British Columbia parishes grapple with summer wildfires’ aftermath

first_imgBritish Columbia parishes grapple with summer wildfires’ aftermath Rector Albany, NY 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 The following is the conclusion of a two-part story detailing the experience and aftermath of the B.C. summer wildfires from an Anglican perspective. You can read the first part here.[Anglican Church of Canada] Though the height of the summer wildfire season in British Columbia may have passed, the efforts of communities to rebuild in its wake remain ongoing.Anglicans residing within the Territory of the People have been on the front lines of devastation caused by the fires. Visiting St. Luke’s Anglican Church in the Chilcoten area, the Rev. Kris Dobyns witnessed the scope of the damage firsthand.“It was awful driving out there,” Dobyns said. “You could just see the burned trees on both sides. … You could see maybe a chimney and a fireplace, and the whole house just burned to ashes.“We saw a place where there were six or seven cars just completely burned out … just devastating. It’s going to take years to recover.”All residents in the area were affected by the large amounts of smoke that billowed into the air over a protracted period. The poor air quality could reach dangerous levels for weeks at a time, putting at particular risk those with respiratory health issues.Meanwhile, the effect on livestock threatened the livelihood of ranchers, with many of the 35,000 cattle in fire-affected regions remaining unaccounted for.“A lot of our folks who are ranchers are of course devastated,” episcopal commissary Ken Gray said.“They’ve lost fencing, they’ve lost animals, they’ve lost grazing land, they’ve lost forest cover. … In terms of the area the territory covers … the effect on ranchers and the effect on the forest industry is huge.“That’s going to affect local economies, and it’s going to affect parish fiscal stability as well.”In Kamloops, where Gray serves as dean of St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral, the city has experienced a significant increase in homelessness. Many have been displaced from their home communities, and Anglicans active in shelter ministry are expecting an increase in demand. Some workers have opted not to return, prompting a labor shortage in communities such as Williams Lake and Cache Creek.The economic repercussions of the fires are prominent in the mind of the Rev. Jim White, a retired Anglican priest and non-Indigenous pastoral elder who sometimes provides ministry to the First Nations community in Lytton, as well as at an ecumenical parish in Logan Lake.“My biggest concern right now is the number of small businesses that are going to survive the next year,” White said. He offered the example of Cache Creek Golf Course, which recently closed because not enough people could reach the golf course to provide the necessary revenue for it to stay in business.“I am somewhat pessimistic that the businesses that are in existence today will be here a year from now,” he added.In response, local Anglicans are making a push for residents to “buy local” in order to support small businesses in the area.Community solidarityAt the peak of the fire, residents worked together to help each other out wherever they could. During the month of July, White’s son was putting in 1,300 hours of volunteer hours as a volunteer firefighter along with his crew.At another point, when the town of Ashcroft lost utilities, including electricity and phone service, his neighbor used a portable generator and extension cord to help people recharge their mobile phones.“It’s things you don’t think of,” White said.In the wake of the fire, affected communities have worked together to rebuild and persevere. The decreasing level of wildfires since summer has in its own way helped restore a greater sense of normalcy for residents.“Anxiety levels are significantly reduced,” Gray said. “Air quality has significantly improved. Really, especially in the smaller communities, folks are getting back on their feet.”Nevertheless, the emotional toll has affected many residents and prompted the creation of mutual support groups. In Williams Lake and 100 Mile House, Dobyns and her husband Keith have attended meetings as part of the 2017 Wildfire Recovery Mental Health Working Group, with pastors’ fellowships in both towns working to address mental health issues amidst the recovery.Anglicans in other parts of the country have also come together in a variety of ways to provide aid for communities impacted by the wildfires. Gray said the Territory of the People has received donations totaling more than $35,000 from individuals and organizations such as the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund, with the money being sent to clergy for use in their discretionary funds to help individuals resettle and rebuild.A moving symbolic gesture came when Dobyns attended the recent provincial synod executive council as a delegate and saw more than 70 prayer shawls brought by a priest from Vancouver Island, whose parish had decided to make the shawls to help support the Territory of the People during the fires.Taking six of the prayer shawls back to the cathedral, Dobyns distributed them at a joint annual worship service and potluck for the 100 Mile House and Williams Lake parishes. The shawls were received so enthusiastically that she planned to return and pick up more.“People were so moved to receive those. … It is so comforting to know that people have been praying for you, and to wrap yourself in what feels like a blanket of prayers,” Dobyns said.‘New normal’With the continued exacerbation of wildfire seasons due to climate change, B.C. communities are pondering how they might minimize further wildfire damage in the years to come.Later this fall, St. Paul’s Cathedral in Kamloops will host a meeting of community leaders and care providers to examine lessons from this year’s fires and how they might incorporate them moving forward.“Something like this is going to be the new normal, and we’re wondering what we can do now to ensure an effective and appropriate response next year,” Gray said.“Both in Prince George and Kamloops, I think the community response was extremely good,” he added. “Folks mobilized very quickly and very effectively. But we’re going to have to organize not just for this year, but … for the foreseeable future. I think that’s worth noting.” Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector Columbus, GA Curate Diocese of Nebraska By Matt GardnerPosted Oct 19, 2017 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit a Press Release Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Charity Commission launches Register of Mergers

first_img The Charity Commission has begun a Register of Mergers to list and record charities which have merged with each other, one of the requirements of the Charities Act 2006.One of the advantages of the new Register is a simpler process for receiving legacies made out to a charity that has merged with another. Previously merged charities often had to maintain a ‘shell’ charity to carry on receiving legacies and gifts given in its old name, or come to the Commission to make a legal scheme to enable gifts to pass to the successor charity.Now such gifts wiill transfer automatically to the successor charity created by the merger, provided the merger has been registered with the Commission. Advertisement The online Register will show:* The names and registered numbers of the transferor and transferee charities;* the date the merger was registered with the Commission;* the date or dates when the transfer or transfers of property involved took place;* the details of any vesting declaration that was made in connection with the merger.The Commission’s Chief Executive, Andrew Hind, said: “The Register of Mergers will free charities from the cost and effort of maintaining shell charities and, with time, provide an accessible and valuable record of mergers in the sector.”The Register and the forms through which merging charities apply for registration are available from the Charity Commission’s website.

He was on arrested on 19 July and then placed in custody under article 153 of the Pakistani criminal code for publishing extracts of a book deemed to be an incitement to religious hate.Wajood and two other Islamist weeklies, Zarb-e-Islam and Friday Special, were banned last month by the Sindh government on the same grounds. Friday Special deputy editor Abdul Latif Abu Shamil was freed on bail on 5 August by a judge in Karachi, the capital of Sindh.___________________________________________________________23.07.2005Fight against hate media risks being used as a pretext to curb free expressionReporters Without Borders expressed concern at abuses during a massive security forces operation against Islamist extremist groups, including against Karachi-based publications.The worldwide press freedom organisation stresses its strong condemnation of calls to violence and racial hatred pedalled by some Pakistani publications but cautions against misuse of anti-terror laws to imprison journalists critical of the current government.”The credibility of the anti-terrorist policy of President Pervez Musharraf will be judged by its ability to respect the law and not to make use of it to silence opponents,” the organisation said.Police in Sindh Province on 19 July searched the offices of at least four Karachi-based publications: the weeklies Friday Special, Wajood, and Ghazi as well as the daily Ummat.At least two journalists are now in police custody. Abdul Lateef Abu Shamil, associate editor of Friday Special (supplement of the Urdu-language daily Jasarat, close to the fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami party) was detained under Articles 153 (A) and 34 of the Pakistani criminal code. Police are looking for the weekly’s editor. Mohammed Tahir, editor of Wajood, was also placed in custody until 2 August. Two of his colleagues, Ali Ataf and Zakirullah, have gone into hiding.Police on 16 July arrested two managers of the extremist weekly Zarab-e-Islam in Karachi. They have been charged with incitement to religious hatred. Police also arrested the vendors of another radical weekly Zarb-e-Momin which has been banned. Both openly support Jihadist groups.The Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) has condemned the arrests and police searches as has the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ). “Why ban these publications now when they have been in existence for years?” asked the PFUJ.These steps have been taken against the background of a wave of arrests of militants throughout Pakistan. More than 200 people have been arrested and raids launched against scores of religious schools. President Musharraf justified the sweep in an address to the nation on 21 July 2005 as essential to the fight against international terrorism.
