His duties include working closely with the Bishop, assisting Kat Lehman with content on the Diocesan website, creating and publishing electronic communication, publishing updates on social media platforms, leading and moderating conversations in social media, and reporting on Diocesan events. He takes up these and other duties today, and I am delighted to welcome him to this position. I know that you will uphold and support him in this ministry. He is a parishioner and member of the vestry of St Stephen’s Church in Whitehall.Born April 4, 1989, Adam Bond was raised in northwestern and midwestern Pennsylvania. He is a digital native, someone who has grown up in a world of digital technology such as the Internet, mobile phones and social networking.A member of St. Stephen’s in Whitehall, Adam served on the vestry prior to and following the introduction of a transitional vestry appointed by Bishop Paul to facilitate parish renewal. He continues in that capacity and is involved in many other aspects of parish life and ministry.He is passionate about service to people, especially the poor and disenfranchised, and hopes to contribute toward the growth of social ministries within his parish and in the wider community. Equally passionate about the environment he is interested in furthering the conversation about how we as a church approach in practical ways our stewardship of God’s creation.A deeply curious and intellectually insatiable person, Adam made a concerted study of religion and spirituality while still in high school. “To my surprise,” he says, “what won my mind and heart was not an argument, but my acquaintance and subsequent friendship with a truly holy and compassionate monk. That led me to an overwhelming intuition that Jesus Christ, experienced through the window of this monk’s soul, was the origin of goodness and love.”Adam was “an ardent convert to Roman Catholicism at 16.” He later felt called to ordained ministry and completed two years of preparatory study before a life-threatening illness and a long recovery interrupted his formation.He and his wife, Jennifer, are now Episcopalians. They have two sons: Charles, 2, and Oliver, 3 months.About a year ago, Adam recommenced his education — this time in English Language and Letters.He sums up his self-identity as “a spouse and father, a son and brother, a neighbor and witness, an undergraduate, a writer, a wannabe poet, a follower of Jesus Christ, an Episcopalian, a humanist, an advocate of radical transparency, a pacifist, and an environmentalist.”Adam is grateful for the invitation and opportunity to serve as Missioner for Communication for the people of the Diocese of Bethlehem and commits himself to living God’s love and telling what he “has seen and heard.”center_img Rector Knoxville, TN Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Belleville, IL Press Release Service Tags Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Hopkinsville, KY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Smithfield, NC Posted Jun 18, 2013 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Shreveport, LA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Journalist kidnapped and beaten by uniformed men in Erbil

first_img News Reporters Without Borders today joined the Kurdistan Journalists Union in condemning the abduction yesterday of Nabaz Goran in the northern city of Erbil and the beating he received for several hours before being set free. Goran contributes to several media in Iraq’s Kurdish region.“These practices are unfortunately only too common in Iraq,” the press freedom organisation said. “The authorities have a duty to find a way to put a stop to this kind of criminal activity. As a first step, this means conducting serious investigations in order to identify and punish those responsible.” A freelance contributor to the Media and Halati newspapers and the website, Goran was kidnapped outside the Hotel Dam Dam in Erbil at about 10 p.m. yesterday. His abductors, five men in military uniforms, drove him out of the city, beat him with clubs and hose-pipes and told him to “hold his tongue” before setting him free a few hours later.Goran is known for being outspoken in his criticism of the authorities. Two lawsuits were brought against, but were withdrawn after mediation by the Kurdistan Journalists Union.
