We’re doing the same thing with children, and people are discovering them throughout the text because they’re there.How did you become interested in the stories of children in the Bible?I’m ordained in the United Methodist Church. I worked full time in ministry until I had a dream on June 2, 1996, in which I believe God called me to teach the Bible.Long story short, I got my Ph.D. in 2009 from Yale. The entire time I was doing my Ph.D. research, I knew that I wanted to look at children in the Bible. It really came from an academic interest, realizing that there was a huge lacuna in the field. I love kids, but it wasn’t like I was always a camp counselor or I was a youth pastor. It was very exciting because, throughout my coursework, children cut across the entire Hebrew Bible, which is my field.Another great hope with this work is that I will call attention to struggles that children face within the Bible that are really struggles that children face around the world. For example, this past July I gave a paper in Rome at the international Society of Biblical Literature meeting, and that paper was called “Hardly Happily Ever After: Trafficking of Girls in the Hebrew Bible.” Though those stories are short, they are all there. And my hope is that it will call attention to some of these struggles that millions of girls are dealing with today. A lot of people care about the Bible, and to use the text as a way to show them how we need to care about children in the world, too — I’m hoping (it) can be a powerful vehicle.What are some stories about children in the Bible that people are most familiar with?I think some of the familiar stories are what I would call your “Bible child stars” — you know, Moses in the bulrushes in Exodus Chapter 2. I’m looking at the rest of that chapter: His sister Miriam is also young, and Pharaoh’s daughter is young. There’s a lot of girls that work in the story. We tend not to see them that way because that’s not how they’re often portrayed in various presentations — movies and things — but they really would be girls, teenagers, youth certainly by our standards.So we’re suggesting this really helps to undergird the message of that story because the whole point is the underdogs win. If your main actors are girls, they’re real underdogs in that society. Kids are the ones who are changing everything here.

Image: Creative CommonsSome of the other more famous stories would be that of Joseph in Genesis Chapter 37. He is sold by his brothers into slavery. The text tells us he’s 17 years old, so he’s young. I also think of the story of young Samuel in the temple where he was called by God and he hears God repeatedly when he is there as a child. He becomes one of the great leaders of Israel, but he’s introduced as a child. I think of young Rebekah in Genesis Chapter 24. She is not yet married, so she’s a girl living in her father’s home, and she is instrumental in inviting Abraham’s servants into the home. And then when she leaves to go marry Isaac, she is asked first if she wants to go. She says yes, and then she receives this blessing: “May you be the mother of myriads. May you possess the gates of your foes.” And that is the same blessing that Abraham receives in Genesis Chapter 22. Esther would be very young. The prophet Jeremiah gets a calling as a child. David is also a child when he defeats Goliath.Those are some stories that people might know, but there are a lot of stories that people don’t know. The children are minor characters, not named. What I suggest in my book “Valuable and Vulnerable” is that these minor characters are really key to understanding children’s lives in the biblical world because the minor characters need to function in ways that are consonant with the culture or else they divert your attention, and so we learn what’s consonant with culture.How have Christians traditionally read these stories of children in the Bible or seen children in the Bible?I think they’re really overlooked, for the most part. The first time Jesus speaks in the Bible is as a child. I don’t hear anybody talking about it. I’ve been a churchgoer my whole life. I’m an ordained minister.I think that people are not used to noticing children in the text, and once you start to notice them, you realize they’re all over the Bible, and it’s very exciting.Part of it is how we understand children. Every idea of who is a child is a construct of a particular culture and economic and cultural realities of a certain time and place. Our ideas of who a child is — our Western ideas from the post-Enlightenment Age — are really very romantic. Children are sweet, they’re innocent, they’re carefree. That is not necessarily true. So let’s strip away these ideas, and let’s take a look and see what the text brings forward. Let’s recognize our own biases and clear them out as much as we can to see what the text shows us about children.How does a childist perspective change how one reads those stories?Well, the first thing is I think you notice them and you see the roles they play, and it helps you to appreciate children. It helps me to appreciate children around me — what children do, how children strategize.I also teach a class called Moses, Miriam and More Children of the Bible, and the class is one-third theory, and then the bulk of the class we look at different texts that have to do with the stories of children, and then the final section of the class we bring it to the life of the church — what can we do to recognize children’s contributions and to support them in their own spirituality, in their own learning?We live in a very age-segregated culture. If you’re an academic, for example, and you don’t have children within your family or friend circles, it would be very easy to go through decades of your life without a significant conversation with a child. Not so in the ancient world. In the ancient world, it is age-integrated. There’s no word for privacy in the Hebrew Bible. Everybody is together.How can that deepen or challenge one’s understanding of God?I think it broadens our understanding of God. I think it helps us to seek God in places that we’re not necessarily used to looking.We see that when God chooses a vessel to use in the Bible to liberate people, it’s children. Moses is the savior who brings the people to the Promised Land. Moses comes to us first as a child. Jesus is the savior for Christians. He comes to us first as a child. But we’re not used to looking to children’s contributions even though they’re right there for us in the text. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Hopkinsville, KY Julie Faith Parker. Courtesy photo via RNS[Religion News Service] That’s “childist” biblical scholar — not “childish.”But childist biblical scholar Julie Faith Parker does think adult readers have a lot to learn from the children in the Bible as well as the children around them.Parker, associate professor of biblical studies at The General Theological Seminary of The Episcopal Church in New York City, is one of the pioneering scholars in the field of childist biblical interpretation — a term she helped introduce in biblical studies in the last decade. She defines it as “interpretation that places a child, children, youth or concerns related to young people at the center” — more analogous to “feminist” or “womanist” than to “racist” or “sexist.”“It’s a new field, and it’s really gaining steam quickly,” she said.Parker talked to Religion News Service about what childist biblical interpretation is, where it came from and why it can change not only the way people read the Bible, but also how they engage issues impacting children. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH This interview has been edited for length and clarity.What is childist biblical interpretation?It’s pretty new. The term “childist” itself really was introduced to the field in 2013, and work has been pouring off the presses since then.Scholars are starting to look at children of the Bible the way feminist scholars have been looking at the women of the Bible. Before the 1970s, there were really almost no academic books on women in the Bible, and now there are hundreds, if not thousands.

Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraTherefore, not almost all the rooms except the circumference of water have prepared the partition. Wherever it may be in, each family is the space involved gently. In the living dining room space of the first floor, the large window(W2,000×H2,300) is wide opened to the road. Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraIt is planning for this window to serve as a place which acquires the patency of interior space and is connected with the exterior. I think that giving the circumference and relation and securing privacy are generally considered like conflicting. However, in this house, privacy is not secured by intercepting relation but privacy is secured by controlling relation.

Located in the verdant Laurentians in Quebec, the Estrade Residence reveals itself discretely on the shores of Lac de la Cabane in St-Adolphe d’Howard.It is by studying the steep and rocky topography of the place that MU Architecture decided to highlight the peculiarities of this site with an adapted and captivating architectural intervention. The first objective was to design a house in total harmony with its environment.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Save this picture!Floor PlanThe singular topography of the project takes the form of a rocky crest that plunges into the lake. In order to create a discovery path, a series of animated volumes come to anchor, skirt or levitate on this unevenness. Their staggered and superimposed layout generates a multitude of terraces that embrace the site. This deployment creates a rich dialogue between architecture and the wild landscape.The Estrade gives birth to long walls of natural stones which seem to be born from the depth of the ground. As they seem to project themselves towards the landscape, these long walls generate and protect the apartments on the ground floor while giving users direct access to the land bellow. The rocks extracted during excavation were reused in the landscaping around the house, becoming also actors of this architectural narrative.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Discreet and intriguing thanks to its blind masses; the Estrade Residence is revealed slowly, volume after volume. A wide recess under what seems to be a floating cube invites us to penetrate into the place. From the entrance, an aerial and magisterial staircase welcomes the visitor and unfolds in a vast luminous space. Lined up precisely on large openings, it connects all levels in asymmetric flights. The absence of columns in the design makes the glass railings levitate, thus giving the impression of great lightness. Minimalism and attention to detail bring to the residence a certain purity and comfort that immediately gives the tone to the project. Each corridor leads to a luminous opening and makes us discover a larger and more complex residence than at first sight. The spaces offer both conviviality and intimacy through a different atmosphere at each level.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)At ground floor level, the open space is well defined and offers breathtaking views of the lake. Bathed in natural light the main floor ends with a veranda that extends the kitchen to the outside. This large volume of the ground floor stretches perpendicularly to the natural ridge so as to maximize the panorama over more than 60 feet in length. The black ash coloured kitchen and integrated furniture contrasts with the whiteness of the walls and breaks the monochromy. In addition, the double-sided fireplace located in the center of the common room accentuates the warm feel of the place. The floors, covered with natural wood as well as the terrace allows for a seamless and subtle transition from the interior to the exterior. This main volume cladded with natural cedar forms the heart of the project and brings the family together. It marks the transition between the activity of the lower spaces devoted to children and the calm of the parental suite upstairs.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)At the top, a second black cedar mass dramatically overlooks the entrance and dominates the surroundings. It houses the master’s apartment, complete with a bathroom and a large walk-in.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)The volumetric and vernacular aspect of the Estrade residence combined with its materiality testifies to an architectural writing that composes with its environment. This tripartite composition, spread over several levels, blends with nature following the seasons. Moreover, the articulation of its areas within its masses integrates the house softly and reduces the impact of its 3600sq.ft. Its spatial quality is due to the comfort and feeling of well-being, reflecting the image of the tranquility of the place.via v2comSave this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard ( YUL Photo)Project gallerySee allShow lessMành Mành salon / H&P ArchitectsSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners to Masterplan New Indian State CapitalArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

‘Justice for Jennifer Laude! U.S. out of Philippines!’

first_imgJustice for Jennifer. WW photo: Greg ButterfieldA rainy New York City rush hour didn’t deter over 50 Filipino-American activists, transgender people and supporters, who rallied outside the Philippines Consulate on Oct. 15, chanting “We say no to the VFA! Fight transphobia every day for Jennifer Laude!”Laude, a transgender Filipina woman, was found strangled in a hotel room in Olongapo City, the Philippines, on Oct. 11. A U.S. Marine suspected of her murder is being held by Pentagon authorities aboard a Navy ship.“We are outraged that another innocent life has been taken away because of the ongoing infestation of U.S. troops who have no right to be in the Philippines in the first place,” said BAYAN-USA Chair Bernadette Ellorin at the rally.She went on to say, “We are equally incensed that the U.S. whisked the suspect Marine away and is holding him aboard an American ship, rather than turning him over to Philippine authorities.  This shows how the U.S. has no respect for Philippine sovereignty or our country’s legal system.”Some 660 U.S. military personnel are permanently stationed in the Philippines under the 1999 Visiting Forces Agreement and another 1,500 are there now participating in war games. As with other places where U.S. military personnel are stationed around the world, crimes against women are commonplace.“This insult to Philippine sovereignty is no surprise, given the history of U.S. militarization in the Philippines.  It also exemplifies exactly why Filipinos are opposed to the Visiting Forces Agreement and the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement. Instead of rushing to implement the EDCA, [President] Aquino should stand up for Philippine sovereignty for once by ensuring that the Philippines asserts complete jurisdiction over Jennifer’s case,” Ellorin explained.The October 15 action was called by the BAYAN Queer Caucus, GABRIELA New York and Barangay New York-LGBTQ [email protected], and supported by TransJustice of The Audre Lorde Project, the New York City Anti-Violence Project, the International Action Center and others.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two reporters for foreign media go into hiding after getting death threats

After being threatened and roughed up by soldiers while covering the violent dispersal of an opposition demonstration two days ago in which hundreds died, they are now reportedly wanted by the military authorities.“Journalists have been playing a vital role in informing Guineans and the international community about the tragic events of the past 48 hours in Conakry,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We strongly condemn the actions of the Guinean soldiers who carried out a massacre and who are now hunting down the witnesses. The situation is grave and the safety of these two men is in danger.”Bah and Diallo were warned today by friends that soldiers were looking for them because they were regarded as having “betrayed” the military to the international community by describing the extremely violent dispersal of the 28 September demonstration, in which hundreds were killed and thousands injured. As a result, the two reporters have gone into hiding.Bah has told Reporters Without Borders how he and Diallo were roughed up soldiers. “There were four of them,” he said. “They shouted, ‘Get lost.’ We said we were journalists and they said, ‘We don’t give a damn.’ A soldier asked me: ‘Did you see it?’ I said I had. ‘You won’t say anything,’ he replied. The soldiers forced us to our knees in front of the bodies. There were bodies everywhere, and pools of blood. They said: ‘Those bodies, you won’t talk about them. You’ve seen nothing.”Bah added: “One of the soldiers put his gun to my chest and said he was going to kill me. I replied, ‘If that is the solution for Guinea, go ahead.’ He did not fire. They searched us. They stole our money and our phones and they destroyed our equipment. The microphone was smashed against the tarmac. They were completely drunk. They poured a bottle of beer over my head and shirt and hit Amadou’s left arm. Then one of their chiefs recognised us. It was Ansoumane Camara, the commander of the Rapid Intervention and Security Company (CMIS). He ordered them to let us go but they continued to insult us and call us bastards.”Many other journalists were roughed by the same day, Bah said. They include an FM Liberté reporter and Ba Mamadou, who works for the satirical newspaper Le Lynx.Widely referred to as a “massacre” and as a “bloodbath,” the 28 September events have been unanimously condemned in the international community. The head of the military junta, Capt. Dadis Camara, has said he is sorry for what happened. On the day of the massacre, he told RFI: “It’s unfortunate, it’s dramatic. Very frankly speaking, I’m very sorry, very sorry.” Yesterday he told the French TV channel Europe 1: “I was overtaken by events. I can’t control all the actions of this army. To say that I control this army would be demagogy.”Picture : AFP April 9, 2021 Find out more Organisation Newslast_img read more
