Making Money Holy

release date: Apr 17, 2020
Making Money Holy
A challenge to live out our faith through the way we spend and share our financial resources Money has edged out sex as the forbidden topic of conversation in both secular and religious circles. Why do we think of money as shameful, whether we have lots or none at all? How can we in the church engage the topic of money in ways that are liberating and life-giving? How might we choose to deal with money in a way that is grounded in love? How do we understand money as holy? How do we recognize “enough?” Demi Prentiss shares why she believes, "we can come to understand the highest use of money as a tool for sharing God’s grace and for shaping the manifestations of God’s reign here on earth.” This book is a guide to looking at money honestly and practicing conscientious stewardship.

Radical Sending

release date: Oct 10, 2015
Radical Sending
As congregations explore their emerging visions, they need support in "equipping the saints" for their day-to-day lives and ministries beyond the doors of the building. The Dismissal -- "go in peace, to love and serve the Lord" -- becomes as important as the Eucharist in feeding the people for the journey. But churches often fail to focus on this baptismal calling to "go" into the worlds of work, family, and community. This book fills that void, focusing on how the baptized become "go-ers," providing practical and tested ways of fulfilling that calling. Go to Love and Serve builds on and complements the work of Stephanie Spellers' Radical Welcome, which called congregations to move beyond diversity and inclusion to be places where the transforming gifts, voices, and power of marginalized cultures and groups bring new life to the mainline church. Each chapter is followed by discussion questions for use with small groups or for personal reflection. * Foreword by Stephanie Spellers * Core resource for discernment in living out baptismal promises * Empowers the laity for their ministries beyond the church doors * Study questions for small group discussion or individual reflection
