first_img Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande press release] Bishop Michael L. Vono of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande has announced his plans to retire in the late fall of 2018.Vono formally notified Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on Jan. 3, seeking approval of his resignation as bishop diocesan, and permission to elect his successor in 2018. “By that time,” he wrote, “I will have served the church as deacon, priest and then bishop for a total of 42 years.” Vono announced the decision in a pastoral letter to the diocese on Jan. 4.The Standing Committee, under the leadership of its president, the Rev. Paul Moore, has begun seeking members for the search and transition committees following consultations with Judy Stark of The Episcopal Church’s pastoral development office. The election is expected to be held in late spring 2018 with the ordination and consecration in the fall 2018.Vono was elected the ninth bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande in April 2010, and was ordained and consecrated bishop at the annual Diocesan Convention in October 2010. He previously served as rector of St. Paul’s Within the Walls, Rome, Italy, for 18 years.The following was the letter distributed to the congregations within the diocese on Jan. 4.Beloved Laity and Clergy of the Diocese of the Rio Grande,The month of January opens our hearts to a time of looking towards the future and beginning a hopeful, faith-filled journey into the New Year, and as Christians we do this both “in” and “with” Christ. New visions, new dreams, new bold goals and renewed anticipations lead us forward into realizing God’s plan for each one of us. January provides a time of new beginnings.Time moves quickly. With deep and profound gratitude to each one of you and to my wonderful staff, I am entering the seventh year serving the Church of Jesus Christ as your Bishop. I thank the Lord for the great privilege of sharing these wonderful years with you. Now the time has come for us to look ahead. My heart and soul have been telling me, after forty years as a cleric, that my retiring time has come. I have properly notified the Standing Committee and my staff, as well as our Diocesan Council, of my intention to call for the election of the tenth Bishop of the Rio Grande in 2018. In due course I will formally make my request to the Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, who will inform the House of Bishops and thereby begin the process of granting consent for me to resign as Bishop Diocesan. More details will come to you in the months ahead from the President and members of the Standing Committee.There are no words that can adequately express my love for each one of you. You have been my family and truly, as the Body of Christ, we have become a dynamic spiritual family in the Diocese of the Rio Grande. For many years and into eternity, I will keep and cherish all the extraordinary memories, joy and challenges of Jesus’ ministry shared with you. God is good. God will guide us forward and provide an episcopal Shepherd who will continue to nurture and empower New Mexico and Far West Texas as a Matthew 25 Diocese.May God Bless and keep you and may the light of his countenance shine upon you this day and every New Year.

Other notable 1950 graduates

first_imgIn the 60th Anniversary Report for the Class of 1950, where alumni update classmates on the happenings in their lives, here’s a small glimpse.Robert Bly — Bly, the author of several collections of poetry, including “The Light Around the Body,” which won the National Book Award in 1967, also has authored books of nonfiction, translated the works of dozens of non-English-speaking poets, and edited countless anthologies. He has been awarded Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and currently lives on a farm in western Minnesota, where he is the state’s poet laureate.Edward Gorey — The one-time roommate of Frank O’Hara (see later entry), Gorey is most widely known for his macabre illustrations. He often wrote under pseudonyms that were anagrams of his name, notably Ogdred Weary, and illustrated works by Samuel Beckett, Charles Dickens, and T.S. Eliot, among others. He won a Tony Award in 1977 for his costume designs for “Dracula.” Gorey died in 2000, and his former Cape Cod home in Yarmouthport is now a museum called the Edward Gorey House.Henry Kissinger ’50, A.M. ’50, Ph.D. ’54 — Former national security adviser and secretary of state Kissinger is a renowned political mind still sought out by world leaders.

He died in 1966.George Plimpton — Journalist, writer, and actor Plimpton enrolled at Harvard in 1944, but graduated in 1950 after a leave for military service.

Goldman Sachs: Coal construction in Western Europe is over

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Western Europe may already have built its last coal power plant as governments everywhere crack down on greenhouse-gas pollution.That’s the view of Gonzalo Garcia, the global co-head of natural resources at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. While U.S. President Donald Trump is seeking to revive the industry, politicians across Europe are working hard to stop using the dirtiest fossil fuel.German Chancellor Angela Merkel has named a panel of lawmakers from the main political parties to consider when the nation can close its last coal plant. The U.K. has vowed to do so by 2025. And financiers, notably Standard Chartered Plc earlier this week, are getting cold feet about writing loans for new coal plants.“I personally believe that we’re not going to see a new coal plant being built in western Europe ever again,” Garcia said at a conference in Oslo on Wednesday. “It will be very challenging in most OECD countries to build new coal plants. It’s going to become increasingly expensive.”The coal plants that remain open are becoming more expensive to run. Coal for delivery in Rotterdam is approaching $100 a ton, its highest in five years, and the cost of carbon emissions allowances is near the most it’s been in a decade.“It’s going to become increasingly more controversial to keep burning coal,” Garcia said. “So there’s no question the big loser is going to be coal.”More: Goldman says Europe may have built its last coal power plant Goldman Sachs: Coal construction in Western Europe is overlast_img read more
