Photo: The Episcopal Church[Episcopal News Service] As parishes across The Episcopal Church suspend in-person worship in a precautionary effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sunday, March 15 is shaping up to be a historic day, with many – if not most – churches switching to online services. With only a few days’ notice, churches are preparing for a radical, unprecedented shift in the way they gather as a community, and there’s no certainty about how long it will last – whether congregations will be back in church in time for Easter or virtual services will become “the new normal” for a while.Episcopal News Service’s complete coronavirus coverage can be found here.The Episcopal Church’s online resource page for coronavirus response is here.Churches large and small are rapidly figuring out what a virtual service looks like and how it can be broadcast over the internet, many for the first time. In Washington, D.C., Washington National Cathedral has suspended in-person worship for the next two Sundays, the longest preplanned closure in its history (not counting a closure of several weeks after the 2011 earthquake that seriously damaged it). The 11 a.m. (Eastern time) Eucharist on March 15 will be livestreamed here and feature a sermon from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, though he won’t be at the cathedral either; the sermon will be recorded from his home in North Carolina.While writing the sermon, titled “Is there any message in this mess?” Curry pondered the Gospel reading for March 15: a passage from John 4 in which a Samaritan woman asks Jesus whether it is holier to worship God on a mountain or in a temple, and he replies, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”“Those ancient words speak to us who have to worship online or at a distance,” Curry said in a statement sent to Episcopal News Service. “On the mountain top or in the church building isn’t important. In spirit and in truth is what matters. So on livestreams or in a church building, all that matters is to worship God in spirit and truth.”Other major churches, like Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California, and Trinity Church Wall Street in New York are only holding online services for the immediate future, although some – including the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York and St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas – were still planning to hold in-person services as well, as of the afternoon of March 13.But most parishes don’t have the resources of those large churches, and many have no experience with livestreaming, so the past few days have been a crash course in virtual worship for leaders from across the church. The Episcopal Church has included a list of digital worship resources on its COVID-19 page, including livestreaming tutorials, apps and websites for daily prayer and fellowship, and online versions of the Book of Common Prayer and the Daily Office.Some dioceses have put together their own guides for online worship, like “Offering Online Worship: A Simple Guide” from the Diocese of Chicago, a webinar from the Diocese of Oregon, and a video tutorial from the Diocese of San Diego on how to livestream a service using just a smartphone, a Facebook account and a tripod.One issue that has come up is hymn licensing. Typically, hymns that are under copyright require a license to be used in a livestreamed service. Some licensing companies are relaxing their restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. One License, which covers dozens of hymn publishers, is offering churches a one-month streaming license for free. Alternately, churches can use any public domain hymn without licensing; a list with scores and lyrics is available here.Beyond broadcasting Sunday services, church leaders are using the internet to keep clergy and congregants connected in other ways. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering “Digital Ministry Open Office Hours” through its eFormation Learning Community, focusing on “how best to serve our communities of faith in times of crisis and concern.” Forward Movement has offered a list of resources for prayer and worship at home, including a Daily Office podcast and its ChurchNext video courses.“Especially in this time, we must turn to Jesus Christ our Lord as we face fear and uncertainty,” said the Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, in releasing its list of resources. “Though we may not be able to gather in person with others in our churches, we can pray knowing that we are never alone, as Jesus has promised to be with us, even to the end of age.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The test paper was accessible to candidates after they logged in to the platform. Thereafter, it appears that some candidates have copied the questions and circulated this on some messaging apps/emails after logging in.While this is a malpractice under the NLAT proctoring guidelines, it does not affect the integrity of the exam as questions were already available to candidates after login.Our technology platform tracks and compares every candidate answer behaviour patterns and hence, any unusual candidate answer behaviour will be identified and result in disqualification.We will continue to investigate the matter with the help of our technical partners and issue further updated if necessary. We reassure candidates and their parents that we will be transparent and ensure examination integrity at all times”.Following complaints of NLAT re-test leak, NLSIU issues statement that malpractice of candidates copying and circulating questions on social media “does not affect the integrity of the exam as questions were already available to candidates after login”@NLSIUofficial— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) September 14, 2020 The NLSIU statement came after certain students who took the re-test for National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT 2020) came forward complaining that the exam paper was leaked during the exam.A student contacted LiveLaw, sharing a copy of the re-test, allegedly being circulated all over social media, while the exam was ongoing.After many students complained of technical glitched during NLAT 2020 exam last Sunday, NLSIU decided to conduct a re-test. The same commenced at 12.30 today. “The exam started at 12:30 and on 12:52 the entire paper got leaked on various groups, we have no idea when the ‘first cheater’ got all the questions.Getting the entire question paper on 12:52 could allow a candidate to further send it to his friends/ teachers who would comfortably do the questions ahead of time, there are thousands of advantages you could have after getting the ENTIRE PAPER at 12:52,” a student told LiveLaw.NLAT 2020 is a “home-based” online examination that uses a combination of AI-based and human proctoring. The decision of the premier law institute to conduct a separate admission test after backing out of CLAT has been challenged in the Supreme Court. On September 11, the Supreme Court said that it will examine the legality of the decision, and restrained NLSIU from publishing the results of NLAT and conducting admissions on its basis, while allowing it to hold the test on September 12. The matter will be considered again by the Court on September 16.It was on September 3 that the NLSIU issued the revised admission notification stating that it will not accept CLAT scores for admissions to the academic year 2020-21 and that the same will be based on the NLAT. The NLSIU cited the repeated postponement of CLAT on account of COVID-19 as a reason for the decision behind the separate test. It said that the University is under a compulsion to complete the admission process by September end, as it follows a trimester system distinct from other National Law Universities.Next Storylast_img read more
