We are blessed to have this technology available to us, and I look forward to our diocese and congregations entering into this initiative,” said Brown Snook.Fellowship Energy Finance, a lead partner in the endeavor, is focused on providing churches with the financing options for solar-powered energy solutions. It is providing zero-down financing so that churches can start saving on their energy costs.“Bringing solar panels to our churches serves a dual purpose: reducing utility costs to the congregations and being good stewards of God’s creation,” said the Rev. Kirby Smith, chief financial officer of the diocese. “We are all called to be responsible for maintaining our environment so it may be a healthy and safe place for those who come after us. We are temporary custodians of all that God has provided. Money that congregations spend on electricity can’t be spent on mission and ministry. In light of that, it is incumbent for congregations to seek ways of using power more efficiently,” said Smith.The Episcopal Church Building Fund, a partner in the solar program, is helping churches thrive through the investigation of strategic, resourceful and creative uses of church buildings. ECBF loans are available to Episcopal congregations for building and renovation projects for churches, schools, rectories and expansions of ministry projects.The steps associated with participating in the initiative – going solar – are low-contact activities. Local church solar teams can meet virtually. Even when church campuses are closed due to COVID-19, this program can still move forward.

Harvard Law School: The road to marriage equality

first_imgSince at least 1983, when a Harvard Law student wrote a third-year paper exploring a human rights argument for same-sex marriage, HLS has participated in anticipating, shaping, critiquing, analyzing and guiding the long path toward marriage equality.In the 1980s, Harvard Law students wrote papers and student notes  debating the pros and cons of a constitutional right to same-sex marriage in the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses. Those students graduated and became advocates who argued before legislatures and courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, both for and against legal recognitions of same-sex marriage. Others eventually became judges whose decisions created a legal basis for marriage equality, and some became scholars whose contributions inspired a new generation of students, advocates, and judges to think critically and creatively about LGBT rights. Together, they helped shape the course of a social and legal movement that surprised many by its swift changes in both public perception and legal doctrine. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Syracuse smashes South Carolina State, 101-59

first_imgAgainst one of the worst teams in the country, Syracuse needed a full half to kick into gear.A first 20 minutes that were anything but flawless from the hosts gave way to an onslaught, though. Six players scored in double figures and every rotation player that stepped on the court scored at least twice.SU’s 15-point halftime lead ballooned into a 42-point cushion by game’s end, and No. 18 Syracuse (4-0) cruised to an 101-59 win against South Carolina State (1-3) in its last tune-up before facing South Carolina on Saturday at Barclays Center.After racing out to a 15-3 lead to begin the game, the Orange only outscored the Bulldogs by three points the rest of the half.SU’s press had holes — and a lot of them. The 320th-best team in the country, according to Kenpom.com, seamlessly skipped passes across the court to crack the seams and set up its offense in the halfcourt. And with Syracuse’s two centers prone to committing fouls, South Carolina State attacked the basket, racking up double-digit points in transition in the first half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLuckily for the Orange though, it was still South Carolina State. Even a sluggish opening 20 minutes ended with Syracuse leading, 46-31, thanks to John Gillon’s team-leading 10 points at the break and SU’s 50-percent mark from distance. The Bulldogs shot just 1-of-11 from 3.The Orange’s hot streak from deep carried over to the second half, when Andrew White and Tyler Lydon canned a pair of 3s before the first media timeout. SU moved the ball with ease around S.C. State’s 2-3 zone and capitalized from distance when it had the chance. The Bulldogs carried its poor first half from 3 into the second frame, missing its first three long balls.Slowly, the Orange widened its lead and buried the sloppiness that prevented it from pulling away well before it actually did. By the 11-minute mark of the second half, Syracuse boasted four double-digit scorers and led by 26.From there, it was a formality. Lydon hit his third straight 3 to earn tacos for the crowd, also logging the team’s first double-double this season. Taurean Thompson viciously swatted a shot from behind, leading to a Tyler Roberson two-handed flush at the other end. The walk-on brigade strutted onto the court with 3:05 left in the game, and SU closed out its fourth effortless win of the season.
