfaces and polished concrete floor that forms the structure, softened by the deep timber mullions of the glazed façade, white walls, fun colourful furniture and art.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographyInside is minimalistic and high-tech with guests greeted by a stunning retractable hydraulic powered staircase and three stainless steel, glass and timber platforms. The design is inspired by the industrial background of the owners, and was built to the highest standards by an experienced ocean front residential construction team, which included nautical engineers and fabricators. The central stairs, operated by two Hydraulic engines cylinders built into the platform, can lift when desired, freeing up the dining and living spaces to merge into one for hosting and events.The platforms articulate the space both horizontally and vertically at the heart of the house and take the user from the ground floor to the rooftop where the topmost platform rewards the visitor with a 360 degree panoramic view of the ocean and marshes surrounding the site.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographyDespite the tranquil weather of the spring and summer months, the area is subject to the effects of the Caribbean hurricanes. In conjunction with the exposed concrete structure, the house is designed of withstanding winds over 140mph. The ocean façade is completed with sliding Alaskan yellow cedar louvred panels to control the amount of light in the interior. The untreated timber allows the exterior panels to weather naturally with time.Save this picture!© Ketterman Photography The careful attention to the control of the direct sunlight and reduction in solar heat gains in all facades combined with integrated PV panels makes the house energy efficient and close to zero emissions. Again, sensitively working with the character of the site, landscape designer Ben Dinkins planted a variety of species indigenous to the region that blend well with existing beach dune vegetation. Further environmental damage was significantly reduced by use of deep orange lighting, specifically selected to ensure that turtles, present in the area during their reproductive cycles, are not disturbed by the lights at night.Save this picture!© Ketterman PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessCanopy by Hilton in Chengdu / CCDSelected ProjectsEnvironmental Interpretation Centre in São Jorge Island / Ana Laura VasconcelosSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description 2018 United Stateslast_img read more

EFA report reveals Europe-wide optimism in voluntary income growth

first_img Advertisement Tagged with: European Fundraising Association Research / statistics EFA report reveals Europe-wide optimism in voluntary income growth Fundraising associations across Europe are optimistic about voluntary income growth, according to research from the European Fundraising Association (EFA).The report, Fundraising in Europe 2015, questioned fundraising associations in 16 European countries, The majority of the associations surveyed reported that voluntary income rose (eight) or remained stable (six) from 2013 to 2014, with nine nations anticipating further growth for 2015.In addition, for the first time the EFA has collated voluntary income data from thirteen European nations, which indicates that voluntary income is worth an estimated €40 billion euros annually across these countries. The figures also indicate that the UK, Germany and Italy raise the largest amounts, with their voluntary income reported at €17 billion, €8 billion and €4 billion respectively.New fundraising techniques, developments in technology, and the use of social media are the factors that fundraising associations attribute to having had the most positive influence on charity fundraising over the past year, followed by higher standards of fundraising.The majority of European nations reported that public trust and confidence is largely stable, with four nations indicating a fall from 2013 to 2014 while only one thought trust had risen. Public trust in charities was identified as the top area of concern, with references to both charity scandals and other national events as likely contributing factors.The most negative factor to have affected fundraising from 2013 to 2014 seems to have been the implementation of the new Single Euro Payments Area regulations, with six European nations identifying difficulties in implementing and adapting to the new scheme.Many nations also report a reduction to some funding channels, despite all sixteen associations surveyed saying that charities in their nation are facing increasing demand for charitable services.Günther Lutschinger, president of the European Fundraising Association and CEO of Fundraising Verband Austria said:“For the second year in a row, the majority of nations anticipate further growth in voluntary income for the year ahead. At the same time, there is widespread recognition that the sector cannot take its treasured position of public trust for granted. To protect that trust, charities have to work hard to build public understanding not only of their services, but of the way that they operate.”  48 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 3 December 2015 | News 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.

Therefore, its seeking the Supreme Court’s approval on a false narrative that Muslims and Christians are invaders and less a part of this country.The applicant has argued that the plea has mischievously equated ‘pilgrimages’ with ‘ places of worship’ which is not tenable on even the most basic dictionary meanings of these words.The applicant has further claimed that the PIL seems to be an attempt to reopen the Ramjanmabhumi- Babri Masjid dispute, seeking to re agitate the issues settled by the Court in that dispute. If the Parliament, as wrongly contended by the petitioner, does not enjoy power to legislate about places of worship and the land they stand on, it will lead to complete reopening of Ram Janmanhumi- Babri Masjid dispute.The applicant has contended that the petition is an attempt to strike at the very root of the sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic Republic, where religious grievance concocted towards petty political ends would have primacy over the national goal of modern development, of equal development, and creation of an India which would be an envy of the world.The applicant has stated that while the country as a whole have been seeking to progress in a united fashion there have bee attempts by individuals including the petitioner to divide people emotionally on the basis of religion.Barbarism lies in a lack of understanding and in a lack of shared emotions and fraternity. Such attempts to push India into the rank of religious states which are derided worldwide for their lack of modernism is unfortunate.The applicant has argued that the petitioner’s has challenged the 1991 Act on the grounds that the same violates Hindu law as it existed when Constitution was promulgated, and Articles 25,26,27 bar laws like the 1991 Act. However, the 1991 Act robs no one of the right to profess or practice their religion.According to the applicant, the petitioner has suppressed Supreme Court’s judgement in the case of M Siddiq vs Mahant Suresh Das where purpose of the 1991 Act was noted and on fact approved by a Constitution Bench, as a legislative instrument designed to protect the secular features of Indian polity, which is one of the basic features of the Constitution.The judgement had further held that, non-retrogression is a foundational feature of the fundamental constitutional principles of which secularism is a core component, and the Places of Worship Act is thus a legislative intervention which preserves non-retrogression as an essential feature of our secular values.The applicant has argued that the petitioner ought to have gone in review against the judgement in Siddiq’s case instead of trying to score petty political points by seeking to attack the basic structure of the Constitution. The petitioner is making a direct assault against secular structure of the Constitution.The present application has been filed in PIL filed challenging the Constitutional validity of the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act 1991 inasmuch as it bars remedies against illegal encroachment on the places of worship and pilgrimages prior to August 15, 1947.A Bench comprising of CJI SA Bobde and Justice AS Bopanna had recently issued notices to the Home Ministry, Ministry of Law and the Ministry of Culture.The plea, in particular challenges Sections 2, 3 and 4 of the Act stating the same take away rights of Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs to reclaim their places of worship through Courts.The plea submits that the impugned provisions create an arbitrary, irrational retrospective cut-off date and legalize the illegal acts of invaders who encroached upon religious institutions back in the day. It is thus alleged that the provisions violate the basic principle of Secularism and are contrary to the State’s duty to protect historic places under Article 49 and to preserve religious cultural heritage under Article 51A of the Constitution.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
