Join England and use Wrestling to improve your skills

Haskell explains: “We warm up with drills or technical work, and then concentrate on one aspect, such as splitting your feet or getting low to the ground, working one-on-one with a partner. We’ve used different techniques for clearing out rucks, done some grappling, and worked with dummies, driving them back and putting them down.”Check out the squad during their pre-season training session…This article appeared in the September 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

Back-rower James Haskell has been relishing the sessions, which he says are both enjoyable and a useful training tool.“I had been wrestling and doing some mixed martial arts for eight or nine months, so I was familiar with the concept when the England coaches introduced it to our training programme,” says Haskell. “It’s great fun and as well as being beneficial for your technique and conditioning, it brings a different element to our training. It also gets very competitive which all rugby players love.”The squad took part in two 35-minute sessions a week for three weeks, and dropped to one session after that to allow more time for rugby sessions. However, it will remain a focal point for their training camps throughout August.Haskell continues: “The sessions are physically demanding. You get very out of breath and your heart-rate goes through the roof. Our sessions are always in a hot marquee!”If you want to improve your technique for tackling and clearing people off the ball, this is a great activity for you. It teaches you how to manipulate an opponent’s body, and get into a position where you’re dominant at the breakdown and in tackle situations. Tackling and ruck and maul situations are similar to what you may encounter in a wrestling match, and it also trains you to operate at a low centre of gravity. read more

Women’s World Cup 2017: England v New Zealand final preview

first_imgIn at 13: Megan Jones starts at outside-centre for England in the final. Photo: Getty Images“Emily is an accomplished full-back, she’s played there a lot, and when Jonesy has come in she’s played really well at 13,” says Middleton. “She gives us a good balance to the side in terms of she’s an aggressive defender so will get us on the front foot. With Emily at full-back, we will have more of a kicking game from there.”Coaches’ viewBoth coaches believe their sides have improved since they met in June, when England won 29-21 in Rotorua. In Belfast we will find out who has improved the most.“The two best teams in the world qualified for the final,” says Moore. “We’ve all come off the same format – four-day turnarounds – and it will come down to the best team on the day.“I think it will be an arm-wrestle early on for sure. We’ll just have to see how the game unfolds. Both teams will have done their analysis on each other and it will be two teams putting their best out there. It will be a very physical, bruising encounter.”Tight contest: Chelsea Alley is tackled by Rachael Burford and Natasha Hunt in June. Photo: Getty ImagesMiddleton concurs, saying: “They’re a very physical side. They’ve got some great talent and they like to get on the front foot – that’s when they’re at their best. They’ve developed as they’ve gone through the tournament. They’ve been outstanding as an attacking and defensive force, and they’ve scored some great tries. They’ve moved their game on since we played (in June) but I’d like to think we have as well. It’s pretty evenly matched.”The bookmakers are finding it difficult to pick a favourite – but we don’t have long to wait to find out who is the best team in the world.England v New Zealand, Saturday 26 August, 7.45pm, Kingspan Stadium, Live on ITV & 5liveEngland: E Scarratt; L Thompson, M Jones, R Burford, K Wilson; K Mclean, N Hunt; V Cornborough, A Cokayne, S Bern, A Scott, T Taylor, A Matthews, M Packer, S Hunter (captain).Replacements: V Fleetwood, R Clark, J Lucas, H Millar-Mills, I Noel-Smith, LT Mason, A Reed, A Wilson Hardy.New Zealand: S Winiata; P Woodman, S Waaka, K Brazier, R Wickliffe; V Subritzky-Nafatali, K Cocksedge; T Natua, F Faamausili (captain), A Itunu, E Blackwell, C Smith, C McMenamin, S Goss, A Savage.

England v New Zealand under the lights at Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on a Saturday night – what a Women’s World Cup final it is going to be.It’s the defending champions against the four-time champions. It’s England’s fifth straight World Cup final and their fourth against the Black Ferns. England lost the previous three, finishing runners-up in 2002, 2006 and 2010, and the rivalry between the two is huge.England not only beat the Black Ferns on New Zealand soil for the first time since 2001 in June but they also usurped them as the world’s No 1 team in the rankings. Yet this week New Zealand were back on top courtesy of their victory over higher-ranked Canada in the pool stages. We don’t have to wait long to find out who is the world’s best team, however; that will be decided on Saturday night – and it should be a cracker of a World Cup final.Power play: Marlie Packer takes on the French defence in the semi-finals. Photo: Getty ImagesFlanker Marlie Packer has been at the forefront of England’s route to the final and is not intimidated by the Black Ferns’ record in the tournament. “There’s no fear factor,” she says. “At the end of the day we’re a very confident team and we don’t fear anyone. We’d never underestimate New Zealand and they’d never underestimate us. At the same time it’s a case of concentrating on ourselves. It’s going to be a massive physical battle. I love the physical battle.“Everybody’s game has raised since 2014 and the competitiveness has raised. That is what people want to see – quality players, tough games and a physical battle with players putting it all into the shirt for their country. This is a whole other level compared to 2014.”Kicking onThe increase in standards has been widely heralded and one of the standout improvements has been in kicking. In this area, England and New Zealand lead the way. Katy Mclean’s ability to execute accurate touchfinders and play a territorial game has been crucial for England, and she is ably supported by the boot of Emily Scarratt and the box-kicking of Natasha Hunt. As Hunt says: “Katy has put us in the right areas of the field, understanding when and where we need to kick. She’s been phenomenal and that’s been huge for us.”Boot room: Katy Mclean has improved her tactical kicking game. Photo: Getty ImagesThose dressed in black have several kicking options too. Kendra Cocksedge, Kelly Brazier and Victoria Subritzky-Nafatali are all involved and Mclean says: “They’ve got a really dangerous kicking game.”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERESubritzky-Nafatali, by her own admission, doesn’t look like your traditional fly-half. The 25-year-old, who has German, Polish, Samoan and Maori heritage, started out as a back-row and moved to the ten spot aged 17 when “I gained a bit of skill”. Asked if she thinks England and New Zealand are the two best kicking sides in the competition, she replies: “I think New Zealand are the best at everything.”She goes on to pay tribute to the supporters as well as the team, but it’s those sort of comments that represent the fine line between confidence and arrogance, a fine line that is often debated when discussing New Zealand rugby.Big break: New Zealand fly-half Victoria Subritzky-Nafatali on the burst against Canada. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat isn’t up for debate is the pure joy Subritzky-Nafatali demonstrates when representing New Zealand, positioning herself at the end of the line-up for the anthems and swaying to the music with a huge smile on her face.“We have a really unique culture here and the group is really tight,” says Black Ferns coach Glenn Moore. “They enjoy each other’s company and have a lot of fun. A lot of them gravitate towards music and it’s a musical team. We grow strength out of that.”Final selectionsMoore has named an unchanged starting XV for the final and there is only one tweak on the bench, Kristina Sue coming in for Linda Itunu as they revert to a 5-3 split between forwards and backs replacements.England head coach Simon Middleton has made one change, enforced by the fact Danielle Waterman failed an HIA during the semi-final against France. Emily Scarratt moves to full-back with Megan Jones coming in at 13, and Amy Wilson Hardy earns a place on the bench.center_img All you need to know about the Women’s World Cup final between England and New Zealand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

What Do The Lines On A Rugby Pitch Mean?

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS However, the ball is not in touch if it reaches the plane of the line and is caught or kicked by a player who is still in bounds. Players can cross the plane of touch and knock the ball back as long as they are not touching the ground.Touch-in-goal linesThese extend backwards from the goal line to the dead ball line and the ball is dead if it touches them. If the attacking team has played the ball into in-goal then a 22m dropout is awarded; if the defending team have played it in a 5m scrum is awarded to the attacking team. We give the lowdown on the six venues… Six Nations Fixtures 2022 The 2022 Six Nations… Six Nations Venues Who is leading the way in the Six… Expand What Do The Lines On A Rugby Pitch Mean?The Six Nations tournament is being held at six different venues across Europe, however the basic design of each of the pitches will be the same. But what exactly do all the different lines on a rugby pitch actually mean? Let’s take a look.Dead-ball linesThe dead-ball lines, at the far ends of the pitch behind the goal-line, do what they say on the tin. Once the ball goes over the dead-ball line it is… dead and out of play. If the attacking team kick the ball over it, the defending side get a 22m dropout or a scrum from where the ball has been kicked. A missed drop-goal, or penalty attempt, is a 22m dropout for the defending side.Scoring Zone: A view of the dead-ball and try lines (Getty Images)Goal-lines/Try-linesAgain, they do what they say on the tin but they belong to the attacking team. A try is awarded if the ball is grounded on, or behind, the try-line but if officials are not sure if the ball is properly grounded or held up by the defending team the attacking team get a 5m scrum. The goal posts are part of the try-line and a five-pointer is awarded if the ball is touched onto the base of the posts or the padding. If you take the ball over your own goal-line and touch it down it is a 5m scrum to the attacking team.22-metre linesHave a wild guess. These are lines 22 metres from the try-lines at either end of the pitch and are a safety net for defending teams who can kick the ball out on the full if they are behind the line. If they are not behind their own 22m line, or ran the ball back behind the line and boot it out without it bouncing, then the lineout is taken level with where the ball was kicked from. Also the starting point for 22m dropouts.Midway Point: A view of the halfway line (Getty Images)Halfway lineWhere the game starts at the kick-off and from re-starts after a score. The kicking team have to be behind the line when the ball is kicked. If they kick the ball straight out off a re-start the non-kicking team can have a scrum on halfway, a lineout on halfway or the kick re-taken.TouchlinesRun the length of the field either side of the pitch. The line is not part of the pitch so the ball or ball-carrier is in touch if the ball, or ball-carrier, touches the line or anything beyond it. Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Five-metre lines (dashed)Run five metres from the touchlines and five metres from the goal-line. At lineouts the ball must reach the 5m line before it is played.Five-metre scrums are taken on the line parallel with the goal-line if the attacking team is held up or if a defender carries or passes the ball in goal before it is touched down.10-metre lines (dashed)More dashed lines 10 metres both sides of the halfway line. When the game is restarted from halfway the ball must travel at least ten metres.15-metre lines (dashed)These dashed lines run 15 metres from the touchline and players in a lineout must stand within them when the ball is thrown.

Webber says: TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab [Lambeth Palace press release] “I pray that our Christian hope and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ will heal relationships between individuals, communities and nations,” Archbishop Justin Welby says in his Easter letter to partners and heads of other churches around the world.The full text of the letter is published below:“Looking at the world during these times of growing conflict and the challenges of a changing context, we are acutely aware of a sense of helplessness. In South Sudan outbreaks of violence are displacing thousands of people. UNICEF noted recently that the emergency in the world’s newest nation, where nearly 900,000 people have already been forced from their homes, risks becoming overwhelming. Natural disasters as well as the risks in day-to-day survival in Asia’s megacities are hitting the poorest children hardest. A new report published by the International Institute for Environment & Development and the children’s charity Plan International reveals that street and slum children are the most vulnerable to environmental hazards, climate change and natural disasters.“We are aware of the continuing traumatic experiences of Christians and other suffering people, particularly in the Middle East. Religious freedom is being curbed in many parts of the world and human rights trampled upon. And the Ukraine is likely to remain an area of tension for some time to come.“Against all this, as Christians we take courage from the victory won in the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The letter to the Ephesians reminds us that although the world is divided and unjust, God has not abandoned it, nor ever will. God has given Christ all dominion, power and authority and has through Christ raised and made us his co-workers. Christ represents the fullness of the church and he is our peace. Through him dividing walls of hostility between people are broken down. Through him there is a new humanity, a new reality. With him we will be knitted together into one body. Principalities and powers of this world will be called to reason and obedience to God, not in a struggle for power but for truth.“Some of us live in a relatively safe place and a comfortable context, but all of us are duty bound as Christians to pray for our sisters and brothers, who are living in exposed and threatening conditions on a daily basis. They need the assurance that they are not alone and will not be forgotten. They will need our continuing support in whatever ways possible. They will need our friendship and hospitality. Our own insecurities and concerns set alongside the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters will strengthen the realisation that we need each other.“The friendship into which we are called with God and with one another is radical in that God incarnate in Jesus is our friend and brother, sharing his purpose with us and drawing those who choose to follow into an intimate bond with himself and so with each other. God’s kingdom is global. We need to make whatever efforts we can to think and live in this global awareness of friendship, offering hospitality and love in its manifold forms for Christ’s sake.“The Good News is that we are embraced by God in the risen Christ as friends in his kingdom; we are grafted into the stem, intimately joined with the Source of our being and raised to new life in Christ. I pray therefore that our Christian hope and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ will heal relationships between individuals, communities and nations, banish fear, overcome suffering and broker peace, that the dawn may come.“It is in this spirit that I greet you and close this Easter letter with a doxology and an ascription of praise.“‘Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.

Bombing, murder, burning, shooting will not dampen our spirits and our commitment to Jesus Christ,” he says.This video was first published on Nov. 19, 2013.Azariah briefed the Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops on Sept. 19 about the life of his church in a country where Christians account for 1.5 percent of the 189 million Pakistanis.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has issued a statement on this first anniversary of the suicide bombings at All Saints Church, Peshawar, Pakistan.

And I often ask myself, “Is my faith strong enough to withstand the persecution that Christians are experiencing all over the world?” I wonder about these amazing people, who laid down their lives for our Lord Jesus Christ. These persecuted faithful are our modern-day martyrs. Most of whom will never be listed on a church calender, or in such books as “Holy Women, Holy Men, but are still like many of our saints. I pray to God that my faith could be, at least, a fraction of the strength of the people like Archbishop Azariah, and All Saints Church. Our brothers and sisters in Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, and Iraq are pillars of faith. We have to admire these amazing people for the depth of their faith, and pray for them. They are fantastic role models for Christians everywhere.Our rector and parish are very involved with Ecumenical and Interfaith affairs. We gather with Muslims, Jews, and other Christians for the opportunity for understanding each other and fellowship. Being the case, I have to state this. Groups like the Islamic State and AL Qaida are not a part of the real religion of Islam. I studied Islam for seven years and practiced Islam for twelve years, before returning home to the Episcopal faith. During some of those years I lived in Amman, Jordan. To this day, I have never met any terrorists. Those who persecute non-Muslims are not Islamic. They are violating the Qur’an, Hadiths, and the Sharia. Sadly, the media generalizes these fanatics as representatives of what is actually a religion of peace. I write about this frequently, because Islam is not an evil religion. It is one of the Abrahamic faiths whose moral teachings and ancestry is very similar to our own faith. I think it is important to stress this, because of the Anti-Islamic attitude that has become popular with many in the West. Muslims are not the only religion that is guilty of persecution. This has happened at the hands of Christianity and other faiths, as well. Maybe this is a factor of human nature, to destroy anything with which we don’t understand. The worst part of all of this is the fact that the persecutors justify their horrible actions, by claiming they are doing so, “In the Name If God.” Rector Smithfield, NC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Tags New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

‘Connecting the dots’ between faith and climate change

first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA Submit a Job Listing The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group [Religion News Service] Tackling issues like climate change or protecting the environment often requires a lot of boring, behind-the-scenes work, far from the spotlight.But sometimes you have to let your light shine, said the Rev. Susan Hendershot Guy, president of Interfaith Power & Light.For California faith communities, that means taking a public role in the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco this week (Sept. 12-14), offering an interfaith service and faith-based workshops among other events.The three-day summit, co-chaired by Gov. Jerry Brown and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has drawn international and local government, business, science and nonprofit leaders. Hendershot Guy said it is important for the faith community to show up as well.“Every major faith tradition calls us to care for the Earth,” she said. “And every major faith tradition calls us to care for our neighbors and those who are most vulnerable. And climate change impacts both of those.”The summit has been a chance for these congregations to raise the profile of their faith efforts.“There are a lot of people beginning to connect the dots between faith, the environment, climate change,” said the Rev. Ambrose Carroll, co-founder of Green the Church, a campaign to motivate environmental action in the African-American church community.For many congregations, the environmental focus is nothing new. Many local houses of worship have community gardens or encourage members to write letters to the editor of their local newspaper. An Interfaith Power & Light program called Cool Congregations helps congregations reduce their carbon footprint while saving money.Some faith leaders have taken time to call or meet with local policy makers — an important step, said Hendershot Guy. “We can all change a light bulb,” she said. “But at the end of the day we need the right policies in place in order to get where we need to go as quickly as we need to get there.”Recently a number of faith-based organizations backed a new California law, signed by Brown this week, that requires the state to get all its power from renewable sources by 2045.Bishop Marc Andrus of the Episcopal Diocese of California said his denomination has been working on corporate and individual action. The Episcopal Church remains committed to the Paris climate accord, even though President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the agreement. The denomination has also passed a number of resolutions focused on creation care.The resolutions include encouraging churches to serve and promote locally grown food, promoting energy and water efficiency and advocating for ocean health through public policy advocacy.Keeping those resolutions, Andrus said, is easier said than done, which is why the church is helping create an app to assist people with keeping their commitments.The app, Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home, will help people make five changes in their life and then tracks their progress. The app is expected to go live in January.Kristin Barker, co-founder of One Earth Sangha, which brings practices from the Buddhist tradition to ecological issues, said it’s important to personally commit to the Paris agreement and not wait for the government to enforce regulations.But she also acknowledges the difficulties of living a sustainable life and wants others to feel they can acknowledge it too.“This is hard. It takes me longer to get to work when I have to take a bus. Or, I really miss eating hamburgers,” she said.Andrus said many faith-based groups are working on sustainability and environmental justice is very large. But they seem to be flying under the radar.“Many of them don’t know about each other,” Andrus said. “And the larger body of the church and the general public don’t know about them either.”Both Andrus and Hendershot Guy are working to organize and support these communities through interfaith events at the summit.“It’s one planet and it’s one people,” Andrus said. “We inspire each other, we learn from each other.”Lately some faith groups in California have found themselves at odds when it comes to environmental issues.A local environmental coalition called STAND-LA — which includes faith-based groups — is working to shut down the the Murphy oil drilling site in Los Angeles, arguing that its wells pose a danger to the community. It is one of two such sites located on property owned by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.“We stand with the archdiocese when it comes to immigration reform. We stand with the archdiocese on several other social issues,” said the Rev. Kelvin Sauls, faith community organizer for STAND-LA. “On some we disagree.”The land was donated to the archdiocese in the 1950s by descendants of Edward L. Doheny, one of Los Angeles’ early oil barons, according to the Los Angeles Times. AllenCo Energy bought the oil production facility on the site in 2009.AllenCo voluntarily suspended oil production in 2013 after public opposition. An investigation led to more than $99,000 in fines, according to the Times.The site has remained closed. But AllenCo officials have discussed reopening it.STAND-LA and other south LA residents want the diocese to help shut the site down permanently. Last year, Sauls sent a letter to Archbishop José H. Gomez asking for a meeting. The letter cited Pope Francis’ encyclical on ecology.“We also see it as a tremendous opportunity to transition to a more sustainable economy that will create jobs for local residents, income for local institutions, and ensure a healthy community for our children and future generations,” the letter read. “We believe the Los Angeles Archdiocese can play a transformational and catalytic role in this transition.”Gabriela Garcia, who lives near the AllenCo drilling site, has been part of grassroots efforts for several years. She said the efforts came together when neighbors started asking one another about strange odors and whether their children were also getting nosebleeds.She also spoke during a rally at the Murphy site on Saturday (Sept. 8). Acknowledging that the issue is complex, Garcia said nonetheless that the archdiocese has a responsibility to shut down the site.“We know that that would be the best outcome for our community and for the health of our community,” Garcia said.In an email statement, the archdiocese told Religion News Service that it “does not have the right to shut down the site.”“That said we are working with the City and AllenCo to find an alternative use for the site that is in the best interest of the community, royalty holders and all other stake-holders,” the statement continued.The rally also promoted legislation for a 2,500-foot buffer between extraction sites and homes, said Niki Wong, director of policy and organizing at Redeemer Community Partnership, a local faith group.Wong knows these rallies can make a difference.In August, the faith-based group learned the owners of a drill site on Jefferson Boulevard would be shutting that facility down in the face of neighborhood opposition.Now the nonprofit is working to make sure the closure and cleanup are done in a timely manner and that it isn’t left as an “orphan well,” abandoned by the company.Then, she said, it’ll be up to the community to decide what to do with the land next. She’s heard people talking about a skate park, library or park.“Right now this site is awful. It’s a facility that repels people from their homes,” Wong said. “It’d be so beautiful to see it transform into a park that gathers people together.” Director of Music Morristown, NJ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Environment & Climate Change Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Posted Sep 14, 2018 Rector Martinsville, VA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Goetz descubrió que el contrato de Sauls no se violó porque él era un “empleado a voluntad” y que “nada en el manual [DFMS] limita el derecho de los demandados a rescindir el empleo del demandante por cualquier motivo”.Goetz desestimó la demanda de difamación porque el plazo de prescripción de un año había caducado. Sauls argumentó que el estatuto fue reactivado por la re- publicación de material presuntamente difamatorio. Sin embargo, Goetz dijo que las reclamaciones más recientes no cumplían con el estándar de reedición porque no identificaban “las palabras particulares de que se quejaba ni especificaba ´el tiempo, la forma y la persona a quien se hacía la publicación´, ni identificaba a la persona que lo hizo”.Al desestimar la demanda de que la DFMS había interferido con las perspectivas de empleo de Sauls, Goetz escribió: “No hay ninguna alegación de que los acusados ​​fueran conscientes de que el demandante había buscado estas oportunidades de empleo o que habían interferido intencionalmente en estas oportunidades”.El juez también desestimó la reclamación de Sauls de indemnización por los honorarios legales relacionados con la demanda que presentó contra DFMS.

Atlanta Bishop Robert Wright releases statement on killing of Rayshard…

first_img [Diocese of Atlanta] The Rt. Rev. Robert C. Wright, 10th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, issued the following statement in response to the killing on June 12 of Rayshard Brooks by police in Atlanta, Georgia.Like you, I am grieving yet another black man being killed by the police. Tragically, this time it has happened in our midst in Atlanta.We commend Rayshard Brooks’ soul to the loving mercy of our God and his body to the earth. But we also commend his memory and unnecessary death to the conscience of every Georgian, every American, every follower of Jesus and every justice seeker.For those who dismiss the call for reform in our policing as mere politics, exactly how high does the stack of bodies need to pile up before you lend your voice and strength for change?From the founding of our country we have had a white supremacy problem.In this tragic incident, this founding flaw has been revealed again. What looks like the behavior of two police officers is actually a system producing what it was designed to produce, the denial of dignity and safety to black and brown people, specifically black men.My heart breaks with every telling and retelling of the unjust killing of our nation’s Black citizens. My heart has been broken time and time again in this way since I can remember.I do not condone violence by the police or protesters because I am a prisoner of God’s hope, because Jesus is the Lord of my life. And, I do not condone property damage for the cause of protest because it gives critics a means to diminish legitimate concerns.  But I am, like so many, at my wits end.When we are killed like dogs in the street, we are told to be patient and that justice will prevail except, justice in these instances, has been the exception and not the rule. People of every race and good will have been told that our eyes are lying when we see murder, or that the person deserved to die because they had a past. So in this case as in the murders of Ahmaud Aubrey, George Floyd, and now Rayshard Brooks we will wait breathing shallow breaths to see if in Georgia and Minnesota we will deviate from our well-worn American pattern.I stand with all law enforcement who protect and serve the dignity, safety, and rights of all people. I echo Mayor Lance-Bottoms words, “we can do better than this in Atlanta” and commit myself to the hard work of helping Atlanta and our nation to reimagine policing.And, I pray that the blood of Ahmaud Aubrey, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks has not been spilled in vain.
