Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Edmond, Oklahoma] Mientras el sol comenzaba a ponerse el 12 de julio en Oklahoma City, los jóvenes episcopales se reunieron por diócesis y desfilaron en procesión desde la catedral de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Cathedral] a lo largo de cuatro cuadras de la Avenida Robinson Norte hasta el Monumento Conmemorativo Nacional de Oklahoma City para una vigilia con velas.La vigilia tuvo lugar luego de una visita al museo del monumento, que traza el cronograma que empieza treinta minutos antes del 19 de abril de 1995, cuando una bomba mató a 168 personas e hirió a otras 680, hasta la ejecución de Timothy McVeigh en 2001.“De la manera en que está montada, uno se mueve a través del tiempo y es una cosa pasmosa”, dijo Kiera Campbell, de 16 años, miembro del comité de planificación del Evento de la Juventud Episcopal 2017 de la Diócesis de Olympia. “Es sorprendente ver cómo una ciudad aunó esfuerzos y como [los habitantes de] una ciudad pudieron encontrar la paz entre sí”.Mil trescientos jóvenes de 90 de las 109 diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal asistieron al 13er. Evento de la Juventud Episcopal que tuvo lugar del 10 al 14 de julio en la Universidad de Oklahoma Central en Edmond, a 20 minutos en auto del centro de Oklahoma City. Las Bienaventuranzas, particularmente Mateo 5:9 “Bienaventurados los pacificadores porque ellos serán llamados hijos de Dios”, inspiraron el tema del EYE 17, “Camino hacia la Paz”. (Estuvieron ausentes algunos jóvenes de la IX Provincia, las diócesis de América Latina y el Caribe, a quienes les denegaron visas para entrar en Estados Unidos).Adolescentes que asistieron al Evento de la Juventud Episcopal 2017 en Edmond, Oklahoma, visitaron el 12 de julio el Monumento Conmemorativo y Museo Nacional de Oklahoma City. Aquí se ve a un grupo en la Galería de Honor, donde cuelgan de los muros las fotos de las 168 personas [que murieron en el atentado terrorista], 19 niños entre ellos. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.La noche antes de la visita al museo y de la vigilia, los supervivientes del atentado terrorista compartieron sus experiencias personales con los jóvenes en una sesión plenaria en el campus. Durante la vigilia con velas, los jóvenes se sentaron sobre la hierba frente a las 168 sillas vacías —19 más pequeñas para los niños— que representan a cada una de las víctimas. Un estanque espejo se tiende entre dos pilares que marcan las 9:01 y las 9:03, aislando el minuto, 9:02 A.M. en que el camión bomba explotó y destruyó el edificio federal Alfred P. Murrah.Esa fue la historia, pero más importante aun es la respuesta humana y su perdurable impacto que el obispo de Oklahoma Ed Konieczny quería que los jóvenes experimentaran. El atentado terrorista, dijo él, aglutinó a la gente de Oklahoma en un espíritu de unidad, en lo que se convirtió en la llamada “Norma de Oklahoma,” que perdura hasta hoy.“Si uno viene a Oklahoma y se convierte en oklahomense [el relato] llega a ser parte de quien eres, porque de muchas maneras fue un gigantesco punto de inflexión, no sólo para Oklahoma City, sino para el estado”, dijo Konieczny, que era sacerdote en Texas en el momento del atentado. “Fue un hecho infortunado, pero energizó y sacó a relucir todo lo bueno de la gente de Oklahoma City y de Oklahoma…y eso no se detuvo”.Fotos de las víctimas que se exhiben en la Galería de Honor, lo último que se muestra en el Monumento Conmemorativo y Museo Nacional de Oklahoma City. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Aunque los jóvenes no habían nacido aún en 1995 —sus edades oscilan entre los 13 y los 18 años— viven en un mundo cada vez más violento. Por esa razón, Konieczny quería coauspiciar el EYE17 en su diócesis y compartir la historia de Oklahoma City como un ejemplo de paz y resistencia.“El evento es relevante porque les ayuda a ver todas las otras cosas que ocurren en nuestro mundo y en nuestra sociedad y los otros incidentes de violencia que tienen lugar, Columbine o Virginia Tech o Florida. Parece como si todos los días hubiera algo más, algo grande, algo pequeño, “, afirmó él. “Espero que el relato sea que tenemos que hacer algo al respecto. Y ellos tienen la capacidad de hacer eso… El mensaje de esto no va a ser la bomba. El mensaje de esto es la vida, y que vamos a poner nuestra fe donde nuestra fe debe estar, y vamos a levantarnos en pro de la justicia y a decir no, no vamos a vivir de esta manera, vamos a hacer algo diferente”.Responder a la violencia y el odio con amor está contenido en el mensaje del Camino hacia la Paz.“La realidad es que el odio no funciona y que la violencia no funciona. Los seres humanos fueron hechos por amor, porque creo que Dios es amor, y fuimos creados para amar y la vida sólo funciona cuando amamos. Y este monumento memorial es un doloroso recordatorio de que el odio hiere y agrede, y que no fuimos hechos para eso”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry en el sitio del monumento conmemorativo. “Hemos sido puestos sobre la tierra para encontrar un camino mejor. Para encontrar la vida y el amor para todo el mundo, y en consecuencia venir a este monumento de recordación y estar aquí en este día es una oportunidad de ser nuevamente consagrados y dedicados a crear un mundo donde rija el amor”.Hubo alguna diversión en el EYE17. Aquí, el Rdo. Tim Schenck, a la izquierda, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista en Hingham, Massachusetts, y el Rdo. Scott Gunn, director ejecutivo del Movimiento Adelante, aparecen sentados mientras Sierra Palmer, de la Diócesis de Kansas deposita un voto por uno de los dos santos. Santa Quiteria derrotó a San Longino, 72 a 28 por ciento, y será incluida en la Locura de Cuaresma 2018. El resto de los santos que aparezcan en la selección del próximo año se anunciará en noviembre. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Hace un año, los 16 miembros del comité de planificación de la juventud del EYE17 visitaron Oklahoma City y el museo y monumento conmemorativo para tener una impresión de lo que experimentarían sus compañeros. Inmediatamente, les resultó obvio que la historia de Oklahoma City es una que “todo el mundo debe oír”, dijo Andrés González Bonilla, de 16 años, de la Diócesis de Arizona y quien sirvió en el equipo de planificación de liturgia y música. La respuesta de la ciudad a un acto de terrorismo nacional es “una historia trágica, pero hermosa y conmovedora”.“El equipo de planificación de la misión del EYE comenzó a concebir lo que podría ser este evento hace más de 18 meses. Basaron el evento en el evangelio de Mateo y en las Bienaventuranzas”, dijo Bronwyn Clark Skov, directora episcopal de formación, jóvenes y jóvenes adultos, que supervisa nuestro ministerio. “Estamos cautivados con todo el programa, pero también, debido a lo que ha estado sucediendo en el mundo, en realidad estamos a tono con “bienaventurados los pacificadores’”.El evento trienal de la juventud, un mandato de la Convención General, atrajo en total a 1.400 personas, entre ellas a 35 obispos, así como acompañantes, capellanes, médicos y otros voluntarios. Cada predicador, orador, expositor y sesión práctica presentó el tema de una u otra manera.El obispo primado Michael Curry predicó y presidió la eucaristía de apertura del EYE17. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Curry predicó durante la eucaristía de apertura del 11 de julio y más tarde ese día ofreció dos talleres consecutivos sobre el ¨Movimiento de Jesús” seguidos por un período de preguntas y respuestas. Otros oradores, entre ellos la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, obispos, miembros del personal denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal, representantes de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, Forma, Cuerpo Episcopal de Servicios y otros, ofrecieron talleres que iban desde la defensa social hasta la comunicación no violenta en un mundo violento, pasando por vivir en comunidades orientadas como caminos hacia la paz.“Creo que el ‘camino hacia la paz’ se ha expresado de maneras muy diferentes durante este evento, y mi esperanza es que haya sido lo bastante contagiosa para que cuando todos los jóvenes regresen a sus casas luego de este evento comiencen a contar el relato de lo experimentado aquí y que lo que han aprendido aquí los capacite para actuar realmente por su propio bien y derecho y [siguiendo] la inclinación divina a hacer algo”, dijo Skov.Durante una conferencia de prensa el 11 de julio, Trevor Mahan, de la Diócesis de Kansas y miembro del comité de planificación, dijo que los jóvenes habían concebido deliberadamente el evento para presentarle los jóvenes al liderazgo de la Iglesia y a la Iglesia Episcopal en su ámbito denominacional, ofreciendo medios ulteriores de participación en todos los niveles.Campbell, colega del equipo de planificación de Mahan, de la Diócesis de Olympia, se mostró de acuerdo.“Queremos que las personas puedan volver a casa y conectarse con otras organizaciones episcopales”, dijo ella, y sacar a relucir el mensaje del Camino de la Paz para alentar a otros jóvenes a participar.Konieczny ve una auténtica esperanza en los jóvenes de hoy, que son mucho más inclusivos que las generaciones anteriores. La composición del EYE17, el grupo más diverso de todos, da fe de eso.“Como dije en mi homilía en la vigilia, los jóvenes de hoy pueden marcar una verdadera diferencia en el mundo”, afirmó.“Están en esa edad ahora en que sientan las bases de la manera en que su generación va a convivir, y uno ya puede ver el nivel de aceptación, inclusión y disposición a vivir en diversidad y con reconocimiento mutuo. Y eso no siempre ha sido el caso de las generaciones que nos han antecedido; esto somos nosotros y eso son ellos, y sencillamente salvemos la distancia” dijo Konieczny.Los planes para el EYE20 ya están en marcha y, con la ayuda de una subvención del Fondo Constable, la Iglesia Episcopal celebrará el evento en América Latina.-Lynette Wilson es jefa de redacción de Episcopal News Service.

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You’ve been having nightmares about your child’s report cards from last year, the homework assignments covered in red pen, the awkward parent/teacher conferences and the stressful study sessions that never did any good. You’ve spent more than a few sleepless evenings trying to figure out how to make this year easier than the last, for both you and your child.Start this school year differently and call in the pros: Tutors. If you get a jump on it now, and you’ll give your kid a jump start on the school year.Recognize the NeedMary and Craig Newton know firsthand the benefits of using tutors; they’ve engaged several over the course of their children’s academic careers. The first time was for their child, Eliza, an elementary school student who typically earned As and Bs on report cards. It wasn’t until Eliza’s class was given a math workbook to complete during the summer that her parents began to suspect a problem. Their normally cooperative child cried over the assignment, dug in her heels and called it “stupid.” She typically enjoyed math and never complained about homework, so her distress seemed strange. At the suggestion of her new third grade teacher, who suspected there was a bigger issue, Eliza was tested by an education specialist. The tests determined that Eliza didn’t have a math problem, she had a reading problem. The summer math book was overwhelming because it was filled with word problems. So the Newtons hired a reading tutor and today Eliza is a successful college student who reads for pleasure.Eliza’s story has a happy ending because the Newtons realized that there was a problem and worked to fix it before it got worse. But not every family is so lucky when it comes to noticing that a child is having trouble in school. Be on the lookout for warning signs, which can include:Struggling with subjects that hadn’t been a problem beforeNegative attitude toward certain subjects, especially calling his or herself stupid, or the subject itself stupidBehavioral outbursts that may or may not appear related to schoolwork/studyingYou or your child feel like giving upYour usually motivated child has lost motivation and interestOpen the Books During the SummerEliza wasn’t the only Newton family member to get extra help along the way. When her sister, Julia, spent her freshman year of high school struggling through algebra I, the Newtons turned to a high school math teacher to work with her throughout the summer and into the school year. Although Julia didn’t relish the idea of spending her summer days with a teacher, spending time with one she liked made a difference. The tutor showed Julia ways to approach the problems and she sailed through algebra II the next year.Ben Shifrin, the head of Jemicy School in Owings Mills, says that summer break is a good time for all students to reinforce what they’ve learned throughout the school year. He believes that the “use it or lose it” philosophy applies to the brain. “If kids do not use the skills they’ve learned during the school year in the summer, they will lose one to two months of progress by September,” he says.Shifrin, who specializes in working with students with dyslexia and language-based learning differences, has found that summer is the perfect time to build skills and motivate students, but enlisting a tutor at anytime of year is a good strategy for grade improvement. “If your child is struggling with the basics of a particular subject area such as math, vocabulary or writing, a tutor can help build the skills they will need as they move to higher grade levels,” he says.Choose the Best Tutor for Your ChildMary Newton has learned two important lessons from her children’s experience: be open to the possibility your child may need extra help and when you do hire a tutor, make sure it’s a good fit.“If the kids don’t gel with their tutor, it’s a waste of time and money,” says Newton.Keep in mind that what works for one family or child is not always the best solution for another. When looking at tutoring options, remember that each child’s needs are different and those needs change with age. Among the many options for support during the summer and the school year are the following:Summer School/Summer Tutors: Summer school is a great option for getting your child back up to speed. “Summer school usually has a different environment than the regular school year,” says Shirfin. “Classes are smaller and more relaxed, and students usually receive more attention from their teachers.” Present the idea extra summer help to your child in an optimistic light, with positive comments about the material or the teacher. Keep kids motivated by balancing the academic work with fun activities and creating games to help with studying. A good tutor-student relationship established during the summer or beginning of the school year can carry over into the fall when learning becomes more intense and the focus becomes earning good grades.Summer Learning Programs: Libraries have always been a good, free resource for promoting summer reading, with reading clubs geared to a variety of age groups. But the opportunities don’t stop there. Academic camps at local schools and universities are just as popular. From space science to zoology, and a host of subjects in between, you’ll easily find a summer program to meet just about any interest. The advantage of these non-curriculum-based programs is that kids experience the fun of learning through exploration and discovery of a specific subject area. Check out local parenting magazines, local schools and colleges, zoos, aquariums and parks and recreation departments for summer learning programs in your area.Teachers: Certified teachers are a good option for children working to improve their learning skills. Teachers’ certification and training qualifies them to give the extra help some children need before the school year starts up again. A teacher, especially one from your child’s school, will be familiar with the previous year’s curriculum and know what lies ahead. He or she can help get your child up to speed and ready to handle new material. Make sure your child and the tutor have a good rapport and that the tutor is willing to advocate for your child. After working one-on-one with your child, the tutor will quickly pick up on his or her needs and the solutions that will prove beneficial. If the child could benefit from accommodations, such as un-timed testing or the use of a computer to take notes, the tutor should be willing to speak to the school on behalf of your child to make sure these needs are met.College Students: Engaging a college student is often a less expensive option, but usually best suited to tutoring in specific subject areas such as biology, physics or language. College students are a great option for older students who struggle with advanced curriculum or who are preparing for college admission tests such as the SAT or ACT. Locating an effective and reliable college student tutor is often done by word to mouth, so keep your ears open. You can contact a specific department at your local college or university for tutor recommendations or find one through Care.com’s College Caregivers program. Vet tutors properly to be sure they’re truly knowledgeable in the subject matter. Ask for a recommendation from a professor, as well as from another family who has used the tutor. Meet with those who seem to be a good fit. It is not only essential for your child’s tutor to be proficient in the subject material and be able to explain it, but also he or she must be able to relate to your child. A patient, engaging tutor can make all the difference in the world.Tutoring Centers: Most cities offer tutoring centers affiliated with a regional or nationwide network. They are another good option for honing specific skills and usually offer testing to measure progress. Before committing to using a center though, make sure your child’s tutor is certified and that he/she relates well to your child. At these learning centers, families benefit from the fact that background checks have already been done. Many facilities also offer fun, academic summer camps to help prevent learning loss during the break. Summer vacation is an ideal time for older students to prepare for high school and college admissions tests, and many learning centers offer this service year-round either one-on-one or in a small group setting. These short, one- or two-month courses may also be offered at a school or other off-site location, such as a hotel meeting room. In addition to reviewing skills and teaching strategies for taking the test, throughout the course they administer a version of standardized tests to get students used to taking it.Online Programs: Like most options, online tutoring works well for some students, but not for others. Older students who are independent learners can benefit from learning online, but face-to-face is a better option for students who are dreamers. For students who want to brush up on skills during off time, but hate the idea of going to school or using a tutor, the computer can be an effective tool for practicing skills.Before- and After-School Tutors/Programs: Once the school year has started up again, the extended day programs offered at many schools are a good way to combine homework and socializing. There may be options before and after school, so you may easily find something that fits your child’s schedule. Here, kids have access to educators, who can take the time to walk them through problems and help them understand tricky concepts. If your child’s needs go beyond basic homework help, make sure there is a quiet place where your child and the tutor can work.

The income is raised from its long running Christmas Santa Bear appeal as well as flag days.The information is contained in an interim administrator’s report quoted in the Irish Times.“For obvious reasons the CRC has experienced a sharp reduction in the funds being raised from its fundraising activities and, in 2014, staff previously assigned to fundraising were redeployed to other roles within the CRC,” the administrator reports.After costs and overheads were taken into account, the decline in fundraising in 2013 resulted in a net loss of €13,406 from such activities that year. The CRC had made €516,193 in such fundraising income in 2011 and €418,000 in 2010.On the other hand, major donations to CRC remained level at around €100,000. The administrator also commented in the report that fundraising income should be applied to charity services, a reference to CRC’s previous practice of using fundraising income to top up salaries of senior executives.

Wanga said, “Since the beginning of time, Black women have been changing lives, changing communities, and changing the world – and most often have not been recognized for it. While we may still be fighting for the C-Suite in Corporate America, we have held practically every seat in the C-Suite of our lives – Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Communications Officer, Chief Wellness Officer, Chief Strategy Officer and the list goes on. It is what we do, and for the past 50 years, the evolution of Black women’s history — and thus, the evolution of the Black woman – has been captured and curated in one place and one place only – ESSENCE. I could not be more excited for the opportunity to serve this cornerstone of Black culture into its next phase of growth, innovation and impact alongside this incredible team of accomplished women. ESSENCE has at our disposal some of the most recognized, trusted and treasured assets through which to engage Black women and our communities in service to not just surviving, but thriving, and we are grateful for our broader teams across the organization who demonstrate commitment every day to ensuring that we are building our capabilities in service to that purpose. Moving forward, we will be bringing this to life through a three-pillar focus – Culture, Equity and Celebration—and are driving each of those through a prioritized set of goals that include engaging the global Black diaspora, leveraging an inclusive and multigenerational approach, optimizing our 360-integrated capability including virtual and live agility, capitalizing on our first-party data and research to uncover key insights and more.” Smith-Wilson added, “When ESSENCE was founded 50 years ago, it had a very clear mandate – to show, empower and celebrate the many facets of Black women and to do so understanding the power of media images and the importance of controlling our own narrative. Today, in a season where almost everyone professes to care about the needs of Black women and particularly in this time of national and global reckoning on the systemic injustices that we face as Black women and as a Black community, this mandate is ever-more clear and critical as we put an even deeper stake in the ground that our culture is not a trend or a marketing opportunity. Today, more than 31 million Black women globally call ESSENCE home. Home is the place where we lay our heads, our hearts, our insecurities, our fears, our aspirations, and our dreams. It is where we return to be renewed and restored. That is ESSENCE – equipping her with what she needs to lead in all areas of her life. Black women are speaking. Black women are leading. Black women are continuing to change the world as we know it. We always have, and we always will.” * PHOTO LINK: Headshots can be found here. ABOUT ESSENCE COMMUNICATIONS, INC.
