Episcopal church converted to emergency response hub after deadly California…

first_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Tags A California National Guard Humvee is parked outside All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Montecito, California, where the church was being used this week as a triage center for paramedics and as an evacuation site by the National Guard. Photo: All Saints[Episcopal News Service] Sunday worship services at All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church proceeded as scheduled on Jan. 7, as a storm loomed in the forecast.Since then, deadly mudslides and flooding have turned life upside-down in Montecito, California. At least 17 people are dead, and this tight-knit oceanside community south of central Santa Barbara is under a mandatory evacuation order as emergency crews search for survivors and victims, restore utilities and begin cleaning up the mud and debris that damaged and destroyed homes in their path.All Saints was spared the worst of the damage but has no power or phone service, and the natural gas was shut off to allow repair crews to begin their work, said Sheri Benninghoven, a parishioner who has led communication efforts for the congregation. The parish’s school is closed, and worship services are canceled until further notice.The work of the Lord continued this week, however, as the church grounds became a triage center for people injured in the disaster, and Benninghoven said church leaders estimated hundreds of people descended on the church during the heart of the emergency – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – seeking medical help and, eventually, evacuation assistance from the California National Guard, which staged operations from All Saints.“I think we’re all somewhat in shock. I think a lot of people are doing things based on adrenaline,” Benninghoven told Episcopal News Service by phone. “This is stunning and remarkable for everybody. This community has been hit really, really hard, and we will always think back to this week and no one will ever be the same.”Authorities issued the first of the evacuation orders for parts of Montecito on Jan. 7 anticipating the rains that posed a thread of mudslides from the water cascading down the mountainside on the northern edge of this unincorporated community of about 9,000 people. The threat of devastation was heightened this winter because of the damage done by the Thomas Fire, which last year grew to become the largest wildfire in California’s history.The fire stopped short of Montecito, but with the ground cover in the higher elevations cleared and charred by the blaze, conditions were ripe for disaster when rain started falling Jan. 8 and early Jan. 9.Before sunrise Jan. 9, authorities started receiving 911 calls from Montecito residents trapped in their homes by the mud flows, Benninghoven said, and since All Saints’ neighborhood was on the south side of Highway 101 and out of the path of the flows, it became a gathering place for first responders and victims.“Those rescuers couldn’t get those victims outside the area, so they brought them down to All Saints,” she said.First responders gather at All Saints-by-the-Sea, which served as a temporary triage center for residents of Montecito, California, who were injured in the mudslides. Photo: All SaintsThe Rev. Aimee Eyer-Delevett, the rector, lives on the grounds with her wife, and they began early Jan. 9 assisting evacuees. They opened the parish hall as a place for residents to rest and clean themselves up. The church had some food in a fridge, and they boiled water for coffee.The injured were taken to the nave of the church to be attended to by paramedics. Helicopters were able to land on church grounds and take those who were severely injured to a hospital in Santa Barbara.Because people living near the church were isolated and could not get to safe places, the church became “a safe place and a rallying place” for those people, said the Rev. Michael Bamberger, a member of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Partners in Response team and the disaster coordinator for the Diocese of Los Angeles.A doctor happens to live in a rental house on the church campus, and she was called in to help treat people.“God puts people in the places that they’re supposed to be,” Benninghoven said.

Benninghoven, safe at her home in Santa Barbara, took the lead in posting information and updates for the congregation on its website and Facebook page and through regular emails to parishioners.She and other church leaders also reached out to residents in the neighborhood, asking them to help any way they could, and dozens of them showed up at the church with food, blankets and clothes.“You just want to cry,” Benninghoven said. “It was really just remarkable. It touches your heart. … They were serving as God’s hands and feet. It’s what we learn about on Sundays, and they just knew it was what their job was on this particular day.”The National Guard arrived late Wednesday to facilitate a new mandatory evacuation for the whole community, Benninghoven said.Residents of Montecito, California, prepare to climb into a military vehicle as part of evacuations after mudslides devastated the community next to Santa Barbara. Photo: All SaintsResidents at All Saints loaded onto military transport vehicles and were taken about four miles northwest to a shopping center in Santa Barbara, from which they could then proceed to a Red Cross shelter at Santa Barbara City College or find their own temporary accommodations.Eyer-Delevett and her wife left to stay at a home in Santa Barbara, and other church leaders also have followed the order to evacuate. They left the parish hall open for some neighbors who chose not to flee, but otherwise, church operations have shut down since the National Guard wrapped up its evacuations from All Saints late Jan. 11.The evacuation order is expected to be in effect for one or two weeks, but the church is hoping to reopen sooner, once Highway 101 is cleared.The congregation remains active from a distance. Parishioners are invited to attend Sunday services on Jan. 14 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara if they are on that side of Montecito. Any parishioners who are on the opposite side of Montecito are invited to a home church service hosted by All Saints’ associate rector, the Rev. Victoria Kirk Mouradian.Church leaders also are looking ahead to providing pastoral care for victims of the mudslides, many of whom lost their homes. Of the 17 fatalities, none has been identified as an All Saints parishioner, though it was not yet possible to determine if parishioners are among the five unidentified people who authorities said were still missing as of Jan. 12.Benninghoven said the congregation, with about 1,000 members, has been assembling lists with the location of as many as they can. The congregation is “cautiously optimistic” that all will be confirmed alive, she said, but parishioners are still profoundly affected by the tragedy of so many dead neighbors. “That is hitting everybody very, very hard,” Benninghoven said.Bamberger said the diocese, with the help of Episcopal Relief & Development, is supporting relief efforts in the area. And they are looking toward what will be a long recovery time. In late February, clergy and lay leaders in the fire- and flood-affected areas will meet for a day of “spiritual debriefing,” Bamberger said.Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce, Episcopal Relief & Development Preparedness Training Coordinator Lura Steele, and the Rev. Russ Oechsel, Diocese of Texas archdeacon and a member of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Partners in Response team, will help with the day. Participants will also discuss pastoral care during long-term recovery.

The average annual income in 2016 was $138,872, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and it is home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and actor Jeff Bridges. However, the Rev. Melissa McCarthy, Los Angeles canon to the ordinary, told Episcopal News Service via telephone early on Jan. 12 that disasters such as this touch everyone.Some people have more resources, including insurance, but “nothing can spare them from the emotional trauma of this,” McCarthy said.Mud covers the yard and cakes the side of a home in Montecito, California, after rains sent rivers of dirt and debris down the mountainside and into the community on Jan. 9. Photo: All SaintsAnd, Montecito has workers in its restaurants and residents’ homes who “when their town shuts down, they are the people who suffer.”McCarthy said the diocese especially wants to help the most vulnerable people in the aftermath of the floods. They include homeless people, the working poor (including some clergy members, she said) who live paycheck to paycheck, and “anybody who is afraid to go ask for resources and help, particularly undocumented people.”Bamberger said the diocese is continuing to use an assets-based community development approach for discerning a congregation’s potential ministries to meet the needs of its surrounding communities, including after disasters. They ask, “Where is the church already being the church, doing the work of the church, and how can we help them be even more effective?”– The Rev.

In the small town of Rijssen 2by4-architects designed the new healthcare and housing complex ‘Eltheto’ for elderly people. Until recently elderly people were seen as a group that functions outside of modern society and are only in need of care. The contemporary healthcare centers and housing for elderly people are still designed according to his idea. Over the past decennia this resulted in a range of introvert buildings where the main focus is healthcare instead of the quality of life itself.Save this picture!Diagram 2For Eltheto 2by4-architects inverted this concept and separated the housing and healthcare program. The housing program functions like a particular housing program that one would find in a suburb. They are open and social housing blocks where the main focus is on the quality of life and staying part of the social context. For the less independent inhabitants the housing program is adjusted according to their needs, but still the focus on quality of life remains.

Share Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe architecture of the different housing blocks reflects if they are for the more independent elderly, the social orientated elderly or elderly in need of health care. Although this results into different volumes all the blocks are clearly part of the same family that together with the public space form an integrated social place to live for the next generation of elderly.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe focus of the design comes from a life style research that looks at the different needs and characteristics of elderly. Part of the research indicates that if elderly have to move away from their life style, in order to receive health care, their life expectancy will decrease. They become less mobile, more dependant and eventually socially isolated. Loneliness has become a major issue among elderly, especially if one of the partners has passed away.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsEltheto’s goal is to keep elderly part of modern life and society by providing the right healthcare and housing that fits their current needs. If their needs will change they are able to receive health care at home or move to one of the other Eltheto buildings that are designed to provide more specialized health care. This way they can stay home longer and when they eventually need to move they’ll stay within the same neighbourhood.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe 4 housing blocks at the Eltheto complex provide housing for independent elderly singles and couples, elderly with Alzheimer, elderly with somatic disabilities and mentally disabled elderly. These 4 housing blocks are situated around several public spaces. The public spaces interact between the housing blocks, the centrally located healthcare centre and the neighbourhood. The public space is owned by the client, a housing corporation and a heath care organization, who want the elderly to use the public space according to their own ideas.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe elderly are stimulated to organize themselves and use the public place for programs like communal gardening, outdoor events and meetings, play games like Pétanque or just sit under one of the trees and enjoy the things happening around them. The public space acquires its green character by its numerous trees and plants, all carefully chosen by colour, shading amount, flowering period and fruit types criteria. All this contributes to the so-called natural healing environment.Save this picture!Diagram 1The communal healthcare centre is located in the centre of the public space and can be seen as the heart of the whole complex. It provides health care services not only for the people living at Eltheto, but also for the neighbourhood. Besides health care the centre incorporates many some public services, such as a restaurant, a library, a shop for daily groceries, a meditation centre, day care, hair salon and numerous activity areas and office spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe centre is accessible directly from the public space in order to strengthen even more the relationship between the indoor and outdoor spaces as well as the overall public character of this modern healthcare complex.

A visit with Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgFrom left, Joe Piette, Mumia Abu-Jamal and Pam Africa, Jan. 8 at Mahonoy SCI, Pa.Prisoner ailing but still fightingMahanoy SCI, Pa. — Philadelphia political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal looks older than he should at 63, but his mind is as sharp as ever. The Uncompromising Minister of Confrontation Pam Africa of the MOVE Organization and I, Workers World newspaper reporter, peppered him with questions for over three hours on Jan. 8. We were in the visitors’ room at Mahanoy State Correctional Institute near Pottsville, Pa.Mumia answered quickly, often with a sense of humor.  He displayed an encyclopedic knowledge of legal cases, from his own to that of Terrence Williams and other prisoners whose appeals he has sometimes participated in.At the same time, Mumia is obviously not healthy. He walks slowly, perhaps because his feet are clearly swollen. He wears white corduroy slippers, with his right foot tightly stuffed in to support his heel.  But the slipper on his left foot occasionally falls off because it cannot be stuffed into the slipper.Mumia had exposed himself to ultra violet rays for 90 seconds, followed by a bath, as recommended by Department of Correction doctors, just before he met us.  But his skin looked dry. As we talked, he often scratched the back of his neck, his chest, his leg and other areas.  He cannot sleep because of the constant itching. Parts of his body seem scaly and darker than other areas. When he lifted his pant leg, we saw horribly scarred skin with what appeared to be open sores. He explained that he is not allowed to show these sores when visitors want to take a photo with him.Mumia’s appetite has decreased and he has lost a little weight. After a couple of hours, his right leg suddenly stiffened. He said he felt pain behind his right knee, which subsided after about 15 minutes. Pam Africa said that also happened during her last visit. He coughed several times, each time complaining of pain on the right side of his lower rib cage or below it.Yet Mumia was in a good mood, despite his many ailments. At one point, in the middle of a spirited discussion about Harriet Tubman, all three of us broke out singing a chorus of the civil rights song, “Ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around!”.Demand health care for Mumia!Mumia has been unjustly imprisoned for 36 years, 30 of them in solitary confinement on death row. The DOC’s continuing failure to effectively treat his severe skin ailment amounts to nothing less than torture. It is one more reason he should be released from prison immediately.In the meantime, supporters are asked to call three people:— SCI Mahanoy Superintendent Theresa DelBalso: 570-773-2158— Pennsylvania Secretary of Corrections John E. Wetzel:717-728-4109— Pennsylvania Department of Health Acting Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine: 717-787-9857Callers should demand that Mumia be taken to an independent medical facility, such as Geisinger Hospital, where he was taken after collapsing in 2015. The facility has the expertise to provide a thorough, hands-on diagnostic evaluation and supervised patient care.If the Department of Health claims it has no jurisdiction over the DOC, remind them that their “mission is to promote healthy lifestyles, prevent injury and disease, and to assure the safe delivery of quality health care for all commonwealth citizens.”  That should include prisoners, too.Campaign participants include International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, International Action Center, Free Mumia Abu-Jamal (NYC), Campaign to Bring Mumia Home and Educators for Mumia.For more information, contact [email protected] or call 215-724-1618.

Splash pad grant gets go ahead

first_imgLatest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “The council might want to consider an asphalt walking trail at some point in time,” Thomas said. “The plan for the park includes four picnic tables and there is the possibility that a Brundidge civic organization would donate benches for the park.”If the grant is awarded by ADECA, the city will supply a cash match of $258,068 plus $117,497 in in-kind services. Cornelius and Kimberly Griffin have pledged $50,000 to the project, fi the grant is awarded.City officials originally said $100,000 would come from private investors, and the council had planned to vote on the grant application June 21 but delayed until Tuesday to allow time to confirm the private investment.Thomas said it probably would be as late as the Spring 2017 before the construction phase could begin. “Because the splash pad is seasonal, I would think it would have first priority in the construction plans,” he said. Skip The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Council Members Betty Baxter, District 1; Arthur Lee Griffin, District 2; and Mayor Jimmy Ramage all voted in favor of the motion. Margaret Ross, District 3, voted no. Steven Coleman, District 5, was absent from the meeting.City Manager Britt Thomas had discussed the project with the council and presented two funding options for the park. One option included rubber safety surfacing for the playground equipment. The other did not.
