Two thousand South Sudanese Christians confirmed in just eight days

Rev. Moses Deng Bol told ACNS that the confirmations were done over eight days during a tour of his diocese that covers two out of the 10 states of South Sudan and measures more than 13,000 square kilometers (8078 square miles).“These are very serious Christians and most of the them are adults who have became Christians for the first time in their lives,” he said. “So they’re not just children of Christian parents.”The bishop disagreed with some religious educators who believe that by withholding confirmation until later in life, young people are kept involved in the life of the church for a longer period of time.He equated such teaching to holding young people captive in order for them to receive grace from God. “How do we justify this? This attitude surely has a negative impact on young people and their experience of God and church,” he said. “Is this the God we want them to know? One who withholds grace until we’ve jumped through all the hoops that our church tells us we have to jump through?”Deng said that children cannot be expected to have a positive memory or experience of the church or God later in their lives “if we keep dangling the sacrament over their heads like a carrot.”Deng said it was crucial for the newly confirmed to have “a very intensive discipleship to really understand what being a follower of Christ means in their daily lives.”However, he highlighted some of the challenges that the diocese faces in ministry, evangelizing and Christian teaching. “There are only 65 priests, most of whom have very little or no theological education at all,” he said. “This is the reason why my priority number one is theological training for priests and evangelists.”Deng also said despite the large numbers, they have enough churches for the new Christians. “We have sufficient churches [but] most of them are under-tree churches and others built out of mud and grass thatch.”The bishop also bemoaned the poor state of the roads saying it was a real challenge to access remote areas of his diocese. “The people confirmed in various parishes did not just come from that parish alone,” he revealed. “Many of them came from far away parishes and some of them had to walk for two days in order to come to the main parish where I was.”Deng said one benefit of embarking on such diocese-wide tours was that he was also able to undertake other tasks including training clergy, lay readers, Mothers’ Union leaders and evangelists.“During this period, I got to have meetings with the clergy because we don’t get to meet often due to long distances and lack of transport,” he said. “I also had a chance to dedicate two concrete church buildings that were constructed in partnership with Samaritan’s Purse.”The Episcopal Church of Sudan covers the two countries of Sudan and South Sudan. It comprises 28 dioceses that stretch many thousands of miles.

Thought to be from the 1920s or 30s, this shows a ‘hundred-weight’ (100lb or 45kg) of Peace Babies listed for sale in ‘4lb wood boxes’, for the grand total of 68 shillings. This would be the equivalent of £139.60 in today’s money.Beth Miles, Marketing and Fundraising Director, Help for Heroes, said:“We are delighted that Maynards Bassetts has chosen to commemorate the centenary of the First World War by supporting the heroes of today. It has been fascinating to learn about the history behind such a well-loved product, and we are hugely grateful for the difference the money raised will make in Help for Heroes work supporting our wounded, injured and sick members of the armed forces community.” One hundred years on from the end of the First World War, Maynards Bassetts is partnering with Help for Heroes to commemorate its centenary with a limited edition pack of Peace Babies.In celebration of the end of the war in 1918, George Bassett & Co. produced Peace Babies – which would later become Jelly Babies. Maynards Bassetts has now designed a special limited-edition pack of Peace Babies available at Tesco, aiming to raise over £25,000 for Help for Heroes, with the money raised going to help the charity support today’s armed forces and their families.

European court’s expert argues in Google’s favour on search results

first_imgNews News June 25, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 European court’s expert argues in Google’s favour on search results Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes European Court of Justice advocate-general Niilo Jääskinen’s findings, published today, in a legal wrangle between Google and a Spanish citizen, Mario Costeja, over his desire to have certain links expunged from the results of a Google search for his name.Costeja filed a complaint with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) against Google and the newspaper La Vanguardia in March 2012 after discovering that a search for his name yielded links to legal notices in the newspaper about the auction of real estate property seized from him for non-payment of social security contributions.The AEPD rejected Costeja’s complaint against the newspaper on the grounds that “publication of the information was legal and was protected by the right to information” but, with extraordinary inconsistency, upheld his complaint against Google, ordering the search engine to eliminate about 100 links from all future searches for Costeja’s name.Refusing to comply, Google appealed to the European Court of Justice.Produced by the advocate-general at the court’s request, the expert report finds that Google is not responsible for personal data in the web pages to which its search results refer and that data protection agencies cannot demand the withdrawal of links from search engine results unless a publisher has included “exclusion codes.”Jääskinen’s report also finds that the European directive on data protection does not establish a “right to be forgotten” and that such a right cannot be used in an attempt to get search engines to suppress information.“Advocate-general Jääskinen’s analysis and conclusions constitute a significant, logical and coherent advance in the protection of online freedom of information,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Spanish agency’s paradoxical decision, which we already condemned in February, represented a potential danger to media freedom that has just been partially dispelled. We will await the European Court of Justice’s final decision in this case, for which a date has not yet been set.“We hope that this decision will finally convince the Spanish Data Protection Agency and all other similar European agencies not to confuse the necessary protection of privacy with the so-called right to be forgotten, which is the subject of growing interest on the part of many people and poses a serious threat to our right to information.“Trying to rewrite history by suppressing web links or web archives is a Pandora’s box that is best not opened. We strongly urge the European Commission, which is currently examining this issue, to heed advocate-general Jääskinen’s conclusions.”center_img Organisation News RSF_en Follow the news on Spain News SpainEurope – Central Asia SpainEurope – Central Asia December 2, 2020 Find out more RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive last_img read more
