Laurel Johnston, program officer for stewardship, “Blessed to Be A Blessing is designed to complement and support a congregation’s annual giving campaign, each of the six contributing writers explores stewardship, giving, gratitude and generosity in connection with the Gospel lection for each Sunday during the month of October through November.”She added, “The series is ideal for those leading stewardship formation, and each week participants can download Blessed to Be a Blessing bulletin inserts as well as a pledge card with a proportional giving chart.”Contributing to the Blessed to Be A Blessing series are: the Rt. Rev. Catharine Waynick, bishop, Diocese of Indianapolis; the Very Rev. Walter B.A Brownridge, dean of the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew, Diocese of Hawaii; Lelanda Lee, member of St. Stephen’s in Longmont, Diocese of Colorado, and a member of Executive Council; Cindy Ruiz, member of St. Elizabeth’s in Fort Worth, Texas, Diocese of Fort Worth; the Rev. Tim Schenck, rector, St. John the Evangelist Hingham, Diocese of Massachusetts; and the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, bishop, of the Diocese of North Carolina.“The month of October is when most congregations across the country embark on their annual giving campaign,” Johnston said. “The purpose of an annual giving campaign is not only to raise support for the life-giving ministries of the congregation, but to also help members of the faith community explore intentional and proportional giving as a spiritual practice that reflects gratitude for the blessings received.”For more information contact Johnston at [email protected] Rector Smithfield, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Trump confirms killing of AQAP chief in Yemen

first_imgPresident Donald Trump confirmed Thursday that the US had killed the leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — days after the jihadist group claimed responsibility for a mass shooting at a US naval base.The US “conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qassim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP),” Trump said in a White House statement.AQAP claimed responsibility on Sunday for a December 6 shooting at US Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida, in which a Saudi Air Force officer killed three American sailors. Washington considers AQAP to be the worldwide jihadist network’s most dangerous branch.The Sunni extremist group has thrived in the chaos of years of civil war between Yemen’s  Saudi-backed government and Shiite rebels who control the capital.”Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces,” Trump said.”His death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qaeda movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security.” Trump did not give any details about the circumstances or the timing of the operation.In the Pensacola attack, eight people were wounded, including two responding sheriff’s deputies, before police shot dead the assailant.The FBI formally identified the attacker as Mohammed Alshamrani, 21, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force who was training in the US.The SITE monitoring group said he had posted a short manifesto on Twitter prior to the attack that read: “I’m against evil, and America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil.” “I hate you because every day you (are) supporting, funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity.”The Twitter account that posted the manifesto also condemned US support for Israel and included a quote from Al-Qaeda’s deceased leader Osama bin Laden.Saudi Arabia’s King Salman was quick to denounce the shooting as a “heinous crime” and said the gunman “does not represent the Saudi people.” Around 850 Saudis are among the 5,000 foreign military personnel being trained in the United States.Topics :last_img read more
