Bishop Bill Beckham had established the diocesan connection with Bishop Luke Garnier. Since that time, I have kept current regarding the on-going relationships among the powers that be. I was so distressed to learn of these “troubles”.and the blockade created by this conflict.Thank you, Presiding Bishop Curry and Bishops of Haiti for persevering toward a working resolution as the Covenant provides. My earnest prayers and good will join countless other who will be with you all in spirit at the May Eucharist celebration and signing of the Covenant.

Curry announces a covenant into which he, Bishop Jean Zache Duracin of Haiti, Bishop Suffragan Ogé Beauvoir, and the Standing Committee have entered.The covenant “seeks to address and resolve many of the issues of conflict that have been burdening the Diocese,” brings an end to the pause on fundraising by the Episcopal Church and opens new possibilities for a united future as the diocese prepares to elect its next bishop diocesan in 2018.As noted in the presiding bishop’s letter to the parties and shared with the Church, “The Covenant has entirely resolved the Title III matter that involved Suffragan Bishop Beauvoir’s relationship with the Standing Committee of the Diocese.  Further, the Covenant, together with the Memorandum of Understanding [providing guidance for mission partnerships]…fully resolved the Title IV matter that has been pending against Bishop Duracin.”The presiding bishop will celebrate the Holy Eucharist with the clergy and people in Port-au-Prince May 23. The liturgy will include a formal signing of the covenant, which is now in effect, having been signed by all parties.In his letter to Duracin,  Beauvoir, and the Standing Committee,  Curry said, “This Covenant seeks to address and resolve many of the issues of conflict that have been burdening the Diocese, and sets the stage for a healthy and positive way forward for the Diocese and the Diocese’s relationship with the larger Church.  I am grateful to both of my brother bishops and also the President and members of the Standing Committee for their willingness to reach a Covenant which I believe serves the cause of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in  Haiti for the continued rebuilding and renewal after the earthquake and as the Diocese of Haiti  prepares to elect its next Bishop Diocesan.”He added, “I am pleased by these measures, as they reflect a commitment by all parties to the ongoing work of healing and reconciliation.  This would not have been possible without the steadfast prayers of faithful Episcopalians in Haiti and throughout the wider church. And I know we will all continue to pray for the people of Haiti, the Diocese of Haiti, and the ministry of risen Lord Jesus Christ there and in all of the countries of the Episcopal Church.”The Covenant in English is here and in French here.The Presiding Bishop’s letter in full follows:Monday in Easter WeekApril 17, 2017Brothers and Sisters in Christ,During this holy season commemorating the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ it is with genuine thankfulness that I am able to share the following good news with you.  The  Bishop of Haiti, the Bishop Suffragan of Haiti the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Haiti and I as your Presiding Bishop have entered into a Covenant with one another.This Covenant seeks to address and resolve many of the issues of conflict that have been burdening the Diocese, and sets the stage for a healthy and positive way forward for the Diocese and the Diocese’s relationship with the larger Church.  I am grateful to both of my brother bishops and also the President and members of the Standing Committee for their willingness to reach a Covenant which I believe serves the cause of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in  Haiti for the continued rebuilding and renewal after the earthquake and as the Diocese of Haiti  prepares to elect its next Bishop Diocesan.The Covenant has entirely resolved the Title III matter that involved Suffragan Bishop Beauvoir’s relationship with the Standing Committee of the Diocese.  Further the Covenant, together with the Memorandum of Understanding (both attached)  reached by Bishop Duracin and myself last year, and pastoral conversations between Bishop Duracin and myself have fully resolved the Title IV matter that has been pending against Bishop Duracin.  I am pleased by these measures, as they reflect a commitment by all parties to the ongoing work of healing and reconciliation.Let me tell you how we got to this point.  As I announced on December 1, 2016, I appointed a three-person panel (the Rt. Rev. Stephen T. Lane, Bishop of Maine; the Rev. P. Roger Bowen; and Paul B. Nix, Jr., Esquire, In-house Counsel for the DFMS in New York)  to investigate the situation. (See). After careful interviews and listening to both bishops, to the Standing Committee, and to a group of clergy identified by Bishop Beauvoir as having important concerns, the panel reported the following:First, they reported that nearly everyone involved was deeply wounded by things that others have said, and their pain was real and deep.  Despite this, relationships among the clergy are generally regarded as “fundamentally sound.”  While the tensions among the clergy have been severe, there appeared to be a willingness and perhaps strong desire among many of the clergy to try to achieve resolution among them.  The clergy have worked with each other for a long time, and their commitment to the Diocese was evident.  There was a general sense that good relationships among the clergy can be recovered with courageous and careful work.  There was also a shared sense that there is much important work to do in the Diocese that is not being attended to because of the energy taken up by current disputes, and an eagerness to get on with that important work.In contrast to the relationships among the clergy, it appeared to many that the brokenness of the relationship between the two bishops was not retrievable, at least at this crucial time.  There was evidence of a profound lack of trust between the bishops, manifested in part by multiple reports of their openly trading insults.  The state of their relationship had given rise to much sadness, frustration, and anger, not just between the bishops, but also among the clergy, some of whom may have loyalties to one bishop or the other, but who also sense that the struggle between the bishops has cast an unhealthy overlay to the functioning of the Diocese.Finally, each clergy group expressed deep concerns about the exercise of authority of one or the other of the bishops, which each group believed is not serving the best interests of the Diocese.  There were concerns that Bishop Beauvoir, before taking his leave of absence, exercised his role as Suffragan Bishop without a full appreciation of the limits of the authority of that office, such that his actions undermined the good order of the Church.  On the other hand, there was evidence that Bishop Duracin has failed to support Bishop Beauvoir’s suffragan episcopate, financially and otherwise.  There were also concerns that Bishop Duracin exercises his authority to transfer clergy around the Diocese in ways that are widely perceived as improperly rewarding or punishing those he favors or disfavors.  There was also a fear that the upcoming process to elect a successor to Bishop Duracin will lack integrity by excluding the voices of clergy who are not in all ways aligned with Bishop Duracin.In the light of this complicated and heartbreaking situation, and with all the best hope and prayers for a positive, forward-looking outcome for the health of the Diocese of Haiti, I proposed a Covenant to be entered into by Bishop Duracin, Bishop Beauvoir, the Standing Committee of the Diocese, and myself.  It was my hope that this Covenant would provide the basis for resolving the Title III and Title IV proceedings then pending, and would set a course for a healthy Diocese and upcoming episcopal election.After deep conversations and negotiation, we have now reached a Covenant with which all parties are comfortable, and that everyone has now signed.  The text of the Covenant is found below, as is the text of the Memorandum of Understanding which provides a template for our partnerships characterized by equality in decision making and relationship, financial transparency, accountability and mutuality in mission whether in Haiti, elsewhere in the Episcopal Church or beyond.  With the Covenant and the Memorandum of Understanding now agreed to and in place the pause that I placed on fund raising for Haiti is lifted.Lastly, while the Covenant has been agreed to and signed by us all, we will all come together for the formal liturgical signing of the Covenant in the context of the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 10:00 am  at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Port Au Prince, Haiti.I am truly thankful for Bishop Duracin and Bishop Beauviour, the clergy and lay leaders of the Diocese of Haiti and for all throughout the Episcopal Church who have prayed and worked for this moment.May the blessings of the Crucified and Risen Lord Jesus be with us all as we go forward together to proclaim the Good News into God’s new future.Your brother,+MichaelThe Most Reverend Michael B.

Thank you, all, for putting the wellbeing of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti and the people of Haiti above your own concerns in this “complicated and heartbreaking situation.” These agreements are truly miraculous — and will require continued prayer and diligence in the “ongoing work of healing and reconciliation.”On a more practical note, the Presiding Bishop’s letter states that both the Covenant and the Memorandum of Understanding (on mission partnerships) were attached to his letter. However, links are provided here only to the Covenant. Could links to the MOU (in both French and English) be provided, as well, please? Many thanks.

As the UK Stock Market continues to tumble and uncertainty abounds in response to the world’s coronavirus pandemic, there’s an eery similarity to the 1929 stock market crash on Wall Street.The 1929 stock market crash, or Great Crash, is considered to be the most destructive stock market crash in US history, mainly because it signalled the start of the Great Depression. A big crash on the London Stock Exchange also preceded it on September 20 1929.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Financial pandemoniumCovid-19 is bad news for stocks as well as a tragedy for people. The world’s financial markets have rarely seen such turmoil across the board. The FTSE 100 fell 7.7% a week ago on March 9, three days later it fell 10.9% and today it’s down 7.7% as I write.The Fed yesterday cut interest rates to zero and The Bank of England cut its interest rate to 0.25% last week. The government has pledged billions of pounds to help businesses and individuals cope with the downturn, but none of it appears to be making any difference and the stock markets continue to fall.Bargain sharesAs the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 crash, many companies are looking at an uncertain future. I think dividend cuts are on the cards and some businesses may well face go under as they did in the 1929 stock market crash.However, the FTSE is full of strong businesses and I do think many companies will survive. At the Fool, we take a long-term view of investing and this is a time to look to buy such businesses for the future, possibly the distant future.I’d avoid oil stocks and any firms with high levels of debt. I don’t think we’ve reached the bottom of the crash yet, so it’s a time to be researching and creating a watchlist of good quality companies to buy when the market shows signs of recovery.I think a global recession is now likely, as is an extended bear market. For active investors, this doesn’t have to be as bad as it may sound.Long-term investing should be for a period of years. It’s about buying shares in good quality companies that can stand the test of time. Although the market may have further to fall, as it did in the 1929 stock market crash, this means overpriced companies become affordable and strong businesses become value plays.Seek safe sectorsThe demise of FlyBe and the spectacular Cineworld share price fall (down 75% in a month) are clear warnings for their sectors. Meanwhile, the Tesco share price hasn’t suffered too badly in comparison, down 14% in a month. It’s well placed to cater to the panic-buying masses and geared to provide its grocery home-delivery service to those in self-isolation, unlike the budget supermarkets, Lidl and Aldi.The Reckitt Benckiser share price is down 16% in a month but as the maker of Dettol, it looks to be experiencing heightened demand for some of its products.I’d be wary of buying any of these stocks too soon though, in case the market has further to fall. But I think it’s wise to be researching good buys for the future.There are many top quality companies on the FTSE 350 but even if this does end up being as bad as the 1929 stock market crash, it will eventually recover and savvy investors will have made their fortunes. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay The FTSE 100 crash continues, reminiscent of the 1929 stock market crash!center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.
