María Magdalena les dice a los demás acerca de la misteriosa desaparición, pero se dan por vencidos y vuelven a casa. María se queda atrás, llorando, y luego no reconoce el resucitado ante ella. Al pasar los días, cada encuentro del resucitado se inicia en la sorpresa o el anonimato – los discípulos pescando toda la noche sin lograr coger pescados, Jesús cocinando desayuno en la playa, los dos con rumbo a Emaús. Nadie le reconoce a primera vista.Es evidente que el cuerpo resucitado no es idéntico al del Jesús que fue crucificado. Las personas lo confunden con un extraño. Él entra en habitaciones cerradas. Camina por el camino a Emaús por un largo tiempo sin ser reconocido. Crucifixión, muerte y resurrección resultan en un cuerpo transformado –  con cicatrices evidentes, pero no obstante cambiado. Cuando Él  recuerda a otros del banquete de Dios, esto significó que era para todo el mundo – cuando los seres humanos son alimentados y se les da agua, son liberados de la cárcel, reunidos desde el exilio en toda la tierra, sanados y reconciliados en una comunidad de paz – sus compañeros descubren que una vez ha estado en medio de ellos.¿Qué realmente significó esa resurrección para el Cuerpo de Cristo del cual formamos parte?  ¿Cómo el cuerpo resucitado de Cristo – lo que a menudo llamamos la iglesia – diferente del crucificado? Ese cuerpo parece estar más vivo cuando vive más cerca de la realidad del  Viernes Santo y el misterio de la Pascua. En el Occidente, este cuerpo ha sufrido una gran cantidad de muerte en las últimas décadas. Está disminuida, algunos dirían maltratado, cada vez perforado por la apatía y burlado por aborrecedores refinados. Ese cuerpo tiene un poco parecido a las imágenes reales de la historia reciente – aunque, como Jesús, está siendo burlada. El cuerpo recuerda y se aflige, como el cuerpo de Israel clamando en el desierto, “¿por qué nos has traído hasta aquí para morir?” O el cuerpo crucificado que clama: ” Dios mío, ¿Por qué me has abandonado?”, o “¿Por qué nos abandonaste?  “En otros contextos, el Cuerpo de Cristo está literalmente muriendo y derramando su sangre vital – en Pakistán y Sudán, en Irak y Egipto – y en esas antiguas palabras de Tertuliano, la sangre de los mártires está convirtiéndose en la semilla de la iglesia.El Cuerpo de Cristo está levantándose hoy en donde está creciendo menos egocéntrico y enfocado hacia el interior, y viviendo con el corazón hacia lo cósmico y eterno, su atención se centrada intensamente en el amor a Dios y al prójimo. Este cuerpo está levantándose para estar en solidaridad con los criminales condenados a muerte, con las viudas y los huérfanos, con el pueblo de la tierra que esclavizan sobre surcos y campos de lechuga para alimentar al mundo. Este cuerpo se encuentra pasando por paredes y límites que siempre han sido empleados mal para mantener al llamado  “ justo” lejos de todo aquello que no es “seguro” y “puro”. El cuerpo se reconoce cuando los hambrientos son alimentados –  en la orilla del lago con un pez asado, en el camino a Emaús, en las esquinas de la calle y los parques de la ciudad, en las despensas de alimentos y cocinas abiertas, en alimentar  naciones vecinas y antiguos enemigos, y como el cuerpo se reúne una vez más para recordar su identidad y origen – Cristo ha resucitado por el bien de toda la creación.¿Dónde y cómo vamos a buscar el Cuerpo de Cristo, resucitado y levantado? ¿Vamos a compartir la vida de ese cuerpo como un pueblo de pascua, transformado por la resurrección y enviados a transformar el mundo a su vez?Cristo ha resucitado, ¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!, ¡Cristo ha resucitado!Reverendísima Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidente y PrimadoLa Iglesia Episcopal Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Collierville, TN Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Washington, DC Featured Events Associate Rector Columbus, GA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Job Listing Rector Belleville, IL Rector Bath, NC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori Director of Music Morristown, NJ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Shreveport, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Course Director Jerusalem, Israel AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Hopkinsville, KY In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Pittsburgh, PA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Holy Week/Easter, Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Along the way, he falls in love with a prostitute and commits crimes in order to pay for family bills.Barnette said the film has dancing, action and romance, so it can appeal to a wide variety of audiences.“This is exciting because most Americans have no clue there’s a great film culture in that region,” Barnette said.Students must do a lot of behind-the-scenes work to host the event, including securing film rights and contacting the distributor.Barnette said they also needed to find African food to go along with the night’s screening of the films, which, he said, was a lot harder than they originally thought.The event will take place tonight at 6:30 p.m. in Sid Richardson Lecture Hall 3 and will include Ethiopian food.

Police smash up TV station and threaten to kill journalist and family

first_img October 2, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police smash up TV station and threaten to kill journalist and family News Concern about alleged plot to murder Georgian TV host News October 1, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Police smashed up the offices of the Odishi TV station in the western townof Zugdidi last week. They also beat the mother and young son of areporter for another TV station, Rustavi 2. Reporters Without Borders isshocked by this episode and has called for an official investigation. GeorgiaEurope – Central Asia July 20, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders called today for punishment of police who made deaths threats and went on a rampage at a TV station in the west Georgian town of Zugdidi last week hours after it had broadcast criticism of them.About 30 police broke into the offices of the Odishi TV station, beat journalists and technicians and destroyed video and computer equipment. Later they physically attacked the mother and young son of journalist Ema Gogokhia, regional correspondent for the independent station Rustavi 2 (whose news programmes Odishi rebroadcasts), and threatened to kill the whole family. Gogokhia had helped make two programmes that denounced police violence and a corrupt local police chief.”We are deeply shocked by this episode,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Georgian President Edvard Shevardnadze. “Such violence in full view of everyone, as well as the attack on the child, just because journalists had done their job means the death threats to Gogokhia and her family must be taken very seriously. We insist you thoroughly investigate and prosecute those responsible, even if they are government officials.”Eye-witnesses said the attackers included the deputy provincial police chief, Robert Shikobava, and the deputy police chief of the Zugdidi district, Beglar Ponia. The managing editor of Odishi, Levan Kobalia, said he also recognised regional police chief Elguzha Zhamburia among them.Earlier in the day, the station had put out the first Rustavi 2 report about violence by special police units in Zugdidi against demonstrators protesting against the transfer to the capital, Tbilisi, of four people suspected of killing a police officer, Simon Marmania.An hour after the attack on the station, four policemen went to Gogokhia’s home, but she was not there. They beat her mother and 10-year-old son, who they tried to kidnap. Neighbours stopped the child being taken away and heard police warn the mother that she would soon be receiving the severed head of her daughter.Gogokhia said they threatened to kill her family if the second report was broadcast. They said that, unlike star Rustavi 2 presenter Georgiy Sanaya, who was murdered on 26 July last year, her body would never be found. The second report went out on 29 September and implicated Ponia in a petrol smuggling racket.

A bench comprised of Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and KM Joseph held that the High Court had rightly applied the presumption that arises under the provisions of Section 108 of the Evidence Act 1872. Section 108 stipulates that when the question is whether a man is alive or dead, and it is proved that he has not been heard of for seven years by those who would naturally have heard of him if he had been alive, the burden of proving that he is alive is shifted to the person who affirms it. Noting that in the present case the former employee had been unheard of for over 20 years, the court said “We see no reason to entertain the Special Leave Petition”. When the matter was first heard by the court of first instance (Calcutta HC), the single-Judge had observed, “this is an unfortunate case where an employee of the respondents fought at the cost of his life and also gave heavy resistance to the miscreants who came to steal the valuable of the company but failing to do the same they kidnapped the deceased employee and murdered him and concealed the body on the bank of river Damodar, as it appears from the report of the Superintendent of Police.” He had therefore ordered that one of the successors, either the widow or the major son of the deceased employee should be given employment at BCCL. The decision was challenged before a division bench of the High Court after a delay of six years, and the same came to be dismissed. BCCL thereafter moved the Top Court, which refused to interfere with the impugned judgment. “We direct that the petitioner shall comply with the order of the learned Single Judge, within a period of one month from today. The petitioner shall also pay costs quantified at Rs 2 lakhs to the widow of the deceased,” the Supreme Court ordered. The court has directed the company to compensate the former employee’s family which was forced to “run from pillar to post for twenty years”. A report of compliance has to be filed by BCCL within a period of six weeks. Case Details: Case Title: Bharat Coking Coal Limited & Ors. v. Ruda Devi & Ors.

Flexibility key to cutting absenteeism

first_img Previous Article Next Article Flexibility key to cutting absenteeismOn 17 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Flexible working reduces staff absenteeism, according to Industrial Societyresearch. Many of the 300 HR professionals surveyed in Managing Attendance claim thatthe reduction in staff absence is due to the introduction of flexible workinghours, annual leave and home-working practices. The rate of absence has fallen from eight days per employee, per year to 6.5days over the past 18 months. Fifty-five per cent of HR respondents claim more flexible working hours hassignificantly helped with the problem, and nearly half claim flexible annualleave has been important. Forty per cent also believe that home working hashelped. The survey shows that employers are improving their absence monitoring too,although they are not measuring its cost. Four out of 10 companies report all absences, and a third report nine out of10 of all time taken off work – an increase of 8 per cent in reporting since1999. Over 60 per cent of HR professionals cite motivation and return-to-workinterviews as the best way of managing attendance. Theo Blackwell, policy specialist at the Industrial Society, said, “Absenteeismhits productivity and morale in organisations. Firms should regularly examinethe cause of absence and take appropriate action. “This report provides even more evidence of the business case forflexible working. According to HR professionals, more flexibility seems toequal less time of sick and a healthier, happier and more loyalworkforce.” www.indsoc.co.uk Comments are closed. last_img read more
