Military chaplains: To serve those who serve

Bill Alford of Pennsylvania, a chaplain for the Civil Air Patrol (a civilian auxiliary of the Air Force), shares information about the office of federal ministries with the Rev. Earl Gibson of the Diocese of Los Angeles. Photo/Janet Kawamoto[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] They are members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Day after day they face the challenges of an activity that demands 100% of sacrifice and then some, but that doesn’t diminish their spiritual needs. To serve those who serve is the mission of the Episcopal Office of Armed Services and Federal Ministries, which has maintained a presence in the exhibit hall at General Convention.Rev. Dr. Wollom “Wally” Jensen from the Office of Armed Services explains that their work is not limited to military personnel on active duty. “We are not limited to the Episcopal community. We also provide pastoral care to other denominations and faiths as well as atheists and free thinkers.”Ten years of armed conflict in different fronts, prolonged deployments and tours of duty take a tremendous toll on individuals and their families, explains Jensen. “We want to take care of the needs of veterans, many of whom go straight from active duty to homelessness,” he said, adding that the problem is particularly severe among women.In addition, the Office of Armed Services and Federal ministries is aggressively trying to provide for the needs of Latinos in the armed forces. “We want to attract Latino priest with the calling to join this ministry,” adds Jensen.In an interview with the Webradio Service of the Latino/Hispanic Ministry of the Episcopal Church, Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori spoke on the issue, one that touches her on a personal level. “… I believe that congregations should be more involved with the lives of families of those serving in the armed forces. I have a daughter who is a pilot in the Air Force. I know that chaplains and others have a profound interest in family lives and I think that congregations should educate themselves on this issue.”The Office of Armed Services and Federal Ministries also serve inmates incarcerated in federal prisons. This is a group that often times is “off the radar” for society, but cannot be ignored, Jensen says. “It is a vocation and a challenge — the reward is the service itself.”— Cesar Cardoza is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

Yellow Vests movement battles repression in France

first_imgFor the 14th consecutive Saturday, tens of thousands of Yellow Vests marched throughout France on Feb. 16. The cops gave the number of marchers as 41,500, while the Yellow Vest movement claimed the figure was 104,070.While the major focus of media attention was on Paris, there were also significant marches in Rouen, Lyons and Bordeaux, where the main slogan was “Death to the rich.” The cops broke up the march in Bordeaux with water cannons and tear gas grenades. (Le Monde, Feb. 16)The French government, under highly unpopular President Emmanuel Macron — whose approval index has dipped as low as 24 percent — has attacked the Yellow Vests from three directions: physical, legal and political.Over 2,000 people have been seriously injured by French cops during Yellow Vest protests, most of them by “flash balls,” hard rubber projectiles copiously fired by the cops, or by GLI-F4 grenades, which combine a loud bang (165 decibels), tear gas and a hard blast. From pictures on Google and Flickr, most of the injuries have been to eyes and limbs.The intensity of feeling by Yellow Vest protesters is such that even after they have been severely injured, they keep on protesting.Legal and political reprisalsIn legal reprisals, Éric Drouet, a truck driver and prominent member of the Yellow Vests, was recently convicted of organizing two demonstrations in January without “prior notification.” Under the state of emergency in force in France because of the threat of “terrorist attacks,” this charge carries major penalties. Drouet has thus far received only a month in prison, perhaps because of the ferocity of the protests. He has another trial set for June. (Le Huffington Post, Feb. 17)Christophe Dettinger, an ex-champion boxer, was arrested when he kicked a cop during a demonstration in January and then punched another one, over his shield and through his face mask, down and out. Dettinger was sentenced to a year of prison, though he will be able to work during the day and be locked up at night.  Government political pressure has come down on the Yellow Vests. Minister of the Interior Christophe Castaner has regularly denounced the movement in Parliament. On Feb. 14 he announced he was “watching” Christophe Chalençon, a Yellow Vest member, on the far-fetched charge that he was planning a coup and organizing a paramilitary band.On Feb. 16, a well-known right-wing member of the French Academy, Alain Finkielkraut, got out of a Paris cab when it was stopped by the Yellow Vest march. Protesters recognized him and began calling him a “dirty Zionist.”  Some cops who escorted him out of the crowd said they heard an anti-Semitic epithet, which, if uttered in a public place in France “with the intent to injure or defame someone,” carries a penalty of 12 years in prison and a 45,000 euro fine. However, Finkielkraut did not file a complaint. Nevertheless, the whole bourgeois political establishment piled on, treating the incident as being essentially anti-Semitic. Those feigning outrage included Emmanuel Macron, his Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, Marine Le Pen, head of the Front National — whose roots are anti-Semitic and neo-Fascist — and every other right-wing party. It was a clear case of the French establishment working as hard as they could to take down the Yellow Vests.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NFU upset with Rail Troubles

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter NFU upset with Rail Troubles By Andy Eubank – Sep 3, 2014 National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson called the ongoing rail delays in the upper Midwest ‘staggering’ and ‘unacceptable” this week.  Johnson urged the federal government to press what he called the local railway monopoly for better results in a recent editorial. He says farm families are already feeling the pinch in areas such as North Dakota and if action doesn’t happen soon farmers could see more damage.  He notes that in North Dakota, where shipping by rail is the only option for many, four different grain elevators indicate that their oldest orders are from early March and orders are up to 2,000 cars behind. Johnson stated that the ethanol industry has also been frozen out of rail shipping.  He stated “failure to bring ethanol to market will hurt consumers because of higher gasoline prices and will work against our efforts to offset imports of foreign oil.”  The ethanol industry ships up to 61 percent of ethanol via rail.  Johnson called on the federal Surface Transportation Board to take action.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NFU upset with Rail Troubles Previous articleIndiana Department of Ag Names Deputy DirectorNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubanklast_img read more

More Questions than Answers about 2nd Beef Checkoff

first_img By Andy Eubank – Nov 4, 2014 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleEthanol Coalition: Auto Engineers Expose EPA’s Oil Bias Andy Eubank More Questions than Answers about 2nd Beef Checkoff Home Indiana Agriculture News More Questions than Answers about 2nd Beef Checkoff SHARE 2nd checkoff questionsAg Secretary Tom Vilsack is moving ahead with plans to create a second beef check off. USDA is expected to file a notice in the Federal Register early this month seeking public comment on the proposal.  Cattlemen’s Beef Board Operating Committee Member Linda Gilbert of South Dakota says she has many questions about the second program and its possible affects.“There are a lot of questions that we all have on how that will work in conjunction with the current checkoff and what the Cattlemen’s Beef Board role will be and what we need to be aware of. So, at this time I more questions. I don’t have any answers.”Gilbert says she’s not worried about a second program being put out because producers will eventually decide on which check off prevails.“I’m not as concerned because I do believe that it will be about what the producers want, and that’s who we need to be listening to. They have indicated that they want to see some changes and possibly this is the best route. We just don’t know yet.”Gilbert is hoping producers will weigh in with their comments and help give the Ag Secretary direction on where to go.“I would encourage people to definitely be a part of the comment period because that is where he’s going to find what the interests of the producers and the beef industry are. It seems like the industry groups have had a hard time coming together. That’s not surprising to me. We have a lot of different parts of our chain.”The parallel check off program the Ag Secretary is planning would likely be funded by an additional one dollar per head fee that producers would pay while continuing to pay a dollar per head to fund the current check off program.last_img read more
