Surely the impact of its presence and deliberations there will have more than a long or short term lasting affect upon the participants, and indeed all those who read about, and vicariously through media experience those happenings. These gatherings help to keep” hope alive” for our Episcopal church. and its youth in making this a better world for all to experience and live in by love, and by what we do in supporting each other through whatever means possible; particularly through the preaching, and practicing of the gospel of God in Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit which lives within which helps. and enables us, and peoples of all “sorts and conditions” to be and becomes all that we are made for and are called to in this world and that to come.

In nearly 30 minutes he invoked St. Augustine, Jimi Hendrix and Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey, as well as Muffin the Ugly Cat.Video of the entire closing Eucharist is here.Earlier in the day EYE14 heard a story of that sort of love enacted outside the walls of church from the Rev. Becca Stevens, founder of Magdalene and Thistle Farms, residential and social enterprises run by women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction and life on the streets.Her stories, which ranged from Tennessee to Rwanda to a women’s prison in Texas, brought some to tears and held others spellbound. She told her listeners that all of the women “never doubted the idea that love heals.”Stevens, the Episcopal chaplain to Vanderbilt University, warned EYE14 that the work of Thistle Farms and Magdalene and all other efforts like them for which the Episcopal Church is known have to be movements based in community and not individual efforts. Showing them a painting of the Last Supper, she said, “If we’re not a movement … the church becomes a still life.”“And it’s beautiful to look at but we’re not going to sit there forever and we are going to move on,” she said, adding that when she looks at that painting she imagines the apostles pushing back from the table and going back out into the world. “If they had stayed there – as beautiful as it was, as meaningful as it was, as important as it was to the life of the world – if they had not turned around and gone back out, we would never know that story.”Episcopal Youth Event 2014 participants, some wearing very popular glow sticks given away by the United Thanks Offering, watch a video July 12 about the mission and ministry of the Community of Magdalene and Thistle Farms, a residential and social enterprise run by women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction, and life on the streets; and led by the Rev. Becca Stevens. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceStevens told EYE14 that “we are called to love the world,” she said.“There is nothing in Scripture that says we have to change it. There is nothing in Scripture that says the world has to love us,” she said. “The calling is that you and I go back out and love [the world] over and over and over again until we get it right. We love it in such a way that we’re willing to change. We love it in such a way that we’re willing not to judge it. We’re loving it in a way where we’re not willing to leave anyone behind.”Video of Stevens’ presentation is here.The Episcopal Youth Event 2014 included 786 youth in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 academic year and 263 adult leaders who spent July 9-12 here on the campus of Villanova University near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. EYE14’s theme was “Marked for Mission” and the gathering was built around helping participants discern how the Holy Spirit has marked them for mission and how they might engage in the work of the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, as a way to enact the call to love that they were hearing.During the opening plenary session July 10 Bronwyn Clark Skov, Episcopal Church Youth Ministries Officer, gave what was for many participants an introduction to the Five Marks of Mission. She suggested they spend their time together at EYE14 exploring the connection between Scripture, responding to God’s call and “discerning our personal paths to ministry within the greater context of the community.” Her presentation begins at the 32:00 mark here.The 14 youth members of the EYE14 planning team (listed here) gave her a shorthand way to remember the intent of each marks, Clark Skov said. The method, easily counted off on the fingers of one had, is Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform, Treasure. A video the youth made connecting a favorite Scripture passage to each mark is here.On July 11, EYE14 participants went on a “Philadelphia Pilgrimage.” They boarded 20 buses and fanned out to 16 sites all over the Philadelphia area to learn about the current ministry of the Episcopal Church in city and get a glimpse of the history of the Episcopal Church.The night before, the Rev. Randy Callender, a Philadelphia native, who is the rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Annapolis, Maryland, told them that “the city of Philadelphia will help you to understand the Five Marks of Mission” and may transform their understanding of mission.“One day, the young people here at EYE will make a difference in someone’s life,” he predicted, adding that they will end “racism and sexism and classism and all other -isms and people will no longer use those -isms as tools to keep others out of the church.”Video of Callender’s presentation is here.Before the pilgrims left early on July 11, Diocese of Pennsylvania Bishop Clifton Daniel III told them that it was a “joy” to host EYE14. He recalled attending an event for Episcopal Church youth in 1964, an event which “formed me and shaped me in ways that I could not imagine” at the time. The same is true for the youth who have come to Philadelphia, said Daniel, who added he could see the future ordained and lay leadership of the Episcopal Church sitting before him.“I am proud to be here with you, and I thank God for you,” Daniel said.Every one of the 20 pilgrimage buses visited Independence National Historic Park and Christ Church, Philadelphia, where those who became known as Episcopalians gathered for the first time in General Convention at Christ Church in Philadelphia in 1785.The other pilgrimage sites were:St. James SchoolSt. Mark’s Church, Locust StreetThe Free Church of St. John, KensingtonThe Church of St. Martin-in-the-Field, Chestnut HillChurch of St. Thomas, WhitemarshEpiscopal Community ServicesSt. Peter’s Church, Third and PineSt. Paul’s Church, ChesterSt. Mary’s Church, ChesterSt. Luke’s Church, GermantownThe Church of the AdvocateChurch of St. Luke and the EpiphanyThe African Episcopal Church of St. ThomasThe Cathedral Church of Our Savior, Philadelphia CathedralAlong the way, the EYE14 pilgrims were welcomed and, at times, challenged. For some who went the Episcopal Community Services’ St. Barnabas Mission the challenge came to their attitudes about the nature of homelessness. Others had their liturgical piety challenged by the experience of Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Mark’s Church.The Diocese of Massachusetts delegation had the eye-opening experience of seeing the diocese’s retired Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris portrayed in a stained glass window at St. Thomas. “Wow,” said one pilgrim. “I know someone in a stained glass window. I never thought that would happen.”Three of nearly 800 youth sit on a wall on the terrace of the Philadelphia Museum of Art during a hug picnic July 11 during the Episcopal Youth Event 2014. EYE14’s theme was “Marked for Mission” and their T-shirts and accompanying tote bags were donated by the Diocese of Pennsylvania, co-sponsor of the July 9-12 gathering. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceLate in the afternoon the buses dropped the pilgrims off at the bottom of the Rocky Steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art where, after they made the traditional run up the stairs, they encountered a dinner on the terrace featuring classic Philly foods, including cheesesteaks, hoagies, water ice and local sodas. There was a rousing dance party and a chance to play cornhole, a bean bag toss game that is very popular in Pennsylvania.The day was not over yet. EYE14 returned to Villanova for Evening Prayer with the high-energy music of the St. Thomas Gospel Choir of Philadelphia and the HighLite Vibes of the Diocese of Long Island. Video of the complete service is here.During her sermon Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori challenged the pilgrims to contemplate and then tell the stories of their experience that day.“You’ve been out and about in this city today, discovering its diversity, both its need and its blessings. Each one of you has a story to tell about the encounters of this day,” she said. “I hope you have been moved and marked and changed by someone or something you encountered today.”Jefferts Schori said she hoped EYE14 participants would tell the stories of that pilgrimage because their friends and the entire world need to pay attention to the brokenness of the world and its causes, and they need to hear about the dreams Christians have for the wholeness that is the kingdom of God.When encountering a person who is hurting or hungry, she said, there is a choice. “Will we engage or will we ignore that person? If we connect, we’ve got to share something of that good news – that all of us are loved beyond imagining, and that we’re willing to show that love in concrete ways.”And, Christians are called to do more, said Jefferts Schori. “It may start by feeding somebody who’s hungry, but it doesn’t end there. We can feed someone a meal, but if nothing changes, that person is going to be hungry again in a few hours,” she said. “That’s where the longer-term and bigger-picture work of transformation starts – asking why this person is hungry, or why so many people are standing on street corners asking for help.”Those sorts of questions can be annoying and irritating, she said, but they come from the Holy Spirit “acting more like a mosquito than a dove” that will “pester us and make us restless until there is justice for all.”“We all need to be bitten, marked with an itch for what the world could be like,” Jefferts Schori said, adding in an echo of the celebration at the museum earlier that evening: “We’re not going to live in peace until everybody can sit down and share God’s great picnic together in peace.”The text of the presiding bishop’s sermon is here.Episcopal Youth Event 2014 participants were encouraged to pick their favorite Scripture verse. Many posted their choice on the nine-panel prayer wall that greeted EYE14 inside the Pavilion at Villanova University for worship and plenary sessions. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFollowing EYE14, more than 300 stayed in Philadelphia to engage 3 Days of Urban Mission. The majority of 3 Days of Urban Mission volunteers will stay at the University of Pennsylvania in inner-city Philadelphia. About 60 additional volunteers will be housed at the Episcopal Mission Center, managed by the Diocese of Pennsylvania. A map of the mission sites is here.Also at EYE14Offertory collections at the opening and closing Eucharists as well during Evening Prayer on July 11 brought in nearly $7,000 which will be divided among Episcopal Relief & Development, the United Thank Offering and the Church of the Advocate, a Philadelphia Episcopal church with an array of outreach activities.Participants were given the chance to choose the first saint for the 2015 Lent Madness bracket. The Rev. Scott Gunn and the Rev. Tim Schenck, members of the Lent Madness Supreme Executive Committee sent video greetings to EYE14 along with their invitation to choose between St. Francis of Assisi and the Archangel Gabriel. Gunn and Schenck were present on campus to supervise the vote and tally the results. Francis won with 60 percent of the vote, according an announcement made before the closing Eucharist.The event’s Twitter Hashtag #EYE14 was a trending topic during the evening of July 10, according to organizers.EYE 14 was present on these social media outlets:EYE14 social media hubArchived videoEYE14 FacebookVineInstagram– The Rev.

Since the project is built on a marvelous spot in the Belgium woods and in a hilly country as ‘Vlaams Brabrant’, it requires an unpretentious architecture. The architecture must merge into the landscape. This house is no typical Flemish house, but an oblong living-object, transversely placed on the contour of the hill, taking over the form of the slope. No bricks were used for this house, but rather a camouflaging green skin of plants and sedum, providing the ultimate integration of house and nature.

The increase fell between November’s gain of 0.4 percent and October’s larger 0.6 percent improvement.Conference Board economist Ataman Ozyildirim said December’s gain was driven by growth in a majority of its components, “suggesting the short-term outlook is getting brighter and the economy continues to build momentum.”There remain a few problem areas, however.”[A] lack of growth in residential construction and average weekly hours in manufacturing remains a concern,” Ozyildirim said.Despite recently seeing their strongest year in more than half a decade, housing starts are still running below their long-term average of about 1.5 million annually—and that situation isn’t expected to normalize for at least another few years, if economists’ forecasts are right.At the same time, other indicators look good: Job growth remained strong to finish out 2014, and consumer confidence is slowly coming up as Americans express more optimism in their financial prospects. Those trends helped push the Conference Board’s gauge of current economic conditions up 0.2 percent to 111.4.The final measure, the Lagging Economic Index, also climbed, matching November’s 0.3 percent gain to reach 115.0.”Current economic conditions measured by the coincident indicators show employment and income gains are helping to keep the U.S. economy on a solid expansionary path despite some weakness in industrial production,” Ozyildirim said.last_img read more

First Mortgages Spike Credit Unions to Record High

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / First Mortgages Spike Credit Unions to Record High The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago August 11, 2016 1,110 Views A spike in first mortgages, along with increases in new and used auto loans, helped to push credit union loan balances up to a record high in the second quarter, according to Q2 data from Callahan & Associates released Thursday.Those three categories accounted for 81.6 percent of loan growth at credit unions last year, according to Callahan & Associates’ analysis. In Q2 2016, a 10.7 percent over-the-year increase resulted in credit union loan balances topping $834.3 billion. The previous all-time high was $809 billion, set in the first quarter of 2016. The included 5,959 credit unions which reported second quarter data.In Q2, first mortgages accounted for 37.6 percent of total loan growth at credit unions after a spike of 9.8 percent over-the-year. The substantial increase resulted in an aggregate loan balance of more than $340.7 billion in first mortgage loans for credit unions, the highest balance ever reported for any one quarter.“What this tells us about the industry is that credit unions are continuing to find success by appealing to and working with their members, to provide them with the financial solutions they need,” Callahan & Associates’ Director of Industry Analysis Sam Taft said. “The credit union industry has had a lot of success over the past few years expanding its presence in the first mortgage market; credit union market share has risen from 5.7 percent in June 2011 to 7.3 percent in June 2016. I believe as awareness builds, consumers are increasingly seeing the benefits of banking with credit unions. Related to this, thinking in terms of the broader market, the fact that credit unions have been able to increase their piece of the pie shows that there is both opportunity and demand in the market for financing that isn’t being filled by the large banks and mortgage finance companies.”Originations were a heavy contributor to that increase, totaling $62.6 billion for the first half of 2016—an increase of 1.7 percent from the first half of 2015 and the highest aggregate amount loaned for the first half of any year since 2013, according to Callahan & Associates.
