Rethinking Our Story

Can We Be Christian in the Quantum Era?

Author: G. Douglas Hammack

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1630871516

Category: Religion

Page: 246

View: 893

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But it's no secret that the Christian church is "broke," and does need fixing. Despite great effort, things are going badly for us. We've tried trendy and tech-savvy, entrepreneurial and coffee-house gritty. They're not helping. Our problem is deeper than that. Our problem is our instincts--instincts informed by our story. There was a time when the Christian church was a powerfully transformative presence in society. It can be again--but it will require radical rethinking of the story that informs our instincts. And it's time! It's been five hundred years since the Reformation, our last major update. Today is a pivotal moment in history. With our worldview upended by quantum physics, history is demanding we renew the Christian story for our times. Rethinking Our Story reframes the elements of the Christian narrative for the new era. It explores "quantum" ways of thinking about God, human nature, Jesus, salvation, and the afterlife. The future of the church and the health of our society depend on our willingness to rethink, retell, and live out a better story. We will either update our instincts and contribute to the earth's well-being--or disappear into oblivion.

Neftali ist 8 und lebt mit seiner Familie in Temuco, einer kleinen Stadt im Süden Chiles. Sein Vater ist streng und wünscht sich, dass er etwas „Vernünftiges“ lernt. Aber Neftalis Leidenschaft ist das Lesen und das Sammeln - Blätter, Steine, Vogelnester, Tannenzapfen, Muscheln. Und immer gibt es dazu Geschichten, die sich Neftali ausdenkt, und Wörter, die er auf Zettel schreibt und in seine Schublade steckt. Seine Schätze. Endlich kommt der Sommer, an dem sie ans Meer fahren, an den Pazifik, der rauh ist und kalt, aber so unendlich weit und wunderschön. Und all sein Hoffen ist, das der Vater vielleicht am Meer nicht so streng ist wie sonst. Am Ende dieses einfühlsamen und warmherzigen Romans, Neftali ist inzwischen 15, müssen wir lernen, dass irgendwann jeder seinen Weg gehen muss, so schwer er auch ist und so schmerzlich Abschiede sind. Neftali geht zum Studium nach Santiago, und aus dem Jungen aus dem Süden wird der berühmte Schriftsteller Pablo Neruda. Peter Sis, den wir aus der „Konferenz der Vögel“ kennen, hat das Buch durchillustriert und gestaltet und es auch optisch zu einem Kunstwerk gemacht.

Echoing the Story

Living the Art of Listening

God is already at work in your life--whether or not you recognize it. Most people are too busy to see or hear God and most Christians lack the intentional practice of listening to the stories of outsiders. In Echoing the Story, Brady Bryce provides a simple way for people to come together and tell the scattered stories of their lives in order to imagine them as part of a bigger story. His innovative, narrative approach invites curious skeptics, casual followers of God, and committed disciples of Jesus into community through listening to shared stories. If you are interested in exploring the entire story of the Bible, if you wonder how its stories fit together, or if you simply want to experience God in the ordinariness of your life, then this reliable guide can lead you in listening to the echoes of God. Part spiritual formation, part discipleship, part journey through the Bible--this guidebook is an experience in hearing the word of God in life. You can learn the skill of echoing the story through listening in this informative, experiential, and missional process. As participants in the story we can begin to imagine our everyday lives as stories oriented toward God.

The Story of England

Author: Michael Wood

Publisher: Penguin UK

ISBN: 0141961155

Category: History

Page: 480

View: 4226

The village of Kibworth in Leicestershire lies at the very centre of England. It has a church, some pubs, the Grand Union Canal, a First World War Memorial - and many centuries of recorded history. In the thirteenth century the village was bought by William de Merton, who later founded Merton College, Oxford, with the result that documents covering 750 years of village history are lodged at the college. Building on this unique archive, and enlisting the help of the current inhabitants of Kibworth, with a village-wide archeological dig, with the first complete DNA profile of an English village and with use of local materials like family memorabilia, Michael Wood tells the extraordinary story of one English community over fifteen centuries, from the moment that the Roman Emperor Honorius sent his famous letter in 410 advising the English to look to their own defences to the village as it is today. The story of Kibworth is the story of England itself, a 'Who Do You Think You Are?' for the entire nation. It is the subject of a six-part BBC tv series to be shown in autumn 2010.

Principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy

Learning the Essential Domains and Nonlinear Thinking of Master Practitioners

Author: Gerald J. Mozdzierz,Paul R. Peluso,Joseph Lisiecki

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135841004

Category: Psychology

Page: 470

View: 7569

This text presents a novel approach to teaching and learning the fundamental skills and techniques of counseling and psychotherapy, based on a "non-linear" process of thinking that more accurately reflects the reality of mental health practice. At the core of this text lies the idea that to best prepare students for practice with real clients, they have to learn how to think in a new way, the way that research has shown the most effective practitioners think. The result is a paradigm shift in how to teach and learn basic counseling skills, which separates this text from the competition and brings training up to speed with current practice.

On November 8, 1965, Days of Our Lives debuted on NBC. The show overcame a rocky beginning to become one of the best-loved and longest running soap operas on daytime television. For 30 years, the story of the show’s Horton family has been closely followed by a dedicated audience. Through extensive research, including the first-ever examination of the show’s archives, and interviews with cast members, writers, producers and production personnel, the show’s history is told here. This reference work provides a complete cast list from the show’s debut through 1994, as well as the most comprehensive storyline of the show ever available. Also included are family trees of the show’s characters, tracing the often confusing relationships involved in thirty years of developing roles.
