The goal of this book is to raise the consciousness of the state of being of the institutional church, and the importance of mobilizing the Christian church as a family preparation center for daily Christian living. For the African-American church, this means that the social and spiritual welfare of the congregation must be open for change. Serious attention needs to be given to providing adequate teaching and training on survival skills as well as spiritual empowerment. It is my desire that this book will aid all churches on how to have a dynamic, productive ministry beyond morning worship. The research in this book is not a model for African-American churches only, nor is it the norm for all churches in general. The book is in no way a thesis on all the problems and answers that the church must address in the 21st century, but it does offer some thought provoking ideas and some realities that we as a Christian community must confront and address.
Living, Loving and Longing' is a collection of short stories that explore love and life in modern India recounted in the old fashioned way. The stories bring out the euphoria of newfound love as also the yearning of those who have loved and lost. The protagonists range from the innocent child in kindergarten to the fanciful collegiate, a house-wife, a single working woman and even an elderly grandfather who cannot forget his first love. The book has something for everyone and each story will touch your heart with its emotional connect. The reader is lulled into believing that they are reading about themselves or somebody very close to them, and then, in her own unmistakable style Kala Devi weaves a twist in the tale - that stay with them, long after they have turned the page.
Many have called women the fairer sex. To those I say, come home late from a night out with the guys when the wife expects you home three hours ago. See the venom in her eyes as she stares you down and I defy any man not to cringe like a whipped poodle. In many ways, women are the stronger sex. Take childbirth for instance. It's highly doubtful a man could take pushing a football out a hole three times too small. Most men run for Mommy the second they get a splinter or a cold. And that's where this anthology shines. Like a teenage girl in high school, females can be more ruthless, cunning and evil than any man on the planet. Lacking empathy, they can slice up a person's self esteem till there's nothing left but bloody pieces. And now an all female stable of writers have been allowed to run free in the world of the undead. So see the living dead through a woman's eyes. But be careful...you might not like what stares back at you. With stories by: Alyn Day, Gretchen Elhassani, Chauma Smith Guss, Jennifer Goraczkowski, Jennifer Koehler, Rebecca Snow, Katie Simmons J.L. Petty, Suzanne Robb, Dana Bell, Marilyn Simpson, Julianne Snow and Candis Vargo.
