Jesús le dijo: No te digo hasta siete, sino aun hasta setenta veces siete”. Mateo 18:21-22.Al menos el 90 por ciento de la labor de consejería de la psicóloga Ona Graham con individuos y familias conlleva el asistir a aquellos a los que anima el resentimiento y guardan rencores… enseñarles a las personas a identificar donde guardan la ira y el odio” y buscar y extender el perdón.“La ira es una capa que nos envuelve y que nos separa de Dios. Le digo a la gente que ser rencoroso es como beber veneno y esperar que otro muera. Eso no es lo que Dios quiere para uno”, afirmó Graham, feligresa de la iglesia episcopal de San Nicolás [St. Nicholas Episcopal Church] en Hamilton, Georgia.Richard Blackburn, director ejecutivo del Centro Menonita por la Paz en Lombard con sede en [la ciudad de] Lombard, Illinois, dijo que la creciente ansiedad social repercute en las familias y las congregaciones. Pequeños malentendidos pueden convertirse aceleradamente en un conflicto eclesial crónico y afectar a las congregaciones e incluso la vida diocesana.“El perdón es fundamental si vamos a ser capaces de transcender el conflicto y concentrarnos en la misión y en el propósito que tenemos como Iglesia”, afirmó Blackburn, en una entrevista con Episcopal News Service. Él calcula que dedica aproximadamente unos 180 días al año a enseñar sobre los conflictos o a mediar en disputas con una amplia variedad de grupos religiosos, entre ellos los episcopales.“Parte de los efectos de la ansiedad crónica… es que las personas parecen cada vez menos capaces de mirarse a sí mismas y de reconocer su parte en el desarrollo del conflicto”, dijo Blackburn. “La gente se aferra a su versión de la culpa y no puede ni siquiera ver su propia parte. Esa es la clave para perdonar: todas las partes dispuestas a mirarse a sí mismas y a reconocer que dondequiera que existe un conflicto de relaciones todos tienen un papel en él”.Ayuda también, agregó, a inculcar una cultura de perdón, reconciliación y conciencia de la omnipresente gracia de Dios que a todos nos es dada.Perdonarse a sí mismo y cultivar la transformaciónHace aproximadamente cuatro décadas, Jon Bruno, el obispo de Los Ángeles, mató a un hombre de un disparó, algo que él recuerda todos los días.Antes de ser ordenado sacerdote y obispo, era agente secreto de la policía en Burbank, California, y tuvo que tomar una decisión instantánea para salvar la vida de otro policía que lo acompañaba.Un sospechoso les había comenzado a disparar, contó Bruno a ENS recientemente. “Hizo un disparo que vino a dar en el poste que estaba a mi lado”, recordaba él. “Mi compañero se levantó con una linterna en la mano y lo alumbró, lo cual no se supone que uno haga. El hombre se volvió y levantó el brazo para disparar y yo le tiré”.El sospechoso era alguien a quien había llegado a conocer durante una investigación encubierta, dijo Bruno. “Me había invitado a su casa y yo había hecho cabalgar a sus niños en mis rodillas…Le disparé con una escopeta de dos cañones y murió en el acto. Durante mucho tiempo me despertaba todas las noches soñando con lo que había ocurrido. Resultaba muy doloroso revivir eso todas las noches de mi vida”.Una investigación y la encuesta del médico forense exculpó a Bruno de cualquier delito, pero no fue hasta que buscó ayuda de un sacerdote episcopal que pudo comenzar un proceso de perdón que finalmente habría de transformarlo.“Me dio la absolución después de hacer la Reconciliación de un penitente en el Libro de Oración”, recordaba Bruno. “Yo había creído que teníamos que sufrir las razonables consecuencias de nuestras acciones. Estaba convencido de haber cometido un pecado contra Dios. En ese tiempo, pensaba, ¿qué es esto, qué me va a librar de esto? Pero esa noche volví a casa y dormí apaciblemente”.Eso condujo a la transformación. “Cambió mi actitud respecto a lo que era el perdón, que sale del corazón y de la mente así como de la presencia de lo santo, todo en paralelo al mismo tiempo, y he estado dispuesto a perdonar a la gente desde entonces”.Ahora, “siempre que oigo de un policía involucrado en un tiroteo, oro por esa gente”, agregó Bruno. “Durante años, he sido capellán del departamento de policía aquí en Los Ángeles, y trabajo con tipos que han matado a personas. Y lo que les digo es, debes perdonar a esa persona para que puedas perdonarte, porque el pecado de la ira es tan malo como el de segar una vida.“Te arranca de tu centro. No te deja ser plenamente humano, no te deja ser un verdadero seguidor de Dios”.Maryland: una tragedia que se tornó transformadora.Frank Kohn dijo que no tuvo que esforzarse para perdonar al asesino de su hermana, tan sólo recordar como ella había vivido.Su hermana, la Rda. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, co-rectora de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Episcopal Church] en Ellicott City, Maryland, fue herida de muerte en un incidente ocurrido en mayo de 2012 que tuvo amplia divulgación. También murieron [en el mismo incidente] Brenda Brewington, administradora de la parroquia, y Douglas Jones [el autor de los hechos] que volvió el arma contra sí mismo”.“Al parecer, él visitaba con frecuencia la despensa de la iglesia y nadie sabe lo que realmente sucedió porque no sobrevivieron testigos”, dijo Kohn a ENS.“Obviamente, yo no conocía a esta persona y en verdad estaba enojado con alguien que le había hecho algo así a mi familia y que había afectado mi vida de esa forma, pero estoy seguro de que no es la manera en que mi hermana se hubiera enfrentado con esto”, afirmó él. “Ella habría entendido la situación en que él estaba”.Su hermana era siete años mayor que él. Había dedicado su vida a ministrar a los marginados y a las víctimas de traumas, dijo Kohn, de 57 años, que es fitopatólogo. Cuando se produjo la agresión, él inmediatamente salió de su casa en San Luis para Baltimore donde “el apoyo de toda la parroquia y la comunidad me arroparon, y fueron extraordinarios. Como resultado he terminado haciéndome muy buen amigo de algunos de sus amigos más cercanos”.Más de un mes después del funeral, en otro viaje a Baltimore, también conoció a miembros de la familia de Jones en un momento transformacional. “Ellos alquilaban una casa contigua a la propiedad de la iglesia. Esa puede haber sido la razón de que este tipo estuviera rondando por allí. De manera que la parroquia y esta familia se conocían bien”, apuntó Kohn.“Enseguida resultaba evidente por cuánto sufrimiento estaba atravesando esta familia por lo que había sucedido”, dijo él. Ciertamente, eran víctimas y no tenían nada que ver con lo que su hermano y cuñado había hecho”.El perdón fue inmediato, contó Kohn. “Digo que yo no creo que ellos hubieran hecho algo por lo cual ser perdonados, pero resultaba obvio que era como quitarles un gran peso de encima. También tuve la oportunidad de expresarles mi condolencia y mi comprensión por lo que estaban pasando”.El Rdo. Tom Slawson, vicario de San Pedro, dijo que la iglesia renovó el lugar donde se produjo la agresión, extendiendo la capilla que ya ha sido dedicada para conmemorar allí el ministerio de Kohn.Los hechos también suscitaron “una especie de arrepentimiento colectivo” entre los miembros de la congregación que antes habían tenido algún conflicto.Eugene Sutton, el obispo de Maryland, dijo que toda la comunidad diocesana se había concentrado en cultivar el espíritu de perdón y reconciliación. “El hecho cierto es que la Iglesia anuncia constantemente que el reino ha venido con un espíritu de reconciliación, de compasión, de perdón, de justicia y de paz, y nadie más dice eso. La Iglesia es la institución que nos va a llevar allí”, recalcó Sutton.Perdón a cortos pasosSutton y otras personas dicen que la Iglesia tiene una posición privilegiada para ayudar a la sociedad a avanzar hacia el perdón, afirmó también Sutton.“La Iglesia es el único lugar que dice eso en todos los oficios eucarísticos, a quien se sienta junto a ti o tu alrededor, le deseas las bendiciones y la paz de Dios… que estoy reconciliándome contigo y debo hacerlo porque Dios me ha perdonado y no puedo acercarme a la mesa del Señor para que él me alimente si no trato de ser bueno con los que me hicieron mal.“Todos nos hemos portado mal con el Señor y él aún nos acoge”, añadió Sutton.El Rdo. Jeff Jackson, rector de la iglesia de San Nicolás [St. Nicholas] en Hamilton, cerca de Atlanta, dijo que el rito de la reconciliación es otra “forma maravillosa de enseñar el perdón”.“La Iglesia Episcopal tiene una estupenda tradición, el don que Dios le ha dado a los sacerdotes de poder escuchar [el arrepentimiento] y de pronunciar ese perdón, esa absolución, y eso nos permite oír tangiblemente las palabras que Dios de manera intangible nos dice todo el tiempo, que nos perdona y nos ama y nos restaurará”.Graham, la neuropsicóloga, ofrece una receta para aprender a perdonar:Renunciar a la venganzaRefrenarse o “dejar de pulsar el botón de respuesta”.Librarse de la iraOlvidar el dolor asociado con ella “aprender la lección que te está reservada”.“Si estás enojado con alguien”, dijo ella, “durante las próximas dos semanas pídele a Dios que le dé a esa persona todo lo que quieres en tu vida y yo te garantizo que, al cabo de las dos semanas, verás a esa persona de manera diferente.“Empezarás a ver a esa persona desde el punto de vista de Dios y entonces tendrás libertad de espíritu”.–La Rda.

Located in a predominately Federation and California Bungalow neighbourhood on the north shore, our brief for this residential alterations and additions project was to rework a badly planned existing dwelling, and previous alterations project, to create a functional house for a family of 6 with improved natural light and greater connection to the garden. After initially exploring a two level option at the client’s request, we encouraged a compact single level proposal with improved planning and a spacious cross section as the best solution within the project’s tight budgetary constraints.    Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe conceptual framework of the house has been developed around improving the quality and character of natural light in both the existing interior and as a defining element in the new addition. 5 skylights – two existing and three new – have been incorporated to shape a distinct cross section that allows natural light and a connection to the sky from within the deep internalized footprint of the existing house, while shaping a generous and spacious cross section in the new addition.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsWorking in tandem with the more generous cross section of the new addition, the internal planning has been modified to create a more compact floor plan for the whole house. A carefully inserted central core containing a new bathroom and laundry has reframed the existing internal plan to reduce excessive corridors and create a more direct connection between the existing entry and living rooms, and the new addition. The new internal walls of the addition have been designed as thickened storage walls, moderating the need for more space by providing ample room for storage for the large family.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!ModelThe skylights and shaped section has also determined the material character of the house. The section creates a play between an abstract, white, sculptured ceiling line and bulkhead datum,   which washes light on the more robust natural finishes used below the ceiling and bulkhead datum. The major structural walls are recycled face brick re-used from the existing house’s demolished rear walls and external laundry and bathroom. All joinery below the ceiling line datum is American oak, while the floor is concrete with underfloor heating. Internally this creates a clear palette of abstract lightness above, while all materials within touching distance of the occupants are robust, easily maintained natural materials.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsExternally, the roof edge and brick edge of the side walls defining the key vertical and horizontal rear lines of the façade are cut to a common dimension of 50mm, giving a lightness to the bounding frame of the rear façade. Within this outline, timber walls and windows are integrated to be a common material finish that creates the perception of a separate building element within this long rear façade. Sliding screens allowing variability to the façade according to sun control and privacy needs. The roof form, while housing a complex interior section, creates a simple and modest outline for the rear addition that sits comfortably with the federation and California Bungalow neighbouring dwellings.  Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe Skylight House addressed social and environmental sustainability by attempting to create significant improvements in the environmental amenity and performance of an existing 1940’s building, while also making a series of material choices to limit waste.

Located on the quayside of the Munksjön lake, these two urban housing blocks are based on a long term strategy of sustainability, creating attractive housing on one of the best sites in central Jönköping. Rather than a row of standard housing slabs, the requested number of apartments was assembled into two large units.

Study: RFS Has Slashed GHG Emissions by Nearly a Billion Metric…

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 12, 2021 Previous articleThe Hoosier Ag Today Podcast for February 12, 2021Next articleHAT Market Analysis for 2/12/21 with Bob Utterback Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Study: RFS Has Slashed GHG Emissions by Nearly a Billion Metric Tons… A new analysis from a renowned carbon accounting firm finds that the greenhouse gas emission reductions achieved under the Renewable Fuel Standard far exceed the reductions originally projected by EPA. Between 2008 and 2020, the use of biofuels under the RFS has resulted in cumulative savings of 980 million metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions.The research, which updates the results from a previously published study, was conducted for the Renewable Fuels Association by Stefan Unnasch and Debasish Parida of Life Cycle Associates.The greater-than-expected GHG savings are attributable to several factors: corn ethanol provided larger GHG reductions than anticipated by EPA; the actual carbon intensity of gasoline and diesel was worse than estimated by EPA; and use of biodiesel and renewable diesel exceeded EPA’s original expectations.“The Renewable Fuel Standard has been the single most effective and efficient policy we’ve ever had for decarbonizing our nation’s transportation fuels,” said RFA President and CEO Geoff Cooper. “This research clearly demonstrates that the RFS has already put us firmly on the path toward net-zero GHG emissions by mid-century, and the program will continue to serve as the bedrock for future efforts to combat climate change. The RFS has overachieved its original expectations, and renewable fuel producers and farmers across the country should be extremely proud of their important role in securing 1 billion metric tons of carbon reduction.”According to the report, the carbon intensity of corn-based ethanol used toward the RFS is now 45% below the carbon intensity of gasoline, having dropped 20% between 2008 and 2020. The authors attribute ethanol’s shrinking carbon footprint primarily to improvements in the corn ethanol production process, growth in the use of low-carbon biogas as the process fuel, and the elimination of coal as a thermal energy source for dry mill ethanol plants.Cooper noted that the Life Cycle Associates study is consistent with recently released research from Environmental Health & Engineering Inc., which showed that GHG emissions for ethanol are 32% to 62% lower than gasoline, with a central best estimate of 46%. In addition, the assessment showed that carbon emissions from converting prior land uses to corn farming make up only 7% of the biofuel’s total GHG emissions—a much smaller amount than generally recognized.Source: Renewable Fuels Association release SHARE Study: RFS Has Slashed GHG Emissions by Nearly a Billion Metric Tons to Datelast_img read more

But the spring was short-lived and arbitrary arrests soon resumed under the new regime”, Reporters Without Borders said. March 8, 2021 Find out more Two journalists and eight other pro-democracy activists who signed the Damascus Declaration, an appeal for “radical democratic change,” were brought before a judge in Damascus yesterday, six weeks after the start of a wave of arrests, and were formally charged with attacking the prestige of the state, publishing false information, membership of a secret organisation aimed at destabilising the state and fuelling ethnic and racial tension.“Bashar al-Assad led people to believe that a page had been turned when he became president in June 2000,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He spoke of his desire to modernise the state and actively combat corruption. Several political activists and journalists felt sufficiently confident to call for an end to the state of emergency and a return to the rule of law. But the spring was short-lived and arbitrary arrests soon resumed under the new regime. The Damascus Declaration’s signatories are the latest victims.”Those who appeared in court yesterday were Fida’a Al-Horani, president of the executive bureau of the National Council of the Damascus Declaration, Akram Al-Bunni, its general secretary, Ahmad To’meh, Jaber Al-Shufi, Mohammed Darwish, Marwan Al-Aashi, Walid Bunni, Mohammad Yasser Al-Iti and journalists Fayez Sara and Ali Abdallah.After being formally notified of the charges under articles 285, 286, 306 and 307 of the criminal code, for which they face between three and 15 years in prison, they were questioned for about four hours by the investigating judge. Khalil Maatuk, one of the defence lawyers, said they denied all the charges.“They tried to convince the judge of the peaceful and patriotic nature of their initiative, which aspires to bring about democratic change without any foreign influence,” Maatuk said.The judge ordered pre-trial detention. They were all transferred to Adra prison (in a Damascus suburb), except Horani, who was taken to Duma women’s prison.On the same subject:4.01.2008 – Journalist who signed Damascus Declaration held incommunicado 18.12.07 – Journalist Ali Abdallah back in prison News Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Receive email alertslast_img read more
