Joyous celebration of Frances Perkins’ feast day from Maine to D.C. Featured Events Director of Music Morristown, NJ Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Youth Minister Lorton, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI May 14, 2014 at 10:17 pm Thanks be to God for this woman, her icon and this story, which fills in many blanks left by secular accounts of her career. The Episcopal Church of today is largely Frances Perkins’ church in spirit; socially liberal, theologically conservative in the best sense. I doubt there’s a current discussion she couldn’t contribute to. And how wonderful to have her grandson and others who knew her present for this celebration. Thank you, Christiana Adams and ENS.

As she once wrote, “Social justice is part of the implication of loving your neighbor.”“Frances Perkins’ work as secretary of labor in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s cabinet and her many other accomplishments,” says the Reverend Lu-Anne Conner, Rector of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Newcastle, “are living reminders that faith combined with perseverance can accomplish great things. I believe that her legacy and her call to us today would be to acknowledge and use our God-given gifts – whatever they may be – to serve Christ by serving others.“In the Episcopal Church, icons help us to see into the heart of God. They are reminders of the living presence of the Holy Spirit – both through the person represented and in our own lives. We are grateful for the gift of the icon of Frances Perkins, who worshiped at St. Andrew’s for 60 years. We hope that it will help both St. Andrew’s and the broader community to see and understand what God can do through ordinary, everyday people.”The Reverend Amelia Hagen of Damariscotta, who is a parishioner at St. Andrew’s and is making this gift, agrees. Long fascinated by Frances Perkins’ remarkable life as both “ordinary woman” and “Holy Woman,” the Reverend Ms. Hagen explains, “It seems as if I’ve always had a connection with her. Before I was ordained, I worked in the field of industrial health and protection as of course she also did.” The horrifying tragedy of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City in which 146 garment workers perished created an even deeper bond. Frances Perkins was an eyewitness: “The Triangle factory fire inspired Frances Perkins to take on the cause of worker protection and safety. This connected me to her on a very personal level. My grandmother worked in the [textile] mills.”Hagen continues, “When I was participating in an iconography workshop in 2013, iconographer Suzanne Schleck and I were talking about Frances Perkins. We had both been thinking of an icon. We decided it was time for Frances Perkins to be recognized.”Ms. Schleck then created the icon and the Reverend Ms. Hagen purchased it as a gift for St. Andrew’s. “Our hope is that when people look at the icon closely, they will find relevance for our times. As the woman who brought us Social Security and other social programs, she would have a lot to say about the working poor today.” Hagen concludes, “Perhaps when people reflect upon the icon, they will understand in a new way that we really need to work to build up our safety nets again. And that in Christ’s Kingdom all are invited to the table and our job is to make that happen now.” Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL May 15, 2014 at 9:57 am John, you can contact me at the above e-mail.

In our dynamic changing society, my focus became adjusted accordingly with more immediate concerns, goals …Nevertheless Thank you so much St. Andrews and the Perkins Family, Please know how greatly so many of us throughout American greatlly appreciate the leadership of President Franklin Roosevelt and his compassionate transformative vision for America in appointing Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins and his international diplomacy for peace and humanitarian outreach(Marshall Plan, etc.) despite all his personal handicaps and political obstacles. The new Frances Perkins icon, written by Iconographer Suzanne Schleck, is displayed May 13 on the altar at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Newcastle, Maine. Photo: Heidi Shott[Episcopal News Service] In her many different roles as public servant but especially as secretary of labor in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s cabinet, Frances Perkins exemplified these words, working steadfastly and ceaselessly to ensure that the poor and needy in our land “be maintained in health and decency.”“Like Jesus who fed the multitudes rather than turning them away,” the Rev. Lu-Anne Conner of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Newcastle, Maine said, “when Frances Perkins saw the breadlines during the Great Depression, she understood that her work was to ‘go and do likewise.’” And she did – by helping to create Social Security, secure a minimum wage, shorten the work day and end child labor.“Celebrating the [May 13] feast day of Frances Perkins,” said Conner, “is particularly meaningful at St. Andrew’s because Frances Perkins worshiped here for 60 years.“This year our celebration was made even more memorable by the dedication of an icon, a gift of the Rev. Amelia Hagen,”added Perkins’ grandson, Tomlin Coggeshall, who is a St. Andrew’s parishioner and lives at The Brick House in Newcastle – the family home where his grandmother spent so much time.“My grandmother would be both thrilled and humbled. The icon is absolutely beautiful. I feel that my grandmother’s persona will inhabit it more and more over time.”Frances Perkins Center Executive Director Michael Chaney, who attended the dedication, said: “The Frances Perkins icon is a moving image that reminds us of how she placed her secular work in the context of working for God and for the greater good of all people.”In 1905 Frances Perkins joined the Episcopal Church. For the next 60 years, she derived inspiration, solace, and courage from worship and contemplation to carry out her work and to face her personal struggles. During regular weekend retreats at the All Saints Convent in Catonsville, Maryland, she “spent hours pondering spiritual issues and how to lead a godly life in a secular world…. The nuns found her in the early morning hours in the chapel, praying on her hands and knees for guidance,” according to Kirsten Downey in her book about Perkins, The Woman Behind the New Deal. In Washington, she often attended early morning services during the week at the Parish of Saint James (now Saint Monica and Saint James).Icons as invitation to contemplation and actionUpon seen the Perkins icon for the first time, Heidi Shott, canon for communications and social justice for the Diocese in Maine, said it “gave me tender pause. This beautifully written icon is a tangible object to remind me of what is possible when we use our gifts for God.”And that is exactly what their purpose is, according to iconographer Suzanne Schleck, who wrote the icon.“Icons,” said Schleck, “are an invitation to enter into relationship with God.”Creating them involves artistry and inspiration. The process allows the “icons to come through our hands. As layer upon layer of light is added, a face emerges from the darkness. In both form and content an icon is a parable of hope, and faith in the redeeming love of our God,” Schleck wrote on her website.Creating the icon of Frances Perkins, Schleck found inspiration in the fact that Perkins “put her beliefs and faith into action so effectively.”“Taking care of others,” said Schleck, “is her message to us. when I look at it, it makes me laugh! Yes! It’s possible. You can live that way!”The Rev. Amelia Hagen, right, gives the Frances Perkins icon to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Newcastle, Maine. The Rev. Lu-Anne Conner, St. Andrew’s rector, and Tomlin Coggeshall, Perkins’ grandson, accept the gift. Photo: Heidi ShottBiographer Downey said “It is fitting that Frances Perkins has been immortalized in an icon. She was a profoundly spiritual woman who constantly sought God’s guidance to help give every person in America, as she said, ‘the best possible life.’”The Rev. Charles Hoffacker, a member of the Frances Perkins Center board of directors, commented that “it’s great to see an inspiring icon of this twentieth century saint.”“Her apparel in the icon recalls what she characteristically wore, including her famous hat. The scroll features words with which she described her mission as United States labor secretary and as a Christian called to public service at a time of national crisis.“Saints are reminders to us of how the reign of God is manifest in many times and places. A saint from our society, who lived not so long ago, is a challenge for us to realize God’s mercy is among us now and we are to live in accord with that mercy.”A personal glimpseChristopher Breiseth knew Frances Perkins well. They met when she was a visiting professor at Cornell University and a grandmother.Breiseth, who chairs the Frances Perkins Center board of directors, was a graduate student and president of the Telluride House at Cornell.He and his housemates invited Perkins to live with them at Telluride. Perkins gladly accepted, remarking to friends, “Do you know what those boys have done? I feel like a bride on her wedding night!” Breiseth said here.Breiseth added that Perkins treated everyone with respect, even very tough political and labor leaders. There was an inner confidence combined with humility that reduced barriers, he said. She did not wear her spirituality on her sleeve but one knew in watching her day after day how profoundly religious she was.The celebration of Perkins’ feast day continued down the East Coast on the route she so often traveled by train from Maine to Washington. Speaking at the Episcopal Chaplaincy Mass at Princeton University Chapel, Donn Mitchell, author of “Frances Perkins: Architect of a Gracious Society”, remarked, “The icon signals that the work and witness of Frances Perkins continues to bless us. I hope that it will also inspire us to emulate her steadfast love of the community.”In Washington, D.C., Tomlin Coggeshall delivered the homily at an evening service on May 13 at the Parish of Saint Monica and Saint James, where his grandmother worshiped when in Washington.Coggeshall also met with Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. A portrait of Perkins hangs behind Secretary Perez’s desk. She is, he told Coggeshall, a “gold standard for labor secretaries.”“Her portrait hangs over my desk, so that every day I can be inspired by the example she set and the legacy she left for the department,” Perez said in a statement later released by his office. “She is one of the most extraordinary women in American history, and a guiding light for us as we work to expand opportunity for all.”— Christiana Adams, a parishioner at St. Andrew’s, is a communications consultant and ed May 15, 2014 at 10:39 am Good morning.

Facebook Twitter Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 13, 2018 Previous articleAFBF Confident Farm Bill Gets Done in Lame Duck SessionNext articleAFBF Confident Farm Bill Gets Done in Lame Duck Session and Downed Corn Slows Harvest on the HAT Tuesday Morning Edition Andy Eubank Home News Feed Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 13, 2018 SHARE Light snow will be moving away this morning, but we are increasing our snow potential for later this week. Overnight we saw snow fall, and as it moves away today, by midday we should see amounts ultimately totaling a coating to an inch. That is it. In fact, the best precipitation is already behind us this morning. We can see clouds break for some sun later this afternoon, although temps remain chilly. We stay dry tomorrow as well and see some decent sun before clouds start to build again.On Thursday, we are going to have to ramp up our precipitation forecast and coverage area. We had been hoping to see the low-pressure center stay south, and keep heavier precipitation at bay. Well, we are looking for liquid equivalent precipitation totals to be about the same as our forecast 24 hours ago, but the coverage is expanding greatly, and a second wave out of this system will drag some of those heavier moisture totals farther north. Snow starts south of US 50 already Thursday morning, and by early afternoon will have spread to nearly 90% of the state. Snow will continue through the evening and overnight and should be done by Friday morning. Liquid equivalent precipitation totals will be from a few hundredths to .6”, with the heaviest near the river. However, some of the better snows can also be in central to northern Indiana, from the I-70 corridor up to Kokomo. Right now, we will project a coating to 3 inches as a general snow blanket over 70% of the state. The map at right shows potential snowfall for the Thursday-Friday period. We think the 4 inch totals are a little overzealous, particularly in southern Indiana…but all it takes is a small shift south in cold air, and it becomes a reality very quickly.We should be dry in all areas Friday. On Saturday, we are still watching a little clipper system trying to race across the corn belt near the I-80 corridor, but we are not as concerned about significant precipitation out of it. We won’t rule out a few flurries Saturday morning and midday over the northern third of the state, but think precipitation is less likely. We still think areas from US 24 southward see nothing. Partly to mostly sunny skies emerge for Sunday, but we do have the potential for some lake effect snow in NW Indiana, from Hammond across to Michigan City, and then south through Newton, Jasper, Stark and Pulaski counties.We are dry Monday through Thursday of next week. Clouds may begin to increase for Thanksgiving afternoon, but we are not completely sold on any precipitation threats. We are watching thanksgiving night closely. Friday still looks mostly dry.Rains are in for the 24th through the 26th. And yes, we are talking rain. Temps will climb the second half of the week next week and will easily be warm enough for rain. Totals can be half to 2”, which will be way more than we need in any area. However, be thankful that we are talking rain, with that kind of available moisture around!!! We turn dry and colder again behind that 3-day system for the 27th and 28th.In the extended period, we are going a little drier now. Thanksgiving should be dry, but we see 1 system for the 11-16 day window, moving through for the 24th and 25th. Rain totals can be from half to 1” and yes, we are talking rain at this time. WE see good south winds developing next Wednesday into Thursday right at the end of the 10-day period. This will bring a warmer flow pattern in and allow us to see temps about 5-7 degrees above normal. That promoted the late November rain. By Andy Eubank – Nov 12, 2018 SHARE Facebook Twitter

We urge the Turkish government to reform its criminal code so that press offences are no longer punishable by prison sentences,” said Reporters Without Borders.Bekdil could face a full jail term if he repeats the offence between now and July 2007.His lawyer has decided to appeal against the verdict to the European Court of Human Rights.

Atlanta architect Amy Stankus has spent years creating beautiful buildings, but lately she’s turned her sights to some smaller — albeit more delicious — creations. Her Atlanta-based chocolate shop won the grand prize of the 2013 Flavor of Georgia Food Product Contest. Chocolate South’s Peach Tea Bonbons were one of 24 products sampled and judged by a panel of food brokers, buyers and other food industry experts. In addition to winning the overall grand prize, Chocolate South took home first place in the competition’s confections category. Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black and Gov. Nathan Deal were on hand to announce the winners on March 12 as part of Georgia Agriculture Awareness Day at the Georgia Freight Depot in downtown Atlanta. “The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the state of Georgia,” Black said at the awards ceremony. “If you don’t believe that than you should see what these outstanding business people are bringing to the table.” The annual contest, conducted by the University of Georgia Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, is a chance for food businesses to showcase new products. “We had so many great contestants this year,” said Sharon P. Kane, Flavor of Georgia contest coordinator. “It really highlighted the high caliber of the food products created by Georgians.” Peach Tea Bonbons win over judgesA licensed architect specializing in medical buildings and avid “I Love Lucy” fan, Stankus started making her hand-crafted chocolates in her home kitchen for friends before launching an online shop. She opened the Chocolate South chocolate shop on Marietta Street in Atlanta in June 2012. “I love talking to people about chocolate,” Stankus said. “I love sharing good chocolate with people … I hope (being in the Flavor of Georgia Contest) showcases some interesting flavor combinations with chocolate. We have great products here in Georgia to pair with chocolate.” Peach Tea Bonbon features a ganache infused with the flavor of Georgia Peaches Tea, created by Atlanta-based small-batch tea maven Brandi Shelton. The tea was also a finalist in this year’s contest. Flavor of Georgia is a boon for food entrepreneurs and grocery merchants alikeFood industry experts — including chefs, grocery buyers, food service personnel and agricultural marketing executives — rated the contest’s products based on qualities like innovation, use of Georgia theme, market potential and flavor, said James Daniels, a UGA CAED food business development specialist. Showcase events like the Flavor of Georgia competition help entrepreneurs get the word out about their products. Many have landed spots in regional and national grocery chains, like Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Harvey’s and Piggly Wiggly, after the contest. Other category winners were: People’s Choice: Georgia Buffalo, Inc.; Georgia Buffalo N.Y. Strip Steak; Troy Biven; Townsend, Ga.

Winners and finalists earn the right to have their products stamped with the 2013 Flavor of Georgia logo. Flavor of Georgia is only a starting point for many of the category winners, Kane said. Kane followed up with the 2011 winners and found that between 70 and 80 percent experienced increased interest in their products, sales and business contacts as a result of the contest. This contest is sponsored by the UGA CAES Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development in partnership with the Center of Innovation for Agribusiness, Office of Governor Nathan Deal, Walton EMC, the Georgia Department of Agriculture, the Georgia Agribusiness Council and the UGA Department of Food Science and Technology.
Sale of Blackjewel’s Wyoming mines in serious trouble FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Casper Star Tribune:Bankrupt coal operator Blackjewel called the sale of its two idling Wyoming coal mines “dead,” according to a statement made by a key creditor in court documents Tuesday.The announcement casts another layer of doubt over the chance Campbell County’s Eagle Butte and Belle Ayr coal mines — the nation’s fourth and sixth largest by production — will reopen in the foreseeable future.Blackjewel filed a motion Thursday to separate the sale of its two Wyoming coal mines to coal company Contura Energy from the sale of its Pax Surface Mine in West Virginia to the same company. But in response to the motion, Riverstone Credit Partners, a senior creditor owed millions of dollars, said the company’s motion to revise the sale terms violated the original settlement reached with lenders.Although a federal bankruptcy judge approved the sale of three Blackjewel mines to Contura on Aug. 7, the deal has not been finalized. The sale hinges on the final approval of the federal government, after it objected to outstanding royalties and leasing terms of the Wyoming mines.What’s more, the sale may be held up over “Contura’s insistence on shortening the existing mine plans at the western mines,” Tuesday’s court document’s revealed.More: Blackjewel says sale of Wyoming mines is ‘dead,’ according to creditor
