that. To not have knowledge of a burial spot is to deny families the opportunity to visit; to mourn; to move on with their lives. @ctcantwell mum’s testimony is harrowing; her son born healthy at 7lbs 11ozs. She recalls his perfectly formed features. She is entitled to truth 2/3
Not conjecture, nor faux outrage. How can we accept hierarchies of victim; a mother of Bessboro who lost her child suffered just as a mother on our site in Tuam. Afford due respect @rodericogorman + Cabinet. You owe them that much at the very least. 💔😢@danielmloftus

5 Simple Steps to Recruit Volunteers In a Small Church
#church #pastoring #ministry #leadership

The primary calling of the pastor is to equip God’s people to do the work of ministry (Eph 4:11-12).
But what if you can’t find volunteers to do that work, including specific events and ministries?

Should you make a general announcement? Or do one-on-one requests?

Especially in a small church, do both.

Here's a five-step process:
Step 1: Make General Announcements
Use your bulletin, weekly email, Facebook page, Sunday announcements, and so on.

Don’t be surprised if you receive little or no response. You’re not expecting them yet, so if you get any it’s a bonus.

I just spoke (and listened) at #DevEngage2023 conference.

A gathering of bright, thoughtful people grappling with the big questions:



And how to build bonds of #trust between the public in rich and poor countries..

Here are five things I learnt.

A 🧵 Image

👉🏿Talking to the public about supporting aid and development only really works when they feed it’s the right thing to do.

👉🏿Making a foreign policy or a trade argument doesn’t.

#DevEngage2023 Image
2️⃣ TRUST ⛓

👉🏿The public don’t often believe that institutions are going to be able to change things.

👉🏿A charity mindset of helping people isn’t empowering. Better to build bonds of solidarity and learning between people.

Alhamdulillah, after a long wait, the construction of our #Mosque has resumed.
As expected, "Pastors" from a particular church along with neighbors were present and constantly threatening and abusing the constructor verbally and physically.
It is important to note that this is not just a conflict between "Neighbors vs Muslim Students". These pastors from a particular #church group have been leading the protests from the very start, not just "morally" supporting the neighbors.
As these pastors even lead them in official negotiation meetings, this is the primary reason why all our negotiation efforts for peaceful coexistence failed with neighbors. The role of this particular group in this conflict cannot be ignored.

Eight Priorities Of A Healthy Church

Here are eight ways healthy churches prioritize what matters to them. 🧵

#Church #ministry #Jesus
1. People Before Buildings
There are too many churches that remain unwilling to adapt the facility to the needs of the ministry. Healthy churches see facilities as a tool to reach people in Jesus’ name, not as an end in themselves.
2. Generosity Before Budgets
A generous church gives of their money, time, and skills based on the need, not on the budget. Generosity is not about finances, it’s gratefulness turned outward.

Derek Jarman´s "Caravaggio": Chiaroscuro, Baroque and the ashes of Pasolini.
#DerekJarman, was a bold and unapologetic filmmaker and artist, highly influenced by Pier Paolo #Pasolini, whose work he emulated in his career. 1.- Image
@Dexfletch 2.-His films, such as "#Caravaggio," pay homage to Pasolini's aesthetic and thematic concerns, while also reflecting his experiences and perspectives as a #gay artist living in #Thatcher's #Britain.
3.-"Caravaggio" is a visually stunning and thematically rich film that remains a highlight of Jarman's career. It is a meditation on the power of #art to transcend time and space, as well as the ephimeral nature of #fame and #celebrity.

Secularism (1975)
Minority act (1992)

They legalised conversion by article 25

They snatched religious education from Hindus through article 28 but allowed religious education to #muslim and #christian in article 30

They snatched all temples n temple money from Hindu by enacting HRCE Act 1951
They destroyed Hindu families by divorce law, dowry law under Hindu Code Bill but didn't touch muslim Personal Laws. Allowed them polygamy so that they cud keep increasing their population.
Brought Special marriage act in 1954 so that muslim boys can easily marry with Hindu girls

What an exciting first day in #Iraq. It was a great pleasure for me to walk the streets of Old #Baghdad, to see its monuments which testify to the rich history of Iraq and to have direct talks with the Baghdadis. ImageImageImageImage
I especially wanted to go to #AlMutanabbi Street, famous in the Arab world to have long drawn bibliophiles. Its bookstores and its very dynamic life highlight the return of peace and prosperity to #Iraq through culture. #Baghdad ImageImageImage
I spoke with the booksellers and we have the same conviction: culture has a central role for the future of #Iraq. It is an important factor of social cohesion, as well as it is a source of job creation and economic activity. #AlMutanabbi #Baghdad Image

1. The apostle Paul said: "If God is for us, who is against us?"

On this day, exactly 4 years ago, a great historical event took place, in which God was with us, and we were with God! The Orthodox #Church of Ukraine received Tomos from the Ecumenical Patriarch.⬇️
2.The creation of the autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine is a guarantee of our independence.This is the foundation of our spiritual freedom. We broke the ties that tied us to Moscow with its fantasies about Ukraine as the canonical territory of the russian Orthodox Church⬇️
3. And today we have to finish what we started once and for all.
I will not stop thanking the Ecumenical #Patriarch as the spiritual leader of the #Orthodox people, as a global figure who heard our voice and our requests. I am grateful to all Ukrainians who sincerely believed⬇️

1/ To Tithe or Not To Tithe by Kenneth E. Hagin (culled from Midas touch)

From time to time over the years, people have asked me if the practice of tithing is still valid for the Church today. "The New Testament really says very little about it," they say.
2/ "Should pastors and other ministers preach and encourage tithing with so little New Testament information on the subject. Should Christians be bound by the Old Testament Law?"
3/ It is true that there is very little mention of tithing in the New Testament. Two of the Gospels, Matthew and Luke, report the only recorded incident of Jesus saying anything about it. But in this instance, Jesus clearly affirmed His belief in the practice of tithing:

#childabuse: A Nine-Year-Old Girl Set To Give Birth In #Zimbabwe 😭

she is 33 weeks pregnant and expected to give birth by caesarean section this November.
She was just 8 when she fell pregnant, and is being monitored by a team of specialist doctors and nurses owing to the delicate nature of the pregnancy.
She has refused to give police the name
of her abuser though shockingly, her 29-year-old father claimed that the goblins🤷🏾 visited the 9-year-old #girl on the nights only when her mother was away from home and inserted things into her privates. The police believe she's being threatened!

@midgetmummsie The appearance of the smiling child—therefore all is ok is made worse I think in homes or circles where geniality is deemed the norm. Presenting at a school or #church with those smiles hides such pain & fear the child may lose a parent or physical security. #ParentalAlienation/1
@midgetmummsie 2/is certainly a systematic and circular circumstance by facilitator and recipient. When you first come across it all events seem one offs. However over time the mindset of the abuser & understanding their intent to harm the child — while the child smiles in blind trust becomes/3
@midgetmummsie 3/ apparent. We should not be surprised that an aggrieved parent who is rejected by a partner for abuse of a child or self lashes out this way. To suggest alienation — abuse of child and parent does not occur is highly ignorant.Again it is systematic, involves isolation, use /4
