first_imgSt. Paul’s, K Street, welcomes Bishop James Jelinek as interim rector The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR [St. Paul’s Episcopal Church press release] St. Paul’s Episcopal Church [on K Street in Washington, D.C.] this week welcomes The Right Reverend James Jelinek as its Interim Rector. Jelinek will lead the parish during the transition until its tenth rector is called, a process that will take approximately 15 months.“I am very excited to join this wonderful parish and look forward to walking with the people of St. Paul’s during this time of transition,” said Bishop Jelinek. “St. Paul’s is an extraordinary parish known for its beautiful liturgy, nationally-recognized music program, and commitment to mission.”Bishops do not ordinarily come out of retirement to lead a parish as interim rector, but the Bishop Jelinek said that he was called to do so because of St. Paul’s reputation.Jelinek served for 17 years as Bishop in the Diocese of Minnesota from 1993 to 2010. Prior to that, he served as Rector at St. Aidan’s Church in San Francisco, California, and St. Michael and All Angels in Cincinnati, Ohio. A Wisconsin native, Jelinek is a graduate of Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and The General Theological Seminary in New York City.Jelinek’s position as a bishop played little role in his selection as interim rector. Rather, said Matthew Leddicotte, Senior Warden, “Bishop Jelinek’s energy and commitment to St. Paul’s future success was quite evident. We are excited to have him join us as Interim Rector.”St. Paul’s is a healthy and vibrant urban parish, with robust attendance. In the coming weeks, Jelinek intends to meet as many parishioners as possible in small groups.“The parish views celebration of Mass together as the heart of St. Paul’s community life,” noted Jelinek. “It is the lifeblood that keeps it going. That’s why it is so important to me to get to know the congregation.”Working with the parish, Bishop Jelinek will help the congregation articulate what is important to the parish, and guide them through the core questions that will need to be answered during their search to call the next rector.“When I first visited the congregation,” Jelinek explained, “I was deeply moved by the reverence of the liturgies, the beauty of the music, both very ancient and very modern, and the heartfelt participation of the congregation in the responses and in the singing. Few congregations, as a whole, sing with such fervor. The sense of community is very strong among this quite diverse group of people.”St. Paul’s is a parish of the Diocese of Washington within the Episcopal Church, which is itself a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.  The nationally-known parish is only one of a handful of Episcopal churches in the country to hold Mass 365 days a year, in addition to being one of only two parishes to hold the Anglican service of Evensong every week.

I do wonder, however, about clergy of all stripes (not least Bishops) being called “out of retirement” to serve as interims when, for many who are specifically trained and motivated and experienced in this niche, it is hard enough to find seamless interim postings in the church nationwide. The more often parishes draw from the pool of retired clergy, the fewer the opportunities for active clergy, still seeking to serve in this specialized capacity.

Cricket News Rohit Sharma’s ‘Special Talent’ Suits Him For Test Cricket: Ajinkya Rahane

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rohit Sharma is one of the top batsman in the world when it comes to ODIs and Twenty20 Internationals. Rohit has close to 9000 runs in ODIs and in T20Is, he and Virat Kohli are the two leading run-getters in the format. However, his Test numbers are underwhelming, averaging just 39.62 with three centuries. Rohit, though, has been picked in the India cricket team for the three-Test series against South Africa and many are expecting that he will open the batting. Ajinkya Rahane, who himself underwent a period of struggle for a couple of years before coming to form in the West Indies series, has backed Rohit to do well. “He has worked so hard and if he gets an opportunity, I am sure, he will do well. We all know the quality he has — special talent. Test cricket is all about mindset and ODI cricket, you can just go out there and back yourself. In Test cricket, sometimes if two bowlers are bowling good spells, you need to respect that and come out strong and play your game after that,” Rahane said in a promotional event in Mumbai.Rahane said it was tough to see a ‘special talent’ like Rohit sit out but he was unsure of which position he will bat in the upcoming series. “You want an answer actually? I don’t know yet whether Rohit will open the innings. If he does, I will be happy for him. I said in West Indies also, it is hard to see a special talent like Rohit sitting out,” Rahane said. The Mumbai right-hander has played 58 Tests and 90 ODIs but his last one-dayer was 18 months ago. In 2017, he had a good series against Australia but then his form dipped and in Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri’s rotation policy, Rahane found himself out of the team. However, Rahane expressed his desire to be part of the one-day squad in the near future. Also Read | Rohit Sharma Levels With MS Dhoni For This Awesome Twenty20 International Record”Apart from Tests, I really enjoy playing ODI cricket as well. I want to comeback to ODIs. Right now, the focus is completely on this series. After the Australia series, there was a long break. When I got to know that I was not part of the World Cup squad, my plan was to play county cricket and luckily the Hampshire people called me and asked about the county cricket,” Rahane said. Also Read | Virat Kohli Is Effective As Captain Only Because Of MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma: Gautam GambhirRahane’s stint with Hampshire for close to two months was vital and he admitted that he had fallen in love with cricket all over again. “Apart from cricket, small things helped me a lot. I used to walk alone after the practice session and think what was my thinking when I started playing cricket. The answer was that I enjoyed cricket rather than focusing on the outcome. When you think about focus and outcome, you put yourself under pressure. In county cricket, those two months, I learnt a lot. I played seven matches and the focus was actually on red ball because I knew we would play Dukes ball in the West Indies. Trusting your ability was the key,” Rahane said. last_img read more

Cheniere Presses Ahead with Third Train at Corpus Christi

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Cheniere/Youtube Screenshot Houston-based energy company Cheniere Energy is moving forward with its plans to add a third train at its Corpus Christi liquefaction project.Now that the company’s board of directors made a positive Final Investment Decision (FID) with respect to Train 3, Cheniere will give the green light to Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals to continue construction which began in late 2017 under limited notice to proceed.This represents the first FID on new liquefaction capacity in the United States since 2015, Cheniere said.“Moving forward with the construction of Train 3 at Corpus Christi reinforces our position as the leader in U.S. LNG,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and Chief Executive Officer.“We continue to see significant tailwinds in the global LNG market and look forward to delivering additional growth and value to shareholders.”In order to finance the development of the three trains and associated infrastructure, Cheniere Corpus Christi Holdings, Cheniere’s wholly owned subsidiary, secured amendments to the company’s loans bringing the credit facilities to USD 6.1 billion.The company added that the remaining costs of the CCL Project would be funded from its amended equity contribution agreement with Corpus Christi Holdings, and from cash flows generated by Trains 1 and 2 of the CCL Project after they are placed into service.Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG.last_img read more


Get Acquainted With An Actress Sunita Prasad

first_img Login/Register With: Twitter There was a lot of driving involved haha! At the time there was more going on in Regina for film and television than there was in Saskatoon. There was one acting coach in particular that was instrumental in having me get more serious about acting and she happened to live in Regina. She had come to Saskatoon to do a weekend workshop and I found myself being pushed and challenged in a way I had never been before. She exposed me to acting methods and techniques they weren’t teaching in high school. And I loved that. So from then on I started making the two and a half hour trek out to Regina to attend more of her classes and do one on one coachings with her. What was great was she’d also occasionally bring in casting directors/directors from Vancouver and LA to give workshops. Being able to get in front of those casting directors at that point in time helped take away some of the nerves down the road when I did eventually move to Vancouver and get in the audition room with them.Is your character of London on Lifetime’s hit dramedy “UnREAL” similar to you?There are definitely aspects of her character that are similar. She’s very sure of what she stands for and isn’t someone you can easily convince to stray from her beliefs. She’ll speak up for herself if she’s not okay with a certain situation. That’s the way I am too. Advertisement Lifetime’s hit breakout comedy UnReal is pleasing critics and audiences alike. The show mimics reality television and explores the producing side of it in all its chaos and glory. Because it’s filmed in the Lower Mainland, many local actors are finding guest and recurring roles on the show. It was even renewed for a third season prior to its second season debut.Sunita Prasad is a Vancouver-based actor who landed the role of London this season, she plays a conservative contestant on the fake dating show setting. We chatted with Sunita to learn more about her acting career and work she’s done:How did you first pursue acting in Saskatoon before moving to Vancouver?
