Can your church be both seeker-friendly and Spirit-filled? In Clear the Stage, Scott Wilson and John Bates share how God gave them a vision to marry these two divergent streams of church practice. You don t have to choose between the old revivalist mentality and the more recent seeker-friendly plan. Instead, the authors present a whole new way of doing church that clears the stage so the Spirit of God can do what only He can. Based on their own life-changing experiences, Scott and John share how you can use the sacred traditions of the Pentecostal experience to reach out to the lost while also discipling believers in a new and relevant way."

Hoichi Kano's responsibilities are just a bit heavier than those of your typical teenager - taking out the garbage, mowing the lawn, or washing the car fall just a bit short of single-handedly fighting an alien colonization! Luckily, Hoichi's got the right tools for the job, like a state-of-the-art integrated gunsuit and the antimatter-powered giant robot, Exaxxion. That's some heavy-duty ordnance, but the invaders didn't make it halfway across the galaxy without some pretty impressive gear, including a major league mega-robot of their own that incapacitates Exaxxion, forcing Hoichi to take on the Riofaldian hordes solo in a last-ditch effort to free Exaxxion, humanity's last chance to prevail against extraterrestrial tyranny!

Medieval mystics have much wisdom to offer contemporary middle-aged women grappling with empty nests, evolving careers and relationships, spiritual growth, and physical issues. Mechthild, for example, began her writing career at the age of fifty. And Julian, referring to Christ as "our kind mother, our gracious mother," has a vision of Christ allowing us to make mistakes, a helpful image for women mothering nearly adult children. Each chapter focuses on a topic of interest to modern middle-aged women. Useful for individuals and groups.

Pastoral Identity as Social Construction

How do chaplains and counselors form their identities as “pastoral” caregivers in challenging clinical contexts such as institutional, interdisciplinary, postmodern, inter-cultural, and multi-faith work environments? This book is a product of the fifteen-year-long journey towards answering a well-known but hardly answered question about pastoral identity. Based on narratives of many pastoral practitioners who work in hospitals or counseling settings, the author puzzles through ways for helping professionals to form their identities in bewildering work environments. Previous studies on pastoral identity have focused on an individual interiority of pastoral practitioners and have emphasized mainly the caregivers’ perceptions and practices from a developmental and training perspective. Grounded in an empirical study of active pastoral care providers, this book presents pastoral identity as a relational and interactional property, socially constructed among pastoral care partners, culture, and God. Findings of the empirical study support contemporary theological and social psychological discourses: identity is embedded in and embodied by relationships. This book will guide you through confusions, worries, insights, and woes you have experienced while helping others in order to envision yourself more clearly as a spiritually-embodied and pastorally-tending caregiver. You will find yourself to be more who you are and engage more with others as they become who they are.
