GAFCON urges restrictions on Lambeth Conference invites

first_img John Hobart says: June 25, 2018 at 7:49 pm GAFCON has made a tactical decision to define themselves by what they’re against (same sex marriage mostly) rather than what they’re for (hard to tell what that is exactly). Groups do this when they’re worried about being cohesive and want to establish an identity (we’re the moral ones, unlike those others!). This often works in the short term but always ultimately fails.I have to believe that whatever most concerns the actual parishioners of African Anglican churches, it definitely it isn’t whatever “practices” might be going on in the bedrooms of American Episcopalians. They surely have more important worries their churches need to attend to. Steve Price says: Rector Tampa, FL Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Anglican Communion, June 27, 2018 at 11:02 am I was unaware that I have failed to criticize efforts to impression, if not worse, gay people in many of those African countries. Thanks for making me aware that I must have failed to do this.

People who are clinging to a literal (and not contextual) interpretation are fearful that the bottom is falling out of social order. The people of the Global South have not been exposed to modern methods of Biblical interpretation. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Matt Ouellette says: Matt Ouellette says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Jerry Hannon says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA June 27, 2018 at 10:09 pm Not sure which point you needed help making but I do have an answer to your question about a solution.Yes there is one.It’s a calendar and the passing of this generation. Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Martinsville, VA June 26, 2018 at 12:32 am Is it wrong for anyone to posit that the “interpretations” you refer to have no more, and and perhaps even less, Biblical support than the ones that GAFCON believes? A yes or no answer makes the division irreconcilable it seems to me. Any solutions out there?

Perhaps our dynamic and loving Presiding Bishop can soothe their ruffled feathers, but I doubt that even Bishop Curry can change their pharisaical approach to life. In the meantime, what have they done in their own jurisdictions to modify the hateful and often destructive ways of their governments and general societies. Hypocrites! June 27, 2018 at 7:28 pm Steve,Thanks for making my point! Lambeth Conference June 26, 2018 at 8:27 am In my opinion, it’s not much different than disagreements over the role of women in society and the church. You have more literalist readings which promote a patriarchal societal structure and deny women ordination, and you have more nuanced interpretations which acknowledge the patriarchal cultural norms present when the Scriptures were written are not inherent the gospel. While there is still disagreement over this issue, Anglicans have learned how to walk together despite our disagreements. I think we can figure out how to do the same with affirming interpretations as well.

Acts 2:38 sates we must repent, and when we study the full council of the scriptures it is clear that any sexual acts outside of a male/female marriage is sin. Romans 3:23 states the wages of sin is death, therefore this is a heaven or hell issue for Gafcon which means it is full of love wanting to see mankind redeemed by our savoir Jesus Christ. June 26, 2018 at 10:43 pm John, I believe you will find that you have it a bit backwards. Please see Matthew 7:5. June 26, 2018 at 11:55 am My biggest issue with some of the GafCon provinces is they are openly encouraging schisms within other provinces .I don’t see how they can be allowed to remain within The Anglican Communion to carry out their Trojan Horse strategy Steve Price says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY June 25, 2018 at 10:29 pm No one is saying what the Bible says “ain’t so.” We are arguing that the Scriptures can be read in a way that affirms LGBTQ+ people and their relationships just like cisgender heterosexual people. Many scholars and theologians have done so. I pray that, for the sake of LGBTQ+ people in Africa, these interpretations can win out over the harmful interpretations that GAFCON continues to perpetuate.

The Church sent missionaries to Africa who endured privation and suffering while converting Africans to believe the Bible meant what it said. Now they’re being told it “ain’t so”. Poor devils don’t realize that the world has moved on. They should spend more time worrying about their own problems and leave the true Bible meanings to those more able to deal with the reality of today. Should they be required to abandon the fact that the Bible , as the missionaries taught them, does speak directly to marriage and accept that the LGBTQ+ church presence requires, according to some, a “tone of openess” entirely foreign to them? It appears that the convictions of all involved do indeed stand in the way of Church “inclusiveness”. It doesn’t appear to me that these positions are reconcilable. Maybe they shouldn’t be.

Standing Rock win in court after years of perseverance

first_imgBy Alison CagleMarch 25 — This is a statement from Earthjustice attorneys for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe on the recent legal victory against the DAPL permit to route the pipeline under the Missouri River, which was granted by the Trump administration.Water Protectors, Standing Rock camp.A federal judge struck down permits for the Dakota Access Pipeline, even after COVID-19 precautions led to an unconventional day in court.For the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, there has never been any question of backing down from the fight to protect their homeland from the Dakota Access Pipeline.Every year since 2016, the Tribal council has voted unanimously to continue legal challenges to the pipeline, which shuttles 600,000 barrels of crude oil a day within a mile upstream from the Standing Rock reservation. An oil spill into the nearby Missouri River would destroy the Tribe’s way of life. Earthjustice has represented the Tribe in its litigation.On March 25, the Tribe gained a significant victory after a federal court struck down a permit to route the pipeline under the Missouri River, finding that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers failed to consider the health and environmental impacts to the Tribe in the event of an oil spill. The court ordered the Corps to complete a full environmental review, and it also asked each side to weigh in on whether the pipeline should be shut down in the meantime.The legal victory vindicates the Standing Rock Sioux’s perseverance. After the Tribe’s initial stand inspired global solidarity and a halt to the pipeline’s construction, the early wins were tragically reversed by the Trump administration, the oil started flowing, and the struggle shifted to the courts. The Tribe stood their ground through four years of legal fight and counting.“After years of commitment to defending our water and earth, we welcome this news of a significant legal win,” says Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Mike Faith. “It’s humbling to see how actions we took four years ago to defend our ancestral homeland continue to inspire national conversations about how our choices ultimately affect this planet. Perhaps in the wake of this court ruling the federal government will begin to catch on, too, starting by actually listening to us when we voice our concerns.”Last week’s hearing took place despite unprecedented hurdles, as traveling to D.C. became too dangerous amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Seattle-based Earthjustice attorney Jan Hasselman cancelled his flights and hotels — including a side trip to visit his mother in D.C. — and requested to hold the hearing via teleconference.Yet heedless of the public health risk, Dakota Access’s lawyers, who are based in D.C., vehemently pushed back.“They didn’t really have any good reasons,” says Hasselman. “It was incredibly tone-deaf to demand an in-person hearing in the middle of a public health crisis. But the court handled it very fairly. Nobody was at a disadvantage.”On the day of the hearing, Hasselman delivered his case via phone, arguing that the Army Corps never fully assessed the imminent danger to the Tribe should the pipeline rupture. Despite not being able to read the courtroom or see the judge’s body language, Hasselman found ways to make the virtual accommodation work: Surrounded by fact sheets and regulatory citations taped to the wall of his home office, Hasselman had everything he needed to answer the judge’s questions.The Tribe has persisted in challenging DAPL through the ups and downs of court victories and setbacks. In December 2016, the Obama administration put the pipeline on hold — only to have President Trump reverse that order on his second day in office. Even after a federal judge in late 2017 ordered the Army Corps to take into account the Tribe’s criticisms, construction continued. The Army Corps ignored that judge’s instructions.The massive 2016 gathering of Tribes and allies defending Standing Rock Sioux territory from DAPL captured the world’s attention and attracted international media coverage. It helped give rise to a global movement of Indigenous resistance to fossil-fuel infrastructure projects.The March 25 court ruling could be the beginning of the end for the pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is now preparing to argue that DAPL should be shut down while the Army Corps completes its review.“This validates everything the Tribe has been saying all along about the risk of oil spills to the people of Standing Rock,” says Hasselman. “The Obama administration had it right when it moved to deny the permits in 2016, and this is the second time the court has ruled that the government ran afoul of environmental laws when it permitted this pipeline. We will continue to see this through until DAPL has finally been shut down.” (tinyurl.com/t3uph9d) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Factors Impacting Real Estate Trends

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / The Factors Impacting Real Estate Trends The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Kristina Brewer  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share 1Save July 21, 2018 2,911 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Editor’s Note: This feature originally appeared in the July issue of DS News.This month, DS News sat down with Dr. Lynn Fisher to discuss the housing trends impacting the market. Fisher focuses her research on examining affordable housing, home building, and mortgages. Before joining American Enterprise Institute (AEI) in April, Fisher was VP of Research and Economics and the Executive Director of the Research Institute for Housing America at the MBA, and on the faculty of Washington State University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the University of North Carolina. At MIT, she was director of the Housing Affordability Initiative in the Center for Real Estate. She has been published in several academic journals, including the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, The Journal of Urban Economics, Real Estate Economics, and The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics. Fisher has three degrees from Pennsylvania State University: a doctorate in business administration with a concentration in real estate finance, a master’s in business administration, and a bachelor’s in international politics.Congratulations on your new role at AEI. One market indicator that AEI is known for is the National Mortgage Risk Index (NMRI)—can you share with our readers what the NMRI calculates and what it is currently forecasting for the market?NMRI calculates the average expected stressed default rate for newly originated agency loans based on debt-to-income ratios (DTIs), combined loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, borrower credit score, loan term, and purpose.The stressed default rate reflects the performance of loans originated in 2007 with the same characteristics. This measure shows that credit has been expanding over the past five years. Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-insured loans in particular—which are largely provided to first-time homebuyers and involve considerable risk layering—have increased in risk by 6 percentage points over this time in terms of averaged stressed default rate. The NMRI shows that if we have another stress event, like the one from 2007, more than 27 percent of FHA-insured loans would be expected to default.The riskiness of loans securitized by Fannie Mae has also risen notably in the months following the decision in mid-2017 to allow DTIs over 45 percent without compensating factors. We have seen a recent 1 percentage point jump in Fannie’s NMRI driven by the fact that their share of newly originated loans with DTIs over 45 rose to more than 19 percent in January, up from just 6 percent of loans in September 2017. In mid-March, Fannie adjusted course and implemented an update to Desktop Underwriter to reduce risk layering. In the coming months, we will be able to track how effective the policy adjustment was in moderating risk.Because inventories for sale are so low, any increase in the provision of leverage by the market—even if loans appear to be well-underwritten—serves to push home prices even higher, worsening the affordability problem.Are there actions the industry can take to alleviate the inventory constraint?Regarding low inventories of homes for sale, there is no easy fix, since potential home sellers are typically also prospective home buyers. If, as prospective buyers, households don’t believe that they can buy what they want for a reasonable price, they won’t put their home on the market in the first place, choking inventory. It will take time to add enough new homes to sufficiently expand the sales inventory and break out of this cycle.As a result, our data shows that total home sales are decelerating at the national level. The combination of new and existing home sales increased by 9 percent in 2015 and 10 percent in 2016 before slowing to a pace of just 5 percent growth in 2017. According to the National Association of Realtors, the inventory of existing homes for sale has fallen to historic lows, and many forecasters expect growth in existing home sales to slow even further this year, perhaps remaining about flat relative to 2017 due to a lack of inventory. This means that purchase volumes will remain fairly flat for lenders but for the bump in volume they will see from rising home prices.How do these trends compare to what we have seen historically?Historically, credit policy tends to lean into house price booms, expanding credit and exacerbating price increases on the upstroke. This time is no different and credit policy is allowing prices to grow faster than incomes. The pricing correction, when it comes, could be large, and borrowers with high DTIs and high loan-to-value ratio mortgages will have less ability to withstand even a mild recession. Tax reform and increases in government spending have recently juiced the economy past sustainable levels, increasing the likelihood of a recession in about two years’ time. Mortgage professionals need to remain vigilant that they are not relying solely on continued house price growth as the basis of their expectations about future loan performance.What can we expect to see in the housing market as we move into the latter half of 2018?If the credit box continues to expand as it did in 2017, then there is no doubt that home prices will continue to climb for the rest of 2018. Real wage growth is also expected to add demand to the housing market by the end of the year. In combination, these trends will keep the pressure on prices without providing much relief in terms of affordability. Only expanding our housing stock will provide more affordable housing. However, the accumulation of local government restrictions on building will continue to impede the creative expansion of our housing supply, even in the presence of record-high prices.How can lenders provide products to their borrowers to help insulate them from market fluctuations?Lenders should seek to make their borrowers resilient and able to adapt to a changing economy and housing market. Faster amortizing mortgages—for example, a 20-year versus a 30-year loan— help households build equity faster and increase the possibility that borrowers can ride out a downturn in prices. At the same time, no individual or lender can hold back the rising tide of credit availability and the pressure that competition puts on your business. As an industry, lenders need to be speaking out and ask that government agencies hold the line on credit policy. It can be done. The Rural Housing Services, for example, has an NMRI score that is about flat over the last five years.Ultimately, our housing supply is created locally. Lenders should also be part of their local process for regulating and planning for housing. They should educate local officials and help them find ways to expand supply. Although surprising to some, we don’t need subsidies to build “affordable” housing. We simply need to allow market actors, by right, to build economical housing in much greater quantities than we currently permit. Even incremental density increases—up-zoning from single family to duplexes or four-unit to eight-unit buildings—can make a big difference for the ability of a community to accommodate households at a wide range of prices and rents.

Federal Agencies Issue Statement on Loan Modifications

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), federal financial institution regulatory agencies, in consultation with state financial regulators, issued a revised interagency statement encouraging financial institutions to work constructively with borrowers affected by COVID-19 and providing additional information regarding loan modifications. The revised statement also provides the agencies’ views on consumer protection considerations.The revised statement clarifies the interaction between the interagency statement issued on March 22, 2020, and the temporary relief provided by Section 4013 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020. Section 4013 allows financial institutions to suspend the requirements to classify certain loan modifications as troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). The revised statement also provides supervisory interpretations on past due and nonaccrual regulatory reporting of loan modification programs and regulatory capital.The agencies encourage financial institutions to work with borrowers and will not criticize institutions for doing so in a safe-and-sound manner. The agencies view prudent loan modification programs offered to financial institution customers affected by COVID-19 as positive and proactive actions that can manage or mitigate adverse impacts on borrowers, and lead to improved loan performance and reduced credit risk.The agencies’ examiners will exercise judgment in reviewing loan modifications, including TDRs, and will not automatically adversely risk rate credits that are affected by COVID-19, including those considered TDRs. Regardless of whether modifications are considered TDRs or are adversely classified, agency examiners will not criticize prudent efforts to modify terms on existing loans for affected customers.For borrowers who may be facing foreclosure, the CFPB has released several resources to help consumers take steps to protect their finances during the COVID-19 pandemic, including a reminder to consumers to contact their lenders if they cannot make their payments. Many lenders are now providing forbearance loan extensions, a reduction in interest rates, and/or other flexibilities for repayment. The Federal Housing Finance Agency has authorized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to enter into additional dollar-roll transactions—provide mortgage-back securities investors with short-term financing.
