AUDIO BOOK READING chp 4 BREAKING THE CHAINS, WM.L.KATZ
Jenny Smith Fletcher was the daughter of W. H. Smith, founder of Nicodemus. She was the first postmistress and schoolteacher in Nicodemus, Kansas. She was also one of the original charter members of the A.M.E. Church.
Formerly enslaved African Americans left Kentucky in organized colonies to experience freedom in the "promised land" of Kansas. Nicodemus represents the involvement of African Americans in the westward expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. It is the oldest and only remaining Black settlement west of the Mississippi River.

AUDIO BOOK READING - BREAKING THE CHAINS, Week 4 Chapter 4 Resistance
Although slave revolts constituted the most dramatic form of slave resistance, they were by no means the only method of reprisal. Arson proved to be an exceptionally effective and consequently frequent form of retaliation. In 1795, slave-set fires in Charleston, South Carolina, prompted the governor to declare a day of fasting. More arson there in 1804 resulted in the destruction of six ships and hundreds of homes. The problem of arson was so widespread that, in 1820, the American Fire Insurance Company of Philadelphia stopped issuing policies in the South.
Assaults and attempts at assassination were also common. In 1740, accusations that slaves were attempting to poison New York City's water supply resulted in widespread arrests and executions. Poison attempts were so frequent they were even referred to in the lyrics of at least one slave song. Vandalism and destruction of crops were also regular occurrences.

"In the North tax money built libraries and public schools
in the South it built jails to hold slaves and paid the salaries of slave patrols.
New York state published more newspapers than the fourteen slave states combined."

“In his Breaking The Chains, which earned the Carter G. Woodson award, Katz chronicles how resistance by Africans marked the era of slavery. It shows how slaves battled for dignity and liberty in fields, cities, through education and religion, by joining maroon colonies, by staging revolts or fleeing on the Underground Railroad. Katz shows how slaves transformed the Civil War into a battle for freedom and brought about the Union victory. “This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

What Passing Bells:
Not just a compelling and dramatic story of a restless young man with the Great War as a backdrop, but also a balanced and relatable view of a war that transcends generations. When readers first meet Dai Bowen, he is an innocent young man, unaffected by the outside world, but when peer pres- sure and economics drive him to join the army he soon discovers from the horrors of war just how brutal the world can be. Moss also draws on the newly discovered research on Adolf Hitler in Thomas Weber’s book Hitler’s First War to piece together a fictionalized but realistic view of the future dictator. What Passing Bells skillfully weaves in the young Hitler’s perspective of the conflict and the world at large, providing readers insight into his uneasy relationship with his fellow soldiers in the List Regiment. ! The ideal read for lovers of historical fiction, history buffs and war-story aficionados, What Passing Bells is an unforgettable novel that brings the reader directly into the trenches.

I Will Be Most Glad To Help You:
Preaching and teaching engagements are considered without respect to the size of the church.
A total commitment is made to every service, “with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men” (Eph. 6:7).
No guarantees of any kind are requested, but a pastor-promoted love offering is much appreciated. Knowing that The Lord has always taken care of us, and trusting that He always will, I'm convinced that God's people, acting in obedience, will be responsible and considerate of our physical needs.
Ours is a Bible-based, pastor-oriented, Christ-centered ministry of faith.
In the "There's always money for Tulo in the banana stand edition," Jeffrey and Greg are contractually obligated to talk about the Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors, since they clearly aren't going away. We point out that the Mets prospects have their flaws too, and uh, probably aren't turning into 5-win players before discussing potential Carlos Gonzalez and Bartolo Colon deals as well. Then we take your e-mails. We'll ponder how excited you should be about Dilson Herrera (reasonably!), what the ideal Sand Alderson hitter looks like, and whether Noah Syndergaard will see any major league time this year. Jeffrey is also called out to defend his ambivalence towards the Alderson regime. Finally, we wrap things up with soccer talk.

Thorughout my life I have heard and read all sorts of things from letters, to books, to Facebook blurps about God and Christians. I have often wondered, what are these people talking about? Have they actually met Christians like that? And what of these warped ideas about God and what he expects of us? Almost everyone has an answer for that and almost everyone's answer ignores what the Bible actually says. As Jesus said of the Pharisees people are trying to tie up a whole bunch of rules of "how TRUE Christians" are supposed to act and put them into bundles of burdens that are too great for anyone to carry. So people "pretend" to be good, or they act "churchy" on Sundays but are then jerks the other six days of the week. So what does really want. Lets forget all of the noise and vacuous opinions that everyone seems to have and dive right into the heart of the matter. I think you may be pleasantly surprised...
