Closed captioned video available here.The following is the text of Presiding Bishop Curry’s 2016 World Refugee Day message:World Refugee DayIn the late 1930s the world found itself on the verge of what became a terrible war.  The Second World War.  Millions of refugees were fleeing from Europe and fleeing around the world seeking asylum and safe haven.In 1938 The Episcopal Church published this poster with the depiction of Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus, and it read, “In the name of these refugees,” referring to Mary, Joseph and Jesus, “Aid all refugees.”The United Nations is now asking the peoples of the Earth, of all religious stripes and types, to once again come to the aid of those who are refugees.I’m standing in front of the Isaiah Wall, based on the prophecy of the words of Isaiah, in the Second Chapter of his book, where the word says that one day, people will come to Mount Zion from all over the Earth, and they will hear God’s law, God’s way, and when people hear God’s way for life,It is then that they will beat their swords into plowshares.Their spears into pruning hooks.It is then that the nations of the Earth will learn war no more.Indeed, we must find a way to end war, but we must find a way to end the suffering of human beings who are forced from their homes.  So I encourage you to support United Nations World Refugee Day.  And do anything that you can do to bring an end to the unhappy lot for many so that they may find life as Jesus said, and have it more abundantly.God bless you, God keep you, and you keep the faith.The Most Rev. Michael B. CurryPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchAdditional information• Prayer for World Refugee DayWritten by #ShareTheJourney pilgrim Alyssa Stebbing, Outreach Ministry Director and Contemporary Music Director at Trinity Episcopal Church, The Woodlands, Texas:Gracious God, we pray for our newest neighbors, that those families who have sought refuge from the ravages of war and violence may find not only shelter and sustenance, but also a loving and supportive community in which to create a new beginning with dignity.

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Servicer Amps Up Principal Reduction Outreach  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The FHFA’s Principal Reduction Modification program announced in mid-April has the potential to benefit up to 33,000 borrowers nationwide. This number represents a small share of the approximately three million underwater homeowners nationwide, which might make finding borrowers who qualify seem like looking for a needle in a haystack. That is not stopping Ditech Financial and HLP from trying to find eligible borrowers, however.Ditech Financial, a nonbank mortgage lender and servicer owned by Walter Investment Management, and HLP, a non-profit created in 2009 to help families achieve and sustain homeownership, on Tuesday announced an agreement to implement a borrower outreach effort to identify and assist borrowers who are eligible for the FHFA’s Principal Reduction Modification program.“We are committed to rolling out FHFA’s Principal Reduction Modification Program to reach and provide personal assistance to eligible homeowners whose loans we service, in an effort to help them avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes,” said David Schneider, President of Ditech. “In keeping with our goal to become a lifelong partner in homeownership, we want to help families and individuals to take advantage of this program when that is the right option for them. HLP’s platform will be an integral part of our effort to reach and assist those who are eligible for the loan forgiveness program.”The combined outreach effort of Ditech and HLP involves using HLP’s collaborative communication platform to integrate HUD-approved housing counselors with Ditech’s mortgage servicing operations. The integration between HLP’s platform and Ditech’s servicing operations will help HUD’s counselors more easily identify eligible borrowers.In order to be eligible for the Principal Reduction Modification program, homeowners must meet three requirements:They must be severely delinquent as of March 1, 2016They must currently be severely delinquent on monthly mortgage paymentsThey must have an LTV ratio of at least 115 percent (at least 15 percent underwater).Mortgage servicers must solicit eligible borrowers for the program no later than October 15, 2016.“In the past it was operationally prohibitive for residential mortgage servicers to effectively and securely utilize the advocacy world in loss mitigation,” said Cam Melchiorre, CEO of HLP. “HLP’s primary feature has conclusively overcome this process-burden through its centralized, neutral communication hub and its open architecture. This framework enables secure collaboration and rapid deployment of foreclosure relief programs among major stakeholders in the residential mortgage finance industry in fulfillment of HLP’s mission as a social enterprise to assist consumers to obtain and retain homeownership.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Ditech Financial FHFA HLP Principal Reduction Modification 2016-05-17 Brian Honea Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

first_img Comments are closed. HR professionals must put forward a strong business case highlighting thebenefits of a racially diverse workforce and share their belief in this withtheir senior executives. The warning came as a report on race policy published tomorrow shows that onlya third of large organisations have a clear business case for their diversityat work. Race for Opportunity, a national business-led network of firms working onrace and diversity, which includes Boots, British Airways and Legal &General, surveyed 93 of its members in its annual benchmarking exercise. AndreaCallender, national director of Race for Opportunity, said, “Race issuesare owned by HR and we are not going to make progress and engage the wholebusiness until this changes. Internal communication needs to be improved sothat a business case, which can be profits – or Best Value targets for localgovernment – can be developed. Until this happens it will be looked on as afeelgood HR thing.” Callender said eight out of 10 companies have a board-level race equalitychampion and a steering group to monitor progress against the action plan. Sheargued that this is vital to improve internal communication. “HR needs towin the argument that diversity is a strategic advantage. To do this it mustwork closely with the race champion and steering group to promote the issueacross the company.” One member of the network, Lloyds TSB, increased the number of ethnicminority staff in its workforce from 15 per cent to 40 per cent followinginternal research. As a result, sales of products and services rose by 15-20per cent, it claimed. Gill Dawson, equal opportunities manager at the Halifax, agrees. “Jointownership of diversity issues between personnel and business managers helpsdeliver change a lot quicker. Change cannot happen without clear objectives anda clear picture of where the company is.” The research shows that 80 per cent of those surveyed provide equalopportunities training but Callender wants to see companies improve themonitoring of training so that they can prove it is a benefit to the company. www.raceforopportunity.org.ukBy Paul Nelson HR urged to champion racial causeOn 12 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
