How valuable are you?

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Kristin charles towne January 13, 2018 at 12:47 pm Please enter your name here Another good one Chuck! God is always ready to forgive us. I am reminded of Mat. 18: 21, when Peter asked Jesus how many times should we forgive someone, seven times? And, Jesus answered NO not seven but seventy times seven! Meaning, God’s forgiveness is always available and unlimited! If it were not so, I would have used up way more than seven times seventy…a long time ago! If God’s love is unlimited, for us, we should be more than willing to love those we daily meet, with the same love and forgiveness. Reply Reply Charles, this article was just what was needed at the end of this long day. I feel so much better having been reminded of these important truths that you put so well into words. Thank you! Reply Reply So very true Don. Guilt is an ugly burden to bear especially when it is unnecessary, and the thing to remember, once we surrender to Papa God in genuine repentance it is always unnecessary That terrible burden of guilt is a killer. When we discover the awesome love that God offers us and accept Christ’s great sacrifice, only then can we be set free. He is our best friend. Blessings on you my friend.

This is what I have concluded:  Without God, we are less than we could ever be With God we are more than we could ever be without God.   Yes, I know, it sounds convoluted but say it to yourself several times.What does the world need?  The world needs us, you and I, to be genuine children of God.Remember, we all have an equal chance of being better than we are today, and it is all summed up with the following idea. If you, that means you my friend, were the only person on earth, Jesus would have died willingly just for you!  Does that make you valuable or what? Ej charles towne January 8, 2018 at 7:53 am EJ, MAN, AINT IT THE TRUTH! Stay warm and full of joy by cuddling up to Papa God.

We have to live, love and give each day like it is our last. I had to laugh at your doctorate in messing up – I probably qualify as the professor of messing up… Great reminder to only look back to learn from our mistakes, ask for forgiveness and vow not to make the same mistake again. Oh Gymrat, that is so true! And Papa God, like the loving Father he is, looks at us as if we are precious. And if He looks at us in that light we should realize just how valuable we are. Awesome reminder Chuck, God always forgives. It’s forgiving ourselves when we mess up that’s generally the problem in my opinion. -Donnie TAGSCharles TowneInspiration Previous articleNew Pew study says local TV news viewing dropping fastNext article“Winter” in Florida Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR charles towne Look for the BEAUTIFUL!

The last paragraph about His unconditional love, keeps coming back to me. Powerful words and concept to digest. Great Read! Very encouraging to know that if you have a relationship with the MOST high you fully understand God’s purpose is to share the “Good News’” of His only begotten Son Jesus in His forgiveness of your sin. Charles understands the truth of “To live is in Christ and to die is gain,” (Phillipians 1:21).

Eddie Allen, from the marine travel company, braved the elements to raise sponsorship for the Sailors’ Society and successfully finished the 10-race in one hour and 42 minutes.Employees of the marine travel company have been enthusiastically fundraising for the Sailors’ Society, since it was selected as the firm’s Charity of the Year. Eddie is committed to supporting the charity, and raised one of the highest amounts of sponsorship that the Society has ever received from the Great South Run. His efforts were even more impressive considering he incurred an ankle injury during training, which had threatened his fitness to compete in the event.Talking about the experience, Eddie said: “To raise £500 in spite of the credit crunch is a demonstration of the support that my friends and family have for the Sailors’ Society. The sense of achievement upon crossing the finish line was great, especially knowing that I had raised lots of money for such a good cause. High-fiving the kids who were watching around the course, and the immense show of support from the Portsmouth public was awesome, and gave me a real boost that made me want to carry on when it got tough.”Eddie intends to compete in more running events for the Sailors’ Society next year, and also plans to sign up for the Deloitte and Sailors’ Society Cycle, a sponsored bike ride which will take place on 10th May 2009 in Southampton.

Serena Williams and Megan Rapinoe are fighters for racial and gender equality

first_imgPowerful women athletes are using their popularity and influence to speak out against various forms of social injustice. Two of them are Serena Williams and Megan Rapinoe. Serena, generally known by her first name, is regarded as the greatest women’s tennis player ever. Since 1999, when she was a teenager, the African-American icon has won 23 grand slam titles, — including the Australian, French, Wimbledon and U.S. Opens multiple times. In the Open era, only Margaret Court of Australia has won one more grand slam title — for a total of 24.  Serena Williams with daughter, Alexis OlympiaNow, just one month shy of her 38th birthday, Serena has played her way into three major finals since the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia, almost two years ago. She was in the first trimester of her pregnancy when she won the 2017 Australian Open. During her remarkable 20-plus-years span of playing tennis, Serena has been outspoken against the racist and sexist abuse she has endured on and off the court, along with her older sister, Venus, who has won seven grand slam titles.  During the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., which Serena won in 2001, she, as well as Venus and their father Richard Williams, were called the racist N-word epithet repeatedly. In protest, Serena decided to boycott the event until 2015.  Serena has been viciously objectified for many years, both racially and sexually, for wearing tennis outfits that proudly show her muscularly built body. The descriptions are so repulsive and heinous they should never be repeated. They reflect how Black women have been and still are degraded as being hypersexual in a society dominated by white supremacy since the days of slavery.  During Serena’s pregnancy, Ilie Nastase, a former grand slam winner from Romania, referred to her unborn child with the statement: “Let’s see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?” (New York Times, April 25, 2017)  Serena’s spouse, and father of Olympia, is white.  Serena responded to Nastase’s racist statement on Instagram:  “It disappoints me to know we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments toward myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peers. I am not afraid unlike you. You see, I am no coward. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? You may shoot me with your words, … you may try to kill me with your hatefulness, but still like air I will rise.”   Serena was referring to the International Tennis Federation’s banning of Nastase from their events for his verbal, sexist abuse of British women tennis players.  During her match with Naomi Osaka during the U.S. Open finals in August 2018, Serena was accused of cheating by a male referee, who took away a point and then a whole game, when she protested the allegation.  Serena has publicly accused referees of displaying double-standard treatment toward women tennis players, who are portrayed as hyper aggressive, while male tennis players receive only a slap on the wrist under similar circumstances. Following her loss to Simona Halep at the Wimbledon championship match on July 13, Serena was asked during her press conference whether she should concentrate on just playing tennis and not on activism. Serena replied: “The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I’m in my grave.” With those words, Serena continues to be a beacon of inspiration for all women athletes of all nationalities, ages and abilities, especially those who are working mothers.  Megan Rapinoe: another powerful voice for social justiceBlack former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, during the 2016-17 National Football League season, began to take a knee while the U.S. national anthem was played in order to protest racist police brutality. That inspired Megan Rapinoe, an openly lesbian member of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, to take a knee for the same cause, including for gender equality.  Megan Rapinoe takes a knee in September 2016She and Kaepernick took a lot of criticism for their stance, including from white-supremacist and misogynist Donald Trump, but neither one of them wavered.  Kaepernick has been denied the right to play football since his heroic act. The attacks on Rapinoe include homophobia.  Rapinoe told Yahoo Sports: “Colin Kaepernick very much inspired me, and inspired an entire nation, and still does, to actually think about these things.  The way he spoke about them so clearly, so matter-of-fact, wasn’t trying to convince anyone. Just, ‘This is what is happening, this is what I’m willing to do about it.’ I found that extremely inspiring and convicting. Like, how can you not support?” (May 13)During the 2019 World Cup games in France she refused to sing the national anthem before each match, and says she will continue to do so going forward, as a protest.  Rapinoe stated her reasons for not singing the anthem in an essay for The Players’ Tribune in 2016: “I haven’t experienced over-policing, racial profiling, police brutality or the sight of a family member’s body lying dead in the street.  But I cannot stand idly by while there are people in this country who have had to deal with that kind of heartache.“There is no perfect way to protest. I know that nothing I do will take away the pain of those families. But I feel in my heart it is right to continue to kneel during the national anthem, and I will do whatever I can to be part of the solution.” Rapinoe and the rest of the U.S. soccer team rank No. 1 worldwide. The team, which is multinational and multigendered, has put ongoing pressure on the U.S. Soccer Federation, demanding pay equity for women and gender-oppressed players. Their male counterparts make much more money and receive more benefits. All 28 women players filed a class action lawsuit against the federation this past March, charging gender bias and demanding equal pay.  The lawsuit states that between 2013 and 2016,  women soccer players could earn a maximum of $4,950 per “friendly,” or nontournament, victory, while male players earned an average of $13,166 for the same type of game. A new collective bargaining agreement with the USSF signed in 2017, which has not been made public, reportedly saw a spike in women’s salaries, but the pay for male and female athletes is still not equal.  (The Atlantic, March 19) The disparity between men and women athletes is relegated not just to soccer, but to all professional team sports, reflecting the entrenched patriarchal-dominated U.S. society.  Rapinoe has refused to visit the White House, as most championship teams, pro or amateur, are invited to do.  When asked what she would tell Trump if she had the opportunity, Rapinoe said she would ask Trump: “Do you believe that all people are created equal? Do you believe that equal pay should be mandated? Do you believe that everyone should have health care? Do you believe that we should treat everyone with respect?  I think there’s some feelings of disrespect about the anthem protests or things I’ve said in the past, but ultimately I think I am here open and honest. I think he is trying to divide so he can conquer, not unite so we can all conquer.” (Washington Post, July 14)Rapinoe says she drew inspiration from Serena, quoting verbatim from one of her press conferences on fighting for equality “until she is in her grave.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This was completed in early 2017. Hence there was a surplus of funds on the balance sheet that the article referred to for this purpose.Statement in Full -“It is with disappointment and huge concern that we read the article in the Sunday Times on December 17th and the questions raised within it regarding the operations and finances of the Good and New Shop charity.The charity operates a desperately needed bus service for cancer patients travelling to Galway and has (until the end of 2016) carried 713 people (approx. 8 – 10 trips per person) to treatment facilities not available in Donegal.We are keen to address the issues raised and want to ensure our good reputation is not tarnished in anyway so we can continue to provide this vital service.Our chairman was taken off guard when contacted by the journalist and is not used to answering media queries. He was mistaken in thinking that his accountant was away. The auditors have met with us and confirm the following details regarding our accounts.The figure of €400k mentioned in the article was from accounts filed in November 2016. It was our intention to build up this reserve which would be used to purchase a building in early 2017 (cost in the region of €270K incl legal fees, renovation, etc) to run the organisation from.  This was completed in early 2017. Hence there was a surplus of funds on the balance sheet that the article referred to for this purpose. The rest of the cash is on the balance sheet. We, like most charities, aim to keep funds of up to two years running costs in the organisation, to ensure a continued service for the charity. This is standard practice within charities nationwide and our auditors can verify that the funds are there for this purpose.The charity is an association and has a registered charity number (as per the above) but is moving to a company limited by guarantee structure which was a legal requirement to purchase the property. The CLG company is in the process of seeking charity status and is working with the Charity Regulator to finalise same.  This process can take some time hence the charity is still operating as an association until this process is completed.The organisation has, today, taken a decision to create a website for The Good and New Shop which will highlight the work and the activities of the organisation. We hope this will be launched as soon as is possible in the New Year.  It will be an excellent facility to show the work of our wonderful and very necessary volunteers.We are regulated by the charity regulator and can assure the public that the accounts and our charity status is operated meticulously to best practice standards. We intend to continue to provide this important service to the regions of Donegal and the patients who depend on this bus service for their vital cancer treatment”.
