#ArtsandCrafts #Cotswolds #churches is Herbert North's last major work & one of his few churches. St. Catherine's, Blackwell, 1939-40, was strongly influenced by Lethaby's All Saints at Brockhampton, 1902, its white-painted roughcast & grouped narrow lights giving a Scandi feel.
All 📷on this thread by Peter Jones, uo/ws, with thanks. The interior is stark with a compelling rhythm of sharply pointed arches, the only touches of colour being the painted sanctuary roof, candelabra & hanging rood. Pews & stalls may be glimpsed here.

North's A&C credentials are impeccable, though he is mainly known as a domestic architect with a strong body of work in Wales. At St. Catherine's, his fittings survive intact, inc. the stone font in the west end baptistry. Light pours through clear white glass.

#ArtsandCrafts #Cotswolds #churches Bit of a bust tonight as images are in short supply for the former Wesleyan chapel - the Trinity Memorial Church - in Blackwell, Worcs. It memorialises Henry Taylor of nearby villa, Leahyrst, with a simple Gothic design of c1880.

Stained glass appears to be still in situ, most of late C19 by T W Camm, before the Camm siblings introduced Arts & Crafts principles to their father's business. Paul Woodroffe was responsible for the S transept S window in 1913. See frustrating colourful blur through the arcade! Image

I was minding my business last night, reading tweets about the Bills vs Chiefs game when the below tweet caught my attention.

It's been a while since I've done a faith-based Twitter thread, but Greg Locke's comments have compelled me to speak up. Put on your seatbelts! 🧵 1/14
Greg Locke’s comments are the very reason why I started @AutismFaithNet. His statements are HIGHLY OFFENSIVE to me as a Christian AND mom of TWO sons with autism, with one that also has a rare form of epilepsy. 2/14
My boys mean EVERYTHING to me. It would be easy to write a post about how amazing they are, assuring everyone that neither one of them has a demon. But I think it’s more important to highlight another point… 3/14

#ArtsandCrafts #Cotswolds #churches Bacton St. Faith has four Powells windows. Some confusion between sources as to location means I haven't established designers yet, but they are quite a nice group, installed over a decade, 1901-11
Images with thanks to Rex Harris.
I am attempting to learn to love Powells as an exponent of Arts & Crafts. Of all the large commercial glass producers, they were the most innovative in stylistic & technical terms. These designs are rather looser than many of their contemporaries', with plainer backgrounds.
St. Firth's restoration came late, in 1892-4. Perhaps the new thinking on the value of historic fabric stayed the dreaded Nicholson hand, as he retained much C12-C15 work, rebuilding only the E wall, S porch & the chancel waggon roof, adding bosses & angels.

Greek govt announced new restrictive measures targeting the #unvaccinated population. These include suspension from work for unvaccinated staff in healthcare/pharmacies, mandating regular rapid tests (1/week) at their own expense for staff in broader public & private sector… 1/
Even more often tests (2/week) for staff in education, tourism, hospitality & arts. Totally excluding unvaccinated citizens from indoor spaces of restaurants/bars. While restricting free rapid tests in Greece’s public health hubs for the vaccinated only. 2/
I understand the concerns of govt & expert advisors about going into autumn with infections still high & vaccination pace significantly slowed down or even declining. However, we should remember that the communication strategy of this govt has been disastrous. 3/

Thread:

There are two large non-denominational #churches in my #SanDiego suburb. One is taking a cautious approach to services, the other is not and adding in political advocacy to that end as well. I am an active member of the former. #covid19
Without adding to the piling on of either side of this debate, the way I think about things on this is pretty clear. People and organizations are not equal partners in #pandemic response. Pandemics are systems of numbers and scale.
Organizations that facilitate large gatherings can have a disproportionate impact on success or failure of pandemic response. And while it's pretty clear we can't stop people from behaving the way they want, and we can't even really stop places like churches from operating...

How does keeping churches closed benefit Democrats? How will congregating during a pandemic benefit parishioners and communities? What authority does the President have to "demand" that states do anything if they're not violating federal law?

1/
What safety measures are being codified and supplemented to make congregations safer? Why do they need to be 'open' when they've already received PPP and EIDL loans, despite not paying taxes?

2/
Why does he tell *everyone* else if they don't like something, take it to court - but when he doesn't like something he dictates on Twitter? How does it benefit him electorally to increase transmission among his base?

IDHS: only four businesses required "additional education" about capacity limits under coronavirus order. Most complaints were unfounded, and no cases have progressed to fines or enforcement actions.
20,000 bundles of #PPE from state marketplace shipped to Indiana businesses so far; 70,000 more planned over next month.
30,000 new #unemployment claims, continuing to taper off from March explosion.

.@GovHolcomb about to begin his daily #coronavirus briefing.
.@StateHealthIN Commissioner Kristina Box is back, after missing the last several briefings due to the death of her father.
Box's opening statement returns to a q from yesterday, noting that Indiana has the highest infection rate of any state which is moving to reopen. She says IN has more cases because of the high number of Hoosiers with underlying health conditions.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

Been watching season 3 of #TheCrown?
Despite 2000 years of stone construction, #London has no indigenous building stone. Its geology is sand, gravel and clay. Stone has been imported since #Roman times along the #RiverThames to build that amazing city.
#nspoli #NovaScotia #mining Image
To build #Londinium (starting in 47 AD), Romans imported stone from many places in #England and from as far away as #Egypt, #Greece and #Italy. Part of the Roman defensive wall is still visible and many buildings have been uncovered (amphitheatre, forum, bath houses, etc)
#nspoli Image
Medieval #London had narrow streets and timber-framed, thatch houses so the #GreatFireofLondon destroyed much of it in 1666. Legislation afterward required stone or brick construction to prevent future fires. #Halifax NS passed a similar bylaw in 1857 after several fires.

Hungary's #mediacouncil withdrew funding to a #Documentary about the work of Márta Bolba, a pastor in Budapest, because it contains "declarations concerning actual politics that do not fit the purposes and functioning" of the funding programme.
nepszava.hu/3039056_utocen…
This is how a #regime stifles #culture because it promotes the work of a woman trying to stand up for the homeless and the abandoned & striving to openly discuss social issues touching many #Hungarians. #Pluralism, #culture & #FreedomofExpression are a threat to #Orbán's regime.
We see that the fear of falling out of gvt's favour results in officially recognised churches refraining from standing up against a gvt that violates the #humandignity of the most #vulnerable people using rhetoric twisting their very own #values...

@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Amen brother!!😍🤗

#BlackHistoryMonth is like a breadcrumb, to follow our #Clues, that as another proverb hashtag called #AmericanDOS is used, leading more #ISRAELITES to #Awake from #Christianity paganism and sorcery. #Religion has never been our friend. #WakeUp 911. #REPENT
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Understanding: #Hosea 4:6. #Christianity never told us the #Messiah whom is called #Jesus is #blackface as in naturally #Dark. Never told us that #Moses is #Dark. #Job, #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB all are #BlackLikeUs.

#Churches teach #paganism and doesn't keep #Sabbath Day holy
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA #Understanding: WE are the #descendants of #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB and were cursed because of #Disobedience and gross #Trangression of the #Laws that He gave us. #Genesis begins our #BlackHistory.

1/ Here’s what I found touring farming businesses around Newark and #Nottinghamshire yesterday for @ffc_commmission #ffccontheroad (Grateful for my @CoticLtd bike!) #food #farming #countryside
2/ Farming dominates the rural landscape. But in most rural areas more people work in industry than agriculture. #ffccontheroad
3/ Farmers told me that while their generation has had to diversify not only farm activity, but their own skill set. They need to be mechanics, accountants, labourers, investors, land managers and entrepreneurs. They typically have fewer staff than their parent’s generation.
