Presiding Bishop urges the Church to ‘wake up’

first_img Susan hayes says: Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest May 21, 2017 at 5:50 pm Well said Ronald.The article is labeled as a message of racial unity, which every Christian supports. So why do I see many members posting negative comments? I believe these comments reflect the damage that has been done by the post-election political activism of the leadership which has divided congregations and driven away members. It is not the membership but the leaders who need to “wake up.” Bishops and many pastors seem to be mired in the third stage of denial:1) denial that there is a problem;2) denial that there is a big problem; and3) denial that the problem has anything to do with them.The PB’s concluding message to “take the values of the Kingdom of God and live them” is inspiring and is the true message of Jesus Christ. But for me, this message was undermined by the subtle call for members to take a “role in the public square.” I remain unpersuaded that Jesus was political. Merely rebranding the Church’s “social justice” agenda as the “Jesus Movement,” and proclaiming that the Church does not engage in partisan politics, cannot camouflage the fact that the Church adopts and advocates only leftist causes. I have seen no ENS published report of bishops and clergy publicly denouncing the violence and riots that have followed the call for “resistance.” I have yet to see a post-election proclamation from a diocesan convention or a “statement of bishops” which supports jobs for citizens, fixing our crumbling infrastructure, or relief from job killing governmental regulations and taxes. The budget of my local Diocese allocates $1.5 million to support Syrian refugees and promote a Sanctuary Diocese, but includes no funds for outreach programs to help our veterans and their families. I am not schooled in liberal versus orthodox interpretations of the New Testament, but it seems to me that combining the message of Jesus with partisan political activism–whether liberal or conservative–is an attempt to build a Kingdom that depends not on God, but on winning elections and destroying your enemies. I believe that the caution from scripture and history is to avoid advocating a political stance as God’s position, and to be particularly cautious when cozying up to politicians and adopting the partisan agendas of non-believers. As Abraham Lincoln noted in a time of war: “We need to pray that we are on God’s side, rather than claim that God is on our side! God’s care embraces the whole earth, including our nation’s enemies.” God is in control of the world: not Trump, not Putin, not Congress, and not the Republican and Democratic Parties. I believe that it is better to preach members how to live a righteous life and then trust in God rather than the bullhorn. Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Bath, NC Comments (18) Cathedral Dean Boise, ID mike geibel says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA May 23, 2017 at 12:26 am Thank you Dr. Flint for your first comment about the hatred for our POTUS. I agree the Jesus Movement is not honest with itself. Yes, today was wonderful for the USA and Israel . Godspeed Pres. Trump for that! May 15, 2017 at 7:13 pm Our faith calls upon us to speak out against racial and ethnic injustices and calls us to action on a broad range of measures, from opening dialogues with those whose skin is a different shade to asking our elected officials to change laws that criminalize the search for economic opportunity. Thank you, Bishop Curry, for your consistent and strong message of engagement. Frank E. Tate, III says: May 18, 2017 at 1:33 pm I think it is not so much about hating Trump but hating the acts he has done. I agree we should love him as Jesus did but as Jesus loves us he hates the sins we commit. I pray for Trump and all the people he is hurting by his actions, and I keep believing Jesus has the last word. I know my church pray for Trump asking God to guide his actions and I am an Episcopalian who knows that change will only come as Bishop Curry said, when we act like Jesus no matter the situation.

CHARGE…… Youth Minister Lorton, VA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL May 18, 2017 at 1:16 pm Obviously evangelism is important to the “Jesus Movement,” but respectfully, the Presiding Bishop is misrepresenting the message of our Lord by stating that ending racism and the care of God’s creation are the roots of the Jesus Movement . As to ending racism, that (along with ending many other forms of irrationally hateful behavior) would be a natural consequence of spreading all of the teachings and Gospel of Jesus. But it is not any part of Jesus’ teaching that his followers must try to end racial prejudice on earth if they ever hope to gain the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary His message was that we are NOT to focus on matters of this world but on our place in the world to come by living our lives here in a Godly manner and so –by our example– persuading others to live in this way as well. The Rev Bishop and the Church will never end racism by lecturing people about it or by lobbying for more laws. Such change will only come when people are awakened to ALL of the teachings of Jesus and their hearts are changed thereby. As far as the care of God’s creation –does the Bishop truly believe that Jesus called on his followers to protect God’s creation from destruction by mankind? It is well within God’s power to protect his creation against any force devised by mankind –including so-called “global warming”. Whether it takes a millennia or a millennia of millennia–God’s creation will heal itself and remove any trace of any damage caused by man. It is the epitome of hubris to believe otherwise. God does not need the Bishop or the Church to help Him protect His creation. However, what is not within God’s power is control over the free will of men. Therefore God does need our help and efforts to enlighten others and open their hearts to all of the words of Jesus. Curate Diocese of Nebraska May 20, 2017 at 4:17 pm Who exactly has Trump hurt by his actions? I haven’t noticed anyone being hurt by him. I do see a lot of damage being done by leftist rioting and destroying property belonging to others. Trump didn’t cause that. Looks to me Trump is accomplishing a great deal that the former President couldn’t. He is being recognized by other nations as a better President than Obama, that certainly isn’t hurting anyone. It is time to get over the election, Trump is the President of the United States. Give them the man your prayers and a chance to accomplish the good in what he does.

Rector Belleville, IL May 17, 2017 at 10:46 am Racism seems to be like original sin, deplorable but somehow endemic to being human. We need to pray for Devine Grace to overcome it. We are capable of living without it, thankfully, there are many examples of open hearted people and societies, but living fearlessly trusting in the bountiful extravagant love of God seems to me essential for a peaceful joyful life. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York May 15, 2017 at 5:25 pm I became aware of Thy Kingdom Come via an email today, and encourage every Episcopalian to sign-up ([email protected]), as part of our U.S. Jesus Movement. There are thousands of us signed on, worldwide, for a time of focused prayer from May 25th to June 4th (Pentecost) for those who do are not yet believers to come to know Jesus. There are great resources at this movement’s website. Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Shreveport, LA May 18, 2017 at 4:02 pm Original sin was in fact the blaming of God for human decisions. Remember, God ask the man; “How do you know you are naked? Did you eat of the tree I told you not too?” The man answered; “The woman YOU created, gave me the fruit and I ate it.” The woman replied; “The serpent YOU created tricked me and I did eat.” The point is instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, they blamed God. When we fail to be responsible and blame God or anyone or thing other than ourselves, we commit the ORIGINAL SIN all over again. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Terry Francis says: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry proclaiming the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement in a public event at Goucher College outside Baltimore, Maryland. Photo: Randall Gornowich[Diocese of Maryland] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry returned to his old stomping grounds in the Diocese of Maryland, bringing an inspiring message and encouraging Episcopalians to claim their role as members of the Jesus Movement.“’Heaven help the devil if the Episcopal Church ever wakes up,’” he said, quoting the famed 20th-century evangelist, Billy Sunday. “Wake up, Episcopal Church. That’s what the Jesus Movement is all about.”Curry, who served as rector of St. James in Baltimore for 12 years, has been calling for a new period of evangelism within the church since being elected in 2015. This effort also includes a desire for the Episcopal Church to address some of the systemic race and class issues that plague American society.“We need to find a way for the grace of God to bear on the deeply rooted system of sin that mires us in a quagmire of racism,” he said. Racial reconciliation, evangelism and the care of God’s creation are the roots of the Jesus Movement for the presiding bishop.This week Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, will launch a churchwide program aimed at encouraging racial reconciliation. It is called, “Becoming Beloved Community: The Episcopal Church’s Long-term Commitment to Racial Healing, Reconciliation and Justice.” An introductory webinar is set for May 16.The program is the result of a year’s worth of listening sessions, consulting and reflection. It began with the passage of Resolution C019 at the 2015 General Convention, which called for the House of Bishops and House of Deputies to create a vision for addressing racial injustice. The convention also budgeted $2 million to make the plan a reality.Success in the drive for reconciliation will depend in large part on building relationships, said Curry.“Deep down in the bowels of our racial dilemma is the truth that we really don’t know each other,” he said. “Racism has a field day with that because that’s where we get into stereotypes, and one of the ways you get out of that is to get people to engage in real relationships.”During his Maryland visit, Curry gave a brief morning talk at the 233rd Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, squeezed in a couple of interviews, and preached to a nearly filled auditorium on the campus of Goucher College in Towson.The evening event, known as “The Big Tent Meeting,” gave him a chance to have a little fun with the perceived reluctance of Episcopalians to engage in evangelism. He built his sermon around Acts 1:8 and brought in other biblical citations such as Isaiah 43:10-12. Then he brought the message closer to home, quoting from the baptismal liturgy and the catechism in The Book of Common Prayer.“The truth I really do believe is that we need witnesses, and not just witnesses in the abstract,” he said. “We need evangelists to witness to a way of being Christian that reflects the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth.”Curry used his love of baseball to find a surprising illustration of the sometimes subtle, yet powerful ways witnessing to the gospel has influenced public life. Apparently, Branch Rickey, the famed executive of the Brooklyn Dodgers, used the Beatitudes and other teachings of Jesus Christ to help Jackie Robinson find ways to withstand the insults that would come when Robinson integrated the major leagues on April 15, 1947.“They changed major league baseball following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth,” Curry said. “Be not afraid and be not ashamed to be Christians who are known by love, justice and forgiveness.”During an earlier interview, Curry noted that part of his passion for proclaiming the Jesus Movement was born out of his own reflections and a desire to help people develop a richer spiritual life. Bible study is key to making that happen, he said, adding that in the current world of social media, the study need not be done face to face. But the study must happen.“It’s kind of like the Emmaus Road,” he said. “Have a conversation and Jesus will show up.”Curry also said that as the Church claims its role as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, it also will find an ongoing role in the public square.“We are not entering the political realm as partisans, but to lift up the values we have as Christians,” he said. “Jesus died in the real world because he dared to take the values of the Kingdom of God and live them.”-The Rev. M. Dion Thompson, a priest in the Diocese of Maryland, is a former reporter for The Baltimore Sun newspaper.

It appears that many of his flock are to busy hating Trump to love Jesus. That would require them to love Trump just a Jesus loves them. I wonder what success the Presiding Bishop will have?It’s a good thing that SALVATION belongs to GOD and not the Church. Thanks be to God! Featured Events Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI May 22, 2017 at 2:41 pm Well said Mike. Our PB is all for one taking a role in the public square as long as the message given in the public square is leftward leaning. If you have conservative or traditionalist views, don’t bother. At the end of the day it is all political and not spiritual. Like you I cannot imagine our Lord and Savior with a bullhorn in His hand. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Smithfield, NC May 15, 2017 at 7:54 pm In reference to the Jackie Robinson story, we must also remember Jackie’s teammate, a Kentucky born shortstop known as “Pee Wee” Reese. Quoting Colbert I. King in his Washington Post article many years ago: “[The story] took place in Cincinnati during a game in which Jackie Robinson was having an especially hellish time. The stadium scene was ugly, and Robinson, true to his pact with Dodgers owner Branch Rickey, couldn’t fight back. He was standing on the field just taking it from the fans and the opposing dugout. As the abuse mounted, the Dodgers’ captain, Pee Wee Reese, walked over to second base and put his arm over Jackie’s shoulder, showing the crowd where he stood.”King goes on to say:“Robinson’s place in history is secure. He was a fighter, a pioneer, a believer. He stood tall. Robinson remains an inspiration for generations to come. But Pee Wee Reese deserves more than an honorable mention too. In a way, he served us too, by becoming a living lesson of how we should behave.”The Jesus movement is made up of many individuals playing their part to help us know the Kingdom of God is at hand.

Dion ThompsonPosted May 15, 2017 Rector Collierville, TN New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books May 22, 2017 at 10:59 am Anglican tradition is one of free thinking and expression. The problem in the Episcopal Church is it tries to silence opposition to its progressive agenda. Seems that our parishes are losing members right and left and the Mega Churches are growing beyond their capacity to accommodate their new members. To be in the Jesus Movement means one must make a personal decision and commitment to follow Jesus, making LOVE primary in their lives. LOVE is a hard and difficult thing to do. There is nothing wrong with hoping for the Separation of Church & State as long as faithful people are involved in both. One cannot hope to change the world by changing society, one can only hope that the world will change as God changes human hearts as those are come to Him through Jesus, His Son. I love this Church and will not be silent as it waste away. An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET May 16, 2017 at 4:08 pm Many folks have posted the need for reconciliation. Good stuff. Yet Sunday is the most segregated day in America.As a body of faith, should we not spend some time wondering about new parishes? About new members?Will folks of color (or anybody else) join us because we say we’re sorry, or because we light up the place on Sundays?What did your parish do this week to grow beyond current membership? How many folks within a rifle shot of your parish are unchurched, or are lonely with a deployed spouse, or are hurting spiritually?It’s not an ‘instead of’ choice, but we need to reverse our decline in membership or our statements of reconciliation come from a corpse.

first_imgTop StoriesElection Commission Singularly Responsible For COVID Second Wave; Officers Should Probably Be Booked For Murder : Madras High Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK25 April 2021 11:44 PMShare This – xThe HC pulled up the ECI for allowing political rallies during the pandemic and for not enforcing COVID protocols during campaignsThe Madras High Court on Monday came down heavily on the Election Commission of India for allowing political rallies during the COVID-19 pandemic.A visibly upset Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee told the Election Commission’s counsel “Your institution is singularly responsible for the second wave of COVID-19”.The Chief Justice went to the extent of orally saying “Your officers should be booked on murder charges probably”.The Chief Justice observed that the Commission had failed to enforce COVID norms regarding wearing of facemasks, use of sanitizers and maintaining social distancing during election campaigning, despite court orders.”Were you on another planet when the election rallies were held?”, Chief Justice asked the ECI counsel.The Court warned that it will stop the counting scheduled on May 2 if the ECI does not put in place a blueprint of a plan to ensure following of COVID19 protocol on the counting day.”Public health is of paramount importance and it is distressing that constitutional authorities have to be reminded in such regard. It is only when a citizen survives that he’ll be able to enjoy the rights that a democratic republic guarantees”, the Chief Justice added.”The situation now is of survival and protection. Everything else comes next”, the Chief Justice said.The bench, also comprising Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, directed the Election Commission of India and the Tamil Nadu Chief Electoral Officer to hold consultations with the Health Secretary and come up with a plan on following COVID-19 protocol on the counting day.The bench directed that the blueprint must be placed on record before it on April 30.”The matter will appear on April 30 to review the situation when a complete picture as to adequate steps having been taken will be clear”, the bench said in the order.Madras High Court comes down heavily on Election Commission of India @ECISVEEP for allowing political rallies during #COVIDChief Justice Sanjib Banerjee goes to the extent of saying “Election Commission officers should be booked on murder charges probably”.#ElectionCommission pic.twitter.com/AZBAbV7yi4— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 26, 2021 Click here to read/download the orderTagsMadras High Court #Election Commission of India Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy Next Storylast_img read more

Alleged hazing attack by high school football team caught on camera

first_imgObtained by ABC News(MOBILE, Ala.) — The parents of a high school freshman are demanding their son’s football coach be fired, saying their son was brutally beaten by members of his own football team in an alleged hazing attack caught on cell phone video.Fourteen-year-old Rodney Kim Jr. suffered a broken arm, busted lip and bruises on his back in the incident that occurred Friday afternoon at Davidson High School, in Mobile, Alabama, his parents told ABC News. The freshman quarterback required surgery on his broken arm.“He broke his radial bone in his forearm. His physician was able to realign his radial bone,” his mother Mary Kim told ABC News in an interview. “He’s been complaining of headaches so we took him to the hospital today, because we think he may have a concussion.”In video obtained by ABC News, a group of students can be seen apparently pummeling, kicking, and jumping on Kim Jr. in an alleged hazing ritual after they learned the freshman had made the Davidson High varsity football team. After practice on Friday, a teammate pushed him into the locker room and onto the ground, where the attack began, according to Kim Jr.Kim Jr.’s parents say they first learned of the video after it was forwarded to his sister, a senior at the high school. After seeing the video, the victim’s father, Rodney Kim Sr. was enraged.He told ABC that he first received a phone call from the school’s athletic trainer, informing him that his son had been injured at practice. He said that after further probing, the athletic director told him she believed the teen “may have been hazed” and that “a couple of guys jumped on him.”Upon arriving at the school, Kim Sr. said, he found his son alone, with his arm wrapped in ice.Kim Sr. said he brought his injured son to a local hospital, where he said a doctor later called the police to report the assault. Mobile Police arrived at the hospital later that evening, he said.In a written statement dated May 3, 2018, Mobile Chief of Police Lawrence Battiste wrote, “The Mobile Police Department is aware of the incident that occurred at Davidson High School on April 27, 2018 where a 14-year-old male student was assaulted by several teammates in the locker room after practice. We are actively investigating to determine all individuals responsible for causing the student to sustain a broken arm injury. Today, we received the social media video post of the incident and it is being reviewed. Once the investigation has concluded, we will provide an update on those arrested and the charges.”The Mobile County School District is cooperating with police and conducting its own investigation, Mobile County School District Superintendent Martha Peek told ABC News in a phone interview.Peek says all parties are cooperating with the investigation, including the school’s football coach Fred Riley. Mobile County School district has suspended four students.“It was very clear from the initial investigation that those four student were definitely involved,” Peek said. “They have been suspended. As the investigation goes on, with the police department and the school system, there could be other things that take place. There could be other people involved.”Kim Jr.’s mother is calling for more arrests.“Twenty children jumped my son and only four were suspended,” Kim said. “The police detectives told us today they are working on it, but to make more arrests, that’s up to the DA’s office.”“We have not heard from the school system period. We feel like everyone has turned their backs on us,” she said.ABC News asked the school district whether they planned to reach out to the victim’s family. Mobile School District Superintendent Martha Peek responded, “We learned of this yesterday and have been working on it. It was our understanding that the student had undergone some surgery. We were trying to be mindful of that and make sure that everything had been taken care of, before any contact was made.”Shortly after speaking with ABC, the Kim’s say they received a phone call from the school district.The school district said they plan to find out exactly what happened in that locker room.“We are trying to check out every detail and we don’t want to leave any stone uncovered,” Peek said. “It’s a bit of a complicated process to get in and get statements from everybody. But we are working on all of those things and are very disappointed that this happened.”In the meantime, Kim Jr. will have to undergo physical therapy. He is currently recovering at home, suffering from constant pain and mental trauma, his parents said. His doctor is optimistic that he will be able to return to the football field possibly next winter.“This has to stop before someone else gets injured,” Kim Sr. pleaded. “Thank God my son is here.”The Kims said, that since the incident, other parents in the community have come forward and shared similar hazing stories involving their children.“This has been going on year after year,” Kim said of the parents’ allegations. “My son just got the worst treatment.”The school district said it is investigating those claims and the coach is cooperating.Coach Riley phoned Kim Jr.’s parents the day after the incident to apologize, but Kim’s parents say it is not enough. They are demanding that he be fired. Kim is also calling for the Davidson High football team to forfeit their upcoming 2018-2019 season.“If we retaliate, when is it going to stop?” Kim said. “We need to send a strong message that this is not tolerated in America. If the adults are not the ones sending a strong message, then these kids think it’s OK.”Peek echoed similar thoughts: “When you have an incident like this, you regret it. You then need to emphasize that this is not acceptable and will not occur in the Mobile County School District again.”The Kims told ABC their son will not be returning to Davidson High School.Since the attack, three freshman players who say they did not participate in the alleged hazing incident have reached out to Kim Jr. and expressed their condolences. They plan to visit with Kim Jr. at his home.Students from a nearby private school have reached out to Kim Jr. sending their best wishes and encouraging him to attend their school and play for their football team.Coach Fred Riley was not available for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Family searching for 19-year-old Phoenix woman who vanished over a week ago

first_imgABC News(PHOENIX) — Police are searching for a 19-year-old Phoenix woman who disappeared after leaving work more than a week ago.Kiersten Bragg said her daughter, Kiera Bergman, left her job on the morning of Aug. 4, but doesn’t know if she ever made it home.“I don’t know if she ever made it back to her apartment or not. I haven’t really talked to anybody that saw her there, so I’m not quite sure where she was last seen and I’m not really getting information from people about that,” Bragg said in an interview with Good Morning America on Monday. “She does have a boyfriend. … Last I heard they were together and that is who picked her up from work that morning.”Bragg said she last spoke with Bergman via text on July 30, but she wasn’t “her normal, happy self.” Bergman left San Diego in March and moved into an apartment with her boyfriend near Phoenix, where she had recently started a new job, her mother said.“I don’t know, maybe circumstance in her life when she came out here you know caused her to maybe have some anxiety or stuff about what she was going through,” she said. “That’s when I noticed a lot of her moods and everything. That’s when she started changing, when she started dating this guy and coming out here, so I do believe that a lot — that has to do with that relationship.”Bragg and her husband arrived in Arizona from California last week to help with the search. The family says Bergman isn’t the type of person who would willingly disappear and cut communication with her family and friends.Her mother also questioned reports that she had left to “hang out” with a guy she’d just met.“To that text message that stated that she was going to hang out with a guy somewhere she met at a store, a couple days ago, that to me is not my daughter,” Bragg told GMA. “That is not something that she would just do. And then for her to leave, and leave her purse with her wallet and ID there at the apartment, that’s not normal neither — that’s why I feel like there’s something not right here.“We are going to find her, we are going to find out what happened and we’re going to bring her home,” she added.The family said it held a vigil of “hope” near the young woman’s apartment over the weekend and thanked her community for their support.“We did have the one out where we live that was some friends family and church family, and we did the one here last night. I want to clarify it’s not a vigil for a memorial,” she said. “We don’t think she’s gone, it’s more of a vigil for hope. … We all gathered and we prayed for her and for the police officers that are trying to find her.”Bragg said Phoenix police officers haven’t shared much information. Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Vincent Lewis told multiple media outlets on Saturday that there were “no updates to share at this time.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

£10,000 spent on fake Oxford room

first_imgA sixth form college in Hackney has spent £10,000 creating a copy of an Oxford tutor’s study.Formerly a staff room, the “Red Room” in BSix Brooke House Sixth Form College has been designed to make inner-city students feel less intimidated by interview surroundings. It aims to help encourage them to apply to Oxford and other top universities. £4,000 was spent on building the room and £6,000 on appropriate furnishings, including an adjacent garden with replica classical sculptures. It is modelled on the colours of Pembroke College, Oxford, as part of the “Pem-Brooke” partnership programme between the school and the College. Dr Peter Claus, senior research fellow in history at Pembroke, teaches BSix students in the Red Room three days a week, running tutorials and seminars throughout the year. He believes that all academics ought to perform a similar “public duty” in light of “urgent” social mobility problems.Last year, three quarters of the 319 BSix students who went to university were the first in their family to do so. Only 10 of those attended Russell Group institutions while just one student went to Cambridge in 2011, and another to Oxford in 2010. Headmaster Ken Warman said he was keen to grow the strategy and improve such figures. He told Cherwell, “We work with 13 other universities on similar programmes. In 2010, 10 students were on such a scheme. Our goal is that, by 2015, every student will be.”Luke Pearce, a 16-year-old student at BSix, who wants to be the first in his family to study at university by reading PPE at Oxford, approves of the room, saying, “Just stepping in makes you feel quite inspired and privileged.”Mr Warman stressed that, “If you go to Oxford it is a daunting experience. But if our students have already done it, they will be much more able to cope without being thrown by the unfamiliar surroundings.”A first-year at Wadham, also educated in East London, commented, “Although it seems like a good idea, I feel there is more emphasis on “style over substance’”, but went on to state, “that said, this style of practice might be the perfect stimulus for some students, especially in regards to self-esteem and their perception of Oxford”. Simone Webb, a first-year PPEist, was more critical, responding, “I think that £10,000 could be better spent on improving the quality of education at the sixth form, which would far better prepare students for Oxbridge admissions.”However, Mr Warman pointed out that he was “devoting the whole institution to the pursuit of high standards for all” and explained that use of the room would be open to all Hackney schools.Helen Robb, St Anne’s JCR President, felt that, “At interview, one of the most important things for all applicants is to feel confident in expressing their ideas regardless of their environment. If the study can help this in any way, then of course it’s a good thing for those applicants who have access to it.”Yet Hertford student Rhys Owens remarked: “If you’re the kind of person who gets intimidated by a building or a room, I’m doubtful as to whether applying to Oxbridge would really be the right choice.”Reacting to accusations that it was “intimidating”, the University emphasised that it is “holding more than 1,500 outreach events across the country, trying to break down some of the myths that still persist about Oxford and its admissions process”.Charlotte Hendy, Pembroke JCR President, was supportive of the scheme, adding, ‘The link between Pembroke and BSix has been an extremely successful initiative. The replication of the study at the school is just one of a number of phases that students go through to give them insight into what studying at Oxford, and other such institutions, is like. It recognises just how important it is to make the student feel comfortable and prepared for the interview process, and we hope that it will aid the scheme as it continues to go from strength to strength.’Formerly a staff room, the “Red Room” in BSix Brooke House Sixth Form College has been designed to make inner-city students feel less intimidated by interview surroundings.

For their second Beacon show last night, the band offered up one of their classic “Evening With” performance, a two-set show without openers. Following Friday night’s guest-filled second set, TTB kept things “all in the family” last night, offering up two hearty sets of originals and covers.The first set of Saturday night’s show saw the twelve-piece sounding loose and feeling at home, anchored by the husband-and-wife duo of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. Opening up with a cover of the late Aretha Franklin’s “I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)”, Tedeschi found herself front and center out of the gates, before sandwiching a take on the Derek Trucks Band’s “Mahjoun” between two songs off of 2016’s Let Me Get By, “Laugh About It” and “Just As Strange”. After moving through a soulful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On The Wire”, the band launched into one of their setlist staple Bob Dylan covers, “Down In The Flood”, which made way for “Bound For Glory”. Tedeschi Trucks Band closed out their first frame with a cover of Van Morrison’s “Call Me Up In Dreamland”.Tedeschi Trucks Band – “I Never Loved A Man” – 10/6/2018[Video: Sean Roche]Tedeschi Trucks Band – “Call Me Up In Dreamland” – 10/6/2018[Video: Sean Roche]Following a brief set break, Tedeschi Trucks Band opened up set two with “Don’t Let Me Slide”, as the twelve-piece decided to continue delivering original material, with “Midnight In Harlem” and “Right On Time” following suit. Up next was a cover of Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers’ “How Blue Can You Get?”, before offering up renditions of “Going Down Slow”, “Shame”, and “Don’t Know What It Means”, with the band firing off on all cylinders.
