Some of the effects from the dismay on the part of conservatives include the following: * Some communicants and members of St. Bartholomew's Church in Nashville, St. Barnabas' Church in Tullahoma (Tullahoma, Tennessee), and All Saints' Church in Smyrna (Smyrna, Tennessee) (the latter a recent new church start) left their respective congregations in order to form continuing Anglican churches. St. Bartholomew's had been noted as one of the first Southern parishes that embraced the charismatic movement in the 1970s, under then-rector Charles H. Murphy, Jr.; the legacy left behind was a conservative evangelicalism that was for years quite distinctive among the area's Episcopal congregations. Despite the defection, St. Bartholomew's remains strongly conservative in theology, however, while the other two have moved more toward a moderate-to-liberal stance. * Most of the membership of two congregations, Winchester (Winchester, Tennessee)'s Trinity Church and Murfreesboro (Murfreesboro, Tennessee)'s Holy Cross Church, left, including their rectors, to, again, establish continuing Anglican congregations. The remaining communicants are in the process of rebuilding their churches under new clerical leadership who are, unlike their predecessors, loyal to the national Episcopal Church. The Winchester church eventually joined the Southeast Tennessee Episcopal Ministry (STEM) group of small mission churches near Sewanee in order to provide regular clerical leadership. image Image:WFFH logo.png city '''WFFH''': Smyrna, Tennessee '''WFFI''': Kingston Springs, Tennessee area Nashville, Tennessee '''WFFH''' (94.1 FM (FM broadcasting)) and '''WFFI''' (93.7 FM) are radio stations simulcasting a Contemporary Christian format as "FM 94 The Fish", the "fish (Ichthys)" referring to the traditional Christian (Christianity) symbol.

Tantura

Napoleon's officer Lambert, who had been sent to investigate the port, reported that it had a population of about 2,000, who seemed sympathetic to the French. After the failure of his campaign, his troops retreated to Dor, where he hoped to evacuate by sea, but his navy failed to appear. To free up horses for carrying the wounded, he ordered heavy ordnance dumped in the bay. Artillery pieces, muskets and ammunition have been found in underwater surveys around Dor. The British traveler James Silk Buckingham, who visited in 1816, described al-Tantura as a small village with a small port and a ''khan'' (caravanserai). Buckingham, James Silk (1821):''Travels in Palestine'' p. 121–123. Quoted in Khalidi (1992), pp. 193, 194 Mary Rogers, sister of the British vice-consul in Haifa, reported that in 1855 there were 30–40 houses in the village, with cattle and goats as the chief source of income.

and the need to resettle thousands of people. Rock salt is mined intensively at a salt mine in Kłodawa (this mine alone accounts for about 20% of domestic production). Throughout the province there are significant deposits of aggregates, gypsum, ceramic materials, and lacustrine chalk. In Kościan the largest and most modern, a natural gas production site is in operation. It supplies raw material for Kościańska Zieme, and Zielona Gora CHP. It is estimated that at the rate local gas reserves are being exploited, the reserves in Kościan will be enough for about 20 years of operation, thus practically allowing for local independence against the effects of gas crises. Climate Wielkopolska is influenced by oceanic air masses that affect the mildness of the climate. The farther east one travels the more distinctly continental the climate becomes. The area is situated in the Silesian Greater Poland agro-climatic region where the average annual temperature is about 8.2 °C, and in the north drops to around 7.6 °C. It is slightly warmer in the south and west where the average temperature is usually about 8.5 °C. The number of days with snow can reach up to 57 days in and around the Kalisz district. The growing season is one of the longest in Poland. On the province's southern plains this season constitutes around 228 days, while north of Gniezno and Szamotuły this gradually declines to 216 days. Precipitation ranges from 500 to 550 mm. Despite this the region is still faced with a deficit in rainfall, particularly in the eastern part of the province (around Słupcy, Kazimierz Biskupi, Kleczew) where sometimes experience only 450 mm of rainfall per year, this threatens steppization of the region. Throughout the province there is typically a prevailing westerly wind.

To the south runs the international route from Gdańsk via Poznań and Leszno to Prague and then to the south of Europe. There is also a major highway being built in the province, the A2 motorway (A2 autostrada (Poland)), which when completed will run from the western border of Poland with Germany, through Poznań to Warsaw and then onwards via Belarus to Moscow. The main railway hubs located in Greater Poland are Poznań, Piła and Ostrów Wielkopolski. PKP Intercity operate a number of trains a day between Warsaw and Berlin which provide a fast connection for the two cities also to Poznań. This route was the first in Poland, adapted for use by the European high-speed transportation system. In the near future the government expects to construct a high-speed rail line in the shape of a Y connecting Kalisz and Poznań from Łódź, Warsaw and Wrocław. Poznań is the port of arrival for most international travellers as it is plays host to Ławica International Airport (Poznań-Ławica Airport) which has recently seen the second highest passenger growth rate in the country.
