Today I talked to Meredith Hall about her new novel Beneficence (Godine, 2020). A beautiful family is torn apart by a shocking loss, and three of its members blame themselves. It's the middle of the twentieth century, their farm in Maine needs tending, and the seasons move swiftly with specific chores and tasks. The cows need calving, the chickens need feeding, the laundry needs washing, the rugs need airing, the food needs preparing. But each member of the family is numb from their huge loss, and they go their separate ways, telling small bits of the story as their lives unfold. Their dreams and hopes change, and some decisions have harsh consequences, but slowly, through the changing seasons, they struggle to make their way back to the family they once loved. Meredith Hall taught in the MFA program at the University of New Hampshire for many years. In her late fifties, she wrote an essay that won the Pushcart Prize, and on the basis of that encouragement, she was awarded the Gift of Freedom Award, which provided two years of dedicated writing. Her memoir Without a Map was named a best book of the year by Kirkus and BookSense and was both a NYT bestseller and an Elle magazine Reader's Pick of the Year. She was a recipient of the 2004 Gift of Freedom Award from A Room of Her Own Foundation and her work has appeared in Five Points, The Gettysburg Review, The Kenyon Review, The Southern Review, The New York Times, and many other publications. Hall writes while listening to Gregorian chant, and when she is not writing or reading, she is outdoors, finding beautiful wild places. She spends her time in Northern California and Maine, so beauty is available all around her, vital sustenance. She loves and needs the arts and spends each winter in the Bay Area gorging on performances of contemporary dance, modern and classical music, and drama. She wanders museums and galleries a lot. Her family and friends are at the center, always. G.P. Gottlieb is the author of the Whipped and Sipped Mystery Series and a prolific baker of healthful breads and pastries.

In this episode, I am joined by Broadcaster & Journalist - John Wilson It's amazing to hear so many passionate stories of his love of The Jam (thanks Aunt Liz!) - it's an out-pouring of emotions, memories and envy inducing tales from a master story-teller! As one of the regular presenters of Front Row - the Radio 4 arts programme, John specialised in music-related interviews for the programme with the likes of Ray Davies, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Elton John and Kate Bush - whilst also interviewing Paul Weller on many occasions on the show. In 2007, he worked with Paul to create the book Suburban 100 - which saw Paul share his reflections on his lyrics, offering candid insights to his writing process and the inspiration behind some of pop music's best loved songs. In 2012 - Paul Weller guested on his Radio 4 Music Programme Mastertapes - discussing a career-defining album in front of a live audience (Paul selected The Gift) which also featured a previous podcast guest (Teenage Waitress - Daniel J Ash) In recent years, Paul has been a guest on John's 'These Three Songs' Podcast and John has returned the favour by interviewing him for the Making of True Meanings Documentary.

Monday, 18 October 2021 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. Acts 1:23 You can also read this commentary, with music, courtesy of our friends at "Discern the Bible" on YouTube or at Rumble (Click Here to listen). Peter has proposed the selection of another apostle to replace Judas. This is in accord with the Scriptures he cited, and therefore it is an appropriate step to take. Before proceeding to the verse, it should be noted that many take this decision by Peter and the others as an aberration. If a twelfth is now selected, then it – presumably – makes the selection of Paul problematic. How can he be chosen as an apostle and yet there be twelve apostles? The reasoning is that there were twelve sons of Israel. To maintain the pattern, there should then only be twelve apostles. The thinking is flawed. The twelve sons of Israel as recorded in Genesis are at first twelve – Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph and Benjamin. However, in Genesis 48, the following is recorded – “Now it came to pass after these things that Joseph was told, ‘Indeed your father is sick'; and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 And Jacob was told, ‘Look, your son Joseph is coming to you'; and Israel strengthened himself and sat up on the bed. 3 Then Jacob said to Joseph: ‘God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me, 4 and said to me, “Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.” 5 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.” Genesis 48:1-5 Thus, the sons of Israel are fourteen – Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph and Benjamin, Manasseh, and Ephraim. Throughout the rest of Scripture, even in the New Testament, various listings of the sons of Israel are given based on the number twelve. At times, one name or another is given in replacement of another name, but the list is given as twelve. Of the apostles, Luke lists twelve – “Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; 15 Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; 16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.” Luke 6:14-16 With the selection of another apostle now in Acts 1, and with the designation of another apostle – Paul – beginning in Acts 9, the number is fourteen – Simon (Peter), Andrew, James, John; Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon called the Zealot, Judas the son of James, Judas Iscariot, Matthias, and Paul. With this pattern set forth and understood, there is no reason to assume that the selection of Matthias (as will occur in verse 1:26) is inappropriate. Judas, being dead, does not discount that he was a named apostle. Nor does the adoption of Manasseh and Ephraim mean that these two sons are not “sons of Israel.” The pattern is set forth for us to learn from. Having said that, the verse set before us begins with, “And they proposed two.” Of those who had been with Jesus “from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up” (Acts 1:22), two qualified men have been identified. The first is “Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus.” The name “Joseph” essentially means, “He shall add,” coming from the Hebrew verb yasaph, “to add.” However, it is also connected to the word asaph, “to take away.” Therefore, the name is actually a double entendre. The name Barsabas (Barsabbas) is probably a patronymic. The word bar is Aramaic, meaning “son.” Thus, he is “Son of Sabas.” The Greek Sabas is derived from a one of various Hebrew words, depending on which transliteration is accepted. The name could mean Son of the Host, Son of the Imbiber, Son of Pleasure, Son of an Oath, or something similar. If the name is not a patronymic, the term “son of” may be relating to his character. This is common in the Bible. A person is known as a “Son of XXX” because his character exemplifies that quality. Thus, the term “Son of Sabas” designates either his father, or his personal character. Finally, Justus is a name of Latin origin meaning “Just.” It was not uncommon for people to have both a Hebrew name and a Latin or Greek name at this time. It was also common to be called “Son of XXX,” as well. Hence, he was known by any of these names. The second nominee is “Matthias.” This is believed to be a shortened form of the name Mattathias. If so, it is a transliteration from the Hebrew name Mattithyah (or Mattithyahu). The Hebrew word mattah signifies a gift or reward. The Hebrew Yah is an abbreviation for Yehovah. Thus, the name means “Gift of Yah (Yehovah).” Life application: Peter quoted Scripture to demonstrate that God's plans were not upset by the betrayal of Jesus by Judas, but that this was in accord with what God knew would occur. He again cited Scripture to demonstrate that another person should replace him. Peter's thinking was not in error. It was in accord with what was set forth in the word. The selection of the two men was in accord with what was just and right concerning the knowledge of Jesus' ministry. In other words, the events in Acts 1 concerning the replacement of Judah are not an error as many claim. Instead, they are a part of what occurred, they are documented by Luke to show that this was what was decided, and in the conduct of this selection – and the later selection by Paul – a set pattern is brought forth that matches what occurred already in the Old Testament in relation to the sons of Israel. As such, EW Bullinger defines the number fourteen as – “...being a multiple of seven, partakes of its significance; and, being double that number, implies a double measure of spiritual perfection. The number two with which it is combined (2x7) may, however, bring its own significance into its meaning, as in Matthew 1, where the genealogy of Jesus Christ is divided up and given in sets of 14 (2x7) generations, two being the number associated with incarnation.” Be sure to carefully read the word, think on what is occurring as you do, and then continue to meditate on the word as you conduct your other affairs. The word is active and alive, and it will reward those who diligently ponder its truths, patterns, structure, and so on. Glorious heavenly Father, what a treasure Your word is. Thank You for the richness it contains. We have one life to live before we stand before You. Help us not to squander it on that which is temporary and futile, but to direct our hearts, minds, thoughts, and actions to a study and contemplation of Your precious word. To Your glory! Amen!

Michelle and David discuss the necessary elements of what makes a team successful in a partnership. Strangely, the same elements that apply in business, apply across the board and can be translated into inter-personal relationships as well. Given that most podcasts fail - specifically, 80% in the first year and most podcasters quit before they even reach 30 episodes, David and Michelle thought it would be appropriate to beat the collective chest of Red Kite Movement's Gift of the Day as true testimony to not only shared vision, but execution and commitment in the face of constant obstacles. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/red-kite-movement/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/red-kite-movement/support
EP 60- SOAP Proverbs 15-Humility before honor A season of SOAP is back again! The SOAP episodes have been the most downloaded episodes and I am bringing them back! Each Friday I will release a SOAP episode! SOAP is an acronym for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer. You can journal along as God reveals what He has to say to you each time you SOAP. In this episode I get the honor of SOAP'ing Proverbs 15 with Michelle Davies aka "Gift". She discusses how much we take in by our physical senses and its not really what brings wisdom. The Holy Spirit reveals His wisdom through our spirit. She mentions how she allows the Holy Spirit to correct her when she is thinking negative thoughts about a situation. She confesses she tends to jump to conclusions, but then allows the Holy Spirit to rebuke her and she receives humblness and an accurate perspective. She says you can't have honor without humility. In order to have honor you have had to sacrifice. She observes how the world wants to change how we see things, but we gain true wisdom from the Holy Spirit. She asks is there such a thing such as righteous disrespect? I discuss how the bible tells us that it's not what goes in the mouth that defiles us, but what come out of it. I incorrectly reference Matthew 18, but it is Matthew 15:16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. 17 “Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. 20 These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.” This SOAP series is in partnership with Morning Breath, which is an East Coast Christian Center drive time devotional in which a Pastor and guest SOAP through scripture ON AIR both on radio and a podcast Mon-Thur.

If you said this prayer- you are justified immediately and made right with God.Living a life to glorify God is a life- long journey! But know that right now you are saved and set free from the bondage of sin (including past, present and future sin). Nothing can separate you from the love of God and living in eternity with Him. Did you receive Christ today? If so, Congratulations! It's the best decision you have ever made!

Gift catalogues can be a great way to meaningfully engage your donors in the work you do—and they can raise a lot of money. But how do you create one? How do you optimize it? How do you develop the offers and the price points? How do you choose which gifts to feature more heavily than others? How do you put it all together? There's an art and a science to it all, and today we get into it all with Brian Tucker from True Sense. Brian led the development of the World Vision gift catalogue in 2006, and he saw it grow over 300% in a five-year period. Since then he's helped lots of other organizations create effective and successful multichannel gift catalogue programs. On today's podcast, Brian gets into all the tactics and the strategies that go into creating a winning catalogue. Today we'll cover:[03:01] - Why Nonprofits should consider having a gift catalogue [07:27] - Print Catalogues and Year End Giving [10:08] - How large the commitment to a catalogue is [14:40] - Why you shouldn't treat your gift catalogues like a direct mail campaign [21:39] - How to conduct a detailed product analysis [29:54] - Bundling gifts and add-ons [35:38] - Optimizing your digital catalogue [43:15] - Fulfillment of a thank you card [45:44] - Brian's encouragement for nonprofit leaders, marketers, and fundraisers Please consider subscribing to, rating, or sharing the Build Good Fundraising Podcast on your preferred platform.

God gave His best gift first. "He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" That's Romans 8:32, one of the verses we'll look at today. We like to give the lesser gifts first, and build up to the Big One.

Liz and Anika talk about Kes, a character we loved more than Voyager's writers did. Kes did not even get an entry in her own right in the Voyager character bible We swore we weren't going to use Kes's episode to talk about Neelix, but seriously: why is Neelix? In fact, why are all Kes's stories about men? Anika's home for wayward narratives How Soji is Kes 2.0 Everyone is wrong about Elogium except Liz (okay, and Anika) We had to cut a long discussion about how great Tuvok is because THIS IS NOT AN EPISODE ABOUT THE MEN IN KES'S LIFE Any situation which can be compared with the end of Breaking Dawn is probably bad Fury hits REALLY differently now we know more about Lien's departure COSTUMING, including our '90s aesthetics and a terrible quote from costumer Robert Blackman Episodes to watch: Elogium (an episode about Neelix deciding if he's ready for Kes to have a baby) Cold Fire (an episode about a guy recruiting Kes for his cult) Warlord (a man possesses Kes's body) Darkling (the Doctor is very concerned about Kes falling in love) Before and After (it's actually about Kes! Just don't think too much about Ocampa and human co-existence…) The Gift (an episode about Seven of Nine where Kes decides it's time to leave Voyager) Fury (but don't feel like you actually have to watch it to listen to this episode, Liz certainly didn't bother)

Dear Doug & Jay,Most of my friends have specified “no gifts” on their invitations for their kids' birthdays and I always abide by it because: (1) Why say it if you don't mean it? and (2) If we throw a party for my baby, I will say “no gifts” and 100% mean it.Yet every time I go to a birthday party where this is specified, I'm one of the only people who hasn't brought a gift for the kid and I feel terrible.What are we supposed to do?

SHOW NOTES We are FINALLY continuing the conversation with Steve and Belden Lane today! Belden and Steve discuss why lament is absolutely necessary for each of us, and how lament is the way out of our national meltdown, our constant state of living on the edge in a frazzled world. It is stunning, sobering, and powerfully hope filled - don't miss this conversation! SPECIAL GUEST BELDEN C. LANE Belden C. Lane is a Presbyterian theologian who teaches on a Jesuit faculty at Saint Louis University. His interests include the relationship between geography and faith, wilderness backpacking in the Ozarks, the magic of storytelling, desert spirituality, exposing students to urban poverty through the Catholic Worker community, and the poetry of Rumi. He also works with men, helping to lead initiation rites through Richard Rohr's program for Men as Learners and Elders in Albuquerque. He lives with his wife Patricia, a spiritual director and retired school teacher, in Saint Louis. Drawn to sacred places around the world, his travels have involved camping in Egypt, Ireland and the Virgin Islands; hiking in Greece, Hawaii, and Australia; and study in England, Israel and Mexico. For six years I served in the pastorate, from a village parish in western New York State to the historic First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia. Some time ago he found himself delightfully introduced as a Presbyterian minister teaching at a Roman Catholic university telling Jewish stories at the Vedanta Society.

Andy Crouch is Partner for Theology and Culture at Praxis and the author of Strong and Weak. In this episode, Andy Crouch discusses the roles of both strength and weakness--authority and vulnerability--in our leadership.So often, we assume the greatest leaders are the ones who exhibit great authority. Or maybe we believe the greatest leaders let go of all their authority and lead only from a place of vulnerability.But that's a false dichotomy. Leaders that bring true flourishing lead with both authority and vulnerability.THIS EPISODE'S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:Andy Crouch is Partner for Theology and Culture at Praxis and the author of numerous books, including Strong and Weak.The most formative books Andy Crouch has read are A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson and Technology and the Character of Contemporary Life by Albert Borgman.After writing Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power, Andy Crouch placed the themes of that book on a 2x2 matrix, which unlocked all kinds of new insight, which led him to write Strong and Weak.Andy Crouch explains what a 2x2 matrix is. In the case of Strong and Weak, the 2x2 matrix consists of authority and vulnerability.See graphic belowWhen humans experience both authority and vulnerability, this is flourishing.When there is no authority and no vulnerability, this can be called safety or withdrawal.Vulnerability without authority is suffering.Authority without vulnerability is control or exploiting.Andy Crouch explains the need for both authority and vulnerability by exploring Genesis 1 and 2.There is something that is unlocked in the world when a person with authority willingly empties themselves of authority and enters into suffering. It has a capacity to repair and restore the world.Finding the right meaningful risk will unlock flourishing for you and the people you're entrusted with.In order to move toward vulnerability, letting go of authority, we need friends who are outside our own system.The prayer of a healthy leader: God, show me my meaningful action today and show me my meaningful risk.To find out more about Andy Crouch and his work, visit www.praxislabs.org.RELEVANT RESOURCES AND LINKS:Books mentioned:Strong and Weak, by Andy CrouchA Long Obedience in the Same Direction, by Eugene PetersonTechnology and the Character of Contemporary Life, by Albert BorgmanPlaying God: The Gift of Redeeming Power, by Andy CrouchPraxis Website:Praxislabs.org

Steve took us back to primary school, where he discovered computers in form of a BBC Micro. We brushed over his early days, and how he slowly made his way toward computers with the help of certifications. Steve explained how software development was a side activity for a very long time. We then discussed interviewing and the important help of his wife to help him to take a leap of faith (twice). We talked about getting started giving talks and being involved with communities and how this influenced his future career. And we finally explored how he ended up at Elastic.Here are the links from the show:https://www.twitter.com/stevejgordonhttps://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-nethttps://www.stevejgordon.co.ukhttps://app.pluralsight.com/profile/author/steve-gordonhttps://www.youtube.com/codewithstevehttp://www.htbox.orgCreditsCover Campfire Rounds by Blue Dot Sessions is licensed CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.Your host is Timothée (Tim) Bourguignon, more about him at timbourguignon.fr.Gift the podcast a rating on one of the major platforms https://devjourney.info/subscribeSupport the podcast, support us on Patreon: https://bit.ly/devjpatreonSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/timbourguignon)

One of my all-time favorite cookbooks has always been The Gift of Southern Cooking, co-written by the iconic and legendary Edna Lewis -- who blazed the trail for black chefs everywhere with her cooking and her writing -- and my patient today, her friend and colleague, James Beard award-winning chef, Scott Peacock. It was such a thrill to get to talk to Chef Peacock about his time with Ms. Lewis (as he calls her), to hear how she impacted his life, helped him embrace his Southern roots, and taught him about the importance of quiet in the kitchen. We go deep about Scott's original ambivalence about the South, how it was tied to his grandmother's poverty, his sense of shame, and how all of that changed after that first meeting with Ms. Lewis over coffee at Dean & Deluca in New York.
