Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] “If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”Lilla Watson, an aboriginal elder, activist and educator, from Australia is credited with these words, spoken by her and others in the early 1970s at a time when white Australians were becoming aware of the effects of racism and colonialism on the country’s indigenous people. These words were not only meant to challenge people working toward social justice, but reflected the frustration felt by the Aborigine toward the efforts of whites who in their offers of assistance, further perpetuated colonial perceptions and attitudes.The words, used to provoke discussion in a small group session during last week’s 21st annual Global Episcopal Mission Network conference in Puerto Rico, resonated with Rachel McDaniel, a Young Adult Service Corps missionary serving her second year in Brazil.Being a missionary, she said, is about “experiencing the love of God in Christ together.”The Global Episcopal Mission Network, or GEMN, annually brings together short- and long-term missionaries to empower and educate them in their work. Increasingly, the old way of being a missionary , and of mission trips focused on projects and doing things for others, is being replaced by a model centered in mutual respect and accompaniment, and developing a deeper understanding of one another’s context.“We still have a tendency in the Episcopal Church to want to, as many people have said before, we want to try to fix things for others and we see that as something that is important for us, but while we can work alongside our partners in helping them strengthen their communities, being present I think is even more important,” said the Rev. David Copley, the Episcopal Church’s officer for mission personnel and global partnerships.Copley’s office provides support for 51 adult and young adult missionaries in 20 countries around the Anglican Communion.Since his consecration in November 2015, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has shared his vision for the Jesus Movement and its two components – evangelism and reconciliation – and what it means for Episcopalians and the Episcopal Church to be a part of that movement. In his keynote address to the more than 120 people attending the GEMN conference, he talked about mission as a way of embodying Jesus in the world.“Bishop Curry talked about evangelism a lot and I think one of the things that our missionaries are learning and sharing is very much what we talk about as an ‘incarnational theology of mission,’ that sense of Christ is present amongst all people,” said Copley. “We are definitely not going to bring Jesus and share the Good News because it’s already there. But what we are doing is if we enter into a meaningful relationship then we see the Christ in the other and they see the Christ that is in us.“I think that there is also a mutual evangelizing that is happening when we are in a meaningful relationship. And again that was something that Bishop Curry touched upon in his opening talk when he talked about that sense of if you are living in the Jesus Movement then that comes out through your very being.”Twenty young adult and adult missionaries attended the GEMN conference, where they had the opportunity to share their experience with the presiding bishop and talk about mission and the Episcopal Church. They also shared their experiences with others on a panel where they answered questions such as, “How did you discern your call for long-term mission.?”For Monica Vega, a long-term missionary who served in South Africa for 14 years and now serves in Brazil, one man’s example led her to missionary life. When Vega was in her early twenties and living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she’d cross the city by bus on the weekends to volunteer in a shantytown where a man simply referred to as “Brother Domingo” repaired shoes.“He was this tiny guy with a thick French accent working on shoe repairs … and this man was a missionary and he was living among the people there and his only work was repairing shoes and he was the center of that shantytown,” said Vega during the workshop. “He didn’t do anything in the way of preaching, from time to time he’d do a Sunday school or prayer, but he said that really wasn’t his job, and one day I said, I want to do that.”For Alan Yarborough, who served two years as a YASC missionary in Haiti and who then stayed on to work at the St. Barnabas Center for Agriculture in the country’s north, he knew upon graduation from Clemson University in South Carolina that he wanted to experience of living and working abroad. Initially, he considered applying to the Peace Corps, but upon learning about the YASC program, he decided he wanted an experience where he’d be in relationship with others in the Episcopal Church, not just an American abroad, he said.In his second year of service in Haiti, Yarborough built time into his schedule to return to South Carolina, building stronger connections between parishes in the Diocese of Upper South Carolina and in Haiti.“That’s the real mission, bringing it back,” said Heidi Schmidt, in response to what Yarborough shared during the panel.Schmidt served alongside Vega in South Africa where they helped build Isibindi, a community-based program that trains unemployed community members to provide child and youth care services that allow orphaned children to be cared for in their communities by older siblings or other family members.Schmidt and Vega worked with locals, training them to run the program and eventually turning it over to them. They now work in São Paulo alongside women street venders, providing support for them, many of whom are migrant workers and vulnerable to gender-based violence.“Heidi and Monica spent seven years working in South Africa with a phenomenal program … this model was adopted in other parts of South Africa and is continuing today even though they are not there because they helped empower and  enable the community to continue that ministry,” said Copley. “They moved to Brazil and will only stay there as long as they feel they have something to contribute.”In Vega’s words: “You arrive where no one needs you and you leave when people think they need you.”Missionaries are not bringing God to communities, God already is there and they are not there to solve problems, build infrastructure or teach in schools; they are there to be present and learn about the lives of other people in community with them.“The reality is that in most parts of the world there are teachers and nurses that are able to do the work that missionaries used to be doing 50 to 100 years ago,” said Copley. “We want to make sure we’ve transitioned away from a colonial model and now we want to make sure we move away from a paternalistic model into a model where there’s mutual learning from one another.”The new model, he said, applies to both short-term mission trips and the YASC and long-term adult missionary models; it’s something people interested in short-term mission trips can learn from the young adult and adult missionaries.“I think sometimes we can focus so much more on the task itself and very little time on getting to know and understand one another,” said Copley. “I think in our culture we feel not that it’s a waste of time, but I think we feel as if we need to have what we see in our culture as meaningful experience and contribute something physically to a partner to make the trip worthwhile. We have to do something physical otherwise we can’t justify this, I think it’s allowing ourselves the understanding that we can justify a deepening a relationship in some ways as a more meaningful way of engaging in mission.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

September USDA Stocks Report Bearish

first_img The USDA reported larger than expected inventories of corn, soybeans, and wheat in its September 1st Stocks Report, which analysts call bearish for the markets. The corn supplies came in at 2.14 billion bushels, which is 138 million more than the last estimate of old-crop carryout. USDA says feed usage was likely smaller than expected, reducing the number of bushels that made their way out of storage and off the farm. September 1st soybean inventory is estimated at 438 million bushels, 43 million bushels higher than the previous estimate.In coming up with the number, USDA says the 2017 soybean crop was 19 million bushels larger than expected, upping last year’s yield to 49.3 bushels per acre nationwide. USDA raised its all-wheat production estimate by seven million bushels to 1.88 billion. September 1st wheat stocks came in at 2.37 billion bushels, more than pre-report estimates. The higher number indicated demand likely down eight percent from last year. Part of the reason may be slower than expected exports during the marketing year.Indiana corn stocks totaled 126.1 million bushels, 5 percent below a year earlier, according to Greg Matli, State Statistician, USDA, NASS, Indiana Field Office. About 17 percent of the corn was stored on farms. The fourth quarter disappearance was 188.9 million bushels, compared with 167.3 million bushels a year earlier. Soybean stocks on September 1, 2018, were 22.0 million bushels. That was 4 percent higher than stocks a year earlier. The fourth quarter indicated disappearance was 52.9 million bushels, compared with 57.0 million bushels during the same period a year ago. Farm stocks of soybeans were 3.6 million bushels. Wheat stocks on September 1, 2018, were 41.0 million bushels, 6 percent below a year ago. Ninety-seven percent of all wheat stocks were in commercial storage. First quarter indicated disappearance was 4.1 million bushels, approximately 9 percent of supply.Old crop corn stocks in all positions on September 1, 2018, totaled 2.14 billion bushels, down 7 percent from September 1, 2017. Of the total stocks, 620 million billion bushels were stored on farms, down 21 percent from a year earlier. Off-farm stocks, 1.52 billion bushels, were up 1 percent from a year ago. The June – August 2018 indicated disappearance was 3.16 billion bushels, compared with 2.94 billion bushels during the same period last year. Old crop soybeans stored in all positions on September 1, 2018, totaled 438 million bushels, up 45 percent from September 1, 2017. Soybean stocks stored on farms were estimated at 101 million bushels, up 15 percent from a year ago. Off-farm stocks, 337 million bushels, were up 58 percent from last September. Indicated disappearance for the June – August 2018 quarter totaled 781 million bushels, up 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. All wheat stored in all positions on September 1, 2018, totaled 2.38 billion bushels, up 5 percent from a year ago. On-farm stocks were estimated at 631 million bushels, up 28 percent from last September. Off-farm stocks, 1.75 billion bushels, were down 1 percent from a year ago. The June – August 2018 indicated disappearance was 605 million bushels, down 8 percent from the same period a year earlier.Sources: NAFB News Service & USDA NASS Great Lakes Region SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 30, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News September USDA Stocks Report Bearish Facebook Twitter September USDA Stocks Report Bearish Previous articleChina May Be Getting U.S. Soybeans Through the BackdoorNext articleCommentary: The Sector of Agriculture That is Booming Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Food, Agriculture Climate Alliance Recommends USDA Use Pilot Projects to Build…

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Food, Agriculture Climate Alliance Recommends USDA Use Pilot Projects to Build Toward… By American Farm Bureau Federation – May 4, 2021 The Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance (FACA), now more than 70 members strong, has worked over the past three months to develop specific recommendations for how the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) should approach a potential carbon bank. FACA began sharing those recommendations with USDA and Congress.A voluntary, USDA-led carbon bank is one policy mechanism being considered to help reduce barriers that producers and landowners face to participating in voluntary carbon markets and adopting climate-smart practices.FACA recommends that USDA lay the foundation for a potential carbon bank by first developing a series of pilot projects that would focus on the following four areas:Scaling climate solutions: Pilot projects should help increase adoption of climate-smart practices that reduce, directly capture or sequester greenhouse gas emissions, and/or increase climate resilience. Pilots should deploy “critical climate infrastructure” to increase the capacity of farmers, ranchers and forest owners to adapt to climate change, while ensuring food and economic security.Removing barriers to adoption: Pilot projects should encourage the widespread adoption of climate-smart practices and critical climate infrastructure by removing barriers and making it easier for producers and landowners to adopt these practices.Improving carbon accounting standards: USDA should develop consistent and credible criteria to account for the carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas reduction benefits of climate-smart agriculture and forestry projects and practices.Ensuring equitable opportunities: Pilot projects must be developed with and provide equitable opportunities for minority, socially disadvantaged and small-scale producers.Information gained from the pilots will serve two critical purposes. First, it will help USDA build a durable foundation for a carbon bank that gains long-term bipartisan congressional support. Second, it will help USDA build confidence in how to verify the climate benefits delivered by specific practices and management approaches.This approach will lay essential building blocks for a voluntary carbon bank that creates opportunities for all producers and landowners to participate in rapidly developing voluntary private markets and leverages private investment in agricultural and forestry climate solutions. As USDA develops a carbon bank, it must protect all existing funding for farm bill conservation and insurance programs, and it must ensure that a USDA-led carbon bank doesn’t undermine voluntary private markets.FACA included a portion of these recommendations in its response to USDA’s recent request for information about the agency’s climate strategy. The alliance is also actively working on additional in-depth tax credit policy recommendations to help ensure farmers, ranchers and forest owners have the tools and resources they need to contribute to climate solutions and benefit from doing so.Read FACA’s full carbon bank recommendations and see a full list of member organizations at agclimatealliance.com.
