He prophesied in the time of Joachim, just before the Jewish people were taken into captivity in Babylon. He himself escaped captivity, and after Jerusalem was destroyed, returned to his homeland. Once he was taking some food to his harvesters when an Angel transported him to Babylon to feed the Prophet Daniel in the lions' den, then bore him back to Judea (this is told in the full version of the book of Daniel, ch. 6 LXX). The third chapter of his prophecy is used as the Fourth Ode of the Matins Canon(the Ode is usually sung in full only in monasteries during Lent, but the eirmos of the Fourth Ode, sung in many parishes, usually refers to the Prophet). His holy relics were found through a revelation in Palestine during the reign of Theodosius the Great, and a chapel built there. His name means "Father of the Resurrection."

Are you dreading the language learning process? Putting off getting started, or maybe going back to it after a break? I'm blaming the Inner Complainer. This is the third episode in a trio called For the Very Reluctant Learners, where, in our weeklong Ode to Inner Complainer, we are listening to her most common complaints about learning a language, taking them very seriously, and then learning our language anyway. Today's complaint is a favourite whenever we're starting something new: “It's going to be a nightmare”. Join your host, Emily Richardson, every weekday for a short and snappy dose of language courage to get you unstuck, whether you love languages or whether you really don't, but need to learn one anyway. Emily is the tiny and colourful creator of Tea with Me, a platform to help multi-passionate and unconventional language learners splash language into every part of their lives. She is also the author of the How to Be Me series of language journals to help you to tell the stories that really matter in your new language.

Episode No. 573 features artists Matthew Ronay and Jade Doskow. The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas is presenting "Matthew Ronay: The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode" through January 15, 2023. The exhibition features a nearly 24-foot-long sculpture that functions as both an introduction to Ronay's exploration of surrealism, abstraction, representation and art's history, and also as a summary of the last decade of his work. The exhibition was curated by Leigh Arnold and is accompanied by a catalogue published by the Nasher and Gregory R. Miller & Co. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for about $55. Ronay's work has been featured in solo shows at the Blaffer Art Gallery and at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. He has been included in group shows at the Dallas Museum of Art, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Williams College Museum of Art, and more. The John Hartell Gallery at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning is presenting "A New Wilderness: Freshkills." The exhibition features photographs by Freshkills photographer-in-residence Jade Doskow and a series of soundscapes by Heather Campanelli. The work shows the evolution of Staten Island's Freshkills from a landfill -- the world's largest household garbage dump -- into a 2,200-acre city park. The exhibition is on view through November 4. Doskow's Freshkills work debuted in The New York Times. Black Dog London published a monograph of Doskow's "Lost Utopias" work in 2016. Instagram: Matthew Ronay, Jade Doskow, Tyler Green.

This week, Turkey T and Rico do their best to navigate the extremely murky waters of The Butterfield Bermuda Championship. With only 5 of the world's Top 100 players set to go, the guys deploy a "wide net" strategy with low-cost plays on no less than 27 golfers, and probably tick off a full 3/4th's of the field across their Best Bets, DFS Cards and Picks to Win. Rory McIlroy is your new World #1 (for the 9th time). The guys break down his win down the stretch over Rahm et all, and discuss several topics, including whether Rory currently has the highest non-Tiger approval rating of the 21st century. Rico also makes a bold prediction about how long Rory will hang on to the top spot, exactly when he'll lose it, and who he will lose it to. It's not a great event but it's a great show, topped by Rico's "Ode to the Butterfield Bermuda" at the end of the show. Let's Goooooooooo!!!!!!!!!
I have seen friends walk away from relationships, jobs, and promising careers when all they really needed was some time and space to gather their thoughts, slow their heart rate, and rediscover their joy. I'm not saying you should always, “hang on one more day at a time and wait for things to get better.” I am saying you need to recognize the changing seasons in your life. Bobbie Gentry knew when it was time to stop, turn the page, and begin a new chapter. Bobbie knocked the Beatles off the #1 spot on the music charts with “Ode to Billy Joe,” a song that she wrote, performed, and produced. She won Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the Grammy Awards. Eleven more of her songs made the music charts. She was a major headline act in Las Vegas and she co-hosted a successful TV series with country music superstar Glen Campbell. America watched as Bobbie Gentry provided the music for a major motion picture about her imaginary Billie Joe McAllister, then performed “Mama, a Rainbow” for her mother who was seated in the studio during the filming of a television special. The next day, Bobby quietly retired from the spotlight without fanfare, returning no phone calls, answering no letters, and granting no interviews. She had been in the spotlight for 14 years when she whispered, “Enough,” and walked away 41 years ago. What triggered it? Nothing. She simply realized that a season in her life had ended. Solomon spoke famously about the seasons of life in the third chapter of Ecclesiastes:There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. … He has made everything beautiful in its time. … I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. One can think of the seasons of life in a few different ways.Financially, we go from survival to acquisition to distribution. Relationally, we go from seeking, to finding, to celebrating. In business, we go from learner, to doer, to teacher. This is essentially the Hero's Journey, a sequence of events that is nearly impossible to escape: 1. We meet the Hero in modest circumstances. 2. He encounters the Call to Adventure. 3. He meets the Old Man in the Woods who prepares him for what lies ahead. 4. He then rises to the challenge of adventure and discovers abilities within himself he didn't know were there. In the Bible we see Moses, Joseph, Samson, David and many others, including women such as Hannah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth, and Deborah as they encounter the Hero's Journey. In literature and in the movies, we see Bilbo in The Hobbit, Frodo in The Lord of the Rings, Daniel LaRusso in The Karate Kid, Simba in The Lion King, Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Neo in The Matrix, and Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. Luke was just a goober on the backwater planet of Tatooine when he was called to adventure. Obi-Wan Kenobi was the Old Man in the Woods who prepared him for his journey. Luke was again a goober with a wrecked spaceship in a swamp on Dagobah when he encountered Yoda, his second Old Man in the Woods who would prepare him for his second adventure. Which Luke Skywalker are you?Are you...

Arthur Less is a novelist—a “minor American novelist,” to be precise. He's a man whose biggest talent seems to be taking a problem and making it five times worse. And he's the hero of Andrew Sean Greer's novel “Less,” which won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, an especially rare feat for a comic novel. Andrew Sean Greer is now out with a sequel, “Less Is Lost,” which takes Arthur on a road trip across the U.S. He talks with the staff writer Parul Sehgal. Plus, for thirty years, the poet Ellen Bass has taken the same walk almost every day, on West Cliff Drive, a road along the ocean in Santa Cruz, California. Friends and family have teased her for being stuck in her ways, so she wrote the poem “Ode to Repetition,” about taking the same walk, listening to the same songs, and doing the same daily tasks, as life marches toward its end.
