Download or read book In Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Dr. R. Curtis Royal and published by Author House. This book was released on 2013-02-15 with total page 359 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: IN PLAIN SIGHT SEARCHING FOR A MORE EXCELLENT WAY, addresses the ongoing exodus from western churches. Census records remind us there are two to three times more Christians than go to church. Interestingly, the increase of Christianity in third world countries is remarkable. Western churches are suffering a massive dislocation from both society and from Christianity in general. What is suggested in this book is exactly the sort of process God enables/allows while preparing the next stage of a grand plan in the drama of human redemption. We must search for a more excellent way. Tolerant Spirit is paramount in hearing the voice of the Spirit along the spiritual journey. IN PLAIN SIGHT extends the sacred conversation to all fellow travelers aspiring to discover or regain their spiritual compasses in being faithful to a true and living God who rules and reigns beyond our many fallible conceptions of divine governance in the world, and the interaction of divine initiative and human responsibility. The problem of forging a new paradigm in the churches for a new age is a sacred conversation about rethinking divine activity and personal and corporate faithfulness. We must become much more intentional about developing a theology of grace which thoroughly encompasses serious crises and problems of all spiritual pilgrims, travelers, and persons of sincere faith.

Download or read book Alone in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Ben Higgins and published by Thomas Nelson. This book was released on 2021-02-02 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Are you tired of people knowing who you are but no one really knowing you? As the star of the twentieth season of The Bachelor, Ben Higgins looked like he had it all together. Instead, Ben felt dissatisfied, fearful, and deeply alone. Like so many of us, he thought of himself as the kid who never got picked for the game, the person always on the outside of the joke, the friend who knew a lot of people but was never truly known. He wondered if he mattered at all. In Alone in Plain Sight, Ben vulnerably shares how he found authentic connection with himself, with others, and with God. As Ben helps us name our own yearning for meaning, he explores ways to understand ourselves more deeply so that we are free to connect with others; how shared pain can bridge even the widest gaps between two very different people; why we must deconstruct our culture’s fairy-tale view of love; and how the God who longs for relationship with us is the answer to our need for connection. As Ben discovered, in a disconnected world, it is still possible to have lasting purpose and peace. You are already known. You are already loved. You are already seen. Discover how to live out how much you matter as you embrace the true meaning of your one incredible life.

Download or read book Justice in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Dan Bernstein and published by University of Nebraska Press. This book was released on 2019-01-01 with total page 279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Justice in Plain Sight is the story of a hometown newspaper in Riverside, California, that set out to do its job: tell readers about shocking crimes in their own backyard. But when judges slammed the courtroom door on the public, including the press, it became impossible to tell the whole story. Pinning its hopes on business lawyer Jim Ward, whom Press-Enterprise editor Tim Hays had come to know and trust, the newspaper took two cases to the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1980s. Hays was convinced that the public—including the press—needed to have these rights and needed to bear witness to justice because healing in the aftermath of a horrible crime could not occur without community catharsis. The newspaper won both cases and established First Amendment rights that significantly broadened public access to the judicial system, including the right for the public to witness jury selection and preliminary hearings. Justice in Plain Sight is a unique story that, for the first time, details two improbable journeys to the Supreme Court in which the stakes were as high as they could possibly be (and still are): the public's trust in its own government.
Download or read book Hiding in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Christine Janis and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2000-11 with total page 410 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Imagine for a moment that you're a college professor in Portland, Maine. You've just buried your father, whose sudden death has rocked his family and friends alike, as he was in seemingly perfect health. And now you've inherited the family home, located in the idyllic small town of Timber Falls, Maine, where everyone knows everyone and neighbors still look out for one another. It is a place where strangers are noticed and violent crime does not exist. At about the same time, you are approached by a representative of a development group interested in buying the house and the land, an extensive tract of wooden property with river access. But the owner of the company cannot guarantee that the house will not be destroyed. Knowing that your father put his heart into restoring the home—a Victorian beauty that has been in your family since the 30's—you refuse to sell. But now people are dying on your property. People you've known your whole life. People you love. What do you do? If you're Emma DuValle, you fight. Together with the help of the authorities, she does just that. And along the way, she discovers something that she thought she had lost. Strength...determination...and the will to put the pieces of her life back together and carry on. Emma is helped and hindered along the way by a diverse cast of characters. There is the Russian crime boss in Chicago who wants her land, the agent he employs to get it, and the cold-blooded killer hired to drive her from her home. And there is the local sheriff and the FBI agent who will stop at nothing to uncover the killer and prevent further loss of life. In the end, no one expects what they will find—that the person they’re looking for is right under their noses…hiding in plain sight.

Download or read book Hiding in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Molly Wolf and published by Liturgical Press. This book was released on 1998 with total page 152 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Failing to notice God in daily life may be what keeps us from experiencing the full joy of God's presence. In Hiding in Plain Sight, Molly Wolf shows that, by relating God-talk to the practical and the everyday, we can find love, joy, and God right where we are: "hiding in plain sight." These short, lively pieces pull together the sacred and the human, looking for God in such ordinary things as lilacs, mud season, turtles, dancing ants, a handful of sheep's wool, the turn of the season, and plumbing?all places where Wolf suggests God can be found?not locked in the tabernacle, not hiding behind a mass of complex concepts, not absent from our pain, not out of reach, but here with us, in us, and among us in the laundry, the artwork, and the landscape we walk through. Intelligent, often humorous, always inspiring, Hiding in Plain Sight is the perfect book to keep handy for reflection. Essays are included under the following headings: "Herbs of Grace," "Staring at the Cat Bowl," "'Shall We Gather at the River,'" "Three Landscapes," "Come Wind, Come Weather," "Portraits, Chiefly Fictional," "Living in Sin," "The Hand of the Potter," "Outward and Visible," "Living into Grace," and "The Spinner." "Molly Wolf senses God at work in unexceptional situations?family challenges, generic conversations, natural phenomena, mundane events, friends or others she chances to meet. With earthy substance and uncanny insight she can turn an everyday experience into a serendipitous revelation." Dr. Wayne A. Holst University of Calgary"When Molly was a kid she occupied the duller parts of the church service by sneak-reading the psalms. Now you can follow her example. Take this book to church with you and when the sermon is dull take a peek at one of the chapters! Seriously, this is a splendid down-to-earth book for dipping into. There ought to be a copy by your bedside (and perhaps in your pew)." Terry Waite
Download or read book Hiding in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by James F. Kenny and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2019-10-10 with total page 194 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the role of deceptive tactics in the criminal victimization process, showing how various forms of manipulative aggression can help disguise dangerous advances. The author approaches crime victimization as the final stage in a purposeful, predictable, dynamic, and progressively dangerous process involving interactions between the target and the aggressor. As they prepare for the attack, aggressors may attempt to distract, confuse, and reduce target resistance. While these tactics provide aggressors certain advantages, they can be recognized, anticipated, and managed. By presenting a framework to identify behaviors of concern early in the process, Kenny shows how preventative action can be taken. Proactive intervention may cause aggressors to withdraw before they are fully committed to and confident in their ability to be successful. Those who take steps to reduce vulnerabilities, limit risky behaviors, and avoid dangerous situations can help prevent themselves from being victimized.
Download or read book Hidden in Plain Sight PDF or another Format written by Robert P. Debelak Jr. and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2008-02-15 with total page 170 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Hidden in Plain Sight explores the potential contours of reading biblical narrative. The Old Testament book of Esther is used to advance a prospective shape for this reading method, and proposes a profile for curriculum design. This work demonstrates that the text of Scripture itself proposes a reading method. Esther is an underestimated heroine in her story world. Her character is informed by the silent actions of Vashti and by the intentionality of Mordecai. She is confronted with a writing that challenges her with few options, each of which is deconstructed and focused in community dialogue. At a pivotal stage in the narrative, she acts in solidarity with those under a death threat, emerging as an agent of life. Esther's actions and speeches are traced as one entry into a story world, proposing a means for students of Scripture to gain appreciable reading skills via sensitivity to the general components of Old Testament narrative. This reading informs a study method enabling direct engagement with a text and appreciation for the art of literary crafting. The approach is suitable for Christian education and biblical study settings at the academic level, and for use in local church ministries.
