The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI [Episcopal News Service] The chair of the Washington National Cathedral Chapter, the Rev. James P. Wind, announced Jan. 4 the appointment of the Rev. Francis H. Wade as interim dean of the cathedral. Wade has been called on a part-time basis to focus on spiritual guidance and support to the cathedral during its search and transition to a new dean. Canon Kathleen A. Cox, the cathedral’s executive director and chief operating officer, will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of the cathedral. Wade will take up his new position on Jan. 6, according to a press release.It was also announced today that the Cathedral Chapter has selected Alexander H. Platt to chair the search committee for a new, permanent dean with the goal of calling that individual by the fall of 2012. The Rev. Samuel T. Lloyd III stepped down as cathedral dean in September 2011 to return as priest-in-charge of Boston’s Trinity Church, Copley Square, where he had previously served as rector.“It is a great honor to be entrusted with one of our nation’s most treasured institutions, and it is a joy to be able to do so here in a community I have been a part of for so long,” said Wade, in the release. “The cathedral plays a vital role in welcoming the country to pray, commemorate, celebrate, and mourn. As such, it must serve the millions of Americans of all faiths who turn to it in times of national significance just as ably as it does its local community and congregation.”Wade, a native of West Virginia, has been an ordained Episcopal priest for 45 years, having served as rector of St. Alban’s Parish on the grounds of the cathedral from 1983 until his retirement in 2005. He is an adjunct professor at Virginia Theological Seminary, where he earned his M. Div. and D. Div. degrees, and he has also taught at The General Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous books, including Transforming Scripture, and his sermons and writings have been published extensively, including in a variety of anthologies by Forward Movement Press. Wade is a noted leader in the Episcopal Church, having served in a variety of roles and committees at the church’s triennial General Convention for which he most recently served as chaplain of the 2009 gathering, the release said.“Frank Wade’s long-standing reputation as a preacher and teacher brings experienced leadership to Washington National Cathedral during this time of transition,” said the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of Washington, in the release. “He also is a gifted pastor, who will help bring together the cathedral community, other clergy, volunteer leadership, and staff to continue the cathedral’s mission as a spiritual home for the nation, embodying the Episcopal Church’s expansive and thoughtful understanding of God and passionate commitment to the reconciling ministry of Christ.”Wade will work closely with Budde and Cox, as well as with the Rev. Canon Jan Naylor Cope, cathedral vicar. He will also work closely with the worship team in developing major services of national importance, as needed, lead cathedral worship, and preach regularly, the release said.“On behalf of the Cathedral Chapter we are grateful to Frank Wade for accepting our nomination as interim dean,” said Wind. “We look forward to finding a new leader for the cathedral with the able guidance of Alix Platt while also benefitting from Frank’s stewardship and support.”“The cathedral faces significant challenges going forward, and our next dean must be able to lead us as we work to restore the Cathedral physically while also continuing to expand our mission and programs,” said Cox. “This is an exciting new era for the Cathedral with many great possibilities ahead of us.”According to the release, in addition to Platt, Craig M. McKee, Esq., will serve as vice-chair of the dean’s search committee. McKee is a Chapter member and co-chair of the National Cathedral Association. The other committee members are: John D. Barker, Chapter member; Llewellyn W. Bensfield, member of the Board of Trustees of the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation; Paul Cooney, canon to the ordinary of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington; the Very Rev. Martha J. Horne, former dean of Virginia Theological Seminary; the Rev. Dr. Luis León, rector of St. John’s Church, Lafayette Square in Northwest D.C.; Dr. Eric L. Motley, Chapter member; Wind; and Dorothy M. Woodcock, Chapter member.center_img Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Director of Music Morristown, NJ Comments are closed.

Pelites of the Glen Urquhart serpentinite–metamorphic complex, west of Loch Ness (Anomalous local limestone–pelite successions within the Moine outcrop: III)

first_imgThe c. 6 km2 complex comprises graphitic/pyritic, mainly kyanite-rich pelites, interbanded with metalimestones and invaded by foliated serpentinites. It is enveloped by typically Moinian psammites, semipelites and pelites. Previously regarded as a Lewisian inlier, or as integral to the Moine succession, or as a transitional Moinian–Dalradian or Dalradian–Durness Limestone facies, its allochthonous status is in fact suggested by (1) its singular lithology; (2) its unique association with a large serpentinite; (3) associated sharp and local gravity and magnetic anomalies; (4) a blastomylonitic slide zone separating the complex from its Moine envelope; (5) local and regional petrological differences between pelites of the complex and Moine succession. A previous model, in which muscovite-rich Moine pelites developed by K-metasomatism (‘granitisation’) of kyanite-schists within the complex, via (a) shimmerisation (conversion of kyanite to shimmer aggregate); and (b) coarsening of shimmer aggregate to muscovite, is ruled out by new whole-rock and microprobe data. These suggest shimmerisation was a near-isochemical, small-scale redistribution of alkalis and water [approximately kyanite + biotite + quartz + water = muscovite (shimmer aggregate) + chlorite], and show large compositional differences between shimmer aggregates and coarse muscovites. Rb–Sr isotopic data imply Late Caledonian (c. 459 Ma) metamorphism in the complex, but also imply a significant earlier history for the kyanite-schists. Overall, data not merely invalidate a Glen Urquhart ‘Lewisian inlier’, but also as yet preclude correlation of the complex with the Moine or Dalradian. It is attributed in the interim to a separate lithotectonic unit, the ‘Albynian’, which may lie between (or be diachronous with) some part of the Moinian or Dalradian successions.last_img read more

Two runs is enough for LA Dodgers to beat San Diego Padres

first_img“I told him that I’ve been a horse in Atlanta,” Wood said. “I said, ‘if you just have that faith in me, more times than not hopefully I’ll be able to reward you.’ Fortunately enough I was able to do it tonight.”Wood allowed three singles and walked four, but the Padres did not get a runner past second base. Wood is 3-3 with a 3.43 earned-run average in seven starts since the Dodgers acquired him in the three-team, 13-player trade from the Atlanta Braves.When Mattingly removed Wood in the seventh inning of the Dodgers’ game in Cincinnati on Aug. 14, Wood didn’t react well. He threw his glove angrily down a tunnel leading from the dugout and didn’t address the matter after the game.“I think we’ve seen that when he’s with Atlanta,” Mattingly said of Wood. “There’s been a couple games where we had him in trouble and he just hangs in there. There were a few games where we didn’t think he was coming back out and he did. That competitiveness is always there.”The brisk, low-scoring game was a stunning turnabout one day after the two teams combined for eight home runs. The Dodgers had scored seven runs on Thursday and eight on Friday. Saturday, they only needed two: on back-to-back doubles by Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford in the fourth inning, and an RBI single by Joc Pederson to drive in Ethier in the eighth.Ethier finished 3 for 4 in his first action since missing two straight games with a bruised right knee. The right fielder also made a sliding catch to rob Austin Hedges in the second inning.Chris Hatcher pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning and has a 1.74 ERA in 10 appearances since he was activated from the 60-day disabled list. Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 29th save of the season.The two teams close out the four-game series Sunday. The San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies earlier in the day so the Dodgers maintained their season-high 7 1/2-game lead in the National League West.Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal went 0 for 3, extending his streak of at-bats without a hit to 33. He is likely to get a day off Sunday, a day game in San Diego.“He has the ability and we believe in him,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said of Grandal. “It’s there, it’s just a matter of him finding it again. We’re looking more than that (offense) out of that position you’re looking for all parts of it — blocking, defense, the whole thing.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img SAN DIEGO >> Alex Wood began the season with the Atlanta Braves and did not begin it well. After his first seven starts, the 24-year-old left-hander had a 4.28 earned-run average and only one win to show for his efforts.Then, in the middle of May, Wood seemed to find his groove. He began pitching deeper into games, throwing at least seven innings in six of his next 12 starts. He lowered his ERA to 3.54. Then he was traded to the Dodgers.For his first month in a Dodger uniform, Wood had not been allowed to complete seven innings. That changed when Wood dominated the San Diego Padres without allowing a run in the Dodgers’ 2-0 victory at Petco Park.Wood didn’t have to ask Don Mattingly to stay in the game at any point Saturday, even when he was due to bat leading off the seventh inning with the Dodgers nursing a 1-run lead. He had already done so in a private meeting recently.last_img read more
