It is unclear how quickly the Supreme Court will decide Haggerty and provide a decisive interpretation of section 15402, though a decision in 2022 seems unlikely. For now, anyone modifying a trust subject to California law would be well advised to follow very closely any procedure specified in the trust instrument. Otherwise, if the Supreme Court closes the chasm by reversing Haggerty, lawyers and settlors modifying trusts will not be able to fall back on the statutory method.
By Msgr. Richard Oswald With the fall of the Roman Empire, Rome, the once mighty capitol faded, and the city of Constantinople ascended to become a great center of political and economic power. Eventually this political and economic divide would lead to a theological schism.
At the time of the great schism there were communities within the Orthodox patriarchates who chose to remain in full communion with Rome. They are known as the Eastern Catholic churches. They have generally maintained their original traditions and practices. There is a distinct code of canon law that governs the Eastern Catholic churches. Within the Roman curia, there is a congregation for the Eastern Catholic churches, which serves as a liaison between Rome and the churches. Examples of Eastern Catholic churches are the Coptic Catholic, the Melkite Catholic, the Ukrainian Catholic and the Greek Catholic churches.
Schism is a term used to describe a break in a religious body, usually because of ideological disagreements between members. In most traditions, schism is regarded as a very bad thing, as it can lead to the division of the community and theumentation of tension and rivalry between the members. Schism can also create a rift in the history of the religion, as different groups may regard each other as heretics.
When the Tenth Doctor's TARDIS brought him to ancient Gallifrey, billions of years before his time, he and Cindy Wu witnessed young Gallifreyans being forced into the schism by a group of Time Sentinels. (COMIC: Old Girl) During one initiation in the Dark Times, a group of students were thrown into the Schism. Their physical forms were splintered by unprotected travel through the Time Vortex.

Now it's time for a regular segment Words You'll Hear. That's where we try to understand stories in the news by parsing some of the words associated with them. Today's word is schism. We expect to hear that word this week as Pope Francis, head of the Roman Catholic Church, and Patriarch Bartholomew, head of the Eastern Orthodox Church, traveled to Greece to meet over the plight of refugees. But that meeting raises the question of why there's an Eastern and Western church to begin with. That divide is called the great schism. To help us understand this, we invited Monsignor Paul McPartlan to stop by our studios. He's a professor of systematic theology and ecumenism at the Catholic University of America.
Most visitors opt for the popular two-part Classic Tour that includes a breathtaking hike through the upper chasm followed by a scenic float (via raft) through the lower chasm on the legendary waters of the Ausable River. During the hot days of summer you can also cool yourself off with a relaxing Tube Ride down the river where you will float amongst the towering chasm walls and past the same amazing sights as the rafts.
Great day! We recently spent the day in the chasm during our camping trip. We had a great time! Trails are well maintained and we enjoyed both rafting and tubing. The tubes were great for fun on your own and the rafting provided a guide who gave facts and history. Would recommend if you are looking for a fun day that you can make as active or nonactive as you want.
The failure of international Communism to prevent the schism appears to be rooted in certain generic peculiarities of Communism itself. First of all, the importance attached by Communists to ideology means that there must always be a "general line" guiding the tactics and the strategy of the movement. Setting the line was an easy matter when Stalin was alive. Today, it involves dealings among many parties and régimes, while the preoccupation of Communists with their alleged monoply on the only "true" and "scientific" understanding of reality results in the quick transformation of differences into matters of principle, with mutual accusations of "dogmatism" or "revisionism" inevitably following. In addition, commitment to the ideology resulted in a general delusion that, by definition, there could be no conflict among Communist states. Thus there was no predisposition to develop the tradition of agreeing to disagree or the institutions for collective decision-making.
In the present phase of the schism, it is likely that there will be a further strengthening of ties between the Soviet Union and its allies on the one hand, and China and its supporters on the other. One sees evidence of that in the growing importance of the Council for Mutual Economic Aid (CEMA) and in the much more frequent consultations between Soviet and East European leaders. Similarly, the Chinese will probably try to rally more closely the revolutionary parties and eliminate from them the vestiges of Soviet influence. The long-run trend, however, points toward even further diversification: revolutionary parties, as both the Jugoslavs and the Chinese taught the Soviets earlier, are extremely difficult to control and it is unlikely that the Chinese hegemony can be effectively maintained, especially in view of the relatively limited Chinese resources; similarly, the ruling Communist parties in Eastern Europe are likely to press gradually for a greater margin of autonomy, and the Soviet wooing of Jugoslavia is bound to intensify these pressures. The Italian party has already asserted its autonomy. Thus both the orthodox and revisionist wings are likely to see further erosion of central power.
Offensive operations against the China Mainland would not be opportune. They might precipitate Soviet aid and diminish the schism. But by the same token, it would also be unwise to rush into a political and diplomatic, or economic, courtship of China. For the time being, the continued isolation and repulsion of China is the best policy calculated to keep internal dissension within the Communist world and to prolong the fundamental economic weakness of China.
There are those few moments in history that can rightfully be described as turning points. The Communist schism is one of them. International Communism has lost its momentum and the rhythm of Communist policy has been disrupted. Gloating over it is not enough, and to pursue policies which were developed during the time of a unified Communist threat could be self-defeating. Our task is to perceive the implications of the schism and to readjust accordingly both our perspectives and policies.
I believe this group of traditionalist clerics has opened a chasm in the church like nothing in our lifetime. Worse, my impression is they will not be satisfied by anything less than total capitulation.
I am beginning to believe that reform of the church can only go forward if those who seek reform under Francis demand it and decide to let the chips fall where they may. If the bottom line is that traditionalists will thwart every effort to make even minor changes, perhaps schism is inevitable. The alternative may be to live in a church that believes the Council of Trent must forever be normative. I for one find that possibility unacceptable.
Appearing on ESPN's "First Take," Sherman weighed in on the Rodgers-Packers schism/chasm/rift (we're running out of words to describe it), saying that the Packers have "disrespected" Rodgers "for a while."
Following the Olgimsky decision, the Kin reveal to the Haruspex that a schism has occurred within the Kin. There are some who believe that the Haruspex is unfit to lead them and ask the Haruspex to solve this. The Haruspex can solve this through violence and kill the Odongh causing the schism. This will prove his strength to the Kin and they will be satisfied with the end of the schism. The schism does not have to be solved through violence, however, and can be solved peacefully at a later date.
The Haruspex leaps into the great pit and falls not to his death, but into an underground chasm. The tunnels are made of a fleshy, muscular material and a thumping beat can be heart through the walls. The Haruspex walks through the caverns and comes across a giant heart sitting in the main chamber, a spike hovering mere meters from the heart, moments away from piercing it. This is the spike of the Polyhedron, digging into the Earth, nearly destroying the heart. The Haruspex speaks to the heart, discovering that this may in fact be the Udurgh his father placed on his List. The heart only seems to repeat what he says, echoing his own thoughts endlessly.
If the Haruspex did not solve the schism in the Kin through violence he is, with his knowledge gained from the Abattoir, able to solve the issue peacefully. The apostates will now to speak to him and accept his leadership. The Odonghe who rebelled are now content with his presence, and accept his answers for the future. They believe him worthy of the place he has tried to take within the Kin. Once solved the Haruspex is then able to convince the Kin to leave the Termitary to go to Shekhen, the old Steppe village. The Kin tell him that in doing so they will now be willing to answer any questions he might have. They tell him to come to Shekhen to speak to them later. The Haruspex does just that and, in asking the Kin, discovers that it was Oyun who killed Isidor Burakh. Though the Kin have gathered around Shekhen Oyun in noticeably absent. He is instead within the Abattoir, which the Haruspex can now enter freely. The Haruspex confronts Oyun about Isidor's death and he confesses that yes, he was the murderer of Isidor Burakh. He did not kill Isidor out of hate, however, but out of love. Isidor was delirious and dying of the Plague, and he made it so that he no longer had to suffer through the illness. Oyun deeply regrets what he had to do and willingly accepts whatever judgement the Haruspex has for him. The Haruspex is able to forgive Oyun, as he believes his father would, and Oyun will continue to live. The Haruspex can condemn him, asking him to prepare to die. If this occurs, Oyun will be killed and the Haruspex will bury him. The Haruspex is also able to tell Oyun to deal with his death himself and if this is said Oyun will die at midnight. 041b061a72
