Laurie Jean Wurm (left), Rector of Grace Van Vost, and the Rev. Thomas Murphy, Rector of St. Paul’s in Bergen. Photo: Nina Nicholson[Episcopal Diocese of Newark] “Darkness and danger – they’re not the only things that live here,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark Beckwith, bishop of the Diocese of Newark, after praying the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday at 14 sites of violent crimes in Jersey City.Jersey City’s three Episcopal congregations – St. Paul’s Church in Bergen, Church of the Incarnation and Grace Church Van Vorst – organized the procession, which drew more than 80 participants. Worshipers included members of neighboring churches, city officials and local police, who spent nearly two hours walking, praying and singing together along the 2.25 mile route.This public Stations of the Cross is an example of the diocesan movement towards a more missional approach, by bringing the altar into the world and listening to the stories in the community.The idea for this joint Good Friday observance originated in a brain-storming session months ago between the Rev. Thomas Murphy, rector of St. Paul’s, and the Rev. Laurie Jean Wurm, rector of Grace Van Vorst. “Laurie and I were tossing around ideas last summer about how we could go out together into our communities,” said Murphy, “and Good Friday came up as an idea.” The two priests contacted members of the Jersey City Police Department, with whom they’ve developed a relationship, and asked them to identify locations of recent violent crimes.As in many urban areas, violent crime is a continuing problem in Jersey City, which with 250,000 residents is the second-largest municipality in New Jersey. Although total violent crime has declined, in 2013 there were 20 murders, up from just 12 the year before, according to New Jersey State Police records.Murphy said they were gratified by the Police Department’s enthusiastic response. “From the first time Laurie and I approached them about it, they’ve been on board.” The 14 locations identified by the police included the sites of murders and violent assaults.Worshipers gathering at the corner of Clinton St. and Bergen Ave. Photo: Nina NicholsonThe participants began at 9:30 a.m. on the corner of Clinton Street and Bergen Avenue. Volunteers took turns leading the procession carrying a wooden cross constructed for the event by Grace Van Vorst parishioner Donald Gallagher, using wood he’d saved from Grace Van Vorst’s previous organ.Casper Ewig of St. Paul’s in Bergen carries the cross as Bishop Mark Beckwith and others follow. Photo: Nina NicholsonAt each of the 14 sites the procession stopped to hear the story of the station in the traditional liturgy, followed by a brief description of the violent incident that took place there. A participant hammered a nail into the cross, the people joined in reading responsively a prayer or poem and Bishop Beckwith led the group in a concluding prayer.At each station, a worshiper hammered a nail into the cross. Photo: Nina NicholsonAlthough brief, the descriptions of the violence that had taken place at each location were sobering. “In this place,” proclaimed the reader at the third station,” a beloved child of God was found shot and bleeding from the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.” At the fourth station, “two beloved children of God were stabbed during a domestic dispute. One of the victims later died from her injuries.” At the 13th station, “a beloved child of God was shot in the chest after being robbed. He later died of his injuries.”Each time, before the procession moved on, Jane Jackson of Grace Van Vorst placed a red rose on the spot.“I abhor violence in the world,” said Jackson, “and this felt like a way to witness for peace. To do it with other people of like mind felt really good.”Jane Jackson of Grace Van Vorst places a rose at the first station.

Worshipers handed out cards with a prayer for the end of violence in Jersey City.A resident watches the procession pass his apartment building, led by Assemblyman Charles Mainor carrying the cross.

Photo: Nina NicholsonThe prayerful observance moved not only participants and residents, but the journalists and police officers who accompanied them as well.Jersey Journal photographer Reena Rose Sibayan, who documented the procession from beginning to end, commented, “This is very different from other Stations of the Cross we’ve covered,” noting that it was the first that was more than just the traditional liturgy. She said she was also struck by the fact that the victims were “so many young people, so close together.”Sidney King and Carol Harrison-Arnold, Wardens of Church of the Incarnation, read at one of the stations while behind them Jersey Journal photographer Reena Rose Sibayan takes photos. Photo: Nina NicholsonCaptain Michael Kelly of the Jersey City police coordinated the officers who accompanied the procession. At the conclusion, he said, “This was really, truly inspirational. I personally responded to many of these scenes, and I remember the faces of the kids” who were injured or killed. During the Stations of the Cross, he said. “Their faces came back to me. It brought me to goose bumps, and sometimes to tears.”Police Community Relations Officer Doris Johnson praised the event for bringing residents together. “We’ve got to make sure the community comes together – then we can make things better for everyone,” she said, adding: “I can’t wait until next year!”Bishop Mark Beckwith addresses the group at the end of the procession, while the Rev. Thomas Murphy of St. Paul’s in Bergen looks on. Photo: Nina Nicholson“This was a very positive witness,” said Beckwith. “We connected the stories in the street and the stories from the Gospel.

Powerful South African winger set to become second Test player in family, but for another country

first_imgWednesday Oct 21, 2020 Powerful South African winger set to become second Test player in family, but for another country South African born winger Duhan van der Merwe will make his Scotland debut against Georgia on Friday night as he looks forward to an extended Test career.ADVERTISEMENTVan der Merwe, who was named the PRO14 Players’ Player of the season, has dominated PRO14 ranks with his pace and power and will be hoping to turn the same form into points on the international stage.The brother of Springbok hooker Akker (see video lower down on the page), Van der Merwe has dominated the stats pages in the PRO14 tournament for quite a while.Just last season there was no doubt as to the impact he had with the ball for his club Edinburgh and it was not to go unnoticed by the Scottish selectors.STATSThe 25-year-old has impressed all season topping out the Opta stats charts for Defenders Beaten (76), Metres Made (906) and Clean Breaks (31) while scoring seven tries and setting up two.Additionally, Van der Merwe’s average of 5.6 Defenders Beaten per game set a new record for the Guinness PRO14 as he broke his own existing record of 5.3 that he set in 2017/18.ADVERTISEMENTVan der Merwe, who was named after Irish folk musician Johnny Duhan after the family spent time in Ireland, spent his junior rugby at the Blue Bulls before signing for Montpellier and spending a season there.But the move to Edinburgh was where he excelled, as he scored 31 tries now in 58 appearances and is a firm favourite in the Scottish capital.And he has been someone who coach Gregor Townsend has been watching for a number of years. Townsend made it clear months ago that when Van der Merwe qualified he would be included in the Scottish side.ADVERTISEMENT“He is an excellent player,” said Townsend. “He has shown this season a different level of play as well. His work off the ball has been excellent and his defence has been up there as well. He is quick, he’s strong, he makes a lot of line breaks and tackle breaks and he is a young player who will get better the more he plays.“It is a position where we have competition. Sean Maitland, Blair Kinghorn did very well for us this year, Darcy Graham missed out due to injury, and we’ve also got Kyle Steyn, Ratu Tagive and Byron McGuigan.“With Tommy Seymour retiring from international rugby, Duhan can certainly be in the mix for our next international.”On Friday night he becomes the second international in the Van der Merwe household and will be looking to find the tryline as easily as he does for Edinburgh.South Africans Ollie Kebbel and Cornell du Preez are also on the Scotland bench.SCOTLAND TEAM TO PLAY GEORGIA – Friday 23 October (kick-off 7:30pm)15.

Sector pays tribute to Prince Philip

first_img“This would increase the amount of tax relief that could be claimed at a time when charities are struggling having suffered a year when a number of fundraising events were cancelled.” Tagged with: patron Royal Family HRH The Duke of Edinburgh laying a wreath on the Armed Forces Memorial at the Arboretum during a visit in 2009 Prince Philip of course set up the Duke of Edinburgh Award in 1956. Almost 1.3 million young people take part in the scheme each year, and it is now in more than 130 countries and territories worldwide. “Our thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time.” Prince Philip was the first President of World Wildlife Fund – UK (WWF) from its formation in 1961 to 1982, and International President of WWF (later the World Wide Fund for Nature) from 1981 to 1996, and then President Emeritus of WWF until his death. The charity has set up the WWF President’s Fund for Nature to honour his conservation legacy and long-lasting commitment to WWF. Donations will support essential wildlife conservation and biodiversity around the world and will also include special bursaries for young environmentalists. “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh, who has been a long standing royal patron of Plan International UK. Patron too of the British Heart Foundation for almost 60 years, this charity too has set up a tribute page in his honour and the Royal Family has asked the public to consider donating to it in his memory. Mark Hart, a partner at the firm said:  884 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “He was a respected and much loved supporter of the Charities Aid Foundation as well as hundreds of other charities and organisations.  His irreplaceable and invaluable contribution to CAF and our nation will be sorely missed.” The Royal Commonwealth Society has also expressed its deepest sympathy and condolences to its Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, and Members of the Royal Family on the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh.Chair of the Royal Commonwealth Society, Dr Linda Yueh, said: The Duke of Edinburgh had also been Patron of the Charities Aid Foundation since 1974. It too paid tribute, saying: “Over the course of more than six decades, The Duke steadfastly supported The Queen in her role as Head of the Commonwealth. Prince Philip was also a Life Member of The National Memorial Arboretum, part of the Royal British Legion. His first visit to the Arboretum was in July 2002, shortly after its opening, in the company of Her Majesty The Queen, as part of her Golden Jubilee tour and his last in November 2016 when he was present for the dedication of the Guinea Pig Club Memorial, and as the club’s President he unveiled the memorial. During that visit, he was given a tour of the Arboretum’s Remembrance Centre that opened two weeks prior. Ruth Marvel, CEO of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award said: The charity is asking anyone who’s been involved across the decades – from current participants and older alumni to the people who help deliver the DofE across the UK every year – to go to DofE.org and share their experiences in celebration of The Duke’s legacy. In addition, he was Patron of Capability Scotland, and Chair of its Board of Trustees, Professor Sandy Cameron CBE and Chief Executive Brian Logan issued the following statement: “We were all deeply saddened to learn of the death of our patron, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. He has been our patron for many years and we were always grateful for his support and visits to our services in the past. On behalf of our trustees, staff, customers and their families, our sincere condolences go to Her Majesty The Queen and the whole Royal Family.” Main image: HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in Heroes’ Square on his last visit to the National Memorial Arboretum in 2016  Sector pays tribute to Prince Philip Dr Charmaine Griffiths, BHF Chief Executive, said: The Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral takes place tomorrow, Saturday 17 April. Over the course of his life, Prince Philip was associated with 992 organisations, either as President, Patron, Honorary Member or in another capacity. Here are a few of their responses, including a number of funds set up in his memory. Rose Caldwell, CEO of Plan International UK said:  “Prince Philip offered steadfast support to the BHF for nearly 60 years and was a remarkable advocate for the power of research to save and improve lives from heart and circulatory diseases. The Arboretum has been among those flying the Union Jack at half-mast during the eight-day period of mourning. Black armbands have also been made available to be worn by staff. “Prince Philip’s role as our patron was one aspect of a life characterised by support for good causes and devotion to public service. His contribution will forever be remembered.” “The Duke was a lifelong advocate for young people, believing in each individual’s potential and creating in the DofE what he saw as a ‘do-it-yourself growing up kit’. We’re honoured to continue HRH’s work, to ensure that all young people – especially those from marginalised groups – can benefit from the better educational outcomes, employment prospects, community ties and better mental health that are associated with doing DofE.” The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is asking for the help of the 6.7 million people across the UK who have done their DofE in creating the first-ever nationwide collection of ‘DofE memories’ in tribute to HRH Prince Philip and to inspire even more young people to take part. “His establishment of The Duke of Edinburgh Award, which now operates in over 40 Commonwealth countries, and his founding of the Commonwealth Study Conferences and Emerging Leaders’ Dialogues, will leave a lasting and powerful legacy in the Commonwealth.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. “Over the years, His Royal Highness has been incredibly supportive of the work we do with young people both here in the UK and across the world. As a global children’s charity striving to give every child the same chance in life, his support has been hugely appreciated. Other charities he was Patron of included the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, where he had been Patron since 1973, having previously been President of the Trust for eight years. The charity is inviting people to make a donation in his memory, and Plan International UK. “The Government should move away from the current system whereby donors opt into Gift Aid to one where they opt out if they are not a UK tax payer. This should be coupled with a temporary increase in the value of gift aid for a year to 25% of the donation so that every £1 given would be worth £1.33. This would be a fitting tribute to the work that the Duke of Edinburgh did to promote the concept of Gift Aid.” Prince Philip is also credited with playing a role in the creation of Gift Aid with his bringing together of officials in the 1980s as part of his work with CAF said to have eventually led to the scheme. Tax and advisory firm Blick Rothenberg has suggested that a temporary increase in the value of Gift Aid, as well as a change to the rules would be a fitting tribute. “The Duke’s timeless vision for young people has never been more relevant or needed. The DofE has played a crucial role in supporting young people to survive and thrive despite the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, and we will continue to build on his legacy.

first_img DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021– The “Growth Opportunities of IIoT in Small and Medium Scale Enterprises” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things), came into reality during the advent of Industry 4.0. The technology provided immense data communications and connectivity between all devices. The fourth industrial revolution changed the whole manufacturing spectrum. The technology helped manufacturers to tremendously increase their efficiency and productivity.
