    The Art of Healing Prayer : Bringing Christ’s Wholeness to Broken People

    The Art of Healing Prayer aims to help both clergy and laity to develop a greater understanding of those who come seeking healing, and to become skilled in praying for such people biblically, imaginatively and sensitively. The authors recognize that this is a costly ministry, requiring counsellors to find time in their own often busy lives to guide others, and necessitating that they continue to be open to the gifts of God's grace. However, it is a ministry that often results in joy and transformation, as those healed from long standing inner woundedness become sources of goodness and healing for others.

    Seize the Day

    , , , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's faith-driven resistance to the Nazis during World War II resulted in his execution. Multitudes have been inspired by the hauntingly powrful words of this man who was willing to die for his convictions. In this collection of 365 meditations Dr Charles Ringma allows us to experience the power of Bonhoeffer's words in a way that challenges us to live out our discipleship daily - combining personal spirituality with an active concern for those around us. These daily meditations on Bonhoeffer's writings may make you uncomfortable. But if you are willing to wrestle - as Bonhoeffer did - with what it means to be a follower of Christ, you'll be empowered to seize each day.

    Catch the Wind: a precursor to the emergent church

    Innovation and openness to new idea are all around us, but in the church there seems to be a way of thinking and behaving that has written change out of the agenda. As a result, many have left the church or, as Charles Ringma says, 'go to church out of habit or guilt, but are frustrated, alienated and don't participate in its life.' How can people be equipped to reverse this trend? How can they begin to be responsible for their own spiritual growth? What might the church of the future look like? How can churches be organised as if people matter? Can the experience of church be more like that of a family? These are the questions that Charles Ringma confronts in Catch the Wind. It doesn't offer a single 'model' for the church. But is does make a case for a more dynamic less structured and risk-taking approach that both builds people up and equips them for mission in the world.

    Sabbath Time: A hermitage journey of retreat, return, communion

    ,
    'A serious health breakdown in my thirties, where I spent over six months in recovery, made me aware of the need for greater balance in my life. Yet since then, I have continued to do too much, say “yes” instead of “no” too often, and I have struggled to set aside time for rest, prayer and reflection. But finally, after a year of thought and planning, I decided to take a whole six months off...' From the Author Preface   Description  Being left alone to embark on a reflective journey is a great gift – particularly in our age, where remaining connected is such a driving expectation. Charles decided to take a whole six months off and to spend much of this time in a hermitage on friends’ property. To enter a space of disconnection is both a scary and an exhilarating experience. And to 'down' tools and be still without an agenda of expectations is wonderfully open and freeing. It is also walking into mystery. Who knows what might happen? About the Author  Charles Ringma has taught in universities, colleges and seminaries in Asia, Australia and N. America. And he has worked in urban and overseas mission for several decades. He is Emeritus Professor of Regent College, Vancouver, is a Franciscan Tertiary (tssf) and companion of Northumbria Community, Brisbane. Besides working for justice, he plants rain forest trees, grows vegetables and pens books on Christian spirituality.

    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity

    ,
    Whispers from the Edge of Eternity – Charles Ringma (Reflections on Life and Faith in a Precarious World) The Christian journey is far more complex than an evolutionary upward movement. There are strange contours in the road. Faith is the evidence of things unseen, but it also has its uncertainties, and our healing is far from complete. Moreover, we continue to live in a world where there is so much injustice. This meditational reader seeks to reflect something of this kind of textured picture of the Christian journey. Whispers from the Edge of Eternity contains daily Scripture readings and reflections on many issues of the Christian life. Throughout this book Charles Ringma mediates the wisdom of theologians, philosophers, novelists, and writers on Christian spirituality from across the centuries, challenging us to experience God not only times of prosperity, but also in the shadows of pain and suffering. Readers will be encouraged in the journey of discipleship by such diverse voices as St. Augustine, Blaise Pascal, Dorothy Day and Henri Nouwen.
