    Carry Me On CD

    , ,
    For nearly 20 years Mark Riley, a Californian by birth, has come to appreciate and embrace the life, culture and sounds of the Hawaiian nation. In order to honour the people and respect the friends and place he now calls home, this recording has involved cultural expressions, natural soundscapes and Hawaiian musicians to help tell Mark's unfolding story of journeying with God on the island of Kauai as well as internationally. The melding of modern music and indigenous Hawaiian instruments on this project is a symbol of different people groups coming together in unity and exploring their God-given heritage and unique musical gifts. [playlist images="false" ids="8781,8783,8785,8787,8791,8793,8795,8797,8799,8801,8803,8805"]   As friends, Mark and I have spent time in each other's community, learning from each other, sharing life's experiences and dreaming dreams. Mark's passion to mesh song with prayer and my heart 'to ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it,' (Jer. 6:16) has been a catalyst for this musical expression of worship.   We are so thankful to those who have shared their stories and given us some understanding of Hawaiian culture and protocol. In our exploration and relationships we have seen God through each other's eyes, learning more of the mysteries of God and tocuhing a little bit of heaven on earth.'   Martin Neil.   All proceeds directly support outreach and ministries of MMI-KAUAI

    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.

    Alternative Collects: Prayers to a Disruptive and Compassionate God

    ,
    These radical prayers break the mould of the “collect” prayers that are so familiar to millions of Christians worldwide. They are the result of the author’s struggle with the blandness and predictability of so many of the church’s traditional prayers. Useful for both personal and liturgical devotion, these prayers will both challenge and nourish. Many churches use a traditional collect in their Sunday service. Some of the familiar collects stand out in our minds as we remember their helpful phrases and expressions. But many seem to pass us by as they appear safe or predictable. Graham Turner provides us with an exciting and challenging set of alternative collects. They adopt the direct and gritty style and language often found amongst the Psalms and prophets of the Old Testament, and are honest about the discomfort we often experience as we seek to live lives following Jesus Christ whilst also acknowledging the audacious grace of God towards us.

    The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy : Why Good Liturgy Matters

    ,
    We all want to celebrate the liturgy well, to experience good, uplifting, and meaningful worship. But what is the best route to follow? In The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy, Thomas O’Loughlin offers a way forward that strengthens faith, builds up Christian community, and points toward a new direction based on liturgical principles that are rooted in our natures as ritual beings as well as in the gospel. The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy explains why good liturgy is important, how to recognize it, and how to assess liturgy in terms of a larger vision of the Christian life. O’Loughlin, a seasoned theologian and teacher, identifies ten principles that make for good liturgy. Such liturgy must be honest, open, joyful, inclusive, celebrative of community, facilitative of engagement, based in creation, attentive to the marginalized, free of clutter, and true to the pattern of the incarnation. Since good celebrations build faith and bad liturgy weakens it, these principles promise to bring new life and meaning to every celebrating community.

    Chrysalis: Faith in an Emerging Culture

    ,
    Have you ever felt that the very things that once inspired and nurtured your faith now seem lifeless and perhaps even frustrating? Christians often find their faith metamorphosing and do not know how to handle the troubling changes. Using the life cycle of a butterfly as a metaphor Alan Jamieson helps readers to see that radical changes need not mean the death of personal faith. Instead he helps us to embrace them as part of a positive, Christian, Spirit-led journey with God.

    Colonies of Heaven: Celtic Models for Today’s Church

    , ,
    'Celtic' Christianity continues to fascinate us, but is it relevant to the life and witness of the church today? Ian Bradley is convinced that it is; that the building of 'colonies of heaven' drawing on Celtic models provides the way forward for the churches in the twenty-first century. Colonies of Heaven explores how the distinctive themes in the early Christianity of the British Isles – monasticism, blessing and cursing, penance and pastoral care, worship, the communion of saints and pilgrimage – might be applied in practical terms to Christian life today. Building 'colonies of heaven' (communities of prayer, artistic and creative activity, hospitality and team ministry), Bradley argues, would revitalise our churches with a new spiritual and social role in an increasingly secular and fragmented society.

    An Altar in the World

    , , ,
    In this highly acclaimed and lyrical book, the best-selling author Barbara Brown Taylor reveals the countless ways we can discover divine depths in the small things we do and see every day. People go to extraordinary lenghts, she writes, to discover this treasure. 'They will spend hours launching prayers into the heavens. They will travel half way around the world to visit a monastery in India...The last place most people will look is right under their feet, in the everyday activities, accidents and encounters of their lives...the reason so many of us cannot see the red X marks the spot is because we're standing on it.' An Altar in the the World shows us how heaven and earth meet in such ordinary occurrences as hanging out the wahing, doing the supermarket shop, feeding an animal, losing our way. It will transfrom our understanding of ourselves and the word we live in and renew our sense of wonder at the extraordinary gift of life.

    A Churchless Faith

    , , ,
    Thoroughly researched, this ground-breaking and eminently readable book is an account of the lessons learned from groups seeking to work with those who have left evangelical, Pentecostal and charismatic churches but who are nevertheless pursuing a journey of faith. It outlines some of the supportive structures and one-to-one help that churches can offer leavers, and suggests that a conversation between post-church groups and churches would be of considerable value to all.

    Creating Community: Ancient Ways for Modern Churches

    , , ,
    There is much talk today of 'new ways of being church' and 'new monastic spirituality'. As Simon Reed explored the Celtic roots of the Christian faith, in community with others who drew inspiration from our spiritual ancestors in the British Isles, he came to realise that the third-millennium church has much in common with the first-millennium church and, more importantly, much to learn from it. In Creating Community, he introduces us to a new but at the same time very old way of being church which is based upon three core elements: A Way of Life, a network of Soul Friends, and a rhythm of prayer. The book shows how the rediscovery of these elements by Christians today offers a vital key that opens up an ancient way for modern churches, one that not only helps to bring believers to lasting maturity but creates genuine and much-needed community in an increasingly fragmented world.

    Daring Greatly: How the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead

    Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect. In a powerful new vision Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that vulnerability is in fact a strength, and when we shut ourselves off from revealing our true selves we grow distanced from the things that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Daring Greatly is the culmination of twelve years of groundbreaking social research across the home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

    Life Together

    , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the now famous theologian who was martyred by the Nazis in 1945, wrote this book on the eve of World War II. It resulted from his experience as head of a semiary of the German 'Confessing Church' at Finkenwalde near Stettin. Here many of the pastors who witnessed against Hitler received their inspiration. It was, as Professor John D. Godsey points out in his study of The Theology of Deitrich Bonhoeffer, 'a kind of theological education that was startlingly new in Germany: a communal life in which Jesus Christ's call to discipleship was taken seriously.' Professor Godsey calls Life Together 'simply written, powerfully convincing and unusually quotable...It is an attempt to give practical guidance to those who want to take their lives as Christians seriously.'

    Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture

    ,
    This book is for exiles: Christians who find themselves caught in that dangerous wilderness between contemporary secular Western culture and and old-fashioned church culture of respectability and conservatism. Frost presents a plea for such Christians to embrace a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived confidently in a world that no longer values such a faith.
