Yates, NDThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchI’ve been reading a remarkable book about the state of things in the Americas before the first Europeans arrived.  It’s by Charles Mann and it’s called 1491.  In one place he writes about the development of corn – south of here, in what is now Mexico.  Something that looks a lot like modern corn developed very quickly about 6000 years ago[1], probably from an ancestor that looks almost nothing like it.  That ancestor (teosinte) had very small hard kernels, and they didn’t stay on the stalk when they got ripe – they fell to the ground and got lost.  Somebody did a bit of very focused gardening with that ancestor to produce a plant with bigger, softer seeds that stayed together on the stalk, and it seems to have happened in a very short space of time – maybe as little as ten years.  In the same way that the first peoples of North America burned the plains to make better grazing, a people in Mesoamerica husbanded a new kind of grain that eventually transformed this part of the world.  And not just this part of the world, for corn or maize also became a basic foodstuff in parts of Europe and Africa.People in the highlands of Mexico put seed in the ground, went to bed and got up for several months, expecting those seeds to grow – first the stalk, then the head, then the grain – and then they went in and harvested.  They kept at their selective gardening until they had a crop that was far more fruitful and looked nothing like what they started with.  That’s what Jesus is talking about in this gospel.  Thousands of years later, in another part of the world, Jesus told a story of transformation that is recognizable in places that didn’t hear about him for another millennium after that.  The sacred hoop does include us all!Where does the kind of trust that encourages productive gardening or breeding better horseflesh come from?  Why do people keep looking or working for a result they haven’t seen yet?  Samuel didn’t really seem to expect to find a king in the youngest of Jesse’s brood, particularly not a mere shepherd boy.  Yet David turned out to be the high point of Israel’s earthly rulers, in spite of his yearning for Bathsheba.  God continues to work remarkable results out of surprising starting material.That is what Paul means by the confidence in new life that keeps us on the Jesus road.  We keep on because we have a glimmer of what is possible.  That promise gives us confidence, because we’ve already had a taste.  Why do the Lakota and Dakota stay in Christian community, and keep on expecting more of it?  Some of the answers to that question have to do with this very gathering – reworking what God planted here a very long time ago, partnering with the Creator, and continuing to expect more abundant fruit.Opportunities for that reworking or re-creating come all the time – like responding to an insult with grace, or finding humor in the midst of confrontation.  Sometimes those opportunities produce big changes in the culture.  The winter count[2] we first saw on Friday, emerging from a barrel of shame and confinement as something to be blessed and proudly shared, is a remarkable example.  I can’t imagine a more powerful way to tell the Jesus story to those who don’t know it, than in this gift offered by one who has listened well and met the creative power of the Great Spirit.There are other surprising crops, like the sun dance that has re-emerged on the rez in a search for healing from the pain of old destruction.  Don Metcalf told us about how it gave shape to the early life of the Niobrara Convocation.  And as Fr. John Floberg said, there is far more congruence between the Jesus story and the story of the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota than most people have looked for.  God has been drawing all of his children into deeper and more sacred relationship for a very long time.  Episcopalians say that our part in God’s mission is about reconciling the world to God in Christ – and that has a great deal to do with bringing together parts of the earthly community that seem to be in conflict.  We may not know exactly what the result will be, but our road, our dance, is toward that kind of healing.Healing and more abundant life always involve some kind of death or sacrifice.  Corn came from the ability to bind the seeds together on a stalk, rather than letting them scatter before harvest.  New life in Christ is born of daily sacrifices.  Sometimes those little deaths are as simple as thinking of another’s need before our own.  They can also be dying to our own over-confidence in the face of another person’s, and inviting dialogue between us.  Out of that comes a new community, a godly fellowship, and a holy people.The friends of Jesus among the Sioux are working toward the same end as their sisters and brothers who walk a more ancient spiritual path.  God can use the faithful wherever they are found, and if we’re faithful to what Jesus has given us, we will find partners to share in creating a healed world.  We’re invited to have confidence that God will help greater abundance emerge, if we will plant the seeds and expect a surprising harvest.The people at Pine Ridge are clearly hoping for something surprising when Taizé brothers and young adult Christians gather there in 2014.  The Spirit is working something in that new monastic community beginning to spring up on the Rosebud reservation.  God is doing a new thing in the youth work on the Standing Rock.God calls us beloved, and makes us a new creation, each morning, in every gathering and act of prayer acknowledging the creator’s active presence.  We are given seed to plant, and then meant to rise and sleep, expecting a surprising and abundant harvest.  This soil has enormous promise, for those who have the confidence to expect greater fruit.  We don’t know what the mature plant will look like, but we can hope that this tiny seed will produce a tree of life for all the birds – Eagles, Red Birds, Two Hawks, Noisy Hawks, and Driving Hawks[3], and maybe even some Fox, Elk, Bear, and Horse people.The kingdom of God is coming all around us, all the time, yet it takes the patient confidence of a corn farmer to find it.  Expect the children here to grow into vital contributors to the life of this community as adults.  At dawn and sunset, pray that each will be given what is needed to grow and be fruitful.  If we insist that the community support the lives of all its members, and realize that the hoop includes us all, there will indeed be an abundant harvest.  The hoop still needs mending, for we don’t always recognize that all our relations are essential to the health of the whole, yet the Spirit is at work, in the youngest children and wisest elders.  There is promise in each one, even the least likely.  The web of God’s abundance binds us together like kernels on the stalk.140 years of Niobrara gatherings are built on that kind of expectation.  This convocation will continue to be transformed for centuries of healing service if the gardeners are faithful and confident, planting and partnering with the Creator of plenty.  Small seeds and acts of faithfulness will mend the hoop.Wakan tankan, bind us together in fruitfulness, to be peace in abundance for all our relations.

Ca l’Amo is a plot of 42,385 m2 located at the north end of the San Mateo plain on the island of Ibiza. In it there is an area of pronounced topography and fanned by stone walls that generate an iconic landscape of the countryside of Ibiza. Over time and the progressive abandonment of agricultural activities, the terraces have been ambushed and today it is a forest area where mainly pine and juniper coexist.Save this picture!Cortesía de Marià Castelló MartínezThe intervention has been located taking advantage of the last of the terraces, between two existing dry stone walls and on the border between the rugged part of the plot and a flat and low area to the south west. This pre-existence in the territory has conditioned the disposition of the functional program and the adjacent free spaces, concentrating the intervention on it and leaving the rest in its natural state, unaltered.Save this picture!Cortesía de Marià Castelló MartínezSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Marià Castelló MartínezThe house has been organized in five clearly differentiated volumes, generating between them spaces of relation, services, visual connection with the outside and ventilation. The first three volumes house the program for a large family with an intense social activity. The fourth volume is intended for a large area of outer shade, while the fifth houses an annex with independent access for guests. Between the fourth and fifth volume is the pool and the main leisure and relationship area. The length of the five volumes is conditioned by the depth of the terrace on which the dwelling sits, which helps to integrate the intervention into the landscape.Save this picture!Cortesía de Marià Castelló MartínezSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Marià Castelló MartínezFor the materialization, dry construction systems have been chosen, with a widespread presence of wood and breathable and healthy solutions.

UN Secretary General pledges to take action on journalist safety

first_img February 23, 2017 – Updated on February 24, 2017 UN Secretary General pledges to take action on journalist safety Protecting journalistsInternational bodies ImpunityViolenceUnited Nations News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) urged UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to take steps to address the urgent issue of safety of journalists. Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Secretary General Christophe Deloire and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) Executive Director Joel Simon met with United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres today to discuss the #ProtectJournalists campaign to appoint a UN Special Representative for the safety of journalists. David Callaway, board nominee for president of the World Editor’s Forum, part of WAN-IFRA, an early supporter of the campaign, also attended the meeting.“On behalf of RSF, I welcome Secretary General Guterres’ strong personal commitment to the safety of journalists and a free and independent press, said Christophe Deloire, RSF’s Secretary General. The UNSG believes that these issues are fundamental to democracy and human rights and has pledged to take action. We are counting on him to make the UN more efficient so that journalists can be better protected.” “As journalists around the world are increasingly under attack physically and verbally it is encouraging and gratifying to have this kind of support from the Secretary General, said Joel Simon, CPJ’s Executive Director. We look forward to working with him to move this commitment forward.” The goal of the #ProtectJournalists campaign is to establish a concrete mechanism that enforces international law and thereby finally reduces the number of journalists killed every year in the course of their work.Statistics show that despite various UN resolutions related to safety of journalists and combating impunity, there have been few concrete results on the ground. In fact, the past five years have been the deadliest on record for journalists, with hundreds of journalists killed and many more attacked simply for doing their jobs. RSF reported that 78 journalists were killed in the year 2016 alone and impunity remains the norm, with full justice in only three percent of journalist murders in the past decade, according to CPJ research. Murder is the ultimate form of censorship, and when a journalist is killed the right to information for the broader public is also imperiled. The world’s major problems, from environmental issues to extremist violence, cannot be resolved without the work of journalists. A worldwide coalition of NGOs, media outlets, journalists and prominent public figures are supporting RSF’s initiative for the creation of a Journalist Protector. CPJ, the Associated Press, WAN-IFRA, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Bangkok Post, and the Brazilian Center for Investigative Journalism (Abraji) are just a few of the more than 120 organizations that have joined the coalition to date. This week several coalition members, such as the James W. Foley Foundation, the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression, and the Pakistan Press Foundation, sent letters to Secretary General Guterres echoing the call for the appointment of a Special Representative.

Jennifer Latheef sentenced to 10 years in prison

first_img MaldivesAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage at the 10-year prison sentence imposed yesterday on journalist and human rights activist Jennifer Latheef for a supposed “terrorist act” and said she had been the victim of a political trial.“She got this heavy sentence in large part because she is the daughter of exiled opposition leader Mohamed Latheef,” the press freedom organisation said. “The terrorism charges were just a device to silence a political opponent and gag an independent journalist. We call on President Gayoom to keep his promises of democracy and to ensure that Jennifer Latheef is retried by an impartial court that respects the right of defence.”The “terrorist act” supposedly committed by Latheef, now aged 32, was to have allegedly thrown a stone at a policeman during a demonstration held on 20 September 2003 in protest against the death of five prisoners of conscience under torture. The charge was based entirely on the testimony of police officers that was often contradictory.Latheef’s health has deteriorated steadily in recent weeks, largely due to the stress of the trial. She was hospitalised in early October and was unable to attend a hearing on 13 October at which five other dissidents on trial with her received 11-year sentences. Latheef was arrested at the end of yesterday’s trial. The authorities did not say where she had been taken.Latheef is a researcher and photographer with the Minivan Daily, a newspaper that currently has two other journalists in prison.
