(Samuel Mukunya (Anglican Church of Kenya) and Louisa Mojela (Anglican Church of Southern Africa) were not present). ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service — Auckland, New Zealand] One of the headlines for the Anglican Consultative Council’s 12-day meeting that concluded here on Nov. 7 (local time) ought to be, in the words of one of its members, “the Anglican Communion actually works.”“It’s alive and well, it’s exciting, it’s mission-focused … I want to honor the fact that this time we are really together,” said Suzanne Lawson, Anglican Church of Canada, during a reflection session just before the end of the meeting.The Rev. Maria Christina Borges Alvarez of Cuba told the council that the message she will take back home is about “the great commitment the Anglican Communion has in terms of gender justice, the elimination of violence — environment justice as well.”The council passed resolutions related to each of those issues during its Oct. 27-Nov. 7 meeting held primarily at Holy Trinity Cathedral here.And while the Very Rev. Herman Browne, Church of the Province of West Africa, said he thought the ACC “is becoming more and more a forum where real diversities can be heard and valued,” the Ven. Canon Moses Chin, Church of the Province of South East Asia, remarked on “how long it takes to agree on anything.”Anglican Communion Office staff member Stephen Lyon led the reflection session, calling first on lay members, then clergy and then moved “down in the pecking order,” asking “are there – stupid question – are there any bishops who want to say anything?” Loud laughter and applause met his question.Archbishop Ikechi Nwachukwu Nwosu of the Province of Aba, Church in Nigeria, said that knowing the challenges his diocese and province faces he is “worried about the project of maintaining the ACC and sustaining it for the future.”Diocese of Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga, ACC chair, concluded the session by saying “there was a degree of depth and honesty that I haven’t seen for long time, that wasn’t put on.”[Episcopal News Service plans a report on the reflections of Episcopal Church ACC members.]At a press briefing between the end of the meeting and the ACC’s closing Eucharist, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams said that the council’s work on concerns about gender-based violence, the environmental crisis and Christian witness in a pluralistic world “have been key for our work.”Those issues “are actually questions about what kind of humanity we’re seeking to promote and serve, which is a deeply Christian question,” he said.People are wondering about these issues and wondering what the church has to say about them and “we believe as a church we have unparalleled resources for enriching people’s humanity that way,” Williams said.“I am very grateful that we’ve gotten to this point. We’ve stuck together, we’ve found lots to do with each other and lots to say to each other,” he said.In one of its last official acts, ACC-15 passed a resolution meant to assuage impressions left after one of the few examples during the meeting of what one member called a “tug of war for and against.”Resolution 15.39 notes the adoption of 15.21 on the communion’s Continuing Indaba project the previous day and goes on to say that the council “understands Indaba to be a process of honest conversation that works to build community, energize mission and provide a context in which conflict can be resolved.”During the debate on Nov. 6 concerning the first resolution Kenyan Bishop Samson Mwalunda suggested adding that Continuing Indaba should be a process to undergird all pan-Anglican conferences.The council debated adding language to 15.21 saying that the process ought to be used “with a view to encouraging resolution of disputed issues.” Nwosu supported that addition, which ultimately failed.He later told Episcopal News Service that while he agrees with everything about the indaba project, “I just wanted a little bit of that direction to be added.”On Nov. 7, Southern Africa Archbishop Thabo Makgoba was allowed to bring Resolution 15.39 to the council even though the deadline for new resolutions had passed.The resolution is meant to affirm that “Indaba does not shy away from resolving problems” and acknowledges “its importance in holding us together through the gift of the Holy Spirit because we believe in communion” and as Anglicans receive part of their identity through communion, Makgoba said.He acknowledged that indaba processes have been used in different places with mixed outcomes. In Zimbabwe “it has not yielded positive results” but, has “alleviated tensions and conflict” elsewhere, he said.In the end, Makgoba said, “we didn’t want the motion yesterday to end in a tug of war for and against.”Church of England Bishop Stephen Cottrell (Diocese of Chelmsford) supported the new resolution “as a last word of intent that we do want to be a church that deals with each other, which is energized for mission and does seek to resolve its conflicts, hard though it is.”Scottish Episcopal Church Primus David Chillingworth, convener of the project’s reference group, told the council that “it was never our intention to suggest that Continuing Indaba was not about helping in the resolution of problems.”“Otherwise it would be simply talk without any destination,” he continued. “The concern was that it should not be seen primarily as a problem-solving tool because we believe that what is important is that we establish the relationships within which conflict can be resolved.”Chillingworth said Resolution 15.39 would “make it clear to people across the communion that Continuing Indaba is what we have established as part of the process by which our deeper problems can be resolved.”There was one resolution Nov. 7 on which there was no debate. Resolution 15.40, which gives thanks to God for the faithfulness and ministry of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, expresses deep appreciation for his leadership as president of ACC-13, 14 and 15 and wished God’s blessing on him, Jane Williams, Rhiannon and Pip their children as he retires. It was passed by ACC members standing and applauding, after which Williams came to the podium to note that he had abstained in the voting.ACC backgroundThe ACC is one of the four instruments of communion, the others being the archbishop of Canterbury (who serves as president of the ACC), the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops, and the Primates Meeting.Formed in 1969, the ACC includes clergy and lay people, as well as bishops, among its delegates. The membership includes from one to three persons from each of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, depending on the numerical size of each province. Where there are three members, there is a bishop, a priest and a lay person. Where fewer members are appointed, preference is given to lay membership. The ACC’s constitution is here.The council meets every three years or four years and the Auckland meeting is the council’s 15th since it was created.The Episcopal Church is represented by Josephine Hicks of North Carolina; the Rev. Gay Jennings of Ohio; and Bishop Ian Douglas of Connecticut.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is attending the meeting in her role as a member of the Anglican Communion Standing Committee, which met here prior to the start of the ACC meeting. Douglas is also a member of the Standing Committee.A complete list of the ACC15 participants is here.All ENS coverage of ACC15 is here.– The Rev.

It seems members are not in common strata to draw conclusive decision on the subject dispute. Every member agree with God’s reckless love for mankind started before big bang ignited and ended with permanent love by freeing all human being (inclusive) from bondage of slavery of the devil thru His Crucifixion and Resurrection. Christ’s love remain with us as long we believe in Him and work as He and His apostles commanded to do.Difference of opinion comes among members with the commands of Christ and His apostles to follow to be with Christ’s love and Christ with our love. Apostles say same sex is sin and forbidden for everybody not for a particular group of human being and it cannot be branded as non-inclusive Church practice for a particular group. It is general command for everybody. It seems all members have faith on words of God in the Bible but nobody put forward convincing evidence of God’s approval in the evolution of sexual love with same sex. Church leaders need to remember millions of people’s souls rest on their teaching in Final Judgment when sheep and goats would be separated by Christ Himself. Divided decision would produce doubt among laity and doubt opens the gate of individual heart for works of devil. Indecision is not the answer.May Christ’s love remains on Anglican Communion, and communion’s joy becomes complete obeying true commands of Christ and Apostle and remain united as Triune God is united obeying commands of God the Father.

The house is located in Miraflores, Muros, a small rural core of traditional character, formed by a set of stone houses and a large number of granaries that once housed, dried and treated the corn plantations. The house is located on a steep plot, originally was composed of two attached volumes, which respond to the traditional scheme of Galician housing where the main spaces were the stables and the kitchen: with the oven and the stone cooler, but with the passage of time a third volume is added and a series of modifications are made that distort its character. The three volumes adapt to the slope, are protected from the winds and almost close to the imposing views of the Muros estuary, giving rise to a compartmentalized interior, of small and dark spaces.Save this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezSave this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezSave this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezThe proposal is based on the understanding of the place: the scale of the rural nucleus, the pre-existing housing, the materiality of the stone, the 180º views of the estuary or the sunlight are the parameters that have been taken into account when considering the acting. The project idea seeks to highlight its identity: dignifying the preexisting and creating a fluid interior space bathed in light and directed to the views.Save this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezSave this picture!3dSave this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezThe decisions that pursue the realization of the idea go through to maintain the original stone volumes in their form, replace the third added volume, due to its scarce interest, for a new volume of concrete, in order to complete the built set. The stone facades keep their original spaces, while in the new volume there are large windows that open onto the views of the estuary, with oriented positions that reflect the use inside and dialogue with the existing. The intervention is committed to a sincere use of materials, limiting the maintenance of the stone, the introduction of exposed concrete and Zinc, which unifies the roofs. Another decision goes through the creation of three skylights of different dimensions that bathe the dining room space, the shower space and the old space of the stables, getting the light to bathe the interior stone walls.Save this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezThe interior is considered as a fluid space in which, as a journey, it travels through the different heights and rooms of the house, enjoying the unique character of each of its spaces. Playing with the scale, the visual connections and the light, it is possible to create a continuous spatial system that structures the spatial experience of the house. The wood, Galician pine, as the only material that unifies the entire interior provides the warmth and reinforces the idea of the new home: the home.Save this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezSave this picture!© Héctor Santos-DíezProject gallerySee allShow lessYijian Cafe / Golucci Interior ArchitectsSelected ProjectsStep House / Wonder ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projects Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Héctor Santos-Díez+ 37Curated by Clara Ott Share Manufacturers: Sika, Cortizo, Knauf, Mitsubishi Electric, ROCKWOOL, Uponor, Acor, VMZINC Rehabilitation of a Single-Family Home in Miraflores / fuertespenedo arquitectos “COPY” Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938499/rehabilitation-of-a-single-family-home-in-miraflores-fuertespenedo-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation•Muros, Spain fuertespenedo arquitectos Architects: fuertespenedo arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” 2018 Area: 264 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Spain Rehabilitation of a Single-Family Home in Miraflores / fuertespenedo arquitectosSave this projectSaveRehabilitation of a Single-Family Home in Miraflores / fuertespenedo arquitectos Photographs CopyAbout this officefuertespenedo arquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationWallsIcebergOn InstagramOn FacebookSpainPublished on May 18, 2021Cite: “Rehabilitation of a Single-Family Home in Miraflores / fuertespenedo arquitectos” [Rehabilitación de vivienda unifamiliar en Miraflores / fuertespenedo arquitectos] 17 May 2021.

Fidel Castro, father of the 1959 Cuban Revolution, has died, after 90 years of a life of rebellion and resistance. That this bold revolutionary figure lived as long as he did is itself a victory, for he outlived at least 11 assassination attempts launched by the CIA — 11 times that the U.S. government has admitted to!As a young man, he earned a law degree, but he never practiced; he took the revolutionary path — and began a struggle against the U.S.-supported Cuban dictator, Fulgencio Batista. That struggle, which led to the fall of Batista, inspired people all around the world.One of those inspired was the late Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the Black Panther Party, who, in a 1967 jail interview, noted: “When Fidel Castro started the Revolution, along with Che Guevara, with 12 of them altogether, they realized that they wouldn’t be able to topple the oppressive regime in Cuba. What they were essentially was an educational body. They engaged with the Army, they fought with the Army, and they showed the people that the army was not bulletproof, that the police were not bulletproof. And that Batista’s regime was not a regime that was impossible to topple, so the people began to feel their strength.”Fidel was a friend of Malcolm X, and a lifelong friend of Africa. The racist regime of apartheid South Africa got whipped in Angola, with tens of thousands of Cuban troops in the field. The notorious battle of Cuito Cuanavale, Angola, was where South Africa saw the bloody handwriting on the wall.Castro once said: “African blood flows in our veins. Many of our ancestors came as slaves from Africa to this land. As slaves they struggled quite a great deal. They fought as members of the liberating army of Cuba. We’re brothers and sisters of the people of Africa and we are ready to fight in their behalf.”Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution never bowed to the U.S. empire — not once in over half a century.The Cuban Revolution produced the finest educational system in the Caribbean and much of the world. They have sent their doctors all around the Earth.The world mourns the passing of a giant.Fidel Castro-Ruz, Comandante de la Revolución. ¡Presente!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
