Peter Stephens | Saturday, 5th December, 2020 High-yielding dividend shares could offer a generous passive income relative to other mainstream assets. Low interest rates mean that the returns on cash and bonds are low, while high house prices may limit yields on property.Furthermore, high-yielding dividend shares may offer opportunities for income growth over the long run as the economy’s performance improves. Their high yields may also suggest that they offer good value for money after the 2020 stock market crash.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…High-yielding dividend shares can offer a generous passive incomeWith interest rates currently at low levels, there are more limited opportunities to make a passive income than there have been in the past. Previously, many investors have relied on cash or bonds to provide an income. However, they currently offer very disappointing returns in many cases. In fact, it may prove difficult to obtain an income return that is above inflation from those asset classes.Furthermore, relatively high house prices mean that the yields on property may be low. Alongside the risk of buying property directly, such as difficulties diversifying, and the large amount of capital it requires, buying high-yielding dividend shares for a passive income could be a more attractive opportunity.Dividend growth opportunitiesAs well as a generous passive income today, high-yielding dividend shares could produce growth opportunities in the coming years. The economic outlook is currently challenging, which may mean that dividend growth is somewhat limited in the near term. However, over the long run, the prospects for the world economy could improve.Fiscal and monetary policy stimulus in many of the world’s major economies could have a positive impact on the operating environment for many businesses. This may mean that they pay larger dividends to their shareholders, thereby increasing their income investing appeal relative to other mainstream assets. This could make them increasingly popular among a broader range of investors, and could contribute to capital appreciation over the coming years.Low valuations may lead to high capital returnsHigh-yielding dividend shares could offer more than just a passive income. Their lofty yields suggest, in many cases, that they offer wide margins of safety. Investor sentiment has improved significantly since earlier this year. However, some stocks trade at low prices, which could mean that they offer recovery potential in the coming years as market conditions and investor confidence towards risky assets improves.Certainly, there are risks ahead for high-yielding dividend shares. Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic may mean that investor sentiment is weak and share prices fall in the near term. However, with a lack of income opportunities available elsewhere and the stock market having a solid track record of recovering from even its very worst declines, the total returns on offer from dividend stocks could be relatively attractive over the long run.

Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Bob McCloskey says: Comments (5) Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby addresses the Church of England’s General Synod, meeting in York July 8, during a debate on the next steps towards enabling women to become bishops. (C) Keith Blundy / Aegies Associates[Episcopal News Service] The Church of England’s General Synod, meeting in York, has resumed the debate on women bishops, calling for the creation of a steering committee that would prepare draft legislation in time for synod’s next meeting in November.A motion passed July 8 also asks that a draft Act of Synod, or draft declaration, making provisions for those who as a matter of theological conviction are unable to receive the ministry of women bishops, be prepared for synod’s February 2014 meeting. The motion passed with 319 voting in favor, 84 against and 22 abstentions.The July 6-9 sessions are the first time synod has met since last November, when previous legislation to enable women to become bishops narrowly failed to secure the required majority of votes in all three houses (laity, clergy and bishops), despite a 73 percent majority overall. The legislation failed in the House of Laity by six votes.Since that vote, the church’s House of Bishops has met three times in an attempt to work out a swift and effective plan for women to become bishops. A working group, established last December by the House of Bishops, prepared a report in which it set out four possible options for the shape of the new legislation. The bishops, meeting in May, decided to recommend “Option One,” as “the simplest possible legislation” to make it lawful for women to become bishops.(A report from the House of Bishops and the working group to General Synod is available here.The synod accepted two of nine proposed amendments, that were debated on July 8.One amendment put forth by Bishop Trevor Willmott of the Diocese of Dover calls for the inclusion of a “mandatory grievance procedure for parishes in which diocesan bishops are required to participate.”Willmott’s amendment is likely to appease some traditionalists who, during the July 8 debate, said that Option One actually made fewer provisions than would have been available under the previous legislation that failed last November. Supporters of the motion said they were eager for the legislation to proceed without delay to enable women to become bishops by 2015 at the earliest.The other carried amendment, proposed by Keith Malcouronne, a lay synod member from the Diocese of Guildford, urges that “the process of facilitated conversations continue to be used at significant points in the formulation and consideration of the draft legislation.”On Saturday, July 6, facilitated small-group conversations provided synod members with an opportunity to engage in reflection and discussion on the topic of women in the episcopate. Many synod members said the conversations had proved to be a helpful as they prepared for the July 8 debate and vote.The July 8 legislation, which was drafted by the House of Bishops during its May meeting, reaffirmed its commitment to admitting women to the episcopate “as a matter of urgency.”Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby reminded the synod that “this is not about whether but about how … The approach before us is a radical way forward…provides the possibility of building trust, creates space for imagination,” and commits “to ordaining women on exactly the same basis as men and both flourishing together in all parts of the church.”Bishop Nigel Stock of the Diocese of St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich served as chair of the working group that recommended the four options.Ahead of a five-hour debate, he said synod needed to remember that the vote does not represent the final stage for decisions. Rather it will “provide a framework for further creativity.”He said two rounds of facilitated conversations held earlier this year that included many Church of England members with differing viewpoints had played a major role in informing the bishops’ legislation proposed to synod.A majority of the house favored Option One for its clarity and simplicity, he said.Stock also acknowledged there had been “profound mystification and unhappiness” to last November’s decision, and therefore agreed that it was important to get the steering committee set up this month “to ensure that we can complete all stages in 2015.”Bishop Pete Broadbent of the Diocese of Willesden received prolonged applause when he suggested a new process by which synod would forgo the need to have a second committee which could revise the steering committee’s proposal before it gets presented to synod.He said the steering committee might include more people than is currently proposed but that that group would be “given the chance to go away in facilitated discussion and come out with legislation that has universal approval from all there. It’s a risky strategy as there may be people who say I can’t do this…[but] it’s a different way of framing what we do and it might just work.”Broadbent said that the revision committee had been “the toxic part of the process last time,” saying that it is there for nitpicking. With his proposal, the legislation would come straight to revision stage in synod with the full support and ownership of the steering committee. “That makes the moral authority of something that comes to synod much stronger than it usually does,” he said. “Let’s reframe how we do it…and we might avoid the train crash.”Several subsequent speakers, including Welby, offered their support for Broadbent’s proposal.Bishop Christopher Lowson of the Diocese of Lincoln said that many people were “destabilized by the action in November. The question I’ve been pondering was how God was present during a bitter disappointment. Rather than be angry…we’d do better to look for God’s providence in the process…The grace of God is available to us as we work together for his will…I hope we can work together to begin the journey again but in a different way… It’s a big task because there have been years of suspicion…In the end we shall be in a better place…with an ordained ministry that can be celebrated by all…It will build our capacity to manage diversity with respect.”The Rev. Roderick Thomas of the Diocese of Exeter said that he was speaking for the majority of evangelicals in saying that he did not want to find “ourselves in the position we were in last November again. We do not want to have to block the clear will of the majority if this synod and church to see women bishops in place.”Thomas said that during one of the facilitated discussions in which he’d participated earlier this year “we agreed that any future legislation should be simpler and sensitive. But this option has none of this. There isn’t the scope for going more widely. If we pass the motion as stands…then we will not have achieved that objective of mutual flourishing, because instead of allowing people of my integrity to flourish in the church there will be a sense of gnawing anxiety on our part. Ask synod not to start us down a track that is going to lead to confrontation. We want to enable you to vote in legislation, and that will only be done by passing one of the helpful amendments that opens up the opportunity on the face of the measure and in the canons.”The Rev. Karen Hutchinson of the Diocese of Guildford said that she supported Option One unamended because she said it feels like a pre-nuptial agreement in making provisions in case something fails. “This is not only a diversion from our work as witness to the love of God but has the potential to cause more damage to out relationships,” she said. “I want to remain part of the same church with those who do not recognize my ministry. That is not easy…but by the grace of God it is possible to love each other even when we disagree…Please let us put our energy into building relationships that will sustain us in the journey ahead…This is a chance for a fresh start, a chance to work in a different, more relational way, which will be far, far healthier.”Meanwhile, Anthony Berry, a lay member from the Diocese of Chester, objected that of the nine speakers who’d already been called to the podium, only one was a woman.Twenty-seven year old Rebecca Swinson, an ex-officio member of synod and a member of the Church of England’s Archbishops’ Council, said that “women as priests for me is normal, it’s not new.”“I’ve been listening to you all wrangling over this for 27 years,” she said, although she admitted she’d not paid much attention when she was a one year old. “Option One is the easiest thing for me to explain in the pub. It offers quite a good opportunity for those of us who are perhaps not as embedded in the debate…We do need to have something that isn’t as based in law…Finally, I hope that my children will hear a different normality to me and they will not hear the words ‘women bishops’ again because they will see them.”The full text of the final resolution passed July 8 by the Church of England’s General Synod follows.‘That this Synod:(a) reaffirm its commitment to admitting women to the episcopate as a matter of urgency;(b) instruct the Appointments Committee to appoint this month a Steering Committee to be in charge of the draft legislation required to that end;(c) instruct the Business Committee to arrange for the First Consideration stage for that draft legislation to be taken at the November 2013 group of sessions, so that the subsequent stages can follow the timetable set out in paragraph 141 of the annex to GS 1886; and(d) instruct the Steering Committee to prepare the draft legislation on the basis described in paragraphs 79-88 of the annex to GS 1886 as ‘option one’ with the addition of a mandatory grievance procedure for parishes in which diocesan bishops are required to participate and invite the House of Bishops to bring to the Synod for consideration at the February 2014 group of sessions a draft Act of Synod or draft declaration to be made by the House to accompany the draft legislation.’(e) urge that “the process of facilitated conversations continue to be used at significant points in the formulation and consideration of the draft legislation.”History of women’s ordained ministryIn July 2005, 13 years after agreeing to ordain female priests, the General Synod began its steady course toward allowing them to become bishops when it passed a motion to remove the legal obstacles to ordaining women as bishops.In July 2006, the synod called for the practical and legislative arrangements of admitting women to the episcopate to be explored. It also called for the formation of a legislative drafting group to prepare a draft measure and amending canon necessary to remove the legal obstacles.At its July 2008 group of sessions, synod agreed that it was the “wish of its majority … for women to be admitted to the episcopate” and affirmed that “special arrangements be available, within the existing structures of the Church of England, for those who as a matter of theological conviction will not be able to receive the ministry of women as bishops or priests.”General Synod voted in February 2009 to send a draft measure on women becoming bishops to a revision committee so it could rework the legislation.The revision committee met 16 times beginning in May 2009 and considered 114 submissions from synod members and a further 183 submissions from others. In May 2010, the committee published a 142-page report, which offered a detailed analysis of the draft legislation in time for the July 2010 synod debate and vote.The July 2010 synod backed legislation that paved the way for women to become bishops and referred the measure to diocesan synods for their consideration. A majority of diocesan synods needed to approve the measure for it to return to General Synod.From July 2010 to February 2012, 42 of the 44 diocesan synods throughout England approved the legislation supporting female bishops.The February 2012 General Synod rejected a bid to provide greater concessions for those opposed to female bishops. Those concessions essentially were an amendment to the legislation that would have enabled two bishops to exercise episcopal functions within the same jurisdiction by way of “co-ordinating” their ministries.On Nov. 20, 2012, General Synod rejected legislation that would have enabled women to become bishops. The legislation, called a measure, required a two-thirds majority in all three houses of laity, clergy and bishops at General Synod, the church’s main governing body meeting at Church House in Westminster. The measure passed the houses of bishops and clergy, but failed in the House of Laity by 6 votes. The laity voted 132 in favor, 74 against, with 0 abstentions; clergy 148 in favor, 45 against, with 0 abstentions; and bishops 44 in favor, 3 against, with 2 abstentions.The long path towards accepting women’s ordained ministry in the Anglican Communion began in 1920 when the Lambeth Conference called (via Resolutions 47-52) for the diaconate of women to be restored “formally and canonically,” adding that it should be recognized throughout the communion.The first female priest in the communion, the Rev. Li Tim-Oi, was ordained in Hong Kong in 1944. Due to outside pressure, she resigned her license, but not her holy orders, following World War II. In 1971, the Rev. Jane Hwang and the Rev. Joyce Bennett were ordained priests in the Diocese of Hong Kong, though their ministries were not recognized in many parts of the Anglican Communion.In 1974, there was an “irregular” ordination of 11 women in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, which officially authorized women’s priestly ordination two years later.Bishop Barbara Harris, now retired, was elected bishop suffragan of Massachusetts in 1988 and became the Anglican Communion’s first female bishop after her consecration and ordination in 1989.The Rt. Rev. Penelope Jamieson made history in 1989 when she was elected bishop of the Diocese of Dunedin, New Zealand, and became the first woman to serve as a diocesan bishop in the Anglican Communion.The Rt. Rev. Mary Adelia McLeod, who was ordained a priest in 1980, was consecrated in 1993 as bishop of the Diocese of Vermont, becoming the first female diocesan bishop in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church. She retired in 2001.The Rt. Rev. Canon Nerva Cot Aguilera became the first female Anglican bishop in Latin America when she was consecrated bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Church of Cuba in June 2007.The Rev. Ellinah Ntombi Wamukoya on Nov. 17, 2012 was ordained as bishop of Swaziland and became the first female bishop in any of the 12 African Anglican provinces.The Church of England opened the priesthood to women in November 1992, five years after women first were ordained to the diaconate. More than 5,000 women have been ordained as priests in England since 1994 and today they represent nearly 40 percent of all clergy.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Even in TEC we do not need to have General Convention putting the entire life of the Church up on the chopping/tinkering block every 3 years. Perhaps at one time – in days of limited travel/communication it made sense – but now there is truly no reason for Convention to meet any more often than every 5-6 years. Most – except those who live to go to it – dread its coming because its a festival of Type A personalities who all want their moment to set things aright. Meanwhile, back in the pew we are shrinking down past 680,000 ASA and there is no coherent strategy demanded or placed to deal with it. Our problem is not organization. The problem of this Foreign & Domestic Mission Society is too much energy-consuming structure that agendas a wish list other than to take the message of Christ and Him crucified to 300 million people.

News Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara April 15, 2021 Find out more December 7, 2018 After long jail term, Moroccan journalist hit by heavy damages award RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Morocco’s judicial harassment of the journalist Taoufik Bouachrine, who was ordered to pay 1.4 million dirhams (130,000 euros) in libel damages to two government ministers on appeal yesterday. Last month, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison on sexual assault charges. April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more The publisher of the Arabic-language daily Akhbar al-Youm, Bouachrine was originally ordered to pay 450,000 dirhams (45,000 euros) in damages for claiming that the agriculture and economy ministers changed an article in the 2016 finance law for their own personal benefit. Yesterday’s ruling tripled the amount. The ministers filed the suit in 2015.“We condemn the judicial harassment to which Taoufik Bouachrine is being subjected,” RSF said. “The amount of damages he has been ordered to pay is out of all proportion and shows that the Moroccan authorities are bent on throttling Akhbar al Yaoum and maintaining the pressure on Bouachrine.”Bouachrine is the subject of other prosecutions including the sexual assault case in which he was given the 12-year sentence in November. He was also ordered to pay each of the eight victims compensation ranging from 100,000 to 500,000 dirhams (10,000 to 50,000 euros). Bouachrine has always denied the assault allegations and, as RSF noted last month, many doubts surround the verdict.Morocco is ranked 135th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

View post tag: Naval USA: Guantanmo Raises Thousands to Benefit Combined Federal Campaign Training & Education January 18, 2013 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) representatives at Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, finalized total contributions raised for this year’s fund drive Jan. 15.Through a combined effort, the installation donated a total of $33,380 toward charities and support organizations associated with CFC.“CFC allows all military and Department of Defense (DoD) employees to give donations to the charities of their choice,” said Chief Gunner’s Mate Derrick Abson, NS Guantanamo Bay CFC Overseas community area project officer. “It allows us to help those in need. It allows us to support organizations that find cures for diseases, feed the hungry, house those displaced by disaster, and support our veterans and many other worthy causes.”The 2012 CFC began Sept. 17 and ended Dec. 13. More than 30 representatives from the installation’s U.S. Naval Hospital, Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay, and numerous tenant commands assisted with collecting donations from charitable community members.“This year’s goal was to surpass last year’s total which was $28,000, and together we did it,” said Abson. “For a base this size, $33,380 is a great dollar amount raised. With our contact rate of 100 percent, the word really got out and people were stepping to the plate and donating. With the assistance and hard work of the CFC representatives, we were able to surpass our goal by $5,000.”According to Abson, the 2012 campaign was successful due to the base’s CFC team contributing hundreds of hours engaging personnel and spreading the word to potential donors.“It was a huge accomplishment to achieve 100 percent contact,” said Abson. “CFC gave us the opportunity to do our part by donating to the less fortunate. Granted, times are hard for lots of us, but for those that could give, they gave and that says a lot about our nation.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 18, 2013 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: Thousands View post tag: Campaign View post tag: Defense View post tag: to View post tag: Defence View post tag: benefit View post tag: Guantanmo View post tag: combined View post tag: Raises View post tag: FEDERAL Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Guantanmo Raises Thousands to Benefit Combined Federal Campaign Share this article
