Raising The Peaceable Kingdom by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

Raising The Peaceable Kingdom by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

S4 E4: Raising the Peaceable Kingdom by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson Sarah shares her thoughts on: Raising the Peaceable Kingdom by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. Raising the Peaceable Kingdom by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson is a book that explores the relationship between humans and animals. Through a combination of personal anecdotes, scientific research, and philosophical musings, Masson examines the power of empathy and compassion, and how these qualities can help us create a more peaceful world. He argues that animals are not mere objects, but conscious, feeling beings that deserve our respect and compassion. Masson delves into the fascinating and often overlooked connection between humans and animals, and how we can use this connection to create a more peaceful and harmonious relationship between the two. By exploring the power of empathy and compassion, Masson encourages readers to think deeply about the importance of caring for animals and the environment. "It is only once we have made the decision to live with an animal on some sort of equal ground that we are likely to learn what that animal is capable of from a more complex point of view....Perhaps these animals will have something to teach us, too."

S4 E1: Welcome to Season 4 of The Book Dialogue Happy New Year from The Book Dialogue As we enter 2023, we are grateful for all the amazing books we have had the chance to share and discuss with you, our listeners. We thank you for adding to the conversations of 2022 and look forward to many more coming in the new year. Reading books expands our vocabulary, improves communication skills, builds resilience, reduces stress, and slows age-related cognitive decline. Reading increases empathy for others, stimulates our imagination, and reinforces memory. Reading provides entertainment and pleasure, as well as knowledge and information. Dave Astor says in best in his book, Fascinating Facts “Literature can send our minds to another time and place, allowing us to forget our lives and troubles for a few precious hours. It can educate us about history, open our minds, increase our empathy, make us think, give us things to converse about, and/or provide plenty of excitement along with the escapism.” Dave Astor Talking about books deepens our understanding of the text and the characters.  Sharing ideas stimulates creativity and encourages critical thinking. When we discuss books, we expand our knowledge when we encounter new perspectives and insights.  Best of all, contributing to book conversations strengthens relationships and fosters meaningful connections with others.

Christmas Bells by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas Bells by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

S3 E13: Christmas Bells by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old, familiar carols play,     And wild and sweet     The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom     Had rolled along     The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men! Till ringing, singing on its way, The world revolved from night to day,     A voice, a chime,     A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good-will to men! Then from each black, accursed mouth The cannon thundered in the South,     And with the sound     The carols drowned Of peace on earth, good-will to men! It was as if an earthquake rent The hearth-stones of a continent,     And made forlorn     The households born Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And in despair I bowed my head; "There is no peace on earth," I said;     "For hate is strong,     And mocks the song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!" Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;     The Wrong shall fail,     The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good-will to men." This poem is in the public domain. Thank you for joining us on The Book Dialogue in 2022. We look forward to entering Season 4 in 2023 and sharing the joy and adventure of reading. All the very best of this festive season to you and yours.

Silent Spring by Rachel Carson

Silent Spring by Rachel Carson

S3 E12: Silent Spring by Rachel Carson Sarah shares her thoughts on “Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. “Silent Spring inspired the modern environmental movement, which began in earnest a decade later. It is recognized as the environmental text that “changed the world.” She aimed at igniting a democratic activist movement that would not only question the direction of science and technology but would also demand answers and accountability. Rachel Carson was a prophetic voice and her “witness for nature” is even more relevant and needed if our planet is to survive into a 22nd century.” RachelCarson.org Music by Megan Wofford "Uprise" #EpidemicSound https://www.epidemicsound.com/track/hZvV2P52av/

The Churchill Sisters: The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine's Daughters

S3 E10: The Churchill Sisters: The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine’s Daughters Sarah shares her thoughts on “The Churchill Sisters: The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine’s Daughters” by Rachel Trethewey. As complex in their own way as their Mitford cousins, Winston and Clementine Churchill’s daughters each had a unique relationship with their famous father. Rachel Trethewey’s biography, The Churchill Sisters, tells their story. Drawing on previously unpublished family letters from the Churchill archives,  Rachel Trethewey brings Winston’s daughters out of the shadows and tells their remarkable stories for the first time. Rachel Trethewey, “The Churchill Sisters: The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine’s Daughters: “Theirs was a double-edged sword. Being Winston’s daughters opened up a world of privilege and opportunity, but it also raised expectations. Their positions as handmaids to the great man were the easy part of their role; establishing meaningful lives of their own away from their charismatic clan was harder. Sadly, Marigold died too young to achieve her potential, but Diana, Sarah and Mary coped in very different ways with the demands of living up to their famous name.” Music by Claude Signet "Still Water Flows" #EpidemicSound https://www.epidemicsound.com/track/qfyDdblawD/

The Things We Dare Not Tell by Henry Lawson

The Things We Dare Not Tell by Henry Lawson

S3 E9: The Things We Dare Not Tell by Henry Lawson Welcome to The Book Dialogue. My name is Sarah and I’m so glad that you joined me today.  The Book Dialogue is an exploration of poetry and books, philosophy, and all the things in life that happen and occur in and around us. We have wonderful conversations, and I would love you to be able to join us in the conversation. Today, I will be reciting a poem by Henry Lawson.  His words are a powerful reminder of how we must reach out beyond ourselves to ensure that we don’t take people at surface value. But to look beneath that façade they wear to see the heart. The Things We Dare Not Tell The fields are fair in autumn yet, and the sun’s still shining there, But we bow our heads and we brood and fret, because of the masks we wear; Or we nod and smile the social while, and we say we’re doing well, But we break our hearts, oh, we break our hearts! for the things we must not tell. There’s the old love wronged ere the new was won, there’s the light of long ago;   There’s the cruel lie that we suffer for, and the public must not know.    So we go through life with a ghastly mask, and we’re doing fairly well, While they break our hearts, oh, they kill our hearts! do the things we must not tell.    We see but pride in a selfish breast, while a heart is breaking there;   Oh, the world would be such a kindly world if all men’s hearts lay bare!   We live and share the living lie, we are doing very well,   While they eat our hearts as the years go by, do the things we dare not tell.   We bow us down to a dusty shrine, or a temple in the East,   Or we stand and drink to the world-old creed, with the coffins at the feast;   We fight it down, and we live it down, or we bear it bravely well,   But the best men die of a broken heart for the things they cannot tell. Thank you for joining me today on The Book Dialogue. We invite you to follow us on thebookdialogue.com or thebookdialogue.ca. As my sister is fond of saying, we like to think that we’re everywhere. So, join us in that everywhere and share what are you reading, what poem strikes your heart. We want to hear from you!

Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamont

Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamont

S3 E6: Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamott Welcome to The Book Dialogue!   Thank you for listening in. “Mercy is radical kindness. Mercy means offering or being offered aid in desperate straits. Mercy is not deserved. It involves absolving the unabsolvable, forgiving the unforgivable. Mercy brings us to the miracle of apology, given and accepted, to unashamed humility when we have erred or forgotten.” Anne Lamott, Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy Anne Lamott defines “Mercy” as radical kindness.  What is radical kindness?  And how do we experience it within our daily interactions?
