Now the zigzagging can continue

Now the zigzagging can continue

Not everyone can move an entire factory in three days. The A creative embroidery already. But that only works if everyone helps out together. From the apprentice to the bosses.

And as with the takeover of the then insolvent fahnenfabrik meinel, the current move from mannsflur to marktleugast was handled by the company itself: trucks were rented, the nine multi-head embroidery machines weighing several tons were dismantled, hauled, driven and reassembled from morning to night. Bales of fabric and embroidery machines hauled around and a whole bunch of boxes with patterns, templates and ornaments moved around.

To ensure that no time was lost, the employees and their families drove small parts themselves in their private cars.

Ziegelangerer franz schick ordained deacon

Ziegelangerer franz schick ordained deacon

"The spirit of god cannot be confined within ecclesiastical structures. Where the life of the spirit makes itself felt, it can also cause astonishment or even unrest." This was emphasized by bishop friedhelm hofmann at the ordination of deacons last saturday in wurzburg's kiliansdom. Here the ziegelangerer franz schick and three other manner were ordained as permanent deacons. They were able to "have a far greater impact on society than we priests can", said the bishop. With the laying on of hands and prayer, he ordained the four believers.

About 600 believers celebrated
The festive service was under the sentence from the first letter to the corinthians of the apostle paulus: "one spirit – many gifts". One body – many members." The ceremony was attended by the vicar general karl hillenbrand, the personnel officer monsignor dietrich seidel, the pastor albin kramer, spiritual director of the deacons, numerous priests and deacons as well as relatives, friends and acquaintances of the new deacons. A total of more than 600 faithful celebrated the consecration service with.
49-year-old franz schick works as a master gardener for the city of bamberg. He is married and the father of two daughters and a son. He did his internship in the parish community of saint kilian habfurt. The formation to become a deacon is part-time and lasts at least four years. It rests on the pillars of theology, pastoral care and spiritual accompaniment. After the consecration, there are two more years of formation, the phase of vocational formation.
In his sermon for the ordination, bishop hofmann took up the message of pope francis, who made it clear that the church must not cling to privileges and entrenched structures, but must be completely open to the call of god. By the example of jesus, we can learn to become poor and to reach out to the poor and needy. Paul's view of the various gifts of grace, which all come from the one holy spirit, is not contrary to canon law, but fills the entire life of the church. "The faithful are not simply commanders from above, who only have to act when they are called upon to do so 'from above'. Those who hold the office in the church must not have the consciousness that they had to receive suggestions 'from below' in a graciously condescending manner."
Paul had already emphasized that god's spirit is present in every christian and that everyone brings it to light in his or her own way. "There is no exception, in every spirit-baptized person there are potentials that must be awakened, developed, accepted by the church", the bishop emphasized. It would be fatal to renounce these spiritual gifts. "A bitter impoverishment of the parishes was the result.
The bishop encouraged the faithful to leave room for the holy spirit in the church and to allow for reflection, responsibility and action. The permanent diaconate is a fruit of the second vatican council that has blossomed in the wurzburg diocese. "The church has as its basic mission to pass on jesus' love, manifested to us, through the times – in our own little lives – each according to his abilities and possibilities, according to the gifts of grace given to us.

Pledge of obedience
At the beginning of the consecration the four candidates were called one by one. They promised to live their lives according to jesus christ and to serve him especially in the poor, the sick, the homeless, the needy and all the marginalized. They vowed obedience to the bishop. During the invocation of the saints, the manner lay stretched out on the ground as a sign of devotion to christ. After that, bishop hofmann silently placed his hands on them and said the consecration prayer. With the four newly ordained, there are 205 permanent deacons in the wurzburg diocese. 71 of them work full-time, 134 part-time or retired.

Clinic exchange becomes more likely

As reported, the building and land of the vitals klinik are still owned by DRV berlin-brandenburg. The current operators took over the clinic on a lease-purchase basis just over three years ago and filed for insolvency in february 2012 after the occupancy commitment on the part of DRV berlin-brandenburg had expired as agreed.
When the marbachtalklinik was taken over by dr. When the DRV moved its headquarters from georg-heim-strabe to the vitalis clinic on menzelstrabe, the advantage was that even more of the DRV’s own clinics were in the immediate vicinity and synergy effects could be exploited. In addition, the current marbachtal clinic is probably easier to market because it is not located in the special spa area and therefore permanent housing – for example, in the form of a retirement home – would be legal.
The management of the vitalis clinic is disappointed and annoyed. According to managing director richard voigt, the decision by DRV berlin-brandenburg to no longer occupy the clinic unless it could immediately arrange financing for the remaining purchase price fit the bill perfectly. Well aware that financing is impossible without an occupancy commitment, the clinic swap has already been initiated. "Even an authority like the german pension insurance company berlin-brandenburg is proceeding in a decidedly reckless manner here" so voigt.
However, the current clinic operators knew from the beginning that DRV berlin-brandenburg would withdraw after three years. This was part of the contract.

Gauck: inner unity of germany needs 40 years

Gauck: inner unity of germany needs 40 years

Federal president joachim gauck hailed the merger of the north elbian (hamburg/schleswig-holstein), mecklenburg and pomeranian churches as a new chapter in the trusting coexistence of east and west germany, but at the same time warned against illusions about the state of inner unity. "Change of mindset takes a long time," said gauck in his opening remarks after the solemn grounding service in the ratzeburg cathedral.

Two generations, about 40 years, are necessary "to pass from the status of dependence and oppression to the status of a free man". "We want to be happy that this unification has come about," said gauck, who deviated several times from his pre-distributed redemanuscript. It could be that some expect too much from the new organizational entity. "There has been a long phase that has made us different."Which need not be divisive, but one must be aware of them.

Gauck referred to the repressive measures against the churches in the GDR, an experience that did not exist in the west. Churches in east and west had to do very different things, said gauck, who used to be pastor in rostock. At the same time, the head of state, who in many passages explicitly presented himself as a christian and not as the president of germany, emphasized his trust in god. Christians had to take responsibility to be a blessing in this world – "that’s why we want to pray and that’s why we want to act".

Brose bamberg in search of “defensive identity””

Brose bamberg in search of 'defensive identity''

For the second time in three weeks, the gieben 46ers and brose bamberg meet each other. After the 72:66 victory in the cup competition at the hessen, the bambergers are aiming for their first home win in this bundesliga season on saturday (6 p.M.).

In only their second game at home in the brose arena this season, coach roel moors’ team will also be looking for the right response to the largely poor performance in nymburk last wednesday. “The coach has given us a good plan, but we haven”t implemented it. You sometimes have lows like that in the season, unfortunately. Of course we want to avoid that, but that”s part of the game, and we just have to react better to that next time.”, said wing player tre mclean after the 71:91 defeat in the champions league opener at brosebamberg.Tv. “It is good that we play again on saturday already. You don”t forget this game, but it is no longer so present in your mind and you get rid of the taste of defeat.”

Especially defensively, the bambergers have to improve a lot. Against weibenfels and nymburk they each conceded over 90 points. Therefore, the game against the weak-started gifted team will not be a self-runner, especially since the brose team struggled for a long time in the cup victory over the hessians. The decisive factor was bamberg"s clear rebounding superiority (42:24) and the brilliant performance of assem marei, who had a double-double with 17 points and ten rebounds reached. On the gieben side, the player stephen brown had a successful debut with 20 points in the jersey of the 46ers, for whom it is this season exclusively about the class preservation. Just how difficult the fight against relegation can be was recently demonstrated by the clear 75:99 home defeat against the promoted hamburg towers, which the gieben fans acknowledged with whistles. So the guests also have something to make up on saturday night.

Trosdorf regnitz center ready in september

Trosdorf regnitz center ready in september

Huge piles of different shades of paint line what will soon become the new access road to what already bears a pioneering name: main-regnitz-center. The whole thing reminds a little bit of the phoenix and the ashes thing. Because using the recyclable parts of the demolished complex of the former shopping center will grow an imposing new center. And above all: in september, the main-regnitz-center in trosdorf should be completed, so that the customers can come here. With the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony, the mayor, construction company and developer sent the project into the final stage of development.

Mayor johann pfister (BI) and real estate manager kai nootny (garigal immobilien), who is overseeing the 10-million-euro project for the luxembourg-based property company cheyne, hope that the new center will build on the success of the first legendary shopping center in the bamberg region, the EZB (einkaufszentrum beyer), which was built in 1968. The specifications for the utilization concept were adhered to exactly, pfister is pleased to say, with a view to the intercommunal working group. Nootny had particular praise for the cooperation with the district administration office "normally, everything is much more difficult", he commented on the approval process. Nootny says that tenants already exist for 90 percent of the approximately 11,000 square meters of retail space. Anchor tenants are mucke (5000 square meters) and kaufland (4000 square meters). The two above-mentioned companies are supplementing their existing facilities in the bamberg area at the trosdorf site. Among other tenants, nootny mentioned frisor, flower store, takko (textiles). Negotiations are underway with denn’s biomarkt. In the next few weeks, marco heinrich (fur garigal immobilien) will contact other potential tenants.

The gas station, which will be a free one, will be preserved and modernized. On the cheyne site, which covers a total of about 40,000 square meters, there will be a good 560 parking spaces, almost twice as many as before.
From november the hei mische company metzner was busy with demolition, sorting and recycling work. After all, about 60 percent of the former complex has been demolished. A good 6000 cubic meters of recycled, sorted and tested building material are now stored in rough piles, waiting to be reused in the construction work. The part of the shopping center that was built about ten years ago has been left standing, but it has been gutted.
