Fruit and vegetable consumption and prevention of cancer: the Black Churches United for Better Health project. (1/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effects of the Black Churches United for Better Health project on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among rural African American church members in North Carolina. METHODS: Ten counties comprising 50 churches were pair matched and randomly assigned to either intervention or delayed intervention (no program until after the follow-up survey) conditions. A multicomponent intervention was conducted over approximately 20 months. A total of 2519 adults (77.3% response rate) completed both the baseline and 2-year follow-up interviews. RESULTS: The 2 study groups consumed similar amounts of fruits and vegetables at baseline. AT the 2-year follow-up, the intervention group consumed 0.85 (SE = 0.12) servings more than the delayed intervention group (P < .0001). The largest increases were observed among people 66 years or older (1 serving), those with education beyond high school (0.92 servings), those widowed or divorced (0.96 servings), and those attending church frequently (1.3 servings). The last improvement occurred among those aged 18 to 37 years and those who were single. CONCLUSIONS: The project was a successful model for achieving dietary change among rural African Americans.  (+info)

Maintaining mammography adherence through telephone counseling in a church-based trial. (2/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effectiveness of telephone counseling in a church-based mammography promotion intervention trial. METHODS: Thirty churches were randomized to telephone counseling and control conditions; telephone interview data were used in assessing intervention effects on mammography adherence. Separate analyses were conducted for baseline-adherent participants (maintaining adherence) and baseline-nonadherent participants (conversion to adherence). RESULTS: Year 1 follow-up data indicated that the telephone counseling intervention maintained mammography adherence among baseline-adherent participants and reduced the nonadherence rate from 23% to 16%. CONCLUSIONS: Partnerships between the public health and faith communities are potentially effective conduits to promote maintenance of widely endorsed health behaviors such as regular cancer screening.  (+info)

The paediatrician and the rabbi. (3/47)

OBJECTIVES: During recent decades, rabbis in Israel have been playing an increasing role in the consultation of patients or their families on medical issues. The study was performed to determine the attitude of physicians to rabbinical consultation by parents of sick children for purposes of basic medical decision making. DESIGN AND SETTING: A questionnaire was prepared which contained questions regarding physicians' reactions to specific medical situations as well as their demographic data. The study participants included all the available physicians who were employed in the study period at one tertiary medical centre in Israel, which is not associated with any religious organisation. The questionnaire was presented personally to all of the physicians who were available for the study. RESULTS: Between 63% and 77% of the respondents were accepting of rabbinical consultation in regard to medical decisions. Nevertheless, in cases of divergence from accepted medical practice and in emergencies, almost all stated they would take measures to resist the rabbi's advice. This attitude did not correlate with the physician's age, religious status or experience in medicine. CONCLUSIONS: Israeli physicians respect rabbis' suggestions in the area of medical decision making, though they would not let a rabbi's advice interfere with their decisions if they believed the rabbi's opinion went against medical need. In order to prevent an untoward effect of the rabbinical involvement in medicine, rules should be set to establish norms for rabbi-physician collaboration.  (+info)

Role of Black churches in health promotion programs: lessons from the Los Angeles Mammography Promotion in Churches Program. (4/47)

OBJECTIVES: This article assesses pastor-level factors that affect the successful recruitment and implementation of community-based health promotion programs in Black churches. METHODS: Semistructured interviews with 16 pastors of Black churches were analyzed for content. RESULTS: We found that although the involvement of Black pastors in an array of secular activities makes them open to participate in health programs, their overcommitment to other issues can negatively influence their ability to participate. Second, although Black pastors appreciate being included in and benefiting from health research, minorities' history of being underserved and exploited can lead to suspiciousness and reluctance to participate. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that those interested in developing church-based health programs in the Black community must be attuned to how the same factors can both facilitate and hinder a program's development.  (+info)

Alternative mental health services: the role of the black church in the South. (5/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the extent to which churches in the South were providing mental health and social services to congregations and had established linkages with formal systems of care. METHODS: A computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) survey was conducted with pastors from 269 Southern churches. RESULTS: Black churches reported providing many more services than did White churches, regardless of urban or rural location. Few links between churches and formal provider systems were found, irrespective of the location--urban or rural--or racial composition of the churches. CONCLUSIONS: Results are discussed in terms of the potential for linking faith communities and formal systems of care, given the centrality of the Black church in historical context.  (+info)

Patterns and correlates of contacting clergy for mental disorders in the United States. (6/47)

OBJECTIVE: To present nationally representative data on the part played by clergy in providing treatment to people with mental disorders in the United States. DATA SOURCES: The National Comorbidity Survey (NCS), a nationally representative general population survey of 8,098 respondents ages 15-54. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. DATA COLLECTION: A modified version of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview was used to assess DSM-III-R mental disorders. Reports were obtained on age of onset of disorders, age of first seeking treatment, and treatment in the 12 months before interview with each of six types of professionals (clergy, general medical physicians, psychiatrists, other mental health specialists, human services providers, and alternative treatment providers). PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: One-quarter of those who ever sought treatment for mental disorders did so from a clergy member. Although there has been a decline in this proportion between the 1950s (31.3 percent) and the early 1990s (23.5 percent), the clergy continue to be contacted by higher proportions than psychiatrists (16.7 percent) or general medical doctors (16.7 percent). Nearly one-quarter of those seeking help from clergy in a given year have the most seriously impairing mental disorders. The majority of these people are seen exclusively by the clergy, and not by a physician or mental health professional. CONCLUSIONS: The clergy continue to play a crucial role in the U.S. mental health care delivery system. However, interventions appear to be needed to ensure that clergy members recognize the presence and severity of disorders, deliver therapies of sufficient intensity and quality, and collaborate appropriately with health care professionals.  (+info)

Research expectations among African American church leaders in the PRAISE! project: a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research. (7/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine the expectations and satisfaction of pastors and lay leaders regarding a research partnership in a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods. METHODS: Telephone and self-administered print surveys were administered to 78 pastors and lay leaders. In-depth interviews were conducted with 4 pastors after study completion. RESULTS: The combined survey response rate was 65%. Research expectations included honest and frequent communication, sensitivity to the church environment, interaction as partners, and results provided to the churches. Satisfaction with the research partnership was high, but so was concern about the need for all research teams to establish trust with church partners. CONCLUSIONS: Pastors and lay leaders have high expectations regarding university obligations in research partnerships. An intervention study based on CBPR methods was able to meet most of these expectations.  (+info)

Moving beyond attitudinal barriers: understanding African Americans' support for organ and tissue donation. (8/47)

PURPOSE: African Americans are disproportionately represented among individuals in need of an organ transplant, due in part to low donation rates in this population. The research literature has focused on attitudinal barriers to donation; however, the current study explores individual experiences and values that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. PROCEDURES: Focus group participants were 26 African-American clergymen and 42 African-American parishioners recruited from seven Christian churches in the metro Atlanta area. FINDINGS: Although a large number of participants had previous exposure to organ and tissue donation and transplantation, the majority of these experiences were negative, and participants felt a general fear and lack of knowledge about the process of donation and transplantation. Despite these negative experiences, respondents reported personal values (e.g., the desire to help others and acceptance of group responsibility) and religious values (e.g., the desire to carry out God's will and to have faith in God) that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. CONCLUSION: An understanding of supportive attitudes toward donation may help improve the development of effective culturally sensitive intervention messages targeting the African-American religious community with the ultimate goal of increasing the pool of organs available for transplantation.  (+info)

Clergy houses are typically owned and maintained by a church, as a benefit to its clergy. The practice exists in many denominations because of the tendency of clergy to be transferred from one church to another at relatively frequent intervals. Catholic clergy houses in particular may be lived in by several priests from a parish. Clergy houses frequently serve as the administrative office of the local parish as well as a residence; they are normally located next to, or at least close to, the church their occupant serves.. Partly because of the general conservationism of churches, many clergy houses are of historic interest or even importance. In the United Kingdom the 14th-century Alfriston Clergy House was the first property to be acquired by the National Trust. It was purchased in a state of near ruin in 1896 for £10, the vicarage having moved elsewhere long before.[1]. In some countries where the clergy houses were often rather grand they have now been sold off by the churches, exchanged for ...
Clergy Shirts, Mens and Womens Clergy Shirts, Clergy Collars, Clergy Collar Buttons - Gaspard. Our wardrobe essentials include high-quality mens and womens clergy shirts.
Clergy is the generic term used to describe the formal religious leadership within the Orthodox Christian Church. The term comes from Greek κληρος (a lot, that which is assigned by lot (allotment) or metaphorically, heritage). Clergy in the Orthodox Church are those individuals set aside to perform certain tasks and/or exercise certain authority in the life of the Church. Orthodox clergy take care of the ritual aspects of the religious life of the Church, teach, or otherwise help in spreading Orthodox doctrine and practices. They often deal with life-cycle events such as child birth, baptism, marriage, and death. Clergy work both inside and outside houses of worship, and can be found working in hospitals, nursing homes, missions, armed forces, etc. There is a significant difference between clergy and theologians; clergy have the above-mentioned duties while theologians are scholars of religion and theology and are not necessarily clergy. A layperson can be a theologian. The two fields, of ...

I cant help but feel that the great tidal wave of Clergy converts, inspired by Pope John Paul II, and eased in by a crop of lay apostolates geared at making straight the paths into the Church, is dwindling. No new blood. Most of the significant names are people who seem to be within a singular set, a group, a clique. And no younger folks are coming in to light the way. I hear the same stats over and over (more than a thousand here or there), but given the hundreds of thousands of Protestant clergy around the world, thats not much. There are likely as many priests leaving the Church and embracing Protestantism as clergy becoming Catholic. I knew of several in my own ministry days. Far more in proportion than the Protestant Clergy Ive found since I became Catholic ...

The Civil Constitution of the Clergy, passed on 12 July 1790, turned the remaining clergy into employees of the state. This established an election system for parish priests and bishops and set a pay rate for the clergy. Many Catholics objected to the election system because non-Catholics could participate in the election of their priests and bishops. Eventually, in November 1790, the National Assembly began to require an oath of loyalty to the Civil Constitution from all the members of the clergy.This led to a schism between those clergy who swore the required oath and accepted the new arrangement and those who refused to do so. Overall 54 percent of the clergy nationwide took the oath.Widespread refusal led to legislation against the clergy, forcing them into exile, deporting them forcibly, or executing them as traitors. Pope Pius VI never accepted the Civil Constitution of the Clergy, further isolating the Church in France. During the Reign of Terror, extreme efforts of de-Christianization ...
Ministry is a people-intensive profession. But ironically, a large number of professional ministers appear to be rather lonely people. A recent study of morale among United Methodist ministers in Minnesota indicates that while almost all enjoy their work and feel satisfied with their professional performance, they are also afflicted with self-doubts and loneliness. Experiencing the same personal crises faced by professionals in all fields, clergy often find themselves with very few shoulders to cry on. The joys go uncelebrated, the pains go unsoothed, the stresses go unresolved. Ultimately, the minister, his or her family, and the congregation probably all suffer.. In the spring of 1985, the Board of Ordained Ministry decided that it was time to take the temperature of Minnesota United Methodist clergy and conduct an informal survey of the 400 pastors under appointment within the state. A simple questionnaire was designed, covering a variety of issues dealing with lifestyles and job ...
Except as related to Social Security Tax, the clear consensus of professional opinion is that Episcopal clergy are almost always employees of their respective churches. Clergy who are employees must therefore file their tax returns as employees according to Revenue Ruling 80-110, and should no longer use Schedule C to report church compensation. They should receive W-2 forms from their church employers. These W-2s will, however, differ from those of lay employees of the church. The chief differences are these: ...

2004-10-05 STATUS OF AWARDS OF THE RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH [MP] I. The awards of the Russian Orthodox Church are means for rewarding the clergy and laity for their efforts and achievements for Orthodoxy - in pastoral service, in theological, scholarly and administrative accomplishments, in the revival of spiritual life, the establishment of temples and missionary, charitable, social and educational efforts. There are two kinds of awards: hierarchical and ecclesiastical. [Only the hierarchical awards will be described here] II. Hierarchical awards of the Russian Orthodox Church These serve for the encouragement of hierarchs and clergy and are witnesses of their worthy carrying out of ecclesiastical service. The hierarchical awards are as follows: - elevation in rank; - elements of liturgical raiments which have a spiritual significance; - distinction in celebration (the service of the Divine Liturgy with open Royal doors up to the Cherubic hymn or up to the Our Father.) The awards are granted in ...

As common as the experience can be, nothing prepares you for being mauled or mistreated by mean sheep. (Note: None of this is to suggest that there is no such thing as a mean shepherd. That just isnt the topic for this column.). There are a few passing conversations about it in seminary-most of which focus on family systems theory. Almost all of that instruction is devoted to teaching clergy to manage mean sheep and it is rarely if ever devoted to teaching clergy how to protect themselves..... ...
Daniel Burke, Study: 3 Percent of Women Victims of Clergy Sexual Advances,Ethicsdaily.com (September 11, 2009): More than 3 percent of adult women who attend religious services at least once a month have been victims of clergy sexual misconduct, according to researchers at Baylor University. Put another way: in a congregation of 400 people, seven adult women have been targets of sexual advances by clergy, the study says. In addition, in one of 50 cases, the religious leader was married, according to the report. Four percent of respondents said they knew of a close friend or family member who had experienced a sexual advance by a clergy member in their own congregation, the study says. Baylor researchers said their report is the largest scientific study into clergy sexual misconduct with adults in the U.S. Because many people are familiar with some of the high-profile cases of sexual misconduct, most people assume that it is just a matter of a few charismatic leaders preying on vulnerable ...

The Presbyterian Panel began in 1973 and is an ongoing panel study in which mailed questionnaires are used to survey representative samples of constituency groups of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). These constituency groups include members, elders, pastors serving in a congregation, and specialized clergy serving elsewhere. Panels are re-sampled every three years. The main goal of this study is to gather broad information about Presbyterians in terms of their faith (beliefs, church background, and levels of church involvement), and their social, economic and demographic characteristics (age, sex, marital status, living arrangements, etc.). The May 1998 survey focuses on communications across the church.
Rabbi Carolyn Braun was exercising at her home in Portland when she saw the inconceivable events of Sept. 11, 2001, flash across the television screen.. Like rabbis around the world, she had been mulling inspirational messages that she might deliver at Temple Beth El during the upcoming High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. She saw one plane crash into the World Trade Center, then another. In a few horrible moments, terrorists from the other side of the globe redefined the focus of her anticipated sermons.. I remember jumping off my NordicTrack and thinking, This is crazy, Braun recalled recently. My first thought wasnt that it was planned. Thats just not how I think. But as I stood there, the sound of rabbis everywhere tearing up their sermons was profound.. Ten years later, Braun and other Maine clergy are reflecting on the religious and spiritual impacts of the Sept. 11 attacks on their congregations and communities. Some, including Braun, are participating in ecumenical ...

Within the Black community, the subpopulation most disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS is Black men who have sex with men (MSM) with prevalence rates twice those of White MSM. Black women account for the majority of new AIDS cases among women and are 23 times more likely to be living with AIDS than White women and 4 times more likely than Latinas.

The purpose of the questionnaire is to elicit the views and opinions of African and Caribbean pastors and leaders on a range of social and political issues to inform the Black Church Political Mobilisation: A Manifesto for Action. Following a series of consultations last autumn with activists (OBV, London), academics (Queens College, Birmingham), church leaders (NTCG Leadership Training Centre, Northampton) and young people (CTE, London) the questionnaire is designed to further canvass the views of the wider church leadership, especially those who ...
The organizers of a meeting of conservative United Methodists planning for a denominational split have published a response to critics of the meeting held Jan. 25 at Clearbranch United Methodist Church in Trussville.. The Rev. Paul Lawler, pastor of Christ United Methodist Church in Shelby County and president of the Wesleyan Covenant Association of North Alabama, published a response to a column by Arab First United Methodist Pastor Steve West. Lawlers blog post was co-signed by 55 other United Methodist clergy.. As the expected vote on a possible split in the United Methodist Church approaches in May at the next meeting of the General Conference, clergy in Alabama have been staking out positions and explaining where they stand.. Here is the statement Lawler and others published today on the New Methodist Movement blog:. A Response to Steve Wests article, Why Im not leaving the United Methodist Church. On Jan. 25, a large gathering of United Methodist lay-people and clergy took place in the ...
Alright, alright, sounds pretty on the level so far.. The letter then moves to its first bullet point, addressing the lack of education and employment opportunities for black men. Young black men do face a higher unemployment rate when compared to black women and white men, and the letters demand that Clinton move beyond making appearances at black churches into actually creating a black policy agenda is fair.. Then the letter takes a hard right turn and starts tumbling precipitously downhill. It becomes obvious that expressed concerns about poverty and violence are just a vehicle for the groups true aims: taking away rights from groups differently marginalized from themselves.. The clergy who have signed on to the letter criticize Clinton for comments she made in a 2015 speech concerning the right of women everywhere to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth. According to these clergy, such a right violates their religious freedom and is reminiscent of totalitarianism. They continue ...

We conclude, on the record before us, that the towns prayer practice must be viewed as an endorsement of a particular religious viewpoint. This conclusion is supported by several considerations, including the prayer-giver selection process, the content of the prayers, and the contextual actions (and inactions) of prayer-givers and town officials. We emphasize that, in reaching this conclusion, we do not rely on any single aspect of the towns prayer practice, but rather on the totality of the circumstances present in this case. The towns process for selecting prayer-givers virtually ensured a Christian viewpoint. Christian clergy delivered each and every one of the prayers for the first nine years of the towns prayer practice, and nearly all of the prayers thereafter. In the towns view, the preponderance of Christian clergy was the result of a random selection process. The randomness of the process, however, was limited by the towns practice of inviting clergy almost exclusively from places ...
The thesis begins with raising a question of female clergy(Jungyu) system, the means of controlling and supervising female clergies sexuality, which regulates that female clergy-Jungyu, in Won-buddhism, should be single and unmarried. It examines how the controlling over womens sexuality is practiced in Won-buddhism involving the female clergy system thereby it analyzes various factors of reproducing sexual control. Throughout history traditional religions tend to adopt patriarchy to facilitate mission work and take the lead in the Korean society based on patriarchy, despite pursuing emancipation of the disadvantaged contemporarily. Therefore, religions are constructed in a patriarchal way with controlling over womens sexuality and celibacy which has been taken as imperative qualification to establish the institution more firmly as well as to exclude women from administrative positions. The organization of Won-buddhism, like that of other religion, introduces the patriarchal customs of ...
It also points out Hawaii is one of only a handful of states that do not include members of the clergy as mandatory reporters of child abuse and neglect.. The version of the bill presented to the committee by Puna Sen. Russell Ruderman, the committee chairman, was one proposed by the state Department of Human Services that removed a provision which would exempt clergy from reporting information about suspected abuse acquired during confessions.. The vote was 3-2, with Ruderman and Vice Chairman Karl Rhoads voting aye, and Sen. Les Ihara voting aye with reservations. Sens. Kurt Fevella and Gil Riviere voted nay.. I believe the top concern here is protecting children from abuse. I realize there are competing concerns, said Ruderman, who chaired the meeting on Zoom from his Puna home while the others were at the state capitol. … There are many who are concerned with protecting our clergy and the religious processes, and I share that concern, but that concern does not rise to the point of ...
By the fire-ordeal the power of deciding was just as unequivocally left in their [the clergys] hands. It was generally believed that fire would not burn the innocent, and the clergy, of course, took care that the innocent, or such as it was their pleasure or interest to declare so, should be so warned before undergoing the ordeal, as to preserve themselves without any difficulty from the fire. One mode of ordeal was to place red-hot ploughshares on the ground at certain distances, and then, blindfolding the accused person, make him walk barefooted over them. If he stepped regularly in the vacant spaces, avoiding the fire, he was adjudged innocent; if he burned himself, he was declared guilty. As none but the clergy interfered with the arrangement of the ploughshares, they could always calculate beforehand the result of the ordeal. To find a person guilty, they had only to place them at irregular distances, and the accused was sure to tread upon one of them. When Emma, the wife of King Ethelred, ...

In 2016 the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, demanded to meet privately with several senior Chinese house church leaders. Although the content of their discussions was kept strictly confidential, the results were soon evident, as waves of persecution broke out against the house churches throughout China.. In Shandongs Qingdao City, the police visited a local house church leader and told him, We know all about your meetings. We have been instructed to close you down, but we will continue to let you meet if you give us all the weekly offerings you collect in your churches!. The house church leader rejected their attempted extortion, and the church broke up into numerous small groups, allowing them to gather discreetly and without disturbance from the corrupt local authorities.. In 2017 and 2018, many pastors and evangelists have been arrested and interrogated in Shandong, while others have been bundled into vans or taken from their homes and sent to one of Chinas notorious secret black ...
Since the scandal year of 2002, the Catholic church has faced declining membership, financial woes and erosion of moral authority. Reforms have produced mixed results and parishioners are still coping.
I went to Bishop Schneiders Mass at Ramsgate some months ago, I was made very welcome by the Parish Priest, as usual and by the other clergy attending and I had several invitations to lunch, which as I had some parishioners with me and lunch was in restaurants I refused because I some couldnt afford it. My last invitation was from Dominic, the director of music, he invited me back to his parents house, I explained I had five parishioners with me, so I couldnt. His reply, Oh bring them along, Im taking the choir anyhow, my mother is used to catering for large numbers! I think there are thirteen in the family, they are one of those large Catholic families that not only welcome the children God gave them but also their childrens friends, and anyone else God sends them. They have certainly had a priest or two staying with them for extended periods. What I love about families like that is the sense of abandonment to Gods will, which I am convinced is really behind the Churchs teaching, not ...
There is a high level of expectation of confidentiality for ministers. The Presbyterian Church does not have the sanctity of a confessional as Catholic priests do, but personal information given by parishioners may not be disclosed to others without the permission of the person concerned. Where there can be grey areas is around information that may or may not be held by the church community as a whole, such as the health status of an elderly parishioner. Ministers are encouraged to check with parishioners before sharing personal information (such as a diagnosis) with others such as a pastoral team, or on a prayer chain. Within a church there are varying levels of confidentiality from strictly private to fully open, and clarity about who can be told what is very important. The same applies to colleagues ...

On Jan. 24, the feast day of St. Francis de Sales - patron saint of journalists - Pope Benedict XVI issued a message titled Truth, Proclamation and Authenticity of Life in the Digital Age.. He invited Christians to join the network of relationships which the digital era has made possible. Pretty hip. (Note: The pope has his own social-media site, Pope2You.). So do other clergy use social media in their duties?. A quick survey of priests, ministers, rabbis and one imam made clear that social media were made for religion, in which connection and community are key.. I love Facebook, says Pastor Andrena Ingram of St. Michaels Lutheran Church in Mount Airy. You just reach everybody and anybody.. Like many religious congregations, St. Michaels has a robust website - When people come to visit us from out of town, very often its because they saw the website.. On Facebook, Ingram posts news and announcements, and coordinates a youth group. She also runs a separate Facebook page to minister ...
At the final session in Seoul, Ezra Jin (Beijing Zion Church) led the Chinese leaders in drafting and signing their own commitment called the Seoul Commitment as a Chinese response to the Cape Town Commitment released from the Cape Town 2010 Congress. The Seoul Commitment calls the church in China to commit to loving the gospel of Christ, to maintaining unity of the Spirit, to joining hands in partnership with the global church and to raising up younger leaders in the spirit of Lausanne to pass on the vision of world evangelization.. Following the Asian Church Leaders Forum, the Chinese participants met on 29 June. Among many tangible outcomes, the participants committed to raising up 200 Chinese younger leaders to join the Lausanne Younger Leaders network, many of whom may participate in the next Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering planned for 2015.. In the spirit of Lausanne, let us prayerfully anticipate the fruit God will bring as the global church partners together with the Chinese ...

The Chief Rabbis explained that the prohibition is largely due to the fact that a Jew may not enter the Temple Mount area while he or she carry the impurity of a dead person, for which we do not have a remedy in our day.. But Rabbi Yuval Sherlo, Dean of the Hesder Yeshiva in Petach Tikvah, told the Jewish Press that he thinks the Chief Rabbis prohibition is the result of sheer fear, which brought about an incorrect and disproportionate reaction.. Rabbi Sherlo said the Chief Rabbis had been informed that a large group of religious Jews were planning to climb up to Temple Mount this coming Purim, and they were concerned about safety issues.. They were looking to solve one problem, but created a much bigger one instead, he said.. The announcement by the Chief Rabbis was endorsed by Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi Doron, Rabbi Avigdor Nebenzahl, and the rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch.. Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, attacked the ...

Exploration of Bishop Horsleys part in the renovation of the Church at the national level establishes his claim to be regarded as a reformer, but one of a moderate and uneven kind. Like earlier High Churchmen in the Laudian mould, he was chiefly interested in reforms that buttressed the temporal pillars of the Church and rescued the clergy from the condescension of laymen. He was less sensitive to the grievances of the laity against the clergy, and stood in with the archbishop of Canterbury and most other bishops against the Younger Pitts schemes for commutation of tithes. Horsley was never complacent about the state of the Church of England. When the French Revolution and the English Republicans arose to challenge the values for which it stood, he developed a concern to refurbish its image in the sight of respectable Englishmen. The remedies that he favoured were piecemeal. He had no vision of an overall reform to be achieved by redistributing revenues, but thought that Parliament should strengthen
Rabbi Apple is not only not American by birth or citizenship, but he has also never served as the spiritual leader of an American congregation.. His first rabbinical posts were in the London congregations of Bayswater and Hampstead before becoming the spiritual leader of Sydneys The Great Synagogue in the early 1970s.. Rabbi Apple was installed at a Melaveh Malka event at the home of Rabbi Emanuel and Rena Quint by Rabbi Mark Dratch, executive director of the National RCA. Other rabbis participating in the program include Jeff Bienenfeld, Reuven Tradburks, Elan Adler and Aaron Adler.. Rabbi Raymond Apple told J-Wire: I joined the RCA years ago at the suggestion of the then Chief Rabbi Immanuel Jakobovits but was in Australia and could not attend meetings, though on a visit to NY I went to see the then RCA president and executive vice-president .. When I made Aliyah I began attending meetings of the Israel Region and became involved in their activities, even joining their Board despite my ...
Every pastor is an interim pastor.. Ive seen that saying a few times, and the typical thought behind it is that every pastor will eventually hand off his ministry to a successor unless the Lord comes again. This saying helps us to keep our ministry in perspective, reminds us that the church is bigger than our individual ministries, and moves us to pray that the Lord will sustain His church since we can only do so much for so long.. Perhaps you, like me, are one of those successors, the next man in the lineup of interim pastors. You are not a church-planting pastor but a committed pastor who God is using to continue the ministry of a church that was established before your coming. How will our ministry endure? How can we minister in such a way so that our church will outlast us? Does the Bible give any specific guidance to us for this kind of ministry?. It does, actually, and below is a quick walk through a helpful passage, 1 Corinthians 3:10-15. When it comes to pastoring an already ...
ONE of the states most high profile Jewish leaders is fighting off calls for his resignation after he urged rabbis not to report allegations of child abuse to the police.. Rabbi Yosef Feldman, president of the Rabbinical Council of NSW and based at the Southern Sydney Synagogue, has sparked outrage in a series of emails to other rabbis when he said it should be up to them to determine whether a paedophile should be reported to authorities.. The rabbi also said that, where possible, allegations of abuse should be dealt with outside the Australian legal system.. Rabbis could instead threaten the child abuser with publicity of their crime as an alternative to reporting it.. I really dont understand why as soon as something of serious loshon horo (evil talk) is heard about someone of even child molestation should we immediately go to the secular authorities (sic), Rabbi Feldman wrote.. One must go to a Rov (rabbi) who should firstly investigate the veracity of the complaint and if thought to ...
The Roman Catholic Church in Dublin covered up decades of child abuse committed by priests because bishops wanted to protect the churchs reputation at the expense of victims, an expert commission reported Thursday after a three-year probe into previously secret church records.
The royal family was living under house arrest in the Tuileries Palace. An angry mob got into the building on June 20, 1792, and found their way to the King. The crowd shouted insults and were in an ugly mood. The King remained calm and obediently put on the red cap of liberty (a symbol of revolution) at the mobs insistence. When they thrust a bottle of wine at him he drank a toast to the health of the nation. But he refused to change his position on the clergy. Under the Constitution of 1791 (creating a constitutional monarchy) he had exercised his veto of a proposal to punish priests who refused to support the changes to the church (placing the church under state control - see The Civil Constitution of the Clergy). A religious man, the King felt it would violate his conscience to agree to the mobs demands. The incident ended without bloodshed but by August the mob was back.. This time the royal family barely escaped with their lives. The kings guards were killed and the King and his family ...
The Ministerial Health Certificate Program (MHCP) has been developed in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health’s Center for the Study of Community Health and Congregations for Public Health. This program was developed to provide a mechanism for ministers to learn first hand about public health and the role clergy can play in addressing disease prevention and health promotion from within their churches and communities they serve. A group of multidisciplinary public health professionals provide ministers and other church leaders with practical tools, guidance and information to use during worship and fellowship. The overarching goal is to increase the confidence level in presenting health messages to their congregants. The Ministerial Health Certificate Program is a one-year course offering designed for students at the Birmingham-Easonian Baptist Bible College. The MHCP is offered in two 12-week academic semesters. Each term, the class will ...
Religious leaders across Vermont on Friday called for a stop to hate-filled speech and actions around the country and in the state since the presidential election and urged unity and a greater commitment to fighting oppression and injustice.
The Associated Press. HOUSTON (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court granted a reprieve Tuesday to a Texas inmate scheduled to die for fatally stabbing an 85-year-old woman more than two decades ago, continuing a more than four-month delay of executions in the nations busiest death penalty state during the coronavirus pandemic.. The U.S. Supreme Court blocked Ruben Gutierrezs execution about an hour before he could have been executed. Gutierrezs attorneys had argued his religious rights are being violated because the prison system wont allow a chaplain to accompany him in the death chamber.. The Texas prison system last year banned clergy from the death chamber following a Supreme Court ruling that halted the execution of another inmate, Patrick Murphy, who had requested a Buddhist adviser be allowed in the chamber. In response to the ruling in Murphys case, the Texas prison system changed its policy to no longer allow clergy in the death chamber and that only prison security staff would be allowed ...
A temple (from the Latin word templum) is a structure reserved for religious or spiritual rituals and activities such as prayer and sacrifice. It is typically used for such buildings belonging to all faiths where a more specific term such as church, mosque or synagogue is not generally used in English. These include Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism among religions with many modern followers, as well as other ancient religions such as Ancient Egyptian religion. The form and function of temples is thus very variable, though they are often considered by believers to be in some sense the house of one or more deities. Typically offerings of some sort are made to the deity, and other rituals enacted, and a special group of clergy maintain, and operate the temple. The degree to which the whole population of believers can access the building varies significantly; often parts or even the whole main building can only be accessed by the clergy. Temples typically have a main building and a larger precinct, ...
Charlie Hebdo has suddenly become the best-known example of a venerable French tradition: vituperative and unrelenting anti-religious satire, a provocative yet regular phenomenon of French public life. And now-not, alas, for the first time in that nations history-it has occasioned actual bloodshed. Lampooning of the Bible, Christian doctrine, and clergy dates back almost 400 years to the strong thinkers, French learned skeptics in the 16th century. The primary target of anti-religious satire was Frances official religion, Catholicism, the Churchs ties to the state, and its control over education. And the ridiculing wit long directed against these targets would eventually play a central and crucial role in reducing the status and influence of religion in the French Republic... The method of the forerunners of Charlie Hebdo-unrelenting and vicious satire of religion and clergy - proved so effective that France became a fully secular state, to such an extent that certain of its practices, ...

In his previous book, Clergy Killers, Rediger concluded the description of the damage done in abusive congregations with a call to pastors to become fit in body, mind and spirit in order to avoid being vulnerable and unable to deal competently with difficult people and conflicted situations. Fit to Be a Pastor expands on that premise, and the sense of urgency with which Rediger as pastor and pastoral counselor writes about the current unfit state of most congregation leaders.. Pastoral unfitness is a shared as well as personal problem, demanding nothing less than the need to reinvent a healthy, pastoral role based on mind-body-spirit fitness. This change must begin with an attitude of confession and repentance, followed by healing and then adopting those practices which constitute a healthy lifestyle.. Practical suggestions are included for nutrition and physical exercise, as well as spiritual nourishment and mental stimulation. Both burnout and boredom are described as wake-up call ...
In 1797 when the official état civil (civil registration) was introduced, a French order required that the priests turn their parish registers over to the communities (civil jurisdiction). But the clergy, mistreated by the French regime, obeyed this order only partially. Thus, beginning with that date, part of the registers were deposited with the local civil government (communes) and part of them remained in the hands of the clergy ...
Almost 30 of us were at that March meeting in New Jersey. We were sharing our experiences as survivors of clergy abuse and discussing ways we could work together to help the victims of that abuse.The Attorney General of New Jersey and the Executive Director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Office of Child and Youth Protection were there to listen. The five bishops who lead the five dioceses that make up New Jersey also were invited. None of them showed up. The absence of the bishops led me to reflect on how little has changed with the Roman Catholic Church since the clergy abuse scandal erupted just over a year ago.…
infection rate. And little, if any, local willingness to recognize a problem exists.. But its not just AIDS. In Nigeria, faith based paranoia on the part of Islamic clergy, and politicians, caused a polio epidemic, which is now spreading to other Islamic nations. The UN has been trying for years to wipe out polio (which has been eliminated in most Western nations). In the last few years, UN medical resources were massing to wipe polio out in one of the last places where it still thrives; northern Nigeria. But some local Islamic clergy got the idea that these foreigners and their medicine (polio vaccine) were actually out to poison young Moslem females and make them sterile. Yeah, its nuts, but it went over big in northern Nigeria and stopped the polio eradication program cold. The Islamic clerics finally relented (after the UN brought in Islamic medical experts, and jumped through a lot of hoops), but by then it was too late. The polio was moving to areas where it had earlier been eliminated. ...

Two years later in 1965, following the call of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King for white clergy to join the locally-led voters registration efforts in the South, Jonathan Daniels (seminarian at Episcopal Theological School, one of EDSs predecessor schools), and other white clergy and seminarians came to Alabama to offer their support to Student Nonviolent Coordinating Community (SNCC) efforts in Selma and eventually through to rural Lowndes Country, AL. On August 14, 1965, Daniels was arrested with a group of SNCC workers as they picketed whites-only stores in Fort Deposit, AL. They were held at the Hayneville jail and were released six days later on August 20. While waiting for transport, a group of four people went to Varners Cash Store to purchase a soft drink on the hot August day. The group-comprising Jonathan Daniels, Ruby Sales, Richard Morrisroe, and Joyce Bailey-was met in the store by Tom Coleman, an unpaid special deputy. Coleman threatened the group and aimed his shotgun toward ...
John, when asked, said he was not the Messiah, but the one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord! Some bishops get to thinking that they are the Messiah (it is a dangerous personality trait in all clergy), and forget that all of us, clergy and lay alike are crying in our own wildernesses, prepare the way of the Lord. The blessing of the end of Lambeth is that bishops from all over the world, who serve in relative autonomy and isolation, saw that there were human beings, like themselves, of many diverse cultures and approaches, who are proclaiming and preparing the way for Christ. My hope is that we can all remember that even when we feel all alone and left to our own devices, that there are leagues of people across the globe, preparing hearts and lives for Jesus Christ. None of us is asked to be the Messiah, nor are we to tame the wilderness alone. In fact, there will always be wilderness in our world - challenges that darken daytime, dense traps that bring on fear, voices ...

The goal when talking with the child or family members is to uncover and resolve the root cause of the self-mutilation. The goal is not to get the self-mutilation to stop. When we focus on getting teens to stop hurting themselves, they feel unaccepted, judged, and unloved. These feelings will drive the teen further into this unhealthy behavior.. When a teen is hurting themselves they are in need of professional counseling as soon as possible so that the root cause can be found and resolved. This is necessary and cannot be overstated. If you are a church leader and not a professional counselor, social worker, psychologist, etc., then it is beyond your scope of work.. As a church leader what is my scope of work?. ...
PARISHIONERS thanked God, and some wept with joy, as they worshipped for the first time in the new Stella Maris Church in Maroochydore.. We waited for a long time, but … we are home. Thank you, Lord, thank you. It is beautiful, said Josephine Schemvri, a parishioner of 20 years, wiping back heartfelt tears.. Alongside, her friend Gwen De Silva nodded in agreement. God has blessed our parish, she said.. For the past 18 months, Maroochydore Catholics have gathered in the nearby school hall, packing out chairs on a Saturday night and then stacking them again after the Masses.. No more. Their new Stella Maris Church - a $5 million architectural showpiece - has been delivered on budget one month ahead of schedule, meaning it is ready for expected bumper Christmas crowds.. It can comfortably seat 450 worshippers and can be expanded by simply opening the elegant floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors.. The beautiful new church has a casual openness, accentuated by its design to naturally catch the sea ...

ABout 5 years ago Romney won a few primary elections and church leaders began to consider how to utiltize this rare opportunity to spread the LDS gospel or grow the church. Alias, McCain won the nomination and went on to lose to President Obama.. About a year ago Romney began to win primaries and soon became the front runner. President Obama had done little if anything to fix the economy and his perceived anemic presidency seemed to be following in the footsteps of the Carter experience. Reelection seemed unlikely. With Romney looking more and more like Reagan the Mormon moment had arrived. Church leaders put into full swing a plan to perhaps double the full-time missionary force by tinkering with the age and gender parameters. The announcement in general conference would precede the win at the ballot box by a few weeks. With a Mormon in the white house, the doors to missionary work would swing open widely. God seemed to be with Romney as his momentum increased and he won the debates decisively ...
Chaplains may be ordained ministers or priests, or may have attended a chaplaincy or pastoral care program through a university or hospital.. Because rehabilitation focuses on the whole person--physical, emotional, social, and spiritual, the chaplain often plays a special part in helping a person with a disability cope and recover. When a hospital or rehabilitation center does not employ a chaplain, the patients own clergy or spiritual advisor often performs these functions.. Click here to view ...
Priests need to prepare for Lent too. The Book of the Prophet Malachi provides a kind of mini-examen for them.. As we consider the sins of the priests enumerated below, please understand that neither the biblical text nor my commentary should be construed as meaning that all or even most priests are like this. Sadly, though, sins and shortcomings are far too common among the clergy. As priests must strive to be better and more holy, so must the laity remember to pray for us.. With that in mind lets consider the sins of the priests (as described by Malachi) in three basic areas.. Shoddy Sacraments. A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a father, where is my honor? And if I am a master, where is my fear? So says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise my name. You say, How have we despised thy name? By offering polluted food upon my altar. And you say, How have we polluted it? By thinking that the Lords table may be despised. When you offer blind animals in ...
Donnelly had a huge motivator. He wanted to be around for his children - Maemie, 24, Eamonn, 18, Susannah, 12, and Catherine, 10, and his wife, Sunny. He had also been carrying around an important lesson from his father, about learning by example. He was one of those people who didnt tell you how to live; he lived his life and showed you, said Donnelly. I was always one of those guys who talked at his kids. Through this process, I realized my dads teaching is correct. I always said Id do anything for my kids - Id jump in front of a bus, or whatever. But I realized on May 19, that I wasnt doing everything for my kids, and that my talk was cheap. The revelation was that I needed to show, not talk ...
