Goff to the Virginia episcopate upon her ordination and consecration as bishop suffragan on July 28 at St. Paul’s, Richmond. Diocese of Virginia photo/Brandon Martin[Diocese of Virginia] Susan Ellyn Goff was ordained and consecrated July 28 as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Virginia at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Richmond.More than 700 people gathered to celebrate the consecration of Virginia’s first female bishop.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was the chief consecrator. Co-consecrators were the Rt. Rev. Shannon S. Johnston, bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Edwin F. Gulick Jr., assistant bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Peter James Lee, retired bishop of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. David C. Jones, retired bishop suffragan of Virginia; the Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens, bishop suffragan of Connecticut; and the Rev. James Mauney, bishop of the Virginia Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The preacher was the Rt. Rev. Richard Blackburn, Bishop of Warrington, in the United Kingdom.Most recently, Goff served as canon to the ordinary of the diocese, working with Johnston on such matters as the ordination process and disciplinary matters.A graduate of Douglass College, New Brunswick, N.J., and Union Theological Seminary, New York, N.Y., Goff has spent her 32-year ministry in Virginia. Prior to joining the diocesan staff, she served at St. Christopher’s Church in Springfield; Immanuel, Old Church in Mechanicsville; St. Catherine’s School in Richmond; and St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock.“I am thrilled to see Susan Goff joining the episcopate in Virginia,” Johnston said prior to the ordination and consecration. “She brings great wisdom, knowledge, grace and discretion to the position.”As bishop suffragan, Goff will support mission congregations and will provide day-to-day oversight of Dayspring, the diocesan-wide initiative to bring vision and strategy surrounding the properties returned to the diocese following a recent legal dispute. A fluent speaker of Spanish, she will also work to support multicultural and ethnic ministries.“For me, what the Kingdom of God is all about, the very visual image I have of it is of the heavenly banquet: men, women, children, people of all nationalities, languages, cultures, ages, genders, physical abilities, sexual orientations, the wealthy and the poor are gathered around the table,” Goff said in an article in the summer edition of the Virginia Episcopalian. “Since that’s what the Kingdom of God is, then that’s what the Church is called to be.“For the Church to be doing the mission of Christ in the world,” she added, “we are therefore called to minister to and with a wider variety of people than ever before. We’re on the cusp of shifting from … ministry ‘to’ to ministry ‘with.’”Goff was elected April 21. General Convention gave her the consent to her ordination and consecration, as currently required of all bishops elected within 120 days of the beginning of convention.

Para lograrlo —según dicen los miembros de la comisión— el primer desafío está en la preparación de clérigos y laicos.“Los seminarios no pueden enfocarse en un solo aspecto, se debe integrar la teología con la realidad actual, con todo lo que toca a nuestra sociedad. La pastoral se debe mover en diversos campos y procurar, por medio del mensaje del evangelio, formar, cambiar y transformar la sociedad. Pero para ello se necesita una buena formación”, afirmó el obispo Julio Holguín, presidente de la CETALC.Como primer paso para encaminar la formación, tras un encuentro a finales de agosto, los miembros de la CETALC han acordado homologar los planes de estudio en toda América Latina.“Consideramos que al ser una misma iglesia, el caminar de la educación teológica no puede realizarse de manera fragmentada. Generar un proceso de acción y reflexión visualizando los desafíos a los cuales nos enfrentamos en este siglo puede ayudarnos a generar una perspectiva más amplia y [a dar] una respuesta como bloque”, explicó el Rdo. Eduardo Chinchilla, representante de Costa Rica en la CETALC.El obispo Holguín manifestó que otro de los desafíos que han analizado como CETALC es la identidad, el ser episcopal en un contexto latinoamericano es un reto. Según el obispo Holguín, en muchas regiones se puede ver la influencia de otras denominaciones religiosas dentro de las iglesias anglicanas. En otras comunidades, sin embargo, se puede ver a los clérigos luchando por mantener la identidad episcopal pero olvidando el contexto en el que se desarrollan.Respecto a este desafío, según el Rdo. Chinchilla, uno de los grandes acuerdos en el último encuentro de la CETALC fue la futura publicación de un libro sobre la historia del anglicanismo en toda América Latina y el Caribe “para que se use como libro de texto en toda la iglesia.”Mayor presencia de las mujeresLa Iglesia Episcopal ha revolucionado mucho con su apertura a grupos históricamente marginados como las mujeres y la comunidad LGBT. Sin embargo, la presencia de mujeres en la formación teológica es reciente en Latinoamérica.“Para mi uno de los puntos importantes del último encuentro es que había mujeres encargadas de la educación teológica representando a algunos países. En el pasado, en esa reunión uno veía sólo hombres, pero en esta ocasión hubo más presencia de mujeres”, dijo a ENS la Rda. Glenda McQueen, funcionaria de la Iglesia Episcopal para América Latina y el Caribe.Cuba, México, El Salvador y Brasil tienen a mujeres sacerdotes como directoras de educación teológica. “En mi equipo de trabajo soy la única mujer, pero nunca he sentido que me traten diferente. Apoyan mi trabajo y aprecian mis cualidades”, expresó la Rda. Irma Guerra de Alvarado, directora de educación teológica de El Salvador.De hecho, su trabajo en El Salvador en este momento es muy importante, dado que la iglesia episcopal tiene previsto abrir su primer seminario en 2017 y la formación de las futuras generaciones está en sus manos. La Rda. Guerra fue la primera sacerdote salvadoreña formada y ordenada en San Salvador. “No somos muchas, pero esperamos que con oportunidades de formación en el país, el número de mujeres religiosas y laicas aumente”, dijo la Rda. Guerra.El obispo Holguín reconoció que en medio de la cultura latinoamericana —donde el machismo está muy arraigado— el camino para las mujeres episcopales no ha sido fácil, pero se ha avanzado.“Hay mucho por luchar aún, en especial en algunas zonas de Suramérica, porque no se ha logrado que las mujeres logren la plenitud de [la] ordenación; pero hemos avanzado y no hay retroceso. Se tiene claro que el ministerio y el trabajo pastoral es una tarea para hombres y mujeres. Todos estamos llamados por igual”, afirmó el obispo.Realidad social y formaciónLatinoamérica y el Caribe enfrentan hoy más que nunca problemas sociales como la pobreza, la migración, la violencia, el desempleo, la crisis política, etc. La CETALC considera que los religiosos y laicos deben estar preparados para responder a estos problemas desde la fe y el trabajo pastoral. Para ello se espera reformar y homologar todos los planes de estudio de la región, mientras tanto la Comisión continúa con sus esfuerzos por extender las oportunidades de educación mediante becas.La Rda. McQueen explicó que se continuará otorgando becas contempladas en seis categorías. Estás van desde becas individuales para visitar Tierra Santa, becas de investigación, subvenciones a diócesis e incluso algunos apoyos financieros para educación por provincia.Según el Rdo. Chinchilla, las provincias también han decidido compartir recursos para la formación. De hecho, se planteó la posibilidad de intercambios de docentes y de estudiantes, al igual que de recursos bibliográficos. Brasil ya puso a disposición de todos los seminarios participantes su banco de recursos en español y portugués desde su página web.El obispo Holguín espera que estos esfuerzos contribuyan a un mejor trabajo pastoral en Latinoamérica y el Caribe. Sin embargo, reconoce que ante la realidad de los países de la zona, muchas veces los clérigos ya formados emigran a Estados Unidos u otros países.“Nos alegra que nuestros clérigos tengan buena acogida en EE.UU. Vemos con satisfacción que muchos sirvan a la comunidad latina allá. Aunque lo ideal sería que también encontraran buenas oportunidades en sus propios países”, manifestó el obispo.La CETALC funciona desde los años 70, por lo que cientos de clérigos se han formado con su apoyo. La Comisión prepara en este momento un estudio centrado en el impacto que ha tenido la educación teológica en Latinoamérica. Se espera que el informe final se presente a finales de este año.

The APD is presenting a new elementary school program to help students make positive decisions. It’s called MAGIC.MAGIC – an acronym for Mentoring, Advising, Guiding and Instructing Children – is a ten-week series of lessons offered to fifth graders at each of the Apopka area’s five elementary schools. It encourages students to know the impacts of good and bad decisions, but just as important, how to deal with influences from friends and others who often create pressure for those difficult choices. The goal is to educate younger students before they head into middle and high schools, where they are more likely to encounter relationships that potentially lead to unlawful decisions. Students also become more familiar with police officers as approachable and understanding adults who do more than enforce the law.“It’s been really great, and the kids have been very accepting of it,” said Police Officer Robert Campbell, who recently joined Apopka’s school resource program to focus on elementary classrooms. He presented MAGIC on Friday to fifth-graders at Apopka Elementary School. “The whole concept behind this program is to understand that their future decisions will have consequences.”Social influences also are important. “It taught me that just because your friend does something doesn’t mean you should go and do it, too,” said student McKayla Oliveira.Students complete workbooks with their lessons from Officer Campbell. They also write essays before graduating from the program.Photos from the City of Apopka Public Information Office Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Reply Carissa Please enter your comment!

The brief is for a family house providing the range of accommodation generally recognised as being appropriate and aspiring to a high quality design and execution.The proposed alterations have been made to provide a more flexible accommodation responding to family life. This has involved the creation of a more open plan internal arrangement with the extension and terrace to the rear to better address the garden and blur the line between inside and outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stephenson ISA StudioIt is proposed once the conservatory is demolished to extend one metre into the garden and to infill the ‘corner’ to the south west to provide a flexible open plan kitchen, dining and living space with full height glazing facing the garden, much of which can be opened up to bring the garden into the house. The terrace is a continuation of the living space with the stone floor continuing outside and is overhung by a stone clad cantilevered ‘frame’ which partially encloses the terrace and makes use of space in the garden. The canopy will provide shading in summer in the afternoons and allow in the low winter sun.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stephenson ISA StudioThe new living area and space above for the new master bedroom forms a timber clad box infill to the corner of the building which sits on a brick plinth and is bisected by the floating ‘frame’ at first floor level.

Ryan Rubischko, Dicamba lead for Monsanto, says they will be addressing those issues in 2018, “Our application requirements and the things we have on our label, lead to success. But we also recognize where we have other areas where we have opportunities to continue to train.”Rubischko told HAT that it has been proven the technology works and that, if growers follow label directions, drift will be minimized, “When folks are following the label and doing things appropriately, they are having success.” He anticipates that more growers will give Dicamba a try in 2018, “A lot of the farmers I talk to are really excited about 2018 and using the control that Xtendimax can provide.” He added Monsanto is anticipating a large number of farmers will adopt theNew technology to control resistant weeds in 2018.Scott Kay, VP of U.S. Crop for BASF, says his company will be working closely with farmers in 2018 to make sure Dicamba is used correctly, “We want to better train and educate farmers in the 2018 growing season.” He said manufacturers have learned a lot about application of the new technology and want to work with producers to manage it safely and effectively in the future. What remains to be seen is if state and federal regulators will allow that to happen or will impose new restrictions on the product.The state of Arkansas is one step away from establishing a seasonal dicamba ban. The Arkansas State Plant Board advanced a proposal last week saying the use of dicamba should be prohibited from April 16 – October 31, 2018. The move comes after farmers complained that soybeans and other crops were damaged when the herbicide drifted away from where it was sprayed this summer. However, another group of farmers petitioned the state against the ban. Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 27, 2017 SHARE
SPOT reviews of faculty start April 18. World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Title IX advocate works to support TCU survivors of sexual assault Previous articleListen: Ball Don’t Lie: Special Draft EditionNext articleHoroscope: April 11, 2018 Caroline Love RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Students share ideas at ‘I Am Heard’ sexual assault forum Linkedin ReddIt print<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Male faculty sometimes have higher teaching evaluations than their female peers, but researchers and some TCU faculty said this might be a sign of unconscious bias on the part of students rather than consistently better teaching.According to a 2017 Chronicle of Higher Education article, most people have biases they’re unaware of that are caused partially by “repeated exposure to stereotypes.” Tackling these biases typically requires addressing their influence.Students are more likely to perceive male professors as “brilliant, awesome, and knowledgeable,” but female professors with similar teaching styles are more likely to be considered “bossy and annoying,” according to a study by Innovative Higher Education cited in a Chronicle Data article.SPOTs, or student perceptions of teaching, are sent to students at the end of each semester. This year’s evaluations will be sent out April 18 and will close May 6.According to David Grant, a religion professor and the chair of the university evaluation committee that reviews the SPOT survey methods and response rates, administrators can use the student evaluations to review faculty performance. Grant said he was a department chair for six years and used the student reviews to evaluate faculty teaching effectiveness.Kat Barger, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy, said at the March Faculty Senate that male faculty receive higher SPOT evaluations than female faculty. She said bias causes these disparities. Facebook Linkedin Facebook Caroline Love graduated from TCU’s journalism program in May 2019.

She also said the bias in her SPOTs starts in the classroom. She said her students are more disrespectful toward her than her male colleagues.“I have to tell students to put away their cell phones a lot more often,” she said. “I know that happens more often in my classes because I’ve had other faculty sit in on my class and observe.”Other female faculty members said they’ve experienced a similar bias. Rhiannon Mayne, an associate professor of geology, said a student called her 21-year-old teaching assistant “doctor” and her “Mrs. Mayne– which is my mother.”Grant said while SPOTs are considered in tenure and promotion, they’re only one factor in the decision. Barger, who is on the Faculty Senate Educational Curriculum Committee, said the committee has set a guideline that SPOTs should only account for one-third of a faculty member’s teaching evaluations. She also said the people doing faculty reviews should be aware of the potential for bias.
