Montsegur in March AD 1244 was the scene of great courage in the face of over-whelming French Forces of 10,000 men in arms. Two hundred Christians were held up in a fortress high on the top of a mountain, defended by 150 knights and footmen. During the nine months of siege, Knight Del Congost and Lady Marie Magdalana live and loved. In the end, all 200 Christians were burned to death in a fagot stockade but that was not the end of the story. Modern consequences continue to be felt.

Have you ever tried to understand what real love is in your life? Have you looked through all of the clinical books, watched documentaries, and even looked in all of the wrong places? Well, there is one place you may have forgotten to look. The book I am referring to provides advice on sex, marriage, friends, and even money. The book we forget to look to for advice many times is the Bible, and it has a lot to say on many of these topics, including love. Love Is will take you on one man's journey to find out what love really is. It will explore his life, the stories of others, and take a close look at the greatest love story ever told. So open yourself to a different and very real way of understanding what love is. After reading this book, you will have found one of the greatest things in life, which is love.

"Reading the Letters of Saint Paul is a clearly written introduction to the known writings of Saint Paul and their importance for the early church. It provides a very readable beginning to know the person and message of Saint Paul in the circumstances of his own time and concentrates on identifying the major themes and teachings of Paul that have been the foundation of the church's theology and spirituality ever since. Sister Carolyn, an experienced and dynamic teacher of the New Testament, has provided a wonderful resource for understanding the first and greatest of the church's teachers who followed Jesus. She has added to each section questions for reflection, and a prayer from the church's rich tradition gathered through the centuries. It can be an ideal introductory text to Saint Paul for parish study groups, schools and individual study."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

We know it as the Golden Rule. Jesus called it the Greatest Commandment: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself ... do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' In her latest book, Joyce Meyer proposes that Christians do something revolutionary: actually practice love. The book is a hands-on guide to bringing to life the basic message that Christ brought. In it, Joyce examines what will happen if we each decide that we will refuse to live only for ourselves and instead take on the challenges and problems of others. Joyce takes a global view of the Love Revolution, addressing such issues as *human trafficking *domestic violence *rape *hunger *child prostitution as well as providing concrete actions you can take to participate the solutions to these world-wide crises. She also gets personal, discussing Biblical and psychological premises to help us practice what we preach on a daily basis.

Help Overcoming Painful Experiences (H.O.P.E.) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help people experience a life transformation through their emotional pain so they can live the purpose-filled, victorious life God intended and designed them to live. We set people free from emotional bondage and empower them to live a transformed life. To accomplish our purpose, the H.O.P.E. program was designed to help people 1) resurrect hope, 2) overcome emotional pain from a variety of issues, 3) build a safe and healthy support network, 4) comprehend the truths about God in the midst of pain while exposing and replacing lies, and 5) experience a life transformation through the healing and restorative power of Jesus Christ. Our transformation model consists of three levels. The Spiritual & Emotional Coachs Guide is used in Level 2 when we pair our members with a Spiritual and Emotional Coach (SPEC). SPECs allow us to extend our ministry by providing additional support for our members through a one-on-one mentoring relationship outside their small group. The analogy used for our members need of a SPEC is that of a contractor who can help them with their emotional and spiritual construction. Our members need a contractor (SPEC) who follows the plan of the Architect (Jesus Christ) in their life and who can help them rebuild by doing the same thing. Our members need a contractor (SPEC) who can coach them using their own experiences with the spiritual and emotional rebuilding process. Therefore, this book was designed to empower and equip our SPECs by helping them realize and tap into the knowledge and tools available to them in this role. This book also contains a topical Scripture reference guide for convenient access to verses that can be applied to a variety of issues. In addition, this book was designed to help familiarize SPECs with our organization and what their member is going through.

It was once said of Ben Franklin that in the final decade of his life he had reached the age Òwhen life slopes to an end.Ó So here I am in my 8th decade, sliding down that slippery slope! It has been a great ride! During my life as an author of 8 books, I have written about other people and what they believed. A Christian Century reviewer of my Contemporary American Theologies. A Critical Survey gave his assessment: ÒFerm's greatest asset is his uncanny ability to synthesize these diverse theologies into a larger conceptual wholeÉA landmark of clarity.Ó This is what I have tried my best to do! Here, however, as I slide down the slippery slope, I express my own views which never seem to settle down, but keep changing with the challenge of new experiences. My lifetime mentor has been America's greatest philosopher William James whose writings have taught me to be aware of Òthe varieties of religious experienceÓ and Òthe right to believeÓ about the things that matter the most. In this book I confront such important issues as the meaning of religion, faith and doubt, the elusive inner self, God, Jesus, the bible, the church, the life to come Ð and I end with a challenge to senior citizens to get on with their unfinished doubts and lives. My deepest conviction is that the more I know, the less I know Ð that life continues to be a bewildering Mystery. I will continue investigating the central claims of religion while discarding the old myths with new realities. Let us make these claims our religious act! The greatest risk is not taking one! Let us always have the courage of our confusions! Deane William Ferm

UnCorinthian Leadership

Thematic Reflections on 1 Corinthians
Author: David I. Starling

ISBN: 163087275X
Category: Religion
Page: 126
View: 3548
Amid the torrent of books on leadership that flood the marketplace of contemporary Christianity, UnCorinthian Leadership takes a fresh, challenging, and biblical approach. David Starling examines the teaching and leadership practices of Paul in 1 Corinthians, and finds both a sharp critique of the Corinthianized practices that are endemic in much modern Western Christianity and a positive, compelling theological vision for how leadership ought to function among the people of Christ. The account of Christian leadership that emerges is grounded in careful, contextual study of 1 Corinthians, and thoughtfully applied to the circumstances and cultural pressures of our own times. Paying close attention to the situation Paul addresses and the shape of his arguments, Starling highlights the vivid relevance and enduring power of the letter. Students of 1 Corinthians will find an illuminating guide to the contemporary application of the letter; Christian leaders and students of leadership will find a refreshingly biblical account of what makes Christian leadership Christian.

This poetry book is about pain, suffering, and the tasks of transcending mourning to works of arts to express in the power of the written word. It is a creative expression as a tool of coping with Post Traumatic Stress. "Grief cannot be measured by the tears I shed, but with the love I have." We project our demise out through the written words as a way of letting go for the troubled body and soul and to allow time to gently heal. "NO ONE SHOULD GRIEVE ALONE, LET THE HEALING BEGIN." -Remy Davis

Super Spiritual Stories of a Great Grandmaster

Then I looked him in the eyes and said. "Remember this Tommy. There is always something. If you can,t find it just know there is no such thing as bad luck or accident. All is Gods will. There is always something. Ask God. Know always, God helps." Yes, I know the answer to Tommys question. I accepted it initially without doubt. Gods heavenly spirit flows out into us all, with the truth. The Mystical experience will lead to the making of a new generation of Great Grandmasters. They will be Christ bearers, to the world in the future. Tommy must carry on. It was so ironic that Tommys father had been a top-notch policeman. Then Tommy had to watch his mother being killed by a policeman. What meaning, psychic or otherwise could I get from it? I guess the answer to that might lie in the fact that God is concerned about making our souls perfect. Tommy would need to gain the faith to make his limitations become possibilities and turn his fears into unconditional love. Years ago, I was training Tommys father, in martial arts and he asked me to ride with him from midnight till 8 AM. He was the only sheriffs deputy in the county, of 500 square miles, on the road. It was not like today when you dont pull up on a dangerous situation without backup. Bar fights, domestics, robberies, and what ever, you responded to alone. The tactics that Tommys father used, would get him fired today. We got a call that a boy had a gun and was shooting up a small town that had no police protection. Tommys father turned on his flashers and started to respond to the call. I could tell by the way he was driving that he was using his intuitive talents. All at once he hit the brakes, and pulled the car to the side of the road. He said. "You drive." I was not a sheriffs deputy and did not have any right to drive that vehicle. Tommys father wouldve been fired if the Sheriff found out. I drove, and he meditated. I knew Tommys father was heading for trouble not just by disobeying the rules, but also if anything went wrong, no one would believe his story. Tommys father would never be able to explain that he was using his sixth sense to link with the higher realms of perception, and God Almighty. He must have read my mind. He said to me. "I have to try to save that boys life! I am receiving an energy that is higher in vibration and totally spiritual. God Almighty has a reason for that boy to live." He picked up my coat that was laying in the back seat and put it on, covering his uniform. The boy was last seen on Main Street in the downtown area. Tommys dad directed me to turn and drive towards the school. As I did it came over the radio. Someone shot back at the kid, from an upstairs window. The kid ran towards the school. As we got close to the school Tommys father jumped out of the cruiser and ran towards the playground area. I followed on foot. I know that most people will not believe what Im about to say. Before the end of the story youll understand how this happened, because Tommy is so much like his dad, in reaching into the depths of the unknown. The boy pointed the gun at Tommys father. Tommys father said. "Im on your side. I come to fight the evil." The boy raised the gun pointing it. He fired over Tommys fathers left shoulder. Tommys father was walking towards the kid and did not stop. He said in a loving voice. "You got it! Put the gun down, your safe." Tommys father was staring into the eyes of the kid as he continued to walk towards him. The boy handed the gun to him. Tommys father placed his hand on the kids shoulder. I could see the healing energy of Ki or Spirit transfer to the young boy. We walked back to the cruiser, and the boy said, crying. "I dont know what happened. All I
