Redeeming Advent: Pursuing Christ Through the H...

In an ideal world, Advent would be spent in quiet contemplation, meditating upon the wonder of the Christ-child, and anticipating his return as our saviour. Instead, we enter arguably the busiest month of the year. Have we booked time off to see the kids' Nativity play? What's the secret Santa budget? And who became a vegetarian this year? Perhaps, though, it is this busyness which can be the key to a deeper connection with Christ. Perhaps these Christmas 'trimmings' have the potential to teach us more about God. And, as we open our hearts and minds, perhaps we will discover that the Christmas story was busier, messier, and more haphazard than we ever imagined. In this unique devotional, written for busy people, Lucy Rycroft helps us to use the festivities around us to fix our eyes on Christ, deepening our relationship with the Father God who sent him. 1.

The Season of the Nativity (eBook, ePUB)
5,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sybil MacBeth writes that Advent and Epiphany are the often-neglected parentheses around Christmas. And they deserve more attention and better publicity. This Season of the Nativity sets the stage the liturgical year, our yearlong journey through Scripture and salvation history. Sybil MacBeth's memoir, front-porch theology, and pages of practices and activities invite individuals and families to enjoy this season in a way that has more peace and more Christ and less chaos and guilt. She offers simple tools for busy people - perhaps to reclaim a joyful and yes, serious nativity season for the first time. Sybil MacBeth is a dancer, a doodler, and a former community college mathematics professor. Her books include Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God, Praying in Color: Kids' Edition, and Praying in Color--Portable Edition. Learn more about Sybil and her work at prayingincolor.com. "This gorgeous book is going to remain at my reading chair, dog-eared and bookmarked, all through the Yuletide season. It will also be under the tree of just about everyone on my gift list. We will all have more interesting winters, and greater intimacy with Jesus, because of it." -Lauren F. Winner, author of Still and Mudhouse Sabbath "This beautifully designed book caters to those of us for whom waiting for Christmas is the very best part about the holidays. With activities like Advent calendars, games, doodles, carols, and my personal favorite-"flaunting the color purple"-Sybil MacBeth helps us see the Nativity as an entire season stretching from Advent through Epiphany, each day an opportunity for Technicolor grace." -Jana Riess, author of Flunking Sainthood and Flunking Sainthood Every Day If you think you're already familiar with Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, think again! After reading this book, you'll never see those seasons in the same way. With humor, spiritual wisdom, and innovative activity suggestions, the author makes you open your eyes in wonder." -Linda Douty, spiritual director and author of 5 books, including Rhythms of Growth: 365 Meditations to Nurture the Soul "With heart-open honesty, Sybil MacBeth opens the door to a new exploration of the three-part Nativity Season. With personal and family-friendly practices and her appealing approach, Sybil invites both seasoned Christians and curious seekers to prepare in Advent, nestle into Christmas, and wonder anew in Epiphany. Extremist? Not really, but perhaps the leader of a new awakening. -Connie Denninger is a retreat leader, teacher of prayer and spiritual disciplines, and advocate of the Arts in Christian Practice Sybil MacBeth's genius is for getting the grand themes - like prayer and yearning and waiting and birth and joy - into real life. She starts with scripture and tradition and solid theology and ends up right on the kitchen table or living room (where children and adults alike are actually enjoying one another). As an on-the-ground parish priest, I want this book in every home of every parishioner. That's because I know they want what I want - not to dread the approach of Christmas and feel inadequate in its wake - but to truly experience God's great activity before, during and after in a way that's full of pleasure and meaning.

High School Substitute Teacher's Guide: You Can...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

You're a high school substitute? Are you crazy? We were so mean to them! This is a common reaction when I tell people what I do, but I love substitute teaching at the high school level. I started substitute teaching in 1989, fresh out of college. I was looking for a way to support myself while I took my "fifth year" of college in secondary education classes and did my student teaching. A friend told me, "You have a bachelor's degree, so you can be a substitute." In writing this book, I hope to be as good a friend for you as he was for me. This book explains not only how to get a high school substitute teaching job, but also how to do the job so well that it will be rewarding in and of itself. If you know a college graduate who is out of a job, tell them about this book. It might help them support themselves in the meantime. Being an excellent substitute can also open the door to a regular full-time teaching position. Up until the advent of the Internet, most books for substitute teachers consisted largely of worksheets the substitute could photocopy and hand out to students, in the event the regular teacher hadn't left enough work to fill the whole class period. Today, you can instantly find and project one of a million free Internet worksheets. Heck, 99% of today's high school students have phones capable of finding these worksheets. You won't find worksheets in this book. High school students are too smart to do a substitute's ungraded busy work anyway. Today's high school students crave human interaction. I've seen them get more excited about a classroom discussion than about watching a movie. Times have changed, and I have remained a successful high school substitute teacher by embracing the changing times. Give my book a read and let me show you how to be a good high school substitute teacher who enjoys the job. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Roberts.
