WCC Assembly renews churches’ commitment towards justice, peace

first_img Anglican Communion, Press Release Service Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL [World Council of Churches press release] The World Council of Churches (WCC) 10th Assembly in Busan, Republic of Korea, concluded on 8 November, acting to inspire churches to renew their commitments to justice and peace. Through varied encounters and dialogue within the fellowship of churches, the Assembly has made concrete decisions and recommendations setting priorities for the future work of the WCC.The Assembly, highest governing body of the WCC which meets every seven years, reviewed programmatic activities of the WCC, issued public statements and recorded minutes of concern, endorsing engagement and action by the churches around the world.The Assembly also elected a new top governing body to lead the WCC into its new mandate.“This assembly has provided a significant momentum for the ecumenical movement,” said the WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit during a press meeting on 7 November in Busan.Tveit said that the WCC 10th Assembly has an important dimension, being held in the Republic of Korea; this has brought churches closer to the realities of an unresolved conflict. He said that through the WCC 10th Assembly, churches have been able to express solidarity with Korean people across South and North, strengthening the WCC’s efforts for peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula.Tveit stressed the importance of addressing the issues of migrants. “We see refugees trying to enter Europe for a variety of reasons – climate change as well as political reasons. This is a situation that must now be addressed at an international level,” he said.Tveit affirmed that the WCC mandate presented at the assembly endorses that “we in Christian solidarity do not only support one another but reach out to anyone, who need our support and speaks out in front of the powers seeking peace and justice,” said Tveit.“The WCC has an important role of being part of the wider ecumenical reflection on the definition and initiatives for mission and evangelism,” said Tveit. “We carry a legacy of important discussions about mission; but we also represent a richness of traditions and churches’ practices of mission in their daily lives,” he added.In his conclusion, Tveit identified “just peace” as an important component in the strategic direction for the work of the WCC. He stressed the significance of defining future priorities, as well as reflecting on the “unique value” of WCC programs.The WCC assembly, which gathered some 3,000 participants from around the world from 30 October to 8 November, addressed the theme “God of life, lead us to justice and peace”.Decisions, reflections, prayers close the WCC assemblyThe Assembly reviewed the work of the WCC, using the report Faith That Does Justice: The Journey of the WCC from Porto Alegre to Busan. Areas of ecumenical engagement and concerns outlined include eco-justice, peace-building and advocacy, incorporating theological understandings and promoting ecumenical formation of youth.It is in the context of the “pilgrimage of justice and peace” that we hope to further the WCC programmes inspiring the churches to work together, said Rev. Sharon Watkins, moderator of the WCC’s programme guidelines committee.While new directions in the financial strategy for the WCC’s work were developed, the WCC Assembly also received a financial report presented in Busan.The Assembly took action by adopting statements and minutes on issues including peace and reunification of the Korean peninsula, politicization of religion and the rights of religious minorities, human rights of stateless people, and working towards just peace.The delegates expressed concern on Christian presence and witness in the Middle East, the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, among other issues raised at the assembly.The Assembly has elected a 150 -person central committee which will serves as the decision-making body of the WCC until the next assembly in 7 to 8 years. The new committee counts 39 % women, 61%, men; 13% youth, 5%, indigenous persons, 2%, persons with disabilities; 68%, ordained: 68%, and 32% of the members of the WCC central committee are lay persons.The WCC Central Committee has elected Dr. Agnes Abuom from the Anglican Church of Kenya as moderator, and as vice-moderators Metropolitan Gennadios of Sassima of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and Rev. Dr Mary Ann Swenson of the United Methodist Church, USA.The Assembly has also appointed eight presidents to represent the WCC in their respective regions. The WCC presidents are Rev.

We are only concerned that citizens of Delhi NCR are able to breathe fresh clean air and while the court is shut, we don’t want anything to happen during these nine days”- CJI SA BobdeThe Court further observed that the NCC, NSS & Bharat Scouts & Guides be deployed in the respective states for assisting in the monitoring of stubble burning in the agricultural areas in the states.”We trust that the authorities in charge shall place them at the disposal of the “Lokur Committee” for this purpose. In addition, we direct that the teams already in existence in Punjab & Haryana meant for preventing stubble burning shall report to & take instructions from the Lokur Committee.

Unarmed man killed by Sacramento police shot 8 times, 7 in the back: Private autopsy

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Stephon Clark was shot eight times — including seven times in the back, according to a private autopsy ordered by the family.Civil Right Attorney Benjamin Crump released an independent autopsy report in the police shooting death of Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old black man who was shot at 20 times by Sacramento officers in his grandmother’s backyard.The other two bullets hit Clark in the neck and the left side of his body. The only bullet that struck him from the front was the one on the left side of his body.The private autopsy was performed by Dr. Bennet Omalu, known for his work in discovering chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).“The narrative that had been put forth was that they had to open fire because he was charging at them,” Crump said during a news conference Friday. “Well obviously based on Dr. Omalu’s findings in the family’s autopsy it suggests all the bullets were from behind.”On March 18, officers were responding to a 911 call reporting someone breaking car windows in the 7500 block of 29th street.Police found Clark in the backyard and believed Clark was armed with a gun and fired, “fearing for their safety.”No gun was found at the scene. Police said the object was a cell phone.The Sacramento police department released the body camera footage and helicopter footage three days after the shooting.California’s attorney general and the police department are conducting an investigation into what happened that night.The shooting sparked widespread protests in California and New York and responses from Black Lives Matter, the NAACP and the Sacramento Kings basketball team.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the fatal police shooting of Stephon Clark at a White House briefing on Wednesday.She described the shooting as a “terrible incident” but also said that the problem is “something we feel should be left up to local authorities.”Sanders went on to add: “The president is very supportive of law enforcement. But at the same time, in these specific cases and these specific instances, those will be left up to local authorities to make that determination and not something for the federal government to weigh into.”Clark was laid to rest on Thursday, at a public service that was held at BOSS church in south Sacramento.The Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy.“This is a national fight. Stephon has woke up the nation. We all stand with Stephon Clark,” Sharpton said to the crowd. “We are going to make Donald Trump and the whole world deal with the issue of police misconduct.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Suspect in killing of reputed Gambino family boss ‘Franky Boy’ Cali appears in court with ‘MAGA Forever’ scrawled on his hand

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The man police suspect of killing a reputed mob boss appeared in court Monday as investigators work to piece together whether or not the assassination had anything to do with the mafia.New York Police Department detectives announced over the weekend that 24-year-old Anthony Comello was the suspect in the shooting death of Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali, who is believed by police to be a boss of the Gambino crime family.Comello appeared in court in Ocean County, New Jersey, on Monday afternoon and waived his right to fight extradition to New York.He raised up his left hand during the court appearance, showing a number of phrases scrawled on his palm, including what appears to be “MAGA Forever” written twice, and the phrase “United We Stand,” as well as other markings.Investigators are still working to pin down a motive for the shooting on March 13, which marked the first alleged mob boss murder in New York in over 30 years.Comello made conflicting statements to police on Saturday, which has changed the alleged motive to the fatal shooting.Officials initially believed the killing was related to Cali’s alleged mob ties, but sources now believe the suspect was dating one of Cali’s female relatives, and at some point Cali told the suspect to stop seeing her, sparking a conflict.Comello had multiple discussions with detectives but has since retained an attorney and the police’s questioning ceased, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a press conference on Saturday after Comello was taken into custody.Cali’s killing was captured on grainy surveillance video. It shows the suspect drive up to the home in a blue pickup truck, come to a stop, then suddenly reverse. The pickup truck then crashes into Cali’s parked Cadillac SUV, multiple police sources told ABC News.The force of the impact knocked the license plates off the SUV, sources added.Cali then got out of his car and talked to the suspect, police sources said. The two men shook hands, and then Cali turned his back to put the license plate inside the SUV.Cali then got out of his car and talked to the suspect, police sources said. The two men shook hands, and then Cali turned his back to put the license plate inside the SUV.That’s when the suspect pulled out a 9mm handgun and fired six bullets into Cali, police officials said.Police are still investigating whether the accident in front of Cali’s house that preceded the shooting was a “ploy” to lure Cali outside.Detectives discovered a fingerprint on Cali’s SUV and the suspect was tracked by his phone, sources said.Shea confirmed forensic teams recovered fingerprints from Cali’s SUV.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Flood costs are highest in formerly redlined areas

first_img Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink (Getty, iStock)Flooding costs U.S. homeowners billions of dollars every year, and new data shows that those costs are highest in areas that were previously redlined, Bloomberg CityLab reported.The analysis, compiled by Redfin using information from the First Street Foundation and the University of Richmond’s Mapping Inequality project, found that more than $107 billion worth of homes that are at high risk for flooding are in big cities’ historically redlined neighborhoods.“Put another way, 8.4% of homes in historically redlined neighborhoods face high flood risk nationwide, compared with 6.9% of homes in historically greenlined neighborhoods,” according to the report. A “greenlined” neighborhood is one that was deemed more desirable — and, historically, ones where the population was predominantly white.Sacramento, California had the highest racial flood risk disparity according to Redfin’s analysis. More than 1 in 5 homes in the capital city’s formerly redlined neighborhoods face a high probability of flooding today, compared to 11.8 percent of homes in areas that were not redlined.Flood risk affects property values, which in turn can further entrench patterns of homes in once-redlined areas gaining less equity than those in non-redlined areas. In Chicago, the total value of homes at high flood risk reached $3.6 billion in non-redlined areas versus $19.7 billion in redlined areas, a difference of more than $16 billion. In New York City, the difference is more than $12.6 billion, according to the report.[Bloomberg CityLab] — Keith Larsen Climate ChangeHousinghousing discriminationReal Estate and Politicslast_img read more
