Turning the other cheek to threat of Islamic terrorists is not the answer. We have to be forceful like Christ Who drove out all who were buying and selling at His father’s temple courts in Jerusalem by overturning tables, benches.This is the world created by Word of God (Jesus Christ) and it is our duty to maintain harmony for all creatures big and small, rich and poor, live peacefully, if necessary by force. Only God will judge who followed His commandments at the end of the world, not followers of any book. Unitedly we could bring dark force into light. May Almighty God protect us from devils’ claw like beheading a co-worker in Oklahoma City not converting into Islam!

We will not thus be able to deal with a global, holistic danger if the only weapons we are capable of using are military and administrative, and if we only focus on one place.“As the noble Lord, the Leader of the Opposition, set out so clearly, we do need to take this action now. But it is also necessary, over time, that any response to ISIL and to this global danger be undertaken on an ideological and religious basis that sets out a more compelling vision, a greater challenge and a more remarkable hope than that offered by ISIL. We must face the fact that for some young Muslims the attractions of jihadism outweigh the materialism of a consumer society.“As the noble Lord, Lord Alderdice implied, if we struggle against a call to eternal values, however twisted and perverted they may be, without a better story, we will fail in the long term. The vision we need to draw on is life-giving. It is rooted in the truths of the Judaeo-Christian tradition, relying heavily in the Middle Ages on the wealth of Islamic learning, the Abrahamic faiths – not necessarily enemies – and enriched by others such as Hinduism and Sikhism in recent generations. Religious leaders must up their game and the church is playing its part. It is the role of the church I serve to point beyond our imperfect responses and any material, national or political interest to the message of Jesus Christ and the justice, healing and redemption that he offers.“But in the here and now, there is justification for the use of armed force on humanitarian grounds, to enable oppressed victims to find safe space. ISIL – and for that matter Boko Haram and others – have as their strategy to change the facts on the ground so as to render completely absurd any chance of helping the targets of their cruelty.“It is clear from talking this week with Christian and other leaders across the region that they want support. The solidarity in the region is added to by the important statement from the Grand Imam of al-Azhar on Wednesday.“The action proposed today is right, but we must not rely on a short-term solution on a narrow front to a global, ideological, religious, holistic and trans-generational challenge. We must demonstrate that there is a positive vision far greater and more compelling than the evil of ISIL and its global clones. Such a vision offers us and the world hope, an assurance of success in this struggle, not the endless threat of darkness.” The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Belleville, IL Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Comments (2) Rector Martinsville, VA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Submit a Job Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Hopkinsville, KY Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit a Press Release Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Shreveport, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Featured Events Rector Tampa, FL New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Submit an Event Listing Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Bath, NC Rector Smithfield, NC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Press Release Service This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Tagslast_img read more

Tumbleweed quadruples production at Ladder Creek helium plant

first_img Tumbleweed Midstream’s Ladder Creek Helium Plant in eastern Colorado, (Credit: Tumbleweed Midstream.) Tumbleweed Midstream has secured three new long-term gathering and processing agreements that have quadrupled production at its Ladder Creek helium plant in the US.Located near Cheyenne Wells, Colorado, just west of the Kansas-Colorado border, the Ladder Creek helium plant and gathering system serves natural gas producers operating in eastern Colorado and western Kansas.According to Tumbleweed, the two of the new agreements have more than doubled the plant’s inlet volume to 12 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMcf/d).The third contract is estimated to increase the production further 3 to 5 MMcf/d over the next 90 days.Additionally, the increased output from the three agreements is expected to increase the daily helium output of the plant to over 200,000 cubic feet per day (200 Mcf/d,) or around 65 million cubic feet (65 MMcf) per year.Tumbleweed founder and CEO Durell Johnson said: “Helium is a highly valuable part of the natural gas stream in eastern Colorado and western Kansas, and Tumbleweed is pleased to return premium netbacks to the gas producers in the region.“Despite the recent downturns in oil and natural gas pricing, helium demand remains strong and consistent.”Ladder Creek cryogenic processing plant is capable of processing 40 MMcf/dAt present, the Ladder Creek cryogenic processing plant is capable of processing 40 MMcf/d, expandable to 50 MMcf/d.The plant uses cryogenic processes to extract helium and natural gas liquids from raw natural gas.Furthermore, Tumbleweed said that it will explore plant expansions as demand warrants.Tumbleweed is an independent natural gas gathering and processing company that focuses primarily on the separation and production of liquefied helium, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and residue.In January this year, Tumbleweed announced the acquisition of the Ladder Creek helium plant and gathering system from DCP Midstream for an undisclosed amount.

Oakdale up for sale as it calls in administrators

first_imgLeeds-based malt loaf specialist Oakdale Bakeries called in administrators KPMG Restructuring on January 26.The company, which turned over £30m last year, blamed trading losses and a competitive environment for the decision.Richard Fleming, joint administrator and restructuring partner at KPMG’s Leeds office, said: “The business has encountered difficulties as it has been making trading losses in the highly competitive environment of the food production sector. However, we are looking to continue to trade the business with a view to selling it as a going concern.”He said administrators are keen to hear from any parties interested in buying the business.Oakdale employs a total of 350 staff across three sites in Doncaster, Morley and Wigan. It produces cakes, fruit pies, malt loaves and pies as own-label products for a number of supermarkets and retailers across the UK.Oakdale parted company with its chief executive Des Kingsley six months ago. He had led it through a management buy-out in July 2004 from Oakdale’s founder Marshall Capel. Andy Deutsch from the Thomas Food Partnership had been due to take over before the company went into administration.last_img read more

Argument between GOP, Democratic lawmakers regarding South Bend Schools spills into hall

first_img Facebook IndianaLocalNews Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Google+ Facebook Argument between GOP, Democratic lawmakers regarding South Bend Schools spills into hall Pinterest (“Indiana State Capitol Building” by Drew Tarvin, CC BY 2.0) Debate about whether a bill that allows a mostly white township in St. Joseph County to leave the South Bend Community School District is discriminatory, spilled over into the hallway at Government Center, Thursday.News 8’s David Williams witnessed the incident and reported that Rep. Vanessa Summers (D-Indianapolis) was part of a small group of representatives who left the floor and went into the hallway when hissing and cat calls could be heard during Rep. Vernon Smith’s (D-Gary), floor speech about his experience as a Black man.“Rep. Eberhart (Sean Eberhart, a Republican from Shelbyville) got upset. He thought I was talking directly to him. I was not. Then he called me a bitch,” said Summers. She said she was upset that it was tough for a Black representative to talk about the Black experience on the House floor.Eberhart denied using derogatory language or behaving aggressively.“That was extreme and disappointing and a reflection of where we are as a country,” said Rep. Maureen Bauer (D-South Bend). She said it’s also part of a problem with Democrats and Republicans in the General Assembly.“It also reflects ten years of being in a super majority. That people don’t understand that some members of that caucus don’t have a voice. I just found it interesting that right before that happened we were discussing a bill on civics education.”Rep. Robin Shackleford (D-Indi8anapolis), chair of the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus, said she believes the behavior on the floor was unprofessional.“My reaction is just total unprofessionalism on the Republican side. We all are going to disagree about matters. We sit over on the Democrat side and listen to them day in and day out talk about issues that affect our constituents. But, you don’t see us being unprofessional. You don’t see us sighing, saying things, booing people. So, something has to be done from leadership to make sure things don’t progress. Unfortunately, it wasn’t and so things did progress,” she told News 8.House Speaker Todd Houston called for civility.“We need to let people offer, be passionate, be responsible, in their debate. We also have to make sure we don’t impugn motives, that we are speaking on the bill and what the bill says, and not what we might think the author or the policy underlying meaning is.”Shackleford has asked for a joint meeting between House leadership and the Black Caucus.
