I Was Tired Today (Paperback): Rev Marsha Brown Woodard Dmin I Was Tired Today (Paperback)
Rev Marsha Brown Woodard Dmin
R223 Discovery Miles 2 230 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the 1980's when the author was ordained as a minister there were very few African American women in that role. That has changed during the past 30 years and this book gives you an inspiring glimpse into what it takes to persevere and build a successful career in the ministry. Throughout the book there are opportunities for the reader to stop and think about what they have read. These places are designed to allow the Holy Spirit to hover over your spirit and to speak to the deep (and maybe not so deep) places in you. "I Was Tired Today: Readings and Reflections on being an African American Clergywoman" captures important insights from the author's personal journey and inspires others to keep going forward - even when they are tired.

Green Sisters - A Spiritual Ecology (Paperback): Sarah McFarland Taylor Green Sisters - A Spiritual Ecology (Paperback)
Sarah McFarland Taylor
R477 R451 Discovery Miles 4 510 Save R26 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Listen to a short interview with Sarah McFarland Taylor Host: Chris Gondek - Producer: Heron & Crane It is perhaps the critical issue of our time: How can we, as human beings, find ethical and sustainable ways to live with one another and with other living beings on this planet? Inviting us into the world of green sisters, this book provides compelling answers from a variety of religious communities.

Green sisters are environmentally active Catholic nuns who are working to heal the earth as they cultivate new forms of religious culture. Sarah Taylor approaches this world as an "intimate outsider." Neither Roman Catholic nor member of a religious order, she is a scholar well versed in both ethnography and American religious history who has also spent time shucking garlic and digging vegetable beds with the sisters. With her we encounter sisters in North America who are sod-busting the manicured lawns around their motherhouses to create community-supported organic gardens; building alternative housing structures and hermitages from renewable materials; adopting the "green" technology of composting toilets, solar panels, fluorescent lighting, and hybrid vehicles; and turning their community properties into land trusts with wildlife sanctuaries.

"Green Sisters" gives us a firsthand understanding of the practice and experience of women whose lives bring together Catholicism and ecology, orthodoxy and activism, traditional theology and a passionate mission to save the planet. As green sisters explore ways of living a meaningful religious life in the face of increased cultural diversity and ecological crisis, their story offers hope for the future--and for a deeper understanding of the connections between women, religion, ecology, and culture.

Presenta el concepto b blico de liderazgo a traves de principios y personajes vistos en la Biblia misma. La cruz de Cristo y el efecto de ella en la vida Cristiana es el tema m?'s importante en la vida diaria al creyente que busca vivir una vida que refleja a Cristo. El liderazgo b blico, en igual forma, se basa en los principios de la cruz de Jes s. Qu f cil es ser seducidos por el mundo y sus medios tecnol gicos, sus teor as, su ambici n en busca del poder, las cifras y su dinero Pero Pablo nos recuerda: "Porque lo insensato de Dios es m?'s sabio que los hombres, y lo d bil de Dios es m?'s fuerte que los hombres" (1 Corintios1:25). Despu?'s de experimentar con los sistemas de liderazgo humano en este mundo de negocios, regresamos satisfechos a nuestro paradigma. Yo vuelvo al mensaje de la Cruz, el nico mensaje que reconoce Dios. Al fin de cuentas es l mismo que puso la cruz en todo el centro de su plan de salvaci n. No podemos mejorar lo que l escogi en su sabidur a infinita.

Starting Well - Building a Strong Foundation for a Lifetime of Ministry (Paperback): Dr Richard Clinton, Paul G. Leavenworth Starting Well - Building a Strong Foundation for a Lifetime of Ministry (Paperback)
Dr Richard Clinton, Paul G. Leavenworth
R291 Discovery Miles 2 910 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This is a book for emerging leaders. Leaders are individuals who have the calling, character, and competency to influence others to accomplish God's purposes. The essence of leadership in the kingdom of God is influence, not (primarily) position or personal charisma. You don't have to be a full time worker in Christian ministry to be a leader. God is calling out people who are willing to serve him in faithfulness and obedience wherever they make there living or have an opportunity to impact others. This book is targeted for those who are responding to the call of God to influence others for the kingdom. Richard Clinton and Paul Leavenworth are offering this updated and expanded version of Starting Well with the hope that our original vision will be enhanced and enlarged so that another generation of younger emerging leaders will be resourced for developing a firm foundation upon which their life, leadership, and legacy will bring honor to God through faithfulness, focus, fulfillment, and fruitfulness.

Principled Leadership - A Balancing ACT for a Lifetime (Paperback): Glenn Jackson Principled Leadership - A Balancing ACT for a Lifetime (Paperback)
Glenn Jackson
R196 Discovery Miles 1 960 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Leadership is personal. Leadership is powerful. Leaders are those people who set the tone and the stage for the life many others live. Yet, leaders are also individuals with a set of internal principles. These principles establish the basis for the decisions that leaders make. The impact then of principles determines leadership. Principled Leadership; A Balancing Act for a Lifetime (Hereafter referred to as simply Principled Leadership) addresses the values generated through the principles of leadership. What values support positive leadership? How do you get them? Where do they come from? How can a person establish a foundation that can withstand the onslaught of life? These are the type of questions Principled Leadership discusses and answers. This is not a book about religion. However, it clearly establishes that the strongest foundation one can have is a foundation balanced on the values that are found through faith, belief and the spiritual awareness and wisdom gained while living in this physical world. These values, like wisdom and honesty, become foundational for building character, not mere off shoots or accidental leaning from life. Once a person begins the journey to Principled Leadership a lot of work is required. Much of the work is internal evaluation, reconciliation, forgiveness and change. However, there are many things to do that show the world the fruit of those changes and many ways to interact with others. This interaction can be both a blessing and a hard fought effort - depending on the strength of your values. Principled Leadership takes a step toward this by establishing these principles in and as a fundamental element of leadership. This does not mean we should elect politicians who only adhere to certain religious beliefs or that religious leaders should be our national leaders. It simply means we need to return to personal leadership character that is based on those values that are spiritually based and provide us the balance we need in order to effectively live all aspects of our life. The values we find that are inspired by God are positive in all undertakings. Following those values in our leadership development and active life can only yield enhanced and improved leadership performance. This performance is what we need to change the course of our nation's and our species current trajectory into the future. Principled Leadership is designed to discuss the balance needed between the physical reality of our life and the spiritual nature we experience as we embrace the power to be found in the principles we learn from God, and the values we derive from the those principles as we establish our foundation for effective leadership.

Lessons in Pastoral Care in Small Churches - One Pastor's Perspective (Paperback): Lawrence L. Lapierre Lessons in Pastoral Care in Small Churches - One Pastor's Perspective (Paperback)
Lawrence L. Lapierre
R224 Discovery Miles 2 240 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

What would it be like to leave the world of science and engineering to enter the unknown world of being a pastor? What would it be like to leave the attractions of a large city such as Boston, MA and move to the rural areas of Maine? For that matter, what would it be like to enter the world of academia again and be forced to accept that one is now a student and not a professional? All of this and more was part of this minister's spiritual journey as he and his family strove to discern and follow God's call into pastoral ministry and later into chaplaincy. This pastor acknowledges many mistakes especially during his first two years of ministry as a student pastor. He asked for "a" church and was assigned to three. He didn't think to include any geograpical limits to how far he would travel from the seminary to serve a parish. Actually, United Methodist ministers don't make those kinds of demands. We go where we are sent, but he never expected the likes of Downeast Maine or other parts of northern New England that he was to experience as a pastor. Anyone who believes that she or he is being called into ministry should prayerfully consider that call. However, reading this book may give you pause to consider how unexpected the demands of ministry can be.

Patrick Westerhouse
R281 Discovery Miles 2 810 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Catholic Church is in serious need of reform Check the media: be it print, radio, television, or social networking and you will find unbelievable stories describing how the Church has lost its sense of integrity, distorted the gospel message, and injured and alienated the very people it is committed to serve. If we just talk about the Church's exclusion and injury of members, we will lose another generation of people with the financial and political potential to transform the Church. Now is the time to challenge the status quo and make a clarion call to action To that end, Pat Westerhouse has written Blowing the Incense from Your Eyes: Awakening the Courage to Implement Personal and Institutional Reform in the Catholic Church. This book sets forth the process for personal independence from the Church, as well as outlining a path for committed laity to challenge clerical authority and to reform the institution. The intent of this book is to motivate all "Christian Catholics" to become conscious of the nature of their relationship with the Church, and to evaluate whether their membership is the result of informed choice, or of an unexamined acceptance of dependence on a hierarchical institution. This material will inspire all members who have felt frightened, abused, excluded, injured, embarrassed, or just plain fed up, to insist on and create an experience of Church based on the message of love, forgiveness and freedom within the gospel.

The anonymous programs are spiritual programs of recovery from addictions. The person who is sponsoring another addicted person should be a recovering addict themselves, who is continually practicing the Steps of the Programs to stay free from their own addiction. An addict is beyond hia or her own ability to stay free from their addiction. They have found that no human power could keep them free either. They had to ask their Higher Power, who many call God, to help them. To their surprise, He does help them to do it successfully. He did two things spiritually. He inspired the pioneers to write the book Alcoholics Anonymous, which introduced the Twelve Steps of recovery and, included in the Twelfth Step, the responsibility oc carrying the message of recovery to those still suffering. That was the establishment of sponsorship a requirement for staying recovered. sponsorship

Many young, emerging Christian leaders, tired of fighting committees and boards over visional and operational issues, have given up on vocational ministry altogether or found avenues to express their kingdom passions outside of the local congregation. The resulting leadership drain has impacted the ability of congregations to remain on the forefront of kingdom advancing activity. How does a local congregation develop a decision-making ethos that maintains the clarity that hierarchy provides and still provides the creativity and collective wisdom of collaboration? Free to Lead offers an answer to this dilemma.

I want to be a Christian who lives each day for God and endures to the end. What does it mean to endure? - Undergo hardship or adversity without giving in; - remain firm under suffering or misfortune; - continue or persist; - sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity like a marathon runner.

This is a revised edition of an earlier book. Many churches have a Sunday celebration for women's day, men's day, and youth day. I believe some churches would expand this celebration to include other information that would be beneficial to members if they had a blueprint to follow. This book is well planned, easy to read and represents the author's true experience. Practical topics are addressed in this book. You will discover how to locate facilities, speakers, vendors, participants, and discover publicity options. You will learn how to determine registration fee and get tips on how to select a caterer. If your church does not have full-time staff to plan a conference, your volunteers will be able to follow the easy steps in this thoroughly written book. Included are sample forms and letters needed to make a conference successful. A bonus titled Five ways to Improve Your Interpersonal Skills is included. This bonus can be used as a tool to develop your volunteer conference committee or it can be used as a stand alone workshop. If you have had a desire to offer your congregation more information on issues like health, financial planning, raising children, substance abuse and other issues that affect their daily living, this is a wonderful book. It will guide you successfully through every step of planning a successful church conference. This book can also be used to plan a family reunion.
