In another edition of our ongoing Book Club series, we discuss the bafflingly prescient and hugely unknown E.M. Forster proto-science fiction and dystopian story The Machine Stops. This was written in 1909 yet managed to very accurately predict technologies like the internet, including its ability to be used as a device that can allow people to never leave the house: video conferencing, delivering food, clothes, music, literature and even artificial oxygen all to individuals living in isolation in underground chambers, yet connected to thousands and mediated by "the Machine." A harrowing and all-too-familiar vision of a world saturated with social atomization and mechanized order as well the dire consequences they may bring.Support: patreon.com/heatdeathpodGeneral RecommendationsJD's Recommendation: Dune (2021)JNM's Recommendation: The Machine StopsFurther Reading, Viewing, ListeningPublic domain copy of the story: The Machine StopsAudiobook of The Machine Stops"How E.M.

In this episode, Sharon tells Kaben Kramer about the best letter-writer of all time, Abigail Adams. Born and raised in the great state of Massachusetts, Abigail wrote over 1,100 letters to her husband, President John Adams, throughout his political career. Her words packed a punch, and her letters frequently persuaded her husband to advocate for women's rights and condemn slavery on the floors of our new nation's Congress. Abigail was a trusted wife, loving mother, charitable educator, smallpox inculcator, ammunition maker, and at times, she was referred to as “Mrs. President.” Join Sharon and Kaben as they discuss the incredible life and legacy of Abigail Adams.

We are gob-smacked to have her on our podcast. Her daily blog, “Letters from An American” is required reading for many of us. I wake up and read her first thing. Others, can't get to sleep without taking in her incredible and seemingly effortless gift of putting the news of the day--no matter how distressing – into a un-stuffy, almost chatty, historical context. We know she's been up til the wee hours writing it –with footnotes! Her podcast, Now & Then, is a joy. And her Facebook live lectures…don't even get me started. The woman never sleeps. But––who knew she was a foodie? She cut her teeth making whoopie pies with her sisters in Maine. She's an expert bread baker, the keeper of the family recipes…a lover of community cookbooks working on her own. In our conversation, she uses her uncanny insights to put food into a political, historical, and cultural context. Who knew that Popeye and Olive Oyl had an interesting origin story?Photo Courtesy of Heather Cox Richardson.Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network.

I love St. Theophan. The reason I say this is because one can see so clearly how deep his love is for the young Anastasia. He is a true spiritual father. At this point in their correspondence, Anastasia has come to a deeper understanding of the spiritual life and Theophan has shared with her the great riches of the spiritual tradition. Yet, his love for her makes him at times speak the truth to her with a kind of sternness. Not anger, but rather with a clarity about the weightiness of the matter they are discussing and its importance for her spiritual life and future. Tonight we began Letter 67 on “Diligent Confession”. Theophan rejoices with Anastasia over the fruits of her pilgrimage to the monastery of Saint Sergius. However, he rebukes her for something that she told him about the nature of her confession. Despite having made the pilgrimage with its physical and emotional rigors and having embraced the practice of unceasing prayer throughout the journey, when the moment came for her to experience the full fruit of the spiritual practice she held back. She did not confess all of her sins; she did not open her mind and her heart fully to God in order that she might also reap the benefits and all the grace that the sacrament offers. Theophan tells her that the essence of the mystery of repentance consists in the resolution of the sin one has confessed. Her preparation should have illuminated her heart fully enough that she would leave no sin unconfessed because she would see no sin is “small”. Every sin has the capacity of growing and taking hold of one's life and leading one away from God. She must avoid the craftiness of the worldly mind that seeks to rationalize certain behaviors and to minimize their effects. --- Text of chat during the group: 00:12:29 Eric Williams: I would very much be interested in a desert father society or similar. The Catholic men's groups I've seen are either mostly social or have an Evangelical vibe. 00:24:09 Art: I'm in! 00:31:00 Joseph Muir: What page number? 00:31:09 Carol Nypaver: 265 00:31:19 Joseph Muir: Spacibo 00:38:34 Rachel: The quote from St. Climacus, about striking the final blow and still having hope...which chapter is that from? 00:49:41 Rachel: lol yep 00:50:32 Rachel: @ the quirkiness...yet there is hope 00:54:57 Erick Chastain: the horologion and the pre-Vatican II breviary pray the entirety of that psalm, but it was deemed too difficult for moderns to include in the new breviary 00:55:19 Erick Chastain: (as far as I know, the horologion does, but I'm not sure) 00:56:08 Erick Chastain: that is, I think it does, since the byzantine psalters all include it in ther prayer rule 01:02:29 Joseph Muir: Speaking to Sue's last point, one very real issue is how little time the average parish assigns each week for confession. In my hometown, most of the Roman Catholic churches had an hour each week; in the various places where I've lived, I've never seen a Byzantine church that has actual confession times, always seeking to leave it up to penitents to ask the priest. While a penitent must obviously take initiative, I assure you that there are far fewer Byzantine Catholics who make a regular confession than would if there were set times throughout any given week (on the latter point, the nearly total absence of daily vespers or matins at these Byzantine churches is also a shame) 01:04:03 Eric Williams: Confession has become juridical - we go to seek removal of criminal guilt at the price of some symbolic atonement in penance. It should be medicinal, though, such that we seek healing from skilled physicians, who work methodically, patiently, and compassionately. Too few priests were taught or bother to use good bedside manners. 01:05:37 Joseph Muir: This is also why there is value in having a regular confessor, particularly one who knows one well enough so as to call them out on their BS

See pictures and read more on materiallyspeaking.comWith abstract calligraphic lines, Julia Vance creates sculptural forms in white Italian Statuario marble. She tells us how she created a modern altar, font and pulpit for a new church in Hønefoss, Norway, which replaced the previous church which had burnt down.In this episode, Julia describes a piece she was finishing called Passage to Knowledge. Carved in black granite, this monumental sculpture is like a huge letter Q, signifying a question. It comprises a circle with a tail, and is a portal you can pass through.Julia believes the value of questions is far more important than students being filled up with answers. Passage to Knowledge was unveiled in the schoolyard of the newly opened Flesberg school, Norway, in September 2019. Julia created the piece to honour curiosity and encourage children to engage and play with it.Another work which plays with calligraphic forms is HOLD #2. This sculpture is inspired by the sweeping lines and curves of the letters H, L and D. The piece invites you to curl up inside the cavity and become the missing letter O. Before going on display in Holland Park, London, HOLD #2 was shown in front of the Norwegian Parliament.The sculpture group WE-ME #5 was inspired by the idea that the word ‘me' can easily be turned upside-down to form a ‘we', much the same way an individual ‘me' can join a group and become part of a ‘we'. First displayed in 2014 in front of Oslo Central station, the piece has wheels fastened to the side allowing members of the public to rotate the words.Since 2005 Julia has divided her time between Norway and Italy, creating her letter- and word-inspired sculptures. Having spent most of the pandemic in Norway, she is looking forward to returning to her studio in Pietrasanta to work on new commissions.juliavance.noinstagram.com/juliavance1Royal Society of Sculptors

The Shulhan Aruch (Siman 247) discusses the delivery of mail by non-Jews on Shabbat. Is it permissible to drop a letter in a mailbox on Erev Shabbat, which will be delivered on Shabbat? The Shulhan Aruch establishes a clear rule: It is permitted, as long as the non-Jew is paid a fixed price and he was not instructed to deliver it specifically on Shabbat. If these conditions are met, it is considered that the non-Jew is working for himself, and it was his choice to deliver the letter on Shabbat.This principle can be applied to modern-day mail. The postage stamp is the fixed payment. When one puts the letter in a mailbox before Shabbat, he is not telling the non-Jew when to deliver it. Even though there is a sign on the mailbox that says it will be emptied on Shabbat, it is not a problem, since the Jew did not ask the non- Jew to deliver it on Shabbat. It does not make a difference to the Jew whether the mail carrier comes on Shabbat or Mosei Shabbat.Moreover, there are additional factors to be lenient. First, the non-Jew is coming not only for the letter of the Jew; he is coming because of the other letters in the mailbox as well. Also, he is not directly in the employ of the Jew; he has a salaried position working for the government. Therefore, it is clearly permissible to drop a letter in the mailbox before Shabbat. This is the opinion of the Shevut Yaakov in his responsa (2:42) and it is accepted by Hacham Ovadia and Hacham Ben Sion.This leniency applies also to leaving letters in the personal mailboxes of private homes, and not just public mailboxes. There is no issue of Marit Ayin, i.e. that an outside observer would think that the Jew gave the letter to the mail carrier on Shabbat. Everybody knows that postal workers walk onto the porch every single day of the week. However, it is prohibited to personally hand the mail carrier the letter on Shabbat. The Shulhan Aruch clearly rules (252:2) that a Jew cannot engage a non-Jew to do work on Shabbat, even for a fixed fee. It would also be a problem to raise the indicator flag of the mailbox on Friday. Actively calling the mail carrier's attention to the letter is tantamount to asking him to pick up the letter on Shabbat. It would also be a problem to raise the flag on Shabbat in advance of placing letters after Shabbat. This would constitute Hachana-preparing for after Shabbat.SUMMARYIt is permitted to place a letter in a mailbox that will be emptied on Shabbat.It is prohibited to hand a letter to a non-Jewish mail carrier on Shabbat.

We discuss the largely forgotten story of one of the largest riots in New York City history. In September 1992, some 10,000 off duty NYPs descended upon City Hall in a racially charged and drunken protest/riot, with their fury directed at Mayor David Dinkens, NYC's first and so far only Black mayor. We take a look at the details of the bizarre spectacle of off duty and on duty cops meeting at a bit of an "awkward" crossroads during the riot, the historical context of the event, and the instrumental role of the vile figure of Rudolph "9/11" "Don't-Call-Italians-Fascist" Giuliani.

Episode SummaryI love a good book. Reading is one of my favorite things to do. Fun Fact about me: I always have a book on me at all times. The airport, the grocery store, the doctor's office. I am never without a book. The truth is that reading these books have been therapy for me. There are books on this list that I've read multiple times and the pages are marked and tabbed. They were just that impactful for me. I hope they are for you also.These books are all written by women and the majority of them speak to women and women of color. I hope you enjoy them.Professional Troublemaker by Luvvie Ajayi Jones (https://amz.run/4ysm)Career Rehab by Kanika Tolver (https://amz.run/4ysl)Letters to My Sisters in Engineering by Brittany Wilkins (https://amz.run/4ysk)You're More Than a Diversity Hire Women in STEM by Angelique Adams, PhD.

Join us this week for a new edition, In The Studio with Michael Card. We'll start of the hour with more from Michael's teaching series on the details in Jesus life. This time we'll explore the “I am” statements in John's Gospel and how these reveal the way Jesus thinks. In the second half we welcome back Dr. Tom Schreiner for a careful look at the Letters of Peter. He'll help us discover the lessons we need to understand from the suffering of the 1st century church. Throughout the hour there's music from Michael that will connect the teaching and conversation from this session, In The Studio with Michael Card.

Have you ever wanted to logout of Instagram for a day, maybe the weekend, but held off because you were afraid you were going to miss out on something? Are there clothes hanging in your closet or beauty products in your bathroom, or decor in your house that you bought (maybe influenced by an Instagram ad or someone sharing about it on Facebook) that you thought was going to solve all your problems . . . only for you to still feel empty and restless? Do you find that your creativity, clarity of mission, and just your ability to focus on something has tanked - and that has correlated to the time you spend in front of a screen? In today's episode of the Letters to Women Podcast, I'm sitting down with Jessamyn Anderson Frain. For the first three months of 2021, Jessamyn didn't buy anything that wasn't essential.

Jesus's letter to the church in Philadelphia makes it clear that He was pleased with them. He has nothing to critique about the church. Instead, He acknowledges their struggles, and promises to overcome them.
Patricia Maginnis, who was 93 when she died on August 30, may have been the first person to publicly call for abortion to be completely decriminalized in America. Despite her insistence on direct action on abortion-rights at a time when many were uncomfortable even saying the word "abortion," Maginnis is not a bold letter name of the movement. That may be because she didn't seek the limelight and she cared more for action then self-presentation.Guests include Lili Loofborow, who profiled Maginnis for Slate; Professor Leslie J. Regan, who wrote the book When Abortion Was a Crime; and the artist Andrea Bowers whose video piece, Letters to An Army of Three recreated the messages people would send Maginnis when they were desperate to access abortion services. Special thanks to the Schlesinger Library, where the 1975 oral history of Pat Maginnis is housed.
