Earlier conversations about the establishment of an Indigenous province had focussed more on technical questions of how a fifth province that included urban and rural Indigenous communities across the country might be established.“Instead of talking about governance and structures, what is being spoken about is ministry. The focus is ministry,” he said.In response to the Indigenous ministries presentation, newly-elected Prolocutor Cynthia Haines-Turner brought a motion to the floor asking General Synod to affirm a statement calling on synod to “receive with joy” the mission statement for an Indigenous Anglican Spiritual Ministry, as well as the appointment of the Primate’s Council of Elders and Youth and the report of the Primate’s Commission on the Doctrine of Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice that had taken place earlier in the day.

Babang Hendarso Danury to ensure that the police conduct an exhaustive and impartial investigation into the death of Muhammad Syaifullah, the Borneo bureau chief of the leading national daily Kompas, and do not prematurely rule out the possibility that he was murdered in connection with his work.Syaifullah was found dead today in his home in Balikpapan, on the island of Borneo. The cause of death is not yet known. The police said that his body was found in front of a TV set, that there was froth around his mouth and that the muscles of his face were contracted.“Nothing should be ruled out in advance by those carrying out the autopsy and the investigation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The sensitive stories on which Syaifullah was working could have angered local companies. Even if there are no grounds for saying this with certainty, it is essential that no hypothesis neglected.”Syaifullah’s body was found by worried colleagues who went to his home this morning because his family, who live in another city, had not heard from him since 24 July.After learning about the condition of the body, several local journalists speculated that he could have been poisoned. But the police said he could have died as result of a heart attack, hypertension or diabetes. The autopsy is still under way.Syaifullah was outspoken in his criticism of deforestation and environmental destruction in Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo.

She wanted to be dressed just like Cinderella.To Foz Williams, his three-year-old daughter is a little princess any day of the week.Foz and Evelyn were among the dads and daughters who participated in “Cover Me Daddy,” a “Daughters Lives Matter” event at the Troy Recreation Center Saturday.

Spending quality time together is a good way to strengthen those relationships.Troy Mayor Jason A. Reeves said the emphasis that is placed on families couldn’t be downplayed.“Many of the issues that we face today could be solved in the family unit,” he said. “Many answers for today’s problems could be found in their parent/child relationships. I applaud each dad who took the time to share this time with his daughter. As dads, what you are doing today is extremely important.”Reeves said parenting should not be left up to schools, churches, and government organizations.“They can’t do it all and these are not the places to do it all,” he said. “Today was a great day for dads and their daughters. I thank all of those who made it possible.”Tamara Williams, who spearheaded the event, said Daughters Lives Matter is a nationwide campaign to increase the number of healthy father and daughter relationships as it relates to three key principles: Education Attainment, Victimization Prevention and Poverty Avoidance.“Cover Me Daddy was our theme for 2018,” Williams said. “We may have a different theme next year and we want people to remember the campaign.  We thank everyone who had a part in the success of our dads and daughters day, especially the dads who took the time to make it special for their daughters.” Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration 123PrevNextStartStop Print Articlecenter_img Book Nook to reopen “There is no true replacement for an active father,” Hicks said. “What you are doing today is wonderful.
