UPDATED WITH OBITUARY, FUNERAL SERVICE: Suspect in murders of Goshen's Michael Sharp, two others arrested - Goshen News

Monday, May 01, 2017

Kananga in the DRC’s Kasaï-Central province.Michael Sharp was raised in the home of a pastor and historian, and grew up in Mennonite centers like Harleysville, Pennsylvania, Scottdale, Pennsylvania, Middlebury, Indiana and Goshen Indiana — locations where his father pastored and then served as Director of the Archives of the Mennonite Church-Goshen. His mother was a physician assistant. M. J. graduated from Bethany Christian Schools in Goshen, Indiana in 2001. He went on to Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) where in 2005 he earned a BA in history, with a minor in German. He later earned a MA in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution at Philipps-Universität Marburg in Germany.After graduating from EMU, Sharp worked for three years with the Military Counseling Network in Germany, a project of the Deutsches Mennonitisches Friedenskomitee to serve U.S. soldiers based in Europe who sought discharge from military service for conscientious objection or other reasons. From August 2006 to early fall 2008 he was coordinator of the project.From 2012 to 2015, Michael Sharp served as Eastern Congo Coordinator for Mennonite Central Committee. This included working with other agencies, such as the Peace and Reconciliation program of the Congolese Protestant Council of Churches, a program that sent people into the forest to persuade rebels to come home. It is reported that Michael’s team persuaded 1,600 rebel soldiers to return to their homes.In 2015 M. J. began contract employment with the United Nations, serving as an Armed Groups Expert in the United Nations Group of Experts on the DRC. This group was appointed by the U.N.’s Security Council to investigate new violence in Kasaï-Central Province that began after government forces killed Kamwina Nsapu, a tribal chief and militia leader, who had resisted DRC President Jospeh Kabila. The UN Group of Experts on Congo, established in 2004, has consisted of six experts appointed by the UN secretary-general to monitor the Security Council’s sanctions regime for Congo and to propose individuals and entities to be added to the sanctions list. The experts collect and analyze information about armed group activities, their networks, arms trafficking, and those responsible for serious human rights violations.In March Sharp and his colleagues planned to document the militia’s alleged use of child soldiers, to investigate massacres of unarmed civilians by government forces, and to seek dialogue with stakeholders such as militia leaders, religious figures and civil society groups to promote peaceful solutions. M. J. was the coordinator of this group.At the time of his death, Michael Sharp’s North American base was in Albuquerque, New Mexico as part of a semi-intentional community of persons who valued peace and cherished community known as the Plex. He moved there in October 2016.An acquaintance from National Public Radio recalled that “Michael Sharp believed in the power of persuasion. The 34-year-old ... with a penchant for plaid shirts would walk, unarmed, deep into rebel-held territory in the Democratic Republic of Congo, sit in the shade of banana trees with rebels and exchange stories....

Pa. woman's overdose obituary draws White House response -

Monday, May 01, 2017

An obituary for a 20-year-old Pennsylvania woman who died following a "long brave battle with addiction" has prompted a response from White House officials.  Casey Marie Schwartzmier, 20, of Ross Township near Pittsburgh, passed away in January following a suspected heroin overdose.Her obituary, published 4 days later, was remarkably candid about the former cheerleader's struggles with substance abuse."Casey was a beautiful, intelligent child of the suburbs who fell into [heroin's] grip," the notice read. "Casey believed that hiding her cause of death would help no one, but if her story could help just one addict push even harder for another day of sobriety, encourage an active user to choose recovery or shine a light on this horrible epidemic, then it would be worth coming out of the shadows."  Ex-coach dies of suspected heroin overdose at Pa. rehabThe candor of that obituary, which can be read in full here, prompted a flood of supportive social media posts, messages and news media coverage.It also captured the at

Baltimore mourns Cardinal Keeler, former archbishop - The Tidings

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Do the work of an evangelist.’”Cardinal Keeler was born in San Antonio, Texas March 4, 1931. After growing up and attending Catholic schools in Pennsylvania, he joined the seminary and then attended the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He was ordained there as a priest of the Diocese of Harrisburg in 1955, at the age of 24. During the Second Vatican Council, Fr. Keeler served as secretary to Bishop George R. Leech of Harrisburg. He was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Harrisburg in 1979, and in 1983 became bishop of the same diocese. In 1989 he was named the 14th Archbishop of Baltimore, the oldest diocese in the United States.Archbishop Keeler was also elected as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in 1992, where he helped coordinate 1993’s World Youth Day celebrations in Denver, Colorado. Archbishop Keeler was appointed a cardinal by St. John Paul II in 1994. He retired in 2007, at the age of 76. Cardinal Keeler was very involved in both interreligious and ecumenical activities, as well as the pro-life movement.At the USCCB, he served as the moderator for Catholic-Jewish relations as well as the Chair for the Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs between 1984 and 1987. He served on the International Catholic Orthodox Commission for Theological Dialogue, the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and the Congregation for the Oriental Churches over the years. He also served twice as the Chair of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities.In Baltimore, Cardinal Keeler worked hard to secure funding for at-risk children and youth to attend Catholic schools in the archdiocese. Today, the fund that bears his name has awarded over 16,500 scholarships and has raised more than $70 million dollars in funding. Other efforts of Cardinal Keeler include his hosting of both Sts. John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta during their visits to Baltimore, and his efforts to restore the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.Sean Caine, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, told CNA that “the cardinal served the Archdiocese of Baltimore for 18 years,” a feat which made him third longest -serving bishop in the historic see. “He did so with great distinction, great clarity of vision and fidelity to the Church.” Caine continued to explain the cardinal’s meaning to the city and the deep significance of his leadership over those nearly two decades.“He was probably best known for his work in interfaith and ecumenical relations, which probably drew him close to Pope St. John Paul II, and that relationship bore particular fruit for the
