Lawrence Dallaglio: Twickenham the right venue for European Champions Cup final

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the November issue of Rugby World there is a Big Debate: were EPCR right to award the European Champions Cup final to Twickenham?In the feature it is contested by CEO of sponsorship experts Synergy, Tim Crow, that Twickenham was the pragmatic marketing decision for a brand new competition while Italian international Simone Favaro insisted that there is more to rugby than money. He wanted to see major events taken in to territories like Italy because it would be well received, passionately supported and help the game in general.However former England captain and BT sport rugby expert Lawrence Dallaglio believes that while money and growing the game are important, Twickenham can tick both of those boxes on the grand day of Saturday 2 May.“Twickenham is a very special place,” says Dallaglio, who triumphed in two Heineken Cup finals at England’s national stadium with Wasps. “I recently helped journalist Chris Jones with his book The Secret Life of Twickenham ­– I’ve been fortunate enough to play a number of club finals there, and it is an iconic place. Glory days: Lawrence Dallaglio celebrates winning the Heineken Cup with Wasps at Twickenham in 2007 “There have also been so many special moments there. Look back to when it was hosting the 1991 World Cup final or that game where Philippe Saint-Andre scored that try, considered one of the best ever scored.”Dallaglio agrees that commercially this is a “very sound” choice and it makes real sense to have the Champions Cup final there for a guaranteed sell-out, but that is a by-product of having such an impressive venue hosting a successful new event. “It’s the dawn of a new tournament, in the year of a Rugby World Cup. While some would agree that the European Champions Cup final should be played elsewhere, in many ways this is a pre-curser to the World Cup. This gives organisers the chance to showcase what Twickenham and England have to offer in three to four months (before the World Cup).” The big event kicks off this Friday, as Harlequins host Castres at the Stoop – where the Challenge Cup final will be on Friday 1 May 2015. If any of the English sides are as lucky as Dallaglio to make a final in Twickenham, maybe they will be able to spend the night before in their own bed, just as the famous England No 8 did back in 2007.BT Sport will be televising the European Champions Cup final live on 2 May.

Jefferts Schori: ‘I am deeply grateful for what God has…

We are Christ’s church universal preaching Christ’s Gospel of salvation and reconciliation.

Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Tr. Donald Heacock says: October 23, 2015 at 7:06 pm I very much appreciate the tone and content of the PB’s statement. However, I must take issue with aspects of the translation into Spanish. Just as we do not have “priestesses”, but rather priests who are both male and female, there can be no “obispa” — irrespective of gender, the proper title for one ordained to the fullness of the apostolic ministry is “obispo”, an invariant noun. Likewise in English usage we have only bishops — no “bishopesses”.

While many have been beaten into submission or left the church, the internal conflict is far from over. General Convention may have spoken, but those few “decision makers” are just as out of touch as the PB and in no way reflect the mind of the wider church as a whole in any theological or moral way.Anyone who still refers to the Episcopal Church as the middle way is intellectually dishonest and lacks any true understanding of the definition of middle.

We thank you for your years of leading our church and your presence as a Christian in this world. Your sister in Christ, Barbara+ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Albany, NY [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued the following statement in English and Spanish:The Episcopal Church has come a long way in the last 10 years. We are no longer consumed by internal conflict over various social issues. We are clearer about who we are – a multinational church, with congregations in 17 nations, worshipping in countless different languages, thriving in international, immigrant, and multicultural contexts everywhere, and discovering the abundant life that comes in turning outward to love the neighbors nearby and far away. We are far more conscious about our vocation as partners in the mission of God to reconcile and heal the world, particularly shaped by the Five Anglican Marks of Mission. We are holding our identity as Episcopal Christians a bit more confidently, even in the midst of our diversity. We are also more willing to hold that identity lightly and gracefully in engaging other Christians and people of other religious traditions, searching for what we dream of in common – shalom, the Reign of God, a more just and peaceful world, with abundant life for all creation.I am deeply grateful for what God has been up to in the midst of our journey together, and I look forward to seeing how this church of the middle way will continue to lead and partner as we travel the road home, into God’s fullest dream of abundant life for all. I thank the people of this Church and beyond for your prayers over the last nine years – especially in recognition that we do this work together, never alone. May God bless the next chapter of The Episcopal Church’s engagement in God’s mission, as we go together into Galilee!The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchEstoy profundamente agradecida por la manera en que Dios se ha manifestado en medio de nuestra trayectoria juntos dice la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts SchoriLa Iglesia Episcopal ha hecho un largo recorrido en los últimos 10 años. Ya no estamos consumidos por el conflicto interno sobre varios problemas sociales. Tenemos una idea más clara de quienes somos: una Iglesia multinacional, con congregaciones en 17 países, que celebra su culto en numerosas lenguas, que prospera en contextos internacionales, de inmigrantes y multiculturales en todas partes y que descubre la vida abundante a que se le da acceso volcándose hacia fuera para amar a nuestros semejantes, cercanos y distantes. Somos mucho más conscientes de nuestra vocación como asociados en la misión de Dios de reconciliar y restaurar el mundo, particularmente configurada por las Cinco Marcas Anglicanas de la Misión. Conservamos nuestra identidad como cristianos episcopales un poco más confiadamente, aun en medio de nuestra diversidad. También estamos más dispuestos a mantener esa identidad de un modo mesurado y amable al relacionarnos con otros cristianos y con personas de otras tradiciones religiosas, en busca de lo que soñamos en común: shalom, el Reino de Dios, un mundo más justo y pacífico, con vida abundante para toda la creación.Estoy profundamente agradecida por la manera en que Dios se ha manifestado en medio de nuestra trayectoria juntos, y espero ver como esta Iglesia de la vía media continúa liderando y asociándose mientras proseguimos en el camino a nuestra meta, la plenitud del sueño de Dios de vida abundante para todos. Les doy gracias a las personas de esta Iglesia y fuera de ella por sus oraciones a lo largo de los últimos nueve años —en particular en reconocimiento de que hacemos esta obra juntos, nunca solos. ¡Qué Dios bendiga al próximo capítulo del compromiso de la Iglesia Episcopal en la misión de Dios, según marchamos juntos a Galilea!Rvdma.

It will take time, but it is inevitable. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Belleville, IL Anglican Communion, Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Featured Events Fin Winful says: January 15, 2016 at 10:54 pm So ironic that BLACK bishops chose to discriminate! Rector Tampa, FL Rector Albany, NY Course Director Jerusalem, Israel January 15, 2016 at 10:55 am Action counts far more than words. While re-issuing platitudes like those above, their actions (and other words they spew) continue to give permission to the exclusion of and violence towards LGBT people. We have had such platitudes since 1998 Lambeth I.10 in their constant repetition of the condemnation of homosexuality while never again mentioning the second clause of that resolution. The primates of the Anglican Communion pose Jan. 14 in Canterbury Cathedral in England.[Primates2016 website] As the Jan. 11-15 Anglican Primates Meeting drew to a close in Canterbury, England, the members issued the following communiqué:Walking Together in the Service of God in the WorldThe meeting of Anglican Primates, the senior bishops of the 38 Anglican Provinces, joined by the Archbishop of the Anglican Church of North America, took place in Canterbury between Monday 11 January and Friday 15 January at the invitation of Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The first morning was spent in prayer and fasting.We came knowing that the 2016 Primates’ meeting would be concerned with the differences among us in regard to our teaching on matters of human sexuality. We were also eager to address wider areas of concern.The meeting started by agreeing the agenda. The first agreed item was to discuss an important point of contention among Anglicans worldwide: the recent change to the doctrine of marriage by The Episcopal Church in the USA.Over the past week the unanimous decision of the Primates was to walk together, however painful this is, and despite our differences, as a deep expression of our unity in the body of Christ. We looked at what that meant in practical terms.We received the recommendation of a working group of our members which took up the task of how our Anglican Communion of Churches might walk together and our unity be strengthened. Their work, consistent with previous statements of the Primates’ meetings, addressed what consequences follow for The Episcopal Church in relation to the Anglican Communion following its recent change of marriage doctrine. The recommendations in paragraphs 7 and 8 of the Addendum A below are:“It is our unanimous desire to walk together. However given the seriousness of these matters we formally acknowledge this distance by requiring that for a period of three years The Episcopal Church no longer represent us on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and that while participating in the internal bodies of the Anglican Communion, they will not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or polity.“We have asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint a Task Group to maintain conversation among ourselves with the intention of restoration of relationship, the rebuilding of mutual trust, healing the legacy of hurt, recognising the extent of our commonality and exploring our deep differences, ensuring they are held between us in the love and grace of Christ.”These recommendations were adopted by the majority of the Primates present.We will develop this process so that it can also be applied when any unilateral decisions on matters of doctrine and polity are taken that threaten our unity.The Primates condemned homophobic prejudice and violence and resolved to work together to offer pastoral care and loving service irrespective of sexual orientation. This conviction arises out of our discipleship of Jesus Christ. The Primates reaffirmed their rejection of criminal sanctions against same-sex attracted people.The Primates recognise that the Christian church and within it the Anglican Communion have often acted in a way towards people on the basis of their sexual orientation that has caused deep hurt. Where this has happened they express their profound sorrow and affirm again that God’s love for every human being is the same, regardless of their sexuality, and that the church should never by its actions give any other impression.We affirmed the consultation that had taken place in preparation for the meeting by Archbishop Welby and commended his approach for future events within the Communion.The consideration of the required application for admission to membership of the Communion of the Anglican Church of North America was recognised as properly belonging to the Anglican Consultative Council. The Primates recognise that such an application, were it to come forward, would raise significant questions of polity and jurisdiction.In the wake of the climate change conference in Paris last month, the meeting heard about a petition of almost two million signatures co-coordinated by the Anglican Environment Network. Reports were made about moves to divest from fossil fuels, the expansion of the African Deserts and the struggle for survival of the peoples of the Pacific as island life is threatened in many places by the rise of sea levels.The meeting discussed the reality of religiously motivated violence and its impact on people and communities throughout the world. Primates living in places where such violence is a daily reality spoke movingly and passionately about their circumstances and the effect on their members. The Archbishop of Canterbury himself has taken important initiatives in bringing people together from a range of faith communities globally for discussion and mutual accountability. The Anglican Primates repudiated any religiously motivated violence and expressed solidarity with all who suffer from this evil in the world today.The Primates look forward to the proposal being brought to the Anglican Consultative Council for comprehensive child protection measures to be available throughout all the churches of the Communion.In a presentation on evangelism, the Primates rejoiced that the Church of Jesus Christ lives to bear witness to the transforming power of the love of God in Jesus Christ. The Primates were energised by the opportunity to share experiences of evangelism and motivated to evangelise with their people.“The Primates joyfully commit themselves and the Anglican Church, to proclaim throughout the world the person and work of Jesus Christ, unceasingly and authentically, inviting all to embrace the beauty and joy of the Gospel.”(See Addendum B.)The Primates supported the Archbishop of Canterbury in his proposal to call a Lambeth Conference in 2020.Primates discussed tribalism, ethnicity, nationalism and patronage networks, and the deep evil of corruption. They reflected that these issues become inextricably connected to war and violence, and derive from poverty. They agreed to ask the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion to commission a study for the next Primates’ meeting. The Primates agreed to meet again in 2017 and 2019.The Primates owe a debt of gratitude to the staff of the Anglican Communion Office, and especially the Secretary General, to the staff at Lambeth Palace and at Church House Westminster. The Primates were especially grateful for the warm welcome, generous hospitality and kindness offered by the Dean of Canterbury and all at the Cathedral. Their contribution was very important in setting the mood of the meeting in prayer and mutual listening. Thanks to the Community of St Anselm for their prayer, help and support, Jean Vanier for his inspiring addresses, and the Community of St Gregory for the loan of the crosier head to sit alongside the St Augustine gospels.The Primates received their time together as a gift from God and experienced many signs of God’s presence amongst us. They appreciated the personal care and humility shown by the Archbishop of Canterbury especially in his chairing of the meeting. We leave our week together enriched by the communion we share and strengthened by the faithful witness of Anglicans across the world. The Primates deeply appreciate the prayers of many throughout the world over our time together.Addendum A1.We gathered as Anglican Primates to pray and consider how we may preserve our unity in Christ given the ongoing deep differences that exist among us concerning our understanding of marriage.2.Recent developments in the Episcopal Church with respect to a change in their Canon on marriage represent a fundamental departure from the faith and teaching held by the majority of our Provinces on the doctrine of marriage. Possible developments in other Provinces could further exacerbate this situation.3.All of us acknowledge that these developments have caused further deep pain throughout our Communion.4.The traditional doctrine of the church in view of the teaching of Scripture, upholds marriage as between a man and a woman in faithful, lifelong union. The majority of those gathered reaffirm this teaching.5.In keeping with the consistent position of previous Primates’ meetings such unilateral actions on a matter of doctrine without Catholic unity is considered by many of us as a departure from the mutual accountability and interdependence implied through being in relationship with each other in the Anglican Communion.6.Such actions further impair our communion and create a deeper mistrust between us. This results in significant distance between us and places huge strains on the functioning of the Instruments of Communion and the ways in which we express our historic and ongoing relationships.7.It is our unanimous desire to walk together. However given the seriousness of these matters we formally acknowledge this distance by requiring that for a period of three years TEC no longer represent us on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and that while participating in the internal bodies of the Anglican Communion, they will not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or polity.8.We have asked the ABC to appoint a Task Group to maintain conversation among ourselves with the intention of restoration of relationship, the rebuilding of mutual trust, healing the legacy of hurt, recognising the extent of our commonality and exploring our deep differences, ensuring they are held between us in the love and grace of Christ.Addendum BWe, as Anglican Primates, affirm together that the Church of Jesus Christ lives to bear witness to the transforming love of God in the power of the Spirit throughout the world.It is clear God’s world has never been in greater need of this resurrection love and we long to make it known.We commit ourselves through evangelism to proclaim the person and work of Jesus Christ, unceasingly and authentically, inviting all to embrace the beauty and joy of the Gospel.We rely entirely on the power of the Holy Spirit who gives us speech, brings new birth, leads us into the truth revealed in Christ Jesus thus building the church.All disciples of Jesus Christ, by virtue of our baptism, are witnesses to and of Jesus in faith, hope and love.We pledge ourselves together to pray, listen, love, suffer and sacrifice that the world may know that Jesus Christ is Lord.Come Holy Spirit. dolly patterson says: Linda Neuman says: William A.

God loves gays same as everyone else does not equate to God blesses gay relationships. It is the same position we should adopt.We think all that matters is love amongst consenting parties? If we accept this can you imagine 100 years from now what marriage will become? Between siblings? Between humans and pets? Where does it end and why? Kojo Darko says: January 20, 2016 at 3:44 pm The older I grow, the wiser I get. What happened at Canterbury was simply a power play, both by the Global South and the ACNA (which is a part of the same). The United Methodist also feel the stress of dealing with the Global South in their society. The Church is not equally yoked together. While some are drinking milk, others are eating meat, and the Apostle Paul speaks extensively to that situation.I am humbled at the stance TEC has taken. It has taken the Holy Spirit over 2,000 years to bring the full acceptance of all God’s children into one body, most definitively, the Body of Christ. There are many spiritual babies still in the world. I am glad God has given us a few spiritual adults to care for them.I have spent my life studying the Scriptures, the history of the church and sacred theology to learn this lesson: God is God and God can save whom He wants. God is not like us in mind, body or spirit. We should be humbled to be allowed to be a part of His Body of Christ. Judgment belongs to Him and to Him alone. Thanks Be To God.I like you, have sinned and do sin every day. However, I trust in Jesus to be Lord and that may well be the difference in the Global South including ACNA and TEC. (You think?)

Kim Byham says: Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK January 20, 2016 at 7:17 pm Sad as the statement by the Primates is it may represent some progress. The Holy Spirit doesn’t always act as quickly as we would wish. At the Lambeth Conference in 1998 the Primate of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan announced that there was no discrimination against homosexual persons in his (then) nation because “there are no homosexuals in Sudan.” So perhaps merely eschewing criminal persecution of LGBT folks (such as in Uganda) represents progress. As for the “theological argument” that we can love LGBT people and should not discriminate but we shouldn’t change a long-term belief of the Church I only point to the long-term orthodox belief that the Jews were responsible for Christ’s crucifixion (only lately renounced), a belief that led to unbelievable persecution.

Designed for a family of five, Villa J is a generously sized residence located near Kämpinge, a former fishing village east of the town of Höllviken in southernmost Sweden. While the house itself is close to the water, the corner site is adjacent to roads in the southeast and –west. Local planning regulations imposed certain limitations, as only a third of the building’s upper storey could be built to its full height.Save this picture!© Markus LinderothAn atrium, secluded by walls and a pool house, unites the interior and exterior spaces. On the ground floor are the master bedroom and several ample social spaces, as well as a winter garden, kitchen, sauna, etc. The upper floor is the children’s realm, comprising a living room, bedrooms and a sizable family bath.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe floor plan is an attempt to merge different room types without the bulk of unnecessary walls and doors, with spaces opening onto each other in clear sequence and often with subtle shifts. Villa J can provide room for socialising or seclusion – even simultaneously. The main axes of the plot, the house and the garden work in symphony to create multiple unorthodox angles. The composition draws on an aesthetic somewhere between collage and a more austere expression.Save this picture!© Markus LinderothThe load-bearing structure is constructed of wood and steel with a concrete intermediary floor slab. The façades are clad with Danish brick, light grey render, stained pine and black aluminium. The windows are manufactured by Schüco, and the doors are custom-made by Snickerbolaget.Save this picture!© Markus LinderothProject gallerySee allShow lessLoft Vasco / ILLASelected ProjectsThe Three-Dimensional City: How Drones Will Impact the Future Urban LandscapeArchitecture News Share Photographs Villa J / Johan SundbergSave this projectSaveVilla J / Johan Sundberg CopyHouses•Kämpinge, Sweden ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/581095/villa-j-johan-sundberg Clipboard Save this picture!© Markus Linderoth+ 32 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/581095/villa-j-johan-sundberg Clipboard “COPY” Architects: Johan Sundberg Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  2013 ArchDaily Projects Photographs:  Markus Linderoth Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeJohan SundbergOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesKämpingeSwedenPublished on January 02, 2015Cite: “Villa J / Johan Sundberg” 02 Jan 2015.

This project is about creating a balanced atmosphere between noisy and calm.Let us introduce our brainchild. 2415EW is the second highest apartment of Euro Window building. Located at a corner of city center, in which always busy and crownded. On the other side, the facade of flat was made from glass so it has a large view and full of natural light. However, there was one bedroom hid a part of the sight to see landscape. That was our challenge when renovate apartment.Save this picture!© Nguyen Thai ThachSave this picture!Planta – After RenovationsSave this picture!© Nguyen Thai ThachThe owner of this flat told us, that he loves music and he wants a space to live but also an entertainment room, to enjoy sound and wine. Our solution here is rearrange the plan, remove some walls to make an open-living space. We use 1/2 area for kitchen and living room, also placed them in center of apartment. We called that a “chill out space”. A concrete collum seem a weakness of this flat, however, we thought it would be great if turned it into a mirror cladding. In fact, that mirror collum work really well, it creat a paranoma view in spaces, there is no start or end point. Best part of master and bedrooms is that we use frosted glass as the room divider. The effects on spaces are bring out an endless view from East to West and keep family members always connected.Save this picture!© Nguyen Thai ThachThe main entrance of apartment is blocked by the bar (also the kitchen island). We want the hall will lead people into the spaces gradually, not directly. Evoking curiousness then bursting by the context. Talk about the kitchen island, it made from brushed copper monolithic. With an unique design and a shiny material the bar become highlight of apartment.Save this picture!© Nguyen Thai ThachOverrall, we choose a minimal design for this apartment, we also set solid box and open box alternately in the spaces. Each furniture was carefully consider to chosen and designed. Ensuring furnishings unite with spaces. We can say 2415EW is an absolutely convenient apartment for life and totally a comfortable place to live.Save this picture!© Nguyen Thai ThachProject gallerySee allShow lessChalet W / CASE-REALSelected ProjectsJL House / AATArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Trần Duy Hưng, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, VietnamLocation to be used only as a reference.

What Demographics Will Fuel Housing Demand in 2017?

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post What Demographics Will Fuel Housing Demand in 2017? Millennials and the baby boomer population will be demographics to watch in the new year, as the housing decisions they make will increase demand for the next 10 years, according to the 2017 National Housing Forecast report from Realtor.com which details the top housing trends and 100 largest metropolitan markets to watch.A demographic that is known for benefiting greatly from low mortgage rates, the millennial market’s share of the buyer population has decreased to 33 percent due to the increase in interest rates. Baby boomers take up 30 percent of the buyers’ market and are expected to be more successful in closing sales.  Home price appreciation is set to slow down to 3.9 percent growth year-over-year after an estimated appreciation rate of4.9 percent in 2016. However, 26 markets will see price acceleration of 1 percentage point growth or more. Greensboro-High Point, North Carolina; Akron, Ohio; and Baltimore-Columbia-Towson, Maryland will encounter the largest increases in price appreciation. The combination of sparse housing inventory and strong demand was the cause of increased home prices in 2016, according to Realtor.com. The lack of home inventory, which is currently down an average of 11 percent in the top 10 metropolitan areas in the United States, is expected to remain constant in 2017. The current median age of inventory is at 68 days, which is a 14 percent increase than the national average. West coast cities are expected to lead the nation in home prices and sales with increases of 5.8 percent and 4.7 percent, respectively. Six out of the top 10 cities listed in Realtor.com’s 2017 top 100 metro housing markets list are located on the west coast. The top 10 housing markets are: 1) Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Arizona; 2) Los Angeles-Long-Beach-Anaheim, California; 3) Boston-Cambridge-Newton, Massachusetts-New Hampshire; 4) Sacramento-Roseville-Arden-Arcade, California; 5) Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario; 6) Jacksonville, Florida; 7) Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Florida; 8) Raleigh, North Carolina; 9) Tucson, Arizona; and 10) Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, Oregon-Washington.
