  • Strategic Thinking : How To Sustain Effective Ministry

    $21.99

    Strategic thinking involves an element of risk. This is because the goal is not only to perfect ongoing programs, but to initiate new ideas and terminate ineffective tactics. The risk of strategic thinking arises because of the changes in the mission field (or community) in which, and toward whom, the church focuses its vision. Demographic research and lifestyle sensitivity are necessary for effective church ministries. Whenever a church fails to track demographic trends and shifting lifestyle expectations, the strategic thinking always stalls. Program improvements and new ideas never go beyond the comfort zones of the members. Ineffective tactics are simply repeated over and over again because the church doesn’t want to offend particular members or financial givers. In order to go beyond the box to be relevant to the changing community, churches must accept more risk. They must be willing to go beyond the comfort zones of members to improve the effectiveness of programs. They must be willing to risk failure and learn from mistakes by implementing creative new ideas. And they must be willing to stop wasting limited resources of time, talent, and money on sacred cows that no longer drive the church toward its vision. The challenge, of course, lies in keeping that line straight. This is not a curved line connecting identity, mission, and results. It is not a wavy line, or an intermittent line, or even partially angled line. It is not a line that sways one way to protect this self-interest, and another way to protect that membership privilege. It is not a line that takes a circuitous route to its destination in order not to disturb some leader’s sensibilities or avoid stressing some faction’s opinions. It is a straight line. Nothing else will really do. Keeping this line straight is the art of strategic thinking. Some new ideas will need to be started. Some old programs will need to be ended. Ongoing tactics will need to be adjusted. All this keeps the line straight. Moreover, some leaders will need to be hired or acquired; some leaders will need to be fired or dismissed; and some leaders will need to be redeployed. All that effort keeps the line straight. Therefore, strategic thinking is not about seeing a need and addressing it. It is about focusing a purpose and pursuing it … doggedly, persistently, and single-mindedly.

  • Church Guide For Making Decisions Together

    $22.99

    Recent political events in the USA indicate that ordinary people are weary of traditional politics and ways of doing business in the halls of power. A similar mood is present in churches around the world. Ordinary church members are tired of the fighting and politicking that seem to privilege the same people all the time. They want a new way of making decisions in their churches and in their representative meetings. This book shows them how such a hope can be realized. Robert’s Rules of Order, or the traditional parliamentary style of decision-making used in many churches, can work for simple decisions that are aggregated and passed by consent. For complex and divisive issues, churches need a decision process that does not result in a combative, winner-take-all approach to church life. A healthy church also tries to involve commitment from a wide range of stakeholders rather than privilege a few well-informed and capable speakers. A vital and healthy congregation yearns for a more collaborative, respectful, encouraging, engaging, and empowering process. This book on discernment in the church provides a step-by-step guide on how to create a new way of working together. Drawing on tried and tested processes, it advocates for a consensus building approach and showing people how it can work in their setting (local church or judicatory meetings). Readers will learn how to design a consensus building business process for their church meeting while still respecting the denominational and legal requirements under which they must operate. This book is for leaders, members of church boards and committees, and church members who know that there is something wrong with the present system but don’t know what to do about it. This guidebook is hopeful, inspiring, and practical.

  • Its Complicated : A Guide To Faithful Decision Making

    $16.00

    In this easy-to-read book, pastor Jack Haberer helps you seek God’s will for your life. You’ll move from deep theological considerations to street-level, daily-life practicalities–and you’ll learn to chart a course through life’s complexities, guided by the Scriptures, in the company of the church. My only complaint is that it wasn’t available thirty years ago!
    -Brian D. McLaren, author, speaker, and activist

    Jack Haberer’s It’s Complicated helps serious Christians figure out what to do when life gets complicated and the distinctions between good and bad are not so clear. Using Bible passages as a guide, Haberer affirms and then challenges many closely held beliefs, making traditional distinctions between conservative and liberal Christians obsolete.

    It’s Complicated harks back to Joseph Fletcher’s twentieth-century classic Situation Ethics (Westminster John Knox Press) and gives readers a toolkit for Christian decision making in a variety of complex situations. The book provides a framework for readers to reference when they’re confronting moral dilemmas in their own lives, what Haberer calls doing ethics by spreadsheet.

    Christian Women Making Wise Choices Every Day

    Life is made up of choices. Choice of schools. Choice of spouse. Choice of careers. Choice of worship. There was a time when our choices were much simpler, and there were fewer of them to make. Auto manufacturer, Henry Ford, once said, A customer can have a car painted any color he wants – as long as it’s black.

    Today’s super stores are proof that we now have choices by the hundreds. What size? What flavor? What color? What price? What brand? The options are sometimes mind-boggling.

    Though many of our choices are inconsequential, some set the direction for the rest of our lives – even into eternity. These choices require godly wisdom, biblical counsel, and prayerful reflection.

    Carolyn Steverson serves as a capable guide through the maze of life choices. Her godly wisdom and example show the way for today’s Christian woman to make God-honoring choices.

    Additional Info
    If you strip away the rosy language of school-business partnership, win-win situation, giving back to the community, and the like, what you see when you look at corporate marketing activities in the schools is example after example of the exploitation of children for financial gain.
    Over the long run the financial benefit marketing in schools delivers to corporations rests on the ability of advertising to brand students and thereby help insure that they will be customers for life. This process of branding involves inculcating the value of consumption as the primary mechanism for achieving happiness, demonstrating success, and finding fulfillment. Along the way, branding children – just like branding cattle – inflicts pain.
    Yet school districts, desperate for funding sources, often eagerly welcome marketers and seem not to recognize the threats that marketing brings to children’s well-being and to the integrity of the education they receive.
    Given that all ads in school pose some threat to children, it is past time for considering whether marketing activities belong in school. Schools should be ad-free zones.

  • Soul Of Discernment

    $20.00

    The Soul of Discernment provides concrete steps for groups of people who work together and need to make important decisions: church sessions, nonprofit hiring committees, etc. Liebert calls this process the Social Discernment Cycle, a process for seeking God’s call in a particular situation. It is called ‘social’ because it deals primarily with human communities in their social-structural, rather than interpersonal aspects, Liebert explains. It is a cycle because one completed round of discernment prepares for the next. The Social Discernment Cycle is particularly apt for any discernment that involves a structure, system, or institution.

    This book helps groups work through this cycle to answer the question, How is God leading us, individually or together, to act in this particular moment in our organization?

  • Its All About Choices

    $15.00

    The bottom line of this book advises that talent is inherited but character must be learned. It’s all about the choices we make in developing our character that embellish the gift of talent, permitting us to make a positive difference in the quality of our lives. We all know smart people who won’t focus, fail to apply themselves to productive endeavors and make choices that interrupt their lives and the lives of those close to them. Men and women of average talent but with an undeniable strength of character often outpace these smart people who are muddling through life making one bad choice after another. The stories in this book will assure you that blending talent and character is not as difficult as one might imagine. It takes a mix of persistence and determination, knowledge and wisdom and patience and compassion. Take choices seriously and change is right around the corner.

  • 28 Truths To Know Before One Leaves This World

    $10.00

    Cremation, breastfeeding, the feminist movement, an extraordinary look at medication, man’s relationship to man, animals, plants, and the entire cosmos, and much that we know and take for granted as given assume an intriguing treatment in this current work. There has been a multitude of research probing the human situation, many of them taking the holistic approach that 28 Truths to Know Before One Leaves the World at first glance seems to thread. Yet, a page later, one could glimpse the entirely different approach Charles Bayas has taken on this one. Prepare to be challenged by the views presented here, as perhaps can hardly be seen in other works dissecting the same issues. About the Author Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on November 13, 1923 from a Christian Catholic family and the third of six children, Charles finished medical school of Port-au-Prince. He spent three years in Haiti to bring healing, comfort, and hope to his fellow Christians. He married Florence Giordani, a visiting nurse who later bore him one son and one daughter, all while in the middle of economic and political instability in the country. He left Haiti with his family for the USA, where he continued to serve and help the community up to the year 1989, at which time he retired from the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital as family physician. In 2009, Charles lost Florence to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, a tragic event in his life. The loss of his wife and his firm belief in God, however, inspired him to write this book.

    5. Religions On Sexuality And Marriage
    6. Religions On Making And Keeping Families
    7. Religions On Anger And Violence
    8. Religions On Charity And Beggars

    Additional Info
    The study of comparative religious ethics is at a critical juncture, given the growing awareness of non-Christian ethical beliefs and practices and their bearing on social change. Christine Gudorf is at the forefront of rendering comparative-and competing-religious beliefs meaningful for students, especially in the area of ethics.

    Unlike other texts, Gudorf’s work focuses on common, everyday issues-including food and diet, work, sex and marriage, proper dress, anger and violence, charity, family, and infirmity and the elderly-while drawing out ethical implications of each and demonstrating how different religious traditions prescribe rules for action. An introductory chapter reviews standard ethical theory and core elements of comparative religious analysis. Each chapter opens with a riveting real-life case and shows how religious ethics can shed light on how to handle the larger issues, without determining for the reader what a proper ethical response might be.

    Helpful pedagogy, including summaries, questions, and list of readings, along with special chapter features, charts and photographs and a glossary, combine to make this new text most suitable for the wide array of courses in comparative religious ethics.

  • Called To Love

  • From Santa To Sexting

    $14.99

    It’s a rough, tough world for middle schoolers today. Yet the decisions they face are pivotal, affecting the whole of life. FROM SANTA TO SEXTING discusses the myriad pressures middle schoolers face and empowers parents to guide and protect their children during these important years.

    Not long ago most kids believed in Santa Claus. Now, barely on the cusp of adolescence, they are thrust into an adult world, stripped bare of the protections afforded previous generations. Under greater pressure than ever before from the culture, school, and parental expectations middle schoolers are growing up at warp speed. Their loss of innocence has been profound.

    FROM SANTA TO SEXTING provides valuable information and perspective for parents as well as those who work with middle schoolers: youth directors, pastors, teachers, school administrators, psychologists, and physicians. Dr. Brenda Hunter and Kristen Blair courageously address hard and controversial topics the power of media in kids lives, kids experimentation with sex, alcohol, and prescription drugs, cyber-bullying, and self-destructive behavior. Parents need to reclaim their God-given authority in their children’s lives. FROM SANTA TO SEXTING, which includes interviews with experts, parents, and the kids themselves, will arm parents with the practical information, inspiring stories, and resources they need to keep kids safe, strong, and secure in middle school. Parents have enormous power to guide and protect their children in a culture that long ago forgot that fences and guardrails make childhood possible.

    Additional Info
    Do you have an effective decision making process in place, one that you can consistently rely on to help you make good decisions? Most people don’t, and as a result they are never quite certain if they have made the best choice, and if their final decision was truly a good decision.

    In What’s Your Decision?, a fast-moving, personal, and highly practical book, the authors introduce readers to a time-tested Ignatian approach to effective decision making. Based on the insights of St. Ignatius, the book addresses common questions such as What’s important and what’s not when it comes to making decisions? Can I ever trust my gut? What do I really want?

    Ultimately, What’s Your Decision? helps us understand that a God decision always precedes a good decision: When we invite God-who cares deeply about what we do-into the decision-making process, we find the freedom to make the best choice.

  • Moral Dilemmas : An Introduction To Christian Ethics

    $22.00

    How can we make decisions that are consistent with our basic values? We must first, Wogaman says, identify basic moral presumptions that can guide our thought as we face moral dilemmas. These basic moral presumptions include equality, grace, the value of human life, the unity of humankind, preferential claims for the poor and marginalized, and the goodness of creation. The burden of proof, he argues, must be borne by decisions that are contrary to such presumptions.

    Wogaman then illustrates how moral decision making works on the personal, national, and global levels and in communities of faith. He pulls into the conversation difficult ethical issues such as divorce, sexuality, abortion, political choices, economic justice, affirmative action, homosexuality, nuclear disarmament, economic globalization, global warming, international security, environmental policies, and military power. In the process, he provides a smart and helpful guide to Christian ethical behavior.

  • How Then Should We Choose

    $16.99

    The three-views approach is an effective and succinct means of introducing theological subjects to readers of all levels. How Then Should We Choose? applies this proven format to the vital topic of decision making and the Christian’s search for the will of God. Garry Friesen of Multnomah Bible College, Henry and Richard Blackaby of Blackaby Ministries International, and Gordon T. Smith of Regent College each contribute summaries of their perspectives on God’s will and their approaches to decision making. Friesen discusses the wisdom view, Henry and Richard Blackaby delineate the specific will view, and Smith champions the relationship view of God’s will. In an effort to make this discussion reader friendly, the contributors have applied their beliefs regarding God’s will and decision making to three practical, concrete topics: career, relationships, and stewardship. Using three hypothetical stories, the authors illustrate how their respective views would influence decisions in these common areas of concern.

  • Financial Wisdom Of Ebenezer Scrooge

    $14.95

    –The Wall Street Journal

    Ebenezer Scrooge would seem an unlikely source from which to glean financial wisdom. However, Dickens’ classic tale of how Scrooge left behind his miserly ways and transformed into a joyful, compassionate and generous man is a powerful model we all can benefit from today.
    Unlike other financial planning books that focus narrowly on the ‘dollar and cents’ of money, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge is an easy read. Written for the layperson, this book provides advice that is simple, transformational and timeless.
    Through the process they’ve used successfully with their clients, the authors will show you how to recognize ways unconscious Money Scripts may keep you trapped; how to deal with the relationship between your net worth and your self-worth; how to discover your authentic goals and values; how to permanently change self-destructive money behaviors; and, through five principles of financial prosperity, how to leave a family legacy of financial wellness.

  • Way Of Discernment

    $18.00

    How can Christians invite God into their decision making? Liebert, who teaches spirituality at San Francisco Theological Seminary, says that discernment is about aligning human will with God’s. Unlike ordinary decision making, it requires prayer and the accountability of a faith community to help us know which way to go. Drawing on Christian thinkers through the ages, from Ignatius of Loyola and Jonathan Edwards to Frederick Buechner and Thomas Merton, Liebert teaches that discernment is both a spiritual gift and an acquired habit that can be honed through regular practice. To that end, she provides extensive exercises to help readers identify and work through discernment issues in their own lives. Readers should plan to take time with this book, because the exercises yield their richest rewards through careful and slow implementation-ideally over a period of 11 weeks. While the author cautions that absolute certainty is rarely possible, a diligent practice of discernment can lead to confirmation. Liebert’s wise spiritual counsel will aid many seekers as they determine their next step.

  • Teen Proofing : Fostering Responsible Decision Making In Your Teenager

    $16.99

    John Rosemond is a renowned child psychologist who has helped millions of parents learn to raise their children and remain sane.

    In Teen-Proofing, now available in paperback, he tackles the challenges of raising a teenager with his trademark user-friendly, humorous, and commonsense style. Rosemond lays out a perfectly sound and logical case for recognizing the realities of the teen-parent relationship, forming the foundation, and parenting with the Long Rope Principle. In short, the author demonstrates how Mom and Dad can avoid the pitfalls of becoming dictatorial Control Freaks, skirt the potholes of turning into permissive Wimps, and enjoy the freedom and rewards of parenting in a controlled (but not controlling) and relaxed manner. Teenagers, Rosemond readily admits, can be a challenge. But infusing young adults with a sense of personal responsibility, then showing them the results of good and bad choices, is a goal every parent can achieve.
