Anglicans urge prayers for Ethiopian tribal conflict

first_img [Anglican Communion News Service] Anglicans in Ethiopia are asking for prayers following an increase in tribal tensions between the Nuer and Anyuak ethnic groups. Local Anglicans have acted as human shields by escorting students from one tribe through the territory of the other, with the support of the security services.A statement from the Diocese of Egypt with the North of Africa and the Horn of Africa says that lives have been lost in recent days and that the situation continues to be tense; but they say the government remains in control.“Tribal tension has flared up . . . after a pregnant woman from one tribe, who was beaten by thugs from another tribe, died last night,” the diocese said on its website. “A bomb exploded after security personal discovered it being carried by a student at a local college. As far as we know, no one was injured in that attack, but subsequent clashes have definitely resulted in loss of life.”The diocese stresses that it is “not sure about all the facts” and that they “have heard many stories from both sides of the conflict. This much we do know – there are many who are mourning today.”The Sudan Tribune newspaper reports that dozens of people have been killed on both sides and many more wounded in the dispute between the Nuer and Anyuak ethnic groups. The newspaper reports that the two groups have been living peacefully for many years, and that the cause of the current tensions remains unclear.In their request for prayer, the diocese says: “We had to escort our students from one tribe through the other tribe’s territory together with members of the local security forces traveling behind our vehicle. They are all safe. Pray that this action will not be misinterpreted as taking sides.”The diocese is asking people to “pray against any desire for retaliation from both sides” and say that, at present, “all is quiet and everything appears to be under control.” TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Knoxville, TN Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Anglicans urge prayers for Ethiopian tribal conflict Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Anglican Communion Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Press Release Service Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 By ACNS staffPosted Feb 3, 2016 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Featured Jobs & Calls Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Albany, NY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Submit a Job Listing Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Collierville, TN The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit a Press Releasecenter_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Belleville, IL Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Youth Minister Lorton, VA Africa, An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Tags Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Featured Events Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL Submit an Event Listing Rector Smithfield, NC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Mortgage problem won’t go away – Dr Kinsella

first_imgEmail ECONOMIST Dr Stephen Kinsella of University of Limerick, has warns that the mortgage problem won’t go away, because we do not have an effective debt resolution system.“People are individually confronting the problem, unfortunately, the court doesn’t seem to be able to come up with a reasonable solution.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Advertisement WhatsApp “One of the biggest problems we have is that we don’t have a debt resolution system”.The economist feels that we need to see a change in Irish bankruptcy laws.“It seems to me to be a no brainer. We need to bring it in line with International best practice.“Now we are seeing businessmen flying to the UK to become bankrupt. If someone is bankrupt in one member state, it covers the entire EU”.He believes that if there is another increase in interest rates, more people will slip into arrears.“Mortgage holders are under huge strain and the banks don’t feel like being forthcoming or co-operating.“As interest rates rise in the coming year, more people will be driven into arrears.“There are 44,000 people in arrears and what we’re seeing now from the regulators figures is people moving from interest only, to arrears, to eventual default.“The banks have the Irish borrower underneath their boot and there is no real reason for them to change that’.He is economics adviser to the New Beginning group, a representative group defending mortgage holders.“There has been an overwhelming response, we are receiving hundreds and hundreds of calls.“They are down at the Four Courts everyday providing a really good service. There are very few moments in your life where you are as vulnerable as you are when you face losing your home”.Dr Kinsella described the banks as “very bust” and said that the biggest problem is the time horizon.“Children born now are still going to be dealing with this mess in 15 to 20 years.“For now we need to focus on Europe and hope that debt levels are addressed”.
