Westminster John Knox Press: Contrary to many of today’s so-called family values, our values go beyond one or two loaded social issues to a wholehearted lifestyle of practicing compassion, hospitality, justice, peace, and belonging.
More than Words articulates ten values that forward-thinking, openhearted people want to embody in their lives and pass on to their children. With practical ideas and thought-provoking questions, this book inspires families to live more intentionally, engage their communities, and make a difference in the world.
Advent Devotional – Partners in Prayer 2013
by Erin Wathen
Publisher: Chalice Press
Each year the writers of Partners in Prayer lead you on a journey of prayer and reflection through the Advent season.
This year author Erin Wathen invites you on a journey to the heart of wilderness, where the Christmas season isn’t about shopping or cookie parties. Travel through weekly themes with biblical characters as companions and discover how God called them off the beaten path and into new life. Many criticize the “material, consumer-driven” holiday without mention of a better way. But there must be one. If so many founders of our faith sought God in wilderness and emerged in the light of new life, then we can, too. What will come of moving with intention, seeking a desert path along the frantic highway? Come and see with Partners in Prayer 2013.
