Embracing Travail

by Cynthia S.W. Crysdale, Embracing Travail Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Embracing Travail books, In Embracing Travail, Cynthia Crysdale explores the mystery of redemption through the central Christian symbol of the cross. Traditionally, the cross has been understood by male theologians as redeeming humankind from sin as arrogant ambition. Yet the difficulties of understanding sin primarily in this way, especially for women and those on the "underside" of history, has been recognized for several decades. Rather, argues Crysdale, by virtue of life experience, people - women as well as men - enter the drama of the cross and resurrection at different points: some through repentance, seeking forgiveness, and others through a courageous claiming of self-identity, seeking healing. In an approach that is both anecdotal and analytical, personal and theological, Crysdale provides a renewed understanding of Christian redemption for preachers and Christian educators as well as the general public.

Faithful Celebrations

by Sharon Ely Pearson, Faithful Celebrations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Faithful Celebrations books, • Experiential activities for celebrating the saints • For use in churches, schools, camps, and home settings Many of our experiences in life happen when several generations are together – at church, at home, in our communities. Often we only celebrate the saints on All Saints Sunday or when a particular saint is commemorated in a secular way. This volume in the Faithful Celebration series focuses on some well-known and some not-so-well-known saints, many who are not all officially "sainted" but certainly having lived a life of faith under difficult circumstances. Each event recalling a particular saint includes key ideas, a cluster of activities to experience the key ideas, materials needed, full instructions for implementation, background history and information, music, art, recipes, and prayer resources to use in a small, intimate or large multi-generational group. For children, youth, adults, or any combination of ages any of these activities can take place in any setting. Faithful Celebrations: Making Time for God with the Saints - Patrick of Ireland - Nicholas of Myra - Joan of Arc - Sebastian of Gaul - Absalom Jones of Philadelphia - Julian of Norwich - Emmegahbowh of White Earth

Crazy Christians

by Bishop Michael B. Curry, Crazy Christians Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Crazy Christians books, We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way. It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness. From Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis.

Lasst Uns Die Welt Auf Den Kopf Stellen

by Michael B. Curry, Lasst Uns Die Welt Auf Den Kopf Stellen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Lasst Uns Die Welt Auf Den Kopf Stellen books, Was passiert, wenn die Liebe regiert: Royal-Wedding-Prediger Michael B. Curry – der mit seiner Rede auf der Hochzeit von Prinz Harry und Meghan Markle Millionen begeisterte – zeigt, wie verrückt und lebensverändernd die Botschaft der Christen ist, mit der die Welt auf den Kopf gestellt werden kann. Woran denken Sie, wenn Sie das Wort »Christen« hören? An zurückhaltende Menschen, die sonntags andächtig in den Bankreihen einer Kirche sitzen? Bischof Michael B. Curry ist davon überzeugt: Ein braves Christentum bringt uns alle nicht weiter. Was diese Welt braucht, sind Christen, die genauso verrückt sind, wie Jesus. Die anders handeln, als es weithin üblich ist. Menschen, die ihren Besitz und ihre Zeit großzügig mit anderen teilen, die nicht nach dem Lohn für ihr Handeln fragen, die auf ihr Recht verzichten. Und die sogar denen vergeben, die sie schlecht behandeln. Und die dadurch dazu beitragen, Gottes Traum für diese Welt wahr zu machen. In seinem Buch entfaltet Bischof Curry die verrückte und lebensverändernde Vision Jesu. Eine Botschaft der Hoffnung auf eine neue, verwandelte Welt, in der die Liebe regiert. Eine Liebe, die stärker ist als alle Gewalt. Für Bischof Curry ist der Weg der Liebe der einzige, um den Herausforderungen der Zukunft begegnen zu können. Ein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer, verrückt zu leben wie Jesus – und so die Welt zu verändern ... »Jesus war verrückt. Er betete sogar noch, als die Leute ihn umbrachten. ›Vater, vergib ihnen, denn sie wissen nicht, was sie tun.‹ (Lukas 23,34). Und alle, die ihm nachfolgen wollen, die mit ihm gehen und leben wollen, muss man wohl ebenfalls so bezeichnen – verrückt. Wir brauchen verrückte Christen!« Michael B. Curry Aus dem Inhalt: • Zu wissen: Wir sind Teil von etwas Größerem, das gibt uns Kraft • Wir brauchen verrückte Christen • Lasst uns den Traum Gottes leben • Wir können die Welt verändern ...

Better Get It In Your Soul

by Reid Hamilton, Better Get It In Your Soul Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Better Get It In Your Soul books, This book offers hope to parishes searching for a way to make their liturgies more meaningful in the local context. Written by a priest and a musician who have worked together for many years in the Canterbury House ministry at the University of Michigan, Better Get It In Your Soul describes methods that demonstrate a respect for others’ gifts and skills, discernment of spiritual needs, and welcoming the creative force of the Holy Spirit into the planning process. Though thoroughly based in the Book of Common Prayer liturgy, the experience and ideas presented here are described in ways that will be useful to all liturgical denominations. Congregants at these liturgies have commented: “I only know that I believe in God – I’m not sure of much else. But I can worship here.” “[It] is a perfect combination of music of the people and the mystical sense of Christ.”

Crowning Glory

by , Crowning Glory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Crowning Glory books, This is the first extensive collection of descants on hymns in Episcopal sources that do not appear in the published hymnals. It contains descants by twenty-two composers on one hundred one hymn texts set to eighty-one hymn tunes. An added bonus is that twenty-seven of the tunes have alternate harmonizations. In addition to dramatic descants on triumphal and celebrative hymns, several hymns are included that require the descant to be reflective and quiet. Many may be played by instruments rather than sung by sopranos and/or tenors. These descants, harvested from working Episcopal church musicians, are examples of the useful day-to-day work in the local church. Even though they are small musical gems and greatly enjoyed by congregations, such practical compositions rarely obtain exposure beyond the local parish or diocese. The theme of the 2005 Annual Conference of the Association of Anglican Musicians in Baltimore, MD was "Come to us, Creative Spirit: The Art and Craft of the Church Musician." The vision embodied in that conference title echoes a hymn text by David Mowbray (Come to us, creative Spirit) which honors the creativity of those who speak their faith artistically and seeks to make such voices available to all. It is in that spirit that this book of descants is published.
