Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Federal Way, Washington] Una nueva herramienta que está utilizando un creciente número de congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal invita a los episcopales a cambiar su enfoque de la obra de la misión: No precipitarse a evaluar necesidades a fin de concebir programas que respondan a esas necesidades; en lugar de eso escuchen, creen relaciones, descúbranse mutuamente los dones y disciernan cómo usar esos dones para edificar juntos la comunidad.“El Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos [ABCD por su sigla en inglés] es un enfoque que nos pide que miremos y nos acerquemos al mundo de manera diferente”, dijo el Rdo. Canónigo E. Mark Stevenson en un Llamado a la Transformación, un reciente taller del ABCD de la zona de Washington.“No es nuestra tarea transformar la escasez en abundancia, eso es tarea de Dios. Dios nos da lo que necesitamos en toda circunstancia y en todo lugar”, dijo Stevenson, director del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración. “Dios nos ha dado bastante y, si le ofrecemos ese don a Dios, Dios lo torna en abundancia”.Esto no es ingenuidad ni una actitud polianista [de extremo optimismo] hacia los problemas que enfrentan las personas y las comunidades, expresó: el ABCD no consiste “simplemente en alimentar al hambriento ni en albergar a los desamparados; sino en desarrollar la capacidad de la comunidad para crear un ambiente de oportunidad para todos”.La tarea consiste en cultivar un espacio donde todos sepan que son amados y respetados porque son hijos de Dios y tienen “la capacidad no de ser servidos, sino de otorgar sus dones en servicio” a sus comunidades, afirmó. El ABCD pasa de los remedios urgentes a la transformación a largo plazo.Stevenson dijo que la labor del ABCD es más como una peregrinación que lo que tiene de turismo —es decir, aquellos que quisieran “llevar a cabo su compromiso” con una comunidad deben llegar como peregrinos dispuestos a ser vulnerables y dispuestos a aprender de los miembros de la comunidad a la cual han llegado.Resulta fácil ser inducido a creer que sólo cierta gente con acceso a recursos específicos, tales como dinero, pueden llegar a hacer algo por los problemas del mundo, dijo Sean McConnell —director principal de participación en la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo que coauspicia los talleres con la Iglesia Episcopal— a los participantes del taller de Seattle.McConnell dijo que el personal de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo ve las comunidades con las que trabajan en todo el mundo como llenas de personas que esperan que sus comunidades puedan mejorar a pesar de algunos déficits obvios. “La clave para ello es la esperanza”, agregó.El Rdo. Bill Osborne, de la Diócesis de Spokane, abajo a la izquierda; Suzy Ward, de la Diócesis de San Joaquín, arriba a la izquierda; Allan Miles, de la Diócesis de Oregón, arriba a la derecha; y Candice Corrigan, de la Diócesis de Olympia, abajo a la derecha, crean un mapa de recursos del Centro de la Bahía de Dumas en Federal Way, Washington, el lugar de reunión del taller de junio del Llamado a la Transformación, un taller de formación de facilitadores para el Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos. La localización de recursos es una técnica del ABCD para descubrir las posibilidades de una comunidad. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSUn paso inicial en el proceso del ABCD conlleva la localización de recursos de una comunidad y de las personas que la integran —desde personas hasta tierras, de edificios hasta fe, de dinero hasta relaciones y de influencia política hasta pasiones— en lugar de rastrear sus necesidades y sus déficits, señaló.Localizar tan sólo las necesidades de una comunidad, advirtió McConnell, da lugar a una financiación categórica que fuerza a la gente a competir por el dinero de una manera que obstaculiza la creación de relaciones y fomenta, en su lugar, ciclos de dependencia y de desesperanza. Un mapa de recursos brinda una senda para concebir creativamente el modo de usar la abundancia para lograr metas e imaginar nuevas formas de ministerio.Un ejemplo del ABCD en acción que los participantes del taller aprenden es el Centro de Jubileo de la Avenida 32 en el noroeste de Denver, Colorado. El centro se desarrolló a partir de la misión y ministerio de la iglesia episcopal de Nuestro Misericordioso Salvador [Our Merciful Savior Episcopal Church] y en 2013 se encontró atendiendo a menos personas al tiempo que enfrentaba dificultades económicas. Lelanda Lee, vicepresidente de la junta del centro y ex miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, que ha ayudado a otras partes de la Iglesia a usar el ABCD, sugirió que usaran sus métodos para hacer que la gente del barrio participara del futuro del centro.El proceso inicial llevó un año y, como Lee les explicó a los participantes del taller de Seattle a través de un vídeo, mostró que la labor del ABCD es un proceso continuo de participación, conversación, reflexión y renovado compromiso con la comunidad.El mismo acto de hacer preguntas acerca de lo que las personas esperan para su comunidad y de los dones que pueden aportar a la realización de esos sueños comienzan a cambiar a las personas y a la comunidad, dijeron los participantes. El centro supo que lo reconocían como parte neutral y líder en la comunidad y que podía seguir siendo un coordinador de las conversaciones para fomentar relaciones entre las muchas voces del barrio.Detalles del proyecto experimental del ABCD del Centro de Jubileo de la Avenida 32 y sus perspectivas se encuentran aquí.Veintisiete clérigos y laicos de toda la Iglesia Episcopal se unieron a seis miembros del personal en el Centro de la Bahía de Dumas en Federal Way, Washington, del 13 al 16 de junio, para participar en un Llamado a la Transformación, taller de formación de facilitadores del ABCD. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Poner a funcionar los métodos del ABCDEl Rdo. Hunter Ruffin y la Rda. Janet Tidwell son enérgicos defensores de los métodos del Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos.Para Tidwell, una de los siete miembros de la Diócesis de Atlanta que asistió a un taller anterior de Llamado a la Transformación que tuvo lugar en Denver, el ABCD empieza por cambiar radicalmente los conceptos de las personas respecto a la eficacia y dirección de su trabajo de misión. Ella dijo que la pregunta implícita que cuestiona el ministerio al que pueden estar dedicados es: “funciona para usted, ¿pero está funcionando para esas personas con las que están intentando trabajar?”Tidwell, una de los dos arcedianos de la diócesis, ha aprendido que las personas en quienes se percibe una necesidad esperan [entablar] relaciones con otras personas que estarán en contacto con ellas, en lugar de ser simplemente los receptores de obras de caridad de personas que finalmente se marcharán. El ABCD también abre la oportunidad para que las personas retribuyan a sus comunidades en lugar de depender solamente de la ayuda exterior.Ese enfoque, dijeron tanto Tidwell como Ruffin, desafía a muchos en un comité de compromiso comunitario.“Uno tiene realmente que vender esta idea a las parroquias”, dijo Tidwell, porque ellas han estado trabajando conforme al paradigma de que los miembros vayan a la comunidad, les digan a los residentes lo que necesitan y se lo den. “Es importante que la gente entienda que no se trata de una nueva curita”, afirmó.La Rda. Sue Thompson, de la Diócesis de Olympia, y Spencer Cantrell, de la Diócesis de Tennessee Oriental y estudiante del Seminario Teológico General, trabajan en el ejercicio de la creación de un equipo en el taller de formación de facilitadores del ABCD un Llamado a la Transformación, que tuvo lugar del 13 al 16 de junio. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSY alguien que asista a un taller del ABCD no regresará con un plan secuencial, bien estructurado para llevar a cabo el trabajo social en su parroquia y su comunidad, advirtió ella. Lo que llevarán de regreso son algunas ideas respecto a cómo empezar a llegar a conocer a una comunidad y a edificar esa especie de confianza que permita que la comunidad aporte sus dones.Ruffin, que pronto celebrará su primer año como sacerdote y asociado para la misión y el trabajo comunitario en la iglesia de San Miguel y Todos los Ángeles [St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church] en Houston, Texas, conviene en que recurrir al funcionamiento del ABCD significa alejarse de muchas actitudes y supuestos respecto al quehacer social [de la Iglesia]. Esto es particularmente cierto, dice él, en una parroquia como San Miguel y Todos los Ángeles, que tiene los recursos para “sencillamente decidir hacer algo y hacerlo casi inmediatamente”.Después de asistir al taller de un Llamado a la Transformación en San Luis, Ruffin comenzó a trabajar con el equipo de liderazgo de la misión y el servicio comunitario de la parroquia, el cual tiene a su cargo ayudar a discernir donde está llamado a encontrarse San Miguel en medio de la comunidad en general.“Lo que estamos teniendo que hacer es sacar la gente de sus propias trincheras”, dijo él, porque, como en casi todas las parroquias, “la gente está realmente atada a sus actividades comunitarias”. El trabajo no consiste en criticar sus esfuerzos, sino en ayudarlos a desconectarse lo bastante de ellos para que planteen interrogantes sobre su eficacia, dijo Ruffin.Trabajando a partir de ese grupo con la junta parroquial y con toda la parroquia, Ruffin ayuda a dirigir un proceso de localización de dones y recursos. Espera que al final ese Pentecostés será el foco de la idea incipiente de que “el dinero no es la única divisa que tenemos para intercambiar” y que, por el contrario, la divisa de más valor son los diversos dones que se ofrecen en el servicio con otros.¿Su consejo a otros que quieran poner en práctica el ABCD? No vengan buscando la última novedad en el ministerio; busquen, más bien, medios de “capacitar genuinamente a su parroquia para que reconozcan sus dones en el marco de una comunidad mayor” y se prepare a ir lentamente y a ser rechazada. Ruffin dijo también, prepárense para “la voz contracultural que dice ‘desaceleren, oren, escuchen, repitan’”.Forma de los talleresEl Llamado a la Transformación es una asociación entre la Iglesia Episcopal y la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo. Los talleres están concebidos para capacitar a líderes en los métodos y herramientas que expandan el ministerio y la misión locales para operar no sólo en sus propias comunidades, sino para ser facilitadores en otras comunidades que se beneficiarían de este enfoque.El Rdo. Joshua Kingsley, de la Diócesis de Oregón, a la derecha, y Greg Rhodes, de la Diócesis de Olympia, comparten el almuerzo en el jardín urbano de la catedral de San Marcos [St. Mark’s Cathedral] en Seattle durante el taller de formación de facilitadores del ABCD Llamado a la Transformación, que tuvo lugar en junio. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Los participante se reúnen por lo general la primera noche para una eucaristía de apertura y otra labor introductoria. El primer día completo del taller es, en palabras de Stevenson, un montón de información sobre el ABCD, parejo con ejercicios individuales y colectivos para empezar a trabajar con los conceptos de la metodología, especialmente la idea de localizar los recursos de una comunidad. Los participantes dedican la mayor parte de la segunda jornada completa a recorrer la comunidad local para visitar organizaciones —tanto seculares como religiosas— que han utilizado el ABCD para conformar su labor. El taller concluye con una sesión de media jornada centrada en comenzar a diseñar un plan para poner en práctica el proyecto del Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos cuando ya se esté de regreso.Otros dos talleres de Llamado a la Transformación, del ABCD, están programados para 2016. Está abierta la matrícula para una sesión del 8 al 11 de agosto en Nashotah House, en Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Se planea otro taller para el otoño.Lea más acerca de esto. La página web de Llamado a la Transformación tiene cierto número de materiales aquí.La Iglesia Episcopal y la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo crearon las herramientas de la página web y el proceso de formación de facilitadores con ayuda del Centro Beecken de la Escuela de Teología en la Universidad del Sur.La Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo tiene una explicación de cómo utiliza los métodos del ABCD, junto con algunos relatos que ilustran su uso, aquí. – La Rda.

Moreover, the surrounding area is crowded. Dividing an irregular urban block into rectangular lots one by one from the parts adjacent to the road, finally a secluded lot that is hard to use is left over, which is what is called “anko”(it means Japanese sweets wrapped with rice cake), and that is exactly this site. Further, a maximum volume allowed by the code results in triangular one. A building had to be set in this triangular volume. However we work out, we are bound to the shape of the site, but our idea was to try to search possibility that can’t conceive without “heta-ti”.

Next, we tried to correspond to the function that is necessary for residential space by working out the cutting angle, such as inclining outward, inward or not parallel. For example, concerning “sumi-kiri” on the south side, the exterior walls incline outward according to the need of building eaves over the terrace as a drying area, and that on the west, they incline inward and also don’t make parallel in order to make side wall blocking the view from the street. In a similar way, concerning on the east side, we worked out the cutting angle on basis of inside demands. Further, concerning an observation platform that the clients requested for strongly, we were able to make this space by cutting off the top of the roof plane controlled by legal restrictions. The exterior wonderful form is created by a simple rule “sumi-kiri”, and because of optical illusion, the exterior wall appears to incline. Save this picture!“syakkei” – comes from Japanese gardening “borrowing” mountains, etc. for a background This site is surrounded by rectangular lots. In each adjacent site’s corner, unused spaces are left over although they are small. By adding the triangular exterior space to spaces with the site boundary in between, collected open spaces to some extent are created. That is, the void always exists outside openings. The rectangular neighboring houses don’t take trouble to make openings toward each site’s corner. Consequently, the clients can have the open space to themselves. Its “shakkei” looks like alchemy and it is the power that a triangular “heta-ti” has potentially and inevitably. Save this picture!Renovation A reinforced concrete basement of existing residence was fit in old retained wall facing to the adjacent site on the north side that is one-story lower. Though we were judged that it is impossible to reuse it from a structural point of view, we were not able to pull it down within budget. Moreover, in a small site, we must make spaces for three generations family of six, so by pouring concrete into existing reinforced concrete basement as a substitute of mold, we decided to make a basement one size smaller than existing. We may say that this is the renovation in a broad sense. Consequently, within substantially three-story height, seven floor in all – including under floor storage (will be used as private room for husband in the future), a bunk bed and an observation platform – are layered. We feel like this residence has used up this site not only horizontally but also vertically. Save this picture!There is luck in the leftovers. 0r perhaps, it may be more than.

I felt as if I had lost everything on Sunday night.” Leyva told Pasadena Now.“We’re trying to salvage what we can, some photos and things. Some things are completely destroyed, and some things are untouched,” Leyva said.Leyva, who slept in her car outside the home on Sunday night, said she was approached by neighbors who sifted through the damage and recovered clothes, which they took home and returned to her washed and folded.“Everyone has been here for us, even strangers.

What commisery? UK’s high street agents are best value in Europe

first_imgEstate agents fed up with having to justify their fees in the face of ‘commisery’ criticism by fixed-fee hybrids like Purplebricks can take solace from a new report published by comparison site GetAgent.It has canvassed selling rates across the EU and discovered that the UK is the cheapest among all the 28 member states. Or at least it will be until we leave.GetAgent says it reckons the average sales fee charged by UK sales agents excluding VAT is 1.2%, much lower than our nearest rivals for good value, Denmark (1.25%) and Ireland (1.75%).The three most expensive, by comparison, are Romania (6%), Malta (6%) and both Cyprus and France at 5%, although the lower average house price in these countries compared to the UK mean the overall commissoin paid is likely to be lower.“I think it’s fair to say that estate agents in the UK have a tough time of it when it comes to justifying their fees, with the predominant opinion being that they charge to much for the service provided,” says GetAgent CEO Colby Short (left).“This really isn’t the case and as this research shows, the UK is actually home to the lowest estate agent fees in the EU and therefore you could argue, the best service as well.“So while you consider if three to four thousand pounds is a justifiable spend when selling a property for hundreds of thousands, remember you could be paying upward of ten thousand if you were to live in another area of the EU.”The full listUK 1.2%Denmark 1.25%Ireland 1.75%Greece 2%Lithuania 2.25%Spain 2.75%Belgium 3%Croatia 3%Estonia 3%Luxembourg 3%Netherlands 3%Poland 3%Austria 3.5%Finland 3.75%Czech Republic 4%Hungary 4%Latvia 4%Portugal 4%Slovenia 4%Sweden 4%Germany 4.5%Slovakia 4.5%Italy 4.5%France 5%Cyprus 5%Malta 5%Romania 6% get agent Purplebricks sales commissions March 28, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentRichard Rawlings, Estate Agency Insight Estate Agency Insight 28th March 2019 at 9:47 amEurope? The best value in the world actually. I have just come back from training agents in Cape Town last week, helping them to defend their (almost indefensible) 7% commission! And the USA is 6%. Nothing to do with property values and everything to do with taking a pride in who you are and your ability to help people move – enjoyably. Cheap is never attractive unless you are selling a commodity. Now, if ever, is the time to decommoditise estate agency and be the attractive, persuasive, agent of character who is reassuringly expensive. Have a great day.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Revealed: the losers and winners on the high street for Google searches

first_imgResearch by a leading digital marketing agency has revealed the high street estate agency winners and losers in the battle to corner the market for Google searches.The report is from MediaVision, which works for several big names in the industry including Rightmove, Douglas & Gordon, Bidwells, Lambert Smith Hampton and Kay & Co.“As a digital agency, we often get asked about key metrics to measure the effectiveness of a client’s broader marketing strategy, and we feel that brand demand is the best metric available,” says its CEO Louis Venter (below).“Put simply, brand demand is the volume of people that Google your brand on a monthly basis.”His company’s report shows that Savills remains the most searched property estate agent in the UK at 74,000 searches followed by Knight Frank, Foxtons, Hamptons, haart, Winkworth, KFH, Carter Jonas and Century 21.But some well-known names have also waned significantly in popularity online including John D Wood (21% down on 2018), Strutt & Parker (-21%), Marsh & Parsons (-12%), Currell (-21%), MyLondonHome (-38%), Harrods Estates (-24%), Haus Properties (-24%), Hotblack Desiato (-49%) and Goldschmidt Howland (-24%).Small and medium-size estate agents who don’t appear on the list shouldn’t worry unduly; the large corporate players and their huge budgets play a considerable role in driving Google searches.“Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by Brexit, we’re still seeing demand for property brands drop, but not at the same pace as 2018,” says Venter.“This hints towards resilience in the market. We are also seeing pockets of key winners as we did last year, with online brands and portals doing particularly well comparatively.”Read more about Google.Download the MediaVision Report for free.Lambert Smith Hampton a Kay and co John D Wood Google Marsh & Parsons mediavision Strutt & Parker Rightmove Bidwells Douglas & Gordon November 6, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
