Photo: Emily McFarlan Miller/RNS[Religion News Service – Milwaukee] More than 500 years ago, a monk named Martin Luther nailed 95 theses outlining his grievances with the Roman Catholic Church to the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany.On Aug. 7, members of the mainline Protestant denomination bearing Luther’s name taped 9.5 theses — expressing their concern for immigrants and refugees — to the door of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Milwaukee.The action was part of a prayer vigil for migrant children and their families during the ELCA Churchwide Assembly this week at Milwaukee’s Wisconsin Center.It took place on the same day the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America declared itself a “sanctuary church body,” signaling its support for immigrants.Both came in response to President Trump’s policies at the United States border with Mexico and his pledge to deport millions.“It just keeps getting worse and worse in terms of unaccompanied children, separated families, detention centers that are just horrific, and so what we wanted to say as a church body, as the Lutheran church, we wanted to now act with our feet and take action,” said Evelyn Soto Straw, director of unit operations and programs for the ELCA’s Domestic Mission.More than 570 voting members of the churchwide assembly signed up to participate in the prayer vigil at the ICE building. They were joined by staff from the ELCA and its AMMPARO (Accompanying Migrant Minors with Protection, Advocacy, Representation and Opportunities)  ministry, as well as members of the Greater Milwaukee Synod, the New Sanctuary Movement and Voces de la Frontera, a local grassroots organization.The group marched nearly a mile from the Wisconsin Center to the ICE building, carrying signs with messages like “We put the protest back in Protestant” and chanting “This is what the love of God looks like.”There, Bishop Paul Erickson of the Greater Milwaukee Synod opened the vigil in prayer to “Jesus Christ, immigrant and savior.”“Marching is fun, words are great, but action makes a difference,” Erickson told the crowd gathered in the street.The Rev. Erin Clausen of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod said she joined the vigil as a pastor, a mother and a spouse. Christians are supposed to bring the good news to everyone — “especially to those who are hurting and fearful,” Clausen said.She thinks of the children separated from their families and of what she would want others to do if that were her child, and her heart breaks, she said.Clausen marched alongside Iván Pérez, who is lead organizer and trainer on the Metropolitan Chicago Synod’s Antiracism Team.Pérez, who is Puerto Rican, said his faith gives him boldness to speak out in support of immigrants.He was “very happy and proud” of the ELCA after the vigil, he said as he marched back to the Wisconsin Center with the group.Hundreds of attendees at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly march to the ICE building in Milwaukee for a prayer vigil in support of migrant children and their families on Aug. 7, 2019. Photo: Emily McFarlan Miller/RNSThe ELCA Churchwide Assembly — the primary decision-making body of the ELCA — meets through Saturday.With more than 3.3 million baptized members, the ELCA is one of the largest Protestant Christian denominations in the United States. Its churchwide assembly includes 927 voting members from more than 9,100 congregations across the U.S. and the Caribbean.The assembly is considering several immigration-related resolutions this week.On Wednesday afternoon, after the lunchtime vigil, it passed a resolution declaring the ELCA a “sanctuary church body.” That term was proposed by Christopher Vergara, a voting member from the Metro New York Synod.“We continue to do God’s work with our hands in language the world understands,” Vergara said.Other measures approved so far this week by the assembly include a resolution recommitting to “being an advocate and justice seeker for immigrants,” advocating for Temporary Protected Status extensions and reaffirming its work with AMMPARO and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service to call for immigration policies and practices that keep families together.Another resolution, calling on congregations, synods and other church organizations to speak out against the “inhumane policies of harassment, detention and deportation implemented by the U.S. government,” also passed.Next, the assembly will consider a resolution requesting ELCA staff develop a plan for additional tools providing education and discernment “specifically directed to political rhetoric and the accurate portrayal of migrants and refugees.” Rector Albany, NY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Press Release Service Rector Smithfield, NC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Photo courtesy of Catherine George[Diocese of Los Angeles] Sarah Chester, 45, a trustee of St. Margaret’s Episcopal School in San Juan Capistrano, California, and her daughter Payton, 13, an eighth-grade student there, were among the nine people who died in a helicopter accident on Jan. 26 in Calabasas.Retired Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna also died in the crash.The other five crash victims were Orange Coast College basketball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri and daughter Alyssa; Christina Mauser, an assistant basketball coach; and the helicopter pilot, Ara Zobayan, a respected flight instructor.Gianna, Payton and Alyssa were members of an AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) basketball team based at Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy. The group was headed for a basketball tournament at the academy’s Thousand Oaks location when the crash occurred. According to news reports, Bryant and his family often traveled by helicopter to avoid traffic.Survivors in the Chester family include Sarah’s husband and Payton’s father Chris; Sarah and Chris’s twin sons Hayden and Riley, who are 10th graders at St. Margaret’s School; Sarah’s mother, Catherine George, a member of St. Matthias Episcopal Church, Whittier; and Sarah’s brothers Andy and Chris George.“This is an unimaginable loss for the Chester family and the entire St. Margaret’s community,” wrote William N. Moseley, head of St. Margaret’s School, in a letter informing faculty, students and parents of the tragedy. “We are a community in mourning. Our greatest strength is when our St. Margaret’s community pulls together with arms around one another, and this is one of those times.”“The deaths of Sarah and Payton, beloved members of our diocesan family, in a tragic accident receiving global attention serve as heartbreaking reminders of the connectedness and unity of all creation – of the indissoluble bonds among all who walk in faith,” said Bishop John Harvey Taylor of the Diocese of Los Angeles. “Each of us in the Diocese of Los Angeles is praying for Chris, Sarah’s husband; for Hayden and Riley, Payton’s brothers; for Catherine George of St. Matthias in Whittier, Sarah’s mother; for the whole St. Margaret’s Episcopal School community; and for the Bryant family and the families of all who died.”Catherine George told NBC News that Payton was an accomplished basketball player who “loved playing for Kobe Bryant. He was a great coach.”She said Sarah was “the heart of that family,” a devoted mother who spent much of her time nurturing her children’s talent for sports and the family’s love of travel.Payton had ambitions to play basketball in high school and college, said her uncle Andy George, a football coach at La Serna High School in Whittier. “She had the sweetest soul – the kindest, … gentlest person you would ever meet,” George told the Orange County Register. “She always had a huge smile on her face. Every time we would see her she would spend all her time with my little daughters.”George said his sister Sarah was “the one that everybody counted on. She was there for everyone. She was everything to her family, to our family. Anytime I needed anything, she was the person I went to.”– Janet Kawamoto is editor of The Episcopal News, a publication of the Diocese of Los Angeles.

It offered funerals for anyone who had died of AIDS, whether the person was a member of the congregation or not. The cathedral was burying up to 35 people a week at the height of the crisis in the early ’90s, according to the diocese, and many of the first panels of what became the AIDS Memorial Quilt were sewn there.AIDS 2020, the world’s largest conference on HIV and AIDS, will offer more than 600 virtual sessions and events. This year’s theme is resilience, drawing attention to the work that remains to be done despite decades of dramatic progress. The effort to end AIDS, organizers say, has entered a “new phase” in which the challenges are less centered around research and treatment and more about “a deteriorating human rights climate, repressive and punitive national laws in many countries across the globe, increasing xenophobia and social exclusion, and the widening gap between those with and without access to health services.”The interfaith service is open to all; any wishing to attend can RSVP on Facebook or Eventbrite.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Photo: Noé Montes/Faith & Leadership[Faith & Leadership] Marcy Dyment arrived for Christmas Day breakfast at All Saints Episcopal Church on a peaceful, convivial kind of morning in Pasadena, California.With her dog, Bullet, in tow, the 57-year-old former elementary school teacher chatted with parish leadership and about a dozen unhoused people from the church’s Safe Haven Bridge to Housing program.She and the other people gathered there were treated to packaged McDonald’s meals, lined up on socially distanced tables in accordance with coronavirus protocols.It was a reunion of sorts for Dyment, who had moved into permanent housing in December after three years of living on the streets. Dyment said she is grateful for the effort the church is making at a difficult and complicated time in a situation that is often messy and imperfect.“They’re just extremely tolerant, wonderful people,” she said.Dyment is just one of the now-housed folks who have been helped by All Saints’ Safe Haven Bridge to Housing, a ministry of the church launched in October 2020.Although a small number of unhoused people have lived on the All Saints campus for years, the church was overwhelmed with people needing shelter during the early days of the pandemic, when local facilities cut capacity and nearby City Hall closed.Through trial and error, planning and reaching out to community partners, All Saints has worked to create a manageable system in which 12 people without shelter can stay on church grounds and receive support services.Church leaders hope to expand this model to other congregations to create a network of support for the unhoused without overly taxing any one church.It’s particularly important to them that the model be workable for smaller and less wealthy congregations than the 3,000-member All Saints, said the Rev. Mike Kinman, the church’s rector.The process has not been easy, and All Saints leadership has had to pivot. But they are clear that it’s been worth it — not just because of what the church can now offer people who lack housing but also because of the community it has nurtured.Read the entire story at Faith & Leadership here.

FEMA warns of scam artists and price gouging

first_img Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Florida Residents: Beware of Fraud, Scams and Price Gouging State and federal recovery officials encourage Florida residents to watch for and report any suspicious activity or potential fraud from scam artists, identity thieves and other criminals who may try to prey on survivors vulnerable due to the recent hurricanes. They should also be on the lookout for price gouging by gas stations, hotels and other businesses serving disaster survivors in Florida.FEMA encourages survivors to be especially vigilant for these common post-disaster fraud practices:Fraudulent building contractorsUse only licensed local contractors backed by reliable references.Demand that contractors carry general liability insurance and workers’ compensation.Don’t pay more than half the costs of repairs upfront.Bogus pleas for post-disaster donationsVerify legitimate solicitations by asking for the charity’s exact name, street address, phone number and Web address.Phone the charity and confirm that the person asking for funds is a genuine employee or volunteer.Don’t pay donations with cash.Request a receipt with the charity’s name, street address, and phone number.Fake offers of state or federal aidBeware of visits, telephone calls or e-mails — claiming to be from FEMA or the State of Florida — asking for your Social Security number, bank account number or other sensitive information.Avoid scam artists who promise a disaster grant and ask for large cash deposits or advance payments in full.Federal and state workers never solicit or accept money or charge applicants for disaster assistance, inspections or help in filling out applications.Those who question the validity of a contact or suspect fraud are encouraged to call the toll free FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721 or the Florida Attorney General’s fraud and price gouging hotline at 866-966-7226. Complaints also may be made by contacting local law enforcement agencies.For more information on Florida’s disaster recovery visit fema.gov/disaster/4280, twitter.com/FEMA, facebook.com/FEMA, and fema.gov/blog, floridadisaster.org.

5 things you should buy during after-Christmas sales

first_imgAdam Berry / Stringer / Getty Images1. ClothingWe find a lot of excellent clothing deals after Christmas, from winning single-item deals — like four pairs of Dockers men’s pants for $60 — to the best sales we’ve seen all year from a huge variety of clothing retailers.Last year we saw sales that were either the best or tied for it from Nike, Gap Factory, Brooks Brothers, Tory Burch, Nautica, and many more. If you got some gift cards in your stocking, it’s probably a great time to spend them!Related: Give & Get: The Best Gift Card Freebie Deals for the Holidays UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Leo Hidalgo/Flickr3. ElectronicsAbout 31% of electronics deals we found last year during these sales were Editors’ Choice. Many stores offered large sales on refurbished items. Another notable deal was the best price we’d ever seen for a prepaid iPhone 5s ($150).One category of electronics stands out as a hot post-holiday buy: cameras. During After Christmas sales last year, 37% of camera deals were Editors’ Choice. Canon offered some of the hottest deals we’ve seen on both refurbs and new models in late January. We saw refurb lenses starting as low as $49.99 and up to $700 off new cameras.Also, if you didn’t find that new smartphone you wanted under the tree, don’t fret. Though comparatively few smartphone deals were Editors’ Choice (about 15%), prices didn’t stop dropping just because the holidays ended. Many phones reached new lows during this period, including the unlocked 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge, unlocked 64GB Nexus 6, and several Apple smartwatches.

Video gamesWhile you’re also likely to see a lot of great single-item deals — about 56% of the deals we came across during this time last year were Editors’ Choice — a few reliable large sales are worth mentioning. For PC gamers, Steam’s Winter Sale usually kicks off a few days before Christmas and continues through the New Year; Amazon frequently offers deep deals on PC games alongside it.Related: 7 Great Ways to Save on Steam GamesFor console gamers, there’s GameStop‘s “buy two, get one free” used item sale. It arrives just before New Year’s and is the best sale on used items the store offers each year. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Flickr / MilitaryHealth2. Exercise gearOnly about 10% of our fitness deals during this time last year were Editors’ Choice, but it’s still worth keeping an eye out if you’re trying to make good on your New Year’s resolutions. Why? Because some of the Editors’ Choice sales were flat-out excellent.NordicTrack offered one of the best sitewide sales we’d seen from it, at up to 50% off. Many other retailers, such as Running Warehouse and Cabela’s, offered deals comparable to the ones we saw from them during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you’re a last-minute Christmas shopper, here’s one type of sale you may not be considering: the After Christmas sale! Insanity?It sounds like it, but we first talked about this trend in 2012, when “After Christmas” sales appeared on Christmas Eve.The sales have steadily crept back since then, and last year we saw an “After Christmas” sale from Macy’s start on December 20, with orders still guaranteed for pre-Christmas delivery! (Talk about a strange definition of “After.”)Though most After Christmas sales still fall between Christmas and New Year’s, tapering off through the month of January, holiday creep continues to drive them earlier.Whether you delve into these deals before or after December 25, here are five particularly good product categories to keep an eye on. Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Laura Bittner5. Christmas decorOne of the best categories of items in After Christmas sales shouldn’t come as a shock: seasonal products. Thirty percent of our seasonal deals during the month after Christmas were Editors’ Choice. It’s not hard to find stores cutting prices by 75% or more. (Lowe’s cut up to 90% off!)Although you’ll have to wait a while to enjoy the 6-foot, pre-lit tree you bagged for $25, or the light strands you picked up for $2 each, it’ll be worth it. You can deck your halls with a smug smile at the far-more-expensive decor in next year’s ads, then treat yourself to some well-deserved cocoa for your stellar planning.
