Britain’s economy is expected to have grown by 0.4 per cent in the third-quarter, a decent rate of expansion, albeit one substantially lower than the boom-style 1.2 per cent seen in the second quarter. But any deviation from the consensus expectation – either downwards or upwards – is likely to be hailed by critics or supporters of the government’s policies as vindication of their own views. This reaction will come despite widespread warnings in the City that it would be a mistake to read too much into early statistical releases, which are often revised.Independent economists remain deeply divided about the prospects for 2011, on whether more QE will be needed and on whether the comprehensive spending review will be expansionary or contractionary. Some bearish economists, such as Capital Economics, are warning that the pace of GDP growth in 2011 is likely to fall short of the government’s expectations. Howard Archer, IHS Global Insight’s economist, this weekend downgraded his 2011 growth forecast to just 1.5 per cent, below the 2.25 per cent predicted by the Office for Budget Responsibility. Archer said. “Our forecasts suggest the government will struggle to achieve its fiscal targets unless further corrective action is eventually taken.” The London School of Economics’ Nobel Prize-winner Christopher Pissarides repeated his warnings at the weekend that the cuts could exacerbate high unemployment and low job vacancies.Others, however, remain significantly more bullish. In a note out this weekend, Michael Saunders of Citigroup said: “We do not expect fiscal consolidation to derail the recovery, given the low pound, low interest rates, plus prospects for a pickup in corporate investment and employment. Growth will not be spectacular, but should be sustained. Extra QE is an option, but we doubt it will be needed to underpin recovery.”Saunders’ latest growth forecasts show UK GDP going up 1.5 per cent this year and 2-2.5 per cent in both 2011 and 2012.

Act for God’s dream, Presiding Bishop tells convention Eucharist

first_img Rector Tampa, FL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service — Indianapolis] At the midpoint of General Convention, thousands gathered at the J.W. Marriott Hotel here for the July 8 Festival Eucharist and United Thank Offering Ingathering.A choir of several hundred voices, drawn from congregations of the Diocese of Indianapolis, along with organ and brass choir, performed anthems as the congregation gathered. Bishops, UTO representatives and international and ecumenical guests entered the vast and crowded ballroom to the hymn “Christ is made the sure foundation,” with a tune by 17th-century composer Henry Purcell. Other music was by early 20th-century English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams and 21st-century composers Joel Martinson of Dallas, Craig Phillips of Los Angeles and Frank Boles of St. Paul’s Church, Indianapolis.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached a message focusing on unity in diversity, mission and a call to action.“A prophet is simply somebody sent to speak for God, to tell it like it really is. Sometimes prophets speak words of comfort and strength … and sometimes the prophet speaks words that are harder to hear, reminding us that we’re supposed to love God … and love our neighbors as ourselves, said Jefferts Schori. “Words matter profoundly, and as Christians we affirm that every time we gather to give thanks for the frontier crossing incarnate Word in our midst.”Prophets speak and act for God, with spoken and incarnate words of strength, hope, and challenge, said the presiding bishop, adding that that ministry comes in many forms. “Today we’re going to give thanks for the prophetic work of the United Thank Offering, reaching out in creative possibility around the globe.”Calling everyone to act on their faith, Jefferts Schori said: “When Jesus lays on hands and heals a few, even in a place that doesn’t think he’s got much to offer, he’s doing something prophetic … What about your hands? They, too, are instruments of healing, reconciling, re-creation – let’s see those hands!”Jefferts Schori drew a parallel between the mission entrusted by Jesus to the Apostles and God’s mission today. “When Jesus goes off to other villages to teach, he is using words and hands in prophetic ways, announcing the reign of God close at hand, feeding, healing and drawing people into community,” she said. The “five marks of mission are the work and mark of prophets, of all Jesus’ friends … to go as emissaries of the incarnate word, to be a gift and to speak and act for God’s dream. To go into the world of God’s dream.”Calling each and every one into action, the presiding bishop said: “God is sending you to a rebellious house, full of impudent and stubborn folks.  As the prophet Pogo said, ’is us.’Your job is to go and say, “listen up – here’s the deal, God’s got a better world in mind, and you are needed to help make it happen.”  And once you’ve started the conversation about good news, keep moving, keep showing and telling the world what God’s dream looks like.“Eventually, the world will know they’ve met a prophet – a whole community of prophets.”God is sending you to a rebellious house; full of impudent and stubborn folk (…) some is us. Your job is to go and say “listen up, here is the deal: God has a better world in mind and you are needed to help make it happen; and once you’ve started the conversation about good news, keep moving, keep showing and telling the world what God’s dream looks like, and eventually the world will know… they’ve met a prophet, a full community of prophets.”UTO representatives from each province and diocese – many of them dressed in bright UTO blue –approached the altar and presented slips of paper with the dollar amount they raised over the past triennium for the United Thank Offering, a grant-making agency that supports work that alleviates human suffering. UTO grants are funded in large part with the money that Episcopalians deposit as thanksgiving offerings in small cardboard “blue boxes,” which many keep in their homes and offices.Diocese of Haiti Bishop Zache Duracin and Bishop Suffragan Ogé Beauvoir concelebrated the Eucharist with Jefferts Schori. The Rev. Drew Klatte of Indianapolis and the Rev. Pamela Nesbit of Pennsylvania were the deacons.— Cesar Cardoza is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.The following sermon was presented today at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, meeting in Indianapolis IN through July 12.UTO INGATHERING AND FESTIVAL EUCHARISTSunday, July 8The Most Rev.

Photo/Lynette WilsonGarrison Keillor is famous for noting that nobody wants a prophet at a birthday party.  Our image of prophets is something like fire-breathing dragons or maybe Nunzilla, but a prophet is simply somebody sent to speak for God, to tell it like it really is.  Sometimes prophets speak words of comfort and strength, the kind of words the psalmist is asking for – mercy and relief.  And sometimes the prophet speaks words that are harder to hear, reminding us that we’re supposed to love God with all we are and have and love our neighbors as ourselves.  The reminder usually comes because the audience hasn’t been living up to that expectation.  Whatever Jesus said in the synagogue seems to have been that kind of challenging word.Jesus’ friends and neighbors obviously don’t expect to hear anything prophetic from the ordinary carpenter down the street or from the brother of their friends.  He has never stood up in their synagogue before and said anything particularly challenging – so who does he think he is?  Mark doesn’t tell us what he reads or says.  Luke says that it’s the part of Isaiah that says, “the Spirit has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, healing to the blind, justice to the oppressed, and to announce the year of the Lord’s favor.”  And his friends and neighbors are offended.It is offensive – and confronting and challenging – to hear that even though you think you’re getting along OK, you’ve missed the boat.  Yet until we can see the chasm between what is and what ought to be, we don’t have any hope of changing.  Indeed it is the act of crossing that boundary between what is and what ought to be that is so characteristic of prophets.  When Jesus is called a prophet, it has to do with erasing the boundary between God and human flesh.  Prophetic words of comfort or challenge urge a kind of frontier work – getting across the fence between fear and possibility, reconciling division, transforming injustice, urging the lost onto the road home.Sometimes those encouragers of boundary crossing come in very ordinary, even quiet, packages – and that may be what the people in Jesus’ hometown were so annoyed about.  It’s harder to ignore somebody you respect or know pretty well.A prophetic invitation arrived in my inbox a couple of months ago.  A group of Christian leaders and politicians was asked to come to Washington, DC, to consider the state of public discourse in the United States.  The invitation made reference to one of our better known political figures, Senator Jack Danforth.[1]  A conversation about civility seemed a highly appropriate endeavor, but as the day grew closer, getting ready for this gathering seemed a lot more urgent, and I came very close to canceling.  But those who went heard a prophetic chorus of voices – Roman Catholic clergy and religious, Southern Baptist preachers, Senators and Representatives from both parties, Lutheran and Methodist bishops, evangelical pastors from the Assembly of God and Pentecostal traditions.  Each one lamented the loss of respect for political opponents and the inability to make common cause for the greater good.  We didn’t read today’s psalm, but it certainly fit the conversation:Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy, we’ve had more than enough contempt.Please!  No more ridicule from the arrogant, or abuse from proud and conceited people!We started our gathering by talking about the hope of Americans and indeed people across the world for change, in the face of the contempt and arrogance they hear from Congress and other politicians.  We soon moved to talking about the abuse and ridicule we hear from our brothers and sisters in Christ.  That sort of confession brought hope, and urged us into other kinds of frontier crossing, beginning with finding a prayer partner.  Mine is the Rev. Franklyn Richardson, pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon, New York and Port St Lucie, Florida.  Other kinds of prophetic action and word are going to emerge from this process, including a statement and a number of positive actions to encourage more civil and effective discourse in politics and in our religious lives.  Words matter profoundly, and as Christians we affirm that every time we gather to give thanks for the frontier crossing incarnate Word in our midst.Prophets speak and act for God, with spoken and incarnate words of strength, hope, and challenge.  That ministry comes in many forms.  Today we’re going to give thanks for the prophetic work of the United Thank Offering, reaching out in creative possibility around the globe.  Each triennial gathering of the Episcopal Church Women begins with a blessing and distribution of crosses, and the hands that are extended to receive them are a sacrament of blessing for this kind of prophetic work.  When Jesus lays on hands and heals a few, even in a place that doesn’t think he’s got much to offer, he’s doing something prophetic.  The work those hands of ECW members do in gathering and blessing ministries around the globe is another way of reaching out across borders, boundaries, walls and fences of division.What about your hands?  They, too, are instruments of healing, reconciling, re-creation – let’s see those hands!  Here is a sacrament of God’s mission.  How will you use those hands in an impudent and rebellious house?  These hands can be instruments of warning, or to comfort and strengthen the wavering.  Hands can be instruments of prophetic communication, a gift only some among us have learned.When Jesus goes off to other villages to teach, he is using words and hands in prophetic ways, announcing the reign of God close at hand, healing, feeding, and drawing people into community.  He sends his friends out to do the same things:to announce the good news of the reign of Godto teach new believersto heal the hurtingto challenge injusticeand to tend the garden we share with all the rest of creation.Those five marks of mission are the work and mark of prophets, of all Jesus’ friends and their partners.  All of his commentary about what to take on the trip across the border is a reminder to keep it simple – to go as emissaries of the incarnate word, to be a gift and to speak and act for God’s dream – to GO into the world of God’s dream.When we gather like this to make Eucharist, we offer all that we are and have for this work.  That little exchange that starts, “lift up your hearts,” is about entering another reality – some old translators put it, “hearts aloft!”  Get moving!  Go cross the frontier between heaven and earth – boldly go where Jesus has gone before – and invite others to go with you to help build the world that God intended at creation.So – mortals, prophets – stand up!  God is sending you to a rebellious house, full of impudent and stubborn folks.  As the prophet Pogo said, “is us.”[2]  Your job is to go and say, “listen up – here’s the deal, God’s got a better world in mind, and you are needed to help make it happen.”  And once you’ve started the conversation about good news, keep moving, keep showing and telling the world what God’s dream looks like.Eventually, the world will know they’ve met a prophet – a whole community of prophets.[1] An Episcopal priest as well, he’s been a prophetic force in the search for peace in Sudan.[2] “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” Walt Kelly, cf. The Pogo Papers, 1953. http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Walt_Kelly Act for God’s dream, Presiding Bishop tells convention Eucharist Episcopal Office of Public Affairs, Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori Tags Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH July 9, 2012 at 9:12 am Thank you for a challenging message.

Midweek Madness – Michael Crocker knocked out by the ball

first_imgWednesday Aug 13, 2008 Midweek Madness – Michael Crocker knocked out by the ball With our regular Midweek Madness slot here on RD, we do our best to feature the most unique or bizarre moments from the world of rugby. Scouring the globe for interesting clips often includes searching through the world of Rugby League, which always seems to produce an interesting clip or two. In the recent State of Origin series, Game Three, in which Queensland secured the title, saw burly Melbourne Storm second rower Michael Crocker knocked out from a hit to the head, ending his night temporarily after 51 minutes. Crocker, who will next year be leaving for England to play for Hull FC, took the blow to the head as he seemingly attempted to charge down a kick. You should always get your arms up in front of you though, and in fact, Crocker didn’t really attempt to charge it down at all. He just kinda ran into it. The impact from the Mitchell Pierce kick on Crocker’s melon was such that it knocked him out cold for a minute or two. Crocker left the field, and this ‘Falcon’ will go down in Origin history as one of the more memorable ever seen. The moral of the story? Don’t turn your back on a kick.

In this case though 15.5p of the 25p maximum call charge is donated to Comic Relief. They called the 1999 Comic Relief campaign “the Record Breaker.” This year surely will live up to that name. There are strong hints that the online fundraising component is expected to generate substantial income. Will we see the first million pound plus total for online donations in one day? We think so. We’ll find out in a week’s time.
