This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews CS Manegold, author of Ten Hills Farm: The Forgotten History of Slavery in the North.
Ten Hills Farm tells the powerful saga of five generations of slave owners in colonial New England. Settled in 1630 by John Winthrop--who would later become governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony--Ten Hills Farm was a six-hundred-acre estate just north of Boston. Winthrop, famous for envisioning his 'city on the hill' and lauded as a paragon of justice, owned slaves on that ground and passed the first law in North America condoning slavery.
In this mesmerizing narrative, C. S. Manegold exposes how the fates of the land and the families that lived on it were bound to America's most tragic and tainted legacy. Challenging received ideas about America and the Atlantic world, Ten Hills Farm digs deep to bring the story of slavery in the North full circle--from concealment to recovery. Manegold follows the compelling tale from the early seventeenth to the early twenty-first century, from New England, through the South, to the sprawling slave plantations of the Caribbean.
C. S. Manegold is the author of In Glory's Shadow: The Citadel, Shannon Faulkner, and a Changing America (Knopf). As a reporter with the New York Times, Newsweek, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, she received numerous national awards and was part of the New York Times team honored with a Pulitzer Prize in 1994.

At some point, you are going to face something that you never asked for and never wanted. What do you do? How do you cope?
Linda Graham, MFT, renowned psychotherapist and meditation teacher, says the answer lies in our ability to bounce back, also known as “resilience.” Our capacities for resilience are innate in the brain, hard-wired in by evolution and with focused practice; you can learn to strengthen your resilience muscle.
Linda’s newest book, Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being offers a blue print on how to bounce back from adversity by changing your brain.
Really, change your brain? Yes, you can, and it’s the traumas and tragedies of life that have the greatest capacity to create positive change.
In this interview, Linda reveals:
The 6 C’s of coping What it means to do one scary thing a day How to rewire unhelpful patterns through exercises that can increase our resilience capacity, and How to rebound from adversity back to our center Linda’s work draws upon the latest discoveries of neuroscience to teach us how to live effectively and peacefully in our daily lives.

Please join me Tuesday October 8th, at 11am CS time. As we talk about The Holy Spirit and how Jesus commanded His disciples to wait for the promise of The Father. He gives us power to be witnesses. Pentecost was the fulfillment of what the prophet Joel said. It was just the beginning of the outpouring of The Spirit. after Pentecost. When The Spirit would live in us After Jesus arose into heaven in the glory cloud, commanding them to wait for the Fathers promise. I am going to give exampes of how The Holy Spirit operated like that in the Old Testament and then the New Testament. He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me; (Acts 1:4)
for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:5)
but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses........ (Acts 1:8)
but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel: (Acts 2:16)
`AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,' God says, `THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS; (Acts 2:17)
EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT And they shall prophesy.
Please join me October 1st at 11 am CS time as we discuss how God testifies , that His Word is true.
God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will. (Hebrews 2:4)
That it is not supposed to be just talk- but His Word has power.
for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. (1 Thessalonians 1:5)
The Lord confirms His Word - He demonstrates- so your faith will be on Him and His power - not on mans wisdom.
and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, (1 Corinthians 2:4)
so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. (1 Corinthians 2:5)
When we go, and do the Great CommisionThe Lord will work with us, and confirm His word by the signs that follow.] Jesus Himself will testify through The Power Of The Spirit the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation. ] (Mark 16:20)

The battle against nonliteracy has focused on teaching everyone to read and write text. But new technologies that facilitate more holistic learning styles, engaging all of the learner’s senses, may open the locked stores of global knowledge for all. Instead of reading, ’riting, and ’rithmetic, we’ll move to critical thinking, creative thinking, “compspeak,” and calculators.From the moment that a child was born, her brain, central nervous system, and all of her senses shifted into high gear to access and to try to understand the incredible new informational environment that surrounded her. She had to make sense of new sights, sounds, tastes, smells, tactile experiences, and even new body positions.Jessica approached her new world with all of her senses operating together at peak performance as she tried to make sense of it all. Her new reality was dynamic, constantly changing from millisecond to millisecond, and she immediately and instinctively began to interact with the new information that poured through her senses.Jessica’s cognitive ability to access new information interactively, and to use all of her senses at once to optimize her perception of that ever-changing information. She was innately, biogenetically hardwired to access information in this way.For Jessica’s first four or five years, her all-sensory, interactive cognitive skills blossomed with amazing rapidity. Because each learning experience was all-sensory, her perception of reality was truly holistic. She also became proficient in using the variety of information technologies (ITs) that continued to be introduced into her environment: She was also feeling very good about he
