The people and the land will always have a sacred place in my heart. The decades of the sixties thru the nineties when I lived and served in North Dakota are filled with so many wonderful memories. I remember St. James from several visits there and at many diocesan functions I met so many of the saints that lived and served there.I was serving as deacon at Gethsemane in Fargo during the time of that fire which too was a tragedy but we rose up from the ashes as I believe the people of St. James will do also.Julian of Norwich reminds us:I saw that God is to us everything that is good and comfortable for us: God is our clothing that for love wraps us, clasps us, and all encloses us for tender love, that God may never leave us; being to us all-thing that is good, as to my understanding.

Canon John Floberg, who has served as St. James’ rector for 21 years and is canon missioner for native ministry in the Diocese of North Dakota. “Flames spread quickly through the parish hall to the church itself, and by quarter of eleven the whole structure was engulfed in flames. It’s all ash today.”July 25 is a major feast day on the Episcopal Church calendar; it is the day it commemorates St. James the Apostle.The cause of the fire is under investigation, said Floberg, adding that the church was a wooden structure and at least the second church built on that site.“I feel like I lost a family member. Very sad,” the Rev. Terry Star, a deacon who serves the Standing Rock Episcopal Community and is a member of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, said on his Facebook wall early July 26.Star grew up at St. James’ and has served the congregation in the past.St. James’ Episcopal Church in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, before a fire destroyed the property on July 25.St. James’ congregation was established in 1890 in Cannon Ball, which is part of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation, and has been home to generations of Episcopalians, Floberg said.Cannon Ball, in the south central part of the state, was the first place the Episcopal Church was established on the North Dakota reservation. Three other congregations trace their roots to St. James, according to the diocesan website. Services there include hymns in the Dakota language.“It’s a family church,” Floberg said, adding that there are about 250 members in a community of 800 people where half the population is under the age of 20. “So last night and today we’ve been dealing with the grief that people have over losing the building that has always been the building that they have called their church.”North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith will gather with the St. James community at noon on Sunday, July 29, for Holy Eucharist at the site of the destroyed church.Meanwhile, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Fargo, in eastern North Dakota, echoed the diocese’s call for prayers for St. James and announced that it would take up a collection for the congregation on July 29.Sioux County, where Cannon Ball is located, is one of the poorest counties in North Dakota and among the top ten poorest in the nation, Floberg said. The county has a population of about 4,200 people spread over about 1,100 square miles, all of it reservation land. Just more than 47 percent of those people lived below the poverty line during the period from 2006 to 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.Floberg said that when the church was built, the bishop at the time wanted the congregation to build a stone structure that could withstand the harsh winds, but the people of St. James’ didn’t have the money.“Our congregation serves in one of North Dakota’s toughest towns,” St. James says in its listing on the diocesan website. “Addiction to alcohol and unemployment are both very high. But we aren’t going to give up. The church has been with us for almost 115 years and is important to us and our community.”— Lynette Wilson and the Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg are editors/reporters for the Episcopal News Service. July 27, 2012 at 10:16 am My prayers are with you all. May God’s presence be felt with your church family, may you find a locaton to gather locally and the building be quickly rebuilt.

My mother will be 97 this year, and has expressed a desire to be buried with her family at St. James when that time comes. She wishes to travel there this summer, if she is able, to visit her family’s graves. She told me the church had burned, and I am delighted to read that it may have been rebuilt. Curate Diocese of Nebraska The Rev. Ann Fontaine says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH July 26, 2012 at 11:00 pm The first time I laid eyes on St. James church was when I was a teenager, encountering one of the first transformational experiences of my life, leaving my own bubble of privilege and having the honor of being able to visit and work with people who have my respect to this day and beyond. The church was smaller than any I’d ever been in, but there was a great sense of peace and love within its walls, and though the structure may be gone, that peace will stay in my heart forever. I hope that it will be rebuilt soon, stronger than before so that the community will have a place to share and worship together.

The BLF has been campaigning for this service to be made widely available across the UK. Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes improve the health and confidence of people with lung illness. The April appeal tied in with the campaigning work being undertaken.It included interviews with patients currently on rehab programmes and respiratory consultants who have supported the BLF’s campaign. Almost double the amount of income was received compared to the April 2002 warm appeal.BLF attribute this increase in performance over the last year is due to “strong in-house creative ideas being produced, increasingly sophisticated targeting and a program of testing that has seen results increase dramatically.”Next year the BLF will undertake its largest ever acquisition mailing program. The team have set the target of nearly doubling the size of their warm donor base to 30,000. It will also see the charity’s largest telemarketing campaign to date to convert cash donors to committed giving with a target of 1,000 new regular givers.These activities form part of the British Lung Foundation’s plans to increase annual income from individuals by £700,000 by 2006. Donations from direct mail fundraising to the British Lung Foundation (BLF) have risen by nearly 40% in one year to over £254,000, beating last year’s income by £71,000.Return on investment for the Direct Marketing and Donor Development team has doubled from 3:1 to 6:1 on appeals and raffles to warm donors. Average response rates have risen from 8.3% to 14.15 % on appeals to warm donors. The team have also doubled cold mailing response rates and raised reciprocal mailing response rates by one third.BLF’s Direct Marketing and Donor Development Manager, Richard Yorke, said: “The success we have had over the last year is due to time spent thinking creatively about every aspect of our direct marketing programme and ensuring that we are constantly challenging ourselves to improve.” Advertisement Donations rise by 40% in one year at lung charity Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Individual giving Research / statistics

Local News Pinterest Facebook OPD sees rise in family violence during holidays WhatsApp By admin – January 3, 2018 Twitter Dumped tires sit on the side of W. 3rd st. near Fortune 500 Avenue in West Odessa. Christmas is a time of year that brings families together, as people sometimes travel across the country to spend their morning exchanging gifts with their loved ones. But for some, Christmas can be a great time of stress for family members, and sometimes even violence.Between the period of Dec. 26 and Dec. 28, Odessa Police Department records show officers filed about 23 separate charges related to family violence or crimes committed against family members. Eight of those charges were issued on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.OPD Spokesman Cpl. Steve LeSueur said it’s not unusual to see a rise in family violence charges around this time of year, and they usually have a high amount of domestic disturbance calls. He said the rise in the charges can be attributed mostly to the large amount of family members visiting from out of town, causing an increase in crime, both related and unrelated to family violence.LeSueur added that OPD conducts several assignments during the holiday season and increases their patrol numbers to handle this increase in disturbance calls.Karen Hildebrand, Executive Director of the Crisis Center of West Texas, said that while their shelter in Odessa usually sees a decrease in the number of women staying with them during the holiday season, there does seem to be a rise in domestic violence incidents nationally.“Because people are trying to stay together for the holidays, there does seem to be an uptick in the number of incidents due to financial strain, families in close quarters during the holidays, and an increased use of alcohol possibly related to the holidays,” Hildebrand said.Hildebrand added that the best way to prevent domestic violence from happening is to seek help. The Crisis Center of West Texas offers several services including free counseling, support groups and case managers, she added.“We know that children are the most impacted by witnessing domestic violence in their homes and we don’t want that to happen,” she said. “The best way to do that is to reach out for help.”The Crisis Center of West Texas has a 24-hour hotline for issues related to domestic violence or sexual assault and can be reached at 1-866-627-4747. They also accept walk-ins for crisis intervention and advocacy between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at their office at 910-B S.
