Would that our world could reach that goal.And that the marriage rite is the same, for common people and royalty alike.And the hymns, loved them.

The Brits, especially the aristocracy, tend to be quite stuffy and your sermon leveled the field. I found myself rooting you on and enjoying the pained looks on many faces.

Thank you, Bishop Curry, for such a vision, and may God continue to hold you up in your Christ-filled work. HG FULLER says: May 21, 2018 at 4:22 pm Bishop Curry, I truly enjoyed your message and found it inspirational. I am not a cradle Episcopalian (I came to the Episcopal Church as an adult), and I found your message marked by love and family by use of those old spirituals that were embedded within. Love and fire is what point people to the altar to wed, and you gave us some tools to continue to man the flames of that holy fire to do the Lord’s work. It is sad to me that some were distracted by the reference to slavery (the source of those songs) and the reference to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and seemed to have missed the message of love and service that comes from the passion fires of love…the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord! Thank you. It truly made me feel increasingly connected to what is now a familiar service. Submit an Event Listing May 21, 2018 at 3:52 pm When I heard that Bishop Curry would give the sermon at the royal wedding, I felt gladness that the inclusive message of the Episcopal Church would be heard by more people than ever before.

Beautifully thought, written, and preached… you give us new hope. May 21, 2018 at 2:32 pm Based on the pro Bishop Curry comments, I should probably leave the EC. MLK and slavery have NOTHING to do with this wedding. Why did Bishop Curry have to politicize a wedding? Love is a grand and wonderful thing, but unfortunately love does NOT cure poverty or many other ills. I could see that Bishop Curry was enthusiastic about his topic; however, the wedding was NOT the venue to go on a lengthy discourse about love and fire. Sadly, the overall wedding was too lengthy. I guess it gave the “news media” something to fill the time slot. Usually, Anglican/Episcopal weddings are much shorter. Anyway, I pray that the new wife/husband have a loving and successful marriage. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Cathryn Lamb says: Comments navigation Newer comments May 20, 2018 at 2:54 am It was nothing more than a high priced circus. All they needed was the Holy-Roller PB of THE Episcopal church and they got it. How did this prince marry without his now wife had not gotten an annulment. Guess this church doesn’t require relief from an illicit marriage so they still are not married in the eyes of the church. This is what you get when you allow gays as priests along with females in places they don’t belong. Imagine a PB presiding over a lesbian wedding. An overt slap in the face of the True God. This used to be a beautiful church with morals and faith now it is an empty social shell.Thank you. This is just one of many posts that will not see the light of day. Speaking of freedom of speech. Yes we are cradle Episcopalians but left to return to the Roman Rite a true church.

I’m wondering if you’ve closely read the Gospels lately. I cannot think of a more political (pertaining to what is in the best interest of the community) teacher/rabbi/preacher than Jesus.

Primus, Claypool Lennon & Duo De Twang Join Forces For New Year’s Celebration

first_imgEdit this setlist | More Primus setlists Les Claypool fans were in luck this year, as their favorite bassist rang in the New Year with three of his prized projects at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA: Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang, The Claypool Lennon Delirium and Primus, who were using the occasion to also celebrate their 25th anniversary. Each band is somehow both unique and uniquely Claypool, highlighting the many influences to his style in a truly celebratory manner.For the Americana side, the opening set from Duo de Twang proved to be a perfect display. The Duo de Twang features Claypool alongside his longtime collaborator and high school friend, Bryan Kehoe, playing acoustically-inspired covers of staple songs. Next up was The Claypool Lennon Delirium, who threw down a psychedelic set at the tail end of an incredible debut year for them. The collaboration between Claypool and Sean Lennon produced one of the best albums of 2016, The Monolith of Phobos, and that music has only come to life in the live setting. CLD played songs from the new album, as well as some choice covers including King Crimson’s “In The Court Of The Crimson King”.Claypool Lennon’s cover of “In The Court Of The Crimson King” can be seen below.But of course, the heart of Claypool’s musicianship stems from Primus, the trio with guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. With a totally unique sound that’s part jam, rock, metal, jazz and funk, Primus came out swinging to usher Oakland fans into the New Year. The band played a number of their well known tunes, including “John the Fisherman,” “Here Comes The Bastards,” “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver,” “My Name Is Mud” and more, delighting their longtime fans with a killer set. They encored with “Southbound Pachyderm” as well, ending the night with a remarkable finale.You can watch a couple of videos from Primus, including their New Year’s countdown into “Man on the Silver Mountain”, and see the full setlist, below.Setlist: Duo de Twang | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA | 12/31/16Set: Amos Moses, Bridge Came Tumbling Down, Booneville Stomp, Buzzrds of Green Hill, Jerry Was A Race Car DriverSetlist: The Claypool Lennon Delirium | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA | 12/31/16Set: There’s No Underwear In Space, Astronomy Domine, Cricket and the Genie (Movements I & II), Breath of a Salesman, The Monolith of Phobos, Cosmic Highway*, In the Court of the Crimson King, Boomerang Baby, Mr. Wright, Boris the Spider, Tomorrow Never Knows* = w/ Skeriklast_img read more

MMH and BCSC open acute care site

first_imgBatesville, IN—MMH, Batesville Community School Corporation, and Ripley County Health Department are partnering together in an effort to reduce exposure of acute care patients to healthy patients at MMH in the ER and the physician practices as well as increase access to care,are opening an Acute Care Extension Site. According to Paul Ketcham, Batesville Community School Corporation Superintendent, the site will be only in the Primary School office and not in any classroom, gym or cafeteria spaces at this time. Ketcham advises that staff clean the office between each patient and each day with the highest standards to make sure that it is safe when school resumes.  This innovative approach will utilize the school’s telehealth technology to connect MMH patients with our primary care providers.

Uncertain terrain: social media and sexual assault narratives

first_imgWhen Alexis, reported her sexual assault to Title IX investigators at Chapman University in December 2014, the last thing she expected was that officials would not believe her.“I don’t recall really altering my story drastically, but apparently [they said] I did,” said Alexis,, now a junior majoring in communication at USC,who declined to use her real name for privacy reasons. “They didn’t record anything [during the investigation], they just hand wrote notes. [It] was the main reason I transferred [to USC] — I didn’t feel like I was in a school that would take care of me.”Chapman University Lead Title IX Coordinator DeAnn Gaffney declined to comment on Alexis’ case.For some survivors, there is a struggle to regain the narrative — and control — of their daily lives following an assault. However, even though Alexis felt disappointed by this outcome, she found a space that allowed her to tell her own story: social media.In recent years, outlets such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Tumblr have become spaces where survivors like Alexis can connect with many others who share similar experiences, and can serve as advocacy platforms where survivors ultimately have the power to dictate their own narratives. But online spaces are not free from negative social reactions to assault: Victim blaming, shaming and a lack of survivor privacy are probable consequences of sharing an assault case on social media.Sharing storiesBuzzFeed recently became an example of social media’s ability to influence the sexual assault narrative. In June 2016, it published a piece that soon became one of the site’s most shared stories of the year: an open letter from a sexual assault survivor to her assailant, which created national headlines with a raw, powerful message that spread across social media.The letter served as a viral spark that reignited online discourse surrounding sexual assault on college campuses and added personal context to the Stanford rape case, in which Stanford student Brock Turner was found guilty of three counts of felony sexual assault but only sentenced to six months in jail.“Being able to broadcast [your assault] to everyone and turn it into something … and not be ashamed — I think that can definitely change the narrative,” Alexis said.Shideh Ghandeharizadeh | Daily TrojanAccording to a December 2016 New York Magazine editorial, the online outrage that followed revealed the power and potential of social media to portray the untold side of a story on behalf of sexual assault victims.“Social media brings you the empowerment you otherwise wouldn’t have had if you didn’t speak up,” Alexis said. “It could empower you to own what has happened to you and take control, because … you lose control when you are sexually assaulted.”According to therapist and clinical associate professor Kristen Zaleski, who works at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, social media can also be a valuable and unique place for survivors to find support because it provides a personalized platform to share stories.“The truth is, one in four women has a history of surviving a sexually violent episode,” Zaleski said. “So whenever you post something, you have a 25 percent chance that the person reading that has the same story, and is going to empathize with you, and maybe even share back or be inspired.”Aside from being a sexual assault survivor, Alexis is also an advocate on campus, where social media has become a key aspect of her work. Alexis is a representative for Violence Outreach Intervention and Community Empowerment, a program in which USC students educate their peers about gender-based trauma.“When I do my VOICE presentations, I tell people to friend me on Facebook or follow me, and I get a handful of people who do add me — they don’t necessarily talk to me, but they know that I am there if they ever want to talk,” Alexis said. “I also share articles and sometimes write longer thought pieces of my own … on the state of sexual assault on campuses in the United States and around the world.”Online issues Alexis’ social media advocacy began after her Title IX investigation, which was not ruled in her favor. Alexis’ alleged perpetrator was found not guilty, and her case was dismissed. She turned to Facebook as an outlet to explain what had happened to her — it is where Alexis’ story is told, undiluted by forces outside. According to Women Against Violence Against Women, a Canadian rape crisis center, rape culture fosters prevailing social attitudes that normalize or trivialize sexual assault and abuse. And while social media can undoubtedly empower survivors of sexual assault, Zaleski said it can also be a toxic space that perpetuates this problem.In a study she conducted in 2016 that examined the presence of rape culture within the comments section of online news articles, Zaleski found that victim blaming was the most prominent theme.Zaleski defines victim blaming as a common filter through which many people approach sexual assault. Instead of antagonizing the perpetrator, many will, either consciously or subconsciously, imply that the survivor is to blame for their own assault due to details such as their clothing, relationship status or degree of sobriety.“As people look for that affirmation online, and they read any of the comments after the 40-some articles we looked at, they would see that a lot of people wouldn’t think they were legitimately sexually assaulted,” Zaleski said. “They would believe it was [their] fault, or that [they were] complicit in it, and that [they] might feel like the police or judicial system might also blame [them].”Alexis also identified the double standards that come with speaking out about a sexual assault.“There’s this huge irony that when a survivor does something unexpected, like speak out, people say they must not be a real survivor, because a real survivor would be ashamed,” Alexis said. “It’s in that same sense where … if you tell your story as a way to fight back, people might be less likely to believe you, because they believe people don’t fight back.”Zaleski also warns against using social media as an outlet to immediately make sense of what has happened following a sexual assault. In times of trauma or vulnerability, she said that a face-to-face encounter with a professional should be the first priority.“I would encourage my clients to be hesitant to post something so publicly when you can’t erase that, ever,” Zaleski said. “After you have some distance from the trauma, and are making sense of it and looking for support and guidance in the aftermath, I think that’s a better time to identify yourself and put it out there.”In the same way, Alexis does not advocate for either speaking about ongoing sexual assault cases or revealing the identity of a sexual assault perpetrator on social media.“When I posted about my story, I offered that if any woman at Chapman would like to know my perpetrator, they could message me privately and I will let them know who he is,” Alexis said. “But I didn’t broadcast it to the world.”A changing landscapeThe prevalence and permanence of social media continues to contribute to both its appeal and risk. In the Steubenville High School rape case of 2012, two high school football players were found guilty of publicly and repeatedly sexually assaulting a female student. Because the assault was documented on Facebook and Twitter, the case drew national attention for the influence of social media on the initial prosecution and later widespread outrage.“The reason the men were caught is because they posted it online,” Zaleski said. “The detriment to that is that she, who had this horrible, violent, traumatizing thing happen to her, is now online forever, because of their actions.”Despite its risks, however, Alexis believes that the ability to share freely on social media contributes to one of its biggest advantages.“If you feel safe with the people you are linked with on social media…simply advocating for other survivors could be a form of healing,” Alexis said. “Educating [your friends] and expressing your frustrations, even if they are not knowledgeable of your situation, could be very helpful for you to get that indirect support.”last_img read more
