Photo: Bonnie Vculek/ Courtesy of Enid News & EagleEditor’s note: A version of this story ran in March in the Enid News & Eagle. East meets West in a new collaboration between the Russian Orthodox and Episcopal churches in a small city in north central Oklahoma. Members of St. Nino Equal-to-the- Apostles, a mission parish of the Russian Orthodox Church, have begun meeting for monthly worship services in a chapel at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Enid.An expanding serviceThe Russian Orthodox congregation, a mission of St. Benedict Orthodox Church in Oklahoma City, about 80 miles to the southeast, held its first service and fellowship dinner at the Episcopal parish in February.Father Matthew Floyd, mission priest to St. Nino, said having a chapel to host local services expands his opportunities to reach Orthodox faithful who can’t always make the 90-minute drive to Oklahoma City. The chapel time is especially important, Floyd said, for catechumens, people studying for confirmation into the Orthodox faith.“What are things I would have wanted to know when I was entering the church I didn’t get?” Floyd asked. “One of my core goals of my Enid visits is to give the catechumens and inquirers more instruction into those topics, and to also give a more rounded liturgical experience. I think it’s good for people to see and experience the more liturgical services of the church.”‘Right thing to do’Until February, Floyd’s mission congregation of 10-12 worshipers was meeting in the basement of a business owned by one of its members.The Rev. John Toles, rector at St. Matthew’s, said when he learned of the Orthodox mission meeting nearby, he saw it as an opportunity to open the doors of The Episcopal Church to another congregation in the Body of Christ.“Knowing we had space available in the church, we thought we would reach out to St. Nino’s and see if they would like to use it,” Toles said. “A church is not a building, but if our building would provide a more formal space for them to be the church, it was just the right thing to do.”Toles offered Floyd the use of St. Julian’s Chapel, a side chapel the Episcopal congregation uses for Wednesday noon Mass, at no cost. He said there was no concern about the two denominations sharing the same space.“We’re not in competition here,” Toles said. “We oftentimes think we are, but the different churches are not in competition with one another, and this was an opportunity for them to have a place to worship. We are the Body of Christ. That’s what it really comes down to, in all its multiple expressions.”Journey through history Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI The new space-sharing endeavor is not Toles’ first experience with working closely with the Orthodox Church. He has fond memories of working closely with members of the Orthodox faith through a longstanding collaboration between his seminary, Nashotah House, in Nashotah, Wis., and St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Seminary, in Yonkers, N.Y.When Toles received his doctorate, the speaker was Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, a bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church and chairman of the Department of External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate.Floyd also has past experience with the Episcopal Church. After being raised in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), he attended an Episcopal Church in Lexington, Ky., during his last two years of college, before being confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church, then attending the Byzantine Catholic Church in Portland, Ore., and eventually finding his way to the Orthodox Church at St. Antony Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church in 2004.“Somewhere along the way, I got suckered into being a priest,” Floyd said with a laugh.He was ordained in The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in 2014. Floyd half-jokingly refers to his Protestant-Anglican-Catholic-Orthodox progression as “slowly making my way back through history.”That history is one of persecution and flight, going back to the last days of the Russian Revolution and ensuing Soviet persecution of Orthodox Christians and other faith groups. That persecution led to an exodus of Orthodox Christians from Russia.“On the last boat out were the hierarchs who formed what was to become the Russian Church Outside Russia,” Floyd said. “This terrible event ended up helping spread Orthodoxy around the globe and helping to establish Orthodoxy’s contact with the Western world.”Better understandingFloyd said the Orthodox Church in this region has been blessed with assistance in the past, and St. Nino’s is “thankful to St. Matthew’s for providing a nice venue for us to have services.”He said the congregation at St. Benedict in Oklahoma City started out holding services in a chapel at a Catholic school, and Saints Peter and Fevronia Orthodox Church in Kansas City got its start in a Lutheran chapel before purchasing a former Coptic church.“There is a history of other denominations being so kind as to allow Orthodox missions to use their chapels,” Floyd said, “and we’re very thankful to St. Matthew’s for offering this.”Floyd said the collaboration also gives an opportunity for increased dialogue and understanding between the two faith traditions.“It’s always important to be able to speak with others in other traditions in a polite and respectful way,” Floyd said. “We always want to understand and respect each other, but we always maintain our identity.” Tags Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC 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 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Bath, NC Ecumenical & Interreligious Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Knoxville, TN Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector Columbus, GA By James Neal Posted Apr 18, 2019 Floyd said the shared space will enable the St. Nino congregation to continue to grow and to serve those whose search may lead them to the Orthodox Church.“I give thanks to God for opening their doors and allowing us the use of the chapel,” Floyd said. “For a lot of us in missions, we have a special place in our hearts for people who have opened their doors to us, or helped us in any other way.”–James Neal is a parishioner and vestry member at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Enid, Oklahoma.

Today, we’vegot a potential second government shutdown, teachers going on strike, andparents suing their children.Negotiations hit snag as shutdown deadlineapproachesBorder security negotiations have stalled and another government shutdown is in sight, according to the Associated Press. Neither political party can agree on a budget for President Trump’s border wall, but there is also disagreement on the detainment of immigrants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Democrats want ICE to focussolely on dangerous immigrants and limit the number of illegal immigrantsallowed to be held by ICE. Republicans want no limits on the types or numbersof immigrants.The parties have until Feb.15 to make a deal.Minnesota representative’s tweets condemned byboth partiesA Fox News report stated that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) received criticism from both Republicans and Democrats after posting tweets accusing a lobbying group of paying Congress members to support Israel.These tweets came in response to reports that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) threatened to take action against Omar for alleged anti-Semitic comments.Former first daughter ChelseaClinton was among Democrats condemning Omar’s actions, tweeting: “We shouldexpect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures tonot traffic in anti-Semitism.”Omar later responded toClinton and said she would be happy to talk about what to do moving forward.Denver Public Schools teachers to go on strike todayFor the first time in 25 years, Denver Public Schools teachers are going on strike Monday, according to a report by ABC News.For the last 15 months, theDenver Classroom Teachers Association and the Denver Public Schools Districtfor the Professional Compensation System for Teachers have been having ongoingnegotiations on how to improve the current pay scale for teachers.Denver schools will remainopen during the strike, though early childhood education classes will becancelled.Teachers who strike could have their salaries withheld by the district, and may not receive unemployment benefits either.Virginia Lt. Gov. faced possible impeachmentVirginia lawmakers thought about pursuing impeachment of Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, but according to the Associated Press, those talks have slowed.Fairfax has recently beenaccused by two women of sexual assault in the 2000s, and experts said animpeachment would be a first for Virginia. While impeachment was initially pursued by some lawmakers, it was unlikely the process would get far since the state Legislature is set to convene soon.Lawmakers have also said Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring should step down from their roles after scandals of racist past behavior arose. Northam told CBS he will notstep down, nor will he terminate Fairfax or Herring.Artificial intelligence initiative to be launchedMondayAccording to a report by CNN, President Trump is likely to sign an Executive Order to launch the American Artificial Intelligence initiative on Monday.The goal of the initiative isto strengthen the American leadership in AI.

March 11, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two reporters gunned down in Mazatenango Guatemala. Don’t put the Guatemalan press in quarantine! Prensa Libre correspondent Danilo López and Radio Nuevo Mundo correspondent Federico Salazar were gunned down by two men on a motorcycle, who also shot and wounded a third local journalist, Marvin Túnchez. The Suchitepéquez press association said they were shot just “20 metres from a police station.”López had been threatened by several local officials in connection with his critical coverage of a range of issues including mismanagement of public resources. Prensa Libre editor Miguel Angel Méndez Zetina said López had filed a complaint against the mayor of San Lorenzo, one of the department’s municipalities, accusing him of making death threats. Radio Nuevo Mundo director Marvin Robledo said he was not aware of any threats against Salazar.“We urge the authorities to conduct an independent, exhaustive and impartial investigation into this double murder with the aim of bringing the culprits to justice,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We are deeply concerned about the fate of media personnel in Guatemala. Since announcing a protection programme for journalists last November, the government has not provided any information about its policies and the situation is far from improving.”San Filippo added: “The authorities must urgently adopt effective protective measures to guarantee the physical safety of journalists and prevent any further tragedies in 2015, which is likely to be particularly hazardous for media personnel because it is an election year.”Guatemala continues to be very dangerous for journalists and Suchitepéquez is one of the regions where the most incidents have been reported in recent years. TV presenter Nery Morales narrowly escaped a shooting attack in February 2014, while radio reporter Fredy Rodas was badly injured and TV presenter Carlos Alberto Orellana was killed in shootings a week apart in August 2013.Abuses against media personnel – including harassment, threats, intimidation, physical attacks and murder – increased in 2014 in a climate of almost complete impunity that fosters self-censorship.Many journalists restrict their coverage of sensitive subjects such as organized crime and the bribing of government officials for fear of violent reprisals. The fact that they are often targeted by police and judicial officials – the very people who are supposed to be protecting them – makes them feel all the more vulnerable.Guatemala is ranked 129th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

On going through the complete report given by the CJM, Etah and the other material available on record, the Bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamshery came out with the following issues: – Whether a police team is having any authority to use unlawful force while arresting a person who has been assigned for taking law in hands when police tried to arrest him? Can the police be used as an agency to dispossess a person from possession of an immovable property or to restore possession of a property with a person on having a report with allegation of unlawful possession or unlawful dispossession of such person from such property? Whether the administrative authorities including the police authorities are well within their rights to get a person evicted from the premises against whom a decree has been granted by a competent Court, without there being any order in execution proceedings by executing Court? Whether the Advocates Act, 1961 extends any privilege to an advocate for being not taken any coercive action by the police against him, if he is in prescribed robes? The Counsels for the rival parties were directed to address the Court on the issues referred above and thereafter, the petition was listed for further hearing on 02nd February, 2021. Lastly, the Court said that it was not inclined to accept the request made by counsels appearing in the matter, for change of investigating agency. It may be noted that during the last hearing in the matter, the Court had noted that the Uttar Pradesh State Bar Council had sent a sealed envelope to the Court requesting to get the entire matter investigated by some independent agency like Central Bureau of Investigation or Crime Branch of C.I.D. Background of the Case The Allahabad High Court took suo-motu cognizance of this incident and thereafter the Court had sought a complete report of the incident, wherein Rajendra Sharma, a practicing Advocate at Etah was beaten and manhandled by the police and his relatives too were harassed and humiliated. Significantly, the Bar Council of India has already issued a statement condemning the police assault and had urged the Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court and the Chief Justice of India to take suo moto cognizance of the same. The Press Release also stated, “The act of police of Uttar Pradesh is shocking, this cannot be expected from the protectors of Law and Order. The brutality clearly shows that the police personnel of Etah were acting with some planning with some ulterior motive.” While requesting the CJI & CJ of Allahabad High Court to take actions, the BCI had also added that its request was not considered by Uttar Pradesh Government. The SCBA too condemned the police assault while stating, “The brutal assault of a member of our fraternity in Etah in his house when he was with his family is atrocious and unacceptable. It is a gross and calculated action on the part of the police in total contravention of law”, the SCBA commented. “The Supreme Court Bar Association expresses its serious concern on the reprehensible conduct of the police in both these cases and calls upon all concerned authorities to take serious punitive action against all concerned for their atrocious conduct which denigrates and violates the mandate of the Rule of law”, the SCBA statement said in conclusion. Also, taking a serious note of this incident, the High Court Bar Association, Allahabad had sent a Letter requesting the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court to take “suo motu cognizance of the said incident and pass appropriate orders to maintain the law and order situation of the state.” The letter was addressed to Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court and was issued by Mr. Prabha Shankar Mishra, General Secretary, High Court Bar Association, Allahabad, stating, “The way the lawyer and his family members were brutally beaten up by the administration and the police, the advocate community is experiencing a sad feeling and it seems that the advocate community Is the most neglected community of all.” Importantly, the Allahabad High Court last week took on record the report of inquiry, made by the CJM, Etah into the matter. This report was submitted in pursuance to the directions of the Court dated 7.1.2020. In related news, the Allahabad High Court recently dismissed a plea seeking direction to State to introduce a Bill “Advocate Protection Act” for the protection of Advocates practicing in the State. The Bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamshery observed, “We do not find ourselves legally equipped to give any direction for Legislation of any enactment.” This observation came in a plea preferred by one Sunita Sharma and another seeking direction to the Principal Secretary, Law and Justice, Uttar Pradesh to introduce a Bill “Advocate Protection Act”.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
