VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Anglican Communion, [Anglican Communion News Service] The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have called for a “great wave of prayer” for the evangelisation of England. In an “unprecedented step”, Justin Welby and John Sentamu have written to every parish priest in the Church of England, inviting churches across the country to take part in the focused prayer initiative in the week leading up to Pentecost Sunday.They say they want “to see a great wave of prayer across our land, throughout the Church of England and many other Churches” from 8 to 15 May. At the end of the week, a number of “beacon” events will be held – at St Paul’s Cathedral in London on Saturday 14 May; and at Durham, Coventry, Winchester, and Canterbury Cathedrals and St Michael le Belfrey in York, on Sunday 15 May.These beacon events, led by renowned worship leaders and preachers, will provide space for people to “pray for the renewal of the Holy Spirit and the confidence to share their faith,” a spokesman for Lambeth Palace said.Archbishop Justin will send a message via live video link to other beacon events taking place at the same time as the Canterbury event.“At the heart of our prayers will be words that Jesus himself taught us – ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,’” the two archbishops said in their letter to clergy.“It is impossible to overstate the life-transforming power of the Lord’s Prayer,” they say. “It is a prayer that is reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas.“It is famous enough to be spoken each day by billions in hundreds of languages and yet intimate enough to draw us ever closer into friendship with Jesus Christ.“It is simple enough to be memorised by small children and yet profound enough to sustain a whole lifetime of prayer.“When we pray it with sincerity and with joy, there is no imagining the new ways in which God can use us to his glory.”The archbishops are suggesting various ways churches can engage with the week of prayer; including the holding of day-long or week-long continuous 24/7 prayer; either as parishes, teams or deaneries; saying special prayers in Sunday worship; prayer walking; or handing out a novena prayer card to every congregation member.In their letter to clergy, Archbishops Justin and Sentamu say: “As we travel around the country, we are continuously encouraged by the faithfulness, commitment and courage of all our Partners in the Gospel. Your ministry in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, often in testing circumstances, is an inspiring testimony to the transforming work of our Lord.”They say that “ministry is empty and barren without prayer” and say that their hope is “for all Christians to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ; for all of us to have confidence to share the Gospel [and] for all to respond to the call of Jesus Christ to follow Him as disciples, to live out the Gospel and to seek God’s Kingdom from day to day.”Partners in the week of prayer initiative include 24-7 Prayer, HOPE, the World Prayer Centre, the Neighbourhood Prayer, Network, and the National Day of Prayer and Worship.Click here for more information.

BHF launches 100km trek series

All treks take on average 26 hours to complete.The first trek takes place in May, and takes participants from London to Oxford.  In June, supporters can take part in the London to Brighton trek, followed by London to Southend, and Glasgow to Edinburgh in July. The London events also offer 50k alternatives, and people can sign up to all of the events online.Nancy Smyth, BHF head of events said:“Our 100km treks are our most difficult challenge we have to offer our supporters. Over the 26 hours it takes most to finish, participants get to explore iconic routes in a way they never imagined, push themselves physically and raise essential funds for our life saving research.”According to a survey commissioned by the charity to mark the launch of the treks, over half of Brits (53%) consider a marathon to be the toughest fundraising challenge, followed by cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and Iron Man. A 100km walk comes in at eighth place.Top 10 toughest charity challenges:1.    Running a marathon2.    Cycling Lands End to John O’Groats3.    Iron Man4.    Mountain trek5.    Triathlon6.    Completing a one mile open water swim7.    Cycling 50 miles8.    Walking 100km9.    Tough Mudder10.  Sky diveHowever, according to BHF ambassador Sir Ranulph Fiennes, a 100km walk is more challenging than it may seem. He added: Advertisement BHF launches 100km trek seriescenter_img “It is not surprising that a 100km trek is not considered a difficult challenge, as walking is something we do every day. However a long distance walk should not be underestimated. Walking nonstop for over 26 hours will not only put an incredible strain on your body, but walking through the night and through all types of weather will also push you to the limits mentally, so you need to be prepared.The survey also revealed the age group most likely to take on such a challenge, and the main reasons for doing so. It showed that 16-24 year olds are most keen to take on a physical challenge (61%) for a charity. Connection to a charity was shown to be the biggest driver, with over a third (39%) citing this reason, closely followed by the desire to raise funds (30%), and personal achievement with 28% stating that they would sign up to improve fitness.

Artists to take over Limerick park kiosk

first_imgNewsLocal NewsArtists to take over Limerick park kioskBy Editor – November 12, 2014 1313 WhatsApp Carl Doran and Norma Lowney at the People’s Park kioskOVER the coming months, the kiosk at Limerick’s People’s Park will reopen as part of a series of multidisciplinary residencies.As part of the Limerick City of Culture programme, artists were asked to respond to a simple question:  “What would you do if you could have The Park Kiosk for a month?Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The first project in the Park Kiosk from November 17 is ‘Dog Tales’ by Carl Doran and it should prove of special interest to the city’s dog-owners.Carl explained, “I am inviting dog-owners to drop in for a short chat about their dogs. There will be tea and coffee available, a comfortable space for the dog and possibly some doggy treats too!”Carl will then photograph and draw the dog and during his final week in the kiosk he will make artwork for each dog/owner. The project will conclude with presentations, a reception for dogs/owners and a group dog walk.The kiosk has been in its city centre location since the mid-19th century and witnessed 150 years of changes within the city, until the last JR ice pop was sold in the late 1980’s.Each month will offer a new experience, as artists present work made specifically for this iconic building on the southern side of The People’s Park.The kiosk’s interior will be transformed into a green building promoting Limerick as an environmentally friendly and ecologically rich city as part of a project by artist Mary Conroy“I’m very excited about being given the opportunity to work in this little piece of history in the beautiful People’s Park. I’m looking forward to creating something new through a collaborative process”, she said.The artists have all approached the possibility of re-opening the kiosk in different ways. Some see it as a studio, a theatre, community centre and of course a shop. Each month the kiosk, its history and how it relates to The People’s Park and the city will be explored through different media and art forms.Norma Lowney’s project ‘The Theatre Shop’ will  transform the kiosk into a performance space. Norma will develop a piece of theatre based of shared memories of the kiosk, the People’s Park and of Limerick City of Culture to be performed in the kiosk in the run up to Christmas.For opening times visit limerickcityofculture.ie TAGSCarl DoranCity of Culturefeaturedfull-imagelimerickMary ConroyNorma LowneyPark KioskPeople’s Park WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Previous articleLimerick welcomes Andrew Stanley unrobedNext articlePensioners arrested in CIRA probe Editor Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email Advertisementcenter_img Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Linkedin Print Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed livelast_img read more

Seager brothers each hit home run but Dodgers win matchup with Mariners

first_img“He only got three (hits). That’s his fault,” Corey Seager said. “We still got the win so I’ll take that for sure.”Both Seager brothers hit home runs in the game, becoming the 10th pair of brothers to hit home runs for different teams in the same game, the first since Felipe and Cesar Crespo in 2001.“For sure, it was a lot of fun. It was a special moment,” Corey Seager said after both he and Kyle were caught on camera suppressing grins as the other brother passed them rounding the bases. “It was one of those things where you can go home and think about it, soak it all in. You try to be in the moment as much as possible. You’re still trying to win a game. But when you get around him, it was hard to not see your brother in your opponent. It was a lot of fun for sure.”Corey Seager’s homer was a three-run shot, the biggest hit in a five-run second inning that put the Dodgers up 6-2 against the sagging Mariners.But every time Ross Stripling gets into the Dodgers’ starting rotation, he turns into the babysitter in an 1980s era horror movie. He hears steps. And they’re coming from inside the house. LOS ANGELES — Little brother always gets his way.Before playing against his older brother, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager, in a regular-season game for the first time Monday, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager said he would be rooting for big brother to get four hits — “and we still win.”Kyle was on base four times, on three hits and a walk. And the Dodgers did win, though it took a five-run seventh-inning comeback to fulfill the younger Seager’s wish with an 11-9 victory over the Mariners.PreviousThe Dodgers’ Joc Pederson #31 catches a fly ball for an out during their game against the Mariners at Dodger Stadium, Monday, August 17, 2020.

(Photo by Hans Gutknecht, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandThe win extended the Dodgers’ streak to six consecutive (and the Mariners’ losing streak to the same). Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Tabbed to replace David Price in the season-opening rotation, Stripling’s always-tenuous hold on a rotation spot has slipped in each of his past four starts. Monday was the worst of the bunch. He faced 17 batters in three innings, retired just nine of them and gave up eight hits including three home runs in a five-run third inning to surrender the Dodgers’ early lead.“These guys are good fastball hitters so I felt I was going to get them out with offspeed through the night,” Stripling said. “But the fastballs that I threw were too much of a strike there. When I know I’m going to get them out with offspeed or at least try to get them out with offspeed, to give them fastballs to hit and do damage there is not the right call.“Really, I felt like I threw the ball well. It’s just that the mistakes I made, they hammered them.”In his first start of the season, Stripling was terrific, flashing a new changeup grip and allowing just one run on four hits in seven innings against the San Francisco Giants.In four starts since then, however, he has allowed 20 runs (15 earned) on 24 hits, eight walks and a hit batter in 18 2/3 innings — a 7.23 ERA and 1.77 WHIP.“Really at the end of the day, I feel like I’m throwing the ball well,” he said. “My velocity is up. If you are into analytics and all that stuff, my numbers are up. I’m throwing the ball maybe as good as I ever have. But the results aren’t necessarily on the mound. So it’s like how do we get those to transfer over to zeroes on the scoreboard?”The Dodgers’ overstuffed starting rotation currently goes six deep with Tony Gonsolin sticking around for another turn Tuesday and Dustin May running to the front of the pack for this year’s National League Rookie of the Year award.An off day Monday, Aug. 24 could bring changes. Alex Wood is also working back from a shoulder injury and could be ready to reclaim a spot in the rotation in another week or so.“Certainly performance matters,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, unwilling to be drawn into a discussion of Stripling’s future in the rotation. “You still trust Ross — the work, the preparation, the ability with his pitch mix to continue to make pitches. It’s been a little bit of a rough few starts. But Ross is going to find his way out of it.”The Dodgers were down 8-6 when Corey Seager led off the seventh inning with the family’s fifth hit of the night, a rocket off the glove of shortstop J.P. Crawford for a single. Another single and a walk loaded the bases for A.J. Pollock.Pollock stroked an RBI single into left field and Max Muncy forced in the tying run with a bases-loaded walk. The go-ahead run scored on a double play then Kiké Hernandez cleared the bases with a two-run home run.The five-run seventh gave the Dodgers 45 runs in the seventh inning or later this season to 12 for their opponents.“We’re relentless. We’ve always been that way,” Corey Seager said. “We’ve never given at-bats away. We pass the baton, that next-man mentality. You can’t give them away even when it’s late. It’s almost more important to not give them away when it’s late. That’s a big thing we pride ourselves on and we’ve done that for a long time now.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
